15-strong gang carry out racist attack

Wednesday, 23 April 2014

A man has lost two teeth after he and two others were targeted in a racist attack in east Belfast.

Two men in their early 20s and a 19-year-old woman, all from Eastern Europe, were assaulted by a gang of around 15 people at waste ground near Lawnmount Street on Monday between 9pm and 9.30pm.

The gang – which included one woman – assaulted the victims with golf clubs leaving them with bruising and cuts, while one man lost two teeth.

Police are treating it as a race hate crime and are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the attack to contact them on the new non-emergency number 101.

#FreeThe4 Domestic Violence. Silence hides abuse

Domestic violence 2 Silence-Hides-Violence

Domestic violence and abuse: new definition

The cross-government definition of domestic violence and abuse is:

any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to:

  • psychological

  • physical

  • sexual

  • financial

  • emotional

domestic violence 1

Controlling behaviour

Controlling behaviour is a range of acts designed to make a person subordinate and/or dependent by isolating them from sources of support, exploiting their resources and capacities for personal gain, depriving them of the means needed for independence, resistance and escape and regulating their everyday behaviour.

Coercive behaviour

Coercive behaviour is an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim.

This is not a legal definition.

Definition of domestic violence and abuse: guide for local areas

To help local areas consider the consider how the extension to the definition of domestic violence and abuse may impact on their services, the Home Office, in partnership with Against Violence and Abuse (AVA) has produced a guide for local areas.

A guide for Wales is currently being developed and will be published in due course.

Forced marriage

Read information and practice guidelines for professionals protecting, advising and supporting victims of forced marriage.

Three steps to escaping domestic violence

Read the leaflet the Home Office developed with Southall Black Sisters at women in black and minority ethnic communities: Three steps to escaping domestic violence.

Domestic abuse and young people

The changes to the definition of domestic raise awareness that young people in the 16 to 17 age group can also be victims of domestic violence and abuse.

By including this age group the government hopes to encourage young people to come forward and get the support they need, through a helpline or specialist service.

Young people’s panel

A young people’s panel will be set up by the NSPCC. The panel will consist of up to 5 members between the age of 16 and 22, who will work with the government on domestic violence policy and wider work to tackle violence against women and girls.

Domestic violence disclosure scheme

From 8 March 2014, the domestic violence disclosure scheme will be implemented across England and Wales. This follows the successful conclusion of a 1 year pilot in the Greater Manchester, Nottinghamshire, West Mercia and Wiltshire police force areas.

Right to ask

Under the scheme an individual can ask police to check whether a new or existing partner has a violent past. This is the ‘right to ask’. If records show that an individual may be at risk of domestic violence from a partner, the police will consider disclosing the information. A disclosure can be made if it is legal, proportionate and necessary to do so.

Right to know

This enables an agency to apply for a discloure if the agency believes that an indivdual is at risk of domestic violence from their partner. Again, the police can release information if it is lawful, necessary and proportionate to do so.

The pilot assessment report and the impact assessment on the disclosure scheme are available. You can also read the domestic violence disclosure scheme guidance.

Domestic violence protection notices and orders

Domestic violence protection orders (DVPOs) are being implemented across England and Wales from 8 March 2014. This follows the successful conclusion of a 1 year pilot in the West Mercia, Wiltshire and Greater Manchester police force areas.

Domestic violence protection orders are a new power that fills a gap in providing protection to victims by enabling the police and magistrates to put in place protection in the immediate aftermath of a domestic violence incident.

With DVPOs, a perpetrator can be banned with immediate effect from returning to a residence and from having contact with the victim for up to 28 days, allowing the victim time to consider their options and get the support they need.

Before the scheme, there was a gap in protection, because police couldn’t charge the perpetrator for lack of evidence and so provide protection to a victim through bail conditions, and because the process of granting injunctions took time.

The DVPO evaluation report and the DVPO impact assessment are available. You can also read the DVPO interim guidelines.

Tony Blair’s former Attorney General Lord Morris says the unacceptable delay in publishing the findings of Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry is a national scandal

PA

Unacceptable: The findings of Sir John Chilcot’s report into the Iraq War continue to be delayed

It has been four years and nearly five months since the inquiry into the Iraq War was launched.

Yet two years after Sir John Chilcot was due to deliver the results of his £7.5 million probe, nothing has been heard.

Last week Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg hinted that former Prime Minister Tony Blair had been delaying its publication.

Today Lord Morris, ex Labour MP and Attorney General in Mr Blair’s Government from 1997 to 1999, calls for its immediate publication…

The delay in the publication of the Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq War is a national scandal.

Following the precedent of the Franks Inquiry into the Falklands…

#IHaveADrone Obama has authorized 193 drone strikes in Pakistan – four times the amount authorized by George W. Bush. According to Global Research, over the past four years, Obama has authorized attacks in Pakistan which have killed more than 800 innocent civilians and just 22 Al-Qaeda officers.

