LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - More than 100,000 people have signed a petition demanding that Save the Children revoke its annual Global Legacy Award to former British prime minister Tony Blair, a decision also condemned by many of the international charity's staff.

Save the Children's U.S. branch, which presented the award in New York last week, said it was made to recognise Blair's role in persuading the G8 group of richest nations to "make poverty history" at the 2005 Gleneagles Summit and getting them to agree to debt relief of $40 billion for the poorest nations.

"This Country Values Property Over People": #Ferguson Activist Speaks Out as Protests Spread -USA - 12 mn

http://democracynow.org - Protests are set to begin for a third day in a row in Ferguson, Missouri over a grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for killing unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. On Tuesday, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon deployed more than 2,000 National Guardsmen to patrol the St. Louis area. Police repeatedly fired smoke bombs and tear gas to scatter protesters gathered near Ferguson City Hall. Police said 44 people were arrested. Meanwhile demonstrations over the Michael Brown case spread across the country from Los Angeles to New York. We go to Ferguson to speak with Tory Russell, one of the founders of the group Hands Up United and a member of the St. Louis-based Organization for Black Struggle.

Is this an attempt to whitewash fascism, or merely a desperate maneuver to protect the Kiev regime? CrossTalking with Dmitry Babich, Alexander Mercouris and Nebojsa Malic.

#NGO @SavetheChildren staff furious over ‘global legacy’ award for (war criminal..) #TonyBlair - The Guardian #charity

Internal letter signed by almost 200 staff members says award is ‘morally reprehensible’ and endangers STC’s credibility globally

"...

According to an email sent last week by Krista Armstrong, the charity’s global media manager, to senior colleagues, STC has received a “high volume of complaints and negative reactions regarding the award”.

The email acknowledged that Blair “is a hugely controversial and divisive figure in many parts of the world” and listed a number of questions that had been raised by STC staff, soliciting possible responses from her colleagues.

The first question was: “Why would Save the Children chose (sic) to provide one of its most prestigious award – ‘a global legacy award’ to a man accused of being a war criminal?”

In response, Eileen Burke, STC’s director of media and communications in the US, circulated “a line” explaining Blair was selected for the award for debt relief work and the Make Poverty History campaign.

“Otherwise we are not in a position to respond to some of the geopolitical questions below,” she wrote in a separate email...."

http://democracynow.org -An Ohio man has been freed from prison after spending 39 years behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit. Ricky Jackson, a 59-year old African-American man, had been jailed since 1975 on a murder conviction. The prosecution’s case was based on the testimony of a 13-year-old witness. After a 2011 investigation, the witness recanted his testimony, saying he had implicated Jackson and two others under police coercion. The witness, Eddy Vernon, said police had fed him the story and threatened to arrest his parents if he didn’t cooperate. On Friday, Ricky Jackson was freed after prosecutors dropped the case. With nearly four decades wrongfully behind bars, Jackson is the longest-held U.S. prisoner to be exonerated. He joins us today along with his lawyer, Brian Howe, a staff attorney with the Ohio Innocence Project.
