Hare Krishna village demolished in Kazakhstan, religious persecution alleged

Posted by on July 27, 2014

Friday, November 24, 2006 

An ongoing struggle in Kazakhstan between the authorities and a local Hindu village has turned serious. Forum 18 has been documenting the alleged human rights abuse regarding the Hare Krishna village for some time, but as of 21st November events took a drastic turn.

The following was seen and written by Ninel Fokina, president of the Almaty Helsinki Committee, and Andrei Grishin, official member of the International Bureau of Human Rights and Law Observance:

On November 21, 2006 at 1 pm the information was received that according to the court decision to evict the members of the religion organization International Society for Krishna Consciousness from the occupied land near Sri Vrindavan Dham farm, and the demolition of 13 country houses will begin immediately.

Heavy equipment was brought to the suburban community: trucks, demolition machines, three busses with riot policemen, a bus with demolition squad and the local authorities including the Hakim. Electricity was disconnected in the morning of the same day.

There were only women and children in the village. All men went to work in town.

The president of the Almaty Helsinki Committee Ninel Fokina tried to contact different officials in Astana (the capital): B. Baikadamov, the envoy of human rights, B. Muhamedjanov, the minister for internal affairs I. Bakhtibayev, the assistant General Prosecutor; R. Aliev, the deputy minister for foreign affairs.

She had a conversation with B. Baikadamov, the only person she could reach at that time, who promised to communicate to the Committee of Religious Affairs at the Ministry of Justice, the Supreme Court, and the Court Administration Committee which includes the department of court decision execution.

At 3 pm representatives of human rights organizations: Ninel Fokina, Andrei Grishin, and Maxim Varfolomeev, press-secretary of the Society for Krishna Consciousness, plus, a journalist and representative of Astana TV channel left for the village which is located 40 km from Almaty.

All the roads to village were closed and patrolled by police. They would not let anyone go through. The human rights representatives and the journalist took detour through the fields. It was snowing, but they were able to reach the border of the village because of the four-wheel-drive jeep they were traveling in. But even that road was closed by patrol.

The jeep was not allowed to drive into the village. The patrol explained it was instruction of authorities. When Grishin and the jeep driver tried to pass by walk they were stopped and threatened to be put in handcuffs. And the patrol promised to send for additional force.

Lieutenant colonel, who came with another patrol car, explained that they are not allowed to the village for their own safety. He said that at that time the electric line was being dismounted in the area.

The driver of the jeep had his wife and two months old daughter in the village. He was begging to let him go through, but his request was denied. He was told that safety is guaranteed to his family. This group could still enter the village. They approached it from the other detour road, and leaving the car on the sidewalk, one by one they entered the village.

As they approached the village they met two small groups of young people who were not drunk but unnaturally exited.They held hammers, big dumb-bells, metal crow-bars and sticks. Two of them politely greeted the group, and one said gaily, “Your houses are finished.

Four big busses with toned windows and two cars of ambulance were parked at the entrance of the village in the grove. 30-40 policemen stood by the houses, and 20-30 people in civil clothes including the leaders of the district with the Hakim, the head of local executive authority stood on the street, watching the demolition.

It was snowing. Residents’ household stuff such as mattresses, blankets, utensils cookware, and furniture were laying outside on the lawns by their houses. People in construction outfits (labor people) got inside the houses and started crushing windows and doors, destroying walls. The bulldozer was demolishing the buildings and the big stone fencing with cast iron openwork lattice which separated the houses from the driving area.

A small group of inhabitants (20-30 people, mostly women) did not offer physical resistance. One of the women felt dizzy, fell down and was picked up by the ambulance. Police was bringing down those few (basically women) who tried to interfere with the destruction of their property. Two men tried to prevent the entrance of destroyers into a house, but were brought down by 15 policemen who twisted their hands and took them away to the police car.

During all these events none of the representatives from the Office of Public Prosecutor were present at the place of the event, even though both Krishna people and legal service people demanded meeting with representatives of the Office of Public Prosecutor who are obligated to be present during this type of actions.

The Hakim of the Yetisu district who was personally responsible for this action noticed A. Grishin photographing the destruction of the houses using a digital camera and commanded the policemen to detain him. A. Grishin is an officer of the Human Rights Bureau and a journalist.

To avoid confiscation of the camera A. Grishin tried to escape. He ran away by 200 meters and was caught by the police. Police officers confiscated his digital camera and took away his journalist certificate.

