Why I am waiting for the Greggs share price to fall even more

first_img Enter Your Email Address Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Karl Loomes | Thursday, 29th October, 2020 | More on: GRG Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Image source: Getty Images. Karl has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! I have long been a fan of Greggs (LSE: GRG), and I don’t just mean its sausage rolls. It has a strong brand, good customer loyalty, and I think it is well managed. Unfortunately for me, the Greggs share price has always reflected this. No bargain to be had.With coronavirus and lockdown however, an opportunity may be coming. The Greggs share price is still holding up well, but I do think there may be more pressure ahead.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Second lockdownMy main reason for thinking the Greggs share price will see more pressure is because of a second lockdown. It now almost seems certain that the UK will have to put in place another lockdown at some point.In the interim, Tier 3 lockdowns will be having a similar effect on non-essential businesses. Wales is undergoing a circuit breaker lockdown right now. All these places have Greggs shops that are not open and not selling. This drop in sales will filter through to results at some point.The company has already said it will need to roughly halve its staff hours to avoiding letting people go. In July, it was forced to ask its banks for additional finance to help it weather the Covid-19 storm.In my opinion, a second lockdown seems likely to hit the Greggs share price further. I will be waiting for it to do so, and watching for when the next lockdown ends.The upside for the Greggs share priceThe lockdown is no doubt a negative for the Greggs share price, but the company has a lot going on in the positive column too. Firstly, it has already managed to do very well all things considered.In September, the company reported trading at about 76% of 2019 levels. Not bad given social distancing measures. While many of its more upmarket peers have been suffering from a lack of office traffic, Greggs has taken less of a hit on that front.Greggs has a much greater high street presence than it does in office locations. Ideal of course when people are working from home. It has also made efforts to focus on retail parks and roadside locations. Again, both places likely to see greater footfall than office hubs in the foreseeable future.One additional factor that I see as positive for the Greggs share price is its move towards online deliveries. After a trial period, Greggs has joined with Just Eat to deliver its products in certain areas.This comes at the perfect time, when lockdown means food deliveries and takeaways increase. When lockdown finally ends, this and its strong brand will help it already be an established presence in the delivery arena.As I said, personally I am on the look out to invest. For now though, I just feel the Greggs share price could have further to fall. Another lockdown is key for me. I am on the watch for the best bargain I can get.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Why I am hopeful about the Trayvon Martin case

first_img Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH By Stacy SaulsPosted Mar 28, 2012 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Featured Events Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Comments are closed. Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Bud Sherwood says: This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Kyle Green says: March 29, 2012 at 11:52 pm Thank you, Bishop Sauls. At least you did write about an issue that mothers, fathers and sons have faced before. Thank you! March 29, 2012 at 8:43 am That is the point he is making. It *seemed* clear to him at first but then he says: When I get less angry, I look at it a little differently. One thing I have learned repeatedly in my life is to be suspicious of what appears to be clear particularly when there are other rational sources who are seeing it as not so clear at all.So as you can see if you read his entire essay, the facts are not clear to him at all, which is why he is glad the case is being properly investigated. March 29, 2012 at 12:08 am Our COO says nothing at all about the effect of the iniquitous “Stand Your Ground” Law.. If GZ eventually goes free, it is because of the confrontation that apparently took place. It is reported that GZ followed TM by car, and got out of the car. A physical fight took place, in the course of which GZ received some minor injury, which he parlayed into his claim of “self defense”.This story has more chapters to be heard, including confirmation (if possible) of my own understanding.I agree that we need to be patient, although I find it easy to understand why an 815 administrative leader felt compelled to express the dismay felt by so many of us.I hope that in due course, after her return from abroad and more facts are known, our Chief Pastor may have some reflection for us.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest March 28, 2012 at 9:45 pm I have a horrid suspicion that the fact that all the facts are not known is because the authorities are moving in awful dread of the NRA. Is not George Zimmerman a poster boy for that meretricious organization? After all, he was licensed to carry a loaded firearm. He was licensed to use it in “self-defense.” He has not been arrested. How does one explain the inaction of the authorities to arrest [Zimmerman] and throw him in jail while the matter is investigated. All we have is a dead body and his side of the story. Thank you, Bishop Sauls, for explicating this tragedy. When did the constitutional right to “keep and bear arms” trump the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”? Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI March 29, 2012 at 7:31 am Mr. Ryan,You speak as though you have personal insight as to how young Trayvon Martin was reared. Furthermore, you mentioned his two-week suspension from school as if that has one iota to do with the reason he is no longer among us. You mentioned, or should I say, you alluded that Mr. Martin was wandering around in a strange gated community when, based on what is known to be fact, he had every right to be there. He was not wandering around, Mr. Ryan; he was making his way back to the residence at which he was a guest.And, if he, Mr. Martin, was trying to “beat someone’s brains out by smashing his head in to the concrete”, shouldn’t that “poor” soul be in the very least showing some signs of medical treatment, such images clearly not evident in the newly released video footage of the “injured” shooter at the Sanford Police Department? God does heal all wounds, after all.Let’s see what else this “Al Sharpton hate crimes hoax” unravels.I am grateful for Bishop Sauls’s reflections. They are helping to reconcile my raw emotions. Ernest E Thompson says: March 29, 2012 at 10:04 pm Sen. Jim Webb has a national crimes bill to overhaul the prison and sentencing system. He’s been unable to get it passed by the Senate since 2009; most recently failing by just 3 votes. He needs our public support. jack ryan says: March 28, 2012 at 8:18 pm Thank you Bishop. As the facts are more fully known (and all the facts will never be known) we will continue to be confronted with this terrible tragedy no matter what. Had a different kind of response from the authorities occurred more quickly perhaps some of the pain of this event would have been lessened. Your thoughtful comments are much appreciated.

My family used to attend an Episcopal church in this neighborhood. The surrounding neighborhoods are close to 100% Black African American, we have severe problems with Black teenagers getting shot, shooting each other. We don’t have any local problems with evil White RACISTS unfairly targeting Black teens in hoodies and shooting them dead – no no problems with that at all.The Trayvon Martin case is shaping up to be just another Al Sharpton hate crime hoax. Martin might have been a cute, lovable lad when the photo used in this hate crime propaganda blitz was taken, but he was a troublesome 17 year old when he got into the trouble that resulted in his death. Much of the blame falls on his parents who didn’t do the simple things parents must do when their teens get in trouble. If your 17 year old son is suspended from school for 2 weeks, you have to work hard to see that he is disciplined, that you know where he is at night and during the day and that you don’t let him go wandering around in strange gated communities dressed up in a hoodie and drawing attention to yourself as criminal, trouble maker and then see that your son doesn’t try to beat someone’s brains out by smashing his head in to the concrete.OK, this is basic stuff – parenting 101, things the Episcopal church and other churches in our country used to do. We need to do these simple things again to save your teenage boys. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY [Huffington Post] This article first appeared on the Huffington Post here.In some ways I worry that I have no right to speak on the events of the last week in the United States, and especially in Florida, where I happen to be at the moment. I am, after all, a white person, and the victim of this unspeakable event is African American. I am also a white person who is the father of two sons who are not. I am a white Southerner who grew up in a world where segregation was the law and learned over time while I was growing up that the way things were did not in fact speak to the way things had to be because, as a matter of faith, they did not speak to the way God wanted things to be. I am a white Southerner who learned over the course of growing up that morality was a term that went beyond sex and had something to do with justice and peace. Even then, I’m not sure I have a right to speak about this event. But I am also a pastor, a minister of the Gospel. And I am a bishop who has taken a vow to “defend those who have no helper” (BCP, p. 518). I have no right to speak, and yet I must speak.It seems to me there are four things that need to be said about the death of Trayvon Martin.The first is that, regardless of anything else, a precious child of God has been lost. Sadly, this is not a rare phenomenon. Precious children of God are lost to violence in our country every day. It is often related to drugs and human greed. It very frequently has to do with being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Most receive nothing like the attention of Trayvon’s death. Yet, they all deserve to. It is truly an American tragedy. And Trayvon’s death ought to grieve our hearts at the deepest level. They all should. Perhaps Trayvon’s death will also help us remember about all the children who die senselessly in our country.The second is that one thing Trayvon’s death has brought to our attention in a forceful way is that every time an African American teenager, and indeed any minority teenager, walks out of the house, they are not as safe as a white teenager. And part of the horrible reason why has to do with prejudice, stereotypes and bigotry by people in power. This ought to be a call to action to us. It is imperative that we find a way to make this different. I do not have the prescription for correcting this blight on America, but I am convinced that America is, in fact, filled with people of good will of all racial backgrounds who can in fact find a way. It is urgent that we pledge ourselves to be part of that effort.The third is that one of the potential tragedies of this event grows from the fact that Trayvon Martin was an