Grüße aus der osteuropäischen Kulturblase - in dieser Folge sprechen wir über: Das Selbstbild und Fremdbild von uns selbst und Anderen. ______________________________________ Shownotes: Achtung, diese Folge enthält die nicht die komplette Ost.blog Crew. Viel Ironie und etwas Rage erwarten euch. Tja was hat das Thema mit Würsten zu tun? Vielleicht wurde die Methaper in eine Form pressen leicht gedehnt. ;) Wir fangen mal wieder mit einem Anderen Thema an und kommen hin wo wir hin wollten - zum Selbstbild und Fremdbild. Das Gespür (oder nicht Gespür) für diese zwei Bereiche wird einem sehr früh bewusst oder unterbewusst klar. Viele kennen die Situation, als Junger Mensch: Fremde sind komisch zu uns und wir verstehen nicht warum - ein resting Bitch Face sieht man nun mal schlecht an sich selbst. Wir schmücken das Thema mit diversen Beispielen und Geschichten aus um mal wieder ein etwas schwereres Thema so einfach wie möglich rüber zu bringen.

The Border Crossed Us is led by Jon Ayon, an AMR team member who conducted field research to gather the stories of peoples and Tribes at the southern settler colonial border between the United States and Mexico. This political border was drawn with no respect for the Indigenous peoples that live there — with land claims that predate both colonial governments. Now families and cultures are separated on either side. There are current cultural and religious permits in place for Native peoples to cross the border, but crossing remains a complicated and formidable challenge as border control determines which reasons are legitimate- often with no knowledge of traditions. Only in recent history has Indigenous migration been restricted and disqualified as a human right. An Indigenous future means free movement because heritage transcends borders. This is about the protection of the sacred: sacred land, sacred relations, sacred sovereignty and sacred traditions that require a sense of place and home. Our relationality does not end at a structural, colonial boundary. We would like to include a trigger warning for violence and sexual assault which appears in some of the stories.

Senta hatte eine Baustelle vor dem Haus und hat sich deshalb durchgehend auf stumm geschalten. Hätte aber die Fragen auch so gestellt. Das Thema Migration ist von hoher politischer Relevanz. Auch die Geschichtswissenschaft kann und muss etwas beitragen. Darüber sprechen wir heute mit Barbara Lüthi, Juniorprofessorin für Nordamerikanische Geschichte an der Uni Köln. Seit ihrer Lizentiatsarbeit beschäftigt sie sich mit dem Thema Migration. Sie berichtet wie sie bei ihrer Forschung vorgeht. Was können staatliche Quellen leisten? Welche anderen Quellen sollten herangezogen werden? Außerdem sprechen wir mit ihr über ihr Buch, das bald erscheinen wird: Contentious Mobilities: The Freedom Riders Across Borders, 1961 – 2011. Hierin vergleicht sie die Freedom Riders aus den 1960er Jahren in den USA mit anderen Desegregationbewegungen in Australien und Israel/Palästina. Sie versucht der Frage nachzugehen was Mobilität und Immobilität für Auswirkungen auf Individuen und Gruppen hat. Außerdem sprechen wir mit ihr über Traumatisierung und welche Themenfelder in der Migrationsforschung noch wichtig sind.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Donnerstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Human Rights Watch kritisiert Umgang mit Autokratien Human Rights Watch hat demokratische Länder für die Zusammenarbeit mit autoritären Herrschern kritisiert. Oft unterstützten sie autokratische Systeme, um Migration zu unterbinden, den Terrorismus zu bekämpfen oder für vermeintliche Stabilität zu sorgen, anstatt demokratische Prinzipien zu verteidigen, erklärte die Menschenrechtsorganisation anlässlich der Vorstellung ihres Jahresberichts in Genf. So lieferten etwa die USA weiter Waffen an Ägypten und Saudi-Arabien, obwohl US-Präsident Joe Biden eine menschenrechtsbasierte Außenpolitik versprochen habe. Iran und Venezuela ohne UN-Stimmrecht Der