“The influence of the NRA has been so powerful that the organization was left unchecked for decades as top executives diverted millions into their own pockets,” said state attorney general Letitia James.

The NRA is plagued with fraud and abuse, which is why we seek to dissolve the NRA, because no organization is above the law”, He added.

According to the prosecutor, LaPierre, who led the NRA for nearly three decades, and three other senior officials of that organization, founded in 1871, used member funds and donations as their “Personal piggy bank”.

And they spent tens of millions of dollars on themselves and on accomplices violating the laws that govern non-profit organizations, the official said. The four of them “They basically looted their assets”James said, and they rendered the once-wealthy group that pumped millions into Republican campaigns virtually insolvent.

The NRA is plagued with fraud and abuse, which is why we seek to dissolve the NRA, because no organization is above the law

In a statement, the NRA accused James of filing a lawsuit to “Score political points“In view of the elections in three months.

This was a baseless and premeditated attack on our organization and the Second Amendment freedoms it fights to defend.”Said NRA President Carolyn Meadows.

In addition, he added that the NRA filed a counterclaim yesterday accusing James.
For decades, the NRA has represented millions of gun owners and advocates across the US, fighting with substantial success to weaken and eliminate laws that imposed controls, based on the Second Amendment to the Constitution.



In politics, the NRA backed candidates who aligned with its views and hit those who supported gun regulation.

LaPierre became one of the main men of power in relation to the issue in Washington and played a major role in the 2016 election of Donald Trump, whose sons, Eric and Donald Jr, are members and participate in events of the NRA.

Asked about the lawsuit, Trump said at the White House that it was “something terrible.” And he added: “I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life.”.

James said LaPierre illegally used funds from the NRA to pay for private jets to take his family on luxurious vacations to the Bahamas, and to transport other relatives across the country. In addition, he charged the NRA with African safaris and even his personal golf membership, something that was not officially planned.

He also maintained with funds from the association his own travel consultant for $ 26,500 per month in Los Angeles, although the NRA has its own travel agent.

According to James, Stone It also accepted luxury gifts and yacht charters from NRA vendors, and a $ 17 million retirement package was awarded without approval from the association’s board.

The court filing indicates that many of these abuses were endorsed by the other three defendants, all recruited by LaPierre.

Among them, former NRA treasurer Wilson Phillips, who is accused of hiring himself as a consultant to the organization for 1.8 US $ million, and hiding tens of millions in expenses for NRA executives, such as payments to the public relations contractor, Ackerman Queen.

“I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life.

Also indicted were General Counsel John Frazer, and former Chief of Staff Joshua Powell.

The prosecutor denied that she acted out of political motivation. But she said the state has only forced two other NGOs to close in recent years, one of them, the Trump Foundation.

James’ impeachment comes as the NRA, while financially weakened, was expected to pump large sums into the November general election.

A priori, given that the power of the NRA, it is believed that the legal battle could drag on for years.

The Washington-based Violence Policy Center said it is confident the lawsuit will make “at last“Hold the NRA accountable after years of focusing on” defending the interests of arms manufacturers and enriching their leaders. “

How to avoid homelessness for the homeless?

It is a completely atypical period that we have just gone through. To prevent the homeless from being massively affected by the epidemic, the State funded, during the confinement, a very large number of emergency accommodation places. He first extended the winter break, until May 31 and then until July 10, which had the effect of keeping the approximately 15,000 spaces available during the winter. It has also created nearly 20,000 additional places, including 12 to 13,000 at the hotel.

“This is approximately 35,000 additional places compared to the same period last year, which represents a very significant effort”, recognizes Florent Gueguen, director of the Federation of Health Actors. “This had a very positive impact since at the national level, the number of calls made to 115 decreased by more than 70%. I have been following these figures since 2012 and they have never been so good. “ Logically, the number of unmet accommodation requests has also decreased. « In many medium-sized cities, we have almost reached the zero homeless objective. This shows that there is no fatality and that if we want to give ourselves the means, we can solve the problem of the homeless ”, he concludes.

A significant improvement for families

However, this picture is not as positive everywhere. Certain departments such as Isère, Gironde and Nord, which have kept rates of “unsupported requests” above 90%, have made little progress. In addition, single men were housed less often. And all those who no longer call 115 remain outside the radars. But, for families, things have improved significantly. In Paris, which had a record number of street children at the end of 2019, the number of unmet requests for families fell below 200, while it was close to 800 at the start of March.

