'Universal Jurisdiction': Spain's Judges Target Torture

Spain's Judges Cross Borders in Rights Cases

Craig Whitlock, The Washington Post: "Spanish judges are boldly declaring their authority to prosecute high-ranking government officials in the United States, China and Israel, among other places, delighting human rights activists but enraging officials in the countries they target and triggering a political backlash in a nation uncomfortable acting as the world's conscience."

Jenseits der Menschenrechte – Die europäische Flüchtlings- und Migrationspolitik

„Wer trägt die Verantwortung für die über 200 afrikanischen Migranten, die allein Anfang April diesen Jahres auf dem Weg nach dem „Europa der Menschenrechte“ vor der libyschen Küste ertranken? Für die glücklich Geretteten, die nun in europäisch mitfinanzierten libyschen Lagern auf ungewisse Zeit ihrer Deportation harren? Die europäische Migrationspolitik zielt wesentlich darauf ab, die wirtschaftlich erwünschte von der unerwünschten zu scheiden. Das führt im Innern der EU zur menschenrechtswidrigen Ausgrenzung der Flüchtlinge in Lager und an den Außengrenzen zur todbringenden Abschottung. Die Autorinnen und Autoren nehmen u.a. Akteure von Migrationspolitik und -kontrolle in den Blick, zeichnen Linien des Widerständigen und der Solidarisierung mit Migrationsbewegungen nach und reflektieren Aspekte wie Kulturrassismus oder „Ausländerfeindlichkeit““ So die Informationen des Komitee für Grundrechte und Demokratie zum Jahrbuch 2009 (Verlag Westfälisches Dampfboot, Münster 2009, 280 S., € 19,90 ISBN 978-3-89691-760-7).

Migrationen im Sozialen Weltkrieg

„Über die Straße von Gibraltar hinweg reicht der Blick bis ans andere Ufer. Afrika, Europa. Übersetzen müsste so leicht sein. Aber dieser Meeresgrund birgt das größte Massengrab der europäischen Nachkriegsgeschichte. An die Bilder der erschöpften Boat People haben wir uns fast schon gewöhnt. Die Bilder der Ertrunkenen rufen nur noch ein mattes Entsetzen hervor. Sicher in Europa, wird der kurze Aufschrei des Gewissens nur zu rasch von der Alltagsroutine eingeholt. Man lebt hier trotz allem nicht schlecht, in einer Gesellschaft, deren Grundlagen von einer Millionenzahl verschleppter Schwarzer und von Hunderttausenden asiatischer Kulis in Sklaverei und unter Zwang produziert wurden. Ob nun die Schwarzen ertrinken, verhungern oder ob sie sich gegenseitig umbringen – es erscheint dies als marginales, ohnehin kaum beeinflussbares Phänomen…“ Artikel von Eberhard Jungfer aus dem Jahrbuch 2009 (S. 16-27)(pdf) – exklusiv im LabourNet Germany http://www.labournet.de/diskussion/grundrechte/asyl/jahrbuch09.pdf

Secretive Rich Cabal Met To Discuss Population Control

Reports spin elitist confab as benign philanthropic plan, yet population reduction agenda is firmly rooted in eugenics and social Darwinism

Our speculation that the “secret billionaire club” meeting at the beginning of the month was primarily focused around population control. a cause célèbre embraced by David Rockefeller, Ted Turner and Bill Gates, has been confirmed by a London Times report.

Europe's Uprising Against GMOs and Patents on Life

ISIS Report 25/05/09

The unstoppable groundswell of opposition to GMOs in Europe

Dr. Mae-Wan Ho

The recent call for a moratorium on GMOs in Europe [1] (see Europe Holds the Key to a GM-Free World, 5th Conference of GM-Free Regions, Food & Democracy, SiS 43) reflects an unstoppable groundswell of opposition to GMOs from both European citizens and governments.

An online poll [2] on the question: “Should GMOs be banned in Europe?” conducted in April 2009 returned a 79 percent yes, 18 percent no and 3 percent don’t know. Days earlier, Germany outlawed the cultivation of Monsanto’s GM maize MON810, a surprising move that delighted campaigners. Germany became the sixth EU country to introduce a provisional ban on the GM maize, after France, Austria, Hungary, Luxembourg and Greece [3]. A source close to the EC said the German ban might bring a revision of the European legislation on GM crops. Germany also voted with the majority in March when the European Commission (EC) attempted to force Austria and Hungary to reverse their bans, and its ruling was overturned by a big majority [1].

