Baixa cobertura vacinal no Brasil colabora para que as condições reapareçam e preocupa as autoridades sanitárias e profissionais da área da saúde

Vacina contra poliomielite , uma das doenças erradicadas, é composta por cinco doses%3A três até seis meses e duas após um ano de idade

O sarampo voltou. O Brasil - que tinha se livrado da infecção desde 2016, de acordo com a Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS) - já registrou 995 casos de pessoas com a condição em Roraima e Amazonas desde o dia 1º de janeiro até 23 de maio. E essa não é a única novidade: doenças erradicadas como poliomielite, rubéola e difteria, todas com vacinas para prevenção disponíveis no Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS), estão voltando com tudo e preocupando as autoridades sanitárias e profissionais de saúde.

A queda na cobertura vacinal no país, que começou a acontecer também em 2016, está contribuindo para que doenças erradicadas ameacem a saúde pública brasileira. O próprio Ministério da Saúde, por meio de comunicado, destacou que essa realidade acende o que chamou de "luz vermelha".

No caso do sarampo, surtos da condição foram identificados este ano no Amazonas, Roraima, Rio Grande do Sul, Rondônia e Rio de Janeiro. Em Manaus, um bebê de sete meses morreu no último dia 28, depois de ter febre, manchas na pele, tosse e coriza.

Além disso, em junho, o Ministério da Saúde alertou sobre o alto risco de retorno da poliomielite em pelo menos 312 cidades brasileiras, por conta da baixa adesão à imunização, com apenas 50% das crianças vacinadas.

A doença, que causou por décadas milhares de casos de paralisia infantil, era considerada erradicada no continente desde 1994 e no país desde 1990. A condição ainda é endêmica em três países - Nigéria, Afeganistão e Paquistão.

Baixa cobertura vacinal prevê volta de doenças erradicadas

Em todo território nacional a aplicação das vacinas do calendário adulto se mostrou abaixo da meta elaborada pelo Ministério da Saúde – incluindo a dose que protege contra o sarampo.

Entre as crianças, a situação não é muito diferente. Em 2017, apenas a BCG, que protege contra a tuberculose e é aplicada ainda na maternidade, atingia a meta de 90% de imunização.

Diante deste cenário, a Sociedade Brasileira de Imunizações (Sbim) também faz o alerta sobre a importância da vacinação, e defende uma taxa de imunização de 95% do público-alvo para cada tipo de vacina.

Confira as principais doenças que ensaiam um retorno ao Brasil caso as taxas de vacinação não sejam ampliadas.

Sarampo

Em 2017, países vizinhos sofreram com surtos de sarampo, principalmente a Venezuela, que deixou de imunizar a população por questões políticas e econômicas. O governo brasileiro chegou a alertar sobre o risco da doença e reforçou o aviso sobre a importância de tomar a tríplice viral, vacina que protege contra a infecção e outras duas doenças: caxumba e rubéola.

Oferecida gratuitamente pelo Programa Nacional de Imunizações, a proteção deve ocorrer na infância, e em duas doses: com 12 e 15 meses. Na segunda dose, a vacina também protege contra a varicela, infecção viral que causa a catapora.

No entanto, a segunda dose da vacina não atinge a meta de 95% de cobertura vacinal desde 2012.

Essa é uma doença infecciosa aguda, de natureza viral, grave, transmissível e extremamente contagiosa. Complicações infecciosas contribuem para a gravidade do quadro, particularmente em crianças desnutridas e menores de um 1 ano de idade.

Os sintomas incluem febre alta acima de 38,5°C; erupções na pele; tosse; coriza; conjuntivite; e manchas brancas que aparecem na mucosa bucal, conhecidas como sinais de Koplik e que antecedem de um a dois dias antes do aparecimento da erupção cutânea.

A transmissão do sarampo acontece de quatro a seis dias antes e até quatro dias após o aparecimento do exantema (erupção cutânea). O período de maior transmissibilidade ocorre dois dias antes e dois dias após o início da erupção cutânea.

Poliomielite

De acordo com relatório divulgado pelo Ministério da Saúde, todos os estados brasileiros possuem municípios que são considerados lugares de risco, com exceção apenas de Rondônia, Espírito Santo e do Distrito Federal.

Só em São Paulo, 44 cidades estão em alerta da doença. Municípios da Bahia e do Maranhão são os que menos imunizaram seus moradores nos últimos anos, com apenas 15% de cobertura vacinal.

A doença é prevenida por duas vacinas: a Vacina Oral Poliomielite (VOP), administrada oralmente aos 2,4 e 6 meses de vida, com reforços entre 15 e 18 meses e entre 4 e 5 anos; e a Vacina Inativada Poliomielite (VIP), que é injetada aos 15 meses e outra aos 4 anos de idade.

Contudo, das vacinas que as crianças de dois e quatro meses devem receber, a de pólio é a única que não ultrapassa 85% de vacinados nas duas doses, conforme dados do Datasus.

Causada por um vírus que vive no intestino, o poliovírus, a poliomielite geralmente atinge crianças com menos de 4 anos de idade, mas também pode contaminar adultos.

A maior parte das infecções apresenta poucos sintomas e há semelhanças com as infecções respiratórias como febre e dor de garganta, além das gastrointestinais, náusea, vômito e prisão de ventre.

Cerca de 1% dos infectados pelo vírus pode desenvolver a forma paralítica da doença, que pode causar sequelas permanentes, insuficiência respiratória e, em alguns casos, levar à morte.

Difteria

Em abril, a OMS também notificou surtos na Venezuela e no Haiti de difteria, que causa dificuldade de respirar. Na Venezuela, 142 pessoas já morreram da doença desde 2016. No Brasil, seis casos suspeitos da doença relatados neste ano aguardam confirmação.

Doença transmissível aguda causada por bacilo que frequentemente se aloja nas amígdalas, na faringe, na laringe, no nariz e, ocasionalmente, em outras mucosas e na pele. A presença de placas branco-acinzentadas, aderentes, que se instalam nas amígdalas e invadem estruturas vizinhas é a manifestação clínica típica da difteria.

A transmissão acontece ao falar, tossir, espirrar ou por lesões na pele. Portanto, pelo contato direto com a pessoa doente. O período de incubação da difteria é, em geral, de um a seis dias, podendo ser mais longo. Já o período de transmissibilidade dura, em média, até duas semanas após o início dos sintomas.

Rubéola

Por ser uma doença prevenida com a mesma vacina que protege contra o sarampo, a tríplice viral, a rubéola também pode voltar a atingir os brasileiros.

A doença aguda, de alta contagiosidade, é transmitida pelo vírus do gênero Rubivirus. No campo das doenças infectocontagiosas, a importância epidemiológica da rubéola está associada à síndrome da rubéola congênita, que atinge o feto ou o recém-nascido cujas mães se infectaram durante a gestação.

A infecção na gravidez acarreta inúmeras complicações para a mãe, como aborto e natimorto (feto expulso morto) e para os recém-nascidos, como surdez, malformações cardíacas e lesões oculares.

Os sintomas da rubéola, que também é uma das doenças erradicadas no Brasil, incluem febre baixa e inchaço dos nódulos linfáticos, acompanhados de exantema. A transmissão acontece de pessoa para pessoa, por meio das secreções expelidas pelo doente ao tossir, respirar, falar ou respirar.

          Polaris shortlist predictions, Hubert Lenoir, Lydia Képinski      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

There has only ever been one francophone record to win the Polaris Music Prize: Karkwa’s Les Chemins de Verre, in 2010. It’s now been seven years since a francophone record has made the Polaris Music Prize shortlist, when Galaxie’s Tigre et diesel made the cut in 2011. Not even Coeur de Pirate has managed to break through, despite increasingly solid records and a large live draw outside of Quebec. Galaxie put out a pretty solid new record last year, but it didn’t land on the Polaris long list, announced last month. However, seven other francophone records did (as well as an instrumental record by a francophone, Jean-Michel Blais). Of those, I think Hubert Lenoir’s debut album is likely to shortlist, and I would love it if Lydia Képinski would as well.


The shortlist will be announced Tuesday, July 17.


I fully expect Daniel Caesar, Jeremy Dutcher, Lenoir, U.S. Girls and Weaves to shortlist. I’d place money on it. Usually 50% of the list is a relatively easy pick; the rest is a crapshoot.


I think it’s likely that Bonjay, Zaki Ibrahim, Pierre Kwenders and Partner will also shortlist, along with one record from the acoustic/songwriter contingent that will be either the Weather Station, Donovan Woods, or Jennifer Castle.


I’m basing these predictions on general chatter among Polaris jurors, as well as demographics and past history of voting patterns; there’s nothing scientific going on here. Sometimes the silent majority surprises me and a more mainstream pick makes the list: this year that would be either Alvvaysor Gord Downie. Less likely silent majority picks would be Arcade Fire, Bahamas or Sloan.


I would love to be pleasantly surprised and see Cadence Weapon, Képinski or Terra Lightfootmake the shortlist. There’s also an extremely long shot that we might be talking about Vancouver hip-hop crew the Snotty Nose Rez Kids this time next week.


Anyway, back to the francophones. Among the long listed artists, I’ve been a fan of Kwenders for a while (I prefer his debut to this new one, though I’m in the minority there), and both the rapper Loud and Mélissa Laveaux (a Haitian-Canadian now living in Paris) are impressive. But these two debut records really blew me away–eventually, mind you, as they’re both growers. Give them your time.


These reviews will appear in the Waterloo Region Record on Friday July 13.


Hubert Lenoir – Darlène (Simone)



This 23-year-old put his punk band on hold to make a genre-bending pop album, based on a new novel by his friend Noémie D. Leclerc, where the first five tracks jump from jazz piano to ’70s glam to Black Sabbath to gospel-inspired pop to Fleetwood Mac, with plenty of tenor saxophone all over the arrangements, which occasionally nod to Joe Jackson’s 1984 album Body and Soul. It’s totally bonkers in a way that only the Québecois can pull off—or maybe the Flaming Lips, on a good day. Is it a retro record? Absolutely, but it’s also audacious in its scope, and Lenoir has the songwriting chops, the production values, plenty of earworms and the pure vocal charisma to pull it all off. I listened to this record for months before I sought out any video—and it turns out this androgynous singer has major starpower as well. And yes, francophobes, there is one song in English (“Wild and Free”), so you have no excuse not to start there and then dive deeper.





Stream: “Fille de personne II,” “Ton hotel,” “J-C”



Lydia Képinski – Premier juin (independent)


This 24-year-old Montrealer won the $10,000 Francouvertes prize last year for a new Quebec artist. Listening to her debut, it’s more than obvious why: she’s a fully-formed songwriter whose melodies verve in unusual directions, while her music rarely subscribes to conventional chord progressions and her arrangements combine the sparseness of indie-rock solo performers with lush arrangements and rich electronics—both of which are used sparingly. The focus is on Képinski’s remarkably nuanced and assured vocals. All of this displays not just remarkable talent, but a self-assuredness and confidence rarely heard on a debut record. This artist arrives as a complete package, sounding like she’s already conquered the world, even if the world doesn’t quite know it yet.

WASHINGTON – The United States Department of State authorized on Monday the voluntary evacuation of all non-emergency government employees stationed in Haiti and their families due to widespread protests in the country. The US government’s advisory comes after protests erupted in Haiti on Friday after the government decided to hike fuel prices by 37-50 percent, a decision which has since been reversed, but which has failed to quell the protests. “The US government authorized the voluntary departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel and their families.

          Haití: Siguen protestas pese a freno a alza del combustible      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Tras el anuncio sobre el incremento del combustible realizado el pasado viernes 6 de julio en Haití, se desató una escalada violenta en protesta contra dicha medida. Previamente ya había sido advertido que la entrada en vigor de esta política impulsada por el Fondo Monetario Internacional, traería consigo el fuerte descontento de la población, sin embargo, el presidente Jovenel Moïse siguió adelante con su política.

El incremento económico tenía como plan inicial el aumento en un 49% del precio de la gasolina; un 40% el gasóleo y más de 50% el queroseno (utilizado por la mayoría de los haitianos para alumbrar sus casas, ya que no cuentan con electricidad). Esto trajo como consecuencia el enardecimiento de la población, pues el organismo multilateral exigen a la empobrecida nación llevar adelante medidas de austeridad con el fin de incrementar la recaudación del Gobierno para pagar los servicios de deuda.

Tras la respuesta adversa, el gobierno de Moïse optó por retractar el incremento económico y pedir la vuelta a la calma de la población. Sin embargo, aun este lunes 9 de julio se siguen llevando a cabo protestas en el país haitiano debido a que esta acción del gobierno sirvió como un detonante que dejó salir a la luz el acumulado descontento que ya venía presentando la población con respecto a la gestión de gobierno, según lo explico Henry Boisrolin en su reporte para Resumen Latinoamericano.

“El último detonante ha sido el anuncio del Gobierno de un aumento brutal en el precio de los combustibles. (Es necesario aclarar que los principales combustibles utilizados por el pueblo para cocinar, son el carbón y el kerosene, porque no existe suministro de gas, salvo para las clases acomodadas y la élite dominante). Este aumento había sido anunciado previamente, y las organizaciones populares habían advertido que si lo cumplían, iba a desatarse una insurrección popular. Es lo que está sucediendo ahora”.

SANTO DOMINGO. La Dirección General de Migración (DGM) detuvo a 553 extranjeros en diferentes localidades del Distrito Nacional, el Gran Santo Domingo y las provincias María Trinidad Sánchez y La Romana.

Por instrucciones del director de la institución, teniente general retirado Máximo William Muñoz Delgado, fue desplegado un personal integrado por inspectores y agentes de la DGM, con el apoyo de efectivos militares del Ejército y la Armada de República Dominicana, en coordinación con el Ministerio Público de las referidas provincias.

Durante la jornada de 48 horas, fueron intervenidos los sectores Alma Rosa, Cancino Adentro, Los Mina y Ensanche Ozama en Santo Domingo Este, Buena Vista I y II, Guaricano, Villa Mella y Punta en Santo Domingo Norte, además de Buenos Aires de Herrera, Las Caobas y Manoguayabo en Santo Domingo Oeste, donde fueron detenidos 108 extranjeros.

