Who is the ‘enemy’ that Manning ‘aided’?

first_imgB. ManningWhile the corporate media covered every word, gesture and animated cartoon promoting the defense of Trayvon Martin’s killer, it paid little attention to whistleblower Pfc. B. Manning’s defense. They did report that military trial judge, Col. Denise Lind, ruled July 18 that Manning could face “aiding the enemy” charges.This decision means Manning could face, atop a possible 154 years in prison for other charges, a “life without parole” sentence, should he be convicted of “aiding the enemy.”Regarding whistleblowers in general, it means that those wanting to expose the government’s crimes could face the death penalty.To illustrate the weaknesses of the judge’s decision, we summarize comments made by two legal experts.The first is former chief military prosecutor at Guantánamo, retired Col. Morris Davis, interviewed on Democracy Now! on July 19. Davis said that the government is pressing the “aiding the enemy” charge “to make examples of people like Manning to deter folks in the future. And I think it’s a case of overcharging.”Davis said that “Manning has pled guilty to the offenses that represent his misconduct” but trying to add on the charge that “he had the intent or will to aid al-Qaida is, in my view, absurd.” Davis also clarified that Manning would not face the death penalty because that only can be applied to a jury trial, and his is a trial by judge.The other legal expert is Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights in New York, speaking to The Real News Network.Ratner said that following the government’s rebuttal will be “summations by both Bradley Manning’s lawyer as well as the government lawyers. The judge will then make a decision … they will go right into the sentencing phase” in which mitigating evidence can be entered if he is found guilty of some charges.That the “aiding the enemy” charge was allowed doesn’t necessarily mean he “will be found guilty” of this charge. “That she even upheld this charge is so completely outrageous,” said Ratner. (July 19)The government claims Manning indirectly aided Osama bin Laden, the “enemy.” What Manning really did was expose the crimes of the U.S. government in Iraq and Afghanistan to the people of the world. The people of the world are the real “enemies” of U.S. imperialism and the Pentagon, and Manning is the exemplary soldier who brought them the truth. Free B.

Adopted unchanged, anti-racism law’s media clauses will need judicious enforcement

first_imgNews RSF_en The law against racism was approved by the senate on 8 October and was immediately promulgated by President Evo Morales. The senate adopted the lower house’s version of the law without any changes despite major protests by media and journalists’ organisations against two articles that make it an offence for the press to publish racist comments or statements that incite racism. The protests have continued since its promulgation.Under article 16, news media can be fined or have their licence suspended if they “endorse or publish racist or discriminatory ideas.” Reporters Without Borders had recommended amending the article so that it would apply only to media “that explicitly defend racism or discrimination.”Without such an amendment, it will now be up to the courts to distinguish carefully between media coverage of racist comments or activities, which is legitimate, and media involvement in promoting racism, which is not. The courts will also need to take care with enforcement of article 23, concerning journalists as individuals._____________22.09.10 – Concern about article in proposed law against racism News BoliviaAmericas Help by sharing this information News BoliviaAmericas Bolivian journalist hounded after accusing boss of sexual harassment Organisation June 12, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders calls for an amendment to an article in the draft law against racism that was approved by Bolivia’s lower house on 10 September and is now being debated by the senate. The bill’s proposed measures include the creation of a National Committee against Racism and all forms of Discrimination under the culture ministry’s supervision. Its members would include representatives of public institutions, human rights organisations and Bolivia’s indigenous, Afro-Bolivian and other communities.There should be unanimity about this bill but it is meeting with distrust and even hostility from a significant part of the Bolivian press because of article 16, which says that “any media that endorses or publishes racist or discriminatory ideas will be liable to financial sanctions or the suspension of its operating licence, subject to regulation.” Article 23 also incorporates criminal code provisions regarding “crimes against human dignity.”In a joint statement released two days after the lower house vote, the National Press Association (ANP), the National Association of Bolivian Journalists (ANPB) and the Association of Bolivian Radio Stations (ASBORA) claimed that the law would introduce “preventive censorship of the press, which would violate freedom of expression, regarded by international standards as a fundamental basis of democracy.” While stressing that “opposition to any racist or discriminatory practices” was already part of their code of professional conduct, they condemned “any form of direct or indirect preventive censorship against journalism.”The country’s oldest daily, El Diario, went so far as to publish a front-page headline on 11 September saying: “The government is seeking pretexts to silence the media.” During a recent international conference attended by Reporters Without Borders, ANP president Juan Javier Zeballos said: “The law’s goal is noble, but what will be the fate of a news media that just reports a racist comment by a man in the street.”In view of the media’s concerns, Reporters Without Borders takes the following position:We support both the principle