Internet : a weapon on mass revolution ?

first_img News Download the article in PDF Organisation Almost 500 bloggers were arrested in 2008 because of their online activity. Gamal Eid, Director of the Arabic Network for Human Rights in Cairo said, “It was the worst year since 1952”, the date on which Egypt theoretically became a democracy.

The same day, members of a group on the social networking site Facebook were arrested for having passed on information about the strike. 1,254 strikes are known to be organised in the country between 6 April and 31 December 2008, despite the fact that they are illegal. Agence France-Presse correspondent in Cairo, Mona Salem described the 6 April movement as a “rare” moment in contemporary Egyptian history. Having covered the story for the agency, she believes the interest of the movement “does not lie in its results, because nothing has changed. It simply shows that young people without any particular political affiliation care about what is going on in their society”. This nationalist upsurge has puzzled the government, which has been caught off its guard. Social networking sites can be used as a means of getting out protest messages and the Internet represents an invaluable space for the new Egyptian generation since it is gradually replacing the unions and political campaigning in the universities. “The government is like an octopus reaching out its tentacles to try to find a guilty party every time it is criticised. The Internet helps us to make our protest better known. It doesn’t matter that there wasn’t any demonstration in one city. Thanks to this means of communication, it can take place in another”, one “6 April” blogger told Reporters Without Borders. الإنترنت: سلاح الثورة الشاملة؟ Since 6 April 2008, many Egyptian Internet users have been tirelessly communicating a message that their society must change. Having grown up under the state of emergency law that prevents them from expressing themselves freely, they have also been the first in line for harassment from the authorities. More than 500 of them were arrested in 2008, because of the content of their online posts. The Internet has been a background clamour in Egyptian political life since the 2005 legislative elections. It’s a buzz that is attracting more and more Egyptians. The reputation of the local blogopshere is growing at the same speed as the numbers of its enthusiastic users. Today the country has the highest Internet penetration rate on the African continent (20% of the population regularly goes online).The fact that young Egyptians are turning to the Internet in ever greater numbers has led to the authorities’ stepping up their surveillance of this group. Security agents now throng the stock exchange district of the capital (Borsa Street) listening in to bloggers talking about “revolution”, “change”, “anger”, and the date of 6 April 2009.A call went out in 2009 for 6 April to become a day of “anger”. Every means of communication has since been pressed into service to spread the message far and wide, including slogans scrawled on bank notes and thousands of text messages sent to random phone numbers. The young Facebook users have no political experience and their real numbers are unknown. But that is their strength. Since any type of meeting is banned under the state of emergency law which the country has been under for 28 years, the Internet allows meetings to be held through a computer.If you can’t control the Internet, intimidate its users “We have an independent press but it doesn’t break any rules. We post photos and film on our blogs to break those rules. It is a bit like letting the genie out of the lamp, which can never go back into it”, said Wael Abbas, one of Egypt’s most emblematic bloggers. It was he who exposed one of the biggest scandals of the decade, by posting videos on his blog in January 2007, showing two police officers carrying out acts of torture in a Cairo police station, almost certainly leading to their conviction and being sent to prison, something which has not happened in the country for more than 20 years. Many young people started blogging because they were inspired by his example. Since the development of the Internet trend, the screw has been tightening around telecommunications. Since 2008, Egyptians have been unable to get an unregistered telephone line but the control is not total. New rules are now in force under which users of WiFi now have to pay for a connection, for which they need to provide an email address to have the password and user name sent. Moreover, a draft law is under debate in Parliament about Net regulation, providing for prison sentences for “abusive Internet use” and for “publication of multi-media content without government permission”. But the bloggers have continued their work. Blogger Mohammed Adel, who was held for four months for posting articles online and taking up a political position on the Israel-Palestinian question, has not given up. To date, he still does not know where he was held. It was his fourth arrest in two years, but he continues the fight.

