In the Dominican Republic, undocumented Haitian immigrants and Dominicans of Haitian descent now face mass deportation unless they can present documentation of their legal residential status. June 17, 2015, was the deadline for compliance.

Haiti, with a population of over 9.9 million, is a member state of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The Dominican Republic, with a population of over ten million, has CARICOM Observer status. In 2004, the country became a fully integrated member of the Central American Free Trade Agreement, since known as CAFTA-DR.

In September 2013, a Constitutional Tribunal ruling changed the DR’s citizenship policy. The ruling revoked automatic citizenship granted to children born to immigrants, as far back as 1929, throwing into a quagmire almost a quarter-million Dominicans, 83 percent of Haitian descent. Then in May 2014, the DR passed a law regulating…

On Care for Our Common Home

[W]e need only take a frank look at the facts to see that our common home is falling into serious disrepair… The natural environment is a collective good, the patrimony of all humanity and the responsibility of everyone… Unless citizens control political power – national, regional and municipal – it will not be possible to control damage to the environment.

B.B. King Tribute Event

Originally posted on The Politics of Writing:

Today the city of Memphis put on a tribute concert in W.C. Handy Park just off Beale Street for the late B.B. King. There was a light rain up until 11 a.m. when the concert started, then picking up later in the show with a brief downpour. The rain didn’t seem to bother the lighthearted crowd, in fact a few of them were dancing in the rain in front of the stage. I was lucky enough to get a second row seat in front of the stage, seeing how the first row was reserved for family and friends of B.B.
