Yet divisions between two opposing members of the committee have deepened and Bank of England governor Mervyn King has faced criticism from fellow MPC voters.American member Adam Posen told MPs that “a number of people on the committee” thought the support for the coalition government’s cuts last spring was “excessively political.”Posen has also argued for a further period of quantitative easing (QE2) in the UK, creating a three way split in the MPC.Andrew Sentance, whose term on the committee expires in May, is expected to again vote for an increase in rates by 0.25 per cent.Sentance has recently repeated his view that the MPC needs to tackle inflation. Consumer price inflation (CPI) rose to 3.2 per cent in October, considerably above the Bank of England’s two per cent target.Yet he is unlikely to be joined by any of his colleagues on the MPC this week, according to Simon Ward of Henderson Global Investors. “When a policy change comes, it will be a mass movement rather than individuals splitting off into factions,” said Ward.Governor King has insisted that medium term inflation is under control. And the Bank’s chief economist Spencer Dale said that while the MPC “remains as hard nosed as ever” on inflation, the “current focus is on providing the stimulus necessary to support the recovery.” Show Comments ▼ whatsapp MPC split but rates stay low

Rochester, N.Y. – Protesters took over downtown streets during rush hour here to protest the death of India Cummings, who died in police custody in Buffalo, N.Y., in February. “India Cummings! Remember my name!” chanted protesters as they blocked intersections on May 24 and shut down the Rochester Transit System Bus Terminal for nearly two hours.The demonstration followed a rally at the Liberty Pole, which was interrupted by a torrential downpour. The demonstration was organized by the Black Panther Party of Rochester and BLACK (Building Leadership and Community Knowledge), an organization of African-American youth. They were joined by several other local community organizations including Workers World Party.Cummings, who has roots in Rochester, was taken to an emergency room with cardiac arrest and showing signs of extreme trauma: a skull injury, bruises, life-threatening blood clots, broken ribs and severe dehydration. An investigation into the matter by the New York Commission of Corrections has so far revealed nothing, and family lawyers have been stonewalled at every turn by the Erie County District Attorney’s office.Matthew A. Albert, who is representing the Cummings family, said that Cummings “went from physically healthy to dead in three weeks. … Ultimately, what we want is accountability. … The silence is intolerable.”“We want to draw attention to what happened. Sadly, these things happen everywhere,” said Tanya Noel, a leading organizer of BLACK. “Agitate, organize, educate. It’s to get people together to begin the education and organization that’s necessary.” (Democrat & Chronicle, May 26)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
El presidente saliente dio otro paso público engañoso el 2 de diciembre: ordenó a los 700 soldados estadounidenses restantes que salieran de Somalia. Estas tropas son parte de la fuerza estadounidense AFRICOM que promueve los intereses imperialistas estadounidenses en toda África.Primero se trasladarán a la cercana Kenia, también en África Oriental. Las tropas estadounidenses han estado llevando a cabo una extensa guerra con drones contra la organización con sede en Somalia, al-Shabab. Además de retirar las tropas de Somalia, el secretario interino de Defensa, Christopher Miller, anunció planes de la administración en noviembre para reducir las tropas estadounidenses de 3.000 a 2.500 en Irak y de 4.500 a 2.500 en Afganistán a mediados de enero.Ambos grandes partidos capitalistas han iniciado guerras. No espere que esto cambie.Tanto las administraciones republicanas como las demócratas han ordenado, desde 1990, importantes guerras de agresión contra Irak, Yugoslavia, Afganistán, nuevamente Irak y con fuerzas más pequeñas contra Siria, Libia y Ucrania. Han llevado a cabo huelgas en África y se han involucrado en la subversión con el objetivo de derrocar gobiernos progresistas en América Latina.Los establecimientos del Partido Republicano y Demócrata comparten un objetivo común de política exterior: mantener y, si es posible, aumentar la dominación económica y estratégica de Estados Unidos en el mundo. El Pentágono, el Departamento de Estado, la CIA y varios otros sectores del aparato estatal hacen cumplir esta estrategia, independientemente del partido que dirija el gobierno.Cada invasión, bombardeo u otra intervención de Estados Unidos ha provocado un enorme sufrimiento en los países objetivo, a menudo con millones de víctimas. Las intervenciones llenan de ganancias a las industrias militares estadounidenses.Si bien el pretexto para estas intervenciones pueden ser los derechos humanos, los derechos de las mujeres o detener el terrorismo, la mayor parte de las veces la verdadera razón es apoderarse de recursos, generalmente petróleo, o eliminar un problema estratégico.A medida que la autoridad económica y moral del imperialismo estadounidense declina en comparación con los rivales imperialistas (Europa, Japón) y especialmente con la China socialista, Washington recurre a las armas, donde todavía es el número uno. Por lo tanto, el impulso por mantener la hegemonía empuja al mundo hacia la guerra sin importar qué partido ocupe el cargo.Washington a veces recurre a otras herramientas, desde mercenarios contratados hasta sanciones económicas, para lograr el mismo objetivo de dominación, con o sin subversión o bombardeo. Las sanciones a veces matan a tanta gente como la guerra.En 2016, como táctica electoral, Trump criticó “las guerras interminables de Washington”, aunque las apoyó a todas cuando comenzaron. Después de sus cuatro años en el cargo, continúan los más largos, Irak y Afganistán. Puede parecer que sus últimos “retiros” están tratando de mantener una promesa electoral de 2016, pero el escepticismo está justificado.Mientras tanto, aumentó el presupuesto del Pentágono a niveles récord, exacerbó una confrontación con China, se retiró del tratado de misiles de alcance intermedio con Rusia, llevó a cabo muchos más ataques con aviones no tripulados en África, abandonó un acuerdo histórico con Cuba, arruinó el tratado nuclear con Irán y asesinó a un importante líder político iraní, o dos.Sin embargo, la errática agresión de Trump no es motivo para darles un paseo gratis a los demócratas. El representante Jim Langevin, uno de los principales demócratas de la Cámara y presidente del subcomité de inteligencia y amenazas emergentes de la Cámara, expuso el belicismo del Partido Demócrata. Calificó la retirada de Trump de Somalia como “una rendición a al-Qaida y un regalo para China”. (theguardian.com, 4 de diciembre)Para las fuerzas pacifistas y antiimperialistas dentro de los EE.UU., cualquier debate sobre Somalia debe tomarse como una apertura a las demandas de la prensa para sacar a las tropas estadounidenses de sus más de 800 bases militares en todo el mundo, detener todas las sanciones impuestas por EE.UU. y acabar con la dominación mundial por Estados Unidos.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

