Viet Nam: a death and a hundred wounded in anti-Chinese riots.

More than 20 dead, doctor says, as anti-China riots spread in ...

One Chinese was killed and 100 were injured in riots in Viet Nam, arousing the wrath of Beijing Thursday, which accused Hanoi of complicity in these anti-Chinese violence of unprecedented magnitude for decades. The rioting started Tuesday in the South of the Viet Nam, were triggered by the deployment by Beijing of an oil platform off the coast of islands that compete both communist countries in South China Sea. Hanoi, authoritarian one-party that does not tolerate any protest usually promised tough measures to take the situation in hand, until the incidents frighten foreign investors. I asked the Prime Minister’s harsh measures, said the Minister of planning and investment, Bui Quang Vinh, referring to 400 companies affected in total by the violence extended to 22 of the 63 provinces of the Viet Nam. The Prime Minister, Nguyen Tan Dung, has described the situation as very serious and said that the rioters should be punished. However, he assured that patriotism animating the demonstrators were a good thing. The recent outbreak of violence is directly linked to the indulgence of the Vietnamese Government and its collusion with part of the anti-Chinese forces and troublemakers, acknowledged his side Hua Chunying, spokesman for Chinese diplomacy. According to experts, the Vietnamese Government allows certain events to express his extreme displeasure toward Beijing. But it could have been surpassed by the magnitude of the movement, specify. Hundreds of Chinese nationals in the Viet Nam fled to neighbouring Cambodia, according to Cambodian police. The latest riots have occurred in the centre of the country, in the province of Ha Tinh, about 500 km from Hanoi. After the plundering of industrial parks in the South, it is a plant of the Taiwanese group, Formosa Plastics, which was taken for target by the mob on the night of Wednesday to Thursday. A Chinese employee was killed, said a local official, Dang Quoc Khanh, adding that three buildings housing Chinese workers had been burned on the site. At least 149 people were injured, according to a latest official death toll, noting that 76 people had been arrested. The rioters are gone, but we all fear that they return, told AFP a Taiwanese diplomat, Huang Chih-peng. According to the official new China News Agency, at least a dozen Chinese employees were found Thursday. -A battle for Islands – the Viet Nam and China have a long history beset by litigation, feeding nationalist resentments at the heart of the current riots. First of all, these famous Islands in South China Sea: in 1974, while the United States withdrew from Viet Nam, China had taken control of the Paracel (Xisha in Chinese) Islands in South China Sea, occupied by South Viet Nam. In addition, in 1979, the two Communist neighbours clashed during a Sino-Vietnamese, brief but bloody, war after the invasion by China of the northernmost provinces of the Viet Nam. The balance sheet is tens of thousands of dead hand and other. Adds another battle, in 1988, for the control of the Spratly Islands (Nansha in Chinese), which killed some 70 people on the side of Vietnamese. This has not prevented the two countries to normalize their relations in 1991 and multiply economic ties. But Beijing industrial policy and its announcement early May of deploying a platform of oil drilling in deep water in the disputed waters has awakened the old nationalist demons in the Viet Nam. Thousands of anti-Chinese protesters had already burned Tuesday more than 10 factories in the industrial park near Ho Chi Minh City. In total, 500 of them were arrested. The Paracels and the Spratlys archipelagos are supposedly rich in oil and are located on important international sea lanes. The Viet Nam denounced a decision illegal and demanded that the platform be removed. Hanoi has also sent ships to the region and the two capitals to return responsibility for provocations between their ships. .

Unions: Unions talk about the location is beautiful.

INTERVIEW: Union J Talk Single 'Beautiful Life,' A Super Group ...

