Curfew is lifted in Baltimore
as rallies and protests continue


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has ended the citywide overnight curfew as protesters held another rally against police violence outside city hall.

Baltimore was in turmoil last week after the funeral for Freddie Gray, the African American man who died last month while in police custody.

Mayor Rawlings-Blake said she did not want to have the curfew in place longer than necessary. "My number one priority in instituting a curfew was to ensure the public peace, safety, health and welfare of Baltimore citizens," she said.

The American Civil Liberties Union and business owners, especially restaurants, criticized the curfew.

Shortly after the mayor's announcement ending the curfew, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said some of the 4,000 soldiers and police brought in from other states have begun to leave the city. Hogan said the state of emergency in Baltimore will not be lifted until all the soldiers have left.

In a statement, the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland criticized the curfew as "being used to restrict the First Amendment rights of protestors, legal observers, and the media" while also "engendering needless tension and hostility."

Demonstrators took advantage of a beautiful spring day to rally peacefully outside city hall Sunday. Many prayed for peace.

The neighborhood shopping mall that was looted during Monday's riots reopened for the first time Sunday, giving residents badly-needed accesses to a close-by supermarket and department store.

Parts of the city exploded in violence after Gray's funeral Monday, leaving stores and cars burned, police officers hurt, and more than 200 people arrested. The 25-year-old African-American man died of spinal injuries suffered while in police custody.

Baltimore state's attorney's office has charged six officers involved in Gray's arrest - three of them African American - with crimes ranging from manslaughter to murder. Prosecutors say Gray was arrested for no reason and that officers ignored his pleas for medical help.


World Press Freedom Day
focuses attention on violations


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Sunday was World Press Freedom Day, an annual observance established by the United Nations in 1993 to support and celebrate the fundamental principles of press freedom, which President Barack Obama has described as vital to democracy.

The U.N. said World Press Freedom Day is also an occasion to inform citizens of violations of press freedom, a reminder that in dozens of countries around the world, publications are censored, fined, suspended and closed down, while journalists, editors and publishers are harassed, attacked, detained and even killed.

Ahead of World Press Freedom Day, Obama met at the White House Friday with three immigrant journalists. He said all three faced harsh treatment in their home countries and are now continuing their journalistic endeavors in the United States where they were granted political asylum.  They are:

Dieu Cay from Vietnam is a blogger who has written extensively on human rights and religious freedom and is a leading voice for press freedom in his county. He spent six years in prison and was released last October.

Lily Mengesha from Ethiopia has written to expose the marrying off of girls as child brides in her country. She was harassed and detained and now works for the National Endowment for Democracy. She worked as a translator for a Voice of America correspondent in Ethiopia and was detained with him for illegal reporting in 2012 in Addis Ababa.

Fatima Tlisova, an ethnic Circassian from the North Caucasus region of Russia, works for the Voice of AmericaÝs Russian Service.

Obama said, ýShe reported on military operations in the North Caucasus region, as well as disappearances and corruption. She was attacked, kidnapped, tortured herself. Today, she reports for the Voice of America and most recently has spent time reporting on the Boston trials related to the Boston bombing.ţ 

After returning to VOA following the meeting with Obama, Ms. Tlisova said the opportunity to meet and speak with the president was indeed a moving experience, but above all the importance of it was the message that the president of the United States sent to journalists in Russia.

ýBecause killing journalists, arresting journalists, intimidating journalists is not just a punishment, it is an act of sending a message to all other journalists,ţ she said, a harsh treatment that has contributed to increase of self-censorship.

The 2015 World Press Freedom Index spotlights the negative impact of conflicts on freedom of information. Reporters Without Borders, the sponsor of the index, said the index highlights the worldwide deterioration in freedom of information.

The group said media freedom is in retreat on all five continents.

Finland tops the World Press Freedom Index for the fifth straight year. Two other Scandinavian countries, Norway and Denmark, follow Finland.

At the bottom of the list as the worst performers are Turkmenistan, North Korea and Eritrea, which is in last place, number 180.

The United States comes in at number 49, with Britain number 34 and Japan is 61.

