The River Cauca in Colombia has become a graveyard. Until recently, the bodies of unnamed victims of the armed conflict were thrown in the river. Now, Colombia is trying to recover from the violence of the last decades. New economic projects are being set up, but not everyone is benefitting from them. This podcast looks at the significance of bodies and memory, the particular role of the River Cauca, and the efforts of Ríos Vivos to reclaim it.
