Gambia proposes 6 pct budget cut for 2017 in bid to contain debt   

          Gambia’s democracy survives political turbulence   
English

As the results of The Gambia’s presidential election trickled in last December, incumbent President Yahya Jammeh realised his power was slipping away. Indeed, final results showed that a newcomer, 51-year-old businessman Adama Barrow, had garnered 45.5% of total votes, while Mr. Jammeh received 36.6%. 


          ICC: Beyond the threats of withdrawal   
English

Sometime last year, three African countries—Burundi, the Gambia and South Africa—signalled their intention to leave the International Criminal Court (ICC). There was fear that more countries would follow.

After years of criticisms, it appeared as if aggrieved African countries would be making good on their repeated threats to leave the court.

Executive Summary

NATO and its partners, as a part of discussions related to the Alliance’s efforts to promote peace and security in its broader neighbourhood, have increasingly focused on NATOs’ “Southern Flank.” In the following report, the authors argue that this primarily military term is likely to be off-putting to many current or would-be NATO partners, such as foreign ministries, international organisations, and civilian stakeholders, hindering the goals of “projecting stability” and risking a near-exclusive focus on threats and risks. Furthermore, this report demonstrates how the term “Southern Flank” does not fully capture NATO’s challenges. For example, issues like trafficking and migration originate in far-flung areas including West Africa, Latin America, and Central Asia, which may not be part of the Southern Flank as current conceived by NATO. In suggesting the use of a less heavily value-laden and military-centric term like the “Greater South”, the authors point out that challenges emanating from the Greater South also present opportunities to Alliance states that may bolster NATO’s strategic objectives.

The following observations and findings are based on a review of the pertinent literature from academics, research institutions, governments, and various international organisations (IOs) and international nongovernmental organisations (INGOs). They also emerge in part from the authors’ combined twenty years of research experience working on and researching issues ranging from civil-military interaction to post-crisis stabilisation and humanitarian action in contexts as diverse as Afghanistan, Bosnia - Herzegovina, Lebanon, Somalia Syria and Yemen for governments, UN agencies, the World Bank, INGOs, NATO’s former Civil-Military Fusion Centre and others.

Challenges and Opportunities in NATO’s Greater South

Some of the most immediately pressing challenges emanating from the Greater South include migration and trafficking in drugs, guns, persons as well as conflict and violent extremism. These inter-related issues thrive amidst corruption and low state capacity, prevent economic growth, and facilitate instability and extremism. This report explores these challenges and demonstrates (i) their intersecting nature; (ii) how typical approaches to addressing these issues, including increased border control and military responses, can displace the challenge and plant the seeds of future instability elsewhere; and (iii) that the various challenges facing NATO may be reconceptualised as opportunities rather than purely as threats.

With regard to migration, in 2015, 1.2 million people applied for asylum in Europe, 66.2% of whom were male according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). This may pose social stability challenges not only in assimilation and cultural differences relating to gender relations but also in the fact that most young, male migrants, many of whom are single, will be jobless for a year or two following arrival. However, with approximately 84% of incoming migrants under 34 years old, the host economy may ultimately benefit economically from migration. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), for instance, estimates annual output to increase by 0.1% in the EU and 0.3% in Germany by the end of 2017.

           Migranti morti in barca,assolti scafisti    
CAGLIARI - Non erano loro gli scafisti che il 2 settembre 2016 portarono in Italia un gruppo di migranti. Ad uno dei quattro cittadini africani, a processo davanti al Gup del Tribunale di Cagliari Cristina Ornano, era contestato anche l'omicidio preterintenzionale, perché durante il viaggio tre profughi erano morti di stenti. Al termine di una breve camera di consiglio il giudice ha così assolto tutti gli imputati, accertando che anche loro erano dei viaggiatori: i veri scafisti li avevano costretti a prendere il timone dell'imbarcazione, che a stento stava a galla, per evitare il naufragio. Difesi dagli avvocati Desolina Farris, Salvatore Casula e Maurizio Collu, i quattro uomini - due del Senegal e due del Gambia - erano stati arrestati quando una motovedetta italiana aveva intercettato il gommone.

STAA wa filamu Bongo, Rammy Gallis amenasa kifaa kipya kutoka nchini Gambia ambaye naye ni msanii wa filamu, Princess Shyngle na kusema kuwa mwanadada huyo ndiye anayemkonga nyoyo kwa sasa japo hapendi kumuuzisha sura.

Akipiga stori na Star Mix baada ya meseji za mapenzi akichati na mwanadada huyo kunaswa na paparazi wetu, msanii huyo alifunguka kuwa, yupo kwenye uhusiano na mlimbwende huyo kwa muda sasa na kwamba miongoni mwa vitu vilivyomvutia kwake ni pamoja na figa matata aliyonayo.

“Nilikutana na Princess nilipoenda kufanya filamu Nigeria, kwa kuwa yeye ni Mgambia lakini makazi yake makubwa ni Nigeria, nampenda sana naamini yeye ndiye tulizo la moyo wangu, mapenzi ya Kibongo yanitue kwa sasa,” alisema.

          Looking For A Cruise With A Difference?   
Cruise ship companies are continuing to add ships to their fleets and they are also becoming far more imaginative with the cruise itineraries that they are providing. The Caribbean and Mediterranean are still the most popular cruising destinations, but there is now a large range of exiting cruises that are available around the World.




This article attempts to give you some inspiration on where you should think about taking your next cruise holiday.




South America can offer a huge range of diverse cruises ranging from a trip up the Amazon to the throbbing cities of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires as well as offering natural wonders like the Galapagos Islands, Chilean Fjords and the Andes mountains.




Many of these cruises start from US ports and otherssail from the major South American cities. The majority of cruises to the Antarctica start from Ushuaia in southern Argentina. Several cruise companies including Voyages of Discovery and Hurtigruten offer expedition-style Antarctica cruises.




Dubai, as well as being a luxury holiday destination is starting to become an established cruise port. Costa Cruises is sailing seven cruise itineraries in 2009 calling at Abu Dhabi, Oman and Bahrain.




Dubai and other gulf ports often feature on world or repositioning cruises which means you can pick up a cruise bargain by choosing one of these cruises.




North Africa is well served by many cruise ships that also include the Mediterranean but what about the rest of Africa? Some world cruises sail down the west coast of Africa to Cape Town, as an alternative to cruising through the Suez Canal in Egypt.




Cruising the west coast means that you can visit countries such as Senegal, Gambia and Namibia as well as the Cape Verde Islands and St Helena. In southern and eastern Africa some cruise lines offer departures from Cape Town and also the Kenyan holiday resort of Mombasa.




Silversea Cruises offers several trips from these ports which call at destinations such as Zanzibar, Madagascar and Assumption Island. Hebridean International Cruises and Voyages of Discovery are also featuring cruises around this region.




Cruises to Alaska are still as popular as ever. These cruisese start from Seattle or Vancouver and make their way up the Inside Passage taking in some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. NCL, Princess and Royal Caribbean are just some of the cruise lines offering Alaskan cruises, which can also be combined with a land tour.




The Baltic is the second most popular cruise region in the European summer season. A Baltic cruise would visit the stunning cities of St Peterburg, Stockholm and Tallinn, whilst of course Norway offers the incredible Fjords, the midnight sun and The Northern Lights. Hurtigruten is famed for its coastal voyages around Norway.




The Far East and in particular China has seen a big growth in cruise customers. Many cruises start from Hong Kong and cruise north to China and Japan. Other cruises head south where you will cruise to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.




Australia and New Zealand feature on most world cruises by cruise companies such as P&O, Holland America, Princess and Royal Caribbean.




So, what are you waiting for? Cruising has never been more popular and with the ever increasing choice of both exotic and exploration cruises available there has never been a better time to book a cruise.

Nos sorprende ver esta actividad tan artesanal, parece que sea ancestral, cuando nuestros abuelos, o padres, a mediados del siglo XX, lo hacían. Nos sorprende cuando a una mujer se la mira diferente en otros países, cuando aquí, todavía hay quien lo hace. A pesar de la globalización, nuestras mentes siguen sin estar lo suficientemente abiertas, a no ser que haya un interés detrás... pero entonces, no vale. Elena, como siempre, bravo. Interesantísimo este vídeo. Saludos
          A COMPLETE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF MY BOOKS   

My first 25 books - click picture to enlarge (© Dr Karl Shuker)

Today is the fourth anniversary of my mother Mary Shuker's passing. I owe my lifelong love of reading, writing, and nature to Mom - her love for all wildlife nurtured my own from my earliest days, and her impeccable command of the English language tutored and guided my own throughout my life. Consequently, to commemorate and celebrate her kindly, positive, and truly immeasurable influence upon my entire existence and career, the present ShukerNature blog article is dedicated to my mother, and consists of a frequently-requested, currently-complete listing of all of the books that I have written, have acted as consultant for, have contributed to, or to which I have written a foreword. It will be updated whenever new books need to be added here.

Without you, Mom, none of my writings would have existed - God bless you, and thank you for the inestimable love, joy, happiness, and blessings that you gave to me and bestowed upon me by being in my life as my mother.

          Saving America from smart schoolgirls: Afghan teenagers denied visa for robotics competition   

An all-girl team from the city of Herat in Afghanistan has been invited to the United States to participate in the prestigious FIRST Robotic Competition. Despite great difficulty in obtaining both supplies and instruction, the girls have worked hard to design, construct, and program a robot for the competition. With the help of the first female tech CEO in the nation, they’re polished their skills and prepared. And they’ve literally risked their lives to be a part of the contest.

To interview for their visas, the girls risked a 500 mile trek cross-country to the American embassy in Kabul – the site of several recent suicide attacks and one deadly truck bomb in early June that killed at least 90 people.

Their application for a visa? Denied. The girls even made a second journey to revisit the embassy. Denied again. There is still a chance that their robot is coming to America.

Back home in Herat, Team Afghanistan is racing against the clock, putting the final touches on their ball-sorting robot that will travel to the U.S. to compete against 163 other machines from around the globe. The students are screwing together joints, programming the machine's sensors, and still trying to find one chain.

Of all the teams around the world, the Afghan team is one of only two that was denied visas to travel (the other was the Gambia, which is currently occupied by a coalition of African states after a constitutional crisis in January). 


          FOFOCAS DE CELEBRIDADES- GOSSIPS    

Kendrick Lamar libera clipe impactante para a faixa ‘ELEMENT’.

 
 
 
Kendrick Lamar liberou o videoclipe para a faixa ELEMENT. A música faz parte do último álbum do rapper, DAMN, que tem sido muito aclamado pela crítica por seu teor ativista.
 
O vídeo não é diferente. Os planos extremamente impactantes e belos simbolizam a luta travada pelo povo negro nos Estados Unidos – e no mundo todo – contra o racismo institucionalizado. O que vemos é uma clara denúncia contra o encarceramento negro e o abuso policial contra a negritude americana.
 
 

 
 
O vídeo de ELEMENT é assinado por Jonas Lindstroem e os Little Homies, projeto composto por Lamar e Dave Free. Eles foram os responsáveis pelos trabalhos anteriores do cantor, como o vídeo de HUMBLE e DNA.
 

Brandon Flowers é o macho alfa (ou não) no clipe do The Killers para ‘The Man’.

 
 
 
O retorno de The Killers já está acontecendo e estamos diante de seu mais recente single, The Man que marca a volta do grupo e agora reafirma a canção com direito à seu próprio clipe.
 
O vídeo lançado hoje (28), foi anunciado pela banda da seguinte forma: “Alegrem-se, comunidade de amantes da música. Acabamos de parir um acompanhamento visual para The Man. Nós estamos tomando cuidado em apresentar as coisas em passos, porque liberar muitas coisas boas de uma só vez nos tornaria em esquisitões.” – afirma o grupo em suas redes sociais.
 

 


David Guetta leva ‘Versace On The Floor’, de Bruno Mars, para a pista de dança em remix assinado.

 
 
 
A canção Versace On The Floor é uma das recentes canções do atual disco de Bruno Mars, o 24k Magic. A canção que originalmente traz uma base mais calma e romântica ganha novos caminhos na mão de David Guetta.
 
Bruno convidou o DJ para que remixasse a música e a recriasse à sua maneira. Nessa semana, a tal versão assinada de Guetta foi lançada como remix oficial por Mars.
 
 
 

Lollapalooza Brasil 2018: as bandas que o público quer ver (e qual a chance delas virem).

 
 
 
A edição de 2017 mal acabou e já estamos com aquele sentimento de ‘quero mais’. A sexta edição do festival no Brasil aconteceu no Autódromo de Interlagos em São Paulo, nos dias 24 e 25 de março. O assunto agora é o Lollapalooza Brasil 2018.

Funk é cultura, faz sucesso, gera renda e vai ser defendido, sim.



 
 
Um preconceituoso projeto de lei que pretende criminalizar o funk ultrapassou as 20 mil assinaturas necessárias para chegar ao Senado.
 
O autor do projeto, Marcelo Alonso, defende que o ritmo é um crime de saúde pública à criança, ao adolescente e à família e propaga atitudes violentas. Ele ainda vai mais longe e categoriza o ritmo como um lixo.
 
 
 
 
Nem todo mundo concorda com o projeto. Ainda bem. O senador carioca  Romário Faria (PSB-RJ) se sentiu atingido pela projeto e vai convidar vários nomes relevantes do funk nacional para defender o movimento no Senado. Entre os convidados estão Anitta, Valesca Popozuda, Bochecha e Tati Quebra Barraco. Romário diz em entrevista:
 
“Eu, como carioca nato e eterno funkeiro, faço questão de defender essa bandeira.[…] O funk tira as pessoas do desemprego e movimenta a economia.

