Ambassador praises Anglican Communion, calls for women’s equality

Photo: ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] Long-time champion of protection for women and children, Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury on March 5 paid tribute to the work of the Anglican Communion to end violence against women and girls.At a United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) side event hosted by the Anglican Communion Office at the UN (ACOUN) at the Chapel of Christ the Lord in New York, Chowdhury gave a speech titled “End of Violence is not the End – Ensure Women’s Equality.”Introduced by ACOUN founding member Marnie Dawson Carr as a man of “effective action,” Chowdhury — a tireless spokesperson for peace, women, children, and the poorest segment of humanity — began by paying tribute to those across the Anglican Communion working to end violence against women around the world.“I was very happy to learn about what the Anglican Communion does with regard to the issues before the United Nations, particularly on issues which effect women’s participation in society. Trafficking is a major area of interest for the Anglican Communion and I am very happy that it has been so because that’s an area that has not received our attention…Congratulations to all of you for that.”The ambassador, a Bangladeshi, gave an impassioned plea for women to be treated equally in all areas of life. “There is no time to lose,” he said. “We need to continue our struggle even with greater vigour … We should never forget when women are marginalised there is little chance for the world to get sustainable peace and development in the real sense.”He said that to achieve “optimal wellness” for the planet, the nations of the world had to value both men and women equally and ensure women’s participation at the highest levels of decision-making, particularly in conflict reconciliation.In a question-and-answer session following the speech, one of the young Anglican women delegates asked, “What advice would you give young girls just starting on their journey of equality?”He answered, “It is important for you to recognize and convince yourself of the inherent equality between two human beings. Try to assert that whenever the opportunity comes. Do not sit back and fear [that you] will be the only person to say that. It is not necessary … to be aggressive or abusive or outspoken in an uncivilised way. You can assert your point in gentle but firm ways.”He added that girls should let those around them — in their workplace, community and family — know that they have determined to be equal. “I would say that you should convince yourself that ‘I am equal to everybody.’ Don’t take it upon yourself [to believe] this is not a girl’s area [or] this is a girl’s role. As a human being you are equal, and equal to everybody.”The ambassador also stressed that equality begins in the home with girls and boys being taught to treat one another as equals.Following the presentation, the Rev. Terrie Robinson, coordinator of the Anglican Communion’s networks and women’s desk officer, said, “The ambassador’s presentation spoke to many issues at heart of the growing Anglican movement to end violence against women and girls. The Anglican Church of Southern Africa and the Church of North India have already shown how effective partnerships can tackle trafficking in the areas of prevention, protection, and the care and rehabilitation of survivors.“Tomorrow, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church will be taking advantage of the gathering of Anglican women in New York to host a churchwide conversation on trafficking. As people of faith rooted in our communities we have so much to contribute in working against violence in all its forms.”The Anglican delegation of women from around the Anglican Communion is engaging with this year’s priority theme for the Commission on the Status of Women: the “Elimination and Prevention of all Forms of Violence Against Women and Girls.”The women are sharing experiences and highlighting issues of concern as well as the progress that has been made for women in their respective regions. Each delegate will represent her own Anglican province and bring local knowledge and insights from many countries, including Australia, Brazil, Burundi, Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Nigeria, Peru, Sri Lanka, South Sudan, England, Scotland, the United States, South Africa and Zimbabwe.For more information about the Anglican Communion delegation at the U.N.

