Ivory Coast state television said that Gbagbo had issued a decree under which the state becomes the sole purchaser of cocoa in the world’s top grower and handles its export to world markets.Cocoa futures have broken 30-year highs since a disputed election in November that has triggered a power struggle between Gbagbo and rival presidential claimant Alassane Ouattara, judged by the United Nations to have won.

Super League clubs are sniffing out Union talent

first_img“He has a massive role to play this season. He’ll be involved this weekend against Leicester and is very much in our plans. We want to keep him and that’s all I can say on the matter.”Ford may be right, but there may be more than two clubs sniffing about players in the Aviva Premiership, RaboDirect Pro12 and beyond. According to Wane, Wigan may even consider a sevens star if they can find one who defends in a way he approves of. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A rare convert: Andy Powell was a high-profile defector to Super League, but he may have blazed a trail for othersBy Alan DymockWE ARE so used to hearing rumours about rugby league stars switching allegiances, hopping codes like lusty bullfrogs fleeing a pad for something better, but it is rare we hear of players going the other way.Yet yesterday it came out that Challenge Cup champions and Grand Final hopefuls Wigan Warriors were looking to scout rugby union talent with the intention of enticing some players over to the 13-man code.Talking to Love Rugby League, coach Shaun Wane admitted that having recently coaxed Andy Powell to Wigan from Sale Sharks and he would not hesitate to go to the well again for exciting union stars.“We’ve got a good foothold in rugby union in Wales, and now we’re looking further afield, to make sure that we don’t miss any gems,” he said.Turning his back on union?: Tom Biggs“I like to think outside the box too. I look at South African rugby union, I look at Fiji rugby union, and I look at rugby union youngsters coming through the system. We’re trying to find the next big name. LONDON, ENGLAND – MARCH 09: Tom Biggs of Bath in action during the LV= Cup Semi Final between Harlequins and Bath at Twickenham Stoop on March 9, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by Mike Hewitt/Getty Images) “I don’t stick to rugby league circles. Welsh rugby union is a real possibility. The market there has some great talent, with some big guys, and they’re all tough.”The revelation comes hot on the heels of a denial by Bath Rugby coach Mike Ford that winger Tom Biggs was considering a switch to his boyhood local club, Hull FC.“I have spoken to Tom and the rumours are not true,” Ford assured BBC Radio Bristol, before reaffirming that Biggs would stay in the south west.last_img read more

