“RSF helps free and independent voices to resist, in country of origin and exile”

first_imgNews June 19, 2017 – Updated on June 20, 2017 “RSF helps free and independent voices to resist, in country of origin and exile” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) publishes a report of its assistance work every year on World Refugee Day. In 2016 and 2017, RSF has continued to assist journalists and media outlets that want to keep operating despite the often grave threats to which they are exposed. RSF_en RSF has for years been extending its support to journalists who continue to provide news and information in a climate that, as seen in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, is often hostile to the media.For example, RSF helps journalists to pay their legal fees when they are being arbitrarily prosecuted in connection with their reporting. It helps journalists who are the victims of physical violence to pay their medical bills. And it assists their families, the collateral victims of the actions of those who did not want the truth exposed. Nearly half of the assistance grants allocated in 2016 went towards covering the cost of relocating journalists in danger or otherwise helping them to find a safe refuge. Because of threats, many have no choice but to leave their homes and go to another city, another region or even another country. RSF helps them to relocate to a safe place and to cover their most urgent needs on arrival.Some journalists are able to return and resume working after a few weeks or months but the degree of danger often makes it impossible to return quickly. Every year, dozens of journalists, especially those who have been persecuted for years, are forced to accept that they cannot go back.In 2016, RSF channelled its funding above all into supporting those who continue to provide news and information despite being harassed. Two thirds of the funds allocated went to assisting the activities of independent media or organizations.“RSF tries to help journalists and media outlets to continue to make their free and independent voices heard in their country of origin or in exile,” said Martial Tourneur, the head of RSF’s Assistance Desk.The recipients of RSF’s assistance have included two of its historic partners, Journalist in Danger (JED) in Democratic Republic of Congo and the Journalistic Freedoms Observatory (JFO) in Iraq. These two NGOs are tireless watchdogs, monitoring the freedom of journalists and the media in two very violent countries that are ranked 154th and 158th respectively in the 2017 World Press Freedom Index. The media outlets assisted by RSF include some that have seized the torch of journalism again in exile, notably media created by journalists who were originally based in Syria until the security situation there became too difficult (see below).A combat without bordersAlthough 10,000 km apart, JED and JFO have set themselves to the same task. Created in 1998 and 2004 respectively, these two historic partners of RSF document abuses against journalists and support the media throughout their respective countries. As the DRC and Iraq have sunk ever deeper into political uncertainty and violence, the work of these two NGOs has been more necessary than ever.In 2016, RSF provided them with financial assistance to enable them to continue their monitoring and advocacy in defense of freedom of the media and journalists. JED has also been able to carry out several visits to journalists in the provinces.Statement by JED secretary-general Tshivis TshivuadiRSF’s support enables us to continue playing our whistleblowing role“In 2016, we were able to carry out several visits to the provinces in order to reinforce our knowledge of the media situation there. We were also able to organize a round-table in July on the subject of ‘media, power and civil society’ that brought journalists, media experts and NGO representatives together to establish the bases of an alert mechanism for the safety and protection of journalists.“Congolese journalists are often targeted by those who hold political power, who accept neither criticism nor exposure. This is why it is crucial for an organization such as JED – which is also subjected to a great deal of harassment from the same perpetrators – to continue its ‘whistleblowing’ role and to remind public office holders of their obligations. We also try to encourage the emergence of a dialogue between the journalistic community and the authorities. Such a dialogue is vital for guaranteeing better respect for the media’s work and improving the situation of journalists.“On 3 May 2017, World Press Freedom Day, we reported that there had been 69 cases of abuses so far this year, as against 41 during the same period in 2016. This is an increase of almost 70% and speaks clearly to the critical nature of the political and security situation.”Statement by Bashar Mandalawi, JFO representative in WashingtonOur financial independence of the government guarantees our freedom and effectiveness“There is almost daily violence against the Iraqi media. The number of potential perpetrators of abuses against journalists increases as the security climate declines. Journalists are targeted from all sides – including members of extremist groups such as Islamic State, pro-government militias and even members of the army, the security forces and political parties.“In such a political context, the JFO clearly cannot accept funding from Iraqi governmental organizations or political parties. Our financial independence guarantees our freedom and effectiveness. RSF’s support enabled the JFO to continue operating in 2016. We continue to work actively to ensure our organization’s financial survival, thanks to the support of our members.“It is important that NGOs such as the JFO continue to talk to the authorities, to remind them of their responsibilities and call them to account. The rise of extremism and militias has hit journalism hard and has also undermined the authority of governmental institutions, which nonetheless have obligations and a clear role to play as regards media freedom and fundamental freedoms in general.”Aside from the JFO and JED, which pursue RSF’s goals in their individual countries, RSF has provided assistance to media outlets that embody the fight for freely and independently reported news and information. They include Syrian media that have had to move abroad because the danger within Syria is so great.Syrian journalists seeking safety and the ability to keep reportingHundreds of journalists had to flee Syria because of the scale of the crackdown on the media after the popular uprising began in 2011. The Syrian exile media were often created by citizen-journalists but six years of experience have enabled them to become much more professional. The initial revolutionary rhetoric has given way to more objectivity and impartiality. Time and the war’s prolongation have created other, major challenges, including funding. Heavily dependent on the support of institutional donors, the Syrian exile media are finding it hard to keep operating.In 2016 and 2017, RSF has continued to assist media outlets created in recent years by Syrian journalists after fleeing their country. RSF provided assistance worth a total of €40,000 to five Syrian exile media outlets.The recipients included Saiedat Souria, a monthly created in 2013 that is distributed in Syria and the Turkish border area. It focuses on the situation of Syrian women and enables them to express their views, promote their rights and seek their emancipation.RSF’s support was designed to help some of these media outlets to overcome a temporary funding shortfall. Other support projects helped media to acquire the equipment they needed to continue or develop their activities.During the past year, RSF also allocated a total of 30 assistance grants to individual Syrians, mostly those who had just fled their country. The grants helped them relocate safely or cover their most urgent needs in exile. In February 2016, for example, €1,500 was given to a Syrian journalist who had recently fled to Gaziantep, in southeastern Turkey. The grant helped him to move away from the Syrian border because he had received threatening messages from members of Islamist militias. RSF’s funding also helped several journalists who had obtained French visas to relocate to France from the countries where they had found initial refuge.RSF assistance activities in figuresIn 2016, RSF allocated 131 assistance grants to individuals, media outlets and NGOs with an overall value of more than €330,000.131 assistance grantsMore than €330,000 allocated 47% of grants were to help secure threatened journalists67% of the funds allocated went to independent media outlets or NGOs Help by sharing this information Organisation Activities in the fieldProtecting journalists Activities in the fieldProtecting journalists last_img read more

