‘Pastor Sadie’ espera con bastante paciencia por la igualdad racial

first_img Submit an Event Listing The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Episcopal News Service] Ésta es la última de una serie de entrevistas que ENS ha estado publicando durante el Mes de la Historia de los Negros con episcopales que participaron en el movimiento de los derechos civiles y en la obra de reconciliación de la Iglesia.La Rda. Sadie Mitchell, residente durante toda su vida en Filadelfia, dice que ella nunca experimentó la ostensible discriminación de que fueron víctimas los afroamericanos en el Sur, ni el movimiento de los derechos civiles trajo a su ciudad los disturbios que sí tuvieron lugar en lugares como Selma, Alabama.Pero, a los 91 años, ella reconoce alguna impaciencia ocasional con el ritmo de la plena desegregación en la Iglesia y en el resto de la sociedad estadounidense.“¿Quién no se impacientaría cuando uno quiere algo y no acaba de producirse?”, pregunta.Viviendo en Filadelfia, cuenta ella, “yo no estaba restringida en ningún lugar adonde iba” Si en algún lugar discriminaban a los afroamericanos, “mi madre siempre nos protegió”.“Había un cine en el oeste de Filadelfia que sentaba a los niños negros en la galería”, recuerda ella, pero su madre no la dejaba ir ese sitio.La mayoría de los restaurantes servían a personas de todas las razas, contó ella. “Yo diría que en una ciudad tan grande como Filadelfia puede que hubiera tres o cuatros restaurantes que no dejaban entrar negros, y esos estaban sobre todo en la calle Broad, en el centro de la ciudad. Eso se acabo bastante rápido cuando comenzó el movimiento de los derechos civiles y no hizo ninguna mella en mi vida”.Pero eso no significa que no hubiera inequidades. “La discriminación y la segregación no era tan flagrante en el Norte… pero se mantuvieron. Por ejemplo, teníamos escuelas blancas y escuelas negras. Nadie jamás habla de eso, pero las teníamos. Había ciertas escuelas en ciertas zonas que eran consideradas todas de negros. No había niños blancos que asistieran a esas escuelas en absoluto”.Las escuelas en el nordeste de Filadelfia eran todas de blancos, a menos que familias negras con niños se mudaran al barrio, agregó.Luego de que comenzara el movimiento de los derechos civiles “después de todo eso estaba pasando en el Sur, el tenor pareció cambiar y uno adquirió una idea distinta de los blancos —de algunos blancos, no de todos los blancos— y a los niños [negros]se les permitió ir a esas escuelas, pero no por montones, no en gran número, hasta que a las escuelas se les demandó [legalmente]  para que se desegregaran y se les exigió que usaran autobuses para [hacer efectiva] la desegregación”, apuntó. “Cuando empezamos a hacer eso, tenías a niños blancos que venían a escuelas negras en ciertas zonas, y a niños negros que iban en autobús a ciertas escuelas blancas en el nordeste, y luego poco a poco, con profesores y estudiantes, empezabas a tener alguna desegregación”.De 1969 a los años ochenta, Mitchell fue directora, consecutivamente, de tres escuelas sólo de negros, la primera de las cuales estaba situada en un barrio blanco. Si bien mucha gente decía que existían inequidades docentes entre las escuelas negras y blancas de Filadelfia, las diferencias “no eran tan extremas” como en el Sur.“No hubo inequidades en mis tres escuelas”, subraya. Yo sabía cuánto dinero conseguía, y sabía cómo encargar los libros y otros materiales, de manera que nunca permití que careciéramos de materiales”.Las directivas docentes venían del estado, “así que todos teníamos que enseñar lo mismo. Ahora bien, lo que sí enseñábamos en las escuelas negras, que algunas de las escuelas blancas rehusaban enseñar… era la historia de los negros”.Mitchell participó en una marcha por los derechos civiles, parte de un empeño exitoso de derribar el muro que restringía la admisión al Girard College. Lo llamaban un colegio universitario, pero era una escuela sólo para varones blancos”, explicó.La manifestación fue “muy tranquila”, contó ella. “Salvo por las conversaciones de la gente, no se oía ni un sonido. No hubo violencia. Simplemente desfilamos con nuestras pancartas.