The Children Whose Mothers Were Taken Away by Machismo

“Where’s mom?,” asks Sgt. Roberto Mercado at the doorway of the light green house, located in the La Fuente neighborhood, in the town of Florida.

Behind the window, a 2-year-old boy responds by looking down at the floor next to him.

“For me, it was a sign that his mom was dead,” says the Puerto Rico Police negotiator about the femicide that he had to handle on the afternoon of June 30, 2018.

Dorado: A ‘Paradise’ of Inequities and Climate Emergency

Just over a mile of coastline separates Pocita Julio Barroso Valentín and Kikita Beach from the most exclusive beaches on the grounds of the Embassy Suites Hotel and the controlled access neighborhoods of the Dorado del Mar residential complex. All those beaches are in the Higuillar neighborhood in Dorado. “La Pocita” and Kikita Beach, located in the Mameyal sector, see their main access gate closed at 6 p.m., as dictated by a municipal ordinance that went into effect in 2018, after residents of the area demanded peace at night. Some residences in the area known as “La Pocita” in the Mameyal sector are for sale for between $60,000 and $100,000, as I saw on property sales pages. A cyclone fence with a green mesh defines the other reality, to the west of Mameyal, where the beaches of the Embassy Suites Hotel and Dorado del Mar are located.

Cómo el mayor bufete de Estados Unidos canaliza la riqueza global hacia paraísos fiscales

Un asesor del primer ministro de Malasia necesitaba ayuda para gestionar empresas en la capital, Kuala Lumpur, y en Hong Kong. Los fiscales afirman que este asesor y sus socios utilizaron las empresas para desviar cientos de millones de dólares procedentes de un fondo de desarrollo económico del Gobierno. Un fabricante ruso de rifles Kalashnikov, sometido a sanciones internacionales por conducta indebida, quería vender sus acciones en una gran mina de cobre a una turbia empresa de Mongolia. La venta desató una investigación por corrupción contra el entonces primer ministro de Mongolia. El gigante tecnológico Apple estaba buscando un paraíso fiscal para depositar su montaña de dinero en efectivo en el exterior.
