San Diego: In defense of Chicano Park

first_imgDefending Chicano Park in San Diego on Feb. 3.By Zola Muhammad and Carl MuhammadSan DiegoAround 50 white supremacists were in the minority on Feb. 3, when an awe-inspiring 1,500-plus Californians showed up to defend San Diego’s historic Chicano Park. They came from as far away as the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles to defend the park from racist attack by a group calling themselves the “Bordertown Patriots,” Trump-style bigots who claimed to be coming there for a “patriotic picnic.”In reality, these were right-wing reactionaries who planned to deface and defame the beloved murals and the statue of a Mexican revolutionary leader. They have been emboldened by the rise of Trump and angered by the heroic actions of Takiyah Thompson and Bree Newsome, two Black women, both of whom boldly removed official symbols of white supremacist oppression.“¡Tierra, Liberación y Revolución!” (“Land, Liberty and Revolution!”) were the words of Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata, who is honored in the park with a beautiful bronze statue. In 1970, they were also the words of Chicanx activists as they cried out to affirm the liberation of Chicano Park.That was the year the community of Barrio Logan, one of the oldest communities in San Diego, began to fight for the park to be built. The city, however, had another idea for the use of the land under the Coronado Bridge and began construction of a new State Highway Patrol station. Mario Solís, a Brown Beret, was the first to notice the construction underway on the previously unused parcel of land and immediately organized a protest of occupation of the construction site. After 12 days of confrontation, the city accepted defeat in the face of the Chicanx community’s united opposition and reluctantly accepted the Chicanx community’s takeover of the land for the park.The Feb. 3 invasion of white supremacists is the second recent targeting of Chicano Park. In September 2017, a right-wing blog, Patriot Fire, called for a “picnic” in the park, but they were run off by members the community.The local press reported that these more recent racists wanted to remove a statue of Zapata and deface the murals depicting the history of the Chicanx people and the images of Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Frida Kahlo and other revolutionaries. They also evidently intended to remove the flags of Aztlán and Mexico and replace them with U.S. flags.The Chicano Park Steering Committee organized a massive security team that kept the white supremacists from harming anyone. Most of the people in the park were completely unaware of the small skirmish that resulted in a few arrests.But Chicano Park is also under assault from the city as well through gentrification, since outside interests are moving into the community under the guise of redevelopment.Attendees and speakers at the Defense of Chicano Park event included a Native motorcycle club, Aztec dancers, Brown Berets, Unión del Barrio, members of the LGBTQ community who carried Mexican flags with rainbows on them, Interfaith Ministries including Muslim, Jew and Christian spokespeople, the Black Panthers for Self Defense, a Mexican low riders club, Workers World Party and many, many more community members. Workers World Party candidate members Ryan Stray and Mickey Saldivar-Soto worked security detail and the medical tent, respectively.Attendees at the defense event celebrated the revolutionary park by beginning with a Native blessing by Stan Rodríguez from the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel. The event ended with a performance by the Aztec Dancers, with the community being asked to join in for the last dance. The present writers and WWP organizer Gloria Verdieu danced along with the Indigenous dancers as Native elders sang songs of prayers.According to the “picnic” organizers’ website, their ultimate goal is to close Chicano Park. But white supremacy has lost another battle. The people have made it clear with their sheer presence that Chicano Park is here to stay.Photo: Chicano Park steering Committee FacebookFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Rental crisis in Ireland affects dog ownership

