Canada: Challenge causes and consequences of poverty

first_img Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC PWRDF’s Adele Finney and CWLR’s Robert Granke tell members of Joint Assembly about the work of their agencies. Photo: Art Babych, Anglican Journal[Anglican Journal] Members of Joint Assembly were offered insight into the work of the Anglican Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund and the Canadian Lutheran World Relief when Michael Pryse, Lutheran bishop of the Eastern Synod, interviewed PWRDF executive director Adele Finney and CLWR executive director Robert Granke.Pryse asked both to describe what they do in their work and on behalf of Canadian Lutherans and Anglicans. Granke said his work starts with CLWR’s mission, “which is to challenge the causes and consequences of poverty.” That mission is also part of the mission of the church to serve in the name of Christ, he said. “CLWR provides an opportunity to do that and enable people of faith to be able to serve and respond to global needs in a collective way.”Finney said that PWRDF works toward “a truly just, healthy and peaceful world. We focused in on food security, preventive health and microfinance.” A question Finney says she often asks is, “How does what we plan to do support vulnerable people to become agents of change in their own lives and in their communities’ lives?” She pointed to the example of PWRDF’s partnership with a group of refugees who fled to India from Sri Lanka. Some have been in India now for 30 years, but from the beginning they focused on education, learning peace-making skills that would help them build a future. They also began production of a nutritional supplement, spirulina, and now they train others.Granke spoke of  a visit to a community in Ethiopia that CLWR had supported 30 years ago, assisting with irrigation, potable water and training for farmers. “To walk into this community and see what is basically an oasis in the middle of what is basically a desert in Eastern Ethiopia and to see that this community is thriving 30 years later…was really gratifying.”Looking to the future, Granke said CLWR is facing a real challenge because its funding from the Canadian government ends this year. CIDA is now being absorbed into the department of foreign affairs and trade, and Granke said NGOs are monitoring the situation, hoping that the focus on humanitarian aid will not be diminished in favour of trade interests.“There are no opportunities at this moment for us to seek additional funding from CIDA, from the historical sources, so we’re having to be creative and look at ways in which we can draw other resources in the future.”CIDA, in fact, is being integrated into the department of foreign affairs and international trade.  “We as a faith-based community and as NGOs in Canada are taking steps to monitor this. One of the key issues for us is to ensure that the integrity of the official development assistance act that Canada has had for many years is kept intact and that the focus is on humanitarian assistance…The risk is that more of this will go to serve our own agenda, which is more trade focused.” Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Collierville, TN Course Director Jerusalem, Israel In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Submit a Job Listing Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA By Leigh Anne WilliamsPosted Jul 8, 2013 Rector Albany, NY Anglican Communion, The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Submit a Press Release Featured Events AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Washington, DC Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Hopkinsville, KY The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Tags Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT center_img An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Curate Diocese of Nebraska An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Bath, NC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Compañeros visitan y expresan su solidaridad con episcopales ecuatorianos

first_imgCompañeros visitan y expresan su solidaridad con episcopales ecuatorianos La recuperación física y emocional del terremoto puede tardar años Por Lynette Wilson Posted Jun 17, 2016 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Submit a Press Release Youth Minister Lorton, VA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Tags Rector Belleville, IL An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Press Release Service Submit an Event Listing Curate Diocese of Nebraska Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Pittsburgh, PA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Director of Music Morristown, NJ [Episcopal News Service – Manta, Ecuador] Los pobres, las mujeres y los niños son los que más sufren las secuelas de un desastre. En Ecuador, donde un enorme terremoto mató a más de 650 personas y desplazó a más de 30.000 en abril, las mujeres y los niños, además del trauma, el pesar y las heridas emocionales sufridas, han experimentado aumentos en las tasas de violencia doméstica y el hambre ha