A celebration of strength and visibility: Pride in the CLE

first_imgThe trend of business-oriented LGBTQ Pride celebrations around the U.S. was overcome in Cleveland, at least for 2016. After 27 years of continuous Cleveland Pride festivals and marches, the corruption at the nonprofit Pride Cleveland was so great that the business owner who had taken it over abruptly canceled the whole event on Aug. 23, claiming vague and unsubstantiated security threats.The response of the greater community was swift and decisive. The Cleveland LGBT Community Center, along with 18 other groups and organizations, put together their own march and festival in two weeks’ time. In fact, for the first time in more than 20 years the event was called a “march” and not a parade.The focus was on responding to the bloody hate crime at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando Fla., with pride and determination, and to continue the fight for full civil rights for everyone in the LGBTQ movement. There were no shopping or FBI recruitment booths this year. There was dancing, laughing and local musicians. Of course, the organizers made nice with the Cleveland Police Department, but many participants knew that we must organize ourselves to defend ourselves and our interests.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Foley Humanitarian Award.”The Foundation Board unanimously chose to award Delphine, as she reflects Jim’s courage, commitment and compassion in her tireless work for Reporters Without Borders. She has been truly extraordinary in her efforts to help the families of kidnapped and imprisoned American journalists such as Austin Tice and Jason Rezaian, often taking her personal time to meet with and advocate for them. We are so pleased to honor both Delphine and Reporters without Borders (RSF) for their work for journalists worldwide,” wrote Diane Foley, founder and director of the foundation.“I am truly humbled by this recognition,” said Halgand. “Jim’s commitment and compassion continue to drive us everyday at RSF. We will never stop advocating for the release of journalists imprisoned or held hostage, especially Austin Tice, the last American journalist detained in Syria. Jim was one of the first to try to gather more information about Austin’s wherabouts, when Austin disappeared in August 2012 in the suburbs of Damascus. We owe it to Jim’s legacy to do everything we can to bring Austin safely home.”Delphine met James Foley when he returned home from his Libyan captivity. They worked together to raise funds for the children of Anton Hammerl, a photojournalist killed in Libya, as RSF was the fiscal sponsor of this initiative in 2012. Since September 2012, RSF has been assisting and advising the family of Austin Tice, putting together the #FreeAustinTice campaign in February 2015 and mobilizing more than 260 U.S. news websites to raise awareness about the missing American journalist. She will continue to fight tirelessly until he is brought home. RSF has been working for decades all over the world with the families, employers, and governments of journalists missing, imprisoned or held hostage to provide on-the-ground information and contacts, media strategy advice, platforms for the support committees and any logistic assistance needed according to each specific case.RSF has become the largest press freedom organization around the world with more than 30 years of accomplishments. Thanks to its unique global network of 150 local correspondents investigating in 130 countries, 12 national offices, and a consultative status at the UN and UNESCO, RSF is able to have a global impact, gather on-the-ground information, conduct major advocacy campaigns, and assist and defend news providers all across the world.From the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation:Second annual James W. Foley Freedom Awards to recognize Delphine Halgand, Emma Beals and Arwa DamonDOVER, N.H. — The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation announced Tuesday its 2017 honorees, three extraordinary journalists: Delphine Halgand, the U.S. Director of Reporters without Borders; Emma Beals, co-founder of the Frontline Freelance Register; and CNN Senior International Correspondent Arwa Damon.At its second annual James W. Foley Freedom Awards dinner at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on May 1st, 2017, the Foley Foundation will honor Halgand, Beals, and Damon for walking in the footsteps of the courageous conflict journalists and advocating for press freedom and journalists around the world.Diane Foley launched the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation in 2014 following the murder of her son, American conflict reporter James W. Foley, in Syria the same year. Foley said of this year’s honorees: “These three young women continue Jim’s legacy of courageous commitment to bearing witness, reporting the truth on the ground around the world, and compassionate advocacy for those suffering amid conflict worldwide.”Halgand, U.S. Director of Reporters without Borders, will receive the James W. Foley American Hostage Freedom award.“When our U.S. government did not know how to help Americans held hostage abroad, or their families, Delphine and the distinguished David Bradley (2016 American Hostage Freedom award winner) went above and beyond to help us. They both continue to help the frantic American families who currently have loved ones held abroad, like the parents of Austin Tice and returning American hostages like The Washington Post’s Jason Rezaian. Though a French citizen, Delphine has cared to reach out to American families and advocate for their loved ones’ return, on top of her demanding job with Reporters without Borders, where she works tirelessly to promote press freedom every day.”Of Beals and Damon, Foley said: “Emma Beals, an independent conflict journalist, and Arwa Damon, a seasoned staff conflict journalist at CNN, are truth seekers like Jim. They both risk their lives to bring us authentic images and stories from conflict zones. They have witnessed much of the suffering imposed on civilians amid the world’s conflicts, and the toll on fellow journalists and humanitarian workers who have dared to care.”Beals will receive the 2017 James W. Foley World Press Freedom award for her work to launch the Frontline Freelance Register and, most recently, the international Alliance for a Culture of Safety to protect fellow independent conflict journalists. Last year’s winner was David Rohde of Thomson Reuters.Arwa Damon, CNN senior international correspondent for the past 10 years, was so deeply moved by the many children suffering in conflict zones, unable to access the health care they needed, that in 2015, she founded a nonprofit called INARA. Its mission is to help children with serious injuries sustained in conflict access the complex medical care they need. For her compassionate advocacy on behalf of these children, Damon will receive the 2017 James W. Foley Humanitarian Award. Her heroic work reflects that of the 2016 James W. Foley Humanitarian awardee, Nadia Alawa.The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation continues Jim’s legacy by supporting work in three key areas: American hostage advocacy and hostage policy research, the protection of independent conflict journalists and the education of the public and university students on these silent crises.“In America, we are so blessed by the freedoms we enjoy,” Diane Foley said. “The best journalists are the truth seekers who show us what is really happening in our own country, and around the world. They protect our American freedom by shining a light on issues critical to maintaining our democracy.“I welcome our new president and urge him to make the return of brave Americans like Austin Tice, Caitlan Coleman, Paul Overby, Robert Levinson, and our many unknown citizens a true national priority for our government. I also implore you, President Trump, to recognize the powerful contribution that our best American journalists make to our wonderful democracy.”NOTES FOR EDITORS: James Foley and the Legacy FoundationJames W.

