Litany for Gun Violence Prevention offered for use in Sunday…

first_img Advocacy Peace & Justice, Jed Holdorph says: Sandy Stone says: Cathedral Dean Boise, ID June 14, 2016 at 4:40 pm This business of “Barack, our president” has a tone of affection and political endorsement that I think is inappropriate in a religious liturgy. Jose W. Mestre says: Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET June 17, 2016 at 6:25 pm I agree with you Charles. I too own guns that I use for sport and home protection. I agree that if someone want to shoot up a place, they will find a way to obtain the guns they want, and that is because they don’t have to necessarily buy them legally. We need to pray that this country starts to seriously address the issue of gun trafficking and the illegal guns that most criminals have easy access to. Pray that we get a President and Congress that is wise enough and tough enough to do that job. Pray for Illegal guns to be eliminated from our streets and our cities. Brother Tupper, TSSF says: Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Anne Ferguson says: Rick Lewis says: Rector Washington, DC Featured Events [Episcopal News Service] The following Litany for Gun Violence Prevention is written by the Rt. Rev. Stephen T. Lane, Episcopal bishop of Maine, and offered for use in liturgies throughout the Episcopal Church this coming Sunday or at any other time.The litany is available as downloadable bulletin inserts in English here and in Spanish here.A full Eucharistic liturgy, prepared by St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, is available here.Giver of Life and Love, you created all people as one family and called us to live together in harmony and peace. Surround us with your love as we face the challenges and tragedies of gun violence.For our dear ones, for our neighbors, for strangers and aliens, and those known to you alone, Loving God,Make us instruments of your peace.God of Righteousness, you have given our leaders, especially Barack, our President, the members of Congress, the judges of our courts and members of our legislatures, power and responsibility to protect us and to uphold our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.For all who bear such responsibility, for all who struggle to discern what is right in the face of powerful political forces, Loving God,Make us instruments of your peace.God of Compassion, we give you thanks for first responders, for police officers, firefighters and EMTs, and all those whose duties bring them to the streets, the lobbies, the malls and the homes where the carnage of gun violence takes place day after day. Give them courage and sound judgment in the heat of the moment and grant them compassion for the victims.For our brothers and sisters who risk their lives and their serenity as they rush to our aid, Loving God,Make us instruments of your peace.Merciful God, bind up the wounds of all who suffer from gun violence, those maimed and disfigured, those left alone and grieving, and those who struggle to get through one more day. Bless them with your presence and help them find hope.For all whose lives are forever marked by the scourge of gun violence, Loving God,Make us instruments of your peace.God Who Remembers, may we not forget those who have died in the gun violence that we have allowed to become routine. Receive them into your heart and comfort us with your promise of eternal love and care.For all who have died, those who die today, and those who will die tomorrow, Loving God,Make us instruments of your peace.God of Justice, help us, your church, find our voice. Empower us to change this broken world and to protest the needless deaths caused by gun violence. Give us power to rise above our fear that nothing can be done and grant us the conviction to advocate for change.For your dream of love and harmony, Loving God,Make us instruments of your peace.All this we pray in the name of the One who offered his life so that we might live, Jesus the Christ.  Amen. John Myers says: June 21, 2016 at 4:22 pm We must do something about America’s insane obsession about guns. They are the easiest and quickest tool for murder so limiting their use would be a good first step. Also, we should encourage the sale of “smart” guns; where only the owner can fire the gun. June 14, 2016 at 6:50 pm Thanks for your response. It seems that the litany would be stronger, and less polarizing, if it addressed all violence and didn’t focus on a tool. By focusing on guns and not on the causes of violence, this litany runs the risk of devaluing the victims of violence and of demonizing those of us who own and use guns lawfully and responsibly. (Yes, I’m a gun owner.) I’d like the Bishops United Against Gun Violence to hear from more Episcopalians who own guns and are committed to working to reduce violence. Youth Minister Lorton, VA June 16, 2016 at 11:04 am But he didn’t use fertilizer. If it were just as easy, as you say, he’d probably have done so (seems it would have been more effective for his goals). Instead, he used guns. Legally obtained guns. Michael Staley says: June 14, 2016 at 7:12 pm No, it’s not the only violence we care about; but it certainly is on our minds the week following one of the deadliest gun massacres of our day. Charles Browning says: June 14, 2016 at 7:15 pm Literally our country leads the developed world for gun violence, even adjusting for population. It’s a reasonable thing to pray about. I’m a gun owner and I have both victims of gun violence and victims of other violence in my life, and I think this litany sounds helpful, powerful, and appropriate. Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ June 14, 2016 at 5:23 pm The phrasing of “Barack, our president” is entirely consistent with other forms of the Prayers of the People and appropriate here, for that reason. We pray for “N., our president” regardless of whether it is the president of our choosing, implying nothing more in terms of either affection of political endorsement. Press Release Service June 18, 2016 at 10:59 am I know at least one of the bishops, a former police officer, owns a gun. He’s spoken about that openly. I understand it’s hard not to feel defensive but this really isn’t about picking on responsible gun owners. And “gun violence”, as opposed to guns, does cover the other facets of this. Rick Taylor says: An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Jonathan Chesney says: June 14, 2016 at 7:50 pm Wendy I agree with you . The person responsible for the tragedy in Orlando could just have easily used fertilizer to blow the place up. I think I am one of the few people on my side of the fence who believes the problem is not so much about the weapon used as about the pathology of the person that causes mayhem, fear, and damage and death. June 15, 2016 at 8:00 pm Fertilizer and diesel fuel were the ingredients of the bomb that killed 168 in Oklahoma City. Perhaps another example would better serve. Continued Blessings. June 14, 2016 at 8:58 pm I don’t suspect that form of having any political intention. The 1559 Prayer Book uses the form “Elizabeth, our most gracious Queen and governor” in the Litany, and “Elizabeth our queen” in the prayers in the Holy Communion liturgy. The “first name, official position” formula is traditional and common, and that’s probably why it has been used. My church prayed for “George, our president,” and then the Sunday after the inauguration switched to “Barack, our president,” and next January we will pray for “N., our president,” even if some of us don’t like “N.” I find it helpful in reminding me, when it’s an official I wish weren’t in that position, that they are a child of God, in a position of great authority and influence, and that I should pray for them even if I disagree with them. Martha Richards says: June 17, 2016 at 6:39 pm I believe that no one should ever refer to a firearm as a “toy.” I know it was said in a sarcastic manner, but this site has nothing to do with sarcasm. It is about prayer regarding a serious subject. As a responsible firearms owner, I would never refer to my guns as toys. When used responsibly for sport, they are just like a baseball bat . When used irresponsibly, to hurt someone, they are deadly weapons, but so are automobiles, fertilizer, gasoline, and knives. What we need to pray for is for people to stop hating. Hate is what fuels the use of any of these items to be used as objects that contribute to death. Pray for the world to stop hating. Stop hating people you don’t know just because they are different. If someone is a decent human being but dresses differently, it doesn’t make them a person to be feared. It is only those who threaten us that we should fear. We need to pray that those who mean to do us harm are stopped so that the world can take a breath and get back to the work that God wants us to do. Prayer is a powerful thing. Please pray for the world. Comments (36) Rector Collierville, TN Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Todd Bruce says: Heidi Shott says: June 14, 2016 at 6:04 pm I don’t understand the responses to this request ~ why does it appear that everything has to be a struggle. Is it not possible for a people bound together in the Baptismal Covenant to seek peace with one another and bring an end to all forms of violence, strife, and discord, and be of one mind in Christ for the sake of the human community? June 15, 2016 at 12:56 pm Oh dear LORD, it’s a prayer! Pray it, don’t pray it, who cares. But don’t spit in everybody else’s communion cup who try to do something helpful and positive. We didn’t just have 50 people murdered this week by fertilizer. We didn’t have families ripped to shreds by responsible gun owners. Please be mindful of the hurt we cause others by defending our toys, when it was one of our toys that ruined so many lives. Remember: