VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Executive Council February 2013, Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Albany, NY Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Collierville, TN Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Director of Music Morristown, NJ [Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal comenzó aquí su reunión de tres días con el examen de un proceso para formular una propuesta presupuestaria para el trienio 2016-2018.El Rdo. Canónigo Charles LaFond, miembro del Consejo procedente de [la diócesis de] Nuevo Hampshire, dirigió a sus colegas en un ejercicio de 75 minutos de duración que incluía meditación silenciosa, oración y conversaciones de mesa de 12 minutos. Los miembros del Consejo cambiaron de mesa para cada una de estas sesiones de conversación como un modo de estimular una amplia discusión al tiempo que se les pedía que tuvieran en cuenta dos preguntas: “¿Hacía dónde Dios parece conducir a nuestra Iglesia y cuáles son nuestras esperanzas y sueños para el futuro [y] qué acciones y ministerios nos ayudarían a realizar esas esperanzas y esos sueños?”  y “¿Cuál es el papel idóneo de la estructura denominacional (a diferencia de las estructuras diocesanas o locales) para potenciar estos ministerios y estas acciones?”.El ejercicio surge de un subcomité creado durante la última reunión del Consejo por su Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Finanzas para la Misión (FFM, sigla en inglés) para revisar el proceso trienal que los miembros han utilizado para formular una propuesta presupuestaria trienal.Los miembros del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas (PB&F), que recibe la propuesta presupuestaria del Consejo Ejecutivo, y la Comisión Permanente sobre la Estructura de la Iglesia se encuentran entre los integrantes del subcomité, dijo la Rda. Susan Snook, miembro del Consejo proveniente de la [diócesis de] Arizona que preside el subcomité.Los miembros del Consejo Ejecutivo 2009-2012 no estaban enteramente complacidos con el proceso presupuestario durante ese trienio. En el curso de su última reunión antes de la Convención General de 2012, enviaron un memorando de preocupaciones específicas al PB&F  acerca de su documento presupuestario 2012-2015. En parte, decían que una decisión de programar la primera reunión del PB&F sobre el presupuesto al día siguiente de concluir la reunión del consejo les exigía convenir en “un documento final antes de que la oficina del tesorero tuviera el tiempo necesario para redactar el documento a fin de someterlo a una revisión final del Consejo Ejecutivo”.Mark Hollingsworth, obispo de la Diócesis de Ohio y presidente del FFM, le dijo al Consejo en octubre que su comité había acordado que el proceso debe cambiarse, aunque un proceso especial sobre la estructura de la Iglesia abordaría sin duda los asuntos presupuestarios. Ese equipo de trabajo se reunió por primera vez a principios de este mes y debe reportarle a la Iglesia en noviembre de 2014 y traer sus recomendaciones a la reunión de la Convención General en Salt Lake City en 2015.Sin embargo, el proceso del Consejo Ejecutivo de formular una propuesta presupuestaria 2016-2019, tiene lugar al mismo tiempo que la tarea de ese grupo por la regla conjunta II.10c.ii de la Convención General estipula que el Consejo debe presentar su propuesta presupuestaria al PB&F no menos de cuatro meses antes del comienzo de la Convención General.Concibiendo el futuroSnook invitó a los miembros del Consejo el 25 de febrero a comenzar a contemplar la manera de cambiar el proceso, en primer lugar “a soñar y a concebir el futuro de la Iglesia y a orar por él —por nuestra visión para la Iglesia”.El papel del Consejo en el proceso presupuestario de la Convención General conlleva proponer una visión y una misión para cada trienio, dijo.“El primer paso es llegar a entender lo que nosotros, como Consejo Ejecutivo, creemos que es la visión y misión de la Iglesia” en el trienio 2016-2019, agregó. El ejercicio tenía el propósito no sólo de ver “lo que creemos que de be hacerse, sino discernir lo que Dios necesita que se haga”.Snook vinculó ese ejercicio al real procesamiento de cifras en la formulación del presupuesto, al decir: “no importa lo que digas que es tu visión, lo que pones en el papel como la manera en que te propones gastar el dinero expresa lo que es realmente tu visión”.“No llegaremos hoy a ninguna conclusión concreta respecto a lo que es la visión y misión de la Iglesia”, agregó. “éste es el comienzo de un proceso de años para hacer que nazca una visión”.LaFond llamó al ejercicio “un manera cuaresmal” de abordar esas cuestiones con indagación abierta y cuestionamiento humilde”, valiéndose del silencio tanto como de la reflexión conversacional. El silencio, afirmó, es “sentarse ahí a recibir [instrucciones] del Espíritu Santo”. El silencio, añadió, es con frecuencia el espacio utilizado para formular una respuesta brillante a una pregunta.