Colombia: US backed Right murders over 313 Community Activists

Over 313 Murders of Human Rights and Environment Defenders, Denounce Colombian Activists.. Government Silent

‘With the guerrillas finally withdrawing and disbanding in a ‘Peace Process’ the rightwing capitalists,  oligarchy and landlords are sending their hired mercenaries to torture and kill hundreds of activists in Unions,  community and environmental  groups. In Cauca [in the Colombian countryside] alone, there are now a reported 12 different such armed groups operating with impunity, also as narco-trafficking organizations’.

During the last two days of the event dated from 16-18 July, at least four new murders took place in Colombia, which the Colombian government blatantly ignored, said the activists.

Countries like Norway, Denmark and Singapore raised questions about civil society engagement and the worrying situation in Colombia.

The recent phase of the violence against social leaders, environmental and human rights defenders has escalated since the signing of the Peace Agreement in 2016.

[4], “In Colombia hundreds of people are being left behind through violent murder taking place under the governments nose. Social and community leaders are being targeted.” said Diego Cardona of CENSAT.The recently murdered four activists are Ibes Trujillo, afro-descendant leader from the northern Cauca [4]; Juan de Jesús Moreno Palacio, afro-descendant teacher killed in the school he worked at in Curillo – Caquetá [5]; Luis Eduardo Dagua, leader of the vereda el Carmelo whose body was found with clear signs of torture; and Roberto Jaraba, leader from trade union ‘sintramineros’.

The activists condemned the Colombian government and supported the group of countries involved in the “The Subgroup on Human Rights of International Cooperation in Colombia” [6] , chaired by Canada and the Netherlands, who rejected the murders, threats, harassment and stigmatization against human rights defenders in Colombia.

Ibes had disappeared since July 10th, 2018 and his body was found by the river on Tuesday, July 17th by communities who had organized for his search. This murder has been condemned by the United Nations Office for Human Rights (UNOHR)

[5] He reported threats against him for 3 years ago which is why he had been relocated from Cartagena del Chaira, the same province where there are 40 teachers threatened. [6] http://www.hchr.org.co/index.php/inforlegitimo-de-construir-paz-en-todo-el-territorio-colombiano

Luis Eduardo Dagua, his body was found with clear signs of torture;

Following the terms of the agreement, FARC has demobilized and disassembled into camps across Colombia over the past two years. The onus was on the Colombian government to fill the power vacuum. It dropped the ball.

“The territories FARC controlled are left with no authorities,” said Wright. “The Colombian state never had a presence in many of those areas. And so in Cauca [in the Colombian countryside] alone, there are a reported 12 different armed groups now operating, mainly as narco-trafficking organizations.”

“It’s the social leaders and human and environmental rights defenders whose shoulders the burden of building peace rests upon,” added Laffay.

‘TheFreeOnline’ blog banned in Turkey with Dozens more pro Rojava and anti Fascist sites

thefreeonline is a modest blog which promotes a utopian novel called The Free and posts relevant news, etc, in this case about the inspiring bottom up democratic revolution in Rojava, which has been brutally repressed in Turkey itself and now in Afrin with the Turkish invasion.2013121864316309734_20You can’t read thefreeonline anymore in Turkey (except with a Vpn or Tor) , or if you’re a person ”originating in Turkey” (we’re not sure how that works, but the order seems to aim at blogs translating or sharing news from exiled Turkish people and supporters..

The ban includes the suppression of much more frequented sites, see list below, and probably there are many more, and perhaps Google and other blog hosts have followed wordpress’s example of refusing to appeal the banning orders.

WordPress’s statement says  ”we must comply to keep WordPress.com accessible for everyone in Turkey. We will not be challenging this order in court”. In other words Erdogan is blackmailing again, threatening to ban all WordPress.com blogs from Turkey (as they did before) unless those critical of him are suppressed.

We could fill pages with a list of documented  blackmail scams by Erdogan over the years, one of his most disgusting being extracting billions of euros in EU tax money in exchange for blocking refugee boats.

“I Was Devastated”: Tim Berners-Lee, the Man Who Created the World Wide Web, Has Some Regrets

Berners-Lee has seen his creation debased by everything from fake news to mass surveillance. But he’s got a team of volunteers and a plan to fix it with Solid,  a decentralized platform for social Web applications. In the Solid platform, users’ data is managed independently. Demonstration  HERE.
For people who want to make sure the Web serves humanity, we have to concern ourselves with what people are building on top of it,” Tim Berners-Lee told me one morning in downtown Washington, D.C., about a half-mile from the White House.He was speaking about the future of the Internet, as he does often and fervently and with great animation at a remarkable cadence. With an Oxonian wisp of hair framing his chiseled face, Berners-Lee appears the consummate academic—communicating rapidly, in a clipped London accent, occasionally skipping over words and eliding sentences as he stammers to convey a thought.  …..Image result for save the internet Continue reading Saving Internet: ‘Solid’ Platform plans to subvert Commercial and Political Control

Both the previous threats and those she received recently will not stop the courageous and honest work she has been doing.

On July 2, 2018, the feminist activist and journalist FridaGuerrera Villalvazo began to receive more hate messages in which she was harassed and threatened with death due to her journalistic work (documenting and opposing Femicides) .

Since 2016, Frida Guerrera has dedicated her time to documenting cases of feminicide, throughout the country, and has accompanied the families of the victims, not only telling their stories and giving them a voice, but also supporting them with legal advice by an office of lawyers.

The work of FridaGuerrera has been recognized both nationally and internationally, not only for the professionalism and sensitivity with which it addresses each case of feminicide.., but also for the serious situation that exists in Mexico regarding the issue of violence against women.  Proof of this is that the number of femicides registered in the country since January 1, 2016 to July 2, 2018 has been 5, 347 cases.

Poster crew run #spycop takeover of London ad spaces

 

 In their latest adventure occupying advertising real estate across the capital, subvertisers the Special Patrol Group have set giant posters up on bus stops and on the Tube. In a statement, the group said:

These posters are up on the Underground because Metropolitan Police #SpyCops have deceived women into relationships, fathered children and lied about it in court.

And they still won’t release the names of the perpetrators. It’s time to stop the whitewash in the #spycops inquiry. Release the names! Release the files!

The endlessly stalled inquiry, which has seen ringmaster John MItting grant anonymity to nearly 30% of the force’s undercovers, has largelylost the confidenceof its victims, with three victims now fundraising to mount a legal challenge against the way it’s being run. They said:

Our fear is that if it continues in its current trajectory that the Undercover Policing Inquiry will be a whitewash. We have been forced to initiate a legal challenge to the Home Secretary’s decision to refuse to appoint a panel with the skill and diversity required. Our aim is to restore public confidence in the Undercover Policing Inquiry and its ability to get to the truth.


For more on the current state of the inquiry and the push to make it fit for purpose check outthis updatefrom the Campaign Opposing Police Surveillance.
