The boys' youth group used to send care packages there, which had to be routed thru Mexico first due to embargoes (even though nothing was being sold).  You wouldn't believe how much the Cuban people appreciated simple things like soap bars.

Probably most or all of the guys in that youth group will carry that memory of helping others, with then throughout their lives, which is good.

From Jim's headlines thread a couple of days ago:

UN: Millions in Afghanistan face hunger due to drought

Placing the Afghani people on the prayer list. 

Wikipedia explains that Afghanistan is believed by scientists to have been the ancient habitation of humans as far back as 50,000 years, with a wealth of archeological sites comparable to those in Egypt.  This land of deserts and mountains has been fought over as a strategic and economic gateway between East and West for centuries, with a tiny northeastern portion actually touching China.  This competition that has caught the Afghani people in the middle has ironically been referred to as "The Great Game."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Game

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghanistan



Nearly 100% of Afghanis are at least nominally Muslim, the vast majority adhering to the Sunni branch, with the wife of the President being Christian.  Though the nation is ethnically diverse, its largest population is the Pashtun people, who geographically extend well across the border with Pakistan and even into India.

Afghanistan is a largely rural nation, with 78% of the population living outside of urban areas.  The predominantly agrarian lifestyle, however, does not easily translate into an abundance of food due to the amount of arid land outside the rainy season.  Though billions of dollars of development funds have been directed at the nation, they have primarily been channeled toward other projects than irrigation, which is badly needed in the driest parts of Afghanistan. 

The majority of large cities lie in the eastern 2/3 of the country, especially in the northeast:

https://positivity.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/map-afghanistan-cities.gifin the northeast:



No wonder the urban population has congregated in the northeast, with the notable exception of Kandahar: there lies the milder Mediterranean climate, while the remainder of the country experiences extremes associated with mountains and deserts:



The Hindu-Kush mountains in the northeastern part of the country, which comprise the westernmost range of the Himalayas, are seismically active, but the Zetas feel they are pinned down to the plate and will not rip apart.  The foothills extend well into the central part of Afghanistan, spread out like an outstretched hand with mountains forming a thumb and fingers.  The middle of the "hand" is sparsely populated.  It is the limited glacier run-off from these mountains that recharges rivers, watering the valleys below during snow melt.

http://www.physicalmapofasia.com/countries-of-asia/afghanistan/

With no railroads in Afghanistan, one of the main cargo transport methods is barge traffic on the Oxus (a.k.a Amu Darya) River along the northern boundary. 

Safe locations:

The south and eastern provinces bordering along Pakistan comprise a contentious militarized zone called the Durand Line that was artificially created by the British in the 19th Century, dividing much of the borderless Pashtun ethnic community across boundaries.  Subsequent Pakistani governments have sought to define their own borders internally, while outsiders feel bordering nations must be consulted.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durand_Line

The Zetas predict a deadly continental rip between Europe and Asia all along the western boundary of Afghanistan, curving around to include the western half of the northern border, then curving north along the bottom of the Himalayas between Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan ( http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx360.htm ).  That eliminates the entire west, as well as half of the north.  And as discussed above, the main urban population centers are located in the northeast, which is seismically active along with the rest of the Himalayas, with a 7.5 quake in 2015 that proved deadly only in densely populated cities with their masonry structures. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_2015_Hindu_Kush_earthquake

Rural dwellers in the highlands, in contrast, tend to live in either sod structures with thatched roofs, or in canvas yurts, neither of which would be likely to crush occupants.


Quote
A yurt is portable, can be heated in winter and cool in summer, and is a safe dwelling structure during an earthquake.

These facts, coupled with the dire lack of water in the nation resulting in famine and starvation, suggest that the safest plan may be for survivalists to migrate to the extreme northeastern panhandle of Afghanistan in the province of Badakhshan that juts toward China and Tajikistan, in the western Himalayan mountains called the Hindu Kush and the Pamir ranges.  China in recent years has agreed to formalize a written treaty relinquishing Tajikistan's northern portion of this area, and would no longer seem to pose a threat to this largely remote and historically ungovernable territory.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorno-Badakhshan_Autonomous_Region


Badakhshan is province #1 on this map.

From the panhandle, one has some options. 

1. First would be to remain in the panhandle of Afghanistan, called the Wakhan Corridor, inhabited by the autonomous and borderless Wakhi/Tajik/Pamiri people of Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and Tajikistan.  It is very isolated and rustic:



Quote
The corridor has been closed to regular traffic for over a century and there is no modern road. There is a rough road from Ishkashim to Sarhad-e Broghil built in the 1960s, but only rough paths beyond.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wakhi_people

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pamiris

 
Note the wide variety of hair and eye color among these Pamiri children


River valleys in the area provide arable land for agriculture, while grassy highlands provide grazing for livestock.

2. Head to the adjacent northern Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region of Tajikistan.  For those who would prefer the company of a village rather than complete pastoral isolation, there is the scenic town of Korugh in the mountains, with a population of 28,000 and an abundance of river water, being at the confluence of two rivers.  As remote as it may be, it happens to boast a rural University, as well as several schools and hospitals.  Temperatures during the year are similar to those here in Pennsylvania, but the climate is much dryer.



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khorugh


The masonry structures in this otherwise charming town replete with resources could be the one big drawback in an earthquake.

3. A third option from the far northeast of Afghanistan or southeastern Tajikistan would be to move still a short distance north into the Alay Mountains
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alay_Mountains



May the people of Afghanistan consider migrating to the extreme northeastern part of their own country or the adjacent territory directly to the north, away from ongoing strife, drought and famine, and toward the peaceful and autonomous fertile river valleys of the western Himalayas.  May they prepare traditional crush-proof dwelling places to ensure their safety during seismically active periods which will likely continue to affect the entire region.

