Missing for decades Inquiry hears how Vancouvers MMIWG issue fell on deaf

first_imgKathleen Martens APTN NewsSome say the tragic death of Tina Fontaine helped spark the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.But well before the Manitoba teenager’s short life, the groundwork was being laid on the mean streets of Vancouver.“To go into areas where I say, ‘Is where even angels fear to tread,’” said veteran local MMIWG advocate Bernie Williams.It was the murders of her mother and three sisters in the notorious Downtown Eastside – a poor neighbourhood home to many Indigenous people living off reserve – that prompted Williams to join the cause she is still fighting for.“Women were going missing back in the late 1970s when it fell on deaf ears,” she said as the inquiry kicked off five days of hearings in the suburb of Richmond. “It took a long hard fight.”There has been a lot of blood and tears shed, Williams said, to get the country to pay attention to why so much violence is directed at Indigenous women.And the goal wouldn’t have been realized without the work of local activists and leaders like Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, former national chief of the Assembly of First Nations Shawn Atleo, now-federal Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, and friend and mentor Gladys Radek, she added.“They opened the doors for us to come through,” said Williams. “Then the movement started to move.”With Radek and Phillip looking on, Williams addressed the opening day crowd. She admitted it was a bittersweet homecoming that caused her a few sleepless nights.After all, for all their success in raising awareness, the West Coast still has a sad record of dealing with crimes again Indigenous women, including the botched police investigation into serial killer Robert Pickton.“(Wally) Oppal was a nice man,” said Jamie Lee Hamilton, a transgender activist who was among the first witnesses Wednesday.Oppal, a former B.C. judge and attorney general, presided over the post-Pickton Missing Women Commission of Inquiry in 2012. He produced 65 recommendations to counter what he called “systemic bias” by police towards missing Indigenous women.But Hamilton, who was an expert witness at the Oppal inquiry, said many of Oppal’s recommendations remain unfulfilled. Even though she said the bias still exists.“Women and girls and young men in the sex trade won’t turn to the police…there’s lack of trust.”Hamilton, who said she was born to a First Nation woman and Irish father, clutched an eagle feather as she testified before Commissioner Marion Buller. She said police harassed her for sex when she worked the street and one on-duty officer took it by force, abandoning her in a park to walk home in the middle of the night.She said she was threatened with arrest if she didn’t comply and alleged police officers continue to extort sexual favours from others this way.kmartens@aptn.calast_img read more

