Boston street rally: ‘U.S./NATO Hands off Ukraine’

first_imgBy Steve Kirschbaum and Frank NeisserBostonWW photo: Steve KirschbaumA rally initiated by the Boston International Action Center in collaboration with the Boston Committee for Peace and Human Rights was held to protest U.S./NATO intervention in Ukraine on May 17. Participants included Steve Kirschbaum and Bob Traynham from Team Solidarity and the Boston School Bus Drivers Union, Ed Childs and Judy Davis from UNITE HERE Local 26, Sarah Roche-Mahdi from Code Pink, John McLeod and Michael Borkson from the Committee for Peace and Human Rights, Brian Shea of the Disabled Peoples Liberation Front, Frank Neisser of the IAC, Gerry Scoppettuolo of Stonewall Warriors, Bunny Caristi of Workers World Party and others. The protest was organized in response to a call by the United National Antiwar Coalition for actions from May 9 to May 26.The Boston IAC states: “U.S./NATO war moves in Eastern Europe, the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea — the borders of Russia — are a danger to the whole world. Positioning destroyers and missiles, scheduling war games and imposing sanctions (an act of war) risk wider war. We are deeply disturbed by the expansion of the U.S.-commanded NATO military alliance and U.S. recognition, and the speedy granting of billions of dollars in loans to a right-wing coup government in Ukraine, which overthrew the elected government. This illegal government has used fascist violence against all forms of peoples’ resistance in Ukraine.“Organize the movement to say no to this war! No support to fascism! U.S./NATO hands off! Self-determination for the people of the region now! No to fascism in the Ukraine! No new Cold War! Money for jobs and education, not war and racism!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Online memorial and writing prize launched to mark 30th birthday of slain journalist Christopher Allen

first_img November 1, 2019 Find out more to go further Photo: self portrait, Equatoria, South Sudan, August 2017 South SudanUnited StatesUnited KingdomAfricaAmericasEurope – Central Asia Armed conflictsImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence News Two years on, free expression groups hold DC and London vigils seeking justice for the killing of freelance journalist Christopher Allen With support from Reporters Without Borders (RSF), the family of slain British-American journalist Christopher Allen have launched an online memorial and writing prize to mark what would have been his 30th birthday. More than three years after his killing covering the civil conflict in South Sudan, Christopher’s family and RSF also renew their call for an investigation and concrete steps towards justice without further delay. On 23 December, freelance journalist Christopher Allen would have turned 30 years old had he not been killed on 26 August 2017, at the age of 26, covering the civil conflict in South Sudan. To mark his birthday, Christopher’s family have launched an online memorial with never-before-seen photos taken by Christopher and excerpts from his writing from the three weeks he spent embedded with rebel forces in South Sudan before he was killed in the line of duty.They have also announced the launch of the Christopher Allen Prize for Writing, a competition open to any secondary school student of South Sudanese descent living in South Sudan or any country in Africa. The mentorship which accompanies the cash prize embodies Christopher’s love of words and his generosity in supporting others to develop their writing and storytelling skills. These initiatives are intended to ensure Christopher’s legacy is not forgotten, but also to amplify the need for justice for his killing. More than three years on, there has still been no investigation, and no concrete steps towards justice. Christopher’s family still lacks even basic answers about what happened to him, and his own governments – the US and UK – have failed to provide them with meaningful support or sufficiently pressure the government of South Sudan to fulfil its obligation to conduct an investigation.“For more than three years, we have tried to uncover the truth about what happened to our son. For more than three years, we have been let down by the very institutions meant to protect journalists and safeguard freedom of expression. As we mark Christopher’s 30th birthday without him, we call again on these bodies – starting with the US government – to take concrete action to ensure another birthday does not pass without answers or justice, and that no other family will have to experience the pain we’ve endured,” said Christopher’s parents Joyce Krajian and John Allen.“We are deeply saddened and frustrated that more than three years on, Christopher Allen’s family remain largely in the same position they were in immediately after his killing, still asking the same questions from the same institutions, and still seeking answers and accountability. On his birthday, we renew our call for justice for Christopher, but also for greater action by the international community to concretely address the pervasive climate of impunity for the killings of journalists around the world – such as through the establishment of a UN Special Representative for the Safety of Journalists,” said RSF’s Director of International Campaigns Rebecca Vincent.RSF remains committed to supporting Christopher Allen’s family in their campaign for justice, alongside a legal team from Howard Kennedy LLP and Doughty Street Chambers.South Sudan is ranked 138th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.Notes:The online memorial to Christopher Allen is available at www.christopherallen.org.Details on the Christopher Allen Prize for Writing are available at www.christopherallen.org/prize.Press contacts: Christopher Allen’s family at [email protected] or Rebecca Vincent at [email protected] South SudanUnited StatesUnited KingdomAfricaAmericasEurope – Central Asia Armed conflictsImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence RSF welcomes UN Special Rapporteur’s statement calling for justice for Christopher Allen three years on August 25, 2020 Find out more Newscenter_img AP journalist’s expulsion another blow to press freedom in South Sudan News Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts August 26, 2019 Find out more RSF_en News Follow the news on Africa Organisation December 23, 2020 Online memorial and writing prize launched to mark 30th birthday of slain journalist Christopher Allenlast_img read more

