Comment on Next for Honduras: “charter city” neocolonialism? by Bill Weinberg

<h3>'Privatized cities' in China</h3> It seems that the notion of "privatized cities" has advanced further in "communist" (sic!) China than just about anywhere in the world. A chilling <a href="" rel="nofollow">BBC</a> report on Nov. 26 provides an in-depth look at the "ocean-themed" planned community of 400,000 (actually in land-locked Sichuan province), which is <em>owned outright</em> by one man—dubbed Chairman Huang. BBC calls it "a paradigm-shattering model of Chinese urbanism. In this city, utilities, and land are operated by a private individual..." Further quotes: "Huang says was inspired by Dubai and Disneyland... They took all the peasant lands in the area to build it.... There are no government cadres doing any planning here...." And fools still think the People's Republic of China is "socialist"—both left-wing fools who love it and right-wing fools who hate it. You fools! It is more capitalist than the goddam USA!

LGBT Human Rights


Welcome to the third edition of OutRight’s program newsletter! Through it we want to share with you insight and highlights of some of the work that your support has helped our programs team to carry out in recent months, and the impact that work has on the lives of LGBTIQ people around the world. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but rather a shortlist of highlights.

We hope you find this informative and interesting. As always, we welcome your feedback, your comments and questions!

OutRight’s study into Arabic Media published in 2017 showed that LGBTIQ people and surrounding issues are predominantly reported highly negatively in Arabic media. Although strong conservative influences in society have a strong role to play in this, as does the prevalence of legislation criminalizing same-sex relations across the region, we also learned that a lack of understanding and knowledge among journalists about the lived realities of LGBTIQ people was an important factor in how they reported on the topic.

While the road to legislative and policy change in the region may be a long, and risky one, raising awareness and understanding among journalists seemed like a relatively safe avenue to take with potentially high returns in terms of changing hearts and minds about LGBTIQ people and issues.

We took this learning and, in cooperation with the Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality, embarked on a project aimed at tackling this problem. Through a number of trainings 50 journalists from across the region have been trained so far in sessions aiming to raise awareness and knowledge, debunk myths and stereotypes about LGBTIQ people, and sexual orientation and gender identity more broadly, and report on gender, sexuality, and numerous topics related to issues faced by LGBTIQ people, in an inclusive way which promotes understanding, rather than perpetuates negative stereotypes.

We also launched an informal network between the journalists who took part, in order to facilitate information exchange and support among them and thus, hopefully, grow the impact they can have in their respective media outlets and countries.

The influence of media on the knowledge and opinions of their readers of viewers is immense. As such, through this project we not only improved the knowledge and understanding of 50 journalists, but the subsequent changes in their reporting have the potential to have a far-reaching ripple effect on their audiences, with time, slowly, changing the dominant negative perceptions and prejudices about LGBTIQ people.

Domestic and family violence continues to be a reality for LGBTIQ people around the world, and much of it goes unreported for fear of outing, stigmatization or even imprisonment in countries where same-sex relations are still a crime – such as Myanmar.

With support from Open Society Foundations, and in partnership with Equality Myanmar and the Myanmar LGBT Rights Network (a coalition of 26 LGBT groups), OutRight launched a project to improve domestic violence and family violence protections and services for LGBTIQ people in the country.

Through capacity building of LGBTIQ groups on topics such as data collection, an awareness campaign, and sensitization of members of parliament we have been working to promote zero tolerance for domestic and family violence targeting LGBTIQ people. Moreover, as a draft Prevention of Violence Against Women Law is currently under consideration, the project has aimed to strengthen collaboration between LGBTIQ groups and a coalition of women's organizations to push for a non-binary definition of gender and inclusion of explicit reference to protections from domestic and family violence for LGBTIQ people in the law.

So far, a dialogue with lesbians, bi-women and transmasculine persons was held to increase diversity of people covered by the project. At least six participants signed up to participate in a subsequent training on documentation of domestic and family violence among LGBT communities, showing the interest in and need for such work. The latter took place over four days, with 12 participants, on how to conduct interviews and gather data on domestic and family violence among LGBT families.

The LGBT Rights Network is just about to launch a questionnaire for documenting violence in LGBT communities with an aim to receive responses from over 400 LGBT people, which will inform and shape the project going forward.

Gender-based violence is a reality affecting women, LGBTIQ people who do not fit within the narrow parameters of the assigned societal gender roles, and even men, across the world. In the Caribbean, where more than half the countries still criminalize same-sex relations, the prevalence of gender-based violence against LGBTIQ people is staggering, and due to the criminalization and stigma that LGBTIQ people face, victims of gender-based violence tend not to report it or to seek support.

We wanted to change that, so together with partners in the region OutRight launched the “Frontline Alliance: Caribbean Partnerships Against Gender Based Violence.” The network includes organizations from across the Caribbean and aims to raise awareness about the prevalence of gender based violence against women and LGBTIQ people, to train engage first responders and service providers on how to ensure inclusivity of LGBTIQ people, as well as to engage local government officials with a view to improving policies and protocols designed to tackle gender-based violence.

So far OutRight has already hosted training of trainers sessions in Haiti, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, and Antigua to address gender-based violence against women and LGBTIQ people in the Caribbean. By the end of the project over 200 people will be trained, who will be able to directly implement the learning into their day to day work, thus immediately being able to support LGBTIQ victims.

Furthermore, a number of trainers have also been trained, and several more will receive the training in the coming months, on the topic. They will continue to pass this knowledge on to ever more first responders or service providers, casting the net of impact on the lives of LGBTIQ people ever farther.

Caribbean attendees at the 2019 Frontline Alliance: Caribbean Partnerships Against Gender Based Violence.

A key partner of the majority of our work at the UN is the LGBTI Core Group, a network of cross-regional states which have committed to collaborating within the New York-based UN system to raise awareness and promote progress for equality of LGBTIQ people.

In August the LGBTI Core Group adopted its latest workplan for the year 2019/2020, in it officially including OutRight as the group's secretariat. This status will enable us to work even closer with the group to ensure ever more progress is achieved in the promotion and protection of the human rights of LGBTIQ people through UN mechanisms and processes.

To read more news from our UN program have a look at our latest UN New Yorker.

In August we released a groundbreaking report exposing the global reach of so-called conversion therapy practices seeking to change, suppress, or divert one’s sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. As discussions in some countries in Latin America, Australia, Europe and North America about banning so-called conversion therapy have intensified, awareness of the practices in these regions has grown. However, next to nothing was known about similar practices in other parts of the world.

Our report changes that. It is the first-ever global survey on the topic, with input from 500 survey responses from across the world, 19 in depth interviews with survivors from 11 countries, an extensive literature review, as well as in-depth conversations with experts.

Our report overwhelmingly shows that so-called conversion therapy happens across the world, predominantly promoted and perpetrated by people acting in the name of religion or pseudo-healthcare, often with pressure or even coersion by families. While the practices may vary due to religious, cultural, or traditional norms and contexts, they are harmful and never work; instead, they cause deep, lasting trauma that affects every realm of life.

Such practices are the epitome of what the LGBTIQ movement has been fighting, and symptomatic of just how much of an uphill battle we still have to fight to gain acceptance and equality. We hope that this report will shed much needed light on the global prevalence of these barbaric practices, and incite ever more countries to seek ways of not only banning “conversion therapy”, but finding genuine, sustainable ways to ensure LGBTIQ people have true and sustainable access to their full human rights, and ensuring that the misinformation, prejudice and perceptions of the norm which drive families and individuals to seek conversion therapy are eradicated for good.

Geneva | Good Governance in SDGs

Thursday, November 7, 2019

EVENT - Linking Peace, Justice and Development through Good Governance in the SDGs: The Role of Independent Oversight

The event will focus on the crucial role of independent oversight institutions in delivering peace and security, rule of law and justice, and good governance as envisaged in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16. Highlighting the catalytic nature of SDG 16 for the wider 2030 Agenda, representatives of independent oversight bodies will showcase how their work contributes to SDG 16 and related targets (Agenda 16+).

National human rights institutions, ombudspersons and similar bodies play a crucial role in fostering peaceful and inclusive societies, rule of law and justice, and promoting and protecting human rights, including by receiving, investigating and resolving complaints, mediating conflicts and monitoring activities. Panelists will share experiences and lessons learned that illustrate the centrality of accountable and effective national security and justice sectors that operate within a framework of democracy and the rule of law for the 2030 Agenda – and the role oversight bodies play in pursuing that outcome.

O «impeachment» de um regime


O «impeachment» de um regime

Mais interessado do que em escolher o seu próprio candidato, o aparelho do partido Democrático está preocupado em afastar Trump da corrida – dando assim como adquirido que, com ele, as eleições estariam perdidas.

por José Goulão
AbrilAbril - 28 de novembro, 2019

Donald Trump - Créditos: Olivier Douliery / POOL/EPA / Agência Lusa
O mundo está suspenso do impeachment.
Parece não se passar nada mais relevante à face da Terra do que saber se o fascista Trump, presidente dos Estados Unidos da América, será substituído pelo fascista Pence até ao começo de 2021, altura em que entrará em funções a nova escolha do establishment que gere o regime norte-americano – sem qualquer dúvida alguém do partido único com duas faces. Para tudo continuar na mesma.
Sucedem-se os depoimentos das testemunhas, multiplicam-se os comentários de analistas sobre os depoimentos das testemunhas, a rede mediática global transborda de factos e pareceres próprios comentando os comentários dos analistas sobre os depoimentos das testemunhas. O mundo sofre uma indigestão de informação para, afinal, não ter informação alguma credível sobre a essência do que está em causa.
Porque estará, afinal, Donald Trump a ser alvo de um impeachment?
Por ser fascista? Não parece. Em Washington isso não conta como pecado tendo em conta a quantidade de golpes fascistas que ali foram e continuam a ser preparados para que os interesses dos sustentáculos do regime sejam devidamente alimentados, interna e externamente.
A causa do impeachment será o facto de Donald Trump roubar petróleo à Síria? Ou por apoiar a Arábia Saudita e os Emirados Árabes Unidos na chacina que praticam no Iémen vai para seis anos?
Será porque a administração Trump tem deixado os iranianos e os venezuelanos a morrer à fome? Por ter largado os cães fascistas à solta na Bolívia? Por querer obrigar os europeus a consumir gás natural muito acima do preço? Por viciar a livre concorrência internacional através das suas guerras comerciais?
Será o impeachment porque Trump continua a financiar grupos terroristas na Síria, contemporiza com limpezas étnicas, trata os imigrantes como gado separando crianças das suas famílias, erguendo muros e barreiras para que seres humanos morram à fome ou tenham vidas sem destino?
Será por continuar a permitir – na esteira dos antecessores – que o Afeganistão sob o domínio da NATO funcione como o paraíso do narcotráfico e inunde o mundo de heroína?
Será por negar aos palestinianos e aos saarauís o direito a terem as suas pátrias; por ter assumido que as opções terroristas do regime sionista de Israel valem mais que o direito internacional e as deliberações das Nações Unidas? Por estar de acordo em que os dois milhões de habitantes de Gaza vivam em regime de campo de concentração onde pouco mais lhes resta do que esperar pela morte?
Escrutinando a confusão deliberada em que se transformou o processo de impeachment contra o presidente dos Estados Unidos parece que nenhum destes crimes contra os direitos humanos, contra a condição humana, ou outros do mesmo género estão na origem dos procedimentos.
O telefonema maldito
Parece que, afinal, a causa de tão extrema pretensão é um telefonema. Não um telefonema qualquer, é bom de ver, mas ainda assim um telefonema.
Na sua qualidade de presidente dos Estados Unidos, Donald Trump telefonou ao presidente da Ucrânia, Volodymyr Zelensky, pedindo-lhe informações sobre o comportamento do ex-vice-presidente norte-americano, Joseph (Joe) Biden a propósito de acontecimentos pouco claros na maior empresa ucraniana de gás natural.
Tudo leva a crer, sem necessitar de entrar pelo campo da especulação, que o presidente norte-americano de turno não estará propriamente incomodado com o comportamento ético do vice de Obama. Não é uma inquietação própria de alguém que rouba petróleo a uma nação soberana ou decide mudar arbitrariamente os presidentes de países terceiros.
Pelo que o objectivo que guiou a diligência de Trump foi o de encontrar armas para utilizar na batalha eleitoral já em andamento contra aquele que se perfila como o maior adversário à sua reeleição, Joseph Biden.
Golpe baixo, dir-se-á, como se a refrega pela eleição do presidente dos Estados Unidos se guiasse por princípios éticos e de respeito mútuo. Acresce que o presidente em exercício não fez um simples pedido ao presidente ucraniano. Numa relação de imperador para suserano fez saber que a próxima remessa de auxílio militar ao aparelho fascista que sustenta o regime de Kiev fica congelada até que Zelensky responda convenientemente. Se o congelamento está em vigor ou não é assunto que faz agora parte da guerra de prós e contras que caracteriza o processo de impeachment.
Se Biden será ou não o grande rival de Trump nas eleições presidenciais do próximo ano é assunto que está em aberto e caberá ao Partido Democrático resolver.
Porém, mais interessado do que em escolher o seu próprio candidato, o aparelho do partido está preocupado em afastar Trump da corrida – dando assim como adquirido que, com ele, as eleições estariam perdidas. Essa é a principal motivação do impeachment; os democráticos sofrem de pouca fé certamente porque, melhor do que ninguém, sabem que têm boas razões para isso: o seu passado recente em nada os distingue do presente da administração Trump.
Serve a Ucrânia onde falhou a Rússia
impeachment é, portanto, uma fabricação do Partido Democrático e suas muitas correias de transmissão no establishment. É uma iniciativa que esteve sempre na mente das eminências do partido desde as eleições de 2016 – e que, portanto, não se inspira na revolta contra a forma de governar de Trump.
Ao princípio foi a suposta interferência da Rússia nas anteriores eleições presidenciais, o chamado «Russiagate». Isto é, o Kremlin tinha conspirado com Trump em prejuízo da senhora Clinton, uma impoluta democrata sem nada que se lhe aponte. Arrasar a Líbia e organizar internacionalmente os grupos terroristas para fazerem o mesmo na Síria são actos que, naturalmente, apenas lhe enriquecem o currículo.
O «Russiagate» estendeu-se por mais de dois anos, até que as investigações culminaram no chamado «Relatório Muller», que retirou qualquer fundamento ao assunto.
O telefonema de Trump a Zelensky, desvendado através de convenientes «fugas de informação» organizadas pela constelação de serviços secretos, surgiu então como a oportunidade para os democráticos alcançarem com a Ucrânia o que não conseguiram com a Rússia. Com a vantagem de o regime de Kiev poder proporcionar novas variantes capazes de ressuscitar a suposta «cumplicidade» entre Trump e Putin, que o aparelho democrático teima em não abandonar. Uma promissora situação de dois em um.
A Ucrânia é, na realidade, um terreno que os democráticos norte-americanos conhecem bem: foram eles que o criaram não se importando – tal como a União Europeia, não o esqueçamos – de recorrer ao banditismo fascista.
Joseph Biden foi, como vice-presidente de Obama, um dos principais envolvidos na organização do golpe da Praça Maidan, em 2014, que supostamente restaurou «a democracia» em Kiev através da entronização de personalidades e grupos saudosos dos tempos do colaboracionismo com Hitler. Joseph Biden não perdeu tempo e, uma vez consumada a mudança de regime, entrou no lucrativo negócio do gás natural ucraniano introduzindo um filho como membro da administração da maior empresa do ramo. E quando uma investigação judiciária de Kiev quis saber como tal foi possível, Biden não hesitou: ou o inquérito parava ou congelaria o auxílio militar norte-americano a Kiev. Trump, afinal, não introduziu ideias novas na engrenagem.
impeachment nos carris
Foi então que, munido da carta ucraniana, o Partido Democrático fez entrar finalmente o impeachment nos carris, valendo-lhe também a presença poderosa que tem no aparelho do establishment e numa área mediática bem-falante e supostamente «de referência» – mas sempre bem sintonizada com o essencial da política imperial de Washington.
Por isso a carta ucraniana é glosada de todas as maneiras e feitios, sugada sem descanso para abastecer a realidade paralela em que decorre todo o processo.
E não poderia ser de outra maneira.
Em relação ao fascismo de Trump não podem esquecer-se as equivalências de Biden, Obama, Clinton como autores da legitimação democrática dos nazis ucranianos no poder.
Se o tema for o roubo de petróleo, os democráticos não estarão isentos da mesma acusação pelos seus comportamentos na Líbia, no Iraque, na própria Síria; a carnificina no Iémen foi lançada com uma administração democrática em Washington.
As sanções contra o Irão e contra a Venezuela, acrescidas, neste caso, com as tentativas de mudança de regime, também foram armas usadas por Obama e Clinton.
Que dizer da agonia de Gaza, do desrespeito pelos direitos dos palestinianos e dos saarauis, da cumplicidade com o terrorismo israelita, do lançamento das guerras contra a Líbia e a Síria, dos golpes no Brasil, no Paraguai e nas Honduras, do narcotráfico afegão, da organização e financiamento do terrorismo internacional, incluindo a própria entrada em cena do Isis ou Estado Islâmico – tudo em tempos de administração democrática?
É certo que não foi Obama quem construiu o muro contra os imigrantes; mas as suas guerras provocaram milhões de refugiados; e a sua gestão foi responsável pelo maior número de sempre de execuções extrajudiciais além-fronteiras.
impeachment é uma farsa em ambiente de podridão de uma política que nos é apresentada como exemplo a seguir.
O processo em curso deveria ser o do impeachment do próprio regime; mas é apenas muito barulho, uma enorme encenação para nada: independentemente do resultado deste caso específico tudo continuará na mesma em Washington – com democráticos ou republicanos ou vice-versa.

