Labrador artist says hell go to the end with hunger strike over

first_img(Billy Gauthier is on a hunger strike over the Muskrat Falls hyrdro-electric project. Photo courtesy Billy Gauthier)Trina Roache APTN National NewsAn Inuk artist is taking action against a major hydroelectric project along the Lower Churchill River in Labrador that could impact traditional food sources for the Inuit.Billy Gauthier has started a hunger strike. He ate salmon caught in Rigolet for his last meal Thursday evening.“I’m willing to go to the end,” said Gauthier. “If they don’t do what I’ve demanded, which is remove the organic materials from the proposed flooded area, I will not eat anymore.”Gauthier lives in North West River, about a half hour drive from Happy-Valley GooseBay. Both his art and life are shaped by the land.“Anybody that knows me that my favorite time of the year is the spring seal hunt,” said Gauthier. “Without that animal, I wouldn’t be here. My ancestors, none of them, could have survived without it.”Billy Gauthier’s last meal. Photo courtesy: Billy GauthierGauthier, like many Labrador Inuit, fear the Muskrat falls project will poison traditional foods.“There’s been so many things already taken away from the people of Labrador, northern peoples, Aboriginal people in general, over and over and over,” said Gauthier. “I guarantee if this thing goes ahead, it will completely change the area. The most wholesome thing you can do with your family is hunt and fish and feel proud, feel connected to your culture, understand your ancestors. You take that away and why you wonder is there so much suicide in aboriginal culture. That’s f—ing why.”See related stores here: Muskrat Falls Research by a team from Harvard University predicts that when the reservoir at Muskrat Falls is flooded, the trees, vegetation, and topsoil will create methylmercury. The toxin will flow downstream from the dam and work its way up the food chain.“What I believe will happen if this here goes ahead is we will not be able to eat the fish from the area which is my favorite thing to do. An amazing wholesome thing to do,” said Gauthier. “The best way a person can get food is through the land, naturally. I know it.”Gauthier said time is of the essence.Energy company Nalcor, owned by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, is set to begin flooding the reservoir any time after Saturday, October 15. It’s a long process and one that will happen in stages. But the timeline has left grassroots people and Inuit leaders scrambling.Labrador Inuit have held rallies and marches in recent weeks, with loud chants of “Make Muskrat Right.”The Nunatsiavut Government has called on the province and Nalcor to fully clear the reservoir and is looking at legal options to force the province to act.“We once again implore the Premier to not play Russian roulette with the lives of our people, and to direct Nalcor Energy to delay flooding of the Muskrat Falls reservoir until it is fully cleared of all trees, vegetation and topsoil,” said Nunatsiavut president Johannes Lampe in a statement released Friday.“The concerns over methylmercury contamination are real, and to proceed with flooding without fully clearing will clearly violate our human and Indigenous rights,” said Lampe. “This project has to be stopped now before it’s too late.”While there’s no commitment to do that, Newfoundland and Labrador Environment and Climate Change Minister Perry Trimper has said he is willing to explore the option.Gauthier said his hunger strike is a drastic action. “But nothing else will work. Everything is happening too fast. I wasn’t willing to do a violent act.”Many have criticized the province and Nalcor for being behind schedule and over budget at $11.4 billion dollars.The town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, just 30 kilometres from the Muskrat Falls project has a large Indigenous population. The town council has also expressed concerns over the impact of the dam.In a message released on Friday, the council stated, “Our community has been directly impacted by this development and yet, to date, we have been left out of any negotiations or workshops regarding the clearing of the reservoir and the water-monitoring program.”Cartwright, on the coast of Southern Labrador, residents have promised action on the ground if Nalcor tries to use the town’s port without consent.In a Facebook post after a community meeting last week, the council wrote, “…the residents of Cartwright feel that there is no price tag on the safety and security of our wild food chain or positive mental health that comes along with carrying on our traditions and culture.”By unanimous vote, we are to deliver the message to Nalcor and the Province that this project is not welcome to come through the port of Cartwright until all vegetation and soil is removed from the reservoir area.”NunatuKavut leader Todd Russell, speaking for the Southern Inuit in Labrador, is expected to make an announcement on Monday on the Muskrat Falls project. Russell has voiced his opposition in the past.Gauthier has kept an eye on the politics and protests. But said for him, and for many Labrador Inuit, this is about the survival of a way of life.“This is my land,” said Gauthier, his voice breaking as he explains the deep connection. “This land has built me, the way it built my ancestors. This is where I get all my inspiration for my artwork. This is my life.”His 15-year-old daughter doesn’t live with him, but Gauthier said when she visits, her favorite thing to do is go ice fishing. He added that making the call to her he was going on a hunger strike was one of the hardest things he’s had to do.“I love life,” he said. “I’m crying right now because I am scared. And I keep thinking about my daughter.”But he’s firm that if the flooding happens, he won’t eat. He’ll only eat, when the project is halted so clearing can begin. Promises aren’t enough. He wants action.“I realize it’s a multi-billion dollar project,” he said. “To be honest, I’m scared. But not scared enough to not do it.”There’s been talk of compensation if methylmercury taints food sources. Inuit leaders have criticized that offer saying it’s not good enough.Gauthier said the province should just pay the $200-million dollar bill to clear the reservoir. And that not doing so sends a clear message.“That says to me the government doesn’t give a shit about us,” he said. “It also says the government is being incredibly foolish. Do they honestly believe that spending 200-million right now is going to be a deal? Because in the future, with the several generations it takes before methylmercury is gone…these people are going to have all kinds of problems. It will harm people.”As for Billy Gauthier, he plans to continue his hunger strike, posting updates on social media daily.“I want to spread the word like wildfire as much as possible,” said Gauthier. “I don’t want to die. But I’m telling you it in Nalcor’s hands. They can choose to cut the trees and remove all the organic material.”Gauthier said he has support from friends and family. But hasn’t yet heard from either Nalcor or the province.troache@aptn.calast_img read more

