Con Mikel Ayestarán, colaborador de RFI en Katmandú

La incertidumbre y el miedo llevan a miles de ciudadanos de Katmandú a intentar abandonar la ciudad. Algunos buscan seguridad en puntos alejados del terremoto, pero otros quieren viajar simplemente a las zonas devastadas porque son sus lugares de origen y allí viven sus familias. Son zonas remotas de montaña con muy malas comunicaciones y donde los equipos de rescate llegan poco a poco gracias a los helicópteros.

Esta angustia se ha traducido en la mañana del miércoles en enfrentamientos con las fuerzas de seguridad nepalíes que tuvieron que sofocar a palos las protestas de la gente que se quejaba por la falta de transporte.

"Llevamos esperando desde el alba. Nos dijeron que habría 250 autobuses pero no ha llegado ninguno", indicó Kishor Kavre, un estudiante de 25 años que quiere marcharse de la capital en ruinas.

"Estamos impacientes por regresar a casa para ver a nuestras familias pero no sabemos cuándo vendrán (los autobuses)", explicó.

Pero la vida sigue, y después de 24 horas sin réplicas, algunos se han animado en la capital a abrir las persianas de sus tiendas y cafeterías. Nos dicen que no se puede vivir eternamente en el miedo y que es momento de mirar hacia delante.

El gobierno ha decretado tres días de luto oficial y admite su impotencia para ingresar en ciertos lugares desde donde cada día siguen llegando heridos y cadáveres a los hospitales de la capital. Las autoridades calculan que la cifra de muertos podría alcanzar los 10.000.

El tráfico ha vuelto también a las principales arterias de Katmandú, pero nadie se confía. Basta con mirar a parques y plazas para ver las miles de tiendas donde esta noche también
volverán a dormir los ciudadanos por miedo a las réplicas.

Protesters Block Traffic, Clash With Police In Kathmandu

www.ibtimes.com/nepal-earthquake-update-protester...

hace 4 horas - Earthquake victims argue with policemen during a protest against the government's lack of aid provided to the victims in Kathmandu, Nep

 

Protests over lack of aid to earthquake-affected areas in Nepal intensified in Kathmandu on Wednesday, where about 200 people blocked traffic on city roads. Protesters, demanding that aid delivery be speeded up, also confronted Nepal’s Prime Minister Sushil Koirala during his visit to a hospital in the capital city, according to media reports.

“We are hungry, we haven't had anything to drink. We haven't been able to sleep. I have a 7-year-old child who is sleeping in the open. It's getting cold and people are getting pneumonia,” a protester in the streets of Kathmandu reportedly said, accusing the government of not doing enough.

The protests reportedly started when free buses, promised by the government to those wanting to leave Kathmandu, failed to appear. Following Saturday’s disaster, which has killed more than 5,000 people according to the latest casualty count, hundreds of thousands of people have fled the capital, crippling the region’s fragile transport infrastructure.

Earlier on Tuesday, Nepal’s government acknowledged that “some weaknesses” had been found in managing relief operations in the country. Meanwhile, international aid agencies have warned of impending disease outbreaks in the affected districts.

“Even people who have relatively minor injuries, unless they are treated they are at risk of infection,” Sean Casey, who is heading the earthquake response effort for the International Medical Corps in Kathmandu, told the Guardian. “Water and sanitation is also a serious concern for people who are isolated. This area is prone to cholera and we could see disease outbreak.”

Another factor that could severely crimp search, rescue and rehabilitation efforts in remote regions is the threat of landslides and mudslides. According to a new risk assessment carried out by researchers from the University of Michigan, tens of thousands of locations are currently at high risk.

“There will still be slopes that have not yet failed but were weakened. So there will be a continued risk during aftershocks and with the recent rainfall, and again when the monsoon rains arrive this summer,” Marin Clark, a geomorphologist at the university, reportedly said, adding that the region at highest risk for landslides and mudslides is the mountainous area along the Nepal-Tibet border, west of Mount Everest.

Todo esto es indesligable de la política y por ello esta también se observa. Ecology, social and environmental sustainability, emphasis on conservation of rivers and ecosystems, denounces impact of megaprojects. All this is inseparable from politics, for it, the politics is also evaluated.
