His 13.15 he ran in the preliminary race at the UNF Invitational and his 13.10 are the two fastest times in NCAA history for the month of April.

BRUSSELS –


The French president warned on Monday that it could be decades before Ukraine joins the European Union and proposed a new political organization to bring together countries on the continent that share EU values ​​but are not part of the EU. of the block.


During a speech marking Europe Day in Strasbourg, France, Emmanuel Macron said that “we all know perfectly well that the process of joining (to Ukraine) would take several years, in fact probably several decades” .


Macron spoke after the European Union’s executive arm, the European Commission, said it intended to issue a first opinion in June on Ukraine’s application to join the bloc.


Once candidate status has been granted, the EU accession process usually takes years and any member state can veto not only any final accession agreement, but also the opening and closing of individual negotiating chapters.


The 27 EU countries have been fully united in backing Ukraine’s resistance to Russia’s invasion, passing unprecedented economic sanctions against Moscow since the war began on February 24. But leaders are divided on how quickly Brussels could accept Ukraine as a member, and how quickly the bloc could sever energy ties with Moscow.


European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said she had discussed with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Monday “EU support and Ukraine’s European path”.


For now, Ukraine only has an “association agreement” with the EU, which aims to open up the country’s markets and bring it closer to Europe. It includes a far-reaching free trade pact and aims to contribute to the modernization of the Ukrainian economy.


Eastern European countries warmly support accelerating Ukraine’s bid for membership, but EU officials have stressed the process could take years due to pending reforms that need to be completed. yet to be achieved before the war-torn country meets EU criteria.


Macron has said a fast-track for Ukraine would lead to lower standards, an idea he rejects.


“The European Union, given its level of integration and ambition, cannot be the only means of structuring the European continent in the short term”, he declared.


Instead, Macron proposed what he called a “European Political Community” that would be open to countries that have not joined the EU or, like the UK, left it.


“This new European organization would allow democratic European nations that adhere to our fundamental values ​​to find a new space for political cooperation, security, energy cooperation, transport, investment, infrastructure, movement of people,” he said. Macron.


Macron added that joining the new organization would not guarantee future EU membership.


Speaking at an EU conference on the bloc’s future priorities, Macron pointed to the stark contrast with Russia, which on the same day held a military parade in Moscow to commemorate the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany during World War II.


“We gave two very different images of May 9,” Macron said. “On the one hand, there was a desire to show force and intimidation and a resolutely warlike discourse, and there was… an association of citizens and parliamentarians – national and European – for a project on our coming.”

“The Democratic establishment has gone around the First Amendment, using Big Tech as a proxy to stifle dissenting opinion.” That sentiment, which I expressed last year and on other occasions, is now the basis of a lawsuit filed against Joe Biden and other administration officials by two state attorneys general.

As the Washington Examiner reports:

Republican attorneys general in Missouri and Louisiana accused President Joe Biden and other senior government officials in a lawsuit Thursday of colluding with social media giants such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to censor and suppress speech under pretext to combat dangerous misinformation.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry have filed a lawsuit in an attempt to demonstrate the Biden administration’s alleged work with Big Tech companies to unfairly suppress speech about related information to COVID-19, election integrity and other topics.

The lawsuit claims that Biden and his supporters, during the 2020 election campaign and now in office, worked directly with executives and employees of major tech companies to censor content related to contentious political debates over the past two years.

“We allege that government officials in the Biden administration, including President Biden, press secretary Jen Psaki, Dr. Anthony Fauci, surgeon general Vivek Murthy and others, collaborated with social media companies like Meta, Twitter, and Youtube to remove truthful information related to lab leak theory, mask effectiveness, election integrity, etc. Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said in a news release. “I will not sit idly by while the Biden administration attempts to trample on the First Amendment rights of Missourians and Americans.”

The lawsuit also names Nina Jankowicz, head of the Department of Homeland Security’s new “Disinformation Governance Council,” who was widely mocked for singing a pro-censorship song to the tune of by Mary Poppins “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

the New York Post adds to the story, writing:

The 86-page lawsuit accuses the federal government of violating free speech rights by threatening big tech companies with silencing conservative viewpoints.

“Having threatened and cajoled social media platforms for years to censor views and speakers disadvantaged by the left, senior executive branch officials have entered a phase of open collusion with social media companies to suppress the disadvantaged speakers, views and content on social media platforms under the Orwellian guise of stopping so-called “misinformation”. “misinformation” and “malinformation”,” the filler claims.

