The murder that shattered Holland's liberal dream

The murder that shattered Holland's liberal dream | Human rights | Scoop.it
Jason Burke reports from Amsterdam on the anger in a once-tolerant Netherlands over the killing of a director whose film attacked Islam.
Jeff Makana's insight:
Am in support of the Akasha family, recently met the widow from their family and very saddened how the real drug barrons(Haroun Mwau and the likes) are walking in Kenya scotfree with impunity while others are used to give the international community a false carrot face to seem to be curbing drug trade and proliferation of small arms. Jennifer Salma Gibon You are in my prayers and will amplify your cause. May God protect the orphaned children and may God bless you and yours, it was a pleasure to meet you and humbled at the lengths you went to helping me without revealing that you even spoke Swahili.! Hope you feeling better.!

Video: From refugee to lawyer

Video: From refugee to lawyer | Human rights | Scoop.it
Seth Médiateur Tuyisabe arrived in Switzerland as a refugee at the age of nine. Now he is taking exams to become a lawyer. This is his story.


Civil war started in Burundi in 1993, and an attempt was made on the life of Seth’s father, a bank employee, who was forced to flee. He went to Switzerland, where fellow members of a Catholic community provided shelter. Back in Burundi, a close friend was blown up and killed by a road mine while using the family car.

Seth, his mother and siblings managed to get the last flight out of the country. They fled to Cameroon, where they stayed for two years, before joining Seth’s father in Switzerland. After arriving here, they lived in various asylum centres before finally settling down in Lausanne.

Coming from Burundi, they were amazed to see snow, a vast public transport network, people running for buses, public play parks, and the way in which some dogs are dressed up in clothes. 

Seth had already learnt French in Cameroon, which was a major help in integrating in Switzerland. But for him, the key to feeling at home was the warm reception he received from the people he first met here. Seth is an officer in the Swiss militia army.

In Moutier, "Bernxit" prevails after all the suspense

In Moutier, "Bernxit" prevails after all the suspense | Human rights | Scoop.it
An historic vote puts an end to one of the oldest political conflicts in Switzerland. The town of Moutier will join the canton of Jura.
Jeff Makana's insight:
TToday is a sad day for me a adopted grandchild from Berne, as a Jurassien. Berne the capitol having that links with Jura put it on the international scene opening new market skills that will disappear as sell JURA SALT and JURA CEMENT! When I saw the Russian flag on that Moutier Mountain I knew we lost it!

Where can I steal a Canton Berne flag and hang it on top of St. Mercel. Loosing Berne is heavy on my mind, It's loosing Switzerland if you know really the value of a Capitol of a sovereign Neutral country-! Anyways in the home of my abusive grandparents even freedom of expression is surpressed when militants censor my outakes on the Moutier votation. Bad!

Video: Swiss aid brings clean water to North Korea

Video: Swiss aid brings clean water to North Korea | Human rights | Scoop.it
North Korea's totalitarian regime has made it one of the most secretive societies in the world. However, Switzerland is one of just a few humanitarian aid-providers who have been granted access to the state. (SRF, swissinfo.ch)

The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) has been working with North Korea in this respect for more than 20 years.

One project involved bringing drinking water to thousands of households, while another promoted sustainable food production and protection against soil erosion on the slopes of hilly farmlands. 


The Swiss also distribute milk powder through the United Nations World Food Programme.

The SDC's humanitarian efforts in North Korea started in 1995 in response to the famine that affected the local population in the 1990’s.
