Julian Assange is the public face of Wikileaks, the organization that has done so much to expose the evil actions of the US and other governments - actions which those governments would rather keep secret.
He is currently under lock and key in the UK, on trumped-up charges widely seen as an excuse to get him into captivity with the aim of discouraging further disclosures of information which it is so evidently in the public interest to disclose.
An award of a Nobel Peace Prize to this courageous man would recognize his contribution to justice and would encourage further leaks of information from those who are considering revealing facts but who might otherwise decide not to.
Baby Peter Connelly, Victoria Climbié, RyanLovell Hancox, Little Charlie Hunt to name just a few.
All of these babies were deliberately and brutally attacked under a sustained campaign of torture and hatred before being murdered by an adult supposedly looking after them.
Justice for the families and for the children themselves can only be achieved by the reinstatement of a penalty that fits the horrific nature of the crime.
Soft justice simply does not work.
We need harsh and unforgiving penalties for the perpetrators of these kinds of deliberate and despicable acts on defenceless babies and children.
In November 1981, 29 years ago almost to the day, a seventeen year old kid named Paul “Poncho” Henderson was found dead on the catwalk under the Centennial bridge in Miramichi, New Brunswick. And for 29 years his family have been denied both respect and justice in the loss of their son and brother.
From the time the body was discovered the police appeared determined to shrug this boys death off as some sort of accident or the result of misadventure. The head investigating RCMP officer at the time attributed the cause of death to a “fall” despite the fact that the body was positioned in such a way that no fall could result in and in a spot where there was nowhere to fall from. Add to that the discovery of this kids sneakers neatly placed about 50 meters from the body further along the catwalk. Paul’s family were poor…his mother, a single mom, was struggling to raise her 5 sons on social assistance.
The “lack of justice” system ran right over this woman and her family… they weren’t even given the dignity of being asked to identify the body of their lost son and brother and the funeral home where Paul was prepared for burial took the liberty of sealing the casket before the family even got to see the body. I doubt you or I would accept such disrespectful and hurtful treatment if it were our lost loved one.
In defence of Maurice J Kirk BVSc, representative of thousands of victims of financial exploitation and legal oppression, we are targeting “HM Partnership”. By that we mean authorities that are protected from prosecution by a Royal Charter and employ individuals who abuse “Her Majesty’s Prerogative” not to comply with the Rule of Law.
“HM Partnership” has omitted Article 13 from the UK Human Rights Act 1998. In the European Convention for Human Rights, Article 13 guarantees an effective remedy before national authorities, notwithstanding that the violation has been committed by persons acting in an official capacity.
A forensic analysis about Maurice is here.
The petition is now required to FREE Maurice from Cardiff prison. You can
His latest cry for help is here.
Following our tradition of meetings in Westminster, we recorded the launch of our Association of McKenzie Friends on 6th March 2012, the day of the world wide protest against child abuse.
Previous meetings were recorded in the Grand Committee Room and in Room 14 and led to Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694, and links to Our meetings on video.
The collection of all our petitions with latest comments can be found here.
Given Maurice's exceptional experiences in court rooms and prison cells, he offered to support the Musas as McKenzie Friend when nobody else was around. Their six Nigerian children have been stolen by Haringey Council who cover up their wrong-doings about as desperately as South Wales Police...
Maurice has now been in prison since 22nd December 2011, on remand, while trying to keep up with some 12 or so court cases. As a Litigant in Person, his human rights for a fair trial get violated virtually every day: he cannot phone people he wants, he doesn't have access to his files or computer, and the Police even determine that evidence he has found against them must not leave the prison! You can't make it up!...
We object to the United States proposal for Afghanistan being presented this week to NATO ministers.
It is not a peace plan. It is a plan for four more years of combat by US and NATO forces.
It is not a plan for US or Western troop withdrawals but for further occupation. It is a proposal to gradually lessen Western casualties and lessen Western visibility while transitioning to Western-financed, Western-armed, and Western-advised Afghan army combat in a civil conflict. It is a plan for long-term Western military bases.
