«la nave Aquarius della Ong SOS Mediterranée»

*

«SOS MEDITERRANEE is a European, maritime-humanitarian organisation for the rescue of life in the Mediterranean. It was founded by European citizens who chartered the rescue vessel Aquarius in order to save people in distress in the Central Mediterranean – the in the world’s most deadly migration route. Our four headquarters are located in Berlin (Germany), Marseilles (France), Palermo (Italy) and Geneva (Switzerland). ….

SOS MEDITERRANEE è un’organizzazione umanitaria europea interamente finanziata dalla popolazione solidale a livello globale e dall’appoggio della società civile.

Con la nostra nave di soccorso AQUARIUS siamo da Febbraio 2016 attivi nel Mediterraneo con operazioni di soccorso grazie alle quali abbiamo salvato 19.325 persone in condizioni disperate ed accolte a bordo altre 8.421 per un totale di 27.746.

Le attività in mare della nave Aquarius costano 11.000 al giorno, cifra necessaria per potere pagare il noleggio della nave, del suo equipaggio, il carburante e l’insieme delle attrezzature necessarie per accogliere, nutrire e curare i rifugiati. » [Sos Mediterranée]

Cerchiamo di ragionare, nel limite del possibile.

L’Aquarius presenta un costo annuo di quattro milioni di euro, cifra raccolta tra la ‘società civile’ mondiale, ossia da altre ngo (ong). Chi li paga? Il Contribuente Europeo …..

Soros-Sponsored Immigration Network Exposed In Italy

«Why is there a migrant crisis in the Mediterranean? Why are NGOs involved? Because there is an extensive network of open borders activists and organizations behind it; many of them are directly funded by or cooperated with George Soros’ Open Society. Is it illegal? Not really. Political activism is an essential part of democratic societies. However, sometimes it goes too far, or the promoted causes prove to be either unrealistic or unsustainable.

The network of the “immigration lobby’’ in Italy is made up of International NGOs financed by the Open Society Foundation (green), Italian NGOs financed by OSF (blue), and organizations with shared projects with OSF (purple). ….

Associazione Carta di Roma lists the following “reliable’’ sources, many of which are Italian or international NGOs directly funded by the Open Society Foundation: Amnesty International, ASGI, COSPE, 21 Luglio, Fortress Europe, A Buon Diritto, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Save The Children, currently involved in the migrant traffic in the Mediterranean and finally UNAR, recently involved in a scandal of gay prostitution. ….

Cospe Onlus is a non-profit, private organization founded in 1983. It operates in 30 countries with 150 projects “to favour equal and sustainable development, respect of human rights, peace and justice for people’’, supporting the right to international mobility. Its goal is a world where “diversity is considered a value, a world with many voices, where the meeting of different people results in mutual enrichment and where social justice goes through equal rights and opportunities’’.

Cospe is among the original founders and promoters of SOS Mediterranee Italia, an NGO that works in the Mediterranean cooperating with Médecins Sans Frontières on the ship Acquarius»

*

«The last budget published is from 2015. Cospe gathered funding of approximately €9.5 million, of which €7.5 million was from public subjects, the most relevant of which are the European Union (66%) and the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs (27%).»

*

Riassumiamo.

Sotto il precedente governo Gentiloni, e tutti gli altri gestiti dal partito democratico, governi di infausta memoria, la Unione Europea finanziava Cospe per 4.95 milioni l’anno ed il Ministero Italiano per gli Esteri elargiva alla stessa due milioni all’anno. Totale 7.5 milioni contro uno solo di spese. Il resto? Tutto pappato!

Se l’Unione Europea volesse interrompere il flusso di migranti che lei stessa finanza, sarebbe sufficiente che smettesse di finanziare codesti mercanti di schivi, che lucrano sul denaro pubblico. E che dire poi dei mai sufficientemente esecrati governi pidiini che finanziavano simili attività?

Mr Macron ha bloccato ai migranti porti e frontiere francesi, ma non intende perdere i proventi di simili criminosi guadagni.

* * * * * * *

«Gabriel Attal, a spokesman for Macron’s party, went further, telling Public Senat TV: “The Italian position makes me vomit.”»

*

«Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte responded angrily. Italy cannot accept hypocritical lessons from countries that have always preferred to turn their backs when it comes to immigration,” Conte said in a statement.»

*

«Italy has taken in more than 640,000 mainly African migrants over the past five years. Other EU states have largely ignored pleas by Rome to take in some of the newcomers and share the cost of their care, heightening anti-European and anti-migrant sentiment in Italy»

«Salvini: francesi chiedano scusa “Mi sembra che proprio in questi minuti l’ambasciatore francese sia stato convocato dal nostro ministro degli Esteri che, a nome del popolo italiano, chiederà spiegazioni degli insulti non solo al Governo ma a un popolo che è tra i primi al mondo per generosità, accoglienza, volontariato: se i francesi avranno l’umiltà di chiedere scusa, pari e patta e amici come prima”. Lo ha detto il vicepresidente del Consiglio e ministro dell’Interno, Matteo Salvini, a margine dell’assemblea di Confesercenti. “Insulti da chi respinge e chiude i ponti non li accettiamo”, ha sottolineato Salvini. Il ministro dell’Interno oggi sul suo profilo Facebook è tornato a sottolineare che: “I francesi fanno i fenomeni ma hanno respinto più di diecimila persone alle frontiere con l’Italia, tra cui moltissime donne e bambini. Sommessamente ricordo poi che, sul fronte Nord Africa, paghiamo tutti l’instabilità portata proprio dai francesi in Libia e a sud della Libia”. Cosi il ministro dell’Interno Matteo Salvini su Facebook commenta un articolo, che linka, in cui si riportano le durissime critiche arrivate ieri dalla Francia alla sua gestione della vicenda della nave Aquarius.”L’Italia oggi e’ tornata centrale e ha risvegliato l’Europa, spero che tutti i Paesi diano il loro contributo per l’obiettivo comune: difesa delle frontiere esterne, difesa del Mediterraneo”, conclude» [Rai News]

Reuters. 2018-06-13. Italy sends migrant convoy to Spain, has words with France

Italy sent hundreds of migrants towards Spain in a small naval convoy on Tuesday after shutting its own ports to them, sparking a war of words with France that exposed EU tensions over immigration.

Some 629 migrants, including 11 children and seven pregnant women, have been afloat in the central Mediterranean aboard the Aquarius rescue ship since Sunday, when both Italy and Malta refused to let them dock.

Spain unexpectedly offered on Monday to take in the group of mainly sub-Saharan Africans, who were picked up off the Libyan coast over the weekend. But the Aquarius is heavily overcrowded, making the four-day trip to Spain particularly perilous.

To resolve the problem, two Italian boats moved alongside the Aquarius on Tuesday to share out the migrants before heading west through what are forecast to be stormy seas.

The convoy set sail at around 9 p.m. (1900 GMT), according to a spokeswoman for the Franco-German charity SOS Mediterranne which is operating the Aquarius.

It will take the Aquarius about 10 days to make the trip to Spain and back, leaving the Dutch-flagged Sea Watch 3 alone off the coast of Libya – a staging ground for people smugglers – looking out for migrant boats in distress.

The Sea Watch reported that a migrant shipwreck had claimed at least 12 lives. A U.S. Navy ship, Trenton, radioed Sea Watch on Tuesday to say it had picked up 12 bodies and 41 survivors from a sinking rubber boat.

“This shows what happens when there are not enough rescue assets at sea,” said Sea Watch spokesman Ruben Neugebauer.

Italy has taken in more than 640,000 mainly African migrants over the past five years. Other EU states have largely ignored pleas by Rome to take in some of the newcomers and share the cost of their care, heightening anti-European and anti-migrant sentiment in Italy.

Matteo Salvini, Italy’s new interior minister and head of the far-right League, has said his decision not to accept the migrant boat is aimed at forcing other European states to help bear the strain.

However, French President Emmanuel Macron denounced the decision to block the Aquarius, saying that under international law Italy should have taken the migrants in.

“There is a degree of cynicism and irresponsibility in the Italian government’s behavior with regard to this dramatic humanitarian situation,” government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux quoted Macron as telling his cabinet.

Gabriel Attal, a spokesman for Macron’s party, went further, telling Public Senat TV: “The Italian position makes me vomit.”

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte responded angrily.

“Italy cannot accept hypocritical lessons from countries that have always preferred to turn their backs when it comes to immigration,” Conte said in a statement.


Ansa. 2018-06-13. Farnesina convoca ambasciatore francese

Dopo le dichiarazioni di Parigi sulla vicenda Aquarius.

*

ROMA, 13 GIU – “A seguito delle dichiarazioni rilasciate ieri a Parigi sulla vicenda Aquarius, il ministro degli Esteri e della Cooperazione internazionale, Enzo Moavero Milanesi, ha convocato questa mattina alla Farnesina l’ambasciatore di Francia in Italia”. Lo fa sapere l’ufficio stampa della Farnesina.


