Canada: An aboriginal welcome

first_img Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Indigenous Ministries Algonquin elder Annie Smith-St. Georges and her husband, Robert St. Georges, welcome the members of Joint Assembly. Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal] Annie Smith-St. Georges, an Algonquin elder, and her husband, Robert St. Georges,  officially welcomed the members of Joint Assembly to Ottawa, which is in the territory of the Algonquin First Nation. The evening session also included a reflection from the Rev. Jamie Scott, who has worked to support the United Church of Canada’s participation in the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for a decade.Smith-St. Georges welcomed those who had travelled “from the North, East, South and West to the Algonquin territory, the land of my ancestors.” She spoke of how her ancestors had welcomed newcomers to the land with open arms, as she was now doing, and she also spoke of the ways that aboriginal people are still suffering in many ways from the impact of the arrival of the people her ancestors welcomed.Scott’s reflection expanded on that theme. “I suspect that, like me, many of you didn’t learn anything about Indian residential schools in the classroom. There has been a great silence in this country about them,” he began. “But for the past 10 years I have had my heart broken, and broken open, by listening to the experiences of former students and their families,” he said, describing the damage former students suffered─as children, they were torn away from their families, and lost their language and culture; many were abused emotionally, physically and sexually. “So many lives [were] devastated by experiences of humiliation, rejection, trauma, loss, confusion, fear, anger and despair. How can we possibly make this right?” he asked.But Scott’s ministry has focused on reconciliation. Two fundamental teachings have guided him, he said: the advice of his Anglican friend and mentor, Canon Laverne Jacobs, that “it’s all about relationships”; and the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 5:23−24 that people should reconcile with their neighbours before offering gifts at an altar.As the TRC nears the end of its mandate, Scott asked if the churches will make a long-term commitment to healing and right relations? Time is short to create the foundation for a new relationship between aboriginal and non-aboriginal people, he said. And he urged the churches not to miss the opportunity to play a redemptive role in the healing of the nation. “For it is in the transformation of our relationships with those that we have hurt, that we become whole,” he said.

first_img Apartments ArchDaily Save this picture!© Yasunori HidakaText description provided by the architects. The Sanno apartment was completed in 1967. It had not been renovated for 45 years. The design concept for the renovation was to have two styles from two different eras coexist together. My intention was to give the Japanese-style room new value. Save this picture!© Yasunori HidakaRecommended ProductsLightsLouis PoulsenLamps – AJ CollectionLightsVibiaCeiling Lights – BIGPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles- CoverlamPorcelain StonewareCosentinoSurfaces – Dekton® Chromica CollectionWe approached the renovation like a surgical operation; the “drainage pipes, service pipes, and gas pipes” as the veins, the “electric wires” as the nerves, at lastly, the “oil supply machines” as internal organs. We thus aimed to replace the broken items and transplant them with new ones, giving new life.Save this picture!© Yasunori HidakaBy cutting an incision to the interior, we transplanted the world of 2012 to the world of 1967 (the same way fresh air is brought in through an open door).