De manera simultánea los equipos de interdicción migratoria realizaron operaciones similares en varias comunidades del Distrito Nacional, donde se produjo la detención de 149 extranjeros, además de 152 detenciones en Nagua, y 144 en La Romana.

Luego de la depuración de los detenidos, fueron trasladados a los pasos fronterizos de Elías Piña y Dajabón 338 nacionales haitianos, mientras que otros 04 venezolanos fueron conducidos al Centro de Acogida en Haina, para iniciar su proceso de deportación.

El dispositivo de interdicción migratoria fue llevado a cabo luego de una labor de inteligencia que permitió puntualizar los lugares del país donde hay mayor cantidad de extranjeros en condición migratoria irregular.

La DGM reitera que estos operativos serán realizados en otras provincias del territorio nacional, para continuar con la localización de extranjeros que incurren en violación a las disposiciones de la Ley 285-04.


          Situación haitiana puede agudizar en crisis política por pedido de renuncia de autoridades      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Santo domingo. El presidente de Haití, Jovenel Moïse, anunció anoche que sostuvo una reunión en el Palacio Nacional de Haití con los presidentes del Senado, la Cámara de Diputados y el Consejo Superior de la Magistratura para “analizar los recientes actos de violencia que saquearon la capital y adoptar las medidas apropiadas para enderezar la barra”.

La situación que se inició en Haití el pasado viernes con las protestas en contra del alza de precio de los combustibles podría encaminarse a una crisis política, por la demanda que hacen algunos sectores para que renuncie el primer ministro de ese país, Jack Guy Lafontant, y hasta el propio presidente haitiano.

El grupo de embajadores que componen la Misión de las Naciones Unidas para el Apoyo de la Justicia en Haití (Minujusth) emitió un comunicado de apoyo al Gobierno haitiano y exigió respeto al orden institucional.

En el comunicado expresa “las que las preocupaciones de las personas sobre las dificultades de la vida cotidiana son legítimas, pero nada puede justificar conductas que puedan amenazar la vida de las personas y la seguridad de las propiedades, así como el progreso logrado en los últimos años en términos de estabilidad y seguridad en el progreso democrático en Haití. El Grupo Central condena todos los actos de violencia y alienta a las partes en Haití a actuar con moderación y respetar el orden constitucional”.

Por tal razón, insta a las autoridades nacionales a entablar un diálogo profundo e inclusivo con todos los demás actores claves del país para restablecer la calma y promover la cohesión social.

El grupo de embajadores que conforman la misión de las Naciones Unidas son los de Alemania, Brasil, Canadá, Francia, Estados Unidos, y los representantes de España, la Organización de los Estados Americanos y la Unión Europea.

El grupo aseguró a Haití “su apoyo a la estabilidad del país y al desarrollo sostenible”.

          Mercados de la frontera accionaron sin inconvenientes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

SANTO DOMINGO. La frontera entre República Dominicana y Haití se encuentra hoy en calma a pesar de la huelga y las protestas en el vecino país convocada tras la violencia callejera desatada luego de que el Gobierno anunciara un incremento en el precio de los combustibles que finalmente dejó sin efecto el sábado.

Los tradicionales mercados de los lunes en las provincias dominicanas de Pedernales y Jimaní (suroeste) y Dajabón (noroeste), fronterizos con Haití, se desarrollaron hoy con normalidad, de acuerdo con distintos reportes de autoridades dominicanas.

No obstante, en declaraciones a medios locales, algunos comerciantes expresaron preocupación por la situación en Haití, país con el que la República Dominicana comparte la isla La Española.

Haití vive hoy una jornada de tensa calma en el primero de los días de huelga general convocada por los sindicatos tras la violencia callejera desatada luego de que el Gobierno anunciara un fallido incremento en el precio de los combustibles.

La violencia callejera se desató el viernes pasado en Puerto Príncipe cuando el Gobierno anunció que al día siguiente entraría en vigor un fuerte incremento del precio de los combustibles, como parte del paquete de ajustes que firmó en febrero último con el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI).

Este sábado se recrudecieron las manifestaciones y actos vandálicos y el primer ministro, Jack Guy Lafontant, quien en un primer momento había llamado a la calma, anunciaba horas después de que el aumento quedaba sin efecto “hasta nuevo aviso”.

La situación llevó a las autoridades dominicanas a reforzar la seguridad en la frontera, así como la de su embajada en Haití.

El ministro de Defensa local, Rubén Darío Paulino, enfatizó ayer que el Ejército ha dispuesto el reforzamiento de la frontera, principalmente en las ciudades de Jimaní y Elías Piña (suroeste), las que están más próximas a la capital haitiana.

Por su lado, la Policía Nacional dominicana dispuso hoy la concentración de los agentes del orden de servicio en la zona fronteriza como medida de prevención ante la situación haitiana.

El director de la Policía, Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, dispuso que el número de agentes sea mayor en las ciudades de Pedernales, Jimaní, Elías Piña, Dajabón y Montecristi.

La medida “tiene como objetivo evitar que las violentas protestas en territorio haitiano puedan repercutir en el lado dominicano”, de acuerdo con un comunicado de la institución del orden.

La Policía Nacional “se mantiene alerta en las ciudades fronterizas donde viven nacionales del vecino país, a fin de que el orden y la seguridad ciudadana no sean alterados”, agregó la nota. EFE

SANTO DOMINGO. Residentes en el barrio El Pequeño Haití ubicado entre las avenidas Ramón Matías Mella y Benito Monción de la capital dijeron que el vandalismo que se vive en su país es protagonizado por delincuentes y que la seguridad no existe en esa nación

“Está mal, super mal, ni siquiera los camiones con mercancías pueden pasar a territorio haitiano”, dijo un hombre que es comerciante en la zona y que no quiso identificarse. Expresó que los camiones no pueden pasar a territorio haitiano y que esa situación sume más en la pobreza a ese país.

Algunos de los cuestionados rechazaban ser entrevistados y solo decían que no les importa lo que pase en su país.

Una mujer haitiana que también prefirió el anonimato, se limitó a decir que por la inseguridad y el hambre que se vive en Haití no le gustaría regresar nunca. Dice tener cinco años viviendo en la República Dominicana.

El Pequeño Haití es controlado en su mayoría por haitianos aunque también muchos dominicanos tienen sus negocios operando allí.

Pese a que el gobierno haitiano revocó el aumento en los precios de los combustibles, se han seguido produciendo actos de vandalismo, registrándose la destrucción de viviendas, quema de vehículos y saqueos de establecimientos comerciales en la vecina nación.

PORT-AU-PRINCE (BP) -- About 200 Southern Baptists on mission were trapped in Haiti after violent riots closed airports, sources told Baptist Press, but at least one team plans to return home Monday (July 9).

They are scheduled to return home to the U.S later today," the Bradenton church posted on its Facebook page this morning.

At least three Haitians were killed July 6 in rioting after the government announced it would raise gas prices that were already high. One pastor estimated gas was $5 a gallon before the hike, and that the average wage was about $2 a day for some Haitians. The government dropped plans to raise prices after the violence began, and national news reports indicate normalcy has returned to some parts of the capital city.

James Jenkins, church planting director of the Louisiana Baptist Convention, rode out the violence while housed at the Croix-des-Bouquets (Flower of the Cross) mission house in Port-au-Prince with 35 mission members from Louisiana. He estimated a total of 120 Southern Baptists were retained at the site, including teams from Alabama and Georgia.

"We're fine. Looks like the gunfire and smoke … have dissipated," Jenkins said today. "I'm understanding at least one team of people left here and went to the airport. We should be able to go to the airport tomorrow."

The Louisiana team composed of several churches arrived in Haiti July 5, just a day before violence erupted in response to spiking gas prices.

"This happened basically on the second day we were here," Jenkins said. Mission team members who had split into three group to conduct pastor training, Vacation Bible School and construction outreaches were summoned back to Croix-des-Bouquets.

"For two days (afterwards) I would say it was tense," Jenkins told BP. "We were blessed that this started to occur when we had come back to the compound that first night. We were not able to leave the compound. There was a team that tried" but turned around when they heard gunfire.

Gunfire was coming "from any direction" at the height of the violence, Jenkins said. "They were burning tires, explosions going on," and mission teams realized the importance of following government contingency plans for evacuation and safety.

"It just was a tough situation," he said. "We see light at the end of the tunnel."

Georgia pastor Jason Webb is lodged with a 22-member mission team about 55 miles from Port-au-Prince at Life Connection Mission (LCM) in Montrouis. Webb, pastor of Mt. Olivet Baptist Church in Hartwell, Ga., has reserved a flight to return home Friday, he told BP today.

"There are protests scheduled for today and tomorrow, and hopefully by Friday the protests will be over and we'll be able to have safe passage to Port-au-Prince," Webb said. "That's our hope."

Webb and his team arrived in Haiti June 30 for mission outreaches including a medical clinic, food distribution, VBS and construction work, and originally planned to return home July 7.

"They (LCM) have been very accommodating to us in allowing us to extend our trip. Everyone's in good spirits. We have plenty of food and water. We feel safe and secure where we are," Webb said. "We miss our homes. We miss our families. But our main objective is to remain safe."

He could hear gas cans exploding Saturday, he told BP, and encountered a road block when the team ventured onto the street after Sunday worship.

"We went to a convenience store and had ice cream," he said. "We encountered a roadblock but it was not manned, so we were able to get through quite easily. We're OK."

Chris Watson, senior pastor of GracePointe Church in Douglas, Ga., has received a good report from his 36-member mission team on the island.

"They are doing well," Watson told BP. "They are in the city of Léogâne, which is about an hour away from Port-au-Prince. They were supposed to return Saturday, but obviously those plans changed. They have been in good spirits and have had adequate resources."

Watson expects the group to return home no later than Wednesday, he said. The mission team has conducted VBS, evangelism, community service and a dental clinic.

"They're still sharing the Gospel with those they've been working with all week," Watson said. "They're actually staying at a Baptists for Haiti home" in an outreach the church established three years ago. "They've made the most of their time for the Kingdom," Watson said of the team.


          Haiti vive segundo dia de greve nos transportes após protestos      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

O Haiti viveu nesta terça-feira (10) o segundo e último dia da greve nos transportes convocada pelos sindicatos após os violentos protestos do fim de semana pelo aumento nos preços dos combustíveis, medida que o governo tornou sem efeito pouco depois do anúncio.

Diferentemente de ontem (9), hoje foi observado um pouco mais de fluxo de veículos e pessoas nas ruas, enquanto as prefeituras das zonas metropolitanas tratam de limpar as ruas nas quais os manifestantes jogaram lixo e queimaram pneus durante os protestos, nos quais também houve saques e incêndio de imóveis comerciais.

As pessoas tentam retomar, como podem, suas atividades cotidianas, e nas ruas é observada a presença de policiais.

No entanto, setores da oposição continuam reivindicando a renúncia do primeiro-ministro, Jack Guy Lafontant, que também é exigida pela cúpula empresarial haitiana.

O presidente da Câmara de Deputados, Gary Bodeau, afirmou hoje no Twitter que tanto ele como o presidente do Senado, Joseph Lambert, pediram ontem no Parlamento uma mudança de governo mais inclusiva e, por isso, o futuro de Lafontant é incerto.

Os atos de violência começaram na sexta-feira, quando o governo disse que no dia seguinte entrariam em vigor os novos preços dos combustíveis, que refletiam aumentos entre 37% e 50%.

O presidente do país, Jovenel Moise, reuniu-se ontem com os líderes do Parlamento (bicameral) para "analisar" os atos de violência ocorridos na nação nos últimos três dias.

A reunião no Palácio Nacional foi realizada sem a presença do primeiro-ministro, Jack Gay Lafontant.

Moise disse ontem à noite, em mensagem no Twitter, que convocou ao seu escritório os presidentes do Senado e da Câmara dos Deputados, bem como o presidente da Suprema Corte, Jules Cantave.

O presidente acrescentou que discutiria com eles as medidas que seriam adotadas para "consertar" a situação, mas o governo não ofereceu detalhes sobre os resultados do encontro.

Horas antes, Lafonfant se reuniu com os ministros, mas não houve acordo.

Enquanto isso, o Fórum Econômico do Setor Privado emitiu um comunicado no qual recomendou que Moise solicite a Lafontant que apresente a renúncia "sem demora", para oferecer uma saída ao estancamento político atual.

          9 natural disasters that took the lives of hundreds of thousands      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Haiti 2010 earthquakeGetty

  • Natural disasters have taken the lives of millions of people throughout history.
  • China is home to some of the deadliest natural disasters of all time.
  • The 2004 tsunami in Indonesia killed 227,898 people.

Natural disasters claim the lives of thousands of people in the world every year.

It's hard to say which natural disaster is the most deadly. Hurricanes, tsunamis, and earthquakes each have their own classifications, but there is no denying that they all cause major destruction, and take the lives of many. 

Here's a look at some of the deadliest natural disasters that have taken the lives of thousands.

China's Huang He floods — Millions of deaths

GettyImages/Topical Press Agency

China's second-longest river, the Huang He (Yellow), is the source of the three deadliest floods in history. Flooding in 1887, 1931, and 1938 killed millions of people and caused an incalculable amount of damage. 

The 1931 flood was the most destructive. An area equivalent to the size of England was deluged by flood waters that carried debris, diseases, and destroyed crops.

Severe destruction and chaos prevented officials from determining an exact death toll, but it's estimated that 850,000 to 4,000,000 people were killed by the flooding and its lingering effects. Approximately 80 million people were left homeless. 



1556 Shaanxi province earthquake — 830,000 deaths

The Shaanxi earthquake is believed to be the deadliest quake of all time, killing an estimated 830,000 people. The tremor decimated the Shaanxi and Shanxi provinces of northern China by 60%, leveling mountains, inducing flooding, and starting fires in mere seconds. 

In the months following the quake, survivors began to look for ways to protect themselves from future earthquakes in the area by replacing stone buildings with earthquake-resistant materials like bamboo. 

 



1976 Great Tangshan earthquake — 650,000 deaths

In 1976, the Great Tangshan Earthquake decimated the Chinese coal and industrial city of Tangshan located just 68 miles east of Beijing. Shortly after the initial shock, a 7.1 magnitude aftershock rocked the city and prevented rescue efforts to the original quake site. 

