Photo by James Allan Achates Philanthropy Prize winners announced Ministry of Stories and first-time cultural philanthropists, John Gillman and Mary Winch have won this year’s Achates Philanthropy Prize Individual Philanthropy Award, while With One Voice (Streetwise Opera) and Laing O’Rourke have won the Corporate Award.John and Mary were nominated by Ministry of Stories for donating an unrestricted gift of £1,000 – their first donation to a cultural organisation – to support the charity’s mission in championing the ability of every child to be a writer, and its specific work to reach young people from East London who face barriers and/or have limited opportunity to develop a love of writing within mainstream education.The couple are regular theatre and arts attenders but viewed culture as separate to their charitable giving. The Achates Philanthropy Prize judging panel agreed that their story reflected a key issue facing arts organisations across the UK: that regular charitable donors often do not realise that most arts organisation are charities too. The judges praised Ministry of Stories for successfully articulating the charitable aims of its work, and role in society, to engage and inspire new supporters.They received a sculpture by British artist, Peter Brooke-Ball MRBS, which they will be custodians of for one year. Ministry of Stories received a £5,000 donation from the Achates Philanthropy Foundation which will be allocated towards its expanded writing clubs programme with local schools.Kirsty Telford, Deputy Director, Ministry of Stories, said: “The team is over the moon that John and Mary have won this award. We were delighted to welcome them into our family of supporters and they have already offered so many ideas and contacts that could help us raise our profile in the local area and in the City of London. “Our charity was founded on the ambition and hard graft of our community and funded through the generosity of a group of donors and funders who really understood what we were trying to achieve in those early days. Without their belief and investment in our vision, we wouldn’t have been able to grow, develop and champion the writer in every child.”With One Voice, the international arts and homelessness movement founded by Streetwise Opera, first approached Laing O’Rourke to become a sponsor of the first-ever International Arts and Homelessness Summit & Festival across Greater Manchester from 12-18 November. The construction company agreed to contribute £5,000 cash and £5,000 in-kind to the creation of a public mural, as one of the Festival’s flagship activities, as well as consultancy and project management expertise.The judges praised the long-term impact of this new partnership, which has resulted in the implementation of a new strategic approach by Laing O’Rourke to tackle the issues surrounding homelessness in the areas in which it works. Once developed, the scheme will be piloted in Greater Manchester, ahead of national rollout. Laing O’Rourke also received a sculpture by Brooke-Ball, which they will be custodians of for a year. With One Voice received a £5,000 donation from the Achates Philanthropy Foundation, which will be allocated towards the Summit & Festival legacy, including developing a Cultural Partnerships Framework in Manchester, linking arts organisations to homelessness organisations. The shortlist had been announced in September.

It is rare that something positive for the working class comes from an imperialist government’s report. So there is some surprise that the British government’s inquiry known as the Chilcot Report has established that former Prime Minister Tony Blair lied, ignored warnings and twisted arms to push his government into invading Iraq in March 2003.The report, published July 6 after seven years of painstakingly slow research and procrastination, contains 2.6 million words — about 25 times that of the average novel.George Bush and Tony Blair, war criminals.As demonstrators in London pointed out, the report means that Blair should be tried as a war criminal. Of course, it also means that former U.S. President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney and a bunch of other U.S. top politicians are even bigger war criminals. They committed the greatest war crime of all against Iraq: unleashing a war of aggression.It was the Bush-Cheney administration, using the attack of Sept. 11, 2001, as a pretext to mobilize the U.S. for war, which led the U.S.-British alliance into battle. Blair was their toady across the pond. In a memo in July 2002 he wrote to Bush, “I will be with you, whatever.”The Bush administration lied more than 900 times in the closing months of 2002 to try to justify war against Iraq. Chief liars were Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell. Without United Nations’ or even NATO’s blessing, the U.S.-British alliance finally invaded Iraq and occupied the country, destroying its infrastructure and making all its former officials and key managers outlaws. Later NATO came on board.The occupiers faced a determined Iraqi resistance movement through 2004 and 2005. To weaken the resistance, the U.S.-British occupiers exacerbated religious and ethnic differences among Iraqis. Between imperialist repression and sectarian warfare, over 1.5 million Iraqis died, and the country was in ruins, with thousands of GIs dead or maimed — all the fault of Bush-Cheney-Blair aggression.In March 2003, the majority of the U.S. ruling class went along with the attack on Iraq, and so did the establishment media, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the big cable and broadcast networks. They all chose to believe Bush’s promises of an easy and profitable victory. None of this was true.The Chilcot Report reflects the ruling class’s disappointment with the unkept promises. It will be useful only to prove to any who might still doubt it that Blair is guilty as charged, as are Bush and Cheney. In summary, Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry shows that the Iraq War, a six-year conflict for Britain, was unnecessary and disastrous, and that Blair exaggerated the threat posed by Saddam Hussein and his alleged “weapons of mass destruction.”Families of some of the 179 British military personnel killed in the war have described Blair as a “terrorist.” In the July 8 Guardian, a British newspaper, Simon Jenkins wrote, “Blair emerges as other Iraq historians have already portrayed him, as a pathetic and self-regarding figure in awe of the transatlantic power.”It is satisfying to know that the people of Britain are condemning Blair. The anti-war movement there knew of Blair’s war crimes for over a decade, but now everyone knows and no one can deny it. The exposure comes at a good time, as it implicates Blair’s allies in the right wing of the Labour Party. It opens a path for the current, more leftist Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, to attack his rightist enemies as complicit in Blair’s crimes.Whatever happens to Blair, there remains a bigger job for the anti-war movement in the U.S. That is to use the Chilcot Report in the best way possible to expose the war crimes of Bush and Cheney and put them on trial.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
RSF decries Cambodian plan for Chinese-style “Great Firewall” RSF_en CambodiaAsia – Pacific Protecting journalistsMedia independence Covid19Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment January 21, 2021 Find out more Monoroom.info, a Khmer-language news website based in France, became inaccessible in Cambodia on 31 March after it published several articles about the coronavirus situation there, and has remained inaccessible ever since. Cambodia is ranked 143rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges Cambodia’s legislators to amend a proposed state of emergency law they are due to vote on in the next few days and, in particular, to eliminate gross violations of the freedom to inform and be informed that could have serious consequences during the coronavirus crisis.

