  • Le #HCR se félicite du soutien de 175 villes à travers le #monde entier en faveur des réfugiés

    A l’occasion de la Journée mondiale 2019 du réfugié, le HCR, l’Agence des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés, remercie les maires de dizaines de villes dans environ 50 pays d’avoir ajouté leur soutien à une déclaration mondiale d’accueil et d’inclusion pour les familles déracinées. Cette déclaration s’inscrit dans le cadre de l’initiative du HCR Cities#WithRefugees ou « Villes #Aveclesréfugiés », qui existe depuis un an et qui a été signée par près de 175 villes.

    Ce geste de #solidarité envers les réfugiés est d’autant plus important car, selon le rapport statistique annuel du HCR sur les Tendances mondiales publié hier, environ 61% des réfugiés et 80% des personnes déplacées internes vivent en milieu urbain. Les villes, les autorités locales et les municipalités jouent un rôle essentiel dans le soutien et l’accueil des réfugiés et d’autres personnes déplacées. Ils offrent la sécurité et un logement décent. Par ailleurs, ils peuvent permettre l’accès aux services locaux, à l’éducation et à des opportunités d’emploi.

    Dans l’ensemble, le rapport statistique annuel sur les Tendances mondiales montre que le nombre de personnes déracinées par la guerre, les conflits ou les persécutions a doublé ces 20 dernières années.

    Face à des niveaux toujours plus élevés de déplacement forcé - et parallèlement à des niveaux croissants de xénophobie dans le monde - des villes comme Paris en France, Montevideo en Uruguay, Lahore au Pakistan, Bucarest en Roumanie, Vancouver au Canada et Atlanta aux Etats-Unis appellent également d’autres maires et autorités locales à travers le monde à se joindre à eux dans leurs efforts concertés pour accueillir et inclure des réfugiés dans leurs communautés.

    « Les villes sont à l’avant-garde des nouvelles approches en matière d’accueil, d’inclusion et d’offre d’opportunités aux réfugiés », a déclaré Filippo Grandi, Haut Commissaire des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés. « J’ai une grande admiration pour ces maires, pour ces autorités locales et pour les habitants de ces villes qui oeuvrent en faveur de la solidarité. Nous attendons d’eux qu’ils défendent ces valeurs et qu’ils poursuivent cet important travail. »

    « Nous n’avons pas le luxe de faire de la politique car il nous faut que les choses fonctionnent, non seulement pour les nouveaux arrivants mais aussi pour les communautés établies dans nos villes. Ce que nous avons, c’est la capacité de réunir nos forces et des ressources différentes pour faire de l’inclusion une réalité – tout en mobilisant les contributions des secteurs public, privé et bénévole afin de trouver des solutions concrètes à nos défis les plus urgents », a déclaré Marvin Jonathan Rees, le maire de Bristol au Royaume-Uni et l’un des premiers signataires de l’initiative Cities #WithRefugees, pour décrire le rôle unique des dirigeants au niveau local.

    Au niveau mondial, le Pacte mondial sur les réfugiés, qui vise à mettre en œuvre une approche plus globale de la gestion des crises de réfugiés, reconnaît le rôle important des autorités locales en tant que premiers intervenants dans les situations de réfugiés à grande échelle. Le HCR organisera le tout premier Forum mondial sur les réfugiés en décembre 2019, qui sera l’occasion de catalyser des partenariats novateurs entre les secteurs et pour tous les acteurs concernés - gouvernements, société civile, secteur privé, organisations internationales et autres - afin de changer concrètement la vie des réfugiés et des communautés hôtes.

  • 2017 : 140,4 tonnes de cocaïne saisie dans l’union européenne Eric Steffens, Belga, 6 Mai 2019
    https://www.vrt.be/vrtnws/fr/2019/06/06/le-port-d_anvers-une-des-principales-portes-dentee-de-la-cocain

    Plus de 104.000 saisies de cocaïne ont été signalées dans l’UE en 2017 (contre 98.000 en 2016), pour un total de 140,4 tonnes, soit environ le double de la quantité saisie en 2016 (70,9 tonnes).

    La Belgique, avec 45 tonnes saisies en 2017, arrive en tête des pays d’Europe, devant l’Espagne (41 tonnes), la France (17,5 tonnes) et les Pays-Bas (14,6 tonnes).
"La cocaïne entre en Europe par de nombreux itinéraires et des moyens variés, mais la croissance du trafic de gros volumes dans des conteneurs de transport maritime constitue un défi majeur", expose l’agence européenne sur les drogues.
"Les niveaux estimés de pureté de la cocaïne vendue au détail sont les plus élevés qui aient été observés au cours de la décennie, ce qui tend également à indiquer une disponibilité accrue de cette drogue", ajoute l’agence.
    Anvers et Amsterdam, mais aussi Bristol ou Barcelone, figurent parmi les villes d’Europe où sont décelées les plus grandes quantités de résidus de cocaïne dans leurs eaux usées.

    Le trafic de cocaïne apparait en outre de plus en plus concurrentiel, avec des groupes de petite taille et des individus qui se servent de plus en plus des médias sociaux, des marchés du « darknet » et des techniques de chiffrement.

    « Sur le marché de la cocaïne, l’esprit d’entreprise se manifeste au travers de méthodes de distribution innovantes : des ’centres d’appel’ emploient des coursiers qui assurent une livraison rapide et flexible. Ces méthodes, reflets d’une possible ’ubérisation’ du commerce de la cocaïne, illustrent le caractère compétitif du marché, au sein duquel les revendeurs rivalisent en proposant des services allant au-delà du produit proprement dit », analyse l’Observatoire.

