Day 8: Digital Storytelling
be heard -- tell your story
---------------------------

Listen to survivors of violence against women take up multimedia
technology, and tell their own powerful and transformative stories.

Digital storytelling by Silence Speaks [www.silencespeaks.org] is an
initiative that makes it possible for survivors and witnesses of
violence to come together in small groups, reflect on their gender
training and experiences of abuse, and tell their stories in their own
words, sounds and images.

Few opportunities exist for survivors to tell their stories in their
own
words. Silence Speaks fills this gap by connecting survivors and
witness
of abuse with their creativity and making their voices the centerpiece
of violence prevention and social justice efforts. Bearing witness to
these stories moves the issue from the individual to the collective,
and
offers hope for ending the violence.

Twelve powerful stories are showcased on Take Back The Tech!, in
partnership between Silence Speaks and APC Women's Programme.

Listen deeply.

*************
Action Day 8
*************

A study [http://www.stopvaw.org/Prevalence_of_Domestic_Violence.html]
based on 50 surveys from around the world shows that at least 1 in
every
3 women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or abused in her lifetime.

Depressing statistics. But at the same time, think of all the women
that
you know. Grrls and women that you have chatted with on the bus, at
some
party, waiting for the elevator, at a work function, distant relatives,
their partners.... There are so many survivors amongst us.

1 in every 3 women whom we come across has experienced targeted and
senseless violence; and they are just... fine. We walk amongst unnamed
sheroes; with stories of tenacity, courage and everyday survival.

Action begins from reality. Tell your story. Use technology to amplify
your voice. If the rabble is loud in its protest, if 1 in 3 women speak
their case, then reality might start to look a little less ridiculous.

POLISH REPRO NEWS

POLISH  REPRO NEWS, 4 (14) /06
Federation for Women and Family PlanningPolandwww.federa.org.pl

September 2006

 

Polish Vice Prime Minister calls for the  constitutional protection of unborn life.  A  real threat of further restrictions on the anti–abortion law in Poland is  present. According to the existing bill, termination of pregnancy is legal to  save women’s life and health, when the fetus is badly deformed or when the  pregnancy is a result of a crime. Although the law is already restrictive, there  is a political initiative to make abortion fully illegal. Roman Giertych, the  Polish Vice Prime Minister also at the position of Minister of National  Education and the president of the League of Polish Families (LPR)  political party appealed on Saturday to all parliamentarians for their support  for the amendment of the article 38 of the Polish Constitution. Article 38  states that “The Republic of Poland shall ensure the legal protection of the  life of every human being”The LPR’s proposal is to add the phrase “from the  moment of conception” at the end of the sentence.  Giertych claims that the introduction of the constitutional protection of unborn  life will be a milestone in realizing John Paul II Testament. He also dared to  compare “killing unborn babies” with Holocaust. 

 

The amendment of  the Article 38 will be put to the vote in about one week. As for today, Giertych  has been already assured by the second Vice Prime Minister, Andrzej Lepper, that  his party Self-Defence (Samoobrona) will  support the amendment. Both parties, the League of Polish Families  and Self-Defence stay in coalition with the last election winning party  Law and Justice (PiS). Everything depends on the  decision of the PiS now but still its attitude towards the constitutional  amendment remains ambiguous and indefinite. One of the prominent members of PiS  and the parliamentarian speaker, Marek Jurek stated on Tuesday that indeed there  is such a need to guarantee the protection of life from the moment of conception  in the Constitution. 

The League of Polish Families  is known from its nationalistic, fundamental and anti-choice viewpoints. Last  year, Maciej Giertych, Roman Giertych’s father and member of the European  Parliament, organized a radical anti-abortion exhibition in the European  Parliament in Strasbourg. 

Polish  Federation for Women and Family Planning is organizing action against LPR's  initiative. If you would like to support the protest against  totally ban abortion in Poland, please sign up our open letter: http://www.federa.org.pl/signatures

Thank you for your  support!

