FARC-EP de Colombia: Entre partes iguales

first_imgAbril 3 de 2015Sentimientos y posiciones políticas aparte, es hora de construir la Paz. Esa es ni más ni menos, la responsabilidad de La Mesa de Conversaciones y por eso es merecedora de toda la solidaridad.Reconocer esa realidad, los 51 años de confrontación armada, en esta última etapa, el convencimiento guerrillero que la guerra no puede ser el destino de Colombia como lo proclamaba el inolvidable comandante Jacobo Arenas y la decisión plasmada en el primer documento oficial de las FARC-EP, el Programa Agrario de los Guerrilleros, que muestra con claridad el objetivo revolucionario siguiendo el camino posible, el armado que impusieron con el ataque a Marquetalia o el pacífico si existen las condiciones.El establecimiento y sobre todo las transnacionales imperiales necesitan la paz, no con fines nobles ni pensando en el bienestar social, requieren garantizar la explotación de los recursos mineros y energéticos ubicados en áreas de fuerte presencia guerrillera al igual que las tierras necesarias para el desarrollo de los megaproyectos agroindustriales dirigidos a producir agro-combustibles.El Acuerdo General para la terminación del conflicto y la construcción de una paz estable y duradera, firmado el 26 de agosto de 2012 permitió el inicio público de los diálogos de paz en La Habana y se basa en la bilateralidad, es decir obligaciones y deberes de las partes firmantes, el Gobierno nacional y las FARC-EP.Al no haber, vencedores ni vencidos, nos encontramos en un diálogo entre partes iguales, signado por la búsqueda de acuerdos en los diferentes puntos y aspectos. Por tanto todos los intentos de imposición, de unilateralidad, deben considerarse ataques a La Mesa de Conversaciones. Estos son, ni más ni menos, entre otros, el Marco Jurídico para la Paz, el referendo al cual no le acaban de encontrar acomodo, el comando de transición y la promovida justicia transicional.Desde sectores de la derecha y su extrema se vocifera contra La Mesa de Conversaciones, se sindica al gobierno santista de entregar el país a la guerrilla, al terrorismo, solo ven posible un proceso de sometimiento. Igual, fracciones que se autoproclaman de izquierda acusan a la insurgencia de entregar principios y traicionar al pueblo por comprometerse con los diálogos. En medio la mayoría que trabaja por la paz.La discusión no es por legalidad y legitimidad, en ese campo nunca habrá acuerdo, pues nos separa la concepción ideo política.Oímos, leemos, vemos la perorata de las encuestas que rechazan cualquier acuerdo en pie de igualdad, porque “el pueblo colombiano no acepta que la guerrilla desarrolló una lucha con política, son bandidos”, lo que nunca se aclara y es conocido por los pobres de la tierra, esa inmensa mayoría nacional, es que dichas afirmaciones proceden del deseo de las minorías enriquecidas a costillas del pueblo.Tampoco nunca dicen ni reflejan la realidad de millones y millones de habitantes de Colombia, hombres y mujeres inconformes con la situación económica, política, social, cultural y medioambiental del país, gente que resiste valerosamente y lucha por sus ideales y diversas reivindicaciones que acerquen a un cambio para disfrutar de vida digna producto del trabajo, educación y salud, vivienda decente y orgullo patrio por soberanía e independencia, sin abandonar, ni olvidar los objetivos revolucionarios.Corresponde encauzar las fuerzas sociales y unirlas en un solo torrente hacia los necesarios cambios estructurales que posibiliten la paz con justicia social, tejer, enlazar, puentear todos los esfuerzos populares nos conduce a los objetivos democráticos, pacificadores y soberanos. Las diversas maneras de expresión, la creatividad y el poder transformador lo hacen posible. Los esfuerzos por invisibilizarlas continuaran, es parte de la lucha.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

