OAS chief urges new approach to failed war on drugs

first_imgWASHINGTON, D.C. – With the Organization of American States due to hold a special general assembly in Guatemala on illicit drugs in less than a week, OAS Secretary General José Miguel Insulza insisted there now exists “regional consensus” regarding drug use and trafficking throughout the hemisphere.In a wide-ranging speech Tuesday at the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, Insulza said the 35 OAS member nations no longer see the drug problem as a public safety matter but rather as a public health issue. Authorities also want alternatives to jailing drug addicts, he said.The main theme of the Sept. 19 gathering in Guatemala is “For a Hemispheric Drug Policy in the 21st Century.” Its conclusions will be presented at the 2016 General Assembly of the United Nations.Insulza, citing an OAS report presented in May 2013 to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, said the decades-old “war on drugs” was simply not working.“There are more and more addicts, more people in jail, and still we haven’t solved the problem,” he said. “The war on drugs has been successful in the sense that half of the cocaine produced in 2011 was confiscated, and we have 3.6 million people in jail in the Americas, almost 40 percent of them for drug-related offenses. But business is better than ever. We don’t see how to stop it.”This largely explains why lawmakers at all levels of government across the Americas now talk less about absolute prohibition and “zero tolerance” – and more about decriminalization or legalization of marijuana possession, and sharply reduced penalties for those involved in the production and sale of pot and other illicit drugs.That’s a huge switch from 10 years ago, when few mainstream political leaders in Latin America discusses these ideas openly. These days, proponents of decriminalization include not only the president of Uruguay, José Mujica, but also the former presidents of Brazil, Mexico and Colombia.Recommended: Drug policy in Central America criminalizes poverty, says Costa Rica Public Security Minister For illustrative purposes. Costa Rican police watch over a cocaine seizure. The Tico TimesAccording to Inter-American Dialogue, “the landmark OAS report sets out the data and analysis that make clear the risks of sticking with current approaches. It also carefully lays out the alternatives, which present their own risks and benefits. Since its publication, the report has substantially enriched policy discussions and debates about drugs and given new credibility to those who have been arguing for changes in policy.”Insulza, a former Chilean interior minister who’s led the OAS since 2005, did say there seems to be less agreement in Latin America than in the United States on how to proceed. He conceded that the region’s heads of state are divided, with some of them refusing to weaken the war on drugs, and others not wanting to accept that it was failing.“We have to improve our work in matters of prevention and treatment if we’re really going to deal with the problem, but this is easier said than done,” Insulza told his audience of about 100 people, which included U.S. government officials, analysts, journalists and representatives from a dozen foreign embassies in Washington. “Some people will say that talking about this as a health problem is a way to avoid the issue.”Chile has the region’s highest coverage for drug abusers, treating at most 25 percent for their addictions.“One of every four drug addicts are really treated as addicts in my country, and even then, it’s not really clear how they should be treated,” he said. “Of all the people who use drugs, no more than 10 percent are actually drug addicts. The people who are really sick are those who use cocaine every day. Most of them experience drug use without ever becoming addicts who need treatment.”Recommended: Advocates of drug policy reform have a new voice in Costa Rica: members of law enforcementAsuntos del Sur, a Chilean think tank that supports the decriminalization of marijuana possession, last year conducted a regional survey revealing that “younger generations of Latin Americans are breaking from traditional views and are much more open” to changing their government’s current approach to drug policy.The lowest level of support for legalization and regulation of marijuana was found in El Salvador (23 percent), while the highest was in Argentina (80 percent) and Chile (79 percent). Seven out of 10 people polled in those two countries said recreational use is an individual right. Meanwhile, respondents across the region expressed low opinions of the effectiveness of government campaigns aimed at reducing drug use; 52 percent of Chileans and 46 percent of Mexicans disapproved of these campaigns.Besides growing opposition to the long-term detention of youths for minor drug offenses, high rates of incarceration lead to prison overcrowding, Insulza said.“If somebody’s ill, you don’t send him to jail for that. But most people in jail for drugs [in Latin America] are there for possession of a very small quantity,” the OAS chief explained. “Even though there’s a political consensus that we shouldn’t punish drug users, several countries continue to do so – even some countries where the law says you don’t go to jail for using drugs.”At the same time, Insulza said the region’s new approach to drugs in no way means it has given up the fight against organized crime gangs. On the contrary, he said that “in this area there is also consensus on the need to combat these groups operating outside the law.” Uruguayan President José Mujica gestures during an interview with Agence France-Presse at his house, on the outskirts of Montevideo on July 9, 2014. The South American country in December became the first in the world to announce that it would regulate the market for cannabis and its derivatives, a bold move by authorities frustrated with losing resources to fighting drug trafficking. Daniel Caselli/AFPWhen it comes to the OAS, however, skepticism abounds.Christopher Sabatini, senior director of policy at the Americas Society, said that pronouncements by the regional body do not necessary translate into action.“The OAS provides a forum for discussion of the issue, and its reports on drug production serves as an important source in the public debate,” he said. “The problem is that – as with all things in the OAS proper – the information and the potential to react to it are held captive to the consensus-based, political nature of the OAS.”For example, said Sabatini, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has determined that coca production is increasing in Bolivia, but what are the implications for regional policy of this finding?“On that follow-through, the OAS has struggled,” he said.Recommended: US Southern Command discusses drug policy with Costa Rica’s Solís Facebook Comments Related posts:Drug policy in Central America criminalizes poverty, says Costa Rica Public Security Minister Global drug policy isn’t working.

