¡Tolerancia cero! ¡Abusadores fuera!

first_imgEl siguiente editorial fue escrito por personas no conformes de género y mujeres miembros de Workers World Party/ Partido Mundo Obrero.El movimiento progresista ha recorrido un largo camino desde su vergonzosa historia de abuso de género. Todavía hay una montaña gigantesca para escalar hacia el socialismo, la equidad de género y la justicia. Vinculamos los brazos y seguiremos subiendo juntos.Debemos afirmar rotundamente que nos protegeremos mutuamente del racismo, el sexismo, la homofobia, el poder y el abuso. Si queremos tener éxito, los abusadores y sus facilitadores no deben ser bienvenidos en nuestros espacios o en nuestro movimiento.Al consultar el ensayo de 2010, “Por qué los misóginos son grandes informantes” de la activista y académica de género negra Courtney Desiree Morris, descubrimos que el peligro es doble. Misóginos y abusadores persiguen a las personas de género oprimido fuera del movimiento.Temiendo por nuestra seguridad y en el reconocimiento de que las vidas y contribuciones de mujeres trans y cis, hombres trans, lesbianas, personas homosexuales y personas que no cumplen con el género no se valoran de la misma manera que los hombres cis (heteros), desconfiamos de entrar en espacios donde no se no apoya.Perder compañeros en el movimiento siempre es un detrimento, y perder la perspectiva única de que los compañeros oprimidos por el género contribuyen a la lucha es un camino al fracaso. Al aceptar a los abusadores en los espacios de movimiento, permitimos un terreno fértil para la infiltración estatal que aprovecha los estragos que crean los abusadores.Las personas de género oprimido tienen derecho a defenderse del abuso, la homofobia y la misoginia. Tenemos derecho a responsabilizar a las organizaciones que no apoyan nuestra autodeterminación. Los espacios y las organizaciones que no tienen esto en cuenta crean una situación insostenible para el siglo XXI.Se espera que las mujeres y otras personas de género oprimido se silencien y sufran abusos en un esfuerzo por construir la unidad. ¿Unidad para quién? No la unidad con las mujeres y otras personas de género oprimido que tienen todo el derecho de insistir en su inclusión en el movimiento. Después de todo, también estamos luchando por la liberación. Somos la columna vertebral de la lucha por la liberación.Los abusadores y sus facilitadores verán esta insistencia por la seguridad como prueba de que no estamos poniendo el movimiento primero. Se nos dice que “cerremos los ojos y pensemos en el socialismo”. Pero, ¿qué socialismo podemos visualizar cuando no podemos estar seguros de que priorizará nuestra seguridad y nuestras contribuciones? Solo podemos ver una forma de socialismo que prioriza nuestra seguridad y contribuciones.Bajo una administración de Trump que está atacando los cuerpos de mujeres, personas trans y GNC, las personas de género oprimido tienen una ira cada vez mayor. Es una ira justa. Nuestro temor de que nuestros camaradas y aliados en el movimiento no nos apoyen se manifiesta cada vez que se permite que un abusador permanezca en nuestro movimiento.Si bien la justicia transformadora es un modelo importante para desarrollar, no se puede practicar en un entorno donde las mujeres y las personas de género oprimido se sientan bajo amenaza física. No puede desarrollarse en un entorno en el que sentimos que nuestros camaradas y aliados no nos apoyen. No se puede desarrollar en un entorno donde los abusadores no se responsabilicen por sus acciones.Hasta que haya una unidad en torno a eliminar a los abusadores de nuestro movimiento, no puede haber discusión sobre cómo traerlos de regreso como individuos sanados.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Potential Brexit impacts see 888 assess Gibraltar operations

