Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Détroit (Michigan)] C’est un appel à « un ministère d’envergure pour l’Amérique » qu’à lancé l’ancien sénateur républicain du Missouri John Danforth à l’Église épiscopale le 16 septembre, afin qu’elle mette en oeuvre sa double vocation, pastorale et prophétique, au sein “d’un ministère de guérison pour une nation qui a besoin de guérison ».John Danforth, prêtre épiscopalien, avocat et écrivain qui a siégé au Sénat des États-Unis de 1976 à 1995 a déclaré à la Chambre des Évêques : « le politicien de longue date que je suis, sait que l’Amérique a besoin de nous, l’épiscopalien dévoué que je suis, croit que Jésus nous appelle » à faire preuve d’audace dans le climat politique et civique actuel.Les épiscopaliens« doivent être des évangélistes auprès de tous les Américains, particulièrement auprès des Américains les plus idéalistes, les jeunes qui veulent changer le monde. Nous devons être les voix qui les appellent à le faire », a-t-il déclaré.L’appel aux épiscopaliens à exercer ce ministère peut être vu comme une occasion émanant des circonstances actuelles aux Etats-Unis ou comme le devoir patriotique des citoyens ou encore comme un appel de Dieu, voire comme les trois à la fois, a poursuivi John Danforth.L’ancien sénateur et ambassadeur auprès des Nations Unies dénonce ce qu’il considère comme des politiciens faisant appel à la peur des gens et capitalisant sur la tendance de la société à valoriser les intérêts personnels plutôt que le bien commun. John Danforth argue du fait que les États-Unis ont perdu de vue l’engagement des pères fondateurs envers ce qu’ils appelaient la « vertu » et qu’il décrit comme le fait de placer le bien commun au-dessus de l’intérêt personnel. L’Église épiscopale doit rappeler aux gens cette vertu parce qu’il semble que personne d’autre ne le fasse, poursuit-il.« Le modèle pour nous est la croix et c’est le contraire de l’égocentricité », déclare John Danforth.Si Jésus nous demande d’aimer nos ennemis, il faut à coup sûr que nous aimions les gens qui ont des idées contraires aux nôtres. « Un adversaire politique n’est pas un ennemi, pas dans ce pays » dit-il, ajoutant que la haine est ce qui est inquiétant en politique aujourd’hui.Il a remis aux évêques un programme en trois volets pour ce qui, selon lui, doit être un ministère de réconciliation. Tout d’abord, l’église doit adopter et diffuser un message clair sur « qui nous avons précisément l’intention d’être » et « énoncer brièvement et clairement ce que nous avons l’intention de faire ». En second lieu, l’église doit élaborer et adopter des politiques pour mettre en application le message car « nous devons aller par-delà les slogans ». Troisièmement, « notre évêque primat nous fournit une occasion unique de pouvoir parler avec force extra-muros » et il nous faut l’habiliter à le faire.« Il a un don très particulier et nous ne devrions pas enterrer ce don » poursuit John Danforth. « Je n’ai jamais connu quelqu’un dans l’Église épiscopale qui soit capable de prêcher l’évangile au monde, mieux que notre évêque primat ».Alors que les évêques commençaient d’applaudir, John Danforth d’ajouter : « Faisons de lui le visage de l’église auprès du public. Chaque jour passé dans son bureau serait mieux employé sur la route. Nous devrions le libérer des responsabilités administratives et de “religiosité », et trouver les moyens de l’exposer à un public le plus large possible ».L’ancien Sénateur John Danforth (Républicain-Missouri), prêtre épiscopalien, au centre, parle avec l’évêque de Chicago Jeffrey D. Lee, à gauche, et l’évêque du Missouri Wayne Smith, avant son exposé du 16 septembre à la Chambre des Évêques. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceJohn Danforth reconnait que les épiscopaliens ont des avis divergents sur les occasions où l’église doit faire entendre sa voix prophétique et celles où elle doit employer sa voix pastorale.Il prend l’exemple d’un groupe de prêtres qui s’est confronté à des officiers de police en leur demandant de se repentir publiquement suite au meurtre de Michael Brown à Ferguson (État du Missouri). Cette demande a pu être ressentie comme prophétique, dit-il, mais c’était faire là un procès d’intention qui présupposait que ces officiers de police avaient besoin de se repentir. Une approche pastorale aurait pré-supposé que les officiers de police étaient de braves gens et il aurait été fait appel à leur bonté, ajoute-t-il.L’évêque du Diocèse de Washington Mariann Budde, la présidente de la Chambre des Députés la révérende Gay Clark Jennings et la révérende Kim Jackson, aumônier de l’Absalom