Syrian trade unions appeal for solidarity

first_imgThe following appeal was issued by the Executive Bureau of the General Federation of Trade Unions of  the Syrian Arab Republic right before the U.S. bombing of Damascus.Dear comrades, brothers and sisters,The United States and its followers from European countries, such as France, Britain and their proxies in the region such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and others, have been staging provocations against Syria to carry out their agendas on Syrian territory since their terrorist war against Syria began eight years ago.These days we are witnessing the fabrication of alleged evidence, the latest example of which is the fabricated fiction of the Eastern Ghouta hit by chemical weapons used by the Syrian Arab Army. These colonial powers have always used the U.N. Security Council and its instruments to strike sovereign states by using illusory and fabricated pretexts to achieve their goals, such as the famous fiction of Colin Powell in the U.N. Security Council used to strike Iraq.The chemical fiction was staged in Douma when the terrorists experienced the victories of the Syrian Arab Army that liberated eastern Ghouta, which contributed to the safety and tranquility of the people of Damascus, who had suffered a lot from the terrorists raining the capital, Damascus, with dozens of missiles and rockets.The more the Syrian Arab Army achieves victories on the ground, the more the terrorists urge their paymasters to save them, as happened when they fabricated the chemical incident in Khan Sheikhoun.This time, U.S. President Trump, French President Macron, and British Prime Minister May accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons in Douma on the basis of evidence and fabricated false videos of the so-called White Helmets, who are the medical wing of the fascist terrorists Al-Nusra in Syria.They have held meetings of the U.N. Security Council in order to issue resolutions to strike the only legitimate Syrian government, one that fights terrorism in the world, despite the assertion of a member state in the Security Council, Russia, that the Douma area was free of any chemical traces after the Russian experts entered Damascus, refuting their claims.The Syrian government has asked the experts of the International Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to enter and verify the incident, but Trump and his assistants from European and Gulf Arab countries blocked their ears and decided to proceed with their lies and threats.We at the General Union of Trade Unions in Syria declare our stand with our Syrian government and Syrian Arab Army under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad, alongside whom we have faced terrorism and its sponsors for eight years. We affirm that we are confident of victory. These American and European threats constitute a flagrant violation of the U.N. Charter.We call upon all honorable people from the World Federation of Trade Unions, the International Confederation of Arab Trade Unions and all Arab and international organizations to speed up the campaign of defending Syria by sending messages of solidarity and support to Syria and organizing marches and sit-ins in front of the American embassies in the world, condemning this blatant American aggression, to save the world from Trump’s ruthlessness.We ask you to send letters to officials of the United Nations and the United States of America, stressing that the American president will lead to a new world war that will drag the whole world to further chaos, destruction and poverty and increase the number of refugees from the wars waged by the United States against sovereign states in the world.Long live the Syrian people in their war against terrorism! Long live international solidarity with Syria!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

CBI launches forum for cross-border placements

first_img Comments are closed. CBI launches forum for cross-border placementsOn 6 Jun 2000 in Personnel Today The CBI has launched a forum to help HR directors handle the complexity of cross-border placements and manage multinational teams in Europe.It reflects the increasing consolidation with the single currency area. Many companies have a European HR policy, under which employees across the continent are treated alike. A formal launch is to be held at a London conference with ECA International this week. There will be a dedicated web site within two months.This is in advance of the long-awaited European Company Statute, which will give companies the ability to register only once for the continent. The statute is still on hold, but is expected to be passed within the next year. Company reorganisations are occurring despite the fact social security systems and many labour laws are still organised along national lines.“One thing we are keen to do is provide CBI members with information on different countries’ tax, pension and social security systems. We get calls from people who have already sent someone and only then are they starting to look at these things,” said Thomas Hadley, senior policy officer at the CBI.The European Commission plans to facilitate retention of pension rights as people move between countries. It also plans to pass legislation increasing the range of qualifications that are recognised across the continent. At the Lisbon summit in March it announced an EU qualification for basic IT skills.Cultural and language issues can be formidable. The CBI says these are underestimated by British managers. “A lot of English people think English is the language of business and they do not need to bother. But if you want to be international and develop the company you need linguistic skills.”Even small- and medium-sized companies have an international presence, and often need managers with an international perspective, said Hadley. “Mobility is part of career development,” he said.European employment consultant Peter Reid said UK companies “should be able to see their natural catchment area as being the whole of the European Union, rather than be artificially restricted to the UK”. But he warned that employers face cultural inhibitions in encouraging people to move. “There are very few people in Europe who leave a small geographical area.”www.cbi.org.uk/euromobility www.tmaworld.com Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Handbell Choir to tour in China