African American and George Zimmerman was Latino. One of the so far (I think thankfully) unspoken themes of this event might have to do with pitting one minority group against another. Nothing would better benefit oppression than placing one group of oppressed people against another. We do not have time for that. We only have time to be united for justice. Otherwise, I guarantee, injustice will win in our day, even if not ultimately.The fourth relates to the specifics of this case, a danger and a note of hope. This is the hardest thing for me to say, and the one I feel most unqualified to say. I fear I say it because I cannot help but look at this horrible reality through white eyes.What has come out so far seems to paint a relatively clear picture of what happened. That makes it very difficult to see why action has not already been taken to arrest the shooter. We cannot help but wonder if the shooter had been black, and the victim, white, would an arrest not have already been made? At least I cannot help but wonder that. And when I think about it, I find myself getting angrier.When I get less angry, I look at it a little differently. One thing I have learned repeatedly in my life is to be suspicious of what appears to be clear particularly when there are other rational sources who are seeing it as not so clear at all. When I get less angry, I look at some other facts. One is that this killing is not only in the hands of the local police or even the State of Florida. It is also in the hands of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. That assures me there are authorities involved beyond local politics and local prejudices. In the days of the Civil Rights Movement in my native South, it was the involvement of federal authorities that was the guarantor of justice. I am hopeful that will again be true.I am also heartened that state and local authorities are taking some important steps in the right direction. One was the voluntary stepping aside of the police chief. His leadership was compromised, and he got out of the way. That is good. Another is that a special prosecutor has been appointed. Another good sign and appropriate step.All those things confront me with an uncomfortable reality. Local authorities seem to be acting in appropriate ways procedurally. The federal government, particularly the FBI, are involved and overseeing everything, which makes me more optimistic that justice will be done. In light of the fact that those things are true and still no arrest has been made, might it be that there are some facts about this case that I do not know? Might it be that things are not so clear after all, at least to those who know more than I do? Could it be that people of good will committed to justice, particularly those without a local connection, know things not yet shared with the public that makes an arrest, at least at this point, unwise or even unjustified? We simply do not know. The question before us, though, is whether we are going to trust the system. It is admittedly difficult, but I find myself reluctant to despair of it yet. Thinking that complex things are clear leads to tragedy. In fact, that likely has a lot to do with what led to the tragic death of Trayvon in the first place. We must not succumb to it.There are two notes of danger here in something of a tension. One is that we will be complacent in holding the authorities to account. But another is that we will be cynically suspicious. Neither is good. I think one of the challenges for us spiritually is to be appropriately trusting and appropriately suspicious at the same time. That, I think, is most likely to lead to the truth. It is, though, a hard balance to maintain, especially when our emotions are otherwise.And I’ll tell you why, and this is a major difference from my growing up years in the segregated South. That has to do with my confidence in President Obama. The President spoke these crucially important words, the significance of which cannot be overlooked: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Those are words that were inconceivable until quite recently, that the son of the President of the United States might look like Trayvon Martin. And they are words that change everything. What made the system so suspect to me is whether it was possible for those at the highest level of power in our country to see their own face in the face of Trayvon. At the very least, the person of at the very top now can.That gives me something that is even more important spiritually than being confident that justice will be done. It gives me hope, hope that justice will be done, even when I cannot see clearly from my vantage point what justice looks like right now.President Obama said one other thing that makes me hopeful. He has promised that we will get to the bottom of what happened. The fact that he can see his face in Trayvon’s may be just the guarantee we need that we have not had before. For now, at least, I am inclined to trust the President and support him with prayer, as well as the people of Florida and, most especially, the family of Trayvon. For now, I think, I am inclined to wait. And I also think I have every reason to wait in hope.God, I know, has promised that justice will roll down like mighty waters. I am hopeful. And I believe I have reason to be hopeful.Bishop Stacy Sauls is the Chief Operating Officer of the Episcopal Church. He was formerly the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Lexington (KY). Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR John Harris says: Associate Rector Columbus, GA March 28, 2012 at 9:16 pm Wednesday, March 28, 2012Dear God,I write to you because my heart is sad; nay, my heart is heavy and I am filled with fear and disbelief. I am bewildered, surprised, nay shocked. Because no arrest has been made. And I am convinced that had Trayvon been white and Zimmerman been black, an arrest would long since have taken place and bail set sufficiently high that there would be no risk of flight and security watch kept so strong that the suspect would not have opportunity to try self-infliction. I just can’t believe that here we are in the twenty-first century; a crime – murder — has been committed; there appears to be enough circumstantial evidence to at least name a suspect; but no arrest has been made. No, I am not a lawyer; Yes I know I have mixed in some technical legal terms in this letter to you. But you know what I mean — had the situation been reversed, an arrest would have been made. One writer says do not dismay; there must be good reason why; I can’t imagine what the good reason is why an arrest has not been made; another argument says perhaps all the facts are not yet in …I thought all the facts came out at a trial; now I wonder whether there will ever be a trial. Dear God, can you please reveal to me why an arrest has not been made? I just can’t believe things are going down this way. Some may counter – be more specific – what do I mean by this way…which way. I can’t answer all of that. But what I do know is Had the circumstances been exactly the same except for the race/color reversal, Trayvon – white, Zimmerman– Black, an arrest would long have been made. To be honest, I cannot articulate 5 points or three points or two points right now. I’m just too wrought with disbelief over the thought that won’t go away. No arrest –no arrest – no arrest. That’s all I got to say – the waters of justice at present seem to be receding instead of rolling down. Lack of an arrest, it seems to me, is a threat to justice everywhere. Until an arrest is made, I grieve for our nation and for our justice system. But I know your justice will prevail. O God arise and help us. Amen.

If there is any bright spot to the catastrophic landscape brought about by the destructive typhoons, it is the immediate response of the Filipino people, even those directly affected, wanting to help fellow Filipinos. Donations from all over the country usually come pouring in, not only from the coffers of rich corporations or institutions or enclaves of the rich but more so from millions of simple folks sharing a peso or a kilo of rice just to be able to save or feed others. Volunteerism for rescue and relief operations remain strong, with many volunteers risking and a few even losing their lives to bring much needed assistance to people clutching on the straw of life.Partnering with typhoon-affected communities to rebuild their lives has always been a part of the social ministry of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines (ECP) and it has always worked to enhance the positive values and practices, such as bayanihan, ub-ubbo and galatis,  that surface during these times of disaster.  Yet it is also a reality that the Church’s work has oftentimes resulted in the unintended consequence of creating and/or strengthening dole-out mentality among receiving communities. The ECP has endeavored to address this undesirable phenomenon by crafting a relief response program within the framework of sustainable development. Also in recent years, the ECP has relied more heavily upon the support and action of its members and congregations to be able to do an effective response, a complete reversal of the situations in times past when the Church and its people immediately looked up to the grace of foreign partners and donors for relief assistance whenever disaster struck.  At the height of Typhoon Pablo which hit Mindanao in December 2012, the ECP dioceses, institutions and congregations raised more than half a million pesos in relief funds.Following a more sustainable development approach, the ECP  puts  more focus on what it refers to as developmental relief and rehabilitation of livelihoods which it does with  affected communities when emergency relief responses are nearing conclusion and when most relief agencies are going home. Such approach to rehabilitation work seeks to do away with dole-outs and outright grants.  As an aftermath of  Typhoon Ondoy [Ketsana] and Peping  in 2009, the ECP initiated community loan programs in the municipality of Cabiao, Nueva Ecija and in Licab, Sta. Maria also in Nueva Ecija and the funds that have been loaned out to these groups have been paid, re-loaned and continues to be rolled over to the participating communities with new groups joining in every year. The original fund assistance contributed by the Episcopal Relief and Development and Nippon Sei Ko Kai remains intact and is even growing as soft interests were paid and ploughed back to capital in subsequent loan cycles. When Typhoon Santi [Nari] hit Nueva Ecija in October 2013, Licab was again directly hit. Many houses were damaged and the community, through Annunciation Cooperative, applied for a non-interest loan of P115,000 to rebuild the same. The ECP agreed to the requested repayment period of two (2) years.  