Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – San Salvador, El Salvador] Mientras los refugiados sirios siguen arriesgándose a morir al emprender un peligroso viaje a Europa en busca de una vida mejor, [numerosos] centroamericanos desplazados huyen también, dirigiéndose tanto al norte como al sur en busca de seguridad.El Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados advirtió el mes pasado de la “inminente crisis de refugiados” proveniente de América Central.La migración forzada y el desplazamiento interno que tienen lugar actualmente en la región fueron dos temas discutidos del 23 al 24 de noviembre en San Salvador durante la conferencia  sobre migración forzada, trata de personas y nuevas formas de esclavitud en Centroamérica. Representantes y defensores públicos de las oficinas de derechos humanos y de organizaciones no gubernamentales y de la sociedad civil, así como obispos anglicanos y episcopales, de la región asistieron a la conferencia. Durante la conferencia, los obispos también dieron el primer paso en la creación de una comisión anglicana regional sobre derechos humanos.David Alvarado, obispo de El Salvador, dirigió una oración durante un seminario en la Red [webinar]  coordinado por la Alianza Anglicana, la cual coauspició, junto con el Comité de Servicio de Amigos Americanos, la conferencia de dos días sobre migración forzada, desplazamiento interno, trata de personas  y esclavitud moderna. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.La Alianza Anglicana y el Comité de Servicio de Amigos Americanos auspiciaron la conferencia de dos días que tuvo lugar en el Hotel InterContinental [de esta ciudad] y que fue organizada por la Fundación Cristosal, una organización que surge de las iglesias Anglicana y Episcopal y se dedica a defender y abogar a favor de los derechos humanos.“La conferencia fue algo que Cristosal propuso debido a la labor que hacemos sobre el desplazamiento forzado”, dijo Noah Bullock, su director ejecutivo, añadiendo que el desplazamiento forzado no es un problema exclusivo de los países del Triángulo Norte, Guatemala, Honduras y El Salvador.La Fundación Cristosal ha trabajado por establecer precedentes legales para la protección de las víctimas desplazadas por la violencia en El Salvador, ofrece albergue y protección a las víctimas y se empeña en crear la capacidad de reasentamiento regional.Además de los que buscan asilo en Estados Unidos, en los últimos dos años las solicitudes de asilo presentadas principalmente por salvadoreños y hondureños en Nicaragua, Costa Rica y Panamá han aumentado en un 1.200 por ciento.“Y la tendencia probablemente seguirá incrementándose”, dijo él, añadiendo que reunir a los obispos junto con los defensores de los derechos humanos presentaba la oportunidad de compartir experiencias y crear alianzas orientadas a influir en la opinión pública y a responder a necesidades humanitarias emergentes.“La región no está preparada para recibir un influjo de refugiados. El liderazgo debe ser puesto al tanto del problema y Cristosal está bien posicionado para trabajar con el consejo de defensores del pueblo y algunos otros mecanismos de la región para abrir la puerta a fin de que la Iglesia llene ese vacío de liderazgo”.Como anglicanos y episcopales, “estamos obligados a luchar por la justicia y la paz en todas las comunidades y respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano”, dijo el obispo de Honduras Lloyd Allen, que durante la reunión ya había iniciado un diálogo para comenzar a abordar el tema con su diócesis. “No podemos cerrar nuestros ojos ante el abuso”.Las iglesias episcopales y anglicanas están presente en los tres países del Triángulo Norte: la Diócesis de Honduras pertenece a la IX Provincia de la Iglesia Episcopal, y las diócesis de Guatemala y El Salvador pertenecen a la Iglesia Anglicana de la Región Central de América, conocida por su sigla en español, IARCA.La crisis en Centroamérica captó brevemente la atención del mundo en el verano de 2014, cuando menores no acompañados y mujeres que viajaban con niños se entregaron en cifras récords a las autoridades estadounidenses en la frontera de EE.UU. con México. Las iglesias episcopales respondieron de inmediato a la crisis, y más recientemente la Convención General aprobó una resolución en apoyo de los derechos de los refugiados y reconociendo la violencia continua contra los ciudadanos y el desplazamiento de estos en Centroamérica.Según estudios, las comunidades vulnerables a través de la región sufren bajas debido a la violencia en un nivel a la par de los conflictos que asuelan otras partes del mundo. En los primeros siete meses de este año, más de 4,000 salvadoreños fueron asesinados, y en un solo día de agosto, 52 personas resultaron muertas en Honduras. La cifra en los primeros seis meses se calculó en 2,720 y en Guatemala, el mayor de los países del Triángulo Norte, 4,261 personas fueron asesinadas entre enero y septiembre.