This past weekend was the anniversary their arrests. Reporters Without Borders condemns their arbitrary persecution by Ethiopia’s government with the aim of silencing independent voices.The six Zone9 bloggers (Atnaf Berhane, Mahlet Fantahun, Befekadu Hailu, Abel Wabella, Natnail Feleke and Zelalem Kibret) and the three journalists (Addis Standard’s Tesfalem Waldyes, former Addis Zemen employee Edom Kasaye and Addis Guday’s Asmamaw Hailegiorgis) were arrested in a coordinated operation in Addis Ababa on 25 and 26 April 2014.In the past year, their trial has been adjourned 27 times and their requests for release on bail systematically denied. Nonetheless, the prosecution has still not been able to produce evidence against them or say exactly what they are supposed to have done that justifies holding them.“We call for the immediate release of these bloggers and journalists, who have been unjustly detained for more than a year,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk. “Their prolonged detention without any possibility of release on bail violates their right to due process.””As David Kaye, the UN special rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression, has noted, Ethiopia recognized the need to respect media freedom during its last Universal Periodic Review by the UN Human Rights Council. So why is it waiting to implement it?”Kaye said on 25 April: “The continued detention of these journalists is absolutely unacceptable and particularly worrying as the country prepares to hold parliamentary elections on 24 May. The open public debate that should mark any democratic process is obviously undermined if journalists are silenced through harassment or detention.”The nine defendants are charged under the 2009 anti-terrorism law with “organizing themselves into covert groups to overthrow the government by contacting and receiving finance and training from two terrorist groups” – a charge that carries a possible 15-year jail sentence. Soliyana Shimelis, the group’s cofounder, who had fled abroad before the arrests, is being tried in absentia.The next hearing has been scheduled for 26 May.Ethiopia is ranked 142nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

This brutal terrorist organization poses a serious threat to the U.S., our allies abroad, and innocent people everywhere. The roots of its violence are deep and its stakeholders are widespread.

first_imgMarilyn Nieves/iStock(BARRON, Wis.) — Jake Patterson, the man accused of abducting 13-year-old Jayme Closs and holding her captive until she escaped months later, is expected to enter a plea at his arraignment Wednesday. Patterson, 21, allegedly shot and killed Closs’ parents on Oct. 15 and kidnapped the 13-year-old from her home in rural Barron, Wisconsin.The crime captivated the country and sent Barron County investigators on a months-long search for Closs and her then-unknown abductor.After Closs was rescued in January, the 21-year-old Patterson told police he targeted the teen after seeing her board a school bus, according to a criminal complaint.Patterson told investigators that he fled with Closs to his home in Gordon, Wisconsin. He allegedly created a space for Closs under his bed, and when he’d leave the house, he’d put weights around the bed so she couldn’t escape, according to the complaint.Closs told investigators that Patterson “would make her stay under the bed for up to 12 hours at a time with no food, water or bathroom breaks,” according to the complaint. On Jan. 10, when Patterson left the house, Closs fled to safety, according to court documents.Patterson was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, kidnapping and armed burglary. Patterson’s father, Patrick Patterson, told ABC News last month, “I’m very sorry for everything that has happened. … I wish for a complete healing of Jayme’s mind, heart and soul.”Closs and her family said in a statement in February, “Jayme and her family wish to extend their deepest gratitude for the incredible gifts and generous donations that she has received from all over the country and around the world.” “Jayme greatly appreciates each and every gift, as well as the many cards and letters,” the statement said. “The many kind words have been a source of great comfort to her.