MAY DAY 2016: IMMIGRANT AND BLACK LIVES MATTER!

first_imgThe two most militant movements currently powering struggles for progressive change in the United States provided leadership and activists to commemorations of May Day — the internationally recognized workers’ holiday — and turned out marchers by the thousands, coast to coast.The right of immigrants to live and work in this country without harassment and threats of deportation has been a major theme of May Day events since 2006, when millions walked off their jobs on May 1 in a stunning display of courage and militancy. This year, wherever there were large concentrations of immigrants, they again played leading roles in May Day demonstrations.It was primarily Black unionists and community activists who in 2005 revived May Day in the U.S. with a demonstration in Washington, D.C. This year the Black Lives Matter movement and other forces struggling against state repression, police violence and low wages were in the forefront of many marches and rallies.Family members of youth killed by police spoke at many events. Unions whose members are predominantly people of color turned out with their shirts and banners to underscore the struggle for higher wages and the need to organize the unorganized.Overall, May Day events were as diverse and multinational as is the working class itself in this country. All the cutting-edge issues were addressed, from the rights of women and LGBTQ people to solidarity with Palestine and demands of “U.S out of the Middle East.”The following reports, moving from West to East, help give the flavor and spirit of May Day 2016.Bay Area: Union solidarity with oppressedTwo militant, multinational May Day demonstrations were held in the Bay Area, one in Oakland led by Sin Fronteras and the other in San Francisco led by International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10.Some 1,000 people gathered at the Fruitvale Bay Area Rapid Transit Station in Oakland, where police killed Oscar Grant in 2009. They then marched for “Legalization, housing, education, and a living wage. No more raids or deportations! No gentrification! No more police violence — Black Lives Matter!”Cat Brooks, a leader of the Anti Police- Terror Project, recalled the murders of Grant and other Black youth: “There will be no more business as usual in the United States as long as this country is in the business of killing Black bodies.”Luis Angel, of the East Bay Immigrant Youth Coalition, spoke about the historic role of the immigrant community in reviving May Day. He noted that the government is responsible for more than “3 million deportations” and called for “unconditional legalization for everyone — no one will be left out in our community.”Pierre ­Labossiere, of the Haiti Action Committee, linked the struggle of the people of Haiti against police terror and gentrification with struggles in the Bay Area, identifying with the Black Lives Matter movement.Fast food workers from the Fight for $15 struggle and OUR Walmart filled the streets with chants and banners. Black, Latino/a and Asian families came out to watch and support.In San Francisco, ILWU Local 10 leader Clarence Thomas and Teamster leader Chris Silvera from New York recalled the long history of the labor movement in fighting police brutality. Silvera said that to end police brutality and murders, “the unions need to be in the forefront.”More than 400 people then marched from the union hall to Harry Bridges Plaza for a closing rally emceed by Cephus Johnson, uncle of Oscar Grant. Johnson called to the stage many people whose children had been murdered by police. Dionne Smith, mother of James Rivera, and her spouse recalled the extreme brutality of Stockton, Calif., police, who shot their son 48 times.Johnson noted that the turning point in the Oscar Grant case came when the Longshore union joined the fight and shut down Bay Area ports.— Judy GreenspanLos Angeles: No to ICE and police terror!Thousands marched from East Los Angeles to downtown led by unions, Black Lives Matter-LA and nonprofits working on immigration issues. Participants stopped at both the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Field Office to hit police and ICE terror. These protests were combined with calls for international solidarity.Many left forces marched with the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front contingent, including participants in the Workers World Party Senate and presidential campaigns. They joined in singing the International, which was played over loudspeakers by FMLN organizers, along with speeches from Fidel Castro and songs of liberation from El Salvador. The FMLN in Los Angeles has endorsed John Parker, Workers World’s candidate for U.S. Senate.— WW Los Angeles BureauSan Diego: ‘Stop poverty wages and Migra violence!’