Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Online growth to offset retail decline in GVC 2019 results

first_img Topics: Finance Sports betting GVC Holdings, owner of the Ladbrokes Coral and bwin.party businesses, has said that it expects to post a year-on-year increase in revenue for 2019, primarily due to growth within its online division offsetting a decline in its UK retail business.In a post-close trading update, GVC said that net gaming revenue (NGR) for the 12 months through to 31 December 2019, is likely to rise by 2% year-on-year.Total online NGR for the period is expected to increase by 13%, with NGR from GVC’s online sports operations forecast to rise 16% and online gaming revenue 13%.While UK retail NGR is expected to fall 12% year-on-year, as a result of the reduction in maximum fixed odds betting terminal stakes, GVC said its European retail business is likely to see NGR climb 4% for the period.Based on these forecast results, GVC said it expects earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) to be at the upper end of a forecast of between £670m (€787.9m/$877.5m) and £680m.GVC noted that its EBITDA forecast was made before taking into account the impact of the International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 16, which provides additional guidance on accounting for leases.“The group’s operational and financial performance in 2019 has been excellent with the strong momentum reported at Q3 continuing throughout Q4,” GVC chief executive Kenneth Alexander said.“The performance continues to be driven by our industry-leading technology, products, brands, marketing capability, people and local execution, all of which is underpinned by our determination to spearhead the industry’s approach to responsible gaming.“As the group continues to deliver the opportunities provided by both the Ladbrokes Coral integration and our sports betting joint-venture in the US, the board is confident that the group is well placed for a successful 2020.”Meanwhile, GVC also published its expected results for the fourth quarter of 2019, during which NGR is forecast to remain level on a year-on-year basis.Online NGR is set to increase 9% year-on-year in the three months through to 31 December 2019, due to an expected 12% rise in online sports NGR and 8% jump in online gaming NGR.UK retail NGR is likely to fall by 11%, primarily due to the ongoing impact of the cut in B2 machine stakes, though GVC did note over-the-counter wagers are set to be up 17% in the period.However, the expected UK decline would be partially offset by a forecast 5% increase in European retail NGR in Q4, with GVC noting a particularly strong performance by its Eurobet Retail arm, where wagers are likely to climb 7%.Aside from this, GVC said that its Roar Digital US joint venture with MGM Resorts made good progress in Q4, citing an exclusive multi-year deal with Yahoo Sports as a significant step for the business.GVC intends to release its preliminary financial results for 2019 on 5 March.Publication of the post-close trading update comes after GVC last week also said that it will consider the potential relocation of its place of management and control – and therefore also its tax residence – from the Isle of Man to the UK.Jay Dossetter, head of media relations at GVC, told iGaming Business that the move will increase the company’s efficiency by allowing key meetings to be based closer to its largest market.

Photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] As the Episcopal Church’s Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PB&F) began discussing the draft 2013-2015 budget here, the members often said they were faced with holding many things in tension.The budget committee met Jan. 30-Feb. 2 at the Maritime Institute’s Conference Center to receive a proposed draft 2013-2015 triennial budget which it will eventually present to the 77th General Convention for its approval this summer in Indianapolis, Indiana. The meeting convened the day after the Executive Council approved the draft version of a balanced $104.9 million 2013-2015 budget and passed it to PB&F.One tension PB&F members discussed centered on responding to the financial challenges faced by dioceses while deciding how much money needs to be spent in support of the denomination-wide mission, ministry and infrastructure of the Episcopal Church.Del Glover, chair of council’s financial committee, told the PB&F group that council had also struggled with what he characterized as the tension between “what’s a reasonable expectation to ask of dioceses and what’s a reasonable expectation for the use of the funds by the [church], and those are two separate issues.”Another tension concerned paying for the costs of the church’s mission and current structure knowing that there have been many proposals to change that structure and, possibly, redefine the direction and focus of the mission and ministry.