Abstract

In the south of Tolima, a region recognized and at the same time stigmatized by the occurrence of episodes related to the internal armed conflict of the country, which involved diverse actors among them: armed groups and civil population, the latter had to condition all its productive and social activity, to survive and resist the violence presented in its territory.

In the research project "Citizen Communication Processes for Peace in Southern Tolima", citizen initiatives led by peasant women and men were evidenced, which were organized with the purpose of creating civil resistance against situations that placed them as victims of the armed conflict. This began with the creation of productive and social associations that directly and indirectly contributed to the construction of scenarios of peace in their territories, through processes of management and organization that demonstrated the empowerment of the population to reject in a decisive manner the dynamics that generate inequality and poverty in their daily lives.

Based on the qualitative paradigm through the case study method and the realization of participatory communication diagnostics on community organizations, the study was carried out in four municipalities in southern Tolima (Ataco, Planadas, Chaparral and Rioblanco). This study resulted in a mapping of productive organizations focused on the production and commercialization of agricultural products, community media and social organizations.
