The nuns were members of the Missionaries of Charity, the order founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta.Anglican Bishop of Cyprus and the Gulf Michael Lewis has expressed concern following the killing.A Reuters news agency reports that four attackers told a guard they were visiting their mother before storming the home, opening fire with rifles. The guard was killed along with two nuns from Rwanda, one from Kenya and one from India. Two Yemeni women staff and eight elderly residents were also killed. Reports say that the victims were tied up before being killed.A Roman Catholic priest who has been missing since the attack, is thought to be being held captive by the assailant, according to the Agence France-Presse (AFP) news agency.“According to our information, the extremists who attacked the elderly care home in Aden have kidnapped priest Tom Uzhunnalil, a 56-year-old Indian, who was taken to an unknown location,” a Yemeni security official told AFP. “We are aware that no group has yet claimed the criminal attack. . . but information points to the involvement of Daesh,” the anonymous source said.Lewis said that the home cared for around 70 or 80 old elderly people, many of whom were found destitute on the streets.“Doubtless the murderers are from the pernicious ultra-fundamentalist fanatical puritan strand of Islam that encompasses [Daesh] and takes inspiration from the Wahhabi sect,” Lewis said. “Their actions will be met with revulsion by true Muslims, especially native Adenis, whose respect for the works of charity and service by Christians in their city is great.“Hearing of these killings in the middle of the season of Lent, those of us who have often visited the sisters and prayed with them will reflect that all Christians are called to walk with Christ the way of the cross, and that that Way is none other than the way of glory and the gate of heaven.“We join [Roman Catholic] Bishop Paul Hinder [of Southern Arabia], the Christians of the Yemen, and all who know God to be the God of mercy and compassion in praying for the eternal repose of the souls of these faithful departed servants of the Lord.”In a statement, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said that “His Holiness Pope Francis was shocked and profoundly saddened to learn of the killing of four Missionaries of Charity and twelve others at a home for the elderly in Aden. He sends the assurance of his prayers for the dead and his spiritual closeness to their families and to all affected from this act of senseless and diabolical violence.“He prays that this pointless slaughter will awaken consciences, lead to a change of heart, and inspire all parties to lay down their arms and take up the path of dialogue. In the name of God, he calls upon all parties in the present conflict to renounce violence, and to renew their commitment to the people of Yemen, particularly those most in need, whom the Sisters and their helpers sought to serve.“Upon everyone suffering from this violence, the Holy Father invokes God’s blessing, and in special ways he extends to the Missionaries of Charity his prayerful sympathy and solidarity.” Submit an Event Listing An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Prayers offered after killing of Roman Catholic nuns in Yemen Curate Diocese of Nebraska New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Bath, NC AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Albany, NY last_img read more

December fundraising slow for all Apopka candidates

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter  Nelson raised $1,100 in December, which brings his total fundraising tally up to $53,435, $585 more than Kilsheimer. He has spent $27,535.82 on his campaign effort, which gives his campaign $25,899.18 on hand – $654.29 ahead of Kilsheimer. In December, Nelson had six donors (four of them from Apopka) that gave contributions ranging from $50-$500. Four of his donors were individuals, while two were businesses.“We continue to get support from the community,” said Nelson. “I am excited that over 75% of my donors are from Apopka.”Suzanne Kidd, a candidate for the Seat #1 City Commission, maintained her fundraising lead over her three opponents with a $1,550 month. Kidd had 10 individuals and one business donate between $25 and $500. Kidd’s total donations now total $16,686. She has spent $4,373.98 on her campaign, which leaves her with $12,312.02 on hand. Seven of the 11 donors were from Apopka.“Many thanks to my Apopka supporters for your generosity during December!” Kidd said. “While this was a month primarily focused on your family and in helping those in need, your yearning for strong leadership in Apopka government impelled you to also invest a portion of your resources in me. Thank you for welcoming me into your homes as I’ve canvassed your neighborhoods. I hear your love for our City and will follow your wishes to keep Apopka moving forward in a positive, inclusive direction.” Alexander Smith, also running for Seat #1, raised $1,035 in December, which increases his total contributions to $7,056.15. He has spent 5,281.99 on his campaign and has $1,774.16 on hand. Smith had 10 donors last month, and six out of the ten were from Apopka, while eight were individuals and two were businesses. Their contributions ranged from $25-$200. “The month of December was an exciting month for the campaign,” Smith said. “Meeting one-on-one with the citizens of Apopka and listening to them express their love for our great city. Campaign giving is right in step with our budget. The team is committed to not allowing fundraising to be the driving force behind the campaign but the concerns of the citizens.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.  Apopka resident and Seat #1 candidate Gene Knight raised $100 in December from two individuals, both from Apopka. Their contributions were both $50. He has raised a total of $1,577.73 and has spent $1,047.53 on his campaign which leaves him $530.20 in his campaign account. My campaign is going great,” said Knight. “I’m meeting a lot of new people and putting up a lot of yard signs. As for fundraising, the money is coming in when needed. As I have said in the past I’m not looking to raise a lot of money just enough to buy what is needed.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

