SINN Fein councillor Jack Murray has hit out at the latest Jobbridge positions advertised in Co Donegal – including three positions at a garage washing cars.Sweeney’s Spar Express at Ballyraine in Letterkenny wants three people to take up the nine-month contracts.An advert on the Jobbridge website says the successful candidates will get training in how to put petrol/diesel into cars. They will also operate the site’s car wash system and stack shelves in the supermarket.Whoever takes up the positions will be expected to work 38-hour weeks in return for €50 on top of their dole money.Cllr Murray insisted: “I am opposed to the scheme in principle. Anyone who works for a week deserves to be paid for a week; as simple as that.“However these latest positions show how the scheme is being used and I have to say I couldn’t believe it when I was told about this. “The idea that someone would gain valuable life work skills on such a scheme is just ridiculous.“It shows once again to anyone who thought this scheme was a good idea what a really bad idea it is.” MURRAY SLAMS DONEGAL JOBBRIDGE POSITIONS – WASHING CARS AT PETROL STATION was last modified: December 10th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Jack MurrayJobbridge schemeletterkennySweeneys Ballyraine

25 September 2003President Thabo Mbeki has called on world leaders, especially those in rich nations, to put their differences aside and practically recommit themselves to the United Nations.Mbeki told the 191-member UN Assembly in New York on Tuesday that the poor expected a united international community to create a just and fairer global village.“The disempowered will continue to look to this organisation, understanding, correctly, that they are too weak to advance their interests singly, outside of the collective voice of the United Nations,” he said.Mbeki told world leaders that the disempowered believed in a collective future of hope, and were also looking to the 50-year-old body to help bring an end to conflicts around the globe, while working towards the Millennium Declaration goals of halving poverty and a lack of basic necessities by 2015.“For us, collectively, to meet these expectations, will require that each and every one of us, both rich and poor, both the powerful and the disempowered, commit ourselves practically to act, in all circumstances, in a manner that recognises and respects the fact that none of us is an island”, Mbeki said.Mbeki said the attack by the US and its allies on Iraq posed many questions over the future and role of the UN as the custodian of world peace and security.“What is decided about the role of the UN in Iraq will … decide what will become of the UN in the context of its Charter, and the important global objectives that have been taken since the Charter was adopted,” he said.Regarding globalisation, Mbeki said the global village was still populated by unequal relations, with the majority in the developing nations still powerless and dominated by the powerful West.This situation ought to be reversed, he said, by levelling the playing field within the UN institution, whose responsibilities have increased since the body was first launched, by reforming its structures and organs.Mbeki warned that failure to transform the UN could result in the world failing to defeat poverty, underdevelopment and the terrorism that threatens world peace.Source: BuaNews

Three days after the Panjab University campus witnessed a violent clash between students and the police amid a protest against fee hike, the students are in no mood to relent, with many of them continuing their protest on Friday. However, differences cropped up among members of the Joint Student Action Committee (JSAC), which was formed by student unions to press for a rollback. Students owing allegiance to the National Students Union of India, who broke away from the JSAC, continued to sit on a relay fast demanding a rollback. Relay fastStudent leader Manoj Lubana said: “NSUI has separated from the JSAC owing to differences in ideology and methodology, which made the protest a political gimmick.”“It’s the eleventh day of the relay fast,” said Mr. Lubana, adding that the NSUI would soon meet Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh and Governor V.P. Singh Badnore and urge them to find plausible solutions and get proper funding for the University.The JSAC mainly includes Panjab University Students Union (PUSU), National Students Union of India (NSUI), the Students Front and Students Organisation of India (SOI). The Students For Society (SFS) and the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) are not part of the JSAC. The elected Panjab University Students Council, meanwhile, intends to resume its agitation in the coming days, if the fee hike is not rolled back.‘Revoke police cases’“We had a meeting with the university administration today [Friday] as well on the issue. Also, we have asked the authorities to withdraw the cases filed against innocent students following the clash with police,” said Nishant Kaushal, president of the Panjab University Campus Students Council. Mr. Kaushal said the stone-throwing episode on the campus was the handiwork of “outsiders”. The students have been protesting against the significant hike in tuition fee announced by the PU Senate last month for the 2017-18 academic year.
