Heatwave Warnings as Records Broken in Asia - 2023 Hottest year on Record

As record-breaking temperatures sear swathes of Asia, a study has revealed that climate change caused an average of 26 days of extreme heat across the world last year – the hottest year on record.

A joint report by the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, World Weather Attribution (WWA), and Climate Central found more than three quarters of the world’s population were endangered by burning heat waves in 2023, most caused by global warming – a process driven by the burning of fossil fuels, largely by high-income countries. It identified 76 extreme heat waves across 90 countries, putting 6.3 billion people at risk, in particular infants, people with health problems, and outdoor labourers.

“This report provides overwhelming scientific evidence that extreme heat is a deadly manifestation of the climate crisis,” said Aditya V. Bahadur, director of the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre. “This wreaks havoc on human health, critical infrastructure, the economy, agriculture and the environment, thereby eroding gains in human development and decreasing well-being – especially for poor and marginalised communities in the Global South.”

Crippling’ Drought in Zambia Threatens Hunger for Millions

Severe drought in Zambia is threatening hunger for millions of people, cutting off electricity for long periods and destroying the country’s social fabric and economy, the environment minister has warned, in a harbinger of what is in store for the region as the climate crisis worsens.

Collins Nzovu said the “crippling drought” his country was experiencing hammered home the message that developing countries were facing catastrophe from the climate crisis, even as richer countries failed to muster financial help for the most afflicted.

“What has happened this year is that we received well below the normal rainfall. This has been a crippling drought,” he said. “We’ve had a huge crop failure. A lot of people who depend on maize, who depend on agriculture for their very survival, face starvation and hunger.”

Knowledge is the Most Democratic Source of Power

What is knowledge as a source of power? 'Knowledge is power' means that men/women have education and a complete control on his life by using the strength of knowledge.

Knowledge means understanding of something such as facts, information, description and skills. It is the source of power to men/women and this distinguishes them from other creatures of the universe. Though men/women are physically weaker than many animals, for he/she cannot see as far as an eagle, nor carry heavy loads as some animals. Nevertheless he/she is the most powerful creature on earth. This power basically comes to him from knowledge not from physical strength. ‘Knowledge is power’ means that a men/women have education and a complete control on Their life by using the strength of knowledge.

The ability to acquire knowledge, preserve and pass it on to the future generation makes men/women powerful. It enables them to control the forces of nature and use them for their benefit. This power of knowledge, if used wisely can bring happiness to mankind. Knowledge leads to wisdom, respect and consequently power.

Why is Knowledge Powerful? Knowledge does not always come with power. Knowledge is the state of awareness or understanding and learning of specific information about something and it is gained from experience or study. This means a person has the resources to express his views dynamically and make intelligent decisions based on his every day situations, awareness and understanding.

How El Fasher Went From Darfur’s Safe Haven to All-Out War

Artillery shells are tearing through displacement camps and crashing through residential homes. Food and medical supplies are rapidly running out. People are fleeing communities without even being able to bury the bodies of their loved ones.

This is the current situation in El Fasher, one of Darfur's largest cities and the latest epicentre of the year-long war between Sudan’s army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces – a war that has already displaced some nine million people and left vast numbers on the brink of famine.

UN officials have called the situation in El Fasher “Hell on Earth” and are warning that genocide crimes may be committed. Daily interviews that I am doing with friends and human rights monitors in El Fasher suggest that neither claim is an understatement.

IMB: Widespread Concerns Over Safety Of Immigration Removal Centres

As the report notes, the number of people in immigration detention at the end of 2023 was 54% higher than at the end of 2022, with a significant contributing factor being time-served foreign national offenders released from prisons into IRCs as part of the Government's operation to ease prison overcrowding.

The IMB says that throughout 2023, too many people remained detained across the IRC estate after their release or bail had been authorised, some for many months, mostly due to considerable delays in securing or approving accommodation.

Concerns are also raised over the continued detention of vulnerable migrants. The report states: "Processes to identify and safeguard people deemed vulnerable (including those who have a serious mental health condition or have experienced trafficking or torture) were ineffective, as were mechanisms to prevent their detention in the first place. Too often during 2023, those known to be at risk of harm according to Home Office policy were nonetheless detained or kept detained for too long."

With Europe’s Support North African Nations Push Migrants into the Desert

Desert Dumps - Europe supports, finances and is directly involved in clandestine operations in North African countries to dump tens of thousands of Black people in the desert or remote areas each year to prevent them from coming to the EU.

Funds for these desert dumps have been paid under the guise of “migration management” with the EU claiming that the money doesn’t support human rights abuses against sub-Saharan African communities in North Africa. Brussels claims publicly that it closely monitors how this money is spent. But the reality is different.

In a year-long investigation with the Washington Post, Enass, Der Spiegel, El Pais, IrpiMedia, ARD, Inkyfada and Le Monde, we reveal that Europe knowingly funds, and in some instances is directly involved in systematic racial profiling detention and expulsion of Black communities across at least three North African countries.

Our findings show that in Morocco, Mauritania and Tunisia, refugees and migrant workers, some of whom were on their way towards Europe, as well as people who had legal status and established livelihoods in these countries, are apprehended based on the colour of their skin, loaded onto buses and driven to the middle of nowhere, often arid desert areas.
