E. Mark Stevenson, director del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, emitió la siguiente declaración el 30 de junio en respuesta a la definición de “relación” en el decreto ejecutivo del gobierno de Trump que impide el ingreso al país de [ciertos] ciudadanos extranjeros.Una respuesta a la decisión del gobierno sobre relacionesReverendo Canónigo E. Mark StevensonDirector, Ministerio Episcopal de MigraciónA principios de esta semana, el Tribunal Supremo emitió un fallo respecto al litigio en torno al decreto ejecutivo del Presidente que impide el ingreso al país de ciertos ciudadanos extranjeros y suspende por un tiempo la acogida de refugiados. El Tribunal parecía asumir la posición de que el Presidente tiene el derecho a hacer estas dos cosas, pero que él tiene que tener en cuenta [otro] cierto número de cosas —particularmente las relaciones— a la hora de aplicar una política. Yo escribí en ese momento que deberíamos esperar  a que se organizara la logística. No esperaba que la organización se convertiría en un instrumento para desmembrar las relaciones y para seguir propagando un relato falso de personas que han huido de la violencia y la persecución.El tribunal estableció como norma respecto al ingreso permisible la idea de la necesidad de una existente y auténtica relación dentro de EE.UU. [Los magistrados] pusieron el obvio ejemplo de la familia, pero también citaron relaciones con entidades que son formales, documentadas e integradas en el curso ordinario de los acontecimientos. Si bien no estoy de acuerdo con este fallo en otras partes, al menos me consolaba saber que el más alto tribunal del país reconocía que aquí estaban en juego  personas reales, vidas reales y relaciones reales.En el núcleo de mi fe cristiana está el concepto de que la relación es importante. Entiendo que Dios es una relación perfecta, una Trinidad de personas. Entiendo que debido a que los seres humanos fallamos en nuestras relaciones de unos con otros y con Dios, Dios tomó las medidas necesarias  para reparar esas relaciones y nos llama a hacer lo mismo. Nuestro creador llega al extremo de encarnarse en la persona de Jesús para darnos un ejemplo de la manera de tratarnos mutuamente, de cómo sacrificarnos los unos por los otros; y lo más importante, de cómo amarnos los unos a los otros a toda costa. Sí, las relaciones son importantes.Hemos venido a enterarnos a última hora que la Administración ha decidido reconocer una norma diferente. Nada menos que el gobierno de EE.UU. mismo tiene una relación existente, formal y documentada con miles y miles de refugiados que ya se han sometido a una extenso [proceso de] investigación para venir a nuestras costas, investigación mucho más minuciosa y exhaustiva de las que han enfrentado cualquier otro grupo o individuo. Habiendo aprobado esa investigación, a estos refugiados les dieron garantías de que serían acogidos por agencias de reasentamiento para [iniciar]| una nueva vida. Y sin embargo, la Administración ha dicho que esta relación carece de importancia, que la palabra empeñada por nuestro gobierno carece de importancia.La Administración también ha decidido que la relación de abuelos y nietos carece de importancia. Yo tengo nietos. Nadie puede decirme que esas relaciones no son importantes. Si me cree nada de lo que digo, créame al menos esto: si ellos estuvieran en peligro, yo movería montañas para salvarlos.La Administración ha elegido un camino demasiado estricto que carece de compasión y desconoce las relaciones. No tiene que haber hecho eso.

