Derechos humanos y dignidad: un sacerdote episcopal en Bruselas lucha…

first_img An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud: Crossing continents and cultures with the most beautiful instrument you’ve never heard Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC El Rdo. Mark Barwick (segundo de derecha a izquierda) presenta ante el Parlamento Europeo los resultados de un informa sobre violaciones de los derechos humanos en Irán. Foto por cortesía de DHSF.[Episcopal News Service] Llevar a cabo la visión de Dios de una creación renovada “que respete la dignidad y la belleza de toda persona individual en este planeta” puede ser una meta tremenda, pero el Rdo. Mark Barwick vive en función de ese sueño de un mundo reconciliado.Radicado en Bruselas, Bélgica, el sacerdote episcopal dice que su trabajo como asesor político de Derechos Humanos sin Fronteras (DHSF), una organización no gubernamental y no religiosa, “es parte de esa recreación y renovación de las sociedades humanas”.Como sacerdote asociado de Todos los Santos [All Saints] en Waterloo, y vicario de una pequeña congregación en Charleroi —parroquias en Bélgica que forman parte de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa— Barwick siempre ha encontrado la necesidad de que su fe se exprese a través de la justicia, la paz y la dignidad humana para todas las personas. “Una fe que no esté vinculada a estos valores carece de interés para mí”, afirma “[El apóstol] Santiago dijo que la fe sin obras es muerta. La fe sin un auténtico compromiso con la dignidad humana no es creíble”.Fundada en 1989, DHSF colabora estrechamente con muchas instituciones europeas, en particular con el Parlamento Europeo, en organizar conferencias estratégicas y talleres de capacitación, en buscar y compartir información y en trabajar directamente con los responsables de la política en multitud de asuntos que atañen a los derechos humanos.La Unión Europea, compuesta por 28 estados, “es fundamentalmente un proyecto de pacificación, para crear un comunidad de naciones más humana y basada en la justicia, la dignidad humana y el respeto a los derechos humanos fundamentales”, expresa Barwick, de 58 años, mientras bebe café a sorbos junto a la estación del metro Schuman, a la sombra del Parlamento Europeo.“La UE como la conocemos hoy nació de la guerra. El siglo XX fue la escena de una terrible brutalidad”, dice. “Bélgica fue un campo de sangre”.Luego de la segunda guerra mundial, una convergencia de naciones europeas se unió para decir ‘no más’ al derramamiento de sangre ‘y para explorar las formas de crear una integración política y económica que tenga sentido en nuestra diversidad y que pueda formar una comunidad más próspera y pacífica”, dice Barwick.Esta fue la visión de Robert Schuman —el político francés de mediados del siglo XX que le da nombre a la estación del metro Schuman— que está muy vigente en la actualidad cuando los derechos humanos se sitúan como una primera prioridad para la Unión Europea, la cual convirtió a DHSF —miembro activo de la Red de Derechos Humanos y Democracia— en un instrumento clave de asesoría y orientación mientras prepara debates políticos y estableces normas a seguir.La libertad de cultos y creencias, la promoción de la democracia y el imperio de la ley son importantes prioridades de DHSF, y muchos responsables de [la política] europea encuentran inapreciable la labor de la organización en estos terrenos, agrega Barwick.Por ejemplo, recientemente, DHSF colaboró con otros [organismos] al objeto de ofrecer [talleres de] capacitación sobre libertad de cultos o creencias para el personal diplomático del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores. “Es acerca de la libertad de pensamiento en realidad”, apunta Barwick, citando el Artículo 18 del Pacto Internacional sobre Derechos Civiles y Políticos, adoptado por la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas en 1966, como el fundamento de la labor de su organización. “Éste es uno de nuestros caballos de batalla. Resulta muy claro que todo el mundo deber tener dignidad y libertad de pensar y creer lo que desee.