Protesters demand videotapes of police killing

first_imgA large crowd gathered in Oakland, Calif., on April 12 at the site where ­Yuvette Henderson was killed. They were called here by Henderson’s family and the Anti Police-­Terror Project.Henderson was shot on Feb. 3 by Emeryville police, who fired military AR-15s and other weapons at her as she tried to run from a Home Depot store in Emeryville where a security guard had accused her of shoplifting. Family and supporters held a vigil in front of the Extra Space Storage ­facility in Oakland where she died.Henderson’s brother and sister both spoke at the vigil, as well as Dionne Smith, mother of 16-year-old James Rivera Jr., who was killed by police in Stockton, Calif., in 2010. A letter demanding the release of the videotapes of Henderson’s killing was left at the storage building’s door, as the facility had locked up in ­anticipation of the vigil.Protesters in cars and on bikes then caravanned to the Home Depot, a few blocks away, to demand the release of videotapes there. When the caravan of about 30 cars and as many bikes pulled up in front of the store, the manager locked down the entrances with steel doors, keeping both customers and employees inside.Protesters rallied there for a short time, pushing the letter with their demands through a space in the door. They posted a blown-up version of the letter on a Home Depot sign outside the entrance.The caravan then headed to the Oakland Police Department headquarters. The OPD is responsible for investigating the shooting. The activists had another letter for the OPD, demanding that the tapes be released and the police report. When the caravan was one block from the headquarters, a line of police blocked Broadway. Demonstrators got out of their cars and off their bikes and rallied in front of the police line. The demand letter was handed to one of the commanding officers.Jeralynn Blueford, mother of 18-year-old Alan Blueford who was killed by Oakland police in 2012, addressed the crowd. Cat Brooks and Mollie Costello also spoke from the Anti Police-Terror Project.The APTP is planning a campaign against the use of military weapons by local police departments, starting with the Emeryville police.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RWB urges court to dismiss charges against five Moroccan journalists

first_img April 28, 2021 Find out more Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists The five journalists and writers – Maati Monjib, Samad Ayach, Maria Moukrim, Rachid Tarik and Hicham El Mansouri – are all reporters or regular contributors to such Moroccan media outlets as Lakome2 or Zamane. They are also all members of the Moroccan Association of Investigative Journalism (AMJI).The other two defendants are Hicham Khreibchi (also known as Hicham Al-Miraat), who is the ex-director of the Digital Rights Association (ADN) and Mohamed Essabeur, who heads the Moroccan Education and Youth Association (AMEJ).According to our sources, the authorities accuse them of failing to adhere to the requirements of journalistic “accuracy” and “ethics” and sullying Morocco’s image in their articles.“The Moroccan authorities must urgently end their political and judicial harassment of journalists, which aims to discourage all criticism,” said Yasmine Kacha, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Maghreb desk.“The charges against these journalists and human rights activists must be dismissed if Morocco is to comply with its international obligations, including the obligation to protect freedom of expression and information under article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.”To gag these free speech and media freedom defenders, the authorities are resorting to vaguely-worded legal provisions with heavy penalties. For example, according to our information, the “endangering state security” charge was prompted by articles critical of the government, including one by Monjib posted on the Orient XXI website on 30 March.Ayach’s articles for Lakome2, which were also very critical of the government, and a report about the Moroccan government’s surveillance methods, which ADN and Privacy International published in June and which we supported, are also the targets of the article 206 charge, which carries a possible five-year sentence.AMJI president and former Le Matin’s journalist Tarik and former AMJI president and editor in chief of febrayer.com Moukrim are facing possible fines of 1,200 to 5,000 dirhams on a charge of violating article 8 of the law that regulates NGOs. The charge apparently aims to curb training by AMJI, whose 2014 action plan included training in investigative journalism and awards for the best investigative reports.Government harassmentMansouri is currently serving a 10-month jail sentence on a trumped-up adultery charge imposed on 30 March. Reporters Without Borders condemned the trial’s irregularities and called for his release in a statement on April 2015.Monjib and Ayach were both banned from leaving the country in the past few months – Monjib in june and Ayach in September. Monjib got the ban lifted after going on hunger strike for more than 20 days. Samad will be outside of the country on the 19th as he will be taking part to a workshop on citizen journalism.Last month, Reporters Without Borders published in September 2015 an overview of the current state of media freedom in Morocco and the pressure to which journalists are exposed, especially if they defy the government “red lines” on covering subjects that are still highly sensitive, such as Islam, the monarchy and Morocco’s claim to Western Sahara. Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders calls on the judicial authorities to drop all charges against seven activists, including five journalists and writers, whose trial on charges of “endangering state security and integrity” and receiving “illegal foreign funding” is due to begin on 19 November.

