Madagascar : Sabotage silences TV channel that criticized coronavirus measures

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Madagascar’s authorities to shed all possible light on an act of sabotage that has silenced an opposition TV channel and to guarantee journalistic freedom, which is more essential than ever during the global health crisis resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Madagascar is ranked 54th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. This sabotage is all the more disturbing for having come shortly after Real TV and two other opposition media outlets, Radio AZ and Radio Soleil, received a formal warning from the ministry of communication and culture about their coronavirus coverage, including their failure to provide live retransmission of the state media’s news bulletins about the epidemic.The warning also referred to the interview originally broadcast on 25 March in which Ravalomanana said the government closed Madagascar’s borders too late and could not handle the crisis on its own. The ministry said the interview constituted incitement to hatred of the authorities and civil disobedience. Reports RSF urges Madagascar to let journalists cover Covid-19 freely News The coronavirus epidemic is such a fraught issue that particularly rancorous social media attacks on the government can result in imprisonment. The judicial authorities are refusing to release Arphine Rahelisoa, the editor of the Valisoa newspaper, who has been held since 4 April after she referred to the president as a murderer on Facebook because of his handling of the crisis. Real TV journalists talk about the act of sabotage on the station’s premises. Facebook video screenshot. Follow the news on Madagascar Although Madagascar’s authorities have so far reported only 108 Covid-19 cases and no deaths, the requirements imposed on the media are among the radical in Africa, with radio and TV stations subject to penalties if they fail to broadcast official bulletins about the coronavirus epidemic, and banned from broadcasting phone-in programmes. But there are no other restrictions on the information they broadcast, the communication ministry says. Organisation Help by sharing this information Real TV has been off the air for the past week, ever since it was about to rebroadcast an interview with former President Marc Ravalomanana – a long-standing rival of the current president, Andry Rajoelina – in which Ravalomanana criticized the government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis. Just as the TV channel was about to retransmit the interview, unidentified persons damaged its transmitter and antenna on the night of 6 April despite the presence of soldiers who are “supposed to guarantee the security of this strategic location,” Real TV’s director said in a statement. “The fight against the coronavirus must not be used as a pretext for increased control of the news media and sanctions against media outlets that dare to carry criticism of the way the health crisis is being handled,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The sabotaging of a TV channel’s transmission installations that soldiers were supposed to be guarding must be the subject of an impartial investigation that identifies those responsible. It is unacceptable that, in addition to being harassed, a media outlet can be physically attacked with complete impunity.” Receive email alerts to go further September 20, 2019 Find out more April 16, 2020 Madagascar : Sabotage silences TV channel that criticized coronavirus measures AfricaMadagascar Media independence Freedom of expression RSF_en November 27, 2020 Find out more News April 30, 2021 Find out more Newspapers that never arrive – obstructing print media distribution AfricaMadagascar Media independence Freedom of expression last_img read more


