Over 100 U.S. cities: ‘We are all Trayvon’

first_imgAnaheim, Calif., July 21.Photo: Boa-hanh TranJuly 22 — Rallies, vigils, sit-ins and marches have continued across the United States in response to the July 13 jury verdict acquitting racist vigilante George Zimmerman in the 2012 slaying of Black youth Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla.These actions erupted spontaneously on July 14 and 15 and have kept up since then all over the country. The African-American community, joined in solidarity by people of many nationalities, demands justice for Trayvon Martin and an end to murderous racism and national oppression.The hundreds of protests forced President Barack Obama to speak out about Martin for the first time since the verdict on July 19. He said, “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” and “the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.” (whitehouse.gov, July 19)Obama stated that successive generations seem to be “making progress in changing attitudes when it comes to race.” But, he acknowledged, “It doesn’t mean we’re in a post-racial society. It doesn’t mean that racism is eliminated.” Yet, Obama also said he would not institute “some grand, new federal program” to help ease conditions for oppressed youth.Philadelphia, July 20.WW photo: Joseph PietteWhile local demonstrations continue to oppose the verdict, the National Action Network (NAN), led nationally by the Rev. Al Sharpton, along with thousands of supporters and other groups, organized protests at federal buildings and courthouses in more than 100 cities on July 20. Tens of thousands joined in these “Justice for Trayvon” rallies to press the Department of Justice to investigate Zimmerman’s case in order to bring charges against him for violating Martin’s Civil Rights.Importantly, Trayvon Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, addressed rallies in New York City and Miami, respectively.Below are reports primarily from Workers World correspondents around the U.S.East Coast rallies call for justiceMilwaukee, July 20.Sharpton stressed to the New York City rally’s 3,000 participants that the Aug. 24 national march in Washington, marking the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March for Jobs and Freedom, will demand “Justice for Trayvon Martin.” It is expected to draw tens of thousands from around the country who are outraged at the racist verdict a half century after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.After the rally at One Police Plaza, the crowd marched over the Brooklyn Bridge, with some protesters continuing on Flatbush Avenue. A main chant was “Trayvon didn’t have to die, we all know the reason why, the system is guilty!” Drivers honked their horns and raised their fists in support.Nearly 100 people demanded “Justice for Trayvon Martin” in Malcolm X Park July 20 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and marched to the Dutchess County Court, stopping traffic as they went through town. Civil Rights veterans, politicians, clergy and others emphasized the need to defend Black youth in light of the racist decision to free Martin’s killer.Three days earlier, 80 people gathered at the Ulster County Courthouse in Kingston, N.Y. On the front of the building is a plaque honoring 19th-century Abolitionist leader Sojourner Truth. Among the speakers was WW contributing editor Fred Goldstein, who raised NYC police killings of Sean Bell and Amadou Diallo and the need to make a national effort to sentence Zimmerman for his crime.In Boston on July 20, a multinational crowd chanted and held “Justice for Trayvon” signs and others calling for overturning “Stand Your Ground” laws. In a speak-out, grandmothers and others voiced their fears, “What if [Trayvon] had been my grandson?” Many told of historic fightbacks again racism.On July 14 also in Boston, more than 1,000 African-Americans, Latinos/as, Asians and white protesters rallied outside a police station in Dudley Square’s Black community of Roxbury. Young demonstrators were joined by community leaders and Civil Rights movement veterans who spoke. Marchers then took the streets, going up Malcolm X Boulevard to the Ruggles T station near another police station and then back.In Philadelphia, 1,500 people rallied and marched around the Federal Building July 20. The young, multinational group supported the call for a Florida boycott and the campaign to reverse “Stand Your Ground” laws. The consensus was that gaining justice for Trayvon Martin means taking on the many struggles where racism rears its ugly head — from police brutality to the school-to-prison pipeline. Speakers included Pam Africa, a leader of International Concerned Friends and Family of Mumia Abu-Jamal; attorney Michael Coard; and Paula Peoples of NAN.In Baltimore, hundreds rallied at the downtown Federal Building July 20.  