Jones Episcopal Center à Atlanta (état de Géorgie), ont fait partie d’un panel pour répondre aux remarques de John Danforth.Mariann Budde convient que les gens sont demandeurs d’une voix prophétique. Elle ajoute que beaucoup, voire la majeure partie de ces gens vivent en marge de la société et non pas en son centre privilégié. Elle reconnaît qu’elle lutte pour discerner à quel moment la voix prophétique est nécessaire et à quel moment la voix pastorale est de mise. « Je sais que la voix prophétique est habituellement ce qui nous permet d’arrêter de tergiverser car personne ne renonce à un privilège sur simple demande » explique-t-elle. « Il faut généralement que ce soit exigé et que ce soit exigé d’une manière qui initialement est toujours offensante ».Kim Jackson en est convenue, disant que bien souvent « le bien commun n’inclut pas beaucoup de gens ». C’est ainsi, poursuit-elle, qu’elle considère qu’une bonne partie de son ministère consiste à militer auprès de l’Assemblée législative de Géorgie et ailleurs car, en tant que jeune séminariste et prêtre, elle a été inspirée et appris à militer à travers l’exemple de ce que fait l’Église. Et elle a appris que militer est affaire de relations.« Je pense que c’est ce que nous faisons en tant qu’Église » explique-t-elle. « Nous trouvons la façon de parler à des gens qui sont différents de nous, la façon d’atteindre un compromis et également la façon de faire front commun même si nous sommes dans des camps très différents ».Gay Jennings déclare que la présence de l’Église épiscopale dans dix-sept pays signifie que l’appel de John Danforth pourrait être mis en œuvre dans un grand nombre de systèmes politiques différents.L’évêque du Diocèse de Washington Mariann Budde, à gauche, la présidente de la Chambre des Députés la révérende Gay Clark Jennings et la révérende Kim Jackson, aumônier de l’Absalom Jones Episcopal Center à Atlanta (Géorgie), discutent de leurs réactions à l’exposé du 16 septembre de l’ancien Sénateur John Danforth à la Chambre des Évêques. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceElle se dit opposée à l’une des suggestions du sénateur, que l’église passe trop de temps à passer des résolutions qui, selon lui, ne mènent en fin de compte à pas grand-chose. « Nous pouvons aider à changer le ton [du débat politique] et nous pouvons également militer » déclare-t-elle.« Il nous arrive probablement de nous mêler parfois de questions que nous devrions laisser à d’autres mais, lorsque nous choisissons de défendre certaines positions d’après moi, c’est pour être en mesure de remplir notre engagement baptismal en cherchant à être au service du Christ auprès de toute personne et à respecter la dignité de chaque être humain » explique Gay Jennings.La Chambre des Évêques se réunit à l’hôtel Westin Book Cadillac dans le centre ville de Détroit.

This project is the refurbishment and extension at ground floor level of a Grade II listed cottage within a conservation area in Bury St Edmunds. The extension is resolutely contemporary, using a simple palette of oak, brick and frameless glazing in an elegant pitched roof arrangement which is sympathetic to the original house. The Bury Society commented that the project “shows how a well-designed contemporary extension can complement an existing older building”.Save this picture!Section A-A’The ground floor of the house was extensively re-planned, with the rooms at the front of the house lightly refurbished. To the rear of the plan a new 8-metre long pitched roof single storey extension creates an open plan kitchen/diner with direct access and views onto the garden. The room is flooded with natural light by 4 roof lights and incorporates an oak floor, which gives visual clarity to accentuate the form of the extension. The shift in levels between the interior floor level and the garden has been harnessed to create an unusual and intimate relationship with the garden.Save this picture!© Mariell Lind HansenA trapezoidal door made of kiln dried tongue and groove English oak leads to a shallow flight of three brick steps up to garden level. The seat-height cill of the large, frameless, corner-glazed window is level with the ground outside, creating a seamless visual continuity between inside and out. As with the main living space, which employs a limited palette of materials (natural slate, lots of lead, english oak, lime render, soft red bricks), the kitchen and bathrooms demonstrate how a high quality finish can be achieved with a limited budget through the careful assembly of low cost utilitarian materials (white tiles, cork floor, and white formica faced ply).