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), sponsor of HR - 1945 The Berta Caceres Human Rights in Honduras Act, was joined by 13 House Members in denouncing the military coup in Bolivia. Ten years ago, a US backed military coup broke constitutional order in Honduras, ushering in a human right catastrophe that claimed the life of the indigenous and environmental rights leader Berta Caceres. In the letter, Rep. Johnson calls on the US to demand restoration of constitutional order and to withdrawal support for a coup that will lead to the same deadly violence that has devastated Honduras.

Solo el oficialismo asistió a la convención del Partido Nacional


alegría. Ricardo Álvarez junto a los cuatro precandidatos.


Solo el sector oficialista fue el que se hizo presente el fin de semana a la convención del Partido Nacional que terminó aprobando una resolución, según la cual, el partido de Gobierno se abstendrá de incluir en sus planillas a candidatos contaminados por la corrupción.

No llegaron el designado presidencial Ricardo Álvarez, la corriente que lidera el expresidente Porfirio Lobo Sosa y el Movimiento Nacionalista Rafael Callejas (Monarca), que encabeza Roberto Ramón Castillo.

Sí asistieron el presidente Juan Orlando Hernández, Mauricio Oliva, titular del Congreso Nacional, -quien decía que no lo habían invitado-, el alcalde capitalino Nasry Asfura y las autoridades del Comité Central del Partido Nacional (CCPN).

Entre las medidas adoptadas por los 500 convencionales que se reunieron en Danlí, El Paraíso, el sábado, están la certificación de los candidatos a cargos de elección y la creación de un Instituto de Formación Ideológica.

Seguiremos luchando por el bien común de todo por la igualdad y contra aquello que atente en contra de la dignidad humana”, dijo Sánchez.

El presidente Hernández alentó a sus correligionarios al alzar su mano con la señal de la campaña “Cuatro años más”.

Ratificó en su discurso que “entregaré la Presidencia en enero del año 2022”, desvirtuando rumores de reelección.

En el evento se pregonó la unidad granítica, pero el aspirante presidencial Ricardo Álvarez posteó que “la unidad total se da cuando hay respeto, inclusión y buen trato, cuando no hay amenazas, atropellos ni presiones”.


Casa Zulema, un refugio que da alivio a hondureños portadores del VIH


La Prensa

Tegucigalpa, HondurasEl camionero Wilson Mancía, de 63 años, contrajo VIH tras tener relaciones con una mujer que conoció en la carretera.

Tres años después de resultar positivo, se trata con antirretrovirales en un paraíso entre montañas cerca de la capital de Honduras.

Recibe atención en Casa Zulema, un refugio para portadores del virus de inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH), causante del sida.

Desde la década de 1990, Honduras es el país más golpeado por el mal en Centroamérica: con unos 9 millones de habitantes, ostenta el 20% de la población del istmo pero llegó a tener al 60% de los portadores de VIH.

Wilson recibió el "fuerte impacto" del resultado positivo en un hospital público de Tegucigalpa cuando tenía 59 años.

Contagio de VIH en Honduras aumentó 7% en los últimos años, según la ONU"Me protegía (porque) vi a tantos amigos morir", pero "uno a veces se olvida de la protección y una relación basta", lamenta en una entrevista con la AFP en Casa Zulema.

El refugio funciona en un inmueble de una sola planta con 11 habitaciones, sala comedor y cocina, construido sobre la ladera de una montaña de pinares en Valle de Ángeles, al este de Tegucigalpa.

Actualmente atiende a 12 personas de cinco a 75 años de edad.

El sacerdote español Ramón Martínez contrató en 1997 a una enfermera con la que puso a funcionar el lugar.

Antes, Martínez prestaba servicios religiosos en el estatal Hospital Escuela donde conoció a Zulema, esposa de un trabajador bancario que murió a causa del virus.

Zulema pidió al religioso, antes de morir, que construyera un albergue para personas con sida.

El padre gestionó recursos en su natal España para fundar el centro de atención con capacidad para atender a 20 pacientes en forma simultánea.

Actualmente atiende a 12 personas de cinco a 75 años de edad, y todos reciben el tratamiento de antirretrovirales.

Otros 12 pacientes, que superaron la fase crítica del virus, llegan al centro a retirar medicamentos cada mes.

Casa Zulema trabaja a base de donaciones, con empresas privadas que la abastecen de alimentos.

- "Vine a recuperarme" -"Aquí vine a recuperarme.

El que no se recupera en Casa Zulema no se recupera en ningún lado", afirma Mancía mientras muestra una caja de plástico donde lleva los tres medicamentos que toma en la mañana y en la noche.

La enfermedad "a mí no me quita el sueño, tengo fuerzas para trabajar", se consuela.

Laura Elena Sánchez, una enfermera que atiende en Casa Zulema junto a su hijo, asegura que allí "anteriormente morían de cuatro a cinco personas al mes, ahora de cuatro a cinco al año".

"Una persona tomando los antirretrovirales no se muere por el VIH (.



) tiene una vida normal", añade.

"Nuestra misión es reducir el impacto de las personas con VIH en Honduras, reducir el estigma, ayudar a las personas" contagiadas, destaca.

En Honduras se ha logrado mejorar la disponibilidad y calidad de los antirretrovirales pero "siempre hay personas cada semana que se dan cuenta de que están infectados por VIH", lamenta.

La directora de Normalización del Ministerio de Salud hondureño, Elvia Ardón, dijo a la AFP que hay un registro oficial de 37.

696 portadores del virus desde 1985, cuando se registró el primer caso.

E informó que actualmente el ministerio atiende a cerca de 12.

000 pacientes con antirretrovirales.

Según la funcionaria, los más afectados son hombres que tienen relaciones con hombres, trabajadoras sexuales, la población garífuna (afrocaribeños) y los privados de libertad.

La Organización Panamericana de la Salud (OPS) señala que en las Américas ha habido progresos en la respuesta al VIH, pero las infecciones aumentaron un 7% desde 2010.

Estima que 100.

000 personas contrajeron el virus en 2018, en su mayoría jóvenes, uno de cada cinco de ellos con entre 15 y 24 años de edad.

A Hidden Reality for Adolescent Girls: Child, Early and Forced Marriages and Unions in Latin America and the Caribbean

Publication Date
Monday, July 1, 2019

"[T]raditional social structures, gender norms, legal frameworks, political institutions and economic arrangements together create unhelpful or harmful constraints and challenges for vulnerable girls and women in the eight study countries."

Across Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) in 2017, 23% of women aged 20-24 had been married or in union by age 18 and 5% by age 15. This research focuses on LAC adolescent girls in child, early, and forced marriages and unions (CEFMUs) to make their specific needs visible, with the aim of working to change the social norms that perpetuate this violation of their human rights. Plan International and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) conducted the regional study across Bolivia, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Peru.

Here’s Why the Rejection Rate for Asylum Seekers Has Exploded in America’s Largest Immigration Court in NYC


Here’s Why the Rejection Rate for Asylum Seekers Has Exploded in America’s Largest Immigration Court in NYCShutterstockThe rate of asylum petitions denied in New York City’s busy immigration court has shot up about 17 times times faster than in the rest of the country during the Trump administration’s crackdown—and still Ana was there, a round-faced Honduran woman with a black scarf wrapped turban-like over her hair, a look of fright crossing her dark eyes as the judge asked if she faced danger in her home country.Her eyes darted over to her helper, a Manhattan lighting designer with New Sanctuary Coalition volunteers to offer moral support—she couldn’t find a lawyer to take her case for free. Then Ana turned back to the judge, or rather, to the video screen that beamed him in from Virginia, and whispered to the court interpreter in Spanish: “My spouse and my son were killed.” Tears welled in her eyes as she said a notorious transnational gang had carried out the slaying. “Yes we were receiving threats from them,” she added. And that was why, months before her husband and son were slain, she and her 5-year-old daughter had come “through the river,” entering the United States near Piedras Negras, Mexico. After ruling that she was deportable, the judge gave Ana—The Daily Beast is withholding her real name because of the danger she faces in Honduras—three months to submit a claim for asylum, a possible defense against her removal. “You should start working on that,” the judge told her. As she left the courtroom, Ana hugged the volunteer who’d accompanied her, Joan Racho-Jansen.Imprisoned Immigrants Facing Deportation Fend for Themselves In CourtNew York’s immigration court has long been the asylum capital; it has made two out of every five of the nation’s grants since 2001, while handling a quarter of the caseload. With approval of 55 percent of the petitions in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, it still grants a greater percentage of asylum requests than any other courts except San Francisco and Guam.But New York’s golden door is slamming shut for far more asylum seekers than in the past, especially for women like Ana. The asylum denial rate in the New York City immigration court rose from 15 percent in fiscal year 2016, the last full year of the Obama administration, to 44 percent in fiscal year 2019, which ended Sept. 30.  The rest of the country, excluding New York, has been relatively stable, with denials going from 69 percent to 74 percent. That is, the rate of denials in the rest of the country increased by one-ninth, but in New York they almost trebled.  There are other courts where the rate of denials has shot up sharply over the same period: Newark, New Jersey (168 percent); Boston (147 percent); Philadelphia (118 percent). But because of the volume of its caseload, what’s happening in New York is driving the national trend against asylum. For now, in sheer numbers, New York judges still granted more asylum requests over the last year than those in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Arlington, Virginia, the next three largest courts, combined. An analysis of federal data compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University and interviews with former immigration judges, lawyers, immigrant advocates and experts finds multiple reasons for the sharp shift in the nation’s largest immigration court as compared to the rest of the country:—Many more migrants are coming to the New York court from Mexico and the “Northern Triangle” of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, and the judges have been far more likely to deny them asylum than in the past: from two out of five cases in the 2016 fiscal year to four out of five cases in the 2019 fiscal year.  —Many veteran New York judges retired, and most of the replacements have a prosecutorial, military, or immigration enforcement background. In the past, appointments were more mixed between former prosecutors and immigrant defenders. Immigration judges are appointed by the U.S. attorney general and work for the Justice Department, not the federal court system.  —All the judges are under heavier pressure from their Justice Department superiors to process cases more quickly, which gives asylum applicants little time to gather witnesses and supporting documents such as police reports. New judges, who are on two years of probation, are under particular pressure because numerical “benchmarks” for completing cases are a critical factor in employee evaluations. “You have a huge number of new hires in New York,” said Jeffrey Chase, a former New York immigration judge. “The new hires are mostly being chosen because they were former prosecutors. They’re normally of the background that this administration thinks will be statistically more likely to deny cases.”Judge Jeffrey L. Menkin, who presided in Ana’s case via video hookup, began hearing cases in March. He is based in Falls Church, Virginia, the home of the Executive Office of Immigration Review, the Justice Department agency that runs the immigration courts. He’d been a Justice Department lawyer since 1991, including the previous 12 years as senior counsel for national security for the Office of Immigration Litigation.Menkin can see only a portion of his New York courtroom on his video feed and as a result, he didn’t realize a Daily Beast reporter was present to watch him conduct an asylum hearing for a Guatemalan woman—we’ll call her Gloria—and her three young children, who were not present. Immigration and Customs Enforcement took Gloria into custody at the Mexican border in March. Released on bond, she made her way to New York and had an initial immigration court hearing on June 26, one of many cases on a crowded master calendar. She was scheduled for an individual hearing four months later. At the hearing scheduled three months later on the merits of her case, she decided to present an asylum defense to deportation. Her lawyer asked for a continuance—that is, a new hearing date—while his client waited to receive documentation she’d already requested from Guatemala. The papers were on the way, Gloria said.Judges in such cases—those that the Department of Homeland Security designates as “family unit”—have been directed to complete them within a year, which is about 15 months faster than the average case resolved for the year ending Sept. 30. Down the hall, other types of cases were being scheduled for 2023. Menkin called the lawyer’s unexpected request for a continuance “nonsense” and “malarkey” and asked: “Are you and your client taking this case seriously?” The judge then asked if Gloria was requesting a case-closing “voluntary departure,” a return to her homeland that would leave open the option she could apply again to enter the United States.‘Lawlessness’ in Immigration Jails for 250,000 Detainees Finally Allowed to Remain in AmericaBut Gloria had no intention of going back to Guatemala voluntarily.  So Menkin looked to the government’s lawyer: “DHS, do you want to jump into this cesspool?” The government lawyer objected to granting what would have been the first continuance in Gloria’s case.And so Menkin refused to re-schedule, telling Gloria and her lawyer that they had to go ahead right then if they wanted to present an asylum defense. Gloria began testifying about threats and beatings that stretched back a decade, beginning after a failed romance with a man who was influential in local politics. Details are being withheld to protect her identity. She finally fled, she said, when extortionists threatened to hurt her children if she didn’t make monthly payoffs that were beyond her means. When she observed that she and her children were being followed, she decided to leave. After she said she had gone to police three times, Menkin took over the questioning. “Are you familiar with the contents of your own asylum application?” he asked, pointedly.“No,” Gloria responded.Menkin said her asylum application stated she had gone to police once, rather than three times, as she’d just testified. Gloria explained that she had called in the information for the application to an assistant in her lawyer’s office, and didn’t know why it was taken down wrong. When her lawyer tried to explain, Menkin stopped him, raising his voice: “I did not ask you anything.”Later, Menkin came back to the discrepancy he’d picked up on. “I don’t know why,” Gloria responded.“All right, STOP,” Menkin told the woman, who cried through much of the two-hour hearing. Again, he sought to terminate the case, asking the DHS lawyer, “Do I have grounds to dismiss this now?”“I’m trying to be fair,” she replied.“We’re all trying to be fair,” Menkin said.And to be fair, it should be noted that since October 2018, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) has been evaluating judges’ performance based on the numbers for case completions, timeliness of decisions and the percent of rulings upheld on appeal. “In essence, immigration judges are in the untenable position of being both sworn to uphold judicial standards of impartiality and fairness while being subject to what appears to be politically-motivated performance standards,” according to an American Bar Association report that assailed what it said were unprecedented “production quotas”  for judges. The pressure is especially strong on judges who, like Menkin, are new hires. They are probationary employees for two years.Denise Slavin, a former president of the National Association of Immigration Judges who retired from the bench in April after 24 years of service, said the judges’ union had tried to talk EOIR Director James McHenry out of his quotas. “It’s basically like the same problem with putting quotas on police officers for tickets,” she said. “It suggests bias and skews the system to a certain extent.” Told of the details of Gloria’s hearing, she added, “That’s a prime example of the pressure these quotas have on cases… the pressure to get it done right away.”Kathryn Mattingly, spokeswoman for the Executive Office of Immigration Review, said by email that she couldn’t comment on individual cases, but that all cases are handled on their individual merits. “Each asylum case is unique, with its own set of facts, evidentiary factors, and circumstances,” she wrote. “Asylum cases typically include complex legal and factual issues.”  She also said that Menkin could not comment: “Immigration judges do not give interviews.”It’s true that each asylum case has its own complex factors. But a 2016 study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office took many of them into account—the asylum seeker’s nationality, language, legal representation, detention status, number of dependents—and determined that there are big differences in how the same “representative applicant” will be treated from one court and one judge to another.  “We saw that grant rates varies very significantly across courts and also across judges,” said Rebecca Gambler, director of the GAO’s Homeland Security and Justice team.Some experts say that changes in the way the Justice Department has told immigration judges to interpret the law may be having an outsize effect in New York.Starting with Jeff Sessions, the Trump administration’s attorneys general have used their authority over immigration courts to narrow the judges’ discretion to grant asylum or, in their view, to clarify existing law. Asylum can be granted to those facing persecution because of “race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.” In June 2018, Sessions overturned a precedent that many judges in New York had been using to find that victims of domestic assaults or gang violence could be members of a “particular social group,” especially when police were complicit or helpless. Justice’s ruling in the Matter of A-B-, a Salvadoran woman, seems to have had a particular impact in New York.  “Where there’s a question about a ‘particular social group,’ judges in other parts of the country may have taken a narrower view” already, said Lindsay Nash, a professor at Cardozo Law School in New York and co-director of the Kathryn O. Greenberg Immigration Justice Clinic.Mauricio Noroña, a clinical teaching fellow at the same clinic, said new judges would be especially careful to follow the lead in the attorney general’s ruling.Andrew Arthur, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington and a former immigration judge in York, Pennsylvania, said Sessions’ decision in the Matter of A-B- would particularly affect Central American applicants, whose numbers have increased sharply in New York’s court. Data show that just 8.5 percent of the New York asylum cases were from Central America or Mexico in 2016; in the past year, 32.6 percent were. Arthur said a larger portion of the New York court’s asylum rulings in the past were for Chinese immigrants, whose arguments for refuge—persecution because of political dissent, religious belief, or the one-child policy—are fairly straightforward under U.S. asylum law. Although the number of Chinese applicants is still increasing, they have fallen as a portion of the New York caseload from 60 percent in 2016 to 28 percent in the past year. Sessions’ determination against A-B- is being challenged, and lawyers have been exploring other paths to asylum in the meantime. “It’s extremely complicated to prepare cases in this climate of changing law,” said Swapna Reddy, co-executive director of the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project. But, she said, “That’s not to say advocates and judges can’t get back to that [higher] grant rate.”Gloria continued to cry; the DHS lawyer asked that she be given a tissue. The government lawyer’s cross-examination was comparatively gentle, but she questioned why Gloria didn’t move elsewhere within Guatemala and seek police protection. “He would find out before I even arrived at the police station,” she said of the man she feared. And, she added, “They’re always going to investigate and as for always being on the run, that’s no life for my kids.”In closing arguments, Gloria’s lawyer said his client had testified credibly and that she legitimately feared her tormentor’s influence. The DHS lawyer did not question Gloria’s credibility, but she said Gloria’s problem was personal, not political—that she could have moved to parts of Guatemala that were beyond the reach of the man’s political influence.Judge Menkin then declared a 20-minute recess so that he could compose his decision. In the interim, the lawyers discovered that a man sitting in one corner of the small courtroom was a reporter and, when the judge returned to the bench to rule, so informed him. Immigration court hearings are generally open to the public. There are special rules for asylum cases, however. The court’s practice manual says they “are open to the public unless the respondent expressly requests that they be closed.” “Oh, Jesus Christ!” Menkin shouted at the lawyers when he learned a reporter had been present for the hearing. “Don’t you people look around the room? What’s the matter with you?”After the judge expressed his alarm, the reporter was ejected with Gloria’s tearful assent, and so the basis for Judge Menkin’s ruling on Gloria’s asylum petition is not known. The outcome is, though: denied, 30 days to appeal. Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

