Bowel Cancer UK to overhaul marketing and donor communications

first_imgRoger Lawson, data and planning director of Cascaid, said the response to this had been very encouraging and would help decide the structure of future fundraising campaigns. As well as looking at strategies and materials for future acquisition an welcome programmes, the charity is also to revive and revamp its supporter magazine as a vehicle for information and updates on research, treatments and charity events. Bowel Cancer UK is working with marketing agency Cascaid to carry out a strategic review and overhaul of its marketing and donor communications.The first campaign is an emergency fundraising appeal for the Bowel Cancer Advisory Line in the form of a direct marketing campaign in the second half of September. This will be sent to a wide range of existing and lapsed donors and event participants. The campaign ties in with increased demand for the Advisory Line following the introduction of the government’s National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme. Cascaid carried out a ‘permission request’ campaign earlier this year asking people how often they wanted to be contacted by Bowel Cancer UK, and if they would like to get involved in the ‘Sit Down On It’ campaign.

Ramsey Clark, human rights fighter – 1927-2021

first_imgRamsey Clark was a founder of the International Action Center and inspired the political activists who used its structure to defend liberation struggles, oppose U.S. wars of aggression, defend political prisoners whether in U.S. prison-industrial complex or in the U.S.-backed dictatorships worldwide. IAC militants joined international delegations that defied the blockade of Cuba and sanctions on Iraq, contested the U.S.-NATO war on Yugoslavia or joined the wave of resistance then sweeping Latin America. He guided the production of hundreds of books and videos, mass meetings, internet campaigns and demonstrations the IAC organized.Ramsey Clark at his 85th birthday celebration, Jan. 12, 2013. Credit: Brenda RyanThe IAC is collecting tributes and statements about Ramsey Clark’s contribution. Please send your memories to: [email protected] salute Ramsey Clark, who died April 9, 2021, an outspoken defender of all forms of popular resistance to oppression, a leader always willing to challenge the crimes of U.S. militarism and global arrogance. He remained optimistic that the power of people could determine history. His courageous voice will be missed.Ramsey Clark will be remembered by people and struggles around the world as a prominent individual who used his name, reputation and legal skills to defend people’s movements and leaders who the corporate media had thoroughly demonized.Clark’s early belief in the U.S. role turned, through harsh experience and observation of what he considered U.S. war crimes, to a determination to challenge U.S. policy and defend the victims of U.S. aggressions regardless of personal cost. His actions, leadership and writings showed his political development over the past 60 years, above all, his actions.Born into a prominent Texas family in 1927, his father Supreme Court Justice Tom Clark, Ramsey was raised to believe in the power of U.S. laws. He came of age at the apex of U.S. power at the end of World War II and experienced the U.S. empire’s long decline and decay. He was appointed assistant attorney general in 1961 during the John F. Kennedy administration and attorney general during the Lyndon Johnson administration in 1967. The 1960s power of the Civil Rights Movement and Black liberation struggle demanded sweeping change in government. As attorney general Clark enforced desegregation of schools across the South and supervised the drafting of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and Civil Rights Act of 1968. He drafted housing legislation and enforcement of Indigenous Nations Treaty rights.Unlike nearly every other Cabinet level official, who leveraged their post into a multi-million dollar career after leaving government, Ramsey Clark leveraged his role as former attorney general to act for the impoverished and voiceless. Vietnam, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela In 1972 he traveled to North Vietnam during President Richard Nixon’s bombing campaign. He was in Tehran, Iran in 1979 on days when millions of Iranians braved machine guns of the Savak Police and overturned the brutal U.S. backed shah and his whole regime. He visited Cuba numerous times to challenge the U.S. blockade and express deep admiration for the dramatic changes the Cuban Revolution made possible. Along with demonstrations of tens of thousands against U.S. wars in 1991 and 2003, Ramsey Clark headed significant mass meetings in Solidarity with Cuba at Javits Convention Center in 1992 and with Bolivarian Venezuela at Town Hall in 2005,Clark stood by the 1979 Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua and the struggle for liberation of El Salvador in the 1980s against a U.S. backed dictatorship. He traveled to Panama after the December 1989 U.S. invasion to document the enormous toll in life. While many embraced the collapse of the Soviet Union as ending the Cold War and ushering in an era of peace and prosperity, Clark held the view that this would lead to endless wars of U.S. expansion and an effort to recolonize many countries. Opposed U.S. war on IraqAt great personal risk Ramsey Clark traveled to Iraq during the height of the 1991 U.S. bombing. Extending personal courage to political and legal skill, he wrote a 19-point indictment of the Bush administration for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity that resonated around the world. The indictment became the basis of a Commission of Inquiry that held mass popular hearings in 19 countries and 26 U.S. Cities. Ramsey attended every mass hearing. The final tribunal was held in New York City in February 1992 before thousands of people and international delegates. The events drew strong media coverage around the world, and total censorship in the corporate U.S. media. During the years of the deadliest sanctions on Iraq that caused the death of a half-million Iraqi children within four years, Ramsey brought international delegations each year to challenge and expose the impact of the sanctions. These fact-finding and human rights delegations almost always included videographers, journalists and photographers to document the impact on defenseless civilian populations. He encouraged others to also organize solidarity delepations.Following the 2003 U.S.