first_imgWW reproduces this statement from an important anti-imperialist organization in India.The All India Anti-imperialist Forum (AIAIF) is viewing with great concern the signing of the Logistic Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) between India and USA, which will allow mutual use of military bases, though both parties are circumspect about its wider implication, promptly qualifying its ambit by mentioning its application on a case-by-case basis.Through signing this agreement the BJP-led Government, serving the Indian imperialist bourgeoisie, is aligning itself with USA to further the Indian imperialist bourgeois class interest; it has in fact inched closer toward a defense agreement.The ruling imperialist bourgeoisie of India has since long cherished a dream to appear as a powerful military power in the Asian region to boost its economic engine and to this end it has anchored with USA. Similarly USA has a strategic interest to augment its presence in the Pacific region to counter the rise of China.  The U.S. Navy has a plan to deploy 60% of its surface ships in this region.The USA wants to prop up India to meet a rising China, and it has already emerged as India’s second biggest supplier of defense equipment. The Agreement will also give the USA the opportunity to use the Indian bases if the situation develops for launching military attacks in Afghanistan and Central Asia as well as Middle East and East and Southeast Asia.Both the countries’ industrial-military-bureaucratic complex, being faced with ever-deepening recession pervading the entire globe, with no hope of its ending, has opted for this agreement to stimulate the economy through militarization. It has nothing to serve the interest of the toiling millions of our country.In the name of national interest and progress, a smoke-screen to befool the common people, this pact will serve the industrial-military-bureaucratic  complex of our country and they have no qualms to sell the integrity and sovereignty of the country to further their interest. We appeal to the people of India to build up powerful, united protest movements against the anti-people Logistic Exchange Memorandum of Agreement.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgCitizens Petition to Chinese Government Launched at Change.Org by Archbishop Tutu (Washington, D.C. – New York – Paris – London – Brussels – Geneva) Today, 134 Nobel Laureates across all six Nobel disciplines wrote to incoming Chinese President Xi Jinping, urginghim to immediately and unconditionally release Liu Xiaobo and his wife Liu Xia. Liu Xia has been under house arrest since shortly after the Norwegian Nobel Committee announced her husband’s selection as the Peace Prize Laureate for 2010. The letter was released by the International Committee for Liu Xiaobo, which is comprised of six Nobel Peace Prize Laureates and 15 nongovernmental organizations. The Nobel Laureates wrote: Across all disciplines, the distinguishing feature which led to our recognition as Nobel Laureates is that we have embraced the power of our intellectual freedom and creative inspiration to do our part to advance the human condition.No government can restrict freedom of thought and association without having a negativeeffect on such important human innovation.Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu (Peace 1984) and Sir Richard Roberts (Physiology or Medicine1993) are leading this initiative with the support of Freedom Now, which serves as internationalcounsel to both Liu Xiaobo and his wife. The letter from Nobel Laureates sends a powerfulmessage to the Chinese government that releasing Liu Xiaobo and Liu Xia will send a positivesignal about the new leadership’s priorities and that their ongoing detention hinders China’sdevelopment and damages its international stature:“I hope that the Chinese authorities appreciate the diversity of extraordinary achievementrepresented by the Nobel Laureates who have written to them today,” said Archbishop Tutu. “Oureffort is not to embarrass China but rather to implore the government to take a different approachthat would help China develop in the best way for all its people,” he noted. “By releasing LiuXiaobo and Liu Xia, China can demonstrate its strength and show that it is not fearful of those who seek dialogue about the most effective ways to reform its government,” added Richard Roberts.In addition to launching this letter today, Archbishop Tutu, on behalf of his fellow Laureates,launched a global citizen petition drive to the incoming Chinese President urging Liu Xiaobo andLiu Xia’s immediate release.For further information, please contact:- Jared Genser, Freedom Now and International Counsel to Liu Xiaobo and Liu Xia (English):[email protected], +1-202-320-4135- Yang Jianli, Initiatives for China (Mandarin, English): [email protected], +1-857-472-9039- Marie Holzman, China Solidarity (French, Mandarin): [email protected], +33-630-809-281- Thor Halvorssen, Human Rights Foundation (Spanish, English):[email protected], +1-212-664-8464- Alain Bouc, Human Rights League (French): [email protected], +33 1 42 57 34 66- Christine Laroque, ACAT-France (French, English): [email protected], +33-140-4074-09 China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures The International Committee for Liu Xiaobo is composed of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Dr. Shirin Ebadi, Ms. Tawakkol Karman, Ms. MaireadMaguire, Archbishop Desmond M.

