Organizatiile românilor din emigratie îsi exprimã solidaritatea cu traseul si agenda negocierilor României pentru aderarea la UE
Bucuresti, 2 feb /Rompres/

- Departamentul pentru românii de pretutindeni a salutat luni initiativa reprezentantilor unor organizatii ale românilor din
emigratie de a-si exprima solidaritatea fatã de traseul si agenda
negocierilor de aderare a României la Uniunea Europeanã, ca reactie la
propunerea unui europarlamentar de suspendare a negocierilor de aderare cu tara noastrã.

Într-o scrisoare redactatã la iniþiativa Uniunii Mondiale a Românilor Liberi(UMRL) si care a fost semnatã pânã în prezent de Comitetul Coordonator Internaþional al UMRL, Consiliul Mondial Român (CMR), Lumea Româneascã din SUA, Alianta Românilor Canadieni (ARC), Liga Asociatiilor Româno-Germane (LARG) si Asociatia Canadiano-Românã a Profesorilor Universitari - Ontario, Canada (ACRUPO), reprezentantii românilor din emigratie îsi exprimã solidaritatea cu procesul de negociere României, fãcând referire la consensul politic realizat în cadrul Consiliului European din decembrie 2003.

Într-un comunicat de presã transmis luni, Departamentul pentru românii de pretutindeni salutã semnificatia si maturitatea gestului de solidaritate româneascã, precum si faptul cã, independent de diversitatea optiunilor lor politice, organizatiile amintite au perceput iniþiativele de suspendare a negocierilor ca fiind în contradictie cu interesele nationale ale României, subscriind, prin mesajul lor comun, la continuarea negocierilor de aderare a
tãrii noastre la UE, în baza calendarului stabilit de Comisia Europeanã.

Departamentul pentru românii de pretutindeni îsi exprimã încrederea cã
initiativa asociatiilor comunitãtilor românesti din emigratie va beneficia de un cât mai larg sprijin, procesul de refacere si consolidare a unitãtii românesti în jurul statului de origine si a intereselor sale fundamentale fiind o realitate si în acelasi timp o necesitate.

Committee to Protect Journalists

EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE: MONDAY, MAY 3, AT 00:01 GMT (For Monday's Newspapers)

CPJ Names World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist

New York, April 30, 2004-The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is marking World Press Freedom Day, Monday, May 3, by naming the World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist.
The list of 10 places represents the full range of current threats to press freedom.

At the top of the list is Iraq, where 25 journalists have died since the U.S.-led war began in March 2003. A brutal crackdown launched last year in Cuba by Fidel Castro's government has left an unprecedented 29 journalists behind bars, serving lengthy prison terms of up to 27 years. Last year saw the biggest blow to Zimbabwe's beleaguered press when authorities closed the country's only remaining independent daily. CPJ also placed Turkmenistan, Bangladesh, China, Eritrea, Haiti, the West Bank and Gaza, and Russia on the list of Worst Places to Be a Journalist.


"In all of these places, reporting the news is an act of courage and conviction," said CPJ Executive Director Ann Cooper. "Journalism is essential in helping all of us understand the events that shape our lives, and our need and desire for information cannot be eliminated by violence and repression."


WORLD'S WORST PLACES TO BE A JOURNALIST:

IRAQ

More than a year after the war in Iraq began, the country remains the most dangerous place in the world to work as a journalist. Twenty-five journalists have been killed in action in Iraq since March 2003. Twelve have been killed in 2004 alone-all of them Iraqis.

Postwar Iraq is fraught with risks for reporters: Banditry, gunfire, and bombings are common. Insurgents have added a new threat by systematically targeting foreigners, including journalists, and Iraqis who work for them.
At least six Iraqi media workers have been murdered, and several more have received threats. Armed groups have abducted some eight journalists in 2004, though all have been released.

U.S. forces pose an additional threat to working journalists: at least seven-and possibly as many as nine-journalists have been killed by gunfire from U.S. forces. Other journalists-mostly Arab or Iraqi-have been detained and suffered mistreatment at the hands of U.S. forces.

CUBA

The arrest and long-term imprisonment of 29 journalists in 2003 has decimated Cuba's fledgling independent press. A year after the government of President Fidel Castro Ruz launched a massive crackdown against the press and the political opposition, the imprisoned journalists and their families are harassed and exposed to humiliating prison conditions and psychological torture. They have denounced inadequate medical attention, have been placed in solitary confinement, and have complained about receiving foul-smelling and rotten food. The journalists, who are held in maximum-security facilities, went on hunger strikes several times to demand better conditions. Those journalists who were not imprisoned continue to face routine police intimidation and harassment and are careful about what they write. They say they have been visited by state security officials and issued warnings to stop writing or face the consequences.

ZIMBABWE

For the last four years, Zimbabwe's government has pursued a relentless crackdown on the private press through harassment, censorship, and restrictive legislation. Last year saw the biggest blow to press freedom yet, with authorities closing the Daily News, Zimbabwe's only independent daily and the country's most popular paper. The country's Media and Information Commission (MIC), whose board is government-appointed, refused to register the newspaper despite two court orders to do so. And in February 2004, the Zimbabwean Supreme Court upheld legislation requiring journalists and media outlets to be licensed by the MIC, making it a criminal act to practice journalism without government approval. Those who fail to register face fines and up to two years' imprisonment.

Zimbabwean officials have proven particularly sensitive to coverage of political unrest and the country's severe economic problems. Journalists who reported on pro-democracy rallies were arrested by police and attacked by ruling party supporters. Last year, authorities deported the last foreign reporter based in Zimbabwe, the U.K. Guardian's Andrew Meldrum, whom officials called an "undesirable inhabitant."

TURKMENISTAN

Because political dissent is not tolerated by Turkmenistan's totalitarian regime, independent journalism is practically non-existent.
President-for-life and self-proclaimed "father of all Turkmen,"
Saparmurat
Niyazov, maintains strict control over all newspapers, radio, and television stations by personally appointing editors, and his office approves news reports before they are published or broadcast.

