Labour would need to raise £13.5bn by raising NICs – the same amount that George Osborne’s VAT hike will earn the Treasury annually by 2014-15. It has ruled out any increases in personal taxation, meaning employer NICs would have to rise by three per cent. Johnson also said the Labour party would have imposed a bonus tax on British banks. “People will scratch their heads and think ‘Why are we taking less from the banks who are actually at the heart of the global financial crisis?’” he said. But Justine Greening, the Conservative Treasury minister, said Labour’s “tax on jobs” was not a credible alternative to higher VAT.She said: “All Labour can do is jump on every passing bandwagon.?The shadow chancellor has no idea how to clean up this economic mess.” Tags: NULL whatsapp KCS-content last_img read more

first_img Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Martinsville, VA Anglican women reaffirm ‘unequivocal commitment’ to stay in communion with each other [Anglican Communion News Service] Statement from the Anglican Communion delegation at the 60th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, 2016:22 March 2016We as the Anglican Communion delegation at the 60th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW60), March 2016, have experienced a deep sisterhood in our time together. Our sisterhood is built on mutual respect and love, and the relationships in Christ we have with each other.We have held each other in a deep embrace and found that our convictions lead us to reaffirm the ‘Walking Together‘ Statement made by our sisters in the Anglican Communion delegation at UNCSW 51 in 2007.We do so mindful of the upcoming meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-16) in Lusaka, Zambia, and offer our continuing prayers for this meeting of our Church leaders.The ‘Walking Together‘ StatementFrom the Anglican Women gathered at the 51st Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, 3 March 2007In the name of God, Saviour, Redeemer, and Giver of Life.We, the women of the Anglican Communion gathered in New York as the Anglican Consultative Council delegation to the 51st Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, and as members of the International Anglican Women’s Network representing the diversity of women from across the world-wide Anglican Communion, wish to reiterate our previously stated unequivocal commitment to remaining always in “communion” with and for one another.We remain resolute in our solidarity with one another and in our commitment, above all else, to pursue and fulfill God’s mission in all we say and do.Given the global tensions so evident in our church today, we do not accept that there is any one issue of difference or contention which can, or indeed would, ever cause us to break the unity as represented by our common baptism. Neither would we ever consider severing the deep and abiding bonds of affection which characterize our relationships as Anglican women.We have been challenged in our time together by the desperately urgent issues of life and death faced by countless numbers of women and children in our communities. As a diverse delegation, we prayerfully reflected on these needs.We thus reaffirm the conclusion of the statement presented by our delegation to this year’s Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women:This sisterhood of suffering is at the heart of our theology and our commitment to transforming the whole world through peace with justice. Rebuilding and reconciling the world is central to our faith.Amen.

first_img‘Union busting is disgusting’Rally outside disciplinary hearing at Veolia Corp’s HQ in Boston, Oct. 28.WW photo: Joseph PietteBoston, Oct. 28 — It was a true indication of what workers’ power means. A mass outpouring of workers at an hours-long rally tonight served notice to the notorious, union-busting transnational corporation, Veolia, that rank-and-file members of Steelworkers Local 8751, the Boston School Bus Drivers Union, stand prepared to defend their leaders and union by any means necessary.Today Veolia held a second disciplinary hearing to try to illegally terminate five elected officers of Local 8751 — Grievance Chair Stevan Kirschbaum, Recording Secretary Andre ­Francois, Vice President Steve Gillis and Stewards Garry Murchison and Richard Lynch.As the speeches, chants and drumming penetrated the hearing, the Veolia bosses were forced to initiate a stay on imposing any discipline against the Five — until a third hearing, scheduled to take place on Oct. 31 at 3 p.m.No one had to be convinced that the bosses are dragging out the hearings in hopes that the union will tire of mobilizing in support of the Five.The first hearing, on Oct. 23, had ignited the bus drivers and their supporters to rally against the fabricated charges brought against their leaders.Team Solidarity — the voice of a rank-and-file coalition of school bus drivers from the Steelworkers, Teamsters and Amalgamated Transport unions — said in a public statement on Oct. 28: “Since taking over the Boston school bus management contract on July 1, 2013, Veolia has committed numerous unfair labor practices, violated nearly every term and condition of the drivers’ employment contract, and engaged in actions designed to steal literally millions of dollars from drivers’ paychecks — all with the goal of attempting to decimate this union of mainly Haitian and Cape Verdean drivers.“In the process, Veolia has sacrificed student safety on the altar of profit, among other things creating routes designed by GPS-based software that result in massive lateness to school and to home, and refusing to pay drivers for all their time worked.