Foto de Jonathan Hanneman vía FacebookLa nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta le pidió a los capellanes que estuvieran presentes y el Rdo. Michael Pipkin, ex capellán de la Armada y miembro del personal diocesano de Minnesota, está coordinando una respuesta. Veintitrés capellanes se habían sumado a la campaña para el 27 de noviembre, entre los cuales había cristianos y budistas. Esos capellanes, que deben tener preparación y experiencia en atención de traumas, estarán presentes para atender a los veteranos y no como manifestantes, dijo a ENS Pipkin, que estuvo en Roca Enhiesta el 3 de noviembre para la manifestación del clero.“Esta vez se trata de estar seguros de que los veteranos que van a estar allí contarán con apoyo”, afirmó. “Vamos a estar allí para ellos”.El temor, dijo Pipkin, es que los veteranos, que podrían haber experimentado traumas en el pasado, acudirán a un lugar que ha experimentado su propia clase de trauma.Capellanes adiestrados que quieran participar en este empeño pueden dirigirse a Pipkin en [email protected] tipo de reunión de clérigos tendrá lugar justo antes de la fecha límite del Cuerpo de Ingenieros. El jefe Arvol Looking Horse, guardián del fardo de la pipa del becerro del búfalo blanco [white buffalo calf pipe bundle], hizo un llamado al clero de acudir a Roca Enhiesta el 4 de diciembre para lo que llamó un día de oración interreligiosa. Esa convocatoria no está conectada con el ministerio de la Iglesia Episcopal en la reserva, según Floberg.La oposición al Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas comenzó este verano y se intensificó en el otoño, atrayendo un apoyo sin precedentes de cerca de 300 tribus indígenas, así como de miembros no tribales y de muchas celebridades. Miles de personas han acampado en varios sitios junto a las vías fluviales de la localidad y ha habido numerosos enfrentamientos con las fuerzas del orden y consecuentes arrestos.Los informes de la prensa dijeron que llegó a haber hasta 10.000 personas en el campamento, pero Floberg dijo que él no tenía una cifra exacta. “Estaban sobrepasando los límites del campamento el otro día”, dijo él.La ruta actual de la construcción del oleoducto pasaría justo al norte de la frontera de la reserva y por debajo del río Misurí y del largo Oahe, que es el suministro de agua de la nación sioux, y por encima de tierras sujetas a tratados [con el gobierno federal] y a través de zonas sagradas [para los indios].En septiembre, funcionarios federales suspendieron la construcción del oleoducto en tierras que bordean o están debajo del lago Oahe que pertenecen al Cuerpo de Ingenieros [del Ejército de EE.UU.], la agencia federal responsable de expedir los permisos para esa construcción en tierras y vías acuáticas públicas. La construcción en el cruce de ese río se ha suspendido a la espera de un análisis ulterior y de conversaciones respecto al potencial impacto del proyecto en la calidad del agua y en el perjuicio a sitios sagrados de la tribu cerca de la reserva.El polémico oleoducto de 1857 kilómetros de largo se extenderá desde los yacimientos petrolíferos de Bakken, en el noroeste de Dakota del Norte, hasta Patoka, Illinois, para llevar diariamente hasta 570.000 barriles de petróleo. Energy Transfer Partners, la compañía con sede en Dallas que está construyendo el oleoducto, dice que la construcción creará de 8.000 a 12,000 puestos de trabajos locales, si bien la AFL-CIO [Organización Americana del Trabajo y Congreso de Organización Industriales] ha reducido la cifra a 4.500. La compañía constructora dice también que ofrecerá una manera “más directa, más económica, más segura y más responsable con el medioambiente” de transportar el petróleo y de reducir el uso actual de transporte por ferrocarril y carretera. – La Rda.

