The responsibility of the newly appointed Foreign Secretary, Carl Greenidge, is primarily dedicated to protecting Guyana’s sovereignty full time. This was disclosed by the former Foreign Affairs Minister, Carl Greenidge, who was this week re-assigned by President David Granger.During an interview with the Department of Public Information (DPI), Foreign Secretary Greenidge described the responsibility as a prime and urgent concern since Guyana is still dealing with the Venezuela/Guyana border controversy. The matter is presently at the International Court of Justice for a juridical settlement.“We have communication from the Government of Venezuela pertaining to our maritime space and raising questions about activities within our maritime space, even offshore of Demerara and Berbice. So, you do not really get a break to take a breather and settle down, we in the Ministry have been working,” Greenidge stated.Additionally, he said that he is also in the process of renegotiating the Georgetown agreement. That is the agreement that brings 79 African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) to collaborate with the European Union for development.“We are working on that and there is a meeting of the Trade Ministers in this coming week to be followed by the Council of Ministers. So, my hands are pretty full and the main concern is to make sure that we do not lose any momentum as we do some of the organisational juggling,” Greenidge underscored.On May 14, Government announced that Greenidge was appointed Foreign Secretary at the Foreign Affairs Ministry and now has responsibility for the Department of Frontiers and Territorial Integrity and the Department of Trade and Economic Cooperation.Foreign Secretary Carl Greenidge
A PROUD Glencolmcille man has appeared in a TV advert supporting his son’s bid for a seat in the United States Congress. Brendan F. Boyle is already a Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.As Donegal Daily reported last month, his father Frank is a native Irish speaker from Glencolmcille who left Ireland in 1970 aged 19.And if there was ever an advert for the American dream, then his family’s story is it.Son Brendan went on to win a scholarship in Notre Dame and is now the state representative from the 170th District, which covers parts of Northeast Philadelphia and Montgomery County. He has represented the district since 2009 and has now announced his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives for Pennsylvania’s 13th congressional district.His brother Kevin also serves Pennsylvania, following in his brother’s footsteps in 2010 – to become the first brothers to serve together in the state legislature.Their father Frank works as a janitor on the state’s transport system – and goes out canvassing for his son in the evenings.And he appears in this video TV advert above!The primary elections are tomorrow, the first round battle where Brendan – who visits Donegal regularly – is taking on the power and wealth of the Clintons.Wealthy Marjorie Margolies (71), is also running for the seat – she is Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law!Brendan takes pride in his work ethic, and says he is the “only candidate, from beginning to end, that has talked about the fact that the middle class is forgotten by Washington, D.C., at a time when income inequality is at an all-time high.” He said he isn’t fazed by the Clinton’s involvement with the Margolies campaign, including $1,000-a-head fundraisers with both Bill and Hillary.“They’re in-laws and I certainly understand their involvement — the fact that both have done fundraisers certainly shows that they’ve made it a priority,” Boyle told ABC News at the weekend.“Bill Clinton was a good president, but it’s not his name on the ballot. Voters need to ask who would be the best congressperson.”Heading into Tuesday’s primary in the Democratic-leaning district, Boyle said he’s trying make do “with as little sleep as possible.” “I was up at 5:30 shaking hands at the train station, then I did radio interviews. I’m campaigning at diners all afternoon, and attending school fundraisers tonight,” he said.If he were to win, it would shake the political establishment sending a politician to Congress who doesn’t wield cheque books in his bid for power.CLICK PLAY to see the advert above:DDTV: POLITICIAN FEATURES PROUD DONEGAL DAD IN US CONGRESS RACE TV ADVERT was last modified: May 19th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Brendan BoyleCongresselectionIrish American

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday met Governor V.P. Singh Badnore to apprise him of the law and order situation in the State.“We will review the situation again on Tuesday before taking any decision on lifting the curfew,” Capt. Singh told presspersons. “Of the 10 districts in which curfew was enforced, it has been lifted in five. Night curfew continues for the time being in the five districts of Mansa, Bathind, Faridkot, Barnala and Samna, and Patran sub-division of district Patiala. The Army has been deployed in two districts of Mansa and in Malout town of Muktsar as a preventive measure,” he said. The ban on mobile data services in Punjab would be lifted on Tuesday. The decision on opening schools and colleges in the sensitive districts of had been left to the respect Deputy Commissioners. He said that in addition to the list of damaged properties, the State would file before the High Court a claim for recovery from the Dera the expenditure incurred in the deployment of Central forces. “… there was no report of any violence after Friday’s incidents,” he said.
