Los actores Anaylín de la Rúa de la Torre y Javier Núñez Florián, cada uno tiene 20 años, son novios y filmaron la película titulada “Una noche” hace cuatro años bajo la dirección de la cineasta británica Lucy Mullay. En declaraciones a la prensa dijeron que en Estados Unidos “hay más oportunidades de trabajo y libertad”.La publicación en Alemania de un nueva versión de Mein Kampf (Mi lucha), el libro insignia de Adolfo Hitler en el que expuso su doctrina ultranacionalista y antisemita del nazismo, ha provocado controversias en algunos sectores de la comunidad judía que aún no olvidan los horrores del Holocausto. Hitler se suicidó en su búnker de Berlín el 30 de abril de 1945 junto con su amante Eva Braun.Madeleine Albright, profesora y ex secretaria de estado de Estados Unidos, acaba de publicar un libro titulado El invierno de Praga en el que habla de su infancia y la persecución nazi. También hace referencia a sus familiares judíos. Albright es miembro de la Iglesia Episcopal.La oficina de relaciones públicas de la diócesis episcopal del Sureste de la Florida informa que el obispo Leo Frade hará dos “peregrinajes” a Cuba este año. Uno será del 1 al 6 de agosto y el otro del 21 al 26 de noviembre. Los peregrinajes tienen por objeto acompañar mejor a la Iglesia Episcopal en Cuba que junto con las demás iglesias está experimentando “un avivamiento” espiritual y disfrutando de “mayores libertades”. Frade y su esposa Diana han visitado Cuba 10 veces en los últimos años, en varias ocasiones trayendo ex presos políticos. El costo del viaje es de $2,850. El grupo visitará Cárdenas, Santa Cruz del Norte, Matanzas y Bacuranao, además de La Habana. Griselda Delgado, nacida y criada en Bolivia, es la obispa de la Iglesia Episcopal de Cuba.Las relaciones con Cuba siguen siendo tema de discusión en los medios de Miami. La petición de los obispos católicos romanos de Estados Unidos pidiendo el establecimiento de relaciones diplomáticas con la isla, la eliminación de restricciones de viajes y el fin del embargo económico establecido en 1962, ha recibido severas críticas. El obispo Richard Pates dijo a nombre de sus colegas que con esas decisiones se “estará apoyando al pueblo de Cuba, nuestros vecinos apenas 144 kilómetros de distancia, a los derechos humanos y a la libertad religiosa”.La Iglesia Metodista Unida que se reunió la semana pasada en Tampa, Florida, en su Conferencia General, ha tomado un paso importante después de una década de discusiones. La conferencia ha decidido entrar en un acuerdo de plena comunión con cinco denominaciones negras que salieron de la Iglesia Metodista en el siglo XVIII por razones raciales. Hace 12 años la iglesia tuvo una ceremonia pidiendo “arrepentimiento y perdón” por la conducta racista que había tenido. El obispo Thomas Hoyt Jr. dijo que “ya era hora”.Charles Colson, conocido por haber sido asesor especial del presidente Richard Nixon y haber guardado prisión por su participación en el escándalo de Watergate, ha fallecido de una operación cerebral a la edad de 80 años en Lansdowne, Virginia. Las iglesias evangélicas lo recuerdan por su dramática conversión espiritual y la formación del ministerio carcelario que ayudó a evangelizar a miles de presos.Un reciente informe sobre la situación social de la mujer en Estados Unidos revela que aunque se le concedió el voto en 1920, aún existen “desigualdades injustas”. Por ejemplo, en la Cámara de Representantes sólo el 17 por ciento son mujeres y en la historia de Estados Unidos 277 mujeres han sido electas a la Cámara mientras que en el mismo período se han elegido a 12,000 hombres. Sólo el 3 por ciento de los presidentes de las grandes corporaciones son mujeres y éstas sólo ganan el 81 por ciento de lo que ganan los hombres.La cadena de televisión MSNBC dijo el jueves pasado que un prominente sacerdote católico romano australiano contrajo matrimonio secreto hace un año con una bella joven filipina llamada Josephine. Kevin Lee le explicó a su congregación de Sydney su decisión que fue recibida con aplausos y lágrimas. El obispo Anthony Fisher ha despojado a Lee de sus privilegios y responsabilidades sacerdotales. También negó las palabras del sacerdote que dijo que “muchos de mis compañeros están en la misma situación que la mía. El celibato tiene que abolirse”.VERDAD. “Debemos amarnos unos a otros, porque el amor viene de Dios”.

