Idle No More movement sweeps across Canada

first_img“Idle No More,” a movement led by First Nations (Native) peoples in defense of the water, the land, the sky and their treaty rights, has swept across Canada like wildfire. It is a movement formed by Indigenous women that has been joined by thousands of Native people, allies and now people from around the world.Throughout Canada and internationally, many have come out to insist that Indigenous sovereignty must be respected. Trains and highways in Canada have periodically been blocked. Native round-dance flash mobs have shown up at shopping malls. Indigenous people from reservations large and small have come out to demonstrate their support.Social media have been used extensively as an organizing tool. Canada’s cities from Halifax to Ottawa to Vancouver have seen large marches of Native people and their supporters.  This is the largest Indigenous movement in Canada since the 1990 resistance at Oka and Kahnawake.In part, the upsurge in Idle No More was sparked on Dec. 4, when First Nations representatives were physically prevented from entering the House of Commons in Ottawa, where they had planned to raise their concerns about proposed legislation that would have a tremendous impact on First Nations.Via Omnibus Bill C-45 and other legislation, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservative government are attempting to gut protections of thousands of waterways and to bypass and destroy the treaty rights of First Nations and make harsh budget cuts that would impact many Indigenous lives. Harper and his government refuse to consult with First Nations about these hastily pushed-through pieces of legislation that will have immense implications for First Nations.In Ontario, Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence has been on a hunger strike since Dec. 11.  She has said that she will fast until Harper agrees to meet with her and other Indigenous leaders; others including 72-year-old Emil Bell have joined in her fast. So far, the prime minister has refused any consultation with Chief Spence or any other First Nations leadership, despite months of requests for him to do so.Pent up pain and angerThe root of the Idle No More response is the colonial relationship that Canada has with Native peoples, who continue to experience a lack of adequate housing and sanitation, high unemployment and incarceration rates, high suicide rates and ill health, reduced life expectancy, and lack of educational opportunities for youth while living in a wealthy country built on their stolen land and resources. Idle No More is a manifestation of the pent-up pain and anger that Native people carry from generations of suffering under colonialism.Melaw Nakehk’o, who helped to organize protests in Yellowknife [Northwest Territories, Canada], said, “It’s a movement, it’s a continuous thing. It not only has to do with the bills that are passing through, it’s just that we’re not going to be idle anymore. We’re not going to take it anymore.” [Northern News Service, Dec. 24]In 2008, Harper publicly apologized for the residential school system that devastated thousands of Native families and promised to forge “a new relationship” based on “partnership and respect.” Since that time, however, the Harper government has cut First Nations health funding, gutted environmental review processes, refused to participate in land claim negotiations, ignored the more than 600 missing and murdered Indigenous women across Canada, withheld documents from the residential school Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and cut funding for First Nations educational and child welfare agencies.Indigenous people are the fastest growing population in Canada, with many youth who are very conscious of the history of injustices against their people.Progressive non-Native Canadian activists have been supporting Idle No More, both because they recognize the importance of treaty obligations and because the attacks on Indigenous peoples are part of widespread attacks on working people and the environment, part of selling off Canada’s natural resources and opening up the lands for even further corporate exploitation.Indigenous peoples throughout the world — who have no borders in the struggle — and their supporters have been standing singly, in small gatherings, in flashmobs and rallies of a thousand or more, to support Idle No More.For more than a generation, Indigenous peoples have been issuing warnings, about the need to respect their treaty rights, and about the threats to the water and the earth.  It is time for others to listen and Idle No More.Email Prime Minister Stephen ­Harper: [email protected] Canada’s Governor General: [email protected] thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Students concerned about mask compliance inside TCU’s library

