first_imgCuando el New York Times comienza a promover el “estado de derecho” en otro país, como lo hizo en un artículo de opinión el pasado mayo, y otros medios de comunicación corporativos meten la cuchara, siempre debemos prestar atención.Eso es para que podamos saber qué país el imperialismo estadounidense se está preparando para desestabilizar.Esta vez – una vez más – es Nicaragua, donde Estados Unidos pregona la necesidad de reemplazar al presidente Daniel Ortega y el gobierno sandinista.Nos corresponde señalar que el nicaragüense mencionado por la prensa estadounidense como la “oposición” a lxs sandinistas es Juan Sebastián Chamorro, un “portavoz” de la “Alianza Cívica por la Justicia y la Democracia”. Su tía es la expresidenta Violeta Chamorro, cuyo gobierno pertenecía a una coalición de partidos políticos derechistas respaldados por Estados Unidos que luchaban contra las fuerzas sandinistas de liberación nacional en la década de 1990.Desde mediados del siglo XIX, los EUA han afirmado el “derecho” de su Doctrina Monroe a colonizar y explotar a Nicaragua como su propio patio trasero. Y desde el principio, lxs nicaragüenses se han resistido, incluyendo la rebelión revolucionaria encabezada por el general Augusto C. Sandino en las décadas de 1920 y 1930.Cuando el Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional triunfó en 1979, aún tuvo que vencer a la posterior guerra secreta orquestada por la CIA que involucraba actos terroristas, así como a una campaña de propaganda patrocinada por Washington.Ahora EUA intenta nuevamente socavar a Nicaragua, aprovechando las protestas que se tornaron violentas después de que el gobierno anunciara una disminución planificada en los beneficios de la seguridad social. Más tarde, el gobierno rescindió la movida.Hay mucha evidencia de que la violencia fue promovida por la oposición reaccionaria y proimperialista. Pero el informe del 29 de mayo de Amnistía Internacional (AI), afirmaba que el actual gobierno sandinista estaba involucrado en “asesinatos extrajudiciales” y “represión”.Esta ciertamente no es la primera vez que AI ha servido como un megáfono de propaganda para los intereses de EUA. Pero esta vez, Camilo Mejía, un nativo de Nicaragua, y preso de conciencia de Amnistía Internacional en 2004, ha respondido de forma convincente.Mejía no fue encarcelado por Nicaragua. Fue encarcelado por EUA como veterano de la guerra de Irak, opositor y objetor de conciencia.En una “Carta abierta a Amnistía Internacional”, Mejía enfatiza: “El informe [de AI] se alimenta de reclamos de quienes están en un lado del conflicto y se basa en evidencia profundamente corrompida; en última instancia, ayuda a crear el espejismo de un estado genocida, generando a su vez más sentimiento antigubernamental a nivel local y en el exterior, y allanando el camino para una intervención extranjera cada vez más agresiva”.Mejía enfatiza que Estados Unidos se opone al gobierno sandinista por sus intentos de mantener la independencia del “orden económico neoliberal impuesto por los Estados Unidos y sus aliados”.Mejía señala que las mejoras realizadas por este gobierno de liberación nacional incluyen el acceso universal a la educación primaria, secundaria y universitaria; y un modesto y excelente sistema de atención médica accesible para todos. Él señala: “Aproximadamente el 90 por ciento de los alimentos que consumen los nicaragüenses se produce en Nicaragua, y cerca del 70 por ciento de los empleos provienen de la economía de base, en lugar de las empresas transnacionales”.Mejía dice que “la audacia del éxito” del gobierno sandinista “volvió a poner a Nicaragua en el punto de mira de la intervención estadounidense”.Seguramente, nosotros en EUA no necesitamos ningún recordatorio de la propaganda abierta estadounidense que manipula el pensamiento público, piense en la demonización del Iraq independiente, Libia y Siria.Y es muy común que las agencias encubiertas estadounidenses manipulen lo que pueden ser demandas válidas de personas en otro país, en cooperación con los reaccionarios de la clase dominante. La clase dominante estadounidense siempre intentará convertir los movimientos progresistas en su opuesto: para desviar a las personas de un posible camino revolucionario.Nuestro deber en EUA es resistir esta propaganda capitalista abierta y encubierta. Nuestro deber es exponer implacablemente todos los trucos del imperialismo y oponernos a todos los crímenes del imperialismo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgBy Arielle RobinsonMarietta, Ga.Formerly incarcerated people from the Cobb County Adult Detention Center and loved ones of those currently incarcerated spoke out about the horrid conditions at a town hall meeting at Life Church here on Dec. 9. Seven people have died in the jail since last December.Notorious Cobb County Adult Detention CenterSince Sept. 23, the CCDC has been on lockdown, which was a common topic during the meeting. Inmates are not able to use phones to communicate with loved ones and lawyers.  The inmates report not seeing the sun for days at a time.Officially, CCDC officials claim the center is on lockdown for nearly three months because deputies were assaulted by three inmates.At the town hall, a woman named Priscilla, who is close to inmates at the CCDC, said a white deputy called a Black inmate the N-word. The inmate defended himself, telling the guard that he cannot call him racial slurs.  