Halifax economist Martin Ellis said gains in the last two months had reversed the price falls reported between April and June, leaving prices at a similar level to where they were at the end of 2009 and that activity has also been static so far this year.“These developments suggest that the market is broadly stable with house price inflation having cooled since last year when supply shortages helped to push up prices,” Ellis said.“We expect that UK house prices will remain static overall in 2010.” Rival mortgage lender Nationwide reported last week that house prices fell 0.9 per cent last month – the sharpest fall since February due to a rise in the number of properties available.Howard Archer of Global Insight said: “The very modest 0.2 per cent rise reported by the Halifax in August does not fundamentally alter our view that house prices will ease back over the final months of 2010 and very likely soften modestly further in 2011.“Specifically, we suspect house prices will fall back by some ten per cent in total.” whatsapp Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Ocupar ICE SATX, un faro de esperanza

first_imgSan Antonio, 4 de agosto – Ocupar ICE SATX, la ocupación de 24 horas de SATX comenzó oficialmente con una asamblea general el 17 de julio, así como canto y carteles mientras se armaba el campamento. El campamento está ubicado en el borde del estacionamiento de la Oficina de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas en un tramo de césped que técnicamente no es propiedad de la ciudad o ICE, cuya oficina discreta se encuentra debajo de un paso superior de la carretera.Compañeros de todo el espectro de la izquierda se reunieron en San Anto, Tejaztlan, para mostrar solidaridad y apoyo a las familias indígenas/latinx encarceladas bajo la política de separación ilegal de la familia estadounidense. Estuvieron allí para dar apoyo moral a los presos, algunos de los cuales aún no han recibido la atención médica necesaria.Presentes fueron los Boinas Marrones Autónomos, la Red de Estudiantes Autónomos y la Red Contract Todo, cuyos miembros formaron el movimiento Ocupar ICE SATX y representan una muestra representativa de grupos de izquierda descentralizados en el centro/sur de Texas.Durante los últimos 18 días, la ocupación ha continuado con tres o cuatro personas presentes a lo largo del día y aproximadamente el mismo número por la noche durante la primera semana. A medida que aumentaba la conciencia y el apoyo, creció en la segunda semana a aproximadamente el doble de esos números.Los ocupantes han realizado mítines de ruido la mayoría de los días de la semana, generalmente con unas 15 personas, y por la tarde, cuando los autobuses con detenidos están programados para llegar. El canto, los gritos de los megáfonos, el canto y el clamor de los objetos domésticos haciendo percusiones improvisadas se podían escuchar a través del vecindario. Curiosos empleados de ICE acudieron en masa a sus ventanas, y agentes de Seguridad Nacional se congregaron en el estacionamiento, repletos de equipos tácticos y perros de servicio, en una respuesta urgente a la protesta legal, no violenta y bajo la ley.Los ocupantes levantaron sus voces, recordando que “Nadie es ilegal en tierra robada” y aconsejando a los espectadores a “¡Renunciar a su trabajo!”. Esto atrajo la atención de los equipos locales de TV, lo que a su vez causó que el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional redirigiera o cancelara el transporte en autobús de prisioneros en varios días.Los reaccionarios del “Frente Patriota”, aspirantes a kossacks que son parte del pogromo de inmigración de Estados Unidos, intentaron atacar el campamento el sábado 29 de julio por la mañana. Pero los ocupantes se mantuvieron firmes, sin violencia. No se desencadenarían en reacción, y solo incurrirían en vandalismo leve y una bandera robada. “Asher”, un ocupante del campamento, declaró: “ICE tiene un gran interés en las operaciones de los grupos nacionalistas blancos. El trabajo de ICE es la realización de los manifiestos de esos grupos “.La noticia del ataque se extendió a los miembros de la comunidad que luego salieron y mostraron aún más apoyo durante la segunda semana. Los amigos de los ocupantes y los ciudadanos locales interesados de un amplio espectro racial y de clase donaron artículos necesarios: comida, sillas, mantas, juguetes, crayones, pañales y otros artículos para niños.Alrededor de 50 familias viajan a las instalaciones de ICE cada mañana de lunes a viernes para tratar de visitar a sus seres queridos encarcelados y buscan información sobre sus casos de inmigración. Para los niños y padres que visitan a los prisioneros, el campamento ahora tiene suministros muy necesarios, una despensa completa y refrigeración improvisada.Una noche típica en Occupy SATX consiste en cocinar, escuchar música y reflexionar sobre las acciones directas de cada día–un faro de esperanza.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Great concern over continued detention of British journalist

