21 May 2007An independent human rights expert who reports to the United Nations Human Rights Council has called on United States authorities to promote and enforce nation-wide policies that protect the rights and welfare of migrants. “An over-reliance on, and delegation of authority to local level law enforcement may compromise the ability of the US Government to effectively address issues affecting migrants, and to comply with its human rights obligations under International Law,” Jorge Bustamante, Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants said in a preliminary statement, after visiting the country from 30 April to 17 May. He said his visit shed light on a range of concerns regarding the rights of migrants, including arbitrary detention, separation of families, substandard conditions of detention, procedural violations in criminal and administrative law proceedings, racial and ethnic discrimination, arbitrary and collective expulsions and violations of children’s and women’s rights. Mr. Bustamante expressed particular concern over the fact that there is no centralized system in the US to obtain information regarding those arrested by immigration officials or where individuals are detained. “Families may spend prolonged periods without information as to the whereabouts of detained relatives,” he said in his statement. “Transfers of individuals in custody also may occur without notice to families or attorneys and may result in detention in remote locations, far from families and access to legal support.” To remedy these problems, he suggested that the US ensure that domestic laws and immigration enforcement activities are consistent with its international obligations to protect the rights of migrant workers. He said those rights are spelled out in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), the Convention Against Torture and All Forms of Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CAT), the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). He also urged that the country sign and ratify the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families. While in the US, the Special Rapporteur travelled to the border areas in California and Arizona, witnessing firsthand the operations of the Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He also met with migrants in South Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, New York and Washington DC, and had the opportunity to speak with civil society representatives working on the human rights of migrants at various levels. In Arizona, Mr. Bustamante was able to visit the Florence Detention Center, but he was disappointed that his scheduled and approved visits to the Hutto Detention Center in Texas and the Monmouth Detention Center in New Jersey were cancelled with no explanation. read more

“This was unanimously agreed and since there was no action, the Members of the Northern Provincial Council, cutting across party lines, walked into the well of the Chamber and stood in protest opposite me immediately after the 30th Sessions started on 09.06.2015. I told them that I will pursue this matter with Your Excellency and the TNA leaders and requested them to go back and take their seats .They complied with it after expressing their views,” the NPC Chairman said in the letter to the President. Sivagnanam told the President in the letter that ignoring the request made earlier is purely a matter of breach of privilege and disrespect to the elected representatives of the people. The Northern Provincial Council (NPC) has written to President Maithripala Sirisena requesting the urgent transfer of the Government Agent of Vavuniya, out of the District.C.V.K. Sivagnanam, the Chairman of the NPC, in a letter to the President, notes that all of five Members of the Provincial Council from the Vavuniya District presented a copy of a letter addressed to the President signed by them and three Members of Parliament from the Vavuniya District at the sittings held in March and moved that the Council request the President to transfer the Government Agent Vavuniya, out of the District. He also noted that the issue has nothing to do with one community, because the NPC members who protested are from the Tamil, Muslim and Sinhala communities and so he urged the President to immediately transfer the Government Agent of Vavuniya out of that District.

President Leonid D. KuchmaSpeaking next, President Leonid D. Kuchma of Ukraine emphasized the major role the UN could play in a comprehensive strategy for conflict prevention. “In my opinion, peacekeeping operations with preventive mandate of the United Nations Security Council could become one of the key instruments of such a system,” he said. “There is also a need to further develop and improve the principles and mechanisms of application of international sanctions aimed at curbing the supply of weapons to zones of conflict.”President Kuchma also called for stronger action to prevent terrorism, including effective measures to counter the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, as well as UN reform. “Effective response to new challenges requires urgent actions in reforming the United Nations and, first of all, its Security Council,” he said. “I am confident that further delay in the long-overdue reforms can result in a serious crisis of confidence for the United Nations. We cannot let it happen. There can be no viable alternative to the United Nations as a singular global organization.” Video President Svetozar MarovicFor his part, President Svetozar Marovic of Serbia and Montenegro stressed the importance of the UN in the battle against terrorism and solving other conflicts. “We can defeat terrorism only if we all join forces. That is why multilateralism for us has no alternative and the United Nations is a guarantee for that. Both today and tomorrow,” he declared. Referring to the fighting between Albanians and Serbs that tore Kosovo apart four years ago, he said: “The activities of the United Nations in Kosovo demonstrate that with good intentions on all sides there is hope to create preconditions for dialogue, instead of hatred and conflicts, so that people discuss and resolve the problems instead of creating new ones. We are glad that one of the crucial issues to the stability of the entire region – the issue of Kosovo – is at a threshold of dialogue, as we have called for.”Referring to the fierce Balkan wars of the past decade, President