  2. Special Convention Puerto Rico 2016, Asamblea International de Puerto Rico
  3. Meet Puerto Rico, the Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) responsible for attracting meetings, conventions, trade shows, sporting events, and incentive groups to Puerto Rico, recently hosted the Jehovah’s Witnesses Special Convention, the largest city-wide convention of the year, bringing an estimated $5 million economic impact to Puerto Rico. From August 22-31, more than 34,500 attendees from the United States, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Colombia, and Cuba experienced the culture of Puerto Rico and stayed throughout the island, from San Juan to Ponce for a total of 7,500 room nights. “We are honored that that the Jehovah’s Witnesses chose Puerto Rico to host their Jehovah’s Witnesses Special Convention,” said Milton Segarra, President & CEO, Meet Puerto Rico (MPR-Puerto Rico Convention Bureau). “Puerto Rico has everything it takes to host a large scale, city-wide convention - including a state-of-the-art convention center, a wide variety of accommodations including major hotel brands, and a strong infrastructure. And we offer “only-in- Puerto Rico” experiences, for planners seeking locations that provide experiences to make their events memorable while maintaining an authentic experience. We are fortunate that Puerto Rico delivers that charge.” Delegates and exhibitors were linked to virtual attendees as well in the United States via live stream set up at the Puerto Rico Convention Center, the Puerto Rico Coliseum, Ponce Trade Fair Central as well as Arecibo and Humacao. Itinerary highlights included day trips, and pre-and post-tours. The delegates stayed in San Juan, Manati, Bayamon and Ponce. The Jehovah’s Witnesses organizational committee said they were pleased with the way the conference was handled and will bring meetings to Puerto Rico over the next five years, including the potential to hold the 2021 Annual Convention in Puerto Rico again. A number of reasons have played into their decision to return to Puerto Rico. “Puerto Rico had the flavor of what we wanted to share with our delegates. It is easy to reach, has a wide variety of accommodations, wonderful restaurants, hospitals and scores top marks in their venues and customer service,” said Jorge Alanis, Special Assembly Committee Coordinator. “But what really sets them apart is the combination of the authentic experiences our attendees bring back with them as well as the wonderful people we have worked with and met. We understand that 5,000 local volunteers contributed to our conference and that says a lot about the care taken to ensure all conference attendees feel taken care of,” he said. Puerto Rico continues to position itself as an ideal destination for meetings and conventions, offering a state-of-the-art convention center, a wide variety of hotels, strong infrastructure and unique attractions with the added advantage of being on a tropical island in the Caribbean. One in four rooms occupied in hotels that can accommodate large-scale meetings belongs to the groups and conventions segment. http://www.eturbonews.com/74803/puerto-rico-loves-jehovah-s-witnesses

  5. Watchtower Bible Tract Society of New York, Inc. v. Municipality of Ponce, (D PR, July 6, 2016), is the latest installment in a 12-year battle by Jehovah's Witnesses to gain access to gated communities in Puerto Rico in order to proselytize door-to-door. In prior decisions, the federal courts have ordered communities to grant access to Jehovah's Witnesses. However in response certain gated communities argued that they are not subject to the court's orders because their roads and streets are completely private. In this 50-page opinion, a Puerto Rico federal district court ruled that the streets within Estancias del Golf Club in the Municipality of Ponce are subject to the court's earlier orders The court said in part: Up to 2012, the residents of EGC went above and beyond to complete the last steps of the transfer of their streets to the Municipality. Suddenly, they took a one hundred eighty degree turn and demanded their streets now be private, when it became convenient to them. This Court will not allow Plaintiffs’ First Amendment protected activity to be held hostage by the whim of residents associations within gated communities.... It has become quite common for urbanizations and some of their residents to believe it is unacceptable to have non-residents walk the streets within their gated communities. This constitutes a discriminatory pattern that our Constitution forbids.... Community gates in Puerto Rico narrow the concept of community and of individual through decisions about group social worth and social threat, about who is redeemable and who is dispensable, about who is “good” and allowable, and about who is “bad” and made to “go away.” http://catholicnewslive.com/story/583615
  6. Doctors are monitoring 279 pregnant women with confirmed or suspected Zika virus infections in the United States and its territories, federal health officials said Friday. Of those women, 157 are in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, and 122 are in territories, including Puerto Rico. Public health officials are gathering data on the health consequences of the infection, including the rate at which fetuses develop abnormally shrunken heads and brain damage, a birth defect called microcephaly. Also on Friday, the World Health Organization confirmed that the strain of Zika virus in Cape Verde, just off the western coast of Africa, is the same strain that is spreading in Brazil. Almost 200 pregnant women in Cape Verde have been infected, and the virus has been blamed for three cases of microcephaly there. The rising numbers of pregnant American women testing positive — Friday’s figure is more than double the previous count of 113 — reflect a new