“El Salvador y Honduras compiten con Siria en lo que respecta a tasa de muertes”, dijo Bullock, quien recalcó la falta de soluciones duraderas. “En verdad no hay opciones para (estas) personas que huyen de uno de los conflictos más violentos y mortíferos del mundo”.Sólo en El Salvador se calcula que 289.000 personas han sido internamente desplazadas, mientras en Honduras, un cálculo conservador pone el número en 170,000. En Guatemala, la cifra se acerca a 250.000 personas.De los tres países del Triángulo Norte, sólo Honduras ha reconocido la existencia de desplazamiento forzoso, creando una comisión nacional para estudiar y documentar los casos.“No puede ignorarse el desplazamiento como una forma de violencia”, dijo Ricardo López, que trabaja en la oficina del defensor del pueblo en Honduras. “Si las personas han recibido amenazas , (las amenazas) se llevarán a cabo… nuestras calles están llenas de sangre”.Además de los obispos y los defensores del pueblo, los representantes del UNHCR, la Organización Internacional para la Migración y el Comité Internacional de la Cruz Roja, que se fue de El Salvador luego del fin de la guerra civil, pero que regresó en los últimos años, estuvieron presentes en la conferencia.El año pasado se cumplió el 30º. Aniversario de la Declaración de Cartagena, que enmendó la convención de los Refugiados y la definición protocolar de 1967 respecto a lo significa ser un refugiado: “personas que han huido de su país porque sus vidas, su seguridad o su libertad han sido amenazadas por la violencia generalizada, la agresión extranjera, conflictos internos, violación masiva de los derechos humanos u otras circunstancias que hayan perturbado seriamente el orden público”.Los países de Centroamérica y México adoptaron el protocolo, que no ha sido reconocido por Estados Unidos, en un momento cuando tanto Guatemala como El Salvador estaban librando guerras civiles y cuando los rebeldes contras combatían al gobierno sandinista de Nicaragua.En diciembre de 2014, la América Latina adoptó la Declaración de Brasil para abordar las nuevas tendencias al desplazamiento de la región. La declaración aspira a ponerle fin a la condición de apátrida para 2014, a partir de iniciativas anteriores tendientes a fortalecer la protección internacional de los refugiados en América Latina.“Los problemas no son sólo el problema de un país; sino que se comparten regionalmente”, dijo Armando Guerra, obispo de Guatemala. “Ello necesita la atención de todos nosotros”.De algunas formas, los elevados niveles de violencia social en el Triángulo Norte son un legado de las guerras civiles del siglo XX. Más de 200.000 civiles murieron durante la guerra civil de 36 años de Guatemala y 75.000 murieron en El Salvador durante los 12 años de conflicto entre el gobierno dirigido por militares y los grupos guerrilleros de izquierda. Aunque Honduras no tuvo su propia guerra civil, sintió las ramificaciones de los conflictos regionales, y sirvió de base a los contras que combatieron en Nicaragua con respaldo de EE.UU. de 1979 a 1990.Noah Bullock, director ejecutivo de la Fundación Cristosal reúne a varios obispos, entre los que se incluyen, siguiendo el orden de las manecillas del reloj a partir de él, Armando Guerra, obispo de Guatemala; Julio Murray, obispo de Panamá; Lloyd Allen, obispo de Honduras; Héctor Monterroso, obispo de Costa Rica; Juan David Alvarado, obispo de El Salvador y José López abogado de derechos humanos por la Diócesis de El Salvador. Foto Elmer Romero.El problema de la migración forzada en el Triángulo Norte es un resultado de la violencia, dijo el obispo de El Salvador David Alvarado, añadiendo que la violencia misma es parte de problemas estructurales mayores que incluyen la pobreza, las oportunidades económicas limitadas, el acceso a la educación, la atención sanitaria y otros problemas sociales.“Aún nos estamos recuperando de la guerra civil y en la actualidad tenemos problemas con jóvenes y pandillas”, dijo.En el período de 20 años  que sigue a la firma de los acuerdos de paz, 100.000 salvadoreños han muerto violentamente, más que durante la guerra civil, y actualmente se reporta que unas 70.000 personas son miembros de pandillas. En Honduras, el número de miembros de pandillas se estima que asciende a 116.000 y en Guatemala, el mayor de los tres países, se calcula que unas 14.000 personas pertenecen a pandillas y otras 30.000 se cuentan como simpatizantes de las mismas.Las pandillas controlan territorio mediante la violencia, incluidos el asesinato, la violación y la extorsión. Los varones jóvenes, en particular, se ven forzados a incorporarse a las pandillas. El rechazo a unirse a una pandilla puede interpretarse como una expresión de lealtad a una pandilla rival, y los no iniciados se convierten en blanco de asesinatos. A las mujeres y las muchachas con frecuencia las toman como “novias” de los pandilleros, y a menudo son víctimas de violación y otras formas de violencia sexual, como las de ser compartidas entre los miembros de las pandillas.Es en este contexto que las personas huyen; además, una encuesta de mujeres hecha por la UNHCR entre las detenidas en la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos determinó que de las decenas de miles de mujeres que buscaban protección, un gran porcentaje tenía importantes reclamos de protección conforme a la Convención contra la Tortura.Sin embargo, antes de que una persona cruce una frontera internacional, es probable que haya sufrido desplazamiento interno, el primero hacia el hogar de otro miembro de la familia.