RUMEC EN CUARTO PODER

Rumec

La plataforma de negocios inteligentes conocida como Rumec se encuentra interesada en impulsar proyectos cooperativos en Chiapas enfocados al campo, el aprovechamiento de la producción del café y el mango para darles valor agregado y luego comercializarlo en el extranjero son dos de ellos, aprovechando la alianza estratégica que tienen con la Sociedad Cooperativa de Trabajadores Pascual, que elabora, envasa, distribuye y comercializa bebidas de frutas naturales, la más grande del país.

El campo reviste gran interés para ese organismo que ha puesto las miras en nuestra entidad, en donde existen muchas organizaciones productivas que lo único que requieren es un empujón, una mejor organización y el acompañamiento para impulsar los proyectos agroindustriales y dejar de ser solamente productores de materia prima. Hasta ahora el cooperativismo no ha sido respaldado por las instituciones gubernamentales cuando es un mecanismo que bien podría impulsar el desarrollo regional.

Miguel Angel Suárez, director de la plataforma Rumec, considera que la organización de los productores es fundamental y el cooperativismo una buena opción para hacer crecer proyectos de largo alcance, porque no solamente se trata de producir y dar valor agregado a las cosechas, sino lograr que tengan sus canales de comercialización tanto en los mercados nacionales como extranjeros.

En Chiapas los sectores productivos tienen una amplia posibilidad de crecimiento; en la actualidad desafortunadamente una parte importante de las cosechas se pierden, así ocurre con el mango y la palma de aceite, por la falta de una industria procesadora capaz de acopiar toda la producción. En el café y el cacao, la mayor parte se vende en grano en los mercados internacionales y nacionales, sin darle el valor agregado.

Por ello, llama la atención la propuesta hecha por Rumec durante un encuentro realizado hace algunos días en San Cristóbal de las Casas de organizarse, de fortalecer los vínculos cooperativos y se formen alianzas no solamente para producir sino ver la forma de crear negocios, de impulsar los empleos mediante la agroindustria al contarse con la materia prima.

En la actualidad lamentablemente las instituciones no destinan recursos para darle impulso a las sociedades cooperativas y las que existen se han desarrollado por sus propios méritos. El caso de la Pascual, se ha convertido en una alternativa para sus socios y su crecimiento ha sido importante y se ha posicionado en el mercado nacional; en la actualidad cuenta con dos plantas de producción, 57 sucursales en el país y mil 200 trabajadores, elaborando néctares, bebidas carbonatadas, agua purificada y lácteos.

El ejemplo de esa cooperativa podría ser retomado por las organizaciones chiapanecas para integrar alianzas para producir, procesar y comercializar; en la actualidad venden la materia prima y  los precios siempre afectan a los primeros integrantes de la cadena. El campo es fundamental y al estar en un proceso electoral, también se deben crear las condiciones para que las nuevas autoridades vean y busquen los mecanismos de apoyo al sector agrícola que ayuden a generar empleo y bienestar para las familias que viven de las actividades primarias.

 

En Arabia Saudita ya tomarán café chiapaneco

Una de las alternativas que se han generado para diversos productos en México es la exportación a diversos países, lo que pudiera generar una proyección positiva en la economía nacional.

México y Chiapas no son la excepción, considerando que se tienen varios productos destacables como el café, este aromático grano que se ha venido a posicionar a nivel mundial.

En esta ocasión el café chiapaneco pretende incursionar en Arabia Saudita, y con ello poder seguir proyectando este grano tan importante en Chiapas y en el País.

En este sentido, el grupo Rumec ha sido pieza fundamental para este objetivo, pues a través de una gira en México, se realizó una búsqueda de productos que pudieran interesar en países pertenecientes a los Emiratos Árabes, lo que ha generado gran expectativa.

En este sentido, se han mandado muestras de café chiapaneco a Riyahad, Arabia Saudita, para una cafetería que tiene sede en esta misma ciudad como en Dubai, Omán, como en varias localidades de Estados Unidos.

A través de Mutah Beales Shabbaz, reconocido cantante y dueño de esta cafetería en aquel país, buscan introducir el café mexicano a los Emiratos Árabes, creando así una nueva ruta de comercio para el país y claro para el estado de Chiapas.

Cabe señalar que se tiene una gran expectativa que permita seguir abriendo mercados en favor de los mexicanos y por ende de los chiapanecos. 

Cabe señalar que el grupo Rumec, estará presente en la feria de “Gulffoods”, con sede en Dubai, donde se pretende exhibir más de 200 productos mexicanos, en los que destaca la integración de por lo menos productos chiapanecos.

Quienes somos

Re-Unificacion Mundial En Construccion

RUMEC QUIENES SOMOS

Edit articleMiguel Angel Suarez  Director de Rumec

RUMEC, es una plataforma con capacidad de unificación universal y cooperación. Con propensión y negocios inteligentes, podemos asegurar que a los colaboradores se les remunere de manera justa y que estén laborando en condiciones adecuadas. RUMEC hace una pausa a mitad de la frase "Puede parecer extraordinario que nuestra visión sea ambiciosa, pero con la falta de derechos humanos básicos a nivel internacional, ponemos esta lucha en el corazón de nuestra ética, la forma en que realizamos nuestra plataforma”.

RUMEC es una plataforma única con enfoque social en las proximidades de la conexión con un rango de comunidades internacionales diversas y flexibles, con el fin de proporcionar una excelente alternativa de vida, así como nuestro objetivo de reinvertir nuestros recursos en las comunidades que necesitan nuestro apoyo nacional y global. Mantenemos y desarrollamos una red de colaboración flexible para nuestros integrantes.

Nuestro campo de trabajo y experiencia está dentro de los mercados de la construcción, el café, la comercialización de diversos productos y recursos naturales así como el proyecto de Intermediación Laboral México-Emiratos Árabes aunque con el acelerado crecimiento y la formación de nuevas alianzas constantemente a nivel nacional e internacional, nuestra experiencia se ampliará a través de resultados en un futuro cercano.

El Fundador y director de RUMEC el Sr. Miguel Suárez en colaboración con diversas personalidades alrededor del mundo como Gabriela Moscoso en México, Ryan Ward en el Reino Unido, Tomasso Bacca en Italia así como Colombia, Pakistan, Estados Unidos; quien ha trabajado en el negocio de la construcción, la mayor parte de su carrera en California, tiene 13 años de experiencia dentro de la industria. Él es originario de una importante ciudad portuaria, rica en recursos naturales como el Café, Mango, Moringa, Bambú, Jamaica, Chayote, Albahaca, Neem, Aguacate, Limón Persa, Piloncillo y demás productos naturales - que actualmente no están expuestos a nivel internacional, aunque con sus antecedentes familiares y personalidades productoras ya ha tenido la oportunidad de aprender todo lo que hay que saber sobre el potencial de esta región.

Tenemos la intención a través de nuestra plataforma y nuestras asociaciones en esta región, de poner en práctica la ética en nuestros proyectos y garantizar que los colaboradores de las fincas tengan condiciones adecuadas de trabajo y sean pagados de manera justa.

Dentro de los últimos años de exiguo, Miguel y todo el equipo RUMEC tienen desarrollado una estrategia que tiene el poder de unir a la gente y de cooperar para un mejor y más justo futuro. El equipo ha incorporado muchas horas y actos extenuantes de valor a la ambición de que nuestra misión será finalmente ayudar a las comunidades en México y en última instancia, en todo el mundo.

En RUMEC hemos desarrollado una sólida lista de socios y patrocinadores, por nombrar algunos están:

 Grupocobos ~ http://grupocobos.com.mx/ México

 Amtasociados ~ http://amtasociados.com/ México

 The cosy café ~ https://www.facebook.com/liive.cosycafe/?fref=ts United Kingdom

 kaixo. ~ http://www.kaixo.com.mx México

 Protonmail ~ https://protonmail.com/ Suiza

 El proyecto es ambicioso y por eso es sin duda interesante y fascinante.

El concepto de conectar a la gente para construir oportunidades de negocio y al mismo tiempo proporcionar una base de valores que cada parte del proyecto compartirá es muy intrigante.

El objetivo de RUMEC es conectar compañías con empresarios, gobernantes, agentes aduanales al mismo tiempo, para construir un ambiente armónico a través de valores compartidos y diálogo. Este entorno armónico impactara positivamente a la plataforma en el que se concluye sobre todos los aspectos a los colaboradores de la construcción y las fincas, inversionistas, gestores de proyectos, todos los que están involucrados.

En este mundo, las nuevas ideas y proyectos revitalizantes son crucialmente necesarios. Lo que hará formar el futuro de nuestra generación y de las generaciones por venir. Vamos a ser más cooperativos y menos competitivos, esta estrategia es absolutamente más productiva y efectiva. Si desea involucrarse, patrocinar, o concluir negocios con RUMEC y hay un objetivo con valores en común - Nos gustaría de todo corazón honrar su invitación.

Nuestra idea es ser un ejemplo de plataforma en la que se ayuda a otras empresas a conectarse con personas y recursos. RUMEC puede ser el comienzo de una nueva era, en la forma en la que combinamos los negocios junto con los valores compartidos por un futuro mejor.

RUMEC también cuenta con programa de educación. Creemos firmemente que la educación es la clave fundamental para mejorar las condiciones universalmente.

Tener un sistema educativo funcional e innovador puede ayudar al crecimiento de cualquier comunidad y elevarse en su mejor momento.

En las más recientes colaboraciones tenemos la de ProtonMail que es un servicio de correo electrónico basado en Suiza y desarrollado por científicos de la Organización Europea para la Investigación Nuclear y que promete absoluta seguridad, privacidad y encriptación en una forma sencilla, aún en su interacción con otras plataformas de correo basada en un modelo “de extremo a extremo” (end to end) entre usuarios.

La apertura de mercado con la comunidad China, Taiwanesa y Japonesa para la exportación de Aguacates de la empresa “aguacates Echartea Hnos.”

También el lanzamiento de un proyecto en forma de campaña de recaudamiento de fondos para mejorar las condiciones educativas en una Escuela Primaria en Huatusco, Veracruz; esta manera de trabajo se publica a través de Rumec obteniendo un impacto global con apoyo de fotos, videos, documentales y otras páginas de fondeo

RUMEC asistió en meses pasados a la primera visita de Marley Coffe en México, en donde se hablaron temas de alianza entre ambas compañías para la exportación de café mexicano por medio de las franquicias Marley, con la propuesta de aportar mejorías al campo en México considerando el movimiento consciente del café en Jamaica.

El equipo de RUMEC asistió al Foro internacional: La gran transformación urbana aeropuerto y ciudad con el objeto de conectar al pilar más importante de la obra, el Sr. Gerhard Steindorf con quien actualmente se mantiene una estrecha relación de comunicación para apoyar el sector de construcción en México, ya que en esta obra las constructoras que se están llevando las licitaciones más importantes son empresas extranjeras. La estrategia con el Aeropuerto es unificar un grupo fuerte de constructoras principalmente del sur del país para poder formar fuerzas y tener la capacidad de competencia junto a las grandes corporaciones que están construyendo en nuestro país cuando los mexicanos necesitan opciones laborales sin tener que inmigrar a países como Estados Unidos arriesgando su vida y dignidad.

Actualmente tenemos en línea nuestro sitio web www.rumecblog.com en donde se comprimieron los 5 pilares:

·        Agro alimentos

·        Construcción

·        Agencias y Servicios

·        Arte y Cultura

·        Altruismo y Patrocinios

La finalidad es la creación de un software que permita intercambiar productos y servicios desde un punto de venta virtual en donde el usuario podrá tener datos específicos de cada producto como el origen geográfico, aspectos culturales, sociales, así como las propiedades curativas y contenido vitamínico (en el caso de agro alimentos).

