Bolivia: Four Colombians Detained at Cocaine Factory

first_img Four Colombians were detained at a cocaine factory in the Bolivian department of Santa Cruz (in eastern Bolivia), capable of producing up to four hundred kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride a week, destined chiefly for the Brazilian market, a police chief announced on 16 March. “We’re calculating that the factory had a capacity of 300 to 400 kg per ‘entry,’” said the head of the police Special Force for the Fight against Drug Trafficking, Col. Gonzalo Quezada, who showed the four detained Colombians to the television channel ATB. An ‘entry’ means the weekly cocaine production, he explained. Between twelve and fifteen people, including Bolivians and Colombians, worked at the factory, he added. The others fled as the police approached. Cocaine manufactured in Santa Cruz is destined chiefly for the Brazilian market. A recent report by the UN International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) indicated that the surface area planted with coca in Bolivia has increased for four consecutive years and is now at thirty thousand hectares.

Líderes de la comunidad se unen al Gobernador Wolf en el llamado para poner fin a la discriminación relacionada con la COVID-19

first_img April 07, 2020 Líderes de la comunidad se unen al Gobernador Wolf en el llamado para poner fin a la discriminación relacionada con la COVID-19 SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Español,  Hate Crime,  Press Release,  Public Health Las comisiones asesoras del Gobernador Tom Wolf llaman a la población a permanecer alerta ante las manifestaciones de odio después que la Policía del Estado de Pennsylvania confirmara su compromiso con la prevención y la investigación de los delitos de odio/prejuicio en Pennsylvania. El FBI está advirtiendo sobre un aumento de incidentes dirigidos a los miembros de la comunidad asiática estadounidense debido a la información errónea sobre la pandemia de COVID-19.“Estoy abogando para que todos los residentes de Pennsylvania se opongan al racismo contra las personas asiáticas e informen cualquier discriminación que vean”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “El odio es solo un síntoma más de esta terrible enfermedad. Si queremos ganar nuestra guerra contra la COVID-19, entonces debemos trabajar todos juntos”.El Presidente de la Comisión Asesora del Gobernador para Asuntos de Asia y el Pacífico, Wasi Mohamed, realizó la siguiente declaración:“Todos los residentes de Pennsylvania enfrentan la pandemia de la COVID-19 juntos, pero no a todos se les echa la culpa por ella. A medida que aumenta el número de casos de coronavirus, también lo hacen los casos de acoso y discriminación contra la comunidad de asiáticos estadounidenses y de estadounidenses de las islas del Pacífico (AAPI) en PA.“No se trata solo de violencia física y abuso verbal, sino del boicot a las empresas propiedad de miembros de la comunidad AAPI, la negación de alojamiento público y la negación del acceso a las medidas de alivio. Los más de 2 millones de trabajadores de la salud de origen AAPI que están en la primera línea de respuesta a esta pandemia son quienes sufren gran parte de este abuso.“No solo debemos detener las formas abiertas de discriminación contra los miembros de la comunidad de AAPI, sino que no debemos olvidarlos en nuestra respuesta a esta crisis. Para luchar contra este racismo y xenofobia, debemos alzar la voz contra las declaraciones xenófobas y la información errónea, garantizar que las comunidades AAPI tengan acceso a la información de asistencia financiera y de salud, y patrocinar a las empresas de origen AAPI que están paralizadas por esta crisis. En estos tiempos, es crucial que nos unamos, que apoyemos a nuestros vecinos y comunidades de origen AAPI y avancemos juntos como Estado para satisfacer las necesidades de todos los residentes de Pennsylvania”.Los legisladores y líderes de otras comunidades expresaron su apoyo a la comunidad asiática e hicieron un llamado para poner fin a toda la discriminación.