​Save the Corporations…I mean Children

​Save the Corporations…I mean Children | Global politics | Scoop.it
When Save the Children chose to bestow the Global Legacy Award on Tony Blair, the charity inadvertently revealed the dark underbelly of NGO activity.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

A study conducted in Georgia, Moldova and the Ukraine revealed that only one-fifth of NGOs agreed that their strength came from their membership base. The researchers concluded that “the elitist nature of NGOs” could be attributed to the fact that they received most of their funding from foreign sources, citing frequent NGO meetings with foreign embassies. These kinds of NGOs are sometimes called “AstroTurf”, because they don’t have any real support – they’re merely a front organizations meant to pursue the agenda of whoever holds the checkbook, often without the full knowledge of those actually doing the work on the ground.

Duma asks European body to protect Russian reporters in Ukraine

Duma asks European body to protect Russian reporters in Ukraine | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Lower House has addressed the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) asking to protect Russian journalists in Ukraine from attacks by nationalist radicals, but official Kiev is turning a blind eye to the request.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The attacks on Russian journalists in Fascist Ukraine have predictably become racist. What is the more outrageous is the eagerness of Ukrainian "journalists" to take part in such a disgusting thuggish mob.

Half-blind UK widow commits suicide after incapacity benefit cut

Half-blind UK widow commits suicide after incapacity benefit cut | Global politics | Scoop.it
A partially-blind widow, who suffered crippling back pain for over a decade, committed suicide after her incapacity benefit was cut because state assessors claimed she was fit to work.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

This is the misery neoliberalism is throwing people to, instead of compassion and help, the governments give the taxpayers' money to wicked evaluating firms, whose interest is to declare people unworthy for their welfare benefits, and so justify their salaries.

Activists advocate criminal charges for child porn possession

Activists advocate criminal charges for child porn possession | Global politics | Scoop.it
Members of Russia’s Public Chamber have prepared several proposals on how to protect women and children from exploitation. These include criminal prosecution for possession of child pornography.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The weak have to be protected by the state, children in the first place. And not only from "gay propaganda", but also from heterosexual predators. I'm sure that if the law which was so criticized in the West is completed as a general protection of minors of age, the opportunistic critics in the West will have to calm down.

​Cameron mocks Tony Blair’s Save the Children Award, charity scrutinized | Global politics | Scoop.it
Only a day after an online petition calling for Tony Blair’s Save the Children Global Legacy Award to be revoked gained over 100,000 signatures, Prime Minister David Cameron has called Blair’s choice for the accolade “remarkable.”
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Did you know a faster way to save the children's predicament than killing them? Therefore, doesn't actually Blair deserve the price? Don't spare a penny for Save the Children, this organization needs nothing, they already have the big sociopaths' sympathy.
