Beyond Hong Kong, Media Ignores Global Protests

Model Mama Cax Lost Her Leg to Cancer and, Years Later, Handcycled the NYC Marathon

 Cache   

At age 14, blogger and model Mama Cax, born Cacsmy Brutus and who refers to herself as Cax, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer. It spread to her lungs, and after chemo and an unsuccessful hip replacement, she received a hemipelvectomy, an amputation that removed her right leg and part of her hip bone. It required her to use crutches and a prosthetic leg.

The Haitian-American, now 29, has a flourishing lifestyle brand and career as a model. She's graced the runway at the 2016 White House #DesignForAll Fashion Show, been in campaigns for Olay and Tommy Hilfiger, walked in New York Fashion Week, and been named one of Glamour's Women of the Year All Year 2019. Cax's next feat, though, involved a handcycle and 26.2 miles: the 2019 New York City Marathon.

Through the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), Cax, who openly campaigns for disability awareness, was able to get a grant for a handcycle and used that to train. "They're basically an organization that provide equipment for anyone who's interested in joining sports and wants to find adaptive ways to do it," she told POPSUGAR. "What I really like about them is that you don't have to participate in sports competitively to be able to get a grant for equipment." Six months before the race, she hired a trainer and worked on her upper-body strength at the gym by weightlifting and rowing.

It wasn't Cax's first time with a handcycle - she joined wheelchair basketball in college and then transitioned over to handcycles later on - but closer to race day, she said, it was about getting more practice with the handcycle going uphill and downhill and seeing what the terrain would be like on Nov. 3. She explained, "Going uphill, that's where the battle is. You have to put some grease on the shoulders."

The NYC Marathon had been in the back of Cax's mind for a while before she actually decided to set her sights on the race. Her goal was to finish in two to two-and-a-half hours, though she ended up clocking in at 3:31:37. "I'm obviously proud that I was able to finish it, but if I were to do it again, my goal would be to do it in a shorter amount of time," she said.

What fueled her during the tough parts of the race was all of the energy from the cheering spectators. "Sometimes they were the only indicators that you were halfway through," Cax said. "They would tell you, 'This is the last bridge you're crossing,' or 'You're almost at the finish line,' and that kind of gets you going." Areas where the crowds were particularly encouraging included Brooklyn and Harlem (the drumming in Harlem really got her in the mood to push through, she noted). Some of the other handcyclists shared encouragement as well (she was one of 69 people who finished the handcycle division). "Several of them were saying encouraging words like 'Keep going,' and 'You can do it.'" One even assisted her when, before the halfway mark, her chain broke.

The last thing that kept up Cax's determination was the fact that her family and friends were waiting for her at the finish line. "Exhausted. Body hurts. Resting for the next 24hrs," she wrote on Instagram that day. As for advice she'd give people handcycling the NYC Marathon in the future, "two major things are knowing your equipment and also, even more so, knowing your body." Cax said you might need to make some adjustments to your handcycle to be more comfortable, whether that's putting a pillow on the seat or buying equipment to lengthen the handle - she noted that she wouldn't have been able to complete the race if she hadn't made prior adjustments.

The biggest advice that Cax was given leading up to the marathon was to control her pace and not go too fast in the beginning. "It's about saving energy for the last 13 miles," she explained. "The first 13 miles you'll have energy, and if you're in beast mode, towards the end, you're completely burned out. So, I had that in mind the whole time: 'Take your time, take your time.'" A lot of cyclists also advised her to have fun despite feeling competitive and aiming for a set goal.

"I'm not sure if I'm going to be in another marathon, but it's not out of the question," Cax said. "I'm definitely going to keep up my workout regimen." She enjoys rock climbing, swimming, and yoga. Yoga especially soothes her chronic pain, she added. Fitness in general has played a huge part in helping Cax deal with depression, she said. "It's knowing that it might be something that you have to deal with for a long time," she noted, "but what's important is how you cope with it."


          

INK’S CORNER: Zombie di Philippe Charlier e Richard Guérineau

 Cache   

Al sentire la parola “Zombie”, la nostra mente si connette immediatamente a capolavori del cinema, delle serie tv e dei videogames. Ma qual è la loro origine? A questa e altre domande risponde questo fumetto, attraverso un viaggio che inizia ad Haiti, nel 1915. 

Dagli studi di Charlier (medico legale e antropologo) del culto zombie, verrà fuori che esistono tre tipi diversi di morti viventi, che possono vivere in mezzo a noi per lungo tempo e che, se fossero veri, avrebbero un aspetto molto diverso da quello che immaginiamo. 

Grazie all’introduzione di Chiara Poli – giornalista specializzata in cinema e serie tv – si scoprirà che pur essendo apparentemente crudeli, in tutte le produzioni artistiche gli zombie simboleggiano una società disfunzionale, in cui l’egoismo dell’essere umano distrugge i suoi simili e l’intero pianeta. Dopo aver letto questo fumetto, quindi, ci resterà solo una domanda a cui rispondere: gli zombie siamo noi? 

L'articolo INK’S CORNER: Zombie di Philippe Charlier e Richard Guérineau proviene da La Stamberga d'Inchiostro.


          

UN policewoman recognized for ‘speaking up and speaking out’ on behalf of the vulnerable

 Cache   
INTERNATIONAL, 5 November 2019, Peace and Security - At the core of peacekeeping lies the notion of shared responsibility, the UN peacekeeping chief said on Tuesday, presenting this year’s award for Female Police Officer of the Year, to a woman who “has made a career of speaking up and speaking out on behalf of all vulnerable populations”.

Police Major Seynabou Diouf has worked “tirelessly with her colleagues inside and outside the Mission to empower women, improve conduct, enhance protection, strengthen performance, and thereby build sustainable peace”, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Peace Operations chief, told the heads of UN police and police experts from 14 peacekeeping operations, gathered at the award ceremony at UN Headquarters in New York.

Major Diouf is one of over 1,400 female police officers serving under the UN flag, carrying out a complex range of tasks – from capacity-building and reform, to community-oriented policing, investigations, protection of civilians, and prevention of sexual and gender-based violence.

“That is impressive enough”, asserted Mr. Lacroix, “but they also provide the added value of gender perspectives and mainstreaming at all levels and at all phases of engagement with host-State institutions and communities”.

He cited examples in South Sudan where female officers are helping women and youth attain better living conditions within and outside camps for the internally displaced; the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) where they are helping to build capacity and accountability in internal security forces; and Mali by promoting confidence-building between citizens and the reconstituted internal defence and security forces.

“Our female officers are also operating in areas affected by the Ebola virus disease, ensuring the required level of security for relief and humanitarian operations”, he maintained.

And female officers are a key element in the sensitization and delivery of training on sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) throughout all UN Missions.

“As part of female police officers’ networks, such as the one Major Diouf leads in MONUSCO [UN Stabilization Mission in the DRC], they help prevent, counter and investigate SEA-related offences, advancing the Organization’s zero-tolerance policy”, elaborated the peacekeeping chief. He congratulated Major Diouf “for her outstanding service” to the UN Nations and Congolese people and stated that “all UN police officers in the field and at the UN Headquarters are inspired” by her example to uphold the core values of the Organization.

Previous Awardees
  • 2018: Chief Supt. Phyllis Osei, Ghana, UNSOM
  • 2017: Assistant Inspector Annah Chota, Zimbabwe, UNISFA
  • 2016: Supt. Yvette Boni Zombre, Burkina Faso, MINUSCA
  • 2015: Chief Supt. Raluca Domuta, Romania, MINUSTAH
  • 2014: Inspector Shakti Devi, India, UNAMA

  • 2012: Constable Rezi Danismend, Turkey, UNMIL
  • 2011: Deputy Supt. Shahzadi Gulfam, Pakistan, UNMIT

Mr. Lacroix also thanked her family for supporting her and making sacrifices during her long deployments. “The more women we have in peacekeeping, the more effective we all will be”, he concluded.

Going the extra mile

Top UN Police Adviser, Luis Carrilho, spoke about Major Diouf’s experience, noting that in her native Senegal she became the first female police officer to be honoured as a Gardien de la Paix, which was previously reserved for male officers.

“Since early in her career, she has shown her determination to make the extra effort, go the extra mile, to achieve her goals”, he spelled out, flagging that as the team leader of an SEA task force in Goma and president of the UNPOL Women’s Network, “she has demonstrated her commitment to giving women a voice and putting an end to SEA”.

