The adoption of a human rights instrument by the UN General Assembly in Dec 2008 led to the Global Financial Crisis in 2009. Changes involving international human rights law strongly favored the poorer Developing Asia, incl China, over the West. However, in human rights 'the ends do not justify the means'. A Western rebellion could help ensure an ethical human rights 'bottom-line' for all States and therefore fair competition without exploitation. read full story / add a comment
British State Terrorism
international / rights and freedoms / opinion/analysis Thursday December 27, 2012 00:49 by BrianClarke   image 1 image
Police state measures reflect British current policy, in what is supposedly a peace process in British Occupied Ireland. Compromised civil liberties expanded secret service surveillance, eroded habeas corpus rights, formalized secret service tribunals, permitted psychological torture and internment without a transparent trial, all in the name of the terrorist narrative.

All of this continues while at the same time, the British Government itself is being exposed for its state terrorism of murdering human rights lawyers in British Occupied Ireland. Political prisoners like Marian Price and Martin Corey languish in Britain's gulag of human rights abuse and war crimes.

Wikipedia defines "Law-Fare" as:
Lawfare is a recently coined word not yet appearing in the Oxford English Dictionary, a portmanteau of the words 'law' and 'warfare', said to describe a form of asymmetric warfare.

Lawfare is asserted by some to be the illegitimate use of domestic or international law with the intention of damaging an opponent, winning a public relations victory, financially crippling an opponent, or tying up the opponent's time so that they cannot pursue other ventures

It has recently become a staple in the Zio-Nazi attempts to stifle all criticism and any and all attempts to help Palestinians obtain their legal rights.

British Secret  State Terrorism

The Ministry of Defence in London has just paid out £14 million in compensation to hundreds of Iraqis who were illegally detained and tortured by British forces during the five-year occupation of the south-east of the country, demonstrating the British have broken their promises and undertakings to the international community once again.

On the 18th January 1978, the Government of the Republic of Ireland brought an application against Britain, before the Commission of International Human Rights in Strasbourg (ii) that various interrogation practices--in particular the so-called 'five techniques', which included wall- standing, hooding and deprivation of sleep and food--and other practices to which suspects were subjected amounted to torture and inhuman or degrading treatment contrary to Article 3...The Commission unanimously found that the five techniques did constitute a practice of torture and that other practices amounted to inhuman and degrading treatment

The New Zealand Labour Party wants the rebuild of Christchurch following massive and tragic earthquakes to be from the 'Grassroots up, not the Beehive down'. So far the rebuild has, in my view, involved a fanatical top-down bureaucratic/Corporate control. From the 'grassroots' reflects the global ethical human rights approach of our council which emphasizes a bottom-up development and a bottom-up democracy. PS. the Beehive is where parliament meets. read full story / add a comment

Face of Pseudo Gang
international / rights and freedoms / news report Tuesday November 27, 2012 21:08 by BrianClarke   image 2 images   video 2 video files
When standard military operations and bombing failed to defeat the Mau Mau insurgency of Kenya in the 50s, the British created gangs of friendly tribesmen, who were pretending to be terrorists. These "pseudo gangs," quickly threw the Mau Mau on the defensive by befriending, then ambushing, genuine freedom fighters or guiding the British to freedom fighter camps. What worked half-century ago is still undermining trust among today's resistance to British Occupation in Ireland. Forming fake republican groups, is a British speciality in Ireland today, practiced since 1971, when Kitson recruited 'turned' IRA members, nicknamed the 'Freds' operating undercover in Brigadier Kitson's area of responsibility. read full story / add a comment

It looks like the Israeli Regime is actually fairly terrified that the Palestinians might have them up in court for their years and years of oppression and undoubted War Crimes, and are using their Political agents embedded within the UK Gov't to try and prevent Palestinians exercising their rights in the future read full story / add a comment

As the Gaza conflict rages on, the Palestinians demand for human rights and return to their homeland continues for many outside of the occupied territories.
Millions of refugees scattered throughout the Middle East live in refugee camps rife with violence, extreme poverty and no support or assistance. This twinned with getting stuck in the crossfire of many host-country conflicts such as Syria, Lebanon and Iraq make their situation even more intractable. When the opportunity to work does open up, the same people are greeted with more exploitation in trying to make a livelihood.
We widen the lens away from Gaza to see what life is like for Palestinian youths growing up in Beirut, Lebanon.