Italia
I cani a caccia dello straniero
La Repubblica
(Maurizio Crosetti) Un gioco dell' oca, ma le pedine sono esseri umani. La prima casella è sotto il ponte della ferrovia, sul greto del torrente Roja dove domenica notte sono partiti in 400 e sembrava un esodo biblico, poveri corpi trascinati tra sassi e immondizie nell' oscurità calante, in mano bastoni e borse di plastica. Muti, spaventati, a mollo fino alle ginocchia e poi sulla montagna subito dopo il guado, cercando i sentieri che portano in Francia. All' orizzonte la massa illusoria e lugubre del Monte Grammondo, verso il passo Treittore dove un cippo indica che qui finisce l' Italia ma non comincia niente.
La prima casella sono i loculi di cemento scavati dentro i piloni del ponte, un metro e mezzo per un metro, buchi immondi dove i migranti sudanesi, etiopi, libici e gambiani trascorrono le notti come rifiuti in fondo alla discarica. E infatti si fatica a distinguere la presenza umana di corpi avvoltolati nelle coperte, dentro un sonno di pietra, dal ciarpame rovesciato sulle sponde del torrente. Ma quando cala il buio si parte e si sale, seguendo le tracce dei giovani attivisti tedeschi oppure dei passeur che per cento euro a cranio conducono sugli antichi sentieri della sopravvivenza: così li chiamavano in tempo di guerra quando sulla Mortola fuggivano gli ebrei nella boscaglia, pure loro in cerca di futuro. 
Sono le stesse piste dei miseri contrabbandieri di olio e farina in cambio di caffè e cioccolata, quando ancora non si barattava una vita con una vita, o con nulla. Sono saliti in quattrocento e un centinaio ancora mancano all' appello, sperduti tra carpini e lecci, dentro i cespugli fioriti. Hanno mangiato piccoli fichi ancora acerbi salendo verso Olivetta San Michele, hanno raggiunto il rifugio Gambino in frazione Gerri tra un volo di farfalle bianche e il sangue delle vesciche. Molti avanzano in ciabatte, altri scalzi, seguendo il rumore del torrente Bevera per orientarsi nelle tenebre, e il volo dei gabbiani. 
Alcuni si sono divisi tra le frazioni Calvo e Torri: i più agili o fortunati ce l' hanno fatta, conquistando finalmente la Francia con l' ultimo salto nel buio, ma i più sono stati catturati dalla Gendarmerie e rimandati indietro. Perché la seconda casella è il respingimento, anche la parola è orribile, non solo il fatto. Li identificano e li respingono appunto uno a uno, una procedura molto lunga e per arrivarci i migranti sono stati presi con i cani Malinois e con i droni, dove l' elicottero non riusciva ad arrivare. «Il lavoro sporco, i nostri poliziotti lo fanno fare ai francesi», dice un' attivista italiana col foglio di via, fuorilegge sul monte per aiutare dei poveracci. Tutti illegali, lei e loro. «La Polizia ha fatto crescere la tensione per poter reprimere meglio, è un vecchio trucco tattico». Poi, la terza casella è l' intruppamento verso Sospel o Castellar, frazioni francesi sopra Ventimiglia da dove il mare è una meraviglia finta, di smalto. 
I gendarmi non usano troppe cortesie. «Mi hanno picchiato quando ho detto che ho solo 17 anni, eppure è vero, mi hanno battuto e rimandato indietro», racconta Ahammed, etiope col sogno di un Paese che neppure lo conosce e già lo odia. La quarta casella del gioco dell' oca umano è il fax dai gendarmi francesi ai colleghi italiani, ci sono meno di 200 metri tra le loro caserme alla frontiera alta di Ponte San Luigi, gialle e basse entrambe, dove gli uomini sono stivati dentro ai container come merce. Dalla caserma italiana partono le camionette per riprendersi i migranti e riportarli sotto, sul greto del torrente. Ma i più vengono messi sui pullman e spediti al Cie di Taranto, i sedili sono coperti da teli di plastica perché si sa che i neri sono sporchi e un vecchio torpedone scassato senza aria condizionata potrebbe subirne grave danno. La quinta casella è dunque il viaggio infinito, torrido e sconsolante, con un' idea già ben chiara in testa: arrivare in Puglia e scappare di nuovo. Molti dei neri portati a Taranto martedì ieri pomeriggio erano già a Milano e aspettavano il treno per Ventimiglia dove il gioco dell' oca ricomincerà. «Ora sono stremato, nel bosco non ho mangiato niente e non ho dormito, ma tra qualche giorno ritento» dice Mido, sudanese. «Ho 17 anni», lo ripete come tanti, sperando che il diritto internazionale che gli hanno a malapena spiegato ne tuteli la minore età, altra pia illusione come dimostrano le percosse sulla schiena di Ahammed. Quelli che tornano al via, si rifocillano alla mensa della Caritas di via San Secondo. 
Ieri mattina erano 250. «Ma non possiamo sfamarne neppure uno di più, la struttura è al collasso», racconta Christian Papini, il coordinatore di queste due file di uomini affamati e malvestiti. «Chiediamo abiti da uomo di taglia piccola perché i ragazzi, vedete, sono mingherlini». Il cibo per ora non manca. Menù del giorno, pasta ai funghi e insalata. La roba da mangiare arriva anche dalla Francia, come questa latta d' olio che la signora Thérèse Maffeis scarica adesso dall' auto. «Vengo da Nizza e mi vergogno che noi francesi non accogliamo nessuno, altro che europeismo di Macron, lui non vuole chi non gli rende nulla». Thérèse veste solo di verde: «Per una speranza, e per dare un po' di colore e gioia a questi poveretti che già mi conoscono e mi chiamano, appunto, la verde». Davanti alla chiesa delle Gianchette che ospita donne e bambini, i migranti maschi stanno distesi a terra e cercano la forza di ripartire. Sanno che cento di loro vagano ancora sulla montagna, nel frattempo qualcuno sarà passato dall' altra parte, scappando ai cani e ingoiando bacche. Perché la montagna ha una strada per tutti, almeno finché un gendarme non ti cattura dopo che hai pagato i trafficanti di uomini, non solo quelli delle carrette del mare, anche i contrabbandieri di carne che conoscono ogni angolo del monte, luridi e scaltri perché il gioco dell' oca è soprattutto un mercato e loro comprano, loro vendono. E stanotte qualcuno riproverà.

          Saving America from smart schoolgirls: Afghan teenagers denied visa for robotics competition   

An all-girl team from the city of Herat in Afghanistan has been invited to the United States to participate in the prestigious FIRST Robotic Competition. Despite great difficulty in obtaining both supplies and instruction, the girls have worked hard to design, construct, and program a robot for the competition. With the help of the first female tech CEO in the nation, they’re polished their skills and prepared. And they’ve literally risked their lives to be a part of the contest.

To interview for their visas, the girls risked a 500 mile trek cross-country to the American embassy in Kabul – the site of several recent suicide attacks and one deadly truck bomb in early June that killed at least 90 people.

Their application for a visa? Denied. The girls even made a second journey to revisit the embassy. Denied again. There is still a chance that their robot is coming to America.

Back home in Herat, Team Afghanistan is racing against the clock, putting the final touches on their ball-sorting robot that will travel to the U.S. to compete against 163 other machines from around the globe. The students are screwing together joints, programming the machine's sensors, and still trying to find one chain.

Of all the teams around the world, the Afghan team is one of only two that was denied visas to travel (the other was the Gambia, which is currently occupied by a coalition of African states after a constitutional crisis in January). 


          Re: West Africa   
Gambia

I just came from Gambia. I must say I have never had such respect for gay people until I saw a couple of gay Gambians at Romano in Bakau. These guys are openly gay and effeminate and couldn't care who knows inspite of the local anti gay laws and the stupid president's gay death threats. Romano plays host to a live band every Sunday night which goes on til 3.30 am Monday morning. Although the weekly event is not necessarily a gay event/venue, this event does attract some gay Gambians. These guys are good "mbalax" dancers. It is customary to give them a few Dalasis (the local currency) if you appreciate their artistry. You don't have to though. You can simply watch then walk up to them to congratulate them thereby striking a conversation. Ensure any express of interest is done discreetly when they are alone or away from their female friends. Interestingly, some of these guys were arrested few years ago but it still has not stopped them expressing themselves. Some of them are well known homosexuals.
          How safe are gay tourists in the Gambia?   
I am planning on visiting the Gambia next year.
But: how safe are you as a single white gay male travelling alone?

I am not extremely feminine, but you can see I am gay.
I want to visit the Gambia for the sun and the nice beaches, having dinner in the evening and a few drinks in a bar.
Will be staying at a middle class hotel (2 or 3 stars) in the coastal region.
Will be taking occasional trips but not looking for sex since I have been warned how dangerous that is.

Just for taking a trip like I described above and refusing offers of sex (just because I do not go on vacaction for sex) how dangerous can that be for me?
          Re: Visiting the Gambia   
Hello !
Yes, I'll be interested in meeting nice/honest local boys.
If you know anyone, I'll be happy to receive your help and experience.
many thanks
          Re: GAMBIA IN THE LIFE   
Whished i could tell something different.
Have been in The Gambia more then 10 times, and still come there.
All the times i have been there, i never met a real gay. Some boys do act as if they are gay,
but they do so to get something from you, money, a ticket to Europe, education or what else.
As a moslim country with a president that has said that all gays should be killed, you should not expect
sympathy overthere. Ofcourse, like everywhere in the world, there are people who use there brains
and untherstand that gays are also human, and need respect!
But don't tell that The Gambia is a paradise for gays
Absolutly not!!!!!!!!!
          Re: Some recent information from The Gambia   
Is that you on the picture?
Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww
I think i love you!!!!!!!
          Re: Gambians against Government`s anti-gay stance   
In that case keep your gay sex tourism visits to African countries where gayness is either legal or tolerated... South Africa, Burkina Faso and Togo are the only countries I know where gayness is either legal or tolerated... Please let us know of others
          Re: gambia   
Agree with you regarding Gambia,you should also include other Islamic countries in Africa such as Senegal,Mali,Mauritania,Sudan. These are places to be avoided at all costs,they are extremely intolerant of gays,and risk your life,just for a few minutes of fun. No amount of money or any other incentive would ever lure me to visit such barbaric countries.

From www gvnet.com I transfer the fllowing passage.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above. Primary source countries are Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Benin. Trafficking of Gambian boys to Senegal for forced begging and Senegalese boys to The Gambia for the same purpose is particularly prevalent. Gambian women and girls are trafficked to Senegal for domestic servitude, and possibly for sexual exploitation. Gambian women and children may be trafficked to Europe through trafficking schemes disguised as migrant smuggling. Reports in the last two years of Gambian, Senegalese, and nationals of other neighboring countries being transported from The Gambia to Spain by boat appear to be predominantly cases of smuggling rather than trafficking. - U.S. State Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2008 [

New Approaches to Ethno-Linguistic Maps

I’m excited to give a guest blog post here at humans who read grammars on new methods in language geography.  I’m a geographer by trade, and I am currently a PhD student at the University of Maryland.  I also work for an environmental nonprofit - Conservation International - doing data science on agriculture and environmental change in East Africa.  Before ending up where I am now, I lived for some time in West Africa and the Philippines.  During my time in both of those linguistically-rich areas, I became quite interested in language geographies and linguistics more generally.  Spurned on by curiosity and my disappointment in available resources, I’ve done some side projects mapping languages and language groups, which I’ll talk about here.

Problems with Current Language Maps

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 11.23.48 PM.png
A map of tonal languages from WALS.  Fascinating at a global scale, but unsatisfying if you zoom in to smaller regions.
One major issue with most modern maps of languages is that they often consist of just a single point for each language - this is the approach that WALS and glottolog take.  This works pretty well for global-scale analyses, but simple points are quite uninformative for region scale studies of languages.  Points also have a hard time spatially describing languages that have disjoint distributions, like English, or languages that overlap spatially. See here for a more in-depth discussion of these issues from Humans Who Read Grammars

One reason that most language geographers go for the one-point-per-language approach is that using a simple point is simple, while mapping languages across regions and areas is very difficult.  An expert must decide where exactly one language ends and another begins.  The problem with relying on experts, however, is that no expert has uniform experience across an entire region, and thus will have to rely on other accounts of which language is prevalent where.  This is how, for example, the Murdock Map of African ethno-linguistic groups was created.  As a continental scale map, it is rich and fascinating.  However, looking for closely at specific region, and the map seems to have problems - how did Murdock know exactly the shape of each little wiggle identifying the boundary between two groups?  What about areas where two different groups overlap?  Other issues can arise when trying to distinguish distinct groups when often the on-the-ground reality is that a language may exist as a dialect continuum, something that subjectively drawing polygons does not readily account for.

These maps can have real import when they form the foundation of other analyses. Researchers have examined whether ethnic diversity in developing countries, and in Africa in particular, can hamper economic development and lead to conflict. Scientists disagree, although many analyses use the Murdock map. See some of this research here, here and here. Another study, recently published in Science, looked at Internet penetration in areas where politically excluded ethnic groups live. They found that groups without political power were often marginalized in terms of internet service provision. However, their data for West Africa, which came from the Ethnic Power Relations database, was quite rough: all of southern Mali was one ethnic group labeled “blacks” while the north was labeled as “Tuaregs” or “Arabs”, while there was no data at all for Burkina Faso.  While their findings were important and they did the best that they could with available datasets, a less informed analysis from the same data could end up looking like linguistics done horribly wrong.  We need better ethno-linguistic maps simply to do good social science and address these critical questions.

New Methods and Datasets

I believe that, thanks to greater computational efficiency offered by modern computers and new datasets available from social media, it is increasingly possible to develop better maps of language distributions using geotagged text data rather than an expert’s opinion.  In this blog, I’ll cover two projects I’ve done to map languages - one using data from Twitter in the Philippines, and another using computationally-intensive algorithms to classify toponyms in West Africa.

I should note that for all its hype, big data can be pretty useless without real-world experience.  The Philippines and West Africa are two parts of the world where I have spent a good amount of time and have some on-the-ground familiarity with the languages.  Thus, I was able to use my local knowledge to inform how I conducted the analyses, as well as to evaluate their issues and shortcomings.

Case Study 1: Social Media From The Philippines

Many fascinating language maps from twitter have been created at global scales - see here, and here.  However, to explore the distribution of understudied languages that don’t show up in maps of global languages, one must use more bespoke methods.  This is especially true of austronesian languages like those found in the Philippines, which don’t have a lot of phonemic variability, and therefore aren’t easily classified using the methods that google translate uses.  These methods, which rely on slices of the sample text, often confuse austronesian languages like Tagolog and Bahasa - just look at the maps I mentioned above. Thus, I had to use a word-list method, and created word lists from corpora offered by SEAlang, and by scraping from local-language wikipedia articles.  The resulting maps show exactly where minority languages are used in comparison with English and Tagalog in the philippines, and likely underestimate the prevalence of minority languages because the corpora used (wikipedia and the bible) are quite different from the twitter data that was classified.

Languages of Tweets in the Philippines.
The resulting map shows about 125,000 tweets in English, Tagalog, Taglish (using Tagalog and English in the same tweet), and the local languages Cebuano, Ilocano, Hiligaynon, Kapampangan, Bikol, and Waray.  This map offers more nuance than traditional language maps of the Philippines.  For example, most maps would show Ilocano over the entire northern part of Luzon, but this map shows that the use of Ilocano is much more robust on the northwest coast than in the rest of the north.  This analysis also allowed me to test a hypothesis that I frequently heard locals assert when in the Philippines - that English is more common in the south, because southerners would rather use English than Tagalog, which is seen as a northern language.  I found that this was to be the case, and I was only able to confirm this because I had such a large sample size.  Without newer datasets like those offered by social media, this hypothesis would be untestable.

Another project I did used toponyms, or place names, from West Africa.  Toponyms databases like geonames.org have relatively high spatial resolution - with a name for every populated place in an area.  And while a place name is not as long as a tweet or other linguistic dataset, toponyms do encode ethno-linguistic information.  It would be easy for someone familiar with Europe to distinguish whether a toponym is associated with the French or German linguistic group - a French name would likely begin with “Les” and end with “-elle”, while a German name could begin with “Der” and end with “-berg”.  Similar differences exist between toponyms from different ethnic groups all over the world, and are quite evident to locals.  What if you could train an algorithm to detect these differences, and then had it classify every single toponym throughout a region?  That is what I tried to do in this analysis.

I used toponyms for six countries in French West Africa. I decided to focus on French West Africa for several reasons. For one, I have worked there, and have some familiarity with the ethnic groups of the region and their distributions, and it is an area I am very curious about. For another thing, this is a relatively poorly documented part of the world as far as ethno-linguistic groups go, and it is an area with significant region-scale ethnic diversity. Finally, the countries I selected were colonized by one group, meaning that all of the toponyms were transliterated the same way and could be compared even across national borders. In all, I used 35,785 toponyms.

First, I got a list of every possible set of three letters (called a 3-gram) from the toponyms.   Then, I tested for spatial autocorrelation in the locations that contained each 3-gram using a Moran’s I test, and selected only those 3-grams that had significant clustering.

To give an illustration of why this was necessary, here are two examples of the spatial distribution 3-grams. One 3-gram - “ama” - occurs roughly evenly throughout the regions in this study. The other 3-gram - “kro” - is very common in toponyms in south-east Côte d'Ivoire, and virtually nonexistent in other areas. Thus, “kro” has significant spatial autocorrelation whereas “ama” does not.

Here are all of the toponyms that contain the 3-gram “kro" 


And here are all of the toponyms that contain the 3-gram “ama" 

Thus, the the 3-gram "ama” doesn’t tell us much about which ethnic group a toponym belongs to, because that 3-gram is found evenly distributed throughout West Africa - it is just noise. The 3-gram “kro”, on the other hand, carries information about which ethnic group a toponym belongs to, because it is clearly clustered in a group in Southeast Côte d'Ivoire.

I then calculated the lexical distance between all of the toponyms based on the number shared 3-grams that had significant spatial autocorrelation.  To add a spatial component, I also linked any two toponyms that were less than 25 kilometers apart. Thus, I had a graph where every toponym was a vertex, and undirected edges connected toponyms that had spatial or lexical affinity.  Finally, I used a fast greedy modularity-optimizing algorithm to detect communities, or clusters, in this graph.

Results
The algorithm found seven distinct communities, which definitely correspond to ethnic groups and ethnic macro-groups in West Africa.


The red cluster includes Wolof, Serer, and Fulfulde place names, which makes sense, as all of these groups are Senegambian languages. This group of languages is the primary group in Senegal and Mauritania, which my classification picked up on. It also caught the large Fulfulde presence in central Guinea, throughout an area known as the Fouta-Djallon. This cluster also has a significant presence throughout the Sahel, stretching into Burkina Faso and dotted throughout the rest of West Africa, much like the migrant Fulfulde people.

