Reporters Without Borders urges the Commonwealth to expel Zimbabwe

first_img News RSF_en November 12, 2020 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Zimbabwe ZimbabweAfrica Under a new law on access to information and protection of privacy passed on 31 January this year by the Zimbabwean parliament, all journalists now have to have official accreditation that must be renewed each year by a government commission. Those who do not comply risk up to two years in prison and a fine of 100,000 Zimbabwe dollars (about € 2,000). Foreign journalists will be allowed to work in the country only for a limited time and only after they have been approved by the Zimbabwean embassy in their own country. The Zimbabwean authorities are attacking both local and foreign journalists with impunity. Arrests and threats are continual and the independent press is having more and more difficulty informing the public. Zimbabwe no longer respects the ideals of democracy and the rule of law on which the Commonwealth was founded. The 1995 Millbrook Declaration provides for sanctions against member-states who persistently violate human rights. February 27, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders urges the Commonwealth to expel Zimbabwe September 1, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontières – RSF), an international organisation that defends press freedom, has addressed letters to the eight members of the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) to draw their attention to the situation in Zimbabwe on the eve of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Coolum, Australia, from 2 to 5 March 2002. The president and his ministers are multiplying explosive statements against the independent media. The Daily News, the country’s only privately-owned daily paper, is being repeatedly harassed by the authorities. Its editor-in-chief has been arrested several times in recent years. The government and the ruling ZANU-PF party have taken many legal proceedings against the paper and sought large sums in damages in an effort to financially cripple it. Early this month, the paper’s offices in Bulawayo were attacked. Help by sharing this information Reports News ZimbabweAfrica RSF asked the eight ministers of Foreign affairs of the CMAG (Australia, Bangladesh, Barbados, Botswana, Canada, Malaysia, Nigeria and United-Kingdom) to call for the expulsion of Zimbabwe at the forthcoming Heads of Government Meeting. The organisation noted that Zimbabwe is presently one of the countries in Africa with the harshest attitude to press freedom. About 30 journalists have been arrested since January last year, others have been threatened or attacked and several foreign journalists have been expelled from the country. Many foreign correspondents have not managed to get visas to cover the March 9-10 presidential election. President Robert Mugabe is on a world-wide list of 39 “predators of press freedom” that Reporters Without Borders has drawn up.

Widespread Panic Brings Bluesy Grit, Fireworks Both Literal & Musical On First Night Of Trondossa 2019 [Videos]

