How to resume formal talks and have ceasefire in the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations (tags)

The Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) must address and resolve beforehand certain prejudicial questions raised by the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) in order to resume the formal talks in the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations. In this regard, the GRP must do the following: It must stop the extrajudicial killings, abductions, tortures, mass displacement of more than one million people and other human rights violations perpetrated by the reactionary armed forces. It must declare that it is against the "terrorist" blacklisting of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), New People’s Army (NPA) and the NDFP chief political consultant. It must indemnify the victims of human rights violations during the Marcos fascist regime. If the GRP wants to have a ceasefire during the peace negotiations, it must come to terms with the NDFP on the basis of the 10-point Concise Agreement for an Immediate Just Peace proposed by the NDFP and must agree with the NDFP on how to accelerate the forging of comprehensive agreements on social, economic and political reforms in order to address the root causes of the armed conflict.

Appeal to petition Israeli government to respect the right to education (tags)

The racist Israeli policies deprive and violate Palestinians' right to education and are used by the hegemonic power holders as a means of discrimination. Such discriminatory practices are apparent in not providing safe access to schools and institutions of higher education in unrecognized villages in the Galilee and the Negev, or by the militarization of educational spaces, the imposition of checkpoints or other militarized barriers (such as the separation wall) in the occupied Palestinian territories. The cumulative effect of these practices is a blatant violation of the right of students (especially females who are the most vulnerable segment of society) to study in an educational context that is safe and free from violence.

Infamous Slumlord Violates Probation (tags)

Infamous Convicted Slumlord, Monica Hujazi, who pled no contest to 10 violations of the Los Angeles County building health and saftety codes, last year, and is serving 3 years probation for those violations, is up to her old tricks again. Monica Helena Hujazi, 44, puportedly owns a slum empire in excess of 80 tennement style buildings, mostly in the San Francisco Bay area. She is expanding her empire by investing in dilapadated slum type buildings in the Los Angeles area as well. However, residents in Los Angeles are aware of Mrs. Hujazi's tactics and are organizing and fighting back in what can only be called a mass renters revolt. Her latest debacle, a old art deco apartment building, of 3 stories and 72 units, is litterally rotting to the ground. Despite the deplorable condition perpetuated on the low income renters of the Hollywood Area of Los Angeles, her rents are constantly escalating, in gross violation of the Rent Stabilization Ordinance of Los Angeles. A small, one room bachelors apartment at the Alexandria Court Apartments, now costs on or about $1,000.00 per month, and a one bedroom upwards of $1,400.00. She markets her building as a "luxury" apartment, by installing granite coutertops, marble flooring in the bathrooms, and new plumbing fixtures. But these efforts are only cosemetic, she does not renovate the buildings structural, plumbing, electrical, heating, or any other renovations at all. These tennants live in conditions reminescent of the slum tenements of New York, at the begining of the 19th century, complete with rats, mice, cock roaches, fleas, ticks, spiders, and other guests of her apartmets. The residents at the Alexandria building, now lovingly refer to thier home as the "Hujazi Hilton".
