#SalvemosGalápagos Protejan y restauren la playa los Marinos en la Isla San Cristobal

Desde hace 25 años he vivido en las islas Galápagos, conformada por 13 islas y más de 9000 especies, siendo declarada Patrimonio Natural de la Humanidad en 1978. Tristemente hoy en una de sus Islas, “La Isla de San Cristóbal”, aquel patrimonio no está siendo respetando. En esta Isla se albergan fragatas, piqueros patas azules, lobos marinos, iguanas marinas, y cientos de especies más. La biodiversidad de esta isla está en riesgo, porque en una de sus playas llamada Los Marinos, existe contaminación y desprotección ambiental, poniendo en riesgo su equilibrio. Actualmente, este lugar ha sido abandonado por las autoridades, y es utilizado por embarcaciones turísticas o pesqueras, que utilizan materiales y sustancias peligrosas, poniendo en riesgo a la comunidad y al medio ambiente. Si bien Galápagos vive del turismo, no podemos permitir que esto vaya en contra del medio ambiente. La población debe recuperar cuanto antes la playa los Marinos, creando el espacio e infraestructura necesaria, para que las embarcaciones turísticas y pesqueras realicen sus reparaciones sin daños ambientales. Recordemos que el ecosistema de Galápagos es muy frágil, y este tipo de intervenciones afectan seriamente su equilibrio. Necesitamos que se prevenga y mitigue el daño que se está haciendo en Los Marinos. Firma y comparte esta petición para proteger Galápagos y que el turismo crezca de forma sostenible con la comunidad y el medio ambiente.

Petition to Justin Bieber, Danna Paola

Justin Bieber, please remix "Agüita"

As it's being mentioned, remixing "Despacito" was an idea by Justin Bieber himself (1). The remix went on to become the first Spanish-language song to lead the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time in 20 years. "Despacito" became a bridge that united a long-lasting gap between languages. It knocked down frontiers and created a common feeling between English and Spanish speakers. Uniting people is the very essence of pop. For a few minutes, it doesn't matter who you are or where you came from, the song becomes you and you become the song. Currently, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is in talks of being renegotiated or even abandoned, the relationship between the three countries that compose North America is more troubled than ever. This is why I come to you today, Mr. Bieber, asking you to go one step further. "Agüita" is a song released in 2013 by Mexican recording artist and actress Danna Paola, written and produced by chilean singer Javiera Mena and producer Cristián Heyne. "Agüita" is considered the pinnacle of Mexican pop, it's cherished and beloved by thousand - if not millions - of people all around Mexico and Latin America. "Agüita" unites people and celebrates life, a feeling much alike "Despacito (Remix)". Remixing "Agüita" would bring the people from North America together regardless of language, status and background. Something we so desperately need in these difficult times. Moreover, remixing "Agüita" would further develop your career in Spanish-speaking countries, Mr. Bieber, and, without a doubt in my mind, would be another brick in the foundation that supports your status as the most important performer in contemporary pop music. You can view "Agüita" on the following link: https://youtu.be/Qd7qLXya_V.  "Agüita" can also be streamed on Spotify and purchased on iTunes. Please purchase "Agüita" and finance the Latin American arts. This is my plea, Mr. Bieber: remix "Agüita". Save North America.

Petition to President Mauricio Macri of Argentina

Give Jimmy Carter the Order of the Liberator General San Martín

Under pressure from the Trump Administration, the government of Argentina withdrew the honor of the Order of the Liberator General San Martín — the maximum distinction that the country can give to a foreign personality. The official tribute, which had already been approved by the foreign ministry and was published in the Official Gazette, was cancelled after receiving a specific request by the US government, which would have suggested it would be better to delay it. Carter was to be given the award for his work in promoting human rights during Argentina’s last military dictatorship. After being informed about the decision, the foreign ministry had again requested that President Macri give the award in spite of the rejection by Trump’s government since it had been made official, according to an anonymous foreign ministry official consulted by CNN’s David Cox. While another former Argentine official attributed the delay of the award to Carter as based on a problem due to the President’s tight schedule, since his trip to Washington DC would be very short, lasting only two days from April 26 to April 27. Former Argentine ambassador to the United States Martín Lousteau had proposed awarding Carter the San Martín Order of Liberator. At that time, it had been discussed whether Lousteau would be the one to lead the event or whether they would wait until the president travelled to Washington DC. It was finally decided that Macri would give the award. But former President Carter’s communications director also confirmed to CNN that they hadn’t received any details about the award ceremony. An anonymous Let’s Change government official. On the other hand, informed CNN that the decision not to give Carter an official award was to “avoid conflicts” and so they can speak about issues of mutual interest shared between Trump’s and Macri’s administration. The Council that reviews potential recipients of the Order of the Liberator General San Martin had said that Carter merited the distinction for his record in defending human rights. It highlighted how he had demanded the last military dictatorship for the location of thousands of forced-disappeared victims, had condemned the human rights violations being carried then, and that he had been instrumental in getting the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights to visit the country in 1979. It is also recognised his decision to create an Under-Secretary in charge of Human Rights at the State Department, and the creation of the Carter Center in 1982, in which the former president continued to involve himself in the defence of human rights and democracies throughout Latin America. President Macri met Trump yesterday in the White House. It is our responsibility as decent human beings to promote peace and kind treatment of fellow human beings.  The attempt to block this award is petty and contradictory to our evolution.  Please sign the petition and let the people of Argentina know how you feel. Thank you for your time...
