Escasez de agua y revueltas populares mayas en plena ciudad de Guatemala

Kaminal Juyú, la ciudad maya más grande del período preclásico, se sitúa en pleno corazón de la ciudad de Guatemala. Algunos indicios señalan que fue habitada por más de 50 mil habitantes.

Kaminal Juyú, tiene hoy muchas cosas que enseñar. Excavaciones muy recientes señalan que es posible que se hayan sucedido revueltas populares ante la escasez del AGUA.

Ciudad de Guatemala, 2007.

Acrópolis de Kaminal Juyú

“… se han desenterrado partes de estelas en donde se observa a un hombre viejo… esos hallazgos hacen suponer que se trata de un gobernante y que éste o su sucesor enfrentaron un levantamiento popular al escasear el AGUA” señala la arqueóloga Lorena Paiz y la directora del sitio arqueológico Bárbara Arroyo, en entrevista realizada por Prensa Libre (29/03/2011):

http://prensalibre.com/noticias/busca-origen-Kaminaljuyu_0_452954729.html

Para ser parte de la noticia tomé una fotografía de las citadas excavaciones (iniciadas en enero 2011). Es deseable conocer los resultados finales de la investigación arqueológica, pero los primeros indicios ya señalan más muestras de la ALTÍSIMA RELEVANCIA que tuvo el abastecimiento de AGUA para la instalación de la imponente Kaminal Juyú:

En efecto, hace cientos de años, esta ciudad maya poseía un cuerpo de agua, lago Miraflores, que sustentaba las actividades económicas, rituales y de desarrollo urbanístico de la época. Cuando se visita el Museo Miraflores (ciudad de Guatemala) es posible retornar al pasado, viendo los vestigios de la ciudad; de hecho, el museo posee una maqueta subterránea de la “Kaminal Juyú maya” que muestra su ubicación en relación con las calles y avenidas actuales:

En esta fotografía tomada por mi amiga Rita con su celular, señalo ¡¡justamente el lugar de las excavaciones citadas en la noticia!!. En la imagen se puede apreciar la existencia del Lago Miraflores (también denominado “laguna de los tiestos”).

Actualmente, Kaminal Juyú es una “gran desconocida” para el ciudadano de la urbe de siglo XXI, quien suele ignorar su valor histórico:

Esta situación nos debe hacer reflexionar sobre el hecho de que “el agua HA SIDO, ES y SERÁ un tema de SEGURIDAD CIUDADANA e incluso de SEGURIDAD NACIONAL”. Un colega hidrogeólogo me decía esta semana: “La situación del agua en la ciudad capital es una bomba de tiempo”… y esta noticia arqueológica aporta más datos para creérnoslo.

Nuestro análisis debe conducirnos a meditar sobre nuestra relación como ciudadanos (gobernantes y gobernados) con el agua. Es importante reflexionar si nuestros gobernantes están dispuestos a asumir este ENORME reto del agua o si más bien desean “echar la basurita debajo de la alfombra” y seguir menospreciando nuestra capacidad analítica con “canciones de feria”… pero OJO, la situación actual del abastecimiento de agua de la ciudad capital es INSOSTENIBLE.

Agua, ríos y pueblos: exposición fotográfica 2011 en Guatemala

La asociación “Agua, ríos y pueblos” inaugurará el próximo 22 de marzo 2011 en el Palacio Nacional de la Cultura de Guatemala la exposición fotográfica “AGUA, RÍOS Y PUEBLOS”, y que se mantendrá en Guatemala durante algunos meses en diversos departamentos del país.

Vale la pena señalar que la Ciudad de Guatemala mantendrá abierta esta exposición del 22 de marzo al 22 de abril de 2011 y que luego se traslada a otros puntos del país.

El web site de la Asociación describe la exposición como “el perfil humano de los conflictos y de las luchas del agua. A través de fotografías y testimonios directos, los afectados dejan de ser una fría estadística para comunicarnos en directo sus angustias, razones y esperanzas”.

Sabemos que la exposición en Guatemala también ha querido mostrar el rostro de las buenas prácticas del agua en el país, para evitar centrarse únicamente en los aspectos negativos de la conflictividad o la exclusión. Esto hace pertinente un encuentro de las necesidades y los retos con las respuestas.