Ban by Germany the tipping point

Germany’s move was broadly welcomed by its news media [4]. German Agriculture Minister Ilse Aigner said she had legitimate reasons to believe that MON 810, posed “a danger to the environment,” a position which she said the Environment Ministry also supported. Aigner is taking advantage of a clause in EU law which allows individual countries to impose such bans. The left-wing Frankfurter Rundschau wrote: “Genetically modified corn is a risk to our environment, is totally superfluous in farming, represents industrial agriculture, causes pointless costs to food production in Germany and can even ruin beekeepers.” The left-wing Berliner Zeitung wroes: “The new studies don't show any new risks - they simply prove that the old warning about the risks was justified. It's a scandal that the subsequent ban was even necessary because the farming of genetically modified plants had been permitted without a thorough examination of all the possible dangers.”

Germany, the most populous country in the European Union
(EU) ranking fourth in land area, is also its most influential and economically powerful member nation. Monsanto applied for an emergency ruling to overturn the ban to allow for its 2009 planting [5], saying its ban is arbitrary and goes against EU regulations.

But the court in Braunschweig in north Germany rejected Monsanto’s application [6]. Significantly, a statement from the court said Germany’s law on GMOs does not require that a ban on a new plant variety is justified by proven scientific research which showed without doubt the crop to be dangerous; it was sufficient when research showed there were indications that the crop could be dangerous.

Blood, sweat and development

Adam Smith Institute
by Andrew Hutson

05/21/09

The latest high-profile BBC show, ‘Blood, Sweat and Takeaways,’ is a series of documentaries looking at how consumerism in the west is leading to poverty and exploitation within the Asian food industries, the first episode focussed on the Indonesian tuna industry. As can be expected with the BBC this show only presents half the debate. It puts across a very tainted view of the situation; it implies that we are demanding cheaper and cheaper food in greater quantities than before. In order for this food to be produced, workers in foreign countries need to be exploited. It hints at a neo-colonialist world where Asian producers are at the beck and call of our demands at whatever human cost. The evidence in the show is worrying, but the arguments are not conclusive...

Admiral: Anti-drug effort in Afghanistan a failure

Agence France-Presse

05/21/09

NATO has failed to stem the vast opium trade in Afghanistan that helps finance Taliban insurgents despite an eight-year effort, the top US military officer said on Thursday. Countering narcotics networks is crucial to weakening the Taliban and allied insurgent groups, Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Senate hearing. ‘Strategically my view is it has to be eliminated,’ Mullen said. ‘We have had almost no success in the last seven or eight years doing that, including this year’s efforts,’ he said. Afghanistan produces 90 percent of the world’s opium, the raw material for heroin across Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East while cash from the trade helps insurgents buy weapons, according to officials...

US Holds Journalist Without Charges in Iraq

Liz Sly, The Los Angeles Times: "'Where is the journalist Ibrahim?' one of the Iraqi soldiers barked at the grandparents, children and grandchildren as they staggered blearily down the stairs. Ibrahim Jassam, a cameraman and photographer for the Reuters news agency, stepped forward, one of this brothers recalled. 'Take me if you want me, but please leave my brothers.' The soldiers rifled through the house, confiscating his computer hard drive and cameras. And then they led him away, handcuffed and blindfolded. That was September 2nd. Jassam, 31, has been in US custody ever since."

Fixing America, Erasing Bush

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: President Obama gave a speech on Thursday praising the excellence of the American experiment, and claimed his own life was made possible by the promise of the documents and the ideals that founded this nation. As usual, his delivery and diction was perfect. Unfortunately, his behavior of late has fallen far short of the ideals he has given such eloquent lip service to. Two thousand pictures of Americans performing acts of savage torture on prisoners will not be released to the general public if Mr. Obama gets his way. Military commissions will continue to try prisoners outside the scope of American law, and will be free to use brazen hearsay as "hard" evidence against defendants. Mr. Obama continues to cleave to the most abhorrent aspects of Bush-era secrecy policies."
