Strategic legal cases and interventions aimed at strengthening the law Melanie May | 3 July 2018 | News Tagged with: equality Establishing a Fawcett strategic legal interventions panel of experts to support this work Former BBC China Editor, Carrie Gracie, is donating her backdated pay from the BBC to gender equality campaigning charity, the Fawcett Society, she announced on Friday 29 June.The money will be used to set up a fund for women who need legal advice on equal pay claims and to support the Fawcett Society’s strategic legal work. The Fawcett Society has been at the forefront of calling for employers to report their gender pay gaps and highlighting that, in some organisations, gender pay reporting will uncover pay inequality which is illegal. The amount of backdated pay is not being released into the public domain at this time. The money will fund: Access to a legal support service provided by YESS Employment Law to help women negotiate equal pay. YESS Law specialise in employment law advice to assist employees and employers to settle legal disputes and if possible maintain the employment relationship. This new service will be initially for women earning below £30K per year without access to advice Sam Smethers, Chief Executive of the Fawcett Society, said:“Our Equal Pay legislation may be nearly 50 years old but the fight for equal pay is very much with us today. Women need real pay transparency at work and they need legal advice and support when they believe they have been discriminated against. Our first priority with this money is to help low paid women and those who do not have access to advice.“I want to pay tribute to Carrie who is a fearless and principled champion for equal pay. Her generous donation means we can get the fund underway. We will also be seeking further contributions in the months ahead. We want to use the fund to both support individual women and to enable us to find strategic sex discrimination cases and make key legal interventions.”YouTube video: Former BBC China editor Carrie Gracie giving evidence to committee of MPs on pay inequality in January 2018. 127 total views, 1 views today Former BBC China Editor donates back pay to Fawcett Society The service is not yet in operation but is due to launch later this year.Carrie Gracie said:“When my case became news, women wrote to me from all over the country to recount horror stories about unequal pay and the difficulties they faced in trying to put it right. My own experience has taught me how lonely and challenging this can be. I am relieved my own battle is over. Now I want my back pay to help other women win equality at work, especially women who lack the personal funds, union support or public profile to get access to legal assistance. I’m delighted to work with Fawcett and YESS on this.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 128 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Brussels, Belgium — “Guilty, guilty, guilty!” These were the unanimous verdicts read by eight international jurors, including this writer, following a day and a half of testimony — much of it gut wrenching, horrifying and educational — at the International Peoples’ Tribunal on the Philippines held in Brussels, Belgium Sept. 18 and 19. The tribunal was held in the Maisons des Associations Internationales hall on both days.In total, 31 witnesses appeared in person and 19 more on video to substantiate indictments for economic, social and military crimes. The defendants were Philippines President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and his entire government; President Donald Trump and the entire U.S. government; and the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and transnational and foreign banks doing business in the Philippines.The complainants represented the interests of the more than 100 million Filipino people, and included the groups BAYAN, Kilusang Mayo Uno, Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas, GABRIELA, ANAKBAYAN, MIGRANTE, KADAMAY, KARAPATAN, HUSTISYA!, DESPARECIDOS, SELDA, SANDUGO, and Rise Up for Life and for Rights. These groups represent the vast majority of affected population sectors, including women, migrants, youth, farmers and workers.The indictment included three main charges:“Gross and systematic violations of human rights, particularly civil and political rights, with focus on extrajudicial killings, massacres, arbitrary arrests and detentions, torture, political persecution, attacks on media, and multiple rights violations arising from the imposition of martial rule in Mindanao.”“Gross and systematic violations of human rights, particularly economic, social and cultural rights, with focus on labor, peasant, women, and migrants rights, and the rights to education, livelihood and housing, through the imposition of neoliberal policies and other imperialist impositions to exploit the people; transgression of their economic sovereignty and national patrimony; and various forms of economic plunder.”