The usual process for consenting to bishop elections is by votes of diocesan bishops and standing committees.Because the amendment was passed by both houses of General Convention in 2009 and already received approval by the House of Bishops at this convention, approval by the deputies in the required vote by orders makes the action final.The deputies began their session with a tribute to Pamela Chinnis, president of the House of Deputies for the conventions of 1994, 1997 and 2000, who died last fall, given by the Very Rev. Frank Wade, interim dean of Washington National Cathedral; and they later heard a report on the work of Episcopal Relief and Development by its president, Robert Radke.Deputies also elected four people to the Disciplinary Board for Bishops: the Rev. Angela Shepherd, the Rev. Peggy Tuttle, A. Joseph Alarid and William J. Fleener, Jr.In other action, deputies adopted the following resolutions:• C069, which calls for additional ministry on the campuses of community colleges, with a request of $760,000 over the next three years;• A133, providing financial support of $426,000 over the next three years for theological education for native leaders in the Episcopal Church;• A147, continuing the work of Forward Movement;• A160, supporting the Diocese of Haiti and commending the work of “Rebuild our Church in Haiti” by Episcopal Relief and Development;• A088, expressing expectations for leaders in stewardship in the church; and• A096, calling for reducing barriers, such as time away from home or jobs, for those participating in church leadership.— Melodie Woerman is a member of the Episcopal News Service team at General Convention.

first_imgPhiladelphiaAs soon as the news broke late on the morning of Nov. 7 that the 2020 U.S. presidential election was over, workers here could be heard cheering the humiliating defeat of Donald Trump. Soon after, they were in the streets — dancing and banging pots and pans. Strangers greeted each other warmly on corners and waved to each other from their cars. Philly United Front leads demonstration around City Hall, Nov. 7. WW Photo: Joe PietteThousands began to assemble at City Hall, Independence Mall, West Philadelphia’s Clark Park and elsewhere in this city, which is credited with pushing the vote for former Vice President Biden over the top. The spontaneous jubilation sparked by news of Trump’s ouster should not be underestimated!Yet at the same time these celebrations began, a very different event was underway across town — the funeral of Walter Wallace Jr., a 27-year-old Black man gunned down Oct. 26 by two white Philadelphia cops, Sean Matarazzo and Thomas Munz. Classmates of Matarazzo claim that he is a longtime white supremacist. Protests erupted immediately after Wallace’s killing, as communities across the city condemned the cops for responding with deadly force to a Black man who was experiencing a mental health crisis. Police body camera footage released the day after the election reveals the cops saying “Shoot him” to each other as bystanders — including Wallace’s mother — beg the cops not to shoot.On Nov. 7, one part of the city wept as the other danced. The distance between these two realities is only widened by the election of Biden, who, when asked prior to Election Day if he had any response to the murder of Wallace, responded by condemning the people protesting police violence.Philly United Front: ‘Keep the struggle in the streets!’Kempis Ghani Songster of the Amistad Law Project addresses Philadelphia rally, Nov. 7. WW Photo: Joe PietteNov. 7 was also the day chosen by the Philadelphia United Front to stage their first public demonstration in the city. The United Front, initiated by Workers World Party’s Philadelphia branch, is a broad assembly of progressive and radical organizations, including Philly Boricuas, the Philly Black Radical Collective, Black Alliance for Peace, Black Lives Matter Philly, Mobilization For Mumia, the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the MOVE Organization, Anakbayan Philly, Socialist Alternative, the Black and Brown Coalition, the Black Trans Assembly for Abolition, Amistad Law Project, Food Not Bombs Solidarity, the Party for Socialism and Liberation and the Democratic Socialists of America. It also includes rank-and-file members of the Temple Association of University Professionals, Philadelphia Joint Board Workers, the International Electrical Workers (IBEW), the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, and retired postal workers.Organizers from this impressive alliance gathered for a rally at City Hall, where hundreds joined in to voice their commitment to the principles that unite them: opposition to white supremacy; abolishing police and carceral violence; and defending workers rights. “We’re gonna keep our feet on the gas,” said Kempis Ghani Songster of the Amistad Law Project, who opened the rally. “We don’t care about your mandate,” Songster said, referring to the recent electoral victory of the Democrats, “Our movement has a mandate!“For the first time ever, we have a woman in the White House. Make no mistake, women of color showed up strong. So let’s salute our sisters; let’s salute all women, but especially those who are always forgotten. They got Trump out of there. Now we have a woman of color in the White House, which is poetic, considering that Trump started his political career on birtherism, which is essentially delegitimizing nonwhite people in positions of power.“But let’s be clear. Women in seats of power don’t necessarily translate into power for women, if those women are upholding patriarchy and white male domination. Just as Black people in seats of power don’t translate into the empowerment of Black communities. We know [Kamala Harris’] history — we know her history, especially as it relates to the Black community. And we know Biden’s history.”