FMO accused of funding human rights abuses on palm oil plantations


SINT MAARTEN/THE NETHERLANDS – Dutch development bank FMO is one of four European lenders accused of financing human rights abuses in the palm oil sector in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) reported that four state-backed development banks had invested around $100 mln (€91 mln) since 2013 in Feronia. It accuses the company of dumping untreated waste in waterways, exposing workers to dangerous pesticides and paying them less than $1.90 a day, the World Bank’s threshold for ‘extreme poverty’.

Feronia is due to hold a shareholders’ meeting on November 25 in London with the four banks, who also include the Belgian BIO, UK-based CDC Group and Germany’s DEG, to discuss its environmental and social track record.

PHC, Feronia’s subsidiary in DR Congo, is one of the country’s five biggest private employers with more than 10,000 workers on its books and around 100,000 people living on its plantations, which are leased from the government.

HRW said it had interviewed more than 200 people, including more than 100 workers on PHC’s three plantations. Workers complained of skin irritation, pustules, blisters, eye problems or blurred vision.

Two-thirds of men said they had become impotent since starting work. Congolese law requires people employed in high-risk jobs to undergo compulsory medical testing, but the workers on PHC’s plantations said they had never been given their results.

‘Polluted waterway’

HRW also spoke to managers who said that tonnes of untreated waste from PHC’s palm oil mills were dumped into a waterway that flows past workers’ homes, creating a foul stench.

Luciana Tellez, environment and human rights researcher at HRW, called on the development banks to hold Feronia to account over its environmental and labour law violations.

‘These banks can play an important role promoting development, but they are sabotaging their mission by failing to ensure that the company they finance respects the rights of its workers and communities on the plantations,’ she said. ‘The banks should insist that Feronia remedies the abuses and commits to a concrete plan to end them.’

Feronia and FMO told Trouw that wages had been increased this year to €3 per day and that the sewage in the waterways had ‘no environmental effect’. ‘The converse is true: it works well as fertiliser on the plantations,’ said company director Xavier de Carnière.

It is not the first time FMO has come under fire for its investments in developing countries. Last month Trouw reported that at least seven projects financed by the bank, which is 51% owned by the Dutch state, had experienced serious problems.

FMO part-financed dam projects in Honduras and Panama which led to the death of protestors, Trouw said. The director of the company building the Honduras dam has been arrested and charged with involvement in murder.

Bolivia in the crosshairs of US counter-revolution

Bolivia’s president Evo Morales Ayma has just resigned. Hours earlier, surrounded by leaders of the grassroots mass organizations that serve as a sort of “people’s cabinet,” he had called for new elections and a renovated Supreme Electoral Tribunal to oversee the process. These are political decisions since according to the Constitution he won the elections of October 20.

In essence, Morales resigned to halt a campaign of terror. Paramilitary violence is being practiced by the right-wing and it has escalated. For weeks, those who look Indigenous have been attacked, with several deaths. More recently, a spate of attacks against MAS politicians and journalists has sought to drive fear into the majority of poor and rural Bolivians who deeply identify with the changes brought by 13 years of progressive rule under the guidance of Morales.

The governing party, Movement Toward Socialism (MAS), also made a political decision to ask the Organization of American States (OAS) to conduct a recount before the results were known, and the OAS has just made public preliminary results saying that there were serious problems, however, Evo Morales may well have won the elections. Nevertheless, they advised that new elections be held.

Yesterday, Bolivian social movements in La Paz, the center of government, answered the calls of the right-wing for president Morales to resign with their own ultimatum: That the leaders of the right depart the city of La Paz within 48 hours and leave its inhabitants in peace. They announced that in the face of police mutinies, the social movements would form a civil police force to protect the constitution and its elected representatives. In a tradition of struggle that is hundreds of years old, they announced they would encircle La Paz, however, they would do so peacefully.

The president’s logic is clear: “Bolivia is living moments of conflict with the risk of grave confrontations among Bolivians. As president, my principal mission is to protect life, preserve the peace, social justice, economic stability, and the unity of the Bolivian family.”

The situation is dire and as always, the devil’s in the details that the right-wing press does not divulge. An anatomy of recent events reveals critical factors silenced by the mass media. These factors will unfold in the coming weeks and months in correlation with the international response.

How the coup plan has unfolded

On the evening of election day in Bolivia as votes were being counted, the rightwing candidate Carlos Diego Mesa Gisbert realized that Morales was quite possibly winning in the first round. Mesa took that moment as the opening volley in the planned coup to topple MAS. Mesa abrogated the role of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal and declared himself in a run-off election with Morales, the Indigenous president who has led most Bolivians from conditions of nineteenth-century servitude to an era of dignity and national sovereignty.

Mesa’s arrogance is breathtaking. It also mirrors his faith in his funders and handlers, the old elites and the Trump administration. The usual players in the Republican right wish to boycott an Evo Morales administration in Bolivia, and U.S. operatives, in addition to those in the embassy, have been wandering around the countryside to create rightwing foci of resistance.

While the United Nations twice urged all political leaders in Bolivia to avoid violent acts and “follow the legal norms,” the United States is claiming to do the same but in fact promoting a campaign to escalate tensions and delegitimize the elections. It is a pattern that reaches back to the origins of the Movement toward Socialism. Washington gives refuge to the bloodiest of the exiles from the 2003 “Gas War,” among them Carlos Sanchez Berzain, the Defense Minister of ex-president Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada (or Goni for short) who killed 67 during the 2003 peaceful protests. They fled the country protected by the US embassy and are reportedly deeply involved in coup plans at present. Sanchez Berzain is leading anti-Evo protests on the turf of right-wing Senator Marco Rubio, of ultra-right fame, in Miami.

The defeated candidate Mesa was coached by the United States on creating a large urban base that is fed astonishing lies, delivered via Facebook and WhatsApp. Mesa was Goni’s vice president in the early 2000s and became president when Goni fled the wrath of the people he massacred. Moreover, Mesa has said all along that he would not recognize any outcome except his own victory, the same stance as his political ally Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, another president close to Washington.

Almost one million votes out of about 7.3 million in total had not been counted when Mesa told the world that massive fraud had occurred, an allegation he has been unable to prove. The uncounted votes on the night the polls closed were overwhelmingly from the countryside and also the exterior, including immigrant workers. Among them were almost 100,000 Bolivians in Argentina of whom 82% voted for MAS.

Mesa knows he has never been a favorite of campesinos nor of immigrant workers living abroad. He also realized that he would keep losing votes to a far-right evangelical candidate. Hence, Mesa and his sponsors wanted the tabulation of votes brought to a dead halt while he still stood less than 10 percentage points distant from Evo’s lead. A 10% point lead is the cut-off point for winning in the first round if the candidate has gained at least 40% of the vote.

Reflect for a moment on Mesa’s strategy: its absurdity, its illegality, and its novelty in the arsenal of U.S. coup strategies that have ranged in this century from kidnappings (in Haiti and Honduras) to parliamentary coups built on a scaffolding of lies (in Paraguay and Brazil). The resounding victory of MAS in the vote of October 20 includes the presidency, almost 85% of all Bolivian municipalities, and a majority in both the Senate and the chamber of deputies.

Right-wing militants unleashed violence that night, long before the rural Acts representing one-seventh of the electorate had arrived at the Supreme Electoral Tribunal. As in the past, these votes have won the contest in Evo’s favor.

Some 100 youth were paid by Mesa and his associates to wreak havoc, according to government intelligence and confessions of youth transporting explosives who were arrested at the airport, and also the deathbed confession to the family of a young man recruited to create street chaos. He was preparing an explosive projectile that misfired and destroyed his head. His family knew he was earning good money but had not known how. Bolivia’s Indigenous cardinal Toribio Ticona, a man who shined shoes and worked in the mines before he became a priest, charged Mesa with responsibility for the mayhem he has directed.

Local electoral tribunals were trashed and set on fire, forcing a person to leap out of the second-story of a burning building, while others fled the blows of the rightwing coalition. At the same time, representatives of all the parties, including Mesa’s, had people inside the tribunals verifying the vote count. It was an odd way to stop electoral fraud. In several zones of the city of La Paz, right-wing attacks against election officials achieved the theft of their packages of votes being delivered from the countryside, and one of the packages was burned. In the more well-heeled sections of La Paz, thousands of right-wing demonstrators took the streets, humiliating women in Indigenous dress and police who were protecting government buildings.

The not-so-new paramilitaries

Those who attack with violence run the gamut of opposition movements over recent years, among them a group of dissident coca growers tied to narcotrafficking; a sector of miners abandoned to their own devices in the 1980s when mass layoffs imposed by the government shook the country, and these particular miners made common cause with the mining oligarchy; a sector of La Paz teachers that has always resisted MAS from a position at the far left of the political spectrum; and a sector of doctors and medical students that has been on strike who are opposed to the progressive expansion of free health care to cover all citizens. Various right-wing civic committees such as that of the city of Potosi announced far in advance that they would boycott elections. The youth of the city of Santa Cruz organized in “shock brigades” have been trying to kill people they call Indigenous since the start of the MAS era. Often, their violence takes place in the context of secession efforts by lowland elites.

Lowland Santa Cruz is a proudly mestizo and white heartland of agro-industry whose elite attempted to break the Movement toward Socialism with the guidance of the U.S. ambassador in 2008, adopting the symbols of the crusades. The hyper-racist president of the Santa Cruz civic committee has emerged as a power comparable to Mesa. His name is Luis Fernando Camacho and in the tradition of those elites he represents, Camacho positions himself as the voice of white superiority inspired by “my Christ the Redeemer.” He looks like he has just arrived from the golf course, he is alleged to have taken part in the Panama Papers tax-dodge scandal, and his methods are fascist. Supported by the arch-conservative politicians of Santa Cruz, he is coordinating paramilitary attacks.

In 2008, the Union of Santa Cruz Youth (UJC by its initials in Spanish) gained international attention as fascists by reason of their symbols, their language and their actions, as the fighting arm of elites who tried to secede from the Plurinational State of Bolivia led by Morales. “Brother Evo,” as he is known to his peers, belongs to a people known for their courage, the Aymara of the high Andean plain. Like many, his family migrated in the neoliberal crisis of the last century, and from harvesting potatoes and herding llamas, they turned to growing coca in the subtropical stretches bordering the Amazon that gave rise to one of Latin America’s most battle-tested labor movements. The middle-class UJC youth abhor everything Morales represents, and in those early years, the president was not able to travel to Santa Cruz due to their death threats.

UJC is part of a hemispheric network of right-wing paramilitary forces and has received ample support from its international allies. Appearing to be well-fed youth if we are to judge by their physique, they fight with bare torsos and have a fondness for liquor, even according to their leader Fernando Camacho who harangued them, “We cannot disrespect our Christ by continually drinking and listening to music.” When they don shirts, they are black shirts.