It is not a plan to stop al Qaeda or terrorists from attacking Western targets. There are virtually no al Qaeda left in Afghanistan. The most recent terrorist attacks on America have been inspired by our deepening wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan. In seeking to save our military reputation, we all but assure future threats against Western targets. CIA officials even describe Yemen’s al Qaeda cell as more dangerous than al Qaeda in Pakistan. [NYT, Oct. 18, 2010]
It pre-empts the Administration’s own proposal for a full “review” of Afghan policy in December. The timing instead is aimed at shoring up a faltering Western alliance.
The central proposal--to increase the scale of the Afghan army and police in order to prop up a corrupt Kabul regime--will never work without a parallel cease-fire, deep institutional reform, enforceable human rights, and peace-keeping arrangements with leadership by neutral countries.
The current expenditure of over $100 billion American dollars per year for Afghanistan could be spent on medical care for 15 million veterans, or 15 million college scholarships, or 1.8 million new teachers, or 72 million installations of renewable energy for American homes.
Muslim extremists who brought shame to the memory of the dead yesterday by breaking the traditional two-minute silence with chants of ‘British soldiers burn in hell’.
Ironically, it was the freedom for which thousands fought that allowed them to stage their demonstration at the stroke of 11am – the exact moment the nation came to a halt at the Cenotaph, across the country, and after parallel services at British bases in Afghanistan.
After seeing our own children targeted by their bus driver, when no other adult or teacher has ever had a complaint on them, and then having one of them get suspended off the bus for "playing" and hearing him deny it, as his parents, we went to defend him at the school, and the administrative office only to be told nothing could be done.
It was his word against the bus driver's. Cameras on the bus would ensure the child and the bus driver from having to defend their own word. It would also keep the bus driver from feeling he/she has to constantly keep their eyes on the children while driving to make sure they are behaving rather than keeping his eyes on the road. Which in my opinion is a safety hazard.
Κοιν.: Πρόεδρο της Δημοκρατίας, κ. Κάρολο Παπούλια,
Υπουργό Προστασίας του Πολίτη, κ. Χρήστο Παπουτσή,
Αντιπρόεδρος της Κυβέρνησης, κ. Θεόδωρο Πάγκαλο,
Make known to: The Minister of Citizen's Protection, The Minister of Justice, The Prime Minister of Greece.
Με αφορμή τις δίκες των 11 ανηλίκων στη Λάρισα στις 8 και 9 Δεκεμβρίου 2010, οι οποίοι κατηγορούνται για σειρά κακουργηματικών πράξεων, ορισμένες από τις οποίες εμπίπτουν στις διατάξεις του αντιτρομοκρατικού νόμου (187 του Ποινικού Κώδικα περί σύστασης εγκληματικής οργάνωσης). Οι 11 ανήλικοι κατηγορούνται για επεισόδια και καταστροφές που έγιναν στο κέντρο της Λάρισας μετά από την πορεία της 8ης Δεκέμβρη 2008 για τη διαμαρτυρία της δολοφονίας του Αλέξανδρου Γρηγορόπουλου από τον ειδικό φρουρό Επαμεινώνδα Κορκονέα. Την ίδια ημέρα ανάλογες διαμαρτυρίες εκδηλώθηκαν σε διάφορες πόλεις της Ελλάδας. Συνολικά την περίοδο 6 Δεκεμβρίου - 14 Ιανουαρίου 2008 έγιναν πάνω από 250 συλλήψεις πανελλαδικά που κατέληξαν σε 67 προφυλακίσεις.
Όπως αναφέρουν οι μάρτυρες κατηγορίας, οι ανήλικοι συλληφθέντες κρατήθηκαν στα κρατητήρια, κάποιοι ξυλοκοπήθηκαν, ενώ στερήθηκαν στοιχειώδη δικαιώματά τους, όπως η επικοινωνία με δικηγόρο και με τους γονείς τους.