Poor People’s Campaign, lawmakers unveil sweeping resolution to tackle poverty

Barbara Lee of California speaks about a new resolution titled “Third Reconstruction: Fully Addressing Poverty and Low Wages From the Bottom Up” on May 20, 2021 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Photo: Jack Jenkins/RNSShe was joined by co-sponsor Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., who, like Lee, discussed the resolution on the House floor on Wednesday.“Let us remind ourselves that we are all better off when we are all better off,” said Jayapal, a chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and a member of the Congressional Freethought Caucus.She said as liberal lawmakers work to pass legislation in the future, “everything we do has to be centered on how we lift up the poor and eradicate poverty.”Poor People’s Campaign officials told Religion News Service the resolution is set to include an extensive list of proposals that were discussed at the news conference and closely mirror long-standing goals of the activist group. They include raising the federal minimum wage, creating a federal jobs program, scaling back military spending, instituting a wealth tax, enacting immigration reform, passing legislation that would expand and protect voting rights and “measuring poverty accurately.”The resolution is evidence of the growing political influence wielded by the Poor People’s Campaign, which has spent several years working to frame poverty as a religious and moral issue. The reference to a “third reconstruction” is an homage to an argument often invoked by campaign co-chair the Rev. William Barber II: that after laws passed during two reconstructions helped uplift Black Americans and others — the first after the Civil War and another catalyzed by the civil rights movement of the mid-20th century — the United States is in need of a third reconstruction to bring about racial equality and economic justice. Barber championed the idea in his 2016 book, and the concept has since been repeated by various scholars and prominent writers such as the Atlantic’s Adam Serwer and Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne.

Rashida Tlaib of Michigan speaks during the unveiling of the resolution. Photo: Jack Jenkins/RNS“(Eradicating poverty) is going to require the only thing that’s ever worked in this country to really distribute power, which is a mass nonviolent movement,” Raskin said. “I want to contrast that with what we experienced on Jan. 6, which was a violent insurrection. I want to thank these two great leaders — Rev. Theoharis and Rev. Barber — who are showing America how you actually make constructive change. You don’t knock down the windows and beat up the cops and storm the Capitol and overthrow the election. You organize for the election, to defend the voting rights of the people and mobilize a mass turnout to win.”He added: “Violence doesn’t work, as I hope we proved to our friends on Jan. 6.”In a separate interview with RNS, Barber expressed excitement about the potential implications of the resolution.“This is huge,” he said. “We haven’t had an omnibus vision put before the Congress to say, ‘Listen, if you want to talk about poverty … here are the actual steps.’ … You haven’t had this kind of focus with the power of these kinds of congresspersons.”Barber suggested the proposal’s sweeping nature is reminiscent of the Green New Deal, another legislative framework introduced by liberal Democrats that quickly became a central point of conversation for lawmakers concerned with environmental legislation.“This week is Pentecost, and every now and then there must be a kind of reconstruction — a Pentecost moment — where all the silos (of activism) come together and understand that we have to push all of it forward at one time,” he said. “That’s the moment we’re in.” Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Poor People’s Campaign co-chair the Rev. William Barber II speaks during the announcement. Photo: Jack Jenkins/RNSBarber, flanked by Poor People’s Campaign co-chair the Rev. Liz Theoharis, reiterated the idea during Thursday’s news conference.“We know what we have to do: We must have a third reconstruction to fully address poverty and low wealth from the bottom up,” he said.Among the lawmakers spotted in attendance — all of them liberal Democrats — included Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri, Rep. Sara Jacobs of California, Rep. Gwen Moore of Wisconsin, Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, Reps. Danny Davis and Jan Schakowsky of Illinois and Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.Some, such as Jacobs, invoked their faith while expressing support for the resolution, arguing that the cause of combating poverty is difficult but just.“In my faith tradition, we have a saying: Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief,” said Jacobs, who is Jewish. “Love justly now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to finish the task, but neither are you free to abandon it.”Bush, who is a pastor as well as a Congress member, argued that “poverty is a policy choice” before declaring: “With this resolution, we’ve come together as lawmakers and advocates, as people of faith and as people of conscience, because we choose affirming life over inflicting violence.”Others, such as Tlaib, heaped praise on Barber and Theoharis, thanking them for “bringing your faith forward.” Similarly, Raskin, a co-chair of the Freethought Caucus who oversaw the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, centering on the Jan. 6 insurrection, applauded the activism of the Poor People’s Campaign by drawing a distinction between its nonviolent protest tactics and the methods of those who attacked the Capitol.