“Este es un fenómeno que afecta fundamentalmente a las personas pobres que usualmente se mudan de una familia pobre a otra familia pobre que es probable que esté controlada por una pandilla diferente o por la misma”, dijo Bullock. “Su presencia en el territorio es detectada en el transcurso de dos o tres días, y de este modo están obligados a mudarse una y otra vez hasta que los recursos se agotan. Cuando toman la decisión de abandonar el país, se esconden, porque  viajan irregularmente a Estados Unidos o a cualquier otra parte”.“Lo que las víctimas nos dicen constantemente es que ‘en estas condiciones yo no puedo desarrollarme como un ser humano’. Cuando a usted lo persiguen y su vida está controlada, cuando su vida está amenazada, no llega a desarrollarse, usted no tiene oportunidades y tiene que salir para encontrarlas”.Bullock ha empezado a fraguar una respuesta para la crisis de los refugiados y el desplazamiento interno como una “opción preferencial por la víctima” y finalmente los obispos llegaron a la conclusión de que el testimonio de la Iglesia es responder a las necesidades del pueblo en sus comunidades y a acoger al extranjero.En Costa Rica, por ejemplo, donde entre el 15 y el 20 por ciento de la población ha nacido en el extranjero, sobre todo nicaragüenses en busca de oportunidades económicas, la Iglesia brinda ayuda a madres y a sus hijos, 90 por ciento de ellos migrantes, a través de dos escuelas que funcionan en la capital, dijo el obispo de Costa Rica Héctor Monterroso.Es importante no sólo que la Iglesia responda a la necesidad humana, sino que también labore en pro de crear conciencia en torno a la migración forzosa, dijo el obispo de Panamá Julio Murry. Es por esto que se está formulando, en conexión con las comisiones de derechos humanos de los países,  una comisión regional anglicana sobre derechos humanos.“El propósito estratégico es que si vamos a formar un organismo anglicano, debemos formarlo con conexiones buenas y fuertes con otros organismos de derechos humanos —y en este caso se encuentran específicamente los defensores del pueblo, que son entidades estatales autónomas”, agregó Bullock.“Encaja perfectamente porque los defensores del pueblo pueden hacer el trabajo técnico en torno a los derechos humanos”, afirmó. “Y las iglesias, pueden hacer un llamado a las personas, para cambiar a las personas, de manera que esa política no resulte vacua, que se produzca realmente un cambio social que cuente con respaldo y en consecuencia que pueda ser real, y eso es importante.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

The house sits at the crown of a hill bordering on forestry lands and has territorial views of the surrounding wooded hills as well as views to Mt. Rainier and the city of Everett to the South. The house is four stories tall which allowed a larger amount of living space while maintaining a relatively small footprint and also takes better advantage of the views from the site. The site is landscaped with native vegetation which is irrigated in the dry summer months with rainwater runoff from the roof that is stored in a cistern. Purpose Save this picture!Courtesy of designs northwest architectsThe client showed an early interest in energy efficiency and sustainable low maintenance design. These goals guided the entire design process. The house uses insulated concrete form (ICF) construction which consists of two layers of rigid form insulation between which concrete is poured. The insulation remains in place on both the interior and exterior creating a very efficient and airtight wall system. ICF construction results in a 44% reduction of required heating energy and 33% reduction of required cooling energy when compared to a wood frame house of equal size. The ICF also allows for an easy application of stucco directly over the exterior insulation. This provides a durable long lasting and low maintenance finish. Save this picture!Courtesy of designs northwest architectsIn order to improve efficiency for heating and cooling, the house uses a geothermal heat pump tied in with a hydronic heating system. The system uses air from a subterranean chamber which uses the insulating properties of the earth to provide a more stable temperature for operating the