RSF joins letter to St Louis Mayor urging inquiry into police conduct towards journalists

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders (RSF) signed the following joint letter to the St Louis Mayor’s office urging an investigation into police conduct towards journalists covering protests in the city over the past two months. Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Organisation United StatesAmericas Condemning abuses Judicial harassment WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en June 7, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Follow the news on United States News News News United StatesAmericas Condemning abuses Judicial harassment Receive email alerts October 25, 2017 RSF joins letter to St Louis Mayor urging inquiry into police conduct towards journalists Honorable Lyda KrewsonMayor for the City of St. LouisSt. Louis City Hall – Room 2001200 Market StreetSt. Louis, Missouri 63103Via email: [email protected] 24, 2017Dear Mayor Lyda Krewson,We at the Committee to Protect Journalists, an independent press freedom advocacy group, along with the organizations listed below, write to express our concern about police conduct towards reporters covering protests in St. Louis in recent weeks.We were pleased to see that you pledged a full and fair investigation into civilian complaints about police conduct during the protests, which erupted in mid-September over the acquittal of a former St. Louis police officer who shot a black man. We applaud your calls for an independent investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. As you coordinate this investigation with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and the Civilian Oversight Board, we urge you to include a thorough consideration of the impact of law enforcement actions on freedom of the press.At least 10 journalists have been arrested while covering the protests, according to the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker, a database of press freedom incidents in the United States created with the support of 30 free expression and media organizations. Journalists have reported to the tracker that they were pepper-sprayed, cursed at, mocked, and treated with excessive force by police. Journalists who identified themselves and showed press credentials were arrested nonetheless.Police arrested Jon Ziegler, an independent livestreamer, on two occasions. On September 17, police officers pepper-sprayed him in the face and pushed his head to the ground before arresting him, Ziegler told press freedom groups. He also alleged that police mocked his video reporting, calling him a “superstar.” Ziegler was arrested again on October 3.At least four other journalists–independent documentary filmmakers Drew Burbridge and Jennifer Burbridge, St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Mike Faulk, and Getty Images photographer Scott Olson– were arrested and taken into custody on September 17. At least five journalists–Ty Bayliss and Jordan Chariton of The Young Turks, Al Neal from People’s World, and independent journalists Aminah Ali and Daniel Shular–were arrested on October 3. Shular was detained for 18 hours even though he displayed accreditation, did not hear an order to disperse, and was never told he was under arrest or read a Miranda warning, according to his lawyer.At least six journalists reported to the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker that police used excessive force at the scene. Faulk alleges that police officers knocked him to the ground and pepper-sprayed him in the face; one officer used his foot to push Faulk’s head to the pavement, according to a letter Faulk’s attorney sent to your office. Drew Burbridge has filed a lawsuit alleging that police beat him and repeatedly pepper sprayed him in the face. At least two journalists–Fusion videographer Chris Burke and University of Missouri student journalist Davis Winborne–allege that police pepper sprayed protesters and journalists indiscriminately.All of the journalists arrested or assaulted were doing their job–one that often brings them to the scene of protests and law enforcement operations for the vital role of documenting these events for the public.Press freedom groups have contacted the City Counselor’s Office to urge prosecutors not to go forward in pressing charges. The office told CPJ that the charges are “under advisement” and that prosecutors have a year to decide whether to proceed.This is not the first time that journalists have faced arrest and assault in the greater St. Louis area. According to the Freedom of the Press Foundation, around two dozen reporters were arrested in protests in Ferguson, Missouri in the fall of 2014. While these arrests fell outside city bounds, this combined legacy is a troubling signpost for journalists’ safety in the St. Louis area. It is more important than ever that the city take concrete steps to show its commitment to press freedom.Journalists should not have to fear for their physical well-being at the hands of law enforcement when they cover newsworthy events. We ask you to conduct a thorough examination of cases in which reporters were assaulted or arrested and discipline individual officers found to have behaved unacceptably. We hope the investigation will also spur proactive steps, such as increased training for police officers and clear, enforced policies on how to deal with the press during protests.Sincerely,Alexandra EllerbeckNorth America Program CoordinatorCommittee to Protect JournalistsAkili-Casundria RamsessExecutive DirectorNational Press Photographers AssociationAlfredo CarbajalPresidentAmerican Society of News EditorsBobby MagillPresidentSociety of Environmental JournalistsBernard C.

