LeoVegas unveils new proprietary multi-brand platform

first_img LeoVegas unveils new proprietary multi-brand platform Topics: Strategy Tech & innovation Tags: Mobile Online Gambling LeoVegas Gaming has introduced a new proprietary multi-brand platform in a move that will enable the Swedish operator to launch new brands under the collective name ‘Brands of Leo’.The operator has said this new multi-brand strategy has been made possible by its “flexible and scalable proprietary technical platform”, with the operator now aiming to develop and expand its platform with more brands.A small team within LeoVegas will spearhead the new Brands of Leo venture, with the operator saying that this is in line with efforts to increase the efficiency of its existing resources.“The multi-brand functionality that we have developed on our proprietary core platform will allow us now to launch new brands with a high level of flexibility and scalability,” LeoVegas CEO Gustaf Hagman said.“These will be distinctly targeted to different customer groups – some of which are looking for niche functionality and others that are driven by the charm of novelty that a new and fresh brand offers.“Our ambition is to raise the bar in the industry and always offer something new and unique while maintaining our overall focus on responsible gaming.”The move comes after LeoVegas last month also launched its Pixel Digital esports betting brand in the regulated Swedish market, after securing a licence from national regulator Spelinspektionen. LeoVegas will initially focus on Sweden and the Nordics, after which it will open up the brand to international markets.LeoVegas last month also postponed its growth targets after experiencing a drop in operating profit during 2018. Revenue was up 51% year-on-year to €327.8m (£280.2m/$371.1m) in the 12 months to December 31, 2018, but operating profit slipped from €19.9m to €19.2m.

2019 Rugby World Cup: Ireland 35-0 Russia

It was Munster man Andrew Conway who dotted down next to the posts and they would have had another had it not been for Iain Henderson knocking on with the try-line beckoning. Commentator Ugo Monye was once again criticising the lack of clinical finishing, and on the basis of this moment it is hard to argue with him.The final try of the match came off a lovely move, though, as Garry Ringrose capped off an up-and-down match for Ireland who finished as 35-0 winners.Star manGiven the stop-start nature of the match, and the number of errors made by seemingly everyone, this was not an easy decision to make. However, we have gone for Jack Carty as he showed dynamism off the bench and set up big scores for the Irish.Related: Rugby World Cup TV CoverageThe reactionIreland coach Joe Schmidt: “We need the win to take confidence, we need the performance to take confidence, and we need the support we got tonight to take confidence. I like the way we controlled the game in very tough conditions out there.“We made it a little bit loose with the ball sometimes and in those greasy conditions and that high humidity… we knew there had already been 65 handling errors in the two games previously – maybe we tried to make 65 ourselves.”Russia coach Lyn Jones: “I’m absolutely delighted with our performance. We came here to make it really hard for Ireland to score the four tries.“I’m just so proud of our players, they absolutely gave everything. We were organised, our tactics worked well. Unfortunately we didn’t score any points, but the Russian players gave everything they had and they were shattered at the end, and that’s all you can ask.”The TeamsIreland: Rob Kearney (Jordan Larmour 49); Andrew Conway, Garry Ringrose, Bundee Aki, Keith Earls; Johnny Sexton (capt, Jack Carty 40), Luke McGrath; Dave Kilcoyne (Andrew Porter 57), Niall Scannell (Sean Cronin 57), James Ryan (Tadhg Furlong 57), Jean Kleyn (Iain Henderson 60), Tadhg Beirne; Rhys Ruddock, Peter O’Mahony, Jordi Murphy (CJ Stander 26).Tries: Kearney 2, O’Mahony 13, Ruddock 36, Conway 61, Ringrose 75.  Cons: Sexton 3, Carty 2.Russia: Vasily Artemyev (capt); German Davydov, Igor Galinovskiy, Kirill Golosnitskiy (Vladimir Ostroushko 14), Denis Simplikevich (Sergey Ianiushkin 70); Ramil Gaisin, Dmitry Perov; Andrey Polivalov (Valery Morozov 40), Evgeny Matveev (Stanislav Selskii 40), Kirill Gotovtsev, Andrey Garbuzov (Andrey Ostrikov 49), Bodgan Fedotko (Evgeny Elgin 63); Anton Sychev (Roman Khodin 68), Tagir Gadzhiev, Victor Gresev.Yellow cards: Fedotko (33), Ostrikov (50).

