Somewhere along the way, we lost touch. With ourselves and what is most important – our environment and the people in it. The realities of modern life are eroding the base of our existence. Each other. The basic human instinct of interaction is being diminished by a society more comfortable with banter on social media than a real world encounter. We get greater satisfaction from possessions than we do from heartfelt experiences. The pursuit of ‘things’ regulates how we exist and treat others. We say enough. CABN was set up to help provide people with a means to disconnect from the crazy we have brought upon ourselves. Our completely off-grid, sustainable and eco-friendly tiny houses set in some of South Australia’s most stunning and stimulating landscapes offer an ideal escape.

Oakland, Calif., vigil for Sandra Bland

first_imgOver a hundred people gathered at Oscar Grant Plaza in Oakland, Calif., on July 24 for a “Say Her Name” vigil for the murder of Sandra Bland and countless others. Convened by the Ella Baker Center, it was organized as a speakout against state violence. After introductory remarks and poetry by the poet Camara Brown, the vigil became an open mic for any of the Black women in attendance who wanted to speak. One after another, about 20 Black women made moving presentations about how white supremacy and state violence has affected their lives and their loved ones. In the photo, Brown, on the left, emcees the speakout.Photo: Kelly JohnsonFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A Portuguese Marxist examines the bizarre Brexit ‘circus’

first_imgRaposo is a Portuguese Marxist and analyst. This article was published Oct. 23 on the website jornammudardevida.info. Translation by John Catalinotto.Party politics in Britain, power struggles between Britain and the European Union, and U.S. pressure from the outside aiming to break up and weaken the EU have all contributed to turning Brexit into a circus.  But to stop the analysis there would restrict it to looking at the surface of the matter and reverse cause and effect.There is a real difficulty in divorcing Britain from the EU without great losses to both sides. Why? Because European capital has merged to such an extent over the last 50-60 years that separating the British economy from the rest of the EU economy leaves a huge hole in the network interconnecting all European capital. Globalization has actually taken place in Europe, and to reverse it is an impossible task. That is the root of the problem that has blocked Brexit.British big business does not want Brexit, nor does any other big international capitalist enterprise operating in Britain — many of them are already trying to withdraw from the island when faced with the prospect of a break. For obvious reasons the majority of the big bourgeoisie of Britain, therefore, do not want Brexit. This ruling-class attitude is what drives the resistance within the House of Commons, which is called upon to approve the exit agreements. And considering the statements made immediately after the 2016 referendum in the House of Lords, where the cream of the dominant aristocracy-bourgeoisie sits, the bourgeois opposition is even clearer.Brexit, in fact, expresses the illusion, the utopia, of the petty bourgeoisie and of many impoverished British workers. These sectors think they can rid themselves of the strangling domination of internationalized capital — in order to live in peace with “their” national capital — holding the illusion that they can domesticate it, in both the literal and figurative sense.It is therefore not Germany or France’s evil machinations, nor the British Parliament’s stubbornness, that complicate the Brexit agreement. No, it is the very logic of self-defense for Europeanized capital, merged, without borders, that demands wide room for maneuver and common supranational rules — on top of and at the expense of definitively outdated national interests. Finally, it is the logic of European imperialism which, the more unified it is, the stronger it will feel to compete with the other imperialist powers.Challenges to revolutionariesThis reality poses new challenges to the revolutionary left and the socialist revolution in Europe, challenges that Brexit’s separatism only fogs. European workers must now face capital and a bourgeoisie with a European dimension, with European means of action, united in a common front against labor. Consequently, the class struggle, with all its special national characteristics, must take place today on an European scale, if it wants to attempt what is crucial: the overthrow of capitalism.The delay in establishing international links between the mass of workers living in different countries (European and global) is preventing it from meeting the challenge. And this delay is also responsible for the nationalist and fascist deviations that many proletarians get pulled into — because they see no other way, because they do not believe in their own strength to confront a unified capital that builds a common entity against them.The sympathy that some left-wing forces show for Brexit (in Portugal the Communist Party, for example) suffers from the same illusion that led English voters to want to leave the EU: the naive belief that they could thus be rid of the evils of globalized capital and start dealing with “their” capital and “their” bourgeoisie. This illusion will cost the British dearly because of the sharp drop in living standards, already announced, and the anticipated greater dependence on the USA. It is also expensive, politically speaking, for all European workers who believe in the virtues of a return to the past as Brexit claims to be.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Trump’s COVID-19 Rx:  Less science, more politics