First lady hosts Girl Scout campout on White House lawn

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — Some lucky Girl Scouts were set for the ultimate camping experience Tuesday: an overnight in tents pitched on the White House South Lawn. Until late-night rain and thunder washed out the campout.It was the first time that one of the country’s most well-known expanses of manicured grass was turned into a campground, an excited Michelle Obama said as she greeted the 50 Girl Scouts who snagged coveted invitations to the outdoor sleepover. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies But after heavy rain began to fall late Tuesday, accompanied by thunder, the campers were moved to a conference room in an office building adjacent to the White House.Earlier, the scouts squealed upon realizing that President Barack Obama was approaching their singing circle, accompanied by the first lady.“What are you guys doing in my yard?” he said, before taking a seat on a hay bale. “When did you guys show up here?”He clapped and swayed to music from a guitar player as the girls sang, seated in a circle around lanterns that substituted for a roaring campfire.The girls swarmed him when, asked for a hug, he suggested a group one instead.“You guys aren’t going to be making a racket, are you?” he said, before leaving and then returning for a quick look at Saturn through a NASA telescope.Mrs. Obama, who was not a Girl Scout, said earlier that she didn’t know if she could “officially earn a badge but I want to try.”“I don’t know anything. I don’t know how to tie a knot. I don’t know how to pitch a tent,” she said, before drawing a proverbial line against one of their activities. “I’m definitely not climbing that wall.” Sponsored Stories Mesa family survives lightning strike to home 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes She did, however, master the art of tying the overhand knot and the square knot.The campout was co-sponsored by the Interior Department and celebrates the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.The White House is a national park.___Follow Darlene Superville on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/dsupervilleapCopyright © The Associated Press.

It’s exciting.”As honorary national president of the Girl Scouts, the first lady welcomed the fourth-graders for the evening, which was arranged as part of her Let’s Move initiative against childhood obesity. One component of the program encourages kids and their families to take advantage of the outdoors.The girls, who represent Girl Scout councils in Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, the District of Columbia and Oklahoma, spent the afternoon climbing a rock wall, tying knots, pitching tents and participating in orienteering exercises to earn a new outdoor badge.After dark, the girls sang songs and gazed up at the stars under instruction from NASA staff and scientists, including astronaut Cady Coleman, before calling it a night and settling into sleeping bags inside their two-person tents. About 20 chaperones were also spending the night outside.The White House declined to say whether the first lady would trade her second-floor bedroom for a tent, too.

slum-dwellers across the capital something as simple as going to the toilet can be a daunting task Abhishek Angad heads to eight JJ clusters each with a unique problem of its own to understand how people who live there make it through the day Niron Devi has never been to a toilet in the last 25 years The 55-year-old — who hails from Uttar Pradesh and works as a landless farmer in east Delhi’s Yamuna floodplains — defecates in a pit near her jhuggi on the floodplain While there is a Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) night shelter near the jhuggi with a toilet each for men and women Devi and other women from the area don’t use the toilets as they are dirty and lack a sewerage system Sometimes they say the authorities don’t allow them to use the toilets Not that relieving themselves in the open is any less troublesome Forming the hood of a snake with her hand Devi says “Sometimes we are forced to run half-naked if we spot one” From fear of snakes to incidents of sexual assault to being forced to use filthy toilets the plight of Devi and others like her stands out against the backdrop of the Aam Aadmi Party government’s claims that it is making the capital open defecation-free In the government’s radio advertisements a woman can be heard saying: “Chachi ye toh sahi hai pehle khule mein jaate the kitna kharab lagta tha Ab Dilli sarkar ne kitne badiya toilets bana ke diye hain mein to nahane bhi wahin jaati hoon aur kapde dhone bhi” The government has ambitious plans to make toilets accessible to all especially women Since coming to power it has constructed around 7000 toilet seats and plans to construct 7000 more before March 31 this year The Indian Express spent four days at eight JJ clusters across districts (see box) and found that this is a lot easier said than done Fear of the dark While dirty toilets are an obvious problem women in Devi’s area say they do not want to step out after dark to relieve themselves as they fear being assaulted They recount one such incident that happened in 2016 at another jhuggi 2 km away A 16-year-old girl had gone out to relieve herself when she was stabbed by her 20-year-old neighbour for resisting his advances The girl survived but is undergoing treatment at a Delhi hospital Meena a 19-year-old Delhi University student from the area says the government set up 10 prefabricated toilets last month “But how can one walk 2 km at night All we can do is try and control it” she says Guddu an activist had pushed for eight months to set up the toilets