Colombia: S.O.S SINTRAEMCALI (Public Utility Union): 60 WORKERS SACKED

15-07-2004 13:38

60 workers including SINTRAEMCALI President Luis Hernandez and 5 other members of the union’s leadership sacked – 14 July 2004
SINTRAEMCALI are famous for successfully resisting privatisation in 2001 under the previous national government, when they occupied the HQ of their employers - EMCALI - the Public utility service provider in Cali. The occupation lasted over 30 days, after which the former Colombian president reached a negotiated settlement with the workers, assuring them that the state-run service would not only not be privatised, but that SINTRAEMCALI's workers would gain management control of the service. The new President - Uribe - disassociated himself with this agreement.
SINTRAEMCALI hold workers' assemblies to achieve popular mandates. Their stated priority is to achieve an efficient service, at the service of the poor. In the time they were in effective control of Cali during a brief period in 2001, they managed to sack corrupt managers - replaced by teams of specialist workers.

ICJ Ruling Against Israel

15-07-2004 09:11

It’s a neat concept. An international court developed to adjudicate disputes between contending nations. Those who dreamed of a world government, where a single legislature would execute one body of laws to which all nations would be bound, must have been elated. With the establishment of the International Court of Justice , the idea that nations could settle their differences before a panel of eminent impartial jurists without resort to force, finally seemed to have come of age.

Livingstone wrong on Qaradawi - again

15-07-2004 06:55

“Ken Livingstone has done great work for the gay community, but by rolling out the red carpet for Dr al-Qaradawi he is siding with an oppressor of gay Muslims in Britain and throughout the Islamic world. In the name of fighting Islamophobia, the Mayor is colluding with homophobia. He seems to be downgrading the human rights of lesbians and gay men in order to appease Muslim fundamentalists.”
