750,000 demand Madrid ‘free the prisoners’

admin No Comments

first_imgSome 750,000 people took to the streets of Barcelona on Nov. 11 to demand the release of Catalan pro-independence political prisoners jailed by the Spanish regime in mid-October. The march also demanded an end to the Spanish takeover of the regional Catalan government.Jordi Sànchez, chairperson of the Catalan National Assembly, and Jordi Cuixart, head of the cultural association Òmnium Cultural, have been imprisoned since Oct. 16. The “two Jordis” are charged with “rebellion” for organizing massive peaceful demonstrations to defend an Oct. 1 referendum on independence from reprression by the Spanish state.Another eight ministers of the Catalan government, which the central Madrid government deposed by decree on Oct. 27, have also been charged with sedition and misuse of public funds — funds they used for carrying out the referendum.The rightist People’s Party (PP) government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy used Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution to deprive Catalonia of its guaranteed right to regional autonomy. Rajoy also ordered new regional elections for Dec. 21. The “Socialist” Party (PSOE) and the Citizens’ Party backed Rajoy’s takeover.The latest mass protest in Barcelona, coupled with a general strike and militant protest earlier that week, which stopped much of the rail and road traffic in the region, showed that the struggle for self-determination of Catalonia is still deep in the hearts of a large part of the population.In addition, whether in an independent Catalan republic or as part of the imperialist Spanish state, the workers of Catalonia will still be subject to the bosses’ attacks on their wages and social benefits. Since the 2008 worldwide capitalist crisis, Catalan’s working class, just as the workers in the rest of Spain, have been hit by massive unemployment, wage cuts and cuts in pensions, health care and education.Puigdemont in BrusselsThe deposed president of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, and four of his ministers have been in Brussels, the capital of the European Union, since Rajoy’s government brought charges against them. Puigdemont’s party, the European Democratic Party of Catalonia (Pdecat), has opted to take part in the Dec. 21 elections, even though the Spanish state is imposing the elections on the region.Puigdemont says he has chosen to run the campaign from Belgium rather than going back to Catalonia and being arrested. Another of the pro-independence parties, the Republican Left (ERC), has also opted to run in the elections. Unlike in the last elections, in which a joint pro-independence slate won a small majority in the assembly, the ERC says it will run separately on Dec. 21.Both the Pdecat and the ERC are pro-capitalist parties. They appeal to the European Union, even though the EU leaders have, up to now, sided with the Spanish state. An independent Catalonia, subject to the economic domination of EU imperialism and NATO membership, would do nothing to relieve the economic hardships of the Catalan working class.Meanwhile, Rajoy is attempting to stir up even greater chauvinism among those in all the regions who identify as Spanish. In the past decade especially, the PP, the PSOE, the monarchy and big business have all been exposed as corrupt exploiters. As expected, the last refuge of these scoundrels is Spanish patriotism and nationalism.The enemy of all the workers of the Spanish state — whether they identify as Catalan, Basque, Galician, Castilian or another nationality — is the imperialist ruling class and its parties running the Spanish state. That means mainly the PP and PSOE, the parties that have alternated in ruling over all the peoples of Spain since the 1978 “Transition.”Working-class solidarityFor working-class revolutionaries, the most important goal is to build solidarity among the workers of all nationalities. The only way to do this is to support the self-determination of all the peoples in the Spanish state. This was a cornerstone of the united front since Spain’s 1936-39 Civil War.In the Puerta del Sol plaza in the center of Madrid, a demonstration on Nov. 5 called by the Marches for Dignity and the S25 Platform denounced “the latest judicial actions taken against independentist political leaders” and defended the Catalan Republic.Before more than a thousand people, Ángeles Maestro, speaking for the Marches for Dignity, said that support for the Catalan people is not only a question of solidarity but of struggle against common enemies, including the PP, the PSOE, the Citizens’ Party and “the monarchy, the legislature and the court system and all the machinery that continues the heritage of the [Franco fascist] dictatorship.”Maestro ended by underlining “the absolute necessity of unity of all the peoples of the Spanish state against the Regime of 1978, that each people can’t do it alone, so there is a need to support each other in the historical memory of the anti-fascist resistance that raised the cry of ‘They shall not pass,’ that the struggle of the peoples has made their own, as the Catalans have now.” (lahaine.org, Nov. 5)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

