Inflation is expected to rise even further early in 2011 due to the rise VAT, and has been well above its two per cent target for over a year.The ONS said the biggest drivers of inflation last month were air transport, fuel, utility and food bills. Fuel cost s rose at their fastest annual rate since July, and food prices showed their biggest annual rise since May 2009.Oil prices are fast approaching $100 a barrel, far higher than the Bank assumed when it made its November Inflation Report forecasts.The Bank had forecast inflation would average around 3.2 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2010, although more recently policymakers said it could even hit four per cent early in 2011, due to January’s rise in value added tax.Last week the Bank left interest rates on hold at their record low of 0.5 per cent. Policymakers had an early estimate of Tuesday’s data when they made their decision.Monetary Policy Committee member Paul Fisher said in an interview published on Tuesday that inflation was “very uncomfortable,” but that the Bank had to look through the short-term factors pushing up prices, however unpopular that may be.The retail price inflation gauge, which includes more housing costs and is the benchmark for many wage deals picked up to 4.8 per cent from 4.7 per cent, in line with expectations, and the highest since July 2010. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Church and its refugee resettlement affiliates in Texas have condemned Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s recently announced decision to block resettlement of refugees in the state as the Trump administration steps up its efforts to hollow out the federal government’s 40-year-old resettlement program.President Donald Trump ordered a new rule this year that makes refugee resettlement conditional on local consent, allowing states and municipalities to opt out of receiving refugees in their communities. More than 40 governors, of both parties, have consented or said they would consent to continuing the program in their states, but Abbott, a Republican, announced Jan. 10 that he would end refugee resettlement in Texas.“Texas has carried more than its share in assisting the refugee resettlement process,” Abbott said in his letter to the State Department informing it of his decision. “Texas has been left by Congress to deal with disproportionate migration issues resulting from a broken federal immigration system.”Episcopal Migration Ministries, or EMM, is one of nine agencies with federal contracts to resettle refugees in the United States. Of the 13 affiliates around the country that partner with EMM to conduct that work, two are in Texas: Refugee Services of Texas in Austin and Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston, both in the Diocese of Texas.They and other agencies that resettle refugees in Texas are calling on Abbott to reverse his decision before the policy takes effect on June 1.“Texas has been a leader in providing safety, fresh starts and open hearts for thousands of the world’s most vulnerable children, mothers and fathers since the U.S. refugee resettlement program began,” Refugee Services of Texas CEO Russell Smith said in a written statement. “We stand with thousands of Texas employers who hire refugees, partner organizations, faith-based groups, such as churches, and the most loyal, committed and devoted volunteers in the nation who are deeply hurt by the Governor’s decision.”The Episcopal Church issued a statement on Jan. 11 affirming its commitment to refugees and the agencies in Texas that assist them.“Texans have long been known for their southern hospitality and generosity of spirit,” the church said in its statement. “Additionally, many Texans are people of strong faith who take seriously the Gospel call to welcome the stranger and to help those who are fleeing religious persecution and violence. The Episcopal community in Texas shares these values.”The state has a “long tradition of welcoming refugees,” Diocese of Texas Bishop Andrew Doyle said in an emailed statement. “Refugee resettlement embodies our Christian commitment to assisting those in need. Let us continue to pray for those seeking refuge in our state, that they might find safety and hospitality.”EMM has resettled nearly 100,000 refugees since the 1980s, providing a range of services for these families upon their arrival in the United States, including English language and cultural orientation classes, employment services, school enrollment and initial assistance with housing and transportation.“We stand with our faith and community partners in opposition to this decision,” EMM communications manager Kendall Martin said by email. “We remain committed to uplifting new Americans and standing for welcome.”In addition to requiring local consent, the Trump administration limited the number of refugees to be resettled in this fiscal year to 18,000, a historic low and a sharp reduction from the 30,000 who were resettled in the United States in the previous year. For most of the past two decades, that cap had remained between 70,000 and 90,000, and President Barack Obama raised it to 110,000 during his final year in office.The uncertainty caused by the dramatic shift in refugee policy under Trump has challenged the operations of EMM and the other eight resettlement agencies, which include Church World Service, International Rescue Committee and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. This year, they have been granted contract extensions only until June, Martin said. Then, the State Department may decide to renew all nine contracts, or it may end its work with some of the resettlement agencies.Whatever happens to the agencies’ contracts, refugee resettlement is poised to end in Texas. Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston said on its Facebook page it was “very disappointed” by Abbott’s decision, and the agency vowed to press the governor to reconsider.The changes to the refugee resettlement program are the latest developments in the Trump administration’s ongoing effort to limit and reduce both legal and illegal immigration into the United States, a policy platform that was a central part of his 2016 campaign.Smith, the Refugee Services of Texas CEO, noted in his statement that Abbott was adding to the “ongoing confusion between illegal immigration and border security and the American refugee resettlement program.”Syrian refugee Ahmad al Aboud and his family members, on their way to be resettled in the United States as part of a refugee admissions program, walk to board their plane in Amman, Jordan, in 2016. Photo: ReutersRefugees face “the most stringent vetting process in the world,” Smith said. “Refugees who arrive in the U.S. have legal documentation, have been fully vetted and security screened, and represent one of the most resilient, hard-working, entrepreneurial, and successful segments of the population.”The refugees who are resettled in the United States typically are fleeing war, persecution and other hardships in their home countries. The Episcopal Church first began assisting refugees in the 1930s and 1940s through the Presiding Bishop’s Fund for World Relief, supporting people from Europe fleeing the Nazis. Under the State Department’s program, EMM once oversaw 31 resettlement affiliates in 26 dioceses, but now that number is down to 13 affiliates in 11 dioceses.The Episcopal Church’s General Convention regularly expresses its support for refugee resettlement, most recently when it met in 2018 in Austin. There, it passed a resolution that included a measure calling on governments “to expand refugee resettlement as a humanitarian response that offers individuals safety and opportunity.”“Refugees bring immense value to communities throughout Texas,” The Episcopal Church said in its Jan. 11 statement. “They have invigorated the economy, brought innovation to small towns, and made communities stronger through their contributions to public life and cultural institutions. Refugees in Texas are students, entrepreneurs, dedicated employees, customers, elected officials, and community leaders – just like us. They are us.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Janus decision and labor’s fightback

first_imgJune 27 — Today the Supreme Court of the United States delivered a major attack on organized labor, ruling in favor of Mark Janus, a 65-year-old white male child-support specialist who joined a lawsuit against American Federation of State, County, and Municiple Employees District Council 31 in Illinois. The closely watched case, Janus vs. AFSCME, centered around “agency” or “fair share” fees that public sector unions can charge workers in their bargaining units who choose not to join the union.The court’s decision overturns Abood vs. Detroit Board of Education, which allowed government bodies to require employees to pay their share of the cost of representing them — as long as the money was not used to support political candidates or “ideological” positions.The 1977 Abood decision stated that, because public sector unions are legally obligated to represent members and nonmembers alike, charging agency fees did not violate the First Amendment. Since then the National Right to Work Committee and other right-wing groups have continued to finance cases that raised bogus “free speech” issues in an effort to reverse Abood. Up to this point they were unsuccessful. Their Trump card in Janus was recent appointee Justice Neil Gorsuch.Even before today’s ruling, agency fees could not be required in the 28 “right-to-work” states. In the 22 other states, the ruling now affects 5.2 million public sector union workers. Essentially all public workers in the country will now be forced to work under open shop conditions — meaning “free-riders” can avoid contributing to the union, cutting into union power.The original plaintiff was not Janus but Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, who sued to have the agency fees declared illegal. Three state employees, including Janus, joined the case. Janus became the lone plaintiff after a court ruling that the governor could not sue because he was not a union-represented employee, and later the other two state workers dropped out.Janus is no accidental activist simply trying to keep a few extra dollars in his paycheck. In his own words, he was “forced to support a government union as a condition of employment” and argues: “This is a gross violation of my First Amendment rights to free speech and freedom of association. … What is unfair and unconstitutional is forcing me and millions of other American workers to pay to advance policies we oppose.” (Chicago Sun-Times, June 24)But the only “policies” these fees can legally pay for are better pay, benefits,  working conditions, and fair treatment on the job.Violation of workers’ rightsThe high court’s outrageous ruling has deemed it a First Amendment violation for the state of Illinois to make Janus pay the union that negotiated his $70,000-a-year salary and benefits.As AFSCME explained before the decision, “If fair share fees are struck down, employees who benefit from the gains that the union makes will not have to pay anything toward the cost of that representation. If the billionaires and corporate CEOs behind this case get their way, they will take away the freedom of working people to come together and build power to fight for the things our families and communities need: everything from affordable health care and retirement security to quicker medical emergency response times.” (AFSCME.org)Studies show that when workers have unions, the inequality gap between women and workers of color — including large numbers of public sector workers — is reduced  compared to white male workers. Is this the “speech” that Janus and his well-funded backers object to?Had Janus lost the case, he still would not be out of pocket even a penny. The Chicago-based Liberty Justice Center and the National Right to Work Legal and Defense Foundation represented Janus pro bono. The latter, a tax-exempt nonprofit, is the legal arm of the National Right to Work Committee. Founded in 1955, its first president was former Congressman Fred Hartley, co-sponsor of the notorious union-busting Taft-Hartley Act. Other officers were leaders in the John Birch Society. Current funders include prominent right-wing donors such as the Koch brothers, the Bradley Foundation, the Coors Family and Walmart.Not a death sentence for labor!AFSCME and other government unions are rightly worried that the loss of agency fee income will push them into a major financial crunch, limiting their ability to adequately represent members. But unions aren’t throwing in the towel.While SCOTUS has dealt organized labor a heavy blow, the surge of education worker strikes — many of them illegal — has demonstrated the resilience of those workers already in a compulsory open shop. These strikes have all been in states that ban agency shops — that can represent workers in the public sector— as well as banning union shops — where union membership is a condition of employment — in the private sector. Some of these states even bar public workers from collective bargaining.The victories gained since the education workers’ strike wave began in West Virginia have been of major significance. Some have gone beyond typical bargaining issues such as pay, benefits and seniority. Strikes have pushed back the expansion of charter schools and Teach for America and have boosted school funding.When workers are presented with this evidence of struggle and victory, it may not be hard to win over those not currently union members to the need to join a union.For public and private sector workers alike, the union is their first line of defense when faced with aggressive, anti-worker bosses and their friends in high places — including the highest court in the land.An immediate response to the Janus ruling came from the United Electrical workers union: “Public workers will continue to organize and defend our rights to decent living and work standards despite court decisions and laws forbidding ‘fair share’ fees.”The UE statement continued: “Vocal and militant actions by UE public-sector members and locals around the ‘right to work’ South show the possibilities available to public workers to continue to defend and improve their working lives.” (ueunion.org) Numerous other union statements are echoing this  optimism.Narrow business unionism and class collaborationism could be casualties of Janus if unions are given no choice but to return to class struggle unionism of past decades. That’s what it took to win the right to organize in the first place.This week the Supreme Court also upheld Trump’s xenophobic, Islamophobic immigration ban and undermined reproductive rights. Earlier this month the court allowed businesses to discriminate against the LGBTQ community under the cover of religion.A united, militant mass movement can turn back Janus and all of these temporary setbacks.Grevatt is a 30-year United Auto Worker Fiat Chrysler worker and serves on the executive board of UAW Local 869.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Intelligence services go to great lengths to prevent visiting Algerian journalist from working

first_imgNews November 9, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Intelligence services go to great lengths to prevent visiting Algerian journalist from working November 11, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en Meddi Adlène of the Algerian daily El Watan has been questioned, searched and followed by intelligence agents ever since he arrived in Tunisia on 1 November to write a series of reports and to interview Moncef Marzouki, the head of the Tunisian League of Human Rights, Reporters Without Borders said today.“President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali’s fourth term in office is like the previous ones,” the press freedom organisation said. “Journalists are still closely watched and controlled by the authorities and are kept on a very short leash. Foreign journalists are not usually subjected to physical reprisals but the Tunisian intelligence services go to extraordinary lengths to intimidate them and prevent them working.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Nonetheless, the possibility of violence cannot be ruled out. Christophe Boltanski, a journalist working for the French daily Libération, was attacked and stabbed on 11 November 2005 near his hotel while policemen looked on without taking action. And many local human rights activists and lawyers, and their families, are subjected to all-out harassment.”Adlène has been constantly followed by a group of six plain-clothes policemen since his arrival in Tunisia, while police have been deployed around his hotel. The least of his actions and words are spied on, and his movements are monitored by policemen on motorcycles. Their aim is not go unnoticed. On the contrary, they clearly want to intimidate the people he interviews so they will refuse to talk.On Adlène’s return from Sousse (140 km from Tunis), where he went to meet with Marzouki, an intelligence agent took a seat beside him in the collective taxi that brought him back to the capital and made several calls during the trip to confirm that he still had Adlène under surveillance. The taxi was stopped twice and its passengers were searched and questioned.“We are used to having problems in Tunisia but this is really going too far, El Watan editor Fayçal Métaoui said.President Ben Ali, who has ruled Tunisia since 1987, is regarded by Reporters Without Borders as one of the world’s 35 press freedom predators.
