Congelación de Texas: los ricos, más ricos mientras obreros sufren

first_imgHoustonUna tormenta invernal sin precedentes azotó a Texas el 15 de febrero y trajo temperaturas bajo cero. Una semana después, grandes sectores de la población siguen sin electricidad, calefacción y/o agua.El horizonte de Houston brilla, mientras millones sufren sin calefacción ni agua en medio de cortes de energía prevenibles. 15 de febrero.En las principales ciudades, como Houston, Austin y San Antonio, los rascacielos corporativos vacíos permanecieron iluminados, mientras que millones estaban en la oscuridad sin electricidad ni agua.Fue necesaria la protesta pública para hacer que los funcionarios apagaran los edificios que no estaban en uso y desviaran energía a hospitales y bomberos.Las personas en Texas no solo están luchando por recuperarse de esta congelación, sino también de huracanes e inundaciones anteriores causadas por el calentamiento global que produce precipitaciones extremas a todas las temperaturas. Esto se ve agravado por la crisis de COVID en uno de los mayores sistemas interconectados de prisiones, cárceles y centros de detención; Texas ocupa el segundo lugar después de California.Muchas personas se han congelado hasta morir, y es probable que las muertes no se cuenten exactamente ya que se encontrarán más cuerpos después del deshielo. El Texas Tribune informó el 18 de febrero que casi la mitad del estado estaba experimentando interrupciones en el agua. Y a esto se le agrega avisos de hervir el agua, cuando muchas familias no pudieron acceder a la calefacción, y comprenderás lo difícil que ha sido sobrevivir.Después de meses de alto desempleo, desalojos récord y 500.000 muertes por virus, tenemos un sector energético desregulado que obtiene beneficios récord de nuestra miseria. El multimillonario propietario de los Dallas Cowboys y destacado benefactor de la policía, Jerry Jones vio a su compañía de gas natural, Comstock Resources, Inc., obtener ganancias récord. El director financiero de Comstock, Roland Burns, dijo: “Esta semana es como ganar el premio gordo con algunos de estos precios increíbles. Francamente, pudimos vender a precios súper premium por una cantidad importante de producción”. (Dallas Morning News, 17 de febrero)  Mientras tanto, algunos tejanos están reportando facturas de electricidad mensuales de hasta $17.000. (NY Post, 19 de febrero) Mientras la gente sufría, el senador de Texas Ted Cruz huyó a Cancún, México, para brindarle a su familia mejores condiciones de vida. Esto, dadas sus fuertes posiciones anti-inmigrantes y acciones legislativas, es irónico por decir lo menos. También es irónico que la demócrata Nancy Pelosi dijera en septiembre sobre el partido de Cruz: “El país necesita un Partido Republicano fuerte. Ha hecho mucho por nuestro país”. (MSNBC, 30 de septiembre de 2020)Por qué falló la red eléctrica de TexasEn un estado que durante mucho tiempo ha sido rehén del petróleo y el gas, las redes eléctricas fallaron debido a la falta de regulación. Las inclinaciones secesionistas de Texas tienen al menos una salida moderna: la red eléctrica. Hay tres redes en los 48 estados inferiores: la Interconexión Oriental, la Interconexión Occidental y Texas. La red de Texas se llama ERCOT y es administrada por una agencia del mismo nombre: el Consejo de Confiabilidad Eléctrica de Texas.Según informó el Texas Tribune, el 8 de febrero de 2011: “En 1935, el presidente Franklin D. Roosevelt firmó la Ley Federal de Energía, que encargaba a la Comisión Federal de Energía la supervisión de las ventas de electricidad entre estados. Al no cruzar las fronteras estatales, los servicios públicos de Texas evitaron estar sujetos a las reglas federales. La libertad de la regulación federal era un objetivo preciado, más aún porque Texas no tuvo regulación hasta la década de 1970”.El gobernador de Texas, Gregg Abbott, difundió afirmaciones falsas en Fox News de que las fuentes de energía renovable como el viento eran las culpables; más tarde tuvo que cambiar esas afirmaciones falsas. (Yahoo News, 17 de febrero)  Las mentiras de Abbott aún viven en la mente de millones, a pesar de la evidencia de que fueron las fuentes de energía no renovables y la desregulación las culpables del apagón.El director general de ERCOT, Dan Woodfin, citó “instrumentos congelados en instalaciones de gas natural, carbón e incluso nucleares, así como suministros limitados de gas natural. La