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgby Sarah DaviesDespite its title, Tom Costello’s newest play is anything but a laughing matter. Set in a dystopian not-too-distant future, the audience is thrown into a world ravaged by over-population, social darwinism, and severely mediocre sitcoms.The premise of the play is simple: the characters work as scriptwriters on the most popular show on TV. They hate it, but when they are instructed to end it by murdering the entire cast in the most mundane way possible, it creates a dilemma – surely even this, the very worst of shows, deserves a satisfactory ending?However, the main interest of the play lies in the relationships between the cast members. At first it seems that it is a straightforward case of adultery, and we watch as Charlotte tries to make the decision between her ever-so-slightly dull boyfriend and  her exciting toyboy. Yet as the play progresses it becomes clear the choice is not between men but between principles. Should she stay with her idealistic partner in reality, trying to make a difference, or move to the gated paradise of “the Orchard” and live carefree with her lover? Ultimately, her choice forces both Charlotte, and the audience, to question which they value more: moral standards or individual happiness.The cast’s performances add variety and encourage you to engage with what could have ended up a rather depressing production. There’s the overtly public school boyfriend, the obnoxious intern trading on his father’s name, and the adulterous Charlotte, who despite having no one but herself to blame one can’t help but sympathise with.In short: the idea’s interesting, the script’s good and the performances are engaging.  By: Tom CostelloBT, 9.30pm Tues-Sat 6th Weeklast_img read more


first_img Severed heads are not an unusual discovery for the Iron Age, but the placement of the skull in a wetland beside a wooden structure is very rare, possibly reflecting a practice of making ritual offerings in watery environments. An important historical find has been made in Somerset when a Langport dog walker found a well-preserved human skull.Roger Evans of Newtown found the skull along the banks of the River Sowy in March 2017. The skull was reported to the police and analysed. After several months the results revealed it belonged to a woman aged 45 or older during the late Iron Age (380-190BC) – several centuries before the first Roman invasion of Britain.The discovery hinted there may be more clues in the area, so in December the Environment Agency reduced water levels where the remains were found so South West Heritage Trust and the agency’s own archeologist could investigate.No other human remains were found, but the archaeologists discovered that the skull lay close to a series of round, timber posts driven deep into the river bed. These may be the remnant of a causeway or raised walkway and more posts could still survive hidden in the mud. Radio carbon dating of the posts is being carried out to see if they and the skull are of the same date. Further groups of posts were seen further down the channel, suggesting other prehistoric wooden structures are present nearby.The Environment Agency returned water levels to normal to provide a measure of protection to the timber posts and any other archaeological remains still in the channel.Stephen Dean, Environment Agency archaeologist, said: Analysis by a human bone expert showed that the female skull suffered considerably from gum disease and tooth loss. Her diet included coarse material, which had unevenly worn her remaining teeth, and resulted in severe osteoarthritis in the joint of her right jaw. She had also suffered at least one episode of chronic illness or nutritional stress during childhood. The woman’s head appears to have been deliberately removed at, or shortly after death.Richard Brunning, the South West Heritage Trust archaeologist, said: The Environment Agency’s future work on the River Sowy, carried out on behalf of the Somerset Rivers Authority, will be informed by past discoveries such as these and will look to capture more of the area’s rich historical and archaeological story. Notes to editors:The South West Heritage Trust is an independent charity committed to protecting and celebrating Somerset and Devon’s rich heritage. As well as the widely-praised Museum of Somerset and the redeveloped Somerset Rural Life Museum, in Glastonbury, the Trust manages state-of-the-art facilities in Taunton and Exeter to care for the extraordinary archive collections of the two counties. The Trust also provides essential advice about the historic environment and manages historic sites. Visit www.swheritage.org.uk/.Archeologists first delved into the wetlands between Burtle, Westhay and close to Glastonbury in the nineteenth century. In the Neolithic and Bronze Age. Farmers made wooden trackways to cross the wetlands of the Levels and Moors area, and also occasionally deposited valuable objects and human remains in the shallow waters. By the Iron Age, some settlements were actually made in the wetland – the Glastonbury and Meare Lake Villages – which could only be reached by dug-out canoes.Work commissioned by the Environment Agency at Steart Marshes at the mouth of the River Parrett has shown the presence of Iron Age