Yet they did not really get out of third gear and didn’t really need to as the Russians kept gifting the men in green with knock-ons and penalties.Indeed a knock-on by Bogdan Fedotko gave the Irish a simple try as Sexton grubber-kicked through the Russian defence and Peter O’Mahony gathered to score. Things went bad to worse when Kiril Golosnitskiy, one of Russia’s best players, had to go off with the help of a stretcher after bashing his knee on the post in defence.Despite the occasional clinical moment from the Irish, the first half was marred once again by handling errors thanks to humidity, sweat and a slippery ball. Both sides struggled to build momentum as knock-ons were the order of the day.Seven minutes before half-time the Russians’ evening got a little bit harder thanks to that man Fedotko again as he conceded two penalties within a couple of minutes of each other which earned him a yellow-card. Rhys Ruddock made them pay almost immediately, bulldozing his way over to give Ireland a 21-0 lead at half-time.Believe it or not but it took the Irish 21 minutes into the second-half to score another try and secure the bonus point. No doubt the Russians having another man sent to the sin-bin, this time Ostrikov, played its part.

Black History Month: St. Barnabas ‘keeps hope alive’ in Pasadena

first_img Rector Tampa, FL In conjunction with Black History Month, the Episcopal News Service is featuring articles on historically black Episcopal congregations during February. Resources for Black History Month are available here.Michael Mims, retired Pasadena City College professor who borrowed from his family archive to create the retrospective. Photo: Keith Yamamoto[Episcopal News Service] Ishmael Bracy had come to experience the 32nd annual Black History Parade and Festival in Pasadena, California on Feb. 15.Along the parade route, the 24-year-old Pasadena resident was drawn in by an eight-panel photographic retrospective spanning nine decades of the life of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church located on the historically black congregation’s front lawn.“I feel honored to be exposed to the legacy of their contributions to the community, spiritual and otherwise,” said Bracy, of the display. “I’d like to see more people my age here, embracing the history that has kept hope alive for so long, and embracing the church and the community.”(St. Barnabas is the second church to be featured in a Black History Month Episcopal News Service series in February focusing on historically black congregations. The historically black congregations were founded by African Americans who were not welcome in mainline Episcopal churches post-slavery and during racial segregation in the United States.)As spectators and supporters mingled with vendors, hawking ice cream, T-shirts, black, red and green Pan-African flags, and balloons, Michael Mims, 75, a retired Pasadena City College photography professor and St. Barnabas member, was offering goods and services of another kind.“I’m here to answer questions, to invite people to come and take a look, to give them information,” said Mims, who calculates that he has attended the church since he was three years old.The “Early Years” panel included photos of his aunt, Rosebud Mims, who along with seven other African-American women founded the church in 1923. Nine years later, it was officially recognized as a mission in the Diocese of Los Angeles.The Rev. Mayra Macedo-Nolan of Lake Avenue Church gazes at the St. Barnabas retrospective. Photo: Keith YamamotoFor the Rev. Mayra Macedo-Nolan and her two-year-old daughter Zion, the photos were captivating.“I’ve learned a little bit about the history of St. Barnabas, and I want to learn more,” said Macedo-Nolan, a pastor at nearby Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena.“We’re going to be doing a community stations of the cross during Lent, and we want St. Barnabas to be included as the station where Christ is denied,” she said. “We chose to do that one here because of the way St. Barnabas started — the way things were done in the past was denying Christ – and also to look at the ways we still do that today.”Church history, family historyMims said he reached into his family archives to create the photographic display of the church’s history.“I have pictures of my great-aunt, who was responsible for taking me to St. Barnabas in 1941,” Mims said. She was Laura Kennedy, who moved to Pasadena in the 1930s from Greenville, South Carolina to help Mims’ mother raise six children.The photographs tell the story: of the first meetings, in the home of Georgia Weatherton on nearby Del Mar Street, where some 30 worshippers attended on Sunday mornings; of the 1933 dedication of the sanctuary; a 1947 confirmation service; the groundbreaking and 1972 dedication of the new parish hall envisioned as a community center; and of scores of gatherings, fundraisers, barbecues and celebrations.From left, the Rev. Jesse Moses (third rector); the Rev. Alfred Norman (second and fourth rectors); the Rev. Alfred Wilkins, first rector; and the Rev. Ivor Ottley, fifth rector, who took the church to parish status.