Alongside that tight-knit group built on a kind of white-settler pride, the political right has been recruiting young criminals nationwide with the lure of drugs and money. For those who are university youth, often their presence is less costly: Their professors make their grades contingent on their participation. The La Paz public university is the operational center for warehousing of arms and explosives and lodging youth trained in paramilitary techniques, recalling events in Nicaragua in 2018. They enjoy the protection of the Rector, Waldo Albarracin, who controls the autonomous space of that institution.

After winning, Evo’s observations about the opposition became much more direct: “Where did they come from? The come from the dictatorships …(and) they passed the government back and forth between them from 1985 to 2003.” He asked, “Where did (Samuel) Doria Medina come from: From (implementing) the privatizations. Tuto (Jorge) Quiroga? (From being vice president to the dictator) Banzer.”

Fernando Camacho for his part oversaw the burnings of homes and vehicles, beatings and provocations, and warned at a rally that his method of punishing traitors was the same as that of the infamous Colombian narcotrafficker Pablo Escobar, charged with 5,500 killings. Camacho added that the discovery of traitors would be followed by jail sentences rather than murder. Curiously, at just about that juncture, Mesa changed his stance from that of favoring an OAS recount of the votes, now taking place, to being categorically against that recount (Mesa’s actions are detailed below).

In his latest tactic, Camacho gave an ultimatum to resign to leftist and Indigenous president Evo Morales Ayma, who just won the elections by 47.08 percent as opposed to 36.51 percent garnered by the right. Camacho reportedly plans to guide the lowland region of Santa Cruz into secession from Bolivia, and then win the civil war that he hopes to incite.

The targets of right-wing wrath

As is true anywhere, the majority of the people in the sprawling city of Santa Cruz are poor, mainly migrants from the Indigenous nations of the Amazon and Chaco or the Aymara and Quechua nations of the high Andes. One-third of Santa Cruz has always voted for the political project of MAS –the same proportion as that of the left in many other countries– and in Santa Cruz the number of MAS votes is rising. When the poor were brutalized and sent to the hospital, a crowd gathered outside the hospital shouting, “Camacho, assassin!” and “We don’t want any strike, we want to work.”

Working-class residents of La Paz expressed their fear of the impending violence when Mesa challenged the vote count on October 20. Said one woman, “They hate us” – she is Indigenous – “and everything we have won, they want to destroy. Mesa killed us with Goni, and they want to return to that time.”

Since the right is trying to shut down the country, they attack vendors and storekeepers who resist the call for a general strike and they have brought to a halt the city of Santa Cruz. There, youths enter working-class neighbourhoods known to be bastions of MAS, armed with bats, sticks and explosives. Now they are using homemade bazookas and sticks with nails embedded. Their racist epithets are constant. They destroy local MAS campaign headquarters and the offices of campesino groups. One hundred UJC youth tried to lynch journalists.

Rightwing students in Sucre, who shut down the constitutional assembly in that city years ago and badly bloodied Indigenous campesinos, this October set the electoral tribunal on fire. Others attacked the president’s home in Cochabamba. In the lowland, tropical department of Pando, at 2:00 am long after the tribunal declared a victory for MAS, 150 motorcyclists from the right-wing forces attacked the home of the governor who was forced to flee to safety with his small children and his wife.

Cabinet ministers are receiving threatening phone messages and social media calls are being made to target their homes, with vandalism committed against the property of growing a number of them. Said the Minister of Government Carlos Romero whose children are receiving threats from the opposition: “I am right here if you need to threaten someone, but don’t threaten my children.”

After days of right-wing attacks, in the city of Montero in Santa Cruz, people of the age of the parents of the youths started clearing the debris and removing the blockades. UJC leaders got word, and transported armed youths to the scene. Their leader said, “If it’s bullets they want, I’ll give them bullets.” In cold blood, two of the MAS supporters were then killed, Marcelo Terrazas and Mario Salvatierra. One of the accused killers was dressed in full camouflage gear with all but his eyes covered by a black bandana, in other words, he was dressed like a paramilitary. The alleged killers and a number of their accomplices have been arrested.

The lies of the losing candidate

Mesa is notorious for his lies, one of the most infamous being his promise of justice, made when Goni fled, for those killed and injured in 2003. Unconscionably, the turmoil he unleashed in recent weeks had the public support of none other than the Organization of American States (OAS). They seemed to be joined at the hip with Mesa. The OAS was at that point demanding a second round of elections, in violation of Bolivia’s constitution. They called for a special meeting on Bolivia at their headquarters in Washington, with an ominous representation of less than admirable politicians: The governments of Brazil, Colombia and, lastly, Venezuela, by which they mean the U.S.-installed puppet Juan Guaido, who has been in the news these past few days for the revelation of his pact with Colombian paramilitaries, in which he contracted their violent services in exchange for allowing them control of the Colombo-Venezuelan border.

The actions of the OAS are unconscionable because they declared the vote count in Bolivia had stopped, however that assertion was one of Mesa’s lies. The country of Mexico took the lead in rejecting the favoritism of the OAS mission toward the right.

The official vote tabulation never halted. What stopped was the rapid count, called the Transmission of Preliminary Electoral Results or TREP in the Spanish acronym. The prior agreement was that TREP would only tabulate 80% of the total vote. On Sunday evening, October 20, having reached 83.85% of the total vote, TREP measured a lead of 4% by Evo Morales Ayma over Mesa. Mesa said the TREP count proved there was going to be a run-off election between the two of them and demanded a TREP count of 100%. He claimed that a count of 100% had been promised. Mesa was lying, according to the highest levels of MAS leadership.

Though it was not part of the original plan, the TREP count was reinitiated and the following night, Monday, at 23:59 hours, TREP made public new results representing 95.63% of the entire vote, showing that Evo Morales had won in the first round by the necessary 10% difference over Mesa.

At that point, Mesa executed an about-face and insisted that TREP had joined a massive fraud against him. For the record, when Mesa won with Goni against MAS, the difference was just 42,242 votes, while today, MAS has won by over 640,000 votes. Clearly, Mesa would be satisfied with nothing less than overturning the elections.

At the time the polls were closed, 12 copies of the Act that sums up the votes at each polling place, signed by the representatives of each political party, were distributed among them. A photograph of the Act was also sent via the internet to the Supreme Electoral authorities. These photos are available to the public on-line and easily investigated.

But those who allege foul play are not investigating anything, they are fanning what Bolivians of diverse political persuasions are calling “a psychosis.” Mesa’s few claims of fraud in the Acts that record the votes of each polling station, presented to the authorities, have been shown to be errors that were corrected, according to evidence on the same sheet of paper that was hidden from public view when Mesa’s forces made the argument for fraud.

Middle-class militants are fervent believers in the idea of stolen elections, absent real evidence. Meanwhile, the right-wing is encouraging panic buying of foodstuffs and for those who have cars, filling their tanks. It is a recipe for inflation. The MAS government has managed to guarantee food provision in most of the country with the exception of Santa Cruz.

The OAS agreed to the request made by the winning party MAS to recount the vote. Their condition is that the two leading candidates would accept the results as binding. That recount started on October 31 and is due to conclude on November 13. Mesa is now refusing to submit alleged proofs of fraud to the OAS, claiming the OAS is a pawn of MAS.

Mesa’s lies spare no one. Most recently, he claimed that the recount of the vote requested by the winning party was arranged unilaterally with the Organization of American States. The OAS had to publicly challenge Mesa, who at that point conceded that the OAS had telephoned him repeatedly to win Mesa’s consent to abide by the recount.

The Bolivian people versus the thuggery of the right

Workers and campesinos have declared a state of emergency against the return of the “privatizing oligarchs.” They organized enormous marches in the department of La Paz, the heartland of Aymara resistance which ignited the massive protests of 2003 that brought down president Goni. Bystanders applauded them as the social movements arrived from the edge of the vast canyon in El Alto to its depths in La Paz.

The intransigence of Mesa and Luis Fernando Camacho is clear, as their militants descend into an abyss of chaos. On November 6 they attacked thousands of Indigenous women in Cochabamba who marched with their children in support of Evo Morales. The racist rage of the right-wing is there for all to see. Women in Indigenous dress were kidnapped, and MAS mayor Patricia Arce (formerly a campesino union leader), was beaten, dragged through the dirt and doused with red paint in ritual fashion. She was made to kneel and beg for forgiveness. It is a “punishment” that the right uses repeatedly. Women in the grassroots of MAS point out that it is their sons who are being paid to join the shock brigades and attack their own mothers.

Massive rejection of the right-wing violence now includes many of those who voted for Mesa, some high churchmen close to the oligarchy, and tens of thousands of women who have marched in the last weeks, first to demand respect for the rural and Indigenous vote and then to decry the cruelties unleashed against those marching women. Bolivia has one of the highest representations of women politicians on earth and putting aside political affiliations, they have urged their compatriots to abjure violence. The rationality of MAS, the United Nations, the vast Indigenous and campesino populations and their urban relatives, and millions of mobilized women is such that the escalating savagery of the right can only be explained by a single factor: U.S. patronage.

    Cercando i discorsi dei Papi sul Cammino Neocatecumenale a partire da Paolo VI, che conosceva zero questo movimento, mi sono imbattuta in una cosa INAUDITA, per pura serendipità.

    Sul sito web neocatecumenale, viene riportato come fatto da Paolo VI un discorso all’udienza generale del 12 gennaio 1977, totalmente falsificato, distorto e “neocatecumenalizzato”.
    Se il titolo della pagina neocatecumenale fosse stato chiaro nel far intendere che il discorso riportato era da loro unilateralmente MODIFICATO, trasformato e “precisato”, non vi avrei proposto queste considerazioni.

    Invece l'introduzione data dai kikos è proprio questa: “Il Papa Paolo VI alle Comunità Neocatecumenali 12-1-1977” - Durante l’Udienza generale di mercoledì 12 gennaio, il Santo Padre San Paolo VI ha pronunciato il seguente discorso...
    E presenta un testo che sarebbe stato “pronunciato dal Santo Padre (San) Paolo VI durante quell’udienza generale”.

    Sappiamo tutti che nelle udienze generali del mercoledì il Papa parla a tutta l’assemblea dei fedeli in modo generale e non si sognerebbe MAI di dedicare un’intera udienza ad elogiare o approfondire un movimento in particolare, dato che l’udienza generale è generale, per l’appunto, proprio perché si riferisce ad una “generalità” di fedeli, a tutta la Chiesa.

    Vediamo come sul sito neocatecumenale è stato DISTORTO il discorso di Paolo VI.
    Ma credevano davvero che prima o poi qualcuno non se ne accorgesse? Mentire è un conto, ma mentire su certe cose, mettendo in bocca ad un Papa cose che non ha mai detto, è INAUDITO.
    Dannata impudenza!

    Qui sotto il discorso riportato dal sito vaticano.
    Evidenziazioni e grassetti sono nostri.
    Facciamo anzitutto notare che «un gruppo» di neocatecumenali è stato solo l'occasione per parlare d'altro, di qualcosa che vale per tutti i cristiani (i neocat non hanno mica l'esclusiva dello Spirito).

    Dopo il battesimo

    La presenza a questa Udienza d’un gruppo, notevole per numero e per dignità di partecipanti [ndr. si riferisce alla dignità episcopale, cioè ai vescovi, naturalmente: segue poi una virgola e quindi anche la menzione delle comunità neocat], di appartenenti alle «Comunità neocatecumenali» ci offre l’occasione di richiamare l’attenzione dei nostri visitatori e di quanti si collegano all’ascoltazione di questa nostra familiare parola, su due avvenimenti della Chiesa cattolica...
    [...] Siamo dunque in una fase apostolica, missionaria, didattica quanto mai accentuata nella vita della Chiesa; tutti vi dobbiamo essere impegnati: la edificazione del Corpo mistico di Cristo sulla terra, che è la nostra Chiesa presente, è dovere d’ogni credente (Cfr. Lumen Gentium, 33).

    In questa visione è chiaro, è auspicabile che si vengano moltiplicando gli sforzi per attuare questo immenso e urgente programma: evangelizzare, catechizzare; e si assiste alla fioritura di opere e di mezzi per dare all’annuncio del messaggio evangelico la sua migliore diffusione [ndr. non del Cammino ma in generale]...

    E poi diremo che coloro che con cuore semplice e generoso si mettono al servizio dell’evangelizzazione subiscono, certo per un segreto ma immancabile carisma dello Spirito Santo, una metamorfosi psicologica e morale caratteristica, quella che trasforma le difficoltà in stimoli, i pericoli in attrattive, le sconfitte stesse in titoli di merito e quindi di pace serena.

    Adesso possiamo comprendere anche la testimonianza che i nostri odierni visitatori ci offrono: essa si svolge intorno al cardine della vita cristiana che è il battesimo, il sacramento della rigenerazione cristiana, il quale deve ritornare ad essere ciò che era nella coscienza e nel costume delle prime generazioni del cristianesimo [ndr. sta parlando in linea di principio, le stesse cose si possono dire a chiunque consideri sul serio il proprio battesimo]. La prassi e la norma della Chiesa hanno introdotto la santa abitudine di conferire il battesimo ai neonati, lasciando che il rito battesimale concentrasse liturgicamente la preparazione che, ai primi tempi, quando la società era profondamente pagana, precedeva il battesimo, e che era detto catecumenato. Ma nell’ambiente sociale di oggi questo metodo ha bisogno d’essere integrato da una istruzione, da una iniziazione allo stile di vita proprio del cristiano, successiva al battesimo, cioè da un’assistenza religiosa, da un allenamento pratico alla fedeltà cristiana, da un inserimento effettivo nella comunità dei credenti, che è la Chiesa.

    Ecco la rinascita del nome «catecumenato», che certamente non vuole invalidare né sminuire l’importanza della disciplina battesimale vigente, ma la vuole applicare con un metodo di evangelizzazione graduale e intensivo, che ricorda e rinnova in certo modo il catecumenato d’altri tempi. (ndr. Il “catecumenato” non è proprio del Cammino Neocatecumenale, ma è una prassi di lunga tradizione descritto nel documento noto come OICA; il Santo Padre lo sa e quindi parla di catecumenato in senso generico).

    Chi è stato battezzato ha bisogno di capire, di ripensare, di apprezzare, di assecondare l’inestimabile fortuna del sacramento ricevuto. E noi siamo lieti di vedere che questo bisogno oggi è compreso dalle strutture ecclesiastiche istituzionali e fondamentali, le Parrocchie. Si prospetta così una catechesi successiva a quella che il Battesimo non ha avuto; la «pastorale degli adulti», come oggi si dice, viene delineando, crea nuovi metodi e nuovi programmi; poi nuovi ministeri sussidiari sostengono la più esigente assistenza del Sacerdote e del Diacono nell’insegnamento e nella partecipazione alla liturgia; nuove forme di carità, di cultura e di solidarietà sociale accrescono la vitalità della comunità cristiana e ne fanno di fronte al mondo la difesa, l’apologia, l’attrattiva.(ndr. E qui è chiaro che non si riferisce al Cammino Neocatecumenale, dove “carità” e “solidarietà sociale” sono sempre state parole sconosciute).

    Con la nostra Apostolica Benedizione. (ndr. A tutti i presenti, non solo al Cammino Neocatecumenale)

    Confrontiamo ora quanto pubblicato su ed attribuito alle parole di Papa Paolo VI, con gli errori di scrittura lasciati come da testo.
    Anche qui le evidenziazioni e i grassetti sono nostri.
    In giallo le affermazioni contenute nell’originale della Santa Sede.
    In verde tutte le aggiunte e le modificazioni neocatecumenali.
    In celeste le nostre considerazioni.