“I believe it was right three years ago to say we can’t do business as usual but, we all know the tension of doing business as usual while you engage the question of how we cannot do business as usual anymore,” said PB&F member and Diocese of New Jersey Bishop George Councell posing that dilemma.He was referring in part to a decision made at the last meeting of General Convention in 2009 to reduce annually the amount of money asked of the church’s 110 dioceses by one percent from 21 percent of diocesan operating income in 2010 to 20 percent in 2011 and 19 percent in 2012. The resulting 2010-2012 budget was based on $141,271,984 income compared to the $104 million total now envisioned in the 2013-2015 budget based on a 19 percent asking in each year.House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson, left, and Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori talk during a break in the Program, Budget and Finance committee meeting. Photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergThe 2010-2012 budget was $23 million lower than the previous triennium’s and has caused the beginnings of a change in how the denomination’s churchwide staff does its work. That budget assumed that some work being done by churchwide staff could be better done at the diocesan and congregational levels. The churchwide staff has been moving toward helping to network the church’s expertise at all levels, and making its own skills available to those networks and other organizations, rather than developing and implementing programs itself.That change, which the 2013-2015 draft budget proposes to continue and increase, brought with it another tension that PB&F discussed: the question of whether leaving more money in dioceses and congregations will in fact result in more mission and outreach work, or whether it will be used as overall budget relief.Committee member Susannah Perkinson suggested that reducing the amount of money in the budget “involves us trusting congregations and dioceses use the money well if it stays there and perhaps [to] educate [them about the intention] so that they do use it well.”Yet another tension PB&F wrestled with was whether or how the budget ought to be the mechanism for making those changes.PB&F Chair Diane Pollard told the committee “we’re caught between the current process and the desire of many to change that process, and I don’t know that it’s the job of this committee to change the process.”Co-Chair Diocese of Maine Bishop Steve Lane said he was “a voice against cutting the budget because I think we’re cutting blind without this other conversation – one cut is as good as another and there’s no way to decide what moves us further than any other because we don’t know where we’re going.”PB&F member the Rev. Canon Mally Lloyd echoed the tension, saying, “I’m totally conflicted because I think we should do something radically different and I think we get up to the edge and then we back up, and then we get up to the edge and then we back up.”In the end, PB&F agreed to have Lane and Pollard create a work group of committee members to collect information about the various structural change proposals that have recently been discussed. General Convention Secretary Gregory Straub suggested that the group also gather information about such attempts that have been made in the past.“It doesn’t necessarily mean that we will drive all of this but we can have this in front of us and perhaps in the crafting of the budget be supportive of what movements we see developing,” Lane said of the exercise.The draft budget is due to be posted here soon, according to Treasurer Kurt Barnes. He told PB&F that he and his colleagues need time to adjust the document to reflect accurately a number of changes council made to it during the last afternoon of its meeting. When it is posted, the document will include a letter from council explaining the rationale it used to craft the budget.Council had assigned its Executive Committee to design and manage the budget development process, and on Jan. 27 that committee gave council two budget scenarios. One called for asking dioceses to contribute the 19 percent of their income and the other was based on income if dioceses contributed 15 percent. The difference in income was about $13.5 million.Council crafted the final draft version of the 2013-2015 budget by assuming the 19 percent asking and the spending outlined in the 15 percent version. To that spending scenario, council members then ranked their priorities for restoring parts of the budget. Those priorities included investing in emerging networks and supporting existing ones, empowering local ministry and communications.“This is a draft budget and nothing is sacrosanct,” Pollard told the PB&F group early in its meeting. “What is sacrosanct is that we can’t change it between now and General Convention.”What PB&F can do is learn about how the draft budget was crafted and get more details about the work it funds, and it set up a mechanism to do that, including interviewing some members of the churchwide staff. Straub told the committee that it can also consider and file resolutions before convention begins in order to have them considered early in the schedule, if needed.Once at convention, PB&F will convene an open hearing on July 4 (the day before convention’s official start) from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. to discuss the framework of the 2013-2015 budget and to take testimony on a resolution that will ask convention to reaffirm action