The Armed Forces took the side of the millions of Egyptians who demonstrated in the streets since the 30th of June against President Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Armed Forces responded to the invitation of the people to intervene and force the President to step down at the request of the people of Egypt. Field Marshall Abdel Fattah el-SiSi invited His Holiness Pope Tawadros II and The Grand Imam of Egypt Dr. Ahmed el-Tayyib, and other political leaders, to discuss the roadmap for the future of Egypt. After this meeting, it was announced that the head of the constitutional court will be an interim leader of the nation. The current controversial constitu-tion is now suspended. The new government will involve capable people from different backgrounds.As soon as Field Marshall Abdel Fattah el-Sisi announced this, millions of Egyptians on the streets went around rejoicing, singing, dancing, and making a lot of fireworks. I have never seen Egyptians rejoicing in such a way! They deserve this joy as they insisted to write their own history!Since the Muslim Brotherhood ruled the country a year ago, we Egyptians experienced divisions, exclusions, sectarian clashes, fanaticism, a decrease in tourism, and a bad economy.This is an answer to the prayers of so many people from around the world who were praying for our beloved country Egypt. Please continue to pray for protection from violent reaction of the Islamists which already has started. Pray also for unity and reconciliation after more than 1 year of divisions.May the Lord bless you!The Most Rev.

And we look away. Especially when we want a peaceful and satisfying Christmas, unsullied by grim reality.We all have a deep longing to be satisfied therefore intuitively we go for security, for the opportunity to focus inwards for a moment, and keep the world at bay. But satisfaction is not met by another gift or some more fine food, and it’s not met by another gathering or technological experience. For security we need true life, glorious life , the life of God welling up and overflowing in glory.That’s what those shepherds found, glory. They saw glory in the angels in the sky and they found glory in the baby in the manger, and they returned to their cold hillside full of the glory of God. This was their encounter with the eternal, with the touch of God, the recognition of more than we can see or feel, and the certainty of the eternal. The angels sing of glory. God’s glory is utterly tied up with this child. God has no glory apart from Jesus, and Jesus is the source of all that is truly glorious in life.Glory comes to these shepherds and shines around them. They were economically poor, of no standing in the community and yet glory shines on them. Throughout the bible glory shines in places and on people where it is least expected. God reveals glory to those from whom many turn away. Today, through the birth of Christ, God turns to us as he did towards the shepherds. We may not turn away, but so often Jesus becomes part of the Christmas trimings. To pass by the manger in which is foundGod’s glory is to travel towards uncertainty.The end of 2016 finds us all in a different kind of world, one less predictable and certain, which feels more awash with fear and division. Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney said three weeks ago, “Despite immense progress many citizens in advanced economies are facing heightened uncertainty… rather than a new golden era, globalisation is associated with low wages, insecure employment, stateless corporation and striking inequalities.” That uncertainty of our world, our feelings tells us that our values are in the wrong place. I learned last week of a family in one of our cities who lowered their child in a supermarket dustbin to scavenge for food before fishing him out. What will that family eat today?  Economic progress, technological progress, communication progress hasn’t resulted in economic justice. It hasn’t delivered glory for usIt is amongst those on the edge, those ignored, and amongst persecuted believers that I have most clearly seen the glory of God this year, a glory that chases away the fear of terror, the power of death, and theeconomies of injustice, and presents a path to a more just, more Christ-like world.Let me tell you about a bomb injured woman in Pakistan that Caroline and I met six weeks ago, bereft of her youngest child in the blast that had injured her, who said, “One thing we know, Jesus really is the good Shepherd.” And a lonely elderly woman in London, and a trafficked teenager in Watford both of whom spoke recently at a Carol service at Lambeth Palace: they have seen the glory of God in Jesus and he has brought powerful transformation to their lives. People on the edge.How then do WE find glory? The only place and person who can bring glory to us is the child of Bethlehem who became the victim on the cross.Time and again in his story, Luke tells us it is in this setting that there is glory, glory, glory. For God has come among his people to bring Salvation. Gloryrevealed – because in receiving this gift we receive true life. Glory revealed– because in coming to him our deepest longings and greatest needs are met. Glory revealed – because the birth of this child heralds peace on earth. Here and here alone there is true hope, utter certainty. For One has come who rules by love not by force, who commands forgiveness not revenge, who makes the last first and the first last, who becomes the victim of violence and hatred in achieving peace. This baby is a great challenge to every power and authority; from his first hours when Herod acts in murderous rage to his last hour when the Roman ruler sentences him to death those with authority seek to eliminate the challenge of Jesus. Jesus will never be co-opted to any office or power.To participate in this glory we must respond to this child and respond to those to whom this child came. We cannot pray that we might be given our daily bread, while not caring that there are those today who will have no bread. In our own country whilst many will go to sleep tonight too full, there are also many who will go to sleep hungry. In faithfulness to the glory of the Baby in the manger we are all called to show the glory of God with generous hearts and overflowing love, yet we feel overwhelmed with a world in which every need is brought to our attention by the power of modern systems. What God calls for from us is not a universal answer but a simple obedience by each of us. Like the shepherds none of us can do much, but the angel does not say to them “solve the problems of war torn Palestine under the Romans”, but “go to Bethlehem”. Our response to the child in the manger is not to solve the problems of the world, but to do what we can do, with our resources, in our time, at the age and with the capacity we have. That capacity is liberated when it is centred on Jesus. In faithfulness to the glory of the Baby in the manger we are all called to respond to this child with unlimited devotion, in worship and awe. Then, whoever, wherever we are, we see the glory of God, perhaps at first a faint glow and distant song, but at the end of all things light beyond imagining and the chant of all the angels. We begin a journey which ends as part of that glory in which there is one glorious vision, one eternal certainty, one great assembly in glorious joy.

