WASHINGTON, DC — On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans took to streets, parks, and auditoriums to protest environmental degradation. This first Earth Day sparked the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.

Twenty years later, one of Earth Day’s original organizers, Denis Hayes, appeared at the National Press Club, Washington, DC. He announced the launch of Earth Day as a global organization, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries.

On Monday, April 22, 2019, Denis Hayes will again return to the National Press Club to announce major global mobilizations ahead of Earth Day’s 50th anniversary, including “Vote for the Earth,” “Earth Challenge 2020,” and the 2020 theme for Earth Day, which will focus on global demand for transformative climate action.

This news conference will take place at 10:00 a.m. in the Club’s Zenger Room and is open to credentialed media and members of the Club.

The National Press Club is located on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C.


• River Ganges Initiative 2019 Kickstarts India’s Earth Day 2020 Plans as Part of the 50th Anniversary Great Global Cleanup.

Washington DC/New Delhi — A landmark citizen-led cleanup of the iconic River the Ganges is to be launched by the Earth Day Network as part of comprehensive plans to mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

The initiative gets underway as part of Earth Day 2019 high in the Himalayan mountains at Devaprayag where two glacier-fed streams meet to form India’s most famous and sacred river.

This first phase will evolve over the next 15 months to encompass 100 cities and towns close to the Ganges—known as the Ganga in India- as it meanders to the famous Sunderbans Delta.

Kathleen Rogers, President of Earth Day Network, said: “The project on the Ganges will serve as a lightning rod for many more countries and communities to get involved worldwide. As we transition into Earth Day 2020, we will mark the anniversary with a myriad of events including what we are calling the Great Global Cleanup.”

Anil Arora, Director of Partnerships, Earth Day Network, added: ‘’This is a people’s movement that will help those at the grassroots level understand that keeping the Holy Ganges clean is beneficial to them. It will make them a part of the campaign to keep it clean. While on the policy level, the government has several schemes in place to clean the Ganges, this will be a bottom-up approach in support of the government initiatives.’’

Karuna Singh, Earth Day Network’s Regional Director Asia and Country Director in India, added: “Clean up of the Ganges has a potentially significant role to play. Take plastics as just one barometer - according to the World Economic Forum, ninety percent of plastic pollution in the ocean comes from ten rivers, eight of which are in Asia and two in India - including the Ganges.”

NEW YORK, April 15, 2019 — Reuters, the world’s largest multimedia news provider, was today awarded two 2019 Pulitzer Prizes from Columbia University. It is for the second consecutive year that Reuters has received two Pulitzer Prizes.

Reuters journalists Wa Lone, Kyaw Soe Oo, and their colleagues were recognized as co-winners, alongside the Associated Press, in the International Reporting category, for their series of investigations on the mass expulsion of the Rohingya from Myanmar.

Reuters photographers Mike Blake, Lucy Nicholson, Loren Elliott, Edgard Garrido, Adrees Latif, Goran Tomasevic, Kim Kyung Hoon, Alkis Konstantinidis, Carlos Garcia Rawlins, Carlos Barria and Ueslei Marcelino were recognized in the Breaking News Photography category, for their photos of the mass migration of Central and South Americans towards the U.S. border, and its aftermath. Awarding the prize to Reuters, the Pulitzer committee recognized the team for “a vivid and startling visual narrative of the urgency, desperation, and sadness of migrants as they journeyed to the U.S. from Central and South America.”

“While it’s gratifying that we got recognized for the work, public attention should be focused more on the people about whom we report than on us: in this case, the Rohingya and the Central American migrants,” said Reuters Editor-in-Chief Stephen J. Adler.

“I’m thrilled that Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo and their colleagues have been recognized for their extraordinary, courageous coverage, and our photojournalists for their moving pictures that show humanity defying huge obstacles,” said Adler.

Reuters, the news and media division of Thomson Reuters, is the world’s largest multimedia news provider, reaching billions of people every day.

Lausanne, Switzerland, April 14, 2019 — Some 350 athlete representatives from 185 National Olympic Committees (NOCs), 50 International Federations (IFs), five continental Athletes Commissions (ACs), the ACs of all the Organising Committees of the upcoming Olympic Games, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the World Olympians Association (WOA) met over the past three days in Lausanne for the 9th edition of the International Athletes’ Forum (IAF). It was the biggest ever gathering of official athlete representatives. Also attending was IOC President Thomas Bach, Olympic Champion in fencing in Montreal 1976 and member of the first IOC Athletes’ Commission in 1981.

“This IAF was empowering, exciting and unifying,” highlighted Kirsty Coventry, IOC AC Chair.

