SIMON MANN - THE MERCENARY - Part 1/2 | London Real FULL FREE EPISODE: https://londonreal.tv/simon-mann/ SUBSCRIBE ON YOUTUBE: http://bit.ly/SubscribeToLondonReal Simon Francis Mann (born 26 June 1952) is a British mercenary and former British Army officer. He served part of a 34-year prison sentence in Equatorial Guinea for his role in a failed coup d'état in 2004, before receiving a presidential pardon on humanitarian grounds on 2 November 2009. Mann was extradited from Zimbabwe to Equatorial Guinea on 1 February 2008, having been accused of planning a coup d'état to overthrow the government by leading a mercenary force into the capital Malabo in an effort to overthrow President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. Charges in South Africa of aiding a coup in a foreign country were dropped on 23 February 2007, but the charges remained in Equatorial Guinea, where he had been convicted in absentia in November 2004. He lost an extradition hearing to Equatorial Guinea after serving three years of a four-year prison sentence in Zimbabwe for the same crimes and being released early on good behaviour. Upon Mann's arrival in Equatorial Guinea for his trial in Malabo, public Prosecutor Jose Olo Obono said that Mann would face three charges – crimes against the head of state, crimes against the government, and crimes against the peace and independence of the state. On 7 July 2008, he was sentenced to 34 years and four months in prison by a Malabo court. He was released on 2 November 2009, on humanitarian grounds.

Buried beneath several kilometres of ocean, vast reserves of deep-water "pre-salt" oil lie off the southeast coast of Brazil. Experts say the fields, discovered in 2006, could yield a million barrels of crude per day within five years, potentially turning the country into one of the world's biggest exporters.VIDEOGRAPHIC

ZIMBABWE: ELECTIONS: PRESS CONFERENCE
 
03:55
English/Nat XFA Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's Zanu P-F party has warned that members of the opposition M-D-C will be barred from government positions. John Nkomo, Zanu P-F's national chairman says that under the constitution, Mugabe has the sole right to appoint his cabinet from those elected to parliament. Meanwhile, at a surprise meeting with Congolese President Laurent Kabila, Mugabe said Zimbabwean troops would be based in the Congo for "as long as necessary." Despite scattered reports of intimidation, Zimbabweans swarmed to polling stations on the final day of balloting. The high turnout was expected to favour the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, which was formed just nine months ago. It's seeking to oust President Robert Mugabe's ruling party, which has led Zimbabwe for all 20 years of its independence. But in a setback for the M-D-C, Zanu P-F Chairman John Nkomo said that as Mugabe has two years left on his term, he can legally appoint his own people to any new executive. John Nkomo said Mugabe will not step down unless the opposition gained a two-thirds majority in parliament and then changed the constitution to remove him. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The person who is going to appoint or who is going to build the new executive is the President. And that president is the president and first secretary of Zanu. Secondly, there is no way that Zanu is going to lose seats. Therefore you would expect that the president will still have Zanu people to appoint into government." SUPER CAPTION: John Nkomo, Chairman Zanu PF In response, M-D-C leader Morgan Tsvangirai said he will rely on the mandate of the people. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well, we don't rely on the benevolence of Mr Nkomo. We rely on the verdict of the people of Zimbabwe. If Nkomo wants and Zanu PF wants to form a minority government, let them be our guests. And see how it functions. But we are saying that the moment of instability is not required. We should be moving forward for the sake of this economy which is almost on its knees." SUPER CAPTION: Morgan Tsvangirai, MDC Leader Where there has been intimidation and violence, Tsvangirai said they should declare those constituencies null and void. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Our strategy then, is to ensure that those kind of constituencies where the people's will has been subverted, I think it is better to declare those constituencies null and void." SUPER CAPTION: Morgan Tsvangirai, MDC Leader Meanwhile, President Robert Mugabe held a surprise meeting to discuss the Congo war with Congolese President Laurent Kabila and Namibian President Sam Nujoma. The meeting came on the final day of voting in Zimbabwe's parliamentary election, the most hotly contested poll since the country's independence 20 years ago. Rebels took up arms in eastern Congo in 1998 to oust Kabila from power. Citing concerns about security along their borders with Congo, Rwanda and Uganda backed the rebels, while Kabila enlisted the support of Namibia, Angola and Zimbabwe. Mugabe's costly deployment of 11,000 Zimbabwe troops in Congo has further weakened an economy already crippled by an acute shortage of gasoline and the hard currency needed to import fuel. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well, for as long as is necessary (troops will stay in Congo) There is a peace process underway and that peace process will decide at what stage we will withdraw our forces - but not until we are guaranteed that the security of the Congo and the sustenance of the sovereignty of the Congo." SUPER CAPTION: President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe However, the ceasefire has been repeatedly broken, and no date has been set for sending in U-N observers.

