Journalists in Turkey face up to 43 years in prison

Background summary:

  • Your only right is to remain silent. If you say anything, you could be imprisoned for decades without so much as a sham trial.
  • “[Erogan’s] government closed down by decree over 160 media outlets, most linked to the Gülen movement or Kurdish media. The number of journalists in pretrial detention on the basis of their writing and journalistic activities surged to 144 by mid-November, making Turkey once again a world leader in jailing journalists.”
  • Currently, more than a  dozen journalists at Cumhuriyet, a leading opposition newspaper in Turkey, are charged with aiding a terrorist organization, and face up to 43 years in prison.
  • More than 160 journalists have already been imprisoned in Turkey without trial, according to Reporters Without Borders (RSF).

UK Equally Guilty of Saudi War Crimes in Yemen

– UK Report # 39 –

Brits choose to remain deafeningly silent, while war crimes are being committed in their names

Background Summary:

UK approved £283m of arms sales to Saudis after airstrike on Yemen funeral

“The British government approved £283m of arms sales to Saudi Arabia in the six months after a Saudi airstrike on a funeral that killed scores of people and was criticised [sic] by the UN, figures reveal.

“The airstrike, on 8 October 2016, hit a funeral hall in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, killing 140 people and injuring hundreds more, in one of the bloodiest attacks in the two-year Saudi-led campaign in Yemen.”

The World Health Organization has recorded 1,828 deaths from cholera since the outbreak in April, one of the largest outbreaks since records began in 1949.

Some 360,000 suspected cholera cases have been recorded in just three months since the outbreak started in April, making the outbreak  the largest ever recorded in any country in a single year since records began in 1949.

About 20 million people need humanitarian assistance across Yemen, while three and a half million have fled their homes since the outbreak of the ongoing conflict in September 2014.

The war has pushed the country to the verge of famine

“It has precipitated a crisis which has left 7 million people on the brink of starvation,” said Oxfam.

“Those countries providing the arms and military support, such as the US and the UK, are fueling a war that is causing wide-spread suffering and tipping a whole nation towards a catastrophe. It is hard to imagine how much more Yemen can take before it collapses entirely.”

“In 2016, Saudi Arabia spent nearly $3 billion on arms from the world’s major arms exporters.”
