Charges dropped against high flying Trans Mountain protestors
National Observer 09/10/2018 - Twelve anti-pipeline daredevils that rappelled from Vancouver’s Ironworkers’ Bridge in July and flew large flags protesting Trans Mountain have been told they will not be charged. Greenpeace announced that crown counsel had advised the organization of the decision. “We’re glad to hear the news that the charges against myself and the 11 other activists that participated in the Trans Mountain tanker blockade have been dropped. With that said it’s atrocious that the government continues to prosecute and send people to jail for standing up against a project that the Federal Court of Appeal found lacks proper approval,” said  Farid Iskander  in a statement circulated by Greenpeace. Iskander is a former volunteer for Alberta Premier Rachel Notley. The protesters started their airborne blockade on July 3, preventing an oil tanker from leaving the Westridge terminal in Burnaby, before police moved in and arrested them the next day. Greenpeace climate campaigner Mike Hudema said the recent climate report compiled by scientists worldwide provided even more support to the protestors actions. The report found that there is barely a decade left to  avert catastrophe. “We took this action because we know that in an era of climate crisis and supposed reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, we cannot afford to build a pipeline that lacks Indigenous consent and flies in the face of our international climate commitments especially given yesterday’s  dire IPCC report .” Read more - Lire plus

New book alleges that Canadian police favor mining interests over indigenous peoples
American Magazine 03/10/2018 - In late 2012, a grass-roots [movement] in Canada called  Idle No More  brought injustices faced by  indigenous communities  into the public eye, first through flash mobs in places like shopping malls and then by blocking major roads and railways. Often compared to movements like  Occupy Wall Street  and Black Lives Matter , Idle No More spread quickly across Canada, calling attention to a host of issues from water quality to the environmental effects of extractive industries, which include natural gas and oil in addition to mining. The transit disruptions were used to justify an increasingly oppressive style of surveillance by Canada’s local and federal police agencies. This is according to a new book,  Policing Indigenous Movements ,by Jeffrey Monaghan and Andrew Crosby, researchers at Carleton University in Ottawa. By requesting documents under the Access to Information Act, Mr. Monaghan and Mr. Crosby trace how the rhetoric and laws developed in Canada in response to the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, shifted from the perceived threat of Islamic terrorism to the perceived threat of indigenous groups. [...] Mr. Monaghan and Mr. Crosby also note a convergence of interests for policing agencies and extraction companies, symbolized by the use of the phrase “critical infrastructure” to refer to private industry and the need to protect it. [...] The close ties between natural resource industries and national security agencies are not a “conspiracy of capitalism,” Mr. Monaghan says, but a result of mining companies taking advantage of anti-terrorism tactics to suppress legitimate political protest. He adds that the information obtained by Canada’s extractive industries through their own private security and planning proved to be of interest to police agencies. Read more - Lire plus
Undercover cops break Facebook rules to track protesters
NBC News 05/10/2018 - In the summer of 2015, as Memphis exploded with protests over the police killing of a 19-year-old man, activists began hearing on Facebook from someone called Bob Smith. The name was generic, and so was his profile picture: a Guy Fawkes mask, the symbol of anti-government dissent.