    Quant à l’héroïne, la quantité saisie dans l’UE a augmenté de plus d’une tonne en 2017 pour atteindre 5,4 tonnes. Une préoccupation croissante concerne les opioïdes de synthèse, dont onze nouveaux types ont été détectés en Europe en 2018.

    Le cannabis, lui, est désormais la substance que les nouveaux patients admis dans les services spécialisés de traitement pour usage de drogues citent le plus souvent comme raison principale de leur prise de contact.
Concernant les drogues de synthèse, 21 laboratoires de MDMA - le principe actif de l’ecstasy - ont été démantelés dans l’UE, contre 11 en 2016, tous aux Pays-Bas. Un déversement de produits chimiques suggérant la production de MDMA a été signalé en Belgique.

    Les dernières données montrent que la teneur en MDMA des comprimés d’ecstasy a atteint un pic décennal en 2017, avec une estimation de 6,6 millions de comprimés de MDMA saisis dans l’UE, soit le chiffre le plus élevé depuis 2007.

    Les données disponibles indiquent également que la production d’amphétamine se concentre principalement en #Belgique, aux #Pays-Bas et en #Pologne ainsi que, dans une moindre mesure, dans les #États_baltes et en #Allemagne.

  • Le manuscrit de Voynich déchiffré (si, si)

    https://m.phys.org/news/2019-05-bristol-academic-voynich-code-century-old.html

    What it reveals is even more amazing than the myths and fantasies it has generated. For example, the manuscript was compiled by Dominican nuns as a source of reference for Maria of Castile, Queen of Aragon, who happens to have been great aunt to Catherine of Aragon.

    The manuscript is written in proto-Romance—ancestral to today’s Romance languages including Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, Romanian, Catalan and Galician. The language used was ubiquitous in the Mediterranean during the Medieval period, but it was seldom written in official or important documents because Latin was the language of royalty, church and government. As a result, proto-Romance was lost from the record, until now.

  • L’extraction de pierres de taille de Stonehenge datent de 5000 ans BP.
    L’étude explique pourquoi les hommes de cette époque ont été cherchés des pierre aussi lointaine et remet aussi en cause une théorie populaire sur le transport de ces pierres.

    Les fouilles dans deux carrières du pays de Galles, connues pour être à l’origine des « pierres bleues » de Stonehenge, fournissent de nouvelles preuves de l’exploitation de mégalithes il y a 5 000 ans, selon une nouvelle étude menée par l’UCL.

    Les géologues savent depuis longtemps que 42 des plus petites pierres de Stonehenge, appelées « pierres bleues », proviennent des collines Preseli dans le Pembrokeshire, dans l’ouest du pays de Galles. Maintenant, une nouvelle étude publiée dans l’Antiquité identifie l’emplacement exact de deux de ces carrières et révèle quand et comment les pierres ont été extraites.
    (...)

    Le professeur Mike Parker Pearson (Archéologie de l’UCL) et chef de l’équipe a déclaré : "Ce qui est vraiment excitant à propos de ces découvertes, c’est qu’elles nous rapprochent de la solution du plus grand mystère de Stonehenge : pourquoi ses pierres sont venues de si loin ?"

    "Tous les autres monuments néolithiques en Europe ont été construits avec des mégalithes ramenés à moins de 15 km. Nous cherchons maintenant à savoir ce qui était si spécial dans les collines de Preseli il y a 5 000 ans et s’il y avait des cercles de pierre importants ici, construits avant que les pierres bleues ne soient transférées à Stonehenge. "

    La plus grande carrière a été découverte à près de 300 km de Stonehenge sur le piton de Carn Goedog, sur le versant nord des collines de Preseli.

    "C’était la source dominante de la dolérite tachetée de Stonehenge, ainsi nommée car elle présente des taches blanches dans la roche bleue ignée. Au moins cinq pierres bleues de Stonehenge, et probablement plus, proviennent de Carn Goedog", a déclaré le géologue Richard Bevins (Musée national du pays de Galles).

    Dans la vallée en aval de Carn Goedog, un autre affleurement à Craig Rhos-y-felin a été identifié par le Dr Bevins et son confrère géologue, le Dr Rob Ixer (UCL Archaeology), à l’origine d’un type de rhyolite (...) trouvé à Stonehenge.

    Selon la nouvelle étude, les affleurements de pierre bleue sont formés de piliers naturels et verticaux.

    [Cf. photo dans l’étude originale : https://www.cambridge.org/core/services/aop-cambridge-core/content/view/AAF715CC586231FFFCC18ACB871C9F5E/S0003598X18001114a.pdf/megalith_quarries_for_stonehenges_bluestones.pdf)

    Celles-ci pourraient être extraites de la paroi en écartant les joints verticaux entre chaque pilier. Contrairement aux carrières de pierre de l’Égypte ancienne, où les obélisques étaient taillés dans le roc, les carrières galloises étaient plus faciles à exploiter.

    Les ouvriers des carrières néolithiques n’avaient besoin que d’insérer des cales dans les joints entre les piliers, puis de basculer chaque pilier au pied de l’affleurement.

    Bien que la plupart de leurs équipements soient probablement constitués de cordes périssables, de cales en bois, de maillets et de leviers, ils ont laissé d’autres outils tels que des marteaux, des pierres et des cales.

