New York protest: ‘Stop U.S. proxy wars!’

first_imgSome of the protesters, holding Syrian flag, June 13.WW photo: Greg ButterfieldOutside the New York studios of CNN June 13, hundreds of people had the opportunity to hear the truth about U.S. wars and interventions around the world that they don’t get from corporate media outlets. The occasion was a rally and speak-out against U.S. proxy wars around the world and President Obama’s plans to deploy 450 additional troops to Iraq.Many people stopped to listen and talk to organizers on the bright early summer day. Anti-war and community activists distributed hundreds of flyers urging people to get informed and join in building a mass movement against war and racism.“From Yemen to Donbass, it’s one war on a global scale,” said Sara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center. “But no matter how many bases, troops and military hardware it uses, the U.S. is unable to impose its domination without meeting powerful resistance.”Flounders explained how corporate media like CNN cover up the U.S. role in the Saudi bombing of Yemen, the Ukrainian shelling of the Donbass People’s Republics and the funding of rebel movements from Syria to Venezuela by censoring information and spinning military aggression to Washington and Wall Street’s liking.“The Pentagon doesn’t build bases anymore — in Iraq they now call them ‘lily pads,’ as if they were flowers,” said Flounders. “The U.S. doesn’t deploy troops but ‘trainers and advisors.’ U.S. mercenaries are called ‘private contractors.’”Johnnie Stevens, of the Peoples Power Assembly, said: “There’s a war against the people of the world and a war against the people here at home. We need money for jobs, housing, schools and hospitals. We need to fight racist police terror here, not people resisting U.S. oppression around the world.”Speakers and participants represented the Syrian American Foundation; Solidarity with Ukraine Antifascists Committee; Pakistan-USA Freedom Forum; Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST); U.S. Friends of the Soviet People; Workers World Party; and other groups.Solidarity messages were received from the Union of Political Emigrants and Political Prisoners of Ukraine; Ukraine Antifascist Committee of Bologna, Italy; and the Donbass Anti-Nazi Committee in Rome.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The State Government shall also file a report in response to the averments made in the writ petition,” the order passed by a bench of Chief Justice Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee reads. However, the bench refused to issue specific directions to send a Central Team to the state in order to inspect the ground reality. The MHA had submitted that a team from the Ministry was prepared to visit West Bengal, inspect the situation and file a report before the Court. However, after recording resistance on part of the Advocate General appearing for the State, the bench said, “We clarify that if any team from the Ministry of Home Affairs visits this State, the same shall be on its own volition and not pursuant to any order of this Court.” The Advocate General had resisted the idea of deploying a Central Team while emphasizing that earlier, “an inter-ministerial team” of the Central Government had visited the State and had spent several weeks inspecting various areas. “Sufficient materials were gathered by that team. Hence, no further visit by any Central Team is necessary. Any further visit by a Central Team would, in effect, be a roving enquiry only to find fault with the State Administration, if possible,” the West Bengal Government had argued.

The said office order has been issued to give effect to the judicial order passed by the Single Bench of Justice JR Midha onSeptember 20, wherein it was declared that:’If the writ petitioner does not disclose the “Exceptional circumstances” in the writ petition, the Registry shall return the writ petition under objections to enable the writ petitioner to disclose the “Exceptional circumstances” in the Synopsis as well as in the opening paras of the writ petition.’ The court had further recommended in that order that subject to the approval of the Chief Justice, the Registry may incorporate the following column in the check list of writ petitions:- “Whether the writ petitioner has an alternative remedy? If so, disclose the “Exceptional circumstances” which may warrant the exercise of writ jurisdiction in the Synopsis as well as in the opening paras of the writ petition?” The court had further highlighted that the Sole Test laid down by the Supreme Court for entertaining a writ petition relating to an industrial dispute is the existence of ‘Exceptional circumstances’. If the Court is satisfied on the existence of ‘Exceptional circumstances’, then and only then, the Court shall proceed to ascertain whether the writ involves disputed questions of fact. If the Court finds ‘Exceptional circumstances’ but the writ involves disputed questions of fact, then the writ petition shall not be entertained, meaning thereby that the writ petition may be entertained only if the Court is satisfied firstly, on the existence of ‘Exceptional circumstances’ and secondly, the writ petition does not involve disputed questions of fact. In light of this order, the Registry has clarified that if the writ-petitioner does not disclose the “Exceptional circumstances” in the writ petition, the Registry will return such petition under objection.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Case of 1-year-old boy shot in head prompts $35,000 reward in Chicago

first_imgLPETTET/iStock(CHICAGO) — A $35,000 reward has been offered by several community activists after a 1-year-old boy shot in the head in Chicago, according to police.The 1-year-old boy was in a parked car with four other people when, at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, a car described by police as a dark, older model sedan pulled up next to them, according to Chicago police.