Street, entrances, depth: the genesis of a coherent spatial arrangementThe project has chosen to link the high density imposed by the depth of the plots to the framework created by the buildings retained on the street. The system of entrances, creating a flow into the existing buildings as well as through to the full depth of the block, is the point of departure for spaces that stretch into the far reaches of the site, the first link in a chain extending to create this spatial arrangement.Save this picture!Courtesy of Babled Nouvet Reynaud ArchitectesA gradual opening out into these more distant internal areas establishes a series of sequences leading the pedestrian from the urban environment of the street to the residential breathing space available on the fringes of the site. The entrances are the starting point for all flows and all pathways. Just as a liquid cuts a channel through matter, the pattern of these pedestrian flows into the distance determines the outline and orientation of the built structures.Save this picture!Cross SectionBuilt Silhouettes, Deep PerspectivesThese diverging pathways bring unexpected angles to the planes of the buildings’ façades, enriching the three spaces laid out in the extended interior of the site. The views from inside the homes are slanted and aligned towards the most open aspects. Each successive exterior plane catches the light in its own way, bringing illumination with a play of multiple reflections, enhanced by the brightness of the metallic envelope wrapped around the buildings. Even the more enclosed spaces are surrounded by light from multiple sources.Save this picture!Courtesy of Babled Nouvet Reynaud ArchitectesA Unifying Envelope Reacting to its SurroundingsThe two longitudinal buildings at the heart of the block seem to brush against each other, exerting a mutual attraction, brought together by a unity of cladding that creates an interface of external extensions on the building boundaries: wide private balconies turned towards the garden for the Cogedim program, and narrower, liveable overhangs where each of the Crous program student rooms can put out a chair.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanIn this way the unifying envelope binds the two buildings together into a single architectural entity, reacting to the various surrounding elements. Planar and continuous on the exterior facades, the wrapper warps, as if pulled by magnetic forces, into a series of openings and screens interleaved like theatre wings wherever the proximity of the two buildings is most pronounced. The specific sequencing of the two programs (175 student rooms arranged in series, less predictable openings for the family homes) shift into the background to allow a unified impression of the whole to dominate.Save this picture!Courtesy of Babled Nouvet Reynaud ArchitectesA Façade with Colours and Patterns from a Woodland LandscapeThe skin surrounding the structures consists of panels of perforated aluminium of a texture and tint that react to the surroundings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Babled Nouvet Reynaud ArchitectesA foliage motif shapes a varying pattern in the panels’ perforations, a modulated matrix interlacing to create varied textures and changing shadow projections, constantly stirred by the actual movement and light play of the leaves and boughs of the tree-lined residential pathways and adjacent garden. The colours of this skin change with the angle and intensity of the natural light falling on it.Save this picture!Diagram 3Project gallerySee allShow lessRichard Levy Gallery Hatches Architectural Birdhouse CompetitionArchitecture NewsSwift House / WMR ArquitectosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:387 Rue de Vaugirard, 75015 Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Court sentences three journalists to imprisonment

first_img February 13, 2020 Find out more News Follow the news on Rwanda A court in the Kigali district of Nyarugenge yesterday imposed jail sentences on Charles Kabonero, the publisher of the weekly Umuseso, Didas Gasana, its editor, and Richard Kayigamba, one of its reporters, after finding them guilty of invading privacy in one of their articles. Kabonero got 12 months, while the other two got six months.“We firmly condemn these sentences, which deprive the newspaper’s staff of three of its most important members,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities clearly want to silence one of the country’s few independent publications.”The three journalists were also ordered to pay a fine of 1 million Rwandan francs (1,800 US dollars). They have not yet been taken into custody to begin serving their sentences and have 30 days to appeal. The court did not, fortunately, order the newspaper’s closure. Kabonero and Gasana were already given 12-month suspended jail sentences in another case.Reporters Without Borders has written to French President Nicolas Sarkozy drawing his attention to the press freedom situation and asking him to raise it with his counterpart, Paul Kagame, during the official visit to Rwanda that he is due to begin in three days.See the previous release below.———-04.02.2010 – Independent weekly threatened with being closed for goodReporters Without Borders is very concerned about the fate of the Umuseso, one of Rwanda’s leading independent weeklies, which could be closed down as a result of case brought by the public prosecutor’s office accusing it of libel and invasion of privacy for reporting that a government minister was having an extra-marital affair with the mayor of Kigali. A neighbourhood court in Nyarugenge is due to issue its verdict on 22 February. “We urge the judge to keep a cool head and to issue a fair verdict that respects press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The court must first establish whether the defendants are guilty of libel and if they are, there are much more appropriate punishments than jailing them and closing their newspaper for good.” Reporters Without Borders fears the gradual erosion of the limited freedom available to Rwanda’s privately-owned media in the run-up to the presidential election scheduled for August.On 27 January, the Kigali prosecutor’s office requested Umuseso’s closure and one-year jail sentences for its publisher, Charles Kabonero, its editor, Didas Gasana, and one of its reporters, Richard Kayigamba, for an article published in issue No. 382 in November about cabinet affairs minister Protais Musoni and Kigali mayor Aisa Kirabo Kacyira. The prosecutor’s office also asked that they be fined 5 million Rwandan francs (9,000 dollars). Kayigamba claimed in the article, which was accompanied by photos of the minister and the mayor, that he caught them together in a hotel. The public prosecutor’s office brought the case after the two officials denied the report.The one-year suspended prison sentences which Umuseso’s publisher and editor received in an unrelated case brought by a wealthy businessman, Tribert Rujugiro, is meanwhile due to be examined by an appeal court on 11 February. Rwanda was ranked 157th out of 175 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Eritrea, Somalia and Equatorial Guinea were the only African countries that received worse rankings.