“Esa fue la única marcha en que participé. Yo no bajé al Sur para las manifestaciones de allá”. Pero el Rdo. Jesse Anderson Sr., rector de la iglesia episcopal africana de Santo Tomás [St. Thomas], a la que ella asistía, sí desfiló en el Sur y también invitó al Rdo. ‘Martin Luther King Jr. a hablar en la iglesia. El Rdo. Absalom Jones, primer negro ordenado en la Iglesia Episcopal, fundó Santo Tomás en 1792.Mitchell apoyaba el movimiento y la filosofía no violenta  de King. “El movimiento que necesitaba ser empujado y empujado y empujado, porque era el momento de que se creara algún movimiento Yo estaba completamente a favor, sin duda, pero no a favor de la violencia”.La noche en que asesinaron a King en 1968, Mitchell asistía a una reunión en una escuela como auxiliar del superintendente del distrito. “El programa se suspendió. . Nos dejaron salir temprano… porque godo el mundo estaba sublevado por esa muerte,  y sencillamente no podían creerlo. Estos eran blancos y negros, principalmente blancos”.Aunque ella trabajaba en educación, Mitchell se había interesado en el ministerio y sintió “el llamado” luego de la ordenación “irregular” al presbiterado de 11 mujeres en Filadelfia en 1974. La Convención General aprobó subsecuentemente la ordenación de mujeres en 1976. A ella la ordenaron diácono en 1987 y presbítera en 1988, convirtiéndose en [rectora] auxiliar de Santo Tomás un año después. Aunque se jubiló de ese cargo, “Pastor Sadie” sigue sirviendo en la parroquia.“Los sacerdotes no se jubilan”, dice ella. “Una sencillamente se aparece allí cuando puede”.Cuando todavía era parte del laicado, sirvió en la Comisión de Restitución de la diócesis, que se creó en respuesta a la “demanda —del líder de los derechos civiles James Foreman— de que las ‘iglesias blancas’ ofrecieran reparaciones a la comunidad negra”, dijo Arthur Sudler, director de la Sociedad Histórica de Santo Tomás. “En gran medida la Comisión de Restitución reflejaba el controversial Programa Especial de la Convención General de la denominación iniciado por el obispo primado John E. Hines” para combatir la pobreza y la injusticia en las zonas urbanas.“Los miembros negros de la CR no se podían de acuerdo respecto a la manera en que la organización debía funcionar —especialmente en lo tocante a la liberación de fondos a las organizaciones comunitarias”, dijo Sudler.Finalmente, Mitchell y Anderson, que también era uno de los miembros, abandonaron la comisión. “No creí que tuviéramos suficiente conocimiento de lo que hacíamos”, explicó. “Parecía que avanzábamos a tropezones… No se iba a ninguna parte”.En la actualidad, dice ella, “las iglesias siguen estando segregadas, pero la segregación se ha atenuado, porque ya no hay blancos que teman entrar en iglesias de negros, ni negros que teman entrar en iglesias de blancos… Tenemos unos cuantos blancos que se han incorporado a Santo Tomás, que se tiene por  una iglesia solo de negros”.Pero ella percibe la falta de liderazgo de algunos clérigos en combatir la segregación más allá de participar en las manifestaciones por los derechos civiles. Hay clérigos blancos que “no hablan claro [en contra de la discriminación] en sus iglesias”, señala ella. “Ahora bien, no es todo el mundo, pero lo suficientes para constituir un problema. Ellos no hablaban claro antes, y no hablan claro ahora. Luego, tienes bolsones de segregación, donde, si el sacerdote abriera la boca y hablara con su congregación, podría provocar alguna reacción… Todavía hay claros bolsones blancos por todas partes en todas las diócesis a través del país”.“Tiene que hacerse mucho más para el reconocimiento de la plena igualdad”, afirma. “Pero se avanza y, como todo progreso, es lento”.En la sociedad en general, ella dijo que quedó felizmente sorprendida cuando Barack Obama fue electo presidente, “pero creo que lo que está ocurriendo ahora es una desgracia”, refiriéndose a los ataques verbales contra él que ella cree que tienen un motivación racial. Sencillamente condeno todo eso, y desearía que se acabara”.Pero ella se mantiene optimista respecto al futuro de las relaciones raciales.“Sí, me siento optimista, aunque tome mucho tiempo. Me siento optimista de que esta situación se va corrigiendo, y sí creo que Dios obra en su tiempo, tomándose el tiempo para ver que todo esto culmine en un punto donde confluyan Su vida y Su paz”, afirma ella. “La paz de Dios y el amor de Dios, creo yo, prevalecerán. Pero creo que Dios se está tomando su tiempo para hacer eso”.“Nunca llegaré a ver la completa desegregación”, predice ella “pero espero ver más de eso dentro de los pocos años que me quedan. Y eso está ocurriendo todos los días. Ocurre a diario en algún lugar o en algunos lugares”.—Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Classic Encounter – All Blacks vs Springboks 2004

