Change in Dominican Republic as opposition wins presidency

"Let's go to the Dominican Republic now where the victory by the opposition part in this weekend's elections has marked the end of sixteen years of rule by the Dominican Liberation Party. The P. L. D.. The newly elected president Louis Shabina dare managed to capture fifty two point fifty three percent of the vote, well earlier I was joined on the line from the Dominican Republic's. Republic's capital not Sunday Domingo by bridget wooding, who's the director of the think tank, Obi m I, see a or center for immigration, observation and social, development in the Caribbean bridget started by giving us a bit of context and explaining just how significant the results are very significant, because we're talking about change after sixteen years of ruling party and we're talking. Talking about an almost exact reversal of what happened in the elections for years ago when the President Danilo Medina got in with sixty one percent of the vote against thirty four percent of our be now there, and as you mentioned now I've been there has with the fifty percent needed and Danilov menace stouffer. His candidate from the ruling party got only thirty four percent. percent or so of the vote, so if we're looking at something, which is which is very significant, all the way along President Medina had sought to transfer his popularity to his chosen candidate on solid casteel, but in fact council steel was probably the weakest candidates that he had because unsubtle casteel was involved with public works, which has been notorious for different corruption scandals. But then the President Danilo Medina thought that with Kobe nineteen. He would have things in his favor. There would be a kind of swath vote for the way. He was dating with things, but that was not to be because. Since January two, thousand, seventeen, this being the Green March movement against corruption, and the fact that disparities between rich and poor had been rolling, and there were a number of journalists who actually lost their jobs trying to denounce this, so this became a big issue, the government, totally of note, the evidence and the president. Medina also took further actions to control the judiciary, but what also happened was that the former president Leonel Fernandez split from the ruling party, and that divided what had been a pretty Monolithic party up over the last sixteen years, and he did it by suggesting that certain casteel the nominee President Medina had been put in by false means. But there was a thought that were things to go to a second round up. The ex-president learn finance might have gone in with with consol. But what was the most decisive thing that happened this year was that on the sixteen to February nineteen elections, there was a glitch and e-voting could not take place, and so, what happened then was that the elections were. Left right and center, but this was corruption. And especially, the millennials who had begun to take to the streets along with other you know in many Latin, American capitals so in recent months, really caught a bit between their teeth and the middle class, which had kept the ruling party in power for sixteen years, suddenly began to feel that they've been robbed up the wrong way. The things were things were unraveling now. The government you know is the country's largest employer, but even those that it was keeping in their pay when along a satisfied. Feeling change had to happen, and that was the ticket on which the new president has got in and posted to surprise then I mean it was clear that the tide was turning, but did you ever think that actually he would overturn the sixteen years of Monolithic rule I think all the more recent polls have shown that he's definitely in the lead. I think what was worrying. was that at the last minute that Kobe number? would be used as a cover to dissuade more middle class voters perhaps from going to vote, and also the usual tactics of paying people to vote or giving people handouts prior to elections this time it didn't work with the with the exception perhaps of the government in some of the poorest province near the border, but it didn't work the because people were determined the change and I think this is. Of what's happening in a number of Latin America where people do feel the need for change, and corruption is a big issue, and people feel that it should be tackled also covid nineteen demonstrated again the dispatch between rich and poor because those people who. Are Not documented migrants people have been nationalized. He had don't have access to government programs, and this doesn't look good in the face of the sustainable development goals. It doesn't look good in the face of the international community, so something was going to break I think, but nevertheless I think. People woke up. Fight surprised that it had happened so smoothly and things didn't go to a second round. This Sunday. Do you think that people would just then voting against the status quo, or was there something specific that abner was offering? What made his campaign so successful? I think he was really offering to clean things up, and so if you the bar next to my house today after elections happen, it was saying the whites have gone got in his Richmond from the cradle. They don't need to rob. So, there was the sense that. That These were people who have. had a different kind of agenda, and all walks of life seeing that. that there have been just too much of a monolithic hold on every aspect of society and under change was necessary, but I think the corruption thing was important, and then the fact that normally elections happen on the no glitches, but this glitch that happened in February with the elections and the feeling that there was something going on under. Probably the think was more likely with the incumbent party. I think those were the two decisive things that make people think. Yeah, we do need a change and finally bridget. What can we expect from his presidency? What will apart obviously from corruption be the main issues on the agenda? Well, obviously we have a big health crisis on our hands, and as you can see the Dominican probably is one of the worst countries in the insular. Caribbean and the election mobilization hasn't held so I think we're going to have to go back to the state of a state of emergency. The new governor will also be slightly tied in terms of how far it can go in more imaginative on policy, more imaginative domestic policy because it did do a deal in this S- i Brown with some of the more ultra nationalist sectors of society, and so they're going to have to reckon with that. I think trying to was cleaning up corruption, trying to create more jobs and trying to ensure the disparities between rich and poor are not sensu it'd such that in this pandemic. All can be served healthwise and in future crisis, people are not going to be discriminated one way or another. And that was bridget. Lots of background birdsong on the line from Santa Domingo.