Youth changing the sense of urgency as millions march in growing climate

first_imgJustin BrakeAPTN NewsMillions of people in more than 150 countries around the world rallied in the streets Friday as part of the growing youth-led climate strike movement.In New York City an estimated 60,000 people marched through Manhattan to demand climate action from U.S. President Donald Trump and other world leaders.Students and climate activists also held protests in cities across Canada as part of the #FridaysForFuture movement started by 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg last year.Thunberg says political leaders are not acting to reduce carbon emissions despite cries from the world’s leading climate scientists, who warn in a 2018 International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report that the world must cut global emissions in half by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 to avoid catastrophic climate change.Indigenous peoples are disproportionately impacted by climate change, contributing little to the crisis while bearing much of its consequences.Life in the north is rapidly changing for Inuit.“If the world carries on emitting [greenhouse gases] at current rates, it is projected Inuit will experience an average winter temperature increase of well over 10 degrees Celcius leading to an unimaginably stark climate reality for my children and future grandchildren,” Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) President Natan Obed writes in ITK’s National Inuit Climate Strategy.More frequent and more intense extreme weather is also threatening ecosystems and ways of life for First Nations and Metis communities in Canada.Earlier this month Assembly of First Nations (AFN) National Chief Perry Bellegarde said addressing the climate emergency is a top priority for First Nations heading into next month’s federal election. In July the AFN passed a resolution declaring a climate emergency.Indigenous peoples are also on the front lines to address the climate crisis, and must now unite with the fledging student and youth movement sweeping across the globe, says a prominent Diné climate activist.Janene Yazzie, a sustainable development program coordinator for the International Indian Treaty Council, told APTN News at Friday’s march in New York that the student strikes—which see students in dozens of countries skipping classes on Fridays to send a message to decision-makers—that youth are “changing the sense of urgency around the conversation.”She said youth are “getting the message across very clearly that [they] aren’t going to sit by anymore.”Eriel Deranger of Indigenous Climate Action traveled from Alberta to New York to participate in events being held around the United Nations Climate Action Summit this week.She said Friday’s global climate marches represent “one of the most significant moments that we’ve seen” on climate action. “It’s not just environmentalists, it’s not just climate activists, it’s not just Indigenous people,” she said. “But it’s young people, it’s old people, it’s the labour movement, it’s migrant justice, it’s human rights, LGBTQI — it is all people around the world rising up together to say that something needs to happen, we need to…fundamentally shift what we’ve been doing the last 500 years since colonization started.”Deranger, who hails from Athabasca Chipweyan First Nation in the oil sands region of Alberta, said thinking around climate change is often restricted by popular but narrow concepts of both the nature of climate change and its potential solutions.She said decision-makers are operating within those parameters and not developing solutions that meet the scientific targets or the advice of Indigenous elders.“I think what’s happening with a lot of political leaders, not just the leaders in Canada, is that we are seeing really tiny marginal steps. They’re trying to exaggerate their action on climate. The reality is Canada does not have ambitious climate targets,” she said.“What we’re seeing is that countries, particularly G7 countries like Canada, are not doing their part in addressing the climate crisis. We have a responsibility as leading nations to not just reduce our emissions but to address the injustices that are coming from the climate crisis and the things that drove us to this, which is extraction, oil and gas development and big agribusinesses.”Yazzie said Indigenous peoples’ perspectives on the climate crisis must be valued and included in any meaningful action. Between 100,000 and 250,000 people marched in New York Friday, according to estimates from various media outlets.Many were there to hear Thunberg’s simple message that is resonating across the globe.“Nowhere have I found anyone in power who dares to tell it like it is,” she said.“We have not taken to the streets, sacrificing our education for the adults and politicians to take selfies with us and to tell us that they really, really admire what we do. We are doing this to wake the leaders up. We are doing this to get them to act. We deserve a safe future. And we demand a safe future. Is that really too much to ask?”Thunberg has been attacked for her message, including by right-wing politicians and pundits in Canada.But she said Friday she is not deterred.“If you belong to that small group of people who feel threatened by us, then we have some very bad news for you,” she said to cheers.“Because this is only the beginning.”Monday’s climate action summit at the U.N. headquarters in New York will be preceded by a youth climate summit Saturday.APTN will continue its climate change coverage over the weekend and in the lead-up to Canada’s federal election in October.Thunberg said when world leaders meet Monday, “the eyes of the world will be on them.”A follow-up global climate strike is planned for Sept. 27, when Thunberg will join students and activists in Montreal to deliver her message in Canada.jbrake@aptn.ca@justinbrakenewscenter_img “Indigenous peoples have been on the forefront of experiencing climate change impacts since colonization — and witnessing for generations what overconsumption and unsustainable development has done to our lands, to our communities,” she said.“And I think we bring a perspective that is rooted in anti-colonialism and in anti-capitalism that is necessary to inform what meaningful action looks like.Author and activist Bill McKibben, who founded grassroots climate action group 350.org, told APTN Friday that policy-makers and society need to embrace Indigenous knowledge as much as contemporary science.“If people paid some attention to the oldest wisdom traditions on this planet, then we have a fighting chance,” he said.“We’re actually at a powerful moment because the oldest wisdom traditions and the newest ones are kind of meshing. The vision that comes out of the sweat lodge, and the vision that comes out of the super computer and the satellite, are telling us pretty much the same thing. And what they’re telling us is, what the thing that everyone else believes—that we’re just going to keep growing and getting more stuff or whatever—is nonsense.”last_img read more

