Defence for Children International (DCI-Colombia) is involved in the area of child labour, a widespread problem in Latin America. Mari´a Cristina Salazar describes the efforts to eradicate child labour in onion plantations in the village of Aquitania and in Bogotá's central market, Corabasto. Aquitania is a rural municipality of 22,000 inhabitants which grows onions, whereas Corabastos is a gigantic corporation which receives 12,000 tons of food daily. A quarter of a million people move around the markets, forming a sort of ‘floating city’. In both Aquitania and Corabastos child labour is rampant; many children less than 12 years old work full- or part-time.Development (2000) 43, 97–100. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110124
