Abuses of human rights, xenophobia and religious intolerance in Asia: the denunciation of “Franciscan International”

Bangkok: The situation of respect for human rights in East Asia and the Pacific area is precarious due to phenomena such as xenophobia, religious intolerance and the impact of climate change: these elements also represent the areas of action on which in 2019, Franciscan International (FI), an NGO of the Franciscan family, accredited to the United Nations, operated most. This is what the Annual Report reports, sent to Fides by the Organization, which carries out advocacy activities at the United Nations, promoting respect for all human rights and environmental justice.

Among the various issues addressed and the requests presented to the UN assembly, there are the difficult relationship between West Papua and the Indonesian government and the abuses committed by the Philippine government. During 2019, FI reported “human rights violations in West Papua in a context of persistent conflict over independence issues, alleged discrimination against indigenous Papuans and the development of unsustainable agricultural megaprojects”.

The information reaches FI mainly thanks to the rooting of the Franciscan Family on the island, where several Franciscan communities reside, as “access to journalists and other international observers is still severely limited by the Indonesian authorities”. In this context, however, representatives of Franciscan International were able to help organize an ecumenical visit to West Papua, sponsored by the World Council of Churches (WCC), the first allowed since 1969, the year in which the region was integrated into Indonesia. “During the year, Franciscan International exploited its access and presence in West Papua to bring to light these continuous violations, also through two events organized during the meetings of the Human Rights Council, talks with Indonesian diplomats and one series of urgent appeals to the UN”, reads the note.

As for the Philippines, however, the organization has brought to the attention of the UN the continuous violations of human rights perpetrated by security forces as part of a government program of “war on drugs” which, according to the groups operating for the protection of human rights, could have caused about 27 thousand victims. In this regard, it is noted that “the Franciscan Family and the entire Catholic Church in the Philippines have manifested strenuous opposition to government actions, also providing rehabilitation for drug addicts and pastoral and financial support for the families of the victims”. This commitment has provoked threats to Franciscan religious by government and police officials, including President Duterte himself, in an environment “increasingly hostile to the work of civil society groups and confessional organizations”.

The other countries in the area involved in the work of Franciscan International are Kiribati, Japan, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka and Vanuatu.
In addition to Asia, the Franciscan NGO is active in Africa and the Americas, involving over 30 countries with its work.

As evidenced by the 2019 Report, there were a total of 50 advocacy interventions and presentations at the United Nations, also carried out thanks to the work of 28 local partners involved in reporting to the UN. Franciscans International’s advocacy “is based on three pillars that have formed the foundations of Franciscan spirituality over the centuries: human dignity, peace and care for creation”. Internationally, this vocation translates today into the belief that sustainable development, environmental protection and respect for human rights are inextricably linked.

How to identify Fake News or Messages on Social Media 

Beware of Fake News and Fake Messages on Social Media

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines

When you follow COVID-19 related news and messages from social media then check and recheck it before consuming it.Follow journalism mantra: if your mother says she loves you, check it out.

Most of the messages or informations quote different organizations like WHO, UNICEF, UNDP,Cambridge University  or other well known institutes,organizations or individual to authenticate the messeges.Check official websites of these organizations  if stories are repeated there

Forwarding messages from unknown sources or little known sources, it would be better to ignore it.

Check whether any logo like UNICEF or WHO or other organizations used in the messages which look similar to original logo.

These type of messages are full of Grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes which are quite uncommon in original messages.

Don't rely on viral social media messages such as Coronavirus Infected Indian Currencies of Rs.500 and Rs.2,000 Notes Found, Muslim Man Spit in Food At Indian Restaurant.....Always Check Authentic Sources.

Some fake messages pretend to be real one like unofficial Twitter handle of international media organizations like BBC,CNN,Washinton Post, New York Times-check the official Twitter handles of media outlets.

You can identify fake messages if the message requests you to share it.

Beware of Fake News or Fake Photos/Videos Relating to Communal Hatred