-British invasion and occupation of Iraq and under even more dangerous conditions, Clark traveled to Iraq numerous times. He provided legal defense for Saddam Hussein, Iraq’s captured president, who the U.S. and its Iraqi lackeys put on a show trial. Though the outcome was inevitable, Clark was determined to expose that the real crime was the U.S. destruction of Iraq and was unapologetic for his defense of Saddam Hussein. Three of his Iraqi defense lawyers were assassinated for their role defending him. Saddam Hussein was executed on Dec. 30, 2006.Sudan, YugoslaviaIn 1998 the U.S. bombed a small pharmaceutical plant producing the only anti-malaria drugs in Sudan claiming it was a secret VX Nerve gas facility. Ramsey immediately organized doctors, pharmacists and videographers to expose this crime against the civilian population. In the biggest and most dangerous aggression in European borders since 1945, the U.S., determined to expand the NATO military alliance into the Balkans and Eastern Europe, launched the 1999 war to dismember and destroy Yugoslavia, during the Bill Clinton administration. Ramsey Clark was in Yugoslavia twice during the 78 days of relentless U.S. bombing, expressing solidarity with people under attack documenting that the Pentagon consciously targeted civilians. Clark gave priority to visiting bombed schools, hospitals, market places, water purification plants, grain silos and pharmaceutical plants, as he did in other countries the U.S. bombed. Following the war, he drew up a public indictment of Clinton and other leaders of NATO countries and inspired a mass People’s Tribunal on U.S. war crimes in Yugoslavia, whose final hearing was in June 2000.Clark dared to meet with Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic in Yugoslavia during the U.S. bombing and later at the Hague after the kidnapped president faced an international kangaroo court the U.S. established to try Yugoslav leaders. Ramsey’s view was that the wrong leaders were being charged. According to his indictment for the 2000 tribunal, Clinton should have been in the dock, along with Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and the corresponding leaders of Germany, Britain, France and other NATO powers.U.S. political prisoners While much of Ramsey Clark’s work focused on defense of nations under attack by the U.S., he also defended dozens if not hundreds of political prisoners of the empire, in and outside the United States. These included Indigenous activist Leonard Peltier; Imam Jamil Al-Amin (aka H. Rap Brown), who is held in a Super Max prison. He and Lynne Stewart were willing to defend Egyptian Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman. (For her role, Stewart was charged and imprisoned). He supported independence for Puerto Rico and freedom for its many political prisoners. He traveled to Peru to defend U.S. citizen Lori Berenson, held by Peru’s dictatorship and to the Philippines. He defended Jose Maria Sison against “terrorism” charges. Clark publicly supported Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani woman tortured in Afghanistan and serving 86-year sentence in U.S. Federal prison as well as Mumia Abu-Jamal Pennsylvania State Prison.He traveled to Nepal when a revolutionary upheaval brought in a new government and to DPRK North Korea to protest against U.S. war games and nuclear threats. Solidarity with PalestineWhen Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was targeted by U.S. and Israeli forces, Clark met with him in Lebanon, and later traveled to Gaza under total Israeli shutdown and met with Hamas leadership. Clark’s long years of support of the Palestinian struggle for liberation meant Zionist forces always denounced him.Clark denounced every aspect of the “U.S. War on Terror” as a War Against Islam with endless military operations, sanctions, drone strikes, regime change operations, assassinations, secret detentions and a series of bases throughout Africa to Central Asia and the Gulf States.In 2011, NATO imperialists took advantage of an opening provided by the Arab Spring and the mass upsurge that overthrew the dictatorships in Tunisia and Egypt, to open a 220-day bombing of Libya and murder Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. This destroyed the country with the highest standard of living in Africa.U.S. imperialism then turned its full efforts into pulling down the government of Syria. Ramsey traveled to Syria several times in an effort to again focus attention on the impact of U.S. subversion on civilians. Traveling at personal risk, Clark exposed what U.S. sanctions, the arming of tens of thousands of mercenaries and then bombing vital infrastructure was doing to whole countries. Even as decades rolled by Ramsey maintained an intense schedule of listening to and involving activists in challenging projects, along with speaking, traveling and consulting with peoples under attack.Sara Flounders is Co-director of The International Action CenterFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Opposition reporter convicted on trumped-up hooliganism charge

