LEPROSY 2019

Looking through the lenses of our cameras, as we filmed the victims

of the new mass starvation in the Nuba mountains in January, we suddenly

saw those empty eyes. Faces without ears. And hands and feet

without fingers and toes.

There, high above the savanna, in front of the mud and straw building

of the coptic church on mount Acheron, people were rotting before

our very eyes! Sick, starving, exhausted fellow humans that nobody

knows about, we were their first and so far only witness.

The responsibility for the disgusting disintegration of human bodies

in the Nuba mountains and Blue Nile lies in the shameful disintegration

of values, hearts, consciousness and conscience of privileged humanity in the

raging conflicts between all the major global economic and military

elites for control over natural resources, and the simultaneous

siege and extermination of the Nuba, the most innocent indigenous African

people.

For all of you that still care, we are working on a new documentary.

We hope it will also convince WHO and UN officials to carry out

their duty.

Please buy this calender and help us to finish the production of documentary film and stop spreading leprosy.

Opening speech on 11th European Public Health conference, Ljubljana 29th Nov. 2018

LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND, Tomo Križnar

I am convinced that we can all agree that the ideas of health for all cannot be closed into the Sanatorium, as described in the "Magic Mountain" by Thomas Mann. We cannot defend health in a giant underground bunker from the Second World War. Neither a disease can be isolated and closed into medieval leprosy asylums, in which no one enters healthy and from which the sick cannot leave.

But right now, in this same world that we all share, this is happening.

We are closing the borders of our Sanatorium and we are pretending not to see the hardship of refugees which have been forced to escape to survive. We are putting wires on our borders and are using out-dated methods from previous wars; hoping to defend the quality of life in our privileged part of the planet.

But is it not that quality of our lives depends on the quality of lives of people living in all other parts of the World?

The epidemics of diseases and endless violence, the suffering beyond the wires of "the others and the different from down there" as we often label them - affect also our health and lives, and our future - the future of our privileged world.

Those "others and different" cannot be closed into the TV screens, the contemporary asylums for lepers from which catastrophic and meaningless wars and their consequences cannot escape into our homes.

***

You, that gathered here today, are committed to public health. Your mission is a humanitarian one. Your role is to promote and work for the public good, for the well-being and prosperity of mankind of us here; and of the "others and different down there".                                

In Slovenia, we have a strong National Institute of Public Health. We have people who live and work for public health, who contribute as dedicated professionals, politicians or devoted individuals.

Our former president of state, Dr Janez Drnovšek, was one of them. Before he passed away of cancer he sent me in 2006, as his special envoy, to pick up the hot chestnuts from the embers of Darfur.

Due to his initiative that was called the "World for Darfur", people  became aware of the happenings in that most geo-strategically confusing, neurotic and, devastating enclave of the World. He did not succeed to stop the spread of the cancer of Darfur, the illness has expanded throughout Sudan, Sahel, Africa and the whole planet. It is now threatening us here, in our beautiful country on the sunny side of the Alps.

With my wife Bojana we are visiting the most marginalized areas in Africa and reporting about what we have seen and heard. We are drawing attention to those, responsible for the increasing fear and horror and for the collective apathy and depression on the Earth.

On the screen you can see the people that we have accompanied with a camera on our expeditions to southern edge of Sahara. For many decades, I have been lisening  to these “others and different" when they talked about and struggled to understand what and why is happening to them. They became my friends, my family. The two of us w are trying to capture and translate to our world, our sentiments when sharing the fate with the people who are abandoned, sick, forgotten, oppressed and deprived of all the basic human rights.

 I would like to share with you what shocked us the most during our last expedition to Nuba people and to people of the Blue Nile, Sudan. It was not the war or the persistent genocide or hunger... This time it was a disease: the unbelievable spread of a new epidemic of leprosy that affected and disabled all generations alike. What has stricken us the most was the unacceptable neglect of the right to health, to dignity and to access to medicines and health services.

We were confronted with the essence of health inequity; inability to control a dangerous communicable disease and to perform effective public health in these besieged, isolated and impenetrable provinces. There, a new civil war is undergoing after the proclamation of the new state of the Republic of South Sudan. In this abandoned part of the World the values, actions and the measures that will be discussed in the next few days during this conference, have no place.

On the screen you can see portraits of people depressed but not running away. They have no intention to leave their territory. They are the indigenous people of the Nuba Mountains and the Blue Nile and not used to migrating. This is the autochthonic population that has, due to displacement and marginalization, adapted to the survival in nature. They are the farmers, attached to their land whose wisdom they cannot transfer to other parts of the world. They would prefer to die, to be extinct; rather than to migrate and lose their land with which they identify themselves and which is fundamental for their culture, morality and ethics.

Now they are dying and can extinct because the World is depriving them from their rights to health and treatment.

