Cleveland Black Lives Convening: ‘One of the best experiences of my life’

Imani HenryImani Henry, an organizer of the People’s Power Assembly, attended the Movement for Black Lives National Convening at Cleveland State University from July 24 to July 26. Henry reported on this historic occasion at a Workers World Party meeting on July 31 in New York City and described it as “one of the best experiences of my life.”Nearly 2,000 people participated. They came to Cleveland on buses or airplanes from all over the country. A busload of activists came from Los Angeles, as well as from Harlem and Brooklyn, N.Y. There were international representatives from Africa, with others traveling from Canada, the Dominican Republic, England and Germany.Henry explained that the event commemorated the two-year anniversary of Black Lives Matter’s founding, amidst mass outrage at the July 2013 acquittal of racist vigilante George Zimmerman, for killing African-American youth Trayvon Martin. The organization, which describes itself as a national network, mobilized to support the movement in Ferguson, Mo., protesting the police killing of Michael Brown, another African-American youth. BLM now has chapters all over the country which have organized and joined protests against racist killings by police and vigilantes.The Movement for Black Lives blog explains: “This historic event comes at a pivotal time for the growing movement for Black lives in the United States. Black people are facing unabated police violence, increasing criminalization, a failed economic system, a broken education system, and the loss of our communities to gentrification and development. Our trans and queer communities face the increased risk of physical and economic violence.“Many have taken to the streets in response to this ongoing state of emergency. … Black people from across the country have led a wave of resistance that has spread around the world. A new crop of freedom fighters has emerged and urgent desire for Black victory has been rekindled in the hearts of seasoned activists. …“This convening presents an opportunity for us to reflect on our histories of struggle, build a sense of fellowship … and begin to heal from the many traumas we face. … We will strengthen a budding community that is diverse in voices, origin, perspective and strategy.”This gathering was held in the city where 12-year-old Tamir Rice was gunned down. Henry told the meeting that the night before the program began, its participants demonstrated against the racist police murders of Rice and so many other African Americans.Henry stressed that BLM’s co-founders and leaders are Black women — Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullers and Opal Tometi — and that two are queer-identified. He told of BLM’s “Day of Action” in solidarity with Black trans women under the slogan “Black Trans Lives Matter.”There was a strong youth presence. Many who came have been activists for the last two years, since BLM began. Among the many communities who attended were Black-identified Latinos and Latinas — or “Blatinas,” as they call themselves. The Dream Defenders, led by Black and Brown youth, were there. Ramona Africa was there. Freed four-decade prisoner Eddie Conway and other former political prisoners participated, including Dhoruba bin Wahad.‘All Black Lives Matter!’There were many highlights of this monumental event. Before a standing-room-only crowd, the conference opened with its first panel. Up on stage were family members of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and other African-American victims of police and vigilante violence. The audience leaped to their feet chanting, “Black Lives Matter!” for 15 minutes. “Black Trans Lives Matter!” was another strong chant as was “All Black Lives Matter!”During much of the weekend, Henry participated in the Ella Baker Freedom School, a “liberated space” with revolutionary child care. The Cleveland Freedom School participated, too. They discussed the Civil Rights and Black Liberation movements. Recognizing that youth and children are part of today’s movement, they talked about their experiences and thoughts about police brutality and activism in Ferguson and other cities. Songs of freedom and struggle rang out.Among the many workshops was a popular one organized by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, which discussed creating people’s power in the U.S.At the closing session, everyone was urged to take care of themselves. The theme prevailed that “We believe we can win!” Everyone was reminded to join in actions in Ferguson on Aug. 8 and 9, the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death — or to participate in solidarity actions in New York City, on the West Coast and elsewhere.Yet, the day was not over, stressed Henry. Convention participants rushed to defend a 14-year-old Black youth who had been stopped, frisked and arrested by Cleveland police at a bus stop near the venue. Activists surrounded the police car in which he was being held, locking arms in a direct action protest and chanting, “Let him go!” Police officers then responded by pepper-spraying everyone on the line.Then, 75 New York City activists took over a restaurant’s parking lot in solidarity. Some people rushed back from the airport to help.Suddenly, medical and legal advisers appeared. The young man’s mother was contacted, and he was ultimately released. People’s power prevailed.Among representatives of the many organizations which attended were other members of the People’s Power Assembly, the revolutionary youth group Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST), and Workers World Party.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more

The youth service intends to bring together three existing facilities in disparate locations on the northside into a state-of-the-art premises worth €1.8 million, and as first revealed in the Limerick Post.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Residents against the plans turned out at an information evening held in Ballynanty Hall on Tuesday evening to protest, fearing that the facility would contribute to anti-social behaviour and have a negative impact on local life.“We completely empathise with the concerns of locals and their right to object to the project,” said LYS Director Catherine Kelly.“But we have no doubt that many of those who turned up to state their objections would fully support it were they fully in the picture”.She explained that while the information session was positive, it uncovered a degree of misinformation among members of the community.“We have to put our hands up and say that if we were starting out again we would have held last night’s information session weeks earlier.“We don’t expect to get everyone onside and we will continue to respect all opinions”.Deputy Willie O’Dea attended and said residents were hoping for a question and answers session rather than the format provided, which consisted of information stands.“The youth service made the mistake of being a long way down the road with plans before consulting with residents,” he told the Limerick Post.“There are a lot of middle- aged and elderly people living in the area and their main concerns are that their allotments and green space will be taken over, that it will drive anti-social behaviour to the area and be obtrusive.“The facility is planned for the middle of a residential area”.However, Ms Kelly stated that research has shown instances of anti-social behaviour and vandalism decrease significantly when young people have the advantage of a youth centre in their facilities.The building will bring together the Northside Youth Cafe, an outreach project, the Ballynanty Garda Youth Diversion Project, Moyross Family Support Project and Ballynanty Youth Club.last_img read more

However, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) on May 11 refused to do say stating that ICMR had been dissolved of COVID 19 vaccine research as department of Bio technology had taken the lead in this regard, he contends.In light of the above, petitioner seeks to challenge this inaction of the Government, even though the High Court had directed the concerned authorities to comply. “That the acts and action of the respondent authorities are highly condemned and for the benefit and betterment of the society at large, his application for doing research along with sponsorship must be allowed forthwith.” – Excerpt of PetitionThe petition contends that the by disallowing the petitioner’s request for setting up facility and granting sponsorship, the Government and concerned authorities therein “can be held liable for the deaths so far” and that not “even sponsoring proposals for development of the said vaccination is highly discriminatory under Article 14 of the Constitution of India”. In this backdrop, the plea states,”the said omission is preventing the populace of the State of West Bengal as well as the entire country from accessing an infection free environment, thereby infringing Articles 21, 48A & 51(g) of the Constitution of India”Further, the plea states that by disallowing the petitioner to do research during this “emergent situation”, especially since the whole world and scientific community is in a hunt for the vaccine, the Government has acted as a “stumbling block” which is “totally arbitrary”.Additionally, the plea prays for full and complete disclosure of details of funds allotted, timeline, procedure and projects sponsored by the Government “so far for developing the COVID19 vaccine and status of the said projects so far”.The petitioner prays that in the event ICMR fails to allow the petitioner to conduct the requisite research, the Court must declare the failure to disallow the research activities from taking place or non-grant of sponsorship as a “scam” and “saddling of responsibility” by ICMR and also hold the body responsible for all deaths due to COVID19.Click Here To Download PetitionSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

He had urged before the court that, being a Green Card holder, it was mandatory for him to return to the US within a stipulated period of his departure from that country, failing which the conditions for revalidation of the Green Card would not be fulfilled. However, the High Court declined to relax the conditions imposed by it for the grant of interim bail on the ground that an FIR has been registered against him.While allowing his appeal, the bench observed that the lodging of an FIR should not in the facts of the present case be a bar on the travel of the appellant to the US for eight weeks to attend to the business of revalidating his Green Card. It observed:”The language of Section 437(3) of the CrPC which uses the expression “any condition… otherwise in the interest of justice” has been construed in several decisions of this court. Though the competent court is empowered to exercise its discretion to impose “any condition” for the grant of bail under Sections 437 (3) and 439 (1) (a) of the CrPC, the discretion of the court has to be guided by the need to facilitate the administration of justice, secure the presence of the accused and ensure that the liberty of the accused is not misused to impede the investigation, overawe the witnesses or obstruct the course of justice” (Para 14)”The conditions which a court imposes for the grant of bail – in this case temporary bail – have to balance the public interest in the enforcement of criminal justice with the rights of the accused. The human right to dignity and the protection of constitutional safeguards should not become illusory by the imposition of conditions which are disproportionate to the need to secure the presence of the accused, the proper course of investigation and eventually to ensure a fair trial. The conditions which are imposed by the court must bear a proportional relationship to the purpose of imposing the conditions. The nature of the risk which is posed by the grant of permission as sought in this case must be carefully evaluated in each case.” (Para 21)The court permitted him to travel to the US, subject to his furnishing an undertaking before the date of travel that he will return to India after the expiry of a period of eight weeks and that he shall be available on all dates of hearing before the court of criminal jurisdiction, unless specifically exempted from personal appearance.

Zillow using Zestimate to streamline cash offers for some homes

first_img Tags Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink The move to streamline the cash offer process amounts to a greater reliance on the Zestimate and may signal Zillow’s growing confidence in the home-valuation tool. Zillow COO Jeremy Wacksman told CNN Business that the company seeks to reach “one-click nirvana.”“(It’s about) making the real estate transaction experience more seamless, more easy, more integrated,” Wacksman said.Currently, homeowners in some locations can fill out a questionnaire, send in photos and get a cash offer from Zillow within days. Zillow then sends an inspector to the home to assess needed repairs and adjust the offer. Zillow charges sellers a fee that averages about 7.5 percent.Zillow’s home-valuation tool, which is based on comparable sales data and public records, has stirred controversy over the years. In 2020 a judge dismissed a suit that alleged Zillow broke antitrust law by allowing some partners to move the Zestimate to a less-prominent position on the online listing.[CNN] — Georgia Kromrei brokeragesResidential Real Estatezillowcenter_img Zillow COO Jeremy Wacksman (Zillow, iStock)Zillow is using its “Zestimate” to streamline its process for making cash offers on some homes.The Seattle-based listings giant will now allow homeowners in certain markets to receive a cash offer sight-unseen, CNN reported.
