"Quiero hacer un llamado de forma especial a los hombres del ejército. Hermanos, cada uno de ustedes es uno de nosotros. Somos la misma Gente. Los agricultores y los campesinos que asesinan son sus hermanos y hermanas. Cuando escuchan las palabras de un hombre que les dice que asesinen, piensen en su lugar en las palabras de Dios, "¡No matarás!" Ningún soldado está obligado a obedecer una orden contraria a la Ley de Dios", expresó monseñor un día antes que lo asesinaran el 24 de marzo de 1980.

Casi 40 años después de su asesinato, el sacerdote católico salvadoreño será canonizado el próximo domingo por el papa Francisco en el Vaticano.

      After the Nicaraguan Government announced that it has asked two key human rights institutions to leave the country, the UN human rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, said on Friday that she was “extremely alarmed” by a decision that means, in effect, there will be “no functioning independent human rights bodies left in Nicaragua”.
      According to High Commissioner Bachelet, the two non-profit human rights organisations were set up by the Inter-American Commission for Human Rights (IACHR), “in full cooperation with the Government after the violence and unrest earlier this year”. One of them is MESENI, a follow-up mechanism from IACHR set up specifically for Nicaragua, and the other is known as GIEI – the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts.
      “After the earlier cancellation of the registration and confiscation of properties of national NGOs working on human rights, the de facto expulsion of the two IACHR organizations means there are now virtually no functioning independent human rights bodies left in Nicaragua,” said Ms. Bachelet, who added that “the Government has said it will no longer accept visits by the IACHR itself”.

      HAVANA TIMES – Daniel Ortega has achieved what neither Putin, nor climate change, nor China, nor the immigration problem, nor Maduro nor Syria could do: he inspired nothing more and nothing less than the adoption of a bipartisan consensus between the US Republican and Democratic parties regarding his regime.
      What’s more, he managed to become a point of consensus between the US Executive branch, headed by Trump, and the US Congress. It may seem a lie or an exaggeration, but no other topic during Trump’s administration has been resolved with this level of consensus.
      In reacting to the decisions adopted by the organs of United States power, Ortega momentarily dusted off the old speeches that he had kept filed away these eleven years and spoke once again of interventionism, of imperialism and other expressions of the like. Then, he fell silent.
      He’ll likely speak about it again once he’s assimilated the blow and has designed the course he’ll follow. Meanwhile, it’s important to recall that Nicaragua’s economic dependence with respect to the United States has broadened and deepened during this “antiimperialist” regime of Ortega’s.

      Ortega profundiza su aislamiento internacional al no asistir a la Cumbre Iberoamericana

      Jefes de Estado y representantes iberoamericanos en la Cumbre. LAVANDEIRA JR. EFE
       
      Todas las miradas estaban puestas en él. Daniel Ortega había confirmado su asistencia la Cumbre Iberoamericana de La Antigua (Guatemala) en un intento de lavar su imagen tras la represión emprendida en abril contra sus opositores, que ha dejado más de 300 muertos y 400 encarcelados. Una muestra de que no tenía nada que ocultar. De dar una sensación de normalidad en su país que no es tal. Era el primer encuentro multilateral al que el presidente de Nicaragua iba a asistir desde que se iniciaran las protestas, después de declinar su participación en la Asamblea General de la ONU. En el último momento, Ortega canceló su viaje y profundiza el aislamiento internacional del país centroamericano.

      Un centenar de seguidores del gobierno y paramilitares irrumpieron este lunes en la basílica de la ciudad de Diriamba, suroeste de Nicaragua, y agredieron a jerarcas católicos, agravándose la violencia que deja unos 250 muertos en casi tres meses de protestas contra el presidente Daniel Ortega.
      Los seguidores de Ortega entraron con violencia en la Basílica de San Sebastián, cuando obispos y sacerdotes llegaban a apoyar a una decena de personas que se habían refugiado el domingo, en medio de un enfrentamiento entre fuerzas del gobierno y manifestantes que tenían barricadas en las calles.
      “Asesinos”, “mentirosos”, “hijos de puta”, gritaron los partidarios del gobierno cuando llegó a Diriamba la comitiva de religiosos, encabezada por el cardenal Leopoldo Brenes y el nuncio Stanislaw Waldemar Sommertag, constató un equipo de la AFP.
      Los jeracas católicos, que se trasladaron en caravana desde Managua, fueron rodeados por seguidores del gobierno en la entrada del templo, en cuyos alrededores había decenas de hombres encapuchados vestidos de civil y policías.