and explains how tedious the process can be “First a proposal was sent to DUSIB which sent it to the state pollution control board to conduct an environmental impact assessment Eventually work started but even then there were obstacles Sometimes the contractor would not turn up and once some policemen took me to the station to question me about construction work on the floodplain I had to show them documents before they let me go” says Guddu He has now been made the de-facto caretaker of the toilets — a job he does not like “People here don’t want to pay money (Re 1)… and I have to clean the entire toilet Plus I don’t get paid and the contractor asks me to manage on my own” he says The 10 toilets are meant to serve about 1500 jhuggis from DND to Akshardham says Shakeel member of the NGO Delhi Housing Rights Task Force R R Singla executive engineer of this circle DUSIB says the entire stretch has many jhuggis that are not recognised by the government “Pucca toilets cannot be constructed here Instead prefabricated toilets were set up by the engineering department An agency is responsible for maintaining the toilets and paying the caretaker Guddu has complained regarding his salary and I have forwarded it to the department concerned Action will be taken soon” he says A hard day’s work Speaking to caretakers at many toilet complexes suggests that while official apathy is one factor there is also a dire need for civic sense At one of the biggest toilet complexes in Kalkaji’s Bhoomiheen Camp the caretaker Sonu Kumar Jha says the area doesn’t look like it’s part of the capital Jha who has earlier worked with the sulabh shauchalaya in Chhattisgarh says “People defecate even where they are supposed to bathe” Jha joined the complex inaugurated on January 10 by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on February 22 And he’s already thinking of changing jobs He carries a plastic soft-drink bottle filled with washing powder and every time someone comes to use the toilet he thrusts it towards them so that they can wash their hands “Around 3000 people come here daily and many don’t want to pay If we insist they threaten us They drink alcohol and dump the liquor bottles inside latrines clogging the entire system They burn mugs with cigarettes and have broken more than 300 water taps I don’t understand why they do it” says Jha pointing to a room where a heap of broken plastic water taps lies in a corner Jha and his colleague have been given an almost barren room inside the complex for their stay In one corner are packets of washing powder called 555; beside it is a small gas cylinder and a few potatoes Sitting on a plywood bed — the only other comfortable thing in his room is a worn-out sofa — Jha says “This is our life I don’t even get proper sleep But something is better than nothing” DUSIB has given the contract to maintain the toilet to an NGO Social Skill Vision Society which in turn employs Jha NGO member Mukesh Singh says they bid Rs 431 per toilet seat apart from a one-time licence fee of Rs 15 lakh “I pay around Rs 66000 every month and then I have to pay the cleaners and caretakers In the last one-and-a-half months I have paid Rs 36000 as electricity charges — more than what it should be I am running into losses and have written to the DUSIB about it” says Singh adding that since January 10 he has changed 350 water taps Many pipes have been stolen from the premises “People even stole plants kept near the entrance” he says While toilets across the capital are being inaugurated with much fanfare they lack any upkeep whatsoever Executive Engineer P K Mittal of DUSIB under whose jurisdiction the Kalkaji complex falls under says “There is some complication as the previous NGO in-charge of the complex did not pay all their bills We are working on it and will sort out the issue soon” says Mittal The newly constructed toilet complex at Kalkaji Basti No way to live With toilets either defunct or too far people often have to get inventive Take for instance the 350 jhuggis in southwest Delhi’s East Kidwai Nagar where residents have erected a single makeshift toilet seat precariously balanced in the middle of a naala While each household has a toilet there is no sewage system Locals say refuse from the toilet goes directly into the naala right beside their homes The water has been stagnant for the last few months because of ongoing construction making it a perfect breeding ground for disease The jhuggis incidentally are located next to the building of the National Human Rights Commission at INA Mathura Das pradhan of the jhuggis says he has written to several authorities highlighting their deplorable living conditions One such letter purportedly written on March 1 talks about the foul smell due to chemicals being dumped into the naala by a construction company He says the hygiene levels are so low that people fall sick often The other major issue people say is of too few toilets for large populations At Cigarettewala Bagh in Model Town a 43-year-old woman died in July 2015 while crossing the road to use a mobile public toilet A year-and-a-half later a permanent toilet has come up in the area Women who spoke to The Indian Express said they find it safer compared to relieving themselves in the park but the wait here is far too long Roads running between jhuggis have been dug up to lay sewer lines but with work at a standstill for the last one month water has accumulated around households “Forget toilets we step out of our house and it seems like a drain” says Tri Mohan a shopkeeper Naturi Lal a resident says men usually go to the adjoining park as the eight toilet seats at the complex are not sufficient Pointing to the park he says the area where women used to defecate