first_imgProtest after Mohamed Brahmi’s assassination on July 25 in Tunisia.Tunisian workers and youth shut down the North African country on July 26, when the largest trade union federation and other political organizations held a general strike. The actions were in response to the July 25 assassination of Popular Front leftist politician, Mohamed Brahmi, 58, who was shot 14 times outside his home near the capital of Tunis.Brahmi, a member of the legislative, 217-member National Constituent Assembly, is the second left political figure to be assassinated. In February, Chokri Belaid was murdered, also outside his home. Tunisia Minister of the Interior Lofti Ben Jeddou reported that both leaders were killed with the same weapon.The general strike on July 26 and the funeral of Brahmi on July 27 brought out hundreds of thousands of people who expressed their opposition to the current government dominated by the moderate-Islamist Ennahda party. Demonstrations were held in the capital, Tunis, as well as the southern mining areas at Gafsa and the town of Sidi Bouzid, the birthplace of the uprising in December 2010, which spread across the country and led to the forced removal of longtime Western-allied president, Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.Initiated by the General Union of Tunisian Labor (UGTT), the leading trade union alliance, the work stoppage and demonstrations were held under the theme of stopping “terrorism, violence and murders.” Thousands gathered outside the UGTT headquarters on July 26, planning to march down the city’s main street to the Interior Ministry building when they were attacked by riot police using teargas.UGTT Deputy Secretary-General Sami Tahri stated that all sectors of the labor force observed the strike, including health services, public transport and banking. The UGTT claims 500,000 members.In Sidi Bouzid, demonstrators threw firebombs at the headquarters of the Ennahda party. The sister of the slain politician Chhiba Brahmi pointed her finger at the Ennahda party as being responsible for the assassination. “I accuse Ennahda. It was them who killed him.”Similar accusations were made in February in the aftermath of the killing of Belaid.Political crisis deepens In TunisiaThe assassination of Mohamed Brahmi is a reflection of the political crisis in Tunisia that has developed since the overthrow of Ben Ali. At the funeral of Brahmi on July 27, tens of thousands gathered with many chanting, “The people want to topple the regime! Ghannouchi! Assassin! Criminal!” (France 24, July 27)Rached Ghannouchi is the leader of the Ennahda party and has played a prominent role within the former opposition movement against Ben Ali. Ghannouchi stayed in exile for many years and was only unbanned after the fall of the previous regime.The Ennahda-led government has denied any involvement in the assassination. Ghannouchi described the murder of Brahmi as “a catastrophe for Tunisia,” saying, “Those behind this want to lead the country towards civil war and disrupt the democratic transition.” (, July 26)Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki declared Friday, July 26, as a day of mourning and requested that the military grant Brahmi a state funeral. The government delayed the funeral another day, saying this was to avoid the further escalation of tensions. (Reuters, July 26)On July 29, the Ettakatol party called for the governing coalition led by Ennahda to resign and make way for the creation of a new, national unity government. A spokesman for Ettakatol stated, “If Ennahda refuses this proposal we will withdraw from the government.” (Reuters, July 29)If Ettakatol withdraws from the coalition it will pose a serious dilemma for the prime minister, Ali Larayedh. Noureddine Bhiri, a spokesman for Larayedh, said that the demonstrations taking place in Tunisia were tantamount to “the destruction of the state.” (Reuters, July 29)On July 29, rival protests outside the NCA building at Bardo Square in Tunis openly clashed, throwing rocks at each other. Both supporters of Ennahda and those demanding the resignation of the Ennahda-led current government have been staging sit-ins in the area.After the fencing-in of Bardo Square, a lawmaker who had resigned from the Constituent Assembly was reportedly beaten by security forces and taken to a hospital. One opposition figure, Manji Rahawi, was quoted as saying, “The prime minister will be held accountable for any drop of blood spilled in the Bardo sit-in.”The sit-in began on July 27, when some 42 deputies withdrew from the legislative body in protest over the continuation of the current government. The deputies belonged to various political parties, including the Republican Party, El-Massar, Al-Moubadara, Nidaa Tounes, Afek Tounes, the People’s Front and the Democratic Alliance, in addition to independents.An article published by Tunis Afrique Press reports, ”These deputies following the assassination of People’s Movement Coordinator-General and NCA Deputy Mohamed Brahmi, are proclaiming a national salvation government led by an independent national personality who will not stand for any electoral event and entrusting the completion of the Constitution to a committee of experts before submitting it to a referendum as soon as possible.” (July 27)The much desired constitution was discussed after the fall of Ben Ali in January 2011 but has not been finished in two-and-a-half years. Since the overthrow of the former government under Ben Ali, the economy, based largely on tourism and mining, has continued to decline.Political developments in neighboring Egypt have their impact in Tunisia. In Egypt, the military seized power on July 3 following mass demonstrations opposing the Muslim Brotherhood government. Members of the secular opposition in the National Salvation Front (Egypt) have supported the military actions and some are participating in the newly appointed interim governing council.Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki, President of the National Constituent Assembly Mustapha Ben Jaafar and Interim Prime Minister Ali Larayedh reportedly held a consultation meeting on July 27 in Carthage to evaluate the political crisis in the country. Mufdi al-Masady, spokesman for the NCA, told a local radio station, “The trend now is to move towards expanding the base of power.”Both the secular liberal and left parties, along with the Islamist forces, have formidable constituencies in the country. The UGTT will undoubtedly play a significant and even pivotal role in the developing crisis, having the strength to engage in general strikes and mass demonstrations.There will be no resolution for the mass of Tunisian workers and farmers if there is no real break with imperialism and the formation of a revolutionary government. This government will have to function outside of the influence and domination of both the former colonial power of France and of the United States, which has utilized the country in its so-called “war on terrorism” in North Africa.