Howard Lake | 13 February 2007 | News Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has started to add links to social media websites such as del.icio.us and digg to its web-based news releases, with the aim of getting readers to publicise the releases even further.The news release web pages now include three links to del.icio.us, digg.com and reddit.com. CAF is encouraging readers to add links to their news releases on these popular social media sites and thereby increase the readership of the content.Many charities have been slow to exploit the opportunities of free publicity and higher website traffic offered by the free social media sites. Interestingly, CAF have added these social media links only to their news releases. They don’t appear on other pages of their site which could probably benefit from them such as their events and research publications pages. Indeed, there is nothing stopping the charity from adding these links to each of their sites web pages.

A medida que los años de la guerra de Estados Unidos contra inmigrantes se extienden a décadas, se hace difícil imaginar qué horror adicional podría infligir este gobierno capitalista de supremacía blanca a las personas que intentan encontrar un pequeño espacio de seguridad cruzando las fronteras de los Estados Unidos.Sin embargo, esta última semana ha traído noticias de otra injusticia brutalmente cruel.Unaccompanied minor children at a “shelter” — read jail — in south Texas.El Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos de los EE. UU., a instancias de la administración Trump, anunció que ya no proporcionaría dinero para la educación, la recreación y la asistencia legal para los niños migrantes detenidos en “instalaciones gubernamentales”, es decir, en los campos de concentración virtuales donde los migrantes están encerrados.En este momento, más de 13.000 niños migrantes están “alojados”, encarcelados, en más de 100 “refugios”, cárceles, en todo Estados Unidos. Estos incluyen a los niños que cruzaron la frontera solos, así como a aquellos separados a la fuerza de padres y familiares por el gobierno de los Estados Unidos.Estos son niños que huyen de condiciones intolerables en sus países de origen, principalmente en América Central. Allí, la pobreza, la violencia y la agitación han sido fomentadas directa e indirectamente por los Estados Unidos en su intento de controlar y beneficiarse de la mano de obra transnacional.La mano de la clase dominante estadounidense en la creación de una crisis de inmigración/migración fue claramente evidente en la reciente huelga general en Honduras. Un movimiento popular de masas salió a las calles para protestar contra el actual gobierno de derecha, brutalmente violento del país. Estos gobernantes fueron colocados encubiertamente por Washington en 2009 a través de un golpe militar contra Manuel Zelaya, el presidente electo y progresista. La gente se ha ido de Honduras desde entonces debido a las horribles condiciones que resultaron de ese golpe.La reciente directiva de HHS que se niega a proporcionar educación, recreación y asistencia legal para niños encerrados viola el acuerdo de Flores de 1997, que establece estándares para el tratamiento de niños migrantes bajo la custodia del gobierno.Pero esa burla de la legalidad no debería ser una sorpresa.Los jefes capitalistas, y los políticos estadounidenses que gobiernan en su interés, solo se preocupan por obtener ganancias de los pueblos del mundo. Los servicios que se niegan a los niños encarcelados sin duda se consideran “adornos innecesarios”, especialmente si recortan el margen de ganancias de las empresas contratadas para proporcionar estos “refugios”.Muchas de estas compañías son firmas relacionadas con el ejército como MVM, que proporcionó guardias a la CIA en Irak, y General Dynamics. (“Contratistas de la Defensa están cobrando por la detención de niños inmigrantes”, The Daily Beast, 14 de junio de 2018)Mientras que el complejo prisión-militar-industrial gana dinero por los niños, estos también estan siendo usados como peones, junto con otros migrantes, en un juego político de alto nivel jugado por la administración Trump.La administración ha duplicado el tiempo en que los niños están encarcelados, lo que hace cada vez más difícil para los padres y la familia liberarlos. Al mismo tiempo, culpa a México por la “crisis en la frontera”, que ha sido creada por los EE. UU.La directiva de HHS contra los niños encarcelados es tan clara como cualquier declaración de guerra. Elimina cualquier pretensión de proporcionar servicios de “cuidado” para ellos. Es una declaración de guerra de clases de los capitalistas transnacionales de los Estados Unidos contra los pueblos inmigrantes y migrantes, que muestra una disposición absoluta a continuar con el ataque genocida de encarcelar y matar a niños.Cuando el año pasado se desenmascaró la política de “separación familiar” de los Estados Unidos, alejando a los niños de sus padres y seres queridos en la frontera, una protesta y protesta masiva detuvo esa crueldad, al menos en su peor forma.Ahora se debe montar otra ola de protesta contra este uso y abuso de niños migrantes encarcelados en beneficio de los carceleros corporativos.El clamor debe vincular la liberación de los niños migrantes con el sufrimiento de los niños dentro de los Estados Unidos, cuyas necesidades se están sacrificando en el altar del gigantesco presupuesto de guerra de los Estados Unidos.La protesta debe vincular la liberación de todos los niños a la lucha contra el encarcelamiento masivo racista y la explotación del trabajo penitenciario en los Estados Unidos, donde se sacrifica la vida de tantas personas con fines de lucro.La organización debe luchar por la liberación de todos los niños como parte de la implacable oposición a las depredaciones imperialistas de los Estados Unidos en todo el mundo, ya que sus países y sus vidas se destruyen con fines de lucro.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

