Why I think investing money in the best UK shares today could make you an ISA millionaire

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Peter Stephens Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Investing money in UK shares has been a successful means of making a million for many years. The FTSE 100, for example, has produced an annual return of around 8% (including dividends) since its inception in 1984.Since then, some periods have represented better buying opportunities than others. Periods when valuations were low have generally provided greater capital return potential for new investors.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Therefore, now could be an opportune moment to build an ISA portfolio of UK shares. Weak investor sentiment and the stock market’s recovery prospects could make it easier to become an ISA millionaire in the coming years.Investing money at the right timeInvesting money while the valuations of UK shares are low has historically provided investors with greater return prospects than buying when valuations are high. However, the difficulty is that the best times to buy FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares are generally after a market crash, when investor sentiment is weak and the economic outlook is uncertain.Those risks often dissuade investors from buying stocks, and may even push them towards lower-risk assets such as cash and bonds. However, the track record of the UK stock market shows that it has always recovered from its bear markets and downturns to produce new record highs. So, while it currently trades at a relatively low level, there may be significant recovery potential in the form of high capital gains available for long-term investors.Overcoming short-term challengesClearly, investing money while risks are currently high is a tough task for any investor to overcome. Naturally, your gut instinct is to take less risk, rather than more risk, while the global economy is experiencing one of its most difficult periods in living memory.However, if you have a long time horizon, there is likely to be ample time for UK shares to recover from any short-term setbacks along the way. Therefore, even if the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 experience a second market crash this year, they are very likely to mount successful comebacks in the long run. Through building a diverse portfolio of high-quality stocks that have the financial means to survive a period of weak operating conditions, you can benefit from the recovery potential of the stock market.Making a millionEven assuming that investing money today earns a rate of return that is similar to the FTSE 100’s track record, buying £750 of UK shares per month over 30 years would produce an ISA valued at over £1m.However, with many UK shares trading at low price levels, it may be possible to obtain a higher rate of growth that shortens the amount of time required to build a seven-figure portfolio. Therefore, now could be the right time to start buying FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares for the long run. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Foto de la iglesia episcopal de The Falls.[Episcopal News Service] Cuando los miembros de la iglesia episcopal de The Falls [The Falls Church Episcopal] instalen nuevamente su nuevo rector y celebren juntos su nuevo ministerio el 15 de mayo, habrá pasado más de un año desde que regresaron por primera vez a su histórico edificio, nueve meses desde que su rector se les unió y cinco días antes de lo que habían esperado que sería la última fecha en la disputa de casi siete años por la propiedad de la parroquia.“Será una noche en la que daremos gracias por el pasado y expresaremos nuestro entusiasmo por el presente y el futuro y por las grandes cosas que Dios está haciendo aquí”, dijo el Rdo. John Ohmer, rector de la iglesia de The Falls, en una entrevista.Shannon Johnston, obispo de la Diócesis de Virginia, quien presidirá el oficio, dijo a Episcopal News Service que la celebración y la renovación de los ministerios “tiene un tremendo significado” para la congregación.