Ban denounces appalling atrocities by Ugandan rebels in DR Congo

The UN Mission in the DRC, known by its French acronym MONUC, said an increasingly high number of civilians had been killed by LRA rebels fleeing a joint military operation by the DRC, Uganda and Southern Sudan in the far north-east of the DRC, although it was not possible to give an exact figure due to the remoteness and lack of communications in the region.But local and humanitarian officials said nearly 200 people had been killed during the Christmas period alone. The rebels, who have been fighting Ugandan forces since the 1980s and have since spilled over into Sudan and DRC, are notorious for human rights abuses including the killing and maiming of civilians, and the abduction and recruitment of children as soldiers and sex slaves. In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Mr. Ban called on the Ugandan, DRC and southern Sudanese forces on the ground to coordinate with the humanitarian community and UN missions in the region to ensure the effective delivery of aid to those affected by the LRA attacks. As it did last week, MONUC stressed that it would do all in its power to ensure the protection of civilians, especially by providing essential support to the Government army. The Mission has already flown in more than 260 Government troop reinforcements and will provide logistical support for them, including food, water, medicines, fuel and medical evacuation. Mr. Ban’s Deputy Special Representative for the DRC Leila Zerrougui today met with the country’s National Security Council to discuss the Government’s needs. “She informed them of MONUC’s willingness to do everything in its power to support the Government’s efforts to face the situation,” the Mission said in a statement.MONUC is also supplying logistical support, including trucks, to UN humanitarian agencies and non-governmental organizations to distribute aid to the Haut Uélé region where the LRA carried out simultaneous attacks in several localities, including Faradje, Doruma and Gurba.A report from humanitarian workers in Dungu indicated that several officials were killed in Faradje, including the chief doctor two priests, a school inspector and a pharmacist, 20 children were abducted, and 120 houses torched. The assailants looted several shops and houses, including a hospital. Faradje’s 30,000 residents were forced to flee, and the majority took refuge in Tadu, 37 kilometres away, and Kpodo, 11kilometres away. According to the same source, the LRA have occupied seven villages in the surrounding territory of Doruma: Batande, Manzagala, Mabando, Bagbugu, Nakatilikpa, Nagengwa and Natulugbu. 30 December 2008United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today strongly condemned the “appalling atrocities” reportedly committed by the Ugandan rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and southern Sudan, and demanded that they respect all rules of international humanitarian law. read more

Deputy SecretaryGeneral Malloch Brown visits Baghdad for talks on new compact

Deputy United Nations Secretary-General Mark Malloch Brown today conferred with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad on a new partnership with the international community, the proposed International Compact for Iraq aimed at consolidating peace and pursuing political, economic and social development over the next 5 years. Mr. Malloch Brown, who arrived in Baghdad yesterday at the Government’s invitation, met with President Jalal Talibani, Vice Presidents Adel Abdel Mahdi and Tariq Al-Hashimi, Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki, Deputy Prime Minister Barham Salih, and a host of key Iraqi political leaders and members of the international donor community. The primary focus of the Compact will be to build a framework for Iraq’s economic transformation and integration into the regional and global economy. Discussions focused on the Government’s setting up of a Preparatory Group, which it will co-chair with the UN, to help with preparations for the Compact with strong support from the World Bank in coordination with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other regional financial institutions. It will include key members of the international donor community. The Preparatory group will report directly to Deputy Prime Minister Barham Saleh and the Mr. Malloch Brown. “The Government of Iraq regards the international compact as a critical process for the country’s future development,” the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) said in a statement. “The Compact will build on the achievements of the Iraqi people and provide an opportunity to develop a broader international consensus of support and engagement with Iraq to bring about its economic transformation and realize its best economic potential for the sake, wellbeing and prosperity of the Iraqi people.” read more

