After Cara Wald leaves her position, Bethel is looking for someone to fill a role focused on Title IX enforcement and support for victims of sexual assault.

By Soraya Keizer

Since its passage as part of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title IX has protected individuals from discrimination on the basis of sex for education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance.

The Civil Rights Act states that “No person in the United States shall, because of sex, be excluded from participation in, denied benefits, or subjected to discrimination in connection with any program or service.” ‘an educational activity receiving federal financial assistance’.

Title IX obligations encompass many different aspects of the education system, including recruitment, admissions, counseling, financial aid, and athletics. Much of the law deals with sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence.

Bethel University remains consistent with Title IX and, as stated on Bethel’s website, is “committed to maintaining a Christ-centered community free from discrimination, including sexual harassment in all its forms.”

All members of the Bethel community are expected to comply with Bethel policies regarding sexual misconduct and sexual harassment. If this does not occur, community members may report instances of sexual misconduct or sexual harassment to Bethel’s Title IX Compliance Coordinator/Officer. Employees are required to report cases unless they are Confidential Contacts. These people include employees in Counseling Services, the Office of Christian Training and Church Relations, and Health Services.

Cara Wald, who previously served as Title IX Coordinator/Compliance Officer as well as Vice President of People and Culture, announced her resignation on October 15, 2021, with her last official day being November 19, 2021. Since On November 17, 2021, Dean of Student Success and Retention for the College of Adult and Career Studies, Ryan Gunderson served as Acting Title IX Coordinator. He has taken on Title IX coordinator responsibilities in addition to his position in Bethel’s CAPS program and will continue to do so until someone new is hired.

The Title IX Coordinator position was posted on Bethel’s job postings in early February and was updated on February 11th.

Vice President of Finance Amy Blaz was in charge of the hiring process. However, President Ross Allen announced on February 10 that Blaz would step down from his position. Blaz expects another cabinet member to become the head of the Title IX coordinator hiring process in the coming weeks.

Asked about the position, the hiring process and the need for an interim coordinator, Blaz said, “At Bethel, we are committed to maintaining a Christ-centered community free from sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and harassment. sexual violence. Our Title IX Non-Discrimination Policy serves to protect students and employees from discrimination based on gender. The Title IX Coordinator position specifically manages this process for us and is also required by Title IX legislation. »

Gunderson did not respond to inquiries from Clarion regarding these matters.

Blaz hopes the position will be filled by mid-March. Until then, Gunderson remains the point of contact for all matters relating to sexual harassment or Title IX and its policies.

LSU NAACP, Black Law Students Association Hosts Book Drive for Underprivileged Children in Baton Rouge | News https://ivideosgratis.org/lsu-naacp-black-law-students-association-hosts-book-drive-for-underprivileged-children-in-baton-rouge-news/ Fri, 04 Mar 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://ivideosgratis.org/lsu-naacp-black-law-students-association-hosts-book-drive-for-underprivileged-children-in-baton-rouge-news/ LSU NAACP and the Black Law Students Association gave back to Baton Rouge youth with a book drive Feb. 15-28.

LSU NAACP and the Black Law Students Association gave back to Baton Rouge youth with a book drive Feb. 15-28.

The donations were distributed to the Baton Rouge Detention Center and the Baton Rouge Advocacy Center for Children and Youth.

LSU NAACP Juvenile Justice Chairman Jordan Williams, an LSU psychology junior, wanted to start a donation campaign for children in juvenile detention centers.

Tiger Prison Project has held a prison book drive in previous years. The NAACP took inspiration from the Tiger Prison Project and started a book drive during Black History Month.

Williams, who got the job of president of juvenile justice this semester, was exposed to various opportunities within the NAACP to help underfunded people in the Baton Rouge community. She wanted collecting books to give children a physical object they can keep and cherish over the years.

“I experienced the joy of receiving a new book and falling in love with it. I believe every child should experience this,” Williams said.

