French Draft Resolution on Syria Reflects its Longing for its Colonial History in Africa*

French Draft Resolution on Syria Reflects its Longing for its Colonial History in Africa*

 

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the U.N. Bashar al-Jaafari stressed that foiling the Russian draft resolution at the U.N. Security Council reaffirms the absence of the political will to fight terrorism and reach a political solution to the crisis among those who oppose the resolution in a time when the French resolution reflects France’s longing to its black colonial past and exposes it attempts to undermine the Syrian state.

In a speech at a Security Council session on Saturday, al-Jaafari added that the representatives of the colonial powers lost their minds and they proved that they have bad colonial intentions towards Syria and that their diplomacy is not a diplomacy of dialogue and solving conflicts through peaceful means.

He congratulated Russia for heading the Security Council in the current month in a time when the world is witnessing dangerous and serious challenges due to the wrong policies adopted by some countries including some of the Security Council’s permanent member states which seek to implement agendas that contradict the goals and principles of the U.N. Charter.

He expressed Syria’s strong condemnation of the coward terrorist attack which targeted the Russian Embassy in Damascus few days ago, expressing regret that the draft resolution proposed by the Russian delegation was not adopted.

The Permanent Representative  added that the French draft resolution was very clear in its goals and it reflects the longing of France to its black colonial past as it thought that igniting the so-called “crisis in Syria” will give it a golden chance to restore its colonial influence.

Al-Jaafari indicated that the French representative practiced the policy of trusteeship on the Syrian people in his statement as he still dreams that he represents a colonial power that can steal the right of speaking on behalf of the Syrian people at the Security Council, but the French politicians should feel shame over what they did to Libya and the Libyan people.

He added that the massacre which is taking place in Syria is committed by foreign mercenary terrorists who are implementing agendas of foreign intelligences and they are financed by the Saudi and Qatari regimes and backed by Turkey.

Al-Jaafari said that the terms used by the French draft resolution proved again the hostile intentions of the successive French governments towards Syria which seek to undermine the Syrian state as a whole and not just the government, pointing out that the draft resolution clearly demands stopping the operations launched by the Syrian Arab army against terrorists.

He asserted that whenever the Syrian army and its allies achieve advances in facing the terrorist groups, on top “Jabhat al-Nusra”, some of the Security Council’s well-known member states call for holding sessions or propose draft resolutions to help the terrorists and to protect them from their inevitable fate.

Al-Jaafari added “We wished that the unprecedented frantic efforts exerted by France for adopting the draft resolution which it proposed were like the Russian resolution that comes in the interest of finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria under a Syrian leadership and without any foreign interference.”

He  asserted that the United States, France and Britain, since six years, have been organizing  false diplomatic and political media campaigns to show that what is happening  in Syria is a confrontation between the  “armed opposition” which they describe it as ” moderate” and the governmental forces which  they accuse it of committing war crimes paying no heed that  its policies endangered the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in Syria.

Commenting on some allegations of  targeting the hospitals, al-Jaafari said that terrorists in eastern Aleppo transformed the most prominent optometry hospital in the Middle East to a base of operations for them.

Al- Jaafari added that it has become unequivocally clear that the programs of support provided by the United States and its allies from the Arab and regional countries to what it called the “moderate opposition” were and still serve Jabhat al-Nusra, ISIS and other terrorist organizations.

He noted that there are 1800 emails deleted from the mail of the former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, some of which were containing details of weapons’ shipments transported from Libya across Turkey to the terrorist armed groups in Syria upon an official decision from the U.S. administration.

Syria’s Representative pointed out that the U.S. Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity has recently disclosed that the Pentagon paid USD 540 million to a British public relations and marketing company called Bell Pottinger to create propagandas hostile to the Syrian government through fabricating YouTube videos, photos and films.

He highlighted that the U.S. formed an alliance outside the framework of the international legitimacy under the pretext of fighting ISIS and the terrorist organizations, but the truths on the ground proved that ISIS, after the establishment of this alliance, expanded its control, affirming that the reason behind this is that the coalition is un-serious in fighting terrorism.

