P4DP Concludes USA Global Conference on Peace-building

first_imgThe executive director of the Platform for Dialogue and Peace (P4DP), James Shilue, has returned to Monrovia from participating in a weeklong global forum in New York (USA) to articulate findings from a recently completed resilience study entitled: Frameworks for Assessing Resilience (FAR) in Liberia. FAR is a project led by Interpeace and implemented in collaboration with the Centre for the Studies on Peace and Development (CEPAD), P4DP, Interpeace-Guatemala and Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI). Funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), FAR was undertaken in Liberia for several objectives, including de-emphasizing fragility and to promote the concept of resilience; lifting local voices into policy arena nationally and internationally; identifying local and national structures that help to build lasting peace and enhance social cohesion, especially as UNMIL draws down; contribute to the new deal objectives of legitimate and inclusive politics; and explore what practical measures women use in dealing with marginalization and other forms of violence.As in other pilot countries where the project was implemented, FAR projects sought to understand the sources of resilience in society that can be leveraged for building peace. In Liberia, the project was able to document both existing as well as potential assets and strengths within societies and institutions that enable Liberians to recover from, overcome and prevent violent conflict. At the end of the study, there were four key findings that demonstrated the resilience of Liberians. They include marginalization of women in Liberian patriarchal structure; resilience mechanisms women devised against structural and societal threats; perception of a weak state and governance deficits evidence by people’s reliance on innovative and adaptive measures for survival. The study also observed the threats associated with increasing pressure on land and the absence of effective regulation that creates various responses from Liberia, and most importantly how Liberia responded to Ebola.The global forum was intended to hear the unique findings from the various participating countries and provided an opportunity for practitioners, policy makers, donors, academics and members of the various multilateral organizations, including the United Nations, to understand and critically reflect and make inputs on draft document that could serve as guidance for assessing resilience for peacebuilding. The forum, which was organized by International Peacebuilding Alliance (Interpeace), Liberia, Guatemala and Timor Leste, in collaboration with Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, explored a variety of issues.With resilience for peace building being a new concept, the forum also unpacked the concept and findings from a global lens in order to identify positive peacebuilding resilience assets. The underlying principle was to deepen the deliberations and understand the nature and sources of societal and community resilience, viewed through a conflict transformation lens, points to the potential that endogenous process of re-stitching the social fabric of relationships damaged by violent conflict.This will not only serve as retrospective means of adaptation, but also operate as forward looking and preventive in nature.Shilue highlighted the added values of the research in Liberia and admonished participants, international policy makers, donors, UN entities and multilateral organizations to harness its rich findings, particularly as UNMIL draws down ahead of the pending 2017 election to help consolidate peace and fortify Liberia against stress and long term conflict.

