first_imgSix-year-old Toussaint Birwe was killed by a 14-car State Department convoy that barreled through his hometown of Mokong in the African nation of Cameroon on April 18, 2016.The motorcade, carrying armed-to-the-teeth Navy SEALs, didn’t even stop. It was carrying that great defender of human rights, Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.Power was in Cameroon as part of U.S. imperialism’s “tilt toward Africa.” In 2014, the Pentagon carried out 674 military operations in that continent. (The Nation, April 15, 2015)To the generals in the U.S. African Command — Africom — Toussaint Birwe’s death was just “collateral damage.”The State Department eventually paid Toussaint Birwe’s African family $1,700, two cows and sacks of flour, rice, salt, sugar and onions in compensation. (New York Times, Dec. 16, 2016)That’s more than the $120 that Vietnamese families got when their children were killed by U.S. armed forces. Meanwhile, the Pentagon paid Michelin $600 for each rubber tree it destroyed during its carpet bombing of Vietnam. ( U.S. government refuses to pay any compensation to the hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese people suffering from Agent Orange, which was sprayed by U.S. planes,As Michael Jackson’s song pointed out, “They don’t really care about us.”Donald Trump certainly didn’t care about 200 undocumented Polish immigrant workers who tore down the old Bonwit Teller department store in order to build Trump Tower on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue.These workers labored in 12-hour shifts and many were poisoned by asbestos. Hired by a contractor for Trump, they were cheated out of wages and spent nearly 20 years in the courts to get any justice. (New York Times, June 14, 1998)“You people” Rich people have been running over poor children since the days of chariots.It was a common occurrence in France before the French Revolution. Charles Dickens wrote about it in “A Tale of Two Cities.”A passage in that book reads: “With a wild rattle and clatter … the carriage dashed through streets and swept round corners, with women screaming before it, and men clutching each other and clutching children out of its way. … At last, swooping at a street corner by a fountain, one of its wheels came to a sickening little jolt, and there was a loud cry from a number of voices, and the horses reared and plunged. …“‘What has gone wrong?’ said Monsieur, calmly looking out. …“‘Pardon, Monsieur the Marquis!” said a ragged and submissive man, ‘It is a child.’…“‘It is extraordinary to me,’ said he, ‘that you people cannot take care of yourselves and your children. One or the other of you is forever in the way. How do I know what injury you have done my horses. See! Give him that.’“He threw out a gold coin for the valet to pick up, and all the heads craned forward that all the eyes might look down at it as it fell. The tall man called out again with a most unearthly cry, ‘Dead!’”At least the Marquis was forced to stop. The State Department motorcade didn’t even do that for the African child it killed, although Ambassador Power was compelled to come back later.It was Ambassador Power who arrogantly asked, “Are you truly incapable of shame?” speaking of Syria, Iran and Russia in the United Nations Security Council after Aleppo was liberated. Mass graves of people tortured to death by U.S.-backed terrorists were found afterwards. (CBS, Dec. 26, 2016)Didn’t these victims have human rights, Ambassador Power?Never forget Gavin CatoAnother motorcade that “dashed through streets” killed a Black child in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn on Aug. 19, 1991. The caravan was carrying Rabbi Menahem Schneerson, the late head of the right-wing, racist Lubavitch religious cult, and was preceded by a police car.The last car ran through a red light and struck two Black children, killing seven-year-old Gavin Cato. A volunteer ambulance that arrived didn’t help Cato, but instead took the driver of the car that struck him. (New York Daily News, Aug. 13, 2016)Schneerson instructed his followers not to rent to people who weren’t Jewish. (Jewish Press, July 20, 1990) In Crown Heights that means not renting to Black people.Millions of Jewish people are rightfully concerned about neo-Nazi support for Donald Trump. But unlike the great majority of Jewish voters, most Lubavitch followers supported him. (, Nov. 16, 2016)Charles Dickens made sure the fictional Marquis got justice. Dickens wrote that the slain child’s father put a knife through the aristocrat’s heart and left a note reading, “Drive him fast to his tomb.”We need to drive a stake through capitalism’s putrid heart.

Having no signposts is critical,” Mr O’Rourke said.The OPW spokesman also spoke of the urgent need for coach parking and a tourist office in the West Limerick town as part of a plan to grow tourism in the region.After learning that ‘Newcastle West Medieval Complex’ was the official title to be bestowed on Desmond Hall by the OPW, Sinn Fein councillor Seamus Browne proposed that the local authority prevent this from happening.“This is a ridiculous name,” he said.“Desmond Hall has the potential to put Newcastle West on the map and I wouldn’t like to see the town miss out because of simple things like signage and parking.” Email WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsDesmond Hall to put West Limerick on the mapBy Alan Jacques – March 3, 2016 1465 Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Advertisement RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TAGSCllr Seamus BrowneDesmond HalllimerickLimerick City and County CouncilMunicipal District of Newcastle WestNewcastle WestOffice of Public Works (OPW)Sinn Fein center_img WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Facebook Twitter Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Print Linkedin Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live last_img read more