A colleague remembers seeing her leave the Addis Ababa lawcourts, proudly clutching copies of her articles as evidence of her work.

Facebook Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – February 20, 2021 WhatsApp WhatsApp UK urges UN resolution for pause in conflicts for virus jabs Twitter Pinterest Local NewsWorld News TAGS Pinterest UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Britain circulated a draft resolution to the U.N. Security Council on Friday demanding that all warring parties immediately institute a “sustained humanitarian pause” to enable people in conflict areas to be vaccinated for COVID-19. The proposed resolution reiterates the council’s demand last July 1 for “a general and immediate cessation of hostilities” in major conflicts from Syria and Yemen to Central African Republic, Mali and Sudan and Somalia. The appeal was first made by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on March 23, 2020, to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. The draft “emphasizes the need for solidarity, equity, and efficacy and invites donation of vaccine doses from developed economies to low- and middle-income countries and other countries in need, including through the COVAX Facility,” an ambitious World Health Organization project to buy and deliver coronavirus vaccines for the world’s poorest people. The British draft stresses that “equitable access to affordable COVID-19 vaccines, certified as safe and efficacious, is essential to end the pandemic.” It would recognize “the role of extensive immunization against COVID-19 as a global public good for health in preventing, containing, and stopping transmission, in order to bring the pandemic to an end.” The draft, obtained by The Associated Press, follows up on British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab’s appeal to the 15-member Security Council on Wednesday to adopt a resolution calling for local cease-fires in conflict zones to allow the delivery of COVID-19 vaccines. Britain says more than 160 million people are at risk of being excluded from coronavirus vaccinations because they live in countries engulfed in conflict and instability. “Cease-fires have been used to vaccinate the most vulnerable communities in the past,” Raab said. “There’s no reason why we can’t… We have seen it in the past to deliver polio vaccines to children in Afghanistan, just to take one example.” At Wednesday’s council meeting, Guterres sharply criticized the “wildly uneven and unfair” distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, saying 10 countries have administered 75% of all vaccinations and demanding a global effort to get all people in every nation vaccinated as soon as possible. The U.N. chief told the high-level council meeting that 130 countries have not received a single dose of vaccine and declared that “at this critical moment, vaccine equity is the biggest moral test before the global community.” The coronavirus has infected more than 109 million people and killed at least 2.4 million of them. As manufacturers struggle to ramp up production of vaccines, many countries complain of being left out and even rich nations are facing shortages and domestic complaints. Guterres’ appeal for cease-fires last March to deliver COVID-19 medical items received some initial support, but the cease-fires were almost always short-lived. While speed of developing vaccines has been impressive, COVAX has already missed its own goal of beginning coronavirus vaccinations in poor countries at the same time that shots were rolled out in rich countries late last year. WHO says COVAX needs $5 billion in 2021. The draft resolution calls for the COVID-19 vaccination plans of countries to include “those at a higher risk of developing severe COVID-19 symptoms and the most vulnerable, including frontline workers, older people, refugees, internally displaced people, stateless people, migrants, persons with disabilities, among others, as well as people living in areas under the control of any non-state armed group.” The proposed measure calls for increased scientific collaboration on new variants of COVID-19. It asks Guterres to report at least every 90 days on all impediments to the COVID-19 response, including vaccination programs, in countries where conflicts and humanitarian emergencies are occurring. It’s not clear whether the resolution will be adopted. Britain’s U.N. ambassador, Barbara Woodward, said Wednesday that humanitarian organizations and U.N. agencies need the full backing of the council to be able to carry out their job. Russia’s U.N. ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia, objected to the council focusing on equitable access to vaccines, saying this went beyond its mandate to preserve international peace and security. He indicated Moscow was not interested in a new resolution.
