efe’s YouTube Videos: Ana Pastor recibe en el Congreso a los padres de los menores asesinados

From: efe
Duration: 01:36

Madrid, 15 mar (EFE).- La presidenta del Congreso, Ana Pastor, ha recibido hoy a padres de niños asesinados coincidiendo con el debate hoy en el pleno de la Cámara Baja de las enmiendas a la totalidad a la propuesta de derogación de la prisión permanente revisable, a la que se oponen rotundamente.
A la llegada al Congreso, el padre de Diana Quer, ha pedido a los grupos políticos que si intentan “derogar en caliente” la prisión permanente al menos tengan la “dignidad” de plantear una alternativa y protejan a sus hijos.
“No hemos recibido ninguna”, ha denunciado Juan Carlos Quer, quien junto a otros padres, se ha reunido en los últimos días con portavoces de prácticamente todos los grupos parlamentarios.
Al encuentro con Pastor asisten Juan Carlos Quer, Antonio del Castillo, Juan José Cortés, María del Mar Palo, Jessica Sánchez -en representación de la familia de Yéremi Vargas- y Blanca Estrella Ruiz, presidenta de la Asociación Clara Campoamor.
Todos ellos, asistirán después desde la tribuna de invitados al debate de la iniciativa.
Juan Carlos Quer ha recordado que cuentan con tres millones de firmas en contra de la derogación de la prisión permanente revisable, y que ocho de cada diez españoles están a favor de que se mantenga.
Ayer mismo, tras mantener una reunión con el PNV terminando así su ronda de contactos con los grupos políticos, Juan Carlos Quer expresó su decepción alertó de que la derogación “les costará muchos votos”.
Por su parte, el padre de Marta del Castillo ha pedido al PSOE que cambie su postura y se niegue a la derogación de la prisión permanente.
“Espero que haya cinco señores que necesiten ir al servicio y se pueda sacar la votación, esas cosas funcionan así, y el PSOE no va por buen camino”, ha alertado.
Antonio del Castillo ha recordado que el PSOE siempre ha gobernado en Andalucía y sin embargo “nunca” ha tenido su apoyo.
“No es que seamos críticos, es que es la realidad”, ha lamentado.

efe’s YouTube Videos: Preocupación por cinco intentos de secuestro a menores en Madrid

From: efe
Duration: 02:01

Madrid, 15 mar (EFE).- La Policía Nacional investiga el intento de secuestro de una niña de once años este miércoles en el colegio Sagrada Familia, en el número 165 de la calle de Jorge Juan del barrio madrileño de Salamanca, ha informado hoy la Jefatura Superior de Policía de Madrid.
Según la fuente, el suceso se produjo a las 17:00 horas cuando un varón intentó introducir por la fuerza a una niña en un vehículo aunque no lo consiguió y se dio a la fuga.
Este conato de secuestro que investiga la Policía supondría el quinto caso similar ocurrido en Madrid después de cuatro intentos de rapto de menores denunciados, dos de ellos en la localidad de Las Rozas, uno en Pinto y otro en Arroyomolinos.
Las denuncias se refieren a un intento de secuestro de un niño el pasado día 8 junto al colegio Logos, en Las Rozas, y el de otro niño al día siguiente en el colegio Europa, de Pinto.
El miércoles, la Guardia Civil recibió otras dos denuncias, una de ellas relacionada con un supuesto caso de secuestro en diciembre en un centro comercial de Arroyomolinos y la otra sobre un caso en Las Rozas en una parada de autobús, de la que está cerca ningún centro escolar.

IMPERIALISM 2018: The United States Still Rules Puerto Rico Like A Colony. That’s Sad And Wrong – The Daily Caller

IMPERIALISM 2018: The United States Still Rules Puerto Rico Like A Colony. That’s Sad And Wrong
The Daily Caller
To their credit, the people of Puerto Rico have tried put an end to this disenfranchisement, holding two referenda in the past five years, wherein an overwhelming majority of its citizens voted in favor of ending the current colonial status, and making 

Puerto Rico Statehood Commission Demands Action

The Puerto Rico Statehood Commission has written to Congress demanding action on Puerto Rico statehood.

The letter, sent on March 6, was signed by five members of the Commission, each of whom was identified as either a Shadow United States Senator or Shadow Member of Congress.  The correspondence, addressed to their fellow “colleagues” of the United States Congress, explained that as Puerto Rico’s shadow delegation, their mandate is to come to Congress to advocate for and demand statehood.