      No existe un infierno en el que sufren las almas de los pecadores para toda la eternidad. Así de rotundo se ha expresado el papa Francisco en una entrevista con el diario italiano La Repubblica. Tras la muerte, las almas de las personas que se arrepienten reciben el perdón de Dios y se suman a quienes lo contemplan, pero "aquellos que no se arrepienten y por tanto no pueden ser perdonados, desaparecen", afirma el pontífice argentino. "El infierno no existe; lo que existe es la desaparición de las almas pecadoras", añade Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
      El papa fue entrevistado por Eugenio Scalfari, un veterano periodista italiano que se proclama ateo pero suele reflexionar sobre la fe y la religión y tiene acceso al líder de la Iglesia católica. Sin embargo, en el pasado la veracidad de algunas de las citas del periodista ha sido cuestionada, sobre todo porque Scalfari, de 93 años, admitió que nunca graba sus entrevistas. Pese a ello, el Vaticano no ha protestado por su trabajo y Francisco sigue dándole entrevistas.
      Bueno, en realidad, es mejor decir que no se había quejado... hasta hoy, porque desde Roma ha venido, con las horas, el desmentido a las palabras del papa. No, no es que le lleven la contra, es que dicen que el histórico periodista no se enteró bien. El Vaticano desmiente lo que ha publicado el diario italiano y afirma que no se trata de una "transcripción fiel" de las palabras de Francisco.
      "El Santo Padre Francisco recibió recientemente el fundador del diario La Repubblica en una reunión privada durante la Semana Santa pero sin que aquello fuera considerado una entrevista. Según ha informado el autor del artículo las declaraciones que se recogen no son textuales. Los entrecomillados que aparecen no se deben considerar como una reproducción fiel de las palabras del Santo Padre", afirma un comunicado de la Oficina de Prensa de la Santa Sede.
      La noticia se produce una semana después de la dimisión del ex prefecto de la Secretaría de Comunicaciones, monseñor Dario Edoardo Viganò, después de la polémica por la publicación parcial de una carta del papa emérito, Benedicto XVI, en que elogiaba la formación teológica de Francisco.
      Los párrafos difundidos solo hacían referencia a la defensa de Benedicto XVI ante el "necio prejuicio según el cual el papa Francisco sería solo un hombre práctico sin particular formación teológica y filosófica".

      La tormenta tropical Selma golpeó las costas salvadoreñas el 28 de octubre con ráfagas de viento de 70 kilómetros por hora y provocó que el 1 de noviembre flotarán quelonios muertos en el mar.
      El Salvador
      La muerte de alrededor de 400 tortugas marinas en la costa Pacífico de El Salvador se debió a la proliferación de saxitoxinas producto de la tormenta tropical Selma, que ingresó a este país el 28 de octubre, informó Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (MARN).
      "La mortandad de tortugas fue consecuencia de dos fenómenos combinados: Tormenta tropical Selma y saxitoxinas, según los estudios preliminares", precisó en su cuenta en Twitter el MARN.

      In the country’s first camp for internally displaced people since the civil war, 70 people are living on a basketball court: ‘We won’t go back’

      A gloomy group of men and women watch in silence as a truckload of armed soldiers slowly drive past the basketball court where they are living in makeshift plastic shelters.
      This encampment in Caluco, a small town 40 miles west of the capital, San Salvador, is home to about 70 people from a nearby farming community, forced to flee their homes after a recent escalation of gang violence.
      It is El Salvador’s first camp for internally displaced people since the 12-year civil war, when an estimated one million people were forcibly displaced and 80,000 killed.
      The war between the leftist guerrillas and US-supported military dictatorships ended in 1992, but peace never came to this small Central American country, where the social and economic inequalities which triggered the conflict remain unresolved. Social exclusion, state repression and gang violence have steadily grown worse, and in recent years, El Salvador has become the world’s most violent country outside a declared war zone.
      Ironically, the region around Caluco was spared much of the civil war bloodletting, said the local mayor, Bianca Oriana, who set up the camp in the shadows of the Santa Ana volcano. “In this area, we were not badly affected by the war violence. For us, the gangs are much worse,” she said.
      The Caluco camp serves as the latest stark warning that extreme violence is again displacing huge numbers of Salvadorans, forcing entire families to leave home in search of safety.
      More than 1,000 people, including several entire communities, are known to have been internally displaced since the beginning of 2015, according to human rights activists in El Salvador. The actual number is likely to be much higher.
      Tens of thousands more have fled the country altogether. In the past year, almost 40,000 Salvadorans travelling in family groups, and unaccompanied children, were apprehended by US border control agents.
      While the worst violence was once concentrated in deprived urban areas, it has since spread to small towns and rural communities.
      Caluco is a picturesque semi-rural district with about 9,000 inhabitants. About seven years ago, Barrio 18 Sureños – one of the three largest gangs in the country - started forming clicas, or cells, in the area.
      “At first they didn’t cause any problems, it was just about belonging to something –but then came the drugs and violence,” said Oriana.
      According to local people, around three years ago, the gang leaders suddenly started carrying high-calibre weapons and pressuring families to cooperate: providing money and food whenever demanded, or acting as lookouts for police or soldiers.
      The murder rate inched up steadily, despite the presence of an army base in the district; one by one, families started to leave.
      One of the worst-affected communities was El Castaño, where a 64-year-old man called Francisco Barrientos was killed after allegedly refusing to cooperate with a gang led by one of his nephews. His relatives responded by burning down the house of the gang leader’s mother.
      “We knew this was a declaration of war, but I am happy we did it,” said a family member, who asked not to be named. “They had been doing bad things for a long time.”