“La libertad de conciencia incluye el sistema de creencias. Esa es la primera libertad de la cual se derivan todas las otras: libertad de asociación, de expresión, etc.”, añade. “La dignidad humana es un don de Dios”.Pero en muchos países las personas no son libres de cambiar de religión, y en algunos les imponen sentencias de muerte. Esta realidad hace el trabajo de Barwick aún más importante, especialmente en medio de los malentendidos respecto a fe y cultura y del creciente extremismo y persecución religiosa que impera en muchos países del Oriente Medio, así como asiáticos y africanos.Un objetivo principal de DHSF este año ha sido el de las personas que se encuentran encarceladas o sujetas a sentencias de muerte debido a su fe, en países como Irán, Pakistán, Arabia Saudita y Sudán. La organización compiló una lista de prisioneros que incluye a centenares de personas que se encuentran tras las rejas debido a leyes que prohíben o restringen sus derechos básicos a la libertad de cultos o de creencias.Como instructor en temas de diversidad, Barwick está comprometido a aumentar la conciencia y comprensión de estas violaciones de derechos humanos, y espera resultar un catalizador para el cambio y la defensa social.Barwick se mudó a Bruselas hace 12 años para asumir un cargo en el movimiento catolicorromano Pax Christi, que se concentra fundamentalmente en problemas africanos y en zonas de conflicto, y ha estado trabajando con DHSF sólo durante dos años. Con anterioridad ha fungido como director regional de Pan para el Mundo, [institución] que tiene su sede en Washington, DC.En los círculos de Bruselas, a Barwick se le conoce por su experiencia en el encuentro entre religión y personas homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales, y él se esfuerza en combatir la polarización que existe entre fe y sexualidad.“En esferas políticas, uno ve con frecuencia a los humanistas y los secularistas de un lado, y luego, arrinconado y medroso, el pequeño número de personas religiosas, y estoy tratando de reconciliar a estos grupos”, afirmó. “Pero hay comunidades de fe acogedoras. Trabajamos con ese movible estamento intermedio y también con aquellos con convicciones religiosas y actitudes excluyentes hacia personas LGBT. Estamos intentando cambiar eso… tratando de encontrar valores conectivos que puedan aplicarse a todo el mundo”.En el curso del último año, Barwick ha servido también como asesor e instructor del Centro de Budapest de Prevención Internacional de Genocidio y Atrocidades Masivas, cuya labor se centra en la prevención de la violencia y en la reducción de tensiones en Hungría, Polonia, la República Checa y Eslovaquia.Reflexionando sobre su trabajo con Pax Christi, Barwick dijo que gran parte de su tiempo en África estaba dedicado a estimular el diálogo entre grupos beligerantes después de la guerra. En Liberia, por ejemplo, él trabajó con un ONG local para reconstruir las relaciones entre el grupo étnico lorma, que incluye a tradicionalistas cristianos, y el mandinga, que es predominantemente musulmán. “Con el tiempo estos grupos dialogarían sobre cómo podíamos cambiar esta situación —no abordando los problemas del pasado, sino la manera en que podíamos moldear un futuro mejor”.Mirando hacia delante, como miembro activo de la Plataforma Europea sobre Intolerancia y Discriminación Religiosas, DHSF planea, en 2015, ayudar a auspiciar una conferencia sobre libertad de cultos o creencias y democracia en el centro laboral, un tema que ha tenido gran notoriedad cuando algunas compañías europeas han tomado la iniciativa de prohibirles a las mujeres musulmanas que usen la hijab mientras están en el trabajo.“No se trata sólo de que haya una visible expresión de fe en el centro de trabajo, sino que también afecta el ambiente de la incertidumbre económica”, apunta. Percibimos que [nuestra labor] ejercerá alguna [fuerza de] tracción en el Parlamento. De manera que intentamos ofrecer conferencias que la gente encuentre útil en su propia agenda legislativa”.Barwick dice que con frecuencia se pregunta si el quehacer diario produce algún cambio significativo, “pero luego suceden cosas: toman una decisión, cambian leyes, citan nuestros informes. El marco legal en el ámbito de la UE siempre está evolucionando, y somos parte de eso. Las instituciones de la UE deben escuchar a la sociedad civil, de manera que tenemos una auténtica oportunidad de configurar la política pública que humanice el mundo para todos nosotros”. — Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Anglican Communion rejects takeover claims by Egyptian protestant group