It is eight eight, eight, nine, four one pags editing, nine, four, one, seven, two, four, seven joepags dot com. Let's break down this whole Hispanic versus Latin or Latino thing. Because, we do use them interchangeably. And I suppose. They can can't be used interchangeably like I wrote a message last night about Goya. I said, Hispanics are very smart people, then stupid enough to fall for this attack on this L- this Latino owned company they're much smarter than that. In fact, the left will fight or something like that. And immediately, of course, it's Latina like Polo. Was He's not? He's not Latino noted said he's not Hispanic. said he's not. He's just a white guy. He's a European. All right, so let's break it down. Let! Let's be honest as we can. About Hispanic Latino Latin, Latino all this stuff. This man's Philly CEO of Goya. As you know carries the his family's Grenfell's from from Spain. Right. Is He Hispanic because of that? I would say. Careful monitoring to trick, you know if you don't know you don't know. Early. Paulo's Hispanic or not? I would say, but that's just me because I've asked you your heritage. And you said your Spanish. Spanish not necessarily Mexican although you. People went to Mexico. But they were from Spain right. I have a lot of and censorship subpoenas right. I I'm from Italy countries over. I've often said I'm an original Latino. And nobody's ever challenged me on that ever. Not even once because this is my perspective and I'm backing this up with good information. Latino is just the Spanish word for Latin socially Italian for Latin. Latin is the language that was spoken in the Roman Empire the Roman Empire controlled that entire swath of land. Basically World they ruled what was known as the world back then before the new world was was discovered over here. So if you spoke Latin in the Roman Empire, the reason why so many languages are based on Latin is because of that the Roman Empire dominance. The Roman Empire Aloe was based on what saying Rome. which is in Italy. So being majority Italian and certainly an original Latino. If, we're based on the language. Now What is Hispanic from? Hispanic. Comes from the Latin Latin word Hispania. Dot Hispania means Latin. Pain or exactly right means Spain. Nailed. In Spanish the word for Spain Espana. Espana is the Spanish form of Hispania. Hispania is what we based the term Hispanic on. So absolutely a thousand percent. The CEO of Goya is Hispanic. To allege that he's not is is stupid. So when I say Hispanics aren't stupid enough to fall for this attack on the Latino owner of a company now. The question is well my using Latino correctly. Interesting question. Let's break that down. Latin as I. said was the language of the Roman Empire. All of the countries in that area now that used to be Rome. Or run and controlled by the Roman Empire. Their languages are based on Latin. The languages are very similar Italian and Spanish is very similar. You could also hear French and with that the pronunciation of French is so weird that if you look at the words, you see that there's a lot of similarity there to. The Romance Language. Language is all day. But. That's where I base the term, Latin or Latino on. It turns out. In, the Nixon administration they were trying to figure out how to properly denote the people who spoke Spanish, but we're in the Americas. So it's actually a made up term probably by Richard Richard Nixon this Latin America thing. We're calling Latin America which I. Guess to Note, South America Central America and the Spanish speaking part of North America, which is Mexico. So, we're calling those people Latino. which was actually based on the term Latin American. People, who spoke Spanish who are the Americas Spanish is based on Latin Latin goes back the Roman Empire. So I think clearly I can call somebody who's heritage is from Spain or Hispania. Hispanic I. Think I'm also saved calling him Latino or Latin. But, if you WANNA get geographically correct about it, Latin Latino probably more is more of a reference politically by Richard Nixon. To geographic location where people speak Spanish, maybe Puerto, Rico and Cuba in in in south. America Central America and of course Mexico. So that's probably more correct. But those of you who think that the the CEO of Goya is not Hispanic are dead wrong. You could not be more wrong. The Term Hispanic is based on the word Spain, in Latin. Now you want to argue the geography of Latin America. That's a pretty good argument to be honest with you. So now that I've said all that Paulo knowing that you're heritage's Spanish and Mexican or Spanish through Mexico. Are You Hispanic or Latino? What are you? Matter our Hispanic so. And if I say you're Hispanic, because white and people see me as a Latina, which I am as a racist, somehow to those who are somehow bothered by the term Hispanic. Dumb it is. So with my tweet yesterday. About Hispanics? Was I right. Or was I wrong. Because you look at the answers, you got it etain Hispanics. You've got idiots saying he's not, Latino. You've entity at saying he's not Hispanic. Actual tweet is this. Hispanics are far too smart than default for the far leftist-marxist attempt to boycott to boycott Goya which is a top Latino owned business in the country. These leftovers from the white supremacist. Democrat Party should be laughed at. The the took the White Supremacist Democrats. Saying Hispanics. I would say here's what I would say. All Hispanics or Latino. Say Better. All the teams are Hispanic. But some believe not all Hispanics or Latino. Does.

The Urgent Need to Make Disciples - Matthew 28:19

The Urgent Need to Make Disciples - Matthew 28:19

"Matthew Chapter Twenty Eight. I nineteen. Go therefore. And make disciples of all nations. baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. So much, we can talk about here so much. We could pray based on just that that one verse in the Great Commission but I want us to pray. Based on one truth. And what? We just read that I think many people often miss. So when Jesus says, make disciples of all nations. That is not a general command to make disciples among as many people as possible. No, that's a specific command to make disciples of all nations Ponta ethnic of all the ethnic groups. Of all the peoples of the world. So Jesus told us to go to every ethnic group. Every people group in the world and make disciples there. So what that means is, if we are not working in our lives, our families and churches to take the Gospel. To people groups ethnic groups places where the Gospel is not yet gone. Then we are disobeying the Great Commission. Disregarding what Jesus is us to do here. And the reason this is so important because. We already. And our lives and families and churches even in our churches. We spend so little on missions. Taking the Gospel to other places, but then even out of that which we spend on missions. Did you know? That ninety plus percent of missions resources in north. American churches so resources we're spending on. Missions are actually going to places in the world where the Gospel has already gone. Where churches have already been planted. Many churches even Christians when we think about missions. We think all over Latin America. We think all over sub Saharan Africa. When reality is by God's. Grace The Gospel has gone all over Latin America. All over sub Saharan Africa Yes. There are small pockets in these places, these regions where the gospels now gone, but for the most part the Gospel has gone disciples of in May, churches have been planted, and it's not wrong by any means to come alongside our brothers and sisters in these places to learn from them to work together for the glory of God, no question at the same time. We're fooling ourselves if we call that emissions when the reality is were still not obeying the mission. When ninety plus percent of our resources are going to places where the gas was already gone, and Jesus has commanded us, not suggested not implied he is crystal clear commanded us to make disciples take the Gospel, the good news of his love to people. Groups places where the gospels not yet gone. So this is why I know why. We radical started urgent, just identify the places in the world, the groups of people in the world, even the countries in the world, where there's the least access to the Gospel and to mobilize resources to go to them. It's called urgent. That's what initiatives call like. Because there's urgent need, there are people dying and going to an eternal hell who've never even heard. Nobody's even brought the good news of how they can go to heaven through Jesus to them so I just wanted to lead us to pray accordingly. Jesus we. We want to obey your. Command. We want to make your grace and your glory known among all the nations. So we pray. That you would. Open her eyes. Inner Churches to see where the Gospel is gone and to work to take the Gospel, their and our lives, and our families, and our churches to go, and to send, and to come alongside brothers and sisters who are in these places, a few brothers and sisters. I think about that we're. Partnering together with these places in the world, God help us to get behind him and work with them. For the spread of the gospel of never heard gotta we pray you think about all these countries that we're focused on an urgent like Syria God for Your glory in the Megan disciples in Bhutan North Korean. Across India and Iraq and Afghanistan and Iran Laos Lebanon Nepal and some Malia and Yemen Jesus Make Your glory known in those places and use us to do it. Don't don't let us sit back. Content to hold onto the gospel or just to take it where it's already gone God, help us to work us our efforts to take the Gospel whereas Never Gone So that disciples made in all the nations. Just as you've called to do for Your glory for the glory of the name of Jesus in all nations. We pray these

"Is. The biggest difference is that there is that Anthony Fauci. There is more independent journals to be like Yo. What's up? Something's up here and -solutely it gets into a bigger issue you know, and not only the fact that you know this whole notion of not having an independent press. That's Kinda challenging this in the context of Mexico and we've talked about. About the sun in the thick before it is still one of the most dangerous places in the world to be journalist, that's also having a direct impact on the pandemic Mexico, so note these words that are very own. He said road for Noteworthy, which is the Journal blog and you say quote, imagine living in a country with restricted freedom of the press. The COVID, nineteen pandemic kits, and with it an overwhelming sea of information every morning at seven am. The president of this country hosts a media conference where he openly Denies Science, the chief epidemiologists makes up elaborate technical excuses to support these claims rather than contradict his boss together. They broadcast their messages on national television for three hours a day. Saying hundreds of things that are impossible to verify there is no fourth estate strong enough to hold them accountable. That country is dot dot dot dot Dot Mexico Ding Ding Ding Ding it. Also could be but I see the United States. You know I. IT extends sadly beyond Mexico Yeah Yeah so recently Latino rebels reported about how independent media in Mexico they've launched the campaign doormat. AMEX Hashtag Dome. AMEX which has taken seriously medical to fight against misinformation and also the spike of violence against women. That is the country's other pandemic. While this is happening, so we wanted to share it clip from our friend journalist, Laura Flanders. She had panel on her show to talk about this campaign, so let's listen to a clip of Jordan Melendez who is director of an NGO called fucked well.