Foto de Stephanie Keith/REUTERS.[Episcopal News Service] La solidaridad de la Iglesia Episcopal con la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta [Standing Rock] se mantiene firme después de nueve días de emotivos eventos en el continuo esfuerzo de proteger la tierra y el suministro de agua de la tribu.La última serie de sucesos comenzó el 20 de noviembre cuando algunas de los centenares de personas que intentaron quitar vehículos quemados que bloqueaban el puente Backwater en la Autopista 1806 en la reserva sioux de Roca Enhiesta en Dakota del Norte fueron agredidos con balas de gomas y empapados por mangueras de bomberos en medio de temperaturas por debajo de 0 F. (-17 C). El puente había estado bloqueado desde una confrontación el 27 de octubre.Siete estudiantes del Seminario del Sudoeste, con sede en Austin, Texas, que fueron en peregrinación a la reserva de Roca Enhiesta, fueron testigos de la confrontación y escribieron al respecto en las redes sociales.“He aquí lo que hemos presenciado esta noche”, escribió Matt Stone en su página de Facebook. “3 cañones de agua, gases lacrimógenos, una granada de conmoción y balas de goma disparadas contra protectores no violentos. Esta es la mayor injusticia de de que jamás haya sido testigo”.El 28 de noviembre, el Colectivo Legal de Protectores del Agua, una organización nacional de abogados, presentó una demanda contra el alguacil del Condado de Morton, Kyle Kirchmeier, y otras agencias de orden público, por el uso de fuerza excesiva durante esa confrontación. La demanda le pide al tribunal de distrito de Bismark que impida el uso futuro de esas tácticas.Unos pocos días antes, el 25 de noviembre, el Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU. impuso una fecha límite para desmantelar el campamento de Oceti Sakowin. Dos días después de eso, el Cuerpo dijo que no desahuciaría por la fuerza a los protectores del agua y a sus partidarios del campamento que se encuentra en la margen del río Cannonball.Luego, el 28 de noviembre, el gobernador de Dakota del Norte, Jack Dalrymple, anunció que imponía una evacuación obligatoria del campamento, citando la severa tormenta de invierno que estaba cubriendo el área de una pesada capa de nieve. La tormenta pasó por encima de Dakota del Norte en la noche del 27 de noviembre y en la zona de la reserva cayeron treinta centímetros o más de nieve de la tormenta que predicen se extenderá hasta el día 30. Las temperaturas durante el día 28 de noviembre estaban justo por debajo del punto de congelación con ráfagas de viento de hasta 64 km. por hora, convirtiéndola en la primera auténtica prueba de los campamentos en las típicas condiciones invernales de Dakota del Norte.Contactado en su casa de Bismarck el 28 de noviembre, el Rdo. John Floberg, sacerdote supervisor de las iglesias episcopales del lado de Dakota del Norte de Roca Enhiesta, le dijo Episcopal News Service que él y los otros episcopales continuaban brindándoles apoyo a los protectores del agua.“Mi primera preocupación siempre es la seguridad de los que han venido a apoyar a [la nación sioux de] Roca Enhiesta y el peligro en que la presencia policial militarizada los coloca”, afirmó.“La Iglesia Episcopal se mantiene donde siempre ha estado”, dijo Floberg. “Estamos en solidaridad con la tribu sioux de Roca Enhiesta como aliados que son devotos, pacíficos, no violentos y legales”.Floberg afirmó la permanente condición de la legalidad, citando como ejemplo una protesta frente a la oficina del Cuerpo [de Ingenieros del Ejército] en Bismarck, la capital de Dakota del Norte, aproximadamente a una hora de distancia [en auto] al norte de la reserva. Debido a que los organizadores no habían obtenido el requerido permiso municipal para la manifestación, “decidí abstenerme de participar”, dijo Floberg.El Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU. ha fijado el 5 de diciembre como la fecha límite que los protectores del agua tienen para abandonar el campamento de Oceti Sakowin. Foto del Bismarck Tribune vía TwitterLa Iglesia Episcopal comenzó a mostrar su apoyo a la campaña de protección poco después de que esta comenzara en serio el pasado agosto. Eso respalda la demanda del Consejo Ejecutivo de que los agentes de orden público “disminuyeran la provocación militar y policial en los campamentos, y en sus cercanías, de los que protestan pacíficamente [contra] el proyecto del Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas”.El coronel John W. Henderson, comandante del Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU. en el Distrito de Omaha, dijo, en una carta del 25 de noviembre, dirigida a Dave Archambault II, presidente tribal de los sioux de Roca Enhiesta, que la decisión de cerrar el campamento de Oceti Sakowin era una medida necesaria para proteger de lo que llamó confrontaciones violentas entre los residentes del campamento y los agentes de orden público “y para evitar muertes, enfermedades o graves lesiones a los habitantes de los campamentos debido a las hostiles condiciones del invierno en Dakota del Norte”.Henderson dijo que los servicios de emergencia, bomberos, atención médica, orden público e “instalaciones sostenibles” no pueden proporcionarse adecuadamente en las zonas al norte del río.Henderson acusó a las personas del campamento de violar regulaciones federales por acampar en esos terrenos, encender fogatas, disponer impropiamente de desperdicios y construir estructuras sin autorización.