Slowing down traffic with curiously hovering red boxes tickling the traditional sensibilities of an urban tree-lined neighborhood, Charlotte’s latest architectural triumph of contemporary design is breaking all conventions. Save this picture!© Armando BellmasVia a modern climbing library that immediately evokes adventure, stylish comfort, and the intimacy of reading, Dialect Design, a design + build firm, has created an ingenious and refreshingly unexpected space. The Schönberg residence second story addition bears the mark of all things classically Dialect – a sophisticated use of color that effortlessly runs from the coolly subdued to the richly dramatic; an expert and unconventional approach to materials and construction; and an eye for detail so subtle the soul of the design is upon you before you know it. Save this picture!© Armando BellmasUpon entering the library, “finesse” and “order” make a great first impression. The “boxes within boxes” construction of recessed shelves reveals shadow lines that seemingly float the shelves inside the library walls. This simultaneous directional and uncluttered use of reveals is beautifully intended. Throughout the space, as steel, concrete, glass, aluminum, acrylic, fabric, and wood engage, their reveals provide a sense of separation, definition, movement, and harmony that yearns to be lived in. From the walls to the floors, doors, and windows, the entire renovation is a study in clean functionality, flush meetings, and visual ease. Additionally, the ordered elegance of the library’s interior shelves is echoed to dramatic effect with the protruding iconic red boxes that stop traffic and define the space’s exterior. Save this picture!© Armando BellmasPinwheeling around the library are three exceptionally appointed bedrooms and the swankiest shared bath three siblings could wish for. The inhabitants are Caroline and Matthias Schönberg’s 4, 7, and 11 year-old daughters. With its translucent acrylic counter, deeply red stained cabinetry, ubiquitously running glass and ceramic tile, and the perfect touches of whimsy, the bath is a fete of serious design and young lady appropriateness. Whether the light rich second floor is filled with the blush of day or night sky it is clear these young ladies provide a vibrancy and energy even the space’s solar paneled roof can’t match. Dialect has deftly created a sophisticated space that encourages the electrifying resonance of children while inspiring adults to inhabit it as well. According to Caroline Schönberg, it’s no wonder that upon climbing the library’s heights everyone is compelled to tell their best tree house stories. Save this picture!© Armando BellmasVisionary, thoughtful, and collaborative, the Schönberg project is an example of successful innovation. Dialect’s inclusiveness with the Schönbergs created an environment where the renovation inspired trust and invigorated daily life without disrupting it. In service of achieving something unique and fresh, every tradesperson and sub-contractor rose to the challenge of rethinking the conventions of their expertise. Save this picture!© Armando BellmasThe sheer presence of the climbing library has enriched residential life for the Schönbergs. The family’s emotional center has shifted to the environs of the library while the treasures of their international lives have an ideal place to reside. As the addition’s influence finds its way into other parts of the home, an open steel screen marries the kitchen to the library’s ascent; a glassy red veined concrete floor sets a new standard for a sleekly finished garage; the outdoor interplay of Dialect’s iconic red boxes, rich grey surfaces, directional reveals, flat roof and visually seamless aluminum gutter harmonizes beautifully with the rest of the house and the outdoors. Save this picture!© Armando BellmasThe outdoors is used to great effect as perforated aluminum sunshades overlook the outside back terrace. The sunshades expertly bring the outside in by casting playful shadow patterns on the bamboo floors of an enviably lush and voluminous interior hallway. The front of the house welcomes visitors with a bold and refreshing design perspective. Completely flush in its niche and confidently asymmetrical, a black anodized steel door sporting the luster of glass detailing and a perfectly juicy red accent is a stunning example of Dialect’s proven ingenuity with doors.Save this picture!SketchProject gallerySee allShow lessMonsoons in Pakistan + Flood Control MethodsArticlesLompreta Nolte Arquitetos Proposal for the Environment Museum Annex Competition, Rio…ArticlesProject locationAddress:Charlotte, NC, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

Bolivarian Venezuela fights fascist attacks

first_imgMarch 9 rally in Caracas in defense Venezuela and against the U.S.-backed fascist gangs. Photo: www.nicolasmaduro.org.veU.S. imperialism has supported and encouraged fascist groupings opposed to the legitimate Venezuelan government of President Nicolás Maduro that are trying to topple the Bolivarian Revolution with violent demonstrations, starting Feb. 12. These are aimed not only at Venezuela but at progressive developments in the entire Latin American and Caribbean region. This assault has instead served to unite all the forces backing the Bolivarian Revolution.It is true, as some have said, that Venezuela is divided. It is divided by the class struggle.Anyone watching CNN or other commercial media would think that these violent actions are happening all over Venezuela. That is false. Of the 335 municipalities in the country, only nine now have these fascist-like violent acts organized by youth from the ruling