April 9, 2020 – Updated on May 6, 2020 Cambodia: Hun Sen uses Covid-19 crisis to tighten his grip According to national assembly spokesman Leng Peng Long, the proposed “Law on Governing the Country in a State of Emergency” will be submitted for a vote by tomorrow “at the latest.” Approved by the cabinet on 31 March, it is designed to enable the government to “control the situation” if the coronavirus spreads in Cambodia, Prime Minister Hun Sen says. RSF has obtained a copy of the proposed law, which would institutionalize censorship in all the media.

It is up to legislators to stop this intolerable abuse of power.” But several observers say some legislators are preparing to oppose the Cambodian strongman’s professed desire to ensure that his children succeed him. In this light, articles 5 (10) et 5 (11) could be used by Hun Sen to suppress any debate about the succession in the press and any rebellious tendencies within the party.

RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Organisation ColombiaAmericas Reporters Without Borders calls for a full investigation into the murder of the newspaper seller José Darío Arenas, shot dead two days ago as he started work in the morning in Caicedonia, a town in the western department of Valle del Cauca.“The murder of this newspaper seller is a cruel reminder that the lives of all those involved in news and information in Colombia are at risk, whether journalists, media workers or community broadcasters,” the press freedom organization said.

Once again, links to the victim’s work must be explored in this latest case.” Darío, who worked for the newspaper EXTRA del Quindío, was calling out the day’s first local news stories when he was shot repeatedly. Shortly afterwards, the newspaper received an ominous phone call saying “first one down!” according to the Press Freedom Foundation. EXTRA del Quindío had just published an article exposing management irregularities in Caicedonia prison. According to local sources, the murder was believed to be linked to the article’s publication. The high level of impunity in Colombia is exacerbated by the slowness of proceedings, which means the statute of limitations may expire. On the day Darío was killed, the investigation into the murder of radio journalist Manuel José Martínez Espinosa passed the fateful 20-year limit.

ABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The long lasting, record breaking and historic nor’easter is finally starting to move out with just some blustery conditions and snow showers for New England Wednesday.The highest snowfall total in the Northeast from this storm was 3 feet in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.In Allentown, Pennsylvania, it was the second biggest snowstorm in recorded history with a whopping 27.3 inches of snow.Elsewhere, Mount Arlington, New Jersey, received just under 3 feet of snow with 35.1 inches.New York City still stands at 17.2 inches, Philadelphia got 7.9 inches and Boston had the least snow with only 1.2 inches because of the ocean influence.Attention now turns to the next few storms moving across the country with heavy snow, gusty winds and blizzard-like conditions.There are 14 states on alert for winter weather from California to Michigan on Wednesday morning.This new storm will bring heavy snow from California to Colorado with avalanche danger for the region before tracking east into the Midwest where a blizzard warning has been issued for Iowa with a winter storm watch in effect for Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.Gusty winds, rain, icy mix and snow is forecast in Chicago on Thursday.The heaviest snow will be in Iowa, southern Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan where some areas could see more than a half a foot of snow.By Friday, the new storm will move into the Northeast but, because temperatures will be milder for the I-95 corridor, there will be rain rather than snow.Further inland, snow will fly again from Pennsylvania to upstate New York and parts of interior New England.Meanwhile, yet another storm will be moving through the Rockies right behind this one with more snow.At this moment, this second storm looks like it might not come together for the Northeast by Super Bowl Sunday.Both main models, European and American, are showing not much happening on the East Coast late this weekend but this still has time to change.What is certain is that some of the coldest air in years will move into the Midwest and then eventually the Northeast.By Sunday, wind chills in the Upper Midwest and the Great Lakes will be in the 30s, 40s and even 50s below zero.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