Nigerian Oil Company Stikes Gold   Finds Huge Oil Deposits
 
06:02
Three indigenous oil and gas exploration firms -- Optimum, Afren and Lekoil -- yesterday announced a significant oil find in Oil Prospecting Lease, OPL 310, offshore Nigeria. The latest find, which has great potential to yield commercial oil, was made at Ogo-1 well after drilling 10,402 feet. The discovery has the potential to significantly boost Nigeria's oil reserve which currently stands at 37 billion barrels. Afren Plc said it had drilled a well to a total measured depth of 10,518ft (10,402ft true vertical depth subsea), and had encountered a gross hydrocarbon section of 524ft, with 216ft of net stacked pay. The firm added that the well was initially targeted to yield 78 million barrels of oil equivalent but based on evidence to date, targeted resources were likely to be significantly in excess of previous estimates. The company said further evaluation using wireline log analysis was currently underway prior to extending the well to a total measured depth of 11,800ft (11,684ft true vertical depth subsea) to target further high potential zones. "The Ogo-1 discovery, testing a four-way dipclosed structure in the Turonian, Cenomanian and Albian sandstone reservoirs, confirms the extension of the same Cretaceous sandstones that have yielded other significant discoveries along the West African Transform Margin," the company said in a statement. It added that: "Following the completion of drilling operations at Ogo-1, the partners intend to drill a planned side-track, Ogo-1 ST, which will test a new play of stratigraphically trapped sediments that pinch-out onto the basement high targeting 124 mmboe of gross P50 prospective resources." The completion of exploration and eventual commercial production would be beneficial to not only the Federal Government but also other stakeholders, including Optimum, Afren and Lekoil that have different participating and economic interests in the oil block. Specifically, participating interest in the block is Optimum on 60 per cent, Afren on 22.86 per cent and Lekoil on 17.14 per cent. Economic interest is Optimum on 30 per cent, Afren on 40 per cent and Lekoil on 30 per cent. The Chief Executive of Afren Plc, Mr. Osman Shahenshah, said the discovery of oil in the Ogo-1 well opened up a new oil basin in an under-explored region and represented a possible extension of the West African Transform Margin. According to Shahenshah, based on evidence to date, targeted resources are likely to be significantly in excess of previous estimates, with some highpotential zones still to be drilled. He said: "We look forward to working with our partners to realise the full potential of Ogo and our additional prospects on the license. "The Ogo-1 exploration success follows a series of recent discoveries, Okoro Field Extension, Ebok North Fault Block and Okwok in Nigeria and Simrit-2 and Simrit-3 on the Ain Sifni Block in the Kurdistan region of Iraq." Nigeria has not made significant oil and gas reserves in recent times as a result of low investment which is said to be a direct function of outdated legislations in the industry. For instance, the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB, targeted to make the industry more attractive to local and foreign investors, has been with the National Assembly in the last five years. Consequently, many investors have gone to invest in other countries that offer competitive legislations, incentives and policies. A top official of Stumberger confirmed at a recent industry conference in Lagos that many nations in the Gulf of Guinea, especially Angola, have attracted a lot of investments in the past few years. This, according to him, has culminated in the making of commercial oil and gas finds that are capable of boosting reserves and ranking of Angola as a major producer. The official tasked stakeholders, especially legislators, to make progress in order to complete work on the important bill targeted at restructuring the nation's oil and gas industry as well as attracting more investments to boost reserves as well as production capacity. However, a Lagosbased lawyer, Mr. Emeka Okwuosa, said the new PIB was a step in the right direction, a watershed reform that would change the landscape of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria. Okwuosa said the future was promising because the new PIB would be a good and excellent law, open up investment opportunities, unbundle the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, for better performance and result, and create a transparent, accountable and corruptfree energy regime.