provocado un aumento de enfermedades gastrointestinales y respiratorias en los niños.Esta realidad que trajo las secuelas del terremoto no hace titulares ni se presta a las fotografías, pero los vicarios que atienden aquí cuatro misiones de la Diócesis de Ecuador Litoral la confrontan a diario en sus comunidades. Además, es una realidad que durante cuatro días, del 9 al 12 de junio, la aprendieron de primera mano representantes de cuatro iglesias compañeras de la Diócesis de Tennessee.Durante una reunión informal en la misión de San José Obrero, el Rdo. José Cantos Delgado, diácono encargado, describió la situación. La iglesia, que sufrió daños estructurales menores, está localizada en el 15 de Abril, un cantón donde viven “los más pobres de los pobres” y donde los ocupantes ilegales, comunes en América latina, han construido estructuras de bambú, ladrillo y contrachapado detrás de la iglesia.“Ecuador tiene uno de los índices más elevados de abuso infantil en Sudamérica”, dijo Cantos, añadiendo que el terremoto y las tensiones que se le asocian, inseguridad alimentaria y pérdidas de empleos, han dado lugar a un aumento de la violencia doméstica en que las mujeres intentan proteger a sus hijos y protegerse ellas mismas.San José Obrero dirige una guardería infantil para los niños de la comunidad, donde las lecciones diarias se centran, después del terremoto, en el bienestar emocional de los niños más que en el aprendizaje.“La escuela es el vehículo para ayudar a los niños y a sus madres, y esa es la más fundamental forma de ayuda”, dijo Cantos. “Es importante seguir trabajando con las mujeres y los niños porque ellos son los más afectados”.El terremoto de 7,8 de magnitud azotó a la altura de la costa central el 16 de abril en lo que las personas que lo vivieron describen como una “onda larga y lenta” que llevó a muchos a temer que seguiría un tsunami. Además de los centenares que murieron, más de 12.000 personas sufrieron lesiones. Y una semana después, las réplicas continuaban sacudiendo el país y los nervios de la gente.Compañeros de la Diócesis de Tennessee posan junto con miembros de [la iglesia de] Santiago Apóstol en La Pila, una pequeña comunidad a 40 minutos en auto de Manta. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS[La Iglesia Episcopal de] Ecuador está dividida en dos diócesis, la Diócesis de Ecuador Central, con sede en Quito, y Ecuador Litoral, que se extiende desde Guayaquil, la ciudad más grande y capital financiera del país, hasta el norte a lo largo de la costa, una zona popular de turistas e inmigrantes.El terremoto causó daños estructurales que se calculan en $4.000 millones, una cifra estratosférica en un país económicamente asediado por la caída de los precios del petróleo y ahora también por un descenso del turismo.“Nadie estaba preparado para el terremoto; fue como una película”, dijo la Rda. Betty Juárez Villamar, la única mujer sacerdote de la región, que atiende tanto la iglesia episcopal de San Esteban, a corta distancia en auto de San José Obrero, y la iglesia episcopal de San Pablo cerca de la playa.En la comunidad costera de Manta —a unas 3,5 horas en auto hacia el norte desde Guayaquil— los edificios dañados están esparcidos por toda la ciudad y más de 580 ya han sido demolidos. La “zona cero”, un distrito comercial de poco más de 2 hectáreas, ya está acordonado para la demolición. Muchas personas viven en campamentos improvisados que han construido con materiales rescatados y otras viven en tiendas de campaña en el exterior de sus hogares o en el perímetro de la zona. Algunos residentes desplazados viven en zonas custodiadas y en tiendas azules proporcionadas por el gobierno de China.La primera prioridad de la diócesis fue contribuir a que las familias lograran una sensación de paz y seguridad en el tiempo que siguió al terremoto, dijo Alfredo Morante, el obispo de Ecuador Litoral. Además de eso, la diócesis intenta ayudar  a las personas a reconstruir sus casas y a encontrar empleo.Una de las formas de ayudar a aliviar la presión y la tensión sobre las familias es proporcionarles a las personas un espacio para contar sus historias y comenzar a recuperarse del trauma provocado por el terremoto.El Rdo. Jairo Chiran Guillén, diácono y vicario encargado de Santiago Apóstol en La Pila, habla durante el taller de respuesta al desastre que tuvo lugar el 11 de junio en San José Obrero. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENSDesde 1998, los compañeros de Tennessee han hecho visitas anuales a Ecuador. En la noche del 11 de junio, dirigieron un taller de respuesta al desastre para instruir a las personas respecto a las etapas de duelo y la importancia de priorizar la salud espiritual y mental.Además de la de San José Obrero, el grupo visitó otras tres iglesias para escuchar las historias de los miembros de la comunidad y expresar su solidaridad y su preocupación.“Parte de nuestra relación a lo largo de los últimos 20 años ha sido compartir nuestras historias; para nosotros los de Tennessee es importante escuchar”, dijo George Kurz, que coordina las relaciones de compañerismo y quien codirigió los talleres junto a Sarena Pettit. “Volveremos a Tennessee y compartiremos las historias de ustedes. Contar sus historias es parte de la recuperación.