Una carta del Departamento de Correcciones de Pensilvania (DOC) recibida por WW Publishers el 11 de septiembre declaró: “El número del 31 de agosto del periódico Workers World ha sido denegado a todos los presos alojados en las prisiones de Pensilvania”. Su razón: el tema contiene artículos que “Llama a la gente a unirse a la lucha contra la supremacía blanca”.Este es la cuarta edición de WW negada a los prisioneros de Pensilvania desde la elección de Donald Trump. A principios de 2017, el DOC censuró los números 7, 12 y 13 por abogar por una huelga general global el 1 de mayo.La página 2 de la edición del 31 de agosto citada por el DOC presentó un artículo titulado “Trumka de AFL-CIO deja el consejo de Trump: ¡nunca debería haberse unido!” El DOC parece haberse ofendido con este párrafo: “La pregunta más grande para los sindicatos es, por supuesto, la conducta de Trumka. ¿Cómo podría justificarse tomar lugar en este horrible consejo, sabiendo todo sobre la retórica intolerante de Trump y la presencia de supremacistas blancos en el gabinete”? (Workers.org, Aug. 29)El artículo de la página 7 también citado era titulado “Una declaración de la rama Durham de Workers World Party: Sobre el derribo de la estatua confederada”. En la parte superior de la página 11 estaba “BULLETIN: Más arrestos de Durham – Llame al sheriff”. (workers.org, Aug. 29)Cada periódico de EUA ha publicado artículos este verano pasado sobre la creciente lucha contra la supremacía blanca. Los prisioneros tienen tanto derecho a leer WW-MO como cualquier otro periódico o revista, especialmente porque los artículos de WW-MO son escritos por activistas que desempeñan papeles principales en ese dinámico movimiento.DOC obligado a dar marcha atrás después de una campaña públicaWW Publishers presentó una apelación el 26 de septiembre, exigiendo que el DOC cese esta práctica inconstitucional para futuras ediciones; que se le dé a cada prisionera/o las copias que le fueron denegadas; y, para hacer que cada prisionera/o cuyos derechos constitucionales fueron denegados reciba $50 por cada edición ilegalmente denegada.En lugar de limitar la respuesta a una carta de apelación, WW-MO compartió ampliamente esta carta del DOC en las redes sociales para que el público pudiera ver las actitudes de supremacía blanca de la administración de la prisión en sus propias palabras. Los seres queridos tras las rejas en Pennsylvania y en cada estado están sujetos a esas actitudes y acciones racistas todos los días.WW-MO instó a las/os lectores y activistas a enviar quejas al Departamento de Correcciones, 1920 Technology Parkway, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050; 717-728-2573. Reporteras/os de RT, el periódico The Guardian, Newsweek y otros medios contactaron a WW-MO para obtener confirmación y comentarios. Muchas/os expresaron su incredulidad inicial de que el USDOC fuera tan descarado en su apoyo a la supremacía blanca hasta que confirmaron que la carta era legítima.El miembro del Partido WW-MO Mike Wilson, fue entrevistado en el programa “Radio Courtroom” de Michael Coard en WURD 96.1-FM, una importante estación de radio popular en la comunidad negra de Filadelfia.Para el 28 de septiembre, el DOC emitió una respuesta por escrito llamando a su propia carta del 11 de septiembre “una razón mal escrita para la negación”. Contrariamente a la carta anterior recibida por WW-MO, la nueva declaración afirmó que era “una negación de una institución correccional estatal a UN recluso”.Después de criticar su propia razón por su negativa como “groseramente inexacta”, el DOC reaccionó ante una amplia condena pública, alegando que “no tolera el racismo en ninguna forma y apoya las políticas de igualdad”.Workers World-MO aún no ha recibido una carta de respuesta oficial del DOC.Cerca de 300 prisioneras/os en Pensilvania tienen suscripciones gratuitas a WW-MO, cuya cabecera en la portada contiene las palabras: “¡Trabajadores y pueblos oprimidos del mundo uníos!” Se alienta a las/os lectores que deseen apoyar más suscripciones gratuitas a prisioneros a donar a través de patreon.com/wwp.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists SomaliaAfrica News RSF_en Organisation March 2, 2021 Find out more SomaliaAfrica to go further News RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region Help by sharing this information News Receive email alerts Follow the news on Somalia October 18, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police brutality, arbitrary decrees and filthy prisons make Puntland a high-risk region for the press Reporters Without Borders and its partner organisation, the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), today accused the police in the autonomous northeastern region of Puntland of “outrageous behaviour and ferocity” towards the independent news media.The two organisations said they were particularly appalled by prison conditions in Bossasso, where a journalist with a privately-owned radio station, the Somalia TV Network (STN), was detained for a second time and subjected to severe physical mistreatment at the end of September after he criticised conditions in the jail.“Despite our repeated appeals, the current president of Somalia’s transitional federal government, Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed, has failed to establish the rule of law in Puntland although he has a great deal of influence in the region,” the organisations said.