En este software se comprimen todos los pilares de RUMEC interconectados entre sí, ya que además de permitir enlazar personas de diferentes culturas pero con objetivos sociales en común haciendo negocios con impacto a la sociedad, se está construyendo un sistema en donde las personas puedan conectarse y comercializar sus productos evitando las grandes corporaciones y trasnacionales que dictan el precio del producto por falta de opciones de comercio justo y mismas que no permiten el progreso del campo.

Las relaciones entre RUMEC y el medio oriente tienen un acelerado crecimiento, recibiendo propuestas de apertura comercial con Turquía, quien junto con México son reconocidos como los epicentros comerciales en agro alimentos más importantes del mundo.

RUMEC ACTIVIST HISTORY

http://lavozdeanza.com/uncategorized/2010/05/14/may-day-celebrates-workers-at-de-anza/

May Day celebrates workers at De Anza 

KC Lazatin May 13, 2010 

The De Anza College club Students for Justice held a commemorative May Day event in the De Anza Main Quad on May 6. Guest speakers spoke on a variety of subjects, including the various injustices suffered by workers around the world, as well as the history of May Day itself.

May Day, or International Workers’ Day, is a celebration of workers worldwide.

While the earliest May Days were religious in nature, its modern roots stem from protests in the United States starting on May 1, 1884. The Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions declared a general strike in order to win an eight-hour work day, according to the Industrial Workers World handout passed out at the event.

Two years later in 1886, protestors in Chicago were shot at by police after a bomb was detonated by an unknown party, bringing about an angry and rapid rise of radical workers willing to stand up against unfair labor practices.

SFJ member Patrick Campbell emceed and helped plan the event.

“The solidarity between workers is what drove the event,” Campbell said.

The 4 Elements Hip Hop club kicked off and provided an intermission during the celebrations.

The speakers were the main attraction of the event. De Anza electrician, maintenance staff member and union leader Leo Contreras spoke about the health risks De Anza face staff when working graveyard shifts.

“Employees working the graveyard shift lose six to 10 years off their lives,” he said.

Dr. Ann Lopez, an instructor at San Jose City College, spoke about today’s capitalist society the increasing privatization of services and the transfer of the world’s wealth from the poor to the rich.

“Two hundred people in the U.S. have as much wealth as half of humanity … 800 people die every week in the U.S. due to a lack of health care,” Lopez said.

Brian Helmleyc and Steve Ongertz, members of the Industrial Workers of the World, spoke about the history of May Day. Blanche Monary, president of De Anza’s Association of Classified Employees, addressed budget cuts and ACE’s fight to reduce the amount of service positions cut at De Anza and Foothill Colleges.

Four members of the Rumec Company, an independent Latin-American construction company based in San Jose, spoke about discrimination against the poor. Other speakers, Luis Reyes and Craig D, spoke against the recently enacted immigration law in Arizona.

Also present were panels for activist clubs at De Anza, including the Leonard Peltier Support Group, Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán, the Muckrakers Guerilla Theatre Group, the Gay-Straight Alliance, Socialist Organizers and SFJ.

Students came and went throughout the two-hour event, many passed through the Main Quad without stopping, but Matthew Wrightsman was present for the entire celebration.

“I’m here to learn more about these issues and to support my friends,” said Wrightsman, president of the Working to Institute a Sustainable Environment on the 37th Parallel club. “There are plenty of opportunities to learn outside of class, and this is one of them.”

STILL THE SAME VISION

First of all I want to apologize for my bad words but, the person that interview me had a difficult time previous days before this video, I just wanted to take some pain out after hearing this storys of injustice and discrimination, I belive my words are less offended thant the way some Institusions and a racist system treat my people.


MY EXILE

.On April 18, Rumec was economically and morally destabilized with the deportation of Comrade Miguel Suarez to his native Mexico. With a successful construction business growing, assuming the leadership of the new labor movement and establishing a non-profit organization, Miguel Suarez was expelled from this country just moments before being exonerated of minor charges at traffic court in Santa Clara County.

Juan Ruiz, Malcolm Shabazz, Miguel Suarez
Juan Ruiz and Miguel Suarez stand on either side of Malcolm Shabazz, grandson of Malcolm X.

For over 10 years, Miguel has been at the forefront of the Mexican struggle, establishing strong bonds with the Black community and creating an environment for oppressed groups to establish business connections as well as maintaining a revolutionary agenda.

 

Upon his arrival in the U.S. at the age of 18 about 12 years ago, Miguel had ambitions of becoming an independent business owner. From a labor element of the construction industry, Comrade Miguel grew to become a business owner who employed friends, family members and local community individuals. His alternative form of doing business allowed for his growth to acquire resources that were once unclaimed by his community. His acquisition of the historical building Cine Mexico, a community theater, is a symbol of his constant growth as a successful business owner.

Rumec was economically and morally destabilized with the deportation of Comrade Miguel Suarez to his native Mexico.

Maintaining a business was not the ultimate goal for Comrade Miguel. His observation of the necessity of organizing and educating our labor force was the purpose he felt obligated to fulfill. Miguel took leadership of the new labor movement – assigning people various duties, organizing the community and orienting everyone to the oppressive circumstances we face. His representation of our people was driven from a sense of duty and obligation to a fair and just cause. Leading and educating our people was Miguel’s daily task.

The Olmec “heads,” huge stone sculptures created earlier than 900 B.C. depicting kings with African features, demonstrate the presence of Africans in Central America long before Columbus “discovered” America. This one is in Veracruz, Mexico. The mixture of Black and Brown blood began long before Spanish conquistadores brought enslaved Africans to Mexico.

Liberating our oppressed labor force from corporate neo-liberalism was a passion that Miguel Suarez shared not only with Mexican groups, but also with the Black community. Being a believer of Black and Brown unity, Comrade Miguel educated us about the common African roots and heritage we share. Native to the land of the Olmecs and inspired by Yanga, Miguel promoted merging Brown and Black community business to liberate ourselves from economic slavery. Through music, art, public speaking and business ownership, Miguel had the passion to reach out and employ both oppressed groups.

 

Miguel took leadership of the new labor movement – assigning people various duties, organizing the community and orienting everyone to the oppressive circumstances we face.

With an insatiable appetite to educate and assist our people, Comrade Miguel was in the process of establishing a non-profit organization. By providing architectural forums in Spanish and English, informing workers of current construction codes and educating construction laborers on their rights in the industry, Comrade Miguel was providing a service to our community. This very same service, which our government is not providing for the people, is the basis of the non-profit in the construction industry. His idea was to prepare our people and arm them with knowledge to fight the ignorance and poverty that floods our streets.

Gaspar Yanga, the 16th century enslaved African prince who rebelled against the Spanish, with his people, called the Yangans, established Yanga in Veracruz, the first free town in the Americas, where this monument stands.
Yanga, a towering figure in Mexican history, is said to have been a member of the royal family of Gabon when he was stolen and carried to Mexico. After leading a rebellion, freeing himself and other Africans, he and his followers established a maroon colony near Veracruz around 1570. Many battles with Spanish troops ensued; finally Yanga’s terms were accepted in 1618, giving his people the right to their land and independence. This monument stands in Yanga in Veracruz, the first free town in the Americas.

The absence of Miguel Suarez in the movement has been felt by all his comrades. He was always creating an environment where people could meet and voice their opinion with the benefit of others in mind. He is the type of individual who reads people and can suggest how you may contribute to a common cause. His ideas ranged from educating our youth, developing independent business owners, establishing our own bank, financing the building of our own homes and establishing our own educational institutions.

 

Miguel Suarez was a threat to the system imposed on us. His vision went so far as changing the criminal mindset of people to a revolutionary business oriented way of thinking. This plan would ultimately fight the system that focuses on enslaving the mind of our men and women.

The absence of Miguel Suarez in the movement has been felt by all his comrades.

As a respected businessman, leader of a movement and father, Miguel Suarez will be missed in the community. The struggle will continue with his plan carried out by myself, Juan Ruiz, and comrades in the company. Now working with him internationally, Rumec will continue to carry on his legacy and educate our community on forming independent businesses. At the same time, we will fight ceaselessly to return Comrade Miguel Suarez to the community and family who need him.

 

RUMEC MOVEMENT

On Dec. 31, 2011, at exactly 12 a.m., in the studio of Block Report Radio, hosted by JR Valrey on 94.1 KPFA, RUMEC was declared the new labor movement. For about 10 years before that night, RUMEC had operated as a construction company, which grew to a general construction agency incorporating all the branches of construction under one name.

RUMEC, Toro construction
In conjunction with Toro Construction, RUMEC Inc. develops retail spaces employing the local community involved in the new labor movement.

Always projecting a progressive social agenda, RUMEC aspired to represent an organized labor force and grow into a revolutionary movement through a construction economic base. RUMEC is an acronym for Revolutionary United Mexicans in Combat, fighting corporate oppression, ignorance and poverty through construction.

 

Through RUMEC, with construction, we may see how imperative it is to have an economic base to foment a political movement. Even though this is a grassroots association, funding is required to maintain people united. As we have seen from other progressive movements, when there is no economic base to unite the people, there will be great difficulty in maintaining the movement, and ultimately it will fail.

Knowing that in our community in the city of San Jose, seven out of 10 people work in the industry of construction, we identified the potential of educating our people through construction labor. Construction workers have families to sustain, and in this economic downfall, competition and necessity was about to get the best of our community.

The labor pool lacked organization, and we could see how workers were discrediting their own labor in order to close a deal with a client and take the job from another hungry individual. We discovered the divide-and-conquer techniques which our people were practicing. This is where we identified the importance of establishing set rates for labor without discrediting effort and quality of work. RUMEC was the salvation for all the competition that was dividing us from one another, since construction was our specialty for economic survival.

Knowing that in our community in the city of San Jose, seven out of 10 people work in the industry of construction, we identified the potential of educating our people through construction labor.

Education and the acquisition of economic stability was our goal for our labor force. Through education we have changed the perspective our Mexican workers have of the industry. The outside forces behind the scene, pulling the strings that make us behave in such a manner where we stay divided, ignorant and poor, had to be broken. Education has been the base for changing the way our workers behave; we have set the prototype of the new consciously aware construction worker.

In our constitution, you may find the progressive way workers ought to think, dress, present themselves and project a positive work ethic. It is imperative for our people to know that we own the labor force; we have to think this way in order for others not to oppress us and steal our efforts in vain. Education has paved the way for our non-profit establishment which is soon to come. By educating and providing something for our people that this government is not providing, we have the opportunity to become established as a non-profit organization.

In our headquarters, we began providing architectural workshops, informative construction code and laws workshops, and educational revolutionary seminars. These workshops enable us to give purpose to all those individuals in unemployment. While they are waiting to get employed, our people are learning to read architectural plans and applying updated construction codes.

Education and the acquisition of economic stability was our goal for our labor force.

Construction workers searching for temporary employment in the parking lots of Home Depot can now prepare themselves and organize with set labor rates and a waiting list for work. People no longer have to search for jobs because we provide the labor for those on a waiting list while they are getting educated in our construction workshops. This enables us to maintain a non-profit status and make a living of providing a social service.

Inspired by Malcolm X, who organized the Black community through Muslim Mosque Inc. and The Organization of Afro-American Unity, RUMEC is establishing organization through construction inspired by our Muslim affiliates. We hold the belief of Malcolm X that you “leave your religion at the door” in a time of gathering for a greater cause. This is to say, that we are all-inclusive in our movement, regardless of any religious affiliation. We have great respect for the discipline and organization behind a religion, however.