Iran, Venezuela und eine Reihe weiterer Staaten haben ihre Stimmrechte in der UN-Generalversammlung wegen Zahlungsrückständen vorübergehend verloren. Generalsekretär António Guterres teilte mit, der Iran müsse umgerechnet mindestens 16,1 Millionen Euro und Venezuela 34,8 Millionen Euro zahlen, um in dem größten UN-Organ wieder mitbestimmen zu können. Auch der Sudan und die Republik Kongo verloren ihr Stimmrecht. Nach UN-Regularien wird jenen Staaten das Recht darauf entzogen, deren Schulden der Höhe ihrer Mitgliedsbeiträge der vergangenen zwei Jahre entsprechen oder höher sind. Französisch-iranische Wissenschaftlerin wieder in Haft Die im Iran verurteilte Anthropologin Fariba Adelkhah ist wieder in das berüchtigte Evin-Gefängnis bei Teheran gebracht worden. Die französische Regierung reagierte empört und forderte die sofortige Freilassung der 62-jährigen Franko-Iranerin. Ihre erneute Inhaftierung sei "rein politisch und willkürlich" und werde sich negativ auf die Beziehungen zwischen Paris und Teheran auswirken, so ein Sprecher des Außenministeriums. Adelkhah war 2019 festgenommen und im Jahr darauf zu fünf Jahren Haft wegen Propaganda gegen das System verurteilt worden. Seit Oktober 2020 stand sie unter Hausarrest. Urteil im Al-Khatib-Prozess erwartet Vor dem Oberlandesgericht im rheinland-pfälzischen Koblenz wird an diesem Donnerstag das Urteil im weltweit ersten Prozess um Staatsfolter in Syrien erwartet. Dem Angeklagten werden unter anderem Mord in 30 Fällen und Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit vorgeworfen. Unter seiner Führung sollen vor zehn Jahren im berüchtigten Al-Khatib-Gefängnis in Damaskus mindestens 4000 Häftlinge mit Schlägen, Tritten und Elektroschocks gefoltert worden sein. Die Bundesanwaltschaft fordert lebenslange Haft und die Feststellung der besonderen Schwere der Schuld. Die Verteidigung plädiert auf Freispruch. Nigeria hebt Twitter-Sperre auf Nach rund sieben Monaten hat der nigerianische Präsident Mohammadu Buhari den Kurzmitteilungsdienst Twitter wieder zugelassen. Laut Medienberichten hatte das Unternehmen zuvor Bedingungen erfüllt. Unter anderem gehe es dabei um die Besteuerung nach nigerianischem Recht und den Umgang mit verbotenen Veröffentlichungen. Twitter war in Nigeria im Juni "bis auf weiteres" abgeschaltet worden. Die EU, die USA und andere kritisierten das Vorgehen damals scharf. Twitter ist im bevölkerungsreichsten Staat Afrikas beliebt: Fast 40 Millionen der insgesamt 200 Millionen Einwohner haben ein Twitter-Konto. Aus für "goldene Pässe" in Bulgarien Die neue bulgarische Regierung hat das Ende der Vergabe sogenannter goldener Pässe angekündigt. Das Kabinett von Ministerpräsident Kiril Petkow begründete den Schritt damit, dass das 2013 eingeführte Programm nicht wie beabsichtigt zu bedeutenden Investitionen in die bulgarische Wirtschaft geführt habe. Die EU-Kommission hatte die Praxis der Vergabe von Staatsbürgerschaften gegen finanzielle Zusagen lange kritisiert und ihr Ende gefordert. 2020 leitete sie deshalb ein Vertragsverletzungsverfahren gegen Zypern und Malta ein. Im Juni drohte die Brüsseler Behörde auch Bulgarien mit einem Verfahren. Cyberattacke auf US-Haftanstalt Ein Hackerangriff hat ein Gefängnis im US-Bundesstaat New Mexico lahmgelegt. Laut Gerichtsdokumenten wurden vergangene Woche die Sicherheitskameras sowie das automatische Türsystem der Haftanstalt im Bezirk Bernalillo außer Betrieb gesetzt. Auch andere öffentliche Einrichtungen in der Region nahe der Großstadt Albuquerque waren von dem Angriff betroffen. Unbekannte Erpresser hatten offenbar die Festplatten der Computer mit einer sogenannten Ransomware verschlüsselt. Ob sie auch Lösegeld gefordert haben, wurde nicht bekannt.