      In response, the gang ordered the entire community to leave – on pain of death. Within days, almost every family had abandoned their corn and yucca fields, and fled with only the clothes on their backs.
      Since then, the national police have sent in reinforcements from the anti-gang unit, and 35 alleged gang members have been detained and paraded in front of TV cameras. Human Rights groups say El Salvador’s new mano dura – or iron fist – policy against the gangs has resulted in the indiscriminate targeting of young men.
      The families in the camp have been told they must soon return home, but many are too scared – both of the gang members and the local police – and are considering fleeing the country.
      “Those who are guilty should pay, but those who are innocent should be let go,” said one 53-year-old woman, whose eldest son was among those arrested. “We won’t go back; we can’t trust the police who have stained my son’s name. I don’t know where we’ll go, but maybe to another country.”

      Earthquake hits, triggering tsunami warnings, after Nicaragua Caribbean coastline battered by hurricane

      A 7.0 magnitude earthquake has shaken El Salvador and Nicaragua, just an hour after a powerful hurricane hit Nicaragua's eastern coast.
      The double whammy was a grim test for a largely poor region which lacks resources and emergency plans for natural disasters.
      Salvadoran authorities issued a tsunami alert as a precaution after the tremor, which struck around 75 miles off the coast of El Salvador, at a depth of 20 miles beneath the Pacific Ocean, according to the US Geological Survey. The quake was first measured at a magnitude of 7.2 but was then downgraded.
      "Hazardous" waves measuring about up to 1m (three feet) are possible to hit coastal areas within 300km of the quake's epicentre.
      Shaking was also felt in the Nicaraguan capital of Managua, and as far as the Costa Rican capital San Jose.
      Nicaragua's president, Daniel Ortega, declared a state of emergency immediately after the quake. The country was already on alert for an hurricane which struck earlier the same day, as was Costa Rica.
      There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties, according to the country's civil defense agency.
      Just one hour before the earthquake, a powerful hurricane, Otto, packing winds of 110mph, made landfall on Nicaragua's Caribbean coast.
      Thousands of people had already been evacuated from coastal areas into shelters - a total of 7,000 people are expected to evacuate in Nicaragua alone. Government officials said some people had refused to evacuate but did not say how many. Earlier this week, four people died in Panama due to outer bands of the storm.
      The heavy rains it was offloading were likely to cause dangerous flooding and mud slides, according to the US National Hurricane Center, as much as 20 inches of rain are expected in isolated areas across northern Costa Rica and southern Nicaragua. Schools were shut down and emergency teams were mobilised.
      Otto was the southernmost hurricane to ever make landfall in Central America, the NHC said, and residents were not prepared.
      The storm came ashore on Thursday near the Costa Rican border on the town of San Juan de Nicaragua, also known as Greytown. Residents said they were scared, and saw heavy rains and winds rip off roofs and bring down cable lines. In the town of Bluefields, panic buying meant bottled water and lamps were swept off the shelves, and some residents fled in boats while others hammered themselves into their homes with metal sheeting, praying the storm would move on.
      Otto will weaken as it moves inland and will likely become a tropical storm by Thursday evening, the center added. It is currently travelling west at around 9mph, chewing its way along both sides of Costa Rica's and Nicaragua's coastlines.

