Embera communities in various regions of the country are displaced and threatened by the conflict.
Various Colombian congressmen from their official Twitter accounts denounced this Thursday the forced displacement of 168 indigenous people from the community of Turriquitadó, in the department of Antioquia, Colombia.
The senator for the Comunes party, Sandra Ramírez blamed the president of that nation, Iván Duque, and specified that, “in Murindó, Antioquia, 48 Embera families flee from the horror of the war through mined roads to save their lives where illegal armed groups they threatened and displaced them. Why do you insist on ignoring the reality of the country and of the most vulnerable?
“Embera communities in various regions of the country are displaced and threatened by the conflict. Their lives are in danger!” said the former combatant of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army. She also denounced the legislator that in the Wayú community in La Guajira, children die of malnutrition and do not have drinking water.