Lee church changes name: Confederate general dropped to return to…

first_imgLee church changes name: Confederate general dropped to return to ‘Grace’ By David PaulsenPosted Sep 19, 2017 September 21, 2017 at 7:48 am Excellent coverage of a complex story of deep discernment by a small community. The only fact that was not disclosed here is that the prior vote that failed was in fact a majority vote but the leadership (rightfully) decided on a supermajority standard for this decision. This had the effect of slowing down the process but getting to the right place in the right way. Proud to call myself an Episcopalian today. Kathleen Whiting says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Advocacy Peace & Justice, Racial Justice & Reconciliation Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Collierville, TN September 19, 2017 at 6:10 pm What a joke. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis September 21, 2017 at 4:27 pm Very unfortunate that as an Episcopalian I find yet another move by aChurch in the Episocplalian faith in the United States do an underhanded and irresponsible act. If you think your decision to rename your church will heal any divisions you are sadly mistaken. What your church has done has deepened the rift that is prevelant in the Episcopal Church in the United States. Churches such as the one in this article decide to drive the rift in the faithful so they can be more in “today’s world.” Compromise to the sad political correctness that drives away members is all about making the church into their own image and not based on faith. There are thousands leaving the Episcopal Church in the United States because of unwise and unwarranted actions such as this church. I may be listed as an Episcoplian officially, but in reality my finances and tithing has not been given to the Episcopal Church for the last nine years. And after knowing about changing the name of your church because you’re ashamed of a truly noble man, I’m glad I made the decision to leave the Episcopal Church and will continue to advise others to do the same. ronald freeman says: Sr. Dawna Clare Sutton, CG says: Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS September 19, 2017 at 9:16 pm NO, as an outsider, I see this decision to be one that righted history…Lee was a pro-slavery person and worked hard at defeating the Reconstruction efforts. While he took an oath of allegiance to the US he broke that oath by joining the confederate army, while many of his Virginia military officers fought with the North. He was saved from a charge of treason by General Grant.He also separated a slave family of his, selling the woman to one family and her child to another.So, it is not hatred motivating the name change; it is reverting to a past name.

