Resumen

En este artículo se discuten las dificultades, tensiones y conflictos que emergen en la construcción de casos de violaciones a derechos humanos relacionadas con minería. El artículo se concentra principalmente en los retos que enfrentan abogados y activistas de derechos humanos Colombia. Entre esos retos se encuentran: 1) La relación entre derechos humanos y minería, que implican paradigmas jurídicos, políticos y epistémicos cualitativamente distintos y obligan a la reelaboración en las formas de trabajo de quienes participan en los casos; 2) las disputas concretas en torno al estatus de verdad de los datos que sustentan las pruebas y los argumentos jurídicos, políticos y morales; 3) las diferentes formas de la muerte, que deben ser capturadas a través de prácticas, epistemologías e instituciones que no siempre son las adecuadas.

 

Palabras clave: movimientos sociales, carbón, extractivismo, expertos, ong, saberes,

derechos humanos, antropología jurídica.

 

Abstract:

 

On speed of death, its forms of capture and the coal extraction in Cerrejón

 

Abstract: This paper discusses the tensions and conflicts that emerge in the processes of making cases of human rights violations linked to mining extraction. I focus on the challenges that human rights lawyers and activists, who have become experts in the art of assembling cases of human rights related to political violence in a context of war face when confronted to the making of human rights cases related to mining. Among these challenges are: 1) the relation between human rights and mining, which involve legal, political and epistemic paradigms that are often different, forcing the actors involved to reelaborate them; 2) the disputes on the truth status of the date used to sustain judicial, moral and political arguments and proofs; 3) different modalities of death that need to be captured, often with epistemological and political tools that are not always adequate.

 

Keywords: social movements, coal, extractivism, experts, ngo’s.