RUMEC aspires to unify our people in the same manner that religion does, but without a specific religious affinity. Even though we are building a mosque in the city of Oakland with the grandson of Malcolm X, Malcom Shabazz, our religious stand is independent. No matter what religion you may advocate, as long as it is oriented to the benefit of the people, then we are in favor of it. In addition, our plans for a mosque will incorporate education for our children, a shelter for battered women and an epicenter for justice advocacy, which will be objective in all manners possible.

RUMEC has always aspired to represent a unified group of educated people through construction. On a daily basis, we operate as a business impregnating in our ethic our Mexican role models who developed an ideology through the industry of construction. Inspired by the idea of Federico Sanchez Fogarty, we have launched countless events designed to expand the public’s awareness of RUMEC as a cultural symbol in construction.

Inspired by Malcolm X, who organized the Black community through Muslim Mosque Inc. and The Organization of Afro-American Unity, RUMEC is establishing organization through construction inspired by our Muslim affiliates.

Through our written contributions to journals and newspapers, we allude to the ideological aspect embedded in our culture. Our architects have sought out to represent the new reality of the post-economic downfall of California through RUMEC. This clear and concise representation surpasses the architecture of Halliburton, which has only paved a history of crumbling a country to pieces and running a war only to reconstruct the infrastructure.

RUMEC is the total opposite of that; we represent the architecture in our culture. From the mother civilization of Olmec architects, we have found that construction is a cultural aspect of our roots. Rather than crumbling another culture to pieces, we aspire to provide pro-bono work for the people of Afghanistan. In collaboration with Samshia Razaqi of Omeid International, we have plans to work with Immortal Technique, building a program in the benefit of the people affected by the American invasion. Due to our progressive agenda, we can furnish construction projects such as these.

Inspired by the idea of Federico Sanchez Fogarty, we have launched countless events designed to expand the public’s awareness of RUMEC as a cultural symbol in construction.

Through our work plan, we can complete even the smallest of jobs which range from bathroom remodels to erecting a commercial building. Currently, we are building a commercial building along with Toro Construction of San Jose. This company is a strong supporter of the conscious labor movement behind RUMEC. Toro Construction has been a victim of institutional racism in the construction industry since he is known to employ members of his local community. It is common that when a minority group of people projects financial unity, they are brought down by greater discriminatory forces.

The most recent project RUMEC has embarked on is the historical theater Cine Mexico on 25th Street and Santa Clara Avenue. With a complete renovation, Cine Mexico will operate as the cultural epicenter for the Mexican community, working in conjunction with all other progressive minority ethnic groups. With this construction project, RUMEC will develop business opportunities and educational programs through art and entertainment.

In addition, RUMEC has joined forces with Willie Ratcliff of Liberty Builders to develop construction projects in the near future. This will unify labor forces in the Bay Area, at the same time maintaining a progressive revolutionary conscious.

Overall, RUMEC has been at the forefront of the new labor movement. We would like to unify our people through construction, religion, art, music and education. We seek the liberation from outside forces that foment ignorance, oppression and poverty. We aspire to escalate into an established position of recognition and respect as an independent, all inclusive institution that represents our striving people.

ABOUT US

CONSTRUCT EQUALITY

RUMEC PROJECT * Edits by the Ambassador Of Rumec. Ryan Ward

 

Miguel Suarez discusses the resurrection of his business & movement Rumec, a platform with the capacity for universal unity and cooperation. With propensity & intelligent business deals, we can ensure workers are getting paid fairly and are working in suitable conditions. Miguel pauses mid-sentence “It may seem extraordinary that our vision is ambitious, though with a lack of basic human rights internationally, we put their struggle at the heart of our ethics, how we conduct our business.”

 

Our core values and mission, can be observed at our 16 years of history.

 

Rumec is a unique business and civil project in the vicinity of connecting with a range of diverse , flexible , international communities in order to provide excellent business opportunities as well as our objective to reinvest our finances into the communities who need our financial &support. We maintain & develop a flexible working environment for our partners.

 

Our field of work and expertise is within the construction & coffee markets, although with accelerated growth and forming new partnerships consistently, our expertise will expand through many proficiency’s in the near future.

 

Rumec founder Mr.Miguel Suarez who has worked in the construction business, for the majority of his career in California, has 13 years of fortunate experience within the industry. He’s originally from Veracruz ( Heroica ) which is a major port city and municipality on the Gulf of Mexico, Which is rich for its coffee farms – that are currently unexposed internationally, Though with his family background – he has had the opportunity to learn everything there is to know about the potential of the coffee from this region. We intend through our platform and our associations in this region , we can implement our ethics into our projects and ensure the workers on the farms have suitable working conditions & being paid fairly.  

 

Within the last exiguous amount of years, Miguel & the entire Rumec team have developed a project which carries the power to unite the people and to cooperate for a better and more just future. The team have incorporated long hours and strenuous acts of valor in ambition that our mission will eventually help communities in Mexico and ultimately also around the world.

 

At Rumec we have developed a strong list of partners and sponsors on its side, To name a few :

The project is ambitious and for that is surely interesting and fascinating.

 

The concept of connecting people to construct business opportunities and at the same time providing a base of values that every part of the project would share is very intriguing.

 

Rumec’s aim is to connect companies with employers, at the same time to construct a harmonic environment through shared values & dialogue. This harmonic environment would positively affect the business in which we conclude on all aspects, to the workers on the construction sites and the farms, Investors, Project Managers, all who are involved.

 

In this world new ideas are crucially needed and new revitalizing projects, which will shape the future of our generation and generations to come. We will become more cooperative and less competitive, this strategy is absolutely more productive and effective. If you would like to get involved, sponsor, conclude business with Rumec and there is a common goal, values – We would whole heartedly honor an invitation.

 

In many top companies around the world (starting with Toyota) the workers have a core and recognized role. In the sense that worker’s thoughts and ideas are taken into consideration and evaluated by the managers and coordinators. This type of company’s managing approach is used in order to provide a good work environment for everyone. So everyone would cooperate at their working potential for the company’s success and productivity.

 

An abounding amount of management engineers strongly believe that employees can provide optimal indication, feedback to aid & improve in the company’s efficiency. So managers and coordinators would be able to listen to feedback and would consider those as factors that could help the company’s improvement.

 

Every section of a company or business can contribute harmonically to its success and prosperity.

 

Our idea is to be an example of a platform in which helps other companies connect with people & resources. Rumec can be the beginning of a new era , in the way in which we unite businesses together with shared values for a better future.

 

Rumec also has an education program and project. We believe strongly that education is the fundamental key to improve conditions universally, best chance for many to escape poverty. As Malcolm X stated “ Education is the passport to the future.”. Each generation if it is provided with an quality education can generate new ideas and new projects that can eventually lead the communities to a better and stronger future.

 

Having a functional and innovative educational system can help any community grow and rise at its best.

 

Our core values lays the groundwork of the path in which we are on, the inequalities , injustices around the globe is what pushes us along, and our destination is to a more educated & equal society where justice prevails ignorance & corruption.  

 

Justice.Equality.Honestly.Solidarity.

 

Stay in touch with our progress through our platform at (contact@rumec.net) which is under construction temporary, will give you an idea of our projects and it will provide you with essential information about Rumecs construction business experience.

 

Rumec construct equality. A movement for people guided by unity and cooperation.

WE CARE ABOUT EDUCATION

Importance and fundamental role of education in young children life and future.

Good Education: a way to develop and improve our society and communities.  

·         A good Education has to be provide to everybody if we want that everybody participates fairly to community life

·         Education as Way to change

·         Education as freedom tool

·         Education as a mind opener and critical thinking grower

·         Education as a chance for everybody to discover their talents and given skills to put in use  for a better future

·         Good education for everybody as people right and for social justice.

Education systems development made possible for most rich countries to grow and improve standards of life in the past decades.

Once a good basic level of education was provided to most of the population the society made big steps in different fields. More people had good education so more people were able to participate functionally and creatively to society improvements: in science, in social issues, in arts, in technology and in all the cultural aspect of a modern society.

So the step of providing the people with a good level of education is fundamental to make possible any society to grow, move and improve.

 

One big reason why less developed countries around the world struggle to grow and get better is the difficulty on creating and homogeneous and largely shared education system which should provide good education to future generations.

 

Of course in our world most things in a big scale depend on money to be done.

But even without big money resources communities could reach a good level of education.

How can this be achieved?

Well it’s fundamental to have well prepared and open mind teachers or tutors who can guide and manage an education transformation.

 

This process can start, like many things from a small scale and from limited resources, but it’s very important that the people who are in possess of information and knowledge to teach, shares very fundamental values and perceive the way through which the goal would be reached.

 

The values that could be shared by teachers are global values that are always been present in human beings like: equality, respect for others, open mind, altruism, and faith in a better future.

Teachers from more or less developed countries could share these ideas.

Teachers should collaborate and share information. Some teachers would have more knowledge on some academic and technical field and others would have more information about day to day life and perception of reality.

So qualitatively there’s no difference. All information can be important regarding from which field of knowledge come from. “Western” countries usually tend to underestimate some type of knowledge (like harmony with nature and comprehension of life in a holistic way) more present and considered in other countries. On another side “not western” countries are usually less in possess of scientific and technological understanding than more “developed” countries.

 

So a couple of important points to consider on education developing process are:

 

1.       Not underestimate any type of knowledge or concept.

2.       Share openly information and keeping an open mind.

 

Once teachers who shares values, knowledge and goals will be put in condition to work with kids and young adults they will provide the right learning environment for the students to bloom.

Having new generations on a large scale exposed to good education even in developing countries will bring little by little future changes to society.

 

What Rumec can do in the current time is to provide just useful and not controlled information for the public.

Rumec is building its website where there will be an education section and its related academic information database.

Also Rumec will share ideas, teaching methods and approaches for teachers who feel the same on positive values mentioned previously.     

 

****** this part is a dream********

Rumec also will try in the future to be more active on the field.

Starting with Mexico Rumec will provide guiding tutors for teachers in public school who are interested to listen to some ideas and methods to implement and stimulate school programs and school activities for local communities. 

 

A better education is possible. It might be not easy to start with this project at the beginning, considering that many poor communities around the world don’t have good infrastructure, materials or resources. But a good shared goal and positive values is a good base to start with.

And we should consider that it’s not money that makes the world go around but it’s people, their energy, their passions and their good will. People, human beings, conscious beings that share and cooperate is the key for a better future.

 

So have faith in cooperation and in a better future.

 

 

Tommaso Bacca.

RUMEC Y LA ENERGIA SUSTENTABLE

ENERGIA PARA TODOS

ENERGIA SUSTENTABLE A ESCENA

En este siglo XXI, signado por un crisol de nuevas tecnologías que apenas hace medio siglo parecían sueños, en algunos casos irrealizables, hoy son pues realidades materiales y aplicables en un sinnúmero de ámbitos. Ciencia e investigación, medicina y telecomunicaciones son solo algunos de los rubros donde la aplicación de estas nuevas tecnologías de última generación están produciendo transformaciones radicales en la forma en que dichos rubros pueden y podrán ser aplicados.

Por ejemplo según las anotaciones del alemán Udo Gollub y de Alejandro Guzmán Stein, hechas durante la cumbre de la Universidad de la Singularidad llevada a cabo en Messe Berlín, Alemania en abril del 2016, para el 2018 aparecerán al alcance de los consumidores los primeros autos autónomos. Para 2020, toda la industria automotriz estará en aprietos. ¿Quién querrá tener auto si en tu teléfono podrás tener una variedad de modelos listos para llevarte desde donde estés hasta tu destino? Por supuesto la gran mayoría de las compañías automotrices. “Las empresas automotrices tradicionales usan el enfoque evolutivo y solo hacen un mejor auto mientras las compañías tecnológicas (Tesla, Google, Apple) tienen el enfoque revolucionario y fabrican computadoras con ruedas. Hablé con ingenieros de VW y Audi y están completamente aterrados por Tesla.”

