Some streets of La Victoria have become camps for displaced people seeking to return to their regions. The drama of Covid-19 forced migration continues and escalates hourly. At the time of this registration, some had been out in the open for weeks, while very few managed to leave. Right in the middle of Labor Day, many will leave because they lost everything they had here.

Algunas calles de La Victoria se han convertido en campos de desplazados que buscan regresar a sus regiones. El drama de la migración forzada por el Covid-19 continúa y se agrava a cada hora. Al momento de este registro, algunos llevaban semanas a la intemperie, mientras muy pocos lograban partir. En pleno Día del Trabajo, muchos se irán porque aquí lo perdieron todo.
