2nd November (2021): International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists

The International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists (IDEI) is a UN-recognized international day observed annually on 2 November.

The day draws attention to the level of impunity for crimes against journalists, which remains extremely high globally. Between 2006 and 2020, over 1,200 journalists have been killed around the world, with close to 9 out of 10 cases of these killings remaining judicially unresolved, according to the UNESCO observatory of killed journalists. As journalists play a critical role in reporting facts to all citizens, impunity for attacks against them has a particularly damaging impact, limiting public awareness and constructive debate.

On 2 November, organizations and individuals worldwide are encouraged to talk about the unresolved cases in their countries, and write to government and intra-governmental officials to demand action and justice. UNESCO organizes an awareness-raising campaign on the findings of the UNESCO Director-General’s biennial Report on the Safety of Journalists and the Danger of Impunity, which catalogues the responses of states to UNESCO’s formal request for updates on progress in cases of killings of journalists and media workers. UNESCO and civil society groups throughout the world also use 2 November as a launch date for other reports, events and other advocacy initiatives relating to the problem of impunity for crimes against freedom of expression.

2nd November (2021): All Souls’ Day

All Souls’ Day, also known as the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed and the Day of the Dead, is a day of prayer and remembrance for the faithfully departed, which is observed by Roman Catholics and other Christian denominations annually on November 2. All Souls’ Day is often celebrated in Western Christianity; Saturday of Souls is a related tradition more frequently observed in Eastern Christianity. Practitioners of All Souls’ Day traditions often remember deceased loved ones in various ways on the day. Through prayer, intercessions, alms and visits to cemeteries, people commemorate the poor souls in purgatory and gain them indulgences. Beliefs and practices associated with All Souls’ Day vary widely among Christian denominations.

The annual celebration is the last day of Allhallowtide, after All Saints’ Day and its eve.[5] Prior to the standardization of Catholic observance on 2 November by St. Odlio of Cluny during the 10th century, many Catholic congregations celebrated All Souls Day on various dates during the Easter season as it is still observed in some Eastern Orthodox Churches and associated Eastern Catholic and Eastern Lutheran churches. Churches of the East Syriac Rite (Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, Chaldean Catholic Church, Assyrian Church of the East, Ancient Church of the East) commemorate all the faithful departed on the Friday before Lent.

♬ CAMILLA CABELLO – Don’t Go Yet

LYRIC

Oh, my love, oh, yeah, yeah
I’m in love, yeah

I replayed this moment for months
Alone in my head, waitin’ for it to come
I wrote all your lines in the scripts in my mind, and
I hope that you follow it for once

I imagine myself in satin, the room was platinum and gold
I’d dance and catch your eye, you’ll be mesmerized, oh
We’d find a corner, then your hands in my hair
Finally we’re here, so, why
Are you sayin’ you got a flight, need an early night?
No, don’t go yet

Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours?
Just a little more, don’t go yet

Baby, don’t go yet, ’cause I wore this dress for a lil’ drama
And I bet, I bet that you think that you know, but you don’t
Baby, come to mama
I get, I get what I want when I want
And I get it how I wanna, wanna
And I want you baby, gotta get you, baby

We’d find a corner, then your hands in my hair
Finally we’re here, so, why
Are you sayin’ you got a flight, need an early night?
No, don’t go yet

Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet (No, no)
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet
What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours?
Just a little more, don’t go yet

Dámelo
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (Don’t go yet)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, hey (Don’t go yet)
Hey!

(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet)
(No te vayas, quédate) Dale
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet) Ahora voy yo
(No te vayas, quédate)
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet) Stay a little longer
(No te vayas, quédate) Know you really wanna
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet) Stay a little longer
(No te vayas, quédate) Oh

Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet (Oh)
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet (Oh, don’t go yet)
Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet (Oh)
(Oh-no-no, don’t leave yet) What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours?
(No te vayas, quédate) Just a little more

(Oh, yeah, don’t go yet, don’t go yet) What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours? Yours, yours
What you leavin’ for, when my night is yours?
Just a little more, don’t go yet