Smith acted as if he supported the protesters, and, slowly, they let him into their online community. Over the next three years, dozens of them accepted his friend requests, allowing him to observe private discussions over marches, rallies and demonstrations. In public postings and private messages he described himself as a far-left Democrat, a “fellow protester” and a “man of color.” But Smith was not real. He was the creation of a white detective in the Memphis Police Department’s Office of Homeland Security whose job was to keep tabs on local activists across the spectrum, from Black Lives Matter to Confederate sympathizers. The detective, Tim Reynolds, outed himself in August under questioning by the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee, which sued the police department for allegedly violating a 1978 agreement that prohibited police from conducting surveillance of lawful protests. The revelation validated many activists’ distrust of local authorities. It also provided a rare look into the ways American law enforcement operates online, taking advantage of a loosely regulated social media landscape — and citizens’ casual relinquishing of their privacy — to expand monitoring of the public. Police officers around the country, in departments large and small, working for federal, state and local agencies, use undercover Facebook accounts to watch protesters, track gang members, lure child predators and snare thieves, according to court records, police trainers and officers themselves. Some maintain several of these accounts at a time. The tactic violates Facebook’s terms of use, and the company says it disables fake accounts whenever it discovers them. But that is about all it can do: Fake accounts are not against the law, and the information gleaned by the police can be used as evidence in criminal and civil cases. Investigators know this, which is why the accounts continue to flourish. Read more - Lire plus 
Owner of Limo Involved in Deadly NY Crash Spent Years as FBI Informant Entrapping Muslim Men
Democracy Now! 11/10/2018 - When a limousine crashed in upstate New York this weekend, killing 20 people, investigators quickly uncovered a series of shoddy practices by the limo company that owned the vehicle, including a record of repeated safety violations. The limousine that crashed in Schoharie, New York, in the deadliest U.S. transportation disaster since 2009 had failed an inspection last month and was not licensed to be on the road. Now it’s been revealed that the owner of Prestige Limousine Chauffeur Service is a Pakistani immigrant named Shahed Hussain, an FBI informant with a long history of entrapping Muslim men on behalf of the U.S. government. On Wednesday, state officials arrested his son Nauman Hussain, who operates his father’s limo service, and charged him with criminally negligent homicide. In Pittsburgh, we speak with a man who was entrapped by Hussain, Khalifah al-Akili. We also speak with Lyric Cabral, co-director of “(T)ERROR,” a documentary that follows a sting operation targeting Khalifah al-Akili. In New York, we speak with Sam Braverman, an attorney who represented one of the “Newburgh Four,” four black Muslim men who were convicted in 2010 of plotting to shoot down U.S. military planes based on testimony from Shahed Hussain.

USA: Catastrophic immigration policies resulted in more family separations than previously disclosed
Amnesty International 11/10/2018 - The US government has deliberately adopted immigration policies and practices that caused catastrophic harm to thousands of people seeking safety in the United States, including the separation of over 6,000 family units in a four-month period, more than previously disclosed by authorities, Amnesty International said in a new report released today. USA: ‘You Don’t Have Any Rights Here’: Illegal Pushbacks, Arbitrary Detention and Ill-treatment of Asylum-seekers in the United States   reveals the brutal toll of the Trump administration’s efforts to undermine and dismantle the US asylum system in gross violation of US and international law. The cruel policies and practices documented include: mass illegal pushbacks of asylum-seekers at the US–Mexico border; thousands of illegal family separations; and increasingly arbitrary and indefinite detentions of asylum-seekers, frequently without parole. “The Trump administration is waging a deliberate campaign of widespread human rights violations in order to punish and deter people seeking safety at the US–Mexico border,” said Erika Guevara-Rosas, Americas Director at Amnesty International. “The intensity, scale and scope of the abuses against people seeking asylum are truly sickening. Congress and US law enforcement agencies must conduct prompt, thorough and impartial investigations to hold the government accountable and ensure this never happens again.” [...] In total, the Trump administration has now admitted to separating approximately 8,000 family units since 2017.

Kavanaugh’s record hints at a potential Supreme Court shift on detainees, wartime powers
The Washington Post 08/10/2018 - In a dozen years as a circuit court judge, Kavanaugh left an important mark on federal courts’ interpretations of landmark Supreme Court rulings on detainee rights and the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Again and again, scholars said, Kavanaugh gave broad deference to presidential powers on matters of national security and war, espousing a limited view of the courts’ ability to challenge the executive branch’s mandate in that realm. Rebecca Ingber, a professor at the Boston University School of Law who previously served as a State Department lawyer, said Kavanaugh had articulated an “exceedingly narrow” role for courts in checking presidential decision-making. Under his view, “there would be very little role for courts in questioning what constitutes a matter of ‘national security,’ ” she said. “Thus, were the court to adopt Kavanaugh’s approach, the president would wield virtually unreviewable powers, simply by invoking the magic words ‘national security’ or ‘war.’ ” Kavanaugh joins the court as the Trump administration continues a 17-year-old counterterrorism campaign that has given rise to a host of thorny legal and ethical issues surrounding military detainees. [...] “The Supreme Court is not done with Guantanamo,” said Stephen Vladeck, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law. “At some point, it’s going to have to reckon with the military commissions again,” as well as potential challenges from other detainees who are not part of any military trial, he said. Trump’s administration, meanwhile, is the third since the 9/11 attacks to cite a 2001 law, the Authorization for Use of Military Force, as a legal basis for its global counterterrorism operations. Kavanaugh’s views could be pivotal if courts take up the government’s controversial use of that law, known as an AUMF, as a legal basis for its campaign against the Islamic State. Critics say the law does not provide justification for operations against the Islamic State. The American Civil Liberties Union has challenged the government’s ability to detain a  U.S. citizen suspected of links to the Islamic State  under the 2001 AUMF, which cites threats from al-Qaeda. Central to Kavanaugh’s views on national security is his skepticism of the relevance of international law in establishing limits to presidential powers. In a lengthy  opinion  he wrote in  al-Bihani v. United States , Kavanaugh argued that international law should not constrain the president’s power to fight al-Qaeda and other militant groups, and to hold detainees as part of that campaign.