Security Council renews DR Congo Mission reduces troop numbers by 2000

Among recommendations contained in the strategic review of the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the country (MONUSCO) the Council endorsed were those on transforming the force to become more efficient and effective in implementing its mandate and the Council fully endorsed them.It also endorsed the recommendation to reduce the MONUSCO force by 2,000 troops, while maintaining an authorized troop ceiling. The intention was to make the troop reduction permanent but “significant progress” regarding the priorities of the force’s mandate would first be necessary, the resolution said.With regard to future reconfigurations of MONUSCO and its mandate, the Council decided that consultations should take place between the DRC Government on the basis of the situation on the ground and progress on reduction of the threat posed by Congolese and foreign armed groups and the stabilisation through the establishment of functional, professional and accountable State institutions.The resolution authorizes MONUSCO to take all necessary measures to ensure the effective protection of civilians under threat of physical violence and of UN personnel, and to work with the Government on identifying threats to civilians and implementing existing prevention and response plans. It is also authorized to arrest and bring to justice those allegedly responsible for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity and violations of international humanitarian law and violations or abuses of human rights in the country.Under the terms of the resolution, the Mission is also authorized to carry out targeted offensive operations through the Intervention Brigade in cooperation with the whole of MONUSCO, either unilaterally or jointly with the FARDC, and is responsible for monitoring implementation of the arms embargo.The text requests MONUSCO to take fully into account gender considerations and child protection as cross-cutting issues throughout its mandate and to assist the Government in doing the same, and it encourages the Mission to enhance its interaction with the civilian population to raise awareness and understanding about its mandate and activities.The Mission is also authorized to contribute support to the Government on action against armed groups, on implementing the revised International Security and Stabilisation Support Strategy and Provincial Stabilisation Plans, and on disarmament, demobilization and reintegration, and disarmament, demobilization, repatriation, resettlement and reintegration processes. It is also authorised to support promotion of human rights and the fight against impunity, and to support the action plan to prevent and end the recruitment and use of children by the FARDC.Reiterating the importance of implementing the Peace Security and Cooperation (PSC) Framework to the achievement of long term stability of eastern DRC and the region, the resolution urges prompt implementation of commitments, calling on the DRC Government to make further meaningful progress on its commitments under the Framework.It also authorises the Mission to support the Congolese authorities and their efforts to deliver the reforms called by the PSC Framework and stabilisation in eastern DRC on promoting peace consolidation and political dialogue, monitoring, reporting and following-up on human rights violations, and supporting security sector reform efforts.The resolution noted with deep concern the lack of progress in fields essential for DRC’s stabilisation and reiterated its call to the Government of the DRC to take immediate steps to uphold its commitment to security sector reform.The text calls on the Government of the DRC and its national partners to ensure a transparent and credible electoral process, welcoming promulgation of the electoral law and the publication of a comprehensive electoral calendar, and calling on the Government of the DRC to put swiftly in place an adequate electoral budget and an electoral code of conduct, and conduct a credible update of the electoral register, to ensure the successful and timely holding of elections.Strongly condemning all armed groups operating in the region, the resolution demands that the FDLR, the ADF, the LRA, and all other armed groups cease immediately all forms of violence and other destabilizing activities, including the exploitation of natural resources, and that their members immediately and permanently disband, lay down their arms and release children from their ranks.It continues, demanding that the Government of the DRC fulfils its commitments under the Nairobi Declarations, to implement its DDR plan, focusing on reintegration of former combatants in coordination with the United Nations, international organizations and neighbouring countries where former M23 combatants have found refuge.While demanding full cooperation with MONUSCO in the DRC, the resolution stressed that MONUSCO’s exit should be gradual and progressive, and should be tied to specific targets to be jointly developed by the Government of the DRC and MONUSCO. It encouraged regular strategic dialogue with the UN and noted the need for a clear exit strategy for the Intervention Brigade. read more