Anglican Vicar of Baghdad: ‘Child I baptized cut in half…

first_img John Fisher says: Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT [Anglican Communion News Service] The five-year-old son of a founding member of Baghdad’s Anglican church was cut in half during an attack by the Islamic State1 on the Christian town of Qaraqosh.In an interview Aug. 8, an emotional Canon Andrew White told ACNS that he christened the boy several years ago, and that the child’s parents had named the lad Andrew after him.Canon Andrew White Photo: Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East“I’m almost in tears because I’ve just had somebody in my room whose little child was cut in half,” he said. “I baptized his child in my church in Baghdad. This little boy, they named him after me – he was called Andrew.”The fact that Andrew’s brother was named George after St George’s Anglican Church in Iraq’s capital demonstrates the strong ties the family had to the church there. The boy’s father had been a founder member of the church back in 1998 when the Canon had first come to Baghdad. White added, “This man, before he retired north to join his family was the caretaker of the Anglican church.”Baghdad is part of the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf, which is included in the Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East, a member church of the Anglican Communion.Though the move north should have proved safer for the Iraqi Christian family, the Islamic State made sure that it became a place of terror. “This town of Qaraqosh is a Christian village so they knew everybody there was part of their target group,” said White. “They [the Islamic State] attacked the whole of the town. They bombed it, they shot at people.”The Islamic State group captured Qaraqosh overnight Aug. 6/7 after the withdrawal of Kurdish forces.ISIS, which has been called a “brutal, extremist group” and which claims to have fighters from across the world, announced the creation of a “caliphate” – an Islamic state – across its claimed territory in Iraq and Syria a month ago. There is a BBC background report here and one from the New York Times here.The boy’s family, along with many other townspeople, has now fled to Irbil. However, news reports suggest this may be the Islamic State’s next destination.Anglicans at the forefront of reliefThe violent takeover of parts of Iraq by the Islamic State is threatening to bring about what the United Nations has said would be a “humanitarian catastrophe” in the beleaguered nation.White said that Anglicans there have been working hard to provide a lot of support for the Christians who have fled Mosul and Nineveh to the north, as well as the many other minority groups targeted by the Islamic State.“Anglicans are literally at the forefront of bringing help in this situation and there’s no-one else,” he said adding that the church is supplying much-needed food, water, accommodation and other relief items thanks to financial contributions from supporters overseas. The church’s activities are led by a Muslim, Dr. Sarah Ahmed.“We need two things: prayer and money. With those two we can do something. Without those we can do nothing.”As regards prayer, White said, “I have three ‘P’s that I always mention which is for protection, provision and perseverance. We need protection, we need to provide for those people and we need to keep going.”It’s clear from social media posts on Facebook and Twitter that members of the Anglican Communion right across the world are praying for this situation. Many have also indicated their support for persecuted Christians in Iraq by changing their social media avatars to the Arabic symbol for “N” denoting Nazarene, which ISIS has been using to identify Christian homes.Leaders speak outIn recent days, Anglican leaders from countries including Egypt, Wales, Brazil and South Africa have all expressed their dismay at the situation unfolding in Iraq.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby issued this statement Aug. 8 on the situation in Iraq, shortly before he travelled from the Philippines to Papua New Guinea.Other Christian leaders have also spoken up about the situation in Iraq including Roman Catholics, who, in England and Wales, have designated Aug. 9, as a Day of Prayer for Christians in Iraq. The Syrian Orthodox Patriarch Aug. 7 wrote to the United Nations, following an emergency meeting of patriarchs, calling on the UN Security Council to “fulfill their responsibilities in stopping this genocide.”Those wanting to assist the church in Baghdad can find more information here. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Knoxville, TN The Rev Donald Heacock says: An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET August 8, 2014 at 4:53 pm We keep you in our prayers… August 9, 2014 at 6:18 pm I agree with Martin Towensend completely. I also ask when will the Presiding Bishop, House of Bishops, and other ECUSA leaders stand up, speak out and call for the USA and other nations to act to protect and defend Christians under persecution? Rector Belleville, IL August 11, 2014 at 2:12 am Not true at all. Every Muslim government, every Quranic scholar I’m familiar with, all the Muslims I know personally and the heads of the largest mosques in Turkey, Egypt, America, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and even the Taliban and Al Qaeda have condemned them. They are universally hated by the every Muslim country to the extent that even the Saudis, Iranians and Israelis have united against them. The Turks have even urged the Iraqi Kurds to declare independence in order to defend themselves against ISIS. They kill Shia, Alawaites, Sufis and non-Salafi Sunnis out of hand as heretics.So no, “Muslims” do not support them. Fatwas have been issued stating that ISIS has put itself outside the community of Believers. Martin Townsend says: August 10, 2014 at 7:10 am These are evil living beings may we stamp out this barbaric religion this is pure evil Cathedral Dean Boise, ID KevinAtkinson says: August 8, 2014 at 7:44 pm As horrible as it is, please document all atrocities as much as possible. I do not doubt this account, and it may be extremely difficult to talk about it, but it is necessary for the world to know exactly what is happening with as much veracity as possible. Pres. Obama has already ordered limited military action against ISIS, and we must now seriously examine the Christian doctrine of just war. John Fisher says: Rector Hopkinsville, KY August 9, 2014 at 6:06 pm I would like to know why the liberals blame America for what ever happens in the world. We have stepped out of the world stage because your man Obama wants us to have a small footprint. Now look at what has happened, oh yes you are still blaming Bush. These monsters understand strength and weakness.And they sense weakness in our leadership.. I don’t think most liberals would know evil until if came up and shot them in the face. America wake up! Constance Morgan says: August 8, 2014 at 5:39 pm Archbishop Welby spoke sensibly of “the culture of impunity which has allowed these atrocities to take place.” As we pray for victims and work to support them as refugees, our international voice must bring others along to challenge that perverse culture of impunity. Robert Coates says: Pat Henry says: Kelsey Pasquarell says: August 9, 2014 at 2:03 pm Cannon Andrew White, You came to visit us at Truro in VA a few years ago, and somehow, in the midst of recounting all of the persecution your congregation faced, you burst into song, “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart.” That has stuck with me all this time, and I pray that you can still do that. God’s plan and great love is incredible, and he holds you and your congregation in his hands. Although it feels like we are losing a war, remember, the victory has already been won. You and your flock belong to Jesus, and none can harm you in any way that truly matters. My heart is so full for your sorrow, but know that God is with you in the valley of the shadow of death. Let His rod and staff comfort you. August 8, 2014 at 5:22 pm Thank you Donna. August 9, 2014 at 11:53 am Why did Muslims bring Christians into Islamic politics? America attacked Afghanistan and Iraq for America’s national interest to protect our lives from terrorists. There is nothing to do with Christianity, while protecting America’s national interest. Power of ISIS cannot be understated. Islamic State’s ultimate dream is to hoist flag of their Allah on top of White House as CNN reported. There is no scope of taking threat of ISIS lightly. ISIS is well funded with Saudi petro dollar to establish kingdom of their Allah around the world and they have no shortage of man power for suicide bombing. What did minority Christians of Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Pakistan etc. do to majority Muslim in their countries? Why would Christian of those countries be sacrificing lamb for Muslims’ barbaric terrorism? Those questions must be answered by those who are against American Air strike against ISIS. May God protect us from barbaric terrorists!

Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Lindsay Pentelow says: August 8, 2014 at 5:40 pm “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” It is sad that no Islamic scholars or political leaders of Muslim World (Sunni or Shia) criticize ISIS’ (Islamic State) atrocities against minorities forcing them to convert to Islam. It is common practice of Muslim leaders keep silent and enjoys oppression against non-Muslims for the sake of expanding Muslims world, under shadow of Jihadists movement to establish their kingdom of Allah. They blame terrorist Muslims if situation goes wrong, as it happened in 9/11 tragedy in New York.Truth about keeping silent by Muslim Scholars lies behind inspiration from the word of Muslim holy book, the Quran to establish kingdom of their Allah (caliph of Islam like the Ottoman dynasty). It is holy acts for all Muslims to participate in Jihad to establish their Allah’s kingdom by fighting and killing non-Muslims or imposing taxes as pressure for conversion. Muslims’ Prophet Muhammad established 1st Islamic state in Medina during sixth centuries. Only pressure from non-Muslims could force Muslims to be human again and keep human rights. August 8, 2014 at 7:41 pm This is truly horrific and calls for urgent action. Archbishop of Canterbury Welby and Pope Francis are to be commended for their strong statements in that regatd, as is President Obama for his strong action.Canon White says “We need two things: prayer and money.” We know to whom we must direct our prayers. To whom should we most effectively direct our money?And, in our prayers, let us remember the young Americans now in harm’s way in their humanitarian mission of preventing genocide and the new Christian martyrs of Iraq, among them, young Andrew. August 9, 2014 at 3:37 pm As far as the Muslims are concerned, because America is purportedly a ‘Christian nation,’ then any actions America takes must be what Christianity is about. They can’t really comprehend the idea of either a separation of Church and State, or the concept that we are called to submit to the governing authorities – not to dominate them. So, like it or not, Christians around the world WILL suffer as a result of ‘the name of Christ [being] blasphemed among the Gentiles because of [America].’ And in some ways, they don’t see a distinction between America and ‘Christianity,’ in part because a great many (particularly Conservative) Christians in this country don’t really see it either. There are too many people (people I love, but who I believe are wrong) who think that the best way to serve Christ is to promote the cause of American Patriotism. Let us pray that God turns our hearts to HIM. We can still BE Americans, but when we try to be religiously patriotic Americans, then we are false prophets, proclaiming a lie in the name of Christ. Little wonder that those in other lands who also worship Him suffer for our sins, for our idolatry. Featured Jobs & Calls August 8, 2014 at 9:51 pm Late this afternoon there was a rally and press conference at Federal Plaza in Chicago about the beginning of US bombing in Iraq this rally was co sponsored by several organizations including 8th Day Center for Justice and the Anti-War Committee — Chicago of which I am a member. The call issued at the press conference was that one cannot bomb one’s way to peace. The United States as a result of its invasion and occupation of Iraq has already resulted in the loss of some one million Iraqi lives. Diplomacy, not more bombs is disparately called for. Jeffrey Cox says: August 8, 2014 at 11:19 pm Is that what that was? I work in the Chase Tower and saw the march below our windows. I thought it was the annual immigration march. I have great trepidation of conflating ISIS’ war of terror against Iraq’s tiny Christian community with the ongoing Palestinian tragedy. We should strive on the side of life and freedom against terror and oppression, wherever that lies. The Palestinian civilians being decimated by Israeli weapons of mass destruction are brothers in martyrdom with the Iraqi Christians being slaughtered by ISIS guerrillas.

