Para desafiar los derechos a las utilidades de los gobiernos y las corporaciones, a expensas de la gente y el planeta. Al desafío de la discriminación y elprejuicio y el odio y la maldad. Para desafiar al status quo, por decirlo así, que parece estar conduciéndonos –inexorablemente– al precipicio.Me honran con este premio, que humildemente recibo en nombre de este magnífico grupo de personas socialmente conscientes, personas diversas, multiculturales, multinacionales, polivalentes – de activistas por el bien común del ser humano y nuestro planeta…De quienes se dedican a salvar niñas de estar atrapadas en matrimonios abusivos en el África subsahariana;Quienes apoyan a desinvertir en las empresas de combustibles fósiles en Israel;Quienes se oponen a la legislación homofóbica en Uganda;Quienes apoyan el cierre de la despreciable prisión en la Bahía de GuantánamoA quienes en el campo de asistencia médica se preocupan por los refugiados en Siria;Aquellas mujeres extraordinarias que secan los ojos de niñas y niños ciegos y huérfanos a causa del SIDA en mi propio país, Sudáfrica;Quienes apoyan el derecho de los catalanes –y ciudadanos de otros territorios como el Tíbet, y las Islas Malvinas– para determinar pacíficamente su destino…Hay muchos más.Acepto este premio con todos, en su nombre. Tienen la sabiduría y el coraje y hacen el trabajo–es su mérito. Gracias.Viajé a Catalunya desde el norte de Canadá, donde fui invitado a hablar en una conferencia de las principales naciones para discutir lo que se denomina: campos de arenas bituminosas.Las compañías de combustible han descubierto el potencial de hacer masas de dinero por extracción de arena.Para ellos, estos beneficios son mayores que el hecho de extraer petróleo y se dice que más diabólica con la tierra y el medioambientalmente.Y los beneficios superan los derechos de las personas originarias en la prístina región del norte, conocida como Alberta.Hacen burla de las palabras y el espíritu de los tratados que las primeras naciones firmaron con la reina Victoria hace más de un siglo.Estos tratados garantizan a las primeras personas habitantes de Canadá el derecho a la práctica de las formas tradicionales de vida “siempre y cuando el sol brille, la hierba crezca y el flujo de los ríos se mantenga”. El sol sigue brillando en el norte de Alberta, pero cuánto tiempo continuará creciendo la hierba, y los ríos fluirán, si en el aire está muy presente la cada vez más contaminada atmósfera…Cuando uno considera lo que el impacto humano ha hecho al clima del mundo, uno se pregunta cómo la gente puede ser tan ciega, tan cegada por la ganancia y la avaricia.He estado en solidaridad con las comunidades a través de Canadá y Estados Unidos que se oponen a la extracción de arenas petrolíferas y las tuberías para mover el petróleo hasta el Golfo de México.La lucha de los ciudadanos contra este proyecto potencialmente calamitoso se pone en la primera línea de la lucha más importante en el mundo de hoy.Dios hizo a la gente con la intención de compartir el mundo. Pero, hace mucho tiempo, la gente decidió que compartir no era la mejor opción, así que se pusieron a dividir el mundo en piezas que tenían el poder para manejar, manipular y explotar sin la interferencia de otros grupos de personas.Así, durante miles de años el mundo ha presenciado el ascenso y caída de los poderosos líderes, ciudades, principados, imperios, los sindicatos y Estados.La historia de la cartografía, o de cartografía, está pensada para comenzar aproximadamente 8mil años –aunque hay ejemplos anteriores de personas que tienen asignadas los cielos.Los primeros “mapas del mundo” fueron desarrollados por dos razones: (1) para permitir la navegación y (2) para representar con precisión quién era dueño de qué. Estos son los llamados mapas “físicos” y “políticos” que tenemos hoy.Los mapas físicos mostrando el mundo de Dios, como fue creado, en todo su natural esplendor topográfico, oceánico y fluvial; los mapas políticos mostrando cómo la gente ha dividido arbitrariamente, los tamaños y formas de las piezas determinada no por las necesidades o deseos de la gente sino por la capacidad de los ricos y los