4.) Vive la révolte des femmes d’Iran ! (Révolution en Iran):

„30 ans de régime islamique = 30 ans d’apartheid sexiste !“

„Vous les femmes signifiez la vie
L’esclavage est terminé
Construire un monde nouveau est possible
Notre lutte le réalisera
Il y a de la liberté dans notre voix
Il y a de la sagesse dans notre voix
Il est possible d’avoir la liberté pour les femmes
Et notre mouvement construit les fondations pour cela“

5.) Aus der unabhängigen Gewerkschaftsbewegung:

* Vahed trade union activists’ dismissal sentences quashed (IWSN)

„In a decisive majority decision taken on July 12 2009, the General Board of the Administrative Court of Justice quashed all the dismissal sentences of the [Vahed] trade union’s workers and sent the case files of these workers to the Arbitration Board of the Labour Office for review.
The Vahed Company workers’ trade union would like to congratulate all workers on this victory, and while thanking [them], sends its boundless greetings to all sacked workers who have had to endure irreparable harm during this time.
The Vahed Company workers’ trade union once again would like to thank all individuals and Iranian and international social and labour institutions who, with their moral support during these past years, have contributed to our journey on this road.“

* Iranian print workers speak out (Rise of The Iranian People)

„Our union, IUPWT, is centered on a number of large and mostly state- or semi-state-owned enterprises accounting for the bulk of the books and print media published in the capital. Because of the harsh police conditions imposed against labor organizing, our union activists and the workers who support us have to operate under the constant threat of arrest, imprisonment in solitary conditions, physical and mental abuse, and dismissal from work.
At the time of rising unemployment, the least of these measures, dismissal from work, could have devastating effect on our workers and their families. These are illegal acts that are even against the Iranian regime’s own constitution, not to mention all the international covenants to which the Iranian government is a signatory.
As you all well know, the courage of our people, especially its young, has transformed Iran into a new country. There is mass repression going on against our people, but the dictatorship has lost its aura of invincibility and its mystique of superior, otherworldly power. And for the first time in more than a generation, there is hope again in the country. You could see it in the faces of the old and the young. It is hope for a new beginning, hope for democracy, and hope for a life without tyranny.
Further, the success of the Green Wave movement in Iran could be an inspiration for millions of people in the other countries of the Muslim world. They could see that they could build grassroots democracy with their own hands and without any supposedly benevolent foreign hand aiding and abetting them. The Green Wave movement is democratic, it is nonviolent, and it is independent.“

6.) Weitere Hintergrundartikel:

* What is Velayate faqih (Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists)? (Revolutionary Road)

* Iran: Der Riss geht quer durch (Ali Schirasi):

„Während das Regime zahlreiche Funktionäre und Politiker der sogenannten Reformisten-Parteien und -Gruppen „Hezb-e Mosharekat“ (Partei der Mitbeteiligung), „Sazeman-e Mojahedin-e Enqelab-e Eslami“ (Organisation der Modschahedin der Islamischen Revolution), „Hezb-e E’temad-e Melli“ (Partei des Nationalen Vertrauens), „Hezb-e Korgozaran-e Sazandegi“ (Partei der Dienstleister des Wiederaufbaus), „Daftar-e Tahkim-e Wahdat“ (Büro zur Festigung der Einheit – Studentenbewegung) etc. inhaftiert haben, treten die in Freiheit verbliebenen Politiker wie Karubi mit immer radikaleren Forderungen auf. Sie bleiben damit zwar hinter dem zurück, was die Bevölkerung fordert, gehen damit aber über alles hinaus, was sie bislang öffentlich vertreten haben. Täten sie es nicht, würden sie ihre Glaubwürdigkeit unter der Bevölkerung ganz verlieren. Selbst der äußerst vorsichtige Ajatollah Rafsandschani forderte auf seiner letzten Freitagspredigt die Freilassung der politischen Gefangenen und rief dazu auf, die Familien der „Geschädigten“ zu besuchen und zu trösten – das tut die Bevölkerung ohnehin, und „geschädigt“ hört sich auch ein bisschen feiner an als „zu Tode gefoltert“.“

* Interview mit Yassamine Mather zur Frage des ‘antiimperialistischen’ Charakters des iranischen Regimes (HOPI)