¿Por qué empezar un artículo sobre energía sustentable hablando de nuevas tecnologías? Sencillo, las nuevas tecnologías son el presente y el futuro, así mismo debe serlo la energía sustentable. Y es que en este mundo devastado por la contaminación, amenazado por las guerras, la predicción sombría de la escasez de recursos naturales y hambre, necesitamos comenzar a cambiar el paradigma de la energía, hoy, o mañana será muy tarde.

¿Pero qué es la energía sustentable?

Bien, como energía sustentable se conoce a la energía que puede obtenerse de fuentes naturales, que al menos, virtualmente, son inagotables, por un lado, están las que contienen una inmensa cantidad de energía, y por el otro, las que son capaces de regenerarse por medios naturales, la energía sustentable es también aquella que, a diferencia de la tradicional, costosa y contaminante puede obtenerse de fuentes "renovables" como el sol, el aire o el agua de lluvia. ¡Genial! ¿No?

Por ejemplo, está la energía solar, nuestro Sol envía a la tierra 4 mil veces más energía de la que en realidad consumimos cada año. ¿Cómo no aprovecharla por todos los medios posibles? Teniendo en cuenta que esta fuente además de ser gratuita es limpia e inagotable- A su vez puede librarnos de tener que depender de otras alternativas poco seguras que son contaminantes y justo, agotables.

Entre otras energías sustentables también tenemos[i], la Eólica que se obtiene de la fuerza del viento; Hidráulica basada en el aprovechamiento de la caída de agua desde cierta altura que puede ser convertida en energía eléctrica. Mareomotriz, aprovechamiento de las mareas, Geotérmica, proveniente del calor interno de la tierra, y la Undimotriz que se refiere a la obtención de la energía potencial y cinética de las olas para producir electricidad.

Vaya que hay energía de sobra para mover el mundo, luego entonces por qué no ha podido cambiar el paradigma de la energía, que intereses hay para conservar esta forma en la que producimos la fuerza que mueve al mundo a partir de energías que polucionan y devastan al planeta en el que vivimos, el único hasta ahora en el que hemos podido hacer nuestra vida. Sin embargo es ahora el momento de hacer un cambio definitivo para ayudar al planeta a sanar y restituirse haciendo nuestra vida aquí más llevadera y en armonía con la naturaleza. RUMEC quiere hacerlo y para ello busca conectar con gente emprendedora que quiera desarrollar sus ideas en el campo de la energía sustentable para poner en la orden del día los proyectos que nos beneficien y beneficien a nuestro planeta.

Tal es el caso Lázaro Navas, ingeniero chiapaneco cuyo trabajo de ingeniería se extiende a lo largo de más de 20 años. El como muchos y muchas otras ha entregado su vida a la búsqueda de una energía no contaminante que pueda sustentarse sola y que esta pueda ser accesible para las grandes mayorías. El ingeniero Navas ha desarrollado pues, un motor generador de corriente alterna que no contamina y que trabaja a base de “fricción” el cual levanta una potencia de 800 watts de corriente alterna en todo terreno y contra toda inclemencia climática pensado en última instancia para ayudar a la humanidad. Este invento podría sustituir en palabras de su creador a la forma en la que se produce la energía, hasta ahora incluso podría sustituir a otro tipo de energías sustentables como los paneles solares. Mover un carro sin gasolina, luz en casa a partir de este invento son solo algunas de las ventajas que el ingeniero Navas promete con él.

Como hemos podido ver de manera general, hay un mar de posibilidades para la energía sustentable, pero aún más... hay más de un inventor que como el ingeniero Navas ha apostado su vida y su trabajo para aportar al mundo una opción diferente, una oportunidad para generar energía sin estar en conflicto con la naturaleza. Uno de los casos más emblemáticos de este tipo de inventos es el que se retrata en el documental “The bealivers: Cold Fussion” http://coldfusionnow.org/the-believers-the-movie/ que centra su historia en el invento a base de fusión fría, que permitiría contar con una fuente de energía atómica económica e inagotable en lugar de la fisión que se utiliza en los actuales reactores nucleares. Estos bealievers son Stanley Pons y Martin Fleischmann quienes en unos cuantos días después de dar a conocer su invento en 1989 saltaron a la portada de la revista Time para después ser relegados por su invención, la cual fue desacreditada y considerada como un fraude pseudocientífico por una amplia comunidad científica. El invento de estos bealivers desafió las leyes de la física, así lo hace en palabras del ingeniero Navas su invento generador de energía. Es necesario creer en que otro mundo es posible, para ello es necesario apoyar las ideas que desafían los paradigmas que pueblan la vida cotidiana. RUMEC quiere hacerlo.

En este sentido el equipo de RUMEC, vía Tomasso Bacca, le hizo algunas preguntas al ingeniero Navas para informar a nuestra comunidad de este invento que podría cambiar la forma en la que generamos nuestra energia.

1.        What is the purpose of this invention?

2.        What are the basic physic principles involved (explained in terms understandable by a general non scientific public)?

Mentioning maybe also some mathematics involved in the designing of the project.

3.        Are the technical characteristics and plan going to be share to the public?

Meaning is this project a no profit type of project or people would have to pay in order to know how to build this machine? Or in order to purchase one?

4.        What would the inventor like to achieve with this invention?

5.        Does the inventor want to be recognized in some aspect? Does he want to receive financial benefits from it?

6.        How much information about technical details of the invention is the inventor willing to share in order for other scientist to be able to analyze and understand the functioning of it?

Este artículo seguirá desarrollándose conforme a la investigación y visitas de ingenieros extranjeros para comparar con inventos similares en italia y demas paises. RUMEC está trabajando en este momento en unir conocimientos globales.

[i] En otra entrega abordaremos en profundidad los detalles y aplicaciones de estas energías. 

RUMEC & RAMBUTAN

The name rambutan is an Indonesian word that means "hairy". The fruit does look hairy. The fruit is green in color when not yet ripe. Once ripe the outside of the fruit turns red. The flesh on the inside of the rambutan is white in color.Rambutan is native to Indonesia and Malaysia. Rambutan trees grow naturally in Thailand, Mexico, Vietnam, the Philippines and elsewhere in Southeast Asia.

Se comercializara rambután a los Emiratos Árabes Marzo 14 Por: Ramón García / Cp COMPARTIR

https://www.elsoldemexico.com.mx/republica/615333-exportaran-rambutan-de-chiapas-al-medio-oriente

Con la exportación de 40 toneladas de rambután a Medio Oriente, productores de la región comercializarán la fruta exótica a Emiratos Árabes, la expectativa es alta porque en esos países la economía y la moneda son de un alto valor, aunque reconocen que se trata de un esfuerzo propio porque aún no existe ayuda que del Gobierno Federal y Estatal.

El responsable de vinculación comercial, Miguel Ángel Suárez, informó que el rambután del Soconusco por su calidad y sabor tiene gran demanda en los mercados internacionales, por ello a partir de esta temporada se iniciará con la exportación de unas 40 toneladas hacia Emiratos Árabes y el producto llegará a Dubai.

En ese sentido, señaló que Dubai se ha convertido en uno de los países con una economía pujante y con una gran demanda de productos agrícolas, por lo que la fruta del Soconusco tiene grandes ventajas para ser comercializada en los países árabes, además la época de cosecha de la región no concuerda con la de Tailandia, principal exportador de rambután a esta parte del mundo.

 

Señaló que México cuenta con la capacidad de surtir los mercados del mundo, pues de mayo a noviembre en el Soconusco se cosecha alrededor de 20 toneladas diarias, pero ahora los productores tienen problemas para colocar sus productos porque no hay apoyo de las autoridades.

Mencionó que se espera que a partir de mayo se inicie con la comercialización de aproximadamente 40 toneladas de fruta vía aérea hasta Dubai, por la poca vida de anaquel que tiene el producto y con base a la aceptación que tenga se estudiarán las estrategias para acrecentar la exportación a los Emiratos Árabes.

“La ventaja de la exportación a Dubai es que ellos son los que demandaron el producto mexicano y además ya conocen la fruta, por lo que la calidad y sabor del rambután del Soconusco serán la llaves para posicionarlo, pero sobre todo generar mayores divisas para los productores y demás personas que viven de esta actividad”, aseveró.

 

Señalaron que en promedio el precio de kilogramo de rambután en la región es de 15 pesos, mientras que en otros países es alto, incluso señalaron que en Dubai alcanza un precio de hasta 470 pesos el kilogramo, por lo que la meta es posicionar el producto del Soconusco en este país, y tener mejores ingresos económicos.

RUMEC CONSTRUCCION

Mejorando las condiciones laborales

 

ENCUENTRO DE DOS ESTILOS DE CONSTRUCCIÓN

 

El cemento como estereotipo impuesto en México y método monopolizado, dio inicio en 1906 con la apertura de plantas cementeras en el estado de Hidalgo, en 1909 duplica su capacidad de producción hasta alcanzar las 66 mil toneladas anuales. La revolución mexicana provoca la suspensión, y retoma la producción en 1920. Hasta el día de hoy México es el productor de cemento más grande de Latinoamérica.

En países como Japón, Emiratos árabes y Europa, desde hace años se aplican diversas maneras de construcción tales como la madera y estructuras metálicas minimizando el uso de cemento, lo cual deja a México estancado en estilos atrasados conforme a las tendencias de construcción a nivel global.

La economía de cada país no es impedimento absoluto para satisfacer necesidades de construcción ya que el método puede ser implementado con materiales de la región y acoplado a la naturaleza del entorno sin dejar atrás la modernidad y la tecnología avanzada en la industria de la construcción. Cabe mencionar que este sistema puede implementarse desde módulos precarios hasta avanzados.

EL arquitecto José Eduardo Molina y el Director y fundador de RUMEC Miguel A. Suarez, promueven un Sistema Alternativo de Construcción (SAC) con tendencias a sustentabilidad y uso de ecotecnias. El primero basado en la construcción experimental y ecotecnias, el segundo en derechos laborales y métodos internacionales de construcción desde hace mas de una década http://sfbayview.com/2013/rumec-fighting-corporate-oppression-ignorance-and-poverty-through-construction/

El SAC tiene como base materiales y métodos que se acoplan al contexto natural haciendo funcionar elementos inertes y la misma naturaleza endémica, con materiales básicos que utilizaba la población nativa salvaguardando el legado natural y conocimiento ancestral de técnicas constructivas alternativas que el mismo ecosistema nos provee para intervenir de manera amigable con el entorno.

La propuesta de materiales

Endémicos: tipos de suelo, morfología topográfica, recubrimientos y entramados orgánicos

Prefabricados: cemento, acero

Artesanales: metal, maderas, textiles, escultura

Reciclados: desechos inorgánicos (reutilización de basura como unificador social)

Autoconstrucción experimental: implementación de técnicas y creación de ideas.

Por medio del sistema integral de incorporación de mano de obra, se busca aminorar esfuerzos innecesarios en los obreros para la realización de estructuras edificables sólidas y resistentes con el uso de las matemáticas y cálculos, dando empleo a obreros y mano de obra intelectual como arquitectos, ingenieros de suelo, ingenieros de cálculo, ingenieros químicos, etc. de la región en donde se implemente el sistema SAC.

Los resultados de implementar el SAC van desde llevar vivienda a comunidades de bajos recursos hasta construir edificios que nos coloquen como mano de obra calificada e infraestructura en el esquema mundial.

En el ejemplo de Inglaterra, podemos observar que los métodos de construcción alternativos han reemplazado al cemento anqué este haya tenido sus orígenes en dicho país.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Fsezel6YyJo

Las personas no usan este sistema de construcción por desconocimiento, esto provocado por las transnacionales del cemento, mismas que han obstaculizado sistemas alternativos y han creado los monopolios que abastecen todos los materiales convencionales de construcción.

