Journalists barred from anti-nuclear protest coverage

first_img3人のフリーランスは「フリーランス連絡会」に所属。同連絡会は2011年10月、政府と東京電力の共同記者会見に参加を認められたフリーランスで結成し、フリーランスの権利を求めている。フリーランス記者は、毎週金曜日の反原発デモの様子を撮影しようと挑戦し続けている。 日本では、フリーランス記者は日常的に差別に直面している。(参照:http://en.rsf.org/japan-freelance-journalists-face-23-05-2012,42669.html)政府側らは、色々な口実を付けてフリーランスに対する制限を正当化しようと試みている。例えば、場所(席)に余裕がない、時間制限のため、余分な費用がかかるなどだ。注目すべき点は、これらの制約がフリーランス記者のみを対象としていることだ。大手メディア企業に雇用されたジャーナリストには課せられていない。 _______反原発デモ取材を妨害されるジャーナリストら 2012年11月6日(火)発行、2012年11月7日(水)更新 Organisation See Japannese version belowReporters Without Borders declares its support for a legal demand to the Tokyo regional court by three freelance journalists seeking access to an official press club building that would allow them to cover anti-nuclear demonstration.Yu Terasawa, Michiyoshi Hatakeyama and Yuichi Sato filed their demand on 31 October. They have been trying since June to enter the building of the Kisha club of the National Diet (parliament). The building offers the perfect vantage point for coverage of anti-nuclear demonstrations held every Friday in front of the prime minister’s residence, directly across the street. Club director Toshiyuki Saga has prohibited the freelancers from entering.“This obstruction of freelancers’ work is arbitrary and illegal under Japanese law and violates the fundamental principle of freedom of the press,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The court will not provide legal cover for obstruction of access, especially given that the request for legal action comes from journalists themselves.”Freelance journalists play an essential role in ensuring diversity in news coverage, the press freedom organization noted, calling that diversity essential to a democracy. The Kisha clubs not only embody a system of unfair privileges but systematically display contempt for an entire part of the media community, the organization said.The three journalists who went to court belong to a freelancers’ liaison group created in October of last year to fight for freelancers’ access to press conferences held by the government and TEPCO, the electric utility. The freelancers have tried to film the weekly anti-nuclear demonstrations.Before making their legal move, the journalists wrote on three occasions to club director Saga, a former journalist with Kyodo News. The letters, dated 17 July, 16 August and 10 October, have gone unanswered.But Saga, in a video released on YouTube on 13 October, expressed hostility to the freelancers who had come to cover the protests. 『国境なき記者団』は3人の日本人フリーランス記者の東京地方裁判所・仮処分命令申し立てを支援することを宣言する。3人のフリーランスは、反原発デモを取材する目的で国会記者会と佐賀年之・国会記者会館事務局長に対して取材妨害禁止の仮処分を求めている。 November 6, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists barred from anti-nuclear protest coverage Help by sharing this information 自由報道を追求する『国境なき記者団』は、多様性は民主主義にとって不可欠な要素であることを呼びかけ、フリーランス記者が報道内容の多様性を保障する重要な役割を担っていることを強調する。記者クラブは、不公平な特権分与のシステムを体現しているだけでなく、メディア・コミュニティ全体に対して、システム的に侮蔑を表示していると、『国境なき記者団』はこう認識している。 『国境なき記者団』はここ数年に渡って、記者クラブによって繰り広げられる情報統制そして同クラブの存在により引き起こされる自由報道への危機に対して異議を申し立て続けている。 RSF_en 寺沢有氏、畠山理仁氏、佐藤裕一氏は、先月10月31日に、仮処分命令を申し立てた。彼らは、今年6月から、国会記者会館への入館を試みている。同会館は、首相官邸前に位置していることから毎週金曜日に開催されている反原発デモを上から撮影する際、絶好の収録場所だ。佐賀年之・同会館事務局長は、フリーランスらが取材目的で立ち入るのを禁止し続けている。 Related documents japon_06_11_sous-titres_gb.pdfPDF – 46.62 KB News News News 日本において、原子力政策は非常にセンシティブな話題だ。ジャーナリストの田中稔氏は今年5月から法的処置を通して執筆記事を巡り嫌がらせを受け続けている。福島第一原発問題等の真相を追及した調査報道の結果、名誉毀損で訴えられた。 (参照:http://en.rsf.org/japon-nuclear-industry-entrepreneur-10-07-2012,42991.html) News May 5, 2021 Find out more September 16, 2020 Find out more On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia Follow the news on Japan Receive email alerts RSF urges recently appointed Japan Prime Minister to take a new turn towards press freedom 仮処分命令申し立てという法的手段に訴える前に、3人のフリーランスは、元共同通信・記者の佐賀同会館事務局長らに対して、3回、正式に入館許可を要請する手紙を送付している。7月17日、8月10日、10月10日付けの手紙には質問を記入したが、どれも返答はない。佐賀同会館事務局長は、10月13日に公開されたYou Tubeの動画上で、権利を求め抗議に訪れたフリーランスらに対して、敵意を露わにしている。You Tube:『国有財産である国会記者会館を記者クラブが私物化』http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYyPmLH-YCM 11月1日付けで、事実上、佐賀同会館事務局長は『国境なき記者団』の特派員からの質問に対して、「ノーコメント」と返答をほぼ全面的に拒絶。(こちらを参照: http://www.incidents.jp/news/) On 2 November, Saga refused to answer questions from a Reporters Without Borders correspondent.Freelance journalists are routinely discriminated against in Japan. Officials typically attempt to justify this policy on a variety of grounds: lack of space, lack of time, extra cost. Notably, these constraints apply only to freelancers – not to journalists employed by media companies.Nuclear policy remains an extremely sensitive issue in Japan. Freelance journalist Minoru Tanaka has suffered systematic legal harassment since last May. He has been accused of libel as a result of his investigation of the disaster at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant.Reporters Without Borders has opposed for years the censorship exercised by the Kisha clubs and the danger to press freedom that they represent.