Seems to me it’s bound up in Grace. Rector Pittsburgh, PA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME September 20, 2017 at 2:07 am Too bad that the congregation did not have a Congregational meeting to verify the vote. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Priscilla Johnstone says: Rector Knoxville, TN September 19, 2017 at 9:10 pm I thought David Paulsen would have served us better had the headline emphasized the restoration of the original name of the parish and the heeding of General Lee’s wishes. That we have Confederate dignitaries associated with Episcopal institutions is certainly, to borrow a phrase, an inconvenient truth. That we have bishops who held Conventions knowing that blacks would not have equal access to hotels and restaurants, yet did nothing is another. “They were men of their times,” we used to say. The history I read tells me that our country would not have been founded at all had it not been for the compromise over slavery. That seems to be the inconvenient truth we can’t yet address. Going back to re-fight the 80 some-odd year run-up to the Civil War will only encourage revenge and more regret. The past can’t be changed, but it can be redeemed. The means of redemption have been the subject of the past several Sundays: Christ, Cross, Reconciliation, Forgiveness, Grace. I think the Presiding Bishop has us on just the right path. Let’s worry less about keeping up with the latest politically correct issue. Let’s focus on this part of the Jesus Movement and see where he takes us. Thomas K. Chu, Esq. says: Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Joel Morris says: September 20, 2017 at 12:49 pm The argument that changining the name of the church back to the original name is “rewriting history” is a specious one. You said in your own reply that one cannot change history. One can rewrite history books in a biased way, which undoubtedly what the Soviets did (quite common in authoritarian regimes). Glorifying a man who turned his back on his country and served a rebellion whose purpose was to continue a system of enslavement in the economic interests of the South, is simply wrong. The Episcopal Church is one who proclaims the all are welcome ( there is no but…). If I were African American I would call that hypocritical and would certainly not feel welcome.As some have said in their replies that Lee had admiral and heroic qualities does not alter the fact of his treason against his country. I’m sure there were many Nazis in WW!! who had admirabli traits and heroic qualities, but I doubt that there are any memorials are churches named after any of them. I will be pleased to attend Brace Episcopal if I find myself in Lexington. I doubt if I would be without the name change. The church did the right thing. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Martinsville, VA Comments (33) Larry Waters says: P.J. Cabbiness says: John Miller says: September 20, 2017 at 3:57 pm One wonders if the members of the parish were given an opportunity to vote in this decision and were in agreement with the decision. My guess is they were not and the decision was made by the Vestry. I hope my guess was wrong. Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR David Paulsen says: September 20, 2017 at 9:47 am Bob Marsh, your note on the headline is well taken, and I have updated it to indicate more clearly that the church “returned” to an earlier name. I would also add that although the Episcopal Church’s historic complicity with slavery and segregation isn’t common knowledge among all Episcopalians, it is something that the church has and is dealing with directly. General Convention has passed numerous resolutions on the topic, including resolutions like this one that seek to confront sins of the past on the path toward reconciliation: https://www.episcopalarchives.org/cgi-bin/acts/acts_resolution.pl?resolution=2009-A143 Joe Owen says: John Miller says: Tony Oberdorfer says: Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Alexander Scott says: September 20, 2017 at 4:14 pm Joel Morris stated that all are welcomed in TEC and there are no buts. Really? I’m beginning to doubt that. To borrow from the novel Animal Farm, All are equal but some are more equal than others. Replace the word equal with welcome and you have the Episcopal Church in a nutshell. If you don’t believe that just ask any conservative member. And just for the record Joel I AM African-American and would not feel unwelcome in the least if I worshiped in a church that had confederate images on the stained glass. I tend to be old school and judge how the people in the congregation treat me in deciding whether or not I am welcomed. If I feel unwelcomed in TEC it is not because of any confederate symbols that might still be in a parish. It is because of my conservative viewpoints. In this denomination conservatives are at best totally ignored by the clergy and many of the members and at worse ridiculed by them. Maybe someday after they are all done congratulating each other on the purging of anything having to do with the confederacy from any and all parishes, maybe, just maybe they’ll get around to welcoming and involving conservative members in the future of this church. If indeed it has a future. Larry Waters says: September 21, 2017 at 11:23 am Amen to R. Davin’s post about devastation in several states. Perhaps all of us can write a check to the E. Relief and Development Fund. Regardless of one’s political views, people/pets etc. need help now! Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Ed Lane says: Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH September 20, 2017 at 12:09 pm That General Lee himself was evidently opposed to the creation of memorials in his honor would have been reason enough to oppose the renaming of Grace Church in 1903 despite his intimate association with the church. But the decision by self-righteous vestrymen to revert to the original name 114 years later, despite their denials, is clearly a political act motivated fundamentally by the left-wing proclivities of the day. I am cynical enough to suggest that there may be a few parishioners at the church who regret their having no stained glass to remove as has the Washington National Cathedral. In any case the whole affair is another black mark against today’s Episcopal Church which will cause far more people to leave than it will attract. Comments are closed. Jeffrey Cox says: F William Thewalt says: September 22, 2017 at 7:35 pm I am not a member of Grace Episcopal Church.I do laud the effort to confront our country’s history, especially the Civil War. I am a Northern and I tend to see our mutual history as a story of our Nation reborn. I am also a newbie from the RC and I love the Episcopal church, even its flaws and sinfulness (for so am I). When I was contemplating the history of the Episcopal Church before the Civil War and after it was a revelation what happen to the church after the Civil War. History may change and even get