SANTOS HE'S OPTIMISTIC AND A LIAR'' http://prensarural.org/spip/spip.php?article11522
It was in part about being a country fair where their lies have soared. The most cynical were the following: "I am optimistic because we begin to repay thousands of peasant victims in Colombia". There
are more than 5 million victims, many of whom have been denouncing that
assistance to victims have been coopted by a unit of politicians and eternal formalities. This year they have killed more than 70 leaders of restitution of lands, among them José Segundo Turizo, on July 15.
"I'm optimistic," said Santos,
because it broke the trend of economic inequality and "we are no longer
the second most unequal country in the region". But
a recent study by the international NGO Save the Children confirmed
that we are the third most unequal country in the world for children. And in areas such as Catatumbo, 60% of its inhabitants has unsatisfied basic needs, according to Governor Edgar Díaz.
"I'm optimistic," echoed Santos, because nearly 9 million children and young people are studying free. However, the President forgets that, according to the World Bank, in recent years fell the weight of education in the GDP. In the South of Bolivar, in 11 municipalities around 18 thousand children lasted almost a semester without school; in
Córdoba, 12 municipalities with 17 thousand children without education,
and similar situation arose recently in Caquetá, when teachers and
parents came out to demand the right to education for more than 9,500
In terms of higher education,
Santos also said his optimism, announcing the creation of 300 thousand
new places, I guess that you delivering the Icetex credits to the poor. However, the contributions of the nation have decreased in the last 10 years, from 0.51% to 0.39% GDP. You will forget the President that we are among the five countries with less coverage in higher education of Latin America? Remember that only 37% of young people are in institutions of higher education? Do not there will be given account that National University, our Alma Máter, is - literally - falling to pieces?
The cynicism of Santos continued
to refer to its achievements in the field of health: universal coverage,
expansion of the plan's benefits and control the prices of medicines. Their euphoria allowed him to forget "death rides", the corruption that round to the health system and the EPS. According
to the Comptroller's Office, half of the health resources have been
appropriate inappropriately and over 4.5 billion pesos have been focused
on recovery. We have the prices of
higher drugs in the world, and promises to go out of the health crisis,
untouched of course the sacred dogmas of the free market, religion they
profess the members of his Cabinet.
But his most bravura expressed it
when he says to lead a Government that "dialogues", while continuing its
constant stigmatization to protest democratic and social, that today
extends explicitly to Senator Jorge Enrique Robledo, opponent of the
Government. The President forget
prosecuted about 100 citizens and citizens recently for his involvement
in the protests in Antioquia, Valle del Cauca, Caldas, Chocó, Risaralda
and Santander. And it passes unnoticed
deaths of four peasants, more than 50 wounded in the area of Aguas
Claras (Ocaña) at the hands of the ESMAD and the four committees which,
in the midst of improvisation and indifference, have traveled to Tibu to
listen to the proposals that the peasant movement has been working
since 2009 for legal recognition as a peasant reserve area.
Not so, Mr President. You try to make peace in Havana while restrained,still punishes and seeks to silence the social protest in Colombia. That is not typical of a ruler who called himself Democrat. I accept you to be optimistic, but not liar.
