Venezuela: Amnesty lets down human rights defenders | Green Left Weekly

amodernmanifesto:

In a recent article, Amnesty International accused the Venezuelan government of a “witch hunt” when a right-wing opposition mayor Daniel Ceballos was arrested.

However, Amnesty has yet to use such strong language against the five weeks of human rights violations people in Venezuela have suffered at the hands of violent opposition sectors. The “witch hunt” term demonises the people’s right to bring such criminals to justice.

In its March 20 statement, “Venezuela: Arrest of local mayor signals potential ‘witch hunt’”, Amnesty says Ceballos, mayor of San Cristobal, capital of Tachira state on the Colombian border, was arrested for his “alleged involvement in anti-government protests … authorities in Venezuela seem to be setting the scene for a witch hunt against opposition leaders”.

It is important to counter the horrendous distortions contained in this article, because the private media will quote its positions as fact. Articles like this embolden the criminals and coup participants who are among opposition leaders. It also makes it harder for those of us who have suffered from opposition violence to demand arrests, and authorities to carry them out.

Britain: Thousands demand 'people's budget', protest fresh austerity | Green Left Weekly

amodernmanifesto:

Thousands of people protested against British Conservative Chancellor George Osborne’s budget on March 19, the Morning Star said the next day. The protests were part of a national day of action called by the People’s Assembly.

Across Britain, there were marches, rallies and festivals demanding a people’s budget for Britain.

Before the protests, People’s Assembly national secretary Sam Fairbairn said Osboure, “will be announcing another round of cuts and privatisation, demonstrating that despite the so-called recovery, the government remains committed to dismantling the welfare state and all gains working people have fought for”.

Among other measures, the People’s Assembly has called for the guarantee of a living wage, rent controls, the creation of green jobs, more affordable housing and taxes on empty properties and bankers’ bonuses.

It has also called for the government to consider cuts to the 100 billion pound Trident nuclear missile replacement program.

Fairbairn said the success of a petition for a people’s budget, with 2000 signatures on its first day, showed the strength of opposition to the austerity of the Conservative-Liberal Democratic coalition government.

Poverty levels have soared since the coalition came to power, with ballooning food, rent and energy costs and frozen salaries crushing households.

“This is the year that we have the opportunity to give the knockout blow to this weak government,” Fairbairn said. “After today we all need to make sure the People’s Assembly national demonstration on June 21 is massive.”

Abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy is rare, and often happens under tragic circumstances where women need every medical option available to them. When politicians push 20-week bans like they’re doing right now in West Virginia, they’re distorting that reality for the sake of their political and ideological agendas.
This week, a new poll shows that the majority of West Virginia voters agree: Legislators don’t belong in women’s personal health decisions, and extreme bills like this aren’t the right priority.

Israel is employing “punitive measures” against six Palestinian prisoners who are on hunger strike, according to a statement published by the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT), a Geneva-based human rights network.

Four of the men are being held in administrative detention, a draconian practice that allows the Israeli occupation authorities to detain Palestinians without charges on “secret evidence.” Akram Fasisi, Waheed Abu Maria and Muammar Banat have been on hunger strike since 9 January and Ameer Shammas started on 11 January.

According to Israeli Military Order 1651, Palestinians can be detained in administrative detention for up to six months without charges. In practice, however, military courts regularly rubber-stamp requests to renew the orders, effectively enabling Israel to detain Palestinians indefinitely without ever charging them.
