This Christmas there were more stars on the trees than ever before with over 3,000 being named. Supporters chose to dedicate stars for many different reasons including in memory of someone special, to say thank you to a member of staff who supported them at the hospital, or just to celebrate themselves or the people in their lives. Now in its 16th year, Celebrate a Life sees two carol services take place in December where supporters can come to the hospital and sing carols alongside a choir, watch the Christmas tree light switch on and find their special star on the tree. Money raised from Celebrate a Life helps to fund state-of-the-art equipment, research, and a range of other initiatives at The Royal Marsden.  The campaign has grown substantially over the years and has more than doubled the amount it has raised since 2012.Antonia Dalmahoy, Managing Director of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, said:“It was humbling to see the thousands of stars across the Christmas trees each shining brightly for a life that has been touched by cancer. Celebrate a Life is such a special occasion for patients, their loved ones, our supporters and staff, and every star named is helping us make a vital difference.  I’m extremely proud of this fantastic fundraising total which means we can continue to support The Royal Marsden’s exceptional work.” BookTrust Christmas Appeal raised £47,000 over target amountDonations to BookTrust’s Christmas fundraising appeal raised a record £240,000: £47,000 over the target amount.The campaign launched on 4 November, and Giving Tuesday and the day after saw BookTrust receive a record 1,653 donations in just those two days.The festive appeal forms part of the charity’s Letterbox project, which sends book parcels out to children who are vulnerable or in care.

Each parcel contains one book, a letter from award winning author and current Waterstone’s Children’s Laureate Cressida Cowell, a poster and bookmark created by Neal Layton, and a postcard.Diana Gerald, BookTrust CEO, said:“We’re absolutely thrilled by the support from the public and thanks to so many generous donations, we have been able to send a festive gift of a book to each of the 12,250 children in our 2019 Letterbox programme.

President Lukashenko orders independent news media to change their names

The decree, which does not apply to the state media, gives offending newspapers three months to comply by registering under a new name.”This is a bit too obvious,” the press freedom organization said. “The sole aim of this presidential decree is to sabotage the few remaining independent news media in Belarus. Day after day, the government continues to find new ways to curb press freedom and harass news media that are not subservient to President Lukashenko.”Reporters Without Borders added: “In clearly choosing to discriminate against the privately-owned media, Lukashenko seems to have abandoned any concern for legal subtleties and has taken an undemocratic decision with the sole aim of crushing press diversity. Once again he unfortunately justifies his place of honour in the Reporters Without Borders list of press freedom predators.”The newspapers that will have to change their names include Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta, Belorussky Rynok, Belorusskaya Gazeta and Natsionalnaya Ekomicheskaya Gazeta. Not only will they have to spend money to re-register, they will also have to deal with the technical problems of changing their logo and layout, and their banking details. And they could also lose readers who fail to recognize their usual newspaper by its new name.

Journalists prosecuted and printing of two newspapers held up

first_imgNews Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections News Reporters Without Borders expressed concern today at the 17 December court appearance in Algiers of two journalists, from the daily papers Liberté and Le Matin, after complaints by the defence ministry. Liberté did not appear next day because of what the state-owned Algiers Printing Company (SIA) called “technical problems.”The organisation said it feared the defence ministry complaints against journalists, the latest of many, would lead to further media self-censorship. It also called on SIA to explain the problems it had printing some newspapers on time.Liberté’s cartoonist, Ali Dilem, appeared in court after a defence ministry objection to a cartoon by him published on 16 January this year about the 1992 assassination of President Mohamed Boudiaf. The prosecutor asked for Dilem to be fined 40,000 dinars (about 500 euros) and the paper 1.4 million dinars (17,000 euros). Judgement was reserved until 31 December. The last cartoonist prosecuted in Algeria was Chawki Amari, who was given a prison sentence in 1996.The court also heard the managing editor of Le Matin, Mohamed Benchicou, in connection with six articles by Sid Ahmed Semiane (known as SAS) that the defence ministry considered libellous. The prosecution called for the paper to be given six fines of 1.4 million dinars (17,000 euros). Judgement was again reserved until 31 December.Printing of Liberté was called off by the paper at dawn on 18 December because it had been delayed too long by the printers, SIA. Editor Salim Tamani told Reporters Without Borders that for the past month, SIA had been printing the paper later and later, which was running up huge costs. “Since the paper owes the firm no money, this behaviour is clearly political,” he said.Another daily, L’Actualité, has been having similar problems. Editor Amine Esseghir told Reporters Without Borders that SIA had failed to print the paper on time on four occasions in the past two weeks, even though SIA was paid in cash. The firm’s new state-of-the-art rotary press always breaking down when certain papers came to be printed, he said.

It was argued that a few people amongst the crowd began to misbehave with the police, that the police tried to pacify them but all efforts went in vain, with the accused instigating the crowd, and threatening to kill the police persons on duty. There was allegedly stone pelting and thrashing with branches of the trees with the intention to kill the police officials. The police officers and other staff sustained minor injuries. Even the vehicles of the general public were ransacked.
