Liberian, Sierra Leonean, and Guinean Communities in U.S., Europe Join to Honor Victims of…

first_imgAs the United States Capital City Washington DC observed “Ebola Awareness Day,” last Friday December 5,  Diaspora leaders from Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Mali gathered in  Washington DC to express solidarity with their four nations in the global fight to halt the Ebola Epidemic.In a solemn ceremony of regional kinship, leaders of the Mano River nations,  along with Malian nationals paid tribute to the deceased victims of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) including doctors, health workers and individual citizens, when they presented plaques of honor to their Ambassadors in Washington.  Special honors were also given to the noted Ebola survivors, Dr. Kent Brantley, and Nancy Writebol of Samaritan Purse, who were evacuated to the United States after contracting the deadly Ebola virus. The presentations were made at National Ebola Summit held at the Washington DC Convention Center by the Diaspora Ebola Network, (DEN). Presenting the awards, DEN Chairman John G.F. Lloyd said the presentations represented the deep sentiments of solidarity and grief felt by the communities of the three nations residing abroad. He extolled the marvelous sprit of collaboration among Diaspora nationals of the Mano River Union, noting “out of this moment of pain we have come together in an unprecedented fashion to show our love for our people.” He continued, “If this spirit of solidarity can endure even beyond Ebola, then the sacrifice of our people will not be in vain.” He was joined by the community leaders of Liberia Sierra Leone, and Guinea, from both America and Europe, who in separate remarks, expressed concern for the plight of their people at home, and pledged solidarity and support for the individual nations.   Dr. Lance Plyer, Samaritan Purse Medical Director for Liberia, who received the awards for the two U.S. survivors Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol expressed humble gratitude on behalf of his mission. After rendering a touching narration of the medical treatment he gave to sustain the life of the two survivors, he pledged the unwavering commitment of Samaritan Purse to the people of Liberia even beyond Ebola. Special recognition was also given to the late Thomas Eric Duncan of Liberia, and Dr. Martin Salia of Sierra Leone, who both succumbed to Ebola in the United States.Among key dignitaries at the event was Andrew Weber, the newly appointed Ebola Coordinator at United States Department of State who pledged the continued commitment of the United States government towards stopping Ebola in West Africa for the sake of global security. He noted that the U.S., under the leadership of President Obama is committed to increase its effort with added resources where necessary to ensure the end of the deadly epidemic in West Africa.Also present were top Washington DC City Officials including DC Director of Health Joxel Garcia and City Councilwoman Yvette Alexander, who officially brought greetings from the DC government with the reading of an official Proclamation by Washington DC Mayor Vincent Gray declaring the date of the Summit as “DC Ebola Awareness Day.”Their greetings were followed by remarks from the Ambassadors of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, along with a statement by the Charge d’Affairs of Mali. In their official remarks, the four envoys expressed gratitude to the U.S. government, and the entire international community for the support given to their individual countries. Ambassador Jeremiah Sulunteh of Liberia praised the role of U.S. government and called upon the United States to continue in its role as the global leader in the fight to end Ebola. Ambassador Bockarie Stevens of Sierra Leone extolled the great initiative shown by the three communities, and welcomed the spirit of unity shown in the wake of Ebola. Guinean Ambassador Mamady Conde warned that Ebola is a global threat not limited to West Africa, adding “Ebola does not need any visa to enter a country.” For his part, Malian Charge d’Affairs Moustapha Cisse representing the latest nation to be infected, called upon the international community to work vigorously to stop Ebola at its early stages in Mali. Panel guests included representatives of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the D.C. Department of Health, Samaritan Purse, the DC Office of African Affairs, and other major international agencies.The National Ebola Summit was organized by DEN, a joint Venture of leading Mano River Union Diaspora organizations, in collaboration with the USAID-Center for International Disaster Information (CIDI), the Government of the District of Columbia Office of African Affairs, the CDC, and Samaritan Purse. Diaspora organizations working in partnership to host the Summit include the Coalition of Concerned Liberians, (CCL), the National Organization of Sierra Leoneans in North America (NOSLINA), and the Guinean Association of America, and the European Federation of Liberian Associations (ELFA), the Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas along with several national alumni, county based, religious, and humanitarian organizations.Under the theme “Working Together to Help End Ebola”, deliberations at the Summit were centered upon fostering collaboration and meaningful relations amongst Diaspora organizations and relief groups which have already raised millions of dollars in separate initiatives. The Washington DC Summit coincided with a similar initiative in London, UK organized by the “Elbow out Ebola” movement to highlight issues that will impact on the future recovery, and development in the worst affected West African countries, beyond the end of Ebola.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Lawmakers Want First Saturday in December for Presidential, Legislative Elections

