New York CityA New York State budget that underfunds education was denounced as racist austerity by union members and allies at an April 27 rally and march in Manhattan.The Professional Staff Congress-CUNY rallies, with president Barbara Bowman on the bullhorn, New York City, April 27. WW Photo: G.DunkelAttending were over 150 members of the Professional Staff Congress of City University of New York, members of DC37 working at CUNY and members of NYC for Change. DC37, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), is New York City’s largest public employee union.The PSC of CUNY is American Federation of Teachers Local 2334 and represents 25,000 teachers, both full and adjunct, along with professional staff like CUNY librarians. CUNY’s budget is mainly supported by New York State.In the opinion of Barbara Bowen, president of the PSC — as well as the people who attended this protest — the 2021-2022 austerity budget developed by Governor Cuomo and fully endorsed by CUNY’s administration is out-and-out racism, since 70% of CUNY students are Black or Latinx.PSC members and their allies fought in the state legislature for a budget that rejected all cuts proposed by Cuomo and increased funding for CUNY colleges through reforms to close the TAP (Tuition Assistance Program) Gap and expand opportunity programs.They won! The CUNY budget has been stabilized. The CUNY administration has no more excuses for maintaining the austerity measures forced on teachers and staff in 2020.CUNY colleges have been allocated $1.5 billion in federal stimulus funds, $891 million of which is available for institutional use. Another $634 million has been allocated to CUNY for direct student aid. Yet while CUNY has distributed $118 million in student aid, the three recent quarterly reports on the CUNY Budget and Finance website disclose a total of only $51 million of stimulus funds spent so far on institutional expenses.It’s past time to #FreeTheFunds and use the stimulus money as intended to protect the quality of a CUNY education and the livelihood and safety of CUNY workers.PSC members are demanding CUNY use the federal money now: Speed up payment of the 2% raise for teachers and staff; rehire all adjuncts laid off in 2020; unfreeze job searches; restore limits to class size; and invest in protecting the health and safety of the CUNY community on campus.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

RSF_en News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Robert MénardSecretary-General Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh to go further AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia Paris, 4 December 2006Dear Mr. President, Reporters Without Borders, an organisation that defends press freedom worldwide, would like to express to you its deep concern about the recent deterioration in press freedom in your country.You said in a recent interview on state television that “no one should doubt freedom of expression and press freedom in Azerbaijan.” Unfortunately, the crackdown on independent journalists and media which began in October and which has taken a dramatic turn since 24 November forces us to question what you said.The newspaper Azadlig was under constant threat of eviction from its premises from October onwards. The threat was carried out on 24 November on the decision of the Baku economic court. Azadlig, the news agency Turan and the newspaper Bizim Yol were evicted and told to move to new premises assigned to them by the government. On arriving at the new premises, they found they were already occupied. The work of these media has been seriously disrupted, especially as part of their equipment and archives were damaged or lost in the move.The National Television and Radio Council announced on 24 November that it was withdrawing the licence of ANS, the leading independent TV station. ANS stopped broadcasting the same day. As the BBC, RFE/RL and Voice of America were retransmitted on ANS’s channels, the withdrawal of the licence meant these radio stations have also been silenced.The independent, opposition and foreign media are being systematically targeted by these repressive measures, which show that the Azeri authorities are taking a harder line on free expression and press freedom despite the appeals from press freedom organisations, and representatives of the European Union, the OSCE and the United States.Mr. President, we call on you to intervene to ensure that the press freedom is respected in Azerbaijan. We would also like to inform of our intention to follow the situation closely and to help Azerbaijan’s independent media. We are particularly conscious of the danger that these restrictions could affect the 2008 presidential election.We trust you will give this matter your careful consideration.Sincerely, June 4, 2021 Find out more December 4, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to Ilham Aliev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Receive email alerts Follow the news on Azerbaijan Help by sharing this information News June 8, 2021 Find out more AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News News Organisation April 9, 2021 Find out more

The Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav was hearing the bail application of one Tabassum, who argued that she had been falsely implicated in the instant matter by the investigating agency and that she was not present at the scene of crime (SOC) on the date and time of incident. Facts of the Case The FIR in the matter was registered on the statement of Constable Sunil Kumar. As per the FIR, on 24th February 2020, the Protest was peacefully going on at the service road (Wazirabad) but at around 1.00 PM, protesters carrying danda/lathies, baseball bat, iron rod and stones started gathering at the main road. The FIR alleges that though senior officers tried to stop them and asked to return at service road, but the protestors did not pay any heed to their directions and became violent. The gathering got uncontrolled and started pelting stones on the police on duty. Protesters were raising slogans against the said Bill as well as Government of India. It has been stated in the FIR after repeated warning and finding no alternative, mild force and gas shells were used to disperse the crowd. Violent protesters started beating people as well as police personnel, due to which he (Constable Sunil) sustained injury on his right elbow and hand and protesters also attacked upon DCP Shahdara, ACP Gokulpuri, and HC Rattan Lal due to which they fell on the