Rhode Island church offers college ministries to go

first_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Parishioners a St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church in Kingston, Rhode Island, providedfood for University of Rhode Island students with limited resources who couldn’t gohome during spring break. More than 60 students signed up to receive the donations.[Risen] This year, St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church in Kingston, Rhode Island, has been busy. The congregation discovered hunger in an unlikely place and found it an opportunity to get outside church doors and care for their next-door neighbors, the students of the University of Rhode Island.It started one week at St. Augustine’s coffee hour when Eileen Holovac and Catie Chatowsky listened to a presentation by the director of the Johnnycake Center of Peace Dale, an Episcopal Charities grant recipient. At the time, the two URI students were taking an honors course on “Hunger & Poverty in America.”Holovac and Chatowsky were inspired by the Johnnycake Center and wondered about the need for food on campus. They particularly were concerned about students with limited resources who were not able to go home during spring break. What does one eat when the dining halls are closed?Working with St. Augustine’s priest-in-charge, the Rev. David Dobbins, and Archdeacon Jan Grinnell, they met with URI representatives who agreed this was indeed an issue for a largely unseen population of students. The Jonnycake Center then agreed to provide food for an initial try at a food pantry. In early March, students and parishioners gathered to assemble 35 boxes of food, each box designed to support a needy student with a week’s worth of meals.Word spread like wildfire when announcements were made by the students through Facebook, e-mail and campus-based web pages. When spring break came, 63 students arrived in need of food, and in the spirit of the Gospels, food meant for 35 covered everyone.The food pantry is just one example of a larger initiative at St. Augustine’s to serve the student community better. The church also has been holding monthly “feed a friend” dinners where parishioners cook students their favorite meal. There have been “liturgy to go” events outside the student center, such as when parishioners offered prayer cards with ashes on Ash Wednesday and with hot cross buns at the end of Lent.During exams, St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church members handed out Smarties andprayer cards to students at the University of Rhode Island.During exams, St. Augustine’s handed out Smarties to go. The stressed students especially appreciated the attached prayer card; though no one has heard how the venture affected exam scores, a few students have posted thank you notes on the St. Augustine’s website.The positive seeds planted in the community are immeasurable, Dobbins said. “People are talking about what we are doing and respecting our commitment to the students.”As for church attendance, at least two URI staff members and five students are now parishioners.What’s next? St. Augustine’s is in the process of planning a welcoming event for the students’ return in the fall.— Ruth Meteer is editor of Risen magazine in the Diocese of Rhode Island, where this article first appeared in the spring issue.

This Caucus will help foster dialogue about Internet Freedom between human rights groups and business interests. We therefore reiterate our support to the Global Online Freedom Act and encourage the European Union to go further with theirs”, added Reporters Without Borders.During the press conference, Congressman Wu introduced the Internet Freedom Act of 2010, which would award competitive grants and incentive prizes to public and private research entities for the purpose of developing technologies to defeat Internet suppression and censorship.At the moment, 119 netizens around the world, including 72 in China,are behind bars for what they wrote on-line.

International press freedom organization Reporters Without Borders welcomes this new bipartisan effort to promote global Internet freedom.“Since the beginning of the year, top US officials have publicly voiced their commitment to Internet Freedom. We now hope this Caucus will help move forwards concrete measures to protect online free speech.” During a press conference held at Congress today, Chairman Wu spoke about the importance of Internet freedom as an economic and human right. “The Internet is not only a vital part of today’s innovation society-where ingenuity and entrepreneurship are necessary elements of survival in our global economy-it is also the most powerful engine for the free exchange of information and ideas in human history.”“ The Global Internet Freedom Caucus will help create support in the House for meaningful Internet freedom legislation” added Rep. Smith, who introduced the Global Online Freedom Act to Congress in 2006. “it’s become very clear that IT companies are not powerful enough to stand up to a repressive government. Without US government support, they are inevitably forced to be ever more complicit in the repressive governments censorahip and surveillance”The Global Online Freedom Act (GOFA) aims to“prevent United States businesses from cooperating with repressive governments in transforming the Internet into a tool of censorship and surveillance, to fulfill the responsibility of the United States Government to promote freedom of expression on the Internet, to restore public confidence in the integrity of United States businesses.”On March 8th 2010, the US treasury department also adopted amendments authorizing the exportation of certain personal Internet-based communications services – such as instant messaging, chat and email, and social networking – to Iran, Sudan and Cuba.

