This house is on the outskirts of Ahmedabad on a 4-acre land having dense flora, a lily pond and an existing outhouse having a vernacular typology. The new house was to be a permanent dwelling away from the city into the natural wilderness. Earlier the Munshaw family owned a colonial style house in a densely populated locality of Ahmedabad and which was build in mid 20th century. The owner’s initial brief for the new house included a preference to avoid a rigid box formation, a mention of lifestyle that was mostly outdoors, and a dwelling that would be a container for the collection of artifacts, paintings, Persian rugs, books and ancestral furniture.Save this picture!© Bharat AggarwalRecommended ProductsWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreFiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panels – concrete skinFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bharat AggarwalThe proposed design weaves and integrates the above concerns.

Representación excesiva en las prisiones: Las personas LGBTQ2S+

first_imgQueers Exigen un Mundo Sin Prisiones: ‘Rechazamos la legislación sobre delitos de odio, las prisiones “sensibles al género” y todas las demás medidas que utilizan la retórica de los derechos de los homosexuales para ampliar los sistemas que nos asesinan y encarcelan. Nos solidarizamos contra el complejo industrial penitenciario que tiene como objetivo a las personas de color, los inmigrantes, las personas queer y trans, los trabajadores del sexo y los pobres. Creemos en la imaginación queer y en la justicia transformadora para construir un nuevo mundo basado en la liberación y la interdependencia’.Crédito: Tyrone BoucherEn todas las etapas del sistema de injusticia penal, las personas LGBTQ2S+ están sobrerrepresentadas, incluso dentro del sistema de justicia juvenil.Según la Iniciativa de Política Penitenciaria, esto es así desde el arresto hasta la sentencia, pasando por el encarcelamiento, la libertad condicional y la libertad vigilada: “En 2019, las personas gays, lesbianas y bisexuales (con una tasa de arresto de 3.620 por cada 100.000) tenían 2,25 veces más probabilidades de ser arrestadas que las personas heterosexuales (con una tasa de arresto de 1.610 por cada 100.000). Esta disparidad está impulsada por las mujeres lesbianas y bisexuales, que tienen 4 veces más probabilidades de ser detenidas que las heterosexuales (con una tasa de detenciones de 3.860 por cada 100.000 frente a 860 por cada 100.000). Mientras tanto, los hombres homosexuales y bisexuales tienen 1,35 veces más probabilidades de ser detenidos que los heterosexuales (con una tasa de 3.210 detenidos por cada 100.000 frente a 2.380 por cada 100.000)”. ( tasas de encarcelamiento también reflejan las tendencias discriminatorias de las tasas de detención, y las mujeres homosexuales son las más afectadas por la desproporción. Ellas, junto con las mujeres trans -cuya orientación sexual puede coincidir con la identidad queer o no-, también suelen ser las que menos datos tienen para demostrar lo que les ocurre.“Una vez entre rejas, las personas trans se enfrentan a índices extremadamente altos de acoso y agresiones físicas y sexuales, se les niega con frecuencia la atención sanitaria rutinaria y corren un alto riesgo de ser enviadas a régimen de aislamiento. Black and Pink descubrió que al 44% de las personas transgénero, de género no binario e [indígenas] de dos espíritus de su muestra se les negó el acceso a las hormonas que solicitaron”. (Prison Policy Initiative)Este alto porcentaje de personas LGBTQ2S+ persiste en las prisiones, las cárceles y los centros de detención de inmigrantes y se entrelaza con otras opresiones basadas en la raza, la discapacidad y los ingresos. Los datos demuestran que las personas negras, latinas e indígenas están encerradas en cantidades increíblemente desproporcionadas con respecto a su porcentaje de población. Muchas personas LGBTQ2S+ son personas de color y muchas tienen discapacidades.No hay datos sobre los nativos de dos espíritus encarcelados. Sin embargo, según el Llamamiento, Dakota del Sur está a la cabeza del país en cuanto a ingresos en prisión basados en detenciones por delitos no violentos, y los nativos representan la mayoría de todas las detenciones en ese estado.