Earlier, in August 2013, Typhoon Labuyo [Utor] hit the provinces of Isabela, Quirino and Aurora. The congregation of St. Cyril Church in Diduyon, Maddela, Quirino commenced a farm assistance project to enable farmers to re-plant their wiped-out crops. They asked for a non-interest loan of P300,000. These communities have express that for a long time that typhoons have been  destroying their lands, they have relied on the grace of outsiders but such reliance has made them more helpless and their self-worth greatly reduced. Hence, they now prefer to do loans instead of outright grants because this helps them maintain and enhance their dignity and self-worth. It is the current policy of the ECP to continually roll over all repayments for these rehabilitation efforts so that the participating communities move from rehabilitation to more longer term livelihood enhancement.SUPER-TYPHOON YOLANDAOn 8th November 2013, a super-typhoon, which accordingly is the strongest land-falling tropical cyclone ever recorded,  hit the central part of the Philippines and turned several regions into a complete wasteland. As of 4th December, the government’s National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council [NDRRMC] reported that the number of fatalities from Typhoon Yolanda [international name: Haiyan] has climbed to 5,719, with 1,779 persons still missing and 26,233 others injured. A total of 11.26 million persons or 2.38 million families have been affected, with property damage estimated at P34.37 billion.In response, a wave of support swept the entire country and many communities, including those previously hit by similar disasters, rose up to offer what they can. The disaster also captured the attention of the international community which immediately responded bringing with them, among others, expertise and technologies un-available in the country to do recovery work in what has become a global effort.THE ECP RESPONSEThe ECP joined the nation in praying for those whose lives were tragically lost and broken in the ferocious path of the super typhoon. As expected, its congregations responded with dispatch. Cash, boxes of clothing, sacks of rice, boxes of canned goods and other food stuff were donated for the affected communities. [See Annex I for the Partial List of Donations.]Because of the massive scale of devastation, the ECP not only welcomed but also encouraged the pledge of churches and agencies of the world-wide Anglican Communion, which likewise made immediate offers of assistance.  Through the Global Anglican Alliance for Relief and Development, a teleconference was held on 19th November 2013 where the ECP was requested to present its Yolanda response plans to its Anglican partner agencies. Participating in the teleconference were representatives from Episcopal Relief and Development [ERD], Anglican Board of Mission [ABM] – Australia, Primate’s Fund for World Relief and Development [PWRDF], Anglican Development [Diocese of Melbourne].Using the sustainable development approach, the ECP crafted a relief and rehabilitation program that will be implemented in three phases: a] emergency relief; b] developmental relief; and, c]  livelihood rehabilitation.For the first phase, the ECP established linkage with the National Council of Churches in the Philippines [NCCP] which provided the network and access to appropriate communities urgently needing relief assistance. The first boxes of foodstuff and clothings from various congregations, institutions and dioceses of the ECP were directly brought to the NCCP for immediate dispatch to the affected communities. At that time, there was difficulty bringing relief goods to the most affected areas due to the closure of damaged roads, airports and sea ports and the NCCP was among the few officially-accredited relief agencies prioritized to avail of the limited access.To get an on-the-ground experience and to discuss with ground staff of NCCP the areas where ECP relief will be focused, two (2) ECP staff person visited Tacloban and Eastern Samar on 25th – 28th  November 2013. On 26th November 2013, the ECP sent two truckloads, consisting of 2,200 food packs, to communities recommended by the ground staff of the NCCP, as follows:29th November 2013 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Collierville, TN Press Release Service Sto. Nino, Marabut, Western Samar Rector Smithfield, NC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Pinalangga, Marabut, Western Samar Curate Diocese of Nebraska Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS The Episcopal Diocese of Davao, whose territorial jurisdiction includes Eastern Visayas, focused its relief work on Bantayan Island. On 27th – 28th November 2013, it organized a medical mission, led by medical personnel of the ECP’s Bent Hospital in Zamboanga City and participated in by medical professionals from the Anglican Diocese of Sabah. It also distributed 1,500 food packs to Barangays Okoy and Balidbid, both of Santa Fe, Bantayan Island.The ECP’s relief work has two distinguishing  features: a] mobilization of foodstuff produced and processed by its communities; and, b]  installation of solar lighting system in evacuation and relief distribution centers.Disaster food relief usually consists of rice, noodles and canned goods. For immediate and short term relief, these food items may be acceptable but for longer term operation, the effect of these foods on consumers’ health or nutrition becomes a serious issue. Hence, the ECP is  mobilizing and using more healthful foods that are produced and processed by its communities, more specifically: vegetable noodles,  packed vegetables, camote biscuits and insumix [an easy to cook mix of dried rice, legumes and fish]. To be able to produce one (1) to three (3) tons of these food items to complete a truckload however involves the coordinative work of various communities and households working together and complementing each other – from mobilization of raw materials to actual processing. In fact, these food items constituted only a small portion of the first two truckloads as it took sometime to scale up the food processing operations . These  community-prepared and processed foods will however make up the bulk of relief goods starting with the second relief mission in mid-December and onwards.Lighting has become an urgent need in view of the destruction of sources of power in the worst-affected areas. Every night when it gets dark, affected communities relive the horrors of the deadly storm surges that came in the middle of the night of 8th November. The ECP staff who visited these areas observed that people were congregating on roadsides at night-time to get relief from