Australia to bar return of citizens who fought for IS

first_imgSydney: Australia is poised to bar its citizens who have fought for the Islamic State militant group from returning home for up to two years, under new laws discussed in parliament Tuesday. The controversial legislation would give hardline Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton the ability to invoke “exclusion orders” to prevent suspected terrorists from returning to the country. It is based on similar legislation introduced in the United Kingdom, where a judge is tasked with deciding whether to impose an exclusion order. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USDutton told parliament in early July the bill targets 230 Australians who travelled to Syria and Iraq to fight for Islamic State, 80 of whom he said were still in active conflict zones. Concerns have been raised that the Australian proposal could be unconstitutional and places too much power in the minister’s hands, with the opposition Labor Party calling for it to be referred back to a parliamentary intelligence and security committee for further consideration. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsHowever, shadow home affairs minister Kristina Keneally said in a statement the opposition would support the bill but wanted a scheme that was “constitutional, keeps Australians safe and that withstands High Court challenges”. It is one of several controversial measures being considered by parliament in the first legislative sitting week since Australia’s conservative government was re-elected in May. Other proposals include repealing the so-called “Medevac” law that allows sick asylum seekers and refugees held in Pacific camps to be brought to Australia for medical treatment. The opposition has to date appeared reluctant to back a repeal of the law, with Labor leader Anthony Albanese telling Sky News on Tuesday he did not believe the government had made a case for change.last_img read more

Demand rising for UNs Western Sahara family visits programme

A week after the first round of successful visits, two more groups of Saharans – ranging in age from four to 72 – are being flown today by MINURSO to meet their relatives.This morning 23 people left Laayoune in Western Sahara for Tindouf in southern Algeria, where thousands of Saharans live in five nearby refugee camps. The same plane is scheduled to transport 24 people from Tindouf to Laayoune this afternoon.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which has helped organize the family visits programme, said there has been high demand among Saharans to take part. At least 1,400 have applied.UNHCR spokesman Ron Redmond told reporters at its headquarters in Geneva that the flights to and from Laayoune will continue until the end of the month, when flights will shift to Dakha and eventually Smara and Boujdour.Visits are currently confined to five days, but Mr. Redmond said that UNHCR and MINURSO will eventually “try to accommodate individual family situations and perhaps exceptionally allow the extension of stays for humanitarian reasons.”The programme’s aim is to promote face-to-face contact between people separated since the outbreak of war on Spain’s withdrawal from Western Sahara in the mid-1970s.Since then, Morocco and the Frente POLISARIO (Popular Front for the Liberation of Saguia el-Hamra and Rio de Oro) have been in dispute over Western Sahara’s future permanent status. MINURSO has been in place since April 1991 to try to resolve the issue.Mr. Redmond voiced satisfaction at the way the operation is working, “particularly with the way the Algerian and Moroccan authorities and the POLISARIO movement have cooperated to make this happen.” read more