Biden Admin announces $3.1 billion to manufacture electric vehicle batteries in the United States https://milwaukeecountyfirst.com/biden-admin-announces-3-1-billion-to-manufacture-electric-vehicle-batteries-in-the-united-states/ Thu, 05 May 2022 16:30:19 +0000 https://milwaukeecountyfirst.com/biden-admin-announces-3-1-billion-to-manufacture-electric-vehicle-batteries-in-the-united-states/ President Joe Biden’s administration is working to increase the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States.

President Joe Biden’s administration is working to increase the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States. He announced $3.1 billion in funding from the Department of Energy to help companies build new factories or retrofit current factories to manufacture batteries for electric vehicles in the United States.

The latest funding is part of the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that was signed into law last year. The goal is to support domestic battery production to reduce America’s dependence on oil and other countries that supply minerals for batteries. This announcement comes as the price of gas has skyrocketed due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and sanctions on Russian oil.

Gina McCarthy, White House National Climate Advisor

“These made-in-America batteries are going to help reduce emissions and create opportunity across the country.”

In addition to the $3.1 billion in funding, the White House also announced it would allocate $60 million in grants for battery recycling programs.

According to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, “President Biden’s historic investment in battery production and recycling will give our national supply chain the boost it needs to become safer and less dependent on others. nations, strengthening our clean energy economy, creating well-paying jobs and decarbonizing the transport sector.

Lithium, cobalt and other minerals needed for electric vehicle batteries are currently being widely processed in Asia. According to the London-based company Reference Mineral IntelligenceChina is responsible for 80% of the global raw materials needed for advanced batteries.

The transportation sector – cars, trucks, commercial aircraft and railroads – in the United States is a major contributor to the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. According to the EPA, about a third of the country’s emissions can be attributed to transportation.

Accessibility for Black and Brown Communities Key to Successful EV Adoption in the U.S.

Electric vehicles continue to grow in popularity, but not everyone is buying them, even though they can be 40% cheaper than traditional cars. A study points out that the adoption of electric vehicles in California presents certain disparities according to race and income. Read more.

The Biden administration has set a goal for electric vehicles to account for half of all vehicle sales in the United States by 2030. Increasing battery production and reducing costs are key to the adoption of electric vehicles.

The $3.1 billion will be made available to companies as grants to those wishing to build factories in the United States. The program stipulates that companies must match the grant amount and the minimum grant is $50 million. This means that any new factory must cost at least $100 million.

“These grants to expand battery manufacturing in the United States will create well-paying jobs, boost our economic competitiveness, and help us fight the climate crisis,” said U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto.

Several automakers, like Ford and General Motors, have announced plans to build battery factories in the United States, which will now be boosted by subsidies. Last fall, Ford announced plans to build two lithium-ion battery plants in Kentucky and a 3,600-acre campus in Tennessee that will include an additional battery plant and recycling center. Battery production in factories is expected to start as early as 2025.

General Motors also announced earlier this year that it would build its third battery plant in Lansing, Michigan. GM will begin building the new battery plant this summer and is scheduled to open in late 2024. According to GM, the facility will have a capacity of 50 gigawatt hours of battery cells in full production.

Lauren Leffer, Gizmodo

There is no doubt that we must move away from fossil fuels, as soon as possible, to avoid the ever more serious consequences of climate change. But switching to all electric cars or more battery storage on the power grid, while possible, is fraught with potential political, environmental and human complications.

There’s a bigger sustainability issue at play with an electric-only future. British scientists have done the math to discover that we, as a planet, lack of resources to fully electrify automobiles. Simply put: the adoption of electric vehicles is a crucial part of the solution, but electric cars alone will not save us.

POLICE TAKE A TOUR IN Washington Square Park. Photo credit: Account owner @washingtonsquareparksos.

By Sophie Astor

For most Instagram users, the perfect place to snap selfies or post pictures of the city’s gilded youth sporting alternative fashions is in front of the iconic landmarks of Washington Square Park. For the owner of the Instagram account @washingtonsquareparksos, it’s a tool to monitor police activity and warn artists and sellers of impending crackdowns.

@washingtonsquareparksos, which posts videos of arrests and scuffles with police, has gained over 500 followers and been shared with hundreds more since its first post in January. It also earned the account owner more than a few enemies. She declined to be identified due to the constant harassment and death threats she says she receives from strangers.

