Episcopalians testify in support of slavery reparations bill in House…

first_img Director of Music Morristown, NJ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Episcopal News Service] The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties held a hearing June 19 on H.R. 40, a bill introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) that calls for the creation of a commission to study and develop reparation proposals for African Americans.Among those serving on the panel of majority witnesses were Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland and Katrina Browne, producer of the documentary “Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North” and consultant for The Episcopal Church as part of its Becoming Beloved Community racial justice and healing initiatives. Also on the panel were actor Danny Glover, author Ta-Nehisi Coates (“Between the World and Me”), Columbia University undergraduate Coleman Hughes and former NFL player and author Burgess Owens. The hearing took place on Juneteenth, which commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas in 1865.Sutton was the only religious leader invited to testify. Last month, the Diocese of Maryland unanimously passed a resolution on racial reconciliation, affirming a pastoral letter from Sutton to the diocese on what reparations really mean (repairing the breach) and how the diocese might move forward together through programs and initiatives to build a better world out of the wreckage of the past.Sutton and Browne talked about the importance of reconciliation, truth telling and healing for the souls of all Americans. Sutton noted that he is often asked, “What do black people want?” His question, in return, is: “What do you want? If you are happy with the state of race relations in America, do nothing. If you are not happy, support the establishment of this commission for discussion and study.” Browne’s closing words were featured today as The New York Times’ Quotation of the Day: “It is good for the soul of a person, a people and of a nation to set things right.”Other testimony focused on what were named as prejudicial government actions that have had deleterious effects on the well-being of the African American community. Practices such as redlining, predatory lending and mass incarceration were mentioned by witnesses as examples of modern oppression of African Americans. All of these issues, according to Coates, have to do with “the institution in the American mind that black people are necessarily inferior,” which was normalized by slavery.Episcopal Diocese of Maryland Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton greets Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pennsylvania) in the subcommittee’s hearing room. Photo: Carrie GravesRep. Madeleine Dean (D-Pennsylvania) and Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pennsylvania), who are not co-sponsors of the bill, cited their work on predatory lending and environmental injustice, both issues that they say embody current-day societal discrimination against African Americans. Dean quoted admissions from Wells Fargo bank of pushing subprime lending in black communities.In his testimony opposing the bill, Owens contended that reparations victimize African Americans, implying that they do not have the power to be self-made people. Hughes argued that reparations would further divide the country and distract from solving urgent problems facing African Americans today, such as inadequate schools and high rates of incarceration.Other discussion centered on knowing the nation’s past and its importance in guiding future action. Coates wondered why, if people really understood history, would there be statues and flags honoring the Confederacy, whose aim was to destroy the country. Danny Glover quoted James Baldwin, saying, “If we can’t tell ourselves the truth about the past, we become trapped in it.”“The Office of Government Relations represents the policy priorities of The Episcopal Church to the U.S. government in Washington. We do this through our action alerts, meeting with members of Congress, and engaging with Congressional staff. But it is a great opportunity for the Office of Government Relations and for our church when church leadership is asked to testify before Congress and to represent our positions in that forum,” said Director Rebecca Linder Blachly.“In 2006, General Convention called for the establishment of a commission to further explore reparations, and we are gratified to be able to highlight this position and broader efforts in this area on the national stage, and to present the ways we are striving to work together towards restorative justice,” she said.The Episcopal Church has a more recent history of working to acknowledge the past and to discern how it can move forward to repair the breach and heal a broken and divided society. Subcommittee Chair Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee), in introducing Browne, thanked The Episcopal Church for being ahead of Congress in passing an apology in 2006. (Cohen introduced an apology bill in the House of Representatives in 2007, which passed in 2008.)General Convention has passed resolutions to Support Legislation for Reparations for Slavery (2006-C011), Endorse Restorative Justice and Anti-Racism (2006-A127), Study Economic Benefits Derived from Slavery (2006-A123), Reaffirm a Resolution on Truth, Reconciliation and Restorative Justice (2009-A144), and Recommit the Church to Anti-Racism and Request Annual Diocesan Reports (2009-A142).H.R. 40 asks that the United States government do the same. “H.R. 40 calls for the establishment of a commission,” said by Rep. Karen Bass (D-California). “It does not call for checks. To call for money trivializes reparations. Conversation is necessary, and it begins with a commission.”Economics, however, were not left out of the discussion. Economist Julianne Malveaux closed her testimony by asking that any future legislation with economic implications be audited for racial justice.Full coverage of yesterday’s testimony can be found here.– Carrie Graves is the director of communications for the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland.

