Police attack on ICE encampment condemned

first_imgPolice raided an encampment outside the Philadelphia Immigration Customs and Enforcement facility for the second time on July 5. It was the fourth day of the people’s protest.Ten minutes before the early afternoon attack, police told protesters they had to move water coolers and supplies off a sidewalk and clear space in front of the building. As people began to comply and legal supporters tried to clarify the situation, the police, using bicycles, pushed through the camp, knocking down tents and canopies, throwing possessions aside and pushing people who questioned their attack. Seven people were arrested.The encampment outside the Philadelphia ICE facility, the most aggressive facility in the U.S., followed days of protests beginning July 2 around three demands: Abolish ICE; close the federal immigrant detention facility in Berks County, Pa., where hundreds of families, including children, have been held indefinitely; and end local collaboration with federal immigration officials, including the Preliminary Arraignment Reporting System (PARS), a database of arrests that the city has contractually shared with ICE.A press conference following the police assault was held later that day. Police threatened to seize sound equipment shortly before it was scheduled to start, leaving speakers without amplification against a noisy backdrop of city trash trucks removing debris from the camp.Despite the police attempt to silence their voices, speakers delivered their messages and demands loud and clear. The conference was covered by most major news media.Speakers outlined the encampment’s three demands and noted that Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf has the power to close the Berks facility with an executive order. Im/migrant activists spoke on the connection between U.S. imperialist wars and intervention abroad and the crisis of mass migration.Nancy Nguyen, VietLeadNancy Nguyen, a child of Vietnamese refugees to the U.S. and executive director of VietLead, related the history of the U.S. war on Southeast Asia, where more bombs were dropped than during all previous wars combined. “We are here now, but since 2003, over 1,475 people from Vietnam and Cambodia have been deported. We are seeking justice and we stand in solidarity with the people who have been occupying this space. More eyes are on ICE now.”Colombian activist Mara Hanao, from Philly Socialist, related a similar experience of migrants driven to come to the U.S. because of oppression due to U.S. intervention and attacks on workers by multinational corporations. She recalled the massacre of 2,000 banana plantation workers by the United Fruit Company in 1928, which contributed to the drive of people in Colombia to flee to the north.The Rev. Katie Aikins of the Tabernacle United Church stated, “The U.S. is a nation bathing in the ideology of white supremacy since its founding. It uses this rhetoric to terrorize people who don’t look like us. PARS is part of the problem of creating a terrorizing existence for immigrants.”Cornelius Moody, REAL Justice and Workers WorldRepresenting Workers World Party and Philadelphia REAL (Racial, Economic and Legal) Justice, Cornelius Moody spoke to the issue of accountability and of resisting a system unaccountable to the people: “This police force in our city, ICE and the U.S. government are not accountable to the communities they police and oppress. If you have a system that is acting upon you oppressively and is not accountable to you, as a community you have a right and responsibility to resist that force.“Philadelphia police, with increased funding of over $650 million per year, have shown that they are incapable of being accountable to the city of Philadelphia. We have to hold them accountable ourselves — by whatever means necessary. Whether it is the Philadelphia police force, ICE or the U.S. military, we have to disempower, disarm and disband them, and for the people we have to do the opposite, for ourselves.”Also speaking for REAL Justice, Anthony Smith, first generation U.S. born, from an immigrant family, raised that “Black people in Philadelphia and all across the country suffer from a very intense so-called separation of families. The military, police and ICE all function together to destroy families and communities.“The system isn’t broken. It’s working as it always has been. … And until we decide that we will take power from the state and deal with our communities ourselves, we will be caught in this constant loop. We do not need the police or ICE to deal with issues we can deal with ourselves! Abolish the police! Abolish ICE!”Miguel Andrade, JuntosMiguel Andrade, with the immigrant rights group Juntos, expressed thanks to the people who came out at the encampment who are not fighting for immigrant communities, but with them: “White supremacy has been a disease in this country since 1492. Police come out of a racist institution of hunting down runaway slaves. Border patrols come from a renegade group of the KKK. ICE comes out of intense Islamophobia after the 9/11 attacks.“White supremacy has been fueling and perpetuating every single attack that communities of color have been facing for decades. It is time to stop it. ICE didn’t start under [President Donald] Trump. The deportation machine that Trump is using white supremacy to fuel was handed over to him by the [President Barack] Obama administration.“ICE has been terrorizing our communities for decades. My father was deported when I was 10 years old. I know what family separation at the hands of the U.S. government feels like. That is something you never recover from. I haven’t seen my father in person for over 10 years. But I’m still fighting.“My community has been fighting against ICE for years. We do not give credit to Mayor [Jim] Kenney or ­[former Mayor Michael] Nutter for declaring Philadelphia a sanctuary city. The policy that Kenney was in federal court to defend was written and strategized by the immigrant community of Philadelphia. We the people pushed them to do it.“We must push them again. The ICE office here is the most aggressive in the country. Immigrant communities have been fighting this for years.“Don’t let this end after the occupation ends. Spread the word that this is happening. Amplify the voices of the immigrant communities. Don’t speak for us, but make space. Follow the leadership and messaging of immigrant communities. Abolish ICE!”WW photos: Joseph PietteFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Days of Resistance for Palestine, Aug. 7-9:  A call to Palestinian people and those who demand justice

