Kritik an Anti-Terror-Datei: Hessische Regelung zur Rasterfahndung soll verfassungswidrig sein

Nach Auffassung des hessischen Datenschutzbeauftragten Professor Michael Ronellenfitsch ist die hessische Regelung zur Rasterfahndung nicht verfassungskonform. Er verweist hierbei auf die Überprüfung der nordrhein-westfälischen Regelung zur Rasterfahndung durch das Bundesverfassungsgericht. Die Kernaussage des Bundesverfassungsgerichts heißt laut Ronellenfitsch: "Ein solcher Eingriff in das Recht auf informationelle Selbstbestimmung ist nur dann angemessen, wenn der Eingriff vor der Schwelle einer hinreichend konkreten Gefahr für bedrohte hochrangige Verfassungsgüter abhängig gemacht wird." Im Vorfeld einer konkreten Gefahr scheide die Rasterfahndung aus. Der Hessische Datenschutzbeauftragte betont, dass aufgrund dieser Entscheidung die hessische Regelung zur Rasterfahndung geändert werden müsse, "da sie gerade als Vorfeldbefugnis ausgestattet ist". Professor Ronellenfitsch empfiehlt ausdrücklich, den Gesetzentwurf der FDP-Fraktion zur Rasterfahndung anzunehmen, da er die Vor gaben des Bundesverfassungsgerichts berücksichtige. Ronellenfitsch hält außerdem auch die im Dezember beschlossene Gesetz zur Errichtung gemeinsamer Dateien von Polizeibehörden und Nachrichtendiensten des Bundes und der Länder - Grundlage für die so genannte Anti-Terror-Datei - für problematisch.

Ohne gesetzliche Grundlage keine Hartz IV Sanktion

Sanktionen gegen Hartz-IV-Empfänger ohne gesetzliche Grundlage willkürlich!

Arbeitsagenturen (ARGEN) dürfen die Pflichten von Hartz-IV Empfänger/innen nicht einseitig festlegen und bei Verstößen die Leistungen kürzen. Das hessische Landessozialgericht in Darmstadt gab einer 24jährigen Frau aus Offenbach recht. Das geht aus einem Urteil (AZ: L 7 AS 288/06 ER), dass am Mittwoch veröffentlicht wurde, hervor. Das Gericht urteilte eindeutig: "Für Leistungskürzungen ist eine gesetzliche Grundlage erforderlich."

Hartz IV: Ein-Euro-Jobber und 1. Arbeitsmarkt

1 Euro Job und der erste Arbeitsmarkt

Bundesweit und auch in Bochum wird davon gesprochen, dass ca. 15 % der 1-Euro-JobberInnen im Anschluss an eine solche "Massnahme" eine sozialversicherungspflichtige Beschäftigung fänden. Das entspricht nicht unseren Erfahrungen aus den Einzelberatungen, Volkshochschulkursen und Seminaren und Vorträgen bei Trägern solcher Massnahmen. Allein in dieser Woche wurden so mehr als 25 Betroffene über ihre Rechte unterrichtet. Ergebnis: zwei davon im Anschluss"in Arbeit", allerdings niemand davon durch Aktivitäten der ARGE – von daher käme nie etwas.

Worthing fights three mobile masts

MOBILE phone mast anger is brewing across Worthing, with three plans in the pipeline.

Findon Valley Residents' Association is starting its campaign against T-Mobile's plans to install a 36ft high mast at the junction of Findon Road and Cissbury Avenue.

People living near Worthing Football Club's ground in Woodside Road have to start their protests again, as Hutchison wants to upgrade its 44ft high 2G mast to a 56ft 3G monster.

This comes two weeks after a controversial T-Mobile scheme was approved for the ground.

Campaigners are still fighting a 33ft mast in St Andrew's Road, West Tarring, again from T-Mobile.

For more on these campaigns see Thursday's Worthing Herald.

Education is only one of the areas where good intentions have proven less than sufficient to cure the ills of society.

Has a nobler thought ever been conceived in human mind than the desire to see America’s offspring properly prepared to face an ever-changing world?

In many cases, drivers will not even know they have been punished, because police do not have to stop them to issue penalty notices.

One Out of Six Americans Depend on Programs for Poor

The welfare state is bigger than ever despite a decade of policies designed to wean poor people from public aid. The number of families receiving cash benefits from welfare has plummeted since the government imposed time limits on the payments a decade ago. But other programs for the poor, including Medicaid, food stamps and disability benefits, are bursting with new enrollees.

The science is clear, manmade changes in climate are being felt, and the electorate's demand for action is growing. Though unlikely just a few months ago, a strong global agreement by 2010, one that will set a path for action for decades to come, now stands a good chance of being implemented."