farming communities on the Steart peninsula. Studies there, and further along the Parrett, have shown that the floodplain was constantly changing in response to sea level rise, climate change, and human activity.A community excavation by the South West Heritage Trust on the nearby ‘island’ of hard geology in the floodplain at Aller, discovered Iron Age defences and numerous circular pits for storing grain. The island may have acted as a defensive refuge from attacks and would have overlooked the wetlands where the skull was deposited. The chance discovery on the banks of the River Sowy has shone fresh light on Somerset’s hidden history. It has already added valuable information to the Somerset Historic Environment Record and reinforced our connections with the South West Heritage Trust. The discovery of the Sowy Skull is also a poignant reminder that, in looking to the future, the work we do must be informed by an understanding and respect for Somerset’s rich cultural and natural heritage. Only by understanding this heritage can we hope to leave it a condition fit for generations to come.last_img read more


first_imgUniversity runners, high school students, and mothers pushing strollers all took part in the 8th annual Brian Honan 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, with cheerleaders from Harvard there to boost them on. Out of 1,200 participants, more than 350 were members of the Harvard community.Harvard dominated the charity race, with five runners in the top 10 finishers. For instance, Josh Hicks ’11, winner of the 2010 race, won second place with a time of 16:43.7. In her first time running the race, Hannah Borowsky ’15 was the first woman to finish this year, with a time of 18:02.7. “I’ll do it next year for sure,” Borowsky said. “I know a lot of Harvard people who ran in the race today. It was a great social experience.”Harvard student Michael Zamora ’14 crosses the finish line in third place.A longtime partner of the Honan 5K, the Office of Community Affairs at Harvard sponsors 100 runners for the event, with spots open to any student, faculty member, or staff member. This year, Harvard Business School (HBS) also sponsored 100 runners. The charity run, named for the late city councilor from the neighborhood, benefits the scholarship funds of the Allston Board of Trade and the Brighton Board of Trade, as well as the charitable fund of the Honan family.“We’ve had tremendous support from Harvard,” said state Rep. Kevin Honan, who represents Allston-Brighton and is Brian’s brother. “A lot of people remember Brian and the causes he cared about. And it’s wonderful to see his friends, family, and members of the community all coming together for this event.”“We’ve had tremendous support from Harvard,” said state Rep. Kevin Honan (pictured in cap), who represents Allston-Brighton and is Brian’s brother. “A lot of people remember Brian and the causes he cared about. And it’s wonderful to see his friends, family, and members of the community all coming together for this event.”Caroline Weaver ’13 has run the race for three years. A varsity swimmer, Weaver said the race provides a great opportunity to have fun off campus. “It’s nice to run in the community, and get together with people outside of the pool,” she said. “The race falls right at the beginning of the semester, so it’s a great way to cross-train right before the start of the season. I’ve done it every year I’ve been here, and I hope others take up the tradition after I’m gone.”For Christine Heenan, vice president of Harvard Public Affairs & Communications, it was her fourth time running the race. “The Honan road race honors the legacy of a community leader, raises money that helps Allston and Brighton, and is a great event for Harvard runners and walkers,” she said. “The participation of more than 350 runners from Harvard and HBS sends an important signal of support to our neighboring communities.”Fellow runner Craig Rodgers, counselor and psychologist at the Harvard Bureau of Study Counsel, has participated since 2007. An organizer for the Harvard College Marathon Challenge, Rodgers coordinated a pre-race run from the Weld Boathouse to the race’s starting line for about 50 students and staff.“Community running, whether in groups of two or 100 people, provides visibility for Harvard in the community, as well as fitness,” Rodgers said. “It also gives employees and students a chance to connect outside the Harvard campus.”Craig Rodgers, from Harvard Bureau of Study Counsel, crosses the finish line barefoot. He organized a group of Harvard staff, students, and faculty to run.For information about Harvard’s other efforts to keep moving, visit Harvard On The Move. The fall schedule is currently posted for both the Cambridge and Longwood campuses.last_img read more