Al-Jaafari continued to say that the aircraft of this alliance killed hundreds of Syrian civilians and military personnel and destroyed many economic facilities and the infrastructures as it has provided the terrorist organizations with the weapons to spread more chaos and corruption in the country.

Al-Jaafari added that it has become a need to decode the code of the U.S.-led alliance’s strategy that is based on repetition of mistakes which proves that it is intentional and systematic just like what happened when the alliance aircrafts targeted Syrian military sites in Deir Ezzor threatening the lives of hundreds of thousands of Syrian civilians.

He noted that the same states were bold enough to demand safe humanitarian corridors for terrorists, asking these states: Have the US, Britain and France opened safe humanitarian corridors to protect the moderate al-Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan or those who committed the massacres of Charlie Hebdo, Bataclan theater, Nice, California, Boston, Chicago, New York and London? And why not?

Al-Jaafari stresses the Syrian government’s full cooperation with the UN and its specialized agencies and affiliated organizations to implement the monthly response plan, adding that the practices of the armed terrorist groups and their allies prevent the full implementation of humanitarian response plans.

He referred to the latest of terrorists’ attacks which targeted a humanitarian convoy in Aleppo Countryside on the 19th of September 2016 causing the death of several Syrian civilians, volunteers and SARC workers, noting that the Syrian government has launched an investigation into the attack.

Today’s meeting is to discuss the current deteriorating situation in the eastern areas of Aleppo since the U.S. failed to live up to its commitments and obligations under the cessation of hostilities and the terrorist groups continued to breach the agreement and launch attacks, said al-Jaafari, stating that the terrorist killed 157 Syrian soldiers and 300 civilians in eastern Aleppo.

He stressed Syria’s commitment to combat terrorism in parallel with its efforts to reach a political solution through Syrian-Syrian dialogue to decide the future of the country without any foreign intervention.

In response to New Zealand Permanent Representative to the U.N., al-Jaafari said that the Syrian government has submitted 500 letters on the state-sponsored international terrorism, among which 60 letters related to the use of chemical weapons by terrorists in Syria.

“Because we, in Syria, are victims of misinformation and misunderstanding, our role as diplomats is to dispel misinformation rather than to lie to each other,” he concluded.

1,000s March for Peace, against NATO in Berlin*

Thousands of anti-war demonstrators came out for a rally in Berlin over the weekend to protest the growing militarization of German policies and NATO’s confrontation with Russia over Syria.

On Saturday, protesters marched from Alexanderplatz to the Brandenburg Gate, where the demonstration continued with several speeches. German police estimated the number of participants at over 5,000, while the organizers said between 6,000 and 8,000 showed up.

Protesters said resources wasted on war would be better spent making life better for the people, demanding that Berlin scale down its military budget, withdraw its troops from all foreign missions, and stop selling arms to other governments.

“Our point of view is let’s come back to a politics of cooperation, dialogue and negotiations, we need these politics, not only in Syria and Ukraine, but all over the world in many, many countries,” one protester named Reiner Braun told Ruptly.

“The German government is definitely going the wrong way. Sanctions are not helpful; confrontation are not helpful; German troops in Poland and Ukraine are not helpful, so we are calling for deep change of the German politics against Russia,” he added.

The “Lay Down Your Arms” demonstration was organized by left-wing forces, which distanced themselves from right-wing groups for the latest event.

Left Party MP Sahra Wagenknecht, who was the key speaker at the protest, criticized the continued violence in Syria and the latest collapse of cooperation between Russia and the U.S., which has left the prospect of a peaceful resolution of the five-year-long conflict as distant as ever.

#Staygrounded Action In London Makes Airports New Focal Point for Social Justice*

#Staygrounded Action In London Makes Airports New Focal Point for Social Justice*

By Steve Rushton

 

A frequent flyer busy on her cellphone steps over and ignores the bodies on the floor as she checks in for a Saturday flight at Heathrow Airport.