The green cluster captures most of the area where Mandé languages are spoken, including most of Mali, where the Bambara are found, as well as Eastern Guinea and Northern Côte d'Ivoire, where Malinké is found. Interestingly, most of the toponyms in Western Mali fell into the Senegambian/Fulfulde cluster, and were not in the Mandé cluster, even though there are Mandé groups like the Soninké and Khassonké in Western Mali. Southern Guinea is densely green, representing the presence of Mandé groups there, like the Kuranko. Surprisingly, much of central and southern Côte d'Ivoire also fell into the green cluster, even through there are a couple of different groups there which are not in any way related to the Mandé groups that were most represented in the green cluster. This is also true of areas in Western Burkina Faso and Eastern Mali, where there are many languages unrelated to the broader Mandé group, such as Dogon, Bobo, Minianka, and Senufo/Syempire. However, I know that Dyula, a Mandé language closely related to Bambara, is spoken as a trade language in both of these areas (Côte d'Ivoire and Western Burkina Faso). It could be that Dyula has had a long enough presence in these areas to leave an imprint on the toponyms there.

The purple group pretty clearly captured two different disjoint groups that are both in the broader Mandé group - the Susu, in far Western Guinea, and the Dan, in Western Côte d'Ivoire. These groups are normally classified as being on quite separate branches of the Mandé language family, with the Susu being Northern Mandé and Dan being Eastern Mandé. However, the fact that the algorithm put them in the same group, even though they were too far apart to have edges/connections based on spatial affinity, shows that Dan and Susu toponyms have several three-grams common.

The yellow cluster seems to have caught two sub-groups within the broader green/Mandé cluster. Many of the yellow toponyms in central Mali are in what you could call the Bambara homeland, between Bamako and Segou. However, a second cluster stands out quite distinctly in southern Guinea. It’s unclear to me what group this could represent and why it would have toponymic features distinct enough from its neighbors that the algorithm put it in a different cluster. Some maps say that a group called the Konyanka lives here and speaks a language closely related to Malinké.

The turquoise cluster quite clearly captures the Mossi people and their toponyms, as well as the Gurunsi, a related group (both Mossi and Gurunsi are classified as Gur languages).

The black cluster in southern Burkina Faso captured a group that most national ethno-linguistic maps call the Lobi, although this part of West Africa is known for its significant entho-linguistic heterogeneity. Another group of villages in Eastern Burkina Faso also fell into the black cluster, although I could not find any significant ethnic group found there.

Finally, the blue cluster captured both the Baoulé/Akan languages as well as the Senufo. It captured the Senufo especially in Côte d'Ivoire and somewhat in Burkina Faso, but not much in Mali, where I know the Senufo have a significant presence. This could represent a Bambarization of previously Senufo toponyms due to the fact that the government of Mali is predominantly Bambara, or it could pre-date the Malian state, as this area was part of Samori Toure’s Wassoulou Empire, in which the Malinké language was strongly enforced. The classification of the Senufo languages has always been controversial, but this toponymic analysis suggests that they are more related to Kwa toponyms to the south rather than to Gur toponyms to the northeast.

Caveats

Some caveats with this work and its interpretation. For one, this only shows toponymic affinities. Those affinities usually correspond to ethnic distributions, but not always. There is a lot of migration in West Africa today, and place names don’t usually change as quickly as the distributions of people. Thus, toponyms can sometimes encode historic ethnic distributions, for example many toponyms in the United States come from Native American languages, and there are many toponym suffixes in England that reflect a historic Nordic presence. Thus, this and similar maps are most informative when interpreted in combination with on-the-ground information and knowledge.

Another issue with classifying toponyms in West Africa in particular is that West African toponyms are transcribed using the Latin alphabet, which definitely does not capture all of the sounds that exist in West African languages. Different extensions of the Latin alphabet, as well as an indigenous alphabet, are often used to transcribe these languages, however these idiosyncratic methods of writing languages are not used in the geonames dataset. Thus, the Fulfulde bilabial implosive (/ɓ/ in IPA) is written the same way as a pulmonic bilabial plosive - as a “b”, so this distinction is lost in our dataset, even though it adds a lot of information about what ethnic group a given toponym belongs to. However, some other sounds and sound combinations, which are very indicative of specific languages are captured using a Latin alphabet- for example prenasalized consonants (/mb/) common in Senegambian languages, labial velars (/gb/ and /kp/) common in coastal languages, or the lack of a ‘v’ in Mandé languages. Issues also arise with how different colonizers transcribe sounds differently, for example ‘ny’ and 'kwa’ in English would be 'gn’ and 'coua’ in French. However, this didn’t apply in this analysis, which only used Francophone countries, and I believe it could be dealt with if I tried to do a larger analysis.

Conclusion


This is an exciting time to be at the intersection of geography and linguistics!  New datasets and computational methods are giving researchers the ability to ask newer and better questions about who belongs to what group, and where.  I hope new developments in this research can yields new linguistic results about phylogeny, migration, and the spread of linguistic phenomena.  Outside of the field of linguistics, better language maps could have broad applications, from improving disaster response planning to helping to answer critical questions about the origins of ethnic conflict.


          Os Contornos da Transição do Poder Politico em 2017 C   

Carlos Kandanda
 
Visto por dentro, na dimensão global, o tema é bastante delicado e complexo, exigindo uma abordagem realista e objectiva. Este tema, por natureza, suscita incertezas, dúvidas, controvérsias e especulações de diferentes sectores da sociedade angolana, dilacerados por doutrinas partidárias, assentem em preconceitos totalitários, que estiveram na origem da ruptura que se verificou no seio do nacionalismo angolano. Tendo-se culminando na Guerra Civil prolongada, que tivera devastado o País durante três décadas consecutivas. Por este motivo, os desafios do ano 2017, em Angola, são imensos e transversais, envolvendo vários factores, quer de ordem interna, quer de ordem externa. Mas, na sua manifestação prática, se convergem na mesma conjuntura, com identidades e características distintas. 

Logo, as questões fundamentais deste fenómeno têm a ver com o âmbito de transição do Poder público, tais como: a modalidade e as circunstâncias em que se desenrolar a transição; o carácter e a dinâmica de transição; a dimensão deste fenómeno; o protagonismo politico; o ambiente de transformação; o espirito reinante de transição; a transparência, a lisura e a credibilidade dos mecanismos eleitorais, que conferem a legitimidade e a legalidade do processo; as perspectivas e as consequências adjacentes. Acima de tudo, como lidar com as questões complexas que surgirem no decurso de transição? Se ter em consideração a postura dos regimes africanos, enraizados no poder há muitas décadas, sem alternância político-partidária.

 Noutras palavras, o factor central e determinante deste processo, reside nas eleições legislativas deste ano, de 2017, que definirá o quadro real de transição e a natureza do mesmo. A qualidade do processo e o equilíbrio político resultante das eleições, são elementos chaves que garantirão uma transição eficaz e estável, com capacidade de conferir a credibilidade e a legitimidade do poder político, ora eleito. 

A credibilidade e a legitimidade do processo eleitoral são factores fundamentais que permitem criar um ambiente favorável de transição, com um grau elevado de dignidade prestada ao Presidente José Eduardo dos Santos, cuja imagem, nos últimos tempos, tem estado ofuscada por vários factores, de índole moral, ético, politico, social e económico. Se este cenário estiver invertido, não só agravará a crise social e económica que o País vive, mas servirá de factor desestabilizador do processo em curso da democratização do País. Criar-se-á, neste âmbito, um ambiente conturbado que obrigará a manutenção do Consulado actual, que se encontra no estado de declínio, sem capacidade de sustentação por muito tempo. 

Na realidade, isso não depende da vontade do Presidente José Eduardo dos Santos. Mas sim, da realidade humana, que nos leva geralmente a perder o controlo sobre a nossa vida, que depende do poder de Deus. Sendo assim, seria absurdo e insensato, como Nação, tapar o solo com a peneira. Presidente Nelson Mandela, por exemplo, foi justo para consigo mesmo e para com o Povo Sul-africano. Pois, toda gente, dentro e fora do país, sabia bem do estado de saúde daquele Grande Homem da História. Ele foi transparente e não fazia questão de inventar tabus em torno disso, quando os factos contundentes vieram à superfície, de uma forma irreversível. 

O Jesus Cristo, por sua vez, quando aproximava o ponto crucial da sua vida na Terra, que o levava ao Monte Calvário, em Jerusalém, onde ficara cruxificado, foi transparente e honesto diante o seu Povo e perante os seus Apóstolos. Enfrentando os desafios com integridade, com coragem, com firmeza e com determinação. Na hora exacta, tivera que transferir a Liderança da Igreja ao seu Apostolo – o Pedro. Importa dizer que, quando mais cedo for a transição do poder, conforme fez o Nelson Mandela, mais credível e mais esplendor que se torna a figura de um Líder. Além disso, cria o ambiente saudável de estabilidade ao processo de transição do poder político.

Uma transição justa e equilibrada viabiliza a dignidade atribuída ao líder, reconhecendo os seus feitos e suas virtudes, de uma Obra histórica, que se torna num legado de uma Nação, como símbolo imponente, resultante de uma longa Epopeia. A este respeito, uma Nação digna deve ser capaz de valorizar a sua História, que é feita por homens e mulheres, sob a liderança das suas elites e dos seus protagonistas. Acima disso, a reconciliação para consigo mesmo e para com os outros é o fundamento mais solido da vida, que nos concede a graça de Deus, que consagra a nossa felicidade e nos dá a mão aberta ao próximo. Não é possível fazer justiça se não somos capazes de reconciliar com nós próprios. Um ditado diz, «a caridade bem ordenada por nós é começada». Dizia Shakespeare, neste respeito, «a caridade deve ser espontânea».  

Um Filosofo Europeu afirmava: «Não há nenhuma revolução de grandes dimensões, sem que tenha passivos». Neste respeito, se olharmos para as grandes revoluções (Egípcia, Grega-Macedónica, Romana, Austro-húngara, Americana, Inglesa, Francesa, Germânica, Otomana, Russa, Chinesa, Indiana, Sul-africana, etc.) do Mundo, veremos que todas tiveram momentos dramáticos, de actos de barbaridades, e de violações flagrantes dos direitos do homem. 

Todavia, os seus povos tiveram a sabedoria de reconciliar-se entre si, e tirar o melhor possível, no sentido de erguer uma Nação próspera, una e indivisível. Levando os seus símbolos ao mais alto Altar, servindo-se disso de elementos de referências e de orgulho nacional. A transformação dos passivos em lições de História, para a unidade nacional, faz parte integrante das «virtudes cardeais», nomeadamente: a prudência, a justiça, a fortaleza e a temperança. 

Pois, é imperativo sermos moderados nos nossos desejos e na satisfação das nossas tendências, quando buscamos o bem-comum, que se traduz no bem-estar, favorável ao desenvolvimento harmonioso e sustentável para todos os membros da sociedade – sem excepção alguma. O patriotismo e a democracia residem nessas virtudes que nos permite elucidar as nossas mentes e incutir-nos a sensatez, de saber separar o joio do trigo. O Napoleão Bonaparte, na sua visualização estratégica, afirmava o seguinte: 

“Meu maior talento, a minha marca, é que vejo tudo com clareza, o mesmo se passa com a minha eloquência, porque posso visualizar o que é essencial num problema, mesmo visto de vários ângulos.” Fim de citação.

Em tudo que fizemos, «o essencial» é que determina a nossa visão estratégica, de modo a sermos bem-sucedidos. Tivera sido deste modo em que emergiram as grandes Nações do Mundo, como os Estados Unidos da América, a Rússia e a China, que tiraram o maior benefício da sua História e dos seus timoneiros, concedendo-lhes a dignidade e a honra, como símbolos da Pátria. 

A História das Nações não se inventa. Ela existe, e afirma-se, por factos concretos. Isso aplica-se igualmente a História de Angola, em que o Presidente José Eduardo dos Santos tornou-se uma peça fundamental, como protagonista da História Pós-independência. As virtudes e as deficiências do seu Reinado longevo constituem um grande paradoxo, que envolve aspectos positivos e elementos negativos. Os quais, no cômputo geral, ergueram um Grande Castelo. Nós, como Nação, temos que saber separar o joio de trigo, descobrir o essencial do nacionalismo angolano, tirando o melhor de si, para o engrandecimento da nossa Pátria.

Por isso, se torna imperativo uma transição do poder o mais cedo possível, nas condições favoráveis, para que as virtudes do seu Consulado sejam o fundamento solido da edificação da Nação Angolana. Este é o maior desafio do País e do próprio José Eduardo dos Santos, que é a peça central deste empreendimento estratégico. 

Os outros países, da nossa região (Africa do Sul, Namíbia, Mozambique e Zâmbia), por exemplo, já deram provas da sua maturidade politica, na transição do Poder. Não obstante algumas fragilidades registadas. Porém, essas debilidades, acima referidas, são superáveis no decurso da consolidação das instituições democráticas. Os povos destes países, acima mencionados, já estão habituados a conviver com os seus antigos Presidentes, dentro do país, bem acarinhados e protegidos. Tendo a responsabilidade de cooperar com novos governos no sentido de transferir os Dossiers e os Conhecimentos acumulados ao longo da sua governação, como repositórios do Estado. 

Enfim, para sintetizar o meu raciocínio, diz-se na gíria, “a bom entendedor meia palavra basta.” Eu assim o entendo, quanto a conjuntura actual, que tem sido abordada extensivamente, quer no plano nacional, quer internacional. O êxito desta transformação não depende dos factores externos. Mas sim, da realidade interna do País, que está sob domínio de nós próprios, como cidadãos desta Pátria. O respeito escrupuloso da vontade dos eleitores, nas urnas, é o factor chave e decisivo que definirá o quadro real de transição. 

O que acaba de acontecer na Gambia, de não aceitar a derrota eleitoral pelo Partido no Poder é capaz de acontecer aqui, nas eleições deste ano. O que irá criar um quadro difícil e nebuloso. Atendendo o facto de que, o sistema do Partido-Estado, do Poder Unipessoal, mante-se intacto, quer no ponto de vista doutrinário, quer na manifestação prática. Tendo mantido todos os órgãos públicos e as instituições do Estado sob alçada do Partido no Poder. 

Sendo neste caso, a figura mais notável, o Poder Judicial, que não faz jurisprudência, na aplicação da lei, como Órgão independente de soberania do Estado. Pelo contrário, toma decisões políticas, submetendo-se ao mando do poder politico. Violando, assim, o princípio de separação de poderes, como órgão independente de soberania do Estado. Enfim, a partidarização do Estado Angolano constitui o maior obstáculo à democratização do País, e ao processo em si, de transição do poder – em vista.

Contudo, eu acredito que, a ditadura não se reforma. Por isso, o final do Reinado longevo, do Presidente José Eduardo dos Santos, pode-se transformar numa oportunidade de ouro, no sentido de efectuar mudanças profundas do sistema politico, assente nos valores democráticos de liberdade, de igualdade, de justiça, de equidade, de coesão nacional e sobretudo, de boa governação, de responsabilidade (accountability), de inclusão, de cidadania, de participação efectiva dos cidadãos e de solidariedade.

Flüchtlinge aus Afrika auf Sizilien  |  © Marina Militare/Reuters
Ein altes Boot treibt auf dem Wasser, vollgestopft mit Hunderten Flüchtlingen – dieses Bild sehen wir fast täglich im Fernsehen, in den Zeitungen, im Internet. EU-Politiker beraten, wie sie Flüchtlinge abschrecken können, wie sie Schlepperbanden bekämpfen und wie sie mit denen, die bei uns ankommen, umgehen sollen. Tausende Flüchtlinge sitzen auf Sizilien fest und hoffen auf Papiere. Wer sind sie?

