Photo: Milos Tosic[Anglican Journal] In an historic vote, General Synod decided almost unanimously July 12 to approve changes to Canon XXII that enable a self-determining indigenous church within the Anglican Church of Canada, and to bestow the title of archbishop upon National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald, a position which now ranks among the metropolitans.The vote was the culmination of a morning of presentations by the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples and the Vision Keepers, the council of Indigenous elders and youth established at General Synod in 2016 to monitor how the church would honor its commitment to adopt the framework of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.Read the full article here.

The money will be used to discover exactly how services can help children build resilience to their parents’ illnesses. According to the Foundation, 60% of women with a serious mental illness have children under the age of 16. These children are at a much higher risk of developing a mental health problem than others but there are very few centres in the UK dedicated to their needs.

Why Indiana Agriculture Needs a Farm Bill Now Op-Ed by:Julia A. Wickard Phil LehmkuhlerState Executive Director State DirectorIndiana Farm Service Agency Indiana Rural DevelopmentJulia WickardThis fall, Congress has an important opportunity to create jobs and grow the economy by passing a long-term, comprehensive Food, Farm and Jobs Bill. The Farm Bill impacts every American, every day by providing a wide range of programs that strengthen our nation. The Farm Bill is crucial to maintaining a strong agriculture sector and an abundant food supply that benefits all Americans. Over the past two years, producers have faced a multitude of disasters – from drought, to flooding, to blizzards. These events demonstrate how important the safety net is to keeping producers going strong. Under the 2008 Farm Bill, the Farm Service Agency was able to provide $153.9 million in disaster assistance in Indiana using Farm Bill programs. SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Why Indiana Agriculture Needs a Farm Bill Now By Gary Truitt – Nov 27, 2013 Previous articleGive Thanks and Support Farmland ProtectionNext articleBeck’s Why I Farm Becoming National Movement Gary Truitt A new Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would provide a strong crop insurance program, reauthorize the now-expired disaster assistance programs, and provide retroactive assistance for livestock producers. By reforming the safety net to eliminate the direct payment program – which pays producers whether or not they are in need of assistance – the Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would also save billions of dollars in the next decade. It would enable USDA to continue our work with more than 500,000 producers and landowners to conserve the soil and water resources.In addition, it would allow USDA to continue export promotion efforts that have led to the best five-year period in agricultural trade in American history, and provide FSA with the tools to extend additional farm credit in Indiana.The Farm Bill is also a job creation bill that would empower USDA to partner with rural communities to grow, expand and support new businesses.A new Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would help Main Street businesses grow and hire more employees, strengthen infrastructure in our small towns and provide new opportunities in bio-based product manufacturing and renewable energy. For example, in Indiana, USDA Rural Development has provided funding for 354 projects since 2009 to help farmers and rural businesses save energy through the Rural Energy for America Program. This and many other efforts could continue with a new Farm Bill.A new Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would make important investments in nutrition programs that provide critical assistance to vulnerable Americans, including children, seniors, people with disabilities who are unable to work, and returning veterans. It would undertake new strategies to improve agricultural research, and it would ensure a safe food supply.All of these efforts strengthen our nation. A new Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would continue the job growth we’ve seen in recent years and help grow the rural economy.This is a prime opportunity to give America’s farmers the certainty they need about the next five years of U.S. farm policy, while investing in the rural communities that stand at the heart of our values. The Farm Bill has stood as a model of bipartisan consensus for decades and it is high time that both Democrats and Republicans come to a compromise on this new Farm Bill. It is our hope that Senate and House conferees will reach a consensus quickly and move a Farm Bill forward as soon as possible. Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter read more
Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Monsanto Ordered to Pay $289 Million in Roundup Cancer Trial Monsanto Ordered to Pay $289 Million in Roundup Cancer Trial Previous articleFamily farms receive Hoosier Homestead AwardNext articleFFA Pavilion at Fair Mixes Fun and Agriculture Education Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 12, 2018 According to Reuters, A California jury on Friday found Monsanto liable in a lawsuit filed by a man who alleged the company’s glyphosate-based weed-killers, including Roundup, caused his cancer and ordered the company to pay $289 million in damages. The case of school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson was the first lawsuit to go to trial alleging glyphosate causes cancer. Monsanto, a unit of Bayer AG following a $62.5 billion acquisition by the German conglomerate, faces more than 5,000 similar lawsuits across the United States.The jury at San Francisco’s Superior Court of California awarded $39 million in compensatory and $250 million in punitive damages.Monsanto denies that glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide, causes cancer and says decades of scientific studies have shown the chemical to be safe for human use. In a statement, Monsanto said it would appeal the verdict. “Today’s decision does not change the fact that more than 800 scientific studies and reviews…support the fact that glyphosate does not cause cancer, and did not cause Mr. Johnson’s cancer,” the company said.Source: Reuters Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE read more
RSF urges Madagascar to let journalists cover Covid-19 freely Follow the news on Madagascar News Organisation MadagascarAfrica RSF_en Reports Madagascar : Sabotage silences TV channel that criticized coronavirus measures April 30, 2021 Find out more July 12, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “Closures, ransacking and disinformation – media at heart of crisis” Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders is today publishing a report on the role of the media in Madagascar’s ongoing political crisis. Its release comes just days after the 50th anniversary of the independence of Madagascar, which is not one of the former French colonies to be invited to this year’s Bastille Day celebrations on 14 July in Paris.Entitled “Closures, ransacking and disinformation – media at the heart of the crisis,” the report looks at the attacks and arrests to which journalists and media have been subjected since December 2008, the characteristics of the country’s media (including the polarisation, harassment and self-censorship) and the way the media are sometimes used as sources of propaganda and disinformation.The report also suggests ways for the transitional authorities to try to create a more healthy and positive environment for journalists in Madagascar, which fell 40 positions in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index as a result of the many events affecting the media.The report is based on a fact-finding trip to Madagascar which Reporters Without Borders made from 15 to 20 March, during which it visited most of the news media in the capital, Antananarivo, and in Antsirabe (170 km south of the capital).Reporters Without Borders also met with then communication minister Nathalie Rabe, special presidential adviser for policy and communication Rolly Mercia, coordinator for the updating of the communication law Tsilavina Ralaindimby, the Madagascar Journalists Collective, members of the United Nations Development Programme, and several Antananarivo-based diplomats.In its conclusions, the report calls on the authorities to adopt a new communication law during the current transition, to support the principle of independent media regulation and to guarantee the protection of journalists against attacks and prison sentences. Reporters Without Borders also urges mediator Joachim Chissano to press each of the main movements involved in the crisis to give firm undertakings to respect press freedom; urges France to channel more of its assistance to the media; and urges Madagascar’s journalists to respect the ethics of the profession and to abstain from propaganda, partisan positions and calls for violence.

News Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says to go further April 28, 2021 Find out more March 6, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Guantanamo authorities punish Al-Jazeera cameraman for going on hunger strike Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today condemned the mistreatment of Sudanese cameraman Sami Al-Haj of the pan-Arab TV station Al-Jazeera by the US authorities at the Guantanamo Bay detention centre after he began a hunger strike on 7 January on completing his fifth year in US custody without trial.“Al-Haj has been held by the Americans for five years without being charged, in disgraceful conditions and in violation of all international conventions on the treatment of prisoners,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Legitimately but in vain, he tried to assert his rights to the military authorities. While we could not encourage him to pursue a hunger strike, we strongly condemn the fact that he was fed by force.”Reiterating its call for Al-Haj’s release, Reporters Without Borders added: “We hope that the US supreme court, which is again looking at the issue of the Guantanamo detainees, will once more rule that they should be accorded constitutional guarantees.”Al-Haj was handed over to the US army by Pakistani security forces on 7 January 2002, two weeks after he was arrested at the Afghan border, and was transferred to Guantanamo Bay on 13 June 2002 (see our previous releases). On 7 January of this year, the fifth anniversary of his transfer to US custody, he began a hunger strike with the following five demands to the military authorities:respect for the right of detainees to practice their religion;application of the Geneva Conventions on prisoners to the Guantanamo detainees;the end of solitary confinement for certain detainees;a full and impartial investigation into the deaths of three detainees on 20 June 2006, with the findings to be made public;his release, or failing that, his appearance before a US civilian court.The camp administration never responded to these requests. Instead the military began confiscating his personal effects – mattress, prayer mat, water bottle, toilet bag, glasses, knee prosthesis, correspondence and pen – continuing the confiscations in a manner “proportional” to the number of meals he refused, Al-Haj told his lawyer, Clive Stafford-Smith, when he recently visited the centre.Al-Haj, who has lost about 10 kilos in weight, was transferred to hospital several times between 25 and 30 January on the grounds that he was “ready to die” and he was fed by force, via a tube into his stomach, before being returned to his cell, Stafford-Smith said.Regarded as “enemy combatants,” the Guantanamo detainees are not allowed to appeal to civilian courts until they have been tried by military tribunals under a law passed by the US congress on 17 October, which also permits the use of torture.Regarding these provisions as unconstitutional, lawyers acting for two of the detainees appealed last month to the supreme court, which has already ruled twice that the constitution should apply to the Guantanamo detainees. The US government argues that the constitution does not apply to anyone held outside US territory. The Guantanamo Bay enclave is nonetheless in practice part of the territory of the United States. United StatesAmericas Reporters Without Borders condemns the punishments which the military authorities at Guantanamo Bay imposed on Sudanese cameraman Sami Al-Haj of Al-Jazeera after he went on hunger strike on 7 January. Al-Haj has been held at Guantanamo for nearly five years.

A day after the harsh crackdown on a demonstration marking Martyrs’ Day 0n 9April, Reporters Without Borders wrote to the Tunisian authorities to express itsindignation.President Moncef Marzouki Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali Interior Minister Ali Laarayedh Constituent Assembly President Mustafa Ben Jafar Members of the Constituent Assembly Tunis, 10 April 2012Reporters Without Borders, an organization that campaigns for freedom of newsand information, was shocked to witness the violent crackdown by the securityforces against a gathering in central Tunis on 9 April to commemorate Martyrs’Day.On that disastrous day, the organization recorded assaults on 16 journalists,including two foreign reporters. Reporters Without Borders has not witnessedviolence of such magnitude since the overthrow of President Zine el-Abidine BenAli in January last year.Since 28 March, demonstrations have been banned on Habib Bourguiba Avenue,the hub of the protests and a symbol of the Tunisian revolution. Hundreds ofpeople ignored the ban and responded to a call for a demonstration by variouscivil society organizations.Police units deployed in central Tunis deliberately set upon the demonstratorsand journalists covering the event. Officers did their utmost to prevent thosepresent from recording the abuses by taking photos or video footage.Journalists’ equipment was smashed, memory cards were confiscated andimages deleted, and media workers and citizen journalists beaten and arbitrarilyarrested.The use of tear gas, the display of force by police in plain clothes, the pursuit offleeing protesters and a multitude of abuses are a reminder that police violenceremains rife and the old responses acquired by the security forces during the BenAli era have resurfaced in an atmosphere of total impunity.Reporters Without Borders insists on the immediate creation of an independentinquiry commission to shed light on the disturbances, to establish whether