taken at the last triennial gathering (via Resolution D027) to have the 2013-2015 budget centered on what it called the “strategic priorities” of the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks in Mission.PB&F also is scheduled to hold two other hearings at convention, one on spending decisions the evening of July 6 and revenue decisions on July 7, also in the evening. All three hearings will likely involve small-group discussions moderated by PB&F members as well as time for individual testimony.The committee also plans to set up a moderated website or blog to receive comments about its work from the entire church.Outside of those hearings, the committee will meet daily to work on a budget to propose to convention. As part of that process the members must propose a funding formula that includes determining what percentage of operating income to ask dioceses to contribute. In addition to considering and possibly changing the spending plan contained in council’s proposed draft budget, the committee must also consider all resolutions passed by the convention which have spending implications.The committee is scheduled to present its proposed budget no later than 2:15 p.m. on July 10 to a joint session of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies in the deputies’ hall. A vote in each house is set for July 12, the last day of convention. The budget takes effect Jan. 1, 2013.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj New interactive website aims to help Episcopalians navigate church’s clergy…

first_img Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Smithfield, NC General Convention, A nearly two-year effort to develop an interactive website to help Episcopalians navigate the church’s Title IV clergy disciplinary process came in under budget and will debut this July during the 79th meeting of General Convention.[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] The Episcopal Church’s decades-long process of refining its clergy discipline process will take a big logistical step forward this summer when an interactive website debuts. The site was developed with the hope of bringing a common understanding of the rules and helping clergy avoid getting into trouble and injuring others in the first place.The website is in the beta testing phase, and members of the church’s Executive Council have been invited to join that process. It is scheduled to debut during General Convention in July. The site is designed to help Episcopalians navigate the church’s Title IV clergy disciplinary process (those canons can be found beginning on page 131 of the church’s Constitution and Canons here).Council member Polly Getz, who has long-time experience as a chancellor at various levels of the church, explained to her colleagues April 21 that the website is the result of nearly two years of work by a subcommittee of the Standing Committee on Structure, Governance, Constitution and Canons.The project drew praise from three of the church’s leaders after it was presented to the council.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry noted during a news conference after the end of the meeting April 23 that the invitation to the council to give feedback on the website occurred during the same meeting in which he briefed the members on the report of the Commission on Impairment and Leadership.Both the website and the report and its recommendations address what happens when “people are hurt or wounded,” he said. Each represents “this church’s commitment to be a place where every human child of God is safe, is respected as a child of God made in God’s image and where we can be as sure of that as we can. That’s this church saying to #MeToo: we’re taking that seriously. It is worth putting all this time and energy into this because we’re serious about this.”House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings said, “This has become a project of the heart, mind and soul” for Getz and Diocese of Utah Communications Director Craig Wirth, with whom Getz worked.The website project will “deepen our ability to respond to unfortunate situations in ways that are constructive, positive and help all parties move ahead,” Jennings said.The Episcopal Church has been a leader in addressing and trying to prevent clergy misconduct, according to the Rev. Michael Barlowe, the executive officer of General Convention. The current effort is “a continuing unfolding of the Episcopal Church’s historic emphasis on making our church the safe church that we want to be.”Barlowe also pointed to the work of the General Convention Task Force to Update Sexual Misconduct Policies. The group recently released updated safe church policies.A model policy for the protection of children and youth is here, as well as one for the protection of vulnerable adults here. A frequently asked questions document is available here.“This is yet another example of how the Episcopal Church is trying to walk its talk,” Barlowe said.Executive Council member Polly Getz of San Diego briefed her colleagues on the construction of an interactive website to help Episcopalians learn how to live into the spirit of the church’s clergy discipline rules, known as Title IV. