Modern Day Witch Hunts Throughout the World
Modern day witch hunts throughout the world! Many poor women get hunted & accused of witchcraft. Witch hunts are still present & some believe in magic, while hunting thousands of innocent women. Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] 4: Papua New Guinea The people of Papua New Guinea mostly believe in magic. While the practice of faith healing or "white magic" is allowed, the country legislated the Sorcery Act which bans any form of "black magic". It is an increasingly visible problem in a country made up of hundreds of ancient tribal communities on a tropical island. In the local culture, the idea of payback is an engrained principle, and nearly all disagreements turn physical. According to government reports, extrajudicial witch hunts in Papua New Guinea are spreading from the rural highlands to cities due to the migration of villagers. 3: Saudi Arabia Because of lack of transparency and public reports, the exact number of sorcery-related cases is unknown. In 2006, a Saudi woman named Fawza Falih made international headlines. He is known in the Middle East for his on-screen fortune telling. Ali was allegedly caught trying to provide a woman with a magic potion that would break up a marriage. He was lucky, as most witchcraft convicts in the country end up with their heads rolling. 2: Sub-Saharan Africa The phenomenon of witch hunts in Sub-Saharan African community is an ancient one, but still continues to this age. The problem is extremely serious and present in almost all countries in Sub-Sahara Africa. Those accused of witchcraft are usually people who are considered different such as albinos, the elderly, and the diseased and disabled. Witch hunts are usually driven by so-called specialist witch-finders who have the skills to identify magic practitioners. Pioneering British social anthropologist Audrey Richards wrote about the Bamucapi, a new wave of witch-finders who appeared among the Bemba people of Zambia in the 1930s. In the southern regions of Africa, Zulu and Bantu people have witch smellers responsible for rooting out witches. South Africa has long passed an act suppressing witch hunting activities, but the county's neo-pagans and traditionalists constantly try. Disturbingly, recent years have seen the rise of witchcraft accusations towards African children, especially orphans. The problem of child witchcraft accusations has even spread among Africans populations who have migrated outside the continent. In 2010, in the UK, 15 year old Kristy Bamu was accused of taking part in kindoki, or African voodoo by his older sister and her boyfriend.According to Scotland Yard, the case was just one of 83 ritualistic-based abuse cases they had been investigating for the past 10 years. 1: India Witch hunting is a centuries old practice in India that still continues to this day. Although a lot of it has to do with religion and superstition, the real problem comes from people trying to seek profit from the accusations. In most cases, superstition is nothing but an excuse. A woman is often branded a witch so that others could grab her land and kick her out of the village. Sometimes, it is done because of family rivalry or to settle scores. Sometimes conservative communities would target women who question social norms by branding them as witches. The irony is that the branding of victims is made by male shamans known as "ojha", who themselves practice some sort of "sorcery". They perform incantations, and write the names of suspected individuals on the branches of a sal tree. If a branch withers, the name of the person written on it would be labeled as a witch. Other times, rice is wrapped in separate bags, each written with the names of suspected individuals. The bags of rice are then placed in a nest of white ants, and the one that gets eaten by the insects marks the witch. In 2011, an Indian witch doctor had 30 women drink a poisonous potion to prove they weren't witches, causing all of them to fall ill. The man was later taken away. Witch hunts predominantly occur in the country's poor northern states of Assam, Jharkhand, and Bihar. Poor and illiterate women find it difficult to travel from isolated regions to file police reports, causing most cases to go unreported. Overall, less than 2% of witch hunters in India are actually caught. Similarly, neighboring Nepal also experiences the same problem, with low caste women being the main targets.

