Protesters at the North Carolina gubernatorial debate, Oct. 11.Durham, N.C. – A spirited demonstration of activists from nearly a dozen organizations was held Oct. 11 outside the North Carolina gubernatorial debate between Pat McCrory and Roy Cooper. They raised up a people’s agenda during the protest.The coalition — known as the Triangle May Day Unity coalition — raised the following people’s demands: 1) Stop police violence and murders! 2) End cooperation with ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement]! 3) Welcome Syrian refugees, end Islamophobia! 4) $15/hour minimum wage and collective bargaining rights for all workers!The coalition pointed out how both McCrory and Cooper have opposed the interests of the people and acted to advance a program that serves the 1% as well as all other racists and bigots:“The record implicates both candidates as representatives who are not for the people. McCrory’s House Bill 2 targeted transgendered people, limited the ability for local governments to enact minimum wage standards and took away protections for certain forms of employment discrimination. By signing into law HB318, McCrory signed an anti-immigrant bill that does not protect workers, and instead restricts the ability for communities to get ICE out of their cities and sets restrictive limits on jobless workers’ ability to receive food assistance. HB972 bars public access to police [camera] footage without [a judge’s] approval and creates an additional barrier for communities fighting for a more transparent and accountable criminal justice system.”The coalition decried Attorney General Roy Cooper’s refusal to retry the cop who shot and killed Jonathan Ferrell, a young unarmed Black man, on Sept. 14, 2013. So far in 2016, 29 people have been killed by law enforcement in North Carolina. Under Cooper’s watch, no cop has been prosecuted for killing someone, except for one who killed a white man.Activists noted that Cooper also supported McCrory’s request to stop sending Syrian refugees to North Carolina, showcasing both of their xenophobic and Islamophobic positions. McCrory signed an anti-Muslim (anti-Shariah) law in 2013 that was supported by many Democratic legislators. Neither candidate has supported the growing movement for a $15 minimum wage or the right of public workers in the state — and all workers — to collectively bargain.“The election process is disempowering for working people,” said Darrion Smith, a member of NC Public Service Workers Union, United Electrical Workers Local 150 and Black Workers for Justice. “We can’t just vote, we have to organize and exercise our power in the workplace, communities and in all of the institutions that impact the lives of the majority of the people. We need to build people’s power to hold elected officials and other institutions accountable to the needs of the majority of people, not the wealthy 1%. That’s why, not only will we be out raising up a people’s platform on Oct. 11, but will continue our efforts to convene a broad and united People’s Assembly that can bring together working people and build power.”The coalition plans to convene a Triangle-wide [Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill] People’s Assembly in December.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
News January 13, 2016 – Updated on May 23, 2016 “War reporters” – RSF’s new video campaign Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is today unveiling its new video campaign, “War reporters.” Its release coincides with the publication of RSF’s 50th book in the “100 photos for press freedom” series – this one dedicated to the work of Robert Capa. Created by the advertising agency BETC (Production Stink et Owen Trevor, Director), this video highlights the urgency of supporting photoreporters, without whom we would never know the realities of war.Let’s support those who risk their lives every day to keep us informed and provide us with independent images that are very different from the official ones served up by governments.As the photoreporter James Nachtwey said: “I have been a witness, and these pictures are my testimony. The events I have recorded should not be forgotten and must not be repeated.”There are the official images. And there is the reality. Photoreporters are heroes. They are men and women who put their life on the line every day.The craft has lost 40 percent of its personnel in the past 15 years. Supporting them is really urgent. Thanks to them, newspapers manage to publish reportage photos of great quality. New festivals enable photoreporters to continue working independently and to experience the public’s interest, which proves that the demand is there.Let’s support photoreporters, so that they are able to work in way that provides a vision of the world that is nuanced, human and complex, one that makes a debate possible.Let’s support those who show us what the official images don’t show.

TAGSAnti Austerity AllianceGateway schemeMusic Limerick THE Anti Austerity Alliance have outlined proposals to replace the Government’s controversial JobBridge and Gateway initiatives with a “real jobs programme of public works, free education and genuine training schemes”.The AAA’s costed plan, which would see around 6,000 jobs created in Limerick and 150,000 nationwide, was launched at a public meeting on Tuesday 8 in Limerick’s Pery’s Hotel.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Last week it emerged that 28 people had their social welfare payments reduced for refusing to go on the new Gateway scheme which requires people work up to 19.5 hours a week for local authorities for a period of 22 months, for a top-up of €20 on their welfare payment.AAA candidate for Limerick City East, Derrick Towell, described the Gateway initiative as state-sponsored slave labour. He claimed the scheme is being used to by the Government to attack the unemployed and to fill gaps in the local authority workforce caused by successive recruitment embargoes.“ScamBridge.ie have launched a campaign to make Gateway a major issue in the local elections. Here in Limerick the AAA will be taking part in that campaign too, as Limerick Council has been one of the biggest users of this scheme so far.“We are encouraging everyone opposed to this scheme to get involved in our local election campaign,” said Mr Towell.According to Limerick City West AAA candidate, John Loftus, the Government’s strategy of “driving down wages and hoping multinationals swoop and and save the day” has failed.“Thousands are emigrating every week, and rather than create jobs, companies are just getting in free labour through JobBridge. We think the Government must act and invest money in a programme of public works to create jobs,” said Mr Loftus.“As the RealJobs programme outlines, an investment of around €5 billion would create 150,000 jobs. When you consider they are spending €8 billion on servicing the debts built up by the banks, surely jobs should be a bigger priority?” he said. #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ WhatsApp Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday Twitter NewsLocal NewsAnti Austerity Alliance seeks ‘real jobs’ action for LimerickBy Alan Jacques – April 10, 2014 2900 Advertisement Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch Print Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy Previous articleEVA International 2014 is going to the dogsNext articleCatherine to cook up a treat in Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook Linkedin New Music: 40Hurtz

Police have released this photo of Heidi Broussard and her daughter Margot Carey after they were reported missing. – (Austin Police Department)(AUSTIN, Texas) — A body discovered at a home near Houston is believed to be that of Austin mother Heidi Broussard, who went missing with her infant daughter, Margot Carey, last week, according to Austin police.An infant girl was found alive at the scene who is believed to be Margot, Austin police said, however DNA testing is underway to confirm.One person has been arrested and charged with two counts of kidnapping and one count of tampering with a corpse, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference Friday.Police did not release the suspect’s identity but said that person was in custody Friday morning. Additional charges are possible, the chief said.The baby girl “is healthy and in the care of Child Protective Services,” police said.An autopsy will determine the identity of the woman believed to be Broussard, Manley said.The body and the baby were found when a dozen officers from the Texas Rangers, Texas Department of Public Safety, FBI and Austin Police Department converged on the house in northwest Harris County Thursday evening, according to ABC’s Houston station, KTRK.Authorities were focusing on a car in the back driveway of the house, KTRK reported.Broussard, 33, and her infant daughter, Margot, were last seen dropping off a child at Austin’s Cowan Elementary School on the morning of Dec. 12, according to Austin police.Investigators believe Broussard and her child returned home to their apartment complex after they left the school. They had not been heard from since, police said.Broussard’s fiance, Shane Carey, told ABC’s Austin affiliate, KVUE, that her car and all of her and the baby’s belongings were still at their home, and there were no signs of a struggle. The couple had been together for nearly 10 years, Carey said.The police chief on Friday offered his condolences that “we did not have two rescues.”“Our hearts and our minds are with Heidi and her family today,” he said.
