La alimentación está en manos de un puñado de empresas


Trinitat Gilabert | diari ARA

Esther Vivas, activista alimentaria, acaba de publicar el libro El negocio de la comida. ¿Quién controla Nuestra alimentación?, de Icaria editorial, que a mediados de noviembre estará disponible en las librerías.

¿Quién controla nuestra alimentación?
Un puñado de empresas, que son las que monopolizan todos los tramos de la cadena agroalimentaria y que anteponen sus intereses particulares, hacer dinero, a nuestras necesidades alimentarias.

En el libro, mencionas nombres concretos de las empresas que lo hacen. ¿Cuáles son?
Sí, son desde grandes multinacionales que controlan las semillas, como Monsanto -la número uno en semillas transgénicas- y Syngenta, y también monopolizan la comercialización de agrotóxicos, hasta otras empresas como Nestlé y Danone, y grandes cadenas de supermercados, que determinan también qué consumimos, como Carrefour y Mercadona.

9º Terraço Aberto 2014: Qualidade e Humanização da Saúde


9º Terraço Aberto 2014

Sexta-feira, 31 de Outubro de 2014
às 14h00

no terraço da HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation em Pemba

O nosso fórum de debate reflectivo, crítico e aberto
a volta do tema mãe “Cabo Delgado 2040”


Tema do mês:

Qualidade e Humanização da Saúde

“O nosso maior valor é a vida.”

Uma sociedade dificilmente pode melhorar o seu nível de vida em todos os sentidos, se a população não goza de uma boa saúde. Assim, Serviços de Saúde de qualidade para todos e acessíveis são essenciais para o desenvolvimento considerável do país.

Muito investimento está a ser feito para aumentar o número ainda deficiente de profissionais de saúde no país, para a construção de novas infraestruturas e para aquisições como medicamentos e equipamento hospitalar.

Através da “Carta de Deveres e Direitos dos Utentes”, o Ministério da Saúde encoraja a participar activamente no melhoramento dos Serviços de Saúde, mas continua a notar-se uma falta de sentido crítico por parte da sociedade.

  • Quais são os aspectos principais a melhorar na prestação de serviços na saúde, e como?
  • O que é um atendimento ético? Quais são os valores vividos e qual é o valor dado a vida?
  • Como é que a formação dos profissionais de saúde tem em conta os aspectos “qualidade” e “humanização”, e que papel joga a vocação dos técnicos?
  • Qual é o papel da sociedade e como pode participar para alcançar Serviços de Saúde de qualidade?

Frelimo landslide victory Dhlakama does well MDM collapse Higher turnout


Preliminary numbers and projections indicate the Frelimo will win a landslide victory, and that the turnout will be over 50%, compared to 45% in 2009. Afonso Dhlakama has done well, but MDM has collapsed and will not fulfil its expectations after having done well in local elections last year. Indeed, Daviz Simango may win fewer votes than MDM won in the municipal elections. 

The key provinces of Zambézia and Nampula have a small overall opposition majority, with votes projected as approximately 45% Frelimo, 45% Renamo, and 10% MDM.

Initial projections for President are:

Filipe Nyusi 60% 
Afonso Dhlakama 32% 
Daviz Simango 8% 

and for parliament

Frelimo 57%  (142 seats)
Renamo 30% (75 seats)
MDM 12% (31 seats)
Others 1%

2014 National Elections Mozambique political process bulletin




Polls closed

Our correspondents report that at the end of voting at 18.00 there were still some polling stations with a few people still to vote, and some only closed at 18.30 or 18.45. A handful of polling stations, including in Moma and Malema, Nampula; Chimoio, Manica; and Mecula, Niassa, had long queues and had to remain open until after 20.00.

Electoral observatory predicts low turnout

The Electoral Observatory said that its observers in 778 polling stations reported that 34% of voters had voted by 14.30. Most people will have voted by that hour. This suggests a turnout similar or below to the 45% in 2009 and 43% in 2004.

