In a communiqué issued at the end of last week’s meeting of the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA) in Kigali, Rwanda, the continent’s primates said that they “decry the numerous lives lost and futures and hopes destroyed in meaningless wars.” They were challenged by Rwandan government minister Francis Koboneka to use their influence “to contribute to building cohesive, peaceful and thriving communities” on a continent that is “deeply wounded and needs healing.”They added: “The continuing mis-investment in weapons of war at the expense of productive sectors like agriculture, social services, job creation and research into initiatives that will enable communities mitigate the effects of climate change and food insecurity is a major concern to us.”Full article.

congress-nears-end-of-fiscal-yearCongress is back after its long summer break and with just weeks to go before the end of the fiscal year it will attempt to avoid another government shutdown, something lawmakers don’t want before an election. But just under nine weeks before election day, American Farm Bureau’s RJ Karney says there is a split over how long into the new fiscal year to extend current funding, either into a lame-duck Congress or a newly-elected one.“There’s no well-known answer yet on if it’s going to go into a lame duck session or if they’ll kick it into March of next year,” he said. “So that’s sort of a wait and see game. Congress typically likes to respond as close to deadlines as possible”And with crop and dairy prices so low and producers looking for near-term help, Karney said another ‘kick the can down the road’ scenario is not good for agriculture.“Unfortunately in some ways it’s going to be more of the same, meaning Congress is passing a continuing resolution, possibly an omnibus, which has become the new regular order in many regards for the past 6 or 7 fiscal years.”He says there are consequences to delaying decisions on EQIP and other conservation programs, ag research and rural development, biotech outreach, policies dealing with Cuba, and reform of meat marketing rules.“If that continues it causes a lot of uncertainty on what any new programs Congress might be able to allocate more money to, where some cuts may come in, and as farmers are trying to make decisions these are going to have impacts not only on farmers but also on rural communities throughout the United States.”Mandatory crop programs like crop insurance, crop payments, and nutrition programs would not be affected by continuing current spending.Source: NAFB News Service By Andy Eubank – Sep 11, 2016 SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News More Ag Uncertainty Looms as Congress Returns More Ag Uncertainty Looms as Congress Returns Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleEPA Decision on Dicamba Expected Late in 2016Next articleTrade is Not to Blame for American Job Loss Andy Eubank
Weekly seized from Gabon’s newsstands Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the array of restrictions that the Gabonese authorities have imposed on journalists in the run-up to the 30 August presidential election. Communications minister Laure Olga Gondjout today nonetheless tried to defuse tension and concerns by spelling out the rules for journalists on voting day.The election is to choose a successor to President Omar Bongo Ondimba, who died in June after 41 years in power.“What with restricted media access to polling stations, harsh warnings, intimidation and refusal to issue some foreign media with accreditation, the government is using all available means to keep news and information under tight control,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It should understand that such behaviour will just fuel concern that the elections will not be free and fair.”The press freedom organisation added: “We take note of the communication minister’s promises and we hope that journalists are able to work freely and without impediment on Sunday. If they are not, it will cast a long shadow on what should be an historic election.”Media not welcome in polling stationsIn a communiqué drawn up at a cabinet meeting and in news conferences held by interior minister Jean-François Ndongou and National Communications Council chairman Emmanuel Ondo Methogo, the government announced yesterday that journalists would only be able to make “brief” visits to voting stations when public figures were casting their ballots, and would not be allowed to “stay there permanently.”The authorities also announced that: “Only the state media will be allowed to officially communicate the results on the basis of data provided by the interior minister.” The vote counting will be public but journalists will only be able to attend by staying outside the voting stations. Elections results will not be posted.A foreign journalist told Reporters Without Borders: “We have been notified that any comment on the results that does not come from the interior ministry will be regarded a projection or a poll, and will automatically result in our being deported from Gabon.”The Gabonese Media Observatory (OGAM), a self-regulatory entity formed by all the leading Gabonese media, condemned the government’s “iniquitous” decisions and accused the authorities of “flouting press freedom and gagging the people’s right to information.”Hand-picked foreign journalistsJournalists Virginie Herz and Nicolas Germain of the French 24-hour news channel France 24, Gervais Nitcheu of the TV news agency AITV/RFO and Vincent Hugeux of the French weekly L’Express will not be able to cover the election because their requests for accreditation have been turned down.