The world rembers the young South African Steve Biko, who was killed because he fought for a non-racistic world: Qutes: “So as a prelude whites must be made to realise that they are only human, not superior. Same with Blacks. They must be made to realise that they are also human, not inferior. The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.”

Suppressing Protest in America: Human Rights Violations in Response to OCCUPY: In September 2011, waves of protests against mounting socioeconomic injustice broke out across the United States, capturing the attention of the country. The Occupy Wall Street movement, inspired by similar protests around the globe, used the occupation of public space and mass demonstrations to call attention to a wide array of shared concerns. But across the United States, abusive and unlawful protest regulation and policing practices have been and continue to be alarmingly evident. This report follows a review of thousands of news reports and hundreds of hours of video, extensive firsthand observation, and detailed witness interviews. In New York City, some of the worst practices documented include: read the report, its to download. These practices violate assembly and expression rights and breach the U.S. government’s international legal obligations to respect those rights. In New York City, protest policing concerns are extensive and exist against a backdrop of disproportionate and well-documented abusive policing practices in poor and minority communities outside of the protest context.

The sole purpose of this posting by me is to draw attention to what must be the most comprehensive, well researched report on the policing of OCCUPY yet to date. The amount of information and references listed is staggering and … Continue reading

GambiaPresident Jammeh’s threat to kill all of the country’s remaining 38 death row inmates isolates tiny west African nation. Nine prisoners – including one woman and two citizens of neighbouringSenegal – were executed in late August without warning, prompting international outrage and a diplomatic crisis with the Senegalese government. “These prisoners were arrested with no evidence, tortured for months, convicted in sham trials and are now living in fear of their lives,” he said, asking to remain anonymous for fear that speaking out would lead to his relative being singled out. “Any confidence I had left that the government could not execute innocent people has now been shattered.

African Archbishop Desmond TutuTony: Bush and Blair should face trial over Iraq war! Nobel peace prizewinner and hero of the anti-apartheid movement has called for Tony Blair and George Bush to be hauled before the international criminal court in The Hague and delivered a damning critique of the physical and moral devastation caused by the Iraqwar. Tutu accuses the former British and US leaders of lying about weapons of mass destruction and says the invasion left the world more destabilised and divided “than any other conflict in history”. “The then leaders of the United States and Great Britain,” Tutu argues, “fabricated the grounds to behave like playground bullies and drive us further apart. They have driven us to the edge of a precipice where we now stand – with the spectre of Syria and Iran before us.” Comment: Very important initiative, we should all support it, in the churches, trade unions, political parties, from Occupy to ask our governments around the world, to bring them to court! In the face of the threats of Israel ministerpresident Netanyahu and his defense minster Barak, to attack Iran in an illegal war, the world should show, that the world will not accept this anymore and will people who order such criminal wars, will be taken to court!

US-Politician and political adviser, Henry Kissinger: “depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World.” He quoted reasons of national security, and because `(t)he U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less-developed countries … Wherever a lessening of population can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resources, supplies and to the economic interests of U.S.

Global food prices soared by 10 percent in July from a month ago, with maize and soybean reaching all-time peaks due to an unprecedented summer of droughts and high temperatures in both the United States and Eastern Europe, according to the World Bank Group’s latest Food Price Watch report. From June to July, maize and wheat rose by 25 percent each, soybeans by 17 percent, and only rice went down, by 4 percent. Overall, the World Bank’s Food Price Index, which tracks the price of internationally traded food commodities, was 6 percent higher than in July of last year, and 1 percent over the previous peak of February 2011. Droughts have severe economic, poverty and nutritional effects. In Malawi, for instance, it is projected that future severe droughts observed once in 25 years could increase poverty by 17 percent, hitting especially hard rural poor communities. And in India, dismal losses from droughts occurred between 1970 and 2002 to have reduced 60-80 percent of households’ normal yearly incomes in the affected communities. “We cannot allow these historic price hikes to turn into a lifetime of perils as families take their children out of school and eat less nutritious food to compensate for the high prices,”said Kim. “Countries must strengthen their targeted programs to ease the pressure on the most vulnerable population, and implement the right policies.”