Marovic said: “From our own recent experience we know a lot about victims and suffering. That is why we call for an end to violence in all parts of the world – in Baghdad and Iraq in Jerusalem and in the Middle East. We are convinced that the international community and the United Nations, primarily the Security Council will find a way to stabilization and life in peace and freedom for all people. The human race has only one world to live in.” Video President Joseph KabilaThe President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Joseph Kabila, joined the wider international community in reaffirming total condemnation of terrorism. Turning to the situation in his country, he briefly outlined the events of this past spring and summer when ethnic violence swept the resource-rich northeastern Ituri province and devastated the main town of Bunia. While the deployment of a multinational peacekeeping force had quelled the violence in Ituri, the fighting had left a gaping wound and the slightest slip could reignite the hostilities, he warned. South Kivu in particular required close monitoring as violence had recently flared there.Mr. Kabila said the DRC was pressing forward with its efforts to ensure reconciliation and reform, which would culminate in the holding of free and fair elections. He hoped the international community would provide assistance at all stages of the electoral process. DRC for its part was making strides toward ensuring economic and regional integration, as well as open and honest dialogue and reconciliation among all the people of the Great Lakes, he said. While his country was determined to promote good neighbourly relations and sharing to combat HIV/AIDS, the proliferation of small arms and anti-personnel mines, Mr. Kabila said he would reject interference and destabilizing forces. He called on neighbouring countries to respect his country’s sovereignty. Video President Abdoulaye WadeSenegalese President Abdoulaye Wade said the threat of terrorism required a collective response and his country believed that Africa should not be the “soft underbelly” in the fight. Senegal had demonstrated its commitment to the resolution of conflict in Africa and, by urging the parties in the Côte d’Ivoire conflict to commit to the French-brokered January peace accords, had proclaimed that the time for coups d’etat on the continent was past. Legitimate power should be acquired, conserved and transmitted only through elections, not through force of arms, he stressed.As Chair of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, he said Senegal continued to be concerned about the ongoing conflict in the Middle East where too much blood had been shed. President Wade stressed that negotiations on the basis of the Quartet’s Road Map must be resumed and that Israel must be warned that any attack on the physical integrity of President Yasser Arafat would bring incalculable consequences. On development, he said the problems of globalization made a new type of partnership necessary if the insidious cycle of poverty was to be broken. The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), on the basis of clear parameters, aimed at fostering peace, stability and good governance, he said. Video Prime Minister Anerood JugnauthFor his part, the Prime Minister of Mauritius Anerood Jugnauth said the attack on the UN compound in Baghdad underscored the urgent need for the major overhaul and reform of the world body. Calling on member States not to undermine the UN, he said as a small island, Mauritius was highly vulnerable to terrorist threats and it was only through international cooperation that it could effectively fight the war against terrorism. Addressing the situation in the Middle East, Mr. Jugnauth deplored the international community’s failure to find lasting solutions in the region. He said Yasser Arafat was an essential part of the solution and that any attempt to sideline him would be detrimental to any peace initiative. He also deplored the long running conflicts in Africa and called on the countries that manufacture and market the weapons “to ensure that Africa does not continue to be their killing fields.” Mr. Jugnauth also called on the Assembly to lend the necessary support to next year’s meeting to review the Barbados Programme of Action, which addresses a host of challenges faced by small island developing states. Video Prime Minister Saufatu SopoangaThe recent wave of terror attacks and the havoc they have created worldwide have instilled a sense of fear and uncertainty, Tuvalu’s Prime Minister, Saufatu Sopoanga, said. He said as a small island developing country, Tuvalu’s biggest fear is the resolve of developed countries to also address developmental and environmental issues so fundamental to lasting world peace and security. Mr. Sopoanga said the isolation and lack of infrastructure of the Pacific islands leaves them vulnerable to terrorism and threatens their security, “especially the security of our traditional and cultural practices upon which our very existence depends.”Mr. Sopoanga pointed out that as Tuvalu moves into the 21st century, it is challenged by the many changes that are taking place in the world, especially through globalization. The recent breakdown in discussions on international trade in Cancún, Mexico, clearly shows developing countries are no longer “willing to accept the rhetoric of those who want to impose a trade regime that tends to favour the wealthy and marginalize the poor,” he said. He stressed the genuine need to better recognize the special case of small island developing states, as their best efforts to escape the cycle of poverty and marginalization are doomed without the support of the international community, civil society, and the private sector. Video President Obiang Nguema MbasogoFor his part President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea lamented the global economic disparity and the loss of UN authority, and he called for the moral and political reform of the world body. “The efforts undertaken to establish a new international economic order ensuring global cooperation for the development of the planet have resulted in the division of the world into North and South, while cooperation and aid is offered under imposed political conditions,” he said. “We believe that globalization should necessarily provide for a programme of sustainable development for developing countries so that