We seek the construction of self-dependence; establish organic relationships; design our future based on the culture, the natural environment and the legal framework of the country. The peasants have assumed their organizational role with seriousness and therefore are convinced of the urgency of getting to know themselves and their social and natural environments. Only to the extent that such knowledge is profound, we will have the certainty that our proposals to advance the processes are correct, although later they require adjustments or, even, changes of course.
For this reason, we have constructed a research methodology suited to these conditions that we call Minga Investigativa (MI). The MI recognizes and values ancestral and empirical knowledge, while recognizing that generated in the academy. Through IM, explanations have been found to many of the events that take place around us, such as the similarities and differences with other sectors of the population to autonomously project the future. The MI has promoted autonomy and allows the peasants to be able to identify alternative solutions within the constitutional and legal frameworks, respecting their history, cultural tradition, social and natural environment and different visions.
In this way the mingueros play a leading role in their community, some with greater ability to be proactive and creative because they are natural leaders of the same, and therefore assume responsibilities with the local well-being, which is not different from the pursuit of happiness. Therefore, we begin by defining local needs, omitting the impositions of a political or economic nature with which they have historically manipulated us. We continually learn to make use of the tools that the so-called democracy has created without us, which has allowed us to know human rights, the Colombian constitution, the laws and other norms established for citizen participation; We also lead actions by observing those who, in the supposed use of their freedom, threaten our life or our environment. Consequently, the management for local living is based on what we call Social Right, which is an attempt to socialize the law, demystify it and remove it from legal offices.
We think that our voices should be heard, that is why we have become involved in a communications network in which we seek that those who reach our tuning stay with us enjoying the guarantee that what is said is true. Our country continues to build with many positive experiences, but also with the lies that overwhelm us in the media.
With pride, but with humility, we recognize that this path traveled in the midst of joys and sorrows, is successful but should continue to enrich itself in a dynamic way. That is why we decided to share our achievements and gaps with others who, like us, have been able to design their dreams and execute them. To enjoy with others what is ours and what is theirs, is what we do in the international event called “Disoñadores”: men and women committed to the task of shaping the illusions with their hands and making them real in any part of the world.
