Cable also dropped his long-time support for a graduate tax, insisting that it was simply “not feasible” given the parlous state of the country’s public finances. In the run up to the general election, the Liberal Democrats made much of the fact they were the only major political party to oppose any rise in tuition fees. “We will resist, vote against, campaign against, a rise in tuition fees,” Lib?Dem leader Nick Clegg said at the time. But yesterday Cable insisted the Browne report was “on the right lines”. Browne, a former chief executive of BP, has recommended that the £3,290 cap on tuition fees should be lifted, effectively allowing universities to charge as much as they like. However a tapered levy on universities that charge more than £6,000 is expected to stop fees spiralling out of control. If a university charges £12,000 instead of £11,000, it would only keep £250 of the extra revenue, whereas moving from £6,000 to £7,000 would net the institution an extra £600. Proceeds for the levy are expected to help the government underwrite the cost of much higher student loans.But there is likely to be dissent within the Lib Dem ranks. Deputy leader Simon Hughes, a standard bearer for disaffected MPs, yesterday said the report would “not be the last word on policy for funding higher education”.“All the Liberal Democrat MPs are very conscious of the positions we have taken on higher education and the policies we campaigned for at the last election,” he said in a thinly-veiled warning to the party’s leaders. whatsapp Share KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Second annual 96 hours of direct action to reclaim MLK’s radical legacy

first_imgFrom a news release by the Anti Police-Terror Project, Oakland, Calif.Hundreds of people from more than two dozen groupings, in both Oakland and San Francisco, will respond to the call of the Anti Police-Terror Project (APTP) to come together for 96 hours of direct action over the Martin Luther King Day weekend, Jan. 15 – 18. This weekend’s events will culminate in a Reclaiming King’s Radical Legacy March on Monday, Jan. 18, beginning at 11 a.m. at Oscar Grant Plaza (14th & Broadway), Oakland.“We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.” (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1963)Over the last year, in the Bay Area alone, there have been dozens of police murders.  In San Francisco, we have most recently seen the brutal execution of Mario Woods, in addition to police beating a disabled man in front of the Twitter building and racist text messages exchanged between SFPD on-duty officers.   In Oakland, we have seen a string of Black men murdered by police since only June of 2015. In fact, a recent graphic by Mapping Police Violence shows that in 2015, Oakland ranks third in police killings per million people in 60 of America’s largest cities.“Police are the shock troops of gentrification,” said Cat Brooks, co-founder of APTP.  “Mayors give them a mandate: make this city appealing to developers by any means necessary.  City councils fund police and constantly seek to expand their numbers and their powers.  As a result, people of color are being pushed out of cities at unprecedented rates, by an out-of-control rental market, increased police occupation and terrorism against communities of color, as well as crackdowns on those who dare protest these unjust policies as we saw with [Oakland] Mayor Schaaf’s recent attempts at imposing a curfew….“Last year, in partnership with comrades and allies, APTP launched 96 Hours of Direct Action in the Bay Area, and answered a national call to Reclaim King’s Radical Legacy which we didthrough a march that brought over 7,000 people into the streets of Oakland….“A year later, while we are starting to have an impact, we also see that we have a long, long way to go. So this Martin Luther King Day weekend, APTP has called for the Second Annual 96 Hours of Direct Action and Reclaiming King’s Radical Legacy March.  For four days, we will unleash a spectrum of disruptive and creative activity. In the spirit of MLK, these actions willmeaningfully interrupt business as usual, whether that be with direct action, teach-ins, concerts or prayer vigils.”THIS WEEKEND’S SCHEDULE:Friday 1/15: Communities in Oakland and San Francisco will hold actions calling out the rampant gentrification occurring on both sides of the bridgeSaturday 1/16: The Oakland Community will call out the many forms of state terror occurring in The TownSunday 1/17: The people will unite in San Francisco to call out state terror, economic terror and the corrupt city governments that allow it to continueMonday 1/18: Reclaim King’s Radical Legacy March from Oakland to EmeryvilleTHIS WEEKEND’S DEMANDS INCLUDE:The resignation of Mayor Libby Schaaf. Respect our Sanctuary Cities. ICE out of Oakland and San Francisco! No deportations. No arrests. The immediate termination of Chief Greg Suhr. The immediate reallocation of city budgets: reduce police budgets and reallocate those funds to provide for affordable housing that allows Black, Brown and other people of color to remain in San Francisco and Oakland.Brooks continued: “On Monday we will connect the dots between police violence and economic violence — specifically gentrification — with a march at 11 a.m. from Oscar Grant Plaza (14th & Broadway), where the Oakland community has come to call home to civil disobedience and protests.  The march will weave its way through West Oakland where Black residents continue to be displaced at an alarming rate and through Emeryville where Yuvette Henderson was brutally murdered by the Emeryville Police Department and into the Bay Street Mall which is located on a sacred Ohlone Burial Ground; yet another example of how capitalism discards humanity for profit — specifically the humanity of of Black, Brown and Indigenous Peoples.“The Anti-Police Terrorism Project is a coalition of organizations and individuals committed to building a sustainable a replicable mechanism to eradicate police terror from communities of color. We are led by the most impacted communities but are a multi-racial, multi-generational coalition. We meet the third Wednesday of every month at Eastside Arts Alliance at 7:30 p.m.”“We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.” (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1967)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thiscenter_img The immediate termination of Chief Sean Whent.

Lt. Gov. Crouch Looks Back on 2020

After dealing with trade headaches in 2019, the Phase I trade deal with China was signed in January and the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement was set to take effect July 1. Then, just as planting season was underway in March, COVID hit.In April, the two largest meat processors in the state, Tyson Foods in Logansport and Indiana Packers in Delphi, had to temporarily shut down due to COVID. Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch says those closings were a big blow and brought farmers a lot of angst.“I know that (Indiana State Department of Agriculture) Director (Bruce) Kettler implemented weekly calls with BOAH and with our ag stakeholders to be able to stay on top of the situation and worked with the Department of Health to reopen those industries, ensuring that the food supply chain was not be disrupted. And we fared well in Indiana compared to other states.”While the coronavirus brought many challenges, farmers enjoyed suitable weather for both planting and harvesting and are now enjoying higher commodity prices to close out the year. Crouch described 2020 as “interesting” for Hoosier farmers.“While farmers were certainly challenged, they went about doing the business that they do and they continued to stay focused on what it was that agriculture is all about and that is feeding Hoosiers, feeding our nation, and feeding the world.”Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler added that 2020 did bring growth to Indiana’s ag business sector.“You look at things like Advanced Agrilytics, the Elanco Animal Health announcement, Taranis on the ag tech side is coming to Indiana. So, we continue to have businesses that invested here.”With 2020 in the rearview mirror, let’s look ahead to 2021 with Lt. Governor Crouch. How does rural broadband fit into the new state budget?