“Es importante para todos ustedes ser pacientes y generosos los unos con los otros en tanto continúan contando sus historias”.Virginia María Quijije Lucas toma notas durante el taller de respuesta al desastre el 11 de junio. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENSEl taller del 11 de junio se basó en un material de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo para abordar las necesidades de personas que acuden a la iglesia en busca de ayuda luego de un desastre. Al taller en San José Obrero asistieron más de 50 personas, muchas de las cuales vinieron en autobús de [la congregación] de Santiago Apóstol en La Pila, una zona que queda a unos 40 minutos de distancia por carretera.Luego de aprender acerca del ciclo vital emocional de un desastre, los participantes se dividieron en cuatro grupos más pequeños y sostuvieron discusiones en base a lecturas bíblicas —Salmo 6 y los capítulos 11 y 12 de Mateo— y una serie de preguntas con vistas a procesar el sufrimiento y la importancia del cuidado personal.Como compañeras, las iglesias de Tennessee mantienen a sus homólogas ecuatorianas en sus pensamientos y en la Oración de los Fieles.“Estamos con ustedes en espíritu y en oración”, dijo Pettit —miembro de [la iglesia de] San José de Arimatea [St. Joseph of Arimathea] en Hendersonville, quien también sirve como intérprete de español para el grupo— durante una visita a Santiago Apóstol en La Pila. “Todas las semanas oramos por ustedes en nuestras iglesias y estamos aquí para ayudarles en todo lo que podamos”.Saulo Cirilo Lucas Muentes habla sobre el terremoto del 16 de abril. Su esposa, Miryan Inés Lucas Mero, y las dos hijas de la pareja, estaban en una fiesta de cumpleaños cuando se produjo el terremoto de 7,8 de magnitud. Anne Ridens, de la iglesia del Buen Pastor [Good Shepherd] en Brentwood, Tennessee, escucha durante una visita a Santiago Apóstol en La Pila. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENSDurante la visita, Miryan Inés Lucas Mero contó la historia de cómo ella estaba con una de sus hijas en una fiesta de cumpleaños, mientras su marido estaba en otra fiesta y su otra hija estaba en casa. Justo antes del terremoto, la hija que se había quedado en casa se reunió con su madre y su hermana. Ambas hijas estaban sentadas junto a ella dos minutos antes de que azotara el terremoto. Antes que nadie percibiera el temblor, la hija mayor dijo que venía. Cuando lo dijo por segunda vez, empezaron a sentir que el suelo se movía, soltaron su pedazo de pastel y corrieron hacia fuera, donde vieron como el edificio se desplomaba.El marido de Lucas, Saulo Cirilo Lucas Muentes, guardián mayor de la iglesia, estaba frenético porque creía que una de sus hijas estaba sola en casa, y su esposa estaba aterrada de pensar que él había muerto, si no de lesiones, debido a su alta tensión arterial.Regresaron a su casa en la oscuridad frente a edificios derrumbados. El servicio de teléfonos celulares dejó de funcionar y los miembros de la familia no podían ponerse en contacto. Muchas de las personas acudieron a la iglesia porque no tenían ningún otro lugar adonde ir. Cuando amaneció y fueron capaces de ver la magnitud del daño y como la escasez de alimento y agua resultaba evidente, las cosas se pusieron aun peor. “Era el caos”, contó ella.La Rda. Mariana Loor consuela a Cecilia Lorena Quijije Gómez mientras ella cuenta su historia y Sarena Pettit interpreta para el grupo de Tennessee. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENSOtras dos mujeres, Martha Alexandra Palma Mezones y Cecilia Lorena Quijije Gómez, asistían a un retiro en Guayaquil y sus hijos estaban en casa cuando se produjo el terremoto. Sus hijos sobrevivieron, pero Palma perdió su hogar y ahora vive con su madre, y Quijije está viviendo en el patio porque su casa sufrió importantes daños.Muchas personas perdieron sus hogares y ahora viven con otros miembros de su familia hacinados bajo un mismo techo.Los compañeros de Tennessee tenían planes de visitar a sus homólogos de Ecuador Litoral antes de que se produjera el terremoto. Miembros de [la congregación de] San Felipe [St. Philip’s] en Nashville, que buscan una iglesia compañera, iban a acompañarlos. Originalmente, el grupo de 11 personas tenía el doble en número, de los cuales algunos miembros iban a montar una clínica. Pero el obispo les pidió que el grupo se concentrara en un ministerio de presencia, lo cual lo llevó a nuevas percepciones.“Durante mucho tiempo hemos notado que las mujeres y los niños asistían en una desproporcionada mayoría a los oficios de la iglesia y que las mujeres ocupaban la mayoría [si no la totalidad] de los puestos de liderazgo en muchas iglesias en [la diócesis de Ecuador] Litoral”, dijo Kurz, luego de la visita.Él y otros del grupo no estaban al tanto de los elevados índices de violencia doméstica en Ecuador, violencia que se ha intensificado después del terremoto.El Dr. Marc Mickiewicz, de la iglesia del Buen Pastor en Brentwood, Tennessee, y la Rda. Betty Juárez Villamar participan de una discusión en un pequeño grupo durante el taller sobre respuesta al desastre el 11 de junio. