Ancestral coca in Yungas, Bolivia

‘Girl power’ is written on the cap of coca farmer Ramiro. He uses the catapult to warn the birds from his coca plants. Ramiro cultivates coca, like his ancestors, in an organic manner. Of course, like his ancestors, he cultivates coca for medicinal and nutritional purposes.

Ramiro expresses his fear for the helicopters, that are circulating through the mountains. Ramiro says these helicopters are from China, on an expedition, searching for lithium and silver.
