  • Erdogan vows legal response to Charlie Hebdo cartoon showing him lifting skirt of veiled woman

    Golocal247.com news

    Anger at France deepened in Muslim-majority countries on Wednesday over a Charlie Hebdo cartoon showing Turkey’s president drinking beer while lifting the skirt of a woman wearing a hijab to reveal her naked buttocks. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president, described the cartoonists as “scoundrels” and accused the West of wanting to “relaunch the Crusades”. His office also vowed to take unspecified "legal and diplomatic actions" through the Turkish legal system. His row with France erupted after President Emmanuel Macron ordered a crackdown on Islamists this month, following the beheading of a teacher who showed his class Charlie Hebdo cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. Protesters in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu shouted: “Down with France. It insulted our prophet.”

    Months before the Trump administration separated thousands of families at the U.S.-Mexico border, a “pilot program” in Texas left child-welfare officials scrambling to find empty beds for babies taken from their parents in a preview of bigger problems to come, according to a report released Thursday by congressional Democrats. Documents in the report suggest Health and Human Services officials weren't told by the Department of Homeland Security why shelters were receiving more children taken from their parents in late 2017. It has since been revealed that DHS was operating a pilot program in El Paso, Texas, that prosecuted parents for crossing the border illegally and took their children away to HHS shelters.

  • Wisconsin expects to count absentee ballots within hours. Pennsylvania is buckling down for several days.

    Golocal247.com news

    At least one swing state may be spared the political controversy of a late absentee ballot count seemingly changing its 2020 election results.Every U.S. state is receiving a boatload more mail-in ballots than it usually does during a typical election year, and four of them — Alabama, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — won't even be able to open those ballots until Election Day. This almost guarantees a delayed result from those four states, but Wisconsin is confident it'll have everything set by the morning after the election, local election officials tell NBC News affiliate WTMJ Milwaukee.Wisconsin's electoral votes will be critical in determining the winner of the 2020 election, as the previously Democratic state went for President Trump in 2016. County clerks all say they'll count ballots nonstop until they're finished, and expect results at 9:30 p.m. at the earliest. Waukesha County, the third most populous in the state, says its count will wrap around 3 a.m. And Milwaukee County, home to nearly a million people, expects to be done by 6 a.m. Wednesday.Meanwhile in Pennsylvania, state Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D) is preparing for a long haul, including pushback from Republicans. The state accepts all absentee ballots that were mailed before Election Day even if they arrive later, meaning a count to finalize the swing state's results could take days. Shapiro fears Republicans may use these late ballots "as a hook to challenge all mail-in ballots," and a court may then halt the count of all absentee ballots while the challenge is considered, he told The Washington Post. So to prepare, Pennsylvania officials will separate late-arriving ballots in hopes of avoiding a total counting shutdown.Find when every state expects to count its absentee ballots at The New York Times.More stories from theweek.com How to make an election crisis 64 things President Trump has said about women Republicans are on the verge of a spectacular upside-down achievement

  • Row over basmati rice causes latest India and Pakistan friction

    Golocal247.com news

    Tensions are once again boiling over between India and Pakistan - only this time over basmati rice, the long-grained aromatic staple of dinners around the world. Islamabad has taken offence to New Delhi’s plans to seek permission from the European Union (EU) to export the grain as a product unique to India, known as protected geographical indication (PGI). Other products the EU currently recognises as having PGI status, described as possessing “qualities, reputation or characteristics relating to its place of origin”, include Stilton cheese and Scottish whisky. Pakistan fears that if India is able to obtain this qualification standard, it will suggest that Indian basmati rice is superior to the Pakistani equivalent and harm its exports. Currently, the EU imports two-thirds of its approximately 900,000 metric tonnes of basmati rice annually from India, although Pakistan makes up the remaining third.