first_img EU research agency demands urgent action on loot box consumer safeguards July 29, 2020 Share FTSE250 operator 888 Holdings (888) is considering alternatives to Gibraltar as its operational centre, should the British Overseas Territory be negatively impacted or restricted by Brexit.The governance of 888, are the first industry stakeholders to publicly view Brexit as a potential ‘future risk’ for its operations. Publishing its 2016 annual report, 888 detailed that Gibraltar’s current licensing remit remains ‘unclear’ with regards to servicing European gaming jurisdictions.Last month, 888 CEO Itai Frieberger outlined the importance of growth within European regulated markets as a key dynamic of 888’s ongoing strategy and corporate value.Looking forward, a Gibraltar Remote Gambling License may not be sufficient to fulfil 888’s regulatory strategy as certain EU member states could potentially deem Gibraltar regulatory provisions as ineligible once the UK officially leaves the European Union.“The proposed status of Gibraltar in relation to the United Kingdom as a result of ‘Brexit’ is at present unclear,” 888’s 2016 annual report details“If 888 were to remain registered, licenced and operating in Gibraltar in these circumstances, its ability to rely on EU freedom of services/establishment principles in supplying its services within the EU will be limited.”The combination of low corporate taxes (1% cap) and Gibraltar’s full membership to the EU have seen the UK independent territory become the operational home to more than 30 online betting operators including; GVC, BetVictor, 888 Holdings and 32Red. With over 5000 sector employees the online gambling industry remains Gibraltar’s largest employer (population 32,000).Last January, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the UK and Gibraltar should be deemed as ‘single entity’ in their freedom to provide business services, making it unlikely that the EU will provide any dispensation for the overseas territory to access the EU common market.

Varadkar and Johnson expected to speak ahead of G7 summit

first_imgTaoiseach Leo Varadkar and British prime minister Boris Johnson are expected to speak again by phone next week, before Mr Johnson attends the G7 summit of world leaders.Sources confirmed the phone call is likely to take place as part of a fresh round of appeals by Mr Johnson to EU leaders and before he travels to the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, next weekend.Mr Varadkar and Mr Johnson have to date held one phone call a fortnight after the new British prime minister gained power, and are due to hold a face-to-face meeting in early September. However, next week’s phone call is likely to prove vital to setting the tone for future engagements in the lead up to the October 31 Brexit deadline, with it still being unclear if the two leaders will meet in September in Dublin or London.The phone call is expected to see Mr Johnson again push for the backstop to be scrapped, and for Mr Varadkar to underline the importance of protecting the Good Friday agreement.Downing Street has separately indicated Mr Johnson will use the coming days to speak with a number of other EU leaders, including key figures French president Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Biarritz next week.The fresh diplomatic efforts come as opposition parties in Britain continue to push for an alternative government to block a no-deal Brexit, and as leaked German government papers stressed Berlin will oppose any backing down on the existing withdrawal agreement if it damages the Irish backstop.

Fishing the North Coast: Fall kings yet to show on the Klamath

first_imgThe fall run of Klamath River Chinook has yet to really take off, which is a little unusual heading into the third week of August. There’s been flurries of fish moving in the estuary, but not many are choosing to head upriver as of yet. Reportedly, the commercial boats have been seeing lots of salmon offshore of the Klamath mouth. It should be just a matter of time before they decide to make their way upriver in big numbers. According to Dan Troxel, an Environmental Scientist on the Klamath …last_img read more

