Trump, el capitalismo incitan tiroteos masivos

first_imgEntre el 31 de julio y el 3 de agosto, tres terroristas hombres de raza con blanca mataron e hirieron a docenas de personas en Gilroy, California; El Paso, Texas; y Dayton, Ohio. Tres tiroteos masivos en los Estados Unidos en una semana.Los locutores de televisión expresaron que esto llevó el número de tiroteos masivos de EE.UU. en 2019 a más de 250. Wikipedia y artículos de noticias en todas partes publicaron relatos completos o parciales de los crímenes atroces.Sin embargo, en ninguna parte de los medios de las grandes empresas se mencionó la abrumadora razón de los asesinatos. No es “falta de control de armas”. No es “enfermedad mental”.Pero el hecho es que EE.UU., todas sus instituciones formales y su “estado de derecho” están profundamente arraigadas en los fundamentos de la supremacía blanca, la xenofobia, la misoginia, el nacionalismo cristiano y el odio anti-LGBTQ2S+ y un sistema de capitalismo asesino.Esos odios alentados y practicados causaron un terrible precio la semana pasada.Justo antes del asalto en Gilroy, el asesino entró en Instagram para recomendar un libro glorificado por los supremacistas blancos y solía justificar el racismo, la esclavitud y el colonialismo. Luego salió y asesinó a una persona afroamericana y dos niños latinx, de 6 y 13 años, e hirió a muchos otros.El tirador de El Paso publicó un largo manifiesto, comenzando con una declaración de que su ataque fue “una respuesta a la invasión hispana de Texas”. Luego condujo nueve horas a través de Texas (que era indiscutiblemente parte de México hasta que Estados Unidos lo robó en 1848) a la zona predominantemente latina de El Paso, justo al otro lado de la frontera con Juárez, México. Allí disparó y mató a 22 personas e hirió al menos a 26 más, muchas de ellas de gravedad.Las identificaciones de los asesinados no están completas, pero al menos seis ciudadanos mexicanos murieron, según su embajada, así como el ex conductor de autobuses urbanos de 72 años Arturo Benavides y el estudiante de secundaria de 15 años, Javier Rodríguez. También se informó que algunos de los heridos no fueron a los hospitales por temor al Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas de EE.UU. Es posible que otros, por la misma razón, no fueron a la morgue para identificar a sus seres queridos.Todavía no ha surgido información sobre la ideología del asesino de Dayton. Pero la identidad de sus víctimas expuso brutalmente sus odios. Las nueve personas a las que disparó incluyeron a su hermano de 22 años, que era un hombre trans, y seis hombres y mujeres afroamericanos que estaban cerca.Después de las masacres, Trump tuiteó los obligatorios “pensamientos y oraciones”. Pero su función real como el principal abanderado gubernamental del odio de dividir y conquistar se exhibe constantemente.En un mitin en Florida el 19 de mayo, se lamentó de que los agentes de la Patrulla Fronteriza no tengan permitido apuntar con sus armas a los in/migrantes y preguntó: “¿Cómo se detiene a estas personas?” Cuando alguien en la multitud gritó: “Dispárales” y el hizo una “broma” de eso.Nuestra pregunta es: ¿Cómo lo detenemos? ¿Y los asesinos racistas, los asesinos antisemitas y antiislámicos, los asesinos de migrantes, los que matan a personas queer y trans, los que matan en incidentes de violencia doméstica?Según un análisis de Everytown for Gun Safety, de 156 tiroteos masivos entre 2009 y 2016, el 54 por ciento estaban relacionados con violencia doméstica o familiar. (tinyurl.com/y5oyujxa). Nueve personas afroamericanas fueron asesinadas a tiros en una iglesia de Charleston, SC, en 2015. Cincuenta personas en su mayoría latinx, principalmente LGBTQ2S + fueron asesinadas en un club nocturno de Orlando, Florida, en 2016. Once personas fueron baleadas a muerte en una sinagoga de Pittsburgh en 2018. Y así sucesivamente.Este es el sistema estadounidense profundamente asesino en el que vivimos. Y esas son solo algunas de las muertes por disparos masivos aquí. Eso no cuenta los millones que EE.UU. a matado en sus guerras.¿Qué se necesitará para terminar esto?Los elementos más moderados en el Partido Demócrata son demasiado tímidos para siquiera acusar a Trump. Los progresistas sin éxito propusieron un juicio político por racismo después de sus violentos tuits contra cuatro congresistas de color.Pero la acusación por sí sola no haría justicia a las víctimas de estas horribles masacres. Las formalidades legales ahora supuestamente impiden el arresto de un presidente en funciones. ¡Pero el asesinato es asesinato! La creciente ola de resistencia contra la supremacía blanca en los Estados Unidos quiere ver a Trump ante la justicia.¿Por qué miraríamos hacia el Partido Demócrata para salvarnos? Mire la historia de los EE.UU. Nada ha movido a los partidos gobernantes en el poder, sea cual sea su nombre, excepto la movilización masiva independiente del pueblo. ¡Vamos a acusar al sistema capitalista en su lugar!La pregunta ya no es la hipotética: “¿Qué pasaría si vinieran por (llene el espacio en blanco)?” Las masacres subrayan la verdad de los manifestantes judíos anti-ICE han proclamado: “¡Nunca Más es Ahora!” Ahora es el momento de organizarse y estar en las calles para exigir que se detengan los ataques mortales contra los negros y morenos y los migrantes/inmigrantes, y la retórica llena de odio que los inspira.Cada acción en solidaridad con la gente de color y con los inmigrantes es importante, no importa cuán pequeña sea. Use un botón que diga: “Vamos contra el racismo” y fortalezca a todos los que encuentre. Organice una reunión de la ciudad o una reunión en el vecindario en apoyo de los migrantes/inmigrantes y cree un lugar para que se reúnan los antirracistas.Lleguemos a aquellos con quienes trabajamos, a miembros de nuestro sindicato y otros sindicatos, a nuestros grupos de vecindario y comunidad, y formemos coaliciones para defender a los inmigrantes en nuestras vidas.Esté atento a las acciones locales de FIRE (Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere) y únase. (Facebook.com/fightformigrants/) Siga la Red Internacional de Solidaridad de los Trabajadores (Workersolidarity.net) que está creando conciencia y colectividad de la clase trabajadora. ¡Hagamos del Día del Trabajo 2019 un día de solidaridad con los in/migrantes!Si ahora encontramos nuestra fuerza juntos, ese es otro paso para romper el control sangriento de la opresión, para terminar con los asesinatos causados por el capitalismo patriarcal, supremacista blanco. Podemos comenzar a construir el largo pero esperanzador camino hacia el socialismo revolucionario donde “la tierra se levantará sobre nuevas bases”.“La Solidaridad para Siempre” comienza con la solidaridad hoy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

