first_img RSF_en The event will be also broadcast live on Reporters Without Borders social media channels.  Online freedoms Internet Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is opening two new rooms in its Uncensored Library, a project launched a year ago to mark World Day Against Cyber Censorship on 12 March. The two rooms are dedicated to censored articles from Belarus and Brazil, making them available to the public. News Online freedoms Internet RSF’s Free Library is expanding. Launched a year ago, it gives the public to access censored articles via the computer game Minecraft. In countries where the Internet, blogs and the free press are restricted, the game is accessible to all and, through it, the RSF Free Library allows players anywhere in the world access to books containing articles that have been censored in their original countries. This digital library, which up to now has contained content from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Mexico, Russia and Vietnam, has been extended to two new countries: Belarus and Brazil. The content can be read in English and in the writers’ native languages.“In Belarus and Brazil, it is becoming more and more difficult for citizens to obtain free access to information,” says RSF Secretary General Christophe Deloire. “Since the start of protests against electoral fraud in Belarus, the government has cracked down on the work of journalists. In Brazil, unjustified prosecutions of media organisation and the hostile attitude towards journalists encouraged at the highest levels have seriously affected press freedom. By making unpublished  articles in these countries available, RSF’s Free Library makes it possible for as many people as possible to access trustworthy information from a broad variety of sources once more.”Blocked content in Belarus, censorship in Brazil Organisation Help by sharing this information March 11, 2021 – Updated on March 12, 2021 RSF expands its digital library against censorship to Belarus and Brazil In Belarus, where television and most of the print media are firmly in the hands of the Lukashenko regime, only online news sites and overseas-based news organisations are able to disseminate  independent news and information, but their content is regularly censored by the authorities. RSF’s Free Library publishes articles from the independent website Charter 97, which has been blocked in Belarus since January 24th, 2018. The website documents the repression faced by journalists since the beginning of the protests against President Alexander Lukashenko’s contested re-election, in August 2020.Brazil is one of the most dangerous countries for journalists in Latin America. Since President Jair Bolsonaro was elected in 2018, reporters have faced hate speech, disinformation and violence. In its Uncensored Library, RSF publishes reports from the independent online newspapers Grupo Gente Nova (GGN) and The Intercept. The two news organisations have seen some of their articles censored by court rulings as they have highlighted the suspicious activities of Latin America’s largest investment bank BTG Pactual and exposed the murky relations between a politician and the election authority in the state of Amazonas.300 000 downloadsWith more than 126 million players per month, Minecraft is one of the most popular video games in the world. The Uncensored Library, devised by the German advertising agency DDB, has acquired a considerable reputation in the past year. Since its launch in March 2020, more than 20 million players from 165 countries have used it to learn more about press freedom around the world. The library is available on Minecraft via the server address visit.uncensoredlibrary.com and can be downloaded from the dedicated site www.uncensoredlibrary.com hosted on a separate server. Available on social networks via the hashtag #TruthFindsAWay, the library has been downloaded by more than 300,000 people, making censorship almost impossible.RSF is holding an online event to celebrate the inauguration of the new rooms. In addition to Blockworks founder James Delaney, we’ll be talking to journalists from Brazil about their experience of censorship and will take the opportunity to check out the rooms in Minecraft together.

Indonesian Military distributes 151,000 pieces of protective gear, 19,000 left at warehouse

first_imgThe Indonesian Military (TNI) has distributed 151,000 pieces of personal protective equipment to 34 provinces across Indonesia to help medical personnel in combating the spread of COVID-19.With the distribution, 19,000 items remain in stock as of Friday from the initial 170,000, said a commissioned officer of the military’s internal operations, Col. Inf. Aditya Nindra Pasha.He went on to say that most of the equipment, as many as 40,000 items, had been delivered to Jakarta, considering that the city was the epicenter of COVID-19 infections in the country.  Another 20,000 items have been sent to the second hardest-hit province, West Java. “All equipment was distributed between March 23 and 26, from a national warehouse in Halim Perdanakusuma Air Force Base [in East Jakarta],” said Aditya in a press conference on Friday.He also said that the 151,000 items also included 20,000 pieces of protective gear to be allocated to 10 provinces but had yet to be distributed. The provinces include Riau, Jambi, Bengkulu, Gorontalo and Central Sulawesi.  Read also: COVID-19: Protective gear delivered to medical workers to alleviate scarcityWith the decrease in supply, the military will focus on distributing the remaining items to provinces with poor connectivity, as well as regions bordering neighboring countries, said Aditya. “The amount of distributed equipment to each province was based on their request, so we hope that regional administrations can determine which regions in their provinces need the equipment the most,” he added.Since mid-February, Indonesia’s health workers, doctors and nurses have been working overtime to treat COVID-19 cases, despite many of them having inadequate personal protection. Many of the medical workers were found to have worn makeshift personal protection gear, including raincoats, in lieu of hazmat suits. A medical worker at a hospital in Bogor, West Java, who asked to remain anonymous, said about a week ago that the Bogor administration had issued a circular urging medical workers at community health centers (Puskesmas) and hospitals to wear protective gear after the city declared a state of an extraordinary case of COVID-19.“But it’s very hard for us, medical workers, to obtain the equipment and we’ve been wearing raincoats until now,” he told The Jakarta Post on Friday. “We just hope that the equipment will be evenly distributed,” he added.
