This chapter narrates the regional history of Ichilo and Obispo Santiesteban, two centrally important areas of rice and soy production, respectively, which have now become centers of Movimiento Sin Tierra organizing in Santa Cruz. It charts resource extraction from the regional periphery to urban centers. This resource extractivism involves the transport of timber from the forests of Ichilo or soybeans from Obispo Santiesteban. The chapter illustrates how the illegal timber trade and export of soybeans create an uneven landscape between rural peripheries and urban areas. Borders were created between sites of extraction and consumption, forging territorial, racial, and gendered divides between producing rural peripheries and modern city centers. These borderlands are patrolled, reinforced, and maintained through subversion, intimidation, and violence.

Keywords:   Ichilo, Obispo Santiesteban, Movimiento Sin Tierra, Santa Cruz, resource extractivism, illegal timber trade