Local Content Policy for Ghanaian Construction Industry
 
50:40
The Chairman of the AGI Construction Sector, Mr Rockson Dogbegah is interviewed about moves to develop a local content policy for the construction industry in Ghana. “Local content” is a value-laden concept which involves securing direct and indirect opportunities for employment and procurement of local goods and services, while at the same time fostering the development of local skills, technology transfer, and the use of local manpower and local manufacturing. The construction industry like the mining and petroleum industries contributes to the economic prosperity of Ghana. Between 2009 and 2013, construction contributed on average about 14.34 per cent to gross domestic product. Indeed the available data shows that its contribution to GDP consistently increased from 12.9 per cent in 2009 to 16.2 per cent in 2013. This trend shows that the construction industry is increasingly becoming more important to economic growth, although operating sub-optimally. These figures therefore suggest that better management of the construction industry could expand its contribution to national development. Unfortunately, the industry is plagued with many challenges including the lack of a regulatory and supervisory framework, underdeveloped technology and skills, lack of capacity, financial constraints, delayed payment for public procurements and a lack of a deliberate policy to develop the industry. As a result, foreign companies have executed most large-scale construction projects, since independence. This often leads to capital flight, lack of technology transfer and a lost of opportunity to built the capacity of local construction firms. Local content policies prescribed by the UN have been used elsewhere (i.e. US, Singapore, China, India) to develop construction industries. The creation of the new Ministry to oversee railway development is strategic, ambitious and refreshing. The Government’s plan to ensure that over time 70 per cent of public procurements in this area goes to local firms by way of local content development is also welcome. However, the plan is uncertain and needs to be concretised. Indeed, recognising its important to the sustenance of the construction industry, Nigeria finalised a local content bill for its construction industry in 2013. From Angola to Indonesia, Nigeria to Timor-Leste, Trinidad and Tobago to Zimbabwe, the theory behind this paradigm shift either in resource development or construction industry development is simple and laudable; the challenge is in the practice. The question we pose is simply: how can Ghana use local content policy to develop its construction industry? Where along the construction value chain can we find untapped local content opportunities? What are the potential constraints to the development of a local content policy for the construction industry and how can they be resolved?

Violence in Angola: testimony of Linda Moisés da Rosa

In the Lundas' diamond areas, in the northeast of Angola, local populations and artisanal miners are constant victims of torture and assassination. The complicity between the State, the army, the mining operators and the private security companies, has created a system of exploitation and repression over the local populations, who find themselves totally unprotected and without legal recourse. Linda Moisés da Rosa, a resident of Cuango, lost her two sons, in only two months, at the hands of soldiers of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA) and operatives of Teleservice, a private security company at the service of the diamond concessionary Sociedade Mineira do Cuango.