“Algunos de ustedes encontrarán este ejercicio muy ameno y meditativo; otros lo aborrecerán y se opondrán a él, deseando más bien producir algo tangible o hacer una declaración o publicar un resultado”, afirmó LaFond.El subcomité del FFM ha propuesto un proceso presupuestario trienal que se discutirá más tarde en esta reunión, continuó Snook, quien sugirió que el ejercicio del 25 de febrero resultaría útil independientemente de la configuración del proceso que el Consejo finalmente elija.Después del ejercicio, los miembros del Consejo, el personal y los visitantes participaron en la celebración de la EucaristíaLa reunión del 25 al 27 de febrero está teniendo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo.También en la agenda del Consejo:El consejo dedicó la tarde del 25 de febrero a reuniones por comités y también comenzará con reuniones de comités el 26. Está programada una reunión plenaria para la media tarde del 26 de febrero, durante la cual los miembros se espera que oigan un informe sobre la 15ª. reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, una actualización sobre la recuperación de la Diócesis de Haití luego del terremoto y una presentación sobre la utilización futura del Centro Denominacional  de la Iglesia Episcopal en el 815 de la Segunda Avenida en Nueva York. La Convención General aprobó la Resolución D016 durante su reunión de julio pasado, en la que decía que “es la voluntad de esta Convención mudar las oficinas centrales de la Iglesia” de ese edificio. El 27 de febrero, el Consejo se reunirá en sesión plenaria para oír informes de comités y considerar resoluciones.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General según el Canon I.4 (1)(a). El consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros —20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son electos por la Convención General y 18 (un clérigo y un laico) por cada una de los nueve sínodos provinciales, por períodos de seis años— además del/de la Obispo/a Primado/a y el/la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados.– La Rda.

Queen Elizabeth speaks on Christian unity and Primates Meeting

Archbishop of York John Sentamu said that this differed from other churches’ assemblies where the members are elected for each meeting and sometimes meet only once per year; or, in some cases, once every three years.“There is time for us to grow together as a body of Christians, sharing fellowship and worship with each other and bearing each other’s burdens as we engage in the common task and, most importantly, sharing the joy of the Gospel of Christ.”The Synod was gathering “at a moment of great uncertainty and conflict in our world,” Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said. “We shall, in the midst of all our other business, want to take time to pray earnestly for the leaders of the nations as they grapple with problems so intractable that solutions are likely to be neither simple nor quick.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby greets Queen Elizabeth at the Eucharist for the inauguration of the 10th term of General Synod in the Church of England. Photo: Picture Partnership/Westminster Abbey“As we seek to take counsel together here to discern the mind of Christ for the Church of England, and for those whom we serve in this land, we shall draw strength from knowing that Your Majesty’s prayers will be with us,” he said as he addressed the Queen.”Earlier, the Archbishop of Canterbury presided over a pre-Synod Eucharist at Westminster Abbey attended by the Queen and civil and religious dignitaries. The sermon was given by Father Raniero Cantalamessa, the Preacher to the Papal Household.He raised the forthcoming 500th anniversary of the Reformation – the great divide between the Western churches. “It is vital for the whole Church that this opportunity is not wasted by people remaining prisoners of the past, trying to establish each other’s rights and wrongs,” he said. “Rather, let us take a qualitative leap forward, like what happens when the sluice gates of a river or a canal enable ships to continue to navigate at a higher water level.“The situation has dramatically changed since [Reformation times]. We need to start again with the person of Jesus, humbly helping our contemporaries to experience a personal encounter with Him. ‘All things were created through him and for him’; Christ is the light of the world, the one who gives meaning and hope to every human life – and the majority of people around us live and die as if He had never existed! How can we be unconcerned, and each remain ‘in the comfort of our own well panelled houses’?