“People are surrounded and intimidated by large groups of cops over Bluetooth speakers, trying to sell clothes,” @washingtonsquareparksos explained. “I’m posting to care about the park community and to show them they can have a voice, they can fight this attack on their livelihood.”

The police presence in Washington Square Park has intensified since Mayor Eric Adams took office in January. While some residents appreciate the attention, many park residents say police enforcement of minor quality of life violations is highly arbitrary, sometimes involving excessive force.

“Some people may say I’m too political, but I think that’s ridiculous,” said @washingtonsquareparksos. “It’s not about being political. It’s about having a moral, being ethical. She checks in with vendors and street performers in the park daily to keep up to date with what’s going on. Eric Cook, who has been selling his art in the park for years, says his account plays an important role in bringing attention to the situation in the park. “Everything the police do here is capricious; they can move anyone at any time for any reason,” Cook said. The NYPD did not respond to requests for comment.

Calista Sheehan, a 22-year-old park regular, says she started following the account because it also warns of known sexual harassers and other potentially dangerous people lurking in the park. Adam Ellis, who sells paintings and T-shirts, likes @washingtonsquareparksos because the police tend to ignore what’s really important. “There are people stealing artists’ money, people using hard drugs here every day, and I don’t see the cops bothering them,” Ellis said. “The narrative shows who they are really cracking down on, and it’s the salesmen, the bikers, the musicians.”

But Ellis said there were also things he didn’t like about @washingtonsquareparksos. “The awareness is amazing, but the account can be a very negative place. There’s a lot of fighting, a lot of shouting, and I think you have to spread some positivity as well,” he said.

@washingtonsquareparksos, accepts this criticism but says she’s happy to do things her own way. In his videos, he can usually be heard aggressively shouting at the police behind the camera.

“I curse, I speak loudly, I know the police hate me, but I’m not here to make the idea of ​​a perfect activist come true,” she said. “It’s my account, and I do what I want. I want to capture real emotions that the community can relate to.

The Financial Times published an op-ed on Sunday calling on the Biden administration to maintain tariffs on Chinese goods first put in place by the Trump administration.

The room, title “Cutting Chinese tariffs will provide no respite from rising prices,” wrote Oren Cass, a former political adviser to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012.

“A campaign is underway, led by Biden administration officials, to convince Americans that reducing tariffs on Chinese imports could offer relief from rapidly rising prices,” Cass wrote.

CHINA TELLS US TAIWAN IS PART OF CHINA IN FIRST CALL WITH SECRETARY AUSTIN: REPORT

“It’s not remotely so – indeed, the argument is hard to deliver without a wry smile and a chuckle,” he continued.

Last week, Axios reported that there are internal disputes over tariffs within the Biden administration, which “pits Treasury economists, including Secretary Janet Yellen, against China hawks in the National Security Council.”

In his editorial, Cass argues that even if tariffs were removed, they would have little or no effect in reducing inflation.

“Tariff changes do not necessarily translate into price changes,” he wrote.

“As analysts like Alan Tonelson of RealityChek and Michael Stumo of the Coalition for a Prosperous America have observed for years, it’s hard to find evidence in consumer price data from 2018-19 to justify the warnings that American consumers will bear the brunt of Trump administration tariffs.”

IRAN SEEKS TO INCREASE MILITARY COOPERATION WITH ‘REMEMBERED’ CHINA

Cass also argues that canceling Trump’s tariffs will not address the root cause of inflation and would simply let China off the hook for its transgressions.

“A tariff of a given size may affect the price level but it does nothing on the rate of change. A tariff imposed in 2018 might have caused a price increase in 2018, but it cannot take responsibility price increases in 2022.”

Trump allies have hailed the tariffs as a reset in U.S.-China relations.

Some members of the national security apparatus, including General Robert Spalding, who served as senior director of strategic planning at the National Security Council, have expressed concern that the Chinese Communist Party is exerting undue influence on companies. Americans.

“At the end of the Cold War, globalization and the Internet really brought about a convergence between the social, political, economic and financial systems of authoritarian and totalitarian governments and free governments. When this happened, the Chinese Communist Party and other authoritarian regimes have really had the opportunity to influence the behavior of American companies,” he said. mentioned.

