The Burmese military junta has promised to release 5,636 political prisoners

BarcelonaThe military junta, which rules Burma with an iron fist, has promised to release 5,636 political prisoners convicted of participating in protests against the February 1 coup. This was announced by General Ming Aung Hlaing on Monday on the occasion of the Thadingyut Festival on October 20th. The measure of grace comes after the countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) expel the regime from next week’s summit.

The general who led the military coup reiterated a five-point plan to restore democracy and again accused the opposition grouped in the so-called government of national unity and armed groups of sabotaging international peace initiatives. “Nobody cares about their violence and they demand that we solve the problem,” criticized the military Asean.

The opposition vetoed the regional authority and demanded that it be recognized as a legitimate interlocutor. On Friday, a regime spokesman blamed US and EU “foreign interference” for the board’s expulsion. Asean has invited “a non-political representative” to the planned venue for Burma.

Meanwhile, former President Aung San Suu Kyi, who won the 2015 election, continues to face closed-door corruption charges by the regime. His lawyer, Khin Maung Zaw, has complained that he is not allowed to speak to the press shortly after revealing that the Nobel Peace Prize laureate was “exhausted” from so many legal proceedings.

UN Human Rights Commissioner Michelle Bachelet criticized that “suffering and violence in the country devastate development prospects and threaten the failure of the state or a civil war”.

In a televised address in civilian clothes, the coup general blamed “terrorist groups” for the violence. He invited the Asean representative to visit the country as agreed, but said without elaborating that some of his terms were non-negotiable.

The government defends a regional agreement to improve conditions for manure collection workers

PalmaGovernment spokesman and Minister for Economic Model, Tourism and Labor, Iago Negueruela, defended the need for a regional agreement this Monday to improve the working conditions of the workers in the manure collection, as he said after the government council meeting. Negueruela, too, thought it logical that the strike created tension and admitted that negotiations were complicated because “several things are being negotiated at the same time” and each councilor has its own contract.

Negueruela joked about the PP’s criticism of its presence at the Congress the PSOE held in Valencia over the weekend, noting that many of the current problems facing manure collectors were due to the “PP recruitment model” of derogatory working conditions is based. The minister also pointed out that two directors-general of his ministry were involved in the negotiations and stressed that the government in particular had promoted the existence of a regional agreement.

The Labor Manager noted that in some contracts workers were paid “at the limit of the minimum wage” and recalled that the last legislature had already worked on the inclusion of social clauses in public procurement. In the event that the manure collection is affected, a regional agreement must first be made, without which it is not possible to include the above clauses. “When reforming public procurement law, the state agreements have to be respected, but we haven’t, and the price is simply assessed without considering the employment situation,” he commented. “That is why it is so important that an employer is set up and that there is an industry agreement for the contracts to be linked,” he added. “An agreement is standardized beyond the minimum wage.”

Negueruela complained that “the PP is not talking about workers, but about the fact that manure needs to be removed”. The problem at the moment, according to the city councilor, is “that people who remove manure must have decent wages”. “It is negotiated even though it does not have the best government framework. We are looking for a regional framework so that each city council can refer to it and tell their contracts that they need to build on it,” he added. In any case, the councilor was cautious about the CCOO gathering this Monday as a preliminary agreement was thrown on the ground on Friday and it was decided to continue the strike.

    PalmaEmaya has been using more pressurized water to clean the streets of Palma since the beginning of the month after creating a special afternoon service, according to a statement by the Ajutament de Palma on Monday. The company also plans to step up weed removal, leaf gathering and pruning mechanically and manually, and all of this can be done thanks to the addition of 50 people who will be dedicated to these tasks. It is also planned to install 600 new containers between this year and 2022.

    Of the 50 people, 18 belong to the water purification group. Four teams were formed, consisting of a driver of the mill who transports the water and the operators who carry the hose and the maximum blower. This task is carried out every evening and makes it possible to walk through all the streets of the neighborhoods between the avenues and Via de Cintura once a month. These teams will also be involved in collecting leaves if necessary.

    Nine more people will be pulling weeds. This will strengthen the existing clearing brigade, which previously comprised 25 people who cleared weeds 200 kilometers from the streets and sidewalks of 30 districts in Palma in September. In addition to the new employees, the cleaning service will also be strengthened by a new stripper, who will be installed before the end of the year, and 26 grinding machines for the beginning of next year.

    By the end of the year, a total of 200 120-liter containers will be set up in the central area of ​​Palma. The aim is to replace some containers with a smaller capacity (50 liters) and also to set up new collection points. In this way, the total collection capacity of the center is increased by more than 30%, as the capacity is doubled in some areas with currently fewer staff.

    The areas where waste capacity will be greater will be around Oms, La Rambla, Via Roma, Plaça d’Espanya, L’Olivar, Sindicat, La Calatrava, Passeig Mallorca and Avingudes. These bins are emptied Monday through Saturday in the morning and evening shift. On Sundays and public holidays, emptying takes place in the mornings and evenings on the busiest axes or during special campaigns and events. At the beginning of 2022, 400 more rubbish bins will be installed in various parts of the city, especially along the coast, such as Cala Major, El Molinar, Cala Gamba, Can Pastilla and Playa de Palma.