Alhagie, 25 Jahre alt, und Baba, 25 Jahre alt, beide aus Gambia

Alhagie ist ein schlanker junger Mann, er trägt ein hellgelbes Hemd mit kleinen lila Punkten und eine farblich passende lila Jeans. Um seinen Hals hängen große, weiße Kopfhörer. Das Hemd sieht hübsch aus, nur etwas aus der Zeit gefallen. "Glaube ich Dir nicht, dass Dir das Hemd gefällt", sagt Alhagie. "Du würdest es niemals anziehen, hab' ich recht? Alles, was wir hier bekommen, ist Schrott. Alte Klamotten, die komisch aussehen. Aber sie sind billig. Ich habe 1,50 bezahlt oder zwei Euro." Er lacht. Alhagie ist gesprächig. Mit ihm zusammen hängen fünf andere junge Männer vor dem Eingang des Massenflüchtlingslagers Cara di Mineo auf Sizilien herum.
Was haben sie heute gemacht? Sie waren rumlaufen, erzählen sie. Ein bisschen die Hauptstraße auf und ab. Sie warten, ob irgendwas passiert. Vielleicht sammelt sie ein Bauer auf, bei dem sie einen Tag auf dem Feld arbeiten können. Manchmal passiert das. Aber heute wollte sie keiner.
"Mach bloß kein Foto von mir", sagt Alhagie. Freundlich, aber bestimmt. "Wir werden hier ständig gefilmt und fotografiert, und dann sehen wir uns im Fernsehen. Glaub mir, das ist keine Umgebung, in der du gefilmt werden möchtest. So ein furchtbarer Ort!" Alhagie und sein Freund Baba, ein großer, ganz in Orange gekleideter Mann, sind beide aus Gambia geflohen. "Ich hatte ein Problem mit der Regierung", sagt Alhagie. "Weißt Du, in Gambia hast du schnell ein Problem mit der Regierung. Du wählst den falschen Mann, du sagst das Falsche und schon sitzt du im Gefängnis. Manchmal weißt du nicht mal, was du falsch gemacht hast und sie nehmen dich trotzdem fest. Und glaub' mir, im Gefängnis in Gambia überlebst du nicht lange."
Also hat er sich aufgemacht. "Ich habe einen Rucksack mit Kleidern, meinen Papieren und etwas Geld gepackt und bin los. Irgendwen findest du immer, der dich mitnimmt. Mit Lkw habe ich es durch die Wüste geschafft bis Libyen. Dort saß ich fest. Ich habe hier und da kleine Jobs gemacht, um wieder etwas Geld zu bekommen, doch dann wurde ich festgenommen. Sie brachten mich in ein großes Gefängnis, dort haben Baba und ich uns kennengelernt."
Baba konnte fliehen. Der große Mann erzählt mit leiser Stimme: "Reiche Leute, die kleine Jobs zu vergeben haben, sind immer wieder zum Gefängnis gekommen und haben ein paar von uns für einige Tage mitgenommen. Manchmal wurden wir dafür bezahlt, manchmal nicht. An diesem Tag holte mich ein Mann und wollte, dass ich sein Dach decke. Ich habe drei Tage für einen Mann das Dach gedeckt, dann bin ich in einer Pause weggelaufen." Er sei zurück nach Tripolis, habe dort auf verschiedenen Baustellen gearbeitet und Geld gespart – für eine Überfahrt nach Italien. "Wir alle hier sind übers Meer gekommen." Baba hat etwa 700 Dollar bezahlt. Alhagie musste gar nichts bezahlen.
"Ich bin nicht aus dem Gefängnis geflohen. Eines Nachts kamen Soldaten, sie haben uns geweckt und etwa 30 von uns in einen Lastwagen verladen. Wir wussten nicht, wo sie uns hinbringen, ich dachte schon, sie erschießen uns. Dann haben sie uns an den Hafen gefahren. 'Das ist Euer Boot', sagten sie. Wir mussten an Bord gehen." Das Schiff, ein altes Fischerboot, sei völlig überfüllt gewesen. Die Fahrt dauerte fünf Tage, im Oktober 2014 fischte die Küstenwache die Flüchtlinge aus den Gewässern vor der italienischen Küste. Seitdem ist Alhagie in Mineo, hier haben Baba und er sich wieder getroffen.
"Wir dachten, wenn wir einmal übers Meer sind, haben wir es geschafft. Von wegen!" Alhagie wird wütend. "Wie sollen wir denn noch an das Leben glauben, schau doch, wie wir hier gehalten werden." Alles sei besser als ein Leben in Libyen, wirft Baba ein, denn "Libyer respektieren ihre Hunde mehr als uns Schwarze". Aber trotzdem sei der Umgang mit ihnen auch in Italien nicht gerecht. "Ihr Europäer versteht nicht, dass wir nicht kommen, um euch Jobs wegzunehmen", sagt Alhagie. "Wir wollen Euch nicht verdrängen. Wir wollen mit Euch leben. Wir wollen einfach nur ein ruhiges Leben leben. Etwas Geld verdienen, eine Frau finden, Kinder haben."

Baba Fadiga, 24 Jahre alt, aus Mali


Auf der anderen Straßenseite sitzt Baba am Straßenrand und schaut sich meine Kamera an. Er kennt sich gut aus mit Kameras, doch seit er sein Heimatland Mali verlassen hat, bekommt er selten die Gelegenheit, zu fotografieren. "Du weißt doch, was in Mali los ist?", fragt Baba. Er kommt aus Bamako, Fotografieren ist sein Hobby, das wollte er zum Beruf machen. "Ich hatte immer mehr Aufträge, es lief ganz gut." Bis zum Militärputsch im Jahr 2012. Danach wurde alles schwierig. Da sein Vater früh verstorben ist, war Babas Mutter auf die Unterstützung ihres Sohns angewiesen, aber in Bamako konnte er kein Geld mehr verdienen. "Dort herrschte Chaos." Baba beschloss, das Land zu verlassen. "Was sollte ich noch in Mali?"
Ich habe diesen Bericht eingegestellt da ich verstärkt Hilfe rufe aus bekomme und mir

          Re: West Africa   
Gambia

I just came from Gambia. I must say I have never had such respect for gay people until I saw a couple of gay Gambians at Romano in Bakau. These guys are openly gay and effeminate and couldn't care who knows inspite of the local anti gay laws and the stupid president's gay death threats. Romano plays host to a live band every Sunday night which goes on til 3.30 am Monday morning. Although the weekly event is not necessarily a gay event/venue, this event does attract some gay Gambians. These guys are good "mbalax" dancers. It is customary to give them a few Dalasis (the local currency) if you appreciate their artistry. You don't have to though. You can simply watch then walk up to them to congratulate them thereby striking a conversation. Ensure any express of interest is done discreetly when they are alone or away from their female friends. Interestingly, some of these guys were arrested few years ago but it still has not stopped them expressing themselves. Some of them are well known homosexuals.
          How safe are gay tourists in the Gambia?   
I am planning on visiting the Gambia next year.
But: how safe are you as a single white gay male travelling alone?

I am not extremely feminine, but you can see I am gay.
I want to visit the Gambia for the sun and the nice beaches, having dinner in the evening and a few drinks in a bar.
Will be staying at a middle class hotel (2 or 3 stars) in the coastal region.
Will be taking occasional trips but not looking for sex since I have been warned how dangerous that is.

Just for taking a trip like I described above and refusing offers of sex (just because I do not go on vacaction for sex) how dangerous can that be for me?

Yes, I'll be interested in meeting nice/honest local boys.

many thanks
          Re: GAMBIA IN THE LIFE   
Whished i could tell something different.
Have been in The Gambia more then 10 times, and still come there.
All the times i have been there, i never met a real gay. Some boys do act as if they are gay,
but they do so to get something from you, money, a ticket to Europe, education or what else.
As a moslim country with a president that has said that all gays should be killed, you should not expect
sympathy overthere. Ofcourse, like everywhere in the world, there are people who use there brains
and untherstand that gays are also human, and need respect!
But don't tell that The Gambia is a paradise for gays
Absolutly not!!!!!!!!!

          Re: gambia   
Agree with you regarding Gambia,you should also include other Islamic countries in Africa such as Senegal,Mali,Mauritania,Sudan. These are places to be avoided at all costs,they are extremely intolerant of gays,and risk your life,just for a few minutes of fun. No amount of money or any other incentive would ever lure me to visit such barbaric countries.
          Re: Sex tourism in Gambia...   
From www gvnet.com I transfer the fllowing passage.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above. Primary source countries are Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Benin. Trafficking of Gambian boys to Senegal for forced begging and Senegalese boys to The Gambia for the same purpose is particularly prevalent. Gambian women and girls are trafficked to Senegal for domestic servitude, and possibly for sexual exploitation. Gambian women and children may be trafficked to Europe through trafficking schemes disguised as migrant smuggling. Reports in the last two years of Gambian, Senegalese, and nationals of other neighboring countries being transported from The Gambia to Spain by boat appear to be predominantly cases of smuggling rather than trafficking. - U.S. State Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2008 [

          Denuncia - Caritas di Roma: tra i rifugiati aumentano i casi di tortura   
Avvenire
In 12 anni nel poliambulatorio diocesano sono stati presi in carico 334 pazienti. Nell'ultimo anno 45. Donne torturate e violentate. Anche casi di persone costrette ad assistere alle violenze.

«Con l'aumento dei richiedenti protezione internazionale crescono in Italia i cittadini stranieri che hanno subito varie forme di tortura ed oppressione». 


Lo denuncia la Caritas di Roma nel dossier "Ero forestiero e mi avete ospitato", elaborato in occasione della Giornata mondiale del migrante e del rifugiato 2017. 

Un capitolo è dedicato proprio ai casi di tortura, e prende spunto dal progetto "Ferite invisibili", avviato alle fine del 2005 presso il Poliambulatorio Caritas per immigrati «mirato specificatamente alla riabilitazione psicologica di queste persone che si trovano in condizione di fragilità sociale». 

E i numeri sono drammatici. In quasi 12 anni di progetto sono stati presi in carico 334 pazienti (266 uomini e 68 donne) e sono stati effettuati 4.844 colloqui psicoterapeutici con una media di 14 visite/paziente a sottolineare la complessità e la delicatezza dell'approccio terapeutico. Casi che restano molto alti. Negli ultimi 12 mesi, ci spiega il dottor Salvatore Geraci, responsabile dell'area sanitaria della Caritas e presidente della Società italiana di medicina delle migrazioni, «abbiamo seguito 45 pazienti, di cui 26 nuovi. Sono state prese in carico 37 persone, mentre le altre 8 hanno fatto il colloquio di valutazione e sono state orientate ad altri servizi territoriali. Finora sono state effettuate 425 sedute terapeutiche». «Più uomini che donne, ma spesso queste ultime oltre alla tortura hanno dovuto subire anche violenze sessuali - ci spiega ancora Geraci -. E ci sono anche casi di "tortura da spettatore", cioè essere esposto alla tortura di un familiare o di una persona che conosci».

Numeri alti ma provenienze che cambiano. Fino al 2010 i pazienti arrivavano soprattutto dall'Afghanistan, seguiti dalla Guinea, Nigeria e Eritrea. Dal 2011 al 2013 soprattutto da Costa d'Avorio, seguiti da Afghanistan, Camerun e Senegal. Tra il 2014 e 2015 si nota un aumento graduale e significativo di quelli provenienti dal Gambia. Attualmente prevalgono le persone in arrivo da Pakistan, Mali, Nigeria e Senegal. Vengono da paesi di guerre e di persecuzioni, accomunati dalle violenze subite nel loro paese o durante il viaggio.Casi molto difficili. 

Così l'equipe che li segue è formata da psicoterapeuti, psichiatri, mediatori culturali, infermieri, operatori del sociale, medici, e offre un servizio di ascolto e di psicoterapia transculturale. «L'aiuto - si legge sempre nel dossier -, attraverso un attento lavoro di equipe, consiste innanzitutto nel far riconoscere l'orrore vissuto e le "ferite" psichiche indotte, affinché queste persone possano riappropriarsi della dignità di esseri umani, dare un significato alla loro esperienza e riprogettare un futuro per la loro esistenza. Nel contempo cerca anche di costituire una fitta rete socio-assistenziale per sostenere percorsi legali, informativi e formativi (accoglienza protetta, insegnamento della lingua italiana, formazione professionale, inserimento lavorativo...)». Un lavoro prezioso al punto che nel febbraio 2012, l'Ufficio delle Nazioni Unite dell'Alto Commissario per i Diritti Umani ha riconosciuto il servizio all'interno della rete sovrannazionale di sostegno e cura alle vittime di tortura. «Sono persone fragili, da tutelare, da non ritraumatizzare», sottolinea Geraci.

Ma c'è un altro fenomeno che preoccupa gli operatori della Caritas, in parte collegato a quella delle torture. Infatti parallelamente all'aumento degli sbarchi «è stato possibile registrare un incremento sensibile dei ricoveri di pazienti stranieri negli ospedali psichiatrici italiani, ed è ipotizzabile (sia pur tutto da dimostrare) un qualche tipo di relazione tra le due osservazioni».

 Anche qui i numeri sono chiari: nel 2009 i ricoveri di stranieri in psichiatria sono stati 2.682 maschi e 3.362 femmine, più o meno in linea con gli anni precedenti; nel 2011, i ricoveri sono passati a 4.518 maschi e 4.909 femmine, mantenendosi anche negli anni successivi intorno a quest'ordine di grandezza, «con un incremento repentino e piuttosto significativo, che non si correla a un corrispondente aumento dello stock di immigrati nel Paese». Di conseguenza, i tassi sono passati da 122 a 188 ospedalizzazioni ogni 100mila immigrati residenti, con un incremento superiore al 50%.

Gambia

I just came from Gambia. I must say I have never had such respect for gay people until I saw a couple of gay Gambians at Romano in Bakau. These guys are openly gay and effeminate and couldn't care who knows inspite of the local anti gay laws and the stupid president's gay death threats. Romano plays host to a live band every Sunday night which goes on til 3.30 am Monday morning. Although the weekly event is not necessarily a gay event/venue, this event does attract some gay Gambians. These guys are good "mbalax" dancers. It is customary to give them a few Dalasis (the local currency) if you appreciate their artistry. You don't have to though. You can simply watch then walk up to them to congratulate them thereby striking a conversation. Ensure any express of interest is done discreetly when they are alone or away from their female friends. Interestingly, some of these guys were arrested few years ago but it still has not stopped them expressing themselves. Some of them are well known homosexuals.
          How safe are gay tourists in the Gambia?   
I am planning on visiting the Gambia next year.
But: how safe are you as a single white gay male travelling alone?

I am not extremely feminine, but you can see I am gay.
I want to visit the Gambia for the sun and the nice beaches, having dinner in the evening and a few drinks in a bar.
Will be staying at a middle class hotel (2 or 3 stars) in the coastal region.
Will be taking occasional trips but not looking for sex since I have been warned how dangerous that is.

Just for taking a trip like I described above and refusing offers of sex (just because I do not go on vacaction for sex) how dangerous can that be for me?
          Re: Visiting the Gambia   
Hello !
Yes, I'll be interested in meeting nice/honest local boys.
If you know anyone, I'll be happy to receive your help and experience.
many thanks
          Re: GAMBIA IN THE LIFE   
Whished i could tell something different.
Have been in The Gambia more then 10 times, and still come there.
All the times i have been there, i never met a real gay. Some boys do act as if they are gay,
but they do so to get something from you, money, a ticket to Europe, education or what else.
As a moslim country with a president that has said that all gays should be killed, you should not expect
sympathy overthere. Ofcourse, like everywhere in the world, there are people who use there brains
and untherstand that gays are also human, and need respect!
But don't tell that The Gambia is a paradise for gays
Absolutly not!!!!!!!!!
          Re: Some recent information from The Gambia   
Is that you on the picture?
Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww
I think i love you!!!!!!!
          Re: Gambians against Government`s anti-gay stance   
In that case keep your gay sex tourism visits to African countries where gayness is either legal or tolerated... South Africa, Burkina Faso and Togo are the only countries I know where gayness is either legal or tolerated... Please let us know of others
          Re: gambia   
Agree with you regarding Gambia,you should also include other Islamic countries in Africa such as Senegal,Mali,Mauritania,Sudan. These are places to be avoided at all costs,they are extremely intolerant of gays,and risk your life,just for a few minutes of fun. No amount of money or any other incentive would ever lure me to visit such barbaric countries.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above.

          Fim da novela do N800?   
Depois de 4 meses, inúmeras ligações, chats, e-mails e reclamações com todo mundo, o problema foi resolvido.

Ah, mencionei que fui também ao PROCON[1]?

Então, a solução chegou semana passada numa caixa da DHL lá em casa. Um N810 novo enviado pela Nokia.

Fiz vários testes e ele parece estar 100%.

Ah, não posso deixar de descrever as óbvias diferenças entre o N800 e o N810:

N800:
- Resolução de cores da tela é muito melhor
- A tela é mais clara, mais fácil de ler algo no sol
- O touchscreen parece que tem um feedback melhor
- O som onboard é virado pra cima, o que faz com que eu ouça o som e não as pessoas do lado como no N810.
- O N800 tem 2 full sized SD/SDHC slots.
- O conector USB é padrão (mini USB, como 90% das câmeras digitais)
- O apoio de mesa é frágil e tem que tomar muito cuidado pra não quebrar.