Mietobergrenzen für Hartz-IV Singles bedeuten oft Obdachlosigkeit

Mietobergrenzen bei Hartz IV, immer wieder heftig diskutiert und Bestandteil unzähliger Klagen in bundesdeutschen Sozialgerichten. Dabei könnte es so einfach sein. Städte und Kommunen müssen verpflichtet werden, ihre Mietobergrenzen detailliert und für Jedermann zugänglich zu veröffentlichen. Diejenigen, die dieser Verpflichtung nicht nachkommen, sollten alle Kosten der Unterkunft - ungeachtet der Angemessenheit - in voller Höhe auferlegt bekommen. Zudem müssen sich die Mietobergrenzen an dem verfügbaren Wohnraum und der Wohngeldtabelle messen lassen.

Dazu bedarf es aber der Veränderungen in den §§ 22 und 27 des SGB II und auch den Mut, diese endlich zu spezifizieren.

Mietobergrenzen sind gerade für Singles im SGB II ein potentieller Stolperstein in die Obdachlosigkeit. Die von den Städten und Kommunen festgesetzten Obergrenzen, aber auch deren willkürliche Senkungen führen dazu, dass gerade immer mehr Singles schwerwiegende Probleme bei der Wohnungssuche haben. Im sozialen aber auch freien Wohnungsbau wurden Wohnräume im Bereich von 45 m² über Jahre hinweg vernachlässigt.

Für Leistungsempfänger sind Mietobergrenzen nur in einem persönlichen Gespräch mit dem Sachbearbeiter zu erfahren.

Dies muss und sollte sich ändern!

Willkürliche Angemessenheitsrichtlinien gerade bei KDU (Kosten der Unterkunft) dürfen keine Einzelfallentscheidungen mehr bleiben. Wenn von politischer Seite immer wieder steigende Mehrausgaben im Bereich KDU zu lesen sind, so muss endlich auch Klarheit bestehen, um welche Kosten es sich detailliert handelt.

Auch Vermieter sind oft im unklaren, ob die von ihnen geforderten Mieten überhaupt von Leistungsempfängern genehmigt werden. Wer zuerst eine richterliche Entscheidung vor der Anmietung für eine angemessene KDU abwarten muss, der wird mit Sicherheit den Wohnraum niemals anmieten können, der zeitlich zur Diskussion stand, weil kein Vermieter seinen Wohnraum ungenutzt stehen lassen kann. Auch die Anmietung und Entrichtung der Differenz zur willkürlich genehmigten KDU, ist für Singles unmöglich.

Hier bleibt oftmals gerade in Notsituationen nur die Obdachlosigkeit und ihre Folgen. Selbst Wohnraum in städtischen Unterkünften ist nur selten verfügbar und wenn, dann nur in einen Zustand, der als menschenunwürdig betrachtet werden kann ( Mehrbettzimmer - Ungeziefer - etc. ).

Nur wenn endlich, sowohl von Seiten der Gesetzgebung und der Städten und Kommunen, klare Richtlinien vorliegen, könnten Sozialgerichte entlastet und Menschen geholfen werden.

Während in anderen EU Nationen ein Recht auf Wohnraum [**1] besteht, scheint in Deutschland gerade für Hartz-IV Singles nur ein Recht auf Obdachlosigkeit zu bestehen.

Surprise over phone mast victory

DAN GRIMMER
27 February 2007 09:11

Families fighting plans for a mobile phone mast won an unexpected victory when councillors went against the recommendation of officers to reject the plans.

More than 80 people wrote to South Norfolk Council to object to plans for an 11.7 metre T-Mobile mast on land opposite the Crown pub in Norwich Road, Costessey.

Families living close to the proposed mast were concerned about the visual impact such a large structure would have in the area, while there were also fears about the possible heath effects on those living closest to the mast and on pupils at nearby Costessey Infant School.

But despite the strength of feeling against the mast planning officers at South Norfolk Council had made recommendations to the planning committee that it be approved when they met yesterday. However, councillors decided to reject the proposal because it would have been an eyesore - to the delight of campaigners, including South Norfolk councillor Tim East.

Mr East said: “I'm absolutely delighted that the planning committee unanimously decided to reject T-Mobile's application for a phone mast at Norwich Road on the grounds that they thought it was detrimental to the visual amenities of the area.”

Pauline Wilkinson, who has lived on Norwich Road, Costessey, with her husband John for more than 30 years, said she was surprised the mast had ever been recommended for approval given all the opposition to it. “It's a very busy area close to a number of shops, with cars, a pedestrian crossing and all the associated furniture, two large trees - I just couldn't see how sticking something else there was going to improve the area. I don't really see that there's a need for a mast there.”

Mrs Wilkinson said she had been concerned about the possible health effects on people living in the area, particularly the children who went to the school on Beaumont Road.

As the Evening News reported earlier this month, the small strip of grass where the mast was to be sited had been earmarked by parish councillors as a natural spot for a village sign and flower beds to create an attractive centre for New Costessey. The Evening News has campaigned against the installation of mobile phone masts near homes and schools until it is proved they are safe through our Put Masts on Hold campaign.

Glimmers of Hope in Iran Report?

By Eric Hundman

Amid all the gloom, there were a few encouraging facts buried in the IAEA report. I don’t intend to discount the severity of the Iranian situation or how difficult it will be to stop Iran’s nuclear program – rather, I’d like to provide some context for the debate on how to proceed.
