Pacto de Unidad/COB Como en los años 2000, 2001, 2002 y 2003, cuando los indígenas del Altiplano de La Paz renacieron a la lucha en las carreteras, bloqueando la política neoliberal y cercando a la ciudad sin dejar el paso de transporte ni alimentos, los dirigentes y dirigentas de Tupak Katari y Bartolina Sisa se reunieron en un ampliado, al mando de su organización departamental, para definir que están “en movimiento”.

Paraguay: Calidad democrática en peligro

Federico Tatter, 11.03.2005 17:15

En breves líneas y sin necesitad de abundar en cifras, siempre es necesario y saludable insistir en que la República del Paraguay, en sus casi doscientos años de vida independiente desde 1811 en adelante, no ha tenido más que uno o dos períodos breves de gobierno democrático formal y constitucionalmente sostenido, entendidos éstos dentro de sus limitaciones históricas e institucionales. Así, el proceso que comienza en febrero de 1989 y se extiende hasta la actualidad, dieciséis años para ser precisos, es el más largo período democrático en toda su historia, aunque sin estar exento de intentos de interrupción constitucional, conos de sombra, así como de un franco peligro de retroceso a un "status quo" semi o directamente dictatorial, como en el que hoy nos encontramos.

In the memory of Tom Hundall, &quot;Dr. Jack Shepard says; &quot;When will we realise that there can't be this many &quot;accidents&quot;?

Dr. Jack Shepard, 11.03.2005 12:18

Tom Hurndall and a photo of the crying Palestinian children he died helping Dr. Jack Shepard says, "When will we realise that there can't be this many "accidents"?

Tom Hurndall 1981-2004

This was the case in the killing of British ISM activist, Tom Hurndall, who was fatally shot in Rafah six days after Brian's injury. The internal command inquiry ruled that Tom was shot because of the presence of a Palestinian militant in his vicinity. The criminal investigation of the military police discovered that the soldier who fired the fatal shot and another soldier had lied in the internal inquiry. Charges of killing and interfering with the investigative procedure were brought.


Press Release : Major Breakthrough in case of Tom Hurndall Killing The campaign to obtain justice for Tom Hurndall has achieved an unprecedented breakthrough in its bid to get to the truth behind Tom's killing by an Israeli soldier last spring. The 21 year old British student photographer, was shot while he was shepherding children to safety in Rafah, Gaza .

In May this year Tom's family, through its lawyers - Avigdor Feldman and Michael Sfard, challenged the State Prosecution in respect of its decision not to release crucial evidence contained in the Military Police Inquiry Report.

They argued that ' there is a moral and legal obligation that whatever evidence has been collected and which has led to the indictment of a soldier for manslaughter should be made available 'to be independently tested '. This, they argued 'would be in line with the spirit of the consistent promises of 'Openness and Transparency' made by representatives of the Israeli Army and representatives of the Israeli Government including Ariel Sharon himself'.

The State Prosecution has been forced to take steps, unprecedented since the beginning of the Intifada in 2000, to make all of the evidence available to the family's lawyers. Sight of the evidence will be limited to the family's lawyers only and will not be directly available for family members or other parties to scrutinise. The State Prosecution has argued that this is to prevent a 'Media Trial'.

Crucially, the implications of this result are substantial and are expected to be ground breaking.

The lawyers will seek to address three crucial issues:

Is the current indictment against a soldier for manslaughter, the appropriate indictment or should the indictment be changed to murder?
Are there others who should be indicted in relation to the incident leading to the death of Tom Hurndall?
Are there systemic causes which led to the fatal shooting of Tom Hurndall and does responsibility for his death rest also with those higher up the chain of command?
A family friend and spokesman for the Tom Hurndall Foundation said: "This is a major step forward in our campaign to find out exactly how Tom died and who is responsible. The implications of getting access to this evidence are substantial. We took this to the Supreme Court when we discovered that promises from the Israeli Government of transparency and openness were ill founded."

He said: "Fourteen eye-witness statements gathered by the family, indicate that multiple shots were fired at a group of 20 children playing on a mound. Soldiers were firing above the heads and between the feet of the children - three of whom were frozen to the spot in terror. We have photographs of children fleeing from the shooting. In contrast the Israeli Army claims that there was a single shot – the shot that fatally wounded Tom Hurndall."

The trial in Israel, of Sgt Idier Wahid Taysir, who is facing six charges in connection with the killing of Tom Hurndall, is scheduled to resume on 11 th ,12 th August with additional dates scheduled on 22 nd August, 12 th & 23 rd September, 12 th & 28 th October and 18 th & 28 th November .

The charges for which Sgt Idier Wahid Taysir is currently indicted are manslaughter; two counts of obstruction of justice; incitement to false testimony; false testimony & improper conduct. He has entered a plea of not guilty to all charges.

The trial is taking place at a Military Court within the Military base at Castina Junction in Ashkalon, near Tel Aviv.

The 19 year old brother of Tom Hurndall – Billy Hurndall, last month learned that he would not be allowed to enter Israel to attend the trial. In a letter from the Israeli Ministry of Interior, the family's lawyers were informed that Billy 'represented a security risk' to Israel and would not be allowed access into the country. Although the Ministry of Interior refused to give reason for this classification, it is understood that the refusal is based on Billy's visit to the Occupied Territories to meet members of the International Solidarity Movement following the incident last spring.

The family are outraged at this decision, which removes Billy's basic right to attend the trial of his brother's killer. They said "For Billy to attend the trial represents more than just the chance to see justice done, but a very real need to obtain some sort of closure in what has been a most horrific period in his life." The family plan to appeal this decision in the courts.