Fundraisers’ salaries rose by an average of 4% during 2007, according to the latest annual Fundraising Salary Survey by fundraising recruitment specialist The Kage Partnership. The largest increases were enjoyed by direct marketers.It was direct marketers and, for the first time in years, corporate fundraisers who were in shortest supply. This might be because, according to the report, the flow of good quality commercial candidates to the charity sector has “diminished markedly this year”.This year, trust fundraisers have been difficult to retain: more of them have moved jobs than in previous years.The report is based on advertised salaries for fundraising vacancies from over 150 charities.To celebrate their tenth anniversary, Kage Partnership has taken the opportunity to track changes in salaries since Evelyn Kirby and Liz Grimes set it up. Over the last 10 years, fundraisers’ salaries have risen by an average of 30%, with the largest increase (39%) in the ‘manager’ category.You can read the Kage Partnership Fundraising Salary Report 2008 in the attachment below.www.kagep.com Kage report 30% increase in fundraising salaries over past 10 years Tagged with: Recruitment / people Research / statistics Howard Lake | 4 January 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis kage_salary_report_2008.doc61.5 KB Advertisement 24 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

MCAI’s Honorary Country Director for Cameroon, Dr Alison Earley said: “This will mean so much to the families that we help. Burkitt’s lymphoma is such a painful illness and without our support families just can’t afford chemotherapy or travel.”The fundraising target announced by Key Travel will ensure that ten children will be able to have chemotherapy treatment which their families would otherwise not be able to afford. An essential part of the project is to also offer appropriate palliative care for children whose cancer hasn’t been caught in time. Key Travel’s COO, Steve Summers said: “ MCAI was chosen by Key Travel staff from a shortlist of 3 charities. The subject of cancer is close to everyone’s hearts and the work MCAI does in Cameroon is extremely valuable. We will be organising a range of fundraising events throughout the year to get staff involved and hope to raise as much money as we can to help these children have long, happy and healthy lives.”Burkitt’s lymphoma (BL) is a particularly aggressive cancer of the lymph system. It’s the fastest growing tumour in man and can double in size in 24 hours. It affects children from two to sixteen years and is very rare in the UK but more common in tropical Africa. MCAI has already treated 150 children and is looking forward to the benefits a successful year of Key Travel fundraising events will bring.www.mcai.org.ukwww.keytravel.como MCAI (Maternal & Childhealth Advocacy International) is an international maternal and child healthcare charity dedicated to saving the lives of seriously ill pregnant women, children and babies in countries where there is extreme poverty.o Key Travel is Europe’s leading Travel Management Company (TMC) dedicated to the not-for-profit sector.

The mainstream media would have most of us believe that the current struggle at Standing Rock, N.D., is all about clean water — that its only focus is stopping the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) from running through Indigenous reservation land. And, yes, it is about these things. But while such a narrative may create “hot headlines,” it fails to capture the full truth and essence of what‘s really going on there.On Sept. 9 through Sept. 12, our Workers World Party delegation gathered with 8,000 others in answer to the national call to mobilize for support. I realized that Standing Rock is actually an entire race of peoples’ fight for sovereignty and complete liberation, a fight for the right to exist without forced displacement and assimilation.Standing Rock’s “stand-off for water” is a struggle against corporate interests, a struggle against greed and the big oil companies — and against the ruling class and white supremacist power structure.Resistance, unity and mass consciousnessShortly after our flight into Bismarck, N.D., we went to the state Capitol building, where I began to realize that this was much bigger than just a fight for water. Is water a central component to this struggle? Yes, yes, it is. But what I shortly realized, as local members of the Indigenous community began to gather, and as school-aged Native youth began to march down the street in the rain, is that the significance of the developments at Standing Rock was nothing short of historically majestic. This “local protest” had become monumental.Representatives of Indigenous Nations began pouring into Bismarck from all over the country and from other countries. In spite of the rain, more and more people just kept coming. A protest had become a reunion, a reunion even for some who had never spoken to each other, a reunion many thought would never happen again. The struggle for water had performed a material miracle. Resistance had created both unity and mass consciousness.It was Friday and we had just arrived. So much was unfolding, and we hadn’t even made it to the official campground at Standing Rock yet. We had merely decided to support a Bismarck protest we heard about before traveling to Standing Rock, getting settled and set up for the evening. After the protest, we finally arrived at the Main Camp at Standing Rock late on Friday afternoon, with plenty of time before dark. We debated for a half hour about where to pitch our tent, and finally found a spot.Word broke during camp that evening that