“Her efforts have helped the mission to achieve zero SEA cases in 2018, compared to 140 cases between 2016 and 2017”, he attested, calling her “an incredible force for good in our ongoing efforts to root out SEA and ensure UN personnel at all levels perform to the highest standards”.

Motivated to do more

When Major Diouf learned that she had been selected to receive the award, she said she was proud, but also “humble to be recognized for something that has become almost second nature” to her and her life’s work.

“When I was young, I wanted to be a medical doctor but there was an urgent need to help support my family”, she told those assembled. “Being a police officer in the early years of female recruitment provided recognition and a decent salary, but it also allowed me to contribute to society in ways I had never thought possible”.

With this new accolade, Major Diouf says she now feels “motivated to do more” and will continue “to promote women's rights, speak out against sexual and gender-based violence, and fight marginalization and discriminatory customary and religious practices targeted at women and girls”.

Háromszoros Grammy-díjas énekes, Cécile McLorin Salvant a Müpában

 Cache   
Három évvel és két lemezzel később, immár háromszoros Grammy-díjasként tér vissza Budapestre Cécile McLorin Salvant. A 30 éves amerikai dzsesszdíva ezúttal Sullivan Fortner New Orleans-i zongoristával duettben lép fel november 18-án a Bartók Béla Nemzeti Hangversenyteremben.

Cécile McLorin Salvant 2010-ben megnyerte a Thelonious Monk Jazzversenyt, albumai azóta mind a közönség, mind a szakma körében egyöntetűen kedvező fogadtatásra találtak - közölte a Müpa az MTI-vel. Az énekesnőt gyermekkora óta körülvette a zene, a művészet és a pezsdítő kulturális közeg: édesapja haiti származású, édesanyja Tunéziában született, de francia, guadeloupe-i és amerikai gyökerekkel rendelkezett. Négyéves korában már zongoraleckéket vett, nyolcévesen pedig klasszikus zenét és éneklést tanult, majd tizennyolc évesen felvételt nyert a dél-franciaországi Darius Milhaud Konzervatóriumba, ahol a szaxofonos Jean-François Bonnel hatására került intimebb kapcsolatba a dzsessz műfajával. Hangjától és előadásmódjától el voltak ragadtatva a kritikusok, a The New York Times egyenesen Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan és Ella Fitzgerald utódjának kiáltotta ki. 2013-ban jelent meg első saját albuma, a WomanChild, amely rögtön Grammy-jelölést hozott. A két év múlva, 2015-ben kiadott For One to Love című koronggal be is gyűjtötte a díjat, ezt követte a 2017-es Dreams and Daggers és a tavaly megjelent The Window, amelyekért szintén hazavihette a legjobb vokális dzsesszalbumnak járó arany gramofont.

Los reclusos en Haití corren el riesgo de morir de hambre debido a la crisis

 Cache   

Puerto Príncipe, 6 nov (EFE).- La crisis que en todos los órdenes sacude a Haití desde septiembre pasado ha colocado en riesgo de muerte por inanición a los más de 11.000 reclusos que hay en el país caribeño, según un informe difundido este miércoles por la no gubernamental Red Nacional de Defensa de los Derechos Humanos (RNDDH).

'Durante más de cuatro meses, la Dirección de Administración Penitenciaria (DAP) ya había tenido dificultades para renovar las reservas de alimentos en algunas cárceles', revela el estudio sobre la situación de 17 centros de detención y tres comisarías de policía convertidas en cárceles.

Ante la parálisis del transporte público y la inaccesibilidad de algunas vías públicas debido a las barricadas erigidas sobre ellas, los familiares de los detenidos se han visto impedidos temporalmente de llevarle productos de higiene personal a las cárceles, destacó RNDDH.

'Los botiquines de higiene y los de limpieza no se renuevan. Como resultado, las prisiones son insalubres y nauseabundas. Las existencias de medicamentos tampoco se renuevan', dice la red.

El documento señala, que desde el 16 de septiembre pasado, en tres prisiones de Puerto Príncipe, Croix-des-Bouquets y Cabaret, las reservas de alimentos se han renovado solo por dos o tres días.

La situación es peor en las cárceles de Hinche, Grande Rivière du Nord, Cap-Haïtien, Jacmel, Anse-à-Veau, Cayes, Jérémie, Port-de-Paix y Saint-Marc, donde no han recibido ningún tipo de alimentos por parte de la Dirección de Administración Penitenciaria en los últimos días.

'El gas propano se agota, el carbón y la leña se utilizan para cocinar los alimentos. Muchas cárceles no cuentan con suministro regular de agua', precisó el informe, al afirmar que la actual crisis sociopolítica en el país tiene un impacto significativo en la vida carcelaria.

'Las condiciones de detención, que ya son preocupantes, son cada día más alarmantes', informa la RNDDH, que considera deplorable que las autoridades estatales no estén haciendo esfuerzos suficientes para proporcionar a las prisiones alimentos, medicamentos y productos de limpieza y mantenimiento.

Son principalmente los centros de detención ubicados en las ciudades de las provincias los que sufren esta situación.

La ONG recomendó al Estado hacer todo lo posible para garantizar que las reservas de alimentos se distribuyan rápidamente en las cárceles, que se proporcionen condimentos y que las cárceles reciban medicamentos, gas propano, botiquines de higiene y productos de limpieza.

La población carcelaria haitiana se estima en 11.529 personas, de las cuales 8.578 (74,41 %) están a la espera de juicio y 2.951 (25,59 %) han sido condenadas.

En Puerto Príncipe, como en algunas capitales de provincia, todas las actividades se han paralizado durante no menos de siete semanas de movilización popular.

Las manifestaciones comenzaron por la escasez de combustible en un país asolado por la corrupción, las desigualdades sociales, la inflación y la devaluación de la moneda nacional, pero han continuado aunque el carburante ha vuelto a las gasolineras. EFE

Declaración final del Encuentro antimperialista de solidaridad por la democracia y contra el neoliberalismo

 Cache   
Por Seguimos en Lucha

Desde esta Cuba solidaria, primer territorio libre de América, reconociendo la heroica resistencia de su pueblo y las conquistas alcanzadas en sesenta años de Revolución, hemos compartido nuestras luchas y esperanzas 1332 representantes de 789 organizaciones del movimiento social y popular, de la solidaridad; de redes, plataformas y articulaciones regionales y globales, de partidos políticos, parlamentarios, religiosos e intelectuales, de 86 países.

Llegamos desde todos los rincones del mundo, con una larga historia de ejercicio de la solidaridad frente a la agresividad imperialista contra la Revolución Cubana, comprometidos con todas las causas justas y como parte de los esfuerzos de unidad en la acción y de las articulaciones de lucha, para reunirnos en La Habana en el Encuentro Antimperialista de Solidaridad, por la Democracia y contra el Neoliberalismo, del 1 al 3 de noviembre de 2019.

Vivimos un nuevo momento en la historia. Los pueblos en las urnas, en las calles y en las redes sociales demuestran con su voto y sus protestas, el agotamiento de la ofensiva imperial conservadora y restauradora neoliberal de la derecha oligárquica, en alianza con el fundamentalismo religioso, el poder mediático, el capital y las empresas trasnacionales que, de la mano del imperialismo norteamericano, en su naturaleza depredadora, excluye a amplios sectores de la población, destruye el trabajo digno, la vida en armonía con la naturaleza y pone en peligro a la especie humana.

Los pueblos están demostrando que es posible derrotar la ofensiva imperial, que en sus propósitos acude a la criminalización de la protesta social, el confinamiento y desplazamiento de poblaciones, el asesinato de líderes sociales y políticos, el feminicidio, la persecución a líderes de gobiernos progresistas y a la judicialización de la política.

Se abren tiempos de esperanza. La unidad es vital y constituye un deber; la movilización, un grito de orden; la organización popular, una tarea inminente; y la integración, una estrategia que nos llevará a la victoria.

En este momento crucial, nos comprometemos a:

1. Hacer nuestra la Declaración de Solidaridad con Cuba aprobada en este Encuentro, movilizándonos en acciones permanentes, intensivas y sistemáticas de alto impacto mediático, contra la escalada agresiva del imperialismo yanqui, como parte de la Campaña internacional “Manos fuera de Cuba”.

