Membership and structures

first_imgThe Partnership is a voluntary association of communicators who have come together out of a sense of common responsibility to use the 2010 communication opportunity to create a better life for all.The partnership is not a legal entity – it is a partnership of communicators across sectors and creative and communication disciplinesAll communicators who wish to contribute to the furthering of the communication objectives of the Partnership can become part of this voluntary association.However, the Partnership does not provide access to the 2010 tournament terrain which belongs to FIFA, its sponsors, commercial affiliates and supporters, and the Organising Committee.The Partnership will form alliances with communicators across the African continent and in the diaspora so collectively we can use this opportunity to tell our stories of the African continent.The Partnership is championed by a Core Group of activist members broadly reflective of marketing, media, communication, advertising, public relations, market research, tourism, sports, government, public agencies and parastatals. Within the Core Group all sectors of society – labour, business, government, and civil society – are included.The Partnership will also drive engagements within the clusters which make up the Core Group – marketing and advertising, tourism, media and communication and arts and culture – for sustained coherence and coordination through exchange of information and sharing of strategy and plans.A Task Team drawn from the Core Group drives the work of the Partnership, and meets monthly.Government Communication and Information System and the International Marketing Council provide a joint secretariat to enable the work of the Partnership.The year long schedule of engagements culminates in an annual 2010 National Communication Partnership conference. Relationship to FIFA and the Organising CommitteeThe Organising Committee is a member of the 2010 National Communication Partnership.In 2005 the Organising Committee facilitated a meeting between representatives of the Partnership and FIFA. FIFA gave support to the approach of a partnership of communicators and its objectives of taking advantage of the World Cup opportunity to communicate about the country and continent.last_img read more

Report Finds Skype Now Accounts for About 25% of International Call Minutes

first_imgTags:#voice#web Related Posts “Demand for international communications remains strong,” says TeleGeography analyst Stephan Beckert. “But ever more people are discovering that they can communicate without the services of a telco.”That discovery isn’t simply for international calls, as Skype is increasingly used for domestic calling as well. The service has also added video calling features, most recently to its iPhone app. And Skype is one of many companies rumored to be looking at an IPO in 2011. When Skype suffered a massive outage days before Christmas, the response – on Twitter, on Facebook, and in comments here on ReadWriteWeb – all pointed to the huge popularity of and reliance on the VOIP service, particularly when it comes to talking to friends, family and co-workers overseas. Indeed, data released today from the research firm TeleGeography confirms that Skype is increasingly becoming the means by which international calls are made.According to TeleGeography, growth in international call traffic grew by an estimated 4% in 2010, to 413 billion minutes, down slightly from a 5% growth rate in 2009 and down substantially from the 15% average growth rate from the previous two decades. Skype, however, has seen a huge uptick in growth, particularly in the last two years.TeleGeography notes that international calls may be made less frequently, in part, due to the recession of the last few years, something that affected both the business and personal demands for cross-border calling.However, the challenge to international telcos isn’t simply an economic one, as TeleGeography’s data shows phenomenonal growth for Skype, which is now by far the largest provider of international voice-based communications. Skype’s growth rate outpaced that of international phone traffic in 2009. But it skyrocketed in 2010, growing by 45 billion minutes – more than twice the volume added by all the world’s phone companies, combined.

Lawyers protest arrest of Nagpur advocate Surendra Gadling

first_imgLawyers from the Indian Association of People’s Lawyers have expressed their concern over the arrest of advocate Surendra Gadling from his house in Nagpur, alleging an attack on lawyers who are fighting cases of marginalised people.Mr. Gadling has been arrested in relation with the violence at Bhima Koregaon near Pune when Dalits congregated to celebrate the British victory over Peshwas with the help of Mahar soldiers.Addressing the media here on Thursday, IAPL vice-president Sudha Bharadwaj said that the sudden arrest was part of a pattern where “people’s lawyers” are being targeted, in violation of the widely-held norm that “being a lawyer of a political prisoner is not a crime”.A release by the IAPL said that this is part of a larger pattern: advocates Upendra Nayak of Odisha, Murugan of Tamil Nadu and Satyendra Chaubey of Chhattisgarh “have all been implicated in the cases of their own clients, which is absolutely unacceptable as per United Nations principles on the role of lawyers”.“In the morning of June 6, 2018, the Pune Police arrested senior advocate Surendra Gadling from his house in Nagpur at 6 a.m. The arrest has been made in connection with an FIR registered on January 8, 2018 at Vishrambaug PS in Pune. The FIR originally alleged inciting communal harmony at the Elgar Parishad program organised on December 31, 2018 to commemorate 200 years of the victory of Mahar soldiers over the Peshwa in the Bhima Koregaon battle,” the release said. “In March 2018, the case was converted into a criminal conspiracy. On April 17, 2018, though the FIR did not originally name advocate Gadling, the police raided his house and office and confiscated all possible CDs, hard disks, computer systems – including the family’s devices. Yesterday he and other intellectuals and activists were arrested in the same case, by adding several sections of the draconian Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), which ensures long detention and difficulty in obtaining bail.”Apart from Mr. Gadling, head of the English department at Nagpur University Shoma Sen, Marathi poet Sudhir Dhavale, Rona Wilson of the Committee for the Release of Political Prisoners and anti-displacement activist Mahesh Raut have also been arrested.“The bias of the state is all the more obvious when the leaders of Hindutva organisations named in many complaints and FIRs as instigators of the Bhima Koregaon violence – Milind Ekbote and Sambhaji Bhide – whose anticipatory bail applications have been refused by even the Supreme Court, still roam free,” the release said.last_img read more
