Electric Skies: Chasing Catatumbo Lig...
Lake Maracaibo
By Transterra Media
08 Jul 2016

Buried deep in the jungles of Venezuela exists one of the world’s most unknown natural phenomenon: Catatumbo Lightning. Every year, Bahamian photographer and Catatumbo Lightning expert Alan Highton guides small groups of storm chasing tourists on a rugged 4-day journey through the precarious Venezuelan backcountry to his jungle guesthouse. Armed with waterproof bags, mosquito nets and other backcountry gear, the group must travel first by plane, then by road, and finally by boat. Once at the guesthouse they wait to witness Catatumbo Lightning first hand.

Catatumbo Lightning is a thundering symphony of relentless lighting storms concentrated in a small area. Occurring 140 to 160 nights a year, 10 hours per day and striking up to 280 times per hour, the storms are unmatched in their ferocity and unrelenting power. The Guinness Book of World Records will be adding Catatumbo Lightning to their list of record holders for the highest amount of average lightning bolts (250) per square kilometer, per year.

The lightning is a one of a kind natural phenomenon resulting from the particularly unique geographic conditions in the area where the Catatumbo River and Lake Maracaibo meet. At this nexus point, hot, wet winds blowing in from the lake collide with the mountain ridges of the Andes to create a perfect storm. The conditions are like nowhere else on earth and result in continuous lightning storms which start and finish like clockwork.

This story documents the journey of Alan Highton and his tour group as they push deep into the Venezuelan backcountry in search of Catatumbo Lightning.

Mohamad Tahoun

I am Mohamad Ahmed Abu Tahoun, I work in sanitation in al-Nasr children hospital. We have been on a strike for 8 days. And until now nothing is being said about the salaries.

As you can see our situation, nobody is helping us, if we find food we cook, if not we count of God. In our family, 3 men work in sanitation, and we have two handicaps to take care of. But we have not been paid for almost 4 months. Our situation is bad.

(Woman, arabic)

Suzanne

I am Suzanne, Mohamad's wife, we are three sisters married to three brothers. My eldest sister got married to Rafi Abu Tahoun, and four years later, I married Mohamad, and then my youngest sister married Iyad, about two years ago.

We are technically living together now, we used to live separately, but now, and because of the situation, we had to live together.

With the salary of 700 shekel, we used to barely be able to manage, but now when we no longer receive the 700 shekel, our situation is terrible. let alone the fact that we have handicaps, we also have children in schools. They need allowances, books, stationary. It is a very hard position that we are in. I hope that when winter comes, things will be easier for us, I hate winter now, because of the cold and the leaking that happen into the house.

I graduated from the university in 2008, and until now, I did not get a job in any domain and i did not even receive an unemployment allowance. in god's will if I find a job, our situation will definitely improve.

(05:01-05:48)

(Man, Arabic)

Iyad Tahoun

My name is Iyad Ahmed Mohamad Abu Tahoun, I work in the sanitation company, and they have not been paying us for 4 months. My son needs medications every week. any we cannot pay, even the supermarket owner is not allowing us to take stuff and pay later. We had to take things from the pharmacy and the supermarket and promise to pay later, but our debt grew and the supermarket owner told me to pay my debt in order to keep giving us things.

The government in Gaza is blaming the government of the West Bank and the other way around.

I hope that the officials can find a solution to our problem. because we can no longer handle the situation.

(09:13-09:37)

(Man, Arabic)

Rafi Tahoun

She suffered from a stroke about two months ago, stayed in the hospital for a while and then we took her home, they improved for a while but recently her situation got worst. She cannot eat unless we use a syringe. Most of our stuff we get on the intention to pay later, or from people who offer help sometimes.

(09:39-09:59)

(Woman, Arabic)

We need lots of things,we need tissues, two boxes everyday, they cost 5 Shekel. and we need diapers every week, they cost 28 shekel, and there is no payment, no salaries, we get all of the things that we need, including food, with debt. The situation is difficult, as you can see.

(10:00-10:25)

(Man, Arabic)

Rafi Tahoun

The sanitation situation in the hospital is bad, there are volunteers, but it is not the same as when we used to work here . They collect the trash and that is it, they do not sanitize what needs to be sanitized.

(12:54-16:23)

(Man, Arabic)

Official

The sanitation workers used to be paid by the government formed by Hamas, but now since the government is one, it is al-Hamdallah government, and is responsible for Gaza and the West Bank, It is responsible for all the education, sanitation and all the other cases. We are not talking about a strike for government employees, we are talking about a strike for private companies employees. those employees work according to contracts were signed in the era of the government of Hamas, and now al-Hamdallah government should be responsible to pay for them.

The political issue between Hamas and Fateh should not be related to the responsibilities of the government. The government should be responsible in Gaza the same way it is responsible in the West Bank.