    (ndr. Se si chiama “San” Paolo VI, dà da pensare che questa pubblicazione non sia contestuale dell’epoca, quando Paolo VI era vivo e non era ancora Santo)

    «Siate tutti salutati “in nomine Domini”. Nonostante che la stagione, siamo nel cuore dell’inverno, non sia propizia ai pellegrinaggi, alle escursioni, alle visite, alle riunioni, tuttavia Noi siamo lieti di salutare ancora la nostra sala che SI FA ONORE con la presenza così copiosa di visitatori che adesso nomineremo. (ndr. Il Papa, nella sua sala “si fa onore” della presenza dei visitatori che nominerà. Non sono i visitatori ad essere “onorati” della presenza del Papa).

    Sappiate che vi salutiamo tutti veramente con la coscienza di essere relatori, di essere trasmettitori di una benedizione che ci trascende, cioè di essere dei rappresentanti, dei ministri di una grazia del Signore che vorremmo a tutti comunicare, e comunicare proprio con un senso di quella unione, di quella carità, di quella fusione di spirito, di quella unità che ci distingue per la nostra fede e per la fortuna che abbiamo tutti di appartenere al Corpo mistico di Cristo. (ndr. Questo mi sa che serve a “dimostrare” che anche il Cammino Neocatecumenale appartiene “al Corpo mistico di Cristo). A tutti il Nostro saluto benedicente. Accompagneremo poi con le nostre preghiere e con il ricordo spirituale il momento che voi, visitandoci, Ci procurate vera felicità di essere insieme e di essere con Cristo. 

    I saluti: abbiamo, con il Nostro grande piacere e con Nostra commozione, un gruppo di Vescovi particolari, i quali saluteremo, per non prolungare troppo questa prefazione alla Nostra udienza, poi a parte nella sala attigua . . .(ndr. Un “gruppo di vescovi "particolari"? E davanti a loro il Papa si “commuove”? Un po’ come fece Morcillo quando andò nelle baracche… ma fanno proprio commuovere tutti, ‘sti neocatecumenali! Inoltre si capisce bene che nella sala attigua saranno salutati solo “i vescovi particolari”, non tutti i camminanti).

    Perchè sappiate almeno l’origine di questi Vescovi e l’importanza di questo gruppo di altri nostri fratelli nell’episcopato, che abbiamo oggi l’onore di avere con Noi, leggeremo, come Ci è suggerito, la provenienza: abbiamo due Vescovi del Messico, abbiamo un Vescovo di EI Salvador, di Guatemala, dell’Honduras, della Repubblica Dominicana, poi due Vescovi del Brasile, dell’Ecuador, del Perù, dell’Uruguay, delle Filippine, abbiamo un Vescovo dell’Inghilterra, uno della Spagna e uno del Portogallo; e alcuni altri d’Italia, che sono l’Arcivescovo di Rossano, poi il Vescovo di Sarzana e Brugnato, Macerata e Tolentino, di Fabriano, di Rieti, di Teramo, Crotone, e finalmente di Piazza Armerina. (ndr. e qui mi sbellico dalle risate: l’impronta neocatecumenale è inconfondibile. Il Papa fa le presentazioni come Kiko!? Ad un’udienza generale nomina i “vescovi particolari” ad uno ad uno! Ma come si fa… Addirittura direbbe: “l’importanza di questo gruppo che abbiamo oggi l’onore di avere con noi!” Maddai… E chi glielo ha “suggerito” di leggere la provenienza? Kiko?).

    E’ un’udienza che HA VERAMENTE UN CARATTERE CATTOLICO (ndr. Casomai qualcuno fosse in dubbio, meglio precisare… A proposito: le altre udienze generali del Papa non avevano carattere cattolico? Questa lo ha VERAMENTE, le altre per finta?) per non dire ecumenico, ma cattolico vuol dire di più perchè è una perfezione già completa e già consumata, e quindi Noi salutiamo tutti questi confratelli, cerchiamo di leggere nel loro cuore il motivo della loro venuta e di corrispondere con tutta la nostra simpatia, col nostro incoraggiamento anche a questo loro atto tanto significativo del loro ministero. (ndr. Quale sarebbe l’ “atto significativo del loro ministero? Essere in rappresentanza del Cammino Neocatecumenale o essere vescovi? Perché se fosse per essere vescovi, che significato ha “simpatia ed incoraggiamento”? Ad un vescovo ci si rivolge così? “Ciao, sono il Papa, ti mostro simpatia ed incoraggiamento”…)

    Accompagnano il GRANDE GRUPPO che adesso nomineremo subito (ndr. il Papa freme per nominare “subito” questo “Grande Gruppo”, non vi preoccupate…), e per il quale ABBIAMO RISERVATO la piccola allocuzione che siamo soliti tenere nelle Udienze generali. (ndr. La “piccola allocuzione c’è, ma è veramente vaga e minuscola, non è questo pappardellone neocatecumenale. Anche da qui si evince che non può essere stato il Papa a parlare: non avrebbe mai tediato i presenti così a lungo, come di regola i Papi non hanno MAI fatto). RIPETO, (ndr. Il Papa “ripete”, casomai non si fosse capita l’importanza del Cammino Neocatecumenale nel 1977) questi Vescovi siano tutti da Noi salutati, E STAREI PER DIRE, ABBRACCIATI; SIAMO TANTO UNITI di più per la loro presenza nel dare omaggio alla nostra Santa Chiesa, nell’onorare Gesù Cristo, nell’avere l’ansia dell’apostolato, di attingere le anime quali sono oggi nel mondo, e nella loro speranza comune che dura nel tempo e trascende il tempo, per l’escatologia finale dell’incontro visibile e pieno con Nostro Signor Gesù Cristo. (ndr. tutti questi elogi per i vescovi neocatecumenali).

    A loro, il Nostro RIVERENTE RINGRAZIAMENTO per la loro partecipazione a questa udienza, il Nostro aiuto e la Nostra benedizione che vuol arrivare anche, carissimi confratelli nell’Episcopato, alle vostre Diocesi rispettive, e sappiate davvero che la preghiera, l’augurio, la speranza comune in Cristo accompagna questi nostri voti. .

    Adesso, dunque, salutiamo innanzi tutto il GRANDE GRUPPO che fa la parte principale di questa udienza – e ne diremo poi qualche cosa -: sono parroci e missionari laici della comunità neo-catecumenale. Sono provenienti da diversi Paesi e, come vedete, sono componenti una comunità molto varia – sacerdoti, religiosi, laici, ecc. – e a tutti diamo un cordiale benvenuto. Diremo poi alcune parole per questa occasione e per lo scopo che li riunisce e li fa professanti la loro fede NELLA CHIESA, e infine la Nostra particolare benedizione. RIPETIAMO, COMUNITÀ NEO-CATECUMENALI DI PAESI E DI DIVERSI CONTINENTI. (ndr. il Papa ripete ancora, si vede che vuol vendere bene il prodotto, fosse stato davvero il Papa. Ma chi è che mette parole in bocca al Papa per vendere bene il prodotto?).

    Salutiamo adesso il GRUPPO PRINCIPALE, dando loro quel PICCOLO REGALO, diciamo, che Noi siamo soliti dare nella Nostra udienza generale, cioè una parola, una parola che vorrebbe essere poi soggetto di meditazione, di riflessione, se non altro di prova della nostra simpatia per chi la ascolta. (ndr. Quinta volta che il Papa “saluta” il “Gruppo Principale”… Seguite bene, poi alla fine dell’articolo viene la BATTUTA, poveri neocatecumenali, che miseria! Poi il Papa dà ai neocatecumenali un “piccolo regalo”, prassi assolutamente neocatecumenale, come quando danno i santini dei “santoni”, i libri (a pagamento)… Ed il regalo che il Papa dà ai neocatecumenali cos’è? UNA PAROLA, prova della “nostra” simpatia per chi ascolta, cioè anche per i non neocatecumenali presenti all’udienza generale).

    “La presenza, diciamo, a questa udienza di un gruppo, notevole per numero - siete quasi tutti voi - 
    e per dignità dei partecipanti  - i vostri DIRIGENTI e soprattutto il gruppo di Vescovi CHE AVETE PORTATO CON VOI - di appartenenti alle comunità neo-catecumenali,Ci offre l’occasione di richiamare l’attenzione dei nostri visitatori e di quanti si cOlleganoall’ascoltazione di questa nostra familiare parola, intanto su due avvenimenti della Chiesa Cattolica, e cioè sul Sinodo dell’Episcopato del 1974,che ebbe per tema allora l’evangelizzazionel’evangelizzazione nel nostro tempo, COME SI FA ADESSO A PROPAGARE IL VANGELO: questo fu il tema del Sinodo del ’74, (ndr. Ma ve lo immaginate il Papa che per spiegare l’evangelizzazione dice “come si fa adesso a propagare il Vangelo?” Nemmeno “ad annunziare”, proprio a “propagare, la fissa dei neocatecumenali) che diede materia alla Nostra successiva Esortazione apostolica “Evagelii Nuntiandi”, che fu pubblicata l’8 dicembre del ’75.

     “Se avessimo la VELLEITÀ DI FAR LA RÉCLAME ai Nostri documenti, vorremmo quasi raccomandarvelo, perchè è tanto denso, è tanto tributario a tutto quello che i Vescovi hanno detto nel Sinodo. Ho cercato di interpretare, di raccogliere tutte le loro idee, di ordinarle e di renderle accessibili in linguaggio il più semplice possibile, ma anche il più importante e chiaro possibile, che ci fa arditi, ripeto, a raccomandarlo a voi e specialmente che volete essere i neocatecumenali, che volete, cioè, DARE ISTRUZIONE, evangelizzazione a queste GRANDI SCHIERE DI POPOLI CHE RIUSCITE AD AVVICINARE.”(ndr. Ma come? La raccomandazione ad attenersi alle risultanze di un Sinodo il Papa la chiama “velleità di far la réclame”? Ma stiamo scherzando…)
    Credo che sarebbe buono per voi e buono per i vostri allievi, PER I VOSTRI DISCEPOLI. Fra due Sinodi: quello della “Evangelizzazione”, come evangelizzare oggi; 

    II secondo avvenimento, invece, è ancora futuro, e cioè avrà luogo quest’anno, a cominciare dal 30 settembre: l’altro Sinodo dell’Episcopato.Avremo qui circa duecento Vescovi che vengono da tutte la parti del mondo, nominati dalle rispettive Conferenze episcopali. Quale sarà il tema? II tema riprende quello della evangelizzazione sotto un altro aspetto, cioè quello del “catechismo”; come si insegna la religione specialmente ai fanciulli, ai ragazzi, alla gioventù e anche agli uomini maturi, in questa stagione della nostra civiltà; e come si diventa maestri di catechismo. Sono i Vescovi che hanno voluto questo tema, lo riprenderemo e lo svilupperemo; questo per dire come voi catecumenali siete d’attualità. quello della “Catechesi”: come catechizzare i giovani e gli adulti in questa epoca Attualità del neocatecumenato...

    Quante volte, facendo l’esame della storia che ha passato e ha caratterizzato i periodi della storia della Chiesa, si dice: “Ma di che cosa si occupavano?” O c’era la guerra fra i tali stati o c’erano davvero le tali questioni dogmatiche ecc., che interessavano sé e no l’opinione pubblica e l’apostolato pastorale. (ndr. Può un Papa in un’udienza dire queste cose, con questo linguaggio diretto e semplificato?).

    La Chiesa è ritornata sopra le sue funzioni e i suoi doveri pastorali, e il primo dovere pastorale è quello di annunciare il Vangelo e andare incontro al mondo e dire: `Guarda, io ti porto il messaggio, il messaggio che GLI ANGELI HANNO PORTATO ALLA TERRA’: `Gloria a Dio e pace in terra’, e poi il messaggio di Cristo, annunciare il Vangelo, cioè la parola buona insegnataci da Gesù Cristo. (ndr. Il Papa direbbe che la Chiesa, che aveva abbandonato le sue funzioni e i suoi doveri, oggi vi è ritornata sopra, possibile? Potrebbe anche pensarlo, ma non lo direbbe mai)

    La Chiesa torna sopra le sue funzioni: annunciare il Vangelo al mondo Questa coscienza, RIPETO, è vigile e operante nella Chiesa di oggi, e la impegna tutta –quello che è anche tanto bello– i ministri, cioè Vescovi, sacerdoti, religiosi, religiose, ecc. e fedeli! I fedeli stessi diventano voce che deve propagare questo messaggio; il messaggio dell’annuncio evangelico che oggi più che mai è degno di essere annunciato per due titoli CHE SEMBRANO CONTRADDITORI
    Uno, dobbiamo annunciarlo PERCHÈ IL MONDO È SORDO, e allora BISOGNA ALZARE LA VOCE, e allora BISOGNA TROVARE LA MANIERA DI FAR CAPIRE, e allora bisogna insistere, BISOGNA CONVOCARE TUTTI AD UNA SCUOLA NUOVA, ecc. La difficoltà diventa provocante, diventa un incentivo per diventare MAESTRI DEL NOSTRO CATECHISMO, cioè della Verità del Vangelo da annunciare. Perchè il mondo è sordo E, secondo motivo, che è proprio l’opposto del primo e cioè per chi sa vedere, per chi sa leggere nel cuore delle folle, nel cuore del mondo vede che in fondo c’è un malcontento, c’è un’inquietudine, c’è un bisogno di una parola vera, di una parola buona, di una parola che dica il senso della vita! che il mondo non sa più quale sia, che non ha più la forza di definire; vive come miope e come cieco in mezzo alle tenebre. (ndr. Ma figurati se il Papa parla così…).

    Noi abbiamo la lanterna, noi abbiamo la lampada, noi abbiamo la Parola del Vangelo che diventa la luce del mondo. II Signore ha detto ai suoi apostoli: voi siete la luce del mondo. Ecco, se siamo la luce del mondo dobbiamo andare incontro a questa gente smarrita, così arrabbiata, così crudele, diventata perfino così sbandata, così senza principi, senza linee di con dotta buona e umana, e andare incontro e dire: ecco, guarda, questo è il sentiero, questa è la via. E ripeto, per queste due ragioni, l’una la difficoltà e l’altra l’opportunità di annunciare il Vangelo, ecco che la Chie sa prende la parola. ed ha bisogno di una parola che dica il senso della vita.

    Noi abbiamo la Parola del Vangelo Siamo dunque in una fase apostolica, missionaria, didattica, quanto mai accentuata nella vita della Chiesa; tutti vi dobbiamo essere impegnati. L’edificazione del Corpo mistico di Cristo sulla terra, che è la nostra Chiesa presente, è dovere, come dice il Concilio, non soltanto dei preti, dei Vescovi ecc., ma di ogni credente; ciascuno deve essere testimone, deve saper tradurre, se non altro con l’esempio e con il suo appoggio ecc., il messaggio di cui è depositario.
    Non esiste un cristiano muto, non esiste un cristiano sterile, non esiste un cristiano che viva per sé; DEVE VIVERE PER LA COMUNITÀ, per il Corpo mistico che si chiama la Chiesa. 

    Ci sono tante iniziative parallele e UN PO' SIMILI A QUELLA VOSTRA, che adesso ascolta (ndr. ma che vuol dire: "iniziative un po' simili a quella vostra che adesso ascolta?" Forse vuol dire che adesso li lascia dare una testimonianza), e si assiste così alla fioritura di opere e di mezzi per dare all’annuncio del messaggio evangelico la sua migliore diffusione e interpretazione, potremmo dire. Noi osserveremo come questo multiforme fenomeno della Santa Chiesa non riguarda soltanto l’aspetto scolastico, didattico delle sue attività, non è soltanto insegnamento da MAESTRO a scolaro, è piuttosto quello più ampio, più pedagogico e più vitale, che riguarda anche lo stile della vita, nel quale l’insegnamento della verità religiosa è parallelo a quello scolastico, anzi è unito alla professione della vita di cui l’insegnamento è norma e principio.