first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By Lissa HarrisAs much ink has been spilled about the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead‘s as blood spurts in the zombie apocalypse TV hit, but there is still much left to dissect.The last scene in the episode, “The Grove,” featured the death of the character Lizzie, a child with possible sociopathic tendencies, who was shot by the main character Carol—after Lizzie had murdered her younger sister to prove her theory that the zombies (or “walkers” as they are referred on the show) are still people. This heartbreaking scene has some viewers and critics wondering if TWD has gone too far. Before we discuss that, let’s break this scene down based on what we now know about the characters involved, how the show has featured children, and why and how we watch TWD.Carol began season 1 as a battered wife. Her husband was a loathsome character whom most experienced viewers assumed was expendable. His death later in the season served not only as sweet satisfaction but as a way to give Carol more depth and strength as a character.She suffered more tragedy in season 2, when her daughter Sophia went missing, only to be found as a “walker” and then shot in the head by Rick Grimes, the show’s protagonist. With each tragedy, Carol emerged stronger and harder than before, an understandable by-product of living under the constant threat of death. So, by season 3, Carol had become a valued member of the group.But, season 4 revealed a darker side of Carol, when her moral judgment came into question after she decided to teach the children how to use weapons. She later killed two members of the group because they carried a virus that threatened the camp. Rick subsequently shunned Carol, and she was banished from the group. She wasn’t seen again until the 10th episode of season 4, when she helped Lizzie and her sister escape a “walker” attack.Remember that the opening scene of the first episode in Season 1 featured a cop, later known to us as Rick, and a child who was walking away from him. Rick identified himself as a police officer and told the girl that he could help her. When she turned to look at him, she was revealed to be a “walker” and Rick shot her in the head.I believe that the writers purposely started TWD here to tell the audience that this show was going to be different. The chilling idea of murdering “monster” children is not new, however. We’ve seen it many times before in movies like 1956’s The Bad Seed, 1993’s The Good Son, 2004’s Dawn of the Dead and more recently in World War Z.It’s the most horrific scenario that we could imagine: being faced with the impossible decision to kill a child who had become a monster.TWD takes this idea and twists it in seemingly unimaginable ways. The writers have figured out how to show the rest of us just how truly awful our lives could be. After Sophia’s death in season 2, what happened in “The Grove” episode is simply the next step in the evolution of an “infected” child’s role in this dystopian society. Lizzie may not have been a “walker,” but her death was just as necessary in a world that can no longer properly care for the mentally ill.“Why do you watch that show?” is a question I get a lot. “Oh, I can’t stand all the violence and gore,” is usually the asker’s response to my explanation.I feel oddly comforted by TWD—and I know I’m not alone.As I watch the gruesomeness and pure terror unfold from my cozy couch while I sip my hot tea with honey, I am repeatedly reminded of how great my life is, regardless of my “high-class” problems as they relate to what’s happening on the screen. I also find it inspiring to watch each character struggle through the most horrific circumstances only to come out clean on the other side. They’re all survivors, and every week I look forward to the inevitable triumph of the human spirit. It leaves me filled with hope for the future of humankind.I don’t think the writers are concerned at all with testing the limits of what our eyeballs can withstand. I think they are more interested in finding out what happens to our value system when we’re faced with a world that puts every truth we hold dear in doubt. What is expected of us when we are suddenly faced with the penultimate role at the top of the food chain?I don’t think even they know the answer to that question yet. Carol’s mercy killing of Lizzie was the writers’ way of getting her back in our good graces. She is once again an empathetic character. Our hearts break for her, but we know, given all she has endured to this point, that she will prevail. Our feelings of hope and comfort have returned—and we feel this way because she shot an innocent child in the back.Suddenly, our own lives don’t seem so bad.last_img read more
