Class war in western Pennsylvania

first_imgNurses strike at Medical Center in Altoona, Pa.Altoona, Pa. — For more than three months, 142 locked-out members of Utility Workers Union Local 102 have walked the picket line in the freezing cold here in western Pennsylvania, demanding that Penelec — a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp. — give them back their jobs. The lockout began on Nov. 25, 2013, after the workers rejected the utility company’s contract offer.The bosses showed no mercy during the holiday season or when winter storms hit the area. The workers faced tough times, like something out of a Dickens novel.Then on Feb. 1, over 400 workers from 34 different unions throughout the small city of Altoona gathered for a solidarity rally with the electrical workers. The mood was militant. One worker told this reporter he would remember that day for the rest of his life.Though the weather continues to be bitterly cold, the workers are still walking the picket line while the head honchos of the company continue to wage class war.The solidarity displayed on Feb. 1 is exactly what is needed by these locked-out workers and for the entire working class, as companies throughout the land are on an offensive against them.Nurses stage one-day strikeOn Feb. 11, soon after the solidarity rally for the utility workers, hundreds of nurses at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Altoona, members of the Service Employees union, held a one-day strike demanding better staffing ratios. They were joined on the picket line by other hospital workers and supporters after company representatives had walked out of contract negotiations for a second time. In the evening, they held a candlelight vigil.The strike was to be for only one day, as the nurses were concerned about the welfare of the patients. However, on Feb. 12, nurses and others walked the picket line again. At one point, they marched to the hospital entrance, but most were prevented from entering. A protest rally was held later at the UPMC headquarters in Pittsburgh. One nurse on the picket line carried a sign reading “Patients before Profits,” which seemed to sum up the sentiments of all the strikers.As of Feb. 28, after all the nurses had returned to work, they were voting on a new contract offer from the hospital.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Cop charged for autoworker’s near-lynching

first_imgFloyd DentDetroit — All too often racist police get away with murder. Brutal physical assaults against people of color go unpunished. Rarely are violent police charged for the crimes they commit, and in most cases they don’t even lose their jobs.Instead, the victims are treated as perpetrators. That’s what happened to Floyd Dent, a 57-year-old African-American Ford worker whose near-murder outside Detroit was seen by millions on video. Their own crimes apparent, cops then concocted evidence to charge Dent with assault, resisting arrest and drug possession.Now that Black Lives Matter has emerged as a powerful, growing movement that won’t back down, the masses in the streets are scoring a few — far too few — victories.Floyd Dent won a small but significant victory against systemic racism in Inkster, Mich., possibly one with historic ramifications, when the state took action against the police.William “Robocop” Melendez, who was seen punching Floyd Dent repeatedly after a traffic stop, was charged by Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy with one count of assault and one of abuse of a prisoner. These two charges combined carry a maximum 15-year sentence. Before the charges were announced, Melendez was fired by the city of Inkster, where the beating took place. After Worthy’s announcement, Highland Park, where he worked part-time, also relieved him of his duties.Why Melendez is ‘Robocop’The actions taken against Melendez are long overdue. He earned the nickname Robocop during a long, sordid career on Detroit’s force. That’s where his modus operandi was to brutalize and terrorize and then plant “evidence” on and write phony reports about his victims.Melendez fatally shot two African-American men. He finally resigned for filing false documentation after his propensity to lie became scandalous. Nevertheless, Inkster and Highland Park, two majority-Black suburbs of Detroit, hired this brutal cop.Soon after the charges against Melendez were announced, Inkster Police Chief Vicki Yost resigned. Like 80 percent of Inkster police, Yost is white. Inkster’s population is 75 percent Black. Before she became Inkster’s top cop, Yost too had a racist reputation in Detroit, where she had testified on behalf of her partner after he killed an unarmed man.The phony drug charges against Dent have now been dropped. A month earlier a judge dropped the other charges after seeing the video. Dent and attorney Greg Rohl are not satisfied with this victory, however, which was only won after hundreds demonstrated and packed the courtroom. Rohl wants the eight white cops who witnessed and participated in the horrific assault to also be charged.The systemic racism of Inkster and Henry FordInkster’s very existence is rooted in racism. In 1917 the Ford Motor Company began construction of the gargantuan River Rouge complex in Dearborn, Mich., where Ford moved its world headquarters soon thereafter. Dearborn was off-limits to Black people, including the many who found jobs at the Rouge plant.Henry Ford promoted segregation by financing the growth and development of adjoining Inkster. Black autoworkers were able to purchase affordable homes, enjoy good city services and live close to the plant. Yet Ford’s “benevolence” was illusory; Black workers were paid $4 a day during the Depression, but $3 were deducted to fund Inkster’s expansion.The Rouge plant itself once employed 100,000 workers, but now there are just over 50,000 hourly Ford workers in the whole country. Plant closings and the elimination of jobs through technology have impoverished Inkster. The state of Michigan seized financial control of the city and dissolved its school district.Police brutality is a huge issue in Inkster. After the Dent case became public, attorney Rohl received over 20 calls alleging mistreatment by the city’s cops. An April 3 march supporting Dent also demanded “Justice for Inkster.”Orville Hubbard, Dearborn’s mayor from 1948-78, was known during his tenure as the most segregationist mayor north of the Mason-Dixon line. Everyone knew his slogan, “Keep Dearborn clean,” really meant keep Dearborn segregated. Today the population of Dearborn is still less than 5 percent African American.However, 40 percent of Dearborn residents are of Middle Eastern descent. The Council on American-Islamic Relations and the anti-Islamophobia group Take on Hate sponsored the April 3 march. A contingent of several dozen Arab youth followed the banner of Take on Hate to show solidarity with Dent.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