Adnk. 2018-06-13. Italia-Francia, alta tensione

Un Paese “irresponsabile e cinico” sui migranti, con una posizione sull’accoglienza “vomitevole” e un governo impegnato a “strumentalizzare” politicamente il dramma degli sbarchi. La Francia colpisce duro e non fa sconti all’Italia sul caso Aquarius, aprendo una crisi diplomatica che coinvolge l’intera Europa. Capofila dell’attacco frontale è il presidente Macron, che nella giornata di ieri ha lanciato un doppio affronto all’Italia, prima con le parole del portavoce del suo partito, En Marche, e poi attraverso quelle del portavoce di governo. Parole durissime, ma condivise dalla Spagna, che non solo ha accolto la nave bloccata da giorni nel Mediterraneo offrendo l’attracco nel porto di Valencia, ma ha anche lanciato un monito all’Italia, ravvisando eventuali – secondo la neo ministra della Giustizia iberica Dolores Delgado – “responsabilità penali internazionali” per aver violato i trattati internazionali sui diritti umani.

Il doppio e pesantissimo attacco ha scatenato l’ira di Palazzo Chigi, che in serata ha rilasciato una nota di fuoco contro Macron paventando l’ipotesi di far saltare il previsto vertice fra i due Paesi: “Le dichiarazioni intorno alla vicenda Aquarius che arrivano dalla Francia – si legge – sono sorprendenti e denunciano una grave mancanza di informazioni su ciò che sta realmente accadendo. L’Italia non può accettare lezioni ipocrite da Paesi che in tema di immigrazione hanno sempre preferito voltare la testa dall’altra parte”.

Sulla scia delle polemiche, questa mattina la Farnesina ha convocato l’ambasciatore francese: “A seguito delle dichiarazioni rilasciate ieri a Parigi sulla vicenda Aquarius, il ministro degli Esteri e della Cooperazione internazionale, Enzo Moavero Milanesi, ha convocato questa mattina alla Farnesina l’ambasciatore di Francia in Italia”.

Dentro i confini del Parlamento, intanto, la crisi diplomatica continua a rafforzare le due anime del governo: in perfetta sintonia, infatti, le dichiarazioni dei leader Salvini e Di Maio, entrambi impegnati a difendere azioni e strategie italiane contro il ‘nemico’.

“Mi sembra che proprio in questi minuti l’ambasciatore francese sia stato convocato dal ministro degi Esteri che a nome del popolo italiano chiederà spiegazione degli insulti rivolti non solo a un governo ma a un popolo tra i primi al mondo per generosità e accoglienza”, ha commentato stamane Salvini arrivando all’assemblea di Confesercenti, aggiungendo: “Se i francesi avranno l’umiltà di chiedere scusa, pari e patta, amici come prima e si lavora in tutte le sedi. Però gli insulti da parte di chi respinge e chiude i porti non li accettiamo”, ha rimarcato il ministro dell’Interno.

“Proprio loro parlano…”, il commento di ieri del pentastellato ministro del Lavoro Di Maio, per il quale “Francia e Spagna hanno chiuso i loro porti da tempo. La Spagna ha praticato addirittura i respingimenti a caldo che sono stati anche condannati dalla Corte Europea dei Diritti dell’Uomo”. Sulla stessa lunghezza d’onda il ministro Salvini:

2018-04-20__Orban__001

È durata per lunga pezza la resistenza dell’Ungheria di Mr Orban alle azioni del ngo (ong) finanziate da Mr Soros per propagare l’ideologia liberal e svolgere attività contro il governo legalmente in carica. Ma dopo che si è resistito ai nazionalsocialisti e poi ai comunisti non ci si trova certo paura dei loro nipotini.

Adesso, dopo la clamorosa vittoria elettorale ove gli Elettori ungheresi hanno dato al Presidente Orban la maggioranza assoluta dei seggi, in grado tale che potrebbe anche varare leggi che variassero la costituzione, Mr Soros ritira da quella nazione le sue ngo, prima che esse siano dichiarate fuori legge ed i suoi membri verosimilmente fossero arrestati.

La notizia arriva a pochi giorni di distanza dall’anniversario della liberazione dell’Ungheria dall’occupazione nazionalsocialista.

Die Open Society Foundation von George Soros schließt ihr Büro in Budapest und zieht nach Berlin.

*

Wien/Budapest. Patrick Gaspard war eigens nach Budapest gereist, um den rund 100 Mitarbeitern die schlechte Nachricht zu verkünden. Der Chef der Open Society Foundation (OSF), einer vom ungarischstämmigen US-Milliardär George Soros gegründeten Stiftung, gab am Donnerstag die Schließung des Büros in der ungarischen Hauptstadt bekannt. Im Sommer will die Organisation, die in Europa Niederlassungen in Brüssel, Paris und London hat, stattdessen eine Filiale in Berlin eröffnen. Dies bestätigte die OSF-Zentrale in New York der „Presse“. Das Hauptquartier wollte den Schritt vorerst nicht kommentieren.

Die Stiftung beugt sich indessen offenkundig dem Druck der Regierung Viktor Orbáns und seiner Fidesz-Partei, die spätestens seit der Flüchtlingskrise vor drei Jahren eine Kampagne gegen Soros und mit ihm assoziierter Institutionen betreibt – inklusive antisemitischer Untertöne.


Breitbart. 2018-04-20. Soros’s Open Society Foundations Announces Exit from Hungary

In a major victory for the Hungarian government and the Hungarian people who overwhelmingly re-elected it in the recent elections, the Open Society Foundations (OSF) has said it will leave Budapest after a sustained campaign against the globalist influence of George Soros.

OSF chairman Patrick Gaspard personally travelled to Hungary’s capital to inform around 100 members of staff there that the international grantmaking network founded by Soros will be moving its Eastern European operations to Berlin, Austria’s Die Presse reported Thursday.

After closing its Budapest office in August, the organisation will operate temporarily in Vienna before moving to a site in the German capital, according to the liberal news portal 444.hu.

The OSF’s announcement followed reports that Soros’ Central European University (CEU) is also planning to retreat from Hungary, with the institution having already signed an agreement with a landlord in Vienna where it will establish a campus.

Earlier this month, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s conservative Fidesz party swept to victory in elections, winning a huge two-thirds majority of seats in the Hungarian parliament after a campaign vowing to protect citizens from Soros’s plans to turn the country into a multicultural “nation of immigrants”.

major pillar of the party’s campaign was directed at the influence of foreign NGOs and the far left financier, who has spent more than $32 billion on OSF’s work to “build vibrant and tolerant democracies” since launching what he describes as his “philanthropic” career in South Africa in 1979.

Since the election, Fidesz has said that a major priority for the government will be passing a package of bills dubbed the “Stop Soros” laws which would tax foreign income to NGOs and restrict the operations of open borders groups.

Speaking on public radio following the foundation’s announcement, Orbán remarked: “I think you will understand if I fail to cry over its decision to close the headquarters in our capital.

“The fight against Soros, its liberal ideology, its initiatives on migrants, will continue wherever the foundations of its foundation are,” he told MR1.

Earlier this week, the government said that despite a landslide victory for patriots at the polls, it was “crystal clear” the Hungarian-born billionaire remains committed to flooding unwilling EU nations with third world migrants.

Both the Fidesz spokesman Zoltán Kovács and the foreign minister Péter Szijjártó denounced a meeting in Brussels Monday between Soros and the European Commission vice-president Frans Timmermans.

“Both are radically pro-immigration and are both committed enemies of the Hungarian government and Hungarian migration policy,” said Szijjártó, stressing that Fidesz has been given a mandate to resist any attempts by the pair to implement their globalist ideology in Hungary.


→ Reuters. 2018-04-20. Soros foundations to quit Hungary amid political hostility

George Soros’ Open Society Foundations will close their office in Budapest and move their eastern European operations to Berlin, Austria’s Die Presse newspaper reported on Thursday.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has blamed Soros, a Hungarian-born U.S. financier, for a host of ills and pushed through legislation cracking down on non-governmental organizations called the “Stop Soros” laws which drew international criticism.

The Hungarian news web site 444.hu said the Open Society Foundations office would shut by Aug. 31 and move first to Vienna then on to Berlin.

Reuters was not been able to immediately reach the Open Society Foundations either in Budapest or New York.

Orban, a self-styled champion of what he calls an “illiberal democracy”, has long been at odds with Soros’ network of NGO’s which promote liberal values around the world.

The Hungarian premier has for years waged a campaign against migration into Europe, an issue at the center of his re-election bid which resulted in a third landslide victory this month.

Orban’s Fidesz party said it would deliver on campaign promises to crack down on NGOs that promote migrant rights. The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe said the election was characterized by xenophobic and intimidating messages.

The legislation submitted to parliament before the election would impose a 25 percent tax on foreign donations to NGOs that the government says back immigration.