first_imgThe Joint committee is chaired by Sen. Varney Sherman.The joint committee of the Senate on Judiciary, Human Rights, Claims and Petitions, and Autonomous Commissions has recommended the amendment of Article 93 (a) of the Constitution to provide that elections for the President, Vice President, members of the Senate and Representatives be held on the first Saturday in December of each election year.Article 93 (a): “The limitation of the Presidential term of office to two terms, each of six years duration, may be subject to amendment; provided that the amendment shall not become effective during the term of office of the incumbent President.”The Joint committee chaired by Grand Cape Mount County Senator Varney Sherman further recommended that Article 83 (b) of the Constitution of Liberia, “which was once amended be further amended to provide that the second ballot for elections of President, if necessary, shall be conducted on the first Saturday, after the announcement of results from the first round of elections.”Article 83 (a): “All elections of public officers shall be determined by an absolute majority of the votes cast. If no candidate obtains an absolute majority in the first ballot, a second ballot shall be conducted on the second Tuesday following. The two candidates who received the greatest numbers of votes on the first ballot shall be designated to participate in the run off election, while the joint Committee is also recommending that the second paragraph of Article 83 (c) of the Constitution should be amended to lessen the time for the filing and disposition of electoral complaints from 30 days to 15.Article 83 (c) says: “The returns of the elections shall be declared by the Elections Commission not later than fifteen days after the casting of ballots. Any party or candidate who complains about the manner in which the elections were conducted or who challenges the results thereof shall have the right to file a complaint with the Elections Commission… Such complaint must be filed not later than seven days after the announcement of the results of the elections.The Elections Commission shall, within 30 days of receipt of the complaint, conduct an impartial investigation and render a decision which may involve a dismissal of the complaint or a nullification of the election of a candidate. Any political party or independent candidate affected by such decision shall not later than seven days appeal against it to the Supreme Court.The Elections Commission shall within seven days of receipt of the notice of appeal, forward all the records in the case to the Supreme Court, which not later than seven days thereafter, shall hear and make its determination. If the Supreme Court nullifies or sustains the nullification of the election of any candidate, for whatever reasons, the Elections commission shall within 60 days of the decision of the Court conduct new elections to fill the vacancy. If the court sustains the election of a candidate, the Elections Commission shall act to effectuate the mandate of the Court.”“The committee proposes for consideration of the plenary that if these proposed amendments to the Constitution are approved by this plenary, it should be returned to the joint committee for the final language of the law, which will be finally voted upon by plenary, before submission to the House of Representatives, for its concurrence and onward submission to the people of Liberia for referendum to amend the Constitution,” the joint committee report said.Earlier, Senator Sherman contested that since the report was already circulated among all the 30 Senators “it now requires a debate and adoption; that there is no need to have read it before we debate it. So I move, Sir, that we dispense of the reading of the report and proceed with the debate and adoption. ”The Senate plenary however, accepted the report but set the debate to another sitting to determine the next course of action.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

