Jagdeo criticises Henry for racialising issue

first_imgRecent statements made by Education Minister Nicolette Henry in Parliament in relation to allegations of human trafficking have been criticised by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, who claimed that the Minister was more interested in making the issue about race, instead of trying to find a solution.Minister Nicolette HenryHe was referring to the recent meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs, which was held in the Parliament Chambers on Wednesday, June 13. The meeting also saw Citizenship Minister Winston Felix and Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge in attendance to discuss possible human trafficking.While the main contention is that there has been a large influx of Haitian nationals entering Guyana, with very few of them leaving, Henry sought to question why focus was not placed likewise on citizens of Bangladesh.“Why emphasis was being placed on the number of Haitians not departing Guyana, since if an analysis of the figures from a percentage perspective was conducted, then it would show a 30 per cent non-departure rate for persons from Bangladesh. Why not the Bangladeshis?” she questioned.However, the latest statistics provided to Parliament showed that the problem lay with those coming from the French Caribbean island nation and not necessarily Bangladesh.Statistics provided to the House showed that from 2015 to April 30, 2018, a total of 6245 Haitians arrived in Guyana, but only 963 were recorded to have left. This means that there are 5282 Haitians still in Guyana. In the case of persons coming to Guyana from Bangladesh, the numbers were less alarming.It was also reported that from 2015 to April 30, 2018, a total of 247 Bangladeshis arrived in Guyana and 147 were recorded to have left. This means that there are 104 Bangladeshis still in Guyana. However, it was explained that a majority of the remaining 104 have valid work permits.Jagdeo said: “Henry showed no comprehension skills whatsoever. This is about trafficking. She made it about race. We don’t have problem with people coming here, working here, so long as they follow the laws. It is about the reports that people are paying thousands … and are trafficked through Guyana.”The Minister’s comments were also criticised by independent statisticians and financial experts who claimed that it was extremely disturbing that she showed her lack of elementary and basic training in primary school statistics, which advises on the concept of absolute change versus relative change.Absolute change refers to the difference between two indicators (2016 vs 2017, arrivals vs departures in a particular period and so on). Relative change expresses the absolute change as a percentage of the value of the indicators in the earlier period (Absolute change between 2016 and 2017 as a percentage of the 2016 values).These experts have said if one were to use Henry’s logic that 30 per cent of the Bangladeshis did not leave Guyana in 2017, then she must be professional enough to tell the full truth around this 30 per cent because it translates to 11 Bangladeshis. “If one compares those 11 Bangladeshis who made themselves into illegal aliens in Guyana in 2017 to the other nationalities the picture is very different from the image Henry is trying to paint,” one expert said.It was further noted that some 7255 Cubans and 3224 Haitians overstayed their time in Guyana in 2017 compared to these 11 Bangladeshis. Of the 12,585 illegal aliens recorded as domiciled in Guyana in 2017, 83 per cent of them, or 10,479, are Cubans and Haitians. But Henry chose to sensationalise the status of 11 Bangladeshis instead of looking properly at the facts.The Opposition has long claimed that Government may be engaged in some form of human trafficking. The Opposition Leader has claimed if 10,000 false birth certificates were issued, which have the possibility of being used in the registration process especially during elections. He said Guyanese could not afford to become complacent, but must remain vigilant.In early June, it was revealed that several Haitians, both adults and children, were sent back to Haiti after it was suspected by the Police that they were reportedly part of a human smuggling ring. The Police had disclosed that the probe had found that some of the Haitians were entering Guyana to travel to other destinations, and that they were doing this for organised reasons.Officials in neighbouring Suriname have claimed that many Haitians have been travelling there by plane on their way to French Guiana, but they could not convince immigration authorities of their onward journey. Back in September 2016, at least 12 Haitian men were caught in Linden heading to neighbouring Brazil.last_img read more

