    Huge Tonga volcanic eruption caused ‘significant damage’

    A massive volcanic eruption in Tonga sending tsunami waves into the Pacific has caused "significant damage" to the island nation's capital and blanketed it in dust, but the full extent was not apparent with communications still cut on Sunday.

    Saturday's eruption was so powerful it was recorded around the world and triggered a tsunami that inundated Pacific coasts from Japan to the United States.

    The capital Nuku'alofa suffered "significant" damage, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, adding there were no reports of injuries or deaths but a full assessment was not yet possible with communication lines down. .

    "The tsunami has had a significant impact on the beach on the north side of Nuku'alofa with boats and large rocks washed away," Ardern said after contacting the New Zealand embassy in Tonga.

    "Nuku'alofa is covered in a thick layer of volcanic dust, but conditions are otherwise calm and stable."

    Tonga needed water supplies, he said: "The ash cloud has caused pollution."

    There has been no information about damage to the outer islands and New Zealand will send an air force reconnaissance plane "as soon as atmospheric conditions allow," the country's Defense Force tweeted.

    "We are working hard to see how we can help our Pacific neighbors after the volcanic eruption near Tonga."

    Tonga has also accepted Canberra's offer to send a surveillance flight, Australia's foreign office said, adding that it too is immediately ready to supply "critical humanitarian supplies".

    The United States was "deeply concerned about the people of Tonga," Secretary of State Antony Blinken said, pledging support for the island nation.

    A 1.2-meter wave swept the coast of Tonga's capital and residents reported fleeing to higher ground, leaving houses inundated, some with structural damage, as small stones and ash fell from the sky.

    “It was huge, the ground was shaking, our house was shaking. It came in waves. My younger brother thought the bombs were exploding nearby,” resident Mere Taufa told the Stuff news website on Saturday.

    She said water filled her house minutes later and she saw the wall of a neighboring house collapse.

    'People shouting'
    “We knew right away it was a tsunami. Just water gushing into our house,” Taufa said.

    "You could hear screaming everywhere, people screaming for safety, for everyone to get to higher ground."

    According to reports, King Tupou VI of Tonga was evacuated from the Royal Palace in Nuku'alofa and taken by police convoy to a villa well away from the coast.

    Dramatic satellite images showed the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai volcano's long, rumbling eruption spewing smoke and ash into the air, with a thunderous roar heard 6,000 miles (10,000 kilometers) away in Alaska.

    The eruption triggered tsunamis in the Pacific with waves of 1.74 meters (five and a half feet) measured in Chanaral, Chile, more than 10,000 kilometers away, and smaller waves along the Pacific coast from Alaska to Mexico. .

    In California, the city of Santa Cruz was flooded by a tsunami-generated storm surge, videos retweeted by the US National Weather Service showed.

    Peru closed 22 ports as a precautionary measure as waves of around 1.2 meters (four feet) hit Japan's Pacific coast.

    At 0300 GMT on Sunday, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said the threat of the eruption had passed.

    heard in alaska
    The US Geological Survey recorded Saturday's eruption as equivalent to a magnitude 5.8 earthquake at zero depth.

    The volcano's eruption lasted at least eight minutes and sent plumes of gas, ash and smoke several kilometers into the air.

    New Zealand scientist Marco Brenna, a senior lecturer at the University of Otago's School of Geology, described the eruption's impact as "relatively minor" but said another eruption with a much larger impact could not be ruled out.

    The eruption was so powerful that it was even heard in Alaska, the UAF Geophysical Institute tweeted.

    “A portion of the pressure signal in Alaska was in the audible range. The large signal is not that surprising considering the scale of the eruption, but the audible aspect is quite unique," he said, quoting Alaska Volcano Observatory scientist David Fee.

    "Remember only a couple of other volcanic eruptions that did something like this: Krakatau and Novarupta," he tweeted. This referred to the 19th century eruption of Indonesia's Krakatau and Alaska's Novarupta, the most powerful volcanic eruption of the 20th century.

    Scotland's Fife weather station tweeted that it was "just amazing to think of the power a shock wave can send around the world" after the eruptions produced a jump in its atmospheric pressure graph.

    Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai, which is about 65 kilometers north of Nuku'alofa, has a history of volatility.

