Either lay charges and allow the accused to undergo a fair and transparent judicial trial or immediately release all individuals being held under Security Certificates.

Center for the Study of Human Rights
Haiti Human Rights Investigation, Nov. 11-21, 2004.

Haiti’s security and justice institutions fuel the cycle of violence. Summary executions are a police tactic, and even well-meaning officers treat poor neighborhoods seeking a democratic voice as enemy territory where they must kill or be killed. Haiti’s brutal and disbanded army has returned to join the fray. Suspected dissidents fill the prisons, their Constitutional rights ignored.
As voices for non-violent change are silenced by arrest, assassination, or fear, violent defense becomes a credible option.

Iraq-Irak: thousands still illegally detained and abused - des milliers encore détenus illégalement et abusés

Nouveau / New Torture in Iraq Still Routine, Report Says: Detainees beaten, hung by wrists, shocked by security forces, rights group finds, by Doug Struck (The Washington Post, 25 Jan, 2005, page A10).

Nouveau / New Iraq: Torture Continues at Hands of New Government: Police Systematically Abusing Detainees
Iraqi security forces are committing systematic torture and other abuses against people in detention, Human Rights Watch said in a new report released today. – Human Rights Watch, Jan. 25, 2005. Also in Arab Palestine & Deutsch Allemagne/Germany

Nouveau / New The New Iraq? Torture and ill-treatment of detainees in Iraqi custody
This 94-page report documents how unlawful arrest, long-term incommunicado detention, torture and other ill-treatment of detainees (including children) by Iraqi authorities have become routine and commonplace. Human Rights Watch conducted interviews in Iraq with 90 detainees, 72 of whom alleged having been tortured or ill-treated, particularly under interrogation. – Human Rights Watch, Jan. 25, 2005.

Grande Bretagne/United Kingdom - S. Georgia & Sandwich Is Siriel-Media comment – Based on reports from Human Rights Watch, the International Committee of the Red Cross and countless other independant reports, we can determine that an estimated 10 000 people are still detained in Irak following massive arbitrary arrests. We consider this urgent mostly because the near totality (well over 95% according to most observers) are detained for weeks or months without being charged of any crime and often without a reason based on law. Moreover, almost everyone interviewed, as confirmed by the Red Cross, say they have been submitted to humiliation and abuses during the first few days or weeks. That means that a rotation of about 10 000 innocent people are humiliated and abused right now in Iraq and that this has been going on for over a year.

France - Guyane/Guiana Fr. & Is. Reunion Commentaire du Siriel-Média – En nous basant sur les rapports de Human Rights Watch et du Comité international de la Croix-Rouge et d’innombrables autres rapports indépendants, nous pouvons affirmer qu’environ 10 000 personnes sont encore détenues en Irak après des arrestations arbitraires massives. Nous considérons que ceci est urgent surtout parce que la quasi-totalité (plus de 95% selon la plupart des observateurs-trices) sont détenues pendant des semaines ou des mois sans être accusées d’un crime et souvent sans motif raisonnable (sans raison valable en vertu du droit). De plus, comme l’atteste la Croix-Rouge, presque toutes les personnes interviewées affirment avoir été humiliées et abusées lors des premiers jours ou semaines. Ce qui signifie qu’une rotation d’environ 10 000 personnes innocentes sont humiliées et abusées et que cela dure depuis au moins une année.

On the Forthcoming Election in Iraq

Finally ! A credible analysis and intectually honest.
The first part describes the unhealthy political games played by Sunni, Shia, Washington, Iran, etc.
The second part expresses interesting and intelligent conclusions.

Excerpts :
Washington faced the “democracy paradox” (Huntington), created by the fact that the overwhelming majority of Arab Iraqis were—and are even more now—hostile to US control of their land, and hence any truly representative democratically elected government would seek to get rid of the occupation.

Those most active in trying to derail the elections are not really concerned by the fact that they will be held under continuing occupation. (...) This argument is a thin disguise for the fear of holding elections on the part of forces who know that they are condemned to be in a minority or to be completely marginalized in free elections.

What will Washington do after the January 30 elections? (...)

US marine openly reveals crimes of war during invasion and occupation
Envoyé par Siriel Admin le 2004 Dec 17 - 7:55pm
Reflections - Anglais | Irak | USA (États-Unis) | •Crime de guerre | •Crime c. paix (invasion) | Media: non profit

Marine Staff Segt. Jimmy Massey (Ret.), former Marine staff sergeant who was honorably discharged in December after serving 12 years, most recently in Iraq. He is speaking to us from his home in Waynesville, North Carolina in the Smokey Mountains.