“Luego de regresar a su hogar parroquial hace un año, los miembros y el liderazgo de esta congregación han invertido una enorme cantidad de energía en su misión y ministerio como congregación. En este servicio, nos reuniremos para celebrar esa renovación y el compromiso con un futuro muy prometedor”, dijo él. “Que podamos hacerlo en este histórico escenario, hogar de tantas generaciones de episcopales, es lo más adecuado”.El Rdo. John Ohmer —que aparece aquí con suministros destinados a un ministerio para personas sin hogar— dice que se sintió llamado a unirse a la congregación porque “[ésta] tenía una visión convincente de lo que la Iglesia Episcopal podría volver a hacer en la iglesia de The Falls”. Foto de la iglesia episcopal de The Falls.Johnston dijo que Ohmer “aporta una visión y un espíritu excepcionales” a la iglesia de The Falls. Ohmer, la Rda. Cathy Tibbetts, la vicaria, y el liderazgo laico de la congregación “participan de un empeño común para garantizar que la iglesia de The Falls siga creciendo y prosperando en su servicio a Cristo”, añadió.La iglesia episcopal de The Falls ha estado proyectándose hacia el futuro desde que los miembros de esta histórica parroquia suburbana de Washington, D.C. decidieran por abrumadora mayoría, en diciembre de 2006, abandonar la Diócesis de Virginia y la Iglesia Episcopal en medio de una disputa teológica. Los que decidieron irse de hecho se quedaron en la propiedad de la iglesia de The Falls y rehusaron devolverla a la diócesis.Sólo 27 de cerca de 2.800 miembros siguieron vinculados a la Iglesia Episcopal después de la votación. Este grupo comenzó a reunirse en la sala de una casa y eligió una junta parroquial. Peter Lee, a la sazón el obispo de Virginia, le asignó un clérigo al grupo y poco después la Iglesia Presbiteriana de Falls Church[*] que se levanta en la acera de enfrente de la iglesia episcopal, les ofreció un espacio para adorar en el ático de su salón. El grupo no tardó en desbordar ese ático y tuvo que mudarse dos veces a espacios más amplios dentro de la iglesia presbiteriana.“Los presbiterianos estaban absolutamente asombrados”, dijo Matt Rhodes, uno de los feligreses. “Todavía seguimos participando del mismo ministerio compartido que ellos llevan a cabo con los desamparados”.La asistencia dominical aumentó rápidamente hasta alcanzar un promedio de entre 80 y 100, y desde el comienzo, dice Ohmer, los episcopales “tuvieron realmente una visión convincente de lo que la Iglesia Episcopal podría llegar a ser de nuevo en Falls Church”.Añadió que él dudaba que cualquiera de ellos hubiera esperado pasar cerca de siete años en una disputa legal por la propiedad de la iglesia, que finalmente se ventiló en el Tribunal Supremo del Estado [de Virginia]. La iglesia de The Falls fue una de las 11 congregaciones de la diócesis en que una mayoría de los miembros votó a favor de desafiliarse de la diócesis y de la Iglesia Episcopal. En el curso de los años, todas las iglesias, con excepción de la Iglesia Anglicana de The Falls, arreglaron sus conflictos de propiedad con la diócesis y con la Iglesia luego de veredictos judiciales a favor de estas entidades [la diócesis y la Iglesia Episcopal].Luego de que un juez del circuito judicial del Condado de Fairfax le ordenara a la Iglesia Anglicana de The Falls en marzo de 2012 que devolviera la propiedad parroquial a la diócesis, los anglicanos sólo convinieron en dejar que los episcopales regresaran al edificio parroquial para celebrar la Pascua (el 8 de abril de 2012).Sin embargo, la congregación anglicana poco después apeló al Tribunal Supremo del Estado y en el ínterin le pidió al Tribunal de Circuito que impidiera el regreso de los episcopales hasta que el tribunal supremo se pronunciara. El Tribunal de Circuito rehusó esta petición y los episcopales de la iglesia de The Falls regresaron a su propiedad el 15 de mayo de 2012.El 18 de abril de este año, el Tribunal Supremo de Virginia ratificó el veredicto del tribunal de circuito de devolver la propiedad de la iglesia de The Falls a los episcopales.El Rdo. John Yates, rector de la Iglesia Anglicana de The Falls, le dijo a su congregación el 28 de abril que el veredicto del Tribunal Supremo constituía “un apabullante rechazo de nuestros argumentos” y “reduce drásticamente nuestras opciones legales”.“A menos que podamos percibir que existen medios ulteriores de apelación que tengan buen juicio, podemos decir que resulta claro que no regresaremos a nuestra antigua propiedad” ni recuperaremos algo de los fondos que son parte de la disputa, escribió él.Y en su mensaje semanal correspondiente a la semana del 19 de mayo, que se puede consultar en la página web de la congregación anglicana desde el 15 de mayo, Yates dice: “Hemos recibido ulterior confirmación de que no es probable que los tribunales revoquen su dictamen del año pasado”. Él explicó por qué los líderes de la congregación “están dispuestos a perder nuestra propiedad y avanzar hacia un futuro incierto y difuso”.No obstante, La Iglesia Anglicana de The Falls tiene hasta el 20 de mayo para solicitar del Tribunal Supremo [del Estado de Virginia] una nueva vista sobre su veredicto, y una carta de los dos guardianes y de la junta parroquial de la congregación, fechada el 10 de mayo, indica que la iglesia le pedirá al tribunal que reconsidere su dictamen. Los abogados de la congregación anglicana le dijeron a la junta parroquial que el Tribunal Supremo basó su decisión “en un argumento que, en siete años de procedimientos judiciales, nunca había sido presentado por la otra parte” y que ellos no habían sido capaces de abordar, según dice la carta. Por consiguiente, la junta parroquial anunció que “presentará una breve petición al tribunal [para una nueva vista] dentro de unos días” mientras sigue en su búsqueda de un hogar permanente.