Photo: Jack Jenkins/RNS[Religion News Service — Washington, D.C.] Lawmakers and leaders of the faith-based Poor People’s Campaign unveiled a sweeping new resolution on May 20 designed to eradicate poverty in the United States, with activists touting it as a broad-based legislative framework that hopes to do for poverty what the Green New Deal proposes to do for environmental issues.Speaking to press at the Capitol, lawmakers said the resolution, titled “Third Reconstruction: Fully Addressing Poverty and Low Wages From the Bottom Up,” was designed to address a wide range of issues, from wages to voting rights to climate change.Rep. Barbara Lee of California said the omnibus resolution, which will be formally introduced next week, was the result of a years-long process that has culminated in what she called a “profound and moral document, but also a practical, progressive document.”“We’re calling on Congress and the Biden administration to develop a legislative framework to realize a third reconstruction to fully address poverty and low wages from the bottom up,” said Lee, who chairs the Majority Leader Task Force on Poverty and Opportunity.

Photo: Jack Jenkins/RNSRaskin said resolutions such as the one unveiled Thursday are statements of “visionary aspiration” that “set the contours of a direction we want to go in.” Among other things, the resolution provides the intellectual basis for future legislation on a range of topics — although the likelihood of achieving bipartisan support for many of the proposals is unclear.But Barber, ever the activist, said the mere existence of the resolution can serve as an advocacy tool.“The resolution lays out the resolve (lawmakers) must have, but the resolution also tells the resolve people have,” he said. “The resolution will be our mobilizing and our organizing guide. … If we ever have to have pray-ins or sit-ins or nonviolent actions or people staying in the Capitol, and they ask ‘Why are they doing it?,’ well, they said in 2021 it was time for a third reconstruction.”This story was originally published by Religion News Service and is republished here with permission.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWindowsVEKAWindows – SOFTLINE 82 ADText description provided by the architects. The building “Carmen Martín Gaite” is the first one of the Getafe Campus extension of the Madrid Carlos III University. Our arrangement, winner of the urban planning contest, lays the buildings on both sides of a linear park that organizes the pedestrian traffic of the campus. This first building settles the front of Madrid Street, connecting itself by means of a walkway to the building already standing on the plot and making it possible to cross the building in its central part through a big foyer that connects the new park with the rest of the campus. Two storeys are organized on each side of this foyer, the Humanities library on one side and the lecture rooms on the side that is closer to the pre-existing lecture hall building. Over these, the departmental zone is organized on one storey.Save this picture!© Francisco BerreteagaThe building design is sustained on our engagement with innovation and sustainability, as well as on our conviction that these two go hand in hand. On the one hand, as opposed to an educational architecture that is traditionally rigid, systematic and repetitive, we take sides for a flexible, diverse and humanized architecture. An architecture tending less to be a reflection of the institution’s authority and more attentive to provide services to teachers and students, creating spaces for diverse encounters where a great number of new models of learning and research can be accommodated. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanOn the other hand, the whole building responds to the growing commitment of all the parties towards the environmental sustainability. During the project and construction phases, countless sustainability measures have been incorporated, with the result that a degree of excellence has been achieved that had not been reached in Spain until now by an educational centre. It will be the first one of its kind to obtain a LEED Certificate and it will be in the highest grade: PLATINE LEED. Save this picture!© Francisco BerreteagaThe process of conceiving the building has constituted a deliberate pendular movement between the confidence in the system and the repetition, on the one hand, and the search for exception and diversity on the other hand. System and repetition, on their own, provide a reassuring coherence and an economy of means, at the same time as they offer an intense flexibility. On the other hand, exception and diversity humanize architecture and make the user free to choose among multiple possibilities of use, which awards him a leading role. Save this picture!© Francisco BerreteagaThus, the bays repeat a well-studied modulation that solves with efficacy the division into big or small lecture rooms and offices. However, these bays bend or twist looking for visual effects, adapting themselves to the surrounding spaces and enhancing the communication spaces. Save this picture!Section Save this picture!© Francisco BerreteagaThe structure is systematically translated to the façade so as to to provide flexibility to the bays. Concrete pillars are placed at a distance of 2.20m from each other and the 11.40 span is solved by means of posttensioned slabs, Nevertheless, the pillars disappear behind the folds of the ventilated ceramic façade, to the point that in some places, such as in the principal access, the plates seem to float weightless. Save this picture!© Francisco BerreteagaThe façade, extraordinarily systematic, repeats the same plates, ceramic pieces and windows throughout all the building. However, the windows are scattered in an apparently disorderly manner solving with efficacy the illumination of the different uses and enhancing the desire to show the diversity proposed by the design.  The extensive use of few materials in all the building is explored up to their last possibilities, requiring qualities that will allow them to respond in an attractive and effective manner to very different situations. Two ceramic materials are a fundamental part of this building’s architecture.Project gallerySee allShow lessTall Tinder: Are Wooden Skyscrapers Really Fire Safe?ArticlesExhibition: Where Architects LiveEventProject locationAddress:UC3M – Campus de Getafe, Getafe, Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

