Hay mucho desconocimiento a nivel internacional, de la lucha por la independencia de Puerto Rico. Esto muchas veces lleva a nociones y críticas simplistas y a veces hasta negativas hacia la lucha boricua sin tratar de entender la gran complejidad de una lucha que por más de un siglo se ha librado dentro de lo que es vivir en una colonia.Una lucha que ha costado muchas vidas en masacres y asesinatos por los EUA, largos encarcelamientos en prisiones del imperio, casos fabricados, señalamientos y carpeteos (recopilación de información sobre personas vinculadas a organizaciones políticas relacionadas al Independentismo), constante seguimiento por agencias represoras federales y locales, aparte del continuo hostigamiento de independentistas.La imposición del estado colonial ha sido un crimen de lesa humanidad por parte del imperio estadounidense, robándole no solo su fuerza trabajadora, sus recursos y su soberanía, sino intentando despojarle de su propia historia e identidad afro-taína-caribeña. La lucha por la independencia en Puerto Rico ha sido y sigue siendo una batalla cuesta arriba.Incluso en la CELAC (Comunidad de Estados Latinoamericanos y Caribeños), organismo que intenta unir en acción todos los países del continente americano alejándolos de la injerencia de los Estados Unidos y Canadá, no fue hasta esta reciente Cumbre, la 3ra desde que la CELAC fue creada en el 2011 por iniciativa del fenecido presidente Hugo Chávez, que hubo presencia activa de independentistas puertorriqueños. Recordemos que en la Cumbre del 2011 en Caracas, el grupo musical puertorriqueño Calle 13, junto al afamado director de orquesta venezolano, Gustavo Dudamel, abrieron la conferencia con la canción ‘Latinoamérica’ de los puertorriqueños, sin embargo, no había una silla para esa nación.La estrategia de EUA siempre ha sido la de aislar a PR y sus luchas, de sus vecinos. Por décadas, PR fue visto como un apéndice de los EUA, fuera del contexto latinoamericano y caribeño. Es por eso que lo ocurrido este pasado 28 de enero durante el primer día de la reunión de jefas y jefes de estado tiene gran importancia.La Cumbre, celebrada en Costa Rica tenía por tema ‘América Latina, libre de pobreza extrema’. Durante su discurso, el presidente de Nicaragua Daniel Ortega, luego de enfatizar que la CELAC debe seguir sus políticas progresistas y estar atentos a las conspiraciones de EUA, dando como ejemplo el continuo bloqueo a Cuba y los planes desestabilizadores contra Venezuela, llamó al líder del Partido Independentista Puertorriqueño Rubén Berríos, diciendo: “¡Venga, Rubén, concluya mis Palabras!”Berríos entonces expuso la necesidad de que la CELAC actúe en solidaridad con la independencia de PR y la liberación del prisionero político independentista Oscar López Rivera quien lleva ya 34 años en prisión.Al finalizar, el presidente de Costa Rica y anfitrión del evento, Luis Guillermo Solís, regañó a Ortega por no seguir los “procedimientos” de la Cumbre. A lo que Ortega le respondió “usted habla de procedimientos” pero “decidió darle la palabra a la OEA, el instrumento de colonia de los yanquis”. Ortega luego dijo: “la voz de Puerto Rico es la voz de Nicaragua”. Días después nombró a Berríos asesor para Nicaragua en asuntos de descolonización.Este incidente, junto a los desacuerdos de algunos países sobre apoyar o no la independencia para Puerto Rico, muestra la mano oculta de Estados Unidos tratando de intervenir en este foro. De hecho, como no hubo el consenso obligatorio, la declaración final adoptada sobre PR fue la misma de la Cumbre del 2014 en La Habana: “Reiterar el carácter latinoamericano y caribeño de Puerto Rico y, al tomar nota de las resoluciones sobre Puerto Rico adoptadas por el Comité Especial de Descolonización de las Naciones Unidas, reiteramos que es asunto de interés de CELAC”.Sin embargo, el muro del silencio sobre Puerto Rico se rompió, al menos parcialmente cuando la discusión entre Ortega y Solís fue ampliamente cubierta por medios internacionales, excepto en EUA donde solo CNN reportó algo. Pese a todo, la lucha por la independencia ahora es parte de las tareas de la CELAC, cuando Cuba, Venezuela y Ecuador, este último presidiendo pro témpore el organismo, avalaron la propuesta de Nicaragua de incluir la exigencia de soberanía para Puerto Rico.Crisis en Puerto RicoLa realidad de la gran crisis social, financiera y económica por la que atraviesa la nación puertorriqueña en estos momentos hace que este incidente tenga una especial connotación. Esta crisis ha sido provocada no por las políticas erradas del actual gobierno que de hecho son enormes, sino por el estado colonial, con la consecuente falta de soberanía para poder resolver sus problemas en beneficio de su pueblo.Larga es la lista de los gigantes problemas, destacándose entre ellos, las privatizaciones de agencias y servicios públicos, altísimo costo de vida, aumento del desempleo, violencia generada mayormente por el incremento en el mercado de drogas, y una enorme deuda pública que según un amplio reportaje en El Nuevo Día del 5 de febrero, sobrepasa los $160 miles de millones (elnuevodia.com). A esto se suma el desangre de la población, con un