“En Dakota del Sur, las personas que son arrestadas e ingresadas en la cárcel son desproporcionadamente nativas. Aunque los nativos representan el 8,7% de la población de Dakota del Sur, son aproximadamente la mitad de los que ingresan en las cárceles del estado. Las disparidades raciales en las tasas de encarcelamiento existen en todo el país -los negros son encarcelados a un ritmo más de 4 veces superior al de los blancos-, pero las disparidades en Dakota del Sur son mucho mayores: Según datos del Instituto de Justicia Vera, los nativos de entre 15 y 64 años son encarcelados a un ritmo 10 veces superior al de los blancos en Dakota del Sur”. (The Appeal, 18 de septiembre de 2019)Raíces de la opresiónLa opresión basada en el género y la opresión basada en la orientación sexual tienen sus raíces en el auge de la propiedad privada y el capitalismo. Estas opresiones tienen raíces similares a las de otras opresiones basadas en la clase como la raza y la discapacidad.La opresión basada en el género y la orientación sexual se mantiene a través de diversas medidas sociales como, por ejemplo, la criminalización y la estructura de la familia nuclear. Estas tácticas se basan en el poder punitivo del aislamiento, el confinamiento y el encarcelamiento impuestos.La sobrerrepresentación de las personas LGBTQ2S+ en el sistema jurídico penal se debe en gran medida a los obstáculos a los que se enfrentan los jóvenes LGBTQ2S+ después de huir de los abusos y la falta de aceptación en sus hogares. Para sobrevivir, muchos se ven empujados hacia la venta de drogas, el robo y el trabajo sexual, lo que aumenta drásticamente el riesgo de detención y reclusión.Hasta 1973, la Asociación Americana de Psiquiatría incluía la homosexualidad en su Manual de Diagnóstico y Estadística (DSM). Esa definición médica -y las suposiciones que continuaron incluso después de que fuera retirada de la lista- se ha utilizado para confinar, aislar y castigar a muchas personas LGBTQ2S+.Debido a las condiciones materiales a las que se enfrentan las personas LGBTQ2S+, muchas se encuentran con altos índices de depresión, ansiedad e ideación suicida. En este contexto, alguien que necesita atención de salud mental puede acabar recluido durante una temporada indefinida en un hospital bajo estricta vigilancia, experimentando algo más parecido a un castigo que a una ayuda.Luchas compartidas, abolición, liberaciónLa liberación de los oprimidos por su género u orientación sexual significa imaginar y construir un mundo sin prisiones, cárceles y centros de detención de migrantes. Estas estructuras no mantienen a las personas a salvo de la violencia, sino que perpetúan la violencia arraigada en los orígenes de estas instituciones en este continente.Las prisiones, las cárceles y los centros de detención de Estados Unidos evolucionaron a partir de la esclavización de los africanos. La esclavitud codificó legalmente a los negros como propiedad. Durante el paso de la esclavitud al sistema de arrendamiento de convictos hasta el encarcelamiento masivo de hoy, se han compartido continuamente las luchas para abolir estas instituciones que se basan en el beneficio de las personas.Ahora la lucha se ha centrado en acabar con el complejo industrial penitenciario que se lucra y en abolir el estatus legal de la propiedad privada capitalista. La abolición también significa el fin de las fronteras y la criminalización de los migrantes, que no son más que trabajadores y personas oprimidas que buscan un lugar donde puedan sobrevivir.La organización de la sociedad en torno a la satisfacción de las necesidades humanas puede y debe construirse después de la esclavitud.Muchas de las razones por las que las personas LGBTQ2S+ acaban recluidas en prisiones, cárceles y centros de detención podrían aliviarse, en primer lugar, con la abolición del capitalismo. Este proyecto de abolición -ya sea la abolición de las prisiones o la abolición del capitalismo- no es simplemente una negación. Es un proyecto generativo que requiere una construcción colectiva.Esto significa construir el apoyo social para los jóvenes LGBTQ2S+ dentro de las familias, las escuelas, las comunidades y otras instituciones; eliminar la discriminación contra las personas LGBTQ2S+ en la vivienda, el empleo y otros ámbitos; eliminar la falta de vivienda, ya que la vivienda es un derecho humano; poner fin a la criminalización del trabajo sexual; y proporcionar atención médica gratuita y que afirme el género para todos.La liberación de las personas LGBTQ2S+ está ligada a la lucha por la liberación de los negros, al igual que está ligada a la lucha por la justicia para los discapacitados. Nuestra liberación está ligada a la lucha contra el colonialismo y el capitalismo de los colonos en nuestro país y en todo el mundo.¡No a las jaulas! ¡No a las fronteras! No aceptaremos nada menos.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Book authored by youngest Global Innovator

