U. China Comm. Professor Defends Country’s Human Rights Record

first_imgA professor of Communications at the University of China has defended the Chinese government’s tight control of free speech and multiple childbirths – considered internationally as human rights – and questioned the benefits of the ‘freedoms’ African and the Western countries plead to sustain.Professor Zhang Yanqui, presented these staunchly pro-China views during her presentation on China’s Political Communication, at a seminar organized for African communications officers and journalists on Tuesday. Emphasizing the good intentions of the Chinese Government in controlling certain activities, Zhang added that the Chinese people “do not feel offended by the Government’s interventions.”The case for limiting free speechWhile the ban on social media including Google, the giant internet link, may be considered a human rights violation, she argued that the decision prevents the instability and political upheaval fueled by social media in many other parts of the world.The uncontrollable use of Facebook and twitter, based on their status as human rights, she said, is yielding negative effects in countries adopting the practice, including derogatory statements made on these websites, which have the propensity to stir conflict.“Freedom of speech is not absolutely free, but has limitations,” Zhang explained, citing as an example the renowned British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) radio, where “there has been no day the station will criticize the Queen.” “Nor it is not possible for a good husband or wife to criticize the family, despite differences they may have over issues. We do not encourage destructive criticisms against the state and government; [but] the limitation of some rights and freedom is meant [to foster] prosperous economic growth and to maintain peace, economic growth and social development.”One participant, too, injected in agreement with Zhang that Chinese Government’s Facebook ban was a “wise decision”, arguing that the social sites disadvantages far outweigh its benefits.According to the Ugandan female participant, the social site impedes on-the-job performance, as some workers spend more time on Facebook than doing their work. She also noted that the social media culture encourages poor English grammar and spelling. Government interference in the householdTouching the far more controversial and longstanding one-child policy, which has met heavy international criticism since its introduction in 1978, and the equally opposed acceptance of abortion, Zhang defended the success of these policies in controlling China’s population of 1.3 billion, and building a strong economy. She cited food security and availability of transportation as key factors necessitating population control.She then noted that the one-child policy will soon be revised to a second-child policy.The professor also highlighted China’s zero-tolerance for sex marriage and “other social interactions [that run] contrary to appropriate human attitude.” Holding the world and the media accountableHaving addressing the key criticisms held against the Communist state, Professor Zhang turned the tables on Africa and the West, citing their negative perspective on China and their concurrent failure to turn the lens on their own respective human rights blunders. Zhang suggested a different perspective: “for China, we are accused of human rights abuse, but despite our huge population, we secure food for our people and feed African countries. Although some children in our society do not have shoes to go to school, our government provides electricity, safe drinking water, education, amongst others for the citizens unlike many African countries and others Western countries that cannot feed their citizens or provide some of the basic essential services for them in the advocacy for human rights.”Turning her focus on the international media coverage of most development settings, she decried the practice of Western and African outlets to direct more attention to negative stories than positive ones. Here, she referenced the Ebola crisis in West Africa and terrorist activities in Nigeria, Mali and Somalia – events that the western media have concentrated on more than positive stories.Professor Zhang also stressed the need for thorough reporting, arguing that if media institutions can report negative stories, they must also be able to report the causes, the effects on the people involved, and steps being taken to resolve the challenges at hand.“This is what Chinese media outlets including the China Radio International (CRI), CCTV and others do, under the guidance of the government,” she said.In reference to constructive Journalism, Professor Zhang said it does not criticize because it just wants to; but also gives the reasons for criticism, provides solutions to the problem, and dwells on positive stories for development, social harmony and economic growth.”Human rights remains at the forefront of the international development debate, as the world’s least developed countries and emerging economies grapple with the conflict between maintaining social cohesion, providing infrastructure and basic services, and meeting conditionalities set by the West. Citing budgetary constraints, many struggling countries resist pressure from more developed economies to toe the human rights line, arguing that providing basic needs such as water and electricity is more important than curbing carbon emissions. Another compelling argument of developing countries is that current world powers observed few or no human rights during their industrialization processes, and are, therefore, hypocritical to place such high demands on poor countries.

