Australia: Bishop speaks out after asylum tragedy

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books By ACNS staffPosted Feb 21, 2014 Rector Albany, NY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem [Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Church of Australia has called for a review of the country’s asylum and refugee policies after a violent break-out at a regional processing facility on Manus Island resulted in the death of an Iranian asylum seeker.Twenty-three-year-old Reza Barati was moved to Manus Island last August, a month after he arrived on Christmas Island. He is one of thousands of asylum seekers, mainly from the Middle East, who try to enter Australia on dangerous boat journeys from Indonesia. He was killed on Monday in an incident in which 62 other asylum seekers were injured.Manus Island, in Papua New Guinea, holds 1,300 asylum seekers. It is one of a number of South Pacific regional processing facilities used by Australia to house refugees and asylum seekers while their claims are evaluated.A former senior civil servant in Australia’s Attorney General’s department, Robert Cornall, has been appointed to head an inquiry into this week’s violence at the center.“Following the tragedy on Manus Island, the implementation of government policies regarding asylum-seekers must be reviewed,” said the Rt. Rev. Philip Huggins, chair of the Anglican Church of Australia’s Migrant and Refugee Working Group. “The government has a mandate to ‘stop the boats’, elaborating policies of the previous government. However, the implementation of these policies is causing great harm and is a matter of moral distress to many Australians.”Huggins, the area bishop of the North West Region of the Diocese of Melbourne, said: “Implementation has involved children in detention centers; off-shore ‘processing’ which is really just holding asylum-seekers in crowded, sub-standard conditions without processing towards any kind of futures; and on-shore prescriptions, which drive asylum-seekers into poverty and depression without access to education or employment.“It is the implementation of government policy which must be reviewed. A civilized government must be able to control its refugee intake without resort to measures of intentional cruelty.“We have previously been a generous nation towards refugees. Refugees’ contributions have, thereafter, enriched our common wealth. Our own history tells us what blessings follow when the spirit and detail of the Refugee Convention is honored. Conscience cries out for a review of current implementation measures.” Tags Submit a Job Listing The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Press Release Service Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Martinsville, VA Submit a Press Release An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. read more

Central Florida Commission launches pilot program to house and employ homeless…

The pilot will first take place in Orange and Osceola counties.“Our community has challenged itself to find a better way to support our families in need of a stable place to live,” says Dick Batchelor, chair of the family committee of the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness. “Our committee has done the research and we’re ready to demonstrate how we can provide more targeted, client-focused support to our families who need it the most.”“Thanks to the work of Dick Batchelor and the Family Homelessness Committee of the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness, we’ve gained invaluable insight into the very complex issue of family homelessness,” said Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs. “Above all, we know that having a stable, safe and nurturing place to live can make a profound difference in the lives of our children and families.”According to research from the Commission’s Family Committee, more than 10,000 school-age children were homeless in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties during the 2016-2017 school year. The underlying issues of family homelessness in Central Florida are housing stability, employment and income. The pilot program will work with families to address these three key areas through a coordinated entry system. After an intake process, families will be assigned to a Rapid Rehousing program to meet their immediate needs. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply  “The beginning of this pilot program is the result of our community coming together to test strategies for solving the issue of family homelessness, a problem that affects us all. This will change the way that we help families in our community resulting in a culture shift that will lead to impactful results.”–Mark Brewer, president and CEO of Central Florida FoundationParticipants will then be matched with a jobs placement coordinator through Goodwill Industries of Central Florida, which has received a $355,000 grant from Central Florida Foundation to lead the employment piece of Impact Families. The organization will work with each individual to assess their skills and strengths, build an employment plan, and connect participants to employment, education and certification opportunities, or services for disabilities. This pilot will aim to place individuals in jobs in which they will excel, with the goal of increasing their income.“For many of our neighbors in need, getting a job or finding a better job is the missing link that empowers them to support themselves and their families,” said Bill Oakley, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Central Florida. “We’re proud to partner with the Commission to extend new opportunities to those who are homeless.”Central Florida Foundation will manage and evaluate the grant-making for this pilot against criteria approved by the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness. The Foundation has managed the investments in the Housing First initiative with more than $7 million in contributions to the Homeless Impact Fund at the Foundation. The Housing First initiative has built a system for housing the community’s most vulnerable chronically homeless individuals.“The beginning of this pilot program is the result of our community coming together to test strategies for solving the issue of family homelessness, a problem that affects us all,” says Mark Brewer, president and CEO of Central Florida Foundation. “This will change the way that we help families in our community resulting in a culture shift that will lead to impactful results.”In addition to the efforts of Goodwill, Homeless Services Network and the Corporation for Supportive Housing will convene a cohort of nonprofit organizations and local governments. The cohort will gather case managers, employment specialists and other resource providers once a month over a one-year period. The partners will focus on a variety of topics relevant to their work, including trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, resource mapping and case discussions. This effort will work to align service providers around the Housing First model as it relates to families.In addition to their decades long support of children and families read more