“Gross and systematic violations of the rights of the people to national self-determination and development and violations of international humanitarian law, with focus on attacks on civilian communities and schools, massacres of hors d’combat (noncombatants), ‘terrorist’ labeling and profiling, destructive mining and environmental degradation, and crimes against humanity; and misrepresentations and attacks on the people’s right to national liberation.”None of the defendants responded to the indictments, and none sent any legal representation to the tribunal.The jurors, four women and four men based in Asia, Africa, Europe and the U.S., were Mamdouh Habashi, Azadeh Shahshahani, Sarojeni Rengam, Ties Prakken, Monica Moorehead, Gianni Tognoni, Michael Yoshii and Roland Weyl. The prosecutors representing the complainants were Neri Colmenares, Jan Fermon, Rey Cortez and Kathy Panguban.Azadeh Shahshahani & Joms Salvador inside the Philippine Embassy, Sept. 20.Giving victims, survivors a platformThe witnesses were provided an international platform to speak on the atrocities and inhumane treatment that they, their families or communities have faced ever since Duterte took office in 2016 with the promise of carrying out a “war on drugs.” This war has resulted in an official slaughter of more than 4,400 people, including teenage drug users. Other estimates state that upwards of 23,000 people have lost their lives from this war.Ruth Salditos testified about her spouse, one of the Antique 7 noncombatants massacred by the police on Aug. 15. Joms Salvador, a leader of the GABRIELA women’s organization, spoke about Duterte’s blatant misogyny, including his despicable jokes about rapes of women.Cecelia Veloso spoke about the frame-up charges against her daughter, Mary Jane, who was found guilty of possession of heroin in Indonesia. Ms. Veloso visited her daughter the day she was scheduled to be executed, before she received a last minute reprieve. Mary Jane was forced to leave the Philippines, like so many other migrants, to find a decent job.Sultan Atar spoke on human rights violations, especially those suffered by youth, under the current martial law in Marawi, an Indigenous area. George San Mateo spoke on the plunder of the Philippines’ rich resources by foreign mining corporations, especially those based in Europe and the U.S., and the environmental disaster they create.U.S. complicity The findings of the verdict state: “The Defendant U.S. government continues to give support to Defendant Philippine government in terms of intelligence, funding, orientation, training and arms to promote and pursue its economic and geopolitical interests in the region. Militarization is intense in the countryside because of the country’s rich natural resources, and any resistance is met by suppression.”The verdict continues: “Defendant Duterte and his government have committed various crimes against humanity and also war crimes that are committed on a daily basis against the Filipino people. The liability extends to Defendants Trump and the U.S. government, who exercise their domination over the Philippines for its strategic and economic interests.”The day after the tribunal, on Sept. 20, a delegation representing the witnesses, jurors, prosecution and supporters presented the verdict to a representative of the minority left opposition in the European Parliament. The verdict was also submitted to the International Criminal Court at The Hague in the Netherlands, and will be submitted to various United Nations human rights committees. When the delegation presented the same findings to the Philippine Embassy in Belgium, they were met by police as they were exiting. No arrests were made.Go the Facebook page of the International Peoples’ Tribunal, facebook.com/IPT2018, to view videos of the testimonies, photos and summaries.The writer represented the International Action Center at the tribunal.

But what most students do not know is that Courtney has a story of her own.In 2008 Gumbleton’s best friend, Dan, committed suicide.

Gumbleton is a TCU graduate, and Wolszon said “hiring Cortney was a no-brainer.”“She presented a well-researched vision of a comprehensive public health model for prevention, and she was energetic, passionate, engaging, and anyone could tell she would be dynamite for our efforts,” Wolszon said.One of Gumbleton’s main efforts in suicide prevention is teaching students QPR. The name is intentionally supposed to remind students of CPR to help students understand that making an effort to help prevent suicide can save a life.QPR stands for question-persuade-refer. These steps are what Wolszon calls “suicide gatekeeper training” and is how the Counseling and Mental Health Center believes students should handle a friend who may be considering suicide.The center understands that education is crucial to suicide prevention and has provided 100 trainings to students, faculty, staff and parents between 2013 and 2015. More than 90 outreach activities have also been held on the TCU campus.Click Here: A timeline of Gumbleton’s suicide prevention efforts“We need to keep up the efforts and never let up,” Wolszon said. “Our partnerships with departments all across the campus are critical to spreading the word, and Cortney is a master of building strong partnerships.”The Counseling and Mental Health Center plans to continue hosting events to help raise awareness about suicide prevention, but there is something that Gumbleton would like students to know: Students learn about suicide prevention with Fresh Check Day
