Unregulated militia in uniform, carrying long-rifles, used the power of threat in an attempt to intimidate those who oppose them. Imitating other terrorists in other countries, Nazi-sympathizer and White Nationalist, 20-year old James Alex Fields, Jr. allegedly used his car to mow down 19 people, in addition to killing Heather Heyer who was there as a peaceful demonstrator showing her opposition to the injustice and hatred Fields and his companions spouted.No one should be surprised by what happened in Charlottesville. In our current political climate, so-called white supremacy, white nationalism, neo-Nazism and the overt racism of the KKK have been empowered and emboldened to spew hatred publicly and without shame. Sadly, some counter-protesters allowed themselves to be baited and responded to the violence with violence. There is no moral equivalence, however. White nationalists and white supremacists holding hateful, racist positions armed themselves and came to Charlottesville to instigate violence and hatred. They succeeded.I was thankful for the clergy who were present in Charlottesville, including my colleagues in the Diocese of Virginia, The Right Reverend Shannon Johnston, The Right Reverend Susan Goff, and Right Reverend Ted Gulick. They went to Charlottesville to pray, to evidence that authentic Christianity has no place for the kind of hatred peddled by white supremacists and white nationalists. They were resolute, calm and overtly non-violent.It needs to be stated without equivocation that racism, the tenets of white supremacy, white nationalism, Nazism and similar ideologies cannot be reconciled with the teachings of Jesus or the Christian faith. Those who claim Christian identity while holding these types of views can only be viewed as heretics and in error. As Episcopalians, we are sworn to oppose these. Our baptismal promises allow no room for compromise:Will you persevere in resisting evil and whenever you sin, repent and return to the Lord?Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons loving your neighbor as yourself? Will strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being?(BCP pp. 304-305)All are welcome in the Episcopal Church; hatred and bigotry are not. Being clear with those who hold hateful, bigoted views, or who act in hateful and bigoted ways, that these views and actions are not acceptable and cannot be harmonized with authentic Christian faith and living is an act of love. A wise priest once said to me, “Sometimes ‘no’ is the language of love.”Sadly, racism and bigotry still infect not only our nation, but also our Church and our diocese. With society, we all still have much work to do. I will be consulting with our Anti-Racism Commission and Team to consider how we might deepen our work and be more effective in the days and weeks ahead.Today, August 14 on the Church calendar, we remember Jonathan Myrick Daniels, who as a seminarian went to Selma, Alabama in 1965 to confront racism and oppression and and who became a martyr protecting a teenage African-American girl when he was killed by a shotgun blast at the hand of a white  supremacist.On Saturday, Heather Heyer joined Jonathan Myrick Daniels, Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King, Jr., and a long list of martyrs – of many races and creeds – who died striving to oppose racial injustice and hatred in this country. The last post on Heather Heyer’s Facebook page stated, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”Needless to say, she was right.I direct all congregations to pray the following prayer in unison either at the Offertory or after the postcommunion prayer beginning August 20th and for the next four Sundays:For the Human Family – (BCP p. 815)O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

This plot is located in the Rubalcaba district of Liérganes and faces what was once the ancient “Camino Real” that ran parallel to what is now San Roque de Riomiera road. Save this picture!Original ConstructionOne of the façades overlooks an open space which, by all appearances, was probably a square before the aforementioned road detached and sunk the magnificent chapel of Santa María La Blanca. It is a typically mountainous rural setting, quite distorted by the misguided intervention in the nearby buildings. Within a short distance of the town was this casona or large house, which belonged to the Rubalcabas in ancient times, and which is in the same district as the famous cross, chapel, mill and bridge over the River Miera. According to historical records and the foundations of at least two casonas that have been discovered, the district appears to have been more densely populated between the 17th and 19th centuries. Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánSeveral solutions were considered for this client, from the construction of a new one- or two-storey house on the slope of the hill to the restoration of the dilapidated building. Approximately 120 years old, the house is of no artistic value, but it has the dignity of the anonymous and popular architecture that is so sought after today. It is also etched in the memories of many generations and its demolition, therefore, would have altered the landscape even more. It was for this reason that it was eventually decided to maintain and restore it.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánHowever, the design we had in mind could not be accommodated in the interior. It worked perfectly well as a main building, but two pavilions had to be added to cater to the client’s needs. Therefore, a pavilion was built on either side of the main building: one, with a square plan and two floors, to house the garage and a library, and another, with a rectangular plan and two storeys, to accommodate the utilities, a wine cellar and the guestrooms. The slope of the terrain half buries these volumes which are arranged like natural platforms and open directly onto the back garden – via the guest pavilion in the first case – and via the sun terrace/bridge in the case of the main building. Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe idea of extending the volume of the main building was dismissed in favour of adding two extensions with separate uses and compositions but connected by bridges so as to have less of an impact on the rural surroundings. The result is a small complex in keeping with traditional mountain architecture. The house is accessed from the street via a walled yard around the old building and the garage/library pavilion. A covered space between the two affords the visitor a magnificent view of the “Peña Pelada” mountain before entering the house.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessRecycle step by step / Dom Arquitectura + Asa StudioSelected ProjectsHeadquarters Siegle + Epple / Spacial SolutionsSelected Projects Share 2012 Architects: Carlos de Riaño Lozano Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Area:  700 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/424623/rehabilitation-of-rubalcaba-housing-carlos-de-riano-lozano Clipboard Year:  ArchDaily Rehabilitation of Rubalcaba Housing / Carlos de Riaño Lozano Houses CopyAbout this officeCarlos de Riaño LozanoOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationRubalcabaSpainPublished on September 06, 2013Cite: “Rehabilitation of Rubalcaba Housing / Carlos de Riaño Lozano” [Rehabilitación de Vivienda Rubalcaba / Carlos de Riaño Lozano] 06 Sep 2013.

