‘Saudi Arabia wants to lead the UN Human Rights Council, which raises anger among activists who fear an erode of the Council’s credibility. An “abomination, and cynical by a nation that beheads people on public squares,” said a human rights organization in a statement on Wednesday evening.
There has been rumors for a while that Saudi Arabia wants to lead the UN’s highest body for defense of human rights. Now it appears the rumors have been confirmed by several diplomatic sources. It has had human rights organizations to react with pure rage outbursts.
Saudi Arabia is one of the world’s worst repressive regimes with massive violations of human rights, according to Amnesty, Human Rights Watch and the UN itself. One notable example is Saudi blogger Raif Badawi who was sentenced to ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes for having started a site for political debate. In addition, the country is sharply criticized for the ongoing attacks against Yemen, where the ruthless bombing of civilians is equated with war crimes.’
‘On the 70th anniversary of the fall of Nazi Germany, fascism is far from dead. As Yemen bleeds under Saudi Arabia’s grand war, it is really the annihilation of one people we are seeing play out – the Zaidis of Yemen.
If Saudi Arabia, a regional super-power strong with its trillions of petrodollars, has ruled unchallenged over the Middle East and to an extent over the Islamic world, it has done so at the expense of people’s freedom and prosperity. Yemen, more than any other country in the region has suffered under its powerful and rich tyrant of a neighbor.
Coerced into assuming the role of a passive vassal, Yemen was prevented from rising to its true potential through a clever network of bribery, religious sponsoring and social engineering.’

The wealthy elites own all corporate global media and suppress us without the use of force with deep indoctrination mechanisms of propaganda, a powerful explosion of corrupt and unclean wisdom on a daily basis.
Our hidden ruling elites cause political turbulence, create civic destabilisation, assassinate the family, disrupt and destroy democracy for us all, cause legitimate rages across the world and criminalise us for reacting.
Forcing an uniformed public to make irrational decisions, hoarding valuable and essential knowledge so we make inappropriate decisions, we are dispossessed of true knowledge and are disempowered because of it.
Now after manufacturing violence, terrorism, civic conflicts, enraged racism, they frown with scorn at us with wilful arrogance to offer their corrupt dark minds to impose their draconian rules of what human rights should be for us.
We must not stand in our stance of toleration and allow ravenous eyes of aggression dictate our human rights by those enmeshed with violent, Orwellian, tyrannical, disfigured mind sets.
The beheading of our civil liberties from ruling elites who hold no empathy, are psychopathic, sociopathic at least, who are themselves the weaponisation of dark powers.

‘Obeying the law will no longer be enough to guarantee you are able to live peacefully in the UK without harassment from the state.
David Cameron is set to announce a string of new powers that are seen by many as a challenge to our basic civil liberties.
This sentence from the Tory leader is particularly chilling:
“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens ‘as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone’.”‘
Street Democracy writes:
Political leaders are ‘figures of fiends’ legally trespassing over our human rights with the wilful arrogance they hold over us, that they can, should and will scrap them.
The soulless suits of blue vicious jaws, vaunt allowed to manipulate the controlled manufactured terrorism the oligarchs game of chess has unleashed upon societies. To bully us into submission with emotional blackmail of ‘terrorists’, ‘death, murder’ and ‘lock them up but can’t as they’re saturated with ‘human rights’.
They want our human rights annihilated so they can control us with draconian rules with militarised police state mechanisms to protect their masters and save themselves from societal rebellion.
The awaken to this scam already know.
It’s the sleepy public who are more dangerous now.
Our oligarchical leaders are radically anti-democratic and see the working class as a serving class, all education based upon servitude rather than free thinking abstract minds.
The clues are a militarised society, Big Brother, Big Pharma and a medical police state, less freedom is everywhere you turn.
Draconian rules, with a ceaseless expansion of a ‘Hunger Game Society’ with community rules turning society into one ‘giant open air detention centre’.
To imprison ourselves further, eradicates our freedoms further. We cannot allow manufactured bullies whether elites or rogues upon our streets take our freedoms. By Debbie Simmons-Street Democracy
Michael Gove, the new justice secretary, is to press ahead with plans to scrap the Human Rights Act which could see Britain pull out of the European convention on human rights (ECHR) if the reforms are rejected by Strasbourg.
Conservative party sources said that Gove, who was promoted to the post even though he has previously voiced his support for capital punishment, will implement human rights reforms that had been blocked in the coalition by the Liberal Democrats.
The scrapping of the human rights act, a pledge included in the Tory manifesto, is one of the measures to be included in the prime minister’s plans for the first 100 days, when the Queen’s speech is delivered on 27 May.
The plans, which would see the human rights act replaced by a British bill of rights, would mean that the European court of human rights would no longer be binding over the UK’s supreme court. The ECHR would also no longer be able to order a change to UK law although British citizens would still be entitled to appeal to the Strasbourg-based court.
Gove is making clear that, free from the constraints of the coalition, he will implement in full the plans drawn up last year by his predecessor, Chris Grayling. Under those plans, Britain would withdraw from the ECHR if the Council of Europe, the human rights watchdog that upholds the convention, rejects the proposals. The Council of Europe is separate from the EU.
Lost: A mystery teenager who does not know his name, age or nationality has been discovered after he escaped traffickers (posed by model)