first_imgOn the eve of the Republican National Convention, on Aug. 23, Trump took to the airwaves to announce that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had approved an emergency use authorization for convalescent plasma for COVID-19 treatment. The previous day, Trump had accused the FDA of delaying the rollout of vaccines and therapeutic treatments for “political reasons.”Many scientists and health experts questioned the reversal of the FDA’s previous position, which was that more testing was needed on the impact of the plasma treatment. Even Stephen Hahn, head of the FDA, acknowledged that he had overstated its benefits. Since Aug. 23, doctors in the U.S. have reported cases of COVID-19 reinfection — calling into question the value of plasma treatment.Graph shows number of new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. by day.On Aug. 24, the first night of the RNC, with much fanfare, the Environmental Protection Agency gave emergency approval for the use of the disinfectant SurfaceWise2 by the airline industry and two Texas sports clinics. The agency called it a “major game changer.”Yet health and chemical safety experts charge the disinfectant may do little to protect against an airborne virus, but could be harmful to passengers and airline workers when used in enclosed spaces. When sprayed, it omits potentially hazardous vapors that could linger without proper ventilation.Jennifer Sass, a senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council, stated that Dallas-based Allied BioScience, which produced the cleanser, acknowledged concerns about prolonged skin and eye contact. However, the company did not list  any tests performed about chronic or long-term effects. Sass also voiced concerns that SurfaceWise2’s data sheet states it is toxic to aquatic organisms and kills microbes, including beneficial ones.The “Material Safety Data Sheet” for SurfaceWise2 claims that the percentages of active ingredients are a “trade secret.” But it states that one symptom of exposure might be irritation, which could cause inflamed airways and increased risk of infection by viruses.CDC abruptly changes position on testingThese “emergency” declarations by the FDA and EPA were clearly politically designed to convince voters to ignore Trump’s abysmal record on COVID-19. Meanwhile, the number of cases in the U.S. has surpassed 6 million, and over 186,000 people have died. (worldometers.info, Aug. 29)But just in case people questioned the validity of these declarations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also buckled to Trump’s pressure and abruptly changed its COVID-19 testing guidelines on Aug. 26. After weeks of encouraging people to get tested if they have been exposed to the virus, the CDC now claims public testing might not be necessary unless people show symptoms of the disease.This stunning CDC reversal comes just as more schools are reopening, many with in-person instruction which potentially risks the exposure of millions of children, young adults, and education and other school workers.Recent studies show that while young people are less likely to exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, they may carry higher viral loads and are more likely than adults to transmit the disease to others. CDC data has linked 40% of COVID-19 infections to individuals who test positive yet show no symptoms.While the Trump administration’s testing coordinator Admiral Brett Giroir, Assistant Secretary for Health, denied any intervention from Trump in the CDC reversal, it is undeniable that with only 66 days left before the Nov. 3 election, this move benefits Trump.In June, Trump falsely claimed that testing was the cause of a recent surge of cases in the U.S. At a controversial rally in Tulsa, Okla., he told supporters: “When you do testing to that extent, you’re going to find more people; you’re going to find more cases. So I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down, please.’” (nbcnews.com, June 20)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

It followed an amendment to the Children’s Act, which had previously prevented the family speaking publicly about the case.Brooklyn was beaten and stabbed to death by his half uncle, Paddy Dillon, (28), with an address in Moyross, in November 2019. Dillon pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to life in prison last October.Brooklyn ColbertWayne Colbert, a player manager with Prospect FC, said his involvement in sport has helped distract him from his son’s barbaric killing: “It helps massively, I’ve set up a thing on Facebook for a group of local lads, 12 to about 20 years old, there’s around 14 of us and we go out four days a week and do weights in the park, running sessions, boxing classes.”“I suppose I’m kind of mentoring them, they knock on my door any time they need me, I’m big into fitness and Brooklyn used to come out with me all the time, he’d do 4km runs with me,” he told the Irish Daily Mail.Mr Colbert, a former Irish junior international who played soccer for Limerick FC, Athlone Town and Shamrock Rovers, said he and Brooklyn were closely bonded through their love of Liverpool FC: “He looked up to me and that really made me proud, even talking about it now makes me smile.”“He’d be in the front seat of the car and we’d drive around, talking about soccer, the closeness between us sometimes I was taken aback by it.”Sonia Aylmer told the Limerick Post she also hopes to organise a counselling service for others suffer similar horrors of loosing a child.Not being able to talk about her son publicly was “like loosing Brooklyn all over again, in fact it was like he never existed”, she said.“Brooklyn was a very placid child, very fun loving, funny, a very good friend, a good neighbour, protective and kind, he really left a lasting impression on everyone he met.”Over €6,000 has been raised for Temple Street children’s hospital through Brooklyn’s family.Online donations to the fund can be made at https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11402086_in-memory-of-brooklyn-colbert.htmlcenter_img WhatsApp TAGSBrooklyn ColbertKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Post WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Email Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limerick Advertisement Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live last_img read more
