Manipur, like other states in Northeast India, has historically been subject to gross negligence and abuse at the hands of national authorities; an unresolved and ongoing problem. Violent repression of protesters is a commonplace occurrence.

A shepherd with his flock on Gouraye road, Mauritania

Taken on 2016-04-11

Remote and vast area of southern Mauritania, Guidimakha has been for a long time confronted with chronic poverty and high food insecurity levels. Lack of rain, shortfalls in agricultural production and difficult access to essential food items, have led to an extreme vulnerability of populations. In addition, the region is deeply afflicted by chronic malnutrition, with rates exceeding the thresholds set by the World Health Organisation. In response to this situation, the European Commission Humanitarian Department (ECHO) and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) are jointly supporting organizations such as Action Against Hunger (AAH), in the implementation of a project devoted to prevent, treat and reduce acute malnutrition. Nutritional and medical follow-up, information on good health and nutrition practices, are accessible for more than 45 000 children aged 6 to 59 months, nearly 65 000 women of childbearing age and 4,670 pregnant and lactating women. Awareness-raising activities are carried out, through community agents, but also through theatre groups. Moreover, all Guidimakha health structures are benefitting from the deployment of personnel to support on-site medical staff, as well as trainings to continuously improve the children’s follow-up, all with the aim of making the fight against malnutrition more effective.

Peace March in Homage to Student Rohith Vemula; India, Feb 2016

Peace March in Homage to Student Rohith Vemula; India, Feb 2016

Taken on 2016-02-17

Translated from french: "Peaceful march of JNU students in homage to Rohith Vemula, PhD student at the University of Hyderabad. He committed suicide on 17 January after suffering from discrimination due to his low caste and after being expelled from his university for carrying out political activities in favour of untouchables. Hundreds of policemen turned up to handle the sixty-or-so students. The police chased the students and 'captured' them, often violently, with a ratio of 3 to 5 policemen for a single person, sometimes dragging them to the ground... I do not have photos of this stage because I, too, was busy running away. All the people were then put in buses which had already been summoned for this action and then taken to the police station for a day of detention. Long live the liberty of expression! (Vive la liberté d'expression!)" -Anouch Carracilly (photographer) The central government of India, which is led by the BJP, has led a massive crackdown on students at Delhi's prestigious Jawarhal Nehru University (JNU) over the last few days. Policemen and even politicians have beaten up students and arrested them at random and with no legal justification for the same. The BJP was enraged at the criticism levelled against its policies by the students of the university during a peaceful discussion on their campus.