first_img RSF_en “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 8, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Azerbaijani authorities to quash last week’s conviction of opposition reporter Tezehan Miralamli, the latest victim of a long-established government practice of fabricating cases against critical journalists in order to neutralize them.Employed by Azadlig, the only remaining opposition newspaper, Miralamli was convicted of “hooliganism” under article 221.1 of the penal code on 19 June, in yet another attempt by the government to give its persecution of critics a semblance of legality in the international community’s eyes – something it has been doing for years, especially since joining the Council of Europe in 2001. Convicted by a Baku court of hitting an alleged blogger – who was clearly used by the authorities – in an altercation on 26 February, Miralamli has been sentenced to wear an electronic bracelet and stay at home every night from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. for the next 12 months. He says this will obstruct his reporting by preventing him from covering night-time events or events outside Baku, and by placing him under constant police surveillance.“What with arrests, physical attacks and jailing family members, the authorities have been harassing Tezehan Miralamli for eight years for his reporting and his political views,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“For these reasons, we ask the Azerbaijani judicial system to get these charges dropped. We also urge the Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Dunja Mijatović, to condemn the use of trumped-up charges and the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers to condition Azerbaijan’s participation in its institutions on respect for its obligations and undertakings.”The European Court of Human Rights already ruled against Azerbaijan in 2015 and 2016 in two cases involving Miralamli that were not directly linked to his journalistic activities. Last April, Miralamli was detained by the police for several hours after interviewing Ali Karimli, the head of the opposition Popular Front Party, with whom he is close.Trumped-up charges of physical violence have often been used to jail critical journalists in Azerbaijan. The victims of this technique include Seymour Khazi – who used to write for Azadlig and went on to present the exile broadcast Azerbaycan Saati – who spent five years in prison on similar charges.Ganimat Zahid, the editor of both Azadlig and Azerbaycan Saati, was jailed for more than two and a half years, from 2007 to 2010, for supposedly attacking a woman. Azel.tv news website editor Afgan Sadykhov was accused of “aggravated assault” in November 2016 after he responded to a summons by local officials and, on arriving at the meeting place, was attacked and punched by a woman who then filed a complaint against him.Journalist Elchin Hasanov was convicted of hooliganism in 2016 after being physically attacked and filing a complaint against his assailant, while the blogger Mehman Huseynov, who was jailed for defamation in 2017, was charged with hooliganism a few months before his release in 2019.The authorities also fabricate tax evasion charges. Khadija Ismayilova, a well-known investigative journalist, was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison in 2015 on absurd charge of “large-scale embezzlement,” “illegal trade,” “tax evasion” and “abuse of authority.” She was released as a result of international pressure but was ordered to pay 45,143 manats (around 23,000 euros) in bogus back taxes in 2018.The police also readily resort to the Soviet-era ploy of “discovering” drugs, firearms or even banned books during searches. “Drug trafficking” was the main charge on which Hilal Mammedov, the editor of the Talysh-language newspaper Tolishi Sado, was sentenced to five years in prison in 2014.This constant persecution is the reason why Azerbaijan fell another two places in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 168th out of 180 countries. The leading critical media outlets have been silenced or have had to relocate abroad, the main independent websites are blocked and at least five journalists are currently in prison.