    « Les cales en pierre sont faites de mudstone importé, beaucoup plus doux que les piliers durs en dolérite. Un collègue ingénieur a suggéré que le fait de marteler un coin dur aurait pu créer des fractures de contrainte, provoquant la fissuration des minces piliers. (...) » a déclaré le professeur Parker Pearson.

    Des fouilles archéologiques au pied des deux affleurements ont mis à jour les vestiges de plates-formes en pierre et en terre fabriquées par l’homme, le bord extérieur de chaque plate-forme se terminant par une chute verticale d’environ un mètre.

    « Les piliers de la pierre bleue pourraient être basculés sur cette plate-forme, qui servait de plate-forme de chargement pour les charger sur des luges en bois avant de les traîner », a déclaré le professeur Colin Richards (Université des Highlands and Islands) (...).

    L’équipe du professeur Parker Pearson avait pour objectif important de dater les carrières de mégalithes sur les deux affleurements. Dans les sédiments mous d’une piste évidée menant du quai de chargement à Craig Rhos-y-felin et sur la plate-forme artificielle de Carn Goedog, l’équipe a récupéré des morceaux de charbon datant de 3000 ans av. notre ère.

    L’équipe pense maintenant que Stonehenge était à l’origine un cercle de piliers bruts en pierre de pierre bleue dans des fosses connues sous le nom d’Aubrey Holes, près de Stonehenge, et que les sarsens (blocs de grès) ont été ajoutés environ 500 ans plus tard.

    Les nouvelles découvertes remettent également en cause une théorie populaire selon laquelle les pierres bleues auraient été transportées par mer à Stonehenge.

    « Certaines personnes pensent que les pierres bleues ont été transportées vers le sud jusqu’à Milford Haven, puis placées sur des radeaux ou suspendues entre des bateaux, puis ont remonté le canal de Bristol et longé le Bristol Avon en direction de la plaine de Salisbury. Mais ces carrières se trouvent du côté nord des collines de Preseli. Les mégalithes auraient simplement pu aller par voie de terre jusqu’à la plaine de Salisbury », a déclaré la professeure Kate Welham (Université de Bournemouth).

  • Des transsexuelLEs interviennent : APPEL AU LOBBY TRANS

    _Un groupe de transsexuelLEs vient de publier une lettre ouverte dans le Times de Londres où iels remettent en question la représentativité des activistes qui agressent des femmes « en leur nom » et les appellent à cesser d’agresser des femmes :
    En tant que personnes transsexuelles, nous sommes consternées par l’escalade du harcèlement, des menaces et des agressions infligés à des femmes et à des groupes de femmes au nom d’un « activisme pour les droits des transgenres » (« Trans lobby sent me death threats, claims professor », TIMES, 6 décembre, http://bit.ly/2QktcVn)._
    Au cours des dernières années, la rhétorique violente utilisée dans les médias sociaux a trop souvent débordé dans la vie réelle. Après le harcèlement de Julie Bindel et de la Working Class Movement Library, l’agression physique de Maria Maclachlan et l’utilisation récente de tactiques de « port de masques » pour contrer une assemblée féministe à Bristol, nous trouvons horrifiantes les méthodes d’intimidation et d’agression dirigées contre Rosa Freedman, spécialiste des droits de la personne (et enseignante à l’Université de Reading qui a reçu des menaces de mort et de viol et dont on a uriné sur la porte de son bureau).

  • TIM MAUGHAN « FUTUR INCERTAIN »
    https://laspirale.org/texte-585-tim-maughan-%C2%A0futur-incertain.html
    https://laspirale.org/texte-585-tim-maughan- futur-incertain.html

    Originaire de Bristol, la ville de Massive Attack, Roni Size, Portishead et The Pop Group, #Tim_Maughan s’est fait repérer en 2011 suite à l’auto-édition de Paintwork, son premier recueil de nouvelles qui projetait les cultures de rue dans un futur proche, hanté par les technologies de l’information et la robotique.

    Un succès d’estime qui lui valut d’écrire pour Vice et surtout pour la BBC, occasion d’un voyage impressionnant aux confins de l’Asie avec les architectes nomades de l’Unknown Field Division.

    Maughan se prépare à contaminer les linéaires des libraires anglo-saxonnes au mois de mars 2019, avec Infinite Details. Un premier roman qui s’annonce déjà passionnant, entre contre-culture et dystopie post-numérique, dont l’atmosphère évoque le double héritage de William Gibson et de J.G. Ballard.

    C’est avec un grand intérêt que j’ai lu les articles que vous écriviez pour le site de la BBC, notamment ceux qui relataient votre voyage de trois semaines aux côtés de l’Unknown Field Division. Autant de visions inquiétantes. Est-ce que cette aventure a changé votre manière de voir le monde et d’envisager la vie ?

    Oui, ça fait partie de ces expériences qui changent une vie. Sans exagération, ni hyperbole. Depuis mon adolescence, j’avais une vision particulière du monde et, si ce voyage ne l’a pas radicalement changée, il l’a ouverte d’un tas de manières différentes et dirigée sur des voies nouvelles. J’ai maintenant la tête pleine de visions incroyables et d’obsessions. Celles-ci se focalisent à présent sur la complexité et l’automation, sur la manière dont nous faisons tous partie d’un vaste système qu’il nous est impossible de comprendre et encore moins de contrôler. Les chaînes d’approvisionnement et de transport, les marchés financiers, les économies mondiales, internet, les réseaux sociaux, la publicité… la liste est longue. Tous ces réseaux sont vastes, complexes et principalement semi-autonomes. Ils prennent des décisions qui affectent directement nos vies, d’une manière qui nous dépasse, sans jamais nous consulter.