The region has surpassed the United States and Europe in terms of the number of people infected Brazil has the second highest rate over one point two million in the world after the United States and bit who Chilean Mahyco are also among the most affected countries in the region.

"As we watch a spike in covid nineteen cases in the United States, there's ongoing desperation in Latin America some perspective, the region accounts for nearly half of the world's cases in the past two weeks one Ferraro is our South America Bureau. Chief. He joins us from Bogota Colombia one. It's good to have you here. Good to be here. One is we have been reporting and our global coverage. Every area is unique especially when it comes to transmission, what are the areas of concern in Latin America and how is the virus spreading? Well there are two countries that really stand out which are Brazil and Mexico. Brazil now has the second highest number of deaths in the world after the United States, and also the second highest number of cases more than a million cases, and then the other country is Mexico, which is also where the numbers are also rising really fast in terms of deaths, and and also infections, so the things that really stand out about these two countries or their governments both are populist governments led by leaders who have downplayed the danger of the virus and. And have questioned scientific evidence and scientific recommendations, and have really pushed for their economies to remain open, and so we've seen a confusion among the populace in both of these countries where these leaders have have called on on the economies to remain open or to reopen in the case of Brazil, and of course. I mean that has been terribly confusing for a lot of people who were unclear exactly well. What is the danger here? I mean if our president is telling us that we can go out into the street and work well, why can't we? In, Brazil there's been really sort of this battle between. Your Bolsonaro, who's the president and various governors and mayors? Governors and mayors, a number of them in a number of them very prominent, and are leading some important cities and states have really pushed for not exactly a lockdown, but social isolation measures and calling for businesses to close non essential businesses. This has happened in a lot of places in Brazil, but there's been a push poll with the federal government which has called for things to reopen, and now in effect in Brazil. A lot fewer people who are abiding by a social isolation measures, and of course the virus is spreading very very quickly in that country. As far as the numbers are concerned and the impact, do you feel it's an accurate representation as to what's really happening? Oh, no, not at all in Brazil, researchers are saying that instead of the one point one million. Who are infected, which is the official count based on on the tests that have been performed? There are actually as many as seven million or more people. It really depends on the on the university or who the researcher is. No one knows of course swore, but they talk about much larger numbers Mexico on the other hand is a country that has very low testing very very low testing levels in that country. Country and the government has made that has made testing a very low priority and a lot of people in these countries I mean who die of covert and have never been tested may have never been in a hospital never seen by a doctor. We see that in their death certificates at it says I'll. They died of respiratory failure. Respiratory problems very good chance that what they actually died of Covid nineteen. Are there any measures that seem to be working as far as curbing transmission? Are there some some notes of success? Yeah, most definitely I think that if you look across this whole vast region, we're talking about well over thirty countries. More than six hundred million people across a very very large area, there are pockets of success. In Columbia which is a pretty big country, fifty million people, and has a pretty low level of deaths and infections. I think the the bright spot. Here is the city of medigene. We're talking about a city with two point five three million people they have actually put out this application, and so they have called on people to a register their information, and so forth and provide information about what their needs are. They need food. If they need help, they need a doctor. What their health concerns are and. And so forth, and so the government can quickly react and health authorities. Can that way also track if there are clusters of of covid nineteen in certain areas of the city and help isolate, and so forth as someone who lives in south, America, and someone who reports in South America. What are the questions you have? What are the unknowns that you want answered? Well I think the big unknown I want answered is is exactly. How widespread is this? And how many people have actually died from this disease? There's deficient healthcare because people are afraid to go to the doctor in some of these countries, actually a you have people who believe that there's actually some kind of government conspiracy. Against them in that covert is just something that's made up by the government, and also because the testing are low lower than in the United States lower than in Europe. Then we don't have an accurate reading, and then of course here in this region, we also have authoritarian governments you know, and so there's there's there's a lack of clarity do do we really know what's happening in Venezuela? Authoritarian brutal government there they in the past have tried everything. They can't hide their healthcare disaster. If you look at their official numbers, things are wonderful in Venezuela I. Don't think anybody believes that, but it's very hard to report and find out the truth in countries like that. One for our South America Bureau chief one thanks for joining us.

"So tweets you talked about how all of these protests that you're seeing. Have really brought up a lot of memories because you grew up in Brooklyn after you arrive there when you were twelve and. People forget that in the eighties and nineties, and I covered these stories New York. City was a very divided place. So you brought up the murder in one thousand, nine, hundred nine of Yusef Hawkins. He was a young black teenager who was killed by a mob of white teenagers in Benson Hers Brooklyn. He was literally just at the wrong place at the wrong time in the wrong neighborhood because he was black. There was also the nineteen eighty-four murder of eleanor bumpers a she was an elderly, disabled black woman who was shot and killed by police when they tried to victor from her own apartment. In the Bronx, there was also this terrible case in nineteen ninety-seven. This was the brutal assault of Abner Louima Haitian, American from Brooklyn. Who is sodomized by a police officer in a precinct in Brooklyn and I`Ma Diablo from Guinea shot at Nineteen Times in a hail of forty-one bullets in Nineteen, ninety nine. You were in Brooklyn. You were in New York City. We have lived through this before and. We thought we had made progress. Yes, actually. Week I've been thinking about it a lot and I have spoken about it to my three brothers I was twenty years old when Yusef Hawkins was murdered Yusef Hawkins. Was For me the first time that I started following very closely and part because he was the same age as one of my brothers and. Immigrant parents, not all but many. My grandparents harbor this illusion that if they're black. US borne or foreign born child is polite. Works hard in school does all the right thing that they might be able to. Escape. The brunt of American racism. But for my parents that case. Did something. My parents and myself for the first twelve years of my life I had grown up under booth dictatorship to develop dictatorship in Haiti so there's a kind of caution about authority, then about Filante is about mobs, and so you come with that with that fear already, but I remember after USA faulk inside I decided my brothers and I were going to the protests. There was a big marks. I think September one thousand, nine, hundred nine in downtown, Brooklyn, where they were attempting to cross the bridge to march to city hall, and I remember looking over at them during the march and thinking, would I be marching for them one big? So, of course that whole notion of the good, immigrant, being exempt from police violence, war-shattered by the police shooting of people like I'm a Dr Low. And then there was the atrocious abuse of Abner Louima so all of that. You know we marched lot. Even my parents, who were not very political people at all went to one of the protests at that time, so it was a very volatile and really urgent seeming time, so there are echoes of the protests then here but now. To see the whole range of different people in young people at this current protests is very encouraging. Was this. Really beautiful image that I saw the other day ever protest in New York of young Haitian and Dominican people marching side-by-side in the protests, and that was so heartening to see like all the coalitions that are built in think of this Maria. We've all been inside our homes for the most part right unless sir. Essential workers. We've been inside and the pandemic that we've been hearing about. That can kill us at his kill so many people I know, but if that couldn't keep people in, when cannot emphasize the urgency of Fatty. NUFF, that everybody who steps out on the street is saying that this is so important that I'm potentially risking my health to stand out on the street and protest. You brought up those recent images of the Haitian flag right next to the Dominican. And these protesters linking arms in a message that is saying you know black lives matter so, what are you thinking in terms of Latinas? Data Latina ex people and the conversation about anti blackness that runs deep in Latin America, and the Caribbean well. Thankfully, the young people are already having that conversation right, but I I would say to folks. My folks might people is that we are seeing and we have seen what entire blackness does from this very concrete moment? Of this man being suffocated on the ground to people being shot in their cars when they're pulled over people being shot in the back and the stories that we don't see, but here about if the.

