Call For End To Sharia Courts After Report Shows Widespread Injustice

Press Release
December 17, 2008

A new report* showing that Muslim women are discriminated against and encounter gross bias when they subject themselves to Sharia adjudications was welcomed today by The One Law for All Campaign, which is supported by a variety of organisations and individuals.
* http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7783627.stm

The campaign’s spokesperson Maryam Namazie said: ‘This research reinforces our own findings that Sharia Councils and Muslim Arbitration Tribunals are discriminatory and unfair. However, the solution to the miscarriages of justice is not the vetting of Imams coming to the UK as the report has recommended but an end to the use and implementation of Sharia law and religious-based tribunals.’ read full story / add a comment

There are 161 people in this country looking for a new political organisation. Sadly agressive little mobs
have an ability to re-structure and re-group at enormous rates of rapidity. They will not be doing so in time

The Sunday papers will busily eulogise on her contribution to Women's Politics, whilst it is evident
that she has dealt women's health issues a cancerous body blow. She copper-fastened the most
brutal econmic inequality and two-tier approach to women's health since the foundation of the state.

Let's be frank about it, Mary Harney's Genital Warts story is a shame crying out for a tongue wagging.

As the most cultured amongst us know this year's Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology was shared by scientists in that trade who have made inroads in the virus research lark. One laureate managed to link up the HPV group of viruses with cervical cancer & before you could say "love me warts and all" most European states decided to vaccinate young wans against only 3 of the near 100 strains of HPV or "genital warts" a virus which indeed doesn't always produce warts...........it being a sly killer and all. read full story / add a comment

Marie Stopes International (MSI) has become the first reproductive
health agency to offer Irish women abortion consultation and
counselling services by telephone. The charity has also reduced its
fees by the average cost of a discount air fare from Ireland to
England, to alleviate the financial hardship faced by many Irish women
who have to travel overseas to obtain abortion services.

When the Irish constitution was unveiled in 1937 it set out a special place for women within the home. In Ireland as elsewhere ‘women’s life within the home’ has to a large extent been characterized by long hours of thankless drudgery. While the struggles of Irish women for greater liberties during the last century have improved our lives in many ways, the drudgery of housework remains thankless and the workplace has not brought the liberation that certain feminists promised. As anarchists see it, this is because as long as we live in a capitalist society women (or men) can never be meaningfully liberated. read full story / add a comment

Kobra Najjar, an Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery has lost her final appeal for amnesty. Iranian women’s rights activists working on her case saythat Kobra has exhausted all domestic legal remedies and that her execution by stoning could happen any time. Kobra is a victim of domestic violence who was forced into prostitution by her abusive husband in order to support his heroin addiction. He was murdered by one of Kobra’s “clients” who sympathized with her plight. Kobra has already served 8 years in prison as an accessory to her husband’s murder. The man who murdered her husband also served 8 years in prison and was free after paying blood money and undergoing 100 lashes, while Kobra faces imminent stoning to death for adultery - the prostitution her husband forced upon her. Yet another example of Iranian justice. read full story / add a comment