“We should never allow a moral issue like that of sexuality divide us more than faith in Jesus unites us.“We need to go back to the time of the Apostles: they faced a pre-Christian world, and we are facing a largely post-Christian world. When Paul wants to summarise the essence of the Christian message in one sentence, he does not say, ‘I proclaim this or that doctrine to you.’ He says, ‘We preach Christ crucified’ (1 Cor 1:23), and again ‘We preach . . . Jesus Christ as Lord’ (2 Cor 4:5).”He continued: “This does not mean ignoring the great theological and spiritual enrichment that came from the Reformation or desiring to go back to the time before it. It means instead allowing all of Christianity to benefit from its achievements, once they are freed from certain distortions due to the heated atmosphere of the time and of later controversies.“Justification by faith, for example, ought to be preached by the whole Church – and with more vigour than ever. Not in opposition to good works – the issue is already settled – but rather in opposition to the claim of people today that they can save themselves thanks to their science, technology or their man-made spirituality, without the need for a redeemer coming from outside humanity. Self-justification!“I am convinced that if they were alive today this is the way Martin Luther and Thomas Cranmer would preach justification through faith!”Addressing the issue of Christian unity, Father Cantalamessa said that it was “not a simple matter.”“One has to start with the big Churches, those that are well structured, putting together that which unites them, which is vastly more important than what divides them,” he said. “Nothing is more important than to fulfil Christ’s heart desire for unity expressed in today’s gospel.“In many parts of the world people are killed and churches burned not because they are Catholic, or Anglican, or Pentecostals, but because they are Christians. In their eyes we are already one! Let us be one also in our eyes and in the eyes of God.“The Anglican Church has a special role in all of this. It has often defined itself as a ‘via media’ (a Middle Way) between Roman Catholicism and Reformed Christianity. From being a ‘via media’ in a static sense, it must now become more and more a via media in a dynamic sense, exercising an active function as a bridge between the Churches.“The presence among you of a priest of the Catholic Church, in circumstances of such special significance, is a sign that something of the kind is already happening.”Over the next two days, members of the Synod will debate the C of E’s program of reform and renewal, the refugee crisis, and the future of its church buildings.

Photo: Picture Partnership/Westminster Abbey“The presence among us today of the Preacher to the Papal Household would not have been possible but for the notable advances since 1970 in co-operation across the great Christian traditions,” the Queen said in her speech to the Synod. “There are many other examples. The covenant between the Church of England and the Methodist Church; the recent visit of the Ecumenical Patriarch; the participation in this Synod of observers from so many Christian traditions; the newly created ecumenical community of St. Anselm at Lambeth. Each of these serves as a reminder both of the progress already made and of the journey that still lies ahead in the pursuit of Christian unity,” she said.The Queen recognized the divisive nature of the some of the Synod’s business, saying that the “last Synod will be particularly remembered for the way in which, after prolonged reflection and conversation, even in the midst of deep disagreements, it was able to approve the legislation to enable women to be consecrated as bishops.“This new Synod too will have to grapple with the difficult issues confronting our Church and our world. On some of these there will be many different views. And I am sure that members of the Synod will pray earnestly that the gathering in January of the Primates of the Anglican Communion will be a time when, together, they may know what is God’s will.”Quoting St. Paul, the Queen said that all Christians “as ambassadors for Christ, are entrusted with the ministry of reconciliation. Spreading God’s word and the onerous but rewarding task of peace-making and conflict resolution are important parts of that ministry.“So too is the Church of England’s particular vocation to work in partnership with those of other faiths and none, to serve the common good in this land. . .“Your Graces, each new Synod inherits from its predecessor the same weighty responsibilities. Collectively, you must continue to draw deeply on your faith, judgement, and life experiences, as well as that precious Anglican tradition of unity in fellowship, to discern the future path of the Church of England.

