Barclays Capital had 10.1 per cent market share whilst Deutsche Bank had 7.7 per cent. In Europe, two loans to support LBOs have been announced in January so far; the Blackstone led buyout of Mivisa Envases and the 3i Group buyout of Amor GmbH.

The favourite Russian en route to his semifinals had sent two world champions packing earlier in the day.“I am much relieved after two close bouts. I knew he is a good wrestler but he was very desperate in the second period. He attacked unexpectedly which helped him gain two points in the last minute,” said Punia, speaking from Budapest.“When opponent is down, he normally goes all out attack in the last minute. I was trying to defend my lead but I need to be careful about this in the final. I have lost crucial points in the last couple of bouts in dying seconds and can’t repeat the same,” added Punia.Asked if he had time to watch the Japanese in action, Punia said: “I watched a bit of it after my match. He was overpowering his Russian rival. I will watch his video and plan how to tackle him along with my coaching staff,” added Punia.Click here to catch all the live action and highlights of the UWW World Wrestling Championship BudapestThe first period of the semi-final was not as tense as one expected it to be, particularly in the light of his bronze medal-winning performance from Paris world championships last year. But the Indian was too good with his defense and attacked the Cuban’s leg. On the first takedown he opened the account with two points but conceded one for the step out to his opponent.But, summoning his experience and with a wonderful performance from Asian Games to back, Punia added two more points for the takedown to lead 4-1 at the end of the first period.The first three minutes of the second period proved to be very defensive as the Cuban ably avoided the Indian but in the last minute attacked well and earned two points for the take down and another for the step out by the Indian. But with a strong defence the Indian ensured that he did not relax yet again and give away unnecessary points with 20-odd seconds to spend on the mat.Punia said he would definitely go for the gold tomorrow, saying, “I want to win gold like Sushil (Kumar). I want to do it for my country and I need all the countrymen’s blessings,” he added.Earlier, in a thrilling quarterfinal, the Indian held upper hand until the last minute, leading 4-1. But Punia conceded to his Mongolian opponent, Tulga Tumur Ochir, three crucial points before wrapping up the match with a score line of 5-3.Meanwhile, Sonba Tanaji Gongane lost his repechage bout to Mongolian Tuvshintulga Tumenbileg 7-0.