and the overall provisions of this proposed law. It is justified by the country’s history, in which the segregation of its indigenous and African communities was long the rule. The law is also understandable given the racist attacks, and the incitement to hatred and even murder – targeted at the indigenous population in general and President Evo Morales in particular – that were published by certain media at the height of the crisis in 2008.At that time, we clearly condemned lawyer Luis Arturo Mendivil’s hate-filled editorials on Radio Oriental, the radio station he owns. Mendivil went so far as to physically attack Alfredo Carrión of the state-owned Red Patria Nueva when Carrión asked him about these diatribes last month.A hate media is not a media. All it does is incite criminal activity. Article 16’s application would be justified in such circumstances, but only in those circumstances. A media cannot be accused of inciting racism or discrimination just for covering or reporting an event in which the protagonists were guilty of racist comments or behaviour. Criminal responsibility does not carry over to the media that describes criminal activity.In order to ensure that implementation of the new law does not in any way endanger free expression and media freedom, Reporters Without Borders proposes that article 16 should be amended so that it is applicable only to media “that explicitly defend racism or discrimination.”Photo: AFP Receive email alerts to go further February 1, 2018 Find out more Follow the news on Bolivia News Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom October 11, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Adopted unchanged, anti-racism law’s media clauses will need judicious enforcement Editor still unable to return to Bolivia after six months in exile November 18, 2016 Find out morelast_img read more

Editor of Khartoum paper kidnapped and murdered

first_img News SudanAfrica September 6, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Editor of Khartoum paper kidnapped and murdered News Reporters Without Borders expressed horror at the murder on 6 September 2006, of Mohamed Taha, editor of the privately-owned Sudanese daily al-Wifaq, who was snatched from his home east of Khartoum by masked men the previous evening.Police recovered his decapitated body in Kalakala district about 25 kms south of the capital. His family had immediately reported his abduction to the police after he was bundled into a Japanese make of car and driven away.Taha was tried for “blasphemy” in 2005, on the basis of a complaint by a fundamentalist group, Ansar al-Sunnah. The article that offended them related to a more than five-centuries-old Islamic manuscript entitled “the unknown in the life of the prophet” and which cast doubt on the prophet’s ancestry. Major demonstrations were organised by the imams of Khartoum demanding that the journalist, himself a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, be killed. The paper was suspended for two months.The manuscript was apparently originally written by Al-Maqrizi, a Muslim historian, and it told that the father of Mohammed was not called Abdallah but Abdel Lat, or “slave of Lat”, a pre-Islamic idol.””We express our solidarity with our colleagues in Khartoum, for whom this cowardly murder is a harsh ordeal. The reforms introduced to restore peace and justice to Sudan will be put at risk if nothing is done to punish this crime,” said Reporters Without Borders. “The Sudanese authorities must do their utmost to see that light is shed on this tragedy, so that both the perpetrators and those who instigated it are brought to trial,” the organisation added.

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Thinking ahead it vital to the success of any organisation, but is not without pitfalls. Paul Kearns discusses how the profession can best plan for the futureFor every strategic business decision there are a multitude of HR issues, and anticipating them to produce a coherent strategy is no mean feat. It requires a great deal of experience of working in large organisations and understanding the stresses and strains that such fundamental shifts in business strategy place on an organisation.Admittedly, many businesses going through such fundamental change somehow manage to cope and achieve their strategic goals, but that is not the same as saying they have done so as smoothly as they could have. HR strategy is a means of achieving strategic objectives, but it also aims to make any necessary organisational transition as smooth as possible. The changes should reap the greatest rewards for the business with the least disruption for the workforce.The overall aim of a strategic, bottom-line HR function is to produce a totally integrated, coherent and measurable strategy. In addition, there should be some means of checking whether the strategy is working and, if it is not, a way of identifying where it is falling short or going off course. However, there are often some big obstacles that get in the way of producing such a strategy. Indeed, effective HR strategies are rare because these obstacles often prove insurmountable.The strategic dilemmasI call these obstacles to producing effective HR strategies the “strategic dilemmas” because they are all double-edged swords. They may not be easy to deal with, but if you know what to look for then at least you have a fighting chance of overcoming them.Principles, values and strategyFirst on the list is the idea of honesty. Is it idealistic to expect business leaders to be completely honest? Possibly. What CEO wants to tie their colours to any particular mast, when they may be hoist by their own petard at a later date, if that is not a mixture of metaphors? There is always a temptation for a CEO to make public pronouncements that impress the financial analysts in the City. So we hear more and more about claims that a particular CEO is going to double shareholder