Europe austerity met with mass, militant protests


first_imgMadrid, March 21.The European Central Bank decided a few years ago that to properly enforce its policy of harsh austerity on countries like Greece, Ireland, Italy and Portugal, it needed a spanking new, luxurious headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany, that cost $1.4 billion.When Blockupy and other progressive anti-capitalist organizations issued a call to stop this travesty of economic justice, 6,000 people — mostly youth, judging from the videos on YouTube, the French TV blog francetvinfo and RT — came out March 18 to actively try to stop the ­ceremonies.According to an extensive eyewitness caption by P.M. Cheung on Flickr, at least a thousand of the early protesters were from outside Germany. Some 200 protesters complained that they were injured, and 150 cops went to the hospital. RT reported that the cops said 200 of the 350 people arrested were Italian.The Blockupy protests began a little before 6 a.m. and lasted until late morning.The cops — 7,000 were assigned — used mass baton charges with 50 to a few hundred men, coordinated by drums, to deploy tear gas and pepper spray. Also appearing on a five-hour RT video were a water cannon, at least one armored personnel carrier with a bulldozer blade and helicopters that appeared to be firing tear gas grenades.The protesters responded to the cops with paving stones, set seven cop cars on fire, brought umbrellas to deal with the pepper spray, masks for the tear gas and set fire to the barricades they built in the roads leading to the ECB headquarters. A police station in the Zeil neighborhood was attacked and damaged.The German Left Party endorsed the demonstration and condemned the police violence. The German Communist Party and its youth organization took part in the Blockupy actions and defended them. In the later transnational demonstration that filled Frankfurt’s main square, more than 20,000 people came from all over Europe.Solidarity with GreeceAccording to P.M. Cheung, this demonstration had the slogan, “Let’s Take Over The Party! There is nothing to celebrate in the Crisis Regime.” The protest was also directed against the austerity policies of the Troika, which, in addition to the ECB, include the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund. Cheung also pointed out, “The protesters, on numerous signs and banners, denounced the inhuman refugee policy, increasing social injustice and called for a struggle against capitalism.”There were contingents of Turkish women and of Kurdish women and a few signs in Greek.Alexis Tsipras, the Greek prime minister, is visiting Berlin, beginning March 22. Syriza, the party he heads, was elected on a platform of softening the harsh austerity that the Troika have imposed on Greece — austerity firmly supported and inspired by Germany.Currently there is a serious run on Greek banks, and tax revenues have fallen so low that the Greek government might not be able to meet its next payroll. The German bankers lose out if Greece stops using the euro, which would destabilize that currency, which has already fallen with relation to the dollar.Greece leaving the eurozone would likely mean it would pull out of the European Union, creating chaos and uncertainty. But German bankers want every last euro that Greece owes.This demonstration indicates there is a huge amount of solidarity with Greece in Europe. European workers see defending Greece as defending their own interests.Hundreds of thousands march for dignity in SpainHundreds of thousands of people came from all over the different nations and provinces of the Spanish state on March 21. They gathered in Columbus Square in Madrid, the capital, to make the following demands: “For food, jobs, housing and dignity!” Seven years ago, such demands might have only impacted a small minority of people. But this March 21, millions have had no jobs for two to five years, have been refused hospital care and/or have lost their homes to the banks, unable to pay their mortgages.A demonstration making similar demands for dignity a year ago was much larger. Even so, organizers say this year’s march was a half million. One slogan raised at this year’s protest was to prepare a general strike for next October.In an appeal to the demonstrators, the organization Red Network (Red Roja) wrote in a March 21 communique that the people must demand no payment of the debt and that:“We need to unite, to organize neighborhoods, towns, businesses and schools, and strike a blow together, all at one time. Only through the unification of our struggles, only if the people who are working and suffering get organized, can we bring about policies that work in our own favor.“The vote is not enough. The people need to organize. The people need to rule. That would be Dignity.”Montreal students against austerityFor Quebec, it wasn’t that cold — negative 32 degrees Fahrenheit, with a 10-mile-per-hour wind and only light snow. Some 5,000 students came out March 21 to an “illegal” march to protest the “effects of austerity and the oil industry,” according to Camille Godbout, the spokesperson for the Association of Solidarity of Unions and Students (ASSE), which called the action.Godbout told the La Presse Canadienne that 45,000 students will walk out over the next two weeks and that 145,000 are considering what to do. The ASSE has called for protests in Montreal every other Saturday.Eighty-five thousand students have voted to support a province-wide strike. The effects of budget cuts have left many students angry.The ASSE is part of a broader coalition called Let’s Refuse Austerity, which consists of unions and community groups. This coalition is planning to call a provincewide general strike on May Day.John Catalinotto contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


