“Strong consensus in Brussels today,” Zarif said in a Twitter post after the meeting, Tasnim News Agency reported. Iran is complying with the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and the Iranian people have every right to all its dividends, he added. The top diplomat reiterated that any move that undermines the accord is unacceptable and that the “E3 and EU [are] fully aware that Iran’s continued compliance [is] conditioned on full compliance by the US.” The European officials who attended the meeting also underlined support for preserving the Iran nuclear deal. European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, insisted that the nuclear agreement “is working” and that it is vital to preserve it. “The deal is working, it is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear program in check and under close surveillance,” Mogherini said.

The tactics changed too. While there were sit-ins and kneel-ins and demonstrations, the SCLC also encouraged an economic boycott of the city. Birmingham’s economic heart, its shopping district, was crippled when black residents refused to shop in segregated stores. Boycott organizers patrolled the streets to shame black residents into toeing the line. The protests were designed to force a crisis point, and Connor only aided the effort. When business took down “Whites Only” signs, the avowed racist threatened to pull their licenses. On Good Friday, King was jailed for his 13th time for more than a week. Using the margins of scrap paper smuggled into his cell, King drafted his “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” among the clearest representations of his philosophy.Children provided the movement with some of its most powerful images, and the SCLC and King encouraged students to skip school to join sit-ins and marches. On May 2, the Children’s Crusade saw the arrest of hundreds of students in Birmingham, some under the age of 10, who sang and prayed as they awaited arrest. The New York Times compared the scene to a “school picnic” as they were transported to the city’s jail by every available city vehicle. Within hours, the prison was at capacity, filled with hundreds of school-age children.

(Credit: Underwood Archives/Getty Images) Time has a way of sanitizing history. When Muhammad Ali died in 2016, he was revered as if he had always been beloved. Yet Ali was vilified for refusing to fight in the Vietnam War. Similarly, many would have us believe that King was always held in the esteem that he is now. Yet William Sullivan, head of the FBI’s domestic intelligence division during the King surveillance program, said: “We must mark him now, if we have not done so before, as the most dangerous Negro of the future in this Nation from the standpoint of communism, the Negro and national security.”

“I’m so worried,” Cantin’s mother, Kathleen, said by phone, her voice breaking.Among the adult Medicaid enrollees who were not working, most report major impediments to their ability to work.  Even though individuals qualifying for Medicaid on the basis of a disability through SSI were excluded from this group, more than one-third of those not working reported that illness or disability was the primary reason for not working. SSI disability criteria are stringent and can take a long time to establish. People can have physical and/or mental health disabilities that interfere with their ability to work, or to work full-time, without those impairments rising to the SSI level of severity. Other analysis indicates that nearly nine in ten (88%) non-SSI Medicaid adults who reports not working due to illness or disability has a functional limitation, and more than two-thirds (67%) have two or more chronic conditions such as arthritis or asthma.3

The British foreign minister, Boris Johnson, said that so far no-one has come up with a better alternative. “We greatly value the JCPOA, the nuclear deal with Iran, we think it is a considerable diplomatic accomplishment,” Johnson said, stressing that “Iran is in compliance with this agreement according to the International Atomic Energy Agency.” German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Europe wanted to protect the deal “against every possible undermining decision”. Iran and P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France, and Germany), also known as E3+3, concluded the historic accord in July 2015 and implemented it in January 2016. Under the agreement, certain limits have been put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all nuclear-related bans against Tehran. In all of its reports since coming into force of the JCPOA, the IAEA has verified the non-diversion of declared nuclear material in Iran as well as the Islamic Republic’s commitment to the nuclear deal. Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump was to decide on Friday whether to waive nuclear sanctions on Iran or effectively end the US participation in the nuclear agreement. Western media reported early on Friday that Trump had decided to extend Iran’s sanctions relief. In October, Trump said he would not certify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement that was negotiated under the previous administration because Tehran was “in violation of the spirit” of the accord. The Trump administration asked the US Congress to come up with a solution to address “many flaws” in the deal, such as existing sunset provisions and exclusion of Iran’s ballistic missile program.   US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last week that Trump would be inclined to authorize another sanctions waiver if he felt that real progress was being made toward the changes he demanded in October.
