Archbishop Francisco said that the protests “must not pass the limits of constitutional rights and liberties” and said that the corruption allegations must be dealt with by the “republican, democratic law” which was “soaked in the blood of men and women who gave their lives fighting for liberation in a fair, inclusive and peaceful society.”The protests began in 2015 when allegations surfaced that a number of politicians had accepted bribes from the state-owned energy company Petrobras. They this month after the current President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, appointed her predecessor, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, as her chief of staff which was widely seen as an attempt to give Lula immunity from corruption charges.A judge of Brazil’s Supreme Court blocked Lula’s appointment last week over the corruption charges; and yesterday another Supreme Court judge refused to overturn that decision. The question will now fall to the full Supreme Court which will decide the issue when it reconvenes after 31 March.The AFP news agency reports that Lula faces money-laundering charges related to a multibillion-dollar corruption scandal. Protestors are calling on President Rousseff to resign; but she has refused to do so, saying that she has not broken any laws. Speaking at a rally at the Presidential Palace yesterday, she called the protests a “coup against democracy” and told supporters: “I will never resign. Not under any circumstances,” the AFP said.Archbishop Francisco De Assis da Silva has written “a few pastoral words” to the people of Brazil in response to the crisis as “a message of hope and trust in our God.”He said that he hoped “the dialogue remains respectful and the political manifestations take place respecting the law and the Democratic rule-of-law State.”He said:The increasing tension must not pass the limits of constitutional rights and liberties, which have been earned by the Brazilian people and cannot be taken back. Two projects of society are at stake here: one that calls for the continuation of advances in social rights for the majority of the Brazilian population and the other builds on a conservative, authoritative presupposition, and is only for the elite and their interests alone.In the face of all this, the Churches in Brazil are urging the Brazilian people to respect the republican, democratic law, constituted with a hard battle and soaked in the blood of men and women who gave their lives fighting for liberation in a fair, inclusive and peaceful society.The investigations of corruption committed by agents of the State in all powers, including in the business sector, are an attack against the people and should be dealt with by the law, and only within the law. They are only legitimate when there is concrete proof and when they guarantee the right to a proper defence.Corporate interests of the large media organizations cannot and should not be ideologically selective nor should they condemn anyone, a priori, because of their ideological profile. The attempt to disqualify people, as they are doing with the ex-president Lula, with no concrete proof, as well as other people with a left-wing political profile, is a clear corporative strategy which doesn’t help in the process of establishing the truth. It only accentuates the political character and increases the tension within society.This is a global and Latin American problem that has caused conservative political changes in detriment of the large majority of the people and has provoked a disastrous political regression which our evangelical conscience should not tolerate.But there is one thing that must not be forgotten: we should never let hate take over in political militancy and in the midst of the tensions we live in at the moment in our Society. Hate will always be a bad guide. Firm convictions cannot be used for the symbolic elimination of our opponents.Therefore, I would like to say a few words to our Anglican friends, recommending that they observe the following:That the Democratic rule-of-law State be respected and that any manoeuvre that deconstructs the results of the ballot boxes be avoided;That any attempt to return to authoritarianism or any model that represents the end of individual rights be discarded;That the free expression of opinion be respected within limits that do not include hate and violence against people or groups.May God bless us and may we be able to firmly defend a project for society that is filled with the values of Justice and Peace! A project that benefits all of society. May there be more love and less hate!

SAM is managed on behalf of the charities by Bell Fundraising, and its members include two other consortia, Childlife and People for People.All SAM’s donations are split eight ways. There are currently almost 10,000 donors signed up to the scheme and it generates £360,000 per year, and is confident the number of donors will grow. Advertisement SAM celebrated its success by encouraging more charities to develop or join payroll giving consortia, a message echoed by the Institute of Fundraising. Those charities who are not already involved in payroll giving often find it hard to enter the market because there are only a handful of Professional Fundraising Organisations, and they do not want to represent too many charities. Consortia therefore offer a viable alternative for charities to get involved in Payroll Giving and gain access to workplace giving. Andrew Peel, Head of Organisational Giving at Sightsavers International, a founding member of SAM, said: “The success of Smile a Minute proves that the consortium approach is a viable way for charities of all sizes to raise money from individuals in the workplace. However, charities must be prepared to invest time and resources in payroll giving over the longer term to make it work for them.” Payroll giving consortium breaks even About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