“Era nuestra esperanza, desde luego, que ellos hubieran decidido que era hora de cerrar este largo capítulo legal y que concentraran todas sus finanzas y energías, y que nos permitieran a nosotros concentrar todas nuestras energías, en nuestros [respectivos] ministerios”, dijo Ohmer a ENS.Ohmer agregó que una de sus frustraciones es ver como el largo proceso legal “ha convencido falsamente” a algunas personas de que los anglicanos y los episcopales se proponen mantenerse en guardia unos contra otros”, cuando de hecho lo que deberíamos todos es aglutinar nuestras energías para combatir el enemigo común que ambos compartimos: el del feroz consumismo de nuestra cultura y un sentimiento generalizado de desorientación, desesperanza, soledad y falta de propósito”.“Esos son algunos de los enemigos comunes que ambas ‘partes’ tenemos”, afirmó, “para los cuales el Evangelio es una alternativa, y yo anhelo que llegue el día en que ellos y nosotros podamos concentrar el 100 por ciento de nuestras energías y recursos en nuestros ministerios, que son después de todo los mismos”.Ohmer contó que el pasó 13 años como rector de la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol [St. James Episcopal Church] en Leesburg, Virginia, descartando cualquier oferta parroquial que le saliera al encuentro, hasta que vio la de la iglesia episcopal de The Falls.“Había algo [atractivo] en este amable, laborioso y paciente grupo de personas”, subrayó él. “Es una historia convincente de personas que realmente creen en sí mismas como una comunidad de fe que es leal a la Iglesia Episcopal, leal al Evangelio y que quiere ser buenas nuevas para la comunidad. Han atravesado por una época realmente difícil, exiliados de su propiedad durante seis, casi siete años”.Rhodes y su familia son del mismo parecer. Cuando el Rdo. Michael Pipkin, que era el sacerdote encargado de la congregación poco después de la separación, necesitó una cirugía de espalda, un sacerdote de la parroquia de Rhodes, la iglesia de Cristo [Christ Church] en Alexandria, estuvo entre los clérigos que lo suplieron. Rhodes, que vive a un par de kilómetros de la iglesia de The Falls, dijo que su familia decidió asistir un domingo de 2008 para que el sacerdote viera algunos rostros que le resultaran familiares en la congregación.“Nunca nos fuimos” apuntó él.“Hay muchísimo entusiasmo, muchísima energía y muchísimo crecimiento” que según Rhodes depende de estar de regreso a la propiedad de Falls Church, y la sensación de mirar hacia fuera desde la iglesia y hacia el futuro que Ohmer aportó a la parroquia.La congregación está considerando la mejor manera de constituirse en buenas nuevas para la comunidad de Falls Church que Ohmer describe, tanto a través de ministerios de acción social como del ministerio para los desamparados [en asociación] con los presbiterianos y a través de una mayor utilización de los edificios de la iglesia. La iglesia abrió sus puertas en apoyo a distintos grupos, a una clase de inglés como segundo idioma y a agrupaciones cívicas que buscan un espacio parea reunirse o para celebrar un banquete.En un caso en particular, una congregación predominantemente afroamericana, que necesitaba un lugar para celebrar su primer aniversario, se puso en contacto con la iglesia episcopal de The Falls y terminó teniendo la celebración en su santuario. Ohmer dijo que, en lo que planificaban esta actividad, se enteraron de que la pastora principal de la congregación no tenía oficina y estaba dirigiendo la iglesia desde su auto y desde un café Starbucks de la localidad. Ella ahora alquila un espacio en la iglesia episcopal de The Falls por un mínimo costo, explicó él.Ohmer agregó que ellos están demostrando que el lema “La Iglesia Episcopal te da la bienvenida” es “verdad en lo que respecta a la comunidad de la fe y es verdad en lo que respecta a los edificios y terrenos”.