Asia’s shrinking glaciers protect large populations from drought stress

first_imgAbout 800 million people depend in part on meltwater from the thousands of glaciers in the high mountains of Asia. Water stress makes this region vulnerable to drought, but glaciers are a uniquely drought-resilient source of water. Here I show that seasonal glacier meltwater is equivalent to the basic needs of 221 ± 59 million people, or most of the annual municipal and industrial needs of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. During drought summers, meltwater dominates water inputs to the upper Indus, Aral and Chu/Issyk-Kul river basins. This reduces the risk of social instability, conflict and sudden migrations triggered by water scarcity, which is already associated with the large, rapidly growing populations and hydro-economies of these basins. Regional meltwater production is, however, unsustainably high—at 1.6 times the balance rate—and is expected to increase in future decades before ultimately declining. These results update and reinforce a previous publication in Nature on this topic, which was retracted after an inadvertent error was discovered.last_img read more

Majority of buyers benefit from progressive stamp duty

first_imgSome 71 per cent of homebuyers in England and Wales will benefit from changes to the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) announced in the Autumn Statement, according to Nationwide.Nationwide said that 86 per cent of purchases in London and the South East would profit from the Government’s decision to abolish the slab structure on Stamp Duty tax.Homebuyers in London are set to be the biggest beneficiary of the change due to the fact that home prices are generally higher and thus a higher proportion of transactions are liable for stamp duty.Overall, it is estimated that 98 per cent of buyers will pay the same or less tax under the new system in which purchasers pay the marginal tax rate on the relevant elements of the purchase price. According to 2013/14 data from the Land Registry, homebuyers in England and Wales would save an average of £1,600.In fact, according to the latest H M Revenue & Customs Tax Receipts statistics released in recent days, the Chancellor’s reform of the SDLT regime is already having an impact on tax receipts. The figures show that following the changes, SDLT receipts in January 2015 were down £299 million month-on-month, and down £126 million compared to a year earlier.Robert Pullen, Personal Tax Manager at London Chartered Accountants Blick Rothenberg LLP, commented, “In the Autumn statement on 3rd December, the Chancellor announced that from 4th December the amount of SDLT charged on a transaction was to be calculated on a progressive basis, rather than a ‘cliff-edge’ system. A person buying a house for £300,000 on 3rd December would pay SDLT of £9,000, whilst someone buying the same house at the same price on 4th December would pay SDLT of £5,000, a saving of £4,000.”However, Pullen added, “Of course not all people have been made better off by these changes, with those purchasing houses over £937,500 being worse off, so for those people, this could instead be considered the first pre-election tax increase and was definitely not a tax break.”Meanwhile, the January Transaction Data from Land Registry shows that it completed over 1,319,660 applications from its customers in January. This includes 1,278,536 applications by account customers, of which 335,489 were applications in respect of registered land (dealings); 595,723 were applications to obtain an official copy of a register or title plan; 162,298 were searches and 93,018 were transactions for value.progressive_stamp_duty sdlt stamp_duty_land_tax February 24, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Australia’s future ASRV to feature Canadian BWS

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Australia’s Antarctic research vessel to feature Canadian BWS Authorities Share this article September 8, 2017 Australia’s future Antarctic Supply and Research Vessel (ASRV) will be fitted with a custom designed ballast water management system (BWMS), the shipbuilder in charge of the project has announced.Damen Green Solutions has designed a solution that uses the Trojan Marinex BWT 250 to meet the exacting requirements of Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS).The ASRV’s ballast water management system had to provide specific operational capabilities including the ability to operate effectively in very cold waters, to use no chemicals, to generate no by-products and to be as compact as possible given that space is at a premium on this complex vessel.Following an assessment of all the available options, Damen Green Solutions recommended the Trojan Marinex BWT 250, manufactured by Trojan Technologies of Ontario, Canada.“At Damen Green Solutions, we partnered with Trojan Marinex to design a ‘plug-and-play’ installation for DSNS,” says Stefhan van Esch Design & Proposal engineer at Damen. “Together we created a bespoke design that mounts the entire BWMS on a 3m by 1m skid that can be easily and quickly fitted into the available footprint in the engine room. Prior to leaving the manufacturing works it will undergo a factory acceptance test, leaving DSNS with the simple matter of connecting up the power and the main pipes once it is aboard the ASRV. The Trojan Marinex BWT 250 will then be ready to disinfect and treat up to 250m³ of seawater an hour.”Construction of the 160-metre ASRV began in May at Damen Shipyards Galati. The BWMS will be delivered to the yard in August for installation later in 2017. The vessel is expected to be operational in 2020.