road and sustained grievous injuries and started bleeding. All the injured persons were taken to hospital, where it was found that HC Rattan Lal had already died due to injuries sustained and DCP Shahdara was unconscious and had sustained head injuries. Arguments put forth Applicant’s Counsel argued that she did participate in the protest, however, it was reiterated that protesting against some legislation is a “legal and fundamental right” of the applicant and the same cannot be snatched away from her. On the other hand, the State argued that the applicant (Tabassum) used to share stage with other protestor(s) and instigate the gathering against the Government of India which ultimately led to violence on 24th February 2020, thereby resulting in death of more than 50 people in North-East District of Delhi, including HC Rattan Lal. Court’s observations Having perused the statements of a number of witnesses recorded in the matter as well as relevant CCTV footages, the Court prima facie found that on 24th February 2020, from at around 11.00 AM onwards there was some kind of buzz around and the persons of a particular community were clearly seen charged up. “They were making very aggressive movement towards SOC, having weapons in their hands. Several persons can be seen exhorting the crowd in aggressive over tone. It is also evident that they formed a mob which proceeded towards SOC, may be under some plan or incitement”, observed the Court Importantly, the Court noted, “It is clearly evident that the protestors and organizers had motivated persons in the mob and certain unscrupulous elements had surrounded the scene of crime and they appeared to be fully equipped with rioting material like stones, sticks, sharp-edged weapons and other sort of raw weapons.” Noting that everything was being done under a well-hatched conspiracy, The Court further remarked, “Even burqa-clad women are clearly seen attacking the police party with sticks and other material in their hands and they clearly appeared to be charged up. It has also come on record that some of the persons of the mob had taken possession of the rooftops of highrise buildings at or around 25 feet road, having firearms and other rioting material with them.” Regarding the case of the Applicant, the Court observed that in certain snapshots of the spot/SOC, the applicant was clearly visible and that she was categorically identified by independent public witness in their statements. The Court also noted that her CDR details show that she had made as many as 15 calls to co-accused Shadab between the period 25th January 2020 till 24th February 2020 and from the said CDR record, it was quite apparent that the applicant has been constantly moving from one point to another point at the protest site/SOC, “meaning thereby that she was quite active at that time.” Denying her the benefit of bail, the Court said, “This Court cannot lose sight of the fact that applicant did not cooperate in the investigation right from the day her name cropped in the matter and instead absconded in the matter and the investigating agency was compelled to take coercive measures against her.” Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Jeff Swensen/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) — The man who allegedly opened fire on worshippers at a Pittsburgh synagogue in what is likely the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in U.S. history acted alone, authorities said.Eleven people were killed and six more were injured, including four police officers, when authorities say the suspect opened fire at the Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha congregation in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. An assault rifle and three handguns were found on the suspect, Bob Jones, FBI Pittsburgh special agent in charge, said during a press conference Saturday afternoon.The suspect has been identified Robert Bowers, who is 46 years old. Bowers has several firearms and hunting licenses registered in his name and has addresses in the Pittsburgh area.“This is the most horrific crime scene I’ve ever seen,” Jones said.“The suspect’s full motive is unknown but we believe he was acting alone,” Jones added.The Anti-Defamation League condemned the attack in a statement, saying it was “unconscionable for Jews to be targeted during worship on a Sabbath morning.”“This is the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States,” the ADL said in a statement.The suspect is in fair condition with multiple gunshot wounds at a local hospital after being taken into custody, Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich told reporters during the press conference Saturday afternoon.At 9:54 a.m. Saturday, police received reports of an active shooter at Tree of Life, where a service was taking place, Hissrich said.There was also a morning Shabbat service scheduled from 9:45 a.m. to noon, according to the synagogue’s website.After entering the church, Bowers allegedly killed at least 11 people, Jones said, and exchanged fire with officers, some of whom were injured. Bowers was also shot.He was taken into custody and brought to the hospital, Hissrich said.Bowers had not been charged as of Saturday afternoon.Law enforcement is looking closely at a social media account believed to be linked to the suspect. A counterterrorism official briefed on the probe says they are looking at Bowers’ social media profiles, looking at what he allegedly posted and his conversations.Since the incident happened at a synagogue, it is being treated as a federal hate crime and will be handled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with the assistance of local, county and state police, he added.Upon arriving in Indiana for a speech before the Future Farmers of America, President Donald Trump called the attack an “anti-Semitic crime.”“This wicked act of mass murder is pure evil, hard to believe, and frankly something that is unimaginable,” Trump said at the start of the event. “Our nation and the world are shocked and stunned by the grief. This was an anti-Semitic act. You wouldn’t think this would be possible in this day and age but we don’t seem to learn from the past.”“The vile, hate-filled poison of anti-Semitism must be condemned anywhere and everywhere it appears,” he added.Speaking to reporters before boarding his flight to Indiana earlier in the day, Trump called the suspected shooter “a wacko” and a “maniac.” He also said the suspect should “pay the ultimate price” and be subjected to the death penalty.
