Stop IMF loan to the brutal dictator of Belarus!

ENG / RU / BY / PL Thousands of people Belarus took to the streets all over the country in peaceful non-violent protests against a tax on the unemployed. The “law against social parasites” requires people who work less than 183 days a year to pay the government $250 annually. The dictator responded with dozens (the number is constantly growing) of unlawful arrests and  trials with multiple violations of court procedures.  Dozens of law-abiding citizens are detained. At the very same time International Monetary Fund continues active negotiations with Lukashenko on a new $3bln loan. Lukashenko is the closest Putin's military ally. The dictators will hold huge joint military drills called "west 2017" this September in Belarus  very close to the border with European Union. 1000 (one thousand) tanks will rehearse offensive military operation in a western country. Under such circumstances, considering the recent history of Mr Putin,  it is dangerous for the international security to provide $3bln to the dictators' alliance.      We the undersigned  demand to stop all negotiations (including consultations) between IMF and the government of Belarus, until all detained peaceful protesters will be released.We demand from IMF not to provide any financial assistance to Belarus whilst Lukashenko remains in power. ====================================== RU Тысячи людей вышли с мирными ненасильственными протестами против налога на безработных. Согласно "декрету против тунеядцев" люди проработавшие менее 183 дней в году должны оплатить ежегодный налог в размере  $250. (На начало 2017 года средняя заработная плата составляла  $380) Диктатор ответил десятками (число постоянно растет) неправомерных арестов и судов с многочисленными нарушениями судебных процедур. Десятки законопослушных граждан задержаны. В то же самое время Международный Валютный Фонд продолжает  переговоры с Лукашенко по предоставлемию нового кредита. Mы, нижеподписавшиеся, требуем прекратить все переговоры (включая консультации) между МВФ и руководством Беларуси до тех пор, пока все задержанные мирные демонстранты не будут освобождены. Mы требуем от МВФ не предоставлять финансовой помощи Беларуси, пока Лукашенко остается у власти. ====================================== BY Тысячы людзей выйшлі з мірнымі негвалтоўнымі пратэстамі супраць падатку на беспрацоўных. Паводле "дэкрэтам супраць дармаедаў" людзі якія прапрацавалі менш 183 дзён у годзе павінны аплаціць штогадовы падатак у памеры $ 250. (На пачатак 2017 года сярэдняя заработная плата складала $ 380) Дыктатар адказаў дзесяткамі (колькасць пастаянна расце) неправамерных арыштаў і судоў са шматлікімі парушэннямі судовых працэдур. Дзесяткі законапаслухмяных грамадзян затрыманыя. У той жа самы час Міжнародны валютны фонд працягвае перамовы з Лукашенкам па прадастаўленні новага крэдыту. Mы, ніжэйпадпісаныя, мы патрабуем спыніць усе перамовы (уключаючы кансультацыі) паміж МВФ і кираўництвам Беларусі да таго часу, пакуль усе затрыманыя мірныя дэманстранты не будуць вызваленыя. Мы патрабуем ад МВФ не даваць фінансавай дапамогі Беларусі, пакуль Лукашэнка застаецца ва ўладзе. =================================== PL Tysiące ludzi na Białorusi wyszło na ulice aby pokojowo zamanifestować przeciwko podatkowi na bezrobocie. Według „dekretu przeciwko pasożytom” osoby pracujące mniej niż 183 dni w roku będą musiały zapłacić roczny podatek o wysokości 250 dolarów (dla porównania, na początku 2017 roku średnia krajowa pensja wynosiła 380 dolarów). Dyktator zareagował na manifestacje dziesiątkami bezprawnych aresztowań oraz procesów prowadzonych z pogwałceniem procedur sądowych. Dziesiątki praworządnych obywateli - a liczba to rośnie z każdym dniem - zostało bezprawnie zatrzymanych podczas gdy, dokładnie w tym samym czasie, Międzynarodowy Fundusz Walutowy prowadzi negocjacje z rządem Białorusi w sprawie nowej pożyczki. Łukaszenko jest najbliższym sojusznikiem militarnym Putina. We wrześniu tego roku dyktatorzy przeprowadzą na Białorusi - tuż pod granicami Unii Europejskiej - wspólne manewry wojskowe "Zachód 2017". Zgodnie z planem ponad 1000 czołgów przećwiczyć ma ofensywne operacje militarne w "zachodnim" kraju. Biorąc pod uwagę te plany, a także uwzględniając ostatnie działania militarne Putina jest jasne, że wspomaganie sojuszu dyktatorów przez udzielanie pożyczki w wysokości 3 miliardów dolarów jest zagrożeniem dla bezpieczeństwa międzynarodowego Żądamy od MFW zawieszenia wszystkich negocjacji oraz konsultacji pomiędzy MFW a rządem Białorusi do momentu zwolnienia wszystkich zatrzymanych pokojowych manifestantów. Żądamy od MFW zaprzestania udzielania pomocy finansowej Białorusi tak długo, jak Łukaszenka pozostaje przy władzy.