Alfred Wilkins (1933-1943), who heeded “the call of his country, joining the U.S. Army as a chaplain,” according to a written history.He was followed by the Rev. Alfred Norman (1943-1946, 1951-1970); the Rev. Jesse Moses (1946-1951); the Rev. Ivor Ottley (1977-1990).Ottley challenged the congregation “to find its true vocation as black Episcopalians” and to commit to an ethic of stewardship, authenticity, education, leadership, ecumenical fellowship, social justice and outreach, “embracing the community beyond the walls of the church,” according to Mims.The fruits of those efforts are apparent today, as members gathered curbside in front of the church on Feb. 15, applauding and cheering parade passersby, more than a dozen local school marching bands, African dancers and drummers, the Omega Psi Phi and Kappa Alpha Psi fraternities and Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha sororities, equestrians and other service organizations.They received accolades and shouts out of their own from parade participants like Pasadena City Councilman John Kennedy.“Yeah, St. Barnabas is in the house,” Kennedy called out, waving to parishioners as he passed the church, nearing the last leg of the parade route. “Thank you for being here, St. Barnabas.”‘Embracing the community’At least a part of that vocation has been a tradition of community involvement, according to the Rev. John Goldingay, a Fuller Theological Seminary Professor of Old Testament, who now serves as priest-in-charge.“We’re only a tiny congregation,” but he and about a dozen church members regularly take part in cooking for, serving and eating with members of the homeless community at the Union Station Shelter in Pasadena, he said.Together, they serve about 50 homeless adults every third Friday and it is an opportunity to enrich the lives of others as well as that of the congregation, he said.“It is kind of a transitional place for people who are on their way toward being able to get back to work,” according to Goldingay, a Church of England priest for 30 years. He moved to Pasadena to teach and with his wife visited the nearby church of St. Barnabas “not knowing we’d find ourselves the only white people there,” he recalled.“But we got this fantastic welcome, so much so that we stayed,” he said. “They seem to accept me as a human being, and as a priest, and a Christian.”Radical welcome, belongingThat kind of radical hospitality is one way the church has attempted to navigate the contemporary challenges of shifting demographics, aging population, dwindling membership and resources.With an average Sunday attendance of about 50 between two services, the congregation is weighing “how we can reverse that trend,” Goldingay said.Over the years the congregation’s traditional African-American population increasingly has broadened to include members from across the diaspora, including the Caribbean and Central America, and also whites like himself, Goldingay said.Mark Bradshaw, 32, a seminarian serving at St. Barnabas, agreed. “I am not black,” he said during a telephone interview with ENS, but added that he and his wife Katie were so warmly welcomed when they visited the church that “we became Episcopalians. We were confirmed at St. Barnabas and it has become everything my wife and I had been hoping and praying for in a congregation.”He and the congregation have embarked upon several projects, he added. “I’m in the process of meeting people, updating the website, spending time during the week at the Jackie Robinson Park across the street,” he said.“And I’ve been meeting with people in the congregation and we’re thinking about starting a new service or altering one of our services that would be very true to who we are and very liturgical but that might also be a service that would better meet the needs of younger persons,” he said.He hopes that other newcomers can experience the same sense of belonging he has found. “I have never been a part of people so welcoming,” he said.