Cuba Solidarity conference pushes actions

first_imgSaturday plenary listens to Newark, N.J., Mayor Ras Baraka. Sandra Ramirez, ICAP Gerardo Hernandez Ambassador Anayansi Rodríguez Supporters of revolutionary Cuba gathered at Fordham University Law School in New York on the weekend of March 24-26 to demand an end to all U.S. economic, financial and travel sanctions against the socialist island.The National Conference for the Full Normalization of U.S.-Cuba Relations also demanded, through plenaries and workshops, that the U.S. get out of Guantanamo, an illegally occupied part of Cuba where the Pentagon imprisons and tortures its opponents, and stop all regime change programs against Cuba.In opening remarks, Ike Nahem from the New York/New Jersey CubaSi! Coalition called for a moment of silence to honor people’s lawyer Lynne Stewart and Cuba’s historic leader Fidel Castro, who both died recently.Standing ovations greeted two heroes at the conference: Puerto Rican independence fighter Rafael Cancel Miranda and Andres Gomez from the Antonio Maceo Brigade. Gomez has organized support for the Cuban revolution in Miami, a stronghold of often violent counterrevolutionaries. Underscoring the international scope of the conference, Canadian Network on Cuba co-chair Isaac Saney and other Canadians participated.Featured speakers included many well-known Cubans. Anayansi Rodríguez Camejo, Cuba’s ambassador to the United Nations, led the delegation from the Cuban U.N. Mission in New York. Representatives from the North American department of the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) included its director, Sandra Ramirez, and Yanela González.A special participant from Cuba was Miguel Barnet, a revered writer on the history of race in Cuba, president/founder of Cuba’s Union of Writers and Artists, and author of “Biografía de un cimarrón” (“Biography of a Runaway Slave”). A delegation from the Federation of Cuban Women and the Women’s International Democratic Federation participated in plenary discussions and workshops.Unfortunately, representatives of the Union of Young Communists and the Cuban Workers Central Union had received their U.S. visas too late to attend.‘What more can we do?’In the opening plenary Sandra Ramirez of ICAP summarized the tasks before the conference in two questions: “Why is this meeting so important?” and “What more can we do in solidarity with Cuba?”Ramirez emphasized the importance of “an inclusive solidarity movement where unity prevails. Those who respect the right of self-determination of the Cuban Revolution, respect our people and our sovereignty, should be welcome in the solidarity network. The diversity of sectors, background, ages and cities is a way to strengthen the movement and open possibilities of reaching areas that have had almost no contact with Cuba.”She stressed that the campaign to lift the blockade must be focused inside the United States because that is who has imposed the blockade. “Cuba has not imposed any blockade or restriction policies on any country in the world,” she added. “We should multiply the demand to return to Cuba the territory illegally occupied by the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo, to denounce the illegal radio transmissions to Cuba and end the promotion of regime change programs aimed to promote subversive actions in Cuba.”Ramirez spoke of the Days of Action Against the Blockade to take place in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 11-16, emphasizing that while the U.S. blockade is the main obstacle to Cuba’s development, it also has consequences for people in the U.S.Radio, television, print media and social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and blogs can counter the media campaign against Cuba and, she added, “should attract young people to this movement, because their fresh ideas will help us multiply the experience you all have accumulated. But we should speak their language and use their codes on social networks. They are eager to know more about Cuba.”Ramirez expressed solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the fight for the rights of immigrants and Latinx people here in the U.S., as well as “the struggle of the Puerto Rican people, because we consider that the Puerto Rican people should be independent and free. Cuba celebrates the moment when Oscar [Lopez Rivera] will be back in Puerto Rico on May 17 and hope to have him in Cuba soon.”Ambassador Rodriguez stressed “the sovereign right of the Cuban people to self-determination. It is a right respected by the Charter of Human Rights and international law. Part of that is our right to preserve our prosperous and sustainable socialist country. We are a socialist country and we will continue to be a ­socialist country.