first_imgThursday Jul 23, 2009 Classic Encounter – All Blacks vs Springboks 2004 After a dismal 2003, 2004 was a far better year for the Springboks as they went on to win the Tri Nations for the first time since 1998. Winning abroad was still an issue for them though, as this classic match was snatched at the death by the supreme finisher, Doug Howlett.South Africa scored three tries through Jean De Villiers, Jacques Cronje, and Fourie Du Preez, as well as three penalties by Percy Montgomery. The first, from De Villiers, came within 23 seconds as they got the perfect start to the match.The All Blacks stayed in touch throughout through five penalties from the boot of young Dan Carter, who had begun his rise to rugby stardom.In the 79th minute, with the Boks in the lead at 21-18, the All Blacks got downfield and worked the ball wide to Howlett, who dived over in the dying seconds to break Springbok hearts.The final score was 23-21 to the home side.

Bheem Rai, of the weekly Aujarr, JB Ghale Magar, deputy chairman of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ) in the eastern district of Thankuta, and the correspondent of the daily Udghosh, Teekaram Ghimire, were freed on 9 February. Sudarshan Aacharya, of the weekly White Paper, and Bhaktadhwaj Bohara, an FNJ leader, were released on 14 February.However, Shyam Shrestha, editor of the opposition monthly Mulyankan, is still being held at the second battalion police barracks in Maharajgunj, in temporary custody for three months under the security laws. Tej Narayan Sapkota, of the weekly Yojana, has been detained since November 2003 and he is being prosecuted.More journalists were arrested in Nepal last year than in any other country in the world.————————————————————16.02.2006Seven journalists still being held in prisonAs scores of political activists and journalists have just been released across the kingdom, Reporters Without Borders has urged the Nepalese government to free seven journalists who are still being held.At least 114 journalists were arrested while doing their jobs or taking part in pro-democracy demonstrations from 20 January 2006. Nepal, has since 2004, arrested more journalists than any other country worldwide.”For the past few years, the Nepalese government has had the distressing tendency to jail journalists in massive numbers. To the knowledge of Reporters Without Borders, the authorities have never succeeded in proving their guilt. The seven journalists should be freed immediately.”Whether they were arrested for their articles or for demonstrating for press freedom, their detention is abusive,” said the press freedom organisation.Bheem Rai, of the weekly Aujaar, was arrested on 7 February in Dharan, eastern Nepal. During his arrest, his colleague, Gopal Dewan was beaten by security forces. On the same day, JB Ghale Magar, local deputy chairman of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ), and Teekaram Ghimire, of the daily Udghosh, were arrested in Dhankuta district in the east.Sudarshan Aacharya, of the weekly White Paper, and Bhaktadhwaj Bohara, an FNJ leader, were arrested by Kathmandu police on 24 January. Shyam Shrestha, of the opposition monthly Mulyankan, has been detained in the capital since 19 January. Finally, Tej Narayan Sapkota, of the weekly Yojana, has been imprisoned since November 2003.Elsewhere, Reporters Without Borders has recorded new cases of the security forces carrying out assaults on journalists. On 13 February, Rabindra Shahi, journalist on the Dristi Weekly, and an activist colleague with the human rights organisation INSEC, were beaten up by members of the military in Manma, Kalikot district in western Nepal.

Unprecedented censorship measures to be applied to online video and audio files

first_img Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes to go further Reporters Without Borders condemns new regulations jointly issued by the Ministry of Information Industry (MII) and the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) under which only websites that are licenced by both the MII and SARFT will be able to post videos and audio files online from 31 January.

