Anti-racist, anti-capitalist: Boston Pride in protest

Jaquarrius Holland, 18. Alphonza Watson, 38. Chay Reed, 29. Mx. Bostick, 59. Sherrell Faulkner, 46. Kenne McFadden, 27. Presente!Bigger-than-life photos of the 12 trans people of color reported murdered so far in the U.S. in 2017 were hoisted as their names were shouted out to a crowd of thousands during a coordinated disruption of the Boston Pride Parade on June 10.“Marsha P. Johnson has a big puppet here honoring her,” legal observer Jasmine Gomez reported over social media as she filmed the disruption. “She was the first Black trans woman ever asked to lead a Pride parade, and she is taking over now and just got in front of [Boston Mayor] Marty Walsh!”The disruption was planned by groups that included the Network/La Red, Stonewall Warriors, Workers World Party, National Lawyers Guild and others.Activists at the front of the march risked arrest to confront spectators with reminders of the staggering rate of violence that trans women of color face. Stonewall Warriors and WWP organizers also created space, under the umbrella of a “QTPoC Liberation/Anti-Capitalist Contingent,” for broad multinational, multigenerational participation in the Boston Pride Parade.The outspoken revolutionary youth who joined Stonewall Warriors to help organize the contingent drafted a call for an anti-racist, anti-capitalist protest at the 2017 Boston Pride Parade. Their leaflet identified four demands designed to honor “the riot that made the parade” — the historic Stonewall Rebellion of June 1969 in New York City.‘The riot that made the parade’The Stonewall Rebellion was a fightback against daily police repression of drag queens and trans and queer people, mostly people of color. The Stonewall Rebellion is the single event most widely seen as having ushered in a mass struggle movement across the U.S. and around the world for “gay liberation.”Out of that uprising, trans leaders Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson (whose pictures were carried along with those murdered in 2017) created living connections to other historic liberation movements of the time: the Black Power struggle, the Puerto Rican anti-colonial movement, the Native peoples’ uprising, the women’s movement and the upsurge against the Vietnam War.In the spirit of the example set by Rivera and Johnson, Stonewall Warriors’ four demands called for official 2017 Pride events to stop sidelining radical and revolutionary Black community participation; for Pride to officially speak out against the rash of recent trans murders; for an end to Pride’s lucrative sponsorships from companies that profit off prisons, colonial debt and desecration of Native land; and for a ban on all police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents at Pride events.Hundreds of people of trans, queer, enby, intersex, two-spirit, pansexual, disabled, ace, bisexual and other identities answered that call and turned out ready to take to the streets on June 10.Pride in protestEverywhere along the sidewalks as they assembled, the group encountered an older generation of parade-goers who welcomed them with the same sentiment: “It’s about time that Pride was a protest again!”Diva T. Williams, one of the group’s key organizers, emceed a spirited and combative march that delivered on the promise of a genuine alternative to the increasingly corporate annual Pride event.Recognizing the union locals of health care workers and teachers marching directly in front of the group, the contingent stepped off with union solidarity, chanting “Who’s got the power? Workers got the power!” and “Donald Trump, we say No! Union bustings got to go!”Armed with militant determination to return Pride to its roots as a political force for advancing struggles of the most marginalized, Williams and others led the crowd in chants calling for an end to solitary confinement for incarcerated trans people, housing for LGBTQ youth and an end to both the deportations of immigrant Black and Brown people and the murders of trans women of color.As the train of protest wound its way through Boston streets, the marchers encouraged spectators to consider that the logo-branded trinkets handed out by the banks and corporations represented oil money, violations of Native sovereignty and prisons for profit — not Pride.“Put it in the trash!” marchers urged spectators. Cheers erupted when a parade-watcher threw her Bank of America plastic fan in a garbage can.Making its final turn onto Government Plaza, the loud, proud contingent boomed a hearty, sustained chorus of “The people, united, will never be defeated!” and “Long live the spirit of the Stonewall Rebellion!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