Συνυπογράφουμε το κείμενο τριάντα δύο φορέων της Λάρισας, όπου γίνεται αναφορά στην επιχείρηση εφαρμογής του αντιτρομοκρατικού νόμου με αφορμή τους συλληφθέντες, όπου επισημαίνεται η ανάγκη οι μαζικές λαϊκές οργανώσεις, τα εργατικά συνδικάτα, οι ενώσεις γονέων, το κίνημα της νεολαίας, των φοιτητών, σπουδαστών, μαθητών, το συνδικαλιστικό κίνημα των ΕΒΕ, των αγροτών, οι επιστημονικές ενώσεις, οι προοδευτικοί διανοούμενοι να αγωνιστούν για την κατάργησή του.
Αξίζει να σημειωθεί ότι σε κείμενό της η Δ΄ ΕΛΜΕ Ανατολικής Αττικής, με τίτλο "Ο αντιτρομοκρατικός νόμος εν δράσει", στις 16 Φεβρουαρίου 2009, αναφέρει ότι ο καθηγητής Μανωλεδάκης, αποχωρώντας το 2001 από τη νομοπαρασκευαστική επιτροπή της Βουλής είχε προειδοποιήσει ότι «όλοι οι πολίτες μπορούν κάτω από κάποιες συγκυρίες να γίνουν δυνάμει ύποπτοι και να υποστούν τις συνέπειες των ανελεύθερων ρυθμίσεων του σχεδίου αυτού αν γίνει νόμος του κράτους».
In light of the 11 minors trials in Larisa, on the 8th and 9th of December 2010, who are accused of a series of felonies, some of which are included in the arrangements of the Anti-terrorist Law (187 of the Penal Code with regards to forming a criminal organization). The 11 minors are accused of riots and damages that took place in the center of Larisa after the 8th of December's March against the murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos, who was shot by a special guard, named Epameinondas Korkoneas. On the same day protests of this sort took place in several cities around Greece. From December 6 till January 14 2008, more than 250 people were arrested, throughout Greece, 67 of which were remanded in custody.
According to the prosecutor witnesses report, the arrested minors were kept in detention rooms, some of them brutally beaten and it is worth mentioning that they were deprived of basic rights such as contacting their attorney and their family.
We co-sign the text of the 32 Services in Larisa, in which an operation wanting to put into effect the Anti-terrorist Law is mentioned, regarding the occasion of the 11 arrested minors and it points out the need of the mass popular organizations, the working-class Unions, the parents Unions, the Activity of youngsters, College students, students, pupils, the Union Movement of EBE, Farmers, Scientific Unions, the Progressive Scholars to fight for its abolishment.
It is worth mentioning that the D' ELME of East Attiki in it's text entitled “The Anti-terrorist Law in action”, on February 16th 2009, reports that the Professor Manoledakis, resigning from the law-forming Parliament's Committee had notified in advance that “all citizens under certain coincidences can be suspects and be subjected to the consequences of the non-liberal adjustments of this project should it be the State's Law”.
On March 7, 2009, the lives of four innocent people were taken by the hands of a deranged man. This did not only affect the lives of those four people, it affected the lives of many. Now there are several children without parents, brothers and sisters without siblings, moms and dads left anguished at the loss of their child, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, grandparents, and friends all holding a huge void in their hearts all because Scott Abbott selfishly took the lives of Jerri Lynn Cole, Josh Gilleo, Nika Sandlin, and Chad Gilbert. October 4, 2010, began grand trial. After five days of deliberation, the jury rendered a verdict. Scott Abbott was GUILTY, but it was not until the following Monday that Scott was sentenced, by the jury, to life without parole.