first_imgTaylor Brumbaugh Facebook Taylor Brumbaugh Taylor Brumbaugh is a journalism major and business minor from Bedford, Texas. She enjoys online shopping and watching Brooklyn 99 in her free time. Her puppy, a labradoodle named DIxie, is her world. Go Cowboys! printTCU celebrated the release of “Be a Girl Champion,” a book written and illustrated by the youngest-ever TCU Global Innovator. The book, which was launched by the TCU Press, is written by Chloe Reynaldo and consists of a compilation of stories about seven girls in Southeast Asia. The anecdotes depict the hardships the girls have faced with the intention of spreading awareness.In the stories, Reynaldo not only details the girl’s adversities but also describes how they came out of their situations wiser and stronger. She always ends a story with her core message: “Listen to her. Know her worth. Be a girl champion.” “I believe the book will contribute to the global conversation about women’s rights and the struggles to attain those fundamental human rights, and it will truly champion young women throughout the world who may find themselves in the stories that Chloe presents in her book,” said Melinda Esco, a production manager for the TCU Press.In 2016, at the age of 16, Reynaldo became the youngest person to be awarded the TCU Global Innovator Prize, which includes a grant of up to $25,000. The grant was used to fund the book, which celebrates advocacy, gender equality and the power of girls. Chloe Reynaldo is the youngest-ever TCU Global Innovator. Photo courtesy of Kylie Crane, TCU Graphic Design alumna. The prize was awarded by the Discovering Global Citizens organization.James English, the co-chair of the Global Innovators Initiative at the time, said Reynaldo was chosen to be a recipient because “the committee was impressed with [her] grassroots work on gender equality and youth empowerment in her home country.” Reynaldo was nominated to be a recipient of the Global Innovator Prize by Jan Ballard, an instructor for the department of design in the College of Fine Arts. “She is an amazing speaker, and an amazing young adult creating change in the world,” Ballard said. Reynaldo visited TCU in 2016 to receive her award and engage the campus in discussions about gender equality. During her visit, Reynaldo and Ballard decided “Be a Girl Champion” was the project in which they wanted to invest their time and grant money to further the work Reynaldo is doing in her home country. Reynaldo wrote and illustrated the book for three years while Ballard designed the layout and pagination. Men ignoring and sidelining girls, child marriage, workplace inequality, education, sexual exploitation, human trafficking and rape are some of the major rights issues represented in this book. Reynaldo and her TCU partner hope the book will spread awareness and inspire discussion about the challenges girls face. This semester, to promote the book and Chloe’s cause, Ballard challenged the upper-level students in her Professional Recognition for the Graphic Designer class to read the book and create Instagram posts about it. Mackenzie Malpass, a student in Jan Ballard’s design class, is working on her project. Photo by Taylor Brumbaugh“I was interested and eager about creating a social media post for the Chloe Reynaldo’s ‘Be A Girl Champion’ book – with all of the post combined, we have created a small way to support a giant effort to draw attention to the horrible reality some girls face,” Caroline Fischer, on of Ballard’s students, said. The young activist from the Philippines was chosen by the Asia and the Pacific section of the United Nations as the youngest delegate and speaker during the Women’s Month Summit held in Bangkok in 2016. She was also invited by Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon to the first-ever World Humanitarians Summit in Istanbul in 2015.Reynaldo has done work as a member of Y-PEER, a global youth peer education initiative pioneered by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), a network of youth organizations in the Philippines. Its members include young people, active peer educators, trainers and youth advocates for adolescent sexual and reproductive health.Now, Reynaldo is 19 and studying at a university in Manila to be a surgeon.Reynaldo will be the featured speaker at an International Day of the Girl event in Manila on Oct. 11 where “Be A Girl Champion” books and sarongs will be given to vulnerable young women in the Philippines. On Oct. 8, the department of women and gender studies and TCU Press sponsored a celebration for the book’s release in the atrium of Rees-Jones Hall.

