APNU/AFC Government tolerating ‘POLITICAL TERRORISM ‘at Region Five RDC

first_imgDear Editor,The Ministry of Communities, with direct responsibility for Local Government, is failing to protect the constitutional rights of electors who voted at the last National and Regional Elections in May 2015.The Minister of Communities, who is empowered constitutionally to ensure that conditions are conducive to enable elected officials to serve and represent the people, is also empowered to ensure that no public official (REO) is hindered from serving their constituents.As such, the current impasse that exits at the Regional Democratic Council of Region Five should not have being tolerated by the Minister of Communities, Ronald Bulkhan.The non-intervention by Minister Bulkhan to sanction Regional Executive Officer Ovid Morrison is definitively because he is a member of the PNC/R, and would not be sanctioned until there is political direction from the leader of the PNC, David Granger. This was the conclusion arrived at based on President David Granger’s explanation on the ‘Broomes fiasco’ at the last press conference.The practice of employing Regional Executive Officers in the Public Service is based on political affiliation and party loyalty. It has contributed to undermining the effective functioning of a key level of regional governance, and as such, this APNU/AFC Government cannot survive.The Regional Executive Officer, according to the Public Service Act, is the chief administrative officer of the region. He/she manages the day-to-day operations and provides advice to the Regional Chairman. With competence, the REO carries out the instructions of the Regional Chairman, to the extent that the Regional Administration does not violate the applicable laws, rules or regulations.The REO of Region Five is a known political hack who was planted by the APNU/AFC coalition Government in Region Five to undermine the functioning of the RDC.The most recent violation committed by the REO was holding the illegal statutory meeting in the absence of the elected Regional Chairman and Vice-Chairman, and demanding that the RDC approve the illegal minutes of that meeting.Under the Laws of Guyana, Local Democratic Organs Act, Chapter 28:09 section 23 (1), During any period when the chairman is for any reason unable to perform the functions of his office, those functions shall be assumed and performed by the vice-chairman.In continuation of the Act, Chapter 28:09 section 23(2) states that if the vice- chairman is for any reason unable to perform the functions of the office of chairman, in accordance with section (1), the clerk shall call a meeting of the council to elect a councillor to perform those functions, and the councillor so elected shall assume and perform those functions until such time as the chairman, or vice-chairman as the case may be, is able to act.In electing a councillor to perform those functions, the Local Democratic Organs Act Chapter 28:09 must be observed, so it is stated in section 23(3) that section 20 shall, insofar as is applicable, apply to a meeting called under this section.According to the act, the important aspect of section 19 and 20 is that the elected councillors must be invited with a published notice of time and place of intended meeting, and invitation must be served at least three days before the meeting.Based on the constitution requirements, it is evident that the REO acted illegally in appointing a chairman for the RDC without adhering to the laws governing meeting in appointing a councillor to be chairman of the RDC.Minister Bulkhan is very vocal when it comes to upholding constitutional laws and democracy, but he has refused to condemn this unconstitutional behaviour coming from REO Ovid Morrison.The people of Region Five are pleading with President David Granger and the new Commissioner of Police to intervene and ensure elected officials are allowed to represent the people and discharge their duties toward their people in a favourable environment. This REO should be dismissed immediately for creating a situation of “political terrorism” at the Regional Democratic Council of Region Five.Regards,Zamal Hussainlast_img read more

