IRR50 and the revolutionary act

Thursday, 14 April 2022 — Institute of Race Relations

Announced today the deal with Rwanda (whose authorities British officials accused last year of killings, disappearances and torture), to relocate asylum seekers there, spells the end of the Refugee Convention in the UK and a return to the 1930s and ‘40s, when desperate refugees from Nazism were forced to seek sponsors and prove that they would not be a charge on public funds in order to get visas. The 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights, declaring the universal right to ‘seek and enjoy asylum’, and the 1951 Refugee Convention, were meant to put an end to that, recognising the need for refugees to flee without papers. But the deathly Australian ‘offshoring’ model, which until now only Israel and Denmark have sought to copy, inverts the meaning of asylum – and makes a mockery of the parliamentary process, where the Lords are fighting tooth and nail to preserve asylum rights.

The Music of Forgetting

Wednesday, 13 April, 2022 — Edward Curtin

By Mr. Z

I remember when we first came to this small Mexican island in the Caribbean.  The pace of life was very slow and time seemed to spiral, not chug straight ahead.  It seemed as if local people far outnumbered visitors, most of whom came for the off-beat rhythm of life.  The days floated by as did the people along the narrow streets, in and out of the little cafes and aqua water as if everyone were a sea bird soaring on the up notes and dancing down with the swaying palms.  Celestial music filled the air.

Here’s what happened in Bucha

Thursday, 14 April 2022

A millionaire Nazi disposed of corpses from the SBU at the behest of British intelligence


The provocation itself was devised by British intelligence – MI6. The British advisers gave the command to the management of the SBU counterintelligence department, and from there it was redirected to Serhiy Korotkikh – “Botsman” – a neo-Nazi, murderer and dollar millionaire. This information was provided by former MP of four convocations of the Verkhovna Rada Oleh Tsaryov.

He recalled that he managed to “predict” the provocation itself. Back on 3 April, Tsarev published a post about Bucha with the title: “SBU prepares cynical provocation with corpses to accuse Russia of war crimes”. The SBU had two objectives: disposing of the bodies of previously murdered undesirables and setting up an international tribunal in the West to investigate “Russian military atrocities”.

💬 To prove that this was a monstrous provocation (, we need to identify all those found in the mass grave in Bucha,” Tsarev believes.

Ever Fonseca Cuba Homenaje a la paz 1970Ever Fonseca (Cuba), Homenaje a la paz (‘Homage to Peace’), 1970.

Dear friends,

Greetings from the desk of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research.

While the United States began its illegal war against Iraq in 2003, Cuba’s President Fidel Castro spoke in Buenos Aires, Argentina. ‘Our country does not drop bombs on other peoples’, he said, ‘nor does it send thousands of planes to bomb cities … Our country’s tens of thousands of scientists and doctors have been educated on the idea of saving lives’. Cuba had an army, yes, but not an army for war; Castro called it ‘an army of white coats’. Most recently, Cuba’s Henry Reeve Brigade of medical practitioners have selflessly worked around the world to help stem the tide of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“During the special operation in Ukraine, it was established that US scientists from a laboratory in Merefa (Kharkov Region) were testing potentially dangerous biological drugs on patients of the regional clinical psychiatric hospital No 3 in Kharkov between 2019 and 2021.

“Persons with mental disorders were selected for the experiments on the basis of their age, nationality and immune status. Special forms were used to record the results of 24-hour patient monitoring. The information was not entered into the hospital database and the staff of the medical institution signed a non-disclosure agreement.

“In January 2022, the laboratory in Merefa was shut down and all equipment and medication were moved to western Ukraine.

“There are a number of witnesses to these inhuman experiments, whose names we cannot disclose for the sake of their safety.”