The official death toll totaled 242,000 people, but some believe the disaster could have been responsible for upwards of 650,000 deaths.

WASHINGTON – The United States Department of State authorized on Monday the voluntary evacuation of all non-emergency government employees stationed in Haiti and their families due to widespread protests in the country. The US government’s advisory comes after protests erupted in Haiti on Friday after the government decided to hike fuel prices by 37-50 percent, a decision which has since been reversed, but which has failed to quell the protests. “The US government authorized the voluntary departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel and their families.

AEROPUERTO LAS AMERICAS. Una estampida de familias de poder económico de Haití, así como personas de otras nacionalidades, llega por el Aeropuerto Internacional Isabela “Joaquín Balaguer” huyendo a la situación de violencia que desde hace varios días sacude a esa nación.

Durante todo el día de ayer se produjeron más de 25 vuelos de al menos tres aerolíneas que cubren la ruta Santo Domingo-Puerto Príncipe, de aviones privados y helicópteros de distintas compañías dominicanas contratados por empresarios y allegados al gobierno del presidente Jovenel Moises.
También llegan decenas de turistas y diplomáticos de diferentes embajadas extranjeras representadas en Puerto Príncipe, que están siendo evacuadas, utilizando muchos de ellos a República Dominicana como puente para continuar viaje hacia otros destinos. Entre ellos hay estadounidenses.
Ayer las aerolíneas Century, Sunrise y Helidosa efectuaron alrededor de 25 operaciones de vuelos, trayendo a familias completas de personas que se afirma tienen poder económico en Haití, así como algunos allegados al presidente de ese país, según los informes, así como turistas que se encontraban de visita en esa nación.
Los informes obtenidos por periodistas de este medio indican que muchas de las personas que abandonan a Haití se están quedando en hoteles dominicanos, mientras que otros solo utilizan a Santo Domingo como puente para continuar hacia hacia otros destinos, especialmente Miami y Nueva York.
Se supo que también otras familias haitianas que llegan a través del Aeropuerto Isabela, Joaquín Balaguer, así como también María Montez, de Barahona, están conectando desde el país con naciones de las Antillas Menores, entre ellas Aruba, Curazao, San Martin, Martinica ty Guadalupe.
Los primeros que llegaron al país procedentes desde Puerto Príncipe, huyendo a la situación de violencia que sacude a esa nación, fueron los familiares del ex-presidente Michel Martelly. La familia está compuesta por ocho miembros y su llegada de produjo por el aeropuerto María Montez.

          Gobierno haitiano anuncia investigación sobre disturbios      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


HAITÍ. El gobierno haitiano anunció el martes una investigación para determinar las responsabilidades de los disturbios que provocaron las protestas contra el intento de aumentar los precios de los combustibles, mientras el país retoma la calma tras la violencia que dejó siete muertos y pérdidas materiales millonarias.
El primer ministro Jack Guy Lafontant, quien se encuentra en el centro de las críticas por la inacción de las autoridades durante los disturbios, indicó en un comunicado que la investigación buscará hacer justicia para cada una de las víctimas.
Durante las protestas violentas registradas el viernes y sábado, cientos de hombres, muchos de ellos encapuchados, bloquearon calles, incendiaron decenas de vehículos estacionados en centros comerciales, atacaron hoteles y destruyeron varios supermercados.
Las protestas estallaron cuando Lafontant anunció el 6 de julio incrementos de entre 38% y 51% a las tarifas de los combustibles como parte de un acuerdo con el Fondo Monetario Internacional para reducir los subsidios a los hidrocarburos y encausar la precaria economía del país. Aunque el gobierno se retractó de inmediato de aumentar los combustibles, las protestas continuaron y tras los disturbios, hombres y mujeres saquearon lo que quedaba de los supermercados afectados.

Las autoridades no han realizado aún una estimación oficial de los años, ni un recuento de los negocios afectados.

Lafontant aseguró que el martes la situación había vuelto a la normalidad y “es posible desplazarse y viajar sin ningún peligro”.
Luego de la tensión del fin de semana y una huelga de transportistas celebrada el lunes para exigir la renuncia de Lafontant, los haitianos volvían el martes a sus actividades cotidianas, los negocios reabrieron sus puertos y brigadas del gobierno aún retiraban las barricadas colocada por los manifestantes para bloquear calles.
El poderoso Foro Económico del Sector Privado, compuesto por los principales gremios empresariales, consideró la víspera en un comunicado que ante la inacción del gobierno durante las protestas, el presidente Jovenel Moïse debe pedir la renuncia inmediata de Lafontant y los miembros de su gabinete como una forma de abrir una puerta a la crisis política.
Los empresarios exhortaron a elegir mediante una amplia concertación a un nuevo primer y a su equipo de gobierno que pueda adoptar un “presupuesto realista y responsable”.
Lafontant insistió que, pese a no ser productor de petróleo, Haití tiene tarifas de carburantes más bajas que muchos países de la región, incluso inferiores a las de la vecina República Dominicana.

          Militares mantienen vigilancia en frontera por Dajabón       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

DAJABON. Efectivos militares, conjuntamente con miembros del Cuerpo Especializado en Seguridad Terrestre Fronteriza (CESFRONT), mantienen este martes una estricta y rigurosa vigilancia por esta zona para impedir el trasiego de mercancías y de ciudadanos indocumentados o ilegales procedentes de Haití.

Asimismo, siguen acuartelados todos los miembros de los organismos de seguridad, de acuerdo a una disposición del ministro de Defensa, teniente general Rubén Paulino Sem, debido a la crisis que vive el pueblo haitiano desde hace varios días por las protestas contra el aumento de los precios de los combustibles.

En esta ciudad pudo constatarse que todo ciudadano haitiano que ingresa por Aduanas debe mostrar todos sus documentos de identidad y el visado correspondiente, además del chequeo que se le hace a su equipaje de mano.

El pasado lunes, miles de ciudadanos haitianos cruzaron el puente fronterizo que divide a los dos países para comprar alimentos en la feria o intercambio comercial que se realiza los lunes y viernes de cada semana.

Asimismo, por esta zona prosiguen las deportaciones de decenas de ciudadanos haitianos, quienes son apresados en los operativos que realizan las autoridades de Migración no solo en esta provincia, sino en las localidades del Cibao Central.

          Riots: 3 Places All Hell Has Broken Loose In The Last Few Days      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

A lot of people like to think that the SHTF is some distant thing that probably won’t ever happen. But, in reality, it happens every single day, someplace in the world. Riots have occurred all over the world recently, stranding travelers, destroying property, and causing serious injuries and death.

Here are 3 different places where all hell has broken loose in just the past few days.

Haiti

It’s a bad time to be in Haiti right now. Apparently, an increase in gasoline prices has caused people to take to the street. A number of American missionaries are currently hunkering down in fear for their lives. They’re unable to get out of the country because many airlines have canceled all flights in and out of the country.

Savannah Peek, a missionary with a team from Richmond County, North Carolina, told WSOC said they are terrified for their lives…

…“We heard gunshots start and they were very close,” said Peek. “At this point, we all dropped immediately to the ground. We’re all on our hands and knees. Everyone’s screaming, everyone’s crying.”

Peek said guns were handed out to civilians for protection.

“People started passing out guns to civilians because we thought the (men) were about to break in and rob us, kill us, start a fire. We had no idea,” she said. (source)

The US Embassy in Haiti issued the following alert:

Due to continuing demonstrations, roadblocks, and violence across Port-au-Prince and throughout Haiti, U.S. citizens should continue to shelter in place.  Do not travel to the airport unless you confirmed your flight is departing.  Flights are canceled today and the airport has limited food and water available.

Telecommunications services, including Internet and phone lines, have been affected throughout Haiti.  It may be difficult to reach people through normal communication methods.

U.S. Embassy personnel are still under a shelter-in-place order.  The embassy will continue to monitor the situation.

The U.S. Embassy will be closed for routine services Monday July 9.  Non-emergency appointments will be rescheduled for a later date.  The Embassy remains open for emergency U.S. citizen services.

Actions to take:

  • Shelter in place. Do not attempt to travel at this time.
  • Avoid protests and any large gathering of people.
  • Do not attempt to drive through roadblocks.
  • If you encounter a roadblock, turn around and get to a safe area.
  • Let family and friends know if you are safe. (source)

Here’s some shocking video footage of the riots.

France

In Nantes, a city in France, a battle has been going on between African migrants and the French police for days now, after the police shot a 22-year-old migrant named Aboubakar Fofana. The riots went on for 4 days but eased when relatives of the Aboubakar Fofana said they were filing a lawsuit.

Initially, police said that the victim was shot because he tried to run over a police officer with a car. Later, they admitted the shooting was in fact NOT self-defense, but an accident.

The worst of riots looked like a war between police and migrants.

Ouest-France reports:

The police forces were deployed massively in the neighborhoods of the rioters. They fired Molotov cocktails at Breil and Bellevue and responded with tear gas grenades.

In total, 35 vehicles were burned. To prevent a resurgence of fires, since last night, Friday, July 6, the Region has banned the retail sale of fuel and fireworks.

In the Breil district, the beginning of a fire hit a building of the Nantes Habitat social landlord. The damage, however, seems small: except for some traces of fire near the building, only a window is barred by a sign; the building is intact.

“Put your weapons, gang of assassins” or “you are going to be afraid in your houses” are the slogans that were launched to the CRS came to reinforcement in the districts. (source)

According to Zero Hedge, things are only going to get worse in France.

The  GEFIRA team expect riots in France to become more and more violent and eventually lethal. Like most Western European societies and the US, the demographic change and the gradual replacement will come with a hefty price.

There are signs that white French bourgeoisie youth will join the violent protests, like Black bloc and Antifa. (source)

Here’s some video footage of the chaos in Nantes.

Portland

And right here in the United States, violent riots have erupted over the Trump administration, political differences, and immigration policies. Portland has been the heart of many political movements since the election of President Trump, starting the day after the election in which Hillary Clinton suffered a surprise loss.

The riots in the city have been going on for the past couple of months, with some particularly heated moments occurring in early July. A Patriot Prayer rally turned violent when members of Antifa showed up and began pelting them with firecrackers, eggs, and water bottles.

The counterprotesters were identified as the Eugene Antifa, who named their demonstration“Defend PDX: Patriot Prayer’s Violence Must End.”

“It is very important that antifascists keep up the pressure so that we can stop them once and for all,” a Facebook event page for the counterprotest read.

“While many acolytes have broken away from Gibson at this point, the core that remains, largely Proud Boys, have grown increasingly violent,” the page said. “For this reason we must sustain our campaign, and keep up our efforts on as many fronts as possible until they completely cease their despicable activity.” (source)

The demonstrators didn’t hesitate to fight back and police used firecrackers, smoke bombs, flash bangs and “aerial distraction in an attempt to disperse the crowd.

This isn’t the first time the groups have gone head to head. They also became violent toward one another in early June and previously, in 2017. Below is a video of what some people are calling “The Battle of Portland.”

What can we learn from all this?

I’m all for protesting and demonstrating against things that are unjust. The right to peaceful protest is written right into the American constitution.

But what we can all learn from this is how quickly something that starts out as a peaceful protest can be disrupted and turned into a violent riot. It can happen anywhere, at any time, and if you are unfortunate enough to be nearby, it can be a life-threatening emergency in some cases.

Here are the things to remember:

  • Learn to watch the signs and foresee when violence is about to erupt so you can get yourself and your family safely away.

  • Make a plan to keep your family safe during times of civil unrest if it should occur near your home. (This article can help.)

  • Avoid situations that are likely to become violent.

  • Remember that fire is one of the most common weapons used in a riot.

  • If you are traveling when violence erupts, plan to hunker down. Contact the American Embassy for help. DO NOT go to the airport unless you know for sure your flight is definitely taking off.

  • Remember that the police and military may be every bit as violent as the crowd and will not have time to differentiate between you and a protester.

  • If you’re caught in a crowd, move diagonally to get yourself out of the masses. Hold on to children so that you do not get separated.

The best thing you can do is avoid trouble. The second best thing you can do is know how to handle it if trouble comes to you.

          9 natural disasters that took the lives of hundreds of thousands      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Haiti 2010 earthquake

  • Natural disasters have taken the lives of millions of people throughout history.
  • China is home to some of the deadliest natural disasters of all time.
  • The 2004 tsunami in Indonesia killed 227,898 people.

Natural disasters claim the lives of thousands of people in the world every year.

It's hard to say which natural disaster is the most deadly. Hurricanes, tsunamis, and earthquakes each have their own classifications, but there is no denying that they all cause major destruction, and take the lives of many. 

Here's a look at some of the deadliest natural disasters that have taken the lives of thousands.

China's Huang He floods — Millions of deaths

China's second-longest river, the Huang He (Yellow), is the source of the three deadliest floods in history. Flooding in 1887, 1931, and 1938 killed millions of people and caused an incalculable amount of damage. 

The 1931 flood was the most destructive. An area equivalent to the size of England was deluged by flood waters that carried debris, diseases, and destroyed crops.

Severe destruction and chaos prevented officials from determining an exact death toll, but it's estimated that 850,000 to 4,000,000 people were killed by the flooding and its lingering effects. Approximately 80 million people were left homeless. 



1556 Shaanxi province earthquake — 830,000 deaths

The Shaanxi earthquake is believed to be the deadliest quake of all time, killing an estimated 830,000 people. The tremor decimated the Shaanxi and Shanxi provinces of northern China by 60%, leveling mountains, inducing flooding, and starting fires in mere seconds.

1976 Great Tangshan earthquake — 650,000 deaths

In 1976, the Great Tangshan Earthquake decimated the Chinese coal and industrial city of Tangshan located just 68 miles east of Beijing. Shortly after the initial shock, a 7.1 magnitude aftershock rocked the city and prevented rescue efforts to the original quake site. 

The official death toll totaled 242,000 people, but some believe the disaster could have been responsible for upwards of 650,000 deaths.

