Sanctions Kill Campaign mobilizes for actions March 13-15

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this New York CityBeginning in the fall of 2019, anti-war and progressive activists became increasingly concerned that the United States had weaponized its control of the dollar. Using a form of economic warfare, the U.S. had imposed sanctions on 39 countries. Among them were Zimbabwe, Libya and Mali in Africa; Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela in Latin America; Syria, Yemen and Iran in the Middle East; Burma and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in Asia; and Belarus and Russia in Europe. A group of activists, who were working on anti-sanctions campaigns in particular countries or areas, joined together as the Sanctions Kill Campaign and started meeting to plan an international campaign to oppose all the sanctions imposed by the U.S. In 15 different languages, they have issued a call for demonstrations and meetings for March 13-15 and have drawn an international response.The most recent organizing meeting, held Feb. 1 at the Solidarity Center here, was chaired by members of the December 12th Movement and the International Action Center, and attended by representatives of the Venceramos Brigade, CODEPINK, the Venezuelan Embassy Protectors Collective, Peoples Power Assembly-New York City and Socialist Action; members of the Ecuadorean, Honduran and Palestinian communities; and progressive unions, including the National Writers Union (UAW Local 1981) and Progressive Staff Congress. last_img read more

Teen girl found safe after alleged targeted kidnapping in Maryland: Police

first_imgPrince George’s County Police Dept.(WASHINGTON) — Police in Maryland have found a 16-year-old girl who they believe was kidnapped in Langley Park Tuesday morning — more than a week after she was originally reported missing in Washington, D.C.Erica Alvarez was safely located and is talking to authorities, Prince George’s County police said Tuesday afternoon.She had been abducted shortly before 8 a.m. by a suspect driving a dark Ford SUV, police said.Police believe “she was taken against her will” from the vestibule of an apartment building, officials said.

St John’s creates post to research its colonial past

first_imgRhodes Must Fall originated in South Africa and called for the removal of statues of Cecil Rhodes from the Oxford Campus; it was inevitably unsuccessful. The college identifies the goals of the research as the production of “a report and other scholarly publications”, as well as to “set the standard for future work in other institutions.” The move follows investigations by American universities into their involvement with the slave trade. In the UK, the University of Glasgow recently published a report on its own ties to slavery, whilst Edinburgh University has undertaken a similar project. The two year role as a research assistant will focus on “explor[ing]connections between the college and colonialism, uncovering benefactions to StJohn’s and the alumni who served in the empire.” St John’s College has announced the creation of a new research post exploring “St John’s and the Colonial Past”, the first position of its kind to be established at the university. The vacancy posting cites a “drive to ‘decolonise the university’- or, at any rate, to think about the implications of institutional involvement in imperial projects of the past” as the chief motive behind this new research. After research has been completed, a series of workshops will be held in order to broaden discussion of the topic and to formulate responses to the project’s findings. The application directly refers to the Rhodes Must Fall campaign as an example of how “institutional involvement in the imperial projects of the past — is now a matter of world-wide scholarly concern.” Further information provided by St John’s College describes Oxford’s involvement as various, stating: “Oxford in general helped to educate and train colonial administrators; missionaries; apologists for, and critics, of empire; and significant leaders and creators of newly independent states.” It goes on to say that “there are thus compelling intellectual and ethical reasons for institutions of higher education to face up to the role they played in the British Empire.” The post is currently open for applications and the appointee will begin their work alongside Professor William Whyte, leader of the project and Professor of Social and Architectural History, at the start of next year.last_img read more
