Gabriela members, April 29.The New York Chapter of Gabriela (General Assembly Binding Women for Reforms, Integrity, Equality, Leadership and Action) — formerly known as Filipinas for Rights and Empowerment — held its 10th anniversary celebration on April 29 in Manhattan with talks, videos, spoken word, music and dance. The room was decorated with beautiful banners and placards highlighting Gabriela campaigns since 2007.This mass women’s group, founded in the Philippines in 1984, has chapters all over the world, including in U.S. cities from New York to Los Angeles. Its name is in honor of Gabriela Silang, a revolutionary Filipina leader who fought against Spain’s brutal colonial rule in the Philippines in the mid-1700s.A keynote address was given by Monica Moorehead, a co-coordinator of the International Working Women’s Day Coalition in New York City, which was honored with a Modern Day Gabriela Award, along with our groups.Moorehead stated, “Wherever Gabriela has a presence, they never hesitate to express solidarity with the struggles on a local and national level, be it Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock, Fight for $15 and, of course, the plight of migrants. Gabriela has a clear understanding of the global role of the class struggle inside the belly of the beast, especially the struggle against white supremacy and its connection to worldwide struggles, including in the Philippines, where the struggle for worker and peasant liberation from U.S. imperialism is at such a high level.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

A Bench headed by Justice L. Nageswara Rao recorded Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta’s submission that the directions issued by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights for general restoration of children had been set aside by the Order of the Joint Secretary to the Government of India. In today’s hearing, the SG informed the Court that the Affidavit wherein it was stated that the recommendations of the NCPCR was intended to check the conditions of individual children and that the same was not mandatory. “The children must be produced before the Child Welfare Committee to explore further welfare needs. They will not be sent without assessment. It’s not an en masse repatriation. The earlier stand was that the children could not be permanently housed in the homes”, stated the SG. Justice Rao then noted that the only apprehension the Court had was that there was a general direction pertaining to all children being sent home. “Now that you’ve clarified this issue in clear terms that the Commission will follow Section 40(3) scrupulously, then we can close this issue”, said Justice Rao. Accordingly, the Bench passed an Order that in view of the submissions made by the Solicitor-General, the repatriation of children shall be made after following the provisions of the JJ Act. In the previous hearing, Justice Rao had observed that a general direction could not be given as there were multiple aspects which had to be addressed, for instance, seeking permission of the parents, checking on education, health etc. The NCPCR on September 24 issued letters to the district authorities in eight states, setting off a process to restore children lodged in Children Care Institutions back to their families after a review by the Child Welfare Committees. Many civil society organisations had called for the withdrawal of the letter and had stated that it was against the purpose, principles and spirit of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015. On April 2, a Division Bench comprising of Justices L. Nageswara Rao and Deepak Gupta had taken suo moto cognizance of conditions of children protection homes across the country in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Directions had been issued to State Governments and various other authorities to protect them. The Court had also issued detailed directions to Child Welfare Committees, Juvenile Justice Boards and Children Courts, CCIs and the State Governments to prevent the spread of the virus amongst children.Click here to read/download the orderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

When You Move is competing with several similar services including Sohail Rashid’s View My Chain and MyHomeMove’s eWay digital case management service.But because the market is so huge – a million property sales every year – new entrants into this emerging digital sector were inevitable.During an interview with The Negotiator at launch, founder Simon Bath (pictured) said his main aim was to improve the current panel process estate agents use to source conveyancers for customers by improving the way agents, solicitors, buyers, sellers and mortgage firms talk to each other.Since then When You Move has revamped it website and added a star rating system for home movers to rate conveyancers.Following the new funding, Bath said: “We’re primed to enable conveyancing firms, mortgage brokers and estate agents to provide information to one another effortlessly and in doing so, free them up to perform the important jobs rather than filing paperwork and chasing other parties.”MyHomeMove property chains Sales progression simon bath sohail rashid conveyancing View My Chain When You Move May 23, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

