Women however, were more likely to include this as New Year’s resolution, at 9% compared to 4% of men. Younger age groups were also more likely to make volunteering or charity work a resolution, with 9% of 18-24 year olds including it, and 8% of 25-34 year olds. Least likely were 35-44 year olds and those aged 55+, both at 5%.Top, by a wide margin, and for all age groups, were losing weight at 44%, followed by more exercise / increasing fitness, saving more money, and improving diet. 27% however said they had never made a New Year’s resolution, and only 25% of these made one last year. 27% overall said they would be making them for 2020.

Milwaukee community protests killer cops

first_imgPhoto: Occupy RiverwestMilwaukee — A crowd of labor, community and student supporters of the Dontre Hamilton family and other victims of police killings and other brutality packed Red Arrow Park in Milwaukee on Sept. 30 to demand justice. The action marked five months since Milwaukee cop Christopher Manney shot Hamilton 14 times at the park, killing him instantly.Dontre Hamilton’s family members and those of others killed by the police and vigilantes spoke at the protest. One was Craig Stingley, father of 16-year-old African-American Corey Stingley, who was murdered by white vigilantes in December 2012 in West Allis, Wis.To date, Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm refuses to charge Manney with any crime whatsoever despite repeated demands he do so by the Hamilton family and numerous community supporters. The response of Milwaukee’s police chief, Ed Flynn, has been to send cops to attack and menace protesters demanding justice. On more than one occasion, the Democratic mayor, Tom Barrett, has refused to meet with the Hamilton family. This has provoked the community response, a series of protests, including taking street actions such as briefly shutting down highway ramps, packing Fire and Police Commission meetings and more.The Coalition For Justice, sponsor of the Sept. 30 protest, released a statement on its Facebook page immediately following the action:“Thank you to everyone who came to stand with us for justice for, and in honor of, Dontre Hamilton. Everyone who has marched with us, sang with us, made his name ring through Milwaukee with us, all of our endorsers, the Overpass Light Brigade and everyone who helped carry the light, the folks at the All Peoples Church, and especially the other families who have lost their loved ones at the hands of police officers and white vigilantes — we honestly cannot thank you enough for standing with us tonight. We stand with you and will continue to stand for justice until we win.”To join the protest, call Milwaukee DA John Chisholm’s office to demand Christopher Manney be charged in the killing of Dontre Hamilton: 414-278-4646 and/or email: [email protected] updates and information, see facebook.com/justicefordontre and wibailoutpeople.org.  ‬FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Jim Miller, revolutionary worker & organizer