Boycott Leviev, 12-8-07, Dershowitz shops at Leviev
 
01:06
Despite NYC Palestinian rights protest, Dershowitz buys jewelry from settlement mogul Leviev New York, NY, Dec. 8 - Wealthy Madison Avenue holiday shoppers were greeted Saturday afternoon by boisterous music and dancing, as 60 New Yorkers protested in a growing campaign to boycott Israeli diamond magnate Lev Leviev over his settlement construction in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Participants performed a joyous dabke, a traditional Palestinian dance, and chanted to music from the eight-piece Rude Mechanical Orchestra. During the protest, Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz entered LEVIEV New York and emerged to jeers as he displayed a LEVIEV shopping bag to the crowd. Saturday's event was the third and largest protest outside LEVIEV New York since the store's November 13 gala opening. The protesters highlighted Leviev's abuse of marginalized communities in Palestine, Angola and New York. In the West Bank companies owned by Leviev have built homes in at least five Israeli settlements. These settlements carve the West Bank into disconnected bantustans, seize valuable Palestinian agricultural and water resources, and isolate Palestinian East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank, rendering the creation of a viable Palestinian state impossible. All Israeli settlements violate international law. Yesterday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned Israel against its plans to build new homes in Har Homa, one of the settlements where Leviev's company Danya Cebus is building. Midway through Saturday's protest Alan Dershowitz suddenly appeared in front of LEVIEV New York. "Just before he entered the store, I told Mr. Dershowitz, "you claim to be for peace, but you are deliberately putting money in the pockets of a man who builds settlements and prevents peace," explained Issa Mikel of Adalah-NY. "Dershowitz responded, 'Thank you for telling me about this place. I'm going to shop here from now on.' It's not surprising that Dershowitz is proud to support Israeli settlements, despite their illegality and immorality. Dershowitz is also a defender of torture, and has proposed that Israel destroy entire Palestinian villages." As Dershowitz emerged from the store holding high his LEVIEV shopping bag, he was met by loud chants of, "Alan, Alan, you can't hide, your support for Apartheid." New Yorkers were joined by members of the New Jersey Star dance troupe for likely the first ever Madison Avenue performance of the Palestinian folk dance dabke. Riham Barghouti of Adalah-NY explained, "Our dabke performance at Leviev's store was an affirmation of our identity as Palestinians, and of our refusal to accept Israel's efforts to cleanse us from our land and destroy our culture." Participants were reminded of the breadth of Leviev's abuses when a stream of cars decorated with Burmese flags and "Free Burma" banners drove by the protest honking their horns in support. In September, 2007 The Sunday Times in London reported that its undercover journalist was shown Burmese rubies for sale, allegedly "blood rubies" used to finance Myanmar's military junta. UPI reported in October that Leviev was warned by the EU to stop doing business with Myanmar or face sanctions. Protesters held signs saying, "Latkes not land theft", and "Dreidels not demolition and "Candles not confiscation." Ethan Heitner of Adalah-NY explained, "I can think of no better way to celebrate Hanukah than to shine a light on the abuses Leviev is committing around the world." Leviev mines diamonds in close partnership with Angola's repressive Dos Santos regime, and the security company Leviev employs in Angola has been accused of serious human rights abuses. In New York City, Shaya Boymelgreen, Leviev's US partner until this summer, has been the target of a campaign by local groups for employing underpaid, non-union workers in hazardous conditions, and violating housing codes to construct luxury apartments that threaten to displace lower-income residents.

Putting an End to Child Slavery in the Malian Mines
 
01:41
A Documentary Dedicated to Bringing Child Slavery Under the Public Spotlight → http://news.massmediaseo.com/putting-an-end-to-child-slavery-in-the-malian-mines/ → https://www.indiegogo.com/project/preview/c3e2506c → https://www.facebook.com/m...miners Award winning Director of the hit film Gold of Dangers has announced a new project. Moctar Menta, a young photographer, designer and filmmaker with a Masters Degree in “Multimedia” from the Conservatory of Art and Multimedia Balla Fasseke Kouyate of Bamako; is making a film to help save the young minors in Africa. The documentary depicts the horrors of children’s artisanal gold mining in Mali with all of its associated dangers, including a variety of anatomical strains abnormal for young children to procure. With the help of Lesky Draba, as photo director and François Tembely as his mining advisor. This all-star team is getting together to create a new documentary called “Bling – The Minor Miners” currently on Indiegogo. The film, aims to explore the high demand for gold, the export to Western and Middle Eastern countries, and the effect it has had on child labor and exploitation as reported by Human Rights Watch. The reason for this documentary is simple: these children’s lives are at stake. In order to create this documentary Menta needs two things: basic funding for crew, staff and equipment. And of course, the connections required to make this film a reality. He needs everyone to come out and support this cause. Sign up for an interview if you have something to offer the film or help make a connection that will enrich this documentary. And for those who cannot help with either, he knows just how far a Facebook “Like” or “Share” can travel. With support, these children may be able to go on and live a normal life. But it can’t be done without the help and collaboration of the international community. Be a part of the solution and bring these children back into a safe environment. Partner with us today by becoming a sponsor, consider a donation, or share with us on Facebook. The campaign is seeking to raise $25,000 to create the documentary “Bling – The Minor Miners”.

