Despite the world's indifference, Gezi Park continues to speak out loudly
Forced by protests to stop its redevelopment plan for the park, the government goes after the Chamber of Turkish Architects and Engineers. New clashes break out in Istanbul, with water cannons and tear gas used on the crowd. The death toll rises to five since protests began.


Istanbul (AsiaNews/Agencies) - Forgotten by the international community, Gezi Park demonstrators continue their protest. After the government suspended the redevelopment of the park, one of the last green spaces in old Istanbul, demonstrations started up against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his party. Overnight on Saturday, demonstrators and security forces clashed again near Taksim Square.
Istanbul police attacked a crowd of about 500 people with tear gas and water cannons. The peaceful demonstration, which had begun in Istiklal Street, was organised after the government imposed restrictions on architects and engineers. Protesters also clashed with local merchants, tired by 40 days of continuous protests.
Last Wednesday, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, leader of the Justice and Development Party Party (AKP), moved to curb the power of the Chamber of Turkish Architects and Engineers (TMMOB) by stripping it of the power to grant final approval to urban planning projects, prompting opposition charges that he is waging a vendetta against the group for its participation in the protests that began on 31 May.
"The government is trying to make the TMMOB . . . pay for all of those events which affected Turkey," Akif Hamzacebi, a senior lawmaker in the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), said.
The TMMOB, which represents some 400,000 professionals, joined the protest movement after it came out against the government plan for Gezi Park, which included building a shopping centre and rebuilding Ottoman-era barracks. As part of its action, the TMMOB launched a lawsuit that forced the government to suspend the project.
The wave of demonstrations that has been sweeping Turkey for more than 40 days began with a protest by some environmentalists against the destruction of Gezi Park, the green lung of old Istanbul, eventually morphing into an open challenge to the ruling AKP and its leader.
Five people have lost their lives during the protests, the latest is a young man of 19, who succumbed last Wednesday after a month in hospital.

According to her testimony to police, she received a phone call from a woman about two weeks ago, who reported that her mother was very sick. On 5 July, she took a train to Bamunigam, where two cousins ​​and some friends were waiting to take her home. However, rather than take her to the village of Minapanka, the men led her to a still unidentified place. Here the sister was gang raped for a week. On 11 July, the attackers left the sister at Berhampur train station, threatening her not to tell anyone about what had happened. The victim managed to reach her village where on 13 July she filed an official complaint.

The other attackers are nowhere to be found. the nun received medical assistance and tomorrow her superior will visit her.

Mumbai (AsiaNews) - "Once again, a Protestant clergyman in Orissa is murdered and the police tries to dismiss it as an accident," said Sajan George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC), who spoke to AsiaNews after the discovery of the tortured body of Rev Jaisankar, a medical doctor and pastor at the Blessing Youth Mission, near Lamtaput (Kandhamal district). His funeral will be held today at 4 pm (local time).

In 2012, the authorities reopened the case as a possible murder.

500 thousand people flee coast as typhoon Soulik hits China
The storm killed two people in Taiwan and is causing damage worth millions of dollars. Currently it is over the provinces of Fujian and Zhejiang: authorities have evacuated the population, canceled flights and grounded more than 31 thousand boats. The area is under military command with more than 6 thousand soldiers deployed for rescue operations.

Beijing (AsiaNews / Agencies) - After killing two people in Taiwan, Typhoon Soulik has made landfall on the coast of East China: more than 500 thousand people were evacuated by the government, which has sent about 6 thousand soldiers to affected areas and grounded 31 thousand boats. The National Weather Center is reporting wind gusts of up to 120 kilometers per hour, but explains that the typhoon "could become" a tropical storm within two days.

The coastal areas of Fujian and Zhejiang have been temporarily placed under military control, which has brought in tents and basic necessities. The government has canceled flights to and from the affected area and ordered all the boats to return to the port of Xiamen. An estimated 25 inches of rain fell in the area overnight and several rivers and streams have risen above alert levels: in the city of Nangde waves are reported to have exceeded 10 meters in height.

Government officials say they have done "everything possible to avoid harm to the population," but the storm has already caused direct economic damage to the tune of several million dollars. The city of Wenzhou in Zhejiang, claims to have already lost about 34 million dollars in damage control and emergencies.

Before touching the coasts of mainland China, the typhoon devastated Taiwan, where two people died, one is currently missing and 104 were injured. In the central part of the island the rains have caused landslides, while at least 5 villages have suffered serious damage.

Kim Cheol-woong, il pianista che vuole riunificare Nord e Sud
di Joseph Yun Li-sun
L’artista era il primo pianoforte dell’Orchestra sinfonica di Pyongyang, ma è fuggito dopo aver realizzato che la Corea del Nord “è l’unico posto al mondo dove anche l’arte deve servire la repressione”. Impegnato nella battaglia per i diritti umani nel suo Paese d’origine, suona “per mostrare che i nostri popoli non si odiano”.