SHARE A weekend system stays well south, and the system that had potential to move in early next week moves south with it. That means we likely see no real precipitation threat early next week. In fact, I will step out and say that the only threat of moisture next week will come at midweek, and it will be fleeting. Below normal precipitation is likely through the rest of the month.Models still have a major disagreement on the end of the month. The American model is still keen on a major system coming out of the western Corn Belt and sweeping into the OH valley around the 29th-31st. The European not so much. However, the GFS also has much better moisture around the 26th, while the European keeps the best action farther south. The GFS attempts to be warmer in the extended period as well…a solution that is not likely to play out to the level shown. Long and short of it is that we expect March to finish below normal on precipitation and likely a bit below normal on temperatures as well. Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 1/17/2015 Home News Feed Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 1/17/2015 Colder weather moves in today over the Hoosier state. Yesterday was fantastic…today brings a little more reality. Normal temps are in the 50s over northern parts of the state, and low 60s south. We will be close to or below normal in these temperature ranges through the rest of the week and honestly through the rest of the month.Models went drier yesterday as we look at the precipitation pattern through the rest of the month. A system later tomorrow into Thursday just skirts the southern part of the state, with most action staying south of the Ohio River. There may be some spits and sprinkles over the southern tier of counties lining the river overnight tomorrow night and early Thursday…but amounts will be very, very minor. The rest of the state sees only clouds, if that.

In his bail order, Justice VG Arun takes note of the absence of law in this respect, either under the Motor Vehicles Act or penal legislation. “This is an aspect which should engage the attention of the law makers, particularly in view of the increase in the number of road rage incidents in the country”, Justice Arun opined. The applicant, Sunny Thomas, was supposed to have intentionally rammed his truck onto a Toyota Innova owned by the High Court on March 4, while the High Court’s vehicle was parked on the side of the National Highway at Vaniyampara. Opposing bail, the prosecution alleged that the petitioner rammed his truck into the High Court’s vehicle purportedly enraged that the High Court’s vehicle was blocking access to his shop. Despite the driver’s assurances that he would move the car after he purchased a bottle of water, the petitioner proceeded to ram his vehicle into the High Court’s car. When doing so, Thomas is alleged to have shouted, “no one need be under the impression that the board with ‘High Court’ written in red letters, gives him the right to do any mischief” (translation as per the bail order from the High Court). The High Court’s vehicle sustained extensive damage, Justice Arun’s Order records, and led to Thomas’ arrest under the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act (PDPP). After his previous bail application was rejected by the jurisdictional magistrate on the grounds that a rigorous approach was to be taken an offence under the PDPP, particularly one that seemed to have been committed intentionally. Before the High Court, Thomas’ Counsel Advocate Bijo Francis urged the Court that Thomas committed the offence on the spur of the moment and had not premedidated its commission. Describing his offence as sheer arrogance to have slammed his vehicle against a High Court vehicle, the prosecution prayed for the rejection of the bail. Pointing out that Thomas had been incarcerated since March 4, the Court observed that there was no purpose served by continuing his incarceration. The Court touched upon the existing framework that governed acts of this nature. In this respect, the Court underscored the importance of a driver of a vehicle being in full possession of their physical and mental abilities while driving, required under Regulation 5 (1) & (2) of the Motor Vehicles (Driving) Regulations, 2017. Further, Section 19 of the Motor Vehicles Act provides for disqualifying a person from holding driving licence or to revoke the licence if such person has, by his previous conduct as the driver of a motor vehicle, shown that his driving is likely to be attended with danger to the public. However, on the aspect of crimes caused by road rage, the Judge lamented the absence of a framework to deal with this, despite these instances being on the ascent. Explaining what he termed as road rage, the Court stated, “Any person who engages in a course of conduct that causes or threatens an impact involving damage to another vehicle is guilty of road rage.” Pointing out that road rage was a punishable offence in jurisdictions such as Australia, Germany and Singapore, the Court called upon Indian lawmakers to consider the question of penalising road rage in India as well. On facts, the Court allowed Thomas bail, directing him to execute a bond of Rs 50,000 to the subordinate court. Calculating the damage caused to the High Court vehicle as Rs 1,50, 000, the Court also ordered Thomas to deposit this sum with the subordinate court as well, as was mandated under the PDPP Act. With the additional direction to Thomas requiring him to surrender his driving licence for three months, the bail proceedings were closed. CASE NAME: SUNNY THOMAS V.