This was part of a “die in” at the London airport, the busiest in Europe. The flash mob, coordinated on October 1 by the group Reclaim the Power, also staged a frequent flyer check-in for the 1%. It made the point that the planned expansion of one of London’s airports — the decision whether it will be Heathrow or Gatwick is expected later this month – is being driven by a cabal of mostly wealthy passengers.

In the U.K., 70% of flights are taken by 15% of the population, a demographic that often has second homes or salaries above £115,000. In other words, they represent the 1%.

Across the globe, only 5% of the population has ever flown. Aviation is also the fastest growing sector of carbon emissions worldwide. These emissions are even more dangerous as a large proportion are emitted at altitude, which magnifies their impact.

Simultaneous to the die-in, a critical mass cycle ride occupied the roads around Heathrow on Saturday, with protesters dressed in red. The cyclists made the point that airport expansion was another “red line” we cannot go beyond to tackle climate change.

The hundreds on bikes also visited Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre to protest the U.K. government’s asylum policies. The protest highlighted how many people in immigration detention have fled their homes as a result of climate change – whether driven by oil-caused wars, famines, droughts or other knock-on effects. During the die-in inside the airport, protesters spoke on behalf of those people worst hit by climate change in the Global South.

 

Airport Protests in a Global Context

The #Staygrounded action at Heathrow formed part of a global day of action, connected to the Zone to Defend (ZAD) in France fighting to retain an ancient forest, and a Mexican protest against an airport that caused the massacre of local farmers. There were further actions in Turkey and Austria, all timed to coincide with the U.N. International Civil Aviation Organization meeting in Montreal. As yet, aviation emissions are not included within carbon targets.

The actions follow a groundswell of demonstrations focusing on air travel in Britain and beyond. The plan to expand Heathrow has faced broad and sustained opposition from local campaigns working alongside environmental ones. Last year, climate activists closed a runway with a tripod and lock-on. These 13 campaigners were threatened with prison sentences, which were only avoided due to a massive public backlash.

In September, Black Lives Matter U.K. shut down the City of London Airport runway to make the point that climate change disproportionally hits black communities, both on a local and global level.

The London borough of Newham, which surrounds City Airport, is largely composed of black communities who suffer life-threateningly low air quality from the planes. The pattern of heavy pollution nearest communities of color is repeated worldwide. Oil and other carbon intensive industries often contradict the principle that Black Lives Matter. Clear examples include the many global regions devastated by oil extraction, where land has been stolen from communities of color, and destroyed; wars predominantly caused by oil imperialism; and the climate pollution that worst impacts the Global South.

Black Lives Matter U.K. highlights that seven out of 10 countries worst impacted by climate change are in sub-Saharan Africa, and by 2050 there will be 200 million climate refugees globally.

Last weekend’s City Airport action was Black Lives Matter U.K.’s second airport demonstration. On Aug. 5, the group blocked key roads leading to Heathrow and Birmingham airports, as well as major transport connections across the country, demanding Britain stop the racist deaths in police custody and the racist policing of borders.

A striking feature about the Black Lives Matter action, and the latest one at Heathrow, is how environmental issues are being connected with racism and inequality.

“I feel like it is long overdue. A growing part of the climate movement has been talking and thinking about climate justice,” protester Sheila Menon tells Occupy.com.

Menon is one of the Heathrow 13, and is a second generation British Asian engaged with Reclaim the Power. The concept of climate justice, she says, asserts that those who profited from climate change – the richest nations and individuals – should be held responsible for its devastating consequences.

As Black Lives Matter U.K. explains:

“Black people are the first to die, not the first to fly, in this racist climate crisis.”

Even though the climate movement is slowly changing and becoming more intersectional, Menon tells me it is still predominantly white.

“When I go to a climate camp, I can count the number of black people on one hand,” she says. For her, the climate movement needs to connect even further with other social justice causes and listen to find out what other people’s issue are.

