Members of the Tri-State Iranian Community, International Action Center, People’s Power Assembly, Workers World Party and even passersby joined together to demand an end to harassment of anti-racist, anti-imperialist journalists. They also demanded an immediate end to the Material Witness Law, an unconstitutional measure used to hold people, especially Muslims like Hashemi, indefinitely without charges.  Her release was a victory for the people’s movement worldwide.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

Riverfest money is flowing out of city

first_imgShannon Airport braced for a devastating blow The skies of Limerick will transformed into an explosion of colours during the Riverfest fireworks extravaganza on the Shannon.Riverfest 2018 drew over an estimated 100,000 people to the banks of the Shannon for the biggest celebration yet with this yearÕs line-up bursting with big-name acts and unmissable events.The festival is a carnival of activity and variety, with thrilling new attractions including the first ever visit to Ireland by the Seabreacher Shark Ð a dare-devil aquatic spectacle in an 18ft Ôshark-craftÕ that can travel at speeds of up to 80km per hour.Picture Sean Curtin True Media.THERE has been a mixed reaction to proposals that more money be pumped into Limerick’s festivals, with a city councillor calling for a probe into what profits are being made by the company that runs Riverfest.Members of the Metropolitan District of Limerick City and County Council raised issues during a presentation by Council Arts Officer Sheila Deegan on the Riverfest, International Bands and St Patrick’s Day festivals.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The council contributed €30,000 to the International Bands and St Patrick’s festivals, and a further €30,000 to Riverfest.The overall cost of Riverfest was €285,241 while the Bands and St Patrick’s festival events came in at €174,615.For the €30,000 invested in the St Patrick’s festival, the city saw 60,000 visitors for the two parades which represented a cost of 50c per attendee to the local authority. The festival featured 100 local and international groups, 4,000 participants on the streets and employed 21 local artists and resulted in 959 bed nights.Riverfest had attendances of 100,000 attended which worked out at 30c per attendee for the council’s contribution and generated €561,000 for the local economy.   Ms Deegan said the 2019 St Patrick’s festival will be on the theme of ‘One Giant Leap’ to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first landing on the moon and the leaps forward made by Limerick.Plans for the next Riversfest include opera in the Sailor’s Home, plans to develop the food stalls and extend them into the Potato Market.Limerick has also been designated a gateway by Failte Ireland in Wild Atlantic Region and the council will be ensuring festivals are part of gateway activity.Ms Deegan said she was asking members to authorise the same amount of contributions from their funds again this year.However, Cmhlr Seighin O’Ceaillaigh (SF) said he thought that the private companies who benefit from the festivals would be contributing.“The Limerick Soviet Committee is scrambling for money to try to commemorate one of the most significant events to happen on this island. I would have thought that should be the theme – not some disputed moon landing”. City west councillor, Eleanor Hogan (FG) said “I agree we should spread our investment and we should be thinking more broadly about commercial involvement”. Cllr Michael Sheehan (FG) said that in 2016 just six local companies participated in Riverfest.“In 99 per cent of cases, the money spent leaves Limerick. This year four Limerick companies we allowed to trade behind the Hunt Museum. They might as well have been in Knocknagoshel. No one knew they were there and they made no money.“A pitch in 2016 cost €550, it now costs €3,000. We have forgotten about our local traders in a quest to let the company get rich quick. The people who have the contract are making the money and I’m not happy with that.“There needs to be an enquiry into the operation of the company running Riverfest,” he declared.

first_img Tags Message* Paul Manafort and 174 Jobs Lane (Getty, Google Maps, iStock/Illustration by Alexis Manrodt for The Real Deal)The Federal Savings Bank of Chicago has sued Paul Manafort and his wife, Kathleen, and is seeking to foreclose on the former Trump campaign chairman’s Hamptons mansion.The bank claims that Manafort has defaulted on a $9.5 million loan for the Water Mill, New York, home. The couple started mortgage payments on Jan. 1, 2016, but have made no payments on the 174 Jobs Lane home loan since Nov. 1, 2017, and owe more than $9.27 million as of March 2, Bloomberg News reported.Read moreCourt ends DA’s push to prosecute Manafort for mortgage fraudDA moving forward with Manafort case after Trump pardonJudge tosses mortgage-fraud case against Manafort Full Name* Email Address* The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in federal court in Brooklyn.ADVERTISEMENTIn 2019 federal prosecutors charged founder of the Federal Savings Bank Stephen Calk with bribery, claiming that he pushed through $16 million in “high-risk” loans despite red flags, while seeking a position in the Trump administration. Though Manafort wasn’t named in court papers in the case, the description of the official who received the loans matches him, according to Bloomberg.The Hamptons loan was rejected by the bank in October 2016, but after Trump was elected president the following month, Calk prompted the bank to go back and approve it.Manafort was charged in 2017, convicted in 2018 and sentenced to seven and a half years in prison in 2019.

This follows the 20 per cent growth in turnover seen by the company in the last year.John Moran, Managing Director at Grant Property, said, “We’ve seen a lot of interest from overseas buyers wanting to invest in Edinburgh’s residential property market. To help us grow in this area, we needed the right infrastructure in place. HSBC completely understood our strategy and have enabled us to streamline our business and invest in more staff.”Grant Property switched its full banking requirements to HSBC where the finance was allocated from the bank’s national £10 billion SME fund to actively support UK SMEs. £450 million is specifically designated to support Scottish firms and rebalance the economy outside of London.Donald Rankine, Relationship Manger at HSBC, said, “Grant Property demonstrated a clear strategy for growth by making the business leaner and capitalising on a buoyant market.

Attorney General Hill Hosts Press Conference, Reinforces Support For U.S. Supreme Court Nominee Neil…

first_img FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare IINDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill today hosted a press conference supporting U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. Hill has been steadfast in his support for Gorsuch, reiterating his sentiments that Gorsuch is the best person for the nomination and the right person to help safeguard Americans’ liberties.“Too many judges these days are guided by their own ideological and political viewpoints rather than established law,” Hill said at his press conference. “Judge Gorsuch is a different kind of judge altogether.”Hill was joined by Indiana Chamber Vice President of Federal Affairs Caryl Auslander.Earlier this month, Hill authored an op-ed in which he praised Gorsuch as a judge devoted to the U.S. Constitution who interprets the law rather than seeking to legislate from the bench. Hill also joined 19 attorneys general from Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming, signing a letter in support of Gorsuch’s nomination.“Judge Gorsuch throughout his career has proved himself committed to interpreting the law as it is written,” Hill said, “rather than seeking to legislate from the bench.”last_img read more
