Archbishop of Canterbury visits social justice ministry while in Hong…

first_img Submit a Press Release [Anglican Communion News Service] While in Hong Kong for the 17th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby took a break May 1 to see discipleship in action by meeting with Jackie Pullinger at the Shing Mun Springs Multi-Purpose Rehabilitation Homes.Pullinger travelled from England to Hong Kong more than 50 years ago and initially began work as a school teacher in the Kowloon Walled City. At that time in the 1960s, it was one of the world’s largest opium-producing centers and was run by criminal triad gangs. In 1967, Jackie founded a youth club to help addicts and others who had been abused find a safe place for them to meet and play. Over many years, it grew it into a major social justice ministry and is overseen by the St. Stephen’s Society.Read the full article here.

Baltimore PPA organizer’s car shot up — “We will not be intimidated, silenced or stopped!”

first_imgBaltimoreThe Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly and Southern Christian Leadership Conference Call for Friday, June 5, 2015 Press Conference at 1 P.M. at 2011 N.

Tuesday night as they returned from work at the PPA’s nearby offices.This attack is combined with a series of threatening phone calls to both the PPA’s phone line and Black’s personal phone, including a barrage of robotic attacks to both phones and disruptions to the organizations communications systems.Sharon Black, PPA organizer and Rev CD Witherspoon, SCLC President jointly stated, “We take this attack and other threats very seriously and want to send a clear message to the Baltimore Police Department, the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) and any and all forces that may wish us harm, that we will not be intimidated, silenced or stopped in our continuing fight for justice for Freddie Grey and all victims of police terror.  We want to say to all of our concerned friends and supporters:  We are stronger than ever and look forward to a vibrant and productive assembly this Saturday, where we will not only hear from the victims of police abuse but plan our next steps toward ending police terror and winning jobs and livable wages now.”Saturday’s Assembly will take place at New Unity Church, 100 W.

German elections show need to intensify anti-racist struggle

first_imgThe best news from the German national elections of Sept. 24 was that the main parties of German imperialism — the Social Democrats (SPD) and the Christian Democratic Union with its Bavarian Christian Social Union ally — had their worst results since World War II. The SPD got only 20.5 percent and the CDU/CSU 32.9 percent.These parties, which have dominated the German government since post-war West Germany was stabilized, together got barely more than half the votes.The worst news was that the ultra-right wing, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim party, the Alternative for Germany (AfD), came in third, with 12.6 percent of the votes. For the first time the AfD, founded in 2013, won seats in the Federal Parliament, or Bundestag.Political observer Victor Grossman aptly describes the AfD, which has drawn together leaders from various racist and neo-fascist parties, as divided between “far right racists and extreme right racists” in his Berlin Bulletin of Sept. 25.The AfD won 94 of the 709 seats in the Bundestag, which will give these ultra-rightists even more media coverage to spew their racist viewpoint.The AfD advance should not, however, prevent existing left forces in Germany from continuing their courageous activities, which include confronting the racists and neo-Nazis wherever they raise their heads, protesting at U.S. military bases, denouncing German participation in wars abroad and supporting workers who go on strike.The electoral results fit a general pattern in many European countries. Instability in the capitalist economy, coupled with an “austerity” program that cuts wages, benefits and jobs, creates general dissatisfaction among the population. Workers’ living standards decline, and insecurity grows, even in the more prosperous countries.Mostly NATO members, these countries’ imperialist ruling classes also take part in wars and war maneuvers, from the borders of Russia to the mountains of Afghanistan. They sow misery throughout North Africa and Western Asia, driving millions to leave these regions and head toward Europe for survival.The capitalist, pro-imperialist parties that have run these governments for decades offer no solutions for the workers. Right-wing parties arise that offer false solutions. They scapegoat refugees, immigrants and especially Muslims, blaming the victims for the evils of decadent capitalism.While none of these ultra-right or neo-fascist parties has taken control of a government in Western Europe, they still represent a threat. The National Front in France received a third of votes there, and parties analogous to the AfD exist in Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy and the Scandinavian countries. In addition, they pressure the center-right and formerly social-democratic parties to move to the right and parrot their racism.The racist and xenophobic Donald Trump electoral victory in the United States fits this pattern.Merkel still chancellorIn Germany the CDU/CSU still came in first, with 246 seats, despite finishing with such a small plurality. The SPD won 153 seats. Angela Merkel, who has been chancellor since 2005, still has the task of forming and leading the next government.Three other parties won seats. The Free Democrats (FDP), a bourgeois party that had lost all its seats in the 2013 election, came in fourth, winning 80 seats. The Left Party — the only party that has been anti-war and shown solidarity with immigrants — is fifth, with 69 seats. And the Green Party, which can no longer be considered leftist, but still takes positions defending the environment, won 63 seats.The last German government was a so-called Grand Coalition of the CDU/CSU together with the SPD. This time SPD leader Martin Schulz has announced that his party will not join such a coalition, but will instead lead the opposition. That means it will be a serious parliamentary problem for Merkel to form a new government.Merkel will have to join two diverse partners with her own parties. The most likely coalition would be between the CDU/CSU, the FDP and the Greens. As of now an alliance of any party with the racist AfD is taboo. The CDU/CSU also refuses to allow The Left Party into the government.Being part of a government coalition would, in any case, force The Left Party to surrender its up-to-now consistent anti-war and anti-NATO positions and compromise its defense of workers’ rights. Joining such a government might only discredit this party as a pole of opposition to the imperialist regime. But such discrediting has occurred where The Left Party joined local government coalitions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Government yields to protests and modifies cyber crimes law