Heroes of Our Time - The Top 50´s

 

FYI –

 

Please circulate

 

‘Heroes Of Our Time: the Top 50’

 New Statesman Magazine Cover Story

 

During Spring 2006 the international politics/current affairs journal New Statesman conducted a vote among readers for the top 50 heroes of our time. The definition of a hero: ‘A man or woman whose actions have been in the service of the greater good  and whose influence is national or international: someone who is prepared  to act in pursuit of a freer, more equitable and democratic future, without recourse to violence’.

The response, published as the magazine’s cover story in May, is ‘as surprising in its range and unpredictability as it was overwhelming’ though the first three are to be expected, world figures Aung San Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela and Bob Geldof.  No. 49 is leading theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, and No 50, Andrew Flintoff, famous English cricketer.

Quite a few respondents thought the magazine meant ‘people for our time’ rather than people alive and active now, so Winston Churchill and Jesus received a lot of votes.  

Of the 50 who topped the poll, 10 are female (20%), out of whom 5 are British: Democracy/post-conflict reconstruction specialist Lesley Abdela, Shami Chakrabarti, Queen Elizabeth 11, Helena Kennedy QC, Rt Hon Margaret Thatcher.

Dear friends,

Please distribute the below-mentioned letter through all the possible
channels.

Thank you.
Best regards,
Susanna Vardanyan,
Women's Rights Center,
Armenia

************************

Dear Colleagues,
Dear Friends,

I am addressing this challenging letter to you in response to the
urgent message which I received from International Federation for
Human Rights and the World Organization against Torture,
announcing about gross human rights violation in Uzbekistan.

The Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights, the joint program
of the International Federation for Human Rights and the World
Organization against Torture, requests the immediate intervention
of human rights organizations in the following situation in the country.

Mrs.Mukhtabar Tojibieva, head of the "Goryachie serdca" ("Hot
Hearts")human rights organization from Margilana (Fergana Valley)
was arrested on October 7, 2005 and was sentenced to 8 years of
imprisonment. Now she has been removed from her prison cell into the
psychiatric department for the mentally disordered and drug users of
the Tashkent Center for Convicts.
On July 13, 2006 Ms. Tojibieva's attorney was allowed to meet her; she
had both her hands tied.
Since that time no other meetings were allowed and no official replies
were given to the attorney's inquiry on the reasons of Ms. Tojibieva's
removal. According to the attorney Ms. Tojibieva was
depressed and looked very weak.
The Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights expresses its deep
concerns for Mrs. Tojibieva's detention.

Being the President of a human rights organization in Armenia,I am also
deeply concerned about the issue. I was shocked when I received this
message. I have met this woman in Tashkent. She is a cheerful,
communicative and open-minded person. I just don't understand
what this woman could have done that authorities pursue her in such a
manner. This is really unfair.

I am sure I am entitled on behalf of human rights organizations in
Armenia to send you our request to intervene in the process of
releasing Mukhtabar and to demand the Uzbek authorities
to take certain steps, including the following:

1. to guarantee Ms. Tojibieva's physical and mental immunity under any
circumstances,
2. to put an end to all forms of torture against Ms. Tojibieva,
3. to release Ms. Tojibieva immediately since her detention is
ungrounded.

The contact addresses by which you may send your challenge to Uzbek
authorities are listed below.

I. SMALL THOUGHTS AROUND...
*Freedom of Expression & Information*

World Press Freedom Day was celebrated on 3rd of May. Yet this year
alone, 21 individuals all over the world have been killed because of
their work as journalists, and many more are missing (Committee to
Project Journalists). As new digital communications technologies enable
new opportunities for the creation, expression and dissemination of
news and perspectives, these spaces are not invincible from the policing of
State and other equally impactful, but often submerged, socio-political
norms. GenderIT.org explores the gender dimension of freedoms of the
freedoms of expression and information.