New Jersey: Anti-racists rally in support of Islamic Community Center

first_imgBayonne, N.J. — More than 200 people came out here on Jan. 19 to stand in solidarity with the Muslim community in the face of a right-wing, racist attack on their application to build an Islamic community center on the site of an old warehouse.A racist group, announcing they were supporters of Donald Trump and Pamela Geller, had said they would hold a protest at the Bayonne Zoning Board meeting to oppose an Islamic community center. The board had called the special session to take up the Muslim community’s zoning application for the center. The group’s letterhead and many neighborhood signs have attempted, through use of 9/11 and Twin Tower images, to frighten Bayonne residents.The media in New Jersey had reported this opposition as if it represented the whole community.But the strong, unified response to this threatening, anti-Muslim rally clearly exposed them as a narrow, bigoted grouping without community support.The rally showing support for the Islamic community center, although organized in only three days, was far larger, very multinational and drew community support from Bayonne and other parts of Hudson County, including Jersey City, which borders Bayonne.The Jersey City Peace Movement and the International Action Center set up a Facebook event page, “Stand with our Muslim Neighbors,” and began making calls to area community activists two days before the rally. Veterans For Peace Chapter 21, N.J. Peace Action, Action 21 and Food Not Bombs immediately responded with their own round of calls and emails. Gene Forrest, a Bayonne high school teacher and lifelong resident of Bayonne, also started reaching out in Bayonne with a Facebook page message to “Show Our Solidarity.”Some 50 signs with the slogan “No to racism and anti-Muslim bigotry” were quickly distributed. Four television stations and many other reporters showed up. Initially, they clustered almost exclusively around the small group of racists on one side of a barricade, all but ignoring the far larger anti-racist group on the other side — until the activists demanded coverage.Both sides packed into the zoning board hearing. The zoning application for the Islamic center was the only agenda item. The session lasted almost four hours and gave endless time for the opponents of the Islamic community center to treat the hearing like an Inquisition. The zoning board, a body that is all men and white except for one Latino business owner, hardly represents Bayonne. They made no effort to rule out of order the insulting harangues of opponents of the proposed center. Then, they declared that still another hearing would be needed in two months to have time for further questions.The next hearing is slated for Monday, March 14, at 6 p.m. Supporters of the Muslim community’s right to build their center pledged their continued solidarity.Flounders is a 25-year resident of Jersey City, N.J.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist and human rights activist sentenced to four years in prison

