Chained protesters say: ‘Freedom for Rasmea Odeh’

first_imgWW photo: Terri KayOutraged by the guilty verdict and immediate jailing of 67-year-old Palestinian activist Rasmea Odeh on Nov. 10, her supporters rallied and vowed to continue with their protests until she is released. Two days later, a group chained themselves to the doors of the Federal Courthouse at the Ron Dellums Federal Building in downtown Oakland.In addition to those who chained themselves, many others banged and drummed on the doors with their fists, demanding Rasmea’s freedom. After several hours, fire fighters were brought in to cut the chains and locks and five people were arrested. They were later cited and released.“The targeting of Rasmea is purely to criminalize Palestinians who are outspoken and critical of Israel’s oppression and occupation of Palestine,” says Lara Kiswani, executive director of the Arab Resource and Organizing Center.In a statement, the AROC explained that “Odeh is the founder of the Arab Women’s Committee in Chicago, a grassroots collective that offers an environment that promotes leadership among Arab immigrant women. The U.S. government has accused her of omitting an answer on her citizenship application 10 years ago. Odeh, who was sexually tortured into a false confession by Israel and served a decade in Israeli prisons, faces revocation of her citizenship, imprisonment, and deportation.”A letter of protest by more than 100 feminist scholars adds: “Rasmea’s story encompasses some of the most urgent feminist struggles of our times — violence against women and the use of sexual violence as a tool of colonization and war; the impact of racism and anti-immigrant policies upon women; the criminalization of women of color; and the use of intimidation to thwart feminist activism.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Rains Continue and Crop Condition is Steady

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Rains Continue and Crop Condition is Steady By Andy Eubank – Jul 20, 2015 SHARE Facebook Twitter Rains Continue and Crop Condition is Steady Heavy rains as well as wind, hail and lightning, took a toll on crops last week, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Region. A few days of dry, warm weather were outshined by rain at the beginning and end of the week. Many areas of the state received two or more inches of rain, with some areas receiving in excess of five inches of rain, adding more unneeded moisture to already soaked fields. There were 2.3 days suitable for field work, 0.5 days higher than the previous week.Farmers were challenged to find a window to combine winter wheat, cut and bale hay, bale straw and plant double-crop soybeans this week. Winter wheat harvest continued slowly, but those who found a little window to harvest reported wheat of low quality. There have been reports of elevators rejecting wheat loads due to the presence of vomitoxin. Winter wheat left unharvested continues to have quality issues, including problems with scab, sprouting and mold. Soybeans looked pretty good in places that were not drowned out. Several farmers were able to spray soybean fields that had been previously neglected due to wet field conditions. Corn growth and condition continued to be variable across the State depending upon soils and moisture. Early plantings on well-drained soils were looking better than later planted corn struggling with excessive moisture and nutrient deficiency. There were reports of tasseling in corn only 2-3 feet high. Although feedlots remain sloppy, livestock were in good condition. In some areas, cattle were being kept off pastures to prevent them from becoming mud pits. Other activities for the week included spraying fungicides and herbicides where possible and attending county fairs.Regionally, winter wheat harvested was 44% in the North, 76% in Central, and 93% in the South. Soybeans blooming was 50% complete in the North, 49% in Central and 59% in the South. By region, soybean conditions rated good to excellent were 40% in the North, 39% in Central and 41% in the South. Corn silking was 41% complete in the North, 45% in Central and 80% in South. By region, corn conditions rated good to excellent were 40% in the North, 45% in Central and 54% in the South.National corn condition remains steady at 69% in the good to excellent category. With 62% of soybeans rated good to excellent, there is no change in that number from a week ago.Source: NASS Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articlePurdue Ag Opens Nominations for 2 Top AwardsNext articleAgronomist Suggests Extra Eyes when Evaluating Crops Andy Eubanklast_img read more

They are being held at al-Khalil. “The Palestinian Authority on the West Bank, under the control of the Fatah party of President Mahmud Abbas, condemns abuses by Hamas but has no scruples about putting journalists in prison, apparently for no reason, except for working for a media linked to the Islamist party. We condemn the fact that Palestinian journalists are among the main victims of this clash between two factions,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Hamas spokesman, Tahar Al-Nunu said on 31 October that no journalist can continue working without obtaining a new press card from the information ministry.
