Hostages of Israeli revenge in the Gaza Strip: Testimonies of 100 released Palestinian detainees reveal crimes of torture, cruel treatment


Palestinian Territory - In a new report released Tuesday, Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor documents the testimonies of about 100 released Palestinian detainees. These testimonies confirm that the Israeli authorities and army committed horrific crimes of arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance, torture, and inhuman and cruel treatment against thousands of Palestinian civilians who were arrested as part of Israel’s genocide in the Gaza Strip, ongoing since 7 October 2023.

In a 50-plus-page report titled “Hostages of Israeli Revenge in the Gaza Strip”, Euro-Med Monitor brings to light the widespread practice of arbitrary collective and individual arrests by Israeli forces against civilians in the Strip. Those arrested during Israel’s military incursions and its ground attacks on cities, camps, and residential neighbourhoods throughout the Strip include women, children, the elderly, and displaced individuals.

The report is based on statements, testimonies, and in-person interviews that the Euro-Med Monitor team conducted with 100 detainees who had been released from Israeli army custody following ground operations in different parts of the Gaza Strip. Approximately half of the recently-released detainees are men under 50, while the remaining 17 are elderly men; 22 are women and four are children. Additional information was also gathered from reports released by the relevant authorities, local and international media, and human rights organisations.

 The information gathered concludes that the Israeli army routinely commits widespread crimes of arbitrary arrest, enforced disappearance, premeditated murder, torture, inhuman treatment, sexual violence, and denial of a fair trial. It also confirms that the Israeli army used physical and psychological torture against Palestinian civilian detainees, including beatings with the intent to kill, sexual violence, electrocution, blindfolding, and long-term hand and foot shackles. Israel also denied them access to food and medical care, including critical and life-saving care, spat and urinated on detainees, and committed other cruel and degrading acts, in addition to psychological abuse including rape and death threats, verbal harassment, and other forms of sexual violence.

CPP condemns scheduled US-AFP aerial war games



Press Release
Information Bureau
Communist Party of the Philippines

May 24, 2024

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today condemned the second series of the Cope Thunder-24, war games between the Philippine Air Force (PAF) and the US Air Force, slated for June 17-28. The schedule of the war games, set to be held at Basa Air Base in Floridablanca, Pampanga and Villamor Air Base in Pasay City, was announced by PAF Col. Ma. Consuelo Castillo last May 22.

"These war games must be condemned as aerial terrorism as these further promote the continuing campaign of aerial bombing across the country which has terrorized hundreds of thousands of people across the past years," said CPP Chief Information Officer Marco L. Valbuena. "The war games only fuel the Filipino people's growing animosity for the US forces and the AFP for normalizing aerial terrorism."

The CPP official further said these joint exercises are being carried out with outright contempt for the country's sovereignty. "The presence of US troops, jet fighters, naval vessels and other weapons further drag the country into the US imperialist conflict with China."

"The upcoming war exercises Cope Thunder, coming at the heels of the recent large-scale Balikatan war games, puts a clear target on the country, in case an open armed conflict between the US and China breaks out," added Valbuena.

"Amid worsening and growing poverty, it is grossly obscene considering that Marcos will squander billions of pesos from public funds for the said 10-day event," Valbuena pointed out. He insisted that public funds should instead be spent to aide the Filipino peasantry and the rural population severely affected by the dry season amid the El Niño phenomenon and for comprehensive preparation in the face of impending La Niña.

PAF's Col. Castillo earlier announced that an estimated 900 PAF personnel and 25 US Pacific Air Forces personnel will participate in the upcoming Cope Thunder war games.

The first part of the said wargames last April 8-19 saw the participation of 250 US airmen and 12 US aircraft. Residents of Gattaran, Sto Niño, and Lasam in Cagayan said low-flying jet fighters caused mayhem in schools especially in daycare centers and kindergarten schools sending children scampering back to their homes. Infants were also awakened, livelihoods were disrupted, and even domestic animals were frightened and distressed.

Residents complained that they were not informed in advance, causing people to run and stumble in extreme fear since the exhibitions were staged right near schools and barangay halls. A mother said her 7-year-old son prevented her from leaving the house fearing she would be hit by a bomb. They also complained about the extremely loud rumble and deafening noise of jet fighters. “My chest felt like it was going to explode when it passed over us,” said one.

The Cope Thunder war games was revived in 2023 with the push of the Marcos regime since its termination in 1990.

"The nonsensical war games has been dead for more than 30 years already, why can't it stay that way? The Filipino people despise the Cope Thunder and US presence in the Philippines," Valbuena ended.

pc 24 maggio- Uniamoci nell'appello dei comunisti maoisti in India per fermare la guerra di Modi contro il suo stesso popolo!

 da ORE12 Controinformazione rossoperaia del 22/05


La repressione, i piani genocidi dei paesi imperialisti e dei loro regimi non hanno limiti. La Palestina è la madre di tutti i genocidi e in questa fase storica rappresenta tutti i popoli sottoposti a genocidi, massacri, con l'intenzione dei governi e dei regimi di servire gli interessi dell'imperialismo, dei ricchi, delle multinazionali. Per questo raccogliamo e va raccolto l'appello dei compagni indiani.