It remains to be seen what will happen from July 10, the date of the end of the state of health emergency and the extension of the winter break. Associations fear that many of these places will disappear. The problem is both budgetary and land. Financially, the amending finance law provided for an additional 200 million euros, an increase of 10% of the budget, but these credits must cover the additional costs already allocated to the management of the crisis. But it will also be necessary to anticipate the return to normal activity of hotels, holiday centers or student residences used during the period.

If, at the national level, the Ministry of Housing “Do not note any significant drop in hotel availability”, in Seine-Saint-Denis, this movement seems to have already started. From the second half of May, 115 de Seine-Saint-Denis “Observes an increase in unsuccessful requests for the benefit of people previously taken care of at the hotel”, according to a note from the Integrated Reception and Orientation Service 93. This one mentionse “1,351 individual requests” for which “The shelter could not be continued”, 65% of which are families with children. Since then, 270 have been relocated, but 95 remain unresolved. « If the entire fleet is not maintained, we will go from a health crisis to a humanitarian crisis ”, alert Florent Gueguen, in unison with the other associations.

“Relaunching mobility towards sustainable housing”

Housing Minister Julien Denormandie seems to have heard them. In a circular to the prefects dated June 3, he asked for“Avoid any delivery to the dry street”. In particular, “Mobility must be relaunched towards sustainable housing”, indicates his cabinet, where it is stated that the prefects have set the objective of making 3,000 HLM allocations in June and July. The creation of family pensions and rental intermediation accommodation, solutions recommended by the Housing Plan, is also encouraged. But without knowing whether we will use more of these devices. In addition, nothing is said about the people, very numerous in social hotels, who do not have a residence permit whose children have grown up in France and who, as such, cannot be expelled.

“The watchword is effectively:“ no dry exits ”. But for the moment, the guarantees of its implementation are not met ”sums up Christophe Robert, director general of the Abbé Pierre Foundation. The minister is expected to make announcements next.

Rescuers at sea, to renew their appeal for donations

They called Alain, Dimitri, and Yann. All three are at sea, dead during the rescue of a fisherman in the bay of the Sables-d’olonne (Vendée), during the storm Miguel, on 7 June 2019. This drama had aroused an intense emotion and put the spotlight on the Société nationale de sauvetage en mer (SNSM), which operates on a voluntary basis, on the beaches and offshore, to save lives. “Our lifeguards are not compensated, remember Emmanuel de Oliveira, its president. It is a free act and we stick to it. The consideration is that we rely on the generosity of the public.

Unlike other countries, the association lives mainly from private donations (80 % to 20 % of grant). For the year 2020, this proportion has not changed, to the extent that the public authorities and private donors have been more generous. Its budget, which has been growing steadily for the past few years, increased from 44 to € 50 million between 2019 and 2020. It must be said that the SNSM has much modernized its methods of data collection and does not derogate from this year, launching its fourth national day of rescue at sea on Sunday 28 June. Health crisis requires, it will take a digital form, in place of the traditional gatherings.

Aging fleet

“We have no concern, but uncertainties, ensures the president. We do not know if the large companies will help us at the same height as usual. But despite the crisis, we rely on the loyalty of our donors… “ Because the association must confront several issues in order to sustain its missions. Its 8 500 volunteers – including 4,500 rescuers on-board and 1 500 swimmers lifeguards is less from the naval professions, their training is more demanding and costly.

“Over the past thirty years, the proportion of professional sailors among our rescuers went from three-quarters to one-quarter, stresses Emmanuel De Oliveira. Our volunteers are from all walks of life, from doctors to restaurants and through farmers. Only constraint, and not least, living less than 10 miles off the coast to set sail on a boat in less than fifteen minutes. The association must also equip themselves with cutting-edge equipment and to renew its fleet of vessels (140, 40 of which are big stars insubmersibles, each of which costs 2 million euros).

The SNSM can be proud of not suffering a crisis of vocations. “In most of our stations, we receive applications from young people “observes the president. And this, despite the risks. “Our lifeguards go out in the sea when the other returning to port, when the storm comes or when the night falls… “ The best definition of dedication and courage.

