After kidnapping of students, mass protests rock Mexico

first_imgProtesters take to the streets in Mexico City, Nov. 5, in one of many protests demanding the return of 43 missing students.Photo: Alan RothMexico continues to be rocked by massive protests after the disappearance of 43 students from the city of Iguala, Guerrero state, on Sept. 27. The youth had been handed over to local drug lords by police who fired on a student demonstration, killing six and wounding many more.Many bodies have since been found in mass graves in the area, but none have matched the missing students’ DNA. That means many others have been killed, showing the widespread use of terror by those in power.One of the largest protests took place in Mexico City on Nov. 5, when an estimated 150,000 people gathered, according to latintimes.com. Since then, the struggle has grown even more militant. On Nov. 8, during another large demonstration in Mexico’s capital, enraged students tried to break down the main doors of the National Palace, using a police barricade as a battering ram and then setting the doors on fire. (presstv)On the same day, in Chilpancingo, the capital of Guerrero state, hundreds of students hurled firebombs and stones at state buildings, demanding “They took them alive, we want them back alive!”Mexico has been in a state of crisis for decades, especially since the so-called North American Free Trade Agreement undercut millions of small farmers. NAFTA had been pushed on the country in 1994 by U.S. corporations and Mexico’s comprador bourgeoisie. The result has been an economic depression, especially in the countryside as U.S.-based agribusiness captured the market, and mass emigration in search of work. Added to the reasons for leaving is the threat of horrific violence by the authorities and their criminal cohorts. More people leave Guerrero to go north than from any other Mexican state.One year after NAFTA took effect, at least 17 peasants on a protest march in the city of Aguas Blancas had been gunned down by Guerrero state police. Aguas Blancas is less than an hour’s drive from the luxurious tourist resort city of Acapulco.Increased state repression against the workers and farmers has paralleled impunity given to drug lords, who work hand-in-hand with the police to keep the people down through a reign of terror.Where are the calls for sanctions or blockades against the Mexican government in response to these atrocities? Not a peep from Washington or other self-designated “democratic” states, which frequently use these political and economic tools to break down countries resisting imperialist control of their national economies.But the youth, farmers and workers of Mexico are not waiting for the imperialist states to help them. They are reviving the revolutionary traditions of struggle that have deep roots in their country.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