2. Exigir el levantamiento del recrudecido, criminal y genocida bloqueo económico, comercial y financiero impuesto a Cuba por el gobierno de Estados Unidos, y respaldar la Resolución que se presentará ante la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas, los días 6 y 7 de noviembre de 2019, seguros de otra contundente victoria de la comunidad internacional.

3. Denunciar las amenazas y agresiones de diversa naturaleza sobre todos los gobiernos soberanos que se niegan a servir a la potencia hegemónica, que busca instalar bases militares en sus territorios y usurpar sus recursos estratégicos.

4. Reafirmar y defender la vigencia de la Proclama de América Latina y el Caribe como Zona de Paz.

5. Denunciar los graves riesgos que entraña para América Latina, el Caribe y el mundo, la decisión de activar el Tratado Interamericano de Asistencia Recíproca (TIAR), orientado a respaldar militarmente el afán del gobierno de los Estados Unidos de revivir la Doctrina Monroe.

6. Expresar nuestra firme solidaridad con la Revolución Bolivariana y Chavista, la unión cívico-militar del pueblo, y su legítimo Presidente Nicolás Maduro Moros que ha sabido defender con firmeza su soberanía frente a las agresiones de todo tipo del gobierno de los Estados Unidos y sus aliados entreguistas que adoptan medidas contra los verdaderos representantes diplomáticos del gobierno venezolano. Apoyar el diálogo con sectores de la oposición para mantener la paz en Venezuela.

7. Intensificar la movilización en reclamo de la inmediata liberación del compañero Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva, víctima de la judicialización de la política, que tiene como fin la persecución y encarcelamiento de líderes políticos de izquierda y progresistas latinoamericanos.

8. Felicitar al pueblo del Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia por su victoria en el proceso electoral y al Presidente Evo Morales Ayma por su reelección, como resultado de las medidas en beneficio popular y el crecimiento económico. Igualmente, denunciar los intentos de golpe de estado y de desestabilización desatada por sectores de la oposición, instigados por los Estados Unidos, contra la paz y la seguridad ciudadana en Bolivia

9. Condenar los intentos de la administración estadounidense de desestabilizar al gobierno de Nicaragua y reiterar el derecho de su pueblo a la Paz.

10. Demandar la independencia de Puerto Rico, nación latinoamericana y caribeña sometida hace más de un siglo al dominio colonial de los Estados Unidos, donde su pueblo se revela victorioso en las calles frente a las políticas del gobierno anexionista.

11. Expresar nuestra firme solidaridad con las naciones del Caribe, en su legítimo reclamo de reparación por las secuelas de la esclavitud; así como el trato justo y diferenciado en el enfrentamiento al cambio climático, en correspondencia con sus circunstancias especiales y su situación de mayor vulnerabilidad.

12. Apoyar la demanda histórica del pueblo argentino por la recuperación de las islas Malvinas, territorio que legítimamente le pertenece.

13. Denunciar a los gobiernos que, siguiendo los dictados del imperialismo yanqui y las recetas del Fondo Monetario Internacional, imponen a sangre y fuego a sus pueblos políticas neoliberales de choque, profundizando la injusticia social y afectando especialmente a los sectores más vulnerables de la sociedad. Condenar enérgicamente el uso de la fuerza y la represión para intentar aplastar los justos reclamos de los movimientos sociales y populares.

14. Defender la decisión del pueblo de Chile a rebelarse en las calles con valentía para abrir las grandes alamedas contra las políticas represivas y antipopulares del gobierno, y condenar el empleo de torturas, violaciones, mutilaciones y muerte de ciudadanos chilenos a manos de los órganos represivos del país.

15. Condenar la represión en Ecuador y el costo en vidas humanas para ese hermano pueblo que se enfrenta al paquetazo neoliberal

16. Rechazar al gobierno pro imperialista de Jair Bolsonaro, plegado a los intereses de los Estados Unidos y empeñado en revertir los avances alcanzados en ese hermano país, destruir los procesos de integración y toda expresión progresista y de izquierda en la región.

17. Respaldar el derecho del pueblo colombiano a la paz y defender la implementación plena del Acuerdo Final para lograrla. Exigir al gobierno el respeto a la vida de los ex combatientes y líderes políticos y sociales. Llamamos a retomar la Mesa de Diálogo con el Ejército de Liberación Nacional.

18. Expresar la más profunda solidaridad hacia el hermano pueblo haitiano en su lucha por la justicia social, las reparaciones históricas y una vida digna.

19. Manifestar nuestro respaldo a la lucha del pueblo hondureño y sus legítimas reivindicaciones.

20. Felicitar al pueblo argentino y a su presidente electo Alberto Fernández, por el merecido triunfo en las urnas, que propicia una derrota al neoliberalismo y recupera la esperanza y dignidad de esa nación.

21. Saludar al gobierno de Andrés Manuel López Obrador y su contribución a la unidad de América Latina y el Caribe, en defensa de los principios de no intervención y respeto a la soberanía

22. Expresar nuestro apoyo y solidaridad al Frente Amplio Uruguayo que defiende la continuidad de los avances alcanzados en los últimos tres lustros en favor de su pueblo.

23. Denunciar la intromisión del imperialismo en los asuntos internos de los países de África y Medio Oriente, la agresión y las guerras desatadas, bajo la llamada cruzada contra el terrorismo, por el control de los recursos naturales de esas regiones. Rechazar las medidas económicas coercitivas contra Zimbabue

24. Apoyar la causa histórica de lucha de los pueblos saharaui y palestino, por su derecho a la libre determinación.

25. Exigir el fin de la intervención imperialista contra Siria y el pleno respeto a su soberanía e integridad territorial.

26. Saludar el proceso de acercamiento y diálogo intercoreano. Condenar las sanciones unilaterales contra la República Popular Democrática de Corea.

27. Rechazar todas las formas de discriminación y violencia por razones de género, color de la piel, creencia religiosa, orientación sexual u otra manifestación que atente contra la dignidad e integridad de las personas y llamar a la solidaridad con sus agendas de lucha; así como reconocer el aporte de los movimientos de mujeres y feministas en los procesos emancipatorios.

28. Defender los derechos de los pueblos originarios a su cultura, a sus territorios, tradiciones y costumbres ancestrales. Expresar nuestro apoyo a las comunidades de origen africano y a las minorías en la lucha por sus reivindicaciones.

29. Reconocer el protagonismo y compromiso de lucha de los jóvenes como fieles continuadores del legado emancipador e internacionalista de nuestros próceres.

30. Condenar enérgicamente la actual política antiinmigrantes de los gobiernos de los Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea, así como toda manifestación de fascismo, xenofobia, y racismo.

31. Denunciar la actual cruzada macartista del gobierno de los Estados Unidos y la campaña anticomunista que tiene lugar en Europa.

32. Convocar a la lucha global para defender los recursos naturales, la biodiversidad, la soberanía y la seguridad alimentaria, la madre tierra, las conquistas y derechos sociales.

33. Fortalecer la respuesta a la guerra cultural y simbólica que tiene como espacio en disputa a la subjetividad del ser humano, articulando la batalla mediática en Internet y las redes sociales digitales, alimentando las redes de la verdad frente a la ofensiva de la mentira del imperialismo neoliberal.

Por tanto:

Reiteramos la importancia de avanzar en la construcción de la unidad antimperialista de las fuerzas políticas de izquierda y de los movimientos sociales y populares, con respeto a la pluralidad, la diversidad y el derecho soberano de los pueblos para escoger libremente su forma de organización política, económica y social, convencidos de que la unidad es la única vía para alcanzar la victoria en el enfrentamiento al principal enemigo de los pueblos: el imperialismo yanqui y sus aliados.

Agradecemos al pueblo, al Gobierno de la Isla de la Libertad y de la Unidad y al Capítulo Cubano de los Movimientos Sociales por su hospitalidad e invariable solidaridad. Continuaremos junto a ustedes, comprometidos con su proyecto social y con el compromiso de divulgar la verdad sobre esta invencible Revolución.

Este Encuentro reafirma la voluntad de lucha de nuestros pueblos y constituye un formidable estímulo para continuar adelante, conscientes de que seguiremos en resistencia hasta vencer.

Ante el plan desintegrador del imperialismo y la derecha conservadora, oligárquica y neoliberal, opongamos el plan integrador, soberano y digno de nuestros pueblos. Unámonos para exigir nuestro derecho al desarrollo, a la vida y al porvenir. La unidad antimperialista es la táctica y la estrategia de la victoria.

