Apopka voters have destroyed a national trend of incumbents in municipal elections winning between 88% to 93% of the contests they compete in against challengers to their seat. Consequently, Apopka has unofficially gone from a City Council with the most experience in the state, to possibly the least.So is Apopka simply voting incumbents out of office without other factors? Or are there issues that drove this election in a specific direction?It could well be that there are core issues that persuaded voters to make another course correction in a post-Land Apopka and not simply a dislike for candidates they voted in favor of the previous term.It’s a mystery that needs to be solved.Today, The Apopka Voice will begin the search for answers and not theories on understanding the 2018 election. And what better way than to ask our readers to weigh-in?

John Baguley and Jasvir Kaur, directors of the IFC, provided fundraising and management perspectives which included strategy, major donor fundraising and applications to international funders.John Baguley said “It was remarkable how far delegates had developed since we ran the first workshop last year. With the Centre for Philanthropy’s strong monitoring and evaluation work we are developing a fundraising programme across the former Soviet Union. The IFC is currently in negotiations to run workshops in Moldova, Armenia and Khazakstan.” The IFC intends these workshops to become self-sufficient in the medium term, and to evolve both Fundraising Institutes for the participants as well as closer links with a “peace corps” of European fundraisers. Participants were encouraged to adopt and adapt the fundraising techniques that will ensure local income in the long term.  12 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The UK’s International Fundraising Consultancy (IFC) and the Ukraine’s Centre for Philanthropy are building a fundraising programme across the former Soviet Union.The Second International Fundraising Workshop under the motto “Fundraising is a two way road” was held on June 4-8, 2002 in Crimea, Ukraine.

India: Farmers march for rights, win concessions

first_imgProtesting farmers marching to Mumbai.Since the beginning of March, Indian farmers have been making themselves heard, and their voices are hard to ignore. Tens of thousands of farmers in the state of Maharashtra, in western India, gathered on March 6, for the start of the “long march,” from Nashik to Mumbai, the state capital and India’s financial and commercial center.Numbering about 50,000 by the time they arrived six days and some 112 miles later, they raised several key demands to support India’s beleaguered small farmers. The demands included a complete waiver from crippling loans, adequate minimum support prices for their produce, adequate compensation for failed crops, individual and community land rights for forest dwellers, and adequate pensions.Some of the farmers’ demands are already law but remain unenforced or underenforced. Some demands arose from election promises that were never fulfilled. Yet other demands stem from recommendations of a 14-year-old government report by the National Commission on Farmers.As they approached Mumbai, the Kisan (“farmer”) Long March drew a lot of attention and public support throughout India and beyond. The state government appeared to have agreed to most or all of their demands, promising to resolve problems within six months. Organizers and protesters were cautiously optimistic of the success of their action.The march was largely organized by the All India Kisan Sabha, and an umbrella alliance called the Bhoomi Adhikar Andolan (Movement for Land Rights), with agricultural workers mainly affiliated with leftist parties like the Communist Party of India (Marxist).Vijoo Krishnan, a leading AIKS organizer, framed the victory in Maharashtra as part of “an uprising of the agrarian sector, and it has been happening for the last two years. It has been happening in many parts of the country.” (News18India, March 13)There have also been other labor struggles among farmers in the states of Rajasthan, in the north, bordering on Pakistan, and Uttar Pradesh, to the northeast, bordering on Nepal, and tea plantation workers around Darjeeling. In November, farmers held massive, nationwide strikes demanding reforms just before the Parliament’s winter session.70 years post-independence, plight of rural workers hasn’t changedSeven decades after independence from Britain, the plight of India’s rural workers, still the majority of the country’s workforce, has not changed much. While India has experienced some high levels of growth in recent decades, it has been very uneven, benefitting the small elite, while much of the population, which now numbers about 1.35 billion people, still find living a daily struggle.Farmers often become trapped in debt, as they borrow money to farm tiny plots of land and see little in return for their toil. In recent decades, reports of high rates of suicide among Indian farmers, struggling to provide for their families, have become common. One official statistic suggests 3,097 farmers committed suicide in 2015. Many others simply give up farming, move to cities in search of work and become exploitable cheap labor for other industries.The Bharatiya Janata Party, a right-wing political party, promotes Hindu nationalism and promises ­business-friendly development. The BJP marginalizes religious and ethnic minorities, as well as Dalits and other lower castes, Adivasis (Indigenous) and others.Since coming to power, the BJP has exacerbated the nationwide crisis of the agricultural poor, especially with its land acquisition ordinance. Land acquisition in India refers to the displacement of local populations and land owners for the “developmental needs of the country.”In reality, the government offers inadequate compensation for the displaced people, while the ordinance is a great boon to large corporations. The recent fightback by farmers and the farmers’ victory in Maharashtra may mean trouble for the BJP-led government in upcoming elections at both national and state levels.A change in the elected government will, at best, only ease the crisis facing farmers, whose problems have been decades in the making. During most of those years, Indian politics have been dominated by the Congress Party, BJP’s main electoral rival. Despite its relatively centrist reputation, the Congress Party, too, is pro-business, overseeing the liberalization of the Indian economy since the 1990s and ignoring the plight of the poor.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Detained newspaper owner’s life in danger, Supreme Leader held responsible

