no health cutsby Kaos.

The ‘Troika’ are demanding ever more cuts in Spain, due to the collapse of the corrupt banks which are being ‘rescue’ by endless billions pf piblic money and loans
Amnesty International (AI) criticizes the health reforms have left 873,000 immigrants without health card in Spain “preventing or hindering” their access to health care, and “sometimes even putting their lives at risk.” The local rabid right have seized the moment to sell of the Madrid health sustem to their corrupt friends.

Amnesty death risk warning for immigrants without medical coverage

Non health care for illegal immigrants is a “regressive and discriminatory” measure that is “prohibited by law and international human rights standards.”
Furthermore, this “health maze” could cause a chilling effect on some people who would choose not to attend health centers.
Amnesty International makes a number of recommendations to the Ministry of Health to prevent the occurrence of new cases like the Senegalese citizen. Among them, requesting that they “restore the universality of health rights, write a report assessing the impact of the Royal Decree that cut immigrants rights and that th government stop making speeches that stigmatize immigrants.”
These requests are made to be extended to the regions, requiring to inform medical personnel and “eliminate administrative irregularities that could lead to further exclusion of healthcare.”

Las reformas sanitarias han dejado sin tarjeta a 873.000 inmigrantes

Amnistía Internacional (AI) critica que las reformas en materia de sanidad han dejado a 873.000 inmigrantes sin tarjeta sanitaria en España “impidiendo o dificultando” su acceso al sistema sanitario, e “incluso poniendo en ocasiones su vida en riesgo”.

En una rueda de prensa, celebrada ayer jueves en Palma, el director de AI España, Esteban Beltrán, ha considerado esta medida “regresiva” y “discriminatoria” y ha pedido que se modifique el Real Decreto-Ley aprobado el uno de septiembre del año pasado, en el que, según AI, se “limita” el derecho a la salud de las personas inmigrantes, que tienen que pagar para recibir asistencia sanitaria, incluida la primaria.

La organización advierte de que la crisis económica no debería ser una excusa para recortar hasta el punto de “menoscabar la disponibilidad, accesibilidad y calidad de los servicios de atención sanitaria”. Por eso, Beltrán ha pedido un informe real sobre el “ahorro” que se habría conseguido hasta ahora.

No obstante, el problema básico, según Beltrán, es que la Constitución Española no recoge los derechos a la sanidad y a la vivienda como derechos fundamentales, de tal manera que son más susceptibles de ser modificados. Así, afirma que muchas personas quedan desprotegidas ante la ley y opina que deberían convertirse en derechos fundamentales.

“EL LABERINTO DE LA EXCLUSIÓN SANITARIA”

Para denunciar la incidencia de estas medidas, que AI considera una violación a los derechos humanos, en Baleares, la organización ha elaborado un informe llamado “El laberinto de la exclusión sanitaria. Vulneraciones del derecho a la salud en las Islas Baleares”, que ha sido presentado en rueda de prensa esta mañana.

En ella, el autor del informe, Ignacio Jovtis, ha manifestado que sólo en el archipiélago, se han retirado 20.000 tarjetas sanitarias, alrededor del 2% de la población balear.

Jovtis también ha asegurado haber documentado casos de inmigrantes que, por “desinformación”, no han recibido un servicio al que por norma sí que tienen derecho, a parte de todos aquellos casos “invisibles” de personas sin papeles que renuncian a acudir al médico por miedo a que “les pillen” o porque no tienen cómo pagar el servicio y que no llegan a AI.

Por todo ello, el autor del informe ha pedido que la Consejería tome medidas y que se informe con exactitud al personal sanitario para que se eliminen las “irregularidades” que pueden “crear más exclusión”.

Thus, the central anarcosindicalista adds to actions before the courts of Buenos Aires by relatives of victims, associations recovery of historical memory and others.
CNT lawsuit against genocide Franco Argentina

As the CNT pointed out, “the international law on human rights defined as crimes against humanity, and therefore inalienable, a number of crimes, murder, torture, forced disappearance or slavery, among others-that Francoism fulfilled completely “. In this sense, it argues that “the so-called ‘Amnesty Law of 1977, passed with the votes for the PSOE, PCE and PNV parties, was actually ‘final ending’ law which guaranteed impunity for the instigators and executors of serious violations of human rights “.

Ecuador: Inter-American Court ruling marks key victory for Indigenous Peoples

A regional human rights court has come down in favour of the Sarayaku Indigenous community in the Ecuadorian Amazon in what Amnesty International has called a key victory for Indigenous Peoples.

The Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) ruling in Sarayaku v. Ecuador, ends a decade-long legal battle by the Sarayaku Indigenous People – backed by their lawyers Mario Melo and the Centre for Justice and International Law (CEJIL)
CGC, partnering with ConocoPhillips, felled forests, destroyed a cultural site, and drilled hundreds of boreholes for seismic surveying on tribal lands despite never gaining permission to do so from the community. As tensions rose, the Ecuadorian government set up military camps on indigenous land. Continue reading