N810:
- Tem GPS! Mas é beeem fraquinho e demora um monte pra pegar sinal. Se estiver qualquer tipo de telhado acima dele, esqueça.
- Tem teclado! Mas os meus dedos são grandes .. De qualquer modo, o teclado touch screen eu já estou mais acostumado e vai muito bem.
- O N810 só tem UM slot MiniSD (quem diabos usa MiniSD hoje em dia??), e o meu adaptador MicroSD/MiniSD ainda não chegou do DealExtreme. O antigo slot interno parece que veio coberto e lacrado com um cartão lá dentro fixado. Acho que com algum hardware-hacking depois que a garantia expirar dá pra fazer uma gambia e adaptar um full sized SDHC slot.
- A caneta é de qualidade bem inferior à do n800. (não que faça muita diferença)
- A construção em geral é claramente de qualidade inferior à do n800 (coincidência ou não, o N800 era made in Finland e o N810 é made in Korea)
- A velocidade no geral melhorou bastante, a navegação ficou bem mais fluida do
que no N800, e o Mplayer está rodando muito bem.
- O conector USB é bem esquisito, pelo jeito é um MicroUSB, que encontrei no Deal
Extreme e já encomendei um pra ter spare. Mas é bem diferente de tudo que já vi.
- O apoio de mesa é mais frágil ainda e sei que vou ter que tomar MUITO cuidado pra não quebrar.

[1] - Que, inclusive, recomendo. O atendimento foi excelente, não peguei filas,
não fiquei esperando muito tempo, deveria ter ido antes.

Daarna nog een vraag en ik belde terug ,kreeg [hierbij de naam onthouden ,Maria aan de telefoon} haar toon stond mij al niet aan omdaT ze al geirriteerd was dat ik nog een keer belde voor een vraag.Het komt hier op neer zei vertelde mij het voelde als dat ik iedere keer op de plek gezet werd of ik mijn mail wel goed gelezen had.. Iedere keer . werd ik op mijn plaats gezet door haar ,ik voel me erg in de zeik genomen door uw mederwersters en niet voor vol aan gezien.Misschien kun u uw band terug luisteren met ons gesprek ,hierbij is te horen hoe ik werd behandeld door Maria.Ik heb de volgende reis geen behoeft aan Tui meer.

          Netizen Report: Venezuela’s Conflict Moves From the Streets to the Internet   

The Netizen Report offers an international snapshot of challenges, victories, and emerging trends in internet rights around the world. It originally appears each week on Global Voices Advocacy. Afef Abrougui, Ellery Roberts Biddle, Marianne Diaz, Don Le, Elizabeth Rivera, Laura Vidal, and Sarah Myers West contributed to this report.

On the night of June 28, internet users across Venezuela reported that multiple major web and social media sites had gone dark. According to the digital rights organization Venezuela Inteligente:

DNS servers of the State’s Internet Service Provider CANTV were not responding to the DNS requests on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Periscope, preventing users to access these platforms.

An hour later, users were able to access those sites again. This wave of censorship comes in a moment when Venezuela’s government is facing record levels of public opposition and unrest, and a rapidly escalating economic crisis that has led to widespread hunger and threats to public health countrywide. Internet access has significantly deteriorated since May 2016, when the government declared a (still ongoing) state of emergency and officially authorized online content filtering. In May 2017, the Index on Censorship published evidence of 41 websites being blocked in the country.

While authorities may see social media censorship as a useful short-term mechanism for limiting speech that sparks public unrest, they too rely on internet access to communicate with their citizens.

Just last week, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro ordered officials to investigate Twitter employees in Venezuela for suspending the accounts of 180 government employees and chavistas, as supporters of former president Hugo Chávez are known. Maduro vowed to “unmask” the identities of the Twitter officials responsible and to create thousands of new accounts to continue the “battle on social media.”

One Vietnamese blogger jailed, another forced into exile
On June 29, well-known Vietnamese human rights blogger and community leader Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh (who blogged under the name Mother Mushroom) was sentenced to 10 years in prison after a Khanh Hoa district court convicted her of distorting government policies and defaming the Communist regime both on Facebook and in interviews with foreign media outlets.

Vietnamese authorities also forced professor Pham Minh Hoang into exile on June 24. Hoang was stripped of his nationality in May and forcibly removed from his house on June 23. He said he was detained for 24 hours before authorities forced him onto a plane to Paris. He is now separated from his wife and young daughter and unable to take care of his disabled older brother. A blogger and member of Viet Tan, the Vietnamese democratic political movement, Hoang was detained for 17 months beginning xin 2010. He has conducted trainings on cybersecurity, human rights, and leadership skills since his release. “I still have a little hope, one day, to come back to live and die in Vietnam,” he told Associated Press.

Independent Cuban journalist arrested, accused of spreading “false news”
Cuban journalist Manuel Alejandro León Velázquez was arrested by Cuban state security officers in Guantánamo province and detained for two days. Police also confiscated electronic equipment; mobile phone;, several hundred dollars worth of U.S., EU, and Cuban currency; and his passport and press card. León Velázquez is a reporter for the independent news website Diario de Cuba and has covered hurricane relief efforts and infrastructure challenges in eastern Cuba. He has been summoned for a meeting with police on July 3, who charge that he has been distributing “false news.”

Moroccan web editor detained, awaiting trial
A video journalist and the director of the news website Rif24 was arrested on June 6 in the Rif region of Morocco, where protests focused on the declining economy, poor infrastructure, and government corruption have been taking place since October 2016. Mohamed al-Asrihi is currently in pre-trial detention on charges including practicing journalism without official accreditation and receiving foreign funding from “separatists” abroad. He is reportedly being held in solitary confinement in Casablanca’s Oukacha Prison.

At Thailand’s behest, YouTube censors Charlie Chaplin’s Great Dictator
A video clip of Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator has been blocked on YouTube at the behest of the military-backed government of Thailand. Internet users reported on June 24 that the video clip with Thai subtitles was inaccessible on YouTube. The page for the video instead displayed the standard message: “This content is not available on this country domain due to a legal complaint from the government.”

The 1940 film The Great Dictator parodied the rise of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. June 24 is the day when Thailand commemorates the 1932 revolution, which ended the country’s absolute monarchy.

Chinese netizens’ days using VPNs may be numbered
Internet users are anticipating that the majority of virtual private network apps for individual use will be inaccessible in mainland China by July 1. Whisperings of a state ban on unauthorized VPNs spread widely on Twitter and Weibo after the popular VPN service provider Green announced that the company would cease operations by July 1. That date is sensitive because it marks the 20th anniversary of the transfer of Hong Kong from British to Chinese power. However, there is not yet conclusive evidence that there is a direct connection. The move may also indicate a forthcoming ban has been expedited. China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology had announced that it will ban “illegal services,” including unauthorized VPNs, in March 2018.

Kenyan officials promise not to shut down the internet on election day
After Gabon and the Gambia shut down networks during recent elections, inquiring minds want to know whether Kenya will follow in their footsteps during upcoming elections on Aug. 8. In a press statement, Kenyan Information and Communications Technology Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru affirmed, “We are a digital country and that is not our intention. It is not even a remote fall back position.”

Artigo no Alerta Total – www.alertatotal.net
Por Sérgio Taboada

Enfim uma proposta realista capaz de debelar a crise política, social e econômica pela qual passa nosso país. Sejamos pragmáticos! Nosso problema não é a corrupção. É o saque! Esse precisa ser proibido e punido até com prisão perpétua se for o caso. Já a corrupção não. Como  patrimônio cultural da nossa sociedade é necessária apenas sua regulação.

As pessoas, após o festival de delação premiada que colocou à mostra as cifras bilionárias movimentadas em propinas, entraram em pânico. Chocadas com o que viram saíam às ruas e redes sociais gritando histericamente contra a corrupção. Mas, o que elas viram não foi corrupção. Foi saque! Não percebem que os fatos revelam algo muito pior do que o hábito brasileiro de levar vantagem em quase tudo. Corrupção é algo menor. Saque é algo muito maior. Corrupção é do bem! Saque é do mal!

Podemos determinar uma tabela. Valores até cinquenta milhões serão considerados mera  corrupção. A partir daí já é saque. A corrupção será permitida em valores pequenos. No caso de contratos de serviços e obras com a Administração Pública o superfaturamento será possível até dez por cento. Somente se passar desses valores e percentuais é que será considerado saque!

Dessa forma pacificamos o país, os corruptos se acalmam, os investigadores poderão focar nas grandes cifras e a população será livre para continuar fazendo as “gambiarras” do dia a dia para sobreviver. Que tal uma bolsa corrupção? Melhor não. Vai virar debate ideológico. A proposta aqui é revolucionária. Corrupção para todos independentemente de concepções partidárias, religiosas ou filosóficas.

Sobre a renda auferida com a corrupção poderemos cobrar impostos menores para garantir incentivos fiscais aos cidadãos competentemente corruptos e para os mais pobres será dada isenção total em impostos e tributos.

Poderá haver prêmios anuais para os melhores corruptos e medalhas de honra ao mérito para aqueles que empregarem parte desses recursos em programas sociais. As crianças serão ensinadas a serem honestamente corruptas. Os pais dirão: “_Nunca aceite mais de dez por cento de propina!” “Nunca faça o serviço pela metade. Faça pelo menos noventa por cento!” “_Hoje roube um lápis do seu coleguinha, mas não pegue mais uma borracha que eu castigo!”

Já quanto ao saque... O saque de milhões e bilhões de reais que afunda o Brasil será punido ferozmente!! Sugerimos inclusive que seja proibido “lenga-lenga,” ataques a investigadores e à imprensa, apoio de deputado e senador e solidariedade de ministro do Supremo aos pegos saqueando o país.  Nada de moleza para esses indivíduos. Serão proibidos de usar o direito de defesa para postegar julgamentos, choro falso pela família, cinismo absoluto e jamais poderão dizer “sou inocente” ou “não renunciarei!”

Para esses, o chamado processo legal será realizado ao contrário. Primeiro serão presos  e condenados a no mínimo dez anos de prisão e só então começarão a ser ouvidas as testemunhas de defesa, que com certeza, boa parte, será presa por falso testemunho. O ato final será a confirmação ou não da pena. Se for considerado culpado a pena poderá aumentar. Se for considerado inocente, o que é quase impossível, o juiz responsável pelo julgamento será preso porque com certeza será fraude processual. O julgamento do réu será anulado e a a pena dobrada.

Para terminar essa moderna proposta adequada ao tipo de país que temos hoje, as delações premiadas para os casos de “saqueação” serão ampliadas e popularizadas e deverão ser transmitidas aos vivo nesses programas dominicais com direito a plateia, shows de calouros da corrupção e histórias de roubos extraordinários. As contrapartidas pelas delações incluirão redução de penas, prisão domiciliar, eletrodomésticos, geladeiras, móveis, televisões, sofás, celulares e passagens aéreas.

Ahhh, e ninguém se envergonhará de usar estampados em camisetas os rostos dos seus bandidos de estimação com suas frases icônicas. “A corrupção não acabou!,”  “Corruptos Uni-vos!” “ Mas vale um corrupto vivo, que um herói morto!” “ A corrupção de esquerda faz bem ao país,” “Corrupção liberal e de direita: a solução,” "Eu amor ser corrupto," “Brasil a pátria da corrupção!”

Mas, no fundo, no fundo, esse texto acima é fruto do desespero.

O que eu quero mesmo é gritar!!!!

Gritar desesperadamente:

ACOOORDAAAAA  BRASILEIROOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

PELO AMOR AOS SEUS FILHOS, IRMÃOS, NETOS!

POR AMOR AOS SEU PAÍS!

ACOOOOOOORRRRRDDDAAAAAAAAA!

          Human Rights Watch Country Profiles: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity   

The following are excerpts from the Human Rights Watch 2017 World Report  that relate to the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. The report, released in January 2017, documented events of 2016. In some cases, we have added updates from the first half of 2017.

The countries are all listed below in alphabetical order. This compilation is not comprehensive. If a country is not listed, that means there was no mention of LGBTI/SOGI issues for that country in the 2017 World Report. For example, many of the smaller Caribbean countries and some African countries are omitted due to research limitations, but most have anti-LGBT laws on the books and pervasive homophobia and transphobia. On the other hand, several countries that are not included here made progress in the 2016-2017 period: Belize, Nauru and the Seychelles all decriminalized consensual same-sex conduct, for example. Human Rights Watch has only recently begun investigating the rights of intersex people, so there are few references to intersex rights.

This is a living document which will be updated regularly to reflect new events and further Human Rights Watch research.

Argentina

In 2010, Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage. The Civil Marriage Law allows same-sex couples to enter into civil marriages and affords them the legal protections of marriage enjoyed by opposite sex couples, including adoption rights and pension benefits. Since 2010, nearly 15,000 same-sex couples have married nationwide. In 2012, the landmark Gender Identity Law established the right of individuals over the age of 18 to choose their gender identity, undergo gender reassignment, and revise official documents without any prior judicial or medical approval.

Armenia

Activists reported that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LBGTI) people face discrimination, harassment, and violence. The government has not addressed hate speech or discrimination against LGBTI people. Gender identity and sexual orientation are not included as protected grounds in anti-discrimination or hate speech laws, limiting legal recourse for many crimes against LGBTI people. Following the October 2015 Rainbow forum, organized by Armenian LGBTI-friendly groups to discuss protection and promotion of minority rights, anonymous people targeted some participants with intimidation and threats, mostly on social media, including to burn and kill them. Authorities refused to launch a criminal investigation into the threats, citing lack of evidence. In June 2016, the LGBT rights group, PINK Armenia, published a survey revealing that 90 percent of the population is hostile to LGBTI people and support limits on their rights. In July 2016, PINK Armenia released a report documenting 46 cases of violence and discrimination against LGBTI people in 2015. The government has not taken meaningful steps to combat stereotypes and discrimination against LGBTI people.

Australia

Australia does not recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry. The Australian government announced a plebiscite on the right of same-sex couples to marry, but political opponents blocked it, arguing a plebiscite is expensive and wasteful and that the issue should be determined by a parliamentary free vote.

Australia continued its policy of intercepting asylum seekers and forcibly transferring them to Nauru and, until 2016, to Manus Island in Papua New Guinea. Asylum seekers or refugees perceived to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or intersex (LGBTI) face harassment and abuse despite the recent decriminalization of same-sex conduct in Nauru. In Papua New Guinea, such conduct remains criminalized.

Bangladesh

Bangladesh witnessed a spate of violent attacks against secular bloggers, academics, gay rights activists, foreigners, and members of religious minorities in 2016. Prominent gay activists Xulhaz Mannan, the founder of Roopbaan, Bangladesh’s first lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) magazine, and Mahbub Rabby Tonoy, the general secretary of the group, were  murdered in April. Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) claimed responsibility for the killings. Fearing for their lives, many LGBT activists sought temporary refuge outside the country.

“Carnal intercourse against the order of nature” carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. In May 2017, police raided a private gathering of gay and bisexual men, and allegedly paraded them in front of media, exposing them to their families and the public. Authorities said they declined to press charges under the colonial-era sodomy law because they did not catch the men in the act of sexual intercourse. The government has twice rejected recommendations to repeal the colonial-era law during its Universal Periodic Review at the UN Human Rights Council. The Bangladesh cabinet in 2014 declared legal recognition of a third gender category for hijras—a traditional cultural identity for transgender people who, assigned male at birth, do not identify as men—but the absence of a definition of the term or procedure for gaining recognition of third gender status led to abuses in implementation of the legal change. In June and July 2015, a group of hijras were subjected to harassment and invasive and abusive physical examinations at a government hospital as a requirement to join a government employment program. The Bangladesh National Human Rights Commission in 2017 agreed with LGBT civil society groups to establish a desk at the commission for reporting SOGI-related issues.

Belarus

Parliament adopted a vaguely worded bill in May 2016 on “protecting children from information harmful for their health and development.” These provisions may be used to restrict dissemination of neutral or positive information about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as “discrediting the institution of the family.”

Bolivia

In May 2016, the Plurinational Assembly passed a bill that allows people to revise the gender noted on their identification documents without prior judicial approval. Same-sex couples in Bolivia are not allowed to marry or engage in civil unions. The 2009 constitution defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Sarajevo Open Centre, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights organization, documented 23 cases of hate speech and incitement of violence and hate and two crimes and incidents motivated by prejudice on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity in the first three months of 2016. The reaction of authorities to these incidents is generally inadequate. There was no progress in police investigations into the 2014 attack on a film festival that Sarajevo Open Centre organized.