first_imgnarvikk/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(NEW YORK) — New daily COVID-19 cases in the United States hit a record 128,000 on Saturday as multiple states reported the highest number of positive infections since the pandemic began, according to the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center.Saturday marked the fourth straight day new COVID-19 cases surpassed 100,000 in the country, according to the data. In just the past week, 715,000 people nationwide have tested positive for the virus, the data shows.President-elect Joe Biden said in his victory speech Saturday night that he will assemble a coronavirus task force as early as Monday.“Folks, our work begins with getting COVID under control. We cannot repair the economy, restore our vitality or relish life’s most precious moments — hugging our grandchildren, our children, our birthdays, weddings, graduations, all the moments that matter most to us — until we get it under control,” Biden said.He said the task force will be comprised of leading scientists and experts who will work on coming up with an “action blueprint” to fight the virus beginning on Jan. 20, the first day of Biden’s administration.“That plan will be built on bedrock science,” Biden said. “It will be constructed out of compassion, empathy and concern. I will spare no effort, none, or any commitment to turn around this pandemic.”An ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted in late September indicated that 65% of Americans disapprove of President Donald Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis in the U.S.On Sunday, the number of coronavirus cases globally surpassed 50 million and deaths from the virus climbed to 1,253,707 as countries like France and Germany scrambled to cope with a second-wave of the virus, according to the Johns Hopkins data.The total number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. was nearing the 10 million mark on Sunday, and deaths nationwide rose to 237,425, according to the data.COVID-related hospitalization also rose in all parts of the country, and the numbers are now close to those seen during the first surges, in the spring and summer.Several states reported all-time high case counts on Saturday.Illinois reported 12,438 new COVID-19 cases, the highest daily total it has seen since the pandemic began. Illinois health officials also reported 76 additional deaths.State officials said hospital admissions have doubled or tripled in some areas of Illinois over the past 30 days.On Friday, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker pleaded with residents to wear masks when out in public and practice social distancing. The governor warned that more stringent mitigation measures, similar to his stay-at-home orders back in the spring, might have to be imposed to get a handle on the rising number of cases.“It’s the last thing I want to do, but I’m ready to do it,” Pritzker said.Other states were also reeling from climbing infection rates.Wisconsin reported 7,065 new cases on Saturday, setting a new single-day record and bringing the total number of cases to 263,130 since the pandemic started. About 4.8% of COVID-19 patients in Wisconsin have required hospitalization, according state health officials.Indiana also broke its single-day record for new COVID-19 cases for the fourth consecutive day when it reported 5,007 new cases on Friday. State health officials recorded 43 more deaths from the virus on Friday and said hospitalizations climbed to an all-time high of 2,036.Ohio also reported on Friday that it surpassed 5,000 new daily cases for the first time in the pandemic. The total number of positive cases in the state has now topped 240,00, and deaths rose by 33 on Friday. Now 5,494 people have died of the coronavirus in the state, according to the Ohio Department of Health.The new Ohio numbers were released just days after Gov. Mike DeWine pleaded in an open letter for residents to come together, regardless of political affiliation, to fight a “common enemy.”The Republican governor implored Ohioans to immediately pull together and focus on fighting the virus, saying “the stakes could not be higher” and “time is not on our side.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Marriage discrimination has come under the spotlight following the reportingof a case successfully brought against Derbyshire Police. Discrimination on the grounds of marital status is outlawed under the SexDiscrimination Act 1975, but there have been few examples in the employmentfield. Graham v Chief Constable of Derbyshire Police was brought by a senior femalepolice officer whose appointment to the post of area inspector was rescindedafter the chief constable learned her husband was commander of the samedivision. He argued Graham would not be a competent witness against her husbandin any criminal proceedings and it would be difficult for officers to complainto the commander about her. The EAT found Graham had been subject not only to indirect sexdiscrimination but also to direct marriage discrimination because she had beentreated less favourably than would an unmarried female officer in a comparableposition. Also, because the chief constable had failed to justify the rule thatco-habiting officers should not work in the same division, the EAT held thispolicy was also indirect marriage discrimination. The case follows a tribunal finding of direct marriage discrimination in Kayv Ripon Cathedral Choir School, after the offer of a headmistress post waswithdrawn following complaints from parents because the teacher’s husband ran alegal practice that was under official scrutiny. Discrimination law specialist Pauline Matthews said employers should reviewpolicies and practices to make sure they do not discriminate directly orindirectly against married people. “Any policy will have to be justifiable,” she warned. “Haveyou concrete examples of such relationships causing problems in the past? Canyou point to other organisations where there have been problems? “Derbyshire’s chief constable came unstuck because only one otherpolice force had a similar policy and the tribunal viewed his concerns asunfounded,” she warned.

first_imgSolicitors have warned that the government’s reluctance to intervene fully in the cladding scandal created by the Grenfell Tower fire and help all the leaseholders caught up in the debacle is beginning to cause major problems in the housing market.The Society of Licensed Conveyancers (SLC) is worried that the growing costs of replacing cladding and paying for waking watches will soon bankrupt thousands of leaseholders.Rishi Sunak announced a £1 billion fund to help pay for cladding remediation on private tower blocks but, despite this, many experts and campaigners have said it is ‘too little, to late’.SLC board member John Clay (pictured) says the government cannot rely on building owners to shoulder the cost and that Ministers must step in to act now before it is too late.“The consequences of not doing so will create a major problem in the housing market with thousands of first time buyers being deprived of properties to buy as there are so many flats now unsaleable, and the current owners unable to move up the housing ladder,” he says.“The Government has repeatedly stated that building owners should pay, but so far there are no signs that they will.”Clay also says that the looming Fire Safety Bill, which is due to receive Royal Assent any day, is likely to make matters even worse for leaseholders because it puts the initial financial onus on building owners which, he says, makes no sense.Even if building owners do pay for the remediation of unsafe cladding, the bill enables owners to recoup the costs from leaseholders. This will push many more leaseholder into bankcruptcy and render their homes unsaleable.The SLC has written to Robert Jenrick, Secretary of State at MHCLG, setting out in more detail the Society’s concerns and why Government intervention is necessary.Read our recent guest blog: Why has the government been so slow to tackle the cladding scandal.John Clay cladding scandal Robert Jenrick MHCLG SLC March 17, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