BBC apologises after Stacey Dooley wrongly claimed women gave Isil salute in

“This is what happens when you pass over real journalists to cover these kinds of stories – those that require cultural sensitivity and compassion.”Oz Katerji, a journalist, said he had complained to the BBC about the mistake. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. His complaint reads: “Stacey Dooley, while visiting an internment camp in Al-Hawl, Syria, describes meeting female former IS members. During the VT, one of the women raises her finger, this finger raising gesture is an Orthodox Sunni Muslim practice.”Stacey Dooley refers to this gesture as an “ISIS Salute”, which is both ignorant and offensive to adherents of Sunni Islam. The gesture has been adopted by ISIS members, but it does not belong to them, and referring to it as such is beneath a news broadcast.” The BBC has just published a story from an upcoming Panorama episode in which Stacey Dooley refers to a raised finger of Tawheed as an “ISIS salute”. There is simply no excuse for ignorance like this.— Oz Katerji (@OzKaterji) August 4, 2019 Many were angered by the mischaracterisation of the gesture.Anti-racism charity Tell MAMA commented: “Tawhid (Tawheed) is the defining doctrine of Islam, demonstrating the oneness of Allah (God). To reduce such a fundamental and important concept to a mere ‘IS salute’ is grossly wrong, ignorant, and damaging.”This again demonstrates the importance of having Muslim representation in media, and more broadly, improving religious literacy.”BBC journalist Anisa Subedar tweeted: “This issue raised by @OzKaterji and others needs to be addressed before tonight’s #Panorama is aired. Raising the finger is NOT an IS salute.”Does #StaceyDooley know us Muslims raise it everytime we pray (that’s 5 times a day) to remind us of the oneness of God?”She said that the statement was “insulting and offensive to Muslims and journalists”, adding: “Islam is a monotheistic faith. One of the five pillars – the declaration of faith – states there is only one God. Raising the index finger is a manifestation of that. It has nothing to do with IS. This issue raised by @OzKaterji and others needs to be addressed before tonight’s #Panorama is aired.Raising the finger is NOT an IS salute. Does #StaceyDooley know us Muslims raise it everytime we pray (that’s 5 times a day) to remind us of the oneness of God?— Anisa Subedar (@TheAnisaSubedar) August 5, 2019 “While IS have attempted to adopt this for their own propaganda purposes, for accuracy we should have been clear that many people of Muslim faith use this gesture to signify the oneness of Allah. We apologise for this error and have removed this description from the footage.” The BBC has been forced to apologise after Stacey Dooley wrongly described a Muslim gesture as an “IS salute” in her new Panorama show.The documentary presenter, while narrating a show about the brides of Isil fighters, said over a clip of women displaying the raised finger of Tawheed: “As we left the camp, we saw women raising their index finger in an IS salute.”This gesture, though used by Islamic State fighters in the past, refers to the belief in the oneness of God, which is a key component of the Muslim religion. It is widely used by Muslims around the world.The offending phrase was shown in a clip of the upcoming documentary, Stacey Dooley Meets the IS Brides, on the BBC News at 10 last night.After multiple complaints, the BBC has confirmed this description will be removed from tonight’s Panorama. A spokesperson said: “We wrongly described a gesture made by women filmed in a Kurdish controlled detention camp in Northern Syria as an ‘IS salute’.  read more

