In this mini-documentary, we can hear some of the human stories behind the so-called migrant caravan from 2018; but also get some context about what caused the economic and politic crisis that countries like Honduras and Guatemala have been suffering in the past decades. Thanks to the abusive and controlling practices of the American corporation, United Fruit Company.
We live in a complex world. It's easy to see the big daily happenings that occur every day without thinking for a moment about their context and history.
There are many social issues around the world, and they need to be fixed. However, they haven't been repaired over generations for many reasons. One of the reasons is precisely the optic about for whom a problem is such a thing.
I'm going to write an article about this in the future, but for now, I want to share with you a small portion of the perspective I discovered while walking along with the now famous migrant caravan.
There are many opinions and ideas about these people and why are they on their way to the US. Well, this is not the first caravan but the biggest. Also, there is some data to help us to understand from a historical perspective, what is going on in Central America and the conditions where its citizens have to live every day.
