Built for a public social housing body, this building is located on the Avenue de Grande-Bretagne in Toulouse joins an existing complex of low-rise blocks and a sixteen storey tower block laid out around a park planted with trees. The complex is adjacent to the ZAC de la Cartoucherie, an emerging priority development zone.

Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe new building both complements an existing complex and constitutes its new entrance. It is laid out along the Avenue de Grande-Bretagne, set back from the street and has a wide porch connecting the public space of the avenue with the interior of the estate. The compact, rationally and repetitively structured building features 61 dual-aspect flats overlooking the avenue to the north and the park to the south. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe large ground floor flats are maisonettes with independent entrances and private patios, which means they feel similar to individual housing units. From the second to the seventh floor 2, 3 and 4 room flats are accessed via a network of walkways running along the north-facing façade. These open walkways are buffer spaces that afford privacy for the flats and shelter them from traffic noise. Save this picture!plan 02On the south side, wide full-length loggias with translucent sliding sunscreens offer all the flats a large, private outside area. The design is expressed using rational construction methods and features overhanging loggias and walkways. The repetitive “stacking” approach is offset by the varied way the sliding sunscreens on the south facing loggias are arranged. The colour of the façades echoes the white and pale grey neighbouring buildings and creates a subtle sense of the varying light and shadow falling on the building. Save this picture!plan 03Designed to form both a harmonious extension of the existing estate and a link between it and the surrounding traditional urban fabric, this building offers a distanced, contemporary interpretation of the precepts of Modern Architecture. Faithful to the ambitions of modern architectural design in terms of housing quality, with its large, well-oriented, well-ventilated, comfortable flats, it transposes those ambitions into the context of urban redevelopment in a modern district.

Subway artists and police brutality activists held a news conference at City Hall on Aug. 12 to protest the racist crackdown by the New York Police Department against performers in the mass transit system.According to media reports in early July, arrests of subway performers have increased by 500 percent under Commissioner William Bratton, from 40 arrests in 2013 to 240 so far this year.Matthew Christian of the performer advocacy group Busk NY explained that the NYPD ignores official MTA rules of conduct when they harass artists performing on subway platforms and mezzanines. He offered copies of the rules to journalists to see for themselves.Andrew “Goofy” Saunders of the W.A.F.F.L.E. NY dance collective spoke out about how he was unjustly arrested and jailed. “We just want to dance,” he said. “The NYPD has repeatedly gone beyond the provisions of the MTA’s rules of conduct by charging train dancers — often young Black or Latino males — with misdemeanor reckless endangerment, even when no injuries have been demonstrated during decades of performances,” asserted Josmar Trujillo of New Yorkers Against Bratton.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Laokolé, who was arrested in N’Djamena on the night of 22 March, is also an author, activist and humanitarian worker.“Protests in Chad and abroad – by organizations such as Internet Without Borders, Human Rights Without Borders and Amnesty International – failed to elicit any information from the authorities about Laokolé and why he is being held,” Reporters Without Borders said.“What is he supposed to have done, why has he been held for such a long time, and why is he being held incommunicado? Everything indicates that the authorities did not like what he was posting online under the blog name of Vourboubé Pierre, and that they arrested him when it was revealed that he was the blogger.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge the Chadian government to immediately provide information about the state of Laokolé’s health and the reasons for his detention.”On the night of 22 March, Laokolé was driving with family members in the N’Djamena district of Atrone when he was stopped by a group of men in civilan dress and was forced to get into their vehicle.Amnesty International has quoted Chadian human rights activists as saying he was seen three days later in the former OCAM military camp and was subsequently transferred to an unofficial camp at Amsinene, 30 km outside the capital, which is notorious for its use by the intelligence services for heavy-handed interrogation and torture.According to his family, Laokolé had been summoned for questioning by the criminal investigation police earlier on the day of his arrest as the result of a complaint about an article posted on an exile blog called Le blog de Makaila (http://makaila.over-blog.com/) under the pseudonym of Vourboubé Pierre.The plaintiffs claimed that the blog post made “false accusations” against them. After negotiations, Laokolé gave them an apology. But the complaint served to confirm that he was the writer who used this well-known blog name.Three days before his arrest, he was named as the blog’s author in an article on the pro-government blog VisionduTchad.net that began: “Who is this author? Our blog has discovered who is hiding behind these pseudonyms and who is flooding us with disinformation.” It named not only Laokolé but also members of his family and gave details about his personal life.His last blog entry, posted on 16 March, may also have prompted his arrest. It identified a number of persons as working as intelligence agents for Jean-Bernard Padare, the minister of land affairs.Laokolé is the son of Jean-Baptiste Laokolé, the deputy general secretary of the opposition Freedoms and Development Party (PLD), and nephew of Saleh Kebzabo, a parliamentarian and president of the opposition National Union for Development and Renewal (UNDR).Learn more about freedom of information in Chad: * Press releases * Country filePhotograph: Chanian security forces (Issouf Sanogo – AFP) October 7, 2020 Find out more to go further

The UK is providing a new package of life-saving support to help treat patients in 11 hospitals under pressure in Gaza, by restocking vital medical supplies including surgical equipment, bandages and medicines following the recent surge in violence.The funding, announced by Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt today (Tuesday 29 May) on a visit to Gaza, will support work by the International Committee of the Red Cross to keep hospitals open and functioning at a time when the healthcare system is under huge strain.Today’s commitment of £1.5 million will also help provide physical rehabilitation services for around 4,000 people.Speaking from Gaza, Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt said: If you have an urgent media query, please email the DFID Media Team on [email protected] in the first instance and we will respond as soon as possible. I am deeply concerned about the worsening situation in the Gaza strip, and today’s UK aid package gives a message to the world, and to the people of Gaza, that we have not forgotten them or their plight. Today’s support will help to ensure that hospitals which are under immense pressure are able to cope with the increased number of casualties who need medical and surgical care. It is absolutely vital that the UK steps up to help those suffering and ensure that vulnerable Gazans are able to access treatment to keep them alive. We have been clear that a political settlement is the only way to ensure lasting peace for Palestinians and Israelis alike. All parties must redouble their political efforts and return to the negotiating table, not only to address the deteriorating conditions in Gaza, but to ensure tragedies of the past months are not repeated. General media queries (24 hours) Telephone 020 7023 0600 Email [email protected] UK support is already providing Gazans with access to clean water, and improving sanitation facilities to help stop the spread of deadly disease.Through the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees (UNRWA), UK aid is providing basic health and education to 1.3 million people in Gaza, as well as over 800,000 refugees in the West Bank.Minister Burt announced in March at the Rome Conference that the UK will deliver its next round of financial support to UNRWA earlier than originally planned to help meet the growing needs of Palestinian refugees across the region.Notes to editorsToday’s £1.5 million package is a new allocation from the Occupied Palestinian Territories programme budget for 2018/19.