It is pushing at the limits of dissidence. “In Egypt, dissidence is being homosexual or undermining established moral order”, says Iman Farag. “It has nothing to do with young people being concerned about the future of their country, who learn about politics from books. Perhaps that is their “revolution”. Compared to countries seen as repressive like China, Vietnam or, closer, Tunisia, Libya and Saudi Arabia, the Egyptian regime does not see these young people as dissidents. Activists who use this network do not hide themselves and their means of communication rely on completely open viral techniques.

Strong criticism of flood risk group

first_imgNewsLocal NewsStrong criticism of flood risk groupBy Alan Jacques – April 15, 2016 692 Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Advertisement Print Maurice Quinlivan TDSINN Féin TD for Limerick, Maurice Quinlivan, has strongly criticised the interdepartmental group set up to work with the OPW for the management of flood risk after it emerged that it didn’t meet for four years and the main group for almost six years.Deputy Quinlivan said that this was wholly irresponsible and unacceptable when so many families were driven from their homes by the floodwaters.“To the people of Corbally, King’s Island, Castleconnell, other flooded parts of Limerick, this is not good enough. Families were driven from their homes by rising flood waters, others only remained through the sterling work of the emergency services and the decency of neighbours”, he said. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “I had dealings with the head of the interdepartmental group, Brian Hayes MEP, when he came to Limerick in 2014. He guaranteed me that we would have all the funding we needed to make sure that the flooding like we saw in King’s Island wouldn’t happen again.“Limerick never saw Brian Hayes or any funding after that”, Deputy Quinlivan declared.“There has to be a serious look at how we approach flooding and flood prevention in this country. Sinn Féin has already put forward the idea of a Shannon River Management body. Firstly though, the flood management group need to offer an explanation to the Irish people for the dereliction of their duty.”by Alan [email protected] WhatsApp WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Twitter TAGSfloodinglimerickMaurice Quinlivan TDOffice of Public Works (OPW)Sinn Fein center_img Previous article#nowbooking The Buzzcocks 40 years going steadyNext articleBallyneety man helps rebuild lives in the Philippines Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Linkedin Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Facebook Email Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more

The most worrisome issue being that a number of them were asked to vacate their rooms and consequently have nowhere to go.Taking note of the submissions made in the plea, Justice Bhushan highlighted the grievance and stated that “the petition says North-Eastern people are facing difficulties as others mistook them to be Chinese.”Appearing for the Government, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta informed the Bench that there were Helplines in place specifically to redress such grievances. “All those Helplines are dead”, Gonsalves responded promptly.”There should be awareness. When people are locked in, there are difficulties that arise. However, something needs to be done”, remarked Justice Kaul, suggesting that the lockdown is necessary, but it comes with certain difficulties. However, it is important to spread more awareness amongst people so they do not mistreat anyone, the Bench seemed to suggest.The Solicitor went on to assure the Bench that the Government would look into the issue and take care. With this assurance, the Bench deemed it appropriate to not interfere and disposed of the matter.”The SG assures us to take care of all points mentioned in the petition. We dispose of the petition”, concluded Justice Bhushan.Supreme Court is hearing a plea highlighting adversities faced by North Eastern Indian, who are being mistaken for Chinese People and being discriminated against in light of the #COVID19 pandemic.— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 8, 2020Next Storylast_img read more

Officials confirm shark attacked boy at Long Island beach

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The bites that a 13-year-old boy sustained in the waters around the barrier island off Long Island’s South Shore resulted from a shark attack, New York state officials confirmed on Friday.But experts have been unable to determine the species based on the size and condition of a tooth fragment recovered from the boy, authorities said, adding that the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will return it to the teen at his request.The beaches on Fire Island had reopened Thursday morning, a day after the boy and a 12-year-old girl suffered large fish bites in the area.Lifeguards were on duty from 11 a.m. at Atlantique Beach, where the 13-year-old boy, Matthew Donaldson, was bitten. The National Park Service surveyed Sailors Haven Beach, where the 12-year-old girl, Lola Pollina, was bitten, and reopened that beach. The two beaches are fewer than 5 miles apart.The DEC made no mention of Lola’s bites.New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had dispatched Basil Seggos, the DEC commissioner, to Suffolk County to investigate whether it was indeed a shark that had bitten the two children.

