Robot-YouTube is here

01 Oct 2023  |  ETC.se

Bloody Election in the New Narco-State

31 Aug 2023  |  ETC.se
Ecuador is experiencing a surge in violence and political instability, transforming into a narco-state similar to Colombia in the 1980s and Mexico in recent years. The murder of a political figure has intensified the already tense political climate, with left-wing candidate Luiza González and right-wing candidate Daniel Noboa vying for the presidency. The violence has led to a focus on law and order, benefiting right-wing narratives. However, the infiltration of cartels into state structures complicates efforts to combat them. Proposals to involve U.S. agencies like the FBI and DEA are met with skepticism, questioning the effectiveness and motives of U.S. involvement in the drug war.

Uruguay soon the best in the world at wind power

24 Jan 2016  |  ETC.se
Uruguay is on track to become the world leader in wind power generation by 2016, with a significant portion of its electricity being produced from renewable sources. The Artilleros wind park, a collaboration between Uruguayan and Brazilian state power companies UTE and Elektrobras, is managed by just five people and is maintained by Indian manufacturer Suzlon. The country has reduced its oil imports dramatically since 2007 and has transitioned from being a net importer of electricity to exporting to Argentina and Brazil. Uruguay's success in renewable energy has been recognized internationally, receiving praise from the World Bank and the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean. The country aims to reduce its fossil fuel usage to just 12% of what it was at the turn of the century by 2017, with plans to electrify the transportation sector.

Total insecurity at the plantation

02 Jul 2012  |  Dagens Arbete
Insecure employment, low wages, and poor working conditions are commonplace for staffing employees in Argentina, with those protesting at risk of blacklisting. Multinational companies Adecco and Manpower are behind the recruitment. During a raid over a year ago, AFIP found 130 workers in substandard conditions at El Algarrobo farm in Buenos Aires province. The workers, hired to 'nip' hybrid corn flowers, were employed by agricultural giants Nidera and Pioneer but recruited by Adecco and Ruralpower, a local subsidiary of Manpower. Sociologist Agustina Desalvo noted that such labor practices are typical in the industry. Former picker Miguel Angel Serrano described the harsh working conditions and mentioned being blacklisted by Ruralpower for demanding better working conditions. Despite weak legislation, authorities initiated investigations against multinational companies in the sector. Serrano eventually found work at a cooperative supported by the Ministry for Social Development. Manpower Argentina did not respond to repeated inquiries for comment.
