Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Pachagsí, after being recognized as a legal community, has fought for access to water. The systematization is made on the processes of struggle for access from a review of the history of the first settlers of Pachagsí. It is evident that the community arises from a sad reality: forced and unpaid labor on farms in exchange for grazing animals, the lack of arable land and the lack of water for human consumption and irrigation. All this generated despair and social conflict and, in turn, encouraged the inhabitants to organize and to initiate important processes of struggle for land and water. The life of Luciano Buñay, one of the main leaders of Pachagsí, is the reflection of this struggle for several years to achieve the goal.