‘Fighting injustice is a lifelong struggle’Vanessa Maria of Philly Boricuas told the growing crowd, “Fighting against injustice is a lifelong struggle. We have to be committed to organizing beyond this election and to fighting for the rest of our lives, not just to make sure that we’re free, but that everybody is free. We have millions of comrades who are behind bars right now, who don’t have a say in what’s happening in these elections. We have to continue to fight for them and to free them all.”Tamara Anderson from the Racial Justice Organizing Committee explained the history of Philadelphia arch-racist mayor and police commissioner Frank Rizzo and gave an emotional appeal. “Just like how America has never achieved the promise of democracy for all its citizens, American public schools have not achieved equity, democracy, and liberation for all of her students. If this Philadelphia is where the history of America began, then we should be the leader in showing everyone else what it should be.”Gabe Bryant from the Black Philly Radical Collective came to the rally straight from the funeral of Walter Wallace, Jr., saying: “Although we may have slayed the dragon today, we have several more dragons out there to fight.”“If you been fighting, if you been campaigning, if you been hitting the streets, if you been dismantling, if you been destroying, you know it in your heart that today feels a little bit still like yesterday,” Bryant said. “Because you’re gonna keep fighting; you’re gonna keep building; you’re gonna keep collaborating; you’re gonna keep coming together; you’re gonna keep unifying. You’re gonna destroy the systems that are not in our interest, and, more importantly, build the world that we all want to see.”‘Justice for Walter Wallace! Free Ant!’Hundreds of workers marched behind the United Front’s banners from City Hall to Rittenhouse Square, one of the city’s wealthiest neighborhoods, demanding justice for Walter Wallace Jr. and calling for the release of Anthony Smith, a local organizer who was arrested on false charges by federal forces. Several people in outdoor restaurant seating stood and applauded the march and joined in with “Justice for Walter Wallace” chants.  Fermin Morales, a union worker and member of Philly Boricuas, took to the mic after the march wound its way around Center City, where it picked up hundreds more protesters to swell the ranks of the United Front. He proudly and uncompromisingly declared that he was a socialist and that no one should be ashamed to say it: “When you become a socialist, you stop being a racist. Socialism is the way we will end racism and imperialism. Don’t learn about socialism from a capitalist! Learn what socialism really is!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img to go further November 14, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities continue to criminalize opposition press, arresting newspaper editor on hooliganism charge News Receive email alerts News Reporters Without Borders condemns a Baku court’s decision on 11 November to detain Ganimat Zahidov, the editor of the opposition daily Azadlig, for two months pending trial on charges of “aggravated hooliganism” in connection with an apparently orchestrated incident six days ago. He faces up to five years in prison if convicted.“We are appalled by this decision, which confirms that the Azerbaijani authorities see the opposition press as a criminal enterprise,” the press freedom organisation said. “Any method, even the most outrageous ones, are used to punish journalists who dare to criticise the president and those close to him.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge the judicial authorities to carefully examine what happened on 7 November and, in particular, we would like all the eye-witnesses to be allowed to testify, because there are two contradictory versions of the incident. The conviction of Zahidov’s younger brother and fellow journalist a year ago on a trumped-up drug charge reinforces our suspicion that this has been deliberately orchestrated.”Zahidov was summoned to the Yasamal district police station in Baku on 10 November in connection with a complaint by a certain Vusal Hasanov claiming that Zahidov had assaulted him three days before. After being taken into police custody, he was brought the next day before a Yasamal judge, Tahir Ismailov, who ordered him placed in pre-trial detention. His trial is due to take place in two months.According to Zahidov’s account of the 7 November incident, he was entering the building where the “Azerbaijan” publishing house is located at around 3:30 p.m. when a young woman (subsequently identified as Sevgilade Guliyeva Azim Gizi) who was on the steps leading into the building began to shout and accuse him of insulting her. Hasanov then grabbed Zahidov by the jacket and shouted: “Who are you to bother his girl?” Zahidov tried to push him away and the two men began to fight. After people who had seen what happened took Zahidov’s side, Hasanov and the young woman extricated themselves and left in a taxi together. As Hasanov was getting into the taxi, he shouted at Zahidov: “You will see!”Zahidov told Reporters Without Borders about the incident on the day it happened. He said he regarded it as deliberate provocation in retaliation for articles accusing President Ilham Aliev’s wife of corruption or for articles, the latest of which had appeared that day, about highway code violations by the president’s relatives.In a press release yesterday, the Institute for Reporters Freedom and Safety referred to so far unconfirmed press reports that Hasanov and the young woman had met prior to 7 November in order to plan the incident.Zahidov’s younger brother, Sakit Zahidov, a poet and Azadlig reporter, received a three-year jail sentence in October 2006 on a trumped-up charge of possession of heroin.Eight journalists are currently detained in Azerbaijan, which was ranked 139th out of 169 countries in this year’s Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index.