class. They take hold only in the wealthy sectors, which itself shows the strength of the popular pro-government neighborhoods. The rich youth promoting the attacks would not even dare go to the poor barrios.While the number of sites and people participating in the anti-popular attacks has decreased, the aggression has grown, leaving at least 21 people dead. President Maduro has said that 50 people have also died because ambulances can’t drive through street barricades the fascists set up.This is the usual scenario: What starts as a supposedly “peaceful” demonstration becomes brutal as night falls. Fascist youth take over, hiding their faces behind masks. They set up “guarimbas,” roadblocks, to prevent any traffic flow. They hurl stones and Molotov bombs, set fires, throw garbage on the streets and use weapons with live ammunition.They string barbed wire that is invisible in the dark across streets. A worker riding a motorcycle was decapitated by one while driving home. Their target is any pro-government person, the National Guard and anyone who tries to remove the barricades. The victims can be anyone.The fascists are active where the local authorities, mayors and/or governors are from the opposition and order the local police not to stop them. The upper-class youth are instigated by right-wing leaders like Leopoldo López, who is now in jail. He and others publicly and through social media call for violence and a return to the past, when the oligarchy ruled and the majority in Venezuela lived in misery.The government has sent in the National Guard to prevent further unrest, but with strict orders not to shoot at protesters. The fascists, in turn, try to attack them while people from high-rise apartment buildings throw cans and bottles at them.It shows the hatred and racism of the people in these areas, who are mostly white, middle class and rich, against the National Guard, which is made up of poor Venezuelans, the majority of them people of color.In an effort to prevent widespread violence and a bloodbath instigated by imperialism, the government has initiated a Campaign for Peace, calling for disarming all groups, both for and against the Bolivarian process.Some in the progressive movement see the government tactic as a retreat by President Maduro from the task of deepening and defending the revolution and moving it toward a socialist path. While it certainly is a difficult tactic, the left forces in general have supported the approach while remaining vigilant, pledging to defend the revolution by any means necessary.‘Government in the streets’The government’s response to the fascist violence has been to mobilize the people in the streets. Maduro’s “gobierno en la calle” (government in the streets) is now both real and active. There are demonstrations supporting the government almost daily.These demonstrations have turned into “people’s assemblies,” where both the people and the government present proposals. There have been separate demonstrations by workers from PDVSA — the national oil company — and workers from other major industries, by the elderly, the youth, women, motorcycle riders (motorizados), peasants and Indigenous people.In addition, the government has called for a major National Conference on Peace with all the sectors. On Feb. 26, in order to initiate this effort, Maduro met with businesspeople, including the president of FEDECAMARAS — the Chamber of Commerce — which was an active participant in the April 2002 coup against then President Hugo Chávez. He also met with religious figures, governors, intellectuals, artists, sports figures and people in other sectors.Maduro delineated four key points needed to unite for peace: respect for the Constitution, dismantling the organized violent groups, defense of Venezuela from foreign intervention and organizing a National Peace Summit. The violent and right-wing Board for Democratic Unity did not attend the meetings.On the anniversary of Hugo Chávez’s death, March 5, an impressive civic-military parade took place in Caracas. It was a moving display of the popular forces determined to defend the Bolivarian Revolution. It stressed the idea of unity between the organized people and the armed forces, which are aligned to the process, in defense of the revolution.In case there was any doubt that the government is preparing to repel any foreign intervention, the parade proudly displayed new armaments, planes and tanks bought in recent years.U.S. imperialism keeps up the pressureWashington is continuing its insolent imperialist attempts at intervention. Just days before the anniversary of Chávez’s death, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bipartisan law against Venezuela, authored by none other than anti-Cuban right-winger Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry continue — without any evidence, as there is none — to accuse President Maduro of carrying out violent repression, while ignoring the criminal actions of the fascists, whom they call “peaceful protesters.”U.S. imperialism also recruited the Panamanian regime to force an intervention by the Organization of American States. As a result, Maduro broke all relations with Panama, expelling the ambassador.The imperialist ploy boomeranged. When the OAS voted 29-3 on March 7, it was a public slap in the face to U.S. imperialism. The OAS Permanent Council approved a Declaration on the Situation in Venezuela entitled “Solidarity and Support for Democratic Institutions, Dialogue and Peace in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.”Refusing to intervene, the OAS instead gave full support to the Bolivarian government and its efforts to bring peace.