They had a search warrant and wanted to confiscate more copies of the book, but did not find any. A Kinibooks representative told Reporters Without Borders that the search and “sedition” investigation were unprecedented. For more information: http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/143611 Reporters Without Borders is disturbed by the repressive nature of the “sedition” investigation that has been initiated against cartoonist Zulkiflee Anawar Ulhaque, better known by the pen-name of Zunar, and his new book, “Cartoon-o-phobia,” a collection of satirical political cartoons. Receive email alerts Arrested on 24 September, just a few hours before the new book’s launch, Zunar was released on bail the next day but has gone into hiding for fear of being arrested again under Malaysia’s draconian Internal Security Act, a friend told Reporters Without Borders.

It would be very alarming for media freedom in Malaysia if press cartoons were to be threatened in this manner.” After arriving at his office with a search warrant less than four hours before the launch of “Cartoon-o-phobia,” the police arrested Zunar and took him to seven different police stations in turn. They also seized 66 copies of the book although, as his lawyer pointed out, they only needed one copy for the purposes of their investigation. “I want my books returned to me,” Zunar told journalists as he left the Sepang police station.

FranceEurope – Central Asia July 7, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders demonstrates outside Turkmen embassy for release of three journalists and human rights activists FranceEurope – Central Asia News June 4, 2021 Find out more Chanting “Freedom in Turkmenistan,” some 30 French and foreign journalists and Reporters Without Borders staff members demonstrated outside the Turkmen embassy in Paris this morning to demand the release of three journalists and human rights activists held in Ashgabat for the past three weeks. The Reporters Without Borders staff carried signs with the names and photos of the three detainees.Annakurban Amanklychev, a contributor to the production company Galaxie-Presse and the French TV station France 2, Ogulsapar Muradova, the Turkmenistan correspondent of the US radio station Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty, and Sapardurdy Khajiev were arrested on 16-18 June and taken to the headquarters of the national security ministry (the former KGB office). All three are International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights activists. They are accused of spying and face long prison terms.Reporters Without Borders previously wrote to the first secretary of the Turkmen embassy proposing that he should meet with its secretary-general, Robert Ménard, during today’s demonstration to discuss the Turkmen government’s position on the imprisoned journalists and human rights activists. The first secretary agreed and called back twice, on 6 and 6 July, to confirm the meeting.But to Reporters Without Borders’s astonishment, it found the door to the embassy closed this morning and the planned meeting with the first secretary did not take place.Ménard nonetheless delivered a short address outside the embassy, calling Turkmenistan a news and information “black hole” and accusing its president of banning all forms of press freedom. He said the foreign media were never welcome there and he feared for the lives of the three detainees, who have already been tortured since their arrest.Galaxie-Presse president Bernard Vaillot, who also took part in the demonstration, insisted that Amanklychev was not a spy, just someone who works with Catherine Berthillet of Galaxie-Presse and who was preparing a report about Turkmenistan for the France 2 programme “Envoyé Spécial.” Amanklychev was carrying a hidden camera only because the Turkmen government does not allow TV reporters to operate, he said, adding that TV reports are necessary so that the public can be informed about Turkmenistan.Turkmenistan was ranked third from last in the 2005 Reporters Without Borders classification of countries according to their respect for press freedom. Only North Korea and Eritrea were considered worse.

