Aquí hay un plan

first_imgPlanificación. Es algo que hacemos todos los días. A nivel personal, planificamos nuestras comidas, nuestro trabajo, nuestro servicio de limpieza, nuestro tiempo libre. A veces, nuestros planes se ven interrumpidos por sorpresas de bienvenida, a veces se ven frustrados por circunstancias imprevistas. Luego hacemos nuevos planes.A medida que la actividad humana se ha vuelto más compleja con el crecimiento de la tecnología y la organización social, también lo ha hecho la necesidad de planificar. El desarrollo de la computadora, afortunadamente, ha hecho que sea mucho más fácil analizar los datos y planificar con anticipación.En este momento, una pandemia peligrosa está corriendo por todo el mundo. El país más rico de todos, uno con gran desarrollo tecnológico, se enfrenta ahora al nuevo coronavirus COVID-19. Tal como está escrito, el 23 de marzo, Estados Unidos tiene la terrible distinción de ser el país con el mayor número de casos nuevos de COVID-19 en el mundo: 1.524 y sigue creciendo. (worldometers.info/coronavirus)China, donde estalló el virus por primera vez, parece haber contenido la epidemia, con solo 39 casos nuevos.Por supuesto, hay muchas más personas en China que en los EE. UU. Una mirada a la cantidad de casos por millón de personas, que incluyen casos activos y aquellos que murieron o se recuperaron, muestra otra gran diferencia. La cifra para China es de 56 casos por millón de personas. Para los EE. UU. es 106 por millón, casi el doble de la tasa.El gobierno de EE. UU. y las autoridades locales tuvieron tiempo de sobra para planificar esta epidemia. No debería haber tomado a nadie por sorpresa. Pero las cifras muestran que no se hizo lo suficiente, y como resultado las personas se enferman y mueren.Y quién sufre más también está claro. Si bien el virus no conoce límites de clase, la gran mayoría de los que mueren carecen de atención médica adecuada, tienen trabajos que los ponen en contacto con muchas otras personas a diario y/o ya están en mal estado de salud debido a afecciones anteriores. En otras palabras, la mayoría son trabajadores.Al mismo tiempo, Estados Unidos atraviesa un colapso económico que incluso los funcionarios del gobierno comienzan a llamar depresión. Las medidas tomadas en un intento de limitar la epidemia sin duda han acelerado la implosión económica, pero la economía estaba empezando a ceder incluso antes.La propagación del virus, su impacto mortal y el colapso económico apuntan a una cosa: la falta de planificación.¿Qué tipo de planificación se necesita?Este es un país capitalista, rico e imperialista cuya clase dominante explota a los trabajadores no solo aquí sino en todo el mundo. Esos gobernantes saben cómo planificar, ¡porque el sistema existente requiere mucha planificación para mantenerse en funcionamiento!¿Pero para qué? Para maximizar las ganancias. Cuando las ganancias se ven amenazadas, como lo están en cada recesión capitalista cíclica, el primer pensamiento de la clase dominante es cómo proteger sus inversiones. Todo lo demás es secundario.No es solo que los capitalistas son malas personas. (Bueno, la mayoría de ellos son realmente horribles). Es que su relación con su riqueza los obliga a ser cínicos y codiciosos y a tomar decisiones que son en interés de su capital privado y no en interés de la sociedad.A medida que las crisis económicas y de salud se agravan, más trabajadores van a pensar qué tipo de sociedad necesitan. La creciente popularidad del socialismo sobre el capitalismo, especialmente entre los jóvenes, ha encontrado expresión en la campaña de Sanders.Pero se necesitará mucho más que eso para hacer mella en este sistema, que depende completamente de la explotación de la mano de obra para beneficio privado.Los medios de producción fueron construidos por los trabajadores. Los capitalistas nunca colocaron un ladrillo, araron un campo o cosieron una prenda. Han expropiado la riqueza construida por la clase trabajadora.Esa riqueza debe ser liberada para que toda actividad económica pueda planificarse para satisfacer las necesidades de la gente. Ese sistema liberador se llama socialismo. ¡Acostumbrémonos a reclamar esa palabra con orgullo!Las elecciones van y vienen. El mayor sufrimiento de las grandes masas de trabajadores golpeados por el virus de la crisis capitalista solo aumentará. El momento de centrarse en construir el movimiento para el cambio revolucionario es ahora.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Jailed Tibetan filmmaker appeals for help

