San Francisco School Bus Drivers President Lois Correa, Oct. 30. Photo: Alicia LoaizaThe San Francisco School Bus Drivers union held a spirited morning picket line on Oct. 30 in solidarity with the Boston School Bus Drivers union, under attack by the Veolia corporation. Among the workers who took part in the demonstration outside the San Francisco office of Veolia Transportation were a dozen San Francisco school bus drivers and four of their union officers.The protesters chanted: “Greedy Veolia! Hands off the Boston school bus drivers!” and “The people have spoken! Veolia’s charter must be revoked!”Chris Finn, recording secretary of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555, coming off a strike of Bay Area Rapid Transit workers, spoke at the rally. He pointed out that Thomas Hock, Veolia’s vice president for labor relations, was the union-busting chief negotiator for BART management during the recent BART contract talks. “Veolia is a union buster,” he said, “and they need to be pushed back now.” Finn expressed support for the Boston school bus drivers in their struggle to protect their contract and working conditions.The San Francisco school bus drivers have a long history of solidarity unionism. To give just one example, years ago, during the United Farm Workers campaign to organize strawberry workers, the San Francisco school bus drivers drove 80 buses full of UFW supporters from San Francisco to Watsonville, Calif., for a mass support rally.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists Follow the news on Sri Lanka RSF_en July 15, 2020 Find out more Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Organized crimeCorruptionViolence January 13, 2021 Find out more News The editor of the Negombo-based newspaper Meepura and the Meepura news portal and convener of the Web Journalists Association, Gamage was attacked by two men as he left a Negombo municipal council meeting that he had covered at the mayor’s invitation. His assailants, whose faces were covered by motorcycle helmets, hit him with a wooden pole and then fled on motorcycle. The police later arrested two persons suspected of being his attackers and are still holding them. The leading suspect, Thusan Krishmal, is reportedly a municipal council worker. Gamage thinks he was the victim of a reprisal for his reporting, much of which is focused on corruption involving local officials. Above all, he suspects that it was linked to his coverage of deputy mayor Dayan Lanza. The deputy mayor called him two weeks before the attack and told him that God would punish him if he wrote bad things about him (the deputy mayor) or his brother, Nimal Lanza, who is a deputy minister in President Maithreepala Sirisena’s government. With supporting photos, Web journalists in Sri Lanka claim that Krishmal, the leading suspect, is an associate of both of the Lanza brothers. They also reports that an examination of Krishmal’s mobile phone records shows that he called the deputy mayor 16 times on the day of the attack. “We applaud the way the authorities moved quickly to arrest Freddy Gamage’s suspected attackers,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “We now urge them to identify those who masterminded the attack and to bring them to justice. “The police must not let their investigation be affected by the status and official positions of those singled out by Gamage. And if another attack take place, those targeted by his reporting, especially Dayan Lanza, who has already tried to intimidate him, should be regarded by the police as suspects.” Although attacks on journalists have declined since the new government took over in January 2015, RSF and Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka reiterate their call to President Sirisena to end the policy of violence against journalists of his predecessor, Mahinda Rajapaksa, and to combat impunity. Sri Lanka is ranked 141st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Organized crimeCorruptionViolence

The Bench of Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq and Justice Atul Sreedharan orally remarked, “Janta ko loota jaa raha hai, unka dard humara dard hai (Citizens are being looted, their pain is our pain)”#MadhyaPradeshHighCourt is hearing a batch of petitions concerning the #Covid-19 situation in the State.Hearing before the bench of Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq and Justice Atul Sreedharan pic.twitter.com/mLGO8wOjSz— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 19, 2021Further, Justice Atul Sreedharan orally remarked that the State was finding problems within solutions and asked as what the State Government proposed to do with regard to rationalization of the charges by the private hospitals and for fixation of the capping thereof. Significantly, when the Advocate General for the state stated that “70 saal see jo nahin hua wo hum kar rahe hain (what did not happen in 70 years, we have done that in the State),” Justice Sreedharan said, “Don’t tell all this. You have been here for 20 years, don’t tell us about what happened in 70 years. What did you do?”AG: 70 saal see jo nahin hua wo hum kar rahe hain (what did not happen in 70 years, we have done that in the State).Justice Shreedharan: Don’t tell all this. You have been here for 20 years, don’t tell us about what happened in 70 years. What did you do?— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 19, 2021Other directions issued by the State Government Considering that if not used timely, the Remdesivir injections are likely to go waste, the Court deemed it appropriate to direct the State authorities to get the seized Remdesivir injections tested through the State Forensic Science Laboratory or any other appropriate agency, to find out whether or not, the drugs, which have been seized, are genuine Remdesivir injections. Further, the Court directed, “…to the extent the seized vials of the Remdesivir are found to be genuine, the Chief Medical & Health Officer of the concerned district would make an application before the appropriate Court for taking delivery of such seized drugs, which shall pass the required orders in that behalf, within a period of three days from the date of filing of the application, so that the medicine can be provided to needy patients before its expiry.” Apart from this, the Amicus Curiae Naman Nagrath stated 76 ventilators at Bundelkhand Medical College, Sagar; 24 ventilators at Government Hospital, Shahdol; 2 ventilators at Alirajpur; 2 ventilators at Katni are either lying uninstalled or unused. He further submitted that most of these ventilators could not be used on account of the non-availability of expert technicians. To this, Mr. P.K. Kaurav, Advocate General submitted efforts are being made to make all these ventilators functional in the entire State and he undertook to apprise the Court about the current situation of these and other ventilators lying at Alirajpur and Katni on the next date of hearing. Importantly, the Court also directed the respondent-State thus: “Place on record a report showing as to how many ventilators were obtained under the PM Cares Fund and how many are procured by the State Government on its own and how many of them are functional. The data shall be produced on record as to the availability of ventilators in all the Government/District Hospitals of the State.” With this, the matter has been posted for further hearing on May 24.

Mayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,More than 100 people attended a town hall meeting last night to share their thoughts on the Ninth Street corridor in Ocean City. The city currently has what I consider a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire properties that could change the face of Ocean City – to turn abandoned gas stations into parks or public facilities. Because we won’t get this chance again, I want to make sure I get full feedback from the public. I’d like to personally thank everybody who attended and participated last night. The city heard a wide range of ideas, questions and concerns, and all will be considered as we move forward.I also want to encourage everybody who could not attend to provide their input by completing this brief survey: www.ocnj.us/survey.One conceptual plan shared on Thursday includes open space at the corner of Ninth Street and Bay Avenue, where a blighted Exxon station once stood and where a local real estate agency hopes to build a new office. That particular site is included because the city had plans to address the abandoned property there long before the private company expressed an interest. I don’t want anybody to think that the city is trying to interfere with a business deal that could bring new ratables and new services to town.I hope you all share my enthusiasm for beautifying the gateway to Ocean City, and I’m excited to take your ideas and help make them come true.I’d like to remind everybody that the boardwalk between 8th Street and 10th Street will be closed starting Tuesday (Oct. 11) as we prepare for the next phase of boardwalk reconstruction (read more). The section between 8th Street and the Music Pier will be complete by First Night, and the entire project should be done by the end of March, if not earlier. I thank you all for your patience as this important work continues.The bridges and Route 52 causeway will be lit pink for October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. City team members also donned pink today as part of the awareness campaign. There are very few families in our community who have not been affected in some way by breast cancer, and it’s my hope that we all can help the American Cancer Society to better prevent, detect and treat the disease.Because of the potential for rough seas, the fireworks scheduled for Saturday night (Oct. 8) have been canceled, but all other events will continue as scheduled. The annual Fall Block Party will run 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Asbury Avenue between 5th Street and 14th Street. The Block Party is always one of the highlights of the season, and I hope you’ll be able to come out and have some fun.Warm regards,Jay A. Gillian MayorCheck on the latest project updates and sign up for email alerts.
