Foto de Amy Sowder.[Episcopal News Service] Don Robinson sostiene una hoja de col rizada en la mano derecha, apuntando hacia el cielo, mientras levanta la mirada en una oración silenciosa.Robinson, de la Diócesis de Massachusetts Occidental, se encontraba entre más de 200 episcopales y anglicanos procedentes de tan lejos como Alabama, Oregón y Sudáfrica, algo apiñados en el espacio que les habían asignado en la calle 58 del centro de Manhattan.Se encontraba allí en defensa del derecho humano de salvar a la Tierra y a todos sus seres vivientes de los efectos multiplicadores del cambio climático. “Tenemos una responsabilidad como mayordomos de la creación de Dios”, dijo Robinson.El domingo 21 de septiembre, más de 310.000 personas de todas las religiones participaron en la Movilización Climática de los Pueblos, la mayor demostración sobre el tema del clima de la historia, el mismo día en que tenían lugar una serie de eventos religiosos afines, entre ellos un oficio vespertino multirreligioso en la catedral de San Juan el Teólogo [St. John the Divine] en Nueva York.Episcopales de toda la nación y de algunos otros países se reunieron en una sección interreligiosa de la Movilización Climática de los Pueblos que tuvo lugar el 21 de septiembre en Nueva York, y en la que portaban carteles y pancartas de protestas, al tiempo que cantaban, oraban y coreaban consignas. Foto de Amy Sowder.La manifestación hizo un recorrido de 3.5 kilómetros de largo, desde la calle 93 y Central Park West hasta la calle 34, pasando por Columbus Circle y Times Square. Cerca del final, el contingente episcopal portaba carteles en los que podía leerse “No hay Planeta B”, “Por amor de Cristo, graven al carbón” y “Estoy manifestándome a favor de la vida silvestre (la cual también incluye a los humanos)”.La marcha fue auspiciada por más de 1.200 organizaciones, entre ellas las mayores entidades ambientalistas de la nación, sindicatos obreros, agrupaciones de carácter religioso y defensoras de la justicia social.Es un movimiento que trasciende a Nueva York e incluso Estados Unidos. Más de 2.800 eventos de solidaridad se llevaron a cabo en 166 países, y se produjeron manifestaciones desde Sydney, Australia y Budapest, Hungría, hasta Dar es-Salam, en Tanzania y Dhaka en Bangladesh.La iniciativa global se programó para dos días antes de la Cumbre de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Clima, convocada por el secretario general Ban Ki-moon, que empezó el 23 de septiembre en la sede principal de la ONU en Manhattan. La cumbre aplazó un día el debate general de la 69º. sesión de la Asamblea General de la ONU, que se extiende desde el 16 de septiembre hasta el 1 de octubre. Ban, que también tomó parte en la manifestación, invitó en la cumbre a líderes de gobiernos, las finanzas, las empresas y la sociedad civil a hacer audaces anuncios de que tomarán medidas para reducir las emisiones [de hidrocarburos], fortalecerán la resistencia climática y movilizarán la voluntad política para alcanzar un importante acuerdo legal en París en 2015.Además de Ban, algunos de los participantes más conocidos en la manifestación fueron el vicepresidente Al Gore, el legendario músico Sting, y los actores Leonardo DiCaprio y Mark Ruffalo.Entre tanto, los líderes de las iglesias Episcopal y Luterana emitieron juntos un mensaje pastoral sobre el cambio climático el 19 de septiembre.El cambio climático “va a afectar primero a los más pobres de nosotros”, dijo el hermano Bernard Delcourt de la Orden de la Santa Cruz, un monasterio benedictino anglicano de West Park, Nueva York. “Las personas que dependen de recursos naturales para su subsistencia en países en desarrollo ya están siendo afectadas”.Lella Lowe, miembro de la iglesia episcopal del Redentor [Episcopal Church of the Redeemer] en Mobile, Alabama, programó sus vacacione para asistir a la marcha. Ella esperaba crear la Coalición de Mobile en pro de la Justicia Medioambiental al objeto de evitar que Mobile se convirtiera en un importante centro de transporte de arenas alquitranadas.“O bien tienes un movimiento con dinero o un movimiento con gente, y cuando no tienes el dinero, tienes que motivar a la gente”, dijo Lowe. “Es hora de ver nuestro mundo como interconectado y que todo lo que hacemos afecta a los demás. Es algo crucial, y hay [muchos que] no quieren reconocerlo”.Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner estaba preparada para compartir su historia en la ceremonia de apertura de la Cumbre de la ONU sobre el Clima el 23 de septiembre. Dos días antes, la joven madre de las Islas Marshall subió al escenario entre otros varios activistas en una conferencia de prensa previa a la manifestación para decirle a la concurrencia cómo su país estaba en peligro de desaparecer debido al aumento del nivel del mar causado por el calentamiento global. Su isla está a dos pies sobre el nivel del mar.“Debemos actuar ahora. No podemos esperar. Sólo tenemos una tierra a la que llamar patria. Los necesitamos”, dijo Jetnik-Kijiner.La Movilización Climática de los Pueblos en Nueva York, encabezada por comunidades indígenas y por las que, procedentes de todas partes del mundo, resultan más expuestas al desproporcionado impacto del cambio climático: desde comunidades que fueron severamente afectadas por el huracán Sandy a las que viven cerca de las plantas de carbón y de refinerías de petróleo o de naciones isleñas que ya están contemplando la evacuación. Foto de Amy Sowder.Durante la manifestación, personas y agrupaciones, con diferencias políticas, religiosas y de otro tipo, se unieron en torno a un tema común. Los grupos interreligiosos se juntaron con científicos para la sección “El debate se acabó”. Otros grupos incluían a sindicatos obreros, agrupaciones de justicia medioambiental, defensores de la energía renovable, defensores de la justicia en materia de agua y comida, campañas anticorporativas y comunidades indígenas.En la sección interreligiosa, los episcopales desfilaron con judíos, bautistas, menonitas, agnósticos, cuáqueros, humanistas éticos, presbiterianos, metodistas y hare krisnas.Una mezquita inflable flotaba sobre una réplica de madera del arca de Noé. Globos terráqueos se balanceaban sobre la marea humana.Meteorólogos de la Administración Nacional Oceánica y Atmosférica anunciaron la semana pasada que este verano era el más caliente que se hubiera registrado en todo el planeta.“A pesar de los empeños de la ONU, los estados miembros no han hecho lo que debe hacerse —ni siquiera se han acercado— y los niveles de carbono han aumentado, no han disminuido. No sólo es más preocupante que nunca, es moralmente erróneo” dijo el Rdo. Canónigo Jeff Colliher de la iglesia de San Juan [St. John’s Church] en Ellenville, Nueva York, y presidente del ejecutivo del Comité sobre el Medioambiente de la Diócesis Episcopal de Nueva York.Gran parte del problema, dijo él, está creado por las políticas energéticas de las tres mayores economías con mayor crecimiento poblacional: Estados Unidos, China e India.Esos países deben contemplar la manera de crear una energía más limpia que la proveniente de combustibles fósiles, dijo Golliher, porque la creación de energía exige muchísima agua, “y estamos contemplando escasez de agua”.“Podemos estar creando soluciones que beneficien a los ricos más que a los pobres”, dijo Golliher, que asistió a la conferencia anual del Instituto Internacional del Agua en Estocolmo del 31 de agosto al 5 de septiembre. “El problema moral no es si el cambio climático es real —la mayoría de la población ya está enterada de esto. Es qué tipo de debate estamos teniendo para crear una economía basada en derechos humanos y en una sostenibilidad para que todos medren”.La Academia de Ciencias Nacional de EE.UU. publicó el resultado de una investigación en 2013 en que mostraba los abruptos cambios climáticos que ya están sucediendo, si bien otras amenazas potenciales no son tan inminentes. Las temperaturas más cálidas del Ártico han causado un rápido descenso en el hielo del mar durante la última década. El aumento de los niveles del mar amenaza las regiones costeras y las islas.Científicos de la Academia informan que otro abrupto cambio climático se encuentra en marcha: la creciente extinción de especies animales y vegetales debido al ritmo actual del cambio climático, un episodio de calentamiento que se espera aumente a lo largo de los próximos 30 a 80 años. El número de días libres de heladas, la longitud y el ritmo de las temporadas de cultivo y la frecuencia e intensidad de los fenómenos extremos son ejemplos de cambios que están ocurriendo tan velozmente que ningún cambio o adaptación resulta lo suficientemente rápido. Combinados con otras causas de pérdida de hábitat, degradación y desmedida explotación, el problema es aun peor, según el informe.Luego están los crecientes períodos de sequías en el oeste de EE.UU., en el norte de Irán y en África. “Lo que más les preocupa a los científicos es la imprevisibilidad, porque es incontrolable”, dijo Golliher.