Breaking News - 'Jihadists behead' Mozambique villagers
Mozambique 'jihadists behead' villagersAt least 10 people have been beheaded in northern Mozambique by suspected Islamist militants, officials say. Children are reported to be among those targeted in the attack on Monjane village in Cabo Delgado province, a hub for mining and petroleum exploration.An Islamist militant group has carried out sporadic attacks in the region in the last year.It is believed to be making millions of dollars from selling timber and rubies.Known locally as al-Shabab, the group was formed in 2015 as a religious organisation and has no known links to the Somali jihadist group of the same name.Africa Live: More on this and other stories More about Mozambique One of the victims of the weekend attack was the leader of Monjane village, a local resident told the AFP news agency."They targeted the chief as he had been providing information to the police about the location of al-Shabab in forests," he is quoted as saying.Recent academic research, included in this week's Mozambique News Reports and Clippings newsletter, found that early members of the group, sometimes also called al-Sunna, were followers of a radical Kenyan preacher who was killed in 2012.His followers moved south and settled in Kibiti in southern Tanzania, near the border with Mozambique.Police have arrested more than 200 people in connection with the Islamist militant attacks, which began last October.Last week, the authorities reopened six mosques closed in the wake of the attacks after they broke links with armed groups.Alvaro Junior, director of justice in in Cabo Delgado, said seven other mosques believed to have been owned by fundamentalist groups, had been destroyed by the authorities.

‘Greener Turkey’ campaign to launch with seeds sent to 23M households
‘Greener Turkey’ campaign to launch with seeds sent to 23M households Turkey is launching a new afforestation campaign on March 21, kicking off by sending seeds to 23 million Turkish households, along with a letter written by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. "We will launch a new afforestation campaign with the slogan of 'Let's build a greener Turkey together' with an event at Beştepe National Congress and Culture Center in Ankara on March 21, the International Day of Forests," the country's Forestry and Water Minister Veysel Eroğlu told Anadolu Agency. Eroğlu said Turkey planted more than 4 billion saplings as part of afforestation activities between 2007 and 2011, with 300 million more planted last year. He said although forest assets are declining in many countries, Turkey's resources are increasing. "On my first day in the ministry, Erdoğan instructed me to launch an afforestation campaign around the world," he said. Erdoğan will attend the March 21 event in Ankara and send the first letter by mail to start off the campaign. The letter will contain a seed, Erdoğan's letter and a leaflet detailing the ministry's investments in the country. The United Nations' International Forest Day is celebrated each year on March 21, to raise awareness about the critical benefits of trees and forests. Many countries observe the day by carrying out tree-planting campaigns.

Chinese in Zambia - Straight through Africa
Forty years ago, the Chinese laid a train track through Zambia. Bram Vermeulen travels through the African country by train to discover how the relationship between these countries is now. Zambia and China are old friends. When the African country became independent in 1964, the Asians were the first to queue to lend a helping hand. Communist China, itself still poor, took the lead in the construction of a railway that ran through Zambia and neighboring Tanzania to the port city of Dar es Salaam. Of course, that was not only out of kindness; the Chinese saw trade opportunities in the area. More than forty years later, it turns out that the railroad ran into a grandiose failure that cost China a lot of money - you can read more about this in this story by Sean van der Steen, with beautiful photographs. However, the Chinese presence in Zambia has become indispensable, Bram notes. He comes across them along the train route. For example, Chinese people run a copper mine, breed chickens on a large scale and have large factories. Zambians work on this economic activity, under Chinese bosses. Not everybody is happy with that. Bram visits a village where an explosives factory has exploded. The Chinese owners had not taken it so closely with the safety regulations. The incident is illustrative of the working methods of Chinese in Africa: care for the employees is subordinate to the profits. Also in a copper mine, it appears that the working conditions are far from ideal, and that employees openly complain about their low salary. De opzichter van de mijn beklaagt zich op zijn beurt over de arbeiders: hij vindt Zambianen maar onhandig en lui. ‘We trainen al vele jaren Zambiaanse arbeiders. Er is een groot verloop onder het personeel. Ze gaan naar andere bedrijven zodra ze vaardigheden hebben verworven.’ Het zijn trouwens niet alleen Zambianen die met de arbeidsomstandigheden in hun maag zitten. Chinees personeel, dat letterlijk niet mag klagen, doet tegen Bram toch een boekje open. Het leven op een afgesloten compound, ver van familie en vrienden, bestaat bijna geheel uit werk en verplichte culturele activiteiten. Van integratie is geen sprake. Maar het is niet allemaal kommer en kwel. Ondernemende Zambianen vertrekken naar China en komen soms steenrijk terug. Een man die met een Chinese partner een textielbedrijf begon, leidt Bram rond door zijn grote huis. Zambianen kunnen in eigen land niet op tegen de Chinese concurrentie, zegt hij, en daar zou de overheid iets aan moeten veranderen. Het zou volgens hem veel helpen als buitenlandse ondernemers net als in China verplicht zouden worden een Zambiaanse partner in de arm te nemen. De vicepresident van het land erkent dat er problemen zijn. Chinese boeren verdringen de Zambianen, er wordt gesjoemeld met werkvergunningen, alle winst verdwijnt naar China. Werken is alles wat de Chinezen doen, zeven dagen per week, en ze eisen hetzelfde van hun Zambiaanse personeel. De oude communistische vriend heeft feitelijk kapitalisme in zijn puurste vorm in het land geïntroduceerd. Episode 5. A trail of Chinese Forty years ago, the Chinese built a railway through Zambia. Bram Vermeulen travels the country by train in order to discover how relations between the two countries currently are.Director: Doke Romeijn and Stefanie de Brouwer © VPRO October 2014 On VPRO broadcast you will find nonfiction videos with English subtitles, French subtitles and Spanish subtitles, such as documentaries, short interviews and documentary series.

