World Court Rules Against Myanmar on Rohingya

International Court of Justice Unanimously Orders Measures to Prevent Genocide in Burma

By HRW - 23. January 2020

(Brussels) – The International Court of Justice (ICJ) order on January 23, 2020, directing Myanmar to prevent all genocidal acts against Rohingya Muslims is crucial for protecting the remaining Rohingya in Rakhine State, Human Rights Watch said today. The court unanimously adopted “provisional measures” that require Myanmar to prevent genocide and take steps to preserve evidence.

Myanmar’s military committed extensive atrocities against the Rohingya, including murder, rape, and arson, that peaked during its late 2017 campaign of ethnic cleansing, forcing more than 740,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh. In September 2019, the United Nations-backed International Independent Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar found that the 600,000 Rohingya remaining in Myanmar “may face a greater threat of genocide than ever.” 

U.S. Lawmakers seek to curb illegal deforestation and to lower emissions

a tree on a dirt track: BRAZIL-ENVIRONMENT-DEFORESTATION

BRAZIL - ENVIRONMENT - DEFORESTATION

By Cara Korte - 03. March 2021

The USA relies heavily on imported agriculture commodities. Nearly half of all the processed items Americans buy in grocery stores contain palm oil from around the world. America is the leading importer of raw rubber and tires, made from rubber trees harvested in southwest Asia. The U.S. is also the leading importer of cocoa, often from Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire. These products all come from tropical forests.

However, these goods come at a steep cost to the environment. The harvesting of palm-driven land in Indonesia and Malaysia alone contributes roughly 1.4% of global net carbon dioxide emissions each year, and many of these imported commodities are sourced from illegally deforested land. Democratic Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii is planning to introduce a bill to change that. 

"I don't think the average consumer knows that half the stuff they buy at the supermarket contains palm oil, and most of that palm oil is from illegally deforested land," Schatz told CBS News.

In Brazil, for example, the vast majority of deforestation is illegal. America is a leading buyer of processed hides (leather) from the country. One commodities expert called the Brazilian rainforest a "free for all" where no one is stopping miners, loggers and ranchers from destroying legally protected, often Indigenous, land.

Prologue: Apart from the obvious genocide, war-crimes and crimes against humanity launched against the Palestinians by those responsible in the governance of the Israeli regime, the ICC also must prepare and bring charges against Israel for the Ecocide caused in Palestine as well as in those areas initially given to the newly created state of Israel. The serious environmental crime by systematic destruction and devastation in the terrestrial as well as marine ecosystems of the region caused by Israel is unbelievable and unbearable. Irrigated agricultural land and greenhouses in Israel must not blindfold the investgators from establishing the loss in biodiversity and natural habitat, even if the ICC is said by some to hold at the moment no jurisdiction over Israel per se. However, the ICC itself confirmed it has jurisdiction.

"Deeply troubled" traditional owners in the western Pilbara have had their worst fears confirmed after Rio Tinto detonated explosives near culturally significant sites dating back more than 46,000 years.

Key points:

  • Rio Tinto has confirmed the gorge's ancient rock shelters were destroyed in blasting over the weekend
  • Permission was signed off in 2013 and was known to "impact Juukan 1 and Juukan 2 rock shelters"
  • In 2014, an archaeologist found several "staggering" artefacts believed to be the earliest use of grindstone technology in WA

A Rio Tinto spokesperson said blasting in Juukan Gorge occurred over the weekend, and on Tuesday the company confirmed its ancient rock shelters were destroyed.

World Wildlife Day, 3 March 2021: Forests and Livelihoods

By UNESCO -  03 March 2021

Today is World Wildlife Day with the theme: "Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet," as a way to highlight the central role of forests, forest species and ecosystems services in sustaining the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people globally, and particularly of Indigenous and local communities with historic ties to forest and forest-adjacent areas. This aligns with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 1, 12, 13 and 15, and their wide-ranging commitments on alleviating poverty, ensuring sustainable use of resources, and on conserving life on land.

The UNESCO World Heritage List includes many forest areas in all different climate zones (boreal forests, temperate forests, subtropical forests and wood lands, tropical forests, mangrove forests). Ranging in size from 18 hectares (Vallée de Mai, Seychelles), to 5.8 million hectares (Central Amazon Conservation Complex, Brazil), World Heritage forest sites have a total surface area of more than 75 million hectares, and represent over 13 per cent of all IUCN category I-IV protected forests worldwide.

By  - 03. March 2021

Emmanuel Macron has admitted French soldiers tortured and killed a well-known Algerian lawyer and activist during the country’s independence war.

Ali Boumendjel, 37, died after falling from a sixth-floor window in 1957 during the Battle of Algiers. Until now, his death has been recorded as suicide.

“At the heart of the Battle of Algiers, he was arrested by the French army, hidden, tortured then assassinated on 23 March 1957,” the Elysée said in a statement.

In 2000, Paul Aussaresses, the former head of French intelligence in the Algerian capital, Algiers, confessed to ordering Boumendjel’s murder.

“Paul Aussaresses admitted himself that he had ordered one of his subordinates to kill him and disguise the crime as suicide,” continued the statement.

“Ali Boumendjel did not kill himself. He was tortured and then killed.”