On the picket line

first_imgPuzder withdraws; Acosta also  anti-workerThousands of workers all over the country led the charge against wage-thief, sexist-pig, anti-minimum-wage, multimillionaire-fast-food-owner Andrew Puzder as Trump’s pick for secretary of the Department of Labor. When Puzder withdrew his name from nomination on Feb. 15, it was a great victory for all U.S. workers — and a defeat for sore-loser Trump.However, Trump’s next appointee for the DOL, announced Feb. 16, is no better — and maybe even worse. The Ivy League-educated R. Alexander Acosta, the only son of Cuban immigrants, clerked for Judge Samuel Alito before Alito was appointed to the Supreme Court, was an anti-worker member of the National Labor Relations Board, is currently a Florida law school dean and might be the first Latinx in the Trump cabinet.It’s his actions as an assistant attorney general under President George W. Bush that expose him as a virulent racist. In an Ohio voting rights case in 2007, Acosta sided with Ohio Republicans who engaged in a racially motivated, illegal tactic known as “vote caging” — challenging the credentials of 23,000 mostly Black voters. (Rewire, Feb. 16) Time to mobilize once more to expose and defeat this blatant racist tool of the bosses and enemy of the working class.Momentive workers vote for contractAfter striking since Nov. 2, the 750 workers at Momentive Performance Materials in Waterford, N.Y., agreed on Feb. 14 to a three-year contract that did not have massive health care or 401(k) cuts that the hedge fund bosses demanded in their “take it or leave it” offer. Even though the workers put up a strong defense, it was not a victory, despite a one-time signing payment of $2,000 and a 2 percent raise in June and another in June 2018. There were cuts in health insurance and loss of vacation time for current workers and an end to health insurance for retirees. And the agreement did not immediately bring back 27 workers fired during the strike for alleged misconduct on the picket line or for sabotage inside the plant before the strike. Their cases, to be heard by an independent arbitrator, could drag on for a long time. The vote of IUE/CWA Local 81359 (Electronic Workers/Communication Workers) members was 317-211.While Dennis Trainor, CWA District 1 vice president, who helped negotiate the pact with Gov. Cuomo officials, issued a statement recognizing that “some members felt they didn’t achieve everything they wanted or deserved,” he noted the workers and their families “can be proud of the battle they waged, and … for the amazing support they received from the labor movement, the community and elected officials.” (, Feb. 14)W. Mass Workers Center sets up “Sanctuary in the Streets”The Pioneer Valley Workers Center just initiated an action network, called “Sanctuary in the Streets: the Rapid Response Team of Western Massachusetts,” to support immigrants and stand against hate and deportation. The center, which works with other labor groups in Western Massachusetts, including Pioneer Valley Jobs With Justice, Pioneer Valley Central Labor Council and the ­UMass ­Labor Center, will provide Sanctuary Responder trainings. After filling out a form on its website (, the organization will contact volunteers via email or text to join public actions in support of immigrant communities.Labor organizations and progressive groups are setting up similar rapid response teams around the country. Taking action showing solidarity is a vital way the labor movement can put the long-standing labor slogan, “An injury to one is an injury to all,” into practice.21,000 AT&T Mobility workers begin contract fightMembers of the Communications Workers rallied around the country on Feb. 11 in solidarity with 21,000 AT&T Mobility workers represented by CWA in California and Nevada whose contract expired that day. The workers are now under an extended contract that can be terminated with 72 hours’ notice.AT&T wants to cut jobs by closing retail stores and shifting work to “authorized dealers,” by moving call center jobs overseas and by cutting commissions, among other demands. CWA announced on Feb. 15 that it is taking a two-week, cooling-off period after negotiations had become increasingly “contentious,” with AT&T making ”greedy and retrogressive demands despite their huge profits.” ( Solidarity is needed.

G7 hypocrites protest but exploit the Amazon anyway

first_imgPublished in the Italian journal Il Manifesto on Sept. 3. Translation by John Catalinotto.Faced with the spread of fires in the Amazon, the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, changed its agenda to “tackle the emergency.” The seven — France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Canada and the United States — have assumed, together with the European Union, the role of global firefighters. French President Emmanuel Macron, in his capacity as chief fireman, sounded the alarm: “Our house is on fire.” President Donald Trump has promised the greatest U.S. commitment to extinguishing it. Protest against G7 summit in France on Aug. 24.The media spotlight is on the fires in Brazil, leaving everything else in the shadows. First of all, the fact is that not only the Amazon forest (two-thirds of which is Brazilian), which declined by almost 3,800 square miles each year in 2010-15, is being destroyed, but also the tropical forests of equatorial Africa as well as those in southeast Asia. Tropical forests have lost, on average every year, an area equivalent to that of Piedmont, Lombardy and Veneto as a whole. [About the equivalent of Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts in the U.S. — ed.] Although conditions differ from one world region to another, the fundamental cause is the same: the intensive and destructive exploitation of natural resources to obtain maximum profit. In the Amazon, trees are cut down to obtain valuable wood for export. The remaining forest is burnt [so the land be used] for agriculture and stockbreeding, which is also intended for export. These very fragile lands, once degraded, are abandoned and new areas are deforested. The same destructive method is used, causing serious environmental damage, to exploit the Amazonian deposits of gold, diamonds, bauxite, zinc, manganese, iron, oil and coal. The construction of huge hydroelectric basins to supply energy for industrial activities also contributes to the destruction of the Amazon rainforest. The intensive and destructive exploitation of the Amazon is carried out by Brazilian companies. These companies in turn are basically controlled — through shareholdings, financial mechanisms and commercial networks — by the major multinational and financial groups of the G7 and other countries. For example, JBS, which has 35 meat-processing plants in Brazil where 80,000 cattle are slaughtered a day, has large offices in the U.S., Canada and Australia. It is largely controlled through shares of debt by the following financial creditor groups: JP Morgan (U.S.), Barclays (Britain) and the finance companies of Volkswagen and Daimler (Germany).  Marfrig, in second place after JBS, is 93 percent owned by U.S., French, Italian and other European and North American investors. Norway, which today threatens economic retaliation against Brazil for the destruction of the Amazon, causes serious environmental and health damage in the Amazon with its multinational group Hydro (half of which is state-owned). Hydro exploits bauxite deposits for the production of aluminum — so much so that it has been placed under investigation in Brazil. The governments of the G7 and others, which today formally criticize Brazilian President Bolsonaro in order to clear their conscience in the face of reaction from public opinion, are the same governments that favored his rise to power so that their multinationals and financial groups have even freer hands in the exploitation of the Amazon. The Indigenous communities, in whose territories illegal deforestation activities are concentrated, are especially under attack, under the eyes of Bolsonaro’s Minister of Agriculture Tereza Cristina, whose family of landowners has a long history of fraudulent and violent occupation of the lands of Indigenous communities. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Open letter to the president of the European Commission