Moscow reporter files complaint about attack in Chechnya, threats

first_imgThe day after the attack, local TV channels began relaying a propaganda campaign approving the attacks and even calling for Milashina and Dubrovina to be killed. “For what they are doing in Chechnya, they should not just be attacked but also killed,” said persons identified as “ordinary residents” on the Instagram accounts of Chechnya Sevodnya, Grozny-Inform and the Grozny public TV channel. Follow the news on Russia Читать на русском / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the impunity enjoyed by those who attacked  Moscow-based Russian journalist Elena Milashina during a visit to Chechnya earlier this month and have continued to threaten her, and calls for a transparent and effective investigation by the federal authorities.A reporter for the independent Moscow tri-weekly Novaya Gazeta, Milashina filed a complaint today with the federal Investigative Committee in Moscow against the people who attacked her in the lobby of her hotel in the Chechen capital of Grozny on 6 February and against those who subsequently threatened her, including the person who sent a threatening letter to the newspaper on 13 February. Milashina had gone to Grozny to cover the trial of a blogger who, without adding any comment, just posted a video of a neighbourood in the Grozny city centre entitled “How Kadyrov and his companions live.” So far, a police officer equipped with a disposable camera just took photos of the ground at the entrance to the hotel where, on the evening of 6 February, Milashina and Dubrovina were attacked by about 15 people, who threw them to the ground and hit them, while accusing them of “helping the Wahhabis.” RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists WomenImpunityViolence Until now, the Russian federal authorities have said they are not concerned by the attacks and threats against Milashina. This matter “is not a Kremlin problem,” Russian presidential spokesman Dmitri Peskov said on 10 February. It was “a matter for the regional police,” he added. June 2, 2021 Find out more News Credit: Anna Artemieva / Novaya Gazeta This letter, which advised Milashina to “forget Chechnya,” was sent by a woman who identifies herself on social networks as “Chechnya’s leading executioner” and as a “killer” working directly for Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who rules the autonomous Russian republic with an iron hand. But the Chechen police have done almost nothing. According to Milashina, they have yet to request the recordings of the 27 CCTV cameras of the Hotel Continent, where the attack against Milashina and human rights lawyer Marina Dubrovina took place. News “This impunity for violence and for public calls for journalists to be murdered is intolerable,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “We call on the Russian authorities to guarantee the security of Elena Milashina and fellow journalists who are particularly threatened by the Chechen authorities. Although an autonomous republic, Chechnya is part of the Russian Federation. It falls to Moscow to conduct a transparent and effective investigation in this territory, in order to comply with its international obligations.” RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists WomenImpunityViolence A total of five Novaya Gazeta journalists have been murdered with complete impunity in the past 20 years: Igor Domnikov in 2000, Yuri Shchekochikhin in 2003, Anna Politkovskaya in 2006 and Natalya Estemirova and Anastasia Baburova in 2009.