¡Señores imperialistas, Manos Fuera de Cuba!

¡Los pueblos seguimos en lucha!

¡Hasta la victoria siempre!

Sanders presenta un plan migratorio para acoger a "todos" los imigrantes en EE.UU.

 Cache   

Bajo el lema "Unos Estados Unidos acogedores y seguros para todos", el senador demócrata y aspirante a la Presidencia Bernie Sanders presentó hoy su plan migratorio para transformar ese sistema en el país y revertir todas las iniciativas en ese frente del presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump.

Entre sus ideas, Sanders crearía un camino "rápido y justo" hacia la ciudadanía estadounidense, despenalizaría la inmigración, desmilitarizaría la frontera con México y protegería y fortalecería los derechos laborales de los inmigrantes en EE.UU.

"Mi padre vino a Estados Unidos como refugiado sin una moneda de cinco centavos en el bolsillo, para escapar del antisemitismo generalizado y encontrar una vida mejor. Como orgulloso hijo de un inmigrante, sé que la historia de mi padre es la historia de muchos estadounidenses hoy en día", argumentó Sanders en un comunicado.

Las principales claves de su plan migratorio, al que Efe tuvo acceso antes de su publicación, son las siguientes:

REVOCAR TODAS LAS INICIATIVAS DE TRUMP

Sanders usaría la autoridad ejecutiva del cargo de presidente para revertir las acciones "dañinas" de Trump sobre inmgiración, incluyendo garantizar que los solicitantes de asilo puedan presentar sus peticiones en Estados Unidos, poner fin a la detención y separación familiar, reunir a las familias, eliminar el veto a viajeros de países musulmanes y detener la construcción del muro fronterizo.

"Como presidente, Sanders usará su autoridad ejecutiva en el primer día de su Administración para revocar todas las acciones del presidente Trump para demonizar y dañar a los inmigrantes", aseguraron a Efe fuentes de su campaña presidencial, que prefirieron permanecer en el anonimato.

ACCESO A LA CIUDADANÍA A LOS "SOÑADORES"

Desde la Casa Blanca, Sanders restauraría y expandiría el plan de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), promulgado por el expresidente Barack Obama (2009-2017) para ofrecer amparo a miles de jóvenes indocumentados que llegaron a Estados Unidos de niños, conocidos como "soñadores".

"DACA se ampliaría para incluir a todos aquellos que fueron traídos a Estados Unidos antes de cumplir 18 años, eliminando fechas de corte y de solicitud arbitrarias", detallaron esas fuentes.

PONER FIN A LAS REDADAS MIGRATORIAS

Uno de los primeros puntos del programa migratorio de Sanders apunta a una moratoria sobre las deportaciones en curso y finalizar las redadas del Servicio de Inmigración y Aduanas (ICE, en sus siglas en inglés).

Además, pretende reestructurar el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS, en sus siglas en inglés) y comenzar a tratar la inmigración "fuera del contexto de la seguridad nacional".

SOLUCIONAR LA SITUACIÓN DE BENEFICIARIOS DEL TPS

El objetivo final del ahora senador por Virginia con los beneficiaros del Estatus de Protección Temporal (TPS, en sus siglas en inglés) es proponer un camino legal hacia la ciudadanía estadounidense.

Las designaciones de TPS se ampliarían, se otorgaría un amplio alivio administrativo y Bernie Sanders presionaría por un camino hacia la ciudadanía que incluya a los titulares de TPS.

Cerca de 325.000 inmigrantes de trece países distintos están amparados bajo el TPS en EE.UU., con 195.000 salvadoreños, unos 60.000 hondureños y 46.000 haitianos, entre otros.

AMPARO A LOS REFUGIADOS VENEZOLANOS

Como parte de su estrategia, facilitaría el acceso al amparo del TPS a aquellos venezolanos que tuvieran que huir de su país por culpa de la crisis humanitaria que existe actualmente.

De hecho, Sanders y una veintena de senadores demócratas enviaron una carta a Trump en junio para pedirle que otorgase el TPS a los venezolanos para "aliviar su sufrimiento y demostrar el compromiso de EE.UU. de apoyar una transición democrática segura en Venezuela para que las personas puedan regresar a casa pronto".


          

World: Education Above All Foundation, World Bank Partner to Ensure Education for Two Million Out of School Children Around the World

WASHINGTON DC, September 20, 2019 - This week, Education Above All Foundation (EAA) and the World Bank announced a ground-breaking partnership to enrol two million out of school children from more than 40 countries by 2025. During a meeting with World Bank President David Malpass, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Founder and Chairperson of Education Above All Foundation, stressed the importance of this framework agreement.

The agreement commits up to $250 million in funding for developing countries striving to enable access to quality primary education for all of their still out-of-school children. Unlike traditional philanthropic efforts of organizations like EAA who usually fund local non-profits directly, this innovative funding model aims to take lessons learned in the field to scale, through direct support to participating countries with implementation, evaluation, and reporting - enabling accountability and systemic change at the national level.

Out of school children (OOSC) are among the hardest to reach in each country due to the many and often compounding barriers to education including extreme poverty, distance to school, and conflict. This new agreement calls on governments to utilise funds to prioritise out of school children by ensuring their access to quality primary education through results-based financing. The agreement highlights the importance of multi-stakeholder partnerships in supporting developing nations, in providing education for all, and meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG 4 (ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promoting lifelong learning).

"The World Bank is committed to addressing the global learning crisis. The partnership with Education Above All is critically important in this effort. There are still too many out of school children around the globe. Together we will bring these children into school and help them learn and fulfil their potential. Learning for all is a foundation for building strong human capital for every country," said Jaime Saavedra, Global Director for Education at the World Bank.

"Our partnership with Qatar and Education Above All will play an especially important role in the Middle East and North Africa," said Ferid Belhaj, World Bank Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa. "As access to quality education is critical for the region to unlock the huge potential of its large youth population, whose energy and creativity could become a new source of dynamic and inclusive growth."

Through this new funding structure, EAA and The World Bank will support financing opportunities for resource mobilization, education advocacy, and poverty reduction in developing countries across three continents. Proposed targeted countries include Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Paraguay, Philippines, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, and Zambia.

About Education Above All (EAA) Foundation

The Education Above All (EAA) Foundation is a global education foundation established in 2012 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. The Foundation envisions bringing hope and real opportunity to the lives of impoverished and marginalized children, youth and women, especially in the developing world and in difficult circumstances such as conflict situations and natural disasters. It believes that education is the single most effective means of reducing poverty, generating economic growth and creating peaceful and just societies, as well as a fundamental right for all children and an essential condition to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For more information, visit educationaboveall.orghttp://educationaboveall.org/.

About World Bank Group Work on Education

The World Bank Group is the largest financier of education in the developing world. We work on education programs in more than 80 countries and are committed to helping countries reach Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, which calls for access to quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030. In 2018, we provided about $4.5 billion for education programs, technical assistance, and other projects designed to improve learning and provide everyone with the opportunity to get the education they need to succeed. Our current portfolio of education projects totals $17 billion, highlighting the importance of education for the achievement of our twin goals, ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity.

Global trends and challenges

More than 1 per cent of people across the planet right now are caught up in major humanitarian crises. The international humanitarian system is more effective than ever at meeting their needs – but global trends including poverty, population growth and climate change are leaving more people than ever vulnerable to the devastating impacts of conflicts and disasters.

Humanitarian needs are increasing despite global economic and development gains. In the past decade, the world has made profound development progress. Between 2008 and 2015, the number of people living in extreme poverty fell from 1.2 billion to 736 million. The world is also richer than ever before: global GDP rose from $63.4 trillion in 2008 to $80.7 trillion in 2017.
But in recent years, more than 120 million people each year have needed urgent humanitarian assistance and protection. There are more crises, affecting more people, and lasting longer today than a decade ago. Most humanitarian crises are not the product of any single factor or event, but of the interaction between natural hazards, armed conflict and human vulnerability.

People’s vulnerability to crises is not just about where they live, but also about how they live.
Poverty, inequality, population growth, urbanization and climate change can erode people’s resilience and make them more susceptible to shocks. Although development gains are being made, progress has been uneven. The rate of extreme poverty remains high in low-income countries and in countries affected by conflict. Crises have disproportionate consequences for the poor: people exposed to natural hazards in the poorest nations are at least seven times more likely to die from them than those in the richest nations.

