International Working Women’s Month: Students honor Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks

first_imgDepicting Harriet Tubman & Rosa Parks.WW photo: Monica MooreheadBrooklyn, N.Y. — Harriet Tubman, who was born into U.S. slavery and then escaped her captors to become an operator of the Underground Railroad, a Union Army spy and a nurse during the Civil War, was honored at Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn, N.Y., by African-American women students and faculty members on March 16. In a powerful skit, they acknowledged the centennial of her death, which occurred on March 10, 1913. The skit was performed beautifully after only eight days of rehearsal.Not only was Tubman paid homage in the skit, but so too was Rosa Parks, a civil rights pioneer who was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus in 1955. Her courageous action is widely credited for sparking the historic Montgomery bus boycott. The mass boycott, which lasted more than a year, led to the victory of Black people no longer being forced to sit in the back of the bus. Parks was born on Feb. 4, 1913, making this year the centennial of her birth. She died in 2005.The plot of the skit centers on Parks and Tubman, who appear in modern-day time to speak to teenage women jumping rope. The two women answer questions and reflect on the challenges they faced growing up in a racist and sexist society — challenges that led them to their inspiring activist roles in progressive movements and struggles for social change, despite the different eras they came from. After listening to the two women, each teenage woman becomes inspired to speak to the audience about the societal changes she would like to see in her lifetime, like health care for all and an end to stop-and-frisk police policies in their communities.The skit was part of a daylong event co-sponsored by the International Working Women’s Day Coalition and the Care Center, which is based in the school. Before the skit was performed, short videos were shown on Harriet Tubman’s life along with highlights from a March 9 speakout organized by the IWWD Coalition at the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire Memorial in Manhattan. The program also included spoken word, dance and solidarity messages.The writer is a co-coordinator of the IWWD Coalition, representing the Women’s Fightback Movement along with co-coordinators Brenda Stokely of the Million Worker March Movement and Irma Bajar from Gabriela-USA, an organization based in the Philippines liberation struggle.  Go to the Facebook page, International Working Women’s Day Coalition, for more information and updates.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Another suspect arrested in investigation into filmmaker’s murder