value in three years, or something along similar lines.Unilever is pursuing a business strategy of reducing its number of product lines from about 1,500 to 400. It wants to focus on the products that return the most value. As a consequence of this strategy the people working in each division have been told quite clearly that if they do not achieve their targets, Unilever will divest itself of their part of the organisation.Here, a clear business strategy starts to have an immediately discernible impact on everyone who works at Unilever. The best strategists seem to do this. They tell their workforce what is expected and what will happen if they do not make the grade. Is this hard-nosed or just straightforward honesty and highly-effective management?Regardless of the reasons, there will never be an effective HR strategy if the business does not have clear values (for example, the shareholder comes first) and principles, such as personal accountability. The HR director at Unilever has something very focused and tangible to work to. Consequently, they should have no excuse for not producing an effective HR strategy.Unfortunately, even businesses that set themselves some tough targets are often reluctant to get this message across clearly to their employees because it might signify a different management style that their employees are not used to. The bottom-line HR function, therefore, has a key role to play in prescribing some strong medicine. If HR shies away from this task it will slip back into its former, faddish behaviour where it never gets to grips with the real issues the business has to face up to.Short-term versus long-term – the biggest red herring?One of the biggest red herrings in strategic HR thinking is that HR strategy is inherently long-term, while there is always a tendency, particularly in Western economies, for business leaders to engage only in short-termist thinking. In other words, HR and business strategies work to different and irreconcilable time frames. This is a brilliant excuse for not producing any meaningful strategy and is actually totally fallacious.There is no reason why short-term needs and long-term strategy cannot be accommodated simultaneously and even if HR strategy tends to look at the long-term it still has to incorporate ways of managing day-to-day, immediate issues. Take, for example, the need to cut costs on a daily basis. One very short-term approach to this is to just dictate to all managers that they have to cut costs in their own area by 10 per cent. Little thought may have gone into this dictat but it will, no doubt, result in some cost reductions – even if, on occasions, the cost reductions are made at the expense of some longer-term need. So, product development costs are reduced but, in the long term, this results in fewer new products being brought to market. This means, ironically, that the initial cost-cutting decision, which was most probably taken in a vain attempt to improve value, actually results in the organisation losing value.So where does a longer-term HR strategy fit with this short-termist, short-sighted view? First we need to move away from the traditional management approach of asking all managers to reduce their budgets by a uniform amount. This initiative needs to be selective. Then, how about a very short programme, for the managers selected, to ensure they only cut costs that will generate genuine savings, without longer-term damage being caused? But, at the same time, a longer-term management development plan can be put in place to ensure that the next time cost savings are required, these managers will already be well prepared and will even have been reducing costs on a regular basis anyway.A few years ago a director of a large car spares business told me that Toyota had embarked on a cost reduction programme which aimed to reduce its cost base by 50 per cent over three years – yes, I was astonished as well, especially as I already regarded it as super-efficient. At the time, it was already 18 months into this programme and apparently was on target. The only way Toyota could ever have achieved this was by developing its employees’ cost-reducing skills over a long period. This was no surprise though. Its business-focused HR strategy requires that all employees should constantly be thinking of ways to reduce costs. It recruits people who are willing to accept this condition of employment and then gives them training to help them to do so.Those who say HR management is hampered by short-termism would argue, no doubt, that this is the main reason there is little evidence of effective HR strategies. Any distinction between short- and long-term, though, is specious. As an economist, I know only too well that today’s short-term accumulates to become tomorrow’s long-term. It is a pity that this confused thinking results in short-term solutions being chosen to the detriment of long-term development. It does not have to be this way.Surely the aim of HR is to find a strategy that gets the best of both worlds, some short-term quick wins and longer-term progress and development. However, HR should never try to have a long-term HR strategy if there is no long-term business strategy. Not unless the HR director really feels he or she can start to actually inform and influence business strategy.If Ford used short-term tactics in HR 20 years ago it is reaping the consequences of that thinking today. Consequently, it may still be acting short-term because it has never addressed the underlying, fundamental, strategic issues. It sounds like a recipe for a vicious circle.I am sorry to harp on about unions again, but their continued existence is good evidence of a lack of both long-term, strategic HR vision and strong HR functions. Equally, however, I could cite a failure to make performance-related pay work and an inability to take training and development seriously as examples of short-termist HR thinking.Reactive versus proactiveOne debate that has raged in HR circles for many years is the old chestnut of whether HR is reactive or proactive. HR strategy, by definition, has to be proactive. It has to be based on a vision of the future. It has to anticipate and plan ahead. There will always be a certain amount of reactivity in day-to-day, HR work. Perhaps a sudden increase in demand, a competitor makes an announcement that seriously affects your business or the Government decides to change its policy. But the best strategists will either already be ahead of the game or have a certain amount of contingency or flexibility built into their own strategies.The reactive personnel administration team will fill a vacancy as soon as they can, but the strategic HR team will help to make the decision that the vacancy exists in the first place, as far in advance of the need as possible.