Egypt: Mass death sentence and unfair military trials will not deliver justice for victims of church bombings
Amnesty International 11/10/2018 - Responding to the news that 17 people accused of carrying out three deadly church bombings in 2017, as well as attacks against security forces, have been sentenced to death by a military court in Alexandria today, Amnesty International’s North Africa Campaigns Director Najia Bounaim said: “There can be no justification for the utterly reprehensible attacks which targeted worshippers in Coptic Christian churches across Egypt in 2017. There is no doubt that the perpetrators of these horrific attacks should be held accountable for their crimes. But handing out a mass death sentence after an unfair military trial is not justice and will not deter further sectarian attacks. Egypt has a shocking track record of unlawfully trying civilians in its notorious military courts and sentencing scores to death after grossly unfair mass trials, often based on ‘confessions’ extracted through torture. Those accused of involvement in these heinous crimes must be retried in a civilian court in proceedings that comply with international human rights law and fair trial standards.” Military trials are inherently unfair because all personnel in military courts, from judges to prosecutors, are serving members of the military who report to the Minister of Defense and do not have the necessary training on rule of law or fair trial standards. The death penalty is the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment. Amnesty International opposes the death penalty in all cases without exception - regardless of who is accused, the nature or circumstances of the crime, guilt or innocence or method of execution.

China’s Human Rights Abuses Against Uighurs in Xinjiang
Lawfare 09/10/2018 - Under the guise of “fighting terrorism,” China has created a large-scale program for the mass surveillance, incarceration and re-education of Xinjiang’s Turkic-speaking Muslims, the Uighurs, as well as other minority groups. These actions clearly contravene China’s international commitments as well as its own domestic law—but it’s unclear what actions the international community will take in response. In Xinjiang, the local authorities (XUAR) are currently running two massive re-education programs, with support from Beijing. The first is a forcible internment program, under which an estimated million Uighurs have been indefinitely detained without due process of law. In August, the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERC)  condemned  these internment camps as a “no rights zone,” and a recent Human Rights Watch  report  details pervasive abuse, including forcible sleep deprivation, beatings, and people being hung from ceilings and walls. Former detainees  describe  being forced to renounce their religious beliefs or consume alcohol and meat, thereby violating their religious practices. The second program involves mandatory day/evening “education sessions.” Uighurs are  forced  to learn Mandarin, sing songs about China and attend weekly flag-raising ceremonies.  Chinese Human Rights Defenders  estimates that the number of Xinjiang residents detained in these two programs collectively totals two to three million, out of a total Uighur population of 10 million. The locus of China’s general re-education activity appears to be in Southern Xinjiang, where the majority of Xinjiang’s Uighur population lives. The Financial Times reported in August that an  estimated 80 percent of adults  in urban neighborhoods there have been forcibly removed. As  one Han Chinese man who has lived in Xinjiang for 20 years stated, “Entire villages in Southern Xinjiang have been emptied of young and middle-aged people—all rounded up into ‘re-education’ classes. Only the elderly and the very docile are left in the villages.” Meanwhile, Chinese authorities have relocated the children of those taken to camps and  placed them in orphanages . On Oct. 1,  Radio-Free Asia reported  that China is also forcibly relocating “re-educated” adults, secretly sending them to prisons as far away as Heilongjiang province in China’s far northeast. In addition to internment and re-education programs, XUAR has also instituted a number of oppressive restrictions on Islamic and other Uighur cultural practices. As Josh Rogin  reported  for the Washington Post in August, the government has destroyed religious buildings;  banned long beards  and the use of  many Muslim names  for new babies; and erected crematoria to extinguish the Uighur funeral tradition, which involves a special cleansing, religious ceremony, and  burial.  