The bank acquired its holding in the world’s largest asset manager last year through its acquisition of Merrill Lynch and has always regarded it as an investment, rather than a core asset.INVESTORS SCORE AS SKS BETS ON THE POORSKS Microfinance gained as much as 18 per cent in its trading debut in Mumbai today as investors bet that tiny loans extended to some of the world’s poorest people can deliver huge profits.

Nov. 17 in Philly: Fight fascist violence!

first_imgA motley group of far-right organizations, including the Proud Boys, plan to rally near Independence Hall in Philadelphia on Nov. 17 under the hypocritical constitutional slogan “We the People.”The PushBack Campaign and Philly Antifa will organize counterprotests, supported by Workers World Party, to confront the fascists. Nov. 17 in Philadelphia offers a moment for those who oppose fascist violence to organize, mobilize and build a united movement against white supremacy, patriarchal violence and fascism.The far-right organizers of the “We the People” event pretend to distance themselves from outright white supremacist fascists like the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis. Nevertheless, the political program of the event is utterly anti-immigrant, pro-police and for “Patriots, Militia and three percenters.” That makes it very much an event for fascists.The history of the Philadelphia police — of being perhaps the largest, most organized group of white supremacists in the entire city — shows it is likely they will be protecting the fascist demonstrators against the people. Philadelphia is known for its fascist Democrat mayor/police chief icon Frank Rizzo. (tinyurl.com/WWrizzo) Police forces in general protect the rights of these demonstrators, while offering no guarantees of safety for anti-fascists who will mobilize en masse to defend themselves. (tinyurl.com/ybkyjklv)Three attacks during the last week of October showed the threat of fascist violence: the racist shooting at a Kroger grocery store in Kentucky, pipe bombs mailed to politicians and business magnates who oppose President Donald Trump, and the massacre in a Pittsburgh synagogue. These three cases reflect the growing threat of a developing fascist movement.Fascist violence: U.S. traditionIn the U.S., Trump, who recently declared himself a “nationalist” — he means “white nationalist” — is acting as the chief agitator and recruiter for fascism, helping to bring thousands of disgruntled people into a new white supremacist, anti-women, anti-LGBTQ movement.As capitalism continues its decay, bringing uncertainty to the daily lives of the masses of people, it creates a climate where white supremacist, fascist gang violence is on the rise. All across Europe, neo-fascist parties are growing in strength and violence, usually directed against immigrants as the main scapegoat.On Oct. 12, the Proud Boys, stirred to violence by their disgusting leader Gavin McInnes, attacked four anti-racist activists after McInnes spoke at the New York City Republican Club. The Proud Boys are a group of Trumpist, white supremacist men who advocate masculinist street fighting against anyone who is perceived to be against them.This brand of white supremacist fascism, with its ties to and support by many in the Republican party, is one of many such groups, with a growing number of young members committed to bringing forth an all-white ethnostate by force.Fascist organizations like the Proud Boys, Identity Evropa, Vanguard America and the KKK are responsible for the murder of Heather Heyer at the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017.White supremacist cops kill more than 1,000 people each year. Border Patrol agents, whose “union” leaders openly sympathize with the Proud Boys, regularly kill, rape, imprison and torture migrants from across the world as they enter the U.S. These are fascist acts.Historically, right-wing, white supremacist men have been the most violent terrorists in the history of the U.S. People may remember Timothy McVeigh, who killed 168 people in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing; Eric Rudolph, who killed and injured people in Atlanta with bombs at the 1996 Olympics; and Dylann Roof, who killed nine people in a Black church in 2015 in Charleston, S.C. Along with these publicized cases is the legacy of white men killing people of color for “ideals” of alleged national and racial purity. That’s “as American (sic) as apple pie.”Genocide, slavery, colonialism, patriarchy and capitalism are intertwined systems that create the basis for fascism in the United States. Indeed, people of color, Indigenous peoples, immigrants and colonized peoples have faced oppression throughout U.S. capitalist history.Fascism and capitalism at a dead endWhy are fascists becoming more organized and violent? Is it Donald Trump? Is it Proud Boys leader Gavin McInnes? Is it the internet?Historically, fascism has come as a response to a powerful working-class movement. Today’s embryonic fascist movement comes as a reaction to the gains of oppressed peoples, women, LGBTQ people, and others who have fought for justice.Stirred by the conditions of capitalist decay, growing austerity, joblessness and social crises, Trump and the right continue to spread fascist-like formulations to deceive the masses and attack whatever protections still exist for people of color, im/migrants and all workers.Fascism can arise as a desperate capitalist ruling class, determined to maintain its profit