This completes the legal process.Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba proposed the motion. Addressing the synod, meeting this week in Benoni, Johannesburg, he emphasised ACSA’s commitment to being at the heart of Anglican life, often acting as a bridge-builder, and drawing on its own experiences of living with considerable diversity and wrestling with difference.Seconding the motion, Bishop Rubin Philip of Natal, dean of the province, quoted from the Introduction to the covenant: “To covenant together is not intended to change the character of this Anglican expression of Christian faith. Rather, we recognise the importance of renewing in a solemn way our commitment to one another, and to the common understanding of faith and order we have received, so that the bonds of affection which hold us together may be re-affirmed and intensified. We do this in order to reflect, in our relations with one another, God’s own faithfulness and promises towards us in Christ (2 Cor 1.20-22).”With debate only addressing a minor wording amendment, the motion was passed without dissent.

first_imgCall for Workers Defense Guards against the Klan by UE Local 203, Burlington, VT.More than 200 people marched down Church Street to City Hall in Burlington, Vt., on Nov. 5 to oppose the Ku Klux Klan, which had recently left racist threats on the doors of two Black workers. The march was organized by Local 203 of the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers (UE) and joined a speak-out action organized by Rights & Democracy. Members of UE Locals 255 and 267 also participated, along with other community organizations.“KKK get out of town, we have come to shut you down,” the group chanted. “KKK get off our streets, the union will tear off your sheets.”On Oct. 29, letter-sized fliers were placed on the doors of two different Black workers, one an activist with Black Lives Matter, with the intent to intimidate them. The posters read, “Join The Klan and Save Our Land!!!!” and depict a hooded, cross-wielding Klansman riding a horse in front of a U.S. colonial flag and a Confederate flag.Speaking in front of the crowd, UE Local 203 member Senowa Mize-Fox stated, “Racism is alive and well everywhere, including Burlington, and we have to address that.”UE members also circulated a statement that began, “The sisters and brothers of our Union … have zero tolerance for the Klan. The recent appearance of KKK fliers on the doors or people of color in Burlington is an intolerable threat. We as a community cannot react softly. These fliers are not free speech. They are not a prank, nor a joke. They were designed to spread fear and insecurity, to threaten, and to announce the presence of a larger organization historically drenched in blood.” (To read the full statement, go to Labor Against Racist Terror on Facebook.)Anti-racist activists across the country have been protesting against all forms of institutionalized racism in the aftermath of the June 17 massacre of nine Black church parishioners at the Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., by white racist Dylann Roof. Many in the movement demanded the removal of Confederate flags from government buildings and protested the names of schools and other public buildings for Confederate army generals throughout the U.S.South Burlington High School was allowed to keep its nickname, “The Rebels,” which references the Confederates, in a recent school board ruling.Over Labor Day weekend, leaders of the International Longshoremen’s Association Local 1422 in Charleston and other unions, including the Southern Workers Assembly and Black community groups, organized a mass march to oppose the murders at the AME church and also the police murder of Walter Scott in North Charleston, S.C.In response to this movement, racists, white supremacists, fascists and right-wingers of all stripes have been on the defensive, and have been publicly displaying Confederate flags as acts of defiance. However, they have often been confronted with great mass resistance.Workers Defense Guard formedIn situations such as in Burlington, police departments often wipe their hands clean and do a very cursory investigation. Despite the fact that there is a surveillance video showing someone posting the KKK messages, the police have still not arrested the racist culprit.Historically, the police have colluded with violent racist organizations and protected them. Right-wing and white-supremacist organizations often place their members inside police departments, while police departments often recruit members of these organizations and work with them publicly.A study of the Greensboro Massacre of Nov. 3, 1979, reveals this type of collusion among the KKK, the police and even the federal government. Five people were killed in this incident, including labor and community organizers.Bernard Butkovich, an undercover agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, later testified that he was aware that Klansmen and members of the American Nazi Party unit that he had infiltrated would confront and kill demonstrators. Although the massacre was fully filmed by a television news agency, not a single person ever served any jail time.Members of UE Local 203 and the UE Young Activist program in Burlington have formed a Workers Defense Guard to continue to stand against racial injustice and physically defend those under attack by the KKK and other white-supremacist hate groups.“Workers understand that we cannot rely on the police to protect us against racists and vigilantes like the KKK,” stated Elizabeth Nikazmerad, president of Local 203. She continued, “That is why we are organizing a Workers Defense Guard to defend ourselves and anyone in the Black community who needs defense.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


first_imgPeople in Honduras deluged after 2020 hurricanes.Nov. 16 — The storms battering the north and northwest coast of Alaska and the hurricanes rampaging through the Caribbean and southeastern North America may or may not be produced by human-generated global warming. Scientists differ on this question. But scientists and people trying to survive these storms do agree that they are becoming more intense and more dangerous, particularly to the Indigenous people and workers living in their paths, who often do not have the money to move out of the way or weatherproof their homes.How close are we to the tipping point when human intervention can no longer interrupt the climatic feedback loops and when global climate change cannot be reversed, halted or even slowed?Hurricanes in the CaribbeanThere have been 30 named storms as of Nov. 15 in the current season, surpassing the record 28 major storms in 2005.  The character of the 2020 hurricanes has also changed. The winds are more intense; gusts last longer, and the speed is higher. This means winds now destroy more roofs, topple more trees and power pylons and damage more houses and other buildings. Since warm air carries more moisture, the 2020 hurricanes dropped more rain.  