Many former rural residents turned city dwellers have grabbed the opportunity to start a profitable business, coming back to their original communities, and in some cases causing conflicts.
"These newcomers are getting back to their villages thanks to the subsides of the government, breaking the previous organisation of the community.
They come, seed and go away, without taking part in the community assembly," said Vladimir Orsag, a researcher at San Andres Mayor University.
At least two sides, and probably many, many more. I suppose the question is whether in the overall balance of things having city dwelling ex-rural residents return to their land to seen and harvest a profitable crop does greater good, or greater damage to the rural community, and the country as a whole. My bet is that overall, it´s a good thing.
It is an interesting quote that you pulled. Let´s analyze it: "newcomers" (who are actually rural residents turned city dwellers.. not "newcomers" at all. ) have come back to their original communities to engage in a profitable business. My guess is that they are farming land that they had abandoned years ago when they were driven out of the countryside by lack of opportunity and terrorism, but now they have returned to "seed and go away"... clearly not feeling the need to live in the small town which they left years before, a place which offers their families limited education and limited health care, prefering instead to maintain their homes in the city and farm from afar - which they can now do thanks to the much improved telecomunication and vial network that now exists.
It would be nice to have a bit more information about the "subsidies" that are mentioned, and how their lack of participation in the community is harmful.