Then he was let free, but police refused to return the camera, saying that they would give it to the Hakim. The camera was indeed found in the car of the Hakim, but the flash card and the batteries were confiscated. When Grishin approached the Hakim to find out for what reason his camera and his journalist ID were confiscated, the Hakim told in front of the witnesses, “If I see you here again, I will personally crash Your eyes, even though I am the Hakim.”

No one of the policemen, who took part in the camera and ID confiscation, wanted to reveal their names.

Ms. Fokina was able to talk with the assistant of the General prosecutor I. Bakhtibayev, who did confirm that he would contact the prosecutor of the province and he would work out this situation.

The envoy of human rights E. Baikadamov, who was also contacted, said that the president of the Court Administration Committee Z. Makashev confirmed that he would contact immediately the provincial department and would give the appropriate instructions.

All the attempts of the representatives of the human rights organizations to find the people in charge of the operation and give them any information were unsuccessful.

All the present officials refused to speak and declared that they were not responsible for the action. The Police colonels would point at bailiffs. The bailiffs did not confirm their being bailiffs.

The OSCE representatives in Almaty Eugenia Benigni and Lisa Zhumakhmetova did not make it to the village. Their car just was stoped by police.

When the darkness fell, at around 6 pm, everything was finished: 13 houses destroyed, people thrown to the snowbound street, the village left without electricity, without heat and water.

The condition of the witnesses can be described as shock. The condition of the people who were thrown from their destroyed houses to the dirt and snow cannot be described.

When all the 13 buildings were destroyed as was planned … while the adjacent houses of other people who do not belong to the Society for Krishna Consciousness were left untouched even though their title deeds have the same status … the bailiffs decided to give an interview to the TV channel “to avoid one-sided opinion.” However no one of them introduced himself. The only thing they could say, “we are executing the court decision.”

Neither the Hakim, nor the police chiefs, nor the bailiffs would listen to the arguments that the governmental commission established to solve the issue around the Society for Krishna Consciousness has not yet come to final decision.

Notice: the notifications of eviction and demolition of the 13 houses owned by members of the cottage cooperative, who are the members of the religious organization Society for Krishna Consciousness, were delivered to the watchman of Sri Vrindavan Dham in the evening of November 20. The date of execution and the period for evacuating the buildings were not stated. It should be noted that the acting Kazakh law does not stipulate such a kind of eviction as the demolition of houses, and the eviction should be accompanied by the inventory of property removed from the evacuated building, while the storage of this property should be provided is necessary.

What You Should Try Vietnamese Food While Visiting Hoian

Posted by on July 27, 2014

Submitted by: Vacations Tovienam

Early in the morning, the cries of various food vendors drift along the narrow streets of Hoi An, a quaint, riverside town in central Vietnam. Strolling past old-fashioned, tile – roofed houses in the grey light of dawn, the vendors call out offers for rice pancakes, square sticky rice cakes, steamed sticky rice, rice pride and a number of other breakfast favorites. At the sun rises the town s restaurants start to open, the smells of steaming vermicelli, curries, and soups floating through the streets and causing my stomach to rumble.

At noon, locals and tourists alike settle down to bowls of Quang noodles, dumplings, country pancakes, and other local specialties. The side-walks crowd with small table set with little dishes of fish sauce, vine-gar, and lemon wedges, my companion and I walk through the narrow streets, our mouths watering. At last we find what we’re looking for: an old restaurant teeming with cus-town’s famed Quang noodle soup.

The noodles are made of rice flour and float in a clear broth among bits of shrimp and pork. The broth tastes sweet and pure. Named Quang noodles, this dish comes from Quang Nam province. We add sprigs of fresh basil, coriander, onion, and let-truce grown in Tra Que to the northeast of Hoi An. The shopkeeper tells us those herbs and vegetables grown in this region have a hot, acrid, and bitter sweet taste that complements the broth perfectly.

YouTube Preview Image

The best-specialty of Hoi An is a dish called Cao Lau that contains port and scraps of pork crackling. The handmade noodles are delicious, the dish rich and filling.

Long ago, the best-known places to eat Cao Lau were two restaurants owned by two men named Canh and Nam Co. Since many people in Hoi An area in the habit of eating late at night, a number of food shops and food vendors only start serving at midnight. Pho noodle soup, rice gruel with duck, boiled duck eggs, sweet green bean soup, and sweet black sesame soup are all popular as late-night snacks. Because residents know the peddlers’ routines, they often sit outside their front doors and wait for them to pass by with their favorite dishes.

While in Hoi An I grew to love the Vac cakes served at the Vinh Hung restaurant on Tran Phu Street. I can’t forget the taste of those cakes, small white rice flour dumplings dipped in fish sauce with lemon.