Administrator Biden’s $33 billion aid proposal will benefit US entrepreneurs more than Ukraine: experts https://milwaukeecountyfirst.com/administrator-bidens-33-billion-aid-proposal-will-benefit-us-entrepreneurs-more-than-ukraine-experts/ Sat, 30 Apr 2022 02:11:00 +0000 https://milwaukeecountyfirst.com/administrator-bidens-33-billion-aid-proposal-will-benefit-us-entrepreneurs-more-than-ukraine-experts/ US President Joe Biden’s proposal for an alternate defense and economic package worth $33 billion will benefit major US shareholders over Ukrainian forces fighting Russia, experts have analysed.

US President Joe Biden’s proposal for an alternate defense and economic package worth $33 billion will benefit major US shareholders over Ukrainian forces fighting Russia, experts have analysed. Speaking to the Sputnik news agency, US Army veteran Colonel Douglas MacGregor said the most immediate impact of the proposed new aid package will “further enrich defense industries shareholders and the politicians who represent their interests in Washington DC”. He also suggested that the slices of defense shipped to Ukraine so far will have “at most” a modest effect on fighting the war in eastern Ukraine.

“The Russians know where the material will be stored and how it will be shipped east. As a result, much of it will be destroyed or end up in isolated warehouses hundreds of kilometers from the scene of the action,” the colonel said. McGregor, who is a former Trump administration adviser, historian and tactician, explained.

$33 billion could spread war across borders, expert says

Historian and political pundit Dan Lazare has also expressed concerns about the $33 billion draft economic and military aid proposal forwarded by the Biden administration for congressional approval. He feared the attribution indicated the war was shifting from a regional platform to an international conflict involving the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the United States. “The more Biden throws fuel on the fire, the more the war is likely to spread beyond its original borders,” Lazare told Sputnik. Speaking about the series of explosions in Moldova, he added: “If the state somehow dragged itself due to these mysterious explosions in Transnistria, then all bets are off as to what comes next.”

Lazare pointed out that if the war escaped the hands of potential borders, NATO would be forced to plunge into it, thus leading to “madness”. He compared the situation to 1914 “only this time with nuclear weapons…this madness, needless to say”, he added. Lazare further criticized US diplomats for their anti-Russian “crusade”, accusing them of triggering Putin. “Words have consequences. Years of Kremlin bashing have finally led to a real European war raging out of control,” he snubbed.

Biden has proposed an additional $33 billion for Ukraine

As the Russian war escalated in Ukraine, the Biden administration on Friday offered a massive $33 billion package on top of the $3.5 billion previously allocated in March this year. The request for Congressional approval came amid a report showing a sharp decline in US GDP, at a rate of 1.4%. The downward chart is believed to be due to supply chain bottlenecks. Despite the slug, Biden said “expanding the battle isn’t cheap but it’s important to fight Russian aggression. If we leave Ukraine, it will cost more.” The comprehensive legislative package proposal should bolster US authority to hold Russia and Russian oligarchs accountable for Putin’s war on Ukraine, the White House said in a Twitter post.

Biden’s plan to end Title 42 border rules blocked by judge https://milwaukeecountyfirst.com/bidens-plan-to-end-title-42-border-rules-blocked-by-judge/ Tue, 26 Apr 2022 21:56:00 +0000 https://milwaukeecountyfirst.com/bidens-plan-to-end-title-42-border-rules-blocked-by-judge/ Members of a Central American caravan who have spent weeks traveling through Mexico walk from Mexico to the U.S. side of the border April 29, 2018 in Tijuana, Baja California Norte, Mexico. | David McNew/Getty Images A federal judge has temporarily blocked the Biden administration from ending Title 42 restrictions enacted during the COVID-19 pandemic […]]]>

A federal judge has temporarily blocked the Biden administration from ending Title 42 restrictions enacted during the COVID-19 pandemic aimed at limiting asylum seekers who can seek protection at the U.S.-Brazilian border. Mexico.

Trump-appointed Judge Robert Summerhays granted a movement for a temporary restraining order preventing the Biden administration from lifting Title 42 rules issued under the Trump administration in March 2020. A lawsuit against the administration’s plan has been filed by Missouri, Louisiana and arizona.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announcement the restraining order on Monday.

The United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention has implemented the measure limit the number of asylum seekers seeking protection at the US-Mexico border. But the CDC announcement its decision to end the order on April 1, with the Biden administration intending to implement the termination on May 23.

