Protests in Bahrain Against the Formula 1 Grand Prix; April 2015

Taken on 2015-04-16

The photos featured in this report present scenes of protesters and protester lit fires in respect to the 2015 Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix. Maryam al-Khawaja, of the Gulf Centre for Human Rights told the Guardian newspaper that “The problem is that the F1 isn’t just being used as part of that whitewash, the F1 actually causes human rights violations in Bahrain,” “Right before the race we have the government going on an arrest spree to try and prevent protest. We have protesters cracked down on during the F1 and the violence that is used is usually more than what we see for the rest of the year. F1 causes human rights violations and for that reason it should not come to Bahrain.” For the Bahraini opposition, which has been holding sustained demonstrations against the government since 2011, the Grand Prix serves as an opportunity to spread awareness of their cause around the world and the plight of political prisoners in the island kingdom.

Rohingya Refugee Rural Slum; Kutupalong, Bangladesh, Mar 2015

Taken on 2015-03-31

The Rohingya people are a Muslim minority group historically based in Rakhine state, Myanmar. The Rohingya people are considered “stateless entities”, as the Myanmar government has been refusing to recognise them as one of the ethnic groups of the country. To escape persecution and hostility, the Rohingya people have being fleeing Myanmar and Bangladesh in high numbers. From January to March in 2015, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that 25,000 people have been taken to boats by human traffickers. There are claims that around 100 people died in Indonesia, 200 in Malaysia, and 10 in Thailand (see 2015 Wiki 'Rohingya Refugee Crisis' page for more information) Featured in this photo report are scenes of Rohingya refugees settled in rural slums around the UNCHR-government run camp of Kutupalong. Unlike the refugees settled in the UNCHR camp, who are entitled to shelter, food rations, access to school and health services, the unregistered refugees in the slum are considered illegal migrants and therefore don’t have access to any government or UN services.

Protest by South Asian Labourers in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, March 2015

Protest by South Asian Labourers in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, March 2015

Taken on 2015-03-10

Hundreds of South Asian labourers took to the streets in Dubai on Tuesday to protest unpaid wages and working conditions, prompting the emirate to mobilise riot police. Local reports said the striking workers ripped down corrugated iron fences at a development belonging to Emaar Properties and even came onto the streets to block traffic near the Dubai Mall. The sight of protesting labourers is jarring in a country where demonstrations and unionising are illegal and could easily lead to deportation.

Oak Flat Copper Mining Conflict; Arizona, U.S., Feb-March 2015

Oak Flat Copper Mining Conflict; Arizona, U.S., Feb-March 2015

Taken on 2015-03-18

About 100 miles north of Tucson, Resolution Copper Mining wants to build a mine in Superior, a town of 2,800 people, that could yield 1 billion pounds of copper a year. The land Resolution wants includes the 760-acre Oak Flat Withdrawal Area, which was deemed off-limits to future mining by a 1955 land order signed by President Dwight Eisenhower. The bill would overturn that order. The mine would devastate the surface of Oak Flat, an area sacred to Apache tribes. It’s an ancestral home for several clans of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, some of whom are protesting the development.