At a press conference at the Moroccan National Press Union (SNPM) in Rabat, his first since this wave of interrogations began, Radi denied the allegation being made against him and said they were prompted by an Amnesty International report that the Moroccan authorities had used a spyware app called Pegasus, developed by the Israeli tech company NSO Group, to hack into his phone in 2019 and monitor his activities.

Government urged to keep promises made at Inter-American hearing in Washington on press freedom in Mexico

first_img MexicoAmericas Reporters Without Borders hails the undertakings given by the Mexican government at a hearing on press freedom in Mexico that was held by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in Washington on 18 July. The commission’s special rapporteur is to visit Mexico soon. Organisation Receive email alerts RSF_en 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Reporters Without Borders and eight human rights groups gave a news conference today about an Inter-American Commission on Human Rights hearing on the press freedom situation in Mexico that was held at their request in Washington on 18 July. They presented their findings at the hearing and submitted detailed requests to the Mexican government, which took part.“We first of all hail the active participation of Mexican civil society and NGOs in this initiative with the IACHR, which had all the more impact for being a joint one,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The support of the other groups was essential for us, and together we must ensure that our requests are acted on. This is the challenge.” The press freedom organisation continued: “The undertakings given by the Mexican government as a result of the 18 July hearing go some way to meeting our expectations. Their implementation depends, among other things, on the government keeping its promise to involve all of us organisations and the IACHR.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The future of press freedom in Mexico depends on the journalists and the media themselves, and their ability to unite in the face of the physical violence targeted against them. Furthermore, we are aware that the fight for press freedom in Mexico is also closely linked to the fight against what endangers it – organised crime.”The eight human rights groups which, together with Reporters Without Borders, presented a joint report to the IACHR were the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), the National Centre for Social Communication (Cencos), Article 19, Freedom of Information in Mexico, the Manuel Buendía Foundation, the National Union of Press Reporters, the Mexican Network for Protecting Journalists and Communication Media and the Transparency Collective.Among other things, they called for increased resources for the Special Federal Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes against Journalists (Fiscalía Especial para la Atención de Delitos Cometidos contra Periodistas – FEADP), which was created on 15 February 2006, and for a proper follow-up in the investigations into 11 recent cases of murders or disappearances of journalists. They also insisted on the need for Mexico’s legislation to be adapted to international standards on electronic and community media.At the end of the hearing, the Mexican government undertook to:-take all necessary measures to shed light on murders, disappearances and physical violence against journalists, and to study the possibility of reinforcing the prerogatives of the FEADP and the handling of this kind of case at the federal level;-report to the IACHR in the next few months on the progress made in these investigations;-guarantee broad participation by specialised organisations in following up on the investigations;- accept the IACHR’s support in the drafting of a new law on the electronic media;-work to promote recognition of community media in this law, in accordance with international standards.The IACHR requested a full report on the most serious cases from the Mexican government, which agreed in principle to an official visit by the commission’s Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression.Mexico has become the western hemisphere’s deadliest country for the press, with a total of 32 journalists murdered and seven disappeared since 2000. With nine journalists murdered in 2006, it ranked second only to Iraq worldwide. Two journalists have been killed since the start of this year – Televisa’s correspondent in Acapulco, Amado Ramírez, who was gunned down on 6 April, and reporter Saúl Martínez Ortega of the Diario de Agua Prieta newspaper, who was found dead six days later in the state of Sonora. Three others have disappeared – Rodolfo Ricón Taracena, the editor of the regional daily Tabasco Hoy, missing since 20 January, and Gamaliel López and Gerardo Paredes of TV Azteca Noroeste, who went missing on 10 May in Monterrey.Aside from the impunity surrounding these murders and the many cases of threats and attacks on journalists and news media, press freedom is also restricted, especially at the local level, by a high degree of self-censorship, the threat of the withdrawal of state advertising and obstacles to the functioning of community media. to go further May 5, 2021 Find out more July 24, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government urged to keep promises made at Inter-American hearing in Washington on press freedom in Mexico MexicoAmericas April 28, 2021 Find out more News News Follow the news on Mexico News Reports Help by sharing this information May 13, 2021 Find out more Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs saylast_img read more

