Cable U-Turn over uni fees

first_img VINCE Cable, the business secretary, yesterday completed a remarkable volte-face on university tuition fees and threw his weight behind Lord Browne’s report, which has recommended a massive rise in student contributions. Cable also dropped his long-time support for a graduate tax, insisting that it was simply “not feasible” given the parlous state of the country’s public finances. In the run up to the general election, the Liberal Democrats made much of the fact they were the only major political party to oppose any rise in tuition fees. “We will resist, vote against, campaign against, a rise in tuition fees,” Lib?Dem leader Nick Clegg said at the time. But yesterday Cable insisted the Browne report was “on the right lines”. Browne, a former chief executive of BP, has recommended that the £3,290 cap on tuition fees should be lifted, effectively allowing universities to charge as much as they like. However a tapered levy on universities that charge more than £6,000 is expected to stop fees spiralling out of control. If a university charges £12,000 instead of £11,000, it would only keep £250 of the extra revenue, whereas moving from £6,000 to £7,000 would net the institution an extra £600. Proceeds for the levy are expected to help the government underwrite the cost of much higher student loans.But there is likely to be dissent within the Lib Dem ranks. Deputy leader Simon Hughes, a standard bearer for disaffected MPs, yesterday said the report would “not be the last word on policy for funding higher education”.“All the Liberal Democrat MPs are very conscious of the positions we have taken on higher education and the policies we campaigned for at the last election,” he said in a thinly-veiled warning to the party’s leaders.

At gala dinner in New York, hundreds pay tribute to Ramsey Clark and International Action Center