Women’s basketball fall to UT, 77-67


first_imgLinkedin Sam Fristachihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sam-fristachi/ Linkedin TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks printHead coach Raegan Pebley said her team was unable to match Texas’ strong second half on Wednesday night. Photo by Heesoo Yang.TCU women’s basketball fell to the Texas Longhorns 77-67 on Wednesday night in Schollmaier Arena.“We started off the game really well,” head coach Raegan Pebley said. “Obviously they had a really strong second half and their effort on the boards was unmatched.”In the first quarter, TCU came out to an early 13-4 lead led by senior guard Jaycee Bradley, who scored 10 of her 14 points during that run. Texas would come back within six at one point, but the Horned Frogs would end the quarter with a 23-16 lead.The Longhorns started the second quarter strong, coming within four points of the Horned Frogs. Guard Kianna Ray would respond with a three-pointer to bring the lead back to seven.Texas had five turnovers in the second quarter and would not score any field goals in the final 3 minutes of the quarter.TCU would go into the half with a 35-26 lead.The offense picked up for UT in the third quarter. They went on an 8-0 run and came within one point of the Horned Frogs. Their run may have been sparked by the absence of guard Jayde Woods who left the second quarter after colliding with a UT player but later returned in the third quarter with a bandage and stitches over her right eye. “I don’t think we were quite the same team when Jayde went down,” Pebley said. “We lost some efficiency on both ends of the floor.”With just over five minutes to go in the third quarter, the Longhorns gained their first lead of the game, 43-38 and wouldn’t look back. They ended the quarter with a 53-47 lead.UT continued to cruise in the fourth quarter, extending the lead to 11 points right away.First-year guard Celeste Taylor led the Longhorns by scoring 13 of her 22 points in the fourth. TCU would shoot 29 percent on field goals in the second half compared to their 40 percent in the first half. Texas’ comeback was largely due to their strong 58 percent from the floor in the second half.With the loss, TCU splits the season series with Texas, falling to 20-6 overall and 11-4 in the Big 12.The Horned Frogs will travel to Lubbock next to take on Texas Tech on Sunday. Tipoff is set for 12 p.m. Samantha Fristachi is a senior from Massapequa, New York. She is a journalism and sports broadcasting major and a business minor.

While disposing of an application under Order 7 Rule 11 of Civil Procedure Code, the Single Bench of Justice Jayant Nath noted that the plaintiff have failed to show or plead that the arbitration agreement is null and void, inoperative or incapable of being performed. Facts Certain disputes arose between the plaintiff and its subsidiary on one hand and the Republic of Uzbekistan on the other. The plaintiff expected a possible submission of disputes for resolution through an international arbitration. Accordingly, the plaintiff approached the defendant for its legal services in connection with the aforesaid possible future arbitration proceedings. The defendant issued a detailed common Engagement Letter dated 20.05.2013 in respect of possible arbitration proceedings. It is stated that the plaintiff and its subsidiary signed the Engagement Letter on 21.05.2013 at Delhi and returned a copy to the defendant. Hence, it is claimed that a concluded contract came into existence between the plaintiff and the defendant and its subsidiary at New Delhi on 21.05.2013. Some amendments in the Engagement Letter were executed on 28.05.2013. It is stated that the arbitration between the subsidiary of the plaintiff and Republic of Uzbekistan commenced on 03.09.2013. Thereafter, certain communications are said to have taken place between the defendant and the subsidiary in respect of the fee issues of the defendant. Thereafter the defendant raised a demand for an arbitration on 25.08.2017 in terms of Article 16 of the Letter of Engagement dated 20.05.2013 under the aegis of JAMS. On 01.09.2017 JAMS gave a notice for commencement of Tripartite Arbitration. Arguments Advanced by the Plaintiff The plaintiff submitted that the arbitration agreement entered into between the plaintiff and the defendant is null and void, inoperative and non-est. Reliance is placed on Section 44 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996. It was further argued that the relationship between the plaintiff-client and the defendant-firm of lawyers cannot be considered as „commercial‟ under the law in force in India. Hence, it is pleaded that Letter of Engagement seeking to resolve any possible future disputes/differences between the plaintiff and its lawyer is null and void, inoperative and non-est. Arguments Advanced by the Defendant The defendant argued that the plaintiff failed to pay the defendant‟s fee which includes fixed fees payable at specified milestones, costs and expenses incurred in relation to the ICSID Arbitration(International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes), and fees linked to the outcome of the ICSID Arbitration. that the Tribunal on 27.12.2016 issued the Award dismissing the plaintiff and the subsidiary‟s claim in the arbitration on the basis of its findings that the plaintiff and the subsidiary engaged in illegalities especially corruption in making investments in Uzbekistan. In terms of the contract between the parties, the plaintiff and the subsidiary became liable to pay the defendant unpaid fees based on the hours that the firm had invested in the case times as per regularly billed hourly rates. Observations of the Court Before entering into the merits of the application, the bench of Justice Jayant Nath analysed various judgements of the Supreme Court to observe that the courts have to be extremely circumspect and reluctant in any  manner to interfere in arbitration proceedings. The mandate is to refer parties to arbitration unless the arbitration agreement is on the face of it null and void, inoperative or incapable of being performed. The court is not to examine the legality or validity of the substantive agreement. While holding that the plea of the plaintiff under section 45 of the Act has no merit, the court highlighted that: ‘the defendant has initiated arbitration proceedings for his outstanding fees. The defendant being a law firm was advising and acting for the plaintiff subsidiary. It was to be paid for the services as agreed upon. It cannot be urged that such an agreement was completely bereft of elements of commerce. The claim of the law firm is that the plaintiff have defaulted in paying its professional charges and other aspects. The claim does not relate to professional issues. As the proceedings are substantially for recovery of money, the same would tantamount to a commercial relationship as per section 45 of the Arbitration Act.’Click here to download the Order Next Storylast_img read more

The driver, Charles Albert Poland, Jr., was shot and killed when he refused and blocked the aisle allowing about 20 children to escape. Dykes then grabbed the kindergartner and barricaded himself and the young boy inside a bunker he had built at his Midland City home.“He (Poland) is a hero and all of those children are heroes, too,” Olson told the Rotarians. “And Ethan is a remarkable little fellow. It was our mission to get him home safely.”Olson, who has two little girls, said the hostage situation was a tough time for him personally and professionally.“It was the hardest thing that I have ever experienced,” Olson said. “There were about 300 law enforcement officers on the ground every day.

And, there is a fatigue factor when you’re working 24 hours a day.