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceGetz told Episcopal News Service after the council concluded its meeting here that, despite the best efforts of those who have had a hand in rewriting the clergy discipline rules and trying to streamline them, those rules have gotten more complicated. “The more important reason for wanting to do the website is that we had folks across the church doing [Title IV] training and they were not necessarily interpreting what they were reading in the same way,” Getz said. Those differences have led to inconsistencies in how the canons were being interpreted and “lived into,” she added.Plus, Getz said, the website pays more attention to Title IV’s theological underpinnings than previous training efforts, including the importance of grounding clergy discipline in the principles stated in the preamble to the rules. “By virtue of Baptism, all members of the church are called to holiness of life and accountability to one another,” that canon says. “The church and each diocese shall support their members in their life in Christ and seek to resolve conflicts by promoting healing, repentance, forgiveness, restitution, justice, amendment of life and reconciliation among all involved or affected.”Getz said chancellors always discuss how Title IV is being used across the church. “The conclusion has been, for the last 15 years, that no matter how much we study and talk about it, we still end up with folks interpreting it differently in one place versus another,” she said. Her hope for and the objective of the project are to rectify those situations and help the church develop a common understanding of the process and its goals.“I believe if everyone fully understands and works with and implements Title IV in the manner in which it was written, we will achieve our goals of fairness, of justice, of transparency and so forth, creating meaningful opportunities for restoration, for amendment of life, reconciliation to the church,” Getz said.The work that resulted in the website came in response to Resolution A150 in which the General Convention called in 2015 for the development and implementation Title IV training materials for the church.The subcommittee joined with Wirth and Diocesan Communications Assistant Halle Oliver to develop the website, which Getz said came in under budget.One part of the new website, titled General Education and Best Practices, has about 250 videos on various topics involved in clergy discipline. Each video runs about 2:30 minutes and features Episcopalians who have had experience with implementing the Title IV canons.One part of the site, titled General Education and Best Practices, has about 250 videos that run about 2:30 minutes each. Getz and Wirth sought a variety of bishops, priests and deacons, including the current and previous presiding bishops, to contribute to the section, its explanation says. There are also contributions from experts in theology, church law, church administration and communications, as well as from those who have studied and revised Title IV since the early 1990s.“We wanted the broadest possible spectrum of leaders in the church to talk about their experiences, to talk about what they have found to be best practices, flowing from the nitty-gritty of the canons,” Getz said.The other part of the website is more technical, she explained. It outlines the roles of what she called various “stakeholders” in the disciplinary process. The section offers a method for each participant to understand his or her responsibilities and to see alternatives and possible outcomes at each step of the process, as well as to observe the big picture, according to the page’s explanation.While information in that section is “derived from the canons after considerable research and reflects each step as determined by a committee of those who are recognized authorities of Title IV, it is not intended to be the sole source of canonical law for use in the Title IV proceedings,” the explanation says.The site will also offer a frequently asked questions page, a glossary and a library of templates for the many forms used in the Title IV process. The site is optimized to be responsive on all devices from desktop computers to mobile phones.The other main part of the website offers a step-by-step process of a Title IV proceeding for each participant in the process.Episcopal Church canons have expressed concern about clergy behavior since the General Convention in 1789 made it wrong for clergy — except “for their honest necessities” — to “resort to taverns, or other places most liable to be abused to licentiousness.”That original Canon 13 also warned that clergy who “[gave] themselves to base or servile labor, or to drinking or riot, or to spending their time idly” would face a range of disciplinary actions.The church ever since has been refining its answer to the question of how best to discipline errant clergy. The tradition continued at the 77th meeting of General Convention in 2012 when bishops and deputies tweaked the then-current version of the Title IV disciplinary canons that had been in use for just more than a year.There were more changes to come. In 2015, bishops and deputies approved several Title IV revisions, including