Desde el punto de vista en ingeniería civil, el uso de las estructuras metálicas ha incrementado y está siendo más aceptada por los ingenieros civiles, esto debido a la rapides de su edificación. Utilizado los softwares actuales los cálculos se hacen más refinados, por lo cual las estructuras metálicas pueden tener mayor provecho del material y desempeño estructural con la utilización de sistemas alternativos de construcción; esto dicho por el ingeniero civil Nectar Augusto Montesinos Alvarado, encargado de la construcción del aeropuerto de la Ciudad de Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas.

El SAC mejora las condiciones laborales ya que no es aplicable el uso innecesario de fuerza, resguardando la salud física de los empleados y al mismo tiempo generar una sinergia con contratistas locales lo cual reduce costos para el beneficiado.

Como conclusión SAC mejora las prácticas laborales y lleva construcción digna a los lugares más marginados, al mismo tiempo podemos satisfacer las necesidades de edificación de una metrópoli.

RUMEC esta trabajando con compañías desde Tijuana hasta Chiapas, mismas que comparten el Sistema de Construcción Alternativa (SAC).

RUMEC AND 2008 USA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

Cynthia McKinney wins hearts and minds on California tour

May 9, 2013
 

by The People’s Minister of Information JR

Cynthia McKinney’s fundraiser tour for the SF Bay View was a huge success up and down California, hitting San Diego, Los Angeles, Oakland and Santa Rosa. The tour, which was titled “Latin America, Africa, and Obama,” coincided with the release of McKinney’s second book, “Ain’t Nothing Like Freedom,” an autobiography about her years as a six-term Congress member from Georgia.

Cynthia McKinney Tour Cynthia sits smiling 042413 Laney by Darnisha Wright
Cynthia McKinney, like Paul Robeson, has been largely silenced by the powers that be. Though she is invited to speak all over the world, here at home in the U.S., her truth telling is considered too dangerous and she is rarely quoted or heard in the mainstream media. With her California tour – and her upcoming East Coast tour – she is “breaking the blockade.” Here she is at Laney College on April 24. – Photo: Darnisha Wright
Hundreds of people came out to hear the internationally known peace activist speak about attending the funeral of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and the U.S. refusing to acknowledge the results of the most recent election, which brought Maduro, Chavez’ vice president to power as the newly elected president of the leading Bolivarian Revolutionary nation.

 

McKinney talked extensively about Obama’s domestic policies including his willingness to cut social security and his foreign policies, including the U.S. military’s use of drones and depleted uranium ammunition in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Somalia and their effect on the population of these nations.

McKinney described the work of the late great Muammar Qaddafi, who was assassinated by U.S. and NATO backed forces in 2011, and the revolutionary government he created, called the Libyan Jamahariya. Most people listening in the audience had heard very little about the accomplishments of the bloodless Libyan revolution in 1969 that transformed Africa’s poorest occupants and by 2011 made them the richest on the continent per capita due to his nationalization of the nation’s oil wealth.

Due to Cynthia McKinney being harassed and searched at the Atlanta airport for 45 minutes, she was over an hour late to her speaking engagement at the WorldBeat Cultural Center in San Diego to kick off the tour. About 40-50 people waited to hear her talk about politics and to get both of her books. Her first book, “The Illegal War in Libya,” released last fall, sold out after only the second event. Shout out to Makeda of the WorldBeat and Mario of One Hundred Strong for helping to organize this event.

On Cynthia’s second and third stops, in Ingelwood and Los Angeles, she cordially facilitated political discussions, opening up for questions after about 20 minutes of speaking. She talked about knowing how to speak French, but acknowleged that today, Spanish is the language of the revolution, alluding to the recent revolutionary actions of Ecuador, Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia and other countries.

Cynthia McKinney Tour w Panthers, JR at Kaos Network, LA 042313 by JR
A high point of Cynthia McKinney’s California tour came on April 23 at the Kaos Network on Leimert Boulevard in Los Angeles when Kathleen Cleaver came with the Freeman brothers, Ronald and Elder. They are standing on either side of Kathleen, Elder Freeman between Kathleen and Cynthia. Kathleen had come to California to raise money for Elder Freeman to travel to Cuba for cancer treatment, and her mission was accomplished. With the Panthers and KPFK broadcaster Dedan Kimathi, along with Minister of Information JR, host and organizer of the tour, it was a gathering of veterans of the struggle. – Photo: Minister of Information JR
She also told the crowd that she was working on her Ph.D. at Antioch University and that her dissertation is on Hugo Chavez and the Bolivarian Revolution in Latin America.

 

At Chuco’s Justice Center in Inglewood, Black Panther legends the Freeman Brothers and Kathleen Cleaver were in the audience supporting the freedom fighting peace activist. At Ben Caldwell’s Kaos Network, a whole ‘nother group of activists came out to be informed. Shout out to Akua Agusi and Billion of the Ujima Council for helping to organize the LA wing of the tour.

While in Los Angeles, Cynthia was interviewed in the early morning on April 22 by Dominique DiPrima of Stevie Wonder’s KJLH radio station. She also was interviewed by Eric Mann of KPFK about her political views.

On her fourth stop, Oakland came out in numbers to Laney College to hear the words of Cynthia McKinney in an event organized by the Laney College Black Student Union. The hundred plus seat lecture hall was almost filled to capacity with people eager to listen to her presentation. Bay View publisher Willie Ratcliff introduced Cynthia. Black Panthers Arthur League and Elder and Ronald Freeman were also in the house right alongside former San Quentin 6 member Johnny Spain, who participated in the discussion, adding stats about mass incarceration.

The last stop on the tour was Santa Rosa’s Arlene Francis Center, which was attended by approximately 70 people. McKinney was brought to Santa Rosa by the San Jose-based Mexican activist construction firm Rumec.

Cynthia McKinney Tour Cynthia, Brianna Brooks Santa Rosa 042513 by JR
After Brianna Brooks, 20, told Cynthia McKinney prior to the event in the beautiful Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa that she is an inspiration, Cynthia invited her to take the mic and share a few words. Then Cynthia said that when she retires, Brianna should be ready to take her place. – Photo: Minister of Information JR
At this event, Cynthia brought Brianna Brooks, a 20-year-old Black Latina, on stage; she had told Cynthia earlier that she was inspired by her work. Though she said she gets nervous in front of crowds, Cynthia urged her to share a few words. Then Cynthia announced that when her time is up, the young sista will be the next in line to politically deal with people’s concerns.

 

Ben Saari of KTWF radio was in the audience recording the audio and community TV broadcaster Elaine Holtz had a film crew there videotaping. A number of people from Sonoma helped organize this event including Carole Hyams, Peter Phillips and Morris Turner.

The “Latin America, Africa, Obama” tour was so successful that we are gearing up to bring it to the East Coast in late June or early July. Before the last event, Cynthia ran out of the 80 or so books that we brought on the tour, so we had to take the names of people who wanted to buy autographed copies to be shipped to them.

A day after the tour ended, Cynthia McKinney, our tireless voice of conscience, flew to Addis Ababa to address the treatment of Palestinians she observed on her several efforts to break the blockade by sea and land.

Cynthia McKinney is definitely a people’s champ in much the same way as El Hajj Malik Shabazz and MLK. She carries their torch in our time and is now leading an international struggle for Black and poor people’s human rights. She needs and deserves your support – just like the SF Bay View newspaper and Block Report Radio, who brought you this tour.

Block Report Radio interviews Cynthia McKinney

This interview, recorded just before the tour began, was broadcast on KPFA April 22 by Greg Bridges on his show, Transitions on Traditions.

Minister of Information JR Valrey of Block Report Radio: Our next guest is six time congresswoman and 2008 Green Party candidate and international peace activist, the one and only Honorable Cynthia McKinney. How are you?

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney: I’m doing great, JR. How are you doing?

M.O.I. JR: I’m good. I know we are only days away from your upcoming California tour, where you’ll be helping the San Francisco Bay View newspaper to raise money for its very much needed services to the community. But you will also be profiling your new book, “Ain’t Nothing Like Freedom.” Can you tell the people a little bit about what’s going on at this tour that will stop on April 24 at Laney College and will also go to the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa on April 25. Can you tell the people a little about what you’ll be talking about?

CM: Well, of course. I’ll be talking about the contents of both of the books. The Libya book came out while the bombing was still going on in Libya. I took a group of journalists there so that we could tell the truth about what was happening on the ground rather than what the propagandizing media were saying to the world about what was being done in Libya.

And then the other book, the newest book, is “Ain’t Nothing Like Freedom,” and that book basically is about my time in Congress and what I felt as I was doing certain things on certain issues. I talk a lot about the World Conference Against Racism and the difference that we were able to make because we cared enough to challenge the Bush administration’s decision to boycott the conference. And we contrasted that to what happened recently under the Obama administration, where a similar decision was made, but the members of Congress chose to go along with the Obama administration.

Bay View publisher Willie Ratcliff, sponsor of Cynthia McKinney’s California tour, introduces her at Laney College. – Photo: Darnisha Wright
So I guess you could say that “Ain’t Nothing Like Freedom” is a recounting of my experiences inside Congress and things I think could make the Congress more responsive to the issues of the people – and how I felt just as a human being, as a person going through a smear campaign, multiple redistricting, the things that people said about me, the “soft repression,” I call it now: the stigmatizing, the ridiculing and ultimately now the silencing that I’m experiencing because I dare to speak out. And that’s interesting phraseology in and of itself: You speak out and so you get silenced, you know.

 

And I’ll be talking not only about my experiences but how I felt, because at the end of the day I have feelings just like everybody else. And so even though maybe I am a public person, I’m not supposed to have feelings? But my mother and my father’s hearts were broken by the treatment that I received. My mom still shudders at the idea of me going out in public and having to be viewed through the prism of the local news, because she knows they have a special interest and they are just not going to get it right; and I’ll end up looking like a caricature of myself.

I would like people to come out so they can experience me as a person – not as a product, not as a politician, not as a public persona – but me as an average American person just trying to make a difference.

M.O.I. JR: No doubt about that, and we support you. Can you tell the people a little about the content of your NATO book, or your book that deals with Libya?

CM: Well, we were fortunate enough to have people who contributed to the book who were there in Libya as the bombing took place, so we have that perspective. We also had the perspective of people who either lived in Libya or visited Libya prior to the bombing, and they gave that perspective. And then we had people who had an interest in Libya, had never been there but recognized the importance of this move by NATO, representing the White world supported by segments of people of color, so they had a particular view to present as well, and that was all there.

And I talk about what NATO represents. I just finished doing an interview where I was asked about apartheid in Israel, and it brings to mind the nature of global apartheid that continues to exist. I’ve had the opportunity to travel all over Europe, and I’ve seen Africans in Europe. Now the Europeans have gone into Africa and they have just completely decimated the continent to the best of their ability by stripping it of its resources, beginning with the stripping of its human resources during the transatlantic slave trade.

The numbers are staggering when you think about 100 million people being stripped out of a continent. It’s staggering to think about, to see this kind of destruction. So when Africans say, OK, you’ve made my home an intolerable place to live so I’m going to go to your home and live. Then that’s when you can see the apartheid inside the European countries. Through my travels, I have come to view this global apartheid.

And then what is the function of NATO? NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, was created as an outgrowth of World War II, which saw as its purview the preservation of “democracy” as opposed to communism or socialism in the Western European countries. While I was in Congress, I was one of the persons who voiced my opposition to the extension of NATO into areas in Eastern Europe.

 

Actually, NATO is an anachronism now. It was created to thwart the drive of the Soviet Union into Western Europe, and now we see NATO all over the world. It’s in Afghanistan, it was in Libya; it’s gone from Western Europe to Africa and Asia. And why is that?

