Maicao Bad Time

Leon Tolstoi: Any reform imposed by violence not corrected anything evil: good judgment does not need violence. Maicao is frequently plagued by interminable droughts, frequent suspension of the electricity service, the unbridled corruption of some of its leaders, the restrictive legal measures from its commercial activity and rates of unemployment only comparable to those of countries subjected to the rigors of a war economy. Maicao has gone through all crises; the mild, severe, the most serious; yesterday, those of today and those of always; which originate in nature, which are born by national Government decisions that produce by foreign Governments measures however, evil hour of Maicao today is truly macabre: violence is killing his people and is killing it in large quantity without being yet to nobody hurts, or at least without that nobody does something serious and concrete to stop the wave of deaths that have been tabled in the last few months, but in a special way in the last few days. When the 2009 went by his third month presented a sad fact that shook the entire society: two assailants killed Jeison Martinez Arzuza, a young man of 17 years to steal his bicycle. Criminals don’t even expressed the typical and bleak up hands, this is a robbery. On the contrary, put into practice a somber modus operandi consisting of shooting his victim to then pick up the bicycle lying beside the dying hopeless.

A life annihilated and thousands of dreams destroyed by an object that is achieved in one hundred thousand pesos in stores throughout the city. It is worth saying that the towers of the Majayura neighborhood community reacted and was about to capture murderers, but this time they won and finally were able to reach safety. As a note of black humor, and if it is consolation, we complete the story saying that criminals, pressured by pursuers left abandoned the object you just steal. Later several ruthless joined forces to kidnap the young Yensi Alexandra Menco and take it to a lonely place on the outskirts where, after raping her, murdered her mercilessly. His college teammates organized a protest March and expressed the repudiation of this new crime against youth and women. Two related cases are the most poignant, but, unfortunately, they are only two among many of this 2009 will be remembered by her but tragic. Suicides, traffic accidents have occurred in recent months (what a coincidence, but everyone is involved, at least, a motorcycle) and selective death carried out by ruthless thugs specialized in meet impeccably awful commissioned his cruel customers (and, again, what a coincidence, but the infamous two-wheeled vehicle is present in almost all the murders).

Ten killed in a week is to worry. But even more worrying is know a sad reality: there is nothing that allows us to think that the maicaeros security will improve in the coming days. Time to take seriously, let well, seriously, the security of Maicao. Alejandro Rutto Martinez is a prestigious writer italo Colombian, whose articles are widely disseminated on the internet.

European Environment Agency

Waste and contaminated soil Act was adopted on 6 June by the Congress, where will return to its ratification, after the vote on Wednesday, with 237 votes in favour, 0 against, and two abstentions of 239 senators present. During the debate, both the PP and CiU have expressed their unease by the fact that Bill has been processed by urgent procedure by its volume of amendments and have demanded changes in the system so that legislation of this magnitude and depth – as the popular Senator Jose Valin – can be counted with the negotiation process and enough with the aim of promoting reflection better laws. More than 400 million in the law machines has come down to where I could reach, ensures Domingo Jimenez Beltran, former Director of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and coordinator of the platform returns, supported, among others, by the Trade Union CCOO and the Confederation of consumers and users. It is not what we would have liked, but given resistances of the economic sector and the pressures that we have received, we believe that it is an important step. We must congratulate the legislator, he said. According to returns, the SDDR has been implanted successfully in countries such as Germany and bears on a significant increase in the management of beverage containers, whose annual marketing, about 51 million, according to its figures, only recycle 30%. The SDDR will end up implementing because the consumer wants it and because it provides common sense.

It rewards the responsible consumer, said Jimenez. Contrary to the draft platform, headed by Ecoembes, Ecovidrio, managers of waste in the GIS, the Spanish Federation of food industries and drinks and the Spanish Confederation of Commerce, denounces the additional cost of the system for trade and industry, which estimated at 465 billion euros. His approach also points to spending that every consumer contributes to the system for the advance payment of the returnable container. In countries in which already operates the SDDR used mechanized tanks delivered to the consumer a receipt by return containers, redeemable for money in establishments or as a credit on the next purchase. For the implementation of the callback and return system, the law dictates the degree of fulfilment of the minimum targets for reuse and recycling established by European directives shall be evaluated beforehand.

Ecoembes-Ecovidrio argue that Spain surpasses those objectives and that already in 2008, according to the latest data of the Ministry of the environment, is recycling the country 59% of containers, index which has increased year after year. Figures for 2008 from the Office of the EU, EUROSTAT, statistics on the treatment of municipal waste, brought to Spain, with 14% of waste recycled, below Germany (48), Belgium (35) and United Kingdom (23) and over Portugal (9) or Italy (11), among others. The Act also provides deadlines for the Elimination of plastic bags for single use, until its reduction by 80% in 2016.