The global hotspots where coronavirus is still killing thousands

"As we've observed a bunch of times on this show, which seemed to be a pretty good spot in Australia at the moment when it comes to it, but that's certainly not the case elsewhere in the world. More than eight million people have now been infected by covid nineteen, according to Johns Hopkins University. It took nine days for the number of infections to grow from six million to seven. Seven million and less than eight days to get to the latest millions either pandemics, not slowing down. So what's happening elsewhere in the world nominee? Will it still going I mean? The United States tailed off a little bit, but that's largely because of New York state are lots of states in the United States which are now increasing, and there are some states that look as if they actually might be suffering from a second wave like south. Carolina and the league table of cases. Is America Brazil Russia India UK Spain Italy Peru. which gives you a sense of Latin America particularly, South America is a prominent source of new cases, which confirms what people already had a lot of which is Latin. America is a significant hotspot. As indeed is Russia, and Russia has had to revise its. Deaths reporting because it had all these eight, hundred, thousand, nine, hundred thousand cases and I think it was wondering reporting rows of handful of deaths, which made the WHO query their statistics, and they've rapidly revised that we oversee the far more deaths than they're admitting to. So that's the league table at the moment, and it is spreading, and you could argue that in some parts of the world are beginning to see a second wave. China's obviously worried about this outbreak in the. Food Market in Beijing and trying to control that very very quickly. So, what does this mean for us here in Australia where we're sort of? Increased pressure open borders especially to business people well. It says that they're still a huge amount of virus circulating in the world. It's not going away, it's. And it's spreading to countries that have had small epidemics up until now and growing and second waves look as if they may be happening, so you'd be nuts if you open the border to the United States. Russia India UK still far too much. In a lot of European countries still too much virus circulating, there are some countries in the world where there's not very much, and which you could consider that, but very very careful, and in fact, the Chinese think that the source of the cases that they've got in Beijing where Chinese people returning from overseas, so it's a high risk situation when the so much virus around the. The world, so a lot of countries around the world did lockdown, and we've done that here in Australia New Zealand and stuff like that, but if it's still increasing at such a rapid right in so many countries around the world, what were the point of lockdowns? Well for the countries that lockdown early? They've had success. Tens of thousands of people have died the point is that most countries with a bad pandemic. Countries that didn't lockdown early enough, and it already established itself. That's the problem. The problem is not the lockdown lockdown. Social distancing is actually the only thing that works and they have instituted late, and the viruses got away from them. But. It's not benefited their country. Their economies are shattered. They're not able to come back fully. People are frightened to come out the statistics from the United States show that most people are still quite nervous about coming out, even though the trying to open up the economy, because it's still a lot of virus around, whereas if you look at a Sturdier with lockdown and. and. New Zealand people are not so nervous about coming up because they know there's not much virus around, so allows us to return much more strongly. In terms of our economy, the problem those countries face where the still seeing an epidemic upenn significant pandemic is nothing to show for it. They've got an economy that short they've had a field lockdown was not failed. Failed more people would have died. Had they not locked down and the natural immunity in the population that tiny levels maximum, twenty percent, some countries like Sweden, maybe only nine or ten percent, so all these people died for what when they could have actually shut down earlier, and this is just like nineteen eighteen, the cities that in places that shutdown earlier their economies. Economies bounced back better and more fulsomely and places. That waited around

"Well Brazil sauce, our universal health system as a unique characteristic that the three government levels. The states the federal and the municipalities are independent, and they can make their own decisions, so governors and mayors can make their decisions as long as they don't go against the federal law. The federal law hasn't stated anything so far, so governors have been able to determine what they want to do, but this has not been successful all over Brazil in the same way. Tell me more about that I. mean it's a huge country, and there are many different communities in it, so which are the communities that are being hit hardest by this? At the communities that usually the communities that have less infrastructure less sped availability less structure for primary health care. LESS ICU bats. That's capacity is a home a which would those communities be wh? Where where are they located in? Who are is living in those communities? Well we are talking about the Brazilian citizens in the North States and did not northeast states. So, it's usually the poorer communities urine Sao Paulo described the situation in the FA. Vela's the in your community. The! While some metropolitan region is also very heterogeneous so There are some neighborhoods where there's a ability of resources. People eventually can be at Home Office because they are still employed and they have homes in some of the valleys, people don't have jobs. Many of them cannot stay isolated in within their houses and some of them. Don't have salaries to rely on to feed their children, so they have to go to the streets to work to get some money to make some money. What about indigenous communities in the? Or the more remote areas of Brazil. HOW VULNERABLE WITH THOSE COMMUNITIES! They would be very vulnerable because they have lower immunity, but. Coffee it is a announced that the attacks populations so if the the white people in fact? don't go there and up. There won't be any cases, but in in one or two communities there have been context. The government stopped releasing. The numbers of people who were dying and the figures were difficult to get a hold of their also been real questions around testing in Brazil and perhaps people don't even know how wide spread this disease actually is. How concerned are you about the? A very much because we could not. Make sure that the public policies are right before we have guests enough test so we are waiting for the test to come. They have not been here nowadays. There are some policies in some different states, regarding population testing and testing in different ways, but the availability is not for the whole population. So this is not easy. Health experts at the University of Washington were predicting more than one hundred twenty five thousand deaths from covid nineteen in Brazil given those alarming figures. How likely is it? Do you think that the president will reconsider his Or lack thereof to tackling this an act quickly before it's too late. I think it's already it for some cases. It's already too late. But this is a political year, so they're going to be probably municipal elections by the end up the year, so it's delicate moment politically speaking so I, don't really see how the the president is going to change his direction, and as you said I mean, the population is still split even after the most recent election. Oh Yes oh, yes, the most recent collection! There were more people who voted for him so Nowadays there at the thirty percents that still support him strongly, but there's starting to be a movement saying we are seventy percent, so, but it's still slow and It's just starting Anna Maria I appreciate your time this morning.