This edition has been difficult in coming. We arranged for an interview
between guest writer and ICTs advocate, Katrin Verclas, with Manal
Hassan, a prominent communications rights activist based in Egypt. This
was also aimed to be in support of Alaa Abdel Fatah, her partner and
also active blogger on freedom of speech, who was detained together
with more than 300 activists during a peaceful protest on 7th May 2006. They
were arrested under the Egyptian Emergency Laws allows for 15 days
detention without trial that can be indefinitely renewed. More than a
month later, and after a third renewal of the 15 days detention, Alaa
is freed and continues to blog with Manal in follow-up of the other
activists still in detention [http://www.manalaa.net/].

On 12 June 2006, several thousand participants in a peaceful women's
rights protest who demanded changes to family laws and legal
discrimination against women in Tehran faced extreme violence. A large
number of police and security forces arrived at the scene, and ended
the protest by attacking the crowd with batons, and pepper gas. According
to the spokesperson for Ministry of Justice , 70 persons were arrested
during the course of this protest. However, this does not include the
arrests that happened prior to the protest, where women's rights
activists, student activists and also bloggers were summoned to court
and interrogated. Since then, others have been summoned for
interrogation by phone or in writing, including Sussan T, an active
women's rights and ICTs advocate from Iran. We contacted Sussan to help
render visible the situation that women rights activists are currently
facing in Iran, and to issue a call for support.

Understandably, at such critical moments, finding time and resources to
write or engage in interviews is difficult. Prioritising the urgency of
these two events, genderIT.org decided to postpone the edition for a
month while attempting to continue our contact with both Manal and
Sussan. It has been a troubled month of silence.

These two events demonstrate louder than ever that the spaces for us to
freely speak our minds, opine our thoughts, access information and
engage in democratic processes is narrowing. As such, this edition is
also a call for the renewal of commitment towards these fundamental
freedoms.

II. NEW ARTICLES
*Community radios and feminist voices against repression in Brazil*
The repression against community radios in Brazil reaches important
social projects and initiatives such as Novo Ar - a community
association and radio station led by Gra?a Rocha. In this interview to
GenderIT, Gra?a provides details about the repression that Brazilian
community radios experience and highlights the critical role that women
play in the radio and in the community: "women resist better. Here in
Novo Ar, women are the majority -- and although we feel exhausted
sometimes, we never give up, we keep struggling".
http://www.genderit.org/en/index.shtml?w=a&x=94794

* Tools for Communication Rights in Malaysia*
Jac sm Kee speaks with one of the most vocal media and communication
rights advocate in Malaysia, Sonia Randhawa, through an online
messenger platform about motivations, communication technologies, rights,
democracy, tactics and gender. Sonia currently sits as the Executive
Director of the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ). Apart from
conducting regular trainings on independent media and communications
strategies, CIJ is also developing community radio programmes that
innovatively combine "old" and "new" technologies -- radio and the
internet -- through Radiq Radio.
http://www.genderit.org/en/index.shtml?w=a&x=94522

*Culture, local traditions, and taboo - Challenges to the full
expression of women's voices*
Popular communicators that work in community radio-telecentres in
different states of Brazil talk about their achievements and
apprehensions concerning the complete freedom to express themselves. As
members of the Cyberela Network (Red Cyberela) developed by the
feminist organisation Cemina, the communicators explain the reasons behind their
self-censorship and how they gradually overcome taboos and prejudices
through their work with microphones and screens.
http://www.genderit.org/en/index.shtml?apc=a--e94775-1&x=94775

*A Women's 'Commons'? An Exploratory Dialogue on the Potential of the
Knowledge Commons for Women*
The idea of the 'commons' has been contestedly understood as being both
a principle of understanding content and creative products, and a
community that supports the sharing of information and creative
content.
It is also directly linked with subverting current Intellectual
Property Rights paradigms, where ownership and control of information,
knowledge, and content has been commodified. So what exactly is so 'new' about the
'commons'? Looking at the four paradigms where ideas about the
'commons' are supposed to operate, perhaps it is possible to see if developments
towards a Knowledge Commons resonates with feminist tactics/agendas/isms.
http://www.genderit.org/en/index.shtml?apc=a--e94793-1&x=94793