Aloys Kabura finally released after completing a five-month sentence for criticizing government in a bar

first_img November 27, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomes the release of Aloys Kabura, correspondent in Kayanza, northern Burundi for the state-owned Agence burundaise de presse (ABP), after serving a five-month jail sentence. He told Agence France-Presse (AFP) that he had been “unfairly” imprisoned and that the charges were “completely fabricated, because there were other reasons behind it.”—————————– 19.09.2006 – News agency reporter gets five months in prison for criticising government in a barReporters Without Borders today voiced “deep concern about the future of democracy in Burundi” after Aloys Kabura, the state-owned Agence Burundaise de Presse’s correspondent in the northern city of Kanyanza, was sentenced yesterday by a court in Ngozi to five months in prison for “rebellion” and “defamatory statements.”Kabura was arrested on 31 May for comments he made in Kayanza bar in which criticised the government and police for kidnapping a score of journalists for half a day on 17 April inside the home of a parliamentarian who had just been ousted from the ruling party.“This verdict is outrageous and sickening,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Firstly, it shows that the Burundian intelligence services tell the police and courts what to do. Secondly, it shows their determination to crack down hard on all those who stray from the party line despite all the attempts at mediation and the appeals for reason. Finally, it means that a sick man who has committed no crime will have to stay in prison.”Kabura learned of the verdict from two judges who went to see him in Ngozi prison. The court had handed down its verdict in a public hearing, but neither Kabura, his family nor his lawyers were present. Kabura has been in poor health since his third week in detention. Requests for his release on bail on medical grounds were ignored.He had reported being watched and threatened by the police prior to his arrest after he wrote a story in January about sugar smuggling across the border with Rwanda that allegedly receives police protection.—————-14.06.2006 – Legal shenanigans keep outspoken news agency reporter in prisonReporters Without Borders today called for the release of Aloys Kabura of the government-owned Agence Burundaise de Presse (ABP), who has been kept in detention for the past two weeks in the northern city of Kayanza by means legal irregularities and manoeuvres by the local prosecutor. Kabura was arrested on 31 May for criticising the government while in a bar.“This is typical of all legal cases that are subject to pressure from the police and politicians,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Kabura is clearly being singled out for speaking his mind. The Burundian courts must free Kabura at once to avoid becoming accomplices to the abuse of authority and shenanigans that put him in prison.”According to prosecutor Jean Paul Manwagari, Kabura was arrested for “making defamatory statements about the regime on 21 April.” He was illegally imprisoned because the offence with which he was originally charged is punishable by a maximum of two months in prison or a fine of 5,000 Burundian francs and, under Burundian law, pretrial custody can only be ordered in cases carrying a minimum penalty of a year in prison.After realising the mistake, the prosecutor issued a new arrest warrant on 5 June listing additional offences and backdated it to before Kabura’s arrest. He is now accused of rebellion, insult and slanderous allegations. The prosecutor claims the original warrant was due to a secretarial mistake.The Lawyers Without Borders organisation said it might take charge of Kabura’s defence. A custody hearing is now scheduled for 16 June.