Baltimore community coalition kicks off Trump resistance with Unity March

first_imgThe Rev. C. D. Witherspoon, a leader of the Baltimore People’s Power Assembly, and former president of the Baltimore Southern Christian Leadership Conference, speaks to the Unity March on Jan. 14.Less than 24 hours after the Senate took the first steps towards utterly obliterating health care for vulnerable U.S. residents, community activists assembled in the sleet-slick streets of Baltimore, beneath darkening skies, to kick off the fight against the latest reactionary administration: that of billionaire fascist Donald Trump.The Unity March, organized for Jan. 14 by Workers World Party and the People’s Power Assembly, commemorated the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by challenging the encroachment of Trumpist policies of reaction on the national and local levels.“We’re fired up in Baltimore because we understand that the Donald Trumps that we experience, that we have to contend with, don’t just exist in Washington, D.C.,” said the Rev. Cortly “C.D.” Witherspoon, a prominent organizer and activist with the PPA. “We know that there’s a Trumpist ideology that exists right here in the city of Baltimore.”The march traced a route down Maryland Avenue toward the historic Lexington Market, a hub of Baltimore’s African-American community, considered by many to be a symbol of authenticity within the city. Now, the Market is slated for gentrification, to be torn down and replaced with an outlet for corporate chains and petty-bourgeois storefronts. “Our families had been supporting Lexington Market long before the business interests were interested in downtown Baltimore,” said Witherspoon. “Even today we see that there is a food desert right here in the city of Baltimore, and they have the audacity to try to gentrify our city, but not for us. We know that they want to gentrify Baltimore City for the business interests.”The city and business interests have attempted to associate Lexington Market with violent crime and drug abuse in an effort to obscure the systemic oppression of Baltimore’s poor and working class — oppressions they share with the most vulnerable populations across the country and the world under the auspices of global capitalism.“People are out here medicating their pain of poverty,” said Lee Patterson, a member of WWP. “They’re medicating the pain of not having enough.”Gentrification is not the answer. As Rev. Witherspoon said: “They’re not building a Baltimore city for the poor. They’re building it for the corporate CEOs.”Trump & police work hand in handThe march was met with opposition from the Baltimore police, who attempted to silence the activists with fabricated concerns about permits for audio equipment. Sharon Black, a member of WWP, noted the insidious implications of this type of police behavior and the threat it poses for free expression. “Our permit is our rights,” she said, staring down the line of squad cars that trailed the march down Maryland Avenue. “When we talk about ‘Trumpist policies,’ this is what we mean. When Trump gets elected, the police terror starts.”The resilience of the demonstrators in the face of weather and police forces served as certain proof of the commitment to resistance against policies of oppression of all kinds. “It’s really very important that we be out here today, in what some may consider to be inclement weather,” Witherspoon noted. “But how many of you know that there’s inclement weather in Washington right now? And if we don’t get used to being able to weather the storm, and being able to weather the elements now, then we’ve got trouble coming on the 20th of January.”Black added: “It hasn’t hurt our spirits. It hasn’t hurt our resolve to fight Trumpism from Baltimore to Washington, D.C.”As we move into the era of Trump, community action on both local and national levels becomes more crucial than ever. “There’s not gonna be a ladder coming down from Washington,” said Witherspoon. “There’s not a ladder coming down from Annapolis [the state capital], and we’ve discovered here in Baltimore there’s not a ladder coming from City Hall.“We’re all we got, but we’re all we need.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Open letter to president and attorney general about journalist missing for six months

first_img Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority Receive email alerts Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV February 23, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to president and attorney general about journalist missing for six months The international press freedom organization Reporters Without Borders, the civil movement of journalists Stop Censorship!, the Kyiv Independent Media Trade Union, the Mediafront trade union of Ukrainian journalists and the Committee for Protection of Ukrainian Journalists would like to share with you its very deep concern about the disappearance of Vasyl Klymentyev, the editor of the Kharkiv-based regional investigative newspaper Novyy Styl, since 11 August 2010. Six months have gone by but the investigation has made very little progress and no suspect has yet been charged. On the contrary, it seems to have been marred by many irregularities. The local police are nonetheless working on the theory that Mr. Klymentyev was the victim of “premeditated murder” linked to his activities as a journalist.Shortly before his disappearance, Mr. Klymentyev had been investigating a case of alleged abuse of authority involving several local officials and had been planning to publish a story on the subject in the next issue of Novyy Styl. Accompanied by a police officer, he went to the Pechenizke reservoir near Kharkiv on 11 August to photograph properties owned by regional director of taxes Stanislav Denysyuk and three other local officials. He has not been seen since then. Only his mobile phone and keys were found a few days later in a boat adrift on the reservoir. The area was searched but nothing else was found.Former attorney general Oleksander Medvedko said on 9 September that his office would take over the case if it was confirmed that it was a murder and if a link with the police was established. Since then it has become clear that Mr. Klymentyev was almost certainly murdered. In view of the probability that local officials were involved, we urge you to assign this case to attorney general Viktor Pshonka.We fear that the lack of progress in the investigation is directly linked to the fact it is under the interior ministry’s supervision. Several incidents in the course of the investigation have led us to doubt the local police’s impartiality in this case. Firstly, we were surprised that the local prosecutor’s office immediately categorized the case as a “premeditated murder” when Mr. Klymentyev’s relatives had simply reported his “disappearance”Secondly, local police officers carried out illegal searches of the homes of Mr. Klymentyev and his lawyer without a warrant, seizing items illegally. At the same time, Mr. Klymentyev’s partner, Valentina Udovenko, was harassed by the local authorities. Finally, the police officer who accompanied Mr. Klymentyev to the reservoir – the leading witness and probably the last person to see him alive – has himself been missing since September. It seems the Kharkiv police, who are handling the investigation, are trying to slow it down if not obstruct it, and are unable to conduct it in an independent and objective manner.We therefore ask you ensure that a full and transparent investigation is finally carried out into Mr. Klymentyev’s disappearance. We above all hope that all those responsible for acts of violence against journalists are punished, a desire that you have also expressed on various occasions. The solving of this crime would represent a major advance in the fight against impunity for those who violate the rights of journalists in Ukraine.It is vital that this case should not end up like the investigation into Georgiy Gongazde’s murder. It would be extremely serious and damaging for Ukraine’s image in the eyes of international bodies and organizations if yet another journalist’s murder went unsolved.We thank you in advance for the attention you give to our request.Sincerely, Reporters Without Borders, Stop Censorship!, Kyiv Independent Media Trade Union, MediafrontTrade Union of Ukrainian journalists and the Committee for the Protection of Ukrainian Journalistsare concerned that the investigation into Novyy Styl editor Vasyl Klymentyev’s disappearancesix months ago has ground to a complete halt without anyone being charged.In an open letter to President Viktor Yanukovych and attorney general Viktor Pshonka, thesefive organizations call on the attorney general to take over the investigation and to conduct itin a thorough and transparent manner in order to ensure that it does not end up like the failedinvestigation into Georgiy Gongazde’s murder in 2000.

