Bogotà, 'la migrazione non si ferma col filo spinato nel Darien'

epa10875475 Migrants line up to be transferred in canoes to the humanitarian shelters of Lajas Blancas, at the indigenous town of Bajo Chiquito, Panama, 15 September 2023 (issued 21 September 2023). According to official data provided by Panama, more than 385,000 people have crossed the Darien so far this year, a record number compared to 248,000 in all of 2022, the largest record to date. The UN rights office (OHCHR) on 05 September warned that the unprecedented number of migrants who continue to cross the dense tropical jungle between Colombia and Panama known as the Darien Gap are risking their lives and facing horrific human rights abuses. Panama has already prepared three migration centers to provide shelter, food, health care and water and sanitation for those on the move, however, capacity remains stretched, and the OHCHR warned that amid rising numbers of incoming refugees and migrants, providing protection and aid was increasingly challenging for the authorities.

BOGOTÀ, 09 LUG - Il presidente della Colombia, Gustavo Petro, ha criticato la decisione di Panama di chiudere almeno tre dei valichi utilizzati dai migranti per attraversare la giungla del Darien, che segna la frontiera tra i due Paesi, passaggio obbligato per i migranti sudamericani diretti verso gli Stati Uniti. "Il filo spinato nella giungla porterà solo ad annegati in mare", ha affermato. Secondo Petro "la migrazione può essere fermata rimuovendo i blocchi economici e migliorando l'economia del sud".