🇺🇦 The Oligarchs - Al Jazeera Investigations
Aljazeera’s Investigative Unit unravels a high-stakes international plot hatched by powerful Eastern European oligarchs to make millions of dollars from a crooked deal. According to one Ukrainian analyst: “It sounds like an agreement between criminal bosses. You can sign it with your blood.” The scheme involves using a web of offshore companies and international lawyers to raid US$160 million dollars under the noses of the authorities. The money is effectively being stolen for a second time… the funds were initially frozen by Ukraine’s courts after its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, was discovered to have emptied the country’s treasury. The Oligarchs include an exiled gas billionaire guarded by Russian special forces, a Moscow property magnate and an Olympic show jumper on the run from Ukrainian authorities. The investigation shines light on the ever shifting battle between the oligarchs and global financial regulators.

Top 5 UK Banks Fuelling Climate Change by Financing Fossil Fuels
An open-cast coal mine in central Kalimantan, in the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo. A large swathe of rainforest has been cleared for the diggers, trucks and extraction equipment. Local people say waste from the mine is also finding its way into the river they rely on. The company behind the mining activity here is Indonesia's Borneo Lumbung, which got a one billion dollar loan in 2012 from Standard Chartered Bank, the UK's 2nd biggest bank. More widely, research by the anti-poverty campaigning group the World Development Movement shows the UK's FIVE biggest 5 banks: HSBC, Barclays, RBS, Lloyds and Standard Chartered, helped fossil fuel companies raise £170 billion pounds between 2010 and 2012. The group wants UK companies to have to disclose these investments, and ultimately to be prevented from making them.

Atlantic slave trade
The Atlantic slave trade or transatlantic slave trade took place across the Atlantic Ocean from the 16th through to the 19th centuries. The vast majority of those enslaved that were transported to the New World, many on the triangular trade route and its Middle Passage, were West Africans from the central and western parts of the continent sold by West Africans to Western European slave traders, or by direct European capture to the Americas. The numbers were so great that Africans who came by way of the slave trade became the most numerous Old-World immigrants in both North and South America before the late 18th century. Far more slaves were taken to South America than to the north. The South Atlantic economic system centered on producing commodity crops, and making goods and clothing to sell in Europe, and increasing the numbers of African slaves brought to the New World. This was crucial to those Western European countries which, in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, were vying with each other to create overseas empires. The Portuguese were the first to engage in the New World slave trade in the 16th century, and others soon followed. Ship owners considered the slaves as cargo to be transported to the Americas as quickly and cheaply as possible, there to be sold to labour in coffee, tobacco, cocoa, sugar and cotton plantations, gold and silver mines, rice fields, construction industry, cutting timber for ships, in skilled labour, and as domestic servants. The first Africans imported to the English colonies were classified as "indentured servants," like workers coming from England, and also, "apprentices for life". By the middle of the 17th century, slavery had hardened as a racial caste; they and their offspring were legally the property of their owners, and children born to slave mothers were slaves. As property, the people were considered merchandise or units of labour, and were sold at markets with other goods and services. This video is targeted to blind users.