Meanwhile, the government has also instituted a new system of mass surveillance to monitor the movement and associations of Uighurs in the territory. As the Wall Street Journal  reported in December 2017 , the amount of surveillance equipment used for every 100,000 people in Xinjiang roughly equals what is used to monitor over a million people in other parts of China. All Uighurs are  required  to install a surveillance app on their phones that transfers audio and video files and other personal data to an outside server. Some families  have been forced  to allow Communist Party officials to live in their homes; in other locations, authorities have even placed QR codes on home residences. Officials reportedly scan the QR when they enter a resident to verify information about how many individuals live in a given place. Read more - Lire plus 
Crown prince sought to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia and detain him, U.S. intercepts show
The Washington Post 10/10/2018 - The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, ordered an operation to lure Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia from his home in Virginia and then detain him, according to U.S. intelligence intercepts of Saudi officials discussing the plan. The intelligence, described by U.S. officials familiar with it, is another piece of evidence implicating the Saudi regime in Khashoggi’s disappearance last week after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Turkish officials say that a Saudi security team lay in wait for the journalist and killed him. Khashoggi was a prominent critic of the Saudi government and Mohammed in particular. Several of Khashoggi’s friends said that over the past four months, senior Saudi officials close to the crown prince had called Khashoggi to offer him protection, and even a high-level job working for the government, if he returned to his home country. Khashoggi, however, was skeptical of the offers. He told one friend that the Saudi government would never make good on its promises not to harm him. Read more - Lire plus

Digital IDs Are More Dangerous Than You Think
Wired 28/09/2018 - There are significant, real-world benefits to having an accepted and recognized  identity . That’s why the concept of a  digital identity  is being pursued around the world, from Australia to India. [...] But as someone who has tracked the advantages and perils of technology for human rights over the past ten years, I am nevertheless convinced that digital ID, writ large, poses one of the gravest risks to human rights of any technology that we have encountered. Worse, we are rushing headlong into a future where new technologies will converge to make this risk much more severe. For starters, we are building near-perfect  facial recognition  technology and other identifiers, from the human gait to breath to iris. Biometric databases are being set up in such a way that these individual identifiers are centralized, insecure, and opaque. Then there is the capacity for  geo-location  of identifiers—that is, the tracking of digital “you”—in real time. A constant feed of insecure data from the Internet of Things may well connect you (and your identity) to other identities and nodes on the network without your consent. In addition, systems using artificial intelligence and machine learning are used to make decisions based on our identities. Those systems are often built on data that can reinforce bias and discrimination, and are wielded without sufficient transparency or human review. Ultimately,  social credit systems , such as those that are currently being developed in China, will be based on digital ID, thereby enabling or disabling our full and free participation in society. By developing these technologies in parallel with systems for a digital ID, we are not simply establishing an identity to access basic social services. Digital IDs will become necessary to function in a connected digital world. This has not escaped the attention of authoritarian regimes. Already, they are working to splinter the internet, collect and localize data, and impose regimes of surveillance and control. Digital ID systems, as they are being developed today, are ripe for exploitation and abuse, to the detriment of our freedoms and democracies. [...] We cannot continue on the current path without stopping to build in necessary human rights protections to mitigate harm. Our civil liberties should be the foundation upon which digital ID technologies, platforms, and systems are being constructed. Otherwise, in the quest to create a digital identity for the benefit of many, our fundamental rights can and will crumble. Read more - Lire plus
Israel’s Gabriella Blum Helped Write the Laws of Drone Warfare. Nearly Two Decades Later, She Has Regrets.