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Mittwoch – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Hohe Infektionszahl in Deutschland Die Zahl der Corona-Neuinfektionen in Deutschland hat einen neuen Tageshöchstwert erreicht. Nach Angaben des Robert Koch-Instituts haben sich in den vergangenen 24 Stunden 80.430 Menschen angesteckt. Die Sieben-Tage-Inzidenz überstieg die Marke von 400. Sie liegt aktuell bei 407,5. Zuletzt warnte die Weltgesundheitsorganisation, dass schon Mitte März sich mehr als die Hälfte der Europäer mit Omikron infiziert haben könnte. Frankreich verzeichnet Corona-Rekordwert Auch Frankreich hat mit mehr als 368.000 registrierten Corona-Neuinfektionen binnen eines Tages einen Rekordwert verzeichnet. Die Fallzahlen sind über die vergangenen Wochen in die Höhe geschnellt. Die Omikron-Variante des Coronavirus ist mittlerweile vorherrschend im Land. Der Inzidenzwert lag landesweit zuletzt bei 2790. Er gibt an, wie viele Infektionen innerhalb einer Woche auf 100.000 Menschen erfasst wurden. Um die fünfte Welle einzudämmen, will Frankreichs Regierung die Corona-Regeln für Ungeimpfte nochmals verschärfen. Russland und China gegen Mali-Sanktionen Im UN-Sicherheitsrat haben Russland und China die Annahme eines Textes blockiert, der Sanktionen westafrikanischer Staaten gegen die Militärjunta in Mali befürwortet. Die Vertreter der Regierungen in Peking und Moskau verhinderten nach Angaben von Diplomaten die von Frankreich eingebrachte Initiative. Die Militärjunta hatte für Februar geplante Wahlen in Mali abgesagt und eine bis zu fünf Jahre lange Übergangsphase hin zu einer zivilen Regierung angekündigt. Die Nachbarstaaten der Westafrikanischen Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft (ECOWAS) verhängten Sanktionen, darunter Grenzschließungen und ein Handelsembargo. Biden will Wahlrechtsreform durch den Senat bringen Im Streit um weitgehende Wahlrechtsreformen in den USA macht Präsident Joe Biden Druck. Er forderte, notfalls eine zentrale Regel des Senats zu ändern. Dort brauchen Gesetzesvorhaben eine "Super-Mehrheit" von 60 der 100 Senatoren, um überhaupt zur Abstimmung zu kommen. Das bedeutet, dass die Opposition Vorhaben mit einer Sperrminorität von 41 Stimmen blockieren kann. Die Republikaner von Bidens Vorgänger Donald Trump nutzen ihre Sperrminorität derzeit, um im Oberhaus in Washington zwei von den Demokraten vorangetriebene Wahlrechtsreformen zu blockieren. Zahl der Asylanträge so hoch wie lange nicht Im vergangenen Jahr sind in Deutschland so viele Asylanträge gestellt worden wie seit 2017 nicht mehr. Wie aus Zahlen des Bundesamts für Migration und Flüchtlinge (BAMF) hervorgeht, nahm die Behörde 2021 rund 190.800 Asylanträge entgegen. Das wichtigste Herkunftsland der Asylbewerber war im vergangenen Jahr erneut Syrien. Mehr als 70.000 Anträge betrafen laut BAMF-Statistik Menschen aus dem arabischen Land. Zugenommen hat die Zahl der Schutzsuchenden aus Afghanistan. Mehr als 31.000 Afghanen stellten vergangenes Jahr Asylanträge in Deutschland.

Er veröffentlichte auf Instagram eine Erklärung, in der er einräumte, dass sein Einreiseformular falsch ausgefüllt worden sei. Er gab jedoch seinen Mitarbeitern die Schuld dafür.

Bonobo - "Rosewood" from the 2022 album Fragments on Ninja Tune. Since the late ‘90s, Simon Green has been sharing his sweeping electronic grooves as Bonobo to much acclaim. 2022 will see him unveil his hotly anticipated seventh full-length Fragments. Created during the pandemic, the songs were made out of fragmented pieces of ideas the British-born, LA-based producer put together while on lockdown with the help of some notable names like Jamila Woods, Joji, Kadhja Bonet, and Jordan Rakei. Our Song of the Day is the record's lead single, “Rosewood.” Customarily warm and woozy, the song has a locked groove with the repeating phrase, “I won't leave you,” providing emotional resonance until the song's cathartic dance floor build-up. It's a lesson in restraint, letting the subtle flourishes of the song shine while never fully releasing or doing too much. Fragments is out this Friday, January 14 via Ninja Tune. It follows up Bonobo's 2020 collaborative EP with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Heartbreak / 6000 Ft. and his Grammy-nominated 2017 full-length Migration.