Animal activists to pay up

first_imgBut City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo insisted the plea sends a message to others who would threaten city workers. “This terrorist organization was threatening our city employees,” Delgadillo said. “We support the right of free speech – but not when it results in threats to people who are trying to do their job.” The ADL has been at the forefront of protests against the Department of Animal Services and the number of animals it euthanizes. The group has staged demonstrations, and the homes of some Animal Services workers have been vandalized. Under the plea agreement, members of the ADL have been ordered to remain at least 100 feet from any Animal Services employees and to remove personal information about city workers from its Web site. But Vlasic said the agreement on the Web site would have little practical impact. An animal-rights group has pleaded no contest to criminal charges over accusations it harassed city workers, officials said Friday. The Animal Defense League-Los Angeles pleaded no contest to charges of conspiracy, trespassing, targeted demonstrating and violation of city noise ordinances. It also was ordered to pay $49,600 in fines and penalties and agreed that its top official will refrain from threatening or harassing city workers. Dr. Jerry Vlasic said he believed the fines will end up being about $6,000, and that the decision marked a victory for him, his wife Pam Ferdyn and the league. “We pleaded no contest to resolve this, and all the serious charges were dropped,” Vlasic said. “Our primary goal was to have no restrictions on demonstrations, and we got that. This is an unmitigated victory for us.” “We can’t run lone photos of workers, but we can run pictures of them in groups,” Vlasic said. “We can’t run personal information, such as their home address, but we weren’t doing that anyway.” rick.orlov@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Rashford double ends Jose’s perfect start at Spurs

first_imgSpurs went into the match ahead of United after their mini-revival under their new boss, who replaced the sacked Mauricio Pochettino at the London club last month.Struggling United had made their worst start to a season in 31 years but played with energy and adventure and deserved their win.Smiling manager Solskjaer hailed his youthful side.“The three points are massive for us,” he told the BBC. “We’ve had too many draws this season and given too many points away from winning positions. It’s a great lesson the last two games (Sheffield United and Aston Villa) and we came back in a great manner.“We’ve started the rebuilding. We’ve made decisions that we had to and we’re looking to build this club to be better again and I can’t think short-term when I’m trying to do that.”The home side deservedly took the lead when Rashford beat Paulo Gazzaniga at his near post in the sixth minute — the forward’s 11th goal in his past 13 games for United and England.United could easily have stretched their lead but Gazzaniga made amends by touching a thunderous Rashford shot onto the crossbar.– Rashford threat –Dele Alli (left) celebrates his equaliser against Manchester United at Old Trafford © AFP / Oli SCARFFIt was a far cry from recent disjointed performances against Sheffield United and Aston Villa. Both of those matches ended in draws after United had taken the lead.But despite being a clear second best, Tottenham edged their way back into the game and were on level terms six minutes before half-time thanks to an audacious piece of skill from the in-form Alli.Serge Aurier’s shot was saved and the rebound landed to Alli, whose sweet first touch took the ball away from Ashley Young and Fred. He let it bounce before shooting past David de Gea into the far corner.The England man missed the majority of the early part of the season through injury but has bounced back in style, scoring four times in his past three matches.United would have been disappointed to have been trailing at the break after their impressive first-half showing but they were back in front in the 49th minute when Rashford sent Gazzaniga the wrong way from the spot after being brought down by Moussa Sissoko.United surged forward in search of another goal, with Rashford a constant threat down the left and Daniel James also looking dangerous.Mourinho threw on unsettled midfielder Christian Eriksen in search of an equaliser as the game remained in the balance but despite some late pressure against a nervy United, Spurs left Old Trafford empty-handed.The new Spurs boss, sacked by United last December, described his reception at Old Trafford as “nice and polite”.“It’s a step back against a team that is playing with same objective as us, trying to get up the table and reach the top six,” he said. “We need to keep going. We made mistakes but it’s not good to be crying about them now.”Mourinho won his first three matches in charge of Spurs, with his team scoring 10 goals in the process but he has problems to sort out at the back as he targets a Champions League spot.United are also eyeing the top four despite a big gap to close. They remain eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and just seven points above the relegation zone.0Shares0000(Visited 22 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Marcus Rashford (centre) celebrates his second goal against Tottenham at Old Trafford © AFP / Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 5 – Marcus Rashford spoiled Jose Mourinho’s return to Old Trafford on Wednesday, scoring twice as Manchester United beat Tottenham 2-1 to end their former manager’s perfect start to his tenure at his new club.The England forward put United in front early in the first half and converted a second-half penalty to restore their lead after Dele Alli’s exquisite equaliser as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side leapfrogged Spurs, climbing to sixth in the Premier League table.last_img read more