Concern about Sudanese authorities’ tougher line on news media

first_img Coronavirus infects press freedom in Africa March 29, 2020 Find out more SudanAfrica RSF_en Follow the news on Sudan Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the authorities’ increasingly repressive attitude to the media, in which the latest development has been the suspension of the newspaper Al-Saiha on the orders of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) on 20 May.The NISS began by confiscating the latest issue as it came off the presses but announced the newspaper’s suspension later in the day without giving any reason or saying how long it would last. The closure came a few days after Al-Saiha published an article accusing the under-secretary for justice of corruption.The NISS did give an explanation yesterday. It issued a statement saying the media should take care not to jeopardize national security and stability and should avoid stories that could hurt the image of the political, military or judicial authorities. The length of the suspension is still unknown.“We call for the immediate lifting of Al-Saiha’s suspension,” Reporters Without Borders research director Lucie Morillon said. “The government’s talk of ‘national dialogue’ and respect for media freedom is clearly contradicted by its actions. As for the NISS, its thinly veiled goal seems to be to control all of Sudan’s media or, at least, their editorial policies and what they publish.”Sudanese authorities are clearly cracking down on freedom of information. In a tough message to journalists on 19 May, President Omar al-Bashir accused certain media of “repeatedly dealing with national security, military affairs and justice issues in a negative and destructive manner that subjects the safety of the nation to harm and weakens its cohesion and crumbles its texture.”The media should refrain from crossing the “red lines,” he added.Sudan is ranked 172nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.photo : AFP April 6, 2020 Find out more Organisation May 22, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Concern about Sudanese authorities’ tougher line on news media News to go furthercenter_img News Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent SudanAfrica Receive email alerts April 10, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information News Sudan : Press freedom still in transition a year after Omar al-Bashir’s removal Newslast_img read more

They were prevented from flying on 28 June.“The freedom to travel abroad and return to one’s country is a fundamental right,” Reporters Without Borders said. “When the purpose of the trip abroad is medical, the government’s refusal to permit it seems to be an act of pointless and incomprehensible cruelty. Whether the government itself or a state agency was responsible, it abused its authority.”Myatiyev and his wife were told they were banned from leaving the country when they tried to fly from Ashgabat international airport on 28 June. They were also subjected to a thorough search for information “defaming Turkmenistan.”The authorities refused to give them an explanation when they went to the interior ministry the next day to find out why they were forbidden from travelling abroad. On returning to their home in the northern city of Dashoguz, they found their phone line had been disconnected and the quality of their Internet connection had deteriorated markedly.Both Myatiyev and his wife worked for several years for the government daily Neutralniy Turkmenistan before being fired. Myatiyeva was fired in 2002 for attending a training seminar for journalists in Sweden. When Myatiyev was fired in July of last year, he was told it was because of the detached retina from which he had been suffering for the previous few months.After he underwent an initial operation in the Netherlands, doctors told him he needed another one quickly to prevent his condition leading to blindness.Turkmenistan was ranked 173rd out of 175 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. No independent media are tolerated and journalists are constantly hounded.Two journalists and human rights activists, Annakurban Amanklychev and Sapardurdy Khadjiyev, are currently serving eight-year jail sentences for helping to make a report about Turkmenistan for the French TV programme “Envoyé spécial.” A third journalist and human rights activist, Ogulsapar Muradova, who also helped to make the report, died in detention on 12 September 2006 after a severely beating.