Seoul (AsiaNews) - Su questo pianeta "esiste una sola nazione dove non puoi cantare anche se hai una bocca, ascoltare anche se hai le orecchie, suonare anche se hai le dita. E questa nazione è la Corea del Nord". Con questa frase il pianista nordcoreano Kim Cheol-woong ha chiuso ieri il suo concerto alla Haechi Hall di Seoul, organizzato dall'Alleanza per i diritti umani in Corea del Nord nell'ambito di una raccolta fondi.

Durante l'esibizione Kim, 39 anni, ha spiegato al pubblico presente come vive un musicista nel suo Paese d'origine e perché la musica può divenire uno strumento per la riunificazione delle due Coree, "l'unica strada verso la pace in Asia". Il musicista, che proviene da una famiglia dell'elite di Pyongyang, non ha nascosto i suoi privilegi di nascita: "Se non vieni dagli alti ranghi della società, in Corea del Nord non puoi neanche pensare di divenire un artista".

Tuttavia, l'arte secondo Pyongyang ha dei canoni molto diversi da quella di tutto il resto del mondo: "Nella terza classe ho dovuto imparare a suonare un pezzo intitolato 'Scherzo per l'esercito rivoluzionario'. Andando avanti con il tempo mi hanno imposto cosa suonare e cosa non suonare, quando e in che modo farlo. Sono diventato primo pianista dell'Orchestra sinfonica dello Stato, ma dovevo suonare solo melodie patriottiche e militari. E solo per i nostri leader".

Una notte però decide di suonare altro e, credendo di essere solo, si lancia in una versione di un pezzo jazz del francese Clayderman: "Mi hanno preso e portato all'Ufficio di sicurezza nazionale. Lì mi hanno imposto di 'confessare' e scrivere un'autocritica per 'denunciare un'attività borghese'. Ho capito che dovevo andarmene e sono scappato".

La fuga non è stata facile. Come tanti altri nordcoreani, decide di varcare il fiume Tumen ed entrare in maniera illegale in Cina: qui è costretto a lavorare come servo in una famiglia cinese della zona, che non lo denuncia alle autorità [Pechino e Pyongyang hanno un accordo di rimpatrio forzato per gli esuli - ndr] in cambio della sua schiavitù.

La prima volta che vede di nuovo un pianoforte è in una vecchia missione cristiana in Cina: "Era in condizioni terribili, ma fu meraviglioso. Degli 88 tasti, 50 non facevano alcun suono. Tuttavia l'ho suonato e mi sono messo a piangere". Nel 2001 riesce a entrare in Corea del Sud: da allora insegna musica al conservatorio e si impegna per i diritti umani in Corea del Nord.

"A Pyongyang non esiste il concetto di diritti umani - ha concluso Kim prima di congedarsi dal pubblico - e ho capito che dovevo fare di più per far crescere la consapevolezza mondiale riguardo quella situazione. Attraverso la musica cerco di sottolineare che fra Sud e Nord non c'è odio come dicono i nostri leader, ma solo qualche differenza causata dall'isolamento. Spero di riuscire nel mio compito".

Il tifone Soulik arriva in Cina, oltre 500mila persone in fuga dalle coste
La tempesta ha ucciso due persone a Taiwan e sta causando danni per milioni di dollari. Al momento è sopra le province del Fujian e del Zhejiang: le autorità hanno evacuato la popolazione, annullato i voli e richiamato oltre 31mila imbarcazioni. La zona è al momento sotto il controllo dell’esercito, che ha dispiegato circa 6mila uomini per le operazioni di soccorso.

Pechino (AsiaNews/Agenzie) - Dopo aver ucciso due persone a Taiwan, il tifone Soulik è calato sulle coste della Cina orientale: oltre 500mila persone sono state evacuate dal governo, che ha inviato nelle province colpite circa 6mila militari e richiamato in porto 31mila imbarcazioni. Il Centro meteorologico nazionale parla di venti a circa 120 chilometri orari, ma spiega che il tifone "potrebbe divenire" una tempesta tropicale entro due giorni.

Per il momento le zone costiere del Fujian e del Zhejiang sono sotto il controllo dei militari, che hanno portato nell'area tende e generi di prima necessità. Il governo ha annullato i voli da e per la zona colpita e ha ordinato a tutte le imbarcazioni di rientrare verso il porto di Xiamen. Qui, nella notte, sono caduti circa 25 centimetri di pioggia e diversi fiumi e torrenti sono saliti sopra il livello di guardia: nella città di Nangde le onde hanno superato i 10 metri di altezza.

I funzionari del governo dichiarano di aver fatto "tutto il necessario per evitare danni alla popolazione", ma la tempesta ha causato danni economici diretti per diversi milioni di dollari. La città di Wenzhou, nel Zhejiang, sostiene di aver già perso circa 34 milioni di dollari fra riparazioni ed emergenze varie.

Prima di toccare le coste della Cina continentale, il tifone ha devastato Taiwan. Qui due persone sono morte, una è al momento scomparsa e 104 sono rimasti feriti. Nella parte centrale dell'isola le piogge hanno causato frane e smottamenti, mentre almeno 5 villaggi hanno subito danni gravissimi.