Fragile and conflict-affected areas are growing faster and urbanizing more rapidly than the rest of the world

In the past five years, the world’s population has grown by 400 million people, from 7.2 billion in 2014 to 7.6 billion in 2017. Although global population growth has slowed compared with previous decades, the rate has been uneven. Today, an estimated 2 billion people live in fragile and conflict affected areas of the word, where they are extremely vulnerable to the impact of conflicts and disasters. This number is projected to increase, as the population in these areas is growing twice as fast as the rest of the world, with an annual growth rate of 2.4 per cent, compared with 1.2 per cent globally. And the urban population in fragile areas grows by 3.4 per cent each year, compared with the world average of 2 per cent. These trends can compound resource scarcity and increase vulnerability to disasters. Urban population density can also amplify the impact of disasters and conflicts. In 2017, when explosive weapons were used in populated areas, 92 per cent of casualties were civilians, compared with 20 per cent in other areas. The populations of countries affected by fragility, conflict and violence are also younger than the global average. Whereas the proportion of the world’s population under 14 years of age has been steadily declining to about 25 per cent today, the average for countries in fragile situations is 40 per cent. As a result, one in every four children in the world is living in a country affected by conflict or disaster, facing threats of violence, hunger and disease. In 2017, more than 75 million children experienced disruptions to their education because of humanitarian crises, threatening not only their present well-being, but their future prospects as well.

More people are being displaced by conflicts

By the end of 2017, war, violence and persecution had uprooted 68.5 million men, women and children around the world – the highest number on record, and nearly 10 million more people than in 2014. Just over 40 million people were internally displaced by violence within their own countries, and 25.4 million refugees and 3.1 million asylum seekers were forced to flee their countries to escape conflict and persecution. The levels of new displacements far outstrip returns or other solutions. In 2017, 5 million people returned to their areas or countries of origin, but 16.2 million people were newly displaced – an average of one person displaced every two seconds, and the highest level of new displacement on record.

The rise in forced displacement is not the result of an increase in conflicts. In fact, after peaking in 2014, the number of political conflicts worldwide decreased by about 10 per cent, from 424 in 2014 to 385 in 2017, although there are still more conflicts compared with a decade ago (328 in 2007). However, during the same period, the proportion of violent and highly violent conflicts, which are more likely to cause human suffering, destruction and displacement, increased from 53 per cent to 58 per cent of all conflicts worldwide.5 The total economic impact of conflict and violence has also increased, from $14.3 trillion in 2014 to $14.8 trillion in 2017.6 The major share of both the human and economic cost of conflicts is borne by developing countries, which host 85 per cent of refugees.

OTHER FUNDING $6.01B

Global Appeal Status

  • At the end of October 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require US$25.20 billion to assist 97.9 million people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The plans are funded at $11.97 billion; this amounts to 47.5 per cent of financial requirements for 2018. Requirements are lower than in September 2018 due to revision of the Ethiopia Humanitarian and Disaster Resilience Plan (HDRP). For the remainder of 2018, humanitarian organizations require another $13.23 billion to meet the needs outlined in these plans.

  • Global requirements are $1.10 billion higher than at this time last year. Overall coverage and the dollar amount were only marginally higher in late October than at the same time in 2017.

  • On 8 October the Government of Ethiopia and humanitarian partners issued a Mid-Year Review of the HDRP. The revised plan reflects changes in the humanitarian context, and requires $1.49 billion for 2018, as opposed to the March 2018 requirement of $1.6 billion to reach some 7.88 million people in need of food or cash relief assistance and 8.49 million people with non-food assistance in the course of the year. Despite the general good performance of this year’s belg (spring) rains, the number of people targeted for relief food and cash support remains largely unchanged due to the significant spike in internal displacement since April 2018.

Security Council Briefings and High Level Missions

  • At a briefing to the Security Council on 23 October, Under-Secretary-General/Emergency Relief Coordinator (USG/ERC) Mark Lowcock called on all stakeholders to do everything possible to avert catastrophe in Yemen. In a follow up note on the humanitarian situation in Yemen of 30 October, the USG/ERC thanked the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United States, Kuwait, the United Kingdom and all donors for the record amount raised for the humanitarian appeal in 2018 which had meant nearly 8 million people had received assistance across the country; more than 7 million people had received food and more than 420,000 children been treated for malnutrition; clean water, sanitation and basic hygiene support is now available to 7.4 million people and about 8 million men, women, girls and boys had benefited from health services.

  • At a Security Council briefing on the humanitarian situation in Syria on 29 October, the USG/ERC urged the Security Council and key Member States to ensure that the ceasefire holds in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib to prevent a military onslaught and overwhelming humanitarian suffering. He thanked donors for the $1.7 billion contributed so far towards the HRP for Syria, but pointed out that this HRP is currently funded at less than 50 per cent.

  • In her statement to the Security Council on 30 October, Assistant Under-Secretary-General/Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator (ASG/DERC)
    Ursulla Mueller spoke of the steady decline in humanitarian funding for the Ukraine over the years and mentioned that the HRP for 2018 is funded at only 32 per cent. This is simply not enough to cover food, health care, water, sanitation and other life-saving assistance. ASG/DERC Mueller appealed to donors to increase their support for consolidating gains in anticipation of the fast-approaching winter.

  • During a joint mission to Chad and Nigeria (5-7 October) with UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner, as part of a series of country visits the two will make to advance humanitarian-development collaboration, the USG/ERC called on donors to fulfil pledges and announcements of over $2 million made in Berlin last month at the High Level Conference on the Lake Chad Region (3-4 September). He noted the importance of maintaining humanitarian response in the region as needs were still very high.

  • Following her visit to the Republic of the Philippines from 9 to 11 October, ASG/DERC Mueller announced that OCHA would continue advocating for sustained funding to address humanitarian needs of people displaced by the Marawi conflict while ensuring that support for the transition to longerterm and sustainable recovery is forthcoming.

Upcoming Event

  • The Global Humanitarian Overview 2019 and World Humanitarian Data and Trends will be launched in the course of joint event to take place in the Palais des Nations, Geneva, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on 4 December 2018.

Pooled Funds

  • Between January and the end of October 2018, country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) have received a total of $708 million in contributions from 32 donors (including contributions through the UN Foundation). During the same period, a total of $616 million from the 18 operational funds was allocated towards 1,071 projects with 575 implementing partners. Nearly 40 per cent ($246 million) of the funds were allocated to international NGOs and some 26 per cent (approximately $160 million) to national NGOs. UN agencies received 32 per cent ($202 million) of the allocated funds and Red Cross/Red Crescent organizations received over 1 per cent (some $8 million) of all allocated funds. The largest allocations per sector went to health; food security; water, sanitation and hygiene; nutrition; emergency shelter and NFIs.

  • Between 1 January and 31 October 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $477 million in grants from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to support life-saving activities in 45 countries. This includes $297.7 million from the Rapid Response Window and $179.7 million from the Underfunded Emergencies (UFE) Window. A total of $31.6 million in Rapid Response grants was approved in October in response to cholera outbreaks in Zimbabwe, Niger and Nigeria; flooding in Laos; and the population influx from Venezuela to Brazil, Ecuador and Peru; as well as to support Government relief efforts following the earthquake and tsunami in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. The UFE 2018 second round was completed this month, with $30.6 million approved in September and the remaining $49.4 million of the round’s $80 million released in October to assist people caught up in nine chronic emergencies in Angola, Bangladesh, Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Libya,
    Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Sudan.

Country Updates

  • Funding for humanitarian activities in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) is at an all-time low. Nearly all agencies requesting financial support through the HRP have received less funding in 2018 than in previous years. This leaves humanitarian partners ill-placed to meet emerging needs or respond to the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Gaza, where the rise in casualties during the recent demonstrations has stretched Gaza’s overburdened health system.
    Humanitarian agencies appealed in August for $43.8 million to respond to the Gaza crisis, particularly trauma management and emergency health care, in 2018. On 22 September, the Humanitarian Coordinator for the oPt launched an $8.3 million allocation from the oPt Humanitarian Fund to implement critical HRP projects, mainly in Gaza. Stocks of medical supplies are in extremely short supply and depleted to almost half of requirements. Since late October, the Gaza power plant has been providing up to eleven hours of electricity a day. However, around 250 health,
    WASH and essential solid waste facilities continue to rely on UN-procured emergency fuel for running back-up generators. This year’s intensive operations have depleted funds and stocks and the $1 million allocated by the oPt Humanitarian Fund for fuel supplies will only last until the end of November. Further and urgent financial support is therefore required.

