BG Group gets green light for £9bn gas work

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp BG Group gets green light for £9bn gas work GAS producer BG Group said yesterday it will become the first company to liquefy gas from coal deposits, after approving a £9.3bn project in Queensland, Australia.BG Group will start work on a processing plant and 540km of underground pipelines immediately. The British firm said it would ship its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) in 2014, and has already made sales agreements with Chile, China, Japan and Singapore.China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) has signed the biggest deal within BG’s biggest ever project, after agreeing in March to take a 10 per cent stake in the first phase of the project and purchase 3.6m tonnes of the gas per year for 20 years. The contract is worth up to $70bn (£43.7bn), reports at the time said. Chief executive Frank Chapman said the Queensland Curtis project would be the world’s first LNG plant to be supplied by coal seam gas “and the foundation… at the centre of a major new Australian export industry”.BG Group said the decision to proceed with the project followed environmental approvals from the Australian and Queensland state governments in October.

On the picket line

On the picket line

first_imgD.C. transit union refuses to work on Nazi-only trainsAfter neo-Nazis decided to commemorate last year’s Unite the Right march in Charlottesville, Va., with an Aug. 12 march this year in Washington, D.C., it was leaked that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority would coddle the Nazis with private cars. But Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689 immediately fought back. Local President Jackie Jeter said in a statement, “More than 80% of Local 689’s membership are people of color, the very people that the Ku Klux Klan and other white nationalist groups have killed, harassed and violated. The union will not play a role in their special accommodation.” (Washington Post, Aug. 3) The statement went viral, and WAMATA responded Aug. 4 that it was canceling the special train.But that’s not what happened Aug. 12 between approximately 1:20 and 1:40 p.m. Metro’s management, in conjunction with the police, opened the north entrance of the Vienna station to transport the Unite the Right fascists. The union immediately called out WAMATA for lying to riders and the public: “DC, now you see who was telling the truth about the racist marchers being escorted onto Metro and who lied,” ATU Local 689 tweeted. “[Metro General Manager Paul] Wiedefeld lied to riders and public when the truth was more convenient.” (The Hill, Aug. 12)Workers World expresses solidarity with ATU Local 689 in denouncing this treachery and cheers the local’s resistance.JetBlue pilots sign first contractJetBlue Airways Corp.’s 3,037 pilots approved the first labor contract in the carrier’s history by 74 percent of those voting, announced the Air Line Pilots Association on July 27. The agreement, which took more than three years of negotiations, “provides significant pay increases, improvements to retirement and enhanced working conditions,” said ALPA President Tim Canoll. This is JetBlue’s first labor agreement since its founding in 1998.Meanwhile, the company’s flight attendants voted this spring to join the Transport Workers Union, after two previous attempts failed. “This … is yet another example of the tide turning in America as workers continue to lock arms and fight back to defend their livelihoods,” said TWU President John Samuelsen in an April 17 statement. The inflight members’ bargaining team met June 28 to discuss upcoming contract negotiations, which include job security, a grievance procedure, improved wages and benefits, and “a seat at the table in case of possible merger or acquisition.” (TWU.org, June 28)Window washers protest low pay and benefits, July 18.Chicago window washers win historic raiseAbout 260 Chicago window washers — who struck for over a month after their contract expired June 30 — won a historic 27 percent wage hike! This raises the pay that a seasoned window washer earns from $21 an hour to $26 over the life of the new five-year contract. An essential demand for these high-risk workers was also met: their life insurance was doubled from $50,000 to $100,000. (Chicago Sun Times, July 27) The union overwhelmingly ratified the contract. Washer Cruz Guzman cheered, “We put our livelihood on the line and won the biggest wage increase for Chicago window washers in Local 1 history.”The bosses at Corporate Cleaning and Service 1, two of the six companies that employ the washers in the city’s downtown buildings, tried to beat the mainly Latinx workers down. The companies threatened that they’d go bankrupt, though they enjoy massive tax breaks. But the workers, represented by Service Employees International Local 1, fought back. They dressed up like superheroes and stopped traffic to bring attention to their low wages. (WW, July 10)Disneyland theme park workers win $15 an hour by 2019The 9,700 workers at Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park and Downtown Disney, represented by four labor unions in the Master Services Council, ratified a new contract on July 26. (For background, see Workers World article, May 28.) Disneyland Resort officials agreed to a minimum wage rate increase of 40 percent within two years of the agreement. This will put cast members at $15 per hour by 2019, which will be one of the highest minimum wages in the country and three years ahead of the state’s minimum wage standard.A full-time cast member who currently earns $11 an hour would earn an additional $8,000 per year. Minimum rates for hourly cast members will increase by 20 percent immediately from the current minimum rate of $11 to a new minimum rate of $13.25. Even though Disneyland Resort portrays this precedent-setting agreement as recognizing the value of its cast members, it took a well-organized union fightback campaign of many months to end poverty wages.