“Workers’ Rights Have No Borders” was the theme as hundreds gathered at San Diego City College for an opening rally and then marched several miles through the Barrio Logan neighborhood to historic Chicano Park for a closing rally. Signs and banners in English and Spanish voiced the concerns of the city’s working-class and poor communities, including the fight for $15 minimum wage and a union, justice for the missing students of Ayotzinapa, condemnation of Trump’s reactionary politics and the need to fight for socialism.The May Day Coordinating Committee’s points of unity included “Stop poverty wages and worker abuse,” “Stop police and Migra violence” and “Stop deportations and welcome refugees!” The program highlighted the history of May Day and its connection to struggles today. Cultural performers included the youthful Junkyard Dance Crew and Aztec Dancers.Speakers included representatives of the Service Employees Union, UNITE HERE Local 30, the California Faculty Association and Unión Del Barrio, as well as San Diego professor Dennis Childs, author of “Slaves of the State: Black Incarceration from the Chain Gang to the Penitentiary,” and María Puga, widow of Anastasio Hernández Rojas, who was kicked to death by several Border Patrol agents on May 28, 2010. While his death was caught on video and ruled a homicide, no criminal charges have been filed against the agents involved.Childs spoke about the huge immigrant detention center located nearby and ended with a call to “Free Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier and all political prisoners!” Gloria Verdieu, of Workers World Party, and Kiki Ochoa, of Unión Del Barrio, co-chaired both the City College and Chicano Park rallies.— WW San Diego BureauWisconsin: Youth of color in leadThousands marched in Milwaukee on May Day for immigrant and workers’ rights. Latino/a and other youth of color played a central role in the organizing and sent a clear message that resistance is building to the anti-immigrant and anti-worker Wall Street forces.The sponsors of May Day Milwaukee — Voces de la Frontera and Youth Empowered in the Struggle — mobilized members from multiple cities, K-12 schools and colleges in the state. They were joined by dozens of other labor, community and student organizations taking a stand against racist politicians like Scott Walker and Donald Trump, who push anti-immigrant, union-busting legislation on behalf of Wall Street. After a rally at the Voces office, the loud and militant protesters marched through the streets of Milwaukee to another rally at the County Courthouse.— WW Wisconsin BureauChicago: Solidarity Day and ‘Dump Trump’Thousands marched through Chicago led by drummers and dancers in brightly colored dress. The lead banner read “Human Rights for Immigrant Families.” At the monument commemorating the Haymarket Massacre, where May Day began, hundreds of union activists joined the march. A rally called by the Chicago Teachers Union and other progressive unions included speakers from the National Women in the Trades Conference. A woman plumber said, ”We women in the trades know what it is like to be oppressed and isolated. We must stand in solidarity with immigrant workers, the Fight for 15 and all workers fighting for a decent wage and a union.”At the Federal Building downtown, hundreds of Syrian activists and their supporters gathered to demand the U.S. get out of the Middle East. They joined the march to Trump Tower where there was a huge police presence. “Whose streets? Our streets” chanted the crowd, in a clear expression of the mass movement being built to fight the racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-immigrant warmongering represented by the Trump campaign.— J. WhiteDetroit: Many issues, one messageA diverse crowd celebrated May Day in downtown Detroit. A contingent of youth fighting for a $15 minimum wage and a union joined city of Detroit retirees demanding the courts overturn the theft of their pensions by recent bankruptcy proceedings. Flint activists brought a first-hand report on the continuing struggle against lead-poisoned water. A May Day message from Michigan political prisoner the Rev. Edward Pinkney got a warm response from the crowd. Other speakers addressed the continuing destruction of Detroit from mass water shutoffs and tax foreclosures. Attacks on public education and teachers’ unions were protested.Speakers from the Hispanic Workers Center spoke in Spanish about the many challenges faced by immigrant workers. A handful of anti-immigrant bigots showed up but were quickly confronted by a defense line, including youth from the Flint area. The bigots soon left. The rally ended with a march to Whole Foods, where the store was surrounded by activists demanding a boycott of Driscoll berries in solidarity with berry workers in Washington state.— David SoleNew York: No ICE, no racist policeSome 600 people braved the rain to celebrate May Day in Union Square. The day before, hundreds attended a May Day event in the South Bronx.Black Lives Matter signs filled Union Square, along with Palestinian, Ecuadorian and Brazilian flags. A long banner demanded human rights in the Philippines and signs demanded freedom for political prisoners Oscar López Rivera, Leonard Peltier and Mumia Abu-Jamal.Peoples Power Assembly signs declared, “No Workers’ Liberation without Black Liberation.” Many others denounced wage theft and demanded a $15 minimum wage. Signs and banners linked the struggle for LGBTQ rights with workers’ rights. Workers World ­Party presidential candidate Monica ­Moorehead reminded the crowd that May Day began in Chicago where workers fought for the eight-hour day in 1886.ICE-FREE NYC played a big role in building this year’s May Day, as did several Filipino organizations. A speaker from BAYAN denounced the April 1 massacre of peasants in Kidapawan, Philippines. A Brazilian speaker condemned the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff as an attempted coup. People then marched to Washington Square to join the Immigrant Worker Justice Tour of places where workers face special injustice.— Steve MilliesWW photos: New York City by Brenda Ryan; Los Angeles by Teresa Gutierrez; Oakland, Calif., by Judy Greenspan; Chicago by J.