first_imgFrog Camp provides familiar experience for first-year students Silver linings in a pandemic Linkedin TCU faculty talk about managing a hybrid classroom TCU employee dies of complications related to COVID-19 + posts The Mary Couts Burnett Library. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer) ReddIt Twitter Linkedin Twitter Shannon Murphyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shannon-murphy/ ReddIt Shannon Murphyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shannon-murphy/ Facebook Shannon Murphy printSome students have expressed concern about the failure of some of their peers to adhere to safety guidelines in the Mary Couts Burnett Library. The library has instituted a list of protocols, but students have reported these are not being followed at all times. Diandria Veals, a senior biochemistry major, said she noticed students were not wearing masks in the library during the first week of classes. “I noticed a lot of people either not wearing their masks or wearing them improperly,” Veals said. “It was just super uncomfortable being indoors with that many people that I got up and left the library.” Veals has not been back in the library as she feels more comfortable studying in her apartment or in the Sid W. Richardson Building on campus. Protocols in the library consist of wearing face coverings throughout the building even in group study rooms, staying physically distant from others and using disinfecting wipes on surfaces and in the computer labs. “We have had some problems with some students not wearing face coverings even though it’s required throughout the building,” said Tracy Hull, the dean of TCU’s library. “The staff have had to frequently ask students to put their face coverings on. Once asked, students for the most part are cooperative.”Ashley Travis, a student assistant in the music library, said she feels relatively safe working at the library as she spends most of her time behind a plexiglass shield with her mask on.“The issues I have are when I am walking into work or shelving books because that means I see many students who either take their mask completely off or wear it under their nose,” Travis said.Hull said if students refuse to comply with the library’s protocols then the staff are allowed to ask them to leave the building, but she hopes it will not get to that point.Kirsten Lamb, a senior social work and criminal justice double major, works in the library and said she believes students need to understand the position they are putting the staff in when they fail to comply with the library’s protocols.“Each of the library staff has their own family to go home to and none of them deserve to get sick,” said Lamb. “I think students need to be more aware of the potential impact they have off campus as well, specifically the risk of spreading COVID-19 to more vulnerable populations than those of us who live on campus.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Shannon Murphyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shannon-murphy/ Facebook Shannon Murphyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shannon-murphy/ Shannon Murphy is a journalism and political science double major from San Jose, California.

The Azerbaijani public and press were deeply shocked when he was shot seven times at the entrance to his apartment on 2 March 2005. Many people publicly accused the government of being involved in his murder.“We went to Baku in April 2005 to look into this case and we have on many occasions urged the judicial authorities to carry out a proper investigation,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The prosecutor’s office recent accused former economic development minister Farkhad Allev of having a role in his death. But there was no follow-up and charges have not been pressed against him. The case is still open but there is no sign of it being solved.”Husseynov was the target of constant threats and was harassed several times by the authorities. The Monitor went bankrupt after being ordered to pay an exorbitant amount of damages in a libel case in 1996, and it took until 2000 before it was able to resume publishing. In 2001, Hussenynov was sentenced to six months in prison for libel.President Ilham Aliev was this year added to the Reporters Without Borders list of press freedom predators.

‘Hero’ student describes how he, 2 classmates, thwarted suspect in Colorado school shooting

first_imgCourtesy John Castillo(HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo.) — A high school student who helped tackle an accused gunman at his Colorado high school this week said his feeling of “absolute and complete fear” evaporated as he watched his friend, Kendrick Castillo, charge forward without hesitation.Along with Castillo and one other student, Brendan Bialy, an 18-year-old student at the STEM School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, was able to disarm one of the alleged shooters and pin him to the ground. 18-year-old Castillo was killed as he charged at the accused gunman and threw him up against the wall.“There was no questioning. There was no hesitation. There was no looking around,” Bialy said of Castillo as he spoke to reporters at a news conference.“It’s really hard to stop that kid when he gets going,” Bialy said, likening Castillo to a human bowling ball as he rushed to overpower the suspect. “The gunman… was against the wall and didn’t know what the hell hit him.”Bialy said he had known Castillo since their freshman year and said they had been close friends. He described Castillo as a “fantastic, wholesome person” who loved cars and electronics.Bialy was seated on the far side of his classroom on Tuesday afternoon when one of the two alleged shooters entered the room brandishing a pistol. He said his fight-or-fight response kicked in after seeing his friend stand up to the threat.Bialy was able to get the gun away from the suspect while the third student, who has not been identified, joined in to help and pinned the suspect to the ground, Bialy said.Bialy said the gun went off once or twice. After Castillo was shot, an IT teacher came into the room and began performing chest compressions on the 18-year-old.Castillo later died at a local hospital. Eight other students were injured in the shooting, including some in that same classroom, authorities said.The only injury Bialy received in the scuffle was scrapes on his knees.“I was blessed by something,” he said. “Somebody’s watching down on me. Something, somebody, I don’t know. Even though I was inches away, I didn’t get shot.”Bialy described the gunmen as cowards. He said he knew both suspects, including one who was in his graduating class, but he only saw one of the suspects in his classroom. Other students who were in the same room were also shot and injured, he said.Both suspects appeared in court Wednesday afternoon. The adult suspect, 18-year-old Devon Erickson, has been charged with murder. The other suspect, a juvenile, as not been identified, and any charges against him are not yet known.When asked by a reporter on how he was “able to smile” despite having just experienced a tragedy, Bialy explained that it was because he got to see “the absolute best in people.”“I got to see two heroes — two regular high school kids, two really awesome people — jump into action,” he said. “I was more than lucky to join them.”Bialy, who is a member of the U.S. Marines Corps’ Delayed Entry Program, rebuffed any suggestion that he was a hero, but said he has received congratulatory messages from several fellow U.S. servicemen.“I need to let them know that Kendrick Castillo and that other student were in the thick of it, rolling in the ground, where I was too,” he said.“Kendrick Castillio died a legend,” Bialy said. “I know he will be with me for the rest of my life.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Sempra’s ECA LNG project in Mexico to move ahead despite coronavirus scare