The darkness eats the mind of the human race and with ease many succumb the evil it enforces. How else can a human being steal a child, abuse this child for years with no remorse of guilt?
Or how else can one use this child as a slave and sleep well each night and live as if happy in the outside world with such a sordid secret?
However, he could just be remaining silent to gain access into the UK with full benefits, yet we know slavery is endemic across the globe and in the UK we hear of such atrocities it is difficult now to know what to believe.
Our world is a mess and the poor suffer because of it is one thing for sure we know. For more on this story click here for the Daily Mail or continue reading.
A mystery foreign teenager who does not know his name, age or nationality and has never been to school has been found in a city centre, a charity said today.
The young man is believed to have fled a house he was trafficked to in London when he was a small child and was discovered at a bus station in Coventry.
The mystery youth – believed in be in his late teens – heard someone speaking a language he understood and asked for help, and they put him in touch with staff at the Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre.
All he had in his possession when he arrived in the Midlands was a letter from a solicitor saying he was ‘stateless’.
He told staff he did not know his name, age, or country of origin.
He said he had been trafficked into the country.
Paul Wheeler, from the charity, said: ‘As far as we can tell he could have fallen out of the sky.
‘He doesn’t know his own name or his country of origin. We don’t know how long he has been in the UK – all we know is that he tells us he got on a bus in London and arrived in Coventry.’
‘We have been following the suspicious and alarming case of Ibrahim Todashev since his violent death at the hands of the FBI (the same FBI who are carrying out the conflict-of-interest investigation and blocking his autopsy report).
Now it seems that all leads continue to be silenced.
The Boston Globe reports on the outrageous developments…’

Not according to the all seeing all knowing Henry Smith MP from Crawley. Please see:
According to Henry Smith MP, the Prime Minister David Cameron will not attempt such thing. However, all of those who are politically awake will know this is exactly what the ruling elite want.
They have shaken democracy by her neck, decimated disabled people’s human rights, social housing tenants have been demonised beyond recognition.
We know students have no rights, we know the millions of protesters standing up to save the NHS are being silenced, where are their rights of opinion?
We know the disabled have no rights when they have their benefits slashed, are threatened with Bedroom Tax evictions and have been thrown to the wolves by government. Some narcissistic place called ATOS, that criminalises disabled people for daring ‘not to be fit for work’, when they can blink, to prove otherwise!
We live in a corporate democracy with corporate values that are trying hard to exterminate human values, and human rights gets in the way. So they stage some extremist with foul mouth rant about something and nothing, and get people angry to say ‘throw him out’. Only suddenly Human Rights matter, and they can’t throw him out.
Staged! Complete theatre and as theatrical as you can get with so much obvious falseness and rubbish I am amazed the whole nation can’t see it.
They want to abandon Human Rights, so lets stage some rebels we can’t kick out of the country because of Human Rights. When the people of Britain, those who are asleep say ‘we don’t want them in our country, we don’t feel safe with terrorists down our streets’, the government will say ‘we can’t because of Human Rights’.
‘I know lets get rid of Human Rights, so we can kick out all terrorists in Britain’. And the sleepy people say ‘yeahhhhhh’!
This is the game they play. To ban guns get hypnotised men to shoot randomly in public and then get a public emotional response to ban all guns. To get war, stage mass killings of chemical weapons, and get the people emotionally charged up to attack for peace or democracy or whatever!
So the Tories want to ban Human Rights, so lets get stage someone to pretend to hate Britain, and the emotions of the sleepy British people will say ‘yes’, anything to get rid of him.
Before you know, BOOM! We in Britain have no Human Rights, no rights of any kind. Sitting ducks to a dictatorship, tyrant or bloody minded monarchy. This is a picture of us if we loose our Human Rights, running fast to our doom.