Wave of threats against journalists in northwest

first_img Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders is extremely concerned about a wave of threats against journalist in three coastal departments in northwestern Colombia, a region known for the presence of major criminal organizations.“Journalists should not have pay because of the region’s high level of organized crime-related violence,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The authorities must quickly investigate these acts of intimidation, which constitute grave violations of freedom of information. They must guarantee the safety of journalists and must make appropriate protective measures available to those who request them.”Crime reporter Amilkar Alvear and photographer Jairo Cassiani of the newspaper Al Día received a letter in Montería (Córdoba department) on 28 January 2013 containing death threats by the BCLU (Los Urabeños Criminal Band). It said they had “talked a lot” about the BCLU and now had 48 hours to leave the city. The two journalists left Montería the same day and are now under police protection in another city.Another Al Día journalist, Jairo Contreras, received threats by SMS message and mobile phone calls in Sincelejo (in neighbouring Sucre department) on 13 and 24 January.Al Día is well known for its crime coverage and is popular in the northwest. Alvear and Cassiani had covered arrests of BCLU members on several occasions.In Medellín (the capital of Antioquia department), reporters and cameramen with Teleantioquia Noticias, Telemedellín, Caracol Noticias and Noticias RCN were threatened repeatedly in the second half of January while covering events linked to acts of violence in various parts of the city (especially Districts 8 and 13).On several occasions they were forced to stop filming and leave because they were being threatened by unidentified men. The journalists concerned preferred not to be named for fear of reprisals from “combos” (individuals acting on the orders of criminal gangs).The wave of threats in the northwest was preceded by a case of intimidation in the capital on 11 January, when El Tiempo crime reporter and editor Jineth Bedoya also received a threatening message.Several local organizations including the Press Freedom Foundation (FLIP), the Antioquia Journalists Association (APA) and the Sucre Association of Social Communicators and Journalists (ACPS) have condemned these threats as serious violations of freedom of information. to go further May 13, 2021 Find out more April 27, 2021 Find out more 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies ColombiaAmericas RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Colombia Newscenter_img RSF_en News February 1, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Wave of threats against journalists in northwest ColombiaAmericas RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Organisation News Reports October 21, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

The interim direction has come in a PIL filed by Advocate Ananga Kumar Otta, seeking high level enquiry against the persons who revealed identity of Covid patients in the State. The court has issued notices to the Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, the Government of Orissa and State’s Department of Revenue & Disaster Management, returnable by June 4. Highlighting the “devastating consequences” attached to disclosure of identity of Covid patients, the plea points out several cases whereby COVID-19 patients as well as healthcare workers, sanitary workers and Police, who are in the frontline for management of the outbreak, faced discrimination on account of “heightened fear and misinformation” about the infection. In these circumstances, the Petitioner has contended that the issue as to keeping the patients’ identities anonymous is required to be examined in the light of underlying issues of privacy, the stigma of being seen as a COVID-19 patient, and the urgency of response to a fast-spreading communicable disease. Pertinently, in a bid to counter the prejudices against Corona patients, the Government of India and the ICMR had issued advisories against disclosure of identities. However, since health is a state subject, the final decision is left at the disposal of various state Governments. In this context the plea states that most states in India have a strict policy similar to that of ICMR – of not revealing the identity of COVID-19 patients. However, in cases where the identity is revealed, people have faced serious consequences. In view thereof the plea states, “It is the primary duty of the State to maintain confidentiality in the matter of treatments and is therefore, a part of ethics for the treating Doctors, not to divulge the details of the patients.” The state of Orissa also follows the ICMR’s advisory and it had made provision under Regulation 4 of the Odisha COVID -19 Regulations 2020 on the score that no person/ institution/ organization will use any print or electronic media for information regarding COVID-19 without prior permission of the concerned authorities. Despite such clear orders, the plea points out, the Government of Odisha broke its own norms of not revealing the identity of corona virus patients as it named the fifth person in the State who tested positive. In all, identity of thirteen patients has been revealed. “Disclosure of identity of thirteen persons infected/affected by COVID-19 in the district of Kendrapara has raised a question about lack of adequate safeguard, for which such disclosure is prohibited and therefore, needs judicial intervention for a stern action on the basis of high level enquiry as mat be directed there for,” the plea states. Apart from a high level enquiry, the Petitioner has also pleaded the Court to put a check on the devastating consequences of disclosure of patients’ identity, by directing the Government to undertake a programme for making the people understand as to why there should not be any “social boycotting”. “The facts of the case would suggest that appropriate directions have to be issued in order to ameliorate the situation and further to advance befitting programmes to prevent social boycotting and make the people aware of the difference between ‘social distancing’ and ‘social boycotting’,” the Petitioner submitted.The Petition has been filed and argued by Advocate Susanta Kumar Dash assisted by Ashutosh Sahoo, Swetlana Das and Smruti Mohanty Case Details: Case Title: Ananga Kumar Otta v.