The Lone Star Banner: Floating Gracefully over the Vicissitudes of History

first_imgIn my thinking thoughts, I retrospect the trend in the history of Liberia, the divisiveness wrought by the Americo-Liberian supremacy doctrine that birthed confusion, malice, wars, and the resultant gross mistrust and lack of transparency that have become ours. Despite this retrospection, my pain was soothed by the mere fact that through all the vicissitudes or changes of our history, whether it was war or peaceful assembly, political filibustering or arm twisting; whether it was corruption and squandering of the nation’s wealth, abuse of human rights or respect for rule of law, the Liberian Flag still floated gracefully and Flag Day was always the appointed day to celebrate the revered Lone Star Banner.The VicissitudesYou will agree with me that this Lone Star Banner has passed through very turbulent and tumultuous times and changes in Liberian history, and hence deserves to be celebrated more appropriately as the reverent national symbol it stands for.From the time the first dark skin President of Liberia, E. J. Roye allegedly attempted to skedaddle or run away, and drowned, to the time the Colemans resisted arrest and got killed, the Lone Star still floated gracefully. From President Barclay’sFernando Po human trafficking scandal to Tubman’s 24 years of unproductive rule; from comrade Albert Porte’s incessant advocacy to Baccus Matthew’s April 14, 1979 Rice Riot; from President Tolbert’s “Total Reliance” to Samuel Doe’s ruthless military coupe; Emmett Harmon’s tenure as Elections Commissioner to Samuel Doe’s controversial elections victory over Jackson F. Doe and Ellen Johnson’s resignation from the Senate, the Lone Star Banner still floated. From Charles Taylor’s civil war to the advent of LURD rebels, of course, the Lone Star still gracefully floated.The Lone Star Banner has floated in recent time as well. From the time President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf declared zero tolerance for corruption as public enemy number one and as bloody doggone blood sucking vampire to the collapsed of the messy education system in Liberia, the Lone Star still continues to float, and gracefully too, though.But while we were busy acclimatizing with the vicissitudes and changes of history, there was always one symbol that neither changed nor lost its identity: the Flag of Liberia, the Lone Star. I remember as a Red Cross Field Officer commuting betweenDr. Amos Sawyer’s IGNU of Liberia and Charles Taylor’s Greater Liberia, one thing I always saw unchanged was our flag, the Lone Star. Both leaders and their believers gave equal obeisance to the Lone Star, revered it equally, and saluted it with the same passion and edifications of soul although they behaved as foreigners in two different countries with two different presidents but with the same Lone Star Banner.During the time of this nonsensical divide, and the five-president government, each time the Lone Star soccer team played, we all would rise and sing with all the passions in our souls, our patriotic song, “The Lone Star Forever”, as we faced a flag, a symbol and a mantra that has never changed nor waivered in spite of our dunces and foibles, but remained majestically perched and waving gracefully like a mother on a balcony meticulously watching over her mischievous children wrestle one another over legacy. Each time the Lone Star flag was hoisted, it did not matter any longer whether one was Special Forces Commando, ULIMO-K & J, NPFL rebel, Lofa Defense Force rebel, Prince Johnson Fighter, or any of the bellicose factions as all of us stood in obeisance to our banner in one accord. What a beautiful and serene situation there was, to behold.The Lost pageantry, Pomp and ReverenceThese days, it appears like the once revered Lone Star has lost relevance. These days, attendance at Flag Day celebration programs has become voluntary and no more officially nor patriotically compulsory; the pomp and pageantry which bridled FlagDay has grossly diminished; government officials rather take a day off counting their blessings from their exploits as they lay in their comfortable couches at home, rather than attend a dull, lopsided lukewarm Flag Day program.You see, back in the day, August 24th was a memorable time for almost all Liberians including students, the military and civil servants. As a member of the St. Thomas Episcopal Boy Scouts Troop, each year I anticipated competition among fellow scouters; the best dressed and the one that demonstrated more pranks; we also watched out for how many schools missed the “eyes right salute” at the BTC or the Executive Mansion. On Flag Day, as my highly respected Tubman High school led all of the schools, we would march from the Centennial Pavilion, through principal streets up to the Executive Mansion smartly dressed. During the parade, we would pause before huge crowds to allow our special units and majorettes demonstrate all the values they embodied by the intricate dance steps, and drill maneuvers.School boys being boys, we looked forward to Flag Day because it placed into our arms, our little girlfriends whose parents never allowed them out except for school functions. Nothing could match how much we cherished the few moments shared with those young fresh lasses before they went running back home like little innocent Cinderellas, before midnight changed them to whipping pumpkins. Truly, gone may be those days, but the Lone Star banner still floats gracefully since freedom raised her glowing form on Montserrado’s verdant heights (Edwin Barclay). The Charge to keepNow fellow compatriots, take heed because we have a charge to keep and a God to glorify by our service to a nation. As we observe the 165th Flag Day this August 2015, let us introspect, and introspect well. Does the Lone Star Banner deserve such lopsided celebrations as have been over the last decades? Considering the vicissitudes of our history and the turbulent waves that this flag has braved and gracefully floated, doe she not deserve much more befitting recognition? Should we only be concerned with our personal wellbeing and place the banner, the symbol that unites us, on the back burner? From where I sit, I think it behooves us to rise up, reminisce, ponder, and decipher the message in President Barclay’s patriotic lines which he bequeathed upon us as our unifying voice. Having done so, let us rise up and celebrate the Lone Star banner the way it should. Le us therefore make it compulsory to celebrate the flag and celebrate it well. So help us God. The BenedictionNow, may you go forth with a renewed resolve to observe this historic day, not despaired nor lamenting but allowing your voices to reverberating from Lofa to Yekepa, from Cape Mount to Cape Palmas with the verses of the Patriotic song, The Lone Star Forever.When freedom raised her glowing form, on Montserrado’s verdant heightShe set within the doom of night, midst lowering skies and thunderstormsThe star of libertyAnd seizing from the waking mourn, its burnished shield of golden flamesShe set within her proud name, and roused a people longed furlong, the Star of LibertyThe Lone Star forever, the Lone Star forever,O long may it float o’er land and o’er seaDessert it, NO NEVER, uphold it foreverO shout for the Lone Star BannerAll hail!!!Having done so, may the Lord bless and keep you, may He make His face to shine upon our country; may He gave us the peace that passes all understanding especially that which the compassionate Savior Jesus gives that allays all our fears and calms all our doubts.

