Aprobar una ley, que proteja a las personas mayores de 50 años que han cotizado más de 30 años y se han quedado sin trabajo

Por un colectivo de ciudadanos mayores de 50 años que perdieron de una forma directa o indirecta su puesto de trabajo, ante la actual crisis que atraviesa este País, debida casi con toda seguridad a la codicia y avaricia del ser humano, al especular alterando el precio real de algunos productos financieros, para ganar mucho dinero de una forma fácil y rápida. Así como también por no defender el gobierno nuestros intereses comerciales frente a la importación de productos procedentes de países con mano de obra barata. Un colectivo,  que lo está pasando francamente mal, viéndose frustrados a la desesperación e impotencia, al no ver una salida a su desesperada situación, abocados con ello a la depresión, llegando incluso en  muchos casos, al suicidio. Siendo  este colectivo el más vulnerable ante la crisis, ya que perdieron su puesto de trabajo, sin perspectivas de volver a recuperarlo, por ser considerados mayores para el mercado laboral por una gran parte de esta sociedad.      Que tras haber cotizado más de 30  años en la mayoría de los casos, sobreviven (si cumplen con los requisitos) con una ayuda de 426€,  que no cubre ni  una cuarta parte de las necesidades básicas del ser humano.    Pues si esto no es así,  invito a cualquier político de este País, a que demuestre, cómo se sobrevive con esta cantidad,  pagando todos los meses, el alquiler, la hipoteca, la luz, el agua, la comida, etc., etc....(pues no imagino yo a Mariano Rajoy, ni a ningún otro cargo público en esta situación).   Es una vergüenza que en un País que presume de democrático, que tiene más de cuatrocientoscientosmil cargos públicos y políticos, con miles de coches oficiales, siete aviones privados, que mantiene una monarquía de cuento de hadas y princesas...Todos ellos con unos sueldos  muy generosos... Un Gobierno que  premia a la banca con créditos  que pagaremos todos. Tan solo preocupado en tomar medidas para reducir el gasto, recortando prácticamente todas las ayudas básicas a los más desfavorecidos. Cerrando los ojos ante todo esto, no haciendo nada para proteger a un colectivo tan vulnerable y sobre todo en especial como este, que durante casi toda su vida la ha pasado trabajando y luchando, a veces en condiciones muy duras y lamentables, para lograr una vida mejor.    Una vida que había mejorado en muchos aspectos,  en lo  laboral, en muchos  derechos como ciudadanos, en mejoras de la calidad de vida, etc., etc... Todo lo que nos costó ganar casi en cuatro décadas, lo estamos perdiendo en tan sólo unos pocos años.      Y me pregunto: ¿Qué va a ser ahora de todo este colectivo? Sin trabajo, que probablemente ya muchos no encontraremos ¿Cómo subsistiremos hasta llegar a la edad forzosa de jubilación?  ¡Qué paradoja..!. Encima  elevan la edad de jubilación (pensarían que en este país todos somos funcionarios, que ninguna persona mayor antes de jubilarse podía ser despedido).   Mucho me temo, que de seguir las cosas como están, antes, pereceremos  todos intentando subsistir para conseguir alimentos  de la basura (como ya me consta, que muchos se están viendo obligado a ello).   Si uno fuera mal pensado, imaginaria que el propósito o fin del la administración,  no sería otro que el de matar así dos pájaros de un tiro.... Uno, al ahorrarse el subsidio (limosna) que dan en la actualidad, y el otro el de no llegar  nunca a cobrar la jubilación, por fallecer antes de consumar esta.   Pensar lo fácilmente  que prejubilaròn y prejubilaràn  a miles de empleados de la banca, de empresas estatales o vinculadas a este,  como: Renfe, Ensidesa, Telefónica, etc., etc., en unas buenas condiciones económicas, y a una edad muy temprana ( resulta evidente que en este País no todos  somos iguales…).  Quisiera dejar claro, que el fin de esta denuncia, no es la de dar pena, para que por caridad nos den una limosna, no, no. La pretensión, el fin, no es otro, que el que  se reconozca como un derecho amparado por ley para todos los trabajadores que se encuentren en esta situación.   Que en casos de extrema necesidad, como el actual, al haber perdido el puesto de trabajo, con muy pocas perspectivas de recuperarlo, por el hándicap de la edad, del desempleo, y por no tener suficientes recursos en la mayoría de los casos, que garanticen una subsistencia digna.      Por todo lo expuesto,   SOLICITO : que se adopten las medidas oportunas para garantizar que todos los trabajadores mayores de 50 años, sin empleo, parados, con más de un año  de duración, que cotizaron durante más de treinta años a la Seguridad Social, que mediante una medida especial,  se les adelante del fondo aportado para sus pensiones, una paga mensual a modo de prejubilación, cuyo importe se estime en  base a la cotización personal aportada, que garantice como mínimo lo suficiente para poder vivir con DIGNIDAD (nunca esta cantidad inferior al iprem) hasta que se tenga un empleo digno y estable, o se llegue a la edad forzosa de la jubilación.    En Justicia a la verdad, al respeto,  a la dignidad y al derecho de las personas, que pido en,                                              En Santander a 4 de Marzo de 2014.                                                          Fdo: Vicente Gorriz Saiz.