And I have to spell that website because I want to be sure that people understand the the joke in the. Idea of what it is, but it's. Guay as in Uruguay and you are somebody who has written guidebooks about it right a website about it and you've lived in Uruguay for twenty years so I feel that Guru. Guay seems like an appropriate. Definition of what you do. And it also means that people stop confusing Uruguay Paraguay. Okay excellent. which is the bane of Uruguayans lives sure we actually do not have a show on Paraguay, and it's not for lack of trying, and I'm trying to line up for next week, so so hopefully we may have won back to back and then talk about the difference, but we're not talking about Paraguay today. We're talking about Uruguay which is not how the Uruguayans Sat, but we'll get into that. Karen, why should someone go to Uruguay? Never two types of people that come to Uruguay. They're all the type of people that have been everywhere. And, so they looking for the last off the radar destinations to go to and when they arrive, they'll love to say after I am the only person that I know. That's team to Uruguay so that on one hand and then on the other hand. People who do their research? They are interested in going to Latin America. They do their research. They looking for a safe country, especially as so female travelers for example than King. South America they all googling, and then they've like. Hey, there's this small country that's that between Argentina and between Brazil, that just seems to have all of these amazing statistics of development, how is this and then they look at it more closely and they discover that not only. Only, is it a progressive country and it's been a progressive country for hundred and fifty years with complete separation of church and state written into the Constitution the kind of country where women were given the vote well before places in Europe's of where the eight hour day has been in place for over hundred years, and then the look annul say hey, and it's also got amazing beaches and from what I can see. Nobody goes those beaches and it's got. Wine and how come I've never tried one of those wines? And then you know when they start, and they'll really looking into the find my website, et Cetera. Then they'll go. Oh, my God. It's got all this amazing world class live music, and I go to these shows and be up next to an amazing musician, and it won't even cost me ten dollars, and then somebody will say the beef is just amazing. Then somebody's like, but I'm a Vegan, and it's like, but now you could even get good vegan food in Montevideo, so yeah I mean basically. Laid back small by South American standards. It's very large compared to a European country, but it's small enough to be able to get around, and it's developed, and so it's kind of like a good start. A country when Latin America is consumed. It's not in your face. Excellent and we did mention that I'm pronouncing this Uruguay and we talked about this ahead of time, because that tends to be the English pronunciation. If I was from there, I would say it how. Do. So without ooh guy. So when you can't people on the football terraces, football's huge in Uruguay and you'll hear people saying ou y Ou do which sounds totally tribal, and you think about it. Which is Kinda funny?

Mexico reopens economy after two-month COVID-19 lockdown

"Take you to Mexico now the country looks set to Paul's ten thousand deaths from corona virus this is the second highest toll in Latin America off to Brazil the authorities recognize that Mexico is now at the peak of the pandemic never the less they'll gradually reopening the country from today the first of June this week to journalists on a government level house in Mexico City M. what Mexicans think then of the idea to start of starting to ease the look down on the camera when the peak of the pandemic is is ongoing in the country Hey when Mexicans are deeply divided about these government decision many are uncertain the relief that the economy is re opening because more than half of the population making a living in the informal sector and do not have a fixed salary so for them this lockdown has been especially hard but on the other hand there is another part of the population which stinks that easing the lockdown is very contradictory since specially now the corona virus is spreading really quick so these people are worried a friend even more sharply increase of the cases and the I W. I had the flu shot and this is what he told me the decision for re opening Mexico is being taken since its economy won't receive a long time to slow down situation however for a successful re opening the publishers should be should commit themselves to to be respectful of the measures required to control the street of the disease we are not sure if the city will be possible in Mexico so it's highly improbable to see a rise in the number of cases during the next days there is the after re opening challenging the out by the media and the extremely health services it's what every country is bouncing right then our public health versus the need to get the economy back running again so so what changed what we see today Mexico in terms of using the lock down the economy will be allowed to resume operations and that's the government's case it would be done gradually and the friendly in each part of the country for example in Mexico CD that so far has been dead the epicenter of the pandemic the schools we continue to be close but the construction will be respected also restaurants would be allowed to operate that thirty percent of their capacity be a production so will be respected and the seas has been particularly because of the debate since the government has considered it an essential activity so we should point out that Mexico in Mexico the lockdown has a strong get western he advised by the government and imposing some places such as schools and working centers but not to the general population so Mexico is a country of many different realities and some people carry out on working through all this time and somehow stop the work depending on how old they are absolutely it's the same the world over isn't it is is there any clear idea then why we're looking at the situation in Mexico with a maternity right from corona virus is so hard to just behind Brazil's when the mentality rate is really high he did so one of the highest in the region G. journey so nine point eight percent on the Alberta check over that of the people is fifty nine years so is leading junk considering like comparing to other countries especially in Europe so expressing that the reason behind east another up and then make a **** the country before the coronavirus which is over sixty Mexico with the U.

"C. Safeway or yes we can is a rallying cry for justice freedom and dignity that was born from the heart and mind of civil rights revolutionary. Dolores wet the chant of Si Se. Puede his been taken up by many movements. From Barack Obama's two thousand eight presidential campaign to the fight for climate justice to the continued struggle for workers rights to Spain's anti austerity campaigns of 2019. Martin Luther King Junior said that the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice we all know that it only bends towards justice because of individuals willing to put themselves on the front lines of the Civil Rights Struggle Laura Sweater who turned ninety on April tenth. Twenty twenty has never left the front lines. She's a force of nature that has transformed the lives of those who grow and harvest the food that sustains each of us creating the phone welcome movement with Cesar Chavez she is the mother of the modern labor movement also came up with the idea that consumers have the power to shape and push industries like great growers to improve farm worker conditions. She then that. Labor negotiations to memorialize will can benefit in the nation's first of their kind collective bargaining agreements. Deloris is a fearless and incredibly effective advocate legislation. She championed the landmark building nineteen sixty to allow people to take the California driver's examination in Spanish. And and she's never stopped last year. She helped enact leads to create California's Fund for safe and affordable drinking water Quetta who describes himself as a born again feminists consciously incorporated feminism into her fight for workers rights and push Gloria Steinem and the one thousand nine hundred sixty s to expand the feminist movement to include issues of race thereby helping make feminism and Movement for all women not just white women from the beginning. Dolores wet has also been an environmental champion fighting to protect workers from harmful pesticides sanding shoulder to shoulder with native Americans at Standing Rock and picking up litter after every rally she led. I Talk About a fiftieth anniversary with my hero and living legend Dolores Wetter Kelly. Working Fourteen hour days with Heff Foundation to make sure farmwork has have access to protective equipment food and benefits during this pandemic. And if you thought you knew everything about Delores also talk about why she loves burning man. Dolores where are you right now all right now? I'm in the belly of the beast. I'm in Bakersfield California Bakersfield and all of Kern county. You are going through really rough times right now. Dolores is a lot of people that have been laid off. I think it's over a thousand oil workers that have been laid off. One of the company is completely. Shut Down Lager. People EARN EMPLOYEES CIVILLY TRAGIC. But we know at the same time. And that's why we see that our air is a little cleaner a usually here in Kern county. We are women the worst areas of pollution for air pollution in the country. And we know that that air pollution really affects not only the physical health especially if the children but also the mental health of children. Here we have Not only to freeways that can make your highway ninety nine and highway five of but then we have all of the pollution that comes from the Agricultural Industry Caesar industrial growers that have not really converted their tractors They're so easy in a lot of diesel. It's a big struggle and when you try to bring to the attention they consider this to be an attack instead of thinking. Okay what do we have to do to make them more economically friendly jobs for people so these are the challenges that we have ahead of us as we try to convert all of the fossil fuel industries into industries. That are more friendly for everybody. So deloris in the late fifties and sixties when you have founding the farmworker movement and and really bringing those issues to the full when whether environmental issues like drinking water and air quality and pesticide runoff. How did those issues fest? Come to your attention right at the beginning at the very beginning you know. I grew up in Stockton California which is also like a cultural area. I was in a field in. I see this what I thought was fog rolling in but I thought how can you have fog in the summertime? Well it was a pesticide residue. That was rolling in. That was one of the first things that farmer who's complained about about the effects of Pesticides. And so we had so many cases of pesticide poisonings. Sometimes Terry crews like thirty. Forty people would been poisoned at the same time. How can this happen? Slow regard for the health farm workers so one of the first contracts that I signed a day. Employers tell exactly how many pesticides they were going to spray and where they were going to be spread out and then we passed legislation to make sure that the appeals are posted of when they sprayed some of these dangerous pesticides and then we work very very hard to get some of these dangerous pesticides restricted and banned forever and unfortunately a lot of pesticides we had because like Didi they were then shipped to Mexico to Latin American countries. And so here but we had all of these farmers could children that. Were being bored with these horrible deformities being born without arms without legs so horrific here you had children in Mexico and parts of Latin America. That were having exactly the same type of affection disabilities that were coming from pesticides