first_img April 14, 2020 Find out more September 1, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government yields to protests and modifies cyber crimes law Organisation News June 15, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts Two Jordanian TV journalists arrested after broadcasting criticism of lockdown Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives August 12, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders hails the withdrawal of some of the most repressive provisions in the temporary law on cyber crimes in an amendment approved by the government on 29 August but continues to call for its repeal as it still grants the authorities arbitrary restrictive powers, above all because of its vague wording.The most welcome changes were to provisions concerning defamation and to provisions granting too much discretionary power to the attorney-general’s office.Adopted on 3 August, the so-called Information Systems Crimes Law imposed a legal framework on news and information websites but the penalties for violations, ranging from fines to forced labour, continue to be disproportionate (articles 8, 10 and 11).Freedom of information continues to be limited by article 12’s ban on posting information previously unavailable to the public that concerns Jordan’s national security, foreign relations, public order or the economy. This provision is liable to restrict investigative journalism and encourage self-censorship.Article 9 prohibiting immoral content – an extremely vague concept that is not defined – also remains unchanged. It is likely to threaten freedom of expression by being applied to innocuous content.Article 8 on the posting of any defamatory or insulting comment has been withdrawn. It had been widely criticised by journalists, who had feared it would lead to more defamation prosecutions. There was also a great deal of criticism of article 13, which has been amended.In its original form, article 13 gave the attorney-general unlimited power to issue the police with a warrant to search the office or home of anyone suspected of violating this law. Now the authorities will have to request a court’s permission and will have to produce some evidence that a crime is being committed.

(23 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena), announced today the development of new omni-channel payment technology designed to allow in-app barcode payments at retail point-of-sale. This technology compliments Wipit’s existing network branded GPR card, in-app services, and e-commerce payment options from a prepaid cash mobile wallet.Currently, Wipit’s mobile wallet consumers can load accounts by adding cash at retail locations, setting up direct deposit, or using Quick Check, the company’s instant remote mobile check deposit service. They can access these funds to pay for financial service transactions in Wipit’s mobile wallet apps or swipe a network branded GPR card for payments and ATM withdrawals. Now these consumers will also be able to use their mobile wallet funds to make retail POS or web payments.The company’s payment service is aimed at mobile consumers that are un-banked and underbanked, a market segment that includes 28% of all US households, according to the FDIC1. “Wipit believes very strongly in financial enablement for those whose needs are not met by traditional banking and payment services,” Wipit CEO Richard Kang said. “Omni-payments is a natural extension of our mobile wallet and will allow merchants to provide more options and better payment experiences to their customers.”Wipit’s new retail POS payment capability offers a next-generation solution for merchants across many different industry verticals, including: retail stores, transit operators, fast food restaurants, and gas stations. Online retailers, gaming companies and mobile e-commerce services can also leverage Wipit’s e-commerce payment capabilities to reach consumers who may not have access to digital payments.Merchants benefit from the ability to accept payments that do not incur traditional interchange fees, allowing for greater cost savings per transaction. Additionally, merchant loyalty programs can be coupled with Wipit payments for a complete approach to the customer experience.The technology is flexible, allowing merchants to decide how to best implement it for their own unique needs. POS payment functionality, for example, can be implemented using a variety of different technologies, including in-app barcodes, closed-loop payment cards, or NFC.“Omni-payment capability is the next step in the evolution of cash mobile payments,” said Kang. “We can design an end-to-end solution for merchants: mobile wallet functionality, a nationwide network of cash reload locations, integrated loyalty programs, and flexible payment technology that allows a variety of payment experiences. Wipit is focused not only on bringing the latest in payment technology to un-banked and underbanked consumers, but also helping to drive future innovation for them as well.”Interested parties should contact Vikram Kanodia, EVP of Strategy at [email protected] for additional information.About Wipit, Inc.Wipit provides integrated mobile payments, financial services, and prepaid debit card convenience to un-banked and underbanked consumers. The company has partnered with Sprint, a leading wireless service provider, to launch the revolutionary, co-branded Boost Mobile Wallet and Sprint Money Expressâ„¢ mobile wallet service.