“Climate is interrelated to every issue, whether it is food sovereignty, land rights, fuel prices, wealth distribution, resources, wars, migration. It affects everything. Climate change will be the biggest cause of all social unrest we are watching unfold before our eyes,” she adds. “It is not solely about floods or weather patterns. It is about people being uprooted because the land is unlivable, or the crops are failing.”

Widening the climate movement to include a range of other issues often faces resistance from protesters, but she asserts this shouldn’t be the case.

“People think it will dilute the movement’s energy and resources. But it is essential to understand others issues and create real solidarity. The climate movement needs to branch out, as climate change is too abstract. Nobody can get their head around it. Even I cannot get my head around what a 2 degree rise in global temperatures means, until I see a scientific model.”

For Menon, the climate movement instead needs to broaden itself in the way that economic inequality has become a core part of every social justice campaign. She points out that today it is widely understood that policies favoring the 1% are a root cause of the world’s systemic problems. The weekend actions in London, she says, showed that movements can garner from a deeper intersectional understanding – because there is no environmental justice without social justice, and vice versa.

The Devastating Facts About Hurricane Matthew in Haiti Versus The Media’s ‘Poetic Truth’*

The Devastating  Facts About Hurricane Matthew in Haiti Versus The Media’s ‘Poetic Truth’*

Matthew barrelled through the Caribbean Sea between Haiti and Cuba and slammed into Haiti as a Category 4 Hurricane during the night of Monday to Tuesday, October 3-4, 2016. The hurricane made its first landfall on the westernmost tip of Haiti, near the town of Tiburon, in the southern peninsula, battering the area with the storm’s fiercest winds, waves, and rains.

All of Haiti, however, suffered hurricane-force winds and floods that destroyed crops and swept away much of the livestock.

Furthermore, violent surges of seawater crashed into most of Haiti’s cities, which line the coasts. Even the Dominican Republic, on the eastern side of Hispaniola, well away from the hurricane’s center was so strongly affected by floods and winds that it lost four people.

On Tuesday morning, Haiti’s Pwoteksyon Sivil reported five deaths from the Hurricane, together with the circumstances of each death; later the same day, the number rose to 23.

To those who had been getting their news directly from Haiti, these low, albeit tragic, casualty rates were not surprising, even for the vulnerable cities of Port-au-Prince and Leogane, which had not been rebuilt after the earthquake and hosted about 55,000 homeless people.

For more than 48 hours before the hurricane, Haiti’s presidential candidates for the now-postponed elections of Sunday, October 9, had tried to outdo each other at informing the public of the dangers of the hurricane and directing people to places of safety. The country’s interim President, Jocelerme Privert, made a televised address in which he admonished the population to move away from the coasts.

“My fellow citizens, do not be stubborn, do not say ‘God is good and will take care of you.’ You must evacuate the endangered areas.”

He further called on Haitians to help each other. Even prisoners were moved to safety this time. Haitians should take a bow for the lives that were saved by their conduct.

 

None of this news appeared in the Western press, because it does not deal in facts but in poetic truth, which in this case requires the supposed poorest-of-the-poor to perish by the hundreds, if not by the thousands, if they are not helped by foreign humanitarians.

Once the United States military and journalists began to assess the hurricane’s damage by some counting system of their own invention, the number of Haitian casualties skyrocketed, and there were no longer any reports of how the dead met their fates. Indeed, the number of the Haitian dead from Hurricane Matthew has doubled approximately every 12 hours since Tuesday morning and is now estimated to be 800. At this rate, all of Haiti’s population should be dead in about a week.

 

All joking aside, these casualty counts should be examined carefully and with great skepticism. For one, there no longer appears to be a distinction between the missing and the dead.

For example, the children from a collapsed orphanage are presumed to have died, but no evidence of their deaths has been offered. Such disappearances of children during disasters are often due to human trafficking, and the irresponsible reporters who eagerly repeat these numbers should consider that they might be serving as the unwitting accomplices of criminals. The new numbers of the dead are blamed on the recently discovered damage to Haiti’s southwestern peninsula (Grand Anse, South and Nippes departments), which had been cut off from the rest of the country due to the collapse of a bridge on Route National No. 2 in the city of Petit Goave.