On December 1, 2010, Judge Mac Parsons will make a final ruling. With this petition, we hope to gain many signatures by those who support death penalty, especially, for this case. Neither of the four deserved to die the way they did, it was gruesome and inhumane. Now that they are gone, they can no longer speak for themselves. Please help us be their voice by signing this petition in hopes that Judge Parsons will see that not only did this impact a few people, instead, this horrific crime has affected a community, a state, a nation, and a world of people.
Currently, there is a lot of angst among military and ex-military circles regarding the upcoming court case of several soldiers and their actions in Afghanistan.
They have been charged with several offences regarding a raid on a village in Afghanistan.
I believe the calls for the charges to be dropped, personal attacks on military law personnel and the procedures being followed should be stopped.
It is un-Australian to not allow the soldiers a fair-go, a chance for a fair hearing and also the knowledge for all Australians and the countries in which our soldiers operate that our soldiers adhere and obey strict orders for the treatment of civilians and the rules for when they can and cannot open fire.
Honor killings are an embarrassment to humanity.
Fellow human beings are being assassinated in the most inhumane methods. Daughters and wives are being brutally tortured, stoned, and murdered by their own families, all in the name of "honor." This widespread epidemic of such atrocious acts fueled by fundamentalist thinking—dating back to pagan times—is inexcusable. Honor killings are often supported, overlooked, and undermined by authorities and persons of influence.
These murders are committed not just in Muslim countries but around the world, with alarmingly increasing rates on such continents as Europe and North America, which contain some of the most advanced countries of the 21st Century. It is a shame to all humanity that women (and some men) are subject to such barbaric crimes—threatened, tortured in agony, dying the most gruesome deaths.
Statistics Related to Honor Killing:
- 93% of honor killings worldwide are committed against women
- 91% of honor killings are committed by Muslims
- 81% of honor killings committed in Western civilizations are for being “too Western”
- 81% of female victims of honor killing 25 years or younger are murdered by their family of origin
- 68% of women who are victims of honor killing are gruesomely tortured
- Approximately 50% of honor killings are committed by multiple perpetrators

Saem Pok is being deported back to Cambodia under a 1996 law that requires mandatory deportations for permanent alien residents convicted of a felony, the law has since been expanded to deporting for minor crimes, such as urinating in public or DUI.
According to statistics from the INS, close to 1400 Cambodian-American refugees have orders of removal for deportation. Saem's case is explained here http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-492522
Years ago Saem served a sentence for a crime and since then he became a working taxpayer with a family. Saem is the sole provider for for his disabled and legally blind finance and his two children.He has repaid his debts to society and rebuilt his life, with a steady job, family and children.
Saem is clearly not a good candidate for detainment or deportation. His detainment has converted a productive taxpayer and his family into state burdens
Gerardo Hernandez, Ramón Labañino, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez are currently in prison for acts of espionage and state terrorism against US citizens. They plotted to sabotage planes, set fires, and planned sending a mail bomb to a person in South Florida with aim of causing their death. None of these men have demonstrated any remorse for their actions.
The February 24, 1996 murders of Armando Alejandre, Carlos Costa, Mario de la Peña and Pablo Morales condemned by the United Nations Human Rights Commission, the United Nation’s Security Council, and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights gave proof to the deadly seriousness of their plans.
First, it is troubling that General Ruben Martinez Puente, Francisco Perez-Perez, Lorenzo Alberto Perez Perez who were indicted on four counts of murder, two counts of destruction of aircraft and one count of conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals in August of 2003 and Juan Pablo Roque indicted in May 1999 as a foreign agent (although he played a role in the conspiracy to murder three US citizens and one US resident) have not been pursued to the full extent of the law.
Why hasn't the U.S. Department of Justice under either the George W. Bush or Barack Obama Administrations presented Interpol with an arrest warrant for the three Cuban Air Force officials indicted for the 1996 murder of four U.S. nationals and for the Cuban agent involved in the conspiracy to have them killed?
