Release imprisoned journalists worldwide

UN should demand release of jailed
journalists amid COVID-19 pandemic

CPJ is calling on several UN special mandate holders to join its effort to secure the release of all jailed journalists globally in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 250 journalists are behind bars for their work, according to CPJ’s most recent prison census.

• Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) – 11 April 2020

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Committee to Protect Journalists calls on governments to release all journalists from their prisons. On behalf of more than 250 journalists behind bars, we call on authorities to free these political prisoners immediately and unconditionally.

For journalists jailed in countries affected by the virus, freedom is now a matter of life and death. Imprisoned journalists have no control over their surroundings, cannot choose to isolate, and are often denied necessary medical care.

The World Health Organization states that “People deprived of their liberty, and those living or working in enclosed environments in their close proximity, are likely to be more vulnerable to the COVID-19 disease than the general population.”

Global press freedom and human rights organizations are calling on world leaders to immediately release all imprisoned journalists. Add your voice to the call and sign our petition today!

The Committee to Protect Journalists submitted a call to several U.N. special mandate holders yesterday encouraging them to join CPJ’s effort to secure the release of all jailed journalists globally in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

Russian activist and artist, Yulia Tsvetkova, is facing six year sentence for drawing the female body

 

Russian activist and artist, Yulia Tsvetkova, is facing prosecution and harassment for defending women’s and LGBTI rights.

She has been under house arrest since 22 November, under absurd charges of “production and dissemination of pornography” for her drawings of the female body. She is facing up to six years in prison if convicted. Yulia Tsvetkova is a prisoner of conscience and must be immediately and unconditionally released.

Yulia Tsvetkova is an LGBTI and women’s rights activist, artist and stage director, from Komsomolsk-on-Amur, the Russian Far East.

She was detained on 20 November 2019 and put on house arrest two days later, after being charged with the “production and dissemination of pornographic materials”, for making body positive drawings of the female body and sharing them on social media.

Her drawings included pictures of female reproductive organs, and she shared them online as part of her women’s empowerment campaign.

On the day of her arrest, police searched Yulia’s apartment and the children’s educational club where she worked previously. The police seized her electronic devices, documents, and brochures on gender issues. Yulia later said that during the search police officers referred to her as a “lesbian, sex trainer and propagandist leader”.

  

Yulia has been the target of an overtly homophobic campaign since March 2019, when she was forced to leave Merak, the amateur youth theatre company she worked at, after police launched an investigation into alleged “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors”.

The investigation was launched in reaction to Yulia’s anti-bullying, anti-discrimination play, Blue and Pink.

On 11 December 2019 Yulia was found guilty of “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors”, and fined 50,000 rubles (approximately 600 GBP), for serving as the administrator of two LGBTI online communities on the popular Russian social media site, VKontakte.

Both of the online communities were properly marked as “18+”, as required by Russian law. Even under the confines of the homophobic Russian “gay propaganda” legislation, the “offence” should only be valid if the “propaganda” material is targeted at people under the age of 18.

On 17 January, Yulia informed the media that new proceedings had been opened against her, under the same Article of the Code of Administrative Offences that she had previously been charged under. This time she was being prosecuted for posting a drawing she made depicting two same-sex couples with child on social media, alongside the statement, “Family is where love is. Support LGBT+ families”.

She published the drawing in support of a same-sex couple who were forced to flee Russia with their adopted children after authorities threatened to remove their children from their custody.

Child refugee faces prison over Facebook posts

 

Tujan al-Bukhaiti is a 17-year-old Yemeni refugee. She is being tried in Jordan on charges of ‘blasphemy’ and ‘insulting religious figures’ over her social media posts, including posts by her dad that she has shared. Stopped from going to school

On 11 December 2019 Tujan’s school threatened to expel her for sharing ‘beliefs that do not represent the school’ on her Facebook page. When she refused their ultimatum they banned her from attending classes.
A week later she was brought in by police for questioning and a statement was taken without her parents or lawyer there. This is illegal and violates her right to a fair trial.

When she was questioned she says that an officer went through her Facebook page insulting various members of her family.

Tujan has been made to go to court three times for her trial and each time the date has been postponed. She is facing potentially a month in prison and a lifetime criminal record just for expressing her views. If Jordan allows the trial to go ahead they will be breaking international law by violating her right to freedom of expression. This young woman should not be punished just for speaking her mind.

Tujan is just a teenager. As a refugee, she’s already been through so much. Jordan should drop this case immediately and let her get on with her studies.

Please send an email to Jordan’s Minister of Justice .

Death Blossoms. Reflections from a Prisoner of Conscience, Expanded Edition by Mumia Abu-Jamal

Profound meditations on life, death, freedom, family, and faith, written by radical Black journalist, Mumia Abu-Jamal, while he was awaiting his execution.