    La conséquence indirecte de cette incapacité à comprendre le monde dans lequel est un vide démocratique. Ne comprenant et ne contrôlant pas plus que nous cette situation, les politiciens s’inventent des narrations et remplissent ce vide de débats sans intérêt, tout au plus du divertissement, ou s’acharnent à stigmatiser des communautés marginales. Je suis convaincu que tout ceci a contribué pour beaucoup à l’élection de Trump, au vote du Brexit, à la montée de l’extrême-droite en Europe, etc.

  • Attribuée à 1,2 million d’euros, une œuvre de Banksy s’autodétruit en pleine vente
    https://abonnes.lemonde.fr/arts/article/2018/10/06/attribuee-a-1-2-million-d-euros-une-uvre-de-banksy-se-detruit-en-ple ?

    Du Banksy tout craché. Une toile du street-artiste britannique s’est partiellement auto-détruite, vendredi 5 octobre, devant un public médusé juste après avoir été vendue aux enchères pour 1,2 million d’euros chez Sotheby’s à Londres. « On dirait qu’on vient de se faire “Bankser” », a réagi Alex Branczik, un responsable de la maison d’enchères américaine, dans un communiqué.

    Banksy a mis en ligne, samedi soir, une vidéo explicative sur son compte Instagram, accompagnée d’une citation attribuée à Picasso — « quel plaisir que de détruire pour recommencer ».

    « Il y a quelques années j’avais en secret incorporé une déchiqueteuse à papier dans la peinture, pour le cas où elle serait mise aux enchères », explique-t-il dans un texte superposé aux images d’un homme insérant l’appareil dans les dorures du cadre.

    Une bonne affaire

    Alors que la presse britannique spécialisée s’interrogeait également sur une éventuelle complicité de Sotheby’s, Alex Branczik, cité par le site The Art Newspaper, a assuré ne pas avoir été averti du canular, la maison d’enchères restant de son côté injoignable samedi pour commenter plus avant cet « incident inattendu ».

    L’acheteur du tableau, contacté par la maison de vente, s’est dit « surpris » de la tournure des événements. Mais si la destruction de l’œuvre aurait pu mener à l’annulation de la vente, comme cela se ferait habituellement, l’opération est en réalité une bonne affaire, selon une analyse du Financial Times :

    « Il se pourrait que le tableau broyé prenne de la valeur, considérant qu’il est devenu l’objet de l’un des meilleurs canulars jamais organisés sur le marché de l’art. »

    Il s’agit, quoi qu’il en soit, d’un montant de vente (1,042 million de livres, soit près de 1,2 million d’euros) qui atteint le niveau du record de l’artiste, réalisé lors d’une vente aux enchères en 2008, selon Sotheby’s.

    Cette vente devrait encore renforcer la « mythologie Banksy », graffeur et peintre de Bristol (sud-ouest d’Angleterre), qui se plaît à garder son identité secrète. L’artiste s’est fait connaître pour son art urbain ironique et engagé, et certaines de ses créations ont été vendues aux enchères pour des sommes vertigineuses. Il a récemment réagi au Brexit sur un mur de Douvres, au Royaume-Uni, avec la fresque d’un homme en train de casser une étoile du drapeau européen à coups de burin.

  • Wetherspoon, TGI Fridays and McDonalds staff join forces to strike in unprecedented day of action

    They are fighting for £10 an hour wages and union recognition

    https://inews.co.uk/inews-lifestyle/work/wetherspoons-mcdonalds-staff-strike-together-poverty-wages-tgi-fridays

    Workers from two of the biggest chains in the UK will be striking in a national day of action for better working conditions and more pay.

    McDonald’s and JD Wetherspoon staff will join forces on 4 October to fight for £10 an hour wages and union recognition in several branches across London and Brighton, an unprecedented action in the fast food industry.

    As it stands, the minimum starting rate for bar staff at JD Wetherspoons over 18 is £8.05 an hour, while kitchen staff receive £8.25 an hour. They receive an extra 10p an hour after they pass their probation period.

      https://libcom.org/news/iww-couriers-network-why-were-striking-october-4th-01102018

      The IWW Courier Network has called for a UK-wide strike of food delivery couriers on October 4th. Cities confirmed to be taking part so far include London, Glasgow, Cardiff, Bristol, Newcastle and Plymouth. Couriers in other cities are currently in discussion about joining the action.

      There are a lot of questions to be answered about the gig economy. Employment rights, job security, transparency. But for now, we’re focused on what matters most to the workers on the ground: Pay and safety.

      As it stands, cyclists, drivers, and scooter riders across the UK are delivering food with no guarantee of hitting at least national minimum wage. We can earn as low as £2.80 per delivery, with no guarantee of making enough deliveries in an hour to earn a decent living. And even national minimum wage, for a self-employed courier, wouldn’t pay enough to cover holidays, sickness, or vehicle maintenance.

  • ’Sexist’ Tui Airways crew gave different badges to girls and boys | World news | The Guardian
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/aug/22/sexist-tui-airways-crew-gave-different-badges-to-girls-and-boys

    Tui Airways is at the centre of a sexism row after flight attendants were accused of handing out stickers to children that encouraged girls to be cabin crew and boys to be pilots.