first_imgJames E. MillerJames E. Miller fought for socialism and working people all over the world. He was just 65 when he died on April 14.Jim grew up in Madison, Wis., and attended the University of Wisconsin during the late 1960s. The Black liberation struggle was surging forward and so was the movement against the Vietnam War.Like Berkeley in California, Madison and its big campus became a political center. Police attacked University of Wisconsin students demonstrating against Dow Chemical, which made millions supplying the Pentagon with napalm that burned people alive. Black student athletes at UW led struggles against racism.Tens of thousands of young people across the United States wanted to make a revolution within what Che Guevara called “the belly of the beast.” Jim Miller was one of them.He was attracted to Marxist theory and read the works of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Mao, Plekhanov and Trotsky. Above all, Jim Miller was a fighter.He joined the Milwaukee branch of Workers World Party in 1967 and became chair of Milwaukee’s chapter of Youth Against War and Fascism. YAWF contingents in anti-war demonstrations proudly carried the flag of Vietnam’s National Liberation Front.YAWF’s number one job was to fight racism. YAWF members joined Father James Groppi and the NAACP Youth Council in marching inside the old Milwaukee Auditorium in 1968 to disrupt presidential candidate George Wallace’s hate rally. Wallace was an Alabama governor and one of the U.S.’s top racists.Fighting racism meant defending Black Panther Party members Booker T. Collins Jr., Jesse Lee White and Earl W. Leverette. They were framed on ridiculous charges of firing a shotgun at a Milwaukee cop through the back side window of a Volkswagen Beetle!Every Sunday, YAWF members joined scores of other militants in picketing the House of Detention, where the “Milwaukee 3” were held. Sheriff’s deputies pointed their weapons at them.Milwaukee police have a bloody history of murder and brutality. During the single month of December in 1974, cops killed four Black people, including the unarmed 16-year-old Jerry Brookshire.Milwaukee Police Chief Harold Brier repeatedly denounced YAWF in 1968 for daring to leaflet high school students. Also in 1968, YAWF organized a bus to go to Chicago to protest Mayor Daley’s cops clubbing demonstrators at the Democratic Convention.“Red Squad” police officers would regularly park their vehicle in front of the local Workers World Party and YAWF headquarters at 150 East Juneau. In 1971, Milwaukee police attacked a demonstration protesting the Attica prison massacre. They arrested three YAWF members: Benita Orozco, Jim Miller and Bill Colangelo.A few months later, “Red Squad” cops attempted to storm the local party headquarters. They were beaten back but several comrades were arrested.These cops were furious that YAWF had helped organize an 800-person strong demonstration that night against George Wallace and Defense Secretary Melvin Laird, who had spoken at two adjoining meetings.The most serious charges were against Comrade Benita Orozco, who was facing years in jail for allegedly beating police at the Attica protest.Jim Miller became the heart and soul of her defense, doing much of the tedious and painstaking work required by a legal defense. Judge Hugh O’Connell almost had conniptions when a jury acquitted Benita Orozco.Jim also helped to defend the anti-war GIs known as the “Camp McCoy 3.” Their indictment was announced by Attorney General John Mitchell, who himself was later to be sent to prison as one of the criminals in the Watergate case of illegal interference in the 1972 presidential election.What made Jim’s diligent effort even more amazing was that he was working the nightshift at a bakery.Union leader and fatherJim Miller was greatly influenced by the older, worker revolutionaries in the Milwaukee branch of Workers World Party. These included Betsey Stergar and Al Stergar, and Shirley Plaster and Earl Plaster.These four had stood firm during the McCarthyite anti-communist witch hunt of the 1950s and became teachers for a new generation of revolutionaries.Milwaukee was one of the most segregated cities on the planet. But thousands of Black workers were employed in the city’s factories. As late as 1980, half of the African Americans employed in Milwaukee held manufacturing jobs.Jim went to work in the bakery proudly wearing a “Free Angela Davis” button on his leather jacket. He defended workers and became president of the bakery workers local union.Jim later became an American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Union organizer in Fond du Lac, Wis., before returning to work in a bakery.Bakery work helped kill Jim. Like millions of other workers, Jim Miller’s early death is probably linked to occupational causes. For years, Jim was forced to breathe in flour dust while working.But this didn’t stop Jim from enjoying life. He was a loving father to Peter and Sara Miller.And while he was a student of Marxism, Jim was also a sports fan, particularly of the Dodgers, because Dodger African-American star Jackie Robinson integrated major league baseball in Brooklyn.Long live the memory of Jim Miller, bakery worker and revolutionary!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