On the show, Chris Hedges discusses the building of climate fortresses with the author and journalist, Todd Miller. Industrialized nations, among them the world's largest polluters, are compounding one human-made crisis with another one. Rather than investing in technologies to end our dependence on fossil fuels, they are spending billions to construct climate fortresses ringed by border walls. There are already more than 63 border walls, manned by tens of thousands of guards. These nations, including the United States, are investing in technologies and equipment including robots, drones, surveillance cameras, iris recognition software, weapons, acoustic detection devices, and ready-to-eat meals to blockade and criminalize those fleeing war and the worsening climate emergency that is triggering famines, droughts, wildfires and declining crop yields. More than 44,000 people (a vast undercount, according to researchers of the International Organization on Migration) have died crossing borders between 2014 and 2020, in both the world's deserts and seas. And tens of thousands of others are incarcerated in a global network of more than 2,000 detention centers, while companies in the border industry anticipate more profitable contracts with the intensifying climate crisis. For four decades, with virtually no public debate, a handful of large corporations such as Northrop Grumman, Elbit Systems, General Atomics, and Deloitte have driven up immigration enforcement budgets in the United States behind closed doors and beyond public scrutiny.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Dienstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.RKI weist keine Virusvariantengebiete mehr aus Angesichts der Ausbreitung der Coronavirus-Variante Omikron auch in Deutschland lockert die Bundesregierung ihre Einreisebeschränkungen. Großbritannien, Südafrika, Namibia, Botswana, Mosambik, Simbabwe, Malawi, Eswatini und Lesotho gelten von diesem Dienstag an nicht mehr als Virusvariantengebiete, wie das Robert Koch-Institut mitteilte. Stattdessen werden die neun Staaten nun als Hochrisikogebiete geführt. Für Menschen aus diesen Ländern mit einer vollständigen Corona-Impfung wird die Einreise nach Deutschland damit deutlich erleichtert. Gegner von Corona-Maßnahmen machen mobil In Deutschland haben mehrere zehntausend Menschen gegen die staatlichen Corona-Maßnahmen protestiert. Sie trafen sich in etlichen Städten zu nicht genehmigten "Montagsspaziergängen". Größere Demonstrationen wurden etwa aus Rostock in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern und Nürnberg in Bayern gemeldet. Die meisten Protestaktionen verliefen friedlich. In Lichtenstein bei Zwickau in Sachsen wurden Einsatzkräfte attackiert, 14 von ihnen erlitten dabei nach Polizei-Angaben Verletzungen. Mancherorts kam es zu Gegendemonstrationen. Apple-Konzern schreibt Wall-Street-Geschichte Der iPhone-Hersteller Apple hat als weltweit erstes Unternehmen einen Börsenwert von drei Billionen Dollar erreicht. Das entspricht fast der gesamten Wirtschaftsleistung Deutschlands. Apple gehört wie zahlreiche andere Technologiefirmen zu den Profiteuren der Coronavirus-Pandemie. An der New Yorker Wall Street rangiert der Konzern vor dem Softwareriesen Microsoft mit einem Wert von rund 2,5 Billionen Dollar sowie Amazon und der Google-Mutter Alphabet, die jeweils mehr als eine Billion Dollar wert sind. Etliche Todesopfer bei Kämpfen in Kolumbien Bei Gefechten in Kolumbien zwischen der marxistischen Untergrundmiliz ELN und abtrünnigen Mitgliedern der aufgelösten Rebellenorganisation FARC sind mindestens 23 Menschen getötet worden. Die Kämpfe ereigneten sich im Grenzgebiet zu Venezuela in der nordöstlichen Region Arauca. Das teilte Vize-Verteidigungsminister Jairo García mit. Unter den Toten seien auch vier Venezolaner, sagte Verteidigungsminister Diego Molano. Unklar ist, ob auch Zivilisten getötet wurden. Anders als die FARC hat die ELN mit etwa 2500 Mitgliedern dem bewaffneten Kampf gegen die Regierung nicht abgeschworen. Hilfswerk beklagt mehr als 4400 tote Migranten auf Spanien-Routen Mehr als 4400 Migranten sind nach Angaben einer angesehenen spanischen Hilfsorganisation im Vorjahr bei dem Versuch gestorben, Spanien auf dem Seeweg zu erreichen. Die Zahl habe sich im Vergleich zu 2020 verdoppelt - damals seien 2170 Migranten ums Leben gekommen, teilte das in Afrika sehr gut vernetzte Hilfswerk Caminando Fronteras mit. So viele Todesopfer wie 2021 seien noch nie registriert worden. Allein auf dem Weg von Westafrika zu den Kanaren habe es 4016 Todesopfer gegeben. Die Zahl der spanischen Organisation ist dreieinhalb Mal so hoch wie jene der UN-Organisation für Migration. Schuldspruch gegen Theranos-Gründerin Holmes Die einstige US-Vorzeigeunternehmerin Elizabeth Holmes ist von einer Jury im kalifornischen San Jose des Betrugs schuldig gesprochen worden. Die heute 37-Jährige habe Investoren mit vorsätzlichen Falschbehauptungen über die Technologie ihrer Bluttest-Firma Theranos dazu verleitet, Gelder in das Unternehmen zu stecken, urteilten die Geschworenen. Holmes war durch die Gründung von Theranos zur Milliardärin geworden. Recherchen hatten ans Licht gebracht, dass die vermeintlich revolutionäre Technologie des Unternehmens gar nicht funktionierte. Das Strafmaß gegen Holmes wird später verkündet. Peter Wright ist neuer Darts-Weltmeister Der Schotte Peter Wright hat zum zweiten Mal die Darts-WM gewonnen.