Prison court sentences blogger to 20 years, poet to two years

first_imgNews May 31, 2021 Find out more News Organisation MyanmarAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association are appalled by the combined sentence of 20 years and six months in prison that a special court in Insein prison passed today on a young blogger, Nay Phone Latt. A poet, Saw Wai, was sentenced to two years in prison for a poem containing a coded criticism of Gen. Than She, the head of the military junta.”The authorities have imposed an extraordinarily severe punishment on Nay Phone Latt just for using the Internet,” the two organisations said. “This shocking sentence is meant to terrify those who go online in an attempt to elude the dictatorship’s ubiquitous control of news and information, and we call for his immediate release. Saw Wai, for his part, is being made to pay for his impertinence and courage as a committed poet.”The two organisations added: “There is an urgent need now for bloggers all over the world to demonstrate their solidarity with Nay Phone Latt by posing his photo on their blogs and by writing to Burmese embassies worldwide to request his release. Similarly, we call on poets to defend their fellow-poet, Saw Wai, who has been jailed just because of one poem.”The total sentence of 20 years and six months imposed on Nay Phone Latt by judge Daw Soe consisted of two years for violating article 505 (b) of the Criminal Code (which punishes defamation of the state), three years and six months for violating article 32 (b) of the Video Act and 15 years for violating article 33 (a) of the Electronic Act.Nay Phone Latt’s mother, who was not allowed to attend the trial inside the prison, said: “I was expecting him to get 10 or 12 years in prison at the most. I never imagined he would get this much. The authorities have been excessively cruel with him.” The blogger’s lawyer was himself jailed for criticising the special court’s procedures.It was the same judge who imposed the two-year sentence on Saw Wai, a romantic poet who was arrested by the military on 22 January, the day after a Valentine’s Day poem by him was published in the popular weekly Achit Journal (Love Journal). Read vertically, the first words of each line formed the phrase: APower crazy Senior General Than Shwe. Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar The owner of two Rangoon Internet cafés, Nay Phone Latt, aged 28, was arrested in Rangoon on 29 January in possession of a video that is banned by the military government. He also kept a blog (http://www.nayphonelatt.net/) in which he wrote about the difficulty that young Burmese like himself have had in expressing themselves since the September 2007 protests. He was arrested with several National League for Democracy activists, who were released a few hours later.

It is hell for local journalists and it is getting more and more difficult for foreign journalists, who should take extreme care when they are inside the country and prepare their visits well in advance.”The two photographers, Jeroens Oerlemans of the Netherlands and John Cantlie of the UK, were captured on 19 July and were held in a foreign jihadi camp “where there were no Syrians.” Their abductors suspected them of being CIA agents and were thinking of holding them for ransom.At one point the two journalists tried to escape and were shot and injured, Oerlemans in the groin and Cantlie in the arm. Oerlemans said: “The shots came thick and fast, the hunt was on (…) ten minutes later, we were lying in our own blood.” They were finally released when the rebel Free Syrian Army intervened and escorted them back to the Turkish border.Reporters Without Borders points out that it can arrange insurance for journalists who visit war zones where they could be threatened, detained or kidnapped, and it has a hotline they can all in any kind of emergency (+ 33 1 4777-7414).Meanwhile, Reporters Without Borders is concerned for the health of the detained blogger Hussein Ghreir and calls for his release. Ghreir, who began a hunger strike on 10 July in protest against his continuing detention, has high blood pressure and heart problems.He was arrested along with 15 other activists during a 16 February raid on the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM). Four other SCM activists – Hani Zetani, Mansour Al-Omari, Abdel Rahman Hamada and Mazen Darwish – are also still held.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the immediate and unconditional release of all professional and citizen journalists detained in Syria. last_img read more
