ActiveWatch – MMA and Reporters Without Borders condemn acts of violence during protests

The two organizations also denounce basic human rights violations by the riot police, such as the right to free speech, the right to freedom of movement and the right to freedom of assemblyOn 14 January, in Ploiesti (Prahova), protesters threatened, insulted and assaulted journalists and cameramen. During the same evening, protesters at the University Square in Bucharest threw stones against a cameraman for Antena3 TV channel. Journalists of the Romanian public television were threatened and verbally abused and their car stoned by protesters in Bucharest.On 15 January, at the same University Square in Bucharest,- Reporter Petre Nechita and cameraman Dragos Stoian were violently assaulted by protesters;- A protester hit TVR reporter Adelin Petrisor;- Riot policemen hit and detained DC News editor Lucian Negrea;- Several other cameramen and reporters were verbally abused and threatened by protesters.At the same time, the police committed a series of abuses that violated fundamental rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of movement. Over the last four days, the riot police abusively detained people protesting at the University Square, assaulted citizens who were just filming incidents there without taking part in the protest, limited the freedom of movement of citizens from other cities trying to reach Bucharest to join the protest, imposed screening filters in public spaces, abusively checking people’s IDs.On 16 January around the University Square in Bucharest, 113 people were detained by riot police officers who estimated they “had the intention to block the traffic”.These serious abuses, associated with the disproportionate response of the law enforcement agencies against the protests that began peacefully on Friday and Saturday evenings, inflamed and radicalized groups of protesters, who rioted on Sunday evening in scenes of unprecedented violence over the past 20 years.Our organizations would like to remind the law enforcement institutions that their main goal should be to provide a safe environment in which citizens can exercise their constitutional rights during a public gathering.ActiveWatch and Reporters without Borders call on the law enforcement agencies to exercise the use of force against protesters with extreme caution and only as a last resort, in case of acts of violence and to provide protection of journalists and those who document the situation on the ground.- We call for sanctions against policemen and protesters who attacked journalists and citizens who filmed, took pictures or documented the riots at the University Square, as well as those policemen who obstructed the free circulation of citizens trying to reach Bucharest and its public areas.- We recommend journalists to be fully prepared to cover events which may involve violent confrontations, to wear distinctive clothing in order to be easily identified by policemen and protesters.- We ask journalists and citizens to notify to our organizations or other human rights organizations witnessed abuses or attacks.- We also call on the protesters to respect the work of journalists who are professionally compelled to inform the public. Journalists can expose abuses by the law enforcement agencies. We remind protesters that they have the right to film and take pictures of everything that happens in public areas and we recommend them to make use of this right, especially when they have the opportunity to uncover abuses.(Picture: AFP/Getty Images) News to go further News Receive email alerts RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive center_img News News Romania: In an open letter, RSF and ActiveWatch denounce judicial pressures on investigative journalists following a complaint from a Bucharest district mayor RomaniaEurope – Central Asia Organisation May 26, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RomaniaEurope – Central Asia December 2, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

However, the Petitioners states that the number of ambulances provided for the transportation of COVID-19 and NON COVID patients have drastically fallen short, making it very difficult for a person to seek medical treatment during the prevalent lockdown”In light of the above, it is stated that even though the Directorate General of Health Services had prepared a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for transporting a suspected or confirmed Covid 19 cases and had called for independent empanelment of ambulances for meeting the growing demand, “the states have failed to fill in the gaps of ambulance services”.Further to this, the plea states that apart from the shortage of ambulances, the ones which are available have been charging exorbitant rates “under the pretext of covering the cost of PPE’s which are highly essential to be worn by every health care worker, drivers and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) in order to protect themselves from spreading of the virus”.”Due to such difficulties, it is the need of the hour to increase the number of 108 ambulances in all the states which should include even private vehicles used as ambulance especially for NON-COVID patients who can do with BLS (without ventilator) ambulances” The plea also highlights some innovative methods that have been adopted by some states to counter the growing demand for ambulance services and even puts for suggestions that the States could make use of.”….the Government of Haryana in collaboration with Ola started enabling emergency medical trips on its platform. The Petitioners submit that this new category within the app has been designed to provide convenient, reliable and safe transport to riders who need to access a hospital for medical purposes””….the shortage of ambulance and the supporting staff has been undertaken by the State of Tamil Nadu by appointment of district coordinators who have been given the responsibility to coordinate with the government hospitals and primary health centers in finding ambulances for the patients at the earliest”In this backdrop, the petitioner avers that the Centre must use the power bestowed upon it in terms of Section 65 of the DMA, 2005 which is the “Power of requisition of resources, provisions, vehicles, etc., for rescue operations, etc” as well as under section 63 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005 has powers to request officers and authority of the Union and State Governments to make themselves available to perform functions in connection with mitigation of the disaster.Additionally, the petition also seeks fixation of rates chargeable by ambulances per km with advisories for the staff in ambulance with respect to use of health safety equipments like PPE kits.Next Storylast_img read more