“Las emisiones de carbono son tan sólo un problema. Es el indicador. Tiene que ver con el poder, la igualdad y la justicia. ¿En qué clase de mundo queremos vivir?”, preguntó Golliher.Aunque el número inicial de participantes en la Movilización de los Pueblos del Mundo a las 2:00 P.M. del domingo 21 de septiembre en Nueva York se calculó en unos 310.000, para las 5:00 P.M. tantos otros se incorporaron que la participación final ascendió a cerca de 400.000 personas. Foto de Amy Sowder.Mientras legiones de personas inundaban las calles de Manhattan para enviar un mensaje a los miembros de la ONU, 30 líderes religiosos, en representación de nueve tradiciones diferentes firmaban una declaración en la que pedían acciones concretas para reducir las emisiones de gas carbónico. La conferencia interreligiosa fue coauspiciada por el Consejo Mundial de Iglesias —que incluye a 245 denominaciones que representan a 560 millones de cristianos en todo el mundo— y Religión y Paz, una coalición interreligiosa con miembros en más de 70 países. Los signatarios provenían de 21 países en seis continentes.La manifestación se concentró particularmente en resaltar la intersección entre las necesidades de las personas y el cambio climático, teniendo en cuenta vivienda, empleo y educación, dijo Elizabeth Yeampierre, directora ejecutiva de Uprose, que ayudó a dirigir la respuesta comunitaria al huracán Sandy después que azotó a Nueva York en octubre de 2012.“Creo que existe un temor a trabajar con personas de diferentes comunidades”, dijo Yeampierre.“Independientemente de cuál sea su campo, su pasión, todo el mundo está afectado por el cambio climático”, añadió, reconociendo que las personas desfavorecidas y el 1 por ciento que se encuentra en el ápice [de la pirámide social] están actuando al respecto y lo están haciendo públicamente.Todos los cambios importantes y profundos afectan al dinero y a las corporaciones de hidrocarburos que extraen de eso enormes ganancias, dijo Stanely Sturgill, un minero jubilado que trabajó en una mina subterránea de carbón en Kentucky.“Pero si no hacemos algo, no podremos respirar ni tener agua. Estamos luchando por el gas y el petróleo, pero pronto estaremos luchando por el agua. Una vez que pierdes el agua, no se hable más”.La familia Rockefeller, herederos de la fortuna de la Standard Oil Co., liquidará sus inversiones de su fundación en combustibles fósiles para ponerlas en fuentes de energía renovables, según un anuncio dado a conocer al tiempo de la Movilización de los Pueblos del Mundo y la Cumbre sobre el Clima en la ONU.Robinson, que desfiló con sus hermanos episcopales y con activistas interreligiosos, dijo que la Diócesis de Massachusetts Occidental decidió a principios de septiembre pasar alrededor del 20 por ciento de sus $60 millones de inversiones de combustibles fósiles a energía renovable.“Votamos después de debate un largo y arduo. Eso refleja el compromiso del obispo”, afirmó Robinson.Él vino a participar en la manifestación en el autobús “Episcopales en un Viaje de Esperanza” con más de 55 personas de las diócesis de Nueva Inglaterra que componen la I Provincia de la Iglesia Episcopal. Organizada por la Rda. Stephanie Johnson, del ministerio de mayordomía medioambiental de la provincia, el autobús recogió a estudiantes de la Escuela de Teología de Berkeley en Yale.“Creo que esta manifestación puede sentar una pauta”, dijo Johnson. “He estado trabajando en el campo del medio ambiente por más de 30 años, y nunca había visto nada como esto”.Marchando cerca de Robinson y de Johnson, Anne Rowthorn, miembro de la iglesia episcopal de Santa Ana [St. Ann’s] en Old Lyme, Connecticut, hacía un gesto de asentimiento con la cabeza.“El tema más perentorio en defensa de la vida es la vida de nuestro planeta”, dijo Rowthorn. “Es el primer problema de nuestro época.“Tenemos que salir a la calle para hacerle saber a nuestros líderes que nos han decepcionado. Este es un mensaje para esos líderes que se reúnen esta semana”.— Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

No family should have to go through what these two families have had to endure.