Seeley's study illustrates how Native Americans and African Americans had to navigate a myriad of challenges to their place both within and outside of the nation.

Audio Sources Kawsachun News - Nicaragua 2021 Election Observer Press Conference November 10, 2021 Moderator: I present Paul Pumphrey from Friends of the Congo. Paul Pumphrey: Here in Nicaragua, I saw a free and fair election. I talked to many people who were not a part of the Sandinistas party. And yet they themselves said they were willing to accept whatever result happened in the election. Moderator: Next we have Craig Pasta Jardula who is a journalist based in the United States. Craig Pasta Jardula: Mainly, I want to talk about the process, meaning the chain of custody, because that's something that we really saw that was great here in Nicaragua, it made this election a home run. The chain of custody is very strong here, including the fact that in Nicaragua, we have something that is awesome that a lot of countries need to adopt, which is where the vote is cast, it is counted, that ensures a strong chain of custody. Moderator: Next is Rick Cohn from Friends of Latin America. 13:05 Rick Cohn: I want to speak just a little bit though a group of 11 of us went to Bilwi on the Caribbean coast. And in the United States, one of the things they'll use to say this election is fake, is that a high percentage of people voted, and a high percentage of people voted for the FSLN. And that can't happen, because American politicians that would never happen. Well, so I want to say something about why the voters told us they were voting. They told us that basically, they had two Category Four and Category Five hurricanes last year, and the government came and saved their lives, saved many, many lives. And, you know, people have trust in that government. And then the government came in and made sure the electric was up. In Puerto Rico from a year earlier, electric still isn't isn't working, because they, you know, are making money selling electric, but it still doesn't work. They told us they had new roofs put on almost immediately they were delivered. They told us that the schools were rebuilt. All of the schools were in good condition. Oh, the schools and some of them have new buildings. So we had a situation where they were very happy with the performance of the government. And that is why -- oh, they also told us they had one kilometer of road before the FSLN came into power from the neoliberal period, now they have 500 kilometers. And with 70 more kilometers, they'll be able to drive from all the way to Managua, which they've never been able to do in history. So they told us these things. And the FSLN party received the highest percentage of votes, but that's not strange, because they really support the government. They received 86.7% of the vote. You know, there's no way that's made up - it's not fake. It's where they're at. It is certainly the biggest deficiency in democracy in Nicaragua is the interference that there is so much interference from the US government and the media, and the censorship and the lies that they tell. That's the interference that's occurring in this election. 33:52 Rick Cohn: Corporate media like Facebook, well, all of the corporate media including Facebook and Twitter, but social media, are actually just part of the US system and they're contracted to provide information back and forth, they're actually an aspect of the government and they close 1000s of people's accounts, who are people, and I met some of them, they're actual people, and they close their accounts. And they weren't, you know, anyone who was saying anything other than the fact that they may have been supporting the Nicaraguan people or opposed to the the sanctions on Nicaragua. AN INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE TO ORTEGA'S DESTRUCTION OF DEMOCRACY IN NICARAGUA September 21, 2021 House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, Migration and International Economic Policy *Hearing not on C-SPAN Witnesses: Emily Mendrala Deputy Assistant Secretary of State at the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs Laure Chinchilla Former President of Costa Rica Co-Chair at The Inter-American Dialogue Ryan Berg, PhD Senior Fellow in the Americas Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Oct. 2018 - Apr. 2021: Research Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute Apr. 2018 - Oct. 2018: Research Consultant at The World Bank July 2014 - Oct 2014: US State Department negotiator at the Organization of American States (OAS) 2009: Intern for Paul Ryan Berta Valle Wife of Felix Maradiaga Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): The regime has rounded up nearly every potential challenger to Ortega and has not even tried to hide these arrests and forced disappearances under the veneer of legality. 