“Two years ago, Fr. John asked the congregation to share some of their stories from the civil rights movement and it was incredible,” he recalled. “Almost everybody had marched with Dr. King or had met him. The congregation takes a lot of pride in their history.”Which made preaching about the life of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. feel a bit overwhelming, but it was an opportunity “to talk about how far we’ve come and the work of Dr. King, and to thank the congregation for how they welcomed us,” he said.“It’s amazing,” he added. “This congregation that started because they weren’t welcome has become so welcoming. I’ve never witnessed before the kind of warmth with which they welcome new people into their midst. It’s a wonderful gift.”St. Barnabas members gather in front of the church to cheer on the parade. Photo: Keith YamamotoLooking forward to the next generationShowna Edwards, 31, seated in a folding chair in front of the church, had a bird’s eye view of the parade, and was patiently awaiting sight of the church’s parade entry –including several young people, along with Bradshaw bearing the St. Barnabas banner.“It’s an exciting feeling to know the church is participating in the parade, to have our church known in this small part of Pasadena,” said Edwards, as she bounced one-year-old August Bradshaw on her knee.“We’re a close-knit church family. I grew up here,” added Edwards, who sees signs of the church rebounding. Now, her three-year-old son Kaden is part of the Sunday programs.“We have a Sunday school again. Young people are here. The church is growing. It’s very nice to see that, because it’s good support, to grow up with friends together in a church home.”Gail McKinnon (far left) with Gloria Huffman (second left) St. Barnabas members who brought their Red Hat Society Nubian Roses of the Nile chapter sisters to the church and parade. Photo: Keith YamamotoGail McKinnon and Gloria Huffman, long-time members, brought along some of their Red Hat Society Nubian Roses of the Nile chapter sisters – an international society of women who wear red hats and purple dresses and are dedicated to reshaping the way women are viewed in society.“St. Barnabas is a family,” agreed McKinnon. “I’ve been here since 1995. I had been away from church for many years and I was welcomed back so whole-heartedly that it became my home. We love each other. We do a lot of eating. I joined and I’ve never looked back.”The church, located across the street from the park named after baseball great Jackie Robinson, a native son, where the crowd had already begun to gather for food, fun and festival, the church also held an open house for the community.For Pasadena residents John and Tina (who asked that their last names be withheld), the day was an opportunity to make historic and future connections for their five-year-old twins Phoebe and Perry.Karla Enrequez and her son Matthew carry the St. Barnabas banner in the 32nd annual Pasadena Black History Parade. Photo: Keith YamamotoThey visited Mims’ photographic retrospective and then pointed out the church’s parade entry, as Karla Enrequez and her son Matthew, along with Mark Bradshaw, bearing the St. Barnabas banner, waved to the crowds.“This is so informative,” Tina, a professional singer, said as cheers and applause erupted for St. Barnabas.“This is a whole historical perspective of the African-American past in Pasadena … This is a thriving community,” added Tina, who said she’d be back to visit the church.Goldingay agreed, noting a growing interest among numerous parade watchers who visited inside the church. “Next year, we want to see how we can develop what we did this year,” he said.As for Michael Mims, he spent much of the day telling family and church stories, stories of his aunt and about the many others who set the standard for keeping faith and hope alive in Pasadena and for moving the tradition forward for future generations.“It’s been a good foundation,” he said of the church. “From a spiritual aspect, a community aspect, a family aspect, it’s been such a big part of my life. I don’t know what I’d be without St. Barnabas. I had a lot of mentors.”–The Rev. Pat McCaughan is a correspondent for the Episcopal News Service. She is based in Los Angeles.