Police searching for person of interest in death of couple found in beach grave

first_imgMicroStockHub/iStock(NEW YORK) — Police are searching for a person of interest in the death of a New Hampshire couple who was found buried on a Texas beach.James Butler, 48, and his wife, 46-year-old Michelle Butler, were found buried in a shallow grave on a remote part of Padre Island along the southern coast of Texas on Oct. 27 and 28, nearly three weeks after they disappeared, police said.The unidentified person of interest was seen driving the couple’s stolen RV across a checkpoint into Mexico in surveillance footage on Oct. 21. There were no suspects in custody as of Sunday and police are still searching for the RV.Authorities discovered the couple’s badly decomposed remains after one of their cellphones pinged in the area. Deputies with the Kleberg County Sheriff’s Office were following up on the lead when they noticed a bra covered in sand on the side of a dune. Upon further investigation, they discovered the bodies.The sheriff’s office said it took several days to identify the bodies because they had no identification and had badly decomposed. Their causes of death have not been released, but police are investigating the case as a homicide.The couple’s family said the pair were avid travelers and were partaking in a cross-country road trip to Florida, where they planned to sell Christmas trees.They were reported missing on Oct. 23 when family and friends notified police, saying they hadn’t heard from them in a week.“They are always in contact with the families. So, the fact that, even for a day, they were out of contact was really strange,” James Butler’s niece, Stephanie van Loon, told ABC News in an interview Sunday. “They were the type of people to open their hearts and homes to everybody. They were just those kinds of people.“They [met] great friends all along the way, which is part of the reason the social media factor was so helpful because everyone really wanted to help find them. They had friends all over the U.S. from their travels,” she added.Van Loon said Michelle Butler had children from a previous relationship and grandchildren she “always wanted to talk to.” She described the Butlers as a fun-loving couple who enjoyed making people laugh and partaking in outdoor activities like horseback riding and hiking.“I have so many photos of them just going all over the U.S. and all the hiking trails through all the different climbs. They were really loving the chance to explore out West and the desert environments,” van Loon said. “Growing up here in New Hampshire, it’s obviously very deciduous and it’s just they were really trying to experience the parts of the U.S. that he hadn’t been able to experience before.”She said the family is looking forward to finally starting the grieving process, but she said they won’t be able to get proper closure until justice is served.“In a way, it was a sigh of relief for everybody because if we had found out that it wasn’t them, it honestly would have been so much worse in the sense of not knowing where they were or anything,” van Loon said. “We’re hoping to find whoever is responsible and get an answer as to why something like this would have happened.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