adding sanctions for those who may attempt to delay or disrupt the disciplinary process, and allocating money for training materials to help streamline proceedings. As the subcommittee began to do its work, it realized that perhaps it needed to “break out of the mold of how the wider church gets its projects done,” Getz said.Diocese of Utah Chancellor Steve Hutchinson, who has been deeply involved in Title IV revisions, suggested that the subcommittee work with Wirth. Getz said Wirth brought fresh eyes to the projects and helped the group see there might be a better way to present the training materials than the way that people whom she called the “linear lawyers” have always done it. She said they look at the discipline process and potential training materials through a timeline approach.Getz said, “People have tried for several years to create flow charts of how Title IV works; I have yet to see one that you could logically follow.”Wirth told ENS that his work in integrative marketing communications and broadcast news has always been driven by providing material in a way that serves the audience. In the case of the clergy discipline process, there were multiple audiences ranging from clergy to people who feel they have been mistreated to lawyers to every Episcopalian to those outside the church who watch how it handles these issues. He proposed a website built, in part, around the stakeholders in the process so each could learn about their roles and see how they interacted with the roles of others.An interactive website made sense, Wirth said, because “online learning is not the future; it’s the present.”Thus, the subcommittee developed a different way to look at the process. Users can click on one stakeholder category, see the squares on the webpage’s grid light up if they relate to that person, and follow those responsibilities for that stakeholder. However, that person can also look at the roles of other participants and how they fit together.Wirth said he thinks the site’s other goal of presenting best practices and teaching about clergy discipline issues is perhaps even more important that the process side. A major success for the website in his eyes, he said, would be “preventing Title IV incidents” in the future.As such, the best practices section includes people offering what Wirth called “very frank discussions” about the pressures, stresses and obligations that come with living an ordained life. Clergy promise in their ordination vows to do their best to live their lives “in accordance with the teachings of Christ,” so that they “may be a wholesome example to all people.”Getz and Wirth said they hope seminaries and local clergy formation programs especially will make use of those videos so that more and more new clergy will be schooled in the process and aware of how to protect the people they are meant to shepherd. Getz sees the website as offering a flexible way for formation programs to provide students with uniform knowledge about the rules and their intentions.For instance, Getz said, some clergy members are concerned about the canonical requirements that they report when they see what they fear are possible violations by other clergy. They need to understand that such reporting is meant to open the possibility for someone in authority “to intervene where risky or dangerous behavior is noticed and stop the conduct from going further, whether it’s through counseling or issuing a pastoral directive or something else” so that it doesn’t result in some sort of abuse and a claim of clergy misconduct.— The Rev.

The valorization of media-ready “victims” in our nation has created a subculture of false accusers and opportunists who make it their lives to be hyper-critical of anything that does not affirm them. That reality awaits anyone who steps into the forefront of leadership. It makes one wonder why anyone would want to subject themselves to that, especially someone who has already given up so much to become ordained. If the Title IV process has a downside it is that there is an enormous financial and emotional strain to often prove a negative; namely that the clergy accused is innocent. We all get it: clergy abusers in the ranks destroy a trust and create damage and should be held to account. But, just sometimes, the sheep are not so innocent and are bleating falsehoods. I would like to see ENS research a story on the cost of those false accusations. It likely has some intersection with how fewer people desire a life of ordained ministry.

May 8, 2018 at 10:19 am My experience is that Title IV simply doesn’t work, as diocesan officials invoke the “weighty and material” clause to avoid dealing with anything that doesn’t involve sex or jail time. Yet the vast majority of clergy misconduct doesn’t involve either, meaning that Title IV is a paper tiger.It is my experiences in this realm that have led me to renounce both my membership in The Episcopal Church and organized Christianity. I have no use for a church that thinks that retaliation by clergy for a good-faith complaint of potential clergy misconduct is “not of weighty and material importance to the ministry of the church.” Something about respecting the dignity of every human being….