The Baton Rouge Child Advocacy Center is a resource where children who have been abused or witnessed malicious acts can be helped. Williams believes donating books to the advocacy center can allow children to calm their emotions and talk openly to counselors at the advocacy center.

“Books can help these kids with whatever they’re going through,” Williams said. “These gifts could help a child who doesn’t normally open up to others find a safe space to share their past experiences.”

Williams created a barcode on each of the donation boxes for donors to scan. A website pops up that gives facts and statistics about youth in the Baton Rouge community. The barcode also provides a link to dig deeper into the raw statistics of what children face in detention centres.

One of the facts listed on the website is as follows: YesYoung people who are detained or incarcerated can be subject to overcrowding, physical and sexual violence, trauma, suicide and even death.

LSU NAACP Education Committee Chair Justin Martin, a junior in African and American studies, is working to ensure that every child in Baton Rouge has the opportunity to receive a better education. Martin notices the stigma that accompanies detention centers and advocates for minors to have access to learning materials.

“One of the things that makes this book drive really special is getting rid of people’s negative mindset about children in detention centers,” Martin said. “Most think these underprivileged children don’t need the educational items a child needs on a regular basis, but they do.”

He believes that children in detention centers need a chance to find an interest that increases their learning and grows from their past mistakes.

“Books are like a portable world, you can take them wherever you go,” Martin said. “For those children who are physically in the detention center, these books will have a positive outlet to engage with during their difficult situations.”

Angel Puder, a junior majoring in political science and African and African American studies, is the vice president of the LSU NAACP. She helped the NAACP plan this campaign and believes the books will have a positive influence on children.

“These books should help them have a space to escape from their daily challenges. That’s what I love about reading,” Puder said. “You can step into a different world and live in the characters’ lives if you don’t like the way your life is a moment.”

Puder wants donors to realize that the smallest donation of a book can have a positive impact on recipients.

“If you had a certain book that stood out to you as a child and you donate it, the child can have the same experience as you,” Puder said. “The book can help them as it did for you.”

A sex offender has been jailed for 15 years after turning the lives of two boys into what one called a “living hell”.

Judge Russell Collins, who sentenced the man in Napier District Court on Wednesday, said the abuse was “gross and serious”.

The man had used amyl nitrate to disable his victims and abuse them.

He decided that the man would not be eligible for parole for seven and a half years.

The victims, now adults, were moved when they appeared in court to provide victim impact statements.

The older victim told the court of flashbacks, nightmares and lingering anxiety that kept him from eating in restaurants.

“I feel judged for being a victim of sexual abuse and I don’t know who knows, so it makes me anxious.”

He said that at one point the man showed him a gun in a closet and “I fully believed he would use it”.

The young victim was too emotional to read her statement which was read out in court by a supporter.

The charges, some of which are representative, spanned 10 years.

“I don’t forgive him for what he did with my life and I hope never to see him again,” said the young victim.

The man, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, appeared to be sentenced on 16 counts: nine for sexual assault, four for sexual behavior with a child and three for bewilderment.

The court heard that the man would incapacitate his victims with amyl nitrate.

Judge Collins acknowledged the strength of character it took for the victims to make their statements.

“I admire their courage and in every way they come across as extremely fine young men,” Judge said.

The man, who appeared via video link from Hawke’s Bay Regional Jail, was found guilty by jury trial last year.

Collins said the man continued to deny his offence, which was his right, but he said “every juror was sure he [the victims] were telling the truth”.

He said it was a sustained offense involving multiple acts of sexual violence, with planned premeditation, threats of violence and high degree breach of trust.

The victims, he said, were extremely vulnerable and suffered severe harm.

Robert Marshall, founder of I Am Man Inc., is not only an advocate for male sexual assault victims, but also a survivor himself. Marshall spoke with The Root about how he used his story to empower other survivors to seek wellness and how his next delivered, Echoes, explores more intimately the stories of survivors and ways to overcome the effects of trauma.