That constitutes at least 36 civilians per target.

How many of those are children? A new study compiled from The Bureau of Investigative Journalism lays it bare:

I have a Drone. Speech Trans

I have a drone so that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its greed. “We hold all the regions resources to be ours; that all humanity are goyim.”

I have a drone that sends Pakistani, Yemeni, Afghani women and children to meet their maker. I can call them combatants and the media concur.

I have a drone that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former Bankers and the sons of former News Media will be able to sit down together at a table of Skull and Bones.

I have a drone that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into prison facility to house 1,000′s of the growing black population.

I have a drone that my two children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by their academic achievements but by their affiliation to CFR, Red Shield & AIPAC.

I have a drone today, it’s a predator.

The Rogue State of Israel is Now Fingered as Direct Enemy of the U.S. Constitution and the American People~ by Tom Heneghan, International Intelligence Expert

If the Israeli government has indeed ordered its spies “to dig up intelligence” showing links between the supporters of BDS and “terrorists and enemy states” asreported in the February 11, 2014 London Times, it may find that it already has as much information as it needs in its data banks.
 

As described in the UK Guardian by Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill, a 2008 document obtained by whistleblower Edward Snowden states that “one of the NSA’s biggest threats is actually from friendly intelligence services, like Israel.

Great tips from

How to Start a Movement in 7 Easy Steps

by SocialMediaToday

“You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world” – The Beatles

In this day, people really have a lot of power. The Internet has been the great equalizer with social movements and grassroots campaigns gathering lightning speed in just a few clicks. Social networks and utilizing social media marketing can help perpetuate whatever movement you are trying to create. Not all movements create great social change, some are just for fun and entertainment. (For example, “talk like a pirate day.“) Starting a movement can be a great way to create buzz and attention to what you are doing.

So… How do you start a movement?

Step 1: Know Your Movement

Know who you want to take action and what action you want them to take. “Hey Everyone! Let’s do something!” is not going to get anyone moving. “Hey Moms! Get up and get walking on a weekly ‘mom walk’!” Now I obviously know you don’t want me in that movement, but I know lots of moms who would be interested and will gladly pass information on!

Step 2: Get Educated

What would be the concerns about people starting the movement? Are there legalities you need to be aware of? What questions might a media mogul ask when interviewing you about the movement? The historical evolution of the movement, scientific evidence, tid bits of “gee-whiz” trivia are a few things you might want to have in your utility belt. “Research has shown that petting a puppy at least 3 times a week improves positivity in people by 50%*” sounds better than “I was petting my dog and just thought, it would be cool if other people could pet dogs too!” (*not actual data, I made that stuff up. But please use actual data as people will call you out on it and you will look like a fool :) )

Step 3: Make it popular

Want to know what’s popular… go to any newspaper or news website and see what is on the front page. Do you visualize your movement following along the lines of those stories? Popular topics that get people moving:

  • Kids
  • Animals
  • World Peace
  • Celebrities in trouble
  • Diseases
  • The Bizarre/Funny
  • Politics
  • Sports/health/fitness

Step 4: Rally the troops

Now you need to let people know about your movement! E-mail those you know who will be interested, reach out to your social network, post on your blog, contact like-minded groups and organizations and let them know. Provide information about your movement, which you came up with in step 1. Sprinkle in some factual tid bits, which you researched in step 2. And if you are moving on a popular topic, like in step 3, there will be no reason the troops (at least some troops) won’t rally behind you.

Step 5: Set up communication

Create a point of communication and encourage people to participate. This is easier than ever! If you don’t have a website or blog for people to come to, you can set up a facebook group, yahoo group, ning.com community, and the list goes on and on and on. Just make it ease to participate and encourage people to contribute. No matter how smart you think you are, there will always be this one question to answer: How do we make this better? Let others take a stab and build upon your movement.

Step 6: Get Noticed

Once you have your troops together and communication set up, the movement is on its way. Reach out to the press, your political leaders, the world, and let them know that the movement has started. The Blog-sphere has become the first point of news and you might already find your movement is spinning just in reaching out in step 4. Don’t get comfortable with that, keep the ball moving by letting influential people know that your movement is growing and that they will want to pay attention!

Step 7: Take it easy

Know that people are imperfect and will get discouraged. As the leader of this new movement, do not be too rigid in the requirements. Be understanding and provide encouragement, better yet, encourage others to encourage others (odd sentence, but didn’t know how else to write it :) ).  You should be the point of motivation and provide the means for further support (step 5: set up communications).

It is one thing to sit behind your blog and make a few observations. Taking action! Getting people excited to actually do something! That takes it to a whole new level. Being at the forefront of the movement will bring exposure and recognition with the possibility of a viral landslide. One thing to always keep in mind is, while you might position yourself as the poster child of the movement, it is not about you, it is about what is happening.

What movements will you start?
