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

Image result for blogs banned in Turkey by wordpressWe have received copies from WordPress.com of Court Orders granted to Turkey to order them to  ban this blog thefreeonline in Turkey and for internet users ”originating on Turkey”and also around 50 more blogs for posts against fascism, racism and patriarchy by the ‘elected dictator’ Erdogan and in favour or Democratic Confederalism. ( see list below, includes Latuff Cartoons, Desert Peace, Uprooted Palestinians, etc).

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. This while exploiting the same  refugees as illegal semi slave labour and recruiting them as jihadi mercenaries to invade and ”ethnically cleanse” (a euphemism for genocide) Rojava and now parts of Northern Iraq. see..

“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

Trump beats up NATO members in American Protection Racket

   by Finian Cunningham    The capo-in-chief flew into Brussels like many feared he would, beating up on other NATO members with a combination of blackmail and extortion.

President Trump wants the others to cough up more dough for the “protection” provided to them by the United States. The American leader berated European heads of state as if they were naughty children, accusing them of “freeloading” on US military power for their defense over many decades, and of giving nothing back.

Trump singled out Germany in particular for his sharpest dressing down. He accused the top European economic power of being “controlled by Russia” owing to its supposed dependence on Russian oil and gas.

Trump used that claim as a form of blackmail, alleging that Germany has been giving billions of dollars to Moscow for energy supplies, while cheating on financial payments to NATO because it relies on US military defenses. Continue reading Trump beats up NATO members in American Protection Racket

Great Britain’s Most Censored recent Shocking Scandals: Our Top 10. (Military)

 by michaellee   at TruePublica
 In this article, we have attempted to identify the most censored stories of modern times in Britain. We have asked the opinions of one of the most famous and celebrated journalists and documentary film-makers of our time, a high-profile former Mi5 intelligence officer, a veteran journalist of the Iraq war, a gagged ex-army medic along with the head of one of the worlds largest charities. ….

1. Iraq sanctions – the death toll that wasn’t

Before the full-scale British/American led attack on Iraq in 2003-11, a US, UK and UN sanctions regime was imposed on Iraq on the pretext of denying Saddam Hussein the materials necessary to make weapons of mass destruction. Items banned from Iraq under this rationale included a vast number of items needed for everyday life.

Undisputed UN figures have since shown that 1.7 million Iraqi civilians died due to the West’s brutal sanctions regime, half of whom were known to be children. The mass death was seemingly intended. Among items banned by the UN sanctions were equipment essential for Iraq’s national water treatment system. Continue reading Great Britain’s Most Censored recent Shocking Scandals: Our Top 10.

Mobilising for Climate Justice: Eco-anarchism in the UK

A direct action group shut down roads in London’s political district Friday evening to oppose new runway construction at London’s Heathrow Airport.

The rush-hour road-block in Parliament Square was the culmination of a campaign by Vote No Heathrow, an autonomous branch of the Rising Up direct action network. It saw a 14 day hunger-strike, solidarity fasts and arrests for non-violent civil disobedience.

Around 30 activists blocked a busy intersection next to the UK parliament demanding UK Labour and the Scottish National Party vote against the runway at Monday’s crucial parliamentary vote. Some were on the final day of a two-week hunger strike. Continue reading Mobilising for Climate Justice: Eco-anarchism in the UK

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.