    A passenger on board a flight from Cyprus to Bristol said stickers were handed to boys that read “future pilot” while girls were given ones that read “future cabin crew”.

    Dame Gillian Morgan, 56, a doctor and scientist who saw the stickers being handed out on a flight from Bristol to Cyprus, said the act was “deeply sexist”.

    • New figures reveal at least 449 homeless deaths in UK in the last year

      On the streets, in a hospital, a hostel or a B&B: across the UK the deaths of people without a home have gone unnoticed.

      Tonight we’re attempting to shed new light on a hidden tragedy.

      Research by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism suggests at least 449 homeless people have died in the UK in the last year – at least 65 of them on the streets.

      The homeless charity Crisis says the figures are “deeply shocking”. They want such deaths to be better investigated and recorded.

    • “A national scandal”: 449 people died homeless in the last year

      A grandmother who made potted plant gardens in shop doorways, found dead in a car park. A 51-year-old man who killed himself the day before his temporary accommodation ran out. A man who was tipped into a bin lorry while he slept.

      These tragic stories represent just a few of at least 449 people who the Bureau can today reveal have died while homeless in the UK in the last 12 months - more than one person per day.

      After learning that no official body counted the number of homeless people who have died, we set out to record all such deaths over the course of one year. Working with local journalists, charities and grassroots outreach groups to gather as much information as possible, the Bureau has compiled a first-of-its-kind database which lists the names of the dead and more importantly, tells their stories.

      The findings have sparked outrage amongst homeless charities, with one expert calling the work a “wake-up call to see homelessness as a national emergency”.

      Our investigation has prompted the Office for National Statistics to start producing its own figure on homeless deaths.

      We found out about the deaths of hundreds of people, some as young as 18 and some as old as 94. They included a former soldier, a quantum physicist, a travelling musician, a father of two who volunteered in his community, and a chatty Big Issue seller. The true figure is likely to be much higher.

      Some were found in shop doorways in the height of summer, others in tents hidden in winter woodland. Some were sent, terminally ill, to dingy hostels, while others died in temporary accommodation or hospital beds. Some lay dead for hours, weeks or months before anyone found them. Three men’s bodies were so badly decomposed by the time they were discovered that forensic testing was needed to identify them.

      They died from violence, drug overdoses, illnesses, suicide and murder, among other reasons. One man’s body showed signs of prolonged starvation.

      “A national disgrace”

      Charities and experts responded with shock at the Bureau’s findings. Howard Sinclair, St Mungo’s chief executive, said: “These figures are nothing short of a national scandal. These deaths are premature and entirely preventable.”

      “This important investigation lays bare the true brutality of our housing crisis,” said Polly Neate, CEO of Shelter. “Rising levels of homelessness are a national disgrace, but it is utterly unforgivable that so many homeless people are dying unnoticed and unaccounted for.”
      “This important investigation lays bare the true brutality of our housing crisis"

      Our data shows homeless people are dying decades younger than the general population. The average age of the people whose deaths we recorded was 49 for men and 53 for women.

      “We know that sleeping rough is dangerous, but this investigation reminds us it’s deadly,” said Jon Sparkes, chief executive of Crisis. “Those sleeping on our streets are exposed to everything from sub-zero temperatures, to violence and abuse, and fatal illnesses. They are 17 times more likely to be a victim of violence, twice as likely to die from infections, and nine times more likely to commit suicide.”

      The Bureau’s Dying Homeless project has sparked widespread debate about the lack of data on homeless deaths.

      Responding to our work, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has now confirmed that it will start compiling and releasing its own official estimate - a huge step forward.

      For months the ONS has been analysing and cross-checking the Bureau’s database to create its own methodology for estimating homeless deaths, and plans to produce first-of-their-kind statistics in December this year.

      A spokesperson said the information provided by the Bureau “helps us develop the most accurate method of identifying all the deaths that should be counted.”
      Naming the dead

      Tracking homeless deaths is a complex task. Homeless people die in many different circumstances in many different places, and the fact they don’t have a home is not recorded on death certificates, even if it is a contributing factor.

      There are also different definitions of homelessness. We used the same definition as that used by homeless charity Crisis; it defines someone as homeless if they are sleeping rough, or in emergency or temporary accommodation such as hostels and B&Bs, or sofa-surfing. In Northern Ireland, we were only able to count the deaths of people registered as officially homeless by the Housing Executive, most of whom were in temporary accommodation while they waited to be housed.

      For the past nine months we have attended funerals, interviewed family members, collected coroners’ reports, spoken to doctors, shadowed homeless outreach teams, contacted soup kitchens and hostels and compiled scores of Freedom of Information requests. We have scoured local press reports and collaborated with our Bureau Local network of regional journalists across the country. In Northern Ireland we worked with The Detail’s independent journalism team to find deaths there.

      Of the 449 deaths in our database, we are able to publicly identify 138 people (we withheld the identity of dozens more at the request of those that knew them).

      Of the cases in which we were able to find out where people died, more than half of the deaths happened on the streets.

      These included mother-of-five Jayne Simpson, who died in the doorway of a highstreet bank in Stafford during the heatwave of early July. In the wake of her death the local charity that had been working with her, House of Bread, started a campaign called “Everyone knows a Jayne”, to try to raise awareness of how easy it is to fall into homelessness.

      Forty-one-year-old Jean Louis Du Plessis also died on the streets in Bristol. He was found in his sleeping bag during the freezing weather conditions of Storm Eleanor. At his inquest the coroner found he had been in a state of “prolonged starvation”.