In a message posted to the band’s website, the group’s front man Patterson Hood explains the topical nature of the American Band‘s themes, in the midst of the “crazy times” that we live in, and the group’s mindset when creating the album:“We’ve always considered ourselves a political band, even when that aspect seemed to be concealed by some type of narrative device i.e. dealing with issues of race by telling a story set in the time of George Wallace or class struggles by setting “Putting People of the Moon” in the age of Reagan.This time out, there are no such diversions as these songs are mostly set front and center in the current political arena with songs dealing with our racial and cultural divisions, gun violence, mass shootings and political assholery. Once again, there is a nearly even split between the songs of Cooley and myself, with both of us bringing in songs that seem to almost imply a conversation between us about our current place in time.American Band is a sort of rock and roll call to arms as well as a musical reset button for our band and the country we live in. Most of all, we look at it as the beginnings of some conversations that we, as a people very much need to begin having if we ever hope to break through the divisions that are threatening to tear us apart. Drive-By Truckers are celebrating our twentieth anniversary as a band in an election year where some people are trying to define what it is to be American. Definitions based on some outdated ideology of prejudice and fear. We are loudly proclaiming that those people don’t speak for us. America is and always has been a land of immigrants and ideals. Ideals that we have often fallen short of achieving, but it’s the striving that has given us whatever claims to greatness we have had. That’s what America means to us and “We’re an American Band’.”The band also released a stream of “Surrender Under Protest” off the upcoming album. As Hood says in the message, “‘Surrender Under Protest’ is a Mike Cooley composition that is unlike any DBT song we’ve ever recorded, yet somehow sounds unmistakably like us. In a way, that’s pretty indicative of the album as a whole.” Listen to the new song below:A pre-order period is now underway. Check here for more details.last_img read more

Breaking bread together

first_imgThese days, the thought of shared meals, in which families or friends regularly gather around tables to eat and converse leisurely, seems about as old-fashioned as a rotary phone.In the fast-paced world of 2010, diners are more likely to grab a sandwich to go, or eat at their desks, in their cars, while walking, or even on public transit en route to their next engagements.The Harvard Divinity School (HDS) is hoping to change that dining dynamic in a small way with its new community table at the School’s Rock Café.Introduced this fall as a way to bring people together around shared meals, the table was the idea of Harvard University Hospitality and Dining Services (HUDS), and was backed by the café’s food advisory committee, a group of students and staff who regularly meet to discuss ways to improve the eating experience at the newly renovated dining space in Rockefeller Hall.“We wanted to find a way to differentiate ourselves from other dining experiences nearby,” said Ralph DeFlorio, director of operations for Harvard Divinity School. “There is a tradition in a lot of other divinity schools where they have a refectory type of setting with community tables and shared meals, so we thought that was something we could bring back to the Rock Café.”An added goal, said DeFlorio, was to create largely sustainable meals, a mission that has been accomplished with the help of produce from the School’s new community garden located across the street behind the dean’s house, to the side of the School’s Center for the Study of World Religions.Faculty, students, and staff can reserve the table for family-style meals for $5.95 per person. The food is specially prepared by the café staff.On Monday (Oct. 18), members of the café’s advisory committee took advantage of the chance to eat and chat with a special guest, author and noted chef Mollie Katzen, who is also a member of the Harvard University Hospitality and Dining Services advisory committee.Katzen was on campus during the week for a series of lectures and cooking events. Her vegetarian ethos was behind the table’s meal of the day, a lunch of spice-crusted tofu cutlets, black bean sliders, bulgur pilaf, and marinated broccoli and mushrooms with walnuts.In a discussion about how to best introduce vegetarian options to the café’s menu, Katzen urged the committee to come up with a slogan that could convey a sense of the possible.“We still have a long way to go. Unfortunately, people still perceive [the concept of] ‘meatless’ as something that is being taken away,” she said, encouraging the committee to “find a phrase about giving people more, rather than taking something away.”The popular chef, who styles herself as pro-vegetable as opposed to anti-meat, was thrilled to see the committee members all seated at the same table.“There’s a whole generation coming up who don’t eat at tables,” said Katzen. She praised HDS for its effort to revitalize “the whole art of sitting down together, eating at a table.”Martin Breslin, HUDS director for culinary operations, agreed.“People seem to love it,” he said of the new table arrangement. “It’s the ‘real food’ experience from a community perspective.”Organizers hope to expand the table’s reservations and envision it becoming a regular meeting space for departments and groups around the School.“I think people are very passionate about food here,” said DeFlorio. “It’s a big part of the culture and the environment, and this [table] is something that connects people together, with food.”“I love sitting down to have a communal meal with people,” said committee member and HDS student Grace Egbert. “This is a much more meaningful and enriching experience, … much more than getting a sandwich from the cooler.”last_img read more