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago While many analysts expected economic growth to be weak in the first quarter, no one expected it to be as weak as it actually was.The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) “advance” estimate for the gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate in Q1 reported a rate of 0.5 percent for the quarter. And while Q1 has had its problems in recent years—the GDP grew at only 0.7 percent for the first quarter of 2015, then shot up to 3.9 percent for Q2—none were expecting it to be that low.GDP growth was 1.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015.According to the BEA, the slow Q1 GDP growth reflected a larger decrease in nonresidential fixed investment, a deceleration in personal consumption expenditures (PCEs), a downturn in federal government spending, an upturn in reports, and larger decreases in primary inventory investment. These factors were partially offset by an upturn in local government spending and an acceleration in residential fixed investment, according to the BEA.“Our forecast was about 0.7 growth and it came in at 0.5,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “People’s expectations had adjusted toward that. The good news in there was that housing actually increased its contribution, and that’s consistent with our forecast. The thing I think people continue to be disappointed with is the consumption numbers and the business fixed investment numbers were quite weak. That’s actually not surprising, given that corporate profits have fallen over the last several months, and companies typically don’t invest when profits are falling.”Duncan added that is a risk component of the economic picture going forward, there is a “pretty high correlation between a decline in profits and a recession, even though most people don’t have that in their forecast at the moment.”With the GDP growth that low, is a recession in the cards for the near term? Capital Economics said the likelihood is low.“Following on from the 1.4 percent gain in the final quarter of last year, (growth of less than 1 percent) suggests the U.S. economy lost more momentum and could be headed for a full-blown downturn,” Capital Economics said in a recent report. “The risk of a recession this year is still relatively low, however, particularly as the improvement in the activity surveys points to a rebound in GDP growth soon.”There will be two more estimates for Q1 GDP growth; one will be released in late May and one in late June.

TUC calls for asthma law

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article The TUC urges the Government to introduce legislation to force firms toaddress causes of work-related asthmaUp to 20 people a day are contracting asthma because of conditions in theirworkplaces, the TUC has warned. Employers are failing to control the causes of work-related asthma, and theTUC is urging the Government to introduce a legally binding Approved Code ofPractice to set out in detail what employers must do to prevent the spread ofthe disease. The survey of nearly a thousand union safety reps in workplaces whereasthma-causing substances are used regularly, showed that few employers werecarrying out all of their general legal obligations, said the TUC. It found that only 41 per cent of firms were carrying out risk assessments,and only some 28 per cent were monitoring workers’ health. Only 26 per cent provided breathing equipment, while 23 per cent providedtraining and 22 per cent ventilation. Some 8 per cent said their company had agreed to substitute dangeroussubstances with less harmful ones, while 6 per cent had said they would enclosethe process exposing the worker to asthma-causing substances. Under existing legislation, employers are required to make substitution thefirst step they take. Those workers likely to be exposed ranged from those in manufacturing tocarpenters, painters, bakers and nurses. The TUC estimates some 7,000 people ayear develop asthma as a result of their work. TUC senior policy officer Owen Tudor said: “No-one needs to developasthma at work. People only get one set of lungs, and employers have shown thatguidance and general rules aren’t enough. We need a specific legal code onasthma to breathe some life back into workers’ lung safety.” TUC calls for asthma lawOn 1 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

PLUS, you’ll receive our exclusive Rider Fitness digital edition with 15 exercises for more effective riding. Horse Sport Enews SIGN UP It was a winning Friday afternoon for Ireland’s Bertram Allen who piloted the talented nine-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Pacino Amiro to a top finish on Friday, January 21, in the $37,000 Adequan® WEF Challenge Cup Round 2 CSI3* at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).There’s plenty of international show jumping still to come this week on the Derby Field at Equestrian Village at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center as part of CSI3* competition. Saturday features the Saturday’s $37,000 CaptiveOne Advisors 1.50m Jumper Classic and $10,000 Hermès U25 Welcome, and the action doesn’t slow down Sunday with the $137,000 Restylane Grand Prix CSI3* followed by the $25,000 Hermès U25 Grand Prix. All feature classes will be available to watch for free on the livestream.Friday’s class had a starting field of 78 entries contest the track set by course designer Oscar Soberon (USA) with a total of 12 electing to return for the jump-off. In the second round, many combinations opted to do nine strides to the final fence on course, but Allen and the gelding owned by Aiden McGregory moved swiftly in eight strides to fly over the final oxer and cross the finish line in 39.72 seconds.“I thought it was a good, tough class, and it was quite a long track in the jump-off,” he said. “My guy is a little bit inexperienced; you could see that at the start of the jump-off but the more he went, the better he got. I could use his big stride in the big arena, so it worked well for me. He’s only nine so he’s only stepping up to this level but he’s a very genuine, kind horse that’s always trying do the right thing.”U.S. rider Paris Sellon put forth a clear effort over the shortened track aboard the 12-year-old Oldenburg mare Anna Jo for Willow Grace Farm, finishing just over a second off the lead in a time of 40.77 seconds. With the first double clear effort of the day, Enrique Gonzalez (MEX) and his own 14-year-old mare Chacna held on for a third-place finish, stopping the timers at 42.40 seconds.Like Thursday’s 1.45m winner Sydney Shulman, Allen had only great things to say about the quality of the footing and opportunity to jump on the derby field.“The field is fantastic. I love it,” he said. “The ground and everything is really, really good and the horses love it. It’s beautiful. In two weeks, we’re back out here, so I’m going to skip next week just to make sure I can jump as much as I can on the grass. I think it’s brilliant.”Allen will continue to campaign at WEF for the remainder of the winter circuit with his focus on the talented young gelding to continue to develop in international competition.“Obviously there’s not much happening in Europe, so we said we’d come over here again,” he said. “We were here last year, and we’re just going to take it week by week. Pacino Amiro is probably going to be my best horse, so I’ll just try to develop him up to the CSI5* shows hopefully.”Final Results: $37,000 Adequan® WEF Challenge Cup Round 21.
