Euron sucks. Not in a good, “Hi, I’m Joffrey the best villain in TV history kind of way.” In a bad, “my character is a bit weird and people don’t really like me” kind of way. In wrestling, they call this “X-Pac heat.”Anyway, Twitter got real upset about Rhaegon essentially getting murked by Euron’s fleet. Rightfully so in my humble opinion. With Rhaegal kicking the bucket and Jon Snow putting Ghost up for adoption, it was truly a difficult episode for the pets. Game of Throneslast_img read more

Stranded Rohingya refuse to return to Myanmar without citizenship guarantee

Stranded Rohingya refuse to return to Myanmar without citizenship guarantee

first_imgA man walks past the entrance of a camp set up by Myanmar`s Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Minister to prepare for the repatriation of displaced Rohingyas, who fled to Bangladesh, outside Maungdaw in the state of Rakhine. Photo: ReutersRohingya refugees living in no man’s land refused Tuesday to return to Myanmar without guarantees of citizenship and security after Bangladesh and Myanmar officials met to discuss their repatriation.The 6,000 Rohingya were among the first to flee Myanmar in the wake of a brutal military crackdown on the Muslim minority in late August. They have been living ever since in a makeshift camp in a strip of unclaimed land between the two countries.In recent weeks they have come under pressure to return, with a Myanmar minister warning of “consequences” if they remain in no man’s land.But community leader Dil Mohammad told AFP they would not return without guarantees of security, citizenship and compensation for property lost in the clampdown.“We are not going to return to our homes and villages in Myanmar unless our demands are met. We want citizenship, all rights, security to our lives and property and compensation,” he said.Mainly Buddhist Myanmar denies citizenship to its Muslim Rohingya minority in Rakhine state, insisting they are illegal immigrants from Bangladesh even though many have been there for generations.Nearly 700,000 fled after last year’s crackdown, which the United Nations has said amounted to ethnic cleansing.Most of those now live in camps across the border in Bangladesh, but the country’s government has made clear it does not want them to stay and has agreed to start sending them home.On Tuesday officials from both countries held talks to decide the fate of the 6,000 before speaking to them directly in no man’s land.“Every person we spoke to said that they would go back to their homes if they got security,” said the head of the Bangladesh delegation, Abdul Mannan.A spokeswoman for the UN refugee agency told AFP any returns must be voluntary.“Some members of this group in no man’s land have said they fear returning home and wish to seek safety in Bangladesh,” Caroline Gluck said.“We appeal to the Bangladeshi authorities to allow them to do so. At the same time, Myanmar should ensure conducive conditions for the safe and sustainable return of those who wish to do so voluntarily.”A video circulated on social media last week showed Myanmar’s deputy minister for home affairs Aung Soe addressing the refugees through a barbed-wire fence.Other Rohingya living there said the Myanmar army had recently set up bunkers near the fence and now conducted regular patrols nearby, stirring fear among the refugees.“They tell us that we should leave this place or else they will shoot us,” said Rashid Ahmed, 32.Bangladesh was supposed to start the repatriation process last month but it has been delayed amid concerns over a lack of preparation.Recent aerial photos of Rakhine state showed bulldozed Rohingya settlements, and it is unclear whether they will be able to return to their former homes.last_img

House adopts Howrylak resolution memorializing the Fall of Saigon

House adopts Howrylak resolution memorializing the Fall of Saigon

first_img Categories: Howrylak News,Howrylak Photos 30Apr House adopts Howrylak resolution memorializing the Fall of Saigon State Rep. Martin Howrylak today introduced a resolution recognizing the week of April 26 through May 2 as Black April Memorial Week.“I am humbled for the opportunity to introduce this resolution to recognize the hundreds of thousands who lost their lives in this conflict and struggles of the Vietnamese refugees,” said Howrylak, R-Troy. “More than 2.6 million Americans fought in the Vietnam War, and it’s our duty to recognize their sacrifice as well as the sacrifice of countless Vietnamese citizens in the name of freedom for the Vietnamese people.”This year marks the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War and the start of the eventual exodus of several million Vietnamese out of Vietnam after Saigon fell to the communists on April 30, 1975. Following the capture of Vietnam’s capital city, more than 800,000 Vietnamese citizens fled their country instead of living under the rein of terror and retribution exhibited upon the south Vietnamese citizens by the Communists from the north and the Soviet Union. Today, the United States is proudly home to a Vietnamese American community of more than 1.7 million people—20,000 of whom call Michigan home.“After many Vietnamese fled their country in hope of better future, at least 300,000 lost their lives in dangerous boats and at the hand of pirates,” Howrylak said. “It is important that we remember the past hardships and suffering, as well as recognize the achievements of Vietnamese-Americans.”Rep. Howrylak was joined at the Capitol by members of the Vietnamese American Association of Michigan, including its president, Hai Truong, and immediate past president, Vinh Duong.###State Rep. Martin Howrylak, R-Troy, was joined by honored guests of the Vietnamese American Association of Michigan, including its president, Mr. Hai Truong, as members of the Legislature and guests today recognized the week of April 26 through May 2 as Black April Memorial Week in Michigan. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975. On this date forty years ago, the invading Communist forces, in direct violation of the Paris Peace Accord, assaulted and took over the capital city of Saigon, thus ushering in a time of great tribulation in southern Vietnam. The week of April 30 is known by the name Black April amongst Vietnamese Americans and is used as a time of commemoration of the Fall of Saigon.last_img read more

House overwhelmingly approves Rep Haucks plan to Raise the Age

House overwhelmingly approves Rep Haucks plan to Raise the Age

first_img25Apr House overwhelmingly approves Rep. Hauck’s plan to ‘Raise the Age’ Categories: Hauck News State Rep. Roger Hauck speaks in support of his “Raise the Age” legislation today on the floor of the Michigan House.State Rep. Roger Hauck’s plan to end the policy requiring all 17-year-olds to be treated as adults in Michigan’s criminal justice system today was overwhelmingly approved by the Michigan House.Hauck, who sponsored the plan alongside a bipartisan group of his colleagues, said Michigan is one of just four states still requiring all 17-year-olds to be prosecuted as adults – even those who commit the most minor offenses. He said eliminating this harmful and ineffective practice will help rehabilitate young offenders and reduce the likelihood of them breaking the law again in the future.“Statistically, 17-year-old offenders sent through the juvenile justice system are much less likely to reoffend than older teens who go through adult court,” said Hauck, of Isabella County’s Union Township. “This one simple reform will help troubled teens all across our state turn their lives around.”Including 17-year-olds in the juvenile system has been shown to reduce reoffending by 34 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control.Hauck’s plan would raise the age at which individuals are considered adults for the purposes of prosecuting and adjudicating criminal offenses, allowing 17-year-olds to be treated as minors within the juvenile system in most circumstances beginning Oct. 1, 2021. Prosecutors will continue to have discretion, allowing them to waive minors who commit violent crimes into the adult system when appropriate.The measure also includes a funding plan to ensure local communities do not incur any additional costs associated with keeping 17-year-old offenders in the juvenile system, which is administered at the local level. Funding was the key sticking point that halted similar reform efforts in the past.Hauck said the proposal is expected to save public tax dollars over time. Other states that have raised the age have downsized their juvenile justice systems and lowered both short-term and long-term costs.“Anything we do to reduce the number of people in Michigan prisons will free up more public tax dollars to be invested in roads, schools and other critical services,” Hauck said. “This policy will result in brighter futures for both teens and taxpayers.”House Bills 4133-46, 4443 and 4452 now move to the Senate for consideration.###last_img read more
