Protestors criticise Kagame at Said Business School

first_img“We prize open discussion and in line with the University’s Freedom of Speech policy we have not sought to prevent the students from extending this invitation. President Kagame’s presence in the Saïd Business School does not imply any endorsement by the School or the University of his views or actions. We are aware that President Kagame is considered by some to be a controversial figure and there will be the opportunity for those present to challenge him as appropriate.”Cusimano has previously told Cherwell, “I’m organizing the campaign not because I oppose Mr. Kagame’s visit; I think that it could have provided a platform for an excellent discussion if framed appropriately. I started the campaign because the event was not only happening without any apparent critical discussion, but was lauding him at a timewhen the extent of his government’s abuses are becoming ever more apparent.”President Kagame visited to give the keynote speech the 5th Annual Oxford Africa Business Conference. Conference attendees arriving at the business school Saturday morning were met by a group of a dozen protesters wielding signs stating, “Paul Kagame = War Criminal / Stop His Impunity;” “Kagame a Criminal in Power Rwandans Need: Justice, Democracy, Free Expression;” and “Peace in Congo.”[mm-hide-text]%%IMG%%7565%%[/mm-hide-text]The protestors also distributed literature claiming “Kagame has more blood on his hands that Hitler: 6,000,000 Congolese 500,000 Rwandans.” The literature also blamed Kagame for the assassination of four former Rwandan presidents. At noon, when the hundreds of conference attendees converged for lunch in the foyer, which has a full glass façade facing south onto Park End street, protestors, whose numbers reached around forty, launched raw eggs, water bottles and other debris at the glass window.Conference attendees responded mostly with laughter, as over a dozen Oxford University security guards and Oxford City police, two of whom were on horseback, enforced a fifteen metre barrier between the protesters and main façade.President Kagame and his entourage entered the business school through the rear in order to avoid the protestors. Shortly after one o’clock he spoke in the Nelson Mandela Lecture Theatre on the catalysts behind sub-Saharan African economic growth, before answering a series of questions from Tufan, the Dean, and audience members.Tufan initially praised Kagame’s economic policies, before launching into a critique of his human rights record phrased in the form of diplomatically-worded open-ended questions. Kagame responded that these critiques were predicated on incorrect facts, and that most of his critics were foreign, whereas an overwhelming majority of Rwandans approve of him. According to Amnesty International, “opposition figures and journalists remain in danger of arbitrary and impartial prosecution” and Freedom House has said that Rwanda is “not free”.Yet Kagame’s regime has been praised by some commentators, with Bill Clinton describing him as “one of the greatest leaders of our time.” Rwanda was the second country which wasn’t associated with the British Empire to join the Commonwealth in 2009. Until last year, the UK contributed £21m in development aid to Rwanda annually, and Tony Blair remains an unpaid government advisor. [mm-hide-text]%%IMG%%7564%%[/mm-hide-text] Professor Peter Tufano, Peter Moores Dean at Saïd Business School, told Cherwell before the protest, “The Oxford Africa Business Conference is a student-led event, held by the Oxford Business Network for Africa, a student organisation.  “Inviting Mr. Kagame to accept an award suggests that the Oxford Business Network for Africa, the Saïd Business School, and the University of Oxford condone Mr. Kagame’s actions, and sends the wrong message about the University’s commitment to peace, development, and human rights”, it said.center_img Salvator Cusimano, a postgraduate student at St Antony’s College, launched a petition against the visit. The letter, which has been signed by tutors including the founder of Oxford’s Refugee Studies Centre, states that Kagame should not be invited due to his allegedly undemocratic record. Protestors marred the visit of Rwandan President  Paul Kagame to Said Business School on Saturday, hurling dozens of eggs and other debris at the front of the business school in order to inveigh against what they claimed was Kagame’s record of genocide and corruption.At his speech inside the school, Kagame was questioned by business school Dean Peter Tufan on his human rights record, among other issues.Kagame visited Oxford to receive the “the inaugural Distinction of Honor for African Growth Award”, an award organised by students at the school. Having been President since 2000, he was central to the reconstruction of Rwanda after the 1994 genocide. However, critics argue that his regime has presided over human rights abuses.last_img read more