Secondly, it is dismaying to learn that Gerardo Hernandez’s name is being raised in a possible exchange or release. He has had due process in a trial with the best attorney’s money could buy that have put on a zealous defense and appeals process for their client. Gerardo Hernandez’s conviction on conspiracy to commit murder is the only justice the victims and their families have achieved to date.
I have worked in the general field of mental health for 35 years. As a therapeutic practitioner and as a manager (Psychosocial Therapies). During that time, I have successfully worked with people with serious mental ill health, learning disability, autism, brain damage and dementia.
I have been concerned about the prescriptive treatment of people with these kinds of problems and the tendency to make judgements against their wishes, without adequate sound evidence to support those decisions. Too many assumptions are made that impact upon personal freedom, dignity, informed choice and self-expression.
I have also witnessed many misdiagnoses and very unsound decisions, within Health & Social Care services and in the Law Courts and Child & Family Courts. The health, wellbeing and lives of my clients / families have been seriously affected these poor decisions. Many other cases have been reported to me.
Although I have met increasing numbers of skilful, person centred psychiatrists, therapists and social workers, there is still a tendency for the institutions to rely on outdate, erroneous assumptions about the cause, nature and resolution of these problems. Many practitioner are being constrained by ‘local’ policies & decisions.
My concern is that there are many contraventions of people’s Human Rights every day, on the most spurious interpretation of the use of special powers. It has become evident that the decisions are biased towards social control, rather the therapy. Local Institutions are very risk averse, protecting their position rather than client’s interests.
Most cases I have worked with, where there is psychosis, agitated behaviour and ‘behaviour problems’, there has been clear evidence of childhood & adolescent trauma and abuse. This may be at home, in social care and education institutions. Adults are also distressed in this way by ‘domestic / relationship abuses’.
This can be anything from physical, psychological, emotional and sexual abuse, through ‘culture shock’, to bullying in home, school or work. Although I have been able to demonstrate this in individual cases, aided recovery and have successfully challenged most misdiagnoses, it has been difficult to get general attitudes changed.
I am campaigning for a thorough World Health Organisation review of Psychiatric thinking, theoretical foundations and health and social care practices. The evidence of organic causes are very rare and yet psychiatry largely works of the assumption of ‘mental incompetence’, due to genetic, or organic failings.
The social and clinical treatment have as many negative effects as they have benefits as they do benefits, especially when used indefinitely and on the basis of misdiagnosis and false assumptions.
The influence of psychiatry and forensic psychology, within the Law Courts is very dubious. The ‘expert witnesses’ are often the worst examples of clinical psychiatric practice and the Law is far too reliant upon their unsound assumptions and judgments. There is a very unethical aspect to psychiatric ‘expert witnesses’;
“Who is the patient and what are their rights here?”
The Thai government which is not elected by the people of Thailand, does not follow any international rules and regulations, including the Geneva Convention. They don't care about human rights or anything else.
This historical event was followed earlier this year on 10th April and 19th May 2010, with two tragic massacres. The Thai military and government shot down a pro-democracy activist movement in the streets of Bangkok. 91 unarmed civilians were killed, 2,000 injured, and also more than a few hundred people were jailed under the executive decree law.
Therefore, I would like you to take some strong action against this dictatorship, for the freedom, democracy, human rights and safety of the Thai people. In order to avoid future tragic losses and to defend democracy, we demand that the Thai government:
On August 30, 2010, a partly Deaf Native American man, John T. Williams, was shot and killed by Officer Ian Birk of the Seattle police, after Williams was seen crossing Boren Avenue at Howell Street with a folding 3-inch carving knife and wooden board.
John T. Williams, courtesey of Chief Seattle Club
Williams was standing 9 to 10 feet away when Officer Birk, a rookie officer with just two years of experience, stopped his cruiser, got out, and shouted orders at him to drop the knife three times before he fatally shot Williams in the chest four times. The confrontation lasted less than 1 minute.
