Protests denounce ICE raids

first_imgWhen the Washington Post leaked on Dec. 23 that the Barack Obama administration would begin a series of raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security, and start deporting some 100,000 people in 2016, immigrant rights groups did not sit back. Protests to the raids, which mostly target migrants from Central America who fled violence in their home countries in the prior year, were immediately in the works. The raids began the first weekend of the new year.  On Dec. 30, a noisy demonstration was held by immigrant families and activists outside the White House. (wusa9.com) On Jan. 6, according to Mission Local, protesters gathered outside the San Francisco ICE headquarters. On Jan. 7, activists protested outside the federal building which houses ICE in Newark, N.J., reported nj.com. Other demonstrations have occurred in Boston; New Haven, Conn.; Homestead, Fla.; and Auburn, Ore. (democracynow.org, Jan. 8)Following are reports on protests and press conferences from Workers World Party activists.ICE-free NYCWith arms locked together and shielded with large black piping, heroic immigrant rights activists blocked traffic for nearly an hour outside the ICE offices and immigration court in lower Manhattan. The action was publicized as a noontime press conference in response to the Obama administration’s authorization of more raids, detentions and deportations of migrants. Following the press conference, organizers held a short march of 250 people, who were accompanied by the cops. Then, suddenly, another group of mostly immigrant youth activists and migrants, in touch with the march, moved in and shut down one of the largest and busiest thoroughfares in New York City.Toni Arenstein, from the People’s Power Assembly, told Workers World: “Police were totally unprepared. They really didn’t know what to do. Not only were the people blocking the intersections, but everyone in the area went into the street.” Protesters prevented the cops from opening up two corners by quickly stretching banners across the street stating their demands: “ICE Free NYC,” “Close Prisons — Open Borders,” “Not One More Deportation: Cut the Fence” and “Fuck ICE.”“It was empowering to see people’s response to the action and to see the community come together within a day to speak out against the raids. This is just the first step,” said Claudia Palacios, a PPA organizer who took part in the protest.Seven protesters were arrested. Organizers outside the police headquarters heard that because of the way the seven were tied together and because they allegedly refused arrest, they were still being kept after 24 hours.Predawn raids start in Atlanta Several dozen immigrant women and children, one of them only 4 years old, were seized from homes throughout metro Atlanta by ICE agents in the predawn hours of Jan. 2.By nightfall, at least 47 refugees from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador were on a plane to Texas where they were taken to a detention center in preparation for deportation.On Jan. 7, at a press conference in front of the Atlanta ICE office called by the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, Johanna Gutierrez provided the terrifying details of how her niece and nephew were removed by armed men from her Norcross, Ga., home.Gutierrez described how agents came barging through the door, claiming they did not need a warrant to enter. Going from room to room, they separated the scared, crying children from the adults. They threatened to arrest her when she sought to comfort and reassure the children.Gutierrez’s niece, Ana Lizeth Mejía, and her young son had fled Honduras in the summer of 2014 after her brother was killed by gang members. Gutierrez said that her niece wore an ankle monitor and had an upcoming court date on her application for asylum.The GLAHR office has been inundated with phone calls since the raids took place. Some are relatives trying to find out where their loved ones have been taken. Other immigrants call seeking advice, frightened to send their children to school or to open their doors — situations so similar to their fearful lives in the violence-wrought countries from which they had tried to escape.Wisconsin says #StopTheRaids Voces de la Frontera and the New Sanctuary Movement in Milwaukee held a protest Jan. 7 at the ICE office there to demand an end to the latest raids and deportations. Participants pledged their support of refugee community members and called on ICE to stop the raids. An upcoming “Know Your Rights” workshop and other resources for community self-defense were announced. The protest was supported by the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association and other labor and community organizations.

Part of the Council’s goals will be to identify policies which artificially increase the cost of homeownership and reduce regulatory burdens.Nationally, affordability has been the primary roadblock to homeownership, according to First American’s Real Estate Sentiment Index (RESI).“The main burden, affordability, confirms the strong sellers’ market conditions from 2018 have continued in many markets in early 2019, as demand outpaces supply and prices continue to rise,” said First American Chief Economist Mark Fleming.To increase affordability, HUD laid out a plan for the new Council, which includes taking action to reduce Federal regulatory and administrative burdens that discourage private investment and housing development and streamline statutory, regulatory, and administrative burdens that inhibit the development of affordable housing supply.