If you keep a person behind bars for minor reasons, that is also torture”, said Justice Deepak Gupta, former Judge of the Supreme Court of India at a webinar organized by LiveLaw on the topic “Custodial Deaths: Need For An Anti-Torture Law”. The webinar featured the presence of Justice Deepak Gupta, former Union Law Minister Dr. Ashwini Kumar and National Editor of Political Affairs at Hindustan Times Sunetra Choudhary. It was moderated by Advocate Avani Bansal. The discussion commenced with a reference to the brutal custodial deaths of the father-son duo in Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu, wherein the two were picked up by the police for keeping their shop open for 15 minutes after curfew hours. The duo was mercilessly beaten up in custody, which led to their death, however, the police attempted to cover up the same by releasing a statement which said that they had succumbed to heart illnesses. In this context, Bansal asked Justice Deepak Gupta about how, despite the existence of a series of guidelines underlining rights of a prisoner which were laid down in the DK Basu v. State of West Bengal, there was a challenge to its implementation. Justice Gupta responded to the question by stating that though there was no questioning of the need of an anti-torture, the same could only be brought about by the Parliament and not the Supreme Court (in reference to the petition filed by Dr. Ashwani Kumar seeking for an anti-torture law, which had been dismissed by the Supreme Court). “The Court can only decide what is legal and what is not legal. I have been called an activist judge, and I’m happy about that. But, we can only be activists within the four corners of law.” The former Supreme Court Judge further highlighted that the need of the hour was the proper implementation of the existing laws. “In DK Basu Case, the Court thought that we could give certain suggestions to the Parliament. In Tamil Nadu, there are Rules which have been framed which state that the accused must be produced physically before being remanded. You have that Rule, but it was violated.””Let’s first implement the law as we have it. The investigations, the prosecutions are not fair; these must be rectified first”, he said.Justice Gupta also underlined the fact that majority of the cases were against the poor, and not the privileged. He stated that there was a need to reform the investigations, the prosecution and to first implement the law as we have it. “Even during COVID times, we see cases of police brutality and the police being helpful. But, the former is more and it’s against the poor. In the Tamil Nadu case, they had kept the shop open for 15 extra minutes? Was it that serious an offence?”Justice Gupta: Police does not attack the privileged. Let’s first implement the law as we have it. The investigations, the prosecutions are not fair; these must be rectified first.— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) July 3, 2020 In response to the role and accountability of Magistrates when there is excess of authority on behalf of the police, Justice Gupta commenced his answer by iterating that there was a need for a change in mindset before bringing in an anti-torture law. Referring to the shocking Hyderabad Encounter case where the rape and murder accused were shot to death by the police in an alleged attempt to flee, Justice Gupta said, “We have a fair trial to Kasab, then why not to them?” Also Read : Can’t Let Muscularity Replace Constitutionality, Senior Adv Ashwini Kumar On Custodial Torture Justice Gupta commented on the legal accountability if a Magistrate is in violation of Rules by stating that the High Court should supervise the same as they have the right to do so.  “Article 21 of the Constitution says that no person can be deprived of life or personal liberty except by procedure established by law. Now what does Section 167 of CrPC say? The Magistrate will decide whether to release an accused on bail or whether to remand the accused in judicial or police custody. The High Courts have the right to take action. They must do so, and if they do, the rest will fall in line.”  Justice Gupta further stated that the Courts were reluctant to give bail to people as they thought, “Yeh toh criminal hain, isse jail mein rehene do.” “Torture is just not physical torture. If you keep a person behind bars for minor reasons, that is also torture. I also feel that there has to be some accountability when it comes to higher posts”. Justice Gupta concluded the webinar by stating that the Hyderabad Encounter case had been very disturbing, and there was a need to train the police authorities in a better manner, before instituting comprehensive reforms to the statutes.He also spoke about the need for imparting better skills to the police for investigation of crimes, so that they don’t feel tempted to use third degree methods against accused.”If the police are trained in a better manner, then even our existing police can do better..The police have very little training; they have no forensic training. We have to divide law and order, and there are so many who do VIP duty and are rendered useless.” he said. Next Storylast_img read more