rewritten, but for those who can remain open and truly read the “real” history answers are always there. If Lee didn’t want to have a church named after him and now it goes back to its “original” name I see choice to move forward as a Christian opening to the “Grace” of the moment. What is our “original” history? Always go back your true roots find it. You will be in my prayers, we are all in this together and today with all the current needs in our own country let alone in the world, let us move forward in reconciliation together with/ in Christ our Savior Jim Newman says: David Paulsen says: center_img Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET The sign in front of R.E. Lee Memorial Church bears the name of the church and, therefore, also the Confederate general who was a parishioner there. Photo: Lee Memorial Church via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] R.E. Lee Memorial Church in Lexington, Virginia, where Robert E. Lee once served as senior warden will no longer honor the Confederate general in its name.After two years of tense debate in the congregation, the vestry voted, 7-5, on Sept. 18 to change the church’s name to its previous Grace Episcopal Church. The decision had been backed publicly by Southwestern Virginia Bishop Mark Bourlakas, who spoke to the congregation earlier this month.“It’s been a costly process both spiritually, financially and emotionally for the congregation, but I’m proud of their work and encouraged by it,” Bourlakas told Episcopal News Service by phone Sept. 19.The vestry’s past inaction on the name had prompted some to leave the church. Others were steadfast in favor of keeping the name to honor Lee. Episcopalians on both sides of the issue filled the church when Bourlakas spoke there Sept. 7, and they again gave competing views this week before the vestry’s vote.Violence last month during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, has amplified the national debate over Confederate symbols in public places, including at Episcopal institutions. For many of those institutions, the debate began two years ago after the massacre at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, by a gunman with Confederate sympathies.“It’s been a very divisive issue for two years,” the Rev. Tom Crittenden, the Lexington church’s rector, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch. “But Charlottesville seems to have moved us to this point. Not that we have a different view of Lee historically in our church, but we have appreciation for our need to move on.”Hate groups chose Charlottesville because of that city’s decision to remove a statue of Lee. Clashes with anti-racism counterprotesters ended in numerous injuries and the death of one counterprotester.Washington National Cathedral in the nation’s capital responded by removing stained-glass windows depicting Lee and a fellow Confederate general, Stonewall Jackson. Christ Church Cathedral in Cincinnati, Ohio, launched a study of its own memorials to Confederate figures after the dean called for their removal.Defenders of such memorials have warned against hiding history, and some say Confederate generals displayed heroic qualities despite fighting on the side of the slave-holding South. Those arguments have been countered by critics who rebuke efforts to portray the Confederate cause as noble.The congregation in Lexington faced the additional challenge of confronting the legacy of a Confederate figure closely tied to its own identity.While serving in Lexington as president of Washington College, later renamed Washington and Lee University, the former Confederate general spent the last five years of his life, until his death in 1870, helping the struggling congregation survive. There is no record, however, of why the congregation chose to rename the church for Lee in 1903.Members of Lee Memorial Church spent several months in 2015 discussing the church name in light of the Charleston shooting. After surveying the congregation and hearing a range of opinions for and against, the vestry narrowly voted that November to keep the name unchanged.Then in 2016, the church hired an outside consultant and formed the Discovery and Discernment Committee of vestry members and parishioners to more carefully pursue reconciliation among the congregation and decide what actions to take.The committee and consultant issued a 15-page report in April 2017 that summarized the various perspectives on the church’s name and recommended “that the name of the church be officially restored to its former name of Grace Episcopal Church.” The vestry met the same month to review the report and accepted all the recommendations, except the one urging a name change.“It is extremely difficult to get people to change their position and their understanding of facts when it’s so bound up with identity,” vestry member Doug Cumming, who favored the name change, told ENS. “But it was time.”The discussion reignited after the violence in Charlottesville renewed questions about whether it was appropriate to name a church after a Confederate general. With members of the vestry still resisting a change, Bourlakas took a more active role in the conversations, visiting the church in late August and coordinating a three-city lecture series on racial reconciliation that kicked off in Lexington on Sept. 13.The bishop, in recommending a name change, tried to focus the congregation on its Christian mission, which he said should not be hindered by distractions like disagreements over a name or Confederate statues.“There’s still an amount of healing that will have to take place,” Bourlakas said. “In the long run, I think the church will be stronger and will be a strong gospel witness in Lexington.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected] September 19, 2017 at 11:24 pm Isn’t Lee buried in the church? What happened to all the Confederate flags in the church? September 20, 2017 at 11:41 am I fully agree that the congregation may change the name of their church to anything that they desire. However, the name change is precipitated by the desire of the EC to be seen an “activist church”, i.e., a church that is easily led by folks who are determined to destroy our country. Also, where is the “forgiveness for our sins” that Christians [Episcopalians] espouse? As others have previously sadi, in this thread, these types of actions [removing statues, changing names] remind us more of communism than our society. BTW, why does the EC not talk about the violent radical left group, which attacked the group that had a permit to march? Submit a Press Release September 19, 2017 at 6:31 pm That was brief and to the point, Ed, but fails to honor the difficult discernment process of this parish. I applaud them for this move, not as a way of “rewriting history” but rather as a return to a previous identity that was not bound up in a single person but in the grace of God. Truly, an extension of grace. September 20, 2017 at 9:50 am Lee is not buried in this church.