STAE says Renamo has taken hostages in Tsangano

Renamo is holding five people hostage, two polling station staff and three police, in Tsangano after the attacks on polling stations this morning, according to the head of Tete STAE (Secretariado Tecnico de Administracao Eleitoral), Lolo Correia, AIM reported this evening. The incident was reported in the mid-day bulletin 58, and there are photos in the attached pdf.

Attacks on polling stations in Angoche

An assault on polling stations in Inguri, Angoche, caused polling station staff to flee and halted the count in some places.

Shots to disperse voters

In Munhava, Beira, at Macombe primary school, the riot police fired tear gas and live ammunition to disperse voters who refused to leave the area after voting.

A similar situation occurred in Nampula city at 12th October secondary school, where voters demanded the right to stay and monitor the process.

Also in Nampula, at Belenes primary school, voters demonstrated when they were unable to vote because the polling stations had no register books. Riot police used tear gas and live ammunition to disperse the crowd.

MDM member shot in Dondo

An MDM member has been hospitalised in Dondo, Sofala, after he was shot by the police. He claimed he was trying to stop the introduction of an already stuffed ballot box.

Electricity cuts

Electricity cuts have been reported this evening in many parts of the country. This means some counts will be done in the dark, which increases the possibility of fraud and error. This, in turn, has exacerbated the sporadic violence by opposition supporters who do not trust the electoral process. Community radio (FORCOM) correspondents report cuts in Homoine, Inhambane; Pemba; Barue, Manica; Nampula; and Lichinga.

Arrest for offering money

Renamo member Xavier Cantaze was arrested for offering 500 meticais to people in a voters queue to vote for Renamo, at Tamuiri primary school, Chiuta, Tete.

Ballot box stuffing - 
  polling station president arrested


There are a growing number of reports of the discovery of ballot papers already marked for Frelimo and which involve polling station staff or other officials.

In Angonia, Tete, Jeremias Atanasio, the president of a polling station in Domue primary school, was arrested when he was found with ballot papers already marked for Frelimo.

In Chidenguele, Gaza, observers caught a new form of ballot box stuffing. They saw a member of an unknown observer group pick up ballot papers from the main table (with the obvious agreement of the polling station staff), and put them into a slot under the booth where voters mark their ballot paper. When an observer went there and took out the ballot papers, he found them marked for Frelimo (see photos in the attached pdf). The idea appears to be that when a Frelimo member who had been warned in advance went to that booth and marked and folded up their ballot papers, they would take extra ballot papers from the slot and fold in extra ones as well, thus putting more than one ballot paper in each box.

In Beira spare ballot boxes have been found.

Meanwhile, there have been several other reports of pre-marked ballot papers being found. In Dondo a reporter for the newspaper Zambezewas attacked and had his camera confiscated after he took pictures showing polling station staff marking ballot papers for Frelimo, and of a teacher putting the extra votes in the ballot boxes. He also filmed a discussion between polling station staff and party members, but has now had his pictures taken away. This was at Eduardo Mondlane primary school.

In Coalane in Quelimane an observer caught a person with 17 pre-marked ballot papers. 

And the Youth Parliament (Parlamento Juvenil, PJ), community radios (o Forum das Radios Comunitarias de Mocambique, FORCOM), the Human Rights League (a Liga Mocambicana dos Direitos Humanos, LDH), the Women's Forum (o Forum Mulher) and the Public Integrity Centre (o Centro de Integridade Publica, CIP) have issued a joint statement in which they say that that "in Quelimane city 4 clandestine ballot boxes were found in a police car registration PRM 00313. Local people say that the ballot boxes were given to two people who left in cars with registrations ACU 173 MC e ADJ 481 MC".

Can polling stations open very late?

We have reported many polling stations which did not open this morning. But CNE spokesman Paulo Cuinica says that all polling stations in Nampula, Nacala, Angoche and Beira opened eventually. But our correspondents report that many only opened in the afternoon, and this appears to be illegal.

According to the electoral law, in the event of any irregularity that stops voting, the polling station staff has only four hours to resolve the problem. If it is impossible to reopen within four hours, the president of the polling station must close it.