‘Britain could quit the European Convention on Human Rights so it can legally “chuck out” people threatening the country and its way of life, UK PM David Cameron said. Critics doubted Cameron’s honesty, saying such move would mean quitting the EU.
In the first public statement of its kind, the British prime minister told BBC1 that he was ready to cut ties with the Strasbourg court, to prevent it from interfering with British justice.
“I’m less interested in which convention we are signed up to. As Prime Minister, I want to know I can keep our country safe,” Cameron said.’
A face of evil: Theresa May wants to take away your human rights and leave you at the mercy of government repression.
Street Democracy writes:
Evil in print will be the law designed by unprincipled ‘iron fists of blue’ to eradicate our Human Rights. This sounds like a ‘total control’ mechanism by the ‘out of touch’ Tory slave masters wanting to totally dominate us as a race of people.
This is where you must get angry. This is violation of you and I!
They have denied our freedoms in many areas but now feel that confident they wish to scrap the rest.
No voice, no choice and their power of pure Tory torture to do what ever they see fit. Our political elite’s preferred method is Draconian law of enslavement which they will be unleashed ferociously upon us.
Prime Minister David Cameron,
10, Downing Street,

Explain to this man that we don’t want our Human Rights denied, just in case a tyrant happens to get into power and then we will be at the mercy of a dictator. It is for our protection of course, the rights of the citizens of Britain and our children’s future.
Tory plans to take away your human rights are moving ahead with Theresa May announcing that they would scrap the Human Rights Act and withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights if they win the 2015 general election, “in the national interest”.
In whose interest? Not yours. Certainly not mine. She’s quite clearly confusing minority Tory interests with those of this country. They do that a lot.
If you want to get humour from the situation, Mrs May made her announcement at a conference organised to find ways of winning broader support in 2015. How badly off-track can you go?
Rallying against the bedroom tax in Leeds last month (Pic: Socialist Worker)
Benefit slashing Tory minister Iain Duncan Smith called for an extra £3 billion of welfare cuts on Tuesday of this week. Ministers were asked to propose savings for chancellor George Osborne’s next spending review. He aims to cut an extra £11.5 billion. Duncan Smith offered to protect spending on the police and army by cutting from the poor claiments his department covers. His ideas include denying housing benefit to people under 25. Duncan Smith wants young adults to move back in with their parents if they can’t afford the rent themselves.
But parents of grown-up children were among those targeted by his bedroom tax. And some people have left abusive families—or taken Duncan Smith’s own advice to “get on the bus” out of areas with few jobs. Thousands of poor council or housing association tenants are behind on their rent thanks to benefit cuts linked to their “spare” bedrooms. Now landlords have begun sending threatening letters to tenants warning they may be evicted if they can’t pay. This includes Labour councils, and Green Party-run Brighton and Hove which last month voted not to evict anyone for the unfair tax.
“I feel like a turkey that voted for Christmas,” one tenant in Labour-run Barnsley told Socialist Worker. “They’ve sent us a really nasty letter. They’re trying to scare us with court costs on top of the arrears. “They know I have a disability and need an extra room. But the Labour council is pursuing a ConDem policy.” Most tenants’ arrears so far are very small. And despite the letters, landlords are a long way from being able to evict people over the bedroom tax.
They hope that by intimidating people now they can make them pay before the debt gets too big—or get tenants out of their homes. But for many, keeping up with the rent now that their benefits no longer pay for it would mean going without food. Most have not left their homes despite the intimidation. They are right to stay.
The ‘Bedroom Tax’ has swept across Britain like a hurricane blowing illogical and harmful policies to hit the poor, causing a financial massacre for those claiming HB. Heavily discriminated people, those claiming HB, with a spare bedroom have been treated by the Government harshly and unsettling the already troubled minds of social housing tenants of those financially struggling.
Poverty brings heavy burdens, heavy weighed down minds, heavy eyes and life is often too heavy to handle. A broken person has multiple scarcity issues, food scarcity, financial scarcity, job or employment scarcity, no social mobility, a scarcity in options, choice and opportunities. We have land scarcity to deal with so no new council homes are being built and the poorest are being punished for it. Iain Duncan Smith with his cronies are like vultures tearing down upon the lower classes, it isn’t class war, it is class decimation and the ‘Bedroom Tax’ is just one of the multiple ways of destroying the Welfare State to effect us and destroy us too.
Our voices are trampled upon, with no encouragement of political innovation or expression by any public trustee. All public trustees include politicians but also council workers, who right now are in ‘breach of trust’ towards their responsibilities. To protect the very people they are crucifying, taking important monies away for basic survival in this man made corrupt capitalist system with a biased man made economic book of control to go with it.
We have to let our political inspirations grow and not be trodden on. We are a great body of humanity full of dreams, hopes and desires that hold common sense and specialised common knowledge that politicians can only dream of having. We are more qualified to politically activate our communities and they are not. We have the power, they do not. We have the ability to orchestrate a healthy local socio-economic political agenda and generate policies that fit, are justified, balanced and logical to elevate our town, they clearly simply can’t. We will not let them shatter our lives, so we need to stand firm and say ‘no, stop screwing with our lives and let us take over!