you can’t evangelize and antagonize at the same time. Wendy Owens says: Deacon Katharine Armentrout says: Mary Ann Hill says: Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit a Job Listing Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Curate Diocese of Nebraska Dorothy M. Harrelson says: June 14, 2016 at 5:42 pm Mr. Mason, You are entitled to your opinion about what is appropriate to include in a religious liturgy, and perhaps you are unfamiliar with the Prayers of the People section of the Book of Common Prayer. This can be found on pages 383 – 395. The rubrics, or directions for which intercessions are to be included are as follows: The Universal Church, its members, and its mission; The Nation and all in authority; The welfare of the world; The concerns of the local community; Those who suffer and those in any trouble; The departed (with commemoration of a saint when appropriate). To the best of my recollection, President Barack Obama (or any other president of the USA) is one of those persons “in authority” in the Nation, therefore we often do pray by name for him as well as for the governor of the state in which the prayers are being said.It has nothing to do with “a tone of affection and political endorsement” as you have suggested. Even if you dislike our president (as you seem to imply by stating this concern), consider this: Jesus has commanded us to pray for our enemies. Perhaps you could bring yourself to do so? The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group June 14, 2016 at 5:57 pm We have prayed for our president for a long time, no matter his political party. See Form I (BCP 384), and other places (BCP 390, 820, 821). So no, it is not affection or political endorsement. And, we are instructed to pray not only for those who champion our causes and channel our voices, but especially those with whom we disagree, even our enemies. Including prayers for our president and leaders of government couldn’t be more appropriate for this liturgy and all of our liturgies. June 14, 2016 at 6:35 pm Yes, I agree about the the tone of what can be interpreted as a political endorsement for the president. Suffice to say “…you have given us leaders, our president, the members of congress…” Jay Lassiter says: Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA June 14, 2016 at 6:48 pm This has been used for years for many presidents. It is entirely appropriate and extremely important at this time. Lorraine Rosen says: William Flint says: William Flint says: Submit a Press Release Featured Jobs & Calls Orlando Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Tags June 14, 2016 at 5:11 pm Is this response really necessary at this time, 2 days after the murder of 49 people in a gay night club? It seems urgent to me right now to ask God’s help in addressing the scourge of gun violence in our nation and to grieve the loss of these men and women whose lives were taken by a man who was by any measure severely conflicted and prone to physical and verbal violence. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK June 15, 2016 at 12:11 am Thank you for this valuable liturgical resource.center_img Litany for Gun Violence Prevention offered for use in Sunday services Liturgy & Music, Rector Smithfield, NC June 15, 2016 at 2:09 pm Gun violence is undeniably terrible. Unfortunately, there are more victims of domestic violence in less than one week than gun violence in one year, but domestic violence victims only become a headline if a gun is involved. Worse still are the FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics related to blunt and edged weapon violence victims. May we stop focusing on one branch of the tree and address the disease that is attacking the forrest: violence. June 16, 2016 at 3:57 pm My heart is bleeding. I turned to this website to find ideas about acting in concert as Episcopalians to address some of the violence issues facing us as a country in the wake of Orlando. And what here? Bickering, angry, back and forth quarrels about a prayer, a prayer! This is just like a discussion on MSNBC or Fox News; not like a discussion I hoped to find in my church. Somehow this message-board speaks volumes about how wretchedly divided we are as a nation and, now sadly, even as the church.

Collins says: Submit an Event Listing Rector Knoxville, TN Christine Moseley says: June 18, 2016 at 11:03 am As a priest in the Diocese of Oklahoma, I have to say no, it wouldn’t, and please don’t use the Murrah Building bombing as a red herring. Russ Hoyser says: New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books June 14, 2016 at 1:16 pm I’d say this week we need to focus on gun violence- not that it is all we care about but 93 people dead over the weekend from guns seems like a reason to focus. Domestic violence, sexual violence,violence against the children of God for any reason should be part of our prayers always. Good to be reminded.