The hurricanes also moved significantly slower, and, surprisingly, some grew in intensity over 24 hours, increasing their wind speed by as much as 70 miles per hour, according to Kerry Emanuel, a meteorologist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “It’s a forecaster’s nightmare,” Dr. Emanuel told the New York Times Nov. 3. Hurricanes going from Category 1 to Category 4 in 24 hours are especially dangerous.Hurricane Eta hit Nicaragua Nov. 3 as a Category 4, before slamming into Honduras and Guatemala. Some 120 people died and 113 are still missing, with 210,000 evacuated from their homes. Communities living along the Caribbean coast, particularly the Indigenous Miskito and Garifuna peoples, have been devastated by mudslides, floods (Eta dropped over 25 inches of rain) and high winds. Some of the missing are feared to be entombed in the mud.A new storm, Hurricane Iota, is threatening to come ashore in the very same area of Central America as a monster Category 4.The pandemic, in addition to the threat of Hurricane Iota, is making recovery very difficult. The Red Cross is handing out hand sanitizer and masks, but with hundreds of thousands of people crowding into mass shelters and living under bridges and abutments, the sanitary situation is not good.The Honduran government estimates that over a billion dollars will be needed — money it doesn’t have — to recover.  The U.S. Agency for International Development has donated $100,000. (Guardian, Nov. 3)Storms in the ArcticA home in Nome, Alaska, underwater after 2020 melting of ice covering on sea and shore.When one of these writers first went to work in the Arctic a dozen years ago, the Arctic Ocean in July could have been mistaken for a large lake. No waves lapped the beach, and the waters were calm as far as you could see. On the horizon was a line of something that looked like the opposite shore but was actually the edge of the ice. The height of waves in the Beaufort Sea, the eastern part of the Arctic Ocean, could not even be measured then because ice covered most of it all summer. At least 2,000 years ago, peoples settled on the Arctic coast on both sides of the Bering Strait to be near the seals, fish, walrus and whales on which they depended. Once they began hunting the huge bowhead whales, their communities were able to support several hundred people. Whale hunting requires enough people to hunt and process these large mammals, which in turn provides enough food to support the communities through much of the year.But the climate in the Arctic is rapidly changing, even more quickly than elsewhere. The temperature is generally estimated to be increasing at two or three times the rate of the temperate zones. In spring 2020, temperatures in Siberia hit the record high of 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Massive fires followed, burning vast areas of forest and peat land and releasing enormous quantities of CO2 and methane, potent greenhouse gases. (tinyurl.com/yxsp44ut) The heat events, along with record low multiyear sea-ice cover this year coming after several years of ice at historic minimums, indicate substantial warming across the region. The trend is ominous. Due to the rapid loss of the protective ice cover of the ocean and the late formation of the annual shore-fast ice, Arctic coastal communities have become vulnerable to increasingly violent autumn storms that lash the coastal strips along which these communities are built. Now each fall, huge waves, fierce winds and storm surges tear away ever larger sections of coast, flooding and knocking down homes, roads, and other vital village infrastructure. Some 30 communities, many very old, are facing relocating due to changing climate, moving inland to be farther from the coast — and farther from their livelihood and  cultural ways of life. And now this climate catastrophe is taking place within a pandemic that is hitting Native communities four to five times harder then non-Native Alaskans. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Receive email alerts Latin America’s community radio – a key service but vulnerable RSF_en News Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political elites April 1, 2020 Find out more to go further News China’s diplomats must stop attacking media over coronavirus reporting Help by sharing this information December 4, 2019 Find out more September 19, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Death threats made against journalist specialising in highly sensitive investigations News Follow the news on Peru Reporters Without Borders today called on the authorities to react rapidly to assist journalist Americo Zambrano, of the weekly magazine Caretas, who has been repeatedly targeted by death threats since 9 September 2008.The “warnings” appear to be linked to recent revelations made by the 30-year-old journalist about alleged links between the powerful Sanchez Paredes family and Mexican drug cartels. Zambrano, an investigative specialist, had also during the same period exposed a case of corruption within the army high command.“Americo Zambrano’s plight does appear to be taken seriously at the highest police level and we are pleased to see it,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Nevertheless, we urge the authorities not to neglect any avenue of inquiry that could explain the threats, in particular the case he revealed relating to senior army officers. We also express our solidarity with Americo Zambrano and his magazine and hope that this investigation will rapidly bring results”, it added.Zambrano, who lives and works in Lima told Reporters Without Borders that he received the most recent threatening phone call on 15 September, when a male voice, the same as on the previous calls the journalist thought, told him, “Die, damn you”. The previous evening the same caller had asked if he “liked to go for walks”, suggesting that he was being followed. Overnight on 11 September, the journalist found his dog dead from poisoning at the entrance to his home.Zambrano received an international award from the Press and Society Institute of Peru (IPYS) a continental Lima-based press freedom organisation, for his investigation into alleged links between the Sanchez Parades family and the Mexican drug cartels. The journalist strongly suspects that the threats come from this clan, whose representatives have also laid a complaint against him for “fraud”. Although he believed his report into a corruption case naming the General Commander of the Peruvian military, Edwin Donayre, could also be behind the campaign of intimidation.National police chief, General Octavio Salazar, has personally promised Zambrano that an investigation would be opened. Police appear to place more weight on the drug-trafficking lead. Journalist and editor of Caretas, Marco Zileri, is due to make a formal complaint during the week.
