Peace and Dignity Journeys honor Indigenous peoples

first_imgMany people gathered in beautiful Chicano Park in San Diego, Calif., awaiting the arrival of the Peace and Dignity Journey runners on July 23. These journeys are spiritual runs which start in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, and Chickaloon, Alaska. Runners then travel for six months through hundreds of Indigenous communities, joining in their traditions. The journeys began in 1992 and take place every four years.The 2016 theme is running for the “Seeds of Our Future” — the seeds planted in the ground and the seeds that are the future of communities.The Border Tributary Route runners journeyed through Tijuana, Mexico, and San Ysidros’ militarized borders between Mexico and the U.S. Then the runners made several stops in San Diego County, including in Chula Vista, National City, Logan Heights and Barrio Logan. Their route joined the main route and runners at the Centro Cultural de la Raza and World Beat Center in Balboa Park. United, all runners journeyed to Chicano Park for the Closing Circle and community celebration.Runners were scheduled to arrive at 6 p.m. A little after 5 p.m., word circulated that they were just leaving Balboa Park and would be late. San Diego Peace and Dignity organizers were busy preparing delicious food, including fresh fruits and vegetables donated by the community. On the stage the Danza Azteca Dancers and Drummers were preparing spiritually for the Closing Circle ceremony, while other attendees anxiously waited. First came the motorcycle escort that signaled the runners were in sight, and then the runners appeared carrying a banner that read “Honoring the Seeds.”The Circle ceremony at Chicano Park was at times emotional. There were prayers for the safety of runners who were traveling on other routes, for those who had made it to this point during the week’s extreme heat and for runners who could not make it due to the heat or other unforeseen reasons. There were also prayers for the ancestors, those who came before us, and the future, those who will follow us.The purpose of the Journeys is to unite Indigenous peoples with all peoples. At the Circle’s closing, all the runners laid down their staffs that represent prayers collected from all the communities, groups and individuals runners met during the journey. These staffs will be carried by runners for the duration of their journey. All runners will come together at the Kuna Nation in Panama City, Panama, where the many Indigenous nations from North and South America will unite.The runners meet in the center of the two continents to fulfill the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor. It states that then all Indigenous Peoples in the Western Hemisphere shall be reunited spiritually in order to “heal our nations so we can begin to work toward a better future for our children and generations to come.”On July 27, runners on the Calipatria Tributary Route are scheduled to journey to Calipatria State Prison and arrive by 1:30 a.m. They are “Running for Justice for Orlando Watley and all Political Prisoners.” Watley, a Chickasaw Native and Bantu African from Corcoran, Calif., was charged with crimes he did not commit and has been held captive for 23 years.For more information, see Facebook Peace and Dignity Journeys 2016 @PDJ2016.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Pre-Law Association for Marginalized Students was launched by sophomores Myah McNair, Cristian Diaz and Julieta Martinez Gonzalez in response to problems they saw the campus facing. “We noticed a lack of diversity within the Pre-Law Society that was already on campus,” said McNair. Their goal is to help students create connections with people who look like them and who are in or will soon be in the field of law.“As an organization, we want to provide a safe space for Black, Indigenous and other students of color (BIPOC) whose intention is to attend law school by expanding the network, creating study and discussion spaces, cultivating a community of driven leaders to diversify the field of law, and providing support to make law school a reality for marginalized groups,” said McNair. An aim for mentorship The founders of the organization wish to provide mentorship, community service events, classes on networking and programs that are specific to minority individuals interested in law school.“We are also working on getting free LSAT materials for everyone that is going to be involved in the organization,” said McNair. Although the organization is in its beginning stages, it is interested in bringing in faculty members to host events regarding law and marginalized groups. McNair is also interested in collaborating with different offices on campus, such as Inclusiveness and Intercultural Services (IIS) and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. “We hope that this organization will be a tool to develop students and aim to serve every one of our members,” McNair said. “Ranging from study resources and practice material to providing students with web support, we hope to create the nurturing environment they desperately need.” TCU’s other active Pre-Law Society says they think the organization is a great idea. “We’ve long had little participation from our pre-law students who represent marginalized communities in the legal profession and I realize they are here among us,” said Ralph Carter, campus advisor for the Pre-Law Society. If students want to join this organization, they can go to TCU Engage and search “Pre-Law Association for Marginalized Students” and request to join. Their first general body meeting will be Friday, April 16, at 6:00 p.m..

Eight-month jail sentence for message posted on Facebook

first_img to go further News News December 26, 2019 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the eight-month jail sentence that a Tunis court has imposed on 69-year-old academic and human rights activist Khedija Arfaoui for posting a message on the social networking website Facebook in May referring to widespread rumours about children being kidnapped in Tunisia for their organs.She was convicted on 4 July of “disturbing public order” under article 121 of the criminal code, which states that “anyone stirring up rebellion by means of speeches in public places or meetings, or placards, posters or written texts is punishable as if they had participated in the rebellion.”“This conviction has no legal basis,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Tunisia has no Internet laws and this is the first time a Tunisian court has issued a decision concerning a Facebook post. All Arfaoui did was post an already-existing message. She was in no way responsible for starting the rumour. The authorities are just using her as a scapegoat. Her conviction must be quashed immediately.”Arfaoui had no idea she had been charged until she read in the newspapers on 31 May that her trial was due to begin on 6 June, and she got no formal notification until 5 June. She was represented by lawyers at a second hearing, held on 27 June, but they were not allowed to see the prosecution case file. She and her lawyers did not know that a verdict and sentence had been issued until they read it in the newspapers on 5 July.One of her lawyers said: “This case cannot be prosecuted because it is not covered by any law. If there is no law, there can be no crime. This conviction is senseless. The trail was staged in order to put a stop to the rumour.”Under article 121 of the Tunisian criminal code, disturbing public order is punishable by six months to five years in prison and a fine of 120 to 1,200 dinars (72 to 720 euros). It forbids the distribution, sale or display, or possession with a view to distribution, sale or display, of leaflets, newsletters or stickers of foreign or national origin liable to disturb public order or decency.Article 21 applies to public spaces whereas Facebook is regarded as a private space. The indictment itself violates the confidentiality of correspondence. This is guaranteed by article 9 of the constitution, which says: “Domestic inviolability, the confidentiality of correspondence and the protection of personal data are guaranteed, except in particular cases specified in the law.”Facebook is very popular with Tunisians aged between 15 and 25. Access was blocked on 24 August 2008 but the ensuing outcry forced President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali to restore access nine days later.Arfaoui’s lawyers will try to get the jail sentence suspended on appeal. No date has so far been set for the appeal hearing. Arfaoui teaches English, American civilisation and human rights at La Manouba University, near Tunis.
