In this article we characterize two civil initiatives in the municipalities of Planadas and Cha-parral, which were conceived to counteract the difficulties caused by the armed conflict and were necessary for the generation of a culture of peace in southern Tolima (Colombia). By means of a qualitative methodology, different approaches were made to collectives and social organizations, developing case studies with interviews, participant observation and participatory communication diagnostics. It was concluded that the neglect of the State and the pressure of the armed conflict were determining factors in the civil mobilization of the communities affected by the war, establishing a position of resistance that generated bonds of union and social fabric.
