first_imgU.S. Route 1, south of BaltimoreWithin hours of the start of the Poor People’s Campaign and March, which headed from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., on May 11, words had turned into action. Some hundreds of marchers defied Baltimore County cops who were blocking the way at a Walmart Supercenter in Halethorpe, Md.Most marchers wove their way past the police and made it to the doors of the mammoth retailer, where they shouted, “Walmart, union! Walmart, union!” and “Walmart, slave wages” as they blocked traffic in the parking lot. The police, who physically abused Black women marchers, made it clear they were there to protect Walmart’s “private property.”The crowd’s militancy and chants reflected a speech given at the kick-off rally hours earlier when Cindy Murray addressed the crowd from OUR Walmart — an organization of Walmart workers and supporters who are fighting for workers’ rights at the biggest, wealthiest employer in the U.S. She argued for the needs of the low-paid U.S. workforce at Walmart, while emphasizing solidarity with garment workers around the world who are paid next to nothing.In oppressed countries like Bangladesh, where more than a thousand workers died in April in a factory building collapse, the garment workers, mainly young women, are paid $37 a month for 12-hour days.The Poor People’s Campaign, which commemorates the 1968 Poor People’s March called by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is fighting for jobs and union rights for workers. Elliott and another OUR Walmart activist, Barbara Elliott, said the group is planning a march and caravan from May 28 to June 7 to Bentonville, Ark., culminating in an occupation at the site of Walmart’s corporate headquarters. (For more information about the march, see ForRespect.org.)Kick-off rally sets militant toneThe Rev. C. D. Witherspoon, president of the Baltimore chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, chaired the kick-off rally, which took place at the very site where the police beat Anthony Anderson Sr. to death. The Anderson family was recognized.Sharon Black, one of the key Baltimore march organizers, told people from the beginning that “rain or shine, the march would go on to fight for jobs and justice and against police brutality.”Don Cash was the opening speaker. He is president of the National Minority Coalition of the United Food and Commercial Workers union and national vice chair of the SCLC. Members of Local 400 of the UFCW attended. The march also garnered support from both the Washington, D.C., and Baltimore Central Labor Councils.With the Poor People’s March focusing attention on police brutality and terror, it was appropriate that the Justice for Alan Blueford group, including Jack Bryson, Mollie Costello and Jeralynn Blueford, made the trip from Oakland, Calif., to Baltimore. Blueford spoke of the police killing of her son, Alan Blueford, a year ago on May 6. Another speaker brought up the case of Joshua Robinson, an African-American youth brutalized in Providence, R.I.Meches Rosales from the May 1 Coalition in New York City expressed solidarity with the march by making the the connection between the mass incarceration of Black youth with the deportations of Brown people especially immigrants.A delegation from Selma, Ala., also joined the march. Their spokesperson, Rose Sanders, described an attack on voting rights in their area and explained what it means for the Black community in terms of loss of political representation.After the rally, despite a wet downpour, hundreds of people started off on foot or in a car caravan for the 41-mile trek to Washington, D.C. The spirited, multinational gathering was about two-thirds African American, with the rest evenly divided between Latino/a and white. They included seniors, children, people with disabilities and many constituencies. By late morning, they arrived at one of the many devastated Baltimore neighborhoods.The procession of cars and several hundred people marched through the neighborhood chanting, “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” and “No justice, no peace!” In the few homes that weren’t boarded up — as so many are in Baltimore City — people leaned out the windows to wave or shout their solidarity with the marchers, as did others on the street.The march went past a local post office to draw attention to the threat facing hundreds of thousands of postal workers and the neighborhoods they serve. A contingent of postal workers with a sound truck stopped in front of the office to explain the issues. Then the march passed City Hall, which was the site of a mass demonstration last year protesting the death of Trayvon Martin in Florida.The marchers then headed to College Park, Md., where they were greeted by students from the University of ­Maryland.WW photos: Brenda RyanFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgThe French railroad strike currently on two days out of five — two days strike followed by three days working, repeat — until the end of June has an obvious impact on commuters and travelers. Passengers hustle by the thousands up and down platforms to get on trains, which, if they come, are so crowded that not everyone fits.If the videos showing this traffic have a furtive, hasty aspect, it might be because the French National Railway Company (SNCF) management, which owns the television stations, only wants to allow pro-management news shown on TV. The SNCF bosses insist that TV crews have a SNCF minder to go with them or leave the premises.The SNCF is also playing “fool-you” regarding the level of participation in the strike. French workers, who have an individual, constitutional right to strike, don’t get paid for days they strike. If on an SNCF-worker’s weekend — their days off — they don’t file that they are on strike, they do get a day’s pay.Another trick of the SNCF bosses is to report the level of strike participation of all its workers, which is between 30 and 45 percent. They fail to report the rate for their operating personnel — those who make the trains run. This is much higher, from 70 to 85 percent.Two other major economic impacts are in the areas of tourism and freight.In 2017, tourism directly contributed about 83 billion euros to the French gross domestic product. Hotel industry spokespeople have estimated that the SNCF strike has cut tourism by 10 percent. This cut is a tremendous blow to industry profits.The other major economic impact is to freight. The SNCF has privately owned competitors for its freight business, which control about 40 percent of the market. The strike also hits these competitors because the workers who control all the signals — including those the freight lines need — are members of the unions on strike.One firm, Lahaye Global Logistics, which runs a daily, round-trip rail freight service between Rennes and Lyon, said it would lose 20,000 euros for each strike day because it would have to shift from rail to trucks. Grain exporters and bulk chemical firms also face significantly higher costs.