Williams was of the Ditidaht First Nation, a member nation of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth, and came from a long line of Indigenous American artists in the First Nations who carved wood. It is legal in Seattle to carry a 3 inch knife or shorter. Williams sold his small totem carvings at the Pike Place Market. It was widely known in the local community that Williams was deaf in one ear and had great difficulty in communicating with people. He was known to wear headphones or ear buds.
After initial reports that Williams advanced on Officer Birk, the Seattle Police Department said they could no longer be sure that had occurred and Williams had not moved threateningly towards Officer Birk.
The Seattle Police Department is now investigating but has released no information. The Seattle Police Department has been facing controversy in the aftermath of some recent brutality cases (cops abused a Hispanic suspect & called him “Mexican piss”, another incident where Seattle cops punched a 17 years old girl for jaywalking, not to mention 5 deaths in 1 week caused by Seattle cops).
Here are some important facts:
1. Williams was shot four times in the chest, which is brutal, excessive force.
2. The confrontation lasted less than 1 minute.
3. Officer Birks reacted too quickly.
4. Williams was killed in the afternoon in broad daylight at 4.30 pm.
5. Williams was partly deaf and unable to understand Officer Birk’s orders from 9 to 10 feet away.
6. It has been a long-lasting established tradition for Native Americans to be carving wood on the streets of Seattle, which has a large Indigenous population. It’s not unusual for Native Americans to carry knives around in Seattle.
William’s sudden, tragic death at the hands of the Seattle Police Department is a serious reminder that any Deaf person’s life could be in danger should a situation with the police ever arise.
On October 27, 1967, two Northlake police officers were killed by bank robbers who were holding up the Northlake Bank. The killers were apprehended, tried and convicted.
One of the perpetrators has since died, another, anothers release is pending a final parole hearing, and a third, Ronald del Raine, sentenced to 209 years, has a parole hearing in October 2012. He is the last living offender of this heinous crime and does not deserve to be paroled.
The United States Parole commission made a decision to grant parole on January 6, 2010 for Ronald del Raine's accomplice Henry Gargano with a tentative release date of September or October 2010. The United States Parole commission made this decision without notification to the families of the slain officers or to the Northlake Police Department.
We CANNOT have have two cop killers roaming the streets and compromising officer or public safety in any capacity.
On April 19, 2010, the City Council passed a resolution condemning the action by the parole commission, and to honor the memories of Sergeant Nagle and Officer Perri and will seek to have the decision stayed or reversed.
The Northlake Police Department will be contacting the officers families and others to write victim impact letters to the parole commission as well as undertaking petitions and other measures to seek a reversal of this decision by the parole commission."
1. the financial resources available for use by governments at the local, county, state and federal levels in the United States are limited, and
2. an inordinate level of military expenditure is being made by the U.S. federal government for warfare in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, and
3. the people of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois are collectively paying or becoming indebted for approximately X million dollars per year of their limited financial resources for such warfare which supplies no identified public benefits, and
4. this warfare creates great and unnecessary harm to the people of the nations of Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and to U.S. military personnel and their families, and
5. the money spent on war is needed here at home, on jobs, education, health care, infrastructure repair, and other human needs.
Michael Joseph Jackson was an American entertainer best known for his moonwalk. He was born on August 29, 1958 and died at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009. Michael died of an overdose of the sedative drug propafol administered by docter Conrad Murray.
Murray administered the drug to Jackson without taking proper precautions and ended up killing Michael Jackson. Over a year after Michael's death, there is still no justice for Michael, I think that Murray should face the fans and take what's coming to him.
Today Murray goes to trial again with a charge of involuntary manslaughter. Lets Put him BEHIND BARS!
ON Aug 15 two brothers, Hafiz Moghees (aged 17) and Muneeb (aged 15) from a very respectable and pious family. One of the brothers was in fact a Hafiz - i - Quran, who was leading Taraawi prayers at a local mosque were beaten continuously to death for hours by the disorderly local and uneducated locals.