    In recent years, it broke through sea level during a 2009 eruption, while in 2015 it spewed so many large rocks and ash into the air that when they settled, a new island had formed two kilometers long by one kilometer wide and 100 meters. meters high.

    Chile inflation at a 14-year high

    Chile posted 7.2 percent inflation in 2021, the highest level in 14 years, statistics agency INE said on Friday.

    For the month of December, the figure was 0.8 percent higher than expected, driven by higher transportation and food prices.

    Annual inflation was much higher than the Central Bank's goal of 3.0 percent, the level of the previous year.

    The price hikes were driven in part by increased public spending fueled by government grants amounting to about $ 3 billion to stimulate a pandemic-ravaged economy, and individual withdrawals from private pension funds totaling $ 50. billion.

    The withdrawals, three in total, were approved by Congress in response to strong public pressure, a short-term poverty alleviation measure that will leave millions of Chileans with less money to retire.

    The Central Bank of Chile has already raised interest rates twice since October, by 1.25 percentage points each time.

    The government expects GDP to have expanded about 11.5 percent in 2021 compared to a 5.8 percent drop in 2020.

    In other parts of Latin America, inflation is more than 10 percent in the economic giant Brazil, while in Argentina it hovers around 50 percent.

    Chile to give fourth Covid-19 vaccine dose

    Chile will offer its citizens a fourth dose of coronavirus vaccine starting in February, starting with the high-risk categories, announced President Sebastián Piñera.

    "The main concern and priority is to protect the life and health of our compatriots," he said Thursday at an event to commemorate a year since Chile launched its Covid-19 vaccination campaign.

    The first to receive the booster vaccine will be healthcare workers, the elderly, and people with chronic illnesses.

    The country already has the required doses, said Piñera.

    Health Minister Enrique Paris said the decision was made when studies showed that levels of antibodies that fight viruses drop six months after the last dose.

    Chile has so far administered at least two doses of vaccine to some 16.5 million of its 19.2 million inhabitants, more than 86 percent.

    The country has registered more than 1.7 million coronavirus infections and 38,954 deaths, 54 in the last 24 hours.

    Since the beginning of December, the vaccination campaign has been expanded to include children as young as three years old.

    At least two other countries, Israel and Brazil, have announced campaigns to give a fourth injection to their immunosuppressed population.

    Leftist Gabriel Boric, a millennial president for a new Chile

    Leftist legislator Gabriel Boric, 35, became the youngest president in Chilean history on Sunday with a promise to install a "welfare state" in one of the most unequal countries in the world.

    The former student activist has just reached the minimum age required to run for the presidential race, seven years after being elected to his first political office as a member of the Chilean Chamber of Deputies.

    On Sunday, he prevailed over his far-right rival José Antonio Kast, an ultra-conservative lawyer who had promised to cut taxes and social spending in a country rocked in 2019 by deadly mass protests for a more just and equal society.

    Boric has promised to relegate "to the grave" Chile's neoliberal economic model, which dates back to the era of dictator Augusto Pinochet and is seen as an outcast of the working and poor classes.

    And he promised to create "a welfare state so that everyone has the same rights no matter how much money they have in their wallet."

    Chile has one of the largest income gaps in the world. One percent of its population owns 25 percent of the wealth, according to a UN agency.

    People are heavily in debt and have to pay in full or in part for education and health care. Pensions are made up entirely of private savings.

    'Tremendously fractured'
    "If Chile was the cradle of neoliberalism in Latin America, it will also be its grave," said Boric in the electoral campaign.

    The millennial was the candidate of the Approve Dignity coalition that includes the Communist Party of Chile, an association that caused discomfort to many voters in a country that deeply distrusts communist doctrine.

    But he has laughed at the fears and told AFP in a message to investors in October "that it is not possible to do business or for a country to grow when a society is tremendously fractured, as in Chile."

    Boric has promised to reduce the work week from 45 to 40 hours, promote "green development" and create 500,000 jobs for women.

    He has also committed to reforming Chile's pension and health systems to promote access for the poor.

    Boric backed the 2019 anti-government revolt that resulted in dozens of deaths in clashes with the police and sparked a referendum that resulted in a process to rewrite Chile's business-friendly dictatorship-era constitution.