    • It is interesting how from time to time, from post to post some unanimous individuals falling from some unknown Planet, and start giving down-vote symbol to other people comments.   :)))))  This is funny, but also very good. Because their reaction are proof how they read comments and found it serious to such level that they (comments) in fact pressed right bottom in people's minds and feelings. 
    • True but not any of my ancestors claimed to be the “faithful and discreet slave personally “ and God’s mouthpiece to the congregation of God’s true followers.
    • Obviously God did not inspire those paragraphs. They read very badly in 2019. Nevertheless, you shouldn't judge dead people by the morals of today. You probably have an ancestor that believed something similar yourself.
    • Dear @Arauna , nothing in my comments are written because of hate. Just try to openly discussing about religious practice and reasons for such beliefs and practice. 
    • @Arauna  So you are saying God's standards on child baptism have changed? Because if OUR standards as humans have obviously changed then that means that we weren't or aren't following God's will at some point. Correct? One could always make the argument like Watchtower always has that we should follow how things were done back in the first century Christian congregation. = Jesus set the example = Men should be baptized at the age of Jesus.  
    • Well the older the kid gets the harder to get that kid to be baptized.  No underage should get baptized as the price of changing their mind later is too high. 
    • For your reading pleasure this fine Tuesday afternoon. Today’s Watchtower articles come from the pen of our former and only loving Pastor, Charles Taze Russell and one quote from the 1932 Year Book of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Let’s dig into this spiritual food that flowed from God’s mouthpiece to our tables. The Watchtower April 15th, 1900 p 122; “There are probably as many as a hundred colored brethren on the Watch Tower lists, some of them very clear in the truth, and very earnest in its service, financially and other-wise .. [but they are not allowed to participate in the "pioneer work" as] although we have received letters from several of these, who had intended engaging in the volunteer work, expressing surprise that in the call for volunteers in the March 1, 1900 issue we restricted the inquiry to white Protestant churches. .. The reason is that so far as we are able to judge, colored people have less education than whites - many of them quite insufficient to permit them to profit by such reading as we have to give forth. Our conclusion therefore is based upon the supposition that reading matter distributed to a colored congregation would more than half of it be utterly wasted, and a very small percentage indeed likely to yield good results. We advise, therefore, that where the Watch Tower literature is introduced to colored people it be not by promiscuous circulation, but only to those who give evidence of some ear for the truth. We avoid, so far as possible, putting the pearls of present truth into the hands of the vicious and depraved ..” The Watchtower July 15th, 1902 p216; “The Negro Not a Beast .. that Ham's characteristics which had led him to unseemly conduct disrespectful to his father, would be found cropping out later, inherited by his son, and prophetically he foretold that this degeneracy would mark the posterity of Canaan, degrading him, making him servile. We are not able to determine to a certainty that the sons of Ham and Canaan are negroes; but we consider that general view as probable as any other.. We are not to forget, either, that Africa is inhabited by various tribes or nations of negroes - some more and some less degraded than the average.. While it is true that the white race exhibits some qualities of superiority over any other, we are to remember that there are wide differences in the same Caucasian (Semitic and Aryan) family.. The secret of the greater intelligence and aptitude of the Caucasian undoubtedly in great measure is to be attributed to the commingling of blood amongst its various branches; and this was evidently forced in large measure by circumstances under divine control. It remains to be proven that the similar commingling of the various tribes of Chinese for several centuries would not equally brighten their intellects; and the same with the peoples of India and Africa.” The Watchtower April 1st, 1908 p99 “The negro and Latin races will probably always be inclined to superstition.” Year Book 1932, pp 63-64 Colored Branch When our colored brethren were made a separate branch there was considerable objection on the part of some, these have the thought that the Colored or Negro race was being pushed aside. This was not the case, however. It was thought best for the Colored brethren to work amongst their own people, and the results show that this conclusion was correct. This concludes our racist study course for today. Golden Age 1920-'Agriculture and Husbandry' This was an old article speaking against the dangers of crossbreeding crops and the unusable 'hybrids' that resulted. Then added: "Even in the case of the human family, if the father and mother are of different races the children are sometimes unfit for brain work. Wonderful are the fixed laws of God." I think there were writers of the literature that held views with varying levels of racism. There were articles (c.1914) that spoke about how great it was that the 'colored friends' wanted to watch the Photodrama of Creation (oh, but so as not to offend the white attendees, lets segregate them to the balcony.) And... Watchtower 1952. "Really, our colored brothers have great cause for rejoicing. Their race is meek and teachable, and from it comes a high percentage of the theocratic increase. What if the worldly wise and powerful and noble look down on them as foolish and weak and ignoble, not on an equality with self-exalted whites? It is to God’s ultimate honor, for he confounds the wise of this world by choosing those the world considers foolish and weak and ignoble. Let us boast in Jehovah and in our equality in his sight, rather than wanting to boast in equality in the world’s sight." Then... Awake! 1953 Oct 8 p.6 "South Africa's whole color policy is conditioned by this fact and this fear: 80 per cent of her population is black; if the color bar is breached, what new dike can stop a black flood from overflowing and destroying the civilisation with which white man have displaced the wilderness?"
