New Order to suspend paid parking is a done deal, City Hall has no discretion – Minister Bulkan

Georgetown, Guyana – (March 21, 2017) Minister of Communities, Mr. Ronald Bulkan, this evening, signed a new Order to effect the suspension of the Parking Meter Project as of tomorrow, March 22, 2017 for a period of three months. Noting that the Georgetown Mayor and City Council had failed to act on the previous Order following legal opinion, the Minister said, “It appears that there was some ambiguity and the legal opinion that was proffered was that if the Council proceeded on the basis of that Order then it would be a decision of the Council… The Council did not seek to proceed on the basis of executing what it understood clearly as a Cabinet decision to withdraw this paid parking project. Instead it sought a way to frustrate the decision of the Cabinet and this is why I have expressed public dissatisfaction with the action of the Council.” Continue reading “New Order to suspend paid parking is a done deal, City Hall has no discretion – Minister Bulkan”

Factory farming has robbed the people of their most basic and affordable medicine: healthy food. For thousands of years, humans have harnessed the nutritional powers of food to prevent and cure disease. America’s food oligarchy is bent on high yields and pesticide resistance with a blatant disregard for nutritional content. Grow your own nutrient-dense, heirloom vegetables, or seek them out at the farmers’ market; it will be the most rewarding act of treason imaginable.

La concejal de Río de Janeiro Marielle Franco (Psol*), tuvo una de las elecciones más celebradas de los últimos tiempos en la ciudad. Mujer, negra, nacida y criada en el Complexo da Maré*, defensora de los derechos humanos y socióloga, fue la quinta candidata a la Cámara de consejales más votada en 2016, sumando 46.000 electores. Después de asumir el cargo en enero de este año, Marielle ya presenta proyectos que buscan fortalecer los derechos de las mujeres. Uno de ellos es el proyecto de ley “Para afirmar el aborto legal”, que tiene por objetivo cualificar profesionales para informar y garantizar la atención de mujeres que tienen derecho de abortar, en casos de anencefalia, riesgo de muerte y violación. En la Semana internacional de la mujer, Marielle conversó con Brasil de Fato sobre la necesidad de debatir el feminismo y algunas propuestas de su mandato.