Marshall, speaker, male empowerment coach, had introduced himself to his family and community to share his experience. Contrary to the negativity he expected, he was overwhelmed by the response from men from all walks of life who had shared his trauma.

The Root found Marshall’s experience with sexual abuse devastating. That it started so early in his childhood made us wonder, how has it affected him throughout his years?

“I’ve had nine sex offenders in my life. I started getting sexually treated from the age of four until I was almost 19 years old. For a long time, I thought it was my fault. I thought something was wrong with me. It never really crossed my mind that I never had the chance to choose who I wanted to be what I wanted to be. He was chosen for me.

I started sharing my story of sexual abuse and was very nervous at first, but I really felt like I had to be totally honest. I didn’t think it would take well. When I started sharing, I started getting this overwhelming response from men from all walks of life. Everyone from different races, different cultures, sexual orientation, it was just, that, it was just starting to come out of the floodgates,” Marshall said.

We asked Marshall why he was hesitant at first to share his story publicly and why other survivors might be reluctant to talk about their experiences.

“I didn’t feel like it was going to be okay. I didn’t feel it suited the religious community. I didn’t feel like it would fit in an urban hip-hop community because it doesn’t speak to toxic unrealistic and unhealthy definitions of masculinity and manliness.

I was afraid, you know, of embarrassing my wife and her family. I was also scared of what my kids would encounter, because once I posted here, it is what it is. You can’t decide who does what with this information and how they can return it, or what would be said. I wanted to protect my family and was really encouraged by my wife. She was my biggest fan. She was the one in the corner saying, you know, ‘You have to do this,'” Marshall said.

Along with her journey to sharing her story, Marshall noted that most people in communities of color tend not to talk about their traumas in part because it’s hard to get someone convicted of sexual assault. Men are especially reluctant to speak up or even tell someone about their experience because of shame, Marshall found.

“Not everyone has been sexually abused by a man. Some of them have been abused by babysitters or cousins, family friends, girlfriends, and it has touched them. men are afraid to speak out because they are afraid of being seen as gay,” Marshall said.

This fear of talking is what made him start I am an Inc man. As the #MeToo Movement spotlighting resources that female victims of sexual assault can use, Marshall noticed that male survivors had almost nowhere to turn.

I Am Man Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a safe space for male survivors of sexual assault by advocating, educating and empowering men to take back the power to choose who they want to be, according to the echoes Press release. Marshall’s first event for male survivors of sexual assault drew 92 men. Marshall said he then realized there was a real problem.

We wanted Marshall to describe his work with the organization; what they are doing to support survivors and the demographics of men who seek support from I Am Man Inc.

“My specific role and what we do, because we are not therapists, is to inspire, encourage and empower men to begin their journey to wholeness. When a man experiences sexual trauma, uh, scientifically, it changes them. It literally changes different elements of the person in general. What we’re doing is we’re creating safe spaces for them to give them the opportunity to start realizing, “Hey, that’s what I’ve been through. Most men don’t say anything because they don’t realize what they’ve been through is sexual abuse or sexual trauma.

We really do in-depth work through programs or resources through books and programs, helping them dig deeper into this. We can provide frameworks, forums, conversations to empower men to choose who they want to be and not live by unhealthy toxic definitions [of masculinity] that don’t serve them,” Marshall said.

Statistics found 1 of 6 men have been sexually assaulted. About 14% of these men had experienced sexual assault before the age of 18, the US Centers for Disease Control reported.

Through outreach and investigations, Marshall found that most of the survivors he met were heterosexual black men between the ages of 40 and 60. He also noted that men are less likely to report their incidents to the police, but men of color even more so because of the ongoing battle. against police brutality and mass incarceration. Moreover, their experiences translate into who they are in relationships.

“There are a lot of men who have trust issues, who have relationship issues and they have confided that often they have these issues because they have been sexually abused and have never told anyone about it. Or they have commitment issues because they are scared Even performing certain sexual acts with their partners they have a problem with that because they have been through sexual abuse or a traumatic sexual experience and never have anything said,” Marshall said.