first_imgRamsey Clark and granddaughters Taylor and Paige Clark. Karima Al-Amin Alicia Jrapko Teresa Gutierrez Ramsey ClarkWW photo: Brenda RyanThe event at historic Riverside Church’s Assembly Hall the evening of Jan. 12 will long be remembered. Over 350 political, community and anti-war activists, along with U.N. diplomats and consular officials from Cuba, Venezuela, Peru, Iran and Serbia, celebrated both the 85th birthday of human-rights lawyer and former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark and the 20th anniversary of the International Action Center, an anti-imperialist, anti-racist organization that Clark founded in 1992.The evening reflected a broad leftist spectrum of respect and admiration for Clark and his principled stances throughout his life.The gala event began with a delectable buffet of mainly Latin American, South Asian and Middle Eastern hors d’oeuvres and dishes prepared and donated by IAC staff and other activist volunteers.The evening’s program was co-chaired by gala coordinators LeiLani Dowell, an IAC organizer, journalist and lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer activist; and Sara Flounders, an IAC co-director and United National Antiwar Coalition organizer. Father Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann — former Foreign Minister of Nicaragua’s Sandinista government, former U.N. General Assembly president and chair of the gala host committee — sent a videotaped message praising Clark’s humanitarian works.One of the IAC’s first tasks was to oppose the first U.S.-led Gulf war against Iraq and subsequent U.S. government sanctions, which eventually killed an estimated 1 million Iraqis, the majority of them children, and destroyed Iraq’s infrastructure. Over the years Clark led numerous U.S. solidarity delegations to Iraq to bring medicines and crucial aid.The IAC started out as “an experiment,” said Flounders. “Could we put the greatest focus on the most oppressed? Some were uncomfortable with this approach, even good and skilled people. But some embraced it. And we moved forward. The experiment continues, while we keep focusing on unity, on building and rebuilding unity. Because unity is what is needed.”At least three-fourths of the room responded when she asked who has ever relied on the IAC to stand.Solidarity with the most oppressedPolitical prisoners played a major role by embracing and promoting the commemorative event. Dowell introduced an audiotaped message from Mumia Abu-Jamal, the long-time revolutionary and prisoner known worldwide as the “voice of the voiceless,” who praised the work of Clark and the IAC. Mumia credited the IAC with holding protests against the impending U.S. wars against Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003. His entire message can be found at workers.org.Pam Africa, from International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the MOVE organization, said the IAC was instrumental in organizing Millions For Mumia. She also expressed gratitude to Clark for his role in many struggles.Alicia Jrapko, a representative of the International Committee to Free the Cuban Five, read a message from Gerardo Hernández, one of the five Cubans unjustly imprisoned inside the U.S. since 1998 for defending Cuba against U.S.-backed terrorist plots. “Ramsey Clark … has been a clear and consistent voice for peace and justice, and this is something that the Cuban Five and all the Cuban people know well,” stated Hernández.Ralph Poynter, the spouse of people’s lawyer and political prisoner Lynne Stewart and member of the New Abolitionist Movement, read Stewart’s letter in tribute to Clark. Karima Al-Amin, an attorney and spouse of political prisoner Imam Jamil Al-Amin (formerly H. Rap Brown), came from Atlanta with her son to thank Clark for his legal support for Al-Amin, who is serving a life sentence in a federal prison.Many struggles representedOther speakers included Carol Nixon, Mission of Social Justice of Riverside Church; Sissy Farenthold, former Texas legislator; Abdeen Jabara, past president, American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee; Gloria La Riva, Answer Coalition, National Committee to Free the Cuban Five and Party for Socialism and Liberation; Imam Ashrafuz Zaman Khan, Islamic Circle of North America; Larry Holmes, first secretary of Workers World Party and Bail Out the People Movement founder; John Philpot, president of the Defense Counsel Association, Quebec; and Carol Delgado, consul of the Venezuelan Mission.Cultural performers during the evening were singers Jen Waller and Hussain Ajhabeizzadeh; actor and spoken-word artist Vinie Burrows; and Serbian pianist and IAC activist Milos Raickovich.Another gala coordinator, Teresa Gutierrez, an IAC co-director and May 1 Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights organizer, described Clark: “Ramsey could have been making millions of dollars on Wall Street with his background. He could have had limousines picking him up and never have to pick up a single bag himself. But he chose to commit class suicide and decided instead to defend the oppressed, instead of helping to oppress them.”She went to say, “As long as there are Colombian workers at death’s door; as long as Mumia and the Cuban Five, Puerto Rican political prisoners and Leonard Peltier are in jail; as long as there are mass incarcerations and mass deportations; as long as there are Trayvon Martins and Ramarley Grahams; as long as Palestine is not free; as long as Cuba is blockaded; as long as there are U.S. troops in the Philippines, Korea or anywhere; as long as Puerto Rico is a colony; as long as the people of this country remain subjected to racism, sexism, lesbian/gay/bi/trans oppression, hunger, homelessness and unemployment, [the IAC’s] doors will remain open!”Ramsey Clark was then given a thunderous standing ovation as he came to the stage to blow out candles on a birthday cake presented by his granddaughters, Taylor Clark and Paige Clark. The whole crowd sang happy birthday to him.Clark gave a brief, humble talk acknowledging the heroic contributions of ailing Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez to the ongoing liberation of Latin America; echoing a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King’s 1967 speech at Riverside Church that the U.S. is “the world’s biggest purveyor of violence”; and reaffirming the struggle to demand that the U.S. government meet people’s human needs, not feed the Pentagon budget.Those who attended were uplifted by the strong political celebration, including Victor Toro, a Chilean activist facing deportation from the U.S., who told WW, “This was an extraordinary event, a very important event.” Suzanne Ross, a leader of New York’s Free Mumia Coalition, called it “a true movement-building event, an occasion to remind us all how much we need each other, depend on each other, and must support each other in fighting this monster that only gets bigger and more vicious with time.”The gala also raised funds to help the Solidarity Center, home to the International Action Center and other activist groups, move to a new office space — located at 147 West 24th Street in Manhattan — at the end of January.To see video footage of the Clark/IAC gala, including highlights of the IAC in struggle, as well as slide shows, audio and written statements of solidarity, and other information, go to ramseyclarkiacgala.com.WW photos: G.