    'Let's do the impossible'
    In 2011, he led student protests over free schooling.

    His detractors say Boric has no political experience and he himself has admitted that he has "a lot to learn."

    But supporters say his lack of ties to the traditional ruling elite, increasingly viewed with hostility, counts in his favor.

    Boric, of Croatian and Catalan descent, has ditched the long, unkempt mane of his activist days, seeking to build a more consensual and moderate image.

    But although he has adopted jackets, he avoids ties and does not try to hide his tattoos.

    Unlike Kast, she supports same-sex marriage and the right to abortion.

    Boric was born in Punta Arenas in the extreme south of Chile. He is the oldest of three siblings and moved to the capital to study law, although he never took his bar exam.

    He is single, has no children, and is an avid reader of poetry and history.

    His father, Luis Boric, told AFP this week that the new president had been politically minded from a young age, painting messages such as "let's face it, let's do the impossible" and "reason is strength" on his bedroom wall. childhood.

    The 75-year-old described his son as "consistent" and as someone who "knows how to listen."

    “He wants to bring about a real change in society. He wants to eliminate many injustices that we have today and he deeply believes in it, and that will give him the strength to carry out that task (of being president), I have no doubt ”.

    Countries convene for pandemic treaty talks

    The nations of the world are meeting Monday to discuss whether they should pursue a pandemic treaty outlining how to handle the next crisis, which experts fear is only a matter of time.


    The three-day meeting at the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva comes with the planet still besieged by Covid-19, almost two years after the first recorded cases.

    Economic turmoil and the loss of millions of lives have prompted calls for new international defenses strong enough to prevent a repeat disaster.

    “We will have more pandemics in the future. The question is not if, but when, ”Jaouad Mahjour, WHO's deputy director-general for emergency preparedness, told reporters.

    The World Health Assembly, WHO's decision-making body comprising all 194 member states, is holding an unprecedented special session to consider the development of a new agreement on pandemic preparedness and response.

    The meeting should conclude with a resolution on the way forward. The desired result, be it a treatise or other formulation, will come later, possibly in 2024.

    But it remains uncertain how far countries are willing to go to agree on binding terms on how to prepare for the next outbreak and effective systems to eradicate it.

    - Fast regulations or stricter treaty? The existing International Health Regulations were simply not designed to handle pandemics on the Covid-19 scale, or to ensure fairness and preparedness, Mahjour said. In fact, the word 'pandemic' does not even appear in the texts.

    Although their entry into force is faster, the scope of what can be done through regulations is much more limited than that of a treaty.

    WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus wants a treaty to end the unfortunate cycle of "neglect and panic."

    "The ongoing chaos of this pandemic only underscores why the world needs an ironclad global agreement to set the rules," he said Wednesday.

    The United States is believed to be less interested in talking about a treaty and more focused on agreeing content with a quick impact.

    Yet more than 70 countries are backing a treaty so far, the health ministers of 32 of them said in a joint article.

    The ministers, from nations such as Britain, Chile, Germany, Italy, Kenya, South Korea, Spain, Thailand and Turkey, said a treaty was "the only substantial proposal" that could guarantee a "rapid, joint, effective global response. and equitable. ”To future outbreaks.

    "We cannot wait for the next crisis before acting," they wrote.

    Ensuring equitable access to vaccines, tests and treatments is a key theme of the special session for many African countries that lack the tools to fight this pandemic.

    "Whatever we do, we need continued commitment at the highest political level going forward," said a European diplomat, adding: "We need a legally binding instrument to structure this ... it is too important."

    Steve Solomon, the WHO legal director, told reporters that there were "good reasons to believe" that a collective way forward could be found.

    - 'Go ahead' -The Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response, convened to analyze the failures in the fight against Covid-19, reported its findings and recommendations in May. He proposed establishing a WHO framework convention.

    Under that treaty format, most of it could be agreed quickly and then elements could be added to the framework over time.

    “This is not something that should be debated incessantly. Please keep going, ”said panel co-chair Helen Clark, former Prime Minister of New Zealand on Monday.

    After the 74th World Health Assembly in May, a working group was created to find common ground before the special session. He is rushing to finalize a draft resolution for the session to discuss.

