Srebrenica Anniversary Burial; Srebrenica Bosnia, July 2016

Taken on 2016-07-11

This picture was taken on the commemoration of the Srebrenica massacre in the Potocari cemetery in Bosnia-Herzegovina. After the religious celebration, various burials were organized in the cemetery for recently found victim remains. The Srebrenica anniversary and the events surrounding this commemoration have become quite controversial events in the politics of Bosnia. The anniversary itself brings together members of the Bosniak and Bosnian Muslim community to mourn, remember and advocate for the victims of the events of July 11th, 1995. Yet the commemoration tends to be contested by politicians and members of other ethnic groups, showing the social divisions in the country.

This is a monument done by a social movement called AntiDayton who insist that the creation of Republika Srpska (RS), one of the two political and administrative entities forming Bosnia-Herzegovina, is a product of ethnic cleansing in the 92 to 95 war. The monument is established as a map of RS and within it are objects that belong to victims of the Srebrenica massacre.

Delhi Police attacked students from the Northeast Indian state of Manipur in a lathi-charge (with sticks) at the Manipur Bhavan in New Delhi. The students were protesting against Inner Line Permit (ILP) related bills in Manipur which restrict mobility in certain parts of the country. 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.

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

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.

Apartheid in South Africa - UN Archive Photos; South Africa, 1960's - 1980's

Apartheid in South Africa - UN Archive Photos; South Africa, 1960's - 1980's

"Apartheid became the official policy of the Government of South Africa in 1948, following the election of the Herenigde Nasionale Party, later renamed the National Party. Under this policy, racial discrimination was institutionalized. The lives of the Africans, who made up almost 75 per cent of the population, were controlled by the unjust segregation laws from birth to the grave. They were proscribed where to live, who to marry and the type of education they would receive in the country of their birth. Since the founding of the African National Congress (ANC) in 1912, the Africans waged the struggle against the unjust racist laws of South Africa. Their resistance ushered a new era on the morning of 21 March 1960, when thousands of Africans gathered peacefully in locations around the country, including in Sharpeville where up to 20,000 marched to the police station against the pass laws. The police opened fire on them, killing 67 people and wounding 186 others, including 40 women and 8 children. More than 80 per cent of them were shot in the back while fleeing. During the declaration of the state of emergency in 1960, which continued intermittently for nearly 30 years, anyone could be detained without a hearing by a low-level police official for up to six months. Thousands of individuals died in custody, frequently after gruesome acts of torture. Those who were tried were sentenced to death, banished, or imprisoned for life, as was the case with the world's most famous prisoner, Nelson Mandela. The issue of the policies of apartheid of the Government of South Africa remained on the agenda of the United Nations for almost fifty years. After numerous efforts of urging the Government of that country to abandon its policies - declared a crime against humanity - the international campaign reached a watershed in 1989. That year, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a Declaration on Apartheid and its Destructive Consequences in Southern Africa, paving the way for the holding of the April 1994 historic and first-ever democratic elections in South Africa. The United Nations Photo Library (http://www.un.org/av/photo/) holds a collection of approximately 800,000 photographs dating back to the mid-1940s chronicling the history of the Organization and its work. The collection includes coverage of historic UN meetings and events, as well as a wide array of field coverage from its earliest days." https://www.flickr.com/photos/un_photo/albums/72157614394196