Garryowen community appalled by week of fires and antisocial behaviour

first_imgTwitter WhatsApp NewsCommunityCrime & CourtGarryowen community appalled by week of fires and antisocial behaviourBy Alan Jacques – August 15, 2020 1619 Email Garryowen Residents Association Chairperson, John Nugent, and Sinn Fein TD Maurice Quinlivan taking a look at some of the damage done in Garryowen by youths over the past week.SEVEN nights of anti-social behaviour and fires in Garryowen by a small group of youths have been condemned locally by residents appalled by their conduct.Speaking to the Limerick Post after visiting Garryowen this week, Sinn Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan said last Sunday was the seventh consecutive night of fires on Garryowen green.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Garryowen is an area that is well looked after by its residents and it is extremely frustrating to see such community spirit and co-operation undermined by the actions of an ignorant few. I have spoken to residents today and the response that I am receiving is that these actions are being perpetrated by local youths, many of whom are quite young and without adults present,” Deputy Quinlivan revealed.The Limerick politician is angry that the resources of the Gardaí and Fire Brigade have been forced to respond to these incidents over the past week.“Those who attend these fires are diverting these resources away from the work they should be doing. This cannot be allowed to continue. It is simply unacceptable and local residents deserve much better,” Deputy Quinlivan declared.Aside from the damage being done to the communal green, Garryowen Residents Association Chairperson, John Nugent, pointed out that these vandals are also lighting their fires next to ESB fuse boxes and near to the homes of residents.“When you see such young people involved, you have to ask why TUSLA have not intervened? We need to see a joined-up response from all the relevant agencies, with TUSLA working alongside Limerick Council Tenancy Enforcement office and local Gardaí so that all appropriate actions can be taken against those who are involved in such anti-community behaviour,” Mr Nugent commented.“Many of these residents of the area are elderly, and commotion and activity can be distressing. These fires must cease now.” Facebookcenter_img Linkedin Advertisement Print Previous articleAnn & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 22 | Problem solvingNext articleNew campaign encourages considering sexual health Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

Do employees benefit from employee benefits?

first_img Comments are closed. Read full article Do employees benefit from employee benefits?Shared from missc on 17 Jun 2015 in Personnel Today Staff benefits schemes seem to be a hot topic at the moment so I thought I’d chime in with my thoughts….In years gone by the company car, paid phone bill’s or company credit card were pretty much the in domain of the professionals at the top of their game working in the most generous of companies. Now though, almost akin to my blog post on gimmicky long interview processes, companies seem to be using the benefits they offer as a marketing tool, and the list of what is being offered is getting longer and longer. There’ nothing wrong with that, but let’s dissect it a little.In recent times there has been a lot of debate over what is considered a generous benefits programme and what is going too far. For example, I refer to Facebook and Apple who opted for a very polarizing benefit of freezing any female employee’s eggs (most suggest in a bid to allow feeling more at ease delaying having children). Or Google California, as another example who trucked in snow to create a snowy wonderland for its staff. Times are of course changing and our wants and needs are evolving with the times. I totally get that we are not programmed in the same way that we were 50 years ago where social norms almost pre-defined at what ages children would enter our lives, or when we should be allowed to enjoy a brisk walk in the snow, but is this taking a “company benefit” too far?In a few less extreme examples such-as, orgs employing chefs to cook meals each day for staff, full gym in-house or even sleep pods. These all sound amazing, right? And who wouldn’t want a part of that, but something that is also worth thinking about is – Are we then blurring the lines further between our professional worlds and our personal worlds? And indeed, is this a good or bad thing? We have already seen a huge shift towards technology interoperability and never being too far away from a piece of tech that could see us struggle to “switch off” in our personal time, but we are now looking at a new age where the comforts of home-life are being brought to the office.This is not to say I wouldn’t dive straight into a sleep-pod given the chance – just food for thought and I’d be keen to hear other perspective on where boundaries should be in the creation of a solid benefits scheme…center_img Related posts:No related photos.
