There are many questions to be answered,” Pato said.Thirty-four bishops and four archbishops from around the world  have signed a petition calling on the immediate halt to the drilling. These include the archbishop of Cape Town, the Most Rev. Thabo Cecil Makgoba; the archbishop and primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, the Most Rev. Linda Nicholls; Archbishop Julio Murray, chair of the Anglican Communion Environmental Network; Archbishop Mark MacDonald, national Indigenous archbishop in the Anglican Church of Canada; Bishop Kito Pikaahu, chair of the Anglican Indigenous Network; and the bishop of Salisbury, the Rt.

U.S. activists honor Mandela

first_imgPhiladelphiaPhiladelphiaGodfrey Sithole, Philadelphia area representative of the African National Congress, led many local anti-apartheid era activists who came despite snowy weather on Dec. 14 to celebrate President Nelson Mandela’s life. Particular attention was paid to Cuba’s solidarity with the struggles of South Africa’s masses. The highlight of the event was a video of Madiba’s speech in Philadelphia in 1994, in which he thanked longtime supporters of the struggle to free South Africa, in contrast to those “who became our friends just yesterday.”¡Viva Mandela, Viva!— Joseph PietteHoustonBongi Goba in HoustonA community commemoration for Nelson Mandela organized by activists in Houston’s African-American community brought people together at the Cultural Center of the Shrine of the Black Madonna on a cold, dreary Saturday, Dec. 14. Students, elders, religious leaders, activists and veterans of the Free South Africa movement shared remembrances, analyses and love. There were no politicians, no wealthy corporate leaders, only those who held Mandela close in their hearts, those who understood the enormity of his life, his struggle and his legacy.The warmth of the event began with two South African women singing the African National Congress national anthem, “Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika.” As four drummers kept a steady beat, speakers told of Mandela and his importance. Bongi Goba said: “I was born under apartheid. I had to carry a pass book. I didn’t know what the world was like outside of apartheid. However there was a name we knew in our four-room houses in the quarters in Soweto — Nelson Mandela. And we knew others, Steve Biko and South African masses who struggled and sacrificed so that apartheid no longer exists.”The exciting spirit of the evening ended with a poem by M. Thandabantu Iverson, brought to life by local poet Hitaji Aziz. The words rang true for all present: “now that Madiba is dead … beware the icon makers … beware the speakers of phrases that lie, they will disremember liberation struggles that have yet to be won, they will pretend that Mandela belonged to them, denying the people to whom he belonged … remember to remember Chris Hani, remember to remember Robben Island … then we will remember Mandela as he was, for he will live inside us, and the lies will no longer deceive, because the struggle will continue, and the last will be first at last.”— Gloria RubacProvidence, R.I.Providence, R.I.The Rhode Island Peoples’ Assembly and its six allied organizations — The RI Rosa Parks Human Rights Committee; the RI Martin Luther King Coalition; the RI Unemployed Council; the Campaign for Work, Wages and Wellbeing; the RI SOS Save Our Schools Coalition; and the RI Council of Elders — paid their respects to the South African freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela, at a candlelight vigil on Dec. 10 in Providence. Mandela, a leader of the African National Congress, former political prisoner and first democratically elected president of South Africa, died on Dec. 5 at the age of 95.— Bill BatemanNew York CityMonica Moorehead at South African Missionin New York.Monica Moorehead, a Workers World Party secretariat and national committee member, signed a condolences book on behalf of WWP in honor of the late Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela at the South African Mission to the United Nations. Moorehead also signed the book on behalf of the U.S. Out of Southern Africa Network, which helped to organize protests against the role of U.S. corporations such as Mobil Oil, Coca-Cola and others in propping up the then racist, apartheid regime during the mid-to-late 1980s.

