Colombia: Colombia – Flash Update No. 1: Restricciones al acceso en Segovia y Remedios (Antioquia)

UN OCHA maps - 1 hour 57 min ago
Source: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs Country: Colombia

Desde el 21 de julio en el marco de un paro minero que se lleva a cabo en los municipios de Segovia y Remedios, al menos 5.500 familias (22.000 personas, ver tabla anexa) pertenecientes a comunidades indígenas, afrocolombianos y campesinos de zona rural y urbana[1], presentan restricciones al acceso de alimentos, bienes, servicios, y movilidad como resultado de las confrontaciones entre mineros artesanales (manifestantes) y la fuerza pública. Hay información sobre desplazamientos de familias debido a la presión para participar en dichas protestas y también por violaciones a los derechos humanos.

Estas 22.000 personas requieren garantizar la seguridad alimentaria debido al desabastecimiento de alimentos que se presenta por el cierre de comercio y las vías bloqueadas para el acceso a los municipios; también hay cierre de instituciones educativas y cese total del servicio de transporte público. Las familias no cuentan con recursos para suplir sus necesidades, ya que sus ingresos son generados por trabajos informales (mototaxistas, boleteros, chatarreras, etc). De manetenerse esta situación, se podría estar configurando una situación de confinamiento, y agravando la respuesta a los sectores ya afectados.

[1] En Segovía las comunidades más afectadas están en las veredas agro-mineras de Cañaveral, Lejanías, Santa Marta y la comunidad indígena de los Baquiaza Yanasa con aproximadamente 303 familias, además de 700 familias en la zona urbana.
