Parliament urged to rejected draconian Internet bill

first_img TurkeyEurope – Central Asia January 18, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Parliament urged to rejected draconian Internet bill to go further Organisation TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit News Help by sharing this information April 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about an Internet bill that is to be debated by the Turkish parliament in Ankara in the coming days. Registered by a ruling AKP member in mid-December as proposed amendments to Law 5651 on the Internet, it would allow website blocking without a court order and mass surveillance of Internet users.Reporters Without Borders urges parliamentarians to reject this draconian bill and joins those who are calling for demonstrations against it throughout Turkey today.“Law 5651 need overhauling to remove its repressive features and to guarantee respect for freedom of information but parliament is unfortunately moving in the opposite direction,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The bill it is about to consider aims solely to reinforce cyber-censorship, government control of the Internet and surveillance of the public.“Its adoption would be fraught with consequences for the fundamental freedoms of Internet users and the Turkish digital economy. We urge parliamentarians to revise this bill completely in consultation with civil society and taking account of the European Court of Human Rights’ criticism of current legislation.“This bill is all the more disturbing for seeming to be an integral component of a series of draconian statements and initiatives by the authorities in recent months. In the face of unparalleled protests starting last summer and now ensnared in corruption scandals of unprecedented scale, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government should realize that its salvation does not lie in more censorship.”In a May 2011 report, United Nations special rapporteur for freedom of opinion and expression Frank La Rue said the flow of information via the Internet should be restricted only “in few, exceptional, and limited circumstances prescribed by international human rights law.”Calls for protests at 6 p.m. today under the watchwords of “Hands off my Internet” and “Stop censorship” (#sansürüDurdur) are circulating in the media and on social networks. Demonstrations are scheduled in at least nine cities – Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Antalya, Balikesir, Mersin, Antakya, Bursa and Eskisehir. Extensive blocking without a court orderThe High Council for Telecommunications (TIB) is already allowed to order the blocking of websites without a court order in cases of paedophile content, suicide advocacy and “other obscene” content. But under the proposed law, it would also be able to block without a court order in cases of “violation of privacy,” content that is “discriminatory or insulting towards certain members of society” and to protect the family and children. The Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication would also be able to order blocking.The lack of any need for a court order and the vagueness of the blocking criteria could lead to mass censorship, especially as many websites are already arbitrarily blocked in Turkey. Analysts say the provisions could be applied to criticism of religion or public figures, or could be used to block satirical sites such as Eksi Sözlük and Zaytung without giving Internet users any chance to defend their right to visit these sites.The bill reduces the delay before execution of blocking decisions from 72 hours to 24 hours. “In emergency cases,” the head of the TIB would be able to move immediately and unilaterally to block websites within four hours. Anyone who thinks content is “violating their privacy” would also be able to contact Internet Service Providers (ISPs) directly to get it blocked within four hours.Appealing against blocking would only be possible after the event. Blocking ordered by prosecutors would not need subsequent confirmation by a judge and could be extended by the prosecutors themselves.Filtering methods would be extended. It would be possible to block content by URL and IP address, and not just by domain name. Keyword filtering is also mentioned. Circumventing censorship by use of proxies or DNS resetting would be impossible.Bringing ISPs into lineThe bill would bring the entire Turkish Internet under the TIB’s direct authority. Enshrined as the Internet’s supreme entity, the TIB would enjoy complete impunity. No judicial investigation could be initiated against a TIB employee without the TIB president’s permission. No decision by the TIB president could be questioned without the communication ministry’s permission.Internet access providers would be brought under a new body that would centralize blocking requests and content removal. This Union of Access Providers would probably function as an additional government tool for controlling ISPs and other technical intermediaries, which would face closure if they did not become members and install the required surveillance devices.The penalties for failing to comply with censorship orders would also increase. Hosting companies that did not immediately execute a content withdrawal order could be fined 10,000 to 100,000 Turkish pounds (3,300 to 33,000 Euros). The possibility of prison sentences for access providers that failed to block sites was raised during debate in parliamentary commission.This provision would directly violate Special Rapporteur La Rue’s position that: “Holding intermediaries liable for the content disseminated or created by their users severely undermines the enjoyment of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, because it leads to self-protective and over-broad private censorship, often without transparency and the due process of the law.”Data retention dangerThe bill would require ISPs to keep users’ Internet connection records for between one and two years and to surrender them to the relevant authorities on request. Concern is all the greater because the bill does not specify what data must be handed over or what use would be made of it. Experts say it would include the history of visited websites and social networks, searches, IP addresses and even email subject lines.Posted content would also be subject to constant keyword surveillance. In so doing, the TIB would not limit itself to looking for crimes but would also act to “protect the family and children.” It is not yet known how this would affect websites.Turkey has for years been classified by Reporters Without Borders as a country “under surveillance” because of its cyber-censorship policies. It is ranked 154th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. center_img News Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law News April 28, 2021 Find out more April 2, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Turkey Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor RSF_en last_img read more