“No money, no work” – City Hall employees

first_imgUnpaid salariesWorkers attached to City Hall on Thursday staged another public demonstration to air their concerns regarding unpaid salaries and other benefits by the Mayor and City Council.“No money, no work!” and “We fed up of the same thing over and over!” were the cries of the employees as they demanded their salaries.This is in light of the constant excuses offered by the Georgetown Municipality, which has said that as a result of the delay in a number of projects, sums of money which were meant for the payment of salaries are yet to materialize.According to the protesters, City Hall workers expect to be paid by the 26th ofA section of the protesters calling for their salaries in front of City Hallevery month, but despite November being well underway, they are still awaiting their salaries for October.“This is not right. We are working month to month. We cannot be getting October salary late in November. This is not right. What will happen to December?” disgruntled workers relayed.City Hall on Thursday promised immediate action to remedy the situation; but despite such assurances, the workers were not convinced. Another protester lashed out at the City Hall administration, saying, “They might say that yeah, but tomorrow they will come and you gone hear, ‘Oh continue working, continue working’.”Enraged by empty promises, the woman further contended, “I got Courts to pay. Courts ringing down me phone…When you gat to pay late fee, Council ain’t giving you that extra late fee money.”Meanwhile, others commenting on the deplorable situation argued that, “This is unfair. We working whole month. You gotta be sweating, collecting cuss from them stall owners in the market to collect Council rates, and you still can’t get you money. Them thing this could be fair?”Adding to that, the workers are calling for other financial benefits, such as deductions for payments to the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) as well as installments to their credit unions.At the forefront of the public protest early Thursday morning was the former Deputy Mayor of Georgetown, Sherod Duncan.Duncan underlined that City Hall and its workers are constantly under distress, and he had no hesitation in pinning the blame on the poor leadership of Town Clerk Royston King.“We owing our solid waste contractors over $400 million is a direct result of the Town Clerk’s stewardship of the City’s finances. How much more can we go along with the Town Clerk like that? When you have an organization that is failing, you don’t fire the employees, you fire the management; and the Town Clerk is the head of the management of the City and the Town Clerk must go,” he went on to say, calling for King’s head.The protest on Thursday marked the second time for the week that the City Hall workers have downed their tools and taken to the street to demand the payments of their salaries along with their hard-earned benefits.Given that this issue continues to persist almost on a monthly basis, the workers have pledged to prolong their public demonstrations until their concerns have been addressed.last_img read more

Peace River on Green Energy Threat List

first_imgThe Vancouver Sun is out with a report today, suggesting green energy projects represent a threat, to five of the ten most threatend rivers in this province. The report comes from the Outdoor Recreation Council of BC and spokesman Mark Angelo says it underlines the public concern about a flood of private run-of-river power proposals, across the province.