Fight corruption in Land administration to end land injustices

Land corruption is so apparent that it’s as good as invisible. We’ve been pulled and slushed in this cycle of land corruption, so much so, that it’s now a part of our daily life.  Millions of men and women bear the brunt of political and grand corruption in relation to land: when they are not involved in decision-making on land deals, their land is grabbed, or expropriated, and/or they are inadequately compensated for their land  Men and women have  limited access to information, limited participation in decision-making, complex laws and procedures regulating land ownership, and insufficient access to justice are some of the driving forces behind land corruption, while the insufficient capacity of local land offices and traditional institutions makes it more difficult for officials to support good governance practices. Limited anti-corruption oversight by independent bodies and a perceived lack of consequences for abusing power in land management and administration processes also enable a climate of corruption. This block chain-enhanced system takes over and registers a sale deed in the presence of the buyer and seller, then processes the sign-offs by both the buyer and seller and push the transaction to the approval stage. After the transaction is approved, an automatic transfer of ownership is completed. And importantly, the system will also be able to handle land titles with multiple owners. From the administrator’s perspective, there are significant transparency, accuracy and efficiency gains to be had. They will now be able to view and monitor the state of the property and sale deed in near real-time, as well as have instant access to a complete and permanent transnational history for each property and sale deed. The beauty of this system is that citizens engaged in buying and selling property will neither require any block chain accounts or wallets nor will they experience a change in the way they currently interact with the land registry. The block chain engine simply works quietly but powerfully in the background. The solution will also increase citizens’ confidence in the government and make the overall customer experience less cumbersome. Most importantly it will enhance data security and ensure authenticity of land records. Let us all act now for a  #CorruptionFreeworld  Thank you

Changing the money-game-rules in favour of 88,888% of all breathing human beings

Every person using money as a currency on a regular basis is concerned. A very small minority of that group (estimated at 11,112% is considerably high, why this symbolic number of all 8's? Because of the fact that the sum of all euro coins and notes gives the exact amount of 888,88€) have an advantage of our 'eternal' economic growth model society as it is. Therefore, we can hopefully agree that the upcoming decades there is no need to create more new money or that the quantity of money in circulation at the moment is sufficient enough.  The easiest way to do this is to make the smallest and sustainable of changes possible. This is why the rounding rules should or have to be adapted. At the moment the rounding rules are as follows: - 1,2,3 and 4 thousandths of 1 EUR (one Euro) becomes 0 hundredths of a EUR - 5,6,7,8 and 9 thousandths of 1 EUR (one Euro) becomes 1 hundredths of a EUR That means that for every average of 10 transactions the actual rules create 1 hundredths of a EUR out of nothing! (no link with any reality except for the actual rules) which will not change a life of any individual person who is not in power. The proposal so as to make it better for a large majority of people worldwide: - 1,2,3,4 and 5 thousandths of 1 EUR (one Euro) becomes 0 hundredths of a EUR - 6, 7, 8 and 9 thousandths of 1 EUR (one Euro) becomes 1 hundredths of a EUR Here, the proposed rules decrease the quantity of money with 1 hundredth of a € with no link to any reality than to the proposed, new rules. The difference between the two rules is 2 hundredths of a € every 10 (ten) transactions.  I want to encourage to sign because of this examples: you go to the supermarket and you buy f.e. 36 products, how many times the supermarket apply the rounding rules? yes 36 times, second example: you work one month and get your salary at the end, how many times does they apply the rounding rules? yes, 1 time. This examples show us that big companies have advantage with actual rounding rules that go up more oftenly (5/9) and we, consumers have relatively talking advantage with rounding rules that go down more oftenly (also 5/9) as in proposed rounding rules.
