first_imgGreek workers protest austerity.Voters in Greece’s Jan. 25 parliamentary election rejected the harsh, devastating capitalist austerity program imposed, for the past six years, by the European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the European Commission on the working class in that country.This first electoral defeat of austerity in all of Western Europe opens up a new stage in the struggle continentwide, especially in countries like Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Italy, where unemployment rates have ranged from 12 to 25 percent since 2010, and workers have been under fierce attack from the bankers and bosses.Syriza, a Greek party whose electoral appeal grew enormously in the past few years, came in first with 36 percent of the popular vote and 149 of the 300 seats. Syriza’s leader, Alexis Tsipras, was named premier Jan. 26. Parties opposing austerity topped 52 percent of the vote.The two parties — New Democracy and Pasok — that had formed the previous government and had accepted and defended the policy of austerity, faced a crushing defeat. Together, they got only 33 percent of the vote.The reasons for the popular anger over capitalist austerity run deep. Jobs have vanished: the official unemployment rate in Greece is 27 percent, 50 percent for youth under 30.  Wages, including the minimum wage, have been slashed along with pensions and health care.  Hunger has increased along with suicides.The governments have raised taxes and fees rapidly and unpredictably, but Greece’s total tax income has fallen since the national economy has been rapidly declining. Greece’s output of goods and services is now only two-thirds what it was in 2007.While European bankers and regimes touted austerity as the only way to solve Greece’s financial crisis, its debt actually increased.  Bankers bought Greek bonds at 10 percent interest after they knew the IMF and the ECB were backing them.With 149 seats leaving it two short of a majority, Syriza brought in a small, right-wing but anti-austerity party called the Independent Greeks as a coalition partner so it can form a government.In a speech in front of the University of Athens, Tsipras called the vote result “a victory for all peoples of Europe fighting austerity.” He went on to say, “It cancels the memorandums” that enforce Greece’s international loan agreements.  He  proclaimed that his government would negotiate a fair “mutually beneficial agreement,” raise the minimum wage to its previous level and cut taxes on the middle class. (Ekathimini, Jan. 25)Many leaders of left-social-democratic and “Eurocommunist” parties in southern Europe attended Syriza’s concluding rallies, including Pablo Iglesias of Spain’s Podemos Party, Jean-Luc Mélenchon of France’s Parti de Gauche and Pierre Laurent of the French Communist Party.  Syriza supporters in the Greek diaspora held meetings and rallies leading up to the vote and celebrations afterwards.Bankers, governments insist on austerityThe European bankers and imperialist economists have announced they will resist any major debt restructuring. Johan Van Overtveldt, Belgium’s finance minister, told a Belgian TV channel: “We can talk modalities, we can talk debt restructuring, but the cornerstone that Greece must respect the rules of monetary union, that must stay as it is.” (AP, Jan. 25)Europe is in the midst of a financial crisis, which has had a major impact on Greece. This crisis has led the European Central Bank to announce a program of “quantitative easing,” which will involve buying 60 billion euros worth of bonds for the next 18 months.But the German government insisted on imposing conditions that will keep Greece from getting any ECB funds designed to restart economies threatened by deflation, unless Greece continues to meet the restrictions imposed by its bailout. (Financial Times, Jan. 22)The Greek government and its new prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, are facing a difficult challenge: how to restart the economy and improve people’s lives under the threat of a huge debt that bankers insist they pay.Syriza is a new party, just coalescing as an electoral coalition in 2004 and not formally becoming a party until 2013.  It is an amalgam of  so-called democratic socialists, left-wing populist and green left groups, as well as Maoist, Trotskyist and Eurocommunist groups that split from the Greek Communist Party (KKE) in the 1990s. Despite its electoral appeal, Syriza has little influence in the union movement, where the KKE is strong.(The January 2015 issue of the magazine The Jacobin has a detailed article dealing with the history of the factions inside Syriza.)While Syriza will hold government office, Greece’s finances will still be subject to European, especially German banks. And the Greek state — the army, which made a coup in 1967 that lasted seven years, and the police — still answers to NATO and the Greek ruling class. In addition, there is the threat from an anti-immigrant fascist party, Golden Dawn, which got 6 percent of the vote even though its leaders were running for parliament from jail.To confront these obstacles, the Greek workers not only will need to mobilize for struggle but will also need the solidarity of workers throughout Europe and the United States.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