first_img May 6, 2020 Find out more to go further 1st February 2005 Dear Mr President,Reporters Without Borders wishes to inform you of its deep disappointment that the EU council of foreign ministers on 31 January 2005 agreed to a six-month suspension of EU sanctions* that were adopted in June 2003 to protest at the March 2003 arrest of 75 dissidents and journalists.In a letter sent to the representatives of the 25 member states on 27 January, our organisation urged that the policy of supporting the dissidents should be “maintained and even strengthened” in view of “the absence of any noticeable progress in respect for freedom of the press in the country.”Even if the 31 January decision envisages developing more intense relations with the peaceful political opposition and broader layers of civil society in Cuba, it constitutes a step backwards by ending invitations to dissidents to member states’ national day celebrations. This aspect in particular allowed dissidents to step out of the Cuba-US standoff in which President Castro’s government attempts to confine them.We urge you to rigorously monitor the situation so that the announced intensification of relations with the opposition and Cuban civil society is not limited simply to meetings. We expect the EU, for example to be represented at the dissidents’ general meeting on 20 May, called by the (unofficial) Assembly for the Promotion of Civil Society headed by economist Marta Beatriz Roque.We also urge you to ensure that European cooperation programmes with Cuba also benefit civil society that is not recognised by the authorities. It seems to us essential that, to work for a peaceful democratic transition, the EU support independent press agencies, trade unions, organisations of librarians, doctors, economists and so on, whose freedom of association, meeting and expression are constantly trampled.Reporters Without Borders considers that the EU must take these steps now, making the Cuban authorities understand that if they oppose them sanctions would have to be re-applied.Failure to take such steps would mean that the EU decision would effectively look like “caving in” to the Cuban government, which is the fear of a section of the Cuban opposition. We remind you that the release of around a dozen dissidents in 2004 was not accompanied by any significant progress towards respect for political freedom and multi-parties. Sixty-one of the 75 dissidents and journalists arrested in March 2003, whose release the EU has demanded, are still in prison.Our organisation hopes that you will make yourself personally responsible for this case. Reporters Without Borders will be particularly vigilant about the results of the EU decision.I trust that you will give this letter your careful consideration.Yours sincerely, New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council News One day after the EU agreed to lift sanctions adopted against Cuba, Reporters Without Borders expressed its disappointment at the move and urged José Manuel Barroso, to rigorously monitor the “deepening of relations announced with the opposition and Cuban civil society so it is not limited simply to meetings.” News Follow the news on Cuba Organisation News Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet CubaAmericas center_img February 1, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to the president of the European Commission CubaAmericas Help by sharing this information Robert MénardSecretary General*To press for the release of the 75 journalists and dissidents arrested in March 2003, EU member states decided on 5 June 2003, to cut back cooperation with the Cuban authorities, to limit high level bilateral government visits, to reduce the size of member states participation at cultural events and to invite Cuban dissidents to national day celebrations. The 75 dissidents were sentenced in the days following their arrest to jail terms ranging from six to 28 years in prison.