“To have one party, the Cuban Communist Party, is a historic decision,” she said, preceded by “the Cuban Revolutionary Party formed by our national hero Jose Marti, who realized that the only way for Cuba to achieve independence was to unite all the forces fighting for liberation. The Cuban people have been united and led by our Communist Party. … The member states of the United Nations say very clearly there is no unique model of democracy; each country has the sovereign right to determine its political, economic and social model. Cuba has decided to have a socialist model with internationalism and solidarity.”Rodriguez dispelled the illusion that having diplomatic relations with the U.S. means normalized relations. She pointed out that the U.S. still restricts travel to Cuba and that the blockade is still in place.An important second plenary panel featured Newark Mayor Ras Baraka and Marietta Ulacia, executive director of the Afro-Latin Jazz Alliance. The day after the conference, Baraka led a delegation from his city to Cuba.Solidarity actions for CubaThe final plenary supported ongoing projects, including the IFCO/Pastors for Peace caravan across the U.S. in April and its challenge to the travel ban in July; the 28th Venceremos Brigade travel challenge; and the newly established RESPECT organization that promotes ethical travel to Cuba. The plenary also adopted a call for united action against the blockade on the 17th of each month and coordinated actions in the days leading up to the United Nations vote next fall. For decades the U.S. had voted against resolutions calling for an end to the blockade, but abstained for the first time in 2016.The closing plenary featured a video message from Gerardo Hernández, a former political prisoner in the U.S. who was freed on Dec. 17, 2014, at the time diplomatic relations were restored. Hernández, who had been serving two life terms plus 15 years, said he is now free in Cuba through “the power of solidarity.”Wayne Smith, a former chief of mission at the U.S. Interests Section in Havana from 1979 to 1982, sent a message on the importance of the conference “to help discourage any thought on the part of the new administration to move back in the opposite direction.”A Saturday night rally to fight the blockade of Cuba featured Rafael Cancel Miranda and Andres Gomez. Drumming, dance and jazz cultural contributions celebrated the day’s work and discussion. Juanita Young, whose son Malcolm Ferguson was killed by New York City police in 2000, shared her impressions of a visit to Cuba last year at the invitation of the Federation of Cuban Women. This African-American mother’s warm feelings toward Cuba mirrored those of the special panel featuring Newark Mayor Ras Baraka and Marietta Ulacia.Live streaming of the event by videographers and streamers from the Peoples Video Network and the All-African Peoples Revolutionary Party are available at youtu.be/qOZjYJOadMY (first plenary); youtu.be/TEK4Z04D84A (Cuban Ambassador to U.N. answers question on Palestine, economic situation and blockade); youtu.be/Zm-R4xneMsg (evening rally).Photos: Brenda Ryan and Jon FlandersFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thiscenter_img Yanela González, ICAP Juanita Young Rafael Cancel Miranda, left, Andrés Gómez, right.last_img read more

Crop Insurance Caps Would Have Unintended Consequences for All Farmers

first_img Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 14, 2017Next articleCensky’s Legacy at ASA Makes Him a Perfect Fit for Deputy Secretary Hoosier Ag Today Home Indiana Agriculture News Crop Insurance Caps Would Have Unintended Consequences for All Farmers Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Crop Insurance Caps Would Have Unintended Consequences for All Farmers By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 14, 2017 Means testing measures like adjusted gross income (AGI) limits would have unintended consequences for all farmers and be detrimental to the long–term viability of crop insurance, warns Rodney Weinzierl, executive director of the Illinois Corn Growers Association, in a recent Agri-Pulse audio interview.Weinzierl stressed that arbitrary limits to the crop insurance program—whether in the form of a Farm Bill amendment or as part of the President’s budget—would not just strike the biggest farms, but instead hit at all family farmers.”Having an amendment that is going to affect everybody that is over 600 … acres — that’s not hitting the large farmers, that’s hitting 90 percent of the farmers,” Weinzierl explained.In addition, capping the discounts farmers receive on premiums they pay for coverage could affect the crop insurance program’s participation levels, which currently include all 50 states and 90 percent of America’s farmland.”A lot of farmers will probably just walk away from the program or get a very low coverage level,” Weinzierl said.That would be particularly disastrous now that crop insurance has evolved to become the cornerstone of the farm safety net. If coverage shrinks, Congress could again find itself doling out ad hoc disaster dollars after floods and droughts. And unlike crop insurance, those disaster programs would be 100 percent funded by taxpayers.In