Healthcare workers for all workers

first_imgNational Nurses United (NNU) called it the “largest hospital union victory in the South since 1975.”  On Sept. 16, in a National Labor Relations Board election, RNs voted by more than 70% to unionize Mission Hospital in Asheville, N.C. — one of the most anti-worker states in the U.S.Asheville, N.C., nurses vote ‘Yes’ to unionize, in landslide vote for National Nurses United.NNU is a militantly anti-racist union engaged in working class struggle around the U.S., but especially in the South, including workplaces in North Carolina, Florida and Texas. NNU fights to orient health care workers in the quantitatively most productive sector of the U.S. economy toward aligning with working class and oppressed people, rather than with capitalist interests. NNU has been on the frontlines against the COVID-19 pandemic from the outset.“Throughout the entire campaign, we’ve been acutely aware that this fight isn’t just for us and our working conditions — this is about the health and well-being of our community,” said Kelly Graham, palliative care RN, in an NNU press release. On Sept. 16, Graham and the NNU won for their community.Southern unionismThe significance of this victory as the largest Southern union win since 1975 is related to events in North Carolina in 1979, when rank-and-file workers and the Communist Workers Party were organizing textile mills in Greensboro.On Nov. 3 that year, the Ku Klux Klan killed CWP organizers and allies Dr. James Waller and Dr. Michael Nathan — two medical doctors, William Evan Sampson, Cesar Cauce and Sandra Neely Smith, a nurse and former student body president of Bennett College, which is one of only two historically Black colleges for women. Also involved in the murders were members of the American Nazi Party and various federal and local law enforcement agencies. The impact of these murders was, and still is, incalculable in North Carolina. Every day of struggle for Black liberation and worker power in the state since then has taken place in the context of the horrific attack.The successful union drive in Asheville over 40 years later testifies both to the power of solidarity and to the harsh conditions for workers in North Carolina and throughout the South.A victory against systemic white supremacyWhite supremacy pervades every aspect of life in the U.S., but rarely is it more obvious than in corporate medicine, where racial disparities in outcomes are often worse than in education or even in the so-called justice system. Throughout North Carolina, Black, Indigenous and/or Latinx people have lower life expectancies and birth weights, higher COVID-19 infection rates and death rates, and higher rates of poverty as a result of medical expenses, compared to workers who are not nationally oppressed.HCA Healthcare, the largest U.S. for-profit health care company, owns Mission Hospital in Asheville and waged a vicious anti-union campaign against NNU. But HCA’s program of white supremacist health care was defeated. Its stock prices have been falling since the results of the union vote were announced.Asheville is a concrete win especially for Black working class patients served by Mission Health. Unionized health care provides better outcomes for all patients, and especially reduces racial disparities, which are often largest in the South. (tinyurl.com/y2r7774q)A union is the most powerful tool available to empower workers of all nationalities to recognize their shared interests with the communities they serve and oppose white supremacy advanced by bosses and shareholders. Expanding healthcare accessThe Southern Workers Medicare for All Campaign, launched by NNU and sibling radical unions UE (United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers) and International Longshore Association Local 1422, has built a powerful movement throughout the South. NNU has shown the power to make demands of HCA and others who prevent equitable provision of healthcare. (tinyurl.com/y2noo6fa)There is profound power in recognition by NNU that health care is a service provided by workers, for workers, and that reactionary governments and private industries only serve to harm workers and to bankroll billionaires. The victory in Asheville shifts the balance of power closer to justice. On Sept 13, the Southern Workers Assembly heard from Mission Valley nurses and other health care workers during the “Safe Jobs Save Lives” webinar. These workers are engaged in many different fights to demand safety for workers and patients, as well as to dismantle the broken U.S. for-profit health care system and replace it with Medicare for All.

There were two champaign glasses and bottle of champaign chilling in a crystal bucket.We three stood there not saying a word.

Tater was sampling the crumpets.Being courteous Southern belles, we decided against a picnic by the lake. We needed to give those folks at the honeymoon hotel time to make arrangements for different accommodations for us.We went into Walnut Creek for supper, laughing all the way there … and back.Upon our return, our honeymoon room had been rearranged. The table with the tea and crumpets was gone. The candles had been snuffed; the champaign had been replaced with sparkling grape juice and four clear plastic cups and the Everly Brothers were playing on the radio. A cot had been wedged in where the table once sat.We took turns in the jacuzzi and sipped the sparkling grape juice while we very quietly played Pic Up Sticks with Tater who was wrapped in a His bathrobe.Tater got the cot and Sis, June Bug and I, slept head to feet under the white rose embossed coverlet.We slipped out of the honeymoon hotel just before sunup never to return.No. Tater Bug probably won’t tell his bride about his first honeymoon but, if he happens to think about it, a smile will surely cross his face.