Who owns the FED and controls the US government through the economy. The Rothschilds and the Bank of England. The Rothschild Group controls governments, (the USA through the privately-owned Federal Reserve System) Its no big mystery now. The US Congress gave control of the goverment over to the (FED) private banks which means our country is not controlled by American citizens. (The Congress can take control away from the (FED) private bankers but they never will because the Congress is infested with politicians under the direct control of the FED,CFR etc. Many members of the Congress do the bidding of the CFR) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The underpinning of all major Multi-National Corporations begins with the Rothschild Banking & Mining interests: * Rothschild Group: Headquartered in London. Finances (in their words) "governments, corporations throughout the world" Here. The Rothschild Group has 47 offices world wide which include New York, Washington DC, Paris, Frankfort, Amsterdam, Rome, Johannesburg, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Madrid, and Hong Kong. ~ Under David René James de Rothschild, (b 1942), son of Guy de Rothschild (1909-2007), the Rothschild Group controls governments, (the USA through the privately-owned Federal Reserve System), financial institutions, mining industries, and Multi-National Corporations throughout the world. * De Beers Mining: Headquartered in Zurich Switzerland. Mines both gold and diamonds primarily in South Africa. (De Beers will not officially admit to "gold mining" because they fear accusations of being in control of the "gold standard.") ~ Offices world-wide include London, Johannesburg, Canada, Australia, Angola, India, and Brazil. David Renà James de Rothschild is Chairman Here. Nicky Oppenheimer is Co-Chairman Here. ~ Not only do the Rothschilds control the mining of South African gold through De Beers, they also control its price. In London, all gold bullion passes through the hands of three firms who govern the price of gold from day to day. These are N. M. Rothschild & Sons, Mocatta & Goldsmid, and Samuel Montagu & Co Here. ~ Together with the Oppenheimer family, the Rothshilds through their French subsidiary Imetal S.A. once again, under David Renà James de Rothschild, have mining interests not only in iron, platinum, copper, zinc, tin, and coal throughout the world.

Nigeria Budget 2016: Deficit set to reach $11B, capital expenditure to help revive economy
 
07:37
Nigeria will have to finance an increased budget deficit, twice as high to 11 billion dollars next year, as the government rolls out plans to revive an economy severely battered by falling crude prices. Africa's biggest economy will borrow as much as 4.5 billion dollars abroad and 4.9 billion dollars locally to fund the gap. Nigeria's economy has been hammered by a plunge in oil prices that have weakened the naira, delayed payments of civil servants and forced companies to lay off workers. The West African nation expects revenues of just under 20 billion dollars next year, with less than a quarter coming from oil revenues. The budget is based on an oil price of 38 dollars a barrel. Oil production would be 2.2 million barrels a day. Tax collection will be improved and non-oil industries such as agriculture and mining promoted.

Time for Compassion? Aging Political Prisoners Suffer From Illness, Long Solitary Confinement (1/2)

http://www.democracynow.org - As people around the world mark the holiday season, often recognized as a time of compassion, we host a roundtable discussion about the growing number of aging political prisoners in the United States convicted in the 1960s and 1970s who are seeking compassionate release, clemency or a pardon. In some cases, they are simply asking to be released into general population after decades of solitary confinement. Many have poorly treated diseases such as diabetes, while at least one has terminal cancer. Watch part 2 of this discussion: http://youtu.be/w8OSVtY1Tqg We are joined by Soffiyah Elijah, an attorney who has represented many political prisoners and successfully won the release Marilyn Buck in 2010 so she could live her final weeks in freedom before she died from cancer. Elijah also has a separate career as the executive director of the Correctional Association of New York, which monitors conditions in state prisons. We also speak with Jihad Abdulmumit, National Chairperson for the Jericho Movement; Juan Méndez, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment or Punishment, who has found the use of solitary confinement in U.S. prisons can amount to cruel and unusual punishment; and Matt Meyer, long-time leader of the War Resisters League who previously served as coordinator of the international Nobel campaign for Puerto Rican political prisoners. He co-wrote the introduction to "Oscar López Rivera: Between Torture and Resistance," and is the editor of "Let Freedom Ring: A Collection of Documents from the Movements to Free U.S. Political Prisoners."

