Sec. Hillary Clinton, Canada’s Deputy PM Chrystia Freeland, Oprah Winfrey, Malala, Christine Lagarde, Michelle Obama & Global Women Leaders from Over 14 Countries Sign an Open Letter Calling for UN Action Against Iran

The Open Letter, Published in Sunday’s New York Times, Calls for the Immediate Expulsion of the Islamic Republic of Iran from the UN Commission on the Status of Women

WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The world’s preeminent women leaders in business, politics, advocacy and the arts published an open letter in Sunday’s New York Times calling for the immediate removal of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) from the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).

Signatories of the letter include Sec. Hillary Clinton, Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland, Media Leader & Philanthropist Oprah Winfrey, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate & Education Activist Malala Yousafzai, Economic & Political Leader Christine Lagarde, former First Lady of the United States & Advocate of Girls Education Michelle Obama, former Executive Director of UN Women Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, former head of UN Climate Change Convention Christiana Figueres DBE, former First Lady of the United States & Education Advocate Laura Bush, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate & Human Rights Activist Nadia Murad and women in leadership positions from 14 countries (and counting).

This global effort—a partnership between Vital Voices, For Freedoms and a coalition of Iranian women leaders—comes amid more than 40 days of worldwide protests launched and led by Iranian women and girls after the tragic death of 22-year-old Mahsa Jina Amini. The protestors are demanding justice after Amini died on September 16, 2022 while in police custody. Amini was arrested by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s “morality police” for allegedly not complying with mandatory hijab laws.

Reports of extreme punishments and harsh crackdowns against protestors by Iranian authorities have flooded international headlines and social media feeds in the weeks since Amini’s death, gaining worldwide attention and scrutiny.

The group of women leaders who signed on to the letter came together in solidarity with Iranian women and girls with a clear call to action: the immediate removal of the Islamic Republic of Iran from the Commission on the Status of Women.

Within the first few days of going live, the letter received more than 21,000 signatures and growing. Additionally, more than 130,000 petitioners have also signed a letter asking for the same outcome on Change.org.

The open letter states: “We condemn the brutal violence of security forces against peaceful protesters … Earlier this year, to the dismay of women’s rights advocates around the world, Iran began a four–year term on the UN’s 45–member Commission on the Status of Women. This preeminent global body is exclusively dedicated to promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Islamic Republic of Iran’s long–standing, systematic oppression of women should have disqualified them from election to the CSW.”

The letter also laments the Islamic Republic of Iran’s record on women’s rights, citing gender inequality and legalized discrimination against women regarding marriage, divorce, inheritance, child custody cases and attire. These restrictions include the mandate that requires women to wear head coverings at the onset of puberty.

The signatories of the letter warn that the violence and loss of life will continue without global intervention at the highest levels, and that the Commission on the Status of Women will lose credibility each day the Islamic Republic of Iran remains a member.

“This is a critical moment for leaders in the international community to vocally and unequivocally demonstrate their support for women’s rights by standing in solidarity with Iranian women and girls,” states the letter.

Members of the public are invited to read the full letter here. To join the movement, sign on here.

Children’s Climate Risk Index: Egypt Report

Children are at risk of climate change related hazards in the middle East and North Africa

Egypt scores highest in the region in children’s exposure to climate and environmental shocks

AMMAN, Today, UNICEF released the Children’s Climate Risk Index (CCRI) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region with a special focus on Egypt. The Index highlights the vulnerability of children living in many countries in the region to the impacts of climate change.

Ahead of Egypt hosting the UN climate change conference COP27 in November, the report focuses on the impact of climate change on children and families in Egypt, compared to the rest of the region. The report reveals that in relation to ‘exposure to climate and environmental shocks,[1]’ Egypt is in the ‘extremely high risk’ category, with an index score of 7.3 (out of 10) – the highest in the region. Egypt is highly exposed to climate and environmental shocks: for instance, an estimated 5.3 million children are exposed to heatwaves. Average temperatures in Egypt have increased by 0.53 degree Celsius per decade over the past 30 years. Egypt ranks in the top three countries in the region on four hazards out of seven.