conclusion, Weinzierl pointed out that these kinds of restrictions would harm more than just Midwest farmers. He referenced the vegetable and fruit crop arena as an example, noting that because these farms are usually very large and take more capital, many would be hit by AGI limits.”You could take [farmers out] of the risk pool…and that policy wouldn’t even be viable potentially to be offered to the rest of the farmers who need it,” Weinzierl said. He was describing an insurance concept known as the “risk pool,” whereas premiums become cheaper as more people are insured. Remove participants, and there are fewer people to spread risk among, which increases premiums for everyone who remains. Farm policy supporters often note that excluding the largest, most-established farms from crop insurance would be like removing the safest drivers from the auto insurance pool.last_img read more

Ag Groups Urge USDA to Establish Foot-and-Mouth Disease Vaccine Bank

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Ag Groups Urge USDA to Establish Foot-and-Mouth Disease Vaccine Bank Facebook Twitter Representatives of the National Pork Producers Council, the National Milk Producers Federation, the National Corn Growers Association and Iowa State University today called on the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to move as quickly as possible to establish a Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) vaccine bank.At a press conference Tuesday, these groups recognized the steps USDA has taken to establish the bank, but called for expedient use of mandatory funding included in the 2018 Farm Bill to purchase the volume of vaccines required to effectively contain and eradicate an FMD outbreak. Currently, the USDA, which has prescribed vaccination for dealing with an FMD outbreak, does not have access to enough vaccine to avoid devastating economic consequences to the U.S. economy, should an outbreak occur.FMD is an infectious viral disease that affects cloven-hooved animals, including cattle, pigs and sheep; it is not a food safety or human health threat. The disease is endemic in many parts of the world and would have widespread, long-term fallout for livestock and crop agriculture, including the immediate loss of export markets. According to Iowa State University research, an outbreak would result in $128 billion in losses for the beef and pork sectors, $44 billion and $25 billion, respectively, to the corn and soybean farmers, and job losses of more than 1.5 million across U.S. agriculture over 10 years.“If the U.S. had a large outbreak of FMD, it may be impossible to control without the rapid availability of adequate supplies of vaccine,” said Dr. James Roth, a professor in the department of Veterinary Microbiology and Preventative Medicine at Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, during today’s press conference.  “The U.S. vaccine bank is our best insurance policy to respond to an FMD outbreak in the United States. As with most insurance policies, we hope to never use it, but it’s paramount that we have fast access to enough vaccine if we ever need it. The funding provided in the 2018 Farm Bill provides a good start toward building up a more robust FMD vaccine stockpile to help protect American agriculture,” he added.“U.S. pork producers and other farmers are currently faced with a wide range of challenges, including export market uncertainties, flooding and other weather events,” said NPPC Chief Veterinarian Liz Wagstrom. “Unlike challenges beyond our control, a solution for FMD preparedness is in our grasp. We urge USDA to move as quickly as possible to establish the bank.”“Livestock is a very important customer for U.S. corn farmers and each is crucial to the success of the other,” said Sarah McKay, director of Market Development at the National Corn Growers Association. “A foreign animal disease outbreak would have an estimated $4 billion a year impact on corn farmers, which would be disastrous on top of current market conditions. In addition, an outbreak may also impact exports of animal ag products. On average, pork exports contribute 28 cents a bushel to the price of corn, so the control of infectious diseases via a vaccine bank is important not only to livestock producers but corn growers as well.”“The time to build a best-in-class FMD Vaccine Bank is now,” said Jamie Jonker, Ph.D., vice president for Sustainability & Scientific Affairs at the National Milk Producers Federation. “NMPF has been active in informing our members and the dairy community of the importance of preparation, and a vaccine bank is a crucial element of protection for the entire livestock industry. We are excited to work with other stakeholders and with USDA to reach this goal.”Source: National Pork Producers Council SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 1, 2019 SHARE Previous articleFarmer Sentiment Regarding Current Conditions Slips in SeptemberNext articleCould a Line of Credit Help Your Operation?