first_img Follow the news on Palestine April 2, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Great concern over continued detention of British journalist RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes May 28, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders today voiced its serious concern about the continued detention in the Gaza Strip of British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reporter Alan Johnston and appealed to the Palestinian Authority president and prime minister to take a tougher line with his kidnappers to obtain his release. “He has now been held for 21 days, longer than any other journalist kidnapped there. This is a turning-point for media workers in the Strip, many of whom have stayed away since the recent clashes there between Fatah and Hamas supporters, since armed groups use foreign journalists as bargaining chips with the authorities. Fifteen foreign journalists have been kidnapped in the Gaza Strip since last August. Most were freed quickly without being mistreated but two Americans among them were held for more than two weeks.Palestinian journalists have campaigned vigorously for Johnston’s release with demonstrations and strikes, including protests today in Ramallah and Gaza. Johnston, the main BBC correspondent in Gaza, was seized on 12 March by armed men who stopped his car as he left his office for home and forced him to follow them. No demands have been made public since then.

Israeli soldiers continue to target Palestinian photographers in West Bank

first_img Follow the news on Israel RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes June 3, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists May 5, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Israeli soldiers continue to target Palestinian photographers in West Bank News RSF_en Palestinian press photographers have always been targeted by the Israel Defence Forces and at least three have been arrested and two others have been physically attacked by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank since the start of April. “These incidents must stop,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The IDF must investigate them and punish the soldiers responsible.”In the latest incident, an Israeli soldier fired a tear-gas grenade at Muammar Jamil Awad, a photographer with the Palestinian news agency Wafa, while he was covering the weekly protest in Beit Jala (a village 10 km south of Jerusalem) against the Israeli separation wall. He was taken directly to Jerusalem’s Sheari Tzedek hospital for treatment to a head injury.An Israeli soldier arrested Najeh Al-Hashlamoun, a photographer with the ABA news agency, while he was covering clashes between Palestinians and IDF troops in Beit Omar, a village to the north of Hebron, on 24 April. Al-Hashlamoun was released 45 minutes later but his camera was confiscated. The clashes were prompted by the seizure of land belonging to Palestinians.Muhib Al-Barghouti, a photographer with the newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, was detained by the IDF while covering the weekly demonstration against the separation wall in Bili’n (outside Ramallah) on 23 April. He was released at 8 a.m. the next day. During the demonstration, Agence France-Presse photographer Abbas Al-Moumni was injured as a result of a shot fired by an Israeli soldier.Haytham Al-Khatib, a photographer for the Al-Lajna Al-Sha’biya (Popular League) website and the Friends of Freedom and Justice NGO, was arrested by the IDF while covering the weekly demonstration in Bili’n on 9 April. He told Reporters Without Borders: “They took me to a military camp and hit me while my hands were handcuffed behind my back. I was released at about midnight.”The IDF also prevented several Palestinian photographers and cameramen from covering clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli soldiers in Beit Awa (a village near Hebron) on 26 April following an IDF raid on the home of a member of the Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.The IDF is still on the Reporters Without Borders list of Predators of Press Freedom, an updated version of which was released on 3 May.

Appeal court lifts ban on daily, but confirms jail for two journalists

News News Follow the news on Omancenter_img Omani newspaper journalists freed pending outcome of appeal OmanMiddle East – North Africa ImprisonedFreedom of expression RSF_en to go further Joint letter to the Sultan of Oman on the right of press freedom and the targeting of journalists and human rights defenders Receive email alerts News The sentences of editor Ibrahim al-Maamari and deputy editor Youssef al-Haj were reduced to six months and a year, respectively. The two journalists were originally sentenced to three years in prison for “undermining the prestige of the state and misusing the Internet.”The appeal court quashed the conviction of a third Azamn journalist, Zaher al-Abri, who was given a one-year jail term at the original trial in September. And the appeal court rescinded the order issued at the original trial confirming the information ministry’s 10 August decision to close the daily. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes the possibility of Azamn resuming publication in the near future but deplores the fact that the jail terms of two of the journalists were reduced rather than overturned. Maamari and Haj committed no crime and should therefore not be in prison.The journalists’ lawyer, Yaqoub Al-Harithy, appealed the decision to the Supreme Court. Reporters Without Borders joins Al-Harithy in demanding the release of the two journalists as they await the start of the appeal trial, which could take up to one year. The Gulf Center for Human Rights confirms that Ibrahim al-Maamari and Youssef al-Haj were transferred to the central prison to serve their sentences, following the issuance of the appeal court’s verdict on 26 December.It remains to be seen whether Azamn will really be able to resume functioning. Khaled Ibrahim of the Gulf Center for Human Rights said the information ministry could still block its reopening. RSF is also concerned about its ability to operate properly with its editor and deputy editor still in prison.The newspaper was closed after publishing a story about alleged government corruption and pressure on judges to grant privileges to persons in positions of influence. Following their arrests in July and August, the three journalists were given their jail sentences on 26 September.The Sultanate of Oman is ranked 125th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
