RSF_en News IranMiddle East – North Africa June 11, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders hails last week’s European Parliament resolution on European Union strategy towards Iran. For the first time, the European Parliament has displayed a clear desire to take human rights into account in the EU’s relations with Iran.Adopted on 3 April, the resolution “calls on Iran to cooperate with international human rights bodies and its own NGOs,” supports “the urgent call of 772 Iranian journalists on the Iranian President to live up to his promise and allow the reopening of the Association of Iranian Journalists,” and urges the European Union “to mainstream human rights in all aspects of its relations with Iran.”“We welcome this initiative stressing human rights in relations with Iran,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “The measures envisaged in this resolution are a starting point. A counter-weight to the issue of Iran’s nuclear programme and the defence of European economic interests, they form a basis for taking account of fundamental freedoms in bilateral talks.”Various Iranian officials, including allies of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, have stepped up their attacks on the international community and the Europeans in particular since 31 March, the date that the text of the proposed resolution was circulated.The mullah-led regime has reacted with virulence towards article 17 of the resolution, which says that “any future Parliament delegations to Iran should be committed to meeting members of the political opposition and civil society activists, and to having access to political prisoners.”“The threats and attacks on the European Union by Iranian political and religious officials have no legitimacy coming from a regime that does not respect international human rights law,” said Réza Moini the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran-Afghanistan desk.“By calling for implementation of the Helsinki accords by an authoritarian regime, the EU is encouraging and legitimizing civil society’s human rights demands. The EU finally seems to be adopting an appropriate stance towards one of the world’s most repressive countries as regards freedom of information, a country that continues to be one of the world’s biggest prisons for journalists and netizens.”Moini added: “We call on the authorities to release the 52 journalists currently detained in Iran.”Disastrous record on freedom of informationThe British media revealed on 2 April that Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, 47, a UK resident with British and Iranian dual citizenship, was arrested while on a visit to Iran five months ago because of a comment on Facebook, and has been held in Tehran’s Evin prison ever since. Her husband, Daryoush Taghipoor, said she is being held on charges of “plotting to commit crimes against security and insulting Islam” for saying on Facebook that everything in Iran was “too Islamic.” She is “not a political activist in any way (…) just a normal citizen” and may have made a confession “under duress,” he said.Neither the Iranian nor British government said anything about Nobakht’s arrest for five months. Alerted by family friends, Andrew Stunell, a member of parliament for a district in the Stockport region where the couple lives, said he was “concerned about this arbitrary arrest” and had asked the Foreign Office to make urgent inquiries on her behalf.Nobakht is one of a total of 20 netizens currently detained in Iran. Subjected to long spells of solitary confinement and tortured into making confessions that are eventually used against them in sham trials, these men and women pay a high price for using their freedom of expression.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its deep concern about the conditions in which a number of Iranian journalists are being detained. The regime continues to show no consideration for the netizens and journalists who fall ill while in detention.They include Hossein Ronaghi Malki, Mohammad Reza Pourshajari, Mostafa Daneshjo, Hamidreza Moradi, Afshin Karampour, Mohammad Davari, Mohammad Sadegh Kabovand and Said Matinpour.All of them are ill and need urgent medical attention, but the prison and judicial authorities refuse to allow their transfer to hospitals although this is recommended by prison doctors and the regulations established by the judicial body that oversees the prison system.The eight members of the staff of the website Narenji (Orange in Persian) who were arrested on 3 December – Ali Asghar Hormand, Abass Vahedi, Alireza Vaziri, Nassim Nikmehr, Malieh Nakehi, Mohammad Hossien Mossazadeh and Sara Sajad Pour – are meanwhile still being held.Arrested by Revolutionary Guards, they were taken to an unknown location after their homes were searched and personal effects were removed. The date of their trial and the grounds for their arrest have still not been officially announced.The UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution on 24 March condemning Iran’s grave and repeated human rights violations and granting a one-year extension to the mandate of Ahmad Shaheed, the special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran.One of the world’s most repressive regimes as regards freedom of expression, Iran is ranked 173rd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

by Tim ReynoldsMIAMI (AP)—The father of the unarmed Black teen whose killing has sparked widespread outrage said Sunday night that he and his family have been overwhelmed by sports stars such as Dwyane Wade and LeBron James speaking out about the case. I AM TRAYVON—In this image, Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat posted a photo of himself wearing a hooded sweat shirt to his Twitter and Facebook pages, in response to the death of Trayvon Martin. (Dwayne Wade via Facebook) In an interview with The Associated Press, Tracy Martin thanked the NBA’s Miami Heat for “taking notice” of the killing. Martin is the father of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in Sanford, Fla. on Feb. 26 by a neighborhood watch volunteer who claimed self-defense and has not been arrested.The teen was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, known as a hoodie, when he was shot. On Friday, Wade posted a photo of himself in a hooded top to his social media pages, while James tweeted a photo of 13 Heat players wearing Black hoodies with their heads bowed in a tribute to the slain boy. Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire of the New York Knicks made similar gestures.“I saw a post that D-Wade had saying, ‘I am Trayvon Martin,’” Tracy Martin said. “To see all these athletes put Trayvon in the same sentence with them, it feels real good. Trayvon was an excellent athlete and if he could hear them saying his name, he would be so moved by it.”As they did in Friday night’s game against Detroit, several Heat players scrawled messages about Trayvon Martin on the sneakers they wore on the court Sunday. The Heat have said they hope having players speak out about the killing helps “in our nation’s healing.”“We just couldn’t imagine (anyone’s) son leaving to go play basketball or go to the drugstore or go anywhere and he doesn’t return,” James said Sunday in Oklahoma City, where the Heat were playing the Thunder.Tracy Martin said a number of athletes have reached out to the family, asking how they can help.“These athletes are saying, ‘It’s not about who I am. It’s about right and wrong,’” Tracy Martin said. “It’s like everybody’s taking notice. The Miami Heat came out in their hoodies, and that’s just saying, ‘We are people, we have hearts, we have feelings, we have emotions.’ That’s a warm feeling. The sports world has embraced this big-time.”

