IN JAMAICA : Teens feed the homeless... Street People Liberation

uesday, June 28, 2016    
Daily, regular men, women and young people walk by the homeless on Jamaican streets. They perhaps feel a faint pang of empathy, but they walk on with their lives.
Ashli-Ann Broughton (19) and her team of over 50 volunteers at Street People Liberation don't. They acted on the pangs of empathy, deciding to do something for some of society's most vulnerable.
Street People Liberation  
Street People Liberation is a non-profit organisation which was founded by Ashli-Ann in March 2014. It is operated by youths who plan projects geared towards improving the lives of the homeless, supplying them with clothing and toiletries throughout the year, and cooked meals on public holidays.  
These TEENs cook and distribute hot meals to the homeless, primarily on public holidays, because the St James Parish Council Care Centre, which provides food and clothing for the homeless persons around Montego Bay throughout the week, is closed on public holidays. In June 2015, Street People Liberation was awarded a St. James Junior Council award for valuable contribution to the parish. Ashli-Ann [pictured above with fellow volunteer Sabrina Ferguson (left)], however, feeds the homeless in MoBay on the weekend, at least twice a month. Why does she do it? Ashli-Ann says that after seeing their plight, "I thought to myself that the Government can’t assist the homeless alone, and instead of discriminating and complaining, I came up with the idea to start my own initiative to care for the homeless."
Street People Liberation  
Since starting out with 10 volunteers, from the schools of Cornwall College, Montego Bay High School for Girls, Mt Alvernia High School, Anchovy High School, Irwin High School and the Montego Bay Community College, Street People Liberation has grown, and estimate that they have helped close to 1500 homeless persons. "Our projects are funded by friends and families of members. A majority of persons who donate to us live overseas, they ship parcels of clothing and tin items to us. However, all our donations are given to these persons throughout the year, and over our past two years of existence and donations, the homeless in Montego Bay have received shoes, toiletries, shirts, shoes etc." the president and founder told teenAGE. more

HATE CRIMES SKYROCKET IN UK : ‘YES! WE WON! NOW SEND THEM BACK’... ‘No More Polish Vermin’... ‘Go Back To Africa’... WATCH: Brexit Leader Goes Full-On Trump, Denies Vote Unleashed Surge Of Racism... MARKET MADNESS: Global Markets Lose $3 Trillion... Britons Flood Ireland With EU Passport Queries...

June 28, 2016...Excerpt from Huffington Post
The fallout following the British vote to leave the European Union has triggered an uptick in racist incidents.
An aversion to immigration has been at the forefront for the “leave” camp, emboldening xenophobes to reportedly come out of the shadows and publicly attack immigrant communities.
Eyewitnesses have taken to social media to describe incidents they have encountered, and an account called Post Ref Racism was started on both Twitter and Facebook to offer people a “space to document the increase in racism,” according to the page’s description. Britain’s Polish community has been specifically targeted by xenophobic sentiments. Police are investigating various “racially motivated hate crimes“ targeting Poles in England.
Authorities first found leaflets saying “no more Polish vermin” in central England.Graffiti demanding that Poles leave the U.K. was later discovered at a Polish cultural center in London.
The spokesman for Poland’s President Andrzej Duda demanded that Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage, the two primary leaders of the “leave” movement, condemn the “outrageous barbarity“ of these actions.
Prime Minister David Cameron responded to the incidents on Monday. His government “will not tolerate intolerance” and condemns “some of the incidents we have seen across the country over the weekend of intimidating migrants and telling them that they need to go home,” he said.
And a Labour member of parliament, Jess Phillips, tweeted that she would submit a question to Parliament to find out how many racial incidents had occurred over the weekend compared with prior to the referendum.

OLYMPICS: Rio de Janeiro's acting governor: Olympics could be a 'big failure' Official warns: Money is needed quickly to avoid 'difficulties' Man throws water at Olympic torchRio gets huge bailoutIOC backs Russia doping ban

By Tiffany Ap, CNN Updated 4:04 AM ET, Tue June 28, 2016
(CNN)The headache for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games organizers shows no signs of subsiding.
Brazilian fireman Haudson Alves descends from a helicopter carrying the Olympic flame on a lantern at the Brasilia National Stadium in Brasilia on May 3, 2016.
Embattled President Dilma Rousseff greeted the Olympic flame in Brazil on Tuesday, promising not to allow a raging political crisis, which could see her suspended within days, to spoil the Rio Games. The torch will now be carried in a relay by 12,000 people through 329 cities, ending in Rio's Maracana stadium on August 5 for the opening ceremony.        / AFP / BETO BARATA        (Photo credit should read BETO BARATA/AFP/Getty Images)Six weeks before the Games are set to begin, Francisco Dornelles, the acting governor of the state of Rio de Janeiro, told the Brazilian newspaper O Globo that the state has not yet received recently-approved federal funds to beef up security and transportation for the quadrennial competition.
    "I am optimistic about the games, but I have to show the reality. We can make a great Olympics, but if some steps are not taken, it can be a big failure," Dornelles told O Globo.
    Olympic Games: Is Rio ready? The budget shortfall adds to the "perfect storm" Brazil is facing leading up to the Games, due to kick off on August 5. Organizers are dealing with concerns regarding the Zika virus, a doping scandal in which Brazil's only testing lab was suspended, high crime and political upheaval involving the country's highest figures.
    In the interview, Dornelles said that without the bailout money, the state could only afford to cover the expenses of the police force for a few more days.
    "The police fleet runs the risk of stopping. We managed to stretch the finances and we'll only last until the end of the week," Dornelles said.
    The state's police officers have not been paid for overtime work for more than six months.
    Brazil's federal government approved the bailout, worth about $850 million (2.9 billion reals), last week. more

    OFFICIAL BENGAZI REPORT OUT TODAY: House Republicans are planning to release a long-awaited report Tuesday on the Benghazi terror attacks that killed four Americans ...Clinton should have realized risks. The portion of the report obtained by CNN doesn't offer a scathing indictment of Clinton.

    Washington (CNN)House Republicans are planning to release a long-awaited report Tuesday on the Benghazi terror attacks that killed four Americans on Hillary Clinton's watch as secretary of state, reviving the politically charged issue less than five months before the election.

    The report, parts of which have already been reviewed by CNN, paints a picture of a perfect storm of bureaucratic inertia, rapidly worsening security in Libya and inadequate resources in the months that led up to the killings of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three colleagues on September 11, 2012.
    Clinton told the House Benghazi Committee last year that she was aware of the dangers in Libya but "there was no actionable intelligence" indicating a planned attack.
      The portion of the report obtained by CNN doesn't offer a scathing indictment of Clinton. But it does argue that intelligence was available suggesting an attack was possible and Clinton and a top aide, Patrick Kennedy, should have realized the risks posed to the Benghazi mission by extremist groups.
      "It is not clear what additional intelligence would have satisfied either Kennedy or the Secretary in understanding the Benghazi mission compound was at risk -- short of an attack," the report says.
      Conservative members of the panel are expected to release a more political analysis of the attack Tuesday that's far more critical of Clinton. more