What are the policies that are being protected by this military onslaught against people of color? Clearly the interests that are being protected are not the interests of the people in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya and other interests. We have to look at this, and I kind of just stumbled on this as a result of my travels and the glaring inequalities – glaring apartheid-like status of people of color in European countries – and then the sort of obverse of that in the countries that are populated by people of color. So I’m just putting voice to that now.

M.O.I. JR: You recently traveled to Caracas, Venezuela, and attended the funeral of the late great freedom fighter and president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. Can you tell the people a little about that experience as well as the counter-revolution that the United States has been trying to implement? You know, what’s going on on the ground in Caracas and in Venezuela?

CM: Well, first of all I have to state that I have always had a sense of solidarity with the peoples of Latin America, but that sense of solidarity was never really fully expressed. I have to say a word of thanks to my professor – I’m doing work on my Ph.D. and I am making great progress and great strides, and at the proper time I intend to invite everybody to come to my graduation – but it was one of my professors who suggested that I spread my wings and expand my territory beyond that which I knew. I do not speak Spanish; I do speak French, and so as a result of the similarities of the romance languages I am able to understand a bit of Spanish although I can’t speak it.

So I decided to get into some research on the U.S. policies, for example, with the Puerto Rican independence movement and the counter-intelligence program that operated against the Puerto Rican independentistas. From there my interest and my solidarity has grown such that I am now doing papers on Venezuela and Hugo Chavez.

Venezuela is in the midst of having elections after having lost its charismatic and transformative leader, so there is a lot of public sentiment that Nicolas Maduro will win the election. Now there’s some – I think a replay of what happened in Iran is under consideration – because of course the efforts of the United States government, which is against the values and the policies of the Bolivarian Revolution, are to thwart the victory of Nicholas Maduro and to taint the election process.

But, given that my very last election that I was in for Congress had people all over the state of Georgia voting in my single congressional district race, it’s unfathomable to me that anyone could suggest that elections abroad are tainted when it is clear that elections here at home are tainted, and we haven’t taken care of that business yet.

 

M.O.I. JR: Right. How do you feel about what was going on in the streets? Did you see the people calling Hugo Chavez a dictator like you do on mainstream news in the United States, or did you see the people supporting the Bolivarian Revolution as I saw in a lot of the alternative press that was also covering his passing?

CM: Well, there were millions of people in the streets; in fact, there were so many people who were at the military academy where he lay in state that I couldn’t even get close. The second time I went – I just came back maybe a week and a half to two weeks ago – I was there with an international delegation and they had to close the place off. We originally were scheduled to go in the morning, and we couldn’t go because there was still a crush of people there.

I saw people wailing in the streets. People were crying, people were angry, people were defiant, people were accusatory. I saw a full range of emotions there. And the interesting thing is I really have to question a person who puts the values and interests of another country ahead of their own country. We see that happening here in the United States as well. Those of us who hold fast say that there ought to be primacy of the rule of law and the protection of the Bill of Rights ought to be extended to every U.S. citizen. Yet we have people who stake their loyalty out for other countries and then follow what’s determined to be the interests of the other countries.

That is what the case is in Venezuela: You have a very small population of people who look to the United States for leadership and guidance. If this means that their fellow Venezuelan citizen has to suffer, then so be it, because they tie their identity so closely to that of the United States that they forget about the interests of their fellow Venezuelans, and I find that peculiar and sad.

M.O.I. JR: For those who are just tuning in, you are listening to the voice of international peace activist Cynthia McKinney right here on the Block Report. Ms. Cynthia McKinney, can you compare Hugo Chavez – Venezuela under Hugo Chavez – to Qaddafi’s Libya? What exactly were the two leaders about and what were their countries about under their leadership, as well as what is the similarity in how they were attacked and removed? Some say that Hugo Chavez was assassinated; we know that Qaddafi definitely was assassinated. Can you talk a little bit about the attacks on them and their countries by the United States as well as the similarity of their accomplishments?

CM: That’s a very interesting point that you bring out. I remember it was in 2002 when the world learned about the kidnapping of Chavez because the Irish journalists just happened to be there and produced the documentary, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.” What was it that Chavez was doing that was similar to what Qaddafi was doing?

Another president comes to mind in that region who was very close to Hugo Chavez and that’s President Aristide. After the Haitians defeated the French empire and declared a republic in 1804, Haiti was forced to pay reparations for their freedom to France. And President Aristide said it’s time for us to get our money back. We need to get our money back. France needs to pay us reparations.

 

And so Aristide began to turn the Haitian state around to invest in the Haitian people. When I was there, there was an effort to address the abysmal statistics on adult literacy, on sanitation – just the things we take for granted. I was there not too long ago where people were celebrating the fact that they had their first road coming into the town. For these kinds of investments, the administration in Haiti was derided. It accepted thousands of doctors from Cuba and petrodollars from Venezuela to build those roads and to uplift the people.

We saw what happened with President Aristide: He was kidnapped and kicked out. And the same thing happened to Hugo Chavez. Now what is it that he was doing? He was investing in the Venezuelan people for literacy. In fact, it’s so amazing: I just got back, as I said, and the people brag about reading. Can you imagine people bragging in the United States about reading? It doesn’t happen.

Hugo Chavez was investing in the Venezuelan people for literacy and the people brag about reading. Can you imagine people bragging in the United States about reading?

People brag in Venezuela about reading. They love their Constitution, they vote the Constitution, and so they love their Constitution. And they read and they read and they read because Hugo Chavez told them to read – to become a reading society. There are tens of thousands of Cuban doctors there. The petrodollars are being used to build schools and provide health care. Every neighborhood has a community garden where they have organic food. So their quality of life was being raised for the average Venezuelan in the Bolivarian Revolution.

And they read and they read and they read because Hugo Chavez told them to read – to become a reading society.

And now remember that Dick Cheney said that it was the American quality of life that justified the United States going across the world to 60 countries and declaring war on 60 countries. Dick Cheney said that this was a fight that was worth it because it was about the American quality of life. So is your quality of life better today than it was before the war on terror? For the average American citizen, it’s not.

The quality of life was measurably better for the average Venezuelan, the average Haitian, the average Libyan. The statistics from the United Nations indicate that Libya had the highest standard of living on the entire African continent. Not any longer. The subsidized education, subsidized housing, actually free education, free health care, subsidized food, free farming utensils if you wanted to start a farm.

Every so often there was a debt jubilee: People would charge up their credit cards buying Western things, and so there was a jubilee on that and people would be relieved of that debt. When was the last time that happened here?

The statistics from the United Nations indicate that Libya had the highest standard of living on the entire African continent.

You know, what we are experiencing, particularly in Latin America now, is a different vision for a different way of living and a different way of being, a different way of being human, and it’s about our humanity to each other, it’s how we treat each other, how we live with Mother Earth, how we live with each other. I met a U.S. citizen when I was there this last time in Venezuela, and she chose to leave the U.S. – a Black woman chose to leave the U.S. – and live in Venezuela. She’s been there for seven years now.

She said to me something that I still to this day reflect on and find very interesting. She said to me, “Cynthia technically I’m poor, but I have health care, I’m a teacher – I teach English and so I provide education for people – I have all the food that I need to eat, and so I question how they could call me poor.” And she went on to say that she found the materialism and the focus on consumption in the United States appalling and it just reached the point that she had to leave, so she left.

Every so often there was a debt jubilee: People would charge up their credit cards buying Western things, and so there was a jubilee on that and people would be relieved of that debt. When was the last time that happened here?

She said that there were seven other U.S. people who left with her. They were all men, and they all eventually returned to the United States. She said she recently reached out to all of them; to a person, every one of them is sorry that they returned to the U.S., because now they understand that quality of life doesn’t mean how many cars you have parked in your driveway and how big a driveway you have and how many houses you accumulate and what the square footage of your house is. That’s not an indication of your quality of life.

I think back to the King of Bhutan (a kingdom in the Eastern Himalayas), who said that the indicators for success for Bhutan were now going to be an indication of happiness: gross national happiness instead of gross national product. It’s all in the way we look at how we are supposed to relate to each other and to relate to earth. Mother Earth is not a commodity. Mother Earth is what sustains and gives us life.

M.O.I. JR: For those of you just tuning in, you are listening to the voice of the international peace activist Cynthia McKinney, who is on her way to the Bay Area. Wednesday, April 24, she will be speaking at the Laney College Forum at 6 p.m. And the next night, Thursday, April 25, she will be speaking at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa at 7 p.m. Ms. Cynthia McKinney, how can people stay in touch with you if they would like to hear more about what you’re talking about and they’re not able to make it to the tour?

CM: Well, I hope everyone will come to the tour. At least come see me, give me a hug, give me a high five, because it’s hard really to go on. There’s a friend of mine who says people don’t understand how hard it is to be Cynthia McKinney, so I’m going to unveil myself. I’m just going to be a regular ordinary person and I’d like to experience regular ordinary folks who want to talk about real things.

We can talk about politics, but let’s talk about life and love and living and happiness and wellness. Let’s talk about some other things. But if people can’t come, we can interact now, because I’m learning a little bit more about Facebook – at Cynthia McKinney official. If you go to the regular Cynthia McKinney page – there’s about three or four of them – don’t do that. Go to the one that says “official,” because that’s the one that I operate. I don’t even know who operates the other ones.

M.O.I. JR: As well as they can buy the two new books.

CM: Oh yes, of course; they can buy the books. Clarity Press makes them available online, or you can send someone to buy them in person and I’ll sign them.

Editor’s note: Both books were available on the tour until they sold out. The Bay View is special ordering more, which Cynthia will autograph. Email editor@sfbayivew.com or call (415) 671-0789 to order one or both books.

The People’s Minister of Information JR is associate editor of the Bay View, author of “Block Reportin’“ and filmmaker of “Operation Small Axe” and “Block Reportin’ 101,” available, along with many more interviews, at www.blockreportradio.com. He also hosts two weekly shows on KPFA 94.1 FM and kpfa.org: The Morning Mix every Wednesday, 8-9 a.m., and The Block Report every other Friday night-Saturday morning, midnight-2 a.m. He can be reached at blockreportradio@gmail.com.

RUMEC & PROTONMAIL

Transparency & Accountability

Written By:

Ryan Ward ambassador of Rumec

In collaboration with ProtonMail.                                                      

With a colossal escalation of interest in secure-impregnable open-source encryption email services, Jackson Stockman, Andy Yen and Wei Sun collaborated together colliding their thoughts and expertise in the cafeteria of the CERN research facility and not before long founding ProtonMail in 2013. With the vision and joint expertise of the ProtonMail’s team they have contemporaneously set the bar firmly for the safety and transference of our personal data, setting out to crucially fill the much-necessary void in lack of security and encryption and in doing so coherently masking the complexity of the cryptography. Serving a fully integrated platform designed to be intuitively merged with unparalleled ease of use and privacy. Which in turn is a highly functional anonymously secure end to end encrypted-free of cost email service for the entire global populations use, whom may not be as technologically adapted as the average savvy cryptanalyst.

                       Stationed in Switzerland the team at ProtonMail has revitalized the old PGP mail server market. With success & aspiration of their concept becoming a reality due to the launching of their project on a crowd funding site Indiegogo. Through doing so is far from a guaranteed success for many projects. The Success of this campaign is strapping evidence that ProtonMail’s social mission of safeguarding online privacy resonates strongly with the people around the world. Andy Yen knew of the possibilities of crowdfunding stating firmly “Do not underestimate the power of the crowd” and with over 10.000 people donating and raising well over $500.000 dollars, well and truly far passing its original goal of $100.000 which is affirmation of record breaking numbers, Andy was equitable in saying so. Things did not go so smoothly with the retrieval of the funds – On 31 July 2014 PayPal froze ProtonMail’s PayPal account, thereby preventing the withdrawal of US$251.721 worth of donations. PayPal stated that the account was frozen due to doubts of the legality of encryption, statements that opponents said were unfounded, and subsequently the constraints were lifted the following day. Only if Bitcoin was as widespread, Andy Yen would have done the entire campaign through the alternative.