Their activity would have to be approved by the interior minister, who could deny permission if he saw a national security risk.

Open Society Foundations could not immediately be reached for comment. Hungarian government spokespeople did not immediately reply to emailed requests for comment.

The Soros-founded Central European University has also said it is opening a campus in Vienna in the near future. It has said it remains committed to its Budapest campus, despite government pressure that it said was geared to oust it from Hungary.

Cina. Weibo banna i contenuti omosessuali.

Giuseppe Sandro Mela.

2018-04-19.

Pechino-Cina

«Sina Weibo (新浪微博S, Xīnlàng Wēibó) è un sito di microblogging cinese. È un ibrido fra Twitter e Facebook, è uno dei siti più frequentati della Cina, si calcola che più del 30% delle persone che hanno accesso a internet in Cina usi Sina Weibo, quasi come la penetrazione di mercato di Twitter negli Stati Uniti. Nel 2012 contava più di 500 milioni di iscritti e 100 milioni di pubblicazioni giornaliere. Verso il terzo trimestre del 2015, Sina Weibo aveva 222 milioni di abbonati e 100 milioni di utenti giornalieri. Circa 100 milioni di messaggi sono postati ogni giorno su Sina Weibo.» [Fonte]

*

Il fatto che Weibo sia poco o punto noto in Occidente non toglie minimamente che in Cina sia estremamente diffuso: è il più frequentato sito di microblogging.

La fonte citata incorre in una svista. Peccato veniale, si intende, ma pur sempre peccato.

«Nel 2012 contava più di 500 milioni di iscritti»

e

«più del 30% delle persone che hanno accesso a internet in Cina usi Sina Weibo».

Ma se 500 milioni di iscritti sono il 30% degli utenti internet, il totale degli utenti dovrebbe essere circa 1,666 milioni: in pratica ci sarebbero più utenti internet che popolazione.

Accontentiamoci quindi di dire come Weibo sia estremamente diffuso in Cina.

*

«Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, is a powerful digital communications and marketing channel. Use of this real-time microblogging social technology in China has been unprecedented, and companies have a unique opportunity to use Weibo to reach and engage new audiences in China. Weibo has an estimated 300 million registered users in China. Users cover a broad swath of China’s internet population, including youth, domestic and international celebrities, CEOs, professionals, and media personalities. First developed as China’s answer to Twitter, Weibo has developed its own features that some would argue make it a unique marketing and communications proposition in China, and in many ways a more diverse and dynamic platform than Twitter. Because of these differences, international brands and companies cannot necessarily assume that their Twitter strategy will work for Weibo. Weibo requires its own strategy. For example, 140 Chinese written characters on Weibo can tell a full story, but the same number of characters in English on Twitter gets a sender only as far as a teaser message or a one-liner with a link» [China Business Reiew]

Questo passaggio è di importanza fondamentale: centoquaranta caratteri in cinese possono esprimere una esposizione completa, mentre in inglese consentono al massimo una sola piccola frase, di un succinto enunciato. Il fattore linguistico differenzia in modo sostanziale Weibo dagli analoghi occidentali.

*

L’ideologia liberal e quella socialista è condivisa da circa un trenta per cento della popolazione elettorale occidentale, ossia grosso modo dal 30% di un settimo della popolazione mondiale. In alcuni paesi dell’ovest essa è ancora saldamente al potere, ma in molti stati ha subito un consistente allontanamento dell’elettorato.

Uno dei metri più efficienti per misurare il potere residuo dei liberal è quello di andare a vedere quanto riescono ad imporre la propria ideologia, per esempio l’utilizzo delle ngo (ong) oppure il patrocinio dell’omosessualità e di tutto ciò che concerne questo argomento.

La mentalità dei liberal è ben sintetizzata dal seguente titolo del The Diplomat:

«The website of the Bureau for the Management of Overseas NGOs under the MPS still lacks an English version»

Ci si domanda: per quale strano motivo un ufficio statale cinese non dovrebbe utilizzare la propria lingua madre ed usare invece l’inglese? Forse che la White House dovrebbe scrivere le sue note in cinese invece che in americano?

In questo contesto è facile comprendere ciò che è accaduto.

Il problema è semplicissimo.

A partire dagli anni novanta la Cina ricevette forti pressioni ad accogliere le ngo ed ad adottare una politica pro – gay. Erano tempi nei quali l’Occidente aveva la forza di imporsi.

La Cina, composta di persone sostanzialmente pragmatiche, si adattò cercando di fare il meno possibile. Vedeva infatti le ngo come emanazioni finanziate da potenze straniere e l’omosessualità era aliena dalla mentalità del popolo.

Ma adesso le cose stanno cambiando, ed anche molto velocemente.

Mentre nel 2017 la Cina aveva un pil ppa di 23,122 miliardi Usd, l’Unione Europea ne aveva 20,853 e gli Stati Uniti 19,362.

Ora la Cina può farsi le proprie ragioni, e, tra queste, proibire la propaganda omosessuale via internet. I liberal se ne facciano una ragione.


Deutsche Welle. 2018-04-15. China’s Weibo bans homosexual content

Sina Weibo, China’s popular microblogging platform, has announced it is banning content related to homosexuality. A rallying cry by users saw the hashtag “I am gay” also blocked by Chinese internet censors.

*

Chinese microblogging website Sina Weibo appeared on Saturday to censor a series of online protests decrying the platform’s decision to remove “illegal” content related to homosexuality.

Outraged Weibo users rallied under the hashtag “I am gay” early on Saturday to protest the company’s announcement. By midday, it had reportedly gathered over 130 million views and generated some 153,000 comments. However, by the afternoon, Weibo appeared to have also banned the hashtag and deleted most of the related comments.

Weibo announced its latest censorship drive — or “clean-up campaign” — on Friday, saying it would be removing “illegal” content, including “manga and videos with pornographic implications, promoting violence or (related to) homosexuality.”

The new bans would “create a sunny and harmonious community environment,” the platform added.

Weibo, China’s Twitter-like platform, boasts some 400 million active monthly users — roughly 25 percent more than Twitter itself.

Users voice their outrage under the “I am gay” banner

Weibo’s announcement, however, provoked a flood of stunned and angry responses from Chinese users.

“You want to shut my mouth, but you can only delete my account,” one user posted using the “I am gay” hashtag.

Another said: “As a member of this group, I am proud, I am glorious … I refuse to be discriminated and misunderstood.”

Lu Pin, a prominent Chinese feminist and women’s rights activist, said some brands and influential users had already begun boycotting microblogging site.

According to What’s on Weibo, a site monitoring Chinese social media trends, some users also combined the “I am gay” with the hashtag “I am illegal.”

Gay rights in China

Weibo’s content ban is the latest attempt by the Chinese government to purge the internet of content it alleges deviates from socialism’s “core values” or criticizes the country’s established policies.

Although China decriminalized homosexuality back in 1997 and removed it from the state list of mental disorders in 2001, conservative attitudes remain widespread.

A 2013 Pew study found that only around 20 percent of Chinese respondents said the believed homosexuality should be accepted by society.

“There can be no homosexuality under socialism? It is unbelievable that China progresses economically and militarily but returns to the feudal era in terms of ideas,” one outraged Weibo commenter said.

Online censorship China

China has also been tightening its censorship grip under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, who has been advocating for a stronger promotion of socialist ideology in society and everyday life.

China’s censorship laws not only allow authorities to closely monitor online user activity and purge the internet of any content it deems offensive. It also requires the websites themselves to hire their own censors to monitor content on their pages.

This week, Toutiao, one of China’s most popular news aggregator apps, was reprimanded by the government for allowing users to share lewd jokes and videos. The site subsequently promised to increase censorship to some 10,000 people.

Weimar Triangle. Prove tecniche di buon senso.

Giuseppe Sandro Mela.

2018-03-18.

Polonia 001

Il Weimar Triangle era stato un forum generato dall’allora ministro degli esteri tedesco nel 1991 per facilitare stabili consultazioni tra Polonia, Francia e Germania. Tra i molti problemi sul tappeto emergevano la sinistrata situazione economica polacca dopo settanta anni di comunismo, l’esigenza di epurazioni della vecchia dirigenza, e, soprattutto, la nuova figura di una Polonia incardinata nella Nato, avamposto delle difese occidentali. Una Polonia neutrale sarebbe stato per l’Occidente di allora un disastro militare.

L’epurazione dei pregressi comunisti non fu portata avanti con determinazione e molti di essi transitarono tacitamente nella frangia liberal europea, parte per affinità ideologica parte per la convenienza di avere un patron di rispetto e riguardo.

*

Con le cancellerie Merkel i rapporto germano – polacchi subirono grandi variazioni, anche se ben poco reclamizzate.

