Our ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ in Iraq: 19 people killed

Some months ago, tens of thousands of Iraqis protested against our democracy. Surrounded by hundreds of police, soldiers and rooftop snipers, with military helicopters buzzing overhead, protesters waved Iraqi flags and signs reading “Bring the Light Back” (a reference to the lack of electricity), “No to Corruption!” and “I’m a Peaceful Man.” Security forces used tear gas, water cannons, sound bombs and live bullets to disperse the crowds. At least 19 people were killed. A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad said that Iraq’s security forces “generally have not used force against peaceful protesters.” http://www.uruknet.info/?p=m75338&hd&size=1&l=e&fb=1

The NATO bombing in Yugoslavia

democracy, NATO bombing , Yugoslavia

THE NATO IN YUGOSLAVIA (24.3.1999- 19.4.1999): 

From the onset of NATO aggression against our country up to 19 April 1999, the North Atlantic Alliance made over 7,000 criminal attacks against the territory of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. 700 warplanes, of which 530 combat planes, were used; more than 2000 cruise missiles were launched and over 6,000 tons of explosives were dropped. 
About 500 civilians were killed and more than 4,000 sustained serious injuries e.g.:
in Kursumlija: 13 dead and 25 wounded;
in Pancevo: 2 dead and 4 wounded;
in Cacak: one dead and 7 wounded;
in Kragujevac: over 120 workers were wounded during an attack on the car factory "Zastava";
in Vranje: two dead and 23 wounded;
in Aleksinac: 12 dead and more than 40 wounded;
in Nagavac village, Orahovac municipality: 11 dead and 5 wounded;
in Pristina: 10 dead and 8 wounded;
Grdelicka gorge: 55 killed and 16 wounded;
attack on two refugee columns, with four cruise missiles, on the Djakovica-Prizren
road: 75 killed and 100 wounded, of whom 26 critically;
in the village of Srbica: 10 killed, among whom 7 children;
Belgrade suburb of Batajnica: a three year old girl was killed, and five civilians wounded.

Three million children are endangered in our country as a result of war and bombardment by NATO. 
After these barbarian attacks hundreds of thousands citizens have been exposed to poisonous gasses which can have a lasting consequences on the health of the entire population and the environment. 
After the demolition of the Petrovaradin bridge, Novi Sad and Petrovaradin were cut of water supply (600 000 citizens) since the main and city pipeline was constructed into the bridge. About one million citizens in our country are short of water supply due to the bombardment of NATO.
About 500 000 workers became jobless due to the total destruction of industrial facilities all around the country. Two million citizens have no means for living and cannot ensure the minimum for existence. 
Overall material damage is enormous. Preliminary estimates indicate that barbaric air strikes of the NATO alliance, since the beginning of the unprovoked aggression on the SR of Yugoslavia, on industrial, commercial and civil facilities and structures, have incurred damages in excess of 10 billion dollars. In the territory of the northern province of Vojvodine alone, damages have been estimated in excess of 3,5 billion dollars.

ISRAELI APARTHEID: THE UNION OF PROGRESSIVE JEWS


Archives

The Union of Progressive Jews of Belgium (UPJB) calls for a rally of citizens on March 21 next (18 to 20 hours, Avenue Louise in Brussels, opposite the Conrad Hotel)

 

The next Sunday, March 21, the Conrad Hotel will host a gala dinner organized by the ‘Israel Bonds International Europe “with, as the guest of honor, the Israeli foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman.

The Union of Progressive Jews of Belgium would recall that the money invested by policyholders in Israeli government Bonds, is largely used to perpetuate the occupation and colonization of Palestinian territories, in flagrant violation of international law.

She also wishes to recall that Avigdor Lieberman, besides his ministerial duties, is the leader of Israel Beteinou (Israel Our Home), a political party openly racist and Arabophobia.

Avigdor Lieberman claims to be ‘democratic’, but his populist rhetoric and proposals regarding the fate of Arab citizens of Israel, is far from the universal conception of democracy. He declared in September 2006 (interview with the newspaper HaZofeh): “I am absolutely in favor of democracy but when there is contradiction between democratic values and Jewish values, Jewish and Zionist values come in first place.”

Since 2001, he proposes to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians. More recently he has improved his plan. He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas. Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.

The Union of Progressive Jews of Belgium considers that such a person is undesirable on Belgian territory. So she called civil society of our country and the political representatives to join it on March 21 next 18 to 20h, opposite the Conrad Hotel, Avenue Louise, 1050 Brussels, for a protest meeting against the presence of Avigdor Lieberman in the hotel launches.

Important Note: We have assured the police that this meeting would be conducted with dignity. We rely on the sense of responsibility of all those who will join us.

The slogans that we offer:

No to Lieberman’s ethnic cleansing and racist mass treatment Stop the blockade of Gaza Stop the colonization of the West Bank and East Jerusalem Stop building the wall of annexation Respect international law

For the Union of Progressive Jews of Belgium Anne and Henry Grauwels Wajnblum, Co-Chairs

SOAP

The Israeli Minister Lieberman and his friends of Shin Bet who are speaking about 'Jewish' democracy and who accuse everybody of 'espionage', 'infiltration' and 'terrorism'...
It is the same soap.


A soap opera, sometimes called "soap" for short, is an ongoing, episodic work of dramatic fiction presented in serial format on television or radio. The name soap opera stems from the original dramatic serials broadcast on radio that had soap manufacturers such as Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, and Lever Brothers as sponsors and producers. These early radio serials were broadcast in weekday daytime slots when mostly housewives would be available to listen; thus the shows were aimed at and consumed by a predominantly female audience.

Democracy and tyranny: where is the difference?



McCain Proposes Indefinite Detention Without Trial for Citizens

John McCain


Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) has introduced a bill that would allow the President to imprison an unlimited number of American citizens (as well as foreigners) indefinitely without trial. Known as The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010, or S. 3081, the bill authorizes the President to deny a detainee a trial by jury simply by designating that person an “enemy belligerent.”

The bill, which has eight cosponsors, explicitly names U.S. citizens as among those who can be detained indefinitely without trial:

An individual, including a citizen of the United States, determined to be an unprivileged enemy belligerent ... may be detained without criminal charges and without trial for the duration of hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners in which the individual has engaged, or which the individual has purposely and materially supported, consistent with the law of war and any authorization for the use of military force provided by Congress pertaining to such hostilities.

Democracy: We have no right of defense

monster-monsters


1) Theoretically: 'One of the most important criteria for making a government a democracy is the fact that all individuals (including the common person) have the right to defend themselves before their accusers'... 
2) In practice: We have no right of defense.

As action group, we were for years the victim of the mainstream media that tried to criminalize us.

One of our members has been imprisoned for 20 months.
During 10 years long, the media named him a "self-proclaimed child hunter ', a 'pedophile' and 'mentally ill'.
The Belgian government is still trying to close the childpornography case Zandvoort (The Netherlands).
Marcel Vervloesem who is seriously ill (cancer, heart disease, diabetics, kidney disease, more than 20 hospitalizations and surgical interventions), still has a interdiction to work with our organization around childporn or to speak with the press...
