Despite reassuring statements from government officials, journalists continue to be threatened and prosecuted

first_img RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders today reiterated its call for the repeal of article 301 of the criminal code punishing attacks on the Turkish identity, as the country continued to be abuzz with protests and reactions to the 19 January murder of newspaper editor Hrant Dink, whose funeral on 23 January drew 100,000 mourners.The editor of the bilingual Turkish-Armenian weekly Agos, Dink had been convicted under article 301 and was facing another prosecution under the same article at the time of his death. Foreign minister Abdullah Gül has said the article is clearly problematic and that changes need to be made. While supporting his comments, Reporters Without Borders believes the article should be completely repealed.Gül’s comment is not the first. Last November, a European Union commission that is monitoring Turkey’s progress towards joining the EU stressed that: “Article 301 and other provisions of the Turkish penal code that restrict freedom of expression need to be brought in line with the European Convention of Human Rights.” Anticipating the commission’s comments, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had already appealed to civil society to suggest how the article could be reformed.“Despite that, nothing concrete has so far been initiated and for this reason, we would like to stress today that promises are not enough,” Reporters Without Borders said today.A person who has confessed to being one of the instigators of Dink’s murder, Yasin Hayal, uttered threats against Nobel literature laureate Orhan Pamuk when he was brought before an Istanbul court last week. Ogün Samast, the 17-year-old youth who fired the shots that killed Dink, told police when first questioned that he “felt no remorse.” He said Dink had deserved to die for insulting the Turkish peopleNationalism was the driving force behind Dink’s murder and it continues to fuel threats against journalists. Agos contributors requested, and obtained, police protection after getting death threats in an e-mail message signed by the Turkish Brigades for Revenge (TIT). It was a TIT member, Semih Tufan Günalthay, who ordered the 1998 murder of Akin Birdal, Turkey’s leading human rights activist. At least six journalists and writers are currently getting police protection.A 36-year-old ex-soldier yesterday surrendered to the police after threatening to blow up a ferry in northwestern Turkey in protest against the pro-Armenian slogans chanted at Dink’s funeral. The man, who was carrying a very powerful kind of explosive known as C4, unfurled a Turkish flag over the ferry and announced that: “I did it for Turkey.” The daily newspaper Tercuman said on 26 January that those who were not proud of being Turkish should leave the country.Although the repeal of article 301 is now being widely discussed, journalists are still being prosecuted under it. They include Umur Hozatli, who is being prosecuted over two articles published last September in which he criticised a police raid on the premises of Özgür Radio and the leftist weekly Atilim and accused the police of “cooperating with certain judges to illegally imprison people regarded as separatists or terrorists.”Last November, Reporters Without Borders noted that at least 65 people, including many journalists and writers, had been prosecuted under article 301 since its adoption as part of the new criminal code in June 2005.Six people have so far been charged in connection with Dink’s murder. Samast is charged with shooting Dink. Hayal is accused of being one of the instigators. Ahmet Iskender, Ersin Yolcu, Zeynel Abidin Yavuz and Erhan Tucel, are also charged with inciting the murder. Tucel is a student who supports a national group in Trabzon, Samast’s home town.Dink was killed by several shots fired at him outside the Istanbul offices of Agos, for which he wrote columns as well as being the editor. A well-known journalist and one who was respected by his colleagues, Dink had been the target of several prosecutions over his views on the massacre of Armenians under the Ottoman empire. In 2005, he received six-month suspended sentence for “humiliating Turkish identity.” He was prosecuted again in September 2006 over an interview he gave to Reuters in which he referred to the massacres in Anatolia during the First World War as “genocide.” He had been facing a possible three-year prison sentence.