Él le dijo a Archambault que una “zona de libre expresión” se había establecido al sur del río Cannonball dentro de la reserva de Roca Enhiesta y le pidió al presidente que animara a los miembros de la tribu y a sus partidarios de fuera a “mudarse inmediata y pacíficamente a la zona de libre expresión al sur del río Cannonball o a una ubicación más sostenible para el invierno”.La carta de Henderson no se dio a conocer públicamente, aunque la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta la publicó en su pagina de Facebook.Los que protestan contra el Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas han creado el campamento de Oceti Sakowin al norte del río Cannonball y cerca del pueblo de Cannon Ball, Dakota del Norte. Foto del Departamento del Alguacil del Condado de Morton.Al menos cuatro grupos de protectores del agua replicaron ese día diciendo que no se irían. Advirtiendo que la fecha límite del 5 de diciembre era el natalicio del Gen. George Armstrong Custer, los grupos dijeron que el Cuerpo de Ingenieros no tiene autoridad para desalojarlos porque ellos estaban reclamando tierras que les habían arrebatado a los indígenas.“Nuestros protectores del agua no son intrusos y nunca pueden ser intrusos. El Cuerpo [de Ingenieros] del Ejército no tiene autoridad para reducir nuestro derecho a la libre expresión ¿en qué parte la Constitución establece zonas para el derecho a la libre expresión?, decía la declaración. ¿Deciden ahora las corporaciones donde se aplica la Constitución? No nos mudamos y no seremos silenciados”.Dos días después, en una declaración pública, la oficina del Distrito de Omaha dijo que el Cuerpo [de Ingenieros] no tenía planes de llevar a cabo un desalojo forzoso y que “buscaba una transición pacífica y ordenada a una ubicación más segura”. Los que se queden después del 5 de diciembre “se considerarán desautorizados y pueden estar sujetos a citaciones conforme a las leyes federales, estatales y locales”, según esta declaración.“Desafortunadamente, resulta obvio que más grupos peligrosos se han incorporado a esta protesta y están provocando conflictos a pesar de las exhortaciones públicas de los líderes tribales”, dijo Henderson en la declaración. “Estoy muy preocupado por la seguridad y el bienestar de todos los ciudadanos en estos campamentos en terrenos federales administrados por el Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército, y queremos tener la certeza de que las personas están en un lugar seguro para el invierno. Apoyamos plenamente los derechos de todos los estadounidenses a ejercer la libre expresión y a reunirse pacíficamente, y les pedimos que lo hagan de una manera que tampoco los ponga en peligro a ellos o a los demás ni infrinja los derechos de otras personas”.El campamento de Oceti Sakowin es el desborde de sitios de protesta más pequeños, privados y permitidos que empezaron a crecer en agosto. El Cuerpo de Ingenieros dijo que no había podido expedir un permiso para el campamento de Oceti Sakowin porque había surgido en tierras del Cuerpo que habían sido arrendadas a un ranchero local. A este campamento se le considera la mayor reunión de tribus nativas norteamericanas en un siglo, según Associated Press.Floberg, haciéndose eco de una declaración de Archambault, dijo que “la medida que sería más útil para el Cuerpo de Ingenieros es la de negarle al oleoducto el permiso para pasar por debajo del río Misurí en este punto”.Ya existen planes para construir un campamento de invierno en tierras de la reserva. El consejo tribal sioux aprobó el 19 de octubre invitar a los acampados en Oceti Sakowin a venir a tierras de la reserva a dos millas al sur de la ubicación actual y cerca de la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol [St James’] en Cannon Ball, Dakota del Norte. Floberg dijo a ENS el 28 de noviembre que miembros de la nación arikara han estado trabajando en el sitio. Han desbrozado el terreno para hacer tres pabellones de tierra [earth lodges], explicó él. El apoyo y cuidado pastoral de Santiago Apóstol hacia los protectores del agua probablemente aumentará si ese campamento, que originalmente se planeó para alojar a 500 personas, llega a poblarse, ha dicho Floberg.La fecha límite del 5 de diciembre [impuesta por] el Cuerpo de Ingenieros cae durante una “despliegue” de veteranos de las Fuerzas Armadas de EE.UU. que tendrá lugar en la reserva del 4 al 7 de diciembre como una muestra de apoyo. Se espera que acudan más de 2.200 veteranos.