  • Jeremy Corbyn Booted Out of Britain’s Labour Party

    Golocal247.com news

    LONDON—Just six months after he stepped down as Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn has been kicked out of the party as part of a lingering anti-Semitism crisis that sullied much of his leadership.It is the first time a former leader has been removed from the party since 1931, as Keir Starmer seeks to reshape the party after four years of Corbyn’s radical left-wing leadership and two successive election defeats.A report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published Thursday ruled that Labour had breached equality laws under the leadership of Corbyn, who has been accused of failing to stamp out anti-Jewish rhetoric within the left-wing, anti-Israel fringes of the party.The report by the EHRC, which has previously only been moved to investigate racism within the far-right British National Party, found that the system for dealing with incidents of anti-Semitism was inadequate under Corbyn. “It is hard not to conclude that anti-Semitism within the Labour party could have been tackled more effectively if the leadership had chosen to do so,” it said.‘Marxist, Joke, Disgrace’: How Corbyn United Britain Against HimThis stinging personal attack on Corbyn was not enough to see Corbyn thrown out of the party, but his response on Thursday morning triggered decisive action from his successor Starmer.Corbyn wrote an equivocating Facebook post in which he accepted that anti-Semitism was unacceptable, but caused anger by making the incendiary claim that its prevalence within the Labour Party had been “dramatically overstated for political reasons.”Minutes after a press conference on how he would resolve the anti-Semitism issue within the party, Starmer ordered Corbyn to retract his statement. The former leader refused to do so and was formally suspended from the party.Although he will remain a member of Parliament, Corbyn will not represent the Labour party unless he’s cleared of wrongdoing in an investigation into his conduct, which is already underway.In a furious tweeted response to his suspension, Corbyn wrote, “I will strongly contest the political intervention to suspend me. I’ve made absolutely clear those who deny there has been an antisemitism problem in the Labour Party are wrong. I will continue to support a zero tolerance policy towards all forms of racism.”Corbyn is one of Labour’s longest-serving lawmakers, having been a member of Parliament since 1983. He won a shock victory in 2015 to become Labour’s leader but announced his resignation last December after leading the party to successive general-election defeats.Although his election failures left him widely discredited in Britain’s political establishment, Corbyn remains a heroic figure for the intensely loyal and vocal left-wing of the Labour party, and his suspension is likely to ignite a civil war among the party’s factions.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

  • 'Biggest thing to happen to renters since WWII': why this US eviction expert is optimistic

    Golocal247.com news

    Matthew Desmond, author of Pulitzer prize winner Evicted, has found inspiration in how US housing activists have mobilized in response to the pandemic and economic crisisThe already acute eviction crisis in the US has been made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis, which has put 30 to 40 million Americans at risk of eviction.But one of the top eviction experts in the US, Matthew Desmond, has found inspiration and optimism in how housing activists have mobilized in response to the crisis and seen their bold policy ideas turned into policy in return.Desmond’s Pulitzer prize-winning book Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City followed eight families in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, struggling to keep their housing. In 2017, he founded the Eviction Lab, which created America’s first national eviction database.“What the pandemic did is reveal just how many American renters are living incredibly close to an eviction notice,” Desmond told the Guardian.The revelation has given way to a rapid shift in government support for social safety net policies believed to be unthinkable in the US in recent decades, such as eviction moratoriums.Some politicians have even introduced legislation to reflect the movement to cancel rent for everyone during the pandemic, which was inspired by protests and rent strikes in major cities this spring. The movement aims to also carve out a fund for independent landlords who don’t benefit from tax breaks and subsidies made available to large firms.Desmond said the cancel rent campaign, as well as tenant mobilization movements born out of the 2008 recession, are “not just trying to promote renter rights and protections, but really trying to get Americans to think hard about: is our current system built on a sandy foundation?”In September, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a moratorium on most evictions for non-payment of rent to last to the end of the year, citing public health concerns because of the Covid-19 outbreak.It followed an eviction ban Congress signed into law in late March to run through late July. Most states, and some cities, also had their own temporary eviction bans in place during this period and a few have been extended.The most recent federal moratorium has been criticized because it is being inconsistently enforced and renters will owe the back rent when the moratorium expires, but Desmond said it was “an unequivocally important thing”.“I would argue it’s the biggest thing to happen to renters since the rent freezes in World War II,” Desmond said. “It’s going to save lives, it’s a big deal.”Desmond explained how at the beginning of the pandemic, housing organizers in New York City suggested a local eviction moratorium and were laughed at and told it was impossible.“And then they did it in New York, and then North Dakota and then almost everywhere else,” Desmond said. “So to move from a place where we’re like, ‘we can’t have an eviction moratorium in a blue state or a city that has the most renting households’ to a place where the nation has one is a big move.”In some ways, the situation in the US has become so dire the country’s only option was to force change. Desmond said that the affordable housing crisis had never been as acute as it is today.Before the pandemic hit, about 3.7m evictions were filed in the US in an average year – that’s about seven evictions each minute. Most poor renting families spent at least half of their income on housing costs and about one in four of those families spent more than 70% of their income on housing costs.And when those facts collided this year with an economic recession which disproportionately affects people of color, women and low-wage workers, activists were quick to respond.Desmond said the current level of aggressive tenant mobilization echoes what happened after the Great Depression, when activism paved the way for major changes in US housing law.“That isn’t to say nothing has happened since the Great Depression, a lot has, but it was a moment of real tenant activism and action, and so what came out of that? Literally public housing and rent control came out of that,” Desmond said. “So I do think we’re seeing a real resurgence and it has deep echoes to the tenant mobilization in the 1940s.”This mobilization is also coinciding with the largest sustained protests against racial injustice in decades.In the months before those protests began, the country’s biggest demonstrations had been about rent. There was overlap between those activists and the ones who took to the streets against systemic racism after George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis.> Housing has been such a deep mechanism in America for institutionalized racism“Housing has been such a deep mechanism in America for institutionalized racism,” Desmond said, pointing to the fact that most white families in the US own their homes and most Black and Latino families don’t.“Just by that alone, which is the product of historical legacies and the systematic dispossession of people of color from the land, you have a group of folks that are just massively, disproportionately exposed to the eviction crisis,” Desmond said. “And one of the calls that kept coming up when people talked about a radical rethinking of public spending to promote public safety was housing, housing, housing.”Desmond said housing was the country’s main driver of inequality and that returning to the way things were before the pandemic would be unacceptable.“Going back to normal is like going back to a situation where the entire population of Seattle is threatened with eviction every month, that’s normal,” Desmond said. “There are reasons to be optimistic and there are places to find real inspiration, and I think that for me to see the building organization on the ground with tenant movements is a place for real inspiration. And to see many of their bold ideas turned into federal policy, I think that’s reason for inspiration – there’s also real deep reasons for concern.”

