Four supermarkets pledge carrier bag funds to fight dementia

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Supermarkets Iceland, Asda, Morrisons and Waitrose are together donating their income from the single-use carrier bag levy in England to fund a dementia research centre at UCL.The Dementia Research Institute will bring together researchers from across UCL and UCLH to lead national and international efforts to find effective treatments and improve the lives of those with dementia. The £350 million project currently has a shortfall in funding of £100 million. The supermarkets estimate that their plastic bag funds will raise £20 million towards that in the first year.From 5 October larger retailers in England must charge 5p for the sale of each plastic bag. Many are donating their income to charity.The supermarkets are not keeping any income from the plastic bag sale to cover overheads: they say that 100% of funds generated by the plastic bag sales will be donated to support the dementia research centre.Professor Alan Thompson, Dean of the UCL Faculty of Brain Sciences, said:“Dementia is the greatest scientific, medical and socio-economic challenge of our times and affects more than 35 million people worldwide. UCL, through its translational neuroscience at Queen Square, can bring the breadth and depth of expertise required to deliver therapeutic advances to this devastating condition. Philanthropy has made a huge difference in tackling global diseases such as cancer and malaria and this unprecedented initiative sees UK retailers acting collaboratively to tackle the tragedy that is dementia and neurodegenerative diseases.”Hilary Evans, Chief Executive of Alzheimer’s Research UK, the UK’s leading dementia research charity, added: Advertisementcenter_img “It’s enormously encouraging to see major retailers with huge influence over the public putting themselves forward to help solve the dementia challenge. With a global aim to produce a disease-modifying treatment that can bring relief to people with dementia by 2025, dementia research has big ambitions and will need big initiatives to realise them. UCL is home to one of our three new dementia Drug Discovery Institutes, which will spearhead the search for the next generation of treatments – it will take scientists working collaboratively on this scale to bring relief to millions of lives blighted by dementia worldwide.”Other food retailers invited to joinThe Chief Executives of Iceland, Asda, Morrisons and Waitrose have also written to the CEOs of all other UK food retailers, inviting them to join the partnership to raise even more funds for the centre from the plastic bag levy.  69 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Howard Lake | 6 October 2015 | Newslast_img read more

U.S. props up unpopular Haitian regime on verge of collapse

first_imgMarch 21 — In the past week, one group of Haitian cops attacked at least two precincts, released prisoners who they said were being held illegally, set fires, sacked a car dealership and demanded the government retrieve the bodies of cops who died in a March 12 ambush.In the past year, Haitians have experienced a six-hour gun battle between the reconstituted Haitian army and some police protesters and armed conflicts between gangs from different neighborhoods and self-defense militias. Concurrent with these small-scale armed conflicts have been massive popular marches, which have drawn hundreds of thousands of people to the streets throughout Haiti, demanding that President Juvenel Moïse step down.Port-au-Prince protest, Feb. 28. Sign reads: Democracy in danger.While imperialist politicians and media often blame Haiti’s poverty and turmoil on Haitians, many Haitian progressives point to U.S. imperialism’s oppressing and suppressing the world’s only country founded by a successful slave revolt, which was victorious in 1804. At the time, the rulers of the slavocracy dominating the young United States were terrified by the Haitian example.For over two centuries, as the March 17 issue of Haïti-Liberté pointed out, the U.S. has engaged in “embargoes, sabotage, bullying, aggression, destabilization campaigns, coups d’état, military occupations and theft of territory and treasure” against Haiti.It is illuminating to think of this centuries-old U.S. policy as an underhanded, implicit imperialist war against Haiti, the world’s first Black republic, for its people’s “original sin” of smashing the French slave owners’ rule.The March 12 ambush occurred when a cop patrol in two armored personnel carriers entered the poor Village de Dieu (Village of God) neighborhood in Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital. The cops planned to raid the headquarters of the Five Second Base gang. After luring the patrol into a trap, ambushers destroyed one APC and seized the other along with body armor, radios and weapons. Five cops were killed, eight injured.The cop raid was a response to the Five Second Base shooting up the headquarters of Haiti’s national electricity company in downtown Port-au-Prince a few days earlier.Gangs, including some the government has allowed to flourish because they discourage political activity, have blossomed in Haiti’s poorest neighborhoods. Some gangs have turned to the crime of kidnapping, doubling the number of kidnappings in 2020. Some Haitian banks have been involved in these kidnapping projects.The gangs themselves grew out of self-defense militias set up in the 1980s after the fall of the Duvalier father-son dictatorship, which ruled Haiti from 1957 to 1986. The militias protected neighborhoods from remnants of the Tonton Macoutes, the Duvaliers’ paramilitary force. Washington backed the Duvaliers and even arranged to fly the son, Jean-Claude Duvalier, safely to exile in France.Poverty pervasivePoverty in Haiti is pervasive. Haiti’s minimum wage for the highest paid textile workers is about $6.50 for an 8-hour day. While exact figures are hard to come by, most Haitians — 50% to 80% — survive on less than $3 a day. Unemployment officially is estimated at 14%, but many “officially employed” workers’ jobs are far from steady.Family members abroad in the U.S. and other countries transmit $2 billion a year in remittances back to Haiti through a financial system the U.S. government completely controls. If the U.S. government considered it necessary, it could shut down this flow of money in a few hours.For the past four decades, Haitian presidents have been either picked, endorsed or deposed by the U.S. Secretary of State. Hundreds of thousands of Haitians have taken to the streets this year to demand that President Moïse step down since his constitutional term of office has expired. Moïse refuses.Washington’s reaction was to do nothing more than urge Moïse to hold parliamentary elections, which is tacit support for Moïse.The Haitian bourgeoisie — the urban middle class — appears to be split on how to respond to this crisis, between a faction that wants to smash the gangs and one that would like to see Moïse leave.It is going to be hard to smash the gangs, since ultimately their existence reflects the vast economic inequality in Haiti between the wealthy and the poor. Moïse is not going to leave before the U.S. tells him to.One thing is certain: Chaos in Haiti is going to grow.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