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Last year turned out to be a good year for U.S. homeowners with mortgages. A new study by CoreLogic found that roughly 63 percent of all homeowners saw their equity increase by a total of $783 billion in 2016. That’s an increase of almost 12 percent. Average home equity rose by $13,700.Moreover, more than 1 million borrowers moved out of negative equity during 2016, CoreLogic reported. That brings the percentage of mortgaged homeowners with positive equity to 94 percent, or approximately 48 million homes.The national aggregate value of negative equity was approximately $283 billion at the end of Q4, down by approximately $700 million, or 0.3 percent, from Q3; and down about $26 billion, or 8.4 percent, from $308.9 billion in Q4 2015.There were 3.17 million of mortgaged residential properties with negative equity in Q4, about 6 percent of all homes with a mortgage. This, according to CoreLogic, is a decrease from 3.23 million homes in Q3. It’s also a 25 percent drop from a year earlier, when there were 4.23 million homes in negative equity.“About one-fourth of all outstanding mortgages have a term of 20 years or less, which amortize more quickly than 30-year loans and contribute to faster equity accumulation,” said Frank Nothaft, chief economist at CoreLogic.Texas and Hawaii had the highest percentages of homes with positive equity, both over 98 percent. Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Utah, and Washington all had equity rates at 98 percent. Washington had an average equity increase of $31,000; Delaware experienced a small decline.Citywise, the San Francisco area had the highest percentage of mortgaged properties in a positive equity position at 99.4 percent. Houston and Denver tied for second place, each with 98.5 percent of homes in positive equity. Los Angeles had 97 percent and Boston 95.3 percent of homes in the black.Nevada had the highest percentage of homes with negative equity at 13.6 percent, followed by Florida and Illinois, which each had rates over 11 percent. Rhode Island and Arizona followed closely, with about 10 percent of homes in the red. These top five states, CoreLogic reported, account for 30 percent of negative equity in the U.S., but only 16.3 percent of outstanding mortgages.Miami, at 16 percent negative equity, had the highest percentage of underwater mortgaged properties last year. Las Vegas followed with 15.5 percent, and Chicago was the only other city with double-digit negative equity, 12.6 percent. Washington, D.C., with 8.4 percent, and New York, with 5 percent, rounded out the top five negative-equity metros.“Home equity gains were strongest in faster-appreciating and higher-priced home markets,” said Frank Martell, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “The states with the largest home-price appreciation last year were Washington and Oregon, at 10.2 percent and 10.3 percent, respectively, with average homeowner equity gains of $31,000 and $27,000, respectively. This is double the pace for the U.S. as a whole.”And while statewide home-price appreciation was slower in California at 5.8 percent, Martell said, the high price of housing there led to California homeowners gaining an average of $26,000 in home equity wealth last year.

In a surprise move Sinn Fein, Fianna Fail and Independents opted not to – notably including independent Councillor John Campbell, who is a leading campaigner with the Can’t Pay Won’t Pay Group. 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Google+ Pinterest Twitter 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic Twitter Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Facebooklast_img read more