Thousands join rallies for immigration reform

first_img• Photo Gallery: Immigrant Workers Rights • Photo Gallery: March for immigrants • Photo Gallery: Immigration Protest Thousands of white-shirted immigrants and their supporters marched through downtown Los Angeles and near MacArthur Park on Tuesday, calling for a far-reaching immigration policy that will allow undocumented workers to keep their families together in the United States. Carrying signs, banners and American and Mexican flags, a crowd much smaller than organizers or city officials anticipated took its May Day protest for immigrant workers’ rights to City Hall. Other marches were held in cities from Phoenix to Detroit as part of a nationwide effort. The peaceful demonstrations erupted in chaos at the end of the day, when more than 200 police in riot gear began clearing protesters out of MacArthur Park. Witnesses and news reporters said that with little or no warning, police began firing rubber bullets into the crowd, which included children and families. “\ started moving in and forcing them out of the park, people with children, strollers,” said Angela Sambrano, one of the rally’s lead organizers. Police at the scene refused to comment about the incident, which lasted about 20 minutes. Fire officials said three people were taken to a nearby hospital and others were treated for minor injuries. Police estimated the day’s crowd at about 25,000, a far cry from last year, when two protests drew about 650,000 people and virtually shut down parts of L.A. Veteran Latino activist Javier Rodriguez, organizer of the downtown march, insisted the smaller numbers were insignificant to the overall national campaign of securing a path to citizenship for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in America today. “There are 600,000 women in danger of deportation with 3.3 million children, and we want those united,” he said. “We do not want those families separated by raids and deportation.” Officials attributed the decline in the number of marchers to a number of issues: Absence of threatening legislation such as last year’s ill-fated congressional bill that would have made felons of illegal immigrants; the passive roles taken this year by Spanish disc jockeys, who last year urged attendance at the marches; and warnings to students from school, city and religious leaders to stay in school – urging them to debate the issue in classrooms and not the streets. At the City Hall rally, City Councilwoman Janice Hahn commended the marchers on their passion for a most important issue affecting their lives and families. Then, impressing upon the crowd the importance of gaining citizenship and the right to vote, she said: “We’re going to elect a new president of the United States next year and `she’ may be the person to bring us together around the issue of immigration. Elections have consequences.” By midafternoon, many protesters joined a second march that had begun in the Third Street and Vermont Avenue area and moved to MacArthur Park for a late afternoon rally. “We can’t just come to rallies. We can’t just be in marches. We’ve got to call offices of Congress-people,” Cardinal Roger Mahony told thousands of protesters gathered at the park. Mahony has been an outspoken advocate of the mostly Catholic Latino immigrant community in Los Angeles. L.A. school officials reported that only a fraction of the 71,942 students who skipped classes last year missed classes Tuesday. Just 1,480 students were out Tuesday, they said. Even in smaller numbers, the marches again were a spectacle of urban politics – a gigantic peaceful demonstration amid a sea of flags and homemade signs; protesters tooted kazoos, chanted “S se puede!” and “USA!” while waving banners reading “Stop the Raids!” “Immigrants are the Backbone of America” and “We Are Americans, Too!” Among the most moving signs was one carried by 6-year-old Felicidad Torres: “I am an American. Please don’t deport mommy and daddy.” Felicidad’s father, Carlos Torres, is a construction worker who immigrated illegally to the United States from Mexico eight years ago. The next year, he met and married Felicidad’s mother, Concepci n Lara, an immigrant from El Salvador. Felicidad was born in L.A. the following year. “We pay our taxes. We contribute. We’re not on welfare,” said Lara, a maid for an American family on the Westside that gave her the day off to attend the march. “All we want \ to not live in fear \, and to one day get our legal papers, maybe even our American citizenship.” Like most of the marchers, Felicidad and her family wore white shirts and blouses to symbolize the peaceful nature of the demonstration. Last year’s marches and rallies, whipped up by nationally syndicated Spanish-language radio disc jockeys, met with some success in defusing a short-lived congressional proposal that would have made illegal entry to the country a felony.

