We are grateful for the sector’s continued positive response to the recommendations we make and I look forward to working closely with fundraising organisations to maintain the high standards of fundraising practice we see today.” Tagged with: door to door fundraising Fundraising Regulator  443 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Public complaints about door-to-door charity fundraising have decreased by nearly 22% over the past year, while those about addressed mail and fundraising at outdoor events have risen. The figures come from the Fundraising Regulator’s Annual Complaints Report 2018/19, released today.The report collates the number of complaints reported by 58 charities that spend more than £5 million per year on fundraising, as well as the regulator’s own complaints data. The charities in the sample reported 4,094 complaints about door-to-door fundraising between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019, down from 5,239 in the previous year.Individuals cited the behaviour of fundraisers and knocking at an inappropriate time as the top reasons for their complaints.Other methods of fundraising also saw a significant fall in complaints:Clothing collections: down 55% from 2,478 complaints in 2017/18 to 1,110 in 2018/19Online advertising: down 16% from 1,517 complaints in 2017/18 to 1,278 in 2018/19Email fundraising: down 15% from 1,277 complaints in 2017/18 to 1,080 in 2018/19According to the regulator, while complaints about door-to-door charity fundraising have fallen significantly since 2017/18, it is the second most complained about fundraising method overall. The most complained about fundraising practice reported by the 58 charities in the sample was addressed mail. This method generated 5,619 complaints, which is an increase of nearly 20% on the figure (4,709) reported in 2017/18.Fundraising at outdoor events completes the top three most complained about fundraising practices with 2,054 complaints: a 43% increase on the previous year.While the sector reported a significant fall (55%) in the number of complaints about clothing collections, the Fundraising Regulator received more about this method than any other.Overall, complaints made to the Fundraising Regulator itself decreased by 33% on the previous year, with it receiving 737 between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019.Of these, it completed investigations into 82 cases.

RSF joins statement calling on US government to insist on accountability for Khashoggi murder

first_imgNews Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 RSF_en Receive email alerts June 8, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Notwithstanding public and Congressional outrage and the reported findings of the CIA, the Trump administration appears to be engaged in a cover-up on behalf of the Saudi government.  On October 15, 2018, without offering any evidence, President Trump told reporters “rogue killers” could have been responsible for the murder.  On November 20, 2018, he issued a statement entitled “On Standing with Saudi Arabia,” in which he appeared to accept Saudi leaders’ blanket denials of involvement in the murder.  On November 28, 2018, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters, “I do believe I’ve read every piece of intelligence . . . .  There is no direct reporting connecting the crown prince to the order to murder Jamal Khashoggi.”  The CIA’s assessment and other records relating to responsibility for the murder continue to be withheld from the public. The public also remains in the dark about what the U.S. government knew about the murder or previous threats to Khashoggi’s life and, dependent on that information, whether the U.S. government took any steps to warn him, as required by law.  To date, there is no public indication that the Trump administration intends to respond to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s October 2018 request. Signed,Reporters Without BordersHuman Rights FirstHuman Rights WatchOpen Society Justice InitiativePEN AmericaCommittee to Protect Journalists Follow the news on Middle East – North Africa Related documents joint_khashoggi_statement_english.pdfPDF – 393.33 KB Help by sharing this information Saudi Arabia’s conduct in the Khashoggi case is in keeping with its broader pattern of persecuting dissidents, activists, journalists, and independent clerics.  In May 2018, just weeks before the Saudi authorities lifted the ban on women driving, authorities arrested a number of prominent women’s rights activists and accused several of them of grave crimes, such as treason, that appear to be directly related to their activism.  As of this writing, at least ten women remained detained without charge, though some anticipated charges could carry prison terms of up to 20 years.  Human rights organizations reported in November that Saudi interrogators tortured at least four of the women, including by administering electric shocks, whipping the women on their thighs, and forcible hugging and kissing.  Saudi prosecutors also escalated their longstanding campaign against dissidents by seeking the death penalty against detainees on charges that related to nothing more than peaceful activism and dissent. Moreover, Saudi Arabia has continued to use counterterrorism regulations to suppress political expression and dissent; over a dozen prominent activists who were convicted on charges arising from their peaceful activities are currently serving long prison sentences.  These actions have created an even more repressive climate for journalists in the country.In light of the above, the undersigned organizations call on Congress and the Trump administration to support:Public disclosure of the February 8, 2019, presidential determination required under law concerning responsibility for the Khashoggi murder and what sanctions the President intends to impose on those found culpable.Public disclosure of CIA records relating to Khashoggi’s killing, including the CIA’s assessment of responsibility for his murder as well as records relating to the U.S. government’s duty to warn him of the threat to his life.An effective, independent, international investigation into the circumstances of and responsibility for Khashoggi’s murder.Immediate release of journalists, dissidents, activists, and clerics detained for the peaceful expression of their views in Saudi Arabia. On October 2, 2018, Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and a U.S. resident who had been a vocal critic of the Saudi government and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, disappeared after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Amidst repeated assertions by Saudi authorities that Mr. Khashoggi had left the Consulate alive, on October 10, 2018, a bipartisan group of 22 senators, including the Chairman and Ranking Member of  the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, invoked a provision of the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act requiring that President Donald Trump determine which individuals the U.S. government had found to be responsible for any gross violation of Khashoggi’s internationally recognized human rights  and provide a report on whether he intends to impose sanctions on them. June 9, 2021 Find out more Saudi ArabiaUnited StatesMiddle East – North Africa Americas International bodies center_img February 5, 2019 – Updated on February 7, 2019 RSF joins statement calling on US government to insist on accountability for Khashoggi murder After repeatedly altering its explanation concerning Khashoggi’s disappearance, on October 19, 2018, the Saudi government finally acknowledged that he had been killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.  On November 16, 2018, the Washington Post reported that the CIA had concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul, an assessment in which officials are reported to have “high confidence.”  On December 13, 2018, the Senate unanimously approved a resolution holding the Crown Prince responsible for Khashoggi’s murder. The presidential determination and report required under the Global Magnitsky Act is due to be provided no later than February 8, 2019. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) today joined Human Rights First, Open Society Justice Initiative, Human Rights Watch, PEN America, and Committee to Protect Journalists to express deep concern about the lack of transparency and accountability relating to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the persecution of other journalists and dissidents in Saudi Arabia. The organizations are calling on both the United States Congress and the Trump administration to support a number of measures to address these concerns. to go further Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s criminal proceedings against 11 individuals accused of killing Mr. Khashoggi have been a sham.  Significantly, instead of arresting the most senior officials accused of involvement in the plot to target Khashoggi, including the former royal court adviser, Saud al-Qahtani, and the deputy intelligence chief, Ahmed al-Assiri, Saudi authorities have merely announced their resignations.  The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has stated that the trial was “not sufficient” and called for an independent investigation with international involvement, something the special rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, Agnes Callamard, took it upon herself to organize.  A coalition of human rights and media organizations had previously called on Turkey to urgently request that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres launch a UN investigation, though Guterres has been reluctant to get involved.  Moreover, more than one hundred prominent writers co-signed a letter to Guterres calling for an independent UN investigation.

