Palestine at the ONNA Art Exhibition in Vienna

Auf Deutsch

I had wonderful evening at the opening of ONNA art exhibition in Vienna. Several artists women from Asian and African background among them Palestine have presented their works of art that reflect their nature of being women.

The exhibition was arranged perfectly by Austrian artist Sylvia Kummer in coordination with Professor of art Alfred Grasille.

Sharing 8 pictures of my artistic work from the occupied Palestine with a very diverse and high level audience among them a representative of the 16th district chief Franz Brokob at ONNA exhibition was an experience of great value!

I enormously enjoyed the the opening of the exhibition as well the conversations with the visitors and fellow artists from Austria, Japan, China, Palestine, Uganda, Iran and Bangladesh. I already got invited to exhibit my work from Palestine at other galleries and an exhibition in Austria.

Most importantly, the exhibition was very organized, and the opening was interesting. Vivvien Lee and Johann Sebastian Bach played a great musical link.

Palestine has presented 8 artistic pictures show the inhuman face of the Israeli occupation in Palestine.

Respect: Stronger Together: Vienna launches major prevention program

Good education, means a prosperous and good future, civilization of people and nation.
The city of Vienna, which named world’s top city for quality of life, attaches great importance to the quality education sector.
The mayor of Vienna, Dr. Michael Ludwig and the Greens leader and municipal council Birgit Hebein announced in a press conference held on Tuesday launches a major prevention program for Vienna’s schools with special challenges. The development of the program will be accompanied by independent integration expert Kenan Güngör.

Behind the program “Respect: Stronger Together Stronger” is the idea to conclude a common alliance for respect between teachers, pupils and parents. This is intended to meet the challenges of everyday school life: devaluation based on gender, origin, sexual orientation, religion or belief, prejudice, bullying, tensions and conflicts in the classroom, experience of discrimination or hatred in the net.

The aim is to link youth and integration work as well as women’s and girls’ promotion more closely with the school in a permanent and cross-administrative program. Thus, the city sets the same educational as well as integration and women’s political accents.

The aim is to strengthen girls and boys in a targeted manner, to support educators in dealing with the manifold problems of young people and to involve parents as central educational partners. The program is therefore aimed at all school partners with target group-specific offers and is carried out in schools with high social challenges.

The program is being developed under the responsibility of the City Councilor for Education Jürgen Czernohorszky and Women’s Councilor Kathrin Gaal with the Child and Youth Services (MA 11), the Youth Department (MA 13), the Integration Department (MA 17), the Women’s Service Vienna (MA 57) and the Education Directorate will be tested, evaluated and rolled out during the 2019/20/20 school year in New Middle Schools and Polytechnic Schools in a pilot phase.

Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action

My report on Verification and monitoring in the Islamic Republic of Iran in light of United Nations Security Council resolution 2231 (2015) covers relevant activities of the Agency in that country in the last few months. said IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano in his speech delivered to the Board of Governors.

Amano added: “Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. It is essential that Iran continues to fully implement those commitments.”

The Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of nuclear material declared by Iran under its Safeguards Agreement. Evaluations regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran continue.

In implementing verification activities in Iran, the Agency analyses all safeguards-relevant information, which normally takes time, and takes action when appropriate. The Agency undertakes analysis and takes action in an impartial, independent and objective manner, within the existing safeguards framework and in line with established safeguards practice.

Nuclear Verification

Conclusion of Safeguards Agreements and Additional Protocols

Since my last report, a comprehensive safeguards agreement, a small quantities protocol and an additional protocol have entered into force for Liberia. Malaysia has rescinded its small quantities protocol. Papua New Guinea has amended its small quantities protocol. In addition, France amended its small quantities protocol to the safeguards agreement between France, EURATOM and the Agency under the Treaty of Tlatelolco.

The number of States with safeguards agreements in force now stands at 183, while 134 States have brought additional protocols into force.

I ask States Parties to the Board of Governors without comprehensive safeguards agreements in force to bring such agreements into force without delay. I hope that States which have not yet concluded additional protocols will do so as soon as possible. I also call on States with small quantities protocols based on the old standard text to amend or rescind them.

Lacina and the memories of the Danube

Seven years ago, I met Austrian musician Herbert Lacina while running on the beautiful banks of the Danube.

We talked to each other for the first time when I stood enjoying the sunset view on the Danube, we ate an orange. Since then we know each other.

Quite simply a musician and a journalist met on the Danube, and then became friends at work.

A good equation has basic rules not only in music and journalism but also in the science of equivalence and calculation in the life.

Mr. Lacina is Austrian born in 1954 in Vienna.
He introduced himself in short, concise and useful sentences. 12-string base, is a jazz musician based in Vienna.
Very present in the field of jazz and improvised music. I play in several bands and orchestras.
Lacina said: “I perceive music as a stream of energy, a free form without any limitations.”

Lacina is a member of the SFIEMA (Society for Free Improvisation and Experimental Music Austria), an active member of the Kunstraum Ewigkeitsgasse with his own concert series and also a member of the IG Visual arts.

He often plays concerts in the Celeste, Vienna Künstlerhaus, Porgy & Bess, Forum Stadtpark Graz, in the old blacksmiths and many other venues and also performs in the context of “Wien Modern”.

About Lacina musicial life in Vienna, he shares his fellow musicians the musical career such as Michael Fischer (Vienna Improvisers Orchestra), Reut Regev & Igal Foni, Marco Eneidi, Martin Wichtl, Simone Weissenfels, Isabel Duthoit, Yedda Lin, Ingrid Oberkanins, Andreas Eichhorn, Lieselotte lengl, Eric & Vanessa Arn, Sylvia Bruckner, Angelina Ertel, Diego Mune, Andy Menrath, Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg, Anna Anderluh, Stefan Heckel, Gloria Damijan, Mia Zabelka, Elisabeth Harnik, Claudia Cervenca and many more …

Renewed Action Against Organized Crime, Human Trafficking and Illicit Firearms Through Palermo Convention

Yury Fedotov, Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, opened the ninth session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime today, urging governments to strengthen cooperative action against shared challenges.

The opening session was also addressed by the President of Panama, Juan Carlos Varela Rodríguez, Italian Justice Minister Alfonso Bonafede and other high-level speakers.

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Palermo Convention’s entry into force and Mr. Fedotov highlighted the continuing importance of the Convention and its Protocols on human trafficking, migrant smuggling and illicit firearms trafficking in addressing urgent threats.

He said: “The international community is confronted on a daily basis by cybercrime and the online sexual exploitation and abuse of children; the use of cryptocurrencies to launder criminal proceeds; and illicit firearms trafficking supplying terrorists with deadly weapons. Maritime crime and wildlife crime are stealing away livelihoods and endangering natural resources.

“These are complex, cross-border threats with a scale and impact that could hardly have been foreseen nearly two decades ago when the Convention was signed in Palermo. And yet the Convention and its Protocols have more than stood the test of time.”

The UNODC Executive Director called for strengthening international cooperation and technical assistance through the Convention.

“Disparities in capacities and coordination enable transnational organized crime networks to evade justice. We need to close gaps and address vulnerabilities, between countries and regions as well as online, if we are to effectively address these challenges,” he said.