first_imgFive years ago, Jonathan Noble, director of Notre Dame’s Beijing Global Gateway, heard the Notre Dame Handbell Choir perform before a group of senior Chinese education officials. With plans underway to open a new location, Noble decided the handbells would play at its dedication, Karen Schneider-Kirner, director of the Handbell Choir, said. This weekend, 14 members of the Handbell Choir will travel to Beijing to play for the long-anticipated dedication, followed by a week of concerts before Chinese audiences.“For the staff that works there, it’s a big deal to highlight why they’re there,” Schneider-Kirner said. “They want to introduce more Chinese students to Notre Dame, but also provide a space where American students can go and learn more about Chinese business practices or get involved in other universities over China.”The new center is located in Genesis Beijing, a state-of-the-art building offering filtered air and access to cultural events, lectures and an art museum. After the Gateway’s dedication ceremony, the choir will play several more concerts in Beijing before traveling to Chengdu.“The bells originated in China. It’s one of the oldest musical instruments we have, but Chinese people in general know nothing about what we know as a handbell choir today, with the smaller brass bells playing different tunes and intricate patterns,” Schneider-Kirner said. “It will be something very unique to the people we’ll be playing for.”In addition to the cultural connection, the bells offer a means of avoiding the censorship of China’s atheist government, Schneider-Kirner said.“With the bells, it doesn’t involve lyrics. As more of a sacred music group, I think we can translate better since China overall is a pretty atheistic country,” she added.The Handbell Choir will, however, be able to participate in Catholic services at South Cathedral in Beijing and Pinganqiao Cathedral in Chengdu.“This is a pretty groundbreaking trip because we’re also doing things within the Catholic Church,” Schneider-Kirner said. “About a year ago, a Fr. Matthew, the rector of South Cathedral in Beijing, came to meet with [University president] Fr. John [Jenkins] as a way to open up doors for collaboration. He’ll be saying a Mass with us and then we’ll be doing a concert at the Cathedral for a hundred seminarians.”The Handbell Choir will play several more concerts in and near Beijing over the next few days: three at an international school, one in collaboration with a Chinese instrument orchestra at Peking University and one on the Great Wall.“We’re just stuffing bells in our backpacks and bringing portable music stands,” Schneider-Kirner said. “Apparently it’s nothing we can ask permission for; we’re just going to do it and see what happens.”After a few days in Beijing, the choir will fly to Chengdu, where they will play two more concerts in collaboration with Szechuan University.“We’ll combine with different groups: There’s a Chinese instrument orchestra, a 25-member erhu orchestra, a 50-member choir and a symphony orchestra from the school,” Schneider-Kirner said. “Some of these pieces we’re doing together; in order to bridge the gap, I’ve arranged a bunch of traditional Chinese music pieces that I think will work well on the bells, just so we’re not bringing completely unfamiliar music.” About one third of the music the choir will play on the trip is traditional Chinese music, while the other two thirds are drawn from their usual repertoire, Schneider-Kirner said. The choir will finish their tour playing at a Mass and concert at Pinganqiao Cathedral in Chengdu and sharing a dinner with the parents of a former choir member. Schneider-Kirner explained that the purpose of the trip is to convey a message of welcome from Notre Dame to the students at the various universities they will perform at and to bridge the cultural gap.“We thought it would be a great opportunity … to do things within the Catholic church, which is pretty phenomenal. I don’t know if any other Notre Dame groups, particularly religiously affiliated, have ever done anything in China. It’s definitely groundbreaking in that way,” Schneider-Kirner said. “Primarily, it’s a great opportunity to promote peace and understanding and building bridges with our sisters and brothers in Asia.”Tags: China, fall break, Handbell Choirlast_img read more

Teams express readiness for STAG Elite League Leaders tourney

first_imgTWO of the four teams for the upcoming STAG Elite League (SEL) League Leaders tournament have expressed a state of readiness ahead of the kickoff this weekend in Georgetown.Present during a press conference yesterday morning, both the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and Fruta Conquerors FC expressed a state of readiness for the competition.Bilaal Nantambo, coach of the GDF team contended that his team know what they have to do come match day.“We have identified a formation we want to work with and we will continue to work with that because there is always room for improvement. We weren’t really interrupted by the transfer so we didn’t have a major set of reshuffling to do, just the lengthy break that took its toll,” he said.“We are just preparing ourselves. Keeping our focus so when the league starts, we will come out victorious and play the same brand of football we played last year and continue on our winning ways,” GDF captain Delwin Fraser contended.Derrick Carter, captain of Fruta Conquerors FC, stated that his team are expecting nothing short of the top prize considering the various changes that have been made.“Our preparation going into this half of the league is much better than how we prepared in the first half. In terms of experience, our team is much more boosted whilst in the first half, we were more youthful and our training session is much more intense,” Carter added.“We are gelling because most of the players returned home. Their prodigal sons are coming back home. Most of the players with the exception of Konata Mannings would have played in the first season with Fruta or played some part with the team over the years,” contended head coach David Headley.He added that there is a hunger in the camp for the trophy considering these changes, adding that fans can expect higher quality football from the Tucville side.Also present was STAG representative Colin Stuart.He noted that the company will be giving out a Gillette hamper worth $5 000 as a gate prize as well as crowd supporters will have a chance to win six packs through skill contests.“Over the first half, it (the STAG Elite League) was a success for us and we are actually looking forward to better and more support in the second half, ” he stated when questioned about the company’s views.The other two teams, Victoria Kings FC and Buxton United, were unable to make the press conference.The League Leaders tournament will begin with its first double-header, featuring Victoria Kings FC against Buxton United FC and GDF FC vs Fruta Conquerors FC (Playoff #1 and #2).This will be followed by Playoff #3 and the final which will feature Winner of #1 Playoff vs Loser of #2 Playoff on March 1 and Winner of #2 Playoff vs Winner of #3 Playoff on March 5 respectively.last_img read more