One of the only independent media outlets that penetrates this system of control is the reporting broadcast from abroad by the Turkmen service of the U.S. government-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). And again this year, RFE/RL was subjected to intense official harassment. In September 2003, National Security Service (MNB) agents detained an RFE/RL stringer based in the capital, Ashgabat, for two days, threatened him with 20 years in prison for betraying his country, and injected him multiple times with an unknown substance. More recently, in February 2004, MNB agents arrested two RFE/RL freelancers after one smuggled 800 copies of his banned novel into Turkmenistan. Both were released from prison in March after CPJ and other press freedom groups protested. However, the journalists still face charges of slander and instigating social, ethnic, and religious hatred and have been pressured to sever all ties with RFE/RL.


BANGLADESH

Crime, corruption, and lawlessness make Bangladesh the most violent country for journalists in Asia. Reporters routinely face threats, harassment, and often brutally violent physical attacks in retaliation for their reporting.
Despite promises from government officials to apprehend those responsible for assaults, the majority of attacks on journalists go unpunished. Deep political divisions in the country and within the journalism community also contribute to the climate of fear.

CPJ has documented dozens of violent attacks against Bangladeshi journalists during the last decade, including the murders of seven journalists in the last eight years. Journalists working outside the capital, Dhaka, are particularly vulnerable. Veteran journalist Manik Saha was killed in January
2004 in the southwestern city of Khulna when unidentified assailants threw a homemade bomb at him. In December 2003, a group of thugs affiliated with the ruling Bangladesh Nationalist Party tried to kill Shafiul Haque Mithu in the southwestern town of Pirojpur after he wrote a series of articles exposing local officials' abuse of power.

CHINA

During the last year, the newly installed government of President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao has escalated an assault on the burgeoning independent-minded media in China. Authorities have arrested high-profile editors, closed publications, and imposed news blackouts on politically sensitive events.

The crackdown reached an apex in early 2004, when officials arrested three popular and respected editors from the pioneering Southern Metropolis News for alleged corruption. The charges came after the paper published a series of reports on the resurgence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, local police violence, and other sensitive topics. Chinese journalists have called the arrests the "darkest moment" in 20 years of media reform in China.

Forty-one journalists are now imprisoned in China, making it the world's leading jailer of journalists for the fifth year in a row. Independent writers and commentators on the Internet are particularly targeted for prosecution. The arrest of prominent and outspoken commentator Du Daobin in late 2003 sent a clear message to all Internet writers that free expression online will not be tolerated.

ERITREA

Eritrea has been Africa's foremost jailer of journalists since September 2001, when the government banned the entire private press and detained independent reporters. Seventeen journalists are now in secret jails across the tiny Red Sea nation, almost all of them held incommunicado. President Isaias Afewerki and top government officials have accused independent journalists of espionage, spreading disinformation, and "endangering national unity." Authorities continue to insist that the private press also operated without proper licenses, and that independent journalists routinely evaded the compulsory National Service Program. Despite these allegations, no formal charges have been brought against any of the journalists, and the government has given no indication that it intends to prosecute them.

The ruling party has a firm grip on the state media, whose employees are censored and also practice self-censorship. Afewerki has been unfazed by persistent international denunciation of his human rights record and continues to dismiss foreign critics as enemies of Eritrea.


HAITI

Press freedom conditions have seriously deteriorated in Haiti since September 2003, when the murder of a notorious gang leader sparked nationwide violence. From January to March 2004, journalists became targets during the uprising that led to the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on February 29. While hostility against Haitian journalists is common, foreign correspondents were also attacked while covering the two-month rebellion. In March, a Spanish television correspondent was killed and a U.S. photographer was wounded by gunfire. Several radio stations were torched around the country. Investigations into the 2000 and 2001 murders of two prominent Haitian journalists have shown no progress. The Haitian judicial system's failure to prosecute these crimes has perpetuated a climate of impunity, forcing dozens of journalists to go into exile or seek political asylum.

THE WEST BANK AND GAZA

The West Bank and Gaza Strip remains one of the most unpredictable and potentially dangerous assignments for journalists. At least three journalists have been killed there since April 2003-each by Israeli army gunfire. Israeli troops often harass or attack Palestinian journalists, and Israeli authorities enforce tough restrictions on their freedom of movement.
Palestinian journalists are vulnerable to the increasing lawlessness in the Occupied Territories.

Palestinian militias and armed groups have frequently threatened and assaulted reporters and in some cases have ransacked news offices. In 2003 and 2004, Palestinian gunmen raided two television news offices and a newspaper in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, attacked a correspondent on the street in Gaza, and assaulted a reporter in Ramallah.

RUSSIA

President Vladimir Putin's "managed democracy," which includes using various branches of the state bureaucracy to rein in the independent media, is making the practice of independent journalism in Russia more and more tenuous. A shift from blatant pressures to more subtle and covert tactics, such as politicized lawsuits and hostile corporate takeovers by businessmen with close ties to Putin, has allowed the Kremlin to stifle criticism of the president and reports on government corruption and human rights abuses committed by Russian forces in Chechnya.

In advance of the December 2003 parliamentary elections and March 2004 presidential elections, the Kremlin tightened its legal and bureaucratic controls over the domestic press. Russian press groups criticized the Central Election Commission for failing to sanction the state-run national television channels for improperly promoting Putin and pro-Kremlin parties during the campaigns.

Journalists in Russia's provinces continue to be murdered with impunity.
In
October 2003, the editor-in-chief of an independent newspaper in the Volga River city of Togliatti was stabbed to death because of his paper's coverage of organized crime and government corruption. He was the paper's second editor-in-chief to be murdered in 18 months.

The Committee to Protect Journalists is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to defending press freedom worldwide.

Apropos de gluma cu creionul si pixul folosite de rusi/NASA.

According to NASA:

"During the first NASA missions the astronauts used pencils. For Project Gemini, for example, NASA ordered mechanical pencils in 1965 from Tycam Engineering Manufacturing, Inc., in Houston. (...)