‘Golden State Killer’ suspect allegedly killed his first victim in 1975, while he was a police officer

first_imgSacramento Police Department(SACRAMENTO) — The suspected “Golden State Killer” is now facing charges for his 13th alleged murder, and the earliest one yet — the killing of a college professor in central California in 1975.Joseph DeAngelo, a 72-year-old former police officer, was arrested this April and charged with 12 killings, following decades in which California law enforcement officers were stumped by what became known as the “Golden State Killer” case.DeAngelo is now accused of shooting to death Claude Snelling while allegedly trying to kidnap Snelling’s daughter from the professor’s Visalia home on Sept. 11, 1975, Visalia Police Chief Jason Salazar said at a news conference Monday.DeAngelo was working as a police officer in Exeter, California, at the time of Snelling’s murder, Salazar said.While DNA was recovered from other of DeAngelo’s alleged crimes, no DNA was available from the Visalia killing, Salazar said.He now stands accused of 13 murders across five California counties.DeAngelo is also believed to be behind a string of burglaries that terrorized Visalia in Tulare County in the mid-1970s, Salazar said.A prowler would break into homes in the evening by prying open doors or windows, Salazar said. The intruder would rifle through belongings but rather than steal items of high value would instead take keepsake items, like pocketing one earring instead of a pair, Salazar said.The burglar was also known to eat or prepare food in victims’ homes, and some victims received strange phone calls after the robberies, Salazar said. These were practices common to the “Golden State Killer” after rapes and break-ins.The Visalia break-ins ended after an officer caught a suspect trying to enter a home, Salazar said. The suspect shot at the officer, injuring him, but the officer was able to provide a description of the suspect, Salazar said.Ballistic information allowed police to link a gun stolen in one of the break-ins to Snelling’s killing, Salazar said.DeAngelo is now facing a first-degree murder charge, Tulare County District Attorney Tim Ward said Monday.The “Golden State Killer” was believed to have left a trail of murders, rapes and home burglaries throughout California in the 1970s and 1980s, with the last known crime in 1986.But no arrest was made for decades.In the early 2000s, investigators were able to obtain the killer’s DNA at one crime scene: The 1980 double murder of Lyman and Charlene Smith, who were bludgeoned to death at their Ventura County home.Investigators then started reviewing rape kits — which contained DNA samples from victims — in other jurisdictions, said Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert.One of those counties was Contra Costa, where recently retired investigator Paul Holes led the charge to use genealogy to find the killer, said Schubert. Holes spent nearly 25 years on this case, she said.This year, investigators plugged the mystery killer’s DNA into a genealogy database.Based on the pool of people on the genealogy website, investigators were then able to build a family tree of the unknown killer’s relatives, who had submitted their DNA to the database on their own.Investigators narrowed the search based on age, location and other characteristics, leading them to DeAngelo.Authorities surveilled DeAngelo and collected his DNA from a tissue left in a trash. Investigators plugged his discarded DNA back into the genealogy database and found a match, linking DeAngelo’s DNA to that gathered at multiple crime scenes, Schubert said.DeAngelo is awaiting trial in Sacramento County. He has not entered a plea.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

BNFL’s tougher new work culture wins HSE’s praise

first_img Previous Article Next Article BNFL’s efforts to improve work culture and safety atSellafield nuclear plant over the past year have been acknowledged in an HSEreport released last week.Sellafield’s HR team have driven forward a tough new workculture seeking to instill self-discipline and responsibility among the8,000-strong workforce.The “zero tolerance” approach to wilful breaches of safetywas a response to three critical HSE reports in February 2000, and a media scandalabout the falsification of safety data. Staffing shortages and poor managementwere among the criticisms. Last summer BNFL, in co-operation with the unions, developednew standards and expectations for its staff. They came into force on 1 August.Peter Woolley, Sellafield’s head of HR and public affairs,said, “We had to get the employees to understand that there were basicstandards of behaviour that would have to be met.”The standards included adhering to 20mph limits at the site,the proper use of access passes and consuming food in the right areas. In theensuing six months, 20 people were dismissed for non-compliance. But Woolley admits that while the standards have gone a longway to improving quality and safety standards at Sellafield, there has been aprice to pay.He said, “It is medicine that needed to be taken but it hasnot been very palatable. Morale is not high.”The HR team recruited 400 additional staff and hascontributed to significant management restructuring. It is now targeting morale.By Mike Broad Comments are closed.