Toward the bottom of the index are Afghanistan at 122, Zimbabwe at 131, Cuba at 169 and China is ranked at number 176.


Bracelets part of campaign
to highlight
journalists' plight

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services


More than 220 journalists around the world are imprisoned for covering news and reporting information their governments may not like, such as stories on official corruption, political uprisings and pro-democracy rallies.

Beginning Sunday, World Press Freedom Day, the Committee to Protect Journalists, a private U.S. group, is launching a campaign to bring attention to their plight and encourage efforts to free them. 

The campaign is called Press Uncuffed. It is selling clear, plastic bracelets, to represent the importance of the transparency of information. Each is etched with the name of one of nine imprisoned journalists:

˝ Yusuf Ruzimuradov, a reporter for an opposition newspaper in Uzbekistan, who has been imprisoned for more than 15 years

˝ Ilham Tohti, a minority Uighur economist and writer in China

˝ Bheki Makhubu, a magazine editor in Swaziland

˝ Mahmoud Abou Zeid (Shawkan), a photographer in Egypt

˝ Ta Phong Tan, an online blogger in Vietnam 

˝ Khadija Ismayilova of Azerbaijan, an investigative reporter and a radio host for the Azeri service of Radio Free Europe

˝ Reeyot Alemu, a columnist for the leading independent weekly newspaper in Ethiopia

˝ Ammar Adbulrasool, a photographer from Bahrain

˝ U.S. citizen Jason Rezaian, a reporter for The Washington Post, who has been imprisoned for nine months in Iran, and just recently was charged with espionage 

The idea for the bracelets originated with University of Maryland journalism students in a class focusing on imprisoned reporters overseas.

Lejla Sarcevic, who graduated with a masterÝs degree in journalism, is now the projectÝs campaign director.

ýImprisoned journalists around the world are often abused and tortured,ţ Ms. Sarcevic said. ýI really want people to have a conversation about it and to raise awareness of it.ţ

Courtney Radsch, the advocacy director for the Committee to Protect Journalists, said most of those named on the bracelets were incarcerated on anti-state or retaliatory charges. 

ýThese journalists are primarily being jailed because they are critical, they are looking into the abuses of those in power, or simply trying to report on things that are happening in their countries," Ms. Radsch said.

According to Washington Post reporter Dana Priest, ýThat includes pieces on the Internet, where governments are increasingly scrutinizing articles and other information. And then they're using those against social media journalists, bloggers and citizen journalists to stop them, to put them in prison, to exile them, to threaten them. That's happening in places like Ethiopia, Vietnam, places in Central America, China for sure.ţ

Ms. Priest is teaching the journalism class that developed the campaign.

The Committee to Protect Journalists said, over the past decade, the number of journalists being jailed has risen, especially in the past three years.

ýNot just imprisoning but there are more journalists killed,ţ Ms. Priest said, adding that China holds the most, followed by Iran.

Press Uncuffed hopes its efforts will increase pressure on governments to release imprisoned journalists. The bracelets can be purchased online for $10. The money is being put into an emergency assistance fund to help journalists in dire situations.


Mayweather wins decision
in Las Vegas spectacle


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

American boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr., remains unbeaten in 48 professional bouts after earning a unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao of The Philippines in their welterweight unification title fight, in what had been promoted as the latest fight of the century.

The 38-year-old Mayweather, with his longer reach, started strong in Saturday's fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.  But left-hander Pacquiao countered aggressively in the later rounds, just not enough to overcome Mayweather's renowned defensive skills.  Mayweather was able to frustrate the 36-year-old Pacquiao, while peppering in several effective jabs and punches of his own.

The bout fell short of being great, with long periods where both fighters appeared to be cautious.  There were no knockdowns and neither boxer seemed to be seriously hurt at any time.

Two ringside judges scored the 12-round fight 116-112, while the third had it 118-110, all in favor of Mayweather.

After the fight, Pacquiao said he thought he had earned the victory.  The Philippine star fell to 57-6 with two draws.

Mayweather said after the bout he will fight one more time later this year, then retire.

