New Mandela tapestry for airport

first_img17 December 2015In honour of Nelson Mandela, a giant tapestry has been unveiled at Cape Town International Airport, according to Amnesty International.Measuring approximately six by three metres, and called Flying Madiba, the work of art was designed by acclaimed Czech artist Peter Sis and woven by Atelier Pinton in Aubusson, France. It is on display at the airport’s international arrivals hall, and was installed on 10 December 2015 to mark International Human Rights Day.“This tapestry is a fitting tribute to Nelson Mandela, a champion of human rights across the world,” said Bill Shipsey, Art for Amnesty’s founder. “It will provide a constant reminder to the millions of people passing through the Cape Town International airport about his legacy, not only for South Africa but for the world.”According to Amnesty International, the tapestry was generously backed and funded by musicians and artists such as Bono and The Edge of the band U2, John Legend, Peter Gabriel, Sting and Yoko Ono.“Madiba sacrificed his own freedom to see a better world for everyone,” said Muleya Mwananyanda, Amnesty International’s deputy director for Southern Africa. “With this tapestry, we are honouring his sacrifices and hoping that he will be remembered forever.”Mandela received Amnesty International’s most prestigious award, the Ambassador of Conscience Award, in 2006.“The tapestry will take pride of place in our International Arrivals Hall. It will be the final piece of a broader ambience programme in that area which already has various elements creating a sense of place,” said Deidre Davids, the manager for communications and brand at the airport.‘Explore philosophy that places our problems in an international and historical context’ – Nelson Mandela.— Art for Amnesty (@Art4Amnesty) December 6, 2015Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world in which human rights are enjoyed by all.Source: Amnesty Internationallast_img read more

Nitish cracks down on stubble burning

first_imgChief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday expressed concern over the rising trend of farmers in Bihar setting agricultural residue on fire and warned the cultivators burning stubble that they will be deprived of the facilities provided by the State government. Underscoring the adverse impact of stubble burning on the environment, he instructed agriculture department officials to launch a campaign to end the practise. “Farmers burning stubble (crop residue) in their fields will be deprived of facilities being given by the State government,” Mr. Kumar said while inuagurating a two-day international conference on “Crop Residue Management” here. The event was organised jointly by the State’s Agriculture Department and Bihar Agriculture University, Sabour (Bhagalpur). The State government is providing every possible help to the farmers in the State, he said adding power is supplied to them at a rate of 75 paise per unit. In addition, the State is giving ₹60 as subsidy on every litre of diesel. Earlier, the practise of stubble burning was prevalent in Delhi and Punjab causing bad impact on Delhi’s environment, he said while adding that the custom has now gained prevalence in some parts of the State.‘Adverse impact’ “Farmers need to be convinced that stubble burning not only has its adverse impact on productivity but also has its effect on environment…Farmers need to be convinced that the proper use of stubble will increase their income too,” the Chief Minister said. Kisan Salahkars (agriculture advisors) and representatives from agricultural institutions should convince the farmers about the ill-effects of burning stubble/crop residue and create awareness among them against it, he said.last_img read more