I also am reading RECOLLECTIONS AND LETTERS OF ROBERT E . LEE . When I was a student at Hobart College in Geneva , New York , we all had to take a course in American history . The main text used in the course was by Morrison and Commager , highly reputable historians . They said that Lee was a truly great American , of the same caliber of character as George Washington .

Richmond Parker , from Yankee -Land in Central New York . Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA September 19, 2017 at 9:17 pm You need to read more bios on Lee.

September 21, 2017 at 9:18 am Parts of Houston, and its people are still in a terrible mess, parts of Florida and its people are in a state of devastation, it appears that Puerto Rico are to be added to the list, while the church’s efforts and its pride are in a churches name change. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Bath, NC September 20, 2017 at 12:41 am Saints are “individual mortal humans.” Just who are we to decide that somewhat is not “worthy.”This entire sense of “purging” is a tragedy for our church. Of course to insult “poor, clay-eating” southerners seems to be acceptable. Sadly it shows the ignorance of “activist” in our church. What makes it less painful is to realize how few people care one way or the other what the Episcopal Church does anymore. Enjoy the purging of history and the ridiculous actions of the radical left, but do realize that because of behavior and actions like this the Episcopal Church will continue to decline. The stain glass windows of Lee and Jackson were in the National Cathedral to show that we were again a “united nation,” certainly not to promote slavery. The Cathedral actually had the gall to “deconsecrate” memorials that were given and installed in the Cathedral. I have to say that at this time I am ashamed to be an Episcopalian. Associate Rector Columbus, GA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books John Simpson says: Thomas K. Chu, Esq. says: Bob Marsh says: September 19, 2017 at 7:45 pm This is the best decision. Lee himself never wanted his name to interfere with the reconciliation that he worked for after the War. I think that he would prefer art and statuary of him (if it must be) to show him with books in his hands. Perhaps another view would be of him kneeling for Communion beside a former slave. Notwithstanding, the noise that made this change happen is disturbing. That feelings. ignorance and caricatures would become a credible basis for evaluating issues and reputations is doomed to disaster. At the end of it all it must be remembered that the Congress valorized and made all Confederate soldiers United States veterans. After the War both North and South reconciled and Confederates were given amnesty to just go home without shame or blame attached. It was as though it was finally seen that powerful forces had trapped the country before the War and both sides regretted their acts, but firmly believed that they acted on honor. This is not finished. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington will soon be under the iconoclast glare.

September 19, 2017 at 7:49 pm I find it interesting that some are upset by a Church reclaiming its original name. An Episcopalian for 58 of my 71 years, I have always treasured the tendency of our denomination to name Churches for Saints or religious precepts, not for individual mortal humans. Discernment and civil debate over such a serious issue has apparently found an answer for the communicants in Lexington. We should respect their decision and only wish them God’s peace, this day and always.

It was many years before it dawned on me that southern churches were pursuing the exact opposite position. Ultimately, slavery was abolished at a great price for both sides. The South was not punished, rather precedence was given to reconciliation and healing of our nation. I would hope that, from our perspective of well over a century, we could all agree to continue that concept of reconciliation and healing, and now also recognize that blacks were never included in that process, nor have we ever fully acknowledged the damage done to those held in slavery. Please, let us pray for healing in our nation, for welcoming people who may not agree with us or look like us.

