zona campesina

"small farmer reserve zone" - see the video below about this zone, one of various attempts in Colombia to create safe/peace spaces - also called humanitarian zones, peace laboratories, peace communities, communities for dignity and life, communities in resistance, and I'm sure other names that I've missed.

In articles about the ACVC, I have usually translated ZRC as Rural Agricultural Reserve.

thanks Dan! The only thing about Rural is that it sounds like it could also be used by big agri-business (which the Agricultural Land Reserve around the city of Vancouver has plenty of)