Ramana, Sanjay Kishan Kaul & B.R. Gavai refused to entertain the plea for an appropriate scheme to support advocates to pay rent of their professional premises during lockdown. Mr. Kailash Vasdev, appearing for the Supreme Court Bar Association stated that the Court must consider the prayer that non-payment of rent shall not lead to eviction for lawyers as “they were high density areas”.”We are not saying rent should not be charged. We are only saying that non payment of rent should not be made a grounds for eviction during the lockdown. Lawyers will lose office space” added Petitioner(s)After the Court expressed its disinclination, the petition was withdrawn by the Petitioner.”We will withdraw it and send the same to the Government” the petitioner stated.Senior Advocate Rana Mukherjee appeared for the petitioner.A Delhi based lawyer, Advocate Aljo K. Joseph had moved the Supreme Court seeking a direction to the Government to formulate an appropriate scheme to support advocates from paying their rent, exclusively for the professional premises.The plea pointed out that many lawyers pay “exorbitant rents” for their professional spaces for the sake of remaining close to Courts of law. However, since lockdown, many lawyers who depend on regular incomes are suffering due to loss of work and as such it has become difficult for them to pay the rent for their office premises.The plea contended that the inaction of the government in supporting lawyers has ultimately affected their right to livelihood protected under Article 19 of the Constitution, in so far as they are being forced to vacate their office premises.”As stated in part III of constitution of India right to life and practice any profession is a fundamental right And such a situation if it arose due to the pandemic and continuing lock down if the professionals are forced to vacate the professional premises and or pay the rent during this pandemic continuing lock down, it would also affect the constitutional guarantee under part III of the constitution of India,” the plea contendedInter alia, the Petitioner submitted that they cannot even invoke the clause of “non-payment due to a Force Majeure event” since they do not provide blanket waiver from payment of lease rentals on occurrence of every Force Majeure event.The petition is drawn and filed by Advocates Sachin Sharma.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Section 3 of the Act gives right to all members of the families belonging to a parish to be buried in the cemetery where their ancestors were buried. The relatives of the deceased member of a parish may forego funeral services in church or its cemetery or opt for funeral services at any other premises by a priest of their choice, the Act states.”Parish” is defined as a group of Christian families having a church or prayer hall for its members to offer worship and ‘”Christian” as any person belonging to the Orthodox-Jacobite denominations of Malankara Christian Church who believes in the Bible and accepts Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God and has been baptized. The Act, however, clarifies that, a member of a family belonging to a parish includes descendants of all persons who have been buried in that cemetery but shall not include those who have left the faith of Orthodox-Jacobite Church and have embraced other denominations of Christian Church or other religions.The Act also has a penal provision. Whoever prevents or attempts or abets to prevent the burial of corpse in violation of the provisions contained in section 3 shall, on conviction, be sentenced to imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year or with fine which may extend to ten thousand rupees or with both, Section 4 reads.In a judgment delivered in March 2019, the Kerala High Court had held that, irrespective of his allegiance, a parishioner cannot be deprived of his/her right to burial in the church of which he/she is the parishioner. In this case, it was noted that the parishioners of a particular church, who owe allegiance to the Patriarch faction, were denied their right to bury their family members, in the space allotted for burial of their family members in the cemetery attached to the church concerned. “This, in our view, would not be in accordance with the declaration of the Supreme Court in the cases referred above. As observed by the Supreme Court in paragraph 228.17 in K.S. Varghese’s case [supra], the Church and the cemetery cannot be confiscated by anybody. It has to remain with the Parishioners as per the customary rights and nobody can be deprived of the right to enjoy the same as a Parishioner in the Church or to be buried honourably in the cemetery, in case he continues to have faith in the Malankara Church.”, the bench had observed.Click here to Read/Download ActRead Act Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