The University has announced that it will be supporting a new government study to track coronavirus in the general population. “In this study we want to work out how many people of different ages across the UK have Covid-19 now and how many have had Covid-19 in the past. We do this by testing for the virus in the nose and throat of people and by measuring levels of antibody in the blood. The study is led by the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the Office for National Statistics (ONS), drawing on the scientific expertise of the University. It is also backed by the data science company IQVIA UK and the National Biosample Centre in Milton Keynes. Professor Sarah Walker of the University of Oxford Nuffield Department of Medicine will be the Chief Investigator for the study. Walker said: “This is one of the largest and most important studies underway into the COVID-19 virus and will transform our understanding of the infection. The University of Oxford is delighted to be the study sponsor. Participants will self-administer nose and throat swabs as well as answering a few questions from a health worker. These tests will reveal whether or not they have been infected with the virus. Some will also provide blood samples which can be examined to determine what proportion of the population have developed antibodies to COVID-19. Initial findings are expected to be available in early May. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “Understanding more about the rate of COVID-19 infection in the general population, and the longer-term prevalence of antibodies, is a vital part of our ongoing response to this virus. The study aims to improve understanding about the current rate of infection and how many people are likely to have developed immunity. Twenty thousand households in England will be contacted to take part in the first wave of the major study, with hopes it will reach up to 300,000 people in the next year. Participants will form a representative sample of the entire UK population by age and geography. “This survey will help to track the current extent of transmission and infection in the UK, while also answering crucial questions about immunity as we continue to build up our understanding of this new virus. “We also want to find out how many people have Covid-19 over time – either with symptoms or without knowing they have the infection because they don’t have any symptoms. We want to do this in a group of people that reflects the population of the UK, so a range of ages and places where people live.” “Together, these results will help us better understand the spread of the virus to date, predict the future trajectory and inform future action we take, including crucially the development of ground-breaking new tests and treatments.” Image Credit to Felipe Esquivel Reed/ Wikimedia Commons
By TIM KELLYWorking at a Boardwalk toy store paid off for Ocean City High School senior J.J. Warrington.Warrington combined his skills with a yo-yo and hip-hop dancing to wow the panel of judges to win the title of Mr. OCHS 2020 Friday night at the Bill and Nancy Hughes Performing Arts Center.“I entered the contest just for fun, never expecting to win,” Warrington said. “It feels kind of surreal right now.”Performing in front of a packed auditorium, he bested the field of 12 candidates in the zany and raucous parody of a traditional beauty pageant.Warrington, who was born in the Philippines, also scored big during the interview segment when Master of Ceremonies John Bruno asked what it would mean to win the crown and title.“My Uncle (Rene Sese) won the Mr. Mature America contest (in Ocean City in 2016),” he said. “It would be nice to be the second one in my family to win the crown.”Second runner-up Billy Flynn does an Elvis impersonation by performing “You Ain’t Nothing But a Hound Dog.”Todd Reimet, took the People’s Choice award, earning the most audience votes, while Mac Young took the first runner-up honors and Billy Flynn was second runner-up.The panel of judges had a difficult task, as all 12 candidates would have represented the title well.The other entrants were Henry Souto, Lucas Mozes, Jim Swift, Jacob Hoffman, Micah Waid, Colin Quade, Julian Lechner and Issac Wilson.“I congratulate all the boys for working so hard and pulling for each other,” Bruno said. “It’s not easy to get up here on stage.”The fast-paced evening began with a parade of the contestants as introduced by student emcees Ava Cozamanis and Jillian Falvo.All of the contestants took part in an opening and closing dance number, decked out in tuxedos donated by At Your Service Formalwear. In between there were fitness and casual wear competitions.J.J. Warrington shows off his yo-yo skills during the talent competition.The “Free Expression/Talent” segment ran the gamut from Souto’s piano solo to a comical karaoke performance by Waid, and a song-and-dance routine by Flynn in tribute to Elvis Presley.But in the end it was Warrington’s winning personality and amazing work with the yo-yo that produced the loudest cheers.“I’ve been yo-yoing for about four years,” he said. “I started when I worked at the toy store and I kept at it.He became proficient at such classic yo-yo tricks as “rocking the cradle” and “around the world,” all made even more amazing when combined with some slick dance moves.“And here’s a fun fact: the yo-yo originated in the Philippines,” said Warrington, who donned traditional garb of his native land in the casual wear competition.Although the show played for laughs, Warrington was serious when he spoke of his post-high school plans.“I’m going into the U.S. Marine Corps,” he said, “so that I can serve my adopted home country.”J.J. Warrington is all smiles as he is named Mr. OCHS 2020. J.J. Warrington, sixth from right with other contestants, takes the title of Mr. OCHS.
LONDON (AP) — Everyone arriving in the U.K. from countries identified as coronavirus hotspots will have to spend 10 days in hotel quarantine starting Feb. 15 in a bid to stop new virus variants reaching the country. Under the plan, British citizens and residents returning from high-risk countries will have to quarantine in approved hotels near airports and sea ports and will be billed for their stay. The U.K. says it has sought advice from Australia and New Zealand, where quarantine hotels have been used to contain COVID-19. But authorities are facing criticism for delays in implementing the policy, which was first announced in late January.
