By Lucha Rodriguez and Janet MillerSantiago, ChileThousands of women and their supporters took to the streets in Valparaiso and Santiago, Chile, on Nov. 25 to demand an end to violence against women and children in their country. Every sector of women participated in the large marches, including trade unionists, members of lesbian organizations, Indigenous women and students.Organized by the Chilean Network Against Violence Toward Women, the loud, militant protest occupied almost 20 blocks of a large boulevard here in the capital. Protesters chanted along the way, while paste-up teams plastered the sidewalk with information as the march went by.Demonstrators demanded a response by the government to the frequent violence victimizing women. Although this was the march’s main theme, there were contingents demanding abortion rights, lesbian/bi rights, equal pay for women and an end to male chauvinism.Chants were loud and forceful. One demanded women get out of the kitchen, and another criticized the Catholic church: “Get your rosary out of my vagina.” Many of the main organizers were from the universities.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
The U.S. has occupied part of Cuba for over 115 years. On Feb. 23, 1903, the U.S. coerced Cuba into signing a lease agreement ceding land in eastern Cuba for the U.S. Guantanamo naval base called GTMO.The naval base still sits astride, dominates and restricts entry to Cuba’s Guantánamo Bay.Now the Coalition to Close U.S. Foreign Bases has unanimously called for the U.S. to return that land to Cuba. At its Jan. 12-14 Baltimore conference, CCUSFB adopted a resolution for days of action on or around Feb. 23 to end the U.S. occupation.This important call is the first time in recent memory that an organization outside the Cuba solidarity movement has called for a united action defending Cuban sovereignty.The 1903 agreement, renewed in 1934, granted U.S. domination over the area of the Guantanamo naval base without an end date. The agreement requires both parties to agree to end the lease agreement, according to material produced by MOVPAZ (the Cuban Movement for Peace and Sovereignty of Peoples).Since the 1959 revolution established Cuban sovereignty and self-determination, the Cuban government has demanded that the U.S. vacate its illegally held naval base and return control of that land to Cuba. The U.S. has issued lease payments — now $4,085 per year — but these pile up, uncashed by Cuba, except for the first one before the revolutionary government was fully consolidated. The Cuban position is clear: “All Guantánamo is ours.”Seventeen years ago, on Jan. 11, 2001, a notorious special torture prison for U.S. detainees was placed in the U.S. Guantanamo naval base. Since that time, an outcry has exposed the inhuman and illegal conditions, including force feedings dramatized by well-known rap recording artist and actor Mos Def, now Yasiin Bey, who endured such torture on video to inform the world.But this movement against the GTMO prison has failed to make a demand that would prevent the imperialist monster from desecrating Cuban territory with anti-human actions that would never be allowed on territory under Cuban sovereignty. The demand should be to return Guantanamo to the Cuban people, the rightful owners, where it can never again be used for such a purpose.According to the 2018 State of the Union address, the current U.S. president seeks to expand the U.S. use of GTMO. Everyone concerned about U.S. crimes should demand: U.S. out of Guantánamo, now!Guantanamo, more than a prisonThe 45 square miles occupied by U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (the base’s official name) is less than 0.2 percent of Cuba’s 2,389-square-mile Guantánamo province. The bay itself is 12 miles long and six miles across.But more than these numbers is what a 1927 U.S. Navy museum photo captures of the vastness of Guantánamo Bay. The photo shows a U.S. fleet at anchor where the U.S. naval base sits, astride the entrance to the huge bay, blocking Cuban access to the sea and to the best fishing areas in the bay itself.More than 200,000 people live in Guantánamo, the capital city of Guantánamo province. Since 1959, the Cuban revolution has protected the Cuban people living close to the base from the predation and exploitation feared and experienced by communities near U.S. foreign bases in countries still allied with U.S. imperialism. In a 37-minute documentary, “All Guantánamo Is Ours,” filmmaker Hernando Calvo Ospina uses historical photos and testimony to demonstrate the conditions before the socialist revolution. (youtube.com/watch?v=XKEs4mE7INs) Yet the corporate U.S. news media ignore the people of Guantánamo.U.S. interrupts Cuba’s fight for independenceIn June 1898, U.S. troops landed at Guantánamo Bay. Although the U.S. naval base was leased in 1903, according to Cuban historians, the U.S. has maintained an ongoing presence since 1898. The U.S. intervened militarily after the Cuban people already had been fighting for independence from Spain for 30 years and were near victory.Then Cubans were excluded from the Dec. 10, 1898, Treaty of Paris, in which Spain relinquished Cuba, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Philippines to the U.S.Cuban independence was finally won on Jan. 1, 1959, when the U.S.