Amicus curiae has been presented before the Constitutional Court of Colombia in the process of guardianship of the Ciénaga Grande de Santa Marta

The fundamentals of the amicus seek to prove violations of fundamental rights, environmental degradation and the inaction of the competent authorities. We consider that the case requires a structural response, in which the different entities with competence over the region participate and dialogue, always guaranteeing the participation of the communities. We believe that this is a case for ideal to carry out a model of dialogical justice in Colombia, to look for a structural solution to the problem, to carry out public hearings where all the parties involved have the possibility to be heard and to carry out a control active by the State.

One of lime and one of sand in the case against Porta Hnos.

I see I see what do you see? One thing. What thing? Wonderful. And like this children's game the situation continues and the state does not appear. Córdoba adds one more case of absence of the authorities before a socio-environmental conflict. The actions of those who govern us are worrisome and alarming. This time it was the turn of the National State as defendant. The public hearing of conciliation lacked those who represented the company Porta Hnos S.A., which in the end is a private subject, and those who did it representing the State.

Derecho a un ambiente libre de agroquímicos

FUNDEPS junto con vecinos de las localidades de Falda del Carmen y Colonia Tirolesa presentamos petitorios ante la Secretaría de Ambiente y Cambio Climático de la Provincia de Córdoba, solicitando la adopción de las medidas necesarias para garantizar el derecho a un ambiente sano respecto de la aplicación de agroquímicos.

El Eje de Ambiente del Área de Derechos Humanos viene trabajando desde principios de año con los vecinos de dichas localidades, los que nos han puesto en conocimiento de las situaciones que atraviesan con motivo de la aplicación de estos productos en zonas muy cercanas a sus barrios o a las escuelas donde asisten sus hijos, y las consecuencias negativas que esto viene provocando en la salud de los habitantes. Hay quienes reciben en sus viviendas de forma directa la deriva de los agrotóxicos, atento que solo los separa un alambrado del campo donde se realiza la fumigación.