French military intervention achieves “zero image of the war front” media objective

first_img MaliAfrica May 17, 2021 Find out more The United States warmly congratulated France today on the success of its “Operation Serval” in Mali but Reporters Without Borders regrets that France has had similar success with its goal of heavily restricting direct media coverage of the military intervention.“The French authorities, supported by their Malian counterparts, have achieved their ‘zero image of the war front’ media objective for Operation Serval by strictly controlling access to information ,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Excessive citing of security grounds is seriously curtailing media freedom. While we can understand the French military’s stated desire to prevent reporters being abducted or attacked, the defence ministry should conform to the demands of democratic values by allowing the media to have direct access to the news rather than keeping them at a distance, as it has done until now.” Ever since the start of the military operations in Mali several weeks ago, journalists have been kept away from the war zones and denied the possibility of directly observing events and gathering information . As a result, the media have been prevented from deciding for themselves how they cover this war.Both local and international journalists have expressed legitimate frustration about having to depend on the information provided by the defence and foreign ministries’ press services. Photos and video of military activity in Bamako have been illustrating reports in the absence of any images from the war front.Nearly a week after the start of the French intervention in Mali, a few journalists were finally allowed to be travel “embedded” with French troops. Reporters Without Borders welcomed this, while stressing that this should not be the only way of covering the war.Several journalists subsequently expressed surprise that the French military authorities were allowing only reporters with the French state-owned media to be embedded with their troops. to go further Reporters Without Borders rallies former hostages in Paris, following the kidnapping of journalist Olivier Dubois. French reporter says he has been kidnapped in northeastern Mali Journalists were again prevented from working freely when the authorities allowed them to visit newly-liberated cities only under close guard and only several days after French troops had entered the cities. The journalists have to travel in convoys accompanied by a dozen or more press officers.Several foreign reporters described strictly-timed visits to areas of past fighting that were like tours of movie studio sets or amusement parks. One French daily said the French authorities were “extremely tense in their relations with journalists and the western media in general” (Maria Malagardis, Libération, 22 January 2013).Mali distinguished itself by falling further than any other country in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index . Now ranked 99th out of 179 countries, it fell 74 places in part because of the harassment of community radio stations in the north but also because of media freedom violations in Bamako and the rest of the south since the military coup in March 2012 .Reporters Without Borders is also concerned about the ethnically-motivated hatred and anti-Tuareg sentiment being expressed in some Malian media.Photo : AFP Photo / Pascal Guyot June 8, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Mali Organisation Receive email alerts News February 15, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 French military intervention achieves “zero image of the war front” media objective RSF_en RSF helps coordinate support for French journalist kidnapped in Mali MaliAfrica Help by sharing this information News News News May 5, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

RSF welcomes mandate extension for OSCE Media Freedom Representative Dunja Mijatovic

first_img RSF_en Protecting journalists Freedom of expression Help by sharing this information 24.03.2016 – Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes the extension of Dunja Mijatovic’s mandate as the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media. The Ministerial Council of the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe has agreed to keep Mijatovic in office for another year, as was announced on Wednesday by the OSCE chairman-in-office, German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (www.osce.org/cio/229656).“This decision prevents an important voice for press freedom in Europe and beyond from falling silent for the time being”, said RSF secretary general Christophe Deloire. “For all those caring about free media, it is good news that the German OSCE presidency has succeeded in preventing a vacancy of this important post.”Mijatovic’s mandate would have run out regularly on 10 March after two periods in office. Because the 57 member states of the OSCE have so far not been able to agree on a successor, the post of the Representative on Freedom of the Media was at risk of staying vacant until an agreement is reached (http://t1p.de/i7gg). A decision is difficult to reach since the OSCE statutes demand unanimity. Germany currently holds the rotating OSCE presidency, and since the start of the year, the German Foreign Office has put considerable efforts into finding a candidate palatable to all member states.The Representative on Freedom of the Media is mandated to observe media developments as part of an early warning function and helping OSCE states abide by their commitments to freedom of expression and free media. This includes, inter alia, efforts to ensure the safety of journalists, assist with the development of media pluralism, promote decriminalization of defamation, promote internet freedom and provide expert opinions on media regulation and legislation (www.osce.org/fom).

According to the Tunisian newspaper La Presse, the interior ministry ordered the Le Figaro’s confiscation on the grounds of “harmful content offensive to the Prophet, Islam and Muslims.”last_img read more