In the Middle East and North Africa, four countries have children who face high to very high risks of climate change[2]. In 2021, this meant that around 86 million children (0-17 years old) and over 34 million youths (15 – 24 years old) face these risks[3]. These countries are likely to have over 103 million children and 53.5 million adolescents by 2050[4], who, without urgent mitigation and adaptation, will be left more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

The report also reveals that Egypt scores 3 in relation to ‘vulnerability to climate and environmental shocks,’ which falls into the ‘low-medium risk’ category. This indicates that the availability and quality of essential services for children, such as water, sanitation, health care, nutrition and education, among others, are generally higher than the regional average, decreasing the vulnerability of children in Egypt. Children with adequate access to basic services are not only less vulnerable but are likely to be more resilient and adaptive in their response to climate change.

In the face of the challenges of climate change, countries in the region have responded with different measures. Taking Egypt as an example, the country has reinforced its commitments to tackle climate change and mitigate its consequences, both domestically and internationally. It has also, over the years, invested in the wellbeing of children, with a focus on the most vulnerable families and the most deprived geographical areas.

While the impacts of the climate crisis in the region are deeply concerning, there is room for action and optimism. Urgent action is needed to protect children and young people by adapting critical social services to climate change, prepare them with climate education and ensuring that voices are heard and acted on, and prioritizing them in climate funding, policies and resource allocations.

Notes to Editors:

The global Children’s Climate Risk Index, which was released in 2021, is a composite index based on a multi-shock model that captures the exposure of children to multiple climate and environmental shocks and stress. The index covers the various sectors related to the well-being of children, focusing on aspects that can contribute to child deprivation in the context of climate-related and environmental shocks and stresses.

The Index is calculated based on a set of indicators across two pillars:

  • Pillar 1 that measures the exposure of children to climate and environmental hazards, shocks and stresses.
  • Pillar 2 that captures child vulnerability to climate and environmental shocks and stresses.

Information note from the United Nations Secretariat at the Joint Coordination Centre (30 October 2022)

Istanbul, 30 October 2022 – The United Nations Secretariat convened all delegations earlier today at the Joint Coordination Centre in a plenary format. During the session, the delegation of the Russian Federation informed that while it suspends its participation in the implementation of the activities of the Initiative, including in inspections, for an indefinite time, it will continue the dialogue with the United Nations and the Turkish delegation on pressing issues. The Russian Federation delegation also expressed its readiness to cooperate remotely on issues that require immediate decision by the JCC.

The Secretariat, in close cooperation with the Turkish delegation at the JCC, continues to engage all representatives to offer options on next steps regarding the JCC operations in accordance with the goals and provisions stated in the Initiative.

In order to continue fulfilling the Initiative, it was proposed that the Turkish and United Nations delegations provide tomorrow 10 inspection teams aiming to inspect 40 outbound vessels. This inspection plan has been accepted by the delegation of Ukraine. The Russian Federation delegation has been informed.

Currently, there are 97 loaded vessels and 15 inbound vessels registered for JCC inspection around Istanbul. There are an additional 89 that have applied to join the Initiative.

In addition, the Ukrainian, Turkish and United Nations delegations agreed on a movement plan for tomorrow 31 October for the maritime humanitarian corridor of 16 vessels, 12 outbound and 4 inbound. The UN delegation, in its capacity as JCC Secretariat, has informed the delegation of the Russian Federation on the movements in accordance with the JCC established procedures. As per JCC procedures, all participants coordinate with their respective military and other relevant authorities to ensure the safe passage of commercial vessels under the Black Sea Grain Initiative.

There was no movement of vessels in the corridor today, 30 October. There are currently 21 vessels engaged in the Initiative that are in or near the three Ukrainian ports with a capacity of over 700,000 metric tons, including IKARIA ANGEL, a vessel chartered by the World Food Programme loaded with 30,000 metric tons of wheat for the emergency response in the Horn of Africa.

Today, the joint inspection teams concluded 11 inspections on board outbound vessels SAKAR (IMO 9104811), BLUE SHARK (IMO 9003770), IRMGARD (IMO 9590967), ARGONAUT (IMO 9717694), LUCKY (IMO 9037305), YAF S (IMO 9437787), LADY ELA (IMO 9511442), SANITA S (IMO 9237888), SUPER ARSENAL (IMO 9316933), ZHE HAI 505 (IMO 9567477), and NEW LEVANT (IMO 9111371). The JCC has requested additional documentation from one more outbound vessel JAGUAR (IMO 7726990) to be cleared remotely. Another inspection on board an outbound vessel was suspended due to lack of documents.

