72 migrantes, homenaje luctuoso en formato multidisciplinario

Miguel Ángel Cárcamo, jornalero hondureño; Wilmer Antonio Velásquez, jovencito salvadoreño; Telmo Leonidas Yupa Chimborazo, joven, adolecente, ecuatoriano.

Los anteriores son sólo algunos nombres de los 72 migrantes hallados hace un año en una fosa clandestina en Tamaulipas, algunos de los nombres identificados, de humanos asesinados a sangre fría, torturados y arrojados a una cuneta al costado de la carretera. 72 en un mismo sitio, número simbólico de una cifra aún desconocida y que desnuda la odisea que viven decenas de miles que atraviesan nuestro país en búsqueda del sueño americano, un viaje que se ejecuta entre autobuses y locomotoras, en el más absoluto desamparo.

Juan Villoro, Elena Poniatowska, Jorge Volpi, Alejandro Almazán, Lolita Bosch, Sergio Aguayo, Braulio Peralta, Tony Arnau, Francisco Mata. Estos nombres sí que son conocidos. Escritores, narradores, periodistas, ensayistas, académicos, fotógrafos, personajes mediáticos. Personajes que colaboraron con su talento para dar voz a aquellas vidas que se apagaron presas de la incompetencia gubernamental y el crimen organizado.

72 cráneos de azúcar, 72 paliacates, 72 flores gigantes, 72 textos, 72 fotografías, 72 migrantes abatidos. Cientos de deudos. Todo ello puede observarse en un altar erigido en el Museo de la Ciudad de México, donde, el pasado miércoles 2 de noviembre, en plena celebración del Día de Muertos, Elizabeth Palacios, Guillermo Osorno y Alma Guillermoprieto encabezaron la presentación del volumen impreso del proyecto homónimo: 72 migrantes, libro publicado por el prestigioso sello editorial Almadía.

En el proyecto, tomo publicado y página web, participaron decenas de profesionales. La iniciativa, surgida casi de inmediato a los hechos acaecidos en agosto de 2010, pretendió erigirse desde el primer momento en una especie de altar mortuorio en memoria de los caídos. Un altar multidisciplinario en donde texto, imagen, voz, música ofrecieran un crisol de interpretaciones.

“En este país no se cuentan ya historias, se cuentan muertos; y si se llegan a contar historias, son de muertos”, por eso –declaró Elizabeth Palacios, periodista de carrera, especialista en derechos humanos– las historias del libro “están contadas para recordar a los muertos, para que no se conviertan en una cifra, (…) porque no nos queremos acostumbrar a la violencia.”

Por su parte, Alma Guillermoprieto, cabeza visible del proyecto, agradeció la participación de todos los colaboradores de un proyecto planificado para exponer el gran malestar y vergüenza que, como mexicanos, nos causó el conocimiento de dicha tragedia: “Hay un reconocimiento de que todos, absolutamente todos, somos migrantes. Todos cambiamos de ciudad, todos queremos una vida mejor, todos sabemos que nuestra vida es incierta en México.”

Lo que le puedo decir, señorita, es que a mi hijito me lo mataron allá en su país, poco antes de llegar al otro lado. Como sabe, andaba junto con otros pobres que también lo dejaron TODO para ir en busca de una mejor vida. Sí, fíjese qué cosa más terrible: nos lo mataron, según dicen que fueron unos narcotraficantes que se hacen llamar Los Zetas, gente mala, Dios mío, gente sin sentimientos. Si viera, señorita. Lloré, le rogué a mi hijo que no se fuera y mire nada más cómo terminaron las cosas: me lo quitaron. Declaró la madre de Juan Adolfo Chirinos Padilla a Karla Lottini, ejemplo del sufrimiento que deja una vida segada. Ejemplo de los textos incluidos en el proyecto.