    In secondo luogo noteremo come questo dovere non assume in chi lo compie e anche in chi ne è favorito, la qualifica di un peso grave e difficile, anche se in realtà esso lo è.
    Una delle grandi difficoltà che i preti incontrano, qual è? Eh, non vengono! MA CHE NOIA, SENTIRE LA PREDICA, SENTIRE LA LEZIONE, IMPARARE IL CATECHISMO, ma MI STANCA, a me piace andare a spasso, andare al cinematografo, giocare, ecc., MA INSOMMA QUESTA CHIESA CHE INSEGNA DIVENTA TANTO NOIOSA. Non è così! Diciamolo a noi stessi e diciamolo anche al nostro popolo. (ndr. Qui si tocca veramente l’apice: il Papa dichiarerebbe che i preti e la Chiesa sono una NOIA!).

    Chi ha capito il segreto della Verità che le nostre parole contengono diventa come fulminato da questa luce, da questa verità, e si trasforma tanto nell’apostolo, il prete o l’annunciatore, quanto nel discepolo che ascolta: “AH! NON CREDEVO CHE FOSSE COSÌ BELLO, AH, MA È VERO, MA GUARDA…”. Si apre, ripeto, un orizzonte di luce e di bellezza che era quasi insospettato...
    lo vorrei chiedere se ci sono dei missionari tra voi: perchè fate i missionari? MA PERCHÈ SIETE ESALTATI DAL SENSO DEL VANGELO, che cosa è annunciare la Verità, annunciare il segreto della vita, i disegni di Dio, le speranze che non muoiono! Ma diventa una tale bellezza che non ci si può più sottrarre e si diventa chiamati ad essere anche noi apostoli e annunciatori di questa verità! Il compimento di questo dovere dell’annunciare non è più noioso, come il compimento dell’ascoltare non è più fastidioso
    ha in se stesso la rifusione della fatica che esso comporta e rende felici i suoi testimoni, li rende sicuri, li rende partecipi in anticipo dei beni di quel Regno di Dio che essi vanno annunziando.

    Nel Nostro posto, qui al centro della Chiesa, noi abbiamo da ricevere tanti che vengono da lontano, dalle missioni, e soprattutto questi CHE RICEVIAMO CON TANTO PIACERE, li lasciamo parlare per avere da loro la testimonianza. Hanno difficoltà enormi alcuni, NON SI SA COME POSSONO VIVERE, campare, vincere le malattie, LE INIMICIZIE, i pericoli, ecc., eppure ve lo dico perchè siate contenti anche voi, quando loro dicono e definiscono se stessi dicono una felicità che non ha confronti con le altre felicità del mondo. E se Noi osiamo dire: “Ma lei resterebbe qui o vuol tornare?” “Tornare, tornare!”. E VANNO IN MEZZO A DIFFICOLTÀ ENORMI MA PERCHÈ SON PRESI DALLA GIOIA DEL VANGELO. (nrd. Tutta questa sviolinata sui “missionari” neocatecumenali nel testo originario è completamente ASSENTE) Dunque, e poi diremo che coloro che con cuore semplice e generoso si mettono al servizio della evangelizzazione, subiscono, certo per un segreto ma immancabile carisma dello Spirito Santo, una metamorfosi psicologica e morale che è caratteristica; è quella metamorfosi, quel cambiamento, che trasformale difficoltà in stimoliRIPETO quello che dicevo prima, i missionari perchè ritornano? Ma perchè c’è tanto da fare, ma perchè c’è quella povera gente da consolare, ma perchè c’è il pericolo, “devo andare io a guarire i lebbrosi, devo andare io a scongiurare che questa povera gente sia sopraffatta da altri movimenti sociali e diventi schiava di situazioni intollerabili”La difficoltà, l’ostacolo, diventa attrattiva, che prima faceva paura, faceva noia, faceva fastidioinvece poi diventa la forza che attrae, che impegna, che lega, e che rende l’apostolo, diciamo la grande parola, ma detta in un senso generale, “martire” cioè testimone.

    Ed è stupendo questo fenomeno, che chi sa vedere i fenomeni della Chiesa – Noi abbiamo questa responsabilità e questa fortuna – non può non dire: grazie, Dio, perchè hai dato a me questa visione, di vedere appunto tanti che sono gli entusiasti del Vangelo, del Vangelo difficile, del Vangelo penoso, del Vangelo che costa, del Vangelo che non rende, del Vangelo che URTA CONTRO TUTTE LE MENTALITÀ E TUTTI I VIZI E GLI OSTACOLI DEL MONDO. (ndr. Sono davvero “fenomeni” della Chiesa, ma da baraccone. Fortunatamente il Papa ha “la responsabilità e la FORTUNA di poterli vedere e ringraziare Dio perché gli ha dato la visione per vedere che gli ENTUSIASTI del Vangelo difficile sono tanti e sono neocatecumenali).

    II Vangelo, ripeto, rende felici coloro che lo predicano (ndr. Il Papa ancora “ripete”…)e trasformale difficoltà in stimoli, i pericoli in attrattive, e le sconfitte stesse?sembra un paradosso ? le sconfitte stesse cioè il non riuscire, in titoli di merito (però ho fatto quel che potevo!) quindi anche di pace che discende serena in questi cuori che non hanno avuto neanche la soddisfazione dell’esito delle loro fatiche. (ndr. Apologia degli insuccessi) Adesso possiamo comprendere anche la testimonianza che i nostri odierni visitatori ci offrono: essa si svolge intorno al cardine della vita cristiana che è il Battesimo.

    La parola “catecumenato” è riferita al Battesimo: catecumenato era il periodo di preparazione al Battesimo. Adesso il Battesimo non ha più, almeno diffusivamente e didatticamente, questo sviluppo. Assistiamo alla fioritura di nuove forme per l’annuncio del Vangelo E allora questi dicono: “Beh, lo faremo dopo il Battesimo”.
    NON È BASTATA LA GRAZIA SANTIFICANTE, anzi la grazia santificante non ha fatto che accendere un fuoco che deve essere poi illuminante e propagantesi nella vita. S. Agostino ha un accenno a questo: “non possiamo anticipare? facciamo dopo il Catecumenato”, cioè l’istruzione, il completamento e l’educazione, tutta la parte educativa della Chiesa, dopo il Battesimo (ndr il Papa dice che “la grazia santificante non basta”. Maddaiiii. Magari non è la grazia che “NON BASTA”, ma l’uomo che volge le spalle a Dio).

    ii sacramento della rigenerazione cristiana deve ritornare ad essere ciò che era nella coscienza e nel costume delle prime generazioni del cristianesimo, la preparazione che i primi tempi, quando la società era profondamente pagana, precedeva il Battesimo e che era detta catecumenato.
    Dopo la Chiesa ha concentrato questo periodo; perchè? Ma perchè le famiglie erano tutte cattoliche, erano tutte buone, tutte cristiane, la società era in fondo orientata cristianamente; impareranno lungo la via. Ma adesso che la nostra società non è più uniforme, omogenea, è pluralista, anzi è tutta piena di contraddizioni e di ostacoli al Vangelo in se stessa, nell’ambiente sociale di oggi, questo metodo ha bisogno di essere, DICEVOintegrato da una istruzione, da una iniziazione postuma, allo stile di vita proprio del cristiano: questa deve essere successiva al Battesimo.Cioè da un’assistenza religiosa, da un allenamento pratico alla fedeltà cristiana, da un inserimento effettivo nella comunità dei credenti, che è la Chiesa. (ndr. Questa VERA frase del Papa è stata del tutto omessa).

    Il Catecumenato: preparazione al Battesimo. Il. Neocatecumenato “dopo il Battesimo” QUESTO IL SEGRETO DELLA VOSTRA FORMULA, cioè: dà una assistenza religiosa, conferisce un allenamento pratico alla fedeltà cristiana e compie un inserimento effettivo nella comunità dei credenti che è la Chiesa, dopo che uno è già effettivamente, soprannaturalmente entrato nella Chiesa, ma è stato come un seme che non ha ancora avuto il bene di svolgersi Realizza un effettivo inserimento nella Chiesa Ecco la rinascita quindi del nome “catecumenato”, che certamente non vuole invalidare nè sminuire l’importanza della disciplina battesimale vigente, ma la vuole applicare con un metodo di evangelizzazione graduale e intensivo che ricorda e rinnova in certo modo il catecumenato d’altri tempi.
    Chi è stato battezzato ha bisogno di capire, di ripensare, di apprezzare, di assecondare l’inestimabile fortuna del Sacramento ricevuto... Si prospetta così una catechesi successiva a quella che il battesimo non ha avuto: “la pastorale degli adulti”, come si dice oggi, viene delineando, crea nuovi metodi e nuovi programmi, poi nuovi ministeriquanto bisogno c’è di chi assista: ecco i catechisti, ecco le suore stesse, ecco le famiglie che diventano anche loro MAESTRE di questa evangelizzazione postuma al Battesimo – “la pastorale degli adulti”, come oggi si dice, viene delineando e crea nuovi metodi e nuovi programmi, poi nuovi ministeri sussidiari sostengono la più esigente assistenza del sacerdote e del diacono nell’insegnamento e nella partecipazione alla liturgia, nuove forme di carità, di cultura e di solidarietà sociale accrescono la vitalità della comunità cristiana e ne fanno di fronte al mondo la difesa, l’apologia e l’attrattiva.

    Bisogno compreso dalle parrocchie Tanta gente si polarizza verso queste comunità neocatecumenali perchè vede che là c’è una sincerità, c’è una verità, c’è qualche cosa di vivo e di autentico: c’è Cristo che vive nel mondo. E questo avvenga con la

    Nostra apostolica benedizione». (ndr. Pare che la benedizione finale sia indirizzata ai soli neocatecumenali: “questo avvenga con la nostra benedizione apostolica”).

    Questi i due testi a confronto. Se in verde sono le aggiunte neocatecumenali…Mistificazione pura.

    Ma la BATTUTA che vi avevo promesso, è ancora più spassosa.

    Dopo tutte le filippiche e le sviolinature che i neocatecumenali attribuirebbero al Papa, avendole invece scritte loro, si legge su Zenit, in una rimembranza di quella lontana udienza del 1977, che il Papa “nell’incontro di saluto avuto con gli Iniziatori del Cammino, Kiko e Carmen, al termine di quell’Udienza" chiese: “Chi è Kiko?”. “Sono io”, rispose Kiko.”

    Bella conoscenza del Cammino Neocatecumenale!

    Il Papa, nel 1977, nemmeno sapeva chi era Kiko… Eppure, quando arrivò nel 1968, nove anni prima, Kiko ce lo trovò come pontefice.
    Nove anni di anonimato…

    "Se debe mejorar la calidad de la energía": Eduardo Almeida


    La Prensa

    San Pedro Sula.

    Eduardo Almeida, representante del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID), habló con LA PRENSA sobre la situación de la Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctrica (Enee) y el interés que tiene el organismo para apoyar en la recuperación de la estatal eléctrica, además adelantó cómo va el proceso de auditorías que se aplicarán en 2020 a la Enee.

    ¿Qué interés tiene el BID en la problemática de la Enee?La importancia que tiene el BID en la Enee es por el impacto macroeconómico y microeconómico en la economía de Honduras.

    En lo macroeconómico porque el servicio de la deuda de la Enee está en 2,500 millones de dólares, el servicio de deuda representa cerca del 1% del PIB, el pago de la deuda son $200 millones al año, que se están dejando de invertir en educación e infraestructura.

    En este caso nuestro apoyo a la Secretaría de Finanzas es con lo que llamamos técnicamente como swap de deuda para hacer que la deuda que existe de la Enee sea más barata.

    El próximo año debemos tener una operación de garantía, que no es financiar directamente, pero es garantizar un fondo para hacer el swap.

    ¿En el campo microeconómico como afecta al país?En términos de competitividad del país es dado a través de buenos servicios de energía, la tarifas deben ser optimizadas, las pérdidas deben ser reducidas; pero hoy en día están en 32%, cuando la media en Latinoamérica es de 15%.

    Si el país quiere atraer industria tiene que trabajar sobre la calidad del acceso a la energía.

    ¿Cómo avanza el proceso de las auditorías que harán a la Enee en 2020?El Gobierno nos pidió dos auditorías, estamos financiando a los auditores internacionales que harán una revisión financiera y de procesos.

    La auditoría financiera verificará los estados financieros pasados de la Enee y la otra los procesos de facturación, operación y despacho de energía.

    De la financiera, la licitación ya está en el mercado y la de procesos tenemos un contrato con una auditora internacional a la cual vamos a extender el contrato.


    En mesas de trabajo discutirán homologar planes de arbitrios


    La Prensa


    Representantes de la empresa privada y del sector público se reunirán en mesas de trabajo este miércoles para iniciar la búsqueda de soluciones en torno a los cobros de tasas municipales que afectan la competitividad de la industria.

    El sábado pasado, dirigentes empresariales se reunieron en San Pedro Sula para afinar la propuesta que llevarán a las mesas de trabajo con las municipalidades y otras autoridades del Gobierno.

    Alberto Bográn, directivo del Consejo Hondureño de la Empresa Privada (Cohep), expresó que con la participación de la Federación de Cámaras de Comercio e Industrias de Honduras (Fedecámara), la Asociación de Municipios de Honduras (Amhon) y la Secretaría de Desarrollo Económico se están consensuando las bases que exigen la revisión y el establecimiento de planes de arbitrios orientados a establecer tributos municipales justos y en ley que favorezcan a los municipios y permitan a las empresas ser competitivas.

    Posición1-Según el Cohep, las municipalidades han aprovechado la autonomía municipal para imponer altas obligaciones tributarias.

    2-El Cohep solicita estandarizar los cobros por tasas municipales.

    Bográn explicó que en las mesas de trabajo se abordarán los temas de simplificación del trámite de permisos de operación y del sistema catastral municipal, siendo estos los de mayor impacto económico y atraso en la eficiencia del trámite de los mismos.

    El Cohep indicó que esperan que sea el inicio de un trabajo en conjunto para llegar a tener planes de arbitrios homologados entre todas las municipalidades del país, que generen certidumbre para seguir estimulando la inversión en el país, como lo señaló Miriam Guzmán, directora del Servicio de Administración de Rentas (SAR).

    Julio Raudales, expresidente del Colegio Hondureño de Economistas (CHE), indicó que en el país es necesario generar un pacto fiscal debido a que las altas cargas tributarias continúan alejando la inversión en Honduras.

    “Es urgente, hace mucho tiempo lo estamos pidiendo y creo que es un buen momento para que se vaya pensando en hacerlo”, dijo Raudales.


    Más de 70 emprendedores de San Pedro Sula participaron en el i7 Day 2019

    San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

    Más de 70 emprendimientos y 400 personas de la zona norte de Honduras participaron en la segunda edición del i7 Day del Instituto Hondureño de Ciencia, Tecnología y la Innovación (Ihcieti).

    El evento reunió a los emprendedores de la zona norte que han participado en Honduras Start Up donde recibieron capacitaciones a través de talleres y conferencias magistrales para seguir formándose y desarrollando sus proyectos tecnológicos.

    Los talleres fueron impartidos por 12 emprendedores exitosos hondureños que hablaron de temas de desarrollo de videojuegos, aplicaciones, las tendencias tecnológicas, como tener modelos de negocios, manejo de redes sociales y experiencias virtuales.

    Los niños también disfrutaron de la zona de videojuegos.

    Carlos Valdiviezo, cofundador de Finde, manifestó que como emprendedores exitosos están transmitiendo experiencias para ayudar a crecer a otros proyectos.