first_img RSF_en El SalvadorAmericas News Follow the news on El Salvador Salvadorean authorities must not obstruct coronavirus coverage News Help by sharing this information 18.12.2009 – Ten new arrests from within the “Mara 18” gang in probe into Christian Poveda murderTen members of “Mara 18”, including two women, were arrested in Sopayango, in the San Salvador suburbs on 16 December in connection with the murder of the Franco-Spanish documentary film-maker Christian Poveda. The killing of the photo-journalist, overnight on 2 September 2009, sent shockwaves through the profession. Reporters Without Borders welcomed the commitment of the Salvadorian authorities to solving the case. These latest arrests bring to 25 the number of those in detention in connection with the murder, five of them arrested in the days following the killing, including one police officer. Ten suspects were already in prison for crimes committed previously. Charges of “murder”, “collusion with murder” and “forming an armed gang” were put to the ten just-arrested suspects. The prosecutor’s office said that some members of “Mara 18” objected to the way in which they were portrayed in Poveda’s film, “La Vida Loca” (Crazy Life). Some gang members also reportedly believed that Poveda had given police information about them. ———Five suspects arrested in investigation into filmmaker’s murderReporters Without Borders notes the rapid progress apparently being made in the investigation into the 3 September murder of Franco-Spanish filmmaker Christian Poveda. The Salvadorean police announced yesterday that three gang members and a police officer suspected of being a gang ally have just been arrested for his murder.They also announced that a fourth gang member arrested a few days ago in connection with another case is now also being treated as a suspect in Poveda’s murder, while an alleged senior gang leader already jailed in connection with other murders is suspected of ordering the Poveda murder from his prison.“It is encouraging to see the Salvadorean criminal police giving their full attention to the case even if the guilt of the suspects remains to be confirmed,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Before the stir created by Poveda’s murder fades, it is important that the authorities demonstrate that the maras, these violent street gangs, are not always above the law.”The press freedom organisation added: “The presence of policeman among the suspects is shocking, especially as Salvadoreans have more need of their security forces than ever to maintain law and order. We urge the authorities to continue acting with the same rigour until the case is fully solved and we hope those responsible will receive they punishment they deserve.”According to the online newspapers El Faro and El Salvador, the three latest “mareros” (gang members) to be arrested for Poveda’s murder are Roberto Luis Romero Vásquez, also known as El Tigre, Calixto Rigoberto Escobar, aka El Toro, and Miguel Ángel Ortiz, aka El Cholo, while the marero who was arrested a few days earlier for another crime is José Alejandro Melara, aka El Puma.The policeman arrested on suspicion of complicity and conspiracy was named as José Napoleón Espinoza, an officer assigned to the 911 emergency phone system in Soyapango, near the capital. The gang member suspected of masterminding Poveda’s murder is Nelson Lazo Rivera, a detainee in Cojutepeque prison.According to statements taken by the police, the police officer Espinosa, himself an alleged Mara 18 gang member, told mareros that Poveda was a police informant and had provided the police with videos, photos and personal details about certain gang members and where they hid their guns.As a result of this information, Nelson “Fantasma” Lazo Rivera, a Mara 18 section chief in La Campanera, an area outside the capital, allegedly sent word to Poveda to come to a meeting on 30 August to defend himself against the charges. If they had been confirmed, gang members would have assigned to killing him and burying the body. Poveda did not go to the meeting and, according to the police, this confirmed the allegations in the eyes of the mareros. Poveda finally went to La Campanera on 2 September and was seen to leave in a car with several individuals towards the place where his body was found. The police said the killers forgot to bury his body as originally planned.Despite Espinoza’s allegations, many residents of La Campanera have said Poveda was regarded as a “friend” by Mara 18. As well as his documentary about the gang, La Vida Loca, he supported Mara 18 in various projects including the creation of bakery that would provide gang members with a way of transitioning into non-criminal activity.(Photo: AFP) Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom to go further El SalvadorAmericas April 11, 2020 Find out morecenter_img October 7, 2020 Find out more May 10, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Another suspect arrested in investigation into filmmaker’s murder Receive email alerts News ———————————–30-04-10 – Police arrest alleged mastermind of documentary filmmaker’s murderThe Salvadorean authorities say they have arrested the gang leader who ordered documentary filmmaker Christian Poveda’s murder. Poveda, who had dual French and Spanish nationality, was gunned down in an outlying district of San Salvador on 2 September 2009.Accused of various crimes and regarded by the police as one of the main leaders of the “Mara 18” gang, Daniel “El Black” Cabrera Flores was arrested on 20 April in La Campanera, the east San Salvador district where Poveda had been filming the gang. His arrest brings the number of people held in connection with Poveda’s murder to 29. Reporters Without Borders welcomes the commitment to the case shown by the Salvadorean authorities. Now that such a large number of arrests have been made, the authorities must establish what role, if any, each of the detained suspects played in Poveda’s death.The motive also still needs to be established. Poveda was supporting various projects aimed at reintegrating gang members into society. Although La Campanera residents have said he was regarded a friend of Mara 18, some members of the gang reportedly suspected him of being a police informer._______17.02.2010 – Three more suspects arrested in Christian Poveda murder investigationThe Salvadorean police have arrested three more suspects in the investigation into documentary filmmaker Christian Poveda’s murder on 2 September 2009. Their arrests bring the total number of suspects detained to 28. The police say they think a total of 36 people had a part in the killing of Poveda, who had French and Spanish dual citizenship.The three latest detainees, all alleged members of the “Mara 18” gang, are Roberto “El Scrapy” Hernández, 24, José Carlos “El Kala” Barahona, 28, and Rafael “Soomby” Parada, 26. The police say they acted as lookouts during the execution-style killingIt is encouraging to see the Salvadorean authorities continuing to work so hard on the case. It nonetheless remains to be seen whether all the suspects really did have a role in Poveda’s murder. Aside from making arrests, the authorities must establish exactly what happened and who within “Mara 18” was responsible.________ Organisation June 12, 2020 Find out more The Salvadorean authorities have arrested another suspect in their investigation into the September 2009 murder of Christian Poveda, a documentary filmmaker with dual French and Spanish nationality.The latest detainee is Iván Antonio Leiva, 23, an alleged member of the “Mara 18” gang who was wanted on suspicion of directly participating in Poveda’s murder. Arrested in a San Salvador suburb on 6 May as a result of a tip-off, he is to be tried on a charge of aggravated homicide.Daniel Cabrera Flores, the “Mara 18” leader who allegedly gave the orders for Poveda’s murder, was arrested last month.

Based on an examination of more than six million pages of documents, the report lays out in previously unknown detail the extent and utter brutality of the treatment of human beings in United States custody, as well as the duplicity of agents of our government.A core Christian value is that the truth will set you free. And the truth told in this report is that the very arguments against releasing it are in themselves arguments against torture — implicitly acknowledging that torture saps the country’s credibility and threatens its national security.Thankfully, we have a history in America of admitting where we were wrong through after-incident reviews and learning from our mistakes. People of faith and communities of conscience can only react with horror and great anguish to the facts on detainee treatment after 9/11 detailed in the report. At the same time, the fact that this report was undertaken — and a summary made public — is commendable.We thank Senator Dianne Feinstein for her principled leadership for years in producing this report and now in making the findings public. And we applaud the moral leadership of Senator John McCain – who broke with members of his party in a speech from the Senate floor lauding the release of the report and decrying the use of torture.While certainly a moral issue, for All Saints Church torture is also a religious issue. Our faith tradition requires that we recognize the sacred in every human being. It is for this reason that the Vestry of All Saints Church has passed a Resolution in Opposition to Torture and will continue to oppose torture in all forms, in all places.For more information contact Keith Holeman, Director of Communications, All Saints Church Pasadena, at (626) 583-2739 or [email protected] Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Limerick halting site will go