The United Methodists when using a common prayer and not a pastoral prayer usually pray for the leaders of the nations of the world inclusive of all elected officials in the federal, state, county and local governments. TEC has split more than once over issues with the BCP. In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Tampa, FL June 14, 2016 at 6:01 pm It is totally “appropriate”…in the Episcopal church we pray for the leaders of our nation in our Prayers of the People all the time…it has nothing to do w/politics…it is praying “for the nation and all in authority” and Barack is our leader at present time. June 26, 2016 at 2:08 am June 21st I survived a shooting. My neighbor, and friend, had a psychotic break and turned a shotgun and semi automatic 22 on us. Dozens of bullets are embedded in our brick walls outside, with ten penetrating and being embedded in our interior walls. Four shotgun blasts, the first of which missed my moms head by a second, came through out windows. We were under siege for fifty minutes. SWAT was called, THREE volleys of shots peppered my home during this time and it is a miracle that my family is even still standing. So you don’t like the words “gun violence”? Well, let me tell you this- a man who was once our friend terrorized us in a way that would have been absolutely impossible to do with a knife. We can scream and cry about how polarizing the term Gun Violence is our you can focus on what really is important…..the victims. Gun violence exists, that is undeniable. It is an epidemic in our country, also undeniable. It seems that the topic gets brought up and many jump to this idea that if we acknowledge gun violence we are somehow taking something away from responsible gun owners. Let me clear: This prayer is not about responsible gun owners. It is not about gun owners at all. It is about acknowledgement that people are harmed and terrorized every day with a weapon that can kill you in a second. Don’t politicize this and take the comfort we can offer through prayer away from those who really need the reassurance. I think you’ll be surprised to know how many people in your own community have fallen victim to gun violence.

At the moment the people of Orlando who were killed or injured an d their families are the focus. We always need to pray for people who are hurting. Now, as Episcopalians/Anglicans, we need to join together to hold everyone who is hurting up in prayer. And we need to stop arguing about what is more important to pray about. JOIN TOGETHER AND PRAY FOR PEACE. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Albany, NY June 14, 2016 at 12:15 pm So “gun violence” is the only kind of violence we care about? June 14, 2016 at 3:39 pm This litany was originally written for the Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath last December. Bishop Lane wrote it because we couldn’t find one to share with the churches in the Diocese of Maine. It seemed right to share it widely this week. Sadly, there are other litanies that need to be written to offer up prayers and calls to action for other types of violence. Here’s one of his columns about domestic violence and guns on the Bishops United Against Gun Violence site:http://bishopsagainstgunviolence.org/guns-and-domestic-violence-cant-be-separated/Hope this helps.Heidi ShottCanon for Communication and AdvocacyEpiscopal Diocese of Maine June 15, 2016 at 9:30 am The litany does not say one word about gun restrictions or gun control. Surely it is appropriate to pray for victims of gun violence. Saying we have to address all forms of violence at this time is like saying it is inappropriate to address breast cancer because there are other forms of cancer that kill and maim people. Associate Rector Columbus, GA Marc Mason says: June 18, 2016 at 3:54 pm Evil is the result of fear. Fear is the opposite of Love. God is Love. Guns are not for protection. Guns are for killing living creatures, God’s creatures. In the Bible we are commanded to “Fear not; Be not afraid; Have no fear.” —-Three hundred sixty-six times we are given that commandment! If we love our enemies and believe that love overpowers fear and defeats fear, there is no need for guns. If we follow Jesus, we believe Jesus word’s, and we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. If we believe in eternal life, we have no fear of death. By the way, I love you. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY June 14, 2016 at 3:00 pm What about a Liturgy for the babies killed in abortions? If the TEC doesn’t get a handle of progressive issues, I fear many members will be looking for more moderate or conservative churches. Wendy Owens says: June 14, 2016 at 4:55 pm Marc, Part of “The Prayers of the People” every Sunday, includes a paragraph of prayer for ourleaders. President, Governors, Mayors. What is wrong with a tone of affection? This is a Year of Mercy, after all. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA June 14, 2016 at 5:57 pm What a thoughtful and powerful litany to comfort those in sorrow at such a difficult time. Let us not bicker among each other about what topic is most important. Just for today let us unite in compassion and support for those who have lost and suffered so much. Wm.