Polling stations are supposed to open at 7 am and that means if they cannot open, for example because they do not have a register book, then the problem must be solved by 11 am. Opening in the afternoon would seem to violate the electoral law. And this is sensible, because once people have given up and gone home, it is difficult to tell them in the late afternoon that the polling station is open.

Photos of Tsangano burned ballot papers.

The photos in the attached pdf are from Gumbacere primary school in Tsangano district, Tete. They show burned ballot papers and ballot boxes torn open by Renamo this morning. Details were published in the previous bulletin 58 this afternoon.

¿Nos acompañas al Parlamento a presentar el Informe de la Salud en la Cooperación y la acción humanitaria?


El próximo 24 de octubre, participaremos en la Comisión de Acción Exterior, Unión Europea y Cooperación del Parlamentde Catalunya, junto con los compañeros de Médicos del Mundo, para presentar a los parlamentarios y parlamentarias el informe “La salud en la cooperación y la acción humanitaria” que cada año publicamos las ONGD Médicos del Mundo,medicusmundi y Prosalus.

El informe repasa las principales retos de la salud en el ámbito mundial y en especial en relación al desarrollo de los países más desfavorecidos, y analiza cual ha sido el papel de la cooperación española y la cooperación descentralizada (comunidades y entes locales) en el sector salud y la ayuda humanitaria.

En cada edición se analiza en profundidad un tema concreto, siendo los temas elegidos los últimos años el cambio de modelo sanitario que se está produciendo en el Estado Español y los recortes en la política pública de cooperación. En esta comparecencia, Carlos Mediano, director de investigaciones de medicusmundi, presentará las conclusiones del informe 2014.

Si nos queréis acompañar el día 24, disponemos de invitaciones para asistir como oyentes.

Podéis consultar los informes anuales en la web www.medicusmundi.es/catalunya en el apartado de Publicaciones, donde en breve también estará disponible la edición de 2014, que se está ultimando estos días.

En 2011 esta publicación fue reconocida por el Diario Médico con el premio “Mejores ideas de la Sanidad 2011” en el apartado de Políticas Profesionales, por los 10 años de edición y difusión del informe.


Los mitos del sistema alimentario


Esther Vivas


Nos dicen que el sistema agrícola y alimentario es el mejor de los posibles. Un modelo altamente productivo que permite dar de comer a todo el mundo, muy eficiente, que ofrece una gran variedad de alimentos, que facilita el trabajo a los agricultores y lo mejor... que nunca antes habíamos comido de una manera tan segura. ¿En serio?

Sin embargo, cuando analizamos en detalle, y con números en la mano, cada una de estas afirmaciones vemos que son falsas. Quienes las dicen piensan que por repetirlas una y otra vez nos las vamos a tragar. La verdad es que el actual modelo de producción, distribución y consumo de alimentos se sustenta en una serie de mitos que son mentira.

Tancarem el CIE / Cerraremos el CIE


La Escuela de Pensamiento Crítico se ha sumado a la campaña ” Cerraremos el CIE de Barcelona” , impulsada por más de 100 entidades y colectivos de Cataluña. 
Creemos que los Centros de Internamiento de Extranjeros , como espacios donde se recluye personas por el solo hecho de no tener papeles y sin haber cometido ningún delito, vulneran derechos fundamentales y constituyen un abuso ilegítimo del principio de legalidad sobre las libertades democráticas .

ATTAC Palencia NO al TTIP Reunión 9-10-2014


El próximo jueves día 9 de octubre nos reuniremos en el Consejo de la Juventud a las 19 horas. 

Teniendo en cuenta que el día 11 de Octubre, coincidiendo con el 3º día mundial contra el fracking, se ha convocado un día de movilizaciones europeas contra el TTIP y otros 2 tratados de libre comercio: CETA (UE-Canadá) y TISA (sobre el Comercio de Servicios; muy importante), proponemos centrar esta reunión en valorar la posibilidad de realizar alguna acción en este sentido. 

Para ello invitamos a todas aquellas personas y organizaciones que sabemos pueden estar interesadas en el tema.