ANGELS-RED SOX NOTEBOOK Guerrero likely to be back in right

first_imgGuerrero, who hasn’t played right field since Sept.4 because of an inflamed right triceps, is expected to make his long-awaited return to the outfield tonight. Chone Figgins is expected to be moved to center field so that Maicer Izturis can stay in the lineup and play third base. Those moves will force rookie Reggie Willits to the bench. Willits played center field in the AL Division Series opener Wednesday. The only decision remaining will come at designated hitter. Kendry Morales would be able to bat left-handed against Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, but Juan Rivera is also an option. “We’ll look at a couple things,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “Daisuke against lefties and righties, there’s not a huge variance. It’s not like there’s a 100-point swing and you go with one guy or another. We’ll take a look at a couple things.” Guerrero said he is not rushing himself back to right just to open more options for Scioscia. His only reason for returning is that his arm finally feels better. He prefers to play out there anyway, because that is what he is used to. By Doug Padilla STAFF WRITER BOSTON – Vladimir Guerrero’s right arm is feeling better, a development that opens a variety of lineup options. A day after struggling for any kind of offense against a Boston Red Sox starter, the Angels are about to make a number of changes that could get things going. “I spent so much time in the National League playing right field that it feels like I’m home playing right field,” Guerrero said through broadcaster Jose Mota, who was serving as interpreter. “This situation in the American League as the DH had to happen, but it’s just a familiarity to play right field.” A likely lineup would be to bat Figgins first, followed by Orlando Cabrera, Guerrero, Garret Anderson, Rivera/Morales (depending on who gets the DH spot), Casey Kotchman, Howie Kendrick, Izturis and Jeff Mathis in the ninth spot. That lineup best alternates right-handed and left-handed hitters. Mathis is expected to take over at catcher for Mike Napoli. Anderson should play Anderson’s right eye still looked severely swollen Thursday because of conjunctivitis (pink eye), but he is expected to play tonight. Scioscia said he trusts Anderson’s judgment even though Anderson said after Wednesday’s game that his eye is “not where it should be.” Anderson went 0-for-4 against Beckett in Game 1, but did fly out to the warning track in center during his final at-bat. Anderson declined Thursday to talk about his eye. “Unless something unforeseen happens, he’s a guy who has been swinging the bat as well as anybody in baseball for the last 200-300 at-bats and we need him to contribute,” Scioscia said. “Obviously if his eye is not where it needs to be, it’s something to consider. But it’s not at that point.” Escobar as calm as ever Kelvim Escobar was busy downloading stories about Game 1 on his iPhone before Thursday’s workout and hardly gave the appearance of somebody under pressure. Escobar, who won a career-high 18 games this season, will take the mound tonight and try to give the Angels a split of the two games at Boston. A defeat would put the Angels in a 2-0 hole and force them to take the last three games in order to advance. “I feel like I have to go out there and bring my `A’ game,” Escobar said. “It’s not pressure or I feel like everything is on my shoulders. It’s a team effort and we all have to go out there and give our best.” Fans reward Remy Broadcaster and former Boston second baseman Jerry Remy beat a handful of “regular fans” in a landslide in voting for “President of Red Sox Nation.” Remy received 39,120 votes from the more than 70,000 that came in by Internet, text messaging and postcard over a four-day period that ended Tuesday. Remy, who also played for the Angels during his 10-year career, threw out the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday. After lobbing the ball to backup catcher Doug Mirabelli, Remy went over to the front row and shook hands with team chairman Tom Werner. doug.padilla@sgvn.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Alliance says renaissance can come to Sun Valley

