San Diego labor demands immigrant rights

first_imgWW photo: Bob McCubbinMore than 550 janitorial workers in San Diego lost their jobs on May 17 as a result of employment audits by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The same day, in protest against this anti-worker attack, SEIU United Service Workers West organized a militant protest at the city’s Civic Center. The flyer announcing the protest was titled “Save Janitors’ Jobs and Fight for Immigration Reform.” San Diego’s Unión del Barrio was active in building this action.

Yale’s racist roots and reparations

first_imgThe brutal murder of nine African Americans at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., in June last year by a racist who brandished Confederate symbols sparked a nationwide movement to have Confederate flags and statues removed and to remove the names of slave owners from buildings and elsewhere.One such rich slaveholder was John C. Calhoun, an 1804 Yale graduate, after whom Yale University’s Calhoun College is named. In the wake of the Charleston shooting, Yale students began a petition to remove Calhoun’s name and got more than 1,500 signatures. The petition reads, “Like the official display of the Confederate flag in South Carolina, Calhoun College represents an indifference to centuries of pain and suffering among the Black population.”For anyone who doesn’t know how rotten Calhoun was, in the early 1800s, he was the most vicious national voice promoting the slavocracy, even calling slavery a “positive good.” And he was powerful as well as rich, a representative and senator from South Carolina, a secretary of state and a vice president under both John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson. One of his major “contributions” was to author the doctrine allowing slaveholding states to disregard any federal law inhibiting slavery.In the face of the Underground Railroad, led by heroes like Harriet Tubman, Calhoun authored the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. This law enabled slave owners to track down and re-enslave fugitives in the North.Defying his students, Yale President Peter Salovey announced on April 27 that the school refuses to remove the white supremacist’s name from the residential college.At a time when even the South Carolina Legislature would agree to remove the Confederate flag from the Statehouse, why would a New England Ivy League university refuse to erase the name of this racist monster? The only logical reason is that conceding this part of Yale’s past opens the door to re-examining the whole of Yale’s historic entanglement in and enrichment from slavery.Yale University is named after Elihu Yale, an official of the East India Company in the late 1600s, who made a fortune from the Indian Ocean slave trade. Yale College Dean Holloway pointed out last year, “At its founding and for its first 150 plus years, yes, Yale, like so many other institutions of the era, were complicit in plunder because their finances were interwoven with the global slave economy.” (yaledailynews.com, March 30, 2015)The unpaid labor of millions of African slaves over centuries was central to the accumulation of capital of many of today’s banks, insurance companies, corporations and elite institutions like Yale University. This accumulation, worth trillions in today’s dollars, was particularly intensified after the invention of the cotton gin by another Yale graduate, Eli Whitney. It continued through the period of sharecropping, the economic engine of Jim Crow, enforced by the brutal terror regime of the Klan.This racist legacy continues in a thousand ways to this very day, with housing, education, prisons, and even clean water policies from governments and corporations alike all designed to plunder the wealth produced by the African-American community.For years there has been a growing reparations movement demanding a return of this wealth back to the African-American communities from which it was and is so cruelly extracted. Yale’s administration and all of its Wall Street sponsors want to avoid anything that might open the door to that just reparation of wealth.Workers World supports the just demand of the Yale students to rename their college. But that’s just a start. The first plank of the Workers World Party 2016 election campaign includes the demand for reparations now! That debt must be paid by wealthy institutions like Yale University and all of its Wall Street backers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Waiver Of Interest On Loans During Moratorium Affects Stability Of Financial Institutions, RBI Tells SC

This amount is close to 1 per cent of the national GDP. And this is only for the banking system, without counting the NBFCs and all India financial institutions. If the banks are required to forego the above amount, there would be huge consequences for the stability of the banking system” – Extract of RBI’s Counter AffidavitIn wake of the Covid19 pandemic, RBI issued a circular on March 27 asking financial institutions to allow customers a moratorium on loan instalments that fall between March 1 and May 31. This was a mitigating move in order to provide respite to the borrowers.”Any economic relief has an opportunity cost, and if the argument of the petitioner is accepted, the same would amount to shifting the opportunity cost of the reliefs enjoyed by the borrowers by virtue of moratorium to the lending institutions and depositors of the country,” said the RBI. The interest on advances forms an important source of income for banks and after meeting the cost of funds, the banks also need to sustain reasonable interest margins for viable operations, the central-bank of India stated.On May 22, the RBI extended the moratorium for another three months, until August 31.Petitioner Gajendra Sharma, who is aggrieved by the charging of interest on his loan, moved the apex court arguing that the objective of the circular would be rendered futile if interest is levied, and a multiplied effect will show up in increased EMIs at a later stage. Therefore, the interest should not be charged during the moratorium period.RBI has stated that it cannot do so as it would directly effect the financial health of banking system.”Banks are commercial entities that intermediate between depositors & borrowers. They are expected to run on viable commercial considerations” said the RBI, adding that interests and advances formed an important source of income for banks.Sharma had further stated that the waiver of interest as aforementioned was imperative as his right to life due to imposition of the lockdown stands effected in as much as it was putting his Right To Livelihood at risk.To this, the RBI stated,”It is well settled that the fundamental right to life includes all the components of right to life; however, the subject matter before this court holds greater importance qua the economy of the country. It is emphatically denied that the circular issued by the answering Respondent (RBI) interfere in any manner with the employment or livelihood of any citizen of this country.”Click To Download Counter-AffidavitSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
