Resistance in response to firing of Tom Cat workers

first_imgTom Cat Bakery picket line.New York City – The racist, anti-worker bosses at Tom Cat Bakery finally carried out the wishes of the repressive state on April 21 and fired over 30 workers who failed to show papers following an I-9 audit by the Department of Homeland Security in March. This is the first time in 11 years that an employer in New York City has collaborated with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This escalation in state violence, however, was met with resistance.On the morning of April 21, four community members and activists chained themselves to the delivery trucks at Tom Cat Bakery, stalling production for over an hour. Nearly 200 activists then met up to picket the bakery and if necessary intervene in any ICE raids. Several of the workers under threat spoke at the protest and shared their stories.  Many of them had worked at the factory for a long time before the audit, upwards of 16 years, and have deep ties to the community.The deportations, and now firings, of immigrants are generating massive political energy in the migrant communities, which may culminate in a May Day general strike, the likes of which haven’t been seen since 2006. The Tom Cat workers, shortly after the firings, confirmed that they will participate in this year’s May Day strike in New York City.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

‘Healthcare Not Wealthcare!’: Disability rights activists arrested

first_imgPeople with disabilities, caregivers and friends protest life-threatening health care cuts outside the U.S. Senate Office on June 22.“Healthcare not Wealthcare” was a sign left behind at the die-in protest on June 22 inside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office in Washington, D.C., by members of ADAPT, a disability rights organization.  The group was protesting the Republicans’ “rewrite” of the Affordable Care Act.Over 60 ADAPT members came from across the country to fight for their freedom. If the proposed $834 billion cut in Medicaid occurs, many people who are disabled and elderly will die or be warehoused in institutions.Some 43 activists were arrested during the protest. U.S. Capitol Police picked them up off their wheelchairs, dumped some people unceremoniously on the ground, and then carted them outside to be arrested.In front of McConnell’s office, five Capitol police lifted 29-year-old Stephanie Woodward off her wheelchair.  She didn’t go quietly, but shouted, “No cuts to Medicaid!” as she was carried outside. Woodward is an ADAPT member from Rochester, N.Y.“I was born with spina bifida in 1988,” Woodward told the Huffington Post.  “It wasn’t easy for my folks, my mother, a hairdresser, and my father, an electrician, to get me the health care and multiple surgeries I needed.”  She has since graduated from law school. Now she has private insurance, but says, “Without Medicaid, I would not be here.” (June 23)Save Medicaid!The same article tells of ADAPT member Laura Halvorson, a 33-year-old Dallas native, who has muscular dystrophy and reluctantly decided not to resist when Capitol police told her to move along. Resisting could have damaged the breathing apparatus attached to her chair, creating  a life-threatening situation.Halvorson requires help with chores like bathing and cooking, so she is trying to obtain a personal care attendant through a Medicaid waiver  program. If she can’t get one, she would be forced to live in an institution at twice the cost of home care, a point stressed by protesters.Speaking on the June 23 MSNBC show “The Last Word,” Karen Clay characterized this ACA “rewrite” as a decimation: “I cried watching the police carry the disabled activists. What kind of country are we? I was concerned for the safety of the people the police were handling. You need training to know how to handle people who ride in chairs. Their muscles have atrophied and their bones are not used to carrying weight.”In the interview, Clay talked about her son, Mike Phillips, who has spinal muscular atrophy, is confined to bed, and manipulates a computer to communicate. With a Medicaid waiver he has a personal care assistant who takes him to the movies, Starbucks or out to dinner with friends. “I’m not Ryan Gosling” he quipped, “but I live a good life.”Medicaid provides essential life support. The program pays home care attendants who provide services needed for daily living, like cooking,  bathing and dressing for work. It enables people with disabilities to have access to durable goods, such as wheelchairs and oxygen tanks, and to live as normal a life as possible in the community, to work and to raise families.  These things would be impossible without the assistance and necessities jeopardized by this inhumane bill.To add insult to injury, the funds slashed from Medicaid would be used to subsidize tax cuts for the wealthy 1% —  “wealthcare” as the protesters claim. Filling in the gaps would be left to the states; many won’t do it or do not have the money to do so.The bill was drafted in secret. McConnell has been planning to rush the bill through before the Senate’s July 4 recess. (See editorial, page 10.)But nobody is waiting to see how the Senate votes. Spontaneous protests are popping up opposing the bill. Planned Parenthood, which would be defunded under the bill, called a demonstration for June 27. Their email read, “This is not a drill. We’re in the fight for our lives.”ADAPT’s activismADAPT members are fighting hard because their lives and freedom depend on it. They organized actions at senators’ offices across the country on June 19, 20 and 21, in addition to the Washington protest which made news, even abroad.Mike Oxford, an ADAPT organizer in Kansas, telling this writer of the strong bond that exists between people with disabilities and their caregiver workers, stressed that the organization campaigns for higher wages for them. They succeeded in Kansas where their hourly pay was raised to $10.ADAPT got its start in Denver in July 1978, fighting for the right to ride city buses. Then, 25 activists argued that as taxpayers they had a right to travel on the local buses they paid for. Carrying placards which read, “Taxation without Transportation,” they circled the buses and sat down for three days, preventing traffic from moving. At night, they got off their wheelchairs and lay down in the street to sleep.It took five years and more demonstrations, but ADAPT finally got wheelchair-accessible buses. They did it with humor; their banner read “[We want] to go boldly where everybody else has gone before.” That protest sparked similar demonstrations across the country.Mary P. Kaessinger is a wheelchair user.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