Nanjing: mendica nuda a 4 anni per strada, la sua foto sconvolge la Cina
La bambina è stata identificata solo dopo che lo scatto è stato messo su internet e rilanciato da decine di migliaia di utenti. Ora insieme al padre, disabile mentale, è stata rimandata al suo villaggio di origine dove però non possono aiutarla “perché non ha i documenti”. Esperti denunciano l'inefficacia delle norme di tutela dell’infanzia.

Nanjing (AsiaNews/Agenzie) - L'immagine di una bambina di 4 anni nuda, ripresa da un anonimo fotografo mentre fuma e chiede la carità per le strade di Nanjing, ha sconvolto la popolazione cinese. Che ora inizia a interrogarsi su quanto siano efficaci le leggi per la protezione dell'infanzia nel Paese, mentre gli esperti denunciano: "Norme inefficaci e troppo vaghe, non possiamo andare avanti così".

La fotografia è stata scattata all'inizio di luglio e messa online: in poche ore decine di migliaia di utenti di Sina Weibo - il sito di microblogging più popolare di tutta la Cina - l'hanno fatta rimbalzare per tutta la Rete, aggiungendo commenti indignati per la situazione della piccola. Solo dopo il polverone alzato dai cyber utenti sono intervenute le autorità della capitale della provincia del Jiangsu.

I funzionari governativi hanno prima identificato la piccola e il padre - Zhou Chonggao, che sembra essere un disabile mentale - e poi li hanno rispediti nel loro villaggio di Chenlong, a circa 200 chilometri da Nanjing. Tuttavia qui non hanno potuto fare nulla per loro, dato che la bambina non ha un hukou, il certificato di nascita e residenza che consente a ogni cittadino cinese di ottenere cure mediche, cibo e un alloggio. Ora si attende la registrazione, ma il caso ha comunque mostrato tutte le falle del sistema sociale cinese.

Nei giorni precedenti, infatti, due bambini di 1 e 3 anni sono stati trovati senza vita in un appartamento sempre a Nanjing. I piccoli erano stati abbandonati dalla madre, tossicodipendente, e sono morti di fame. Anche in questo caso le autorità sono intervenute troppo tardi e solo dopo che i media avevano scoperto e denunciato il caso.

Niu Xuexing, vice direttore del Dipartimento affari civili del Jiangsu, sostiene che dietro questi drammi ci sia una legislazione troppo vaga: "Abbiamo leggi per la protezione dei minori che sono troppo vaghe e deboli. Nelle nazioni straniere, questi abusi mentali e fisici contri i minori vengono sanzionate al punto da portare via i figli ai genitori inadatti".

 Molte persone si domandano anche se il materialismo imperante (quello marxista e quello consumista), insieme a una perdita della morale tradizionale non stia distruggendo "ogni umanità" nella vita dei cinesi. A riprova di questa "incuria per la persona" alcuni ricordano la piccola Yueyue, una bambina di due anni investita da due camion, lasciata soffrire per strada da decine di passanti.

Nanjing: Photo of 4 year old forced to beg naked shocks China
The child was identified only after the picture was posted on the internet and shared by thousands of users. Now along with her father, who is mentally disabled, she has been sent back to her native village where, however, there is no help available "because they do not have papers." Experts denounce the ineffectiveness of child protection laws.

Nanjing (AsiaNews / Agencies) - The image of a 4 year old girl naked, taken by an anonymous photographer while she smokes and begs on the streets of Nanjing, has shocked the Chinese people. It has also raised the question of how effective laws for the protection of children are in the country, while experts denounce ineffective and vague norms: "we can not go on like this."

The photograph was taken in early July and posted online: within just a few hours tens of thousands of users of Sina Weibo - China's most popular microblogging site - shared it across the network, adding outraged comments at the conditions of the child. Only after the criticism of cyber users did Jiangsu's provincial capital's authorities intervene.

Officials identified the child and her father - Zhou Chonggao, who apparently is mentally disabled - and sent them back to their village Chenlong, about 200 kilometers from Nanjing. Here, however, little can be done for them, given that the child does not have a hukou, a birth and residence certificate that allows every Chinese citizen to obtain medical care, food and accommodation. The process of registration has begun, but the case has startlingly revealed the loopholes in China's social system.

Only days earlier, in fact, two children aged 1 and 3 years were found dead in an apartment again in Nanjing. The children were abandoned by their mother, a drug addict and died of starvation. Also in this case the authorities intervened too late and only after the media had discovered and reported the case.

Niu Xuexing, deputy director of the Department of Civil Affairs of Jiangsu, said that behind these dramas is the problem of vague legislation in matters of child protection: "We have laws to protect children but they are too vague and weak. In foreign nations, this type of mental and physical abuse against minors is punished to the point that children are taken away from unfit parents".

Many people also wonder if the rampant materialism (both Marxist and consumerist), along with a loss of traditional morality is not erasing "all humanity" from the life of the Chinese people. Underling this "lack of care for the person" many point to the case of  little Yueyue, a two year old girl run over by two trucks, left suffering on the street suffer by dozens of passers-by.