Cal quarterback shines in Amon Carter Stadium

Collier Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ printUniversity of California Berkeley quarterback Jared Goff made history at Amon G. Carter Stadium on Tuesday.Goff, playing in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, broke Armed Forces Bowl and Pac-12 passing records after racking up an incredible six touchdown passes and 467 passing yards in California’s 55-36 victory over the Air Force Academy.“The sky might be low in terms of description,” said Air Force Head Coach Troy Calhoun said. “He is one heck of a player.”Air Force and its triple-option offense pounded Cal on the first drive of the game, calling 11 running plays for 68 yards, the last one ending in a 1-yard touchdown run by junior running back Jacobi Owens.Cal answered with a balanced seven play (four rushing plays, three passing plays), 65-yard scoring drive that ended with a one-yard touchdown run by sophomore running back Vic Enwere. Sophomore running back Tre Watson keyed the scoring drive with a 32-yard run.After an Air Force punt near the end of the first quarter, Goff and company only needed two plays to find the end zone and take the lead, 14-7. Goff completed two passes to senior wide receiver Bryce Treggs, one for 17 yards and a touchdown pass that went for 30 yards. Treggs redeemed himself on the drive after dropping what appeared to an easy touchdown catch on the previous drive.Air Force started the second quarter by tying the game at 14 with a five-play, 59-yard scoring drive, which ended in a 16-yard touchdown run by sophomore wide receiver Tyler Williams.Midway through the second quarter, Goff led the Golden Bears on a seven-play, 81-yard touchdown drive. The last two plays of the drive covered 45 yards — a 40-yard completion to senior wide receiver Maurice Harris and a 5-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Darius Powe to put California up 21-14. Powe finished the game with four catches, 70 receiving yards and two touchdown catches.The Golden Bears wouldn’t give up the lead again, and they would go on to set the Armed Forces Bowl record for most first half points with 35. Goff’s four touchdown passes tied the Armed Forces Bowl record for most touchdown passes in the first half.Cal set the Armed Forces Bowl record for most first half points with 35, and Goff’s four touchdown passes tied the Armed Forces Bowl record for most touchdown passes in the first half.Goff continued to look at ease coming out of the locker room, as he notched his fifth touchdown pass to start the third quarter. Goff’s five touchdown passes and 377 yards passing set new Armed Forces Bowl records with 26 minutes remaining in the game.Following a 69-yard Air Force touchdown drive, Goff led the Golden Bears on a three-play, 61-yard scoring drive to end the third quarter. Goff completed a 41-yard strike to Treggs and a 25-yard passing touchdown to Lawler. The junior quarterback’s sixth touchdown pass of the game increased Cal’s lead to 52-29.Treggs finished the game with four catches, 143 receiving yards, and a touchdown catch, and Lawler finished the game with five catches, 75 receiving yards and three touchdown catches.After Cal’s scoring drive to end the third quarter, Goff became the Pac 12 single-season record holder for touchdown passes with 43, passing former Oregon quarterback and 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota. Goff also set the Pac 12 single-season record for passing yards with 4,719.Cal secured its first eight-win season since 2009, as the Golden Bears finished the year 8-5. Cal is now 7-2 all-time against Air Force.“Winning eight games and finishing with a bowl victory, it’s really as much as you could ask for,” Goff said. “And it’s been a lot of fun.”In terms of his future, Goff said he’s going to have a discussion with his parents and “should know soon” whether or not he will leave Cal for the NFL or return for his senior season.Air Force is now 1-9 at Amon G. Carter Stadium, with five losses coming against TCU. The other three losses came in the Armed Forces Bowl. Twitter Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