Why the police cannot be reformed

first_imgThese edited remarks were made at a June 11 webinar sponsored by Workers World Party:“Why we must abolish the police.” What a historical, earth-shattering shift just three months has made! Who would have thought the main debate in the country and the world would be whether the police should be defunded, dismantled or even abolished, due to not one but two pandemics interconnecting with each other — resting on the ever-crumbling foundation of capitalism and its permanent crisis since 2008?The COVID-19 pandemic, which accelerated in early March, kept millions of people indoors, wearing masks and social distancing, while killing over 100,000. Now there is a grim estimate that another 100,000 people in the U.S could perish before September.May 30 protest, Union Square, New York City.Credit: G. DunkelCOVID exposed how capitalism was not able to meet people’s most basic needs like health care, income, food, housing and more. Billions of dollars in emergency bailouts went to the corporations at the expense of the suffering and pain of the masses, including Black and other oppressed peoples who are dying at alarming numbers, disproportionate to whites in their overall representation in the population.And then, only weeks later, came another pandemic — another terrible outbreak of racism, the May 25 public torture and lynching of George Floyd by cops in Minneapolis, sparking a rebellion that still continues. The country was already sitting on a potential powder keg with the vigilante lynchings of Ahmaud Arbery in Brunswick, Ga.; Breonna Taylor, shot eight times while sleeping in Louisville, Ky.; Tony McDade, a Black trans man in Tallahassee, Fla., and more. Floyd’s murder lit the fuse of the powder keg that exploded worldwide and uncovered the ongoing war that Black and other oppressed peoples have suffered from for decades — police terror.The masses have been risking their health and the brutality of police to resist in the streets day and night — and say, “Enough is enough” about unpunished police lynchings.‘A grassroots groundswell rebellion that goes beyond reforms’What makes this rebellion so unique is its multinational character, led by angry young people, which is changing the political landscape forever on a global scale.  Every sector of society has been impacted with protests too numerous to mention.However, this is more than a rebellion against police terror. It is also a rebellion against white supremacy. Look at the pro-slavery, pro-cop and pro-colonial monuments and statues that have been burnt, torn down, defaced or beheaded — monuments that glorified butchers from Christopher Columbus to Belgium’s King Leopold to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee and Philadelphia Mayor Frank Rizzo.As someone whose roots are in the segregated South, this was so uplifting for me to see.The 72-year-old NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) — with deep roots in the white segregationist South — announced only yesterday a ban on Confederate flags at its events, unheard of three months ago.When top Pentagon officials announced the possibility of removing Confederate generals’ names from 10 military bases, Trump denounced that. Not surprising since his base is composed of KKK members, neofascists and white supremacists — many of whom are cops or cop sympathizers, as we saw in Charlottesville, Va.,  in 2017. And Trump’s first campaign rally was to be held in Tulsa, Okla., site of a racist white vigilante massacre of hundreds of Black people 99 years ago. Four years ago it was the scene of the police murder of Terence Crutcher. The white police officer was never charged.You know that the ruling class’s profits are threatened when they send out messages pledging to support “Black Lives Matter” — even the union-busting, trillion-dollar corporation Amazon! This ploy is all about trying to co-opt the mass movement.Local, state and federal legislators are scrambling to come up with police bandaid “reforms” to try to quell the protests. But right now there is a grassroots groundswell that goes beyond reforms — reforms that will not fundamentally change the untenable relations between the police and the masses, especially communities of color.Marx and Lenin analyzed how to abolish the policeFrom a Marxist perspective, the capitalist system depends on the police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as well as mass incarceration, the courts, prisons and biased laws, to maintain class dominance so billionaires can hold onto profits and to keep the masses powerless, defenseless and isolated.Here’s a quote from V.I. Lenin’s “State and Revolution,” written over a century ago, that still resonates today: “According to Marx, the state is an organ of class rule, an organ for the oppression of one class by another.  The state is, therefore, by no means a power forced on society from without.  Rather, it is a product of society at a certain stage of development; it is the admission that this society has become entangled in an insoluble contradiction with itself, that it has split into irreconcilable antagonisms which it is powerless to dispel.“But in order that these antagonisms, these classes with conflicting economic interests, might not consume themselves and society in fruitless struggle, it became necessary to have a power, seemingly standing above society, that would alleviate the conflict and keep it within the bounds of ‘order’; and this power, arisen out of society but placing itself above it, and alienating itself more and more from it, is the state.”This speaks to what is going on today, because not only the police, but the military are armed to the teeth, to repress the rebellion of the people who threaten fragile capitalist peace and stability for Wall Street bosses and bankers.This quote explains succinctly why we say, “Abolish the police!” This is not about good cops and bad cops. The police cannot be reformed because, historically, there can be no reconciliation between them and the masses. The police are an armed force created not to protect and serve the people but to protect and serve the private property of the rich.But this task of abolition cannot be completely and ultimately achieved unless the economic system the police and state “protects and serves” is also abolished. You can’t carry out one abolition without the other.Working-class power can change everythingOnly the working class, the class that produces everything and owns nothing, can achieve this, with the guidance of a revolutionary program of united, organized revolutionary forces.  At this juncture, a majority of the masses may say “Defund the police” because they want some relief from the pain they witness and experience on a daily basis. But even if the rebellion wins this concession, defunding the police is just the first important step forward.The direct intervention of the masses goes through various phases, with spontaneity being only one phase. Another phase may be some necessary assessment of next steps to move forward, in order to sustain momentum, until ultimately there is a national independent, revolutionary, developed program for real socialism — and not the social democracy that the Democrats hope to steer the masses toward with Biden as their 2020 candidate.Workers World Party is ready to play a vanguard role in this struggle. First, in being with the masses in solidarity with their transitional demands for community control. And at the same time, in bringing a down-to-earth Marxist program that exposes the root causes of white supremacy, the role of state terror and also shows how the fight against capitalism will break down barriers and build the class unity to meet all basic human needs.From everything we have seen over the past three months and before, the masses are ready for real social change. They are ready for revolutionary change which is monumental.  If those who are reading these words are also ready to make history, and you are looking for a revolutionary, socialist party that has been preparing for over 60 years for what we see today, please join our ranks with your ideas, energy and skills to make us stronger for our class, the movement and the struggle.Black Lives Matter!  Abolish the police and ICE!  Smash white supremacy!

