The Commission is grateful for the generous hospitality extended by Bishop Irinej and the Diocese of Backa of which Novi Sad is the see city.Bishop Irinej and Bishop David of Krushevac, on behalf of Patriarch Irinej, warmly welcomed the members of the Commission to Novi Sad. The bishops offered engagement with the work of the Commission, noting in particular the spiritual dimensions of the study of theological anthropology, and sharing with members an understanding of the experience of Christians in Serbia.Continuing its focus on Christian anthropology, specifically what it means to be a human person created in the image and likeness of God, the Commission devoted significant efforts to the review of the draft of its joint theological work on the subject. Reflection on the theology of the glory of creation and the uniqueness of humanity in the created order drew the Commission into deep discussion. Further, the Commission worked at length on the specific expression of image and likeness, considering the thematic components of the subject, with particular attention to its scriptural basis. As part of the discussion of human relationships, the Commission observed that it is the teaching of all the Orthodox and Anglican churches that marriage is between a man and a woman. The draft text, which was developed through the studies of previous meetings, was enhanced at this meeting by contributions on the subjects of the human being in society; the human being as a social being; attaining personhood through community from a traditional African perspective; and repentance, transformation and holiness. The Commission agreed that a newly appointed drafting group would work with the existing draft for the next meeting, taking into account the many pertinent comments and theological considerations presented at this meeting.As in previous meetings, daily prayer strengthened and grounded the work of the Commission. Anglican members of the Commission offered morning prayers. Vespers in the Serbian Orthodox tradition took place at the nearby parish of The Dormition of the Mother of God and at the Orthodox Cathedral. Members attended an Anglican Eucharist held at the Slovakian Evangelical Church. Members also attended the Divine Liturgy at the Kovilj Monastery. Throughout all of the opportunities for prayer, the ICAOTD held up the people of Syria, praying for peace and comfort and security in that land.During the time of the meeting, the Patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church delivered a speech to the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York entitled “The Culture of Peace and Our Responsibility.” Commission members commended this presentation for its timely message and gratefully received the text of his speech.It was noted during the meeting of the Commission that this year marks the 1700th anniversary of the Edict of Milan. The anniversary of such an edict offering assurance of security and religious freedom has poignancy for our time.The work of the Commission was greatly enriched by opportunities for local engagement in our setting. During the course of the meeting, the ICAOTD was very generously welcomed at the Kovilj monastery by Bishop Andrej, head of the office of external relations of the Patriarchate of Serbia, and the Abbot Bishop Porfirije of Jegar and numerous monks, from whom the members learned about the activities of the monastery, including work with those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions. A visit to the city of Sremski Karlovci offered an opportunity to see the Orthodox Cathedral of St Nikolas and visit the Orthodox Theological Seminary of St Arsenije Sremac, where the Commission was welcomed by Bishop Vasilije of Srem, and learned about the formation of young seminarians to carry out God’s mission in this contemporary context.The Commission missed the presence of the Orthodox Co-Chairman, Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia who was unable to attend. The delegate of the Greek Patriarchate of Alexandria, Metropolitan Serafim of Zimbabwe assumed the responsibility of Acting Co-Chairman for this meeting.The work of the Commission will continue at its next meeting in September 2014, to be hosted by the Anglican Communion.Metropolitan Serafim of Zimbabwe   The Most Revd Roger HerftActing Orthodox Co-Chairman         Anglican Co-ChairmanRepresentatives of the Orthodox ChurchMetropolitan Serafim of ZimbabwePatriarchate of AlexandriaThe Revd Fr Alexander HaigPatriarchate of AntiochThe Revd Fr Valentin VasechkoPatriarchate of MoscowProfessor Dr Bogdan LubardicPatriarchate of SerbiaMetropolitan Nifon of TârgovistePatriarchate of RomaniaProtopresbyter Giorgi ZviadadzePatriarchate of GeorgiaProfessor Dr Miltiadis KonstantinouChurch of GreeceThe Revd Fr.

Bright One launches BrightWorks microvolunteering app

first_img Howard Lake | 30 June 2011 | 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. Volunteer-run third sector communications agency Bright One has created BrightWorks, a micro-volunteering app that allows charities and voluntary organistaions to get tasks completed for free online by a global volunteer communityBrightWorks is designed to enable voluntary organisations to outsource a range of tasks from a range of disciplines, such as PR, marketing, social media, design, and copywriting, all at no charge.Volunteers can use the app to locate causes that matter to them that need their skills. They should also benefit as they work collaboratively on tasks with other volunteers.The BrightWorks app will track and share data on participation rates, causes supported, volunteer hours, active volunteers, location and more, to demonstrate its social impact.Ben Matthews, Founder of Bright One, explained that the app was one way of extending the agency’s impact. He said: “We have achieved great success in the past two years, all through the passion and determination of our volunteers. But teams of volunteers can only achieve so much, and demand overwhelmingly outstrips supply when it comes to supporting the amount of charities that approach us on a daily basis for support. Bright Works will help us to scale the amount of support we can give.”The site is currently in ‘beta’ phase and the projects featured will be from Bright One’s current client portfolio. Plans for development of the platform are in place, which will see BrightWorks opened up to charities, non-profits and social enterprises across the world.Matthews added: “The idea at the heart of BrightWorks that it will be a self-organising, ‘peopled’ service, breaking down projects to ensure that many hands make light work, in a visually appealing format so that volunteers feel comfortable in working in the environment.”The app has been developed by Dharmafly, who specialise in social design for the development of web Bright One launches BrightWorks microvolunteering app  61 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Volunteering AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

