ЕСПЧ: Турция ограничава свободата на политическите дебати

Post Syndicated from nellyo original https://nellyo.wordpress.com/2018/05/13/echr_10-3/

Европейският съд по правата на човека (ЕСПЧ) прие две важни решения по дела, заведени от двама видни журналисти, задържани в Турция след опита за държавен преврат от 15 юли 2016 г. И в двата случая –  Mehmet Hasan Altan v. Turkey и  Şahin Alpay v. Turkey – съдът установява нарушение на  правото на свободно изразяване на мнение (чл.10 ЕКПЧ).

Мехмет Хасан Алтан и Шахин Алпай са известни с критичните си виждания за политиката на правителството. Двамата журналисти са арестувани   от лятото на 2016 г. и са обвинени въз основа на писани от тях статии и публични  изявления, в опит за промяна на конституционния ред от името на терористична организация. Мехмет Хасан Алтан  е осъден на  доживотен затвор.

ЕСПЧ пояснява, че съществуването на извънредна ситуация не може да служи като претекст за ограничаване на свободата на политическите дебати, която е в основата на концепцията за демократично общество. Дори в извънредно положение  държавите – страни по Конвенцията трябва да  положат всички усилия за опазване на ценностите на едно демократично общество като плурализъм, толерантност и свобода на изразяване.

Задържането  и наказателното преследване на журналистите неизбежно имат смразяващ ефект върху свободата на изразяване чрез сплашване на гражданското общество и заглушаване на несъгласните гласове в Турция.

Според ЕСПЧ изразените мнения, които не представляват подбуждане към насилие, не са свързани с извършването на терористични актове  и не насърчават насилието, не трябва да бъдат ограничавани.

ЕСПЧ смята, че една от основните характеристики на демокрацията е възможността за решаване на проблеми чрез публични дебати и че демокрацията изисква свобода  на изразяване. Критиките към правителството и публикуването на информация, разглеждана от лидерите на дадена държава като застрашаваща националните интереси, не бива да са основание за наказателни обвинения в тероризъм или разпространение  на терористична пропаганда.

Нарушение на член 10 от ЕКПЧ.

Build a solar-powered nature camera for your garden

Spring has sprung, and with it, sleepy-eyed wildlife is beginning to roam our gardens and local woodlands. So why not follow hackster.io maker reichley’s tutorial and build your own solar-powered squirrelhouse nature cam?

“I live half a mile above sea level and am SURROUNDED by animals…bears, foxes, turkeys, deer, squirrels, birds”, reichley explains in his tutorial. “Spring has arrived, and there are LOADS of squirrels running around. I was in the building mood and, being a nerd, wished to combine a common woodworking project with the connectivity and observability provided by single-board computers (and their camera add-ons).”

Building a tiny home

reichley started by sketching out a design for the house to determine where the various components would fit.

Since he’s fan of autonomy and renewable energy, he decided to run the project’s Raspberry Pi Zero W via solar power. To do so, he reiterated the design to include the necessary tech, scaling the roof to fit the panels.

To keep the project running 24/7, reichley had to figure out the overall power consumption of both the Zero W and the Raspberry Pi Camera Module, factoring in the constant WiFi connection and the sunshine hours in his garden.

He used a LiPo SHIM to bump up the power to the required 5V for the Zero. Moreover, he added a BH1750 lux sensor to shut off the LiPo SHIM, and thus the Pi, whenever it’s too dark for decent video.

To control the project, he used Calin Crisan’s motionEyeOS video surveillance operating system for single-board computers.

Build your own nature camera

To build your own version, follow reichley’s tutorial, in which you can also find links to all the necessary code and components. You can also check out our free tutorial for building an infrared bird box using the Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera Module. As Eben said in our YouTube live Q&A last week, we really like nature cameras here at Pi Towers, and we’d love to see yours. So if you have any live-stream links or photography from your Raspberry Pi–powered nature cam, please share them with us!

Big Birthday Weekend 2018: find a Jam near you!

Post Syndicated from Ben Nuttall original https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/big-birthday-weekend-2018-find-a-jam-near-you/

We’re just over three weeks away from the Raspberry Jam Big Birthday Weekend 2018, our community celebration of Raspberry Pi’s sixth birthday. Instead of an event in Cambridge, as we’ve held in the past, we’re coordinating Raspberry Jam events to take place around the world on 3–4 March, so that as many people as possible can join in. Well over 100 Jams have been confirmed so far.

Raspberry Pi Big Birthday Weekend Jam

Find a Jam near you

There are Jams planned in Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Canada, Colombia, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, and Zimbabwe.

Take a look at the events map and the full list (including those who haven’t added their event to the map quite yet).

We will have Raspberry Jams in 35 countries across six continents

Birthday kits

We had some special swag made especially for the birthday, including these T-shirts, which we’ve sent to Jam organisers:

There is also a poster with a list of participating Jams, which you can download:

Raspberry Jam photo booth

I created a Raspberry Jam photo booth that overlays photos with the Big Birthday Weekend logo and then tweets the picture from your Jam’s account — you’ll be seeing plenty of those if you follow the #PiParty hashtag on 3–4 March.

Check out the project on GitHub, and feel free to set up your own booth, or modify it to your own requirements. We’ve included text annotations in several languages, and more contributions are very welcome.

There’s still time…

If you can’t find a Jam near you, there’s still time to organise one for the Big Birthday Weekend. All you need to do is find a venue — a room in a school or library will do — and think about what you’d like to do at the event. Some Jams have Raspberry Pis set up for workshops and practical activities, some arrange tech talks, some put on show-and-tell — it’s up to you. To help you along, there’s the Raspberry Jam Guidebook full of advice and tips from Jam organisers.

The packed. And they packed. And they packed some more. Who’s expecting one of these #rjam kits for the Raspberry Jam Big Birthday Weekend?

Download the Raspberry Jam branding pack, and the special birthday branding pack, where you’ll find logos, graphical assets, flyer templates, worksheets, and more. When you’re ready to announce your event, create a webpage for it — you can use a site like Eventbrite or Meetup — and submit your Jam to us so it will appear on the Jam map!

We are six

We’re really looking forward to celebrating our birthday with thousands of people around the world. Over 48 hours, people of all ages will come together at more than 100 events to learn, share ideas, meet people, and make things during our Big Birthday Weekend.

Since we released the first Raspberry Pi in 2012, we’ve sold 17 million of them. We’re also reaching almost 200000 children in 130 countries around the world through Code Club and CoderDojo, we’ve trained over 1500 Raspberry Pi Certified Educators, and we’ve sent code written by more than 6800 children into space. Our magazines are read by a quarter of a million people, and millions more use our free online learning resources. There’s plenty to celebrate and even more still to do: we really hope you’ll join us from a Jam near you on 3–4 March.
