June 16, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance to go further Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Organisation Help by sharing this information Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa News Reporters Without Borders is deeply concerned by the arrests on 16 June of journalist Tor Dagfinn Dommersnes and photographer Fredrik Refvem of the Norwegian daily Stavanger Aftenblad, who have been declared “persona non grata”.The international press freedom organisation called on the Moroccan authorities to allow the journalists, who complied with all the necessary formalities, to be allowed to travel freely. It recalled that Norwegian journalist Erik Hagen was expelled on 5 April 2004 and French journalist Catherine Graciet with French photographer Nadia Ferroukhi on 28 January 2004.”The Moroccan authorities keep a close watch on the activities and movements of journalists and try to stop any independent reporting on Western Sahara,” said the organisation.”We have accounts from foreign journalists who had not even interviewed their contacts when they were arrested and expelled. It is obvious that foreign journalists are followed and their phones tapped. These arrests and obstruction of press freedom are extremely serious. We call on the Moroccan authorities to cancel the decision to expel Tor Dagfinn Dommersnes and Fredrik Refvem”.Four security agents arrested the two journalists in their rooms at the Sofitel Hotel in Rabat on the grounds that they were “persona non grata” and were “breaking Moroccan law”. The journalists had press visas and permission to take photographs.They had arrived three days earlier and were about to interview someone about the Western Sahara question at 10am. Dommersnes had phoned the contact from the hotel the evening before to make an appointment.”The security services were very probably aware of the phone call and that led to our arrest,” Dommersnes told Reporters Without Borders by telephone as he was about to be expelled to France.Reporters Without Borders recalled that on 5 April 2004, Norwegian journalist Erik Hagen was deported from Laayoune in southern Morocco to Mauritania. Police arrested the journalist who had travelled there to meet human rights activists and former political prisoners.He was questioned by police for several hours about the reasons for his visit to the Sahara and was accused of working with the Polisario. He was expelled to Mauritania under escort by two police officers on a 26-hour bus ride. His passport was returned to him at the border. Knowing that journalists were not welcome in Western Sahara, he had said he was a tourist. “The authorities never even asked what permission I had during the questioning. It was because I was going to meet human rights activists, considered by police to be separatists and because my visit was a ‘provocation’ to the kingdom that I was expelled,” Hagen told Reporters Without Borders.French freelance journalist Catherine Graciet and French photographer Nadia Ferroukhi were expelled on 28 January 2004 when they arrived in Laayoune to meet human rights activists who back independence for Western Sahara. In the morning, before leaving Agadir, they had talked to students about the Western Sahara question. They were arrested a few hours later at a roadblock in Tarfaya and were questioned at length by security forces then taken back to Agadir and deported to France. The French Consul, who had asked to see them since they were French nationals, was unable to meet them.

In 1952, the Broders of St. Gallen, Switzerland, officially became the Broders of Stockbridge, Georgia.Hans and Margrit Broder raised their eight children with one foot in the deep South of 1960s Stockbridge and the other foot in the Swiss Alps. Growing up in two cultures gave their children an appreciation of the vast diversity of the world around them.“We actually lived in two worlds,” said Joe Broder, associate dean for academic affairs for the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) and third-oldest child of the Broder eight. “We lived in Switzerland when we came home and in America when we went to school … It was interesting because we lived in two cultures and, in the South, a lot of kids didn’t have that opportunity.”Seven of the eight Broder children graduated from CAES, where Joe Broder now serves as associate dean. The children brought their global worldview with them when they came to the university’s campus in Athens, Georgia. Today, they’re still working to encourage global citizenship in CAES students.This year the Broder children endowed the Broder-Ackermann Global Citizenship Award in honor of their parents. Hans Broder was an agriculture teacher who was hired to run a Swiss-owned dairy in Stockbridge with his wife Margrit Ackermann. Together they raised eight children who have maintained their family’s Swiss heritage.The award will be given each year to a CAES student who demonstrates dedication to global citizenship by working and studying abroad or being engaged with the international community in Athens.“They worked for us. They did everything for us,” said Joe Broder. “We wanted to recognize them not only for everything they did for us, but for being globally minded. Coming here opened doors for all of us, and we wanted to pay them back for the gift they gave to us.”The Broder-Ackermann award is supported by gifts from Joe Broder, who received a bachelor’s degree in agriculture in 1971; Hans Broder Jr., who received a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1969; Charles Broder, who received a bachelor’s degree in agriculture in 1975; Michael Broder, who received a bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering in 1976; Patrick Broder, who received a bachelor’s degree in agriculture in 1977; Peter Broder, who received a bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering in 1982; Angela Broder Nemeth, who received a bachelor’s degree in agriculture in 1983; and in memory of Margrit Broder Scruggs.Broder Scruggs was the only Broder child who did not attend CAES, opting instead to attend St. Joseph’s Nursing School in Atlanta and spend her life as a psychiatric nurse.Patrick Broder, Hans Broder Jr. and Josef Broder were on hand April 18 at CAES’s seventh annual International Agriculture Day reception to recognize the inaugural winner of the Broder-Ackermann Global Citizen Award, Samaria Aluko. Aluko will receive a $1,000 scholarship to support her work.Aluko is a third-year CAES student from Acworth, Georgia, who is studying biological science. Aluko is interested in public health and improving the health of marginalized communities. She has studied abroad, speaks multiple languages and works with public health organizations in Georgia to provide health care to refugee communities. She has worked with the student group [email protected] to develop an app that will be used in communities in Uganda to equip women with the information they need to have healthier pregnancies.