Northern B.C. murder victim’s sister accuses fugitive’s dad of failing to take responsibility

first_imgRCMP said Wednesday they believe they’ve found the bodies of Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, of Port Alberni in dense brush in northern Manitoba following a massive manhunt that lasted close to two weeks.Police have said they’re waiting for the results of an autopsy before confirming the identities.The two men were named as suspects in the deaths of Deese and Fowler, and were charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Leonard Dyck, a university lecturer from Vancouver.Alan Schmegelsky told Australia’s “60 Minutes” TV program late last week that he won’t believe his son is a murderer until he gets facts, saying he knows how the families of the victims feel.Advertisement The sister of murder victim Chynna Deese said on Facebook that Alan Schmegelsky isn’t “cut from the same cloth” as her family and that he doesn’t acknowledge his own hand in his child’s upbringing and demise.The sister of an American tourist says the father of one of the B.C. men named as a suspect in the woman’s death isn’t accepting his share of responsibility for her family’s sorrow.Kennedy Deese, whose sister Chynna Deese was found dead along with her Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler near a highway in northern British Columbia in mid-July, posted a statement to Facebook on Saturday accusing Alan Schmegelsky of playing the victim.- Advertisement -Deese also said Schmegelsky isn’t “cut from the same cloth” as her family, and that he doesn’t acknowledge his own hand in his child’s upbringing and ultimate demise.“Your sorrow is for yourself. You cannot relate to us, as we had no doings in the cause of your pain when you’ve played a part in the cause of our pain,” Deese wrote.“To the murderers and their family, the appropriate action when mistakes are made is taking responsibility. The proper public response would have been a genuine apology. But we still forgive you and have mercy.”Advertisement “I’m so sorry for what’s happened. Whether it’s my son or whether it’s something else, we don’t know. I have just lost my son. I know exactly how you feel,” Schmegelsky told the program.“It hurts a lot. He was my only child. I’ll never get to hug him again. I’ll never get to tease him again. I’ll never get to spend a minute with him again.”“At least I know where he is. His troubles are over.”When reached via Facebook Messenger on Sunday and asked about his response to Deese’s post, Schmegelsky said she could go on “60 Minutes” and that he could arrange it.“I manned up. I have nothing to hide,” he wrote.Advertisement He did not commit to providing details of the ongoing investigation. While police were still hunting for the pair, Schmegelsky sent a 132-page book to reporters about his own life. He described it as a novelization of his son’s troubled life and his numerous encounters with police and courts and said he wanted to highlight how what he called a “broken system” shaped him and Bryer.Kennedy Deese shot back that her own family suffered challenges, but doesn’t “play the victim of a broken system.”“There is no white flag of surrender for my family. We are not defeated by divorce, mental health, violence, poverty and socioeconomic constraints, domestic disputes, alcohol or drugs, social media and bullying, feelings of loneliness, or disparities,” Deese wrote, noting that her sister rose to become the first generation of her immediate family to go to college.“We have the courage to ask for and offer help. We are strong, and stand strong together right now in the face of all of these adversities that have come upon us.”RCMP Assistant Commissioner Kevin Hackett told a news conference Wednesday that determining a motive will be “extremely difficult” if the identities are confirmed through autopsies because investigators can’t interview Schmegelsky or McLeod.Advertisementlast_img read more

