Viral election video urges Costa Ricans to reject the historically dominant parties

Monge inherited a country wracked by economic despair. Costa Rica suffered as much of the world did from soaring oil prices brought on by the 1979 Iranian revolution. Costa Rican exports, on the other hand, were at a low point, including bananas, coffee and sugar.Many Costa Ricans at the time blamed the policies of then–President Rodrigo Carazo, who ordered the Central Bank of Costa Rica to borrow heavily to deal with the economic downturn, against the advice of the International Monetary Fund and his own finance minister. Inflation soared with the colón losing 500 percent of its value.Monge came into power and reversed many of the government-controlled elements of the economy, moving to a more free-market approach. He cut spending, removed import and export taxes, and developed the tourism industry. Monge’s reforms seemed to pay off at the time, with dropping inflation and unemployment.Authors of the current video appear to be singling out this ideology as the culprit for the country’s current woes. At one point in the video it remarks that Costa Ricans have seen the same last names in political power during the last 30 years – sons, cousins, brothers. Current PLN presidential candidate Johnny Araya – who was the mayor of Costa Rica’s capital for two decades – is the nephew of Luis Alberto Monge.Many social media users applauded the video, sharing it with friends in their networks. But it hasn’t been well received by all Costa Ricans. Environment Minister René Castro dismissed the video as having glaring omissions, such as not mentioning the crisis during Carazo’s administration. (Pro-business and pro-tourism environmental policies came under fire in the video.)“’My name is Costa Rica’ is pretty, but typical of leftist communications professors and graduate students,” Castro said, according to Channel 7. “It narrates with emphasis … ancient economic theories; more rice and beans, no pineapple and less golf.”The business newspaper El Financiero published a column titled “What ‘Our name is Costa Rica’ won’t say.” In the article, libertarian columnist Juan Hidalgo accused the video of being a veiled promotion for progressive Broad Front Party candidate José María Villalta. Hidalgo said he was critical of the PLN as well, but that high level of government control of the economy is not sustainable.“For [the video’s authors], it was a paradise 30 years ago when some covetous neoliberals began to dismantle the bricks of Costa Rican solidarity,” Hidalgo wrote. “They do not mention that the model to which they want the country to return has imploded.” Facebook Comments Over the weekend, a group of University of Costa Rica (UCR) students released a nonpartisan video renouncing the traditional political parties that have run the Central American country for more than half a century.Mass communications students released the video last Friday, and it has already received more than 100,000 views as of Monday, being shared widely by Costa Ricans on social media platforms. The video is titled “Nuestro nombre es Costa Rica” – “Our name is Costa Rica.”“For 30 years, you have decided that some people are more important than everyone,” the video’s narrator said at its opening.For the project, one woman traveled across the seven provinces of Costa Rica critiquing the economic development model she said is responsible for social ills such as a 21 percent household poverty rate and levels of inequality worse than Mexico and El Salvador. The video also attacked environmental policies such as private beaches and privatization of water resources.“We want “Our name is Costa Rica” to be a space to reflect on the problem of the development model that has been imposed on us for the last 30 years,” the student group wrote on a Facebook page.The students said they are not affiliated nor are endorsing any political party or candidate in upcoming February elections. But their attacks appear to be directed at the current ruling National Liberation Party (PLN) and the Social Christian Unity Party (PUSC), which have been the dominant parties for more than 50 years.The video appeared during a political campaign holiday enforced by the Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE), which lasts from Dec. 16 to Jan. 1. During that time, parties cannot release advertisements and can only conduct limited in-person campaign activities. However, nothing prevents nonpartisan groups from releasing videos.Luis Guillermo Solís, presidential nominee for the Citizen Action Party (PAC), praised the video, according to Channel 7 News.“Those who have governed us for the last 30 years have imposed a model of exclusionary development that has increased inequality, violence and poverty,” Solís said. “Without a doubt, we need to rescue Costa Rica.”PAC formed as a progressive party in 2000 from discontented former members of the PLN who accused that party of corruption.last_img read more

Bryns pura vida how Costa Rica inspired a teenagers musical legacy