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Venezuela después del apagón/Movilización masiva responde al ataque imperialista

first_img17 de marzo – Una nueva movilización masiva antiimperialista llenó las calles de Caracas el día 16 de marzo, celebrando una nueva victoria contra los ataques del imperialismo estadounidense. Es otra prueba del aumento de la organización y movilización del pueblo venezolano. La nueva fase de la agresión imperialista buscaba destruir de una vez el proceso bolivariano pero falló, y ahora se encuentra estallido contra un pueblo venezolano que ha renovado su organización popular y antiimperialista.Según fuentes oficiales la electricidad ha sido restaurada en Venezuela desde el 15 de marzo, luego de un apagón que empezó el día jueves 7 de marzo. El apagón, que duró una semana en algunas partes del país, fue resultado de un fallo en la planta hidroeléctrica conocida como “El Guri.”Los gobiernos de Venezuela, Cuba y Rusia han denunciado varias formas de ataques contra el sistema eléctrico. La principal ha sido cibernética, con varios ataques dirigidos, según declaraciones del presidente Nicolás Maduro, desde Houston y Chicago.Esta parece ser la principal causa del apagón, ya que logró desactivar el sistema de captura y control de datos de la red eléctrica. Incluso la publicación Forbes, que se autopresenta como una “herramienta capitalista”, publicó un reporte detallando que sería muy realista para la inteligencia estadounidense hacer un ataque cibernético contra Venezuela. (March 9, forbes.com)El periodista Max Blumenthal reveló que la organización CANVAS, que evolucionó de grupos que desestabilizaron la ex-Yugoslavia, había publicado un plan para Venezuela que incluía un apagón como evento catalizador de una rebelión contra el gobierno. Esta organización recibe fondos de agencias estatales estadounidenses y entrenó a Juan Guaidó y varios de sus aliados. (tinyurl.com/yxl6th8w)También se reportaron varios ataques físicos, como la detonación de subestaciones, y de alta tecnología que utiliza ondas electromagnéticas para interferir en varias estaciones de distribución. También reporta teleSUR explosiones en la principal instalación petrolera del país. (tinyurl.com/y53dy9lt)Por otro lado Juan Guaidó, el autoproclamado presidente interino, culpa al gobierno de no mantener la red eléctrica. Es cierto que hace falta más inversión en la infraestructura nacional, pero hay que recordar que el bloqueo financiero impuesto por los Estados Unidos ha causado la pérdida de miles de millones de dólares que el gobierno podría haber usado para modernizar los sistemas digitales y comprar partes de repuesto, entre otras necesidades.La hipocresia imperialistaLos medios corporativos internacionales se han enfocado en Venezuela en los últimos meses, publicando historia tras historia del sufrimiento del pueblo venezolano. Es muy poco probable que esta decisión se hace por razones humanitarias, ya que con su reportaje han demonizado al gobierno legítimo y crearon la narrativa que justifica la política injerencista de Trump.Durante el apagón, CNN y el New York Times publicaban historias de agua negra, culpando siempre al gobierno “corrupto.” Pero en Flint, Michigan no ha habido agua potable durante años, y los medios corporativos parecen haberse olvidado.Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Elliott Abrams, y Marco Rubio hablan mucho de “ayuda humanitaria” y su gran preocupación por el pueblo venezolano. Toda la información que existe sobre ellos desmiente esa ridícula ficción.Bolton y Abrams no han hecho más que destruir países y cometer crímenes de guerra en todo el tiempo que han trabajado en la política. Marco Rubio se pasa el día imponiendo la voluntad del imperialismo en América Latina mediante amenazas en Twitter y el Senado.Pompeo fue director de la CIA antes de asumir el cargo de Secretario de Estado, por lo que no podemos saber todos sus crímenes. Pero como ejemplo de su gran sentimiento humanitario, recientemente anunció que bloqueará la entrada de cualquier individuo que investiga los crímenes de EUA en Afganistán. (AP, March 15)Mientras sus oficiales amenazan la guerra contra Venezuela, Donald Trump ha declarado un estado de emergencia para construir un muro fronterizo, llegando a usar el veto presidencial para defenderlo. Esto se suma a la separación de familias migrantes, y la práctica de poner a los niños en campos de concentración.Pero quizás el ejemplo más insultante de la hipocresía del imperialismo es, como en muchas instancias, Puerto Rico. Después del huracán Maria el archipiélago estaba sin electricidad y agua durante meses, y algunas partes siguen así.Mientras el gobierno estadounidense, mediante una junta fiscal, destruye lo que había sobrevivido el huracán, el gobierno de Nicolás Maduro envió combustible. Ahora, la policía y mercenarios reprimen