Amy Coney Barrett confirmed as Democrats warn of affront to democracy – live
by Tom McCarthy on October 27, 2020 at 7:44 am
Donald Trump hosted Barrett for swearing-in outside the White House, administered by Clarence ThomasFull story: Barrett confirmed in major victory for conservativesWhy Barrett’s addition to court may undermine climate fight 7.44am GMTHumanity is said to have just 10 years left to start seriously tackling the climate crisis before passing the ‘point of no return’ with multiple-degree temperature increases, rising sea levels and increasingly disastrous wildfires, hurricanes, floods and droughts predicted.Scientists say the US is far off the path of what is necessary for the nation and the world to avoid catastrophic global heating, particularly as in the past four years Donald Trump has shredded environmental protections for American lands, animals and people. 7.12am GMTThe US supreme court has sided with Republicans to prevent Wisconsin from counting mail-in ballots that are received after election day. From our report: In a 5-3 ruling, the justices on Monday refused to reinstate a lower court order that called for mailed ballots to be counted if they are received up to six days after the 3 November election. A federal appeals court had already put that order on hold.The ruling awards a victory for Republicans in their crusade against expanding voting rights and access. It also came just moments before the Republican-controlled Senate voted to confirm Amy Coney Barrett, a victory for the right that locks in a conservative majority on the nation’s highest court for years to come.Those States want to avoid the chaos and suspicions of impropriety that can ensue if thousands of absentee ballots flow in after election day and potentially flip the results of an election. And those States also want to be able to definitively announce the results of the election on election night, or as soon as possible thereafter. Moreover, particularly in a Presidential election, counting all the votes quickly can help the State promptly resolve any disputes, address any need for recounts, and begin the process of canvassing and certifying the election results in an expeditious manner. In his WI concurrenceJustice Kavanaugh cites Vermont as an example of a state that did not change its election rules during the pandemic. But that's not true? Vermont legislature authorized SoS to automatically mail a ballot to all registered voters https://t.co/opDdEz78Mg pic.twitter.com/3FrwEp30CyMailing every voter a ballot by 10/1 factored into our decision to stick with an election day receipt deadline instead of postmark. We also authorized ballot processing 30 days out. Those are our VT specific solutions, but other states needs are different. Count. Every. Vote.Take it from me: the only way to avoid Bush v Gore II is to win by enough votes that 2020 never gets to the Supreme Court. Don't let the Court have this power: all of us, at the ballot box, need to decide this election. https://t.co/KfkHUWk9Fp Continue reading...
'Just 15 minutes out every day': a teenage prisoner's life during Covid
by Harriet Grant on October 27, 2020 at 7:30 am
One young inmate tells how being locked up alone for hours and not being able to see his family affected his mental healthUK Covid policy for children in detention ‘cruel and inhumane’, says UN expertFor five months, 16-year-old Sean* spent around 23 hours a day in his cell. He tried to get through the time by doing puzzles and calling his lawyer, asking her again and again to help him get bail.When he arrived at the secure training centre (STC) it was already in lockdown. He was just 15. “I had to go into total isolation for the first two weeks, just 15 minutes out every day. It was my first time in custody and at first I thought this is OK, it’s a chance to slow things down. But after two weeks it began to affect me. You couldn’t do anything. I could hear voices calling on the wing, but I only saw the guard.” Continue reading...
UK Covid policy for children in detention 'cruel and inhumane', says UN expert
by Harriet Grant on October 27, 2020 at 7:30 am
Solitary confinement to stop virus spread increases risk of self-harm and suicide and could have a lifelong impact, M0J warned‘Just 15 minutes out every day’: a teenager prisoner’s life during CovidThe UK government’s policy of allowing children in detention to be locked alone in their cells for up to 23 hours a day under emergency Covid-19 measures is “extreme and inhumane” and could lead to lifelong mental health damage, according to the UN special rapporteur on torture and leading child health experts.Since March, facilities have been able to keep children as young as 12 confined alone in their cells for all but around 40 minutes a day. The measures, which were put in place to stop potential Covid-19 outbreaks, affect around 500 under 18-year-olds in youth detention and another 4,000 18-21-year-olds held in adult prisons.