During this time period, Paul C. Fisher of the Fisher Pen Co. designed a ballpoint pen that would operate better in the unique environment of space. (...)

Fisher developed his space pen with no NASA funding. The company reportedly invested about $1 million of its own funds in the effort then patented its product and cornered the market as a result.

Fisher offered the pens to NASA in 1965, but, because of the earlier controversy, the agency was hesitant in its approach. In 1967, after rigorous tests, NASA managers agreed to equip the Apollo astronauts with these pens. Media reports indicate that approximately 400 pens were purchased from Fisher at $6 per unit for Project Apollo.

The Soviet Union also purchased 100 of the Fisher pens, and 1,000 ink cartridges, in February 1969, for use on its Soyuz space flights. Previously, its cosmonauts had been using grease pencils to write in orbit.

Both American astronauts and Soviet/Russian cosmonauts have continued to use these pens." ---Steven J. Dick, NASA Chief Historian

Cei mai multi oameni ar rade cu lacrimi la gluma cu creionul si pixul, de stupiditatea si prostia celor de la NASA. Mie nu mi-a luat prea mult timp sa caut pe Internet informatii despre subiect si uite, bingo.

It's fun to shoot some people: US General
10:19 AM February 4
A senior US Marine Corps General who said it was "fun to shoot some people" should have chosen his words more carefully but will not be disciplined, military officials have said.
Lieutenant General James Mattis, who led troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, made the comments at a conference on Tuesday in San Diego.
"Actually it's quite fun to fight them, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up front with you, I like brawling," said Lt Gen Mattis.
"You go into Afghanistan, Lt Gen Mattis said during a panel discussion.
"You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them."

The audience laughed and applauded after he made his remarks, which were shown on US television.

In a statement, General Michael Hagee, commander of the Marine Corps, praised Lt Gen Mattis as "one of this country's bravest and most experienced military leaders".
"While I understand that some people may take issue with the comments made by him, I also know he intended to reflect the unfortunate and harsh realities of war," Gen Hagee said.

-------------------------------------------------------------
HAHAHA... alba - neagra... sus de sapte, jos de sapte si la mijloc de trei ori...

A lot of a fun to shoot people!!! OK guys lets have fun strat shooting at me... hahahaha...
Poti sa ma numesti anit-american daca vrei dar nu voi accepta declaratiile Lt Gen Mattis. Poate si copii lui au fun, iau pusca lui tac'su si se duc la scoala sa impuste citiva colegi...

Daca vrei sa afli mai multe motive pentru care unii devin "anti-americani" iti pot atasa transcriptul interviului de asta noapte a lui Rumsfeld la programul lui Larry King.

Good bye little american puppet. God be with you!

Nu stiu daca ati observat, dar linkul este de pe pagina de turism este de la Februarie 2006, unde mi se pare logic sa fie under construction.
Pentru februarie 2005 asta este linkul, cu un singur festival postat. http://www.romaniatourism.com/february.html

P.S. N-am nici o legatura cu site-ul respectiv.
Si o intrebare, de ce posturile mele de acum 1-2 zile nu au ajuns niciodata pe site?

Mesajul meu de ieri era:

Recunosc ca sunt unul dintre cei care vroiam sa trimit fotografii Tearului Masca, dar dupa o discutie cu Ionut Dipse si posturile de aici si de pe fotomagazin, m-am razgandit. Am realizat ca acesta este un obicei prost prin care noi cei amatori si mici putem dauna celor care intr-adevar fac bani din fotografie, desi acest lucru este destul de rar in Romania. Tocmai pentru ca acest lucru sa se intample mai des, sa se castige intr-adevar din fotografie in Romania, noi amatorii nu trebuie sa dam gratis fotografii nimanui care ar scoate bani din aceste imagini.
Asa cum un pictor castiga din vanzarea unei picturi, desi poate asteapta multi ani pentru asta si fotografia ar trebui sa aiba acelasi statut de arta si sa fie platita si considerata ca atare. Pana la urma fotografia este pictura cu lumina.

P.S. Sa ma prezint, sunt Dan Tataru, iar umila mea contributie la fotografie se regaseste in mare parte pe site-ul http://dante.ug.ro

IN MEMORY OF PETRE BUZOIANU - de Adela Adriana Moscu la: 06/03/2005 20:44:21
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
IN MEMORY OF PETRE BUZOIANU

With such a deep sadness I force myself to stay at this computer so that I may invite all of you who knew the talented Romanian-American GlamourModels Photographer (www.photofashion.net-founder of EXCES Magazine), Peter Buzoianu, to take a moment from your busy lives and pray for his soul, which departed from his body on Monday, February 21, 2005 in Italy due to a heart attack. He and his Romanian lovely wife Andreea Angelescu, as well a talented and beautiful photographer and ex-model and dancer, were in Italy during a photography engagement. I had the brief pleasure of getting to know Peter through the conversation club that takes place at www.cafeneaua.com, where I posted a few of my poems just a few months ago. We exchanged a few e-mails, and a lovely phone conversation that touched my soul in such a deep and sublime way. With his pleasant timber voice, in such an engaging, honest and charming manner he talked with me about his background, about his family and his artistic aspirations and dreams. I was planning to have him take a picture of me for the book of poetry that I am working on, and wish to publish as soon as possible. This morning Sunday March 6, 2005 around 11:00 AM I called him to make arrangements for a photography session with him. To my horrible shock at the other end of the line his wife told me: “ I don’t know how to tell you this but Peter died two weeks ago!” She was still in Italy at the moment but will be arriving in New York tomorrow. Let’s keep her and the rest of the family, loved ones, and friends as well in divine light and prayers so that they may overcome this tragic loss. What else can I say now after a good one hour cry? That I wish I met Peter in person to be touched by his great talent and personality, that I wish I had prioritized my time in a wiser way, that I could have called him and had more wonderful conversations that inspired me as an artist? I thank God that at least I told him over the phone how charming, and adorable he was. I will always remember him as a pleasant, friendly, honest, sensitive artist, with a wonderful sense of humor who loved his wife, family, friends, poeple, life, and art. Wherever you are Peter please know that I love you and pray for your soul. It is so terrible that we were not able to become better friends and I hope that your wife will have me in hers, and that I can be of a healing presence for her. The gift that you left for me, Peter, is the lesson to live in the moment and make more time for art and for my dreams. I miss you...most likely so many do...You made us proud of your photography work! May God bless you now, and always! ADELA-ADRIANA MOSCU

sa revenim cu picioarele pe pamant - de yogi bear la: 03/12/2005 10:09:52
(la: Gregorian Bivolaru - MISA, guru şi servicii secrete)
Cei care vor sa se convinga daca yoga/MISA este buna sau nu pot sa citeasca site-ul: http://www.yogaesoteric .org

