Palestinian Liberation Movement marks global day of action

first_imgThe Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network called for global Days of Resistance from Aug. 7 through 9 to protest the ongoing conquest of Palestinian land by Israeli occupation forces. In a statement announcing the action, the organization said, “Today, the program of Israeli annexation continues to threaten Palestinians in the West Bank, including the most fertile agricultural land of the Jordan Valley, which is still slated for Israel’s latest land grab. Of course, this is simply the continuation of over 72 years of land theft, dispossession, apartheid and genocide — but it requires continued mobilization and action to confront, alongside the siege on Gaza, the mass imprisonment of Palestinians, the demolition of homes, the denial of Palestinian refugees’ right to return and further war crimes and crimes against humanity.Cleveland, August 9.“Annexation is a continuing threat — especially if the Israeli state thinks that it can pass unnoticed without continued resistance. The struggle is not over; in many ways, it has just begun.”Over 130 other organizations around the world took part in actions to demand an end to the imperialist project to erase the nation of Palestine, its culture and its people. There were actions in dozens of cities in the U.S. and around the world.Workers World Party is proud to have endorsed these Days of Resistance and unwaveringly supports the struggle for national liberation and self-determination.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Biblically there seems to be plenty of evidence to support this case with verses like Jeremiah 1:5 which states, “before I formed you in the womb I knew you.” However, the Conservative right seem to misunderstand the fact that religious morals do not necessarily translate to societal morals.center_img Linkedin Daniel Salazarhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/daniel-salazar/ printWelcome to The (new and improved) 109.Today, we’re launching a new version of our website, the109.org.

While granting bail, the Single Bench of Justice Vibhu Bakhru further observed that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the accused might be acquitted of offences that he’s charged with. In the present matter, a bail application was moved by the accused person who was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau for allegedly smuggling and dealing with the commercial quantity of charas. To argue against the bail application, the NCB heavily relied upon the ‘voluntary statements’ of the accused recorded under section 67 of the NDPS Act. The agency also cited various recoveries which were made in pursuance of the section 67 statement of the accused. The court, however, took note of the fact that the issue of whether statements made under section 67 of the NDPS Act are admissible evidence has been referred to a larger bench of the Supreme Court in Tofan Singh v. State of Tamil Nadu. The court further observed that even if such self-incriminating statements made under section 67 are accepted as admissible, they are a weak form of evidence and can be used only to corroborate other evidence. The court also took cognisance of the fact that the disclosure statement of one of the accused doesn’t correspond with the recovery made from him. After perusing these submissions, the court observed that: ‘Considering the above, this Court is of the view that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the petitioner may be acquitted. Admittedly, the petitioner is not involved in any other criminal case and there is no reason to believe that he would commit a similar offence, if released. It appears to be the prosecution’s case that the petitioner had begun dealing in drugs to feed his addiction. But, as noticed earlier, there is nothing on record to establish that the petitioner is a drug addict.’ The court also clarified that observations made in this order are only prima facie and solely for the purposes of examining whether the petitioner ought to be released on bail. The Petitioner in the present case was represented by Mr Akshay Bhandari and Mr Digvijay Singh.Click here to download the JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

