In Autumn 2017, Border Force officers at Tilbury intercepted a shipment of poppy merchandise intended for the UK worth in the region of £150,000.Intellectual Property Minister Sam Gyimah said: It is truly shocking that anyone would target and exploit one of the UK’s most cherished charities and take advantage of public support for our Armed Forces community Together we can ensure donations go to the people they are intended for, by only supporting approved merchandise.

  • Jack Johnson Celebrates 4/20 With New Song About Getting Stoned With Willie Nelson

    first_img4/20 is one day away and it seems like everyone is trying to get a piece of the action: restaurants are adding weed puns to their menus, politicians are endorsing marijuana legalization legislation, and Jack Johnson is releasing a song about getting stoned with Willie Nelson.For the sake of staying on brand, let’s dive into that last one. Appropriately titled “Willie Got Me Stoned”, Johnson’s new song tells the story of a particularly hazy poker game at the Nelson residence. As Johnson notes at the beginning of the recording, “This is a song about one night after we played this festival one time. We were hanging out with Willie Nelson and it was a real honor, and we got to go back to his house and hang out. And this is a true story about that night.”According to Rolling Stone, “Willie Got Me Stoned” was recorded live during the first night of a two-night stand at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre in Englewood, CO in the summer of 2017. You can stream the tune now, though the official release won’t come until the high holiday (sorry, I couldn’t help myself) on Friday, April 20th.Jack Johnson – “Willie Got Me Stoned”[Video: jackjohnsonmusic]last_img read more

  • Motloung prepares for Mandela role

    first_imgSouth African actor Sello Motloung visited the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg to prepare for his role as Nelson Mandela in an upcoming movie, An Act of Defiance. The focus of the movie is Bram Fischer, the lead attorney for the Rivonia trialists in the 1960s.”There’s no better place to visit for in-depth research on the man and his journey,” said Motloung, following his visit.The foundation gave Motloung access to the audio records of “Speech from the Dock”, which Mandela delivered on 20 April 1964 during the Rivonia Trial. “Mandela’s 176-minute speech opened the defence case in the trial,” said the foundation.The movie is a co-production between South Africa and the Netherlands and is directed by Jean van de Velde. Peter Paul Muller takes the role of Fischer.On MandelaMotloung said he wanted to immerse himself entirely in Mandela’s journey. In doing this, he toured the foundation’s archives and permanent exhibition. It felt like he had visited Mandela himself, said the actor.”I had to suit the images and my dialogue with the life and energy that oozed through the recordings. Clearly, the man was way bigger than what one encounters in the media.”On Fischer“Bram Fischer, a white Afrikaner from powerful Afrikaner parentage, is one of the unsung heroes of the struggle for freedom in South Africa,” said Michael Auret, from production company Spier Films, speaking to movie news website, Screen Daily.”His work at the Rivonia Trial ensured that the leaders of the ANC of the time, including Nelson Mandela, lived to fight another day and ultimately lead a new South Africa.”After the Rivonia Trial, Fischer was also arrested and tried for conspiracy to overthrow the apartheid government. He was sentenced to life imprisonment.“One of those incarcerated with him was Denis Goldberg, the only white person convicted in the Rivonia Trial,” said the foundation. “Because of apartheid, he was not allowed to be held on Robben Island with Mandela and his other comrades.”An Act of Defiance is scheduled for release in March 2017.Source: The Nelson Mandela Foundation and SouthAfrica.info reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Our pro-women policies and established institutions dedicated to women have over the years facilitated their economic development.“The political will and leadership demonstrated by the South African government through the NDP 2030 underscores precisely what is required to help us reach our women and to reinvigorate them to partake in the socio-economic development pursuit of our nation.”This year – International Women’s Day 2017 will be commemorated under the theme ‘Be Bold For Change’ – a call to all global citizens to help forge a more inclusive, gender equal world.last_img read more
