    The Fight Over Chile's Marine Resources

    The Fight Over Chile's Marine Resources

    The icy waters of the South Pacific have moved center stage in a debate over how to manage fisheries once thought inexhaustible.

    For decades the commercial fishing industry has systematically decimated fish populations.

    Last December, Chile's government passed a controversial fisheries law that included dubious conservation measures, while awarding the largest share of the most lucrative fisheries—including jack mackerel and hake—to four national conglomerates.

    Independent fishermen, known as artisans, say the law turns the country’s marine resources into a private oligopoly—a nautical version of Latin America's epic land inequality.

    Chile: Pressure Builds with Upcoming Elections

    Chile: Pressure Builds with Upcoming Elections

    Hundreds of thousands of Chilean students are taking part in massive protests against failing public schools, expensive private schools, non-affordable loans and an unresponsive government. The protests began in 2011 to demand change. Violence between police and the students is common with protestors tearing down street signs and destroying buses while police use tear gas and night sticks in response. Meanwhile, newspapers in Chile give the government reason to ignore what is happening.

    The Seris Struggle to Maintain Their Resource

    The Seris Struggle to Maintain Their Resource

    The Seri people of the eastern Sonoran desert have been fighting for their survival for 100 years. Now, only 800 remain on the coast, maintaining their traditions and fishing. There are two communities and they seem to be in constant competition. Plus, even though their land is protected by law, the people still feel that their territory is under attack, mainly from large industrial trawlers. To defend themselves and their land, the Seri have begun boarding the large boats and demanding a cut of their haul. Outsiders see it as piracy, but the Seri see it as a mode of survival.

    Nepal is currently facing an oral healthcare crisis. Fifty-eight percent of children and 69% of adults in the country suffer from dental caries—i.e. bacterial tooth decay. This can lead to infections, gum disease, and chronic pain as well as heart disease and diabetes. Laura Spero came to Nepal to teach English but ended up staying to implement oral health care education and treatment to 36 thousand Nepalis in five villages.

    In Masaka, Nigeria, the fight to prevent the transmission of HIV edges on at a small, primary health care center. "Mentoring Mothers" is a support group for pregnant women and new mothers living with HIV. The goal of the group is to provide women with assistance, insight, and a sort of sisterhood while they face the difficulties that come with living with HIV while carrying or caring for a child.