05:42 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): Having written the NICA Act with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), I am frustrated that the International Monetary Fund recently provided $350 million to the regime. The IMF should not take Ortega's us word for it that these funds will be used to address the COVID pandemic. 06:53 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): We should also begin preparing a number of severe diplomatic consequences, assuming Nicaragua's election in November becomes a coronation for Ortega. Nicaragua should be suspended under the International Democratic Charter on November 8, and its participation under the Central America Free Trade Agreement should be reconsidered. 10:39 Rep. Mark Green (R-TN): On November 7 a political farce will be held, claiming to resemble elections. No one should be fooled about the outcome -- any hope of unseating the socialist dictatorship is sitting inside of Ortega's prisons. 13:56 *Emily Mendrala: As you are well aware, the Ortega-Murillo government has carried out a ruthless crackdown over the past several months, canceling the registration of opposition parties, incarcerating journalists, opposition leaders, potential presidential candidates, students, private sector leaders and others who defend free and fair elections, attacking the free press, closing long standing NGOs that provide humanitarian and medical assistance to Nicaraguans in need. 15:06 Emily Mendrala: In the face of sham elections in Nicaragua, we and our international partners must continue to denounce and push back against the Ortega-Murillo government's anti-democratic rule as well as its use of Russian-inspired laws to carry out repression. 17:56 Emily Mendrala: Through USAID we continue to support Nicaraguan civil society, independent media and human rights defenders. Our continued support assures Nicaraguans that the outside world has not forgotten them. 19:06 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): Are we using our voice? Is the administration using its voice and vote with international financial institution to oppose loans and other financial assistance to Ortega? Because I have to tell you, it's very upsetting to me that we do all this work here. We asked the administration to put sanctions on different people. And yet the IMF, which we probably contribute the largest amount of money, or if not, one of the largest amounts of money, they seem to just ignore what's going on in Nicaragua. And it has to -- I intend to write a letter to the IMF. And hopefully we'll have them before this committee, because this is not acceptable. 20:22 Emily Mendrala: We are using our voice and our vote and every opportunity in front of multilateral institutions to oppose lending to the Ortega-Murillo government. We will continue to use our voice, vote and influence to advocate against lending from international financial institutions to the Ortega-Murillo government and we will also continue to collaborate with international partners where appropriate: EU, Canada and others to do the same. 30:43 Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX): The upcoming November 7 elections will be neither free nor fair 1:04:30 Berta Valle: Even though Félix [Maradiaga] has dedicated his life to serving our country, the regime has charged him and others with a conspiracy to undermine national integrity. The government is alleging that Félix and others were part of a global conspiracy to use foreign resources, including from the US Agency for International Development, the International Republican Institute and the National Endowment for Democracy to harm the interests of the nation. 1:16:33 Ryan Berg: As well as November 7, I think we need to declare Nicaragua's elections illegitimate under current conditions. 