Display to honor Gazan children killed by Israel

first_imgDes Moines, IowaThe American Friends Service Committee will honor the victims of Israel’s 2014 military assault on Gaza with the “Gaza Pinwheel Memorial Display,” to be exhibited here during the week of Aug. 9-16.The memorial will feature 521 black pinwheels, each bearing the name of one of the 521 Palestinian children who were killed by the Israeli military’s “Operation Protective Edge” during the summer of 2014.The United Nations Independent Commission of Inquiry on the 2014 Gaza conflict reported on June 22, 2015: “The 2014 hostilities saw a huge increase in firepower used in Gaza, with more than 6,000 airstrikes by Israel and approximately 50,000 tank and artillery shells.”In 51 days of merciless bombing, over 2,100 people were killed, over 11,000 injured, and thousands of houses, schools and hospitals lay in ruins. The AFSC worked with local Palestinian artists in Gaza to help create the memorial following the assault.AFSC organizer Katie Huerter told WW: “It is important to me that we continue to humanize Gazans and not reduce their suffering to numbers and statistics. Pinwheels represent the childhood that was stolen, and the hope that the spirit of these children will continue in the Palestinian resistance movement.”The exhibit will be on display for public viewing on the front lawn outside the AFSC Iowa office, located at 4211 Grand Ave. in Des Moines, from 12 noon on Aug. 9 to 1 p.m on Aug. 15.“We also hope to use this powerful display to call attention to Israel’s attack on Gaza and the Gaza siege,” Huerter added, “to demand accountability for rights violations that occurred in Gaza, to call for an arms embargo on Israel, and to open conversations about boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaigns.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Hundreds of journalists forced into exile in five years since start of US-led invasion of Iraq

first_img Receive email alerts Follow the news on Iraq March 19, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Hundreds of journalists forced into exile in five years since start of US-led invasion of Iraq December 16, 2020 Find out more The first-ever detailed report on the plight of Iraqi journalists who have been forced into exile was released by Reporters Without Borders today, the eve of the fifth anniversary of the start of the US-led invasion of Iraq. Most of these journalists fled to Jordan or Syria after receiving threats or surviving murder attempts. Hundreds are trying to live a normal life again in Amman or Damascus, or in some cases in cities in Europe and North America.“These journalists are safe again after escaping the hell of Iraq, the world’s deadliest country for the media,” the press freedom organisation said. “But exile does not mean the end of their problems. Most of the journalists who flee Iraq do not find work. Many have to give up journalism. All or nearly all of them are living from hand to mouth, alone or with their families.“Syria and Jordan are overwhelmed by the influx of Iraqi refugees. The countries of Europe, North America and the rest of the Arab world should also accept Iraqi refugees and should urgently adopt policies to make this possible. France, in particular, should make an effort. A total of 9,300 Iraqis filed asylum requests in Sweden in the first quarter of 2007, after getting visas to go there. Only 93 did so in France in the same period.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Despite all our letters to the relevant ministry, four Iraqi journalists were refused French visas last October.”Iraqi journalists are targeted by Sunni and Shiite militias, by Al-Qaeda, by the authorities, including the police, and by the US-led coalition forces. A total of 210 journalists and media assistants have been killed since March 2003. The Iraqi interior ministry has initiated investigations into their deaths but only an insignificant number of these investigations have resulted in arrests.Journalists are also the targets of abduction by groups that are politically motivated or are just seeking ransom payments. Reporters Without Borders has recorded 87 abductions of journalists since the start of the war. The fate of 15 kidnapping victims, one of them British, is not known. Fred Nérac, a French cameraman working for the British television news company ITN, is still missing. Caught in crossfire between US and Iraqi forces on the second day of the invasion, his body has never been found.Reporters Without Borders met with many exiled Iraqi journalists for this report. One was a correspondent for the Spanish news agency EFE who decided to leave immediately with his wife and two children after seeing his name among a list of names on a poster on the wall of his local bakery, in an Al Qaeda-controlled neighbourhood of Baghdad.It also met with a veteran cameraman who did not want to be identified for fear of reprisals. “I learned in May 2007 that the Mahdi Army was asking questions about me in my neighbourhood,” he said, referring to a Shiite militia led by Moqtada al Sadr that is involved in ethnic cleansing in mixed neighbourhoods in Baghdad. “I am a journalist. I worked for a US TV station and I am Sunni. So I was a target for them. I decided at once to leave the city. I went to Syria.”Another journalist, Hussein Al Maadidi, left after incurring the wrath of the Iraqi authorities and US military by reporting that US marines deliberately shot women and children in reprisal for the killing of a marine in Haditha, in the western province of Al Anbar, in November 2005. “The police searched my home 23 times,” he said. “I never went home during the last two years. I even worked under another name to avoid police reprisals. My articles about what is really happening in the west of the country upset them.” He left Iraq in October 2007.The report says: “Iraqi journalists are like the rest of their compatriots. Many have gone into exile because they have been targeted, threatened and kidnapped, or because they are tired of a security situation that is a still fraught. Jordan is the preferred exile destination for Iraqi journalists. It is still the place where they can best get by. Syria is a tougher place for the refugees. The authorities in both Amman and Damascus allow Iraqi journalists to work freely as long as they limit themselves to covering Iraqi affairs and do not criticise the host countries.”Only a very small proportion of the exiled Iraqi journalists in Europe manage to keep working in journalism. Ahmed Al-Allef was a fixer for many foreign news media including the Paris-based daily Le Monde. Now in France, he wants to go back to studying journalism with the long-term goal of working for a French news organisation. He says he is aware of all the difficulties he is facing. “I have lost my home, my car and my savings,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “My family is spread over the four corners of the globe. Nonetheless, I want to start a new life and I am doing my best to achieve it by learning French.” Supported by leading European news media, he managed to obtain refugee status in seven months.