Il disinteresse di Frau Merkel nei confronti dei problemi della difesa rese obbligatoria per la Polonia una forma di più stretti rapporti con gli Stati Uniti, fino quasi a sconfinare in un rapporto ufficioso ben più cementante di quello ufficiale. Se la Polonia accettava una sempre maggiore presenza Nato sul suo territorio, esponendosi così al primo fuoco, essa voleva in cambio solide garanzie, non vaghe parole. I rapporti con la Germania di Frau Merkel andarono così raffreddandosi.

Poi arrivarono al pettine i nodi della situazione interna.

Germania di Frau Merkel e Francia prima di Mr Sarkozy prima, quindi di Mr Hollande e Mr Macron, cercarono di interferire severamente nel quadro politico interno polacco sia con pressioni economiche e politiche diplomatiche, sia soprattutto patrocinando e tutelando le formazioni socialiste e liberal, che per alquanto tempo riuscirono anche a governare di fatto quella nazione. La Polonia fu letteralmente invasa da una pletora di ngo, ong, finanziate da stranieri con l’obbiettivo di controllare la situazione politica interna di tale nazione. Alleate del governo fino a tanto che esso fu socialista, avversarie e nemiche quando il PiS conquistò la maggioranza assoluta del parlamento.

*

Ma la Polonia, così come i paesi del Visegrad non avrebbero potuto sopportare a lungo simili interferenze. Se per loro l’aderire alla Unione Europea era stato un importante passo, non per questo erano disposti a rinunciare a ciò che li contraddistingueva come popoli, prima ancora che come nazioni.

Non ci si dimentichi come questi paesi del Visegrad nacquero dal trattato di Versailles, e dopo una ventina di anni furono coinvolti nei vortici della guerra mondiale, occupati militarmente e politicamente dai tedeschi, e quindi transitati al rango di paesi satelliti dell’allora Unione Sovietica. Essi sopravvissero compattandosi attorno alla loro tradizione religiosa, storica, culturale, sociale ed anche artistica. Non ci si dimentichi di come Solidarność, sindacato chiaramente cattolico, sia stato il primum movens del crollo del comunismo e dell’implosione dell’Unione Sovietica. Né ci si dimentichi del martirio di Jerzy Popieluszko: la Polonia ha pagato la propria libertà con il suo sangue.

È impossibile per la Polonia vedersi imposta una ideologia liberal, per definizione atea attiva. La Polonia non ha la minima intenzione di rinunciare alla sua religione ed alla sua storia. È in ballo la sua identità come popolo, prima ancora che come nazione.

*

Facile da comprendere che appena fu possibile politicamente ed economicamente i polacchi organizzarono un partito politico chiaramente cattolico, saldamente ispirato al proprio retaggio religioso, storico, culturale, sociale ed anche artistico, il Prawo i Sprawiedliwość, PiS, Diritto e Giustizia. Alle ultime elezioni conquistarono 238 / 460 seggi nel Sejm, il Parlamento, e 61 / 100 seggi nel Senato: la maggioranza assoluta. Si noti come le formazioni socialiste non conquistarono nemmeno un deputato. Fu il momento del trionfo di Jarosław Kaczyński.

I polacchi iniziarono una consistente disinfestazione dai residui socialisti. Così come è diritto di chi vince le elezioni detenere la maggioranza degli eletti e governare, similmente è suo diritto cambiare burocrati e fnzionari legati alla precedente gestione. Questo è il cuore dello spoils system in vigore negli Stati Uniti e che nessuno si sognerebbe di indicare come “antidemocratico“. Ma se esso vale per gli americani, allora deve valere anche per i polacchi. I due pesi e le due misure sono di per sé stessi odiosi.

Polonia. Scacciare le ong (ngo) di Mr Soros.

«Poland’s Law and Justice government wants to clean up the country’s civic sector, but NGOs fear a crackdown is coming …. Prime minister Beata Szydlo has announced the opening of a “national centre for the development of civic society,” which will set priorities and oversee the financing of charities by public means …. The government has already prepared a bill, which has not yet been published on the parliament’s website. Authorities said they would consult the text with NGOs»

*

«Szydlo told reporters last week that a reform was needed because “billions of zlotys… go to foundations which are subordinate to the politics of previous ruling regimes …. accusing the groups of wanting to flood Europe with Muslim refugees and transform “Christian” nations into multicultural stews of left-wing globalism»

Se l’epurazione delle ngo era il primo passo, il secondo e fondamentale era quello di rimuovere i giudici socialisti e liberal, che esercitavano il proprio compito più a difesa della propria ideologia che per l’amministrazione della giustizia. Uno stato sovrano non può tollerare che sul proprio territorio operino associazioni palesemente finanziate dall’estero e che perseguano finalità destabilizzanti. Né può tollerare un deep state ideologicamente avverso.

Nessuno si è scandalizzato quando il Presidente Macron ha licenziato su due piedi il generale de Villiers

«If something puts the chief of the armed forces at odds with the president of the republic, the chief of the armed forces changes».

Orbene: se è cosa buona e giusta che Mr Macron epuri lo stato maggiore dell’esercito, perché al governo polacco dovrebbe essere negato il diritto di epurare il deep state?

*

Cercando di concludere, il dissidio che oppone la Polonia e gli stati del Visegrad coinvolge i principi primi dei sentimenti popolari: per essere chiari, le idee degli eurocrati – e dei tedeschi – sono inconciliabili con quelle dei polacchi.

Il problema sarebbe però facilmente risolvibile se l’Unione Europea abbandonasse i pruriti etici e morali che sottendono la visione degli Stati Uniti di Europa guidati da Mr Juncker o da persone di eguale ideologia. Fondamentali saranno quindi le elezioni europee del prossimo anno, che riverbereranno nel parlamento europeo il crollo dei partiti di sinistra già avvenuto nei singoli stati afferenti l’Unione. L’Unione Europea dovrebbe tornare ad essere una unione economica, senza velleità politiche.

Mr Heiko Maas e lunedì la Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel dovrebbero razionalizzare quanto i tempi siano mutati e, soprattutto, come potrebbero mutare ancor più velocemente nel prossimo futuro.


Deutsche Welle. 2018-03-17. Germany’s top diplomat Heiko Maas to revive trilateral talks with Poland and France

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas is seeking to reform the so-called “Weimar Triangle” of Germany, Poland and France. Maas told Warsaw officials that eastern EU states should take a leading role in Brussels.

*

Germany’s new top diplomat Heiko Maas appealed for Poland to take its place as one of the European Union’s leading decision makers, during a state visit to Warsaw on Friday.

Maas also called for the reintroduction of the so-called “Weimar Triangle” format — a policy forum created by the foreign ministers of Germany, France and Poland in 1991.

Such a move, he said, would show that discussions were not being led by Germany and France, but by the eastern European states as well.

It would be “very feasible for discussions on the future of Europe to be held in this format,” Maas said.

Although ministers from the three countries met a number of times in the Weimar Triangle format during the 1990s and 2000s, there have been no trilateral talks between Germany, France and Poland since the nationalist conservative Law and Justice Party (PiS) came to power in Warsaw in 2015.

Maas’ Polish counterpart, Jacek Czaputowicz, said he was in favor of reviving the cooperation between the three states.

The German minister’s visit precedes Chancellor Angela Merkel’s trip to Warsaw on Monday, where she is due to hold talks with Polish President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

This marked Maas’ second official visit as Berlin’s new top diplomat. On Wednesday, he visited Paris just hours after he formally took over the reins of Germany’s foreign ministry.

Strong ties despite differing views

Maas also used Friday’s trip to stress the close ties between the two neighbors and fellow EU members, despite the Polish government’s decision to break away from its allies on several issues, including law and immigration.

The conservative PiS government’s decision to introduce sweeping changes to its judiciary has drawn criticism from EU leaders. Warsaw, in turn, has accused Brussels of failing to respect its sovereignty and the right to make its own decisions.

“Despite different points of view here and there, Poland and Germany are indispensable neighbors and friends,” Maas said on Friday, adding that the horrors of World War II proved that close ties between the two states should never be taken for granted.

“During my talks in Warsaw today, I learned that many aspects from our past continue to raise very emotional issues in Poland, which cannot simply be pushed aside with sober rationalism,” Maas said.

Last month, Poland passed its so-called “Holocaust bill,” criminalizing statements concerning alleged Polish complicity in the Holocaust. Under the law, anyone found guilty of ascribing “responsibility or co-responsibility to the Polish nation or state for crimes committed by the German Third Reich” could face up to three years in prison.

Berlin’s reaction to the bill has been relatively muted, with Merkel and Sigmar Gabriel, Maas’ predecessor, only reiterating Germany’s unique guilt for the Holocaust.

Germania. Corte Costituzionale muta indirizzo e rottama gender e femminismo.

Giuseppe Sandro Mela.

2018-03-14__Germania. Corte Costituzionale __001

Premessa.

Nessuno è tenuto, se non per motivi di ufficio, a leggersi le sentenze rese dalla Bundesverfassungsgericht, la Corte Costituzionale tedesca. Per di più, il tedesco giuridico è di non facile comprensione, usando ovviamente molti termini tecnici.

