Is Cuba heading towards a repeat of the 2003 Black Spring?

October 12, 2018 Find out more CubaAmericas Follow the news on Cuba Receive email alerts Organisation center_img Reporters Without Borders is worried about the situation of journalists in Cuba, where there have been cases of physical attacks, arbitrary detention, death threats and blocking of access to information in recent days.Hablemos Press, an independent news agency and free speech NGO, has been directly targeted by the Internal Security Department. Police physically attacked its editor, Roberto de Jesús Guerra, in Havana on 11 June. According to his wife, Hablemos Press reporter Magaly Otero Suarez, he is currently immobilized at home with multiple injuries to the face and right foot.A car ran down Raúl Ramirez Puig, a Hablemos Press correspondent in Mayabeque province, on 7 June. One of the two people in the car told him: “Anything can happen.”Mario Hechavarría Driggs, who also works for Hablemos Press, was the latest victim of arbitrary arrest when Internal Security Department officials arrested him on 8 June. Journalism student Yeander Farrés Delgado was also arrested while photographing the capitol building in Havana (now the headquarters of the science, technology and environment ministry) and was held for five hours.“Although the Castro regime gives the appearance of opening up politically, the methods used by the authorities to silence dissident journalists are clearly becoming more and more brutal,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The last of the journalists arrested in the Black Spring of 2003 was freed in 2011, but since then we have seen a gradual increase in repression.”Hablemos Press reported on 11 June that it has received repeated telephone threats in the past two months. After taking several threatening calls on the Hablemos Press phone line, Otero was summoned by the Internal Security Department on 12 June, and told to moderate the tone of the agency’s articles, which have irritated the government.The authorities have also gone so far as to disconnect the mobile phones of De Jesus Guerra, Otero and Arian Guerra, another Hablemos Press journalist, from Cuba’s sole mobile phone network, provided by state-owned ETECSA, to hamper their communications.“What happens to the right to information if the government blocks phone connections at will and Internet use is extremely limited in Cuba?” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “We call on the Cuban authorities to restore the phone connections of Hablemos Press’ journalists without delay.”Reporters Without Borders also condemns the conditions in which the authorities have been holding the independent journalist Juliet Michelena Díaz in Havana since 7 April without any court decision in her case. She was initially accused of threatening a neighbour, but the charge was changed to “terrorism” within a week of her arrest.Yayabo Press journalist Yoenni de Jesus Guerra García has meanwhile been held since October 2013 and was given a seven-year jail term in March. And the blogger Ángel Santiesteban-Prats, one of the 100 “information heroes” profiled by RWB in May, has been held on trumped-up charges since February 2013.Cuba is ranked 170th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. This is the lowest ranking of any country in the western hemisphere.

#AllIrelandFinal: Everybody counts as an equal in Kiely’s camp

first_imgLimerick manager John Kiely By Mal KeaveneyUNDER strict regulations drawn up for this truncated championship, only 26 players and a reduced backroom team were allowed attend on match day.Inclusive of backroom personnel, Limerick’s set-up would number around 50, and the surplus were in a kinda human cruelty fashion left at home for the outings to date against Clare, Tipperary, Waterford and Galway.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick manager John Kiely is pleased that this ‘wrong’ has been righted for the All-Ireland Final.In Kiely’s eyes, coach driver Kevin Griffin is equally as important as two-time All-Star Seán Finn.Always a useful player in his own right – he played both senior football (who he captained) and hurling (Munster medallist in 1994) with the county – it will, however, be for his excellent managerial skills that Kiely will enrich the GAA history books in times to come.It was a self-referral (to current Munster and then Limerick Chairman Billy Lenihan) ten years ago that saw Kiely step onto the managerial ladder.Initially he spent time with the county intermediate and under-21s.Kiely landed the plumb job in the Autumn of 2016, and what has followed for success-starved Limerick supporters has been nothing short of magical.Kiely is fortunate to have a superb backroom setup in the likes of 2013 Munster winning captain Donal O’Grady, Alan Cunningham, Paul Kinnerk (coach), Timmy Houlihan, Mikey Kiely and Aonghus O’Brien. Others, such as Liaison Officer Éibhear O’Dea, Dr. James Ryan, Kit Manager Ger O’Connell and Physio Mark Melbourne, are also key components in a well-oiled machine.Ireland’s leading performance psychologist Caroline Currid is also back with Limerick for 2020.Limerick want for nothing under the sponsorship of the McManus Family, Martinstown.In Waterford, after two forgetful seasons rookie manager Liam Cahilll – a double All-Ireland winning Tipperary player – has most certainly turned around the county’s fortunes in next to no time.Read our All Ireland Final Preview here … Linkedin Print Facebook Email WhatsAppcenter_img SportGaaNews#AllIrelandFinal: Everybody counts as an equal in Kiely’s campBy Staff Reporter – December 12, 2020 186 Twitter Advertisement Previous articleLimerick fancied to topple Waterford in a novel Christmas All-Ireland finalNext articleAn Garda Síochána Calls On Hurling Fans To Play Their Part This Weekend In Tackling Spread of Covid-19 Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