„Das iranische Regime ist nicht das ideale Regime für die US/EU-Imperialisten; es ist nationalistisch und außer Kontrolle. Es braucht Krisen, um zu überleben, und das reduziert die Stabilität in der Region. Die Imperialisten haben jedoch Nutzen aus Irans aktiver Unterstützung für die Invasionen in Afghanistan und im Irak gezogen. Bush und die Neocons wollten am gesamten Regime der IRI Rache für die Geiselnahme der US-Botschaftsangehörigen in Teheran im Jahr 1980 nehmen, aber Obama und die EU können mit reformistischen Islamisten leben und haben wie seinerzeit Khatami jetzt Moussavi als Präsidenten vorgezogen (ohne allerdings die Proteste organisiert zu haben). Es gibt Unterschiede zwischen der EU und den USA in dieser Hinsicht. Die USA würden eine Rückkehr zu einer mehr mainstreamigen bürgerlich-liberalen Regierung, vielleicht eine Koalition aus konstitutionellen Royalisten und Republikanern, die EU setzt eher auf Leute wie Moussavi.“

* Hope and anticipation (Weekly Worker/CPGB)

„Ahmadinejad had promised to revive the values of the Islamic revolution, which he accused the previous president, Khatami, of neglecting, and this had appealed to some religious people. But that changed in the recent election, when religious concerns were less prominent compared to other issues like the economy and social rights. Moreover, it was Moussavi who attracted part of the religious vote, because of his background as part of the reformist wing of the religious regime.
On the other hand, there are also those who take their lead from Khamenei, including the bassiji and fundamentalist sections of the military. They continued to support Ahmadinejad.
Capital itself is divided. There is a traditional market based on imported goods, and this section provides Ahmadinejad with his main spiritual and financial support (and, of course, these are the people who have gained the most from his policies). Another section consists of technocrats with more liberal views, and these people tended to support Moussavi.
What I’m trying to say is that none of the candidates enjoyed firm, consistent support from the majority of Iranians, who are always looking to the candidate who seems to be standing in opposition to the regime. Previously that was Ahmadinejad; this time it was Moussavi.
However, not everyone who voted for Moussavi believes he can do the job. And not everyone who was protesting on the streets was a Moussavi supporter. Those who are against Ahmadinejad are hardly fully behind Moussavi, Khatami and Rafsanjani.“

Prügelstrafe und religiöser Fundamentalismus

Posted by entdinglichung - 29. Juli 2009

Im Sudan wurden kürzlich Frauen wegen des Tragens von Hosen und in Malaysia wegen des Trinkens von Bier von Sharia-Gerichten zu Stockschlägen verurteilt … doch auch im „Freien Westen“ regen sich religiöse FundamentalistInnen und verwandte Kräfte, welche ihre Variante von Sozialdisziplinierung gerne mit gesetzlichem Rückhalt per physischer Gewalt durchsetzen wollen. So dürfen Neuseelands WählerInnen von 31. Juli an zur Frage „Should a smack as part of good parental correction be a criminal offence in New Zealand?“ in einem Referendum ihr Votum abgeben. Nachdem der Crimes (Substituted Section 59) Amendment Act 2007 Eltern das Schlagen ihrer Kinder gesetzlich untersagte bildete sich dort eine Koalition aus rechtspopulistischen Libertarians (ehemals „Association of Consumers and Taxpayers„), evangelikalen Parteien und Vereinigungen (Wer die Rute spart, hasst seinen Sohn, / wer ihn liebt, nimmt ihn früh zur Zucht. (Spr 13,24)), einem islamischen Verband, „Vaterschaftsrechts-Aktivisten“ und anderen autoritären Charakteren, welche es als Verletzung ihres ureigenen Gewohnheitsrechtes, ihrer Religionsfreiheit und/oder ihrer Privatssphäre ansehen, wenn sie ihre Kinder nicht mehr prügeln dürfen und damit ihren Teil zur Brutalisierung der Gesellschaft beitragen.

„The woman responsible for collecting 300,000 signatures in a bid to overturn Ms Bradford’s bill is Sheryl Savill, a 40-year-old mother of two who works as a communicator for an evangelical organisation, Focus on the Family. Her husband is a policeman.