Along with rice flour, Vac cakes con-taint bean sprouts, shrimp, bamboo sprouts, and small pieces of pork. As the Cakes are shaped like flowers, many travelers refer to them as” White Rose Cakes.” They are best eaten with fried onions and dipped in a tasty dressing made of fish sauce, shrimp, lemon, and whatever other special ingredients the shop-keeper throws in. Some cooks add morsels of green chili to make the sauce spicier and more colorful.

Eaten with Vac cakes, Hoang Thanh dumplings are another local special-ty. An elderly man told me that these dumplings were named by King Can Long. According to his story, King Can Long was attacked by bandits while traveling in disguise through the region. The king man-aged to escape his captors but entered a small village inn in search of a meal, but there was no food to be found. The shopkeeper managed to find a little wheat flour, some shrimp and some eggs, and threw them together as best he could. Hungry as he was, the king found the meal delicious. He named the dish Hoanh Thanh, which means “clouds swallowing the moon.”

Although this dish looks similar to Chinese won ton the flavor of Hoanh Thanh is unique. Easy to digest, the dumplings make a healthy snack or light meal. Locals often serve the dumpling fried until gold en brown as an appetizer. Sometimes they are smothered in tomato sauce.

Hoi An has several famous Hoanh Thanh restaurants that are worth mentioning: Mrs. Hai Hue’s restaurant near Ong Pagoda, and Hoa Vinh restaurant, which stands in front of Ngu Bang Pagoda. An important trading port up to the 19th century, Hoi An once drew traders from china, Japan, the Middle East, and Europe, Perhaps the town’s cosmopolitan past explains the eclectic dishes served there today. It s easy to imagine long-ago sailors and merchants enjoying the town’s special “fast food” snacks. Whether you hunker down at a stall in Hoi An’s bustling market, take a seat on the balcony of an old wood-en shop house, or simply buy a snack off a passing food vendor, you are sure to enjoy this town’s distinctive culinary heritage. There’s no easier, or more enjoyable, way to get a sense of people’s daily lives in Hoi An than by sampling the local cuisine.

Bristol Organic Food Festival 2008 lauched, 100 thousand expected to attend

Posted by on July 27, 2014

Saturday, September 6, 2008 

The Bristol Organic Food Festival, which is Europe’s largest festival for organic food, launched today in Bristol. Wikinews reported from the event.

The event was opened at 11:00 local time (10:00 UTC) by Patrick Holden, director of the Soil Association, who said that the festival was ” the benchmark for what I hope will be the future development of festivals all over the country.”

The event includes a large farmers market, music, and a variety of different features run by 212 organic food and drink related organisations from the region.

Other events that took place today within the festival incuded a BBC run stall promoting organic food, and several stalls which encouraged young children to eat organic food, including a ‘cookery bus,’ which showed children how to cook different foods.

The festival takes place as sales of organic food in the UK are starting to fall. Research has found that organic food sales have fallen by 8.1% over the last year.

The event was launched despite the heavy rain which has occurred throughout the day in Bristol.

“People have got less money, their ordinary food shopping has gone through the roof; they’re cutting out luxuries. And I’m afraid organic is a luxury,” said economic analyst Ben Yearsley. This downturn in the organic food market has meant that some companies, such as WholeFoods Market are planning to close some of their stores. WholeFoods Market are one of the organisations that displayed at the festival.

Chef who appeared on Gordon Ramsay’s ‘Kitchen Nightmares’ commits suicide

Posted by on July 26, 2014

Wednesday, September 29, 2010 

Joseph Cerniglia, a chef who had appeared on Gordon Ramsay’s television show Kitchen Nightmares, has commited suicide. Cerniglia was the owner of Italian restaurant Campania. He jumped off a bridge into the Hudson river on the New York–New Jersey border. At the time of filming in 2007, Cerniglia owed suppliers $80,000.

Officials reported that 39-year-old Cerniglia had jumped off of the George Washington Bridge into the Hudson. His death has officially been ruled as suicide. His body was retrieved from the river after reports of a man jumping off of the bridge.

Ramsay released a statement to the Press Association saying “I was fortunate to spend time with Joe during the first season of Kitchen Nightmares. Joe was a brilliant chef, and our thoughts go out to his family, friends and staff.”

Cerniglia told Ramsay about his personal debt when he came to the restaurant in 2007. He said “I am financially in trouble. The debt of the restaurant alone is overwhelming. My personal debt — wife, kids, mortgage — that’s a lot of debt”.