          Zwei Streiktage auf Haiti: Nach der Rücknahme der Benzinpreiserhöhung heißt die Forderung vieler – aber längst nicht aller – Rücktritt der Regierung      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Protest gegen Benzinpreise in Haiti Anfang Juli 2018Seit der Preiserhöhung tobt die Bevölkerung, bricht sich die seit Monaten aufgestaute Wut der Bürger im Armenhaus Lateinamerikas Bahn. »Woher sollen wir das Geld nehmen?« fragt sich Jossel, der von Gelegenheitsarbeiten in Carrefour lebt. Auch die Preise für andere Lebensmittel sind gestiegen. Außerdem hat die Landeswährung Gourdes noch mal an Wert verloren. Aktivisten und die wenigen Gewerkschaften im Land haben der Regierung einen politisch heißen Sommer angedroht - und das bei durchschnittlichen Tagestemperaturen von um die 30 Grad. Die Politiker bekundeten derweil Einsicht: »Sie haben gesprochen, Ihr Präsident hat Sie gehört«, sagte der 50-jährige Staatspräsident Jovenel Moïse in der Hoffnung, die Gemüter zu beruhigen. Der Agrarunternehmer machte vor allem die Presse für die Unruhen und die »mangelnde Kommunikation der Regierung mit der Bevölkerung« verantwortlich. Mit einer im Rundfunk und Fernsehen übertragenen Ansprache versuchte er, die Situation zu entspannen. Er werde seine Regierung bitten, die Tage zuvor angekündigte Erhöhung der Benzinpreise um 38 Prozent zurückzunehmen. Ministerpräsident Jack Guy Lafontant kam dieser Bitte nach. Der politisch heiße Sommer ist damit aber noch lange nicht abgewendet, denn befriedet ist Haitis Bevölkerung nicht...“ – aus dem Artikel „Haitis Regierung lenkt ein“ von Hans-Ulrich Dillmann am 11. Juli 2018 in neues deutschland, worin im Wesentlichen die Situation nach den weiteren Protesten am Wochenende Thema ist – aber auch konkret die Gründe für die massiven Proteste benannt werden, wobei die Preiserhöhungen im Nahverkehr nur die erste Folge der Teuerung sind. Siehe dazu auch zwei aktuelle Beiträge zum Verlauf des Streiks für den Rücktritt der Regierung am Montag und Dienstag, sowie über die Debatten um die weiteren Schritte und den Verweis auf unseren ersten Beitrag zu den aktuellen Protesten

          Goiás tem cinco cidades entre as 312 que estão em alerta para poliomielite, segundo Ministério da Saúde      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

O município de Baliza é o 40º com 12% da cobertura. Entenda quem deve e pode se vacinar contra a doença. Divulgação/SMS Goiânia Baliza, Ouro Verde de Goiás, Moiporá, Novo Planalto e Portelândia são as cinco cidades de Goiás que estão entre os 312 municípios em alerta para poliomielite, segundo levantamento do Ministério da Saúde. A doença está erradicada no Brasil desde 1990 e o último caso em Goiás foi registrado em 1989. No entanto, o baixo índice de imunização preocupa as autoridades do setor, já que a doença, que pode ser mortal, pode voltar a circular no país. Veja onde se imunizar em Goiânia e Aparecida de Goiânia Conhecida popularmente como “paralisia infantil”, a única forma de prevenção da doença é através da vacina. O Ministério da Saúde alertou que, nas cidades citadas, não há número suficiente de pessoas imunizadas contra a doença. O recomendado é que 95% da população de cada cidade esteja devidamente vacinada. Em Goiás, o município de Baliza é o que tem a menor cobertura entre as cidades goianas com apenas 12% das crianças com menos de 1 ano imunizadas contra a doença. Em abril deste ano, a Organização Mundial de Saúde (OMS) notificou surtos da doença na Venezuela e no Haiti de difteria, que causa dificuldade de respirar. Na Venezuela, 142 pessoas já morreram da doença desde 2016. No Brasil, seis casos suspeitos da doença relatados neste ano aguardam confirmação. A doença pode causar paralisia, que começa de forma repentina, e pode afetar desde só as pernas, até o corpo inteiro, comprometendo até a respiração. Segundo o MS, a contaminação ocorre por contato “fecal-oral (mais frequentemente), por objetos, alimentos e água contaminados com fezes de doentes ou portadores, ou pela via oral-oral, através de gotículas de secreções da orofaringe (ao falar, tossir ou espirrar)”. Imunização A vacina inativada contra poliomielite (VIP) é recomendada para crianças aos 2, 4 e 6 meses de vida. Em seguida, elas devem receber dois reforços via oral (VOP - conhecida como “gotinha”): aos 15 meses e aos 4 anos de vida. Conforme o Ministério da Saúde, “pessoas acima de 5 anos de anos não precisam se vacinar contra pólio”. A Secretaria de Estado da Saúde de Goiás (SES-GO), no entanto, afirmou que, mesmo fora da faixa etária recomendada, que até os 5 anos de idade, aqueles que não são imunizados “devem procurar uma unidade de saúde e se vacinar”. Pessoas que já são “vacinadas e com registro no cartão de vacinação estão protegidas”. Cartão de vacina sendo atualizado Reprodução/TV Gazeta Alertas A pediatra Geovanna Batista explicou que a poliomielite é uma doença grave e que pode afetar, principalmente, crianças com menos de 5 anos. Por isso é tão importante que os pais ou responsáveis se atentem à vacinação. “As crianças dessa faixa etária são mais suscetíveis a contrair essas infecções. Primeiro devido ao fato de muitas frequentarem lugares fechados e com maior densidade de pessoas como creches e escolas, por exemplo. Além disso, elas têm um sistema imunológico ainda em formação”, alertou. Ainda segundo ela, a doença é considerada grave e pode causar danos irreparáveis e até levar à morte, em casos raros. “Os sintomas podem ser parecidos com os de outras doenças virais como ou infecções gastrintestinais como náusea, vômito, constipação, dor abdominal e, raramente, diarréia. Porém, 1% das pessoas que contraem poliomielite pode desenvolver a forma paralítica da doença, que pode causar sequelas permanentes, insuficiência respiratória e, em alguns casos, levar à morte”, afirmou. Sarampo Outra doença grave e contagiosa que preocupa os órgãos de saúde é o sarampo. Erradicada desde 2016 no Brasil, a doença voltou em um surto no norte do país em 2018. Entre 1º de janeiro e 23 de maio deste ano, foram registrados 995 casos de sarampo no país (sendo 611 no Amazonas e 384 em Roraima), incluindo duas mortes, segundo a Organização Mundial de Saúde (OMS). Sete cidades goianas também apresentam baixo índice de imunização contra a doença. São elas: Ouro Verde de Goiás, Abadiânia, Novo Planalto, Faina, Baliza, Moiporá e Portelândia. Vacina contra sarampo Cristine Rochol/PMPA Conforme o MS, a imunização contra o sarampo é feita através da vacina Tríplice Viral. O órgão alerta que é uma doença “extremamente contagiosa” e pode ser transmitida através do contato com secreções. Os primeiros sintomas são parecidos com os da gripe, mas evoluem ainda para o aparecimento de manchas vermelhas pelo corpo. As mortes relacionadas com a doença ocorrem, muitas vezes, por causa de complicações no quadro. Proteção As vacinas que protegem contra o sarampo são as conhecidas como tríplice viral e tetra viral. A recomendação do Ministério da Saúde é que, aos 12 meses de vida a pessoa seja imunizada com a tríplice viral e, aos 15 meses, com a tetra. No entanto, caso não tenha recebido as doses no período indicado, a pessoas de até 29 anos precisam ter duas doses da tríplice ou da tetra. Para pessoas entre 30 e 49 anos, que não são imunizadas, é recomendado uma dose única de qualquer uma das duas versões. O MS afirma ainda que “quem já tomou duas doses durante a vida, da tríplice ou da tetra, não precisa mais receber a vacina”. Veja outras notícias da região no G1 Goiás.
          The Spiritual Significance of Trump's Supreme Court Pick      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

We are in the midst of a historic moment for our country. From the moment that Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, every news broadcast in America has been filled with questions about who his replacement will be. And earlier this week, a candidate has been chosen. The entire nation, it seems, is already choosing sides and making judgments. We must be in constant, intense prayer for God to lead us by His Holy Spirit. Through tears we must cry out for His will on the Supreme Court.

While thinking and praying about this last week, I asked myself, What kind of judge do I want, and what kind of judge does America deserve? This question led me to this unusual thought: Two thousand years ago, the world deserved condemnation, judgment and everlasting destruction, but instead, God gave them—and us—a Savior.

Jesus, the one who had the power to condemn us for our sins, did not come to judge us but rather to save us from our own sin. He said, "You judge according to the flesh. I judge no one. Yet if I do judge, My judgment is true. For I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me" (John 8:15-16). Though He had the right to judge us of our sin, instead He took our sin on Himself. Instead of extending condemnation, He extended grace and mercy to mankind, because He knew "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:23).

Paul spoke to this when he wrote the book of Romans and penned these words that came right from the heart of God our Father.

"Who is he who condemns? [does the work of a judge]? It is Christ who died, yes, who is risen, who is also at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us" (Rom. 8:34).

This is the Savior we serve, one who not only took our sin on Himself to make us clean but also who intercedes for us at the throne of God. This is the character of the Father, who gave us a Savior when we deserved a judge.

History demonstrates that God often uses opposing concepts to highlight His magnificent love and power.

  • When a nation wanted a king, our God gave us a servant.
  • When people wanted a warrior, instead God gave us His child.
  • Humanity wanted a champion, but God gave us the cross.
  • We want titles, and God gives a testimony.

Does our society—in a nation that boasts multiple superstar judges, like Judge Judy, Judge Wapner and Judge Joe Brown, to name a few recognizable figures—really need more judgment than there already is, or do we just need more of the Spirit of the Savior? After all, it's easy to judge, but it's better to love.

Now, the Word of the living God talks a lot about judgment, and let me say clearly, God's judgment is coming. Acts 17:31 tells us, "He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by a Man [Jesus] whom He has appointed, having given assurance of this to all men by raising Him from the dead."

But until that day, our cry should be, "Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me!"

Remember, it's easy to judge, but it's better to love.

You are beautiful. I see Jesus in you!

Have an awesome week! {eoa}

          DISTURBIOS Y HUELGA EN HAITÍ Por el FMI subieron el precio de la nafta y se prendió fuego todo      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Cientos de haitianos cruzan a la provincia dominicana Dajabón para abastecerse de alimentos y otros productos esenciales, luego de las protestas violentas que se han registrado desde el viernes 06/07. Haití se encuentra paralizada por una huelga de transporte luego de 3 días de violentos disturbios por un aumento en los precios de los combustibles, que el Gobierno dejó sin efecto poco después del anuncio como consecuencia de la airada reacción popular. El ajuste del precio del combustible es parte del paquete de ajustes que firmó en febrero con el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI).

La violencia callejera se desató el viernes 06/07 en Puerto Príncipe, cuando el Gobierno anunció que al día siguiente (sábado 07/07) entraría en vigor un fuerte incremento del precio de los combustibles, como parte del paquete de ajustes que firmó en febrero con el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI).
El anuncio fue conocido mientras la población miraba de partido de Brasil y Bélgica en el Mundial Rusia 20118.
Las autoridades dispusieron aumentos de un 37% en el precio de las naftas; de un 40% en el gasóleo (diesel oil) y más de un 50% en el querosén, este último muy utilizado para alumbrar las casas haitianas de amplios sectores de escaso poder adquisitivo.
Cuando terminó el partido, comenzaron las barricadas (de neumáticos usados quemados, grandes piedras, residuos de vehículos y otros materiales) en todas las calles: centro de Puerto Príncipe, carreteras en el norte, nordeste (en los municipios de Croix des Bouquets, Tabarre) y en el sur (en el municipio de Carrefour), en el este (en el municipio de Petionville), en Carrefour Feuilles (periferia sureste) y otras.
Un número indeterminado de personas quedaron bloqueadas, sorprendidas en sus trabajos, casas de amigos o donde fuese porque la circulación automóvil y de taximotos fue suspendida. Muchas personas tenían miedo de salir, de ver sus vehículos atacados con piedras o de ser víctimas de violencia, al momento de tratar de regresar a casa.
Los conductores de mototaxis fueron obligados a dar parte de su combustible en cada barricada que trataron de cruzar con pasajeras y pasajeros, a modo de peaje.

Muchas y muchos conductores dejaron sus vehículos en las calles y trataron de ir a casa de pie. Una gran parte llego bastante tarde a casa, casi a media noche.
Desde la noche de 06/07/2018, hasta en la noche del domingo 08/07/2018 se oyeron disparos de armas de fuego.
El día sábado 07/07/2018, la crisis política parecía peor que el terremoto del martes 12/011/2010.

Fue muy complicado salir a las calles, todas las empresas, todas las bombas, todos los bancos, todos los comercios estuvieron cerrados.
La gente, en las calles, empezó a asaltar las empresas, sobre todo los grandes supermercados. Por ejemplo, las sucursales del supermercado Delimart, algunas de las cuales sufrieron incendios. También una sucursal de Capital Bank y otra de Unibank.
Según diferentes fuentes, por lo menos 3 personas fueron asesinadas, muertas a tiros en Puerto Príncipe.
El sábado 07/07/2018 recrudecieron las manifestaciones y actos vandálicos. La gente se puso más enojada después de las palabras del 1er. ministro Jack Guy Lafontant, quien dijo que es la primera vez que mucha gente, en el campo, pudo recibir aparatos de TV, lo que demostraba que su gobierno está trabajando por el bienestar de la población.

Al mediodía un grupo de personas intentó llegar hasta el Parlamento, pero fue dispersado por agentes de la Policía, que hizo disparos al aire.
En la tarde del sábado, Lafontant mandó un tweet, informando su decisión de suspender "hasta nuevo orden" la medida de aumentar los precios del combustible.
Pero el anuncio en Twitter no calmó a la gente enojada.
El caos continuó en la capital y otros puntos del país, a pesar de que casi a medianoche el presidente haitiano, Jovenel Moise, recordó que el incremento había sido revocado y pidió calma y el retorno de la normalidad.
El ministro de Comunicación Social, Guyler C. Delva, señaló en Twitter que “el tiempo de los golpes de Estado ha terminado” y que Moise “fue elegido democráticamente” y “seguirá trabajando para sacar a la población de la pobreza”.