    “El Honduras Start Up nos ha permitido convertirnos en una empresa más sólida, nos dio las herramientas para crecer y consolidar a la empresa”, dijo Valdiviezo.

    Gerardo Flores, vocero de Honduras Start Up, explicó que el i7 Day es parte de la Start Up Academy que está formando a los emprendedores.

    Flores detalló que cuatro expertos internacionales brindaron las conferencias magistrales con cuatro temas: eSports, cómo cambiar el mundo con tecnología, el fracaso en los emprendimientos e inteligencia artificial.

    Edson Araúz, costarricense, habló de cómo los jóvenes están generando entre 2,000 y 40,00 dólares a través de los videojuegos en torneos profesionales.

    Parte del objetivo del Honduras Start Up era incentivar a jóvenes y niños a conocer la tecnología de realidad virtual para que empiecen a crear nuevas ideas.

    Mateo Salvato, conferencista argentino de 20 años, brindo la conferencia de cómo se puede cambiar el mundo con la tecnología.

    Salvato ganó con 16 años el mundial de robótica y a través de sus experiencias incentivó a los jóvenes a empezar a crear proyectos para sus comunidades que ayuden a transformar su entorno con la tecnología.

    Además de los talleres y conferencias, el i7 Day ofreció al público zonas de realidad virtual, videojuegos y estands promocionando los emprendimientos locales.

    Caption Contest: Hong Kongers Discover Unlikely New Hero In Fight For Democracy


    As the mainstream media so quickly explained, an image tweeted by President Trump (of his head on Sylvester Stallone's Rocky character's body) was "altered."

    But, this epic troll out of nowhere has been embraced by the young men and women of Hong Kong following President Trump's decision to sign  Washington's Hong Kong Democracy Bill backing the protesters against "his great friend" President Xi's China threats.

    In another torrid night of violence, protesters stood briefly facing off with police holding up images of the Trump/Rocky hybrid image.

    “Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong,” thousands of protestors chanted in a public square as they waved American flags and held up copies of the photo composite.

    Caption That!

    "It ain't about how may times you get knocked down by wooden bullets or tear gas canisters, it's how may times you get back up that counts..."

    "...he's not the messiah, he's a very naught boy!"

    The pictures 'The West' receive from Hong Kong are just as 'managed' as the images that are allowed through China's firewall. As Jeff Brown recently explained, there's a lot more bubbling under the surface in Hong Kong...

    Hong Kong’s GDP and other official data are not included in Mainland China’s statistics, so Baba Beijing doesn’t really give a rat’s ass whether the economy craters or not, which it is. HK has 7.44 million inhabitants, ranking it as a second-tier city on the Mainland, with Chengdu, Dongguan and Wuhan. HK is falling into recession, down 3.2% in third quarter 2019 alone. In August, there were 850,000 fewer tourists than the year before. People are leaving in droves: students, businesspersons and service workers. I have a good friend who is a doctor. He just shut down his clinic in HK and moved his practice to Beijing. Another friend teaching there contacted me about working in Shenzhen, because HK has become such a Western color revolution disaster. There are thousands like them. Billions of dollars are being drained out of people’s lives.


    The CIA and FBI have well known offices in Hong Kong. Including the American consulate, there are more than 1,000 US government agents in the territory, and they are not there to just eat dim sum and enjoy a ride on the Star Ferry, as enjoyable as all that is. This does not include thousands of so-called NGOs, many that are CIA-FBI-NED-MI6-Soros-Omidyar color revolution chop shops. Baba Beijing doesn’t mind, as they are vacuuming petaflops of signal and human intelligence on all their sabotage and chaos, providing valuable planning and vaccination to prevent another color revolution in China, like 1989’s Tiananmen demonstration. For every color revolution saboteur and spy, there’s probably 1-2 Mainland agents watching their every move, recording every second of signal communication. It’s like an entomologist having a test tube full of maggot-filled dog shit to study up close. Priceless. Somebody call MasterCard to film a trendy, new ad.

    There are more than 800 Christian churches and another 800 Christian schools in HK. There is open evidence that many in both groups are working hand-in-hand with the rioting saboteurs, to provide cover and logistics, with the CIA gangsters providing the millions to pay for all of it. Many of these property wrecking gangsters are members of these Christian outfits, all because of their hatred of communist-socialist China.

    Always remember that yes, Hong Kong returned to the Mainland, under the 1997 Basic Law Treaty negotiated between Margaret Thatcher and Deng Xiaoping, but under the One Country-Two Systems agreement, to last until 2047. On the left is communist-socialist China, getting richer, more advanced and more powerful by the day. On the right is jungle capitalist, neoliberal Hong Kong, owned lock, stock and barrel by ten multibillionaire families, who exploit it like a metropolitan Honduras.

    They are merely inconvenienced by the West’s color revolution, but will still be gazillionaires, even if the territory implodes. This, while Hong Kong has some of the most unaffordable housing in the world, with more and more of the ever-poorer middle and lower classes being driven into homelessness, sardine packed shoebox apartments, or wire cages to stay off the streets.

    Poverty has been increasing for years in HK and now accounts for 20% of the people and growing. One-third of these impoverished are elderly. It’s the capitalist American Dream. Tent cities can’t be far behind in HK’s still grossly underdeveloped and neglected New Territories...

    ...The West’s color revolution chaos in HK is a wonderful poster child for Baba Beijing to show the world why Eurangloland’s fake democracy is a disaster for humanity and Planet Earth, while communist-socialist China just keeps on trucking like a highspeed train into the 22nd century. If you are living behind the Great Western Firewall, you may not be noticing this contrast, but billions of citizens in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Oceania are. Hong Kong’s destruction is one of Baba Beijing’s best public relations coups ever. Thank you, Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi!

    Un abominable plan terrorista de Fidel Castro y del Che Guevara que verdaderamente le daría un ¨Viernes Negro¨ a New York con más víctimas mortales que el 9/11


    Un plan terrorista de Fidel Castro que verdaderamente le daría un ¨Viernes Negro¨ a Nueva York

    Por Pedro Pablo Arencibia Cardoso 
    Pasemos ahora a un ejemplo del terrorismo Castrista después de su toma del Poder en enero de 1959
    Es conocido que Fidel Castro en 1962 sugirió a la URSS dar el primer golpe nuclear. Fidel Castro, sin sonrojarse, ha dicho posteriormente que eso había sido un error de traducción del Embajador soviético. Las personas que se sonrojan son aquellas que tienen vergüenza o les queda un poco de ella, pero los que no la tienen... En la guerra nuclear que hubiera desatado ese primer golpe nuclear hubieran muerto muchos millones de personas inocentes, luego son falsas las palabras de Fidel Castro cuando afirma en la antes mencionada reflexión sobre la muerte de Osama Bin Laden: ¨… en cambio, opuestos por principios a todo acto terrorista que condujera a la muerte de personas inocentes…¨ Como detalle curioso, poco conocido, diré que en los años 80s del pasado siglo XX los Castro trataron nuevamente de tener armas nucleares según plantea Vasili Mitrokhin archivero durante 30 años de la KGB que desertó a Gran Bretaña.

    Pero el ejemplo del carácter terrorista del Castrismo posterior al triunfo revolucionario que deseo detallar en este artículo no es ese precisamente; es un ejemplo menos conocido: concretamente es el plan terrorista de Fidel Castro y de Ernesto ¨Che¨ Guevara para ser llevado a cabo en noviembre de 1962 y que hubiera ocasionado miles y miles de muertes y hubiera destruido parte de Nueva York de no haber sido descubierto y frustrado por el Buró Federal de Investigaciones de los Estados Unidos. 

    (Parada de la tienda Macy´s de 1962)

    La noticia fue cubierta en el diario New York Times del 18 de noviembre de 1962 pero hoy se conocen más detalles de ese horrendo plan que había ya pasado de la fase de planificación. Los escritores Humberto Fontova y Servando González han investigado sobre dicho plan que muy probablemente hubiera tenido una cifra más alta de muertes que la cantidad del luctuoso 9/11, ya que los atentados se iban a llevar a cabo en múltiples lugares, entre ellos las tres tiendas más grande del mundo en ese entonces, y en una fecha donde se alcanzan las cifras máximas de venta del año por los bajísimos premios que se ofertan en el llamado ¨Viernes Negro ¨, que siempre es el día posterior al Día de Acción de Gracia o ¨Thanksgiving Day¨ y el Día de la Parada de la tienda Macy's correspondiente al año 1962. Los detalles de dicho plan que aparecen en este artículo son del artículo Castro and Che's foiled (and forgotten) 9 /11 de Humberto Fontova y del libro The Nuclear Deception: Khruschev and the Cuban Missile Crisis, de Servando González. El artículo de Humberto Fontova puede leerse en idioma español, gracias a la traducción de Ernesto Hernández Busto, en:

    El 3 de octubre de 1962 llegó a Nueva York Roberto Santiesteban Casanova, un hombre de confianza de los Castro, que era experto en técnicas terroristas que se había graduado en una escuela secreta de terrorismo ubicada no lejos de la ciudad de La Habana; Santiesteban llegaba con fachada de attaché para ocupar un cargo menor en la Misión Diplomática de Cuba en Naciones Unidas. Santiesteban tan pronto llegó a Nueva York se entrevistó con parte del equipo con el que llevaría a cabo el siniestro plan terrorista; algunos de los integrantes con los que se reunió fueron los también attachés Castristas José Gómez Abad y su esposa lsa Monero Maldonado, así como un cubano dueño de una joyería llamado José García Orellana.

    Según los resultados de búsqueda que he hecho en Internet en sitios oficialistas Castristas y sitios afines, José Gómez Abad (hijo del guerrillero comunista español José Gómez Galloso, ¨López¨, quien fue muerto mediante garrote vil en España el 6 de noviembre de 1948 por sus acciones guerrilleras) nació en La Habana en 1941 y con 19 años de edad se integró a los Órganos de la Seguridad del Estado de Cuba a los cuales perteneció durante tres décadas. En leemos: 

    ¨En el transcurso de 30 años, hasta su jubilación, trabajando en la Dirección General de Inteligencia (DGI) del Ministerio del Interior de Cuba, ocupó diferentes cargos y responsabilidades entre ellas el de Jefe de Sección, Ayudante Ejecutivo del Viceministro Primero y Jefe de la DGI.¨

    (José Gómez Abad poco antes de morir; foto tomada durante un viaje que hizo a España)
    .Luego inferimos sin equivocarnos de que José Gómez Abad era miembro de la Seguridad Cubana cuando fue detenido en Nueva York por participar en el mencionado plan terrorista.

    El plan terrorista Castrista consistía en colocar doce dispositivos incendiarios y 500 kilogramos del explosivo TNT en las tiendas Macy's, Gimbels y Bloomingdales, y en la Estación Central de Ferrocarriles de Manhattan. En la página 154 del mencionado libro de Servando González se añaden otros objetivos: la Estatua de la Libertad, la Terminal de ómnibus de la calle 42 y refinerías en la ribera oeste del Hudson, en Nueva Jersey. Las explosiones debían efectuarse durante el ¨Viernes Negro¨ del año 1962.

    El plan incluía muchas personas y ese fue su ¨ talón de Aquiles¨ por el cual el FBI pudo conocer de dicho plan y neutralizarlo. El FBI estimaba que hasta 30 personas podrían formar parte del complot, pero Roberto Santiesteban Casanova, José Gómez Abad y su esposa Elsa Monero Maldonado, una ex guerrillera de la lucha contra el régimen de Fulgencio Batista que había pertenecido al III Frente Oriental ¨Mario Muñoz Monroy¨ eran los tres más importantes. Otros complotados – según Humberto Fontova-eran miembros del capítulo en Nueva York del Comité "Fair Game for Cuba" o ¨Trato Justo para Cuba¨; organización que se haría muy famosa después que al ser detenido Lee Harvey Oswald por el asesinato del Presidente John F. Kennedy se les ocuparon algunos volantes de esa organización.

    El 17 de noviembre de 1962 Santiesteban fue capturado después de correr intentando escapar mientras masticaba y se tragaba algunos papelesen el suelo intentó sacar su pistola cuando era sometido por los agentes del FBI. José y Elsa fueron arrestados sin resistencia al salir de su apartamento. 

     Los terroristas José y Elsa se acogieron a su inmunidad diplomática y pese a ellos haber reclutado a tres persona en los EE.UU. para ese plan, incluyendo entre ellos a una mujer norteamericana, fueron liberados; el caso de Santiesteban fue un poco más complicado pues no había en el momento de su detención aún presentado sus papeles diplomáticos. Roberto Santiesteban Casanova estuvo preso hasta que U Thantel entonces Secretario General de la ONU, intervino para que se le diera la inmunidad diplomática, por lo cual fue liberado con 250 000 dólares de fianza y se le permitió salir de los EE.UU. sin ser llevado a la justicia. De Roberto Santiesteban Casanova se supo que estaba en República Dominicana durante la revuelta de abril de 1965 cooperando con el lado rebelde. Se comprobó de que era un miembro de la Dirección General de la Inteligencia Castrista y de su sistema de sabotaje.

    El Procurador General de los EE.UU. expresó que ese plan estaba "aimed at the heart of the internal security of the United States of America.", o sea, "dirigido al corazón de la seguridad interna de los Estados Unidos de América."

    Nota del Bloguista de Baracutey Cubano

    En el libro  Foreign Consular Offices in the United States aparece  la tal Margarita Quintana como Miss Jacoba Margarita  Quintana  Quintana como Vice cónsul para Michigan, reconocida desde  el 16 de mayo de 1957; es decir:  cuando aún en Cuba  gobernaba Fulgencio Batista y Zaldivar.

    ENERO 10, 2011



    En los primeros meses de 1959, el gobierno de Castro envió a Detroit, en un cambio de su consulado a la bella Margarita Quintana, de amplia experiencia diplomática. Además de cónsul, trabajaba para los servicios secretos de Castro,y se relacionó con el ingeniero norteamericano Robert Braun, especialista en el manejo de instrumentos electrónicos, dueño de un laboratorio que suministraba equipos especiales a la Comisión de Energía Atómica de los Estados Unidos.

    En plena luna de miel, Margarita y Braun desaparecieron de los Estados Unidos y se domiciliaron en Cuba, dejando preparadas para su envió a La Habana, todas sus pertenencias que sumaban 25 cajas y paquetes. En mayo y junio de 1960, el equipaje fue llevado al consulado cubano en West Palm Beach para ser reembarcado hacia Cuba, como rezaba en las franquicias. Durante la carga, uno de los bultos llamó la atención de los oficiales aduaneros e intervino el FBI que retuvo el equipaje pese a las airadas protestas del cónsul y de la cancillería cubana.

    Tras una larga batalla judicial con los representantes cubanos, el 9 de agosto de 1961 se obtuvo la orden legal para realizar la inspección (Era un pequeño laboratorio atómico! Se ocuparon métodos de identificación semejantes a los usados por los Estados Unidos para reconocer aviones en pleno vuelo, un sistema de control para bombarderos B-52, instrumentos para reconocimientos aéreos y planos de equipos clasificados. Más sorprendente fue el hallazgo de documentos que relacionaban a la pareja con el espía de secretos relacionados con la energía nuclear Klaus Fuchs, así como las pruebas de que Braun sostenía contactos regulares en Detroit con el agregado comercial soviético, a través de su esposa.

    El rompecabezas fue armándose y en febrero de 1964, se conoció del emplazamiento de bases subterráneas en la provincia de Pinar del Río, supervisadas por el director del programa electrónico de Castro, nada menos que el ingeniero Braun, quien en cooperación con un equipo de ingenieros cubanos y soviéticos, donde figuraba Nicolás Yepylev, laboraba en la instalación de equipos electrónicos muy adelantados para una estación de rastreo de satélites en Cuba. La agencia de noticias francesa France Press, ofrecía la noticia de que Cuba se había convertido en una potencia electrónica equipada para vigilar toda la navegación marítima y aérea del Caribe y la costa oriental de los Estados Unidos.