“Tenemos el objetivo de que la comunidad en su sentido más amplio use un gran porcentaje de la propiedad durante un gran porcentaje del tiempo”.El crecimiento de feligreses —entre 180 y 220 personas que ahora asisten como promedio los domingos— ha incluido a ex miembros que “se fueron cuando vieron lo que estaba ocurriendo respecto a la división”, así como personas que nunca han formado parte de la iglesia de The Falls, personas nuevas en la zona y otros episcopales “que vinieron a ver de qué íbamos”,  explicó Rhodes. La escuela dominical y la agrupación de jóvenes están creciendo en la medida en que se agregan familias jóvenes, añadió.El 15 de mayo, la parroquia le dará oficialmente la bienvenida al último grupo de nuevos visitantes, a quienes Ohmer definió como “un signo externo y visible muy pujante de la energía y vida nuevas que están teniendo lugar aquí”.Y, mientras la iglesia episcopal de The Falls ha estado creciendo y mirando hacia el exterior, y enfrentándose con los dilatados problemas legales, la parroquia ha tenido que lidiar con las secuelas de la división en otro nivel más personal. Las familias se dividieron y aún siguen divididas por las decisiones del año 2006, dijo Ohmer. En algunos casos un cónyuge podía asistir a la congregación anglicana de Falls Church mientras el otro adoraba en la episcopal.Cuando surgen problemas de atención pastoral en esas familias, precisa Ohmer, “ese tipo de diferencias simplemente desaparece. Cuando se trata de cuidado pastoral, nos ocupamos de las familias de unos y otros”.– La Rda. Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

The Fourth of July by the numbers

first_img Reply 45 percent (roughly): Percent of people who attend a fireworks display on July 4 (there are more than 14,000 fireworks displays nationwide)$311.7 million: How much fireworks imported from China are worth; the total value of imported fireworks is $324.8 million$4.4 million: The value of American flags imported every year (mostly from China)2.5 million: The number of people living in the United States in July 1776 (there were 321.4 million people in the country last July 4)150 million: Number of hot dogs consumed every Independence Day; for anyone curious, that is enough to stretch from Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles…more than five times UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 $6.77 billion: Total spend planned for food on July 4 (there’s clearly more than just hot dogs included in that dollar amount)33: The number of counties (or “census incorporated places”) that have Liberty in their name (coincidentally, there are 11 places with Independence in their name, and there is only 1 place that has Patriot in its name: Patriot, Ind.)0: The number of times the Liberty Bell tolled on July 4, 1776, in honor of the Declaration of IndependenceSo, there you have it. Go stuff yourself with hot dogs before setting off some fireworks. But, please remember, don’t be a statistic for next year’s July 4 by the numbers. 6 COMMENTS July 4, 2017 at 9:35 pm Mama Mia Gov.

Mama Mia Reply Not just hot dogs: $6.77 billion spent on food todayFrom rare.usHappy Fourth of July! It’s time to celebrate the anniversary of America’s own #Brexit with hot dogs, parades and large explosions.Independence Day — the one in honor of when we decided to eliminate that whole monarchy thing, not the day when aliens attacked — is one of the country’s great holidays. It’s perfect for traveling, eating lots of food and celebrating with friends and family.The best part is there is no one-size-fits-all template for how to celebrate. So, in honor of the day, here are a few numbers that will put the party in a whole new light: These fireworks around here in this neighborhood are big ones! They aren’t legal to fire off! This is getting ridiculous. I can’t believe they allow all these tents to set up and sell them. If it had not of rained, and the ground wasn’t wet, I’m sure something would already be on fire……..idiots. The last few nights it was a steady stream of big loud ones, then a lull, that gave you enough time to get back to sleep, then boom boom boom again, and then repeat, until the wee hours of the morning. I guess the neighborhood around Apopka High is full of farmers scaring off birds over their crops……….Isn’t that the forms they sign at the tent sales to buy the big ones? These are the most inconsiderate people I have ever seen around this neighborhood, ridiculous! Maybe they NEED to sell fireworks year round in this state, like in SC, then they wouldn’t be such as big deal, like they are to these idiots here in Flori-duh…..duh…..duh……..X#**%^?L$!!!! Apparently my nutty firework happy neighbors and their guests aren’t the only nuts who are certified fools……Joey Chestnut, a true nut, finished the number 1 winner in the men’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest today by eating 72 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes!

