National Alliance of Women Farmworkers at the ‘Me Too Survivors March’ in Hollywood, Nov. 12.Organizers of Alianza Nacional de Campesinas spoke movingly to a crowd of thousands of participants at the #Me Too Survivors March on Nov. 12 in Los Angeles. At the rally, they read a letter of solidarity from 700,000 women farm workers to the courageous women who have spoken out publicly about their experiences of sexual harassment and abuse in Hollywood. The national alliance is comprised of current and former women agricultural workers and their relatives.Their statement reads, in part, “We write on behalf of the 700,000 women who work in the agricultural and packing sheds across the United States. [W]e have watched and listened with sadness as we have learned of the actors, models and other individuals who have come forward to speak about the gender-based violence they have experienced at the hands of bosses, co-workers and other powerful people in the entertainment industry. Sadly, we are not surprised because it’s a reality we know far too well. Countless farm worker women across our country suffer in silence because of the widespread sexual harassment and assault that they face at work.”It continues, “We do not work under bright stage lights or on the big screen. We work in the shadow of society in isolated fields and packing houses that are out of sight and out of mind. Our job nourishes the nation with crops that we plant, pick and pack. Even though we work in different environments, we share a common experience of being preyed upon by individuals who have the power to hire, fire, blacklist and threaten our economic, physical and emotional security.”Standing up publicly to denounce sexual assaults in agribusiness shows great courage, as the farm workers reveal: “Complaining about anything, even sexual harassment, is unthinkable because too much is at risk, including the ability to feed our families.”In conclusion, the women stress, “We understand the hurt, confusion, isolation and betrayal that you might feel,” and the shame and fear. “We know that it is not our fault. The only people at fault are the individuals who abuse their power to harass, threaten and harm us, as they have harmed you. … As you cope with scrutiny and criticism because you bravely chose to speak out against the harrowing acts that were committed against you, please know that you are not alone. We believe and stand with you.”Hundreds of thousands of women, mostly Latinx immigrants, many undocumented, work in U.S. agricultural fields. Sexual violence is so rampant that a woman farm worker in Iowa remarked, “We thought it was normal in the United States that in order to keep your job, you had to have sex.” (New York Times, Jan. 19, 2016)Government regulations prohibit legal aid groups from representing undocumented people. Moreover, Washington’s war on the undocumented creates a climate of fear of detention or deportation for women immigrants who report incidents of abuse.This urgent situation must be taken up by unions and by women’s and other progressive organizations.This open letter was originally published in Time magazine on Nov. 10.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
BelarusEurope – Central Asia “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Help by sharing this information RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today hailed the announced reopening of the investigation into the October 2003 murder of journalist Alexei Sidorov but voiced concern that the local prosecutor’s office is still in charge of the case and reiterated its call for it to be transferred to the Russian Federation prosecutor-general.The reopening of the case was announced by Samara regional deputy prosecutor Evgeni Novojilov who, according to a report in the daily Izvestia on 14 February, said two new leads would be followed up that were unrelated to those previously pursued. He said one involved a well-known regional crime organization but he have no further details.While welcoming the reopening of the case as “positive” as far as it went, Reporters Without Borders said it again called on Russian Federation prosecutor-general Vladimir Ustinov “to personally take over the investigation in order to guarantee its transparency and objectivity.”The editor of the regional daily newspaper Toliattinskoye Obosrenie, Sidorov was stabbed by two men in the parking lot of his apartment building in the city of Togliatti on 9 October 2003 and died moments later in the arms of his wife. Aged 31, he had taken over as editor from Valery Ivanov, who had been murdered in similar circumstances on 29 April 2002.Before being named editor, Sidorov worked as an investigative journalist for the newspaper, and a few weeks before his death he had gone back to investigating organized crime.On 11 October 2004, local welder Evgeni Maininger was acquitted by a Togliatti court of Sidorov’s murder on the grounds of lack of proof. He had been accused of killing him in a street brawl. According to the official version, Maininger met Sidorov in the street by chance and asked for a loan to buy vodka. A fight broke out when Sidorov refused and Maininger allegedly stabbed him several times before fleeing and throwing away the murder weapon in a forest.After a fact-finding visit to Togliatti in October 2003, Reporters Without Borders expressed reserves about the quality of the investigation being conducted by the local prosecutor’s office. It was in October 2004 that Reporters Without Borders first asked Prosecutor-General Ustinov to take over the investigation on the grounds that the local prosecutor’s office was unsuited.

Home / Daily Dose / The Week Ahead: CFPB Updates Congress On Tuesday, March 10, the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs will hold a hearing to examine the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) semi-annual report to Congress. The U.S. Supreme Court heard opening arguments Tuesday in Seila Law v. the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau—a case that could decide the constitutionality of the Bureau.The CFPB was designed to rein in abusive practices in consumer credit marks, such as home mortgages and credit cards. CNBC states it returned $12 billion to consumers between 2011 and 2017 but stopped pursuing enforcement actions under President Donald Trump.The CFPB has been the subject of several lawsuits, most recently by the California-based Seila Law. Seila Law alleges the CFPB’s insulation from presidential control is unconstitutional. The law firm challenged the agency after the CFPB targeted the firm 2017, CNBC states.Kannon K. Shanmugan, attorney for Siela Law, who argues the CFPB was constructed against the U.S. constitution, had a clear message for the Supreme Court.“The structure of the CFPB is unprecedented and unconstitutional,” Shanmugan said. “Never before in American history has Congress given so much executive power to a single individual who does not answer to the President.”He added that by limiting the President’s ability to remove the CFPB’s director, Congress violated the “core presidential prerogatives” to exercise the executive power that laws are faithfully executed.Shanmugan continued his opening remarks by saying the Solicitor General contends that the Supreme Court should rewrite the Dodd-Frank Act, giving the president the power to remove the CFPB’s director.“But the constitutional question, in this case, arises in the context of a defense to an enforcement proceeding and not a facial challenge,” he said.Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead:Financial accounts of the U.S. (March 12) in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Subscribe The Week Ahead: CFPB Updates Congress Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Print This Post Previous: Seven Major Mortgage Servicing Tech Trends Next: CFPB Proposes Whistleblower Award Program Share Save March 8, 2020 1,090 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago 2020-03-08 Seth Welborn Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

1.1. Features of life history strategies of Antarctic terrestrial invertebrates are reviewed and compared with the predictions of two widely-used general life history models.2.2. Many features observed are consistent with the predictions of “adversity-” or “stress-selected” life histories, although “ruderal” characteristics are also observed.3.3. Many features are plesiotypic for the taxonomic groups concerned, suggesting a lack of evolved adaptations within the Antarctic biota.4.4. A large degree of flexibility is found in the life histories; this flexibility itself may allow passage of environmentally-imposed selective filters limiting colonisation and development in isolated and extreme terrestrial habitats.5.5. In general, Antarctic terrestrial invertebrates may be regarded as pre-adapted for survival of the various stresses imposed by their extreme environment.