first_img Submit a Press Release Anglican Communion rejects takeover claims by Egyptian protestant group Rector Smithfield, NC New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books The international leadership of the worldwide Anglican Communion has today rejected claims made by a protestant group in Egypt over the status of the Episcopal/Anglican Province of Alexandria.The Episcopal/Anglican Province of Alexandria is the newest province of the Anglican Communion and was formed from the former Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa in the Episcopal Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East.The Secretary General of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, said:“Contrary to statement made yesterday by the Protestant Church in Egypt (PCE), the Episcopal / Anglican Province of Alexandria is an Anglican Church and an integral part of the Anglican Communion. And it always has been an Anglican Church and an integral part of the Anglican Communion.“The Anglican presence in Egypt began in 1819 with clergy sent by the Church Missionary Society who worked in partnership with the Coptic Orthodox Church. The first Anglican Church building – St Mark’s Church in Alexandria – was consecrated in 1839. And what was to become the Episcopal / Anglican Cathedral in Cairo began as a small parish church in 1876.“In those early days the Anglican Church in Egypt was under the direct leadership of the Archbishop of Canterbury. Over the decades, the Anglican Church in Egypt has grown in size and status. It was transferred from the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem; before becoming part of what was then the new Episcopal/Anglican Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East in 1976.Earlier this year the Anglican Church in Egypt – along with the other nine countries in north Africa and the Horn of Africa which it serves – left the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East to become its own self-governing Province – the 41st Province of the worldwide Anglican Communion.”Reiterating the fact that the Episcopal / Anglican Diocese of Egypt is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon added: “the Episcopal/ Anglican Diocese of Egypt is part of the Episcopal / Anglican Province of Alexandria which is a Province of the worldwide Anglican Communion and can’t be under any other denomination.” Tags Submit a Job Listing Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Washington, DC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Bath, NC Rector Albany, NY Youth Minister Lorton, VA Anglican Communion Posted Jul 17, 2020 Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Back to Press Releases Featured Events Submit an Event Listing Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Charlie Living is the largest newly-built predominantly residential project in Friedrichstadt, in direct proximity to former Checkpoint Charlie. The open ensemble of four new buildings fills one of the last open lots of Berlin Mitte with its former strip of the Berlin Wall. The Graft design with its high public permeability of accessible existing paths through to the inner area of the complex connecting with the neighbouring E-Werk and hotel on Mauerstraße, stands in contrast with the otherwise closed block structure of the immediate vicinity. Against this backdrop of the Martin Gropius Building, the State Parliament Building, the “Topography of Terror” Memorial with its original pieces of the Wall, Friedrichstraße with Checkpoint Charlie and the Axel Springer Campus, the new residential ensemble marks a highly liveable dwelling in one of the most historically significant areas of Berlin. With a unit mix of 243 3-7 roomed apartments ranging from 40 to 300 m2 in size, and 48 “serviced apartments,” the complex constitutes one of the largest, newly-built residential developments at this location since the 1987 International Building Exhibition IBA.Save this picture!