Big Lottery Fund awards the Howard League for Penal Reform over £2.6m

first_img Big Lottery Fund awards the Howard League for Penal Reform over £2.6m to establish a national programme of support for young people in custodyThe Howard League for Penal Reform is delighted to have been awarded funding by the Big Lottery Fund as part of the Young People’s Fund 2 (YPF2) National Grants programme today (Wednesday, 29 October).UR Boss: Legal service shaped by young people in custody will be a ground-breaking national programme of support for young people in custody. Transforming the existing work of the Howard League’s legal team, which represents children and young adults in custody, the project will run over five years and aims to give a voice to the disenfranchised and neglected young people in our prisons.The Big Lottery Fund has awarded £2,617,921 over five years to fund the creation of this new and enhanced form of legal service for young people.Young people participating in UR Boss will be given advice on challenging a legal decision, ./guidance on their entitlements both during detention and after release, media training and ./guidance on how get their voice heard.Director of the Howard League for Penal Reform, Frances Crook, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive funding as part of the Young People’s Fund 2 and we are committed to providing young people in custody with the support they desperately need.“Listening to young people in custody and addressing their needs will improve their transition to becoming law-abiding citizens. Our legal team’s case files tell the stories of neglected and abused children, with chaotic family backgrounds and problems ranging from mental health needs to drug or alcohol addictions. All too often local authorities and other agencies have failed these young people from a very early age.“Why does this matter? Because the problems these young people face more often than not have caused their criminal behaviour. It is only when we help young people to address what has caused their offending that we can also help society become safer and reduce the risk of more victims experiencing crime.“The UR Boss project will allow us to expand the legal support and advice we can give, by creating a unique legal service which is shaped by the young people themselves. We will provide professional, dedicated legal expertise with pastoral care and advocacy throughout imprisonment to resettlement in the community.“Crucially, the project will seek to build young people’s own capacity to participate and comment on wider debates on policy and practice. We will develop policy on youth justice with young people’s help and then give them the support and training to make their voice heard – be it on the internet, in front of a television camera or before a parliamentary select committee.”Sanjay Dighe, BIG Lottery Fund England Chair, said: “YPF 2 National Grants offers young people unique opportunities to be at the heart of planning and running projects. The Howard League for Penal Reform’s UR Boss project will provide young people in custody with a chance to present their views, needs and experiences through a programme of practical support and ./guidance. Most importantly, it will provide a perfect platform on which to improve their futures both during detention and after release. BIG is delighted to be funding such a worthy venture.”Further informationAndrew Neilson 020 7249 7373 ext. 119ISDN line available on 020 7923 4196 – uses a G722 systemThe Howard League for Penal Reform has an expertise in youth justice going back more than a century and our legal team has represented children in the penal system since 2002, following a landmark judicial review against the Home Office that forced it to recognise that the 1989 Children Act protects children in prison.