According to Priscilla, the officer responded by saying he “hated everyone.” She said the same deputy turned to a group of Latinx inmates and called them the S-word and then turned to a group of white inmates and called them “crackers.”A physical altercation then ensued, which led to the lockdown.A man who said he had been released from CCDC the night before the town hall said the lockdown is scheduled to end Jan. 1. He also pointed out that inmates have spent nearly 24 hours a day in their cells since the lockdown, and it is maddening for them. The man said that many are in CCDC waiting to be charged with something and plan to plead guilty when they see a judge just to be able to get out.A lawyer in Cobb County said that since the lockdown, she has had to contact the loved ones of inmates to tell them directly to pay their loved one’s bail because the inmates can not contact them on the jail phone.The father of an inmate, 33-year-old Bradley Emory, who died in the jail in March, noted that his son showed signs of being suicidal, though the jail took very little action to ensure his son did not commit suicide.Emory’s death was ruled a suicide, but his father did not know that for a very long time. The father said the jail refused to tell him what was going on with his son after it was obvious his son was in trouble.A lawyer for the family of 36-year-old Kevil Wingo observed that CCDC did not give Wingo the care he needed after he had a medical emergency in his cell, leading to his death.A woman reported that her 25-year-old son was in CCDC for violating probation and is very depressed. She said the reason for the violation was because he could not afford to pay CCDC fees.A man spoke about how officials in CCDC willfully neglect prisoners who have medical emergencies. He added that even after an inmate indicated he needed to use the bathroom, guards did nothing and let him go to the bathroom on himself. Some are calling for the resignation of Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren. Since he started as sheriff in 2004, 41 people have died in CCDC custody. That number averages 2.7 deaths each year. The seven deaths this year alone far exceed that number.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgOn the heels of a campaign rally at the site of the 1921 Tulsa, Okla., white-mob massacre of Black Wall Street, President Trump continued a tour of white supremacy symbols with a July 3 rally and fireworks at Mount Rushmore. This monument to settler colonialism is in the Black Hills, the Paha Sápa, also known as He Sápa — lands sacred to the Lakota Nation, lands also historically significant to the Cheyenne, Arapaho and Omaha Nations. Indigenous protesters blocked roadway to Trump rally at Mount Rushmore, July 3.Under the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty, the Black Hills are unceded territory of the Oglala Lakota. Mount Rushmore is 25 miles southwest of Rapid City, S.D., and about 40 miles west of Pine Ridge Reservation. Before the event, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Chairman Harold Frazier said, “The president is putting our tribal members at risk [of COVID] to stage a photo op at one of our most sacred sites.“Visitors look upon the faces of those presidents and extol the virtues that they believe make America the country it is today. Lakota see the faces of the men who lied, cheated and murdered innocent people, whose only crime was living on the land they wanted to steal.” (Indian Country Today, July 2)Lakota treaty defenders drove vans across Highway 16 at the checkpoint for rally traffic from Keystone, S.D., to the monument, then disabled them. About 150 treaty defenders — youth, families and elders — danced, chanted and flew flags of the Oglala Nation, the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and the American Indian Movement. Signs called for ending 500 years of genocide, stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline and upholding the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie to return the Black Hills to the Lakota people. (Rapid City Journal, July 3) Chants heard included, “Land Back” and “We Can’t Breathe.”They blocked Trump-supporters traffic for about three hours before cops and S.D. National Guard attacked with pepper spray and arrested 15 people. (Rapid City Journal, July 4)Fireworks in high-risk forest on unceded landsAt his rally, Trump said, “We will never abolish our police or our great Second Amendment.” (Rapid City Journal, July 3) The Second Amendment confirmed the legal basis of settler militias, historically used to kill Indigenous people and hunt down escaped enslaved Africans.Trump said, “Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children.” Under a new executive order from Trump, people who deface or tear down statues will face a minimum of 10 years in prison.The president, who removed protection from Bears Ears and the Grand Staircase Escalante, and threatens the Grand Canyon with uranium mining, announced a new “National Garden of American Heroes.” The garden will feature statues of several presidents and a range of proposed historic figures, from Davy Crockett and Billy Graham to Harriet Tubman, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Antonin Scalia.After the speeches, fireworks were set off at the monument, in the middle of a forest where fireworks had been banned for years due to the danger of a forest fire.The Indian Wars and Mount RushmorePresident Ulysses Grant gave permission in 1874 for Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer to lead a 1,000-man military expedition with prospectors and journalists into the Paha Sápa, where they “found” gold — the world’s only veins of rose gold. A gold rush ensued; within a year 1,000 miners invaded. (tinyurl.com/ybcv6xnd) Newspapers demanded annexation. Congress offered money to the Lakota, who said, “The He Sápa are not for sale. One does not sell their holy land.” (Tim Giago, Rapid City Journal, July 3)Congress stole the Black Hills; Grant sent in the U.S. Army and started the genocidal Plains Indian Wars. On June 25, 1876, the Lakota, Dakota, Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho Nations defeated the 7th Cavalry at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, when those Indigenous nations were attacked at their annual winter convocation. The buffalo herds were brutally destroyed, and in 1889, Congress cut rations in an attempt to starve out the Lakota. The war ended with the 1890 Wounded Knee Creek massacre of Big Foot’s band, who were starving and attempting to reach the reservation in a brutal northern Plains winter.Gutzon Borglum, a member of the KKK, carved the faces of four presidents into the mountain, known as Six Grandfathers to the Lakota, from 1927 to 1944. Mount Rushmore depicts two slaveowners. And Abraham Lincoln, the president who issued the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation, ordered the mass hanging of 38 random Dakota prisoners in the 1862 Dakota uprising against the settler state of Minnesota.‘The Black Hills are not for sale’In a legal fight begun in the 1920s to reinstate the Lakota Nation’s claim to the Black Hills, the U.S. Court of Claims awarded $17 million in 1979 for the Black Hills and added $85 million in interest. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the Court of Claims $102 million award on June 30, 1980.But the Lakota Nation again said, “The Black Hills are not for sale.” The nine tribes constituting the Lakota Nation have never accepted the money, which with interest is now equal to about $2 billion.July Fourth, commemorating the “independence” declaration of the settlers in the 13 colonies against England, represented the settlers’ ability to take over the slave trade in North America and to continue to send militias into Indigenous nations to murder, enslave and steal the lands, to create more settlements and sell more enslaved African people. Beginning in 1776, the settlers flooded into Ohio territory, which the Crown had forbidden them to do.During the highway blockade, organizer Nick Tilsen, Oglala Lakota of NDN Collective, tried to negotiate with the National Park Service on the removal of treaty defenders and the vans parked in the middle of the road. “We ain’t going nowhere,” Tilsen said. “This is our land. This has been our land for thousands of years.” (Indian Country Today, July 4) Treaty defenders ask supporters to contribute to the Black Hills Bail and Legal Defense Fund (bhlegalfund.org).As the uprising in solidarity with Black Lives Matter shows no sign of slowing down, Indigenous and Black solidarity deepens and lifts these connected struggles.Tromblay’s heritage is Huron nonstatus and mixed Southeast nations undocumented.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago 9.7 Million Homeowners Underwater Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The number of underwater borrowers continues to fall, but that was about the only good news Zillow had to report in its latest look at negative equity.The company released Tuesday its Negative Equity Report for the first quarter, revealing an estimated 9.7 million homeowners continue to owe more on their mortgage than their home is worth. That number, down from about 9.8 million in Q4 2013, represents about 18.8 percent of mortgage-paying Americans, according to Zillow.Conservative estimates from the company call for a negative equity rate of 17 percent by this time next year as home value growth moderates.While the continuing downward trend in underwater rates is a welcome sign of improvement in the housing sector, the company notes that the “effective” negative equity rate, which includes homeowners with 20 percent or less equity in their homes, remains elevated at more than one in three.”The unfortunate reality is that housing markets look to be swimming with underwater borrowers for years to come,” said Zillow’s chief economist, Dr. Stan Humphries.With so many borrowers lacking enough equity to comfortably sell their homes and afford a down payment on a new one, Humphries expects inventory to remain choked, driving home values higher and making affordability a greater concern.What’s more, Zillow found that homes priced in the bottom third of home values nationwide have a greater negative equity rate, with 30.2 percent of that population currently underwater compared to 18.1 percent of those in the middle tier and just 10.7 percent in the top tier.For those underwater borrowers who happen to be in the lower tier of home values, listing their home will remain difficult without engaging in a short sale or bringing cash to the closing table—another contributor to the supply shortage and a major obstacle for buyers in search of starter homes.”It’s hard to overstate just how much of a drag on the housing market negative equity really is, especially at the lower end of the market, which represents those homes typically most affordable for first-time buyers,” Humphries said.