Southside Community Center unveils new mural at Juneteenth

first_imgITHACA, N.Y. – Amidst the Juneteenth Festival activities celebrating the abolition of slavery at Southside Community Center this weekend, one particular collaborative project was unveiled during the festival on Saturday afternoon.A mural decorating the front of the community center was revealed to the public, representing five members of the community center. The mural, which a group from Southside began nearly a year ago in July, is a celebration of ‘black girl alchemists’ – a term conceived by Dr. Nia Nunn, president of the Southside board and Nydia Boyd, Southside’s former executive director.“The concept of black girl magic is to celebrate our beauty, power and resilience,” Nunn said. Black girl alchemists, similarly, demand space for visibility through their artwork, she said.  “We talk about self-love and collective pride being absolutely revolutionary – this work recognizes that when the community prioritizes the voices of black girls and black women, everybody benefits,” Nunn said.Related: Southside Community Center celebrates 85 years of empowering black girlsRelated: Mama Scott’s abolitionist teaching lives on at Juneteenth Festival Alyvia Covert Alyvia is a Crime Reporter with The Ithaca Voice. She graduated from Ithaca College with a degree in Journalism and Photography. More by Alyvia Covert Tagged: ithaca, juneteenth, mural, southside community center Nunn said she has worked with many of the girls involved in the project since childhood. With a grant from the NoVo Foundation, money was allocated to enhance artistic work with young black girls, Nunn said. When the idea of the mural came up, Nunn said a group of about 12 girls ranging from college students to girls still in middle school studied each of their faces in the mirror for about 15 minutes. “We spent some time with our features and our skin, our complexion and our facial structures,” Nunn said.After conceptualizing the ideas for the mural, local artist Annemarie Zwack stepped in to help with the drawing and sculpting part of building the mural.Made primarily from clay, the mural is scattered with bits of glass and other colorful fragments pieced together to create an elaborate portrait of five girls.“I’m so honored to get to be a part of it because it was really an intimate space,” Zwack said. “We talked about the things that came up following the mirror exercise, how we felt about our faces, our bodies and all these different aspects – that was the kickoff of the self-portrait idea.”Nunn said not only was the mural a way to encourage artistic work at the community center but also to help members of the community express themselves more deeply.“It’s a way for us to define ourselves in a major major way and encourage other people to help see the way we define ourselves,” she said.See more photos from the festival below.

Press release: Rent boost for millions of claimants moving onto Universal Credit

first_img Universal Credit claimants will be able to have their temporary accommodation costs met by Housing Benefit – this will enable local authorities to recoup more money they spend on temporary accommodation directly from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), which will prevent losses to them of more than £70 million in 2018 to 2019 extended partnership working with Citizen’s Advice, to provide more face to face support to Universal Credit claimants making it possible for people to apply for advances online from spring 2018, making it even easier for a claimant to access an advance if they need it England and Wales (local media enquiries) 029 20 586 then 097 or 098 or 099 Caxton HouseTothill StreetLondonSW1H 9NA Press Office Other measures that will come in soon include: Scotland (local media enquiries) 0131 310 1122 Universal Credit has been specifically designed to be simpler and provide better personalised employment support. It ensures all benefits get paid in one monthly payment, so you won’t be getting separate amounts from different agencies for housing or tax credits. However, we understand that moving onto Universal Credit can be a big change for those used to the previous benefits system – especially the monthly payment, designed to reflect the world of work. So this week, extra rent support is being made available to allow people to adjust from fortnightly Housing Benefit payments to monthly Universal Credit ones. Universal Credit removes the barriers which prevented people from taking up work in the past, most notably the 16 hour cut off rule and the prohibitive tax rates should someone start work. Instead, Universal Credit ensures it pays to take on extra hours of work, and provides additional employment support to not only help get you into a job but also progress up the career ladder. London Press Office (national media and London area enquiries only – not questions about personal claims) 020 3267 5144 New Universal Credit claimants already getting support with their housing costs will continue to receive Housing Benefit for 2 weeks after their claim ends, to help them transition onto Universal Credit.This non-recoverable extra support is worth an average £233 and is set to help around 2.3 million people when they move onto Universal Credit.Work and Pensions Secretary of State Esther McVey said: Contact Press Office Out-of-hours (journalists only) 07623 928 975 Follow DWP on: This extra help with housing costs, worth £550 million, is part of a wider £1.5 billion package of improvements for people when they first move onto Universal Credit. This includes: extending the repayment of advances from 6 to 12 months, and allowing people to receive 100% of their payment upfront from January 2018 from February 2018, abolishing the 7 waiting day period to reduce the wait for payment so no one has to wait 6 weeks for their first Universal Credit payment Twitter – www.twitter.com/dwppressoffice Facebook – www.facebook.com/dwp LinkedIn – www.linkedin.com/company/dwp YouTube – www.youtube.com/dwplast_img read more