To live like Fidel, to fight like Fidel

first_imgExcerpted from a talk given at the Dec. 1 Workers World Party meeting in New York City.There are as many positive adjectives to describe Fidel as there are patterns of snowflakes: Revolutionary. Marxist/Leninist. Internationalist. Communist.  Environmentalist. Father. Husband. Leader. Statesperson. Strategist.  Anti-imperialist. Scientist. Unifier. Comandante.To all those adjectives you could add “brilliant” and it would be no exaggeration whatsoever.But one word stands out as we witnessed the Cuban masses in the millions come out to say their final farewell to Fidel: Beloved. Fidel was beloved by the Cuban people. And not just by the Cubans, but by all of us around the world who yearn and struggle for our liberation.But let me clarify: Fidel was not loved because “Love trumps hate.”Fidel was loved because he built a revolution. Fidel was loved because his skills and talent not only brought socialism to an island 90 miles from imperialism, but also because he was able to build the foundation that would make the revolution last long after he no longer walked the earth.Fidel was loved because, above all, his priorities and sacrifices were for the good of humanity, never for himself.Born August 13, 1926, in Birán in the southeast part of Cuba, Fidel came of age during the brutal rule of Fulgencio Batista. Becoming president of Cuba in 1940, Batista governed until 1944 and returned to power in 1952 through a coup. He ruled Cuba with an iron fist in one of the most bloody and repressive dictatorships in Latin America.Batista, of course, had the complete support of the U.S. government. As with the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean, the U.S. considered Cuba a place to rob by extracting its resources for the profits of the multinational corporations.But on January 1, 1959, all that came to an end, when Fidel and the Revolutionary Army entered Havana, in victory.Fidel’s pillar of unitySeveral important meanings are emerging from the death of our beloved comrade. One of those is unity.First and foremost, the Cuban people are declaring that they will remain united to continue Fidel’s obra (his work). And President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela and President Evo Morales of Bolivia affirm that they will continue to unite Latin America to defend Cuba’s sovereignty.This does not come as a surprise as, indeed, one of the important pillars of Fidel’s work was unity.To achieve victory against the brutal Batista dictatorship, the task for Fidel was to unite as many social forces as possible. Before the triumph of the Revolution, the Latin American movement had argued that the U.S. would never tolerate a socialist revolution in the region, and that it was impossible to defeat Batista’s regular army, even with guerrilla tactics.Fidel proved them wrong. But to Fidel, there was more than guns. He built a political coalition instead of solely focusing on the armed struggle. No one fought for unity like Fidel. He sometimes had to retreat.  But he never ceded on his fundamental principles.This is how Fidel was able to begin a political process that transformed the island of Cuba from one terrorized by torture and killings, dispossession, extreme poverty and exploitation, to one where the workers rule, where wealth is redistributed not to the banks or corporations, but back to the people.And this is why the Cuban people love Fidel.Fidel is loved for Cuba’s agrarian reform, for establishing one of the world’s most ambitious literacy campaigns and educational systems, for developing a free world-class health care system that even bourgeois organizations commend.Fidel is loved because the peasants, who had been starved and beaten, the African Cubans, who had been the brutal victims of colonial and imperialist racism, for the first time in history came to the forefront as actors in history.The people were with Fidel’s revolution, and, for the first time in Cuba, the workers were the agents of change, not the bourgeoisie. In fact, the revolution got rid of the bourgeoisie altogether!This is why the imperialists hate Fidel, this is what earned him forever the ire of imperialism. For ousting the ruling class from Cuba, the imperialists would never forgive Fidel.Fidel’s exemplary leadershipFidel is loved not only for his dedication to unity, but also for his exemplary leadership that brought Cuba through many perilous times.His leadership guided Cuba through the special period of the 1990s, after the defeat of the Soviet Union, a mainstay of Cuba’s trade and international support. The resulting shortages made life extremely hard for the Cuban people, who were hungry, tired, exhausted. Any other developing nation would have seen rebellions, chaos and uprisings, would have seen repression. But not Cuba. Because of Fidel and revolutionary socialist leadership, because the Revolution has the support of the masses, because the Revolution and the people are one, Cuba survived this dire period.Fidel’s leadership was central to Cuba’s struggle for the return of the child Elián González. In 1999, Elián’s mother misguidedly took her child with her on the seas in an attempt to get to Florida. She sadly died in that voyage. But Elián survived and was kidnapped by hostile counterrevolutionary forces and taken to Miami. All of Cuba mobilized to make the U.S. return Elián home to his father — and to the Revolution. And Cuba won!The Cuban people and their leadership focused on freeing the Cuban Five, anti-terrorists who sacrificed much to monitor hostile military actions conducted in Florida against Cuba. The U.S. imprisoned the Five in 2001 for a decade and a half. But free them the Revolution did. And home they went.Under Fidel’s leadership, Cuba’s role in support for Haiti, in liberation struggles in Africa, more recently in fighting Ebola, are only a few stellar examples of Cuba’s internationalism. As Cuba’s president, Fidel’s call for cancellation of capitalist debts owed by oppressed nations, and his constant attention to climate change, are more examples of his exemplary leadership.We must study Fidel so that we can live like Fidel. These words from his May Day 2000 speech, words Fidel lived every moment of his life, tell us why:“Revolution means to have a sense of history; it is changing everything that must be changed; it is full equality and freedom; it is being treated and treating others like human beings; it is achieving emancipation by ourselves and through our own efforts; it is challenging powerful dominant forces from within and without the social and national milieu; it is defending the values in which we believe at the cost of any sacrifice; it is modesty, selflessness, altruism, solidarity and heroism; it is fighting with courage, intelligence and realism; it is never lying or violating ethical principles; it is a profound conviction that there is no power in the world that can crush the power of truth and ideas.  Revolution means unity; it is independence, it is fighting for our dreams of justice for Cuba and for the world, which is the foundation of our patriotism, our socialism and our internationalism.”We have been so fortunate to be alive at the same time as Fidel. To have lived in the same time as Fidel is the same as the honor to have lived in the time of Lenin.Let us take the responsibility right now, from now on, and commit ourselves to be like Fidel, live like Fidel, fight like Fidel!Long live the Cuban Revolution!  VIVA FIDEL! VIVA RAÚL!WE ARE ALL FIDEL!  SOCIALISM OR DEATH!¡FIDEL PRESENTE!   ¡FIDEL PRESENTE!  ¡FIDEL PRESENTE!¡Hasta la victoria siempre Fidel!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fannie Mae: Fed’s Dovish Stance Could Help Housing

