Border Patrol guns down mother of five

first_imgHis grief and anger show clearly as Munique’s father addresses the crowd of friends, neighbors and activist supporters.Photo: Aaron LeafChula Vista, Calif. — Approximately 300 people gathered in the city of Chula Vista, seven miles from the Mexican border, on Oct. 1 to mourn the killing of Valeria Munique Tachiquin Alvarado by a plainclothes Border Patrol agent. “Munique,” as friends and family called her, died on Sept. 28 under a hail of bullets from the thus far unidentified agent.The vigil for Munique was held near the murder scene, where a memorial was erected. The event was organized by the American Friends Service Committee and lasted about two hours. Mourners lit candles and chanted, “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” and “¡El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido!”Family members spoke to the crowd, thanking them for their support. Maria Puga, the widow of Anastacio Rojas, attended the vigil and spoke in support of the Tachiquin and Alvarado families. Forty-two-year-old Rojas was brutally beaten and tasered to death by Border Patrol agents at the San Ysidro, Calif., border crossing in 2010.U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials claim an agent was serving a search warrant on an unidentified male when Munique intentionally ran him down with her car, striking the agent hard enough to cause him to flip onto the hood and windshield. The agent claims he was “dragged” several hundred yards on the hood before firing six to 10 bullets into the windshield.Eyewitnesses gave an entirely different account.“As the car was backing up, the officer was on the street walking towards the car and discharging [his weapon],” said eyewitness Prince Watson. Other witnesses say they observed the car movingly slowly in reverse away from the plainclothes agent. Witnesses also said he was not displaying his badge, nor did he identify himself as a Border Patrol agent.Gilbert Alvarado, the husband of the slain mother of five, demanded answers. “My wife got killed for no reason,” he said during an interview with local media. “Where is the evidence my wife threatened a trained officer? I want justice.”Munique’s father, Valentin Tachiquin, said the community support meant a great deal to him and his family. “It gives me power to continue on, seeing such a lovely outpouring of love for our family and for Munique.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

New law would threaten online freedoms

first_img February 22, 2021 Find out more Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists Reporters Without Borders expressed concern today at proposed changes to the 2001 Bangladesh Telecommunications Act that would tighten control over e-mail traffic and legalise invasion of privacy and undermine free expression. It would also permit evidence based on e-mail interception to be used in court. Help by sharing this information RSF_en Receive email alerts “Respect for confidentiality of personal information obtained from Internet service providers (ISPs) or through e-mail messages must be an unshakeable principal of any democratic society,” it said. “New information technology allows greater monitoring of personal messages and the Bangladesh government must respect the privacy of its citizens and their right to communicate freely.” The Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has reportedly drafted amendments to the 2001 law at the request of the intelligence agencies and the law ministry which have cited reasons of national security and the need to fight terrorism.The intelligence agencies want access to the subscribers’ database of ISPs and to use in court cases material gathered through currently-illegal interception of private e-mail. One academic told The Daily Star newspaper that such interception “could be used as a weapon to blackmail people.”The intelligence agencies also want to amend section 30 of the Telecommunications Act (concerning privacy) to read (addition in italics): “…to ensure protection of the privacy of telecommunications subject to the national security laws.” This kind of general clause would allow intelligence officials disturbingly greater scope to intervene.Some freedom of expression activists say they fear the amendments would turn the country into a “police state.” The changes also seem to contradict the 2001 Act’s main purpose of setting up an independent commission (the BTRC) to regulate telecommunications. The way now seems open to transfer the BTRC’s powers back to the telecommunications ministry. Akhteruzzaman Manju, president of the Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA), warned in The Daily Star that the Act could only be amended with the permission of the International Telecommunications Union and after debate in parliament.

Old Country Church singing continues on despite poor weather Sunday

first_img Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) Published 3:00 am Wednesday, November 26, 2014 Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits The Rev. Ed Shirley, pastor of Brundidge United Methodist Church, attended the Singing at the Old Church for the first time and the singing was a new experience for him.“I knew a lot of the songs that have been around for ages but some of them were new to me,” Shirley said. “It was good to discover these long, cherished songs. And, it was great to hear them sung without music. When there is no music, you pay more attention to the words and how the music blends. I really enjoyed the singing. It was different but delightful.”Shirley said the songs were sung in a way that is not traditional with the Methodist church.“The singing had the flavor of Sacred Harp, with the pitching of the songs and the four parts,” he said. “It was wonderful to hear the seasoned voices that knew their parts and made the music so beautiful. “Sometimes, I had to not sing and just listen to the verse and chorus before I could sing. It was a beautiful music that you just don’t hear that much anymore — special music in a special place at a special time of year.”The Singing at the Old Country Church will be held at 2 p.m. the Sunday before Thanksgiving 2015.

Late Palaeozoic-early Mesozoic fore-arc basin Sedimentary rocks at the Pacific margin in Western Antarctica

first_imgWe infer that the Trinity Peninsula Group of the Antarctic Peninsula was deposited in a fore-arc basin(s) of composite type located between the Gondwanian arc massif (consisting of plutonic and older gneissose basement rocks) and a subduction complex, now represented by “greenschists”, “blueschists” and albite-epidote-hornblende-bearing rocks of the pre-Jurassic metamorphic complex. The Trinity Peninsula Group has been re-examined in the type area and can be divided into the Hope Bay, View Point and Legoupil Formations. Sedimentary rocks of all formations are of turbidite facies; meta-pillow lavas are described for the first time from these rocks. Multiphase folding has been observed in all formations and regional metamorphism reached prehnite-pumpellyite facies. Microprobe analyses of relict pyroxenes in the pillow lavas indicate the parent magma was probably within-plate alkali basalt. Analyses of detrital garnets show that they are different in composition from metamorphic garnets in the subduction complex, indicating that the latter did not supply a significant amount of material to the fore-arc basin(s). A close similarity with the Torlesse terrane in New Zealand is noted and we conclude that a late Palaeozoic-early Mesozoic fore-arc basin environment can be traced almost continuously around the Pacific margin from South America to New Zealand.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s joins Cristo Rey national partnership