The bench of Justice Prathiba M. Singh closed the petition while binding the Central and the State Governments to the submissions made by them. The Government of India had informed the Court that it has taken steps for creation of a National Database for Unorganized Workers, under the monitoring of the Supreme Court in Shramjeevi Mahila Samiti v. State of NCT of Delhi & Ors. “Since the creation of a database is presently being supervised by the Supreme Court, no further orders are required to be passed in this matter,” the High Court said. The Directorate General Labour Welfare further informed the Court, “The budget is being prepared and the same has to be confirmed/approved by the EFC, Ministry of Finance. Upon approval, steps will be taken to create the database within 6 months.” Taking this submission on record, the bench directed the Government to create the database “expeditiously”. On a perusal of the Concept Note of the database portal the bench observed, “Creation of a portal with the above features would bring all unorganised and migrant labour under a single umbrella so that benefits which are meant for them can suitably be provided and in case of any crisis, details are available with the authorities.” The Petitioner had sought implementation of the Inter-State Migrant Workmen (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1979 in Delhi to streamline the workforce and their conditions of service. Notices were issued on the petition last month and the High Court had also expressed that there was a “dire need” for creating a mechanism for registration of migrant workers. ‘There’s A Dire Need For Creating Mechanism For Registration Of Migrant Workers In Delhi’: Delhi HC Responding to the petition, the Delhi Government informed the Court it had designated a Special Nodal Officer to entertain complaints from Migrant Workers during lockdown. “More than 710 complaints were received from the Migrant Workers in respect of non-payment of wages, out of which 85% have been resolved after Government intervention. Insofar as termination of the Migrant Workers is concerned, assistance was provided to workers free of cost and a `Shramik’ helpline was also created for this purpose. Rs.10,000/- has been disbursed to more than 36,000 Migrant Workers, who have availed of the various schemes of the Delhi Government,” Addl. Secretary to the Delhi Labour Department told the Court. In view of these submissions, the High Court disposed of the petition with liberty to the Petitioner to take apposite legal recourse for any outstanding grievances.