Seek Equality

On 20 and 21 April will be a public day of equal access to safe abortion. This event will be held at the Congress Plaza Hipolito Yrigoyen and Viceroy Ceballos. The vision is optimistic because during the year 2011 favorably modified the scenario for the legalization of abortion. Since the beginning of the debate in Argentina, in Brazil discussion on penal reform and the average penalty in Uruguay where decriminalizes abortion up to the twelfth week of gestation undertake the feminist group that fights for the decriminalization of abortion. Feminists favour abortion believe that most effectively ended in the aftermath of pregnancy unwanted, maternal mortality and risks to health is the democratization of information on the use of misoprostol, easy to use, economical, effective medication and that it can be used by women themselves. The idea of the organizers of the event is to carry out a rally where pharmacies where women seek to buy misoprostol are identified. Each day thousands of women miscarry in Argentina, which know how to use pills to abort and accessing them can do so without risk.

However not going to all equal, it depends on the place where they live, the racism that there is in that place, the money and the information that have. In the end, the experience is very different. The goal of the rally is to observe forms of discrimination in access to the medication that according to who is essential to save the life of women preventing hemorrhage postpartum, which in Argentina is legal but is not available in pharmacies and is cheaper than a surgical abortion and therefore can’t be denied to women who seek him in pharmacies. Misoprostol, known in Argentina as Oxaprost and Mexico as cytotec, are pills that women around the world use to abort in the comfort of their homes until the twelfth week of gestation. Although it should sell in pharmacies and shops presenting a prescription, there are shops where the national identity document, double or triple recipes, ask for a medical diagnosis, or places where it is sold at more than $300 box 16 pills, others where not sell complete box, or where misoprostol is not sold to girls, young, migrant, or African-American, or simply refuse to sell the drug. The feminist group responsible for the event considered timely and necessary to deepen and strengthen the arguments that consolidate and ensure the parliamentary debate and the implementation of public policies focused on the needs of women and girls, in line with the progress achieved during the last ten years regarding the human rights of women.

Middle East

The head of the mafia Communist, Hugo Chavez, is the richest man in the world. Anyone, with the exception of the Jihad promoters Arab sheikhs, enjoys an annual capital of more than $200 billion dollars to do with him whatever you win. It is not surprising that its capacity of conviction flexing any. According to the economic data, Chavez invests barely a third of Venezuelan GDP in their country, with the rest promotes communism, supporting related Governments, extremist groups, and buying arms. It is for this reason that Venezuela is today among the countries poorest in South America, when before his rise to power and without the exorbitant current value of petroleum was one of the richest.

His extravagant personal luxuries are peanuts compared with the gifts that makes his allies to subdue about Latin America. Evo Morales much did billionaire before the entry to the Palacio Quemado, but the invoice will not charge easily. Bolivia is not Venezuela, ideological and geographically the country is clearly defined and divided. Nor is the same passive resistance of Venezuelans against Chavez that hardened Bolivians against Morales. Twenty-six years of democratic life in Bolivia are being destroyed and nobody wants to return to live under the rod of the Governments de facto, but Morales is de facto ruling! The Bolivian President and his supporters have two options: leave power peacefully and returning to their homes to enjoy their ill-gotten, fortunes that tradition nobody prosecute them, or face violently with the people. Nothing indicates that the President seek the first alternative.

Debts with Chavez forced him to resist until death as versa the revolutionary script. For similar reasons to those outlined, approximately 40 years South American peoples requested relief feeling powerless against communist abuses.

Mr Jaime de Althaus Guardenas, in its programme the N time interviewed three candidates for the Congress of the Republic: Luis Bedoya de Vivanco, Luis Delgado Aparicio and Javier Diez Canseco. This interview I want to transcribe the intervention of Mr Luis Bedoya, because it seems interesting to me. The intervention of Javier Diez Canseco completely radical leftist, not called my attention. Luis Delgado’s either. Luis Bedoya de Vivanco reads as follows: I believe that the approach that should be used, going by several sides. First presentation of Mr Humala, evidenced a style that us predicts how it will govern, does not adhere to the rules of the game. Certain rules of the game for discussion, questions and answers was agreed.

When played to him ask questions, what I did was simply continue reading his speech, their proposals and ask the person questioned if I was agree with that or not. It is a way of mocking the rules of game. When corresponded you to answer questions, what he said: that is not in my plan of Government, and took his paper and continued with his libretto. I.e., a person who does not adhere to the agreed rules, which takes you back to the agreements, is already anticipating how credible as a candidate, may be the proposals presented. Second aspect: it is a candidate, which presents a Government plan that is published and that Javier Diez Canseco here has brought it, and when they begin the criticisms that you have made, to ask the first questions when you start your program, get to make a statement, that said, that does not say what contains her Government’s plan, and which undertakes with the Peruvians to do something different. Third: I think Ollanta Humala founded the nationalist party a few years ago, but that party has lost totally its identity, today, not even presented as the nationalist party in elections.