The showdown between the two best boxers of their generation, although years past their prime, is expected to be the biggest-grossing prize bout of all time.  Mayweather earned at least $180 million for the fight, viewed by millions around the world on pay-per-view.


American Pharoah is winner
in 141st Kentucky Derby


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

American Pharoah, with jockey Victor Espinoza aboard, won Saturday's 141st running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

Firing Line ran second. Dortmund placed third before a record crowd of 170,513.

The victory was Espinoza's second straight triumph at the Kentucky Derby win and his third Derby win overall.

American Pharoah was trained by Bob Baffert, as was Dortmund. This was Baffert's fourth Derby win.

The colt gave owner Ahmed Zayat his first Derby win after three second-place finishes.

"I'm speechless. We were very close before,'' Zayat said. "We are very blessed.''

The second jewel of U.S. horse racing's Triple Crown, the Preakness, is in two weeks in Baltimore, Maryland.  The third race, the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York, is June 6.

No horse has won the Triple Crown since Affirmed won with Steve Cauthen aboard in 1978.


Trade promotion authority
may be in jeopardy in D.C.


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

The Obama administration is pressing hard to win approval of controversial trade legislation in Congress, as a series of news reports say the Trade promotion authority bill is in trouble. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said there is still important work to be done on this issue.

The effort includes a gathering of dozens of moderate Democrats at the White House, a briefing by a top economic official for the press, and a campaign-style trip by Obama to a major exporter on the West Coast.

House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, says his party strongly supports trade and urged Obama to step up his game in terms of persuading skeptical Democrats to vote for trade legislation.

The first issue is trade promotion authority which is sometimes called Fast Track. The bill is strongly opposed by many of ObamaÝs usual allies in the labor and environmental movements and a number of  his fellow Democrats in Congress.

The trade promotion authority would set rules for congressional consideration of other trade agreements with Pacific nations and the European Union. Trade promotion authority would allow members of Congress to approve or reject proposed trade deals, but not permit them to make changes.

Trade promotion authority supporters say U.S. trading partners are not going to make their best offer in negotiations if they expect the U.S. Congress to pick apart the measure.

Trade promotion authority opponents say Congress should not surrender authority to another branch of government. They also criticize the proposed agreements: The Trans Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. Critics argue that these two proposed agreements and previous trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement do too little to protect U.S. workers and the environment, and in some cases, give too much legal clout to foreign companies.

But White House Spokesman Earnest says the new agreements are an improvement over the North American Free Trade Agreement because they include enforceable provisions to protect labor and the environment. And since the North American Free Trade Agreement member nations Canada and Mexico would be part of the new deal, it is a chance to redress problems with the prior deal.

Earnest says Obama believes that raising labor and environmental standards in nations that trade with the United States will level the playing field for U.S. firms. That is because when U.S. competitors have to go to the trouble and expense of meeting these standards, American firms that have to meet similar standards will no longer be at a competitive disadvantage.

The leading Democrat in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, said trade deals might get more votes if there were some accommodations to meet the concerns of critics.

She said the current proposal offers far too little money for a program that retrains workers displaced by trade deals for new jobs in the future. 

Ms. Pelosi told journalists that, so far, she does not see any big movement toward support among her fellow Democrats.

   
U.S. unemployment claims
reach a 15-year low for week


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

U.S. jobless claims fell to a 15-year low last week, as the number of Americans signing up for unemployment aid fell 34,000 to a nationwide total of 262,000.

Thursday's report from the Labor Department shows that's the lowest level of job layoffs since the year 2000.

Economists say weekly claims below 300,000 are evidence of an improving job market.

Last month's unemployment rate was 5.5. percent, and a report from Credit Suisse says the jobless rate will probably fall below 5 percent by the end of next year.  The report's author says continued U.S. economic recovery could put another 2.5 million people back to work over the next two years.

A separate Labor Department study showed wages rising 2.6 percent from the same time a year ago, which is a bit faster than the rate that prices are going up.

Rising wages may have contributed to gains in consumer spending, which the Commerce Department says rose four-tenths of a percent in March.  Experts watch consumer spending closely because consumer demand drives most U.S. economic activity.
