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

British government wants to fool the world and show indirect, that Ecuador is right, to give asylum to him, because the governments of the Western world want out of political reasons to bring him in prison!: UK tells Ecuador Assange can’t be extradited if he faces death penalty – William Hague says Wikileaks founder could only be sent to US if both Britain and Sweden believe human rights would not be breached. The UK-government confirms so indirect, that they want to bring Julian Assange to court in US and that Ecuador was right, to give him Asylums: Foreign-minster Hague, does not say, that Britain and Sweden will only bring him to Sweden to interview him because the claimend sexual abuses. He says, as the Swedish government before, he does not exclude to deport him to US. According to his statement this would be possible, they just make an agreement, that Assange gets a fair trial and will not be sentenced to death. But even then if he would be imprisoned because may be of a fabricated accusation of “supporting the enemy”, in publishing government secrets, they would have achieved, what they want, to show the world, that the people have no right, to know what our governments really do and plan! And the journalists have no right to publish what they get to know. We all should in our democratic interest support Assange and Ecuador and condem the fooling of the British government!

In an interview with the pan-Latin American broadcaster Telesur, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says it might take six to 12 months to resolve the issue of his extradition to Sweden. His comments follow an admission by the foreign secretary, William Hague, that “a solution is not in sight” to the row, which has strained diplomatic relations with the South American country. Assange reveals that the whistle-blower website will soon release millions of emails related to the Syrian government.

Don’t lose sight of why the US is out to get Julian Assange: Ecuador is pressing for a deal that offers justice to Assange’s accusers – and essential protection for whistleblowers. The solution is obvious. It’s the one that Ecuador is proposing – and that London and Stockholm are resisting. If the Swedish government pledged to block the extradition of Assange to the US for any WikiLeaks-related offence (which it has the power to do) – and Britain agreed not to sanction extradition to a third country once Swedish proceedings are over – then justice could be served. But with loyalty to the US on the line, Assange shouldn’t expect to leave the embassy any time soon.

By our estimates, at least $21 to $32 trillion as of 2010 has been invested virtually tax-free through the worlds still expanding black hole of more than 80 offshore secrecy jurisdictions. Remember: this is just financial wealth. A big share of the real estate, yachts, racehorses, gold bricks and many other things that count as non financial wealth are also owned via offshore structures where it is impossible to identify the owners. Overall Size a significant fraction of global private financial wealth. We are up against one of societys most well entrenched interest groups. After all, theres no interest group more rich and powerful than the rich and powerful, who are the ultimate subjects of our research.