Ms Savill said: „When I realised how the anti-smacking law would directly affect the way I was raising my girls I knew that I had to do something. A light smack done in a good home that’s full of love isn’t child abuse.““ (Quelle)

Das auch Kinder ein Recht auf physische Unversehrtheit haben und nicht geschlagen werden wollen scheint derartigen Gestalten vollkommen egal zu sein, Grund genug, diesen und anderen TugendterroristInnen das Handwerk zu legen, zumal die Erfahrung zeigt, dass diese sich nicht hiermit zufrieden geben würden sondern versuchen werden, ihre reaktionäre Utopie schrittweise der gesamten Gesellschaft überzustülpen.

Neun Frauen im Irak droht die Ermordung durch den Staat

Posted by entdinglichung - 29. Juli 2009

Der nachfolgend dokumentierte Aufruf der Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq (OWFI) stammt von der Webseite Socialist Blog News:

Faust

OWFI’s Campaign to Stop the Execution of Female Prisoners in Iraq

Eleven female prisoners were taken to the extreme protection prison in Kadhimia in Baghdad two months ago for the purpose of execute capital punishment on them.

In spite of allegations of liberation and democracy, the Iraqi state continues to claim the right to terminate the citizens‘ lives whenever needed, as if the citizens were a property of the state and can be disposed of by killing. Furthermore, the state legislates a judicial process for these killing and gives them the name of capital punishment.

One of the eleven women jailed in the death center, Kasima Hamid was terminated recently in June, while Lamia Adnan was terrorized to death, as she died from a heart attack. The rest of the women live under daily terror lest they are next on the death row and their children are orphaned.

Nine women await termination any day and have no hope to live. OWFI follows up on their families trying to help them get over their tragedy and difficulties which mostly resulted from the political chaos of this era. These families grief their daughter in silence.

We demand the cancellation of the decision to terminate these women and their immediate return to the C4 women’s prison. The women who stand for death row are: Samar Saad, Shirooq Hassoun, Sabreen Nasser, Samira Abdulla, Um Hussein*, Hanan, Thikra Fakhry, Luma Adnan, and Wassan Taleb.

OWFI also demands a fair trial for Samar Saad and Wassan Taleb and all who were convicted by the crimes that their husbands or male relatives committed. These crimes took place in places far away from the women. Nevertheless, the verdict, which in some cases was multiple death penalties, was imposed on the women within a speedy and superficial legal process.

OWFI will forward an appeal to the offices of the prime minister and the president. Nevertheless, we are not optimistic to any positive result without pressure from outside Iraq .

Therefore, we call upon all women’s and human rights organizations to support our demand of stopping the execution of these women. No human being should be killed whatever the accusation is.

Ein Interview zur Lage der Hausangestellten in Tansania

„An international convention on domestic work would help us a great deal“

Brussels, 27 July 2009: The Tanzanian Conservation, Hotels, Domestic and Allied Workers’ Union, CHODAWU (1), has been working in defence of domestic workers and in the fight against domestic child labour for over ten years. With less than one year to go before the first ILO discussion on a new international convention on domestic work, Titus Mlengeya, National Chairman of CHODAWU, outlines the trade union action taken in this area and the problems still to tackle.

What are the main forms of exploitation suffered by domestic workers in Tanzania?

As there is no formal employment contract, domestic workers face harassment and threats from their employers but do not usually dare to complain. They are often treated like second-class citizens in relation to the family members in the household. Some domestic workers receive unduly severe punishments for the slightest of errors. And then there is also the potential problem of sexual abuse: domestic workers refusing sexual relations with their boss risk being dismissed. This also creates tension with the boss’s wife, who does not usually trust the domestic worker as she suspects her of colluding with her husband. In situations like these, the worker is doubly mistreated in the household.

Another recurring problem is the irregular payment of wages. At the end of the month, domestic workers are told they will be paid the following month… There is no certainty as to when they will be paid and, in some instances, the employer holds on to their wages until their departure, saying that they do not really need the money. So they end up like slaves, as they do not have the freedom to leave the job with the guarantee of being paid. In addition, it is not uncommon for them to have considerable amounts deducted from their salary (which is sometimes as little as 10 dollars) for small damages such as a broken glass. After deductions like these they are left with nothing of their wages at the end of the month.

What services do you offer domestic workers?

