Pope begins trip in Ecuador
with a colorful reception

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Pope Francis, the first South American pontiff, has returned to that continent to begin an eight-day visit to Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay.

The 78-year-old Jesuit pope landed in Ecuador's capital, Quito, Sunday afternoon on the first leg of his visit. At the airport, he was greeted by government and church dignitaries, as well as colorfully dressed children and adults waving the papal flag and standing on either side of a long red carpet.

Huge crowds also gathered along the route from the airport to the papal nuncio's residence, where Francis will be staying.

Francis is skipping his native Argentina on the trip, but plans to head to his homeland next year. It is his ninth trip abroad since assuming the papacy more than two years ago.

As he left Rome, Francis said he wanted to emphasize the plight of impoverished people in the three countries he is visiting, "especially children in need, the elderly, the sick, the imprisoned, the poor, those who are victims of this throwaway culture."

The Roman Catholic Church has about 1.2 billion followers, with a large portion of them in Latin America. Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay are three of South America's poorest and smallest countries.

Ecuador has been hit in recent weeks with anti-government demonstrations, protests aimed partly at the call by embattled President Rafael Correa for increased inheritance taxes. Protest leaders have called for a moratorium during the papal visit out of deference to Francis.

The pope was planning to celebrate a Mass in eight languages early today. Later in the trip, he is planning a visit at a violent Bolivian prison, a meeting with Bolivian trash collectors and a stop at a flood-prone Paraguayan shantytown.


Greek voters veto austerity,
and nation's status uncertain


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Greek voters have overwhelmingly rejected a plan to impose more austerity measures on them in exchange for new bailout loans for the government in Athens.

With 87 percent of the votes counted from Sunday's referendum, more than 60 percent of voters have rebuffed warnings from European leaders that ignoring their calls for more austerity could force the country from the 19-nation euro currency bloc.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who had urged a no vote said after the polling, "Today we celebrate the victory of democracy."

The scale of the victory is seen as an emphatic vote of confidence in Tsipras. In a televised address after early results were announced he thanked voters for making a generous choice. “However, I'm fully conscious that the mandate you have given me is not a mandate against Europe, but a mandate to find a sustainable solution with Europe that will take us out of the vicious cycle of austerity,” he added.

The opposition accused Tsipras of jeopardizing the country's membership in the 19-nation club that uses the euro. Greek opposition leader Antonis Samaras announced his resignation, after his New Democracy Party had urged a yes vote in the referendum.

Whether the creditors will be willing to pull back on their austerity demands and approve more bailout money for Greece is far from certain.  As Athens defaulted on a $1.8 billion loan payment due the International Monetary Fund last week, European leaders said a negative vote would signal that Greece wants to leave the eurozone and divorce itself politically from Europe.

Thousands of Greeks gathered in Athens' main square Sunday night to cheer the apparent outcome of the referendum, with many chanting "No, no!"

Nearly 10 million people were registered to vote in the referendum and officials said more than half that number may actually have voted.

The European Commission says it respects the result of the Greece referendum, after Greek voters on Sunday overwhelmingly rejected the terms of a bailout.

European Council President Donald Tusk called a summit of eurozone leaders for Tuesday to discuss the situation.

The week leading up to Sunday's referendum has been a miserable one for most Greeks.

Banks put strict limits on withdrawals to avoid running out of funds, although ATMs ran out of cash several times. Supermarkets are fast running out of basic foods. Storekeepers are reluctant to restock shelves because of the uncertainty of how they would be able to pay for the supplies.


Seven new cultural sites
added to world heritage list

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

The U.N. World Heritage Committee, meeting in Germany, said Saturday that it had designated seven cultural sites for addition to its World Heritage List.

Two of the sites are in Iran and one each is in China, Singapore, the Republic of Korea, Mongolia and France.

The U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization bestows the designation to recognize global significance and to help in preservation.

The 39th session of the committee, chaired by German Minister of State Maria Böhmer, was to vote in Bonn on 31 other nominations.