  • Conditions in Yemen continued to deteriorate in October, pushing the country to the brink of famine. On 23 October, the USG/ERC warned the Security Council that without urgent action, up to 14 million people – half the population – could face pre-famine conditions in the coming months.
    Assessments are currently under way, with initial results expected in mid-November. The economic crisis is raising the risk of famine. The Yemeni rial has depreciated by nearly 50 per cent over the last year. Commodity prices have soared, as Yemen imports 90 per cent of staple food and nearly all fuel and medicine.

Urgent steps are required to avert immediate catastrophe. First, a cessation of hostilities is needed; this is especially critical in populated areas.
Second, imports of food, fuel and other essentials must be able to enter Yemen without impediment. Roads must remain open so these goods can reach communities across the country. Third, the Yemeni economy must be supported, including by injecting foreign exchange, expediting credit for imports and paying salaries and pensions. Fourth, international funding must increase now to allow humanitarians to meet growing needs for assistance. Finally, all parties must engage with the UN Special Envoy to end the conflict. Yemen remains the largest humanitarian operation in the world, with more than 200 partners working through the Yemen HRP.

Spotlight on the recent disaster in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia

On Friday 28 September, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake and tsunami struck Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. On 5 October, the Government and country team/regional office issued the Central Sulawesi Earthquake Response Plan to support the six priority areas identified by the Government. Some existing programmes in Sulawesi will be augmented and others entailing WASH, health, camp management and logistics activities will be developed.

The response plan will focus on immediate response over a three-month period. On 2 October and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, and Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock (USG/ERC) announced an allocation of US$15 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to bolster relief assistance for people affected by this emergency

Global appeal status

At the end of September 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require $25.32 billion to assist 97.4 million people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The plans are funded at $10.63 billion; this amounts to 42 per cent of financial requirements for 2018. For the remainder of 2018, humanitarian organizations require another $14.69 billion to meet the needs outlined in these plans.

Global requirements are $1.13 billion higher than at this time last year. Overall coverage and the dollar amount were only marginally higher in late September 2018 than at the same time in 2017.

High-level events The USG/ERC made a strong appeal for HRP funding for South Sudan and Yemen at two high-level events at UN headquarters last month. At an event on 25 September on the crisis in South Sudan during the General Assembly, the USG/ERC asked that donors sustain their generous and large response to the crisis to enable life-saving activities and to encourage a multi-year approach to crisis response with stronger focus on stabilization, resilience and recovery from the conflict. In his statement to the Security Council on Yemen on 21 September, he announced that we may now be approaching a tipping point beyond which it will be impossible to prevent massive loss of life as a result of widespread famine across the country.

Three days later, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen reiterated the call for more funding and more humanitarian partners on the ground to respond to the unprecedented emergency in Yemen.
The UNHCR Commissioner and USG/ERC ended a mission to Afghanistan last month with a call for donors to urgently increase and sustain support for humanitarian response in the country, and to take measures to find durable solutions for millions of people caught up in Afghanistan’s displacement crisis.
On 3-4 September, in a follow-up event to the 2017 Oslo Humanitarian Conference on Nigeria and the Lake Chad Region, Germany, Nigeria, Norway and the UN co-hosted the High-Level Conference on the Lake Chad Region in Berlin. On this occasion, UN Member States, international organizations and civil society actors discussed humanitarian assistance, stabilization and development cooperation in the region. Humanitarian and development announcements made at the conference totalled $2.17 billion and it is estimated that $1.02 billion was for humanitarian assistance in 2018 for Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria. Of that amount, approximately $875 million (86%), has been made available to recipient organizations.

International financial institutions pledged an additional $467 million in concessional loans.

Concerning pledging conferences this year, according to data reported to FTS by donors and recipient organizations as of 18 September, 95 per cent of pledges have been fulfilled for Yemen, 91 per cent of pledges have been fulfilled for Somalia, and 82 per cent of pledges have been fulfilled for DRC. In each of these countries, many donors have contributed above and beyond their original announcements.
For Syria and the Region, the EU recently published a tracking report on announcements made in Brussels in April which can be accessed here:

www.consilium.europa.eu/media/36437/syria-report-six.pdf Donors are urged to quickly fulfil outstanding pledges made at the conferences and to consider providing additional funding before the end of the year.

Pooled funds

Between 1 January and 30 September 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $395 million in grants from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), including $265 million from the Rapid Response Window and $130 million from the Underfunded Emergencies Window, for life-saving activities in 38 countries. A total of $40 million was released in September to assist people affected by underfunded emergencies in Angola, Bangladesh, Burundi, Central African Republic and Rwanda; as well as people affected by flooding in India and Myanmar, and Venezuelan refugees and migrants arriving in Ecuador and Peru.

Country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) have received a total of US$667 million from 31 donors between January and September 2018. During this period, the 18 operational funds have allocated $478 million to 921 projects, implemented by 525 partners. Over 60 per cent of all CBPF allocations were disbursed to NGOs, including 21 per cent ($100.6 million) directly to national NGOs. Another 36 per cent was allocated to UN agencies and a smaller portion to Red Cross/Red Crescent organizations, which have received 1.2 per cent of funding ($5.8 million) for direct project implementation. The first allocation for 2018 of the Yemen Humanitarian Fund (YHF) for $90 million is ongoing and focuses on covering gaps in first-line responses in cluster strategies and providing life-saving support to people in newly accessible and hard-to-reach areas. In Ethiopia, the Humanitarian Coordinator launched a $30 million reserve allocation targeting immediate and life-saving activities in the nutrition, health, WASH, agriculture/livestock, emergency shelter/NFI, education and protection sectors. Finally, reserve allocations were also ongoing in Afghanistan and Myanmar during September.

In Myanmar, an integrated CBPF and CERF allocation strategy ($1 million CBPF reserve and $2.95 million CERF) prioritized projects aligned with the Myanmar Humanitarian Fund (MHF) operating principles and the CERF Life Saving Criteria, aiming at achieving the main objective of addressing critical unmet needs of flood‐affected people across the country, particularly the most vulnerable people.

Country updates

The humanitarian situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated considerably over the past year, primarily due to the drought, but also as a result of worsening violence. Overall, the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance and protection services in Afghanistan has increased dramatically since the beginning of 2018, from 3.3 million people to 5.5 million people. Over half of the needs are generated by conflict and population movement. In the meantime, chronic vulnerabilities such as poverty, food insecurity, and unemployment are also increasing. Afghanistan is experiencing its most severe drought since 2011, with some 20 provinces affected by significantly reduced rainfall from winter snow. Some 2.2 million chronically food insecure people are on the verge of acute food insecurity, with four provinces – Badakhshan, Badghis, Faryab and Herat – likely to pitch into a state of emergency unless they receive comprehensive and sustained humanitarian assistance. Drought-related displacement is growing in volume and geographical scope – now constituting 40 percent (119,000) of the overall number of people displaced in Afghanistan in 2018. It is likely that the Afghan population – some 15 million of whom are dependent on the agriculture sector across these 20 provinces for livelihoods – will take years to recover. Overall, more than 12 million Afghans have been displaced internally or abroad during the last four decades of conflict, natural hazards, disasters and the resulting socio-economic upheaval.

Since 25 August 2017, extreme violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar, has driven over 727,000 Rohingya refugees across the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Statelessness imposed over generations has rendered this population seriously vulnerable, even before the severe traumas of this most recent crisis. The vast majority of these refugees now live in congested sites that are ill-equipped to handle the monsoon rains and cyclone seasons – with alarmingly limited options for evacuation. Low levels of funding are seriously hampering the capacity of humanitarian to respond effectively to the scale and scope of the humanitarian needs in the refugee camps, particularly to ensure safe shelter, appropriate educational options, nutritional support, and most critically, the quality of health services available for an extremely vulnerable population. For example, with the health sector only 23 per cent funded, programming for non-communicable diseases, malaria, TB, and HIV/AIDS remains insufficient, and partners are struggling to scale up service provision which is critical for emergencies including obstetric emergencies.