(TSX:OSK) says the costs of mining projects have gone up significantly and it would be difficult to find investors.Sean Roosen said after a speech to the Canadian Club on Monday that capital costs have skyrocketed and the environmental burden has increased due to higher expectations.Osisko’s Canadian Malartic operation in northwestern Quebec is one of Canada’s largest gold mines.Exploration drilling for Canadian Malartic began in 2005 and commercial production started in May 2011.Roosen also said recent attempts in Quebec to revise the mining law have created regulatory uncertainty, particularly amid the difficult market.He also said Osisko’s tax burden has gone up 33 per cent since the company financed its massive open-pit mine in the city of Malartic.The instability has made it difficult for companies to achieve good financing conditions, he added. read more

Panoramics Savannah nickelcoppercobalt project rises again

first_imgThe first shipment of bulk nickel-copper-cobalt concentrate from Panoramic Resources’ recently recommissioned Savannah project, in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, has departed Wyndham bound for Lianyungang, China, the company says.The MV Heemskerkgracht (pictured) departed with 7,735 t (wet) of concentrate on-board, with a preliminary invoice value of approximately A$ 8.6 million ($6.1 million), Panoramic reported.Panoramic’s Managing Director, Peter Harold, said: “It is wonderful to see Savannah concentrate being shipped again from Wyndham. This is a significant milestone in the recommissioning of the mine and processing plant at Savannah and I would like to thank the team at Savannah for their efforts to get the project going again.”Panoramic successfully commissioned the $65 million Savannah project in late 2004 and then, in 2005, purchased and restarted the Lanfranchi nickel project, near Kambalda. In its 2014 financial year, the company produced a record 22,256 t of contained nickel and produced 19,301 t contained nickel in the year after.The Lanfranchi and Savannah projects were placed on care and maintenance in November 2015 and May 2016, respectively, pending a sustained recovery in the nickel price.After delivering an updated feasibility study on Savannah in October 2017, securing an offtake customer and putting in place project financing in July 2018, the company made the decision to restart operations at Savannah. The Lanfranchi project was sold, in December 2018, for a total cash consideration of A$15.1 million, providing additional financial support for the reopening of the Savannah project.Savannah is expected to ramp up to full production over 15 months to a forecast life of mine average annual production rate of 10,800 t of nickel, 6,100 t of copper and 800 t of cobalt metal contained in concentrate.last_img read more

Greek economy to grow 01 per cent in 2015

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Greek economy is expected to grow by 0.1 per cent this year and by 2.3 per cent in 2016, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) said in its semi-annual Economic Outlook report.The unemployment rate is projected to drop to 25.7 per cent of the workforce this year and to 24.7 per cent in 2016, from 26.5 per cent in 2014, while the inflation rate will remain in negative territory in 2015 (-1.4 per cent) before rising to 0.3 per cent in 2016. The country’s fiscal deficit is projected to drop to 3.4 per cent of GDP this year and to 2.8 per cent in 2016, from 3.6 per cent in 2014, while the public debt will rise to 187.9 per cent of GDP this year, easing slightly to 187.6 per cent in 2016, from 184.1 per cent in 2014.The OECD noted that economic growth will remain weak in 2015 because uncertainty related with the reform program and a deteriorating liquidity condition have undermined business confidence and investments. For 2016, economic growth will be more dynamic and unemployment will ease as exports and investments are projected to recover along with a reform effort, although the economy will remain in a deflation trend this year.“The debt burden will remain very high and fiscal sustainability demands the continuation of restrain policies for some time. Fiscal policy must focus on a small primary surplus. Reforming the tax system and tax collection are necessary to boost revenues, while further reforms on the pension system could hep in containing spending,” OECD said in its report.“Structural reforms to reduce hurdles in competition and investments could boost exports and create more high-quality jobs, while reforms in social policy must focus on a fair distribution of costs and benefits from an adjustment policy. Investment recovery will depend on the return of business confidence and the rate of implementing structural reforms. It is necessary to improve access to credit, that is why it is crucial to stabilize the banking system and resolve the non-performing loans issue,” it noted.Source: ana-mpalast_img read more