Preventing people from sharing video and audio files denies them the ability to show and describe their lives. Any censorship could now be portrayed as a legal measure.”According to the new regulations, videos and audio files “attacking national sovereignty” will not tolerated. Content that refers to ethnicity, pornography, gambling or terrorism, incites violence, violates privacy or attacks Chinese traditions and culture is also deemed unacceptable.“Those who provide Internet audio and video services must serve socialist ideals and the Chinese people,” the government said in a statement issued yesterday.“In a flagrant display of hypocrisy, the state information bureau ordered the Shanghai-based Oriental Morning Post to withdraw an editorial published yesterday describing the measures as a way of introducing the requirement for an administrative licence,” Reporters Without Borders said. “These new rules mean that from now on only socialist video content will be allowed to circulate online.”Under the new rules, anyone operating a website that provides video content or allows users to upload or download videos will have to obtain a licence that must be renewed every three years.A spokesperson for Google (which owns the video-sharing site YouTube) said the new regulation could pose a problem as YouTube was aimed at a very broad public and was designed to allow Internet users all over the world to share their videos in a completely legal and safe manner.Human rights activist Hu Jia, the winner of the Reporters Without Borders – Fondation de France special China prize in 2007, used video to show the outside world his day-to-day existence under house arrest until he was detained and imprisoned on 27 December.Last August, a number of Chinese Internet companies including Yahoo!.cn et MSN.cn signed a conduct pledge with the Chinese authorities undertaking to try to get bloggers to register under their real names, to keep registration details and to delete blog content that was wrong or inappropriate.In 2007, China blocked access to more than 2,500 websites and arrested six bloggers. It continues to be the world’s biggest prison for Internet users, with a total of 51 cyber-dissidents currently detained. ChinaAsia – Pacific last_img read more

A Bench led by Justice Khanwilkar will consider the plea filed challenging Kerala High Court’s refusal to entertain plea filed seeking directions to Kerala to serve notice of termination of lease deed on State of Tamil Nadu and initiate necessary steps for construction of ‘protection wall’ to contain damage that may be caused due to any distress to the dam. The petitioner has stated that the Kerala High Court without appreciating the facts, dismissed the petitioner’s plea saying that being an interstate dispute in distribution of water and safety of dams, it would be exceeding in its jurisdiction to entertain the plea. The plea has stated that the lease deed in question was entered into between Maharaja of Travancore and Secretary of State for India in Council for ‘Periyar Project’ and was amended by successors of the original parties being States of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. According to the petitioner, the State of Kerala is landlord of the 8000 plus acres of land on which Mullaperiyar dam is situated, and in terms of the lease deed entered into with Tamil Nadu, Kerala, being the landlord has the right to terminate the lease with immediate effect if terms of lease deed are breached by the tenant. The plea has stated that in case of Mullaperiyar dam, Tamil Nadu failed to carry out construction of evacuation tunnel at low level to make possible evacuation of water in event of distress to the dam, as prescribed mandatory in “Guidelines for preparing Operation and Maintenance Manual for Dams”. Such failure on part of Tamil Nadu was therefore a breach of terms of the lease deed. The plea further stated that such breach is also violative of Supreme Court’s judgement in case of State of Tamil Nadu vs State of Kerala in 2014, where it was directed that certain maintenance and repair work had to be carried out on the dam in time bound manner to keep it safe. The Court had formed a Supervisory Committee, mandating that the Committee will permit Tamil Nadu to carry out further precautionary measures that may become necessary upon its periodic inspection of the dam in accordance with guidelines of Central Water Commission and Dam Safety Organisation. According to the petitioner, the Supervisory Committee failed to carry out the specific works in time bound manner and mandatory guidelines of Central Water Commission and Dam Safety Organisation to construct a tunnel at lowest point. The Committee through its letter also confirmed that they haven’t carried out mandatory works leading to conclusion that, by failing to construct the tunnel Tamil Nadu has breached terms of lease deed resulting in threat to life and property of people. The petitioner has contended that State of Kerala failed to initiate any action to protect life, property, environment of its people by initiating construction of protection wall to stop water flow from oldest dam in event of a dam break. According to the petitioner, major lapses on part of both states in adhering to covenants of lease and complying with Supreme Court’s directions, has resulted in threat to life of almost 35 lakhs people on one side from Kerala. It has also resulted in threat to water requirements pf these people from 5 districts from other side Tamil Nadu, which requires effective monitoring, supervision, and preventive steps to ensure safety, security and welfare of people of both States. The present petition has been filed by Advocate Shweta Garg, drafted by Advocates Sonu Augustine and DK Tiwari and settled by Advocate Wills Mathews.Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

With the cold air, the first snow of the season could occur in Denver, Colorado with some possible accumulation. Late Thursday, the rain will change to snow in the Dakotas with heavy snow expected there. This could be some of the biggest snow this early in the season that the Dakotas have ever seen in recorded history.Snow accumulations could be more than a foot from the Rockies all the way to the Dakotas through this weekend. As the cold front moves into the Rockies, it will bring very windy conditions to the area Tuesday and Wednesday, increasing fire danger.

