AEP 58: Mafiosity, the current stage of Colombian capitalism

Mafiosity may not be the highest stage, but it is definitely the current stage

Manuel is back on the show for this one. How does an Indigenous community that has recovered land and autonomy end up back under state authority? How does a territory go from winning a life and death struggle for food sovereignty to growing a hemp monoculture? And how do mafias and ultra-rightwing (fascist) political movements work together to destroy everything?