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgThe following is an Aug. 22 news release from the Andalusian Workers Union (Sindicato Andaluz de Trabajadores − SAT − an anti-capitalist organization of rural and urban workers in the Andalusian Autonomous Community located in the south of Spain, home to 8.3 million people). At this time when another worldwide recession threatens, this story behind an upcoming trial reveals how a militant action by a workers’ organization can spark a broad struggle. Original article at Translation by John Catalinotto.Twenty SAT militants will face a new trial on Sept. 5. The case pertains to the expropriation of food from a Mercadona shopping center in August 2012, seven years ago. The Public Prosecutor’s Office and Mercadona’s private prosecution have requested a total of 30 years in prison for all defendants, 18 months per person. It is worth recalling the circumstances of the summer of 2012 in which SAT carried out a series of actions, including the expropriation of basic foodstuffs from a Carrefour supermarket in Arcos de la Frontera (Cadiz province) and from a Mercadona supermarket in Écija (Seville province).Andalusia was then facing the hardest blows of the 2007-08 capitalist crisis, with 1.5 million unemployed people and 300,000 families with no income whatsoever. Dozens of home evictions occurred daily, and there were long lines at soup kitchens. Some 30 percent of our children could not afford adequate and necessary food.Food discarded, as families go hungryMeanwhile, 400,000 tons of food were thrown away. News stories opened with reports of risk premium [the amount of extra interest needed to obtain loans], interest rates and the possibility of a bailout for Spain. At the same time, they hid the news about families suffering during the five years of continuing economic crisis.Within this framework, we from SAT initiated a mobilization campaign with the goal of bringing this bitter reality to the surface — so that there would be less talk about risk premiums and more about the needs of ordinary people. It was also necessary to point out the culprits behind the crisis and explain that is why people occupied bank branches. At the same time that they protested the conditions, they planned possible solutions.In July 2012, people occupied town halls and employment offices, demanding from both the central and autonomous regional governments a special employment plan that would create jobs in our villages. They also occupied Las Turquillas, an estate owned by the Ministry of Defense, for over 20 days, demanding that its 1,200 hectares [about 3,000 acres] be put to work and generate [agricultural] employment in the region. Months earlier, in March, they also occupied the Somonte public estate to prevent its privatization.Feed the people!With this mobilization program, people agreed to expropriate basic foodstuffs in order to draw public attention to the critical situation where thousands of families were suffering and going hungry in Andalusia.This action was followed by the “Andalusia on Foot Marches” in August and September of 2012, which toured the eight provinces, connecting the rural population with the urban population and uniting the struggles of both. The food expropriations and marches generated an expanding wave that strengthened all the struggles, not only that of the SAT. This wave of struggle led to the “Marches of Dignity” on March 22, 2014, which brought 1.5 million individuals, representing all the different peoples of the Spanish state, to Madrid. They demanded an end to the policies that made us pay for the crisis, when we had done nothing to cause the crisis. We are being accused of theft. Normally, when someone steals, they try to profit from that theft. The basic foodstuffs, which had a minimum monetary value, were delivered freely and openly. The media were also present then in La Corrala Utopía, a block of flats that homeless, impoverished families had occupied for months.The two expropriation actions were carried out simultaneously in the Carrefour supermarket in Arcos de la Frontera and the Mercadona supermarket in Écija. In neither case was there any violence. The food carts left quickly through the door without the security guards reacting in time to prevent the actions. In Arcos, Carrefour opted not to press charges and to take responsibility for the “delivery” of the food. Mercadona, on the other hand, brought charges accusing us of theft by force.Since then, the situation for the people of Andalusia has changed little. Now unemployment is simply disguised as precarious employment. That means that thousands of working Andalusian families are poor, even though they have work contracts. This is because the bosses breach labor conventions and basic labor rights. Twisted justiceHowever, it can be said that those expropriation actions put a spotlight on the reality that had been hidden for years, while millions of people suffered in silence. That is why it is more necessary than ever that on Sept. 5 all the dignity and solidarity that remains are set in motion once more to defend those of us who are again facing the bosses’ justice. It is twisted justice that imprisons day laborers and represses those who rebel, while freeing corrupt bankers and family members of the Bourbon monarchy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A Purdue specialist can confirm the pest is back. John Obermeyer is an Integrated Pest Management Specialist who says the moths are migrating from the southwest.“As in every year we monitor for black cutworm arrival into the state and just as every year they have arrived,” he told HAT. “Although not the largest numbers we’ve ever seen, monitoring now for 20 plus years, but there is certainly a significant number and at the time when they were coming in bigger numbers now their development is probably going to coincide well with especially some of that later planted corn that went in.”Obermeyer says the moths are definitely attracted to certain fields, particularly those with lots of weeds, “especially chickweeds and dandelions and henbits, and you name it. And of course the producers do the best they can to burn all that down or till it before crop emergence, but sometimes the cutworms have already established in there and they’ve already started to develop and just as the weeds are dying back the corn crop is emerging and that’s when the bad things start to happen.”To prevent those bad things from happening scouting fields is a must. And it’s best to scout fields even where Bt corn is planted and fields with seed applied insecticide. Those fields are not immune even with that built in protection.“When we have heavy infestations sometimes it’s just not enough and it’s a great idea for producers to get out and check fields and if necessary apply a foliar insecticide if the damage is over 3-5 percent leaf feeding and cutting as well.”In what he calls high risk situations, Obermeyer says not even the higher rates of seed applied insecticide are enough to keep damage at bay.

