The working party concluded there was “a very strong case for full merger” and that “the closely aligned visions of both organisations could be better fulfilled by coming together”. A merger would make both organisations more efficient and sustainable, but the new organisation “will enhance the work of both agencies and help deliver on a new vision for volunteering and voluntary action”.The new organisation will keep the NCVO tag and will retain the Volunteering England and Institute for Volunteering Research brands.Formal discussions will now focus on detailed planning on organisations structure and staffing and membership services.Chair of NCVO Trustees, Martyn Lewis CBE said: “We have encouraged the sector to consider mergers and collaboration and we are practising what we preach. By joining forces we will create a stronger voice and better support for voluntary organisations and volunteering.”Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO said: “This merger builds on years of close co-operation between NCVO and Volunteering England. We have a shared vision of how volunteering and voluntary organisations are at the heart of civil society. By pooling our skills and experience we will create a stronger champion for voluntary action.Both organisations have suffered funding cuts in the recent past and have also announced plans to cut staffing levels. They are both already based in the same building in Regent’s Wharf in North London.NCVO is already the largest voluntary sector umbrella body and last year took over the resource base KnowHow NonProfit from City University as well as merging with the Third Sector European Network (TSEN).last_img read more

The Alabama election: Which road toward African-American liberation?

first_imgSelma, Alabama, 1965. President Trump traveled to Pensacola, Fla., on Dec. 8 for a get-out-the-vote rally for white supremacist Judge Roy Moore, the Republican running for the U.S. Senate in nearby Alabama. Despite this, Moore lost to his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, appointed a U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama by former President Bill Clinton during the 1990s. At the Pensacola meeting, just 25 miles from the Alabama border, Trump urged participants to vote for Moore on Dec. 12.This event was held in the aftermath of a visit to Alabama by Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, to campaign for Moore. Bannon, who left the White House in recent months, then returned to the “alt-right” publication Breitbart News.African-American voters played a pivotal role in the defeat of Moore. The division within the white electorate and the overwhelming support of African-American and Latinx voters resulted in the narrow victory by Jones of approximately 1.5 percent.With the recent defeats of Republican candidates in Virginia and Alabama, the Democratic electorate has been reinvigorated. However, this will not automatically translate into a greater commitment on the part of the U.S. ruling class and state structures for the full realization of the demands of the African-American peopleInterestingly enough, initial reports indicate that a larger percentage of African Americans turned out to vote for Jones than they did for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race that brought Trump to power. Clinton was unable to inspire the necessary enthusiasm among nationally oppressed groups, resulting in her monumental defeat in the Electoral College.Consequently, independent political direction is still required for further progress aimed at full equality and self-determination. Even with Trump’s blatant racist pandering to an ever-shrinking political base, where his approval rating has sunk to an abysmal 32 percent, the Democratic Party as a whole is providing no real program to mobilize the African-American people. …At any rate, Trump is being revealed as a failed president. Even the conservative USA Today newspaper, in an editorial published on Dec. 14, said that he is unfit for office.Moreover, as it relates to the overall status of African-American people, bloc voting, direct action and mass mobilizations have been used effectively as tactics since the middle 20th century to achieve short-term goals, both on a symbolic and on a substantive level.However, the strategic objectives aimed at total freedom require a far deeper institution-building methodology.The necessary fundamental transformation of the economy and political superstructure can only be achieved through independent revolutionary organization designed to create a new social order based on the acquisition of a genuinely egalitarian society.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this The following is excerpted from an earlier article that dealt in more detail with Moore’s extreme right-wing politics.last_img read more