*Will women really benefit from the digital revolution?*
The book "The Gender Digital Divide in Francophone Africa, a Harsh
Reality" written by Marie-Helene Mottin-Sylla has just been translated
into English by APC, the Association for Progressive Communications. On
this occasion, Sylvie Niombo, Deputy Coordinator of APC's Africa-Women
Programme, interviewed Marie-Helene on the content of the book.

III. RESOURCES

*Access Denied: The Impact of Internet Filtering Software on the
Lesbian and Gay [version 2.0.]*
A survey of how internet filtering software, and ratings systems affect
the lesbian and gay community. "Access Denied" contains sections
analysing the legal, political and social implications of enforced
invisibility on the web. It also includes testimonials from lesbian,
gay, bisexual and transgender persons, who are those most directly
affected by the lack of access to important information via the web or
internet. The report offers recommendations for industry leaders on how
to make the internet both friendly and fair.
http://www.genderit.org/en/index.shtml?w=r&x=94799

*The Media Freedom Internet Cookbook*
The Media Freedom Internet Cookbook offers recommendations and best
practices, the results from the 2004 Amsterdam Internet Conference of
the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media. Among others, it looks
at "The Role of Filtering Software in Internet Content Regulation", and
documenting the number of cases how the filters may 'accidentally'
censor websites, and educational materials regarding AIDS, drug abuse
prevention, sexual and reproductive rights, or teenage pregnancy.
http://www.genderit.org/en/index.shtml?w=r&x=94798

*Gender Harassment on the Internet*
The paper examines the nature and types of gender harassment occurring
on the net, including possible causes of this online offense. It also
explores whether online gender harassment rises to the level of an
actionable claim, and will examine some of the inherent problems in
pursuing such claims, as well as pursuing criminal charges against
offenders.

Calls for an immediate end to the Middle East conflict

WIDE – Network Women in Development Europe
20 July, 2006 
WIDE Website - http://www.eurosur.org/wide/home.htm
 
Network Women in Development Europe (WIDE) calls for  an immediate end to the Middle East conflict 

WIDE is a  European network of development NGOs, gender specialists and  human rights activists monitoring and influencing international economic and  development policy and practice from a feminist perspective. We raise awareness  on the impacts of European and international policies on women’s lives and on  gender relations. WIDE promotes dialogue and cooperation among women worldwide,  including with women’s rights activists in Lebanon.

 

WIDE joins social movements across the world in condemning the  current Israeli offensive in Palestine and Lebanon. We condemn the escalating  and brutal violence and are concerned that women and children are  disproportionately affected by the current situation through displacement, and  other forms of violence. We call on the international community and regional  bodies to intervene for an immediate ceasefire and the implementation of UN  Security Council Resolution 1325.  

 

Since the  onset of Israeli military aggression against Lebanon, the following tragic facts  have been noted:

          More than 270 women, men and  children (overwhelmingly civilians) have lost their  lives.

          There are so far more than 60,000  internally displaced families from South Lebanon and the Southern suburbs of  Beirut.

          Tens of thousands have left the  country and many are still fleeing.

          The  preliminary estimated figure for economic losses in Lebanon in less than a week  exceeds 3 billion US dollars.

          There is a significant and  widespread destruction of public and economic infrastructure including airports  and seaports, bridges, roads, electrical powerhouses, factories and  other.

 

WIDE does not  believe any real, long-lasting solution can arise from this military aggression  and we strongly urge all parties to bring about an immediate end to the  hostilities. We insist that all parties protect civilians – Lebanese,  Palestinian and Israeli – in accordance with international  law.