In the United States, the San Antonio Missions in Texas, San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, Nuestra Señora de La Purisima Conception de Acuña, San Francisco de La Espada, San Antonio de Valero and San Juan Capistrano, are recommended for inscription this year on the World Heritage List. The San Antonio de Valero church is known as the  Alamo where Texans put up an historic fight against the Mexican army.

The five missions of the so-called Spanish frontier were established by Catholic religious orders in the 17th and 18th centuries to spread Christianity among the locals.

They would be the first World Heritage sites in the state of Texas and the 22nd designation in the United States.

The committee has approved the inscription on the World Heritage List of more than 1,000 sites in more than 160 countries worldwide, from the Taj Mahal to Australia's Great Barrier Reef to Stonehenge in England.


Wayback Machine is banned
over a pro-jihad Web site


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Internet users in Russia will no longer be able to access a massive database of cached Web pages, apparently due to one single Web site authorities in Moscow don’t like.

Russia’s attorney general has ordered blockage of the site, known as The Wayback Machine, citing legislation that bans minors from accessing sites that contain pornography, sexual abuse or extremist activities.

The Wayback Machine stores cached images of Web pages around the world going back as far as 1996. The archives contain almost 500 billion stored images.

The Kremlin says the unprecedented block is needed to keep dangerous information from reaching minors online. But Russian free speech activists argue the ban is just the latest move by Moscow to erase anything on the web it finds objectionable.

According to Rublacklist.net, a censorship monitoring project run by a group known as the Russian Pirate Party, the block is due to a single cached Web page called “Solitary Jihad in Russia.” The page contains discussion of partisan resistance, and states that Islamic sharia law must be instituted all across the world.

The targeted Web site was blocked by the Russian Internet agency Roskomnadzor in June, citing the need to protect minors.

But the Wayback Machine still contains an earlier snapshot of the Web page and because it uses the HTTPS encrypted protocol, Russian authorities said they had no choice but to ban the Wayback Machine. Rublacklist.net reports access to the Wayback Machine was cut at the end of June.

The San Francisco-based non-profit Internet Archive hosts the Wayback Machine. While it’s not the largest collection of cached webpages, Google estimates it has over 35 trillion, it remains popular with researchers and others for offering snapshots of what Web sites looked like at various points in the past.

Because it captures screenshots from Web pages all over the world, the Wayback Machine also gives readers a chance to read news reports from all over the world in the past, and compare them with their more local media. With the Wayback block, that information is now inaccessible to most Russians.

Over the last year, Moscow has aggressively escalated its censorship of the Internet.

In May, Roskomnadzor sent letters to the U.S.-based web services Twitter, Facebook, and Google requesting large amounts of private information on Russians who use their services and demanding various pages deemed illegal for advocating unsanctioned protests in Russia be permanently taken down.

Sites run by opposition leaders Garry Kasparov and Alexei Navalny and independent media like the Ekho Moskvy radio station and Grani newspaper have also been banned.

Just this week, Vitaly Milonov, a prominent member of the Russian Duma, called for Facebook to be completely banned, due to an app that supporters of the same-sex marriage use to apply a rainbow filter to their profile pictures.

Vice of America photo
The  Hermione replica flies dual flags

French replica participates
in New York July 4 activities

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

A replica of the French warship that brought the Marquis de Lafayette to George Washington with news of French aid in 1780 is in New York as part of Independence Day celebrations.

The ship will be touring the Eastern Seaboard until mid-July.

The ship played a key role in the American colonists’ bid for freedom from England, historians say.

On July 4, 1776, 13 American colonies at war with Britain formed a new nation. As the war unfolded in later years, the Americans might have lost their revolution if not for the news of French help from the Hermione.

The French aristocrat Lafayette had volunteered to fight with the Continental Army and became friends with Washington.

Lafayette went back to France and persuaded King Louis XVI to provide men and ships to help the Americans. He returned on the Hermione with news that French reinforcements were on their way.

The 65-meter-long frigate is the kind of warship seen in old paintings – made of oak, with huge billowing sails, cannons bristling from the deck, and complex rope rigging reaching a mast about 50 meters high

Almost 80 people make up the predominately French crew of the replica. Their average age is 27. Some are professional sailors but most are volunteers, including 32-year-old Aurore Le Vilain.

