Photo: Ricardo Ortiz/Reuters[Episcopal News Service] Several churches in the Diocese of Puerto Rico have suffered severe damage from the series of earthquakes that have struck the island in recent days, killing at least one person and injuring at least eight.Hundreds of minor earthquakes have hit Puerto Rico’s southwest coast since Dec. 28, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, but a 5.8-magnitude quake on Jan. 6 and a 6.4-magnitude one on Jan. 7 destroyed buildings and shut down the island’s power grid, leading to a state of emergency declaration.Two of the diocese’s churches – Santa Cecilia in Guánica and San Juan Apóstol in Yauco – appear to be in danger of collapsing, according to the Very Rev. Mario Rodríguez, dean of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in San Juan and the diocese’s canon to the ordinary. Santo Nombre in Ponce and the Quinta Tranquila retreat center in Yauco also suffered major structural damage, Rodríguez told Episcopal News Service. Other church buildings had minor damage.“We have been monitoring the situation closely and tomorrow (Wednesday) a team from the Diocesan Center, including a structural engineer, will go to the affected areas to carry out a formal damage assessment and to coordinate relief efforts,” Rodríguez said by email. “Today, local teams began to distribute water and meals in affected areas. These efforts will be reinforced tomorrow by the team from the Diocesan Center.”Puerto Rico has endured a string of crises in recent years, from the devastation of Hurricane Maria in 2017 to a massive political scandal in 2019.“Today our Puerto Rico faces again the challenge of keeping calm and moving forward with faith and hope,” Rodríguez posted on the cathedral’s Facebook page. “Certainly, we are not newbies in this, but yes, vulnerable sons and daughters of God. We face with faith this expression of our nature and trust in the God who loves us and who we call father.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Cast-in-place concrete was used to create a series of robust structural boxes, each defining a different living space and focusing attention on the landscape.