first_imgNews June 2, 2021 Find out more April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on China RSF_en News Organisation “My trial has started. There is no good news I can share with you. It is unclear what the sentence will be.” So says Tibetan filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen in a letter he recently wrote to his family in Chinese from his prison cell in the western city of Xining. A cousin who is a refugee in Switzerland has confirmed its authenticity. Passages have been erased in the accompanying copy because they refer to family matters. “At a time when US President Barack Obama is about to visit China, we appeal to the Chinese authorities for a goodwill gesture regarding Dhondup Wangchen, who has been held since March 2008 and whose ill health is not compatible with prolonged detention,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Given that his only crime was to interview Tibetans for a documentary, his release should be approved without delay,” the press freedom organisation added. “A prison sentence would an insult to the spirit of openness that was affirmed during the Beijing Olympic Games.”Dhondup writes in his letter: “A few days ago I had a terrible nightmare and I struggled with the thought that something terrible has happened at home. I am worried about my aged father and mother. I am very much worried. Would it be possible to inform me about their situation? Please be frank with me. With regard to my situation there is no need to worry. I will face my fate. While I am aware that a release will be very difficult and I may remain here for a longer period there is a feeling that I have failed to be a more caring son for my parents. My trial has started. There is no good news I can share with you. It is unclear what the sentence will be.”Dhondup’s wife, Lhamo Tso, told Reporters Without Borders: “My husband has committed no crime. President Obama is regarded as a champion of peace. I hope that he will intercede on behalf of prisoners, including my husband.” She is appealing to the international press to support Dhondup.In his letter, Dhondup voices concern about his wife and four children, who sought refuge in India after he began filming interviews in Tibet.Dhondup’s Chinese lawyer, Li Dunyong, was prevented from representing him during a hearing in July and since then he has been forced to drop the case. During one of their few meetings, Dhondup told Li that he had been tortured and that he had hepatitis B.The interviews that Dhondup filmed in Tibet were used for a documentary that was screened during the Beijing Olympics.

Greek television journalist detained by the army

first_imgNews October 8, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Greek television journalist detained by the army Organisation April 28, 2021 Find out more to go further Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News Follow the news on Turkey TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders has called for the immediate release of a Greek television journalist and his engineer who have been arrested and detained by the Turkish army in the north of the country. Yiannis Kanelakis, of independent televison Mega was arrested along with his colleague Anestis Moutafis on 7 October at Caykara, near Trabzon. Robert Ménard secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders called on interior minister Abdulkadir Aksu to give Reporters Without Borders and the Greek consulate an explanation for the arrests. He also asked to know what the journalists were accused of. The press freedom organisation reminded the Turkish authorities of their undertaking to respect the European Union’s democratic principles on press freedom and in particular not to pursue abusive cases against journalists for “insulting the nation.” The television journalist was reporting on the Greek Pontiac people living in the Pontos area of Turkey. He was accompanied by Stefanos Taximanidis, president of the Greek Pontiacs Federation and his assistant, Stathis Taxidis. Police had arrested the team on an earlier occasion on 5 October after they were denounced by a local resident for “making Pontiac propaganda.” The four were picked up by the army on 7 October and placed in detention. Stefanos Taximanidis and Stathis Taxidis were later released but the journalists were still held. Their film tapes and papers were confiscated. The Greek consulate in Turkey said they understood the authorities planned to check the contents of the three tapes to ensure they did not contain anything that would be “insulting” to Turkey.center_img April 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor News Receive email alerts April 2, 2021 Find out more Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Help by sharing this information Newslast_img read more