EDITORIAL – Stonewall significa unirse para luchar

first_imgLos gobernantes reaccionarios de los EE.UU. intentan desalentar, dividir y derrotar a los pobres, los oprimidos y los trabajadores de cualquier manera posible, en cualquier oportunidad posible.Sylvia Rivera, miembro de Young Lords, veterana de Stonewall Uprising, fundadora de Street Transvestites Action Revolutionaries (STAR).Mire la táctica de operaciones psicológicas que intentó el supremacista blanco Trump al organizar su primer mitin de campaña 2020 en Tulsa, Okla., Lugar de una horrenda masacre de personas de la raza negra por personas de raza blanca en 1921, el 19 de junio, la tradicional celebración negra de la Proclamación de Emancipación.A mediados del Mes del Orgullo, la administración Trump-Pence lanzó otro ataque brutal contra personas LGBTQ2S+. El 12 de junio, el Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos anunció la cancelación de todas las protecciones no discriminatorias para las personas LGBTQ2S+ para el acceso a la atención médica y el seguro de salud en virtud de la Ley de Asistencia Asequible.Y el gobierno anunció deliberadamente esta noticia en el aniversario de la Masacre de Pulse 2016 en Orlando, Florida. Cuarenta y nueve personas fueron asesinadas allí el 12 de junio de 2016, en un club nocturno LGBTQ2S+, en su mayoría jóvenes de color queer, 90 por ciento latinx.La orden del HHS dio a los fanáticos el visto bueno para negar el acceso de personas queer, no conformes con el género y personas trans a una cita con el médico, una prueba COVID-19, servicios de aborto y reproducción, la sala de emergencias y el seguro de salud.El momento de la orden del HHS fue diseñado cínicamente para ser desmoralizante. No hay duda de que en medio de una pandemia global, esta decisión significa que más personas LGBTQ2S+ morirán. Ya más del 50 por ciento de las personas queer experimentan alguna forma de discriminación en la atención médica; una de cada cinco personas trans no tiene cobertura de salud simplemente por su identidad trans. (tinyurl.com/yb4t4a6x)Tia Sherèe Gaynor, profesora de ciencias políticas de la Universidad de Cincinnati, enfatizó que para las personas trans negras se les niega la atención médica: “Son capas de opresión, es transfobia además del racismo además de la opresión económica”. (npr.org, 12 de junio)SCOTUS confirma inesperadamente las protecciones de discriminaciónEn un fallo sorpresivo del 15 de junio, la Corte Suprema de Estados Unidos de mayoría conservadora parece haber contradicho el ataque de Trump. SCOTUS sostuvo que la ley federal existente prohíbe la discriminación laboral en base a la orientación sexual y el estado transgénero, una gran victoria para los activistas LGBTQ2S+ que han luchado por eso durante décadas.La victoria se obtuvo de este estado capitalista solo porque las masas están en un movimiento tremendo, enojado y rebelde contra las múltiples opresiones, con una brillante participación y liderazgo de personas de color LGBTQ2S+. Tal concesión ha sucedido antes; la decisión de 1973 de Roe v. Wade que otorgó el derecho al aborto también fue forzada por un movimiento de masas fuera de un SCOTUS conservador.Pero la estrategia de la clase dominante de divide y vencerás continúa. Fue revelado en otro fallo el mismo día de la victoria: SCOTUS rechazó una audiencia por casos que cuestionaban la inmunidad de los agentes de policía. Una demanda clave del movimiento Black Lives Matter es el fin de que los policías estén protegidos contra el enjuiciamiento por sus acciones brutales y asesinas. Dos fallos, uno sí y otro no, diseñados para abrir una brecha entre quienes se unieron en este movimiento masivo.Sin embargo, sabemos que cuando luchamos juntos, ¡ganamos! Este mes del Orgullo estamos en medio de una lucha histórica llena de esperanza y lucha contra el fanatismo: un levantamiento masivo multinacional y multigénero sin precedentes contra el racismo y la represión policial. En los Estados Unidos, desde Los Ángeles hasta Pensacola, Florida, hasta la ciudad de Nueva York, las personas LGBTQ2S+ son parte de este levantamiento y están vinculando las luchas compartidas por muchas comunidades de personas oprimidas.Las raíces del Mes del Orgullo están en la rebelión: la Taberna del Gato Negro, la Cafetería de Compton y los levantamientos del Bar Stonewall de la década de 1960 cuando las personas queer, dirigidas por mujeres trans de color, lucharon por la liberación.Miembros de STAR (Street Travestite Action Revolutionaries), combatientes en Stonewall, emitieron un manifiesto de 1970 que predijo las demandas que ahora se gritaban en 2020. STAR exigió el fin de la homofobia, el racismo, el encarcelamiento, el acoso policial y la discriminación laboral, y dijo: “Todos oprimidos las personas deberían tener educación gratuita, atención médica, ropa, comida, transporte y vivienda”.El manifiesto terminó: “Queremos un gobierno revolucionario de los pueblos, donde los travestis, la gente de la calle, las mujeres, los homosexuales, los puertorriqueños, [los pueblos indígenas] y todas las personas oprimidas sean libres, y no sean jodidos por este gobierno que nos trata como a los escoria de la tierra y nos mata como moscas, uno por uno, y nos arroja a la cárcel para que nos pudramos. Este gobierno que gasta millones de dólares para ir a la luna y deja que los estadounidenses pobres mueran de hambre “. (zagria.blogspot.com)Con los levantamientos de Estados Unidos contra el linchamiento de George Floyd por parte de policías, millones de personas en todo el mundo han salido a las calles, juntas en solidaridad por la liberación de las personas y los trabajadores oprimidos en todas partes.A principios de la década de 1970, YAWF – Juventud contra la Guerra y el Fascismo, una unidad de Workers World Party, llevaba una gran pancarta: “¡Stonewall significa contraatacar!” [Stonewall means fight back!]Sí, así es como se gana la lucha: luchar por la liberación de los demás como si fuera la nuestra, porque esa solidaridad nos traerá la liberación a todos.Stonewall todavía significa contraatacar.

