Alberto, come eat!

It's French cooking ...

but local-style!

When you're broke,

it all tastes good

I like people who're hungry

It's why I learned all

my secrets as a chef

Soon ...!

You'll have your restaurant

in Marseilles

Yes, I'll have my own restaurant

And not only that!

Other ideas?

What do they want?

Never mind! Eat!

Soldiers always

mean trouble

Listen everyone!

This concerns all of you!

Hurry up!

Let's see what's up!

Pursuant to Art 36

of the Constitution ...

and Art 8 of the

Law of May 8th, 1945 ...

we hereby declare that ...

all diamond mining

in the Guluve Valley ...

must stop immediately

All diamond rights are

exclusively reserved ...

for the State or those

designated by the Governor

The decree takes

effect as of tomorrow

All miners and their equipment ...

must leave today

Signed by the

Provincial Governor Roberto Guzman

Go tell the others!

What's it mean?

It means we're bein' kicked out!


The State wants our claims!

No! They belong to us!

We've been had!

I'll go talk to Captain Ferrero!

Right! Let's go!

Those who wanna see Ferrero,

follow me!

The men sound upset

You're worried?

Play! Then you won't hear them!

There'll be trouble!

Quiet, Lieutenant! Let me think!

Captain, a delegation

wants to see you!

How many?

At least 40

I'll see them

according to regulations

You understand?

Do it, then send them in

Another man lost!

Calm down!

The captain'll see you but ...

first ya have to check your arms

You'll get'em back as you leave.

That's the rule!

Well, Alberto?

We won't give'em our guns!

But we're here to talk!

Ya think we can talk to

men like them?

Be careful, comrades!

Right! An unarmed man

carries no weight!

So let's go!

Checkmate, Captain!

They won't give us their guns

I'm becoming fed up with those men

Lieutenant, get rid of that rabble!

At once, Captain!

We wanna talk to the captain!

Calm down, comrades!

Form ranks!

I wanna talk to the captain!


Prepare arms!


Reload arms!


Let him go! He's not a local

Any cigarettes?

You're right! It's unfair!

Dammit, what'll we do?

We got hardly any guns!

If they get reinforcement,

we're done for!

The strong get justice an their own!

The weak just shut up!

Ya have to choose!


We can't let them bastards

screw up our lives!

They fire and we ran like sissies!

They took us by surprise!

But it ain't over!


Not a word!


Go to hell!

What's up?

You ain't very talkative!

Leave her alone!

Who're you?

I'm her dad! If ya had kids,

you'd act the same way!

Papas shouldn't talk big!

Lemme go!

Ya old fart!

It's OK now! Don't worry!

Did he hurt you? The bastard!

Are your shoes OK?

The claims're ours!

Talk'll do no good!

We gotta fight!

He's right!

We'll occupy our sites tomorrow!

Bring guns! We'll need'em!

There's about 40 or them

and over 200 of us!

They won't dare attack us!

What if they do?

The strong of today are

tomorrow's weak!

Who's he think he is?

Father Lizardi, the missionary

What's he buttin' in for?

It's my duty to warn you!

You'll be killed!

I ain't so sure!

We can't let'em fleece

us like sheep!

We ain't scared of Ferrero!

Colonel Sandman's men are only

a day's march away

Can't you see?

We'll see later!

It'll be a useless massacre!

It'll end in ruthless repression!

Padre, you only been here two weeks.

Mind your own business!

Go convert some natives

and get off our backs!

We're big boys now!

We don't need your advice!

You'll gain nothing this way!

He who lives by the sword ...

shall perish by the sword!