Nimeni nu poate fi convins prin vorbarie mai mult sau mai putin sterila.
Discutia a luat o turnura extrem de interesanta si de elevata dar cred ca se pierde esentialul din vedere.
Articolul initial al acestui tread, cel care este vizibil intotdeauna, pentru orice nou venit, contine minciuni grosolane si este discriminator fata de practicantii de yoga, autorul sau intrand sub incidenta legii. Acest lucru trebuia amintit la fiecare postare.

O.G. nr.137/2000 - privind prevenirea si sanctionarea tuturor formelor de discriminare.
Dreptul la demnitatea personalã

Art. 19. - Constituie contravenþie, conform prezentei ordonanþe, dacã fapta nu intrã sub incidenþa legii penale, orice comportament manifestat în public, având caracter de propagandã naþionalist-ºovinã, de instigare la urã rasialã sau naþionalã, ori acel comportament care are ca scop sau vizeazã atingerea demnitãþii ori crearea unei atmosfere de intimidare, ostile, degradante, umilitoare sau ofensatoare, îndreptat împotriva unei persoane, unui grup de persoane sau unei comunitãþi ºi legat de apartenenþa acestora la o anumitã rasã, naþionalitate, etnie, religie, categorie socialã sau la o categorie defavorizatã ori de convingerile, sexul sau orientarea sexualã a acestuia.

.....

Art. 20. - (1) Contravenþiile prevãzute la art. 5-8, art. 10, art. 15 alin. (1), (3) ºi (6), art. 16, art. 17 alin. (1), art. 18 ºi 19 se sancþioneazã cu amendã de la 2.000.000 lei la 20.000.000 lei, dacã discriminarea vizeazã o persoanã fizicã, respectiv cu amendã de la 4.000.000 lei la 40.000.000 lei, dacã discriminarea vizeazã un grup de persoane sau o comunitate.@
(2) Sancþiunile se aplicã ºi persoanelor juridice.

Ca MISA si yoghinii sunt discriminati o dovedesc Raportul Amnesty International pe 2004:
http://web.amnesty.org/report2005/rom-summary-eng
...
"Some people were deliberately intimidated by police at the behest of local authorities. For example, in February police raided a student dormitory in Bucharest after protests about the lack of hot water. In March, police searched the homes of members of a socially stigmatized yoga movement, MISA, and ill-treated some of them, capturing this inhuman and degrading treatment on film and broadcasting it on television.

CAMPANIA ÎMPOTRIVA MIŞCĂRII PENTRU INTEGRARE SPIRITUALĂ ÎN ABSOLUT ŞI ÎNCĂLCAREA DREPTURILOR ŞI LIBERTĂŢILOR MEMBRILOR ORI SIMPATIZANŢILOR MISA


I. MISA ŞI CAMPANIILE ÎMPOTRIVA EI

Ce este MISA ?

Mişcarea pentru Integrare Spirituală în Absolut a fost înfiinţată ca asociaţie non-profit prin Hotărârea judecătorească din 23 ianuarie 1990 pronunţată de Judecătoria Sector 1 Bucureşti. Ea are caracter socio-profesional, filosofic, experimental-educativ, avînd drept scop ridicarea nivelului spiritual prin popularizarea cunoştinţelor si practicilor yoga.

Cel care este considerat mentorul spiritual al Mişcării, Gregorian Bivolaru, a fost controlat permanent de Securitate, pentru astfel de activităţi, până în 1989. El a fost închis de două ori, apoi internat într-un spital psihiatric destinat oponenţilor politici ai regimului comunist, pentru acelaşi gen de practici ca şi cele de astăzi.

MISA a deschis cursuri de yoga şi de informare asupra unor tratamente naturiste. Liderii organizaţiei evaluează la circa 45.000 numărul celor care au practicat yoga în cadrul pregătit de MISA. Instructorii care predau yoga sunt membri MISA ori au înţelegere cu MISA să facă cursuri sub egida asociaţiei.

MISA a publicat cărţi şi scoate un buletin lunar.

Campanii anterioare vizând MISA şi membrii ori simpatizanţii acesteia şi investigaţiile făcute pentru verificarea acuzaţiilor

APADOR-CH a avut două investigaţii privind campaniile anterioare împotriva MISA şi a membrilor ori simpatizanţilor săi. Ele au fost publicate în rapoartele anuale ale APADOR-CH – pe anul 1996 şi anul 1997. Reprezentanţilor APADOR-CH li s-au adus la cunoştinţă şi alte violări ale drepturilor şi libertăţilor membrilor ori simpatizanţilor MISA, după 1997. Cum în timp, situaţiile care au generat plângeri au fost considerate rezolvate de către conducerea MISA, APADOR-CH a renunţat să facă investigaţii fără cererea reprezentanţilor Mişcării.