Por su parte, el Ministerio de Turismo condenó los ataques a los hoteles y otros bienes privados este fin de semana. “No podemos resolver los problemas con violencia (...) hay que respetar los bienes y las infraestructuras”, señaló en un comunicado.
El martes 10/07 el 1er. ministro, Jack Guy Lafontant, encabezó una reunión con los representantes del Parlamento para evaluar la situación creada tras las violentas protestas, que han dejado al menos 3 muertos y varios heridos.
Durante estos días también ocurrieron disturbios en Cabo Haitiano (departamento del Norte) y Jacmel (Sur Este). Y se levantaron barricadas en casi todas las ciudades del Sur Este.
En el primero de 2 días de huelga convocada por los sindicatos, Puerto Príncipe, la capital de este deprimido país, quedó prácticamente desierta, con la presencia en las calles de solo vehículos privados, ya que el transporte público era nulo.
Las personas, además, han optado por permanecer en sus casas por precaución.
La frontera entre República Dominicana y Haití (ambos países comparten la isla La Española) se encuentra en calma a pesar de la huelga y las protestas.
Haití vivió un lunes 09/07 de tensa calma en el inicio de 2 días de huelga general convocada por los sindicatos. Haití está en una situación de país bloqueado, cerrado, desde hace 2 días, con el movimiento de protestas, registradas sobre todo en la zona metropolitana de la Capital, Puerto Príncipe.
Los tradicionales mercados de los lunes en las provincias Pedernales y Jimaní (suroeste) y Dajabón (noroeste), fronterizos con Haití, se desarrollaron pese a todo. No obstante, en declaraciones a medios locales, algunos comerciantes expresaron preocupación por la situación.
Las aerolíneas han empezado a retomar los vuelos, pero varias embajadas, como la de Alemania, Canadá y USA no abrieron sus puertas y han pedido a sus ciudadanos no salir a la calles y estar atentos.
Hay riesgos de crisis humanitaria, con varios productos de consumo que van a escasear en los mercados, la posibilidad de ausencia de diferentes productos, sobre todo alimentos esenciales. Las ciudadanas y ciudadanos tienen temor de ver que se extienda la crisis política, ya en una situación de no retorno a lo normal.

Entre los activistas, Unidad Internacional de los Trabajadores (UIT-CI), realizó una descripción de la situación: "El gobierno del empresario derechista Jovenel Moïse acusa una gran debilidadLlegó al poder luego de dos elecciones fraudulentas, una en 2015 y su repetición en 2016; ambas fueron impugnadas y repudiadas por grandes movilizaciones. Su juramentación ocurrió recién en enero 2018. Es el heredero directo de más de 13 años de ocupación militar por parte de las tropas de la Minustah, contingente enviado por la ONU para sostener al régimen surgido del golpe de Estado contra Jean Bertrand Aristide en 2004. El año pasado la Minustah anunció su disolución para dar paso a un contingente policial multinacional de menor tamaño, la Minujusth. Además de ello, el financiamiento petrolero brindado por el gobierno venezolano, un importante subsidio que benefició al régimen heredero del golpe durante más de una década, ha menguado como consecuencia de la crisis en el país suramericano.
A todo esto se suma una crisis en las fuerzas policiales, que se acuartelaron, negándose a responder a las órdenes represivas del gobierno. En ese marco, el descontento popular se ha desbordado y no se limita al tema de los combustibles sino que exige la salida del gobierno títere del FMI y el imperialismo.
Las tropas de ocupación de la Minustah acumularon un prontuario terrible de abusos contra los derechos humanos, la generación de una epidemia de cólera, y abusos sexuales. Estaban integradas principalmente por tropas latinoamericanas provistas por los gobiernos "progresistas" de Brasil, Argentina, Uruguay, Ecuador y Bolivia, entre otros. Es fundamental la solidaridad internacional para exigir que la Minujusth no reprima al pueblo haitiano y exigir su retirada del país.
Pese a su gran masividad, la revuelta popular carece de una dirección política. (...)".

Una tendencia en América Latina
Por Jorge Altamira - Martín Sánchez
Insurrección popular en Haití
El anuncio del aumento de las tarifas del combustible y el querosén desataron, este viernes en Puerto Príncipe, la capital de Haití, una insurrección de masas. El gobierno había anunciado la entrada en vigor un tarifazo del 37% de la gasolina, de un 40% en el diesel y más de un 50% en el querosén (utilizado comúnmente para iluminar y calefaccionar los hogares). Las medidas formaban parte de un paquete de ‘ajustes’ firmado por el gobierno en febrero pasado con el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI).

La Policía Nacional se encontró totalmente desbordada por la magnitud del levantamiento. Un policía murió linchado y un guardia de seguridad murió calcinado dentro de su propio vehículo. Los incendios de vehículos, las barricadas y los saqueos rápidamente se extendieron por toda la capital y diferentes puntos del país. 

A pesar de que el sábado, el presidente y el primer ministro anunciaron que daban marcha atrás con los aumentos, las protestas continuaron. El domingo alcanzaron la ciudad de Cabo Haitiano (norte), Les Cayes (sur) y Malpasse (sureste), fronteriza con República Dominicana, donde fueron incendiadas las oficinas aduaneras. Los sindicatos de transportistas han convocado una huelga durante lunes y martes, que ha paralizado las principales ciudades.

Bronca

Las brutales condiciones de miseria y atraso a las que son sometidas las masas haitianas no tienen parangón. Según datos de la ONU, más del 80% de la población sobrevive con menos de 2 dólares diarios y un 63% no puede suplir sus necesidades básicas de alimentos. Según estadísticas del Banco Mundial, sólo el 2% de sus habitantes gana por encima de los 10 dólares diarios.

La infraestructura ultra-precaria hace de Haití una nación extremadamente vulnerable a las catástrofes naturales. El terremoto de 2010 se cobró 300 mil vidas, el paso del huracán Matthew casi mil. Sin embargo, su vecino República Dominicana, en la misma Isla, que cuenta con casi la misma cantidad de población (10 millones de habitantes), no registró ninguna muerte producto del terremoto y, aunque sufrió el paso de Matthew en menor intensidad, sólo consignó cuatro muertos.

Semejante situación social es una olla a presión. En 2004, tras el golpe de estado perpetuado contra el gobierno de Jean-Bertrand Aristide (calificado como ‘populista’), se conformó la Minustah, una fuerza militar encabezada por tropas de Brasil (Lula) y Argentina (Néstor Kirchner) con la colaboración de todos los países latinoamericanos, a excepción de Venezuela y Cuba, e incluso la participación de China. El financiamiento de esta fuerza de ocupación corrió a cargo de la ONU, o sea de las potencias imperialistas. La “misión de paz” rápidamente se convirtió en el centro de la bronca popular y el repudio internacional. La Minustah protagonizó abusos de todo tipo, incluidos escándalos de explotación sexual de menores, y fue responsable una epidemia de cólera que afectó a 800 mil haitianos y provocó diez mil fallecidos. Esta experiencia de horrores llevó al suicidio a un general del ejército de Brasil.

Super-explotación capitalista

Haití no solamente es un paraíso de la super-explotación capitalista, concentrada en un reducido núcleo de exportadores.

El terremoto de 2010 fue aprovechado para impulsar el gran negociado la “reconstrucción”. Lo mismo ha ocurrido en Irak y es lo que figura en la agenda acerca de la ‘normalización política en Siria. La ‘ayuda humanitaria’ fue la ocasión de gigantescos hechos de corrupción y de lavado de dinero. Envolvieron a grandes grupos multinacionales, a la Cruz Roja Internacional y a los ‘arquitectos’ del esquema – el matrimonio Clinton. Los escombros tardaron años en removerse y miles de personas que perdieron su hogar durante el terremoto siguen viviendo en campamentos de refugiados.

Una parte importante de los fondos de ‘reconstrucción’ fue destinada a erigir nuevos hoteles de lujo para el turismo y de zonas francas industriales en condiciones de trabajo que lindan con la esclavitud. Los 30.000 trabajadores –casi dos tercios, mujeres– de las plantas que funcionan en las zonas francas se dedican fundamentalmente a la confección de vestimenta para firmas como las estadounidenses GAP, Levi’s, y Walmart. Se incumplen las leyes que regulan las condiciones de trabajo, las jornadas de trabajo son extenuantes y ni siquiera se respeta el miserable salario mínimo fijado por ley de U$S 4,84 por día.

Por otro lado, la explotación de los recursos naturales no cuenta con ninguna regulación. La deforestación ya es casi absoluta (se calcula que sólo queda un 2% de superficie boscosa original). Ahora el gobierno ha otorgado grandes exenciones impositivas a las empresas mineras para la explotación a cielo abierto. Los recursos mineros de Haití se han calculado en 20.000 millones de dólares. Inversores estadounidenses y canadienses han gastado más de 30 millones de dólares en los últimos años en perforaciones exploratorias y otras actividades relacionadas con la minería.

Miles de haitianos han emigrado a Estados Unidos y otros países, donde ofician como una reserva de mano de obra precarizada. Esto no impide que remesas que los haitianos en el exterior envían a su país representen el 22,4% de su bajísimo PBI. Sogebank, uno de los bancos más grandes, opera como agente local de Western Union y monopoliza el mercado formal de remesas, con comisiones abusivas.
Obviamente, persiste el empleo generalizado de menores en el servicio doméstico, conocidos como restavèks, en su mayoría niñas. Si bien no hay cálculos precisos, algunos estiman que entre 225.000 y 300.000 niños trabajan como restavèks. A menudo, estos menores no reciben pago alguno y por supuesto no tienen acceso a educación. Son abusados física o sexualmente. Además, muchos menores son víctimas del tráfico de personas o utilizados en el contrabando de armas o de drogas.

El actual gobierno asumió después de un proceso eleccionario sumamente fraudulento, postergado durante dos años y en el cual participó sólo el 20% de la población. Entre otros compromisos internacionales, asumió reconstruir el ejército nacional para permitir la salida de las tropas extranjeras cuyo financiamiento se calcula en miles de millones de dólares. 

En este contexto la Minustah fue sustituida por una nueva fuerza militar de la ONU, la MINUSTJUTH, una fuerza más reducida con la cual también colabora la Gendarmería de Argentina. 

La cuestión de la dirección política

De acuerdo a la evaluación de periodistas en el terreno, la insurrección no tiene coordinación y carece de dirección política. Fue precedida, sin embargo, por una huelga general lanzada por los sindicatos, pero obviamente sin dirección estratégica. Esto significa, en primer lugar, que el ‘populismo’ en Haití, históricamente muy fuerte entre las masas, no ha desarrollado ningún trabajo de preparación política y que está ausente en el levantamiento, en su condición de tendencia política. Es probable que sea convocado por el imperialismo, como ha ocurrido en el pasado, cuando se fue desintegrando la dictadura de los Duvalier, padre e hijo, para desviar el movimiento popular hacia ‘canales institucionales’. Es lo que ha ocurrido repetidamente en América Latina. Las masas haitianas están excluidas de la educación formal, pero no por ello son menos politizadas. Llevaron al gobierno al sacerdote Aristide, que fracasó en forma miserable, luego de actuar como correa de transmisión del partido Demócrata de Estados Unidos y de la familia Clinton, para poner un freno a las insurrecciones de hace dos décadas.  El año pasado, los sindicaos declararon una huelga general, sin que la prensa internacional prestara la menor atención, para reclamar el aumento del salario mínimo. Por otro lado, se ha abierto una ‘grieta’ en el gobierno, cuyo ministro de comunicaciones, desmintió al presidente acerca de retrotraer las tarifas al nivel precedente.  

La crisis de dirección de la insurrección haitiana pone de nuevo en agenda la responsabilidad política del conjunto de la izquierda de lucha de clases y de todo el activismo combativo en América Latina. Es necesario un frente único a escala continental para apoyar las insurrecciones (Haití), levantamientos populares (Nicaragua), la necesidad de una salida obrera al derrumbe social (Venezuela) y las crisis de conjunto de todos los regímenes políticos de América Latina, en la perspectiva estratégica de un Gobierno de Trabajadores y la Unidad Socialista de América Latina. La intervención en la crisis de conjunto de los regímenes políticos patronales en América Latina, ‘neo-liberales’ y ‘populistas’, y en las luchas de los obreros y campesinos, está claramente en la agenda. La crisis mundial, por un lado, y la movilización popular, por el otro, han abierto perspectivas revolucionarias que deben ser preparadas políticamente. El gobierno actual de Haití es el resultado de elecciones fraudulentas, en las que obtuvo un cuarto de los votos. 

Frente a este desplome planteamos: por gobiernos de trabajadores (obreros y campesinos) y la Unidad Socialista de América Latina. 
En Haití, concretamente, se plantea: retiro inmediato de la MINUSTJUTH. Fuera las tropas argentinas de Haití. Confiscación de la gran propiedad agraria, de los monopolios de exportación y de los bancos. Por el control y la gestión obrera colectiva.

Convertir a la huelga general en indefinida. Elección de un Comité nacional de Huelga. Formación de milicias obreras y campesinas.

Would you be able to keep a cool head if you or someone you know needed first aid? It can be difficult to be prepared for every sort of emergency situation, but having some basic knowledge is always helpful.

Learn these quick tips to help save a life or to help keep you and your loved ones more prepared in case of emergency.

Download a first aid app.

There's really an app for everything. From cuts to CPR to broken bones, these apps have what you need for assistance in many emergency situations. A few of the most popular first aid phone apps available for iOS and Android are First Aid by the American Red Cross (there's even a pet version!), Army First Aid, and Pocket First Aid & CPR.

These apps aren't just for show, either. With the help of a first aid app, a man survived being under rubble for over 60 hours after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

And if you'd like to help those in need or more easily find a trained bystander, you can also download Pulsepoint, an app which connects CPR-trained individuals to nearby emergencies.



Remove splinters with glue.

A splinter might not seem like the most life-threatening condition, but unremoved splinters may embed themselves deeper in the skin and cause infection. Instead of resorting to the dreaded tweezers, simply place a thin layer of craft glue on the area of skin with the splinter, let dry, peel off, and voilà. The splinter will be easily lifted from the skin.



Learn hands-only CPR.

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can be performed in many situations, including cardiac arrest or drowning. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), even knowing the basics of hands-only CPR (no mouth-to-mouth or defibrillator use) can save a life.

"If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of any tune that is 100 to 120 beats per minute," The AHA website states. That's about the tempo of "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees or "Yeah!" by Usher. Also according to the AHA: immediate hands-only CPR can double or triple a person's chance of survival.