During the Hermione’s recent stopover in Alexandria, Virginia, outside Washington, Ms. Le Vilain said she had to get over her fear of heights to climb the rigging to adjust the sails.

When the ship is at sea, "it’s like a pendulum," she said. "You’re going from one side to another and you still have to keep working."

Another crew member, Alice Bru, 34, had never sailed and found the trip a challenge.

"We have more than 200 ropes and each has a different use," she said. "And it’s physically difficult because everything is heavy."

Although the original Hermione was constructed in 11 months in the port town of Rochefort, France, it took 17 years for the replica to be built in the same port. 

Rochefort resident Alain Lambert flew to Virginia to tour the Hermione on American soil and said it had been exciting to watch the changes, over the years, as the ship took shape in his hometown.

Dressed as an American revolutionary soldier while touring the vessel, Alexandria resident Kon Gojnycz was impressed that the shipbuilders used many 18th-century techniques.

The cannons were actually recast at the same factory that made guns for the Hermione and the French navy back in the 1770s, he said.

The replica is as authentic as possible, said Bruno Gravellier, the ship’s superintendent, who, at 68, is the oldest sailor on board.

But there are a few concessions to the 21st century, he said, including a kitchen, engines for safety and a power generator.

One area is noticeably different from the original.

“In the place where we have showers and toilets, they had hundreds of live sheep,” he said of the original ship. “It must have smelled quite different.”

What hasn’t changed are the cramped quarters where the crew sleeps in hammocks, said 22-year-old history student Adam Hodges-LeClair, one of the few Americans on the crew.

“You have some moments when people are very close,” he said. “Potentially, you need your space.  At the same time, it’s nice to have support whenever you’re doing a maneuver.”


Trio of journalists dead
in three Mexican locations


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Media rights groups are calling on Mexican authorities to thoroughly investigate the recent murders of three journalists in one week in the states of Oaxaca, Veracruz and Guanajuato.

"We are appalled by all these murders of journalists in Mexico," said Lucie Morillon, Reporters Without Borders program director. "Three deaths in a week — when will the violence stop?"

Ms. Morillon called on authorities in the three states "to ensure that impartial, independent and thorough investigations are carried out and that those responsible for these despicable crimes are arrested."

Thursday journalist Filadelfo Sanchez Sarmiento was gunned down by two men as he was leaving radio station La Favorita in Maiahuatlan de Porfirio Diaz in southern Oaxaca state.

Reporters Without Borders said Sanchez Sarmiento had received death threats.

"Mexican authorities must thoroughly investigate this killing and establish a motive, including any possible connection of journalism and bring those responsible to justice," said Carlos Lauria, Committee to Protect Journalists senior Americas program coordinator.

"This crime must not become one of the dozens of unsolved journalist murders in Mexico, which has one of the worst impunity rates in the world," Lauria said.

Elsewhere Thursday, Reporters Without Borders says the body of Juan Mendoza Delgado, a local news Web site editor in Medellin de Bravo, in the eastern state of Veracruz, was found in a morgue, a day after he was reported missing. The media group says Mendoza Delgado was reported to have been run over by a car.

Days before Mendoza Delgado's death, Veracruz Gov. Javier Duarte had warned journalists to behave themselves and had accused them of being linked to organized crime.

In the central state of Guanajuato on June 26, the body of Gerardo Nieto Alvarez, the editor of El Tabano, a local newspaper was found in Comonfort with a neck wound.

Reporters Without Borders reports the prosecutor in charge of investigating Nieto Alvarez's death immediately ruled out any possibility of a link with his journalism.

However, the journalist's family told the rights group that they are convinced he was killed because of his work.

Nieto Alvarez's son told the media rights group, "My father's laptop has disappeared. It contained all the information he was going to publish. The prosecutor has not said anything about that."

Three other journalists have been killed so far this year in Mexico.

Reporters Without Borders says Mexico is the Western Hemisphere's deadliest country for journalists in 2015 and ranks it 148 out of 180 countries in its current press freedom index.

Mexico was ranked seventh on CPJ's 2014 Impunity Index, which spotlights countries where journalists are slain and the killers go free.