poderosos para controlarlos.Un mapa, con las características físicas constantes que tienen –hasta hace muy poco– no afectado por la gente. El otro, con las características que han cambiado en siglos que reflejan el flujo y la energía humana.Hoy vivimos en lo que se ha denominado la aldea global. Comunicación, tecnología de la información y viajes que nos permiten estar en muchos lugares –virtualmente- al mismo tiempo. Y hay un sistema económico global que permite a la gente a decir que eso puede transformar un estornudo en la bolsa de valores de Wall Street en un resfriado en lugares remotos.Tenemos que volver a dibujar el mapa político para reflejar el interés humano, en el contexto de nuestro llamado mundo globalizado.Tenemos que volver a configurar, en nuestros corazones y nuestras mentes, las nociones que hemos aprendido de nuestra historia y de nuestros padres de “nosotros” y de “ellos”.Hay sólo un “nosotros”. No importa qué nacionalidad o bandera esté colgada en el jardín, ni cómo miramos o a quienes amamos, somos miembros de una misma familia, la familia de la humanidad –la familia de Dios.Seguramente es hora de que comencemos a vernos a nosotros mismos como hermanos y hermanas con intereses mutuos en cuanto a lo que queremos dejar a nuestros hijos, nietos y bisnietos por venir.En Sudáfrica, nos referimos a la esencia del ser humano como Ubuntu. Ubuntu Habla particularmente por el hecho de que no puedes existir como ser humano en aislamiento.Habla de nuestra interconexión. No puedes ser humano por ti mismo, y cuando tú tienes esta cualidad –Ubuntu– eres conocido por tu generosidad.Con demasiada frecuencia pensamos sobre nosotros mismos como individuos, separados uno de otro. Pero estamos conectados, y lo que hacemos afecta a todo el mundo. Cuando hacemos bien, lo sale fuera; es para toda la humanidad.Cuando la masa crítica de los ciudadanos de cualquier región o nación actúa con un propósito común para lograr un objetivo justo se convierten en una fuerza irresistible.Quienes buscan evitar que se logre, pueden tener éxito por un tiempo, con un gran costo, pero inevitablemente descubrirán que la resistencia es fútil.Discusiones de mente abierta y corazón abierto, en que todas las partes necesariamente hacen concesiones para el beneficio mutuo, son infinitamente preferibles.Estalló la lucha de los catalanes por un estado independiente atrayendo la atención del mundo en 2012 cuando más de 1millón de personas –algunos estiman millón y medio– se reunieron en el centro de Barcelona para la manifestación más grande en la historia de la ciudad.Esto fue seguido un año después por más personas que unieron sus manos para formar una larga cadena humana de 400 kilómetros, del norte al sur de Catalunya.Pero el Parlamento de España, en abril, rechazó formalmente la petición de Catalunya para realizar un referéndum y medir la opinión de la gente; el rechazo fue seguido por el endurecimiento público de las posiciones de ambas partes.La invasión violenta por matones derechistas de un centro cultural catalán en Madrid el fin de año fue un signo preocupante de lo que podría venir.Parece de sentido común decir que si la mayoría de los ciudadanos 7 millones de Catalunya anhelan independencia, gobierno central de España debe escuchar.Las partes deben discutir cómo podrían lograr mejor la independencia para los ciudadanos Catalanes del resto de España y el tipo de relación futura que beneficiaría a la mayoría de la gente.Seguramente tiene más sentido trazar conjuntamente el futuro que permitir que las relaciones se deterioren –y el riesgo de declarar unilateralmente la independencia de Cataluña. Yo uso la palabra “riesgo” con conocimiento de causa, porque cualquier forma o el unilateralismo es la segunda mejor opción al consenso y al acuerdo.El sol saldrá mañana –incluso en los campos de arenas petrolíferas en Alberta, por el momento, por lo menos. Las hermanas y hermanos que se encuentran a ambos lados de la frontera de Catalunya permanecerán en nuestro mundo compartido.Mantengamos las manos unidas y tracemos el mejor futuro para todos. Eso tiene que ser principal premio colectivo.Se lo agradezco.Dios les bendiga.