first_imgAfter leaving Atlanta in ruins at last weekend’s SweetWater 420 Fest, the six-piece leviathan known as Widespread Panic headed to North Charleston, South Carolina this for their Trondossa Music & Arts Festival at Riverfront Park.The spacious outdoor stage provided food, drink, and even a prayer circle to assuage the temperamental spirits beyond. The sun flew high and bright while The Marcus King Band, the Wood Brothers, and Umphrey’s McGee warmed up the stage for the steadily arriving Trondossa guests. The smell of wood-chip smokers and smokey barbecue wafted lazily by the Cooper River to the side of the stage. Attendees were rewarded for their dedication with delicious brisket, cold refreshments, a cool breeze, and best of all, two nights of Widespread Panic. Edie Jackson was also on hand to interpret John Bell’s incantations in her unique dancing A.S.L.Widespread Panic’s John Bell Talks Col. Bruce & The Art Of “Improvising Eloquently” Ahead Of Trondossa [Interview]Kicking off their first of two two-set shows at Trondossa this weekend, Widespread performed a down and dirty rendition of “Tail Dragger”, written by Willie Dixon and popularized by Howlin’ Wolf. As a tribute to the slow-rolling river in the background, the band dove into “Proving Ground”, which demands, “Find out just how tall I am / by jumping in the middle of the river!” The engines rumbled to life as the jam heated up and the day cooled down as night fell.A tribute to the community, “Good People”, followed with JoJo Hermann dancing his fingers all over his piano and JB proclaiming that, “We are the good people / the ones your grandma warned you about!” And the GoodPeople showed up as always, helping each other find lodging and rides to the shows to add that infectious energy that the band feeds on.Jimmy Herring invoked the power of the lightning gods as Dave Schools represented the thunder with a sizzling “Weight of the World” before crushing another raunchy extended take on “Junior”. “Junior” was written by mixing several of Junior Kimbrough’s songs, who shared a record label with JoJo Hermann at Fat Possum Records. A tasty jam meandered its way into a hard-hitting “Rock”, adding another old-school classic to the setlist. “Blue Indian” made another mention to the haunted feel of the festival with “We gotta party goin’ on! / Many spirits strong!” To finish off the first set, Widespread Panic paid tribute to Tom Petty with a ripping version of “Honey Bee”.After a short set break, Panic came back to the stage to cook up a salacious cauldron of sausage gumbo, eventually building up and breaking down before beckoning the audience to “Come and git it!” Dave Schools rode a heavy wave his bass notes plucked with the strength of a biblical golem throughout the psychedelic progressions of “Machine > Barstools and Dreamers”. This “Barstools” was particularly far out, with a glorious cross-fertilization of JoJo and Jimmy’s interplay. JB looked like he was primed to start a “Thank you” rap, but kept the vocals morphing to add to the detailed picture of the song’s imagery stored in banks of his cerebral cortex.After teasing several different songs (“Space Wrangler”, “I’m Not Alone”, “Honky Red”), Jimmy Herring introduced Vic Chestnutt’s “Protein Drink / Sewing Machine”, emerging mid-set with a bass-laden jam powered with Schools jet fuel. Steve Lopez jumped onstage for an exhilarating cover of War’s “Slippin’ Into Darkness”, the audience responding raucously to the words “He loves to drink good whiskey / While laughing at the moon!” A breakdown gave Schools and JoJo the opportunity to inject the reggae rhythms of Bob Marley’s “Get Up, Stand Up”.The muddy blues kept on rolling with another Howlin’ Wolf tune, “Smokestack Lightning”. JB must have eaten his chicken that morning, as his feral, gritty vocals continued to cut deep. Herring took off to intergalactic speeds and wavelengths as Schools began to wander down the Grateful Dead‘s “The Other One” rhythm. Bell returned us the southern plantations with a song as old as the Chicago blues with the scattered raptures of a chicken robber.A long transition full of teases eventually revealed a rocked-out rendition of “Bust It Big”, the first JoJo song of the night. JoJo made it count with a lengthy ride down the river and up the gulf stream to New York City, the home of “Rosemary’s Baby”.To close out the festival’s first night, the band embarked on a well-timed stroll down “Walkin’ (For Your Love)”. The concluding walk included a long pause which cued the onset of a ballistic barrage of fireworks. While the boats on the river never saw the return of the visual board (which had an amoebic pumping blood-like visual), they sure as hell enjoyed the firework show behind the stage. Remaining in the shadows of the fireworks, the band slammed home an equally explosive finish to “Walkin’” as soon as last gunpowder echo faded.The “Slippin’ > Smokestack > Bust It Big > Walkin’” was the heart and soul this performance, stacking the jams into a monster mosaic of musical madness. Both harmonious and, at times chaotic, John Bell and Widespread Panic continued to casually unleash unholy jams of divine proportions to “build you up just to break you down”. The band will return to Riverfront Park to do it all again for the Trondossa crowd tonight.You can check out a selection of crowd-shot videos from the performance below:Widespread Panic – “Protein Drink / Sewing Machine”[Video: Fred Ramadan]Widespread Panic – “Honeybee” [Tom Petty cover][Video: Fred Ramadan]Widespread Panic – “Smokestack Lightnin’” [Howlin’ Wolf cover][Video: Fred Ramadan]As always, you can stream full audio of the performance via PanicStream.Setlist: Widespread Panic | Trondossa Music & Arts Festival | North Charleston, SC | 4/27/19Set One: Tail Dragger, Proving Ground, Good People, Weight of the World, Junior > Jam > Rock, Blue Indian, Honey Bee (60 mins)Set Two: Thought Sausage, Machine > Barstools and Dreamers, Protein Drink / Sewing Machine, Slippin’ Into Darkness* > Smokestack Lightning > Jam > Bust It Big > Walkin’ (For Your Love)** (88 mins)Notes * w/ Steve Lopez on percussion** Fireworks began during pause and continued until end[‘Get Up, Stand Up” jam during ‘Slippin’ Into Darkness’; ‘The Other One’ jam during ‘Smokestack Lightning’; Entire show with Edie Jackson, ASL interpreter]If you’re in North Charleston for Trondossa, don’t miss a very special ROBOTRIO & Friends‘ late-night at Charleston Pour House tonight, Sunday, April 28th, featuring Ryan Stasik & Jake Cinninger (Umphrey’s McGee), The Royal Horns (The Marcus King Band), Kanika Kay Kay Moore & Mike Quinn (Doom Flamingo), & more.For tickets and more info, head here.ROBOTRIOlast_img read more