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS“Para las familias donde los hombres perdieron sus empleos debido as los daños sufridos en las fábricas o a las empresas que se destruyeron, las condiciones para el abuso y el hambre se han exacerbado”, afirmó. “Esta es la primera vez que he oído a una persona preparada [Cantos] dentro de la Iglesia en      [la Diócesis] Litoral abordar estos problemas y me quedé estupefacto al darme cuenta de su extensión”.El año pasado, cuando Cantos, que desempeña un trabajo secular de lunes a viernes en Guayaquil, vivía en Manta, dirigía un grupo semanal para las madres de los niños. Las reuniones le brindaban a las mujeres un espacio para compartir sus historias y le dieron a él la oportunidad de instruirlas acerca de sus derechos legales. No existe un sistema de albergues, resaltó, y muchas mujeres no tienen más opción que regresar con sus parejas abusadoras.“ El 90 por ciento de estas mujeres [de las 20 que participaron] eran víctimas de abusos y no tenían modo alguno de lidiar con eso”, dijo Cantos durante la reunión, explicando que carecían de la educación o de la comprensión para saber adonde acudir a denunciar el abuso. Dos de las mujeres tomaron medidas, explicó él. Y añadió que el número de las que buscan ayuda es escaso debido a los prejuicios profundamente arraigados de una cultura machista que lleva a presionar, aun a sus propias madres, a permanecer junto a un hombre abusador.Y con el terremoto, esa presión se ha incrementado. Algo en que los compañeros de Tennessee podrían estar dispuestos a ayudar.“Si bien las condiciones para otras congregaciones pueden ser distintas a ésta, me doy cuenta ahora de que este es un factor que deberíamos de considerar como parte de nuestra relación al trabajar con las iglesias en Ecuador”, dijo Kurz, añadiendo que puede ser un área en la cual los compañeros puedan asistir proporcionándoles adiestramiento y materiales al clero y los líderes laicos locales.– Lynette Wilson es reportera y redactora de Episcopal News Service.

NJ Villa is a private residence owned by a couple, Nun and Jea. The name of this house derived from objectives that this villa should serve their lifestyles, and also represent their characters.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooLand area of the house is 100 square wah (400 sq.m.) which is located in Bangkok, capital city of Thailand.  The site is surrounded by other single detached house which has only the front side facing south, public street. Architectural design challenges to follow the context harmoniously.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooSince there is not much green space area in Bangkok, dwelling with nature is the most concern of creating space and form of the house. Instead of having front garden area, pushing the lawn inside and creating semi-U shape house which subtended the lawn in order to produce more privacy to the garden. It can be used for all activities, in terms of five senses, especially to see, to hear and to feel. To see the grass and trees, to hear the waterfall sound, and to feel the nature from inside. The backyard lawn is connected to fish pond which is located at the center surrounded by the house. Both the garden and the pond can be seen apparently by every space and corridor of this villa including upstairs level.Save this picture!SectionAccessibility to main entrance of the house has two, which are “pedestrian corridor” that is connected to public street covered by cantilevered concrete roof slab, and “car access” that three cars garage is connected with the same front entrance foyer. The backyard can also be seen from this entrance foyer since the straight line corridor insertion creates a see through sequence to inside when opening wooden solid door. Besides, taking off shoes and umbrella hanging before going inside the house is a must activity from eastern culture, thus, long bench with aperture underneath for storing shoes and wooden elements for hanging umbrella were merged into this entrance foyer.Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooThe house is facing south which is the hottest direction for all day, functions inside was allocated that, circulation, staircase, and service area were placed at the south part, while, living, dining and master bedroom were placed at north east part, the coolest area of the house. Moreover, in order to avoid heat radiation from direct sunlight, adjustable wooden louvers were created at every facing part, especially front façade, yet allows for natural ventilation while closing. Furthermore, two layered roofing, concrete flat slab and asphalt shingle butterfly roof, not only prevent leaking from hard rain in Thailand, but it also helps protect from heat, since there is a gap between the two layers of roof which act as an insulation.Save this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!Second Floor PlanInside the villa, double ceiling height of living area creates an airy space and also being exposed to 2nd floor passageway.