In the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB), there is a spirit of optimism. With Reiner Hoffmann, a new man takes over the top. The DGB Federal Congress has chosen him as the successor to Michael Sommer with a dream score of 93 percent in favour. So closed, so agree and self-confident as now the unions no longer occurred, despite some differences in detail. They reap popularity in polls, some attract additional members, and in the policy they are heard again. The great coalition Federal Government reads. di, IG metal and co the wishes of almost of the lips off. Better, it might not run, or? The unions are also just very successfully, to clear away motifs for a membership with them. Finally is the core idea of trade unions is to take things along with other employees in their own hands, to fight for better working conditions and higher wages. But this year the unions give so much responsibility on the State like never before. The minimum wage is regulated by the State. Also, agreements should be explained more often by State available for universal application. This means: all employees of a business automatically receive the wage, regardless, whether they work in an operation with or without collective bargaining system or in any form for this have been. These are mixed successes. And perhaps even a law of collective bargaining unit, that each other also state-regulated competition of the unions not to say come this year: turns off. It aims to establish who’s in charge, if two trade unions to the same workers compete. The DGB had wished so that, even if he is himself no longer excited. If the workers lobby but constantly calls for the State and which is becoming more common to the actual guarantor of good work the DGB like asking – why you should pay as a Union contribution? Unfortunately, also their political agenda can appear very attractive trade unions, at least for the broad middle of the society. While the tax increases faces skeptical to hostile, a large part of the Trade Union camp is found per se prima. Even if a tax increase only to be taken back, as now in the case of cold progression, the trade unions as a compensation demand higher taxes elsewhere. Another example: The debt brake to help permanently stop the debt, many citizens that makes sense. But at the DGB Congress reaps acclaim who grumbles about this gag. And it was up to the DGB, Germany should stimulate economic activity in Greece, Spain or Italy with lots of money, rather than to torture the crisis countries spar dictations and reforms of à la Agenda 2010. You can have such views, but one does not win the hearts of many workers to. Anyway, the most important task of trade unions not to be a kind of replacement party is located. For this it not needed them. Its core task is to represent the interests of the workers in the companies. There, it would be desirable, they lose any more ground. It is Yes an illusion to believe anyone could all negotiate individually as well with his or her employer – salary, leave entitlement, Christmas bonus, overtime pay or work rules. Collective agreements are economic sense for both sides. In the last crisis, the working time accounts agreed with works councils and trade unions even helped to cushion the slump. And strong, well anchored in the unions show mostly responsible as radical small groups in their wage demands. The unions thus a mistake, if they think they are in good shape, as the new head of the DGB Hoffmann in his inaugural speech said it. Their situation is serious, and they would have to advertise yet much more intense at the premises to members. The deficits are known for years. You reach to little women, too few academics and too little employment in growth sectors. But what is a Trade Union Congress still de rigueur? That candidates for leadership dick highlight their roots in working-class – like Hoffmann in his speech of the application. And that she her speech with a gritty Glückauf! complete. Clearly, just lose the golden past out of sight!.

Jill Abramson, the priestess of the New York Times, fallen.

In the United States, the departure of Jill Abramson, totally unexpected, has the effect of a bomb. In early afternoon, Wednesday, Arthur Sulzberger, the owner of the New York newspaper, summoned journalists and told them the replacement of Abramson by Dean Baquet, its number two. Baquet becomes the first black to lead the newspaper. Less than three years after named it, Arthur Sulzberger clearly suggested that he had sacked Abramson due to a problem of management in writing, without giving more details.

But the sexagenarian was unpopular in the drafting. It was intimidating, condescending and brusque manners up to the rudeness, according to NPR radio. She was in conflict with the CEO of the group, Mark Thompson, a BBC ex hired to modernize the company and which she lamented the intrusion in the management of the drafting. They would be particularly opposed on the development of the video sector, Thompson to; Abramson, against. Lately, it had decided to initiate a journalist from the Guardian as two co-numero without having informed Dean Baquet. Relationship with Arthur Sulzberger, who had never been very good, were also increasingly strained. Finally, according to the magazine New Yorker apparently well informed, Jill Abramson had recently discovered that she was well paid less than its predecessor Bill Keller and complained in top place. The spokesman for the New York Times denied the information, stating that the remuneration as a whole was not inferior to that of Bill Keller. But this controversy recalls bad memories. In 1974, a group of employees of the newspaper had launched legal action, accusing the newspaper to the discrimination against women in pay and promotion and had forced the daily to commit to change its practices. Suddenly all the media wonder if Jill Abramson is not another victim of sexism. .

Genovese’s arrest is controversy between Pd and M5S.

On the request for the arrest of the Deputy of the Democratic Party you’re consuming another psychodrama. The M5S attacks the Pd: want to slip after voting. But Democrats argue: The M5S prepares the trap. And cricket appeals to law enforcement: don’t do it. "Attention! There is a potential fugitive who prowls the Italy. It’s called Francantonio Genovese, is a member of the Democratic Party, and two months the judiciary calls for his arrest. His party has already given two months to pollute and to reiterate the crime and now wants to postpone a vote on his arrest until after the European elections [,.] We appeal to police: keep an eye on ". The last in order of time to intervene on the issue is Beppe Grillo who, from the pages of his blog, launches an appeal to police to prevent a hypothetical escape of Sicilian member of the Democratic Party, over which hangs a shutdown request from the Prosecutor’s Office in Messina that accuses him of criminal association, money laundering, embezzlement and fraud. Moreover, the story of the vote by the House are taking paradoxical boundaries determined by the overlap of the electoral campaign and the dense agenda of the Parliament, pledged to convert a series of decrees. In fact, the vote in question was scheduled today, after the final vote on the Decree (spacing by a question time session with Minister Latt). To speed up the MEPs Gavino had so withdrawn all the amendments, while there remained the challenge of the left and liberty, which confirmed all its 175 agendas. As of this writing I have been discussed (and rejected) about 100, so it appears highly unlikely that the vote will take place in Genoa on the day, whereas after the agenda there will be group statements and then the vote. Therefore the vote on Genovese could slip tomorrow, although the group leaders will have to decide whether to delay the House Ordinance, approved by the Senate and expires may 27. It must be said that if the vote were to slip again, then the decision on arrest of Galbraith would be postponed to after the (next week in Montecitorio does not hold sittings). .