© BTTR GmbHSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© BTTR GmbHThe residential complex consists of three eight-storey main buildings – Block A, B, and C and a cluster of townhouses situated within the inner block, D, which are slightly inclined towards each other, modelled polygonally and freely connected to each other by means of a green internal courtyard. This publicly accessible courtyard forms an oasis within the hustle and bustle of Berlin’s historic heart and provides pedestrians with a short-cut through its block-like structure to Mauerstraße and the middle of Friedrichstraße. All buildings convey an individual geometry and have a distinctive surface and façade concept which provides all apartments with generous loggias or balconies as transitory spaces between outside and inside.Save this picture!© BTTR GmbHBuilding A accommodates an Apartment Hotel and lobby together with retail units on the ground floor, as well as apartments situated in the side wing, opening up to the courtyard. Along Zimmerstraße Building A stands out with its graphite-coloured, relief-like façade. Above the double-story plinth and distributed over five floors, street-facing studio-apartments with bay windows of varying projecting depths as extensions of the living area, allow views from Zimmerstraße all the way down to Checkpoint Charlie.Save this picture!© BTTR GmbHThese stepped bay windows emerge increasingly from the façade to the west to mark a deflection point into the internal courtyard. Since on the west side a future joint towards a new building is foreseen on the development plan, the main access to the inner complex was able to be repositioned “around the corner” on the western side of the site. As a result, an acoustic shielding of the courtyard areas has been achieved while retaining the greatest possible openness. The side wing of Building A serves to block off the long firewall of the neighbouring buildings to the east, orienting a large portion of the rental apartments westward towards the green courtyard. Conversely, many of these units benefit from the building joint which brings afternoon sun into the courtyard.Save this picture!© BTTR GmbHSave this picture!FacadeSave this picture!© BTTR GmbHBuilding B, comprised of medium-sized apartments, was built at the eastern rear connection. Here a projecting, slightly inclined and optically pleated balcony balustrade allows varying sized balconies to be realised thereby guaranteeing natural sunlight while in the darker seasons the sun reaches the depth of the apartments. Due to its distinctive corners, the otherwise stringent building achieves a sculptural effect.Save this picture!© BTTR GmbHBuilding C, the third central structure, detaches itself conspicuously from the typological regularity due to its unexpected interwoven sculptural balcony structures. The triangular balcony areas change their orientation alternately per floor, thrusting every second floor off the façade so that the overlying balcony recedes thus creating a terraced feeling. Attached to the verticals are tree troughs, there to create a sphere of privacy. The trees appear to climb up the façade, perpetuating the green character of the inner courtyard with the outer walls.Save this picture!© BTTR GmbHThe free-standing building enables all apartments on the western border of the property a particularly favourable exposure to light. Depending on the time of day and the incidence of light the metal façade seems to have a silvery or golden shimmer. Building C houses the club room with leisure facilities on the ground floor and a roof terrace, both of which are at the disposal of all residents.Save this picture!© BTTR GmbHHidden at the back of the courtyard area is Building D, a three-storey structure with six townhouses on offer. Each of the units is equipped with a front terrace, cellar and garden constituting an inner-city residential area providing high-quality urban dwelling.Save this picture!© BTTR GmbHAll buildings and individual sections serve the broader idea of public accessibility and the elimination of the strict separation of private courtyard and public space. Charlie Living proves that these qualities are not mutually exclusive and that a premium residential address in a central yet quiet location is possible with the highest openness to the urban public. Perhaps, a precedent for a sustainable and highly liveable urbanity.

