Pungesti: The village that said no
pungesti, romania

06 Mar 2014

The villagers of Pungesti, Romania are unlikely eco-activists. The tiny village garnered worldwide attention in October 2013 when villagers started protesting against US energy giant Chevron's fracking activities in their village. Hundreds of activists from across the country also flocked to the Pungesti to support the residents in their fight. Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, consists of pumping chemicals at high pressure into deep rock to extract oil or gas. The village's inhabitants, most of whom are elderly farmers who rely on agriculture to survive, are worried fracking could damage the local environment by contaminating their land and ground water. They say fracking will lead to health problems, air pollution and deforestation. Following the protests, police and gendarmerie increased their presence in the village and many residents were subsequently injured in protests that turned violent.

In 2010, the Romanian Government quietly allowed fracking operations to commence by signing an agreement with Chevron, giving it access to more than two million acres of land in Romania. The villagers managed to collect over a thousand signatures from a population of 3,300 for a petition demanding the dismissal of the mayor, who they accuse of corruption. However, the Romanian government disregarded the petition and the mayor remains in office.

Hun Sen is the second longest serving leader in Southeast Asia and is one of the longest serving prime ministers in the world, having been in power through various coalitions since 1985. In 1987, Amnesty International accused Hun Sen's government of torture of thousands of political prisoners using "electric shocks, hot irons and near-suffocation with plastic bags. Hun Sen's government has been responsible for the sale of vast amounts of land to foreign investors resulting in the forced eviction of thousands upon thousands of residents from their homes throughout the country.

Refugees from Rwanda have been waiting for a change in their country since the Genocide of 1994.
Many more have arrived over the intervening years fleeing persecution and a progressively falling standard of living in the countryside.
The Rwandan government and the UNHCR have been pressuring governments in 12 countries to push the refugees back home.
In many instances, the Rwandan government uses spies and bribes are paid to disrupt and confuse the refugees, making it hard for them to organize.

Stateless gives the overview of the failure of the UNHCR and Rwanda to give a lasting and safe home for the refugees. It also points out failures of the UNHCR in the institution of it's own mandates regarding article 51 on refugees and the "Cessation Clause".
Because of a small group of refugees and dedicated Human Rights defenders, Rwanda and the UNHCR were thwarted in instituting the forced return of refugees in all but 3 of the 12 countries that have been pressured to accept the terms of the UN clause on refugees.
Featuring Paul Rusesabagina of Hotel Rwanda fame, Theogene Rudesingwa, former Rwandan Ambassador to the US (now in exile)

Azerbaijan: An Illusion (11 of 12)

With Azerbaijan winning a temporary seat in the UN Security Council last year and becoming a member of PACE (Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly).
It would be easy to think that leaders in the west would criticise and put pressure on the president Ilham Aliyev to implement democratic reform and release political prisoners. This is however not the case.
In a recent article featured in the Danish national daily newspaper Politiken a report was mentioned which documents that some PACE members who are perceived by the Azeri Government to be the country’s “friends” receive 0,4-0,6 grams of caviar at an estimated value per kilograms of almost 1700 dollars. Trips and conferences in the land of fire, as Azerbaijan is called, are seen as well with lavish gifts to follow.

With this kind of behaviour it has managed to stop it’s critics. One of PACE’s jobs are to overview that new members in the east uphold the promise they made when they joined, to uphold human rights and release political prisoners.
The writers of the report say itself that the government in Baku has managed to avoid its obligations towards the European Council.
According to Amnesty international the lack of criticism is to be found in Azerbaijan being a very strategic country. Being next door to Iran and a stop over for equipment and personnel to Afghanistan and of course the vast resources of oil and natural gas.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2012 was held in Azerbaijan. The land of fire, as it is called, put on a massive and spectacular show but the festivities was tainted by the countries poor human rights record and its harsh crack down on peaceful protests. The country’s own opposition tried to draw attention to the fact that the country is not a fair democracy even though the government try to present themselves as such.
A protester is getting taken away and shut up at a peaceful rally at the lavish boulevard along Baku’s harbour front. The secret police would walk around the protesters and single them out. The minute they started shouting slogans they would be shut up dragged of into a police car that would speed of or they would be put in a bus and taken to a police station. Often this would be done very quickly and violently.

According to Amnesty International it is not a rare sight to see protesters getting arrested, registered and then left somewhere. If you are a part of arranging the protest you could look at jail time. Normally the regime charges people with hooliganism if they need someone to disappear for a few years. That or send them to do military service.
Unfortunately there are reports of alleged torture of people that are incarcerated.

Independent journalists work under tough conditions with no protection from the government and are subject of targeting. In that regard there have been two murders on journalists that the authorities have lacked investigating.
The independent journalist Khadija Ismayilova experienced the wrath of the elite. She was investigating corruption within the government when she was threatened to stop. She kept going forward with the investigations when she was filmed with a hidden camera having sex with her boyfriend. The footage was then leaked in order to defame her. There have also been accounts of people being falsely charged with possession of drugs to discredit them. According to NGO’s this is a normal procedure used by the government to crack down on any critical voices.

The statue of the country’s modern founding father Heydar Aliyev is standing tall on one of Baku’s many large city squares. The sight of the man that sculptured the country is not rare. The capitol and the country are scattered with portraits of him. Heydar Aliyev was leader of communist Azerbaijan from the late 60’s until 1987. He seized the presidency in 1993 in a bloodless coup a couple of years after Azerbaijan gained its independence.

He was the man to modernize the country and help transform it from a communist satellite state to a sovereign nation. Although not the first president after the Russians left he is the one that formed the country’s modern history.