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this By Kathy Durkin and Betsey PietteThe Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network has called on “all Palestinians and those who stand for justice in Palestine to join together to organize the Days of Resistance for Palestine from August 7-9.” These actions are  dedicated to the memory of writer and revolutionary Marxist Ghassan Kanafani. They mark the 48th anniversary of his assassination in Beirut, Lebanon, by car bomb planted by Mossad, Israel’s brutal intelligence agency, on July 8, 1972. He was 36 years old.Credit: SamidounRecognized as a leading figure in Palestinian “resistance literature” — and the originator of the term — Kanafani stressed that Palestinian literature was deeply connected with global struggles against oppression.  A true internationalist, he wrote: “Imperialism has laid its body over the world, the head in Eastern Asia, the heart in the Middle East, its arteries reaching Africa and Latin America. Wherever you strike it, you damage it, and you serve the world revolution. … The Palestinian cause is not a cause for Palestinians only, but a cause for every revolutionary, wherever he is, as a cause of the exploited and oppressed masses in our era.”Stop Israel’s annexation plan!Samidoun’s call explains that Israel’s dangerous program of annexation  “continues to threaten Palestinians in the West Bank, including the most fertile agricultural land of the Jordan Valley, which is still slated for Israel’s latest land grab. … This is simply the continuation of over 72 years of land theft, dispossession, apartheid and genocide — but it requires continued mobilization and action to confront, alongside the siege on Gaza, the mass imprisonment of Palestinians, the demolition of homes, the denial of Palestinian refugees’ right to return and further war crimes and crimes against humanity.”Further, Samidoun stresses the strength of Palestinian resistance: “Annexation is a continuing threat — especially if the Israeli state thinks that it can pass unnoticed without continued resistance. The struggle is not over; in many ways, it has just begun. … It must inspire us to mobilize and organize — as Kanafani so clearly expressed — to confront imperialism, Zionism and the reactionary regimes that continue to collaborate with these forces of oppression, and to struggle for liberation. Every victory of the peoples in struggle against these forces is a victory for Palestine and for our collective victory.”Mobilize!The Samidoun Network urges “all Palestinians inside and outside Palestine, and all of the national forces, popular institutions, youth, student and women’s movements, social justice movements and solidarity organizations to participate actively in ‘banging on the walls of the tank’ … to break down the walls of silence.”Samidoun stresses: “Join in marches, popular activities, demonstrations and remind the world that the Palestinian people will continue to rise and confront all attempts of liquidation and destruction of the cause of Palestine and resist dispossession, exile and genocide — and that all people of conscience stand beside the Palestinian people in this critical moment.”Over 70 organizations have joined the call, including National Students for Justice in Palestine in the United States, Within our Lifetime-United for Palestine, the Palestinian Youth Movement, Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, The International Action Center and Africa for Palestine. Workers World Party is an endorser.Events will highlight the struggles of Palestinian prisoners and their role in all areas of revolutionary struggle.  So far, activities are planned in Charleroi, Belgium; Manchester, England; New York City and Vancouver, and more will be announced as they unfold.Samidoun salutes the martyrs of the Palestinian liberation struggle and calls for freedom for all Palestinian prisoners and the right of return for all refugees. The organization declares: “Victory, liberation and return will come for the struggling Palestinian people!”For further information and to endorse, see samidoun.net.