Nurse in missing mom case of Kelsey Berreth to plead guilty

first_imgWoodland Park Police(NEW YORK) — A nurse from Twin Falls, Idaho, is expected to plead guilty to at least one charge in connection to the case of missing Colorado mother and flight instructor Kelsey Berreth, ABC News has learned.Krystal Lee, 32, is scheduled to appear in a Colorado courtroom this week to enter a plea deal with prosecutors, according to two of Lee’s relatives who spoke anonymously because the deal hasn’t been publicly announced.Family members said Lee has been cooperating with investigators, who have been looking into allegations Lee may have disposed of evidence.It’s not yet clear what charge or charges Lee is expected to plead guilty to, or whether she’d face jail time. Attempts to reach Lee’s attorney have been unsuccessful.A spokeswoman for District Attorney Dan May would not confirm or comment on any potential plea, but she did confirm that Lee has a court date set for Friday, Feb. 8, in Teller County.“This case is under seal,” said Lee Richards, a spokeswoman for Colorado’s 4th Judicial District Attorney’s office.Patrick Frazee was arrested in December and charged with Berreth’s murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder. He has not entered a plea.Berreth was last seen Thanksgiving Day, shopping with the couple’s 1-year-old daughter, Kaylee, at a Woodland Park, Colorado, supermarket. Three days after Berreth vanished, investigators said her cellphone signal was detected in Idaho.While Lee’s exact relationship to Frazee and her alleged role in the case aren’t known, multiple law enforcement sources have told ABC News she’s suspected of driving Berreth’s phone to Idaho in an attempt to dispose of it.According to two family members, Lee said she only helped Frazee because he threatened her life. Police said they believe Berreth was killed in her townhome, and that Frazee was the last person to see her.Berreth’s body has not been found, which could complicate how a jury views the case, according to former Adams County Colorado prosecutor Bob Grant.“Without a body or cause of death, the prosecutor has to prove the death without any question,” Grant said.Last month, a judge granted temporary custody of Kaylee to Berreth’s parents, Cheryl and Darrell Berreth. The couple also has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Frazee. Frazee is due back in court Feb. 19.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Rospa calls on employers to keep staff safe on roads

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Rospa calls on employers to keep staff safe on roadsOn 4 Dec 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has urged the Governmentto give its full support to plans to reduce work-related road accidents. The Work-Related Road Safety Taskforce recommends that the Health and SafetyExecutive publish guidance for employers on their duty to manage the safety oftheir employees, whether as company car or van drivers, motorcyclists orpedestrians (News, 27 November). Rospa’s occupational safety adviser Roger Bibbings said the Government wouldneed to play a key role ensuring that the police, the HSE and other road safetyenforcers work more closely together to apply health and safety law on theroad. “Rospa wants to see the Government working in partnership with a widerange of bodies, such as insurers, the fleet sector, employers’ organisations,trade unions, safety organisations and local authorities, to develop aco-ordinated national action programme to deal with Britain’s biggestoccupational safety issue,” Bibbings said. Under the proposals, the HSE will investigate whether traffic accidentsinvolving employees – which account for up to 1,000 deaths a year – are causedby employers setting their drivers unrealistic schedules, requiring them todrive while fatigued. “Employers who choose to ignore road safety will be on notice to changetheir ways or they could end up in court,” said Bibbings. www.rospa.co.uklast_img read more