As we begin to experience the benefits of vaccination, it is a reminder of what we are collectively working towards, a vaccination rollout that, along with our other protective measures, will end this pandemic.“People have worked exceptionally hard over the past three months to reduce transmission in our communities. We have shown time and again that we can act collectively to protect one another. Please keep this going over the coming weeks.”Professor Philip Nolan, Chair of the NPHET Irish Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group said; “For the week of the 7th-13th of March, 60% of disease incidence is taking place through close contact transmission and 24% in the community. 59% of transmissions are occurring in households. Outside of the household, almost half of transmissions are occurring in social gatherings and the workplace.”Dr. Cillian de Gascun, Medical Virologist and Director of the National Virus Reference Laboratory, said: “The B117 variant, Ireland’s most dominant variant of COVID-19 accounts for more than 90% of our cases and is extremely transmissible. Public health advice aims to limit the opportunities this virus has to spread, and it should be noted that B117 does not need much opportunity to do so. The most effective way to stop the spread of this variant and all variants of COVID-19 is to limit your social contacts and follow public health advice.”Dr Máirín Ryan, Deputy CEO of HIQA and Director of Health Technology Assessment, said: “Today, HIQA published an international review on public health measures and strategies to limit the spread of COVID-19. Ireland took a robust approach from the beginning of the pandemic in 2020 and maintained low hospitalisations and ICU admissions per million population when compared to other countries.“All countries with a published risk framework that is applied at national level are currently operating at the highest risk level.“All countries included in the report have launched their COVID-19 vaccinationprogrammes, with Israel having the largest share of its population fully vaccinated(47.5%) followed by Switzerland (4.3%) and Denmark (4.2%). In Ireland 3.3% of  the population were fully vaccinated by the 12th of March.”The COVID-19 Dashboard provides up-to-date information on the key indicators of COVID-19 in the community including daily data on Ireland’s COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.*County data should be considered provisional as the national Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting System (CIDR) is a dynamic system and case details are continually being validated and updated.Today’s cases, 5-day moving average of new cases, 14-day incidence rate per 100,000 population and new cases in last 14 days (as of midnight 21 March 2021) (incidence rate based on Census 2016 county population)last_img read more

