The Balance Foundation’s initiative on unclaimed assets received the endorsement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer in March 2004 and has the support of the Financial Services Authority. The Balance Foundation is currently focussed on discussions with investment banks and investment management companies.

A massive people’s strike explodes in Ecuador

first_imgOct. 10 — The great people’s strike has exploded in Ecuador.Today is the eighth day that road traffic in Ibarra, a city with a population of 250,000, has been completely shut down, with no buses or taxis running. It is the sixth day of suspended classes for all students. The Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (CONAIE) and the United Workers Front (FUT) called a national strike for Wednesday, Oct. 9. That call came in the wake of the massive paralyzation of the country that began with a general strike of transport workers on Oct. 3.People had already taken to the streets in cities all over Ecuador on Oct. 2 to protest Pres. Lenín Moreno’s Decree 883, which ended state subsidies for gasoline and diesel fuel. Ending these subsidies was part of a package of austerity measures imposed by the International Monetary Fund, measures that many here call the “paquetazo.” Decree 883 was the last straw for the people who have endured two years and four months of Moreno’s systematic, unconstitutional dismantling of his predecessor Raphael Correa’s impressive welfare state.In Ibarra a crowd of at least 1,000 marched to confront the appointed governor of Imbabura province at the security service ECU-911 building. Citizens, including taxi drivers and teachers, vendors and government workers, were shouting “Out Moreno! Out!” and “Down with the paquetazo.” A large banner declared: “Imbabura Resists!”Ecuador rising up in resistanceEcuadorians have risen up in every city, town and community to demand the end of the Moreno government. The country’s north-south Pan American highway is still blockaded by well-organized Indigenous people in many places. In some provinces, such as Pastaza and Cañar, people are occupying government buildings.Due to the seizure of oilfields in the Amazon, a loss of $12.8 million U.S. in revenue is reported. Accounts from various provinces use the word “chaos” to describe unfolding events. Resumen Latino Americano reported today: “The Ecuadorian Ombudsman’s Office confirmed the death of five people, including an Indigenous leader (Inocencio Tucumbi), during eight days of national protest against measures ordered by the regime.”On Oct. 7, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights for Ecuador, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, expressed concern about the excessive use of force by the government. People are saying that the repression has managed to unite Ecuadorians — quite the opposite of the desperate intentions of the hypocrite and traitor Moreno. (resumenlatinoamericano.org, Oct. 10)Quito Quito is the national capital and second-most-populous city of Ecuador, located high in the Andes Mountains. Already on Oct. 7, thousands of Indigenous people approaching Quito from the south encountered two armored vehicles blocking the highway at the Santa Rosa curve in Tambillo. A tweeted video shows the people pushing a burning tank onto the grass and down an embankment. (tinyurl.com/y5dor49j) Fifty thousand peaceful protesters, led by the CONAIE Indigenous movement, are in the streets of the historic center of Quito along with workers, peasants and people from all sectors of society. On the morning of Oct. 9, hundreds of Indigenous people made history by holding a People’s Assembly in the National Assembly building before the forces of repression ended the occupation with tear gas. The Eugenio Espejo Hospital across the street from the National Assembly was similarly gassed, provoking outrage among the people. GuayaquilTens of thousands marched and are marching for the National Strike/Paro Nacional in Guayaquil, Ecuador’s most populous city located on the Pacific Coast. Mayor Cynthia Viteri and former Mayor Jaime Nebot (Partido Social Cristiano) of Guayaquil organized what to all appearances was a fascistic right-wing march on Oct. 9 “in defense of Guayaquil.” This was after the two rightist leaders urged followers to stop “outsiders” — that is, Indigenous people − from entering the city, claiming they were coming to “trash” it. An Indigenous man speaking with great emotion in both Quechua and Spanish in the Guayaquil region was recorded saying: “There are more than 500 people from Chimborazo province in Guayaquil. … You Social Christians say, ‘Indios go back to your mountains, you are not going to take a step in Guayaquil.’ Carajo! You live here thanks to us! “If nothing passes from Chimborazo to Guayaquil you will all die of hunger. … Let’s get radical and not send anything from Chimborazo to Guayaquil. … If we let them die of hunger, that’s the only way they will understand.” #FlashBananero/#QUITO reported in tweets: “Indigenous leaders in El Arbolito Park (Quito) declared the mayor of Guayaquil, #CynthiaViteri, persona non grata due to her regionalist, racist and incendiary statements.”EsperanzaCuartel Militar Yaguachi is a military base located on the outskirts of Esperanza, 7 miles south of Ibarra on the road to Cayambe. That city is in an agricultural area 27 miles from Ibarra. The rural population around Cayambe is primarily Indigneous.   Armed forces from Yaguachi used extreme violence to repress the Indigenous community of Caranqui people who went into the streets to protect the Esperanza community. Councilwoman Betty Romero of Ibarra called on all citizens to collect water and food to support the besieged community of Esperanza, where some 1,500 people were reported to be in the streets yesterday. People have answered her call. When a resident of Ibarra purchased large quantities of rice, sugar, salt, tuna, noodles, oatmeal and cooking oil to send in solidarity with the people under siege, they had a nice surprise. When the vendor learned the produce was for Esperanza, they lowered prices significantly and added bags of cookies. On Oct. 9, Indigenous people who live near the Yaguachi military base reported that a community leader who was shot at the beginning of the uprising on Oct. 3 has returned to the struggle. Many have been wounded on both sides. But the newspaper Diario El Norte reports that the Minister of Defense claims there have been no injuries. Communities are organizing to deliver food to isolated homes to help people deal with shortages. An Indigenous person who lives in a community near Cotachachi, not far from Ibarra, is in Quito with comuneros [groups of Indigenous peoples acting collectively] in the national uprising. Today he told of the occupation of the National Assembly and said the people would again try to take it over. He added that a call has gone out all over the country to occupy government buildings.IbarraÁlvaro Castillo is the appointed governor of Imbabura province. Neither Castillo nor the mayor of Ibarra welcomed 4,000 Indigenous comuneros of all ages who had marched for hours on Oct. 7 to deliver a manifesto to the governor. The people came from the nearby communities of Atuntaqui and Antonio Ante, and even further from Otavalo and Cotacachi. People said that Castillo refused to leave the ECU-911 building to meet them. On the other hand, councilperson Betty Romero and around 50 members of the local Revolucion Ciudadana (Citizen’s Revolution — Rafael Correa’s party) waited to greet the marchers with food and water as they entered the city. Hundreds and hundreds of these same Indigenous marchers could be seen on Oct. 8 taking food and resting by the Ibarra train station. Scores of mounted police and cops with shields, wearing full body armor and gas masks, stood ominously on the perimeter, ready for action. Well-organized and highly disciplined, the Indigenous marchers calmly formed a people’s assembly in front of the cops. They repeatedly chanted, “Take off your masks,” and finally after about five anxious minutes the cops complied with the demand. Leaders stressed that they had come in peace and that the march was not about politics. A manifesto was drafted on the street as everyone waited, and it was made public with a portable sound system in both Quechua and Spanish. The demands were: Restore the fuel subsidy eliminated by Decree 883. End the state of exception [executive martial law]. Lenin Moreno must resign. Stop sending military and police into Indigenous communities. The people stated: We will not permit our communities to be invaded with impunity by the armed agents of the state. We expect to meet with the governor. Diario El Norte reported that Castillo did meet with the Indigenous leaders, without satisfying any of their demands. He also met with transport leaders and social organizations, failing to satisfy their demands. The newspaper reported that some of the roads around the city have been reopened at least partially.The amount of information coming from a multitude of sources reporting locally in Ecuador is almost overwhelming. Today, no one can predict the outcome. The writers will continue to monitor developments and participate with the people. ¡Hasta la victoria siempre!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Outrage over death of Black trans woman in Cleveland jail