BC Transit receives millions in funding, plans improvements

first_imgCommissioner of BC Transit Greg Kilmer said he appreciates the support from elected officials, and told 12 News that money received recently will be used to help support rural communities in the Southern Tier. “The rural communities in Broome County are much, much larger than anyone would imagine,” he said. “We have embraced the spirit of the CARES money, and so we’ve made a lot of modifications to make things safer, and it’s going to make us safer going ahead.” Congressman Anthony Brindisi announced around $1 million in funding would be heading to the Broome County Department of Transportation from the Federal Transit Administration. VESTAL (WBNG) — As Broome County Transit continues to receive funding, the Commissioner Greg Kilmer said he appreciates the support and changes to the bus station are coming. He mentioned that he’s been in touch with officials at the county’s health department, and said the contact tracing teams have seen few issues with buses. The department had previously received just under $11 million as part of the CARES Act back in April.center_img Kilmer says these measures are just part of the department’s ability to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The money will allow for changes like touchless fare systems, and the experimentation with new sprays that kill germs more effectively, as well as helping hire and retain CDL drivers for buses. Kilmer says there is no evidence to support the virus being transmitted on a bus. Overall, Kilmer said the current funding the department has will also be used to help offset costs brought on by the pandemic, which has included a decrease in ridership.last_img read more

Balotelli talks progressing well

first_img Press Association Talks between Mario Balotelli’s representative and Liverpool are understood to be progressing well as the club seek assurances about the player’s behaviour – although any deal will not be completed in time for him to feature against Manchester City. A key aspect of those discussions is believed to be the Merseyside outfit’s desire to obtain some kind of guarantee about the discipline of the mercurial 24-year-old Italy international. Balotelli himself remains in his homeland for now and will not be able to take part in Liverpool’s Barclays Premier League clash with his former side City at the Etihad Stadium on Monday as the transfer would need to be completed by midday on Friday for him to be eligible. Balotelli on Thursday added credence to the reports that he is set to return to English football by saying it would be his last day at Milan’s training ground. The Serie A side followed that later with a statement on their website revealing he had said his farewells to his team-mates. Liverpool have been looking for a marquee striker to replace the departed Luis Suarez this summer but their interest in Balotelli represents a remarkable about-turn from around three weeks ago. When the Reds played Milan in a friendly in the United States, manager Brendan Rodgers expressed admiration for Balotelli but subsequently ”categorically” said he was not a target. Recently, however, a move for QPR’s Loic Remy has collapsed while interest in former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o has cooled and attempts to sign Radamel Falcao from Monaco seem unrealistic. With new signing Rickie Lambert the only frontline support for Daniel Sturridge and the transfer deadline nearing, a move for Balotelli has become more attractive. Balotelli is a proven performer and scored Italy’s winner in the World Cup opener against England in Manaus. But the baggage that comes with him is considerable. His spell at City from summer 2010 to January 2013 was a whirlwind one, with occasional sparkling performances interspersed with volatility on the field and erratic behaviour off it. His numerous misdemeanours famously included fireworks being set off in his bathroom, throwing a dart at a youth-team player and training-ground bust-ups with team-mates and manager Roberto Mancini. On the positive side he played a key role in the 2011 FA Cup win and contributed to the following year’s Premier League success, but he also hindered progress by accruing four red cards. City – for whom he scored a total of 30 goals in 80 appearances in all competitions – eventually tired of the circus surrounding him and offloaded the former Inter Milan player to his boyhood club AC Milan. Reports suggest the Reds have agreed a £16million fee with AC Milan for striker Balotelli’s proposed move to Anfield. And while Liverpool have not commented, Press Association Sport understands productive discussions involving Balotelli’s agent and the club took place in England on Thursday and are continuing on Friday. last_img read more
