In my view it is entirely legitimate for Almagro to have invoked the Democratic Charter with respect to Venezuela. However, I felt he did it about a year too soon
A devastating 400-page report details how DEA and State Department officials lied to or obstructed superiors and investigators, including the U.S. ambassador and Congress, about controversial use-of-deadly-force incidents during 2012 counter-drug operations in Honduras.
After eliminating Brazilian legislators accused of corruption, then those “who don’t show up for debates, don’t vote or don’t sponsor legislation,” The Globe and Mail “wound up with just a dozen names” and interviewed five of them for their opinions about what it would take to fix Brazil’s endemic corruption.
The Cochabamba-based NGO brought to Bolivia a group of Colombian coca-growers involved in their country’s post-peace accord effort to negotiate voluntary crop eradication. This report looks at some lessons the group could take from Bolivia’s experience, including “how bringing community members to the fore of policy formulation
and eliminating eradication as a requirement for aid can improve conditions in coca growing areas.”
David attends a large opposition march in Caracas and finds an encouraging degree of unity. He is concerned, though, by a lack of poorer participants and at least a tacit acceptance of violent tactics.
This is a shamefully mistitled article–the former guerrillas profiled here are working for peace in Cali’s crime-ridden slums, and are “endangered,” not “dangerous.” The article and videos themselves, though, offer a good glimpse into the challenges of ex-combatants’ reintegration, and of securing communities of displaced people, like Cali’s vast Aguablanca neighborhood.
I will be difficult to contact today. (How to contact me)
I’m taking the day off, as my daughter competes all day in the preliminary rounds of the National Spelling Bee outside Washington. I’ll be cheering her on (or consoling her) and spending little time on my phone and computer.

It’s a complicated day, schedule-wise: my daughter has a few hours of preliminary competition at the National Spelling Bee, then I’ll be in the office for a few hours of meetings (a foundation, a journalist). Any other time will be spent with the family here at the Spelling Bee venue, or tucked away doing a bit of writing. I may not be able to respond immediately to any effort to get in touch with me, and tomorrow may be similar.
Every week seems to bring reports of a new atrocity committed against indigenous people in some remote part of the country. But nothing seems to shock our society anymore

Today is a national holiday in the United States. Bizarrely, I’m writing from a hotel about 20 minutes’ drive from home: my daughter is in the National Spelling Bee, an event that lasts all week. Some days this week, I’ll probably be home: I can’t imagine staying in this hotel when we have a perfectly good house nearby with better internet and a fridge full of food. But today, with the opening ceremonies coming and a daughter who is thrilled to be competing, we’re spending Memorial Day at the event.
Bizarrely, I’m writing from a hotel room about 20 minutes from my house. My daughter is one of 290 contestants in the National Spelling Bee. As she’s representing the District of Columbia, we’ve come the shortest distance to compete. It’s nice, though, that we’ve been given a hotel room at the site of the event, just like all the other kids.
After Monday, which is a national holiday in the United States, I’ll be splitting my time this week between the Spelling Bee, our home, and the office. On the calendar I have meetings with funders and several meetings on Capitol Hill to discuss what we’re working on with legislative staff. I’ll post things here when I get a chance.