This issue shows another kind of law and order where everything happened was watched by Sialkot Police the police made a round circle and supported the others to continue the assault the bodies then these bodies were hunged on the head quarters of the so, called rescue 1122. This such incident is a violation of the international human rights.
The peoples responsible should be Prosecuted and should be subjected to the hardest punishment so, that no such incident can take place in the future.
Among UK government plans there is a proposal to shut local Magistrate courts. Locally we have two: Epping and Harlow. Both are well used. Shutting them would put much more pressure on Chelmsford.
Justice should be local, and thus seem to be done in the nearby community. Cutting courts to save money is not on.
The Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) was formed in 1895. It is one of the world's oldest football associations.
In 1997, the GFA applied to FIFA for membership. In 1999, FIFA confirmed that the GFA conformed to the requirements, thus handing the file on to the UEFA. In 2000, UEFA and FIFA conducted a joint inspection of the football related facilities and, in consequence, produced a report stating "The FA of Gibraltar fulfils all requisite statutory conditions for admission to UEFA”.
In August 2000, the report to UEFA leaked to the Spanish media, and in consequence, both the Spanish Government and its political parties started a campaign to prevent the GFA's application from succeeding on purely political grounds. The Spanish objections were solely based on their claim of Sovereignty on Gibraltar. None of their objections were based on any sport criteria.
In December 2000, the Executive Committee of UEFA decided to appoint three independent judges to consider the legality and validity of the Spanish claims. The independent legal panel issued a report on August 2001 rejecting the Spanish objections and stating "the GFA is entitled to provisional admission as a member of UEFA”.
The applying continues and you can carry on reading on this link... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibraltar_Football_Association
Please read as there is a lot more information there.
Omar Khadr is a 23 year old Canadian national who has been held in Guantanamo since he was captured 8 years ago, when he was only 15 years old. If his case goes to trial as scheduled, he will be the first child soldier to be tried since Nuremberg. His trial will also be the first military commission at Guantánamo Bay under the Obama administration.
Mr. Khadr has slammed the military commission as a “sham process” and has tried to fire his American military lawyers in protest, though has now agreed to allow them to represent him. Charges against him include having killed a US soldier with a grenade in Afghanistan when he was 15. The evidence against him is considered to be tenuous at best and most countries, and international legal norms and practice, are opposed to bringing child soldiers to trial.
A defence motion will be made before the commission starts to consider whether or not torture was used to obtain evidence in Omar's case. Omar rejected a plea deal that would see him released in 5 years if he admitted to killing the soldier and committing other war crimes at a pre-trial hearing earlier in the month. At an earlier hearing in this case, an interrogator admitted having threatened Mr. Khadr with gang rape and murder to make him comply and confess during interrogations.
It is time that the Obama administration stop violating Omar Khadr's rights and give him the justice he deserves.
It has become clear that judges hands are being tied by sentence guidelines which are set by the sentencing council.
With this in mind and criminals either being let off with suspended sentences or very short sentence, should we not now look at allowing judges to detach themselves from sentencing guidelines where they feel after guidelines the punishment will not fit the crime.
We are all hearing all too often of Criminals being treated unbelievably well to avoid breaching their 'Human Rights'. There are countless instances where the victims are treated worse than the Criminals and the Criminals are being 'Let-off' with a minimal punishment (if any!).
See for instance:
Bitte unterzeichnet/ unterzeichnen Sie unsere Petition gegen die wiederholte Ausstrahlung der Dokumentation „Living with Michael Jackson“ durch den deutschen Nachrichtensender N24.
Diese Dokumentation von Martin Bashir, die bekanntlich wegen der bewussten Diffamierungen zur unberechtigten Anklage gegen Michael Jackson führte, die wiederum 2005 in einen Prozess mündete, wird bereits zum wiederholten Male ausgestrahlt ohne dass unsere unzähligen Proteste dagegen erhört wurden (inzwischen geschieht dies auch verdeckt im Rahmen der „Reportage XXL“).