The Root asked Marshall how he documented the stories of survivors to organize the echoes project and her plans after the book’s release to continue the effort to connect survivors to resources.

Marshall said his next book, echoesaims to give hope to men who still feel trapped by their current or past abuse, via press release. echoes is also an anthology project to humanize the experiences of male survivors and provide a framework to better understand the layers of sexual violence.

“As I started to write my story, I realized it would be very selfish of me to just include my story as I watched a sea of ​​black men, white men, Hispanic men , straight Asian men and trans men – everyone who had been through this they had been through. So what I did was I opened it up and said I wanted to use this opportunity, to create a platform where we can truly shed light on the effects of trauma and its impact on men.

This is where Echoes was born. We’ve had retirement weekends, or currently, Echoes is set to release on April 25th. We are also working on a documentary to be released before the end of the year that will highlight the lived experiences of male survivors of sexual trauma from all walks of life.

I can’t even tell you how many men call me, privately say, “It happened to me, but I can’t say anything.” They literally carry that to their graves, so the shame, the pain, the rejection, all of that builds up inside of them and eats them alive,” Marshall said.

Following the book’s release, Marshall is looking to host a March 11 event called the Survivor Circle in his hometown of Chicago, to celebrate survivors of sexual assault and those who have had the courage to share their stories in echoes.

Marshall’s message for survivors is to remember that what happened to them was not their fault, but what they can control is how they left their experience perform them.

“It is your responsibility to manage your integrity, your health. To do this, you sometimes have to accept excuses that you will never get. You’ll have to find the courage to start the journey to face the things that have bullied you in silence,” Marshall said. “We have to put aside the negative things that we face internally so that we can live and be free. Most men just exist. I believe that every man deserves the right to live.

Bridget Perrier talks about her experiences in the sex trade – as a young Indigenous girl – at the MMIWG2S+ event in Sault Ste. Married

A survivor of sexual exploitation shared her story during Sault Ste. Monday, the annual Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit event of Mary.

This year’s virtual event featured Bridget Perrier, an Indigenous woman who has dedicated her life to educating the public about sexual exploitation and supporting those caught in the cycle of prostitution.

“Everyone says you choose prostitution, and I don’t believe it. I believe prostitution chooses you based on the trauma of the child, and I was a perfect candidate for prostitution,” she told attendees during her virtual presentation.

Perrier was adopted before being sexually abused by a friend of her adoptive family at the age of eight, only to be returned to children’s aid at the age of 11 after exhibiting behavioral problems in his adopted home.

She was sent to a group home for girls when she was 12, where she was groomed for the sex trade within three or four months by girls in the home who were older than her.

“One of the girls already had experience in the sex trade. She introduced me to an old man, and his thing was that he liked the new girl experience,” she recalled. “So we all manually stimulated it and the more you laughed, the more money was left under the Kleenex box – and it opened.

“Wow, I can make $400 and I really don’t have to do anything.”

Perrier was then recruited by a madam who owned brothels in Halifax and Thunder Bay, where she served people when she was between 12 and 14 years old.

“Some of the women who worked at the brothel didn’t want to work with me because they had daughters my age,” she said.

It wasn’t long, Perrier says, before a pimp found her at a Toronto airport as she was walking to catch a connecting flight.

The pimp would beat Perrier and other women he had recruited, literally marking the corner where they were supposed to work with an “X”.

“He was handsome, he was so handsome. He showed me attention, and I had no idea he was one of the biggest child pimps, child pimps that Canada had” , she said.

Perrier would eventually be rescued by her mother and brought back to Thunder Bay.

“The most damage done to me in my life has been done by the men who bought me,” she said.

Perrier would eventually find healing in the Aboriginal community of Toronto, going to George Brown College and graduating from the school’s community service program.

In 2007, she co-founded Sex Trade 101, a survivor-led organization that raises awareness about prostitution and trafficking and offers support to those still involved in prostitution.

