Today, Congresswoman Deborah Ross (NC-02), North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) Chairwoman Bobbie Richardson, and local faith leaders held a press conference to support their commitment to protect access to safe and legal abortions for North Carolinians. after a draft SCOTUS decision was published outlining their plan to overturn Roe v. Wade.

President Biden, Governor Cooper and Democrats are fighting for everyone to have the power to control their own body, life and future. Meanwhile, the reported Supreme Court draft opinion revealing that conservative justices are set to overturn Roe v. Wade is a direct result of Republicans’ relentless war on health care and the right to choose — the latest example of the GOP’s MAGA agenda. Republican candidates for the US Senate in North Carolina have made it clear that they will also support efforts to restrict reproductive freedom.

“This weekend, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made it clear that a federal abortion ban could be next on the Republican MAGA agenda. Republicans have tried for decades to portray the anti-abortion movement as a religious movement. As a woman of faith, the Bible teaches me that even Jesus gives us the choice to choose him. So who are we to take away the choice of women in deciding their health care? The Bible also teaches me to love your neighbour. For me, that means making sure they have food on their table, adequate clothing and housing, AND the freedom to make their own choices about their future,” said NCDP President Bobbie Richardson.

“I know from decades of marching, organizing, advocating and governing that there are many leaders in our state who are dedicated to rolling back women’s right to choose. As the leaders of our faith community, including those who join us here today, can tell you, many people in the church are passionately committed to ensuring that women can make their own choices about care. health. For us to withstand the inevitable increased attacks on women’s health and a host of other freedoms that are also at stake, people need to get out and vote,” said MP Deborah Ross (NC-02).

“A woman’s right to bodily autonomy and reproductive rights are issues of justice that require a spiritual response. Choosing to have a child can be a sacred choice. And choosing not to have children can also be a sacred choice. One of the tenets of the Christian faith is the concept of free will. God created mankind as rational beings granting each person the dignity to control their own actions. To control a woman’s right to decide what is good or bad for her body – her property,” said Pastor Nancy Petty of Pullen Baptist Church.

“We are in a furnace as a democracy. As I drove here today, I thought of those three Old Testament Hebrew boys who were thrown into a furnace because they were willing to stand up for their faith. There are many today who pontificate on the issue of reproductive rights – who think it should not be tolerated. And then there are those who believe that a woman should have the right to choose. If women are denied the right to choose – and no matter which path they choose – what is important is that they have the legal right to make the choice themselves,” said NCDP Interfaith Caucus Chair Rev. Dr. Paul McAllister.

“Muslims of all genders are directly affected by legislative decisions that restrict essential access to the care, resources and services we all need for our reproductive lives. We know that 55% of Muslims in the United States think abortion should be legal in all or most cases. And to be very clear – Muslims have and always will seek abortion care. They – like everyone else – have unwanted pregnancies, pregnancy complications and other circumstances that lead them to decide to have an abortion,” said Lela Ali, Muslim Organizing Program Specialist at Planned Parenthood Votes South Atlantic.

On Europe Day, the Presidents of the European Parliament, Commission and Council received the final report with proposals for EU reform.

During a closing ceremony today in Strasbourg, the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, on behalf of the Presidency of the Council, President Emmanuel Macron, and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, received from the co-chairs of the conference executive committee the latest report on the results of the conference.

This unprecedented year-long journey of discussions, debates and collaboration between citizens and politicians resulted in a report centered on 49 proposals comprising concrete objectives and more than 320 measures for the EU institutions to follow under nine themes. : climate change and the environment; health; a stronger economy, social justice and jobs; the EU in the world; values ​​and rights, rule of law, security, digital transformation, European democracy, migration, education, culture, youth and sport. The proposals are based on recommendations made by citizens who have come together in European Citizens’ Panels, National Citizens’ Panels and contributed their ideas to the multilingual digital platform.

Citizens – especially young people – are at the heart of our vision for the future of Europe. They directly shaped the outcomes of the Conference. We are at a decisive moment in European integration and no suggestion of change should be ruled out. We must not be afraid to unleash the power of Europe to improve people’s lives.