II. CAMPANIA VIOLENTĂ DIN ANUL 2004

Precedentul campaniei din Târgu Mureş, septembrie - octombrie 2003

În luna septembrie 2003, presa din Târgu Mureş, televiziunea locală Antena 1, ediţia locală a Jurnalului Naţional şi apoi alte mijloace de presă au lansat o campanie împotriva instructorilor şi simpatizanţilor yoga din oraş şi a MISA, organizaţia care deschisese aceste cursuri. Aceştia au fost acuzaţi de consum de droguri, orgii sexuale, evaziune fiscală, fără prezentarea nici unor probe. Doi dintre instructori au fost chemaţi la Centrul Zonal de Combatere a Crimei Organizate şi Antidrog. Aici au fost jigniţi şi intimidaţi pentru a da declaraţii compromiţătoare la adresa MISA şi a mentorului spiritual al Mişcării, Gregorian Bivolaru. Conform declaraţiilor celor în cauză, inspectorul anchetator Beldeanu a afirmat că îi va ucide pe ei şi pe Gregorian Bivolaru “în afara orelor de serviciu“.

Emisiunile “Actualitatea mureşană“ din 2 octombrie 2003 şi apoi emisiunea “Observator“ din 3 octombrie 2003, au prezentat în direct o listă de persoane care au practicat yoga dându-le numele şi locul de muncă. Prin acuzarea lor pentru “acte de ilegalitate“, “spălare de creiere“, “folosirea de substanţe halucinogene“, acţiunea reprezenta o incitare a opiniei publice împotriva practicanţilor yoga. Efectele au apărut imediat : unii dintre cei numiţi au fost chemaţi de către conducătorii unităţilor şi ameninţaţi că vor fi daţi afară din serviciu, dacă vor continua să urmeze cursurile de yoga. Alţii au avut probleme în familie.

Având în vedere felul în care au decurs acţiunile din Târgu Mureş, atitudinea anchetatorilor faţă de cei chemaţi la Centrul Regional, campania din toamna anului 2003 pare să fi pregătit amplele desfăşurări de forţe contra membrilor şi simpatizanţilor MISA începute în luna martie 2004, în Bucureşti.

Descinderea jandarmilor din 18 martie 2004

La data de 18 martie 2004, peste 300 sute de jandarmi, procurori, poliţişti şi lucrători SRI, folosind cagule, au forţat simultan 16 imobile în care se aflau membri MISA. Au fost sparte uşile şi geamurile deşi intrarea în clădiri se putea face fără obstacole. Cei găsiţi au fost maltrataţi, trântiţi şi ţintuiţi la pământ sub ameninţarea armelor, unora li s-au pus cătuşe. Au fost persoane care au fost ţinute sub ameninţarea armelor ore întregi. În unele clădiri s-a tras cu armele în aer.

Obţinerea semnăturilor pe declaraţiile dictate de procuror s-a făcut prin ameninţare. Au fost ridicate bunuri personale fără consemnarea în procesul verbal de percheziţie a tot ce s-a luat. Reţinuţii au fost împiedicaţi să ia legătura cu apărătorii lor.

Aceste acţiuni au fost filmate şi date la posturile de televiziune. Ulterior, în presa electronică au ajuns şi alte imagini luate cu ocazia descinderilor, menite să discrediteze pe cei reţinuţi şi să sugereze opiniei publice vinovăţia lor. Nimeni însă nu a fost arestat preventiv sau reţinut în urma descinderilor.

În zilele următoare au continuat percheziţiile - peste 20. Din imobile în care s-a intrat şi din cele 15 locuri de depozitare a bunurilor MISA s-au ridicat abuziv camioane de materiale.

Campania de presă

Prezentări incitator-calomniatoare

Următoarele citate din ziare (la fel s-a vorbit şi la posturile de televiziune) imediat după intervenţia unităţilor de jandarmi demonstrează prin ele înseşi caracterul incitator-calomnios al prezentărilor: “În timpul descinderilor au fost găsite diferite substanţe, despre care nu se poate spune, deocamdată dacă sunt stupefiante” (Cotidianul, 22 martie); “…acţiunea a fost declanşată şi ca urmare a sesizărilor formulate de mai mulţi cetăţeni cu privire la activităţi de prostituţie şi trafic de droguri în mai multe cartiere mărginaşe ale Bucureştiului”; “autorităţile statului au acţionat în imobile unde se desfăşurau activităţi de video-chat-uri pornografice şi erotice neautorizate” (Ziua, 20 martie); “Material porno în casa unui cadru didactic universitar” (Evenimentul zilei, 22 martie); “în acest camion au fost descoperite materiale compromiţătoare, printre care reviste pornografice şi cărţi ale cultului MISA” (Adevărul, 22 martie) ş.a.m.d. S-a folosit în mod deliberat, la adresa MISA, termenul “sectă”.

Presa a susţinut deci, pe parcursul primelor zile de la evenimente, acţiunile forţelor de ordine încercând să inducă în opinia publică ideea vinovăţiei celor perchezionaţi şi reţinuţi în data de 18 martie 2004. Este puţin probabil ca ziariştii să nu ştie că poliţia nu are dreptul să intre într-o casă privată pe motiv că “există delicte în cartier”. Deţinerea materialelor porno nu este ilegală şi nici dialogul erotic prin Internet nu are nevoie de aprobare. Acuzele care au pus accentul pe elementele gândite drept scandaloase - sex, urinoterapie - au fost cu atât mai gratuite cu cât aceleaşi mijloace de presă folosesc în mod curent imagini cu caracter erotic şi un limbaj ce poate fi considerat, în raport cu atitudinea pudibondă arătată în acest caz, scandalos.

Practic, majoritatea mijloacelor de presă au încercat să “asmută” populaţia împotriva membrilor şi simpatizanţilor MISA, să determine o vânătoare de vrăjitoare. Este relevant, în acest sens, anunţul dovedit fals, că Gregorian Bivolaru a fost dus la Poliţie de către un grup de persoane. Felul în care era făcut anunţul constituia o invitaţie adresată populaţiei să hăituiască membrii MISA.