      Russell Lane was sleeping in an industrial bin wrapped in an old carpet when it was tipped into a rubbish truck in Rochester in January. He suffered serious leg and hip injuries and died nine days later in hospital. He was 48 years old.

      In other cases people died while in temporary accommodation, waiting for a permanent place to call home. Those included 30-year-old John Smith who was found dead on Christmas Day, in a hostel in Chester.

      Or James Abbott who killed himself in a hotel in Croydon in October, the day before his stay in temporary accommodation was due to run out. A report from Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group said: “He [Mr Abbott] said his primary need was accommodation and if this was provided he would not have an inclination to end his life.” We logged two other suicides amongst the deaths in the database.

      Many more homeless people were likely to have died unrecorded in hospitals, according to Alex Bax, CEO of Pathways, a homeless charity that works inside several hospitals across England. “Deaths on the street are only one part of the picture,” he said. “Many homeless people also die in hospital and with the right broad response these deaths could be prevented.”

      Rising levels of homelessness

      The number of people sleeping rough has doubled in England and Wales in the last five years, according to the latest figures, while the number of people classed as officially homeless has risen by 8%.

      In Scotland the number of people applying to be classed as homeless rose last year for the first time in nine years. In Northern Ireland the number of homeless people rose by a third between 2012 and 2017.

      Analysis of government figures also shows the number of people housed in bed and breakfast hotels in England and Wales increased by a third between 2012 and 2018, with the number of children and pregnant women in B&Bs and hostels rising by more than half.

      “Unstable and expensive private renting, crippling welfare cuts and a severe lack of social housing have created this crisis,” said Shelter’s Neate. “To prevent more people from having to experience the trauma of homelessness, the government must ensure housing benefit is enough to cover the cost of rents, and urgently ramp up its efforts to build many more social homes.”

      The sheer scale of people dying due to poverty and homelessness was horrifying, said Crisis chief executive Sparkes.“This is a wake-up call to see homelessness as a national emergency,” he said.

      Breaking down the data

      Across our dataset, 69% of those that died were men and 21% were women (for the remaining 10% we did not have their gender).

      For those we could identify, their ages ranged between 18 and 94.

      At least nine of the deaths we recorded over the year were due to violence, including several deaths which were later confirmed to be murders.

      Over 250 were in England and Wales, in part because systems to count in London are better developed than elsewhere in the UK.

      London was the location of at least 109 deaths. The capital has the highest recorded rough sleeper count in England, according to official statistics, and information on the well-being of those living homeless is held in a centralised system called CHAIN. This allowed us to easily record many of the deaths in the capital although we heard of many others deaths in London that weren’t part of the CHAIN data.

      In Scotland, we found details of 42 people who died in Scotland in the last year, but this is likely a big underestimate. Many of the deaths we registered happened in Edinburgh, while others were logged from Glasgow, the Shetland Islands and the Outer Hebrides.
      “We know that sleeping rough is dangerous, but this investigation reminds us it’s deadly”

      Working with The Detail in Northern Ireland, we found details of 149 people who died in the country. Most died while waiting to be housed by the country’s Housing Executive - some may have been in leased accommodation while they waited, but they were officially classed as homeless.

      “Not only will 449 families or significant others have to cope with their loss, they will have to face the injustice that their loved one was forced to live the last days of their life without the dignity of a decent roof over their head, and a basic safety net that might have prevented their death,” Sparkes from Crisis. No one deserves this.”

      A spokesperson from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government said:

      “Every death of someone sleeping rough on our streets is one too many and we take this matter extremely seriously.

      “We are investing £1.2bn to tackle all forms of homelessness, and have set out bold plans backed by £100m in funding to halve rough sleeping by 2022 and end it by 2027."

    • Homelessness kills: Study finds third of homeless people die from treatable conditions

      Nearly a third of homeless people die from treatable conditions, meaning hundreds of deaths could potentially have been prevented, a major new study shows.

      The research by University College London (UCL), which was exclusively shared with the Bureau, also shows that homeless people are much more likely to die from certain conditions than even the poorest people who have a place to live.

      The findings come as the final count from our Dying Homeless project shows an average of 11 homeless people a week have died in the UK in the last 18 months. We have been collecting data dating back to October 2017 and telling the stories of those who have died on the streets or in temporary accommodation; our tally now stands at 796 people. Of those people we know the age of, more than a quarter were under 40 when then they died.

      While many might assume hypothermia or drug and alcohol overdoses kill the majority of homeless people, this latest research by UCL shows that in fact most homeless people die from illnesses. Nearly a third of the deaths explored by UCL were from treatable illnesses like tuberculosis, pneumonia or gastric ulcers which could potentially have improved with the right medical care.

      In February 2018, 48-year old Marcus Adams died in hospital after suffering from tuberculosis. The same year, 21 year old Faiza died in London, reportedly of multi-drug resistant pulmonary tuberculosis. Just before Christmas in 2017, 48-year-old former soldier Darren Greenfield died from an infection and a stroke in hospital. He had slept rough for years after leaving the army.

      “To know that so many vulnerable people have died of conditions that were entirely treatable is heartbreaking,” said Matthew Downie, Director of Policy and External Affairs at Crisis. The government should make sure all homeless deaths were investigated to see if lessons could be learned, he said.