Women’s Soccer Finally Wins on Road

Required fields are marked * Lancer Juliana Gurule (left) in action at a home game. She scored a goal and added an assist in Friday’s win at San Diego City College, image by Richard Quinton.The Pasadena City College women’s soccer team snapped a 17-match road winless streak (0-12-5) for the program with a 3-0 win at San Diego City Friday. The Lancers improved to 1-2 this season.PCC last won away from home back on Oct. 1, 2013 in a 3-0 victory at El Camino College (Torrance). The streak likely would have ended last year but the Lancers’ scheduled match at last-place El Camino-Compton Center was moved to PCC late in the season due to field issues in Compton. That October 24 game proved to be the last win by the Lancers last year as the program broke an 8-game winless string overall (0-7-1).Pasadena opened the scoring just six minutes into the game v. SDCC when frosh midfielder Juliana Gurule split the Knights’ defense with a pass that led to a breakaway goal by forward Alexis Acosta (Temple City HS). Gurule, from Maranatha High, then scored in the 28th minute assists by sophomore midfielder Rachel Schroeder and rookie defender Jasmin Rodriguez.The Lancers completed the scoring in the 32nd minute when frosh defender Kelly Youssef (Monrovia High) rocketed a 20-yard blast into the side corner of the net. PCC dominated throughout the match, outshooting San Diego, 20-5. Starting freshman goalie Monica Rogers only had to make two saves and reserve first-year goalie Natalie Martin played the final four minutes as the pair combined for the shutout.“We really got into a rhythm early and then played hard for each other for the entire 90 minutes,” said PCC head coach Reggie Rivas. “I think it was a big confidence boost for our team. We have talented kids, but we went up against a couple of tough teams to open the season.”The Lancers will be back in action on Friday, Sept. 18 when they make a trip to Mt. San Jacinto for a 4 p.m. non-conference game. First Heatwave Expected Next Week More Cool Stuff Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Subglacial bed properties from normal-incidence seismic reflection data

first_imgRecent applications of the normal-incidence seismic reflection technique to studying subglacial conditions are summarized. Some of the important aspects of the technique are discussed, including critical acquisition parameters and particular strengths and weaknesses. The main reason for deploying this technique, rather than other seismic methods, is that data acquisition is simpler and requires fewer resources. Current limitations of the technique include the inability to determine subglacial seismic velocities, uncertainty in the attenuation coefficient for ice, and assumptions of source repeatability. The reflection coefficient at the ice-bed interface is calculated from the energy reduction between primary and multiple reflections. From this, the acoustic impedance of the bed is derived and used to interpret the bed material. Beneath fast-flowing ice, dilatant, deforming sediment has been distinguished from a lodged sediment bed, using porosity as a proxy for sediment dilation. Subglacial water and permafrost have also been interpreted. Data from a number of locations can be used to develop a model of the basal conditions of a complete glacier. Results from sites on ice streams in West Antarctica show how the ice encounters a greater or lesser restraint to flow, from different basal conditions. Application to a glacier in the Arctic, suggests its most recent surge terminated when water escaped through discontinuous permafrost beneath the ice. Further glaciological questions that could be addressed using the technique are proposed.last_img read more

USA: New MA Apprenticeships on the Horizon

first_img View post tag: MA View post tag: New Training & Education USA: New MA Apprenticeships on the Horizon View post tag: Horizon View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: New MA Apprenticeships on the Horizon View post tag: Apprenticeships The Center for Security Forces (CENSECFOR) announced Aug. 17 that two new apprenticeship trade opportunities are in the works for Navy Security Force (NSF) personnel.The apprenticeship will be open to all E-4 and above in select rates or those with select Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) codes.It will also be open to U.S. Marine Corps Military Occupational Specialty (USMC MOS) personnel as well as U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) personnel.“The Armory Technician Apprenticeship (ATA) will be the first to emerge in the near future once Department of Labor approval is received,” said Jose Bautista, CENSECFOR Master-At-Arms (MA) program manager.The ATA will focus on personnel who are responsible for assigned arms, ammunition and explosives. This includes the skill areas of maintenance, inventory, safety, security, issuing and receiving of these items.The Criminal Investigator Apprenticeship (CIA) is CENSECFOR’s newest project with the United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP).“This is a coordinated effort by CENSECFOR with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS); the MA/NSF Community Sponsor; Type Commanders; and fleet subject matter experts,” said Bautista.The apprenticeship is designed for MA personnel having the military police investigator NEC 2002, as well as appropriate personnel in the USMC and USCG. “We are in the process of soliciting industry sponsors, which could take between 4-6 months,” said Bautista. “That means we are looking at the CIA becoming available sometime in 2013.”The forerunners to these two new apprenticeships have been highly successful since their debut. For example, the Security Specialist and the Police Officer I (Government Service) apprenticeships have some 1600 active enrollments each to date. “Sailors who earn these nationally recognized certifications will have had the opportunity to perform duties and gain experiences they may not otherwise have had,” said Bautista.The USMAP works closely with the DOL to provide nationally recognized apprenticeship programs that result in journeyman-level certificates of completion for members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.The Center for Security Forces provides specialized training to more than 22,000 students each year and has 14 training locations throughout the U.S. and around the world.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, August 20, 2012; Image: US Navy August 20, 2012 View post tag: ON View post tag: Naval View post tag: the Share this articlelast_img read more

