Peru's unpaid agrarian bonds: My family's quest
1 year ago ago
LIMA, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- Tashta Ocharutunan, in the department of Ancash, about 800 kilometers (500 miles) north of Lima, is the name of my family's expropriated farm. It had belonged to the Pretel family since 1913, but then--one day in July 1969--the military came and told my family to leave. My father called me over the telephone. "Son, we have been made poor. We have nothing to eat, not even a sheep or a loaf of bread."