 

WIDE expresses  concern that most European governments have remained silent and passive  vis-à-vis these tragic events. WIDE is outraged that the UN Security Council  debate on Lebanon ended last Friday with no action on Beirut's demand for an end  to Israeli air strikes. The European and international community have clear  commitments to secure human rights including the right to live in a healthy and  sustainable environment; these rights should be guaranteed immediately. 

 

As women  living in Europe, we demand….

          An  immediate ceasefire and call upon the UN to assume its responsibilities for  protecting peace and stability. 

          A  stop to all military actions. 

          An  immediate end to the policy of collective punishment of civilians. 

          The  immediate lifting of the blockade and end of targeting of transportation links  and public infrastructure that is leading to displacement of the population and  accentuating the worse humanitarian crisis in the  region.

          The  international community assists all people affected by the conflict in Lebanon,  Israel and Palestine, with a special focus on women and children.

New Page 2     CEE Bulletin on Sexual and Reproductive Rights  No 7 
(41) 2006 
Sexual and reproductive health and rights constitute fundamental
human rights, form a vital aspect of the women?s empowerment and are key to
the achievement of gender equality.
      BURNING ISSUE 
       According the organizers of the XVI International AIDS Conference
which will take place in Toronto between the 13th and 18th of August,
the list of 20,000 participants expected to attend the event includes
former presidents Mary Robinson of Ireland and Bill Clinton of the United
States, HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit from Norway, Bill and Melinda
Gates and Richard Gere. The scientific programme of the meeting will
be particularly strong and will trace new trends in basic and clinical
research, epidemiology, social science and policy. Out of the record
number of nearly 13,000 abstracts submitted, over 4,500 have been selected
for presentation: 366 as oral presentations, 199 as poster discussion and
4,000 as poster exhibition. Apart from the presentation of the latest
research, the conference will provide the delegates with an opportunity
to explore how best to prevent HIV and provide access to treatment and
care. In a number of sessions, the conference will address interalia
empowering women and girls as a major priority for an effective response
to the epidemic. It also includes sessions on the importance of women?s
reproductive health and rights, including the rights of sex workers.
The newly designed key challenge sessions will facilitate the exchange
of information and sharing of experiences to address the following
challenges:
      ? accelerating research to end the epidemic; 
      ? expanding and sustaining human resources to increase revention 
and treatment; 
      ? intensifying the involvement of affected communities; 
      ? building new leadership. 
      The organizers reported that two million USD have been allocated for
an International Scholarship Program which will allow 815 applicants out
of 16,000 who applied to take part in the gathering. Most of them are
from resource-limited countries. However, in some cases people who had
been granted scholarships by the organizers have been denied Canadian
visas. The problems have been experienced by applicants, some of whom
are living with AIDS, from Nepal, Nigeria, India, South Africa,
VietNam, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Fiji. The International AIDS
Society is trying to solve these existing problems and prevent others
from occurring by holding emergency meetings with Canadian officials.
     More information on the conference schedule, including satellite 
sessions and affiliated events is available at: www.aids2006.org
      REGIONAL UPDATES  
       Bulgaria: Retrial of medical workers accused of infecting Libyan 
children with HIV. Five Bulgarian nurses and one Palestinian physician
plead not guilty to the charge of infecting Libyan children with HIV.
They claim that they were forced to confess by Libyan officers who
used psychological torture measures against them during the interrogations.
The medical workers were sentenced to death by firing squad in May 2004,
but the Libyan Supreme Court overturned the convictions in December
2005 and ordered the retrial in the lower court. The retrial began in
May. The attorneys for the accused say that the June testimony of Libyan
medical experts was inaccurate and contradicted forensic evidence.