porcentaje de las/os migrantes, la mayoría entre las edades productivas de 20 a 44 años. Según el periódico arriba mencionado, en el 2013 salieron de PR más de 73,000 mayormente hacia estados del sur de EUA. Al mismo tiempo, el gobierno de PR, trata de incentivar la mudanza hacia PR de ricos negociantes estadounidenses.El NYT en un artículo del 6 de febrero titulado “Mientras la clase media huye, Puerto Rico trata de atraer a gente rica” (As Middle Class Flees, Puerto Rico Tries Luring Rich People) ilustra una de las políticas erradas del gobierno, que con la excusa da traer inversionistas y empleos, básicamente tendrá como consecuencia la sustitución de la población muy semejante a lo ocurrido en Hawaii. El artículo despierta una gran indignación cuando se sabe que miles de puertorriqueñas/os se van de la isla precisamente por falta de trabajos y por el gran costo de vida. Esta sustitución ya está viendo resultados políticos y sociales extremadamente negativos en Culebra, Vieques y en la isla grande (PR).Es por esto que la lucha anticolonial necesita más que nunca la solidaridad internacional. Como finalizó Berríos: “hacer la independencia nos compete a los puertorriqueños, a la América Latina y al Caribe sin embargo, le corresponde ser solidaria con nuestro derecho a la independencia y con nuestra exigencia a los EUA de ponerle fin al coloniaje”.¡Viva Puerto Rico libre!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Haiti is devastated. The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, one of the poorest in the world, is getting poorer.Some 3.67 million people — 35 percent of all Haitians — are food insecure. They don’t have enough money to guarantee enough food for their households. This flows from the fact that 60 percent of all Haitians live on less than $2 a day, according to the U.N. Development Program.Haitians march in Brooklyn, Nov. 6While some neighborhoods in Port-au-Prince, especially Cité Soleil, have large concentrations of poor people, most of the poverty in Haiti is found in rural areas. Heart-wrenching reports describe people with treatable cuts or contusions dying from their wounds because they don’t have the few dollars to pay for a doctor. (haitiliberte.com/erasing-the-dead/)The Haitian government’s National Coordination of Food Security office calculates the country’s inflation rate at 22.6 percent. It reports that drought, caused by global warming, has lowered crop production in many parts of the country by as much as 12 percent.For the past two months, hundreds of thousands of Haitians all over the country have marched, protested, built barricades and road blocks, shut down schools, factories and transportation, and kept up the pressure even as the cops killed over 35 people and wounded over 200, according to Amnesty International. (tinyurl.com/sk5p2y5/)The Haitian people are not just protesting because they are hungry. They want jobs, health care and housing to replace the hundreds of thousands of homes destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. The New York Times, in a long, detailed Nov. 4 editorial, acknowledges the “rampant corruption” and “lawlessness and endless other indignities” that have “have steadily worsened the lives of people.” While the Times does fault the U.S. government for only calling for “dialogue” and not showing much concern, it proposes “long-term international assistance” to get Haiti “back on its feet.”Haiti has a long experience with international “assistance.” Former President Bill Clinton, who proclaimed his long-term “connection” with Haiti, was basically in charge of spending $13 billion of international relief aid raised after Haiti’s devastation from the 2010 earthquake. He made certain that almost all of this vast sum never passed through Haitian hands. It circulated through U.S. businesses and banks with a strong presence inside the Capitol Beltway, as Jacob Kushner details in the Oct. 11 Guardian. (tinyurl.com/ty9te5v/)Kushner also details a $70 million port project created by the U.S. Agency for International Development to replace the port facilities destroyed by the 2010 earthquake. Haitians had no input into the design or location of this new port. The project fell apart, and USAID was so embarrassed that it didn’t inform its Haitian partners.What Haiti needs is not aid — designed more to benefit the countries granting it than Haiti — but reparations controlled by the Haitian people, used to remedy all the damages inflicted over nearly four centuries by U.S. and French imperialism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