At the same time, the China Digital Times website had published a list of 118 keyword combinations such as “Xinjiang blood”, “Han and Uyghur cannot live under the same sky”, “Uyghur and Han, demonstration” and “conflict, Han and Uyghur” that produce no result in search engines because they have been blocked by the Chinese authorities.

For more information on the censorship of independent news and information about Xinjiang, see the Reporters Without Borders press release of 7 July.———————–07.07 – Independent reports about Xinjiang rioting censored in ChinaReporters Without Borders condemns the Chinese government’s filtering of online information about the rioting in the Urumqi, the capital of the western province of Xinjiang, in which hundreds of people have been killed or injured. More than 50 Uyghur-language Internet forums were closed yesterday and communications were cut in the city.“Urumqi is currently cut off from the rest of the world,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Once again, the Chinese government has chosen to cut communications in order to prevent the free flow of information. We firmly condemn this behaviour, which is serious violation of Uyghur freedom of expression and an unacceptable act of discrimination.”The microblogging website Twitter has been inaccessible since yesterday afternoon. Uyghur PEN Centre general secretary Kasser said: “All the leading media are controlled by the state but only independent and privately-owned news sources are inaccessible. We have not been able to access any forum since this morning. It has so far been very difficult to confirm the reports we have been getting.”Sites that are inaccessible because of the rioting:http://www.twitter.comhttp://www.youtube.comwww.tianshannet.com.cn/www.wlmqwb.com Freedom of expression is strictly controlled in Xinjiang. At least three journalists are in prison there, one of them for writing a poem in favour of Uyghur culture. Under regulations that have been in force since January 2007, foreign journalists are free to visit the province but, once there, are closely monitored by the authorities. Radio Free Asia’s Uyghur-language services are jammed in China. The authorities have cracked down hard on Uyghur culture activists since September 2001, creating a great deal of frustration in the province, which has an ethnic Uyghur majority.The official Chinese press has covered the rioting but continues to be very evasive about its motives.

Two days after coup, army reins in media and political parties

first_img May 12, 2021 Find out more ThailandAsia – Pacific News Organisation The presence of military officers in TV stations and the action of the Thai information minister in summoning news media executives yesterday and telling them to censor the news were “completely unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said today.“We support the demands of the Thai Broadcast Journalists Association and the Thai Reporters Association for the restoration of press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Democratic elections will not be able to take place without their first being a free debate relayed by the news media.”The information minister yesterday told news media executives to cooperate in maintaining order and to “restrict, control, stop or destroy information” that could “affect the constitutional monarchy.”The message was clear, but the army clearly still lacks confidence in its own newly-acquired power. For this reason it announced on television that, in order to maintain law and order, meetings of political parties and the organisation of other political activities were banned. Another sign of its lack of confidence was the deployment of soldiers outside TV stations while officers carefully scrutinised all reports dealing with the military coup.