Reporter fatally shot while covering opposition party meeting

He died of the injury shortly after being admitted to Conakry’s Donka Hospital.The shooting started during clashes between supporters of UFDG president Cellou Dalein Diallo and supporters of Bah Oury, the party’s former deputy leader, who wanted to attend the meeting although Oury was recently expelled from the party.“We deplore this journalist’s death during the performance of his duties and we hope that the investigation will lead to the identification of those responsible as quickly as possible,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. Guinea’s main press associations – GUIPEL, URTELGUI, AGEPI, UPLG and REMIGUI – have registered as interested parties in the investigation opened by the judicial authorities. A day without newspapers has been announced for today as a sign of mourning for Diallo. Guinea’s main opposition party has been torn by internal disputes ever since Oury’s return to Guinea on 24 January after four years in France. Sentenced in absentia to life imprisonment in connection with a coup attempt in 2011, he was granted a pardon by President Alpha Condé last DecemberGuinea is ranked 102nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Fanplayr Announces Launch of Personalized SMS for Brands

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – January 28, 2021 Pinterest Previous articleEvolent Health Named One Of The Best Places To Work For LGBTQ Equality By Human Rights Campaign FoundationNext articleCubic Corporation Earns Top Marks in Human Rights Campaign’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index Digital AIM Web Support Local NewsUS News Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Facebookcenter_img Facebook The addition of SMS marketing products positions Fanplayr as one of the only providers offering fully integrated Artificial Intelligence for e-commerce PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 28, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Fanplayr, a leader in online behavioral personalization and artificial intelligence for the past 10 years, announced it will add Personalized SMS to its menu of products for targeting lead generation and online shoppers. SMS (short message service) is an intuitive next step in the development of Fanplayr’s fully integrative approach to behavior personalization. Most companies begin by targeting customers on their website, then work with an ESP to push out offers and notifications via email. In the past, that data would need to be transferred and shared with a third-party SMS provider to send text messages and fully close the loop on customer experience and conversion. “Adding SMS will allow us to be fully integrative in our approach for customers,” says Simon Yencken, Founder and CEO of Fanplayr. “In the past we’ve worked with other providers to fill the SMS product need. Now, instead of sharing the data between providers, we’re able to service the client throughout the entire stream of interaction with their customer.” And it seems SMS marketing returns much better results than email marketing. SMS marketing ads have on average a 90% open rate, a 45% conversion rate, and will be read within 90 seconds of deployment. ( This far outperforms the response rate of 6% for email marketing.) Furthermore, smartphone owners use their phones for messaging more than making phone calls, with 70% of respondents pointing to messaging as a top function of their smartphone, ahead of phone calls (62%) and email (54%), according to a study from Axway. As consumers become more comfortable with text message interactions with brands, SMS tends to be more productive, and more expensive at the outset, than other products. Therefore, it’s critical to target the right people as narrowly as possible to return the most profitable results for the investment. Fanplayr’s full knowledge of a brand’s customer streams makes this optimization a reality. “As we continue to develop more sophisticated customer streams, SMS is a critical part of Fanplayr being full-service for all our customers,” says Rajiv Sunkara, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer. “Having the full picture of customer intentions, from first point of contact to closing each sale, sets Fanplayr apart from other providers who manage only one piece of the story. It gives our customers more actionable data, better insights, and has led to increased sales performance for all our customers.” About Fanplayr Fanplayr is a global leader in e-commerce behavioral data, using machine learning and AI to enable businesses to increase conversion rates and revenue, collect more leads, and retarget visitors with personalized recommendations during and after the shopping experience.
