Justice for Jhonny Silva! Vigil Outside Colombian Embassy, Tues (22nd) from 3pm

20-11-2005 02:36

Jhonny Silva
On 22nd September 2005, 21-year-old chemistry student Jhonny Silva was shot dead by Colombian police, who had illegally entered the campus of Valle University in Southwest Colombia after a student protest. Jhonny, who suffered from polio and so was unable to run when the police began firing live ammunition at students, was shot in the neck at point blank range.

A British delegation of students and academics was present at the student protest and witnessed the violent police methods. The members of the delegation have committed themselves to working with students and staff at Valle University to campaign for Jhonny's killers to be brought to justice. The Colombian state has an extremely poor record of investigating and prosecuting the crimes of the public forces and paramilitaries.

Bagdad Irradiée
Depuis les essais en grandeur nature d’armes à uranium appauvri (UA) dans le Golfe en 1991, chaque nouvelle « guerre » est l’occasion de tester ces armes à des puissances de plus en plus grandes. C’est ainsi que des milliers de tonnes d’UA sont déversées sur Irak par la coalition anglo-américaine depuis 2003. Un véritable génocide se déroule silencieusement en Irak, à une échelle jamais connue à ce jour.