The Greater Ocean City Theatre Company is presenting NUNSENSE 10/7-10/9

first_imgOcean City, NJ – The Greater Ocean City Theatre Company is presenting the international musical comedy sensation, NUNSENSE this October 7 and 8 at 7:30 PM and October 9 at 2:00 PM. The show is being directed/choreographed by acclaimed regional theatre director Dann Dunn (director of OCTC’s WEST SIDE STORY and DAMN YANKEES) with Musical Direction by the talented Andrew Hink.NUNSENSE, the perennial crowd-pleaser and second-longest-running Off-Broadway show in history is the perfect fall family entertainment featuring five outstanding and professional actresses, and one puppet as the wacky Little Sisters of Hoboken.Playwright/Composer/Lyricist Dan Goggin’s story of five desperate nuns trying to raise enough cash to bury four sisters who died of food poisoning and are being kept on ice, has been called “habit forming.”What could be lighter theatrical fare than five dancing, singing nuns in a sweet farce of a musical? But there are more poignant issues at the core of this wonderful and wacky musical. Each nun reveals, to the audience – not to their Sisters – long held aspirations or personal stories they’ve kept to themselves. Playwright and composer Dan Goggin said that each of these characters is based on a nun he knew growing up Catholic.The original production of Nunsense opened in 1985 at the Off-Broadway Cherry Lane Theatre, moving to the Douglas Fairbanks Theater for the majority of its ten year run. It ran for 3,672 performances, becoming the second longest running Off-Broadway show in history (after The Fantasticks). By the time it closed, it had become an international phenomenon translated into at least 26 languages with more than 8,000 productions worldwide.The OCTC Production features a terrific cast of musical theatre performers who have a strong background in comedic flair.SHANNON AGNEW (Sister Mary Regina, Mother Superior) is elated to return to the OCTC! She is a writer, director, and actor for: Sundog Theatre Co.; Millbrook Playhouse; Duplex (NYC); Beautiful Soup (NYC); Favorite roles include Ursula The Little Mermaid,  Performer Forbidden Broadway, Myrtle Mae Simmons Harvey feat. Elinor Donahue, Betty Jean The Marvelous Wonderettes, Judith Boeing Boeing, Mud Donahue My Vaudeville Man (regional premiere), Emma Goldman Ragtime, Charlotte I Am My Own Wife, Stepmother/Fairy Godmother Cinderella, Judy Garland Bad Blood (David Simpatico).EBONY DELANEY (Sister Mary Hubert, Mistress of Novices) is thrilled to be making her OCTC debut as Sister Mary Hubert! Born and raised in Indianapolis, IN Ebony graduated from AMDA NY (American Musical and Dramatic Academy) in 2010 and had the amazing opportunity performing with The Walt Disney Company for over five years. Her Regional roles include Lorraine, All Shook Up; Daisy Dog, The Ohmies; Tina Turner/Ens, The Wedding Singer to name a few.JEN MORRIS (Sister Mary Amnesia) is thrilled to be returning to OCTC where she was last seen in Shrek!  In addition, she is forever grateful for this opportunity to rejoin the Little Sisters of Hoboken having last worked with Sister Mary Annette in Nunsensations! at Cohoes Music Hall.  Other past favorite roles include:  Shout! (Red Girl) at Cornwell’s Dinner Theatre; Little Women (Amy March) at Nebraska Theatre Caravan; Winter Wonderland (Samantha) at Thin Air Theatre Company; Kiss Me Kate (Ensemble/US Lois Lane) at Arizona Broadway Theatre; Pinkalicious (Dr. Wink/Alison) at Vital Theatre Company; Grease (Frenchy) at Millbrook Playhouse.  A proud NYU/Tisch graduate with her BFA in Drama/Musical Theatre.ERIKA WASKO (Sister Mary Leo) is so happy to be back home at OCTC this fall after a short break from the summer season filled with flying, dancing, choreographing, directing, and lots of fun! When not performing with OCTC, Erika enjoys cirque training in lyra and hammock, and writing music with her guitar.ELIZABETH WORLEY (Sister Robert Anne) is so excited to return to Ocean City for this hilarious show! Having just spent the summer here performing in West Side Story, The Little Mermaid and Frog & Toad. You may have also seen her in the past two Christmas shows as well as The 2016 Valentine’s Day Cabaret and The Sounds of Hollywood for 2016 First Night Celebration. She is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, but now calls NYC home.Just like the tagline says, Nunsense is habit forming; so anyone who wants to be a part of the fun should immediately call the Box Office at 609-399-6111 or visit ocnj.us/boxoffice.