To that end, we respectfully urge you to release Dr. Liu Xiaobo, the world’s only imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and his wife, Liu Xia.On December 25, 2009, your government sentenced Dr. Liu, a highly respected intellectual anddemocracy advocate, to 11 years in prison for “inciting subversion.” The charges were based on hispolitical essays and co-authorship of “Charter 08,” which called for peaceful political reform in Chinabased on the principles of human rights, freedom, and democracy. Shortly after the Norwegian NobelCommittee awarded Dr. Liu its Peace Prize, the government placed Liu Xia under house arrest, where she remains cut off from the outside world two years later without charge or the benefit of any legal process.In response to the continued detentions of Dr. Liu and Liu Xia, the United Nations Working Group onArbitrary Detention, an independent and impartial body of experts, issued Opinions No. 15-16/2011,finding their detentions to be in violation of international law; however, despite this finding their casesremain unresolved.Across all disciplines, the distinguishing feature which led to our recognition as Nobel Laureates is that we have embraced the power of our intellectual freedom and creative inspiration to do our part to advance the human condition. No government can restrict freedom of thought and association without having a negative effect on such important human innovation. Indeed, we Laureates are distressed that your government continues to block access to the main Nobel Prize web site ( former Chinese President Hu Jintao’s state visit to the United States in 2011, he recognized that “a lot still needs to be done in China on human rights.” While we welcome such honest assessments, we hope that China’s new political leadership will move past merely recognizing the problem and seize this important opportunity to take concrete steps towards embracing the fundamental rights of all Chinese citizens. An essential first step is the immediate and unconditional release of Dr. Liu Xiaobo and his wife Liu Xia.Sincerely,134 Nobel Prize Laureates( Name, Category, Prize Year )Peter Agre Chemistry 2003Thomas R.

first_img Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire June 2, 2021 Find out more In a letter to Pakistan’s Minister of Information, Nisar A. Memon, Reporters sans frontières (Reporters Without Borders – RSF) has denounced the police attack on more than twenty-five journalists as they left a meeting organised by President Pervez Musharraf in Faisalabad. “At the start of the referendum campaign, the use of such methods with regard to the press does not augur well for the climate in which this election – a crucial one for Pakistan – is to take place,” states Robert Ménard, General Secretary of RSF. The organisation for press freedom urged the Minister of Information to do his utmost to ensure that the inquiry launched by the President will be completed and that those responsible for such brutality will be punished. According to information received by RSF, at least 25 journalists were injured, three seriously, on 14 April 2002 as they left President Musharraf’s campaign meeting held in Faisalabad (in the Punjab province in the East of the country). The Governer of the province, Khalid Maqbool, had opened the meeting, which took place in the Iqbal Stadium, with a diatribe against the Pakistani press. Newspapermen were guilty in his view of “committing contempt of the public by publishing fake reports on attendance”, notably concerning the numbers of people attending the President’s meeting in Lahore. The Governor had incited the crowd to vent their disapproval of the journalists present, in an attempt to denounce the “misreporting and irresponsible attitude of the mediamen”. The journalists, gathered together in the area reserved for the press, left the meeting shouting anti-government slogans, and decided to organise a protest march. They were booed by the crowd as they left the building. At this point, according to one witness, the district chief of police, Arshad Dogar, ordered the policemen present to charge the group of reporters. Someone in authority, states this same witness, had ordered the police to “do something to make the journalists pay for their attempted boycott”. More than 25 journalists were clubbed by police using truncheons. A.R.

However, the hospitals have been ordered by the authorities not to deliver medical certificates, which are required if FIRs (First Information Reports) are to be filed, to journalists who ask for them.In his statement made the same day, the Minister of Information, Nisar A. Memon, said that President Musharraf was taking the incident very seriously and had immediately launched an inquiry so as to punish “those police officers who had infringed the law”.