“This is a sovereign decision that we do not have to explain,” Gondjout, the communication minister, told L’Express editor Christophe Barbier. In a blog entry on Nomades Express , Hugeux said he thought his application was rejected because an ironic report he wrote about the late President Bongo’s election campaign in November 2005 “did not find favour in high places.”Poisonous climate and partisan pressThe climate in the run-up to the election is widely regarded as worrying. Reporters Without Borders was separately told by several sources which it prefers not to identify that intimidation and telephone threats are common.The campaign of former minister André Mba Obame, who is running as an independent candidate, reported on 23 August that its website had been blocked by hackers for 48 hours. Distribution of the fortnightly Tango was banned on the orders of the communications ministry chief of staff at the start of August because of a series of articles critical of the ruling Gabonese Democratic Party (PDG).Reporters Without Borders regards the ban not only as violation of free expression but also as an abuse of authority as, in Gabon, only the National Communications Council is empowered to issue warnings to publications or suspend them.Reporters Without Borders added: “While journalists are above all victims of restrictions imposed by the authorities, the Gabonese media’s behaviour is not always beyond reproach. Journalists, especially those working for privately-owned media, often let themselves be used as the mouthpieces of particular candidates, to the detriment of impartial and independent reporting. We remind journalists of their duty to be objective and respect professional ethics.” GabonAfrica Reports News November 27, 2020 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Gabon RSF_en News News August 28, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Media coverage of presidential election likely to be heavily restricted to go further GabonAfrica December 31, 2019 Find out more Help by sharing this information January 24, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Gabonese journalist could spend New Year’s Eve in prison Receive email alerts

Three reporters are still been held by the authorities. Reporters Without Borders is concerned that the mounting violence is preventing journalists from working freely. May 29, 2019 Find out more The Nepalese army on 18 October released editor of the monthly SagarmathaTimes Jeetman Basnet from Bhairavnath barracks in Katmandu, where it hadbeen holding him. He had been arrested on 4 February 2004 for allegedsympathies with the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist).The army had in an 11 March letter to the Supreme Court denied knowinganything about Basnet’s whereabouts. The interior and defence ministrieshad also officially confirmed this. However a special commission responsiblefor investigating cases of missing persons had said the journalist wasindeed imprisoned by the army on the orders of the government.Basnet, who is also a lawyer, has told the daily Rajdhani that he wasill-treated while in detention. He also said that the army was still holdingBhai Kaji Ghimire, of the monthly Samadistri, who had been thought to be atliberty.___________________________________________________07.09.2004Journalists kidnapped and harassed, newspaper offices attacked in wave of violence against the mediaReporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) expressed concern today about rising violence against journalists and media in Nepal and said it feared it would prevent free and proper reporting of events there. to go further Under Chinese pressure, Nepal sanctions three journalists over Dalai Lama story NepalAsia – Pacific It declared support for efforts by the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ) to obtain the release of three journalists held by the authorities and two others kidnapped by Maoist rebels and repeated its call to the rebels to guarantee press freedom in the regions they control.Demonstrators assaulted journalists and attacked the offices of several media in Kathmandu on 1st September. Reporters Without Borders called on home minister Purna Bahadur Khadka to explain why police had not protected media offices and journalists during the Kathmandu protests.It renewed its call for the government to release Raju Kshetri and Maheshwar Pahari, of the weekly Rashtriya Swabhiman, and Jeetman Basnet, of the monthly Sagarmatha Times, who are being held in poor conditions. The supreme court has already ordered the release of Pahari and Basnet.The press freedom organisation has regularly deplored attacks on journalists and obstruction of their work by the rebels and the security forces in recent years. It has put both rebel leader Pushpan Kamal Dahal (“Comrade Prachanda”) and Nepalese King Gyanendra on its worldwide list of “predators of press freedom.” The Maoist rebels, heavily criticised after the 11 August execution of Radio Nepal reporter Dekendra Raj Thapa, continue to intimidate and threaten journalists in the districts. Bijay Mishra, a reporter for the daily Kantipur in the eastern district of Siraha, received a death threat on 2 September from a rebel cadre known as “Bibek”, who promised him “the same fate as Dekendra Raj Thapa.” The Maoists accused him of failing to report their activities in his newspaper.Baikuntha Dahal, a freelance journalist in the eastern district of Udaypur, has been receiving death threats from the Maoists for several weeks, especially in their clandestine radio broadcasts, because of his alleged support for the armed forces. Anup Gurung, of the local weekly Purva Mechi, was arrested on 29 August in the eastern district of Ilam when rebels forced him to join the “people’s divisions” as punishment for not reporting favourably on their activities in the region. He was made to serve as a porter but managed to escape. Journalist Durga Thapa was held for more than two weeks in August in eastern Nepal. The rebels are thought to have seriously violated press freedom at least a dozen times this year, through murders, kidnappings and death threats. The violent demonstrations that erupted in Kathmandu on 1 September after the execution of 12 Nepalese hostages in Iraq the previous day affected the media when protestors set fire to the offices of the privately-owned media groups Kantipur and Space Time. At least five Kantipur employees were hit by the demonstrators. Despite media appeals, police did not intervene. A dozen journalists, including Minal Pandey, of the Nepal 1 TV station, and Kiran Pandey, of the fortnightly magazine Himal Khabarpatrika, were attacked while reporting on the disturbances.Badri Khadka, said to be the correspondent of the banned pro-Maoist weekly Janadesh in the eastern districts of Mechi and Koshi, was reportedly killed by security forces on 29 August in Govindapur (Morang district) after being arrested and tortured. Local journalists said his body had been mutilated. The security forces have not confirmed his death, which was announced by the rebels.Reporters Without Borders cannot confirm that Khadka, 27, worked for Janadesh, which has only been available online since it ceased appearing in printed form in August 2003. The press freedom organisation considers that the total support of the staff of Janadesh for the armed rebellion of the Nepalese Communist Party is a serious violation of journalistic ethics.