Street renamed “Media Freedom Street” by city’s mayor

first_img News Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma News News Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Reporters Without Borders hails last weekend’s decision by the mayor of Butembo, a city in the troubled eastern province of Nord-Kivu, to rename one of the city’s streets “Media Freedom Street.”“We welcome this gesture by Butembo’s mayor,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is an unusual initiative in a country and even more so in a region – Nord-Kivu – where the security situation for journalists is very fragile and media freedom is often flouted.“Apparently intended to encourage news providers and human rights activists, this measure speaks to the ability of local authorities and media representatives to establish a dialogue and understand each other. Aside from its strong symbolism, we hope it will have a concrete impact on the daily work of journalists and will help pave the way for a better tomorrow for media freedom and freedom of information.”In a 15 June municipal decree, Mayor Théodore Sikuly Uvasaka Makala said: “Media growth is encouraging in the city of Butembo, with 11 local radio stations, TV stations and a trainee newspaper for a population of about 1 million, without counting those in the areas around the city, who all benefit from this media enthusiasm.”He added: “Butembo is one of the few cities where the media, political and administrative authorities, religious authorities and public work closely together to establish democracy (…) the local media have helped and continue to help educate the local population in all domains and we should recognize their efforts.”Supported by Reporters Without Borders, the request for a “Media Freedom Street” was submitted by the city’s journalists during a round-table organized in Butembo on 3 May 2013, World Press freedom day. ———17.05.2013 – Support for Press Freedom Day debates in North KivuReporters Without Borders provided funding for two round-table meetings that local journalists’ groups organized for media personnel in the cities of Butembo and Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s eastern province of Nord-Kivu, on 3 May, World Press Freedom Day.The subject for debate at the meetings was “Speaking without fear and guaranteeing press freedom in all the media.” The meetings also provided an opportunity for dialogue with the authorities, who were invited to attend. “We are proud to have supported journalists in Butembo and Goma,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We hail the vitality and commitment of the Nord-Kivu journalistic community and we take note of the active participation by regional officials in these debates.“Given the complexity of the environment for the media in the eastern DRC, we fervently hope that these World Press Freedom Day meetings will have helped to establish the bases for a constructive dialogue that will enable all of Nord-Kivu’s journalists to work freely and safely.”Recent months have been particularly difficult for the media in the eastern DRC. Caught in the crossfire between government troops and militias fighting for control of the Kivu region, local media and journalists have been constantly hounded during the past six months. The many violations of freedom of information in Nord-Kivu have included the illegal suspension of broadcasting by radio stations in Goma in November, the ransacking of media offices, and other forms of harassment by M23 rebels, as well as arbitrary arrests of journalists by both government forces and militias.More than 100 journalists took part in the round-table organized in Butembo. The local officials attending included the city’s mayor, who delivered the opening address.A painting specially done for the event was signed by the mayor and representatives of eight Butembo journalists’ organizations as a symbol of the debates and the mutual undertakings by local authorities and media. On behalf the authorities, the mayor undertook to respect media rights and freedoms, while the journalists reaffirmed their commitment to media ethics and professional conduct. The mayor reportedly plans to name one of the city’ streets as “Media Freedom Street” by the end of May.The discussions focussed on the situation of the media in Nord-Kivu, the consequences for the media of the fighting between rebels and government forces, and the situation of women journalists. Widely covered by the local media, the event ended with a consensus among the various local journalists’ organizations, one that could pave the way for the creation of a single platform capable of voicing the concerns and demands of Butembo’s journalists.Support in Goma for detained journalistRepresentatives of the National Union of the Congolese Press of Nord-Kivu were among the journalists participating in the event in Goma, which local government officials also attended.The discussions focussed above all on security issues, respect for journalists’ rights, and media ethics, with frequent reference being made to the reports on freedom of information in the DRC published by Reporters Without Borders and its partner organization, Journalist in Danger.The case of Blaise Bahisha, a journalist detained by the Nord-Kivu military court since 17 April, was debated at length, in part because it is a good illustration of the kind of problem the media have to endure in the eastern DRC.All the journalists attending the meeting expressed their support for Bahisha and called for his release. The military prosecutor in charge of his case, who also attended the meeting, said he was awaiting instructions from Kinshasa on how to proceed with the case. This action was made possible by the support of The French Development Agency (FDP) Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Help by sharing this information June 18, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Street renamed “Media Freedom Street” by city’s mayor to go furthercenter_img Receive email alerts RSF_en February 24, 2021 Find out more News Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian February 18, 2021 Find out more Organisation February 16, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congolast_img read more