COP 17 climate talks set to intensify

first_img2 December 2011The first week of the annual UN climate change summit is usually a relatively sedate affair, and COP 17 in Durban has not been an exception.But with the six panels wrapping up their discussions on Saturday ahead of the high-level segment involving ministers and heads of state, next week will see the start of an intense debate on what the global path to addressing the effects of climate change should be.At least 12 heads of state and 130 government ministers from around the world are expected to join the talks next week.‘Progress on several issues’The UN reported on Friday that major progress had been made on several issues, including the structure of the adaptation package agreed on in Cancun, Mexico last year, finance and technology.Negotiators were, however, still locked behind closed doors hammering out possible solutions to the complex debate around the Kyoto Protocol and the Green Climate Fund.Developing countries are pushing for a second commitment period for the Protocol, which was signed in 1997, committing industrialised nations to measurable emission reduction targets. Earlier this week, Canada became the first developed country to give an indication that it was no longer interested in the Protocol.Major economies, which include the United States and Japan, are refusing to commit.Kyoto Protocol in the balanceUNFCCC executive secretary Christiana Figueres could not confirm reports on Friday that there was a stalemate on the protocol as reported, say the ministers’ session next week would provide direction on the future of the treaty.“As you know, the issue of the Kyoto Protocol is a very crucial issue and central for Durban and discussions are taking place,” Figueres said.She said governments had ample time over the coming weekend to go through a list of proposals which, among others, include the structure of the adaptation package, technology transfer and mitigation plans.The European Union said it was in favour of the new term of commitment to the Protocol, but has attached conditions to this.Figueres said South African International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, in her capacity as COP 17 president, had also started consultations on the EU’s position.Russia has also proposed amendments to the convention to allow for a periodic revision of countries that are under certain obligations to cut emissions. Currently, developing nations have fewer obligations to reduce their greenhouse gas emission compared with major economies.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

World Cup of Disabled Golf tees off in South Africa

first_img21 May 2014The South African Disabled Golf Association will break new ground this week with the hosting of the inaugural World Cup of Disabled Golf, which tees off at Zebula Golf Estate and Spa in Limpopo province on Wednesday.The event is a 54-hole stroke-play championship and has drawn entries from Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand, Sweden and the United States.In-form rising stars Daniel Slabbert and Reinard Schuhknecht will partner with seasoned campaigner Conrad Scholtz in chasing down a home victory.‘A really big deal’Kathu’s Slabbert said there is a lot of pride at stake for the South African team. “The World Cup is a really big deal, but to tee it up for South Africa here at home is huge,” the three-time Nedbank SA Disabled Golf Open champion said in a statement on Tuesday.“We are South Africa’s first disabled golfers to earn national colours, along with our team manager, Eugene Vorster. We all definitely feel the pressure, because to wear the green and gold is an enormous honour for any athlete.“The South African Disabled Golf Association worked incredibly hard to make this event happen and we want to do the country proud by winning the first World Cup.”Schuhknecht believes the South African trio have had enough laps around the 6 829 metre Zebula layout over the last week to prepare for the challenge.“We all played in the Nedbank SA Disabled Golf Open here last week and we’ve had some practice rounds since, so we are definitely ready for the World Cup,” the 2013 World One-Arm Stroke Play champion explained.“However, every team here wants to be the first winners of the World Cup, so the competition will be stiff. We just have to give it our best shot and make sure we come out on top.”Stranglehold brokenJust a week ago, reigning Canadian and American amputee golf champion Josh Williams broke Slabbert’s stronghold on the country’s premier disabled golf tournament and added the South African Disabled Open title to his tally.The Kitchener native is relishing the chance to win the inaugural World Cup for Canada alongside Johannes Grames and Robert MacDermott.“I love team competitions, so I am really looking forward to the challenge this week,” Williams said.“It’s a fine thing to own three national titles, but in a team competition, it’s all down to how you perform on the day.“We had a great practice round, and I’m confident we’ll do well here. The course is in fantastic nick, despite the struggles they have had with drought in this neck of the woods.“It’s a long layout, but it is very fair and if you go off-line here, you will pay the price.”‘Tough competition’The Canada Post employee said he is expecting a tough week. “We have some serious competition here this week,” he said. “Daniel and Reinard finished second and third last week, so they will be looking for a home victory and a little revenge. But we also have guys like Geoff Nicholas from Australia, Kenny Bonz and Tracy Ramin from the USA, who can be dangerous.“As far as I am concerned, everyone has brought their A-game and the World Cup is wide open.”Multiple US Amputee Championship winner Nicholas will partner Graham Kenyon and Shane Luke for Australia, while Bonz from the United States will line up with James Curley and Ramin, who finished sixth at the Nedbank SA Disabled Golf Open.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