the lights of passing vehicles. Also, light was needed as protection against possible violence on women and children.In some areas, generators were in use but these require gas fuel which are in short supply. Hence, the ECP mobilized its competence in community solar lighting systems and organized its first trip to Leyte and Samar for this purpose on 4th December. The solar lighting team also brought with them 200 relief packs for distribution which included hygiene kits that contained, among others, herbal soap produced by an ECP community [see story below]. As of this writing, seven [7] systems have already been installed in major evacuation centers, as follows:UCCP Center, Tacloban, Leyte being used as NCCP Field OfficeGiit Barangay Center, Giit, Tacloban, LeyteSeawall Barangay Center, Tacloban, LeyteIFI Church, Jinamoc Island, Basey, SamarIFI Sto Nino Church, Poblacion, Marabut, SamarBalud Barangay Hall/Evacuation Center, Balud, Basey, SamarPalaypay Barangay Hall, Palaypay, Basey, SamarSawa Barangay Hall, Sawa, Basey, SamarPanama Barangay Hall, Marabut, Samar(presently being installed)Carmen Drop Off Center, Carmen, Hernani, SamarUCCP Church, Porblacion Uno, Hernani, SamarDrop off Center, Hernani, SamarInstallation of the solar lighting systems was made in the above communities which agreed that when power supply is resumed in their areas, the systems will be transferred to other centers or more remote areas that have yet to be reached by such power supply.IMMEDIATE PLANSA meeting is scheduled on 16th December to draw up a program for Year 2014. This will be participated in by Ms. Sara Delaney who is currently in the Philippines, consulting with ECP on the disaster response work.  The developmental relief and livelihood rehabilitation work shall take two tracks: a] working with specifically identified communities which do not have other partners; and, b] partnering with social enterprises in the affected areas that have been adversely affected. Initial explorations on these two tracks are currently being done.Meanwhile, two (2) relief delivery operations are scheduled on the third week of December. Also, a plan is being made for the possibility of sending youth and BSA volunteers to Tacloban after Christmas to do a clean-up of debris being hauled off to a dumping site for the purpose of salvaging materials that can be used for house rebuilding. This is being planned in coordination with Tsu Chi Foundation.STORIESSince the ECP is not directly involved in relief distribution, it has no community engagements at the present time that has enabled it to observe and gather stories of people trying to get back on their feet.  The inspiring stories it has gathered so far are those that relate to the un-affected communities” efforts to be in solidarity with their brothers and sisters in the devastated regions, such as the following:1]         The Amtuagan Community Association of  Brgy.  Amtuagan, Tubo, Abra has a soap-making enterprise established under the ECP’s Development Program in 2011. This is a small-scale venture owing to the community’s difficulty of access to  bigger markets.  The road to the community from the town center is open only during dry months. Hence, the women soap makers would make soap only during these months when they can then take passenger jeeps to bring the products either for sale at the provincial capital of Bangued or send them by bus to the Episcopal Church centers [in Bontoc, Baguio or Manila]. When requested to make herbal soap for Yolanda relief,  the women did not hesitate to respond positively even if it meant manually carrying the soap products in a one-and-a-half-hour hike from the community to the town center as the road to the community is impassable for motor vehicles at this time. As of this writing, a total of 1,700 pieces of soap have been included in the hygiene kits as aforestated – soaps that were manually transported, without any additional costs, through the shoulders of men and women of Amtuagan who felt it was the least they could do to help the suffering communities.2]        The members of Anunciation Cooperative in Licab, Sta Maria, Nueva Ecija who borrowed a total of P115,000 to rebuild their homes damaged by Typhoon Santi [Nari] in October 2013 resolved to shorten the repayment period from two (2) years to one (1) year to make the borrowed fund available for similar rebuilding of homes in Yolanda devastated areas.3]         The team monitoring the camote processing in Besao, Mountain Province to ensure quality standards reported that in their inspection of the processing in the houses where it was being done, they observed that the women processors are now joined by their husbands. Previously, the latter considered camote processing a woman’s work and had never lent a hand in the activity. However, when they learned that the product was intended as relief for the super typhoon victims, husbands gave their full cooperation and assumed responsibility for the more challenging work of manual pounding or grinding of camote into flour. The monitoring team said those husbands are among the men who usually congregate after farm work for liquor drinking sessions every afternoon. The women processors therefore now have an added reason to be thankful for the opportunity to serve their suffering brothers and sisters.4]         In Caranglan, San Jose, Nueva Ecija where the ECP did a water project some years ago, a woman noticed a truck of the Episcopal Diocese of Santiago carrying sacks of rice that was parked along the highway on its way to Manila. When she learned that the rice was intended for Yolanda affected communities, she asked the driver to wait as she went to her house and got one (1) sack of rice which she donated to the relief effort. She said she also experienced devastation in her community caused by a previous typhoon.

