New Irish lottery operator could mean

first_img Howard Lake | 3 June 2013 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. 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 Researching massive growth in giving. New Irish lottery operator could mean AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis A report in the Irish Times suggests that if the new rules were applied to last year’s numbers, good causes would have received over €10 million less. The change in the licence is partly to accommodate an enhanced operator’s fee, according to the Irish Times. Earlier in the year Mr Howlin said that a new lottery licence operator would maintain charitable giving at its current level. The Irish minister responsible for the competition for a new lottery operator has gone back on a previous commitment that the amount of money going to good causes would not be affected by the change. Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin at the official launch of the licence competition last week outlined new regulations that will have the effect that good causes will receive substantially less from the National Lottery. According to the press release issued by the Department for Public Expenditure listing the criteria for the licence, the ‘ongoing annual contribution to Good Causes will be set at 65% of Gross Gaming Revenues, which are defined as Sales minus Prizes’. The ‘sales minus prizes’ clause will have the effect of significantly reducing the amount of money available to charities and voluntary groups.

Oscar está ya junto al pueblo

first_imgEl día tan esperado llegó. El 17 de mayo culminó el confinamiento de Oscar López Rivera luego de pasar los últimos tres meses bajo arresto domiciliario en casa de su hija Clarisa López Ramos como requisito para la conmutación de su pena de 70 años por ‘conspiración sediciosa’, otorgada por el ex-presidente Barack Obama. Por fin podía encontrarse con su pueblo, de cara a cara, libremente. Por fin ese pueblo que se unió en el reclamo por su liberación pudo escuchar su voz, clara y fuerte.Para darle la bienvenida pública, decenas de personas comenzaron a aglomerarse cerca de las 6 de la mañana frente al edificio donde reside con su hija. El coro de estudiantes de la Universidad de Puerto Rico le ofreció una serenata, cantando lo que se ha convertido en un segundo himno patrio, Verde Luz, cuya letra incluye la estrofa “para ti quiero tener libre tu suelo, sola tu estrella”; un himno por la independencia boricua.Luego, a las 11 de la mañana en el Escambrón, frente a ese mar que por 36 años estuvo añorando, dio comienzo a su primera conferencia de prensa que estuvo repleta de simbolismos. Comenzó explicando su pedido de que fuera frente al mar, para destacar tanto la importancia de éste para el archipiélago boricua, como por el papel que podría jugar en fomentar la economía. Esto, alusivo a las medidas de privatizaciones de bienes y recursos que la dictatorial Junta de Control Fiscal impuesta por el Congreso de EUA quiere aplicar en el archipiélago para saldar la deuda ilegítima de más de $70 mil millones.Iba vestido enteramente de negro, de luto. Mencionando seis razones para ello que muestran su gran sentido humano y solidario: Porque en prisión nunca pudo vestir de luto luego de la muerte de camaradas y personas queridas, incluyendo la muerte de su madre; por solidaridad con la comunidad LGBTQ en ese Día Internacional Contra la Homofobia y la Transfobia; en solidaridad con el Movimiento Las Vidas Negras Importan; por el amor a su pueblo; por solidaridad con prisioneros y prisioneras políticos en cárceles estadounidenses incluyendo a la puertorriqueña Ana Belén Matos; y por solidaridad con las y los estudiantes de la Universidad de Puerto Rico quienes han estado en huelga desde el 28 de marzo.Importantes declaraciones fueron expresadas por este héroe nacional. Desde sus planes y objetivos, hasta sus posturas políticas revolucionarias.Su firme denuncia de la Junta de Control Fiscal dejó bien clara su postura en defensa del pueblo y contra el imperialismo. “Ninguna solución que salga de la JCF es buena para el pueblo” puntualizó.Momentos críticosLa presencia física de Oscar en el movimiento se da en los momentos más críticos de Puerto Rico. La lucha en este período decidirá si la nación boricua – Borikén, por su nombre taíno – permanecerá y avanzará hacia su soberanía, o si revertirá al “Porto Rico” – nombre dado por los EUA al asumir el dominio, convirtiéndose abiertamente en patio de las especulaciones del capital foráneo, primariamente estadounidense, donde el menguado pueblo boricua que quede, servirá solo de servidumbre a los nuevos habitantes. Ya esto lo notó Oscar a pocas horas de recorrer algunas de las viejas calles que recordaba de joven. Comentó sobre el proceso de aburguesamiento de antiguos vecindarios de clase trabajadora y el notable aumento de residentes estadounidenses. Advirtió sobre el posible peligro de que PR se convirtiera en otro Alaska o Hawái, donde los nuevos residentes estadounidenses se constituyeron en mayoría, afectando así el poder electoral y decisivo.Se lamentó de la fuga de cerebros. Esta fuga, que merma la capacidad productiva de PR al emigrar jóvenes adiestradas/os, profesionales – la mayoría educada en la universidad pública con fondos del pueblo boricua – irán a producir al mismo país que ha impuesto una deuda al archipiélago y ha destruido toda posibilidad de desarrollo económico que beneficie al pueblo y no a las corporaciones foráneas.Criticó las firmas foráneas como la Du Pont y la Monsanto que han inundado al país utilizando a PR como base de experimentos que envenenan el ambiente y destruyen la capacidad criolla.Plan de acciónA pesar de repasar la dura realidad boricua, el mensaje de Oscar fue uno de esperanza y compromiso con la lucha.Esbozó sus planes. Primero, completar su agitada agenda de viajes – al otro día a Chicago donde vivió desde la adolescencia, de vuelta a PR a las 24 horas para ir a San Sebastián donde nació. Además, visitará varias ciudades en EUA, incluyendo a la Ciudad de Nueva York donde depondrá ante el Comité de Descolonización de Las Naciones Unidas.También estará presente el 11 de junio en la Parada Puertorriqueña de Nueva York, lo que ha sido objeto de críticas derechistas. La compañía Goya, cuyos productos son altamente consumidos por la comunidad latina, ha retirado su apoyo al Desfile en Nueva York por lo que informalmente se ha comenzado una campaña de boicot a esa firma por muchos de las/os activistas que han luchado por la liberación de Oscar.Luego de estos viajes, dijo que quiere concentrarse en levantar una fundación cuyo propósito es lograr la unidad, la Fundación Oscar López Rivera, Libertad.La unidad del pueblo boricua la ve como esencial en lograr la descolonización. Sin ninguna clase de sectarismo, señalando que, “Creo en la unidad, creo que podemos crear una carpa amplia donde quepamos todos y todas las que aman la patria porque necesitamos amar la patria para lograr que Puerto Rico sea la nación que tiene el potencial de ser. Si verdaderamente amamos la patria entonces no debe de ser tan difícil unirnos. Hacerlo porque amamos la patria. Porque si no lo hacemos la perderemos. Puedo afirmar con plena confianza que amar la patria no cuesta nada, lo costoso es si la perdemos. Y si continuamos por el rumbo que vamos, Puerto Rico no va a ser nuestra patria”. (, 21 de mayo)Una vez en el terruño borincano, quiere hacer lo que llamó su peregrinaje. Ir a todos y cada uno de los 78 municipios para tener diálogos con el pueblo, escuchar sus preocupaciones y así poder trabajar por la descolonización y la independencia más efectivamente.Saludos internacionalesParte importante del mensaje de Oscar fue el agradecimiento al pueblo que luchó unitariamente por su liberación, incluso bajo diferentes banderas ideológicas.Pero un especial agradecimiento fue para los gobiernos de Cuba y Venezuela, mencionando de forma individual a los Cinco Cubanos.Asimismo, Oscar recibió llamadas y mensajes del Presidente Nicolás Maduro de Venezuela, y de Raúl Castro de Cuba. El mensaje de Fernando González, uno de los Cinco,  fue especialmente conmovedor, pues ambos compartieron una celda durante cuatro años.Con respecto a Venezuela, y en contestación a preguntas hostiles de los medios que lo acusan de defender al Presidente Maduro, Oscar respondió que quien es culpable de la violencia en ese país es la intervención de Estados Unidos. Por eso exige que EUA abandone su injerencia allí.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Two journalists sentenced in absentia to long jail terms