"Welcome to our exchanges and Goldman Sachs markets update for Friday. May Each Week. We check him with leaders across the firm to get there quick. Take what they're watching it. Markets Jake Global Head of corporate communications here. Goldman and my guest. Today is Jan Rot. Who's the head of emerging markets international sales and foreign exchange sales teams? Your New York less agenda on the program back in January. Welcome back thanks Jake. It's great to be back. You know I was just thinking. It's amazing that last time we sat down to one of was the end of January. And you ask me the one number. I was looking at it and at the time. It was a number of confirmed Kobe cases in the US we had five confirm Cova cases and no person to person transmission. It's amazing how much has changed since then it is indeed. What's the top story in markets? But you're watching this week tune in my background in emerging market specifically in Latin America. I've been closely watching a spread cove in nineteen across Latin America given. They're still a few weeks away from the peak in each country's response to the health crisis has been quite different and Argentina the government enacted a strict lockdown early on which is lifted the president's popularity despite the lockdown slamming the brakes already struggling economy in Mexico on the other hand sanitary protection measures in suspension of non essential activities. Came later in the game and asked capacity is already low to begin with but perhaps the most worrisome is in Brazil given the viruses most widespread there but also because it seems to be further polarizing the society. Just this past weekend alone. There was an anti lock down protests organized by the pro government supporters and. Our bowls have been resignations. Key figures from within the government okay. Jen would've key themes you heard from clients around how are about these dynamics. You describe your overall clients have a pretty negative outlook on Latin American is. They don't really think. Markets are pricing the impact of the crisis or lower commodity prices in asset markets in countries seem to be using more develop market playbook to deal with the crisis by cutting rates dramatically letting their currencies depreciate. We've seen clients very active betting on further ethics appreciation and lower rates in countries. Where they're still room to cut. And what are some of those countries that have adopted more developed markets approaches? Really all of them this Wednesday along. Brazil cut rates to a record level of three percent. We've also seen inter-meeting cuts from places like Mexico Chile Colombia since the crisis began. Jen Looking ahead. What what piece of economic news data is on your radar screen so most closely keeping an eye on places where lockdowns are easing more potential per second wave of the virus right now. The market seems to be pricing more v-shape recovering many assets and investors are discounting the current economic data. Which is we all know if we see a pickup in cases our so we have to go back to another lockdown scenario. The market pricing V-shaped recovery using their shout. You've been working remotely for Awhile now. What's what's one of the top things you've learned about doing your sales and trading jobs remotely interesting. What am I last flying trips at the end of February I had a client asked me how effective I thought would be. You WanNa work from home scenario. I told him dictate to fifty five percent of this. I'd say I've been very pleasantly surprised. That was doing other technologies. We actually have probably been around. Eighty five eighty five to ninety percents effective as if we are working from two hundred West we really being more deliberate about connecting with our teams and I find that in some ways. I'm actually speaking with more people than I do. Being in the office JEN. Thanks for joining us again. A hope to see you in person again soon. Thanks Jake such time as always. I appreciate the time.