first_imgBryn left behind a musical legacy of the pure life inspired by Costa Rica; a legacy that allows his parents to hold on of who he was, how he thought and what he chose to express through art.“There is nothing that can ever compensate for Bryn’s loss, but as his parents, we cling to what he left behind, including his music. One of my friends who was at the Orpheum concert said to me afterward: ‘In my interpretation of how the world works, some aspect of Bryn is now floating around the ceiling of the Orpheum, mingling with aspects of Shostakovich and Tovey et al. Not bad company.’” Buechert writes. “Indeed, it seems as if each time his music is played, a part of him is still alive and sending us his message, one of love for life and for the things that make life worth living.” The year is 1998. A couple in Langley, British Columbia, is excited to welcome their first and only child: Bryn Hutchinson. Bryn’s parents are Marian Buechert, a writer and editor of books, magazines and blogs, and Mark Hutchinson, who works in quality control within the food processing industry.Bryn’s parents are thrilled about their child, who is full of life. As Bryn grows up, his parents notice he’s quiet, yet an intense person interested in listening more than speaking.“When Bryn was two, he hardly spoke. He mostly pointed and used just a few simple words. When he finally began to talk, it was in full sentences. Soon he was using long words and complicated vocabulary. He was reading well before he started school, and throughout his life, he read everything from fantasy novels to scientific non-fiction books,” Buechert tells The Tico Times in an email.This natural interest in reading and learning continues to develop when he goes to school, where he immerses himself in his subjects, particularly enjoying English and the sciences.“He loved maps: collecting them, pinning them on his walls, and drawing maps of both real and imagined places,” his mother writes. “He was always fascinated by nature and the environment, which led him into birding.” Birding or bird watching on the bank of the Tárcoles River. Courtesy of Marian BuechertAlong with his interest in school, he also enjoys respecting and helping others.“Bryn was a compassionate, tolerant, and caring friend who accepted everyone as they were. His friends have spoken to me about how they were drawn to him because he didn’t judge people and he had a kind of self-contained composure rare in a teenager. He was never cruel or mean. He wanted to help his friends always,” Buechert tells The Tico Times.In December 2014, Bryn and his family visit Costa Rica.“We chose Costa Rica because we were interested in learning more about this country that had no army and that was famous for its progressive environmental policies. We were also intrigued by the idea that Costa Rica had been ranked first in the world in the Happy Planet Index. And, of course, Costa Rica has amazing bird life,” Buechert writes. Filming hummingbirds in the gardens of the Arenal Observatory Lodge. Courtesy of Marian BuechertWhile visiting Costa Rica, Bryn decides to create a documentary titled “Resplendence” about the resplendent quetzal he sees while birdwatching. He applies what he’s been learning in his filmmaking course at the Langley Fine Arts School back home, and writes a script describing Costa Rica’s quetzal population as well as the country’s active role in protecting it.“Was it possible that Costa Rica’s recent population growth would oust the quetzals from even the last of their mountaintop forests? But, as I wandered the streets of San José, one night, I realized that the Costa Rican people wouldn’t let that happen,” the script reads. “Looking around, I saw the streets were as clean or cleaner than our own streets in Vancouver. Even with fewer natural resources, lower wages and shorter lifetimes, smaller populations and tighter spaces, the people were willing to sacrifice in the name of the environment. I doubted they would allow such a bird to go extinct.”Bryn is so inspired by Costa Rica that he doesn’t stop there: upon his return home, he decides to write an orchestral composition named “Pura Vida” for his music program, honoring the iconic Costa Rican phrase. Bryn playing drums at an informal performance at the Chan Centre, Vancouver. Courtesy of Marian Buechert“As part of his requirements for graduating from the music program, Bryn was asked to compose an original music piece on a theme of his choice,” Buechert writes to The Tico Times. “The piece is complex and full of tension, which reflected how he saw Costa Rica’s challenges. Despite the title of ‘pure life,’ this is not a sweet pastoral composition; there is a great deal of struggle and push-and-pull happening in it. ‘Pura Vida’ does not come without sacrifice and determination,” Buechert writes. Bryn with the final score of ‘Pura Vida’ after he stayed up all night to complete it. Courtesy of Marian BuechertThe piece was never performed by the Langley Fine Arts School, due to its complexity.Following his graduation in 2016, Bryn struggles to choose a university major that he is passionate about; he ends up choosing biology and gets accepted into the University of British Columbia. To help finance his education, he gets a summer job at a wildlife refuge.Things change in a tremendously unexpected and saddening manner for Bryn’s family on his way to work one day: he is killed in a car accident.“He didn’t have his driver’s license yet, so he was carpooling to the job in the mornings with a co-worker. En route, she made a fatal error and turned left directly in front of an oncoming dump truck. Being in the passenger seat, Bryn was crushed instantly. The driver survived with minor injuries,” Buechert writes.He was 17 years old.

