Info

Alejandro Higa, a farmer of Japanese descent born in 1948, has lived all his life in the neighborhood. Higa has a title for his acreage (most in the area do not) and says what the government is offering him is unfair. As of mid-March 2013, Higa and his wife had not left their home, but the rest of the residents are gone. For decades, dozens of Japanese families grew produce in the area. Higa's farm is the last in Callao.
