Why 'natural' beekeeping could save our honey-making friends - Telegraph

Why 'natural' beekeeping could save our honey-making friends - Telegraph | Eugenics | Scoop.it

The honeybee is becoming an endangered species, with the finger of blame pointing in multiple directions. Wild honeybees are nearly extinct in the UK and from 1985-2005 there was a 53 per cent decline in managed honeybee colony numbers. Parasites and disease, climate change and air pollution all have an impact on bee health, but perhaps the most serious of all is the impact of pesticides.

 

Heidi Herrmann is one of a growing throng of natural beekeepers. She is trustee and co-founder of the Natural Beekeeping Trust, and has been keeping bees for years. Instead of following traditional practice, this movement challenges long-standing methods and processes. Like other members, Heidi has adapted her bee care to suit the bees rather than her own needs.

Global Report on Trafficking in Persons

Global Report on Trafficking in Persons | Eugenics | Scoop.it

Based on data gathered from 155 countries, it offers the first global assessment of the scope of human trafficking and what is being done to fight it. It includes: an overview of trafficking patterns; legal steps taken in response; and country-specific information on reported cases of trafficking in persons, victims, and prosecutions.

 

At the launch of the Report in New York, the Executive Director of UNODC, Antonio Maria Costa said that "many governments are still in denial. There is even neglect when it comes to either reporting on, or prosecuting cases of human trafficking". He pointed to the fact that while the number of convictions for human trafficking is increasing, two out of every five countries covered by the UNODC Report had not recorded a single conviction.

 

According to the Report, the most common form of human trafficking (79%) is sexual exploitation. The victims of sexual exploitation are predominantly women and girls. Surprisingly, in 30% of the countries which provided information on the gender of traffickers, women make up the largest proportion of traffickers. In some parts of the world, women trafficking women is the norm.

 

The second most common form of human trafficking is forced labour (18%), although this may be a misrepresentation because forced labour is less frequently detected and reported than trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Cotton slavery

Cotton slavery | Eugenics | Scoop.it

It is difficult to know for certain that the clothes you wear are not tainted by slavery (Lucy Mangan: how many slaves work for you?, 5 January). Most of the cotton exported from Uzbekistan, mentioned in the article, ends up in Europe and we – often unknowingly – are complicit in forced labour simply by buying a T-shirt. Exceptionally, the practice of state-sponsored forced labour in Uzbekistan means that we are calling on retailers to avoid the use of Uzbek cotton. However, in the majority of situations we would strongly urge consumers not to boycott certain goods or brands as it can hurt those in slavery-like conditions. Instead, consumers can play an important role in ending modern-day slavery by putting pressure on governments to make sure laws are in place and enforced to protect vulnerable people, and on business to make sure forced labour is not present in their supply chains.

 

Learning from the experience – not least from ending the transatlantic slave trade – we at Anti-Slavery International believe in the power of public pressure. www.antislavery.org/cottoncrimes.

South Africa Facing White Genocide, Total Communist Takeover

South Africa Facing White Genocide, Total Communist Takeover | Eugenics | Scoop.it

While most of the world refuses to acknowledge what is happening in largely communist-controlled South Africa, the non-profit group Genocide Watch declared last month that preparations for genocidal atrocities against white South African farmers were underway and that the early phases of genocide had possibly already begun. In the long run, Genocide Watch chief Dr. Gregory Stanton explained, powerful communist forces also hope to abolish private-property ownership and crush all potential resistance. 

According to experts and official figures, at least 3,000 white farmers in South Africa, known as Boers, have been brutally massacred over the last decade. Many more, including children and even infants, have also been raped or tortured so savagely that mere words could not possibly convey the horror. And the problem is growing worse, international human rights monitors and South African exiles say.

The Screeching Kettle: The Non-human Genocide

The term "genocide" was coined in 1943 by a Jewish-Polish lawyer who survived the Nazi Holocaust only with his brother (everyone else in his family was slaughtered). In January 1951, Article Two of the United Nations (UN) Convention on Genocide was established, defining "genocide" as "acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group".