Intoxicarea presei de către autorităţi

Informaţiile din presă au fost preluate de către ziarişti de la autorităţi, care au lansat în opinia publică o lungă serie de acuzaţii: folosirea drogurilor, trafic de persoane, etc. După cum s-a demonstrat la sfârşit, aceste acuzaţii au fost gratuite. Filmările din timpul percheziţiilor au fost făcute pentru a induce în opinia publică ideea de vinovăţie. Violându-se complet dreptul la propria imagine, imaginile filmate au fost transmise de către organele de anchetă presei şi prezentate pe posturile de televiziune. Astfel, una din seringele aflate în posesia unei doctoriţe a fost prezentată ca fiind folosită pentru injectarea drogurilor. Situaţia a obligat mai mulţi membri MISA să ceară Institutului Naţional Medico-Legal să constate că nu aveau droguri în sânge.

Imaginea Petrachei Natalia Elenacare a fost luată din toaletă cu chiloţii în vine şi aşezată sub ameninţarea armei lângă portarul clădirii în care se afla, a fost prezentată ca arătând promiscuitatea în care trăiesc membrii MISA. Mai multe fotografii ale practicanţilor yoga, în costum de baie, găsite la percheziţie, au fost prezentate pe posturile TV. Uneori, succesiunea de imagini reale era amestecată cu imagini preluate din alte surse, pentru a realiza un montaj convingător.

Punctul maxim al încălcării intolerabile a vieţii private a fost trimiterea Jurnalului personal al minorei Mădălina Dumitru la ziare şi publicarea lui. Autoarea a declarat că acestea reprezintă fanteziile sale erotice. Totuşi, Jurnalul a stat la baza arestării ulterioare a lui Gregorian Bivolaru.

Autosesizarea presei
Că instituţiile implicate în hăituirea MISA au fost principala sursă de intoxicare o arată faptul ca presa a luat de la un moment dat distanţă faţă de intervenţia autorităţilor. Acestea au început să observe că datele oferite de autorităţi nu se susţin: “Amploarea dată cazului Bivolaru ... este cu greu justificată de dovezile prezentate, ieri, de reprezentanţii instituţiilor implicate în această anchetă: Parchetul, Poliţia, Procuratura” (Cotidianul, 25 martie 2004).

Şi alte ziare au acuzat autorităţile, ulterior, de a fi încercat o manipulare politică. Una dintre explicaţiile cele mai vehiculate a fost aceea că întreaga campanie împotriva MISA şi a mentorului spiritual Gregorian Bivolaru s-a desfăşurat pentru a acoperi fuga unui apropiat al partidului de guvernământ închis pentru fraudă, Gabriel Bivolaru – uşor de confundat cu “Gregorian”.

Pentru manifestarea cu mai multă circumspecţie a presei a contat, într-o anumită măsură, şi un prim comunicat de protest al APADOR-CH dat publicităţii la 15 aprilie 2004.În analiza sa, APADOR-CH a subliniat că dacă unii membri sau simpatizanţi ai MISA au comis fapte penale, pentru care există dovezi certe, aceştia vor răspunde în faţa instanţelor de judecată cu titlu individual, conform unor proceduri şi judecăţi echitabile.

Violarea drepturilor şi libertăţilor fundamentale

Măsurile luate de autorităţi împotriva unor membri ori simpatizanţi ai MISA şi împotriva Mişcării ca atare au fost ilegale, disproporţionate, combinând intimidarea, incitarea şi hărţuirea cu acuzarea şi reţinerea abuzivă. Au fost încălcate în aceste evenimente libertatea persoanei, prezumţia de nevinovăţie, dreptul la apărare, respectarea vieţii private, dreptul de a manifesta paşnic ş.a.:

Pe durata percheziţiilor derulate mai multe zile - începute pe 18 martie 2004, procurorii, jandarmii, poliţiştii şi cadrele din SRI, cei mai mulţi purtând cagule, au acţionat brutal, folosind nemotivat/excesiv forţa şi încalcând procedurile:

- au spart uşi şi geamuri pentru a pătrunde în locuinţe fără ca vreunul din ei să fi întâmpinat vreun obstacol;

- locatarii au fost loviţi, trântiţi la pământ şi ameninţaţi cu arma. Peste 80 dintre ei au fost duşi la parchet unde au fost obligaţi să dea declaraţii sub ameninţare;

- au ridicat mari cantităţi de obiecte şi înscrisuri fără o raţiune palpabilă: încheierea şi conţinutul proceselor verbale de percheziţie au fost viciate;

- mandatele de percheziţie nu au fost prezentate întotdeauna la intrarea în imobile;

- în multe descinderi nu a fost lăsată vreo copie a Procesului Verbal de percheziţie;

- au filmat membri ori simpatizanţi MISA îmbrăcaţi sumar sau aflaţi în posturi umilitoare;

- au împiedicat membrii sau simpatizanţii MISA să ia legătura cu apărătorii lor.

Încălcarea drepturilor şi libertăţilor din timpul acţiunilor începute de “organele de ordine” pe 18 aprilie 2004 au continuat prin violarea vieţii private şi a dreptului la propria imagine. Fotografiile şi filmările făcute în timpul descinderilor au fost utlizate în scopul discreditării victimelor. Autorităţile au trimis la posturile de televiziune imagini însoţite de comentarii falsificatoare.

Acţiunile în forţă ale procurorilor, jandarmilor, poliţiştilor şi cadrelor SRI au încălcat normele garantate de Constituţie, de legislaţia internă (în particular, de Codul de procedură penală) şi de documentele internaţionale ratificate de România.

Victimele au depus numeroase plângeri în care au reclamat încălcarea drepturilor şi libertăţilor lor. Caracterul flagrant al acestor încălcări obligă Ministerul public să se autosesizeze, iar conducătorii Ministerelor ori a altor instituţii implicate au datoria să ia încă din acest moment măsuri administrative împotriva vinovaţilor. Cercetarea şi sancţionarea lucrătorilor SRI, a poliţiştilor, jandarmilor şi procurorilor care au încălcat drepturile omului şi libertăţile fundamentale înainte, în timpul şi după descinderile şi investigaţiile în cazul MISA sunt indispensabile pentru salvarea principiilor statului democratic.