Regalos venenosos de Koch

first_imgLa muerte en agosto del multimillonario derechista David Koch desató inmediatamente una serie de obituarios extensos en los medios corporativos. Estas mini biografías lo describen a él y a su hermano Charles Koch como “filántropos” y financieros de ideas derechistas y movimientos políticos.La atención de los medios sobre la muerte de David Koch hace recordar una cita de Karl Marx: “Las ideas de la clase dominante son en cada época las ideas dominantes” (“La ideología alemana”, 1845).Las fortunas capitalistas provienen de la explotación del trabajo, es decir, de robar a la clase trabajadora la riqueza que solo los trabajadores pueden producir. Los ricos a veces dejan de lado una pequeña parte de este botín y lo donan. Usualmente evitan pagar impuestos cuando donan a cambio de esta “filantropía”, obtienen sus nombres en edificios de hospitales y universidades, museos y salas de conciertos.Con la “filantropía” compran el respeto de los círculos creativos e intelectuales por los que no han hecho nada para ganar. También compran intelectuales que justifican la riqueza maltratada de la clase dominante.La cita de Marx fue sutil. Aplicado a la sociedad contemporánea de EE.UU. dominada por una clase dominante capitalista que apoya diferentes modelos políticos, todos ellos procapitalistas, significa lo siguiente: dado que esta clase paga a los intelectuales por su producción, esa producción no debe desafiar la propiedad privada y la capacidad de los capitalistas para explotar el trabajo.David Koch fue menos sutil. Su padre, Fred Koch, hizo negocios con Adolf Hitler y más tarde fundó la Sociedad ultra derechista y anticomunista John Birch. David y Charles Koch no fueron rebeldes de esta historia familiar. Aceptaron su herencia (su riqueza combinada se estimó recientemente en $100 mil millones) y usaron una parte de sus ingresos anuales para promover las ideas de su sección particular de extrema derecha de la clase dominante capitalista.Los hermanos Koch, y otros grandes capitalistas, han llevado esta “filantropía” a un nivel más directo y descarado. Establecieron centros de estudios, fundaciones que otorgan subvenciones a universidades e investigadores, y grupos de acción política, todo para promover sus ideas muy reaccionarias. Incluso utilizan organizaciones como el American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), un partidario del Tea Party, para que se apruebe la legislatura y consagran estas ideas como regla política.Toda “filantropía” capitalista construye la reputación del donante y, en general, difunde ideas aceptables para los capitalistas. Las donaciones de los Kochs se centran en la promoción de ideas de derecha, con una apariencia de libertarismo.A pesar de la cobertura libertaria, la filantropía de Koch no solo es anti-trabajadora y anti-ambiental, también es racista y misógina. Debido a que las fundaciones de Koch promueven candidatos de derecha, abandonaron las ideas libertarias clásicas contra la intervención del gobierno para respaldar el ataque contra las mujeres contra los derechos al aborto.Los Kochs atacan toda intervención gubernamental que ayude a los trabajadores y a los pobres. Denuncian cualquier regulación de la industria por razones sanitarias o medioambientales. Promueven grupos que intentan evitar que los afroamericanos y otras personas oprimidas voten.Además, los Kochs no quieren una regulación que pueda reducir las ganancias obtenidas por sus extensas propiedades en la industria del petróleo, el gas y la química. Esto incluye pagar a los investigadores para ofrecer argumentos contra el cambio climático.La riqueza heredada de David Koch trabajó para implantar las ideas políticas venenosas de su familia súper rica en la sociedad, haciendo de esas ideas una versión de la ideología de la clase dominante. Su muerte no hace nada para cambiar este proceso.Quienes luchan para derrocar a la sociedad capitalista deben luchar contra esas ideas procapitalistas, así como luchar para separar a los ricos de las riquezas que les permiten controlar las ideas. Finalmente, para derrocar al capitalismo, los trabajadores y los oprimidos también tendrán que luchar contra el aparato del poder estatal que protege la riqueza de los ricos.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Five police officers may be investigated in connection with Hrant Dink murder