“We had a very productive meeting,” said IOC AC Vice Chair Danka Bartekova, who led the discussions. “The IOC Athletes’ Commission will take the proposals to the IOC Executive Board. The IOC President has told me in our discussions during the Forum that he will fully support our recommendations.

“We look forward to their implementation, which will ensure that the support for athletes at all levels is improved even further.”

Advance screening of upcoming film 'Peterloo,' exclusively for National Press Club members

National Press Club

National Press Club, Peterloo

Washington, D.C. — Amazon Studios is inviting National Press Club members (and one guest) to attend a free screening of the historical documentary “Peterloo” at the Landmark E Street Cinema, 555 11th St. N.W., Thursday, March 28, at 7 P.M.

A Q&A will follow the movie with director Mike Leigh. Julian Borger, Editor at The Guardian, will moderate the Q&A.

The producers describe the documentary as “an epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter’s Field in Manchester, England, turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of more than 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. The forces killed many protesters and injured hundreds more, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.”

(The screening is at the Landmark ‘E Street Cinema’ at 555 11th St NW, and not at the Club.)

Lebanese director Nadine Labaki is President of Un Certain Regard Jury at Festival de Cannes 2019

Cannes, France, March 26, 2019 — After moving hearts and minds at the last Festival de Cannes with her Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominated Capernaum, which won the Jury Prize in Cannes, Lebanese director Nadine Labaki will be taking over from actor Benicio Del Toro as President of the Un Certain Regard Jury for the 72nd edition of the Festival.

Nadine Labaki’s three feature films catapulted her to international fame, from the Festival de Cannes’ red carpet to the Oscars ceremony a few months ago.

“I remember back when I used to come to Cannes as a film student, I was so excited to experience the world’s most prestigious festival,” she stated. “Back then, it seemed so out of reach to me. I remember getting up early in the morning and the endless queues to get a ticket. It looks like yesterday, but it was fifteen years ago that I filled in the Festival de Cannes’ Cinéfondation registration form, my heart full of hope and my hand shaking.

“Today, I am the President of the Un Certain Regard Jury, which goes to show that sometimes life can be even better than your dreams. I can’t wait to see the films in the Selection. I can’t wait to debate and discuss, to be shaken up, to find inspiration in other artists’ work,” Nadine Labaki explained.

After graduating in audiovisual studies from the University of Beirut, she directed adverts and music videos that frequently won awards. In 2004, she embarked on a Festival de Cannes Cinéfondation Residency to write and develop Caramel, her first feature film, shot two years later and showcased at the Directors’ Fortnight in 2007. This joyous, rebellious ode to female camaraderie was distributed worldwide and became the most successful Lebanese film export of all time. Nadine Labaki continued to explore the female condition, and religious tensions in “Where Do We Go Now?”, a bold, universal fable on tolerance that premiered at Un Certain Regard in 2011.

In 2018, Nadine Labaki was selected for Competition with her powerfully moving Capernaum, a poignant manifesto on damaged childhood, refugees and the cracks in a society that turns its back on humanity. Nadine Labaki won the Jury Prize, that year chaired by Cate Blanchett, and gave an unforgettable speech. Nominated for a Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, Capernaum made its Lebanese director the first woman from the Arabic-speaking world to be nominated in this category.

“To the directors whose films have been selected for Un Certain Regard this year, I would like to say that as a child, I would spend hours gazing out of my bedroom window, watching the world go by. These same eyes can’t wait to watch their films!,” Nadine Labaki said.

The Un Certain Regard screenings will kick off on May 15 with an introduction of the Jury in the evening, a day after the opening of the 72nd edition of the Festival de Cannes on Tuesday, May 14. The jury will announce the Un Certain Regard winners on Friday, May 24.

Cannes, France — “Cannes is a festival that has been important to me since the beginning of my career. I am humbled and thrilled to return this year with the immense honor of presiding over the Jury,” Alejandro González Iñárritu said on being appointed the Jury President. “Cinema runs through the veins of the planet, and this festival has been its heart. We on the jury will have the privilege to witness the new and excellent work of fellow filmmakers from all over the planet.”

Pierre Lescure, President of the Festival de Cannes, expressed his delight that the filmmaker has accepted their invitation. “It is very rare for Alejandro G. Iñárritu to agree to take part in a jury, and this is the first time that the Festival de Cannes Jury is to be chaired by a Latin American filmmaker. Cannes embraces all types of cinema, and through the presence of the Babel’s director, it is Mexican cinema that the Festival will be celebrating,” Mr. Lescure stated. “Not only is he a daring filmmaker and a director who is full of surprises, but Alejandro is also a man of conviction, an artist of his time.”

Iñárritu is the first Mexican filmmaker to be nominated for either director or producer in the history of the Academy Awards and the first Mexican filmmaker to receive the Best Director award at the Festival de Cannes.