they can acquire a certain maturity that allows them to get some advantage from such integration.”Turning to UN reform, Mr. Nguema said: “At the same time, the United Nations is without authority because there is no democracy in its decision-making bodies, and its ability for humanitarian aid is limited by the proliferation of disasters caused by war and terrorism. In our opinion, lamentably, humanity is now dehumanized and the United Nations has lost its authority. Today it is our duty to assume the responsibility of reconstructing this organization politically and morally, giving it back its authority. It is the only world organism capable of representing humankind with authority and the only one where we can achieve universal consensus.” Video The session’s first speaker, President Domitien Ndayizeye of Burundi, appealed for a change in the global financial and trade systems to help poor countries develop in their struggle against poverty. “The economic and social imbalances resulting from the inequitable and non-inclusive character of the international financial architecture do not permit an efficient response to today’s very complex challenges,” he declared. “The interests and needs of developing countries are not sufficiently taken into account. The gulf between rich and poor is growing. It is therefore our collective duty to create an environment favourable for all the poor.”Noting the high level of misery and suffering in Africa, President Ndayizeye said less advanced countries were marginalized in the international financial system and deserved “special attention in terms of public development aid, direct foreign investments, debt relief, capacity strengthening and access to international markets.” He called for the elimination of all forms of export subsidies by rich countries that distort trade as well as various non-tariff barriers. Another major challenge is the battle against the AIDS pandemic, which “decimates whole populations, turns millions of children into defenceless orphans and drowns all development efforts,” he said. “Faced with such a danger, action is urgently needed.” Video Prime Minister Ilham AliyevFor his part, Prime Minister Ilham Aliyev of Azerbaijan stressed that the only response to terrorism should be the “uncompromising fight” against anyone who resorts to such tactics, “no matter what goals are used as a cover.” The success in the fight against terrorism could not be achieved without eradicating its underlying roots and eliminating factors creating a favourable environment for its dissemination. “On the other hand, it is not possible to resolve conflicts throughout the world, including in the South Caucasus, under conditions of the continuing practice of terrorism and support for it on the state level,” he added.Prime Minister Aliyev said Azerbaijan had fallen victim to aggression, occupation and terror unleashed by Armenia and that its appeals to the international community to unite in efforts in combating terrorism went unheeded. “Ten years have elapsed since the Security Council adopted four resolutions, demanding the immediate, complete and unconditional withdrawal of the Armenian occupying forces from the Azerbaijani territories,” he said. “Azerbaijan has on many occasions declared its commitment to the peaceful settlement of the conflict on the basis of norms and principles of international law. We are determined to continue with our efforts in this direction and we count on the active participation on the part of the international community.” VideoAlso addressing the Assembly during its afternoon session were the Vice-President of Costa Rica, Linnette Saborio, and the Foreign Ministers of Denmark, Per Stig Moeller, Lebanon, Jean Obeid, and Romania, Mircea Geoana. Prime Minister Pakalitha B. MosisiliUnderlining the huge problems of AIDS, poverty and debt afflicting Africa, Prime Minister Pakalitha B. Mosisili of Lesotho called for the developed countries to meet the commitments made at all the major UN conferences and at the 2000 Millennium Summit. “In our part of the world, southern Africa, governments are overwhelmed by the high levels of morbidity and mortality, especially among the working age group in all sectors, including health and agriculture. HIV and AIDS have become the leading cause of food insecurity and famine that plagues so many of our people today,” he said. “We therefore stress the need for urgent assistance to Lesotho and to the southern African region, with increased supplies of the anti-retroviral and other related HIV and AIDS drugs, in order to curb the scourge.”He also stressed the need for the international community to review the list of heavily indebted poor countries and those on the borderline, “so that all poor countries like Lesotho, which face debt servicing difficulties, could be considered under the Enhanced Heavily Indebted Poor Country (HIPC) debt initiative. My delegation also shares the view that debt cancellation for Least Developed Countries should be considered as a viable option for enabling the said countries to inject that money into their economies,” he added. Video President Boris TrajkovskiThe President of The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Boris Trajkovski, said reforming the UN – particularly the Security Council – and revitalizing the General Assembly were of crucial importance and should be pursued in an effective and efficient manner. It is obvious that all Member States needed to be more vocal in their support for multilateralism, particularly to ensure the eradication of poverty, combat HIV/AIDS, protect the environment and prevent conflict. He went on to say that terrorism was the most serious contemporary threat for humanity and must remain the highest priority.Looking homeward, President Trajkovski said his country had launched numerous regional initiatives in order to contribute constructively to cooperation with and among its neighbours. Macedonia had also recognized that the country could move beyond its unfortunate past by promoting the significant links among the people living in southeastern Europe, he added. In the Balkans today, President Trajkovski said the spirit of collaboration and mutual respect was now emerging, even between “yesterday’s enemies and opposing factions.” While expressing deep concern for the recent upsurge in inter-ethnic violence in Kosovo, he said in other areas, there had been gradual but steady reconciliation.