Two TV journalists freed after nine days

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information Etiom hosted a programme called “Referendum” on 2 November in which Ngiaba participated. During the programme, the two journalists criticized Ntwa’s management of the provincial assembly and accused him of not wanting to hold a plenary session for fear of a no-confidence vote.Ntwa told JED he filed an official complaint about the programme with the provincial coordinator of the media regulator CSAC and sent a copy of his complaint to the state prosecutor.“In their programme, the two journalists criticized the provincial assembly bureau’s management and went so far as to give a date when this bureau would be removed,” Ntwa said. “This constitutes manipulation and disinformation. The prosecutor’s office conducted an investigation after viewing a recording of the offending programme.”JED strongly condemns this blatant misuse of the judicial system by a public office holder and calls on the province’s judicial authorities to release the two journalists as they have a right to be presumed innocent pending the outcome of the proceedings against them.

Jailing journalists is particular questionable in the wake of Prime Minister Augustin Matata Ponyo’s pledge on 7 May to decriminalize media offences.“The government and judicial system need to moderate their attitude towards journalists in line with the prime minister’s professed wish to respect their rights by allowing them to gather and disseminate news and information without risking imprisonment.”The two journalists are charged with “detrimental allegations,” which the criminal code defines as allegations of “precise facts, true or false, against another person that harm that person’s reputation.”For more information, read the JED press release:Journalist in Danger (JED) is outraged by the detention of two journalists in the main prison in Bandundu, capital of the southwestern province of the same name. They are Dadou Etiom of Nzondo TV, a privately-owned station based in Bandundu, and Guy Ngiaba, the local correspondent of Kinshasa-based Télé 50.JED has learned that Bandundu prosecutors jailed Etiom and Ngiaba on 27 November after bringing them face to face with provincial assembly president Boniface Ntwa, who has accused them of “detrimental allegations.”last_img read more

Breathing a little more life into Maybelle

first_img By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day I wasn’t real sure about what Carter Sanders said about Maybelle’s cosmetic enhancement.“When I saw your car, I thought it had rusted,” he said. “Then, I saw that you’re just a blooming idiot.”But, knowing Carter, I kind of took it as an off-handed compliment.I’ve been asked, “Why’d you do that?” a thousand times or more. The answer that seems to satisfy most folks is, “to embarrass my children.” But, actually, it was a feeble attempt to hold on to Maybelle just a few thousand miles longer. By Secrets Revealed Latest Stories If cars can be sick, Maybelle is very sick.Whether it’s a terminal illness or a chronic one, the wrench doctor is not quite sure.It started with “liver spots” on her hood, top and trunk. A home remedy of sorts was not recommended but tried. Breathing a little more life into Maybelle It’s easy to get attached to things, even a car. I can’t explain that and a lot of folks can’t understand it. But I’m a one-car kind of gal.Inside a car, it’s possible to be completely alone. You can talk to yourself and nobody knows. Why, you can even talk back. You can sing and nobody cringes if you’re a bit off key. You can laugh when happy and cry when sad. And, if you’re angry enough, you can say your Sunday school lesson backwards. All your thoughts, your fears, your hopes and dreams are contained inside that tin can on wheels.Having to let go can be traumatic so I was determined to ride Maybelle ’til the wheels fell off.When Maybelle turned 222,222 miles two weeks ago, I proudly took a picture of the odometer and felt confident that she would be around for many more miles. She was running like a well-oiled machine.A week later, she had a completed “brake”-down and three days later, another.That must have “tire-d” her out. Her treads were thin and her uppers had to be pulled and replaced. That caused her rear to deflate.She started to roar and groan so much that my brother, who is usually a quiet fellow, bellowed, “Why don’t you get your money out of the freezer or wherever you keep it and buy a new car?”Sometimes people can really hurt your feelings.Maybelle has been a part of my everyday life for 222,388 miles. That’s a long time.Saying “goodbye” is always hard and what makes it even harder is the sticker price on new automobiles. The car that I kind of seriously looked at costs $16,000 and that’s the same thing we paid for our first house. And the house included a living room suit from James Boswell’s furniture company.So, I’m thinking about a combi tuck, a transplant and some enhancements that I’d rather not mention for Maybelle.If I can coax a few more miles out of her, maybe I can hold on to my cold cash a little longer. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 11:00 pm Friday, June 1, 2012 A friend, Deedie, I’ll call her, agreed to help with a cosmetic cover up for the “liver spots. The idea was to “toss” a quilt lovingly over her “body” and hide the old age spots, thus giving her new life – a good coat of paint will help any old barn.Admittedly, the “rouge” that we applied gave Maybelle a look more of a relic from Woodstock than a warm, comforting quilt.Sometimes folks say something and you’re not sure whether it’s a compliment or not.