presión del gas natural en particular es una de las razones por las que la energía está regresando más lento de lo esperado “. (Bloomberg, 15 de febrero) Chris Tomlinson informó para el Houston Chronicle el 18 de febrero: “Los generadores de electricidad de Texas no querían perder el tiempo para construir equipos resistentes porque recortan sus ganancias”. Las crisis agravantes del capital en Texas ilustran que organizar las economías en torno a las ganancias para unos pocos, en lugar de lo que es necesario para sustentar la vida humana, se produce a costa violenta de los pueblos oprimidos.Clima, sanciones y colonización Los estantes de comestibles vacíos durante la congelación se compararon con la situación en Venezuela. No se menciona que hasta 40.000 venezolanos han muerto porque es uno de los 39 países sancionados por Estados Unidos, lo que hace que sea casi imposible para muchos acceder a alimentos y medicinas. (SanctionsKill.org) Las mismas entidades que matan de hambre a personas en el extranjero están dispuestas a dejarnos morir de hambre en casa.Los factores combinados de opresión nacional y crisis climática produjeron los catastróficos desastres de los huracanes María en Puerto Rico y Katrina en Luisiana.El académico Daniel Immerwahr explica: “[A fines de 2017] el huracán María azotó a Puerto Rico, destruyendo la red eléctrica, el sistema de agua y las comunicaciones de la isla. También expuso el lamentable estado de cosas en la colonia restante más grande de los Estados Unidos. Aunque la estrategia de Luis Muñoz Marín de utilizar las lagunas fiscales para atraer a las corporaciones continentales a la isla había mejorado drásticamente la economía de Puerto Rico en la década de 1950 y durante décadas después, el Congreso eliminó esas lagunas en la década de 1990, lo que provocó la fuga corporativa, el colapso económico y un éxodo de Puertorriqueños empleable hacia al continente.Cuando María golpeó, más del 60% de los habitantes restantes de la isla tenían Medicare o Medicaid. Debido a que el gobierno federal financia esos programas de manera menos generosa en Puerto Rico que en el continente, el ELA se encontró acumulando una deuda insostenible para pagar sus facturas. “El huracán convirtió la crisis en catástrofe. Los puertorriqueños se vieron obligados a retroceder un siglo porque se las arreglaron sin teléfonos ni electricidad. Los médicos se vieron obligados a realizar cirugías con linternas, los habitantes de la ciudad buscaban desesperadamente agua limpia. “El huracán María golpeó casi al mismo tiempo que otras dos tormentas azotaron el continente, el huracán Harvey en Texas y el huracán Irma (que azotó por primera vez las Islas Vírgenes de EE. UU.) en la Florida. La diferencia en la respuesta fue palpable. Aunque los puertorriqueños tenían muchas más probabilidades de morir por los daños causados por la tormenta, vieron menos personal federal, notablemente menos cobertura de los medios y solo una fracción de las donaciones caritativas”. (Immerwahr, “Cómo ocultar un imperio”, Macmillan, 2019)El huracán Katrina mostró que el estado capitalista desprecia a las personas de nacionalidades oprimidas, especialmente a las personas de raza negra y morena. Muchos evacuados de Katrina terminaron en el Astrodome de Houston, enfrentando enfermedades infecciosas por estar muy apiñados. Vimos que el abandono organizado iba de la mano con la violencia organizada de la policía y los supremacistas blancos, mientras que los medios de comunicación lo justificaron al denunciar en exceso el “saqueo”. Las personas encarceladas no fueron evacuadas; se vieron obligados a lidiar con células inundadas y materia fecal flotante sin alivio. Existe una práctica recurrente en todo el sur de EE.UU. de dejar a las personas en prisión durante los desastres. Las prisiones de Texas alrededor del río Brazos se inundan con frecuencia; los de adentro deben lidiar con las condiciones. El capitalismo crea catástrofes antinaturales Las redes de ayuda mutua en Texas estaban en movimiento mucho antes de que esta crisis congelara el estado. Estas redes pueden redistribuir fondos y suministros más rápido que los gobiernos locales y estatales, aunque muchos grupos están operando a su capacidad o por encima de ella. Mantienen a la gente viva, mientras que el estado capitalista ha dejado que la gente muera. Todo lo que le falta al gobierno es la voluntad de actuar rápidamente, porque su función real es