Data però la eccezionalità del caso, riportiamo il testo pubblicato della (Verkündungstermin am 13. März 2018, 9.00 Uhr (Verhandlungstermin: 20.2.2018), in Sachen VI ZR 143/17 (Verwendung von Vordrucken, die eine spezifisch weibliche Personenbezeichnung vorsehen) per completezza informativa.

La Corte Costituzionale Federale tedesca ha emesso una sentenza che capovolge tutte le pregresse che aveva emesso in precedenza in materia.

* * * * * * *

«La Corte Costituzionale Federale tedesca (Bundesverfassungsgericht – BVerfG) è un’istituzione caratteristica della Repubblica federale tedesca nata nel dopoguerra. Ha sede nella città di Karlsruhe.

La Legge Fondamentale (così è denominata la Costituzione tedesca) le ha attribuito il diritto di annullare i provvedimenti legislativi che, seppur promulgati secondo le norme democratiche, vìolino i principi della Costituzione. È un organo di natura giurisdizionale formato da sedici giudici eletti per metà dai membri del Bundestag e per metà dal Bundesrat.

La Corte costituzionale federale non ha il potere d’intervenire d’ufficio, e i legittimati a presentare istanza alla Corte sono organi federali, il Presidente federale, il Bundestag, il Bundesrat, il Governo federale o organi ad esso appartenenti, i deputati, nonché i governi dei Länder. Essa interviene nei giudizi che hanno ad oggetto la separazione dei poteri garantita nella Legge Fondamentale.

Sono legittimati a presentare “ricorso costituzionale” i singoli cittadini che ritengano lesi i propri diritti fondamentali da parte di pubblici poteri. È organo esclusivo di interpretazione delle leggi costituzionali e per tutta la giurisdizione.

Tutti i giudici hanno l’obbligo di ricorrere alla Corte Costituzionale quando si trovino ad applicare una legge di cui ritengano dubbia la costituzionalità.» [Fonte]

Nel 1951 la Corte Costituzionale applicò il parteiverbot al partito comunista tedesco, mettendolo fuori legge. Operazione questa che, pur non essendo illegale, avrebbe dovuto essere di competenza del Bundestag.

* * * * * * *

Questa è la sentenza emessa il 13 marzo 2018.

(Verkündungstermin am 13. März 2018, 9.00 Uhr (Verhandlungstermin: 20.2.2018), in Sachen VI ZR 143/17 (Verwendung von Vordrucken, die eine spezifisch weibliche Personenbezeichnung vorsehen)

Sachverhalt:

Die Klägerin ist Kundin der beklagten Sparkasse. Diese verwendet im Geschäftsverkehr Formulare und Vordrucke, die neben Bezeichnungen wie etwa „Kunde“, „Kontoinhaber“, „Einzahler“ oder „Sparer“ keine ausdrücklich weibliche Form enthalten. Im persönlichen Gespräch und in persönlich adressierten Schreiben spricht die Beklagte die Klägerin mit „Frau […]“ an. Die Klägerin verlangt von der Beklagten, im Geschäftsverkehr mit ihr Vordrucke zu verwenden, in denen sie als weibliche Person („Kundin“, „Kontoinhaberin“, „Einzahlerin“, „Sparerin“) erscheint.

Bisheriger Prozessverlauf:

Das Amtsgericht hat die Klage abgewiesen. Die Berufung der Klägerin hat das Landgericht zurückgewiesen. Mit der vom Berufungsgericht zugelassenen Revision verfolgt die Klägerin ihren Antrag weiter.

In tedesco, come in molte altre lingue europee, la forma maschile di un sostantivo è generalmente usata anche come termine generico specifico per tutti gli altri sessi: quando la banca indica “cliente” tale termine si riferisce sia ai maschi, sia alle femmine, sia a generi indefiniti, sia a quelli indefinibili.

Questo comportamento, avallato da un lessicologia storica di lunga tradizione, è però contraria all’ideologia liberal ed a quella femminista.

Su questo argomento vi è stato un fiorire di cause in tutti i paesi occidentali, spesso arrivati alle Corti Costituzionali.

In sintesi.

La Suprema Corte di Karlsruhe ha stabilito che le donne non devono essere appellate con forme al femminile.

Con la sua sentenza, il tribunale ha respinto la denuncia di una signora anziana che aveva portato la sua banca, la Sparkasse, in tribunale per protestare contro la necessità di compilare moduli che si rivolgono a lei come un uomo, con il termine maschile. La signora si era sentita lesa in un suo diritto fondamentale.

La pensionata si era lamentata del fatto che la sua Sparkasse non fosse peritata di utilizzare un modulo al femminile (Kundin) per indirizzarle la corrispondenza; voleva anche che la parola femminile fosse utilizzata in tutti gli altri appellativi, ossia al posto di „Kontoinhaber“, „Einzahler“ oppure „Sparer“ utilizzasse i termini „Kontoinhaberin“, „Einzahlerin“, „Sparerin“.

Attualmente la banca riporta solo la forma maschile della parola cliente (Kunde) sui suoi moduli. Ora, a seguito della sentenza, i formulari standard non dovranno essere riformulati da banche, istituzioni statali e imprese private.

* * * * * * *

La sentenza potrebbe lasciare stupiti per la materia trattata: una Corte Costituzionale dovrebbe avere ben altri oggetti delle proprie attenzioni.

Invece liberal e femministe ne hanno fatto oggetto di aspra contesa, al punto di definire anti-democratici, tirannici, maschilisti, razzisti, etc, quanti si fossero opposti.

Questa sentenza non è solo un ritorno al buon senso comune in Germania, ed anche ad un tedesco decentemente parlato e scritto: è una ferma posizione politica che contrassegna il cambiamento dei tempi.

Karlsruhe. La Corte Suprema da ragione ad AfD nella causa al Governo.

Nota tecnica.

La pensionata riceva attualmente poco più di 1,300 euro netti mensili di pensione.

L’iter giuridico dalla prima Corte, a quella di Appello, a quella di Cassazione ed infine alla Suprema Corte Costituzionale ben difficilmente sarà costata meno di 300,000 euro, sempre che non si sia servita di principi del foro, gli emolumenti dei quali viaggiano nella stratosfera.

Sembrerebbe lecito domandarsi ci abbia sovvenzionato così generosamente la pensionata, supportandola sia umanamente sia legalmente. Si tenga conto che di cause analoghe ne sono state iscritte nei registri giudiziari federali oltre duecentocinquanta: il conto della spesa è facile.


The Local. 2018-03-13. Banks can keep addressing women as men, high court rules

Germany’s highest court in Karlsruhe on Tuesday ruled that women do not have to be addressed in forms as females.

With its ruling, the court rejected a woman’s complaint. The elderly lady had taken her Sparkasse bank to the high court in protest at having to fill out forms that address her as a man.

The pensioner had complained that it is not enough for her local Sparkasse to use the female form for customer (Kundin) to address her in correspondence; she also wanted them to use the female word ending in forms.

Currently the bank only puts the male form of the word customer (Kunde) on its forms. (In German, the male form of a noun is generally also used as the general non-gender specific term, ed.)

Now as a result of the ruling, standard forms will not have to be reformulated by banks, state institutions and private companies.

Un giorno o l’altro i liberal si dovranno ben rendere conto che il loro copione è stantio e sta rapidamente virando al grottesco. Nel frattempo continueranno a perdere consensi.

L’entusiasmo dei liberal democratici e delle femministe fu travolgente: finalmente si vedeva uno stato civile destinato alla prosperità massima. Femmina è bello al punto tale che i maschi si facciano femmina.

«Dopo otto anni di governo, la presidente Kirchner ha lasciato il Paese in difficili condizioni economiche: nel 2015 l’Argentina si trova in una situazione di stagnazione, il debito pubblico è in aumento (dal 45,3% del PIL del 2014 al 52,1% del 2015), la bilancia dei pagamenti è in negativo e l’inflazione è al 20% ….

Mauritius President Gurib-Fakim to resign over financial scandal

«Mauritian President Ameenah Gurib-Fakim, Africa’s only female head of state, is to quit over a financial row.

She has been accused of using a bank card provided by a charity to make personal purchases worth tens of thousands of dollars.

She is to step down after ceremonies to mark the 50th anniversary of the island’s independence next week.

Denying wrongdoing, she said she had refunded all the money, Reuters news agency reports.

Ms Gurib-Fakim is a renowned scientist and in 2015 became the first woman to be appointed to the ceremonial position of president of Mauritius.

“The president of the republic told me that she would resign from office and we agreed on the date of her departure,” Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth told reporters without giving the chosen date.

“The interest of the country comes first, and I am proud of Mauritius’s image as a model of living democracy in the world.”

He added it would take place before parliament returned at the end of the month.

The Mauritian daily L’Express published bank documents purporting to show Ms Gurib-Fakim had used a credit card given to her by the Planet Earth Institute (PEI) in London to buy thousands of dollars worth of clothes, jewellery and other personal items.