Winning against Southampton was just what the doctor ordered, with Fulham securing their first three points in the Premier League since beating Burnley at the end of August, as Claudio Ranieri made the best of managerial starts to his tenure at Craven Cottage.Life was never going to be easy for Fulham in the Premier League, but much more was expected of a club that had been one of the most active during the summer transfer window, having brought in no fewer than 14 new signings to make the side more competitive. However, the results didn’t come for Slavisa Jokanovic and after just one win in twelve games, the axe was inevitably wielded.Ranieri debuta con victoria en el Fulhamhttps://t.co/oLs4gT3bT5 pic.twitter.com/SGREtjyQfE— Mundo Deportivo (@mundodeportivo) November 24, 2018The subsequent arrival of Claudio Ranieri couldn’t have come at a better time, either. On the back of six straight Premier League defeats and the EFL Cup exit against Manchester City, the Italian coach managed to guide Fulham to a 3-2 victory against fellow strugglers Southampton, making for an excellent start to his tenure. The next step now will be to build momentum and maintain the positivity surrounding his arrival at the club.Despite the dream start for Ranieri, Fulham still remain amongst the favourites for relegation according to the latest EPL betting at William Hill, although a shift in the odds would suggest that bookmakers believe that if anyone can guide the team to safety, then it’s the man who stunned the football world by leading Leicester City to the 2015-16 Premier League title, making for one of the greatest underdog stories of all time.“We wanted to win, we showed very good fighting spirit,” Ranieri enthused via the official Fulham FC website, after the winning encounter with Southampton, while also pointing out that “it’s a little step” in the right direction for the team. “I want a clean sheet and want to improve our defensive work,” he also insisted, conscious of his team having conceded more goals than any other so far this season.Clearly, Ranieri remains fully aware of the difficult tests his team will face in the coming games, particularly with a run of three challenging matches within the space of just seven days to start December; a month that could give a strong indication as to how influential the 67-year-old coach may be in his new post.FT Fulham 3-2 SouthamtonIt’s a winning start for Claudio Ranieri as Fulham manager!Live text 👉 https://t.co/zbZG8RAdqq #FULSOU pic.twitter.com/GUCK4ZPa2z— BBC Sport (@BBCSport) November 24, 2018The first stop is Stamford Bridge for a tussle with Chelsea, a location Ranieri knows all too well after his stint with the Blues between September 2000 and May 2004. Next is a home encounter against the club where his remarkable Premier League title was achieved, Leicester City, which will undoubtedly be filled with emotion. Fulham then take on Manchester United at Old Trafford, as Ranieri locks horns with Jose Mourinho, the man who replaced him at Chelsea back in 2004.Fulham end 2018 with matches against West Ham, Newcastle United, Wolves and Huddersfield Town; all of whom are also currently in the bottom half of the table. Direct rivals against which Ranieri will be keen to secure as many points as possible, hopeful that by the time his side take on Arsenal to start 2018, the team will be sat in a far more comfortable position in the Premier League table.

EBay founder Pierre Omidyar’s Omiyar Network prides itself on being an organization that offers opportunities for entrepreneurs to “catalyze economic, social and political change”. The network has invested in government transparency, micro-finance and education-focused companies. Meanwhile, the Knight Foundation’s Knight News Challenge offers funding for community news innovations. Past prize recipients have included EveryBlock and Spot.us. We know we’re just skimming the surface for cause-related startup funding. If you’ve got suggestions, let us know in the comments below. Raising funding is hard any way you slice it, but the emergence of cause-base resources is helping pave the way for ethical startups that might have otherwise gone unseen. A few years ago we featured 13 seed funding options for entrepreneurs. Since then a few investment groups have come forward with a different approach. One such funder is the education-focused incubator Startl. As mentioned in Fred Wilson’s latest blog post, Startl is similar to seed fund incubators like Techstars and YCombinator except that its a nonprofit organization focused specifically on advancing new learning experiences. While the program offers a mobile app design bootcamp in New York, it’s Startl’s 3 month accelerator program hosted by Philadelphia-based DreamIt Ventures and Ideo design firm that will allow entrepreneurs to learn the ins and outs of creating an education-based business. DreamIt celebrated a graduation and demo day in August and the new Startl program will be folded into the next cycle of DreamIt participants.
