Surfrider Foundation Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 17 maggio 2010

Gijon, Spain 20 May at 14H30 press conference, to be held will be an exceptional opportunity for this representative group to make its demands understood.  Parties in attendance will include: surf federations (European as well as Spanish, French and Portuguese), representatives of the surf, skate and board industries (such as Eurosima, the European association of surf, skate and board industries and Rip Curl) and of course Surfrider Foundation Europe.  All of these bodies will have the opportunity to express themselves in relation to the environmental stakes concerning them. Surfrider Foundation Europe (SFE) will once again affirm its role as an environmental association for the defence of the ocean and its users, at the 3rd annual meeting of Europe’s highest level of relevant stakeholders. It’s time for Europe to re-think and assess. Environmental questions are becoming more and more prevalent and pressing.  In front of key economic stakeholders in the maritime sector, as well as European elected representatives, notably M. Barroso, and scientific and environmental associations, more than 40 SFE representatives will support 2 important projects: – a petition, 50 000 signatures strong, demanding that waste is finally considered a  pollution like other forms of pollution (and not just a visual nuisance) ; and – the launch of a new representative group that has signed a ‘Plea for the Sea, the Ocean and their Users’, in order to defend its interests before the Commission. At the end of the afternoon, on San Lorenzo beach, Gijon, Surfrider Foundation Europe volunteers will invite European Commissioners present at the European Maritime Day, to be introduced to the surf, in order to allow them to see through the eyes of real ocean and wave users. An Hawaiian water sharing ritual, the famous Ho’okupu, will also allow participants to show their respect for the ocean while keeping in store a little surprise for you

Sudan Elections 2010

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 14 luglio 2009

By Hassan Abdel Ati The first democratic election in Sudan was organized in 1953 during the 3 years self rule period in the count down to independence on the first of January 1956. Yet during the 53 years of independence only 4 (four) democratic elections were organized because for 42 years Sudan was under military and/or civilian dictatorship (1958-64, 1969-85, 1989-2009). One of the major gains for all Sudanese people brought about by the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed in 2005 between the Sudan People Liberation Army (SPLA) and the Sudan Government led by the National Congress Party (NCP), was the clauses committing the two parties to a free and fair democratic election in the middle of the 6-years transitional period agreed upon (2006-2011).
