Wisconsin protests demand ‘Justice for Tony Robinson!’

first_imgHundreds take to the streets of Madison May 13 in response to the non-indictment of Matt Kenney, the killer cop that on March 6 murdered Tony Robinson, a 19-year-old Black student.Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne announced in Madison, Wis., on May 12 that police officer Matt Kenney would not be charged in the March 6 killing of Tony Robinson, an unarmed 19-year-old Black student.  In response, hundreds of Black and Brown youth and their allies took to the city’s streets that day and the next day to protest  another injustice where a white police officer is not held accountable for killing a person of color.This is the second time since 2007 that Kenney has killed someone while on duty and been allowed to walk free.  He is now on paid leave.  The Madison Police Department says an “internal investigation” is taking place and a decision will be reached soon on whether Kenney will return to the streets.Anticipating the district attorney’s decision, the Young, Gifted and Black Coalition called for an all-day “Black-Out Wednesday” on May 13. Protesters gathered at the house where Robinson was slain by Kenney.There, Brandi Grayson, leader of Young, Gifted and Black, stated, “What we are seeing unfold in Madison is validation that Black lives do not matter. How can people say ‘all lives matter’ when they have yet to prove that ‘Black lives matter’?   This is a struggle for power, Black power, Black liberation. You understand that your liberation is bound in Black liberation and it is time for us to act accordingly,” she emphasized.The demonstrators then marched all day, carrying huge banners demanding, “Justice for Tony!” and “Black Lives Matter!”  Black and Brown youth led the march, joined by their white working-class allies.  They shut down streets around the city and held a civil disobedience action at the jail. There, protesters chained themselves together to demand justice for Robinson and an end to state violence.Activists also held a  “people’s court” on the state Capitol steps. More than two dozen were arrested.Solidarity protests in MilwaukeeIn solidarity with the protests in Madison, the Coalition For Justice in Milwaukee held a “Justice For Tony Robinson” demonstration on May 13 at Red Arrow Park, where 31-year-old Dontre Hamilton had been gunned down a year earlier.  The coalition formed after Milwaukee police officer Christopher Manney fired 14 shots at the 31-year-old  African-American man on April 30, 2014. Manney was not charged for this heinous crime.The Nation Of Islam Mosque No. 3 held a “Black Lives Matter” forum on May 13 in Milwaukee.Numerous other acts of solidarity took place on May 13, and many statements were issued, too, demanding justice for the slain youth. The Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement denounced the outrageous decision not to indict Kenney for killing Tony Robinson.  Their statement said: “We stand in full solidarity with the Robinson, Hamilton and all families affected by their loved ones being murdered by the police. We stand in solidarity with the Young, Gifted and Black Coalition and the Coalition For Justice. We demand justice for Tony, Dontre, Rekia Boyd, Freddie Grey and all victims of police terror.”The group demanded the prosecution and jailing of all police who have committed fatal acts of terror against Black and other oppressed communities, and called for disarming the police. Their statement concluded with: “All out for May 13 protest actions in Milwaukee and Madison! Living wage jobs and other people’s needs, not police terror!”  (wibailoutpeople.org)Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) of Rockford, Ill., stated: “Today, the Dane County district attorney announced that there would be no charges against Madison Police Officer Matt Kenny for the murder of Tony Robinson, an unarmed Black youth. FIST sees this as the continuation of justice denied to Black and Brown communities that face police terror and occupation.“We stand in full solidarity with the Robinson Family and those who are fighting back against this injustice.”  The statement concluded by expressing solidarity with the Robinson family, calling for actions on May 13 and the jailing of “killer cops.”  (facebook.com/RKFDFIST)The Young, Gifted and Black Coalition and the Coalition for Justice are continuing to organize actions demanding justice for Tony Robinson, Dontre Hamilton and all other victims of police terror.