— Roberta Metsola, President of the European Parliament

Through the crises that we have gone through collectively in recent years, Europe has changed. We must continue this development and ensure that the Union lives up to the aspirations and expectations expressed by the citizens. The Conference on the Future of Europe, which we are closing today, is a unique exercise and unprecedented in its scope, a breath of fresh air for our continent. Its conclusions constitute a very rich source of proposals, which each institution must examine within the framework of its competences. The Council will have the opportunity to express itself in the coming weeks. As this exercise draws to a close under the French Presidency, I thank the previous Presidencies for their commitment and look forward to transmitting the follow-up to be given to the conclusions of the Conference to the Czech and Swedish Presidencies.

— Emmanuel Macron, French President

Democracy, peace, individual and economic freedom. This is what Europe stands for today as war rages on our continent once again. This is at the heart of the Conference on the Future of Europe. The European Union must continue to meet the expectations of European citizens. Today, their message was heard loud and clear. And now it’s time to deliver.

— Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission

Over the past year, through a multitude of events and discussions organized across the EU, national and European citizens’ panels, plenary meetings as well as exchanges on the dedicated multilingual digital platform, the conference has become a real open forum to discuss the Europe we want to experience. It has enabled a transparent, inclusive and structured debate with European citizens on issues that are important to them and to their future.

Next steps

The three institutions will now examine how to effectively follow up on these proposals, each within its area of ​​competence and in compliance with the Treaties.
A feedback event will be held to inform citizens in fall 2022.

Background

The Conference on the Future of Europe was a new and innovative process, a bottom-up exercise allowing Europeans to express themselves on what they expect from the European Union. European citizens of different geographical origins, genders, ages, socio-economic backgrounds and/or educational levels took part in the Conference, with young Europeans playing a central role.

The governor of California will hold a press conference on access to abortion https://guwiv.com/the-governor-of-california-will-hold-a-press-conference-on-access-to-abortion/ Wed, 04 May 2022 15:58:44 +0000 https://guwiv.com/the-governor-of-california-will-hold-a-press-conference-on-access-to-abortion/ LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Calif.

LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Calif. (KTXL) — Governor Gavin Newsom held a press conference Wednesday in front of a group of Planned Parenthood supporters where he discussed the state’s response to the Supreme Court’s leaked draft opinion. of the United States that would overthrow Roe v. Wade.

Newsom began the conference by saying that he believed that a rollback of abortion access protections would only be the beginning and that other protections granted at the federal level by the Supreme Court could be the following.

“Do you think a second same-sex marriage is safe in the United States of America? Leave me alone. You heard a senator from Indiana, a senator from the United States, not retired… start talking about Loving vs Virginia,” Newsom said, referring to Senator Mike Braun who suggested in March that the legality of interracial marriage should have been left to the states.

Newsom also reaffirmed a plan his office briefly outlined in a joint statement with leaders of the California legislature in which lawmakers said they intended to amend the state’s constitution to protect access to abortion.

“Although it’s been well established in statutes since 2002 that we’re a state of reproductive freedom, we’re going to enshrine that, codify that as we should in the state constitution,” Newsom said. “…And we’ll present that to voters in November.”

Newsom said he was bracing for a Supreme Court ruling that could affect access to abortion before the leak.

“We did not sit passively. We anticipated – unfortunately – we anticipated this. … We had a meeting, I think, six or seven months ago. We explained that and not one – everything that happened happened,” Newsom said. “I guess we just didn’t know it was (Judge Samuel) Alito. We knew he was one of them. So we got ready. We have done more to be able to do better. Protect the health, protect the safety of women and girls, especially those of color.

The governor said California would work with other state leaders to protect access to abortion and highlighted issues that people seeking abortions in his own state might face.

“Even in California, even in California, women and girls still have to travel long distances to access their reproductive rights,” Newsom said. “Even in California, even in California, even if we change it, there are still women and girls who cannot afford co-pay for procedures and care. This will change in January. Even in California. Can you imagine how many others are suffering in all those other states?