Getting fully certified in CPR is a great idea, too. To find a CPR certification course near you, check out the AHA's course finder.

          El "ajuste" del FMI y la "ayuda humanitaria" de EE.UU. en Haití      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 

Los haitianos rechazan las exigencias del FMI, en el marco de un acuerdo de "ayuda humanitaria" y la intervención de EE.UU. y la ONU, que ha devastado aún más al país.

Desde el 6 de julio, cientos de personas protestan en las calles de Haití en rechazo al aumento en los precios de la gasolina, el petróleo y el kerosene. Una medida acordada en febrero entre el Gobierno y el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI).

Ante la violencia, la medida fue revertida al día siguiente y el presidente Jovenel Moïse llamó a la población a regresar a sus hogares. Sin embargo, las protestas continuaron y han dejado al menos tres muertos, así como daños a edificios gubernamentales, comercios, hoteles y oficinas de negocios.

Los disturbios ocurrieron en la capital Puerto Príncipe, en la ciudad Cap-Haitien y en las comunas de Les Cayes, Jacmel y Petit-Goave.

Para el 9 y 10 de julio sindicatos y grupos opositores convocaron a una huelga general, la cual se cumplió y causó la paralización del transporte. Pese a esto, el país permanece en relativa calma y algunos comercios abrieron sus puertas.
La "ayuda humanitaria" del FMI y EE.UU.

La medida de "ajuste" del FMI implicaba el aumento de la gasolina en 38 por ciento, del diésel en 47 por ciento y el del kerosene en 51 por ciento, este último utilizado por la mayoría de los haitianos para alumbrar sus casas, debido a que no tienen electricidad.

Se trataba de un acuerdo de "ayuda humanitaria" entre el Gobierno de Haití y el FMI, realizado sin el consentimiento de la población, como parte de un programa de ajustes, cuyo propósito era poner fin a los subsidios que tienen los productos derivados del petróleo bajo el pretexto de reducir el déficit presupuestario gubernamental y "estabilizar" la economía.

El rechazo a la medida fue de inmediato pues el acceso al combustible es solo es posible gracias a los subsidios. La mayoría de los haitianos aún viven en pobreza extrema, en un país con desempleo generalizado y una alta inflación.

La deuda de Haití con el FMI se dio tras el terremoto de 2010, que dejó al menos 222 mil 570 fallecidos, 1,5 millones de personas en la indigencia y pérdidas materiales calculadas en 7.900 millones de dólares. Se trató de un "préstamo" de 114 millones de dólares que debía empezar a ser reembolsado tras un período de cinco años y medio.

Tras el terremoto, el país también sufrió una epidemia de cólera, de la cual es acusado el personal de paz de Naciones Unidas. La enfermedad mató a más de 8 mil personas y más de 650 mil se enfermaron. A esta catástrofe se unieron los huracanes Matthew e Irma en 2016 y 2017, tras los cuales miles de personas siguen viviendo en campamentos.

El terremoto sirvió de excusa para una nueva intervención "humanitaria" de Estados Unidos (EE.UU.) en Haití, donde años antes, entre 1951 y 1986, fue responsable de implementar la dictadura de los Duvalier para controlar y saquear los recursos naturales de la isla.

Esta calamidad que atravesaba el país también abrió la oportunidad para la "ayuda humanitaria" de la ONU, que tomó el control de la isla con la misión MINUSTAH (7 mil soldados y policías).

La intervención extranjera terminó siendo un fraude económico, pues mientras el país seguía sufriendo las consecuencias del terremoto, millones de dólares en "ayuda humanitaria" de Occidente no llegaron nunca a la población. Casi el 90 por ciento de este financiamiento quedó en organizaciones extranjeras, entre ellas se acusa a la Fundación Clinton.

La deuda externa de Haití se estima en unos 890 millones de dólares, de los cuales el 41 por ciento corresponde al Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID), su mayor acreedor, y el 27 por ciento al Banco Mundial (BM).

          Protesting Trump's Immigration Policy Through Song       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In the long-running and contentious debate over immigration in this century, nothing has struck a public nerve in the United States like the news that children were being forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border by order of a policy implemented by the Trump administration earlier this year.

Social media and opinion polls screamed condemnation and sparked existential questions about national character, while hundreds of protests took place around the country days before the United States celebrated its independence.

It didn't take long before politically engaged musicians were speaking up about the policy in both words and song.

Strongly worded statements about the plight of Central American immigrants at the border came from the mainstream, from Bruce Springsteen to country singer Willie Nelson, rapper Common, and Puerto Rico's Luis Fonsi and Ricky Martin, among many others. They joined the many Latinx musicians who have been challenging Trump's approach to immigration and immigrants ever since the real estate mogul was a candidate in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Earlier this month, Guatemalan musician Gaby Moreno lent her voice to the movement. Her shows in the United States are usually packed with fellow chapinos, many of whom made the same arduous journey across the border that is central to the current debate.

Moreno's upcoming album is a collaboration with iconic music producer and arranger Van Dyke Parks. The pair released the single "The Immigrants" on the Fourth of July to condemn the family separation policy, as well as what they call inhumane conditions in the detention centers. (Proceeds from the sale of the track and streaming from the video will go to Central American Resource Center of California [CARECEN], a nonprofit organization devoted to empowering Central Americans and all immigrants by defending their human and civil rights.)

The song has a curious background: Written in 1998 by calypso performer David Rudder, it was penned in reaction to the infamous police beating of Haitian immigrant Abner Louima in New York City. Moreno adapted some of the lyrics to reflect the more recent wave of immigrants from Central America.

Another way to join the chorus of protest is to, well, actually play for a protest.

On a balmy late June afternoon, D.C.-based mariachi band Los Gallos Negros sang an impassioned chorus called "Migra" in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., during a rally against what was President Donald Trump's policy of separating the children of asylum seekers from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border; the organizers had asked the band to start the rally with a song. Bandleader Daniel Herrera says playing music for events like this is a deeply personal statement for all of its members.

"All of us are children of immigrants, and this issue hits us very hard in a very guttural and emotional way," says Herrera. "So we wanted to be able to contribute any little piece of art that we have to this mosaic of social justice."

One of the facilities being used to temporarily — and separately — house parents and children sits in Tornillo, Texas, between between Interstate 10 and the Mexican border, about 35 miles east of El Paso. Tornillo is also home to the Sonic Ranch, a five-studio residential recording complex that sits among 40 acres of pecan trees. It is a favorite of many Texas musicians, including David Garza, who was at the Sonic Ranch working on some recordings when a spontaneous demonstration at the holding facility quickly became part of the national dialogue. Garza says he grabbed a guitar and headed out to join the folks protesting.

"I was strangely the only musician out there with all the other people," Garza says. "There were hundreds of people, eventually thousands of people, and one guitar. It was an honor to represent music like that."

Garza says his march playlist included "movement" songs from the 1970s fight for Chicano civil rights in the southwest.

"People wanted to hear everything, from the classics 'No Nos Moveran' and 'De Colores' — which is from the Cesar Chavez days of the '70s — to Tom Petty's 'I Won't Back Down' and 'Yo Soy Chicano,' another great '70s-era fight song," Garza says. "People just wanted to hear songs that make them feel like they are part of the fight."

After that experience, David Garza was moved to record a song right on the border, featuring vocalist Paulina Reza of The Chamanas. In the video, Garza and Reza stand back to back on the border, with Garza in the United States and Reza on the Mexican side. The decades-old song, "Bésame Mucho," is one of the most iconic romance boleros to come out of Mexico, yet the lyrics of the chorus take on a haunting new meaning in the context of family separation:

Kiss me, kiss me many times

As if this were our last night together

Kiss me, kiss me many times

Because I am afraid to love you and then lose you

In 1948, folk singer Woody Guthrie directly addressed the Mexican immigrant experience in a song about a plane crash in Central California that killed 28 migrant farm workers who were being deported back to Mexico.While the American pilots and flight attendants who also died were identified by name in media reports of the crash, the Mexican nationals were just referred to as "deportees." (In February 2017, Alt.Latino dedicated an episode of our show to the story of those lost names and their eventual recovery by a Fresno author after years of research.)

There have been many other non-Latinx artists besides Guthrie who have long devoted their music to the plight of immigrants from Latin America and the struggles they endure — Nashville-based country songwriter Radney Foster is one.

Originally from Del Rio, Texas, near the border, Foster says that growing up there sensitized him to his Mexican neighbors.

"We're not Latinos," Foster says, "but after four generations on the border, my father was adamant that every one of his children learn to speak Spanish, because he believed you couldn't make a living there if you didn't."

In 1999, Foster wrote "Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)" for his son after they were separated by a custody dispute, with lyrics inspired by the children's book Goodnight Moon. He says the family separation policy moved him to revisit the song and release a new version, titled "Godspeed (Dulces Sueños)."

"The whole situation — from a personal level, from a level of faith, from a level of humanness — everything about that seemed just wrong," Foster says. "And I feel that if we don't speak up, no one will.

"I got the Spanish as far as I could; then I called my first high school girlfriend, Déborah Hernandez," he says. "She and I collaborated on really getting the Spanish right, and we really concentrated on making the lyrics about making an open-air dangerous journey with a small child."

Foster's new lyrics are written from the perspective of someone who risks everything in the hopes of finding safe haven on this side of the border. Its second verse, originally about reading children books before bed, are now reimagined for a family in transit: "No tenemos libros en este viaje / Pero puedo cantar." ("We don't have books on this trip / But I can sing.") Proceeds from the song are being directed to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, a nonprofit organization in Texas that provides legal representation for undocumented immigrants.

The situation on the border resonates with guitarist and composer Marc Ribot personally.

"I'm Jewish. Every year at Passover, we would pray," he says. We would remind ourselves: 'You must know the heart of the stranger, for you were a stranger once yourself in the land of Egypt.' "

Ribot is also no stranger to musical resistance, or to repurposing classic songs for a more current political context. Ribot's upcoming album, Songs of Resistance 1942 - 2018,is a musical reaction to the current political climate — not just in the United States, but around the world.

"We understood that to mean that you have to show compassion to immigrants," he continues. "People that my grandmother and grandfather knew died because other countries wouldn't accept them. That is within living human memory. So what's going on at the border touched me personally and deeply."

Songs of Resistance includes a cover of "Rata de Dos Patas," or "A Rat with Two Feet," a song made popular by the Mexican vocalist Paquita la del Barrio, a ranchera singer known for taking Mexico's sexist culture of machismo to task with biting lyrics. In his interpretation, Ribot directs the song's strong name-calling — of "rata inmunda" ("filthy rodent"), "animal rastrero" (despicable animal) "escoria de la vida" ("scum of humanity"), "adefesio mal hecho" (deformed monstrosity), among many others — at President Trump.

"I thought it would make a very relevant political statement," Ribot says.

The Washington, D.C., band Elena Y Los Fulanos recorded the song "Amor Migrante" four years ago, telling the story of a mother who has left her home country in search of a better life for her child, even though she has had to leave her child behind. The theme of a mother's separation from her child resonates even louder now. The video for the song features a real undocumented mother who hasn't seen her son in 12 years.

"We want to tell the current administration to stop ignoring their direct role in creating this situation," Gaby Moreno says. "They're focusing instead on the cruel [behavior] of immigrants, on border security. But people are fleeing their countries because of social inequality, from gang violence, from ineffective justice systems. So we're here to tell people it just needs to stop. I just want [immigrants] to be received with more love and empathy."

In Haiti, massive anti-austerity protests recently shut down parts of the capital Port-au-Prince after the government tried to dramatically raise fuel prices at the behest of the International Monetary Fund. Prices for gasoline, diesel and kerosene were to rise as much as 50 percent, but the government rescinded the price hikes due to public outcry. The proposed IMF-mandated fuel hikes come amid expected cuts to food subsidies.

          Haití trata de recobrar normalidad tras huelga y violentas protestas - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Haití trata hoy de recobrar la normalidad tras dos días de una huelga de transporte convocada después de las violentas protestas del fin de semana por un fallido aumento en los precios de los combustibles.

Las calles de Puerto Príncipe, capital del empobrecido país, comenzaron hoy a recuperar su ritmo habitual y el transporte público funciona con normalidad después de dos días de parálisis a causa de una huelga de 48 horas. Mientras, las personas trataban incorporarse a sus actividades cotidianas, entre las que destacan los trabajadores informales en las calles de esta ciudad.

La ciudadanía está a la espera de que el presidente del país, Jovenel Moise, quien ha mantenido en las últimas horas reuniones con representantes locales y extranjeros, anuncie cambios en su Gobierno y medidas para enfrentar la difícil situación económica.

El mandatario se reunió ayer con empresarios, parte de los cuales han pedido la renuncia del primer ministro, Jack Guy Lafontant, así como con representantes de los partidos políticos y del "Core Group", integrado por embajadores y representantes de organismos internacionales en Haití.

Moise dijo ayer en su cuenta de Twitter que está consultando con todos los sectores para tomar una decisión adecuada con el fin de responder a la situación creada tras los disturbios del fin de semana.

Parte de la oposición ha pedido a la población seguir protestando para reclamar cambios en el Gobierno, mientras que el presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Gary Bodeau, anunció ayer una sesión el próximo sábado para debatir el voto de confianza al Primer Ministro y su Gobierno.

Los actos de violencia comenzaron el viernes pasado cuando el Gobierno dijo que al día siguiente entrarían en vigor los nuevos precios de los combustibles, que reflejaban incrementos de entre 37 a más de un 50 %, que finalmente se dejaron sin efecto.

Durante los disturbios hombres con armas de fuego y blanca bloquearon calles, atacaron negocios y saquearon supermercados. Lafontant anunció ayer que el Gobierno investigará los hechos violentos del fin de semana, que según distintas fuentes dejaron entre tres y siete muertos.

Un hombre carga a un menor en una carretilla cerca a una barricada de llantas en llamas en el marco de las protestas de los últimos tres días por el aumento en los precios de los combustibles.

En un comunicado, el jefe de Gobierno afirmó que el objetivo de la subida de los combustibles era recaudar mayores recursos para las infraestructuras y el sector eléctrico.