the Obama administration and the U.S. government had decided to temporarily “halt” further construction of DAPL in the immediate Lake Oahe area by Standing Rock. But certainly the overall DAPL project had not been canceled in North Dakota or elsewhere.Indigenous Nations came from all over: Ontario (Canada), Hawaii, Ecuador, Jamaica, Alaska, Massachusetts, California. There were elders and small children, women and men.Main Camp organizers noted that over 260 Nations had gathered, the largest of any such gathering since Wounded Knee in 1973. Morale was high, but people were still leery of the government. After 500 years of colonial lies, false promises and broken treaties, many of the elders had seen this story before. They reminded the media and informed the various nations to stay vigilant.As organizer and Standing Rock Sioux elder Phyllis Young stated: “Our freedom is in our DNA. Our culture is bigger than the U.S. Constitution. When one nation’s rights are violated, we are all violated.” On the subject of false treaties, Young reminded us that “these agreements are problematic because they do not recognize our sovereignty. They have not kept their promises.”Building collective memoryOur time and efforts were divided between four different encampments. If you’re coming from Bismarck, the first encampment you’ll approach is “The Frontline.” This was the site where private security firm G4S sprayed the Water Protectors with pepper spray and prompted dogs to attack women and defenseless children.Just off the road, the camp is small in size, but well-guarded and protected. A few yards behind the company’s barbed wire gates, you can actually see the uprooted soil, courtesy of U.S. Army Engineers and private construction vehicles. North Dakota later issued a misdemeanor warrant for Democracy Now host, Amy Goodman, for simply documenting what happened there.Main Camp is where the masses reside — a 20-acre plot of flatland surrounded by sacred burial space, “Facebook Hill” (where people can pick up enough cell service to post on social media), and scattered marsh remnants of the Missouri and Cannonball rivers. Main Camp is where most of the socializing and public assemblies took place.Though much smaller, Sacred Stone is probably the camp most recognized by name. Sacred Stone is the location of the initial resistance, dating back to the spring of this year.Last, but certainly not least, is Red Warrior Camp — the heavily targeted and radical youth encampment located just between Main Camp and Sacred Stone. Red Warrior Camp has really inspired and galvanized the young people. We were honored to formally meet with them the day before we left. In return, we left the Red Warrior Camp much of our camping equipment and the supplies that we could spare. Their spokesperson, Cody Hall, was arrested during the time our delegation was in ND.Main Camp, which was where we stayed, was highly organized and well laid out. Tents and tipis were sporadically spaced at the site of your own choosing. The kitchen, dry storage and main assembly circle were all conjoined. While the main circle was open-air seating, all other stations were well constructed for the harsh conditions of North Dakota.There was a medical room and camp infirmary as well as a freedom school and welcome center. There was the donation center and legal support station. There were safety teams and ground sanitation. Several thousand of us were fed, sheltered and provided for, every day. There were many participants who came on faith and with very few resources. The ingenuity required to seamlessly feed three meals a day to thousands is no small feat.In addition to the elements of traditional dance and clothing and tribal flags, there was also a special emphasis placed on remembrance — remembrance of the old names and Native languages that so many still fight to preserve, remembrance of the past freedom fighters and political prisoners. Elders and youth alike noted the important contributions of Sitting Bull and Leonard Peltier, Russell Means and John Trudell.With over 260 Indigenous nations represented, were there a few internal differences? Yes, of course. But there was also a celebration of those differences, a moment of material magic that so many were able to come together and build on their commonalities. Not only was there a collective sense of pride, urgency and organization, a collective memory was etched in communal stone, passed down to the next Seven Generations.“We want our grandchildren to see this, to be here and touch the land,” said Chief Arvol Looking Horse. “I remember my grandmother teaching me about Wounded Knee, and we have to pass this down. The story of today.”It was so important that the youth and children were able to witness such a display of unity. This is the moment that they too, will pass down to their children — the preservation of culture, history, tradition — the interconnection of water, soil, air, life — the importance of respecting the land, animals and fellow human beings.Water is life, not a businessStanding Rock is more than just a fight to stop construction vehicles from digging up the soil to lay pipes. What this is really about is the preservation of the Indigenous way of life — a way of life that walks in accord with the natural elements and resources around them — a way of life that not only honors each other but also the Earth, the land, the water. It is a way of life that deeply respects the air we breathe, the sun, the soil — a way of life that seeks to live in unity with these elements, not to somehow profit from them. Water is life, not a business.And Standing Rock is not only a struggle to create