Namibian police, stop assaulting people. End police brutality NOW. #Help_me_find_Michael!

I was a assaulted and kicked by a group of police officers and thus almost lost an eye on Saturday the 11th of August 2018 for taking pics of a police officer by the name Michael who assaulted me before the severe attack with his colleagues on and threatened him of posting his pictures on social media. They confiscated my phone and handcuffed me and thus kicked me in the abdomen and face. They demanded for the pics to be deleted for them to hide their identity. I know one of the Police officers that was present at the scene and she works at Katutura Police station. I opened a cased against Michael for perpetrating violence but the Police officers refused to help me. I explained everything to the station commander and later they agreed that I can open a case. I opened a case. Police officers are now threatening me on Facebook that my docket will be lost coz they will never investigate their colleagues for assaulting people. Some of these are officers that were present when I opened the case. I want the police to investigate this case urgently and help identify Michael, a member of the City police . Michael must apologize and compensate for the damages and misery he caused.  I want the police to investigate and bring Michael to order. I want justice. We are tired of docket getting lost when it's police officers involved but they keep locking up taxi drivers each an everyday struggling to put bread on the table. I want JUSTICE.

DEMAND THE PROTECTION OF VULNERABLE REFUGEES THAT WERE VICTIMS OF RADICAL VIOLENCE

Please sign this petition to protect vulnerable refugees who were attacked and no longer feel safe to stay in Moria Camp, Lesvos, Greece. We are demanding that the vulnerable population are protected, afforded safety and their cases are reviewed individually. We want to protect their rights as refugees, and their basic human rights. We are demanding that a FULL INVESTIGATION into the allegations of extreme violence and any attempt to cover up the heinous crimes committed be conducted. We also demand that the authorities take ALL the necessary measures to prevent these crimes from happening again. We are demanding that the UNHCR protect the basic rights of refugees rather than be used as a tool to deny them their human rights in an attempt to force them to move back to the camp and live with the very attackers that faced no legal justice. We are demanding that EASO protect the victims rights to have their asylum cases heard in a safe environment without fear of intimidation from their attackers.  We are demanding that the Greek government ease pressure on small grassroots organizations like ours that are only trying to protect a vulnerable population and keep them safe. Background: On the morning of May 25th a fight broke out between a small group of Arab & Kurdish men... The conflict quickly escalated and the events that followed can only be described as horrific. Families were attacked in their tents and caravans by masked men wielding metal pipes, knives, and other makeshift weapons. They did not discriminate - old men, women and children were all attacked. On the morning of May 26th, ALL Kurdish (Yazidi, Christian, and other persecuted minorities) families left Moria en masse as they no longer felt safe remaining in the camp after they were threatened to be "finished off" by the very people that attacked them and NO ARRESTS were made. (Rather, arrests were made but the criminals were later released although the victims had identified them) Vulnerable refugees who’ve seen unimaginable events in their home land, were left displaced and homeless once again. (Many of them are recent arrivals) Authorities asked the #HouseOfHumanity to temporarily house 368 souls out of the approximate 1200 that fled. Within 3 days this number had increased to 660. Fast forward to today 24th June, there are 138 of the most vulnerable cases left at the #HouseOfHumanity and because of the direct security threat, they do not feel safe enough to go back to Moria. Pressure is being placed on the team at the #HouseOfHumanity to evict them to force them back to Moria. There are threats on the refugees to have their funding withdrawn and in some cases there have been threats to their asylum cases if they do not return to the camp. Families including women, children and the elderly do not want to put their lives at risk. They have all expressed that they would rather be deported back to their war-torn countries than go back to the camp because the level of violence they saw. They just want to live somewhere where they feel safe, so they can start to heal. Videos from the attack from within the camp can be found on the following post (mildly graphic): https://www.facebook.com/neda.kadri/videos/10156372122599192/ https://www.facebook.com/neda.kadri/videos/10156372118469192/