"Cancelamos los aumentos de los precios (de los combustibles) y comprendemos por qué la gente está enfadada", dijo, y señaló que en los últimos 17 meses el Gobierno del presidente haitiano, Jovenel Moise, ha hecho "mucho para mejorar la situación de la población".


          JIMANI: Crisis en Haití afecta mercado binacional; queman vehículos y destruyen puestos de aduanas de Malpasse.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   





JIMANI: La situación de crisis que vive Haití ha generado inconvenientes en el mercado binacional que se celebra los lunes y jueves de cada semana en el punto fronterizo de Malpasse, en este municipio, el cual es totalmente nulo la mañana de hoy.

Mal Passe, a pocos kilómetros de Jimani, ubicada en el lado haitiano de la línea divisoria, fue objeto de quema de vehículos y de saqueos en el día de ayer domingo, mientras que las oficinas de Migración y Aduanas también fueron saqueadas, por turbas enardecidas de haitianos.

La tensión se hace mayor en puestos de ventas o tiendas, donde los comerciantes protegen, temiendo les sean saqueadas sus puestos de ventas que mantienen desde hace más de veinte años en ese lugar, según los reportes que en ese sentido, envía el periodista Miguel Mayobanex Volques.

Ante los disturbios de viernes y sábado y posterior llamado a paro general en el transporte, donde fueron incendiadas la aduana en el lado haitiano del punto fronterizo, el mercado binacional es totalmente nulo por la ausencia de vendedores y compradores.

A pesar de que el Ministerio de Defensa de Republica Dominicana ha anunciado un aumento de la seguridad en este punto fronterizo, en Jimani, no ha sido tan notorio el supuesto aumento de la seguridad aquí, dijo la fuente.
Los puestos de aduanas de Haití, distante a 3.3 kilómetros del municipio de Jimani, igualmente vehículos del transporte públicos y privados, resultaron quemados por las turbas de manifestantes.

          Negocios importantes que producen impuestos en Haití hoy no existen, dice analista      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
SANTO DOMINGO.- El periodista y miembro del servicio consular Delis Herasme, indicó este martes que la industria haitiana está destrozada “ya que alrededor de los 100 negocios más importantes que producen impuestos en Haití hoy no existen”, debido a las protestas provocadas por el anuncio en el aumento de los combustibles.
Herasme señaló que en Haití quemaron varios negocios “y nadie reacciona porque todo el mundo está agobiado por la escasez de dinero, esa es la realidad en este momento”.
Durante una entrevista en el programa de radio El Sol de la Mañana, destacó que “ahora hay un proceso de negociación entre la parte política y la parte económica de la comunidad internacional”.
“El primer ministro en la tradición haitiana, es el que normalmente es revocado porque es un funcionario designado por el presidente, pero él tiene que presentar renuncia y no lo ha hecho, porque hay un proceso de negociación en el que se busca establecer un gobierno de consenso tratando de preservar la permanencia del presidente Jovenel Möise, que fue electo por el pueblo”, añadió el analista político.
Explicó que “no se tomaron las previsiones de lo que significaría en la industria y en la población un incremento de 240 y pico de pesos a 309 pesos, o sea cada combustible iba a incrementar alrededor de 60 gourde, en un momento en que la moneda haitiana oscila entre 65 y 75 por uno, o sea insostenible”.
Aseguró que el Gobierno no tiene dinero, hasta el punto que los empleados del Estado haitiano tienen entre 4 y 6 meses que no cobran sus salarios.
“El Estado haitiano está operando por la mínima de recursos necesarios para no cerrar totalmente, entonces qué ocurre, el Gobierno acepta la imposición de medidas del Fondo Monetario, se hacen todos los tipos de advertencias de las consecuencias  económicas para la industria haitiana”, enfatizó.
Porque según explica, extrañamente esas son las menos beneficiarias del consumo de combustible de Haití del subsidio, porque la población haitiana solo consume entre un 15 y 20 por ciento del combustible que se importa, lo otro lo consume la industria y los negocios.
Herasme aclaró que el presidente Möise se encuentra en territorio haitiano “es que él no puede salir hasta que no renuncie, él es un presidente electo”.

          Will Episcopals Change Their Masculine Words for God?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

For some watching (and blogging and tweeting) the debate on the floor of the Episcopal Church's triennial General Convention this week, it sounded as if someone were trying to give God a sex change.

Bishops, priests and lay delegates, who have been meeting in Austin since July 5, are discussing legislation that would make changes to the Book of Common Prayer aimed at stripping away some of the masculine descriptions of God in favor of more "expansive" language.

During the hours of debate over the weekend, delegates butted heads over tradition, theology and what it means to be welcoming. One argued that children of all genders should hear language that allows them to feel made in God's image. Another speaker, a delegate from an urban parish that serves poor families, said the masculine nature of God is crucial for children growing up without a father.

"Both sides are worried about alienating the people we've got and not being welcoming to the people we don't have," said the Rev. Cathy Tyndall Boyd, rector of St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Williamsburg, Va.

Some also had practical concerns: Revision opponents suggest that the approximately $1.9 million it would cost to develop the language, with an expected $8 million to print and distribute the new books, could be better spent on evangelism, racial reconciliation efforts and training new church leaders.

The discussion has attracted attention outside of the Episcopal Church as well as within it: Traditionalist Christians, including those whose own denominations are considering similar changes, worry that gender-neutral terms for God undermine the concept of the Trinity.

But the Rev. Ruth Meyers, a liturgy professor at Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, Calif., said the proposal shouldn't be seen as an attempt to neuter God.

"This is not about eliminating language about God the Father, about Jesus the Son," she said. "This is about expanding the language of God so every person can see and understand they are made in the image of God."

Indeed, many comments from the convention floor stemmed from concerns other than gender.

The book needs clearer language on salvation and atonement theology and the stewardship of creation, some argued. A prayer currently said over the bread and wine during the sacrament of the Eucharist describes humanity as "rulers of creation," which could be changed to "stewards of creation."

Delegates also suggested broadening the cultural perspectives in the prayer book. One priest lamented a prayer of thanksgiving that opens with "Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage," a line she said could alienate Native Americans.

Concerns were also raised over what some said were inadequate Spanish, French and Haitian Creole translations of the prayer book.

The Episcopalians aren't the most progressive denomination when it comes to language. Twenty years ago, they issued a supplement to the prayer book that incorporated gender-neutral language, but by comparison, the Unitarian Universalist Association is expected to make all language in the church bylaws gender neutral at its General Assembly this summer. Judaism's Reform movement has used gender-neutral language in its prayer book since 2007.

But perhaps because Episcopalians represent such a wide range of political and theological beliefs, they consider the prayer book the "primary symbol of our unity." Nothing riles them more, they often joke, than tinkering with it.

Originally published in 1549 after England broke from the Roman Catholic Church, the book is used in varying versions by the worldwide Anglican Communion. The Episcopal Church last updated the Book of Common Prayer in 1979, revising the 1928 version, with its "thees" and "thous," by adding modern prayer language and new rites. The changes inevitably drew outrage from traditionalists.

Sensitive to these feelings, delegates have embraced the painstaking deliberations at convention, said the Very Rev. Samuel Candler, chair of the prayer book legislation committee.

"There is the movement of the spirit even in parliamentary procedure and even in committees," he said.

If so, the spirit moves very slowly. Passing a resolution requires approval from both houses of the church's bicameral governing body — the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, the latter consisting of clergy members and lay people elected from each diocese — which adhere to a strict order of debate.

On Saturday (July 7), the House of Deputies passed an amended version of the prayer book resolution. It now awaits action from the bishops. If the measure passes there without any changes, the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music will begin a three-year listening tour, conducting surveys and holding meetings with the denomination's roughly 2 million members. A new prayer book would have a trial run in 2024 and would not go into official use until 2030.

The Rev. Mary Sulerud knows well the challenges of retooling divine language. While attending Virginia Theological Seminary in the 1980s, she participated in trials for supplemental liturgies that used gender-neutral terms for God and highlighted the role of women in church history. Some of those prayers were used in Enriching Our Worship, the liturgical resource developed in the 1990s as a companion to the Book of Common Prayer.

Now canon for discernment and congregational vitality in the Diocese of Maryland, Sulerud said the response then, as now, was mixed.

"Some people welcomed it. Some people were barely hanging on. It was complicated." {eoa}

          Casi 17.000 venezolanos pidieron refugio en Brasil durante primer semestre - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Casi 17.000 venezolanos pidieron refugio en Brasil durante el primer semestre de este año, lo que supone un 20 % más que todas las solicitudes presentadas a lo largo de 2017, según un balance de la Policía divulgado hoy por el portal G1.

La cifra refleja un agravamiento del éxodo de venezolanos que huyen de la crisis económica, política y social que padece su país y deciden buscar una vida mejor en naciones vecinas.

Entre enero y el pasado 22 de junio, las autoridades brasileñas recibieron 16.953 pedidos de refugio en el empobrecido estado de Roraima, fronterizo con Venezuela y puerta de entrada de la inmensa mayoría de los venezolanos que optan por afincarse en el gigante sudamericano.

De acuerdo con la Policía Federal, el 97 % de ese total son solicitudes de venezolanos y el resto son de cubanos (155), haitianos (139) y de otras nacionalidades (133).

Mayo fue el mes en el se registró un mayor número de solicitudes de refugio por parte de venezolanos (4.054), coincidiendo con las elecciones presidenciales en las que el presidente Nicolás Maduro fue reelegido.

Esos comicios fueron condenados por varios países, entre ellos Brasil, por su falta de "legitimidad y credibilidad", la existencia de "numerosos presos políticos" y por no contar con una "observación internacional independiente".

En todo 2017, las autoridades brasileñas recibieron 13.583 pedidos de refugio de venezolanos, cifra que entonces ya representó un aumento expresivo frente a los 2.048 de 2016 o los 253 de 2015.

Michel Temer, presidente de Brasil

Se calcula que en el último año y medio han entrado a Brasil unos 50.000 venezolanos y que cerca de 400 cruzan diariamente la frontera.

La mitad de esos 50.000 están en Boa Vista, capital de Roraima, estado declarado en "situación de vulnerabilidad" desde el pasado 15 de febrero por el presidente brasileño, Michel Temer.

Desde entonces se han puesto en marcha medidas de asistencia humanitaria, en las que participan el Ejército y organismos internacionales, para los inmigrantes venezolanos, que incluyen su traslado a otros puntos de Brasil.

En este sentido, cerca de 700 inmigrantes ya han iniciado su proceso de "interiorización" en ciudades como Sao Paulo, la mayor del país, Río de Janeiro, Cuiabá, Manaus, Igarassu y Conde.

Temer afirmó recientemente que las ayudas dirigidas a los inmigrantes venezolanos continuarán y se comprometió a "mejorar las condiciones de vida de los habitantes de Roraima", cuyos servicios públicos se han visto desbordados.

          USCCB supports judge’s ruling for detained asylum seekers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Washington D.C., Jul 11, 2018 / 11:11 am (CNA).- The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops applauded a recent federal ruling that barred the Trump administration from detaining asylum seekers without case review.

“The ruling is extremely important for the roughly 1000 asylum seekers who are currently detained,” said Ashley Feasley, director of policy for the USCCB’s Migration and Refugee Services office.

“It provides them with an opportunity for release while their asylum case is pending, or to a hearing to prove that they merit release during the pendency of their case,” she told CNA.

On July 2, U.S. District Judge James Boasberg ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement grant asylum seekers a personal case review and to release them while the hearing process is underway.

According to the Washington Post, immigration advocacy groups claim that asylum seekers have been detained indefinitely despite ICE policy requiring that their cases be reviewed within seven days, or that they be released pending a hearing. Reportedly, immigrants have been jailed for months or years at ICE facilities in five major cities: Detroit, El Paso, Los Angeles, Newark, and Philadelphia.

Boasberg’s ruling gave asylum seekers provisional status for class action litigation. He also restricted ICE from holding applicants beyond seven days if their claims had not been personally reviewed and if a written explanation has not been given for the extended detention.

Citing a 2009 directive from the Department of Homeland Security, he said the degree of risk an undocumented asylum seeker poses must be determined on a case-by-case basis. He said immigrants should be released if they can prove credible danger in their home country.

“This Opinion does no more than hold the Government accountable to its own policy, which recently has been honored more in the breach than the observance. Having extended the safeguards of the Parole Directive to asylum seekers, ICE must now ensure that such protections are realized,” he said in a 38-page opinion piece.

Feasley said an accessible asylum program, which personally reviews the claims of endangered migrants, is critical. She said these asylum seekers are traumatized and further detention could worsen the degree of trauma.

“It is important that those fleeing persecution and seeking protection are able to access justice and have their claims evaluated in a thorough and individual way,” she said.

“In many instances, asylum seekers have experienced trauma and being in detention is harmful and can be re-traumatizing.”

The most recent ruling is in response to a class-action lawsuit instigated by the American Civil Liberties Union. The plaintiffs began with nine undocumented immigrants from countries like Haiti and Venezuela. The case now represents over 800 detainees and has gained support from the advocacy group Human Rights First.

The ACLU filed the lawsuit in March after discovering higher levels of detention rates during the Trump administration. The advocacy group said detention rates increased to 96 percent during the first eight months of Donald Trump’s presidency – a significant difference from the detention levels which were recorded to be under 10 percent in 2013.

Ansly Damus, a 41-year-old Haiti teacher, is among the plaintiffs. He won an asylum petition twice, after he sought protection from a violent gang, but has been detained for over 16 months while his case is appealed by the government.

For immigrants who have proven that they are not a risk to the country, Feasley said the practice of detainment is very costly compared to other alternative actions.

“Detaining asylum seekers who have demonstrated community ties and are not safety risks is also a very costly practice to the U.S. taxpayer as detention beds run approximately $134/day whereas family placement is free and alternatives to detention are significantly cheaper.”

She also expressed hope that Boasberg’s would aid future asylum seekers and the immigration process.

“It also likely could affect future asylum seekers and their ability to access release from detention while their case is pending.”