According to the paper, the card was given to her as part of her work as an unpaid director for the charity.

One of the organisation’s directors is Angolan businessman Alvaro Sobrinho who, the paper says, secured a permit to found an investment bank in Mauritius, prompting allegations of favouritism.»

Indonesia. La società civile si ribella e riporta l’omosessualità nel codice penale.

Giuseppe Sandro Mela.

Indonesia 005

La società civile indonesiana si è alla fine ribellata alla presenza sul suo territorio di ngo che perseguono fini in contrasto con la tradizione religiosa, storica e culturale del proprio paese. La società civile non fa sentire la sua voce nelle piazze o sui media: si esprime e si conta dai risultati elettorali.

«Within weeks, lawmakers could vote on a new law that looks set to criminalize sex outside of marriage and homosexual sex in Indonesia, as part of wide-reaching changes to the country’s criminal code.»

E siamo solo agli inizi.

*

«L’Indonesia, conosciuto ufficialmente come Repubblica di Indonesia, è uno Stato del sud-est asiatico. Composto da 17 507 isole, è il più grande Stato-arcipelago del mondo. Con una popolazione di 255.461.700 abitanti è il quarto Paese più popoloso del mondo dopo la Cina, l’India e gli Stati Uniti e prima del Brasile, e il più popoloso paese a maggioranza musulmana.

L’Indonesia è una repubblica democratica presidenziale. La capitale nazionale è la città di Giacarta. Le frontiere terrestri del paese sono con Malesia nell’isola del Borneo, con Papua Nuova Guinea nell’isola di Nuova Guinea e con Timor Est nell’isola di Timor. Altri paesi vicini sono Singapore, Filippine, Australia ed India (isole Andamane e Nicobare). ….

L’Islam fu introdotto dai mercanti stranieri. ….

Il motto nazionale indonesiano, che si trova sorretto dalla leggendaria Garuda, ossia l’aquila mitologica che ne orna il blasone, è emblematico in questo senso: Bhinneka tunggal ika (“Uniti nelle diversità”, letteralmente “Molti, ma uno”). ….

L’Indonesia è il più popoloso paese a maggioranza musulmana del mondo, con quasi l’86,2% della popolazione di fede musulmana secondo il censimento del 2000. Il 5,6% della popolazione è protestante, il 3% cattolico, il 1,8% indù, e il 3,4% altro. Il governo riconosce ufficialmente sei religioni (l’Islam, il protestantesimo, il cattolicesimo, l’induismo, il buddhismo e il confucianesimo), ma la libertà religiosa è prevista dalla costituzione indonesiana ed i rapporti tra le comunità religiose sono in genere molto pacifici.» [Fonte]

L’Indonesia ha un pil procapite di 3,594 Usd, ossia un pil ppa procapite di 11,126 Usd. È un paese in crescita.

È del tutto sequenziale che l’Indonesia si appresti a far tornare l’omosessualità come reato contemplato dal codice penale: lo ripetiamo solo per ulteriore chiarezza, la società civile si esprime e si conta nelle urne, non nei proclami veicolati da giornali stranieri.


Bbc. 2018-02-26. Fear and horror among Indonesia’s LGBT community as gay sex ban looms

When Ael left home to go to school in Jakarta, his parents warned him to be careful in the big city. “Be a kind person,” his mother told him.

He worked hard and found a good job as a teacher in the sprawling Indonesian capital, but seven years later the 23-year-old is fearful for his future as a young gay man in a country which increasingly views homosexuality as a sin and, potentially soon, a crime.

“Many people don’t like us … they don’t like us being more visible, so they are preparing laws that can criminalize us,” Ael, who asked for his surname to not be used, told CNN.

Within weeks, lawmakers could vote on a new law that looks set to criminalize sex outside of marriage and homosexual sex in Indonesia, as part of wide-reaching changes to the country’s criminal code.

“If the penal code is approved, I don’t know our future in Indonesia,” Ael said.

It is just the latest move in a widespread crackdown on Indonesia’s gay and lesbian community since 2015, which has shocked and horrified the country’s LGBT population.

Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim-majority country, home to hundreds of millions of followers of the Islamic faith, but until recently it was relatively tolerant, if not exactly accepting, of its LGBT population.

But in the last decade a conservative strain of Islam, quietly tolerated by presidents past and present, has gained sway, with conservative Muslim leaders and groups intimidating lawmakers, holding mass rallies in Jakarta and targeting prominent Christian and LGBT minorities.

“(Recently) when LGBT Indonesians open our social media, quickly we find there are lots of people speaking hatefully about us,” Ael said.

“As a gay person and a young person in Indonesia this issue has actually become dangerous for us.”

The local LGBT community isn’t alone in worrying about the developments. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said at a press conference in Jakarta on February 7 he was “greatly concerned” about the proposed revisions of the penal code.

He said the proposed amendments were “discriminatory” and appeared to be planned for “cynical political purposes.”

‘Indonesian values and culture’

In one of the latest drafts of the bill seen by CNN, committing an “obscene act” with someone of the same gender is punishable by a fine and up to 18 months in jail, if the act is public. It doesn’t detail what could constitute an obscene act.

If the acts are “publicized in the form of pornography,” the sentence could be up to nine years.

Activists had breathed a sigh of relief in December 2017, when Indonesia’s Constitutional Court narrowly voted down a call for the criminalization of LGBT relations brought by a group of conservative Muslims. But the court’s decision now appears to have only been a temporary reprieve.

No date has been set for the vote on the new criminal code, but a conservative lawmaker told CNN strict new restrictions against same sex-relations and extramarital sex will be included, no matter what.

“Basically all factions in the Parliament agree on the expansion of extra-marital sex articles and the inclusion of certain deviating acts of LGBT,” said Arsul Sani, a politician with the conservative Islamic United Development Party (PPP).

Sani, who has a seat on the influential law and human rights panel that will approve the draft criminal code, said criminalizing sex outside marriage and same-sex relations will bring Indonesia’s outdated criminal code in line with the rest of the country’s “religious values.”

“Those who oppose (the law) base their perspectives on Western cultures and values, whilst we propose this new criminal code upon Indonesian indigenous values and culture,” he said.

While many conservative Islamic Indonesian politicians would like same-sex relations to be banned entirely, the existence of large, secular majority parties could lead to the compromise of seeing it only outlawed “in public.”

Sani’s fellow panel member Ichsan Soelistio, lawmaker with the secular Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), said while it was true there was majority support for the new criminal code, full criminalization of same-sex relations is out of the question.

“We (will) still protect their private lives, including their sex life, as long as they don’t do it in a public area,” he told CNN.

Soelistio said the law couldn’t reach into people’s private lives if there was no complaints from the parties involved.

“This will go to a vote maybe around one or two months after our recess, which ends on March 4 … I believe (the new code) will be good for Indonesia,” he said.

Despite its widely held Muslim beliefs, Indonesia’s population didn’t always openly discriminate against LGBT people.

“Indonesia has a long history of tolerance towards queer communities. It’s always been described as one of the most tolerant countries in Southeast Asia to its queer population,” Tim Lindsey, director of the Center for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society at the University of Melbourne, told CNN.

But a recent poll by Saiful Mujani Research and Consulting released in January found 87.6% of Indonesians believed LGBT people were a threat to Indonesia, while a 2013 Pew Research poll found 93% of Indonesians thought homosexuality was “morally unacceptable.

However despite many citizens’ deeply-held Islamic beliefs, not everyone is in favor of the complete criminalization of homosexuality.

Jakarta resident, Viana, told CNN that while her Muslim faith prohibited homosexuality she didn’t want LGBT people to be sent to jail.

“I don’t want homosexuality to spread (but) I think it should not be criminalized. Rather people should get better religious education,” she said.

More than 70,000 people have signed a petition, started by women’s rights activists, calling for lawmakers to throw out the new draft but experts say that secular politicians are unlikely to take up the cause.

‘Sissies’

In recent months Indonesian authorities have grown bolder in their attacks on the country’s LGBT population.

Before dawn on January 28, police raided beauty salons in conservative Aceh province, dragging 12 transgender women out to the streets. The women were then shaved, taken into custody and forced to act as men.

In a video taken shortly after the raid, North Aceh Police Chief Ahmad Untung Surianata speaks to a crowd that gathered to watch the arrests, describing the group of women as part of a “disease.”

“This “disease” is contagious and growing … It is inhumane if I let the number of sissies increase in this area,” he tells the crowd.

Speaking to CNN days after the incident, Surianata insisted it had not been an anti-LGBT operation but instead a drug raid to investigate reports of crystal meth being circulated in the area.

Jakarta-based activist Kate Walton said the violence shocked and horrified Indonesia’s already nervous LGBT community.

“One concerning element was that the police chief said he had the right to do this because he had consulted with Islamic leaders beforehand,” she said.