Sited on a lake near Bracebridge, this modest four-season cabin was designed to nestle into the landscape and tread lightly on the land. Its sculptural form relies on wood both for structural strength and aesthetic warmth, in a cost-effective manner that capitalized on the strength of the local carpentry trades.Save this picture!© Shai GilCreativityThe design set out to make a small footprint home, one that married the warmth of a traditional log cabin with the clean lines and energy efficiency of something more modern. Designed to nestle into the existing topography of the site, the sculptural form of the cabin takes its cues from the rise and fall of the land, and the views through the trees. The sculptural reading of the form is heightened to a great degree by the cabin’s material continuity. Cedar was used throughout – on the interior walls and ceilings, on the roof and on the exterior walls, blending inside and out.Save this picture!ElevationsThe exterior cedar shakes and boards were left untreated. As they weather and bleach out over time, the cottage will blend further into its landscape.

Nestled into the woods and of a modest size and height, the cabin is only barely visible from the lake. The scale, proportions and sculptural form of the cabin take their cues from the existing rise and fall of the land, creating a profound connection to the site.Save this picture!© Shai GilSustainabilityA small environmental footprint was paramount to the clients. The first step in achieving this was siting the cabin to preserve the maximum number of living trees, in keeping with the forestry stewardship plan for the property. The cabin was then oriented to take advantage of the prevailing breezes and views to the lake.Save this picture!© Shai GilThe plan and the radiant heating system were designed so that the north half of the cabin could be closed off when not in use, to reduce energy consumption. Hot exhaust air from the high efficiency fireplace is ducted under the concrete floor slab to provide supplemental heatingSave this picture!© Shai GilThe cabin is designed for passive cooling and ventilation and orientated to take advantage of the prevailing breezes on the site. To minimize VOCs and resource use, interior and exterior wood surfaces were left untreated. This also helps to maximize indoor air quality. FSC lumber was used throughout the project.Save this picture!© Shai GilGood businessThe client was interested in achieving a warm, modern cabin on a small footprint. The challenge for the design team lay in making a compact plan that was at the same time expansive and spatially rich. The team worked closely with the builder during the design process to achieve efficiencies in the construction that would free up the section to achieve a sculptural section awash with light.Save this picture!© Shai GilLegacyThe project marries the tradition of rural Ontario wood architecture with sustainability, within a compact modern footprint. Without flourish or superfluous detail the cabin achieves an architectural richness that makes the cabin feel more expansive than it is physically, and deeply engaged in its site and landscape. The project has an unique character and authenticity that result from an unusually profound engagement of the client and the site in the design process.Project gallerySee allShow less”Every Building is a Social Critique” – Polshek Describes His Oeuvre in Latest BookMiscImpressive Line-Up Scheduled for UIA’s World Congress 2014Architecture News Share General Contractor: Stealth Cabin / Superkül incSave this projectSaveStealth Cabin / Superkül inc ArchDailylast_img read more

Anhydrous Regulations Delayed

first_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Dec 21, 2015 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Anhydrous Regulations Delayed Facebook Twitter Anhydrous Regulations Delayed SHARE The massive spending bill passed last week by Congress includes a delay in new anhydrous regulations. DTN reports that buried in the omnibus appropriations bill is a rider that forbids the Occupation Safety and Health Agency from requiring ag retailers to comply with Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals regulations. That gives agriculture retailers a reprieve on requirements that would make retail operations that sell anhydrous ammonia fertilizers to have the same level of safety rules and facility securities as chemical manufacturers.DTN reported earlier this year that while OSHA estimated the costs of facility safety renovations at $2,160 per site, the Ag Retailers Association estimated it would cost an average of $20,000 per site. Some retailers said costs would be more than $60,000 to comply and that they would stop selling anhydrous if the regulation exemption was removed.