His son Ilham became president in 2003 after an election that did not meet international standards and were scattered with irregularities.
Some international observers called the latest election in 2010 a farce.
In a 2009 referendum the president removed limits on the maximum terms a president can preside in office. The decision was widely disputed. Critics of the government state that the country is in reality an autocracy.

The area District 205 is located half an hour drive from the city centre of Baku.
When you meet people on the outskirts of the city they are friendly but not much to talk about the conditions that they endure.
It is dirty, dusty with poor infrastructure and buildings that in no way can match those of Baku. A working railway splits the area.

Although according to The World Bank and IFAD the nation has seen considerable improvements the last years. But the rural areas are still very impoverished. In the rural areas poverty was in 2008 at circa 18 percent and the national level was at 15,8 percent.

According to IFAD the problem is lack of development in the agricultural sector over recent decades. The conditions of farm labourers are very unfavourable and there are few alternative means of income in those areas. The lack of infrastructure and power supplies is a problem as well.

The most impoverished people are the around one million refugees and internally displaced persons. They come from the collapse of the Soviet Union and from Azerbaijan’s conflict with Armenia. These people are mainly being housed in urban areas and many rely on humanitarian aid for survival.

The woman was a part of a peaceful protest during the Eurovision. After the woman was targeted she was quietly taken to the vehicle by several police officers and undercover agents.
There is a lack of freedom of speech. You have a certain space to speak out but only light criticism is tolerated. During the Eurovision the authorities struck down hard on anyone trying to draw attention to Azerbaijan’s poor human rights record.

According to Max Tucker of Amnesty international it can be very dangerous to be a part of a protest and that way speak your mind.

“Protesters are arrested just for shouting the word freedom. It can get you up to 10 days in prison. If you are organizing the protest you can get several years in prison.”

Another approach is to arrest everyone that is believed to be a part of the protest take them to the police station and registrate them. There have been reports of people being interrogated about their political persuasion. When the interrogation is over people will be driven out into the desert and left to find their way back on their own. It is an effective way to dismantle the protest.

During the Eurovision this happened during at least one demonstration that took place in front of the national TV station.
As of now there are at least 5 political prisoners in jails in Azerbaijan and other ongoing investigations into opposition people.

Egyptian Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri said that the government transferred USD 6.14 billion from special funds of former regime offices to the state budget, in a press conference at the headquarters of the General Authority for Investment in Cairo, Thursday, April 19. Ex-regime offices once kept public monies in special private funds that were not incorporated into the state budget, and as such were not subject to oversight by any budget committee.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri:
"The issue of special funds has been going on for more than twenty years. Former regime government offices established these special funds from the public money resource to use for employment, salaries, rewards, etc. We traced these funds strictly, and like I said all these funds are now present at the Central Bank in the General Budget Account."

Al-Ganzouri stated that the government's costs have been gradually reduced saving USD 4.14 billion. He also shed light on the efforts done to relief Egypt's foreign debt.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Egypt's Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri:
"We have been keen on minimizing the foreign debts. They were USD 5.83 billion, seven months ago. In March 2012, they were reduced to USD 5.54 billion."

The Egyptian Prime Minister told reporters that even though the country's revenues declined to USD 12.8 billion over the past few months, the government successfully achieved relative and notable economic stability.

Cairo Criminal Court adjourned on Sunday, April 1, the trial of iron tycoon and leader of the dismantled ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) Ahmed Ezz for money laundering of EGP 6 billion and 429 million (about USD 1.065 billion) to May 6.
[1 USD = 6.03800 EGP]

The delay was due to the absence of Ezz's lawyer Farid al-Deeb, who is also the lawyer of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, as he reportedly suffered angina and travelled to France for treatment.
Unprecedentedly, power went out and the judge ordered Ezz to come out of the dock to be seen. Some allege the power was deliberately cut by the security men to prevent photographers and cameramen from shooting.

In previous trials, the prosecution said Ezz profiteered from his position as CEO of Al-Dikhila steel factory, in which the state is a main shareholder, from 2001 to 2011.

In September 2011, Ezz was sent to ten years in prison for financial corruption.

Cairo, Egypt | March 25, 2012

Egypt's Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim handed medals and appreciation certificates to 85 families of 2011 police who have died in a ceremony held on Sunday, March 25, in Cairo.

The Interior Minister commended the national role of the deceased police officers and security men who sacrificed their lives for the security of their nation.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim:
"The state honors the police martyrs by granting them medals, which is considered an appreciation for them and indication of the state's care for them and understanding of their positive national role in confronting the elements of evil that are still spreading corruption. However, we're still persistent on confronting them all until we achieve stability, Allah willing."

On the other hand, Ibrahim reaffirmed complete rejection of the calls for "police purification", represented in demands of dismissals of police leaderships, particularly those believed to be too old or too connected to the former regime.

Ibrahim yet assured that the ministry is undergoing a process of police restructure to enhance the authority's efficiency.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim:
"Police purification is rejected by the leadership, officers and security men of the Ministry of Interior. We're working on the police restructure. We cannot dismiss leadership over night from an authority representing the state's sovereignty and backbone. We said that the officers doing jobs that can be done by civilians could be replaced with civilian and use the officers in security tasks. However, civilians should work under police leadership due to the relevance of their work to security, such as the Passport Authority."

The Interior Minister also talked about the controversial issue of soccer violence in Port Said that killed at least 74 early February and said that Egypt's Football Association (EFA) imposed the slightest sanctions on Port Said's Al-Masry, causing more anger and dissatisfaction of Al-Ahly Ultras, particularly the family members of victims.

He reaffirmed that the police authority is restoring its role and is persistent on maintaining the country's stability.