Workers, activists fighting Veolia hold international conference

first_imgCharles Smith talked about the struggle in Richmond, Calif., against Veolia’s takeover of the wastewater treatment system. Since Veolia landed the contract, water rates have risen astronomically. Faced with an old water treatment plant, Veolia is making “the working-class population of Richmond pay” for building a new one.Nancy Murray of the Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights spoke on the successful campaign to stop Veolia’s contract to run the local mass transit system. The BDS campaign focused on Veolia’s support for Israel and its anti-union, anti-worker record. On Jan. 8, Veolia lost the contract.Mikos Fabersunne, chair of the Davis [California] Committee for Palestinian Rights, said the group successfully fought Veolia’s bid for a large water contract.Tony Yovo, a West African immigrant worker from Baltimore’s SuperShuttle service, spoke against Veolia’s takeover of that company, stating: “I am a victim of Veolia. I was forced into slavery in the 21st century.” Veolia owns SuperShuttle companies around the country.Erin Diaz, director of the Public Water Works Campaign in Boston, said her group exposed Veolia’s role in privatizing and “undermining people’s access to water” in St. Louis and around the world. The 11-month campaign to regain public control of St. Louis’s water access was won with tremendous public support.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this By Terri Kay and Judy GreenspanSteve Gillis and Clarence ThomasSan Francisco — An international conference here on Feb. 8 brought together workers, community members and activists with one common enemy: Veolia. Besides the 100 attendees, many more joined by Skype and watched globally via live streaming.The Veolia Group, a French transnational, wants to privatize water resources, transportation and other public services. Veolia has attacked the Boston School Bus Drivers, United Steelworkers Local 8751, blatantly violating the union contract and firing four of the union’s leaders.Veolia/Transdev Group is the world’s largest water privatization company. Environmental groups have tracked its destructive, corrupt record. In the occupied West Bank of Palestine, Veolia subsidiaries operate segregated buses to illegal Israeli settlements, manage an illegal settler dump and run a light rail system for Israeli settlements around Jerusalem.Clarence Thomas, executive board member of International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10, opened the conference.Boston union leader speaks“In Boston we call them Veo-liar!” said Steve Gillis, vice president of USW Local 8751, and one of the four fired Boston school bus drivers. He described how when Veolia took over the school bus contract in June, “it took away the time clocks and union participation in training” along with the drivers’ records of time spent on required tasks. The union filed 18 unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board and over 175 grievances within the first few months of Veolia’s takeover.Gillis said the majority Haitian, Cape Verdean and Vietnamese drivers were experienced in dealing with the French company, “facing off the police 20 times in the first two months.” On Oct. 7, when Veolia demanded that all the drivers fill out new hire applications, “the drivers in all the yards blocked the doors to the managers’ offices and tore up all the applications,” said Gillis.Veolia management refused a meeting with the drivers’ union leaders on Oct. 8 and ordered all workers off the property “under threat of arrest and locked the gates.” A lockout was in effect.The four leaders — Steve Gillis, Steve Kirschbaum, Garry Murchison and Andre Francois — were fired in early November. “City Councilor Charles Yancey called a City Council meeting, with over 300 people attending, and put Veolia on trial,” said Gillis.He called the Solidarity Day 2 march and rally in Boston on Feb. 1, “a turn around. The new mayor of Boston had to issue a statement saying that ‘the issue must be resolved, for the sake of the children.’”Solidarity with Palestine Dalit Baum, director of the American Friends Service Committee Middle East Program, said Veolia runs segregated buses to Jewish settlements in Israel. Baum said the company is also involved in illegal dumping in Palestinian villages of waste products from Jewish settlements. “Last year, Veolia lost a huge contract involving waste management in London.” Baum attributed this victory to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.Hugh Lanning, former general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union in Britain and chair of the Palestine Solidarity Committee, said via Skype, “Veolia has been a focus because of their complicity with the occupation of Palestine.” He added, “In [Britain], since the Israeli bombardment of Gaza, the public has been moving against Israel.”Omar Barghouti, co-founder of the BDS movement in Palestine, said via Skype: “Our very first supporters were trade unionists. After Israel’s attack on Gaza and the Freedom Flotilla in 2010, Swedish dockworkers refused to offload Israeli cargo from ships.”Barghouti said that over the past five years, the BDS campaign against Veolia has cost that company $20 billion. “Our greatest victories against Veolia have been cross movement efforts to tie international human rights violations with local negative impacts like privatizing the water system.”Gillis expressed the solidarity of the Boston bus drivers with the BDS movement and its fight to get all companies to divest from Veolia.Regional discussionlast_img read more