Jobs & a dying horse

first_imgDoes it bother the spin doctors for either the Obama or the Romney campaigns that their job is to invent reasons why, if the voters put their man in the saddle, it will invigorate a dying horse?Everyone realizes that the big issue in this election campaign is jobs. The employment figures continue to be bleak. In fact, the budget cuts enacted by both Democrats and Republicans at all levels of government are swelling the jobless rolls with hundreds of thousands who used to have supposedly stable jobs. So it isn’t just manufacturing that’s in the tank. Service jobs, which were once seen as the wave of the future as plants shut down, are disappearing like fog before a hot wind.Both the Democrats and the Republicans are unabashedly capitalist parties. Despite the socialist baiting of Obama by the right wing, no other economic system but capitalism is even conceivable to either party.The Democrats claim to be for a “kinder” capitalism, one where the government keeps a tighter rein on the huge corporations. They pay lip service to more progressive issues. But big business puts hundreds of millions of dollars into the election coffers of both parties to ensure its own interests, no matter who wins.The problem is that the capitalist system has gone into crisis and is throwing millions of workers on the scrap heap. Democrats as well as Republicans offer no real answers. Cut taxes on the rich, say Republicans, as though they haven’t been doing that for decades. Cut taxes on companies that hire more workers, say Democrats, as if that too hasn’t been tried and failed.The truth is that a crisis like the one shaking the whole capitalist world cannot be solved within the framework of this system — not without the wholesale destruction of much of the planet’s productive capacity and the deaths of tens of millions of people. That’s how the capitalist system got out of the Great Depression — with World War II. It’s not a sane option.History has shown that for the workers to seize the means of production from the small class of capitalists — the 1% who lay claim to what the 99% have created — is the only way to transition to a rational economic system whose purpose is to satisfy human needs, not corporate greed. It’s the only way to have full employment and an equitable distribution of the wealth. We need to fight for a workers’ revolution here.But, in the meantime, a bold and massive offensive by workers can win concessions, even from capitalist parties. Workers need a government jobs program. The money is there, but both parties need to stop giving it to the banks and use it instead for the workers. Rather than getting caught up in the capitalist election, labor needs to demand good-paying jobs or income for all who need them — Now!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Local reporter hacked to death after covering drug ring

first_imgNews BangladeshAsia – Pacific to go further Reporters Without Borders condemns journalist Jamal Uddin’s murder in Sharsha, a subdistrict of the southwestern district of Jessore, on 15 June. A reporter for the Jessore-based Bengali-language newspaper Gramer Kagoj, he was stabbed and hacked to death by a group of men in a market.“It seems highly likely that Uddin’s murder was linked to his coverage of local drug rings,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities should investigate this probability with the aim of identifying those responsible and bringing them to justice without delay. We wonder why the police were not already protecting him as he had told them he had received death threats.“This is the latest in a series of particularly brutal attacks on journalists in Bangladesh. Samakal journalist A.B.M. Fazlur Rahman and several BDnews24.com reporters were the victims of violence last month but instead of responding to the attacks, the authorities contribute to the threats against journalists by attacking them, arresting them and prosecuting them. We urge the international community to press the Bangladeshi government to end the growing harassment and to comply with their obligation to protect freedom of information.”Aged about 32, Uddin was abducted from his home at around 11 p.m. on 15 June by individuals who took him to Kashipur Bazar, mutilated him with knives and machetes and then abandoned him there. Residents rushed him to Jessore Medical College Hospital, where he died of injuries to the legs, hands and eyes.His murder was probably prompted by his coverage of a local drug trafficking ring, which had already threatened to kill him. The Daily Star newspaper reported that police found a bloodstained machete and towel at the home of local drug baron Tota Miah and arrested his wife, Lata Begum. Miah managed to escape arrest.The local media community demonstrated in Sharsha on 16 June to demand the arrest of those responsible for Uddin’s murder.In an unrelated development, a tribunal investigating crimes committed during Bangladesh’s 1971 independence war yesterday issued a warrant for the arrest of Mir Quasem Ali, the head of the Diganta Media Corporation. Two of the group’s media, the newspaper Naya Diganta and Diganta TV, have been criticizing the tribunal.Violence against the media has been on the rise since the start of the year in Bangladesh, which is ranked 129th out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