Perrier has spoken several times before the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women and advocated for the passage of Bill C-36, the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Actin addition to other federal laws dealing with sexual exploitation.

The mother of five is now speaking out about the harms Indigenous women and women of color face in the sex trade, while dispelling myths around sex work – including sex work as a choice for women .

“Laws don’t kill women, the street doesn’t kill women. It is the men who kill the women. We have to look at that,” she said.

According to a 2020 report by the Native Women’s Association of Canada, Indigenous women are more than twice as likely to report having been victims of physical and sexual violence as Indigenous men, and are three times more likely to report having been victims of domestic violence as non-Aboriginal women.

DORSET Police have reaffirmed their commitment to cracking down on sexual violence in the county.

A series of initiatives have been put in place by the police to tackle the increase in reports of sexual offences, including the commissioning of an independent report on rape and serious sexual offences.

Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner David Sidwick said: “Make no mistake about it, tackling sexual offences, rape, domestic violence, harassment and VAWG are all priority areas and I will work tirelessly alongside the Chief Constable to reduce sex crimes and make Dorset the safest county.

Dorset Police recorded 1,235 incidents of sex offenses in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole in the 12 months to September, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Here are some of the Dorset Police initiatives to help reduce sex crime in Dorset:

Thinking about strength:

The CCP met with sexual violence charities to hear first-hand from victims and gain insight into the organizations that help them.

Alongside PCCs Wiltshire and Hampshire, Mr Sidwick has commissioned an Independent Report on Rape and Serious Sexual Offenses (RASSO) – the outcome of which has yet to be published.

Specially trained social workers and lawyers:

An Independent Criminal Harassment Advocacy Worker has been funded to ensure that victims of this type of crime are supported.

Dorset Police have increased their numbers of vulnerability lawyers, so further legal measures can be put in place to prevent domestic abuse, sexual offenses and harassment.

Protective orders:

A number of ordinances, including sexual harm prevention orders, have been put in place across the county, some lasting up to 10 years.

Alongside this, Dorset Police are carrying out active operations to identify and deter sex offenders, including Operation Vigilant, in Weymouth and Bournemouth, to reduce the risk to vulnerable people on night outs.

Beverage dosage:

Over 1,000 drink doping test kits have been purchased by Dorset Police.

Nearly 14,000 “stop-tops” and “bottle-top spikes”, to prevent drinks from being spiked.

£600,000 funding:

Part of the funding was allocated for CCTV and intervention workshops to help raise awareness, change societal attitudes and empower women and girls to feel safer.

And £200,000 has been dedicated to tackling domestic abuse – the funding has gone to the Up2U family practice model.

“The above list is just a snapshot of the work in progress,” Mr. Sidwick said.

“Only last week I was able to pose a question to Rachel Maclean, Minister for Protection at the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners summit. I challenged the government on introducing a harassment registry for those who focus on sequential victims.

“I pledge to continue to ask the tough questions and increasingly call on our government to support those who have been victims of sex crime.”

(Anyone who has been sexually assaulted, whether recently or in the past, is encouraged to contact Dorset Police online from www.dorset.police.uk/do-it-online or by telephone 101. In an emergency always call 999. Not everyone will want to involve the police at first, but if they do please use the services provided anonymously by The Shores on 0800 970 9954 or www.the-shores.org.uk.)

The University hired its first sexual violence and education coordinator, Dr. Elliot Ruggles, on January 13, eight months after students demanded a change in UVM’s handling of sexual violence.

Ruggles begins his role at the University on February 22 under the supervision of Dean of Students David Nestor, Nestor said. Ruggles will have an office at Nicholson House where all UVM students and affiliates will go.

“It is an honor to work directly with survivors […] and I carry all of their stories with me when I think about the prevention aspect of the role,” Ruggles said. “I’m excited to work and build relationships with students who are truly passionate about it.”