For a free, independent and democratic Afghanistan

first_img Organisation to go further Receive email alerts AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says Afghan organizations and Reporters Without Borders call for a clear commitment from Bonn conference to support freedom of expression and information. News RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Help by sharing this information March 11, 2021 Find out more May 3, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Follow the news on Afghanistan A decade after the removal of the Taliban government, journalists’ unions and organizations that support open media in Afghanistan, together with Reporters Without Borders, call on the Kabul government and international diplomats to give a clear commitment to freedom of speech and information, as delegates prepare for the second international conference on the country’s future in Bonn next month. Afghanistan has never had more news outlets, with 200 print media, 44 television stations, 141 radio stations and at least eight news agencies.On the other hand, in the past decade it has witnessed growing violence against news organizations and journalists.Unions and organizations that support open media, and Reporters Without Borders, recorded hundreds of cases of such violence between 2001 and 2011. The largest number – 85 – took place in 2009, most of them in the provinces of Kabul, Herat and Helmand.Some of provinces in the south and east of the country are no-go areas for journalists since they are controlled by the Taliban who restrict journalistic activities.We believe, and the experience of the past 10 years has proved, that without a free media and without a climate in which journalists can carry out their work in safety, we cannot protect peace, security and freedom.Never before in Afghanistan’s history have its people had so much free access to information provided by Afghans for Afghans. However, these gains are under daily threat.Today, the enemies of free speech among the senior ranks of the government in most parts of the country want to abolish this constitutional right that was won by the blood of the people. A lack of transparency in peace efforts, secret talks with super powers and the concealment of their outcome from the people raise the worrying prospect of a future where democracy and freedom, the cornerstones of permanent peace, are sacrificed for short-term gains based on deals reached behind closed doors.News organizations are under serious threat, not only from the Taliban who are about to regain power as a result of strategic mistakes by the international military forces and the corruption and incompetence of the government, but also from local and national government officials and some Islamist clerics with ties to the government.The silence of President Hamid Karzai on the actions of the authorities and organizations that violate freedom of speech and information is a cause of concern.This is particularly true since Karzai would rather heed the views and advice of fundamentalists and those who do not believe in freedom of speech and information than to listen to journalists’ unions and media organizations.This leads us to believe that the muzzling of the free press that we see in Afghanistan is part of a plan to prepare for the return to power of the Taliban.The organizations that want a free and diverse media and Reporters Without Borders believe that peace and coexistence will be achieved only with the full participation of society. In the past decade, bureaucratic decisions and efforts have been carried out in defiance of the people as a result of restrictions on media freedom.How can corruption, growing poverty, prostitution and bribery be effectively combated without media organizations to keep the people informed?Censorship and self-censorship imposed by the Taliban, warlords, drug traffickers and government institutions have led to the present state of affairs.In the past 10 years, the independent media have not succeeded in bringing about any change in the system. It would have been more effective and less costly to have given the media the chance to campaign against corruption, the power of the warlords and drug trafficking and for the rule of law, reform of the judicial system and good governance. It is still not too late.The use of violence and illegal restrictions, as well as the constant threat of being branded as heretics, have been the main weapons used against journalists in recent times. As organizations that support journalists and the media in Afghanistan, we urge the authorities to put an end to the practice of harassing and discriminating against journalists on the basis of religious belief or racial or tribal affiliation.In the past decade, Afghan journalists have paid a high price for their activities. Sixteen have been killed and so far no-one has been brought to justice in any of these cases.The killers of Zakia Zaki, the owner of the radio station Radio Peace, BBC reporter Abdul Samad Rohani, who also worked for the Afghan news agency Pajhwok, and Jawed Ahmad, a freelance journalist who worked for the Canadian network CTV, have not been indentified and punished.The failure of the Afghan police and judicial authorities to arrest and punish those responsible for these murders casts doubt on the Kabul government’s ability to respect the rule of law.Sultan Muhammad Munadi and Ahmad Omid Khpalwak were killed by international forces. Although the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force admitted responsibility for Khpalwak’s death, the British military and the Afghan interior ministry have not disclosed the results of their criminal investigation into the killing of Munadi. He was shot dead during an attempt to rescue him and a British journalist from Taliban forces who were holding them hostage. Safeguarding the lives of journalists is the responsibility of both sides in any conflict.Violence against journalists, particularly women, has been encouraged by the failure to prosecute those responsible. In recent years, women journalists have become increasingly the target of threats from various organizations, particularly the Taliban.In the towns of Kunduz and Ghazni, the Taliban have threatened women journalists and driven female-owned media organizations out of business. In Kabul, security forces have on many occasions beaten women journalists carrying out their professional activities. Many have been forced to quit their jobs because of social pressure and fears for their safety.Violence against journalists is carried out in many cases by religious groups that have strong support among Afghan authorities. The Council of Religious Scholars, for example, has blamed journalists and media for the violence rather than the Taliban, terrorists, warlords and drug traffickers.Some provincial officials threaten media organizations daily. Instead of protecting journalists, security forces detain them without authority and accuse them of spying.Some warlords and countries such as Pakistan and Iran, whose control of some media organizations allows them to interfere in Afghanistan’s internal affairs, are increasingly relaying Taliban propaganda. Free media organizations, faced with the Taliban and the actions of corrupt government officials, are surrounded and forced into silence.The constitution and media law guarantee freedom of the press but the legislation is not implemented for political reasons. The law should be completed and implemented without delay. Government-owned media organizations should be safe from government interference and their independence observed. Government authorities should respect the right to freedom of information. Drafting a law facilitating access to information should be a priority for the government.In the past decade, Afghanistan has failed to grasp historic opportunities. Some analysts have predicted Afghanistan’s defeat. Fighting is taking place not only on the front line and in zones of conflict. The Afghan people wage a daily battle for peace and against war and they have the right to be informed.Conference organisers and participants, as well as the international community, should explicitly undertake to protect the freedom, democracy and rights of the people of Afghanistan.Freedom of speech, the emancipation of women and respect for human rights are the main challenges in Afghanistan. We must bear in mind that peace cannot be restored without freedom and democracy.