The house is located in Vilamoura, municipality of Loulé, one of the most touristic places in Algarve and one of the top vacation destinations of the Portuguese.Save this picture!© Mercês Tomaz GomesSet in a neighbourhood of single-family houses, the project focused on an existing building dating from the 80s and on which it was proposed an intervention aimed at expansion and adaptation to a new program.Save this picture!© Mercês Tomaz GomesThus, the project of rehabilitation / expansion focused on the following principles:Designing a solution that articulates the pre-existing construction with a proposal of expansion able to interpret the housing program and fit simultaneously to the pre-existing construction.Save this picture!Floor PlanInvest on a clear distinction between private and social areas, taking advantage of the “L” configuration of the pre-existing construction.Enrich the generator concept of the existing house, the porch, emphasizing the connection between interior and exterior with the creation of larger openings in south and west facades;Save this picture!© Mercês Tomaz GomesInsert the “patio” as an additional element in the resolution of issues associated with natural lighting and ventilation of the house, exploring simultaneously the crossing visual relations;Increase the area of the pool with a water mirror, resulting in a total surface directly proportional to the construction that involves it, creating simultaneously a privileged area of ​​outdoor living.Save this picture!© Mercês Tomaz GomesCONCEPT:Volumetrically, the project tries to introduce greater clarity to the constructed object by correcting some alignments and reinforcing the “L” configuration that the building originally held.The new configuration is achieved through new volumes that are attached to the existing building in the continuity of existing plans and replicating the geometry of coverage plans, but distinguishing itself through its singular materiality.Save this picture!AxonometricThe combination of the initial construction masonry plans and the exposed concrete plans allow us to identify the different “times” of the house, combining pre-existing structure with the recent intervention, which are intended to build new spatial relations and new programmatic commitments.These new “bodies” enabled simultaneously to articulate the connection that the house establishes with the streets, which is closed, and with the garden, which is opened.Save this picture!© Mercês Tomaz GomesPROGRAM:Functionally, the program is distributed on one floor only.The Hall operates as a “kneecap” from which the two major areas are distinguished – social area on the left wing and the access to the rooms that develops threading the entrance area.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe area corresponding to the social program includes the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and the large porch that relates directly to the pool.The extension of the pool supports the visual relationship between the living room and the water level while enhancing the connection between the building and the pool around which is located the large outdoor living area.Save this picture!© Mercês Tomaz GomesThe more restricted area results from linear distribution of three bedrooms, the last being the master bedroom of the house, where a new volume receives the toilet, dressing room and a small patio between them, responsible for lighting and ventilation in these two spaces.Still in the entrance area the office/library allows to open or close itself, compressing or dilating this area, with it being possible, in the future, to integrate it in the bedroom wing.Save this picture!DiagramIn synthesis, the design strategy adopted results of the combination between the demand for a clear reading of the object and of its program of uses and functions.The patios and porches are responsible for mediating the interior spaces and the exterior of the house.Save this picture!© Mercês Tomaz GomesMATERIALITY:We opted for the use of traditional materials and coatings, as exemplified by the cement materials, plasters, woods, and the pottery of local tradition, combined with the construction of new elements in apparent concrete with wood planks formwork that allowed a certain plasticity to the material, adapting it to the scale of the house program.Save this picture!© Mercês Tomaz GomesThe painting of the house in an off-white color acts as an articulating element of the design, unifying the pre-existing structure and new building elements.Project gallerySee allShow lessMarc Mimram Reveals Design for New TGV Station in MontpellierUnbuilt ProjectDEFACED Makes a Stand Against Controversial Demolition of NYC Graffiti