Protests, strikes in Latin America

first_imgWorkers filled the streets in Argentina in protest marches on April 29 against right-wing President Mauricio Macri’s campaign of job cuts. The main demonstration took place in Buenos Aires, where hundreds of thousands of people participated. Protests also took place in other provinces.In a show of unity, the five main trade unions called the march despite their own differences with each other.”This is a historic gathering. … We understand that the interests of the workers come before the interests of the union leaders,” said Hugo Moyano, who heads the truckers union and a branch of the influential CGT labor federation. “Macri is against the workers.” (Mercopress, April 30) They have united not only to oppose job cuts but also against mounting poverty, soaring public utility bills, rampant inflation and the government’s neoliberal austerity policies.In his first four months in power, Macri has overseen the sackings of 127,000 public and private sector workers, despite the familiar right-wing election campaign promise to create more jobs. Unions are vowing a general strike if Macri vetoes a bill reinstating many laid off workers.Macri has also welcomed U.S. “vulture funds,” which bought Argentinian sovereign debt bonds at a small fraction of their face value, and then demanded repayment in full.The recent Panama Papers leak exposed Macri’s directorship of an offshore tax haven shell company for the business empire of his billionaire father, Francisco Macri.Avenida Segunda, in Costa Rica’s capital of San José, April 26.Costa RicaUnion groups in Costa Rica launched a massive strike on April 26 that is being called the “Mother of All Strikes.” Public schools, airports and health care services came to a halt as thousands of workers went on strike and marched to the Legislative Assembly. They demanded attention to 16 points, including respect for labor rights, defense of the public health care system, defense of the education budget, opposition to sales and income tax increases, salary hikes, land for peasants and access to water as a public right.The unions are also demanding that the rich pay their fair share of taxes. Official calculations estimate that eight percent of the gross domestic product is lost to tax evasion.Protesters carried banners with messages like “Let the rich pay more taxes” and “For the dignity of workers,” among others. One student said that she was participating in the march in protest of attempts to privatize the Costa Rican National Institute of Education “because it is the only chance we have to improve ourselves.” (commondreams.org, April 27)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

In Venezuela, reactionary Guaidó humiliated by assembly defeat

first_imgThe self-appointed “interim president” of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, received a humiliating setback in that country’s National Assembly vote on Jan. 5. He was deposed as leader of the parliamentary body.Throughout 2019, Guaidó served as the designated puppet of U.S. imperialism in Venezuela. He made five attempts with a reactionary, pro-U.S. regime to overthrow and replace the Bolivarian government led by President Nicolás Maduro. Guaidó had no base among Venezuelans outside of his own assembly district and little credibility even among the opposition.Guaidó attempts and fails to rally right-wing reaction in Venezuela.His main support came from the worst imperialist operatives allied with the Trump administration: Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Marco Rubio, Elliott Abrams, from Trump himself; from Luis Almagro — the Uruguayan U.S. agent heading the Organization of American States; the Iván Duque regime in Colombia; Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil; and from the European Union.Guaidó’s complete lack of popular support helped defeat all five of his attempts to make a coup during 2019. He was also connected to the embezzlement of humanitarian aid and links to Colombian paramilitary outfits — “death squads.”Opposition parties have dominated the National Assembly (AN) since the December 2015 vote. Apparently a majority of the representatives, even those opposing the Maduro government, were disgusted with Guaidó’s role.On Jan. 5, some 81 of 150 voting members elected Luis Parra president, replacing Guaidó, who didn’t attend the meeting. Guaidó claimed he wasn’t allowed in, staging a fence-climbing photo-op.Maduro recognized Parra as the new AN president, saying on Jan. 5: “The National Assembly has voted and there is a new leadership board. It was in the air that Guaidó was going to be removed by the very opposition.” Maduro  criticized Guaidó for “not showing up.”Parra said he would “pursue a path toward reconciliation” with the government. (quotes from venezuelaanalysis.com, Jan. 5)On Jan. 8, Guaidó declared the Jan. 5 vote irregular and established his own version of the national assembly, with himself as its leader.That means Guaidó is the self-appointed leader of a self-appointed assembly, which he claims gives him the right to be the self-appointed president. Pence congratulated him.While his obvious lack of popular support may make him a ridiculous figure, U.S. imperialism’s backing for Guaidó continues the threat against Venezuela’s revolution and its sovereignty. The progressive movement in the United States must still resist U.S. interference in Venezuela and demand an end to U.S. sanctions that have imposed suffering on millions of Venezuelans.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