Tenure reform means that good teachers can keep their jobs and those who are not doing their jobs can be fired.”Hubbard said that the federal government is incapable of getting its financial house in order but, over the past two years, the State of Alabama has cut $730 million out of its budget and has a goal of cutting $2 billion without cutting services to its citizens.“Our taxpayers deserve as strong an economy as possible,” he said and predicted a continuing improved economy because Alabama is business friendly, has low taxes and is a right to work state.Hubbard said that when Airbus, a leading aircraft manufacturer, announced plans to locate the company’s first U.S.-based production facility in Mobile, the news rocked the world.

The Disco Biscuits Kick Off Three-Night Hometown Throwdown In Philly [Pro-Shot Video]

first_imgThe Disco Biscuits performed their first of three nights at The Fillmore in Philadelphia last night. Their hometown throwdowns are notoriously good, as the premises give bandmates an opportunity to explore new measures in the comfort of their own homes. Three night runs, nonetheless, allow for even more jamming that the jamtronica experts are known for.To kick off the night, the Biscuits opened appropriately with “Coming Home,” a not-so-subtle reference to their return to The City of Brotherly Love. The band also modified the lyrics of “Coming Home,” using the Philly-centric lyrics that were debuted during their New Years Run in 2002 stating “Philly, it’s always been home with a Happy New Year Biscuits coming home.” The night would see this song return for the final slot of the first set, as the band made the six-song first set a giant “Coming Home” sandwich.The night would see this song return for the final slot of the first set, as the band made the nonstop six-song first set a giant “Coming Home” sandwich. Following the show opener, the band moved through “I-Man” and “Vassillios” before hitting an inverted “Abraxas,” all of which featured took advantage of the space in the first set to get exploratory and jammy. The Biscuits then covered Pink Floyd’s “Run Like Hell” before returning back to the reprise of “Coming Home” to close the first set.The second set of the night started off with a bang, with the band starting off with “The Overture,” which lasted over thirty minutes. This dropped straight into an inverted “Portal To An Empty Head” before swinging through “Overture” once again. The band reset for “Highwire,” before moving into “I Remember When.” The second set closed on “Magellan” and saw a return of “I-Man” from the first set. To close out the night, The Biscuits kicked off the encore with “Wet” before bringing back “Run Like Hell” to end the evening.You can take a peek at the setlist below, and watch the full show here:Check out pro-shot footage of show-opener Aqueous’s performance last night too!The Disco Biscuits return to the stage tonight with Swift Technique and will be live streamed from the band’s YouTube page.Setlist: The Disco Biscuits | The Fillmore Philadelphia | Philadelphia, PA | 2/2/17Set I: Coming Home-> I-Man-> Vassillios-> Abraxas-> Run Like Hell-> Coming HomeSet II: The Overture-> Portal to an Empty Head-> The Overture, Highwire-> I Remember When, Magellan-> I-ManE: Wet-> Run Like Hell[Setlist/Photo via Disco Biscuits Facebook]last_img read more

Deans Smith and Hammonds to use Old Quincy as House renewal test project

first_img Read Full Story Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) Dean Michael D. Smith and Harvard College Dean Evelynn Hammonds today (Jan. 14, 2011) announced that Old Quincy House will be used as a test project to explore design and construction options for a future system-wide House renewal project.“The Houses are the cornerstone of the Harvard undergraduate experience,” said Dean Smith, John H. Finley Jr. Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences. “Even during the financial difficulties of the last two years, we have moved ahead with planning for system-wide House renewal, which aims to configure this beloved institution for the future. We want to ensure that the Houses remain the powerful, generative places they have always been for Harvard students, and we’re excited to get a chance to test a part of our vision in Old Quincy.”Dean Smith said that Old Quincy’s size and neo-Georgian architecture will enable planners to learn lessons that can be applied to other buildings.Quincy House consists of two buildings, Old and New Quincy. Old Quincy House, about half the size of most of the neo-Georgian Houses and without its own dining hall or master’s residence, provides a valuable opportunity to test design concepts, while limiting disruption of the House community. The plan assumes the FAS and the College will close Old Quincy House for 15 months — or one academic year plus the summers before and after — beginning in June 2012. Affected students will reside in nearby “swing” space, potentially properties owned by Harvard Real Estate Services (HRES). The approximately 180 students will remain part of the Quincy House community throughout the project, and will continue eating in the dining hall in New Quincy.Though no timeline for system-wide House renewal has been set, Dean Smith made it clear that timing would be tied directly to the availability of funding.last_img read more