We have set up five help centres in Dar es Salaam, the capital, which is the main destination of domestic workers from the rest of the country. The two other centres are in regions considered to be the main places of origin of domestic workers and have been set up to try and contain the problem at the source. The aim of these centres is to help domestic workers living in very difficult circumstances. They mainly take in former child domestics and welcome around 4000 children a year on average. The staff at the centres includes teachers, nurses and matrons, who give advice and training. One of the aims is to counsel those who have suffered from exploitation so that they can get back to feeling like normal human beings. Another aim is to give them training in different disciplines (sewing, cooking, housekeeping, etc.) so that they can then secure decent work and a decent life. These training courses are organised in conjunction with specific institutions (driving schools, hotel management schools, etc.). The younger ones manage to get back into mainstream education.

Is it not up to the authorities to offer training?

Indeed, it is the government’s responsibility to look after its citizens’ welfare, but CHODAWU, as a union associated with domestic workers, has a role to play to ensure that its members are not mistreated. But you cannot protect them if they themselves are not made aware of their own situation, if they have no confidence in the fact that they are human beings and deserve to be treated the same way as everyone else. This awareness cannot be gained if we leave them in their current state of ignorance. If we do not act at this level, they will continue to be disrespected, to receive extremely low wages, and this new generation of domestic workers will develop within the context of mental and material difficulties, which is no good for the future.

How do you make contact with exploited children?

We have been cooperating for over ten years with NGOs and representatives of the authorities at neighbourhood level to identify where child domestics can be found. We also make good use of the media, as some domestic workers, in the towns, have access to radio and TV programmes. Even if they cannot sit down to listen to these programmes, they can listen while they are working, and learn about how others have been rescued by CHODAWU.

We also go to the bus and train stations to identify newcomers. Some people trade in these children, recruiting them in rural areas and then selling them in the towns. Whenever we identify potential victims, we work in partnership with the police to have the traffickers arrested and we take the children to our centres. We also contact the authorities in the villages where they come from. If we do not find a member of the family who can take care of the child, we give them long-term shelter in our centres.

Children who have been trafficked and then rescued by our programme are now helping us to identify other mistreated children and adult domestics suffering from exploitation, and bring them to our centres. It is also a means of recruiting them as members and letting them open up about their grievances so that CHODAWU can try to help resolve the problems with their employers.

Do these programmes bring you new members?

Yes, but we are above all fulfilling our duty in terms of social responsibility. Having responsible citizens is crucial to Tanzania’s future. CHODAWU has become like a parent for a group of former exploited workers, as we have helped them to regain a normal life. They place great trust in us and we have a long-term relationship with them.

Liberales Dänemark?

Posted by entdinglichung - 28. Juli 2009

Offenbar nicht ganz:

„Am Samstag sind in Kopenhagen die World Outgames, eines der größten lesbischwulen Sportfestivals der Welt, erst eröffnet worden. Und schon wenige Stunden danach wurden drei Teilnehmer in der Innenstadt in der dänischen Hauptstadt zusammengeschlagen.

Ein Norweger, ein Schwede und ein Brite mussten Sonntag früh nach einem Überfall in ein Krankenhaus eingeliefert werden. Die dänische Polizei geht von Hasskriminalität aus: Die Überfälle seien ausschliesslich wegen der Homosexualität der Männer begangen worden, so ein Polizeisprecher.“

Allerdings gibt es durchaus Anzeichen, dass derartige homophobe Angriffe in Kopenhagen leider anders als in offiziellen Verlautbarungen angedeutet keine Einzelfälle sind, sondern dass sich dort derartiges in den letzten Monaten häufte.

„A woman identified as Sakineh Mohammadi, is in danger of being stoned to death by the Iranian authorities in the northwestern Iranian city of Tabriz, wrote the human rights lawyer Mohammad Mostafaei in his weblog.

Mohammad Mostafaei who has taken the responsibility of defending Sekineh writes: Sekineh Mohammadi who has been in the central prison of Tabriz the last four years is convicted of adultry. She was previously sentenced to 99 lashes for adultry and the sentence has already been carried out.

Besides the lashes, she has also been sentenced to death by stoning. The stoning verdict has been approved by the supreme court and is in the section for implementation of the verdict, according to Mr. Mostafaei.

Mohammad Mostafaei has already written a letter to head of the Iranian judiciary Mahmoud Shahroudi, asking him to remove the stoning verdict.

