Capitol insurrection could be a bigger racial reckoning than the George Floyd protests

  Capitol insurrection could be a bigger racial reckoning than the George Floyd protests The insurrection at the Capitol could have a far-reaching impact on racial justice in America -- bigger, even, than last summer's George Floyd protests. In some ways, it already has. Here are five reasons why the Capitol insurrection offers an opportunity for transformative change. © Charles Gorry/AP President John F. Kennedy gives a nationwide televised address on civil rights from the White House on June 11, 1963. It's damaged Trumpism in a way that no other controversy has Consider the impact of last year's George Floyd protests -- what they did, and what they failed to do.

La Défenseure des droits estime que le burkini « conçu pour la baignade » ne nuit « ni à la sécurité, ni à l’hygiène des baigneuses » de la base de loisirs de Jablines-Anet (Seine-et-Marne).  © Anoek DE GROOT / AFP The Defender of Rights considers that the burkini “designed for swimming” does not harm “neither the safety nor the hygiene of bathers” in the Jablines-Anet leisure center (Seine-et-Marne).

The regulations of the Jablines-Anet leisure center (Seine-et-Marne), prohibiting bathing for clothed persons, is considered discriminatory by the Defender of Rights. The case scandalizes the right.

As the National Assembly is due to revisit the consideration of the anti-separatism bill on Monday February 1, the debate on wearing the burkini at the swimming pool resurfaces.

It was a letter sent by the services of the

Defender of rights on December 22 to the Jablines-Anet leisure center ( Seine-et-Marne ) that lit the fuse. The internal regulations of the base, placed under the authority of the Ile-de-France region, stipulate that "dressed people" are "refused access to water for reasons of security ”.

DOJ nominee Kristen Clarke wants to make the promise of 'justice for all' a reality

  DOJ nominee Kristen Clarke wants to make the promise of 'justice for all' a reality Kristen Clarke could become the first woman and first Black woman to lead the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division if confirmed by the Senate. "We are at a crossroads," she told a small audience of reporters in Wilmington, Delaware. "If I am fortunate enough to be confirmed, we will turn the page on hate and close the door on discrimination by enforcing our federal civil rights laws.

In his letter, George-Pau Langevin, assistant to the Defender of Rights Claire Hedon, considers that this

“ban on burkini within the leisure center is likely to constitute discrimination” . Problem: it is based on a complaint from the Collectif contre l'Islamophobie en France (CCIF), dating back to 2019. However, this collective, accused by the government of propagating "consistently an Islamist propaganda action", was dissolved on December 2, 2020, following the assassination of Professor Samuel Paty . The Charter of Values ​​of the Republic invoked

The Region invokes the Charter of Values ​​of the Republic and secularism. In force since 2017, this document prevents

“users of regional public services” from adopting behavior likely to infringe “hygiene and safety rules” or likely to “disturb public order ".

Why the double standard on human rights with Saudi Arabia and Iran?

  Why the double standard on human rights with Saudi Arabia and Iran? Human rights in Saudi Arabia likely will improve incrementally, but in Iran they will remain in the same dismal state. When Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei passes on, the two leading candidates to replace him are known human rights abusers. The top candidates are the current head of the judiciary - Ebrahim Raisi, whose resume includes mass executions of political prisoners, and the ayatollah's son, Mojtaba Khamenei. He was in charge of the regime's crackdown to break the 2009 Green Revolution, when millions of Iranians took to the streets against the regime.

The Defender of Rights believes, for her part, that the burkini is

"precisely designed for swimming" . And that "neither the safety nor the hygiene of bathers appear threatened".
