Report: Israel Occupation Forces, Bahraini Guards Used To Train American Cops Against Domestic Disturbances

Report: Israel Occupation Forces, Bahraini Guards Used To Train American Cops Against Domestic Disturbances | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

According to Police Magazine, a law enforcement trade publication, “Law enforcement agencies responding to…Occupy protesters in northern California credit Urban Shield for their effective teamwork.

”Training alongside the American police departments at Urban Shield was the Yamam, an Israeli Border Police unit that claims to specialize in “counter-terror” operations but is better known for its extra-judicial assassinations of Palestinian militant leaders and long record of repression and abuses in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Urban Shield also featured a unit from the military of Bahrain, which had just crushed a largely non-violent democratic uprising by opening fire on protest camps and arresting wounded demonstrators when they attempted to enter hospitals. While the involvement of Bahraini soldiers in the drills was a novel phenomenon, the presence of quasi-military Israeli police – whose participation in Urban Shield was not reported anywhere in US media – reflected a disturbing but all-too-common feature of the post-9/11 American security landscape.

Colin Powell: Listen to Occupy Wall Street - MJ Lee | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Colin Powell says the Occupy Wall Street protests are “as American as apple pie,” and political leaders need to do more than just “scream” at the demonstrators.

“Demonstrating like this is as American as apple pie. We’ve been marching up and down and demonstrating throughout our history,” the former secretary of state said on CNN Thursday night.

Report: Israeli model underlies militarization of U.S. police | The Raw Story | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

The extreme militarization of American police forces has been brought to public attention by the tactics employed against Occupy protesters, which often appear more appropriate to counter-terrorism operations than to the control of non-violent protest. According to investigative journalist Max Blumenthal, however, the proper term for this ruthless suppression of dissent should be “Israelification.”

U.N. Envoy: U.S. Isn't Protecting Occupy WS Protesters' Rights

U.N. Envoy: U.S. Isn't Protecting Occupy  WS Protesters' Rights | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON -- The United Nations envoy for freedom of expression is drafting an official communication to the U.S. ...

"If I were going to pit a city ordinance against human rights, I would always take human rights," he continued.

La Rue, a longtime Guatemalan human rights activist who has held his U.N. post for three years, said it's clear to him that the protesters have a right to occupy public spaces "as long as that doesn't severely affect the rights of others."

In moments of crisis, governments often default to a forceful response instead of a dialogue, he said -- but that's a mistake.

"Citizens have the right to dissent with the authorities, and there's no need to use public force to silence that dissension," he said.

"One of the principles is proportionality," La Rue said. "The use of police force is legitimate to maintain public order -- but there has to be a danger of real harm, a clear and present danger. And second, there has to be a proportionality of the force employed to prevent a real danger."

Daily Kos: Occupy the future or be occupied

Daily Kos: Occupy the future or be occupied | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

...As many predicted, those who stand to lose if this nation begins to live up to its stated and increasingly mythical ideals of freedom and democracy and fairness and justice would not let this go on forever. It amused them. Then it annoyed them. Then they got scared. Then the truncheons were swung.

The Occupy movement is entering a new phase, but it is not going away. When the powers that be come to terms with that reality, their responses will degenerate even further, and it remains incumbent upon all who want the Occupy movement to succeed that the movement itself remain non-violent, and that one of its prime goals be to attract and inspire ever greater numbers of supporters. The polls continue to show strong support for the economic goals of the Occupy movement, even as the politicians continue to wage their Shock Doctrine class warfare, and the movement must consider whether each planned action will inspire or alienate potential allies in the wider public. This is a time for determination, for principle and for clarity. The truth and the facts remain on the side of the Occupy movement, and supporters of the movement must ensure that they remain so. ...

AMAZING SPEECH BY AN AMERICAN WAR VETERAN

THIS IS ABOUT ALOT MORE THAN IRAQ!

 

Consider sharing this video with your friends and acquaintances. Thank you.

 

Our real enemies are not those living in a distant land whose names or policies we don't understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it's profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it's profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it's profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it's profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousands away. They are right here in front of us
