Anti-Imperialism 101 discussion held in Philadelphia

first_imgThe Philadelphia branch of Workers World Party held its third Anti-Imperialism 101 open discussion on Feb. 9. This month’s event focused on Black Liberation and Anti-Imperialism, with guest speakers Makasi Motema from the Peoples Power Assemblies-NYC and Megan Malachi from Philly REAL Justice.Attendees in Feb. 9 open discussion.Motema described how capitalist propaganda directed against Black and Brown workers in the belly of the beast parallels the lies told about liberation struggles in the Global South. He laid out how the bosses create a narrative to portray their victims as “violent, lacking in culture and pathologically corrupt.” The capitalists’ narrative also claims that the violence they unleash against people of color is somehow beneficial to them.Motema cited George Zimmerman’s murder of Trayvon Martin and the U.S. war against Iraq as examples wherein the actual victims were portrayed as the “threat” to their oppressors.Megan Malachi led the group in a reading of a passage from Assata Shakur’s autobiography, “Assata.”  The group also read from Mumia Abu-Jamal’s book, “Murder Incorporated,” and watched a short clip of the martyred president of Africa’s Burkina Faso, Thomas Sankara, discussing imperialism. A lively discussion followed.Those attending included MOVE Minister of Confrontation Pam Africa, who received a long round of applause when she introduced herself.  The next session of Anti-Imperialism 101 on the subject of Anti-Imperialism and Gender Oppression will be on March 10.— Report by Ted KellyFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The TRUST Act makes clear when local law enforcement may respond to immigration detainer requests by federal authorities. It prohibits detention of undocumented immigrants for deportation unless a serious offense was committed. This limits the reach of a controversial federal program called Secure Communities, which currently allows the Department of Homeland Security to screen and transfer detained individuals to federal custody if they are undocumented.“I’m thrilled to see California leading the effort to fix our broken immigration system. The TRUST Act removes the threat of deportation from California residents who simply want to be our fellow citizens, and focuses solely on people with violent records. As a result, more resources will be dedicated to remove those who pose a real threat, trust will be restored in local law enforcement, and more families will remain united as we continue fighting for a long-term federal solution to fix our broken immigration system.” Top of the News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website last_img read more

A Division Bench of Justices Bharati Dangre and MS Sonak on Monday directed the state to issue a fresh notification ensuring reservations for women and other communities to ensure that the process is completed by 15 April 2021. The challenge A batch of nine petitions assailed a Notification issued by the Director and ex-officio Additional Secretary (Municipal Administration)/ Urban Development, Goa on 4 February 2021 declaring reservation of wards in the municipal councils. The prayers in the pleadings by the petitioners varied on the aspect of reservation that was challenged. The gist of the pleadings and the contentions are as below: -Less than 1/3rd seats were reserved for women in certain councils-The mandate of seat rotation, as required by the Goa Municipalities Act, 1968 for the purpose of reservation was not complied with. -Reservation of seats for candidates belonging to Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), and Other Backward Caste (OBC) communities were arbitrarily decided without regard to their share in the population in the particular ward, as was necessitated by the Goa Municipalities Act, 1968.-There is an absence of policy with regard to deciding rotation of seats. The state averred that there was no prejudice caused to any of the petitioners by the notification. The Advocate General submitted that the elections were imminent and that no interference with the elections could be permitted at this stage. Rebutting the contention on arbitrariness, the Advocate General stated that merely because there is no policy, it does not necessarily lead to arbitrariness, unless and until any particular instance is pinpointed. On reservations, the judgment records the Advocate General as saying, “if the reservation quantified result into a fraction, and if the rounding off is taken to be 1 seat, this addition of one seat will have a cascading effect and therefore the fraction has been ignored in Mormugao and Mapusa Municipal Council and this according to him is within legal parameters” The State Election Commission admitted in Court that reserving below 33% of seats was a constitutional infraction, but stated that it was ‘helpless’ and has no choice but to proceed with the elections, since the power to reserve seats was within the purview of the director. What the Court held Justice Dangre and Sonak in their concurring opinions disagreed with the contention of the Advocate General as regards reservations for women. Since the Constitution as well as the Goa Municipalities Act mandated a reservation of not less than one-third seats, there was no ambiguity. Censuring the State Election Commission for his helplessness, the Judges came down heavily upon the Commission stating that it was bound to apply constitutional principles rather than rushing with the elections.”The silence on part of the constitutional functionary, according to us, is highly detrimental to the democratic concept of this country. We say nothing more”. On arbitrariness and the absence of a policy governing reservations for members of the SC, ST, and OBC communities, the Court emphasized upon the necessity for a policy to determine reservations to prevent arbitrariness. Pointing out that the Goa Municipal Councils Act itself indicated that populations were to be the basis upon which reservations were fixed, the Court directed a fresh notification of reservations in the councils of Sanguem, Mormugao, Mapusa, Margao and Quepem.

