CAR rebel head Michel Djotodia 'suspends constitution'

The leader of rebels seized the capital of the Central African Republic and disscolved parliament

Michel Djotodia said there would be a transition period until "credible and transparent" elections, during which he would "legislate by decree". Following the takeover, the African Union has suspended CAR and imposed sanctions on rebel leaders. CAR has been unstable since its independence from France and is one of the least-developed countries in the world.

Gariwo, the gardens of the Righteous

a non-profit organization in the service of memory

Gariwo's aim is to heighten awareness and interest in the figures and the tales of the Righteous, women and men who fought and are still fighting in defense of human dignity. 
It has been active since 1999 but it was officially set up in 2001 as Gardens of the Righteous Worldwide Committee-Gariwo and in 2009 it became a non-profit organization. It is chaired by Gabriele Nissim.

In 2003 was born the Garden of the Righteous worldwide at Monte Stella Hill in Milan, which since 2008 is run by the Association for the Garden of the Righteous - formed by Gariwo, the Municipality of Milan and the Union of Italian Jewish Communities.

In 2012, after Gariwo's call, the European Parliament established the European Day of the Righteous - 6 March. In 2017 Italy has been the first country to recognize this recurrence as a civil feast, establishing the Day of the Righteous of the Humanity.
