The federation had also warned the I-League clubs to refrain from publicly maligning the federation.Now, Chennai City FC for the first time has come out against the AIFF in open by sharing its letter to the football governing body in social media.“We wish to gently remind the national federation, that as the current I-League champions, we have been neither consulted not approached formally by the AIFF into a discussion with regard to the decision which we are informed will be announced post the AIFF Executive Committee meeting on July 3rd 2019,” Chennai City FC said in their statement.In their statement, Chennai City FC mentioned the controversial Masters Rights Agreement (MRA) agreement between AIFF and IMG-Reliance, according to which ISL is to be made the top league of the country.Chennai also reminded AIFF that they are yet to receive the prize money for winning the I-League. “We humbly remind you sir that as on this day, we are yet to receive the Prize Money from the AIFF for winning the 2018-19 I-League season and that any decision with regard to dissolve the I-League does not absolve the National Federation’s obligation from paying our Club the deserving Prize Money,” the statement read.They asked AIFF for a special invitation to the above mentioned Executive Committee meeting for all I-League clubs or at least themselves as the “Champions of the I-League”.“At this point on behalf of all I-League clubs we also humbly would like to inform you sir that we have never played the I-League in the expectation of earning profits from wining the I-League. The Travel Subsidy and Prize Money together are a definite cushion to our burdening expenses, however, not the penultimate deciding factor.

Community-owned buildings add £220m a year to economy, analysis shows

By

Most people involved in running community assets do so in order to preserve and improve them because they are of value to their local community.“However, it is important to note the research shows that although 31% of these assets are in excellent financial health, the sector needs more financial support in order to fulfil its economic potential.” There are over 6,300 community-owned assets such as leisure centres and village halls in England, adding nearly £220 million a year to the UK economy and £150 million to local economies, according to analysis commissioned by Power to Change and the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government.Entitled Our assets, our future and authored by a team of researchers from the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research at Sheffield Hallam University and the Institute for Voluntary Action Research, the analysis finds that community-owned assets are also financially robust with three-quarters of community-owned assets saying they are in good financial health despite limited resources.Nearly a third of all community-owned assets came into community ownership in the last decade, according to the analysis, signalling that this is a growth sector.The research also highlights areas where the sector needs more support to fulfil its economic potential, finding:Poorer areas are less likely to have community-owned assets, with the most deprived 30% of neighbourhoods containing 18% of assetsOne in five assets made an operating loss of 10% or more of revenue in the last financial yearRural and less deprived areas tend to have higher numbers of assets in community ownership yet some urban areas buck the trend – particularly Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Southwark, suggesting the importance of creating an environment supportive of community ownershipThe authors are calling for national and local government to consider a range of measures to support the growth of the community ownership sector, such as making it easier to transfer assets, providing more business planning and general support for community organisations, and ensuring community owners have more reliable access to cheap finance and greater protections against financial difficulties.Vidhya Alakeson, Chief Executive of Power to Change, said:“While many are fond of community-owned shops, parks, pubs and heritage buildings, few are aware how economically important these assets are. Now, for the first time, we know that they play an increasingly vital role, not just in the places where they’re based but in the wider economy.“When communities directly own land and buildings, they can start to meet the real needs of people in their area. That’s why we need concerted action from policymakers at all levels to support community ownership.” Advertisement  156 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4  155 total views,  2 views today Community-owned buildings add £220m a year to economy, analysis shows About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Journalist with critical radio station gunned down in his home

By

first_img News February 17, 2021 Find out more to go further RSF_en Crackdown on reporters covering Luanda demonstration Reporters Without Borders is shocked by the death of Alberto Chakusanga, the host of a programme on a radio station critical of the government. The first journalist to be murdered in Angola since 2001, he was found dead in the kitchen of his home in the Luanda district of Viana at dawn on 5 September. Chakusanga was shot in the back with a gun equipped with a silencer. His sister-in-law, who was in the house, heard nothing. He hosted an Umbundu-language programme on Radio Despertar, a station that was created as a result of the peace accords between the ruling MPLA and the opposition UNITA in 2002, when UNITA ended its armed rebellion.“While urging Angola’s politicians not to try to exploit or politicise this murder, we are struck by the fact that it has come at a time of tension between the MPLA and UNITA, which Radio Despertar tends to support,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The investigators should therefore not rule out any hypothesis, including the possibility that it was linked to the victim’s political allegiances or work as a journalist.”The press freedom organisation added: “We call on the authorities to ensure that a thorough investigation sheds light on all the aspects of this killing, which has dealt an unexpected blow to freedom of expression in Angola.”MPLA spokesman Rui Falcão assailed Chakusanga’s radio station at a news conference two days after his murder: “Affiliated to the party UNITA, Radio Despertar keeps on issuing calls for civilian disobedience. This is a serious situation that worries us and it is why I call on all the party’s members, supporters and friends not to react to any provocation, incitement or invitation contrary to law and order.”Falcão added: “The stance taken by Radio Despertar and the appeals it has been issuing are based on the speeches which UNITA’s leaders, especially its president, Isaias Samakavu, have been making with increasing frequency in recent days.”The communication ministry followed up with a communiqué threatening legal action against the station and urging various entities such as the National Council for Social Communication (CNCS), which regulates the media, to “assume their responsibilities as regards Radio Despertar.”Three days before Chakusanga’s murder, the MPLA issued a warning to citizens who “conspire” with foreigners to denigrate President José Eduardo dos Santos and his government.As a result of his radio programme, Chakusanga was popular among the Umbundu, Angola’s largest ethnic group and the main source of support for the former UNITA rebellion. Married and aged 31, he also taught at the Agostinho Neto state university’s faculty of arts.