Wir wollen erreichen, dass N24 anstelle der Dokumentation, bzw. ergänzend, die Gegendarstellung "The Michael Jackson Interview: The Footage You Were Never Meant to See" zeigt.
Wir können es nicht länger erlauben, dass diese Sendung, in der Michael Jackson von Martin Bashir diffamiert und hinterlistig vorgeführt wird, weiterhin gesendet wird.
Mit der Unterzeichnung dieser Petition und dem Schreiben von Protestmails und –briefen könnt Ihr/können Sie uns dabei unterstützen.
Bitte unterzeichnet/unterzeichnen Sie diese Petition, um Gerechtigkeit für Michael Jackson zu erreichen und die Wahrheit zu verbreiten.

Please sign our petition against the documentary “Living with Michael Jackson”, which has been repeatedly broadcasted by the German news channel N24.
This documentary by Martin Bashir, well-known as the defamatory foundation for the unjustified accusations against Michael Jackson which led to the trial of 2005, has been repeatedly broadcasted without responding to our countless protests (meanwhile the documentary is sometimes shown hidden behind the programme “Reportage XXL”).
We want N24 to broadcast in addition to the documentary, or rather instead, the counterstatement “The Michael Jackson Interview: The Footage You Were Never Meant to See”.
We cannot allow any longer, that this film, in which Martin Bashir defames Michael Jackson and makes him look like a fool, is still being shown on TV.
You can support us by signing this petition and by writing critical letters and e-mails to N24.
Please sign this petition to achieve justice for Michael Jackson and spreading the truth about him.
In loving memory of Michael:
There’s nothing that can’t be done, if we raise our voice as one.

The Coalition Government are consulting on a proposal to close the Melton Mowbray Magistrates' Court and to move all cases to Loughborough. This will
Make access to justice for the public more difficult and expensive.
Waste more police time as they will have to travel to Loughborough to give evidence
Cost more in solictors fees as they spend time travelling
Lead to the eventual closure of the county court in Melton
Make reporting of Melton cases more difficult
148. Support CADEN'S LAW
As many of you may or may not know, my cousin's child Caden Rivera was murdered April of 2009. The man who murdered 2yr old Caden has just accepted a plea bargain and will be sentenced to 13yrs in prison. The downside to this is, he will only have to serve 85% of his time before being eligible for parole.
I would like everyone to support my cousin as we are attempting to draft bills to change NJ laws on plea negotiations. The bill will be aimed at this: If a convict accepts a plea bargain for 3rd degree manslaughter or above, they will no longer be able to be offered the opportunity to be eligible for parole. They will need to serve 100% of the time they are sentenced to.
The way I see things, under current law, convicts really have nothing to loose. They can accept a plea bargain, plead guilty and get off in less time then if went to trial. Its almost as if the law works for them, not against them. Well lets change this together. Lets take away the opportunity for parole and force convicts into trial and let them face the max sentences they should receive. God Bless!
In terms of breaking the cycle of offending Perth Children's Court President believes Halo is 'setting the way,' with other Magistrates describing the support plans as ‘the best support plans they have ever seen,’ Julie Nimmo from Foxtel’s NITV asserted during her filming of the organisation that “Halo is Saving lives and that in all my years of journalism I have seen anything else like it.”
So with an almost 100 % success rate why would the City of Cockburn tender against the community and rob them of their quest for sustainability?
It all comes back to control and greed!
After referring teenagers to the program for two years the Council went against the wishes of families and the community and tendered anyway. This violates not only the rights of young people in general but also the rights of Aboriginal people to self determination. In terms of reconciliation this is a terrible step backwards.
The organisation driven and owned by the community feels used, cheated and abused!
I have over 7 pages of evidence that prove Chris Benoit is innocent and was framed. There were tons of police errors and the case was over looked at.
I can not post all the facts on here, due to the fact a few names are mentioned, but I can post them in a document. Please, take a look. Justice for Benoit!