In many ways the blame for this state of affairs in Iraq lies firmly at the doorstep of the United States of America under the Bush/Cheney regime. But you aren’t supposed to remember that; you aren’t supposed to “connect the dots”. You are supposed to get all worked up emotionally over this ISIS group and support further bloodshed by the USA and its current bombing. The whole thing is completely and totally F.U.B.A.R. but it lies in the bloody hands of the Anglo-American power bloc. Rector Smithfield, NC August 9, 2014 at 3:10 pm No that is not true. The Qur’an teaches religious tolerance very clearly. The ideology of ISIS is a perversion of Qur’anic Islam. I make the point not to minimize the appalling nature of ISIS and what it is doing. Rather that if we persist in a position which says ‘our sect is good and the other evil’ that can only lead to perpetual war. And we need also to acknowledge that the whole catastrophe is a result of the actions of an evangelical christian US president who said God had told him to invade Iraq. All fundamentalisms are evil and we have to shun and oppose all of them if we are to find peace. Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York The Rev. Dr. Charles H.

I have just donated to it. Episcopal Relief and Development — ER-D.ORG — might be another good recipient of funds for this. And of Course UNICEF, CARE, etc. I do not think it appropriate at this time, with such a desperate humanitarian crisis and genocide going on over there for folks to comment here with political attacks against our government, past or present. We need to pray and give to help relieve the suffering and prevent further genocide. The Rev. Dr. Charles H.

Primer on Iraq, to recommend, and study! http://t.co/R4qoanBsVNcenter_img Wim Laven says: August 9, 2014 at 1:57 pm The problem is with Islam, PERIOD – its theology and ideology. Islamic brutality between Sunni and Shia has existed for 1400 years over their claims of who are the true guardians of the message of the prophet of allah. In times past the European colonial powers and thereafter the strongmen of the Middle East – who the West have systematically eliminated – were able to keep a lid on them. Now that those restraints have been removed…? Furthermore for the first time in their civilisation the Islamic world has weapons available to it which can wreak global terror. These grand follies into the Middle East by the Western powers – France and Britain created 5 new countries in the first half of the last century (the ones going up in flames as we speak) and stoked Arab nationalism in their goal to see the downfall of the Ottoman Empire – started a hundred years ago and continued at the beginning of this century, although well intentioned have come back to haunt us. It is said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Well the Middle East today truly has become the blood-soaked, corpse ridden road paved all the way to hell. I repeat: the problem is Islamic theology and ideology (the Egyptians tried Islamic Democracy for a year and preferred to go back to a military government.) But in this ecumenical and interfaith world this is the deceit which dare not speak its name. Vicki Gray says: New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books August 10, 2014 at 5:40 am Koranic scholars know and correctly conclude That what is happening in the Middle East is simply the copying and implementing the example of Mohamed, the Koran and hadiths.