      “But ultimately, 800 people dying homeless is unacceptable - we have the solutions to ensure no one has to spend their last days without a safe, stable roof over their head.
      “To know that so many vulnerable people have died of conditions that were entirely treatable is heartbreaking”

      “By tackling the root causes of homelessness, like building the number of social homes we need and making sure our welfare system is there to support people when they fall on hard times, governments in England, Scotland and Wales can build on the positive steps they’ve already taken to reduce and ultimately end homelessness.”
      Twice as likely to die of strokes

      Academics at UCL explored nearly 4,000 in-depth medical records for 600 people that died in English hospitals between 2013 and 2016 who were homeless when they were admitted. They compared them to the deaths of a similar group of people (in terms of age and sex) who had somewhere to live but were in the lowest socio-economic bracket.

      The research gives unprecedented insight into the range of medical causes of homeless deaths, and provides yet another reminder of how deadly homelessness is.

      The homeless group was disproportionately affected by cardiovascular disease, which includes strokes and heart disease. The researchers found homeless people were twice as likely to die of strokes as the poorest people who had proper accommodation.

      A fifth of the 600 deaths explored by UCL were caused by cancer. Another fifth died from digestive diseases such as intestinal obstruction or pancreatitis.

      Our database shows homeless people dying young from cancers, such as Istvan Kakas who died aged 52 in a hospice after battling leukaemia.

      Istvan, who sold The Big Issue, had received a heroism award from the local mayor after he helped save a man and his daughter from drowning. Originally from Hungary, he had previously worked as a chef under both Gordon Ramsay and Michael Caines.

      Rob Aldridge, lead academic on the UCL team, told the Bureau: “Our research highlights a failure of the health system to care for this vulnerable group in a timely and appropriate manner.”

      “We need to identify homeless individuals at risk earlier and develop models of care that enable them to engage with interventions proven to either prevent or improve outcomes for early onset chronic disease.”

      Of the deaths we have logged in the UK 78% were men, while 22% were female (of those where the gender was known). The average age of death for men was 49 years old and 53 years old for women.

      “It is easy for them to get lost in the system and forgotten about”
      The spread of tuberculosis

      In Luton, Paul Prosser from the NOAH welfare centre has seen a worrying prevalence of tuberculosis, particularly amongst the rough sleeping migrant community. A service visits the centre three times a year, screening for TB. “Last time they came they found eight people with signs of the illness, that’s really concerning,” said Prosser.

      “There are a lot of empty commercial properties in Luton and you find large groups of desperate homeless people, often migrants, squatting in them. It is easy for them to get lost in the system and forgotten about and then, living in such close quarters, that is when the infection can spread.”

      “When people dip in and out of treatment that is when they build a resistance to the drugs,” Prosser added. “Some of these people are leading chaotic lives and if they are not engaging that well with the treatment due to having nowhere to live then potentially that is when they become infectious.”

      One man NOAH was helping, Robert, died in mid-2017 after moving from Luton to London. The man, originally from Romania, had been suffering from TB for a long time but would only access treatment sporadically. He was living and working at a car-wash, as well as rough sleeping at the local airport.

      Making them count

      For the last year the Bureau has been logging the names and details of people that have died homeless since October 1, 2017. We started our count after discovering that no single body or organisation was recording if and when people were dying while homeless.

      More than 80 local news stories have been written about the work and our online form asking for details of deaths has been filled in more than 140 times.

      Our work and #MakeThemCount hashtag called for an official body to start collecting this vital data, and we were delighted to announce last October that the Office for National Statistics is now collating these figures. We opened up our database to ONS statisticians to help them develop their methodology.

      We also revealed that local authority reviews into homeless deaths, which are supposed to take place, were rarely happening. Several councils, including Brighton & Hove, Oxford, Malvern and Leeds have now said they will undertake their own reviews into deaths in their area, while others, such as Haringey, have put in place new measures to log how and when people die homeless.

      Councillor Emina Ibrahim, Haringey Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, told the Bureau: “The deaths of homeless people are frequently missed in formal reviews, with their lives unremembered. Our new procedure looks to change that and will play an important part in helping us to reduce these devastating and avoidable deaths.”

      Members of the public have also come together to remember those that passed away. In the last year there have been protests in Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester, memorial services in Brighton, Luton and London, and physical markers erected in Long Eaton and Northampton. Last week concerned citizens met in Oxford to discuss a spate of homeless deaths in the city.

      In a response to the scale of the deaths, homeless grassroots organisation Streets Kitchen are now helping to organise a protest and vigil which will take place later this week, in London and Manchester.

      After a year of reporting on this issue, the Bureau is now happy to announce we are handing over the counting project to the Museum of Homelessness, an organisation which archives, researches and presents information and stories on homelessness.
      “The sheer number of people who are dying whilst homeless, often avoidably, is a national scandal”

      The organisation’s co-founder Jess Turtle said they were honoured to be taking on this “massively important” work.

      “The sheer number of people who are dying whilst homeless, often avoidably, is a national scandal,” she said. “Museum of Homelessness will continue to honour these lives and we will work with our community to campaign for change as long as is necessary.”

      Matt Downie from Crisis said the Bureau’s work on the issue had achieved major impact. “As it comes to an end, it is difficult to overstate the importance of the Dying Homeless Project, which has shed new light on a subject that was ignored for too long,” he said. “It is an encouraging step that the ONS has begun to count these deaths and that the stories of those who have so tragically lost their lives will live on through the Museum of Homelessness.”