first_imgThe Cristo Rey Network announced Jan. 18 that Saint Mary’s College is among its list of 14 National University Partners. As a National University Partner, Saint Mary’s has teamed up with the Cristo Rey Network of 24 high schools across the country to ensure that low-income students have an equal opportunity of obtaining a secondary education. “The partnerships demonstrate Cristo Rey’s ongoing commitment to ensure that all of the graduates of its network high schools have access to the academic, social and financial supports they need to complete a college degree,” Saint Mary’s media contact Gwen O’Brien said in a press release. As part of this partnership, Saint Mary’s sends admission counselors to recruit at nearly all of the network high schools. “This means we work with the network, the high school personnel and other partners in opening doors to postsecondary education to their students,” Mona Bowe, vice president of Enrollment Management, said. “But it goes beyond that,” Bowe said. “We participate in the annual Summit, where we can exchange ideas with the guidance counselors and learn from them about their students and their success stories.” According to Bowe, Saint Mary’s alumnus Janae Renteria is now the guidance counselor for one of the Cristo Rey High Schools in Tucson, Ariz. The college is very proud and honored to say they sponsored her to attend a national conference last fall. Saint Mary’s involvement with the Cristo Rey Network stems back even before the Network’s launch in 2001. Bowe said she visited the original Cristo Rey High School in the 1990s. “As I learned more about the high school, and about the network as it was formed, I realized how close their goal and mission were to ours,” Bowe said. “In particular, these caught my eye: learning in a context of faith, rigorous Catholic secondary education and a real world Corporate Work Study.” Saint Mary’s Office of Admissions has enrolled a number of Cristo Rey students at the College, who have contributed their diverse views to the developing community. Bowe said she is proud to note the contributions of the Cristo Rey students, and also expressed that the college gives the students something in return. “The partnership gives us the best of both worlds,” she said. “We [offer] Cristo Rey students an outstanding Catholic education paired with women’s leadership development, and in return, we get some of their best and brightest women to join our community of learners, and their experiences enrich our community.”last_img read more

Woman, activist, mother series wraps up with panel dedicated to activism balance

first_imgSaint Mary’s invited Dalila Huerta, Lety Stanton-Verduzco and Ameenah Starks to speak at its final woman, activist, mother panel Tuesday night. Each woman plays a vital role in activism within the South Bend community.Huerta currently works at La Casa de Amistad as the education and community programs coordinator and said her work is dedicated to cultural equity, decolonization and critical multicultural pedagogy. Stanton-Verduzco serves as the recruiter trainer for the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program of St. Joseph County.Starks is the assistant director of the Bowen Center in LaPorte County and works at the Islamic Society of Michiana, where she implements new programs to help reduce the stigma around Muslims in the Michiana community.Each panelist explained how her professional life has heavily influenced her life as an activist. “I have always been a museum arts educator,” Huerta said. “It was right after the [2016 Presidential] election and I was feeling motivated to do a little more within my job. I really wanted to build a relationship with students and at this time there was a job opening at La Casa de Amistad.” Huerta said she felt this would be an opportunity to build deeper relationships with students. “Another thing I really loved about this job opportunity was its commitment to community work and social justice,” she said. “So, bringing and building communities and advocating not just for South Bend but the greater Latinx population here in the United States.”Huerta said it was a big adjustment to pursue a career that wasn’t what she had studied in graduate school. “I do love that I get to do, through my job, a lot of things that I care about the most,” she said.Starks said it is hard for her to separate her life as an activist from her professional life.“Working in the community I began to see different types of people,” she said. “I would just become connected with rich people, poor people in various phases of their lives that were struggling in some situation. It always amazed me because I had just gone through that thing that they were struggling with.”Starks said she turned to God to guide her through her life. “I never planned this path for myself,” she said. “It’s kind of like I’ve been led to everything that I’ve done.”Stanton-Verduzco said her focus was working with children who she believed to be most vulnerable, especially because they can’t advocate for themselves.“I loved working with kids,” she said, “But I realized I only have them from 2:30 to 6:00. I can’t control anything before 2:30 and I can’t control anything after 6:00.”She realized that no matter how she helped them during that time frame, if situations surrounding the children didn’t change she wasn’t helping them as much as she wanted to.“Everything became ‘How do I incorporate what I’m doing to make it better for the families,’” Stanton-Verduzco said. “We started having things like family nights and encouraging parents to come and participate. I saw these little things impacting something greater than just those three hours I had with those kids.”Stanton-Verduzco realized there was a great need in the community and began to bring other people in the community together to train other people in advocating for children. The panelists closed with advice about balancing life, self care and activism.“I think it’s important to be with someone that supports what you do,” Stanton-Verduzco said. “It’s not that we have the same focus or passion, but we have the same values. If I am doing something in the evening, I know it’s not a burden to my family.”Huerta said being mindful helps her in balancing her life.“Make sure you’re doing something valuable and contributing to something,” she said. “I also realize I can’t do everything and it’s okay to say no.”Starks said keeping herself organized is the biggest contributor in a balanced life.“It usually becomes color-coded to let me know what is my time, what is work time and what other times I need to fill in,” she said. “Every month I go and look at what I have done. I have made a commitment that I will work toward my goal.” Tags: activism, Mother, saint mary’s, work-life balancelast_img read more