case definition used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rather than a surge in cases, according to Dr. Margaret Honein, the chief of the agency’s birth defects division. No cases transmitted by mosquito have yet been reported in the 50 states. The number of infected pregnant women in this country began rising dramatically in February, probably reflecting the spread of the Zika virus from Brazil to more countries visited by Americans. Most of the 279 women are still pregnant, Dr. Honein said, and fewer than a dozen have experienced “adverse outcomes,” such as stillbirths, microcephaly or other congenital problems. A “relatively small number” of the infections clearly resulted from sexual transmission rather than mosquito bites, she added. But in most cases, it was difficult to determine how the women became infected because they had lived in or had traveled to areas where mosquitoes carrying the virus were biting. The C.D.C. previously reported only pregnant women with symptoms like rash, fever or bloodshot eyes. But “we’ve learned a lot in the last four months,” Dr. Honein said. At least four published studies have cited cases in which women with no memory of having symptoms gave birth to children with birth defects. The new case definition includes all women who have had a positive test for Zika virus, or a likely positive for antibodies to it. Antibody tests are not as accurate as tests for the virus itself because previous infections with dengue fever or shots to prevent yellow fevercan create false positives. “C.D.C. wants to make sure we are monitoring all women at risk for poor outcomes,” said Dr. Denise J. Jamieson, a co-leader of thepregnancy and birth defects team at the agency. Each Thursday, the agency will update the number of infected pregnant women in the United States, officials said. The outbreak in Cape Verde, a Portuguese-speaking country with close links to both Brazil and West Africa, has been a puzzle for months. The intense outbreak in the island nation started last October, just as Brazil’s surge in microcephalic babies was detected. But confirmation that it was caused by the Brazilian strain, rather than the much older African one, did not come until the Pasteur Institute in Dakar, Senegal, sequenced the genomes of the infecting viruses. Cape Verde’s outbreak is now fading, said Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, the W.H.O.’s regional director for Africa, and there has been no outbreak in Senegal, which she called Cape Verde’s “door out to other countries.” Although that might suggest that Africans have some immunity, “it’s never good news to hear that a virus with neuropathic effects is on your doorstep,” said Dr. Bruce Aylward, the W.H.O.’s chief of emergency response. “We don’t know what the level of population immunity is in Africa, and we don’t know if it will mitigate some of the impact,” he said. “So we have to work against a worst-case scenario.” Although laboratory capacity in Africa has been built up in the wake of the 2014 Ebola outbreak, the continent is still very poor and the response to the W.H.O.’s appeal to donors for a $50 million Zika fund has been “anemic,” Dr. Aylward said. A recent study in Clinical Microbiology Reviews looked at 80 sets of blood tests for the Zika virus in countries around the world between 1947, when the virus was discovered in Uganda, and 2014, when it was detected in French Polynesia — the last major outbreak before it reached South America. Some samples are small, some tests used methods that would confuse Zika with related viruses, and the results range wildly: For example, 12 percent of 261 Ugandans tested in the 1940s were immune to the virus, while nearly 60 percent of 2,457 Senegalese tested in the 1970s were. The authors concluded that the Zika virus was probably endemic to all of sub-Saharan Africa, although there was no way to know how many people had immunity at any given time. Although Dr. Aylward said it is still not known whether immunity to the African strain confers protection from the Brazilian one, Scott C. Weaver, the director of the Institute for Human Infections and Immunity at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and an expert on the Zika virus, said he would be “very surprised if there weren’t complete cross-protection between the two.” Genetically, the two strains are very closely related, he said. By contrast, strains of yellow fever have much more variation, and yet he did not know of a single instance in which the yellow fever vaccine, which is based on one strain gathered years ago, failed to protect against the other strains. Testing in animal models, including immune-deficient mice, has just begun, he said, but he could not name any laboratory trying to prove that infection with one strain of Zika protects against later infection with another. “We assume there’s cross-protection, and we’re interested in other questions,” he said, including whether microcephaly is typically caused by Zika alone. At the White House on Friday, President Obama pressured Congress to give him $1.9 billion for the fight against Zika. Americans should tell their Congressional representatives to “get on the job,” he said. “This is something that is solvable — it is not something that we have to panic about, but it is something we have to take seriously,” Mr. Obama said in the Oval Office after a briefing from top health officials. Congress should not take its scheduled Memorial Day vacation without passing the legislation, he said. His advisers have said the president would veto a House measure that provides only $622 million. The administration was “encouraged” by the Senate’s $1.1 billion version but is not promising to sign it. Referring to the funding Mr. Obama has requested, “anything short of that will be insufficient,” said Eric Schultz, the deputy White House press secretary.

