We are attaching this joint appeal and a poem written by Quan in the prison where he is currently held.Vietnam is ranked 174th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, one place lower than in 2013.

Signed by more than 32,000 people, it calls for the release of the 35 bloggers currently detained in Vietnam.“The government’s complete refusal to start a dialogue with Reporters Without Borders is in reality a sign of contempt towards the petition’s 32,000 signatories, many of whom are residents of Vietnam,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“Like Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung last September, the response that the culture minister gave to the demands we were carrying was a distressing silence. The situation of freedom of information and those who try to use it in Vietnam is worsening steadily. “The latest evidence of this includes a violent attack on Huynh Ngoc Tuan, the blogger Huynh Thuc Vy’s father, and the refusal to release Bui Thi Minh Hang. The government lied shamelessly during Vietnam’s Universal Periodic Review by the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on 5 February, so we will redouble our efforts to apply pressure.”As the culture minister was signing an accord on broadcasting cooperation with his French counterpart yesterday, more than a dozen Reporters Without Borders members waved posters from a campaign launched in 2012 to draw the attention of French tourists to the lack of freedom of information in Vietnam, and chanted calls in French and English for the release of all of Vietnam’s detained bloggers. They also unsuccessfully requested a meeting with the Vietnamese minister.The names of two Reporters Without Borders journalists who had previously registered their intention to attend the press conference with the National Audiovisual Institute were removed from the list by the French culture ministry’s press department on the grounds that the room was too small and was being repaired. to go further Related documents Press release Le Quoc QuanPDF – 414.39 KBLe Quoc Quan’s poem and messagePDF – 7.54 KB News To support the Vietnamese bloggers, click here.

Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Linkedin WhatsApp TAGSGardaílimerickmobile phoneOperation Handsfree Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live NewsLimerick Gardaí team up with mobile phone suppliers to cut road deathsBy Staff Reporter – September 19, 2016 595 Phone suppliers and Gardai are urging Limerick motorists to “go handsfree”WITH almost 2,000 drivers found using mobile phones in Limerick during the first eight months of the year, the message from An Garda Siochana is clear, “put the phone down while driving – it could cost you your life”.Operation Handsfree was launched in Limerick on Monday as a joint initiative involving Gardaí and local mobile phone businesses who are introducing special offers to encourage drivers to purchase handsfree kits and to stop holding phones while driving.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Inspector Paul Reidy of the Limerick Divisional Traffic Corp said that the aim of the initiative is to reduce fatalities on the road and the number of serious collisions.“Unfortunately we are at ten fatalities on Limerick roads so far this year while last year there were four for the entire 12 months. We are very concerned about that and we want to do everything we can about that’” he said.From Monday, September 19 to October 1, associated local businesses will be running special offers on handsfree kits for drivers to install and use in their cars.“We want to encourage people to avail of the offers and to cease the practice of holding a phone while driving” Inspector Reidy said after he said that 1,996 people have been detected committing the offence so far in 2016.Chief Superintendent Dave Sheahan said that the Limerick divisional traffic corp had “carried out a number of blitz detections and were catching 40 or 50 people using their mobiles while driving.“That should not be part of our job. We want to get the message across but, for some reason, it is not getting out there.“The aim of the initiative introduced by Inspector Reidy and local mobile phone business affiliated to Limerick Chamber is to create awareness rather than having people getting caught.“We want people to have the information. It is important to convince people that the idea of using a mobile phone while driving is a non-runner and everyone knows how dangerous it is but yet people still try to do it.“If you look at some of the hard hitting advertisements on radio and television that are out there now, it’s hard to understand why the message isn’t getting through” Supt Sheahan said.“I know in my house some people turn the television off because the advertisements are so graphic and hard hitting. What we are trying to do with this initiative is to try and create that extra awareness. We are not out there to try and catch people using their mobile phone. We are out there trying to save their lives.

The 22-year-old, who qualifies via his maternal grandmother, was handed a first senior call-up for Wednesday night’s friendly in Cyprus and is thrilled to be given a chance on the international stage. He started his career at Southampton’s renowned academy, where he was a year above England and Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but dropped down to Sky Bet League One when he was released by the Saints. Press Association Reeves has taken well to the task, scoring 10 times this season from midfield and catching the eye of Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill in the process. “My nan is from Fermanagh and a lot of my Mum’s side still live over there, so I always knew it was a chance for me to play for Northern Ireland,” he told Press Association Sport. “I was ecstatic when I got the call, so was my family and everyone at home too. “It would be unbelievable to play international football; it’s an incredible opportunity and it would be an honour to represent Northern Ireland.” Ironically, Reeves’ new international captain, Steven Davis, is one of the men who forced him out of St Mary’s when he was signed to bolster the club’s Premier League credentials in 2012. Reeves holds no grudges on that front, though, and is hoping his week away with the likes of Davis and Chris Brunt can help him become a better player. “I trained with ‘Davo’ a lot at Southampton and it’s good to know someone when you’re coming into a squad and meeting a lot of new people,” he said. “He’s an easy guy to get on with, everyone likes Steven. You can always improve and training with these players can only help. “Working with guys from different styles and different cultures is good, especially when they’re international players. “You need to learn from them and then take it back with you and improve.” MK Dons midfielder Ben Reeves is eager to make the most of his “incredible opportunity” with Northern Ireland.