At least nine journalists were killed in connection with their work in Mexico in 2018. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for a full investigation into the past weekend’s fatal shooting of local radio presenter Jesús Ramos Rodríguez, the second journalist to be murdered this year in Mexico, and reiterates its call to President López Obrador to prioritize combatting impunity for crimes of violence against media personnel.

Ramos was rushed to a hospital where he died several hours later. “The local and federal authorities who investigate this murder must consider all hypotheses, in particular, the possibility that it was linked to the victim’s work as a journalist,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau.

Chinese journalist gets 15 years in jail for denouncing Party corruption

They include Qin Yongmin, 66, a commentator sentenced to 13 years in prison in July 2018 for “inciting the subversion of state power,” RSF Press Freedom Award Laureate Huang Qi, 56, who is serving a 12-year jail term for “disclosure of state secrets abroad,” and Wu Gan, 47, a blogger sentenced to eight years in prison in December 2017 for “inciting subversion of state power.”China is ranked 177th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. last_img read more

As Herrera explains, working with a credit union as a member is different from a typical bank.“Personally, I believe that a credit union is a better option when it comes to banking,” he says. “I always tell people on our presentations that we’re not here to try and sell you anything, we are simply here to educate you on your banking options”.Credit unions are not like large banks, he explained.“Banks are owned by stockholders, so their focus is on creating profit to please them,” said Herrera. “Credit Unions are member owned and are not-for-profit so our focus is on giving back to our members.”Herrera and his fellow credit union employees visit local businesses and explain to them that the Credit Union is there to serve partner’s employees, who may not have a lot of financial experience.“Not everybody is financially savvy. Unfortunately, high schools and colleges are not teaching about basic finances,” he said.Herrera emphasizes that his teaching is about offering “simple financial principles to help you out, and better your financial situations. I mean it’s amazing how your financial stability can even be tied in to your health! If you have better financial understanding mind, it can possibly reduce your stress levels which might just give you a healthier lifestyle.”“We’re here to help our members and their financial needs and make things hopefully better for them,” Herrera added. “That’s how the credit union can help.As a member-owned financial institution, PSFCU has served the financial needs of Pasadena Unified and surrounding schools since 1936.Currently the credit union serves the greater San Gabriel Valley and is constantly adding new members, locations, products, and technologies to better serve members.You can visit Pasadena Service Federal Credit Union headquarters at 670 North Rosemead Boulevard, in Pasadena, or call (877) 297-4707 or visit their website https://www.mypsfcu.org.

