  1. Reforma de la ley de drogas en Honduras

    01 Enero 2010
    Tema
    En los últimos años, Honduras se ha convertido en el país con los niveles más altos de violencia de todo el mundo. Según cifras de la Oficina de las Naciones Unidas contra la Droga y el Delito (UNODC), en 2012 el país tenía una tasa de homicidios de 92 por cada 100 000 personas. La delincuencia organizada y su vinculación con el tráfico de drogas pueden ser una de las causas de este aumento de la violencia. Las pandillas del narcotráfico usan el país como un punto de tránsito en la ruta hacia los Estados Unidos. La violencia está relacionada con los conflictos entre las pandillas en su disputa territorial, extorsión, lavado de dinero, etc. En 2012 se propusieron varias iniciativas legislativas para reducir el narcotráfico y mejorar la transparencia y la eficacia del sistema judicial y las fuerzas de seguridad.

    01 Enero 2010
    Tema

    En 1993, Venezuela sustituyó la pena de cárcel con “medidas de seguridad social” para la posesión de hasta 2 gramos de cocaína y 20 gramos de cannabis.

  7. Reforma de la ley de drogas en Guatemala

    01 Enero 2010
    Tema

    Desde que ganó las elecciones en 2012, el presidente Pérez Molina ha estado impulsando un debate sobre la necesidad de modificar las políticas de drogas. Esta iniciativa arrancó a nivel internacional, en primera instancia en la región centroamericana, y luego en la Cumbre de las Américas, a través de la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA), extendiéndose posteriormente a la ONU. Aunque se ha anunciado en varias ocasiones una revisión del marco legal nacional existente en materia de drogas, en el Congreso guatemalteco aún no se ha presentado ninguna propuesta para reformar la ley.

      Reforma de la ley de drogas en Jamaica

      01 Enero 2010
      Tema

      Considerada como la meca de la cultura del cannabis, muchos se sorprenden al saber que Jamaica sólo recientemente ha comenzado a emprender una reforma de sus leyes para el cannabis. El cultivo, la venta y el consumo de cannabis y de todas las drogas han sido ilegales desde 1913. Sin embargo, en junio de 2014 el Gobierno de Jamaica anunció que despenalizaría próximamente la tenencia de marihuana para consumo personal así como para los usos religiosos y médicos. En febrero de 2015, tanto el Senado como la Cámara de Representantes aprobaron un proyecto de ley que además de despenalizar la posesión de hasta dos onzas de cannabis, tiene la intención de allanar el camino para una industria de la marihuana medicinal legal en Jamaica.

    • Drug law reform in Honduras

      01 Enero 2010
      Tema

      In recent years, Honduras has become the country with the highest levels of violence in the world. According to figures from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), in 2012 the country had a murder rate of 92 per 100,000 people. Organised crime and its connection with drug trafficking may be one of the causes of this increase in violence. Drug trafficking gangs use the country as a transit point on the route to the United States. The violence is related to the conflicts between the gangs in their dispute over territory, extortion, money laundering, etc. Several legislative initiatives were proposed in 2012 to reduce drug trafficking and improve transparency and effectiveness in the judicial system and the security forces.

    • Human rights to land, sea and food

      01 Enero 2010
      Tema

      As rising consumption and the environmental crisis intensify pressure on resources, local communities are increasingly being dispossessed of the resources on which they depend for their survival. Large-scale investments --including some pitched as sustainable development, climate smart agriculture, blue and green growth -- take control of resources away from local communities. Increasingly, communities opposing these initiatives are using the language of human rights to land, sea, and food to articulate a vision of democratic access, management and control of resources where access to land, fisheries, food and other life-giving resources is protected. The experiences of communities using human rights instruments like the Voluntary Guidelines on the Governance of Land, Fisheries, and Forests (VGGTS) show that another approach is possible and that governance structures that put marginalized communities and their human rights at the centre of land and resource governance can have a transformative impact on people’s lives.

      Fisheries and Fisher Peoples

      01 Enero 2010
      Tema

      The dynamics playing out in international, regional, and local fisheries policies show striking similarities to processes of land and resource grabbing observed in other contexts over recent decades. However, public awareness of these issues is far lower. There is an acute crisis of marine and aquatic resources and most policy solutions ignore or actively exclude small scale fishers who rely on access to these resources for their livelihoods. TNI works at a number of levels to expose fisheries and environmental policies negatively affecting small-scale fishers. We work with movements to develop analyses, defend the rights of small-scale fishers, and support them when participating in key policy-making spaces.

    • Transformative Practices

      01 Enero 2010
      Tema

      We are facing a climate and environmental crisis and both corporations and governments are often responding with capital-intensive, urban-focused, highly centralized and undemocratic solutions. Solutions, in other words, that reproduce the structural factors that led to the current crises. At the same time, however, communities and social movements around the world are advocating for genuinely transformative solutions that would address the roots of the current crisis and contribute to system change. Communities are fighting for food sovereignty; energy democracy and sovereignty; democratic control of resources; human-rights centred policies, based on a re-grounded and revitalized notion of human rights that recognizes the concept’s relevance to a wide range of social and resource struggles; and ultimately for a transformative vision of a just transition to a just and sustainable society. These alternatives are more than proposals: local communities around the world are already putting them into practice and developing systems, communities, networks, and movements that prefigure this kind of transition by modelling alternative understandings of our relationships to nature, and each other.

    • Climate and Environmental (in)justice

      01 Enero 2010
      Tema

      The environmental crisis is worsening day by day: Climate change is an urgent global threat with dramatically different effects around the world; air pollution and biodiversity loss driven by habitat destruction and the impacts of industrial agriculture are just some of its manifestations. Around the world communities and social movements have historically developed ways of relating to non-human nature in more balanced ways. Today, a growing number of “false solutions” to the environmental crisis rely on market-based projects that further erode local communities’ democratic control over resources and increase corporate take-over of those resources, now described as “sustainable development”. A clear understanding of the systemic forces driving climate change and environmental destruction on the one hand, and exploitation and dispossession of communities on the other, is critical to seeking out and realizing real solutions to urgent environmental threats.