Pastor Jamal Bryant of the Empowerment Temple chaired the rally. The Baltimore People’s Power Assembly attended and distributed a local petition that calls on the Justice Department to indict Zimmerman and attacks the war on Black, Latino/a, Indigenous and poor youth.In the southeast city of Atlanta, thousands converged, despite rain, on July 20 on the downtown street fronting the Richard Russell Federal Building. Parents brought their children to the noon rally. Youth and older workers chanted “No justice, no peace!” There was strong support for mobilizations against racial profiling and mass incarceration. A WWP banner read, “Stop the war on Black youth! No racism, police brutality and racial profiling.”Midwesterners decry racist verdictHundreds rallied in downtown Buffalo, N.Y., on July 20 in coordination with national actions; the next evening hundreds again protested. Dozens of community group representatives decried racism and racist profiling, the “injustice” system, the school-to-prison pipeline, and the war on Black and Brown youth, immigrants, women and lesbian-gay-bi-trans-queer people. They called for organizing varied actions together.In Pittsburgh, a diverse group of 200 people gathered at the Hill District’s Freedom Corner on July 14, angry and grief-stricken. Many wore hoodies in 90-degree heat. Byra Adams, a young African-American woman, said, “I want to feel like this is my country too. It’s not. The system was never built for us. We matter.” Later, a group sat down and blocked traffic on Centre Avenue. Police warned the crowd to disperse or face arrest. But protesters held out and stayed through the night.Then on July 20, about 400 Pittsburghers met at the Federal Building. Speakers, rap artists and poets strengthened the crowd’s resolve to take on the challenges of racial profiling, the new Jim Crow, Pennsylvania’s Castle Doctrine, the state’s similar “Stand Your Ground” law.In downtown Cleveland, a July 20 rally drew hundreds. Schoolchildren carried homemade signs. “Brother Stevie had it right,” said Brother Abdul Qahhar at the rally in support of singer Stevie Wonder’s pledge to boycott Florida.On July 15 in Green Bay, Wis., a multinational group protested at the County Courthouse, demanding justice for Trayvon Martin. They marched around downtown, chanting “No justice, no peace!” and rallied at the courthouse again.In Milwaukee, 1,000 protesters of many nationalities converged July 20 to insist on justice for Trayvon Martin. The crowd covered the entire block in front of the Federal Courthouse. A delegation from the Latino/a youth organization, Youth Empowered in the Struggle (YES), marched from Red Arrow Park to the courthouse in a show of Black and Brown unity.Some 1,400 miles west, 200 activists and community members rallied on July 15 at the Salt Lake City Matheson Court House to assail the verdict and express anger at the U.S. “injustice” system. They demanded, “No to racism, police brutality and racial profiling!” “Jobs and schools, not jails!” “End mass incarceration and deportations!” and “End the war on youth!”  Community activists and others who had experienced racism and racial profiling spoke. Protesters marched around the city, finishing with a vigil at a government building downtown.On the streets on the West CoastOn July 17 in Beverly Hills, Calif., the wealthiest area of Los Angeles, hundreds of protesters marched on busy Wilshire Boulevard. The Justice for Trayvon Martin Los Angeles grouping of youth and students, mostly people of color, led the protest and pledged to keep the struggle alive until justice is won.That night, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck declared that due to “vandalism,” including a raid on Walmart’s, free speech and free assembly rights would be curtailed in South Central LA. Beck told parents to “Tell your children not to go out to Crenshaw [Boulevard] tomorrow.”On July 18, as ordered by Garcetti and Beck — even though thousands had protested for five days without “incident” — truckloads of cops wielding assault rifles rode up and down Crenshaw, where most LA protests have occurred. Police cruisers and helicopters flooded the adjoining communities to intimidate residents.On July 20, 300 people joined the NAN rally at the LA Federal Courthouse and then marched downtown, with many joining them.  Speakers included community leaders and clergy. John Parker, West Coast International Action Center coordinator, announced a People’s Power Assembly Speakout and Strategy Session in LA on Sat., July 27, to build a united struggle to stop business as usual until justice is won. It’s at Kaos Network near Leimert Park; for more information, call 323-306-6240.A July 21 anti-police brutality rally was held in Anaheim, Calif., by the Answer Coalition and relatives of victims of police killings, including the Alan Blueford and Oscar Grant families. Hundreds marched to the Anaheim Police Station, where speakers blasted the increase in racist lynchings by police of Black and Brown youth. The IAC and Workers World Party marched with the San Diego Committee against Police Abuse. Their signs linked the struggles against police brutality with the demand for justice for Trayvon.Other demonstrations on July 20 took place in San Francisco, Detroit, and Jersey City and Newark, N.J.The struggle continues for justice for Trayvon Martin.Article contributors are Sharon Black, Dorothy Brown, John Catalinotto, Ellie Dorritie, Martha Grevatt, Audrey Hoak, Dianne Mathiowetz, Tony Murphy, Frank Neisser, John Parker, Betsey Piette, Joe Piette, Kelly Valdez and Wilden Wulle.