We believe this new plant will be one of the most cost efficient biodiesel plants in the country. I am proud to be part of this new plant in my hometown, Annawan, IL. It’s great to see Patriot grow and diversify its business here, and I can’t wait to work with the new employees that will be brought on to operate the plant”.Rick Vondra said “Patriot Fuels Biodiesel, LLC will use a new “Super Critical” production process that involves high pressure and heat. It will use less chemicals than many other processes. Feedstock will be corn oil extracted from the corn/ethanol process, but if we want to expand production, we can use any of the other feedstocks such as soy oil, brown grease, or yellow grease as well”. The plant has been designed by Jatro Diesel, Miamisburg, Ohio. Patriot is acting as general contractor for the project. Construction Manager, Joe Lillion is coordinating and supervising all the engineering, procurement and subcontractor activities.Biodiesel at the plant will be made from corn oil, making it the first advanced biofuel produced by Patriot.Source: SHARE Patriot Names Manager for New Biodiesel Plantlast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter It looks unlikely that the TPP agreement will be dealt with by the current Congress, thus it is likely a new Congress and new administration will decide the fate of the TPP. Warner stated, “I hope that, when they get elected, they will see the reality of the situation and change their mind.” He adds that the TPP allows U.S. pork access to half a billion people in the fastest growing economic region of the world. Previous articleCompromise Labeling Bill Finally on the TableNext articleNew Land Grant Commission Gets Busy on Food Security Gary Truitt SHARE At this point, the leading candidates for President are opposed to, or at least luke warm on, agricultural trade. This is a situation about which the U.S. pork industry is quite worried. Early in her campaign, Hillary Clinton was in favor of the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, but now she has come out against the treaty. Donald Trump, while in Nebraska, was talking about beef trade with Japan but remains opposed to TPP which would help open up the Japanese market. Home Indiana Agriculture News Opposition to Trade by Presidential Candidates Concerns Pork Industry Dave Warner, with the National Pork Producers Council, is concerned about these anti-trade positions, stating the TPP is a good deal for the pork industry and for America as a whole, “In almost every case, the free trade agreement is more beneficial to the US than to any other country. These nations have better access to the U.S. market than we have to theirs. The trade agreement fixes that.” Facebook Twitter Warner points out that history has proven that American farmers benefit from trade agreements and that the pork industry is a prime example, “U.S. pork producers export more pork to the 20 countries with which we have a free trade agreement than to all the other countries of the world combined.” He added that not getting TPP would be a huge loss for the U.S. pork industry.

first_imgLinkedin Facebook Facebook Twitter printTCU football fell 34-27 to Oklahoma State Saturday to stop any momentum they had gained from last week’s win over Texas and drop the Frogs to 4-4 on the year.The Frogs allowed 223 rushing yards to the nation’s leading rusher and committed four turnovers Saturday. “Still, as bad as we played, it was a seven-point ball game on the road,” head coach Gary Patterson said.  “When we play well and figure it out, we can beat anyone, and when we don’t, we aren’t going to.”The sparkle and glitter that had earned first-year quarterback Max Duggan Big 12 Newcomer of the Week last week seemed to have washed away against Oklahoma State. After throwing just one interception in his first seven career games, Duggan was picked off three times by the Cowboys. Quarterback Max Duggan was sacked four times on Saturday against the Pokes. Photo by Heesoo YangTwo of the interceptions came on miscommunications with his receivers, while the third came on a ball that should’ve been thrown away.The young signal-caller finished 21-39 with 258 yards and a touchdown. He added 84 yards and a score with his legs. Near the end of the game, he missed a few plays with an undisclosed injury.“The bottom line is I hope he’s okay,” Patterson said. “We have to get back and make sure we are ready to play next week.”On the other side, running back Chuba Hubbard was unstoppable for Oklahoma State. Hubbard, the nation’s leading rusher, ripped off for 223 yards and two touchdowns, including a 92-yard score. Hubbard is the first player to rush for 200 or moreyards against a Patterson-led defense.“Hubbard is a very good back,” linebacker Garret Wallow said. “I give credit to Oklahoma State’s offense.”Patterson emphasized TCU’s need to get off to a quick start against the Cowboys. However, the team fell behind 17-3 early after gaining two combined first downs on their first four drives.Wallow said after the game that the run had to do with“a couple of guys not doing their job.”The Frogs saw signs of life midway through the second quarter. A 12-play, 81-yard drive ending in Duggan’s fourth rushing touchdown of the season pulled TCU within a score, 17-10.TCU wouldn’t be done before the end of the half, though. After being pinned at their own five-yard line, the Frogs marched 95 yards down the field to tie the game at 17 on a 24-yard pass from Duggan to tight end Pro Wells. The drive was kept alive by a seemingly impossible grab by receiver Jalen Reagor for 37 yards down the right sideline.