to go further BelarusEurope – Central Asia RSF_en “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown News News Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Belarus BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation News Reporters Without Borders has expressed its concern at the closure until April 2003 of opposition daily Noviye Izvestia.The organisation said it feared that it meant a further cutback in Russian opposition newspapers under the guise of financial difficulties.Oleg Mitvol, majority shareholder of the Noviye Izvestia (owning 76% of the paper) announced the suspension of the newspaper on 25 February.An editorial staff protest on 21 February prevented the newspaper from appearing the day after managing director and editor in chief Igor Golembiovsky was dismissed by Oleg Mitov from his position of managing director, officially over financial problems.Several articles had recently appeared in the newspaper criticising President Putin or saying that “people no longer have confidence in Putin”, including one on 20 February by journalist Vladimir Pribilovsky on the cult of Vladimir Putin.”Sidelining the editor in chief of Noviye Isvestia and the temporary shutdown of one of the only newspapers critical of the government – that denounces war in Chechnya and human rights violations – appears too useful to the Kremlin in the run-up to elections to be a coincidence”, said Reporters Without Borders General Secretary Robert Ménard.All this was taking place in a climate in which the Kremlin was re-taking control of opposition media, a policy orchestrated by Vladmir Putin since he took power. “It is very worrying to see the extent to which the liberal press is slowly but surely shrinking in Russia,” he added. Reporters Without Borders recalled that Noviye Izvestia was part of the media empire of the exiled oligarch Boris Berezovsky whose main media holdings, known for their independent approach to news, were systematically taken over by the Kremlin since Vladimir Putin took power. In 1997 Boris Berezovsky handed over control of the majority of Noviye Izvestia’s shares to Oleg Mitvol.

Lenders Offering More Second Chances With Increased Number of Subprime Loans September 23, 2015 10,156 Views Previous: Court Dismisses BNY Mellon’s $600 Million RMBS Suit Against JPMorgan Chase Next: San Francisco Fed President Says Rate Hike Later in 2015 Would Be ‘Appropriate’ Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Tagged with: Credit Scores Equifax HELOCs Home Equity Lines of Credit Reverse Mortgages Subprime Mortgages Lenders across the U.S. appear to be offering borrowers a second chance at obtaining a mortgage by originating more subprime mortgages for borrowers with credit scores under 620.Equifax’s recent National Consumer Credit Trends Report found that subprime mortgage originations soared higher during the first five months of 2015.First mortgages, home equity installment (HE) loans, and home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) all experienced an uptick in subprime originations compared to the same period last year. The amount of first mortgage originations to borrowers with subprime credit scores increased 30.5 percent, HE loans rose 29.5 percent, and HELOCs rose 20.4 percent.”It appears that American lenders still believe in second chances, and without subprime loans, there would be no second chances in the housing market.” Equifax explained that although subprime orginations are rising, overall, these originations are only a small portion of total originations across the mortgage lending sector. Additionally, the subprime origination numbers remain below figure seen before the Great Recession.HELOCs lending is slower than some of the other options, the report noted. Only 7,800 of the 525,000 HELOCs originated in the first five months of 2015 were considered subprime.”The data make it very clear that almost nobody is getting HELOCs if they don’t have a credit score above 620,” said Amy Crews Cutts, chief economist at Equifax. “But we are seeing a rise in first mortgage and home equity installment loan origination subprime shares. It appears that American lenders still believe in second chances, and without subprime loans, there would be no second chances in the housing market. The underwriting on mortgages today is tough on everyone and we believe that the subprime lending that is happening is being underwritten even more carefully.”The data also found that lenders are working to reduce risk involved with subprime mortgage originations.”Despite the continuing rise in overall subprime originations, banks are still greatly limiting their high-risk exposure,” Cutts said. “The credit score of the borrower at the 10th percentile of newly originated first mortgages today is 650. For HELOCs, it’s 700. Looking back to the start of 2006, the credit score of the 10th percentile loan was 575 for a first mortgage and 645 for HELOCs. I think we are still a long way from the Goldilocks level of ‘just right.'”Key data on subprime originations from the Equifax National Consumer Credit Trends Report:Of the 3.26 million first mortgages originated year-to-date through May, 143,800—or 4.6 percent—were issued to consumer with an Equifax Risk Score below 620.Of the more than 280,700 HE loans originated year-to-date, 30,900—or 1.5 percent—went to those with low credit scores.As HE installment loan originations rose 22.4 from a year ago and surged to their highest level since 2008, subprime originations also jumped sharply, by 29.5 percent. The average origination loan amount of a new subprime HE loan also climbed, hitting $22,455 in May 2015—up 11.6 percent from May 2014.Click here to view Equifax’s National Consumer Credit Trends Report.
