• Enter Pyongyang from JT Singh on Vimeo.

    Rob Whitworth: an amazing artist, King of post-production and creator of the flow-motion technique and the one who makes you travel the world in an astonishing way.

    Let’s travel Pyongyang, North Korea.
     

    Blending time-lapse photography, acceleration and slow motion, HD and digital animation, they have produced a cutting‐edge panorama of a city hardly known, but one emerging on the visitor’s landscape as North Korea’s opening unfolds.

    North Korea was the last country seemingly immune to change—but no longer. Recent years have witnessed mobile phone penetration, a surge in tourists, and even a marathon. Numerous special economic zones have been launched in cooperation with China, Russia, and South Korea, with railways planned linking all countries in the region.
    “Enter Pyongyang” captures not just the city, but this dynamism and sense of potential.

    The infamous traffic ladies and subway guards stand stiff and sentinel—but today they share a smile too. The more North Koreans one meets, the more one sees an organic society that wants to be a normal country. If you travel there not to judge but to appreciate, you will come away with a better understanding of how challenging national transformation can be.

    Alors que la machine à tuer israélienne sème la terreur et la mort dans le peuple palestinien avec l’aide du gouvernement étasunien et des ses principaux alliés arabes, dont le moindre n’est pas le clan saoudien avec ses 20 000 princes et princesses, en Égypte une énorme campagne de haine est orchestrée tant officieusement qu’officiellement.

  • Al Quds Jerusalem: Nettoyage ethnique et négation de l'identité palestinienne. Al Quds, Jérusalem est la cible principale du nettoyage ethnique: familles palestiniennes expulsées, démolition de maisons, encerclement des quartiers arabes par les colonies juives, construction du tramway de l'Apartheid, excavations sous la mosquée Al Aqsa...

    Seed, Bija in Sanskrit, Shido in Japanese, Zhangzi in Chinese, Semi in Italian, Semilla in Spanish, Semence in French, Der Saat in German, is the source of life and the first link in the food chain. Control over seed means a control over our lives, our food and our freedom.

    Corporations like Monsanto have created a seed emergency, a seed emergency through patents on seeds, seed monopolies, biopiracy genetic engineering and creation of non renewable sterile seeds. Seed monopolies have pushed 250,000 farmers to commit suicide in India. After contaminating farmer’s seeds and crops, Monsanto sues farmers “for stealing their gene”, putting the polluter pays principle on its head, and making it the polluter gets paid principle.

    The multidimensional emergency created by patents on seeds and GMOs needs a global collective response. Join the Global campaign on Seed Freedom to stop the corporate hijack of seed and with it, the hijack of our freedom and our future.

    (Brussels 10 December) 10 December is human rights day. We celebrate and remember the struggle of many for human rights and dignity.  The European Citizens’ Initiative “Water is a human right!” (www.right2water.eu) is proud to be part of that struggle that unites many on our planet. It has engaged hundred thousands in Europe to demand that the European Commission takes steps to implement the right to water as adopted by the UN in 2010.

    The ECI collected more then 1.85 million signatures after a long campaign that started in May 2012 and submitted these to the national authorities in September 2013. As the first ECI we submitted the signatures to the national authorities for validation.

     “It is a great satisfaction to the supporters of the ECI that we can now, on human rights day, announce that we have the certified minimum number of signatures required says Jan Willem Goudriaan of the citizens committee. “The ball now moves in the Court of the European Commission to listen to the voice of people and propose legislation to implement the human right to water and sanitation in European law”.

    While not all results are back yet, based on the certificates received from the national authorities the ECI has collected more than 1 million valid signatures and passed the minimum threshold in more than 7 countries (Spain, Italy, Luxembourg, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, Greece, Lithuania and Finland) countries. When all the certificates are back we will submit our demands officially to the European Commission. So far we have over 1.5 million valid signatures.

    The demands of the ECI “right2water” are:

    ·For the EU to recognise the UN right to water and sanitation into EU law

    ·Not to liberalise water services in the EU

    ·To contribute to achieving access to water and sanitation for all across the world

    According to the World Health Organization, 780 million people lack access to drinking water, including in Europe. The European Environmental Agency stated in 2012 that more than 50% of the rural population in 10 EU countries have no access to improved water or sanitation. This has a direct impact on their health.  

    We have used the ECI campaign as a tool to commit to the human right to water and sanitation. It is a tool to change the mind-set in the European Commission from a market-based approach with the focus on competition to a rights-based approach with the focus on public services. It aims to achieve universal (global) access to water and sanitation and to safeguard the limited public water resources for future generations.

    Today, on human rights day, we think we have made a big step to bring the realisation of the right to water and sanitation closer to all the people whose rights are not fulfilled yet and a big step in defence of those who see their rights threatened by corporate interests. We also made a major advancement towards more participation of citizens in EU decision-making. The European Commission will give its answer on how and what it will do in three months.