                         Finances emerged, cascading in from many foundations, notably from the Charles River Ventures and the Foundation Genevoise pour L’Innovation Technologigue ( Fongit) amassing a benevolent donating of US$2Million. The service is constructed in such a way it delivers on all aspects which it promises– with enough paranoia instilled in its framework to keep predacious eyes away. On a system level, their servers utilize fully encrypted hard disks with multiple password layers so data security is preserved even if their hardware is seized, not to mention its primary datacenter being buried under 1000 meters of granite rock in a heavily guarded bunker which can survive a nuclear attack! On a lighter note all user data is protected by the (DPA) and the (DPO) which offers some of the strongest privacy protection in the world for individuals and corporations. As ProtonMail is outside of the US and EU jurisdiction, only a court from the cantonal court of Geneva or the Swiss Federal Supreme Court can compel them to release the extremely limited user information which they have.

 

The backdoors to security structures and voids in the technology where shown by disclosures from whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden, Such disclosures such as “Global surveillance and interception of email by the NSA “inspired ProtonMail at its foundation.

In further detail of ProtonMail’s firm and impassible security structure, they operate by using a combination of symmetric encryption protocols and public-key cryptography to offer end-to-end encryption. On formation of a ProtonMail account, your web-browser will generate a combination of public and confidential RSA keys. The public key is used to encrypt all of the users’ data such as email address & all other associated data developed by the user. The confidential key, which is capable of decrypting the user’s data, is symmetrically encrypted with the user’s mailbox password in the user’s web browser using AES-256. The public key and the encrypted private keys are then both stored on ProtonMail servers. Thus, ProtonMail stores decryption keys only in their encrypted form, so ProtonMail developers are incapable to retrieve user emails, do not record any metadata such as IP addresses.

                An email sent from one ProtonMail account to an additional ProtonMail account is automatically encrypted with the public key of the recipient. Once encrypted, only the private key of the recipient can decrypt the email. When the recipient logs in, their mailbox password decrypts their private key and unlocks their inbox. Emails transmitted from ProtonMail to non-ProtonMail email addresses may be sent with or without encryption. With encryption, the email is encrypted with AES and can only be decrypted with a separate password. This password has to be set by the sender and be given to the recipient through other channels. The recipient only receives a link to the ProtonMail website on which they can enter the password and read the decrypted email.

**With the state-of-the-art architecture of a ProtonMail datacenter, ProtonMail administrators maintain and own their own server hardware and network to avoid trusting a third party. In response to overwhelmed servers, in mid-2014 ProtonMail founders began expanding and developing server architecture. The service is currently powered by two redundant datacenters in central and western Switzerland. Each datacenter uses load balancing across web, mail and SQL servers, redundant power supply, hard drives with full disk encryption, and exclusive use of Lunix and other open-source software. ProtonMail also joined the RIPE NCC in an effort to have more direct control over the surrounding internet infrastructure. The use of (TLS) to secure and encrypt all internet traffic between users and ProtonMail servers. Protonmail.com currently holds an “A+” Rating from Qualys SSL Labs.

Super-encrypted email ProtonMail is just getting started to say the least, with over 500 thousand members in such a short period of time, ProtonMail has triggered an abundance of people to leave the comforts of providers they were previously using, with the various benefits of ProtonMail overwhelmingly over shadowing relevant competitors. One benefit being integrated with ProtonMail is that now you don’t have to be weary of big tech companies mining your data in order to sell and auction off to advertisers. ProtonMail focuses on the constitutional interests of its users. Not how many savvy features they can integrate, but focusing on the status that privacy should be a right, standing firmly with organizations whom share the same vision such as Tor, l2p, Freenet. Their goal is simple: They want to protect people around the world from the mass surveillance that is currently being perpetrated by governments and corporations around the world.

ProtonMail is not 100% foolproof, it is not intended for the next Edward Snowden, is certainly not NSA-proof, ProtonMail do not make these claims. ProtonMail is intended for the large cooperation’s or small businesses who wants to send communications and private documents more securely , for the average users data to be protected, the activist to protect his privacy rights. No email service will ever be 100 % safeguarded, With the use of malicious key loggers and other pernicious like Trojans , or the use of JavaScript programming language leaves it open to certain attacks that can infiltrate in other ways your data which ProtonMail has no control over. As time goes on, Patches and subsequent updates will be frequent and a lot of new features will be included (such as: Manual Key verification) to ensure optimal protection of data.

One distinguished feature ProtonMail have integrated is the Destruction of messages, you can now set an optional expiration time on encrypted emails, so they will be consequently deleted from the recipient’s inbox once they have expired. This technology works for both emails sent to other ProtonMail users, and encrypted emails sent to non-ProtonMail email addresses. Similar to SnapChat, They have added a way for you to have ephemeral communication.

ProtonMail was primitively conceived by PhD student Andy Yen, who collocated and called on fellow CERN scientists to examine the problem of online privacy, or rather the scarcity of it, and see if they could come up with a solution.

                     Andy Yen took to CERN’s Facebook group and the response was overwhelming. Within days, dozens of people decided to join the effort and more than 40 individuals took part in the dialogue. And has now catapulted to where its standpoint is today with a very diverse range of people throughout the team.

    The Snowden leak demonstrated what many technologists suspected and questioned for years, that the NSA was collectively obtaining access to commonly used technology to snoop on people – but many were taken aback by the sheer scale of the operation exposed by the whistleblower. There has been a huge upsurge within the internet community resorting to encrypted communications in light of the Snowden Affair. According to Canadian broadband management company Sandvine, the volume of encrypted internet traffic has skyrocketed in recent months. With the percentage of encrypted internet traffic in Europe quadrupled over the course of 2014 ‘Global Internet Phenomena Report the first half of 2014’, ProtonMail is looking to reach this relatively large volume of internet goers who would like to keep their communications private.

ProtonMail’s team is comprised of a devoted team of developers, Scientists, Researchers from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva and other high-level educational institutions such as(Harvard) (MIT) (USC)whom all have a wide range of experience and qualifications to match their titles at ProtonMail, You can view the entire team below. This team has taken on a huge responsibility to protect your civil liberties & email privacy and security against cyber-attacks for today and for the remaining future. They believe privacy is a fundamental human right that must be protected at any cost. What better of a group of people to do it than these guys! It is worth noting that - they all support Bitcoin!

ProtonMail is currently in public beta and the team (Dino Kadrikj, Yangfeng Zhang) is actively working on Android and iOS apps (beta). These should be fully launched in the near future, if all goes according to plan, the service will move out of beta at around the same time. The team has decided to adopt a freemium model to make the service pay, since the service is encrypted and, thus, cannot be used to serve targeted ads, such as Google AdSense, the team has decided to embrace this model. There is a chance that the data-mining model used by mass cooperation’s will die out in the next decade.

                           Since ProtonMail is all about the preservation of security and privacy, it does not track its users or gather any personally identifiable information. Of course, an additional level of security and anonymity is provided by one of the payment methods – bitcoin. Additional features and storage will be available. Full pricing tiers have not yet been announced, but the basic paid account will provide 1GB of storage for $5.

 

**Andy Yen delivered a profound and comprehensive thought-provoking ‘Ted Talk’, argued the point that encryption can be made simple to the point of becoming the default option, providing true email privacy to all.

**Andy Yen a physicist and economist by training, since 2010 Andy has been part of the ATLAS experiment at CERN, where his research and analysis focus has been on the search for supersymmetric particles. He is translating his experience in large-scale computing to build the infrastructure that is used to run ProtonMail. Andy stated “It's clear that we are under observation by both governments and corporations, and we can't just sit on the sidelines -- privacy is too important for democracy. We are computer scientists, we can do something, so we decided to try.” He has a very impressive resume within education & research, has been awarded various awards such as the George W. Housner award ( Awared to a caltech senior for an outstanding piece of original scientific research), U.S department of Energy, Graduate fellowship, National science Foundation graduate fellowship, Haren Lee Fisher Memroial award in junior physics, American physical society travel award , California academic decathlon state finals. To the observer: he is an intellectual with impressive academic credentials.

Encryption (the translation of data into a secret code) is the process of changing information in such a way as to make it unreadable by anyone except those possessing special knowledge (Usually referred to as a “Key”) that allows them to change the information back to its original, readable form. Encryption is critically important because it allows you to securely safeguard data that you don’t want anyone else to have access to by right. Encryption is an effective method of protecting and securing your corporate data, in the same way locking the doors to your business is an effective method of preventing trespassers. The hacking and selling of corporate data can be a very lucrative prospect for a potential hacker and, as such, protection against hacking is extremely important.

                    Corporations use it to protect corporate secrets, government’s use it to secure classified information, and many individuals use it to protect personal information to guard against things like identity theft.

**Espionage uses encryption to securely conserve folder contents, which could enclose emails, chat histories, tax information, credit card numbers, or any other sensitive information. This way, even if your computer is stole that data is safe. People complain that using encryption in email is too much work, which it can be fraught with difficulty for the encryption novice, but now with ProtonMail there is a secured solution. A maintained solution, in Switzerland whose team are sufficiently & persistently motivated to the task with the best encryption practices. ProtonMail creates a barrier against your most sensitive data being accessible to people who simple should not have it and you don’t want outsiders to eavesdrop in to your sensitive data. They are your first line of defense for relative security that is unlikely to be broken into within this century at current levels of encryption technology. Discussion in person is the only suitable replacement, barring life-threatening emergencies, for due diligence in maintaining my long-distance communications security.

               Comparing hacking (virtual theft) with burglary (physical theft), there is a much higher chance that your business will be hacked than there is that your business will be broken into. According to a recent survey, 90% of businesses say they have been hacked. Burglary statistics vary by region, but are typically extremely low (well under 1%).

                 Encryption is the most imperative privacy-preserving technology we have, and one that is compulsory, obligatory suited to protect against bulk surveillance, the kind done by governments looking to control their populations and criminals looking for vulnerable victims. By forcing both to target their attacks against individuals, we protect society. Encryption should be enabled for everything by default, not a feature you turn on only if you're doing something you consider worth protecting.

Proton Technologies AG based in Plan-Les-Ouates, Switzerland has grown into a global leader in online security. Today, they are the world’s largest secure email provider with over half a million users. In addition to their headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, they have support centers in San Francisco, CA, and Skopje, Macedonia. Their global presence allows them to provide 24/7 support and monitoring of mission critical applications for all their customers. ProtonMail works on various devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

Under the hood, ProtonMail uses OpenPGP, an old open source encryption standard that uses a mix of linked public and private crypto keys to lock and unlock data. The public key is shared, the private key kept secret. This allows one person to take another’s public key and use it to sign and scramble a message that can only be unlocked by the recipient’s private key. As long as they each have the others public key, they can converse with encrypted messages.

                     In September 2015, ProtonMail added native support to their web interface and mobile app for Pretty Good Privacy (PGP). This allows a user to export their ProtonMail PGP-encoded public key to others outside of ProtonMail, enabling them to use the key for email encryption, enabling the support of PGP encryption from ProtonMail to outside users.