The Intercept 07/10/2018 - In 2000, when Blum was 25, the Second Intifada, or Palestinian uprising, erupted. That summer, President Bill Clinton’s Camp David peace accords collapsed. Within a few months, Ariel Sharon, then an inflammatory candidate for prime minister, visited Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, the Muslim holy site that historically had been off-limits to Jews. The incitement set off a half-decade of Israeli-Palestinian clashes; hundreds of casualties, primarily Palestinian, were to come. By the end of 2001, Hamas and Islamic Jihad suicide bombers were regularly targeting Israeli malls, pizza shops, bus stops, and nightclubs. It was within this tragic, fraught climate that the IDF ramped up its targeted killings. As carried out by the Israelis, these were attacks — using small arms as well as manned and unmanned aircraft — on individuals deemed high-level terrorist operatives who were active in the occupied territories of Gaza and the West Bank. Effectively, they were assassinations. At the time, the U.S. position on these killings was unequivocal. As Martin Indyk, then the U.S. ambassador to Israel, put it in July 2001: “The United States government is against targeted assassinations. … They are extrajudicial killings, and we do not support that.”
A few months before Indyk’s statement, former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell led an international commission to Israel to compile a report on the crisis. While carrying out his investigation, Mitchell and his team met with members of the ILD. Pnina Sharvit Baruch, then-deputy head of the ILD, recalls the senator explaining, “’Terrorists are criminals,’” not enemy combatants. “‘All you can do is arrest them’” — not kill them. “They were very critical of the way we fought. And we said, ‘OK! We disagree!’” she said. Daniel Reisner, then-head of the ILD, added, “The U.S. administration strongly recommended — not to say urged, not to say instructed us” — to stop the targeted killings. Then came the 9/11 attacks and, with them, the sudden and now seemingly irrevocable U.S. government position that terrorists must be annihilated by any means necessary. In the 17 years since the attacks, the U.S. has conducted at least 850 targeted assassinations in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia alone, killing between 4,100 and 6,200 people, according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Between 600 and 1,250 of those are thought to be civilian deaths. U.S. targeted killings are often carried out by drones. And under the Obama administration, the Justice Department justified its drone warfare by explicitly citing the legal arguments that Blum and her colleagues developed in that tucked-away ILD office many years ago. “If you do something for long enough, the world will accept it,” Reisner boasted to Haaretz  in 2009 . “International law progresses through violations. We invented the targeted assassination thesis, and we had to push it.” [...] The George W. Bush administration pointed to the IDF’s precedent in the wake of 9/11 as they pushed the authorization for use of military force, or AUMF — which the U.S. has used to wage its war on terror against Al Qaeda, ISIS, and any future “associated forces” — through Congress. As the New Yorker reported, “Bush’s legal advisers  modelled their rationale on Israel’s position against terrorism , arguing that the U.S. government had the right to use lethal force against suspected terrorists in ‘anticipatory’ self-defense.” [A] Justice Department memo justifying the targeting of the jihadi propagandist Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen, directly quotes the ILD’s argument in the PCATI case. “Although arrest, investigation and trial ‘might actually be particularly practical under the conditions of belligerent occupation, in which the army controls the area in which the operation takes place,’” the memo reads, “such alternatives ‘are not means which can always be used,’ either because they are impossible or because they involve a great risk to the lives of soldiers.” A U.S. drone killed al-Awlaki in September 2011 in Yemen.

Call on Justin Trudeau to ensure justice for Abousfian Abdelrazik
In September 2003, Canadian citizen Abousfian Abdelrazik was arrested in Sudan, while he was back in the country visiting his ailing mother. Over the next three years he was imprisoned for nearly 20 months and was held under house arrest for 12 months. He was denied a lawyer, and was never charged or brought before a judge. There were lengthy periods when he had no family or consular visits. During that time he was badly tortured in three different prisons. Not only did Canada fail to take steps to protect him, CSIS officials frequently obstructed efforts to secure his release. Those actions prolonged his detention, with no concern for the obvious risk of mistreatment he was facing.

Iran: Release Saeed Malekpour!
Saeed Malekpour, an Iranian national with permanent residency in Canada, has been imprisoned in Iran since his arrest on 4 October 2008. In late 2010, he was initially sentenced to death for “spreading corruption on earth” in relation to a web programme he created for uploading photos which the Iranian authorities said was used on pornographic websites. This was an open source programme and Saeed Malekpour has maintained that the use of this web programme on other websites was without his knowledge. His death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment in 2012.
