PSG interested in signing Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez

first_img PSG coach Unai Emery is looking for a player who can play out wide and also as the striker, and both Jese and Lacazette fit this profile. 29/07/2016 Sport EN The Canarian forward’s exit may come in the form of a transfer or a loan – it could end up being something like the deal that took Alvaro Morata to Juventus.  Jese’s future looks like it lies far from Real Madrid, after Zinedine Zidane told him he was not being counted on for the season ahead. His agent Gines Carvajal has got to work and lined up a couple of moves, with L’Equipe saying that Paris Saint-Germain are in for the forward, using him as Plan B if their attempted to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon fails.

At Boca-River Superclasico, fans take centre stage

first_imgThey call it the greatest rivalry in football and the people who watch it the greatest fans in the world. And this weekend, they are calling the meeting of Argentina’s Boca Juniors and River Plate the greatest final ever.While Europe has the Champions League with money, glamour, and organisation, the Copa Libertadores played in South America is all about grit, passion and unpredictability.Saturday’s match between Argentina’s two biggest clubs – known as the Superclasico – is almost as much about the fans as the players. The threat of chaos, both on and off the field, is omnipresent.The two teams drew the first leg 2-2 at Boca’s hallowed Bombonera ground in Buenos Aires on Nov. 11. The decisive second leg takes place this Saturday at River Plate’s Monumental stadium on the other side of town.For the most passionate of followings, it is all or nothing.“This is a very important match, we cannot lose,” said Vicente Zucala, a 29-year old blind fan of River Plate. “If we lose, we’re done, it will all be over.”Boca have won the Libertadores six times and River have won it three, but this is the first time in the competition’s 58-year they have met in the final.Both matches were sold out, with people coming from all over the world just to soak up the atmosphere.“River Plate for me is my life, my passion,” said Byron Stuardo Alquijay, a 33-year old who came from Guatemala. “I had to sell my car to come here. I might buy another car in the future but this match will never be repeated.”Unlike in the past, when rival fans could occupy either end of the stadium praying for a chance to taunt their opponents, only home fans have tickets for the final’s two matches.Away fans have been banned from Argentine derby matches because of recurring trouble between competing sets of barras bravas, the name given to the organised fan groups who roar their support from the terraces.“The Superclasico between Boca and River is so important because the fans are so passionate,” said Cayetano Milon, a 51-year old Boca fan who runs a shop next to the Bombonera.That rawness is what appeals to many old-school fans and what makes the Libertadores so different from the Champions League and European football in general.FOOTBALL UNREFINEDOn the field it is unpredictable – 18 different sides have made it to the last 10 Libertadores finals, compared to just 10 in the Champions League.Off the field, there is a different level of commitment, even for those used to Kop at Liverpool, the Yellow Wall at Borussia Dortmund, or fireworks and fervour in the Balkans.Grounds such as La Bombonera are steeped in history, even though many are ramshackle and run down and often lacking proper seats, proper cover and even proper toilets.Many of the stadiums are part of the community and remain in the same place they were built decades ago, still hemmed in by houses and shops.The fans are separated from the players by moats, running tracks or chain-link fences. Sometimes the corners are fitted with perspex to stop drinks and bodily fluids raining down on opposition players.In the Libertadores, pitches are not always pristine, tackles from behind are common, and it is normal to see the matches end with officials surrounded by riot police, their shields protecting them from fans and players.The South American Football Confederation wants to make the competition more like the Champions League – a tough task given their prize money is only one-tenth of their European counterparts.One of the big changes is to end the home-and-away format for the final and make it a one-off event in a neutral venue.The change will take effect next year and has infuriated fans who say the distances and costs involved will rob ordinary supporters of the chance to see their team in the biggest match of the season, and perhaps of their lives.It also means this Boca-River showdown is the last of its kind. This weekend therefore carries a special poignancy for fans of both teams.“Personally, I don’t like the River-Boca matches,” said River fan Maria Fe Diaz, whose father once had a heart attack during a derby match. “They are too stressful for me. I didn’t want this match to happen. I don’t know how I’m going to make it until Saturday.”last_img read more