On the north side of this project is a commercial Hutong– West Sanding Factory Street, while on the south side is residential Luanqing Hutong, which is a typical small courtyard that is very suitable for living at that time.Save this picture!© Chaoying YangThe house is in ruins, and the roof, doors, and windows have long since disappeared. In the house, however, two large trees have grown, and we made “a room in the middle of the house” to keep the trees. The two roofs in the middle utilized overlapping bamboo steel of the original wooden frame size. The transparent bamboo steel roof conforms to the scale of the original roof tile and forms a more see-through effect in the middle of the roof as it introduces a sufficient amount of sunlight to the small courtyard to facilitate the growth of the trees, and the roofs on both sides were repaired using the ancient method. Save this picture!© Chaoying YangSave this picture!Exploded axonometric diagramSave this picture!© Chaoying YangTo ensure that the original living area is not reduced, we extended the side rooms into the courtyard appropriately, leaving a gourd-shaped courtyard in the middle. Together with an entrance porch, a small two-in-one “Gourd Garden” is formed.Save this picture!© Chaoying YangThe continuous vertical grille forms the curved wall, which, like a snake, travels through the ordinary courtyard and redefines the excessively rigorous spatial order. The curved wall has a series of open and close bamboo steel screen doors, a space which is filled with skylights between the original building and this new addition. The vertical grille filters the strong sunlight and provides a relatively private interior space in the courtyard. The “Gourd Garden” has its interior space opened to the sky and separated from the courtyard; this spatial contrast strengthened the Siheyuan’s endocentric spirit.Save this picture!© Chaoying YangThe small courtyard can be divided into three small units based on functionality. The east wing and the southeast corner can be used as two complete LOFT apartments. The southwest corner is a two-standard-width office space. The deeper west wing which can be divided into two can be used as an exhibition and event space; the two entrances in the north and south can also be used separately.Save this picture!© Chaoying YangSave this picture!© Chaoying YangMaintaining the original architectural texture of the courtyard, we attempted to renovate the original, traditional, and vernacular layout patterns and historical features as much as possible, while the interior space can evolve into other unique spatial experiences. It rebuilds the peace of the inner city by creating an introverted utopia to neutralize the bustling outside world, which can reveal a more universally significant spatial model for the old city regeneration agenda.Save this picture!© Chaoying YangProject gallerySee allShow lessSir David Adjaye’s New Residential Tower Presents Gaggenau-Equipped KitchensArticlesHouse in Shimogamo / td-Atelier + ENDO SHOJIRO DESIGNSelected Projects Share Luanqing Hutong Courtyard House / URBANUS Area:  234 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeURBANUSOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationBeijingOn FacebookChinaPublished on May 04, 2021Cite: “Luanqing Hutong Courtyard House / URBANUS” 04 May 2021.

Bolivarian revolution and Black liberation

first_imgPortland’s Hands Off Venezuela PDX sponsored a Skype teach-in on Aug. 17 with Dr. Layla Brown-Vincent, an assistant professor of Africana Studies at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, who spoke about the role of racism in Bolivarian Venezuela to a room of 25 Oregonians. She said, “Just as Haiti was a stronghold of Black liberation in the late 18th and 19th centuries, and Cuba became a beacon of global struggle for Black/African liberation in the 20th century, Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution … is the most earnest attempt to facilitate Black liberation of our time.” Dr. Layla Brown-Vincent is an assistant professor of Africana Studies at the University of Massachusetts in Boston.Brown-Vincent recalled the 2017 murder of Orlando Figuera, a 21-year-old grocery worker, caught in the middle of opposition protesters in Venezuela. Figuera was doused with gasoline and burned to death while right-wing white supremacists yelled: “Hey Black guy, are you a Chavista? You see what happens to Chavistas?” She noted that nearly 54 percent of Venezuela’s citizens are of discernible African ancestry. “Afro-descended people’s realities have become more visible since 2002, and their realities increasingly inform the political rhetoric/agenda of the Bolivarian Revolution, making Blackness synonymous with the people, socialism and Chavismo—​while whiteness is synonymous with capitalist exploitation, anti-Blackness and the anti-people counterrevolution led by the opposition.”Brown-Vincent called opposition leader Juan Guaidó a white supremist who is part of the U.S.-led drive to maintain racial capitalism across the globe. Backed by the U.S., Guaidó attempted to declare himself president of Venezuela in January.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