      The government has pledged to end rough sleeping by 2027, and has pledged £100m to try to achieve that goal, as part of an overall £1.2bn investment into tackling homelessness.

      “No one is meant to spend their lives on the streets, or without a home to call their own,” said Communities Secretary James Brokenshire. “Every death on our streets is too many and it is simply unacceptable to see lives cut short this way.”

      “I am also committed to ensuring independent reviews into the deaths of rough sleepers are conducted, where appropriate – and I will be holding local authorities to account in doing just that.”

    • Homeless Link responds to Channel 4 report on homeless deaths

      Today, The Bureau Investigative of Journalism released figures that revealed almost 800 people who are homeless have died over the last 18 months, which is an average of 11 every week. The report also shows that a third (30%) of the homeless deaths were from treatable conditions that could have improved with the right medical care.
      Many other deaths in the study, beyond that third, were from causes like suicide and homicide.

      Responding Rick Henderson, Chief Executive of Homeless Link, said: “These figures bring to light the shocking inequalities that people who experience homelessness face. People are dying on our streets and a significant number of them are dying from treatable or preventable health conditions.

      “We must address the fact that homelessness is a key health inequality and one of the causes of premature death. People who are experiencing homelessness struggle to access our health services. Core services are often too exclusionary or inflexible for people who are homeless with multiple and complex needs. This means people aren’t able to access help when they need it, instead being forced to use A&E to “patch up” their conditions before being discharged back to the streets. Services need to be accessible, for example by expanding walk-in primary care clinics or offering longer GP appointment times to deal with people experiencing multiple needs. We also need to expand specialist health services for people who are homeless to stop people falling through the gaps.

      “This research also highlights the other causes of death that people who are homeless are more likely to experience. Research shows that people who are homeless are over nine times more likely to take their own life than the general population and 17 times more likely to be the victims of violence.

      “Homeless Link is calling on the Government in its upcoming Prevention Green Paper to focus on addressing these inequalities, start to tackle the structural causes of homelessness, and make sure everyone has an affordable, healthy and safe place to call home and the support they need to keep it.”

  • La cocaïne dans les eaux usées a augmenté de 60% en un an à Genève RTS - Marc Renfer - 9 Mars 2018
    http://www.rts.ch/info/suisse/9395866-la-cocaine-dans-les-eaux-usees-a-augmente-de-60-en-un-an-a-geneve.html

    Cinq villes suisses se classent dans le « top 10 » des agglomérations où est consommé le plus de cocaïne par habitant en Europe. A Genève, la concentration de cette drogue dans les eaux usées a augmenté de plus de 60% en un an.

    Une étude de l’Observatoire européen des drogues et des toxicomanies (OEDT) publiée mercredi a analysé la concentration de résidus de drogues dans les eaux usées de 56 villes européennes. Et les grandes cités suisses occupent les premières places :

    Le « top 10 » des villes européennes accros à la cocaïne
    Quantité de cocaïne consommée quotidiennement, pour 1000 habitants (2017)

    Barcelone : 965mg
    Zurich : 934mg
    Anvers : 823mg
    Saint-Gall : 822mg
    Genève : 795mg
    Bristol : 755mg
    Amsterdam : 734mg
    Bâle : 563mg
    Berne : 528mg
    Dortmund : 462mg

    L’augmentation a été forte entre 2016 et 2017 en ville de Genève, avec une variation de +64%. La croissance dépasse même 80% à Saint-Gall.

    « Si on ne connaît pas les raisons exactes de cette augmentation, elle doit être en partie liée à la demande et à l’offre, mais sans doute aussi à la pureté », explique Frank Zobel, directeur adjoint d’Addiction Suisse. « En Suisse comme en Europe la cocaïne a eu tendance à devenir plus pure ces dernières années », précise-t-il.

    « Champions » de Suisse, les Zurichois augmentent particulièrement leur consommation en fin de semaine. Toutes les villes suisses suivent une courbe identique, qui indique que la quantité consommée commence à croître à partir du mercredi, jusqu’au pic du weekend.

    L’usage de MDMA se répand
    Autre substance recherchée, la MDMA, une molécule de la famille des amphétamines plus connue sous le nom d’ecstasy, est retrouvée dans des concentrations toujours plus élevées dans les égouts des villes suisses.

    Comme pour la cocaïne, les Zurichois sont les plus gros consommateurs. A Genève la croissance a été constante et a quasiment quintuplé depuis 2017.

    Des données prises sur une semaine
    Les eaux usées sont analysée durant une semaine et non pas de façon continue. Les données de l’enquête l’Observatoire européen des drogues et des toxicomanies ne sont donc pas annualisées.

    « Il peut exister des variations dues à la population présente », explique Frank Zobel, qui cite par exemple la tenue d’un évènement festif comme un potentiel perturbateur. « Mais l’augmentation que l’on observe dans de nombreuses villes d’Europe suggère que la consommation et la pureté de cette substance sont généralement en hausse »

    ANNULÉ, désolé Légende urbaine des cinémas alternatifs : il y aurait au moins une bobine de film porno qui traine dans un coin de chaque cabine de projection. Si le Nova remporte facilement la palme avec la collection ABC, le cinéma microplex The Cube à Bristol se distingue avec une incroyable panoplie de trailers Kung Fu ! Graeme Hogge, familier de la légendaire capitale musicale des 90’s, et l’un des piliers du Cube, sera aux platines pour accompagner ces bobines d’un genre frénético-ludique. Bristol style !