“Today the Court announced its intention to grant a temporary restraining order in the Missouri, Louisiana and Arizona lawsuit against the Biden administration for their planned suspension of Title 42,” wrote Schmitt. “This temporary restraining order should keep Title 42 in place until further legal proceedings, a critical victory for border security and the rule of law. My office will continue to fight to secure the border and protect the Missourians.”

Former acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tom Homan, who is now a visiting fellow at the conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation, told the Christian Post that the judge’s ruling was “the right move for the protection of health in this country.

Homan believes Title 42 has been “very successful” in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and improving border security.

“The truth is that we want to prevent fewer infections from coming to the United States, but also give Border Patrol a more operational capability because when they close the borders, fewer people come in, and that means Border Patrol … can more than hold the line, they are vigilant, to protect our national security,” the former Trump administration official said.

Several Democrats have expressed opposition to lifting the directive on public health, including the senses. Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly. Like Call reported, the senators wrote in a March 24 letter to President Joe Biden that while Title 42 “should not be in effect indefinitely,” it should remain in place until the administration implements a better plan to deal with migrant applications.

The senators warned that abruptly ending a policy without a clear plan to replace it “would greatly increase the pressure on [Department of Homeland Security]border communities and local non-profit organizations that are already close or at full capacity. »

The senators also argue that the administration failed to communicate with local government and community leaders in Arizona about the policy changes.

Last month when I spoke to journalistsSen. Joe Manchin, DW.V., also voiced his opposition to the lifting of Title 42.

“If anything, we should consider tenure on Title 42,” he said. “Maybe that would inspire us to have a good immigration policy that works for Americans and to secure our borders – borders have to be secure,” he said.

The progressive legal organization American Civil Liberties Union claimed March 29 statement that he believes Title 42 has been “misused as a border enforcement tool”.

“Our government has the tools it needs to safely screen people at the border, as required by our laws, to determine if they are eligible for asylum or other humanitarian protections,” wrote the group. “The CDC should resist any political interference from the White House and end Title 42 in its entirety.”

The CDC had voted to extend the order for Title 42 in late January due to an increase in COVID-19 cases caused by the omicron variant. Last March, the CDC delayed the implementation of a Title 42 rescission order until May 23 to allow Homeland Security to prepare for a dramatic increase in border crossings in the coming months.

According to federal statistics Submitted to federal court earlier this month, DHS reported 221,303 total encounters on the Southwest Border in March. Like CBS News the government reported 1.7 million evictions under Title 42 last month.

Since civilians:

  1. How would you rate the state of the national economy right now? Notes for the last 12 months.

2. Do you think things in this country are going in the right direction or are they heading in the wrong direction? last 12 months. CORRECT PATH / INCORRECT PATH

As we have discussed in the past, energy prices are pushing up a lot of this feeling:

Energy prices are factored into food prices for several reasons.

And National Republicans are using it to their advantage. To do otherwise would be professional misconduct. #GoWhereTheVotesAre #GetVotesYouDon’tHave.

And it’s working here in Virginia as Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger’s race is now ranked as Throw in the air by the Cook Policy Report. AVU’s Center for Politics ranks VA 7 as a Lean Democrat for now.

Brandon Jarvis of Virginia Scope reports:

Spanberger, Slotkin urge Biden administration to delay lifting Title 42 in a letter including:

While you inherited this problem, it is now your responsibility – with the necessary help from Congress – to fix our broken immigration system,” Spanberger and Slotkin wrote. “Given our national security track record, we know that the executive branch is used to planning for contingencies, and it is for this reason that we submit to you the requests below for the measures to be taken before the Administration does lift the Title 42 ordinance, so that we prevent a humanitarian and security crisis.

Immigration is a growing issue for the Biden administration, and Spanberger’s letter explains what will happen if Title 42 is lifted — “a humanitarian and security crisis” that could make the medium-term forecast worse than current projections.

Sounds like an opportunity for Admin Biden to help out swing-district Democrats like Spanberger, doesn’t it?

Well…apparently Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal of Washington, chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, isn’t progressive enough and progressives, according to this report, are looking to sit out midterms because they don’t have not everything on their wish list and they want title 42 lifted. #EatTheirOwn.

Watch this video outlining the Democrats’ internal issues that will be ripe for their opponents:

Politics is about compromise. The beauty of politics isn’t getting what you want, but what you find out you’re willing to give up to get what you want.