UNHCR urged to review decision to withdraw refugee status from Rwandan refugees

first_img Receive email alerts November 27, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders fails to understand a decision by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to urge countries that have given asylum to Rwandan refugees to withdraw their refugee status by the middle of next year on the grounds that political life in Rwanda is back to normal.“What normalization is UNCHR talking about?” Reporters Without Borders asked. “President Paul Kagame was reelected with 93 per cent of the vote in 2010 in an election in which his main opponents could not take part. One is in prison and another is in exile and escaped an assassination attempt. The Rwandan authorities do not tolerate criticism. The independent press is harassed.“Even in exile, some refugees are in danger. Three Rwandan refugee journalists were the victims of a mysterious attack in the Ugandan capital of Kampala at the end of August. Another Rwandan journalist had a similar experience in Kampala a year ago. The assailants in both cases spoke Kinyarwanda. Dozens of people, including many journalists, will be endangered if governments and UNHCR withdraw the refugee status of Rwandan refugees and make them go back to Rwanda.”A meeting of the governments of asylum countries and other relevant actors is to be held in December to organize what is to be done with Rwandan refugees. UNHCR spokesperson Fatoumata Lejeune-Kaba said the refugee agency intends to recommend cessation of refugee status for Rwandans by 30 June 2012.A Rwandan journalist who is a refugee in Europe told Reporters Without Borders: “The refugee camps continue to be the main recruiting centres of children and youths by armed groups so dismantling them is the best way to combat the reorganization of these dangerous armed groups in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. But it would be a big mistake, a grave human rights violation, to turn a blind eye to the suppression of free expression in Rwanda and to withdraw the refugee status of government opponents, journalists and human rights activists, who would risk imprisonment or murder.” Another Rwandan journalist, one who is refugee in southern Africa, said: “Lots of Rwandan refugees live in appalling conditions outside of Rwanda, above all in nearby African countries. If they don’t go back, they must have a reason. We want to return to a country where our rights and freedoms are guaranteed. But in Rwanda, you just have to be unfairly accused of ‘genocide denial’ or ‘revisionism’ and you go to jail. We cannot return to a country where arbitrary justice reigns.”Reporters Without Borders points out that two women journalists, Agnes Uwimana Nkusi and Saidath Mukakibibi, are serving sentences of 17 and seven years in jail respectively on charges of inciting civil disobedience, causing divisions and denying the 1994 genocide of the Tutsis.Every year, Reporters Without Borders registers several cases of Rwandan journalists being threatened, harassed and forced to flee the country. Around 10 have fled abroad since the start of 2010. Reporters Without Borders has approved 10 assistance grants for Rwandan journalists or their families during the same period.Cessation of refugee status would jeopardize the safety of many Rwandan journalists who have been helped by Reporters Without Borders.In a report released to mark World Refugee Day on 20 June, entitled “Forced to flee but not silenced – exile media fight on,” Reporters Without Borders included a profile of Jean-Bosco Gasasira, the Rwandan editor of the Umuvugizi.com news website, who is a refugee in Sweden. Read the report .Rwanda is ranked 169th out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. This is Africa’s third worst ranking. Only Eritrea and Sudan are below it in the index. More information on media freedom in Rwanda .

VBSS teams will board and search these vessels to determine if the vessel is hostile, said Ensign Bo Doran, the VBSS officer aboard Porter. “Training works to prepare the team mentally and physically for real-world events,” said Doran. “The VBSS teams need to train in order to develop the proficiency necessary to carry out missions effectively.”The 5th and 6th Fleet areas of operation are primarily where the VBSS team will combat trafficking and piracy.Piracy and the threat of terrorist activity impede commerce between the U.S. and its allies, said Fire Controlman 1st Class Christian A. Echeverri, a senior member of Porter’s VBSS team.“In the Mediterranean we encounter a lot of trafficking of drugs, oil and sometimes even weapons,” said Echeverri. “When we are in 5th Fleet we focus on piracy, protecting our allies’ waterways and helping vessels in distress.”VBSS teams also establish positive relationships with local militaries. These relationships improve cooperation when there are reports of pirates or other illegal activities in the area.Sailors must meet specific pre-requisites, including weapons qualifications, physical fitness standards and swimming proficiency before they join a VBSS team “Serving on the VBSS team is a tremendous responsibility but it’s a real honor and a privilege to be entrusted with such responsibility,” Doran said.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , January 20, 2012; Image: navy View post tag: sailors View post tag: Aboard View post tag: Training View post tag: USS View post tag: team View post tag: VBSS View post tag: conduct View post tag: whilelast_img read more