Supreme Court justices appointed by Republican presidents have become the majority on the court after Donald Trump appointed three during his term.

Thwarted by two press clubs, Vivek Agnihotri will now hold a press conference at the hotel https://guwiv.com/thwarted-by-two-press-clubs-vivek-agnihotri-will-now-hold-a-press-conference-at-the-hotel/ Wed, 04 May 2022 05:53:10 +0000 https://guwiv.com/thwarted-by-two-press-clubs-vivek-agnihotri-will-now-hold-a-press-conference-at-the-hotel/ In a week marked by conversations about press freedom, communal violence in Jodhpur, Modi’s visit to Europe and a worrying power crisis across the country, social media was abuzz with something quite different.

In a week marked by conversations about press freedom, communal violence in Jodhpur, Modi’s visit to Europe and a worrying power crisis across the country, social media was abuzz with something quite different.

Who at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club had agreed to host director Vivek Agnihotri at the club’s premises in Delhi – before the club itself callously canceled the event? Did the Press Club agree to host Agnihotri afterwards before also withdrawing? And who is Agnihotri’s Zee Studios contact who organized the event in the first place?

According to Agnihotri himself, everything will be revealed on May 5.

Confused? Let us explain.

Agnihotri tweeted a video on May 3 claiming that an “unusual, shocking and extremely undemocratic thing” had happened.

“I was the victim of a hate campaign,” he said, “and my free speech was banned by the free speech watchdogs – the media.”

Agnihotri said a few days earlier that the Global Kashmiri Pandit Diaspora had informed him that the Foreign Correspondents’ Club was “very keen” to host him for a press conference on his latest film, The Kashmir Files. The event was reportedly set for May 5 at 7 p.m.

An executive from Zee Studios, the film’s distributor, “flew to Delhi and made all the arrangements”, he said. But then “very powerful media” reportedly “objected” to the press conference, and it was called off.

Stating that “his conscience does not permit this attack on freedom of expression”, Agnihotri said he was instead holding a press conference at the Press Club of India “in the interests of India, democracy, freedom of expression and truth”.

The chairman of the Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Manish Gupta, said Newslaundry that the club’s South Asia section had decided to cancel a “promotional event”. He declined to comment further.

But there was another twist.

Following Agnihotri’s tweet about the event currently taking place at the Press Club, this venerable institution itself tweeted saying that it was “not facilitating any event on May 5th by any individual or organization”.

Chander Shekhar Luthra, the club’s joint secretary, said Newslaundry“We haven’t received any calls to reserve the club’s premises, either in the name of Vivek Agnihotri or the Kashmir Files.”

A member of the Press Club must facilitate the reservation of the premises for a non-member. Luthra said: ‘Either Vivek or someone representing him should have filled in a form… As far as the Press Club of India is concerned, there was no booking for Mr Agnihotri.’

He added: “Just by tweeting, you can’t book space…You can’t just say, ‘I’ll do an open day at the Press Club of India.’ This will amount to intrusion… Our position is very clear – there is no reservation as such by anyone on behalf of Mr. Agnihotri for his cause.

Agnihotri said on Twitter that the Press Club was “lying between its teeth”.

Again thwarted, Agnihotri has just announced that he would hold a press conference on May 5 at the Le Méridien hotel.

When Newslaundry reached out to Agnihotri with questions, he said, “You can join me on my PC on May 5 at 3:30 p.m. at Le Meridien and ask me all your questions.”

When we asked if Zee Studios made the reservation with Press Club on his behalf, he replied, “Will answer all questions with evidence on the 5th.”

Update: This report has been updated with Agnihotri’s tweet on Press Club.