The Republic of Zambia /ˈzæmbiə/ is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, neighboring the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west. The capital city is Lusaka, in the south-central part of the country. The population is concentrated mainly around Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt Province to the northwest. Originally inhabited by Khoisan peoples, the region was colonised during the Bantu expansion of the thirteenth century. After visits by European explorers in the eighteenth century, Zambia became the British protectorate of Northern Rhodesia towards the end of the nineteenth century. For most of the colonial period, the country was governed by an administration appointed from London with the advice of the British South Africa Company. This video is targeted to blind users.

FRENCH GUIANA. Police throw tear gas at protesters in Cayenne
Police threw tear gas at protesters in Cayenne, French Guiana, on Thursday night (October 26), as demonstrations took place during a visit of French President Emmanuel Macron. More than 1,000 protesters gathered at a demonstration in the afternoon, which turned into clashes in the evening between demonstrators and police who used tear gas. Protests swept the French territory in South America in March and April this year, with demands for greater security against crime - French Guiana is the French department with the highest murder rate. The demonstrations also reflected a deeper malaise in the territory which suffers from high unemployment. Speaking on Friday (October 27), Macron promised to implement commitments made by the French government after the social unrest but said the state would not yield to "pressure".

ch 23) The Clinton Presidency and the Crisis of Democracy
chapter 23: A People's History (Of The United States) Howard Zinn. ~ Chapter 23, "The Coming Revolt of the Guards", covers Zinn's theory on a possible future radical movement against inequality in America. Zinn argues that there will eventually be a movement made up not only of groups previously involved in radical change (such as labor organizers, black radicals, Native Americans, feminists), but also members of the middle class who are starting to become discontented with the state of the nation. Zinn expects this movement to use "demonstrations, marches, civil disobedience; strikes and boycotts and general strikes; direct action to redistribute wealth, to reconstruct institutions, to revamp relationships."

African Debate LGBT Rights on BBC 3, 2011
BBC Debate, Johannesburg. Is homosexuality un-African or not? Pssst: the answer is: of course Africans have, as well as everybody else, engaged in same sex activities, both mutual masturbation, tribadism, anal sex, mutual fellatio or cunnilingus. Suggesting anything else is a continuation of racism conceptualised from colonialism, that transformed Africans into children, that should be protected from the corrupt West.

Workshop on Abusive Language - 02 - Virtualpolitik
The last few years have seen a surge in abusive online behavior, with governments, social media platforms, and individuals struggling to cope with the consequences and to produce effective methods to combat it. In many cases, online forums, comment sections, and social media interaction have become sites of bullying, scapegoating, and hate speech. These forms of online aggression not only poison the social climate of the online communities that experience it, but can also provoke physical violence and harm. Addressing abusive language necessitates a multi-disciplinary approach that requires knowledge from several fields, including (but not limited to): media studies, natural language processing (NLP), psychology, sociology, law, gender studies, communications, and critical race theory. NLP, as a field that directly works with computationally analyzing language, is in a unique position to develop automated methods to analyse, detect, and filter abusive language. By working across disciplinary divides, researchers in all these fields can produce a comprehensive approach to abusive language that blends together computational, social and legal methods. In this one-day workshop, we therefore want to bring researchers of various disciplines together to discuss approaches to abusive language. The workshop will include invited speakers and panelists from fields within and outside of NLP, as well as submitted papers from researchers across all areas. In addition, the workshop will host an “unshared task”. SPONSERS: Malcolm S. Forbes Center for Culture and Media Studies, StainTek, Amazon, Google, The New York Times & Bloomberg