The alarming financial shortfall for humanitarian programmes in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has had detrimental consequences on the lives of the most vulnerable. More than 40 per cent (10.3 million) of the population remains undernourished. One in five children under-five is stunted with likely irreversible physical and cognitive repercussions. More than 9 million people lack access to essential health services. Pregnant women, young children and people living with diseases, in particular, struggle to access the care they need. Those living in rural areas are most at risk. Recent floods in North and South Hwanghae provinces have affected 280,000 people, killed 76 and displaced over 10,500 people, and chronic underfunding is making it difficult for UN agencies and their partners to respond to needs caused by the natural disasters that frequently hit the country. The 2018 Needs and Priorities plan seeks $111 million to assist 6 million out of 10.3 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.

The prospect of protracted displacement in Iraq is real, warranting a whole-of-system approach to respond to needs and work toward durable solutions. Some 1.9 million Iraqis remain displaced, with insecurity, lack of livelihood opportunities, destroyed housing, and explosive remnants of war contamination among the key barriers to returning. Considerable protection concerns exist, especially for women and children with perceived ties to ISIL. Critical funding gaps are hampering the response, particularly in food security, health, shelter and non-food item sectors, and the WASH sector. Urgent funding priorities include water supply interventions in the south, especially in Basra, which is experiencing water shortages and a gastrointestinal disease outbreak. Child health and nutrition services for up to 180,000 pregnant and lactating mothers, 300,000 children under the age of five and 5,000 newborn babies lack adequate funding.

The level of humanitarian need in Myanmar remains high and is driven by multiple factors including armed conflict, protracted displacement, inter-communal violence, statelessness, segregation, discrimination, food insecurity and vulnerability to natural disasters. More than 720,000 people – mostly stateless Rohingya Muslims – were forced to flee the country in August last year and there remains little tangible progress on addressing the root causes of violence and discrimination against this population. More than 128,000 Muslims confined in camps, some since violence erupted in 2012, have little to no access to essential services. In Kachin and Shan, persistent cycles of displacement due to conflict continue to raise serious protection concerns, with annual flooding exacerbating existing vulnerabilities. In both areas of the country, access remains a critical challenge.

Recent violence in Tripoli has highlighted the fragile situation in Libya. Thousands of people have been displaced, including families staying in schools converted into makeshift IDP shelters. The violence led to a breakdown in basic services, with frequent electricity cuts and compromised access to water. The situation is compounded by liquidity challenges which deepen needs among the most vulnerable. Humanitarian partners are responding to pre-existing and new needs, but the response is undermined by underfunding. With only 24 per cent of financial requirements covered, the ability of partners to provide assistance in life-saving sectors such as water, sanitation and hygiene and protection, as well as education, is limited. Additional funds are required to support a nation-wide measles vaccination campaign, targeting 3 million children against the backdrop of an ongoing outbreak.

South Sudan continues to experience extensive humanitarian needs, including dire levels of food insecurity and malnutrition. In September, 6.1 million people (59% of the population) faced crisis, emergency, or catastrophe levels (IPC Phase 3-5) of food insecurity. This includes 47,000 people in catastrophic conditions (IPC Phase 5). Urgent funding is needed in the coming months to procure and preposition food and other life-saving supplies during the approaching dry season, when these activities are most cost-effective. Food insecurity is expected to decline slightly following the October-December harvest, and rise again in January-March, when 5.2 million people are expected to be in IPC Phases 3-5, including 36,000 in IPC Phase 5. Resources are also needed to scale up preparedness and capacity to respond to Ebola Virus Disease. Though no cases have been reported in South Sudan, there is a risk of cross-border spread.

An agreement on 17 September to establish a demilitarized zone in Idlib, Syria, provided a reprieve for close to three million people placed at risk by a major military escalation in the area, of whom more than two million were already in need of humanitarian assistance. Civilian deaths and injuries due to airstrikes and shelling, as well as displacement and attacks impacting health facilities, were reported in the Idlib area in the weeks prior to the announcement of the agreement. Response and readiness efforts continued in Idlib and other parts of the north-west, drawing to a large extent on cross-border assistance channels from Turkey. Despite significant access challenges, humanitarian assistance continued to be provided across the country, including in areas that had recently come under Government control such as eastern Ghouta, northern rural Homs and much of the south-west. Cross-border assistance to the south-west under the framework of Security Council resolution 2393 remained suspended, but assistance was delivered from Damascus, primarily through the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC). Deployment of an inter-agency convoy from Damascus to Rukban on the Syria-Jordan border became increasingly urgent, with reports of a deterioration of the humanitarian situation in a camp estimated to be hosting up to 45,000 people. The situation in eastern Deir-Ez-Zor, in the east of the country, also deteriorated, with clashes linked to counter-ISIL operations displacing thousands in rural areas with limited humanitarian access and reports of restrictions on the onward movement of displaced people.

Steep economic decline accelerated in Yemen in September, with the Yemeni riyal losing about 30 per cent of its value against the US dollar during the month. Because Yemen imports the vast majority of its food and other basic commodities, this has translated into sharp rises in prices of food, fuel and other essentials – placing these goods increasingly out of reach for millions of Yemenis at a time when famine remains a real threat. In parallel, conflict in Hudaydah has intensified, with about 550,000 people displaced by the violence since 1 June. Aid operations have dramatically expanded, reaching 8 million people with direct assistance across the country every month. Partners have provided rapid response kits to nearly all families recently displaced from Hudaydah, as well as additional assistance based on assessed needs. Generous funding has been key: the 2018 HRP has received US$1.96 billion, or 67 per cent of requirements. Despite these achievements, recent developments threaten to overwhelm the operation’s capacity to respond. Urgent steps are needed to stabilize the economy, keep all ports and main roads open, uphold international humanitarian law, and move towards a political solution. Partners are also seeking full funding for the $3 billion HRP in order to deliver all activities in the plan.

KEY MESSAGES

↗ International prices of wheat and maize rose in March for the third consecutive month and averaged more than 10 percent above their levels in December 2017. Prices were mainly supported by concerns over the impact of prolonged dryness in key-growing areas of the United States of America and Argentina, coupled with strong demand. International rice prices remained relatively stable.

↗ In South America, severe dry weather and strong demand underpinned the domestic prices of grains in key exporting country, Argentina, while the price of yellow maize spiked also in Brazil in March.

↗ In East Africa, in the Sudan, the strong upward surge in prices of coarse grains faltered in March but they remained at record or near-record highs, reflecting the removal of the wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the local currency.

↗ In Southern Africa, in Madagascar, prices of locally-produced and imported rice declined in February from the record highs reached in January with the harvesting of the minor season paddy crop and following an appreciation of the Malagasy Ariary.

KEY MESSAGES

↗ International prices of wheat and maize increased further in February, mainly supported by weather-related concerns and currency movements. Export price quotations of rice also continued to strengthen, although the increases were capped by subsiding global demand for Indica supplies.

↗ In East Africa, in the Sudan, prices of the main staples: sorghum, millet and wheat, continued to increase in February and reached record highs, underpinned by the removal of the wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.

↗ In Southern Africa, in Madagascar, prices of rice hit record highs at the start of the year, as a result of tight supplies following a sharp drop in the 2017 output to a substantially below-average level and a weaker currency.

↗ In West Africa, prices of coarse grains continued to generally increase in February and reached levels above those a year earlier despite the good harvests gathered in late 2017, due to a strong demand for stock replenishment, coupled with localized production shortfalls and insecurity in some areas.

Key messages

  • International prices of wheat and maize were generally firmer in January, supported by weather-related concerns and a weaker US dollar. Export price quotations of rice also strengthened mainly buoyed by renewed Asian demand.

  • In East Africa, in the Sudan, prices of the main staples: sorghum, millet and wheat, rose sharply for the third consecutive month in January and reached record highs, underpinned by the removal of wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.

  • In West Africa, prices of coarse grains were at relatively high levels in January, despite the good harvests gathered in late 2017, due to strong demand for stock replenishment and insecurity in some areas.

Key messages

Education is lifesaving. Education is crucial for both the protection and healthy development of girls and boys affected by crises. It can rebuild their lives; restore their sense of normality and safety, and provide them with important life skills. It helps children to be self-sufficient, to be heard, and to have more influence on issues that affect them. It is also one of the best tools to invest in their long-term future, and in the peace, stability and economic growth of their countries.