Acting per the Supreme Court’s ruling in Safai Karamchari Andolan and Others v. Union of India and Others, a Division Bench comprising Chief Justice S Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chaly instructed the Kerala Water Authority, the Labour Department, Water Resources Department, Local Self Government Department and Chief Secretary to the Government, respondents to disburse the sum within a period of two months of receipt of a copy of the judgment. Ordering thus, the Bench remarked, “Let the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court be honoured by the abovesaid respondents, in letter and spirit, without giving room, for further litigation.” The Court was acting on a petition dating back to 2014, filed by noted “activist lawyer” Basil Attipetty. His petition sought compensation for Raju and Mayavu, who died inside a manhole in a sewerage pipeline operated by the Kerala Water Authority (KWA). The petition stated that when the employees were engaged in manhole of sewerage pipelines, adequate and necessary safeguards ought to have been taken by the Water Authority officials, so as to avoid any accident. Grounding its contentions on Delhi Jal Board v. National Campaign for Dignity and Rights of Sewerage and Allied Workers & Others, the petition asserted that the KWA’s engagement of workmen without providing adequate safety gear and oxygen masks led to the death of the workmen. Additionally, the Police and Fire and Rescue service personnel did not have the necessary required tools, to rescue the poor workmen, the petition had averred. Accordingly, the petitioner had sought the payment of An ex gratia amount of Rs 5 Lakh to bereaved family membersAmount of Rs 25 lakhRs 2 Lakh each to family members to meet immediate expenses from Chief Minister’s Relief Fund In addition to these, the petitioner also prayed for directions to the Chief Secretary as well as the Cochin Corporation to set-up night shelters to migrant workers throughout Kerala. The High Court, when disposing the petition extracted portions of the Supreme Court’s decision in Safai Karamchari Andolan and Others v. Union of India (UOI) and Others where the Supreme Court was faced with deciding how to strictly enforce the implementation of the Employment of Manual Scavengers and Construction of Dry Latrines (Prohibition) Act, 1993 The High Court pointed out that the Supreme Court in the said decision had directed the Union of India/State Government/Union Territories, to identify families of all persons who died while doing sewerage work (in manholes, septic tanks) since 1993 and award a compensation of Rs.10 lakhs, for each such death to the family members depending on them. “The Hon’ble Apex Court has also directed that rehabilitation must be based on the principles of justice and transformation” the High Court noted. While accepting the contractor’s submission that the wives of Raju and Mayavu had respectively been compensated with an amount of Rs.4,00,000/- each, the Court highlighted that the reliefs as per Safai Karamchari was as against the Central and State Governments. Rejecting the submission by the KWA that there was nothing to indicate in the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court that compensation has to be paid by the Kerala Water Authority or the State Government, the Court ordered the sum of Rs 10 lakh to be disbursed to families of deceased manhole workers by the State Government. The Court ruled “Therefore, notwithstanding payments already made by the contractor, by virtue of the judgment of the Hon’ble Apex Court in Safai Karamchari Andolan’s case, Government of Kerala represented by the Secretary to the Government is bound to pay compensation of Rs.10,00,000/- each, to the family members of the persons, who died in sewerage work (manholes, septic tanks)” Directing the matter to be listed after two months to assess the extent of compliance, the matter was disposed. The case was one of many filed by petitioner, Advocate Basil Attippetty, who passed away in 2015. The lawyer was well-known in for arguing several public causes before the Kerala High Court, notable among which were his challenge to the National Judicial Appointments Commission, a PIL seeking a directive to the state to formulate steps to make better the living conditions of third gender persons in line with the Supreme Court’s NALSA judgment. The PIL disposed of recently was among the last filed by the lawyer before his decease in 2015. Advocate KP Pradeep was appointed to assist the Court after Advocate Attipetty’s demise. Senior Government Pleader Tek Chand, Standing Counsel Benjamin Paul, Millu Dandapani and Advocate Saji Varghese Kakkattumattathil, represented the various state respondents.Click here to download the judgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

‘Unfortunate’ circumstances claim two horses at ag academy

But, when the horse got down again, the veterinarian said there was nothing he could do for it and he put it down.”The privately owned horse that died over the weekend had been under the care of a veterinarian for about three weeks.“The horse was in the Christmas parade at Goshen but then it got sick. It would eat very little and lost weight and continued to lose weight,” Bazzell said.“The horse was fed during the weekend and, when the student went to feed it Monday morning, it was down and dead. An autopsy is being done to see what caused its death.”Bazzell said it was unfortunate that two horses that were boarded at the Ag Academy died and so closely together.“But one was a rescue horse that came here in really bad shape and the other just got sick,” he said. “Things like that happen. It’s unfortunate but it happens.”Bazzell said the Ag Academy does not own horses but students are allowed to board their horses at the facility at no charge.“The students are responsible for the feeding and care of their horses and they are responsible young people,” he said. “We just had bad luck and lost two horses in a month.”center_img Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