The VOICE of Apopka PoliticsThe past few weeks were noteworthy in Apopka politics because of the emergence of three new candidates into the Seat #2 election, but it did not crossover into fundraising. As is typically the case, December proved to be the slowest month of the election with no candidate exceeding $2,000 in donations.One thing that did not change, however, is the razor-thin margin between Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer and Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson in total contributions, and cash-on-hand. Kilsheimer raised $625 last month, which increased his total contributions to $52,850. He has spent $27,605.11 and has $25,244.89 in his campaign account. His three donations ranged from $25 to $500. All three of his donors were individuals, while seven two out of three donors were from Apopka.  “We feel great about our ability to communicate our message, which is Keep Apopka Moving Forward,” said Kilsheimer. “Apopka residents don’t want to go back to the days of handshake deals behind closed doors and complacency at City Hall.” Please enter your name here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 January 14, 2018 at 1:09 pm 1 COMMENT LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replylast_img read more

The house designed for the Jonker family is located in a golf estate, east of Pretoria, South Africa. Built on one of the last open stands in an established part of the estate, it is next to a green belt surrounding the golf coarse, but is separated from it by a street. The odd-shaped site had a grove of existing soetdoring (accacia karroo) trees close to the street. This natural feature was retained and dictated the siting of the buildings; it was utilized to create a privacy barrier between house and street also but also to draw the natural landscape opposite the street into the site.Save this picture!© David RossThe owners wanted a minimalist home that would provide separate functional areas for the family members’ activities. The program is split up into the distinct functional zones of the main house, the garage/service building and the outbuilding. The main house contains the family living spaces and bedrooms, while the outbuilding is a home office space on the ground floor and a guest bedroom space on the first floor.Save this picture!© David RossThe outbuilding with its independent functions is placed closest to the street, nestled in the grove of trees, leaving the largest and more private location on the site for the main house.

Remembering Garrett Foster, gunned down marching for Black lives in Austin, Texas

first_imgBy Viktoriya P.Austin, TexasOn July 25, groups of protesters marched in Austin, Texas, for Black lives and in solidarity with Portland activists who are facing repression by Trump’s secret police. It was nearly the 50th day that Whitney Mitchell, a disabled Black woman, and her fiance of 10 years, Garrett Foster, were there. They both consistently marched at Black Lives Matter demonstrations. Foster assisted Mitchell, and he armed himself to protect her and other demonstrators from potential fascist violence.Garrett Foster and Whitney Mitchell at Black Lives Matter protest, June 28, Austin.Based on the video recorded by local journalist Hiram Gilberto, the protesters approached a blocked-off intersection when a blue sedan rushed through the barricades where people were still walking, with the intent of instilling fear in  them. Demonstrators turned toward the vehicle and forced it to stop.Meanwhile, Foster crossed the intersection with Mitchell.  Upon seeing what was happening, he stepped in between her and the vehicle to make sure that she and others weren’t hit.  Five shots rang out from the vehicle, while three additional shots were fired by a random protester toward the vehicle as it drove away. The initial five shots were aimed at Foster. Witnesses said Foster never aimed his rifle at the driver. (Dallas Morning News, July 27) Foster was pronounced dead an hour and a half later.The gunman turned himself in to the police, cooperated with officials and gave his “account” of the events that transpired. Police released the murderer from custody the same night, without naming him or charging him with a crime. Even though Foster’s blood was on the shooter’s hands, the police took his word for what happened.  Officials said criminal charges depend on findings from a further investigation.The bourgeois media and Austin Police Department representatives wasted no time reprimanding and victim-blaming Foster. Both “liberal” and “conservative” news outlets have written their so-called “accounts” of events based on information that has come directly from the perpetrator’s report to the police.On the one hand, there are the anti-gun liberals blaming Foster for carrying a legally permitted firearm to protect his disabled fiancee.  On the other hand, there are the reactionary, neo-fascist pundits who are celebrating his death, while praising the rich white lawyers in St. Louis, Mo., who pointed their guns at peaceful protesters on June 28.Austin Police Chief Brian Manley took the opportunity to reiterate the need for full police funding, citing a rise in vehicular crimes, even though Foster’s murderer was released! These pigs haven’t done anything at all about the vigilantes because they are too busy policing Black and Brown communities. The calls to abolish the police are getting louder and more frequent.Vigil honors fighter for justiceA day later, July 26, protesters, family  members and mourners gathered at the intersection of Fourth Street and Congress Avenue in downtown Austin, the spot where Foster was murdered, and held a vigil in honor of his life. People of all ages, nationalities and genders came to pay their respects to Foster. Families, college students and even bystanders attended the vigil. Barricades with armed volunteer defenders were stationed around the perimeter to make sure every attendee was safe.Candles were lit throughout the blocked-off intersection as people spoke about Foster’s life, his commitment to Mitchell and his commitment to Black Lives. Many people and members of groups spoke, including Patricia Kirven, Mitchell’s mother, and some of Foster’s friends and relatives.  Also speaking were some coordinators of the previous night’s march, who also helped to organize the vigil.  Toward the end, there was a prolonged moment of silence for Foster and his family. Bringing the vigil to a close, attendees knelt with their fists up.Once the vigil concluded, the leaders led an impromptu march that took the same path from the intersection all the way to police headquarters and back. The march was tight and well organized.  It moved continuously to ensure every person’s safety. Armed vigil attendees and volunteer medics rushed to each intersection as marchers passed.  They created makeshift barricades with bikes, scooters, traffic cones and their bodies to make sure no other vehicles tried to recreate the horror of the night before.One vehicle drove through the bike and traffic cone barricades as the marchers passed.  No one was in that area at the time, so no one was hurt. Toward the end of the march, participants placed their candles at the site of the murder, along with signs, flags and flowers to create a memorial for Foster.Militance projected amid griefRevolutionary chants resounded throughout the evening.  They included: “F–k the police!” “One solution, Revolution!” and “Stand Up! Fight Back!” Through the chants, the pain and anger in people’s voices could be heard.Those who preached nonviolence in the face of state and state-sanctioned violence are now looking at other tactics, as the fascist police and their collaborators violently attack them. Many activists who once called for defunding and reforming the police are now looking toward total abolition and liberation of the people.Kirven set up a GoFundMe page for funeral, burial and other expenses, which raised over $107,000 within 24 hours.  That highlighted the support people will give to care for one another during these difficult times.  She wrote about Foster in a heartfelt way on the fundraising page.Kirven described Foster as “a great person, taken away from his fiancee and loved ones,” and said he “always fought against injustice, served in the military and was fiercely protective of his fiancee.”Mitchell and Foster have both been active in the community, feeding the houseless, protesting against evictions and demonstrating for Black lives. They are both shining examples of people who have given their lives and bodies to the fight for justice.  Garrett Foster presenté!The writer attended the July 26 vigil.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