Whole Foods moves to renewable energy

Posted by on July 24, 2014

Wednesday, January 11, 2006 

Whole Foods Market, a natural food grocery chain based in Austin, Texas, announced that it intends to use wind energy for all of its electrical needs. This will make the company the largest business to use renewable energy in the United States.

“It’s a sales driver rather than a cost,” Michael Besancon, a regional president for the company, said. “All of those things we do related to our core values: help drive sales, help convince a customer to drive past three or four other supermarkets on the way to Whole Foods.”

Since utility companies send power directly to the national utility grid, Whole Foods will purchase energy credits equivalent to 100% of the energy they use, a total of 458,000 megawatt-hours of wind energy credits per year from Renewable Choice Energy. That’s enough electricity to power 44,000 homes for a year.

Do not use. Pensioners or old age.

Two words, unhyphenated.

In the USA and the Philippines a Pledge of Allegiance. In all cases define to whom/what the pledge is made. (For example, in the United Kingdom new members of Parliament make their oath to the Queen.) After first mention, the oath.

Capitalized. Refers to the US President, Vice-President, and his appointees but especially to his Cabinet Secretaries:

A brief article announcing the death of a person, and briefly commemorating that person’s life, closing by mentioning the individual’s next-of-kin and survivors. The next-of-kin and family have editorial control of the content of an obituary, and their wishes should generally be respected. In general an obituary is submitted by the family, excepting extraordinary individuals of popular and general interest and importance.

Family-generated obituaries should have the death verified, the article basically copy-edited, and be published expeditiously without regard to its apparent newsworthiness or timeliness.

Not obligato.

Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, president of Equatorial Guinea since 1979.

Interchangeable, however in the United Kingdom there is a preference for oblige.

oblivious of“, never oblivious to. It means lacking awareness of something, being forgetful of something, and does not mean ignorant or uncomprehending.

Author.

Wikinews is not censored. Neither, however, is it gratuitously offensive. Where an image is central to a story, for example Janet Jackson’s wardrobe failure at the 2004 Superbowl event, it certainly may be used. However, the less-sensational image immediately after the event ( on Wikipedia) is actually more illustrative of the controversy engendered.

Regarding words deemed obscene, and not images, there is no place in journalism to use language offensive to the readership except in direct quotes and, possibly but rarely, in editorials. Wikinews does not publish editorials. In direct quotes, do not alter text to appear less offensive such as f**k, *sshole, c***, etc. There is no requirement to use a quote which includes obscenity, but there is no justification for altering a quote squeamishly either.

Intellectually dull or dim-witted.” (Wiktionary) Beware confusion with obstruse, obscure.

Not occured.

Also known as the principle of economy. Prefer this spelling to Ockham’s Razor. (Broadly speaking, the simplest explanation is more likely correct.)

Two Rs.

The geographical region composed of Pacific islands regions (Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia), Australia and New Zealand.

Though it is nearly as common as octopuses, the argument for octopi as the plural is wrong; octopus is evolved from Greek, not Latin, and the Greek plural would be octopodes. Use the anglicized plural which is most common and avoid such silly arguments.

The recognized border between Poland and Germany (1990). Do not use either the Polish (Granica na Odrze i Nysie ?u?yckiej) or the German (Oder-Neiße-Grenze). The name is drawn from the Oder and Lusatian Neisse rivers, which form the majority of the border.

Full title Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O’Donnell, Sir Gus thereafter.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, OECD thereafter.

Lowercase.

Omit in constructions such as “half of the workers”, “all of the candidates”.

Verboten. See clichés.

No hyphen, single word.

In organizations which differentiate, do not confuse enlisted, ratings, or non-commissioned officers (NCOs or noncoms) with officers. These are primarily military organizations such as Army or Navy.

Not O!

Some terms are formed as adjectival, others as modifier, still others as specific. Through use these have become standardized, but keep in mind that many of these words and phrases are very young as words go. The following list is of the most popular formulations by usage on the internet; there may be specific reasons to use a different formulation:

Do not write okay, o-kay, etc. (The term is the abbreviation for the fanciful spelling oll korrect, part of a fad for deliberate misspellings in the 1830s.)

Capitalization for the Britishism (former pupil of a school.)

Capitalize for a well-established and defined area.

Chiefly European artist or artworks active between approximately 1450 and 1800, although the term is somewhat flexible for time. Note capitalization to avoid confusion.

Olympics is an acceptable substitute usually after first mention, or the Games (note caps for either), but generally the -s is omitted in adjectival use, e.g. Olympic stadium, Olympic athlete. Note the United Kingdom’s Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport Jeremy Hunt, whose title includes the -s.

