Journalists attacked during far-right protests in Spain

first_img Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU SpainEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Covid19Environment Journalists were aggressed, harassed and insulted as flag-waving Vox supporters drove through several Spanish cities in cars and on motorcycles on 23 May in protest against the way Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s centre-left government has been handling the coronavirus crisis.

He immediately filed a complaint with the police.Journalists covering the protest in Ceuta – a Spanish enclave on the North African coast whose city hall is controlled by the right-wing People’s Party (PP) supported by Vox – said they were subjected to racist and Islamophobic insults, some of which can be heard in the footage that a TVE cameraman posted on Twitter.“It’s an act of the utmost cynicism typical of extremist groups to say they condemn attacks against the press and blame them on ‘the enemy,’ when it is the hatred of the media that Vox constantly stokes which is behind this violence,” said Alfonso Armada, the Director of RSF Spain. “Vox does not need to publicly assume its responsibility. We do it for them.”Vox denied any link with these attacks, which Vox spokesman Jorge Buxadé implied were the work of “far-left infiltrators”. This did not prevent Vox’s spokesman in Ceuta, Carlos Verdejo, from justifying the attacks by claiming that one of the targeted reporters was affiliated to Podemos.RSF already called on Vox to end its press freedom violations last year. Even before last November’s elections, Vox imposed a boycott on certain media outlets, a boycott that it continues to observe.“Some media outlets are banned from participating in Vox events,” photographer Antonio Sempere told RSF Spain. “We journalists are directly denounced by regional parliamentarians who are on the public payroll. This is very serious.”Spain is ranked 29th out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Norway: NATO Begins New Anti-Submarine Warfare Exercise

first_imgBetween 29 May and 06 June 2012, NATO will conduct a new Anti-Submarine Warfare exercise. DYNAMIC MONGOOSE 12, as the exercise is called, will take place off the coast of Norway and involve four submarines, 11 aircrafts and four surface ships provided by seven NATO nations.

Maritime Patrol Aircrafts (Canadian, French, German and Norwegian) and Anti-Submarine Helicopters (Polish, French and British) will operate from air bases in Sola, Norway and Nordholz, Germany.

Social sciences most employable

first_imgA recent study has found that people who study a social science at university are the most employable after they graduate. The study showed that 84 percent of social science graduates are in employment three and a half years after their degrees. This is in comparison with 79 percent of graduates who had taken a humanities degree and 78 percent of graduates who had studied a science, engineering or mathematics based subject. The study was undertaken by the Campaign for Social Sciences, an initiative that began in 2011 to work on raising the profile of social sciences. James Wilsdon, the Chair of the Campaign said, “the Campaign was set up a couple of years ago to try and raise the visibility of social sciences in policy debates, in the media and in broader public debate.”He commented on the results of the study saying, “It should help to remind decision makers of the critical importance of those subjects and of the value that they are bringing to the workplace.”Oxford students were similarly enthused by the news. An E&M finalist said “As a finalist job hunter, it’s heartening to hear that social science students are seen as more employable. When facing such a grim jobs market, it’s good to know that the skills I have developed whilst doing my degree can translate into tangible results.” Paul Moroz, who studies PPE, said “It’s great to know that all those 9am lectures will be worth it.”Other students however were not intimidated by the success of social science graduates. A third year Classicist commented, “As a classicist, I think that my degree, or any arts degree, fosters skills of analysis and communication just as much as a social science degree does. I do not think that I’m disadvantaged by studying for an arts degree, nor would I have picked a social science degree in preference because it may be more employable.”This sentiment was shared by Shearer West, the Head of the Humanities Division at Oxford who claimed students should not be put off studying humanities or scientific subjects because they might be less employable. She said “Generally, I feel that the collective evidence demonstrates that pupils at school should feel confident in choosing an academic subject that reflects their interests and passions and not feel deterred by anxieties about their future career prospects.”The study also found that not only do more social scientists find employment after they graduate, but there are also more social science graduates in jobs like senior officials or managers. 7.6 percent of people who have social science degrees are in jobs like these compared to only 3.6 percent of people who did mathematics or science based degrees.A Balliol Chemist however was unconvinced by the findings; he said “I find it hard to believe. The statistical maths and computer programming, and complex problem solving learned during a science degree can be applied almost anywhere. Scientists have the widest range of transferable skills and I think employers know that.”last_img read more