Tea Party organizers seek local support

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell Book Nook to reopen Published 11:00 pm Wednesday, September 7, 2011 By The Penny Hoarder “Elaine McLeod contacted me about this and asked if I’d be willing to help,” Weed said. “About two years ago I did a little Tea Party rally here in town. There were about five or six of us spearheading that.”Since then, the economy has worsened; the divide between government and the citizens it serves has widened; and the public discourse has turned virulent – all factors calling for the Tea Party Movement to step forward, Weed said.“It’s driven by the current state of affairs in our country,” he sad. “Here we have the Tea Party being attacked not just for the far left but from the left … the rhetoric is absolutely unacceptable.”And government spending has spiraled. “We borrow somewhere around 42 cents of every dollar our government spends or gives away. When you borrow that much of every dollar you spend, it’s a recipe for disaster,” Weed said.

An organizational meeting begins at 7 p.m. today at the American Legion Building, 212 E. Walnut Street, in downtown Troy. It is open to anyone who wants more information about the Tea Party and its ideals. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “I know in our house if we’re spending $5,000 every month but only brining in $2,500, we have a problem and we have to adjust our spending habits.”Speaking out and providing a voice for Americans who want less government involvement and more fiscally responsible leaders is at the core of the Tea Party’s goals. According to the movement’s mission statement, “the impetus for the Tea Party movement is excessive government spending and taxation. Our mission is to attract, educate, organize and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets.”Weed said he hopes anyone with an interest in learning more about the Tea Party’s ideals will attend tonight’s informational meeting. It is free and open to the public.

Athletes team up to supply funeral for woman killed at home by police

first_imgeyfoto/iStock(FORT WORTH, Texas) — Sacramento Kings star Harrison Barnes and Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Malik Jackson joined forces this week to help supply funeral services for Atatiana Jefferson, a black woman who was fatally shot by a white police officer in her Texas home last week.Jefferson, 28, was playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew late Saturday night when she was fatally shot by a Fort Worth police officer who was conducting a wellness check.The officer, 34-year-old Aaron Dean, did not identify himself as an officer before he fired into the woman’s bedroom window, sparking national outrage and claims of excessive policing.Dean resigned and was charged Monday with murder. He has since been released on $200,000 bond.Barnes said he hadn’t spoken with Jefferson’s family since the “tragic situation,” but he felt like he had to do something to help.“My wife and I wanted to do something for that family,” Barnes told reporters Thursday. “No one should be killed during a wellness check. But the biggest thing is anytime someone has to go through that, the last thing you want to have to worry about is trying to come up with the money for a funeral.”“It was unfortunate. It should never have happened. You think of wellness check not being something that’s going to be fatal. So you want justice for the family. But at the same time, your heart goes out to the family that has to deal with that,” he added.Jefferson’s family’s attorney Lee Merritt told Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA-TV that Barnes paid half the service costs and Jackson paid the remainder.Bishop T.D. Jakes is scheduled to deliver the eulogy and the Rev. Al Sharpton is expected to offer special remarks at the funeral service, which will be open to the public.Jefferson’s viewing with be held on Friday at 7 p.m. and the funeral is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Saturday.Both services will be held at The Potter’s House in Dallas.Police said Jefferson, who had a license to carry, reached for her gun when she heard noises in her backyard and went to the window to investigate. Body camera footage released by the police department shows Dean approaching a rear window of the home with his gun drawn. The officer sees the woman through the window, shouts, “Put your hands up, show me your hands,” and fires one shot.“I realize that no action we take can replace the loss suffered here. I’m deeply sorry for what occurred,” Fort Worth Police Chief Ed Kraus said during a news conference earlier this week.“Human life is a precious thing, and should not have been taken from Ms. Jefferson,” Kraus said. “This incident has eroded the trust that we have built with our community and we must now work even harder to ensure that trust is restored.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
