'Do you think Bill Gates, the world’s most successful entrepreneur, needed to hear the news that “profits are good”? One doubts it. He might, however, have wondered at Abbott when he spoke about a “moral order” based on people learning “to honour their agreements and live in justice and charity with their neighbours”. Charity? When Gates, the world’s biggest charitable giver, was in Australia in 2013, he lobbied for this rich country to increase its aid program to meet international benchmarks. Instead he has seen the Abbott government slash $650 million from this year’s aid budget. As for honouring agreements, Antonio Guterres, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, another Davos attendee, might well have wondered at how that sits with the Australian government’s apparent contempt for the refugee convention.'
Backgrounder — Canada’s Fast and Fair Asylum System – One Year Later One year after the government reformed Canada’s asylum system to provide faster and fairer protection to genuine refugees fleeing persecution, the results support the goals. Genuine refugees are getting the protection they need sooner. Failed asylum claimants with unfounded claims are being removed more quickly. And Canadian taxpayers’ generosity is no longer being abused. The system is grounded in the Designated Country of Origin (DCO), or safe country, list. Claims from safe countries – countries that generally do not produce refugees, respect human rights and offer state protections – are processed on an accelerated basis. Many developed democracies use a similar authority to accelerate asylum procedures for the nationals of countries not normally known to produce refugees. These states include the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Belgium and Finland. Antonio Guterres, Unite ...
Sofia, Bulgaria Syrian refugees face appalling conditions in Bulgarian refugee detention centres. About 10,000 migrants, mostly from Syria but also from Afghanistan and Iraq, have arrived in Bulgaria from Turkey since January 2013 generally using hidden routes to cross the border. In Sofia and Harmanli in the Bulgarian province of Haskovo, activists and medical teams have witnessed appalling conditions in refugees camps and a disastrous lack of medical assistance for refugees. A protest occurred on December in the camp of Vrazhdebna, Bulgaria, where UN refugee chief Antonio Guterres was blocked by over 100 refugees when he wanted to leave the courtyard. After 7 days, the Ministery of Interior admitted an unrest at the detention center in Lyubimetz. Several people had started a protest against the discrimination by the police in the camp. After a fight, one refugee had a skull fracture, others had arm fractures. Refugees in the detention center started a hunger strike in solidarity with the protesting peop ...

U.N. launches record appeal to cover Syria crisis The United Nations warned on Friday that half of all Syrians will need humanitarian aid by the end of 2013 and launched what it said was the largest emergency appeal in history to cope with the civil war crisis. "Syria as a civilization is unraveling," said the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, announcing the call for some $5 billion before the end of the year. The joint statement by U.N. agencies coincided with heavy fighting on numerous fronts, as rebels attacked an air base in northern Syria while forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad sought to capitalize on their own recent gains. Clashes also continued on the Golan Heights, close to the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria, a day after rebels briefly seized the sole crossing between the two foes. Austria, a major contributor to a U.N. monitoring mission in the Golan, announced on Thursday it was withdrawing from the area because of the violence, jeopardizing an operation th ...

Myanmar's Muslims are slaughtered as world remains silent and country's criminal president calls for their expulsion In the first days of the blessed month of Ramadan, and after six successive weeks of the genocide and ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Myanmar, including the systematic operations of slaughtering and expulsion, in the face of treacherous international silence and in the deliberate absence of the Arab and international media, the scene looked like a worldwide collusion against the Muslims of Myanmar, rather it looked like a conspiracy to annihilate their presence there. Even the statements of Amnesty International which were published yesterday Thursday (19/7/2012) regarding what is happening attracted no media coverage! After this bloody and outrageous criminality, which killed more than 2,000 Muslims and displaced more than 90,000 of them, Myanmar's murderous president, Thein Sein, during his meeting with the UN High Commissioner for refugees, Antonio Guterres on July 11th, wanted to assembl ...

Myanmar president asks UN to look after "illegal" Rohingyas News Date: 12th July 2012 Myanmar asked the United Nations to place 750,000 stateless Muslims in refugee camps, its president's website said Thursday. Members of the Rohingya ethnic group are refused citizenship by Myanmar's government, which considers the Muslims of Bengali descent as illegal immigrants from neighbouring Bangladesh, even if they have lived in Myanmar for generations. "It is totally impossible to accept illegal Rohingyas," President Thein Sein told visiting UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Antonio Guterres on Wednesday, according to the website. "The last solution on this issue is to hand over Rohingyas to UNHCR to set up refugee camps," Thein Sein was quoted as saying. "Then, the UNHCR should look after them." "If a third country wants to accept them, we will send them," he said. It was not clear whether Thein Sein, a reform-minded former general who took office in March last year, was considering allowing the UNHCR to ...
