first_img to go further May 19, 2021 Find out more Guinean journalist finally freed after being held for nearly three months GuineaAfrica October 8, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “We know you, we’ll make you pay,” soldiers tell journalists Soldiers in Conakry have been addressing journalists in a very threatening manner, with such comments as “If you go out the door, I’ll cut your tongue out,” “The next time things happen, we’ll know where to find you” and “We know you, we’ll make you pay.” Ten days after army Red Berets dispersed an opposition protest with a great deal of bloodshed in Conakry on 28 September, Reporters Without Borders warns that the climate for the press has become extremely menacing and appeals to mediators to try to protect journalists.“A resolution of the Guinean crisis requires protecting not just civilians in general but also journalists in particular, as they are the target of military abuses,” Reporters Without Borders said. “And if Guinea’s military leader, Capt. Dadis Camara, claims to be still governing the country, he must make his troops see reason.”The staff of one privately-owned radio station, some of whom have received explicit threats from soldiers close to Camara, are currently barricaded inside the station and are producing just minimum programming. Several journalists with other news media, whom Reporters Without Borders prefers not to identify for obvious security reasons, have been accused of “giving information to foreigners” and have received death threats by telephone. Some journalists are withholding their by-lines from their reports, while others have fled their homes.When Burkina Faso President Blaise Compaoré flew to Conakry on 5 October as a would-be mediator in the crisis, journalists from privately-owned media were denied access to the airport area where visiting dignitaries arrive. Some of the journalists were roughed up in front of the minister in charge of presidential security. Only state media journalists and the Burkina Faso media were admitted.In Bellevue, where the meetings with President Compaoré took place, Red Berets and the bodyguards of territorial administration minister Frédéric Kolié poured insults on all the journalists present, promising to go after them “as soon as the next riots break out.” “Everyone will talk about it,” the Red Berets said. Even the state TV was accused of “complicity” with the protesters for failing to show a ransacked police station.Reporters Without Borders interviewed Mouctar Bah, the Conakry correspondent of Agence France-Presse and Radio France Internationale, after the 28 September bloodshed in Conakry. He described how he and BBC correspondent Amadou Diallo were threatened and roughed up by soldiers. Read the previous release . Many journalists were beaten and injured on 28 September, some sustained stab wounds and some were arrested for several hours. At the same time, their equipment was systematically stolen or smashed. All of the country’s journalists – print media, radio, TV and website reporters – are now threatened.Picture: AFP/Seyllou Guinean journalist’s continuing detention is “incomprehensible,” RSF says News Help by sharing this information Guinea : RSF and AIPS call for release of two imprisoned journalists Organisation center_img News Follow the news on Guinea News April 15, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News RSF_en GuineaAfrica April 9, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

first_imgGovernor Jim Douglas yesterday received a letter from Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, James Oberstar (D-MN) commending Vermont for ranking first in nation for “the percentage of wastewater infrastructure Recovery Act funds put out to bid, under contract, and underway.”  Vermont has committed all of its wastewater infrastructure funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).“The entire Recovery Act team, from our Office of Economic Stimulus and Recovery to the Department of Environmental Conservation, has done a tremendous job ensuring that we are getting these critical infrastructure funds into our communities and creating jobs expeditiously,” said Governor Douglas.  “When Congress passed the Recovery Act last year, it was up to the states to implement much of the funding.  We are doing our part to get the money into our economy quickly, while being responsible stewards of the public’s resources.”Wastewater infrastructure projects funded through ARRA include the Twin Oaks stormwater project in South Burlington, the combined sewer overflow elimination project in Springfield and a solar panel installation project at the wastewater treatment plant in Montpelier, among others.  Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Justin Johnson said of the state’s work, “With a combination of smart work and good sense, Vermont was able to identify good projects and get the stimulus funds obligated quickly and efficiently.”Source: Governor’s office. 5.7.2010###last_img read more

first_img Mark Moisley joins GBGB as Executive Commercial Director August 6, 2020 ARC confirms Belle Vue closure August 3, 2020 Related Articles Share Share StumbleUpon The future of Manchester’s Belle Vue Greyhound Stadium is to be decided today, which could see the track demolished and the site redeveloped to build 247 houses.The proposals made by Countryside Properties were recommended for approval by the local officer at Manchester’s Planning and Highways Committee earlier this week after a consultation report highlighted the track’s decline in revenues and footfall in recent years.Mark Bird, Managing Director of the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB), explained that the closure of the UK’s first purpose-built greyhound racing track would be a ‘massive loss for the sport’.He said: “It’s the only track in the North West of the country, the nearest tracks to that in the North West would possible Sheffield or even Shawfield in Scotland. The loss of a track in a big area such as that would be a massive loss for the sport, and also for the wider communities of people in and around Manchester and Liverpool too.”While the track’s future hangs in the balance, an online petition by the Save Belle Vue Stadium Action Group has continued to gain traction, having received circa 13,000 signatures in favour of saving the track.The report submitted to the Planning Committee ahead of today’s meeting revealed: “A detailed assessment has been made in respect of the harmful aspects of the material considerations in this case, mainly the loss of the existing local non-statutory heritage site, the loss of employment opportunities at the existing site and the potential highway impacts from additional congestion created by the proposed residential development.“However, on balance, this level of harm is considered to be outweighed by the benefits the proposed development would bring, in relation to the provision of good quality affordable residential accommodation, an improvement to the overall appearance of the site, the betterment to the ecological value of the site, and the reduction in the noise currently generated by the existing uses to the benefit of existing residents living around the site.“Therefore, although it is acknowledged that the proposed development would result in some harm, this harm does not outweigh the overall benefits of the proposals and the determination of the planning application in accordance with the up-to-date Development Plan.”Bird pointed out that in order to continue engaging with the local communities, and to reverse the decline in footfall, greyhound racing as a sport must reconsider the way that media rights deals are structured and shift the focus towards the entertainment side of racing.He continued: “Because of the way that media rights around greyhound racing have fashioned themselves over the last couple of years, there is less footfall across all of the tracks in the UK. So there are 21 tracks in England and Scotland, and it is something that we as the regulator of the sport are looking at in terms of how we can get more footfall into stadiums.“While most of the stadiums have things like restaurants, but it’s trying to draw that younger generation to the tracks and to get them enthused about the sport which is one of the biggest challenges. That is what we hope to achieve in the next couple of years.”Bird emphasised the social nature of the sport: “Most dog racing in the evening is between 6:30 and 10:30, and it is as much about the social aspects of going to the racing as it is about the actual races. If you are going to go dog racing, you’re more than likely going to take your friends and family with you, and the races form a part of that social event.“For us, it is then about making racing more attractive to a younger subset of people – part of that is making dog racing a form of entertainment, it’s what the dogs want to do, and importantly that the dogs are being looked after due to our high welfare standards. It’s also making racing about the experience that you have while at the track as well. Of all the tracks, Belle Vue draws a huge audience on a Saturday night and always has done.“When most people go dog racing, they will at least back one dog, but really it’s about making the dogs the star of the show. If you can make the dogs into the ‘superstars’, people will get behind that.” Submit SIS greyhound service returns to pre-lockdown levels June 25, 2020last_img read more
