Thousands march on McDonald’s for $15/hr and a union

first_imgDespite heavy rains and winds, fast food workers and their supporters converged May 25 on McDonald’s corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., a western suburb of Chicago. Despite the storm, 100 tents were set up so McDonald’s workers could occupy the street overnight, in advance of the shareholders meeting the following day.On the morning of May 26, they were joined by thousands of other low-wage and community activists who had marched to McDonald’s huge 80-acre corporate campus where the shareholders’ meeting took place. Organized by Fight for $15, large contingents of majority Black and Latino/a workers demanding $15 an hour and a union came from cities including Detroit, New York, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New Orleans, St. Louis, and Chicago, as well as from Florida, Texas, Virginia and other states.For the third year in a row, McDonald’s closed most of its buildings for the protest. More than 300 armed police on foot and bikes and in cars were able to block repeated attempts by workers to get past police barricades.While executives and shareholders have enjoyed salary hikes and gains in stock dividends, most of the company’s 660,000 front-line workers make far less than a living wage at McDonald’s 14,000 U.S. restaurants.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

She is working as copy chief for tcu360.com as well as interning with Fox Sports Southwest. printAMES, IA – Despite a thoroughly weakened defense, TCU (7-0, 4-0 Big 12 Conference) defeated the Iowa State Cyclones (2-4, 1-2) 45-21 in Jack Trice Stadium Saturday night.This win marked the Horned Frogs’ 15th straight dating back to last season, which is a TCU record.Josh Doctson set two new TCU records in the win, including single-season receiving yards with 1,208 and single-season touchdown catches. He had 10 receptions for 190 yards and two touchdowns.Doctson did it all despite sustaining an injury in the first half. After the game, Doctson said he knew as soon as he stood up that he just had the wind knocked out of him.Wide receiver and freshman standout KaVontae Turpin was also injured in the win, and he never returned to the field. TCU head coach Gary Patterson said he didn’t think the injury was season-ending.Returning from a previous injury was wide receiver Kolby Listenbee, who started slow but caught six passes for 101 yards and a touchdown Saturday.Trevone Boykin’s consistency proved vital for the Frogs. He completed a personal record 84 percent of his passes for 436 yards and four touchdowns.Patterson said having a receiver like Doctson helps Boykin, and the quarterback agreed.“When you don’t have the best receiver in college football on the field when we’re going, it’s a big missing piece,” Boykin said about Doctson’s brief absence.“We’re like two peas in a pod,” Boykin said about his relationship with Doctson. “We’re just on the same page.”TCU’s defense struggled throughout the night, though sophomore Nick Orr and redshirt freshman Ridwan Issahaku led the team with 10 tackles each. Senior defensive end Josh Carraway helped the unit by recording one sack and six tackles.The Frogs scored 31 unanswered points after the first quarter, but the statistics disguise how much of a back-and-forth the game was.“It was a physical ballgame,” Patterson said. “We’ll be sore tomorrow.”Patterson emphasized the team’s need to get started faster, especially during away games. He said he told an announcer that TCU is the worst first quarter defense in college football right now.“We have to quit playing tentatively when we go on the road,” Patterson said, joking that he may not show up until the second half the next game. “Once we get them settled down and get into rhythm, it’s been okay. You’ve got to give Iowa State credit. They came after us.”Nick Orr ended up with a strong defensive showing after missing a key tackle and garnering a pass interference call in the first quarter.The Frogs lost safety Denzel Washington in the second quarter when he was ejected for targeting. Patterson said he then moved a linebacker to strong safety and put in another linebacker.Carraway said he knew the remaining players on defense would adjust well.“I know at the end of the day that we have somebody who can do just as good as what he does,” Carraway said.The defensive end said after the first quarter, the defense worked more efficiently.“In the second half, they were doing their jobs,” Carraway said. “They were fitting where they’re supposed to, making plays where they’re supposed to be making plays.”Though the Iowa State crowd of 52,480 was loud in the red zone early in the game, nearly half of the stadium appeared empty by the beginning of the fourth quarter.Placekicker Jaden Oberkrom also set a TCU record. He has kicked more field goals than anyone in Horned Frog football history, with 66.With this win, the Frogs have emerged undefeated from a four-game stretch that featured difficult road games, Patterson said. The team has a bye week next week, and will then play a Thursday night game against West Virginia on Oct. 29.“We’re going to need the 12 days to get ourselves back and get ourselves ready to go,” he said. “We’re trying to get to November.” TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson, top, catches a pass over Iowa State defensive back Kamari Cotton-Moya (5) during the first half of an NCAA college football game, Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015, in Ames, Iowa.