MONTREAL – An Ontario judge has certified a $1 billion class-action lawsuit against SNC-Lavalin on behalf of investors who saw the value of their investment in the company plummet following revelations of mysterious payments in North Africa.The Montreal-based engineering and construction firm didn’t oppose the certification in exchange for the plaintiffs withdrawing their original plans to seek punitive damages.Dimitri Lascaris, one of the lawyers involved in the case, said certifications normally take years to achieve because of opposition from defendants, but the case reached this stage at perhaps record speed.“I have done scores of class actions and I don’t recall a case where certification was ever achieved this quickly,” he said in an interview Thursday.SNC-Lavalin (TSX:SNC) also agreed to pay nearly $250,000 to advertise the notice of claim and to cover fees incurred for two plaintiff experts.The company said it intends to “defend our interests vigorously” and noted the case is limited only to statutory claims under securities legislation, which caps damages.The suit alleges that SNC-Lavalin violated securities law by misrepresenting that it had adequate controls and procedures to ensure accurate disclosure and financial reporting.The suit claims, among other things, that a 2009 prospectus offering $350 million of debentures failed to contain “full, true and plain disclosure of all material facts.”The claim arises from alleged payments made by SNC-Lavalin to members, associates and agents of the Gadhafi regime to secure contracts for infrastructure projects in Libya.The allegations have not been proven in court.The certification ruling by Justice Paul Perell of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice doesn’t apply to a separate $250-million claim filed in Quebec. It contains similar allegations filed in March on behalf of most investors in Quebec. A ruling to certify that claim, which also isn’t opposed by SNC, is expected in a few weeks.Two separate Ontario lawsuits filed by Lascaris and Rochon Genova LLP were merged earlier this year.Lascaris said the plaintiff could have refused to give up its claim for punitive damages, but felt it kept the strongest part of its case.A trial could begin next year or early in 2014 unless the case is settled.An expert hired by the plaintiffs, Prof. Douglas Cumming of the Schulich School of Business at York University, estimated damages at between $700 million and $1.1 billion.The lawsuit was brought on behalf of all SNC-Lavalin investors who purchased SNC-Lavalin securities between Feb. 1, 2007 and Feb. 28, 2012 or who bought debentures through the company’s June 2009 prospectus offering.The lead plaintiff is Brent Gray, a resident of Surrey, B.C., who purchased 600 shares in January at $52.20 per share.SNC-Lavalin’s stock dropped more than 20 per cent on Feb. 28, wiping out more than $1.5 billion of market value after the company disclosed the launching of an investigation into $35 million of undocumented payments.More than $3.3 billion has been wiped from the company’s value since SNC’s shares peaked at $59.97. They lost 64 cents to $38.16 in Thursday trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.In addition to current and former members of SNC’s board of directors, those named in the Ontario lawsuit include SNC-Lavalin International chairman Michael Novak.The claim said these officials, former CEO Pierre Duhaime and former controller Stephane Roy assisted executive vice-president Riadh Ben Aissa in arranging “improper or unlawful payments” to secure contracts in Libya.Duhaime, Roy and Ben Aissa have lost their jobs with SNC-Lavalin.Ben Aissa, SNC’s former head of construction, was last reported to be in a Swiss jail on suspicion of corrupting a public official, fraud and money laundering tied to his dealings in North Africa.The engineering and construction giant’s initial review led to it finding $56 million of payments to unidentified foreign agents.The company has insisted that none of the funds were directed to Libya.SNC-Lavalin removed $900 million worth of Libyan projects from its backlog in 2010 amid the civil war in the North African country.The RCMP executed search warrants at SNC-Lavalin’s headquarters at the request of Swiss police.

