Oxfam to close high street shops in response to pandemic

first_img  701 total views,  2 views today Oxfam has announced that it will be closing its high street shops in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.Oxfam has around 600 high street shops in the UK and around 20,000 Oxfam shop volunteers. The shops will close at the end of business on Saturday 21 March to protect the health of its staff, volunteers and customers, and remain shut until the risk reduces.Oxfam’s Deputy Trading Director, Anne Webb said:“It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to shut our shops until the danger of the coronavirus has eased.“But it’s absolutely the right thing to do as the safety of our staff, volunteers and shoppers comes first.  Some of our volunteers are elderly, and especially vulnerable to the infection, and we are acutely conscious of our responsibilities towards them.”Oxfam is asking the public not to leave donations outside shops after they close but is planning to operate hubs where people can deposit them. More details on which will be announced in due course.In the last financial year, Oxfam shops raised £17.3 million after costs – contributing £1.4m a month to the organisation’s work.

Black Lives Matter solidarity: No Pride without justice!

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Fifty-one years ago cops assaulted and arrested LGBTQ2+ people — mostly Black and Latinx people — at the Stonewall Bar in New York City. That police raid and resulting queer resistance sparked three days of rebellion and ignited the modern LGBTQ2+ movement in the U.S. and around the world. Leading the street battles against the cops were trans women of color like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. That June rebellion was the origin of the current LGBTQ2+ Pride Month.In front of Syracuse, N.Y., City Hall, June 6.On June 2, NYC cops were again beating and arresting queer people of color at the Stonewall Inn. Hundreds had gathered there as part of the rebellion against police brutality and racism following the police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis.Black Lives Matter protesters united at the original site of the rebellion to emphasize that the heavy hand of police violence falls disproportionately on queer people of color, particularly on trans women. A third of Black trans women who have interaction with police report that cops always assume they are sex workers. (hrc.org,  2019) Nearly 90 percent of trans women assumed by cops to be sex workers suffer police harassment and abuse, including verbal, physical and sexual assaults. (transequality.org, December 2017) At the June 2 action, people called out the names of Nina Pop, a trans woman of color murdered May 3 in Sikeston, Mo.; and Tony McDade, a Black trans man shot and killed by police in Tallahassee, Fla., two days after cops killed Floyd. As the crowd began to disperse shortly after the 8 p.m. curfew, cops attacked and inflicted multiple injuries, including on ACT UP-NY member Jason Rosenberg whose arm was broken.In Oakland, Calif., on June 5, a memorial to Tony McDade, killed by police on May 27 in Tallahassee, Fla. On May 31, the Detroit Queer Activist Coalition held a similar protest focusing on police brutality against LGBTQ2+ people of color, especially Black and Indigenous people. Using the city’s monument to the great Black boxer, Joe Louis, as a platform, DQAC founder Dorian Minley announced demands: an end to policing as it exists in the U.S. and “an end to second-class citizenship, white nationalism, class stratification, wage slavery and violent ostracism from the greater society.” (tinyurl.com/y8bd6plc) Queer liberation marches for Black lives The commitment by the larger LGBTQ2+ community that Black Lives Matter was dramatically affirmed on June 3 when the Los Angeles Pride organization, Christopher Street West, announced that, instead of canceling its annual June march because of the coronavirus pandemic, LA Pride would be a Black Lives Matter solidarity march. A CSW statement read in part, “It is our moral imperative to honor the legacy of Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, who bravely led the Stonewall uprising, by standing in solidarity with the Black community against systemic racism.”  (tinyurl.com/yawua2tf) On June 4, the Reclaim Pride Coalition of New York City also announced a Queer Liberation March for Black Lives and Against Police Brutality for the traditional last Sunday in June. The RPC press release emphasized: “Black Americans and their children have suffered disproportionate abuse at the hands of the white supremacist power structure. The most marginalized among Black communities — like Trans people, Immigrants, Disabled people, Deaf and Hard of Hearing people and Neurologically Diverse people — live under an even greater risk.” ‘Solidarity matters now more than ever’Strong expressions of support for the Black Lives Matter uprising have come from LGBTQ2+ communities, from labor organizations to gay bars. In D.C. on May 31, the offices of Pride at Work, an AFL-CIO-affiliated group, suffered damage when the building that housed PAW was partially burned during the maelstrom of the protests.PAW Executive Director Jerame Davis said the next day: “Black lives matter more than any building or its contents. LGBTQ people are found in every community, including Black and Brown communities, and when our communities are under attack, like the rest of the labor movement, we stand up and fight back. We know there can be no peace without justice and that our rights weren’t won easily or peacefully. Solidarity matters now more than ever.” (lgbtqnation.com, June 1)In the streets of Philadelphia on June 6.LGBTQ2+ bars have shown solidarity during the BLM marches — and braved retaliation from the cops. On June 1, in downtown Raleigh, N.C., workers at the Ruby Deluxe Bar set up a first aid station in the parking lot and began passing out water bottles and granola bars to protesters. Suddenly cops from the Wake County Sheriff’s Office showed up and ordered everyone to leave — including the bar owner — and fired shotgun flash-bangs at the owner and workers. (truthout.org, June 3)  On June 1 in Des Moines, Iowa, workers at the Blazing Saddle bar saw that cops were teargassing local BLM marchers. The workers put together first aid backpacks and went outside to tend to protesters in “agonizing pain.” The bar’s security camera footage shows what happened next: A van pulls up and armed cops in riot gear pour out. They hold employees at gun point at the door while searching the bar. Cops eventually arrested three people, including one who needed medical care. (tinyurl.com/y9s57chz)Cops Out of Pride!The continuing crisis of police, white supremacist violence against Black people and other people of color, and the impact of that violence on LGBTQ2+ communities is intensifying the cry for “Cops Out of Pride!” Arrests by cops and imprisonment are generally wreaking havoc in queer communities. A 2019 American Bar Association report stated that LGBTQ2+ people in the U.S. are incarcerated at a rate three times higher than the general population. (tinyurl.com/yadqsjkc)In Indianapolis on June 4, the board of directors of Indy Pride announced it would no longer have a police presence at any of its events, including the Indy Pride Festival. The directors’ statement read, “The first Pride marches were protests against police brutality led by Brown and Black people. This is the time for our community to listen to communities affected by violence, to protest with them, and to support them in all ways possible.” (tinyurl.com/ydhtt8lb)last_img read more