Lower case in general, but capitals in the specific – even for the unofficial title Parliamentary Ombdusman (the United Kingdom’s Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration Ann Abraham.) Avoid the use of ombudsperson; although perhaps more sex-neutral, it is clumsy and not widely accepted. In some cases ombudsman is considered the official title – check with the office before using ombudswoman unless it used in the office’s own writings.

Lowercase and hyphen for the fatty acids.

Not omelet.

William Strunk’s 13th rule, it’s explanatory text begins with the following paragraph, which I consider required reading for every writer intending publication:

Consider the following:

In the interest of or as a representative of is appropriate usage. “The statement betrays a lack of understanding on behalf of the politician” is just plain wrong, as well as excess verbiage.

When in reference to any form of craft, prefer to aboard to avoid confusion. Also, indicates active alignment with a party or viewpoint, rather than simple agreement on a specific issue. e.g. Vice-President Cheney was on board the effort by the military-industrial complex to eliminate public oversight of military contract awards.

Use the singular verb in constructions such as “one in three says prices are high” or “one in three is feeling the pinch”, just as you should use the singular verb for one as the subject: “one says prices are high” or “one is feeling the pinch“.

In first-person voice, do not use both “I” and “one” as a pronoun. In general most uses of one as a pronoun can instead be stated as you, which in those cases is preferable.

If more than two, each other two only.

No hyphens unless used adjectivally, e.g. a one-member, one-vote system.

Do not use to indicate former.

Avoid use. Try continuing or almost anything else.

No hyphens.

Use with care; place directly before the word or phrase to be qualified. e.g. “Only he touched the switch.” “He only touched the switch.” “He touched the only switch.”

Unlike into, generally better used as two separate words. “She moved on to the floor.” “She moved onto the floor.” The second is acceptable, but can only refer to her physical location.

Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC thereafter.

In the USA, strip mining.

No quotes, hyphenate when used adjectively; e.g. open-skies policy.

Do not use this phrase. en.Wikinews does not engage in outing so it is redundant. Only discuss a person’s sexuality directly if it is specifically relevant to the story.

Not optomologist nor opthalmologist.

Capitalize as a noun, but lower case in adjectival use. e.g. “He accused the Opposition of lying.” vs. “He said it was an opposition lie.

A conservative organization within the Roman Catholic Church, a personal prelature of the Pope, thus it is not a “sect”.

Does not require being preceded by “either”, though it may be stronger so. Avoid it being immediately preceded by a comma.

Not to be confused with verbal. Oral pertains to the mouth; verbal pertains to words.

Do not hyphenate as orang-utan.

Spell out first through tenth, use cardinals thereafter as 11th, 23rd, 51st.

A local law or regulation, or a prescribed religious ceremony or practice.

Military equipment, especially weaponry, ammunition.

Do not describe products as “organic”, generically. Instead, define them as “certified organic” and state the certifying body or document on first mention.

Anything which is or was once living is organic. Organic compounds involve carbon. Organic chemistry is the chemistry of organic compounds.

Never say organic foods are grown without chemicals; in fact there are often a range of chemicals, both synthetic and naturally occurring, which are used in growing and/or processing organic foods. Most organic standards do not certify GMO foods, however USA government standards do. Non-GMO standards also generally allow a percentage of the product to be GMO, due to the invasive character of many patented genes such as “Round-up Ready™” crops.

Orkney or the Orkney Islands, not the Orkneys.

Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe at first mention, OSCE thereafter.

Only capitalize in Australia.

Outdoor is adjectival, the outdoors is noun.

Do not use. Especially, do not use for sexual predators such as paedophiles due to the term’s association with homosexualtiy; sexual minorities are not to be equated with sexual criminals. Instead, use terms such as exposed, revealed for criminals. Wikinews does not engage in outing.

No hyphen.

With acute accent.

Do not use the construction “outside of’“; e.g. outside the committee not outside of the committee.

Do not use as a synonym for “more” when followed by a number. That is, “more than 10,000 barrels a day” not “over 10,000 barrels a day”, “delayed more than six months” not “delayed over six months”.

As a prefix, use a hyphen where adjectival, no hyphen where noun, even when it results in a double r. e.g. They refunded the overpayment; despite the over-estimated price we felt it we had good value. Over-age is always hyphenated, as is under-age (the term has a different etymology and meaning from overage.)

Do not use as an alternative for over or too.

In general, avoid use of this “catch-all” term for all things Oxford and Cambridge.

See serial comma.

A figure of speech involving two or more words which apparently contradict each other. Examples: “the living dead” (Wasteland), “We demand rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty!” (The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy)