Even with an encrypted webmail system able to withstand intelligence agency-level surveillance, ProtonMail was hit hard from the 3rd to the 7th of November 2015 with a DDOS (basically an enormous amount of junk data) that made the service largely unavailable to users. ProtonMail believes it was struck by two separate attacks from what appears to be a nation state, as well as an ‘Irrelevant in comparison’ secondary and separate lower-level assault from an identified assailant. The lower-level assault first led by a group of hackers known as the Armada Collective, and the second by an unknown, more technically advanced group with abilities & hallmarks similar to a state-sponsored group, extremely high sophistication and a colossal amount of resources. In detail the mix of attacks where in extremely high volume and was timed in a highly coordinated and sophisticated fashion with intentions of causing large-scale damage to achieve its aims

                                  The first attack was tied to a ransom of 15 bitcoins(roughly US&6,000) from the Armada Collective, which ProtonMail eventually paid due to pressure from ISPs and other companies affected by the attack. The DDoS attacks, however, did not stop and instead began to take on more sophistication, with rates exceeding 100 Gbps & an attack that leave experts stunned due to the pattern of tactics - with an attack on 15 different ISP nodes simultaneously, then attacking all the ISPs going into the data center .The Company received an email from the Armada Collective disclaiming responsibility for the ongoing attack. During the attack, the company stated on Twitter that it was looking for a new data center in Switzerland, saying that “many are afraid due to the magnitude of the attack against us”. They have since posted that they "have a comprehensive long term solution which is already being implemented". On 6 November, ProtonMail posted to twitter that their ISP came under 'renewed attack' that morning. On 7 November, they said that there was a '50% chance of coming back today'

We hoped that by paying, we could spare the other companies impacted by the attack against us, but the attacks continued nevertheless. This was clearly a wrong decision so let us be clear to all future attackers – ProtonMail will NEVER pay another ransom.’

                                     To avail and giving credit to, many of the world’s largest tech companies and networking experts who gave their offering of assistance to analyze and track the attack, Such as one of the world’s top DDoS protection companies (Radware) offering to step in at a significantly reduced prices in order to support ProtonMail’s Mission, Knowing that a large number of activists, dissidents, journalists, and regular users would have lost the ability to communicate, thus bringing ProtonMail back online in three days with the capability to withstand the largest distributed cyber-attack (DDoS)which has ever hit Switzerland. Also much of ProtonMail’s credit goes to its users whom contributed largely by donating over $50.000 to help with the current attack & safe guarding of services from future attacks by developing a permanent solution.

                          DDoS attacks are common and crude, they are also effective at disrupting critical networking infrastructure. When attacks at this magnitude are carried out on companies such as ProtonMail, with purpose to destroy the community, but this attack only served to unify the entire community including security organizations, united by a common cause and vision for the .

                                   Chillingly enough commonly someone will take responsibility for the attacks or request a ransom, on this occasion – their sole mission was to keep ProtonMail offline.

With a colossal amount of people flocking to CERN’s new super-secure email and you don’t have to ask why, its servers must grow exponentially in order to cope with the capacity of interest. Even with a major infrastructure upgrade, thus allowing ProtonMail to quickly invite a lot of users from their waiting list, they still rely largely on donations in order to add more servers, your donations will also give you an exclusive perk of as a higher capacity of storage in your email account, also another exclusive is that soon users will have the opportunity to invite others to the service without having to wait. Also by the end of year ProtonMail will be offering customized business domains.

It is time for an alternative, a framework constructed of reckoning and logic, with privacy deep at its core foundation, the community at its heart, whom propelled ProtonMail to where it is today. It is in thanks to the community who donates, shares, advocates a platform of your right to anonymity and privacy, a community who strongly believe that privacy is a fundamental human right that must be protected at any cost.

            With the advent of the internet now making us more vulnerable to mass surveillance than at any other point in human history. The disappearance of online privacy is a very dangerous trend as in many ways privacy and freedom go hand in hand. ProtonMail believes that the best way to guard against mass surveillance is to give encryption to everybody making it free and easy to use.

                             ** Sign up to ProtonMail and join a community that is rapidly growing as you read this, be part of something remarkable and transforming of the norm.

Thanks to the entire team at ProtonMail , the early adopters, the entire community, the organizations who helped tackle the largest cyber-attack on Switzerland, for now allowing a revolutionary framework to open up to the world, giving myself and people around the world a right to privacy for our generation and generations to come. Thank you.

The future is in our hands. Your donations are what make privacy possible.


CHIAPAS ´s amber

CHIAPAS’S AMBER Although there are amber deposits in several parts of the world, Chiapas amber is special. In its natural state it is found in yellow-, red- or gold-colored nodes inside sandy, calcareous marine strata and layers of lignite in geological formations dating from the end of the Oligocene and the beginning of the Miocene epochs, from between 22.5 to 26 million years ago. Researchers have determined that its paleo-botanical origin was the resin of a legume called the Hymenaea, an ancestor of the tree known locally as the guapiñol.

ALWAYS LOOKING AFTER LABOR AND HUMAN RIGTHS

RUMEC COMERCIO CONSCIENTE

Por Redacción RUMEC/ 20/12/16

Desde su fundación realizada por Miguel Suarez, RUMEC es construcción metafórica y literal. Las raíces Comercio consciente:

 

ancestrales son uno de los ejes simbólicos a través de los cuales RUMEC se identifica. Tierra, trabajo e igualdad. La tierra es pues de quien la trabaja por tanto es necesario dar lo justo a cada cual.  Comercio e intercambio consciente, que el mundo conozca y reconozca la gran producción que México produce en muy distintos rubros, que la gente que trabaja para otorgar su creación sea valorada por su entrega y pasión a su labor.

Y es que el territorio mexicano es un vasto y diverso crisol de idiomas, costumbres y tradiciones.  Uno puede acudir a cada rincón de este rico país, México, toparse a cada paso con un mundo por conocer y dar otro paso y no terminar en una vida. Literal. Maravillarse con la belleza y la riqueza que abunda en estas tierras buenas y no solo eso, conocer e intercambiar con un sinnúmero de gente.

Uno de todos esos lugares, quizá uno de los más bellos, es San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas. Es por ello que en esta ocasión RUMEC está aquí en San Cristóbal, para entablar lazos con su cultura y su gente. Aquí donde la cultura Zoque es un baluarte contemporáneo que debe ser mundialmente reconocido. Lleno de vida y verdes “San Cris”, como comúnmente es nombrado este municipio chiapaneco se distingue por albergar a artistas muy talentosos y talentosas. Una de ellas es Enzué, una artista y grabadora nativa de la Ciudad de México con una gran trayectoria de creación que actualmente radicada en San Cristóbal de las Casas.

En días recientes, Enzué, celebró el primer aniversario de su galería Enzué Open Art estudio en San Cristóbal de la Casas y RUMEC estuvo ahí para acompañar este gran acontecimiento que en  palabras de la artista representa la coronación de un año de esfuerzo. A su vez está celebración tuvo como fin la preservación de los usos y costumbres de la cultura y la gastronomía Zoque[1]. Este evento que fue impulsado por TEQUIO MEQUÉ, un colectivo de portadores zoques tuxtlecos especializados en  la preservación  y sostenibilidad basada en la fiesta ritual zoque tuxtleca.

 

Un evento que ha contado con degustación y música en vivo de sonidos ancestrales con virtudes sanadoras y cuyos ejes más destacados han sido los de expresar la importancia del alimento orgánico, así como resaltar la importancia de esta importante cultura, predecesora de la cultura Maya y Olmeca, según investigaciones de TEQUIO MEQUË; la importancia del concepto de Autoarquía, es decir, la promoción del consumo local y regional en primer lugar como salvaguarda de la economía de la comunidad.  

 

Como líneas más arriba se menciona RUMEC construye igualdad estuvo ahí para soldar la relación con Enzué, partiendo de la premisa de que unidos y organizados podemos llegar más lejos, RUMEC y Enzué han decidido formar una alianza para desarrollar una línea de distribución de arte y cultura donde el comercio consiente sea el norte. Además de poner bien en alto a la cultura Zoque y su relación con el maíz y la tierra. Si algo hay de importante para RUMEC es que los productos mexicanos puedan llegar a rincones antes impensados.  

 

Palabras clave: RUMEC, Cultura Zoque, Enzué

 



[1]Entre la variedad que ofrece esta cocina podemos encontrar el pozol, shuti, frijol con masa, chanfaina y machetones, además un platillo exótico de larvas de abeja de panal blanco asadas.

RUMEC & MEZCAL

Por: Severino Cruz Oaxca Mx 2016

EN ASOCIACION CON RUMEC :

Para todo mal mezcal, para todo bien también" Dicho popular.

También el mezcal tiene su mito

Un rayo, al golpear un agave, fue quien hizo la primera tatema. Es por eso se considera la bebida llegada del cielo. Para hacer el mezcal, se asan las pencas y raíz, ya sea en hornos de leña o de gas, o como barbacoa, enterrándolas en el suelo. En los mercados se venden las pencas tatemadas de maguey. Los indios apaches mezcaleros reciben ese nombre porque estas pencas horneadas, precisamente, sin fermentar, fueron parte esencial de su dieta.

El origen del mezcal se remonta a tiempos ancestrales, en Mesoamérica, donde ya se obtenía del agave, cuya bebida se consideraba sagrada y con la cual se creía se entraba en "contacto con los dioses".

La producción en sus inicios se hacía con plantas de agave silvestre, posteriormente comenzó su cultivo hasta convertirse en una tradición. El agave se jima, se tatema, se fermenta y se destila para obtener un producto que durante gran parte de la Colonia estuvo prohibido.

El mezcal, como tantas otras bebidas alcohólicas, nació no sólo cerca del ceremonial y la fiesta, sino también cerca de los remedios y de la medicina. En la medicina tradicional, el mezcal, como el alcohol de caña, se utilizan para asperjar, sobar y limpiar. Con él se bendicen también las milpas, las construcciones y las cruces.

En el Valle de Oaxaca, se acompaña a los santos difuntos al panteón, el 2 de noviembre y se vierte el último trago encima de los sepulcros, para que las ánimas vayan bien despedidas. Es parte importante en todas las fiestas: se cuenta entre los regalos cuando hay petición de novia, bautizos, velorios y fiestas patronales. El mezcal y las bebidas fuertes se reparten y se intercambian en tequios (trabajo comunal voluntario y gratuito) y veladas, y se bebe ofreciendo a las cuatro direcciones, o metiendo el dedo y ofrendando estas gotas a la tierra. A diferencia de la cerveza, el tepache o chicha, éste es el licor ritual, ceremonial y de la vida civil de muchos pueblos indígenas del país.

El mezcal es bebida ceremonial, grupal, de adultos. Con el mezcal se ofrenda, con las otras bebidas, se brinda. En las fiestas siempre se reparte en orden jerárquico y no se le puede rechazar, aunque sí guardar en las botellas que se llevan para este fin. Se bebe sólo lo que se ofrece y al ritmo que se ofrece, durante los tres o cuatro días que duren las celebraciones.

TIPOS DE MEZCAL

El corriente o chaparrose fermenta en cueros, con corteza de madera de timbre y pulque.

El mezcal de puntas es el de la primera destilación y el de colas es de la resacada, a cuyo caldo a veces se le añade miel.

Al de gusano se le pone, para envasarlo, un gusano de maguey. Suele tomarse, además, con sal de gusano, que no falta en las cantinas donde lo sirven, ni en las ollitas en las cuales se vende.

La elaboración de mezcal involucra ocho especies y 17 formas protegidas o silvestres, la mayor producción se da en la “región del mezcal” de los Valles Centrales y Sierra Sur. El espadín (Agave angustifolia) se cultiva con fines comerciales en siete distritos. Otras especies corresponden al maguey mexicano (Agave rhodacantha), papalometl (Agave potatorum), tobalá (Agave seemanniana), tepeztate (Agave marmorata), cirial, barril, bicuixe, tobasiche (Agave karwinskii), arroqueño (Agave americana variedad americana) y maguey Sierra Negra (Agave americana variedad oaxacensis).