Riot Games employees walk out to protest forced arbitration

first_img Post a comment Tech Industry Gaming Tags Share your voicecenter_img 0 Riot Games headquarters in Los Angeles.Chris Yunker/FlickrMore than 100 employees of Riot Games, the company behind League of Legends, joined a staged walkout Monday to protest the use of forced arbitration to resolve sexual harassment claims.”This is an action we intended specifically to target forced arbitration,” Jocelyn Monahan, a social listening strategist at Riot Games and one of the organizers of the walkout, told Vice. “We’re asking forced arbitration be ended for all past, current, and future riot employees including contractors and also in current litigation.”Riot Games is one of the latest companies to be publicly outed for an internal culture unfriendly to women. In another high-profile instance, Uber came under scrutiny for sexual harassment. In the larger tech industry, hostile work environments are cited among a laundry list of reasons why women leave tech or don’t even get near it at all.The walkout, which had reportedly been in the works since late April, follows an August story from Kotaku alleging a sexist work environment where women’s opinions were discounted and female employees were subjected to sexual harassment.The company announced on Wednesday that future employees could opt out of forced arbitration for sexual harassment and assault claim, but that existing lawsuits would still be subject to the arbitration process.”As soon as current litigation is resolved, we will give all new Rioters the choice to opt-out of mandatory arbitration for individual sexual harassment and sexual assault claims,” Riot said in a statement Wednesday. “At that time, we will also commit to have a firm answer around expanding the scope and extending this opt-out to all Rioters.”Riot said it knew the decision wouldn’t be popular with all of its employees.”We understand and respect Rioters who choose to protest this decision on Monday, and admire their conviction and willingness to stand up for their beliefs,” it said.Riot said Monday it supported employees who chose to walk out Monday.”We support Rioters making their voices heard today,” Riot said in a statement. “We have asked all managers to make every accommodation to allow Rioters to participate during the 2-4pm window, including freeing up meeting times. We respect Rioters who choose to walk out today and will not tolerate retaliation of any kind as a result of participating (or not).”As soon as active litigation is resolved, we will give all new Rioters the choice to opt-out of mandatory arbitration for individual sexual harassment and sexual assault claims,” Riot said. “At that time, we will also commit to have a firm answer on potentially expanding the scope and extending this opt-out to all Rioters.” last_img read more

Are JK govt Hurriyat headed for talks in Kashmir Governor Satya Pal

first_imgKey Kashmiri seperatist leaders Yasin Malik (L), Syed Ali Shah Geelani (C) and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq hold hands after addressing a press confrence in Srinagar on November 8, 2016.TAUSEEF MUSTAFA/AFP/Getty ImagesFor the last four years of Narendra Modi-led BJP gpvernment at the centre, the talks with the separatist leadership in Kashmir has failed to take off. However, times may be changing as the J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik hinted at the possibility of the resumption in the dialogue process with the seaparatists. Malik said during an event in Srinagar on Saturday that the Hurriyat leaders in the Valley are ready for talks. He called it as a positive sign. He added that Hurriyat leaders were not interested in the talks before but are now ready to involve in the process.The J&K Governor’s statement came a day after the Chairman of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (Moderate ), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that if Narendra Modi government initiates any talks process, the separatist leaders in the Valley will respond positively to it. Mirwaiz Umar said that since BJP led government has won the recent Lok Sabha elections with a massive mandate, it is possible for it to resume the dialogue process with the people in Kashmir Valley for which Hurriyat will act as a mediator.Mirwaiz emphasised that the iron fist policy of the Narendra Modi government towards Kashmir problem has alienated the people from the rest of the country. “My strong belief is that the Indian government should open all communication channels with then,”people in Kashmir and further with the government of Pakistan,” Miwaiz told the Daily Excelsior.He said that the muscular policy of young boys who take up arms in Kashmir has not solved the problem. “Infact, more and more young men are driven towards militancy now,” Mirwaiz added. He said that the Atal Bihari-led BJP government in the Centre had also initiated various Confidence Building measures among which the dialogue process was also a key one. Mirwaiz said that Narendra Modi should emulate Vajpayee’s model in Kashmir.With Hurriyat leaders in jail, how will dialogue proceed?Ironically, the rumours around the resumption in the dialogue process has come at a time when the Union Home Minister Amit Shah has talked tough against anyone who does not abide by the country’s constitution.The central government has already detained the key separatist leaders including Yasin Malik, Shabir Shah and various others in jail for their involvement in anti-national activities. The hardline leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, who has openly advocated for accession of Kashmir towards Pakistan was barred from speaking at an event in the Kashmir University on Friday. Several others have been kept under house arrest. Soldiers take position during a gun-battle with militants at Rehmatabad village in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore district on Feb 21, 2015. Two foreign guerrillas belonging to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) group were killed in the encounter.IANSOn the other hand, the security forces have been directed for zero tolerance against militants. The top leadership of various active militant outfits such as Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba has also been eliminated. Under prevailing circumstances, the resumption of dialogue as indicated by the J&K Governor has taken everyone by surprise.last_img read more