Ecuador’s indigenous Cofán hail court-ordered end to mining on their land

first_imgA court in Ecuador’s Sucumbíos province has ordered that the mining concessions already in operation on territory claimed by the Cofán indigenous people, and those currently in the process of being granted, must be canceled, affecting some 324 square kilometers (125 square miles) in total.The ruling also requires that reparations be made for any impacts caused by recent mining.For the community, the court’s decision is a victory that represents a milestone for the rights of all indigenous communities in Ecuador. In January 2018, the Cofán indigenous people of Sinangoe, Ecuador, discovered several machines mining the Aguarico riverbed near Cayambe Coca National Park. This came as a surprise to them because they’d never been consulted about any mining projects in their territory. They decided to speak out against the violation of their rights to prior consultation as well as the rights of nature and a healthy environment, which are both recognized in the Ecuadoran constitution.After nearly a year of legal struggle to halt the mining and the water pollution that came with it, the provincial court of Sucumbíos ordered that the concessions already in operation and those currently in the process of being granted must be canceled, affecting some 324 square kilometers (125 square miles) in total. With the court’s ruling, mining will not be allowed in any of those areas. Additionally, the decision requires the reparation and/or remediation of the areas already affected by mining. Before any new concession is granted, miners must begin the prior consultation process with the Cofán de Sinangoe community.When members of the Cofán community learned of the verdict in October 2018, they were overjoyed. “Sinangoe is fighting for the well-being of everyone, not only for the A’i Cofán community, but for everyone in Sucumbíos province: for the A’i Cofán, Siona, Secoya, Kichwa, and for other nationalities that are uniting to defend their rivers,” said Mario Criollo, the president of the Cofán community of Sinangoe. “This victory is a great achievement for our children and for future generations. We will continue to watch over our land and fight to have our property titles.”The Cofán community of Sinangoe spent months protesting state entities that granted mining concessions in their territory without the community’s permission. Image by Jerónimo Zuñiga for Amazon Frontlines.Not only was the violation of their right to prior consultation recognized, the court also reaffirmed their rights to water, a healthy environment, and the right of nature. “These themes were included in the community’s initial complaint, but they were not recognized in the court’s first decision,” said María Espinosa, coordinator of the Amazon Frontlines legal program and a lawyer for the Cofán de Sinangoe. “We are pleasantly surprised that this judge has done such an extensive analysis of rights. [This decision] extends its analysis to indicate that other communities and groups are equally affected.”This victory, in Criollo’s words, sets an important standard for the Cofán community and for all the indigenous communities in Ecuador defending their territories from mining. Also in October, Ecuador’s National Water Secretariat (SENAGUA) recognized the Cofánes, Chingual and Aguarico rivers as protected waters, a move that reinforces the court’s decision and represents a step forward in the application of the rights of nature.A nearly year-long legal battleFollowing the discovery of mining activities, the Cofán community requested a protective action with the help of the Ombudsman’s office to halt the mining. In an article published by Mongabay Latam in September 2018,  Nicolas Mainville, the coordinator of the environmental monitoring program at Amazon Frontlines, described how the mining was affecting the area. “In [the Puerto Libre concession], 37 acres [15 hectares] of trees were cut down, over one mile [1.6 kilometers] of road was constructed, and seven different sites were added that included pools and camps,” he said.According to Mainville the levels of pollution in the Aguarico River were not being measured, so it is unknown how much cyanide was used in the mining operations. Members of the Cofán community had requested these measurements many times, arguing that they could see a change in the water color.The Aguarico River has been contaminated by mining activity. Image by Jerónimo Zuñiga for Amazon Frontlines.Halfway through the year, they received good news: in a historic decision on July 27, a judge from the canton of Gonzalo Pizarro, an administrative division in Sucumbíos province, ruled in favor of the Cofán community and the Ombudsman’s office. The judge declared that the community’s right to free and informed prior consultation had been violated, ruling against the Ministry of Mining, the Ministry of Environment, the Mining Regulation and Control Agency (ARCOM), and SENAGUA. The court ordered the immediate suspension of all 20 mining concessions that had already been granted, along with the 32 concessions that were still being processed. This decision affirmed the communities’ claims regarding their right to prior consultation, but not to water, a healthy environment or the rights of nature.However, the decision was immediately appealed by the defendants. At the appeal hearing on Sept. 5, the institutions named as defendants in the case claimed that it had not been necessary to do the prior consultation process because, they said, the mining activity did not take place within Cofán territory, nor did it affect the interests or rights of those in the community.  “There is a clear lack of knowledge and an act of bad faith on the part of the ministries,” Espinosa said at the time.In the midst of these tensions, the three judges hearing the appeal decided to postpone their verdict until after they visited the area to observe the damages and analyze the arguments given by the parties. Uncertainty and anxiety in the Cofán community grew until Oct. 22, when the judges issued the historic ruling in their favor.The Cofán have expressed concern that the Aguarico River’s crystal-clear water may be contaminated with cyanide. Image by Jerónimo Zuñiga for Amazon Frontlines.Consultation or notification?Espinosa spoke to Mongabay Latam about the importance of this case. “This [ruling] confirms that their right to prior consultation was violated. It recognizes that they are the ancestral owners of that land and that decisions affecting them can’t be made without consulting them or knowing their opinions, especially for mining activity,” she said.However, Espinosa pointed out that even if the Cofán community was to be consulted before future mining concessions were granted, there were no guarantees the community’s position would be adhered to since there are no laws in Ecuador regulating the prior consultation process.“The guideline applied by the government for the consultation turns it into a process of simply notifying and informing the communities, but it doesn’t take into account their opinions,” Espinosa said. “Therefore, until a law exists that is created by consulting and agreeing with members of the community, they will not accept nor yield to any consultation processes.”Banner image caption: Members of the Cofán community of Sinangoe walk along the Aguarico River as a backhoe removes land in the background.

It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more