Violarea dreptului la asociere

Dreptul de asociere include asigurarea personalităţii juridice, iar acest drept i-a fost acordat MISA în 1990 şi nu i-a fost retras după această dată. Totuşi, dreptul de asociere înseamnă şi că nimeni nu va fi afectat prin participarea la activităţile organizaţiei în cauză. De asemenea, nimeni nu va fi intimidat dacă doreşte să adere la organizaţie; dacă doreşte să colaboreze cu ea sau să-şi exprime simpatia; dacă vrea să participe la acţiunile ei. În caz contrar, asocierea formală sau subiectivă a persoanei în cauză nu este liberă.

De ani de zile, membrii MISA şi simpatizanţii ei sunt supuşi discreditării şi hărţuirii publice, cu incitarea şi participarea directă a unor instituţii româneşti - Parchetul, Jandarmeria, Serviciul Român de Informaţii, Ministerul Justiţiei, Ministerul Admnistraţiei şi Internelor ş.a.

În mod particular, sunt preocupante:

- percheziţionarea şi reţinerea nejustificată a unor membri şi simpatizanţi MISA;

- calomnierea lor;

- ameninţarea membrilor şi simpatizanţilor MISA de a fi daţi afară din serviciu datorită afilierii lor;

- investigarea MISA şi a simpatizanţilor de către Serviciul Român de Informaţii.

Urmare a acţiunilor de denigrare şi hărţuire, mai multe persoane au fost nevoite să renunţe la frecventarea cursurilor de Yoga organizate de MISA iar relaţiile unor membri ori simpatizanţi MISA cu colectivul de lucru sau cu familia au avut de suferit.

8. Implicarea Serviciului Român de Informaţii în hărţuirea MIS

Serviciul Român de Informaţii s-a implicat direct în acţiunile de supraveghere şi hărţuire cu justificarea că MISA ar fi o formaţiune paramilitară şi că ar reprezenta un pericol pentru siguranţa naţională. Persoana juridică MISA a fost vizată ca atare, deşi acuzaţiile curente: încălcarea legii drepturilor de autor, răspândirea de materiale pornografice ş.a. nu au legătură cu siguranţa naţională. În ceea ce priveşte alte acuzaţii, mai grave - crearea unor formaţiuni paramilitare, trafic de droguri, trafic de persoane - ele s-au dovedit fără absolut nici un temei.

Acţiunile SRI au încălcat dreptul fundamental la viaţă privată şi la libertatea de asociere. Decizia de supraveghere a MISA de către instituţia care protejează siguranţa naţională a României a fost cu totuldisproporţionată.

9. Tratamentul minorei Mădălina Dumitru

Între abuzurile comise de autorităţi în cazul MISA, una impresionează prin gravitate: tratamentul inuman şi degradant la care a fost supusă Mădălina Dumitru, minoră în vârstă de 17 ani. Deşi nu avea decât calitatea de martoră în procesul intentat lui Gregorian Bivolaru, minora, reţinută la 18 martie 2004 în timpul descinderilor în locuinţa unde locuia, a fost tratată ca o infractoare. Ea a fost privată de libertate, supusă unor presiuni şi violenţe pentru că a revenit asupra unei declaraţii iniţiale, smulse pentru a-l incrimina pe mentorul MISA. Pe 1 aprilie 2004, Mădălina Dumitru a fost dusă cu forţa la INML unde urma să fie examinată ginecologic, în ciuda refuzului categoric al victimei. Minora a fost permanent înconjurată de poliţişti şi jandarmi, la INML a fost despărţită de apărătoarea ei, fără ca ulterior să mai ia legătura cu ea. A fost izolată de colegii şi logodnicul ei. Tratamentul inuman la care a fost supusă a făcut-o să treacă prin momente de criză.

Comisia pentru Protecţia Copilului a hotărât la 7 aprilie 2004 să o plaseze pe Mădălina Dumitru în familia surorii mamei sale. Această măsură a fost luată împotriva voinţei ei. Minora este ţinută în familia surorii, neavând voie să se deplaseze singură şi fără să se poată întâlni cu nimeni. Minora este împiedicată:

- să urmeze şcoala;

- să ia legătura cu apărătorii ei;

- să facă plângeri împotriva celor care îi încălcă drepturile şi libertăţile;

- să se căsătorească cu logodnicul ei, cerere adusă la cunoştinţa opiniei publice de către cei doi.

Faptul că regimul la care a fost supusă Mădălina Dumitru de către autorităţi nu a avut motive umanitare şi educaţionale s-a probat prin actul lor scandalos de a da presei jurnalul ei privat. Presa a publicat copios citate din fanteziile erotice ale minorei. Acţiunea de discreditare publică la care au cooperat cei care au confiscat jurnalul privat şi presa intră în conflict flagrant cu invocarea responsabilităţilor faţă de minoră.

III. Concluzii
(a) Descinderile brutale, nemotivate, efectuate la data de 18 martie 2004, la Bucureşti, la care au luat parte peste 300 sute de jandarmi, procurori, poliţişti şi lucrători SRI, sunt un eveniment dintr-o lungă serie de acţiuni care au avut ca ţintă MISA şi mişcarea yoga din România. Acţiuni represive şi campanii calomniatoare contra MISA şi simpatizanţilor yoga au avut loc şi anterior, şi în alte locuri din ţară. Dar intervenţia parchetului, jandarmilor şi Servicului Român de Informaţii în evenimentele din martie 2004 nu a atins totuşi niciodată asemenea proporţii. Este vorba despre cea mai gravă încălcare a democraţiei de la mineriade încoace.

(b) Presa a fost implicată în campaniile calomniatoare împotriva MISA, folosind fără discriminare “datele” puse la dispoziţie de autorităţile publice. A fost grav încălcat codul deontologic al presei: obligaţia de a informa corect opinia publică, prezumţia de nevinovăţie, verificarea informaţiilor, respectul demnităţii umane. De o gravitate deosebită trebuie considerată difuzarea prin presă a jurnalului minorei Mădălina Dumitru, conţinând fanteziile sale erotice. De la un punct încolo, unii ziarişti au luat distanţă faţă de abuzul autorităţilor. Mulţi dintre ei au acuzat autorităţile de folosirea cazului MISA în scopuri politice.