la de obtener ganancias.En Cuba, donde la clase trabajadora se apoderó con éxito de los medios de producción en 1959, la respuesta a eventos climáticos como los huracanes está marcada por la preparación y la prevención del sufrimiento.Según Gail Reed, editora ejecutiva de MEDICC Review, una revista sobre salud y medicina en América Latina, el Caribe y otros países en desarrollo, y periodista que ha pasado más de tres décadas en Cuba, el gobierno cubano brinda a las comunidades locales siete días para prepararse para lo peor a medida que se acerca un huracán. Los cubanos practican ejercicios de preparación a menudo, en cada provincia, ciudad, pueblo y aldea. “Estos simulacros constantes se combinan con una respuesta integrada de los departamentos de bomberos locales, salud, transporte y otros servicios públicos vitales. Sobre todo, Cuba pone un gran énfasis en educar a la población para mantener seguras a las comunidades y familias, especialmente a las más vulnerables”. (Telesur, 28 de agosto de 2017) Cuba, a pesar de estar bajo el bloqueo económico de Estados Unidos durante décadas, se ofreció a enviar a 1.500 profesionales médicos para ayudar a la gente de Nueva Orleans tras el paso del huracán Katrina. El ex presidente George W. Bush rápidamente rechazó la oferta, dejando que la gente sufriera.Continuaremos viendo el abandono organizado de trabajadores y pueblos oprimidos en futuras crisis. Dado que el año pasado produjo la mayor cantidad de tormentas tropicales registradas en una sola temporada, en la Costa del Golfo sabemos que no se trata de si, sino de cuándo ocurre el próximo desastre climático catastrófico.Tanto el partido demócrata como el republicano en Estados Unidos son servidores del capital. Una y otra vez han demostrado que nos dejarán a nosotros y al Sur Global por muertos, para que los capitalistas puedan perseguir otro dólar. Por eso estamos llamados a enfrentar su violencia organizada de arriba hacia abajo con una organización de abajo hacia arriba que prioriza a las personas sobre las ganancias.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Two brothers stage stabbing hoax so they could post prank on social media: Police

first_imgalexsl/iStockBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Two brothers have been arrested after creating an elaborate hoax over a fake stabbing so that the prank could be shared on social media, according to authorities.The incident occurred on Jan. 24 at approximately 5:46 p.m. when the Montgomery County Emergency Communications Center received a call reporting a stabbing at a residential home in Silver Spring, Maryland.“The caller stated that two brothers had been fighting in the house and it appeared that one of them had stabbed the other in the neck with a knife,” the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) in a press release published on Feb. 10 detailing the ordeal.Responding authorities entered the home and observed a 21-year-old male, later identified as Denidson Jean, lying on the floor holding a t-shirt to his neck to stop the apparent heavy bleeding and covered in what appeared to be a large amount of blood.The responding officer observed a 19-year-old male, later identified as Pierre Jean, standing over the victim along with a kitchen knife covered with blood on the counter next to the kitchen sink. The officer asked who stabbed Denidson and Pierre replied by saying “I didn’t mean to,” according to MCPD.“Four other residents were in the home and were in emotional distress with what had occurred. The residents were yelling and crying which contributed to the chaotic scene,” MCPD said in their statement released to the media.The officer immediately began to administer first aid and informed dispatch that he would need an advanced life support response and that fire and rescue personnel were needed to help the victim.Authorities say that the officer had been in the home and rendering aid for approximately two minutes when Denidson sat up, started laughing and told the officer that this had all been a prank for social media.“The investigation by the Department has determined that the two brothers planned this hoax to be recorded and posted to social media,” said the MCPD. “Prop blood was located in the home, as well as a digital camera which had been placed in the kitchen light. Pierre and Denidson created the bloody scene, pretended to be involved in a physical altercation with each other, and then Pierre, with blood on his clothing and holding the knife, left the kitchen. He returned to the kitchen with residents of the home and directed the residents to call 911/ the police a total of five times.”There is no indication that the other residents knew the situation was fake or that they were in on the hoax.Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones released a statement expressing his anger at the situation.“The suspects’ decision to orchestrate this hoax for social media and set it into motion with directing a call to 9-1-1 demonstrated a total disregard for the numerous Montgomery County police officers and Fire & Rescue personnel who were dispatched to the residence,” said Jones. “These officers and medical personnel responded in an emergency status (activating vehicle overhead lights and siren) to render aid to the alleged stabbing victim, causing unnecessary risk to the emergency responders and the community. The suspects created a dangerous and chaotic scene for the officers and other residents in the home, and we are fortunate that no one was hurt or injured during this situation.”“These suspects also showed a total disregard for Montgomery County residents, who may have needed those emergency services that were unnecessarily devoted and possibly diverted from other calls for service to this hoax,” Jones continued. “Even after the suspects confessed that this was a prank, officers were needed at the scene to interview witnesses and document the incident. The follow-up investigation included conducting a search of the home to recover evidence. I am proud of my officers, who responded to the stabbing call with great concern, and who began to immediately care for the alleged victim and investigate when arriving at the scene. They exhibited tremendous professionalism throughout the entire incident.”Denidson Jean and Pierre Jean were subsequently arrested on Feb. 8 in Silver Spring, Maryland, and transported to the Central Processing Unit before being released from custody.They have both been charged with knowingly causing a false call for an ambulance and making a false statement to an officer with the intent to deceive and cause an investigation.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Redundancy fears continue

first_imgRedundancy fears continueOn 20 Jun 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article People in work still feel insecure, even though large areas of the country have near full employment, a report by the Economic and Social Research Council has found.Just over 10 per cent of the 1,000 people who took part in one of the surveys featured in the report felt they might lose their job in the course of the next year.The people most acutely aware of the implications of losing their job were single earners, and low-income, dual-earner households with children, researchers found.Two in three of those who had been made unemployed had failed to foresee the event, said the report, which is the culmination of three years of study into how families manage risk.The persistence of job insecurity reflects rapidly changing markets and skill needs, said Russell Martin, global HR director at financial services firm Primark.“I still detect strong nervousness in the employee population,” he said. “In merger situations it is still quite surprising the nervousness that generates around the people concerned. “They are concerned for their future and finding alternative work, notwithstanding the very strong job market.“People are still fearful of redundancy and the stigma attached to it.”The tables have not been completely turned with the tightening of the labour market, he added, even for sought-after technical staff. “To recruit IT staff is difficult but it is not impossible. We continue to recruit and we certainly have not experienced any haemorrhaging of staff.”People may continue to stay for many years with a single employer, but they will be expected to learn new skills continually as technology and markets change more rapidly.Another of the Economic and Social Research Council’s findings cast doubt on the viability of private unemployment insurance. “Those who endorsed private provision in principle often did not put it into practice, often because they could not afford to,” the report concluded. Mortgage protection, however, is popular.Contacts ESRC 01793 413122; [email protected] 0115-951 4546last_img read more
