21 Nov 11 Police Beat Protesters at OccupyCal

Yesterday, students, professors, and other supporters of the Occupy movement gathered at UC Berekeley’s plaza to join in OccupyCal. The university had told protesters they could stay around the clock for a week, only if they didn’t pitch tents, use stoves, or any other items that might suggest people would be sleeping there. The OccupyCal group voted not to comply with the demand and continued to peacefully set up a tent site. But then police used force, to get them to go and made arrests.

21 Nov 11 JOKHANG Tibet

Smoke from numerous sacrificial stoves fill the streets and squares of the Tibetan capital of Lhasa in the Trans-Himalayan Mountains. This City Of The Gods well deserves its lofty reputation. Its not only the political, cultural and economic centre of Tibet, it also has a religious heart. Barkhor Road is 800 metres long and encircles the Jokhang Temple, as well as nearby Tsuklakhang Square. The aroma of juniper rises from the sacrificial stoves placed along the sacred road. Traditional prayer flags billow in the breeze. Jokhang Temple has a mystic atmosphere and contains many images of daily religious life in Lhasa and was built as a shrine for a unique Buddha statue. The temple is still, more than 1300 years after its foundation, a much worshipped national sanctuary as well as a vibrant centre of Buddhism in Tibet and the revered home of the Dalai Lama.

Wide-scale forest destruction causes damage from flooding and disrupts the country’s water supply because the region acts as a watershed. Over 14 years ago, the Aga Khan Planning and Building Service (AKPBS) began a concerted drive to make homes in North Pakistan warmer, and reduce the use of wood. Based on the Aga Khan’s belief that: “A proper home can bridge that terrible gap between poverty and a better future” the programme is doing just that for over 240000 people. Today over 100 ‘resource people’ work in their own villages promoting energy efficient products. A US package could include floor insulation, an efficient cook stove with a chimney to let smoke out, a water heater, and a roof hatch window that cuts out draughts and lets in light, also fresh air when needed. AKPBS trains local people as artisans and entrepreneurs and has created over 360 new jobs. Over 50000 products have been sold through word of mouth, tours and demonstration homes.