has now been converted into a nursery Half a kilometre away is another cluster of 100 jhuggis just ahead of Model Town Metro station Three toilets in the jhuggis inexplicably remain locked and residents especially the 125 women and girls use a private one-seater toilet built during the Commonwealth Games One of them is 65-year-old Maya Devi who has lived in the JJ cluster for the last 32 years Maya does not use the sole toilet as the waiting time is too long and instead goes in the open But she says she “cannot sit in that position for too long and has to go at least three times” Every night says she has rusk and a few cups of tea so she “doesn’t feel the urge” to defecate Arjun the pradhan of this jhuggi cluster claims that the AAP had promised a 40-seater toilet complex “but nothing has happened in the last two years” Area MLA Akhilesh Pati Tripathi blames the DDA for the delay and says the complex will soon come up on an elevated platform in the park“After DDA’s land commissioner approved the complex the horticulture department delayed it stating that toilets cannot be set up in a green-belt area The matter is now resolved and the toilets will be operational in the next 25 days” says Tripathi A matter of safety The burden of lack of toilets weighs more heavily on women who say they have to recce an area before they relieve themselves And going in the middle of the night they say is out of the question In Rohini’s Sector 26 two minor girls were raped last month when they went to relieve themselves in a vacant plot Nearby at Badli village in Rohini’s Sector 19 there’s just one toilet

broke the long hiatus of terrorist strikes in the USpost 9/11unfold on Indian TVas well as on CNN and BBCthe contrast with reactions to similar terrorist strikes at public places in India was indeed striking No blamegame among political leaders and agenciesno speculative reporting on the identity of the culprits Just poignant pictures of the injured being rushed to hospitalexpressions of sympathy for the families of those killed and injuredand a serious resolve to leave no stone unturned in bringing the perpetrators to book on the part of those in authority from the highest (the US president) to the lowest (the district attorney) in severely restrained tones The prompt and efficient response of emergency services like the police and ambulancesand even from the publicwas another aspect of the sharp contrast with the Indian scene But to be fair to ourselvesthe pressure of crowds and media persons and the general indiscipline make the task much more difficult One has been watching the reactions of our own politicianswho point fingers at each other over intelligence/policing failures after similar strikes The aggressive presence of media reporterswho immediately start speculating with their parallel investigations and sharing clues with their viewers rather than with government agenciesas well as onlookers invading the scene of the blastwhich leads to loss of valuable forensic evidenceare the other areas where we can learn from the reaction to the Boston blasts The US and Indiathe most powerful and the most populous democraciesboth face a very high degree of threat from jihadi terrorists Time and againthey have agreed to fight jointly and singly to free society from the menace of international terrorism But the results have been hugely different Both countries follow a federal system of governance In many areasthe Central and state governments in India enjoy far greater power than their US counterparts in dealing with internal security threats For instancethey can bring in the army in aid of the civil administration and deploy Central paramilitary forces in affected areas Yetour counter-terrorism strategy has failed abysmallythanks to the lack of the kind of political resolve witnessed in the US after 9/11 Our opposition leaders have been claimingbacked by sections of the mediathat while the US has positioned a foolproof internal security apparatus post-9/11 so tight that no terrorist group has dared to strike again on their soil in Indiathey continue to strike with impunity at crowded public placescausing a heavy loss of innocent lives The Boston bombings have punctured this myth As someone who has been at the forefront of the prolonged war against international terrorI can say with conviction that no country in the worldwith the exception perhaps of totalitarian regimescan claim that it does not face a threat from terror Moreoverit is extremely difficult to provide foolproof security cover at public places in free and democratic societies Our police forces and investigating agencies are seriously lacking in trainingorientation and equipmentparticularly forensic tools and technologyto handle such incidentswhich disturb the peace and leave the average citizen with a sense of insecurity Our unfriendly neighbourhood and the large presence of sleeper cells in our citieswaiting for directions to strike at times and places decided by their mastersdo make India a dangerous place to live in We have to face this reality Are wethereforeto conclude that by opting for the UK model of parliamentary democracy in preference to the US and French presidential formwe have faltered Thisin my viewis both a hasty and a simplistic conclusion The fact is that our political/ bureaucratic leadership has failed to ponder measures which deserve to be initiated to tackle the threats to our national security The security of the average citizen is not a priority for our netas How many of our national and state leaders have shown the courage to rise above electoral politics to bring in tough laws and provide teeth to our security agencies and police forces to meet the threats I cannot even count them on my