N.C. action in solidarity with Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino workers

Posted on by

first_imgFeb. 21, Durham, N.C. Photo: Dominique LiwanagDurham, N.C. — During the rush-hour commute on Feb. 21, organizers gathered at the Exxon gas station on Raleigh Road in Chapel Hill, N.C., to demand that the corporation discontinue their relationship with Grand Isle Shipyard.  Exxon, BP, Shell and Unocal all avail of the service of Grand Isle Shipyard, the oil company responsible for the deaths of three Filipino workers this past November 2012 and the exploitation of hundreds more.Jonna Baldres of the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns and the Philippine Forum provided a background on the exploitative conditions and the campaign to obtain justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Filipinos.  Yves Nibungco, a national steering committee member of the “Justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino Workers,” urged the communities in North Carolina to take action, particularly calling on Exxon to stop availing the services of Grand Isle Shipyard. He also urged the community to call Congressperson Richard Hudson of North Carolina [202-225-3715], who is a member of the House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections, to investigate the inhumane working conditions and unfair labor practices of the Grand Isle Shipyard and Black Elk Energy.Feb. 21, Durham, N.C. Photo: Dominique LiwanagDuring the Feb. 21 mobilization, Donna Dewitt, co-chairperson of the Southern Workers Assembly, supported the campaign of the GIS Filipino Workers, connecting the struggles of U.S. workers and the migrant Filipino workers. Dewitt related: “Guestworkers face particularly challenging labor conditions, as their visa is tied to continued employment with an individual employer, creating a huge imbalance of power. Similar to other U.S. workers, whether citizens, legal residents or undocumented, these workers have been denied the most basic labor rights due to the greed of a company that put profits over people.”  Justin Flores of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee drew connections between the local struggles of migrant Latino/a workers on local tobacco farms in North Carolina and the Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino workers in Louisiana.  Flores stated: “We know that what happened at Grand Isle is a logical conclusion of a system that leaves workers without rights.  This is what happens when workers can’t complain on the job; this is what happens when workers can’t collectively bargain; and this is what happens when workers’ only way of staying in the country is by maintaining a single employer. We know what it means when U.S. laws don’t mean anything in rural Mexico or the Philippines. We know that the sending countries are fine with it as long as the remittances come back into the country. I’m glad that my brothers and sisters don’t see Grand Isle Shipyard as just one company, but as part of a broken system from Louisiana to North Carolina.”Later that night, Kasama, a Filipino student organization at the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill, assembled a forum to discuss the Justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino Workers Campaign.Caroline Jurado, co-leader and treasurer of Kasama, said: “I think Filipino youth should support the Justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Campaign because we are the people who will pave the way to our future. We’re not only fighting for the Filipino workers at Grand Isle, but for our working rights as well. Our family and relatives traveled abroad once too, whether it was in the United States or elsewhere, in hopes of bettering their lives and ours. By supporting this campaign we are ensuring that their hopes will come true and bring the fair and just treatment that our fellow Filipinos and other overseas workers deserve now and in generations to come.”Forty audience members packed the forum. Among the attendees were members of the North Carolina Student Power Union; United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1208, Smithfield Foods of Tarheel, N.C.; SWA; FLOC; UNC-CH Student Action with Workers; and the Durham branch of Workers World Party. The forum ended with a solidarity message from the attendees saying: “North Carolina supports the Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino workers! Makibaka! Huwag matakot!” (Join the struggle, don’t be afraid!)Caravans from Chicago; New York City; New Jersey; Washington, D.C.; and the Miami area will be converging in New Orleans to support the struggle of the GIS Filipino workers, as part of a national fact-finding and solidarity mission for these workers. Caravan participants will gather the experiences of the Filipino workers who were trafficked and abused by Grand Isle Shipyard and DNR Offshore Crewing Services, as well as doing outreach to workers who can join the class action lawsuit, initiated by exploited workers, against Grand Isle Shipyard.For more information about the “Justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino Workers” Campaign, visit j4gisfilipinoworkers.wordpress.com; and for the full statement of the SWA, visit southernworker.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