En estos días vi una crónica según la cual una patrulla del Ministerio de Obras Públicas habían arrestado a una banda de delincuentes. Esto me asombró. La eficiencia del Ministerio iba hasta la protección en seguridad. Tienen ahora también la misión de proteger vidas y propiedades. El texto decía que “Miembros de la Seguridad Vial de la Comisión Militar y Policial del Ministerio de Obras Públicas, en la autopista Duarte, apresaron este jueves a tres integrantes de una banda que pretendían realizar atracos en la región del Cibao”.
Según la lectura comprensiva, los empleados del Ministerio son policías o tienen un gajito de la institución. Entre la desinstitucionalización que presenta el país la más preocupante es la que viven las instituciones encargadas del orden público y la seguridad del Estado.
La violencia e inseguridad que aterra a los ciudadanos tiene una patita en esta situación. Muchos miembros de estos organismos se desempeñan fuera de sus instituciones en labores diversas que van desde encargados de seguridad de empresas privadas, espalderos de empresarios o damas vinculadas a funcionarios. En la mayoría de los casos tienen un doble salario, aunque el correspondiente al cuerpo policial o militar es cobrado por un superior. El permiso de laborar extracuerpo es una ayuda salarial de doble vía (oficial-policía) pero secuestra un servidor de su área legítima. Estos adscritos fuera de su jurisdicción legal son trabajadores eficientes y correctos que a la callada hasta ascienden de rango por gravedad, merced al escalafón correspondiente a la antigüedad en servicio. Esta es una práctica antigua que cumple con militarizar zonas civiles, mejorar el salario de subalternos y ayudar en la protección a los allegados al gobierno en turno. Esta Comisión Militar y Policial de Obras Púbicas podrá estar cargada de buenas intenciones, pero no es el camino correcto.  Es como si también encargáramos a ese ministerio de vigilar la frontera porque la Armada no ha podido controlar eficazmente el tráfico de haitianos. Los organismos castrenses carecen del equipo y entrenamiento adecuado tanto para atender los confines del país y mucho menos para manejar lo relacionado con la población civil. Otro secuestro institucional es el que ejecuta el Ministerio de la Presidencia contra las atribuciones del Ministerio de Interior y Policía y la Seguridad Ciudadana, por eso seguiremos dando tumbos. La concentración de poder en manos de superministros daña al Estado. Pulso difícil militares vs. políticos gubernamentales.

          Haitianos queman su país con saña ancestral      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Santo Domingo;- Con la misma saña, mismos resentimientos y furia de los ancestros de final de los siglos XVllI y XlX,  las masas haitianas se arrojaron contra la propiedad privada para que no quedara el menor vestigio de algo de valor, dejando a su paso destrozos que nadie está en capacidad de cuantificar y  proyectar su impacto futuro en la economía de Haití.
Esta vez por otros motivos, el pueblo haitiano-semejando a sus antepasados de finales del siglo dieciocho y diecinueve, y empujados por una cólera propia de una naturaleza esclava-, tomó las calles, caminos y veredas para no dejar piedra sobre piedra.
Como en los tiempos de Jean Francois, George Bissaou y Tousaint Louverture, una horda juvenil del siglo veintiuno explosionó como volcán dormido cuya erupción se llevó a su paso supermercados, agencias de ventas de vehículos, tiendas, empresas, industrias, el comercio y residencias familiares.
Se cuenta que miembros de la misión militar de la embajada americana en Puerto Príncipe negada en el pasado a utilizar los viejos helicópteros dominicanos de la guerra de Vietnam se empujaban para abordar los aparatos que fueron a rescatar el personal criollo en nuestra embajada.
Aunque se aduce que la gota que derramó la copa para que detonarán las pobladas fue el anuncio de un incremento en los precios de los derivados del petróleo y la colocación de aranceles a los productos de primera necesidad importados, como parte de los acuerdos con el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI), la furia y la prolongación en el tiempo del saqueo, tomó otro matiz que ha puesto al borde de la renuncia al Primer Ministro Jack Guy Lafontant, a quien el jefe de los diputados ha tildado en un tuit como buen profesional de la medicina pero que su tiempo pasó, mientras el presidente Jovenel Moise pareciera que tiene su barba en remojo. Aunque revocó el incremento de precios de los artículos de primera necesidad, el presidente haitiano no pudo detener el fuego en la pradera haitiana.
Con una población casi similar a República Dominicana de cerca de 11 millones de habitantes que se reparten el territorio de 27,750 kilómetros cuadrados, Haití ha vuelto a llamar la atención sobre el escalofriante nivel de pobreza extrema y del atraso educativo, factor este último que afecta a casi la mitad de los mayores de edad.
Cuando los países de Centroamérica y el Caribe dan muestras de avances en el uso de tecnología de la Información y la Comunicación, Haití aparece rezagada.
De cada 100 habitantes, solo 10.9 tiene acceso a internet y 59.4 de cada cien haitianos posee un teléfono móvil, cuando el promedio de celulares en la región es de 86 de cada cien latinoamericanos.
La esperanza de vida en Haití estimada  por el Banco Mundial en apenas de 62 años cuando el promedio de vida al nacer en América es de 75 años, mientras por cada 100 mil nacidos mueren 350.
Es el de Haití el índice más alto de mortalidad de nuestra región, sólo comparable con algunas naciones de Africa.
Con una población que está asentada mayoritariamente en los principales centros urbanos y casi 5 millones de almas viviendo en condiciones precarias de salubridad, con falta de trabajo y el 24.4 por ciento de la población infantil obligada a trabajar para ayudar a sostener su familia, Haití es un volcán activo que amenaza hasta su vecino más cercano: República Dominicana.
De 196 países que aparecen en el ranking del ingreso per cápita, Haití ocupa el puesto 173, debido a que sus habitantes solo reciben unos 600 dólares al año, equivalentes a un dólar por día. Cada ciudadano haitiano tiene una deuda contraída de 131 euros acumulada por las distintas administraciones públicas.
Buena parte de las personas que aparecían en los videos en las manifestaciones de protestas era joven, como es la población de ese país, donde más del 50 por ciento tiene menos de 23 años.
Haití es un país donde la desigualdad sigue profundizándose: Entre el 2005 y el 2014, la moneda haitiana se depreció en promedio, de 2% a 3% anual, pero entre el 2014 y el 2015 la depreciación alcanzó 14,5%.
La inflación se aceleró y ascendió a 14,4% a principios del 2016, en particular por el alza en los precios de los alimentos de producción nacional a causa de la sequía. Se prevé que la pobreza, que ya afecta dos terceras partes de la población, seguirá aumentando, de acuerdo con datos de la Organización Panamericana de la Salud (OPS).
 La economía haitiana importa más bienes y servicios que lo que exporta y uno de sus mayores ingresos proviene de las remesas de la diáspora, que se estima en 2 mil 100 millones de dólares anuales.
Después del terremoto de 2010 se incrementó la cooperación internacional, pero en los últimos años se ha registrado una disminución significativa: el programa de PetroCaribe se redujo casi a la mitad debido a la caída de los precios del petróleo venezolano; en el 2010, Haití dejó de percibir 1,800 millones de dólares y  488 millones de dólares en el 2015.
Los problemas medioambientales haitianos son agudos, especialmente por la deforestación y erosión de los suelos como consecuencia de la tumba de árboles para leña de carbón. A tal extremo ha llegado el daño al medio ambiente que esas acciones han cruzado la franja fronteriza dominicana.
Debido a factores como el crecimiento de la población, la pobreza y el elevado nivel de consumo de leña y carbón vegetal, la deforestación es generalizada. Los recursos hídricos del país, que antes eran excedentarios, ya no bastan para satisfacer las necesidades de una población en aumento.
Los efectos del cambio climático y el calentamiento global sitúan a Haití en una posición vulnerable frente a los huracanes y a fenómenos climáticos regionales como los ciclones, sequías y terremotos.
El Terremoto de 2010
Los efectos por el terremoto del 12 de enero de 2010 fueron devastadores, pues las pérdidas se estiman en 7 mil 700 millones de dólares, siendo el sector privado el más perjudicado, en tanto el número de víctimas fatales se calcula en 220 mil personas, 300 mil heridos, 1 millón 300 mil refugiados y más de medio millón de haitianos emigraron a República Dominicana y otros países.
 Los datos ofrecidos por los organismos extranjeros de socorro registraron más de 105 mil viviendas destruidas totalmente, 208 mil dañadas y 1,300 escuelas inservibles.
Aunque los países amigos de Haití y los organismos multilaterales de cooperación cuantificaron las necesidades en la “Cumbre Mundial sobre el Futuro de Haití, Solidaridad más allá de la Crisis”, celebrada el 2 de junio de 2010 en República Dominicana, en poco más de 12 mil 200 millones de dólares en 10 años, Haití no recibió toda la ayuda prometida.
 El proceso de Refundación de Haití recibió recursos de la cooperación por 5 mil millones de dólares. La ayuda extranjera recibida ha sido calculada por pasadas autoridades haitianas en solo el 48 por ciento de la prometida.
 El exprimer ministro de Haití Laurent Lamothe lamentó en su momento que su país no recibiera el 52 por ciento restante de la cooperación prometida “pues se pudo haber hecho 20 veces más de lo realizado”.
 El panorama crítico antes de 2010,  vino a empeorar la situación después del terremoto, lo que ha dejado un sedimento que sirve de caldo de cultivo para que Haití se levante por las medidas fondomonetaristas, dejadas sin efecto por el gobierno.

          Ballet Hispanico Comes to The Vail Dance Festival      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, brings its bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance to the Vail Dance Festival for the first time in August 2018.

"We are thrilled to be part of this renowned festival that is meeting the need for diversity head-on with its innovative pairings of artists of all genres," said Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro.

"Ballet Hispánico has been a trail-blazing force in so many ways," said Vail Dance Festival Artistic Director Damian Woetzel. "I am so pleased to have this wonderful opportunity to feature the company at the Festival in several performances which share different aspects of their unique power as an American dance treasure."

The Company will be a part of four unique programs:

NOW: Premieres, August 6, 2018 at 7:30pm, Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater

A collection of new pieces commissioned by the Festival from some of today's most renowned and emerging choreographers will be performed by ballet, modern, and contemporary dance artists. The evening will include a new work by emerging ballet choreographer Claudia Schreier, who has set the piece on Chris Bloom and Dandara Veiga from Ballet Hispánico.

Dance for $20.18, August 7, 2018 at 7:30pm, Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater

A mixed-bill evening for everyone with guest artists from the 2018 Vail Dance Festival, including Eduardo Vilaro's Danzón, which The New York Times called a "crowd pleaser." Initially evolved from Haitian contradance, the danzón has been called the official dance of Cuba. Mr. Vilaro has taken this traditional and quintessentially Cuban dance form and reinvented it with contemporary language to construct a joyous celebration of music and movement.

Dancing in the Park, August 8, 2018 at 5:30pm, Avon Performance Pavilion

Ballet Hispánico presents its family-friendly En Familia performance to the extraordinary stage of the Avon Performance Pavilion at Nottingham Park. The Company will present excerpts from their repertory in an exploration and celebration of the diversity of Latino cultures through the dialogue of dance. Children from Celebrate The Beat's Pop Hop Camp will also perform.

Ballet Hispánico, August 9, 2018 at 6:30pm, Vilar Performing Arts Center

The evening's program will feature Gustavo Ramírez Sansano's CARMEN.maquia.An exhilarating contemporary take on Bizet's beloved composition that Dance Magazine called "divinely elegant," the piece was recently featured on PBS' Lincoln Center at the Movies. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco.

For tickets and more information, visit www.vaildance.org.

Ballet Hispánico, the premier Latino dance organization in the United States, brings individuals and communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through dance. Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground.

The organization's founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today, Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company, whose vision of social equity, cultural identity and quality arts education for all drives its programs.

Ballet Hispánico, a role model in and for the Latino community, is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education.

Eduardo Vilaro joined Ballet Hispánico as Artistic Director in August 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. In 2015, Mr. Vilaro took on the additional role of Chief Executive Officer of Ballet Hispánico. He has been part of the Ballet Hispánico family since 1985 as a dancer and educator, after which he began a ten-year record of achievement as founder and Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago. Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico's legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America's changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education.

Mr. Vilaro's own choreography is devoted to capturing the spiritual, sensual and historical essence of Latino cultures. He created over 20 ballets for Luna Negra and has received commissions from the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Grant Park Festival, the Lexington Ballet and the Chicago Symphony. In 2001, he was a recipient of a Ruth Page Award for choreography, and in 2003, he was honored for his choreographic work at Panama's II International Festival of Ballet. Mr. Vilaro was also inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame in 2016 and was awarded HOMBRE Magazine's 2017 Arts & Culture Trailblazer of the Year.

The outdoor splendor of the Colorado Rocky Mountains is the backdrop each summer as the unique mountain town of Vail plays host to a collection of the world's finest dancers. Under the artistic direction of Damian Woetzel, the Vail Dance Festival, now in its 30th year, has become renowned for its artistic excellence, unique programming, commissioned works, and one-of-a-kind artistic collaborations. More than twenty thousand people from around the world descend each summer on Vail, a vibrant cultural destination, for the Festival's two-week residency. The Festival's spirited atmosphere transforms the village into a culturally-rich environment that is inviting to dance aficionados and newcomers alike. In addition to regular performances, the Festival features robust community programming and education events, drawing on its roster of visiting artists, in addition to year-round personnel who focus on arts education in the Vail Valley. In the fall of 2016, the Vail Dance Festival presented for the first time a season outside of its Colorado-base, with a series of acclaimed performances at New York City Center entitled Vail Dance Festival: ReMix NYC. The Vail Dance Festival is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation, which since 1981 has fulfilled its mission to enhance and sustain the quality of life in the Vail Valley by providing leadership in arts, education, and athletics. The Vail Valley Foundation's work is made possible by generous individuals and support from Cornerstone Partners GMC, EverBank, and Vail Resorts. For more information, visit www.vaildance.org.

The Vail Valley Foundation is a nonprofit with the mission to enhance and sustain the quality of life in the Vail Valley by providing leadership in arts, education and athletics. The organization is known for its work in education with YouthPower365, which provides programming to more than 4,200 local children with early childhood, K-12, and scholarship programs. The Vail Valley Foundation also provides the Vail Valley with several of its most treasured annual events, such as the GoPro Mountain Games, the EverBank America's Winter Opening, the Birds of Prey FIS World Cup races, the Colorado Classic cycling race, the Vail Dance Festival and the Whistle Pig Vail concert series.