It’s a maritime capacity-building continuum with the goal of enabling our African partners to provide maritime security for peace and stability,” said Hart.During his remarks, Hart spoke of the goals and objectives for APS 2013.“How do we take APS to the next level? By moving away from a training-intensive program and organize [sic] APS efforts through emphasizing hands-on training and real-world operations.”Currently, the primary operational elements of APS include the Africa Maritime Law Enforcement Program (AMLEP), a joint mission conducted by Naval Forces Africa, U.S. Coast Guard Atlantic Area, and African navies and coast guards; maritime passing exercises; and the multi-lateral “Express” series of exercises, including Obangame Express, Saharan Express, Phoenix Express and Cutlass Express.During the conference, representatives from a few of the attending African partner nations had an opportunity to brief the status of their respective nation’s maritime environment as well as progress that has been made over the past five years due to APS.Nations who provided country briefs included Cameroon, The Gambia, Mauritania, Morocco, Mozambique and Sao Tome Principe.Lt.

Kenneth “K.J.” Norton, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa Deputy Chief of Staff for Strategy, Resources and Plans, provided closing remarks focusing on the key to the successes APS has experienced in themaritime domain environment. “APS is a shared endeavor, and for APS to be successful, ships are the platform of choice,” said Norton. “But I’m not talking about grey hulls here; I’m talking about partnerships. I’m talking about relationships. And most of all, I’m talking about friendships. Those are the ships that will ensure the continued success of APS.”Partner nations who attended the APS 2013 IPC included Australia, Belgium, Benin, Cameroon, Canada, Djibouti, Finland, France, Gabon, The Gambia, Ghana, Italy, Kenya, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Republic of Congo, Sao Tome Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Spain, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda and United States of America.APS is an international security cooperation initiative facilitated by Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa, aimed at strengthening global maritime partnerships through training and collaborative activities in order to improve maritime safety and security in Africa.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , April 09, 2012; Image: marine APS 2013 IPC Takes Place in Garmisch, Germany View post tag: Garmisch View post tag: IPC Share this articlelast_img read more

Oxford imam: “No Muslim terrorism in the UK before Iraq”

first_imgAn Oxford imam has made claims in an interview with rt.com that there was no Islamic terrorism in the UK before Iraq.Dr Taj Hargey was speaking in the aftermath of the Woolwich killing of Drummer Lee Rigby. The British soldier was attacked by men who are believed to be British-born Muslim converts. In a camera-phone video, one of the men claimed the attack was a response to the way “Muslims are dying by British soldiers every day”.Dr Hargey condemned the murder in the strongest possible terms, but argued that there was “a linkage” between the events in Woolwich and British foreign policy.The imam of the Oxford Islamic Congregation, claimed that “there was no Muslim terrorism in the United Kingdom until Blair went illegally into Iraq”.Prime Minister David Cameron said in a media address outside Downing Street that the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby last week “sickened us all” and that the attacks were a “betrayal of Islam… that gives so much to our country.”Cameron continued, “There is absolutely no justification for these acts and the fault for them lies solely and purely with the sickening individuals that carried out this attack”.Dr Taj Hargey, who has provoked controversy for inviting the first ever woman to lead and preach at Friday prayers in Britain, and for marrying Islamic women to non-Islamic men, called for the Muslim community in the UK to confront the radical and extremist minority. He said, “Their [extremist] ideology and philosophy must be demolished”.He also claimed that that Islam is a religion of peace: “You don’t kill someone in the name of God, Islam condemns that… it’s pure blasphemy”.Zain Iqbal, a first year student at Brasenose College and a member of the Oxford University Islamic society told Cherwell that “under no circumstances do grievances justify bringing terror to our streets.”He continued, “However, labeling terrorism as Islamic ventures into dangerous territory and is unjustified. Throughout history we have seen terrorism emanating from all quarters and we should remain acutely aware to not label entire communities.”last_img read more

