An upsurge in mass demonstrations and rebellions across the United States portends much for developments in 2015. The federal government and ruling class have not seriously addressed the underlying factors associated with the rise in police killings and other racist incidents.The profound disconnect between the ruling Democratic and Republican parties and the African-American masses was starkly revealed last year when voter turnouts were low, while tens of thousands of people demonstrated in the streets against police terrorism and the racist criminal justice system.These militant protests and urban rebellions were not planned by the mainstream Civil Rights organizations, but grew out of the objective conditions facing tens of millions of oppressed people.Entering 2015, we see that right-wing ideology dominates the political superstructure of the U.S. Completely ignored are the growing demands by millions for decent wages, adequate housing, quality education, an end to police abuses and the cessation of military hostilities abroad.The Democratic Party, which appeals to the workers and oppressed during election years seeking their votes, is not advancing any concrete programs to alleviate the suffering and impoverishment of growing numbers of people. Unemployment, underemployment and poverty rates remain extremely high. The decline in the labor participation rate conceals the real magnitude of the problem.A Pew Research Center study entitled “Black unemployment rate is consistently twice that of whites” was issued on Aug. 21, 2013, to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. It reported, “In 1954, the earliest year for which the Bureau of Labor Statistics has consistent unemployment data by race, the white rate averaged 5% and the black rate averaged 9.9%. Last month, the jobless rate among whites was 6.6%; among blacks, 12.6%. Over that time, the unemployment rate for blacks has averaged about 2.2 times that for whites.”Such statistics illustrate that despite the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, fundamental issues of jobs and income remain unresolved. The refusal of the federal government and the corporate elite to enact any national jobs program means that these unemployment figures will continue at the same rate or become even more disparate between African Americans and whites.The U.S. poverty rate sharply reflects these disparities. Overall, it stood at 15 percent in 2013. When race is considered, whites had a poverty rate of 10 percent, while the rate was 27 percent for African Americans — 17 percent higher. The Latino/a poverty rate was 24 percent, just three points below African Americans. (These figures are posted under “Poverty Rate by Race/Ethnicity” at the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation blog, using data issued in March 2014 by the U.S. Census Bureau.)Consequently, it is not surprising that African Americans are expressing mass opposition to the status quo. The struggles of this oppressed nation in North America have paved the way for all significant contemporary democratic and working-class movements.50 years after SelmaA “white backlash” against the demonstrations demanding justice for Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and other victims of racist police violence is already in evidence. Police organizations, backed up by politicians, are decrying any public sympathy expressed toward African-American and other oppressed people who are being gunned down in the streets by the cops.These developments are taking place 50 years after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other members of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference went to Selma, Ala., to escalate an existing struggle for voting rights. Since 1965, many African Americans have been elected to public office and have entered job categories from which they had been previously excluded.However, the fundamental contradictions between the majority of African Americans and the capitalist ruling class remain. Most African Americans have been negatively impacted by the economic system’s restructuring over the last several decades.The housing crisis and the deterioration of the public sector, including in municipal affairs and education, have disproportionately robbed jobs, incomes, homes and essential services from tens of millions of the oppressed living in cities and suburbs.Ferguson, Mo., where the rebellions and mass demonstrations erupted in response to the police killing of Michael Brown on Aug. 9, represents a microcosm of African-American life in the U.S.As voting rights are besieged in many states, the Supreme Court in 2013 struck down the enforcement provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights bill. The U.S. Congress has yet to take any meaningful action to restore access to the basic right to vote, which is ostensibly a byproduct of any bourgeois democracy.Malcolm X said on Jan. 7, 1965, in a speech before the Militant Labor Forum in New York, that 1965 would be one of the bloodiest years on the racial front in U.S. history. His life was taken on Feb. 21. Then on March 7, “Bloody Sunday,” state and local police attacked hundreds of Civil Rights marchers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, after they left Selma on their way to Montgomery, the Alabama state capital. The Watts Rebellion began on Aug. 11. Also, the Lowndes County Freedom Organization, the original Black Panther Party, was founded in Alabama, in the aftermath of the Selma-to-Montgomery march.Independent political action by the African-American masses must lead to new organizational forms and alliances. As a system, capitalism has run its course. Therefore, a major political movement aiming for national liberation and socialist reconstruction is required.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The common concept of fearing what we do not understand runs deep in our Irish ways.We continue to conceive different ways to ours as ‘wrong’ or ‘too different’ to be accepted. Throughout our history we have been known to regard diversity – whether cultural, religious or ethnic – with suspicion and, sometimes, even outright contempt.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The long shadow of religious intolerance and acts of terrorism associated with people of middle-eastern origin is behind much of the suspicion aimed at Muslims. A fair comparison would be to accuse your local parish priest of being an IRA terrorist. You would know that somehow it’s not quite right but sometimes it’s hard to think beyond the Catholic/Nationalist link that has characterised much of the debate about the troubles in Northern Ireland.Unfortunately, much of the same thought process is behind the condemnation of Muslims simply for practicing their faith.Local Immam Khaled Abdhulghafur moved to Limerick from Scotland and he believes that Ireland is “30 years behind other countries regarding attitude towards Muslims”.