According to Mr. Mostafaei, Sekineh is at imminent danger of death by stoning.“

6.) Bilder vom weltweiten Aktionstag vom letzten Sonnabend auf Revolutionary Road

7.) Aus einem Aufruf von 42 Menschenrechtsorganisationen aus dem arabischen Raum:

„The undersigned organizations regret that the Iranian people, who made enormous sacrifices to rid of themselves of the former dictatorial regime, must once more suffer through the equally tyrannical rule of the Islamic Republic. The worst violations characterizing the previous dark era have been incessantly resumed—namely through torture, arbitrary detentions, extra-judicial killing, and suppression of the political opposition, and social cultural freedoms – under the cloak of religious notions and authorities, which Iran’s ruling clerical elites take shelter.“

Die britische Polizei entschuldigt sich für zwei Tote in Polizeigewahrsam

Posted by entdinglichung - 26. Juli 2009

Aus einem Artikel von Marina Hyde aus dem gestrigen Guardian … nach dem Tode von Ian Tomlinson am 1. April und dem dreissigsten Jahrestag der Ermordung von Blair Peach durch Bullen in London entschuldigt sich die Polizei … natürlich nicht bei den Hinterbliebenen und FreundInnen der Genannten:

„Do make sure you’re sitting down. Something quite extraordinary has happened. The police have issued an abject apology for two deaths in their custody, and announced that the officer responsible will be prosecuted. How to put this momentous announcement into context? How to throw it into the sharp relief which is deserves? Well, according to monitoring carried out by the organisation Inquest, there have been 954 deaths in police custody in England and Wales since 1990 – the figure includes shootings – with nary a successful prosecution for murder or manslaughter.

And so to this historic case, which has seen top brass abandon their traditionally minimalist statements on such tragedies, unless of course they take the bizarre decision to pretend that the victim had leapt over a ticket barrier or some such. The deaths have caused „immense sadness“, according to the relevant force’s chief superintendent. „We will certainly take any lessons we can get from this process, and make sure we put them in place so this sort of thing never happens again. We understand the upset that this has caused the public and members of our staff … There is a sense of shock and sadness at the news of the death of two of our police dogs.““

Grund zur Entwarnung, die Cops sind nicht lieb geworden sondern die Polizei trauert nur gemeinsam mit der britischen Öffentlichkeit um zwei Polizeihunde … zwei Wauwaus, Wesen in deren Leiden sich das Gros der Gesellschaft (in der BRD dürfte es vermutlich nicht anders sein) sehr gut einfühlen kann, keine von Bullen zu Tode geprügelten oder erschossenen Menschen, welche ohnehin auf Grund ihrer Todesart in der hegemonialen Lesart automatisch „Kriminelle“ sind, welche es nicht anders verdient haben.

Weiterhin merkt der genannte Artikel noch an:

„Of course, there’s a point to be made about some people’s prioritising of animal injustice, where its human equivalent elicits less concern in them. In 2006, more money was given to a single Devon donkey sanctuary than to all the most prominent charities dealing with violence and abuse of women.“

RMT: Unterstützung der Vestas-BesetzerInnen per Hubschrauber!?

Posted by entdinglichung - 24. Juli 2009

Neues von der Vestas-Besetzung, die als klassenkämpferisch bekannte Gewerkschaft National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) und ihr Generalsekretär Bob Crow erklären sich nicht nur solidarisch sondern kündigen auch an, im Zweifelsfall mit unkonventionellen Methoden die von den Bullen belagerten BesetzerInnen mit Lebensmitteln versorgen zu wollen:

„At a rally at the factory last night, RMT general secretary Bob Crow confirmed that the union was making contingency arrangements to get food, water and other supplies into the factory, including the possible use of a helicopter, to prevent the workers from being starved into submission.

Bob Crow, RMT general secretary, said today:

“The whole of the trade union and environmental movement should be proud of the courage and determination being shown by the workers at Vestas in the teeth of threats and intimidation. We all have a duty to ensure that they are not beaten into submission.

“This dispute brings together two crucial issues – the right to protection from companies who abuse the law to hire and fire and the right to live in a world where the environment and sustainability are absolute priorities.

“We are demanding an urgent intervention from Ed Milliband today. The government stand accused of sheer hypocrisy over their public announcements on climate change while our only wind turbine factory faces the axe. If the government can nationalise the banks at the drop of a hat there is no reason whatsoever why they can’t nationalise Vestas.”“