“Nonetheless, urgent action is needed as the two main cities, Garowe and Bossasso, have become high-risk areas for journalists and the authorities have no qualms about gagging news media they dislike,” Reporters Without Borders and NUSOJ said. “If President Ahmed’s promises of democracy are not to lose all credibility in the eyes of the international community, he must stop ignoring the accelerating loss of press freedom in his own fiefdom.”STN editor in chief Awale Jama Salad was arrested in Bossasso, mistreated and detained in degrading conditions for the second time this year in September. His arrest, on 26 September, came after he gave an account on the air of his earlier detention in June and July. He was repeatedly punched by policemen following his arrest. When STN manager Abdisarak Shek Adun tried to visit Salad at the police station, he was turned away and told he would be arrested if he came back. Salad was transferred on 27 September to the headquarters of the Puntland Intelligence Service (PIS).Both Salad and Adun had been arrested on 30 June and detained for nearly two weeks as a result of an interview STN broadcast with a candidate for the post of Bossasso mayor. At the same time, several municipal council members were reportedly arrested after having releases broadcast on STN. The two journalists were finally freed on 12 July following a presidential pardon.When transferred to intelligence headquarters on 27 September, Salad was put in a small, poorly-ventilated room with open toilets along with some 70 other ordinary detainees, including suspected murderers, thieves and drug traffickers. The quantity of food they were given was not enough for all the detainees, with the result there were fights over the food. The only source of water was the toilet plumbing. Salad was finally released on 28 September following pressure from national and international organisations.NUSOJ secretary-general Omar Faruk Osman said: “The illegal detention and mistreatment of Salad were unspeakable abuses designed to send journalists a clear message that they should tone down their criticism of the government, police and civil service. Journalists are being given the choice of singing the praises of the authorities or resigning themselves to the stench of prison.”Before beginning to target STN, the authorities reduced the opposition weekly Shacab (The Voice of the People) to silence. Shacab editor Abdi Farah Nur and one of his journalists, Abdirashid Qoransey, were arrested by the Puntland police on 20 April, imprisoned and were tried a few days later on charges of “inciting violence and insulting the president” in two articles. They were both acquitted.Information ministry representatives and other officials began visiting the newspaper on 28 April about licence permits and taxes that Shacab has allegedly not paid, threatening during these visits to close the newspaper. This was finally done on 5 May in a decree by Puntland Vice-President Hassan Dahir Afqurac, which claimed that “articles recently published in Shacab were the cause of a crisis that could have led to violence. Fearing imprisonment, Nur fled the country. Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia News February 24, 2021 Find out more January 8, 2021 Find out more

WABC(NEW YORK) — A Brooklyn man is nearly $300 million richer than he was a month ago after winning the Powerball drawing.David Johnson, a 56-year-old truck driver, was presented on Friday with a check for $298.3 million by the New York Lottery, making him the winner of the second-largest jackpot in the lottery’s history, according to Powerball.“I can’t even eat. I start and can’t finish my food,” Johnson said during Friday’s news conference at Resorts World Casino in Queens. “I’m happy with joy inside.”He opted to take the lump-sum payment of $180,227,550, which means he’ll go home with more than $114 million after the required withholdings. Johnson said he’d bought the $5 winning ticket — with the numbers 5, 25, 38, 52, 67 and Powerball 24 — at Arnold’s Service Station across the street from his job at Iberia Food. According to ABC station WABC-TV, Johnson didn’t know he might have the winning ticket until he learned from a coworker that the gas station had sold it. Johnson said his friend urged him to check his numbers.Johnson, who moved to the U.S. from Jamaica at the age of 16, said he finally listened to his colleague and went to the gas station. He said he looked at the gas station’s lottery display board, checked his numbers got the shock of a lifetime.“I jumped up and down in the store,” Johnson said.He now has a lawyer to help him make financial decisions regarding him and his family but Johnson said he definitely planned to buy himself a red Porsche, something he’s wanted for a long time.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Jason Redmond/AFP/Getty Images(TACOMA, Wash.) — A man armed with a rifle, flares and “incendiary devices” at an U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center in Washington state was fatally shot by police early Saturday, authorities said.The unidentified man was allegedly throwing lit objects at buildings at Tacoma’s North West Detention Center on Saturday when he was shot following a confrontation with responding officers, Tacoma Police Department officials said in a statement released on Saturday.A worker first reported that a man outside the facility was armed with a rifle around 4 a.m., Tacoma police said.