Me quoted in Fairfax papers on tax haven use
Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today. John Passant, from the school of political science and international relations, at the Australian National University, said the trend noted by Computershare was further evidence multinationals did not take global regulators seriously. ”US companies are doing this on the hard-nosed basis that any [regulatory] changes that will be made won’t have an impact on their ability to avoid tax,” he said. ”They think it is going to take a long time for the G20 to take action, or that they are just all talk.” (1)

Sharon died without facing justice – Human Rights Watch

As world leaders send their condolences to Israel following the death of former PM Ariel Sharon, there are no tears shed among those who suffered most from his policies says RT News. Human Rights Watch says he evaded prosecution for crimes against humanity.

Ariel Sharon: War Criminal

Ariel Sharon’s death has prompted me to post this article by Hadas Thier from the International Socialist Review Issue 17, April-May 2001 called Ariel Sharon: War Criminal. ‘Sharon, nicknamed “The Bulldozer” for his preference for clearing Palestinians off their land, has one of the most extensive and brutal records of war crimes, spanning more than 50 years. To Palestinians, Sharon represents massacres at refugee camps, bulldozed homes, and a complete disregard for the rights and lives of Arabs in the region.’

Senseless killings

The media in Australia have reported extensively on Chris Lane’s murder. They do not show, let alone remark upon, the numerous Chrises in Afghanistan or Pakistan that US drones and the Occupation forces have murdered. It serves the interests of the ruling elite in Australia and the US to ignore the reality of the death they unleash around the globe.

Bradley Manning on trial for exposing war crimes

Bradley Manning has revealed to the world the U.S.’s guilt in war crimes and lies and deserves solidarity and celebration for it, not punishment and prison.

Obama’s drone wars

Eric Ruder in Socialist Worker US reports on a new weapon of choice in U.S. wars around the globe – the drone.

Boycott the Sri Lankan cricket team

For too long, Australia has turned a blind eye to the mounting evidence that the ruling regime in Sri Lanka has committed war crimes, including the slaughter of more than 40,000 innocent Tamil civilians at the end of the civil war in 2009.

This cricket season, Australia’s attention will be trained on the batting and bowling of the Sri Lankan cricket team at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. By calling for a boycott we can expose the human rights abuses that the Sri Lankan cricketers just can’t hide. And we can encourage our own government to recognise that refugees from Sri Lanka are fleeing genuine persecution.

A refugee, a protester and a war criminal

A refugee is dead. A protester has spent 24 hours in jail for being in the middle of Perth. And a war criminal walks among the other ‘dignitaries’ at CHOGM. The wrong people were imprisoned; the criminal is free.

The system is crooked, brutal and inhuman.

The war criminals are part of the one percent; that one percent looks after its own when it suits them.

Put Blair on trial for his war crimes

Tony Blair finally admitted recently what millions of people in the anti-war movement have known for years – that he was intent on going to war in Iraq whether the country posed a threat or not. Fern Britton asked Blair in a BBC TV interview, “If you had known then that there were no WMDs […]

War criminal Ehud Olmert welcomed in Canberra

Former Israeli Prime Minister ordered the invasion of Gaza. He is a war criminal. This is just not the ravings of a mad leftie like me. The UN Goldstone report found that Israel and Hamas had potentially committed war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity. This is how Ian Black from the Guardian put it: […]

Israel, war crimes and the West

The Goldstone Report is unequivocal. It concluded: [T]here is evidence indicating serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law were committed by Israel during the Gaza conflict, and that Israel committed actions amounting to war crimes, and possibly crimes against humanity. The report goes on to detail the evidence that leads to that conclusion.  […]