Leicester beat London Irish to win the Guinness Premiership Final

first_imgMonday May 18, 2009 Leicester beat London Irish to win the Guinness Premiership Final The Leicester Tigers now stand in line to do the double as they won the Guinness Premiership Final 10-9 on Saturday at Twickenham. They will face Leinster this coming weekend in the Heineken Cup, as they look to win both English and European Championships.The underdogs London Irish fought hard, pushing the Tigers to the limit and at times looking the more creative side. Leicester gathered some momentum in the second half though, which led to a try by penalty shootout hero Jordan Crane, who had earlier been sin binned.It wasnt a pretty match by any means, fully acknowledged by Tigers captain Geordan Murphy.“It was hard work,” said Murphy. “We are going to have to raise our game next week.”Leicesters stand in flyhalf Sam Vesty felt that the win sets them up nicely for next weekends crucial European Cup Final.“I think a good dirty, horrible win holds us in good stead for next week,” said Vesty.“It is the perfect result. An ugly win keeps us on our toes. Sometimes you have to win ugly. No-one remembers how you became champions in 2009. All that matters is we are champions.“We will definitely need to do more next week but I am not worried. You look at us over the last 12 weeks, we have been attacking very well. We weren’t that far off yesterday.The Tigers wont have much time to celebrate, as all focus now shifts to the upcoming weekend, and their big clash with Leinster in Edinburgh.

Reverse advent calendars – donations with seasonal appeal

However, this meant that Christmas tended to get quite hectic with volunteers trying to juggle their own family commitments while making sure gifts got to their intended recipients on time. We heard about reverse advents and thought it might give us the chance to make sure that people receive hampers before Christmas.“In 2016 we launched a reverse advent calendar. It ran for 24 days, based on a day-by-day list and culminating with a hamper-gifting day in early December. The response was huge! We were inundated!“This year we are doing a 12-day calendar. We think the smaller hampers will make it easier for more people to get involved and it will be better matched to our client numbers.“Once we launch on 27 November, we will be posting an ‘item of the day’ from our list on Twitter and Facebook. We will include pictures of items and will encourage people to share their own pictures using the hashtag #12daysNewMills. We’ll be sprinkling a dusting of seasonal cheer to build momentum throughout the campaign.“We have set a hamper gifting day on 10 December and hired a youth centre where people can deliver their boxes. The sight of the accumulated hampers is amazing.“My advice to any organisation starting a reverse advent calendar is to keep it relevant, keep it manageable, keep it playful and keep it local.”How to run a reverse advent calendarPlan your campaignWhen will you launch and how many days will you run for? Last year Lichfield Foodbank asked for donations to fill their post-Christmas slumpWhat items do you want? Will you share a full list at the start or release one each day?When and where will you take delivery of donations? How will you store, sort and distribute items?Launch your campaignLet supporters know about the campaign online, via email and on social mediaProduce a poster or image to explain how it works. This downloadable poster from Luton Foodbank (PDF) includes facts about the foodbank and pictures of itemsEncourage and inspire supporters by telling them about the difference donations will makeMake it fun and shareable with images, gifs, videos and hashtags. North Clwyd Animal Rescue included dog images in their reverse advent calendarRun your campaignPlan your comms at the start and keep momentum going by thinking about how you’ll deal with the lull once initial excitement has passedGive encouragement and thanksTell stories of the people who will benefitRemind people that they can still join in after the campaign has startedEnd your campaignCelebrate successes and show impact.