-backed Batista dictatorship fled Havana and the July 26 Movement triumphed. Led by Fidel Castro, Raúl Castro, Che Guevara, Camilo Cienfuegos, Vilma Espín, Celia Sánchez, Haydee Santamaría and a host of other revolutionary heroes, they birthed a Cuba on the path to the better socialist world we know is possible.The U.S. military and capitalist ruling class continue their attempt to dominate the Caribbean, Latin America and the world through blockades, sanctions and threats of nuclear war. Cuba continues to show the way forward through unity and solidarity with the workers and oppressed of the world.U.S. out of Guantánamo!End the genocidal U.S. blockade of Cuba!End all U.S. travel restrictions and regime change programs!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The Bench of Acting Chief Justice Sanjay Yadav and Vijay Kumar Shukla was hearing the plea filed by Social organisation Bandhua Mukti Morcha concerning the difficulties faced by the labourers, who migrated from other states to MP during pandemic. The organisation sought a direction to the MP Government to grant relief to these labourers, who returned to MP after being rendered jobless during pandemic COVID-19 outbreak. In the reply filed by the State, it was submitted that about 740440 migrant labourers got registered during the pandemic and the Government has given employment to 44634 labourers. However, the Court was not satisfied by the chart produced by the State and its functionaries. Instead, the Court said that they are required to draw out a definite plan to rehabilitate these migrated labours so that they can earn their livelihood in their parent State. The Court directed the State to draw out a definite plan by next date along with status report qua other facilities which are being extended to the migrated labourers who have been identified for extending the benefit under respective schemes. The matter has been listed for further hearing in the week commencing 18.01.2021. Earlier in a momentous step, the Supreme Court (a Bench comprising of Justice Ashok Bhushan, S K Kaul and M R Shah) on 26th May took Suo Motu cognisance of the problems and miseries of migrant labourers who have been stranded in different parts of the country amid the Coronavirus-induced lockdown. Further, on 9th June the Supreme Court had passed a slew of directions and had asked all the States and UTs to identify stranded migrants and transport them back to native places On 12th May, the Gujarat High Court (a division bench comprising Justices J. B. Pardiwala and Ilesh J. Vora) had taken suo moto notice of the various news reports about the sufferings of migrant workers, daily wage earners and the poor people during the lockdown. It may be noted that considering the plight of migrant labourers who are without food, the Madras High Court in July 2020 had directed the State Government to provide ration supplies to migrant labourers, after satisfying that they are really migrant labourers, irrespective of whether they have ration cards or not. Significantly, the Central Government in September 2020 said in the Lok Sabha that it does not have any data on the number of migrants who died amid the Covid induced Lockdown. Three MPs— K. Navaskani, Suresh Narayan Dhanorkar and Adoor Prakash had asked whether the Government is aware that a number of migrant workers lost lives during their return to the hometown and if so, the details of the same, State-wise.

June 10, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 10th June 2019 at 8:55 pmWell done to the Bruce’s – Purplebricks has been Goldenbricks for them, and even Mr Woodford is ahead of the game (in terms of getting money out of Purplebricks), though it is questionable that his daytime job – running an investment portfolio of only a limited amount of companies – which has dropped by over 60% in value in recent times – will be scoring points with those investors who invested with him.Purplebricks if it survives in its present form might limp along hoovering up those vendors who want to play Russian roulette with an upfront model, which pays off 50% of the time, if the property listed is 260k in value or less – but a pure online agency – is not going to be the system of the future for a ‘contact sport’ like estate agency – the human factor is still an extremely important part of the mix.Axel Springer – that is the interesting factor – they paid for shares a year ago at three times the level they are now able to buy shares at – so on the one hand – a great time to gain control of the business – but on the flip side – having a controlling interest of a business that does not make profit – is that a logical step?Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail Evansville, IN – John McNaughton, a local artist and former USI Art Department Chair created a sculpture over two decades ago that has become a staple of Victory Theatre’s Sixth Street Lobby. Created from walnut, McNaughton originally was commissioned for $8,000 from Bristol-Meyers Squibb where it hung in the lobby of the Evansville offices until came down for remodeling and donated to Evansville. ‘Waves of the Future’ spent three years in storage until this 16-foot-long wooden sculpture found its home on the East wall of Victory Theatre’s Sixth Street Lobby.On June 13, 2017, ‘Waves of the Future’ will become ‘Showtime’ and will be given a more visible placement with more protection inside Victory Theatre. This piece, made of walnut because this region is known for its Walnut Trees, was originally created, and named to represent how close the piece was to the river and the indicative of the future of medicine. The new name, ‘Showtime,’ will represent the variety of shows that are held at Victory Theatre. Today, if McNaughton was asked to create this same rhythmic tubular wooden design, it would be commissioned for anywhere between $20,000 to $25,000.
