Since yesterday, and actually earlier, middle-class activists have been urging Egyptians to suspend the protests and return to work, in the name of patriotism, singing some of the most ridiculous lullabies about "let's build new Egypt," "let's work harder than even before," etc. In case you didn't know, actually Egyptians are among the hardest working people in the globe already. Those activists want us to trust Mubarak's generals with the transition to democracy -- the same junta that has provided the backbone of his dictatorship over the past 30 years. And while I believe the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, who receive $1.3 billion annually from the US, will eventually engineer the transition to a "civilian" government, I have no doubt it will be a government that will guarantee the continuation of a system that will never touch the army's privileges, keep the armed forces as the institution that will have the final say in politics (as for example in Turkey), guarantee Egypt will continue to follow the US foreign policy, whether it's the undesired peace with the Apartheid State of Israel, safe passage for the US Navy in the Suez Canal, the continuation of the Gaza siege, or exports of natural gas to Israel at subsidized rates. A civilian government is not about cabinet members who do not wear military uniforms. A civilian government means a government that fully represents the Egyptian people's demands and desires without any intervention from the brass. And I see this as hard to be allowed, let alone accomplished, by the junta. ... read full story / add a comment

Si no tuviese el salario mínimo las connotaciones que tiene, la noticia de su aumento sería el chiste del año. Obviamente un chiste de humor negro, pero chiste. Sin embargo las implicaciones reales son muy tristes, como quiera que el salario mínimo sea el indicador de la remuneración de la fuerza de trabajo, y con él la capacidad de compra de los asalariados de los bienes y servicios para satisfacer sus necesidades y alcanzar sus aspiraciones. Comida, techo, vestuario, servicios públicos, educación, salud y por qué no esparcimiento, incluidas las indispensables vacaciones. Pero todo eso se va en esto: en ilusiones; porque con los magros ingresos de los más pobres, casi de sobrevivencia, lo único que tienen garantizado son la escasez y las carencias. ... read full story / add a comment

El desierto de Atacama por unos días se convirtió en el escenario predilecto de centenares de reflectores y cámaras que apuntaban, como si se tratara de dos estrellas de Hollywood, a los esposos Piñera, quienes lograron convertir un hecho lamentable, en uno de los episodios mediáticos más destacados de los últimos tiempos. El espectáculo consiguió enterrar en la mente de los televidentes obvias preguntas: ¿Por qué se presentó el accidente? ¿Bajaron los mineros rodeados de las mínimas medidas de seguridad o por el contrario lo hacían corriendo aceleradamente a la muerte? A pesar de las innumerables situaciones que ocurren a diario en el mundo y que ponen en riesgo la vida de los mineros de socavón y de explotaciones a cielo abierto, tal parece que predomina la desmedida ambición de los inversionistas por sacarle provecho al negocio, antes que garantizar la integridad de sus trabajadores por los costos que les representa. ... read full story / add a comment

Cuando el Presidente Piñera se presenta más preocupado por la imagen internacional de Chile que por anunciar medidas legales concretas para remediar la situación de precariedad y desprotección generalizada en la cual viven la mayoría de los trabajadores, está poniendo en entredicho sus propias declaraciones. De paso nos revela que adolece del síndrome del wishfull thinking: tomar sus deseos por la realidad. ... read full story / add a comment