“So people are starting to ask — who is really in charge in Aceh? The government or the religious leaders?”

The rise of powerful Islamic conservatives in Indonesia, mostly unopposed by senior politicians, has emboldened authorities with a low opinion of LGBT people to act against them.

Hundreds of Indonesian men have been arrested by police in raids on gay saunas and private events across Java, ostensibly for breaking pornography laws, while local media reported more than a dozen LGBT apps have been made unavailable inside the country at the government’s request.

UN Human Rights head Zeid said he found the recent “extremist views” playing out across Indonesia “deeply worrying,” during his visit in February.

“Accompanied as they are by rising levels of incitement to discrimination, hatred or violence in various parts of the country, including Aceh,” he said.

“Islamophobia is wrong. Discrimination on the basis of religious beliefs and color is wrong. Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or any other status is wrong,” he said.

‘We should fight together’

It’s no coincidence the brutal crackdown on LGBT Indonesians and the showdown over the criminal code comes just before a series of national elections, set to take place over the next 14 months.

Local elections for governors and mayors across Indonesia’s dozens of provinces are due to take place in June 2018, while Indonesian President Joko Widodo faces a battle for re-election in April 2019.

Indonesian politicians are scared to oppose conservative Muslim groups after they were instrumental in the toppling and imprisonment of once-popular Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, also known as Ahok, in May 2017, Human Rights Watch researcher Andreas Harsono said.

“Many Islamist leaders are going to put pressure on every politician (to pass the criminal code) … Many politicians in a conservative country like Indonesia will think twice before standing up for an LGBT individual,” he said.

It isn’t unusual for harsh rhetoric against minorities such as LGBT Indonesians to be used prior to an election to gain votes, but unlike in previous political cycles, experts believe the current hostile environment could be here to stay.

There is no confirmed date for when the final vote on the criminal code will come, or what form the final legislation might take. A vote was postponed in mid-February and activists say it could take place in April, when the next plenary session in Indonesia’s parliament is scheduled.

Despite the looming possibility of criminalization and even a jail sentence, Ael said he had never for a moment thought about leaving Indonesia, despite the growing hostility towards LGBT people such as himself.

“I’ve never imagined that situation because we should fight for this issue. Who will work for this issue if all of us young people go out from this country?” he told CNN.

“We are the future of this country so we should fight for this issue. We should fight together.”

Reuters. 2018-02-31. French Greenpeace activists convicted over nuclear plant intrusion

PARIS (Reuters) – Greenpeace France anti-nuclear activists have been given prison sentences for breaking into a nuclear plant last year, during a protest to highlight the plant’s vulnerability to attack.

Late on Tuesday, a court in northern France fined Greenpeace 20,000 euros ($24,440) for breaking into the Cattenom nuclear plant in October and ordered it to pay 50,000 euros in damages to the plant’s operator, state-owned utility EDF. EDF had asked for compensation of 700,000 euros.

Nine Greenpeace activists were sentenced in connection with the case.

Seven received five-month suspended jail terms. Two who had taken part in similar protests before were sentenced to two months in jail, although in France such short terms are usually converted into work in the community.

Greenpeace said it would appeal against the fine, damages and sentences, saying it was the first time that its members had been convicted to firm jail terms in France.

No date has been set for the appeal hearing, but appeals often take a year or more.

In October, Greenpeace activists broke through two security barriers and launched fireworks over EDF’s Cattenom nuclear plant to highlight the vulnerability of French nuclear plants’ spent-fuel pools to outside attacks.

EDF said it had asked for damages under the 2015 Ganay law set up to protect nuclear plants against intruders.

“EDF wanted to hit our budget in order to block future actions. This will not stop us from denouncing the security risks of its nuclear plants,” Greenpeace’s Cyrille Cormier said.

On May 17, Greenpeace will appear in a second court case in Privas, southern France, for a similar intrusion in the Cruas nuclear plant in November.

Tra un anno e mezzo si terranno le elezioni regionali: in quelle del 2015 il Front National dimostrò essere il primo partito di Francia con il 27.73% dei voti.

Macron Aims to Keep Migrants, and Far Right, at Bay in France [The New York Times]

«PARIS — European countries from Poland to Italy and Britain are shutting borders, stepping up deportations and making unsavory deals with warlords in Libya to restrict migrants. Now comes France’s turn.

The government of President Emmanuel Macron this week put forward a draft law that even some of his own supporters said was too harsh. Human rights groups say it is intended to make it easier to expel would-be asylum seekers.

But in presenting the proposal this week, Mr. Macron’s interior minister, Gerard Collomb, made no bones about its other aim: to head off the political challenge of the far right.

The migrant issue “is a problem that can lead to difficulties” — meaning political difficulties — he told reporters on Wednesday, before getting into the details of the law.»

Macron reform of migration laws ‘dangerous’: French president’s proposals ‘lack dignity’ [Express]

«President Emmanuel Macron’s new immigration policy is “unbalanced” and “potentially dangerous,” a spokesperson for France’s Socialist Party said on Wednesday.

The centrist government has insisted the new legislation is totally “in line with European law”.

However, others have labelled it extreme.

Socialist party coordinator Rachid Temal said: “The new immigration and asylum bill proposed during today’s cabinet meeting is obviously unbalanced and potentially dangerous.

“Although some of the changes are a step in the right direction, the key measures [contained in the bill] constitute a violation of civil rights and of the right of defence. [The measures] weaken the right to asylum – which is something the government had pledged to defend – and break with France’s tradition of refugee protection.

“This text focuses on controlling migration flows by dissuading migrants from seeking asylum in France. But it does not focus on dignity and on the need to improve the protection of migrants.”

The left-wing senator continued, adding that his party would suggest amendments to modify the bill.

The controversial law, which was put to parliament on Wednesday, will double to 90 days the time in which illegal immigrants can be detained, shorten deadlines to apply for asylum from 120 to 90 days and make illegal border crossings an offence punishable by one year in prison and fines.»

Macron’s ‘repressive’ migrant law faces rough ride in parliament [The Local]

Staff at France’s asylum court and the Ofpra refugee protection office are even set to strike Wednesday over a law that unions have blasted as “an unquestionable break with France’s tradition of asylum”.

The Guardian. 2018-02-22. This migrant crackdown has exposed the brutal limits of Macron’s liberalism

His assertion that ‘France is back’ rings hollow: you can’t lead the world into a liberal era while punishing refugees at home

*

On Wednesday the French minister of the interior, Gérard Collomb, presented the details of a heavily trailed new law on immigration to Emmanuel Macron’s cabinet. Given the long buildup to this announcement – with the government adopting a resolutely “firm” posture on immigration – the details outlined will come as little surprise. But they can teach us about the brutal limits of liberalism that Macron’s politics embody so immaculately.

The new law plays on an old trope: it is framed in terms that entrench the division between “asylum seekers” and “economic migrants”. This division, so flippantly cited by the political class and yet so difficult to distinguish in law, will be reinforced by a tightening of the right to asylum. And yet, ultimately, the changes announced will be worse for all migrants.

Emmanuel Macron unveils plans to crack down on immigration

The law is also intended to bring France into line with its European partners – greater European integration being one of Macron’s leitmotifs. In his announcement to the press, Collomb made no attempt to dress this up as anything other than what it is: a race to the bottom. “It is totally necessary – regarding countries like Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, or Sweden – that we have the same types of procedures. Because if you don’t have the same types of procedures, clearly, one looks at where it is easiest to gain asylum, and then everyone goes to that country.” One would be hard pressed to paint a more discouraging portrait of the politics of the European Union.

The key measures outlined in the new law are as follows. First, the government is proposing to speed up asylum procedures. The amount of time people have to apply for asylum will be reduced from 120 days to 90. Those whose cases are rejected will see the time they have to appeal against the decision cut in half, from 30 days to 15. This has a particularly Macronesque touch: it is intended to show that the government is accelerating the process for “deserving” asylum seekers while cracking down on the rest – in other words, it hopes to add a gloss of just efficiency to an otherwise punitive set of measures. In reality, this change will probably make things harder for asylum seekers by reducing the amount of time they have to pull together a coherent case.

Second, the maximum length of time spent in a detention centre will be doubled, from 45 to 90 days. This measure is cruel in its sheer futility: it is proved to have no bearing on the government’s stated aim – itself reprehensible – of deporting more people (the idea being that it will give the authorities more time to reach an agreement with the detainee’s home country).

As pointed out by France’s foremost migrant charity, La Cimade, the previous increase from 30 to 45 days in 2011 saw a decrease in the number deportations. Furthermore, France deports substantially more people than the UK or Germany, despite the fact that people can be detained for as long as 18 months in those two countries. Tripling the length of detention is purely performative, to demonstrate the state’s stringency, and the only real effect will be to increase suffering.