“On Oct. 8, when drivers engaged in a legally protected protest of Veolia’s unfair labor practices, including refusing to meet at the drivers’ repeated requests, Veolia wrongly called the police and forcibly removed the drivers, illegally locking the gates and refusing to let the drivers back in to work. Boston Mayor Menino and Veolia then targeted the five union leaders for termination. Boston School Bus Drivers Union Local 8751 exemplifies what a labor union should be.”As the five sat in the disciplinary hearing, held at Veolia’s corporate headquarters in the Freeport yard, bus drivers and their supporters started to gather in the early afternoon. They kept coming until the evening, when bus runs taking children home from school ended.A truck was transformed into a makeshift stage. When there were breaks in the hearing, the Five came out and stood together in solidarity, giving words of encouragement and brief updates on what had happened.One of the speakers early in the day was Myles Calvey, a leader of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 2222, representing Verizon workers. Calvey spoke of the long-time relationship between his union and USW Local 8751 and the need for all workers to stick together.Other speakers included out-of-town supporters Sharon Black from the Baltimore Workers Assembly and Eva Panjwani and Scott Williams, representing the youth group Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) from Durham, N.C., and Philadelphia, respectively. Black and Panjwani spoke on recent solidarity actions for the Boston drivers held at Veolia offices in their cities. Similar demonstrations took place in New York, Buffalo and Oakland. An action is scheduled for San Francisco on Oct. 30.Miya Campbell from the Women’s Fightback Network compared the bus drivers’ struggle to the heroic anti-apartheid fight led by women.Ed Childs, a member of UNITE HERE Local 26, spoke on the history of racist segregation in Boston and the struggle to organize against Veolia and reactionary political forces that want to turn back the clock to resegregate the schools.‘Solidarity is not a crime’While there was a virtual occupation of the Veolia headquarters during the first disciplinary hearing on Oct. 23, today’s rally was also an occupation but even more spirited and militant. The Five marched out of the hearings, united as one, to powerful cheers and fist pumps of hundreds of rank-and-file members and their supporters. They took the stage to make short statements, urging the membership to stay strong and united. Three women union leaders — Kiett Woody Baptiste, Chantell Casimir and Lela Roseboro — spoke in passionate defense of the Five and their union. Pat Scanlan spoke on behalf of the local chapter of Veterans for Peace.Sandra McIntosh, coordinator of the Coalition for Equal Quality Education, speaking on behalf of the parents and students, extended solidarity to the union from the Black Educators Alliance of Massachusetts. She told the crowd: “You are the most important people in my world because you carry the most important cargo in the world — our children. We give you our children and you bring them back to us each and every day. You deserve the respect, the pay and the solidarity you have coming to you. We are here from the community to support you.”Larry Holmes, from the New York People’s Power Assembly and Workers World Party, told the drivers that they were an inspiration to all workers. He also sent a message to Veolia that “You will not bust us.” He ended his talk with a chant picked up by the entire rally: “What’s disgusting? Union busting!”Stevan Kirschbaum, who co-chaired the rally, along with Team Solidarity leader and USW Local 8751 member Frantz Mendes, announced that two solidarity messages had come from Latin America — one from Edgar L. Sarango Correa, president of the Workers Confederation of Ecuador and current president of the Workers Unitary Front; the other from Edgar Páez, part of the national leadership of the National Union of Food Workers (SINALTRAINAL) of Colombia.From the stage Kirschbaum recognized a delegation of Team Solidarity bus workers from Brockton Teamsters 653, as well as the entire negotiating committee representing school bus workers employed by the Eastern Bus Company.He also brought to everyone’s attention solidarity from New York’s Amalgamated Transport Union Local 1181. In a vicious anti-union attack, Veolia has included in its “evidence” being used to “prove” the case for the termination of leaders, a video of USW 8751’s solidarity tour to support the 8,800 striking NY school bus workers last February. The act exposes the true political character of Veolia’s campaign to punish this militant union for daring to provide real solidarity in action.In a statement release by Michael Cordiello, ATU 1181 President and Business Agent, the union states: “This union-busting action by Veolia Transportation is outrageous. Solidarity is not a crime. Standing up with the members’ for their rights is not a crime. We will join ranks to ensure that Veolia’s crime will not succeed, in Boston or any of its world-wide operations. Veolia: Hands off the Boston School Bus Union 5.”Linda Jenkins from the Community Church of Boston was also greeted from the stage.As outreach continues to grow in the community and the political movement for round three of the hearings set for Oct. 31, the bus drivers are fully aware of and prepared for the ongoing struggle to defend their union and the rights of all workers.Earlier in the day, Ross Kochman, a sixth-grade teacher in the Boston Public School system, told WW: “The bus drivers have always supported the youth in BPS. I work with the youth and families of this city, and I think the bus drivers have been there for them, and I wanted to be here for the bus drivers.”Charles Yancey, an African-American Boston City Councilor, informed USW 8751 Oct. 29 that he is preparing a City Council order demanding a hearing to investigate the actions of Veolia, BPS and Mayor Menino in the illegal lockout of the school bus drivers as well as allegations included in the unfair labor practices charges now being heard before the National Labor Relations Board to determine if Veolia is in breach of their vendor contract with the city.On Oct. 8, Yancey went to Veolia’s corporate headquarters to demand that the company meet with the drivers so that they may return to pick up the students. He was rudely ordered from Veolia’s corporate office and physically escorted from the property by Boston police.