Celebrating Thanksgiving we all become like Saints that day. It is the date we thank God for our lives and His Blessings upon them and our Nation. seeing our Lord in each person. A Saint is where the Lord is on earth. I remember one year living homeless in Washington D.C. in a park across from the White House. It was in winter and I was famished. I walked by a Church whose sign read “Feast Day of a Saint”. Immediately I entered and waited. The minister prayed, read from the Gospel , spoke his homliy . Suddenly the priest lifted the chalice and communion wafer toward Heaven and began to sing; a song celebrating not only that my sins are forgiven; but that Jesus seeks to dwell, live within me. He wants to give us a life in a world without end of love even onto Heaven. I felt a fullness in my heart, soul , and body . There was no food served that day. . I went back to my spot and I made sure I took communion every day, That became thanksgiving for me. but when the real holiday came I still ate like a ravenous American. Thanks for letting me share.

But if actions indeed speak louder than words, it will take a show of unity such as not seen heretofore in England or in the US. It will take a constant display of the fellowship we yearn for…done daily and in sincerity. I suggest a modification of each others Lectionaries to start. Perhaps a prayer for those included on each others calendar of saints may send a message, however superficial, that we are taking steps towards a true oneness in Christ.

The practice and belief of these people varies as much between countries as it does within the countries where it exists. It is racked with modernism and liberal philosophy, and now its churches are empty and its voice totally ignored. Anglicanism has discarded everything and every tradition that may have once linked it to the ancient Church and as Cardinal Pell rightly observed, it’s a warning of what will happen to Catholicism if it too starts down the disastrous liberal modernist road proposed by the disasterous Argentine Bergoglio.

Philly activists demand: Take ‘Racist Rizzo’ statue down

first_imgAround 40 people descended on the Frank Rizzo statue in Philadelphia on Oct. 23 on what would have been Rizzo’s 96th birthday. The crowd — organized by the Philly Coalition for R.E.A.L. Justice (REAL = Racial, Economic And Legal) — threw a mock party for the former police commissioner and mayor. The bash was highlighted by activists placing a shirt on the statue that read, “Happy birthday, Frank ‘the racist’ Rizzo.”Rizzo was Philadelphia police commissioner from 1968 to 1971 and mayor from 1972 to 1980. In both roles, Rizzo targeted Black activists, including the Black Panther Party and MOVE, with harassment, beatings and arrests. A Pulitzer-Prize-winning expose by the Philadelphia Inquirer exposed that rampant police brutality was covered up under the Rizzo administrations.His statue has been the subject of intense criticism. Many take objection to this homage to a man whose bias against the African, Latinx and LGBTQ communities is well documented. A petition to remove the statue has been created by the Philly Coalition for R.E.A.L.

first_imgEl pasado viernes 31 de marzo, la Junta de Control Fiscal – la agencia de cobro – que bajo la ley PROMESA (Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act of 2016 ) impuso el Congreso estadounidense al pueblo boricua para cobrar la ilegítima deuda producto de la venta de bonos municipales, se reunió por sexta vez desde su inicio. Ésta vez en PR, para pasivamente “recibir ponencias y presentaciones sobre el tema de desarrollo económico de parte de diversos representantes de entidades de gobierno, privadas y del tercer sector”, según lee su página juntasupervision.pr.gov.Como parte de su solución al pago de la deuda, la JCF impone un recorte de $450 millones a la Universidad de Puerto Rico, conllevando además el cierre – o “consolidaciones” de algunos de los 11 recintos de la universidad.  