U.S. ARMS SALES UNDERMINE HUMAN RIGHTS, GROUP SAYS

WASHINGTON — The U.S. arms trade is booming — sales reached $32 billion last year — and more than half of the purchasers in the developing world are either undemocratic governments or regimes that engaged in human rights abuses, a private think tank reported today.

Timed to the 60th anniversary of the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the report by the New America Foundation, a nonpartisan policy institute, named 13 of the top 25 arms purchasers in the developing world as either undemocratic or engaged in major human rights abuses.

The 13 listed in the report were Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Egypt, Colombia, Jordan, Bahrain, Oman, Morocco, Yemen and Tunisia.

Sales to these countries totaled more than $16.2 billion over 2006 and 2007.

The total “contrasts sharply with the Bush administration’s pro-democracy rhetoric,” the report said.

Also, the report said that 20 of the 27 nations engaged in major armed conflicts were receiving weapons and training from the United States.

“U.S. arms transfers are undermining human rights, weakening democracy and fueling conflict around the world,” the report said.

William D. Hartung, the lead author of the report, said, “The United States cannot demand respect for human rights and arm human rights abusers at the same time.”

U.S. arms sales grew to $32 billion in 2007, more than three times the level when President Bush took office in 2001, the report said.

The United States is the world’s largest arms supplier. U.S. exports range from combat aircraft to Pakistan, Morocco, Greece, Romania and Chile to small arms and light weapons to the Philippines, Egypt and Georgia.

In 2006 and 2007, the United States sold weapons to more than 174 states and territories.At the beginning of the Bush administration there were 123 arms clients, the report said.

CHILE REPORTS 4.1 PERCENT ECONOMIC GROWTH IN 12-MONTH PERIOD ENDING IN OCTOBER

SANTIAGO, Chile – Chilean officials say the economy grew by 4.1 percent in the 12 months ending in October, less than the previous 12-month period but still strong enough to ward off a recession.

The economy grew 5.3 percent in the 12 months ending in October 2007, and 5.1 percent for all of 2007.

The Central Bank predicts 4 percent to 4.5 percent growth for all of 2008 and 2 percent to 3 percent for 2009.

Economic growth is expected to slow during 2009 as a result of the international crisis, but the bank says Chile will not fall into a recession.

ECUADOR RETIRA CONCESIÓN MINERA A EMPRESA CANADIENSE (Ecuador)

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on November 21, 2008

Portoviejo, 20-11-2008

El Estado ecuatoriano, a través de la Dirección Regional de Minería de Pichincha, decidió retirar una concesión minera en la zona andina del país a la empresa canadiense Ascendant Copper S.A. por “incumplimientos legales”, informó hoy el Gobierno. “En un hecho histórico, el Estado ecuatoriano y la Dirección (…) decidieron declarar la extinción de los derechos mineros respecto de las áreas Golden 1 y Golden 2, en la zona de Íntag en la provincia Imbabura”, detalló en un comunicado el ministerio de Minas y Petróleos.

Según la Dirección Regional de Minería de Pichincha, cuya capital es Quito, la empresa canadiense incumplió varios trámites antes de adjudicarse la concesión.

Según la nota del ministerio ecuatoriano, la compañía “no realizó la consulta previa” a los pobladores de las comunidades donde iba a operar.

Además, el “estudio de impacto ambiental que presentó para la adjudicación fue declarado como ‘no procesable’ en diciembre de 2006”.

La resolución que emitió la Dirección Regional se “ampara en el artículo 1 del Mandato Minero” que emitió la desaparecida Asamblea Constituyente el año pasado.

Dicha resolución establece que se tiene que “declarar la extinción sin compensación económica alguna de todas las concesiones mineras que, en la fase de exploración, no hayan realizado ninguna inversión en el desarrollo del proyecto”.

También señala que se debe retirar la concesión a aquellas empresas “que no hayan presentado su respectivo estudio de impacto ambiental o que no hayan realizado los procesos de consulta previa, inclusive las que estén pendientes de resolución administrativa”.

Las áreas Golden 1 y Golden 2 en las que operaba la canadiense tenían una superficie de 2.461 hectáreas la primera y 2.443 la segunda, añade el informe del ministerio.

El retiro de la concesión a la empresa canadiense se da en momentos en los que la Comisión Legislativa analiza un proyecto de ley de minería enviado por el Ejecutivo y que varias agrupaciones ecológicas y de indígenas critican.

Los grupos ecológicos aseguran que con la nueva ley minera se contaminará el medio ambiente y se privatizará la tierra, mientras que el Estado asevera que la explotación se hará de forma responsable. EFE