first_img April 2, 2021 Find out more April 28, 2021 Find out more News Organisation TurkeyEurope – Central Asia The Turkish interior ministry has asked the judicial authorities to investigate five police officers attached to the Security Directorate in Istanbul on suspicion of failing to take the threats against newspaper editor Hrant Dink seriously and failing to protect him. Dink, who was of Armenian origin, was gunned down in January 2007.The five policemen – Bahadir Tekin, Özcan Özkan, Volkan Altinbulak, Ibrahim Pala and Sevki Eldivan – are alleged to have been remiss in not investigating threats that had been made against Dink for more than a year and for not tapping the phones of those suspected of being responsible. Pala and Eldivan are accused of failing to provide Dink with protection.The five police officers are expected to appeal against the request for an investigation. Reporters Without Borders nonetheless regards the request as a modest step forward and hopes that the investigation will go ahead. It also hopes that other Turkish officials will be investigated for their role in Dink’s murder.Born in 1954, Dink waged a determined campaign for Turkey to recognise the Armenian genocide. He was prosecuted many times in connection with his work as a journalist and was targeted by judicial officials and ultranationalists in the months prior to his death. He was gunned down on 19 January 2007 in the Istanbul district of Sisli, just a few meters from the entrance to Agos, the weekly newspaper he created in 1996.

Ron Hubbard in the mid-1970s, the Volunteer Minister program provides help “on a volunteer basis by restoring purpose, truth and spiritual values to the lives of others.” Mr. Hubbard described the Volunteer Minister as a person who “does not shut his eyes to the pain, evil and injustice of existence.”The Church of Scientology sets up its bright yellow tent in locations in and around Pasadena. Volunteer Ministers are there to help with any issue—a child who can’t read or study, the loss of a loved one, trouble at work, conflicts—even domestic violence. A series of 19 booklets contains simple technology anyone may learn to improve their handling of life problems. Video presentations and training in these tools are available online at the Scientology Volunteer Ministers website.Whether serving in their communities or on the other side of the world, the motto of the Scientology Volunteer Minister is “Something can be done about it.” The program, created in the mid 1970s by L. Ron Hubbard and sponsored by the Church of Scientology International as a religious social service, constitutes one of the world’s largest international independent relief forces.

Observations and modelling of increased nitric oxide in the Antarctic polar middle atmosphere associated with geomagnetic storm driven energetic electron precipitation

first_imgNitric oxide (NO) produced in the polar middle and upper atmosphere by energetic particle precipitation depletes ozone in the mesosphere and, following vertical transport in the winter polar vortex, in the stratosphere. Medium energy electron (MEE) ionization by 30–1000 keV electrons during geomagnetic storms may have a significant role in mesospheric NO production. However, questions remain about the relative importance of direct NO production by MEE at altitudes ~60–90 km versus indirect NO originating from auroral ionization above 90 km. We investigate potential drivers of NO variability in the southern‐hemisphere mesosphere and lower thermosphere during 2013–14. Contrasting geomagnetic activity occurred during the two austral winters, with more numerous moderate storms in the 2013 winter. Ground‐based millimeter‐wave observations of NO from Halley, Antarctica are compared with measurements by the Solar Occultation For Ice Experiment (SOFIE) space‐borne spectrometer. NO partial columns over the altitude range 65–140 km from the two observational datasets show large day to day variability and significant disagreement, with Halley values on average 49% higher than the corresponding SOFIE data. SOFIE NO number densities, zonally averaged over geomagnetic latitudes ‐59°to ‐65°, are up to 3×108 cm‐3 higher in the winter of 2013 compared to 2014. Comparisons with a new version of the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model, which includes detailed D‐region ion chemistry (WACCM‐SIC) and MEE ionization rates, show that the model underestimates NO in the winter lower mesosphere whereas thermospheric abundances are too high. This indicates the need to further improve and verify WACCM‐SIC with respect to MEE ionization, thermospheric NO chemistry, and vertical transport.last_img read more
