We all have a short life - Ai Weiwei

NIHRF Human Rights Festival Northern Ireland

Each year the 10th December is celebrated as Human Rights Day across the world. The date marks the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption and proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948. Civil society groups across the world use this date as an opportunity to celebrate and mark the importance of human rights globally.

Every year a diverse range of organisations across Northern Ireland have traditionally held events in the week surrounding this date to mark the occasion and highlight different aspects of human rights as they apply locally and internationally. In 2012 a number of these organisations came together to pool those individual events into a programme of activities promoted together for the first time as the Northern Ireland Human Rights Festival.

The festival is administered by the Human Rights Consortium in collaboration with organisations from civic society. The distinct events that make up the festival however, are developed and run by organisations and individuals with an interest in the protection and promotion of human rights. The diversity of events and the range of issues covered as part of the festival are reflective of the universal nature of human rights.

It is hoped that the festival will expand over time and become a fixed part of the programme of Northern Ireland festivals while continuing to expand local awareness of the importance of celebrating and protecting human rights.

European New Deal - Yanis Varoufakis

Dear DiEM25 Member,

This is a good time to be a DiEMer.

Last week we “seized the day” and plunged ourselves into a challenging, perilous, but also exciting new phase for our young movement: Yes, we will go for it!

May 2019, here we come!

Our internal vote was decisive: 73% of verified members voted and of those 93% voted “yes”. Even before DiEM25’s second anniversary comes and goes, we shall begin working tirelessly to take our European New Deal, our Progressive Agenda for Europe, to ballot boxed across Europe in the May 2019 European Parliament election.

Whatever happens in the end, this is a historic moment: Never before has a movement tried to present a SINGLE comprehensive policy agenda to ALL Europeans on the basis of ONE party list across our divided and fragmenting Union.

We are in it to win. But our notion of victory is very, very different. Victory for us means putting on the agenda, everywhere, our progressive, moderate, but also radical policy framework. It means doing so in a manner that shows Europeans that a transnational European democracy is not only possible but also that it is already here – in embryonic form within the ranks of DiEM25. It means giving birth to a new politics, a new ethos in the face of elections, a new spirit of electoral engagement by activists who detest ‘authority’ but who contest elections to restore sovereignty to persons, collectives, cities, regions, peoples and Parliaments.

From today, we begin discussions in every country, in every city with civil society and with political actors whose politics is close to our Manifesto and whose policies are consistent with our Progressive Agenda for Europe and our European New Deal. The aim? To prepare, in good time, the SINGLE comprehensive policy agenda to be presented in May 2019 to voters everywhere. Our members, DSCs, National Collectives, the Coordinating Collective, all of us must prepare for this Grand Dialogue across Europe. Let’s begin! Continue

Stop returning people to Afghanistan! Taibeh Abbasi

1000s of students in Norway are doing everything they can to protect their classmate Taibeh from being deported to Afghanistan. Join them and defend all Afghan asylum seekers at risk of deportation from Norway.

Taibeh dreams of graduating from high school next summer and becoming a doctor, but right now she lives in fear of being deported to a country she has never even visited.
Like Taibeh, many other Afghans are at risk of being returned from Norway.

In the past years thousands of Afghans have been returned from Europe, despite evidence that they face serious harm in the country. Norway claims that Afghans can be returned as the country is safe, but 2016 was the deadliest year on record in Afghanistan. Returning people to Afghanistan right now is not only cruel, it is also reckless and illegal.

But people are starting to stand up for those at risk, like the 1000s of students who stand with Taibeh to stop her from being sent to Afghanistan.
Stand up for all the Afghan asylum seekers like Taibeh at risk of being returned to Afghanistan, sign the petition.

Call on the Norwegian government to stop returning people to Afghanistan until the country is stable enough to ensure the safety and dignity. Your voice on this petition will help us to show the Norwegian government that we stand with people at risk of being returned to Afghanistan in Norway.
The Norwegian government thinks we don’t care, show them we do. Sign and share to your networks now. Continue

Erano tutte giovanissime, adolescenti tra i 14 e i 18 anni. Sono morte lungo la traversata dalla Nigeria alle coste italiane. In 26 sono arrivate ieri, senza vita, a Salerno a bordo della nave spagnola Cantabria.
Sulla stessa imbarcazione quasi 400 migranti, tra cui numerosi bambini, alcuni non accompagnati.

La notizia, oltre a essere ripresa da gran parte dei media, compresi i tg delle principali edizioni, ha fatto il giro del web che mai come in questa occasione è stato invaso da reazioni e commenti sconcertanti, anche per chi è ormai abituato al linguaggio d'odio sempre più imperante sui social.

Gianluca Costantini in CONTAR O MUNDO A reportagem em banda desenhada

Gabriel García Márquez chamou ao jornalismo a melhor profissão do mundo. O ofício de analisar, questionar e decifrar a realidade continua a ser um trabalho essencial em qualquer sociedade e a reportagem persiste como o género onde esse trabalho pode fazer-se com um fôlego mais largo, um olhar com múltiplos ângulos, uma procura dedicada das histórias e dos momentos que definem uma história maior. A linguagem da banda desenhada é uma das ferramentas possíveis para esse trabalho. Não será o mais reconhecido, ou o mais óbvio, mas as últimas décadas têm mostrado uma vitalidade assinalável desta relação. Nesta exposição pretendemos mostrar como a banda desenhada responde de modos diversos e com soluções criativas às necessidades de um género jornalístico concreto (mesmo quando lhe empurra os limites em direcções menos canónicas).