Pune police carried out a seven-hour-long search early on Tuesday morning at the residences of prominent human rights lawyers and activists across Nagpur, Pune and Delhi to probe their role in the Elgar Parishad and alleged links with Naxals.The police raided the homes of Rona Wilson in New Delhi, Surendra Gadling in Nagpur, and Kabir Kala Manch (KKM) members Sudhir Dhavale, Harshali Potdar, Jyoti Jagtap, Ramesh Ghaichor and Deepak Dhengle in Pune. Mr. Gadling was the lawyer of G.N. Saibaba, a former Delhi University professor who was accused of having links with Maoists. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said in Mumbai that the raids were part of a nationwide operation against people believed to be associated with Naxalism, and had no relation to the Bhima-Koregaon clashes. While authorities who conducted the searches refused to comment, police sources said that the raids were aimed at finding out if the participants of the Elgar Parishad had or retained any links to Naxals or Maoists.Victory over oppressionThe Elgar Parishad was organised at Shaniwarwada Fort on December 31 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of Bhima-Koregaon, in which about 500 soldiers of the untouchable Mahar community fought alongside the British Indian army to defeat over 20,000 soldiers of Peshwa Bajirao II. The organisers believed that the battle was a victory over caste-based oppression. Thousands of participants gathered at Shaniwarwada for the event and then marched towards Bhima-Koregaon village, 40 km from Pune. However, on January 1, violent clashes between two groups marred the bicentenary celebrations, resulting in the death of one person, Rahul Phatangale of Sanaswadi village.Mr. Gadling said the search was an attempt to terrorise activists standing up to the “fascist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh”. He said, “They [government] are not punishing the culprits in the rape of a child in Kathua, but are targeting participants of the Elgar Parishad.They have left out people like Sambhaji Bhide and Milind Ekbote and are targeting activists associated with the Dalit movement. Those who openly oppose the RSS’s fascist agenda are being pressured. This is a clear attempt to muzzle democratic voices in the country.”Mr. Gadling, who has represented many people accused of having links with Naxals during his 25-year-long practice, said, “Our country is divided into two faction. One is the RSS and the other the anti-RSS. Those who are standing up to the RSS or helping others who are fighting this fascist organisation are being crushed with the help of government agencies. The message is loud and clear. They won’t touch you if you do not say anything against the RSS, but they will trouble you if you say a word against it.” Mr. Gadling also alleged that the police took away CDs related to a project work done by his children. He said, “I am a simple lawyer. I did not even participate in the Bhima-Koregaon protest or programme. They have taken away my research work and important documents related to my practice. They even took away CDs of projects done by my son and niece, and pen drives belonging to my wife. They also confiscated CDs of weddings, birthdays, songs and Bollywood movies. They came to my home in 10 to 15 vehicles. “The attempt was to terrorise my family and the people in my locality. This is an attempt to terrorize us, but we won’t buckle under this pressure. We are sons of [Dr. B.R.] Ambedkar. We are being targeted as we talk of Ambedkar and oppose [Prime Minister] Narendra Modi and the RSS.”The KKM, a radical Dalit and working-class cultural troupe, has alleged that it has been made “a scapegoat” to divert attention from the real perpetrators of the clashes. KKM activists have condemned the State’s ‘pressure tactics’ and claim that they are being “unjustly targeted” for demanding the arrest of Sambhaji Bhide, the octogenarian Hindutva leader of Shiv Pratishthan who is the prime accused in the Bhima-Koregaon violence. ‘Soft targets’Ms. Jagtap said, “Why are we being searched now, months after the FIR was lodged against us? Each time, we are ‘soft targets’ for the government and the police machinery, who accuse us of promoting Maoist-Naxalite ideology.” Ms. Jagtap said that the searches began at 6 a.m. and went on till noon. She said, “The search team especially marked out literature, which included pamphlets on Ambedkar’s thoughts and those of progressive activists like Annabhau Sathe. There is nothing sinister about these tracts. We did not attempt to hide, print or distribute anything inflammatory during the Elgar Parishad.”Ms. Jagtap said that the KKM was not the only outfit that had participated in the Elgar Parishad, which saw more than 200 liberal and Ambedkarite groups taking part. On the night of January 8, Vishrambaug Wada police had lodged an FIR against six KKM members for making “inflammatory” speeches and delivering “socially divisive” presentations during their troupe’s performance at the Elgar Parishad on December 31, which lasted nearly eight hours from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Booked for ‘hate speech’On January 3, Vishrambaug police lodged a case against newly elected Gujarat Assembly MLA Jignesh Mevani and Jawaharlal Nehru University Umar Khaled for allegedly promoting enmity between two groups by making provocative speeches at the Elgar Parishad.Mr. Mevani, Mr. Khalid, Dalit leader Prakash Ambedkar and Radhika Vemula, the mother of Rohith Vemula, a Ph.D. scholar who hanged himself at the University of Hyderabad two years ago on January 17, were among the speakers at the event.
The Celtics already had had quite the summer after they signed Hayward to a four-year deal worth about $128 million and traded Avery Bradley to clear cap space for him. When Irving asked for a trade, general manager Danny Ainge pounced, shipping out Thomas — a fan favorite and the team’s biggest star — along with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round draft pick.Irving would not say whether he plans to talk to Cavaliers superstar LeBron James about his trade demand, telling reporters: “It’s not anybody else’s business.”“It’s just really between two men,” he said. “If it happens or not, I’m pretty sure you guys won’t know about it.”For now, he is worried about his new team.“There’s just a lot of newness I have to get used to, which I’m excited about,” he said Monday. “It’s going to come in waves, man, these ups and downs we’re about to face as a team. … It will really echo in terms of our identity and how we’re going to respond.”ADVERTISEMENT Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Read Next Thomas is out, shipped to Cleveland in a package that brought Kyrie Irving to Boston and completed — for now, at least — a near-total makeover of the team that had the best record in the Eastern Conference last year.But that doesn’t mean Hayward is disappointed that the team he is going to play with looks much different from the one he thought he had joined.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“You’re talking about two superstar players, two incredible offensively talented players,” Hayward said Monday at the Celtics media day.“It would have been amazing to have the opportunity to play with I.T.
