Darfur: Yet, another Chapter in the Humanitarianism and Political Discourse

In view of the evolving humanitarian situation in Darfur, one is compelled to reconsider various aspects of the relations between aid and politics. At this junction, my strong conviction is that humanitarian Aid agencies need, very seriously, to rethink their inherent discourse and dialectical status and motives, and has to make the right choices between international humanitarian aid "as an industry/ business linked to international foreign policies and globalization", and between the rhetoric… Continue

The Godzilla of Racist Bloggers

On Feb. 3 2009 I had made a blog post which expressed my opinions about this blogger.


Little did I know that the blogger's intention was the site is a joke. However, there isn't anywhere claiming that it is a joke and that the blogger intends to be joking, so I took it seriously. A few of her blogs I do not find funny, and in those I found offinsive, she is convencingly serious. Whatever.

Twitter revolution – no coup d’etat but big drama anyway

Twitter revolution did not change government in Moldova but created big drama instead including a couple of conspiracy theories and “fast-track” mini enlargement of EU with one million new EU citizens while Moldova possibly losing a quarter its citizens with same deal. So a relatively small improvised demonstration can lead its (mis)use for possible purposeful utilization of multidimensional aims of different players.

Con los ojos abiertos: El Archipiélago de San Andrés

Preguntas equivocadas, respuestas equivocadas

Cómo evitar el hambre en Nicaragua

No es ni tan complicado. Algo supieron los países que hoy día son ricos, décadas y centenarios atrás. Son esos aprendizajes los que ahora se les están prohibiendo poner en práctica a los países pobres. Se está prohibiendo que ellos hagan lo mismo que los ricos hacían desde antes.

Cómo hacerse rico
