The International Day of the Disappeared on August 30 is an annual commemoration day created to draw attention to the fate of individuals imprisoned at places and under poor conditions unknown to their relatives and/or legal representatives.

The observance of the International Day of the Disappeared was started by the Latin American Federation of Association of Relatives of the Detained and Disappeared (Federación Latinoamericana de Asociaciones de Familiares de Detenidos-Desaparecidos, or FEDEFAM) based in Costa Rica, in 1982. The tradition has been adopted by many human rights advocates worldwide.
The UN General Assembly adopted the International Convention for the Protection of all persons from Enforced Disappearances. Fifty-seven countries have signed the convention. For it to be enforced, it should be ratified as well by the legislatures of at least 20 countries.

The Convention defines “enforced disappearance” as “the arrest, detention, abduction or any other form of deprivation of liberty by agents of the State or by persons or groups of persons acting with the authorization, support or acquiescence of the State, followed by a refusal to acknowledge the deprivation of liberty or by concealment of the fate or whereabouts of the disappeared person, which place such a person outside the protection of the law.”

Article 1 of the Convention states that:

“No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification for enforced disappearance.”

The Convention obliges State parties to enact legislations criminalizing enforced disappearance. It states that no exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification for enforced disappearance.

The Convention also deems the widespread or systematic practice of enforced disappearance as a crime against humanity.

On August 30 2008 different events are organised by the families of victims all over the world to commemorate the disappeared. On this day, the iCAED calls on governments to sign and ratify the Convention.

The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women

Filed under: Women — looking4good @ 7:35 pm
Do you know them? I confess I haven’t heard some of these names. Other, I couldn’t say what they do. I must conclude that my knowledge about powerful women is weak… unfortunately.

The Forbs’ «annual ranking of the most powerful women in the world measures “power” as a composite of public profile–calculated using press mentions–and financial heft. The economic component of the ranking considers job title and past career accomplishments, as well as the amount of money the woman controls».

For the third year running Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, is the world’s most powerful woman.

The top 10 is:

Angela Merkel (Chancellor Germany)
Sheila C. Bair (Chairman, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp, U.S.A.)
Indra K. Nooyi (Chaiman, Chief Executive, Pepsi Co, U.S.A.)
Angela Braly (Chief Executive, president, WellPoint, U.S.A.)
Cynthia Carroll (Chief Executive, Anglo American, United Kingdom)
Irene B. Rosenfeld (Chairman, Chief Executive, Kraft Foods, U.S.A.)
Condoleezza Rice (Secretary of State, USA)
Ho Ching (Chief Executive, Temasek Holdings, Singapore)
Anne Lauvergeon (Chief Executive, Arevna, France)
Anne Mulcahy (Chaiman, Chief Executive, Xerox Corp., U.S.A.)

By country Portugal has noone in the top 100. United States has 60% of the 100 most powerful women in the world, United Kingdom 5, China 4, France, India, Netherlands 3.

Other conclusion is: any supermodel is listed … Ah ah ah … the motive because you don’t see any photo in this post.