Ruggles will conduct a needs-based assessment to determine what students feel are the knowledge gaps in their experiences when they begin their new position at UVM, they said.

“Unfortunately, across the United States we have varying degrees of comprehensive sex education,” he said. “I’m really looking forward to putting some of this comprehensive sex ed training that I have into practice.”

Ruggles specializes in sex therapy, addiction and trauma recovery, culturally competent LGBTQ+ services, comprehensive sex education, and the prevention and promotion of sexual, gender-based and relationship violence, according to their LinkedIn profile.

Ruggles identifies as trans, queer and polyamorous and practices ethical non-monogamy, according to a Dec. 1 presentation to the UVM community.

Ruggles comes from a position at Brown University, where they oversaw a variety of peer education programs, according to the presentation.

Prior to working at Brown, Ruggles served as director of the Sexuality and Resource Center for SUNY Oneonta in New York, according to the presentation.

“It really is a dream job for me to have a little bit of creative license,” Ruggles said. “I’m really excited to get to work and get to know you all there.”

The search committee included Joe Russell, assistant dean of students for retention; senior Maddie Henson, SGA Senator; Kelly Thorne, sports psychologist and counseling coordinator at UVM; Genell Mikkalson, nurse midwife and assistant clinical professor at UVM; and Elise Prehoda, second-year medical student.

Prehoda is on the committee because numerous reports of sexual misconduct have implicated the College of Medicine and students have drawn attention to its shortcomings in medical education regarding sexual assault, she said.

“My biggest core values ​​are honesty, communication, and respect, and those are the three things every time I interview someone that I put first,” Prehoda said. “Elliot’s enthusiasm oozes attention.”

Nestor and Erica Caloiero, vice-rector for student affairs, served as hiring managers for the process. They made the final decision as to who was hired, based on the committee’s recommendations.

“The search committee selected, interviewed and ensured that a wide range of stakeholders were engaged in the interview process,” Caloiero said.

UVM first listed the position on August 3, Caloiero said in a February 3 email. Initially, 37 people applied, but within three or four months the committee narrowed the pool of applicants down to three finalists, Henson said.

The committee conducted one-hour interviews with each of the three finalists.

The committee looked for candidates willing to break standards and exceed minimum expectations and job objectives, Henson said. She wanted the role to be filled by someone who wasn’t afraid to push the status quo.

“I really hope [Ruggles’ position] will foster new life and move the dialogue towards sex-positive, consent work, restorative justice, holding perpetrators accountable, and ensuring survivors are heard,” Henson said.

Henson said she and other committee members hope the position will involve sexual assault prevention work with a focus on helping BIPOC and LGBTQ+ people.

“[The University] cannot absolve themselves now of any harm they have done, but they should continue to hear student demands, student voices, and continue the conversation,” Henson said. “The conversation doesn’t end with hiring Ruggles.”

Almost one in five people said they had been sexually assaulted, but more than half did not seek help afterward, with 46% fearing they would not be believed.

Kate Davies, commissioning director for sexual assault services at the NHS, said: “Sexual assault or domestic violence can happen to anyone. Unfortunately, thousands of people don’t know where to turn to get the help they need. Today the NHS makes it clear that you can come to us.

“We provide confidential emotional, medical or practical support at our Sexual Assault Referral Centres, a dedicated safe space for anyone who needs it.

“We know it can take a long time to pick up the phone and take that first step – we’re here any time of the day or night, and we’ll support you through the process.”

Today, the first day of Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week, the NHS will announce the creation of two officers to oversee sexual and domestic abuse.

Despite official figures showing domestic violence and sexual assault have increased during the pandemic, NHS England said the number of people receiving help from Sarcs had halved after the first lockdown compared to 2019.

The centers have forensic examination facilities, should anyone wish to report an assault to the police. They can also arrange an informal chat with a specially trained police officer.

Laura Currer, chair of NHS England’s National Sexual Abuse and Assault Services Lived Experience Group, was 28 when she was doped [injected with drugs] on a night out with friends in Newcastle in 2015 and sexually assaulted.