“It was reported the male was throwing incendiary devices at the Detention Center and then at vehicles in the parking lot,” the statement said. “A vehicle was set on fire. The male attempted to ignite a large propane tank and set out buildings on fire. The male continued throwing lit objects at the buildings and cars.”Upon arriving on the scene and locating the man, “officers called out shots were fired,” according to the Tacoma Police statement. “Officers noted that in addition to the weapon, he was wearing a satchel and had flares on his person.”Police did not immediately identify the deceased man, citing an ongoing investigation.None of the police officers involved in the incident were injured. They were not identified by name but police officials said that the four male officers involved were placed on paid leave per department policy after an officer-involved shooting.The officers involved include: a 45-year-old who has been with the Tacoma Police Department for 20 years, a 27-year old with four years on the force, a 28-year old with one year as a Tacoma police officer, and a 24-year old with nine months on the force.Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) from the Seattle field office also responded to the scene, according to officials.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Michael M. Santiago/Getty ImagesBY: MEREDITH DELISO, ABC NEWS (ROCHESTER, N.Y.) — After the third night of protests in Rochester, New York, nearly a dozen people were arrested and three officers were hospitalized as thousands took to the streets calling for justice for Daniel Prude, a Black man who died after being restrained by police during a mental health emergency.Friday saw the largest crowds gathered since the release of body camera footage that showed Rochester police officers pinning Prude, 41, on the ground and placing a bag over his head before he lost consciousness.Police declared Friday night’s protest an “unlawful assembly” following a peaceful gathering at Martin Luther King Jr. Park earlier in the evening, ABC News Rochester affiliate 13WHAM reported.Upwards of 2,000 people were in downtown Rochester Friday night, officials said. Many demonstrators could be seen wearing goggles and carrying umbrellas as they marched toward police barricades chanting “Black Lives Matter.”Police used pepper balls and pepper spray to disperse the crowd in response to “aggressive behavior,” the department said, citing protesters throwing rocks, bottles and other forms of debris.Shortly after midnight, officers also deployed tear gas after “a group of agitators began hurling commercial grade fireworks directly at officers,” the department said.Garbage cans and a bus shelter were also lit on fire.The arrests included disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly, rioting and inciting a riot. Four people were remanded to the Monroe County Jail and seven were issued appearance tickets, authorities said.Three officers were hospitalized, the department said. Two had cuts, severe swelling and contusions on their hands and legs, while a third had burns on their neck. All three were later released, officials said.Joe Prude, the brother of Daniel Prude, could be seen leading demonstrators on Friday. Prude’s family is calling for the seven officers involved in his brother’s fatal encounter to be fired and criminal charges to be filed.The seven officers were suspended with pay, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren announced Thursday, a day after the release of the body camera footage.“That horrific moment was something that I won’t wish upon nobody to see. Don’t no family member deserve to see their family member there being tortured like that,” Joe Prude told ABC News this week.Activists are also calling for the resignation of Warren and Rochester Police Chief La’Ron Singletary, and for police to stop using pepper spray and pepper balls on protesters.Elliot Shield, the attorney representing the Prude family, said the family intends to sue “everyone responsible for Daniel’s death.”“This incident is only coming to light right now because we requested the body camera footage and all of the police reports under New York’s Freedom of Information law,” said Shield.Officers responded to a 911 call made by Prude’s family on March 23 after they said he was going through a mental health issue. The body camera footage, first obtained by the Democrat and Chronicle, showed several officers approach Prude, who was naked and kneeling on the street.Prude appears in the video to comply with the officers’ orders and questions as they placed him in handcuffs. He began to shout and spit at the officers, who then placed a spit bag over his head, the video showed.Three officers are then seen pushing Prude to the ground and pinning him while he continues to shout and spit and eventually vomit, according to the video and police report. Prude appears to go lifeless minutes later.An ambulance is later seen arriving and a paramedic attempts to do CPR before Prude is put on a stretcher and driven away. Prude died a week later. The Monroe County medical examiner declared his death a homicide due to “complications of asphyxia,” according to the preliminary autopsy report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
Women lose out in interview biasOn 10 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today Women are being subtlydiscriminated against in job interviews, according to British PsychologicalSociety research.City University’s DrJo Silvester, author of the research, monitored the type of questionsinterviewers asked male and female job candidates looking for graduate-levelpositions in a multinational organisation. She found that men were given moreopportunity to shine by being asked more open questions.She said, “Theopportunity for talking and selling themselves was not as frequent for women asit is for men. That means women have to try harder.”Women were better atface-to-face interviews, but worse in phone interviews. She urged HRdepartments to look carefully at the way managers interviewed job candidates.”We are unlikely to understand how discrimination occurs until we considerwhat is actually said and how it is said during a selection interview,”she said.