According to the state, only citizens of India were eligible to be registered for the purpose of counseling by the Examination Authority.  In one of the cases, a single bench had held that OCI card holders are eligible for general quota seats under Karnataka’s Common Entrance Test. The writ appeal filed by the State against the single bench judgment and the writ petition raising similar issues were heard together by the division bench of the High Court.Referring to statutory provisions under the Citizenship Act and notifications issued thereunder, the court observed that the amendment made to Section 2(1)(n) of 2006 Act is contrary to the Central Law and therefore, has to be struck down on the ground of repugnancy as per Article 254 of the Constitution. To hold thus, the bench referred to a notification issued by the Central Government and observed”66. Therefore, if, on an interpretation of the Notification dated 05/01/2009 it is held that the parity of OCI Cardholders with Non-Resident Indians in the matter of appearance and eligibility for admissions in the Medical/Dental and Engineering Entrance Test is removed, the OCI Cardholders cannot be treated as a Non-Resident Indian. The said Notification having been issued on 05/01/2009, would prevail as it is a Notification issued under the Citizenship Act, which is a Parliamentary legislation and not State law. Then, whether, by way of an amendment to the Act or by Rules (State law), an OCI Cardholder can be treated on par with a Non-Resident Indian? The Notification dated 05/01/2009 issued under Section 7B of the Citizenship Act essentially is regarding aspects of citizenship which is a subject under Entry 17 of List-I of the Seventh Schedule and incidentally touches upon educational rights of OCI Cardholders.The court said that the inclusion of the expression OCI Cardholder in the definition of Non-Resident Indian under Section 2(1)(n) of the 2006 Act being contrary to Notification dated 05/01/2009 is held to be repugnant and has to yield to the Central law. The bench further noted that as per the Scheme of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2016, there is no distinction made in eligibility and qualification in respect of the seats under the control of the States, deemed universities, Central Universities etc., under which Indian nationals, Non- Resident Indians, OCI Cardholders, Persons of Indian Origin and foreign nationals and are treated on par. Thus, an OCI Cardholder cannot be treated on par with the Non-Resident Indian under Section 2(1)(n) of 2006 Act (State law), on account of the interpretation given to Notification dated 05/01/2009 and the State law will have to yield to the Central law, due to applicability of doctrine of occupied field and having regard to the repugnancy under Article 254 of the Constitution, the court said.As a post-script to judgment, the bench remarked:Before parting, we would like to remind ourselves of the ancient Indian thought, namely “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, which means “the world is a family”. Therefore, the minor children of Indian citizens born overseas must have the same status, rights and duties as Indian citizens, who are minors.Case: Pranav Bajpe vs State Of Karnataka [WRIT PETITION No.27761/2019] Coram: Justices B.V.Nagarathna and NS Sanjay GowdaClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead Judgment Next Storylast_img read more

But, living in close quarters like firefighter crews do, you become like family and I appreciated those close friendships.”Outlaw said he has worked fires of all sizes — as big as the one at Whaley’s warehouse and as small as a brush fire. But every fire is worked the same because there are no unimportant or insignificant fires, he said.When Outlaw was announced as the chief of the Troy Fire Department in August 2006, it was both a proud and humbling moment.“I never expected to be the chief but I was appreciative of the opportunity,” he said.Outlaw took the reins as chief of the Troy Fire Department in February 2007. On Friday, he will take off fire chief’s badge and become a retired fire chief.“As fire chief, you are on call all the time,” Outlaw said.“I’m looking forward to being able to sleep all night with the phone ringing. And, I’ve got a lot of playing to do with my grandkids and a long honey-do list.”When he’s not playing or check items off his honey-do list, Outlaw said he plans to do some fishing and hunting. He doesn’t play golf, which is almost a required activity for retirees, but said he might pick it up.“Rita and I would like to do some traveling here in the United States and I’d really like to go to Israel,” he said. “But first, I think I’ll just sleep late.” Skip A retirement celebration will be held for Outlaw from 2 until 4 p.m. at Troy City Hall. The public is invited to come and show appreciation to Outlaw for his longtime public service.Outlaw said he has worked with great guys at the Troy Fire Department and for great people.“I’ve enjoyed working for the City of Troy, at the fire department and for the people of Troy and also for the people of Pike County,” he said. “It’s always been about people.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 3:00 am Friday, February 26, 2016 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Sponsored Content The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… By The Penny Hoarder Book Nook to reopen You Might Like Country talk: Roby hears from constituents during visit to Banks Buy-Rite U.S. Rep.

He has been with the Troy Fire Department since 1981 and he has been in love with his job since day one.“I had some friends who worked with the fire department and I was looking for something to get into that had retirement benefits,” Outlaw said. “I got hired and fell in love with the job of taking care of people.”Before coming to work for the Troy Fire Department, Outlaw had graduated from aviation school and was working as an airplane mechanic at Fort Rucker and was happy with his employment. Then, the war in Vietnam started to wind down and there were layoffs at Fort Rucker. Outlaw was among them. He had to look elsewhere for work.“It was around 1972 that I got work with a pest control company in Troy,” Outlaw said. “So, that was what I was doing before I came to work for the Troy Fire Department. But, I knew right away I was in the right place at the fire department.” A retirement reception for Troy Fire Chief Thomas Outlaw will be from 2 until 4 p.m. today at Troy City Hall. Outlaw has served the City of Troy as its fire chief for nine years. The public is invited to the reception.Many little boys want to be firemen when they grow up.Troy Fire Chief Thomas Outlaw did not.