She said: ‘I know from experience how difficult it can be to ask for help, but I will never forget the kind, caring and compassionate staff at Sarcs who were there to hold my hand during a of the worst times of my life.

“They walked me through the whole process and gave me the space and autonomy over my body that my abusers had taken away from me. I will be eternally grateful.

Camilla has made the issue of sexual and domestic abuse against women a cornerstone of her public work since her early days as a member of the royal family.

She even designed an initiative to provide rape victims with free toiletry bags to use after invasive forensic examinations.

Writing in Women’s Institute magazine in November, Camilla made an impassioned call for ‘retirement from domestic violence forever’ and pointed out that two women are killed every week by a current or former partner in England and Wales.

The campaign was also backed by former Prime Minister Theresa May, who said: “It’s important that victims of sexual assault and abuse know the NHS is there for them.”

A strip club has been allowed to invite people to their premises during the Cheltenham Festival and operate a courtesy vehicle to transport them to their venue.

Last year Red Apple Associates Ltd won permission from Cheltenham Borough Council to renew their premises license for the 2 Pigs venue in Church Street.

The renewal application renewed the alternative club’s license to open as a sex entertainment venue during Cheltenham Festival week in 2022.

And the authorized opening dates and times are 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. from March 15 to 18 and 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. on March 14 and 19.

The applicant has now also been permitted to distribute leaflets to people during the hours of the license’s operation, provided that no solicitation takes place of anyone who appears to be under the age of 25.

The changes also allow them to operate a courtesy vehicle to transport customers to and from the site at all times.

They can only hand out leaflets to those who want one, no music will be played from or in the vehicle and there will be no leafleting in Cheltenham Minster grounds, other cemeteries, at the outside schools or libraries before 6 p.m.

The applicant must also pick up the waste generated by the leaflets within 50 meters of each place from which they are distributed.

Initial plans have faced strong opposition from some local residents and religious leaders who fear it will lead to increased sexual violence against women.

And the rector of Cheltenham Minster, Richard Coombs, said the latest proposals run counter to the standard terms included in the council’s policy on sex entertainment venues adopted last year.

The applicant’s lawyer stated that the business would not be viable if it were not allowed to distribute leaflets.

“All of this would mean that artists would seek to go elsewhere and then operate in unlicensed venues,” he told the licensing subcommittee on Jan. 18.

“It’s not a brothel, it’s a licensed establishment that has been in operation for many years and has never had any problems.”

The committee voted to approve the license amendment with conditions by four votes to one.

Current meeting of the Green Party caucus

And it begins …

Green Party discontent: MPs march, ex-MPs criticize leadership

Former senior officials accused the Greens of rejecting the fundamentals as party discontent surfaces over its government cooperation deal.

Former MPs Sue Bradford and Catherine Delahunty say the deal makes no sense and the party’s position in government amounts to a failure of leadership.

Delahunty criticized his former colleagues for failing to point the finger at an “unnatural alliance between banks and government” that represented record bank profits, inflation in house prices and growing inequality.

Former co-leader and current Greenpeace New Zealand chief Russel Norman also called Green Minister James Shaw’s position “just not credible”.

RNZ can reveal that a number of activists have recently withdrawn from the party, including former members of the executive and political wing.

They accuse Co-Leader Shaw of having an autocratic style and complain that the party executive does not hold the caucus and leaders to account for the political decisions of the government.

The co-leaders of the Greens rejected the criticism, maintaining the Democratic Party and making gradual changes of government.

The party signed the agreement on October 31, 2020.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told media the deal was aimed at building consensus and stability, but stressed her party has the right to rule alone in parliament. Labor won over 50 percent of the vote.

Shaw remained Minister of Climate Change and Associate Minister of Environment (Biodiversity), while fellow co-leader Marama Davidson became Minister of Family and Sexual Violence Prevention and Associate Minister of Housing (SDF).