first_imgWalk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended WhatsApp Linkedin Facebook CONTROVERSIAL proposals to spend more money on a halting site in Rhebogue have been stopped by city councillor’s who are instead pushing to have it closed.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The site has been at the centre of claims that members the nearby St Patrick’s GAA club are being harassed and intimidated by person associated with the site.At a meeting to ratify the council’s Traveller Accommodation Programme in City Hall, councillors were told that the local authority is obliged to endorse such a programme and if councillors don’t vote for it, the manager can then implement it anyway. But amendments to the plan could be made, elected members were told.One item on the Programme suggested spending almost half a million Euro to upgrade the Rhebogue site but Cllr Kieran O’Hanlon (FF) said he would stop that happening “if it’s the last thing I do as a member of this council”.Cllr O’Hanlon said that St Patrick’s GAA club “is one of the oldest sporting organisations in this city. If we go ahead with this plan, we will bury them. They’re struggling – people are afraid to go to the club – they are being intimidated,” Cllr O’Hanlon said.The members will now vote on an amendment to the plan that states Rhebogue will close.For full report, see the next edition of the LImerick Post.

Were you there for the industry’s greatest talking shop?

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Were you there for the industry’s greatest talking shop? previous nextHousing MarketWere you there for the industry’s greatest talking shop?The Negotiator Conference last Friday saw some 600 agents sign up to attend but if you weren’t there, here is a round-up of the key debates that took place.Nigel Lewis3rd December 20190653 Views If you were looking for the best high-wire acts from the world of property advice, opinion and insight then the Grosvenor Hotel on Park Lane was the place to be last Friday.Many of the key players from the industry were there to talk, as well as a plethora of small and medium size agent delegates keen to hear the key issues facing the industry.This included its looming regulation, the spread of new business models as well as how the online and hybrid agency market is maturing.The Negotiator conference kicked off with some intellectual gymnastics from Times columnist Danny Finkelstein who kept agents entertained with anecdotes from his ringside seat within the political circus.He then returned to his seat to steer a panel debate with Nick Leeming, Glynis Frew, Lucy Morton, Michael Stoop and Ian McKenzie who were all keen provide their views on why some agencies fail (they don’t insist on structured days for their negotiators) and others don’t (particularly when they embrace technology).After a quick coffee in the thronging exhibitor space, delegates returned to the main hall to watch a hoodie-wearing James Dearsley summarise the development of proptech thus far, followed by a swash buckling hour of soul-baring from former Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow.Aside from his ‘off the fence’ comments about the General Election and Brexit, he was asked which MP he’d trust enough to buy a property from, nominating Labour MP Hilary Benn.Quizzed on who he’d trust to sell his property, he chose recently-resigned Conservative MP and former Thatcher-era  minister Kenneth Clarke.After polishing off lunch, delegates heard a panel debate on industry regulation including presentations by David Cox of ARLA and Peter Bolton-King of RICS, but it was Lord Best who really caught delegates’ attention.He bravely warned agents that his RoPA regulations, which are very likely to become law by 2023, would reduce the size of the lettings industry by driving many agents out of business.The most controversial of the Negotiator conference panel debates then followed with representatives from eMoov, easyProperty and Accommodation.co.uk sparring with Finklestein and the audience. Ian Lancaster from research firm TwentyCI and Laurent Scott from the NAEA provided some context.As well as some direct questioning by the chair, the panellists answered some tough questions on whether training can really supplant local knowledge, whether ‘up front fees’ are really best for the consumer or the agent, and whether vendors really care only about price (rather than brand, service and knowledge).The day was rounded off with presentations by Zoopla’s Richard Donnell on the sales and lettings sectors – more of which here – and then a final panel debate on whether the high street, directly-employed estate agency business model can survive the onslaught of technology, online agents, rising costs and dwindling high-street footfall.This included Liam Doherty from London firm Orchards, which is in the process of exiting the high street, Nicky Stevenson from Keller Williams and David Alexander from self-employed lettings platform Apropos.The Negotiator Conference and Expo 2019 Danny Finkelstein easyProeprty Ian McKenzie James Dearsley Glynis Frew Lucy Morton Michael Stoop Nick Leeming accommodation.co.uk Emoov December 3, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