Natural Sound Labour union workers and police have clashed in Bolivia. The unions withdrawn from negotiations with the government after neither side could reach an agreement to increase the workers' salaries. The protest is the first in a series of moves to pressure the government into meeting the workers' demands. Bolivian workers have once taken to the streets to show their discontent. Thousands of workers protested in the Bolivian capital, La Paz, to demand the government approves an increase in their salaries. Anti-riot police were deployed downtown La Paz after the government said it would not allow demonstrations that could alter the public order. But the protesters refused to disperse and faced police with stones. Police fired tear gas to disperse the crowds. The leader of the Central Obrera Boliviana or C-O-B, said the unions had withdrawn from negotiations with the government after neither side could reach an agreement on the salary increase. The unions are demanding a monthly minimum wage of at least 466 dollars to cope with the high cost of living. The government says it cannot approve an increase of more than eight percent for state workers. The workers are also protesting against a the law of educational reform and an government plan to privatize state industries. The protesters claim the law of educational reform is aimed at privatising schools a move that could leave up to 70-thousand teachers without a job. The unions and the opposition are trying to prevent the government from privatising the state oil industry which generates the largest amount of financial income to the country. Despite police intervention the protesters have announced a series of protests to pressure the government to meet their demands. The unions have not ruled out an indefinite general strike if the protests are not successful.

Former Zimbabwe first lady Grace Mugabe accused of running ivory poaching network
Zimbabwe police have launched an investigation into former first lady Grace Mugabe over allegations that she headed a poaching and smuggling syndicate which illegally exported tonnes of elephant tusks, gold, and diamonds from the country, the Telegraph can reveal.   Emmerson Mnangagwa, the president of Zimbabwe, sanctioned an "urgent" investigation into Mrs Mugabe's activities after "very strong" evidence was uncovered by Adrian Steirn, an Australian photo journalist, a senior official in the presidential administration said. Mrs Mugabe wielded significant power in Zimbabwean politics until her husband Robert was ousted in a soft coup last November. She was named as the alleged mastermind of the illegal operation by two suspected poachers who were later arrested in a police sting after trying to sell Mr Steirn tusks in February. She has not yet been charged. Zimbabwe is home to about 86,000 elephants, or the second largest population in Africa, according to a census published in 2016. That figure represented a 10 per cent drop in numbers since 2005. Although the population is considered healthy in the north-west of the country, losses have been heavy in other parts. About 900 elephants were lost to poachers between 2013 and 2016, nearly 250 of them poisoned with cyanide or shot. Ivory poaching | Five facts Mrs Mugabe's name was linked to large-scale wildlife trafficking following a four-month investigation by Mr Steirn, who posed as a customer for contraband ivory in order to infiltrate the smuggling and poaching networks preying on the country's national parks. In an exclusive interview with the Telegraph, Mr Steirn said he decided to launch the investigation after hearing rumours about Mrs Mugabe's complicity in trade during several years reporting on wildlife crime in Africa. "For years I've been documenting the frontline poachers who end up serving 20 years for shooting a giraffe. Meanwhile, she was taking billions of dollars out of the country," he said. "If they charge and arrest her, and she goes to jail for wildlife crimes, that will change the dynamic of the entire perception of wildlife trafficking across Africa," he said. Undercover footage filmed by Mr Steirn and seen by the Telegraph shows several sources, including suspected poachers and intelligence, wildlife and aviation officials, describing how Mrs Mugabe smuggled ivory poached in national parks or looted from government warehouses out of the country by exploiting an exemption from airport security screening as First Lady.   They include Fariken Madzinga, 48, a registered dealer of ivory who describes in the footage how he also runs a syndicate that handles both poached ivory and tusks stolen from the government's secure stockpiles of wildlife products on behalf of Mrs Mugabe. In conversations with Mr Steirn recorded before his arrest, Mr Madzinga described how he relies on "the president and first lady" to get contraband tusks out of the country. "In order for it to pas