20 Percent of Optimal Households Failing to Refinance

first_img20 Percent of Optimal Households Failing to Refinance Share in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Servicing FHFA HARP National Bureau of Economic Research Refinance 2015-02-27 Samantha Guzmancenter_img Research released by the National Bureau of Economic Research shows 20 percent of households for whom refinancing would be optimal failed to refinance in December 2010, costing them tens of thousands of dollars in savings. In “Failure to Refinance,” researchers Benjamin Keys, Devin Pope, and Jaren Pope found that U.S. households could have saved $1.5 billion dollars had they refinanced, with the median having the potential to save $160 per month on the remaining life of their existing loan.“We became interested in this topic after hearing anecdotes from friends and neighbors about how they knew people who were leaving loads of money on the table. We wanted to move beyond just anecdotes and try to understand more broadly how many people may be failing to refinance when it seemed like they could or should,” Devin Pope said.Borrowers lose out on big money when they fail to take advantage of low interest rates and refinance. For example, a household with a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage of $200,000 at an interest rate of 6.5 percent that refinances when rates fall to 4.5 percent will save over $80,000 in interest payments over the life of the loan, even after including all the typical refinancing costs. Mortgage rates were around 4.7 percent in December 2010, higher than the current rate of 3.5 percent. Still, many homes fail to refinance.“Some obvious obstacles include lack of information and the time cost associated with refinancing,” Pope said. “However, behavioral economics has also suggested that things like procrastination and attention could be important factors.”The Federal Housing Finance Agency and the Department of Treasury launched the Home Affordable Refinance Program in 2009, just a year before this data was collected. An estimated four to five million borrowers whose loans were owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac were predicted to take advantage of this new program, but by September 11th fewer than a million mortgagors had refinanced under HARP.Pope suggests making the refinance process more simple or automatic could combat some of the barriers people face when trying to refinance. Authors of the study also suggest offering more in-depth workshops and counseling could provide homeowners with more financial education and break down some of the barriers they face in refinancing.According to information release by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in January over 12,000 people used HARP to refinance their homes in November 2014 and about 3.2 million people have taken advantaged of HARP since it was introduced in 2009.Last June the FHFA announced new efforts to reach eligible homeowner who have yet to refinance their homes through HARP.  FHFA launched an interactive map which shows there are more than 625,000 homeowners who could refinance through HARP. They have also been holding outreach events to attract more eligible homeowners, with the next event set to happen in New Jersey on March 4.”We know that there are hundreds of thousands of borrowers who can still benefit from HARP and are essentially leaving money on the table by not taking advantage of the program,” said Melvin Watt, director of the FHFA.  “By engaging directly with local community leaders, faith-based organizations, local elected officials, and lenders, our goal is to leverage these trusted sources to reach as many ‘in-the-money’ borrowers as we can.” February 27, 2015 469 Views last_img read more