In India, il paese attualmente più grande nel mondo, è governato da un regime fascista indù capeggiato da Modi che sarà anche lui al G7 in Puglia (tanto per capire che noi in Puglia non ci faremo mancare niente). Il regime di Modi sta conducendo ripetute operazioni per cancellare la lotta di liberazione dei proletari e delle masse indiane che ha una lunga storia, molto più lunga di questo fanatico fascista indù come Modi, la storia della ribellione di Naxaliti in India, la prima ribellione che raccolse nel mondo la voce forte e chiara della Cina rivoluzionaria e infiammò le campagne innanzitutto, ma non solo le campagne, in India. Quest'eroica battaglia storica del movimento di liberazione indiano è guidato dal proletariato e dal suo partito, il Partito comunista dell'India maoista, che attualmente per numeri e composizioni è il partito comunista più grande del mondo, un Partito comunista di quelli veri, perché tutto il resto è feccia revisionista e riformista, traditori del proletariato.

Modi ha un compito specifico per servire le classi dominanti del suo paese tra i quali vi è Mittal, tanto per capire, l'infame padrone indiano dell’ex Acciaierie Ilva fino a poche settimane fa. Lo Stato fascista indù continua la sua campagna - che anche qui si può definire genocida - contro le popolazioni indigene dell'India, in particolare contro le popolazioni tribali dell'India centrale per conto delle classi dominanti indiane tra cui ci sono grandi multinazionali come Mittal, Tata e Jindal, di cui nel nostro paese, in Europa, conosciamo le opere.

Queste classi dominanti indiane devono fermare il movimento rivoluzionario popolare e quindi mettono in campo tutto l'arsenale armato per eliminare questo movimento, per liberare l'India dai maoisti.

Ma è impossibile perché, come ha detto la grande scrittrice indiana, Arundhati Roy: chi sono i maoisti? i maoisti sono le masse, il movimento che rappresenta l'organizzazione delle masse, la loro aspirazione a una rivoluzione di nuova democrazia e una democrazia popolare che si trasformi in socialismo. 

Il regime fascista indù dice: “dobbiamo liberare l'India dai maoisti entro la fine del 2024”. L'ha detto ogni anno, ogni anno pensa di liberare il paese dai maoisti e i maoisti sono sempre lì e infliggono colpi al suo regime, alle classi dominanti.

Però non bisogna sottovalutare questa operazione repressiva perché il 24 è un anno cruciale è l'anno in cui l'India, consacrata anche al G7 di Puglia, ritrova il suo posto nel mondo per partecipare alla guerra imperialista a fianco degli Stati Uniti contro la Cina, innanzitutto, ma per gli interessi che riguardano il nuovo ruolo che l'India vuole assolvere nel sistema mondo, nel Sud Asia, nel Pacifico.

Quindi è seria la minaccia che voglia "bonificare" il fronte interno.

Siamo in piena campagna elettorale in India, Modi cerca un plebiscito con elezioni fasulle e truccate in mano alla corruzione, come in tutte le parti del mondo, ma in India più di ogni altro, vista la tradizione delle classi dominanti indiane.

L'attuale campagna genocida si chiama “Operazione Kagaar” e sta producendo morti: ad Aapatola 29 compagni disarmati sono stati massacrati brutalmente e le forze armate hanno perpetrato altre tre stragi, in aprile nelle foreste di Takametta e Karkur, abitanti della tribù Mariah, sono stati barbaramente uccisi mentre esercitavano i loro rituali tradizionali. E tra di essi sono stati uccisi rivoluzionari, combattenti, rivoluzionari proletari e comunisti, compagni come noi, della stessa nostra ideologia.

Siamo tutti indiani! siamo tutti maoisti indiani! e chi vi parla ne è ampio sostenitore pubblico, con un Comitato Internazionale di Sostegno alla Guerra popolare in India, presente anche nel nostro paese e anche a Taranto, una delle città-chiave del G7 in cui si consumerà la farsa o la tragedia del G7 di guerra.

Questi massacri sono descritti nell'appello dei compagni che può essere letto nei siti di proletari comunisti e sul prossimo numero di ORE12 Controinformazione rossoperaia che denuncia che le masse indigene tribali sono in preda al panico, terrorizzati nella foresta, perché la polizia usa ogni tipo di bombardamenti, con i droni per colpire la povera gente - questo sì come in Palestina! -, le forze armate mostrano i cadaveri degli indigeni con accanto l'arma tradizionale che avevano e li usano come trofei. Come in Palestina! Le forze armate uccidono più spietatamente delle belve feroci. Come in Palestina!

Per questo l'Operazione Kaagar è la forma in India - certo, in scala - del genocidio in atto ai danni del popolo palestinese.

Concludono i compagni indiani: “compagni e amici della rivoluzione indiana all'estero - cioè si rivolgono a noi che siamo, oserei dire, più che amici della rivoluzione indiana - tutte queste atrocità perpetrate dallo Stato indiano contro il suo stesso popolo mostrano che i genocidi aumenteranno nei prossimi giorni.