    Los designios de Castro de reclamar las islas del Cisne, localizadas a mitad de camino entre Cuba y Honduras, no fructificarían en el continente y sólo dejarían recelo, incluso entre los aliados castristas en ese país. Castro quería obtener las Islas del Cisne y también Puerto Cortés, en Honduras; este último, utilizado históricamente por negociantes y aventureros cubanos para contrabandear cargamentos de madera y más tarde, transformado por Castro en un paraje para infiltrar guerrilleros, agentes y alijos de armas, aprovechándose de los cargueros que navegaban por el golfo de Honduras hasta Belice.

    El propio presidente hondureño, Villeda Morales, realizaría en enero de 1961 una locución angustiada ante las amenazas de Castro "yo confieso que somos incapaces de dominar la influencia castrista en Honduras por nuestros propios medios. No podemos derrotarla solos ni puede hacerlo ningún otro país centroamericano. Necesitamos un esfuerzo colectivo. Los países deben abandonar su actitud pasiva".

    Ya para 1963, Castro está experimentando reveses en sus esfuerz­os por subvertir con guerrillas la América Latina, agravados por su sorda disputa con varios partidos comunistas. Sin penas ni glorias, comienzan a languidecer los grupos trotskis­tas peruanos de Hugo Blanco, los colombianos de Pedro Antonio Marín, las huestes brasileñas de Francisco Juliao y el MIR venezolano.


    Cita en Caracas de radicales de izquierda para desestabilizar Iberoamérica. Nuevos detalles de la cumbre en Caracas para desestabilizar América Latina

    Oct 21, 2019

    “Es una brisita bolivariana que llega a algunos países”: Cabello sobre manifestaciones en Chile


    Nuevos detalles de la cumbre en Caracas para desestabilizar América Latina

    El diario ABC dio a conocer el contenido de un informe elaborado por fuentes de inteligencia venezolanas tras el encuentro mantenidos entre altos funcionarios chavistas y grupos paramilitares y políticos de Iberoamérica. “Están totalmente decididos a desestabilizar toda” la región, advirtió Iván Simonovis, ex preso político del régimen
    Según el informe de la inteligencia venezolana, Diosdado Cabello participó de la cumbre en Caracas (REUTERS/Manaure Quintero)

    El gobierno interino de Juan Guaidó y gran parte de la comunidad internacional han denunciado los intereses y vínculos del régimen de Nicolás Maduro con las recientes protestas en diferentes países de la región, como Ecuador, Chile y Colombia. Los opositores a la dictadura venezolana denunciaron, incluso, que este mes se llevó a cabo una cumbre entre altos mandos del chavismo y representantes de grupo paramilitares y políticos de Iberoamérica.

    El encuentro tuvo como objetivo coordinar planes para “causar desestabilización en la región”, de acuerdo a lo señalado por un informe elaborado por fuentes de inteligencia venezolanas al que tuvo acceso el diario español ABC .

    La cumbre tuvo lugar en una importante base militar en Caracas. Por parte del régimen de Maduro participaron el número dos del chavismo y presidente de la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente, Diosdado Cabello; su hermano José David Cabello; la vicepresidenta Delcy Rodríguez; su hermano, Jorge Rodríguez; el jefe de la Dirección General de Contrainteligencia Militar (Dgcim), Iván Hernández Dala, y el comisario mayor Carlos Calderón Chirinos, entre otros.

    Según el informe, los invitados fueron: el venezolano Valentín Santana, líder de la agrupación venezolana Colectivo La Piedrita, una de las más violentas del país; José Subero, dirigente del Colectivo Trabaja con VS; el chileno Héctor Llaitul, líder de la Coordinadora Arauco-Malleco, y el colombiano Hernán D. Velásquez Saldarriaga, alias «El Paisa Montero», líder del grupo disidente de las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC).

    “El objetivo de la reunión era potenciar algunas de las protestas que ya existían, y cambiar el foco de interés en el continente para que la atención deje de estar puesta en Venezuela”, explicó al diario español Iván Simonovis, ex jefe de la policía de Caracas, quien el pasado mes de junio escapó de su arresto domiciliario tras 15 años en prisión.

    El opositor venezolano, quien hoy en día oficia como nexo entre el gobierno interino de Guaidó y las agencias de seguridad de Estados Unidos, como la CIA y la DEA, advirtió que “estos grupos están totalmente decididos a desestabilizar toda América Latina”.

    El informe elaborado por la inteligencia venezolana asegura que durante la cumbre se acordó “un nuevo plan de entrenamiento para los colectivos”. Los encargados de esa tarea “serán los miembros de las FARC, quienes les impartirán clases por quince días en la escuela de estudios de inteligencia”.

    Consultado por ABC, Santana, líder del Colectivo La Piedrita, dijo que no asistió a “ningún encuentra que pretenda desestabilizar la región”. No obstante, aclaró: “Los contactos que mantenemos todos los colectivos es el resultado de un congreso internacional que fue organizado por el comandante Hugo Chávez, en donde conocimos y analizamos la situación y futuro de los países hermanos”.

    Iván Simonovis advirtió que los grupos auspiciados por el chavismo están dispuestos a desestabilizar América Latina

    El líder del grupo paramilitar venezolano más violento del país sostuvo que su agrupación promueve una revolución pacífica, “pero armada”: “Los colectivos no vamos a dudar en utilizar las armas para defender esta revolución”.

    Si bien reconoció que no puede confirmar que la cumbre desarrollada en Caracas sea la causa de las violentas protestas en Chile y Ecuador, Simonovis consideró que, “visto que la izquierda perdía terreno en América Latina en elecciones recientes, el régimen decidió dar apoyo para que esa izquierda perviva en modo de lucha política, aprovechando la protesta”.

    “Cabe recordar que al régimen de Maduro le conviene este descontento y las protestas en otros países. Cuando más se hable de otros sitios de América Latina menos se habla del régimen”, subrayó.

    El TIAR analizará la influencia de la dictadura en las protestas

    Este martes el presidente interino de Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, anunció que los países del Tratado Interamericano de Asistencia Recíproca (TIAR) analizarán la influencia del chavismo en las recientes manifestaciones en la región.

    “La dictadura destruyó la productividad de Venezuela. Inyectó el país de capitales sucios de la corrupción. Ahora se han detectado casos de desestabilización en América Latina. Hay una senda violenta en distintos países”, manifestó Guaidó desde la Asamblea Nacional (AN), donde este martes mantuvo un encuentro con parlamentarios de España, Argentina y Costa Rica.

    “Se han visto células, pequeñas, infiltradas en las protestas a nivel latinoamericano financiadas por Maduro. Células entrenadas para la desestabilización (...) En la reunión del órgano de consulta del TIAR vamos a compartir inteligencia”, advirtió el líder opositor.

    El encuentro entre los 19 países que activaron el TIAR contra Maduro se llevará a cabo el próximo martes 3 de diciembre en Bogotá.

    Desde el chavismo, alimentando las especulaciones sobre su incitación a las protestas, en más de una oportunidad se refirieron a una “brisa” bolivariana. “Lo que está pasando en Perú, en Chile, en Argentina, en Honduras, en Ecuador, es apenas la brisita. Lo que viene ahora es el huracán. Es absolutamente imposible que Colombia se quede como está. Esos países van a reventar porque tiene una sobredosis de neoliberalismo y eso no lo aguanta nadie”, esbozó el mes pasado Diosdado Cabello.

    Cita en Caracas de radicales de izquierda para desestabilizar Iberoamérica

    El encuentro en la residencia de Maduro, este mes, analizó cómo alentar la agitación en las calles

    Por D. Alandete/ O. Navas/A. Rodríguez

    Los opositores al régimen de Nicolás Maduro han denunciado que este mes se produjo en una importante base militar de Caracas una reunión con altos mandos del chavismo y representantes de grupos paramilitares y políticos de Iberoamérica para coordinar planes con el objetivo de «causar desestabilización en la región», según informe elaborado con fuentes de la inteligencia venezolana al que ha tenido acceso ABC.

    Por parte del régimen venezolano acudieron el número dos, Diosdado Cabello; su hermano José David Cabello; la vicepresidenta Delcy Rodríguez; su hermano, Jorge Rodríguez; el jefe de la Dirección General de Contrainteligencia Militar (Dgcim), Iván Hernández Dala, y el comisario mayor Carlos Calderon Chirinos, entre otros.

    Los invitados, según ese informe, fueron, entre otros, el venezolano Valentín Santana, líder de la agrupación venezolana Colectivo La Piedrita, una de las mejor armadas y más violentas de Venezuela; el también venezolano José Subero, dirigente del Colectivo Trabaja con VS; el chileno Héctor Llaitul, líder de la Coordinadora Arauco-Malleco, y el colombiano Hernán D. Velásquez Saldarriaga, alias «El Paisa Montero», líder del grupo disidente de las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC).

    Según explica a ABC Iván Simonovis, enlace de Juan Guaidó con las agencias de seguridad norteamericanas, incluidas la CIA y la antidroga DEA, «el objetivo de la reunión era potenciar algunas de las protestas que ya existían, y cambiar el foco de interés en el continente para que la atención deje de estar puesta en Venezuela. Esto demuestra de nuevo el carácter criminal del régimen de Nicolás Maduro. Estos grupos están totalmente decididos a desestabilizar toda América Latina». El diario «El Nuevo Herald» fue el primero en informar de esta reunión.

    Según el mencionado informe, en esa reunión se acordó «un nuevo plan de entrenamiento para los colectivos [venezolanos], a tal efecto los encargados de esa tarea serán miembros de las FARC, quienes les impartirán clases por quince días en la escuela de estudios de inteligencia». Los colectivos son grupos paramilitares armados que actúan en coordinación y apoyo al régimen en Venezuela.

    La seguridad de los asistentes al encuentro, mantenido a puerta cerrada, corrió a cargo de la Casa Militar, encargada de proteger a Maduro. Fuerte Tiuna es sede, entre otros, del Ministerio para la Defensa, la Comandancia General del Ejército, el Círculo Militar de Caracas, el Batallón Bolívar y la residencia oficial de la vicepresidenta. El informe añade que en el encuentro «se acordó impartir clases en materia de insurgencia a los grupos milicianos y deberán cumplir labores fuera del territorio venezolano, objetivo: causar desestabilización en la región». Una de las decisiones de los reunidos, según esas fuentes de inteligencia, fue que el chileno Llaitul «dará también un foro sobre la guerra política en el continente donde asistirán diferentes frentes socialistas que en la actualidad son parte de un programa denominado 1x100 que se aplica en sus comunidades y barrios yendo casa por casa con un discurso de adoctrinamiento».

    La reunión fue convocada para este mismo mes tras las decisiones de la última cumbre del Foro de Sao Paulo, que tuvo lugar en Caracas del 25 al 28 de julio de 2019 y en el que el presidente del régimen cubano, Miguel Díaz Canel, proclamó que «Venezuela es la primera trinchera de la lucha antiimperialista». Según el informe al que ha tenido acceso ABC, «en dicha reunión se hizo referencia al compromiso estratégico adquirido en el Foro de Sao Paulo, se acordaron diferentes puntos y planes a seguir por la izquierda socialista en la defensa de las naciones agrupadas en el mencionado foro».

    Según explica a ABC Simonovis, «visto que la izquierda perdía terreno en América Latina en elecciones recientes, el régimen decidió dar un apoyo para que esa izquierda perviva en modo de lucha política, aprovechando la protesta». Mantiene que no tiene datos de que esa reunión sea la causa del descontento social en Ecuador o Chile, pero sí cree que puede aprovecharse de las protestas para desestabilizar el continente, especialmente en Colombia, donde los disturbios estallaron tras la reunión.

    «Cabe recordar que al régimen de Maduro le conviene este descontento y las protestas en otros países. Cuando más se hable de otros sitios de América Latina menos se habla del régimen, que así puede coger aire, ya que se encuentra en situación crítica», añade Simonovis.

    Preguntado por esta reunión, uno de los integrantes, Santana, el líder del Colectivo La Piedrita, aseguró a ABC que «no he asistido a ningún encuentro que pretenda desestabilizar la región». Sin embargo, Santana dijo a continuación que los colectivos sociales de Latinoamérica tienen comunicación constante, a través de las cuales analizan continuamente la situación política de cada uno de los países y su impacto en la región. «Los contactos que mantenemos todos los colectivos es el resultado de un congreso internacional que fue organizado por el comandante Hugo Chávez, en donde conocimos y analizamos la situación y futuro de los países hermanos», dijo.

    A su vez el líder de La Piedrita dijo que este y los demás colectivos en Venezuela promueven la paz pero con las armas. «Como decía el comandante Chávez, esta es una revolución pacífica, pero armada y los colectivos no vamos a dudar en utilizar las armas para defender esta revolución. Venezuela es actualmente el país más seguro y pacifico que existe en la región y así se mantendrán, en apoyo al presidente Nicolás Maduro», aseguró.

    Honduras pide renegociar su deuda para enfrentar el cambio climático


    Madrid, 2 dic (EFE).- El presidente de Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernández, pidió este lunes a países y bancos centrales renegociar la deuda de su país para enfrentar el cambio climático y reclamó al resto de los Estados ser 'justos' con los que menos contaminan y que, sin embargo, son los más afectados.

    Hernández hizo este llamamiento en una mesa redonda con presidentes y jefes de Estado celebrada hoy en la Cumbre del Clima (COP25) que tiene lugar en Madrid, tras la renuncia de Chile a organizarla por las protestas sociales que suceden en el país desde hace seis semanas.

    'Vengo con una propuesta, nuestros acreedores y las firmas calificadoras de riesgo saben que Honduras es buen pagador, pero queremos invertir en lo que creemos justo, por eso pedimos una renegociación de la deuda para que con ese alivio se nos permita un espacio fiscal', declaró el mandatario.

    Hernández enumeró los actores involucrados en esta hipótesis: el Banco Mundial, el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo, el Banco Europeo de Inversión y el Centroamericano de Integración, entre otros.

    'En uno o dos años, con 1.000 millones de dólares arreglamos el país y damos certidumbre a la deuda', aseveró.

    Según explicó, este monto iría destinado a 'reforestar zonas de agua que transformarían la agricultura, en temas de educación, en sistemas de agua apoyando a municipios, en represas en el Corredor Seco', entre otros.

    'Miren que le hemos apostado a las energías renovables pero tenemos menos agua', declaró a sus homólogos antes de insistir en que 'esta crisis es un tema de supervivencia'.

    'Hacemos un llamado a países desarrollados a que sean justos y apoyen a los más necesitados y a la humanidad', dijo el líder centroamericano tras recordar que su país es responsable 'del 0.003 por ciento de las emisiones de gases invernadero y uno de los tres países más afectados del mundo por el cambio climático'.

    Estarán hoy en Madrid veinte primeros ministros europeos; los presidentes de Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras y la República Dominicana; el primer ministro de Marruecos, Saadeddine Othmani; el Príncipe Alberto de Mónaco o la presidenta de la Cámara de Representantes de Estados Unidos, Nanci Pelosi.

    Asisten también hoy a la inauguración de la cumbre los responsables de las principales instituciones europeas (Comisión, Consejo Europeo y Parlamento) y los presidentes o primeros ministros de numerosos países africanos y asiáticos.

    Antes de la apertura oficial, el presidente del Gobierno en funciones, Pedro Sánchez, se reunirá con los jefes de Estado y de Gobierno de la UE y con el secretario general de la ONU, António Guterres, y por la tarde lo hará con los responsables de los Gobiernos de América Latina.