U.S. anti-war movement leaders report from embattled Venezuela

first_imgReports from anti-war delegation members Sara Flounders and Joe Lombardo in Venezuela were used to prepare this article.Leaders of the anti-war movement in the United States arrived in Caracas on March 9 and 10 to find out firsthand the truth of how the government and population are responding to the U.S.-led attacks on Venezuela. They will use this truth to build solidarity with the worldwide efforts to stop the covert U.S. war, economic sabotage and propaganda assault on Venezuela.As they landed in Caracas, the delegates, like the Venezuelan people, were faced with a power outage caused by sabotage of the electrical grid. This interfered with transportation and communications for them, too, even though their hotel had its own power generator.Everyone in the group had planned to arrive on March 9, but some airlines insisted that the travelers have visas just to fly to Venezuela. Since the break in U.S.-Venezuelan relations, no visas are being issued in the U.S., but most of the delegation members were able to fly anyway, based on letters from their Venezuelan hosts. Saturday, March 9, sharing the same flight into Caracas were Bahman Azad, the organizational secretary of the U.S. Peace Council, the organization sponsoring the delegation; Gerry Condon, president of Veterans for Peace; Sara Flounders, co-coordinator of the International Action Center; Ajamu Baraka, national coordinator of the Black Alliance for Peace; progressive journalist Eva Bartlett; and Joe Lombardo, co-coordinator of the United National Antiwar Coalition. Arriving later that day and Sunday to complete the delegation were Sarah Martin from Women Against Military Madness; Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers of Popular Resistance; Darien De Lu, president of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom-U.S.; Miguel Figueroa, president of the Canadian Peace Congress; and Daniel Shea, board of directors, Veterans For Peace.The delegation met over the next few days with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, who discussed with them the historic struggle between the U.S. and Venezuela over who will control the great oil and gold resources of this South American nation. The fact that Washington is now acting so openly against the Venezuelan government exposes to people all over the world the real face of U.S. imperialism.Role of U.S. population is keyArreaza made it clear that the Bolivarian government attaches great importance to the potential response of the people in the U.S. He said you must be in the front lines, that you are the first victims of imperialism and that the most fundamental change will happen inside the United States. This underscores the importance of the demonstration that the members of the delegation and their organizations are building for March 30 in Washington, D.C. UNAC originally called this event to protest the upcoming 70th anniversary of NATO, set to be celebrated there by the Western warmakers on April 4. But after the U.S. moves against the government in Caracas, the coalition refocused the March 30 action more urgently on opposing U.S. intervention in Venezuela. Many organizations now support this protest.Solidarity groups in Venezuela are also paying attention to the U.S. movement. The Committee of International Solidarity (COSI) met the delegates as they arrived at the airport and have helped explain what is happening on the ground in their country. In addition to our meetings with Arreaza, the North American delegates held discussions with organizers from COSI, including its president, Carolus Wimmer; Carlos Ron, the vice minister of foreign affairs for North America, who had been stationed in New York for some time; and Pasqualina Curcio, an economist at the Central University of Venezuela.Curcio discussed the U.S. role in creating the “humanitarian crisis” in Venezuela. These include shortages of basic necessities: toilet paper, corn, milk, coffee and vital medicines. To counter these shortages, the Bolivarian government established a distribution network to serve 6 million families by importing food, medicine and hygiene products. The current U.S. sanctions on Venezuela’s oil, the blocking of its banking services and the edicts that prevent the government from using its gold reserves all restrict the ability of the Venezuelan government to satisfy basic needs. On top of this, the U.S. has handed $11 billion worth of assets of Venezuela’s national oil company, CITGO, directly to Juan Guaidó, a virtually unknown right-wing politician until U.S. Vice President Mike Pence suggested on Jan. 23 that Guaidó nominate himself to be “interim president.”U.S. frank about plans for aggressionForeign Minister Arreaza was recently in negotiations with the notorious Elliott