Wide receiver Jalen Reagor eclipsed 2,000 career yards against OSU. Photo by Heesoo YangAfter Oklahoma State went up 24-17, Duggan looked like the lights at Boone Pickens Stadium were too bright for him, as he overthrew his receiver for his second interception of the game.Three drives later, with another opportunity to tiethe game, Duggan suffered from yet another miscommunication with a receiver, hittingthe OSU safety in stride for his third pick of the day.It took the Pokes two plays to take advantage of the turnover. Hubbard popped off again, this time for a 62-yard score to put the Frogs behind by 14 with 9:48 left to play.The Cowboys rushed for 307 yards in the game. The Frogs had not given up 300 yards rushing since they gave up 329 against Oklahoma on Oct. 20, 2018.A bright spot for TCU had been a season-high 128 yards from Reagor on seven catches. The junior now has 2,091 receiving yards on his career at TCU.Wallow finished with 11 tackles, his fourthdouble-digit effort of the season.Linebacker Garret Wallow finished with 11 tackles in the loss.

Arrested on 18 April on a charge of “disrespect for authority,” he had been transferred to a prison on 10 May. The press freedom organisation does not expect his appeal to be successful.“Hastily tried just two days after being jailed, Du Bouchet has little chance of having his sentence quashed on appeal as it was due above all to his activities as a dissident journalist,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The lawyer who filed the appeal on his behalf was not even able to attend the trial.”The press freedom organisation added: “Du Bouchet’s imprisonment brings the number of journalists detained in Cuba to 24. He is the fourth journalist to be jailed since Raúl Castro took over as President of the Council of State in July 2006. Despite the transition, Cuba still holds its position as the world’s second biggest prison for journalists.”________________________14.05.09 – Dissident journalist facing jail term on “disrespect” chargeReporters Without Borders calls for the immediate release of independent journalist Alberto Santiago Du Bouchet, who was arrested after a verbal exchange with a policeman in Artemisa (in Havana province) on 18 April. Du Bouchet, who is a reporter for Habana Press, an independent news agency, was previously jailed from August 2005 to August 2006 for a similar reason.“The brakes have been applied to the initial moves towards more openness adopted by Raúl Castro after his formal installation as president in February 2008 and this is the context in which Du Bouchet has been jailed,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Dissident journalists are again finding it hard to get access to the Internet in hotels. They are being constantly harassed by State Security agents.”The press freedom organisation added: “The regime has resumed cracking down after trying to acquire more respectability with the international community. It will not be able to play this double game for long.”A total of 24 journalists are currently detained in Cuba. Since the July 2006 transfer of power from Fidel to Raúl Castro, three journalists have been arrested and jailed under an article in the Cuban criminal code that allows the authorities to imprison someone for representing a “pre-crime social danger,” even though they have committed no crime.Little is known about the circumstances of Du Bouchet’s arrest except that he was taken to the police station in Artemisa after an exchange for words with a police officer. He was transferred on 10 May to Melena 2 prison, to the south of the capital, where he is awaiting trial on a charge of “disrespect for authority.” According to the criminal code, he faces a possible sentence of between one and four years in prison.Because of his dissident journalistic activities, Du Bouchet has been threatened with jail several times since his release in August 2006.Meanwhile, according to the Payolibre website, State Security agents went to the Havana home of independent journalist Lisbán Hernández Sánchez on 7 May and warned him that he could be jailed for four years as a “pre-crime social danger.” Aged 27, Hernández functions as a press officer for the Comisión Martiana, a dissident group.Nineteen of the 24 journalists currently in prison in Cuba were arrested during the March 2003 “Black Spring” crackdown and were given sentences ranging from 14 to 27 years in prison solely because of their views. One of them, Ricardo González Alfonso, editor of the magazine De Cuba and Reporters Without Borders correspondent, is due to be released in 2023. News to go further News Newslast_img read more