 

After surveying all the country, the Pwoteksyon Sivil revised its counts for Haiti’s various departments (states) on Thursday, October 6, to a disastrous 108 deaths: 38 deaths in Grand Anse; 26 in the South; 34 in the West; 1 in the Northwest; 3 in the Artibonite; 3 in Nippes; and 3 in the Southwest. These new counts by Haitians, where the number of deaths in the Grand Anse and South departments are similar to those of the West department, imply casualty rates per capita more than 10 times higher for Grand Anse and more than 5 times higher for the South than for the West.

This rings truer than the inflated numbers from the English-language media. One would not expect the Grand Anse and the South alone to have hundreds of casualties simply because they were hit hardest by the storm. First, these areas have not suffered any earthquake damage. Secondly, they lacked a significant population of internally displaced people. Finally, the Grand Anse and South departments, in Haiti’s southwest, have only 5 and 8%, respectively, of Haiti’s population, compared to the West department, which includes the capital city of Port-au-Prince with more than 40% of the population.

The numbers of deaths were revised on October 8 to look more horrific, but they are no longer credible with regard to the casualty rates per capita for Grand Anse and the South, compared to the West. It is in the interest of the occupying powers to pressure Haiti to exaggerate the human and material costs of the hurricane. Already, the interim government has been forced to delay sin die the non-fraudulent presidential and legislative elections, which Haitians had themselves financed and for which they had fought so long and hard. There is also the expected gold rush. After the earthquake of 2010, for example, more than 90 percent of the aid funds were laundered through Haiti and into the pockets of politically connected businessmen from the so-called donor countries.

From what one can gather of the reports from the Miami Herald, Reuters, New York Times, The Guardian, and especially the BBC News, they appear to be on a campaign to rehabilitate the non-governmental organizations (NGO) that have been discredited by their conduct after Haiti’s earthquake of 2010. The fear that these NGOs might return has been described by journalist Kim Ives.

The United Nations occupying force, which has twice introduced cholera in Haiti, is predicting yet more cholera. The U.N. is scheduled to leave the country in six months. Nevertheless it is casting itself as an expert on the eradication of cholera epidemics, promoting useless cholera vaccines through articles sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in newspapers like The Guardian, and plotting to stay. At this juncture, it is absolutely critical for the Haitian government to take charge of all emergency water distribution and make sure the water is safe to drink.

After all, if you control the water that people drink, you control cholera, and there is far too much money to be made in a massive cholera epidemic.

 

The Red Cross, which has never showed much for the nearly $500 million in donations it collected within a year of the earthquake, is again promising relief to Haitians. This charity claimed that it spent about 5% of its earthquake funds on 700 homes, which turned out to be only a scandalous 6 houses on closer inspection. To account for the rest of the money, it has made vague claims of building more than 100,000 shelters, signing agreements to spend about one half of its funds, giving away tens of millions of dollars worth of food, and helping more than 4.5 million Haitians, nearly one half of the entire population, get back on their feet. How? By giving them golden slippers?

Evidently it does not trouble some news agencies that none of the Red Cross’ claims is demonstrable. A BBC report on Friday, October 7, which trumpeted that 800 Haitians had died from Hurricane Matthew, turned out to be a carrier for a thinly wrapped call for donations to the Red Cross.

“The Red Cross has launched an emergency appeal for $6.9m (£5.6m) ‘to provide medical, shelter, water and sanitation assistance to 50,000 people,’” the article announced.

The Miami Herald, for its part, reported 300 deaths and informed its readers:

“Obama, in his remarks on Haiti Friday, also asked Americans to help by contributing to the Red Cross and other philanthropic organizations.” Even after keeping its manager and CEO in six-figure salaries for years, the Red Cross should still have more than enough in its interest-bearing accounts to assist the victims of Hurricane Matthew. Give it nothing.