con fuerza al pueblo boricua y la gente viaja horas para encontrar clínicas de diálisis operativas. Todas las peores mentiras del imperialismo sobre Venezuela son realidades para Puerto Rico durante casi dos años.Solidaridad y organización para derrotar al imperialismoA pesar de lo que dicen los medios de comunicación internacionales, Venezuela no ha caído en el caos. La respuesta del pueblo venezolano ante el apagón ha sido organizarse a nivel comunitario para satisfacer las necesidades.Por su parte, el gobierno puso en función varios planes para asegurar el funcionamiento de los hospitales, y distribuir agua potable. En las zonas donde no podían llegar con los camiones del gobierno, las comunidades se encargaron de encontrar y distribuir el agua.Organizaciones de base como los CLAP, que distribuyen cajas de comida, seguían funcionando durante toda la semana, e incluso algunas comunidades se organizaron de forma espontánea para juntar los recursos y la información que tenían.El poder popular en Venezuela se ha puesto en las primeras líneas del conflicto, para defender la soberanía y asegurar los derechos básicos de la población. Este poder se expresa mediante las más de 500 comunas formadas por miles de consejos comunales en los barrios populares.Además de coordinar los esfuerzos de asegurar los derechos básicos, las comunas organizan las milicias populares. De esta manera se defienden tanto en términos literales, con el pueblo organizado y armado, como en términos más abstractos como asegurando la distribución de agua y comida.El bloqueo financiero, en forma de sanciones unilaterales, es la única jugada del imperialismo que se puede decir que fue exitoso. Los ataques “guarimberos” en 2014 y 2017 no lograron derrocar al gobierno bolivariano por la fuerza. La autoproclamación de Guaido y el intento de ingresar camiones estadounidenses tampoco provocó el quiebre que se buscaba en la Fuerza Armada Nacional Bolivariana.Por ahora, sigue el riesgo de nuevos ataques contra el sistema eléctrico del país y el bloqueo financiero, ampliada desde enero a ser un bloqueo petrolero, de los Estados Unidos sigue causando problemas en la economía venezolana. Hay que prepararse para un asedio prolongado, en la cual será decisivo tanto que el pueblo venezolano desarrolle la organización y capacidad de producción doméstica como el movimiento de solidaridad internacional luchando para terminar con el bloqueo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information October 2, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to Margaret Chan, WHO director, about the contaminated milk powder scandal June 2, 2021 Find out more The latest developments in the Chinese contaminated milk powder scandal show very clearly that the system of censorship imposed by the government has had a disastrous impact on the health of tens of thousands of new-born babies in China and other countries to which its milk products are exported. Reporters Without Borders urges Margaret Chan to intercede with the authorities in Beijing as quickly as possible on this matter. China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Receive email alerts Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Dr. Margaret ChanDirector-GeneralWorld Health OrganisationAvenue Appia 201211 Geneva 27SwitzerlandParis, 1 October 2008 RSF_en ChinaAsia – Pacific Organisation center_img News to go further Dear Director-General,You have often spoken publicly of the importance of the free flow of information about public health issues. The latest developments in the Chinese contaminated milk powder scandal show very clearly that the system of censorship imposed by the Chinese government has had a disastrous impact on the health of tens of thousands of new-born babies in China and other countries to which its milk products are exported. Many babies have been poisoned because journalists and researchers were unable to publish their information.An official in your organisation has stressed to the media the importance of a “culture of openness and rapid reporting” in this kind of crisis. For your part, you have said Asian woman should breast-feed rather than use powdered milk products, but that does not seem to be an adequate response to this tragic situation.How can you accept that the World Health Organisation was not notified until 11 September of the toxicity of these products although information had been circulating since December 2007? As early as last July, He Feng, an investigative journalist with a weekly in southern China, had gathered detailed information on a wave of hospitalisations of babies. But the Chinese government, through the Propaganda Department, imposed a ban on publishing negative information about food scandals before and during the Olympic Games. So He Feng’s editor decided not to publish his information for fear of being punished