Alleged victims of toxic waste protest for compensation

Wide of policemen approaching demonstrators 3. Demonstrators walking along street chanting 4. SOUNDBITE: (French) Demonstrator, No name given, vox pop: "We are powerless. We don''t have guns. As the president was democratically elected, it''s up to him to go and tell that Gohorou to give us our money." 5. Various of demonstrators shouting at policemen trying to push them back 6. SOUNDBITE: (French) Demonstrator, No name given, vox pop: "We need our money. We are sick from toxic waste and we want our money." 7. Wide of street with demonstrators and policemen with guns STORYLINE: Demonstrators marched through the streets of Ivory Coast''s main city Abidjan on Friday, demanding the payment of compensation in connection with the alleged dumping of toxic waste involving oil trading company Trafigura Beheer BV. The demonstrators claimed they suffered illnesses caused by the toxic waste that they say was dumped in Ivory Coast. Several thousand people sought medical treatment after a tanker chartered by Trafigura allegedly unloaded waste at several sites around Abidjan in August 2006. Trafigura has always denied legal liability for the incident and has said the waste was dumped by a local company it had employed to discharge the waste. Trafigura insists the waste was not toxic but had a mix of gasoline residues, water and caustic sodas used for cleaning, and that it had followed all correct procedures. It has also said that the waste could have caused "low level flu-like symptoms and anxiety," but denied it could have caused more serious illnesses. Trafigura agreed in September to a settlement with people who claim to have fallen ill after the incident. It agreed to pay 950 pounds (1,518 US dollars) for each person, but refused to admit legal liability. The demonstrators on Friday demanded that they be given the money, which Trafigura has paid out, but they say they have not yet received. The money is being held in a bank account and the demonstrators are waiting for a court to decide if it can be released. On Friday the court''s ruling was postponed for the fourth time. Trafigura has also paid Ivory Coast''s government 152 (m) million euros (197 (m) million US dollars) in 2007 to assist in cleaning up the waste without admitting responsibility.

This 'House of Justice' is meant to respond to the needs of the population of this community that have been deprived of their most basic rights for so long." 7. Mid of assembled media 8. SOUNDBITE: (French) Janet Sanderson, US Ambassador in Haiti: "'Caye Justice' (House of Justice) program that we are launching this morning is an important component of this vast program that will facilitate the access to justice services for all the residents of Cite Soleil. 'Caye Justice' program is not only for training judges and community leaders, but also aims to help resolve conflicts. Everyday conflicts, conflicts within families and among neighbours. Thank you very much and good luck!" 9. Zoom out of Anderson leaving news conference STORYLINE: Protesters set fire to a government building in Haiti's largest shanty town on Friday in an apparent effort to disrupt the inauguration of a US-backed project to help fight crime, witnesses and officials said. The attack on the Cite Soleil mayor's office came hours before the US ambassador and chief United Nations envoy to Haiti held an onsite ceremony to inaugurate the "House of Justice" initiative, a 550,000 US dollars project to provide legal services in the oceanside shanty town. A small group of men burned tires outside the entrance to the Cite Soleil mayor's office around 4:30 am local time (0930 GMT) before bystanders chased them away, according to witnesses. Damage from the flames and smoke stretched all the way to the roof of the three-story building, blackening a quarter of the first two stories' normally white facade. The interior was not damaged and no injuries were reported. Though the building sits on a main square near both the Cite Soleil entrance and a UN operations base, neither Haitian police nor UN troops were present at the time of the fire, witnesses and peacekeepers said. Cite Soleil assistant mayor Benoit Gustave blamed local criminals for the fire. But others said they believe it was set by political opponents of Cite Soleil Mayor Wilson Louis, who accuse him of corruption since taking office last year and are angry about his role in the justice initiative. UN peacekeepers and the mayor's office said they are investigating the incident. The initiative "House of Justice" is part of a 20 (m)million US dollars Defence Department-funded program to stabilise Cite Soleil, which was dominated by powerful gangs before they were rooted out by UN peacekeepers last year. Hedi Annabi, UN Secretary Representative in Haiti told reporters after the inauguration ceremony that "House of Justice" intends to "respond to the needs of the population of this community that have been deprived of their most basic rights for so long". Under the project, Haitian lawyers will be brought to the neighbourhood under UN guard while judges and community leaders will be trained to resolve conflicts in the overcrowded shanty town, the US embassy said. Janet Sanderson, US Ambassador in Haiti said the program is not only for training judges and community leaders, but "also aims to help resolve conflicts. Everyday conflicts, conflicts within families and among neighbours".