Winning Students Rocking YouTube with Ethanol Videos

first_img SHARE Winning Students Rocking YouTube with Ethanol Videos SHARE The results of the National Corn Growers Association’s Ethanol Rocks Video Contest are in. High school senior Jason Girouard from Brimfield, Mass. received first-place honors and an award of $1,500. Two second-place winners, freshman Emily Yue from Gilford, Conn., and senior Lewis Kloster of Minneapolis, Minn., each received $500 in prize money.“The purpose of the contest was to get youth interested in learning about renewable fuel while having fun,” said NCGA Ethanol Committee Chair Chad Willis. “However, I think we may have turned a few of the more inquisitive kids into ethanol evangelists. The enthusiasm about their learning experience was the biggest payoff of the project.”The experience of entering the contest revealed just how much they learned about ethanol’s impact in our everyday lives. They discovered co-products produced in the manufacturing process found their way not only into animal feed, but also carbonated drinks and dry ice.Country kids and city kids alike participated in the contest. Although the economic and environmental benefits of ethanol were cited most often by contestants, contest judges were particularly impressed by comments about the video production experience. Urban students that had never ventured into a corn field remarked about walking in fields with the breeze whistling through the rows of corn, the amazing smells of rural life and the experience to be something that everyone should experience.The Ethanol Rocks winning videos are available for viewing online.Source: NCGA Home Energy Winning Students Rocking YouTube with Ethanol Videos Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Nov 5, 2012 Previous articleJust 11 Percent Remaining in the Fields for Indiana Corn and SoybeansNext articleCongress Must Act Before End of the Year to Save Expiring Income Tax Rules Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Lint buildup leads to East Hill apartment fire, IFD says

first_img Crews stayed on scene for about two hours to investigate the fire, which they believe was caused by a buildup of lint. New York State Police also assisted on scene.“The Ithaca Fire Department credits the building’s working alarm system with quickly notifying the residents of the fire and the sprinkler system for keeping it under control until they arrived on scene,” the IFD said in a news release. “Although most people regularly clean out the lint trap itself, IFD recommends everyone also vacuums out inside and below the lint trap as well as the vent pipe leading away from the dryer to help prevent buildup of lint which can lead to fires.”Images courtesy of the Ithaca Fire Department.

Popular local paper struggling with no Government Covid funding

first_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Popular local paper struggling with no Government Covid funding The owner of a popular newspaper in Donegal has expressed frustration over little to no Government funding during the course of the pandemic. While the Government has spent millions on advertising, the bulk of the money has primarily gone to national media with the likes of standalone papers struggling to survive.Since the Covid outbreak began, advertising at the Tir Chonaill Tribune advertising collapsed by 98% with the paper having to decrease its weekly content from 40 to 32 pages.Editor and Owner of the Tir Chonaill Tribune John McAteer spoke to Journalist Ciaran O’Donnell about the issue this week as part of the Business Matters podcast:Audio Playerhttps://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/mcateer1pm.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Faces of the shutdown: In second week, more people impacted by closed agencies

