Mientras las/os trabajadores y oprimidos están siendo constantemente inundados con personajes como Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders y otros en la carrera para la presidencia, el Partido Workers World – Mundo Obrero contrarrestará todo el alboroto de estas elecciones con su conferencia nacional anual en la ciudad de Nueva York el 7 y 8 de noviembre. El tema principal será “Poniendo la REVOLUCIÓN SOCIALISTA sobre la mesa”.Este tema está diseñado para ahondar sobre una alternativa real para trabajadoras/es, oprimidas/os y activistas sobre lo que se necesita para combatir el racismo institucionalizado, la pobreza y la guerra que está azotando al mundo.Las/os candidatos burgueses, ya sean Demócratas o Republicanos, dirán o harán cualquier cosa – generalmente algo reaccionario- para obtener los dólares que necesitan para ganar las próximas primarias. Eso significa que no van a pronunciar una sola palabra sobre el capitalismo como la causa de toda opresión y desigualdad en EUA y en el mundo.Sólo puede un partido independiente, anticapitalista y multinacional de la clase obrera como el Partido Workers World – Mundo Obrero que ha dicho siempre la verdad clasista desde su fundación en 1959 hasta hoy.Desde finales de la Segunda Guerra Mundial hasta 2007, la clase capitalista de despiadados banqueros multimillonarios y jefes corporativos podía contar con la parte del auge del ciclo económico para rescatar a su sistema de la crisis de sobreproducción. Pero esos días han terminado. Desde que la ola de ejecuciones hipotecarias de viviendas provocó la crisis de 2007-08, el sistema capitalista ha estado en un estado de pesimismo permanente. Ni los billonarios rescates bancarios pudieron revertirla. El reciente desplome de las bolsas mundiales es un indicador. La enorme expansión de las fuerzas productivas ha atrapado al capitalismo en un callejón sin escapatoria. Los capitalistas están tratando de resolver la crisis de su sistema sobre las espaldas de las/os trabajadores, oprimidos y pobres.Ya se trate de la alarmante epidemia de brutalidad policial, incluyendo los diarios asesinatos de jóvenes negras/os y latinas/os, mujeres y personas trans; o la enorme crisis migratoria donde la agresión militar de EUA-OTAN ha obligado a millones de personas – de Siria, Irak, Afganistán, Libia – a abandonar su patria; o trabajadoras/es de bajos ingresos que luchan por $15 la hora y un sindicato; o mujeres de color pobres que luchan por justicia reproductiva; o decenas de millones de personas que luchan en contra del aburguesamiento, encarcelación en masa, deportaciones, ocupaciones, calentamiento global y la austeridad en general – en todos los casos el criminal es el genocida sistema capitalista.Ninguna de estas crisis puede ser reformada bajo el capitalismo. Aunque parezca un objetivo lejano, sólo el socialismo puede resolver la crisis, y sólo a través de una revolución pueden las/os trabajadores y oprimidos ganar el socialismo. Las experiencias en Cuba, la República Democrática de Corea, la antigua Unión Soviética, la Revolución China de 1949 y otros países, han demostrado que el socialismo como sistema económico sólo puede ser realizado por la plena movilización de las masas que extirpan un sistema opresivo que explota inhumanamente su trabajo y sus recursos con el único fin de obtener ganancias.Solo el socialismo puede liberar a las/os trabajadores de esta explotación y comenzar el proceso que permite utilizar su trabajo para satisfacer sus propias necesidades como clase. La construcción de una revolución por el socialismo en el país más industrializado — Estados Unidos — será un gran paso adelante para la caída del capitalismo en todo el mundo.El primer paso en este salto es discutir estas ideas en el marco de un partido político. Estas son algunas de las cuestiones fundamentales que serán discutidas en la conferencia del Partido WW-Mundo Obrero 2015. Sea parte de ese diálogo crítico y oportuno.

