Threatened by eviction from their homes, that too amid a global pandemic, the applicants have prayed that the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Trust (DUSIB) be directed to conduct a demand survey of the JJ clusters, undertaking in-situ redevelopment and rehabilitation. INC’s Ajay Maken Moves SC Against Order To Demolish 48,000 Jhuggis Without Provisions To Rehabilitate 2.4 Lakh Affected Dwellers It is submitted that out of the total 196 JJ clusters on the land of DUSIB, MCD and Govt. of NCT and its agencies, demand surveys of total 158 JJ clusters have been completed leaving 38 JJ Clusters. However, if the same is not completed, affected parties cannot be rehabilitated. They further pointed out that they work in the markets and industrial areas near their residence and their eviction thereof will make it very difficult to earn their livelihood. The applicants are also aggrieved for not having received an opportunity of hearing before the Court. They submitted that in 2016, the Director of the Railway Board had promised that no demolition would be carried out by them without joint notice by the representatives of DUSIB and Railways and without Rehabilitation plan for eligible JJ dwellers. However, the eviction order of the Top Court deprives them of such benefit. Moreover, they submitted, the United Nations Human Rights Special Procedures’ COVID-19 Guidance Note categorically mentioned that the States must “Declare an end to all evictions of anyone, anywhere for any reason until the end of the pandemic and for a reasonable period of time thereafter… in conformity with their obligations under human rights law.” SC Order Evicting Slum Dwellers Violates Their Right To Life: Law Students Send Letter Petition To CJI And Other Judges The application has been filed by Advocate on Record, Lubna Naaz and Advocate Dr. Ragini Nayak. Senior Advocate Salman Khurshid will appear on behalf of the impeaders. Click Here To Download Application Read Application Next Storylast_img read more

Luther Burbank wins state honor

first_imgThe campus, which has about 1,000 seventh- and eighth-graders, received the recognition in 1985 and 1994. But Principal Anita Schackmann said there is more work ahead. Burbank Middle’s score on the state Academic Performance Index – 755 points – is slightly behind the Burbank Unified School District’s other two middle schools. Still, Schackmann said the school, which has a larger portion of the district’s financially disadvantaged and English-learning students, has made strides. Other local schools receiving the honor include Rosemont Middle School in Glendale, which was previously recognized in 1986, 1990, 1994 and 2003. The following schools from the Los Angeles Unified School District also received the award: Nobel Middle/Nobel Math Science Technology Magnet in Northridge; Robert Millikan Middle School & Performing Arts Magnet in Sherman Oaks; Valley Alternative Magnet in Van Nuys; George K. Porter Middle/Gifted Magnet in Granada Hills; High Tech High-Los Angeles in Lake Balboa; and Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy in Wilmington. BURBANK – For the teachers of Luther Burbank Middle School, giving up their lunch lounge to make room for a science lab was just part of the job. This act, along with improving test scores, won the campus the distinction Monday as a California Distinguished School, one of 171 middle and high schools statewide recognized with the award this year. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell broke the news before two dozen teachers in a surprise visit. “They’re making their work relevant to the real world,” he said, pointing to the school’s culinary arts program. “It’s obviously a very dedicated, hard-working staff. They’ve given up their cafeteria – their faculty lounge – so it could be science labs that can be used while the school is being modernized.” [email protected] (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Eritrea among10 countries cited for extreme media censorship Watchdog

first_imgWashington DC: Eritrea is the world’s worst country for press censorship, a media watchdog said Tuesday in a report which also cites extreme measures in nine other countries including North Korea, China and Saudi Arabia. Under the three worst regimes — Eritrea, North Korea, and Turkmenistan — the media “serves as a mouthpiece of the state, and any independent journalism is conducted from exile,” said a report by the US-based Committee to Protect Journalists.

Saudi Arabia, China, Vietnam, and Iran were cited for “jailing and harassing journalists and their families, while also engaging in digital monitoring and censorship of the internet and social media,” the group said. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe rankings were based on factors including restrictions on privately owned or independent media; criminal defamation laws; restrictions on the dissemination of false news; blocking of websites; surveillance of journalists by authorities; license requirements for media; and targeted hacking or trolling. “The internet was supposed to make censorship obsolete, but that hasn’t happened,” said CPJ executive director Joel Simon. “Many of the world’s most censored countries are highly wired, with active online communities. These governments combine old-style brutality with new technology, often purchased from Western companies, to stifle dissent and control the media.” The report covers 10 countries where the government tightly controls the media, including Equatorial Guinea, Belarus, and Cuba. It noted that in other countries including war-ravaged nations such as Syria, Yemen, and Somalia, conditions for the media are “extremely difficult, but not necessarily attributable solely to government censorship.” In Eritrea, the report noted, the state retains a legal monopoly of broadcast media and journalists’ alternative sources of information, such as the internet or satellite broadcasts of radio stations in exile, are restricted via government-controlled internet services. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has stepped up the use of radio signal blockers and advanced radio detection equipment to prevent people from sharing information, CPJ said. The group said Saudi Arabia’s already-repressive environment for the press has “suffered sharp deterioration” under de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, according to the report. China has the most sophisticated censorship apparatus, according to CPJ, which noted that Chinese internet users are blocked by the “Great Firewall” and that authorities monitor domestic social media networks and conduct surveillance of international journalists.last_img read more