Jack LightstoneJack Lightstone, who has helped usher Brock University through an era of dramatic growth and partnership with its surrounding community, has been reappointed to a second five-year term as the University’s President and Vice-Chancellor.The unanimous decision was made today by the University’s Board of Trustees at its annual meeting, and comes at a time when Lightstone still has more than a year left on his current five-year term. The new appointment takes effect July 1, 2011.Rudi Kroeker, chair of the Board of Trustees, called the decision an important step for Brock and Niagara.“I am thrilled that the Board has reappointed Dr. Lightstone, and that he has accepted it,” said Kroeker. “He has demonstrated good reason for us to have great expectations of him, and I have every confidence that he will exceed them in ways that take my breath away. He’s integrated the University into the community and leads our elevation in academe.”David Howes, immediate past chair of the Board of Trustees and chair of the Committee on the Presidency, said the decision to re-appoint was not a difficult one.“He’s doing a great job,” said Howes. “This is about what is best for the University. Since he became President and Vice-Chancellor four years ago, Jack has shown that the board appointed the right person for the right time. And he continues to be the right person to lead the University in the direction that it needs to go in.”Over the past four years, Lightstone has overseen the completion or confirmation of numerous major projects to improve the student learning environment. These include the Niagara Health and Bioscience Research Complex, the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts for downtown St. Catharines, the International Centre and the extension to Welch Hall. Some have been done with community partners, and are designed to benefit not just the University but also the economic growth of the surrounding community.“The University has come to recognize a dual mission: contribute to the advancement of the international world of academe through teaching and research, and at the same time ever deepen its partnerships with the communities around us,” said Lightstone.“Increasing the level of partnership in the community has meant mobilizing the University’s intellectual capital on many fronts, to help drive the development of our extended region economically, culturally and socially. I have great enthusiasm for the mission that Brock is pursuing. It is an honour to continue to serve this great institution and its current developmental trajectory.”Before taking office as President and Vice-Chancellor on July 1, 2006, Lightstone had been at Montreal’s Concordia University for more than 30 years, where he held numerous academic and senior administrative posts including Provost and Vice-President.For more biographical information on Jack Lightstone, go to brocku.ca/about/senior-administration/lightstone read more

first_imgWalking through Argos last year – the mighty Argos of Homer’s Agamemnon – I came across its little cemetery, with its trees providing shade from the early summer sun. Holding my copy of a photograph from Australia’s War Memorial, I am taken back to 24 April, 1941 when a convoy of 160 Australian and other Allied nurses stopped here in the midday sun. The photo shows young Aussie nurses resting amongst the gravestones and trees. They are smiling and happy, showing no hint of fear, despite the incessant air raids they faced on the road. Standing in this quiet peaceful cemetery, I reflected on how it protected these young nurses from Australia all those years ago.Another who travelled this way in 1941 was a tired medical officer from Wangaratta, Major Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop. Tired and exhausted, he pulled over and rested in the early hours of 26 April under an olive grove.The road south is safe now but in 1941 nothing could have been further from the truth. As night fell on 26 April some of the troops moving south were harassed by German paratroops sent in pursuit of the Allied convoys after the battle of the Corinth Canal. And there was the constant danger of daylight air raids, craters and destroyed or abandoned vehicles littering the roads. A truck carrying the nurses overturned, injuring all aboard. Drivers would get lost in the night, taking the wrong turn and having to double back as happened to Weary Dunlop. Others would be deliberately misdirected by German agents in Allied uniforms, infiltrated behind enemy lines to gather information and cause confusion, as happened to former Melbourne Herald journalist Sergeant Henry. Over the next few days, over 11,000 Allied soldiers would be evacuated from Nafplio and the beach at nearby Tolos. Nafplio today is one of the quiet gems of Greece. As you arrive into the town, admire its parks and statues, the lovely harbour with the Island of Bourzi, all under the shadow of the imposing Venetian castle on the Palamidi that towers over the town below. The statues in the town celebrate its connection with some of the most famous heroes of Greece’s war of independence – Prime Minister Kapodistrias, General Kolokotronis and Prince Ypislante. And it was here too that the tragedies of Kapodistrias’ assassination and the imprisonment of Kolokotronis took place.Making your way through its lovely lanes you arrive at the town’s main square. Enjoying a Greek coffee here could not be more peaceful. But 76 years ago nothing could have been further from the truth. By April 24 the town was flooded with Allied troops, many without their officers or units, and abandoned vehicles clogging the streets. Streets and lanes of old Nafplio in 2013. These would have thronged with Allied soldiers and their vehicles in April 1941. Photo: Jim Claven It would be a few Australian officers led by a 36-year-old former law clerk from Richmond that would restore order to the chaos. Within hours of their arrival, Major Bernard O’Loughlin and his men had moved the troops outside the town to holding areas within citrus groves or to caves at the base of the Palamidi. Australian soldiers of the 2/2nd Field Workshop Company removed the vehicles. And how appropriate