They requested that international HIV/AIDS experts be allowed to testify
at the retrial. In 2005, Luc Montagnier, the co-discoverer of HIV,
testified that HIV was present at the hospital where the defendants
were employed prior to their arrival.
      Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report 
      Czech Republic: Decreasing sale of condoms. The decreasing fear of
HIV infection and the popularity of modern contraception seems to be the
reason for the drop in the sale of condoms in the Czech Republic. According
to the experts, 54 percent of Czechs have had unsafe sex which places
the country 12th in the ranking of 41 states. Czechs have become less
cautious about HIV/AIDS than at the beginning of the 1990s since the
dramatic forecasts concerning the spread of the epidemic proved to be
wrong. In the years 1985-2005, 827 HIV-positive people were registered.
118 of them died.
      PUSH
      Georgia: Reproductive health project for youth. In June, the
Inter European Parliamentary Forum on Population and Development
(IEPFP), UNFPA and the EU launched a three year project to promote
youth reproductive health in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. The
project, entitled Reproductive Health Initiative for Youth in the
South Caucasus, is a large scale initiative aimed at young people
aged 15-24. It is designed to reach at least 50 percent of the
region?s 2,860,000 youth. With the three year budget of 2,9 million
Euros, the project aims at empowering young people to protect
themselves from unwanted pregnancies, STIs (including HIV) and gender
based violence by providing them with access to comprehensive youth
friendly SRH services and products.
      http://www.iepfpd.org 
      Georgia: Gender Network and Media: Integration and Mutual 
Empowerment - Fourth International Conference of Journalists. The
meeting took place on 1-3 July, 2006 in Tbilisi, Georgia. The event
was organized by Gender Media Caucasus Journalists Association.
      The conference focused on the issues of effective cooperation 
between the media and local gender networks. The participants were
journalists working on gender problems as well as non-governmental
sector activists working in cooperation with the media.
      The goals of the conference were to analyze cooperation between 
the networks and media of the post-soviet region, and to work out
future joint actions. Elwira Chrusciel represented the ASTRA
Bulletin crew during this meeting.
      ASTRA 
      Kyrgyzstan: the initiative to stricken the abortion law 
overturned. The parliament of Kyrgyz Republic decided that the
initiative of the Ombudsman to restrict abortion law is unjustified.
The proposal aimed at introducing criminal liability for women and
medical workers terminating 12-22 week pregnancies for social reasons.
The initiative was strongly opposed by Reproductive Health Alliance and
other NGOs of Kyrgyzstan, who in response initiated an advocacy program
for women?s right to abortion. ASTRA Network sent a letter to Kyrgyz
Republics Representatives expressing concern caused by the proposed
repressive sanctions. The letter also conveyed confidence that the
President of Kyrgyz Republic, Members of the Parliament, and the
Government will not allow the adoption of the Ombudsman?s proposition
because it violates fundamental human rights and contradicts both
national and international legislation. Reproductive Health Alliance,
Kyrgyzstan;
http://www.astra.org.pl/kyrgyz_abortion.pdf
     Poland: Abortion case admissible. The European Court of Human 
Rights declared the case of Tysiac v. Poland admissible. The Court
stated that the application "raises serious issues of fact and law
under the Convention, the determination of which requires an examination
of the merits." Alicja Tysi?c, now awaiting the Court?s decision,
was refused abortion although the pregnancy could severely damage
her eyesight.
Polish law allows the termination of pregnancy if it puts the woman?s
health or life at risk.
      Federation for Women and Family Planning
      Poland: ministry of education against the EC human rights manual. 
Roman Giertych, the minister of education and the leader of the
ultra-conservative party, League of Polish Families, dismissed the
director of the Center for the Professional Training of Teachers for
publishing and promoting the official manual of the European Council
aimed at preparing young people to participate in the life of civil
society and democratic state. One of the reasons Giertych found the book
unacceptable was that it recognized gay and lesbian rights. Although his
decision has raised protests from teachers, youth and civil society
organizations, the minister has not changed it.
 