Which reminds me of the great MLB pitcher, Greg Maddux, who would intentionally give opposing hitters the pitches they wanted in order to set them up for failure in future games.

I didn’t intentionally give up a home run, but there are times when you try to get the hitter to hit so you know he’ll be sitting on it the rest of the year,” he said. said Maddux. “…I had a coach who told me what hitters remember, and they remember success. So, [if] they put you on a certain ground, they’re going to sit on it for a long time.

“…I did it mostly in spring training. I think you try to plant a seed in guys’ heads in spring training and try to walk away from it once the season starts.

I realize politics is different, but baseball teaches good lessons for politics. Here are five:

  1. It’s a long season. A grind. Your pace
  2. Pitcher and defense win championships.
  3. The bars are fascists. #CrashDavis
  4. A walk is as good as a hit.
  5. Hit your ground.

IF progressives decide to ditch the Democratic Party and form their own party, they will be trying to fill a growing market desire – namely – a third party with scale and money.

My money is on them pending the current generation of leaders. #CompromiseOrIrony? Both?

Look at the trend line for Third US Party since 2003 according to Gallup. The high point was last year at 62% BEFORE the right track/wrong track numbers (see above) went from NET (-12) to NET (-38).

And what about the GOP if Donald Trump runs again? Maybe a 4th part? We never know.

AUD Peace March Turns Violent, Students Blame University Administrative Authorities – Edexlive https://milwaukeecountyfirst.com/aud-peace-march-turns-violent-students-blame-university-administrative-authorities-edexlive/ Sat, 23 Apr 2022 15:40:00 +0000 https://milwaukeecountyfirst.com/aud-peace-march-turns-violent-students-blame-university-administrative-authorities-edexlive/ Students belonging to SFI (Federation of Students of India) from Ambedkar University Delhi (AUD) had staged a peace march on 21st April 2022 to show their solidarity with those evicted from their homes in Jahangirpuri, Delhi, and to protest the general spread of violence in the region.

Students belonging to SFI (Federation of Students of India) from Ambedkar University Delhi (AUD) had staged a peace march on 21st April 2022 to show their solidarity with those evicted from their homes in Jahangirpuri, Delhi, and to protest the general spread of violence in the region. The march for peace, however, takes the form of a violent confrontation between the university authorities and the students.

While university authorities claimed that holding demonstrations over political issues was not allowed on campus, they were also against the posters the students had prepared to organize the march. Anil Sethumadhavan, Chairman of SFI AUD, said that while they were organizing the peace march, everything was fine at first. But then the clerk, overseer and other members of the administration came to disrupt their march, stating that the march had to be stopped because such a thing was not allowed. “We were ready to comply and had decided to just hold a rally and a discussion in front of the library. But they also had problems with the posters,” Anil said.

He explained that the authorities had tried to tear down the posters and even said that the student unions were not intended for the university ecosystem. “Take down the posters and banners. No political posters or banners are allowed. Organizations cannot hold rallies,” Anil recalled, quoting authorities. He also explained, “Confrontations like these are nothing new and have been happening for years. But this time, the authorities resorted to mistreatment. And that is not acceptable. He also said that the students had a calm conversation with the supervisor and the registrar, but they suddenly started bullying the students.

Taken by surprise
Commenting further on the incident, he said two students were knocked to the ground. “And many students who had participated in the march are suffering from severe body pain, which has made their parents extremely worried,” he added. He also said that everything was recorded on a video shot by the students at the time of the incident, in order to preserve the veracity of their statement against the university authorities.

“We were surprised and traumatized,” Anil said, referring to the treatment they received from authorities. “If a university tries to reduce or completely ban student organizations, it’s scary for the whole student community,” he said. “They didn’t even agree that we should organize a discussion in front of the library, against our posters. But we could not grant their request to throw away our posters, mainly for fear that if we listen to them every time, they will continue to use the power of violence against us. It has been going on for a long time,” he added.

The peace march was a method for students to show their solidarity with minorities. As for what the university said about the unfortunate violence, Anil said, “They didn’t say anything. It also did not affect the functioning of our university life. So even we haven’t taken any action yet. But we are planning to approach the Delhi government, relevant officials and ministers in particular, and get them to take action against members of the university administration. We have also planned other movements, but nothing specific. Nevertheless, we have predicted a Twitter storm today evening (April 23). »