We therefore ask President Alpha Condé to send his supporters a clear message that violence against journalists will not be tolerated.”Last June, the High Authority for Communication (HAC) issued a directive asking the media “to refrain from using opinion genres such as editorials, commentaries or columns” during the run-up to the presidential election.It triggered such an outcry that the HAC issued an amended version that nonetheless continued to impose disturbing restrictions on freedom of information.Guinea is ranked 102nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

These technologies include: valves to selectively control oil and gas flow from different geological formations in a well; single-phase pumping motors for continuous operation at the bottom of deep wells; sensors and electronics for downhole deployment; and integrated management systems for monitoring temperature, pressure and flow rates in deep wells and assessing the health of drilling operations.This new collaboration will benefit NASA by further advancing technologies that could one day be used for exploring other planets, and will also promote commercialization of technologies developed for space exploration. The partnership will help Chevron develop its energy resources to enable a better energy future for all of Â us.“NASA and JPL are highly acclaimed national treasures, and Chevron is proud to collaborate with them to unlock new energy potential,” said John McDonald, Chevron’s corporate vice president and chief technology officer. “This alliance is an opportunity to bridge public- and private-sector technology and research to discover oil and natural gas volumes that are found in deep remote reservoirs. In many ways, the research is akin to deep space exploration, making the missions of OUR two organizations highly complementary.”As NASA’s lead center for robotic exploration of the solar system, JPL has a wide-ranging charter that also includes active programs in Earth science, astronomy and physics, and technology development. The demands of space missions provide the impetus to JPL scientists and engineers to push the boundaries of design and technology to achieve smaller size, better performance, and less power consumption in a cost-constrained environment. Many technologies developed at JPL, from hardware and software to materials, have direct applications right here on Earth.The National Space Technology Applications Office (NSTA) has been established to develop a sustaining business base through expanded relations with non-NASA sponsors.  NSTA develops collaborations with elements of the four national space sectors: military, intelligence, civil and commercial. Each of these sectors is responsible for specific development of partnerships that expand and enhance the NASA/JPL-Caltech technology base. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.Chevron is one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies, with subsidiaries that conduct business worldwide. Chevron explores for, produces and transports crude oil and natural gas; refines, markets and distributes transportation fuels and lubricants; manufactures and sells petrochemical products; generates power and produces geothermal energy; provides energy efficiency solutions; and develops the energy resources of the future, including biofuels.Caltech and NASA’s Office of the Chief Technologist seek to transfer technology developed for space into the commercial marketplace, yielding economic benefits and quality of life improvements for people here on Earth.More information about NASA is online at .