CHANNEL 44 NEWS: Southwest Indiana Education Officials Unite Against ISTEP OCTOBER 26TH, 2016 BRADEN HARP INDIANA Area educators are calling community members to action.Local school districts have been dealing with the controversial ISTEP test for years now.Officials are asking parents, students, and community members to communicate with members of the Indiana assessment committee about finding a replacement test.“There are huge problems. Not just problems that have been created but problems that have been ongoing now for the past six years that have really created an unstable environment for education in Indiana” Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation Superintendent Dr. David Smith said.A panel was created to find an alternative to ISTEP during the 2016 legislative session. After seven panel meetings Smith says Indiana is no closer to finding a replacement test.“What we are trying to do here today is just to bring a voice to the students, our families, and our teachers who frankly have been left out of this process. Every time standards and assessments change it strips teachers of the necessary resources to do their job” Smith said.Indiana gubernatorial candidate and Lt. Governor Eric Holcomb says delays in ISTEP results are inexcusable.“ISTEP is going by the wayside and it can’t happen soon enough in my mind their needs to be a methodical approach to replacing it but we need a test here in Indiana that would receive results quicker that are fair, accurate, and timely” Holcomb said.Now officials from close to 25 area school districts are calling community members to action.“Indiana professional educators implore students parents and community partners to immediately communicate to the members of the Indiana assessment committee to recommend an assessment system that’s appropriate in use for both student progress tracking and accountability” Dr. Tracy Lorey with Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools said.Officials say they want the committee to take politics and competition out of the process of finding a replacement exam.Lieutenant Governor Holcomb, Auditor Crouch Are Campaigning In EvansvilleOCTOBER 26TH, 2016 BRITNEY TAYLOR EVANSVILLE, INDIANA Lieutenant Governor Eric Holcomb and Auditor Suzanne Crouch are campaigning in Evansville.The Republican candidate for Indiana Governor and his running mate started Wednesday morning at Youth First on Southeast Third Street.

He says, “Not just Evansville, but the southwestern quadrant of the state and I’ve been proud to have been associated with a lot of the reforms that have enable this part of the state to really forge forward and create their own destiny and contribute to the life of our state.”At 1:30 p.m. Holcomb and his running mate will tour the Evansville Medical School and hotel project site with Mayor Lloyd Winnecke.

A campaign to stop UK bread manufacturers using the pesticide glyphosate has been branded ‘misleading’ for targeting bread. The campaign was launched by the Soil Association, after scientists claimed that the widely used weed killer is ‘probably’ carcinogenic.The ‘Not in our bread’ campaign asks the public to sign a petition urging manufacturers to “stop using wheat sprayed with glyphosate in your products”, which will be sent to firms including Hovis, Warburtons, Allied Bakeries and Brace’s and all major supermarkets.It stresses that tests by Defra have found glyphosate in “as much as 30%” of UK bread – but the Federation of Bakers has hit back at this, saying levels are so small they are barely detectable.Gordon Polson, director at the Federation of Bakers (FOB), said: “Where it is found, it is in such small levels it is nearly indetectable. This is constantly monitored by Defra and European safety authorities.“While it may be legitimate to have a debate about glyphosate, it is misleading to highlight bread.”The campaign comes as the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) said that the Glyphosate herbicide, found in the herbicide product Roundup, was ‘probably’ carcinogenic to humans in a recent study.An FOB spokesperson said that this was a claim based on ’limited evidence’. They explained: “The statement that glyphosate is ‘probably carcinogenic’ is based on limited evidence, and the German Risk Assessment Authority (which takes the lead for regulating glyphosate in the EU) has confirmed that there is no significant relationship between exposure to glyphosate and an increased risk of cancer.”The Soil Association has called for an immediate ban on pre-harvest use of glyphosate on crops.A focus on breadWhen asked why the campaign targeted bread specifically, and not all wheat containing food, Peter Melchett, policy director at the Soil Association said: “The UK Government’s quarterly testing for pesticides in food has focused on bread for some years now, because of all the foods they test, pesticides have been found most frequently in bread.“In our press release and campaign materials we also mention flour, biscuits and other wheat based products. But bread is a staple and if Glyphosate ends up in bread it’s impossible for people to avoid it, unless they are eating organic. On the other hand, farmers could easily choose not to use Glyphosate as a pre-harvest spray on wheat crops – just before they are harvested. This is why the Soil Association is calling for the immediate ending of the use of pre-harvest Glyphosate sprays on wheat destined for use in bread.”