PFRA revamps its parliamentary lobbying website

first_img  32 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Law / policy PFRA The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) has redeveloped its parliamentary lobbying presence on ePolitix.com as it prepares to lobby parliamentarians during a year that it thinks “could be a turning point for the charity sector”.The ePolitix.com microsite now contains more detailed information about PFRA’s role in regulating face-to-face fundraising (F2F), designed to reach not just MPs and peers but also their researchers.PFRA has operated a presence on ePolitix.com for the past two years. The site itself aims to “provide policymakers with the relevant information to make informed policy decisions”.New sections on the ePolitix site include a researcher’s toolkit, which contains information about F2F fundraising and the PFRA, a policy news feed, giving up-to-date information about ongoing policy meetings and discussions, and a box that shows the local authority areas where PFRA is currently negotiating for fundraising access.Dr Toby Ganley, PFRA’s head of policy, said he hoped that the revamp will help the PFRA find a parliamentary champion for F2F. “2011 will be a massively important year for charities”, he said. “The government is reviewing the Charities Act 2006, including how – and indeed whether – to implement the parts of the that are not yet in force, which includes the unified licensing regime for all types of street fundraising.“At the same time, the Charity Commission is facing having its budget cut by a third and is strategically reviewing its remit and might not be able to undertake the additional roles it has been given in the Act.“So not only do we need to prepare for all the variables this year could throw up, we also need to meet as many parliamentarians as we can to explain what this will mean for their constituents.”www.pfra.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Journalist facing legal action for “public abuse of a member of government”.

first_img Follow the news on France Organisation FranceEurope – Central Asia RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders criticised as “completely absurd and anachronistic” a legal investigation opened against Judith Silberfeld, deputy editor of the monthly gay magazine Têtu, for “public abuse of a member of government”.It was all the more ridiculous “at a time when France has just done away with the offence of insulting a foreign head of state, one of the most archaic clauses of the press law,” said the international press freedom organisation.The daily Libération, in an article published on 12 December 2002, quoted deputy minister for the family, Christian Jacob, known for his opposition to the Civil Solidarity Pact Law (Pacs – a domestic partnership law that includes homosexuals) and to child adoption by homosexuals.In the article he was quoted as saying, “The new family does not mean to be born as the result of an orgy, as I have heard on television.”On 19 December Judith Silberfeld received an email, apparently from the minister’s public relations adviser, Antoine Rault. It said that this quote had been taken out of context and that the minister spent “a lot of time studying the media and television, the running of which he understood very little about”.The journalist from Têtu, “monthly for homosexuals of both sexes” published the contents of the email, which she believed to be genuine, on the magazine’s Internet site. A few hours later Rault, contacted by Silberfeld, said that the email had not come from his service. The journalist said that the minister’s adviser had “seen the funny side of it” and that she immediately took the item of the Internet site and published a correction in which she accepted that she had been the victim of a “clever hoax”.More than a year later, on 8 January 2004, Judith Silberfeld was summoned before a Paris court. She was told by the examining magistrate that she was being investigated for “public abuse”, on the basis that she had used “expressions suggesting that the deputy minister for the family did not have the intelligence that should be expected for someone in his position”. The minister himself said that at the end of 2002 he had lodged a “complaint for defamation against person or persons unknown”.

Moved through BCD Chairman KC Mittal, the petition seeks to challenge the decision of the States of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh of sealing the border with Delhi which has made it impossible for lawyers living in NCR region to access courts and their offices situated in Delhi. While highlighting that the recent MHA guidelines have allowed private offices to operate with limited capacity, the petition cites a statement issued by the Delhi Government on May 08 which states that Chartered Accountants and Advocates shall not be prevented from attending their offices. ‘When residents of Delhi are permitted to access their offices, why should lawyers living in the NCR region be deprived of the same’, the petition asks. The petition further states that: ‘The non-permitting of advocates to cross the border by the officials and authorities at the border of respondents no. 2 (UP government) and 3 (Haryana government) is in violation of fundamental rights under Article 19 (1)(d) (right to freedom of movement) and 301 (freedom of trade and commerce) of the Constitution and their action is highly arbitrary and illegal, the plea said.’ Filed through Advocate Amit Prakash Sahni, the petition claims that lawyers living in different parts of UP and Haryana can’t be stopped from moving in and out of Delhi to operate their offices and perform their official duties. Therefore, the petition seeks a direction to the Respondents to allow movement of lawyers, in and out of Delhi, upon production of their Bar Council identity card. Recently, the Delhi High Court Bar Association had also written a letter to the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court to allow advocates from NCR region to cross Delhi border.