Adding a link to CharityWatch / American Institute of Philanthropy, a watch-dog organization with 25 years of experience in assessing and rating the efficiency of charities (i.e. what percentage of donations actually reaches the need, rather than going toward executive salaries, etc.).

Placing Guatemala on the prayer list in the wake of Barb's articles on devastation from the explosion of Mt. Fuego.  Jim's Daily Headlines also linked a good article on the event: http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg105217.html#msg105217

https://www.sott.net/article/387426-Fuego-volcanic-eruption-in-Guatemala-buried-villages-under-meters-of-hot-ash

Here is an image from that website:



The death toll so far has been revised upward to 75 people - some of them children - and around 200 are still missing, according to the SOTT article.


https://www.rte.ie/news/world/2018/0605/968205-guatemala-volcano-deaths/

Guatemala, which lies between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea just below Mexico, is the most populous country in Central America.  It is now a representative democracy, according to the Wikipedia article on that nation, and in the heart of the Mayan civilization, which in modern times is comprised of 7 different tribes speaking 21 languages.


In this language map of Guatemala, Castilian means Spanish.

https://hiplatina.com/7-indigenous-mayan-cultures-of-guatemala/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guatemala

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_civilization



The Mayan people of Guatemala, who were highly literate, numerate and played organized sports in ancient times, experienced their first genocide when Spanish conquistadors exposed them to new diseases endemic to Europe, for which they had no established immunity.

Guatemala in the 20th Century, according to the article, was ruled by a series of dictatorships backed by the U.S. corporation Chiquita Banana, under its previous name United Fruit Company - the same corporation involved in Colombia and other nearby countries.  It's competitor, Dole Fruit Company, a.k.a. Standard Fruit, was similarly involved in the country's politics.



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_Fruit_Company

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Fruit_Company

The Mayans were largely exterminated or forced into exile between 1960 and 1996 in what was termed the Silent Holocaust, involving "extraordinary cruelty" against "mostly unarmed civilians" of between 440 and 620 villages, according to the reports below.  The genocidal campaigns against the Mayan people in the late 20th Century left the majority of indigenous children in the nation without one of their parents, and 25% without both parents.  Other massacres included the Mayan children themselves.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%ADo_Negro_massacres
 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guatemalan_genocide

https://guatemalangenocideproject.weebly.com/

https://cja.org/where-we-work/guatemala/

Two truth commissions published reports on the Mayan genocide in the 1990's: first the Guatemalan Catholic Church in 1998, followed by the U.N. in 1999, whose report is here:

https://www.aaas.org/sites/default/files/migrate/uploads/mos_en.pdf

Police documents of the genocides have been released to family members of those who were murdered and disappeared, and litigation continues in the efforts of the remaining Guatemalan Mayan people to find closure. 


This woman mourns as her mother's remains are exhumed from an unmarked grave, bringing bitter closure, as her mother's name is moved from the list of "disappeared" to the list of the murdered.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2354609/Maya-Indians-come-hiding-help-uncover-graves-loved-ones-Guatemala-gets-grips-horror-genocide-17-years-civil-war.html

How ironic that their historic calendar has been the main object of international attention toward Mayan culture in the 21st Century.



Safe Locations:

Because Guatemala is located on a narrow strip of land between seas and is caught in the midst of several seismically active tectonic plates, the Zetas predict total devastation for that country, as for most of the rest of Central America, in spite of beautiful highlands that would be tempting to climb.  They use strong language such as "crushed" and "ground up" to make their point.  In addition, there are 37 volcanoes, with 4 being active.

Two land-based solutions seem to present themselves: migration toward the interior of South America, such as the rural southeastern highlands of Colombia, or migration north into the interior of Mexico, preferably toward the central portion of that nation:

Quote
Volcanic ash will flow to what is now the south in the Aftertime, so the best bet is to head north of this volcanic belt, into what are now the deserts of Mexico, which will bloom in the Aftertime.

Quote
When the Caribbean Plate is pushed west, and pushed down, this will of course greatly affect those Central American countries on that plate. This includes Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, and as the plate border cuts through central Guatemala, it too is affected. But Mexico is unaffected by the shifting plates. Except for some interference with tides in the Gulf of Mexico, caused by the dissipating tsunami that will course north when waters rebound over the sinking Caribbean Plate, the N American Plate will be relatively unaffected.

Quote
Trauma from magnitude 8 and 9 quakes along the Andes will still strike suddenly, and the crumbling of Central America will likewise be traumatic and strike suddenly for a given location. When two mountain ranges moves closer together, for those in the valley this cannot be anything other than a horrific trauma.


Here is a general guide for where to go in Mexico to avoid vulcanism.

May the people of Guatemala understand the deadly signal from Mt. Fuego that it is time to migrate, either north into interior Mexico or south into interior parts of South America.  May they find locations free from the bloody violence that has claimed the lives of so many of their people, and free from the oppression of coercive central governments, allowing the Mayan people in particular to have a fresh start at expanding their peaceful agrarian civilization once again, brought forward into the Aftertime.

Incredible footage.  It's difficult to watch those people running down the road, and seeing that huge and growing ash cloud looming overhead, knowing the likelihood of their safe escape is low. 

Also very interesting in one of the videos was information that a number of animals, such as duck, dog, cat, etc., were found alive in the same homestead where all the humans had perished.  Still, it is really sad to see the people basically running for their lives from a gigantic ash cloud.