The imposition ofthis particularly harsh sentence by the Dazhou Intermediate People’s Courtin southwestern Sichuan province coincided with the arrival of PrimeMinister Wen Jiabao on a visit to Canada. Frank Lu of the Hong Kong-basedInformation Centre for Human Rights and Democracy said Li intended toappeal.______________________________________________________Reporters Without Borders called today for immediate release of cyber-dissident Li Zhi, who was charged on 3 September with “plotting against the state” for having contact with foreign-based dissidents through the Internet. He faces a 15-year prison sentence if convicted.It demanded that all charges be dropped against the 32-year-old civil servant and said they violated both the Chinese constitution and the country’s international human rights commitments. It said he was being targeted as part of a broader government crackdown that showed once more the complete official intolerance of online freedom of expression. Government surveillance of e-mail messages and discussion forums to track down regime dissidents was unacceptable, it added. Li Zhi was arrested by state security police on 8 August at his home in Dazhou, in the southwestern province of Sichuan. The US-based organisation Human Rights in China said he had criticised the government in online forums and was thus regarded as being in touch with foreign-based opponents. Police seized his computer but provincial officials refused to say anything about the offending material.The Internet has become a major target of the regime’s repression since three harsh laws governing it were adopted in 2000. Thirty cyber-dissidents are in prison throughout the country for expressing their opinions online.

Abuse of power condemned as publications censored and journalists spied on


first_img NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Reports Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state MexicoAmericas RSF_en January 25, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Abuse of power condemned as publications censored and journalists spied on News Help by sharing this information News Organisation MexicoAmericas center_img Follow the news on Mexico to go further May 5, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has condemned harassment of the local press in Mexico after publications were censored and journalists spied on in the second half of January in Sonora state in the north-west, Guanajuato, in the centre and Puebla in the south.The worldwide press freedom organisation noted that the abuse of power was the work of local authorities already hand in glove with the justice system over press cases.“Aides to Sonora state governor, Eduardo Bours, were recently suspected of involvement in the disappearance of a journalist in 2005 (see release of 23 January 2007). The governor of Puebla State, Mario Marín, is no stranger to the case of the unfair arrest of freelance journalist Lydia Cacho, also in 2005. These new cases confirm the complete contempt which some local leaders have for the press,” said Reporters Without Borders.“In the absence of any reaction from the federal government which promised to guarantee freedom of expression, these violations provide further support for impunity,” it added.Police in Hermosillo, Sonora State on 18 January 2007 halted a distribution truck for the twice-monthly Contralínea, and seized 2,500 copies from inside the vehicle. Police officers who claimed the truck was stolen pretended to seize two packets of cocaine in order to arrest distribution manager Mauricio Capdevielle and the driver. The two men were released on 21 January.The magazine’s editor Alvaro Cepeda Neri, told Reporters Without Borders that during the arrest the police officers made threats against Capdevielle, the magazine’s publisher Miguel Badillo and himself, adding that Bours was personally responsible for this confrontation. The magazine carried an article about the plundering of land belonging to Yaquis Indians in which the governor was implicated. The case has been referred to the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) and the special federal prosecutor’s office for journalists.Journalist on the daily Correo à Celaya, in Guanajuato state, Pedro Moreno has told Reporters Without Borders that René Mondragón Barragan, personal secretary to the mayor, Gerardo Hernández Gutiérrez, was collecting data on local reporters. Sources in the National Action Party (PAN) of which the president, Felipe Calderón and the mayor of Celaya are members, told