Injustice with Hindus and Christians in Pakistan

On Wednesday 20th March 2019,  two teenage Hindu sisters were abducted by unknown men as the local Hindu community celebrated the festival of Holi. 14 year old Reena Kumari & 16 year old Raveena Kumari were abducted from the town of Daharki in Pakistan’s southern province of Sindh. Daherki Distt. The local Hindu population of the district took to the streets and blocked the local highway protesting the abduction. The girls family claimed that the that sisters had been abducted by people from the Kohbar and Malik tribes on the eve of Holi. Police refused to help Hindu persons protesting the abduction. Family approached the police to lodge a first information report (FIR) but all in vain. The incident took a strange turn after a video uploaded on social media appeared to show the girls converting to Islam. Their expressions clearly speaks how much they are afraid and oppressed by those religous fanatics. The sisters appear to be visibly distressed in the video and rights activists have claimed that this is another case of forced conversion and abduction, which are becoming increasingly common in the southern region of Sindh. It was not free will and the girls were in fact kidnapped and forcibly converted. It's so devasting to write about forced conversions of minor Hindu daughters of Pakistan. I often think how one can be so cruel and oppressive against people belong to other Religons OR school of thought. This is what happening with Religious minorities, this is how Pakistanis surprise minorities on their religious festives. It's my appeal to everyone who is against oppression and injustice, raise voices for these daughters of Pakistan and Save Humanity. Stop Forced Conversion

Que la tecnología Hyperloop venga a Extremadura y linea Madrid-Extremadura-Lisboa.

Hola a todos. En realidad esta es una reivindicación múltiple. Por una parte apoyamos las reivindicaciones de un tren digno en Extremadura. Ya que no es posible que en el siglo XXI tengamos los trenes, lineas e infraestructuras ferroviarias que en muchos casos son de hasta hace 100 años. Por otra parte reivindicamos, aunque parezca irónico, que por una vez que la alta tecnología y que algunas de las empresas punteras a nivel mundial,Hyperloop Spacex, Hyperloopone y Global TT Hyperloop, elijan a nuestra región como su sede donde crear la tecnología más avanzada en medios de transporte y que además sea también la primera línea que se construya sea internacional y  llegue a Extremadura y que por una vez se cumpla el proverbio de la biblia :"Los últimos serán los primeros " ya que seremos los últimos en pider disfrutar de la alta velocidad cuando en otras regiones llevan hasta 30 años disfrutándolo. Por eso lanzo esta reivindicación también. Pero también porque es necesario tomar posiciones en el mismo ya que ya va a comenzar el ministerio de fomento a hablar y negociar el tema. Y aunque parezca mentira ya hay una propuesta de Hyperloop española que salió finalista en el concurso, y es Madrid -Tanger. Aunque evidentemente eso no significa que se vaya a realizar pero si da una idea de quien puede ser el primero y desde luego no nos oponemos a que se haga. Simplemente pedimos que se realice primero una línea internacional que tiene un buen tramo en alta velocidad y que se podria realizar si se presenta un proyecto, después de terminar el ave Madrid - Badajoz que se comenzará a realizar en pocos años. Además relanzará el AVE portugués y se podría potenciar el ferrocarril de alta velocidad y el de hipervelocidad con velocidades que van de 700-1200 kms por hora y que en las próximas décadas sustituirá al avión en corta y media distancia continental. Ya sé que mucho me dirán que tiene un presupuesto enorme, pero se pueden dar pasos y para que avance y con suerte disfrutarlo antes del 2030 y no esperar al 50 o más, cono nos pasa con el Ave hoy que llevamos 30 años esperando y ni siquiera tenemos un tren digno. Además eso supondría una enorme inversión en la región de i+d+i, generaria empleo tecnologíco y también en energías alternativas y renovables ya que necesita el Hyperloop mucha energía eléctrica y ellos lo sacarán de la energía solar y eolica y nosotros tenemos energía que nos sobra para este megaproyecto. Bueno aquí dejo esta reivindicación que coml veis tiene mucho de real, pero también es reividicativa pir parte doble, o sea tren y transportes dignos ya y como no que por una vez no seamos los últimos en algo de novedad tecnológica, que seamos alguna vez los primeros. Y aunque ests tecnología está al comienzo de su desarrollo, ya está caminando y ya en 2021 habrá en marcha una línea, la Nueva York - Washington por Filadelphia, de unos 400 kms, como Madrid - Badajoz, que tardará 30 minutos el viaje como máximo, a casi 800 kms/h y en Europa hay muchos proyectos serios de Hyperloop en Alemania, prácticamente unir el pais entero, o los países Escandinavos, Helsinki - Estocolmo y otros muchos más. Para quienes quieran saber que es el Hyperloop os dejo enlace de Wikipediahttps://es.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperloop También enlace de la página oficial del grupo de SpaceX y Tesla y Virgin, quienes patrocinan el proyecto, o sea Elon Musk y Richard Brandson https://hyperloop-one.com También artículos explicativos de lineas en construcción https://www.capitalmadrid.com/2017/11/6/47740/hyperloop-de-washington-a-nueva-york-en-29-minutos.html https://m.xataka.com/tag/hyperloop Y videos YouTube : https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7A7GsAPR3J0 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mK85--PpvAY