‘Command and control’ versus freedom to act and empowermentOne of the most difficult issues for older managers (if there are any left) to face up to is the debate about how much control they should exert as opposed to allowing people the freedom to think for themselves and make their own decisions. This dilemma was perceptively summed up by Niall Fitzgerald, chairman of Unilever, in an interview in The Times on 18 September 1999, when he was reported as saying, “We’re going to have to find ways in which we can run our business (yet) give much more freedom and control to the individuals who are in the business… We’re not going to mandate… the day-to-day how you do it but there are principles by which you will do it which you must never depart from, because that’s the soul of our business.”This thinking leads him to conclude that Unilever has to accept a “much more fluid environment in which we have to operate, looser arrangements between people internally and externally puts an ever greater premium on the clarity of articulation from the top with regard to what business is about and where it is going. If those are not expressed in a tight, clear, consistent way the thing will just break down in anarchy”.Command-and-control style cultures did not require brilliant, creative, innovative HR strategies. The management style in such organisations was “like it or lump it”. Management made all the decisions and then informed staff as and when they saw fit to do so. Niall Fitzgerald is now saying that this type of management style is totally unsuited to the challenges that large, modern organisations face.I am sure Unilever was always interested in clear, strategic business thinking and planning and Fitzgerald is not moving away from this basic concept. Nevertheless, his statements are a clear admission that incorporated into the business strategy must be a crucial element of HR strategy. Interestingly, one of the most important elements he refers to is “clarity of articulation”. Sending “tight, clear” signals to the workforce is of paramount importance. We covered this under the first strategic dilemma and this illustrates the many-faceted, holistic and integrated nature of effective HR strategy.Managing complexityThe final strategic HR dilemma is that of managing complexity. No one would deny that running any sizeable organisation today is anything other than a very complex affair. Relentless competitive pressures, globalisation, the spread of e-commerce, increasing legislation, technological change and a host of other variables make for a very complex mix of factors which have to be considered, balanced and acted upon.Complexity and the speed of change do not seem to lend themselves to long-term strategic thinking. How can boards of directors manage and control something that is subject to such a wide variety of different forces – many of which are actually outside their control. Some argue that in such circumstances it is impossible to work on the basis of well-formulated, clearly defined strategies.Complexity is a serious issue and appears to militate against organisational strategy. I was lecturing a few years ago to a group of senior people from various arms of the Ministry of Defence and the armed services, who had specific responsibility for personnel. They said they all face numerous constraints on their freedom to make strategic decisions. They had to skilfully persuade, manage and convince a wide variety of stakeholders – their top brass, the Government, other civil servants, pressure groups, Nato, and the UN.As a result, they argued, they could not predict the future with any degree of certainty. Consequently, it undermined any explicit attempt to devise a coherent organisational strategy, never mind HR strategy. In other words, complexity and strategy are not happy bedfellows.From the same premise I would argue the opposite. It is precisely because we cannot predict the future with absolute certainty that we need a strategy. A total lack of strategy means being totally reactive. This is a very vulnerable state to be in. It is the description of a victim of circumstance. When I played devil’s advocate with this group and levelled this accusation at them it was interesting to see their response. “Uncomfortable” does not really begin to describe it. You see, if you take away someone’s excuse, that they cannot have a strategy, you put them fairly and squarely in a renewed state of accountability.You are either strategic or you are not. Although some try to cloud the issue by talking about their “default strategy”, this is sophistry. If the word “strategy” means anything it includes planning and having some clearly defined strategic goals. You cannot have a “reactive”, ad hoc strategy; that is a contradiction in terms. This is true of organisational strategy but it is even more important for HR strategy.Paul Kearns is senior partner at Personnel Works and an authority on training and development measurement and evaluation Obstacle courseOn 31 Oct 2000 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