Indiana Weather Forecast 1/30/2015

first_imgSOYBEAN Weather Indiana Weather Forecast 1/26/2015 SRW areas should be colder over the coming weeks. Moisture will be somewhat limited in northern SRW areas through midweek next week. However, if our system coming out of TX this weekend and early next week trends more toward the European solution, from midweek on we should see better action. Southern SRW areas get minor rains this week, better rains next week. Temps will be up and down over the next two weeks. While cold air comes in unabated over the eastern third of the country, in HRW areas there will be some back and forth, with a majority of the time showing temps at or above normal. Precipitation still looks mostly limited to the southern plains, in TX and OK, especially this week. We see .25”-1” rains over TX and OK from I-40 southward Friday and Saturday. Temps should be warm enough for mostly rain, although if moisture does push a bit farther north, it is conceivable that there can be some wet snow. After that we see some .25”-2” potential over TX, OK and southern KS for the 5th through the 9th. FSU wheat areas go slightly below normal for temperatures through a large part of this week. However, models show a strong Siberian high expanding and moving south over Tibet, which will produce some strong southerly flow up the backside for next week. This can actually push temps back to normal and above normal levels next week. That kind of flow should produce some precipitation, although at this time it looks mostly minor. The warming flow subsides toward the end of the forecast period with temps retur4ning to normal, and a precipitation outlook that includes quarter to half inch liquid equivalents from the 7th-10th. BEYOND INDIANA: By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 26, 2015 WHEAT Weather  Home News Feed Indiana Weather Forecast 1/26/2015 Facebook Twitter Weather that Impacts CORN: Scattered showers and thunderstorms are set to hit south African corn production areas through early Thursday, then the rest of the period will see limited to minor rains, as the big systems stay just off shore and scoot around the cape to the south. SHARE Temperatures will be below freezing over the northern half of the state, and no better than the mid 30s farther south for most of this week as Canadian high pressure drifts across the region through Wednesday. This should produce some sunshine, even though the colder air will be in control. Those temperature levels still are near normal for this time of year, though, so even though it feels colder, we really are going to be right where we should be. A nice front moves through Argentina corn areas from midweek this week through Saturday. This front should put down up to an inch of rain with locally higher amounts and coverage at 80% of Argentine corn areas. Temps this week will be warmer than normal to start, but as the rains come, we revert back to nearly normal. The extended period shows scattered showers around through the first half of next week with coverage at 50%, amounts up to half an inch, and then dry to finish the week. Another front for the 9th-10th can bring up to half an inch. Temps nearly normal for next week.That front for this week works right through south and southeast Brazil corn areas this weekend and early next week. The rain totals will be from half to 1.5”, coverage 80%. Another front hits for Wednesday/Thursday of next week, but may miss RGDS, instead coming in more from the west, across MGDS and then into Parana. Rains there can be from half to 2”, coverage 70%. Then mostly dry from late next week through the 10th. A weak wave moves through Thursday and will bring some clouds. Precipitation does not look all that impressive, but we can squeeze out a coating to an inch of snow with a few hundredths of an inch of new moisture coming along the front. This will be another clipper like system, meaning it will move through pretty quickly, and should be a 1 day affair or less. US Corn Belt areas continue to wait for a significant weather event. Models are in grand disagreement over the extended period, and nearby, cold air is more of a topic of discussion than serious precipitation. This week’s temps look to be near to slightly below normal, and the eastern Corn Belt will be well below normal next week. Western corn belt areas should be below normal too, but models are unable to get a grasp on where warm air will build too later next week…one model says it gets warmer all the way up to northern MN for the 5th, for example, and another says there is no way it happens. Model disagreement is often a sign of pattern change…so we like a colder solution, as it would be a change in pattern from the past week to 10 days. Facebook Twitter High pressure comes in behind that wave, and then we play yo-yo with our precipitation outlook for several days. A strong low in the southern plains will try and eject out over the weekend, but will likely fail, as the first wave of energy dies over the lower delta. However, the second attempt with better organization looks like it may be more successful for early next week. At this point, though, models are in full disagreement. The GFS model, which handled the last system very nicely, is now all over the place and mostly dry, while the European is adamant about moisture but unsure on track. This muddies the water substantially, and we will need to watch for a trend to emerge over the next couple of days. Right now we like the European solution because of how and where it is handling the cold air this week…but time will tell. In any case, we still look for February to be colder than normal and more active than the past 10 days have been.  Snows worked out as anticipated yesterday with a coating to 2 inches over most of the northern third of the state, a few higher amounts here and there. The rest of the week looks pretty slow weather wise, as cold air comes in, but we really don’t take it over the top until next week. . SHARE Nearby rains look similar to what we have seen thae past few weeks over Brazil’s soy belt – scattered, but timely, and for the most part just enough to avoid major complaints. Some will look at the lates model runs and try and talk up dryness…but honestly, this is a pattern that looks very similar to the status quo…so we will not buck and change our forecast. The extended period looks much wetter…with some combined 2-4 inch rain totals. But, to this point, we have not seen any of the moisture in any extended runs make it into the 7 day period with similar intensity…so at this point it is nice thought, but we will be in the “we will believe it when we see it” camp. Still…there really is not much that can be looked on as troubleseome in a majority of Brazil soy areas. The few areas in the east that have trended dry will stay that way… but as harvest really peaks in the next couple of weeks, most likely will not be complaining about dryness. Short term, no more than 1” of rain over the next 7 days combined, coverage at 60%.