Third Intifada in Palestine inspires world solidarity

first_imgOct. 19 — The heroic resistance of the Palestinian people, especially the youth, to the brutal onslaught of Zionist occupation forces, in and outside the military, continues in occupied Palestine. At least 43 Palestinians have been killed. Israeli attacks began escalating in early October, arousing resistance. Israeli military fired on Palestinians throwing stones at a border fence on Oct. 9, killing six and wounding two dozen others at a protest inside northern Gaza in solidarity with those resisting in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem. The same day, others were killed and wounded as individual racist Israelis and Palestinian resisters wrangled in various areas of occupied Palestine.An estimated 2,000 Palestinians and their supporters rallied in New York’s Times Square Oct. 18 on three days noticeand then marched passed by a small Zionist gathering.Photo: NY4PalestineThe Oct. 9 massacre caused the Hamas leader in Gaza to declare a third Intifada — popular uprising. That day at a mosque in Gaza City, Ismail Haniyeh exhorted in a sermon: “We are calling for the strengthening and increasing of the Intifada. It is the only path that will lead to liberation. Gaza will fulfil its role in the Jerusalem Intifada and it is more than ready for confrontation.” (Guardian, Oct. 9)On Oct. 18,  Israeli forces shot Palestinians throughout the West Bank and Gaza. The Ma’an News Agency described some of the events:“In the village of Tuqu east of Bethlehem, a Palestinian teenager was shot in the stomach by Israeli soldiers. … Witnesses said that more than 100 Israeli soldiers raided the village, after a military vehicle was set on fire by a Molotov cocktail. Israeli soldiers fired tear gas, stun grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets during the clashes, they said.“More Palestinians were reported injured in clashes in Bethlehem, Hebron, and Tulkarem. In al-Bireh, Israeli forces shot and injured Qays Imad Shujaiyeh, 12, in the thigh with live fire before detaining him. Six other Palestinians were shot and injured in clashes in the area. ChicagoWW photo: Jill White“Clashes also erupted in the Gaza Strip, with three Palestinians shot and injured with live rounds east of al-Buriej in central Gaza. Ashraq Qidra, a spokesman for Gaza’s Ministry of Health, told Ma’an that in addition to the three shot with life fire, several others suffered excessive tear gas inhalation and were treated on site.“Some 43 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the start of the month, and eight Israelis have died in attacks by Palestinians in the same period.“The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported that the second week of October saw the highest number of Palestinian deaths and injuries in the West Bank and Israel recorded in a single week since 2005.” Various accounts state more than 1,900 Palestinians have been injured.The hashtag #Intifada has grown widely on social media throughout the world. In cities across imperialist Europe, including London, Paris, Brussels and Copenhagen, demonstrations in solidarity with the Palestinian resistance have taken place and are still being organized. Johannesburg, Sydney, Melbourne and other cities across the world also had protests.U.S. protests: ‘Free, free Palestine!’Here in the United States, where taxpayers fork over more than $10.2 million per day (ifamericansknew.org) to apartheid Israel, demonstrations occurred as well. Workers World Party members and activists in affiliated organizations took part in many of them.  The night of Oct. 15, hundreds filled the sidewalks facing the Israeli Consulate in the financial district of San Francisco to demand an end to the continued brutal occupation of Palestine. The protest, organized by the General Union of Palestinian Students, urged supporters to “Rise with Palestine” and support the youth-led Intifada.Palestinian youth led the protest and rally in both English and Arabic. Chants of “When Palestine is occupied, resistance is not a crime!” brought cheers and loud support from rush-hour drivers passing through the district. The protest, co-sponsored by a broad coalition of Palestinian, anti-war, social justice and other groups, demanded the immediate return of Palestine to its 1948 borders and an end to the apartheid Israeli state. In Atlanta on Oct. 18, a speak-out, organized by Jewish Voices for Peace, was held in front of CNN headquarters.  New YorkWW photo: Brenda RyanIn New York City, the New York Campaign for the Boycott of Israel called another rally against Zionism Oct. 16 as Israel’s Idan Raichel was performing at Manhattan’s City Winery. He is among the targets of a Palestinian boycott  because he serves as an official cultural ambassador of the colonizer state and is an outspoken supporter of the Israeli army, according to Adalah-NY.  On Oct. 18, a counter-rally opposed a “Jewish Lives Matter” rally by Zionists. In addition to hijacking the Black Lives Matter slogan, the racists held a moment of silence for Israelis killed, with no regard for the disproportionate violence and death experienced by Palestinians every day under 60-plus years of occupation.Militant demonstrators in front of the Federal building in downtown Rochester, N.Y., withstood a torrential downpour on Oct. 16 to show support for Palestine and to protest the murder of Palestinian youth. The march was sponsored by local Palestinian activists, a large number of them youth, as well as the International Action Center, Christians Witnessing for Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace, and other religious and community organizations.Washington, D.C.WW photo: Cheryl LaBashCarrying signs that called for an end to U.S. aid to Israel and its occupation of Palestine, protesters chanted, “Free, free, Palestine, democratic Palestine!” and “Resistance is justified when oppressed people are occupied.”The demonstration moved to a downtown street corner where it was warmly received by passing motorists who loudly honked their horns.In Dearborn, Mich., a western suburb of Detroit, Palestinians, Muslims and Christians alike gathered Oct. 18 to stand with the oppressed and show solidarity with the people of Palestine who are fighting just to live in their homeland. Many of the protesters were young. A contingent of children, teens and other youth led hundreds in chanting in solidarity with the Intifada. Representatives from the Detroit progressive movement came from Workers World Party and the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War and Injustice. Abayomi Azikiwe, a MECAWI leader, was one of the rally speakers.More protests are planned to continue the struggle for a free Palestine. At the next Dearborn City Council meeting, activists will ask the city to divest from Israel.

Support for investigative reporter sued by nuclear power entrepreneur

We condemn the judicial harassment of this journalist.It is clear from the exorbitant amount of damages demanded by the plaintiff that the lawsuit’s aim is to reduce Minoru Tanaka to silence by crushing him morally and financially. The case has all the hallmarks of what is called a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation or SLAPP, one designed to prevent him from making any contribution to the public debate on the nuclear power industry. What marks this out as a SLAPP is the fact its target is an isolated individual, that the plaintiff is much more powerful than the defendant, both financially and politically, and that it is clearly designed to throttle its victim by means of prolonged judicial proceedings and the threat of a disproportionate damages award.Unfortunately, the plaintiff may already have achieved one of his goals. Even if the courts end up ruling against Shiro Shirakawa, many journalists who have watched this judicial retaliation against an investigative journalist could refrain in future from covering certain persons or issues because they think they are too “sensitive.” After the hearing on 9 July, Minoru Tanaka told Reporters Without Borders: “If I lose this fight, it will mean that no other journalist will later be able to write anything about the danger of the reopening nuclear reactor. (…) So this trial is very important for the future of all journalists.” It is therefore vital that all journalists should give Minoru Tanaka their active support. This lawsuit is not just targeting an individual. Through him, it is targeting all journalists in Japan, both freelancers and staffers.And given the harmful nature of this suit, Reporters Without Borders reiterates its appeal to the Tokyo district court to rule in Minoru Tanaka’s favour.

He had participated in the rioting between pro-democracy youths and the government-controlled Basij student militias that recently broke out on his campus.Many photos of these incidents have been posted on his blog, called “In the name of man, justice and truth”.