Abrams, who just this January was appointed Special Representative for Venezuela by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Abrams had organized bloody right-wing coups in Central America in the 1980s for the Reagan administration and was also a key architect of the Iraq War. Arreaza characterized Abrams as “frank” when he told the Venezuelan that “all options are on the table” — a threat of military intervention aimed at splitting the Venezuelan military.When Arreaza then reminded Abrams that “The coup has failed,” the U.S. organizer of counterrevolutions shrugged and said, “This is a long-term project.”Arreaza explained to the anti-war delegation that in countering the shutdown of its electrical power, Venezuela had to deal with an attack on the brain of its electrical system. “The enemy knows the weakness of the system,” he said. “The U.S. knows what Venezuela could not buy or replace. Knows what we have. This is cyber terrorism!”Abrams also told Arreaza that to get peace, Venezuela must do as Nicaragua did in 1990, that is, hold a new election that the European Union would set up — and that would open the door to the right-wing. Arreaza explained to the antiwar group that Venezuela has a broad system of social protection that began under Hugo Chávez and was even further expanded after Maduro became president. “That’s why,” he said, “four days without power in several major cities did not lead to chaos,” as it would have in most of the world. The imperialists wanted an image of people looting food markets, but that failed.Russia, China and Turkey are helping Venezuela, said Arreaza. “We need the solidarity of the whole world, though. Terrorist brigades are being armed against us.”Contending forcesThe demonstration supporting Guaidó on the day the delegation arrived was smaller than its organizers had projected. While Maduro may have the support of half the population, his opposition is divided into many forces. And most of them oppose U.S. military intervention.Eastern Caracas, an upper- and middle-class area, is a base of the opposition to the Maduro government. Western Caracas is working class and Black, with a lot of support for the government. Lombardo reports that the west side used to be a real shanty town, but the Bolivarian Revolution put resources into this community and now the people live in nice apartment buildings. Guaidó’s forces, reports Flounders, were described as racist, sort of the KKK of Venezuela. Nine of the people burnt to death by the counterrevolutionary opposition in 2017 were Black Venezuelans.Even by Sunday, March 10, the delegation already had a lot of media requests for interviews. They plan a press conference at the United Nations in New York City on Monday, March 18 at 11 a.m., as well as a public webinar reportback.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Contingent Clause In Rent Deed To Increase Rent Each Year Cannot Be Read To Mean That Tenancy Was For More Than One Year Period: SC [Read Judgment]

In this case, the issue before the Apex Court was whether a rent note signed by the tenant which required compulsory registration under Section 17(1)(d) of the Registration Act, 1908? The Court noted that as per Section 17(1)(d) of the Registration Act, leases of immovable property from year to year, or for any term exceeding one year, or reserving a yearly rent requires compulsory registration. The rent deed in question did not provide for any specific period for which the rent deed was executed. In such a situation, the bench comprising of Justices Ashok Bhushan, MR Shah and V. Ramasubramanian observed: “When the lease deed does not mention the period of tenancy, other conditions of the lease/rent deed and intention of the parties has to be gathered to find out the true nature of the lease deed/rent deed.” The rent deed in question does not reserve yearly rent and there is no mention in the rent deed that it is a lease from year to year. But there is a clause (9), which provided that the tenant will be bound for making the rent money by increasing 10% each year. Referring to this clause, the court said: “Clause (9) may or may not operate in view of specific clauses reserving right of landlord to evict the tenant on committing default of non-payment of rent by 5th of every month or when landlord requires shop by giving one month’s notice. Clause (9) was a contingent clause which binds the tenant to increase the rent by 10% each year, which was contingent on tenancy to continue for more than a year, but that clause cannot be read to mean that the tenancy was for a period of more than one year.” Therefore, the Court concluded that the rent note was not such kind of rent note, which requires compulsory registration under Section 17(1)(d) of the Act. Case no.: CIVIL APPEAL NO. 2617 OF 2020 Case name: SIRI CHAND (DECEASED) Vs.