first_imgMr. Karnwea in an ‘Honored’ Gown at the Launch of Liberia Forest Sector Project at Monrovia City Hall; and partial view of the audienceA US$37.5 million Government of Norway grant intended to manage the Liberian forest sector was launched on March 14 in Monrovia, attended by stakeholders and the Forestry Development Authority (FDA).The program was held at the Monrovia City Hall.Speaking on the theme: “Managing Forest to Benefit all Liberians,” World Bank Liberia Country Manager Ms. Larisa Leshchenko said in the Country Partnership Strategy, the Bank will remain engaged in the forest sector and policy dialogue.She added that the grant is a means for the Bank to support the Government of Liberia’s 2006 National Forest Reform Law to manage its protected forest area network.She said the Liberia Forest Sector Project is a first-time initiative that has the dual objective of forest sector management and realizing the sector’s contribution to mitigating the impacts of climate change.Ms. Leshchenko pointed out that healthy forests and landscapes can help Liberians realize real reductions in global emissions in the short and long terms.The World Bank official stressed that these emission reductions can and should be achieved in a way that maintain transparency and environmental integrity.She intimated that the World Bank has reinforced its strategy to support national efforts in the sustainable management of the country’s forests.In order to meet this goal, Mr. Leshchenko said in April this year, the Board of the World Bank Group would endorse the Forest Action Plan.Ms. Leshchenko disclosed that such a move would aim to integrate the sustainable management of forests more fully into development and define priorities for the World Bank Group for the next five years.“This project we are launching today directly responds to the Forests Action Plan…forests and landscapes as key pillars in our new Climate Change Action Plan,” Ms. Leshchenko said.In a statement, the Executive Director of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Madam Anyaa Vohiri, pledged her agency’s cooperation in the implementation of various components of the project.In remarks, the Norwegian Government representative, Arild Skedsmo, urged all implementing partners connected to the Liberia Forest Sector Project to ensure the practical implementation of all components of the initiative in the best interest of all Liberians.The Norwegian official also expressed the hope that every effort would be made to ensure that all partners work around the clock to ensure the protection of Liberia’s forests.FDA outgoing managing director Harrison Karnwea urged partners and stakeholders to continue to exhibit commitment and support to the worthy cause of protecting the country’s forests.Mr. Karnwea said there were widespread speculations in Liberia that the letter of intent signed between the FDA and Norway was intended to stop commercial logging.He, however, clarified that the letter of intent with the Government of Norway was intended to sustainably manage Liberia’s forests for the benefit of Liberia.Karnwea urged the in-coming manager and team to step in their footsteps and work with Liberians, especially lawmakers, for the successful implementation of the Liberia Forest Sector Project.He extended thanks and appreciation to the Liberian government for the opportunities afforded him to serve the people and the state in different capacities over the years.Saah A. David Jr National Coordinator of LFSP in Liberia, provided synopsis on the various mechanisms on how the initiative will benefit Liberians, especially dependents of forest communities.Mr. David underscored the need for the support and cooperation of all line ministries and agencies connected to the forest initiative.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Drug plan sign-ups beat forecast

Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., compared the government’s effort to its response to Hurricane Katrina and called it “slow, inept and dangerous.” Leavitt acknowledged that the program was not working for some. He said the administration was working feverishly to address concerns that tens of thousands of people who can least afford to go without their medication are struggling. He said he would begin a tour on Wednesday of numerous states – Oregon, California, Texas, Arkansas, Florida and Wisconsin among them – “to find out how things are working in the field.” The new drug benefit began on Jan. 1. About 42 million senior citizens and the disabled are eligible to enroll in private health plans that will subsidize their prescription drug costs. Advocates for the elderly poor and disabled have raised concerns that some senior citizens are not showing up as being enrolled in plans and, in other instances, are being charged hundreds of dollars for medicine that should not cost more than $5. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – More than 2 million people have voluntarily enrolled for the new prescription drug benefit in the past month, exceeding projections by the Bush administration. Last month, the administration announced that about 21 million people would get drug coverage through the program. About 1 million of that group had voluntarily enrolled. The rest were automatically enrolled because of their participation in other programs, such as Medicaid for those with low incomes, or because they continued to get coverage through their employers, which could start receiving government subsidies toward a prescription drug benefit for the elderly. Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt touted the enrollment numbers on Monday as good news for a program that has stumbled in the early going. About 20 states have been compelled to help pay for medicine that many senior citizens and the disabled could not get through their new coverage. “The program is working for the vast majority of participants quite well,” Leavitt said. “We’re filling more than a million prescriptions a day.” last_img read more