thepolice were given a free hand to use violence and to impose punishments foroffences committed by the police.When such attacks were carried out previously, internal investigations werepromised several times by the new leadership but their outcome has not beenmade public and no one has questioned whether the authorities were sincere intheir wish to solve the problem of police violence.Violent demonstrations broke out in several towns and cities in protest. At thesame time, members of the National Constituent Assembly decided to hold agathering today on Habib Bourguiba Avenue. This demonstration did not giverise to any clashes, proof that the police can manage spontaneous protestspeacefully.In view of these worrying events, Reporters Without Borders warns theauthorities against the dangers of yet more words with no real desire for change.The violence that was witnessed on 9 April has no place in a democraticstate and Reporters Without Borders believes that, unless control is quicklyreasserted, Tunisia could find itself swept up in escalating violence.To prevent this, the political leadership must reaffirm its commitment to basicfreedoms.The stakes are high and the excesses recorded on 9 April raise many questions,such as what is the goal of such systematic repression. Reporters WithoutBorders calls on the interior ministry, some of whose officials were behind theviolence, to take urgent steps to ensure a halt to such attacks.Proceedings should be launched under article 14 of the new press law whichprohibits “the humiliation or harm of a journalist, verbally or by gesture, action orthreat”.Programs must be created to educate members of the security forces injournalists’ work and rights and beyond, and a wide-ranging reform of thesecurity apparatus must be undertaken.The organization also appeals to the authorities to send a strong signal to allthose who flout freedom of expression and the freedom of journalists to informthe public with complete independence.Do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information.Please accept our most earnest democratic wishes. to go further RSF_en TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa Eleven organizations from civil society create the Forum on Information & Democracy, a structural response to information disorder Follow the news on Tunisia Related documents Open letter from Reporters Without Borders to the Tunisian authorities – In ArabicPDF – 49.46 KB News Receive email alerts News News Help by sharing this information April 11, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter from Reporters Without Borders to the Tunisian authorities Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa News Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists December 26, 2019 Find out more November 11, 2020 Find out more Organisation November 12, 2019 Find out more read more
Cameraman Hussam Hilal Sarsam, who was kidnapped yesterday in Mosul was gunned down when he tried to escape his abductors today, four days after the fatal shooting of Laik Ibrahim, Kurdistan-TV’s bureau chief in Kirkuk. The killings of the two journalists were condemned today by Reporters Without Borders as “targeted murders aimed at intimidating a Kurdish news media in Iraq.” March 14, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists with Kurdish TV station killed four days apart IraqMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” News to go further News The killings of two journalists with Kurdistan-TV, the satellite television station of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), in the space of four days were condemned today by Reporters Without Borders as “targeted murders aimed at intimidating a Kurdish news media in Iraq.”Cameraman Hussam Hilal Sarsam, who was kidnapped yesterday in Mosul, 380 km north of Baghdad, was gunned down when he tried to escape his abductors today, four days after the fatal shooting of Laik Ibrahim, Kurdistan-TV’s bureau chief in Kirkuk, 250 km north of the capital.”We reiterate that journalists are neutral observers and that it is imperative to protect and respect their work in order to ensure complete and independent news coverage,” Reporters Without Borders said.”A total of 51 journalists and media assistants have lost their lives trying to report the news since the start of the war in Iraq in March 2003, seven of them in Mosul,” the press freedom organization added.After Sarsam, 27, was kidnapped yesterday in a busy section of Mosul, he was forced by his abductors to call one of his colleagues to arrange a meeting. Sarsam reportedly said: “Come and join me, I have something important to tell you.” The colleague immediately contacted his superiors who advised him not to go. While being moved by his kidnappers in a car this morning, Sarsam tried to take advantage of a traffic jam to escape, but they shot four times as he ran away. His body was found in the neighbourhood where he was kidnapped.Kurdistan-TV’s Mosul bureau has 14 employees, including five reporters and four cameramen. Sarsam, who joined the bureau in January 2004, covered a number of sensitive subjects including the bombings that have taken place in Mosul, in which he filmed witnesses and survivors. His colleagues described him as a “model of courage.”Reached by telephone, Mosul bureau chief Akram Slimane told Reporters Without Borders that the station was the target of these killings because it “gives the truth and nothing but the truth.” Other employees have also received threats. The Kirkuk bureau chief, Ibrahim, was shot dead as he drove to his bureau.