NYC nurses picket for better staffing ratios

Posted on by

first_imgThe New York State Nurses Association held informational picket lines in front of 13 New York City hospitals on Feb. 13, six weeks after their 2015-18 contract expired on Dec. 31. The contract is with the New York City Hospital Alliance, a bargaining group that includes Montefiore, Mount Sinai and New York-Presbyterian, as well as three independent NYC hospitals. On top of wanting a raise, the nurses are demanding adequate staffing ratios and caseloads, which presently are “overwhelmingly high in both volume and acuity.” Statistics were compiled from nearly 3,800 official “protests of assignment” signed by over 20,000 nurses from January to December 2018. (nysna.org, Feb. 13)  The union says this situation “challenge[s] the dedicated registered nurses who work tirelessly to protect and advocate for the patients, families and communities they serve.”The union has not yet held a strike vote.Meanwhile, the NYSNA-supported Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act, with a proposed nurse-to-patient ratio of 2 to 1 in intensive-care units, failed to pass the state Legislature in 2018.

On Indigenous Peoples Day 2020: Junipero Serra statue bites the dust

Posted on by

first_imgMission San Rafael, Calif. Some 60 people responded to a call by members of the Coast Miwok of Marin for a Red Paint Rally on Indigenous Peoples Day at the Mission San Rafael. The crowd gathered Oct. 12 at the statue of Junipero Serra outside the mission, which is one of the California missions established by Spain in the 1700s.  Junipero Serra statue pulled down on Indigenous Peoples Day, Oct. 12, San Rafael, Calif. WW Photo: Judy GreenspanProtesters covered the Serra statue with red paint. Then they toppled the statue of Spanish priest and missionary Junipero Serra. (tinyurl.com/yxku9535)Organizers said Indigenous Peoples Day is a day to honor Indigenous people and their ancestors. “To tell our true history and who we are,” said Dean Hoaglin with Coast Miwok of Marin. “Our people were forcibly put here. They did not ask to come here to this mission. They were enslaved here.” (tinyurl.com/yxlzk2zp)Miwok speakers pointed out that Native peoples had been subjected to floggings and slavery inside the California missions, as part of the Spanish conquest. Serra was the father of the notorious California Mission system, during which Spanish soldiers kidnapped Native people, forced them to build the missions and worked them to death at early ages. Five young women alleged to have participated were issued citations and released by San Rafael police.Serra was canonized as a saint in 2015 by Pope Francis during a visit to the United States. However, Serra has become a symbol of the land theft and genocidal abuses against the First Peoples by Spanish and United States colonializers down through the years.

Required fields are marked * Make a comment Rep. Judy Chu (D-Pasadena) joined with the House of Representatives on Tuesday as they passed H.R. 6395, the William M. Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2021. The NDAA authorizes $740.5 billion in defense spending at the Department of Defense and Department of Energy.The bill includes a 3% pay raise for members of the military, $5 million for research into extreme weather, and a $1 billion Pandemic Preparedness and Resilience National Security Fund.“Funding our military and providing for our national defense is one of the most important votes we take each year,” Chu said. “But while I believe we must support the men and women in uniform, and while this bill makes some important changes to the military, the price tag is still staggeringly high. I supported an amendment to trim the fat in this bill and bring our military spending more in line with our domestic spending, and I will continue to do so. But one thing this bill – passed with bipartisan support – proves is that we have the means and the ability to quickly provide billions of dollars to the economy, something that I hope my colleagues keep in mind as we begin consideration of additional COVID-19 legislation.”The bill also improves sexual assault prevention and response, prohibits any assistance to the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen without a new AUMF, omits language that would prevent the closure of the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, and requires the DOD to change the names of all military bases named for Confederates.This bill also establishes an annual limit on military construction funding that a President can redirect in an emergency of $100 million for domestic projects and $500 billion for overseas projects, with the exception of projects necessary to support public health.Also included in the bill is the text of H.R. 2215, the San Gabriel Mountains Foothills and Rivers Protection Act, introduced by Chu.The San Gabriel Mountains Foothills and Rivers Protection Act would expand the borders of the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument to include the western Angeles National Forest. It would also establish a National Recreation Area to enhance conservation, increase access for all communities by connecting park poor areas to open space, and improve the management of the area through improved resources, education, and public engagement. The 30,659 acres of new and expanded wilderness areas will benefit from the highest form of protection of any federal wildland.