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Calling for “elegant growth” in a 2,600-acre “selected study area” of Sun Valley, the plan envisions a community with cleaner businesses, medium-density housing, a technical-arts high school and more trails and parkways.But it also emphasizes keeping businesses and industry in Sun Valley, arguing that businesses as necessary sources of employment and that they should be close to where workers live.City Councilman Tony C?rdenas, who represents most of the area, welcomed the report. But he said developers will need to contribute to make it happen.“Hopefully, this will be read by a lot of people and spark people’s interest to see that Sun Valley – if you’re willing to do a responsible project – would be a good place to come and see about investing some money,” he said.Sun Valley is home to 46,000 people who live amid auto dismantlers, junkyards, defunct landfills, recycling facilities and gravel pits. Dust blows through the streets from landfills and pits, even though the last landfill closed in April. Authors of the report, prepared by the alliance in conjunction with the San Fernando Valley chapter of the American Institute of Architects, hope for a more glamorous landscape of film and television soundstages, businesses that could revitalize the area without hurting the environment.But Jack Kyser, chief economist with the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. and another of the report authors, said bringing a soundstage to Sun Valley would be a challenge.The major studios already have enough space, and while an independent company could do it, that would require financing, which is scarce, he said.Still, Kyser agreed with the plan to revitalize Sun Valley with new businesses.“It would be a home run, to be quite honest,” he said. “I’ve wondered … the type of industry that’s there – why is it there?”But owners of auto-dismantling shops say they are meeting a need.“I believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” said Nathan Adlemcq, the owner of Aadlemcq Bros. Auto Wrecking. “I see a junked car, and I see something beautiful. … I believe economics and the marketplace will dictate what will stand.”Scott said he hopes to see the same process at work, arguing that redevelopment projects that rely on eminent domain – or the government taking private land for the public good – will not work in the area.But developers will grab large parcels themselves when they realize that the land in Sun Valley is valuable – especially with industrial land becoming increasingly scarce, Scott said.There is precedent for the alliance’s plan. It released a similar effort several years ago for another neglected area, Panorama City. It was adopted by the city Planning Commission as a guideline for the area.But since then, the commission hasn’t adopted any specific policies based on the plan.“I think it’s a plus whenever people see a plan like this, and they see that kind of energy. It always helps,” C?rdenas said. “But again this is private property, so it takes developers to make the investments of tens and hundreds of millions of dollars to bring these ideas to fruition.”The Sun Valley report calls for dealing with an increasing population by building medium-density housing near commercial “villages.” And it suggests using the latest urban-planning craze: putting residential units on top of ground-floor commercial space in “mixed-use” developments.But the report also touches on a broad array of subjects, from education to the preservation of the Stonehurst neighborhood as a historic district. It calls for a major outdoor venue, suggests the creation of an industrial-arts and technology high school with four campuses and recommends that special roadways be created to keep trucks off the main thoroughfares.Jerry Piro, 73, a local community activist, said he was pleased with some of the report’s recommendations – but not all of them.“I’m weary when they talk about development because every time they talk about development, they talk about adding more population,” he said.Most residents have some buffer between their homes and the city’s most disruptive businesses. But on Sutter Avenue, next to the Bradley Landfill, about 20 residents live with the dust and rats that come from being so close to the dump. Those residents include Jeremy and Tara Penick.They welcome any plan to improve Sun Valley. He’s a musician with a band called Depswa, and the area near the dump is the only place where the couple can afford to live without any noise complaints when he plays his music. It comes at a cost though: Both suffer from asthma.“I can dust, and an hour later it looks like I haven’t touched it at all,” she said.The plan does not call for all the recycling facilities in Sun Valley to be shut down, and it will take 30 years for the city’s landfills to become public domain, Scott said.But the report envisions ways to improve the area over time and lays out what could be done – ideally.“What we’re putting down on paper,” Scott said, “is ideas to inspire a sense of direction for the future.”alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com(818) 546-3304To view the full “Sun Valley Renaissance” report, click here.In the works Some key elements to revitalize Sun Valley: Environmentally friendly industrial parks. Entertainment-industry support and soundstages. Themed commercial villages and pedestrian-oriented districts. Mixed-use commercial, with businesses on the ground floor and homes above. Major outdoor-event venue, fairgrounds and open space. Landscaping and architecture to block noise from the railroad line. An industrial-arts and technology high school with four campuses. Housing, including some above commercial development, near mass transit. Enhanced access to the Sun Valley Metrolink station, including shuttle buses.

SUN VALLEY – In an ambitious effort to transform one of the San Fernando Valley’s most blighted areas, community and business leaders will release a plan todaycq that calls for commercial “villages” and eco-friendly industrial parks where scrap heaps and auto shops now stand.The 130-page blueprint by the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley aims to end decades of pollution and eyesores in Sun Valley, the Northeast Valley’s dumping ground for trash and “dead” cars.“I’m not going to say Sun Valley is going to become Beverly Hills anytime soon,” said Bob Scott, director of the Mulholland Institute and one of the authors of the report, titled “Sun Valley Renaissance.”But it could become a decent neighborhood with a strong, blue-collar job base, Scott added, and that’s what the plan is aimed at producing.last_img read more
