Rohingya Activist Recalls Devastation at World's Most Densely Populated Refugee Camp in Bangladesh

Democracy Now - Fri, 04/27/2018 - 13:00
Extended conversation with Rohingya activist Tun Khin, who visited the world’s most densely populated refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, earlier this month. The U.N. Security Council is visiting Burma and Bangladesh starting this week to assess the state of the Rohingya. Hundreds of thousands of registered Rohingya refugees now live in the Cox’s Bazar district in southeastern Bangladesh, after fleeing a Burmese military campaign of rape, murder and arson that the U.N. has called a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” Now aid agencies are scrambling to relocate tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees from crowded camps in Bangladesh ahead of the monsoon season in June. The United Nations high commissioner for refugees says at least 150,000 people are at “high risk from mudslides and floods” from the heavy rain in the next few months. This comes as more refugees are still crossing over from Burma. Last week, Burma’s Social Welfare, Relief, and Resettlement Minister Win Myat Aye said Burma will start repatriation of Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh ahead of the monsoon. But Tun Khin, president of the Burmese Rohingya Organisation UK and a member of the Free Rohingya Coalition, says repatriation without international protection will have devastating effects. We are joined in our New York studio by Tun Khin. He was born in Burma, but in 1982 he was rendered effectively stateless, along with a million other ethnic Rohingya, under a nationality law.

Exclusivo: Dilma Rousseff no Democracy Now! (Em Português)

Democracy Now - Fri, 04/27/2018 - 13:00
Protestos continuam no Brasil contra a prisão do ex-presidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. No início deste mês, Lula começou a cumprir pena de 12 anos de prisão, mas sua condenação por corrupção é bastante controversa. Lula, até agora, segue sendo o favorito para as eleições presidenciais deste ano. Seus apoiadores dizem que sua prisão é uma continuação de um golpe que começou em 2016, quando sua aliada Dilma Rousseff sofreu um impeachment. Lula e Dilma são membros do Partido dos Trabalhadores, de esquerda, e foram responsáveis ??por tirar dezenas de milhões de brasileiros da pobreza desde que Lula foi eleito pela primeira vez em 2003. Falamos com a ex-presidente brasileira Dilma Rousseff. Seu afastamento em 2016 encerrou quase 14 anos de governo pelo Partido dos Trabalhadores. Dilma é uma ex-presa política que participou da resistência clandestina à ditadura brasileira apoiada pelos EUA na década de 1960. Ela foi presa de 1970 a 1972, período em que sofreu tortura repetidas vezes. Ela foi eleita presidente em 2010 e reeleita em 2014.

Gjeldsdrevet vannprivatisering i Hellas

Attac - Thu, 04/26/2018 - 09:47
Den EU-påførte innstrammingspolitikken vi har vært vitne til i Hellas har vært kompromissløs. Hellas har vært tvunget til å selge unna fellesskapsverdier, eiendeler og virksomhet. Privatiseringen har i midlertidig møtt stor motstand, og grekerne har kjempet i årevis for å verne om vannet deres.

Parents of Saheed Vassell, Shot Dead by NYPD, Demand the Release of All Surveillance Video

Democracy Now - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 13:00
We continue our conversation with the parents of Saheed Vassell, who are calling for justice after New York police officers responding to a 911 call shot dead their son, an unarmed, mentally troubled African-American man, on a street corner in Brooklyn on April 5. At the time of his death, Vassell was holding a metal pipe that police say they mistook for a gun. The NYPD said four officers—three in plainclothes and one uniformed—fired 10 rounds at Vassell, a Jamaican immigrant. None of the officers who opened fire were wearing body cameras. The Vassell family is now calling for the release of all unedited video from the area leading up to and during the shooting.