In its annual progress on Bosnia and Herzegovina published in November, the European Commission highlighted the failure of authorities to amend the constitution, in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights and to implement rulings by the Constitutional Court. The report also identified inadequate legal protection for LGBTI persons and the failure of authorities to protect adequately the rights of minorities and to ensure media freedom.

Brazil

Brazil’s Supreme Court approved same-sex marriage in 2011 and it upheld the right of same-sex couples to adopt children in 2015. But the Chamber of Deputies was, at time of writing, debating a bill that would define a family as a union between a man and a woman. The national Human Rights Ombudsman’s Office received 1,983 complaints of violence, discrimination, and other abuses experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in 2015. In the first half of 2016 the ombudsman received 879 such complaints.

Burma

Burma’s national penal code criminalizes consensual same-sex behavior between adult men. In recent years police have arrested gay men and transgender women assembling in public places, and politicians have called for the “education” of gay people.

Cameroon

Cameroon’s penal code punishes “sexual relations between persons of the same sex” with up to five years in prison. The law is regularly enforced, and in previous years, the Cameroonian authorities have subjected men arrested under this law to forced anal examinations. Although the number of arrests appeared to decrease for several years, activists reported a new uptick in arrests and prosecutions in 2016.

Chile

A “civil union” bill presented by former President Sebastián Piñera in 2011 that provides legal recognition and protection for same-sex couples became law in April 2015 and went into effect in October 2015. In September 2016, the Senate Human Rights Commission approved a bill to recognize the gender identity of transgender people, with a Senate vote expected in December.

China

China has no law protecting people from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, and there is no legal recognition of same-sex partnership. Possibly because their activism is not considered threatening to the state, LGBT individuals enjoyed some success advancing legal cases in 2016. In January, a Hunan court heard a case filed by Sun Wenlin against the local Bureau of Civil Affairs, which had refused to marry Sun and his male partner. Though the court ruled against Sun in April, his case—the first gay marriage lawsuit accepted by Chinese courts—attracted wide media attention. In June, a Henan court accepted a case filed by Yu Hu against a mental health hospital that had subjected him to 19 days of involuntary “therapy” to “cure” his homosexuality. Also in June, a Guangdong university student, Qiu Bai, sued the provincial education department over textbooks that depict homosexuality as an illness. Qiu filed a similar suit in 2015, though she withdrew it later because the department had promised to look into the matter. She decided to sue again after the authorities’ pledge failed to materialize. In June, China voted against a UN resolution creating an expert post dedicated to addressing violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Colombia

In September 2016, the Council of the State—one of Colombia’s high courts—annulled the 2012 re-election of Alejandro Ordoñez as the country’s inspector general and dismissed him from office. Under Colombian law, the inspector general is charged with protecting human rights, but during his seven years in office, Ordoñez repeatedly sought to undermine the rights of women and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.

In recent years, authorities in Colombia have taken several steps to recognize the rights of LGBT people. In June 2015, the Justice Ministry issued a decree allowing people to revise the gender noted on their identification documents without prior judicial approval. In November 2015, the Constitutional Court ruled that sexual orientation could not be used to prohibit someone from adopting a child, although a legislative proposal to hold a referendum on this issue remained pending at time of writing. In April 2016, the Constitutional Court upheld the right of same-sex couples to marry. In October 2016, FARC leaders met with conservative politicians and agreed to promote a definition of the family as formed by a man and a woman. The FARC backtracked after meeting with LGBT representatives days later. Conservative politicians and evangelist leaders had attacked the peace agreement claiming that it would “destroy families.” Between January and June 2016, the Ombudsman’s Office received 89 reports of cases of violence against LGBTI people.

Cote d’Ivoire

No law prohibits discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender identity, or intersex status. Côte d’Ivoire does not criminalize same-sex conduct, but the criminal code establishes higher penalties for same-sex couples convicted of public acts of indecency. Two men were in November convicted of public indecency and sentenced to three-month prison terms after being accused of same-sex sexual acts. Two gay men were assaulted in June 2016 after a photo was published of them signing a book of condolences to the victims of a shooting at a gay nightclub in Florida, US.

Croatia

In February, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) ruled that Croatia discriminated on grounds of sexual orientation against a woman from Bosnia and Herzegovina, by denying her the right to a residence permit in Croatia to join her female partner.

Ecuador

In 2016, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruled against Ecuador in a case determining that it is discriminatory to punish officers who allegedly have homosexual sex on military installations.

Egypt

Sexual relations outside marriage are criminalized. Since 2013, authorities have pursued a campaign to intimidate, track, and arrest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, including entrapment using social media applications. Police regularly used forced anal examinations in prosecutions of those suspected of homosexual sex. Solidarity With Egypt LGBTQ+, an advocacy group, said it had recorded 114 criminal investigations involving 274 LGBT individuals launched between the end of 2013 and November 2016, 66 of which involved the authorities’ use of social media.

Estonia

The government failed to adopt amendments that would allow the Co-Habitation Act to fully enter into force in 2016. The act is progressive legislation that extends the rights of marriage to unmarried—including same-sex—couples, encompassing, among other things, child adoption and property rights.

Gambia

The government continued to resist calls to repeal laws that criminalize homosexuality, including an October 2014 law that introduced a series of new “aggravated homosexuality” offenses that impose sentences of up to life in prison. The criminalization of same-sex conduct leaves lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Gambians at risk of arbitrary arrest and detention, although fewer arrests and physical abuse of LGBT Gambians were reported in 2016.

Georgia

In August, President Giorgi Margvelashvili blocked a referendum bid on defining marriage as a union of a man and a woman, saying that the issue is already covered in the civil code. Kvirikashvili vowed to pursue a constitutional definition of marriage after the October elections, arguing that this would help counter alleged Western efforts to spread same-sex marriage “propaganda” in Georgia. Local rights groups feared this effort would further marginalize the LGBT community and intensify anti-LGBT prejudice. Authorities declined a request by LGBT activists to hold an event to mark International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) on Tbilisi’s main thoroughfare, stating it was already booked for a procession by Orthodox groups to mark Family Day, an annual event established by the Orthodox Church in 2014. Activists refused to celebrate IDAHO in the alternative venue offered. The Women’s Initiatives Supporting Group (WISG), a local LGBTI rights group, said it documented almost 20 cases of attacks against transgender people in 2016. In October, a transgender woman was beaten and stabbed in what rights groups suspected was a hate crime. Police arrested a suspect on attempted murder charges, and the public defender urged authorities to examine a possible hate motive.

Honduras

Rampant crime and impunity for human rights abuses remain the norm in Honduras. Despite a downward trend in recent years, the murder rate is among the highest in the world. Journalists, peasant activists, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals are among those most vulnerable to violence.

In June 2016, several United Nations agencies working in Honduras urged the government to investigate killings of LGBTI activists and noted that sexual violence against LGBTI individuals forces them into “internal displacement” or to flee the country in search of international protection.

Hungary

In August 2016, a lower court sentenced a right-wing extremist to 10 years’ imprisonment for violent attacks between 2007 and 2009, including throwing Molotov cocktails at the homes of socialist MPs and an attack on a gay bar in Budapest.

In July, the ECtHR ruled that Hungary had arbitrarily detained an Iranian gay man and failed to take into account his vulnerability in detention arising from his sexual orientation.

India

In February 2016, the Supreme Court of India allowed a challenge to section 377 of the penal code to proceed, referring the case to a five-judge bench. The colonial-era provision, which the court had upheld in 2013, criminalizes same-sex relations between adults. In June, several well-known LGBT professionals filed a petition in Supreme Court arguing that section 377 violates the right to life and personal liberty, but the Supreme Court deferred the petition to the Chief Justice. In August, the government introduced a new bill in parliament on the rights of transgender persons. The bill was flawed, however, by provisions that were inconsistent with the 2014 Supreme Court ruling that recognized transgender individuals as a third gender and found them eligible for quotas in jobs and education.

India’s voting record on rights issues at the UN was disappointing. In July, the government abstained on a resolution that created a UN expert post to address discrimination against LGBT persons and voted in favor of amendments to weaken the mandate, saying India’s Supreme Court was still to decide on the issue of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights.

Indonesia

Starting in January 2016, high-ranking Indonesian officials made a series of vitriolic anti-LGBT statements and policy pronouncements, fueling increased threats and at times violent attacks on LGBT activists and individuals. In some cases, the threats and violence occurred in the presence, and with the tacit support, of government officials or security forces. State institutions, including the National Broadcasting Commission and the National Child Protection Commission, issued censorship directives banning information and broadcasts that portrayed the lives of LGBT people as “normal” as well as so-called propaganda about LGBT lives. Ministries proposed discriminatory and regressive anti-LGBT laws. An ongoing case in the Constitutional Court is considering a petition that proposed amending the criminal code to criminalize sex outside of marriage and same-sex sexual relations. During the initial hearings, the petitioners—led by a group called the Family Love Alliance—put forward ill-informed and bigoted testimony similar to the anti-LGBT rhetoric espoused by Indonesian officials and politicians earlier that year. The government, the respondent in the case, said criminalizing sex out of wedlock would make “the sinner a criminal, and the government authoritarian,” a view echoed in testimony by the National Commission on Violence Against Women and other groups opposed to the petition. At time of writing the court had not yet ruled on the petition. While president Joko Widodo, or “Jokowi” in October 2016 declared that police must protect LGBT people and not discriminate against them, he failed to uphold that principle in action. In 2017, police raided at least two private gatherings of gay and bisexual men on the pretense of the discriminatory anti-pornography law, which construes gay sex as “deviant” and prescribes increased punishments for it, and Sharia police publicly flogged two gay men for private, consensual sex in Aceh province.

Iran

Under Iranian law, many nonviolent crimes, such as “insulting the Prophet,” apostasy, same-sex relations, adultery, and drug-related offenses, are punishable by death.

In March, the United Nations Children’s Rights Committee noted that flogging was still a lawful punishment for boys and girls convicted of certain crimes. The committee noted reports that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) children had been subjected to electric shocks to “cure” them.

Iraq

ISIS’s Diwan al-Hisba (Moral Policing Administration) and online media apparatuses have publicly announced 27 executions of allegedly gay men, at least nine of them in Iraq. The main method ISIS used to execute these men has been to throw them off the roofs of high-rise buildings.

Iraq’s penal code does not prohibit same-sex intimacy, although article 394 makes it illegal to engage in extra-marital sexual relations. Due to the fact that the law does not expressly allow same-sex marriage, it effectively prohibits all same-sex relations. In July 2016 Moqtada al-Sadr, the prominent Shia opposition cleric, stated that although same-sex relationships are not acceptable, individuals who do not conform to gender norms suffer from “psychological problems,” and should not be attacked.

Israel/Palestine

There are different legal systems in occupied Palestinian Territory. The British Mandate Criminal Code Ordinance, No. 74 of 1936 is in force in Gaza. In the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, the Jordanian Penal Code of 1960 applies, and does not contain provisions prohibiting adult consensual same-sex conduct. In Gaza, having “unnatural intercourse” of a sexual nature, understood to include same-sex relationships, is a crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison. In February 2016, Hamas’s armed wing executed one of its fighters ostensibly for “behavioral and moral violations,” which Hamas officials acknowledged meant same-sex relations.

Italy

As of May 2016, same-sex couples may have their relationships legally recognized as civil unions, though they do not have the right to adopt.

Japan

A bipartisan parliamentary group established in March 2015 continued to discuss legislation to address discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, but at time of writing it had yet to come up with an agreed draft bill. Japanese law treats those requesting legal recognition as transgender as having a “Gender Identity Disorder” and requires obtaining such medical diagnosis. It also requires forced sterilization, compulsory single status, not having any underage children, and being 20 years or older. While same-sex marriage is not legally recognized in Japan, Tokyo’s Shibuya ward in April 2015 became the first municipality to pass a regulation recognizing same-sex partnerships, with more municipalities recognizing such partnerships in 2016 and 2017. Bullying is a problem in Japanese schools generally, and particularly so against LGBT students. In April 2016, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) for the first time released a guidebook for teachers regarding sexual orientation and gender identity. And in 2017, MEXT announced amendments to the national bullying prevention policy to include specific mention of LGBT students for the first time.

Jamaica

Jamaica is moving toward a revision of its rape law, which currently defines rape as the penetration of the vagina with the penis without consent. A proposal has been floated for a new law that is gender neutral. The absence of a gender-neutral rape law has been put forth in the past by politicians as justification for retaining Jamaica’s colonial-era “buggery” law, which criminalizes both consensual and non-consensual sex between men. The possible promulgation of a gender-neutral law on rape or sexual assault may therefore be a first step toward decriminalization of consensual same-sex conduct.

Kazakhstan

Surveys of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people reveal that many hide their sexual orientation or gender identity—including to healthcare providers—out of fear of reprisals or discrimination. When LGBT people report abuse, they often face indifference and hostility from authorities. Transgender people must undergo humiliating and invasive procedures—including coerced sterilization—to change gender on official documents. Without identity documents, transgender people struggle to access employment, healthcare, and education. The UN Human Rights Committee called on the government to end discrimination and violence against LGBT people and review gender-reassignment surgery procedures.

Kenya

Kenya’s penal code prohibits “carnal knowledge against the order of nature,” generally understood as consensual sex between men, and “indecent practices between males.” Civil society organizations and activists filed two landmark constitutional petitions against these sections in April and June 2016, arguing that the laws violate constitutional rights, including the rights to equality and nondiscrimination, human dignity, freedom and security of the person, privacy, and health. Kenya continued the prosecution of two men on charges of “carnal knowledge” after police arbitrarily arrested them in Kwale County in February 2015. The case remained open but was suspended pending the ruling of a constitutional petition filed by the two men, asserting that state officials had violated their rights by subjecting them to a forced anal examination. The High Court rejected the petition on the grounds that the men consented to the examination, ignoring that the men were in police custody and not able to provide free and informed consent. The men have appealed the ruling. The government appealed a 2015 High Court decision ordering the Non-Governmental Organizations Board to register the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (NGLHRC), a civil society group. Parties were awaiting a hearing date at time of writing. The Kenya Film Classification Board overstepped its jurisdiction in asking YouTube to remove a locally produced video addressing same-sex relationships, prohibiting an alleged lesbian speed-dating event, and attempting to ban a podcast with alleged lesbian content.

In May 2017, the Attorney General established a “Taskforce on Policy, Legal, Institutional and Administrative Reforms Regarding Intersex Persons in Kenya.” Its mandate includes to “recommend comprehensive reforms to safeguard the interests of intersex persons.” The secretariat of the task force is based at the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights. The task force will be open to receiving submissions on best practices from around the world, and there is a strong possibility that it will result in the establishment of policies that protect the rights of intersex people. While it will not directly address SOGI related rights, the task force may produce a rights-based framework around intersex people with aspects that will be transferrable to the advancement of LGBT rights.

Kyrgyzstan

LGBT people in Kyrgyzstan experience ill-treatment, extortion, and discrimination by both state and non-state actors. There is widespread impunity for these abuses. On May 24, 2016, the law, order and fighting crime parliamentary committee returned Kyrgyzstan’s anti-LGBT bill, which would ban “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations,” for a repeat second reading, where it then stalled. The bill appears aimed at silencing anyone seeking to openly share information about same-sex relations in Kyrgyzstan. Following a live debate on LGBT rights on national television, Kyrgyzstan’s State Committee on National Security on June 14 summoned the editor-in-chief of Kloop.kg, an online media portal, for questioning about its coverage of the show. The television’s supervisory board also formally reprimanded its general director for airing the content. Also in June, Kyrgyzstan voted against a resolution at the UN Human Rights Council establishing the mandate of an independent expert to address violence and discrimination against LGBT people.

Latvia

According to Latvian LGBT activists, the authorities used a 2015 law on “constitutional morality education” to censor discussion about LGBT people in at least two schools in 2016.