During the spring of 1996, black journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal was living on death row and expecting to be executed for a crime he steadfastly maintained he did not commit—the murder of a white Philadelphia police officer. It was in that period, with the likelihood of execution looming over him, that he received visits from members of the Bruderhof spiritual community––refugees from Hitler’s Germany––anti-fascist, anti-racist, and deeply opposed to the death penalty. Inspired by the encounters, Mumia hand-wrote Death Blossoms—a series of short essays and personal vignettes reflecting on his search for spiritual meaning, freedom, and truth in a deeply racist and materialistic society.

Featuring a new introduction by Mumia and a report by Amnesty International detailing how his trial was “in violation of minimum international standards,” this new edition of Death Blossoms is essential reading for the Black Lives Matter era, and is destined to endure as a classic in American prison literature.

“In this revised edition of his groundbreaking work, Death Blossoms, convicted death row prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal tackles hard and existential questions, searching for God and a greater meaning in a caged life that may be cut short if the state has its way and takes his life. As readers follow Mumia’s journey through his poems, short essays, and longer musings, they will learn not only about this singular individual who has retained his humanity despite the ever present threat of execution, but also about themselves and our society: what we are willing to tolerate and who we are willing to cast aside. If there is any justice, Mumia will prevail in his battle for his life and for his freedom.”––Lara Bazelon, author of Rectify: The Power of Restorative Justice After Wrongful Conviction

“Mumia Abu-Jamal has challenged us to see the prison at the center of a long history of US oppression, and he has inspired us to keep faith with ordinary struggles against injustice under the most terrible odds and circumstances. Written more than two decades ago, Death Blossoms helps us to see beyond prison walls; it is as timely and as necessary as the day it was published.”––Nikhil Pal Singh, founding faculty director of the NYU Prison Eduction Program, author of Race and America’s Long War.

London Literature Festival with Fatima Bhutto: Bollywood, K-Pop and Beyond

literature & poetry # spoken word & live literature # Fatima Bhutto: Bollywood, K-Pop and Beyond # Part of London Literature Festival # 17 – 27 Oct 2019

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is BHUTTOl9.jpegIndia’s Bollywood films, Turkish dizi soap opera and South Korean pop music: mass culture from the East is taking on Hollywood and finding a truly global audience.

Hear from acclaimed author Fatima Bhutto about the vast cultural movement emerging from beyond the Western world.

Drawing on her book New Kings of the World: Dispatches from Bollywood, Dizi, and K-Pop, Bhutto speaks on the arbiters behind these cultural movements.

She examines how they interweave traditional values into urbanised settings and how they appeal to many millions.

From behind the scenes of Magnificent Century, Turkey’s biggest TV show, watched by upwards of 200 million people across 43 countries, to South Korea to see how ‘Gangnam Style’ became the first YouTube video with one billion views, Bhutto charts the extraordinary rise and reach of these cultural phenomena.

Bhutto was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 1982. She grew up in Syria and Pakistan. She is the author of five previous books, including The Shadow of the Crescent Moon which was longlisted in 2014 for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction and highly acclaimed novel The Runaways.

Design van het Derde Rijk in Design Museum Den Bosch

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is design-3erijk.jpeg

Design Museum Den Bosch presenteert de eerste grote overzichtstentoonstelling van design van het Derde Rijk. De tentoonstelling Design van het Derde Rijk toont de enorme bijdrage van vormgeving aan de ontwikkeling van de kwaadaardige nazi-ideologie.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is design-3erijk103.jpegMet de Volkswagen Kever, de Olympische Spelen in 1936, de swastika en de films van Leni Riefenstahl en andere belangrijke stukken uit Nederland en Duitsland. Design van het Derde Rijk: waarom in Design Museum Den Bosch?

Musea zijn gewend om de goede kant van cultuur te zien. Juist design wordt vaak gepresenteerd als een bijdrage aan een betere wereld.

De geschiedenis van vormgeving bestaat daarom uit steeds terugkerende onderwerpen die het moreel juiste vertegenwoordigen.

Maar design reflecteert de wereld, met al zijn goede én slechte kanten. In de tentoonstelling Design van het Derde Rijk is de vormgeving een instrument in de handen van het ultieme kwaad.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is design-3erijk101.jpegDe nazi’s waren meesters in het inzetten van vormgeving om hun doel te bereiken; massa’s mensen wisten ze ermee aan hun kant te krijgen en te onderdrukken. Design Museum Den Bosch is een designmuseum nieuwe stijl met een kritische opstelling. Als je volmondig dit nooit weer wilt kunnen zeggen, moet je de moeite nemen te analyseren hoe de processen van beïnvloeding destijds werkten. Dat is wat deze tentoonstelling doet.

Het design van het Derde Rijk was in grondslag tegenstrijdig. De tentoonstelling Design van het Derde Rijk is daarom ingedeeld aan de  hand van verschillende tegenstellingen.

Zuiverheid stond centraal, wat betekende dat verschillende bevolkingsgroepen als Joden, homo’s en zigeuners dienden te worden vernietigd. Het nazisme bedacht en steunde op een eigen geschiedenis, maar was tegelijkertijd fanatiek gericht op de toekomst. Het was vervuld van romantiek, maar ook geobsedeerd door moderne technologie.