Brazil state imposes curfews in bid to curb virus

first_img“It is necessary and urgent to impose greater restrictions, after recording extremely high [infection] rates” in the area, Costa said in announcing the measures.”If we don’t act, we could see an explosion of cases and an explosion in demand for beds in intensive care units, which we won’t be able to meet.”The alternative, he said, was “a large number of deaths” in Bahia, which has registered more than 21,000 cases and 700 deaths so far.The area affected by the decree sits at the border between the two Brazilian regions hit hardest by the novel coronavirus: the southeast and northeast. Topics : Authorities imposed curfews Wednesday across a swathe of territory in the Brazilian state of Bahia in a bid to slow the spread of the coronavirus in the country’s hard-hit northeast.With the virus still spreading fast in Brazil — the country with the second-highest caseload, after the United States — Bahia Governor Rui Costa decreed a 6:00 pm to 5:00 am curfew for the state’s 19 southernmost municipalities, effective until June 9.He also ordered the closure of all but essential businesses and services in the same zone, the state government said.center_img The outbreak in Brazil started in the southeast, the country’s wealthy business and industrial corridor.That region, which includes Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, remains the hardest hit, with more than 200,000 cases and nearly 15,000 deaths.But the northeast, Brazil’s poorest region, has emerged as the second-hardest hit, with nearly 195,000 cases and 10,000 deaths.Health officials believe the outbreak in the northeast is being driven partly by poor migrant workers from the region who have returned home after losing their jobs in the southeast because of virus-related business closures and stay-at-home measures.Brazil as a whole has now registered more than 555,000 cases and 31,000 deaths.Experts say under-testing means the real numbers are probably much higher.President Jair Bolsonaro is a vocal critic of stay-at-home measures, arguing they are needlessly hurting Latin America’s biggest economy.The far-right leader has urged businesses to wage “war” on such measures from state authorities.last_img read more

New student housing opens at HSC

first_imgOver the past several months, construction projects such as the University Village have made significant changes to the University Park Campus — however, the Health Sciences Campus has also undergone a process of expansion. The Malcolm and Barbara Currie Residence Hall, a new student housing complex at the Health Sciences Campus, opened for graduate students at the end of July, according to USC News.The hall has 178 residential units and features a fitness center, swimming pool and barbecue grills as well as an “academic success center” that provides computers, printers and two study rooms. The units, which can house around 450 residents total, were entirely booked by the end of May, according to Samantha Grande, the assistant general manager of Currie Hall. “Currie Hall was built in order to have another housing option on campus,” Grande said. “We only had one other on-campus housing complex, so a lot of students were finding housing off campus. With enrollment growing, we wanted to accommodate that.”Students feel that the new facility is an upgrade from the other housing complex in HSC, Seaver Residence Hall. Magdalena Borisov, a graduate student in the Keck School of Medicine of USC, said that students can access more services in Currie Hall than in Seaver, where she lived last year. “Everybody [in Currie Hall] has their own departments. Everyone has their own washing machine and dryer and a kitchen,” Borisov said. “At Seaver, there were only three washing machines and dryers, so it’s definitely more convenient here. There’s more for what you pay.”Currie Hall has experienced some minor difficulties with its infrastructure. On Aug. 4, days after it was finished, a faulty pipe flooded four apartments, according to Grande. The Hall is managed by American Campus Communities, so USC Facilities Management Services was unable to help with maintenance. Despite these difficulties, Currie Hall remains a welcome addition to the Health Sciences Campus, where the last major construction project, other than a parking structure built in 2015, took place in 2009. “It’s very convenient, [and] I like how it’s very cozy it makes me feel at home,” Borisov said. “There are a lot of areas for students to study if I want to study with my friends. There’s free printing, and during the night, there’s security.” Currie Hall was named after USC trustee Malcolm Currie and his wife Barbara, who donated $10 million to Keck and the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience. It is part of a $35 million project aimed to renovate HSC, according to USC Transportation. The project plan includes four main objectives: opening a 200-bed hotel known as Hyatt House for students, remodeling the Norris Health Care Consultation Center, constructing a clinical building dedicated to cancer treatment and beautifying the streets in and around HSC.last_img read more