Springboks compound Wallabies misery with dream start for comfortable win in Port Elizabeth

first_imgSaturday Sep 29, 2018 Springboks compound Wallabies misery with dream start for comfortable win in Port Elizabeth The Springboks went two from two as they backed up their win over New Zealand with a solid performance against the Wallabies in Port Elizabeth, winning 23-12 in front of 41,332 fans at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium. ADVERTISEMENTThe match couldn’t have started better for the hosts as prolific young winger Aphiwe Dyantyi was handed his sixth try in eight Tests when Kurtley Beale swung the ball wide with 20 seconds on the clock.Faf de Klerk then scored to take things out to a 14-0 lead, but the Wallabies fought back with great tries to Reece Hodge and Will Genia, making it a fairly even contest. The Boks led 20-12 at halftime.Handre Pollard added a penalty in a low scoring second half, and despite going a man down to the sin-bin and the Wallabies putting on all sorts of pressure, the Springboks defended manfully to pick up their second win on the trot.Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus said post-match that they weren’t clinical enough with their chances.“I think tonight we created more chances than we did against New Zealand and if we had converted some of those the game would have gone very differently,” said Erasmus.“If we’d taken them we could have given them a hiding. In the past couple of months when we made changes, we lost matches so to make eight changes and beat Australia is something to celebrate and before we start to look at where we need to improve, we should probably enjoy the victory.ADVERTISEMENT“In the second half we didn’t play well but we showed a lot of character once again.“Overall I think the guys are getting the hang of the defensive system but it’s not something that you can get right through talking about it or on the training ground. It’s something you have to make mistakes trying, and learn from those mistakes.”South Africa are second on the Rugby Championship table behind New Zealand, who they will face in Pretoria next weekend.Wallabies coach Michael Cheika said that they managed to create opportunities but didn’t manage to take them. His side now heads to Argentina, where they will face Los Pumas in a week from now.ADVERTISEMENT<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>credit: sanzaar Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News , Springboks Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Jailed journalist to spend total of three years in prison camp

first_imgNews January 23, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Jailed journalist to spend total of three years in prison camp Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing RussiaEurope – Central Asia Sergei Reznik, a journalist and blogger based in the southern city of Rostov-on-Don who has been held since November 2013, was due to have been released in May on completing an 18-month sentence, but a court increased his sentence to three years in prison at the prosecution’s request at the end of a new trial yesterday. This means he will not be released for another 21 months.Three years is the maximum jail term for the charges on which Reznik was convicted –insulting a state representative and making a false statement. He was also sentenced to a two-year ban on working as journalist following his release. His lawyers said they will appeal.Reporters Without Borders condemns the judicial persecution to which this outspoken journalist is being subjected with the aim of silencing him, and calls for the appeal to be transferred to a different jurisdiction so that he can finally get a fair hearing.Reznik became a target for the local elites in Rostov-on-Don because he constantly wrote about their alleged corruption. His first trial, at which he was convicted of bribery, making a false statement and insulting a state representative, was marked by procedural irregularities and violations of his rights.Another Rostov-on-Don journalist who covered corruption, Aleksandr Tolmachev, has been held since December 2011 on a trumped-up charge of extorting money from a businessman.