West Indies Women begin head coach search

first_img(CMC) – CRICKET West Indies (CWI) has begun its search for a permanent head coach to oversee the embattled senior women side and halt a troubling run of results.Former Test player Gus Logie was named interim coach last October, replacing Barbadian Henderson Springer but suffered series losses to India in both white-ball formats last November, before watching the side tumble out of last February’s T20 World Cup at the preliminary stage.CWI director of cricket, Jimmy Adams, said yesterday the new head coach would be expected to improve results.“Following the recently concluded Women’s T20 World Cup, we have now begun the recruitment process for finding a permanent women’s team head coach,” Adams said.“The successful candidate will be expected to drive our women’s programme forward and improve our results across both formats.“We are grateful for the efforts of interim head coach, Gus Logie, who has led the squad during this transition period and will continue in his interim role until the process has concluded.”According to CWI, the new head coach would be tasked with ensuring consistent performances in both formats and achieving “superior match results and top placement in all ICC competitions”.Further, the successful candidate will be expected to employ “well-structured and progressive coaching programmes” along with “implementing tactical initiatives” in order to get “maximum output” from the players.Applicants will require an accredited Level Three coaching certification and must be West Indian, in keeping with CWI’s recent ‘West Indies First’ policy.West Indies Women have struggled badly ever since winning the T20 World Cup in India four years ago, winning just four of 10 T20 series. Last year they managed only five wins in 17 matches.They reached the semi-finals of the 2018 T20 World Cup staged in the Caribbean before bowing out.Their One-Day International form has also waned considerably. They won just two of seven matches at the 2017 World Cup in England to miss out on the semi-finals and since then have won only three of 17 outings.In the vital Women’s Championship, a qualifier for next year’s World Cup in New Zealand, West Indies ended seventh of eight teams to miss out on an automatic spot at the showpiece.last_img read more

SA’s Social Entrepreneur 2006

first_img1 June 2006Sunette Pienaar, founder of Heartbeat, has been named South Africa’s “Social Entrepreneur 2006” by the Schwab Foundation.The award was made at the opening of the World Economic Forum’s Forum on Africa in Cape Town on Wednesday, and handed over by First Lady Zanele Mbeki.The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship is running a search for “The Social Entrepreneur of the Year” in 30 countries around the world. In South Africa the search is in partnership with Deloitte and Independent Newspapers.Community interventionHeartbeat is a non-governmental organisation that reaches close to 5 000 orphaned and vulnerable children in communities right across South Africa. These include child-headed households, granny-headed households and potential orphans living with terminally ill parents.The organisation was founded by Pienaar in 2000. By involving the community in raising and supporting the child, Heartbeat has developed a best practice model for the care of orphans.A staff of 105 full-time employees and 500 volunteers have extended this concept of community intervention from the first site in Carltonville, south-west of Johannesburg, to 16 further sites in seven of South Africa’s provinces.The organisation also helps orphans to access social services and schooling, ensures that they have access to medical care and provides regular food parcels.Direct social impactPienaar was selected from a pool of five finalists: Mitchell Besser, Mothers’ Programmes (Cape Town); Taddy Blecher, CIDA City Campus (Johannesburg); Varkey George, SHAWCO (Cape Town); Banks Gwaxula and Jacob Lief, Ubuntu (Port Elizabeth).The judges, Gill Marcus, Futhi Mtoba from Deloitte and Soul City founder Garth Japhet, considered the direct social impact, innovation, scale, replicability and sustainability of the finalists’ organisations.Pienaar is admitted into the global network of leading social entrepreneurs of the Schwab Foundation and is invited to the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