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Saberi has herself been on hunger strike since 21 April.“Roxana has been considerably weakened by her hunger strike and, like her family, we are very concerned for her health,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are therefore symbolically taking over her hunger strike in a gesture of solidarity, so that she does not have to continue it herself.”The members of Reporters Without Borders have been stationed outside the Iran Air office in Paris, located at 63 Avenue des Champs-Elysées, since 11 a.m. yesterday.“We appeal to all those who care about the defence of human rights and freedom in Iran to join us, and to sign the petition and the book for messages of support for Roxana,” Reporters Without Borders added. “Roxana Saberi needs to know she is not alone, and that she can now take a rest. We will not abandon her.”The hunger strike by Reporters Without Borders in France is spreading to other countries. Reporters Without Borders sections in Belgium, Canada, the United States and Spain have begun to take up the protest. Saberi’s father, Reza Saberi, confirmed on 26 April that she was on hunger strike. After visiting her in Tehran’s Evin prison, he said she appeared “much weaker” but was “determined and ready to go all the way.”What he said contradicted comments by Iranian judiciary spokesman Ali Reza Jamshidi denying that Saberi was refusing to take food. “She is in good physical condition and she is not on hunger strike,” the official news agency IRNA quoted him as saying.Saberi’s lawyer, Shirin Ebadi, has deplored the fact that she has not yet been allowed to visit her in Evin prison.Seven journalists and two bloggers are currently imprisoned in Iran, which was ranked 166th out of 173 countries in the 2008 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Timeline of Saberi case- 31 January: Roxana Saberi is arrested.- 1 March: The US public radio network NPR breaks the news of her arrest (after being alerted by her father on 10 February).- 2 March: Foreign ministry spokesman Hassan Ghashghavi says Saberi was working “illegally” in Iran.- 3 March: Judiciary spokesman Alireza Jamshidi says she has been “arrested on the order of the Tehran revolutionary court and is being held in Evin prison.”- 9 April: Saberi is charged with spying by deputy prosecutor Hassan Zare Dehnavi. This charge is often used by the Iranian authorities to arrest journalists and tighten the muzzle on freedom of expression.- 13 April: Saberi is tried in a closed-door hearing on a charge of spying for the United States.- 18 April: Saberi is sentenced to eight years in prison.- 20 April: Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi announces that she will join the Saberi defence team.- 21 April: Saberi begins her hunger strike.- 25 April: Her lawyer files an appeal against her conviction.

Iranian journalist Jila Bani Yaghoob wins “Freedom of expression” award sponsored by Reporters without borders

first_imgNews IranMiddle East – North Africa News News RSF_en February 25, 2021 Find out more Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Iranian blogger, journalist and women’s rights activist Jila Bani Yaghoob was awarded the “Reporters Without Borders, Freedom of expression” prize for her blog “We are journalists” (http://www.zhila.org/spip.php?article217) at the sixth international “Best of the Blogs” event held in Berlin by German radio Deutsche Welle from 13 to 15 April.“Her Persian-language blog deals with the news in Iran, social issues and the subject of women. Jila is in the forefront of the struggle for freedom of expression in her country. She and her family have already paid a high price for her commitment. Reporters Without Borders is proud to award her this prize and through her pay tribute to all Iranian bloggers and journalists who have been arrested, imprisoned for driven into exile these past months”, the organisation said.Jila Bani Yaghoob and her husband Bahaman Ahamadi Amoee were arrested on 20 June 2009 with around 20 other journalists during demonstrations that followed the contested re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as Iranian president. She was freed on 24 August but her husband was sentenced to five years in prison. In an open letter posted on Reporters Without Borders website, Jila promises her husband to “turn sorrow into power” (http://fr.rsf.org/letter-to-my-imprisoned-spouse-11-09-2009,34443?var_mode=calcul). He is currently out of prison on licence for a few days. Bani Yaghoub was one of the first freelance women reporters in Iran. Her career has been marked by intimidation and abusive arrests intended to silence her. But she has never bowed to the constant pressure from the Iranian authorities. She has produced more than 4,000 reports on sensitive issues, such as schooling of women, prostitution, Aids-sufferers, suicide among young people, but also the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Lebanon. The reformist newspapers for which she worked have mostly been