Opposition protests against politicians and police impunity

In Guinea, members of the political opposition demonstrate in the capital Conakry to demand the implementation of the political agreement on the establishment of communal elected officials and to denounce the violence of the defence and security forces. Several hundred people demonstrate on “The Prince” road, one of Conakry’s two main roads, before the situation turns into clashes between groups of young people armed with stones and the police, who respond with tear gas.

Migrant Tomato Workers Are Dying Under Mafia-Like Control (HBO)

Sixteen migrant farm laborers died this month in two separate road crashes within 48 hours of each other in Italy, sparking the workers to stage a mass walkout by the workers that has drawn international attention to the dire conditions endured by seasonal tomato pickers.

The crashes occurred close to the southern city of Foggia, which hosts half a dozen makeshift camps for illegal workers. Both accidents involved overcrowded vans carrying migrant laborers home from long shifts in the region’s tomato fields.

The vans are often operated by illicit gang members, known as the Caporali, who act as middlemen in Italy’s $3.5 billion tomato industry, supplying farm owners with cheap labor and taking a cut of the workers’ wages.

That leaves workers like Mohamed Doumbé Keita, an undocumented migrant from Guinea, earning less than $30 for a shift that can last up to 15 hours in scorching heat.

“It’s like the return of slavery,” Mohamed told VICE News. “Life is tough here. There’s no medical care, and each man fends for himself. If you don’t put in ten hours a day, you won’t even make €20.”

Though Italy’s previous government passed a new law to criminalize the Caporali as a mafia crime, it’s only now being enforced for the first time.

But the legislation targets farmers rather than the middlemen themselves, threatening a jail term of up to eight years for landowners found to be hiring laborers through the Caporali, and imposing penalties for using illegal workers.

That has angered some farmers, who feel their earnings are already squeezed by big retailers and consumer demand for cheap produce. VICE News went to Italy to see what the situation is really like.

Guinea capital paralysed by fuel price strike

The Guinean capital of Conakry is paralysed as a 25 percent hike in oil prices fuels a general strike. The movement, originally triggered for one day on July 4 by the intersyndicale CNTG-USTG (National Confederation of Guinean Workers-United Trade Union of Guinean Workers) is renewed from 9 July to 11 July.

Neonlight & Wintermute – Influx [Blackout Music]

Buy it here ► https://pro.beatport.com/release/edge/1471239

Already firmly established as one of Europe’s leading taste-maker drum & bass labels, Blackout follow Telekinesis’ rip-roaring ‘Fight Club’ EP with Edge – a collaborative five tracker from German duo Neonlight & fellow German producer Wintermute.

Set for release on March 29th, ‘Edge’ adopts a diverse approach to the genre by moving away from the neurofunk style Blackout have become synonymous with, to craft something altogether harder, darker and edgier. Lead track ‘Guinea Pig’ is all broken beat, sharp synths and raging percussion, whilst ‘Influx’ works more conventional drum & bass rhythm, amidst a darker, almost gothic backdrop. Neonlight – having already released twice via Blackout – and Wintermute also extend their collaborative imagination on the lighter ‘Posthuman’ with faded, bleepy news-bulletin interludes serving as just one example of how intricate and well-balanced their sound design is right across the EP.

Given the vibrancy and darker, club-ready feel of ‘Edge’, Neonlight & Wintermute thus feel like natural choices to continue Blackout’s fast-building legacy and further cement themselves as some of Europe’s go-to drum & bass producers.

​The VICE News Capsule is a news roundup that looks beyond the headlines. Today: Pakistani officials hanged six militants after lifting their 2008 moratorium on the death penalty, Egypt has opened the Rafah Crossing for the first time in two months, UNICEF health workers encountered resistance in rural Guinea, and an independent Russian TV station has been forced to broadcast from a cramped apartment.

PAKISTAN
Pakistani officials have waved a 2008 ban on capital punishment and hanged 6 prisoners over the weekend. Pakistani officials tried to paint the executions as a retaliation to the Peshawar school massacre last week, but the militants hanged were being held for unrelated crimes.

The Fight Against Ebola (Full Length)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa began in Guinea in December 2013. From there, it quickly spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone. Cases also appeared in Senegal and Nigeria, and there was another outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Today, Liberia is at the center of the epidemic, with more than 3,000 cases of infection. About half of them have been fatal.

As President Barack Obama announced that he would be sending American military personnel to West Africa to help combat the epidemic, VICE News traveled to Monrovia to spend time with those on the front lines of the outbreak.

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa began in Guinea in December 2013. From there, it quickly spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone. Cases also appeared in Senegal and Nigeria, and a separate outbreak appeared in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Today, Liberia lies is at the center of the epidemic, with more than 3,000 cases of infection — about half of which have been fatal. 
 
Just as President Obama announced that he would be sending American troops to help combat the epidemic, VICE News traveled to Monrovia, Liberia’s capital, to spend time with those on the front lines of the outbreak.

In Part 2, through the lens of an Ebola awareness team leader named Archie, we learn one of the main issues that is perpetuating the outbreak — confusion about the virus itself.