Homeless mother and five children live out of garden shed in…

first_imgFacebook A SINGLE mother and her five young children are living out of a garden shed on the southside of the city after being given just two days to leave the rented accommodation they had been in for seven years.Lisa Marie Morey (31), and her children aged 3, 8, 9, 12 and 13 had lived happily in their privately rented house in Carew Park up until 10 weeks ago. According to Ms Morey, two men came to her door and told her the landlord had sold the house she was renting and that she could go “the easy way or the hard way”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The young mother told the Limerick Post she was so frightened that she vacated the house two days later, leaving most of her belongings behind including brand new bunk-beds and a plasma-screen TV.With nowhere else to go, she returned to her family home at Collins Avenue on the Roxboro Road, which was already occupied by her two parents and brother and his two children.For the past two months, she has been living out of cardboard boxes in a damp and dirty garden shed at the rear of the family home. Her two daughters have been staying ‘on and off’ with friends and family in County Limerick, while her two eldest boys now have to share a bed.Meanwhile, her youngest son, only 3, sleeps with his grandmother who suffers badly with arthritis and often needs to use a wheelchair.“I’ve been very depressed, it’s not been easy. This is no way to live. All I want is a home for my children. If my three-year-old needs a nappy change, I have to take him out to the shed. We’ve no room and I’ve even had to sleep out in the shed myself,” said a tearful Ms Morey.“There’s a perfectly good house boarded up across the road and I’m here living out of my mother’s shed. All the Council have to do is take the boards down off it and let me in. I’d do it up myself,” she insists.The unemployed mother, who claims she has been on the Council housing list for 12 years, said no one including the local authority and Housing Minister Jan O’Sullivan, who she says is aware of her plight, have offered any assistance.Lisa Marie’s father Jerry is angry that no one has lifted a finger to help. He said that the situation is “stressful” and impacting on the entire family.“This is no way for anyone to have to live. My daughter and grandkids’ clothes are all damp from being out in the shed. It’s like something you’d see on the television out in Nigeria. Foreigners are treated better by the Council than our own and get the best of houses, it’s an absolute disgrace,” he added.A spokeswoman for Limerick City and County Council explained that in an effort to respect the dignity of members of the public who require the homeless services funded by the local authority and the HSE, it cannot comment on individual cases.“However, it is important to highlight that every person who finds themselves or their family homeless will be supported in a proactive and engaged manner by staff in the Homeless Person Centre on Cecil Street,” said a Council spokeswoman.

Ger Mc Donnell’s brother-in-law Damien O’Brien told the Irish Times that they had just completed their final anniversary cycle for Ger, involving 91 cyclists travelling from Doolin in Clare to Kilcornan on Saturday.“A few hours after leaving the community centre, we heard that Jason had made it to the top and was on his way to a lower camp,” he said.“We are delighted and wishing him a good descent, as the summit is only half the climb and it is all about getting safely down,” O’Brien said.He confirmed that Jason Black’s wife Sharon had flown out to meet her husband and she conveyed the best wishes of the McDonnell family on his remarkable achievement.

First report of an entomophthoralean fungus on an arthropod host in Antarctica

first_imgA species of the fungus Neozygites (Zygomycetes: Entomophthorales) is recorded from the Antarctic mite Alaskozetes antarcticus (Acarina: Oribatidales) collected off the west coast of the Antarctic peninsula. The features of the fungus were similar to those recorded for Neozygites acaridis, and to other species of the genus recorded from mites in tropical and cool-temperate regions. This is the first report of any entomophthoralean fungus from the Antarctic region.last_img

Comparative analysis of Deschampsia antarctica Desv. population adaptability in the natural environment of Admiralty Bay (King George Island, maritime Antarctic)

first_imgPlants inhabiting extreme environments may possess features allowing them to tolerate sudden abrupt changes in their environment, a phenomenon often known as ‘adaptability.’ However, ability or success in developing adaptability varies among plant populations. Adaptability can be quantified by measuring variation in the response to the same environmental challenges between plant populations. In this study, we evaluate the adaptability of the iconic Antarctic plant, Deschampsia antarctica, based on traits reflecting three levels of organization: the population level (S, D. antarctica land cover), individual level (Ph, biometrics), and cell level (relative DNA content, rcDNA, in cells of the leaf parenchyma). We sampled a total of six D. antarctica populations in the Admiralty Bay region, King George Island (South Shetland Islands, maritime Antarctic), during the austral summer of 2005–2006, and analyzed pairwise interrelations between various indices reflecting plant population adaptability. The results of these pairwise comparisons were then used to estimate a pooled measure of each population’s adaptability, designated as united latent quality indicator (ULQI). Our results demonstrated that the responses of individual adaptability indices were seldom synchronized, although one population from the central part of the Point Thomas oasis did show some degree of synchronicity. This population also demonstrated the highest ULQI, consistent with the relatively favorable microenvironmental conditions at this location. Two other populations located closer to the shoreline also demonstrated detectable synchronicity and moderate levels of ULQI, while the remaining populations revealed no synchronized responses and negative ULQI values. As the ULQI value obtained will be strongly influenced by the conditions experienced by any given population during a particular season, evaluation of population dynamics requires annual monitoring over multiple seasons.last_img read more