No borders in workers’ struggles

first_imgThe following statement was released by Workers World Party 2016 presidential candidate Monica Moorehead and vice presidential candidate Lamont Lilly on Oct 7.We salute with full solidarity those gathered at the Encuentro en la Frontera/Encounter at the Border in Arizona, Oct. 7-10. We salute the School of the Americas Watch for its bold decision to bring the struggle here from its 25-year righteous outcry at the gates of Fort Benning, Ga., in opposition to catastrophic U.S. “interventions” in Central and Latin America.Side-by-side with you, we are fighting to end the racist persecution of migrants and refugees, and to end U.S.-led and U.S.-backed imperialist war and policies forcing people to flee their own homelands.This action, at this brutally militarized border, dramatizes the bloody connections between U.S. military aid and training of repressive security forces; forced migration of workers, particularly from Central America and Mexico; racist U.S. immigration laws and for-profit ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] prisons entombing immigrants; the monster prison-industrial complex targeting Black and Brown people; and the ongoing murderous assault of state police terror against people of color.We denounce the violently racist proposals and words of Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, who incites despicable mob thinking and vigilante action with his call for a wall to fortify the already unjustly imposed border on lands stolen by the U.S. from Mexico.The U.S. spends trillions fortifying the repression of workers and oppressed people at home and in other countries. With Plan Merida, a “security cooperation” agreement, the U.S. gave Mexico billions to supposedly “fight drugs.” The money intensively armed state police to arrest and murder protesters, including teachers and students. We say: “No to Plan Merida! Money for drug rehabilitation, not war and repression!”Furthermore, we demand justice for the families of the Ayotzinapa 43 and all those killed and disappeared by the murderous U.S.-backed Mexican government, especially the murdered and missing women of Juárez. We are pained by the continued U.S.-backed war of aggression in Colombia and stand with all those in resistance to imperialism and those fighting for peace in that beleaguered nation.We denounce Hillary Clinton, Democratic Party candidate for U.S. president, who was chief engineer of the 2009 coup against democratically elected Honduran President Manuel Zelaya when she served as Secretary of State. Clinton has blood on her hands for the ensuing loss of Honduran lives, the targeted killing of women, and the political assassinations of Garifuna Nation leaders, union members and other activists, including environmental leader Berta Cáceres and LGBTQ leader Walter Tróchez.What was Clinton’s cold-blooded answer to a question about the forced “child migrant crisis” coming out of Honduras? She called for the deportation of these children, whose families had to send them alone to the U.S. to escape killings she had set in motion. She said: “Tell them the journey is too dangerous.”For 60 million people and counting, the “dangerous journey” of forced migration is happening worldwide because of U.S.-driven neoliberal economic exploitation, imperialist wars and capitalist-driven climate change. These assaults have bludgeoned and destabilized countries in Northern Africa and the Middle East, particularly countries like Libya, Syria and Iraq, which are seeking to remain independent of U.S. control.We denounce the xenophobia and Islamophobia that has sprung up in the wake of these migrations. We are in solidarity with all migrants, and especially the Muslim community.We say: End forced migration! Reparations for all refugees from Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America/Caribbean!We say: Full rights for the undocumented! No borders in the workers’ struggle!No militarized borders! No to U.S. imperialist interventions!Black Lives Matter everywhere! Stop police terror from the U.S. to Mexico!No to Trump’s racism, no to Clinton’s war machine! Build the movement for revolutionary change! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Report of fact-finding visit – “Cúcuta, dangerous crossroads for the Colombian press”

It was here that Julio Palacios Sánchez (photo) of Radio Lema was gunned down on 11 January. A microcosm of the country’s conflicts, Cúcuta shows how dangerous it is to be a journalist in Colombia. News Reporters Without Borders today issued a report on the perils for journalists in Cúcuta, a border city in north-eastern Colombia. The report is the result of a fact-finding visit to the city conducted jointly with other organizations (including a Reporters Without Borders partner) on 9-10 February. Its publication coincides with the anniversary of the assassination of politician Jorge Eliécer Gaitán on 9 April 1948, seen as the start of Colombia’s endemic political violence.This year began tragically for the Colombian press with the murder of Julio Palacios Sánchez of Radio Lema on 11 January in Cúcuta. Located at the heart of a region on which different armed groups – guerrillas, paramilitaries and drug traffickers – have all converged, the city saw eight of the 38 cases of serious threats against the press registered in Colombia by Reporters Without Borders in 2004. Several journalists had to stop working and leave the region. Others who have decided to stay censor themselves for their protection.This is the situation that prompted the joint fact-finding visit by Reporters Without Borders (of France and Sweden), the Fundación para la Libertad de Prensa (a Colombian organization partnered with Reporters Without Borders), the Instituto Prensa y Sociedad (of Peru) and International Media Support (of Denmark). The team’s members questioned some 20 representatives of local and national media, as well as various local government, judicial and military officials.The visit not only highlighted the permanent pressure which the press must endure in this explosive microcosm of Colombia’s conflicts, it also revealed a still tenacious climate of impunity and a shocking lack of responsibility on the part of the authorities as regards the plight of the city’s journalists. The deputy mayor, for example, told the visiting team he had never heard of any attacks against the press. The police chief told the team that Julio Palacios Sánchez’s murder was a “black speck on an otherwise white handkerchief.”This irresponsibility is another danger for the Colombia news media and a real threat to press freedom in Colombia.