“Queremos recordarles a los residentes de Pennsylvania que es inaceptable tolerar insultos raciales, ataques xenófobos y acoso, especialmente durante esta pandemia mundial”. Esta mal culpar o acusar a los asiáticos estadounidenses por esta crisis”, dijo la Representante Estatal y miembro de la comunidad asiática estadounidense Patty Kim. “Los patógenos no discriminan. Estoy lista para ayudar y proteger a todo aquel que sea discriminado durante la crisis de COVID-19. Para continuar, no duden en comunicarse con mi oficina para obtener asistencia directa y denunciar estos casos de abuso y acoso. Permanecemos unidos en nuestra lucha contra el odio”.“Los delitos contra cualquier persona en base a su raza, credo, género, país de origen u orientación sexual son absolutamente inaceptables”, dijo el líder demócrata del Senado Jay Costa Jr. “No hay lugar para la discriminación en Pennsylvania en ningún momento. Pero como estamos en medio de una crisis de salud pública, ahora más que nunca es necesario que trabajemos juntos y que nos apoyemos mutuamente lo mejor que podamos”.“Me entristece escuchar la retórica de odio dirigida a nuestras comunidades asiáticas”, dijo la Representante Estatal y Comisionada de la Comisión de Mujeres de Pennsylvania, Carolyn Comitta. “Este es un momento crucial para que nos unamos y trabajemos juntos para proteger a nuestros amigos, familias y vecinos. La única manera de poder superar este brote sin precedentes es mediante la unión de todos los residentes de Pennsylvania. No podemos permitir que los actos y palabras de odio nos distraigan a la hora de combatir esta crisis”.“Los actos sin sentido de odio, violencia y microagresiones contra los asiáticos y asiáticos estadounidenses no representan a los Estados Unidos que sé que podemos ser”, dijo la Comisionada de la Comisión de Mujeres de Pennsylvania y miembro de la comunidad asiático-estadounidense, Itha Cao. “Los asiáticos no son el ‘otro’. Hemos sido parte de la trama estadounidense durante generaciones y lo seguiremos siendo. Pónganse de pie, alcen la voz y hagan lo correcto, no lo fácil”.“Ahora es el momento en que los residentes de Pennsylvania deben unirse para brindarse apoyo mutuo mientras enfrentamos este momento difícil. También es momento de dejar en claro que aquí el odio no tiene lugar”, dijo el Comisionado Adrian Shanker, Comisión de Pennsylvania sobre Asuntos LGBTQ y Comisión de Relaciones Humanas de Pennsylvania.“A medida que sufrimos y sobrevivimos este momento difícil, alentamos a todos los residentes de Pennsylvania a unir esfuerzos en la batalla contra la pandemia al abrazar a todos los ciudadanos sin distinción de raza, origen étnico, género, discapacidad, etc.”, dijo la Presidenta de la Comisión Asesora de Asuntos Latinos del Gobernador, Teresa Donate. “No es momento, y nunca lo ha sido, de discriminar a aquellos que se perciben como culpables de la crisis actual, especialmente los asiáticos estadounidenses. No hay lugar para el odio en este Estado”.“Llamar a la COVID-19 el ‘virus chino’ crea confusión y es una afrenta para los estadounidenses de origen chino y para los chinos en todo el mundo”, dijo el Comisionado Blane F. Stoddart de la Comisión Asesora del Gobernador para Asuntos Afroamericanos. “El virus es móvil y no respeta fronteras. Deberíamos asumir un papel de liderazgo mundial con respecto a esta pandemia y trabajar con Europa, Rusia, Asia y Cuba para encontrar una solución a esta pandemia”.“Ayer ya pasó, mañana todavía no ha llegado, y solo tenemos el día de hoy”, dijo la vicepresidenta de la Comisión de Mujeres de Pennsylvania, Jazelle Jones. “Comencemos por amar a nuestros vecinos. Somos los guardianes de nuestros hermanos, así que hagamos la paz, no la guerra. Estamos juntos en esto”.“Durante esta pandemia mundial, los ataques físicos y verbales contra los asiáticos no deben ser tolerados”, dijo la Comisionada Sara Manzano-Diaz de la Comisión de Mujeres de Pennsylvania. “Recuerden, el odio también es un virus contagioso. ¡Detengan la propagación!”Se alienta a los residentes de Pennsylvania a denunciar los incidentes de discriminación o acoso visitando el sitio de Internet de la Comisión de Relaciones Humanas de Pennsylvania o mediante el envío de un correo electrónico a la comisión a [email protected] Los incidentes también pueden denunciarse a la Policía del Estado de Pennsylvania llamando a la tropa local.Ver esta página en inglés.last_img read more

Shenton, 18, was named the Potters’ academy player of the year last season, a campaign in which he got the two first-team run-outs he has to his name so far.