Identity crisis keeps DTI at the crossroads

first_img Previous Article Next Article What do you think of the Department of Trade and Industry? It would beuseful to hear about HR’s experiences of the department whose mission is towork with business, staff and consumers to drive up productivity andcompetitiveness. It is all too easy to take a pop at faceless government departments and theDTI has had its critics – from the small business community, to the Instituteof Directors and the unions. And in the past, the HR profession has also beenvociferous with complaints that it is slow to deliver, and that over-regulationcreates too much bureaucracy and stifles development. In this issue, we question what the DTI is achieving, and take a consideredview of its role in a bid to further the debate. We conclude that the DTI ishaving a bit of an identity crisis, and is far from convincing as a driver ofchange or even as a support mechanism for business. Some may consider this a harsh assessment for a department that’s had asuccession of good leaders and some brilliant civil servants within itspowerbase. But the problem lies in the lack of clarity of its role andfrustration over the way it communicates. As Professor Michael Porter recentlysaid, the future is about a collaborative effort between business and theGovernment, not one side calling the shots. HR is on the DTI’s radar screen at last, and is viewed as a vital partner.There are definite signals that Patricia Hewitt’s department recognises thevalue of people management to growing the economy. Several new initiatives –from Porter’s productivity study, to the Higgs report on non-executivedirectors – suggest her team has grasped that HR is critical to thecompetitiveness challenge. The most resounding endorsement of HR so far is probably the latest DTIannouncement of a taskforce to provide solid performance benchmarks andguidance on how organisations can meaningfully account for their human capitalassets. It is disappointing that only one HR professional – Patti Bellingerfrom BP – has been invited to join this working party, but let’s not bechurlish. The DTI is clearly at a crossroads in its relationship with HR, and we watchits progress with interest.

Qinetiq picks Saab’s TactiCall for Naval Research Facility

first_img Share this article View post tag: QinetiQ October 18, 2018 Qinetiq picks Saab’s TactiCall for UK Naval Research Facility UK defense technology company Qinetiq has ordered Saab’s integrated communication system, TactiCall, for use at their Shore-based Information Facility (SIF), a testing facility in Portsdown, near Portsmouth in the UK.QinetiQ’s SIF is used to carry out the testing and evaluation of communications equipment for the Royal Navy.TactiCall will help the SIF control the different external communication setups used for testing purposes, regardless of their individual radioband, frequency and hardware, by seamlessly interconnecting them. It can also simulate these naval domain communication setups used on different ship classes.As explained by Saab, the system also allows for switching between different communication setups much more smoothly as part of the SIF’s own testing capability, thereby increasing effectivity when it comes to daily operations.“We first provided TactiCall to the SIF as part of Saab’s support for the Royal Navy’s ‘Information Warrior’ exercise in April 2018. It proved its value then and this decision by QinetiQ to make TactiCall part of the everyday operations demonstrates that users quickly see the benefits it brings”, said Ellen Molin, senior vice president and head of Saab’s Support and Services business.“QinetiQ have chosen TactiCall to enhance the management of our communications facilities at Portsdown Technology Park where initially it is being used for voice communications within a single domain. Already TactiCall has made a significant impact to our communications facilities, so we intend to take a deeper look at the other capabilities provided by the secure TactiGuard solution”, said Mike Loneragan, chief engineer from QinetiQ.This is the first sale of TactiCall in the UK outside the civilian domain or the Royal Fleet Auxilliary. The TactiCall installation at the SIF is a compact system consisting of four operator positions and a management server.center_img View post tag: Saab Equipment & technology Back to overview,Home naval-today Qinetiq picks Saab’s TactiCall for UK Naval Research Facility last_img read more