Mousavi has been under house arrest in an unknown location for more than 18 months.”The conditions of Mousavi’s house arrest have damaged his health and he must be released at once,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, to act quickly to avoid exposing him to further danger. We will hold Khamenei responsible for anything that happens to Mousavi or to the many other journalists who are being kept in detention despite their poor health.” Mousavi, 72, was hospitalized under close surveillance by many intelligence ministry agents and Revolutionary Guards after suffering the heart attack on 22 August. The lack of information about his state of health is disturbing. His family is being pressured by the authorities and is unable to say anything.Mousavi and his wife, the best-selling writer Zahra Rahnavard, were arrested and placed under house arrest on 24 February 2011. Former parliamentary speaker Mehdi Karoubi, the owner of the suspended newspaper Etemad Melli, was also placed under house arrest the same day.They have been denied all of their rights ever since. Karoubi also has many health problems. His wife, Fatemeh Karoubi, the editor of the magazine Iran Dokhte, was also arrested but was released in September 2011.”Holding political prisoners incommunicado is tantamount to enforced disappearance and violates international law,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Iranian authorities nonetheless resort to such methods systematically with journalists and netizens.” After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists News June 9, 2021 Find out more IranMiddle East – North Africa News Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 February 25, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Things to Know: State vaccination talks being held privately

first_img Twitter Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Here’s what’s happening Wednesday with the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.: THREE THINGS TO KNOW TODAY: — As the nation’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign accelerates, governors, public health directors and committees advising them are holding key discussions behind closed doors, including debates about who should be eligible for the shots and how best to distribute them. A review by The Associated Press finds that advisory committees created to help determine how to prioritize vaccine doses have been holding private meetings in at least 13 states that are home to more than 70 million people. In at least 15 other states, such meetings are open to the public. But even in those states, governors and health officials can modify or override committee recommendations with little or no public explanation. — President Joe Biden is telling House Democrats he’s not married to all the specifics of the $1.9 trillion COVID rescue plan. But he wants them to “go big” and not let the size or scope shrink. Biden delivered private remarks to the Democratic caucus on Wednesday, and followed with a meeting with Democratic Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and top senators at the White House. Biden says his proposed $1,400 direct payments to Americans must stay in the bill. Biden has panned a slimmer Republican alternative as insufficient. But he’s confident he will win GOP support. He’s told Democrats he’s “got your backs” as Congress prepares for votes on the sweeping deal. — San Francisco has sued its own school district to try to force a resumption of in-person instruction. The lawsuit filed Wednesday, which may be the first of its kind in the U.S., comes as school systems are coming under increasing pressure from parents and politicians to reopen classrooms that were shuttered because of the pandemic. Teachers unions in many large cities, including San Francisco and Chicago, say their members shouldn’t be asked to return to classrooms until they are vaccinated. THE NUMBERS: According to data through Feb. 2 from Johns Hopkins University, the seven-day rolling average for daily new cases in the U.S. fell over the past two weeks from nearly 200,473 on Jan. 19 to nearly 141,425 on Feb. 2. During that period, the seven-day rolling average for daily new deaths rose from about 2,997 to roughly 3,090. QUOTABLE: “You just don’t know if they’re infected, so as difficult as that is, at least this time around, just lay low and cool it,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday about the risks of hosting or attending Super Bowl parties during the pandemic. ICYMI: A new study found that cleaner air from the pandemic lockdown warmed the planet a bit in 2020, especially in places such as the eastern U.S., Russia and China. The study released Tuesday found that the lockdown reduced soot and sulfate air particles, which are pollution that also reflects the sun’s heat and helps cool areas briefly. The result is that some places warmed temporarily by as much as two-thirds of a degree Fahrenheit last year and the planet as a whole warmed by about half a degree. The study’s lead author said that loss of cooling outweighed any reduction of heat-trapping carbon pollution last year. ON THE HORIZON: Hiring has weakened for six straight months. Nearly 10 million jobs remain lost since the coronavirus started and the Congressional Budget Office this week forecast that employment won’t regain its pre-pandemic level until 2024. However, a hopeful view is gaining steam that as vaccinations reach a critical mass in the U.S., perhaps around midyear, the economy and job market will strengthen much more quickly than they did after previous recessions. For now, though, the economy’s rebound has been highly unequal. The unemployment rate for the poorest quarter of Americans is roughly four times that of the wealthiest quarter. ——— Find AP’s full coverage of the coronavirus pandemic: TAGS  Things to Know: State vaccination talks being held privately WhatsApp Previous articleDžeko stripped of Roma’s captaincy after clash with FonsecaNext articleCitizens Financial Group to Participate at the Credit Suisse 22nd Annual Financial Services Forum Digital AIM Web Supportcenter_img Local NewsBusinessUS News Pinterest Facebook Facebook WhatsApp Pinterestlast_img read more