change. It is not only a struggle to defend the sovereignty of Indigenous Nations. It is, as well, part and parcel of a class struggle of the poor and working class against the interests of the super-rich.This struggle is about supporting the right to be free from corporate greed and white supremacist domination, the right for Indigenous people to determine their own destiny, the right to exist without the U.S. government meddling in the internal affairs of Native Nations and exploiting their differences to divide and conquer.What we saw and heard at Standing Rock were the effects of colonialism continuing to play out, 500 years later. Some Indigenous people have survived through surface-level assimilation, adopting more Eurocentric names, styles of dress and religious practices. Others have refused to assimilate and remain rooted in the old ways. Some favor prayer through action; others embrace a more militant form of resistance by any means necessary.The only negative aspect of our entire stay was state repression. Drones, helicopters and aerial surveillance were a constant. The road checkpoints, encampment warrants and threat of arrests were very real. Supporters and organizers were quite conscious of the repressive character of the state, yet refused to allow that presence to dampen the occasion. But I guess that’s to be expected when you’re pursuing liberation.Nearly 70 people have been arrested for simply standing in the way of DAPL, but many more are springing up to take their places. When we are talking about #NoDAPL, it’s really important that we demand that all the charges be dropped.I came to realize that we have to do more to uplift and amplify this struggle. We have to do more to connect this struggle to Black Lives Matter, to the Palestinian resistance and the Latinx movement. Everyone needs to stand with Standing Rock, and we must connect this and all the many other Indigenous struggles to the overall struggle against capitalism and white supremacy.Much thanks to Standing Rock for allowing us to be there! Long live all the Indigenous Nations!

Reports Follow the news on Gambia Gambia still needs to address challenges to press freedom January 6, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Who killed Deyda Hydara ? RSF_en GambiaAfrica to go further July 23, 2019 Find out more January 27, 2020 Find out more News GambiaAfrica News Reporters Without Borders is publishing a report of its investigation into the 16 December 2004 murder of its correspondent in The Gambia. There is a body of suspicion, based on a very similar modus operandi, that shows a resemblance between this murder and cases that have never been resolved by the police, said the organisation. It calls on President Jammeh to appoint an independent commission of investigation. Help by sharing this information Gambia: former president must stand trial for journalist’s murder Reporters Without Borders is publishing a report of its investigation into the 16 December 2004 murder of its correspondent in The Gambia, Deyda Hydara. It calls on President Yahya Jammeh to appoint an independent commission of investigation after discovering that “most witnesses are afraid of being questioned by the authorities”. The worldwide press freedom organisation has also asked for a personal meeting with the Gambian president to present its recommendations.Killers used known modus operandiThe report published after an on-the-spot investigation by a Reporters Without Borders representative in Gambia and Senegal on 21-27 December 2004, reconstructs in detail the events of the night of the murder, on the 13th anniversary of the founding of the tri-weekly The Point, edited by Deyda Hydara. Based on previously unheard testimony it retraces events in the hour leading up to the ambush and concludes that the journalist was “murdered by well-organised professionals in a premeditated operation” which could well have been aimed at “the entire management of The Point”.Reporters Without Borders also makes a link between this operation against one of the country’s most respected journalists and several other acts of brutality that targeted the opposition press in 2003 and 2004, for which nobody was ever charged.The organisation highlights common features to some of the attacks, in particular the use of cars with no number plates. The murder of Deyda Hydara also appears to be linked to a series of threats against the independent press in Gambia.Reporters Without Borders publishes in full two anonymous letters sent to Gambian journalists in 2004. The first was signed by a disbanded group of self-proclaimed supporters of the president and the second, unsigned, contained threats of violence against journalists who challenged the government. Reporters Without Borders also re-explores a murder attempt the previous year “in similar circumstances” against a lawyer, Ousman Sillah, who has since sought refuge in the United States. There is a body of suspicion, based on a very similar modus operandi, that shows a resemblance between these cases that have never been resolved by the police, said the organisation.Reporters Without Borders also points to the atmosphere of “extreme tension” against which the murder was perpetrated against the co-founder and co-owner of The Point who was also correspondent in Gambia for Agence France-Presse (AFP).Days before Hydara’s death, Gambia’s parliament passed two extremely repressive laws against the press. In its report, the organisation repeats an appeal to President Jammeh not to promulgate these two new laws and to agree a legislative framework for the press via a process of negotiation with the journalists’ union.

RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes While doing military service from 2005 to 2007, Kam photocopied classified military documents about human rights abuses by the Israel Defence Forces in the Occupied Territories and subsequently handed them to Blau. Beginning in late 2008, Blau used these documents as the basis for several articles for Haaretz, all of which were approved by the military censors, as expressly required by Israeli law. One of the articles, published in November 2008, said the IDF had violated a Supreme Court decision by carrying out targeted killings of Palestinian militants who could have been arrested. June 3, 2021 Find out more News After the journalist Anat Kam received a heavy jail sentence at the end of October for supplying Haaretz reporter Uri Blau with copies of classified military documents she had obtained while doing her military service, Reporters Without Borders wrote to attorney general Yehuda Weinstein on 3 November about the case against Blau.Blau is facing a possible seven-year sentence on a charge of “holding classified information without authorisation and without intention to harm the security of the state” under article 113-c of the criminal code. A hearing was held on 26 May and a verdict is expected soon.

This very severe punishment constitutes a clear warning to all journalists who use confidential documents as a basis for their reporting. It sends a disturbing signal for media freedom in Israel.At one point or another, all journalists receive and use classified documents. It is the basis of investigative reporting. Countless scandals and revelations of impropriety have come to light thanks to documents obtained without permission. In this case, only one question matters: was the information obtained in this manner of general interest? If it was, then media freedom takes precedence and the justice system must recognize the nature of the journalist’s work and refrain from prosecuting him.In this case, the documents involved shed a vital light on the way the IDF was operating and, in particular, its targeted killings of Palestinian militants who could have been arrested. This violated a Supreme Court order. The fact that Israel is at war does not deprive the Israeli public of its right to key information that gives it a better understanding of the way its armed forces function.This is not about endangering the country’s security. It is just a question of exercising one’s right to information about a state entity. Journalists are not above the law and army generals are not, either.Reporters Without Borders would like to point out that article 113-c of the criminal code, under which Mr. Blau is charged, has never previously been used against a journalist at any time during the past 50 years. Convicting Mr. Blau would have very negative consequences for the image of Israel and would result in its being added to the list of countries that imprison journalists just for doing their work.We therefore urge you to withdraw the charges against Mr. Blau. Investigative journalists are the cornerstone of transparency, which is essential if a society is to function in a democratic manner. They provide a vital service. Convicting him would do grave harm to the free flow of news and information.

Spatial distribution of predator/prey interactions in the Scotia Sea: implications for measuring predator/fisheries overlap
The measurement of spatial overlap between predators and fisheries exploiting a common prey source is dependent upon the measurement scale used; inappropriate scales may produce misleading results. Previous assessments of the level of overlap between predators and fisheries for Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) in the region of the South Shetland Islands used different measurement scales and arrived at contradictory conclusions. At-sea data from observations of krill predators during the CCAMLR 2000 Survey were used to identify the areas of potential overlap with fisheries in the Scotia Sea and to determine the scale at which such overlap should be measured. The relationship between autocorrelation and sampling distance was used to identify the characteristic scales of the distribution of predators, krill and krill fisheries, and an effort-corrected index of relative abundance as a function of distance from land was used to identify the characteristics of areas of high potential for overlap. Despite distinct differences in foraging ecology, a group of krill-dependent species including chinstrap penguin (Pygoscelis antarctica), (Antarctic) fur seal (Arctocephalus sp. (gazella)) and white-chinned petrel (Procellaria aequinoctialis) showed similar patterns of distribution; the relative abundances were highest at 60-120 km from land and decreased sharply at distances greater than 150 km from land. There were more inter-specific differences in the characteristic scales, which were of the order of 50-100 km. Antarctic krill had a characteristic scale of approximately 200 km and the relationship with distance from land showed a log-linear decline. Krill fisheries operate at a scale of 150 km and occur almost entirely within 100 km of land. The requirement of land for breeding and the biological and oceanographic conditions that produce the high concentrations of krill associated with those land areas produce a system in which the demand for Antarctic krill from fisheries and predators is essentially co-extensive. The areas of greatest potential overlap are within 150-200 km of land and to accommodate the scales of operation of the processes involved the extent of such overlap in these areas should be assessed at scales of 70-100 km.