      Federation for Women and Family Planning 
      ASTRA granted observatory status. ASTRA ? Central and Eastern 
European Women?s Network for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
has been accepted to be an observer at the HIV/AIDS Civil Society Forum
of the European Commission for the term until the end of August, 2007.
ASTRA
      GLOBAL UPDATES   
      Finland: Ban on the purchase of sex services. In June, Finnish 
parliament approved a law partially banning the purchase of sex services.
Under the new law, paying for sex services of an individual who is a
victim of human trafficking or pimping carries a maximum penalty of six
months imprisonment. The parliament rejected the draft law criminalizing
all purchase of sex services as well as the bill banning the sale of sexual
services.
      PUSH
      Ireland: The Alliance for Choice, a national grassroots organization, 
has called for abortion to be legalized in Ireland after statistics had been
published by the British Department of Health. The data indicate that each
day, 15 Irish women travel to Britain to have an abortion. In 2005, 5,585
women from Ireland terminated their pregnancy in Great Britain.
      http://www.rte.ie/news/2006/0705/print/abortion.html; 
WUNRN IPPF: New executive director. Dr. Gill Greer, the executive 
director of the Family Planning Association of New Zealand, has been
appointed the new Director-General of the International Planned
Parenthood Federation (IPPF). Dr. Greer will be taking up her post based
at IPPF?s London office in September, 2006 following the retirement of
current Director-General, Dr. Steven Sinding. www.ippf.org
     European Union: Discrimination against Roma Women. In a report 
adopted in June, the European Parliament called for measures to combat
the extreme levels of multiple discrimination faced by Roma women. Roma
women are among the most vulnerable people in Europe. The Parliament urges
the Member States, among other issues of concern, to prevent and outlaw
coercive sterilization, provide redress for such abuse, promote family
planning and alternatives to early marriage. It also calls for eliminating
racially segregated maternity wards, measures to help victims of domestic
violence and vigilance regarding the trafficking of Roma women. According
to the Parliament, the situation of Roma women should be a key criterion
for evaluating states of readiness for accession to the EU.

    European Court of Human Rights: Abortion case rejected. The case 
D. v. Ireland that could challenge the ban on abortion in Ireland has
been declared inadmissible by the European Court of Human Rights on the
ground that the applicant had not exhausted domestic remedies since she
had not brought the case to the Irish courts. The case was brought before
the ECHR by a woman who was pregnant with twins in 2002. After the antenatal
tests indicated that one fetus died in the womb and the second had a fatal
chromosomal abnormality -Trisomy 18, or Edward?s Syndrome - she decided to
terminate the pregnancy. She did not seek legal advice on her eligibility
for abortion in Ireland and instead obtained an abortion in the UK.
Abortion is allowed in Ireland only in the case of ?a real and substantial
risk to the life of the mother?. The applicant claimed that the lack of
abortion services in the case of lethal fetal abnormality and the present
law infringe on her rights. The Irish Family Planning Association who
lodged an amicus brief in support of the complaint in 2005, said that
the ECHR declaration was disappointing.
IFPA informed the media that it facilitated the complaint of three women 
living in Ireland who were challenging abortion restrictions.
According to IFPA, the basis of their complaint is significantly different
from that made by ?D? and ECHR decision is unlikely to have implication on it.

       Court of Justice of the European Communities: Medical treatment broad
in EU states. On May 16, in the case of Ivonne Watts v. Bedford Primary
Care Trust and Secretary of State for Health, the Court of Justice ruled
that the patient?s national health services should reimburse her/him for
the cost of hospital treatment provided in another member state even when
the service is provided for free in the country of residence. According to
the Court?s judgment, the patient can be refused authorization to receive
treatment abroad if the health insurance fund ?shows that the waiting time
does not exceed the medically acceptable period having regard to the
patient?s condition and clinical needs.? The Court?s judgment may prove
important for women in EU states who are denied access to abortion services
to which they are entitled within the legally defined timeframe.