USCG, US Navy Team Up to Conduct Training Operations Off Southern California

first_imgThe crew of the Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided-missile frigate USS Thach (FFG 43) returned to port, June 28 following five days at sea training and operating with U.S. Coast Guardsmen from the Coast Guard’s 11th District and the Pacific Tactical Law Enforcement Team (TACLET).Under Federal law, the Coast Guard is the only armed forces branch with maritime law enforcement authorities. Law Enforcement Detachment teams (LEDETs) deploy with the Navy in the Third Fleet area of operations to conduct and support maritime law enforcement, interdiction and security operations.“We are supporting law enforcement operations to curtail illegal drug and migrant smuggling in the region,” said Thach Executive Officer Lt. Cmdr. Lisa B. Hodgson. “Here our focus is interception, or at a minimum, disruption of these dangerous and destructive criminal activities.”The joint operation between the two branches has proven successful.“Recently, the Coast Guard embarked with the guided-missile frigate USS Rentz (FFG 46) coupled with an anti-submarine helicopter squadron light (HSL), seizing approximately 1,500 pounds, or 51 bales, of marijuana while detaining three suspected smugglers,” said Lt. Cmdr. John Schiller, Third Fleet’s future operations deputy and maritime homeland defense lead.“You have the world’s premier Coast Guard and the world’s premier Navy and we’re operating in the same environment intercepting illicit narcotics and migrants,” said 11th District Counter Drug Officer Lt. Peter Deneen.Both the Navy and the Coast Guard train together while at sea and benefit from one another’s resources and areas of expertise.“Navy ships and systems provide valuable support and resources to the overall interdiction effort. Our crews’ skills, ship’s systems and communications capabilities help the entire process from intelligence to surveillance to interception,” said Hodgson.“In the event of a pursuit, we shift tactical control of Navy ships from Third Fleet to the 11th District, raise a Coast Guard flag on the ship’s rigid-hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) and place a Coast Guard boarding team under Coast Guard authority,” said Deneen.“Our relationship with the Coast Guard is seamless,” said Thach Master-at-Arms 1st Class Jason E. Jones. “The Coast Guardsmen, who are all subject matter experts in vessel boarding and law enforcement, easily integrate with our Visit Board Search and Seizure (VBSS) team.”While the Coast Guard is much smaller, its unique legal authority to enforce maritime law makes it an invaluable interagency partner with the Navy.“We’re pretty happy with the results thus far and we just hope to expand our interoperability with the Coast Guard and we look for the opportunity to affect the maritime law enforcement operations in Southern California when and if available,” said Schiller.Thach Sailors also spent the week exercising total ship survivability while training Midshipmen, performing helicopter deck landing qualifications, submarine hunting and executing routine ship maintenance.Joint, interagency and international relationships strengthen U.S. Third Fleet’s ability to respond to crises and protect the collective maritime interests of the U.S. and its allies and partners.[mappress]Press Release, July 11, 2013; Image: US Navy USCG, US Navy Team Up to Conduct Training Operations Off Southern California View post tag: Defence View post tag: team View post tag: USCG View post tag: conduct Share this article Training & Education View post tag: US View post tag: Navy View post tag: Training View post tag: Defense View post tag: off View post tag: California View post tag: southern July 11, 2013 View post tag: Naval View post tag: Operations View post tag: up View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today USCG, US Navy Team Up to Conduct Training Operations Off Southern California last_img read more

USS Ashland rescues mariners adrift at sea for five months

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today USS Ashland rescues mariners adrift at sea for five months USS Ashland rescues mariners adrift at sea for five months View post tag: US Navy October 27, 2017 View post tag: USS Ashlandcenter_img US Navy amphibious dock landing ship USS Ashland (LSD 48) rescued two mariners who had been adrift at sea for five months following an engine casualty.The mariners, Jennifer Appel and Tasha Fuiaba, both from Honolulu, and their two dogs had set sail from Hawaii to Tahiti this spring.They had an engine casualty May 30 during bad weather but continued on, believing they could make it to land by sail.Two months into their journey and long past when they originally estimated they would reach Tahiti, they began to issue distress calls. The two continued the calls daily, but they were not close enough to other vessels or shore stations to receive them.On Oct. 24, they were discovered 900 miles southeast of Japan by a Taiwanese fishing vessel. The fishing vessel contacted Coast Guard Sector Guam who then coordinated with Taipei Rescue Coordination Center, the Japan Coordination Center, and the Joint Coordination Center in Honolulu to render assistance.Operating near the area on a routine deployment, Ashland made best speed to the location of the vessel in the early morning on Oct. 25 and arrived on scene at 10:30 a.m that morning. After assessing the sailboat unseaworthy, Ashland crew members brought the distressed mariners and their two dogs aboard the ship at 1:18 p.m.“I’m grateful for their service to our country. They saved our lives. The pride and smiles we had when we saw [U.S. Navy] on the horizon was pure relief,” said Appel.Appel said they survived the situation by bringing water purifiers and over a year’s worth of food on board, primarily in the form of dry goods such as oatmeal, pasta and rice.
