Arwa Mahdawi: ‘There’s a big difference between no-platforming and not promoting’ Hi Moira, I’ll jump right into it. Radio stations have started to drop R Kelly and Michael Jackson from their playlists. I support this. It would be hard to play these guys on the radio at the moment without it sounding like you’re either endorsing or ignoring their alleged behavior. But what I don’t support are calls for streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube to remove Kelly or Jackson’s music altogether. This isn’t because I think you should separate art from the artist – you shouldn’t. It’s because I’m vehemently against censorship and banning their music would be censorship. It’s really as simple as that. I think what’s key here is that there’s a big difference between no-platforming and not promoting. I know that’s obvious, but it feels like this distinction isn’t stressed enough in … [Read more...] about The debate: should Spotify ban R Kelly and Michael Jackson?
Boris Johnson could ban Chinese tech firm Huawei from the UK's 5G network over security fears, he signalled. The Prime Minister said the views of Britain's “Five Eyes” intelligence-sharing allies – the US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand – would prove crucial in whether to give the green light to the Far East firm. Critics warn the company is a security risk to the UK because it could allow backdoor entry to the Chinese state, allowing it to spy on people and government. Huawei insists it has never handed over information and nor would it do so. But speaking at a press conference at the NATO mini-summit in Watford, Herts, Mr Johnson said: “I don't want this country to be unnecessarily hostile to investment from overseas. “On the other hand, we cannot prejudice our vital national security interests, nor can we prejudice our ability to cooperate with other Five Eyes security partners, and that we will be how - that will be the key criterion that … [Read more...] about Boris Johnson signals he could ban Huawei from UK’s 5G network over security
CHAOTIC protests have been keeping Metropolitan Police alert as Extinction Rebellion's unrest causes more disruption. On Thursday the eco-warriors caused chaos by climbing on top of Jubilee line Tube trains, delaying the morning commute. Here's the lowdown on the London ban. Is Extinction Rebellion banned from the Tube? Metropolitan Police has banned the group’s climate protests in the capital. The decision has prompted thousands of Extinction Rebellion activists to gather across London in defiance of the ban. Human rights lawyer and representative of the group Tobias Garnett called the Met's actions “disproportionate and unlawful”. He also announced the group would be filing a High Court claim against the order.XR had previously stated its intention to target the London Underground and on October 17 they attempted to bring the Jubilee Line to a standstill. The group wrote on Twitter: “We rebel to drive the urgent changes needed to prevent mass … [Read more...] about Is Extinction Rebellion banned from the Tube in London?
The move to not ban the sale of second-hand clothing was a relief to petty traders. In 2015, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania agreed on a three-year plan to gradually phase out the importation of second-hand clothes and apparel from the United States in particular. Taxes were increased exponentially on second-hand clothes to deter more imports and a complete ban was to take effect in 2019. But the ban would have come at a heavy price. Sensing the danger, the Trump administration acted fast and issued an ultimatum for 23 February 2018, for these leaders to rescind their plan or face the consequences. The US did this to protect its second-hand export sector. And on that date before the ultimatum expired, leaders from the East Africa region, with the exception of Rwanda's Paul Kagame, met in Kampala to discuss the repercussions. In the end they caved in to US demands. However, the trade deficit for many African countries is instantly recognizable. Imports from … [Read more...] about Opinion: Banning second-hand imports doesn’t solve East Africa’s clothes problem