Naar buiten toe liet het nazisme een verleidelijk beeld zien van voorspoed en zorgeloos vertier, terwijl in 1933 al de eerste concentratiekampen werden opgezet. Samen laten deze paradoxen zien hoe het nazisme binnen twaalf jaar eerst tot een enorme ontwikkeling en vervolgens tot een daverende ineenstorting kwam. En op welke manier design in dat proces een doorslaggevende rol speelde.

De tegenstellingen die het nazisme kenmerken worden getoond aan de hand van een ruime selectie objecten uit Nederlandse en Duitse musea en verzamelingen. Zo zijn er architectuurelementen en meubels te zien uit het Haus der Deutschen Kunst en de Rijkskanselarij.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is design-3erijk102.jpegDe ontwerpen tonen hoe de nazi’s teruggrepen op de classicistische vormgeving als machtsvertoon en symbool voor een nieuwe Duitse cultuur. De vele tijdschriften die opgenomen zijn in de tentoonstelling geven een beeld van het ver doorgevoerde doelgroepenbeleid van de nazi’s. Van moeders tot soldaten, van jonge meisjes tot internationale bezoekers, iedereen werd op een eigen manier aangesproken. Instructieboeken laten zien hoe precies ieder onderdeel van de beeldvorming rond de nazi’s werd ontworpen. Bij de massabijeenkomsten werd niets aan het toeval over gelaten.

De bruiklenen komen onder andere van het Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlijn, het Münchner Stadtmuseum, het Haus der Kunst en het Institut für Zeitgeschichte in München, het Eyewitness Museum in Beek en het Nationaal Militair Museum in Soesterberg.

Bij de tentoonstelling is er een uitgebreid publieksprogramma, met activiteiten voor alle doelgroepen.

De tentoonstelling participeert in de herdenking 75 jaar vrijheid.

Daniil Charms: De dappere egel

Daniil Charms die in werkelijkheid Daniil Ivanovic Juvacov heette, werd in 1905 in St. Petersburg geboren, waar hij in 1942 stierf.

In 1926 richtte hij met Aleksandr Vvdenski en Nikolaj Zabolotski de avantgardegroep Oberiu (Objeedinenije realnogo iskoesstva – ‘Vereniging van reële kunst’) op. Hun doel was een artistieke revolutie door te voeren, parallel aan de politieke revolutie.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Charms2.jpgAlhoewel ze het woord niet gebruikten pleitten ze voor absurde kunst. De doodsteek kwam toen ze in 1930 beschuldigd werden van protest tegen de dictatuur van het proletariaat. Charms werd in 1931 veroordeeld tot verbanning naar Koersk, waarvandaan hij in 1933 terugkeerde.

Hij legde zich toen, omdat zijn werk voor volwassenen niet-publicabel was geworden, toe op kinderliteratuur.

Uiteindelijk werd hij in 1941, tijdens het beleg van het Leningrad (tot 1924 Petersburg genoemd), weer gearresteerd en krankzinnig verklaard. Charms stierf begin 1942, vermoedelijk uitgehongerd, in de psychiatrische afdeling van de gevangenis Kresty in Leningrad. Hij heeft geen graf.

Na zijn dood werden zijn manuscripten teruggevonden. In de jaren zestig begonnen publicaties van dit onuitgegeven werk te verschijnen, aanvankelijk vooral in het Westen. Op grond hiervan kreeg Charms algauw de reputatie van Ruslands belangrijkste absurdistische auteur.

10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World by Elif Shafak

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is shafak-elif.jpegFor Leila, each minute after her death brings a sensuous memory: the taste of spiced goat stew, sacrificed by her father to celebrate the long-awaited birth of a son; the sight of bubbling vats of lemon and sugar which the women use to wax their legs while the men attend mosque; the scent of cardamom coffee that Leila shares with a handsome student in the brothel where she works.

Each memory, too, recalls the friends she made at each key moment in her life – friends who are now desperately trying to find her. . .

Elif Shafak is an award-winning British-Turkish novelist and the most widely read female author in Turkey.

She writes in both Turkish and English, and has published seventeen books, eleven of which are novels. Her work has been translated into fifty languages. Shafak holds a PhD in political science and she has taught at various universities in Turkey, the US and the UK, including St Anne’s College, Oxford University, where she is an honorary fellow. She is a member of World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Creative Economy and a founding member of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR). An advocate for women’s rights, LGBT rights and freedom of speech, Shafak is an inspiring public speaker and twice a TED global speaker, each time receiving a standing ovation.

Shafak contributes to many major publications around the world and she has been awarded the title of Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres. In 2017 she was chosen by Politico as one of the twelve people who would make the world better. She has judged numerous literary prizes and is chairing the Wellcome Prize 2019.

She lives in London and can be found at www.elifshafak.com
