Business and property owners in Seattle are installing 1-ton concrete blocks on city streets to prevent RVs and homeless encampments from forming or returning to an area."Individual businesses and residents are putting ecology blocks out as taking matters in their own hands because if they call the city and say there are RVs out in front of their business or out in front of their home, they can't do anything about it," business owner JW Harvey told The Seattle Times.Anonymous Seattleites have hauled the massive 1 to 2-ton blocks – known as "ecology blocks" or "eco blocks" – using special equipment outside residential areas and in front of businesses to prevent RVs from parking and homeless encampments from forming. LIKE & SUBSCRIBE for new videos everyday. https://bit.ly/3KBUDSK

It's the definition of gaslighting to tell a woman (or man, friend, or grandparent...) that their regret over abortion is not REAL. It's very real. And it's normal to feel remorse, confusion, regret, doubt, and a host of other negative emotions after participating in the killing of an innocent child. Those in the abortion lobby claiming otherwise are gaslighting the public. If you're experiencing the pain of abortion, organizations like Support After Abortion & Rachel's Vineyard are here to help. The abortion lobby often uses a bogus study called the "Turnaway" study in an effort to backup their claim that abortion regret isn't real. As you might expect, the Turnaway study is full of holes — and in this episode of How To Win This Week, we debunk that study and draw attention to some integral research finding the opposite: That abortion induces regret and causes psychological harm to those involved.

A Seattle activist was upset that the city swept a dangerous encampment. In response, she offered up her own home for the homeless to sleep in. Hours later, she reportedly regretted that decision.City workers cleared an encampment in SoDo that created dangerous, untenable conditions for both residents and nearby businesses. Activists, socialist city councilwoman Tammy Morales, and staff at The Seattle Times complained this move was taken “during a heatwave.” Apparently, you're supposed to keep vulnerable people outside to suffer in the scorching heat, rather than bring them into air conditioning, offering them access to electricity and clean, running water.LIKE & SUBSCRIBE for new videos everyday. https://bit.ly/3KBUDSK

GBV remains among SA's biggest obstacles in achieving gender equality – Ramaphosa

Polity.org.za Audio Articles

Play Episode Listen Later Aug 8, 2022 4:04


In his weekly letter to the nation on Monday, President Cyril Ramaphosa pointed out that the prevalence of gender-based violence (GBV) remained one of the country's biggest obstacles in achieving full and meaningful gender equality. He said as South Africans worked together to tackle GBV, progress made by the country in building a non-sexist society must not be diminished. On Tuesday South Africa will celebrate Women's Day, which commemorates the day in 1956 when thousands of women marched on the Union Buildings to protest against apartheid pass laws. Activists such as Rahima Moosa, Lilian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph and Sophie Williams de Bruyn marched up the steps of the Union Building amphitheatre on that historic day. “We must celebrate the many achievements of women in our country and pay tribute to those who continue to lead the way. As we work to achieve gender equality in all areas of life, we must acknowledge that we have come a long way. And that we still have much further to go,” Ramaphosa said. He compared the 1956 Women's March to today's efforts to end violence against women and children. He said equal rights for women was an important goal of national liberation and added that ending violence against women and children was vital to the country's national progress. “This is not a problem of women, but a problem of men. And it is men who are being called upon to be part of the solution, starting with their own attitudes and conduct,” Ramaphosa added. ACHIEVEMENT OF GENDER EQUALITY According to South Africa's progress towards the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, the country is on an upward trend towards the achievement of gender equality, Ramaphosa said. He stressed the importance of representation of women. “Today, women can advance in any occupation, study in a place and field of their choice and own businesses. Thanks to employment equity legislation and other policies of the democratic government, women's representation in the workplace, in government and all of society continues to grow,” he noted. Specifically, he pointed to a growing number of women in Parliament, with 46% of National Assembly members being women. He stated that 62% of the entire public service was female and 44% of senior management posts were filled by women. He further pointed out government's accelerated agenda for advancing women's representation by appointing the first woman to head the National Prosecuting Authority and the first female Directors-General in the State Security Agency and the Presidency. Last week the first female Deputy National Commissioner of the South African Police Service was appointed and last month Justice Mandisa Maya was appointed as South Africa's first female Deputy Chief Justice. Out of 256 judges on the Bench, 114 were female and nearly half of all magistrates were female. Ramaphosa noted that South Africa came from a painful past where young black women and girls had limited prospects. He said it was an inspiration to see black women occupy posts as ministers, judges, business leaders, engineers and fighter pilots. As women in the US fight for their rights to contraception and safe abortions, Ramaphosa pointed out that South African women have access to contraception and safe termination of pregnancy in the public health system. He added that the democratic State had worked to repeal all laws that discriminate against women, and over the years the courts had ruled against policies and practices that unfairly discriminated against women on the grounds of motherhood or sexual orientation. “We have laws that protect women against harassment in the workplace and that address modern forms of victimisation of women. Women in traditional communities have rights to own land, to enter into contracts and to inherit,” Ramaphosa said.

Sam and Emma host Dannel Jurado of Kickstarter United to discuss their unionizing effort from the ground. Then, they are joined by Vincent Vertuccio, a student climate organizer with Now Or Never, who is planning to protest the Congressional Baseball Game this Thursday. Before that, Sam and Emma dive into Donald Trump getting back into the campaign trail, Schedule F and the melding of the state and corporation. Then, Dannel Jurado joins as he, Emma, and Sam dive right into where the Kickstarter Union is at in their fight (the answer being wherever they'd like to be thanks to a right to remote work), and how their work changed (for the better) as Biden's Administration took over the NLRB – walking through the horrors of Trump's board as well. Next, Jurado explores how the union has been able to completely change the levels of transparency and representation when it comes to employee/management relations, the role management has played in the fight, and the importance of solidarity. Then Vincent Vertuccio walks Sam and Emma through the preparations for the upcoming Congressional Baseball Game, and – more importantly – the Climate protest being planned by Now or Never, why they chose to target the game specifically, and what the group's non-violent aims are. They touch on other recent congress-adjacent actions, the climate anxiety of Gen-Z and Millenials, and the refusal of Democrats to play hardball. And in the Fun Half: Jordan Peterson asks our corporate overlords to stop succumbing to the alphabet brigade, Charlie Kirk and Lauren Boebert call out the 47 Republicans that didn't vote against the codification of same-sex marriage, and Sam and Emma tackle the idea of Schumer and Biden actually putting legislation on the table.