News PakistanAsia – Pacific June 2, 2021 Find out more to go further News News The crackdown launched by the government and army on 3 November is above all targeting lawyers, judges, opposition politicians, human rights activists and journalists. Five photographers and cameramen were released in Karachi on 6 November, while Imtiaz Alam, a newspaper journalist and head of the press freedom organisation SAFMA, was released in Lahore after being held for more 30 hours.”We support the Pakistani media that are refusing to comply with the censorship imposed by Gen. Pervez Musharraf on 3 November,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The independence of its newspapers, radio stations and TV stations is one of Pakistan’s greatest assets and must be defended at all cost. We call on the authorities to stop intimidating the press and to rescind the two media ordinances that were adopted at the same time as the state of emergency.”Gen. Musharraf has been on the Reporters Without Borders list of press freedom predators since 2004.The main journalists and media groupings – the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists, the All Pakistan Newspapers Society, the Council of Pakistan Newspapers Editors, the Pakistan Broadcasters Association and the South Asia Free Media Association – have announced a national campaign for the repeal of the ordinances that amended the print and broadcast media laws.Several Pakistani media have reported that the information ministry’s Press Information Department (PID) has created a special bureau with instructions to monitor the 21 national dailies and 13 leading regional newspapers to see that they respect the censorship rules introduced in the new print media ordinance.The newspapers under surveillance include the Daily Times, Dawn, The News, Pakistan Observer, Jang, Ausaf, Khabrian and Jinnah. The regional governments have reportedly also been instructed to monitor compliance with the ordinance, which includes a ban on reports that are hostile to the president and the armed forces. The Daily Times said the PID is supposed to send a report at 4 p.m. every day to the head of the ministry’s Home Publicity department.Police barred access on 6 November to the Peshawar Press Club, where government opponents wanted to hold a news conference. “A sizable group of police officers took up position outside the club and no one was able to enter,” the club’s president, Muhammad Riaz, told Reporters Without Borders. “No one has been able to address Peshawar’s journalists since 5 November.” Police also barred access to the press club in Faisalabad.The Karachi Union of Journalists (KUJ) confirmed on 6 November that the authorities had released the five journalists arrested the previous day outside the city’s press club. KUJ president Shamin-ur-Rehman told Reporters Without Borders that the police registered a complaint against Mohammed Mohsin of Indus TV, Shariq Ahmed of the newspaper Khabrian, Nazeer Khan of the daily Nawa-i-Waqt, Fazal-ur-Rahman of the newspaper Mehshar and Asghar Shah of Aaj TV in which they were accused of “attempted murder” and “banditry.”Alam, the secretary-general of the SAFMA and a senior member of the staff of The News daily newspaper, was held overnight after his arrest in Lahore on 5 November and was released the next day.Around 10 reporters and photographers were roughed up and arrested by police in the southwestern city of Quetta while covering an opposition demonstration on 5 November. Nazeeruddin Siddique, a photographer with the Nation daily newspaper, was arrested by police the same day in Karachi. Reporters Without Borders has not yet confirmed if he has been released.Journalists were also beaten and insulted by police while covering a demonstration by lawyers in Rawalpindi, near the capital. Photographer Muhammad Javed had two of his fingers broken by a policeman, who also took the memory card from his digital camera.A pro-Taliban organisation has meanwhile threatened to bomb the Jang press group for publishing photos of “young women.” The group’s chief executive, Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman, said he had also been the target of a murder attempt and death threats by jihadist groups based in Karachi.Independent TV stations can still be seen on the Internet although, according to a Gallup poll, only 15 per cent of Pakistanis have a connection. There has been a marked increase in visits to the website of Geo TV, the first television station in Pakistan to broadcast independent news programmes. It is now reportedly receiving more than 1 million visits a day.Sales of newspapers, especially issues with supplements on the state of emergency, have also soared since the ban was imposed on privately-owned radio and TV stations. The BBC World Service has increased the number of its Urdu-language news programmes, which can still be received on the short wave but no longer on FM, as the army closed the FM 103 station on 3 November.– April 21, 2021 Find out more Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire Help by sharing this information Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists Follow the news on Pakistanlast_img read more