Finally, the new law includes a range of measures to dissuade migrants from entering France and make it easier for them to be deported when they do so. Border patrols will be given new powers to carry out checks in migrant and homeless shelters. Police will be given longer to summarily deport people before being obliged to bring them before a judge. The length of time that suspected illegal immigrants can be detained in police stations will be increased from 16 hours to 24 hours. And prison sentences will be introduced for certain cases – one year for entering the country without using a recognised border crossing and five years for using fake identification papers.

These measures have been widely criticised by policy experts as well as those working on the ground to help new arrivals. Migrants, supported by students, have occupied university buildings in Nantes, Grenoble, Lyon and Paris in defiance of the government’s hard line. Lawyers and administrative staff of the national asylum court are on strike for the eighth day running. But the criticism has not stopped there. The unity of Macron’s own party, En Marche, has been shaken, with several deputies expressing concerns in the lead-up to the announcements on 21 February. In the press, Macron is being presented as tougher on immigration than Sarkozy – which on paper, if not in rhetoric, is incontestable.

Why, then, is Macron pursuing such a policy? The simple answer lies in opinion polls, which suggest that French voters want more border controls. But such explanations miss the bigger picture. Up until now, the political direction of Macron’s presidency has paid little attention to polling or public opinion: just look at the way he rammed through unpopular reforms to French labour law via a series of top-down ordinances.

This policy is neither an electoral calculation nor an unfortunate pragmatic necessity – it must stem from Macron’s own convictions. Liberalism has a long history of drawing sharp lines between those who get to enjoy the fruits of freedom and equality and those who do not.

This can be observed in France’s history. At certain rare moments, the idea of France – inherited from the French revolution of 1789 – as self-declared universal beacon of human rights, entailed stretching the concept of the nation to breaking point. In his magisterial account of the Haitian slave revolution of 1791, The Black Jacobins, CLR James describes how liberty and equality, the watchwords of the French revolution, crossed borders indiscriminately, spreading like wildfire through Haiti and beyond. It was the forefathers of modern-day liberalism that consistently sought to rein in this revolutionary process by attempting to exclude certain categories of people – “mulattoes”, slaves – from the freshly declared Rights of Man.

Macron’s new immigration law places him in this tradition of exclusionary French liberalism. It represents a shrinking from the universal role that France has so long imagined for itself – and that Macron seemed so keen to rekindle (with a sprinkling of Silicon Valley jargon for good measure). His recent assertion – “France is back” – rings hollow. One cannot lead the world into a new liberal era while punishing migrants and refugees in one’s own backyard. In doing so, Macron has exposed the meagre confines of his humanism, and shown how liberalism, in drawing a sharp line at the border, falls short on the most basic questions of solidarity.

«Opinion polls shows Fidesz, Mr Orban’s party, is on course to win a huge victory in the election. A rolling average of opinion polls ahead of the contest shows his party on over 50 per cent of the vote, which would give them a majority.

«At least part of the new law would require a two-thirds majority in the parliament to pass because it affects the “basic law” of the country’s constitution»

Sotto la condizione che le attuali prospezioni elettorali siano corrette, il Fidesz potrebbe ottenere la maggioranza dei deputati, forse anche in numero tale da poter da solo varare leggi costituzionali.

Nel caso della legge sulle ngo di Mr Soros però sembrerebbe ragionevole prospettare anche il voto favorevole del Jobbik, che apporterebbe un surplus del 17% del totale dei deputati eletti.

Di conseguenza, sembrerebbe essere ragionevole prospettare che la legge sulle ngo possa essere approvata in tempi rapidi.

In questa maniera l’Ungheria assumerebbe le posizioni prese da tempo da quasi tutto il resto del mondo civile. E nessuno potrebbe negare che i risultati delle urne non siano espressione democratica.

Reuters. 2018-02-14. Hungary submits anti-immigration ‘Stop Soros’ bill to parliament

BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungary’s nationalist government introduced legislation that would empower the interior minister to ban non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that support migration and pose a “national security risk”.

The bill, submitted to parliament late on Tuesday, is a key part of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s anti-immigration campaign targeting U.S. financier George Soros whose philanthropy aims to bolster liberal and open-border values in eastern Europe.

The government says the bill, which would also impose a 25 percent tax on foreign donations to NGOs that back migration in Hungary, is meant to deter illegal immigration Orban says is eroding European stability and has been stoked in part by Soros.

Hungary and Poland are both under nationalist governments that have clashed with the European Union leadership in Brussels over their perceived authoritarian drift deviating from EU standards on democracy and rule of law.

But Orban’s message, championing conservative Christian beliefs and rejecting multiculturalism, has gone down well with Hungarian voters and his Fidesz party is expected to secure a third straight term in a general election due on April 8.

The bill says that NGOs that “sponsor, organize or support the entry or stay of third-country citizens on Hungarian territory via a safe third country to extend international protection … qualify as organizations supporting migration”.

Such activity – including campaigning, advocacy, recruiting volunteers, producing information booklets – would have to be approved by the interior minister, who could deny permission if he saw a “national security risk”.

If an NGO continued with such activity, Hungarian prosecutors could act to withdraw the NGO’s tax number, essentially paralyzing them, slap them with heavy fines and ultimately dissolve them.

TAX BITE

Organizations that support migration will have to pay tax on the foreign funding or assets they receive, the bill says, with a possible exemption on funding that serves humanitarian goals.

Activists who organize or support migration could also face restraining orders preventing them from approaching the EU’s external borders in Hungary.

Orban has been embroiled in an escalating “Stop Soros” feud with the 87-year-old Hungarian-born Jew, waging a billboard and media campaign asserting that he would “settle millions from Africa and the Middle East”.

Soros has rejected the campaign against him as “distortions and lies” meant to create a false external enemy.

Pro-government media reported earlier that the new legislation could lead to a ban on Soros, who has U.S. and Hungarian citizenship, entering the country.

The Hungarian Helsinki Committee, an NGO that has been providing support for the legal and human rights of various groups including asylum seekers and prisoners since 1994, said the bill was unacceptable and served political goals.

“(Its goal) is to stigmatize certain civil organizations that the government does not like… and to distance them from society, and in the end make their operation impossible,” the committee, which receives a major chunk of its funding from Soros, said in a statement.

Poland, Hungary and other ex-communist eastern member states of the EU have all pushed a strong anti-immigrant stance, even though the number of asylum seekers who want to stay in these countries are very few compared to western European countries.

Last year, the Orban government introduced a measure requiring NGOs that get money from abroad to register with the state, raising alarm in the EU and United States.

The European Commission said last year it was taking Budapest to the EU’s top court over its NGO laws as well as a higher education law that targets the Central European University in Budapest founded by Soros.


Independent. 2018-02-15. Hungary’s right-wing government plans law allowing it to ban organisations that help immigrants

Viktor Orban’s government unveils policy ahead of country’s general election.

*

The right-wing populist Hungarian government of Viktor Orban has outlined plans for a new law that would give it the power to ban civil society groups that help immigrants and refugees.

The measure is one of the planks in Mr Orban’s drive against US financier George Soros, who has been the target of a state-backed national hate campaign because of his funding of liberal projects.

The law defines organisations that helps migrants as any NGOs that “sponsor, organise or otherwise support a third-country national’s entry or stay in Hungary via a safe third country in order to ensure international protection”.

Hungary’s interior minister, the equivalent of its Home Secretary, would have to grant approval and a permit for any such organisation to operate, and could prevent them from doing any work on “national security” grounds. 

The definition in the law covers organisations that do legal work, campaign, distributing information or recruiting volunteers with the aim of helping foreign nationals.

The new law would also require NGOs that did gain approval to pay a special 25 per cent tax on any international funding aimed at helping migrants and refugees. 

Under the bill, activists for NGOs could also be issued with restraining orders to prevent them from going near Hungary’s borders, in order to hinder their work.

International NGOs condemned the new bill, which was introduced to the Hungarian Parliament ahead of elections to be held on 8 April this year.

“This law would give the government carte blanche to target NGOs on the flimsiest of pretexts,” Gauri van Gulik, Europe director of Amnesty International said.

“In reality, these proposals have nothing to do with protecting national security or borders, and everything with muzzling those who work to assist people in need and dare to raise their voices.

“We call on Hungary to withdraw this bill, and it is high time for EU leaders, who have watched on the sidelines as Hungary crossed red line after red line, to finally take concrete action to stop this assault on civil society.”

Mr Orban has campaigned heavily on the issue of immigration to Hungary and claimed that the law will prevent the giving up of “national independence” and hinder politicians who he claimed wanted to “transform Hungary into an immigrant country”.

Opinion polls shows Fidesz, Mr Orban’s party, is on course to win a huge victory in the election. A rolling average of opinion polls ahead of the contest shows his party on over 50 per cent of the vote, which would give them a majority. Polling in second place on 17 per cent is Jobbik, an extreme far-right party, while the centre-left social democrats trial in third position on around 12 per cent.

At least part of the new law would require a two-thirds majority in the parliament to pass because it affects the “basic law” of the country’s constitution.