People from all over the country travel to Dáil Lockout protest

first_imgIn the 80s, I had to travel to the US due one recession and when I returned I was right back into another one. More than 80,000 kids have had to emigrate and it is just low to hear the rhetoric being bandied about that it is an ‘opportunity’ for them. I know all about it – I’ve been there.These kids are struggling over there, struggling to get jobs, living undocumented and depending on a sympathetic network of Americans to help them out. Disability cutsCarol Flanagan from Galway also travelled up to Dublin today to be at the gates at Leinster House this morning.Holding a photo of her deceased daughter, she said she was there to protest against the disability cuts. As a carer for her daughter, she said the cuts that have been done to disability allowances have had a huge effect on people across the country and said people should “take no more”.Another protester, Helen Murray received a round of applause from the group when she crossed the road holding a piece of paper with “one angry mother” written in red pen.Helen Murray outside the Dáil this morning. “I am here today to protest against austerity and the cuts being imposed on us. I would like to see the politicians have to live and support a family on the wage I am on. They are in there laughing at us,” said Murray.TurnoutShe added that she was rather disappointed with the turnout. “I would have liked to see more people here today. I travelled up from Kilkenny on the bus today. I could have spent that €15 on something else, on three meals for my family this week, but I decided to come here. People are whining about the state of the country, but there has to be a point where people say they have had enough and come out on the streets”.Mark Fitzsimmons travelled from Navan to be at the protest today. Fitzsimmon has had both his eyes removed and says he knows all too well about the cuts to disability.Holding his cane in one hand and a speakerphone in the other, Fitzsimmons said there have been “cruel cuts” to everyone, adding that the government had unjustly attacked the elderly and the vulnerable.Martin O’Rourke from Navan said he took the day off to be at the protest today and said he wanted more people to come out on the streets today, in a peaceful manner, he added.“They [the government] know that we are complacent and they are taking advantage of that. Everyone needs to fight the cuts, in some way, we all must find a way to rebel, be it big or small”.Here is Carol Flanagan, Helen Murray, Mark Fitzsimmons and Martin O’Rourke on why they wanted to protest today:You can view a livestream of the protest here.There will be another update on how the protest is going later in the afternoon, so stay tuned… Crowd gathering at ‘Lock the government out of the Dáil’ protest> THIS MORNING ABOUT 150 people gathered outside Leinster House for the Dáil Lockout Protest.The ‘Lock the government out of the Dáil’ protest was organised in response to people’s disillusionment with the government and against austerity.Members of the public gathered at both gates of Leinster House, while gardaí stood guard at the barricades.In the middle of the crowd stood one man with a speakerphone, Dominick Gaughran. One would think he was one of the organisers, but no, he is just a regular worker, he said.Dominick Gaughran speaking at the protest today. Gaughran, a firefighter from Wexford said he travelled to Dublin today to voice his anger at the government. He said he began to take an interest in politics about two years ago, when the economy was doing particularly bad. He joined Sinn Fein briefly, but soon realised they were not the party for him.“I was desperate to make a change, to try and make a difference. My family is a single income family and we are struggling. Everyone, including me, has had to tighten our belts, and thankfully we have gotten on top of things now, but I can’t sit by idly and not do something,” he said.George McAnaspie travelled to Dublin with Dominick today.

President Michael D Higgins and FAI chief executive John Delaney were among those in attendance.Ryan McBride, who grew up just a stone’s throw from the club’s Brandywell stadium, is being laid to rest in Derry’s city cemetery. Since making his debut in 2011, the defender played over 170 games for the club, more than 50 of them as captain.“We think of him as an athlete on his prime, who achieved much and still had great potential, a versatile and accomplished footballer, of the thrilling moments he brought to so many supporters of Derry City, and across Ireland, over the past seven years,” said Father Aidan Mullan.“The club management, the team, the supporters, all have been caught up in his natural footballing ability; in his courageous play. As has been said many times, Ryan would put his head where other players would not put their boot. He was brave and knew no fear.“As captain he was an inspirational leader in the dressing room and on the field of play. In the last several weeks Ryan was pivotal in great performances and contributed greatly to Derry’s perfect start to the season; quick reflexes, heady play and competitive spirit made him a great role model for many young boys and girls as well as City supporters and fans throughout the area.” Source: Presseye/Lorcan Doherty/INPHO Source: Presseye/Lorcan Doherty/INPHO Source: PA Wire/PA Images Source: Presseye/Lorcan Doherty/INPHO Source: Presseye/Lorcan Doherty/INPHO Source: Presseye/Lorcan Doherty/INPHOAt the church service, an emotional Derry City manager Kenny Shiels read a poem in tribute to his inspirational captain:In your absenceOur trojan warriorYou’ve ran your last raceYour passion and energy, you just loved the placeIn your absenceWith love and respectIn your absenceWe will never forgetYou were our captainWithout all the hypeThe one and the onlyOur top CandystripeIn your absenceWe will endeavour to fightIn your absenceWith all of our mightOur Brandywell boyYou wore stripes with great prideIt made you so happyTo play in the sideIn your absenceWe still feel you hereThe big number fiveSo vivid, so clearRyan, we love youWith all of our heartA giant so gentleAnd now we’re apartIn your absenceWe will still play the gameBut in your absenceIt won’t be the same By Paul Dollery Image: Presseye/Lorcan Doherty/INPHO Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Une souche très rare du VIH sétend à dautres pays africains

