The emotional debate arose because of the anti-lynching law as Cory Booker objected to Rand Paul’s amendment



Paul holds up anti-lynching bill. See Harris and Booker's response.
When the memorial service for George Floyd began in Minnesota, Paul, who had passed popular bipartisan legislation to make the death penalty a federal crime, came to the Senate floor in Washington to add amendments to the law without the death penalty without trial and then passed it. He believes the bill was written too broadly and said that the amendment “will apply criminal penalties only to the lynching and not to other crimes.” The GOP senator then asked for unanimous approval to pass the bill with the amendment. However, both Harris and Booker opposed the effort and Booker objected.

“Senator Paul is now trying to undermine the bill that was passed – there is no reason for this, there is no reason for this,” Harris said.

In his emotional remarks, Booker said he felt “very raw today,” saying, “of all days we do this now when God, if this bill is passed today, what does it mean for America. That this body and that body have finally agreed. ”

“That will talk a lot for racial pain and generational wounds,” Booker said. Raising his voice, he continued, “I don’t need my colleague, Senator from Kentucky, to tell me about the lynching in this country. I stand in a museum in Montgomery, Alabama, and watch African-American families cry there. – stories about pregnant women being hanged in this country and their babies being removed while they are doing nothing. ”

Pointing to Paul, Booker said that he did not question Paul’s heart, but strongly disagreed with his actions.

“My colleague there, Rand Paul, was one of the first hands to tremble” on the floor of the Senate, Booker said. “He is my friend … but I am very raw today.”

“I am trying to change this law not because I consider capital punishment without lenient punishment, but because I take it seriously, and this law does not,” Paul said, arguing that “this bill will reduce the meaning of the lynching by define it broadly by including minor bruises or abrasion. Our country’s history of racial terrorism demands more seriousness from us than that. ”

Shortly after, GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski from Alaska came to the floor for a speech she had planned for weeks to give to women’s suffrage. He took a moment before his speech to talk about the debate he had just seen and to say a few words of his own about the state of the country.

“I just want you to know that I’m thankful that I’m here on the floor to hear privately. We can read words, but when we have the ability to hear and feel those words, their true meaning comes out,” Murkowski said to Booker and Harris.

Murkowski said he wanted to talk today because he felt too silent.

“I have been challenged by several people. I have been punished by some … from some very close friends who say ‘you are silent, Lisa. Why don’t you fix what we see?’ I have struggled with the right words.When a white woman was born and raised in Alaska with a special family, I could not feel the openness and rudeness that I had just heard expressed by my friends Cory and Kamala, I had not lived their lives “I can listen, and I can educate myself, and I can try to be a physician when we need to be healed.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