The Security Council’s agenda for May includes a public debate on the link between armed conflict and food insecurity, as well as a presentation on the risks and benefits of using technology to maintain peace and security, said its chairman for the month at a headquarters press conference today.
Linda Thomas-Greenfield (US), recalling that the link between conflict and food security was discussed during her previous Council presidency in March 2021, said Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken would chair a discussion public on May 19, again shedding light on the issue. She added that the United States wants to ensure that growing food insecurity does not create new conflict and instability in fragile states.
On May 23, the 15-member body will host a technology and security briefing. “This is a new and important objective of the Council,” she said, noting that it was high time for him to fully address the impact of digital technology on maintaining international peace and security.
In addition to these two major events, the Council will continue to be seized of the Russian Federation’s war on Ukraine, with a briefing scheduled for May 5 and possibly others to follow, she said. declared.
On Syria, the Council will hold meetings on 20, 27 and 31 May, respectively on its humanitarian, chemical and political files.
She also highlighted an annual debate on the protection of civilians on May 25, saying the event took on added significance, given attacks on civilians in Ukraine, as well as such incidents in Ethiopia, Yemen and Myanmar.
Throughout the monthly programme, her delegation seeks to ensure that the program on women, peace and security is fully integrated. The United States also aims to include civil society speakers at every meeting, if possible, and wants to ensure that all informants are protected from retaliation. Her delegation also strives to ensure gender balance and diversity among guest speakers.
Adding comments in a national capacity, she said the issue of conflict and food security is “personal” as she has witnessed with her own eyes that famine and malnutrition are largely caused by war. It is even more urgent today due to the unreasonable invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation. On May 18, on the eve of the Council’s open debate, the United States will host a Call to Action for Global Food Security at the Ministerial Level at United Nations Headquarters in New York. The event will bring together foreign ministers from many regions and discuss urgent humanitarian needs and explore ways to build future resilience.
At the second signing event, she said peace and security has been completely transformed by digital technology for better or worse. These tools can be misused to spread misinformation, restrict access and deny human rights, but they also offer opportunities to do tremendous good. They can help identify emerging threats, protect civilians and civilian infrastructure, and reconnect and reunite displaced people with their families. They can help prosecutors gather evidence to build war crimes cases, connect refugees with host families and job opportunities, and better prepare peacekeepers to deploy. The event will contribute to the Council’s understanding of the changing landscape.
On Syria, she said the dire humanitarian situation is a priority for the United States. She will travel to the region to take stock of the vital aid being channeled to Syria through the cross-border mechanism.
On May 17, the United States will hold a memorial in the General Assembly Hall for former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
From the outset, Ms. Thomas-Greenfield recognized in her national capacity that 3 May marks World Press Freedom Day, emphasizing that freedom of the press is< la pierre angulaire de toute démocratie >>, fights disinformation and keeps governments in check.
Responding to questions, she said the Secretary-General would intervene in the public debate on conflict and food security. There will be no final document for the two signing events.
Asked about the Security Council’s inability to stop the war in Ukraine and what the United States can do, she said “we are succeeding” in isolating the Russian Federation in the 15-member body, unifying the voice condemning that country in the General Assembly, to introduce Assembly resolutions on humanitarian aid and to suspend the Russian Federation from the Human Rights Council. In the Security Council, “they [the Russian Federation] are on the defensive,” she said, emphasizing that she intended for this to continue.
On reproductive health and rights, the US administration’s position is clear, she said, noting that her country has restored its position on this issue to align with US allies. United Nations and global standards to support women’s health. The United States has restored its funding from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). She denied there was a hangover effect on this issue from the previous administration.
Accused of using double standards on the situations in Ukraine and Palestine, she said the United States took a tough stance on Israel’s security – its right to defend the country against Hamas attacks, but believed that Israel and Palestine equally deserved their rights.

CAGAYAN DE ORO (MindaNews/May 01) – Presidential aspirant Emmanuel Pacquiao offered flowers to the Press Freedom Monument here on Saturday afternoon, April 30, to honor the 201 journalists murdered since 1986.

Pacquiao is the first presidential candidate to visit the Freedom of the Press monument in Cagayan de Oro, built to honor fallen journalists in the Philippines, a country ranked 7and the most dangerous place for journalists in the world according to the 2021 Global Impunity Index released by the Committee to Protect Journalists in October last year.

“Freedom of the press is the face of democracy. We will not allow a return to the days of Marcos (the late President Ferdinand Marcos) when the press was controlled by the government,” Pacquiao later told Community Press.