 

On October 4, Haiti’s Interim Prime Minister, Enex Jean Charles called for all aid to the country from any donor or partner, national or international, to be channeled through the Permanent National Office for Risk and Disaster Relief (Secrétariat Permanent National de Gestion des Risques et des Désastres, SNGRD). It is almost certain that the next elected government will make a similar call. Hang on to your wallets. Give nothing to any organization until it makes clear that it will abide by the wishes of Haitians.

The Western press, which so relishes the sight of dead and disconsolate Haitians, has so far thankfully offered us nothing of this, except for aerial images of the physical devastation of southwest Haiti and one highly republished photograph of two men carrying a coffin. Where are all the dead Haitians? Were they mostly hit by falling trees and flying roof tiles, overwhelmed by mudslides, drowned in their homes, or swept to sea on giant waves or along streets that had turned into rapids? To my knowledge, Cuba is the only country that reports the circumstances of the deaths of all its hurricane casualties, together with their names, gender, and age. It is no doubt this systematic collection of correct information about hurricane deaths that has made Cuba the safest place to be during such storms. Accurate hurricane statistics also help to identify irregularities and protect the vulnerable from criminal elements. But more than anything, the naming of the dead, the refusal to let people die as nameless as livestock, is a necessary show of respect.

A screenshot of the story on the Independent falsely attributing the death of Mireille Hindoyan to Syrian Army shelling.

A prominent mainstream British newspaper blamed the Syrian government for the recent death of a competitive swimmer in Aleppo, despite evidence that the shelling which took her life was launched by Western-backed rebel forces.

In a report for the Independent published on Sunday, Katie Forster appeared to blame Syrian government forces for the deaths of Mirielle Hindoyan, a university student and competitive swimmer, and her 12-year-old brother, Arman, both of whom died during intense shelling in the contested city of Aleppo on Friday.

The siblings’ deaths “came after medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said there had been a ‘bloodbath’ in Aleppo amid a sustained assault on the city by pro-Assad forces backed by Russian warplanes,” Forster reported.

As her source, Forster cited a Sept. 30 report by Aleppo-based Armenian news outlet Kantsasar, and a Facebook post on an Armenian Youth Association page confirming Mirielle Hindoyan’s death. But media analysts and peace activists soon took to social media to correct the record, noting that Kantsasar actually blamed rebel forces for the attack. Ben Norton, a politics staff writer at Salon, was one of several journalists who tweeted about the error…

Alison Meuse, a reporter for NPR based in Beirut, also suggested the Independent’s report reflects a mainstream media bias guiding reporting on the Syrian civil war.

As of Wednesday morning, no correction had been posted on the article. Instead, the report was modified, without fanfare or apology, to reflect the controversy. Journalist Nour Samaha noted:

With both Democrats and Republicans calling for increased Western military intervention in Syria, a growing number of mainstream media outlets are promoting the cause of war, particularly through selective reporting on the siege of Aleppo.

The media tends to suggest that the entire city of Aleppo is a war zone besieged by the Syrian government, while it is actually divided into two enclaves, eastern and western Aleppo. Vanessa Beeley, an independent journalist who traveled to Aleppo in August, wrote for MintPress News on Sept. 20:

The east is occupied by a number of groups backed by the United States, NATO and their allies in the Gulf, like Saudi Arabia, and Israel. Civilians in the government-held area of western Aleppo describe these groups broadly as ‘terrorists,’ often without noting any specific group.”

Over 1.5 million civilians live in western Aleppo, which is controlled by the Syrian government, while about 200,000 people live in eastern Aleppo, which is occupied by 50,000 rebels and their families, Beeley reported, citing figures provided by the Aleppo Medical Association.

Beeley also noted that the media ignores the West’s role in creating Aleppo’s humanitarian crisis in their rush to blame Assad for the civil war:

“In most Western media reports, little mention is made of this division of Aleppo which was created by the incursion of factions of armed insurgents (or, as the mainstream media and U.S. government call them, ‘moderate rebels’) which drove hordes of civilians out of the eastern parts of the city into the safety of the Syrian government-held western area.”
