In the history of the human species one of the key factors in determining the evolution of peoples has been the presence of geographical barriers between populations. Mountains, oceans and deserts limited the sharing of knowledge and technology, slowing the progress of certain areas of the world over others. That same history saw men seeking solutions to overcome those natural barriers and at the same time building artificial ones: walls to defend ourselves from whom we identify as enemy, from whom might weaken us and undermine our identity. After thousands of years, these two thrusts -of research for progress and conservation- they are unchanged. Under a wall at the center of political debate, who they are, what they live and what they choose the true protagonists of a no men’s land.
