La lutte contre la politique malhonnête? Renforcez votre pouvoir citoyen!

Au Paraguay, la phrase "J´ai un ami" est trop dite, et souvent accompagnée d´un geste et d´un hochement de tête. En général cela représente le signe qu´on connaît une personne qui est disposée à détourner la loi. Nous parlons alors de corruption, et le Paraguay connaît bien ce sujet: les Nations Unis ont signalé à une l´époque  le Paraguay comme un des pays le plus corrompu de l´Amérique Latine. Mais, maintenant ce n´est pas le cas,  grâce à l´action de trois citoyens qui on décidé que cela était suffisant.

A luta contra políticos desonestos como exemplo de cidadania

No Paraguai, a frase “Eu tenho um amigo” é proferida com excessiva frequência, normalmente acompanhada de uma piscadela e um aceno de cabeça.  Essa é, na maioria das vezes, uma indicação de que alguém com poder  irá se prontificar a burlar a lei.  A palavra  que define essa atitude chama-se corrupção, algo que  o Paraguai  já viu muito : a ONU já rotulou o  país como um dos  mais corruptos da América Latina.

¿Luchando contra la política entumecida?¡Fortalece tu músculo ciudadano!

En Paraguay, la frase "Tengo un amigo" se pronuncia con demasiada frecuencia, a menudo acompañado de un guiño y un asentimiento con la cabeza. En general, es un pista de que se conoce a  alguien que está dispuesto a infringir la ley. Estamos hablando de corrupción, y Paraguay ha visto mucho de ella: las Naciones Unidas, una vez marcaron al Paraguay como uno de los países más corruptos de América Latina. Pero pasa mucho menos estos días, gracias a tres ciudadanos que han decidido que ya es suficiente.

Rethinking Mental Health: Improving Comunity Wellbeing (Socio-economic Interface for violence Elimination).

nonprofit/ngo/citizen sector

 A dysfunctional family breeds future poor mental health and the disturbed mind originates from some form of violence. To improve community wellbeing we must end domestic violence. But domestic violence cannot be eradicated without placing men at the forefront of protecting women from violence since men are its main perpetrators.