She is a graduate of the University of Pune, India, where she received her B.A. in Commerce with a concentration in Accounting and Marketing and an M.A. in Mass Communication. Upon completion of her masters degree, Ojha worked at a national English daily publication in India (The Indian Express) where she was a staff writer in the cultural and arts features section. Ojha, also worked as Principal Correspondent at HT Media Ltd and at Honeywell as an executive in corporate communications. She and her husband currently reside in Houston, Texas. The Federal Reserve’s (the Fed’s) pause on rate hikes is likely to help the housing market as well as the broader economy according to Fannie Mae’s February forecast update by its Economic and Research Group.While the report maintained its previous projection for a 2.2 percent full-year growth in GDP in 2019, it said that the slowing global economic growth and trade uncertainty remained downside risks. However, the report indicated that the Fed’s “patience” on raising rates “has led to easing financial conditions, while the expanding labor pool suggests minimal wage pressures, which together server as potential growth offsets to the opposite direction.”The Fed’s current stand also supported the report’s projection of a single mid-year hike in 2019.Looking at the housing market, in particular, Fannie Mae projected the calls for total home sales to remain flat in 2019. The decline in sales that the market saw last year, the report said, was likely to be eased by decelerating house price appreciation as well as a slowdown in interest rate increases. However, the report indicated fewer mortgage originations in 2019.”On housing, a reduction in our forecast of existing home sales has our team projecting fewer 2019 purchase mortgage originations,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. “However falling–or at least not rising–interest rates, strong employment, continued wage growth, and a deceleration in home price appreciation should support more favorable homebuying conditions heading into the spring, with improved affordability.”For the broader economy, Duncan said that while Fannie Mae’s projections for the first quarter were reduced slightly the forecast for the full year’s economic growth remained unchanged due to a strong labor market, modest rise in wages and the expectation of just one rate hike in the year. “Uncertainty regarding terms of trade remain a downside risk, as does slowing global economic growth,” Duncan said.Click here to read the forecast.

Dana is Premier’s 50 per cent partner in the two licences and the operator of Blocks 42/27, 47/2b and 47/3g.The 3D seismic data acquired across the Greater Tolmount Area in 2019 covered a significant area across the awarded adjacent licences. The final processed data from that survey was received in Q2 this year and Premier is now maturing a number of leads and prospects previously identified on the new blocks which, in the success case, could be developed via the Tolmount infrastructure.Premier, together with its joint venture partners, Cairn, MOL and ONE-Dyas, was awarded Block 28/9f adjacent to its Catcher Area fields. Block 28/9f contains the Cougar and Rapide prospects, which are being evaluated as potential tie-backs to the Catcher Area facilities.There are no well commitments associated with these awards.Dean Griffin, Head of Exploration, commented:“We are delighted to have been awarded the block next to our Catcher Area fields as well as the blocks adjacent to the Tolmount field, given our pre-investment in the extended 3D survey there. These awards provide significant opportunities to create value and to extend the life of these core assets.” Source: Company Press Release There are no well commitments associated with these awardslast_img read more