"The will of the people But also you know then recognizing that in the vacuum of power the most radical elements of the opposition are the ones who have moved in to fill in the vacuum. So I got into you know you can. You can have a nuanced position and say an AH express criticisms of leadership. Also you know taking into account that Invited the OI asked to to the audit of the election survey found irregularities he immediately turned around and denounce him again. You have to think it's funny in. Every single left is sort of governments and leaders leaders leaders in America. They detest in Bolivia. It was quite the opposite in Bolivia they were actually seen as a closed legitimising to apple and the right did not trust Russell. Dos so you talk to people on the ground and they tell you basically what's going on you know when you when you talk to people when you talk to conservatives yeah you get. Did you get the same sort of criticisms you might expect but when you talk to people on the left and believe you people are mad about the fires because we have very close to agribusiness People are mad about how he is handling of you know. LGBT Q.. And abortion rights because he was very getting very close to evangelical groups So you know there are all these nuances that people. People don't understand It's the same in Chile right. I mean Chile. You have conservative government in this guy in this up in the opposition seems wing and they're trying to overthrow this neoliberal but reality -ality people who are very very complex things you know the release to the Constitution and amending the Constitution and they end. The government actually now offered a lot of different Outlets to solve it so you know I and they're calling actually for new constitution and maybe next year. They're going to vote to see. They're going to rewrite it so again. You know yeah yeah I mean a lot of really bad abuses of the police were happening in in Chile But you know you can't also condemned blanket can issue a blanket nation. I say all the Chilean government is massacring people in not responding to the protests. When in fact they are doing? But you're also you can also say they have committed serious abuses and they've made a lot of mistakes at the beginning just like able did so you know again Left to right not so not so easy. I really wish it was because it would make got. My job is just to take it out of your logical position and you say this is the. That's my point because it's interesting because I do feel like Latin. America is incredibly complex but the US policy in Latin America is actually still looking at through the simplistic Lens. So when you mentioned like the O. A. S. the fact that trump those really interesting the moment Evo Now I'm not surprised. You know the White House. The moment able resigned. There's a statement from the White House us about Bolivia but President Trump I think is only common about Chile was at a gaggle when he does it in front of the helicopter and he said I know a lot of Chilean's ends are really great people that should work it out and it's kind of you know the US being involved in here is clear that at least trump policy it's still kind of on the pendulum on the right. So anyone you know the Nicaragua was in the Bolivia's Cuba's and the minister of the world That that that's that's bad for. US Policy so they celebrated Morales leaving for sure that all this you can see you can see how a a lot of things aligned with US policy priorities. You could also see how yeah issuing statements legitimizing them help but there's also is not so easy to see see that there is direct involvement at least not at the stages right so I mean again. I'M NOT GONNA sit here and there's been no direct can also sit here and say there has been because I I haven't seen any clear evidence other than yes. I mean other than statements and things that seemed to encourage you know You know regime change quote unquote that you know aligned with the ideological Ideological sort of you know Prison of the White House. Now we know that the why this White House and the State Department and is is in disarray. Incomplete political disarray. And so I I also I don't know I wouldn't ask cry. This level of efficient metal meddling in Latin America to these people either. At this point I feel like Yeah there could be benefits for for them taking certain positions or encouraging leaders to add but at the same time there it hasn't been I don't I haven't seen any evidence of a coherent policy. or Co he's a policy to encourage all these things to happen all at once right and we don't know right we don't know so you're right about the State Department and the like we don't know what's going on but it's an easy. You know people people who follow what's happening I I do know what's happening on the ground. I mean I do know what's what's been the political battles in the political pressures that that has been developing for for for all for all these years in America that sort of exploded in this way. I mean again if you haven't been paying attention to Bolivia and you sign up on twitter right now you see. There's an indigenous Socialist leftist president has been ousted in a coup and conservative right wing government aligned with the. US It's taking power and that seems like a very easy narrative narrative to to believe and trust. But but of course are my by my job and one that has been following for such a long time. You realize it's not a simple right and and then just to finalize it because while this is all happening then you have the president of Cuba saying hey guys your policies to us off a work and so I mean it feels like the last time I had you on. We were talking about Venezuela earlier this year. And I'm Kinda like Cuban minutes whether become like they're not even on the radar in a lot of ways now so what you know. What I mean like was interesting because in Cuba where there's no real democracy to be? It could be defended or like like what went when they hand chosen president quote unquote of Cuba. You know who was who was picked By mind you buy the vegetarian brother of the previous leader of Cuba. You know. He'd says democracies under attack in Bolivia. Like well you better interest. This went out because I don't know if you're qualified speak about democracy eight of the same thing with with someone who has refused to allow a if You know free and fair elections events because he is. He's paneling of the economies of of of of the country has been dismal and all all credible polls show show. He's an incredibly unpopular president and he will be voted out because no president could survive the disaster. SPAS is. He's an actor so you know there's a there's a tube countries resent are now. Yeah they might be I mean even in the case of Chile was Kinda gloating you know. Look at all these popular uprising. Against you guys gonNA kick cowed this conservative government and Chile but at the same time as well but it basically its own famous people or people because they don't get that say they don't. I made we know. We know about the rampant repression Minnesota and of course in Cuba. Well there's no tradition of having elections. Hey A- Lopez I can talk to you forever but I really appreciate huge like we needed to catch up and Oh thank you for having me. I really say this again I it's very complicated. It's it's incredibly nuance but But you know I. It's also heartbreaking. I feel I what's happening for. I believe in people and for people chilly I mean would you really want is voices ought to be heard and and and and and hopefully democratic and peaceful way. And we're we're seeing that's not the case and I I'm worried about it.

"But rebels Radio Latino rebels radio here in Sunday Sunday November. Seventeen th two thousand seventeen. Listen to audio boom stitcher spotify apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcast and also not no rebels dot Com Latino rebels radio of two thousand and nineteen best multicultural podcasts nominee by IHEART. Talk Radio podcast awards there you go listen guys. Latin America Latin America Latin America Latin America haven't had much much time to absorb what has been going on in places like Chile and Bolivia and I didn't deny and Brazil and and even Beddu Ecuador just all over the region and I just wanted to take a pause and bring someone who can at least begin to address some of the bigger issues here or what. This means politically for the region. So I connected with Elisa Lopez who heads up the Washington Post global opinions page full disclosure I've written a couple pieces for the Washington Post opinion opinions global opinions this this this year and allies my editor. So it's kind of a cool. He's Super Smart Guy and I really love interacting with him so we connected on Friday so we did this on Friday afternoon. He was in the Washington Post media in Harlem. And here's the conversation Mercedes that we had ally thank you so much for being on Latino rebels radio been meaning. I'm just so happy that you're with me. Thank you for having me listen. I actually think we're witnessing the most dramatic political upheavals or changes in Latin America at least in my generation. I mean I think maybe the last ten twenty years and and we haven't even really stopped a look at what has been happening. know the focus is on Bolivia this week but what can you just begin to frame the last couple of months in a way that we can start begin to start making sense out of this because I feel like we haven't there hasn't been a lot of conversations you know what I mean that look at this from a bigger view for sure. What are your thoughts? I mean look. It's it's interesting you mentioned these are these are incredible. You know Beaumont's of traumatic upheaval political. He'll in the last maybe twenty years and we go back twenty years and we are at the start of the pink tight ride the so called pink type the arrival of the of the new sort of leftist governments governments in the region You know so. People have talked About the famous pendulum swings inland American And and if you take kind of simplistic very high level you could say oh well maybe. The pendulum is swinging back to the right. After these governments of the left had their shot. Well is not that clear cut. Of course you know we are seeing If we have to zoom in and then you see what's happening in Chile is you. We have a very popular uprising against the conservative government. What happened in All these different characteristics they left his back in Argentina after being out out of power Then we have a situations in Brazil where Bolsonaro one after after. Of course you know major political scandals impeachment teach men but Lula has now. It's free now he's he's been freed because you know serious serious irregularities In here in the prosecution against him so he's now beads somewhat vindicated However this is not affected necessarily Samaras ability to govern to the gover- so you know if we zoom and of course we we start seeing all the shades in a left and right thing Simple sort of explanation. The pendulum swinging back alive if they all fall apart so so I feel like we what we need to understand. Is that Latin America you know went through has gone through different political local movements economic moments. Each country has had booms and busts And you know I think the one thing that might be able to unify all this. So you see people organizing people organizing and take into streets using social media Really really putting demands on on on on on their government be more transparent to address serious issues of inequality I mean. This is the one thing that hasn't changed in in our continent. Sadly Essay you know. Income inequality is still rampant. Corruption is still very rampton also yet to remember over the past few years we've gone to the Brecht famous scandal. You know which had his tentacles all over the region you know. Practice of people may not know is a major construction firm in based in Brazil. That was bribing. Everybody nobody left and right to get you know to get projects in Latin America big infrastructure projects so you know but this also happy of corruption inequality oldest having changed but we well. We're seeing basically just a huge citizen response to us and organizing social media. Young people have A. Ah kind of like you know just sort of tried to people count. You know. It's interesting because one of the things that I'm trying to get out of all this is one of the arguments agreements is how there's been such a lack of democratic institutions in the history of Latin America and that we're seeing now through social media and organizing is sort of and like like an active like social democracy or like a like popular democracy and and these waves of populism are now becoming being digital and speak a little bit more about that. Because I think you're right I think this whole simplistic right. Left Pendulum US policy you know year things like as and it's like people are rolling their eyes and is it a coup is it not a coup is no I mean look we can debate the the coup a of obviously I think that What's happening in Bolivia is is? It's incredibly sad. You know we. We saying You know the first digital president who was took it was who's chosen on this huge wave of popular support He he's you know he's now gone pressured to leave the country and and now you have a government conservative government I government has sort of like co opted a as as a protest a civil protest movement that started originally to put pressure on on what was happening during the elections. which again you know? It was really really shading what was happening in the election but now but now things sort of like I think. Got Out of hand The military get involved in the opposition is trying to move to fill the vacuum. And of course we're asking supporters. You know he's huge so has has a huge base of support are you know are rising up and and and also pushing back so I mean again if you look at Bolivia Bolivia is is is is is an example of a country that had very weak institutions able Morales had become basically the states. You know he was a very powerful figure He you know he had named you know. The core is the Electoral Council L. Institutions basically responded to him directly because he was such a popular leader and also very a strong leader. Then of course you know this happened you know. Everyone else is out pressured by the military. The one By the police and then the military the one institutions. There's a he was A. He wasn't able to fully penetrate politically. And then of course you have this vacuum There were no constitutional order. You know to to replace him. You know the people who were supposed to replace him and his party have been blocked from this from the answer so you have a situation exactly like you said is is a weekend of institutions everything. Everything has relied on the one one powerful populist leader now Argentina on the on the flip side of that is that well we'll see. We saw a peaceful transition of power right and the left Again you know it was a it's it was recognition you know failed policies brought a right wing government he messed up even more And people got fed up and put the people who are used to be there. They're back in place again. It's what's that's what's supposed to happen in them. Accuracy abuse supposed to have peaceful resolutions to the ballot box but but unfortunately Zine in Bolivia that didn't happen you know I'm intrigued because following these events and you know it feels like I gotta break from work. You Know Rico happen then break and then all of a sudden it was like Ecuador Peru. Haiti You know then you get into Chee Lay Dina and then even the elections in Hawaii and then Lula comes. And that's the thing is like Lula's freed lied on a Friday and able motel is is if resigns on a Sunday you know on a Monday and I'm like what the like the two probably most iconic I don't leftist this leaders of of the modern American politics and and but when I'm when I'm fascinated about this as I see how journalists are trying to deal with this until the story because we're trying and I'm sure you know the post and other people try and I feel like they're still. It's like you're trying to get to like this. Might not be a typical. The pendulum left to right. But I think the reactions are still left and right. You know what I'm saying. I think the audience especially here here Latinos and Latin Americans who are who are dying to find out like who are just thirsty to find information about what's happening line America there's definite interest but it's hard to get into this nuance. So what are you you as a journalist you know opinions guy euro-latin-american est like me like what's going through your remind about that. Well I'm trying to get as close to the ground is possible and we're in in our responsibility. When seeking opinions is we have to look? Ed have to listen to people on the ground. Reach out for the voices You know we. We had a window bustle. Done you know the Bolivian writer. He's he's basically we trying to give nuance to this. You Know He. He's what he wrote a piece for us saying look Allies was not very popular. You know what people people movements it's on the left had also you know demanded pressured him into respecting.