heat pump. A geothermal heat pump can be up to 45% more efficient than a traditional heat pump which uses ambient air. The heat pump is tied in with a high efficiency boiler which supplies heated water through a piping system embedded in the concrete floor. This hydronic heating system uses an estimated 30% less energy than an equivalent forced air system. The house is also wired to receive solar panels and or wind turbine energy though these were not installed at this time due to budget constraints. Save this picture!Courtesy of designs northwest architectsThe house was also designed to take advantage of passive solar principles. A large bank of windows on the southern exposure allows solar penetration into the interior. The concrete floors act as a thermal mass that stores heat gain during the day and releases it slowly throughout the evening thereby mediating drastic temperature swings. On particularly hot days there are motorized solar shades which can be lowered to keep the sun out of the interior spaces. The stairway was also designed to provide natural ventilation using a solar chimney effect. The “Bubble” located at the top of the stair has operable windows which, when opened, create a natural convection effect pulling warm air up the stair well and out of the house. Design Save this picture!drawingThe Thomas Eco-House is divided by function between floors. The main floor is occupied by general living space including Kitchen, Dining and Living Room. The floor plan on this level is open with floor to ceiling glass opening out to the views. The upper floor contains the sleeping spaces and a reading loft which opens to the living room below. A fire pole provides a unique visual and physical connection between the two spaces. The stair tower continues upward to a special observation space nicknamed the “Bubble”. This area contains glass walls and ceilings which take full advantage of the expansive views and the night sky. A roof deck is accessible from the bubble. The lower floor is a daylight level which has been arranged so that it can be used as guest quarters or as a mother in law apartment. All four floors have polished concrete floors which add to the unembellished aesthetic of the house. The building forms are simple and follow the layout of the interior spaces reinforcing the overall strategy of efficiency that was the driving force behind the design.Project gallerySee allShow lessPlayhouses by SmartPlayhouseArticlesColeman Oval Skate Park Proposal / Holm Architecture Office + VM StudioArticles Share Thomas Eco House / Designs Northwest ArchitectsSave this projectSaveThomas Eco House / Designs Northwest Architects Houses CopyAbout this officeDesigns Northwest ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on December 28, 2011Cite: “Thomas Eco House / Designs Northwest Architects” 28 Dec 2011.

Kehlegg is a hamlet just above Dornbirn, together with Ebnit and Watzenegg, it is an Alpine site among the villages that formed the city which is known today as Dornbirn. The location at the end of a winding Alpine road may have made economic conditions for the surrounding farms more difficult compared to the Rhine Valley. However, today this topography is valued as a locale with great views for private homes close to the city.Save this picture!© Bruno KlomfarRecommended ProductsWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreThe house sits below the narrow road parallel to the hillside at the edge of a meadow that slopes down steeply to the southwest, just before the road leads from the village into the open landscape. The simplicity of the building enhances its Setzung (i.e. accentuation) as a primarily architectural gesture. It forms the structure of the building, both for its interior and exterior, the polarity between the one-story street-side and the two-story valley-side façade, as well as the functional structure of the interior into a living area upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs with a view of the garden. Save this picture!© Bruno KlomfarOn its road side the building frames a triangular main courtyard. The courtyard is flanked by a flat-roof annex that runs crosswise to the ridge of the building and which distinguishes itself as an exposed concrete structure from the main building made of timber. After entering the residential unit, the entrant recognizes that the wooden façade forms only the exterior layer for the room-forming façade concept. The screen composed of horizontal silver fir slats gives the building a uniform appearance by framing a ring of terraces and exterior staircases. It superposes with interior, room-height glass and wood panels. The result is a spectrum of graduated transparency of light and views protecting the rooms according to the needed level of intimacy from views, while offering vistas of the valley and the Rappenloch schlucht, a ravine, to enhance the living environment.