Courtesy of Marian Buechert“There is nothing that did not change. Mark calls it ‘the day the world ended.’ Everyone experiences loss in their lives, but only parents who have lost a child understand what it is like. It is losing the best part of yourself. It is losing your connection to the future. It is seeing your partner suffer through the worst pain imaginable,” Buechert writes.After this unimaginable pain, in a very unexpected manner, the legacy of the pura vida that Bryn left behind was revived. A year after his death, in 2017, Langley Fine Arts School music program teacher Robert Goddard decided to perform Bryn’s “Pura Vida” composition at the Christ Church Cathedral. Bryn playing timpani at one of his final performances with the Langley Fine Arts Orchestra. Courtesy of Marian Buechert“When we heard the performance, we were so proud, both for them and for Bryn’s work, which we finally got to hear with proper instruments,” Buechert recalls.Another surprise was just ahead: during this performance, Maestro Bramwell Tovey, music director of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, heard the piece and was hooked. He wanted the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra to perform it, and so it did this year: the orchestra performed it at two concerts in June at the Orpheum, a theater and music venue located in Vancouver.“To sit in that theater and hear the full orchestra play our son’s music was a bit surreal, but afterward, we met backstage with Maestro Tovey and he was so warm, down-to-earth, and kind in speaking to us that I was able to take it all in a bit better,” Buechert tells the Tico Times.Watch the Langley Fine Arts School Orchestra perform ‘Pura Vida’ at the Christ Church Cathedral Related posts:Our favorite Weekend Arts Spotlight interviews of 2017 Tamarindo gears up for Art Wave Festival PHOTOS: The annual Oxcart Parade in Atenas, Alajuela 5 questions for a Canadian punk rock band in Costa Ricacenter_img Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Opportunity to reunify Cyprus finally before us updated

first_img“The opportunity for the reunification of Cyprus is now finally before us,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Tuesday, before the resumed Conference on Cyprus begins on Wednesday.In a written statement Guterres said he was “encouraged by the reconvening of the Conference” and “welcomed the determination shown by all participants in taking this important step.“I call on all concerned players to seize this opportunity, for Cyprus first and foremost, but also for the wider Eastern Mediterranean region,” he addedAs Secretary-General of the United Nations, the statement added, “I reiterate my steadfast commitment to supporting this effort”.“I urge all participants to demonstrate the will and leadership required to conclude a comprehensive settlement,” Guterres said.Although initially reported that Guterres was scheduled to arrive at Crans-Montana on Friday, his presence has not yet been confirmed as it will “depend on developments”.The international Conference on Cyprus will resume on Wednesday morning with a session on security and guarantees and no parallel discussion of other chapters of the Cyprus problem, sources cited by the Cyprus News Agency said on Tuesday.The kick-off meeting will take place in the presence of the two leaders President Nicos Anastasiades and Mustafa Akinci, United Nations Undersecretary-General for political affairs Jeffrey Feltman, UN special adviser Espen Barth Eide, the foreign ministers of Greece, Turkey and the United Kingdom, Nicos Kotzias, Mevlut Cavusoglu and Boris Johnson, and EU High Commissioner for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini.According to CNA sources in the afternoon session a parallel discussion on other issues will begin, starting with territory.Earlier, a working dinner will be hosted by the UN for participants on Tuesday night.Before the dinner, Anastasiades had a one-on-one meeting with Eide, followed by another one with Kotzias.After the dinner, Anastasiades will have a tete-a-tete with Johnson.According to the CNA’s sources, no departure date has been set for the foreign ministers of the three guarantor powers participating in the Conference.The Greek Cypriot delegation arrived mid-day to Geneva, from where a military helicopter, provided by the Swiss government, flew Eide and Anastasiades, along with some of the president’s advisers, to Crans-Montana.Akinci and Cavusoglu arrived in Geneva at 7.30pm Cyprus time and were too flown to the resort by helicopter. Upon his arrival