Reliance was placed on Meera Santosh Pal v. Union of India, (2017) 3 SCC 462, where the Supreme Court held that women’s right to make reproductive choice is also a dimension of personal liberty as understood under Article-21 of the Constitution. The victim in this case was 21 weeks pregnant and as per the existing Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act (MTP Act), medical termination of pregnancy more than 20 weeks old is not permitted. A Division Bench of Justices SK Mishra and Savitri Ratho however referred to the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Amendment) Bill, 2020, pending consideration before the Rajya Sabha, which allows for termination of pregnancies up to 24 weeks. While the Bench acknowledged that the Bill is yet to be passed and cannot be considered as a law, it proceeded to observe, “It is reflected that due to passage of time and advancement of medical technology for safe abortion there is a scope for increasing the outer limit for terminating pregnancy especially for vulnerable women and pregnancy with substantial foetal abnormalities detected late in pregnancy. Further there is also need for increasing access of women to legal and safe abortion in order to reduce the maternal mortality and morbidity caused by unsafe abortion and its complications.” The Bench then observed that India has ratified the Convention for Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 1993 and is under an international obligation to ensure that the right of a women in reproductive choices is protected. It thus stated, “it is no doubt that right to progeny and termination thereof is a fundamental rights which springs from the right to life as enshrined under Article-21 of the Indian Constitution.” The Court also referred to a plethora of cases whereby the Supreme Court had permitted medical termination of pregnancy, even after 24 weeks. In X & Ors. v. Union of India, (2017) 3 SCC 458, medical termination was allowed by the Supreme Court after 24 weeks of pregnancy as it involved grave risk to the life of the Petitioner and possible grave injury to her physical and mental health. Similarly, in X. v. Union of India (2016) 14 SCC 382 medical termination of pregnancy of 23-24 weeks of a Rape victim was allowed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court to save the life of the woman. Inter alia, the Bench emphasized on the need of taking the pregnant woman’s (victim’s) consent for medical termination of pregnancy (Suchita Srivastava & Anr. v. Chandigarh Administration). The Court observed that even though the victim in the case at hand is a minor, as a measure of abundant caution, her consent must be recorded. It recorded the victim’s desire to terminate the pregnancy and allowed the application. The Bench directed the medical board to proceed with the medical termination of pregnancy of the victim, provided that there is no danger to her life. The Court also stated the following reasons for the passing of this order: The unwed mother (victim girl), is a minor and has to undergo the ignominy of an undesirable pregnancy. It will hamper her further physical and mental growth. It will also affect her future education prospects. The social sigma the minor victim will face will be insurmountable in this case as the petitioner and his daughter belong to very humble walk of life. The social sigma the unborn child will face is also a matter of great concern to us as the child will definitely be viewed with disdain and will be looked down upon as an undesirable child by his/ her peers in society. Though law (as per the 1971 Act) does not allow medical termination pregnancy after 20 weeks, the Central Government in its wisdom has introduced a bill for enhancing this period to 24 weeks. From the statement and objects of the reasons of the Amendment Act of 2020, it is apparent that the present development of medical science makes it imperative for the amendment of provision of Section 3 of the Act to extend this permissible outer limit of pregnancy for termination. The Medical committee in this case has also opined that the mental health problem of the victim may have adverse impact on the future of the victim on social ground. The Committee has not recommended for termination in view of Sec-3 of the Act of 1971 but has not stated that termination of pregnancy at this stage will pose any threat to the life of the victim girl. Related News The Rajasthan High Court had recently directed that the “Right to Avoid” has to be read with Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. In this case, a minor was sexually assaulted and as a result, got pregnant. She had approached the District Court for termination of her pregnancy. The District Court deemed her application as non-maintainable as her pregnancy had exceeded 20 weeks. The minor appealed her case to the High Court. The Court in this case, took into account the prospective social stigma, the feeling of remorse and the grave mental condition a victim of rape would undergo if she is asked to continue with the pregnancy against her wishes. The High Court thus allowed her application and held that Right to Life of the victim outweighs the Right to Life of the foetus. The Court also laid down significant guidelines to be mandatorily followed by the authorities involved, which shall ensure that such an unfortunate case is not repeated. The Kerala High Court also held that right to make a reproductive choice is a facet of personal liberty under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. While allowing the termination procedure, the Court directed the doctors to take the tissue of the foetus for DNA identification and to maintain the same intact for future purposes, in view of the criminal case pending against the man. In this case, there was a slight possibility that the child may survive the termination of the pregnancy. The Court noted here that “If the child is born alive, despite the attempts at medical termination of the pregnancy, the doctors shall ensure that everything, which is reasonably possible and feasible in the circumstances and in contemplation of the law prescribed for the purpose, is offered to such child so that he/she develops into a healthy child”.