Characteristics of summer airflow over the Antarctic Peninsula in response to recent strengthening of westerly circumpolar winds

first_imgSummer near-surface temperatures over the northeast coast of the Antarctic Peninsula have increased by more than 2°C over the past 40 years, a temperature increase 3 times greater than that on the northwest coast. Recent analysis has shown a strong correlation between this striking warming trend and significant change in the summer Southern Hemisphere annular mode (SAM), which has resulted in greatly increased summer westerlies across the northern peninsula. It has been proposed that the strengthening westerlies have resulted in increased vertical deflection of relatively warm maritime air over the northern peninsula, contributing significantly to the observed warming and the recent collapse of northern sections of the Larsen Ice Shelf. In this study, laboratory and numerical modeling of airflow incident to the peninsula are employed to further understand this mechanism. It is shown that the effect of the strengthening westerlies has led to a distinct transition from a “blocked” regime to a “flow-over” regime, that is, confirmation of the proposed warming mechanism. The blocked regime is dominated by flow stagnation upstream (i.e., little vertical deflection) and consequent lateral deflection of flow along the western side of the peninsula. The flow-over regime is dominated by vertical deflection of mid/upper-level air over the peninsula, with strong downslope winds following closely to the leeward slope transporting this air (which warms adiabatically as it descends) to the near-surface of the northeast peninsula. The strong rotation typical of high latitudes considerably increases the flow over the peninsula, particularly strengthening it over the southern side (verified by aircraft measurements), suggesting that the warming trend is not solely confined to the northeast. Globally, flow regime transitions such as this may be responsible for other local climate variations.last_img read more

Leading agents criticise Rightmove’s AGM access restrictions

first_imgTwo leading estate agents have criticised the Rightmove decision to hold its AGM behind closed doors today, which will see just two shareholders allowed to attend in person.Rightmove says the measures are to protect the health and safety of the company’s employees and shareholders, and will see the company’s chairman Andrew Fisher call a poll on each of the resolutions, enabling all shareholder votes submitted before the meeting to be included in the results.“Regrettably, we cannot admit any other shareholders to our offices to attend the AGM in person,” the company says.But David Thomas and Rob Sargent, who are both involved in the ongoing campaign to force Rightmove to lower it fees and treat agents more fairly, claim Rightmove’s decision to exclude shareholders in person from its AGM is to stop difficult questions from the floor about the ongoing revolt among at least 3,000 branches, and its initial decision to offer a fee deferral scheme.Strange“I find it strange that a tech company like Rightmove which has been producing plenty of live webinars for its agents and the public even before the pandemic, would decide to hold its AGM behind closed doors and exclude the majority of its shareholders like this,” says David Thomas, boss of Nottingham estate agency Liberty Gate.“Surely they could allow shareholders access virtually via a zoom meeting or a similar tech platform?”.Rob Sargent, MD of the Acorn Group, adds: “Given there is so much turmoil between Rightmove and its customer base, you’d think they’d at least try to engage with shareholders a bit more, particularly when there’s tech out there that could enable that.“It does feel as if they are trying to batten down the hatches and hide from the story that’s unravelling among their increasingly disenfranchised and disenchanted agent customers.”   May 4, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