The government is not doing its duties even though al-Hamdallah visited Gaza, and there are 4 functioning minsters in Gaza, but it is not doing its duties, and that is why the citizens are stressed. The problem of health, unemployment and many others in gaza should be the responsibility of the government.

Hamas requested from the people to volunteer until the problem is solved.

There is no good reason for not paying the employees, employees in other sectors are being paid. the employees have the right to practice all kinds of pressuring methods in order to get their rights, and it has been 6 months of struggling without a solution for this problem.

The 2 day general strike called by 11 trade unions began Wednesday and has had an effect in several estates of the nation. 

Commuters in the city faced hardships as a section of auto-rickshaws and taxis remained off the road in support of the two-day nationwide strike. 

Office-goers suffered the most as most auto-rickshaw and taxi drivers either refused or overcharged. Passengers at major railway stations and bus stands remained stranded or had to shell out more cash to reach their destinations. 

Five major auto-rickshaw and taxi unions have announced that they will join the strike to demand a hike in auto and taxi fares. 

Although Metro services were not affected by the strike, bus services were partially hit by the strike as a number of bus unions, including a section of Delhi Transport Corporation employees, have also extended support to the strike. 

Long queues were seen at Metro stations and bus stands as they remained the only viable option for people to commute. 

Normal banking operations were hit as employees of public sector banks went on a two-day strike in response to a call given by central trade unions to press for wage hike in the backdrop of rising inflation. 

Apprehending disruption in their normal banking operations, many banks had already informed their customers about the proposed strike. 

The bank strike is part of a general strike call given by 11 central trade unions including Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC), All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC), Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) and All India United Trade Union Centre.

Several independent Egyptian newspapers went on strike for one day on Tuesday, December 4, in protest against the constitutional declaration and the draft constitution. Twelve newspapers suspended publication and five TV channels announced that they will go off-air on Wednesday.

Egypt Independent, Al-Masry Al-Youm's English news website, has completely halted work and covered its main page with a statement reading "You are reading this message because Egypt Independent objects to continued restrictions on media liberties, especially after hundreds of Egyptians gave their lives for freedom and dignity."

The newly drafted constitution, which was passed on November 30 by the Islamist-dominated Constituent Assembly and is set to be voted on in a referendum on December 15, does not include articles against the imprisonment of journalists in cases related to freedom of expression as demanded by journalists.

The newspapers that went on strike on Tuesday include: Al-Masry Al-Youm, Al-Watan, Al-Tahrir, Al-Wafd, Al-Youm 7, Al-Dostour, Al-Shorouk, Al-Sabah, Al-Ahaly, Al-Ahrar, Al-Fagr and Osbooa. Among the TV channels that are expected to go strike on Wednesday, with blank screens broadcasting in place of content: ONTV channels, CBC and Modern channels, and Dream TV channels.

The Journalists Syndicate's executive council withdrew its representatives from the constituent assembly in mid-November after its recommendations and suggestions were ignored by the assembly.

Hunger Strike at Telefonica (8 of 8)
Barcelona, Spain
By Francesc Xavier Subias Salvo
18 Nov 2012

Five employees of Telefónica (Movistar) are on the 27th day of a hunger strike to protest the dismissal of an employee, demanding reinstatement of the worker, but the company refuses to negotiate. The employee was fired from the company in 2010 after a herniated disc; the company justified his dismissal under the labor reform of Zapatero, that allows a worker to be let go after missing 20% of work hours within a four month period.

The first court stated that the worker appealed the dismissal last year so Andres Marcos Armenteros returned for a few months to Telefónica, but the company turned to the Superior Tribunal of Justice of Catalonia which determined that the worker should be compensated but his readmission is at the discretion of the company.

Cinco trabajadores de Telefónica (Movistar) están en huelga de hambre desde hace 27 dias en Barcelona en protesta por el despido de uno de ellos y que Telefónica echó por haber presentado varias bajas consecutivas en pocos meses durante año 2010. Los huelguistas reclaman la readmisión del trabajador, mientras que la empresa se niega a negociar.

Fue despedido de la empresa en 2010 tras varias bajas, por una hernia discal, La empresa justificó el despido acogiéndose a la reforma laboral de Zapatero, que permitía echar a un trabajador si faltaba más de un 20% del tiempo dentro de un período de cuatro meses consecutivos.

El primer tribunal al que recurrió el trabajador declaró el año pasado nulo el despido, por lo que Marcos Andrés Armenteros regresó durante unos meses a Telefónica, pero la empresa recurrió al TSJC ( Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Catalunya), que dictó improcedencia al considerar que la empresa aplicó injustamente la reforma laboral de manera retroactiva. Según esta última sentencia, el trabajador debía ser indemnizado, pero la readmisión queda a criterio de la compañía.