Palestinian cameraman badly injured by Israeli gunfire unable to leave Gaza Strip to get artificial legs in Egypt

One month after asking Israeli defence minister Ehud Barak to investigate the circumstances in which Israeli soldiers fired on Palestinian cameraman Imad Ghanem on 5 July in the Gaza Strip, Reporters Without Borders today called for the results of the investigation to be published.Ghanem, who lost both legs as a result of the shooting, is meanwhile waiting to be allowed to leave the Gaza Strip and go to Egypt to be fitted with artificial legs.“The only reaction from the Israeli authorities to our initial request for information, the day after the shooting, was to say that the origin of the shots could not be identified in the footage available, and to claim that Ghanem was ‘working among the terrorists’,” the press freedom organisation said. “We have not yet received a response from the Israeli government to our request for a thorough investigation.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Ghanem meanwhile needs help. He is still waiting for a chance to travel to Egypt to be given prosthetic limbs. He also needs reeducation sessions in order to be able to live normally and go back to work. We call on the Israeli and Egyptian authorities who control the Rafah crossing to act quickly so that he can receive the appropriate treatment.”Ghanem, who was working for Al-Aqsa TV, was seriously injured by Israeli army fire while covering an incursion to the east of the Al-Barij refugee camp in the centre of the Gaza Strip in which at least 11 Palestinians were killed. Although not wearing any item of clothing that said “Press” or “TV,” he was carrying a TV camera and he was with a number of fellow journalists.Ghanem told Reporters Without Borders yesterday that the Israeli authorities have not tried to contact him for his version of what happened. He explained that he was not wearing any sign identifying him as a journalist because he did not have time to go to the TV station. “I went directly to the scene of the clashes, which were taking place near my home,” he said. “I did not want to risk arriving too late.”Initially wounded by the blast of a rocket fired from a helicopter, Ghanem was lying on the ground with his camera beside him when Israeli troops fired at him. Footage filmed by his colleagues that has been widely available on the Internet shows him being hit in the legs by two shots fired in quick succession. He was taken to Deir-al-Balah where both of his legs were amputated. He is now in the care of the Association of Arab Doctors, which wants him transferred to an Egyptian hospital.At least nine journalists have been wounded by Israeli military fire since the start of the year. For the most part, they were injured by shrapnel from stun or tear grenades or by rubber bullets.