Lebanon

Sexual relations outside of marriage—adultery and fornication—are criminalized under Lebanon’s penal code. Furthermore, article 534 of the penal code punishes “any sexual intercourse contrary to the order of nature” with up to one year in prison. In recent years, authorities conducted raids to arrest persons allegedly involved in same-sex conduct, some of whom were subjected to torture including forced anal examinations. In February 2016, a Syrian refugee, arrested by Lebanese Military Intelligence officers apparently on suspicion he was gay, was allegedly tortured while detained at Military Intelligence, Ministry of Defense, Military Police, and Jounieh police centers. In January 2017, a judge in Metn challenged the legal basis of the arrest of men for same-sex conduct, declaring that homosexuality is “not a criminal offence,” although under Lebanon’s legal system, the ruling does not create a binding precedent.

Malaysia

Discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people is pervasive in Malaysia. Article 377A of the penal code criminalizes same-sex activity between men with punishments of up to 20 years in prison and whipping. Numerous Sharia-based laws and regulations prohibiting a “man posing as a woman,” sexual relations between women, and sexual relations between men effectively criminalize LGBT people.

Both government and private actors attempted to limit expression in support of LGBT rights. In February 2017, JAKIM (the Ministry for Islamic Development) endorsed so-called “conversion therapy,” claiming that gays should seek guidance from God, “repent,” and enter into heterosexual marriages. In March, the Film Censorship Board demanded that Disney edit out four minutes of the children’s film “Beauty and the Beast” because of a “gay moment.” Disney refused to make any cuts to the film, and the board eventually backed down and allowed the unedited film to be screened in Malaysia. In May, Taylor’s University in Subang Jaya canceled a three-day Pride celebration organized by Pelangi, an LGBT rights organization. In June, the Ministry of Health, in response to strident criticism from activists and the general public, reframed the terms of a youth video competition on sexual and reproductive health, removing language and criteria that stigmatized LGBT identities in favor of language that appears to affirm them.

In February 2017 Sameera, a transgender woman, was murdered in Kuantan. In June, an 18-year-old in Penang, T. Nhaveen, died after a group of teenagers allegedly beat and raped him while taunting him with insults such as “pondan,” a derogatory Malay term for an effeminate male, a gay male, or a transgender woman.

Mexico

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Mexico City since 2010. Since then, nine states have legalized it; in 2015, the Supreme Court opened the door to recognition in all states by ruling that the definition of marriage as a union only between a man and a woman constitutes discrimination and thus violates Mexico’s Constitution. In May 2016, President Peña Nieto introduced a bill to legalize same-sex marriage, to remove sexual orientation and gender identity as barriers to adoption, and to recognize gender identity through the reissuance of birth notices, without a doctor’s involvement. Two committees in the Chamber of Deputies voted against the initiative in November.

Morocco/Western Sahara

Moroccan courts continued to jail persons for same-sex conduct under article 489 of the penal code, which prohibits “lewd or unnatural acts with an individual of the same sex.” A Beni Mellal court convicted two men of homosexuality after a group of youths on March 9 burst into the home of one and pushed the two men naked into the street, filming the assault and later posting the clip online. The two men were freed after spending one month in prison; in April, a court imposed prison terms on two of their attackers. On October 27, police in Marrakesh arrested two girls aged 16 and 17 who were reported for cuddling in a private home. They were jailed for one week and charged under article 489, then provisionally released. In December, they were acquitted.

Authorities require but often refuse to issue permits for foreign broadcast media to film in Morocco. On April 3, police detained and then expelled a crew of the French news program “Le Petit Journal” as it tried to film in a neighborhood of Beni Mellal where the abovementioned gay-bashing assault had taken place.

Nepal

In line with a 2007 Supreme Court decision and a subsequent court order, the government in 2015 began issuing passports in three genders: “male,” “female,” and “other.” Some with “other” passports have successfully traveled abroad with their travel documents recognized by foreign governments. The new constitution recognizes that citizenship is available in three genders, and protects “gender and sexual minorities” in clauses related to equality before the law and social justice. Activists remain frustrated with the lack of implementation of a Supreme Court-mandated committee recommendation that the government recognize same-sex relationships.

Netherlands

At the start of 2016, NGOs reported threats and discrimination against LGBT asylum seekers at asylum facilities, and a Dutch independent monitoring body, the Dutch Board for Protection of Human Rights, found in February that LGBT asylum seekers at a large facility face discrimination.

Nigeria

The passage of the Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act, SSMPA in January 2014, has far reaching effects on members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. The law is used to legitimize abuses against LGBT people, including mob violence, sexual abuse, unlawful arrests, torture and extortion by police. On February 13, the police arrested a homosexual couple in the federal capital for allegedly attempting to conduct a wedding. The wedding sponsors and the hotel venue owner were also arrested. The penalty for entering into a gay marriage under the SSMPA is 14 years. Ironically, former President Jonathan who defied global pressure before signing the bill into law, said belatedly in June 2016 that “with the clear knowledge that the issue of sexual orientation is still evolving, the nation may, at the appropriate time, revisit the law.”

In November 2015, the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights urged the Nigerian government to review the SSMPA in order to prohibit violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity and ensure access to HIV prevention, treatment, and care services for LGBT individuals.

Pakistan

In 2009, Pakistan’s Supreme Court called for improved police response to cases involving transgender people, and to ensure the rights of transgender people to basic education, employment, and protection. However, despite the court order, violent attacks on transgender and intersex women in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province surged in 2016, with unknown assailants frequently targeting those involved in activism. Official responses have been inadequate. Human rights groups in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have recorded dozens of threats to, and attacks on, people and property, including abuses while in police custody. In September 2016, the National Commission for Human Rights called on the government to investigate the attacks, and in 2016 and 2017 local governments and parliament hearings reflected an increased amount of attention to the plight of transgender women—including a unanimous resolution in the Khyber Pakhdunkhwa assembly calling for voting rights for transgender people.

Papua New Guinea

The PNG criminal code outlaws sex “against the order of nature,” which has been interpreted to apply to consensual same-sex acts, and is punishable by up to 14 years’ imprisonment. Gay asylum seekers on Manus Island have reported being shunned, sexually abused, or assaulted by other asylum seekers.

In May, during the periodic review of PNG’s human rights record at the UN Human Rights Council, countries made more than 150 recommendations on sues including ratification of international treaties, establishing a national human rights commission, promoting gender equality, addressing domestic violence and sorcery-related violence, decriminalizing consensual same-sex relations, and abolishing or placing a moratorium on the death penalty. In September, PNG responded that it would ratify all core human rights treaties “on the basis of priorities” and that, while there are challenges to implementing reforms, it is committed to establishing a human rights commission, improving gender equality, and addressing domestic violence and sorcery-related violence. It also noted, however, that “LGBT is currently not a priority of the Government” and that the “death penalty is in our national law, however despite this, the current government directive is not to implement until further directions are issued.”

Peru

In March 2015, Congress rejected a bill to recognize civil unions for same-sex couples. In September 2016, a Congressional supporter of President Kuczynski announced that he would introduce a new legislative proposal to recognize same-sex civil unions.

People in Peru are required to appear before a judge in order to revise the gender noted on their identification documents. In an August 2016 report, the human rights ombudsman noted that courts had rejected most of these requests, often applying inconsistent criteria.

Philippines

The House of Representatives began consideration of House Bill 267, the “Anti SOGI (Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity) Discrimination Act” in June 2016. If approved, it will criminalize discrimination in the employment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals, and prohibit schools from refusing to register or expelling students on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The Senate has introduced companion legislation, Senate Bill No. 935, otherwise known as the Anti-Discrimination Bill (ADB), which had its first hearing in August. House Bill 267 will also sensitize police and law enforcement officers on LGBT issues and train them to attend to complaints. These initiatives are essential given that LGBT rights advocacy groups have warned that hate crimes against LGBT people are on the rise and that the Philippines has recorded the highest number of murders of transgender individuals in Southeast Asia since 2008. The bill would also prohibit anti-LGBT discrimination in access to health care.

Russia

Authorities continued to implement discriminatory policies and laws against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. In March, police found journalist and theater critic Dmitry Tsilikin dead in his St. Petersburg apartment from stab wounds. The perpetrator, arrested a week later, confessed that he planned to blackmail Tsilikin about his homosexuality, but killed him during a confrontation. The police did not categorize the killing as a hate crime. In January, a court in Murmansk, northwestern Russia, found LGBT activist Sergei Alekseenko guilty of violating the discriminatory “gay propaganda” law which prohibits allowing children access to positive information about LGBT relationships. The court called several publications on the website of an LGBT organization formerly run by Alekseenko “gay propaganda” and fined him 100,000 rubles (US$1,300). Authorities continued legal action against Deti-404, an online support group for LGBT children. In April, a court in the Siberian town of Barnaul ruled to ban the website. As of November, Deti 404’s website remained blocked. In September, a court in Siberia ruled to block BlueSystem.ru, a highly popular LGBT news site. As of November, the site was blocked.

In February 2017 and stretching through at least the first week in April, law enforcement and security officials in Russia’s Chechen Republic launched an unprecedented anti-gay purge. They rounded up dozens of men on suspicion of being gay, held them in unofficial detention facilities for days, humiliated, starved, and tortured them. They forcibly disappeared some of the men. Others were returned to their families barely alive from beatings. Their captors exposed them to their families as gay and encouraged their relatives to carry out so-called “honor killings.” Although Chechnya’s leader, Ramzan Kadyrov has denied the round-ups, there is evidence that high-level officials in Chechnya sanctioned them. Russia’s federal government pledged to investigate, but intense and well-founded fear of official retaliation and honor killings, and overwhelming stigma will prevent many victims from coming forward.

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia has no written laws concerning sexual orientation or gender identity, but judges use principles of uncodified Islamic law to sanction people suspected of committing sexual relations outside marriage, including adultery, extramarital and homosexual sex, or other “immoral” acts. If such activity occurs online, judges and prosecutors utilize vague provisions of the country’s anti-cybercrime law that criminalize online activity impinging on “public order, religious values, public morals, and privacy.” In February 2016, the Saudi Gazette reported that the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution is considering requesting the death penalty for anyone “using social media to solicit homosexual acts.”

In February 2017, Saudi police arrested 35 Pakistani citizens, some of whom were transgender women. One of them died in detention. Her family said her body bore signs of torture, while the Saudi authorities said she had died of a heart attack.

Serbia (Kosovo)

Attacks and harassment of human rights defenders continued. According to local LGBT and human rights organizations, the majority of attacks and threats against members of the LGBT community go unreported with only known LGBT activists filing complaints. In June, in Vojvodina in Northeast Serbia, an LGBT activist was attacked and kicked in the head by four unidentified perpetrators. No one had been prosecuted at time of writing. In August, LGBT activist Boban Stojanovic, one of the Belgrade Pride organizers, was punched and called a “fag” in downtown Belgrade by two unidentified men. Police were investigating at time of writing. Hundreds of police officers deployed in Belgrade to protect the LGBT Pride march in September, which occurred without violence. This was a marked improvement from previous years when protesters attacked the parade, or the government had cancelled the event citing security concerns instead of providing adequate security.

The Kosovo Constitution protects against sexual orientation-based discrimination and a 2015 anti-discrimination law enumerates protections for both sexual orientation and gender identity; however, implementation remains weak.

Singapore

The rights of Singapore’s LGBT community are severely restricted. Sexual relations between two male persons remains a criminal offense, and there are no legal protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The Media Development Authority effectively prohibits all positive depictions of LGBT lives on television or radio. The annual Pink Dot Festival in support of LGBT rights celebrated its eighth year in Hong Lim Park in June 2016, supported by the sponsorship of corporations including Google, Barclays, J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, BP, Bloomberg, Twitter, Apple, and Facebook. A few days after the event, the Ministry of Home Affairs warned multinational companies to stop funding the event, saying such support constitutes “foreign interference” with domestic affairs. In October, the Ministry of Home Affairs announced that, under newly promulgated rules, any entity that is not incorporated in Singapore and does not have a majority of Singapore citizens on its board is now required to apply for a permit to sponsor an event in Hong Lim Park.

Associations of more than 10 people are required to register with the government, and the Registrar of Societies has broad authority to deny registration if he determines the group could be “prejudicial to public peace, welfare or good order.” The Registrar of Societies has refused to allow any lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transsexual (LGBT) organization to register as a society on the ground that “it is contrary to the public interest to grant legitimacy to the promotion of homosexual activities or viewpoints.”

All films and videos shown in Singapore must be pre-approved by the Board of Film Censors. Theater productions must also obtain a license under the Public Entertainment and Meetings Act, and to do so must submit their scripts for approval. In June 2016, a production of “Les Miserables” was forced to delete a scene containing a same-sex kiss.

South Africa

South Africa has a progressive constitution that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and protects the human rights of LGBTI people. The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development has taken significant steps to improve coordination between government and civil society in combatting violence (including rape and murder) against lesbians and transgender men. On September 6, Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba announced that due to widespread homophobic attitudes within South African society, and to protect the rights of LGBTI people, homophobic US pastor Steven Anderson and members of his church were banned from entering the country because they promote hate speech and advocate social violence. He said constitutional and legislative guarantees, including the rights of LGBTI persons, must be respected by all. Domestic LGBTI groups lauded the decision. In June 2017, at the 8th South African AIDS Conference, the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) launched the national HIV framework for LGBTI people. South Africa is the first country in the world to launch an HIV framework specifically for LGBT people as part of its national strategic plan. The objective is to “reverse the burden of disease from HIV, STIs and TB and to promote a rights and evidence-based environment for LGBTI people in South Africa.”

Some of South Africa’s votes at the United Nations were contrary to the country’s stated human rights principles. For example, in July, South Africa voted against a UN Human Rights Council resolution on the protection of human rights on the internet and abstained on a key HRC vote to appoint an independent expert on sexual orientation and gender identity. The abstention went against the country’s strong constitutional protections and domestic laws around sexual orientation and gender identity. But on November 21, in the UN General Assembly committee, South Africa voted to allow Vitit Muntabhorn, the newly appointed UN expert on sexual orientation and gender identity, to continue his work. The vote was taken after the African Group put forward a resolution to stop the operations of the UN expert who was appointed in September by the Human Rights Council.

Sri Lanka

State and non-state discrimination and abuses against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) population persist. Sections 365 and 365A of the Sri Lankan Penal Code prohibit “carnal knowledge against the order of nature” and “gross indecency,” commonly understood in Sri Lanka to criminalize all same-sex relations between consenting adults. Sri Lankan law does not specifically criminalize transgender or intersex people. But no laws ensure that their rights are protected, and police have used several criminal offenses and regulations to target LGBTI people, particularly transgender women and men who have sex with men (MSM) involved in sex work. These include a law against “cheat[ing] by personation,” and the vaguely worded Vagrants’ Ordinance, which prohibits soliciting or committing acts of “gross indecency,” or being “incorrigible rogues” procuring “illicit or unnatural intercourse.” Some trans women and MSM said that repeated harassment by police, including instances of arbitrary detention and mistreatment, had eroded their trust in Sri Lankan authorities, and made it unlikely that they would report a crime. Several people also reported discriminatory treatment at the hands of medical authorities, leading many transgender people to self-medicate rather than seeking professional assistance.

Syria

News reports in 2016 indicate that ISIS continues to execute men accused of homosexuality. In one reported case from Deir al-Zour governorate, a 15-year-old boy was thrown from a building in January 2016 after he was accused of being gay. At least 25 men have been murdered by ISIS in Syria on suspicion of homosexuality or for sodomy, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Tanzania

Tanzanian law criminalizes consensual sexual conduct between adult males, with a penalty of 30 years to life in prison, one of the most severe punishments for same-sex intimacy in the world. Zanzibar has slightly different laws but criminalizes both male homosexual conduct and lesbianism. The laws are rarely applied, but police and other authorities use them as a pretext to extort, abuse and marginalize LGBTI people. 

Under the government of John Magufuli, Tanzania has seen an unprecedented crackdown on LGBT people. The government has shut down HIV outreach services and drop-in centers targeting men who have sex with men (MSM); banned the import of water-based lubricants, an important HIV prevention tool; and threatened to shut down LGBT organizations. Police in Zanzibar arrested nine young men, charged them with homosexual conduct, and subjected them to forced anal examinations at a government hospital in December 2016. They were released on bail, but the cases remain open. Another young man was arrested in Dar es Salaam in March 2017, and was also subjected to a forced anal exam. In June 2017, President Magufuli publicly condemned same-sex relationships.