Education in emergencies actions can help prevent, reduce, mitigate and respond to emergency-related academic, financial, social, institutional, physical and infrastructural barriers to children's education, while ensuring the provision of safe, inclusive and quality education.

In 2017, the EU dedicates 6% of its annual humanitarian aid budget to education in emergencies, one of the most underfunded sectors of humanitarian aid. In 2018, this amount will increase to 8%.

4.7 million girls and boys in 52 countries have benefited from EUfunded education in emergencies actions between 2012 and 2017.

Key messages

  • International prices of wheat increased in September mostly because of weather-related concerns, while maize quotations fell further on crop harvest pressure. International rice prices remained generally firm, supported by seasonally tight availabilities of fragrant rice and strong demand for higher quality Indica supplies.

  • In East Africa, prices of cereals remained at levels above those of a year earlier in most countries, particularly in Ethiopia reflecting seasonal tightness amid concerns over the impact of the Fall Armyworm infestation on the main harvest and in South Sudan mainly due to the ongoing conflict.

  • In Asia, prices of rice in Bangladesh increased again in September and reached record highs, with seasonal patterns exacerbated by the reduced 2017 main season output and concerns over the impact of the July-August floods on the second season crop, to be harvested from November.

Apresan a “King Kong” en Los Haitises, buscado por narcotráfico y sicariato

 Cache   

La Policía, destacada en Sabana de la Mar, informó del apresamiento de un sicario y vendedor de drogas, acusado de participar en varios asesinatos en puntos de drogas.

César Luis Cornelio alias King Kong, de 33 años, fue apresado en la comunidad conocida como Loma del Cuatro en la zona de amortiguamiento del parque Nacional Los Haitises, donde se refugió huyendo a la persecución policial.

Al momento de su apresamiento se le ocupó una escopeta calibre 13, cuatro cartuchos para la misma, así como nueve porciones de un material rocoso, presumiblemente Crack y dos porciones de cocaína, según informó la Policía.

Sobre el apresado existían dos órdenes de arresto por la muerte de dos vendedores de drogas en puntos del agrícola municipio de El Valle.

King Kong ha tenido enfrentamientos con la autoridad de Hato Mayor desde el año 2013, cuando fue herido por agentes de la Dirección Nacional de Control de Drogas. En aquella ocasión se le ocupó, supuestamente, una pistola robada.

Yasmin Latief Bawa Bendera Indonesia di New York City Marathon

 Cache   
Lomba lari maraton terbesar di dunia, TCS New York City Marathon, kembali digelar di kota New York, Minggu (3/11). Marathon yang diikuti oleh lebih dari 50.000 pelari dari seluruh dunia ini menempuh jarak sekitar 26,2 mil atau 42,195 km. Para pelari akan melewati lima wilayah yang termasuk dalam kota New York, yaitu Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx dan Manhattan. Seperti pada tahun-tahun sebelumnya, dua hari sebelum marathon dimulai para pelari ikut pembukaan Parade of Nation atau Parade Internasional di garis finis taman kota Central Park. Parade ini bertujuan mengenalkan negara-negara peserta Marathon kepada publik kota New York sekaligus membangun keakraban antara para peserta demi persahabatan antar bangsa. Puluhan pelari dari India, tampil meriah dengan baju khas Sari dan Doti lengkap dengan iringan musik tabla dan penari-penari profesional. Dari Mexico, para pelari tampil dengan baju Fiesta warna-warni dan memakai topi khas, Sombrero. Kontingen dari Kazakhstan berhasil memukau publik karena mereka memakai dengan baju tradisional yang sangat unik. Sementara itu, kontingen Indonesia hanya diwakili oleh satu orang pelari, yaitu Yasmin Latief pelari asal Jakarta yang pernah mengikuti marathon di Chicago dan Berlin. Yasmin, dipilih oleh komite New York Marathon untuk membawa bendera merah putih sambil memimpin kontingen di depan. “Ini pengalaman paling berkesan dari semua maraton yang pernah saya ikuti. Bangga dipanggil nama Indonesia dan bangga membawa bendera Indonesia,” kata Yasmin, seorang profesional di bidang perbankan yang tampak kesulitan membawa bendera dan tulisan papan Indonesia, di kedua tangannya. Tidak ada satupun dari sekitar 80 pelari Indonesia yang terdaftar ikut maraton ini hadir dalam parade. Hingga akhirnya seorang relawan dari panitia membantu Yasmin memegang papan tulisan Indonesia. Hal ini berbeda dengan tahun-tahun sebelumnya di mana para pelari Indonesia selalu ikut parade internasional, baik memakai baju tradisional maupun memakai pakaian olahraga. “Saya merasa menjadi atlet beneran. Tidak menyangka juga bisa terpilih menjadi pembawa bendera,” kata Yasmin setelah parade selesai. “Pelari Indonesia di NYC marathon banyak yang ikut serta tapi terpencar. Ada beberapa di klub lari dan individual. Harapan saya, agar pelari Indonesia ikut parade, karena negara-negara lain seperti Jepang, Spanyol dan Brazil tampil dengan total dengan menampilkan atraksi dari negaranya masing-masing,” tambah Yasmin yang tampak senang berbaur dan berkenalan dengan pelari dari Argentina, Haiti, Brazil dan Israel. “Pelari Israel ini adalah ibu yang sudah berumur, tapi sudah lengkap 6 major world marathon. Kagum sama staminanya,” kata Yasmin. Acara parade yang diliput puluhan wartawan lokal dan internasional ini, juga dapat ditonton melalui live streaming dan stasiun televisi ABC7/New York. Acara ditutup dengan pesta kembang api sebagai simbol dimulainya maraton. (nr/op)

  • Florida-based artist Harold Caudio creates elaborate portraits of influential people of color using Skittles.
  • Caudio has featured Beyoncé, Tupac Shakur, Will Smith, Bob Marley, and others in his series, titled "The Colored Collection."
  • He first drew inspiration for the project after the death of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old Florida teen who was shot and killed in 2012 after buying Skittles at a convenience store.
  • Caudio told Insider that he uses the multicolored candies because "Skittles represents us coming together as a culture."
  • Caudio created a Skittles portrait of the late rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle shortly after his passing.
  • Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

Florida-based artist Harold Caudio has channeled his creative vision using an incredibly unconventional approach.

In his art series, titled "The Colored Collection," Caudio creates portraits of influential people of color entirely out of Skittles candies. His works have featured Beyoncé, Tupac Shakur, Will Smith, Bob Marley, and others.

Caudio produced a Skittles portait of Nipsey Hussle, a Grammy-nominated rapper and activist who was shot and killed outside of an apparel store he owned in Los Angeles on March 31, 2019.

Check out some of Caudio's Skittles portraits below.

Artist Harold Caudio began his series of Skittles portraits after the death of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in 2012 after buying Skittles from a convenience store.

Harold Caudio

The death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in 2012 while walking home after buying Skittles from a convenience store, marked the beginning of a nationwide increase in consciousness surrounding the shooting deaths of unarmed men of color.

It also inspired many, including Florida-based artist and designer Harold Caudio, to take action. A Haitian-American man, Caudio decided to channel his artistic vision into creating a portrait of Martin. But, instead of using conventional methods like drawing or painting, Caudio opted to make a portrait of the late teen entirely out of Skittles candies, which became a symbol of the high schooler's innocence and the injustice of his untimely death.

"My initial inspiration was the Trayvon Martin incident that happened," Caudio told Insider. "The fact that I went into a store and my son wanted Skittles around the same time is what sparked it. [...] I figured Skittles represents us coming together as a culture."

Caudio told Insider that he planned to meet Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, to gift her with his piece.



Caudio's vision has since expanded into an art series titled "The Colored Collection."

Harold Claudio

He told Insider that he hopes this project will draw attention to people of color's "huge impact on society and culture." It's no wonder, then, that he chose to devote a Skittles portrait to Bob Marley.

The Jamaican singer and songwriter helped bring reggae music to prominence with hits like "Get Up, Stand Up" and "I Shot the Sheriff." Caudio titled his Bob Marley Skittles portrait "Sweet Redemption."



And he honored Will Smith with a portrait titled "Everybody loves Will."

Harold Caudio

Caudio told Insider that it takes him approximately three weeks to create each portrait.

"It's about the amount of Skittles," Caudio said. "When I'm running out I have to make a run to get bags of Skittles and then sort them by hand."