Explosive Report Alleges Extensive Use Of Forced Labor At Apple Suppliers In China

As Apple continues to lobby against the Uygher Forced Labor Prevention Act, a bill intended to punish Chinese companies that utilize forced labor from the persecuted Muslim minority group, the Washington Post has just rolled out a lengthy investigation, conducted in partnership with a human-rights group, exposing Apple suppliers' links to forced labor.

Breaking news that threatens to revive the outrage over the fraught ethical status of Apple's supply chain. 10 years ago, when stories about Foxconn's labor abuses first emerged, coverage seemed to focus on macabre stories of long shifts, low pay and suicide nets strung up around manufacturing facilities to stop workers from leaping to their deaths.

Global Initiative for COVID-19 Vaccine Records

digital COVID-19 vaccination recordsAnalysis by Whitney Webb - 26. January 2021

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Tech giants with deep ties to the U.S. national security state — Microsoft, Oracle and the MITRE Corporation — have partnered with health care companies to create the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI) to advance the implementation of digital COVID-19 vaccination records
  • The initiative is essentially built on a common framework of digital vaccination “wallets” called SMART Health Cards that are meant to “work across organizational and jurisdictional boundaries” as part of a new global vaccination-record infrastructure
  • SMART Health Cards are expected to include a person’s complete name, gender, birth date, mobile phone number and email address in addition to vaccination information, though it is possible and likely that more personal information will be required as the initiative advances
  • While the push for combining digital identity with vaccination records and economic activity appears, superficially, to be the effort of various organizations and groups, the same individuals and entities appear time and again, pointing to a coordinated push to not only implement such a system but manufacture consent for such a system among the global population
  • Coercion is a built-in part of this infrastructure and, if implemented, will be used to modify human behavior to great effect, reaching far beyond just the issue of COVID-19 vaccines

Saudi Savagery: Kingdom Beheads 16-Year-Old For Sending Whatsapp Message

Psychopath with a deadly smile: Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, known colloquially as MbS, must be stopped on all of his fronts, shunned internatioally and be brought to justice. The cruelties committed by the House of Saud and their rule must end.

The controversy over Saudi Crown Prince MbS's alleged orchestration of the murder of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi has largely subsided since the government insider-turned-critic walked into the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul in early October and never walked out. But a new controversy is brewing over one of the kingdom's most controversial practices: Its mass-beheadings of men convicted of 'terrorism' charges, typically members of the Shiite minority living in the eastern part of the kingdom.

Saudi Arabia has long practiced execution by beheading. But this year, the mass extermination of 37 of mostly Shiite men this week provoked condemnation from the UN and other human rights organizations, as several teenage boys were executed for crimes as seemingly petty a sending Whatsapp messages about government demonstrations.

One particularly disturbing case was recounted in the UK's The Sun tabloid. Abdulkareem al-Hawaj was just just 16 when he was arrested. Just a schoolboy at the time, he was detained and accused of being a "terrorist" for sending texts online about an anti-government demonstration.

By ZambianObserver - December 3, 2017

A 79-year-old retired officer of the CIA, Bill Oxley, has made a series of stunning confessions since he was admitted to the Mercy Hospital in Maine on Monday and told he has weeks to live. He claims he committed 17 assassinations for the American government between 1974 and 1985, including the music icon Bob Marley.

Mr. Oxley, who worked for the CIA for 29 years as an operative with top-level security clearances, claims he was often used as a hitman by the organization, to assassinate individuals who could represent a threat to the goals of the agency.Trained as a sniper and marksman, Mr. Oxley also has significant experience with more unconventional methods of inflicting harm upon others, like poisons, explosives, induced heart attacks and cancer.

GERMANY EXPELS ROMA EN MASSE TO SERBIA AND MONTENEGRO

See the source imageBy ERRC29 October 2003

In recent months there have been a number of reports that some countries of Western Europe, including Germany, have been expelling large numbers of Roma to Serbia and Montenegro. In the case of Germany, many Roma arrived in the country as a result of armed conflict in the former Yugoslavia region beginning in 1991, and have sought asylum, but many arrived prior to the conflict. Since the early 1990s, Roma from the former Yugoslavia - like other former Yugoslavs in Germany - have been regulated under a status called "tolerated" (geduldet), which, in practice, only protected the Romani refugees from deportation. The permit of toleration (duldung) has often been issued for periods sometimes as short as several weeks. The majority of the Roma in question have thus lived in Germany under this insecure status for up to ten years. In the meanwhile, they formed legitimate ties to the country in many ways, their young children being born and educated in Germany, and many of these Roma now rightly consider themselves German.

By AP - 29. June 2020

The Chinese government is taking draconian measures to slash birth rates among Uighurs and other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population, even as it encourages some of the country’s Han majority to have more children.

While individual women have spoken out before about forced birth control, the practice is far more widespread and systematic than previously known, according to an AP investigation based on government statistics, state documents and interviews with 30 ex-detainees, family members and a former detention camp instructor. The campaign over the past four years in the far west region of Xinjiang is leading to what some experts are calling a form of “demographic genocide.”

The state regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, and forces intrauterine devices, sterilization and even abortion on hundreds of thousands, the interviews and data show. Even while the use of IUDs and sterilization has fallen nationwide, it is rising sharply in Xinjiang.

The population control measures are backed by mass detention both as a threat and as a punishment for failure to comply. Having too many children is a major reason people are sent to detention camps, the AP found, with the parents of three or more ripped away from their families unless they can pay huge fines. Police raid homes, terrifying parents as they search for hidden children.