House Passes a Clean Energy Bill

first_img SHARE SHARE By NAFB News Service – Sep 27, 2020 The House of Representatives passed a broad bill that intends to help the U.S. boost energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in an effort to combat climate change. The Hill says the chamber passed the 900-page Clean Energy and Jobs Innovation Act by a 220-185 vote.The legislation intends to create research and development programs for different forms of energy, including solar, wind, advanced geothermal energy, and hydroelectric power, as well as new ways to lower pollution from fossil fuel production. The bill also establishes more rigorous building codes and bolsters energy efficiency requirements and weatherization programs.A similar energy innovation bill was introduced in the Senate earlier this year but seemed to stall until recently. The Senate bill is moving again after lawmakers agreed on an amendment seeking to phase down the use of a type of greenhouse gas.A senior House Democratic aide tells The Hill that if the Senate can pass its own bill, the chambers can go to conference to settle any disagreements. While Democrats support the bill, Republicans point out that it will cost over $135 billion. Three House GOP members says the bill is “full of government mandates that will make Americans pay more money for everything from the vehicles they drive to heating and cooling their homes.”Growth Energy is happy about the inclusion of the Renewable Fuel Standard Integrity Act contained in the clean energy legislation. The act was authored by House Ag Committee Chair Collin Peterson, along with representatives from other ag states like South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, and Kansas.It is designed to bring much-needed transparency to the Environmental Protection Agency’s secretive small refinery exemption process and ensure refiners meet biofuel blending requirements.“After years of EPA mismanagement, the legislation will finally give farmers and biofuel producers a long-overdue peek at EPA’s secretive and destructive process,” says Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor.The National Biodiesel Board is also pleased that the act is included in the House clean energy bill. The provision would set a June 1 deadline for annual small refinery exemption petitions, ensuring they’ll be accounted for in the RFS calculations. Also, the bill would require public disclosure of the volumes of biofuels potentially impacted by the petition, along with the name of the petitioner.Kurt Kovarik, NBB VP of Federal Affairs, says, “This is a commonsense step to ensure that RFS biomass-based diesel volumes are fully met and prevent a recurrence of the demand destruction for biodiesel that we’ve seen for the last seven years.” Facebook Twitter Previous articleHoosier Ag This Week – The Week in Review Podcast for September 26thNext articleChina Officials Downplay Fears of Grain Shortages NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter House Passes a Clean Energy Bill Home Indiana Agriculture News House Passes a Clean Energy Billlast_img read more

Main opposition daily wiped out by heavy fines

first_imgNews News Receive email alerts June 8, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Azerbaijan November 17, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Main opposition daily wiped out by heavy fines AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information to go further News April 9, 2021 Find out morecenter_img “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Reporters Without Borders today condemned the action of Azerbaijan’s authorities yesterday in freezing the assets of the main opposition daily, Yeni Musavat, thereby preventing it from publishing. The decision was taken on the grounds that the newspaper failed to pay fines and damages totalling some 125,000 euros.The newspaper’s closure is “the logical outcome of the judicial harassment to which it has been subjected,” the organisation said. “It has been strangled by the exorbitant size of the fines, and its disappearance will have dire consequences for diversity of news and information in Azerbaijan.”The newspaper’s financial difficulties began in late 2003 after it was convicted in six legal actions. Among those who sued the newspaper were Azerbaijan’s ambassador to Turkey, Mamed Aliev, the supreme court president’s brother, Rashid Hasanov, and defence minister Safar Abiyev.At the same time, editor Rauf Arifoglu (who is also vice-president of the opposition party Musavat), has been detained for more than a year. A Baku court on 22 October sentenced him to five years in prison for “disturbing the peace and “refusing to comply” with instructions from the authorities. His lawyer, Samed Panahov, said no evidence was brought against Arifoglu during the trial, which was marred by irregularities.