DDTV VIDEO: LENNON DELIGHT AS HOOPS CLAIM SCOTTISH CUP

first_imgCeltic forgot about their disappointment at not winning the league after easily brushing aside Motherwell 3-0 to win the Scottish Cup.It’s the club’s first trophy since 2009 and Neil Lennon’s first as manager. Goals from Ki Sung-Yeung, Charlie Mulgrew and an own goal by Motherwell captain Stephen Craigon gave Celtic the silverware.“We’ve had a great season and fell short in the championship, but this is a fitting end,” said Lennon“I’m delighted for everyone associated with the club. It’s an important day. The performance today merited it.”A sensational 32nd minute strike from Ki Sung-Yeung was enhanced by Mark Wilson’s deflected shot and an inch-perfect Charlie Mulgrew free-kick five minutes from full-time to hand Lennon his first silverware in charge of Celtic. The Co Armagh man was proud to claim a trophy in his debut season, despite the disappointment of narrowly losing out on the league championship to Rangers last week.“It’s the first trophy for a few years and the players deserve it – so do the supporters,” said Lennon.“Motherwell did very well and made a great contribution to the final, but we were superb.“We were a bit too clinical at times and tried to walk the ball into the net at times.“You can’t deny the quality in the squad, and it manifested itself again today.”A turbulent season for Lennon was rounded off with the news from the club’s majority shareholder, Dermot Desmond, that a long-term contract would be forthcoming in the next few days. “I hope so,” said Lennon. “It’s a great privilege and Mr Desmond has been very good to me in my time as manager so far.“Even in my time as a player, he gave me great counsel throughout the season.“For all Celtic supporters out there, he’s a huge Celtic fan and he has the best interests of the club at heart.“He was as disappointed as anyone with the way the season ended, so I hope he’s enjoyed himself today.” Celtic’s squad were also praised by Lennon and he pledged to bolster the playing staff and maintain a free-flowing style of play next season.“We love the game, we try to entertain and we try to win with a bit of style,” said Lennon.“It doesn’t always get you over the line – but if we keep playing and strengthening the squad in a few areas, we’re not too far away from having a very good team.“We’ll sit down and look at some options and identify players – whether we get them or not is another thing.“But the players we’ve brought in are great – they’ve all made a huge contribution to the season.”DDTV VIDEO: LENNON DELIGHT AS HOOPS CLAIM SCOTTISH CUP was last modified: June 18th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