The terms of the agreement tied the two men to collective ministerial responsibility, but allowed the Greens to disagree and criticize the government on matters outside these ministries.

Shaw and Davidson were excluded from cabinet and tax policy issues.

Former politician and executive member Megan Brady-Clark – a delegate who voted to block the deal – said the specially convened meeting on the deal was carefully managed.

Delegates met on Zoom in a virtual conference on October 31, 2020 at 4 p.m. and were encouraged to reach a “consensus” around the document. They were given access to copies of the proposed deal at 4:30 p.m. at the same time as it was made public.

Brady-Clark said he left little to no time for wider dissemination and debate within their branches.

A government press conference was also scheduled the same evening to announce the deal, putting additional pressure on delegates to approve it.

it’s been 14 months since the Greens have surrendered their mana for vacant office trinkets in a government in which they have no power and what do they have to show for this strategic blunder?

Bullshit awakened.

I warned the Greens in 2020 that unless they come in force and demand transformative change and threaten a civil war with Labor, they will get a soft FA, and they have succeeded in get even less than that!

Greta is right, the real power is to protest outside the conference, not to sell yourself inside the conference!

The green strategy team is made up of checkers players trying to play chess.

Marama and James’ negotiating tactic was to get on their knees and beg!

You don’t get anything by begging, and they get nothing …

No political gain, just a few vacant office trinkets.

The Greens are repeatedly being tricked by Labor in a never-ending cycle of abuse that started with Helen Clark and you feel like someone should step in and step in now.

Labor gets the inoculation and political cover-up they want and the Greens get nothing.

Jacinda’s lukewarm incrementalism will not be contested by the Greens, it will be supported by them.

As the events of the climate crisis explode over the next 2 years, welfare reform goes nowhere, housing stagnates, poverty spreads, the Greens will sit alongside Labor like a parasitic twin unable to think for himself, let alone change things.

It quickly becomes clear that Labor and Greens are not the political vehicle for transformative change. With Labor too focused on preventing the Covid explosion in New Zealand and the Greens now gagged, no forward-looking vision on how to turn things around will be articulated.

This is a government backed by Labor + Greens, giving them 75 seats in a 120 seat Parliament and yet they CANNOT STILL be transformative?

All the Greens have gained for their hollow ministries is collusion with mediocrity and a few identity political victories.

The Greens don’t know if they are Arthur or Martha and if they did they would need a 7 month hui to discuss the use of pronouns.

Watch Climate Strike For Students Auckland get canceled last year due to heteronormative cis men’s privilege sums up the Greens perfectly. A middle-class asthetic for the virtue of social justice is linked to an awakened dogma that believes that all white people are racists, all male rapists, and anyone who supports free speech is a Nazi.

Greens are as alienating as a spin-off dinner party where everyone argues over who hates white men the most.

Greens are perfect for nipple free gatherings with trans cyclist activists allies of blogging moms, not so good on neoliberal economic hegemony.

They spent a year reaping the handy rewards of identity politics while doing nothing meaningful about poverty, homelessness or climate change.

The awakened NZ Greens have become so attached to the power public health has given them over Covid that they can’t fathom losing all that virtue signaling credit, they yearn for a perpetual level 5 and seem sad that no actual genocide has happened.

Despite my contempt for what the Greens have transferred to, I will probably still vote for them in 2023 but will skip the second there is a real alternative.

Their only hope is Chloe.

Chloe is a unique talent. She speaks with the energy of the new generation of voters in a language that empowers and challenges. She is an incredible communicator and if she had the leadership she could dominate the political debate.

What could be more radical than the youngest political leader in New Zealand history?

Chloe as a leader is a 15% party. Imagine Jacinda as Prime Minister with Chloe as Deputy.

To be politically relevant, the Greens must be necessary for the Labor Party. To do this, they must take Labor voters.

Chloe can do it. Marama and James can’t.

Meanwhile, the planet is burning.