first_imgNews More than six years in prison for Uzbek blogger who covered corruption Reporters Without Borders today denounced as “disgraceful” a four-year prison sentence imposed on Uzbekistan journalist and human rights activist Ruslan Sharipov by a Tashkent court and called for his immediate release, as well as an enquiry into face injuries visible on him at the 25 September appeal hearing and other violence against him in detention. Follow the news on Uzbekistan New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council On 5 September, Sharipov wrote to UN secretary-general Kofi Annan saying he had “confessed” after being physically and psychologically tortured, threatened with death and forced to sign a bogus farewell letter to make it look as if he had killed himself in case he died in prison.He said interior ministry agents had also threatened to beat up his lawyers if he did not dismiss them. One of them, human rights activist Surat Ikramov, was attacked by four thugs in Tashkent on 28 August just after he had been to see the judge in charge of the case on the eve of a planned demonstration in support of Sharipov.A former head of the Union of Independent Journalists of Uzbekistan (UIJU) and the local correspondent for the Russian news agency Prima, Sharipov was arrested on 26 March this year. On 8 August, he was forced to “confess,” dismiss his lawyer and ask President Islam Karimov to forgive him for everything he had written criticising the authorities. The Mirzo Ulug-Beg district court in Tashkent then handed down the prison term on 23 August. Sharipov, who has never denied he is bisexual, told Vasilya Inoyatova, head of the Uzbekistan human rights organisation E’zguilik, that he does not know the alleged victims, who had been arrested on 26 May and held for several days. His lawyer said the youths were beaten and threatened by police to get them to give evidence in court. The case was postponed several times because of their absence from the courtroom. Reporters Without Borders today denounced as “disgraceful” a four-year prison sentence imposed on Uzbekistan journalist and human rights activist Ruslan Sharipov by a Tashkent court and called for his immediate release, as well as an enquiry into face injuries visible on him at the 25 September appeal hearing and other violence against him in detention.The court cut his original sentence of five and half years for homosexuality (article 120 of the criminal code) and for sexual relations with a minor (article 128) and withdrew the charge of inciting minors to anti-social behaviour (article 127). He is expected to appeal further to the supreme court.”This was a dreadful trial of a man who has for years been under government pressure to give up his human rights campaigning and stop criticising the authorities,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “This, as well as pressure on him to confess, the beating up of his lawyer on 28 August and the violation of legal defence rights seem part of an effort to silence the country’s most outspoken dissidents. Every day he spends in prison means more risk of being tortured and threatened.” He called for an investigation of the lack of defence rights.Several journalists, human rights activists and Western diplomats were barred from the closed appeal court hearing. Officials told the court Sharipov’s face injuries came from a road accident in which he was the only person injured. The judge, Shaygiaz Sharakhmetov, refused to adjourn the hearing even though Sharipov needed medical treatment. The judge had refused to free him on bail two days earlier when defence lawyers said they were being obstructed in preparing the appeal.

TV Azteca gives up hope of finding two journalists who went missing two months ago

first_img Help by sharing this information July 11, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 TV Azteca gives up hope of finding two journalists who went missing two months ago NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders fears the worst after the disappearance of TV Azteca Noroeste reporter Gamaliel López Candanosa and Gerardo Paredes Pérez on 10 May in Monterrey. For the past six months, López’s beat was general news and crime, in a region where drug traffickers are active. Alfonso Teja, TV Azteca’s news director in Monterrey (in the northern state of Nuevo León), said yesterday he has “given up hope” that two employees who went missing on 10 May, reporter Gamaliel López and cameraman Gerardo Paredes, will be found alive. “The state attorney general’s office has told us the anti-kidnapping unit that was investigating their disappearance has abandoned the case,” Agence France-Presse quoted him as saying. “We have received no message from the journalists and the police have told us they have no clue as to where they might be.” Asked if he thought organised crime was behind their abduction, Teja acknowledged that López had “ventured into sensitive territory.”Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to continue the investigation.____________________________________________________________15.05.07 – TV reporter and cameraman missing for past five days in MonterreyReporters Without Borders today said it feared the worst after the disappearance of TV Azteca Noroeste reporter Gamaliel López Candanosa and cameraman Gerardo Paredes Pérez on 10 May in Monterrey, in the northeastern state of Nuevo León, and called on the authorities to step up the search for the two journalists.“This brings the number of journalists who have gone missing since 2003 without being found to seven,” the press freedom organisation said. “Saúl Martínez Ortega, a journalist who disappeared on 16 April in the state of Sonora, was found murdered nine days later. So we have ever reason to fear the worst, especially as Nuevo León is particularly exposed to organised crime and drug trafficking. We appeal to the local and federal authorities to work together to find López and Paredes quickly.”The last time the two journalists checked in with their TV station was at about 4 p.m. on 10 May, after covering the birth of conjoined twins in a Monterrey hospital. The TV station vehicle they were using has not been found. The Nuevo León state police “anti-kidnapping” unit was asked to investigate after their disappearance was reported on the evening of 13 May, the Monterrey prosecutor’s office said.López has worked for TV Azteca Noroeste for 11 years. The station’s management told Reporters Without Borders that “for six months he covered the army’s presence in the region because of the violence.” The Milenio daily newspaper said López had profiled alleged murderers in June 2006 and covered two messages left by a drug trafficker. The station’s management also told Reporters Without Borders he has a regular slot in which he takes issue with the practices of certain public officials.

