The editor of Third Sector magazine suggests in the current issue’s editorial that the poor Gift Aid conversion rates achieved by many charities can only harm the charity sector’s campaign to persuade the government to change the rules on irrecoverable VAT for charities.Stephen Cook, editor of Third Sector magazine, argues that “the chink in the collective armour of charities as they ride forth in the great VAT campaign is described by two little words: Gift Aid.” He suggests that the poor conversion rate offers an easy riposte for government to requests to reform VAT rules. Despite high conversion rates of 80-90% achieved online, the sector average for conversion of donations to Gift Aid is still around 30%.He argues that whenever the VAT reform campaign delivers its message to Whitehall, the answer will always be “We gave you Gift Aid five years ago, and you don’t make the most of that. Come back when you’ve doubled the take-up”.

New cartoon book on ‘development’ to raise funds for Survival Survival’s director Stephen Corry said: “In my 33 years with Survival, I have not come across anything else that hits the bull’s eye with such simplicity, accuracy and irrepressible humour. Today the subject of tribal peoples and development is saturated with words, but if you really want to understand what’s going on, read this book.”The author and illustrator of the book, Oren Ginzburg, has spent the last ten years working in international development. A small percentage of funds raised from the book will go to the author, with the remainder going to fund Survival’s campaigns for tribal peoples’ rights.In addition there is a form at the back of the book for people to set up a standing order or make a one-off donation to Survival.Another form on the back page of the book asks the reader if they know anyone – friend or policy maker – whom they think ought to receive the book. In return for a £5 donation sent with the form, Survival will then send it to the person they suggested.The book is also available on Survival’s website in slideshow format. A biting critique of how tribal peoples are being destroyed in the name of ‘development’ is being launched by Survival. “There you go!” by Oren Ginzburg is a short but powerful cartoon book, retailing at £4.The launch of the book, There you go!, marks the start of a major new campaign to highlight how the concept of development is often used to justify the dispossession of tribal peoples. It will be sent to every UK MP and peer, as well as to schools and universities.With vivid drawings and wry humour, the book depicts two executives arriving in a remote tribal community and imposing a ‘Multi-Stakeholder Cross-Disciplinary Integrated approach’. The effects are to leave the tribal people landless, squatting on the edge of a city.

It’s a way for us to get to say, ‘Now it’s our turn to support you as our community.’”Gotcher said the free event will offer many fun activities for its guests. Kids can enjoy many festive and educational activities, including pumpkin carving, decorating and planting their own produce with the new egg carton garden.“Kids will get biodegradable egg cartons, plant lettuce seeds and take it home to grow their own lettuce,” Gotcher said. “It’s a way to introduce kids to gardening in a really fun, very successful way.”She said the layout of the festival allows adults to explore the produce and garden series and provides families the opportunity to take pictures.Wendy Vanderbeck, the store manager of Calloway’s Nursery on Hulen Street, said the event also makes a great impact on her store’s business.“It gives us exposure,” Vanderbeck said. “People will shop on the days they are here, but [the event] brings them back to see all the merchandise we have for the season. We offer specialty pumpkins you can’t find anywhere else, especially in the quantities that we bring them in.”Gotcher said she is expecting 20,000 people to attend the Fall Festival across the different Calloway’s Nursery locations.“We joke around here that everybody and their dog come to this event,” Vanderbeck said.Gotcher said the event helps to strengthen the employer-customer relationship at each location, by allowing employees to engage with the community on a different level.“The employees make relationships with the customers,” Gotcher said. “It is a way for these employees to connect with the families and have fun with them.”Gotcher said the event offers the community a chance to reconnect with Fall Festival traditions.“You read about that in your history books, the celebration of the harvest,” Gotcher said. “We get to do that here in 2015.

The authorities claim that they did not have the necessary authorisation from the prosecutor’s office to publish information about the alleged terrorists.Many journalists and human rights activists attended the opening of their trial on 21 June. The next hearing is due to take place tomorrow.King Hamad ben Issa Al-Khalifa enacted a new press law in November 2002 guaranteeing the right to “express one’s opinion and to disseminate it orally or in writing.” However, offences “against the Islamic faith, the unity of the people and the person of the king,” and “inciting division or sectarianism” are punishable by six months to five years in prison.After objections from the Bahraini Centre for Human Rights and an independent union of Bahraini journalists that is in the process of formation, the authorities announced that the new press law would be amended in consultation with journalists.Al-Wasat was found in September 2002, becoming Bahrain’s third Arabic-language daily. The other dailies are subject to strict government control. Al-Wasat’s editor lived in self-imposed exile in London for many years and was the spokesman of the opposition Bahrain Freedom Movement.

Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes ChinaAsia – Pacific News RSF_en Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders welcomed the news that charges have been dropped against young Internet-user Liu Di. The Information Centre for Human Rights and Democracy reported that the Beijing prosecutor had told the 23-year-old student that her offence was “slight”. The Public Security Department had been unable to prove her guilt. Liu Di was released on bail on 28 November. She had been held in solitary confinement since November 2002 for posting messages on Internet discussion forums under the pseudonym “Stainless Steel Mouse”.At least three cyberdissidents, including Du Daobin, are currently in prison for having joined a solidarity campaign for Liu Di. Hundreds of Chinese Internet-users signed a petition calling for her release.________________________________________________________Young Internet user Liu Di released on bailChina has freed Internet user Liu Di on bail. Her family confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that police released her from secret detention on 28 November and that she had returned to her home in Beijing. The 23-year-old student had been detained in secret since November 2002 after she posted messages on online discussion forums under the pseudonym “stainless steel mouse”. Two other cyberdissidents Wu Yiran, 34, and Li Yibin, 29, were also freed the same day.At least two people have been imprisoned for protesting online about Liu Di’s detention without trial. During 2003, hundreds of Chinese people took the risk of signing an online petition calling for her release. Reporters Without Borders welcomed the releases. The international press freedom organisation however pointed out that more than 40 cybersdissidents remained in jail in China for posting messages on the Internet that were critical of the authorities. In November alone, eight of them were sentenced to jail terms ranging from three to ten years.”The Chinese government is making a positive gesture towards the international community,” said Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders. “However we condemn the hypocrisy of the Chinese justice system, which acts for the sake of appearances for diplomatic reasons, but continues to crack down on freedom of expression on the Internet on a daily basis.These releases come three days ahead of German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s visit to China and one week before Chinese prime minister Wen Jiabao travels to the United States. The German government recently expressed its concern at China’s curbs on freedom of expression on the Internet._______________________________________________________Prosecutors ask police for more evidence against detained psychology student Liu DiReporters Without Borders today welcomed a request by the Beijing prosecutor’s office for police to carry out additional enquiries in the case against psychology student Liu Di, who has been held since November 2002 because of messages she posted on Internet chat forums.The request confirmed the lack of evidence against Liu and highlighted the arbitrary nature of police arrests in China.Reporters Without Borders called on justice minister Zhang Fusen to intercede with public security minister Zhou Yongkang to obtain Liu’s release. “The Chinese justice system has clearly cast doubt on the investigative work of the Beijing police. This request by the prosecutor’s office makes it very hard for the Chinse authorities to justify keeping Liu Di in detention,” the organisation’s secretary-general, Robert Ménard, said.Liu’s father, Liu Qinghua, confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that the prosecutor’s office had made the request. Liu’s grandmother, Liu Heng, appealed to the Chinese authorities: “If my daughter is guilty, then bring her to trial. Otherwise she should be allowed to come home.”Charged with “threatening state security,” Liu has been held in an undisclosed located since 7 November 2002. Using the pseudonym “the rust-free mouse,” she posted messages urging fellow Internet users to “ignore the Chinese regime’s propaganda” and to “live in full freedom.” She also criticised the arrest of website creator Huang Qi on 3 June 2000 for posting articles considered by the authorities to be subversive.A “mock detention” campaign was launched on 4 October in which people were urged to shut themselves away in the dark for a day in a symbolic gesture of support for the imprisoned Liu. One of the organisers of this campaign, Du Daobin, was himself arrested on 28 October.The text of this release is available in English, Spanish and French on the Reporters Without Borders website at http://www.rsf.org/rubrique.php3?id_rubrique=272———————————-Over 13 years ago, Reporters without Borders created its “Sponsorship Programme” and called upon the international media to select and support an imprisoned journalist. One hundred and twenty news staffs around the globe are thus sponsoring colleagues by regularly petitioning authorities for their release and by publicising their situations so that their cases will not be forgotten.Currently, Liu Di is sponsored by : Elle, Association, 29 Rue Blanche, Flair/L’hebdo, RTBF (TV), Fun Radio (Belgique).

(Photo by James Carbone) ‹› Community News Workers Ask Council to ‘Keep Their Promise’ By EDDIE RIVERA | Photography by JAMES CARBONE Published on Thursday, May 21, 2020 | 4:39 am More than two dozen Pasadena workers demonstrated at City Hall Wednesday to demand that the City Council keep its commitment to raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour on July 1, as scheduled.The raise is part of a three-phase minimum wage increase voted on by the City Council in 2019. Pablo Alvarado of the National Day Laborers Organizing Network (NDLON) told Pasadena Now, “We’ve heard rumors that there is an effort by a segment of local businesses , and it appears that there might be some elected officials leaning in their direction—who are asking to stop the minimum wage from rising.”Minimum wage workers, who currently make between $13.25 to $14.25, are concerned that the City Council’s Economic Development and Technology (EDTech) subcommittee will give in to pressure by Pasadena businesses especially restaurateurs to postpone the next minimum wage increase. “Everybody is suffering during this pandemic and no one has suffered more than the essential minimum wage worker,” said Florence Annang, co-chair of Pasadenans Organizing for Progress (POP). “I am counting on the minimum wage to increase to $15.00 on July 1st. That is what the politicians told us. In times of pandemic and economic depression, we need more money in our pockets, not less. It is unfair and immoral that workers have to bear the burden all the time. said Marta Salazar, a Pasadena Resident and low wage restaurant worker. The Council EDTech Committee, already facing a full agenda on Thursday, has not scheduled a minimum wage discussion item for discussion, however. Responded Alvarado, “Look, there are a lot of rumors. We want to hear from the politicians, because they promised that on July 1, that the minimum wage will increase to July 15, and we want to believe in the political process, and we want them to keep their word.” Added Alvarado, “We want them to send a very clear message, with no ambiguity. Do they support (postponing minimum wage) or do they support workers?” EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Subscribe Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Pablo Alvarado the Co-Director of (NDLON) National Day Laborer Organizing Network, takes part in a rally to protect the July 1 minimum wage increase in front of the Pasadena City Hall on Wednesday, May 20, 2020.