Think of the hundred of thousands of Christian soldiers who gave their lives in World War II to fight the scourge of Fascism to save our freedoms. Islamic Fundamentalists are just as evil. They do not support our values and do not accept Christians have a right to live, let alone practice our faith in peace. The sooner the Church realizes it is under attack worldwide from Islamists, the Church will support the defense of the Church through military means. Do we want this…no, of course not…but it WILL be forced on us! Israelis understand this all too well. August 10, 2014 at 6:42 am “Diplomacy, not more bombs is disparately called for”Yea, sure.

August 11, 2014 at 4:52 pm You are incorrect, John Fisher. I taught at Nawroz University in the city of Duhok, Kurdistan, Iraq for three years (2010-2013). Kurds detest terrorists and terrorism. This is not because of pragmatism. It is because they _are_ moderate Muslims. My Muslim students would wish me Merry Christmas and Happy Easter. They had no obligation to; they just wanted to. (I likewise wished them Happy Eid twice a year.) Kurdish and Christian students were often best friends. There was even a Muslim-Yezidi couple (boyfriend and girlfriend). Many Arabs have taken refuge in Kurdistan because, unlike ISIS, the Kurds will not chop their heads off over a religious difference. My Muslim friends in Iraq, both Kurd and Arab, have denounced ISIS as not even being Muslims. I suggest you inform yourself better before making sweeping statements. Middle East Comments are closed.

Nuran says: August 11, 2014 at 2:25 am The ignorance in this comments section is appalling. Islam absolutely does not endorse or approve of these acts. “The most explicit condemnation came from Iyad Ameen Madani, the Secretary General for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the group representing 57 countries, and 1.4 billion Muslims.In a statement, he officially denounced the “forced deportation under the threat of execution” of Christians, calling it a “crime that cannot be tolerated.” The Secretary General also distanced Islam from the actions of the militant group known as ISIS, saying they “have nothing to do with Islam and its principles that call for justice, kindness, fairness, freedom of faith and coexistence.”’ http://en.radiovaticana.va/…/worlds_muslim…/1103410 Julian Malakar says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel August 9, 2014 at 2:44 am Your comments are so very true. Having personally served in Bagdad and met and prayed with Canon Andrew and have seen some of the effects of the Muslim believes on the Christian there. While there I spoke with many Arabs and came to call many of them friends. However, the Muslims I worked with I respected and tried to full understand their thoughts and believes, but for them to truly follow the Quran and live by Muslim ( sharia law) most could not, did not and did not want to. In Southwest Asia you are born into a religion and you do not leave the Muslim religion. I did met a few Muslims that were Christians and their Muslim families did not know because if they did it would mean their life. I pray all the time for what Canon Andrew is doing in Iraq and for the Christians there and around the world are prosecuted for their believers. I met some of the Children from St. George’s when they visited the US Embassy and it is so sad that they are in a place where there are hated and killed because they are Christians. May G-d be with all of them. As I write this Canon Andrew’s favorite song comes to me. “Jesus Loves Me”. He always says that everything will be alright because we have Jesus and he loves us. God Bless you Canon Andrew White and always be with you and the Christian Children of Iraq. Donna Hicks says: Fred Lindstrom says: August 9, 2014 at 3:53 am Breck, you appear to have your information from a bad source, Bush/Cheney always said the was WMD’s in Iraq. everyone laughed when none were found. Bush was a laughing stock. BUT ISIS has recently over run the military base were the WMD’s were stored being deemed to dangerous to destroy. Stored in two Giant Concrete bunkers. ISIS broke into these bunkers and have reportedly already used chemical weapons on a village in northern Iraq. so it appears Bush was correct then when the descion was made that the WMD’s would not be announced to the world he wore the ridicule. Obama on the other hand knew of the WMD’s and still pulled the troops out that were protecting the bunkers. relying on CCTV and loud speakers to warn away anyone who got near. Obama has been supplying ISIS with weapons through the free syrian army. ISIS use american bushmaster rifles not AK47’s. so to lay this at the feet of Bush/Cheney is a little bit of a mistruth. August 9, 2014 at 3:45 pm The ISIS do not respond to diplomacy. You are naive if you think diplomacy is the answer to this. These people are not humane and diplomacy will not work. Rector Martinsville, VA August 10, 2014 at 2:01 pm Breck, you seriously need to examine your sense of justice and reason. Are you REALLY comparing political moves and “breaking into people’s homes” to public glorification of mutilating children? There is something a lot more serious than politics going on here and I would appreciate it if you would have respect for life. August 8, 2014 at 9:13 pm To Will Russiello, Hear hear!