EXCLUSIVE: Lettuce’s Adam Deitch Writes Ode To Foundation Of Funk: “Foundation Of Funk Can Save The World”

first_img[Video: Jessica Anne]Seconds into the first tune, the crowd was swaying and moving like they had been put under a spell to the most iconic grooves known to mankind. Zigaboo Modeliste—the King of the funky drums, master of mixing funky parade rhythms, soul, funk, and rock beats into a gumbo of his own—was like an ocean current of great-feeling funky grooves, which feel so good that it’s easy to dance and lose yourself to the music. His singing and occasional hoots and screams kept the band and crowd locked in and feeling great.His partner in crime, George Porter’s bass playing perfectly rhythmically fit with Zig’s drum beats in a way that can never be duplicated and has been nurtured through their years of performing and recording since the early 1960s. The two of them are a force of nature that create a feeling of togetherness and soul that has almost a medicinal effect on human beings—true doctors of NOLA funk that were sent to heal the listeners through their music.Ivan Neville, son of famed singer Aaron Neville, is a true legend of his own, having worked with Keith Richards’ band the X-Pensive Winos. His organ and clavinet playing is gutbucket funk at its finest, and his raspy singing voice embodies the grit and soul of New Orleans like no other. His connection with the band, and especially the audience, is so natural and at ease. (Ivan always looks around to see who is hanging side stage and backstage, and who’s in the crowd while giving smiles and nods of funky approval to those he recognizes.)Tony Hall, multi-talented funk master of bass and guitar, was on duty as the lead guitarist and singer alongside rhythm specialist and young Jedi of guitar, son of Art “Poppa Funk” Neville, Ian Neville. The two locked into the kind of guitar playing that I love, where their sound becomes percussion instruments that perfectly intertwine with the bass and drums, making the songs feel like they are rolling into funky bliss. Their playing echoed the stylings created by the master Leo Nocentelli of The Meters while having elements of P-Funk guitarists like Blackbyrd McKnight and Eddie Hazel.By the time Cyril Neville was asked to join on percussion and lead vocals, the crowd was in a funky fervor, and the vibe reached even new heights! Cyril, known not only for his timeless voice and percussion skills but his outspoken views on racism and his dedication to the upliftment of the oppressed, shined in a way that only he can. We danced and sang along to his words and melodies as the show built to a climax.I went backstage and greeted each member post show in the dressing room (of course, leaving them about 15 minutes to get settled). Zigaboo asked about my drumming parents and sent love to my family. George was his usual amazing, upbeat self as he sat in a chair fielding questions and hanging with some people. Ian and Tony reminded me to put them on the VIP list for the Lett show later that night, which my response was, “Of course!” Ivan, his usual cool self, confidently walked off to catch a ride to his hotel, knowing full well that their set was “Rollin’” like a Mack truck down a steep race track.Lettuce – High Sierra Music Festival 2018 [Video: Jessica Anne]With those deep frequencies still bouncing around in my body and mind, I ventured over to the late-night stage and met my boys before our show. I briefly explained how phenomenal our heroes and friends had played. Needless to say, I had one of the most fun shows ever, completely under the spell of what had transpired previously. Foundation of Funk can save the world, one funky beat at a time.Setlist: Foundation of Funk | High Sierra Music Festival | Quincy, CA | 7/8/2018Set: Here Come The Metermen, Looka Py Py, Africa, Hey Pockey A-way, Pungee, Cissy Strut, Cabbage Alley, I Need More Time, Ain’t No Use, Keep On Marchin’, The Dragon, Just Kissed My Baby, Funky Miracle, No More Okey Doke, Come Together, Be My Lady The World (Doodle-Oop), People SayEncore: Change/ReformAt the fourth-annual Brooklyn Comes Alive, both Adam Deitch and The Meters’ George Porter Jr. will be on hand Brooklyn Comes Alive will return to Brooklyn’s beloved Williamsburg neighborhood on September 29th for an all-day music marathon at Brooklyn Bowl, Music Hall of Williamsburg, and Rough Trade. Inspired by the vibrant musical communities of Brooklyn and New Orleans, Brooklyn Comes Alive brings together more than 50 artists, allowing them to carry out passion projects, play with their musical heroes, and collaborate in never-before-seen formations. For more information, ticketing, and to see the full list of performers scheduled for Brooklyn Comes Alive 2018, head to the festival’s website here.Brooklyn Comes Alive is sponsored by Denver-based company, Pure CBD Exchange, which creates and sells a number of CBD/cannabidiol products (What is CBD?) from concentrates, tinctures, extracts, lotions, creams, and more. The use of CBD has gained much notoriety as of late, for use as both a health and wellness supplement and to treat conditions such as epilepsy, PTSD, cancer, and a number of mental disorders and is also used for anti-inflammation, nausea reduction, sleep aid, and more. Pure CBD Exchange was co-founded by Gregg Allman Band organist/keyboardist and Brooklyn Comes Alive musician Peter Levin back in 2017.Pure CBD Exchange focuses on low-THC cannabis products with high CBD content. They work within the Colorado Industrial Hemp pilot program to distribute non-psychoactive tinctures, extracts, lotions, and more all over the world. The company has featured by companies like VICE, High Times, Leafly, and more. I have had the honor of performing at countless music festivals throughout the years with my bands, Lettuce and Break Science, as well as with Pretty Lights and the John Scofield band. I can safely say that High Sierra Music Festival is a beautiful festival. The grounds are clean and pristine. The food vendors have lots of healthy eats like acai smoothies, avocado toast with greens, Spanish-style paella, and Ghanian food. The bathrooms are clean, and the campgrounds, as well as the late-night kickball games, are on point. The people who attend are kind and respectful and form a family atmosphere.This year, I spent a few hours during the day at a nearby lake surrounded by nature and friends, which set the tone for the night. Perfectly timed before my late-night Lettuce set was one of the funkiest bands I’ve ever seen. Led by legends George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo Modeliste of The Meters and joined by Dumpstaphunk members Ivan and Ian Neville and Tony Hall as well as Cyril Neville of the Neville Brothers, Foundation of Funk took the stage with the kind of confidence and ease you would expect from such tried and true masters of the art of New Orleans funk music.Foundation Of Funk – High Sierra Music Festival 2018last_img read more