Without the worksheets, the students could have just walked through the exhibit without giving much thought to the artwork. Both of these exhibits are full of energy, different energy. And, I love them both.”For Kate Byrne, a freshman from Fairhope, Casey’s exhibit was her favorite.“I like both of the exhibits but I like especially like her subjects,” Byrne said. “I like the way she paints. It’s bold. She paints people and animals and abstracts.”Byrne had a question of her own about the artwork. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Artists Mary Ann Casey’s “Stories and Totems” and Bruce Phillip’s “A Different Perspective,” are the featured exhibits at the JCA.Smith-Wyatt required that the students respond to the artwork and their responses were recorded on worksheets. The questions posed to the students included which art they thought was most original, which took the most time to create and which was liked best and least.

I wonder how much it would cost? Probably, $3,000.”Brandon Li, also, liked both exhibits but his preference was Phillips’ “A Different Perspective.”“I like the way the artist used photographs in his pieces,” Li said. “His perspective is amazing. He uses different topics in each piece but he combines them to make a whole. I like his work. It’s interesting. You have to look closely to understand it.”The Johnson Center hosted a reception for Phillips Friday night and it was well attended by university students and faculty and the community.”“It was a phenomenal experience meeting the community, the college students and professors,” Phillips said. “I got feedback from the college professors as well as from laypersons.”The reception featured an outdoor venue, which Phillips said was more “earthy, more organic.”“That made speaking to each other easy and we were able to engage more readily,” he said. “People were interested in the way I use perspective and themes, especially those that focus on social commentary.”Those who have not yet had a chance to view “A Different Perspective” and “Stories and Totems” or would like to see the exhibits again, are encouraged to take advantage of this last opportunity today and Friday and early on Saturday. JCA hours are from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and until 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Total pulls American Petroleum Institute membership over climate differences

first_imgTotal lists climate issues behind American Petroleum Institute departureTotal raised three key issues it said impacted its decision. These were: the API’s support for the rollback of US regulation on methane emissions, its membership of a group opposed to electric vehicle subsidies, and “differing positions” on the carbon pricing principle.The French company added that the API’s support in recent elections of political candidates who had supported the US’ withdrawal from the Paris Agreement had further influenced its decision.Responding on Twitter, the API thanked Total for its past membership, and said “the world’s energy & environmental challenges are large enough that many different approaches are necessary to solve them & we benefit from a diversity of views”.It added: “As a member-driven org [sic], we don’t support subsidizing energy because it distorts the market & ultimately proves harmful to consumers. Our focus continues to be on taking meaningful action & shaping policy to reduce emissions & ensure access to affordable, reliable energy.”As a member-driven org, we don’t support subsidizing energy because it distorts the market & ultimately proves harmful to consumers. Our focus continues to be on taking meaningful action & shaping policy to reduce emissions & ensure access to affordable, reliable energy. (2/2)— American Petroleum Institute (@APIenergy) January 15, 2021Last year, soon after making its own net-zero commitment, UK oil major BP decided to quit three US trade associations – American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), Western States Petroleum Association (WSPA) and Western Energy Alliance (WEA).At the time, it said it would “actively monitor” its relationships of five other trade groups – including the API – which it found to be only partially aligned with its new approach, and had communicated “clear expectation” over the terms of its continued membership.BP promised another review of its membership with these organisations after two years, potentially setting the scene for another high-profile departure from the powerful US oil and gas lobbyist. The French oil major cited a number of divergences on the approach to climate change, including the API’s support for methane emissions deregulation Total launched a strategic shift towards decarbonisation in May 2020 (Credit: Wikimedia Commons/Laurent Vincenti) French oil major Total has dropped its membership of the American Petroleum Institute (API), citing “certain divergences” between the pair’s positions on climate issues.The company said it reached the decision not to renew its membership for 2021 following a detailed analysis of the US trade organisation’s climate policies, finding only partial alignment with its own strategy.Total, along with several of its European peers, last year launched a strategic shift focused on carbon reduction, and has committed to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.“As part of our climate ambition made public in May 2020, we are committed to ensuring, in a transparent manner, that the industry associations of which we are a member adopt positions and messages that are aligned with those of the group in the fight against climate change,” said Total chief executive Patrick Pouyanné.“This transparency responds to our stakeholders’ expectations, as well as being an essential guarantee of the credibility of our strategy. The group acknowledges the API’s considerable contribution, for over a century, to the development of our industry.”last_img read more