Bevin Fortuin knocked out from a big swinging arm

first_imgSaturday Sep 1, 2007 Bevin Fortuin knocked out from a big swinging arm Valke and Springbok Sevens player Schalk van Der Merwe knocks out Freestate Cheetahs Fullback Bevin Fortuin with a serious clothesline in last nights Currie Cup match in Bloemfontein.Van der Merwe catches his opponent on the chin, immediately knocking him unconscious.The ref somehow missed this incident though and the guilty party got away with it, although he will be cited no doubt. Makes you wonder if the TMO or at least the big screen in the stadium should be allowed to be brought into the game for incidents like this?The game heated up after this, as the Cheetahs were looking for a bit of revenge. Though it became a tad too aggressive at times, the match was an enjoyable one with glimpses of some brilliant running rugby; not just brutal defense.

Colombian GM workers sew their lips shut

first_imgOn the 77th anniversary of the Flint, Mich., sit-down strike in the U.S., fired GM workers in Colombia accelerate their struggle.Jorge Parra outside the Detroit auto show, Jan. 14, 2013.WW photo: David SoleAfter 930-plus days of occupation outside the U.S. Embassy in Bogota, Colombia, injured workers fired by General Motors are stepping up their fight for basic justice.Day 925 came on Feb. 11, the 77th anniversary of the United Auto Workers’ victory in the Flint sit-down strike. The Colombian workers chose that day to restart the hunger strike which has continued on and off since Aug. 1, 2012. Two members of the Association of Injured Workers and Ex-Workers of GM Colmotores (Asotrecol) — Carlos Trujillo and the group’s president, Jorge Parra — dramatically demonstrated their commitment to the strike by sewing their lips shut.Since the beginning of the occupation, the workers have demanded that GM fulfill its legal obligation to place them in jobs they can perform despite their injuries. If they cannot work, GM is obligated to provide them with lifetime income. GM has gotten around the law, the workers say, by forging medical records to make the injuries appear not work-related.Colombia is the most dangerous country in the world for union activists. Nevertheless, Asotrecol has accomplished much through this struggle. Parra explained in a letter to UAW President Bob King:Still waiting for justice“We were able to force an end to the illegal collaboration between the GM Medical Department and the private healthcare service (EPS) operating inside the plant. … GM has invested millions of dollars in ergonomic improvements on the production line, we have forced them to stop the dismissal of injured workers, and there has been a nearly 200 percent increase in the number of injured workers who have been relocated to jobs more appropriate for their physical state. … Our compañeros still working inside the plant have helped their fellow workers realize the importance of going to the doctor to get treatment without fearing reprisals from GM, so that they avoid exacerbating their injuries.“With great courage they have also started a new union, SintraGMCol. The existing union, Sintraime, has been supported and strengthened by Asotrecol standing up to GM, after having nearly been decimated in prior years by devastating laws quite similar to the ones that are expanding in the United States” — so-called “right to work” (for less) laws.Eight fired workers, who have kept the fight going under the rigors and dangers of a 30-month occupation, still wait for justice. GM refuses to negotiate a resolution of their issues. They struggle to feed their families. Two of those who have not lost their homes are facing foreclosure. Fundraising efforts, with thousands donated by rank-and-file auto workers, have kept the occupation going. Unfortunately, UAW President King has distanced himself from Asotrecol, hence Parra’s appeal.New forces are rallying to Asotrecol’s side. After the hunger strike began, the Colombian United Confederation of Workers donated food for Asotrecol families. Justice for Colombia, which “has the support of the more than 7 million workers in the British and Irish trade union movements as well as over 80 MPs in the UK Parliament,” stated that it “expresses its solidarity with Asotrecol.”To assist Asotrecol or watch an hour-long documentary about their struggle, visit Asotrecol.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Tell Greyhound: ICE off our buses!