Planning permission for Teesside UK rare earths refinery granted

first_imgPeak Resources reports that the Planning Permission for the planned rare earth separation plant in the UK has been granted by the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council. The permission is a substantial milestone in the development of the Teesside Refinery and the primary regulatory hurdle required to allow the construction of the plant.The receipt of the planning permission is a culmination of 18 months of work by Peak and its UK based engineering and environmental consultants WYG. The application consisted of a comprehensive environment impact statement, ecological studies, detailed plans for the construction and operation of the processing plant and an inclusive consultation process with stakeholders including in particular the local community. The application met with no objections throughout the entire process and the conditions assigned to the permission are as expected and will be discharged in due course. The timely way in which the local authority considered the application and the lack of objections to the development is representative of the level of support that the project receives from both the local community and the government.The planning permission is issued by Redcar and Cleveland local authority and is the approval required for the construction of the facility at Wilton in Teesside. The environment license which is required for the operation of the facility is currently being considered by the Environment Agency and anticipated to be issued later this year.The company reports that “the Teesside plant is a key differentiator between Peak and other rare earth development companies as Peak is the only current developer who will be able to produce saleable rare earth oxide products in-house which will enable the company to sell its products directly to end users and manufacturers. The plant will also significantly add value to the project as the separated rare earths will command a higher price than a less refined concentrate or a mixed carbonate.”“We undertook a global search for the best place to locate the separation plant and Teesside stood out as the most cost effective and efficient place for us to commence operations. The support the local community has for the project just reaffirms our decision making process. This latest milestone moves Ngualla closer to the excellent position of being able to commence construction in a timely manner to take advantage of the stronger NdPr rare earth demand driven by the electrification of our society and the fact that behind each Lithium battery is an electric motor. The E-mobility sector is a driving force for this increasing demand as the majority of all electric vehicles (BEV & PHEV) which are in the pipeline to be launched to the market will use a rare earth NdPr permanent magnet electric motor.” Commented Rocky Smith, Peak’s CEOAfter completing a comprehensive study that investigated potentially suitable locations around the globe for the refinery, Peak identified the Teesside site as the ideal having the following key attributes:Existing industrial park with plug and play utilities available at the site boundaryAdjacent to the UK’s third largest sea port, train lines, and trunk roadsAvailability of reagents including low cost Hydrochloric AcidAvailability of a qualified and skilled workforceAccess to existing waste disposal facilities eliminating the requirements for a standalone tailings facilityLocal and National Government SupportCorporate tax rate of 19% reducing to 17% from 2020Enhanced capital allowance for up to €125 million on qualifying plant and machineryWell established regulatory operating regimeClose to UK & European markets (important for the lower value cerium + lanthanum).The above attributes combined with the high quality Ngualla ore enables the estimated low capital cost of $165 million including contingency and $40 million annual operating costs for the Teesside plant to produce on average 2,810 t/y of NdPr. The total project (Ngualla and Teesside) pre-tax and royalties NPV10 is $686 million as shown in the graph and detailed in the ASX release dated October 12, 2017 “Lower price deck delivers similar BFS results for Ngualla”.Peak and its partners are developing the Ngualla project in Tanzania into a low cost next generation rare earth project that is strongly aligned to the high value, expanding high-tech magnet metal market. it has tailored its processing flowsheet to focus on the production of neodymium and praseodymium.last_img read more
