Mumia Abu-JamalPhiladelphia — United around the goal “Mumia, Free in 4!” — meaning his release in four years — dedicated activists from several U.S. cities, France and Germany gathered at Temple University on Jan. 26 for a conference organized by Educators for Mumia Abu-Jamal.The event laid out a historical and political perspective on why now is the time to raise a campaign around Abu-Jamal, who in December 2011 was released into general population at Pennsylvania’s SCI Mahanoy. This comes after his nearly 30 years in solitary confinement on death row. Demands for his freedom will also link Abu-Jamal’s case to the growing fight to end mass incarceration.Dr. Anthony Monteiro, a professor of African-American Studies at Temple University, called for “a strategic plan to free Mumia.”Monteiro stated that Abu-Jamal and other political prisoners have not been isolated in prison for decades just because “we did not fight to free them. We must not underestimate that the forces we fight also have a strategic plan to keep our leaders isolated from the people to prevent movements against imperialism and repression.”Monteiro noted that while over 2.5 million people are imprisoned today, the ruling class plans to build prisons for millions more. “The 1% relies on the state to uphold an economic system they know will never recover from its current crisis.”Stressing solidarity, Abu-Jamal’s son, Jamal Hart, who was himself imprisoned for 15 years, cautioned people not to get caught up with things that divide us, but focus instead on the direction we all want to go. “The movement to free my father is global, but it must also stay connected with the family.” Hart shared a simple message sent to him by his father on Jan. 21 that read, “I want to go home!”Other speakers, including Ramona Africa of the MOVE organization and Johanna Fernandez of EMAJ, addressed the need for the campaign to get information to young people and to popularize Abu-Jamal as a freedom fighter imprisoned longer than most youth coming into struggles today have been alive.Noelle Hanrahan, with Prison Radio, urged people to join in efforts to fill theaters for the release of the new documentary, “Long Distance Revolutionary — A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal.” It opens in theaters across the U.S., starting Feb. 1 in New York. This film, produced by Street Legal Cinema in association with Prison Radio, focuses on Mumia’s dramatic career as a journalist, revolutionary and important voice during a time of increased mass incarceration, escalating war and impoverishment of an entire generation of young people. For information see www.mumia-themovie.com.Attorneys for Abu-Jamal provided legal updates and discussed plans to launch a media campaign to “mainstream Mumia” as a counter to decades of the racist media coverage of his case. Judith Ritter, with the Legal Defense Fund, stated, “Mumia himself is the strongest weapon we have for people to know what kind of man he is.”An international petition campaign was proposed to stress Abu-Jamal’s innocence and call on the U.S. Department of Justice to recommend that the governor of Pennsylvania immediately vacate his sentence.Young activists Autumn Marie, Jamila Wilson and Domingo Estevez led a lively discussion, encouraging the sharing of ways to popularize Abu-Jamal’s case. Progressive hip-hop performers, including Immortal Technique and M-1 of Dead Prez, took part directly or by phone-in.A highlight was a call from Mumia himself, who urged those present to “build something stronger and more powerful than ever before.” nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Dec. 16 — The general strike in France has lasted 12 days as of today. Transportation is barely hanging on, with just 10 to 30 percent of scheduled trains running. Cars and buses spend hours in traffic jams. Bicycle lanes are jam-packed. Cafés, restaurants, hotels and stores report losing major amounts of year-end holiday business.French workers march in the streets of Draguignan, Dec. 10, to say no to pension reform. (Photo: A. Dequidt)Traffic jams in the region that includes Paris were twice as long today as they are at their worst when mass transit is running normally.The public reaction to the strike is surprising. Despite the tremendous inconvenience, a strong majority supports the unions’ objections to the government’s plan to impose major pension cuts. Many believe the government left the workers no choice, pushing them out on strike. In addition, the government minister in charge of its retirement project was forced to resign today because of “financial improprieties.”The four federations inside the General Confederation of Labor (CGT) — transportation, railroad workers, chemical industry, and mines and energy — just issued a public warning to the government. “It has a week to announce the withdrawal of its proposal and to relaunch real negotiations to improve the current retirement system.” The strike will continue while the CGT waits.The French Democratic Labor Confederation (CFDT), which is the largest labor confederation in the private sector, had firmly supported the way the government proposed restructuring the retirement system. Yet what it can’t support are government plans to make workers stay on the job years longer to get a full pension. So on Dec. 11 the CFDT announced it would fully participate in the next national protest march on Dec. 17 and in the general strike.On Dec. 11, all the left-wing parties in France, some of which are radical more in name than practice, held an open meeting for the first time in 29 years. Attendees included the Communist Party of France (PCF), which called the meeting; France Unbowed (France insoumise); Workers Struggle (LO); the New Anti-capitalist Party; the Socialist Party; and the Greens. The union confederations CGT and SUD were also present. The meeting was widely covered by the French press. Fabien Roussel, the leader of the PCF, summed up the meeting: “There was unanimity against the government reform. We are asking for its proposal to be withdrawn. We are all united on this point and call for a mobilization for Dec. 17.” (Le Monde, Dec. 11-12)President Emmanuel Macron and Prime Minister Édouard Philippe claim that since Macron’s campaign promised “reforms,” and the people voted to elect him, that means the people gave him a mandate to impose these changes on the retirement system. French workers ask why the government, which had participated in two years of discussions, did not propose a concrete plan regarding the pensions until the massive Dec. 5 national demonstration and another six days of a general strike.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

