Children Abandoned due to Economic Crisis ⇢

elladastinkardiamou:

Despite gradual signs of economic recovery and monthly negotiations with the troika, significant social ills continue to torment Greek society. Child protection centers often face serious problems in the midst of economic crises; in the case of Greece, serious obstacles are hindering the care of neglected newborns.

The majority of Greek children now “trapped” in hospitals have mothers or caretakers who are simply incapable of tending to them. In some cases, mothers have altogether abandoned their infants in the hospital. “These children are ‘trapped’ in hospitals,” notes Athena Charalambous, head of the Social Service Department of Alexandra Hospital. “The hosting conditions are bad compared to their actual needs. We are not an orphanage, we are a Neo-natal Care Unit.”

The longer they stay in the hospital, the greater the chances these children struggle with neglect and abuse. There is no proper accommodation for children older than six months, while sick and healthy infants are forced to share hospital rooms. “We need to find a solution. We are working with the ministry to find suitable intermediate, non-hospital units to host these children.”

La differenza tra facebook e tumblr per me si riassume in un solo episodio: complottisti anti-allunaggio scrivono una sfilza di minchiate sulla bacheca di mio papà e quando io commento ‘E CHE DIRE ALLORA DELLE TRACCE DI FORMAGGIO SUL MODULO LUNARE?!’ mi prendono tutti sul serio chiedendomi di spiegare meglio la scoperta.

Sì all’utilizzo poliziesco anche in Italia – seppur in via sperimentale – della pistola elettrica Taser, apparecchio già in dotazione alle forze dell’ordine di diversi paesi tra i quali Stati Uniti, Francia, Inghilterra e Svizzera. E’ quanto prevede un emendamento del deputato Gregorio Fontana di Forza Italia al decreto stadi, in discussione in queste ore alla Camera dopo essere stato annunciato mesi fa in pompa magna dal ministro Alfano sull’onda emotiva dell’omicidio del tifoso napoletano Ciro Esposito.

L’emendamento è stato approvato dalle commissioni Giustizia e affari costituzionali della Camera. Via libera anche del Pd, dopo che il testo è stato riformulato inserendo un generico riferimento alle “necessarie cautele per la salute e l’incolumità pubblica” della sperimentazione. Sel ha invece espresso la propria contrarietà per voce di Daniele Farina mentre il pentastellato Emanuele Cozzolino ha detto che questo emendamento “non sarebbe dovuto essere discusso in un decreto teoricamente concentrato sugli stadi”.

In una nota diffusa in giornata da Amnesty International si leggono alcuni agghiaccianti dati che parlano dell’utilizzo del taser da parte degli agenti negli USA: dal 2001 e il 2008 351 persone negli Stati Uniti sono morte dopo essere state colpite dai TASER in dotazione alla polizia. In un blog la documentazione di altri 259 MORTI per il TASER sempre negli USA tra il 2009 e il 2014, questo porta ad un numero totale di 610 i morti    DOCUMENTATI per l’uso di quest’arma che entra da OGGI in SPERIMENTAZIONE, in dotazione alla polizia italiana, come “arma di dissuasione non letale: produce una scarica elettrica che rende la persona colpita inoffensiva per alcuni secondi, sufficienti alle forze dell’ordine per arrestarla.”  Il il 90% delle vittime  era disarmato

spotted on a caterpillar bulldozer in toronto

caterpillar supplies the “israeli” military with machinery used to destroy indigenous agricultural farms, ancient olive groves and demolish palestinian homes in their violent illegal occupation. 

"Without selling a single bomb, gun or F16 fighter, Caterpillar has been supplying the Israeli military with its “key weapon”, in the words one Israeli commander, in its illegal and brutal occupation of Palestine.

The toll of human lives destroyed with these machines is truly horrifying. During the last 4 years the Israeli army has flattened over 4,000 homes - rendering tens of thousand homeless, traumatised and impoverished. Israel claims that these demolitions are punitive actions against suspected terrorists. While such punishment is anyway illegal under international humanitarian law, a recent report by Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem found that in half of all cases there was nothing linking the houses to terrorism." via electronic intifada