After the floral offering, Pacquiao attended a coasting press conference with reporters where he responded to topics ranging from corruption and bribery, boxing to his housing program.

He said he considered red-tagging journalists and activists “unconstitutional” and promised it would be reconsidered if he won the presidency.

Pacquiao even extended what would have been an hour-long press conference and took more questions from the local press, unlike presidential candidate Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s press conference last Tuesday.

“Let’s extend this. You rarely have a press conference with me. We are enjoying the time we are here together,” Pacquiao said.

During his visit last Tuesday, Marcos and his media coordinators only invited selected journalists, mostly neophytes, drawing criticism from veteran journalists from Cagayan de Oro who were not invited.

Camp Marcos also asked reporters to submit questions they would ask two days before their press conference.

“That’s what a presidential candidate’s press conference should be like. No discrimination and no questions beforehand,” Jigger Jerusalem, correspondent for the Philippine Daily Inquirer, said of Pacquiao’s press conference.

Pacquiao then went to his rally which was held in the newly inaugurated amphitheater in Divisoria, Cagayan de Oro, becoming the first politician to use the venue after it was closed for several years.

The old amphitheater was the cultural center of CDO and where the late Senator Aquilino Pimentel launched his anti-Marcos campaign during martial law.

Pacquiao called on the public to vote for him on May 9. His crowd of supporters replied, “Daug Ka na! (You will win)”

Pacquiao staff estimated the crowd at 10,000 to 12,000, with people spilling into side streets and watching from nearby buildings.

Cagayan de Oro City Police Director Colonel Aaron Mandia also confirmed the estimate of 10,000 to 12,000 people given the size of the venue like the amphitheater. (Froilan Gallardo / MindaNews)

Titusville, Florida – April 27, 2022: For the first time, Crosley Green and his Crowell & Moring voluntarily The legal team will outline their plans to keep Green free by asking the full panel of 11 judges from the 11and Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a recent decision by a three-judge panel that hangs Green’s freedom in the balance. The impact of their ruling could reaffirm that prosecutors should not withhold evidence directly pointing to a defendant’s innocence and therefore impact how prosecutors handle evidence of all crimes in the future. The court will decide whether or not to grant a reconsideration in the coming weeks. Join the press conference in Titusville, Florida, or via live stream on Facebook Live (details below).

In March, a panel of three judges from the 11and The Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Green, overturning a historic habeas victory in 2018 that overturned his conviction because prosecutors withheld exculpatory evidence that first responders concluded another individual was the killer .

Green now faces the possibility of having his freedom stripped and returned to prison for a murder he did not commit. Green served nearly 32 years in prison, including 19 years on death row in Florida, while steadfastly maintaining his innocence. He was released in April 2021 under house arrest while his case is pending appeal. Lawyers for Green filed a petition with the 11and Circuit Court of Appeals for a rehearing on April 21. Crowell & Moring represented Green voluntarily since 2008 on the recommendation of the ABA Death Penalty Project.

Green’s lawyers will discuss:

  • The significant implications of the panel’s decision, which allows prosecutors to conceal key evidence from defense counsel.
  • What’s next in Green’s long fight for justice as the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals considers whether the full 11-judge tribunal will hear the case again, and what if they don’t? do not.
  • A look at the trail of exonerations and other Brevard County cases from the late 1980s and 1990s that demonstrate a pattern of prosecutorial misconduct.

Green will be joined by members of his family. Green will address:

  • How he handles the possibility of returning to prison.
  • What it’s been like to live outside of prison for the past year as he reconciles with his family, keeps a job and meets his grandchildren for the first time.
  • Green and his family will answer questions.

Diane Clarke, who was a Brevard County Sheriff’s Office patrol sergeant and one of two first responders to the crime scene, will also speak. The court’s opinion endangering Green’s freedom hinges on whether information Clarke had that was not disclosed by the state would have been helpful to the defense. Clarke will explain what she observed and why she told prosecutors another person was the likely killer.