No progress in press freedom situation in year since Raúl Castro took over

first_img News October 12, 2018 Find out more Help by sharing this information CubaAmericas Today’s “26 of July” revolutionary celebrations in Cuba coincide with the completion of Raúl Castro’s first year as acting president, standing in for his still-hospitalised brother. There has been no change in the human rights situation on the island in the past year. CubaAmericas RSF_en October 15, 2020 Find out more May 6, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Cuba Receive email alerts There has been no improvement in the human rights and press freedom situation in Cuba since Raúl Castro took over from his older brother Fidel as acting President of the Council of State a year ago, on 31 July 2006, Reporters Without Borders said as Cuba today celebrated the 54th anniversary of a rebel attack on the Moncada Barracks.With Fidel Castro still hospitalized, Raúl presided over today’s ceremonies, which commemorate an armed action that is regarded as the first step in a revolution that led to the overthrow of Fulgencio Batista’s dictatorship six years later.Since Raúl became acting president, three journalists have been imprisoned and some 40 others and been subjected to searches, summonses for questioning by the political police, physical attacks or threats.“One dictatorship succeeded another in the 1959 Cuban revolution,” Reporters Without Borders said. “And now, the first year of Raúl Castro’s presidency has not resulted in any significant change either. The repressive methods have evolved slightly, going from massive round-ups and Stalinist trials to everyday brutality against dissidents, but Cuba continues to be the world’s second biggest prison for journalists.”The press freedom organisation added: “Raúl Castro’s tentative desire for an ‘opening’ has never been translated into action. Under Spain’s aegis, there has been a return to dialogue with the Cuban government, but the international community must clearly raise the issue of free expression. There will be no progress if the taboos remain in place.”Oscar Sánchez Madan, the correspondent of the Cubanet website in Matanzas (the province just to the east of Havana), was sentenced to four years in prison in a trial held behind closed doors on 13 April, immediately after his arrest. His family was unable to attend the trial and he did not have a lawyer.Raymundo Perdigón Brito, one of the founders of the independent Yayabo Press agency, was given a four-year jail term following his arrest on 29 November 2006. Ramón Velázquez Toranso of the Libertad news agency was arrested on 23 January 2007 and was sentenced to three years in prison. He went on hunger strike in February.All three of these journalists were convicted of being a “pre-criminal social danger,” a provision of the Cuban criminal code that allows the authorities to arrest and imprison anyone on the sole grounds of the “potential” threat they pose. The procedure is used as tool for cracking down on dissidents.A fourth journalist, Armando Betancourt Reina, the editor of the underground newspaper El Camagüeyano, had been arrested on 23 May 2006. He was finally tried a year later and sentenced to 15 months in prison for “public disorder.” Discounting the time spent in pre-trial detention, he should be freed next month.According to the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation (a group that is illegal but tolerated by the government), Cuba currently has a total of 246 prisoners of conscience including 25 dissident journalists. Twenty of them – including Reporters Without Borders correspondent Ricardo González Alfonso, the founder of the magazine De Cuba – were arrested during the “Black Spring” crackdown of March 2003 and were given sentences ranging from 14 to 27 years in prison. They continue to be mistreated by prison guards and held in cells that are unfit for habitation, and their health has suffered as a result.