Extractive Industries in LATAM: Promises and Dilemmas of Oil and Mining Industries
 
01:23:34
For more on this event, visit: http://bit.ly/2zBkQ3d For more on the Georgetown Latin America Initiative: https://latinamerica.georgetown.edu October 27, 2017 | Extractive industries are essential components of the economies of many countries in the region. When projects are well implemented, preserve the rights of affected people and its benefits are well managed, extractive industries can contribute to sustainable development and economic opportunities. However, the impact of extractive industries can also represent a serious challenge to the people impacted negatively by their activities. In recent decades, the importance of extractives industries in Latin America and the Caribbean has increased, with countries seeking to provide a stable investment climate, diminishing legal and regulatory framework, and limiting taxes on private companies. This has accelerated rates of economic growth but it has also been accompanied by significant levels of corruption, social conflict and environmental damage, in some cases undermining democracy and the human rights of many people in the region. How can extractive industries and government regulation balance local expectations with national development plans and calibrate industry regulations and investment promotion? How can stakeholders (policymakers at all levels, civil society, multinational corporations) maximize the benefits of extracting resources, while minimizing the risks of corruption, resource-curse ills, violation of human rights and environmental degradation? How can a favorable investment/business environment be created without sacrificing long term national interests, or jeopardizing local goals and rights? This conference, organized by the different Latin American students’ organizations at Georgetown University and sponsored by Georgetown University’s Latin American Initiative, aims to bring together researchers, practitioners and community leaders from throughout the region that can help us think through this difficult yet poignant questions. Hence, taking the lead from the Latin American Studies Association’s call for a “dialogues of knowledge”, the conference aims to include the voices of indigenous, afro-descendants and other popular sectors in the discussion.

The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age
 
02:08:21
The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2010-04-14 - For the first time in recent memory, the CEOs of America's top two coal mining companies, and a leading international company, came to Capitol Hill to answer questions on their positions on climate change, clean energy policy, and the challenges that face their industry. "Just as our national energy policy is at a crossroads, so, too, is the coal industry," said Rep. Edward J. Markey, who chairs the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, the committee that hosted the CEOs. "Whether it's climate science, the viability of 'clean coal,' or safety concerns, I believe Congress requires answers from the coal industry on their ability to be a part of our clean energy future." As Congress continues to push for a comprehensive clean energy and climate bill, questions remain regarding the coal industry's position on the essential science of climate change and their potential to provide cleaner, lower-carbon fuel in the decades to come. The House-passed Waxman-Markey bill offered a pathway for coal to transition to carbon capture and sequestration technologies. The coal mining industry has seen significant developments over the last two weeks. A mining accident in West Virginia has renewed questions about the safety of coal extraction, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has offered new rules on the environmental and health impacts of mountaintop mining. TESTIMONY: Gregory Boyce, President and Chief Executive Officer, Peabody Energy Corporation; Steven F.
