Belgrade remembers Srebrenica - 11 years on...

19-07-2006 15:20

The Srebrenica massacre was the July 1995 killing of up to an estimated 8,106 Bosniak males, ranging in age from teenagers to the elderly, in the region of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina by a Serb Army of Republika Srpska under general Ratko Mladić including Serbian state special forces "Scorpions". The Srebrenica massacre is the largest mass murder in Europe since World War II and considered by many as one of the most horrific events in recent European history. It is also the first legally established case of genocide in Europe after the Holocaust. (source: Wikipedia).

11 years on, a large crowd gathered in the city centre of Belgrade to remember the victims killed in the Srebrenica massacre. Last year the same vigil was attacked by nationalist groups, some of who trew teargas in the crowd. The police guarded the protest heavily this time. We took some photos...

A Hyde Park Democracy - from London to Palestine

18-07-2006 12:43

The emergency conference called by ‘Stop the War’ on the crisis in Palestine drew a packed house. After a promising start we were left with the same options, a candle lit vigil and a state sanctioned march. With Gaza being bombed day and night surely it is time to step out of our comfort zone and reflect the courage of Palestinians.

Jean Charles - Another nail in the coffin of democracy.

17-07-2006 21:45

Patricia Armani de Silva
The CPS decision not prosecute the murderers of Jean Charles de Menezes did not really surprise anyone. After the shocking murder and the blatant lies that were leaked about it afterwards the family had little but contempt for the legal process.

So as it stands right now there will be no opportunity to question in court:
1) The officer who falsely identified Jean Charles as would be suicide bomber Hussain Osman.
2) The officers who followed Jean and did not question their orders even though he displayed NO characteristics of a bomber and was not carrying a bag as the failed bombers had done. They also delayed the train for the firearms squad and indicated Jean to them.
3) The officer who grabbed Jean around his body and held him to be shot. Did he not realise that there was no bomb strapped to him as he clearly would have felt it?
4) The two officers who pulled the triggers that left Jean with seven bullets in his head and one in his shoulder (3 missed).
5) The senior officer who authorised ‘Shoot to kill’.

While we are on the subject, an enquiry into how the British public came to be bombarded with a total blitz of lies about the murder would be nice.

At today’s press conference Jean’s cousins vowed to fight on. They have coped with this tragedy and being thrust into the media spotlight with incredible dignity and determination. Meanwhile the killers of Jean remain on holiday, on full pay, their anonymity protected.

There will however be a prosecution of the MET over this under Health and Safety legislation!!? Exactly how you can fail to consider someone’s Health and Safety when you have been ordered to kill them remains to be seen……..

Repeal the Hitlerian Civil Contingencies Act

17-07-2006 06:51

The Civil Contingencies Act, passed in November 2004, places the anti-democratic New Labour Government in the same position Hitler's Enabling Act placed the Nazi German Government. It permits the calling of a state of Emergency and the total abolition of democracy and individual rights --- i.e. Dictatorship Acts. Few people know anything about the contents of the CCA. (Few MPs to this day seem to know much about it.) We better learn quick, I say.
