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.

XIV Encuentro Estatal de Solidaridad con Cuba, 9, 10 y 11 de junio, Bilbao, España

Convening at the 14th State Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba in the northern region of the Basque Country in Spain, over 66 solidarity organizations named the newspaper El País as the “biggest liar” in a resolution that was adopted by all.

The groups characterized El Pais as a media that has excelled in the “art of slandering, manipulating and distorting news and information against Cuba and its revolution”.

The groups also argued that “not even the injection of capital from foreign investment groups” can help El Pais recover from the multiple scandals associated with the outlet, which has had adverse effects on its readership and image.

The resolution adopted by the solidarity groups also reprimanded El Pais for supporting the right-wing opposition in Venezuela, as well as interventions by NATO.

“In short … very friendly to the enemies of the people,” the groups declared.

They plan to send their message to the director of El Pais, Antonio Caño, who they argue has been responsible for the outlet’s neoliberal drift since 2014.

The solidarity movement with Cuba will also send its resolution to other entities that they say share the same interests and ideology as El Pais, which align with the interests of powerful governments and coup-mongers in the region.

The 14 State Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba began Saturday, with organizations gathering to analyze the consequences of the U.S. blockade of the Caribbean country, among other issues.