Interview by Democracy Now, May 24th, 2004 [Choice between Audio, Video or Text]
Ex-U.S. Marine: I Killed Civilians in Iraq

Siriel-Media summary :
Jimmy Massey was the leader of a platoon during the invasion of Baghdad and the first months of the occupation. He describes the continuous murder of civilians by opening fire on any car that approached them when people were trying to flee Baghdad. By acting preventively, he admits to have also mistakenly opened fire on a peaceful group of protestors.

He was expulsed when, in Iraq, he declared that US military actions—including the depleted uranium they were leaving in Iraq— were becoming genocidal. He took a stand against killing civilians and so was honorably discharged.

Excerpt from Jimmy Massey’s conclusion :
[Our actions in Iraq] violated every rule of engagement that I have ever been taught, violated every rule of the Geneva Conventions that I have been taught. ... Alot of people ask me “Why are you speaking out?” ... The reason I am doing this is to heal myself and to possibly heal other marines… I would like to say to the marines… it’s up to you to look within your heart and do the right thing… don’t be scared to come out, the American public, they need to know. ... The President of the United States, he’s the one that authorized it…

It seems to us (M. Lessard, Siriel-Media) that soldiers who refuse to kill civilians should be promoted and it is those who still obey orders of wanton destruction and death that should be discharged.

LAW Joins Torture Case against Rumsfeld in Germany (December 15 2004)

Lawyers Against War has joined a criminal complaint filed in late November by the Center for Constitutional Rights in Germany against high-ranking U.S. officials.

The indictment charges Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and eleven others with war crimes and crimes against humanity contrary to Germany’s Criminal Code of Crimes against International Law (CCAIL) and the United Nations Convention Against Torture, for the torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

The CCAIL creates universal jurisdiction to prosecute suspected war criminals irrespective of their nationality or where they are located.  The consent of the German Federal Prosecutor is required to open an investigation.

Canada blocks torture charges against Bush

News-Current | Canada & Québec | USA (États-Unis) | ::Justice int'l & Droits humains:: | Communique

December 6th 2004, by Lawyers Against The War (Canada) www.lawyersagainstthewar.org

These charges were properly laid and backed up by powerful evidence. The [Canadian] government didn’t deny that evidence because it couldn’t deny it. Diplomatic immunity is purely procedural. It doesn’t affect the validity of the charges, only whether they can be proceeded with, for the time being(...). Even if Bush has immunity, it’s only temporary and it won’t shield him or anyone in his administration from Canadian law, or any other law, when they leave office. That the Canadian government would try to hush this up by hiding Bush behind diplomatic immunity was only to be expected. Paul Martin invited Bush here to ingratiate himself with the President, despite the President’s crimes against our laws and against international law(...)

COLOMBIE: « État Communautaire » et « Sécurité Démocratique »

Actualites: nouvelles | Colombia | USA (États-Unis) | •Impérialisme & Néocon. | ::Justice int'l & Droits humains:: | •Libertés individuelles | Media: non profit

La guerre en Colombie se nourrit actuellement de l’ambiance internationale belliqueuse et de l’appui inconditionnel des Etats-Unis à la politique de « Sécurité Démocratique et État Communautaire » du Président Uribe. Le conflit armé interne qui sévit en Colombie semble aujourd’hui voué à une prolongation indéterminée, puisque qu’il n’y a aucune volonté politique de la part du gouvernement d’opter pour la voie d’une négociation politique avec les guérillas, qui inclurait des solutions aux problèmes politiques, sociaux et économiques que connaît la Colombie. Le Président Alvaro Uribe Velez adoptant l’attitude arrogante de son homologue nord-américain George W. Bush, s’est lancé dans une chasse aux sorcières sans merci au nom de la sacro-sainte « lutte au terrorisme ».

Dans la nouvelle phase du paramilitarisme en Colombie, il est prévisible que les chefs paramilitaires se feront donner en échange de leur « démobilisation », des centaines d’hectares de terre fertile, terres qu’ils ont volées aux communautés qu’ils ont eux-mêmes déplacées, alors que les simples soldats se feront offrir du travail dans les méga-plantations de Palme africaine, implantées illégalement sur les territoires collectifs ancestraux de communautés paysannes afro-colombiennes…