Week-long Celebration of Women as MIC Marks International Women’s Day

admin No Comments

first_img TAGSAthena SWAN ProjectInternational Women’s DayKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostMary Immaculate CollegeMIC IN celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March, Mary Immaculate College (MIC) will host a number of online events throughout the week from 8-12 March. From roundtable discussions to public lectures and more, MIC will celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, while also examining the challenges facing women in today’s society. In light of this year’s theme of #ChooseToChallenge, these conversations will explore ways in which we can all challenge gender bias.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Organised by Edel Foster, Athena SWAN Project Manager, and Dr Jade Dillon, lecturer in the Department of English Language and Literature at MIC, the discussions throughout the week-long event will provide the public with different perspectives on topical issues such as Mother and Baby Homes and the impact of COVID-19 on women. In addition, conversations on the challenges facing women will explore sexual awareness, self-identity and stigmas surrounding the female body.Announcing details of MIC’s events for IWD 2021, Edel Foster, Athena SWAN Project Manager, said, “MIC celebrates International Women’s Day (and International Men’s Day in November) annually to demonstrate our commitment to gender equality. This commitment is in support of our Athena SWAN goals and Gender Action Plan, which sets out clear targets and goals in our journey to challenge gender bias and inequality. Our week-long celebration of women aims to highlight the importance of challenging biases and misconceptions in the interest of creating a more inclusive and gender-equal world. The progress towards gender equality is not just ‘for women’; we need the support of all genders.”Dr Jade Dillon added, “I would encourage everyone, male and female, to attend these events because they illustrate the myriad of gendered issues that affect women. Our events signify the importance of discussion and offer the opportunity to learn from one another. MIC Athena SWAN’s celebration of IWD 2021 is a powerful platform of knowledge, authenticity and action.”Some of the highlights of the week-long event include a roundtable discussion on the representation of women in the arts. Featuring contributions from two MIC graduates, Maria Flannery, multimedia journalist with RTÉ News, and Dr Paul McNamara, as well as Limerick based artist and illustrator,Helena Grimes, and Dr Carole Quigley from MIC’s Department of Drama and Theatre Studies, this discussion will also explore the impact of COVID-19 on the arts sector. Co-organiser of MIC’s IWD events and lecturer in the Department of English Language and Literature, Dr Jade Dillon, will present a public lecture on the representations of girlhood and the pubescent body in children’s literature. This discussion will have a particular focus on Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’.MIC PhD researcher, Santhi Corcoran, and Ann Piercy from the Midwest Migrant Community Network will speak about the work of this newly formed network, and in light of her role with GOSHH, Ann will also discuss the challenges currently being faced by women living with HIV. In addition, MIC graduate and postdoctoral researcher at the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre at NUI Galway, Dr Triona Waters, will reveal the harrowing stories of women and children resident in Limerick’s Lunatic Asylum during the years 1827 to 1907, while Helen O’Dea from MIC’s Medical Centre will present a webinar for teachers and parents exploring ways in which to discuss sexual health with children.According to Dr Jade Dillon, co-organiser of MIC’s IWD events, “These conversations not only highlight the challenges faced by women but also how we now challenge society in return. When we choose to challenge the perceived notion of normalcy, we enact change – a change that will lead to a better and equal world. By openly discussing and choosing to challenge stigmas surrounding the female body, we are progressing towards a more informed cohort whilst also giving agency back to those who have been silenced.”Edel Foster also commended the work of MIC’s FemFest organising committee noting, “Our IWD events are inspired by the amazing work of the MIC FemFest organising committee who have worked hard on creating a community of interest across all areas of MIC, as well as celebrating so many women’s achievements from outside MIC.”FREE ONLINE EVENTS8 March (10am): IWD Pilates with Nicola Brennan.

BCC hears request for historic district nomination

If so, the nomination would then be updated and submitted.”Bowden asked for the city’s support of the nominating efforts and also to bring community awareness of the efforts necessary in completing the nominations.“We want our citizens to be aware as to why people are walking around the city and in the neighborhoods taking photographs of buildings and homes,” Bowden said. “We also want our citizens to know that listing on the Alabama Register places no requirements or restrictions on the struc-tures that are listed.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Print Article Working from the council agenda, the council voted in support of a change in the personnel policy as it relates to the Brundidge Police De-partment.Brundidge Police Chief Marquez James requested a 12-hour shift for his officers and a four-day workweek. “That would give our officers two weekends off each month,” James said, adding that would facilitate the hiring and retention of officers.The council voted in favor of the personnel policy change as requested.

There has to be some kind of structure in place before we open the parks.”The council members all agreed there has to be structure to the opening of the parks, not just a place to play ball.“Ball is not a pacifier,” Mayor Isabell Boyd said. “The city can’t be a ba-by-sitting service.”Council Member Byron Gaynor, District 4, made a motion to table any action on the opening of the city parks.