Granger’s refusal to issue elections proclamation suspicious – former Minister

first_imgUnless caretaker President David Granger issues a proclamation that March 2 is Election Day (E-Day), former Minister Leslie Ramsammy said it can only be assumed that elections will be “really and truly” held on that day and that it is not just another hoax.Last week, President Granger announced that elections will be held on March 2, 2020. However, he is yet to issue a proclamation or dissolve Parliament in accordance with the Constitution.To this end, Ramsammy on Sunday posited that “until he issues a proclamation dissolving Parliament and naming a date for elections, the Guyanese people are suspicious that Granger and APNU/AFC are up to no good, working on another fanciful way to disregard March 2 as E-Day”.According to the former Minister, it is not just the PPP Opposition and its supporters demanding that Granger issues the proclamation now, but the international community along with local stakeholders are also asking for a proclamation to declare that E-Day is really March 2.Among the local stakeholders making that call are the Bar Association, the Private Sector Commission (PSC), various chambers of commerce around the country, religious organisations, trade unions, other political parties, such as A New and United Guyana (ANUG) and so on.The international community including the United States, United Kingdom, the European Union, the Commonwealth, the Organisation of American States (OAS) and the International Centre for Democracy (ICD) have also warned the Guyanese Leader to issue the proclamations now.“It seems the only ones who are not bothered about the non-issuance of the proclamations are Granger and his colleagues in APNU/AFC,” Ramsammy stated.He pointed out that since the December 21, 2018 passage of the No-Confidence Motion (NCM) against the APNU/AFC coalition, the Government has been deceitful, causing confusion and chaos, and trying every which way, including blatantly lying and concocting fanciful stories, in order to invalidate the motion and prevent the hosting of early elections, which were due on or before March 21, 2019.“Ten months after the December 21, 2018 NCM, David Granger, the squatting President, in a long-delayed address to the nation, announced that March 2 is the earliest possible date for elections. Granger ignored precedent and did not issue a proclamation to dissolve Parliament or to name a date for election. His refusal to make a proclamation deliberately created confusion, but also provides APNU/AFC with an opportunity for further delays, beyond March 2, 2020,” he noted.The former Minister contended that for those who are accustomed to the “trickery and deceit” by the coalition over the last nine months, the announcement of March 2, 2020, as the “earliest possible date” for election, without the necessary proclamations, heightens suspicion that Granger, APNU/AFC and even the Elections Secretariat are “cooking-up an excuse to invalidate the March 2 E-Day proposal”. This, he noted, will essentially reject the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Chair, Justice Claudette Singh’s, assertion that the body is ready for elections.“If Granger is honest about the March 2 E-Day proposal, then why not issue the proclamations immediately,” he questioned.Ramsammy pointed out that the President’s sycophants insist Granger does not have to issue the proclamation for E-Day and Parliament’s dissolution now because E-Day must be within three months of the dissolution of Parliament. He added that they argued that Granger has up to December 2 to issue the declarations. But according to the former Minister, this is farcical.“…he can issue the proclamation now naming E-Day and the dissolution of the Parliament to take effect on December 2. He does not need to wait for December 2 to issue the proclamation unless he is retaining an option to change the date,” Ramsammy stressed.He went on to opine that given the trickery and deceit Guyana has witnessed since December 21, 2018, there is “genuine suspicion” that the Granger-led APNU/AFC is presently engaged in an intense search for an excuse to abandon the March 2 E-Day announcement.“E-Day, March 2, 2020, is already one year after the deadline for the elections necessitated by the December 21, 2018, NCM. In fact, the proposed E-Day is almost 15 months since the NCM. It is an inconvenient truth, but Granger has, in effect, illegally suspended the NCM, totally breaching the Constitution. Only dictators do that,” the former Minister insisted.Ramsammy further outlined that one clue that the coalition Administration plans to push E-Day beyond March 2 is the rogue behaviour of the Elections Secretariat, which he said appears to serve Granger and not GECOM.He noted that the Keith Lowenfield-led Secretariat issued a proclamation to start the Claims and Objections (C&O) for the Preliminary Voters’ List (PLE) for 49 days when GECOM itself agreed that it will be 35 days.Added to this, he said that GECOM has also advised people that every citizen must appear in person at a GECOM office or their names would be taken off the voters’ list – something that was never agreed to by the seven-member Commission.Ramsammy said this move comes on the heels of not just the Chief Justice, Roxane George, declaring it illegal to remove names from the voters’ list but also the Secretariat inserting these unapproved changes in the proclamation and dishonestly getting an unsuspecting Chair to sign it.On this note, he called for the GECOM Chair to take a firm stance to expose and stop the Secretariat’s rogue posture.last_img read more

Southampton boss claims referee made ‘clear mistake’ in Liverpool defeat

first_imgSouthampton manager Ronald Koeman claimed referee Kevin Friend made a “clear mistake” by not awarding his side a penalty when midfielder Filip Djuricic was felled by Joe Allen during the 2-0 defeat by Liverpool at St Mary’s stadium on Sunday.Despite sympathising with match officials, an aggrieved Koeman said he expects good decisions in the Premier League as Saints had three separate appeals waved away, but insisted he does not want any favours.Djuricic collided with Emre Can inside the opening minute, before his altercation with Allen, and Dejan Lovren’s handball late in the first half added to the 51-year-old’s frustration.“It’s not about giving favours,” the former Feyenoord boss said. “I don’t expect favours; I expect good decisions in situation in the box.“In one situation [the second Djuric appeal] it is a clear penalty. The first and the third are more difficult to see what exactly happened. But the second is a clear penalty and that is a mistake of the referee.“Referees are humans, but I call it unlucky. I don’t speak about favours but I expect when it’s a clear penalty for the referee to blow his whistle, but he didn’t.”Koeman did praise his team for being “dominant” against Liverpool, but conceded his team is struggling for form in front of goal.Southampton have netted just once in their last four league matches, when Sadio Mane grabbed a late winner against Queens Park Rangers in February. “I was impressed by my team in the first half,” he added. “I thought we were the dominant team against a big, big Liverpool so there were a lot of positives.“But in football it’s all about scoring goals and we are struggling to score, not about creating because we are creating good chances, but we don’t score.“We have to keep the confidence in the players and keep working so it is no problem.”last_img read more