"When I talked with my other colleagues, we're leaving New York or Europe or even some other places of Latin America. The really replies like, Wade, your friends are architects? Yes. Are you having lunch with architects all the time? Most of the time, and we're friends. We're competing one day. We know for the project and the next day we collaborate together and if we don't, well, we're having lunch and just like having fun like it's not something like when you compete against each other, then you cannot talk to each other. It's a very friendly environment on bushy it a lot. Mexican architect free to Escobedo that speaking in studio to James Frederick, we also spoke to Escobedo in design themed may issue of monocle magazine, which is on all self respecting news times. Now. And from design minded buildings. We turn our attention to a groundbreaking online firm with architecture as its focus just ten years ago, Chilean architect. David Basulto created daily a website that's become the world's most visited architecture resource. Santiago based Taylor was created with the aim of spreading architecture news, opinion pieces interviews, and lessen own self submitted projects from around the world and not least to promote design talent from Latin America. But what makes this region such fertile ground for talent, both homegrown and international. This shows produce definite Connie's recently coats up with David Basulto to find out what's behind a new wave of talent cresting in Latin America. What the world seen now coming from letting America is something death us being in the making for many years something tonight, these T went to many Google that gonna make a girl. The menu -tunities. Development and for construction tune that allow architects to sunny hundred anus median laddy CD Puga to start their careers after that in the gun three, same assess in Brazil. Colombia. Governments have put up based focus on building CB infrastructure that have gone into public officials of any new -tunities for young and emerging architects. These process that he's not like in Europe or in the US has taken up the time, but now has provided a strong base for perky take to emerge. I think that architects we're seeing now coming from Columbia, but a why T? Argentina, a and Mexico are part of this new wave of development, and what do you see in terms of how that being received? And I guess possithe does well in Europe and the rest of the world. We have the example of free Disko Kobe though. Who won the commission for this is sometime pavilion a couple of years ago. There was another Chilean architect Raj. You know, what are we seeing in terms of, you know, all they finally being recognized more and more knowing where isolate in headless resources on the leads to a particular steady that is driven by necessity and the generates special kind of innovation. On the other hand, these deal wild continent as many pressing geography. So this combination between the landscape, the nature that is very strong and they need to more with less as particular aesthetics in Latin America. You still have this freedom that no way so-so strain because is when you don't have enough resources, you had two more inventive. Are there any specific has credit? Tricky question, but specific architecture schools or universities in Latin America that. You think stand out that we've seen good amount of design talent coming from will. The, for example, is one of the cell Baldo is betting thirsting Bush by faculty that is really connect with deceit. The hassle, I guess, racial for the future of southbound on the on the fashion, what they do me a these unique school. On the other hand, you have schools with a long tradition, south gotta leak that are producing bay debating woods to that most of the ones that you are hearing about coming from here. But also there were small schools that are being morning novato in the room. So tests university, the Talca, which is located in the south of T lay ruinous cool where students have to build a rather projects, and that keeps them have very down to hair approach to how to work tour. And again, a difficult question, in your opinion, that. Few specific names of young studios that we should be looking out for a thing. The kind of inventory related to doing Alejandro beals from the weight load. It allow young are definitely the were taking out the architects. WTI, they're from T have any stream are ground on the craftsman of architecture. But whatsoever again, that for me, thirsting is Mexico because Mexico City that bears these amazing. It'd be country that from down to south east to west, has different academic throw scenes for should that they testified under, oh, Medo into Arkin. Resort Tam or say, stabby architects, anyone known role. But none. You're stuck to hear more about people like fiscal vandal, like dole would app studio that are very young, but that doing avenue dissing local architecture. The arrow saw over global scale, these Putin Mexico on the map, not just in terms architect to production, but also this course, and in terms of academy with our Mexican architects, boiling broke to that was David basaltic found of Santiago based architecture websites aren't daily and himself an architect from the that Catholic in Chile.