Millions on offer to bring Limerick back to work

first_imgTwitter Business card photo created by fanjianhua – www.freepik.comLIMERICK business owners are benefitting from a multi-million euro package of incentives to get their employees back to work as the Covid-19 restrictions are gradually relaxed.With more than €11 million a week being claimed in the city and county through temporary unemployment benefit and wage subsidies, the range of supports will be significantly enhanced next week when Government announces its July stimulus plan.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Around 2,000 Limerick employers  have registered for the Temporary Covid-19 Wage Subsidy Scheme which has been subsidising their payroll costs by an estimated €7 million a week.More than €4 million a week is being paid out  in Pandemic Unemployment Payments (PUP) to 13,000 people across Limerick city and county. Many of them are expected to return to their jobs as more local firms expand their operations over the coming weeks.The number of Limerick people in receipt of PUP is already showing a steady decline with an average of 930 people a week coming off the payment since May 5 when there were 22,300 claimants. The rate of decline has accelerated in recent weeks with 2,100 coming off the payment in Limerick last week alone.The payments have been a vital lifeline for many workers and businesses since the imposition of the Covid-19 restrictions last March and they have been backed up by a range of incentives introduced by Limerick City and County Council over recent weeks.On Tuesday, Mayor Michael Collins urged small business owners to apply for restart grants of between €2,000 and €10,000, based on their commercial rates bill from last year.  The council administered scheme was introduced to help local firms with the costs associated with reopening and reemploying workers.So far, 1,032 grants have been processed with €4.46 million in payments going direct to Limerick businesses. Average payments are €4,510 per business with Limerick City and County Council paying out the highest amount of money in the country.It is estimated that less than a third of the businesses eligible for the ReStart Grant have actually applied.Mayor Collins said that as a small business owner, he fully understood the worry and uncertainty brought about by Covid-19.“The ReStart Grant will help allay some of the costs associated with re-opening or keeping a business operational and re-connecting with employees and customers. It can be used to defray ongoing fixed costs and is available to businesses with a turnover of less than €5m and employing 50 people or fewer.The business must have suffered a loss of at least 25 per cent in revenue from April to July, and must commit to remain open or to reopen if it was closed.  It must also declare the intention to retain employees that are benefitting from the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS).