LAS ASOCIACIONES INTEGRANTES DE LA PLATAFORMA 'LA TORTURA NO ES CULTURA'Solicitamos su intervención para evitar que se siga exponiendo a los menores a la participación en actividades taurinas.

 Queremos transmitir nuestra profunda preocupación por la grave situación a la que muchos niños y niñas están expuestos en relación a la tauromaquia.   La actual crisis por la que pasa la tauromaquia hace que los empresarios taurinos tomen medidas drásticas para salvaguardar lo que ellos denominan “su  tradición”. Este hecho está haciendo mella en muchos menores, que se ven expuestos, sin pretenderlo y sin ser conscientes de ello, a la visualización de actividades taurinas que son un claro reflejo de maltrato hacia los animales y de la inducción y adoctrinamiento del menor en la violencia.  Este proceso se produce a través de la emisión de espacios televisivos con contenidos taurinos, la presencia de menores en espectáculos taurinos, las Escuelas de Tauromaquia, las visitas guiadas de colegios a las plazas de toros, la alteración de las actividades extraescolares en algunos colegios, la participación en eventos puramente infantiles donde se ofrecen "regalos taurinos" a los niños (por ejemplo, las cabalgatas de Reyes) así como cualquier otra actividad taurina en la que se involucra a los menores de forma directa o indirecta.

Complaint 1726/2015/HK Dear Mr Bogacki, I am writing in reply to your petition of 26 October 2015 regarding genocide, mind controlling and satellite harassment. I am sorry to have to inform you that the European Ombudsman cannot deal with your complaint. This is because it concerns an issue that is not within her mandate. The European Ombudsman can investigate only complaints that concern the administrative work of the European Union's institutions and bodies, for instance the European Commission and European Union agencies. If you wish to know more about the relevant rules relating to the European Ombudsman's mandate, please consult the annex to my present letter. Yours sincerely, Peter Bonnor Head of the Process Management & Inquiries Unit 5 European Ombudsman 1 avenue du Président Robert Schuman CS 30403 F - 67001 Strasbourg Cedex T. + 33 (0)3 88 17 23 13 F. + 33 (0)3 88 17 90 62 www.ombudsman.europa.eu ANNEX - RELEVANT LEGAL RULES The Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and the Statute of the European Ombudsman set certain conditions concerning the opening of an inquiry by the Ombudsman. Article 228 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union empowers the European Ombudsman to receive complaints "… concerning instances of maladministration in the activities of the Union institutions, bodies, offices or agencies..." No action by any other authority or person may be the subject of a complaint to the Ombudsman. (Article 2.1 of the European Ombudsman's Statute.)
