Mural Painting #6

We would surmise to say that the artist in mural painting number 6 has learned so much about the plight of a sugarcane cutter or the so-called “sacada”.

His mural is about these “carga-tapas” heroes or known as “sacadas“. They are immigrant workers coming from the neighboring island, working here just to earn for a living. They are usually no-read-no-write kind of people. Their source of livelihood is to serve other people as a errand or househelpers. And every milling season, they are recruited by a contractor to do sugarcane cutting here in our place wherein a great vast of sugarcane field is located.

His mural depicts the two men fully protected with thick clothes covering their body from the scorching heat of the sun, while cutting sugarcane.

At a distance the sugar mill is spewing heavy smoke for it is in operation, milling the sugarcane. You can see a CAC sign in one of the big chimneys. CAC which stands for Central Azucarera de la Carlota.