More protests to be held in front of City Hall

first_imgParking meter burden– as extraordinary statutory meeting called to deliberate on decisionCentral Government has, through Minister of Communities Ronald Bulkan, stepped in and ordered the suspension of the Georgetown Metered Parking By-Laws, but this step is being regarded as only preliminary. It will certainly not be enough to stop the weekly protests being staged by the Movement Against Parking Meters (MAPM).This organisation has been organizing the protests, and plans to take to the streets today.One of the most iconic images from the anti-parking meter protests, arising from week sixMAPM and its supporters plan to assemble peacefully in front of City Hall from 14:00 hrs. In a press release issued on Sunday, MAPM made it clear that it will not be accepting anything less than a complete revocation of the parking meter contract and its accompanying by-laws.Deputy Mayor Sherod Duncan, currently acting as Mayor, has announced the convening of an extraordinary statutory meeting of the Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) to discuss suspension of operations of the parking meters. This meeting is expected to be held today.Battle lines drawnWhen the news was broadcast that the by-laws in regard to metered parking had been suspended, MAPM was not the only one to make its position against the move clear.Town Clerk Royston King was defiant towards the Minister soon after the suspension order was announced. According to reports in other sections of the media, the Town Clerk had written a letter to the Minister, expressing the inability to suspend the project.Reports indicate that the Minister was also told that the three-month suspension as was recommended by Cabinet would result in a breach of the agreement signed with Smart City Solutions (SCS). This, the letter had stated, would create a situation whereby the company would have to be reimbursed all of its investment.The Government had ordered two reviews of the SCS contract – one done by the Ministry of Finance and one done by the Attorney General’s Chambers. Both reviews had been very damning of the contract, prompting amendments to be made by the company- Smart City Solutions Inc. (SCSI).The Public Communications Consultants Limited’s (PCCL’s) Kit Nascimento had acted as a public relations consultant for SCSI, but he terminated its contract with the parking meter company effective from March 17. A terse statement from PCCL on Friday had directed all media queries to SCSI’s office.While it is unclear why the Public Relations Agency ended the contract, it is telling that the decision came just four days after Cabinet had strongly suggested that the controversial contract be suspended.In addition, the decision became effective on the same day that Bulkan suspended the by-laws for three months.By-lawsGuarding against liability or prosecution, Section 23 of the City’s By-law exempts City Constables, parking wardens and the City Council itself from any liability, civil or criminal, for any damages “in respect of any action, proceeding or demand whatsoever, whether for the recovery of any alleged damage to such vehicle or otherwise in respect of removal thereof.”The City by-laws also go on to mandate that: “When a City constable or parking warden has reason to believe that a person has contravened any prohibition or restriction imposed by the Act, the City constable or parking warden may give the person a notice under this by-law in respect of the offence.”But it also caters for those who may be tempted to withhold information. Under Part VII, Offences and Penalties, it is an offence that attracts a fine of $50,000 to refuse to provide one’s name and address, or to give a false one, if asked to do so by a parking warden or city constable for the notice to be provided.The Act also stipulates that owners of vehicles deemed to be illegally parked are liable for any fees incurred from immobilization, removal, towing, improvement, and storage.In cases where someone is convicted of removing or attempting to remove the clamp without authorization, a fine of $100,000 applies, as does imprisonment of not more than three months.Section 57 stipulates that if a vehicle is unclaimed, or if the owner of the vehicle cannot settle any outstanding fees, the vehicle can be auctioned off by City Hall.City Hall is mandated to publish a notice of this auction fourteen days beforehand.These are just some of the provisions included in the by-laws assented to by Minister Bulkan on January 23.The provisions have been described by corruption watchdog Transparency Institute of Guyana Inc. (TIGI) as making no logical sense.ProtestsThe parking meter fees were rolled out on January 24. However, as a backlash to the “exorbitant” fees, motorists have mostly stopped parking in the central business district, where several areas are metered.In addition, there have been mass protests for seven consecutive weeks. The protesters have numbered in the hundreds, forcing the shutdown of Regent Street.Today’s protest will mark the eighth consecutive week of the citizens resolve against the controversial parking meter project.last_img read more

LA County highway deaths double this Labor Day weekend

first_imgHighway deaths doubled in Los Angeles County this holiday weekend over last year and increased statewide, but there were fewer drunk driving arrests, the CHP said today. The California Highway Patrol reported eight deaths in Los Angeles County from 6 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. this morning compared to four deaths last year in the same period. Across the state, 42 people lost their lives on California highways, compared to 32 last year. “We see it every holiday period when people set out on the roads. They are speeding and there is reckless driving,” said CHP spokesman Miguel Luevano. Of those who were killed, 26 were not wearing a seatbelt. “It doesn’t take but a few seconds to grab that seat belt and click it,” Luevano said. “As we’ve seen this holiday, people didn’t make it home or to their destination because they didn’t wear their seatbelts.” Both the Los Angeles Police Department and the CHP held dozens of sobriety check points across the area. The CHP arrested 296 drivers countywide this weekend compared to 307 last year. Statewide, the numbers were down as well, with 1,406 this holiday compared to 1,571 last year, the CHP said.

