Canada Is Arming the World’s Bullies
https://jacobin.com/2024/07/canada-arms-defense-industry-authoritarianism

Canada’s arms export data reveal a disturbing trend: billions in military goods flowing to authoritarian governments accused of human rights abuses. Global autocracies now outnumber Democracies, and Canada appears happy to sell arms to the highest bidder.

Peaceful protest is a powerful and public way for people to make their voices heard. It has long been a vital means for advancing human rights. However, in #Europe, the right of peaceful assembly is increasingly coming under attack. This report documents an array of trends and patterns of #humanRights violations that curtail this right, and contains detailed recommendations for states to ensure that everyone’s right to protest is protected, respected and fulfilled.

#Syria: How the UN #Envoy can salvage a sinking ship

As with the Constitutional Committee, #Assad did not engage and #Pedersen again turned to #Moscow for help while simultaneously chasing Western donors for ever more concessions to be presented to #Damascus. This too did not work.

Not that we, of all people, believe in the German rule of law. It is common practice that deportations, for example, are usually carried out in exactly the same way in order to prevent any possible legal recourse. However, the fact that institutions such as the Public Prosecutor General’s Office in #Berlin explicitly ignore decisions by the Federal Constitutional Court and deliberately act contrary to them is something of a novelty in Germany. This says a lot about the political will to repress and the constitution of some German authorities.

@laura’s talk Small Technology: Building Tech That Respects Our Rights from @btconf, now with transcript.

https://beyondtellerrand.com/events/dusseldorf-2024/speakers/laura-kalbag

“We’ve been taught surveillance is the only way we can create modern technology, and that our personal information is merely used to improve our experiences. Instead, we see data about us being used to perpetuate systems of oppression and discrimination… We can do better.”

#Trump spreads #violent rhetoric by suggesting migrants should be pitted in fights for entertainment.

During a speech to #Christian #conservatives on Sat afternoon, & AGAIN at a rally in Philadelphia that evening, Trump claimed he told his friend Dana White, pres of the UFC, that he should start a spinoff competition featuring migrants, as part of his riff on restricting #immigration.

Wars drive number of forcibly displaced people to record high, UN says


source: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/politics/un-war-gaza-ukraine-refugees-b2561917.html

The number stood at 117.3 million at the end of 2023 – with the UN’s #refugee agency saying it could reach 120 million in the near future


#news #refugees #humanrights #war #terror #problem


A great many people reaching our shores and crossing our borders are in search of safety from the horrors of war and persecution.
They deserve better than so many of them get.

Stronger #HumanRights protection for refugees is urgently needed.

#Pentagon ran secret anti-vax campaign to undermine #China during #pandemic


Source: https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-covid-propaganda/

The clandestine #operation has not been previously reported. It aimed to sow doubt about the safety and efficacy of vaccines and other life-saving aid that was being supplied by China, a Reuters investigation found. Through phony internet accounts meant to impersonate Filipinos, the military’s propaganda efforts morphed into an anti-vax campaign. Social media posts decried the quality of face masks, test kits and the first vaccine that would become available in the #Philippines – China’s Sinovac inoculation.