Confederations Cup Host Cities Receive New Security Equipment

first_imgBy Dialogo June 19, 2013 The six host cities of the Confederations Cup – Brasília (capital city), Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais state), Fortaleza (Ceará state), Recife (Pernambuco), Rio de Janeiro (Rio de Janeiro), and Salvador (Bahia) – received important reinforcement for the security infrastructure built for the soccer competition. President Dilma Rousseff and Minister of Defense Celso Amorim, participated in the event in Brasília and Belo Horizonte, respectively. From this structure, which is setup in a temporary location, there is monitoring of images from the cameras installed in the stadiums, as well as the route that the teams will take from the hotel to the game, and the arrival and departure flights. The new equipment has been customized with communication systems, video monitoring, and event management systems, such as computers, Wi-Fi hot spots, telephones, and radio devices. There can hold up to 16 working professionalsinside. Before interacting with the president via video, Amorim, Anastasia, and Lacerda saw some of the equipment at the capital of Minas Gerais, also available at the other host cities, and they were updated on their functionality. The arsenal includes a less lethal anti-bomb and weaponry kit, aerial imagery, mobile launchers and observational platforms. In Brasília, Dilma Rousseff said that the delivery of the CICCM is a sign that “we will indeed achieve the integration of all public security agencies in our country.” In Belo Horizonte, Minister of Defense Celso Amorim, told the President through video conference,that there is “perfect understanding” between these institutions, including the Armed Forces. In Belo Horizonte, the delivery was made in the outer area of the Tiradentes Palace –headquarters of Minas Gerais government. Amorim watched the video conference joined by the governor of the state of Minas Gerais, Antonio Anastasia, and the mayor of Belo Horizonte, Marcio Lacerda. According to Minister Amorim, “this demonstrates that Brazil is capable of taking joint actions whenever there is a large event, where the image of our country is being displayed.” center_img Next to President Dilma, Minister of Justice José Eduardo Cardozo, recalled the joint $825.4 million investment made on technology by his ministry and the Ministry of Defense. He explained that all police cars and equipment would remain at the service of the population, “to combat crime and organized crime, including on the borders.” The Navy, Army, and Air Force may work in the centers, if deployed. In addition to a contingent force that is ready to take action whenever a situation surpasses the operational capability of the public security agencies, the Defense takes action in ten pivots, including airspace control, counter terrorism, and cyber defense. Belo Horizonte and Rio each received three mobile controlled police cars. Brasília, Fortaleza, Recife, and Salvador received two each. The device works in the same manner as the fixed command centers, installed in the host cities, but with the advantage that it may be transported to areas with a large concentration of people. Later, the defense minister visited the Command and Control Integrated Centers, currently working in the capital of Minas Gerais, where professionals from many security agencies monitor the soccer teams that will play in the city. On June 13 the Mobile Command and Control Integrated Centers (CICCM) – trucks that will work as advanced stations for the joint work of security agents mobilized for the event, were delivered during a ceremony broadcast simultaneously to all capitals, to increase the response capability to incidents or security threats. The Ministry of Defense also announced that the host cities have 20,900 soldiers, 56,300 public security agents and 600 Brazilian Intelligence Agency professionals.last_img read more

International pressure on Maduro must continue until the Venezuelan people can reclaim their democracy,” Pompeo said.Pompeo’s statements came on the same day that the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, led by Michelle Bachelet, reported that criminal organizations that exploit, beat, and even murder workers are controlling most gold, diamond, and bauxite mines in the Orinoco Mining Arc region of Venezuela.Bachelet’s office said that the military and security forces of Venezuela’s disputed government are not preventing these crimes and have participated in acts of violence against miners. It also urged Maduro to “take immediate action” to stop labor and sexual exploitation, child labor, and human trafficking crimes described in the report published on July 15.last_img read more