Purplebricks launches aggressive attack on traditional agents in OzLocal TV celebrity John Du Bois is recruited to front TV campaign that paints traditional agents as preening, Porsche-driving ‘commission collectors’.Nigel Lewis23rd January 20191 Comment1,992 Views Purplebricks’ Australian business has launched a direct attack on traditional estate agents in Oz with a campaign fronted by the country’s answer to Phil Spencer, property pundit Barry Du Bois (pictured, above).In the UK the company may have only made indirect references to its traditional rivals, but in Australia the gloves are well and truly off.After being appointed as the company’s brand ambassador, Du Bois has joined Purplebricks in an all-out assault on local fee levels, which the 58-year-old says are ‘frustratingly’ high.He told local media yesterday that: “As a nation, we need to challenge the concept of a commission in real estate,” he says.“The argument that agents can only do their job well if they are excessively remunerated just doesn’t stack up.“The commission-collecting model hasn’t changed for thirty years at a time when technology has rapidly transformed the industry. Every month millions of Australians visit realestate.com.au and Domain so the days of relying on an agent’s black book of contacts are over.”His comments are part of a campaign by Purplebricks including a revamped website, banner ads and a TV campaign fronted by Du Bois.During the advert traditional agents in Oz are depicted as self-absorbed, preening, Porsche-driving ‘commission collectors’.“Since launching, we have saved Australians over $50 million in commission fees,” says Neil Tavender, CEO of Purplebricks in Australia (left).“This campaign is about educating Australians about the real estate industry’s archaic business model that only benefits agents.” January 23, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentSam Samuel, Edward Ashdale Edward Ashdale 23rd January 2019 at 9:01 amThe benefit of High Street agencies is they do work harder to achieve more money. Plus, when the market becomes challenging you cannot rely on portals to get interest in homes.Local knowledge, good contact with buyers on database and experienced progressors to deal with stick issues and manage chains also return value.And let’s not forget these agents that want to work self-employed for online businesses are usually failed EAs or lazy ones that want an easier life whilst yes you’ve guessed it… earning a decent living from taking fees upfront with no guarantee of the vendor getting a result.Bring it on here.

Having that in mind, the Russian government has allocated five trillion rubles ($156 bln) or a quarter of the entire armament procurement budget until 2020 for the purpose.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , May 29, 2012last_img read more

first_imgOxford City Council has approved plans for a 300-bed student complex to be built in Headington for Oxford Brookes students, despite fierce opposition from local residents.The student accommodation will be built on the former Dorset House School site on London Road, in close proximity to retirement flats and a nursing home. When plans were announced, the council received numerous complaints regarding potential noise pollution in the area.The chief concerns centred around a potential clash of lifestyles between the students and local residents. The residents of nearby retirement flats have an average age of 86. Fears were expressed that the process of building the three- and four-storey buildings and introduction of students to the area would disrupt the quiet for the elderly residents in the area.Whilst in accordance with city planning regulations, students will not be allowed to park cars in the area. Residents have voiced discontent with students potentially parking in streets that do not enforce residents\’ parking permits. Concerns have also been aired of student cyclists posing a threat to the elderly residents.Other complaints relate to the design of the buildings, which have been labelled \’overbearing\’ and \’an eyesore.\’However, Brookes university regards the site as a good location for halls of residence as it is situated between Oxford Brookes and the Headington shops. Residents have been assured that wardens will be on site twenty four hours a day, to quell any drunken or rowdy behaviour and prevent sleepless nights for neighbours.A spokesperson for Oxford City Council said, \”We consider all planning applications on their individual merits. We take in concerns and comments from residents through the consultation process.\”In addition we assess proposals against our planning policies that we have to follow when granting or refusing planning permission. In this case the Council decided that there were important benefits in providing student flats to help reduce the number of students sharing in family housing and that the possible impacts on adjacent residents could be suitably controlled by using planning conditions.\”The issues regarding the new halls of residence appear to confirm an increasing sense amongst local people and home-owners that Oxford is effectively becoming a \’student ghetto,\’ overrun by members of the city\’s two universities.One Brookes student said, \”I can understand the concerns of locals with regards to a clash of lifestyles, as it is common knowledge that halls produce a lot of noise pollution, especially in contrast to a retirement home. It is important to note the necessity of a quiet and calm environment in respect to the well-being of members and staff at the retirement homes.\”However she noted that, \”Oxford is home to one of the oldest universities in the word, therefore the city shall and always will be dictated by its student population\’s lifestyle and needs.\”Âlast_img read more