1:27:16 Ryan Berg: Thank you, Congressman Green, for the question. Yes, the two countries that I would point out as extra-hemispheric actors who have have come into the hemisphere to shore up the Ortega regime are Russia and Iran. Russia, we've seen with a significant presence in Nicaragua for a while. Its increased its presence in past years, to an extent that I think should be very alarming for the US government. Not only does it have a number of port agreements with Nicaragua, and access to the Caribbean, where it can engage in anti access and area denial capabilities, potentially. But also in cyberspace. We saw recently the Russians and Nicaraguans sign a major agreement in the cyberspace, particularly to help the regime not only increase its domestic security apparatus, but to spy potentially on the opposition on our own citizens, and indeed, potentially on on other governments in Central America, depending upon the strength of the equipment transfers that we'll see in future. So they have a whole number or whole range of capabilities that they are developing within Nicaragua, that there are signals intelligence stations that are actually quite close to the US Embassy in Managua. And so that's that's Russia, Russia has an interest in shoring up this regime on the cheap. And I think Iran has approached the regime in a number of ways, most specifically, in offering partnerships to circumvent US sanctions architecture, in which it excels, because of the sanctions architecture that it has been under for so long. And we haven't seen as deep I would say, as a presence of the Iranians in Nicaragua, but it's it's there and it's also concerning. I think, in general, Congressman, part of the Ortega regime's plan for survival is to sort of recreate a situation of rivalry and enmity in Central America again, and lend a platform for major geopolitical competitors to the United States to increase their capabilities on the US doorstep and I think that's a significant aspect of this political, economic and social crisis here. 1:35:50 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): If the Ortega regime moves ahead was stealing this November's elections the international community must come together to impose a very steep price. John Bolton: Miami Dade College's National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower November 1, 2018 John Bolton: The "Troika of Tyranny" in this hemisphere -- Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua -- has finally met its match. John Bolton: Today in this hemisphere we are also confronted once again, with the destructive forces of oppression, socialism and totalitarianism. In Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, we see the perils of poisonous ideologies left unchecked. Nicaraguan President Speech at the United Nations General Assembly September 25, 2007 16:50 President Daniel Ortega: The General Assembly is simply a reflection of this world where a capitalist and imperialist minority is imposing global capitalism to impoverish the world continue to enslave us all and promote apartheid against Latin American immigrants and against African immigrants in Europe. This global capitalism is one beast and it has tentacles everywhere. 25:30 President Daniel Ortega: They have to understand once and for all, that just as they have managed to profit from privatizations that have given rise to these huge multi-nationals that then set up in developing countries, they say that they are helping us. No business person provides assistance, they simply go to earn as much money as they can, they don't go to invest. Developing countries are considered to be insecure countries, and we are simply being ransacked. If we compare the volume of riches that they're extracting from our countries -- the capitalists in developed countries I'm talking about -- through their major companies, the globalized multinationals. If we can compare that wealth with what the Latin American immigrants send back to their families from the U.S. or the Asian and African families in Europe send back to their families, it is a miserable amount compared to the volume of wealth that is extracted on a daily basis by these forms of institutionalized oppression. 28:30 President Daniel Ortega: These companies are simply using cheap labor. They are benefiting from clauses in free trade agreements. I've got us free trade, why not? Free trade for societies and nations. But clearly in that system, it's the law of the jungle the strongest will impose themselves on the rest. What well the world needs is fair trade. What the world demands is really a genuine change in the capitalist, globalized, imperialist economies, that is where we need to have a change. They have to change this concept that they have of a free market. They have to change the slant of these free trade agreements. Nicaraguan Presidential Address to Congress April 16, 1991 20:00 President Violetta Chamorro: My government is committed to radically reducing government intervention in the economy and the enormous bureaucratic apparatus that we have inherited. Our Congress approved a law that authorizes private banks to operate and encourages foreign investments and is studying the privatization law in order to convert government to businesses. We are rapidly advancing towards the establishment of a social market economy. Restrictions on prices and salaries must be lifted. Likewise, we have initiated a serious economic stabilization program accompanied by the corresponding tax reforms in order to discipline and improve and decrease public spending to encourage domestic production and to stimulate private domestic and foreign investment.