The Bench of Justice Sonia Gokani and Justice Sangeeta K. Vishen recommended so in a matter wherein a Lok Rakshak Dal (LRD) woman who wished to solemnize her marriage with a Muslim Man was called at the police station (by D.V. Tadvi, Police Inspector, Karanj Police Station, Ahmedabad) after sunset for recording her statement, on the next date. Inter-Faith Marriage- Gujarat HC Directs Police To Escort Woman To Ahmedabad To Register Marriage, Questions Police For Calling Her To Police Station After Sunset On 8th February, the Court has asked the Police Inspector to file an affidavit in this regard and so accordingly, he pleaded that he holds the Court in the highest esteem and there cannot be any intention, much less any deliberate or willful intention on his part or any officers of the department to disobey or flout the directions of this Court. He also tendered an unconditional apology and assured the Court that he shall be more careful in the future. He further submitted that her mother wanted to meet her and so he was swayed by the emotional outburst and the health condition of the mother and called the Corpus to the Police Station. It was also contended that she was not called alone, but she and the petitioner (Muslim Man) both were called as they agreed to meet the mother. Therefore, at night on 7.1.2021, they were called to meet the mother and brother both Court’s Observations At the outset, the Court remarked, “We are of the opinion that these are the moments which every officer faces routinely and that is where his training, his conviction and his adherence to the law would be required to govern him and the system.” The Court further opined, “The law is amply clear for the safeguard of women, and here is the corpus, who herself was part of a protection force, who later on has married to the petitioner. Undoubtedly, she was with the petitioner all along and not called alone at the police station.” Further, considering the overall circumstances and his positive role pursuant to the directions issued by this Court on 8th February 2021, where he made an attempt to mend his ways and tendered his unconditional apology and assured the Court not to repeat the same in future, the Court found it appropriate to put an end to the matter. Thus, the Court said, “We also recommend and expect the State Police Academy to indicate the need of strict adherence to law and the principles established under the law, as also inculcate sensitivity with dispassionate actions, to give fillip to the constituted ethos.” The officer concerned was directed to ensure the directions of this Court of police protection so far as the corpus is concerned and the petition, was, therefore, disposed of.

George Floyd family takes knee outside courthouse to symbolize the ‘torture’ their loved one endured

first_imgBrandon Bell/Getty ImagesBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(MINNEAPOLIS) — The family of George Floyd, their lawyers and hundreds of supporters joined the Rev. Al Sharpton in an act they said symbolizes the torture their loved one endured — taking a collective knee in front of the Hennepin County Courthouse on Monday morning and counting down the minutes former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on the back of Floyd’s neck.At 8:46 a.m., the family knelt for 8 minutes and 46 seconds before entering the heavily-guarded courthouse for the first day of Chauvin’s murder trial.The time was symbolic of how long authorities initially said Chauvin, who is white, had his knee on Floyd’s neck as the 46-year-old Black man repeatedly cried out “I can’t breathe” and begged for his dead mother.“Chauvin had George Floyd down. It had to be intentional. That’s the case we make. With that taking of the knee, the family goes in this court seeking justice for all of us in America,” Sharpton said.Ben Crump, an attorney for the Floyd family, called the Chauvin trial a “referendum if we’re going to continue to have two justice systems in America — one for white America and one for Black America.”“The goal today is equal justice for the United States of America,” Crump said.The tense scene outside the courthouse came just minutes before Hennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill swore in the jury and opening statements got underway in the high-profile case that has drawn attention from around the world and prompted protests across the nation.In his opening statement on Monday, prosecutor Jerry Blackwell alleged that Chauvin actually had his knee on the back of Floyd’s neck for longer than 8 minutes and 46 second. Blackwell said Chauvin dug his knee into Floyd’s neck for 9 minutes and 29 second, long enough to cause Floyd’s death as a result of oxygen deficiency.Floyd’s brothers spoke at the news conference, telling people they are bracing for Chauvin’s defense attorney, Eric Nelson, to attempt to denigrate their brother’s reputation to make it seem that he was at fault in his own death on May 25, 2020.“It’s cold out here, but the heat is on,” said Philonise Floyd. “The state of Minneapolis, Minnesota, they will have to make the right decision. They can’t sweep this under the rug.”He mentioned other Black people killed by law enforcement, including Philando Castile, a 32-year-old African American shot to death in 2016 during a traffic stop in a suburb of Minneapolis, and Eric Garner, a New York City Black man who died in 2014 after being placed in an illegal chokehold by a police officer.Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, stood near Philonise Floyd as he spoke.“One thing I can tell you is we will get justice,” he said. “If we can’t get justice for a Black man here in America, we will get justice everywhere else in America. This is a starting point. This is not a finishing point.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Microbial dynamics in coastal waters of East Antarctica:bacterial production and nanoflagellate bacterivory