Saudi Aramco profits down 20% in 2019 on low oil prices and disrupted production

first_imgSaudi Aramco profits hit by rollercoaster 2019A rollercoaster 2019 for Saudi Aramco also included a drone missile attack on its Abqaiq and Khurais facilities in September, which temporarily forced it to suspend production to the tune of around five million barrels per day (bpd).The onset of coronavirus has further disrupted the market since the turn of the year, hitting oil producers hard as both demand and commodity prices plummet.Company president and CEO Amin Nasser said: “2019 was an exceptional year for Saudi Aramco. Through a variety of circumstances – some planned and some not – the world was offered unprecedented insight into our agility and resilience.“The recent Covid-19 outbreak and its rapid spread illustrate the importance of agility and adaptability in an ever-changing global landscape.“We have already taken steps to rationalise our planned 2020 capital spending.“As the world deals with the difficult and dual challenge of satisfying demand for more energy alongside responding to the rising desire for cleaner energy, I believe we are well-positioned given our oil production is among the least carbon-intensive in the world.” Despite completing its record-breaking IPO in December, profits at Saudi Aramco fell to $88.2bn in 2019 – while Covid-19 and oil price crash spell further dangers ahead Saudi Aramco’s Khurais production plant (Credit: Saudi Aramco) Profits at Saudi Aramco fell more than 20% in 2019 on low crude oil prices and production volumes, prompting it to cut spending plans for the year ahead.Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil and gas producer, the world’s largest, said capital expenditure for 2020 had been revised down to between $25bn and $30bn – compared to $32.8bn in 2019 – and that spending plans for 2021 are now “under review”.Despite the fall in profits, from $111.1bn in 2018 to $88.2bn in 2019, the national oil firm remains the world’s most profitable company – as well as the most valuable publicly-listed firm following its record-breaking IPO last December that raised more than $30bn on a $1.7tn market valuation.Lower refining and chemical margins, as well as a $1.6bn impairment charge associated with its Sadara Chemical Company subsidiary, were also attributed to the fall in profits throughout the year.Shares in Saudi Aramco, which is listed on the domestic Tadawul stock exchange, were down almost 3% in trading today (16 March), sitting at around 27.9 riyals per share at the time of writing – which compares to the 32 riyals IPO purchase price.The company confirmed it paid $73.2bn in dividends in 2019, and intends to complete the $75bn dividend for 2020 set out in its IPO prospectus.center_img Covid-19 and Saudi-Russia price war have sent oil prices into freefallAs the de facto leader of the Opec organisation, Saudi Arabia agreed production-cut measures last December to bolster oil prices in the face of global oversupply – but the impact of coronavirus since January has exacerbated the situation, sending crude prices into freefall.Failed negotiations between Opec and Russia – the nominal leader of the Opec+ alliance – to implement additional cuts in response to Covid-19 left the two major oil producers in a stand-off that has sparked a price war and commitments from Saudi Arabia to raise output and flood the market with heavily-discounted reserves.The kingdom plans to increase current production levels by 2.5 million bpd to 12.3 million bpd next month, once the existing Opec cutback agreement expires.Last week, Saudi Aramco confirmed it had been instructed by Riyadh to increase its maximum sustainable production capacity from 12 million bpd to 13 million bpd.Prices of Brent crude are currently less than $33 per barrel – which compares to roughly $50 per barrel before the Opec+ fall-out and $70 per barrel in January before the spread of the pandemic.last_img read more

Sceneplay: The Awful Truth

first_imgby Laura WilliamsFrom the 1930s until as late as the mid-’60s, American movies were subject to a production code that imposed massive restrictions upon what they could and could not show on the screen. The list of rules included regulations banning portrayals of ‘vulgarity’, ‘excessive or lustful kissing’, ‘sex perversion’ (homosexuality), and forbidding the villain from ever being allowed to get away with his crimes. The resulting films portrayed an idealised America, a reassuring social morality and an optimism about everyday life which was lacking in the decade following the Wall Street Crash. The Awful Truth is one such film, but it deserves to be remembered as more than just another 1930s slapstick comedy. Cary Grant and Irene Dunne star as a newly separated couple, who spend the ninety days before their divorce is finalised sabotaging each other’s new romances, obviously still crazy about each other. The witty dialogue and physical humour creates a hugely underrated comedy film of a quality rarely seen since.The couple’s misadventures culminate with Grant arriving at Dunne’s singing teacher’s house, suspecting the two are having an affair, and he tries to barge in. During a tussle with the doorman, Grant does a hilarious pratfall – almost his trademark in his early films, a talent from his vaudeville days – he lands almost entirely on his face. Eventually bursting through to the living room, he find his wife singing to a crowded room, with her teacher accompanying her on the piano. Astonished, Grant slowly takes off his hat, listening to his wife sing, then sits down awkwardly on a chair at the back, while Dunne glares at him, still singing. It’s not over yet, as Grant leans back on his chair and falls again, and the fall just keeps on going. Eventually, he rights himself and looks over to his wife with an expression of endearing helplessness. As Dunne catches her husband’s eye in the last phrase of the piece, she laughs a little out loud – perfectly on key – and then ends the song. She’s not only realised that her husband has shown up because he’s still in love with her, but also that she’s still in love with him, and all she can do is laugh. The scene is a perfect moment in life and cinema, showing love, huge and simple, in that instant – and it gets me every time.What makes this film even more enchanting is that much of the script was improvised. When shooting began, director Leo McCarey only had a very sketchy script for the cast to work with, and both the leads, convinced that without a script the film would be a flop, tried to walk out. (Cary Grant allegedly wrote an eight-page letter to the film studio entitled ‘Things that are wrong with this picture’.) As it turned out, Grant was the one who was wrong. Irene Dunne was nominated for an Oscar for her performance, and Grant was rocketed into super stardom, becoming one of the most sought after leading men for the next three decades.last_img read more