the journalist that the files contained information about their private lives (family, homes, sexual orientation) and their likely sources of information. A journalist was reportedly paid 80,000 pesos (about 5,500 euros) to provide the information. Freelance photographer Luis García confirmed that he had seen his own file, which referred to his personal relationship with a colleague. On 15 January, a journalist with the daily AM de Celaya was expelled from a press conference on the orders of the mayor, who accused him of being “negative” towards the municipality. Two days later, journalists on the daily Correo and on Radio Corporativo Celaya were prevented from entering public buildings by the head of the municipal police, Prisciliano Mandujano. All these cases were referred to the human rights prosecutor on 17 January.On the same day, Martha Laris, head of the science and communications department of the Americas University in Cholula, Puebla state, had the editorial team on the university weekly La Catarina thrown out of its offices and its equipment and files confiscated. In October the previous year, the weekly had criticised collusion between the university rector and the state governor, Mario Marín, of whom they published cartoons. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies News Receive email alerts May 13, 2021 Find out more April 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Also any medical findings are made available to the participants and that could mean as much as $4,500 in free testing.”All participants receive an examination by a physician, as well as dietary interview and body measurements that include height and weight. Some will be eligible for a hearing test, a scan to evaluate body fat and a breathing test, as well as a blood pressure test. The various tests and procedures depend on the age of the participant. Published 9:34 pm Friday, March 18, 2011 By The Penny Hoarder “NHANES serves as the nation’s ‘health check-up’ going into communities to get health information throughout the country. The survey is a unique resource for health information. Without it, important knowledge about major health conditions would be lacking,” Martinello said.The information gathered by NHANES is used by public health officials, legislators and physicians to develop sound health policies, direct and design health programs and services and expand the health knowledge for the nation. In addition, NHANES data is used to create standardized growth charts used by pediatricians across the country to track children’s growth. Book Nook to reopen In the coming weeks, survey conductors will be knocking on doors all across Pike County and will continue knocking until 400 residents are selected for the survey.“The residents of the household will be questioned and some members of the household could qualify for the study and others might not,” Martinello said. “For example, if we are looking for a person 60 years or older and no one in that age range lives in the house, then nobody would qualify.”Participation in the study is voluntary and Martinello said Pike County has 22,000 households so finding 400 participants should not be a problem. Four hundred Pike County residents will be selected to participate in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which is the most comprehensive study of the health and nutritional status of the United States population. The survey got underway in Pike County on Thursday.“NHANES is a valuable tool for developing effective health policies and programs and it’s also an opportunity to gain information about one’s health,” said Nora Martinello, senior study manager Centers for Disease Control NHANES.“Each year, about 7,000 randomly-selected residents in 15 counties across the nation have the opportunity to participate in the latest National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey which is conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics.” Skip By Jaine Treadwell Email the author Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content You Might Like Boothe: New bill may cause controversy The Alabama Legislature is setting sail upon the high seas of political controversy as lawmakers consider a tough Immigration Bill…. read more The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Latest Stories Pike Countains to be selected for Health Survey Print Articlelast_img read more