Ideas to boost philanthropy

The year 2019 was completed on a trend sullen for the non-profit world, with a decline in donations and the voting in Parliament of a shot of a plane on the tax benefit available to business patrons. In an attempt to reverse the situation, a report is expected for months and finally surrendered on Tuesday, June 9, the government suggests several provisions that are likely to encourage generosity.

More simple and more readable

“Philanthropy at the French is a chance for our country. It works well but it needs to be reinforced. This is what we want to do with these proposals to help to organise themselves and to find new funding to develop “says the mp MoDem Sarah El Haïry, co-author of the report with his colleague LREM Naïma Moutchou.

→ TO READ. Coronavirus : epidemic encourages the wealthy to the generosity

The two deputies draw up a long list of 35 proposals structured around two priorities. First, make generosity more simple and more readable, editing the legal framework that organizes it. In this domain, the main idea would be the creation of a national body bringing together representatives of the State and associations, to support the evolution of philanthropy and establish the major rules.

Control the excesses

We lack of place to discuss the main issues and to prepare for the reforms to come. The idea of having a single place to the place of our multiple current counterparts is something very interesting , “said a delighted Pierre Siquier, president of France’s generosity, the “union” that brings together the major associations.

This new instance would be mainly in charge of defining what is in the general interest, and should also “be better able to control some of the drifts “, writes Sarah El Haïry. A response to the recent reports of the Court of auditors very critical of the cost of the Foundation Louis Vuitton or the operation of the Foundation act against exclusion (Face).

The other major change proposed by the report is to foster the emergence of foundations land,” mini-Foundations in France at the local level “explains Sarah El Haïry. These structures would have the vocation to bring the good wishes and the generous donors at the service of projects anchored on a municipality or a department. An idea that is not unanimously on the side of the existing associations.

Amendment of succession act

In terms of funding, the report suggests numerous alterations of existing devices. For example, it proposes to encourage the rounding on salary, and to extend the patronage to the jurisdiction of the officials, or to open the civil service to seniors.

The proposal of the most visible is that of a change in the law of succession. Beyond provisions to secure gifts and bequests of associations, the report suggests to reduce the reserved portion (the part of the inheritance which must go to the descendants) in the case of a bequest to an association.

The proposed change is first to limit forced heirship to 66 % in the presence of three and more children, compared to 75 % currently. For estates exceeding 10 million euros, this share would be reduced to a third party with an only child, the half with two and more.

No spoliation

Conservative, Sarah El Haïry stresses that these new rules are only meant to find solutions to some particular cases :” it is a change that relates to the very large legacies which legacies are made in the framework of a project supported by the family. It is not a question of organizing the theft of children.

If securing donations or legacy is a strong demand of the non-profit world, the idea of going beyond is less consensus. “ In fact, this is not a real drawback since the donors with children already give not all of what they could give “ensures a responsible NGO. The idea has most all of the chances of encountering a great reluctance on the part of government, be unwilling to engage on this topic symbolically and politically flammable.

Coronavirus. An association requests the creation of a compensation fund for victims of the

The Coronavictimes association has asked the government to create a compensation fund for victims of Covid-19 along the lines of that of asbestos victims, to go further than recognition as an occupational disease.

> Follow our live Monday, May 4 devoted to the coronavirus pandemic

The current discussions on the initiative of the government relate only to the recognition as occupational disease of certain victims, regretted the young association in a press release published Monday.

Gold, the concept of occupational disease is unsuitable for an epidemic like that of Covid-19 because it concerns only the person infected in the workplace and not the members of his family, who cannot be compensated by this system, she believes.

“A stack of state faults”

Created on March 27 at the initiative of the Jussieu Anti-Asbestos Committee, the Coronavictimes association intends to regroup and defend the victims and families of victims of Covid-19.

In a letter of April 29 to the Prime Minister, she asked that all victims of the coronavirus be compensated by a specially created fund.

She denounces a fault of the state, and even a stack of faults of the state, which did not put in place the necessary protective measures and did not even ensure access to hospital care for all patients and claims a fund modeled after the Asbestos Victim Compensation Fund (FIVA) established in 2001.

The Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, said at the end of April that Covid-19 would be automatically recognized “as an occupational disease for nursing staff”, but not for other categories of workers, who will have to undergo conventional procedures.

This decision was strongly criticized by several unions and associations, including Fnath (accident victims) and Andeva (National Association of Asbestos Victims).