Today, 30 October, six vessels carrying 186,426 metric tons of grains and other food stuffs began their outbound voyage but have not yet entered the maritime humanitarian corridor:

  1. DESPINA V (IMO 9727986) from Yuzhny/Pivdennyi to Rotterdam, The Netherlands, carrying 71,135 metric tons of corn.
  2. NIKOLAOS A (IMO 9493949) Chornomorsk to Liverpool, United Kingdom, carrying 46,141 metric tons of rapeseed.
  3. AFRICAN ROBIN (IMO 9317767) from Odesa to Algeria, carrying 30,500 metric tons of wheat.
  4. IKARIA ANGEL (IMO 9194397) from Chornomorsk to Djibouti, carrying 30,000 metric tons of wheat.
  5. SK FRIENDSHIP (IMO 8909446) from Chornomorsk to Egypt, carrying 6,600 metric tons of soya beans.
  6. SEALOCK (IMO 8218380) from Chornomorsk to Mersin, Türkiye, carrying 2,050 metric tons of peas.

Yesterday, 29 October, five outbound vessels transited safely the maritime humanitarian corridor under the Black Sea Grain Initiative carrying 97,400 metric tons:

  1. SUPER BAYERN (IMO 9278911) from Chornomorsk to Italy carrying 33,000 metric tons of corn.

  5. MONTARA (IMO 9234202) from Odesa to Türkiye carrying 3,200 metric tons of corn.

In addition, four inbound vessels transited safely the corridor yesterday and reached their respective ports: CHRISTINA B (IMO 9304162), ELEFSIS (IMO 9118678), RATTANA NAREE (IMO 9245055), and RIO (IMO 9039975).

ROSEN, GLOBAL INVESTOR COUNSEL, Encourages Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc. and Discovery, Inc. Investors With Losses Over $100K to Secure Counsel Before Important Deadline in Securities Class Action – WBD, DISCA, DISCB, DISCK

NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds investors who: (a) exchanged Discovery, Inc. (“Discovery”) common stock (NASDAQ: DISCA, DISCB, DISCK) for Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc. (“Warner Bros.”) common stock (NASDAQ: WBD) pursuant to Discovery’s February 4, 2022 Registration Statement on Form S-4 and Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 10, 2022; and/or (b) purchased shares of Warner Bros. common stock on the open market traceable to the Prospectus through the date of the filing of the complaint on September 23, 2022 of the important November 22, 2022 lead plaintiff deadline.

SO WHAT: If you exchanged Discovery common stock for Warner Bros. common stock pursuant to Discovery’s February 4, 2022 Registration Statement on Form S-4 and Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus filed with the SEC on February 10, 2022 and/or purchased shares of Warner Bros. common stock on the open market traceable to the Prospectus through September 23, 2022, you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the Warner Bros. Discovery class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=8888 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than November 22, 2022. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually handle securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, at the time of filing the Registration Statement and Prospectus, defendants either knew or had access to adverse information concerning operations of the WarnerMedia business of AT&T. Among other things, as subsequently disclosed by defendants after the merger: (1) WarnerMedia’s HBO Max streaming business had a high churn rate that made the business not “viable” unless the churn rate was reversed; (2) AT&T was overinvesting in WarnerMedia entertainment content for streaming, without sufficient concern for return on investments; (3) WarnerMedia had a business model to grow the number of subscribers to its streaming service without regard to cost or profitability; (4) WarnerMedia was improvidently concentrating its investments in streaming and ignoring its other business lines; and (5) WarnerMedia had overstated the number of subscribers to HBO Max by as many as 10 million subscribers, by including as subscribers AT&T customers who had received bundled access to HBO Max, but had not signed onto the service. The adverse information was not disclosed to Discovery shareholders in the Registration Statement or Prospectus or otherwise prior to the effective date of the merger. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the Warner Bros. Discovery class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=8888 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.