The changing face of Soweto

first_imgOnce a dusty, dry and forgotten dormitory for South Africa’s “city of gold”, Soweto is staking its claim to Johannesburg’s riches.The Orlando Towers have become a main attraction in Soweto, mainly for the extreme-sports activities taking place there. (Image: South African Tourism Flickr)Brand South Africa ReporterOnce a dusty, dry and forgotten dormitory for South Africa’s “city of gold”, Soweto is staking its claim to Johannesburg’s riches. At the same time, it is becoming a vibrant, sustainable and economically active city in its own right.Street hawkers unpacking their stock on the side of the road, pedestrians walking to and from work, taxis hooting for passengers and schoolchildren laughing as they walk to school – this is a typical morning in Soweto.Over the years, Soweto has risen from the apartheid era rubble to being one of South Africa’s main tourist destinations. The township has transformed; once consisting of mainly matchbox houses and dusty roads, today it has middle class and even upper class housing.A number of high-rise buildings, malls and shopping centres can also be spotted, another feature that contributes greatly to the changing look of the area.The streets are tarred and most households have access to running water and electricity. Yet a united community is still embraced, and the principle “it takes a whole village to raise a child” is still applied in many parts.And there is a concerted effort to green the once dusty brown area. According to the City of Joburg’s Region D manager for programmes and strategy, Lali Mohlabane, in the last financial year, three mini-parks in Naledi, Meadowlands and Freedom Park were built.LufherengDevelopment is keeping pace. Progress is steadily being made on the Lufhereng project, a mixed-use, mixed-income township situated west of Dobsonville. Already, families have moved into more than a thousand RDP houses. Once complete, it is expected to yield 24 500 homes, with schools, clinics, sports fields and recreational amenities making up a sustainable community.The project will include a significant component of urban agriculture, through small-scale intensive urban agriculture open-field plots, hydroponic farming units and fish breeding schemes.Soweto TheatreMeanwhile, 30% of construction is completed on the long-awaited Soweto Theatre in Jabulani, the first of its kind for a South African township. When complete, the theatre will comprise a 420-seat main venue with an end stage, furnished with wings and buttresses; two smaller venues of 180 and 90 seats; an indoor foyer serving all three venues; multilevel change rooms; storage rooms; and a greenroom.“We are expecting it to be finished by November this year, if all goes according to plan,” Mohlabane said. “The theatre will provide job opportunities for artists, actors, waiters and waitresses and cleaning staff.”The building of the Soweto Theatre is part of a fully fledged business and residential node planned for the suburb of Jabulani, which will include cluster homes, a technikon and a fire station.The precinct will have a R320-million shopping mall, the 300-bed Jabulani Provincial Hospital, and a residential area with three- to five-storey walk-up apartment blocks. Unit prices are expected to range between R300 000 and R500 000.Orlando EkhayaIn 2010, Heroes Bridge was completed at Orlando Ekhaya, a complex under construction in the Sowetan suburb of Power Park. The complex will take up 300 hectares of land, consisting of 30 000 square metres of retail and office space, in the possible seven floors to be created in the power station building. Some 60ha of land is to be allocated to conservation space.There are to be three levels of shops and restaurants within the old power station, with a townhouse complex behind it, and a bird sanctuary and a walkway around the dam, with jetties for water sports.The development will link the University of Johannesburg’s Soweto Campus across the road, in particular with the distinctive koppies behind the main campus, where trails are laid out.Other developments in the region include an emergency shelter in Tladi, and Rea Vaya, the flagship Bus Rapid Transit public transport system.“Rea Vaya came and changed the whole aesthetic structure of Soweto,” Mohlabane said. “The people are really using the buses so we cannot complain in that regard.”Soweto is also home to the world’s biggest hospital, Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Diepkloof. In addition, there are a number of provincial hospitals and City clinics. There are two private clinics, Tshepo-Themba Clinic in Meadowlands and Lesedi Clinic in Diepkloof.And there is the four-star Soweto Hotel on Freedom Square in Kliptown and a number of bed-and-breakfasts. Along the famous Vilakazi Street, there are well-known restaurants, including Nambitha and Sakhumzi.ChallengesThough the region continues to make significant progress, there are still minor issues that are a continual thorn in the side of its administrators, including: illegal dumping, decaying buildings, blocked sewages and rehabilitation of streets.“To a large extent, communities are to blame for not using properly the equipment that the City has entrusted them with,” Mohlabane said. “Take illegal dumping, for an example; there really is no reason for it, because each household was given a 340-litre bin and our people from Pikitup collect waste on a weekly basis without fail.”Soweto – Johannesburg’s Region D – comprises of a number of suburbs, including: Diepkloof, Meadowlands, Freedom Park, Devland, Naturena, Meredale, Dobsonville, Greater Soweto and parts of Protea Glen. Dominating languages in the region are Zulu, Xhosa, seSotho and Tswana.According to Mohlabane, a large part of Soweto’s economy is informal. “A lot of people in this area who are unemployed operate some kind of informal businesses from their homes or street corners.”Source: City of JohannesburgWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