that these weary soldiers waited now beneath the Palamidi – named after the mythic Palamedes, son of the founder of the city, whose prowess before the walls of Troy earned him the praise of Ajax and Achilles and who invented the game of dice as a pastime for soldiers at rest. I wondered if any of the Allied soldiers now played dice as they waited in the shade at Nafplio.Some soldiers were offered accommodation, food and water by the local residents, leading one to write that he had “never seen any hospitality compare with what the women and children of Nauplia gave us …. Without hesitation they gave us all they had.”The soldiers waiting at Nafplio (and nearby Tolos) did so under constant daily air attacks, the German planes bombing the town and machine gunning its streets and harbour. Every hour bombers came in ones and twos, sometimes in sixes, and fighters coming in low to machine-gun. Many local residents hid in the cave church at the base of the Palamidi. The attacks were so constant and the fear of the soldiers was such that one mistook a flock of distant crows for Messerschmitts!One who was not deterred by the attacks was Weary Dunlop. While others hid in an olive grove, Dunlop insisted on continuing to write a note to his fiancé back in Australia while sitting on a dangerously exposed sea-wall, as German bombs and bullets exploded around the harbour. Others were not so lucky. As the Australian nurses arrived to embark from the harbour, they saw nearby the bodies of dead soldiers killed in an earlier air raid and burning ships in the harbour.As the evacuation ships arrived out in the bay after dark, groups of troops would receive their orders to move down towards the jetty, silently marching in groups of 50 “through the narrow, desolate streets … littered with ruins and broken glass and the inhabitants gone.” Troops would board smaller vessels, often Greek fishing caiques or barges and move out to embark on the warships and transports in the Bay. This process could be a smelly and dangerous task. The caique transporting the Australian nurses from the jetty was full of the day’s catch and boarding the large ships in a sea swell – and in a mid-length skirt – led one British nurse to fall into the bay, only to be saved by the brave action of the HMAS Voyager’s young Able Seaman Cyril James ‘Spider’ Webb from Broken Hill.Once aboard many evacuees mentioned the warm welcome they received from the sailors – a smile, a sandwich, biscuit, and a hot drink and place to rest after weeks of fighting and retreat. One exhausted officer fell into a sleep “like a coma” and Weary Dunlop fell asleep with a welcome tankard of beer on his chest. Some – like the Australian nurses who had hidden in the cemetery at Argos – would hear familiar Aussie accents as they boarded the Australian destroyer HMAS Voyager in Nafplio Bay. Other Allied troops would board the HMAS Stuart, whose sailors had served in the first Allied battle of the Greek campaign at Cape Matapan on 28-29 March, 1941. Tolos beach, Tolos, Greece, May 2011. Photo: Professor Douglas AlexanderBy 3.00 am on April 25, over 6,500 soldiers and nurses had been evacuated to Crete and Alexandria, and a further 2,600 on the night of the 26-27. By the morning of April 29 German troops entered Nafplio and around 700 Allied soldiers were captured.A similar evacuation organisation took place at the nearby seaside village of Tolos. Standing on the beach today, looking out to the small islets in the bay, it is a peaceful scene. But on the night of April 26-27 some 3,300 troops crowded around the village and in the hills that sheltered the bay. In the early hours of the 27th some 2,000 of these troops were evacuated, some on the HMAS Stuart and HMAS Perth – two Australian warships that had fought in the first Allied engagement of the Greek campaign, the battle of Cape Matapan on 28-29 March, 1941. Hoping for a further evacuation the next night, 130 Australian soldiers led by Major J Miller and Captain Douglas Jackson from Brisbane established a defensive perimeter around Tolos and fought off the advancing German paratroops from Corinth – ‘The Argonauts’ as they vainly called themselves – until late in the afternoon of April 29. But there would be no more evacuations from Tolos and surrender came at 5.00 pm that day. Those who were evacuated from Nafplio and Tolos included some of those who had fought to defend the Corinth canal on April 26. Men of the Australian 2/6th Battalion like Ballarat’s 25-year-old Captain John Jones, Coleraine’s 32-year-old Lieutenant Wilfred Sherlock and Caulfield’s 24-year-old Lieutenant John Daish. All would write detailed accounts of the tactics of the German airborne attack, hoping that the Allies would learn from the terrible experience of the men at Corinth. And the two British officers who had detonated the canal bridge – Captain Phillips and Lieutenant Tyson – sailed from Nafplio and would be awarded the Military Cross for their action that day.

Looking down on peaceful Nafplio and its bay from high up on the Palamidi today, I wondered at the thousands of Allied soldiers who had made their escape from captivity from this little harbour and the beaches of Tolos nearby. The Anzacs had come as volunteers from across Australia and New Zealand. Two thousand soldiers had been captured but over 11,000 had been saved. Though hundreds were now on the run in the hills of the Argolis – like Richmond’s Bernard O’Loughlin, Major Miller and Captain Jackson. But that is another story.* Jim Claven is a freelance writer and trained historian holding both Bachelor and Masters Degrees from Melbourne’s Monash University. He has researched the Anzac trail in Greece across both World Wars, and especially the Hellenic connection to Anzac through the role of Lemnos in the Gallipoli campaign. He has been Secretary of the Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee since its creation and is a member of the Battle of Crete and the Greek Campaign Commemorative Council. Jim thanks Jenny Krasopoulaki and the Pankorinthian Association of Melbourne and Victoria for encouraging his research. This is part 2 of 4 of his articles on the Anzacs at Corinth and the Argolis.

