Colombianos buscan refugio en Ecuador y Venezuela
El impacto del conflicto armado interno de Colombia en Ecuador y Venezuela está desestabilizando las regiones fronterizas, al mismo tiempo que miles de colombianos contin=FAan huyendo de su país en busca de refugio. Debido a la presencia creciente de guerrilleros colombianos y grupos paramilitares reorganizados dedicados al narcotráfico en las zonas fronterizas, los gobiernos receptores han militarizado estas regiones con fuerzas de seguridad a fin de combatir las repercusiones violentas.
COLOMBIANS SEEKING REFUGE IN ECUADOR AND VENEZUELA
The impact of Colombia's internal armed conflict on Ecuador and Venezuela is destabilizing border regions while thousands of Colombians continue to flee their country in search of sanctuary. Because of the growing presence of Colombian guerrilla and reorganized paramilitary groups engaged in trafficking narcotics in border areas, host governments have militarized these regions with security forces to combat violent spillover.
A few weeks ago, I traveled to Ecuador and Venezuela to assess the conditions of Colombian refugees. And in one interview after the other, the accounts were both disturbing and similar to those I've heard from internally displaced people in Colombia.
Over the last four years, I have traveled throughout Colombia to visit families and entire communities who have been forced to flee their homes and villages in order to save their lives. I've spent afternoons in neighborhoods made of stilt houses in Tumaco and Buenaventura on the Pacific coast, hearing of fear and despair.