Este gigantesco recorte supone un grave golpe a la educación superior y además hará perder las acreditaciones a la institución.Fuera del edificio donde se reunía la junta, sin embargo, se encontraban cientos de estudiantes y organizaciones solidarias que activamente exponían la criminalidad de dicha junta y exigían el cumplimiento de sus demandas. Habían marchado temprano en la mañana desde el conocido Parque Muñoz Rivera hacia el Centro de Convenciones donde estaba la Junta, caminando incluso por dentro de la fuente a la entrada del Centro, que estaba fuertemente resguardado por centenares de policías y bomberos.En su mayoría, las/os manifestantes eran estudiantes de la UPR, y exponían lo que en estos momentos es la verdadera misión de la JCF – destruir a PR como país. La UPR, siendo la única institución pública de enseñanza superior, encarna el futuro mismo del archipiélago. Allí se preparan las y los futuros maestros y científicos, las y los profesionales que pueden llevar al desarrollo del país para el provecho de su pueblo.De hecho, la UPR está catalogada como una de las más prestigiosas del Caribe, y de ahí se han nutrido importantes entidades de los Estados Unidos, incluyendo educativas e incluso la NASA, entre muchas otras. La UPR, al ser subsidiada por el gobierno, le brinda más posibilidad de obtener una carrera a las/os estudiantes sin recursos.Huelga estudiantilEse último día de marzo era ya el cuarto día de la huelga decretada por las/os estudiantes el 21 de marzo. En asamblea general, las/os estudiantes del Recinto de Río Piedras habían aprobado con 1.312 votos a favor y 253 en contra, un paro de las labores académicas desde el 28 de marzo hasta el 5 de abril.El día 5, se reunirán en Asamblea Nacional las/os estudiantes de los 11 recintos de la UPR más las/os del Conservatorio de Música de Puerto Rico y de la Escuela de Artes Plásticas de Puerto Rico. Después, el 6 de abril, el Recinto de Río Piedras estará en huelga indefinida. Esta decisión de huelga indefinida se hizo el 21 de marzo y no está sujeta a los resultados de la Asamblea Nacional del 5 de abril.Los reclamos de las/os estudiantes en huelga son primeramente que se audite la deuda. Esta no ha sido auditada e incluso el gobernador actual, Ricardo Roselló del Partido Nuevo Progresista que aboga por la estadidad y quien por tanto tiene una relación de subordinación a la Junta, eliminó la junta independiente para la auditoría. Los otros reclamos son que no haya recortes en el presupuesto de la UPR ni aumento de matrícula, y que se haga una reforma universitaria.Contrataciones obscenas de la JCFLa JCF – léase el imperio estadounidense – ha decidido destruir a su colonia, Puerto Rico y convertirla en su patio para la diversión y sitio de inversiones de sus multimillonarios, que reciben en PR una enorme exención contributiva. Más que antes. Al mismo tiempo que decreta hondos recortes educativos para estudiantes boricuas, además de otras medidas de austeridad como el alza de impuestos a granel, cierre de 300 escuelas públicas, y una larga lista de recortes y “ajustes” que empobrecerán aún más a la población, la JCF derrocha impune y obscenamente el dinero del pueblo puertorriqueño en contratos millonarios.Con lágrimas de cocodrilo, José Carrión, presidente de la JCF dijo: “Debido a la crisis en que está el país, “cada cheque que firmo me da vergüenza”, afirmó en un mensaje ante el capítulo de Puerto Rico de la Asociación de Contratistas Generales de Estados Unidos”. (elnuevodia.com, 30 de marzo) Esta aseveración fue en respuesta a las masivas críticas luego que la junta nombrara a Natalie Jaresko como su directora ejecutiva. La Jaresko es nada menos que una mujer ucraniana que nació en Chicago y  que el Departamento de Estado de EUA envió a Ucrania donde fungió como Ministra de Finanzas, ejerciendo un papel predominante en el esfuerzo de EUA para controlar el gobierno de Ucrania, según un artículo de Claridad, ‘Jaresko: ¿Por qué llegó al Caribe?’ del 29 de marzo.Jaresko está íntimamente asociada además con la infame USAID, y según el mismo artículo “Sobre el manejo que Jaresko (junto a su entonces marido) hizo del fondo (de la USAID) hubo imputaciones de corrupción porque se auto asignó sumas millonarias a modo de “bonos”, muy superiores a su salario básico”.Mientras la JCF reduce las pensiones de boricuas, les aumenta los impuestos y toda clase de contribuciones, les recorta beneficios y acceso a servicios de salud, le regala a Jaresko un sueldo de nada menos que $650.000 al año, además de viajes a Kiev, chófer, vivienda, etc. ¡Todo pagado por el empobrecido pueblo de PR!A esta contratación se suma la de una ‘oficial de ética’ de la JCF. “Junto al salario que estará ganando la nueva Directora Ejecutiva de la Junta de Control Fiscal (Jaresko), se sumará también la compensación de $750 la hora por las labores de la oficial de ética, Andrea Bonime Blanc”. (noticel, 1 de abril)El pueblo tiene la última palabraMientras el imperio con su criminal Junta intentan decidir el futuro de Puerto Rico, la juventud estudiantil, unida a otros sectores, sindicales, ambientalistas, sociales,  y otros, incluyendo a las y los boricuas en exilio – la llamada diáspora – se aprestan a arreciar la lucha. Es un tiempo crucial para Boriké, y sus hijas e hijos lo sienten en sus venas.  Y se están preparando. Desde Estados Unidos, unamos nuestras voces y acciones en repudio a la Junta dictatorial y en defensa y solidaridad del pueblo boricua.¡Viva Puerto Rico Libre!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Uganda creates unit to spy on social networks