A strict approach has to be adopted if we are to eliminate the scourge of female feticide and iniquity towards girl children from our society, the bench headed by Justice Mohan M. Shantanagoudar said while upholding the Madhya Pradesh High Court order dismissing the anticipatory bail application filed by an accused.The accused was charged under relevant provisions of Indian Penal Code, Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971 and under the provisions of the Pre Conception and Pre Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act, 1994 for allegedly conducting the illegal medical practices of sex determination and sex selective abortion.While dismissing the Special Leave Petition, the bench, also comprising Justices Vineet Saran and Ajay Rastogi, referred to the legislative history of the PC&PNDT Act. The court said that the Act was compelled by a cultural history of preference for the male child in India, rooted in a patriarchal web of religious, economic and social factors. Referring to various reports regarding the criminal cases filed under the Act, the bench said that these pernicious practices still remain rampant. It observed:”The unrelenting continuation of this immoral practice, the globally shared understanding that it constitutes a form of violence against women, and its potential to damage the very fabric of gender equality and dignity that forms the bedrock of our Constitution are all factors that categorically establish prenatal sex-determination as a grave offence with serious consequences for the society as a whole.”The court noted that, in the instant case, the investigative team has seized the sonography machine and made out a strong primafacie case against the accused. The court also said that the material on record suggests that she had a more active role in conducting the alleged illegal medical practices of sex determination and sex-selective abortion. From the residence, an ultrasound machine with no registration or license, adopter and gel used in sex-determination, and other medical instruments used during abortion and sex-determination were seized, the bench noted. While dismissing the appeal, the court said:No leniency should be granted at this stage as the same may reinforce the notion that the PC&PNDT Act is only a paper tiger and that clinics and laboratories can carry out sex-determination and feticide with impunity. A strict approach has to be adopted if we are to eliminate the scourge of female feticide and iniquity towards girl children from our society. “CASE: REKHA SENGAR VERSUS STATE OF MADHYA PRADESH [SPECIAL LEAVE PETITION (CRIMINAL) NO. 380 OF 2021]CORAM: Justices Mohan M.

WABC-TV(FAIRFIELD, N.J.) — A New Jersey mother and her son escaped near tragedy on Thursday night when she was attacked by a coyote in a neighborhood park.The mother, 37, was pushing her son through Fairfield Recreational Park in Fairfield, New Jersey, at about 7 p.m. when she was attacked by the animal, according to police. Onlookers tried to alert the woman, who was bit on the leg while the animal knocked over the stroller.“When she turned around basically the coyote lunged at her, bit her in the leg,” Fairfield Police Chief Anthony Manna told New York ABC station WABC-TV. “At that time the stroller turned over. The coyote went after the child and bit him in his leg. As other people were in the park they started to run to assist her. The coyote backed off. The woman was able to right the stroller and tried to flee, but the coyote again lunged — did not get her that time. He then fled into the woods.”The mother and son were taken to an area hospital for treatment. Both suffered only minor injuries.During a search of the area, Fairfield Police Sgt. Frank Tracey spotted a coyote in a nearby backyard.“The coyote turned around and started coming right at me, unfortunately I had to use force to put the animal down,” Tracey said.Police believe it is the same coyote that attacked the mother and son, but can’t know for sure.Coyotes do not generally attack humans, but the Humane Society will test to see if the animal was rabid.An adult male coyote can be about 40 pounds and run over 30 mph.The animal is common in New Jersey, with most sightings in the northwestern part of the state, but they’ve been spotted in every county in the state, according to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.“Although attacks on humans are extremely rare in eastern states, as with any predatory animal they can occur,” according to the Division of Fish and Wildlife.People are being warned to remain cautious in the area and police will patrol the park with rifles on Friday as it is reopened to visitors.

www.monoequip.com Swansea-based machinery firm Mono Equipment hosted an open day at Miller’s Vanguard’s Training facility in Bury earlier this month, to display the latest machinery, designed to increase efficiency, productivity and profit.Among the exhibitors were Mono Equipment, Bakon Food Equipment and Rondo Doge.Mono was promoting its Omega Depositor, which deposits muffins, cupcakes and biscuits, that were then baked on its deck ovens.Ronde Doge displayed its Sheeting and Polyline, which sheets dough, before filling it, rolling it and cutting it into products such as cinnamon Danish pastries.Another machine on display was Bakon’s Ultrasonic Cutter, which is capable of cutting through trays of freshly baked custard slices, without the blade even touching the product, enabling minimal wastage.Its Enrobing/Finishing machine can also produce a constant flow of fondant icing over a continuously moving conveyor belt of Danish pastries, traditional custard slices and Belgian buns.
Machinery: two lines, each utilising four FlexPicker IRB 360 robots for the picking and stacking of pancakesWhy installed: to improve productivity and hygienic conditions for the production of pancakesHow it came about: recognising the need to improve productivity, the food specialist approached ABB’s channel partner RG Luma – suppliers of industrial automation, special purpose machines and robotic integration – to lend its expertiseWhat it does: speeds up the production line, increasing productivity and reducing labour costsTech spec: the four FlexPicker robots are capable of handling 110 picks per minute to ensure all pancakes are picked and stacked quickly and precisely. The robots are also connected, via conveyor belts, to a standalone, automated hot plate production line that produces large quantities of batter-based productsProblems solved: Turnaround time has been dramatically reduced between products and as a result it can meet its customer’s tight deadlines without delay. The robots have already enabled the firm to absorb a number of overheadsSupplied by: RG LumaTelephone: 01905 753700Website: www.rglumagroup.co.uk