And over the next three weeks ‘Coronation Street’ will be interrupted on a nightly basis by packs of eager politicians hankering for your vote.The deplorable state of Ireland’s health services and the worsening housing crisis are sure to be the two big issues election hopefuls are going to face on the doorsteps in the coming weeks.And as a wise man once said, “Every election is determined by the people who show up”. So use your vote!On that note, a person eligible to vote but not registered as an elector still has time to apply for entry in the supplement to the register to be published before polling day. For inclusion in the supplement to the register, a person must complete the relevant application form (RFA2), which can be downloaded pronto from or can be obtained from the local authority.Once you’ve this ticked off the list, take your seat ringside and savour the inane bloodsport of the main party’s tearing strips off each other.As the pantomime that is a general election gets into full swing in the coming days, shenanigans of Shakespearean proportions are to be expected.Already this week Labour TD Jan O’Sullivan has taken aim at Fine Gael and accused them of using “auction politics” to try win the election.According to Deputy O’Sullivan, the Government used the possibility of a hard Brexit to deny affordable changes in Budget 2020 to people reliant on social welfare and in particular, pensioners.“What I don’t understand is why the same Government that is celebrating projected economic growth of four per cent for next year refuses to make modest increases in core social welfare payments.“Neither Minister Donohoe or Minister Doherty have any excuse not to act and they should do so now. The cost of living is rising, and the least the Government should do is make sure that those on low fixed incomes are not left behind,” the Limerick TD said.Meanwhile, Cristín Ní Mhaoldhomhnaigh, who will be running as a National Party candidate in County Limerick, takes the view that the people of Ireland have no real representation anymore.A teacher from Ballyneety, Cristín says she is outraged at the homeless crisis and the barrage of taxation, which is “pushing ordinary people into poverty”. The first-time Dáil candidate is advocating for complete reform of the administrative division of the health system, immigration control with serious vetting, strong Law and Order policies and fair treatment for beef farmers.Also this week, Fianna Fáil general election candidate Cllr James Collins called for reform of the Fair Deal nursing home scheme to allow families rent out homes now vacant because a family member has moved into a nursing home.“We need to reform the Fair Deal scheme so families are not penalised financially if they rent out a home now vacant because a family member has moved into a nursing home. Reforming the current law would help some of the most financially and emotionally stressed families in the country,” he said.If man really is a “political animal”, one thing is for certain, Election 2020 will have as many twists and turns as the Monaco Grand Prix to whet our appetites.

This was a treat.”While the Sailors were visiting, they sang the Navy’s “Anchors Aweigh” and played piano songs.“We wanted to make an impact on the residents here, and we thought that singing and playing the piano was a great way to do that,” said Information Systems Technician 1st Class (SW) Kim Johnson.“Giving back to community is something I always have to do wherever I go, regardless if its back at home or a port visit,” said Yeoman 2nd Class Mary-Katherine King. “This was a great project for us to do and I can’t wait to have many more like this to come.”Cmdr. David Bauer, commanding officer of Oak Hill, stated that interaction between service members and the civilian populace is a Sailors duty in order to promote the Navy’s professionalism.“My Sailors were quick to volunteer themselves to the community, so that is just a small taste of the pride they have when it comes to involving themselves for any opportunity to be involved in any community event,” said Bauer.[mappress]Source: navy, June 22, 2011; View post tag: Visit View post tag: USSlast_img read more
