The Security Council is scheduled to hold an open debate on the protection of journalists on July 17, 2013. Reporters Without Borders worked very closely with France on the draft and adoption of resolution 1738 in 2006.“Since resolution 1738 was unanimously adopted by the Security Council condemning intentional attacks against journalists in conflict situations, the level of violence against journalists and citizen-journalists is increasing. With 89 journalists killed in connection with their work, 2012 has been the deadliest year for journalists since Reporters Without Borders began producing an annual roundup in 1995”, explains Christophe Deloire, Reporters Without Borders Executive Director. “Further steps to enhance the implementation of resolution 1738 are needed more than ever”.In repressive countries or countries at war, professional and citizen journalists are often the only sources of firsthand information about human rights violations by governments, warlords, religious extremists. By covering the plight of their fellow citizens and reporting abuses by leading officials, they expose themselves to the possibility of very violent reprisals. On the basis of its experience, Reporters Without Borders recommends that certain steps should be made in order to protect journalists.1. Establish effective monitoring for states’ respect of their obligations2. Extend member states’ obligations to non-professional “news providers”3. Extend member states’ obligations beyond armed conflict situations4. Reaffirm member states’ obligations to protect foreign exiled news providers Please find attached the note addressed to Member States.Resolution 1738 already requires states to protect journalists and combat impunity for those responsible for physical attacks against journalists. “So the problem is not a legal void but the lack of any verification of respect by member states for their obligations, highlights Christophe Deloire, that’s why we are especially asking the UN Security Council to seek the creation of a group of independent experts tasked with monitoring respect for UN Security Council Resolution 1738 by member states and presenting its findings during UNESCO general conferences. This group would also be tasked with informing, helping and advising the UN secretary general on the drafting of the section on the safety of journalists in his next reports on the protection of civilians during armed conflicts.”In most of the cases when journalists have been killed, the murderers stay unpunished. Reporters Without Borders urges again member states to investigate systematically all acts of violence or fatal incidents in which journalists, media workers and related personnel are the victims, both those that take place on their territory and those that take place abroad. An example of this is the investigation launched in France by the French prosecutor on the attack that killed the French photographer Remi Ochlik and seriously wounded the French journalist Edith Bouvier in Homs in February 2012. The American veteran journalist Marie Colvin died as well in this attack.Reporters Without Borders has been dedicated to the protection of journalists, media assistants and citizen journalists in conflict situations for more than 25 years, by providing insurances, bullet proof jackets and digital safety advises.Reporters Without Borders co-signed a letter addressed to all UN Security Council members states with FIDH – International Federation for Human Rights, Canadian Association of Journalists, Committee to Protect Journalists, Free Press Unlimited, Global Forum for Media Development, International Center for Journalists, International Media Support, International Press Institute, Internews and Rory Peck Trust.

The PKS is the first party to reject the plan since it was announced on Monday by House secretary-general Indra Iskandar. As many as 2,000 people are due to be tested on Thursday or Friday at the House’s housing complexes in Kalibata and Ulujami in Jakarta.The plan has also been widely criticized by the public as there are still many sick people across the country struggling to get tested. Thousands of people have signed online petitions on Change.org, calling for the plan to be canceled.”We recommend the House cancel a rapid test for lawmakers and their families this week. We are against the plan because there are many citizens and medical officials that have a more urgent need to be tested,” PKS spokesperson Pipin Sofian said in a written statement on Monday.Read also: West Java to conduct COVID-19 rapid tests at three soccer stadiums Three parties outside the government coalition, the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), the National Mandate Party (PAN) and the Democratic Party are opposing the plan for members of the House of Representatives and their families to be prioritized for COVID-19 tests.The three have demanded the House cancel the plan, saying that the free tests that are funded by donations from House leaders and members, should be given to citizens who cannot afford them and medical workers who are working every day in hospitals. “It is better to show our empathy toward them. Give priority to those in need,” Pipin added.Dems faction chairman at the House Edhie “Ibas” Baskoro Yudhoyono said on Tuesday that lawmakers should show empathy and humanity toward people infected with the coronavirus and who were struggling to be tested.”Put people first,” Ibas said in a written statement on Tuesday.PAN lawmaker Zainuddin Maliki voiced the same concern as Ibas, saying that amid this situation, all politicians must be wise in setting priorities, and lawmakers should not put themselves first.”I was surprised to hear of the plan. How come lawmakers and their families come first? When it is clear that many medical workers and people are vulnerable to being infected. They are more important,” Zainuddin said.Read also: With low test rates, COVID-19 spreads in shadowsHe said it would be best for the House to cancel the plan, saying there must be many lawmakers who also disagreed with it.”I’m sure they are feeling bad. This is the House secretariat policy, not ours,” he said, adding that the lawmakers should focus on handling the coronavirus outbreak.”If you want to do a test, please do it individually. Not collectively.”Topics :
Facebook11Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Thurston County Solid WasteThe waste reduction team at Thurston County Solid Waste is gathering your input on waste habits and perception.Thurston County Solid Waste wants to hear from the community on two very important topics.The first topic is the issue of wasted food. As a nation, we waste 40% of all food produced. This has significant financial, environmental and social impacts – there is no good side. The County is working on reducing this waste through three projects, with more planned. Solid Waste has been assisting local schools with reducing lunchroom waste for several years, even providing free milk machines and durable cups.A very successful grant project with Thurston County Food Bank provided needed infrastructure to enable the organization to increase donations of prepared food from caterers, stores, schools, and restaurants. Earlier this year, Solid Waste launched a residential awareness campaign aimed at helping residents. “The average American throws out 25% of the food they buy,” according to Terri Thomas, with Thurston Solid Waste. “However, most people don’t realize it because it happens here and there, bit by bit.” In order to fine tune and expand their efforts, the waste reduction team wants information on waste habits and perception. They have developed a quick online survey that can be found at www.WasteLessFood.com.While you are at the website, you can learn about an exciting radio contest, and of course, how to reduce the food you waste. Since a family of four throws out about $1600 a year in wasted food, it’s worth the time to take a look.Thurston County Solid Waste wants your input on the plastic bag ban.The second topic focuses on the bag ordinances that took effect July 1 in the cities of Tumwater, Olympia and Lacey, and the unincorporated areas of Thurston County. “Now that the community has adjusted a bit, it’s important that we check in with customers and retailers to get a good picture of how it’s working after four months,” said Thomas. The new law prohibits most retailers from providing single-use plastic carryout bags. It also requires them to charge a minimum of five cents for large paper bags, which the stores keep. The fee helps offset the higher cost of paper bags and acts as an incentive for customers to bring reusable bags. Customers using EBT and other assistance programs are exempt from the charge.The two online plastic bag surveys—one for retailers and one for customers—are available at www.ThurstonSolidWaste.org/plastics. Retailers can also download signs at the “Resources for Retailers” link on the site, and post in their stores to encourage customers to take the survey. To be notified when the status report on the plastic bag ordinances is released, the community can sign up for the online newsletter while at the site.For more information about waste reduction programs, or these surveys, contact Terri Thomas at [email protected] or (360) 867-2279.