Personnel Today presses for change

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Personnel Today presses for changeOn 18 Dec 2001 in Personnel Today Pushing for progress in HR, Personnel Today has taken a stand on issues thatwill make a difference to business and lobbied MPs for government actionTribunals Ground-breaking research by Personnel Today showed that human resourcesdepartments are increasingly under pressure because of a surge in employmentdisputes. Nearly half of respondents said they are more likely to settle out of courtsince the compensation limit was raised from £12,000 to £50,000 in 1999. The sum spent by the 137 companies surveyed on defending cases in tribunalswas at least £1.8m. Firms taking part in the research also paid out anestimated £700,000 on settling cases before they reached employment tribunals. In November, the Government set out new measures to try and reduce theburden on the tribunal system. The new Employment Bill – due to become law nextyear – includes the requirement for employers and staff to use internalgrievance procedures before going to tribunal. The Government also introduced afixed period of consultation and tough penalties for either party if they don’ttry conciliation first. Equal pay Personnel Today strongly supported the Equal Pay Task Force’s recommendationthat employers perform mandatory pay audits. We called for senior staff, linemanagers and employees to embrace the case for fair pay. The Government outlined proposals to streamline the tribunal system forequal pay claims, but claimed it wanted to adopt a voluntary approach tofurther measures to tackle the divide. It appointed the CompetitionCommission’s Denise Kingsmill to undertake a review of employers’ attitudes, toreport in December. This month the Government unveiled new proposals to cut the pay gapfollowing the review. They included the right for women to know what malecolleagues of the same level were earning and called for the publication of paydiversity in annual reports. More radical proposals were ignored, however, such as the overhaul of theInvestors in People kitemark to include sex inequality, a research centre forwomen in employment and public sector board pay being linked to diversitytargets. The CIPD warned that if employers don’t adopt a transparent approachvoluntarily then legislation could follow. Consultation The internal communication of heavy job losses at steel giant Corus and carmanufacturer Vauxhall earlier in the year received widespread criticism for anunsympathetic approach. Former Trade and Industry Secretary Stephen Byers announced a review ofemployers’ obligations to inform and consult staff over business restructuringin the UK. Personnel Today sent an open letter to the DTI to ensure that the views ofHR professionals would be included in the review. The profession was concernedthat the Government wanted a political quick-fix after bad publicity DTI minister Alan Johnson responded and promised a “thorough andwide-ranging review”. But the review was overtaken by events in Europe. In June, the UK Government was left isolated in its resistance to Brussels’Information and Consultation directive and it was eventually agreed that itwould become law. It will ensure that employers with more than 50 staff consult theirworkforce in detail about redundancies and mergers much earlier than is normalpractice in the UK or face harsh penalties. In October, MEPs pushed to make the directive’s implementation and penaltiesless flexible. It is due to be agreed this week. RefugeesPersonnel Today launched a campaign to help refugees andasylum-seekers into employment. Many organisations still face skills shortagesin key areas, and we felt it was in the interest of employers to be able torecruit staff from the widest possible pool. Despite refugees and many asylum-seekers having permission towork in the UK, they face barriers to finding work. Our campaign is aimed atpersuading the Government to do its part in removing those barriers. We set about finding examples of employers which have eitherfaced difficulties in recruiting refugees or are helping refugees into work.Personnel Today’s exclusive story on Oxford Bus Company’s inability to employtwo asylum-seekers because of DVLA red tape has since become a definitive casestudy.In November, the magazine published joint research with theRefugee Council that shows nine out of 10 employers want to take on refugeesand asylum-seekers to meet skills shortages. But many of the 255 employers areput off by red tape and legal fears. Over 60 per cent of the 153 refugees surveyed by PersonnelToday and the Refugee Council have been unemployed in the UK for more than ayear, despite many being well qualified and having work experience.Personnel Today has addressed leading conferences on itscampaign, and has been invited to make a presentation to the All PartyCommittee on Refugees in the House of Commons. We hope the Government will takeon board the campaign aims over the next year, starting with the White Paper onrefugees and asylum-seekers due to be published in January 2002.  Personnel Today is asking theGovernment to:– Introduce a standard permission-to-work document for refugeesand asylum-seekers– Commit to cutting red tape for employers who want to employrefugees and asylum-seekers– Develop a skills database of immigrants in the UK– Produce concrete plans to co-ordinate the employment ofrefugees and asylum-seekers last_img read more

Case round-up

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article This week’s case roundupCan the same facts give rise to claims for both direct and indirectdiscrimination? Jaffrey v Department of Environment, Transport and Regions, EAT [2002]IRLR 688 Jaffrey was employed by the department as an administrative officer subjectto an annual appraisal which dictated his rate of pay. Following one such appraisal, he commenced a claim of direct discriminationagainst his line manager (who was white) in respect of how the appraisal wasconducted. He also sought, to challenge the department’s appraisal schemeitself as indirectly discriminatory against ethnic minority employees. Thetribunal agreed Jaffrey’s annual appraisal had been conducted in adiscriminatory fashion and had resulted in a loss of performance-related pay.He was accordingly made an award for that loss of pay, for loss of promotionand £7,500 for injury to feelings. His claim that the appraisal process wasindirectly discriminatory failed, as the court held that the poor performancearose from the direct discrimination of the line manager who operated thesystem unfairly, not from the system itself. Jaffrey’s appeal was alsounsuccessful. Determining jurisdiction is not easy Rogers v Markel Corporation, High Court, [2002] EWHC 1138 This month, the High Court was called upon to clarify the UK’s legaljurisdiction in respect of a tricky, but by no means unusual arrangement. Rogers was employed on an American contract by a subsidiary of a US companybased in the UK. He was British and had always worked here. When his employmentcame to an end however, he wanted to claim additional payments he believed weredue to him. Since his contract arose in the US, did he have to get leave of theUS court to issue proceedings in the UK? The Court concluded that any claim could be heard in the UK. Relevantfactors included that UK lawyers had been involved over many months, interimpayments were not available to Rogers in the US and his costs in bringing aclaim in Virginia, US, even were he to win, would be prohibitive.