TV host wounded in shooting, motive still unknown

first_img Organisation Follow the news on Dominican Republic Journalists in the city of Santiago de los Caballeros are all worried for their safety today following yesterday’s attack on José Yordi Veras Rodríguez, the producer and presenter of a discussion programme on privately-owned Boreal Televisión-Canal 25, who was shot in the neck and jaw by an unidentified gunman as he arrived at the TV station.The TV show host was rushed to a hospital, where doctors said his injuries were not life-threatening. The motive for the shooting is not yet known.Veras is also a lawyer who sometimes defends sensitive cases, so the motive may have been linked to one of these. The shooting serves as a reminder that, despites its reassuring touristic image, the Dominican Republic continues to be a dangerous country in which journalists who dare to tackle such subjects as drug trafficking or corruption are still exposed to threats, reprisals and physical attacks.Yesterday’s attack took place shortly after 6 a.m., as Veras was about to park his car outside Boreal Televisión-Canal 25. A hooded man appeared and fired through the driver’s side window. Members of the TV station’s staff rushed him to a hospital where he underwent surgery to his injuries and doctors later said he was out of danger.It was in Santiago de los Caballeros that Normando García a cameraman with privately-owned Teleunión, was murdered in August 2008. The authorities should respond to this latest shooting by taking energetic measures to protect journalists and media workers. Until now, their response has not been adequate.Reporters Without Borders hopes that the motive for yesterday’s shooting will be quickly established and that justice will be done.Veras is the son of Ramón Antonio Veras, a prominent human rights lawyer and opponent of Gen. Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, who ruled the Dominican Republic as dictator from 1930 to 1961.

‘Brave’ Texas father helps thwart possible mass shooting by calling cops on his son

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(FORT WORTH, Texas) — A possible mass shooting was thwarted in Texas after a concerned father called police on his son.Fort Worth officers were able to intercept a 27-year-old man with mental health issues who was searching for a gun.The incident occurred Sept. 3, and police publicly released details about the incident Monday. It happened exactly one month after 22 people were gunned down at a Walmart about 600 miles away in El Paso, Texas.Fort Worth Police Department public information officer Buddy Calzada told ABC News that the man, whose name is not being publicly released, was known to police.“It was reported that he had withdrawn money and stated he was going to buy guns,” Caldaza said of the man.Police reported that the man was turned down when he tried to buy guns at “several” local stores as a result of background checks.Members of the police department’s Crisis Intervention Team searched for the suspect and found him in west downtown Fort Worth with $600 to $700 cash, and he “stated he was going to buy a gun off the street.”“He made multiple statements to officers indicating he was going to harm many people and kill as many as he could,” Caldaza said.The responding officer, Landon Rollins, said that the man “believed I was trying to kill him right then and there with my mind,” according to a report in The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which Caldaza confirmed.The man was apprehended and transported to a local mental health facility, where he currently remains. He’s not currently facing charges, and his release date from the mental health facility hasn’t been determined.Caldaza said he believes the man’s father saved lives.“He’s extremely brave,” Caldaza said of the father, whose name also hasn’t been released. “It’s hard. I’m a father myself, and it’s hard for me to discipline my kids and put them in check, and if I had to call and ask someone else to do it, that would make it even tougher.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

An examination of the precipitation regime at Thurston Island, Antarctica, from ECMWF re-analysis data

first_imgIn this study numerical weather prediction model data are utilized to examine the precipitation regime at Thurston Island (TI) (∼72°S, 99°W) in West Antarctica. This region was chosen because the precipitation may well reflect the high variability of cyclones in the Amundsen Sea, which in some years appears related to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon. The data used are derived from the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Re-Analysis (ERA) project, encompassing the 15-year period from 1979 to 1993. A comparison of monthly TI precipitation derived from both ERA and ECMWF operational data for a 101-month overlap period demonstrates that the known ERA problems associated with moisture fluxes over Antarctica are not significant at TI. The annual precipitation cycle at TI (mean of 713 mm water equivalent) is related directly to the frequency of cyclones in the Amundsen Sea, which, in turn, reflects the semi-annual oscillation. The majority of these systems develop in the circumpolar trough although ∼4% undergo cyclogenesis east of New Zealand. No trends in precipitation at TI can be discerned in the model data. Significant precipitation at TI occurs when the longwaves over the Pacific are amplified such that an intense low (blocking high) pressure is located west (east) of the island. Correlations between TI precipitation and mean sea level pressure in these two regions suggest that they are of equal importance in determining the precipitation that falls at TI. There is a small but significant anticorrelation between TI precipitation and the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) from 1990 onwards. It is postulated that an increase in cyclone intensity during the El Niño years of the early 1990s is at least partially responsible because cyclone numbers are well correlated to the SOI during this period. No consistent relationship between TI precipitation and SOI is observed prior to 1990 in the ERA data. Copyright © 2000 Royal Meteorological Societylast_img read more