We’re much cooler for Saturday into Sunday, but we have no rain in the forecast Saturday through Tuesday.”Martin’s forecast does call for potential scattered showers on Wednesday.“I think most of us will be looking at a few hundredths of an inch to maybe 3 or 4 tenths maximum. But keep an eye out for that on Wednesday. It will hit the northern part of the state in the morning, southern part of the state in the evening. The focal point really seems to be more Michigan and Ohio.”After that, temperatures really start to climb Thursday, Friday, and Saturday next week.“I think we’ve got a heatwave that continues right on through most of the following week as well. We don’t see any significant frontal complexes coming through in that time, so no well-organized system, but this past week you saw it- when you get the heat and humidity in over Indiana, you can fire off pop up showers and thunderstorms almost at will,” says Martin.“I don’t think it’ll be as frequent as what we saw this past week but I also can’t rule out some on again off again moisture in there, especially in that next Monday (8th), Tuesday (9th), Wednesday (10th) period. That window could be rather unsettled.” SHARE Previous articleBrazil’s Ag Exports to China are BoomingNext articleA Dry Weekend in Store for Indiana on the HAT Friday Morning Podcast Eric Pfeiffer

Monassa was affiliated to the Brazilian Press Association (ABI).“This is an especially cowardly and repugnant murder,” the press freedom organisation said. “It also highlights the incredible contempt in which politicians sometimes hold the local press. We support the ABI’s appeal to Rio de Janeiro state governor Rosinha Garotinho for a thorough investigation to establish the exact circumstances of this murder and ensure that it does not go unpunished.”The attack took place when Monassa was on a central square in the town of Guapirimim having a argument with a close relative of Osvaldo Vivas, a municipal councillor he had accused of questionable administrative practices. A martial arts black belt, Vivas himself then intervened and began hitting Monassa until he collapsed. He was rushed to the intensive care unit of a nearby hospital where he died of his injuries.Monassa began his career in journalism working for the Rio de Janeiro communist daily Imprensa Popular. He later became a labour inspector and ran a shop in Guapirimim, but continued to write for magazines and websites. He was a constant critic of the municipal government, accusing it of lacking in transparency and breaking promises. His views were shared by many other residents. About 1,000 people blocked a road in show of protest against the local authorities earlier this year. Monassa would have turned 74 on 5 November.In a letter to Rio de Janeiro’s governor, ABI president Maurício Azêdo voiced concern that “the murder will be covered up and Ajuricaba Monassa’s killers will remain unpunished.”

Petitioner in person, advocate Shashwat Anand appeared before the Bench comprising of Justices NV Ramana, SK Kaul and BR Gavai and apprised them of his plea which also included a challenge to the validity of the PM CARES fund. Expressing their displeasure at the same, the Bench threatened to impose a fine on the petitioner if he did not withdraw the plea. “The petition has a political colour. Either you withdraw it or we will impose a fine”, warned Justice Ramana as the hearing lasted for barely a minute.The petitioners, Shashwat Anand, Ankur Azad and Faiz Ahmad, 3 advocates and Sagar, a law student from Allahabad, have expressed their grave concerns over the manner in which India is attempting to fight the pandemic, especially with regard to the low rate of testing. To buttress this submission, reliance has been placed on the Indian Council of Medical Research’s (ICMR) latest status report from April 7, 2020 according to which the Government is conducting merely 82 tests per Million people across the country.”What is the most worrying is that the reported confirmed COVID-19 cases, for sure, could be a gross underestimate as the testing rate in India is amongst the lowest in the world. The shocking spike in the number of corona infected cases within a matter of days, shows that it may only be the tip of the iceberg and we’re oblivious to the real gravity of the situation.”Alluding to India’s response as “basal”, the petitioners claim that the government has not been focusing on the right details to ensure victory over the fight against COVID-19. It is suggested that instead of looking to curb community transmission, emphasis should be laid on managing and treating the virus, the first step for which would be mass testing.”India’s response to fighting this pandemic is basal. It is primarily focused on curbing community transmission, rather than managing, identifying and treating the virus infection following the mass tests which is, to put it differently, evinced by the lack of enough and mass house-to-house tests as proportional to the humongous and densely packed population of India.”Reiterating that while measures such as social distancing and the nationwide lockdown are an attempt to curb mass transmission, the petitioners caution that such exercises would be futile if mass testing is not conducted. “Combating COVID-19 would become like fighting a fire blindfolded.”Next Story

Research commissioned by the Industrial Society Learning and Development,part of outsourcing specialist Capita, asked 850 full-time and part-timeworkers what they thought about their immediate bosses’ management abilities. While 59 per cent rated their general line management skills positively,three out of five felt they were getting insufficient help with workplacestress. One in four (26 per cent) of full-time workers and almost one in five (19per cent) of part timers described their manager’s stress management skills as‘poor’ or ‘very poor’. According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, stress isthe most common cause of long-term absence, with stress-related sick dayscosting British industry an estimated £7.1m a week. Younger people, said the study, generally had a more positive outlook thanthose in their later working years. And the older the employee, the lessgenerally well managed they thought they were.