Student “asked to leave” after bringing her toddler to Oxford talk on “Women and leadership”

first_img“If you’re organizing an event after 5pm, especially if the event is about equality, women in the workplace, try and organize it in a child friendly place, or offer a crèche service for the event. We don’t stop being interested in the world just because we are parents.” “They pick a seat for us, the talk is about to start, and I’m so excited and relieved.” “Later on, the University of Oxford and Nuffield Department of Population Health will congratulate themselves on organising such an event and being at the forefront of a fight for equality. Reportedly, the “technical lady’s” reasoning was that MsKordala and her child were sat “right next to the video camera man.” However, sheallegedly offered to “go to the other side of the room so the camera doesn’tpick up [the toddler’s] babbling” and was told: “No, you need to leave thepremises.” In a post on Facebook, Ania Kordala stated how she had allegedlyemailed ahead to ask the organisers if she could bring her toddler, “putting therequest” in the ‘Special Requirements’ box available to those signing up. Theevent’s host, Professor Valerie Beral, directed through her Personal AssistantSarah Atkinson, responded: “Unfortunately, babies and toddlers can not attend.” Allegedly, Ms Kordala decided bring her child along anyway “tosee what they say at the door.” In a second Facebook post written shortly afterthe event, she said: “I was lucky to meet my college principal and ask her toback me up, which she did do so they let me in. The talk took place on Tuesday 26 March at the Sheldonian theatre. The speaker, Julia Gillard, was the first woman to take up the position of Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister in Australia. She served as Deputy from 2007 until 2010 and then as Prime Minister from 2010 to 2013. She reported that she had been refused entry.  I explained to Ania that I had no official role but that I would see what I could do.  Nuffield Department of Population Health, which is part ofthe University, organised the event. The full title of the event was: “Womenand leadership – fighting for an equal world.” Julia Gillard’s commitmentsinclude serving as a patron of CAMFED, the Campaign for Female Education. “It was not only rude, the message was – We’re ruining the event, our presence is a problem, and the sooner we disappear the better. “We encourage students and others with families to participate fully in events run by the Department. Principal at Green Templeton College, Professor Denise Lievesley, told Cherwell: Head of the Nuffield Department of Population Health RoryCollins told Cherwell: “A student brought her young child to thelecture held yesterday in the Sheldonian Theatre, and I personally ensured thatshe was allowed to bring the child into the building. It is definitely notappropriate that she was later asked to leave with her child. “Even when I was already in the corridor and nobody could hear my daughter, there were 3 or 4 people impatiently waiting until I gather my stuff and pointing me to the door. I had to remind them I had a buggy, go get it, (carry up the stairs with a toddler in one hand and buggy in the other) and then ask to leave via an accessible entrance and not the staircase. “The talk will be watched many times and probably also receive media coverage. But this is just one side of the story. Green Templeton College prides itself on supporting students with families, and it is especially inappropriate that this happened at a wonderful talk by Julia Gillard about significant gender inequalities which still exist in our societies.”  Ania Kordala said: “As we are walking out of the building I hear the room filling with applause as Julia Gillard enters the stage and starts talking. About women in leadership. About equal rights and opportunities. “I was so mad I was hardly talking, I was just pointing to the where the buggy was and where the accessible entrance was. “On arriving as a guest at the Sheldonian theatre to hear Julia Gillard I met one of the Green Templeton students, Ania Kordala, with her toddler.  Ms Kordala reported that after her toddler “babbled”, “alady from technical crew” approached her and told her she “needed to leave.” Accordingto the student, she left the room to talk to the woman, who then “would not lether back in”, and she was told “her friend could get her stuff [which was leftin the room where the talk was taking place].” Speaking exclusively to Cherwell Kordala added that “The fact that I was asked to leave is one thing. How it was dealt with is another. I spoke to Professor Rory Collins of the Nuffield Department of Population Health, asking if Ania and her child could be admitted.  He agreed wholeheartedly, and he and I went outside together to ensure that she was able to enter.  “In future, we will make sure that all staff working at our events are aware that families are welcome.” As far as I was aware this was satisfactory, so  I am very sad to learn that Ania was subsequently asked to leave.  I was unaware of this.  “I have been lucky to have a supportive PI, an amazing co supervisor, and a great family friendly group. I have attended lectures with my daughter before (one on Athena Swan in DPAG, but not only) and even a Christmas carols service in Keble College chapel. There had never been an issue until yesterday. She normally either sleeps through the event or plays with books. If she starts disrupting the event or cries, I leave. “The other side of the story is a student parent who wanted to be a part of the talk. Who literally fought her way into the building despite being told ‘no.’ Who made it inside and got kicked out almost immediately after. Who is outside the building while everyone else is inside.” The University, and event host Professor Valerie Beral have been contacted for comment.last_img read more