The epidemic of leprosy is expanding very fast for several reasons. Because of the  the draughft the local people can no longer produce enough food, therefore they are starving. Even worst They are  in a constant stress between the airborne military attacks and attacks from the ground. Their immune system is put under a huge pressure.

You know better than I do, that where leprosy is still present, antimicrobial resistance has been developed. Leprosy evolves slowly and patients progressively lose their independence and dignity. The Nuba population has no sanatoriums or asylums for leprosy. Patients live together with healthy people, often taking care of orphan children as long as they can.

The Nuba and the Blue Nile populations are not reached by international organizations and international aid, they have no medicines, nobody knows how many patients are infected, and nobody knows the rate of resistance to the antibiotics. All, that to our world is so important and normal, is inaccessible to them. 

From February this year, we were trying to help these victims of the war in Sudan. Through our public health institute and with the help of the ministry of health we have asked for the assistance of the World Health Organization (WHO). On the occasion of the World Health Assembly the former Minister of Health met with the WHO Director-General Dr Tedros in Geneva and informed him on the situation and called for action. On the 1st of October, a WHO representative was expected to come to the meeting in Ljubljana to agree upon how the WHO will use 20.000 EUROs of Slovenia`s contribution to prevent the spread of leprosy in the Nuba Mountains and blue nile. Until now, two months later, the meeting has not yet been scheduled.  No comment is needed.

skeptiki

 Yet, so much could be done and very quickly arranged.  Some of us are ready to leave the comfort and security of our homes and go to the unsafe and most endangered areas. Local people know and accept us. In the vicinity, outside the most dangerous area, but yet close enough, exists a German field hospital that could help us . The World Health Organization could, therefore, use this small amount of money and with its experts provide training for  local people and assure medicines from their stocks. I see the indigenous in Sahel rotting in front of my eyes.

And I see how our values and conscience is rotting at the same time. We have antibiotics that can prevent and treat this disease and improve the situation in a short period of a year. However, we delay the action for to me unacceptable reasons. We consciously let those “others and different" rotting and with no support, arguing that it is politically complicated and dangerous.

I call upon you, public health professionals, to counteract the predatory foreign policies and the perverse and sick neglect of the developed World of this health threatening situation.

In two weeks, we will try to return to Nuba Mountains; to this altar of sacrifice of the World. We will document everything we will find there a year after our last visit. That is what we can do.

We would love to bring with us appropriate antibiotics against leprosy; we would love to arrive to Nuba with the instructions on how to address the leprosy; with hope and the message that the world has not abandoned them. Your conference is an opportunity to talk about this health catastrophe. It is also an opportunity to strengthen ties among us, public health professionals, philanthropists and civil society. Together we could succeed. The world is one and we are all its citizens. We have to work together to overcome this unjustified situation and assure that no one is left behind, not even Nuba and the people of the Blue Nile.

If it is in your competences, please, help us with antibiotics and the knowledge. At the exit, copies of calendars of the Institutions Tomo Križnar and H.O.P.E. from 2019 are available.  You are invited to take your free copy.

April 2018. Nuba Mountains, Sudan

My wife Bojana and I have made a short film about leprosy in Nuba Mountains and started a campaign to grab an attention of World Health Organization.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzbfHC37e7Q&feature=youtu.be

************************************************************************************************************************
During the last visit in Sudan, my wife Bojana and I have unexpectedly discovered a location of leprosy (Hansen's disease), which has not been detected before on this area.
Although the leprosy is fully curable since 1940 and the antibiotic treatments and even more effective medications are available today, provided free of charge by the World Health Organization, the WHO representatives are not present on this area, so the disease spread among people ...

8. december 2017: NEW 2018 CALENDAR!

Calendar preview (PDF file)

Koledar 2018 prva stran.jpg

Happy Noam Chomsky day!

Our natural kind on Earth exterminates not only endemic kinds of plants and animals, but also its own and most special representatives. As in rain forests along the Amazon, in the
Kongo and everywhere in Asia, where we may be losing the cure for cancer by cutting down and burning trees, we may be losing the cure for environmental, social and other spiritual ailments
of the "civilized" part of the world, by exterminating the most indigenous peoples on Earth.

We may be exterminating our last and only salvation!

We present again the forgotten, sacrificed, beseiged and displaced indigenous people facing extermination in Sudan. And the seceded Republic of South Sudan.

Because of the new war between the president of the Republic of South Sudan and Dinka leader Salva Kiir, and vice-president and Nuer leader Riek Machar, which erupted in June and now prevents movement accross the whole new state and access to the northern frontier, and also because of EU policy - transferring 165 million EUR to Omar Bashir in the summer, to control the borders and the trade in refugees, and to block refugee routes accross the Sahara and the Mediterranean Sea to Europe, money that now finances the janjaweed and other mercenaries - access to the Nuba mountains, Blue Nile and Darfur is now made even harder. Maybe even impossible.