margins and domination, backs politicians who promise to unleash brutal, anti-democratic rule over the masses.Fascism is stoked by the ruling class. Billionaires such as Robert Mercer hire and fund organizations of white supremacist fascists. The Koch and De Vos families fund various white supremacist and anti-immigrant organizations to spread their violent lies.Beyond these many right-wing billionaires, the overall needs of the ruling class demand its overwhelming support for neoliberalism, austerity, automation, privatization, militarism and expanding exploitation — all of which create the basis for social upheavals that support the rise of fascism.Nov. 17: Unite to fight fascism in PhiladelphiaCommunists, socialists, anarchists and all progressive people will be the ones mobilizing in Philadelphia to show how to defeat racism and fascism.Through building principled solidarity, organizers will help to mobilize working-class opposition to white supremacy, anti-LGBTQ and anti-woman bigotry, and all forms of oppression in an effort to build unity against fascism and dead-end capitalism. Ultimately, a united movement that fights for the liberation of all oppressed people and seeks to build socialism will be the best deterrent to fascism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The programme is aimed at developing cutting edge office/commercial space to enable IDA and Enterprise Ireland to attract new FDI and indigenous companies and bring additional employment into the region.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Shannon Group plc, has described the announcement as a major validation of the ambitious investment program underway at the Shannon Free Zone.Group Chairman Rose Hynes explained: “Jaguar Land Rover is one of the world’s best known premium brands and to have it commit to such a significant investment here in Shannon is one of the biggest announcements for the Shannon Free Zone in decades.Shannon Group Chairperson Rose HynesThe fact that it is going to be engaged here in advancing its self-drive technologies reflects brilliantly on the ecosystem for smart technologies here. This is a very positive day for Shannon and the wider region and, we believe, is going to be followed by other similar announcements over the coming years.”Shannon Commercial Properties Managing Director Ray O’Driscoll said that it was huge endorsement of the investment program undertaken by the company.  “We welcome this announcement by Jaguar Land Rover and look forward to helping to make their very exciting commitment to this region a successful one. This is hugely positive news for Shannon Group and, indeed, for the region. To have a premium global brand establish a new base here speaks volumes for the attractiveness of this region for inward investment.“It validates the ambitious program we embarked on just over two years ago to develop facilities that would be capable of winning major inward investment just like this. The fact that our new business accommodation is being snapped up so readily reaffirms that our confidence in the Shannon Free Zone as an attractive location for major national and international brands is well placed.”Said Shannon Group CEO Matthew Thomas:  “The 150 jobs announced today are testament to a bold and well thought out investment program by Shannon Commercial Properties delivering state-of-the-art facilities. We have a brilliant combination of newly developed sites in the Shannon Free Zone next door to a fantastic international airport that creates a compelling proposition for business.  It is no surprise that over 40% of US FDI companies in Ireland are within Shannon Airport’s catchment area and every FDI announcement in the Mid-West cites the connectivity provided by Shannon Airport as a key factor in their investment decision.“The Shannon Free Zone is one of Ireland’s largest multi-sectoral business parks at the heart of a hugely attractive region for investment, located between two of the country’s top four cities that also includes five third level institutions.  We are really excited about the prospect for growth in the Limerick to Galway corridor in the coming years and playing a major role in creating effective economic development on the island of Ireland.”More business news here.

Oxford dons challenge CO2 limits

first_imgOxford scientists have challenged the value of studies that try to calculate the effects of increased levels of carbon dioxide on the climate. In this week’s ‘Science’ magazine, Dr Myles Allen and Dr Dave Frame argue that placing an upper limit on climate sensitivity is difficult and less relevant to environmental policy-making than is often assumed. “No one denies that quantifying climate system feedbacks is a crucial part of our attempts to understand the climate change problem,” said Dr Myles Allen of Oxford University’s Department of Physics, “but putting an upper bound on climate sensitivity has become something of a Holy Grail for climate researchers. What we are suggesting is that this may not be possible or very helpful.” Drs Allen and Frame suggest that the biggest mistake would be to place a fixed limit on carbon dioxide levels too early on, without leaving room for adapting to new research. Dr Allen said, “Providing our descendants have the good sense to adapt their policies to the emerging climate change signal they probably won’t care about how sensitive our climate is because they will have been smart enough to limit the damage.”last_img read more