Terror stalks journalists in the east

It has just released a series of nine recommendations to sustainably improve the state of press freedom on the island.In the wake of Aiyathurai Nadesan’s murder in May 2004 in the eastern city of Batticaloa, Sinhalese, Tamil and Muslim journalists described the difficulties facing province-based correspondents. Before he was killed, Nadesan had told Reporters without Borders: “We are always caught in the crossfire. It is very hard for us to check our information with both the security forces and the Tamil Tigers. And when a local news article is released from Colombo, we may face reprisals in the field.”During a fact-finding mission in Sri Lanka early this year, Reporters without Borders interviewed dozens of journalists. The majority expressed their apprehensions and frustrations in dealing with a situation that has become much too volatile for them to assert that press freedom is a given in the country. Moreover, the association has noted new outbreaks of threats and assaults against journalists within the last few weeks.The impunity which prevails in cases involving the murder and assault of journalists is seriously jeopardising press freedom and the peace process in Sri Lanka. Reporters without Borders urges the Sri Lankan government and President Chandrika Kumaratunga to take immediate action to find and punish the perpetrators.The international organisation has drawn up nine recommendations for sustainably improving the safety and freedom of the country’s journalists. These recommendations underline the urgent need to:1. Fight impunity;2. Put an end to threats against journalists;3. Give the ceasefire control authority greater powers;4. Ensure the autonomy of the state-owned media;5. Prevent the violations committed by the security forces;6. Force the LTTE to accept pluralism and criticism;7. Protect the Muslims’ right to freedom of expression;8. Ensure the safety and independence of province-based correspondents;9. Put a stop to hate-mongering in the media.Read or download the report One journalist has been murdered, while a dozen others face death threats in the eastern part of the island: these are trying times for press freedom in Sri Lanka. Reporters without Borders is calling upon the President and her government to act swiftly to sustainably enhance the safety and freedom of the country’s journalists.

Tibetan writer talks about violations of free expression

first_img Follow the news on China Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more News Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Help by sharing this information News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News Gedun Tsering, a Tibetan writer who has been forced to flee his homeland and seek refuge in Dharamsala, the city in northern India where the Tibetan government in exile is based, has talked to Reporters Without Borders about freedom of expression in Tibet.“I often lost my patience and tolerance when reacting to China’s harsh policies toward the Tibetan people, which are aggravating the extremely tense situation in Tibet,” said Tsering, 20, a writer and former teacher from Serdeu Township, Marthang County, in the Amdho Ngaba region of Tibet (Changrig Tibet Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province). He is one of several Tibetan writers who have been focusing on the facts and figures of China’s continual violence against Tibetans inside Tibet.Tsering said the communist regime accused him of inciting separatism. He spent most of the past year hiding in the hills and mountains of eastern Tibet’s Ngaba region after the Chinese authorities found several books and magazines and accused the authors, including himself, of “inciting activities designed to split the nation.” The authors were alleged to have had a political motivation for writing about various Tibetan issues. But Tsering said that articles are much more experimental and descriptive. Nonetheless “The Tears” (Tibetan: Migchu), “The Tongue” (Che), “The Alive Eye” (Sonmig) and “Peaceful Struggles” (Shiwai Drakgol) were accused of “inciting political activities.”Asked about the difficulties of writing “The Alive Eye” and “The Tears” in Tibet, Tsering said: “You may never know if any good will result if you just protest in the streets and villages, but if you do nothing there will be no result. So we decided to create a platform for Tibetan newspapers and magazines and other media, so that our voices would be heard by the world. The books mainly focused on the 2008-2010 events in Tibet, including the peaceful demonstrations in all parts of Tibet and China’s crackdown since March 2008. The aim was to contradict the Chinese state-controlled media propaganda on the Tibet issue.”Tsering said all the Tibetan popular websites and blogs where Tibetan scholars, monks and students used to publish their articles have been shut down by Chinese authorities since 2008. The Chinese authorities accused them of inciting separatism because of the opinions expressed about Tibet. Nowadays in Tibet, there are no longer any good news websites and blogs where Tibetans can access information and post their views. There are too many restrictions on freedom of the press and freedom of speech.“In ‘The Alive Eye’, we expressed our opinions on the importance of environmental protection in Tibet, as well as the preservation and promotion of the Tibetan culture,” Tsering said. “I and my colleagues from various parts of Tibet were preparing to distribute the books. In fact, more than 5,000 books and magazines have been widely distributed in many areas of Tibet. But the Chinese authorities accused us of trying split the motherland.”“I and seven other Tibetan writers also wrote a book called ‘The Tongue’ that focused mainly on the recent massive earthquake in Kyigudo, in eastern Tibet, which killed so many people,” he said. “We subsequently distributed the book. The Chinese authorities did not allow us to visit the quake-affected area. We were told that there was crying, that voices were heard from where people were trapped under the rubble. The authorities also prevented many other Tibetan journalists from visiting the area.”As regards “The Alive Eye”, Tsering said: “Countless Tibetans lost their lives by struggling for truth and justice in Tibet during the 2008 peaceful demonstrations in all parts of Tibet. We expressed our suffering, anger and hatred towards the Chinese authorities and failed to maintain patience and tolerance toward the Communist officials who carried out the widespread persecution and slaughter of Tibetans in their homeland.” Newscenter_img RSF_en March 12, 2021 Find out more January 4, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Tibetan writer talks about violations of free expression ChinaAsia – Pacific ChinaAsia – Pacific April 27, 2021 Find out more Organisation China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures to go furtherlast_img read more

Union of India 2015 (5) SCC 1, F.I.R. under section 66A of Information Technology (Amendment) Act, 2008 cannot be registered, as the same has been declared to be ultravires.

