Abstract: The Colombian state is planning to build roads, hydroelectric facilites, ports, and a land bridge to compete with the Panama Canal in the largely untouched rainforest of El Choco. The plan would displace 110,000 indigenous people and the Embera, Waunana, and Awa nations are attempting to these efforts and save El Choco.