Maybe the best solution, at least in the short run, for these half million people would be to establish a trans-national natural and cultural park. This temporary solution, advocated by the Tomo Križnar Foundation and the humanitarian organization H.O.P.E, would also involve the use of surveillance drones / unmanned aircraft to watch over and protect these most innocent indigenous people from heartless poachers, the way animals are being protected in the wild in parts of Africa.

Please join us and help us with your contribution to finish editing the documentary »Drones above the Roots of Humanity«, with which the victims on this sacrificial altar of the planet may still invoke the attention of sensitive fellow humans.

The movie was made in collaboration with human rights defender Tomo Križnar, journalists Erik Valenčič and Ervin Hladnik Milharčič. It critically shows the events which are daily happening around the world, but are still too often overseen.
The film interweaves with a speech of three very good journalists, each of them carrying different experiences and perspectives on events happening around the world. They are the ones spending their time away from home and risking lives in order to inform people about the reality. It often happens that the truth does not reach the people, because of conflicting interests of corporations, states and influential individuals!
We are told stories from around the world, revealing a different, more real and tragic picture than the one presented trough the various media channels.
What is the hidden truth?
Why do the media feed us misguided information?
Who is behind all this?
What are their interests?
How far will all this take us?

Close your eyes and open your hearts!

NEW 2015 CALENDAR: “EXTERMINATE ALL THE BRUTES!”


Most of the photographs were taken by me and my wife Bojana during our last expedition to DR Congo and Sudan in the summer of 2014 (three were taken for campaigns to help indigenous peoples 1979 - 2014). The portraits compare “brutes” in two totally different natural environments: the African rainforest and the southern edge of the Sahara, the largest desert on Earth. We borrowed the title “Exterminate all the brutes” from Sven Lindqvist’s book because we, the “civilised” descendants of the first urban settlers, have been repeating it for centuries behind our defensive fortifications. We used this call to make modern “janissaries” realise that our turn will come too, even though we are living in a seemingly safe part of the world.
Knights that once protected the innocent are becoming fewer and fewer and so are humanitarian heroes, therefore we are using machines to help us out. We are becoming robots ourselves and this process may be irreversible but perhaps robots could help protect the roots and seeds of humanity - drones, flying cameras, the “flying eyes and ears of God”, as the indigenous people call them.
All proceeds from the calendar will be used to take the final shots with drones in the Nuba Mountains and the Blue Nile, where me and Bojana will be travelling to in the beginning of December. The money will also be used for financing the final cut and post-production, which will be done in Slovenia in March and April of 2015.

Tomo about Nelson Mandela:

Nelson is indeed more than a run-of-the-mill politician, and he did prove that experience of the worst evil can really help in becoming a better person. He did, however, fail when we were attempting to rescue Nigerian poet Saro-Wiwa from being hanged by the generals for protecting the indigenous Ogoni people in the Niger delta from the Shell oil corporation. And he never helped the Nuba and the people of Sudan. Archbishop Desmund Tutu dares to stand up openly in support of the people in Darfur, Abyei and Blue Nile provinces, and the natives in the Nuba mountains. And he is doing this by openly accusing the British and the European Union of cooperating, along with the Americans, with the Arabs in Sudan, with the Arab League, China and Russia in the ethnic cleansing of indigenous people in what is left of the old Sudan after the secession of the Republic of South Sudan two years ago.

Calendar of Tomo Križnar Foundation and H.O.P.E. for 2014

Our new calendar brings you experiences of childhood by schoolchildren in the Nuba mountains.
We put their simple yet compelling drawings as exclamation marks with each month - along with
photos of the native people, which we took under Russian Antonov bombers and Chinese MIGs.

In spite of the worst humanitarian crisis, the indigenous people continue to express, from one month to the next, an infinite hope and trust that we will help them to survive on their own land.
We believe that we can help the most by making a documentary movie that we have been producing on the ground in Sudan since the beginning of the year. Please support our new documentary by purchasing the calendar. Give it as a gift to friends, notify acquantainces,
spread the word ...

Urgent report on Blue Nile IDPs crossing the border into the refugees camps in South Sudan
Date: 11.Nov.2013

27. February 2013 - New aerial attack on Buram, 26. Feb 2013 (click for further description with photos)

Bombardments on civilians became usual event. It is happening day after day. Today again in Buram, a small market town in Nuba Mountains, where we we used to sit in wonderful cool shade under mango tree, drinking coffee or tea and chat.
Antonov arrived at 9.15 in the morning and bombed the center of the market - straight without circling. It killed three men and wounded another four. Two man died roasted on the spot, and the third one on the way to small clinic. All are civilians.There are no military camps around. The same Antonov bombed today also Kowalib and Degheba. At the moment we do not have report on victims.
It is happening again and again because most of the world is looking away.
Thank you for your attention.