Iñárritu took home the prize for Best Director, Best Picture as well as Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography at the 87th Academy Awards for the dark comedy, Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance).

The following year, Iñárritu won his second consecutive Academy Award for Best Director for The Revenant, a meditation on revenge and brutal colonization of the west through the extinction of the natives, mixed blood prejudices and nature exploitation starring Best Actor Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Festival de Cannes 2019 will take place from Tuesday 14 to Saturday 25 May.

WASHINGTON, March 8, 2019 — As America approaches the 16th anniversary of the war in Iraq, combat Veteran, and U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth will speak at a National Press Club Headliners Newsmaker on Wednesday, March 13 at 12:30 p.m. She will talk about how she feels the U.S. Congress is failing in its duty to provide the U.S. troops with the moral and legal backing they need and deserve to most effectively wage war.

In her remarks, Duckworth will lay out her vision for how Americans can ensure their military remains the strongest in the world. She will argue that America can no longer view its national security interests as separate and distinct from its domestic policies. She will make a case for investing in progressive priorities like healthcare, education and green energy as a means to bolster America’s national strength and better serve its military readiness.

This news conference will take place in the Club’s Holeman Lounge, and is open to credentialed media and members of the National Press Club.

The National Press Club is located on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C.

• Club member Waterfield plans to publish history about London at War.

National Press Club

Larry Waterfield, a member of the National Press Club, is looking forward to seeing his book, Metropolis at War: London, published in New York and London.

“There was terror on a grand scale,” Waterfield wrote, explaining that we may live in the “age of terror” but in World War II, London, the biggest city in the world at the time, faced five years of terror bombing, terror rockets, the threat of invasion, occupation, starvation and a submarine blockade that cut off food and supplies.

The city struggled on, the large newspapers printed, the movie studios made films, the BBC broadcast worldwide in dozens of languages, he said.

Waterfield notes there is new information because key bits were kept secret until recently: a plan to invade Ireland, and a plan to control India.

The publisher is Austin Macauley Publishers.

WASHINGTON, March 9, 2019 — The Dow Jones Industrial Average broke the record in 2018 for the most significant daily point gain with investors’ spirits buoyed by low unemployment rates, high GDP growth, rising corporate profits, and a significant roll-back on banking regulations and the corporate tax rate. The Dow also broke records last year for the largest daily point loss as Trump’s ongoing trade war with China and fears of interest rate hikes tested investors’ nerves.

On Tuesday, April 23, Larry Kudlow, the Director of the National Economic Council under President Trump, will speak on the recent trend in market volatility and what other factors may affect the US and the Global Economy at a National Press Club Headliners Luncheon.

Lunch will be served in the Club’s Holeman Lounge at 12:30 p.m. with remarks beginning at 1 p.m. followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m.

The National Press Club is located on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, March 8, 2019 — Two of America’s most prominent voices against gerrymandering will share the stage for the first time on March 26 immediately following oral arguments in two anti-gerrymandering cases at the U.S. Supreme Court. Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General, and Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will discuss why they believe redistricting reform is crucial to the future of US democracy at a National Press Club Headliners event on March 26 at 12:30 p.m.

This bipartisan dialogue comes as the Court considers whether the Republican gerrymandering in Rucho v. Common Cause and the Democratic gerrymandering in Lamone v. Benisek are unconstitutional. A decision by the court could accelerate the state-by-state movement to draw good maps in the 2021 redistricting process.

This event will take place in the Club’s Holeman Lounge, and is open to credentialed media and members of the National Press Club.

The Prime Minister said that with the new Civil Terminal in Hindon Airport, people of Ghaziabad could take air travel to other cities from Ghaziabad itself, instead of going to Delhi.

The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System, built at the cost of Rs. 30000 crore, is the first of such transport system in India, Prime Minister Modi said. He stated that the modern infrastructure in Ghaziabad would ensure Ease of Living for the people in the city and nearby areas.

New Delhi, March 06, 2019 — The President of India, Ram Nath Kovind, presented the Swachh Survekshan (Clean City Survey) Awards 2019, an initiative of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India, at a function held in New Delhi on March 6, 2019.

The President said that India has made remarkable progress towards achieving the goals of rural and urban sanitation. Today, a city or village is identified by its emphasis on cleanliness. By winning the first prize in all the four surveys so far, Indore has set an example for other urban centers.

The President said that cleanliness should be integral to the behavior of every citizen to make it practical and sustainable. Many people pay attention to personal hygiene but remain apathetic to public and community cleanliness. Change in this mentality is essential for achieving the goals of Swachh Bharat. He urged educational institutions to include cleanliness in their curriculum and spread awareness about the importance of sanitation.