The judgements on coal block and 2G spectrum allocations and cancellation of iron or mining licences in Karnataka and Goa were delivered during the previous UPA regime and had played a big role in anti-corruption movements in the country against the then government.Speaking on the current practice of holding hearings via video conferencing during the health crisis caused by coronavirus, Rohatgi said that there are some issues with the technical aspect of the system but it can be improved and built on and can help build the Bar also.He expressed happiness over the apex court’s decision to ensure that more benches will hear cases in the coming days.While talking about the major judgments delivered by the apex court since independence, Rohatgi said, “In its zeal to uphold the environment, in its zeal to correct government orders and inactions, the Supreme Court dealt a serious blow to the economy of the nation. One such example is cancelling all allocations of the coal mines across the country.”Lakhs and crores of foreign investments, lakhs and crores of equipment, infrastructure and lakhs of jobs were thrown overboard when the court set aside and cancelled all the allocations of coal blocks and coal mines, because the government did not follow the law correctly. It should have seen the economic impact.” He added that the “same thing happened in the 2G case. There was a great loss to the country. Cancelling iron ore mines in Goa and Karnataka is yet another case of such kind. The court should have seen the economic impact before rendering such judgments. The Supreme Court lost its way”.Expressing his displeasure over the way judges in the Supreme Court as well as high courts are appointed, he said under the Constitution, they have to be appointed by the President of India, “which means government of the day since the President is guided by the will of the government”.”But unfortunately, by a judgement delivered recently (NJAC judgment), the court has not gone on with this principle that the government will appoint the judges and that it will consult the Chief Justice.”Unfortunately the consultation has rendered to be the concurrence of the Chief Justice which was not meant to be and now the role rests only in the Chief Justice to appoint the judges,” Rohatgi said.He further added, “The Supreme Court should graciously give up its right to be the sole body to appoint the judges. In no country, judges solely appoint themselves. There should be fresh blood, fresh insight, fresh views so as to find out who are the good judges.” According to him, the appointments in the Supreme Court should be on merit where seniority might play a part but not that their seniority will outweigh merits. “In the last 20 years mostly only chief justices of the high courts are appointed to the Supreme Court only because of the seniority and very few judges go according to merit and merit alone,” he said.He further said that to reduce pendency of the cases, the Supreme Court must have time management. It must not allow the arguments to go on for days as is the current system. Lawyers also must understand this as they are primarily guilty. “Artificial intelligence must also be used to club all kinds of cases together so one case can decide the fate of thousand others,” he added. While talking about the journey of the Supreme Court since independence, Rohatgi said that the decade of 70s was the “stormiest and most turbulent decade for the country and also for the Constitution and the Supreme Court”.He mentioned about various important cases passed since independence, including the ADM Jabalpur case, Kesavananda Bharati case and Goloknath case.Referring to the imposition of emergency, Rohatgi said that senior judges were superseded and junior ones were made CJIs.The event was organised by Akhil Bharatiya Adhivakta Parishad, a lawyers organisation related to the RSS.Dubbed as the father of modern Indian legal education, Menon passed away in May 2019 at the age of 84. He was credited for revolutionising the field of legal education by establishing national law schools.Next Storylast_img read more