first_imgClevelandAnger over the tragic death of 28-year-old Lea Rayshon Daye in Cleveland’s Cuyahoga County Jail came out forcefully in a virtual press conference held Sept. 4. Daye’s was the second jail death here in less than two months and the 11th in two years. Found unresponsive in her cell Aug. 30, the Black trans woman died in a city deemed “an epicenter for America’s trans murder crisis” by an Aug. 17 op-ed piece in the Cleveland Scene.May 29, outside Cuyahoga County Jail. Since this protest two more prisoners have died.Credit: WW Photo: Martha Grevatt.Like Michael Wormick, who died in the same jail on July 8, Daye was houseless at the time of her arrest. Her death spotlighted the intersectionality of racism, transphobia, poverty and mass incarceration.The news conference featured speakers on all these issues, including representatives of the Coalition to Stop the Inhumanity at the Cuyahoga County Jail, Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless (NEOCH), Equality Ohio, Trans Ohio and the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland.Rev. Reegie Bunch of the Jail Coalition condemned “the final indignity of misgendering” by jail authorities and then the news media. Ellie Turan, the Community Center’s Director of Development and author of the above mentioned op-ed, called Daye’s death “an extension of lynching.” Gwen Stembridge of Equality Ohio pointed out that half of all Black trans women spend time in prison, and Chris Knestrick of NEOCH added that 30% of transgender people experience homelessness and declared that “housing is a human right.”Devinity Jones, founder and coordinator of the Community Center’s Trans Wellness Program, spoke movingly about her own experiences with the so-called “justice system.” When she appeared in court to pay a fine, a transphobic judge wrongfully sentenced her to 60 days in jail after making blatantly bigoted comments. In jail, she was subjected to a range of abuses.Jones was celled with a cisgender male prisoner. Like numerous other prisoners she slept on a mat on the floor, was fed horrible food, had inadequate medical care, was denied basic hygiene and was abused by the vicious guards known as “the men in black.” A guard sexually assaulted her while she was taking a shower. Several years ago her friend Mahogany, also a Black trans woman, died in jail when authorities denied her anti-seizure medication.The Jail Coalition was formed in December 2018 in response to eight deaths that had occurred over the previous six months, along with conditions that a U.S. federal marshals’ report called “the worst in the country.” The county jail drew national media attention earlier this year, when it released hundreds of prisoners to address overcrowding and reduce COVID spread. But recently the trend has been reversed, with numbers of prisoners climbing from a low of under a thousand to around 1,500, approaching capacity.Activists here will continue to build unity around the main demand raised at the press conference: “No more deaths in the Cuyahoga County Jail.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Masum, a journalist employed by the English-language daily The New Age, who was arrested and tortured by an elite crime and counter-terrorist force, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), on 22 October in Dhaka.Masum told Reporters Without Borders from his hospital bed that he thinks he will take months to recover from his injuries.“It is encouraging that the authorities have responded to this incident by creating a commission of enquiry,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The torturers must be punished and Masum must be compensated. But more importantly, the government must give the security forces, including the RAB, clear instructions to put a stop to arbitrary arrests and mistreatment of journalists and human rights activists.”Members of a RAB unit identified as RAB-10 entered Masum’s home on 22 October and tortured him while others pretended to discover drugs there. They then took him to their headquarters in Dhalpur and held him for about 10 hours, torturing him and threatening to kill him with the aim of extracting a confession.Masum said the police officers vented on him the rage they felt towards The New Age’s editor, Nurul Kabir. The newspaper has carried articles linking the RAB to extrajudicial executions and drug cases. Masum was finally freed after The New Age interceded on his behalf.The RAB issued a statement on 24 October expressing regret about incident. The RAB director general told The Daily Star that a commission had been set up to investigate and take measures against those responsible for mistreating Masum. Other arrests have marred the record of the new civilian government as it completes its first year in office. Hasibur Rahman Bilu, The Daily Star’s correspondent in the northern city of Bogra, was held for several hours on trumped-up charges on 19 October.Bilu told Reporters Without Borders he was in Malaysia when, according to complaints brought against him, he allegedly tried to extract money from individuals on false pretences. He added that a former official was involved in this act of harassment.Bangladesh rose more than 10 places in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index but it is still in the bottom third (121st out of 175 countries).
