las_vegas_shooting_4_-_afp_x1x.jpg_792370018

Today´s principal debate should be putting an end to the unbridled arms race that threats human survival.

A few hours after mass shooting that took place at a country music concert, attended by more 40,000 people, near the famed Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, the world is shocked.

But as well as this attack took at least 59 lives and caused nearly 527 injured, people should think about millions of war and conflicts´ victims from other forgotten countries.

After the hard impact of last week’s devastating 8.1 magnitude earthquake, low income communities are still waiting for federal assistance.

Only the Red Cross and other goodwill organizations are packing provisions and giving a basic medical assistance to those people injured and afected by the quake.

Residents in the country’s southern Oaxaca state are organizing to assist each other. Among these groups is a brigade of nearly 50 migrants from Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala, who are supporting communities in Mexico’s poverty-blighted Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Oaxaca. This brigade is working without rest in a country where they usually face discrimination, distrust and abuse.

Irma hit hard the Caribbean countries

Hurricane Irma a record Category 5 storm churns across the Atlantic Ocean on a collision course with Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands

At least 26 dead people  and substantial material losses are reported after the crossing of the hurricane Irma through most of the Caribbean islands.

Nature seems to be charging a pay to human civilization due to climate change. Experts say hurricane Irma and other environmental disasters today are not like in the past because of global warming, pollution and greenhouse gases.

Even though capital defenders denied it, the industries ecological harm is the reason why our planet is on the verge of collapse.

Meanwhile, some governments -like the US- are proud to be out the few strategies to stop human extinction.

Unfortunately, people who suffer natural disasters´ impact are not the minority that owns the resources and industries, but the disadvantaged.

Nowadays, people can see the West has double standards. From one hand accuses countries considered as enemies of violating human rights and, on the other hand, remain silent in the face of flagrant abuses against the civilian population. But the silence is Western countries allies´price.

Few cases of double standards have been as grotesque as the Western adulation for the Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Families that lost their home to Hurricane Harvey await to be evacuated from Rockport, Texas.
After Harvey hit Texas last Friday as a 4 th category hurricane with winds of 130 miles per hour, at least nine people got killled and it left destroyed homes, thousands of refugees, snapped trees, displaced animals, floods and cuts off power to nearly 230,000 people, mostly in the Houston area.

declaracion-lima-alta

The Declaration of Lima, signed by Foreign Ministers and Representatives of Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay and Peru, on August 8, 2017 to address the situation in Venezuela is by far the worst support for that country.

Streets around Boston Common, where the rally took place, were lightly trafficked early on Saturday. Some 500 police officers placed barricades to prevent vehicles from entering the park. They also built a cordon around the site of the rally to keep the two groups separate.