HSwMS Carlskrona Conducts Medical Evacuation Exercise

When operating far away from hospitals and other necessary resources, the ships in the operation need to rely on the medical competence at sea.The Swedish warship HSwMS Carlskrona has a “Role 2LM” medical capacity. This means that the ship has the capability to perform stabilising surgery, damage control and perform intensive care for 2-3 patients, for up to 72 hours. There are 4 senior doctors and 7 nurses serving within the ship’s medical department.Earlier this month, HMS Carlskrona conducted an exercise practising a medical evacuation whilst at sea. One member of the ship’s company played the part of a sailor who had fallen badly, causing a broken pelvic bone with extensive bleeding inside the abdomen.After two days, once the patient is sufficiently stable, the decision is taken to move the patient to a hospital ashore for further care and rehabilitation. The medical department prepares the patient, and many of Carlskrona’s crew lend a helping hand to move the patient to the helicopter deck where the ship’s helicopter is waiting.“This time it was just an exercise. It is important to practice the organisation so that it works when, and if, it becomes a reality”, says Åke Karlbom, senior medical officer onboard HMS Carlskrona.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, April 23, 2013; Image: EU Navfor View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Exercise View post tag: HSwMS View post tag: Evacuation Back to overview,Home naval-today HSwMS Carlskrona Conducts Medical Evacuation Exercise View post tag: Navy View post tag: conducts Share this articlelast_img read more

Postgraduate access schemes to reach under-represented backgrounds

first_imgThis summer, more than 60 paid research internships will be available through the University’s graduate access programmes. They are offering projects in a wide range of subjects from physics, biochemistry and mathematics to geography and English literature. Feedback from the pilot year of UNIQ+ was “highly positive”, and this year the programmes have expanded. Following the success of the first UNIQ+ graduate access summer school, applications for UNIQ+ 2020 and the Wellcome Biomedical Vacation Scholarships are now open. Participants are paid around £2,500 and offered free accommodation provided by Oxford colleges for the seven-week science programme or four-week humanities programme. Nadia Pollini, Director of Graduate Admissions and Recruitment, said: “We have been delighted with the success of UNIQ+ in its first year and we are very excited to have the enthusiastic support of the University, its colleges and academic departments and institutes in expanding the programme this year. We strongly encourage anyone who might benefit from such an opportunity to look into what these programmes offer to students from under-represented backgrounds.” 60 places will be available for 2020 UNIQ+. This includes six projects in biomedical sciences funded through the Wellcome Biomedical Vacation Scholarship. This year, these two programmes will offer twice as many UK students from under-represented groups the opportunity to experience postgraduate research through fully paid research internships, it has been announced. The courses are open to those who would otherwise be prevented from pursuing postgraduate study because of socio-economic, or financial circumstances. David Gavaghan, Professor of Computational Biology and Director of the MPLS Graduate School, said: “The University’s success derives from its community of outstanding researchers and the world-leading research environment that supports them. We are really excited to be able to invite students from under-represented backgrounds to join this community for the summer and to experience this world-leading environment through UNIQ+. There is no typical Oxford experience or typical Oxford student. We want everyone who could benefit from our doctoral research programmes to consider us.” Oxford University has expanded its postgraduate access scheme to reach students from underrepresented backgrounds. UNIQ+ 2019 participant and University of Bristol student, Ellie Jarvis, said: “UNIQ+ was a unique insight into postgraduate life and a really valuable way to spend the summer; it pushes you out of your comfort zone and into a worldrenowned university that is often seen as inaccessible. In 2019, 33 students from across the UK attending UNIQ+. The University’s graduate access programmes offer opportunities for graduate students to undertake a research internship under the supervision of Oxford academics and with mentoring from current students. “Opportunities like this are still scarce but I am hopeful that this is changing. I believe that the University of Oxford’s UNIQ+ programme is pioneering a new era of research internship opportunities across universities so that all students can fulfil their passions.” Participants will attend a range of skills sessions, lectures and social events, as well as receiving information on the application process for graduate study and funding. In a statement, Oxford University said: “The University is committed to giving talented applicants of all backgrounds the chance to benefit from an Oxford education, regardless of their personal circumstances. Through initiatives like UNIQ+ the University of Oxford aims to increase the number of promising graduates from under-represented groups.”last_img read more