City Attorney Mike Feuer and Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Krekorian have requested a 75-day extension for the public to comment on the Federal Aviation Administration’s environmental review of the proposal.“This Burbank Airport project is a big deal, and San Fernando Valley residents deserve a full opportunity to weigh in with their views,”’ Feuer said. “That’s why I’m calling on the FAA to significantly extend the public comment period. As we’ve seen with the FAA’s changes to Burbank Airport flight patterns, what happens at that airport has a huge, daily impact on Valley residents’ quality of life.”The FAA will normally grant a 15-day extension where a commenting agency such as the city requests more time to review an environmental report, Feuer said.“The people of the San Fernando Valley are already suffering significant environmental impacts from the Hollywood Burbank Airport, including intensification of aircraft noise, air pollution. and ground traffic,” Krekorian said.“The replacement terminal, if built, could increase those impacts,” he said. “This draft environmental impact statement is almost 3,000 pages long and this project will impact the people of my district and the rest of the east San Fernando Valley for generations to come.”The Hollywood Burbank Airport Commission consists of nine members from Pasadena, Glendale, and Burbank. Pasadena’s three representatives on the board are former Pasadena City College Trustee Ross Selvidge and Pasadena City Council members John Kennedy and Steve Madison.In a letter to the FAA, Feuer and Krekorian said extra time should be afforded to ensure full public participation in the environmental review of the Burbank replacement terminal project.The environmental report addresses a number of potential effects concerning a project that directly affects the lives of the city’s residents and businesses in direct proximity to the project.

Economy Moving Closer to Normal

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago After half a year of failed predictions and slow starts, the U.S. economy actually appears to be closing in on normal, at least according to Freddie Mac.Freddie Mac’s latest Economic and Housing Market Outlook shows that the agency expects to see the U.S. housing market driven once again by fundamentals—jobs, household formations, and affordability—rather than economic upheaval.Freddie Mac is basing its optimism on a recent report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis that shows that the GDP grew at a rate of 4.0 percent in the second quarter, leading economists at the company to calculate that the economy will grow an average of 3.3 percent in 2015.Household formations should increase, too. The Census Bureau reported that over the past four quarters, net household formations totaled only 458,000, and not the 1.2 to 1.3 million per year predicted by the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard.According to Freddie Mac, slow household formation has resulted in a rise in the number of persons per household—which has increased by 2.6 percent since 2005, to 2.76 persons per household, on average. If persons-per-household had held steady at over that period, there would be an additional 3 million households today, the report states.Nevertheless, Freddie Mac expects household formations to pick up, and for housing starts to increase 28 percent (to 1.3 million starts) in 2015. If this happens, the report states, long-term interest rates will likely creep up, with 30-year fixed-rate mortgages reaching about 5 percent at the end of 2015. A recovering housing sector will sustain the rally in homebuilding despite likely increases in long-term interest rates, according to the report.The biggest source of optimism is the U.S. labor market. After several years of sluggishness, the U.S. has added 230,000 net new jobs on average for the first seven months of this year, Freddie Mac reported.”The economic growth and labor market gains we saw in the second quarter of this year are projected to continue, strengthening household formations and the housing sector,” said Frank Nothaft, VP and chief economist.Nothaft also expects construction activity to further accelerate the labor markets and, thereby, fuel even more household formations and more housing demand. The result, he said, is an economy that is gradually heading back to the black.

At the outset, the Court, in its order, noted that the prayer made in the writ petition couldn’t be said to be in public interest “because transfer of convict from one jail to another always remains on the request of the convict.” Noting that, a direction to transfer all women convicts from one jail to another cannot be given without their request to this effect, the Bench of Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari and Justice Rohit Ranjan Agarwal said, “(Whenever) a convict has difficulty to remain in a particular jail, (he/she could) seek transfer to other jail after giving cogent reasons and in those circumstances, the State is competent to transfer a convict from one jail to another.” Taking into consideration the above-mentioned procedure, the plea was said to be not maintainable for the cause “Present writ petition is not maintainable for the cause and cannot be without requests of the women convicts for their transfer, thus, the writ petition is dismissed”, said the Court. However, the Court granted the liberty to an individual woman convict to make a request for transfer from one jail to another, after giving cogent reasons. The Court also said that in that case (if a woman convict makes such a request) the government authority in the State of U.P. would consider the application appropriately. The Court also directed that if the state finds substance in the request, it “would transfer the woman convict from the Central Jail, Naini to the District Jail at Sonebhadra or Mirzapur.” Case title – Marry Puncha (Sheeb Jose) v.