first_img400.000 phoques condamnés à mort, alerte l’IFAWLe Fonds international pour la protection des animaux (IFAW) s’indigne contre le ministère Pêches et des Océans Canadien (MPO) qui a fixé le total autorisé des captures (TAC) des phoques à 400.000.Une condamnation à mort pour des milliers d’animaux. C’est ainsi que le Fonds international pour la protection des animaux (lien non disponible) a qualifié la décision récemment prise par le gouvernement canadien. En effet, celui-ci a décidé de fixer à 400.000 le nombre de phoques du Groenland autorisés à être chassés, ce qui reflète selon l’IFAW “son obstination à poursuivre la chasse malgré l’absence de marché pour les produits dérivés du phoque, mais également sa réticence à préserver les ressources sous-marines et à se soumettre aux obligations internationales en matière de gestion des ressources halieutiques”. Ce faisant, “le Ministre canadien des Pêches et des Océans rejette l’avis scientifique de son propre département de recherche et réduit à néant tout espoir de gestion raisonnable”, déclare Sheryl Fink, Directrice du programme phoques d’IFAW. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Les chasseurs savent bien que la faible demande ne justifie pas la mort d’un tel nombre de phoques. Ce quota constitue un véritable affront pour les scientifiques du gouvernement canadien et une insulte aux chasseurs”, poursuit-elle. En effet, comme le rappelle l’IFAW, les TAC sont censés respecter les découvertes et refléter les dernières connaissances disponibles concernant l’état des populations, les changements environnementaux et les variations des taux de mortalité dans l’Arctique, au Canada et au Groenland. Or, une récente étude a montré que la population de phoques du Groenland diminuait. D’une part à cause d’une reproduction en net déclin, d’autre part en raison du mauvais état des glaces sur lesquels ces animaux évoluent.Ainsi, la chasse non règlementée du Groenland aura dans l’avenir un impact majeur sur cette population. Le dernier rapport sur les phoques du Groenland publié par les scientifiques du MPO souligne pourtant que “pour respecter le plan de gestion, le nombre de captures devrait s’élever au maximum à 400.000 animaux”. “Étant donné l’inquiétude exprimée par les scientifiques pour la conservation et la réalité actuelle du marché, il est difficile de comprendre comment le Ministre pourrait légitimer un taux de captures aussi élevé”, ajoute Sheryl Fink. “Le Canada essuie actuellement de fortes critiques pour le non respect de ses engagements internationaux relatifs à la gestion des pêches. Et il est désormais évident que, même lorsque des plans de gestion sont mis en place, ceux-ci ne sont tout simplement pas respectés”.Une industrie non viable et mourante “La chasse aux phoques commerciale est à l’agonie. La question est désormais de savoir si le gouvernement du Canada fera ce qu’il faut pour aider les chasseurs à se reconvertir, ou s’il continuera à alimenter de faux espoirs en établissant des quotas trop élevés et en prétendant que cette industrie a de l’avenir, alors que ce n’est clairement pas le cas”, assure t-elle encore.IFAW demande donc instamment au gouvernement fédéral de mettre fin à la chasse aux phoques commerciale et à chercher de nouvelles pistes pour les chasseurs de phoques et leurs communautés, plutôt que de continuer à gaspiller l’argent du contribuable en assistant une industrie mourante et non viable sur le plan économique.Le 25 mars 2012 à 14:11 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Sam Barlows Telling Lies GovernmentSurveillance Thriller Game Sets Release Date

first_img Barlow’s ‘Telling Lies’ Represents a Generational Leap From ‘Her Story’ “This is a game about listening to private conversations,” Barlow said. From a political perspective, the game’s point of view is that government invasion of privacy is a bad thing. It then explores what happens to people who are targeted by surveillance. “You see the gradual destruction of a character with ‘Telling Lies,’” he said.The story covers a span of about two years, and Barlow said some of the scenes are as long as 15 minutes. “That lets us have a pace that’s very un-cinematic,” he said. “There are comfortable, and uncomfortable, silences.” He described “Telling Lies” as akin to a cross between Steven Soderbergh’s “Sex, Lies and Videotape” and “The Conversation,” the 1974 surveillance thriller starring Gene Hackman.Without revealing any plot points, Barlow said “Telling Lies” will include a “cathartic bookend” that wraps up all the storylines with some personalization based on choices players made during gameplay. But he said there will be some questions left hanging. “The game will end when you have not necessarily seen everything,” he said.“Telling Lies” is not like “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.” Barlow said “Telling Lies” is essentially the opposite of a choose-your-own-adventure branching narrative. “The pitch for me was the idea of a story that encourages deep reading,” he said. “The more time you spend with it, the more detail and context you get.” Users will be able to rewatch certain scenes and see them in a new context after learning other parts of the story.Barlow declined to reveal the size of the “Telling Lies” budget but said the production was on an “indie-movie scale.” The cast and crew spent about six weeks shooting in L.A., with a total of about 40 speaking roles. After more than two years in the works, “Telling Lies” — the investigative thriller from acclaimed game creator Sam Barlow — is ready to take the stage.The game, produced with and released by Annapurna Interactive, will be available next Friday, Aug. 23, via Steam and Apple’s Mac and iOS app stores. “Telling Lies” will be $19.99 on PC/Mac and $6.99 on iOS.“Telling Lies” follows Barlow’s 2015 “Her Story,” a similarly cinematic video-game in which players are presented with a database of video that slowly reveals a mystery. But Barlow said the new project has a larger canvas than its predecessor, with around 10 hours of total video footage in “Telling Lies.”