Tunisia

The penal code punishes consensual same-sex conduct with up to three years in prison. Anal testing is used as the main evidence in order to convict men for homosexuality. In two high-profile cases in 2015, at least seven young men were arrested and subjected to anal examinations by forensic doctors, whose reports were used as evidence to convict them of sodomy and imprison them, even though it is well-documented that such exams lack medical value. On appeal, their sentences were reduced to two months in the first case, and one month in the second.

Tunisia has thus far been unwilling to consider decriminalization of consensual same-sex conduct but, in its 2017 UPR review, accepted a recommendation to end forced anal examinations. This positive development followed months of advocacy from Tunisian and international human rights groups. The United Nations Committee against Torture, in its 2016 evaluation of Tunisia, condemned the use of anal examinations as to prove homosexual conduct. Shortly before the UPR review, the national medical council issued a circular calling on medical personnel to stop conducting anal examinations without consent.

Turkey

Authorities frequently impose arbitrary bans on public assemblies and violently disperse peaceful demonstrations. For the second year running, the Istanbul governor’s office banned the annual Istanbul Gay and Trans Pride marches in June 2016, citing concerns about security threats and public order.

Turkmenistan

Under Turkmen law homosexual conduct is punishable by up to two years in prison. Widespread prejudice leads to homosexuality being treated as a disease, including by medical institutions and judicial authorities. Law enforcement officials and medical personnel subject persons detained and charged with sodomy to forced anal examinations, with the purported objective of finding “proof” of homosexual conduct.

Uganda

After nine years, the Constitutional Court finally ruled in November on a challenge to a limitation on the mandate of the Equal Opportunities Commission, which barred it from investigating any matter involving behavior “considered to be immoral and socially harmful, or unacceptable by the majority of the cultural and social communities in Uganda.” The judges determined the limitation was unconstitutional and violated the right to a fair hearing. Perversely, this provision had meant that the very mechanism designed to protect people from discrimination could blatantly discriminate against women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people, sex workers, and anyone else who might not have been perceived to reflect the views of the majority.

Same-sex conduct remains criminalized under Uganda’s colonial-era law, which prohibits “carnal knowledge” among people of the same sex. The new NGO law raises concerns about the criminalization of legitimate advocacy on the rights of LGBTI people. In August, police unlawfully raided a peaceful pageant that was part of Gay Pride celebrations in Kampala. Police locked the venue’s gates, arrested activists, and beat and humiliated hundreds of people, violating rights to association and assembly. Police continue to carry out forced anal examinations on men and transgender women accused of consensual same-sex conduct. These examinations lack evidentiary value and are a form of cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment that may amount to torture.

Ukraine

Since 2014, the government has introduced several progressive policies supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, but anti-LGBT sentiment remains strong among high-level government officials and the public. In March 2016, about 200 anti-gay, far-right supporters attacked a venue in Lviv hosting a LGBT equality festival, eventually causing the event to be cancelled. The Kyiv LGBT Pride march held in June took place without the violence against participants that had marred it in previous years. Ultra-nationalist groups had threatened to make the march a “bloody mess.” Around 6,000 police officers protected the 1,500 march participants. The first LGBT Pride march took place in Odesa in August. Local authorities initially attempted to ban it, but relented when organizers changed the route. Police arrested four ultra-nationalists who attempted to disrupt the event. A new draft of the amended labor code does not include an anti-discrimination provision that would protect LGBT people in the workplace.

United Arab Emirates

The UAE’s penal code does not explicitly prohibit homosexuality. However, article 356 of the penal code criminalizes (but does not define) “indecency,” and provid

I just came from Gambia. I must say I have never had such respect for gay people until I saw a couple of gay Gambians at Romano in Bakau. These guys are openly gay and effeminate and couldn't care who knows inspite of the local anti gay laws and the stupid president's gay death threats. Romano plays host to a live band every Sunday night which goes on til 3.30 am Monday morning. Although the weekly event is not necessarily a gay event/venue, this event does attract some gay Gambians. These guys are good "mbalax" dancers. It is customary to give them a few Dalasis (the local currency) if you appreciate their artistry. You don't have to though. You can simply watch then walk up to them to congratulate them thereby striking a conversation. Ensure any express of interest is done discreetly when they are alone or away from their female friends. Interestingly, some of these guys were arrested few years ago but it still has not stopped them expressing themselves. Some of them are well known homosexuals.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above. Primary source countries are Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Benin. Trafficking of Gambian boys to Senegal for forced begging and Senegalese boys to The Gambia for the same purpose is particularly prevalent. Gambian women and girls are trafficked to Senegal for domestic servitude, and possibly for sexual exploitation. Gambian women and children may be trafficked to Europe through trafficking schemes disguised as migrant smuggling. Reports in the last two years of Gambian, Senegalese, and nationals of other neighboring countries being transported from The Gambia to Spain by boat appear to be predominantly cases of smuggling rather than trafficking. - U.S. State Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2008 [

Gambia plans to sell planes recovered from Jammeh  
Gambia to sell four planes recovered from former leader
The Gambia government has resolved to sell four aircraft obtained at the time of the government of former President Yahya Jammeh, Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs, Mr. Amadou Sanneh, has said.
The Minister made the announcement to lawmakers, when he presented the revised 2017 draft estimates of revenue and expenditure (the revised national budget) of the Gambia government, to the National Assembly in Banjul.
The planes, which are believed to be parked at Banjul International Airport, and four landed properties situated in the Tourism Development Area, would be sold before the end of this year.
It is expected they assets would generate D471 million (more than $10 million) which would be put in state coffers to address the economic challenges the new government inherited from Jammeh’s 22-year rule.
There is a need to revise the budget by reducing the estimated expenditure in the original 2017 budget prepared in 2016 by the former government, and the new government will manage with the funds which become available up to the end of this year, Sanneh further told the country’s lawmakers.
Consequently, Minister Sanneh called for financial discipline in the public sector, citing the civil servants’ use of government vehicles, for example, as the state needs to cut down on fuel supply expenditure, according to his statement.
Meanwhile, he went on, the government through the Finance Ministry in Banjul has asked for help from the Stolen Assets Recovery Unit of the World Bank, to recover the allegedly stolen wealth under the former government.
Ex-President Jammeh was accused of withdrawing millions of dollars from the state coffers, and has since left the country for Equatorial Guinea where he is now living in exile.
The new government under President Adama Barrow has since frozen all his known assets, including 131 landed properties dotted throughout the country, as investigations into his alleged criminal and economic crimes continue.

          Re: Override enroll course page   

by Melqui Chaves.  

Hi Mary!

Thanks for the answer!


Sorry, i've totaly forget to say what im using. D:

The version is 3.3 and i'm building a theme that is child of Boost theme.


So, i have this situation that i want to make changes into the page where the user enrol himself into a course or redirect this unnenrolled user to another page that will show the things that i want.


I want to make this because i need to show more information about the course to the user before he enroll himself. Another reason it's because we have a LOT of subscription methods into the course! So there's a lot of fields that arent relevants for the user to enrol, instead i'll put just one field where the user writes his subscription key.


Actualy, i've been able to change the page, but i've accomplished this using obscure things that i can regret later.
Basically, i know that "columns2.php" it's responsable to output the main content that renderers the enrolpage. So, in coluns2.mustache i have:

<section id="region-main" {{#hasblocks}}class="has-blocks"{{/hasblocks}}>
     <div class="card card-block">
         {{#hasregionmainsettingsmenu}}
              <div class="region_main_settings_menu_proxy"></div>
         {{/hasregionmainsettingsmenu}}
         {{{ output.course_content_header }}}
         {{{ output.main_content }}}
         {{{ output.course_content_footer }}}
     </div>
</section>


output.main_content - It's responsable to show the content of the enrolpage and everything else. So i did this in columns2.php:

if($PAGE->url->get_path() == '/enrol/index.php'){
    echo $OUTPUT->render_from_template('theme_thoth/enrol', $templatecontext);
}else{
    echo $OUTPUT->render_from_template('theme_thoth/columns2', $templatecontext);
}


So, if i'm in /enrol/index.php  url, then this will take enrol.mustache has template.
This didn't solve my situation, because in "enrol.mustache" it's necessary to use "output.main_content" or the page don't renders. So, i did this:


<section id="region-main" {{#hasblocks}}class="has-blocks"{{/hasblocks}}>
     <div class="card card-block">
         {{#hasregionmainsettingsmenu}}
              <div class="region_main_settings_menu_proxy"></div>
         {{/hasregionmainsettingsmenu}}
         {{{ output.course_content_header }}}
         <!-- {{{ output.main_content }}} -->
         {{{ output.course_content_footer }}}
     </div>
</section>


You see, now i can put wharever i want into the enrol page, but you also can see my concerns with dark magic, those kind off stuff allways comes with a price later. Here in Brazil we call this kind of stuff of "Gambiarra". And if you do like a laugh, i sugest search of this on google images.

I wan't to know if there's a different solution for this. Because what i've done doesn't appeart to be the correct way...

Thanks and sorry if i'm wasn't clear or much objective!

          Re: Gambians against Government`s anti-gay stance   
In that case keep your gay sex tourism visits to African countries where gayness is either legal or tolerated... South Africa, Burkina Faso and Togo are the only countries I know where gayness is either legal or tolerated... Please let us know of others
          Re: gambia   
Agree with you regarding Gambia,you should also include other Islamic countries in Africa such as Senegal,Mali,Mauritania,Sudan. These are places to be avoided at all costs,they are extremely intolerant of gays,and risk your life,just for a few minutes of fun. No amount of money or any other incentive would ever lure me to visit such barbaric countries.
          Re: Sex tourism in Gambia...   
From www gvnet.com I transfer the fllowing passage.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above. Primary source countries are Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Benin. Trafficking of Gambian boys to Senegal for forced begging and Senegalese boys to The Gambia for the same purpose is particularly prevalent. Gambian women and girls are trafficked to Senegal for domestic servitude, and possibly for sexual exploitation. Gambian women and children may be trafficked to Europe through trafficking schemes disguised as migrant smuggling. Reports in the last two years of Gambian, Senegalese, and nationals of other neighboring countries being transported from The Gambia to Spain by boat appear to be predominantly cases of smuggling rather than trafficking. - U.S. State Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2008 [

          Rammy Aopoa Kifaa Cha Gambia   
Rammy Gallis

STAA wa filamu Bongo, Rammy Gallis amenasa kifaa kipya kutoka nchini Gambia ambaye naye ni msanii wa filamu, Princess Shyngle na kusema kuwa mwanadada huyo ndiye anayemkonga nyoyo kwa sasa japo hapendi kumuuzisha sura.
Akipiga stori na Star Mix baada ya meseji za mapenzi akichati na mwanadada huyo kunaswa na paparazi wetu, msanii huyo alifunguka kuwa, yupo kwenye uhusiano na mlimbwende huyo kwa muda sasa na kwamba miongoni mwa vitu vilivyomvutia kwake ni pamoja na figa matata aliyonayo.

Princess Shyngle

“Nilikutana na Princess nilipoenda kufanya filamu Nigeria, kwa kuwa yeye ni Mgambia lakini makazi yake makubwa ni Nigeria, nampenda sana naamini yeye ndiye tulizo la moyo wangu, mapenzi ya Kibongo yanitue kwa sasa,” alisema.

          6 Remaja Putri Tim Robotik Afghanistan Ditolak Masuk AS   

Enam remaja putri asal Afghanistan ditolak visa masuk ke Amerika Serikat. Padahal mereka akan menjadi bagian dari kompetisi internasional robotik di Washington DC. Meski ditolak, mereka diperbolehkan mengirim robot pemilah bola ciptaannya.

Para penemu muda itu menangis karena tak bisa bersama mesin mereka di First Global Challange, sebuah kompetisi robotik yang digelar di Washingto D.C. Ini adalah kontes tahunan bagi siswa sekolah menengah atas di seluruh dunia.

Dikutip dari The Independent pada Minggu (2/7/2017), keenam remaja itu telah dua kali berjalan kaki sejauh 800 km dari Herat, sebuah kota di Afghanistan barat, ke kedutaan Amerika di Kabul untuk mengajukan visa perjalanan satu minggu.

Namun usaha mereka terbukti sia-sia karena pejabat AS menolak permohonan mereka menyusul serangkaian wawancara.

Bos teknologi wanita pertama di Afghanistan, Roya Mahboob, yang mendirikan perusahaan perangkat lunak Citadel, mengorganisir tim all-girl tersebut dan mengatakan bahwa mereka "menangis sepanjang hari" setelah visa mereka ditolak.

Dia mengatakan kepada Forbes, "Ini adalah pesan yang sangat penting bagi masyarakat kita. Robotik sangat, sangat baru di Afghanistan."

Para remaja putri tersebut masih mengerjakan robot pemilah bola yang akan mereka kirim untuk bersaing dengan 163 mesin lain pada Tantangan Pertama di bulan Juli, dan akan muncul di acara tersebut melalui link video dari Herat.

Mahasiswa pascasarjana dari Carnegie Mellon University di Pennsylvania membantu siswa memprogram robot mereka, namun tim tersebut harus menunggu selama berbulan-bulan sementara petugas bea cukai memeriksa bahan baku dari alat mereka di tengah kekhawatiran bahwa ISIS dapat menggunakan robot untuk melakukan teror di seluruh wilayah tersebut.

Salah satu anggota tim, Fatemah 14 tahun, mengatakan kepada Forbes, "Kami ingin menunjukkan ke dunia bahwa kami bisa, kami hanya butuh kesempatan."

Presiden penyelanggara First Global, Joe Sestak mengatakan para remaja putrii itu adalah "perempuan muda yang luar biasa berani." Sestak kecewa mereka tak bisa masuk AS.

Selain Afghanistan, tim Gambia juga ditolak visanya. Sementara dari Iran, Irak, dan Sudan diperbolehkan masuk. Padahal tiga negara itu termasuk salah satu dari 6 negara muslim yang memiliki prasyarat ketat masuk AS sesuai dengan peraturan imigran baru ala Donald Trump.

Sementara itu, Departemen Luar Negeri AS mencatat, hanya 32 visa bisnis yang diperbolehkan masuk AS dari Afghanistan pada bulan April. Jauh lebih sedikit dibanding Irak (132) dan Pakistan (1.492) di bulan yang sama.

Ditolaknya visa remaja putri AS pun menuai kritikan. Salah satunya datang dari Jonathan Blanks, komentator dan peneliti dari Cato Insititute.

Blanks secara satir berkicau dalam Twitter-nya, "Saya merasa lebih aman sekarang karena kami telah menolak kesempatan seumur hidup sekelompok remaja putri masuk AS. Di mana negara mereka telah kita bom semenjak mereka lahir."

Deplu AS tidak bisa berkomentar terkait penolakan visa karena dianggap rahasia.

HeroRats: "If people step on landmines, they will get hurt, but the HeroRats are too small to press the button that explodes the bomb. Then people can dig up the landmine without it exploding and no one gets hurt." (PDF document). The associated Twitter account: @HeroRATs. They tweet at celebrities for the LOLs and to raise awareness, as well as interacting with fellow Tweeters. More about 'giant pouched rats,' or Gambian rats, and how training the rats to detect landmines is done. (The rats also can be trained to detect tuberculosis; how it's done.) apopo website; three selections from the FAQ:
"Question: What does APOPO mean?" Answer: "APOPO is an acronym from Dutch which stands for Anti-Persoonsmijnen Ontmijnende Product Ontwikkeling, or in English, Anti-Personnel Landmines Detection Product Development." Question: "How may rats to do you have?" Answer: "In October 2014 we had 81 rats in various stages of training for landmine detection and 5 in training to become TB detection rats. The TB-lab in Morogoro had 36 HeroRATs at work. At our headquarters in Morogoro, 29 rats were involved in the breeding program. In Angola, we had 20 HeroRATs operational and 76 rats were working in landmine detection operations in Mozambique. In the TB lab in Maputo, there were 9 rats working.​" Question: "Who came up with the idea?" ​Answer: "​It was Bart Weetjens, our founder, who came up with the idea. Bart kept pet rats as a child. During his studies, he was carrying out an analysis of the landmine problem in Sub Saharan Africa and realized that landmine clearance was dangerous and costly. He had recently come across an article about gerbils and their ability to detect explosives in lab conditions, and when he thought back to the sense of smell of his pet rats, and their trainability, he put two and two together et voilà. He consulted with Professor Ron Verhagen, a rodent expert at the University of Antwerp, who recommended the giant African pouched rat (Cricetomys gambianus) because of its long lifespan and adaptation to the harsh conditions in Africa.​"​