Everton agree deal to buy land at Bramley Moore Dock for new stadium

first_imgEverton have taken a significant step towards their goal of building a new stadium on the banks of the River Mersey after securing a deal to acquire land at Bramley Moore Dock.The club have agreed Heads of Terms to acquire the site, two miles from Goodison Park on the banks of the River Mersey, from Peel Land and Property subject to planning consent.There are still a number of hurdles to overcome – funding for the £300million-plus scheme for one – but it is the beginning of the process which will see Everton leave their home of 125 years.Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson helped broker the deal and on March 31 the city council is set to agree the principles of an innovative finance model which will take a lease of the stadium from a funder and, in turn, sub-lease it to the club.The stadium will be fully funded by Everton and no financing will be provided by the council but the authority will benefit from an annual security fee payable by the club in return for the council’s participation.“Over the past year, the club has worked with the support of the council and we are grateful for the ‘can-do’ approach that has got us to this important milestone,” said Everton chief Robert Elstone.“We are particularly grateful for the role the mayor has played to date in our talks with Peel and for his support in this important step in the journey towards reaching a funding solution for the stadium.“We are delighted that we have been able to agree Heads of Terms with Peel, giving us control of the Bramley Moore Dock site and allowing us the time we need to complete the substantial further work required to be able to confirm the project’s viability.“We can now move forward into the next phase of work with much greater confidence.”Bramley Moore Dock was the preferred option of the club, driven by majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, despite it being a more complicated and expensive option than an alternative site in Croxteth.Everton’s priority now is to secure the necessary funding to ensure the ambitious project does not go the way of three other failed stadium moves this millennium.The presence of Iranian billionaire Moshiri, crucially not a factor in their previous attempts to find a new home, on the board should considerably help that process.“Clearly, it is vital we have clarity on cost and we have to recognise that the stadium will be significantly more expensive at Bramley Moore Dock,” added Elstone.“To get that certainty, and ensure the stadium is affordable, we need to confirm stadium design, capacity and configuration and to do that, we need to talk to fans, partners and all stakeholders in the project.“We’re keen to stress not only the scale of the work ahead but also the remaining risks and uncertainties.“We’re delighted we’ve secured the site and we’re equally delighted the mayor is continuing to support our financing model, but significant hurdles remain, not least the preparation and submission of a detailed planning application.“Receipt of a successful planning approval at some point early next year will be the most significant step towards bringing the stadium to life.”The new stadium will form part of the £5billion Liverpool Waters project, which it is hoped will be a catalyst for economic regeneration and job creation in north Liverpool.“I’m delighted that we have got to a stage where the city and Everton can publicly share the vision for the club’s potential new home at Bramley Moore Dock,” said Anderson.“The proposed new stadium will be a landmark for the city’s spectacular north Liverpool waterfront and a powerful statement of intent for the club and the city of Liverpool that will resonate globally.”Over the last two decades Everton have suffered at least three failed attempts to find a site for a new stadium fit for modern football.In 2000 they announced plans to move to King’s Dock in the city, only for that to collapse when the necessary investment could not be found, and in 2009 a controversial move out of the city to Kirkby as part of a Tesco superstore redevelopment foundered after a public inquiry ruled against the plans.Most recently Walton Hall Park, the closest site so far to Goodison Park, was proposed last year as part of a housing, retail and leisure development but questions were raised about funding and viability and that too failed to come to fruition. The Toffees have played at Goodison Park since 1892 1last_img read more

FA chairman suggests gay footballers come out together

first_imgFootball Association chairman Greg Clarke has suggested the idea of a group of gay footballers coming out together.Clarke says he has spoken to gay players about the possibility of showing unity when deciding it is the right time to go public with their sexual orientation.Last year Clarke said he “wouldn’t recommend” a footballer coming out at the moment due to the risk of being abused, but hopes if a number of players come out at the same time it would allow them to share the spotlight.Clarke was speaking to The Times. PA“I put the message out there that if a number of top-level pros want to come out, why don’t we synchronise it? So one person doesn’t have to come out on their own,” he said in an interview with The Times. “The Premier League, the Football League and the FA could do it at the start of the season. At the start of the season everybody thinks it is their season, the crowds are happy, the sun is shining. I was asked (recently) if football is ready for top-level pros to come out and I said I’m not sure we were.The FA promote a number of anti-homophobia campaigns. PA“There was a survey which said people would support gay people in their own team, yes, but I’m worried about what they said about gay people in the other team, not that they would do bad things, but I said we should prepare well.“I’ve been asking the gay community, ‘How can we provide more support and orchestrate it so that people get the right level of support if people want to be open about their sexuality?’. I’ve met 15 gay sports people in the last four weeks to ask their views, including footballers.“It is very difficult to get to a representative set of gay top-level footballers because some of them are happy with their sexuality and just don’t want anyone to know. I don’t want to be part of a process that says, ‘You’ve got to come out’. That’s not right. People are cautious. It’s a one-way street. Once you’re out of the closet, you’re out.”last_img read more
