Encontré a un antiguo líder del comando que tomó a mi padre de rehén

Dedico este video y este texto a mi hermana mayor, Diana. Es mi regalo de Navidad a mi querida “Dudú” …

Colombia, 17 de diciembre 2009, frontera entre Colombia y Ecuador:

Mientras hacía la cola en la oficina de control de pasaportes, Rafael de la Rubia me llamó aparte y me dijo en voz […]

Todos contra todos en el zoológico – un día con Juanes

Aquí estoy, escribiendo desde Ecuador, tratando de que mi conciencie integre todo lo ocurrido en Colombia. Hemos recibido una de las mejores recepciones de la Marcha Mundial de todo el recorrido, hasta el momento, tal vez incluso ha sido la mejor y, por lejos, hemos tenido el mayor éxito en términos de cobertura en los […]

Colombia – Mi cuento con Anderson

LA rencontre de "ma" marche… Anderson, 10 ans.

Esta noche viví, sin duda, el momento más fuerte de “mi” Marcha.

Durante todo el día nuestra Marcha local fue seguida ampliamente por miles de colombianos que vinieron a apoyar nuestra causa. Una marea humana, hasta donde alcanza la vista, […]

(English) Cape Town!

(English) Today was the last day of our route, and we can say that we closed on a high note! Cape Town is a beautiful and unique city, here is where the waters of the Indic and the Atlantic oceans meet. People are very relaxed and friendly.

Today we had a fantastic meeting in the […]

(English) Do you know the way to San José?

(English) I’m not sure Dionne Warwick was talking about San José, Costa Rica when she sang, “I’ve got lots of friends in San José.” However, the lyrics fit perfectly.

Finally, after more than 70 countries through which the World March has passed we reach a country without an army and you can immediately feel the […]

La marcha mundial por la Paz y nuestras marchas en Nicaragua

Recibimos el siguiente e-mail justo antes de nuestra llegada en Nicaragua…

Estimados hermanos:

El día 21 de noviembre en Managua, Nicaragua, se realizaron dos grandes marchas políticas y partidarias que se visualizaban como un choque de trenes con un gran derramamiento de sangre si se llevaban a cabo, según los planes de los organizadores y […]

(English) El Salvador

(English) When I was a little boy I had an atlas and I was fascinated by the little countries of the world. I studied everything about Liechtenstein until one day I discovered El Salvador! It was so far away and so exotic; I never imagined ever coming here and now here I am…

The country […]

(English) Guatebuena – Not Guatemala (and Honduras)

(English) The day after our spectacular welcome in Tapachula we were up at 5:00am to head for the border and enter Guatemala. Guatemala is a land of myth and magic, of Mayan culture and indigenous struggles, of beautiful landscapes and terrible violence, of abundance and exploitation. The programme was intense so we had to split […]

(English) (Français) La Marche bénie par les descendants des Mayas (Guatémala) et par les Garifundas (Honduras)

Nous faisons l’expérience de phénomènes de “sychronicité” étonnants. Alors que nous parcourons des centaines de kilomètres en autocar avec des retards énormes pour mille raisons, nous arrivons toujours sur les lieux des événements organisés pour la Marche Mondiale à la seconde même où un rituel de bénédictions commence, où nous devons prendre le micro, […]