The new cycle lane and other improvements at Two Mills make it much safer and easier to cross the junction and a lot of the cyclists I’ve been speaking to think they’re wonderful. There have been several accidents involving cyclists at the junction over the years and the new layout means you’re now much more protected. We’re all aware of the health benefits of cycling and improvements like these help to create safe cycling routes as well. I’d definitely encourage anyone interested in taking up cycling in 2018 to join their local Cycling UK group and to explore their local cycle routes. The A540, which runs between Chester and Hoylake, is popular with cyclists and group rides set off from a cyclists’ café near the Two Mills junction during most weekends throughout the year.The new cycle path, which is shared by cyclists and pedestrians, runs along the southbound A540. The route crosses two new islands on the A550 at the Two Mills junction before continuing along the A540, and a new high-friction road surface has been laid to reduce the risk of collisions.Peter Williams from Neston is a member of the Chester Cycling Campaign, which campaigns for new and improved cycle routes. He said: Members of the Chester Cycling Campaign were among the first to ride along the new cycle path through the busy Two Mills junction, where the A550 meets the A540 in Cheshire.The Highways England project involved creating a new 320 metre cycleway through the junction, which is used by more than 37,000 vehicles every day, with new traffic lights and crossings also making it easier to cross the A550.The project is among 24 cycling schemes completed in the North West over the past two years, as part of a £100 million government investment across England to make it easier for cyclists to cross motorway junctions and use major A roads.They include a new 1.5 mile shared cycle path along the A585 near Fleetwood; a new 700 metre shared cycle path by the A5117 at Dunkirk near Chester; and a new 600 metre shared cycle path near junction 21 of the M60 alongside the A663 in Oldham, along with improvements to footbridges, signs and road markings.Work is also due to start later this month on a new 400 metre shared cycle path under junction 9 of the M53 at Ellesmere Port, providing a cycle link from the town to the National Waterways Museum and canal towpath.Phil Tyrrell, Project Manager at Highways England, said: We’re committed to significantly improving safety across our road network, and the new cycle path as well as the wider and longer right turn lanes at Two Mills will make it much easier and safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to cross the junction. We want to provide cycling facilities that give people a genuine choice about whether to travel in their car or to get on a bike instead. If we can encourage more people to use their bikes for local journeys then this should also improve the flow of traffic for drivers travelling longer distances. Highways England also opened a new three-mile route for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders in Cheshire last year following the completion of the new A556 link road between the M56 and the M6. The old A556 has been converted into a B road with a shared cycle path.General enquiriesMembers of the public should contact the Highways England customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000.Media enquiriesJournalists should contact the Highways England press office on 0844 693 1448 and use the menu to speak to the most appropriate press officer.
Scottish family bakery Aulds has closed a further four stores after making the decision to liquidate its retail arm to focus on the wholesale and production operation.The four stores, in Princes Mall in East Kilbride, High Street in Lanark, Union Street in Larkhall and Almondvale South in Livingston all ceased trading on 8 August resulting in a further 23 staff being made redundant.“Regrettably, we have had to close a further four stores to reduce losses which has resulted in a further 23 employees being made redundant. We are working with local and national organisations to support those employees to process claims as quickly as possible,” said Paul Dounis, RSM restructuring advisory partner and provisional liquidator.It comes less than a week after 26 Aulds staff were let go when it closed stores in Renfrew, Kilmarnock, Irvine and Ayr.The closures are part of Aulds’ plans to liquidate its retail arm, which had been forced into an “unsustainable loss-making position”. On 2 August the business appointed Paul Dounis and Steve Ross of RSM Restructuring Advisory LLP as joint provisional liquidators of the retail arm of the group, Thomas Auld & Sons Limited.The remaining 18 Thomas Auld & Sons Limited stores across Scotland continue to trade while the provisional liquidators seek to sell some or all of the stores to enhance value for creditors and safeguard as many jobs as possible.The liquidation does not impact the group’s three other subsidiary companies, Aulds Bakeries Limited and Auld the Bakers Limited – which manufacture fresh and frozen bakery at the firm’s Greenock site – and Aulds Delicious Desserts, which has a manufacturing facility at Inchinnan.