“I wanted this to be bigger, messier and more colorful than ‘Her Story,’” Barlow told Variety.In “Telling Lies,” players find themselves sitting in front of an anonymous laptop loaded with a stolen NSA database of video footage that comprises secretly recorded, intimate conversations of four people. The game stars Logan Marshall-Green (pictured above), Angela Sarafyan, Alexandra Shipp and Kerry Bishé, whose stories are linked by a single shocking incident. As in “Her Story,” users explore the database by typing search terms, watching clips where those words are spoken, and piecing together the story. ’12 Minutes’ E3 Trailer Shows Man Stuck in Time Loop The shoot took place in L.A.’s Mid-City neighborhood, where the production took over three houses, four apartments, and a small shop that were all located near each other. “It became a very immersive experience for the actors,” Barlow said. “We were pretty strict about [actors] sticking to the script, but the blocking was more like – just get into the space.”At this point, “Telling Lies” is mostly completed but the team is still making tweaks ahead of next week’s scheduled release. “We’ve been doing that fun thing with the bug database,” Barlow said. “You slowly make your peace with the small bugs.”The game is available for pre-order on Apple’s App Store; more info is available at tellingliesgame.com.Other titles from Annapurna Interactive, which Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures movie studio formed in 2016, include “What Remains of Edith Finch,” “Gorogoa” and “Florence.”center_img Popular on Variety Related ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

first_img In case you somehow forgot, there’s a whole lot of Marvel on the way. The one studio to absolutely nail the cinematic universe thing continues its complete takeover of every screen you own. And hey, as long as they can keep up the level of quality they’ve maintained so far (with few exceptions), I’ll certainly stick around for more. From the looks of things Captain America star Chris Evans feels the same way. The actor recently revealed why he decided to stick around for the fourth Avengers movie.In an interview with The Telegraph, Evans mentioned how nervous he was committing to six movies when he initially signed his contract. He’d already played a Marvel character in the 2000s Fantastic Four movies, but he wasn’t afraid of the Captain America films being bad. He was afraid of them being good.“Because if things worked out, I’d have to do all six of them. And at the time, that was the most terrifying aspect of it. That it was going to be so dominating, all-encompassing,” he said. Fortunately for fans of pretty Boston boys everywhere, Evans enjoyed the role enough to take on a seventh film when Marvel needed him to. After the Avengers roster got too crowded to fit into one Infinity War, Evens agreed to stick around for both Parts One and two.“I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third Avengers I was done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter…They said they had so many other characters to fit in – Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man – and couldn’t get them all into one movie,” he said. It’s a good thing they were able to come to an agreement. You wouldn’t want Cap to inexplicably disappear halfway through the story.So thanks to Marvel making too many movies in between the Avengers films, we’re getting a little bit more Chris Evans than we were originally supposed to. It’s still possible we might be getting more. Evans has said in the past he’d consider another contract extension, but the next two Avengers films are supposed to bring huge changes to the MCU. Captain America might not even be part of it after that. We’re still a couple of years from finding out for sure, though. Until then, we can enjoy a little extra Chris Evans when Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018, with the sequel following a year later.Over on the smaller screen, filming is underway for season two of Luke Cage. Rosario Dawson and Mike Colter were spotted filming the new season. There are some new photos from the set out there, and if Luke Cage/Jessica Jones is your OTP, these might be a little upsetting for you. Yeah, it looks like Claire Temple and Luke Cage are a thing in season two. As much as I enjoy him and Jessica Jones being married (and having a superpowered baby) in the comics, this pairing does make sense. There are only so many times you can patch up beautiful superhumans before you want to get with one. And they had some fun flirtation in the first season that could easily grow into a more serious relationship. Plus, Claire Temple is just the coolest part of the Netflix shows. She provides both the down-to-earth perspective and the connective tissue to make this smaller-scale streaming portion of the MCU work. If this relationship means Rosario Dawson gets more screen time in Luke Cage season two, I won’t complain.Finally, there’s Ant-Man. His next big-screen movie is still a ways off, but we have three new animated shorts to tide us over. Ant-Man is definitely among Marvel’s most fun, least self-serious superheroes and these Disney XD shorts fully embrace that. The first has Scott Lang using his superpowers to help his daughter at the science fair. Yes, it’s just as cute as it sounds.In the second, he fights off an alien invasion, with the help of The Wasp.And in the third, he eats some soup.These are the first of six shorts that aired on Disney XD last weekend. I love the art style they use, combining classic comic book-style illustration with modern animation techniques. The result looks like a moving comic. It’s not quite as fast-paced as traditional animation, but it allows you to appreciate every detail in the art. It also fits the tone of the shorts well. They aren’t huge superhero action pieces; they’re over-the-top comedic cartoons. The action moves well enough that you can tell what’s going on, and the dramatic angles and deep shading add to the sense of melodrama.You can see the rest of the shorts over at Disney XD.