Uber driver who allegedly groped customer charged with kidnapping, wire fraud

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — An Uber driver has been charged in federal court after allegedly kidnapping a woman, groping her after she fell asleep and then charging more than $1,000 for the ride after abandoning her on the side of a highway.Harbir Parmar, 24, of Howard Beach, New York, was charged in White Plains Federal Court with kidnapping and wire fraud, officials with the Southern District of New York said on Tuesday.On Feb. 21, a woman from White Plains requested an Uber in Manhattan to take her home, according to a complaint filed with the FBI. Parmar picked up the woman around 11:30 p.m., and she fell asleep in the back seat.Parmar stands accused of changing the destination in the app to Boston, according to the FBI complaint. When the woman woke up, the vehicle was parked on the side of the road and Parmar had joined the woman in the backseat, placing his hand under the front of her shirt. As she reached for her phone to call for help, Parmar grabbed her phone and refused to give it back to her.Parmar returned to the driver’s seat and continued driving, according to the complaint. The woman asked she be taken home or to a police station, but Parmar refused, dropping her off along a highway in Connecticut around 1:45 a.m.The woman said she memorized the car’s license plate and went to a nearby convenience story seeking help. The next morning she saw that she’d been charged $1,047.55 for the ride.“As alleged, Harbir Parmar was hired to transport a woman from Manhattan to her home in White Plains. Instead, Parmar kidnapped, terrorized and assaulted the woman before dumping her on the side of an interstate,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement. “No one — man or woman — should fear such an attack when they simply hire a car service.”If convicted, Parmar could face life in prison for the kidnapping charge and 20 years for the fraud charge.From December 2016 to February 2018, Parmar allegedly sent false information about customers’ destinations and overcharged them on more than 10 occasions. He’s also been accused of submitting false information related to cleaning fees. The improper charges totaled more than $3,600.Uber said that the company blocked Parma from using its app in February and that he hadn’t taken a trip since the incident. Uber also provided information to investigators.“What’s been reported is horrible and something no person should go through. As soon as we became aware, we immediately removed this individual’s access to the platform,” an Uber spokesperson told ABC News in a statement. “We have fully cooperated with law enforcement and will continue to support their investigation.”The woman’s fare was refunded within days, Uber added.Susanne Brody, a lawyer for Parmar, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from ABC News.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Suspect arrested in 1987 cold case killing of 22-year-old woman

first_imgFranklin County Sheriff(ST. CLAIR, Mo.) —  More than three decades after a 22-year-old woman was mysteriously found murdered in Missouri, a suspect has been identified and taken into custody.Kirby King, 64, was arrested on Monday, charged with second-degree murder in the death of Karla Jane Delcour, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.On June 24, 1987, Delcour’s body was found in a wooded area along a road near St. Clair, according to the sheriff’s office. She was “in a state of decomposition” and her wrists were bound, according to the sheriff’s office.Her death was ruled a strangulation by ligature, according to the sheriff’s office.When authorities retraced Delcour’s steps, they learned she was killed about three days before her body was found, according to the sheriff’s office. The crime took place at a home in Union, about 50 miles west of St. Louis, authorities said.Investigators interviewed possible suspects and witnesses, but no one was arrested and the case went cold for more than 30 years, authorities said.Last year, Franklin County investigators took another look at the cold case and began re-interviewing suspects and witnesses, authorities said.The interviews took investigators from Missouri to Texas to Arizona, according to the sheriff’s office.The sheriff’s office has not released what led to King’s arrest on Monday, but said, “we believe enough evidence existed to charge at least one person with her murder.”“Many details in her murder are not part of this release because there is a long way to go to reach justice for Karla Delcour and her family,” the sheriff’s office explained. “A premature release of information might hinder that for the family.”The sheriff’s office added, “Sometimes a fresh perspective combined with advances in science and technology aid in furthering an investigation when all original leads have been exhausted.”King’s bond was set at $100,000, officials said. He does not have an attorney listed and is due in court on Jan. 14 for a counsel status hearing.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