South Africa maps its freshwater priority areas

first_imgSouth Africa’s Orange River is the longestin South Africa, flowing west for some 2 200 km. Along the way it provides hydroelectric power and water for irrigation.(Image: MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more free photos, visit the image library). South Africa’s major and minor rivers have been mapped and priority areas forconservation  have been identified.(Image: CSIR) MEDIA CONTACTS • Dr Jeanne Nel   NFEPA project co-leader RELATED ARTICLES • SA wine farm invests in biodiversity • New solutions for water conservation • Nedbank invests in water project • Rural community goes greenEmily van RijswijckProtection of South Africa’s renowned freshwater biodiversity has received a boost with the release of groundbreaking scientific data and supporting geo-informatics maps which identify priority areas for conservation.It is the first time that such a tool – which allows freshwater ecosystem and biodiversity goals to become part of the planning and decision-making processes – is available.The National Freshwater Ecosystems Priority Areas (NFEPA) project took three years to complete, with the help of more than 100 specialists in the field.Its aim is to enable better overall and sustainable management of these sensitive, yet economically important areas.The project was a collaboration between the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR); the South African National Biodiversity Institute; the Water Research Commission; national Departments of Water Affairs and Environmental Affairs; the Worldwide Fund for Nature; the South African Institute of Aquatic Biodiversity; and the South African National Parks authority.The available information includes spatial maps with data and metadata, an implementation manual and guidelines.Project co-leader Dr Jeanne Nel, the principal scientist of the biodiversity and ecosystems services at the CSIR, says it should help key decision makers, whose planning will impact on these systems, “to keep these areas in mind when making critical decisions”.The information is also an invaluable research tool to academics and scientists. Valuable water management toolThe NFEPA maps and supporting information is freely available online and is expected to be an excellent water management tool. The maps provide guidance on how many and which rivers, wetlands and estuaries should remain in a natural or near natural condition to support the water resource protection goals of the National Water Act of 1998.Nel says the guidelines do not advise against development, but that they are rather aimed at bringing about development that supports sustainability of the natural environment. The NFEPA project stresses that the health of ecological systems and associated natural capital should underpin social and economic development.The study found that only 18% of South Africa’s water supply areas are formally protected.All inland water bodies, whether fresh or saline, are defined as freshwater systems. This includes rivers, tributaries, lakes, estuaries and wetlands. South Africa’s diverse freshwater ecosystem ranges from sub-tropical areas such as the Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park, to the semi-arid interior, and the temperate rivers running through the Western Cape fynbos region.The Cape Floral Kingdom is part of this fynbos biome and is so unique in terms of size and number of species found just here, that it was declared a biodiversity hotspot by the UN Environmental Programme, and later received Natural World Heritage Site status.   Healthy tributariesThe NFEPA study divided the country into different ecosystems and produced some surprising findings. For example, it revealed that 30% of South Africa’s smaller rivers remain remarkably healthy.Nel believes the findings of the completed study will be critical in ensuring that these ecosystems remain in good shape, because they provide “a flushing potential” for larger ecosystems.She adds: “Our tributaries are in good health and should be seen as critical buffer zones which support the health of our working rivers. They hold great conservation potential.” But not surprisingly, and matching the global trend, over half of the country’s other freshwater systems are threatened. An alarming 57% of rivers are threatened while the figure for wetlands stands at 65 %.A concerning statistic is that of South Africa’s coastal estuaries which shows an 82 % decline. As a unique ecosystem on its own, the highveld region in the country’s north-eastern interior was highlighted as one that was particularly threatened.The study also highlights the importance of conserving the country’s 19 remaining free-flowing rivers.  Free-flowing rivers contain no dams and flow undisturbed from their source to the confluence with a larger river or the sea.The report notes that these rivers should receive top priority to retain their free-flowing character as this is a rare feature in the South African landscape and should be seen as part of our natural heritage.Multi-faceted approachThere are several private-public partnership rehabilitation programmes underway to halt decline in various biospheres. Through the Working for Wetlands programme, over 800 of South Africa’s more than 114 000 wetlands have already been rehabilitated since the programme was started 10 years ago. The national Working for Water programme has been clearing invading alien plants since 1995. The programme grew from 20 projects in 1996 to over 300 projects currently.The Thicket Restoration programme is restoring degraded thicket at various areas in the Eastern Cape province, including parts of the Baviaanskloof Mega-reserve. Besides providing additional job creation potential to poor communities in the area, it is estimated that the restoration of degraded land can sequester up to 411 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per hectare.last_img read more