in Geneva, Cavusoglu tweeted that the goal was “to find a comprehensive solution”.Anastasiades and Akinci were taking part with a six-member delegation each. The foreign ministers of the three guarantor powers have a four-member delegation each.CNA sources have said that the foundation of Wednesday’s discussion on the issue of security and guarantees will be the conclusions of the technocrats at Mont Pelerin 3 in January, when the issue was examined by the technical committees of the five interested parties.According to reports, the National Council will convene at 8.45am local time on Wednesday morning, ahead of the Cyprus conference, which is to begin at 11am.Anastasiades is accompanied by Attorney General Costas Clerides, chief negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis, Government Spokesman and Director of his Diplomatic Office Nikos Christodoulides, Undersecretary to the President Vasilis Palmas, Deputy Government Spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos and other officials.

news channels to tear themselves away from the usual discussions on their favourite election triangle: Narendra Modi Rahul Gandhi and Kejriwal So it is good to be able to compliment DD News and Rajya Sabha TV for discussing the latest developments in Ukraine Tuesday night Speaking of Rajya Sabha TV it’s got what looks like a really informative and interesting series on the making of the Indian Constitution Samvidhaan (Sunday) by Shyam Benegal is a dramatic reconstruction of how our Constitution was framed It has a good ensemble led by Sachin Khedekar as BR Ambedkar and Tom Alter as Maulana Azad with actor Swara Bhaskar as the host who leads you through Told in a series of discussions and conversations between the protagonists the first episode was dramatic and simple enough for the average viewer to understand the events that led to Partition and the creation of our Constitution Sunday also saw the return of Satyamev Jayate (Star Plus DD National) Aamir Khan’s conscience-keeper of the nation The first episode was devoted to rape and sexual harassment Two women who have been raped Urmila Singh Bharti and Suzette Jordan appeared on the show as their ordeals were narrated The episode also pointed out all the lacunae in dealing with rape cases — police medical neglect legal tardiness to mention only the most glaring — and had a wishlist of what needs to be done Laden with statistics on the incidence of rape the rate of convictions etc it was once again a compelling episode that should not only be watched but should lead to some action And there’s the rub: will anything

the status-quo power big enough to deter Pakistan by its very size Related News The outcome of the Modi-Nawaz meeting was predictably seen as disastrous by the swelling pro-army tide in Pakistan Pakistan and India have once again tried to forget the past and patch up using the swearing-in of India’s new prime minister Narendra Modi as the peg The extremists are not happy; they didn’t want Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to go to New Delhi The “doves” who matter less and less in Pakistan hope their leaders can climb over the brickwalls the two sides have raised to perpetuate conflict over many decades In Pakistan waters of all discussion were muddied by Sharif’s recent quarrel with the army over internal policy Pakistan was polarised between him and the army before Sharif took off for Delhi for his meeting with Modi on May 26 Predictions in Islamabad were dire: he is about to be dragged down in a re-run of many earlier overthrows Army chief Raheel Sharif who never looked the part was supposed to depose him and replace him with no one knew who The media “drunk with the wine of nation-worship” as they say backed the army in the quarrel There was a kind of double-take by most TV anchors who first thought hanging Pervez Musharraf was the right thing to do and the government was right in talking peace with the Taliban General Sharif by his actions seemed to signal to them that this was not what the army wanted Then the split came out in the open General Sharif first reasoned with PM Sharif over the treason trial of Musharraf; then after being ignored demonstrated the de facto power of the army by literally blacking out the GEO TV news channel across Pakistan for insulting the ISI Pakistan’s world-renowned army-controlled intelligence agency Discussants on TV talkshows were predominantly right-wing pro-army Cloying intellectuals sprinkled liberally with sharp-tongued retired military officers shut up the moderates whothought PM