New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council

first_img Mongolia : RSF urges presidential candidates to voice support for press freedom June 7, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Organisation Three of the worst press freedom predators – China, Russia and Cuba – will have seats on the Human Rights Council for three years from next January as a result of elections held by the UN General Assembly on 13 October. Other countries with some of the worst World Press Freedom Index rankings – Uzbekistan (156th), Pakistan (145th) and Mexico (143rd) – are also among the 15 countries chosen to fill the newly vacant seats on the 47-seat council. Only Saudi Arabia failed to get enough votes to fill one of the Asia-Pacific region’s four empty seats.“It is disgraceful that China, Russia and Cuba are part of a council tasked with defending human rights,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The only way to avoid ridicule would be for these countries to use their presence on the HRC to make some progress, including with regard to press freedom. It is fortunate that Saudi Arabia was not elected after journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder and with 34 journalists still rotting in its prisons.”The new members include:China (ranked 177th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index), which is currently holding more than 100 journalists and bloggers in its jails, often in conditions that threaten their survival.Cuba (171st), which continues to be Latin America’s worst press freedom violator, imposing a state monopoly on the media while maintaining pressure on its few independent journalists and bloggers.Uzbekistan (156th), which has seen some progress in the situation of its media in recent years, although they are still subjected to censorship and surveillance as soon as they criticize the government.Russia (149th), which harasses all media outlets that don’t toe the official line and has brought the Internet under Kremlin control, while regions such as Crimea and Chechnya have become “black holes” from which little news or information emerges.France and the United Kingdom, ranked 34th and 35th respectively in the World Press Freedom Index, were elected to represent Europe on the council.The reelected countries include:Pakistan (145th), where the media are under the sway of the military and intelligence agencies and are subjected to cyber-censorship, and where journalists are often harassed. Four journalists were killed in connection with their work in 2019.Mexico (143rd), which continues to be the world’s most dangerous country for journalists. Caught between organized crime and corrupt politicians and officials, journalists who dare to cover sensitive subjects are harassed and threatened, or just gunned down in the street.Although UN General Assembly Resolution 60/251, which created the HRC, says that, when  electing  members  of  the  council, member  states should “take  into  account  the  contribution  of  candidates  to  the  promotion  and  protection  of  human  rights,” this week’s elections were only competitive with regard to the Asia-Pacific region, where five countries competed for four seats. In the other elections (Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Western Europe and other states), the number of seats was the same as the number of candidates. The council’s members are elected directly and individually by secret ballot by the majority of the General Assembly’s members.

Police accused of disguising journalist’s murder as suicide

first_img RSF_en March 22, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police accused of disguising journalist’s murder as suicide May 19, 2021 Find out more Organisation News News BangladeshAsia – Pacific RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about the preliminary findings of the autopsy and police investigation into the death of Jamal Uddin, a reporter for the news agency Abas and local newspaper Dainik Giri Darpan, in the southeastern district of Rangamati. The authorities are saying it was suicide, but Uddin’s colleagues insist that the circumstances suggest it was murder.”We call on the government to order the national criminal police to conduct a new investigation into this young journalist’s death,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His fellow journalists dispute the official version and this is a source of disquiet that should be dispelled as quickly as possible. If it is confirmed that he was murdered, those responsible must be identified, arrested and tried.”The results of the Rangamati hospital autopsy, concluding that Uddin probably took his own life, were not released until 18 March, 12 days after his body was found. At the same time, the local police claimed they found an audio cassette message in his pocket in which he indicated he was killing himself because his fellow journalists made fun of him. However, the police have refused to let his relatives and friends listen to the message, and they have reportedly arrested a suspect.Uddin’s relatives and colleagues rule out suicide. S. M. Shamsul Alam, the president of the Rangamati press club, said any reasonable person who had seen the body would know it was murder. The body, found stretched out at the foot of a tree with a rope around the neck, was covered with the marks of blows. Furthermore, Uddin, who was 25, had shown no signs of depression or suicidal tendencies. to go further Help by sharing this information center_img News Follow the news on Bangladesh Receive email alerts BangladeshAsia – Pacific Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists News February 26, 2021 Find out more Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detention February 22, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