    It is moving towards proposing an intergovernmental negotiating body to begin drafting and negotiating on the basis of the results of the special session.

    Mahjour said the recommendations under discussion fall into four categories: equity; governance and leadership; financing, nationally and internationally; and systems and tools to respond to global health crises.

    "There is some urgency ... because the world cannot afford to have another pandemic that the world is not prepared for," Mahjour said.

    Chile’s Pinera: the president defeated by social upheaval

    Chile’s President Sebastian Pinera modernized the political right to distance it from the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship, but a social crisis that broke out in 2019 will see him leave power with his popularity in tatters.

    The billionaire leader, 71, who cannot stand for reelection in Sunday’s voting, has served two non-consecutive mandates.

    His second term, which ends in March, has been beset by numerous problems, not least the coronavirus pandemic.

    But he has also had to deal with a social uprising, accusations of graft and an impeachment bid that was quashed on Tuesday by the Senate.

    “The morning after the social outbreak was the end of the Pinera government politically and in terms of influence,” elections analyst Axel Callis told AFP.

    Pinera’s early attempts to calm protests against social injustice were at best clumsy.

    A rich businessman seen as the embodiment of the country’s economic, political and institutional injustices, Pinera’s martial tone and early decision to deploy the military proved disastrous.

    Not long beforehand, he had described Chile as an “oasis” in Latin America due to its robust economy and political stability.

    Two weeks later, two million Chileans took to the streets demanding change to the country’s neo-liberal model.

    The unprecedented protests convinced parliament to agree to hold a referendum on changing the country’s dictatorship-era constitution — and a year later the people voted overwhelmingly (78 percent) in favor of change.

    Pinera, who failed to either propose or support the move, again appeared out of touch with the people he governed.

    “What happened was a change in the axis of power,” said Callis.

    “In one way or another, a parliamentary system was installed, without the corresponding institutionality — Chile is a presidential system — and everything in terms of relevant politics started happening in parliament.”

    The executive found itself confined to the back benches and Pinera “ceased to be a valued, strategic or significant actor.”

    Popularity plunge
    The pandemic could not have hit at a worse time.

    While Chile can pride itself on its rapid vaccine roll-out — 90 percent of those eligibles amongst the 19 million population are fully immunized — the government’s procrastination in distributing aid prevented Pinera from regaining the people’s trust.

    Even less so his implication in the Pandora Papers, suspected of a conflict of interests over the sale of a mine by members of his family to a close friend, and completed in a tax haven.

    While the Senate blocked opposition attempts to impeach Pinera, he remains the subject of a graft investigation.

    With five months left of his term, Pinera’s popularity has plunged to its lowest level at 12 percent, compared to 50 percent when he ended his first term in 2014.

    In 2010, the Harvard-educated economist convinced the electorate that his personal success in business — according to Forbes in 2018, Pineras was worth $2.8 billion — could be transferred to the benefit of society.

    He managed to bring back to power a revamped right-wing that had rid itself of the baggage of being associated with Pinochet’s dictatorship.

    During his first term he branded civilian defenders of the dictatorship as “passive accomplices” and closed a special jail set up for human rights abusers.

    “Pinera wanted to represent a modern, democratic right-wing,” Claudia Heiss, a professor of political sciences at the University of Chile, told AFP.

    “He wanted to definitively end the transition” to democracy and “end the divisions that came from the dictatorship.”

    But his second mandate saw him “oscillate between two versions” of democracy, leaving him in “an ambiguous position,” notably when it came to changing the constitution.

    “He was never very clear … he never wanted to say he was for or against” changing the constitution, said Heiss.

    She says this fence-sitting served only to weaken the right-wing and facilitate the rise of far-right presidential candidate Jose Antonio Kast, a harsh critic of Pinera’s.

    Polls even predict Kast will deny Pinera’s favoured candidate Sebastian Sichel a place in the second round run-off.

    In any case, the damage done to Chile’s right-wing under Pinera has resulted in left-wing candidate Gabriel Boric being the election favourite.

    “Other finalists in this category include Great Britain's Brighton Stout and Canada's Double Dutch Stout,” he added.

    He also said that Africa has its role in the history of beer, with ancient Egypt playing a key role in the history of beer evolution 500 years ago.