Trump threatens to ‘close down’ social media after tweets tagged

first_imgThere is no evidence that attempts are being made to rig the election, and under the tweets, Twitter posted a link which read: “Get the facts about mail-in ballots.” For years, Twitter has been accused of ignoring the president’s violation of platform rules with his daily, often hourly barrages of personal insults and inaccurate information sent to more than 80 million followers.But Twitter’s slap on the wrist was enough to drive Trump into an early morning tirade — on Twitter — in which he claimed that the political right in the United States is being censored.”Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen,” he said. Election politics Kate Ruane, at the American Civil Liberties Union, said that Trump has no power to regulate Twitter.The constitution “clearly prohibits the president from taking any action to stop Twitter from pointing out his blatant lies about voting by mail,” she said.And for all his protests, Trump is a political giant on social media.His campaign takes pride in its enormous presence on Facebook, Twitter and other platforms that are tied into an unprecedented level of funding and data collection.By contrast, his Democratic election opponent, Joe Biden, has only 5.5 million Twitter followers.Social media suits Trump’s unorthodox communications style and his penchant for conspiracy theories, rumors and playground-style insults.Before being elected in 2016, Trump built his political brand by supporting the “birther” lie that Barack Obama, America’s first black president, was not born in the United States and therefore was not eligible to be president.Now that he faces Biden, Obama’s vice president, Trump is again using Twitter to attack the popular Obama. Trump’s murky claim that the Democrat was part of a “coup” attempt during the early days of his administration has a Twitter hashtag —  #ObamaGate — that the president uses regularly.The claim that Twitter is biased against conservatives fits the White House narrative that the billionaire president is still an outsider politician running against the elite.On Fox News, the powerful television network that openly supports Trump, contributor Lisa Boothe said the Democrats’ goal was to “shut down his unfiltered access to 80.3 million Americans.”The row is also a useful smokescreen when Biden is homing in on widespread dissatisfaction with Trump’s handling of the pandemic, which has left more than 100,000 Americans dead. Polls consistently show Biden in a strong position, despite barely having left his home during weeks of social distancing measures — and his relatively meager social media presence. US President Donald Trump threatened Wednesday to shutter social media platforms after Twitter for the first time acted against his false tweets, prompting the enraged Republican to double down on unsubstantiated claims and conspiracy theories.Trump will sign an executive order “pertaining to social media” on Thursday, aides to the president said, without offering more detail about its contents.Twitter tagged two of his tweets in which he claimed that more mail-in voting would lead to what he called a “Rigged Election” this November. Topics :center_img He plunged right back into his narrative that an increase in mail-in ballots — seen in some states as vital for allowing people to avoid crowds during the COVID-19 pandemic — will undermine the election.”It would be a free for all on cheating, forgery and the theft of Ballots,” wrote Trump, whose reelection campaign has been knocked off track by the coronavirus crisis.His torrent of angry tweets earned a top-10 trending hashtag: #TrumpMeltdown. Pet conspiracy theoryAn unrepentant Trump also resumed spreading a conspiracy theory about a prominent television critic, Joe Scarborough, whom the president is trolling with accusations that he murdered a woman in 2001.”Psycho Joe Scarborough is rattled, not only by his bad ratings but all of the things and facts that are coming out on the internet about opening a Cold Case,” Trump tweeted.There has never been any evidence that Scarborough, a host on MSNBC, had anything to do with the death of Lori Klausutis, who was a staffer in his office when he was a Republican congressman.Investigators determined that she died after hitting her head during a fall, triggered by an abnormal heart rhythm.However, the rumor has been pushed for years and Trump is its latest and most prominent promoter, refusing to stop even after Klausutis’ widower made an impassioned appeal for Twitter to halt the “vicious lie.”Twitter said in a statement that it was “deeply sorry” for the family’s pain, but did not take any action.last_img read more

Our readiness and speed are being tested,” he said.He also addressed the need for fundamental reforms in the health sector by strengthening the capacity of human resources and developing hospitals, health centers, as well as the medicine and medical equipment industry.“Resilience and capacity of our health service must be improved on a massive scale,” he said.During the address, Jokowi also expressed his appreciation to medical and health workers, as well as to community leaders, volunteers, journalists, national security personnel and civil servants. President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has called on people to support development amid the health and economic crisis.“In 25 years we will usher in 100 years of independence as we become the Indonesia we aspire to be,” Jokowi said in his state of the nation address on Friday during the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) annual session at the House of Representatives compound in Jakarta, held to commemorate Indonesia’s 75th Independence Day, which falls on Monday.Wearing traditional Sabu clothing from East Nusa Tenggara, he said the crisis could help push major transformation through the implementation of grand strategies and the resolution of fundamental problems.  “Our current goal is not only to escape the pandemic but also to get through the crisis. We are taking measures to take a big leap by making the most of out of the ongoing crisis,” Jokowi said in his state of the nation address.He said this period should be used to help the “catch up”.Jokowi compared the economic crisis to a computer crash, where many countries had to face stagnation but had the chance to restart their systems.“All countries must undergo a brief shutdown, restart and reboot,” he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more