BT Community Connections Awards winners use their £5,000 awards Joy Butcher, founder of Find A Voice in Kent and BTCC National Award winner, chose £5,000 worth of media and PR training. She said: “The BTCC National Award has given us support on everything from styling our press releases, how to issue them and how to find out who to send them to. “The radio and TV interview sessions were absolutely fascinating – specialist knowledge that you wouldn’t otherwise get the opportunity to learn about. Over the last six months it has given me the confidence to talk directly to the local media and represent our organisation in a way I haven’t been able to do before. I have learnt to keep interviewers focused on the areas I want to talk about and not be led off in different directions.”The BTCC National Award is the highest level of award in the BT Community Connections scheme which supports voluntary groups in three levels. National Award winners initially won a BT Community Connections award consisting of a NEC Internet-ready PC, BT broadband connection and software package worth £1,300. They then won an e-ffective Connection Award – a tailored award package including digital cameras, printers and laptops worth up to £600. To qualify for the National Award, applicants provided information on progress made since receiving their initial awards and specified the day-to-day challenges they had overcome. Applicants then explained what type of expert advice, such as HR, finance, marketing or web development, would most help their group’s development and benefit their community.BTCC was developed by BT to break down the digital divide and provide ongoing support to the community sector. Melanie Carter, founder of Vale Plus Cymru and BTCC National Award winner chose £5,000 worth of web expertise. She said: The BTCC National Award has given us expertise and skills we would otherwise not have had access to. We have developed a professional website which can be designed and run by our own service users, who all have learning disabilities. It is very important for us to involve them and the website helps to highlight their needs and capabilities to the public.”Beth Courtier, BT’s head of charity programmes said: “BTCC National Awards further our relationship with community groups, empowering organisations with expertise that isn’t always available to them. The award has a more lasting impact than a simple cash grant.“Delivering tailored management skills to these groups has meant that they have had the opportunity to increase their impact in delivering vital work in the community.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The offer will be valid until 26 April 2009 but even customers whose insurance is due for renewal beyond the cut off date can benefit.RSA has introduced this offer to celebrate its position as sole provider of National Trust home and motor insurance policies, a partnership that is contracted to continue for the next four years.Thanks to RSA, National Trust members are now able to buy insurance cover through a variety of channels including the Trust’s website:www.nationaltrust.org.uk.The insurance products are available as a single combined policy or as separate policies. Buildings cover is insured up to £450,000 and contents covered for up to £55,000. Customers can also benefit from 24 hour emergency assistance and a personal customer manager.In addition to the 50% offer, RSA’s insurance product has been designed to support the National Trust’s dedication to protecting the environment. All customer communications will be printed on recycled paper and a donation will be made to the National Trust with every policy sold.Additionally, members who are already environmentally conscious and drive cars with a CO2 rating lower than 120g/km will be rewarded with a discount on their motor insurance. Home insurance discounts are offered to customers with properties with solar panels.Commenting on the offering, Andy Elkington, Partnerships Director of Affinity at RSA, said: “RSA is strongly committed to reducing its environmental impact, being the first carbon neutral insurer and a successful provider of green products such as discounts to drivers of hybrid cars. Given this, I am delighted that we can partner with an organisation such as the National Trust with which we share a common goal to protect the environment.“By providing this 50% discount to consumers in the current financial climate, our hope is that it will encourage more to take insurance with the National Trust and, in doing so, help safeguard the nation’s historic sites, coasts and countryside.”Lesley Lawrie, Corporate Partnership Manager for the National Trust added, “By choosing National Trust insurance, our supporters will not only be protecting their own homes and contents, but helping the Trust protect its hundreds of historic homes and buildings across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. RSA’s commitment to the environment makes the partnership with the Trust – as Europe’s largest conservation organisation – even stronger.”EndsMedia enquiries:Hannah GreenRSATel: 020 7337 5625Email: [email protected] to Editors:About RSAWith an almost 300 year heritage, RSA is one of the world’s leading multinational quoted insurance groups.

The Top Court’s bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and MR Shah has already issued notice to Kamra on the petitions seeking criminal contempt action against him, returnable within 6 weeks. Kamra had posted a picture of the Supreme Court dressed in saffron colour with the flag of the ruling party, the BJP. He also published several controversial remark against the Supreme Court such as ‘honour has left the building (Supreme Court) long back’ and ‘Supreme Court of the country is the most Supreme joke of the country’. The Attorney General for India had found these tweets to be ‘highly objectionable’ and he stated that it is time that people understand that attacking the Supreme Court of India unjustifiedly and brazenly will attract punishment under the Contempt of Courts Act, 1972. In the present case, Advocate Saurabh Tiwari was aggrieved by non-registration of a FIR against Kamra, by the local Police. He had approached the Varanasi Court stating that Kamra deliberately published a morphed photo of Indian National Flag with an intention to insult it. He had also contended that Kamra’s actions hurt the feeling of the people of this country and cause contempt and disrepute to the Indian National Flag. He stated that Kamra should be booked for offences under Section 2 of the Prevention of Insult to National Honour Act, 1971 and under Sections 153B (Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national-integration) and 505 (Statements conducing to public mischief) of IPC. “It is clear that offence committed on social media platform (Public Platform) and against Indian National Flag then question of jurisdiction cannot be raised because offence presumed to be committed (In Varanasi also),” Tiwari had said in his complaint.