first_imgSpencer Platt/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — As part of the federal government remains closed this week, more people are feeling the impacts around the country.Federal employees and contractors say they are worried about money or the delays the shutdown could cause their work. Businesses say shuttered federal agencies cause delays. And tourists in Washington were met by locked doors instead of access to museums.Here are some of the stories from people who say they have been impacted by the government shutdown.No Love Potion Number Wine?Winery owners in Ohio said they’re worried they could lose business if a Valentine’s Day-themed wine can’t be approved by federal agencies. Benfield Wines was set to release Love Potion Number Wine and sell it online, but they need the government to approve the label. Owner Robert Benfield told ABC News affiliate WTVG they won’t be able to put it out in time because of the shutdown.National Mall vendors see far fewer customers“We’re a small business. This is what we rely on and it’s a big deal. I don’t think sometimes they think about those things when they make decisions that effect us on the lower end of things,” Julia Benfield told the station.It was midday on Wednesday — and still she had made no sales.Jung, 58, has worked for nearly 20 years shuttling between different tourist destinations in the nation’s capital selling sweatshirts, snow globes with the presidential seal and decorative plates adorned with the U.S. Capitol.Even though winter is a slow time for tourism in the District, the government shutdown and subsequent closing of all 17 of the city’s Smithsonian museums, which are world-class and free to the public, had drawn business to a halt, said Jung, who asked to only use her first name to protect her business.“This is particularly slow. This is winter break,” Jung, gesturing to the fellow vendors on an abnormally quiet block of 15th street just outside the White House.“Everybody’s concerned about this situation,” she said.Jung has been following the news in hopes of more details on when the government will reopen, she said, and remains unsure on the politics surrounding the shutdown – specifically President Donald Trump’s border wall, which the president has demanded funding for despite push-back from Democrats.As an American citizen, Jung said, she understands the need for border security. But she’s also a Christian, she said, and feels sympathy for people who “want a basic life.”DC couples have to wait to make it officialBetrothed couples in the Washington, DC-area posted they were unable to get marriage licenses during the shutdown. The marriage bureau in the Capital is part of the DC Superior Court system, which is funded through congressional appropriations like much of the city’s budget.The DC court website says the Marriage Bureau and some other offices are closed during the shutdown, though court hearings and the clerk’s office is open.One couple that got married over the holiday posted they “can’t call it official” until the government reopens.Contract workers go without payAround the country people whose salaries are paid with government contracts are sent home without pay during a shutdown. Unlike government employees who can get back pay approved by Congress, these federal contractors are paid through private companies and have no recourse from the time they’re out of work.Julie Burr, an administrative assistant for the Department of Transportation in Kansas City, said she doesn’t expect any compensation for the time she’s been out of work during the shutdown and that she can’t even get paid for the two weeks before it started because there’s no one to process her time sheet.“I’m just trying to take one day at a time honestly,” Burr said in a phone interview Tuesday. “I keep turning on the news and think maybe today’s the day something will happen.”She said she’s taken extra shifts in her side job as a seasonal employee at Barnes and Noble but it only makes up 25 percent of what her normal pay would be and she’s had to ask for an extension on her rent payment, which was due on the first of the month.“I’m a single mom … we aren’t a two income family or anything. It’s just me, and I’m kind of trying to make things meet and if it comes to the point of selling items in the house I’ll do that,” she said.Tourists left out in the coldThe shutdown caught some tourists by surprise. ABC News spoke to over a dozen tourists who found themselves unable to go to Smithsonian landmarks on Wednesday.Nicklas Skar, a Swedish native, came to Washington on Tuesday night with his daughter. He said they planned to go to the Smithsonian on Wednesday morning in the last remaining hours before the end of the shutdown.“We came down here for just a couple of days to visit the Smithsonian’s and a lot of other stuff as well, so of course its a disappointment,” he said.Skar like many tourists said they found themselves adjusting plans and standing on the outside looking into the empty, dark windows of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum and otherLost time to plan environmental cleanupsLoreen Targos, an EPA scientist and steward for her local union chapter, said environmental cleanup or protection projects will be delayed because of the shutdown. She said EPA staff can’t meet with partners to design projects to clean up environmental contamination or prevent future environmental problems.“When we lose weeks like this we have to catch up and there’s just huge delays in projects, and taking them into the next year or after,” Targos said in a phone interview Monday, adding that it’s impossible to know the extent of the impact until long after the shutdown ends.She said all Americans are hurt with projects intended to protect health and the environment are delayed, but it will be impossible to know the impacts until long after the shutdown ends. Targos said she and other EPA workers are passionate about protecting Americans from environmental issues before it becomes a problem, and because of the shutdown they’re unable to do that.“People feel like ‘I don’t know how this impacts me,’ that’s because we were doing our job,” she said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