(c) În timpul descinderilor şi în timpul investigaţiilor ulterioare, autorităţile statului au încălcat grav drepturile şi libertăţile fundamentale, printre care : intimidarea, incitarea şi hărţuirea, reţinerea abuzivă, prezumţia de nevinovăţie, dreptul la apărare, respectarea vieţii private, dreptul de a manifesta paşnic, dreptul la propria imagine ş.a.

acuma la partea serioasa:
la revista 'jane's defence weekly' are acces aproape toata lumea. probabil de acolo s-au luat informatiile 'tehnice'
1. e vorba te o tehnologie militara care nu a fost inca suficient experimentata si nu e stapanita inca la nivelul ca se poate aplica imediat
2. pentru ca o noua tehnologie sa fie introdusa in aviatia civila, ia ani de zile: in primul rand sa fie adaptata cerintelor de securitate (de zbor) si nevoilor obiective
3. numai omologarea de catre FAA (federal aviation authority) ia cam un an de zile.
asa ca nu vad nimic suspect in declaratia lui bush.

On 16 February 2000 Northrop Grumman Corp. of San Diego CA was awarded a $71,999,635 modification to a cost-plus-award-fee contract, MDA972-95-3-0013, to provide for two prototype Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicles, associated system modification, and engineering support. Expected contract completion date is March 31, 2002.

sublinierile in 'bold' imi apartin.

advanced tehnology demonstrator inseamna ca nu e operational cel putin cativa ani. faptul ca a zburat in aprilie nu face tehnologia aplicabila imediat.
daca te uiti si in:
http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/global/ .
ai sa vezi ca a fost autorizat sa zboare in spatiul aerian al USA abia in 2003 (zborurile de incercare se desfasoara in zone in care nu trec avioane civile). de aici pana la introducerea tehnologiei pe avioane civile e drum lung...
deci ceea ce a spus bush nu-i chiar asa suspect. se referea la faptul systemul ca va fi introdus in viitor. oricum ar fi fost un act iresponsabil din partea lui sa zica ca are ceea ce nu putea sa aiba.
si nu cred ca ai vrea sa zbori cu un avion care are un sistem neomologat....
*march 31, 2002 se refera la completarea programului experimental, asa cum se obisnuieste in contracte de genul asta.

la problemele fundamentale ale existentei exista si raspunsuri simple. asta a caracterizat dintotdeauna mintile luminate. vezi alexandru cel mare si nodul gordian. daca ala se apuca de cautat probleme acolo unde nu-s, nu mai auzea nimeni de el...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teoctist

Teoctist I born Toader Arãpaºu on February 29, 1915,
is since 1986 the Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox
Church.

He was born as the tenth of the eleven children of
Dumitru and Marghioala Arãpaºu, of Tocileni, Botoºani
County.

In 1928 he became a novice at Sihãstria Voronei
hermitage and later at Vorona Monastery He became a
monk on 6 August 1935 at the Bistriþa-Neamþ Monastery.
In 1940, he began his studies at Theology School at
the University of Bucharest, which he graduated in
1945. On March 1, 1945, he was sent to Iaºi, where he
was ordained hieromonk on 25 March 1945 and
archimandrite in 1946. Between 1946 and 1947, he
studied Letters and Philosophy at the University of
Iaºi.

At the beginning of the year 1947, the Holy Synod of
the Romanian Orthodox Church revoked the archimandrite
rank due to his pro-Communist opinions, the decision
being published in the official newsletter of the
Romanian Patriarchy, the "Biserica Ortodoxã Românã"
magazine, no. 1-3 of January-March 1947.

Arãpaºu associated with an archiereus-vicar, Justinian
Marina, also a pro-communist cleric who attacked in
press his superior, Irineu Mihãlcescu, the mitropolite
of Moldavia. In the meantime, the Communists gained
power in Romania and the Communist authorities
replaced Irineu Mihãlcescu with Justinian Marina. In
1948, Justinian became Patriarch of Romania and
shortly after, in 1950, Teoctist became patriarchal
bishop-vicar, being the secretary of the Holy Synod
and the rector of the Universitary Theological
Institute of Bucharest between 1950 and 1954.

In 1962, he was named bishop of Arad. In 1963, an
attempt to make him the leader of the Romanian
Orthodox community of the United States failed after
the US authorities refused to grant him a visa. In
1973, he became the Archbishop of Craiova and
Metropolitan of Oltenia and in 1977 the Metropolitan
of Moldavia and Suceava. In 1981, he used money of the
Orthodox Church to sponsor the Politehnica Iaºi
football team.

In 1986, he became the Patriarch of the Romanian
Orthodox Church. As patriarch, he was an ally of the
Communist authorities, aproving the demolition of 26
historical churches in Bucharest. He also send many
felicitation telegrams to Nicolae Ceauºescu, who also
gave many old valuable printings and other heritage
objects.

After the Romanian Revolution of 1989 he resigned and
fled to the Sinaia Monastery and in January 1990, the
Holy Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church accepted
his resignation. The new power, lead by Ion Iliescu
called him back to Bucharest and in March 1990, he
returned to lead the Romanian Orthodox Church and one
month later, in April 1990 the Holy Synod revoked its
decision of accepting the resignation.

After 1989, various accusations were made in the
Romanian press, including that he was a collaborator
of the Securitate, the political police in Romania,
that he was a homosexual and a legionary who
participated in the vandalizing of a Bucharest
sinagogue. The last two accusations were based on a
1950 file found in the archives of the Securitate. The
official response of the Orthodox Church was that the
file was made by the Soviets with the intent of
destroying the Romanian Church

CALGARY, Alberta--(CCNMatthews - Feb 9, 2006) -

iStockphoto, the world's leading stock photography community,
today announced that it has been acquired by Getty Images, Inc.
(NYSE:GYI), the world's leading creator and distributor of visual content.
The acquisition underscores the growing importance of social media and places

buyers at all price points on all platforms and in all markets.
