Four radio stations closed and a talk-show host detained for “inciting riots”

The organisation also calls for the immediate release of talk-show host Kalundi Serumaga, who has been held by the police for nearly 48 hours and who says he has been tortured.“The Ugandan media must clearly make an effort not to give rein to excesses, but gagging journalists and the public is never an appropriate response to any crisis,” Reporters Without Borders said. “As well as constituting a violation of free expression, the measures taken by the authorities are liable to fuel the resentment and frustration of the public, especially young people, and thereby revive tension.”Information minister Kabakumba Matsiko announced the suspension of three privately-owned radio stations – Suubi FM, Radio Sapienta and Radio Two Akaboozi Kubiri – on 11 September for inciting riots and “criminal mobs engaged in acts of theft, violence against persons, and destruction of property.” The previous evening the authorities had closed CBS, a station owned by the Kingdom of Buganda, one of Uganda’s traditional kingdoms.Reporters Without Borders has been told that force was used to seize Radio Two’s transmitter. “Security agents went to the Radio Two mast in the district of Naguru, put the guard under arrest and took away his mobile telephone so that he could not call the station,” a Kampala-based journalist said. “Then they vandalised the door to the transmitter and confiscated it.”The government banned the live radio debate programmes known as “ebimeeza” on the grounds that the radio stations were unable to control their content.The widely-respected host of Radio One’s “Spectrum,” a talk-show broadcast every evening at the prime time of 7 pm, Serumaga was abducted outside WBS television at around 11 pm on 11 September after participating in television debate in which he criticised President Yoweri Museveni. He was taken to Kampala’s Kireka district and was not seen again until around 1 p.m. yesterday, when he was located at Kampala Central Police Station (CPS). He is still being held there.The crackdown on the media followed violent clashes in Kampala on 10 and 11 September between the security forces and supporters of King Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II of the Baganda, the majority ethnic group in the capital, after the authorities made it difficult for the king’s aides to organise a royal visit to a northeastern district in the city. The clashes left an official toll of four dead (a dozen, according to other sources), many wounded and considerable material damage.Picture: Yoweri Museveni / Reuters RSF_en Uganda blocks social media and messaging apps, isolating election January 13, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

We’ve organised our student patrols for the surrounding estates, leaflet drops to remind students they live in residential areas and that a Garda presence will be obvious throughout the week. We’ve also organised for a higher number of our evening events to be held in town away from campus. A lot of these were measures we undertook during this year’s Fresher’s Week, which we’re proud to say went very well and was received very positively,” the ULSU president said.This year’s nominated charities include St Gabriel’s School, Heart Children Ireland, the Order of Malta and Acquired Brain Injury Ireland.

Protecting Antarctic blue carbon: As marine ice retreats can the law fill the gap?

first_imgAs marine-ice around Antarctica retracts, a vast ‘blue carbon’ sink, in the form of living biomass, is emerging. Properly protected and promoted Antarctic blue carbon will form the world’s largest natural negative feedback on climate change. However, fulfilling this promise may be challenging, given the uniqueness of the region and the legal systems that govern it. In this interdisciplinary study, we explain: the global significance of Antarctic blue carbon to international carbon mitigation efforts; the urgent need for international legal protections for areas where it is emerging; and the hurdles that need to be overcome to realize those goals. In order to progress conservation efforts past political blockages we recommend the development of an inter-instrument governance framework that quantifies the sequestration value of Antarctic blue carbon for attribution to states’ climate mitigation commitments under the 2015 Paris Agreement. Key policy insights Blue-carbon emergence around Antarctica’s coastlines will potentially store up to 160,000,000 tonnes of carbon annually. Blue-carbon will emerge in areas of rich biomass that will make it vulnerable to harvesting and other human activities; it is essential to incentivise conserving, rather than commercial exploitation of newly ice-free areas of the Southern Ocean. Antarctic blue carbon is a practical and prime candidate to build a cooperative, inter-instrument, non-market mitigation around; this should be considered at the ‘blue COP’ UN Climate change discussions in Spain. Allowing Antarctic fishing states to account for the carbon storage value of blue carbon zones through a non-market approach under the Paris Agreement could provide a vital incentive to their protection under the Antarctic Treaty System. The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research would be the ideal body to facilitate the necessary connections between the relevant climate and Antarctic governance regimes.last_img read more

The firm has said it will develop its food offering with lunchtime deals such as a panini and a cappuccino for £4.95, for example. Total sales growth is up 22% to £263.8m for the year to 26 February 2009. But like-for-like growth was at the slower rate of 2% compared to 3.7% for the first half of 2008/09.== Uniq cheese contract ==Wensleydale Creamery in North Yorkshire has won a contract with sandwich manufacturer Uniq Prepared Foods, to supply 100 tonnes of cheese a year, which will be used in Marks & Spencer’s Wensleydale and carrot chutney sandwiches, supplied by Uniq.== Starbucks sees loss ==Starbucks Corporation has reported a net revenue loss of 7.6%, down to $2.3bn, in its second quarter results to 29 March 2009. Like-for-like sales were down 8% compared to -9% in Q1 of 2009. Net revenue from US stores fell by 6.8% and international revenue was down 12.1%.

Kingsmill boosts ABF Group’s revenue

first_imgAssociated British Foods (ABF) has announced a 12% increase in the company’s revenue, with its Allied Bakeries business performing well and securing 4% growth for its Grocery division.In the 16 weeks to 7 January 2012, the group announced Kingsmill, in particular, had helped boost its UK grocery sales, but strong competition, driven by a high level of promotion, had affected the bread brand’s margins.In addition, the company’s Ingredients division saw a 2% increase in revenue, but marked a struggle in its yeast and bakery ingredients business, particularly in last year’s second half, which continued during the period. It attributed its difficulty to increases in raw material costs and a highly competitive trading environment in many of its markets. ABF commented on progress being made in improving productivity at the yeast extracts factory in Harbin, China which, combined with growth in enzymes, delivered some improvement at ABF Ingredients.The company rounded up its overall results by noting, in its interim management statement, that its trading performance for the period was in line with expectations.Twinings Ovaltine also continued to perform very well for the group, with good growth for tea in the US and for Ovaltine in developing markets.last_img read more
