China Set To Ban Sale Of Dog Meat At Controversial Yulin Festival

March 19, 2017

The temporary ban is set to come into force on June 15 - one week before the festival begins - and will apply to street vendors, restaurants and market traders.

Fines of up to 100,000 yuan will be imposed for violations, and those caught selling dog meat could be arrested. The BBC also reports that “some vendors” told the outlet they hadn’t heard of a ban.

 

 

“The contacts in China of HSI and Duo Duo Project have spoken directly with a number of traders, all of whom confirm the ban, and that traders were told to attend a meeting at which the ban was explained.”

 

So, what would be the point of a ban if officials won’t confirm it?

 

Li said the likely goal is to prevent activists and journalists from taking gruesome-looking photos of canine carcasses.

“What the authorities are trying to accomplish is not a ban announcement, but the disappearance of slaughtered dog bodies,” he said. Photographic and video evidence taken at traders and stalls in Yulin show animals being carved up while still alive, with some killed in front of other dogs and cats. Last year, a petition carrying 11 million signatures was handed to the Yulin government calling for an end to the festival, while an online petition in 2015 attracted more than 4.6m names.

 

Late Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher and comedian Ricky Gervais are among the celebrities to back the outcry.

Wikileaks Says It

Has Exposed The CIA's Hacking Operations

March 09, 2017

WikiLeaks, known for its high-profile releases of confidential government information, has published a trove of documents it says exposes the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency's hacking operations.

 

In a statement, the CIA declined to comment on the authenticity of the documents, which they described as "purported."

 

Security experts, however, are concerned, with one expert saying that it is a possible sign that the spy agency has "lost control" over its cyber arsenal.

 

WikiLeaks says the documents have details about the size and scope of the CIA's hacking capabilities. The agency's hacking division had more than 5,000 users and produced more than a thousand trojans, viruses and "weaponized" malware, WikiLeaks said in a statement on its website.

 

The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation into classified information. The C.I.A. has refused to explicitly confirm the authenticity of the documents, but it all but said they were genuine Wednesday when it took the unusual step of putting out a statement to defend its work and chastise WikiLeaks.

 

The leak was perhaps most awkward for the White House, which found itself criticizing WikiLeaks less than six months after the group published embarrassing emails from John D. Podesta, the campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton, prompting President Trump to declare at the time, “I love WikiLeaks.” Sean Spicer, the White House spokesman, said the release of documents “should be something that everybody is outraged about in this country.”

 

A number of cybersecurity experts and hackers expressed skepticism at the level of technical wizardry that WikiLeaks claimed to uncover, and pointed out that much of what was described in the documents was aimed at older devices that have known security flaws. One document, for instance, discussed ways to quickly copy 3.5-inch floppy disks, a storage device so out of date that few people younger than 35 have probably used one.

 

WikiLeaks is, for now, withholding details on the specific hacks used "until a consensus emerges" on the nature of the CIA's program and how the methods should be "analyzed, disarmed and published." But WikiLeaks — a nonprofit that routinely publishes confidential documents, frequently from government sources — claims that the data and documents it obtained reveal a broad program to bypass security measures on everyday products.

 

The WikiLeaks release included 7,818 web pages with 943 attachments. Many were partly redacted by the group, which said it wanted to to avoid disclosing the code for the tools.

Can Immigrants Be Deported Without

A Court Hearing?

March 09, 2017

The visa waiver program allows citizens of certain countries to enter the United States for tourism or business and stay for as long as 90 days. But remaining beyond that time limit can carry serious consequences.

 

"You don't get the right to a hearing," said Bryan Cox, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. That means if you overstay and are apprehended, there's no guarantee you'll get to make your case in court before authorities deport you. But Cox said you could still end up in front of a judge if you're seeking asylum or some other sort of protected status.

 

In recent years, immigration authorities have increasingly fast-tracked their efforts to kick certain people out of the United States without court hearings in a process known as "expedited removal."

Women's March Organizers Announce Date For General Strike

February 16, 2017

The group did not immediately return a request for additional information on the strike, but the social media post said more details would be forthcoming. "In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer 'A Day Without A Woman,'" the organizers said in an Instagram post. The Women's March on Washington, which took place the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration, drew the participation of more than a million people in cities across the United States. Since the , the organizers have rolled out a series of "10 actions for the First 100 Days" to channel that grassroots support into further actions to effect social change.

 

The date is set on March 8, which happens to land on International Women's Day.

New York Mosque Attack Suspect Will not Face Terror Charges

February 16, 2017

A man accused of plotting to attack New York mosque will escape terrorism charges - allegedly because federal laws focus entirely on foreign extremists according to The Independent. Robert Doggart was arrested in April 2015 after authorities discovered that he had been trying to recruit people to burn down the mosque in "Islamberg," a self-named, predominantly Muslim community near Hancock, according to court records.

 

Lawyers representing the Islamberg community, claim a loophole in federal law allows defendants such as Doggart to escape terrorism charges. "Frankly, there is nothing on terrorism unless it is connected to a foreign element. You will not see the KKK charged with domestic terror even though that's what they do. "

 

According to the Patriot Act, which was passed in October 2001 in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, prosecutors can only charge a defendant with domestic terrorism if he or she had the intension to "intimidate" or "coerce" a civilian population, Or influence the "policy of a government" to affect the conduct of government by "mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping."

Nationwide Ban on Valentines Day In Pakistan

 

February 13, 2017

The order prohibits the display of adverts on electronic and print media that reference Valentine's Day, bans the sale of associated merchandise and states that the day cannot be celebrated in "any public space or government building." The court's order came after a petition was submitted by a citizen called Abdul Waheed -- who claimed that ongoing promotions of Valentine's Day were "against the teachings of Islam and should be banned immediately."

 

In Pakistan, Valentine's Day is seen by some as amoral and an appropriation of Western culture. Religious groups like the Islamic political party jamat e Islami have often protested against marking Valentine's Day in the country and hold rallies annually against the celebration on February 14.