first_imgSempra Energy expects to make a final investment decision on the ECA LNG project in Q2 2020 Sempra to move ahead with ECA LNG project in Mexico amid coronavirus concerns. (Credit: Sempra Energy) Sempra Energy said that it will continue to move ahead with the development of phase 1 of the Energía Costa Azul LNG liquefaction-export project (ECA LNG project) in Mexico amid the coronavirus crisis.The energy infrastructure company expects to make a final investment decision on the Mexican LNG project in the second quarter of this year.Sempra Energy reiterated its plans for the LNG project at a virtual investor day conference call, during which it also provided details on its five-year capital plan.ECA LNG project phase 1 will have 2.4MTPA capacityPhase 1 of the ECA LNG project, which is being developed in Baja California, will be a single train LNG facility with a capacity of 2.4 million tonnes per annum (MTPA).Earlier this month, a fixed-price, lump-sum, turn-key engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract was awarded by the project holding company to Technip FMC.To be built near an existing LNG receipt terminal located about 24km north of Ensenada, the ECA LNG project is planned to liquefy US-produced natural gas. The LNG export project will have a second phase, which involves the addition of two LNG trains and an LNG storage tank.Despite the prevailing coronavirus pandemic, Sempra Energy said that it will stick to its five-year capital plan of about $32bn. The capital plan will be focused mainly on investments at the company’s utilities in the US, which include San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), Southern California Gas (SoCalGas), and Oncor Electric Delivery.The company said that it expects to wrap up the $4.55-4.85bn sale of its Peruvian and Chilean operations in the coming three to six weeks.Sempra Energy revealed that it is on the verge of completing phase 1 of the Cameron LNG project in Hackberry, Louisiana in which it indirectly owns a 50.2% stake.The company also said that earlier this month, the holding company of its Port Arthur LNG project had awarded an EPC contract to Bechtel Oil, Gas, and Chemicals. The Port Arthur LNG liquefaction project is currently being developed in Port Arthur, Texas, with the company continuing with the site preparation work.Sempra Energy said that while its businesses are operating as of now without any material disruptions, the progress of its projects will depend on the fast-evolving global health crisis.Sempra Energy chairman and CEO Jeffrey Martin said: “In the midst of a global health crisis, our first obligation is to the health and safety of our employees and the communities we serve.“Building resilience into our business model and investing in safe and reliable infrastructure is at the core of our strategy.“At Sempra Energy, our five-year capital plan – the most robust in our company’s history – gives us great visibility into sustainable earnings growth that should help create long-term value for our stakeholders.”last_img read more

Australian Naval Shipbuilding College officially opens

first_imgAustralia’s Naval Shipbuilding College which will deliver a coordinated, national approach to workforce development has been officially opened.Australian defense minister Christopher Pyne opened the College at Osborne in South Australia on November 1.The minister said it’s an integral interface with the shipbuilding industry to identify workforce requirements throughout all phases of construction and sustainment.“Today is exciting day for the future of shipbuilding in this country,” minister Pyne said.Under the management of the Naval Shipbuilding Institute, the college will also link up with education providers, as part of a hub and spoke model, to ensure courses are offered across Australia which produce workers who are job-ready.“I’m particularly excited to launch the naval shipbuilding workforce register.”“It enables Australians who are interested in long-term shipbuilding career opportunities to express their interest and receive assistance through the skilling and employment process.”“The workforce register will help connect people with potential employers or education providers.”“I encourage anyone interested in working on some of the most technologically advanced, cutting edge projects anywhere in the world to register.”The Australian government released the Naval Shipbuilding Plan in May 2017, which outlined a long term vision to establish Australian sovereign capability in naval shipbuilding.The government is investing $90 billion into the continuous shipbuilding program which is expected to create 5,200 shipbuilding jobs within 10 years, with additional jobs created in the sustainment and supply chain.