first_imgUne souche très rare du VIH s’étend à d’autres pays africainsSelon des médecins français, une souche très rare du VIH, qui n’avait jusqu’ici été observée qu’au Cameroun, circule désormais dans le reste du continent africain.Il existe deux types de virus du sida, le VIH-1, majoritaire, et le VIH-2 peu fréquent. Le VIH-1 est lui-même subdivisé en trois groupes : M, à l’origine de la pandémie mondiale et deux autres groupes très rares, O et N. Or, jusqu’à présent, les seuls cas rapportés d’infection par le VIH du groupe N l’ont été chez des patients vivant au Cameroun. Identifié pour la première fois en 1998 dans ce pays chez une femme qui a développé le sida, sur les plus de 12.000 personnes infectées par le VIH vivant au Cameroun, seuls 12 cas d’infection par un virus du groupe N ont été retrouvés.Mais le Pr François Simon (hôpital Saint-Louis, Paris) et ses collègues du Centre national de référence du virus de l’immunodéficience humaine de Rouen rapportent dans la revue médicale The Lancet le cas d’un homme de 57 ans, vivant en France, chez qui une infection par le groupe N a été diagnostiquée. Admis en janvier 2011 aux urgences de l’hôpital Saint-Louis, l’homme rentrait du Togo.En retraçant l’histoire ce cet homme, les médecins estiment que l’infection a probablement été contractée lors de rapports sexuels au Togo, ce qui suggère que les virus du groupe N circulent désormais hors du Cameroun. Pour les médecins, l’identification de ce cas est particulièrement importante en raison des symptômes sévères présentés par le patient et de la chute précoce de son taux de CD4 (marqueur de l’immunité).Une combinaison de cinq médicaments antirétroviraux a montré une bonne efficacité initiale, mais un suivi immunologique et virologique à long terme est nécessaire, selon les médecins cités par Le 25 novembre 2011 à 11:02 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Vancouver NAACP to host Juneteenth event Saturday

first_imgWhat: Vancouver’s Juneteenth celebration, the oldest known celebration of black freedom and the end of slavery, begun in Galveston, Texas. Vancouver’s event will feature speeches and poetry readings, music and food vendors.When: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.Where: Marine Park, Southeast Columbia Way and Marine Park Way (near the Water Resources Education Center).Information: Marva Edwards, 360-909-7688, or local branch of the nation’s oldest civil rights organization is getting reorganized and raising its profile in Vancouver, says Marva Edwards, president of the local NAACP.The effort begins Saturday with a public celebration of Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day. People will gather in the afternoon at Marine Park for historical talks, poetry readings, music and more. You’re welcome to bring a picnic, but food vendors will on hand, too.Juneteenth is the oldest annual celebration of black freedom and the end of slavery in America. “It’s when news reached the slaves in Texas that the war was over and they were really free,” Edwards said. “It was their freedom day, so it’s our freedom day, too.”President Abraham Lincoln freed slaves in the Confederacy in 1862 as a wartime contingency through the Emancipation Proclamation, and the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution permanently banned slavery throughout the nation in early 1865 (as recently portrayed in the movie “Lincoln”) — but Texas still refused to comply, even after the war officially ended in April.last_img read more

Congressman Exploring New Strategy to Amend DoddFrank Act

first_imgCongressman Exploring New Strategy to Amend Dodd-Frank Act Share in Daily Dose, Featured, Government Representative Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pennsylvania) said he will be exploring a change in strategy in order to get some regulatory relief passed, after a bill that would address 12 separate fixes to the Dodd-Frank Act was thwarted by the Senate. Fitzpatrick, a member of the Financial Services Committee has introduced a bill that would give banks an additional two years to dispose of collateralized loan obligations as required by the Volcker Rule, on two separate occasions, according to a report.In January, the house passed the bill by a vote of 271 to 154, with 29 Democrats voting in favor of it. However, Senate Democrats led by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) vowed to fight the bill and it failed to pass. Democrats, including Warren, have said they worry that bills that claim to be aimed at relieving regulatory burdens for small banks are being used to roll back Dodd-Frank for the benefit of the largest financial institutions.Fitzpatrick noted Tuesday that each of the individual bills included in his legislation, the “Promoting Job Creation and Reducing Small Business Burden Act,” had bipartisan support when they either passed the full House or his committee. But when packaged together, they have drawn the ire of more liberal Democrats.“These are the bipartisan ideas,” Fitzpatrick said following an appearance in New York. “You package them together and put them on the floor. Then [Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Ma.] comes out against one of the 12, and all of a sudden we lose all our support.”The Pennsylvania Republican said that he may have to consider a new approach to getting some regulatory relief done, including possibly lifting the asset threshold, that banks used to be determined systemically important financial institutions, from the $50 billion where it currently stands and providing regulatory relief for small banks.center_img Dodd-Frank Financial Services Committee Mike Fitzpatrick 2015-03-12 Samantha Guzman March 12, 2015 563 Views last_img read more
