In 2015 more than 185 environmentalists and land defenders have been murdered; about 40% of them were natives defending their ancestral land. This is more than ever before and more than twice as much as in 2014. Brazil, Peru, the Philippines, Colombia and Honduras are among the most dangerous countries. The people had to go for mining, agribusiness, hydropower projects and forest clearing. Global Witness identified this to be coherent with a deteriorated, worldwide infringement of freedom of expression, opinion and assembly as well as the attempts to deprive organizations of civil society from their financial basis.

Since today in the morning a new version of our online RSS viewer has been put online after a few gradual updates. Among the newly supported features are a pre-selection of all messages which have been translated into English as well as a previous/next menu which can be used to jump to related messsages. The menu will become active when you move the mouse over the type tag which can be one of 'new'/'update'. Besides this several bugs which had been introduced by an erroneous update of ViewRSS shall now be resolved.
Whenever you want to give a link to one of our messages we still wanna ask you to use the now correctly working PickUpLink for this purpose. Please change any existing link of you to not contain the 'number' or 'start' parameter in its URL for ViewRSS; '#NN' and 'guid=NN' should also match.
If you should still find an error or you should have a new idea for ViewRSS please do not hesitate to contact us. Some SEO optimizations as well as the split-out of messages of previous years into an own feed have been carried out as well. Our own XML schema offering the advanced features for our RSS viewer has been updated in consonance.

Next week, on 6th of June 2016 the EU energy ministers are meeting. We have to use this moment to shout out loudly against nuclear power in Europe. Let’s tell our ministers and the Commission to drop all plans to support the nuclear power industry in their expensive gambles with our tax money - and with our health!