by the authorities.Just before the Olympic Games, the Propaganda Department sent a list of 21 banned subjects to the news media. One of them (point 8) was food safety. “All subjects linked to food safety, such as mineral water causing cancer, are off-limits,” the directive said.The authorities have even suppressed a blog entry by Fu Jianfeng, He Feng’s editor, who did not dare publish what they had learned. “I sensed that this was going to be a huge public health disaster,” Fu wrote in the censored post.We thought the Chinese authorities and the WHO had learned the lesson of the SARS crisis, which the authorities covered up for several months by censoring the press.To our great regret, the highest authorities in Beijing continue to impose censorship on public health subjects. We urge you to speak out publicly against these repressive and dangerous practices as they are harmful to the health of both Chinese citizens and the population of neighbouring countries.Your organisation has published figures that show the scale of the harm cause by the tainted milk scandal: more than 54,000 children have been treated, 12,000 have been hospitalised and at least four have died.At the same time, the WHO has publicly congratulated itself on its ability to react to this crisis and has hailed the cooperation it has been receiving from the Chinese authorities in all areas, including its “regular updates.” Should not a sterner comment have been made to the Chinese government for continuing to prioritise news control at the expense of its citizens’ health?As we know you are committed to press freedom, we urge you to intercede with the authorities in Beijing as quickly as possible on this matter.I look forward to your reply.Sincerely,Jean-François JulliardSecretary-General April 27, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on China China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures March 12, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific Newslast_img read more

first_imgNewsLocal NewsRAPID regeneration sought for RathkealeBy admin – September 27, 2011 1217 “Rathkeale is similar to areas of Limerick city currently under regeneration.’A REGENERATION project, similar to that in Limerick city, is being sought for the county town of Rathkeale. Seeking progress on the allocation of funding under the RAPID (Revitalising Areas by Planning, Investment and Development) scheme, Deputy Niall Collins has told the Minister for the Environment, Phi Hogan that “Rathkeale needs something similar to the regeneration projects going on in Limerick city.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking in the Dail he said that Rathkeale is similar to areas of Limerick city currently under regeneration.“There are deep-rooted social problems and derelict properties with all the social fall out which goes with that,” he said.The Limerick West TD queried the minister as to whether the funding, which was announced under the RAPID scheme in 2009, would be made available for investment in the town this year.Speaking to the Limerick Post he said:”I’m looking for the budgeted money that isn’t spent at the end of the year to be allocated to Rathkeale.,“If the funding is not available from the Dormant Accounts, from which it was initially to come, then I’m hoping it will come from savings made elsewhere”.However, Minister Hogan says :the dormant accounts capital budget for his Department is fully committed to existing projects.“Our priority in the light of the available allocation must be to ensure that there is sufficient funding to meet existing legal contractual commitments,” he said.However, when asked for a commitment to prioritise RAPID funding and to make it available this year, Minister Hogan responded:: “The problem is that five areas were identified under the Dormant Accounts Fund, but no money was provided in 2011.“In the context of that fund, I am doing my best to see if I can get some resources for some of the projects in order to give the identified areas a lift.“Hopefully we can come to some resolution of the matter in the interests of the people of that area between now and the end of the year”.During the Dáil exchange, Deputy Collins spoke in further detail about the situation in the West Limerick town.“Rathkeale is the second largest town in County Limerick and it has severe social and physical problems.“Some members of the Travelling community use the movement as a front when, in fact, they are engaged in criminality.“There are major problems there.“Tourism organisations, hoteliers and the agencies promoting the area have dropped the name and symbol of Rathkeale from maps, which is quite serious”.Deputy Collins said that he had met the community council in Rathkeale a number of times and asked that Minister Hogan meet with the group and walk the streets of the town, street by street.