    A Japanese man has become the nation’s first cyclist to be arrested over a road rage incident since traffic laws were recently revised to curb dangerous driving. Akihiko Narushima, 33, allegedly swerved his bicycle in an erratic manner across the street obstructing vehicles, at one point directly cycling towards a woman in her 40s driving a car. His actions, in Okegawa, Saitama Prefecture, were caught on the dashboard camera of a nearby vehicle, according to local media reports. Mr Narushima, a part-time labourer, was already in custody when the arrest warrant was issued, after allegedly grabbing an elderly man who tried to reprimand him for dangerous cycling. His arrest over obstructive driving on his bicycle is reportedly the first of its kind after the Japanese government revised its Road Traffic Act in June, according to the Mainichi newspaper. The revision involved widening the scope of offences that fall into the classification of dangerous driving, so that cycling dangerously can also constitute a criminal offence. The decision to revise traffic laws came after a string of high-profile traffic fatalities, with penalties for obstructive driving include a prison term of up to three years or a fine of around £3,696 (500,000 yen). Police are planning to investigate Mr Narushima’s involvement in several dozen similar incidents in the area, where he is reportedly notorious among locals for his road rage antics, earning him the nickname “Okegawa pop-out boy”. Cycling traffic violations across the spectrum are reportedly soaring in Japan this year, as a growing number of people swap public transport for bicycles due to the pandemic. A total of 12,839 violations were reported in the first half of this year, according to National Police Agency figures released last month, with many relating to cyclists ignoring traffic lights.

  • Searchers find 59 bodies in Mexico mass graves, dig for more

    Golocal247.com news

    Search teams dug for more remains Thursday at a site in central Mexico where 59 bodies have already been found in clandestine graves over the past week in an area known as a cartel battleground. It was the largest such burial site found to date in Guanajuato, the state with the largest number of homicides in Mexico, though bigger clandestine burial sites have been excavated in other parts of the country. Especially striking about this discovery, but also a testament to the prevailing level of fear, is that the site is in the town of Salvatierra, not a desolate area out in the countryside.