Holden’s Bill to Put California’s Farms First Passes Final Hurdle

first_imgGovernment Holden’s Bill to Put California’s Farms First Passes Final Hurdle Published on Thursday, September 12, 2013 | 1:51 am Lawmakers today gave final approval to Assemblymember Chris Holden’s (D-Pasadena) bill to help California farmers and improve the state’s agricultural economy on September 10. The Assembly voted unanimously in favor on final amendments.Under Holden’s AB 199, state agencies – such as public hospitals, prisons and public schools – would be required to purchase agricultural products from California companies if the price is equal to or less than the lowest out-of-state company. AB 199 also encourages all public schools, school districts, and public colleges to purchase agricultural products grown within the state whenever possible.“This legislation doesn’t just benefit farmers; it provides safe, healthy foods for our public schools and hospitals. It just makes sense for California’s public institutions to choose locally-grown products,” explained Assemblymember Holden. “We’re helping create opportunities for our farmers and a new appreciation for local food helps stimulate the economy.”California is the nation’s leading agricultural state with farm revenues of nearly $43 billion and its farms and ranches produce more than 400 crops on 81,500 farms that employ 800,000 laborers. California farms produce a variety of year-round crops including, broccoli, carrots, lemons and oranges, avocadoes, strawberries, potatoes, celery, cabbage and lettuce.Barry J. Bedwell, President of the California Grape and Tree Fruit League: “This bill will assist in introducing to more of the state’s residents a wide variety of affordable and nutritious products grown in California. We thank Assemblymember Holden for his leadership on this bill which we believe will not have long-lasting benefits for California farmers but for all Californians as well.”This bill is supported by the California Farm Bureau Federation, California Apple Commission, CA Association of Wheat Growers, CA Bean Shippers, CA Dairies, Citrus Mutual, Pacific Egg and Poultry Association, California Grape and Tree Fruit League, CA Grain & Feed Association, Pear growers, and the California Black Chamber of Commerce.AB 199 now goes to Governor Brown for signature. He has until Oct. 13 to sign or veto. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

New Bill Encourages Homeownership Counseling

first_img A new measure passed by the House Financial Services Committee recently could help more low-income households achieve their dream of homeownership.The bipartisan legislation called the Housing Financial Literacy Act requires the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide a 25-basis-point discount in upfront Federal Housing Administration (FHA) single-family mortgage insurance premiums for first-time homebuyers who complete a housing counseling program to help them sustain homeownership.The bill was introduced by Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) and Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH).“Motivating first-time homebuyers to seek vital pre-purchase counseling and equipping them with the much-needed financial skills and tools to make informed financial decisions benefits their families, the surrounding neighborhood, and our entire economy,” Beatty said. “I am pleased to see my bill move one step closer to becoming law, and many thanks to my Democratic and Republican colleagues for their support.”The Bill still needs to be passed by the Senate before it goes to the President’s desk to get signed into law. According to a CNBC report, if passed, this legislation would allow first-time homebuyers, especially those from low- or moderate-income households, who opt for an FHA loan to pay less.Currently, borrowers who take an FHA loan are required to pay mortgage insurance to the agency as well as an upfront mortgage insurance premium, since these loans are often taken by buyers with low credit scores and pose an increased risk for lenders. Borrowers today, pay 1.75% of the base loan amount towards mortgage insurance.However, if the bill passes the Senate vote, they would have to pay only 1.5% of the base loan amount towards these charges, if they opt for housing counseling, the CNBC report indicated.”The Department of Housing and Urban Development, which FHA is part of, should make sure the counseling is designed well,” Pete Mills, SVP of Residential Policy for the MBA told CNBC. “Face-to-face would be better than online.” Sign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / New Bill Encourages Homeownership Counseling Tagged with: FHA Homebuyers Homeownership House Financial Services Committee Households HUD loans mortgage Subscribe Previous: Single-Family Zoning’s Impact on Climate Change Next: Vacancy Taxes: Pros and Cons FHA Homebuyers Homeownership House Financial Services Committee Households HUD loans mortgage 2019-07-24 Radhika Ojha The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post About Author: Radhika Ojha Share 1Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.
