FALLON / AFP   Dozens of freight cars are broken into every day on Los Angeles’s railways by thieves who take advantage of the trains’ stops to loot packages bought online, leaving thousands of gutted boxes and products that will never reach their destinations. The nation’s largest and most prestigious Black film festival is exploring options to reschedule its 30th annual celebration for later in the year, possibly, from April 19 to May 1 in Los Angeles. According to the tags found Friday by an AFP team on a track near the city center — which was easily accessible from nearby streets — many major US mail order and courier companies such as Amazon, Target, UPS, and FedEx are being hit by the thefts, which have exploded in recent months. DG of NGF, Asishana Okauru and wife, Ifueko Okauru, former Chairperson of FIRS For Mr Okauru, these programmes were planned for Igarra because, according to him, the community has helped him tremendously in his progress in life. The thieves wait until the long freight trains are immobilized on the tracks, and then climb onto the freight containers, whose locks they easily break with the help of bolt cutters. “The decision to postpone this year’s PAFF did not come easy because we were looking forward to celebrating our 30th anniversary in person with our community,” said Ayuko Babu, PAFF Executive Director.

Rail operator Union Pacific has seen a 160 percent rise in thefts in Los Angeles county since December 2020. Our primary concern is always the responsibility we feel towards our staff, artists, audience and filmmakers, who travel to Los Angeles from around the world, and for whom without them, there is no PAFF. His wife, Ifueko Omoigui-Okauru, the former chairperson of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, said the activities were planned for the community as a means to thank God for the life of a dear husband. “In October 2021 alone, the increase was 356 percent compared to October 2020,” UP said in a letter to the local authorities, seen by AFP. Packages spill from the open doors of shipping containers as a train passes through a section of Union Pacific train tracks littered with thousands of opened boxes and packages stolen from cargo shipping containers, targeted by thieves as the trains stop in downtown Los Angeles.” PAFF 2022 Celebrity Ambassador and festival co-founder actor, Danny Glover (The Colour Purple, Lethal Weapon) said, “it’s been over 30 years since we first travelled to FESPACO in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, and were inspired to replicate their celebration and promotion of Black films and Black filmmakers here in America. PHOTO: PATRICK T. Till late into the night, almost everyone deliberated over the day’s activities and re-strategised for the next day, a ritual they continued till the last day of the event. FALLON / AFP   The explosion in looting has been accompanied by an upsurge in “assaults and armed robberies of UP employees performing their duties moving trains,” the letter said.” The 30th annual PAFF will feature 150 new high-quality Black films from the U. To cut fuel supply to the bandits who ride in convoys of motorcycles to attack communities, the governor said only two designated fuel stations in the banditry-affected LGAs can now sell fuel, and of not more than N5,000 to a person.

The phenomenon spiked recently with the peak of activity linked to Christmas shopping. According to figures reported by UP, more than 90 containers were vandalised every day on average in Los Angeles County in the last quarter of 2021., Africa, the Caribbean, South America, Europe, the South Pacific, Canada, and increasingly, Asia. Donations to the widows in Igarra community With this passion, the events commenced with donations of rice, oil and other foodstuff to over 500 widows and some other households. To combat the trend, Union Pacific says it has strengthened surveillance measures — including drones and other detection systems — and recruited more security staff for its tracks and convoys. Police and security agents have arrested more than 100 people in the last three months of 2021 for “trespassing and vandalising” Union Pacific trains. In this article. “While criminals are being caught and arrested, charges are reduced to a misdemeanor or petty offense, and the person is back on the streets in less than 24 hours after paying a nominal fine,” said a spokesman for the rail operator. The youth were taught the secrets to success, the importance of making right choices, the importance of education, alternative career options, and how to become a positive influence in the community.

“In fact, criminals boast to our officers that there is no consequence,” he said. Union Pacific wrote to the Los Angeles County attorney’s office at the end of December asking them to reconsider a leniency policy introduced at the end of 2020 for such offenses. The operator estimates that damages from such thefts in 2021 amounted to some $5 million, adding that the amount in claims and losses “does not include respective losses to our impacted customers” or the impact on Union Pacific’s operations and the entire Los Angeles County supply chain. After the training, Mr Okauru donated two cameras to the participants who were divided into two groups. AFP .