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Director of Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Mark Calabria this past week spoke with SitusAMC’s Head of Industry Relations, Tim Rood for the Situs podcast “On The Hill,” a show on which Rood regularly interviews high-level government officials and department representatives about federal policy, changes, and the effect on the real estate industry.Prior to joining FHFA in 2019, Calabria was Chief Economist for VPOTUS Mike Pence, spent eight years as Director of Financial Regulation Studies at the Cato Institute, and served as a senior aide on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs.Rood explains to his audience that Calabria drafted significant portions of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA), which created a new regulatory framework for the government-sponsored enterprises, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks.That gives Calabria a wealth of insight when it comes to the more-modern recession.Calabria tells Rood how “coming of age in the aftermath of the savings and loan crisis” and spending seven years on the Senate Banking Committee shaped his approach to regulating Fannie and Freddie.“My philosophy as a regulator is to hope for the best but plan for the worst,” he said. “What’s the worst 5 percent scenario? Even if only 5 percent likely to happen, there’s too much at stake to cut corners. It’s the decisions of these companies that landed them in the conservatorship. How do you get them to take ownership of their own decisions? How do you create a culture in these companies where they stand up and say we’re not going to enable bad behavior?” Home / Daily Dose / Coming of Age After a Savings and Loan Crisis March 25, 2021 746 Views Previous: Increasing Numbers of Homeowners Leave Large Coastal Metros Next: Consumers Begin the Slow Comeback From COVID-19-Related Recession Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Just click the box below to hear the full episode.

first_imgCourtesy Attorney Jennifer Hansen(ST. LOUIS) — Two former daycare workers were arrested and charged this week after they were caught on video injuring children — one of whom needed stitches after she was thrown headfirst into furniture.Ariana Silver and Wilma Brown were charged with abuse of a child after video showed each of them in two separate incidents harming students at the Brighter Daycare and Preschool in Pine Lawn, just north of St. Louis.Surveillance video allegedly shows Silver grabbing a 4-year-old girl’s arm so hard that her nails punctured the child’s skin and left bruising, authorities said.The police discovered the video while investigating the incident involving Brown, said Sgt. Kevin Smith of the North County Police Cooperative on Wednesday. In that incident, authorities say Brown can be seen on camera throwing a 3-year-old girl across the room so hard that she hits her head on a cabinet, splitting it open.The girl required seven stitches and ultimately remained hospitalized for three days after her wound became infected, the family’s attorney, Jennifer Hansen, previously told ABC News.The incident involving Brown happened on Feb. 1 and the one involving Silver happened on Feb. 4.Brown initially told the parents of the girl that she had fallen. However, her parents became suspicious after the girl’s second hospital visit, when they realized that something more serious appeared to have happened, Hansen told ABC News. Hansen said that five days after the incident, family members of the girl went to the daycare center and asked to see surveillance video, which they subsequently recorded on their phones. She added that the daycare director had taken Brown at her word, and didn’t see the video until the family of the girl asked to see the video.“After seeing this horrific video and videos from multiple cases in recent weeks, I am committed to doing everything I can to protect our children and grandchildren,” Missouri Gov. Mike Parson said in a statement to ABC News.Both employees have been terminated from the daycare center, Smith and Hansen said.Police arrested Silver on Thursday and took her into custody at the St. Louis County Intake Center, where she was being held on $50,000 cash-only bond.Brown was arrested on Friday after an overnight search. She was found hiding in the basement closet of an “associate,” police said, adding that she was being transferred to the St. Louis County Intake Center.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