When somebody insults, even perhaps uses abusive language against ‘Hindutva’, that is not an insult to a religion but insult to a political philosophy; thus an offence under Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code is not made out, submitted Dr. Chandrachud. He made these submissions while seeking to quash two First Information Reports (FIR) registered against a law student, who is booked under section 295-A, 153-A, 143, 149 and 448 of IPC, for allegedly holding an objectionable placard during a protest held against the Citizenship Amendment Act at the Government Arts College, Bengaluru.Not Relooking 1995 ‘Hindutva Is A way Of Life’ Verdict: SCAs regards the offence under Section 153A IPC, Chandrachud submitted that the law is well settled that there must be two communities involved. In the instant case, there are no two communities involved; mere insult to one community will not attract the offence under Section 153A IPC, he argued.”No offence under section 153-A and 295-A is made out even if the contents of the FIR are accepted in its entirety”, he argued.Section 153A IPC – Deliberate & Malicious Intent Necessary; ‘Disturb Public Tranquility’ Does Not Mean Normal Law & Order Issues : Supreme Court A bench of Justice Suraj Govindaraj hearing the case posted the matter for further hearing on December 21, after Dr.Chandrauchd sought a short adjournment to place on record the citations relied by him to argue his case. The prosecution also sought for a short accommodation to respond to the plea. The FIR was based  on a complaint registered by the Principal of the College who alleged that a few students had unlawfully assembled in the college premises in December 2019 to stage a protest against CAA. As per the complaint, some individuals were displaying a placard which had  ‘Fuck Hindutva” written on them. The FIR alleged that this message amounted to promoting enmity between communities and religious insult so as to invoke Sections 153A and 295A IPC.The petitioner was earlier granted anticipatory bail by the Sessions Court on Janaury 31, 2020. Later, she approached the High Court seeking to quash the FIRs. It is argued that FIR constitutes an abuse of process as the petitioner was not present at the site of the protest in question. On December 20, 2019 when the alleged protest took place, she was present at her institute for attending another event which was being organized by her. The petition says that though the principal has named some students who were allegedly holding the placards, the petitioner’s name has not been mentioned in the First Information Statement. The charge under sections 143 and 149 of IPC for violating orders issued under Section 144 of CrPc. It is stated that this 144 order has been struck down as illegal by a division bench of the High Court. Next Storylast_img read more