first_img Ugandan president threatens to “bankrupt” leading daily UgandaAfrica Online freedomsProtecting sources Judicial harassmentFreedom of expressionCitizen-journalistsInternet June 30, 2017 Uganda creates unit to spy on social networks Follow the news on Uganda News to go further UgandaAfrica Online freedomsProtecting sources Judicial harassmentFreedom of expressionCitizen-journalistsInternet RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is concerned about the Ugandan government’s creation of a team of experts to closely monitor social networks, fearing that it will be used to restrict freedom of expression and silence critics. In a country where social networks are nowadays widely used to circulate news and views, do the authorities want to monitor better in order to punish better? The Uganda Media Centre, the media regulatory authority appointed by the president, announced on 27 June that a team of state security officers and IT experts has been set up to scan profiles on Facebook and other social networks in order to find posts critical of the government and the nation. Defending the special unit’s creation to an audience of citizen-journalists at a news conference, Uganda Media Centre executive director Ofwono Opondo said: “We have realised that social media users are bitter and depressed people who are always complaining on their pages about the government and everything in the country, but they rarely get responses from the targeted ministries.” “Increasing surveillance in order to better track down any criticism of the government is in itself a violation of freedom of information, said Elodie Vialle, the head of RSF’s Journalism and Technology Bureau. This measure is all the more worrying in a country that is in the habit of silencing critical journalists.” Social networks – new hunting ground for journalists RSF is all the more concerned about the possible repercussions of this unit’s creation on the work of the media because the organisation has noted an increase in recent years in harassment of journalists critical of President Yoweri Museveni’s government. TV reporter Gertrude Uwitware was kidnapped and badly beaten by unidentified assailants in April for posting a comment online in which she defended a well-known university academic accused of insulting the government. Uwitware was made to delete all of her Twitter and Facebook posts for being too critical. The university academic, Stella Nyanzi, was herself arrested on a charge of online harassment and insults under the 2011 Computer Misuse Act, the law that was used in June 2015 to convict Robert Shaka, an activist accused of leaking classified government information on Facebook under the pseudonym of Tom Voltaire Okwalinga (TVO). RSF fears that this law, which criminalizes the use of electronic communication to “disturb the peace, quiet or right of privacy of any person,” could be used to prosecute journalists identified by this new surveillance unit. Ben Byarabaha, the editor of the Red Pepper newspaper, was accused of violating this law when he was interrogated on 20 June by the Ugandan police Media Crimes Unit in connection with a story about on the health of Uganda’s Inspector General of Police. Blocking social networks to silence criticism The leading social networks were blocked in Uganda on the eve of President Museveni’s swearing-in for a fifth term in May 2016. Ugandans suddenly had difficulty in accessing Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, the three social networks routinely used by the country’s journalists to circulate news and information as it happens. WhatsApp, in particular, is also used by journalists to discuss how they cover news developments and organize their work. The authorities said the blocking, which continued throughout the afternoon, had been carried out for reasons linked to national security. When the authorities previously disconnected social networks during the presidential election on 18 February 2016, President Museveni said it was to prevent people “telling lies.” He added: “If you want a right, then use it properly.” In May 2016, the authorities also threatened to close down broadcast media outlets that provided live coverage of opposition activities. Uganda is ranked 112th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, after falling ten places in the space of a year.