     Science: Condom use lowers the risk of HPV-related disease. 
A new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine reports that
women whose partners always use condoms are 70 percent less likely to acquire
HPV infection than women whose partners use condoms less than 5 percent of
the time. In almost all cases, cervical cancer is caused by HPV. The study
was performed by researchers from the University of Washington. It provides
evidence that condoms are effective in reducing the risk of HPV. Until this
study, solid evidence proved that condoms prevent pregnancy, HIV infections
and, in the case of men, gonorrhea.
      PUSH
      Science: Womb transplants. According to scientists from Sahlgrenska
Academy in Gothenburg, Sweden, womb transplant in humans should be possible
within five years. Scientists have recently succeeded in transplanting
uteruses in sheep. They claim that in future the best wombdonor would be
the recipient?s mother or older sister in order to minimize the risk of
immune rejection.

and group-based courses and also as a reference manual to help participants
refresh and strengthen their skills. Composed of 13 modules, it brings a new
perspective to abortion-care training and service delivery. Features include:
a woman's rights approach to abortion care; unique considerations for special
populations, including adolescents and survivors of sexual violence; guidance
for use of both manual vacuum aspiration and medication-abortion technologies;
and recommendations for monitoring services and making linkages to communities.

NGO Responses to the UN S-G's Report International Migration and Development

FYI

From: Ramin.Kaweh@unctad.org  [mailto:Ramin.Kaweh@unctad.org] 
Sent: Wednesday, July 12, 2006 9:52  AM
To: undisclosed-recipients
Subject: NGO Responses to the  UN S-G's Report International Migration and Development 


On 6 June 2006, UN  Secretary-General Kofi Annan presented his report International Migration and  Development to the General Assembly. The report will provide the framework  for discussion during the Informal Interactive Civil Society Hearings taking  place on 12 July 2006 and the High-Level Dialogue of the General Assembly, being  held from 14-15 September 2006. 

In mid-June, NGLS launched an online call for comments on the NGLS  website to create an opportunity for civil society, especially those  organizations who were unable to participate in the 12 July Hearings, to provide  their views, comments and responses to the Secretary-General's report in order  to help support a constructive exchange in the process leading up to the  Dialogue. 

This compilation  aims, in a very general manner, to condense a number of these comments based on  the sections of the Secretary-General’s report and the four segments that  compose the Hearings: 

Segment 1: Promoting a comprehensive rights-based approach to  international migration, and ensuring respect for and protection of the human  rights of all migrants and their families.   

Segments 2 & 3: International  migration and development – challenges for social and economic policies in  sending and receiving countries. 

Segment 4: Policy responses –  Promoting the building of partnerships and capacity-building and the sharing of  best practices at all levels, including the bilateral and regional levels, for  the benefit of countries and migrants alike. 

The compilation is available online at: www.un-ngls.org

“I attach great importance  to the Informal Interactive Hearings with Non-governmental Organizations, Civil  Society Organizations, and the Private Sector on International Migration and  Development, which will take place on 12 July 2006 at United Nations  Headquarters in New York.  It is critical that Member States have an  exchange of views with a wide range of constituencies, including migrants  themselves, when they are preparing for the High-level Dialogue on Migration and  Development in September.” 
UN  Secretary-General Kofi Annan

Segment 1: Promoting a comprehensive  rights-based approach to international migration, and ensuring respect for and  protection of the human rights of all migrants and their families.    

Segments 2 & 3: International  migration and development – challenges for social and economic policies in  sending and receiving countries. 

Segment 4: Policy responses –  Promoting the building of partnerships and capacity-building and the sharing of  best practices at all levels, including the bilateral and regional levels, for  the benefit of countries and migrants alike.

Informal  Interactive Hearings with NGOs, Civil Society and the Private Sector and the  High-Level Dialogue. Comments will be collected and, based on the overall  response, a compilation of comments will be drawn up by NGLS and made available  to NGOs and Member States attending the 12 July Informal Interactive Hearings  and will be disseminated widely in the period leading up to the High-level  Dialogue in September.