In one case, a Journalist Shiv Kumar (Amar Ujala), had approached the High Court seeking to quash the FIR registered against him under section 188 and 505 of Indian Penal Code read with section 3 of Epidemic Act and Section 66A of Information Technology Act. Disposing of his petition, the Court found that ‘it is apparent that cognizable offence is there for which investigation is in process, hence no ground for indulgence is made out.’  In the other case, the bench headed by Justice Ramesh Sinha refused to quash the F.I.R.registered against a person named Rohit Singhal under Section 66A Information Technology Act  even though the counsel cited the Supreme Court judgment in Shreya Singhal.The Supreme Court had struck down Section 66A of the Information Technology Act in its entirety in a judgment delivered in 2015 (Shreya Singhal vs. Union of India). Last year, the Apex Court had expressed its concern and displeasure about the continued use of this ‘unconstitutional’ Section 66A of the IT Act.Section 66A of the Information Technology Act, was struck down for being violative of Article 19(1)(a) and not saved under Article 19(2). Section 66A was introduced in the Information Technology Act by virtue of an Amendment Act of 2009. The said provision penalised any person who sends, by means of a computer resource or a communication device,— (a) any information that is grossly offensive or has menacing character; or (b) any information which he knows to be false, but for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience, danger, obstruction, insult, injury, criminal intimidation, enmity, hatred or ill will, persistently by making use of such computer resource or a communication device; or (c) any electronic mail or electronic mail message for the purpose of causing annoyance or inconvenience or to deceive or to mislead the addressee or recipient about the origin of such messages.

The Application also refers to the non-compliance by the Central Government of the Order dated 16th December, 2019, wherein the Supreme Court had given three months to the Centre to fill the vacancies that existed in the CIC and directed for the matter to be listed before the Court on 25th March, 2020. It is submitted in the Application that the number of vacancies has increased to 6, thereby frustrating the order of the Supreme Court as well as the citizens’ fundamental right to information. It is also stated that the Centre is resorting to issuing fresh advertisements instead of filling all the advertised vacant posts, thereby causing undue delay in the appointments. “No reasons have been furnished by the Respondents as to why 4 vacancies were not filled pursuant to the advertisement dated 12.12.2019 and the order of this Hon’ble Court dated 16.12.2019 and instead after filling only one vacancy now this new advertisement dated 12.07.2020 has been put out.” The Application further underlines the failure of the State Governments to comply with the directions of the Supreme Court rendered in judgment dated 15.02.2019 and refers to how State Information Commission of Maharashtra is functioning with only 5 Commissioners and there is a backlog of nearly 60,000 appeals/complaints. Similar situation exists in State of Odisha. In light of the above, the Application seeks for urgent hearing of the matter.

However, the bench accepted the request of Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi to delete the petitioner Ishoo Narang’s description as ‘fraud’ and ‘cheat’ in HC judgment in view of the OTS settlement with banks.In the judgement dated 22nd December, 2020, the Telangana High Court, while dealing with a batch of criminal petitions filed by Ishoo Narang and others seeking to quash the criminal charges against the, had noted that the banks’ acceptance of OTS would not absolve the Petitioners. “Such economic frauds adversely affect the financial and economic well-being of the Nation and have implications which lie beyond the domain of a mere dispute between Petitioner No. 4 and the above said banks, including Central Bank of India and Bank of Maharashtra. The mere fact that the banks which are already under stress to clear the NPAs from their books accepted the OTS, will not absolve the petitioners from criminal charges”. The issue in the judgement arose on account of the Petitioners’ company having availed credit facilities from various banks under the multiple banking arrangements for the purpose of conducting business in procuring and selling of coal. However, an FIR was subsequently registered by the banks involved on the charge that the company had committed fraud and cheated the Banks, causing a loss worth crores. Further, the High Court also noted that the complainants’ banks had also specifically incorporated in the acceptance of the OTS proposals terms and conditions that the acceptance of the same would not absolve the criminal liability of the Petitioners and that OTS and criminal liability were different and distinct. It was further elucidated that the Supreme Court had categorically held that, in economic offences, it was not proper for the High Corut to exercise its inherent powers under Section 482 CrPC to qaush the FIRs/charge sheets.
