Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Alan Clayton Associates has announced a new seminar series that aims to help charities unite and focus on fundraising, with inspired boards, chief executives and senior management teams.The events are designed to help tackle “internal blockages”, which Clayton describes as “the greatest challenge of great fundraising”, with the aim of enabling them to grow their income significantly.At the heart of the seminars is “the Inspiration Imperative”, Clayton’s assertion that “inspiration is not a luxury, but an absolute imperative”.The new series begins with a three-hour shows held in London and Dublin in September and in Manchester and Edinburgh in December.Clayton explained:“Getting the whole organisation lined up behind fundraising is stage one of making great fundraising happen. The best leaders know that culture is everything. Inspiration, across the organisation, is what aligns the culture and allows colleagues to make the organisation more ‘fundraisable.’ The Inspiration Imperative shows fundraisers how to get the best out of the rest of the organisation so that fundraising can flourish.”He added: Advertisement “Our research and experience show that boards need three things to press the button on a huge fundraising surge: trust in the investment plan, belief in the culture and the inspiration of a big idea. It all starts with the big idea. The process of finding the big idea, inspirationally, is what aligns the culture, creates the trust and opens minds to the investment plan.”Participants will receive free resources designed to support the events and which are based on academic research, experience and real results using case studies from around the world.

The court upheld on 3 June a sentence of 26 years on Miguel Galván Gutiérrez (photo) and 16 years on José Ubaldo Izquierdo Hernández.”We greatly regret that the Cuban government refuses to listen to international protests calling for the release of the 26 journalists and the 50 other dissidents arrested at the same time”, said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.”We fear now that the sentences against the other imprisoned journalists will be confirmed too. The government is going down an increasingly repressive blind alley as shown by the heavy sentences, of up to 28 years in prison for simple offences of opinion.”Ménard also denounced new restrictions on the jailed journalists’ families, most of whom are only being allowed to visit them once every three months instead of every three weeks as the rules state. This is in addition to their transfer to prisons hundreds of kilometres from their homes, making visits difficult and expensive. The Internet website cubanet.org reported on 21 May that the wife of journalist Pedro Argüelles Morán was only told after she arrived to see him at the prison in Santa Clara (west-central Cuba) that he had been sent to another, in Combinado del Este (Havana), another 270 kms away from his home in Morón. The Russian news agency Prima News reported on 3 June that journalist Adolfo Fernández Sainz and several other jailed dissidents had begun a hunger-strike to demand their right to see their families more often. The conditions of detention of several of the journalists are very bad and at least five are reportedly ill. Reporters Without Borders said it was especially worried about Oscar Espinosa Chepe (photo), who has serious liver problems and internal bleeding, and called for his transfer to hospital in Havana. On 31 May, after strong international protests, he was taken from the prison in Guantanamo to a hospital in Santiago.His wife Miriam Leiva said this was a “farce” because health care at the hospital was no better than at the prison, where officials had not even given him the medicine she had brought for him. She called for his transfer to a Havana hospital. The appeal against his 20-year sentence was heard on 4 June and judgment was reserved.Last month, a dozen independent journalists who decided to continue their activities despite the crackdown were threatened with heavy prison sentences by security officials if they persisted.

It had been shut down on 13 October after criticising two Gulf states._____________________15.10.2003An official newspaper suspended to go further On Libyan revolution’s 10th anniversary, authorities urged to guarantee press freedom News LibyaMiddle East – North Africa October 28, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Al-Zahf Al-Akhdar reappears Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans Frontières) has asked for more information from Libya about the suspension of the official daily Al-Zahf Al-Akhdar (The Green Step).The daily was suspended by the standing revolutionary court on 13 October for having « damaged the national interest and harmed Libya’s position », AFP reported.The press freedom organisation asked for the reasons for and the length of the suspension and pointed out that the country has no independent newspapers nor the least freedom of expression.Al-Zahf Al-Akhdar (organ of Libya’s Revolutionary Committee), as well as other official publications, reportedly criticised and insulted Arab countries, including Bahrain and Kuwait. Some articles apparently reported that the kingdom of Bahrain could not be considered « a state, a half state or a quarter state » Kuwait was apparently defined as a « topographical mistake, which has never been corrected ».The suspension of this newspaper comes during a strained political climate between Libya and the Arab states. The Libyan leader on 4 October announced a clean break with the Arab states and asked the People ‘s Congress, the Libyan grassroots political structure, to give their agreement to Libya pulling out of the Arab League.In the same speech, Colonel Kadhafi went as far as denying the human qualities of Arabs.His statement produced a damning reply from the Kuwaiti deputy prime minister for cabinet affairs, who told the Kuwait newspaper Al Rai Al-Am: « Mouammar Kadhafi will go to hell ». « One wonders what logic there is in suspending an official newspaper which serves the government and whose mistake is to reflect the tenor of Colonel Kadhafi’s defamatory statements », said Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders.« Could this be a concession to Arab states insulted by Kadhafi days before the publication of the incriminating articles? » June 24, 2020 Find out more February 23, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts December 17, 2019 Find out more