“On March 2, 1917, ” the letter began, “the U.S. Congress granted American citizenship to the people of Puerto Rico through the Jones-Shafroth Act (P.L. 64368). Since then, Puerto Ricans have proven their loyalty and contributed to the United States in countless ways. U.S. citizens from Puerto Rico have proudly served in the Armed Forces in every conflict since World War I. Along the way, Puerto Ricans have earned honors including one Congressional Gold Medal for the 65th Infantry Regiment Borinqueneers, nine Medals of Honor, and thousands of Purple Hearts, all of which are a testament to the ultimate sacrifice Puerto Ricans have made to promote and protect American interests and values.

“As this celebration of 100 years of American Citizenship comes to an end, we call on Congress to recognize that the U.S. citizens of Puerto Rico live at a disadvantage compared to our fellow citizens in the states.”

The letter includes a list of inequalities in the treatment of residents of Puerto Rico, compared with those of the 50 states:

  • “Puerto Ricans are subject to federal laws but do not have voting representation in the U.S. House of Representatives or any representation in the U.S. Senate.”
  • .Puerto Rican soldiers can’t vote for their Commander-in-Chief.
  • “Congress can and does treat Puerto Rico unequally under federal laws, leading to incoherent and arbitrary policies that limit the Island’s opportunities to maximize its economic potential.”
  • Puerto Rico is treated like a state in many cases, but is treated as foreign for others.
  • “Although we deeply cherish our American citizenship, our rights as citizens are not guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.”

The authors remind their readers that Puerto Rican citizenship is based on a “101 year old statute that Congress could repeal if desired.”

The letter goes on to describe the results of the two most recent status votes in Puerto Rico. In 2012, voters in Puerto Rico “soundly rejected the current undemocratic and unequal territorial status, and a majority favored statehood over all other non-territorial status options.” In 2017, “97 percent of voters in Puerto Rico overwhelmingly re-confirmed that statehood is our preferred status option to end the inherently limiting territorial status.”

The Statehood Commission declared that these votes demonstrate that Puerto Rico is currently governed “without the consent of the governed.”

Furthermore, the letter continues, the existence of the PROMESA fiscal oversight board (FOMB) and the slow pace of recovery from Hurricane Maria prove that the current territorial status is “obsolete and unable to meet the challenges of our time.”

“While efforts to re-establish fiscal sustainability, restructure debts and rebuild after the hurricanes are all necessary,” the letter continues, “these measures are simply insufficient to overcome Puerto Ricos challenges. The reality is that Puerto Ricos territorial status is an inherent structural limitation on the islands true and full potential. Americas best interests are simply not served by continuing a century old failed territorial regime that can never be fixed.”

The Commission argues that statehood is the only possible solution to the problems Puerto Rico faces. “[O]nly Puerto Ricos admission as a state, with equal rights and responsibilities, would bring significant economic progress to the island, decrease dependence and increase interstate commerce for the mutual benefit of Puerto Rico and the rest of the Nation.”

The letter then expresses unwillingness to wait for Congress to initiate the change. With a nod to a number of other territories which were bold enough to demand statehood, the authors conclude, “The time to end Puerto Ricos undemocratic colonial territory status has come. After decades of federal elected officials claiming support for Puerto Ricos ‘self-determination,’ it is imperative that Congress respect and act upon the results of the 2012 and 2017 votes. We ask for your leadership to help us finally and definitively transition to a fully democratic system of government through statehood.”

U.S. Congressional Committee to Investigate PREPA

Leaders of the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee sent a letter today to Justo Gonzalez, Interim Executive Director of PREPA, requesting documents and information to better understand the scope of alleged alleges corruption in PREPAs power restoration operations[]

The letter is signed by House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT), Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations Chairman Bruce Westerman (R-AR), and Subcommittee on Indian, Insular and Alaska Native Affairs Chairman Doug LaMalfa (R-CA).

PREPAs response is due by March 26, 2018.

The correspondence is consistent with the tendency of congressional Republicans to blame PREPA for difficulties in Puerto Rico, while Democrats are blaming President Trump and FEMA for the slow response to Hurricane Maria, which devastated the island territory in September of 2017.

In the letter, the congressional leaders cite an alleged incident in which PREPA officials were reportedly paid $5,000 and provided free entry tickets, valued at $1,000 each, to restore power to San Juan area exotic dance clubs in advance of the scheduled restoration timeline.  The letter also mentions alleged incidents in which the comfort of PREPA officials was prioritized above that of a medical center and San Juans primary airport.

Billions of taxpayer dollars are pledged to help Puerto Rico, but a lack of faith in Puerto Ricos institutions remains a major barrier to recovery, the letters authors explain.