Attribution quotes:

  • “If prosecutors are allowed to conceal and conceal evidence pointing to defense counsel’s innocence, it could impact all future defendants throughout the 11th Circuit – Florida, Georgia and Alabama “, said Keith J. Harrison, partner of Crowell & Moring, voluntarily Green’s advice.
  • “Prosecutors pushed me to plead guilty. But I refused because I was innocent and believed the truth would come out in the justice system. Now it is my faith in God and the love of my family that keeps me going. Everyone should be afraid of what happened to me because it could happen to anyone,” Green said.

TITUSVILLE, Florida., April 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — For the first time, Green Crosley and his Crowell & Moring voluntarily The legal team will outline their plans to keep Green free by asking the full panel of 11 judges from the 11and Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a recent decision by a three-judge panel that hangs Green’s freedom in the balance. The impact of their ruling could reaffirm that prosecutors should not withhold evidence directly pointing to a defendant’s innocence and therefore impact how prosecutors handle evidence of all crimes in the future. The court will decide whether or not to grant a reconsideration in the coming weeks. Take part in the press conference Titusville, Florida. or via live stream on Facebook Live (details below).

In March, a panel of three judges from the 11and The Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Green, overturning a historic habeas victory in 2018 that overturned his conviction because prosecutors withheld exculpatory evidence that first responders concluded another individual was the killer .

Green now faces the possibility of having his freedom stripped and returned to prison for a murder he did not commit. Green served nearly 32 years in prison, including 19 years after florida death row, while firmly proclaiming his innocence. He was released in April 2021 under house arrest while his case is pending appeal. Lawyers for Green filed a petition with the 11and Circuit Court of Appeals for a new hearing on April 21th. Crowell & Moring represented Green voluntarily since 2008 on the recommendation of the ABA Death Penalty Project.

Green’s lawyers will discuss:

  • The significant implications of the panel’s decision, which allows prosecutors to conceal key evidence from defense counsel.
  • What’s next in Green’s long fight for justice as 11and The Circuit Court of Appeals is considering whether the full 11-judge tribunal will hear the case again and what will happen if they don’t.
  • A look at the trail of exemptions and the like Brevard County cases from the late 1980s and 1990s that demonstrate a pattern of prosecutorial misconduct.

Green will be joined by members of his family. Green will address:

  • How he handles the possibility of returning to prison.
  • What it’s been like to live outside of prison for the past year as he reconciles with his family, keeps a job and meets his grandchildren for the first time.
  • Green and his family will answer questions.

will also speak Diane Clarkwho was a Brevard County The sheriff’s office patrol sergeant and one of the two first responders to the crime scene. The court’s opinion endangering Green’s freedom hinges on whether information Clarke had that was not disclosed by the state would have been helpful to the defense. Clarke will explain what she observed and why she told prosecutors another person was the likely killer.

Attribution quotes:

  • “If prosecutors are allowed to hide and conceal evidence indicating the innocence of defense counsel, it could impact all defendants in the future throughout the 11and Tour—Florida, Georgiaand Alabama“said the Crowell & Moring partner Keith J. Harrison, voluntarily Green’s advice.
  • “Prosecutors pushed me to plead guilty. But I refused because I was innocent, and I believed the truth would come out in the justice system. Now it’s my faith in God and the love of my family who keep me going should be afraid of what happened to me because it could happen to anyone,” Green said.

A photo shoot exploits children

This photo leaves me with a big question. Are the children fully aware of abortion, which is the issue being signed off by the Governor? Or did their parents provide no explanation, because children of this age are not yet mature enough to broach the subject of abortion? I believe they are too young, would not understand what they are looking at, and are being used as inappropriate props to promote a law they have no idea or understanding. The parents, the Governor and the politicians did not use their heads to mount this photo or to support this new law.

John Boden, Highland Beach

Banning math books is just the start

I read with concern the Florida Board of Education’s decision to reject 41% of proposed early-grade math textbooks because they supposedly included critical race theory in their teaching methodology. This reasoning is fascinating and inaccurate. Critical Race Theory is a law school subject that explores the potential effect of race in legal decisions. It is not taught at any other level of education. Not in undergraduate universities, let alone in elementary schools.