HR must put a knowledge management spin on role

first_img Previous Article Next Article HR should act to end the perception that it has failed to rise to the knowledge management challenge.That is the message of research revealed exclusively to Personnel Today this week on creating a knowledge management culture.The report by management development institute Roffey Park found in many organisations it is business or IT teams rather than HR that have taken the lead in developing strategy.The result, according to report author Christina Evans, is that cultural aspects are too often overlooked.Evans said, “It is about saying to HR staff that they need to get on and identify their existing practices where they can put a knowledge management spin on things, such as inductions.“Doing this gives credibility to HR within the business. It can be done. It is about getting the focus and making sure it links in with everything and is not just an adjunct.“In many organisations they have been proactive but there has been criticism that they have failed to take the lead.”Evans added that having a main board director to provide leadership and champion the cause of knowledge management within the organisation is critical to success.There should also be a bottom-up approach to ensure “buy in” at every level.Evans added, “The challenge for organisations is to create the cultural conditions within which knowledge is valued and shared voluntarily among all groups of employees.”Sally Hulks, head of HR at KPMG, said her team had been working to integrate HR and knowledge management for two years. “I think HR has hung back from taking the lead on knowledge management. It is not an unreasonable criticism,” she said.“In a lot of organisations it has become a bit of an IT specialism and HR needs to reclaim it.www.roffeypark.com Comments are closed.