first_imgThe call to action below can be shared and signed at bit.ly/ICEoffBuses. Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere is a multinational, multigenerational and multigendered organization based in the U.S., seeking to bring together all sectors of society to concentrate on abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, immediately putting an end to all deportations and closing all migrant detention centers. The International Workers’ Solidarity Network is building an international network of working-class organizations and activists who understand that every struggle is a workers’ struggle and recognize the urgency of developing global working-class solidarity. ICE off our buses! Build solidarity and worker power to end Greyhound collaboration with ICE!Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere (FIRE) and the International Workers’ Solidarity Network (IWSN) call for the immediate end of Greyhound’s collaboration with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).Every day across the U.S., ICE, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents freely board buses with Greyhound’s permission and attempt to identify and detain migrants.Greyhound is not required to allow immigration agents onto its buses, but rather does so voluntarily, conceding to the racist climate created by Trump to demonize migrant workers and divide working-class people. It is imperative that all workers unite in solidarity to challenge this egregious collaboration with white supremacy by Greyhound.The union that represents Greyhound drivers, mechanics and terminal workers—​Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1700—​has courageously spoken out to condemn the company’s complicity in the racist war against migrants being carried out by the Trump administration. In a statement, President Karen Miller said: “I’ve seen this happen before. I used to drive a Memphis-Dallas Greyhound bus, and law enforcement would sometimes stop my bus, search it with dogs and ask for IDs, mostly from people of color. I hated it then, but now it is happening more often, and the consequences are devastating for our passengers and their families.“At a time when our government has implemented inhumane and cruel immigration policies—​such as separating children from their parents, holding families in indefinite detention and deporting people who have been in the country for decades—​we cannot allow this to happen.”In recent months, Trump and his allies have dramatically escalated the brutal and long-standing U.S. war on migrant workers, carrying out clandestine raids in communities across the country, separating children from their families and establishing a network of concentration camps along the border—​an extension of the system of mass incarceration that imprisons upwards of 2 million workers in the United States, many of whom are Black and people of color. At the same time, a number of U.S. corporations are getting rich off their collaboration and participation in the attacks against migrant workers.In an effort to divide workers from uniting to fight our true enemies, the small group of Wall Street bankers and the owners of big business, Trump has emboldened the most reactionary elements of society to come forward and act as foot soldiers in this war. White supremacists have recently carried out nothing short of terrorist massacres targeting Black and Latinx workers in Gilroy, Calif.; El Paso, Texas; and elsewhere. Trump, with his hate-filled rhetoric, is responsible for the horrific mass shootings in California, Texas and Ohio.The Democratic Party is complicit in this war on migrants, themselves building and operating the massive machinery to carry out mass deportations and raids, and currently offering little to no challenge to the white supremacist forces being mobilized by Trump, or to Trump himself.We urge the labor movement to follow the example set by ATU 1700 and other unions which have spoken out and mobilized their memberships in solidarity with migrant workers, reviving in struggle the slogan: “An injury to one is an injury to all!” Nothing short of a mass mobilization or a general strike of workers is needed to fight against the atrocities being carried out against migrant workers in this period.We call on all working-class forces to join this campaign to end Greyhound’s collaboration with ICE and to take any and all opportunity to mobilize in solidarity with migrant workers.Actions you can take:Sign your name in support: bit.ly/ICEoffBuses.Call Greyhound (214-849-8966) and tell them: ICE,  DHS and CBP off our buses! Buses are for transportation, not deportation!Organize or join an action near you.

Laurel Hill Coláiste flies the flag for Irish language in Limerick

first_imgWatch: Limerick hurlers visit Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ on tour with Liam McCarthy cup by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK’S Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ have been recognised for flying the flag for the Irish language.The South Circular Road school added another national recognition to its awards list after Minister of State Joe McHugh presented the school with its Gaelbhratach – an acknowledgement of its efforts to promote Irish outside the classroom.After recently being rated in this year’s Sunday Times League Tables as Ireland’s number one school, Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ has now become the first in Limerick to be awarded the Gaelbhratach flag. The initiative supported by Gael-Linn, Conradh na Gaeilge and Foras na Gaeilge promotes the use of conversational Irish in secondary and primary schools.Principal Aedín Ní Bhriain said that Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ is always looking at ways to promote the language.“Gaelbhratach is a new and exciting venture for us and we are always looking to do new things,” she enthused.“We take pride in giving our students a sense of who they are and a sense of pride in their language, faith and culture. We are very proud of each and every student.”Speaking as he presented the Gaelbhratach flag to the school, Minister Joe McHugh said that a wide range of fun activities were organised through the medium of Irish including  inter-schools quiz, music, song, dance, sports drama and culture days.