Court bans all media from mentioning water pollution claims

first_imgNews March 22, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Court bans all media from mentioning water pollution claims News News to go further Under an order issued by a Caracas court yesterday, all print, broadcast and online media are now banned from referring to an alleged case of pollution of water supplies in the Caracas metropolitan region and in the neighbouring central states of Miranda, Aragua and Carabobo.The ban was issued at the request of three citizens with the aim of verifying whether the media “campaign” about the alleged pollution constitutes an offence requiring a criminal investigation. According to attorney-general Luisa Ortega, no serious evidence has been produced to support the claims.The statements of various regional officials nonetheless dispute this view. When a Globovisión TV crew tried to interview residents of a locality in Carabobo state about the claims on 15 March, they were prevented by members of the local council. Irrumpen de forma violenta en grabación de… par Globovision“This is just politically-motivated censorship,” Reporters Without Borders said. “When the authorities are unnerved by a story like this, they tend to brand it as an attempt to ‘destabilize’ public order. Is the public so incapable of forming its own opinion? Does a subject of general interest have to be suppressed because it could cause a ‘panic’? This court order is both dubious and inopportune and will just help to worsen the pre-election political and media climate.”___________21.03.12 – October election already fuelling threats and violence against mediaWith seven months to go to an October presidential election in which incumbent Hugo Chávez will face a challenge from opposition leader Henrique Capriles, the media are already experiencing a level of tension and confrontation that is well beyond what is normal in a pluralistic democratic debate. Expressions of hate, insults, rumour-mongering and sometimes violence against journalists “guilty” of belonging to a particular news media have reached alarming proportions. Not all the attacks are directly linked to the election, but the tension created by the rivalry between the main political camps is making it harder and harder for journalists to operate in the field.“The responsibility for this situation is clearly to be found at various levels,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It involves the government and the main political parties, which must urgently remind their members of the basic principles of political debate instead of systematically accusing the other camp. “It also involves the media, all of which – both state and privately-owned – should pledge to give both candidates a fair share of space or airtime and refrain from the kind of exaggeration and distortion that exposes their own employees to anger on the streets. Might it be possible to get the political leadership in both camps and the various media to agree on a code of conduct?“Finally, Reporters Without Borders calls for an end to hostilities in the blogosphere. We unreservedly condemn both the morbid and degrading speculation about President Chávez’s medical condition and the homophobic and anti-Semitic comments about Henrique Capriles. Such discourse, repeated on Twitter accounts that are often hacked, is unworthy of the important political decision the nation faces.”Various incidents during the first half of March have highlighted a climate of political polarization that could pose a danger for journalists. During a visit by Capriles to the Caracas neighbourhood of San José de Cotiza on 4 March, armed members of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) threatened a crew from the TV news station Globovisión consisting of reporter Sasha Ackerman, cameraman Frank Fernández and assistant Esteban Navas.Shots were fired and an opposition parliamentarian’s son sustained a bullet wound. The TV journalists were chased as they ran to take cover in a house, and had to surrender their recordings to their pursuers.Loathed by the government, which cannot forgive it for the sympathy it showed for an abortive coup attempt in April 2002, Globovisión is still facing a heavy administrative fine for its coverage of riots at El Rodeo prison, near Caracas, in June 2011. Members of the La Piedrita Collective, a radical pro-government group based in a working-class district of the capital, staged a demonstration outside Globovisión’s headquarters on 11 March, accusing it of “financing paramilitary groups” and being responsible for the murders of two La Piedrita activists the day before. Fortunately, the protest did not lead to any violence.Four days later, members of a local council attacked a TV crew working for the programme “El Radar de los Barrios” during an attempt to interview residents of a locality in Carabobo state about industrial pollution of water supplies. Opposition activists have also contributed to the climate of hostility. Capriles supporters attacked Catatumbo TV reporter Fidel Madroñero and his cameraman on 12 March in Zulia state in an attempt to prevent them from filming. Madroñero accused the opposition supporters of trying several time to destroy their equipment and of stealing personal effects from him.Similarly, Llafrancis Colina of “Zurda Konducta,” a programme broadcast on state-owned Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), was attacked and humiliated by Capriles supporters during a visit by the opposition candidate to Aragua state on 16 March. Her cameraman, Sergio Acuña, came to his rescue and managed to prevent the theft of equipment.The issue of violence is at the heart of the campaign, but journalists expose themselves to danger when they raise it. Sara Vargas García of the cable TV group Órbita was threatened with abduction by an unidentified caller while moderating a debate on the subject on 15 March in Anzoátegui state. The threat is being investigated by the Bolivarian Intelligence Service (Sebin) and the Forensic and Criminal Investigation Department (CICPC).Rayma Suprani, a cartoonist with the national daily El Universal, filed a formal complaint yesterday about the hate language that the host of “La Hojilla” (The Razorblade), a pro-government propaganda programme on VTV, used to attack her on the air on 14 March and the threats she has been receiving in a flood of Tweets and emails ever since.
