Guerrero/National: Government “Sloth” Continues 40 Months after the Disappearance of the 43 from Ayotzinapa | SIPAZ Blog

Guerrero/National: Government “Sloth” Continues 40 Months after the Disappearance of the 43 from Ayotzinapa | SIPAZ Blog: The objective of the meeting was to have a dialogue with the new Secretary of the Interior, Alfonso Navarrete Prida, so that he could resume the commitments that his predecessor, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, had maintained. The committee of fathers and mothers of the 43 condemned “the sloth of the Secretary of the Interior with the victims of forced disappearance. Its zero commitment to human rights and justice”, and they demanded “the pending dialogue as soon as possible.”

Pro-Kurdish HDP deputy Yıldırım to be stripped of parliamentary status for insulting Erdoğan – Stockholm Center for Freedom

Pro-Kurdish HDP deputy Yıldırım to be stripped of parliamentary status for insulting Erdoğan – Stockholm Center for Freedom: Yıldırım, the HDP’s Deputy Group Chair at the Turkish Parliament, had called Erdoğan “the palace’s shoddy emperor” during a September 2015 speech he gave in protest of the Turkish government forces’ human rights violations at urban centers in clashes with PKK militants.

Two years later, a court in the Kurdish city of Muş trying the deputy handed down the prison sentence for 14 months, depriving him from certain political, civic, custodial rights, including his right to be elected to Parliament, to get appointed to any state, provincial, municipal or neighborhood position. Yıldırım also could not exercise his right to join a political party, charitable organization, NGO, syndicate, or corporation according to the 53rd article of the Turkish Penal Code (TCK).

Robert Jago // In the trial of Gerald Stanley, an all-white jury runs from justice – mediaINDIGENA

In the trial of Gerald Stanley, an all-white jury runs from justice – mediaINDIGENA: There is a video from outside the courthouse in Battleford, Saskatchewan last night. It shows a screen which is split in four and displaying the courtroom, the jury box, the judge, and the accused in the Gerald Stanley case.

As the verdict is announced, there are gasps and shouts; Colten Boushie’s mother cries out. Bailiffs grab Gerald Stanley and run out of the frame, and to a waiting truck under heavy RCMP protection.

In the jury box, a dark-haired woman in a short dress, and long hooded sweater jumps up as Stanley passes, and runs off camera herself—getting away from the family and the assembled Indians in the courtroom.

I would like to think that she ran because she was ashamed of what she had just done. But the likelier answer is that she ran for the same reason that she and her fellow members of the all-white jury found Gerald Stanley not guilty of killing 22-year-old Colten Boushie. They were afraid of Indians, especially angry Indians.

State of emergency declared in Ethiopia amid political unrest | World news | The Guardian

State of emergency declared in Ethiopia amid political unrest | World news | The Guardian: Mulatu Gemechu, deputy secretary of the opposition Oromo Federalist Congress, said Ethiopia needed a completely new political system after years of unrest. “Ethiopians now need a government that respects their rights, not one that keeps beating and killing them,” he said.

Rights advocates have frequently criticised Ethiopia’s government for mass arrests and long jail terms handed to political opponents and journalists. But more than 6,000 political prisoners have been freed since January as the government has struggled to quell discontent.