Sharif had done the right thing by inviting Modi for an official visit and then attending Modi’s swearing-in The outcome of the Modi-Sharif meeting was predictably seen as disastrous by the swelling pro-army tide TV anchors said: Sharif didn’t bring up Kashmir and Pakistan’s rivers being diverted by India; and Modi unfairly demanded an end to cross-border terrorism from Pakistan not even waiting for Sharif to return to Islamabad before appearing to order a move in Parliament to remove the constitutional provision giving special status to Kashmir and thus making it an integral part of India And that Sharif did not mention Balochistan where rascally India was stoking an insurgency but for which Pakistan has so far been reluctant to share proof with India Retired diplomats vented spleen on TV saying Sharif had caused Modi “to slap Pakistan on the face” Hating Modi is easy The entire world did it after 2002 Last year in Muslims in Indian Cities Trajectories of Marginalisation (edited by Laurent Gayer and Christophe Jaffrelot) the indictment was stark: “2002 was a state-sponsored pogrom to ‘clean’ the Hindu Rashtra The 2002 communal violence cannot be analysed the same way as the incidents of 1984 and 1992 This was not a riot but a pogrom which did not remain confined to a city but spread to many others and even to the countryside Twenty-six towns in all were subject to curfew” India under a secular Constitution was put to shame in 2002 Pakistan’s treatment of Hindus and other minorities under an “enabling” religious constitution causes no shame in Pakistan but the world is outraged by the conduct of its courts where ideologically biased judges behave like clerics The world is disappointed in India; it is disgusted by Pakistan which it sees failing as a state Pakistan’s revisionism towards India is at the root of its failure as a state India is the status-quo power big enough to deter Pakistan by its very size Revisionism places on Pakistan the obligation to attack in order to change the status quo The record shows it has not succeeded if you can’t stomach the term defeat The world is not with Pakistan During the Cold War when it got some support the supporters felt morally disturbed which is why Pakistan hates its Cold War supporters today in hindsight In 1998 after Pakistan tested its nuclear device it should have said goodbye to revisionism The theory is that nuclearisation “freezes” the status quo because two nuclear powers can’t attack each other You sit down and look at what each side has and agree to avoid mutual challenge After that you start normalisation through trade and people-to-people contact If you don’t do that you risk nuclear war which is no longer counted as a bilateral affair but something that endangers the globe Instead of that you sign a peace treaty on the basis of status quo Pakistan earned further opprobrium by attacking India in 1999 ridiculously saying the shepherds of Kargil had done it Then US president Bill Clinton led the world opinion that rounded on Pakistan and Nawaz Sharif told him in private he was not to blame for making nonsense of the doctrine of nuclear deterrent The stigma was deepened by the use of non-state actors by the deep state to attack and bleed India through cross-border terrorism till the Frankenstein recoiled on Pakistan and is now poised to bite the neck of all and sundry

ugly at times and one has to wear a thick skin to live there but Pakistan’s threadbare soul has been tortured for too long and its citizens who never got enough attention simply because the state was looking east thinking of attacking India to make it yield on the righteous cause of Kashmir are now prisoners of the ideas radiating from the terrorists meant to bother India not Pakistan The state talks to itself all the time because neither India nor the world is willing to listen to it Pakistan’s ex-foreign secretary Riaz Muhammad Khan in his book Afghanistan and Pakistan: Conflict Extremism and Resistance to Modernity (2011) has the following note on what the world wants of Pakistan if it is to survive: “Pakistan’s ambition to become a hub of economic activity would be difficult to materialise without the opening of transit routes to India When the idea of activating the northern route for commerce with Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan was initiated by Pakistan in early 1993 the two countries were enthusiastic The Kazakh minister for transportation convened a meeting and invited ambassadors from both Pakistan and India based in Alma Ata He was disappointed to learn that India