Burkina Faso bans live political broadcasts for three months

first_img to go further Burkina FasoAfrica News Reporters Without Borders calls on Burkina Faso’s Higher Council for Communication (CSC) to rescind the three-month ban on live radio and TV broadcasts announced last week, which constitutes a grave act of censorship in the run-up to next October’s elections.When announcing the ban, which took effect on 7 May, the CSC referred to “numerous lapses” but did not go into detail. The CSC communiqué said public health programmes and programmes of a recreational, sentimental or cultural nature were exempted “as long as they stayed within their subject.”The CSC’s target is clearly political programmes, which now have to be pre-recorded and vetted so that they do not undermine “social cohesion and the success of the forthcoming elections.”“We call on the CSC to rescind its decision to ban live interactive programmes that allow the public to express its views and to be informed,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “Although the social climate is fragile in this transitional period, access to on-the-spot reporting is primordial, and live debates and exchanges of views in the run-up to elections are essential and must be able to take place in a spontaneous manner.”The ban has been widely criticized by media and journalists associations, civil society groups and even some officials. In a joint communiqué yesterday, media and journalists associations condemned the unfairness of a measure that does not distinguish between “media that respect the rules of interactive broadcasts (…) and those that do not respect them at all.”National Transition Council president Sheriff Sy condemned the ban today and urged the CSC to review it.After ruling Burkina Faso for 27 years, President Blaise Compaoré was ousted in an uprising on 31 October 2014. A new president and parliament is to be elected in October after a one-year “democratic transition.”Burkina Faso is ranked 46th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Mitchell scores 24, Jazz outlast Timberwolves 106-102

first_imgThe Timberwolves were missing Derrick Rose (sore ankle), Tyus Jones (ankle sprain) and Jeff Teague (sore foot), which caused some trouble in executing the offense and players getting the ball in unfamiliar positions.
