Left Behind by Japan

The other victims of parental abduction and Japanese child custody laws

Left Behind by Japan - Clive V. France

Japan is the only G8 member not to have signed the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, a multilateral treaty “that provides an expeditious method to return a child internationally abducted from one member nation to another.” 

Japan’s failure to do so has placed it at the centre of a row over custody of children from failed international marriages and highlighted the issue of parental abduction. Japan has been described as a “black hole” for children abducted from overseas by their Japanese parents.


Glamour Gone

The Decline of the Airline Career

David Manning - The Decline of the Airline Career

The once-envied lifestyle of jet setting glamour that airline crew members enjoyed has become merely a job…one of disappointment, heartbreak, and loneliness. Reductions in pay, benefits, retirements, and increases in work days away from home have created careers which will give airlines difficulty recruiting and retaining talented people in the future.


Occupy DC

Duncan Hill - Occupy DC

In 2011, as uprisings unfolded all over the world, the United States saw the beginning of a new revolution. The recent economic recession still loomed in every American’s mind, though people hoped for a brighter future. To move forward, it became clear that drastic economic and social reform was necessary. The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement became a major voice for this reform and set out to confront corruption and encourage equality. Shortly after the OWS protests began in NYC, McPherson Square became the OWS headquarters in the nation’s capital, Washington, DC. Located on K Street, home to many of the lobbyists responsible for corporate corruption, McPherson Square was a symbolic location for Occupy DC to inhabit. From this hub, protestors established a cohesive community of hundreds, and organized rallies and marches for a variety of issues.

The unrecognized village of Al Arakib by Boaz Teitelbaum

Unrecognized Bedouin Villages: no electricity, no water, no sewage, no recognition.

Nearly half of the entire Bedouin population in the Negev – approximately 90,000 people – lives in 45 Bedouin villages that are unrecognized by the Israeli government. Despite being Israeli citizens, the state views the Bedouin residents of these villages as illegal squatters and does not provide them with basic services or infrastructure, including electricity, water, sewage systems, roads, schools or hospitals.

Marco Dal Maso - Neofascism

“You can not praise the sacrifice of yesterday, if you are not ready to tomorrow's” B. Mussolini

It has been said a lot about the new wave of black-shirt intolerance that has troubled Italy over the last few years. An ideology which has survived its charismatic leader often deprives itself of meaning because of misinterpretation or reduction to mere original principles.

Members of Salò Republic, troublemakers waiting for a coup, reactionary people... who are today's Italian right-wing extremists and what do they profess?

Since 1946 extreme right wing organizations have considerably increased, and young blood has broadened the number of their members.


Life On The Other Side

Olivier Chwaiki - Life On The Other Side

Life on the other side was shot in March 2012. It is a series about Haitian children refugees and their families on the other side of the border in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. The common thing that links these families together beside the fact that they all are Haitians, is that their children all study at the same school which is financed by a Quebecan ONG.

We Die For Football - Ultras Ahlawy

Ben Kilb - Ultras

Under authoritarian rule, stadiums were amongst a few places where Egyptians were free to express their own opinion. The Ultras Ahlawy, hardcore fans of Egypt's most famous football club Al Ahly Cairo, never made a secret of their hatred against the regime and clashed with state security prior to the Egyptian Revolution in early 2011. Thus, the Ultras were the only movement in Egypt who had combat experience with the regime. So they went to the front lines of the uprising. But the Ultras paid a price. In early February they were attacked in a stadium by angry masses. 74 people died, most of them Ahlawy. Until now, they blame remnants of the regime for seeking revenge for the Ultras’ role during the revolution by staging the riots. German photographer Ben Kilb followed the Ultras for 3 weeks.