After noting the popularity of reverse advent calendars in 2016, this year they have decided to create their own.Following several months of planning, which included the logistics of collection and distribution, the charity launched its campaign on 3 November. This involved social media and website promotion to let people know how they could take part, and included an appearance on BBC Breakfast and coverage by the Huffington Post.The charity is asking supporters to “pop something lovely” into a box every day during advent. Items such as unwrapped gifts, toys, toiletries, warm clothing and home decorations will be distributed to the residents of their accommodation projects, who often receive very little.Jill Watkin, Fundraising Manager at Changing Lives said: “The reverse advent calendars are small acts of kindness that will add up to a massive difference for vulnerable people.“These donations will provide practical support to people who are homeless or at risk of it, those who are battling life-threatening addictions, escaping domestic abuse or sexual exploitation, and people overcoming barriers to employment.“We hope the appeal will give supporters a sense of purpose through the festive period and know that they are helping bring cheer to people in genuine need.”Around 200 people have already signed up, and the charity hopes that many more will get involved.Find out more about the Changing Lives’ reverse advent calendar.

Local Zoning Restrictions Hurting Livestock Expansion in Indiana

first_img SHARE Local Zoning Restrictions Hurting Livestock Expansion in Indiana Facebook Twitter The measure passed the Senate and was heard by the House Ag committee on Thursday. It passed unanimously and will now move to the full House for consideration. Josh TraneryLegislation that would help livestock producers deal with local zoning restrictions is moving in the Indiana General Assembly.  Senate Bill 249, authored by State Senator Jean Leising, is designed to give livestock producers a tool to deal better with local zoning issues.   “The rights of individual property owners are being eroded by their local government,” Leising said. Local Zoning Restrictions Hurting Livestock Expansion in Indiana SHARE Previous articleWheat Growers Call For End to Cuba EmbargoNext articleContest to Honor the Spirit of the American Farmer Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Mar 12, 2015 Tranery says having a statewide survey will show what areas of the state welcome livestock operations and which do not, “If we can identify the areas where there is likely to be opposition, we can work in these areas to educate the public and local leaders before the issues come up.” He added some counties (namely Jackson and Bartholomew) have pursued moratoriums on new livestock facilities or placed stringent restrictions on barn construction or expansion. The measure has been amended to call for a statewide survey of local zoning regulations that govern livestock operations which will be done by Purdue. Indiana Pork Executive Director Josh Tranery says the survey is needed, “We have a good idea of what the zoning issues are in counties where we currently have disputes, but an up to date statewide snapshot would be helpful.” Tranery says uncertainty about local zoning issues and fears of local activist campaigns is hurting growth in livestock production by keeping some producers from expanding or starting new operations, “I am concerned that the fear of a lot of local push back may be putting plans for expansion on hold or even cancelling them altogether.” Facebook Twitter Home Market Local Zoning Restrictions Hurting Livestock Expansion in Indianalast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders backs European Coalition appeal not to lift China arms embargo