first_img February 24, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders February 18, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo News February 16, 2021 Find out more November 10, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists sentenced in absentia to long jail terms Newscenter_img to go further Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica News Organisation Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Reporters Without Borders and Journalist in Danger (JED), its partner organization in Democratic Republic of Congo, have written to justice and human rights minister Luzolo Bambi Lessa about two separate cases on 2 November in which journalists were given jail sentences in absentia on defamation charges.The two organizations said they did not oppose the fact that defamation actions were brought against these journalists, but they objected to the manner in which they were tried and called for reform of the laws that apply to the press.In one case, the Kinshasa/Gombe magistrate’s court sentenced Africa News publisher Achille Kadima Mulamba to eight months in prison and a fine of 10,000 US dollars on charges of defaming Alexis Thambwe Mwamba Jr, the head of a European Development Fund support unit, by accusing him of embezzlement. Mulamba, who was given no opportunity to defend himself, was also convicted on a charge of “bad faith” for allegedly denying Mwamba the right of reply.In the other case, a court in Beni, in the northeastern province of Nord-Kivu, sentenced Kambale “El Kate” Maghaniryo of Radio Télévision Gabren Beni (RTGB) to 24 months in prison on a charge of defaming a Capt. Bokwala, the head of the Beni border police. The verdict and sentenced were issued in the absence of both Maghaniryo and his lawyer, blocking any possibility of appeal. Maghaniryo has gone into hiding.In their 10 November letter, Reporters Without Borders and JED did not take a position on the substance of the cases, but explained that they were concerned that these convictions would hurt press freedom and, in Mulamba’s case in particular, would undermine the media’s role in combating corruption and promoting good governance.Under article 74 of the criminal code, which was cited by the judge in the Mulamba case and which dates back to the Mobutu dictatorship, the truth or falsity of the disputed claims is of no concern to the court. All that matters, under this article, is whether the plaintiff’s reputation was damaged. It leaves little room for due process.At a time when the decriminalization of press offences is increasingly being debated, Reporters Without Borders and JED deplore the fact that the Democratic Republic of Congo continues to apply iniquitous and archaic laws to convict “troublesome” journalists.The letter also reminded the minister that 29 member organizations of the International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX), a worldwide coalition of free speech groups, voiced their support on 14 September for the appeal that fellow IFEX-members Reporters Without Borders and JED had addressed to President Joseph Kabila on 30 August.The appeal called for a moratorium on imprisoning journalists on charges of defamation or insulting the authorities, so that the media can play their role as a fourth estate in the run-up to the 2011 presidential election and can help combat corruption and any possible attempts at electoral fraud.The letter concluded by urging the minister to ensure that Mulamba is able to defend himself properly, as in any fair trial, when his appeal is heard. Reporters Without Borders and JED said they were convinced that the judges would take account of his arguments. They also called for an equitable judicial review of Maghaniryo’s case.Photo : copyright Luzolo Bambi Lessa, justice and human rights minister ( Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica News Help by sharing this information last_img read more