first_imgNewsHousingLifestylePetsRental crisis in Ireland affects dog ownershipBy admin – August 7, 2019 277 WhatsApp Linkedin TAGSHousinglifestyleLimerick City and CountyNewsPets RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Limerick county house prices to rise 5% in 2021 Print Email Border photo created by freepik – www.freepik.comWE recently featured Dog-Friendly Ireland Day here on ‘For Pet’s Sake’ and it was fantastic to see how many businesses in Ireland are embracing the dog-friendly ethos.Sadly, according to the charity Dogs Trust, the same can’t be said for the rental market in Ireland. A lack of dog-friendly accommodation is contributing to why many dogs are being surrendered to local authority pounds.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The charity also revealed recently that 75 people emailed them in 2018 looking to surrender their dog due to problems moving property. This is 15 per cent of all surrender request emails that the  Trust received in that year.The charity recently launched its second national ‘Dog-Friendly Ireland Day’, which is part of a wider initiative to encourage more organisations and services across the country to become dog-friendly. More than 750 business owners and individuals pledged to welcome dogs onto their premises or visit their favourite dog-friendly spot by signing up to take part in the day and receive their dog-friendly goody bag from Dogs Trust. The charity is now focused on the difficulty that dog owners across the country are facing while trying to find accommodation that accepts dogs.As part of their campaign, Dogs Trust has released ‘Renting with Rover’ guidelines for both tenants and landlords. It is hoped that these guidelines will help encourage more landlords to accept dogs, which will in turn help make the house-hunting process easier for people with dogs. With the housing market in turmoil, landlords are frequently turning away such candidates, not from a personally negative experience but the ‘fear of the unknown’ is listed as the biggest barrier. The guidelines offer helpful advice and steps that a landlord can take to help overcome any concerns they may have, as well as tips for renters to help them in the search process.The charity is also asking all estate agents and online rental sites who currently are, or are considering, listing dog-friendly properties, to make this option clear on their platforms for both renters and landlords.  Recent research carried out by Behaviours and Attitudes for Dogs Trust revealed that 57 per cent of private landlords weren’t aware if the mediums they use offer the option of advertising a property as pet-friendly.Owen Reilly is one of the few estate agents breaking the mould in the rental market by encouraging landlords to consider tenants with pets.Owen said, “We encourage our landlord clients to consider tenants with pets and in particular, dogs. Landlords who automatically rule out tenants with dogs are being shortsighted and are excluding a large portion of the rental market. Tenants are older and more mature than say, ten years ago. So many have dogs.“From my experience, dog owners tend to be more responsible tenants because dog owners are more responsible by nature! They are so grateful to find a landlord who will consider them with their dog and they then tend to take very good care of the property. Not to mention, that letting out a property to someone with a dog will more than likely mean that they will be a long-term tenant, a win-win situation for everyone! People are going to rent for longer as a choice and smart landlord need to change their perceptions with the times. We have never had a property damaged by a tenant with a dog but simple measures such as taking a small pet deposit and doing regular checks on the property can help put a landlord’s mind at ease.“We recently made a built-to-rent block pet-friendly and the demand doubled once this fact was advertised.”A survey with landlords commissioned by Dogs Trust revealed that 48 per cent found damage caused by tenants to be the main problem, but only 11 per cent listed damage from a pet as a problem**. Furthermore, research by Behaviours and Attitudes carried out on behalf of Dogs Trust showed that 40 per cent of households in Ireland have at least one dog, so landlords who are open to the idea of welcoming dogs to their property would open up a larger selection of responsible and more likely long-term tenants.One of the devastating knock-on effects from Ireland’s housing crisis is families who are now finding themselves homeless over the lack of property available to dog owners. All too often the charity hear that families are being left with no other option but to give up their dog, move back to their parents’ home with their dog or face eviction.Dogs Trust believes that if more properties were dog-friendly, it would help ease the pressure on local authority pounds and rescue centres nationwide as the number of dogs being surrendered would lower and the number of people in a position to adopt would increase.Sarah Lynch, campaigns manager for Dogs Trust, commented: “We strongly believe that if more dog-friendly accommodation was available, more people would be in a situation where they could welcome a dog into their family, and those who already own a dog would not have to give up their dog. There are simple steps a landlord can take such as discussing the topic with potential renters, meeting the dog beforehand, and getting a reference from a previous landlord. These could go a long way to alleviating any worries they may have.“Although 42 per cent of landlords have admitted to purposefully not allowing a tenant to rent with a pet, 75 per cent say that they could be convinced. With an overwhelming majority open to the idea, we are hopeful that our guidelines will help both landlords and tenants open up the conversation about allowing pets.”center_img Facebook Advertisement Mortgage payment break for local authority home loan borrowers will be extended by a further three months TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

Former New York City police officer indicted with tampering a crime scene after he shot a man: Sources

first_imgiStock/Graffizone(NEW YORK) —  A former New York City police officer was indicted for attempting to cover up a crime scene after shooting a man in the face, multiple sources confirmed to ABC News.Ritchard Blake turned himself in to the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office on Friday and is expected to get arraigned on two counts of tampering with physical evidence charges, sources said.Blake, 41, allegedly got into an altercation with Thavone Santana during the pre-dawn hours of Aug. 2, 2018 and fired two shots. One of the bullets burrowed through Santana’s face and landed in his neck where it remains, according to a federal civil lawsuit he filed in January.After the shooting, Blake allegedly told 911 he opened fired in self-defense because he was being robbed. The following day, video surveillance showed a different story, an internal investigation was launched and Blake was fired from the force.Blake is not charged in the shooting itself but in the cover-up after police said he hovered over Santana, noticed the security cameras on a lamppost and planted a knife on the victim.A law enforcement source told ABC News that “all the evidence was presented to the grand jury and they found that the shooting was justified.”According to the lawsuit, Blake has a history of violence.“Sgt. Blake has a prominent and long history of violence, assaults and was the subject of Internal Affairs investigations of his actions in 2010, 2011 and 2016 and was disciplined for his violations of NYPD Policies.”Request for comment by ABC News from Blake’s attorney Abe George was not immediately received.George previously told ABC News his client acted in self-defense and that Santana was the aggressor. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