first_img News to go further Follow the news on China Friday 3 December 2004:In the lead up to the seventh EU-China Summit on 8 December 2004 in The Hague, our organisations call on the EU to retain the weapons sales embargo on China. An end to the embargo cannot be justified without significant improvement of human rights in China.We regret that some European Union leaders have seemingly dismissed the repeated concerns of the European Parliament, human rights groups and the citizens of Europe by indicating that they are “ready to give a positive signal to China” with regard to lifting its embargo on weapons sales.The arms embargo was imposed as a direct response to the Tiananmen Square massacre in June 1989 and following the similarly brutal quelling of civil unrest by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in Tibet in the same year. The international outrage over the killings and arrests of thousands of students and workers by the PLA prompted the European countries to react with firmness.Any lifting of the arms embargo would potentially lead to European weapons technology being used to suppress peaceful resistance by the people of Tibet, East Turkistan (now known as the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region), Inner Mongolia, against Taiwan, or end up in the hands of the North Korean, Burmese and/or Sudanese military, who are privileged recipients of Chinese arms.Last week the European Parliament voted overwhelmingly in favour of maintaining the embargo, arguing that China must take “concrete steps with a view to improving the human rights situation” (17 November). In addition, the Former European Commissioner, Mr. Chris Patten, said at the European Parliament in Strasbourg that the lifting of the embargo should be linked to concrete improvements in the human rights in China (16 November).The Coalition’s member organisations call on the European Union and its member states to maintain the embargo until significant improvement is made to the human rights situation in the People’s Republic of China. The Coalition calls upon China to:1. Revise its position on the Tiananmen Square pro-democracy demonstrations, which are still described by the authorities as “counter-revolutionary” incidents, and stop harassing and imprisoning people who defend the memory of the Tiananmen Square students, including Huang Qi and Jiang Yanyong;2. Free all prisoners of conscience, including those detained after the June 1989 events, and to exonerate the victims of the 4 June 1989 massacre by recognising the Tiananmen Mothers movement; 3. State that it will not use weapons against its own citizens, the people of Tibet, Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia or Taiwan;4. Demonstrate its commitment to non-violent resolutions of disputes by acknowledging the Dalai Lama’s significant concessions and engaging in formal dialogue with the Dalai Lama or his representatives to ensure a negotiated solution to the future status of Tibet; 5. Comply with the United Nations human rights mechanisms and ratifies the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Ottawa treaty on banned weapons, especially anti-personnel mines.6. Adopt a moratorium on executions as a first step towards the abolition of the death penalty as set forth in the EU Guidelines on the death penalty. Europe showed leadership in imposing this sanction on China in 1989 for “acts of repression against those who legitimately claim their democratic rights.” Major human rights violations continue to take place.The EU is attempting to shift public attention from the reasons the embargo was first imposed – the systematic human rights abuses in China, which continue today – to its own Code of Conduct on arms exports. The Coalition encourages the strengthening of the Code and reiterates the European Parliament’s calls for this to be “legally binding”, however, the European Parliament, Amnesty International and others have recently highlighted significant limitations to the EU’s Code of Conduct for Arms Exports, which some EU countries have erroneously claimed would serve as a safeguard in the event of the embargo on China being lifted. Moreover China has identified the lifting of the arms embargo as a significant component of its EU China strategy published in October 2003. To remove the arms embargo before securing a significant and substantive improvement in human rights in China and Tibet would be an unparalleled error.The Coalition holds that it is erroneous for the EU to allow the resumption of weapons sales to China solely on the basis of strengthening its own Code of Conduct and its bilateral human rights dialogues. China must first make significant improvements to its human rights situation before the arms embargo should be lifted. Maintaining the embargo also has a positive symbolic value for pro-democracy activists, political prisoners, ethnic minorities and all those who are not resigned to the Chinese Communist Party’s dictatorship.Yours sincerely,The European Coalition Against the Lifting the EU’s Embargo on Weapons Sales to China, consisting of:- Reporters Sans Frontières- International Society for Human Rights (IGFM/ISHR)- International Campaign for Tibet – Laogai Research Foundation – Harry Wu- Chinese Democratic Party Overseas Exiles Headquaters – Xu Wenli- Olympic Watch – Solidarité Chine- World Uyghur Congress- Save Tibet, Austria- Les Amis du Tibet, Belgium- The Tibet Support Committee, Denmark- Students for a Free Tibet, Denmark- briançon05-urgence.tibet, France- France-Tibet, France- Tibet Support Group Ireland, Ireland- Associazione Italia-Tibet, Italy- Zida Cels, Latvia- Les Amis du Tibet, Luxembourg- Polish-Tibetan Friendship Association, Poland- Comite de Apoyo al Tibet, Spain- Swedish Tibet Committee, Sweden- Free Tibet Campaign, UK- Tibet Society, UK- Students for a Free Tibet, UK RSF_en Twenty-six organisations have urged the European Union, on the eve of its 8 December summit with China in The Hague, not to lift an arms embargo against China without a significant improvement in human rights in the country. Beijing would have to change its line on the pro-democracy demonstrations in Tiananmen Square, always termed by the authorities as counter-revolutionary incidents, and to release all of its political prisoners.