banned. For fear of getting into trouble in their turn, Iranian media refuse to publish her articles. So she works online to cover subjects she cares about and continues to provide news of her country for Iranians and the rest of the world. On her blog, which has grown in influence in recent months, she has spoken out against the prison conditions of her jailed colleagues. Access to her blog is blocked in Iran but it can be accessed through proxies. Iran was again this year named by Reporters Without Borders as an “Internet enemy” (http://en.rsf.org/internet-enemie-iran,36684.html) A champion of cyber-censorship, the Iranian regime has stepped up online repression and surveillance since 12 June 2009. The regime demonises new media, accusing them of serving foreign interests. Forty journalists, bloggers and netizens are currently behind bars. . The online people’s choice vote for the category “Reporters Without Borders, freedom of expression”, went to Green Dream (http://alasmari.wordpress.com), the blog of Saudi journalist and human rights activist Trad al-Asmari, who describes it as a “free blog to discuss the problems of poverty, unemployment and social justice in Saudi Arabia from the point of view of the people affected by these problems”. (http://alasmari.wordpress.com/2010/03/30/green-dream/). All of these are issues that are not covered by his country’s mainstream media. Saudi Arabia also features on Reporters Without Borders list of “Internet enemies (http://en.rsf.org/internet-enemie-saudi-arabia,36681.html).The competition includes the following categories: “Best blog”, “Best videoblog”, “Best podcast” and “Freedom of expression” and awards prizes to blogs in each one of the competition’s languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, Farsi, French, German, Indonesian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. In this sixth BOBs event, a special prize was awarded to a blog devoted to the theme of climate change. And for the first time there was a prize for “Best blog in Bengali”. To see the full results go to: www.thebobs.com.Last year the “freedom of expression” award went to:- The blog of Zeng Jinyan, wife of human rights activist Hu Jia, who has been in prison in China for nearly two years (http://zengjinyan.spaces.live.com/).- “4equality“, the campaign to collect on million signatures on a petition in support of women’s rights in Iran (http://4equality.info).The international jury is made of journalists, blog specialists and a representative of Reporters Without Borders.

Declining Delinquency Rate Points to ‘Increasing Stabilization’

first_img 2021-02-09 Christina Hughes Babb Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Declining Delinquency Rate Points to ‘Increasing Stabilization’ Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Declining Delinquency Rate Points to ‘Increasing Stabilization’ CoreLogic releases monthly reports on delinquencies and loan performance for U.S. mortgages. The company on Tuesday published data covering November 2020, which show that, nationwide, 5.9% of mortgages are 30-plus days past due.Numbers reported in CoreLogic’s Loan Performance Insights, which include mortgages in foreclosure, represent a 2 percentage point increase in the overall delinquency rate compared to November in 2019.The unemployment rate has a major impact on loan performance, the monthly studies have shown.The unemployment rate fell from 14.8% in April to 6.7% by the end of 2020, CoreLogic reported, adding that the recent rebound in employment has helped some struggling homeowners begin to make payments again.“Urban areas hit hard by the pandemic recession or by a natural disaster experienced the largest spike in delinquency over the last year,” Frank Nothaft Chief Economist for CoreLogic said. “Forbearance and loan modification helped struggling families rebuild their financial house in hard-hit places. While vaccination will mitigate the pandemic, the best cure for delinquency is income restoration through job creation.”Broken down by stages, early (30-59 days) delinquencies sat at 1.4% down from 2% in November 2019. Mortgages 60 to 89 days past due amounted to .6%, which is unchanged from November 2019.The serious delinquency rate (90+ days late including loans in foreclosure) hit 3.9%, up from 1.3% in November 2019.The good news is that this is the lowest serious delinquency rate since June 2020, the researchers say, “pointing to signs of increasing stabilization.”“The consistent decline in serious delinquency since August is a sign of growing financial stability for families,” said  Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic. “In addition to ensuring that homeowners stay in their homes, the decline in delinquency means fewer distressed sales, which is both a positive for individual households and the overall housing market.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: ‘Historic Declines’ in Housing Costs Steer Consumer Spending Next: The Evolution of the Single-Family Rental Market Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago February 9, 2021 12,889 Views Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