US Navy Convenes Second Phase of Enlisted Retention Board at NPC

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Convenes Second Phase of Enlisted Retention Board at NPC View post tag: Second View post tag: board Authorities The second phase of the Navy’s Enlisted Retention Board convened at Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Sept. 26.ERB Phase II will review the records of 7, 792 Sailors in pay grades E-6 thru E-8 who meet eligibility requirements outlined in NAVADMIN 129/11. The quota and performance based board is charged with identifying the most fully qualified Sailors for retention. Combined, the first and second phase ERB will review approximately 16,000 records for about 13,000 available retention quotas. The primary criterion for retention is sustained superior performance.ERB was announced earlier this year as the Navy faces record-high retention and low attrition among active-duty Sailors. The purpose of the board is to reduce over manning in 31 ratings and to help the Navy meet congressionally mandated end-strength.The ERB was divided into two four-week phases in order to reduce the amount of time selection board members would be required to be away from their commands.The first phase of the ERB convened Aug. 22 to review the records of ERB-eligible Sailors in pay grades E-4 and E-5. That board adjourned Sept. 16 and forwarded its recommendations to NPC.Community managers from the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS) are currently reviewing the Phase I board’s recommendations for conversion opportunities outlined in NAVADMIN 180/11 before forwarding the board’s recommendations to the Chief of Naval Personnel for approval.Phase II results will also be reviewed by BUPERS for conversion opportunities after the board adjourns.Navy expects to release Phase I results in October and Phase II results in November.Sailors not selected for retention on active-duty are encouraged to consider Reserve affiliation and will have access to the Navy’s transition assistance management program and other benefits for members who are involuntary separated.[mappress]Source: navy, September 27, 2011 View post tag: of View post tag: Retention Share this article View post tag: NPC View post tag: At View post tag: Enlisted View post tag: Convenes US Navy Convenes Second Phase of Enlisted Retention Board at NPC View post tag: Navy September 27, 2011 View post tag: phase View post tag: Naval View post tag: US View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more

How to avoid catching the common cold

first_img (File Photo/Federated Media) As the cold weather sneaks in do you feel a slight sniffle in your nose or dryness in your throat?Dr. Anthony Zabel with I.U. Health says there is some truth to a cold being connected to a change in the weather because your health is impacted by everything in the environment.“There’s a percentage of the population that actually carries common viruses that cause the common cold in your nose all the time,” he said. “When your physical nose gets cold blood vessels constrict, and your immune system is less able to get into your nose to help to keep those viruses well controlled.”He says you can also catch a cold from being out in the cold air too long, or you may have winter allergies that stem from turning on the furnace for the first time and blowing dust and mold into the air of your house.His advice is to keep your nose covered if you’re prone to catching a cold when you’re out in the cold for too long or reach out to your doctor if you start developing common cold symptoms.“If you’re having regular cold symptoms, maybe a little bit of a scratchy throat and some sniffles, it could be indoor allergies, it could be a different viral infection, or it could be coronavirus,” Dr. Zabel said.He said your doctor may have you take a coronavirus test, but if it comes back negative you’ll at least know if you can return to the workplace and how to manage your symptoms.One way to manage those symptoms is a remedy you’ve been using for years: chicken noodle soup.“Chicken soup actually does make you feel better if you’re sick,” he said. “Whether it’s the warmth of something warm in your throat to soothe a sore throat, or it is a comfort food, which can pick up your spirits overall.”He said other natural remedies you can take is Zinc or vitamin C to help prevent or recover from an infection. Rest, a well-balanced diet, and keeping the stress low can also help fight off a common cold.
