In a globalized world, the pursuit of a better future means that large numbers of people seek refuge in the most prosperous areas. Their need to reach the promised land takes them to the frontier between the legal and the illegal, which is more visible in contexts where temporary labor is needed. That is particularly the case of the strawberry growing fields in the province of Huelva, Spain, where temporary settlements are overcrowded with immigrants during the harvesting season. This article describes the systemic and symbolic violence that takes place in these contexts.

Keywords : Migration; liminality; violence; resistance; Huelva; Spain.