  8. Tuesday, February 16, 2016 In 2013, a Puerto Rico federal district court, in a case on remand from the 1st Circuit, ordered neighborhood homeowners' associations (urbanizations) that operate gated communities to provide Jehovah's Witnesses who wish to proselytize in the neighborhood access equal to that of residents. (See prior posting.) There has been a good deal ofresistance by urbanizations to complying with the orders, particularly because of concern about crime. Earlier this month another lawsuit was filed by Jehovah's Witnesses against gated communities in 38 municipalities, a majority of the remaining municipalities not named as defendants in the earlier suit. In Watchtower Bible Tract Society of New York, Inc. v. Municipality of Aguada, (D PR, Feb. 10, 2016), a Puerto Rico federal district court issued an elaborate temporary restraining order designed to facilitate maximal compliance with the right of Jehovah's Witnesses to obtain access to gated communities, particularly in light of the March 23 Memorial of the Death of Jesus Holiday. The court ordered that urbanizations in all 38 municipalities must be open for Jehovah's Witnesses to proselytize on Saturday, February 27, 2016 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Then by March 15, all the municipalities must either notify plaintiffs that they agree to the same kind of open arrangements that were ordered in the earlier case, or else notify the court that they are defending against the lawsuit. Municipalities that agree to go along with the earlier arrangements will be given time to confer with plaintiffs on implementing an action plan, and will avoid assessment of attorneys' fees. Others will move to litigation Source: Jehovah's Witnesses In Puerto Rico Win Access To Additional Gated Communities To Proselytize
  9. El Vocero / El juez federal Gustavo Gelpí, ordenó a 37 municipios que fueron demandados en un nuevo caso presentado por los Testigos de Jehová, a dejarlos entrar a las urbanizaciones con acceso controlado de 8:00 de la mañana a 5:00 hasta la tarde el 27 de febrero.La orden contenida en el expediente del caso expresa que esta restricción temporera expirará a las 5:01 de la tarde del 27 de febrero.Los demandantes tienen que llevar personalmente a los demandados copia de la orden no más tarde del 12 de febrero.El 15 de marzo los demandados deberán mostrar causa de por qué no se les debe ordenar cumplir con el remedio constitucional. En esa misma fecha los demandados tienen que responder a la demanda.Gelpí advirtió que no concederá extensiones a los demandados para responder al recurso legal, porque de lo contrario, entenderá que se allanaron.Esta es la segunda demanda que radican los Testigos de Jehová en el Tribunal Federal en la que alegan se les impide la entrada a urbanizaciones con control de acceso.El pasado 4 de febrero los religiosos presentaron un recurso legal contra los municipios de Aguada, Aguas Buenas, Añasco, Arecibo, Barceloneta, Cabo Rojo, Camuy, Canóvanas, Carolina, Cataño, Cayey, Cidra, Coamo, Corozal, Fajardo, Florida, Guánica, Guayama, Hatillo, Hormigueros, Humacao, Isabela, Juana Díaz, Loíza, Luquillo, Manatí, Mayaguez, Naguabo, Patillas, Río Grande, Salinas, San Germán, San Lorenzo, Toa Alta, Toa Baja, Vega Alta, Villalba y Yabucoa.En el 2004 los Testigos de Jehová radicaron una primera demanda en el Tribunal Federal contra gobierno de Puerto Rico, varios municipios y a urbanizaciones con controles de acceso, por impedir su prédica casa por casa.Los ayuntamientos demandados fueron Bayamón, Ponce, San Juan, Dorado, Gurabo, Caguas, Santa Isabel, Vega Baja, Yauco y Trujillo Alto.El Tribunal de Apelaciones del Primer Circuito y el Tribunal Supremo de Estados Unidos fallaron a favor de los religiosos.

  10. Los Testigos de Jehová acudieron otra vez al Tribunal Federal para pedir una extensión a la orden que les permite acceso a las urbanizaciones con control de acceso. El reclamo, apoyado en la decisión de marzo de 2013 del juez federal Gustavo Gelpí, que ordena que a los Testigos de Jehová se les permita la entrada a los complejos de vivienda con control de acceso en el área metropolitana, fue radicada el pasado viernes. La nueva petición solicita que se incluya más de una veintena de municipios de la isla que no estaban incluidos en el grupo original que figuraba en la demanda. Hormigueros, Humacao, Isabela, Juana Díaz, Loíza, Luquillo, Manatí, Mayaguez, Naguabo, Patillas, Río Grande, Salinas, San Germán, San Lorenzo, Toa Alta, Toa Baja, Vega Alta, Villalba, Yauco, Aguada, Aguas Buenas, Añasco, Arecibo, Barceloneta, Cabo Rojo, Camuy, Canóvanas, Carolina, Cataño, Cayey, Cidra, Coamo, Corozal, Fajardo, Florida, Guánica, Guayama y Hatillo, son los pueblos que aparecen en el reclamo legal. El recurso fue sometido en el Tribunal Federal de Hato Rey, a través de un interdicto y una petición de resolución expedita, por lo que pidieron una vista antes del próximo 27 de febrero. La organización religiosa alega que los pueblos que no estaban incluidos en la demanda original— Bayamón, Caguas, Dorado, Gurabo, Guaynabo, Trujillo Alto, Santa Isabel, San Juan, Vega Baja y Ponce— se han rehusado a “cumplir voluntariamente” con la orden del juez. Los Testigos de Jehová alegan que el impedirles la entrada en las urbanizaciones con control de acceso, viola su libertad de expresión.