“When I was living in Glasgow, no one had to give me a second look, I was accepted for who I was,” he said.The Imam explained how he is treated very differently in Limerick because of his religion.He told the Limerick Post he often “gets looks” and is “slandered” in public. Verbal abuse is frequent with jeering and name calling happening at least twice a month. However he considers himself one of the lucky ones. Many of his people have been physically attacked when caught alone just for being Muslim.Mr Abdhulghafur stressed the point: “Everybody is different, You should be able to accept people the way they are.”A study conducted by James Carr, of the Sociology at the University of Limerick, explores how extensive anti-Muslim hostility is in the Republic of Ireland and how it manifests itself in community relations.His research has been on going since September 2010 and his findings have shown that more than a third of the people participating in the study reported experiencing some form of anti-Muslim hostility with Muslim women almost twice as likely to be targeted as Muslim men.Limerick demonstrated similarities with the other 13 Irish towns/cities involved in the study reporting instances of physical and verbal abuse ranging from the forcible removal of head scarves to having missiles thrown at people without provocation.In terms of discrimination, the main area of complaint highlighted in the study was that of employment.Mr Carr says “Comments and treatment that erroneously associate all Muslims with terrorism are common and reminiscent of the abuse experienced by Irish people in the United Kingdom during the Troubles.” Twitter

Slavica/iStock(DULUTH, Minn.) — A group of Girl Scouts camping in the remote wilderness of Minnesota, just miles from the Canadian border, needed rescuing late Friday after being struck by lightning as severe storms rolled through the area.The group of nine scouts was on Knife Lake in the Boundary Waters canoeing area, in St. Louis County, some 120 miles northeast of Duluth, when the storms moved through. The accident took place about 20 miles from the Canadian border.“All patients are awake, alert, and able to move without assistance,” St. Louis County Rescue Squad said in a statement posted to Facebook early Saturday.Officials had said before reaching the group, that two girls were “showing accute symptoms that have us concerned.”Ground and paddle teams reached the girls around midnight after the Minnesota State Police dispatched a plane to pinpoint the location of the group of Girl Scouts, authorities said.Local officials also said they reached out to the Army National Guard for help, but the guard was unable to deploy a Blackhawk helicopter due to its use elsewhere.“Thank you for all your comments, support, prayers, and inquiries,” St. Louis County Rescue Squad said. “Many agencies are throwing a LOT of effort at rescuing these people.”Rescuers brought the injured children to safety by canoe overnight. The group of Girl Scouts was from Chicago, a spokesperson told Duluth ABC affiliate WDIO.“The lead guide called in the lightning strike, per protocol, informed authorities of their exact location per the planned route, and said ‘they believe that lightning struck the ground and they might have experienced ground current,’” Nancy McMullen, director of Marketing, Communications and Customer Care for the Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin, told WDIO in a statement.Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz tweeted about the rescue effort late Friday as well, calling them “a group of very brave Girl Scouts [who] need your prayers tonight.”Weather was warm in the region on Friday, and a severe thunderstorm warning was in effect for northeast Minnesota throughout the night.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Harris County Sheriffs Office(HUMBLE, Texas) — Authorities have charged a 17-year-old from Texas with making a terroristic threat after he allegedly posted on Snapchat about blowing up a plane before flying from Houston to Guatemala.The 17-year-old, Hector Fernando Fonseca, posted messages on the app on Aug. 2, saying, “blown this s— up,” along with a photo of George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston and then “time to blow up the plane.” Both photo messages included a smiley face and bomb emoji, according to a charging document.The threats were only discovered after Snapchat discovered the photos and tipped off the FBI National Threat Operations Center, the documents show.“Defendant, heretofore on or about August 3, 2019, did then and there unlawfully, threaten to commit an offense involving, namely, a Bombing upon George Bush Intercontinental Airport and aircraft located in Harris County, Texas with the intent to cause impairment and interruption of public transportation, place the public in fear of serious bodily injury, and place a substantial group of the public in fear of serious bodily injury,” the court document says.Snapchat provided GPS coordinates for many of Fonseca’s previous posts in Humble, Texas, and FBI agents went to the location on Aug. 4, where they were directed to a friend of Fonseca. The friend, in the presence of his parents, even said he knew the reason the agents came to his home was due to Fonseca’s threatening posts, the charging document describes.The friend confirmed the Snapchat user account belonged to Fonseca and authorities even matched the passport seen in one of the threatening posts to the suspect.Fonseca returned from Guatemala on Aug. 10, according to the documents. He was arrested and charged with the third-degree felony of making a terroristic threat after he returned home.“What everyone needs to know is that we take threats of mass violence seriously — especially when they involve airports, schools and other public, weapon-free places,” Harris County District Attorney Dane Schiller said in a statement. “Houston Police filed charges with prosecutors after receiving information from FBI and Customs and Border Protection agents, who investigated a tip regarding a planned act of violence directed toward Bush Intercontinental Airport.”Fonseca made his first court appearance on Tuesday, where prosecutors were criticized by Harris County magistrate Lisa Porter. She questioned if he was “just a kid popping off” and wondered aloud why they didn’t search his home for bomb-making materials, according to the Houston Chronicle.He is being held on $10,000 bond.The teen faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.In the charging documents, the FBI admitted the airport would have been shut down if it had been made aware of the threats before Fonseca left the country.