first_imgBacterial production and heterotrophic nanoflagellate (HNAN) bacterivory were determined concurrently with measurements of abundance and biomass at weekly intervals between 30 December 1993 and 11 February 1994 at a shallow, coastal location in Prydz Bay, eastern Antarctica. Bacterial production was measured by [3H]thymidine incorporation and HNAN bacterivory by the uptake of fluorescently labelled bacteria. Bacterial abundance, biomass and production ranged from 2 to 8 x 108 l-1, 13 to 64 µg C l-1 and 8 to 14 µg C l-1 d-1, respectively, with maximum values recorded in mid January. The HNAN community comprised choanoflagellate, non-collared and colonial taxa, with non-collared forms dominating abundance and biomass in late January and early February. Total HNAN abundance and biomass ranged from 1.6 to 4.2 x 106 l-1 and 8 to 16 µg C l-1, respectively. HNAN cellular ingestion and clearance rates differed between taxa with maximum rates of 8.28 particles cell-1 h-1 and 9.32 nl cell-1 h-1 recorded for large non-collared forms. During the study period the HNAN community grazed 0.9 to 4.7 µg bacterial C l-1 d-1, equivalent to 3 and 12% of bacterial biomass, and 10 and 36% of daily bacterial production; however, these values are likely to be minimal estimates and grazing impact may have been higher on occasion. Choanoflagellates were responsible for much of the grazing impact at the beginning of the study period, while non-collared HNAN were the dominant grazers in late January and early February. The HNAN community therefore appears to graze substantial bacterial production in Antarctic coastal waters during the austral summer, although alternative sources of bacterial mortality are likely to be of importance.last_img read more

Exiting Rightmove agents share details of ‘bland’ emails sent urging them not to leave

first_imgDozens of estate agents were busy yesterday sharing details of the impersonal emails they’ve been sent by their Rightmove account managers following their decision to quit the portal.Many claim to have been shocked by the template emails sent to them, often after weeks of telephone calls and many years of subscribing to the portal.The most high profile of these is London agent Kristjan Byfield, who came off the portal yesterday and who has been one of its most reasonable critics.Yesterday he was sent the same email as other agents twice. Afterwards he said to his followers on Twitter: “Are you kidding me?! Our Rightmove account manager still thinks that the best way to get me back is to send generic, bland emails like this.“After sending him a link to my open letter and my five responses to previous emails making our position abundantly clear [it appears] nothing has been learned. Nothing!”.Byfield is referring to an open letter he published on March 27th in which he set out the reasons why he had used Rightmove in the past, but also why he had decided to quit, including the portal’s often uncompromising negotiating position on its annual fee hikes.“Their position was simple – either pay the increase, cut your package or leave,” he said at the time.Another agent, who was today sent an almost identical email about his impending last day on the portal, was sent this email:Good morning David,I’m writing to remind you that your Rightmove membership is set to expire today.I understand there are many more important things happening for you at the moment, but I wanted to get in touch to see if there’s anything we can do to support you.As you may know, the 75% discount applied to your Rightmove bill that you received starting from 1 April is set to continue for a further three months to ease some of the pressure you’re currently facing and so that you can continue to advertise your clients’ properties on Rightmove.If you wish to talk about this please let me know.If we don’t hear from you before 4:30pm today, your membership will expire on 30th April 2020.If you feel unable to continue with your Rightmove membership at this time, we’d be happy to speak to you at any point in the future to see if we can be of help.Above everything else, we wish you the best and we hope you, your family and your team are safe and well.Thank you,PS If you would like to continue with your Rightmove membership, we’d like to make it as easy as possible for you. Click this link before 4:30pm today and login to the Rightmove Hub to let us know you’d like to stay. If you don’t already have a Rightmove Hub login, you can create one. Of course, you can always give me a call or let me know a good time to call you. Alternatively, you can simply reply to this email. Kristjan Byfield Rightmove kristian byfield May 1, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
