Child labour

aware_00015– Global number of children in child labour has declined by one third since 2000, from 246 million to 168 million children. More than half of them, 85 million, are in hazardous work (down from 171 million in 2000).

– Asia and the Pacific still has the largest numbers (almost 78 million or 9.3% of child population), but Sub-Saharan Africa continues to be the region with the highest incidence of child labour (59 million, over 21%).

– There are 13 million (8.8%) of children in child labour in Latin America and the Caribbean and in the Middle East and North Africa there are 9.2 million (8.4%).

– Agriculture remains by far the most important sector where child labourers can be found (98 million, or 59%), but the problems are not negligible in services (54 million) and industry (12 million) – mostly in the informal economy.

– Child labour among girls fell by 40% since 2000, compared to 25% for boys.

That old skeptism

This is the Europe I don’t want to be part of. This is not about Greece, Finland or UK; this is about me. I don’t want to be part of this Europe and I don’t care how this will influence the London stock market tomorrow or the French exchange market next week.
But for that now I have to face a new situation that serves the bankers, the EU bureaucracy and establishment and of course the radicals. Even though I am the one who doubts and requires a well-supported by evidence opposition that could persuade me that I’m wrong and what I see is the continuity of the EU fundamentals, I cannot be a sceptic. Because the word sceptic is used the last decade and more, to semantically veil all the ones who oppose the existence of the Union due to their nationalistic, chauvinistic, fascist, Nazi, racist, isolator, xenophobic and other similar ideologies.

BRIDGES

cover00About time and it took a lot of Bridges to build this issue. Funny, when you start talking about Bridges, you find out that there are more and more ways you can apply the word. Architectural bridges, geographical, philosophical, sentimental, cultural, linguistic. Solid and airy. They are all there.

Not that we covered everything in this thematic issue. We barely bridged the gap. But we did try. And ironically in the case of Bridges, that this issue motivates the reader to think and discover more bridges might be the case.

And favouring Bridges, this issue of the Ovi thematic magazine has two sections, one all about Bridges and one with a selection of Ovi articles from the last month.

For this issue we thank the following members of the Ovi family, the names are in the series you will find their contribution in this issue.

Thanos Raftopoulos, Dr. Anis H. Bajrektarevic, Prof. Emanuel L. Paparella, Edna Nelson, Dr. Ernesto Paolozzi, Murray Hunter,  Kittirat Yothangrong, Leah Sellers, Abigail George, MBa, Nikos Laios, Tony Zuvela

Golden Dawn murders a young musician

Ovi Magazine CoverIt has been prologue for long and here in Ovi magazine we have often talked and warned about these parasite criminals. Golden Dawn troops, the imitation of the Nazi nightmare, have abused and killed a 34 years-old musician.

“A 34-year-old man died in the early hours of Wednesday morning after he was attacked by neo-Nazi and subsequently stabbed in Piraeus. The victim has been named as Pavlos Fyssas, a hip-hopper involved in the antifascist scene.  He was stabbed in the chest outside a café at 60 Panayi Tsaldari Avenue in Amfiali, in the Keratsini district of Piraeus, shortly after midnight by a group of neo-Nazi dressed in black and camouflage uniforms.

“He was taken to Tzanio hospital, where he died shortly afterwards. Before he died, he managed to identify the perpetrator and his accomplices, according to reports.  Fyssas was a hip-hop performer who went by the stage name of Killah P. He was involved in organising concerts against fascism and other social activities in the area where he lived.

“At the time of the attack, he was with his partner and two friends at the cafe. Shortly after midnight, a group of young men wearing black sweatshirts and camouflage trousers confronted the group in the café and a scuffle ensued. Fyssas and his three friends initially managed to escape their attackers, but as they ran down the street, a car blocked their way. The driver got off the car and stabbed the 34 year old at least three times on the footpath. The perpetrator then fled on foot with his accomplices.

Noted that according to witnesses there were policemen around but nobody did anything to stop the murder and if it wasn’t a policewoman who acted and arrested the murderer nobody would have been arrested.

Golden Dawn, this group of criminals and murderers that has enter Greek political life and Greek parliament is not an internal Greek issue but a global problem that must be dealt as it is, a criminal organization that must be stopped NOW!