first_imgA series of events in the Bay Area and around the U.S. have put the spotlight on U.S.-funded repression and killings in the Philippines that target progressive political organizations and unionists.The attacks began to escalate on Oct. 31 when police and military raided the offices of Gabriela, a women’s organization; the National Federation of Sugar Workers; and the anti-imperialist Bayan Muna, belonging to the leftist political party Makabayan, based in the Philippines. More than 57 activists, unionists and human rights defenders were arrested. Solidarity with progressive Filipino organizers at Oscar Grant Plaza Nov. 8.Then on Nov. 4, Rey Malaborbor, a former political prisoner, was murdered, and another activist, Honey Mae Suazo, disappeared. On Nov. 5, the offices of Bayan were raided in Manila, and leaders of Bayan, Manila Workers Unity and Kadamay, an organization of urban poor people, were arrested. In the U.S., a candlelight vigil of protest was held at Oscar Grant Plaza in Oakland on Nov. 8, led by PUSO (Philippines-US Solidarity Organization), BAYAN USA-Northern California, GABRIELA-Oakland and Anakbayan-East Bay. They rallied under the call, “Stand with the Human Rights Defenders of the Philippines.” Rhonda Ramiro of BAYAN stated: “The list of the atrocities runs really long. We are talking about air strikes and raids, arrests of union members, women’s organizers, human rights defenders, killings of  judges and journalists, and the disappearances of farmworkers.”Ramiro spoke in depth about the attacks on the many union, peasant and people’s movements in her country: “We are outraged by these attacks because they are a part of the Trump-backed Duterte regimes’s concerted campaign to end the successful organizing of workers, many of whom are, like us, struggling for a livable wage. The government is trying to repress Indigenous people who are just protecting their land that is being stolen by multinational corporate interests. Some of these corporations are right here, like Chevron, in our backyard [in the U.S.].” Ramiro and others at the rally linked the repressive attacks in the Philippines with the struggles in the Black and Brown communities of Oakland against police violence, for education and for housing. Other speakers called for “international solidarity” against the U.S.-funded Duterte regime. An international day to support Filipino unions, with demands to “stop trade union repression, unionizing is a right, free our unionists” was organized on Nov. 16. The Kilusang Mayo Uno (May First Labor Movement) of independent labor centers asked for union supporters around the world to use social media to send solidarity messages. The International Action Center and the International Workers’ Solidarity Network immediately responded to mobilize their social media networks. Demonstrations were held in Washington, D.C., and other parts of the country to demand that Filipino union members be released immediately. (iacenter.org)On IAC- and IWSN-related websites, workers were urged to “struggle against the repressive measures of governments and big and local corporations. Neoliberal policies that serve big corporations attack workers by pressing down wages and by depriving them of basic rights including the right to unionize. #StopWorkersRepression.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes

first_img IsraelPalestineMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses Armed conflictsViolence to go further IsraelPalestineMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses Armed conflictsViolence May 16, 2021 RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes Targeted Israeli airforce attacks have destroyed the premises of 23 Palestinian and international media outlets in the past week. The latest airstrikes destroyed the bureaux of the US news agency, the Associated Press, and the Qatari TV broadcaster Al Jazeera. According to the Israeli military, these attacks were justified because the “military intelligence” wing of Hamas, the Gaza Strip’s ruling Islamist movement, had equipment in these building.“Deliberately targeting media outlets constitutes a war crime,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “By intentionally destroying media outlets, the Israel Defence Forces are not only inflicting unacceptable material damage on news operations. They are also, more broadly, obstructing media coverage of a conflict that directly affects the civilian population. We call on the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor to determine whether these airstrikes constitute war crimes.”The first Israeli attack on media outlets occurred four days ago, after Hamas fired a series of rockets into Israel. In the early hours of 12 May, Israeli airstrikes destroyed the Al-Jawhara Tower, a 10-storey building in Gaza City that housed 14 media outlets including the Palestine Daily News newspaper and the pan-Arab TV channel Al-Araby.The next day, an Israeli airstrike destroyed Gaza City’s Al-Shorouk Tower, a 14-storey building that housed seven media outlets including the Al-Aqsa radio and TV broadcaster. The IDF said they were “striking Hamas weapons stores hidden inside civilian buildings in Gaza.”Israel is ranked 86th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2021 World Press Freedom Index.