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Only an independent third party is capable of establishing the facts in Zimbabwe today.”Chikomba, who also ran a stall outside his home in the working-class suburb of Glen View, was kidnapped by four men, who stopped and initially asked if they could buy some beverages. Forced at gunpoint to get into their white 4WD vehicle, he was found dead at Darwendale (60 km west of Harare) on 31 March. Since then, his body has been at the morgue in Chinhoyi, 115 km west of the capital.The Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (the leading organisation of its kind in Zimbabwe) quoted one of his relatives as saying he tried to pull Chikomba back as he was being bundled into the vehicle, but the abductors hit him with the butts of their guns. The relative said the vehicle was found at Mapinga, near Banket (80 km west of Harare).One of Chikomba’s former colleagues said Chikomba was accused of providing the international media with video footage showing opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai with his face badly swollen after being beaten while in custody. The same source said Chikomba was a supporter of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).A Harare-based journalist told Reporters Without Borders: “He was undoubtedly targeted because he was known as a cameraman.” After leaving the production team of “Vision 30,” a programme broadcast by ZBH until 2001, Chikomba continued to work as a freelance cameraman for individuals or news organisations.Footage of Tsvangirai with his battered face as he left a courthouse to go to hospital was shot by several news media including Mighty Movies Zimbabwe (Pvt) Ltd, a leading Zimbabwean production company that provided its footage to foreign TV stations and news agencies.Many opposition members, human rights activists and journalists have been arrested by the intelligence services in similar circumstances in recent weeks. Gift Phiri, a contributor to the London-based weekly The Zimbabwean, has been held since 1 April on a charge of practising journalism illegally.Luke Tamborinyoka, the former editor of the now-defunct Daily News, was hospitalised on the orders of a Harare court on 30 March after losing consciousness during his trial. He had been badly injured as a result of mistreatment while in police custody following his arrest along with 34 activists during a police raid on MDC headquarters on 28 March.

News Follow the news on Vietnam April 27, 2021 Find out more The former journalist was sentenced to seven years imprisonment on 31 December at the end of a trial lasting less than three hours. The people‚s court of Hanoi also sentenced him to three years house arrest once he reaches the end of his sentence.Reporters Without Borders is extremely shocked by the severity of this sentence. The organisation condemns the abusive use of a spying charge against the cyberdissident and the mockery of justice in Vietnamese courts._____________Vietnamese version bellow (.pdf)Reporters Without Borders calls for release of cyberdissident NguyenVu BinhReporters Without Borders called for the release of cyberdissident Nguyen Vu Binh, whose trial for “espionage” was opening before the people’s court in Hanoi on 31 December. He risks the death penalty. The international press freedom organisation called on justice minister Uong Chu Luu to intervene to secure the release of the journalist, who previously worked for a Communist Party publication.”We already wrote to the justice minister on 25 September seeking news about the prison conditions of Vu Binh, who has been held in solitary confinement since September 2002, but he did not see fit to reply,” said Robert Ménard, the organisation’s secretary general. “We again call on this minister to put an end to the injustice suffered by the cyberdissident, a former Communist party member. Vietnam should be made to understand that its Internet users have the right to express their opinions,” he added.Sources close to the Vietnamese authorities said that the main charge reportedly relates to a letter sent by Nguyen on 19 July 2002 to the Human Rights Commission of the US Congress, in which he criticised the human rights situation in his country. He is apparently also charged with being in contact with “subversive dissidents” such as Le Chi Quang and Pham Hong Son, both of whom are also behind bars. He is further accused of having received 4.5 million dongs (about 230 euros) “from a reactionary organisation based abroad”, taken part in an anti-corruption organisation and having called on the Vietnamese authorities in 2000 to set up a liberal democratic party. Vu Binh is also charged with posting messages of a “reactionary nature” on the Internet, in particular an essay headlined, “reflections on the Sino-Vietnamese borders agreements” in which he criticised the 1999 treaty between the two countries.Two lawyers will represent Vu Binh at his trial, Me Dam Van Hiêu and Me Nguyen Thang Cang, who have been given access to the charge sheet.Nguyen was formerly a journalist for the official organ of the Vietnamese Communist Party, Tap Chi Cong San (The Communist Review). He resigned from this job in 2001.