I media in India e nel mondo e i grandi giornali in Italia tacciono su tutto questo. I popoli indigeni in India sono impegnati a proteggere le risorse naturali del paese dai saccheggi delle grandi compagnie imperialiste e nazionali. Fanno lotte simili ai No Tav, ai No Tap, che ci sono nel nostro paese, alle lotte contro le devastazioni territoriali e ambientali.

In un momento così catastrofico i compagni indiani ci dicono di opporci con il massimo della lotta e della solidarietà internazionale. Quindi il Partito comunista dell'India maoista fa appello affinché si intraprendono iniziative e azioni contro questa operazione.

Sconfiggiamo questo attacco fascista al popolo indiano!

Sosteniamo la rivoluzione indiana fino in fondo!

Questo appello viene da noi raccolto e diffuso in tutta Italia. E chiaramente faremo sentire la voce di quest'appello nelle prossime manifestazioni che si svolgono per la Palestina innanzitutto, nelle università, nelle piazze. Faremo arrivare questa voce con il nostro giornale, ORE12 Controinformazione rossoperaia, alle fabbriche. Porteremo questa battaglia nel cuore della contestazione del G7 di Puglia dal 13 al 15 giugno.

Arrets de manifestants propalestiniens en Usa - Australia

 

USA: 19 manifestants pro-palestiniens arrêtés à Philadelphie

La police de Philadelphie a arrêté 19 manifestants pro-palestiniens, dont sept étudiants, à l’université de Pennsylvanie vendredi 17 mai en soirée lors d’une manifestation sur le campus. Les manifestants avaient pénétré dans le Fisher-Bennett Hall et tentaient de l’occuper et de s’y barricader. 12 manifestants ont reçu des contraventions pour refus de se disperser et refus d’obéir aux ordres de la police, puis ont été relâchés. Sept d’entre eux sont toujours en garde à vue et attendent d’être inculpés, dont un pour agression contre un policier. La police de Penn a retrouvé des outils de crochetage de serrure et des boucliers métalliques fabriqués à partir de bidons d’huile. Les portes de sortie du bâtiment abritant les départements d’anglais, de musique et d’études cinématographiques avaient été déjà été bloquées et barricadées avec du mobilier. Cetteconfrontation a eu lieu une semaine après que l’université, avec l’aide des forces de l’ordre locales, a évacué un campement de manifestants sur College Green.

USA: 40 arrestations à une manifestation pro-palestinienne à New-York

Des manifestants pro-palestiniens se sont heurtés à des agents de la police de New York lors d’une manifestation houleuse à Brooklyn samedi, entraînant au moins une douzaine d’arrestations. La foule en colère, forte de quelques centaines de personnes, a repousé les policiers qui tentaient de la faire avancer vers le trottoir à Bay Ridge. Les policiers ont fini par plaquer et arrêter plusieurs manifestants. Ils les ont traîné de force à l’écart.

Australie: Arrestations à une manifestation pro-palestinienne

Six personnes ont été arrêtées à Melbourne, où des militants se sont heurtés à la police qui séparait deux manifestations rivales. Une manifestation pro-israélienne (naturellement sous l’étiquette « contre l’antisémitisme ») organisée par le groupe chrétien sioniste « International Christian Embassy Jerusalem », faisait face à une manifestation pro-palestinienne . Un cordon de la police de  l’État de Victoria séparait les milliers de manifestants. Des heurts ont néanmoins eu lieu et six manifestants pro-palestiniens ont été arrêtés.

Let us defeat this fascist onslaught on the people of India and advance the Indian Revolution to new heights

 Dear Comrades,Red Salutes!


The Brahmanic Hindutva State continues its genocidal campaigns on indigenous people
of India particularly on the central Indian tribal people in a much ruthless manner. The Indian
ruling classes, worried by the revolutionary movement of the people, extols all its armed
machineries to eliminate the revolutionary movement in this mission of “Maoist-Free India” by
the end of year 2024. In pursuit of its aim, RSS-BJP fascist forces have steadfastly intensified
their ongoing genocidal campaign in the name of “Operation Kagaar”. After Aapatola genocide
on 16th of April, in which the Indian armed forces brutally killed 11 unarmed comrades and 6
injured comrades out of 29 comrades, the armed forces carried out three more genocides. On
30th of April, in Tekametta and Kakur forests of Chhattisgarh-Maharashtra border region, 4
villagers of the indigenous Mariah tribe were killed by the state armed forces in a barbaric
manner while they were performing their traditional rituals. Six revolutionary cadres and PLGA
fighters were killed in this encounter. One senior most comrade, Cheemala Narsaiah (Joganna
(66) who was Regional Committee Member (RCM) was picked unarmed up and killed in a gory
manner.
On 10th of May, in Pidia village of Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh state, 12 tribal villagers
who were out in the forest to pluck tendu leaves (used to prepare beedi, the native cigar), were
killed in a savage way by the armed forces. The Gadchilori C-60 commandos in the state of
Maharashtra, killed three comrades in a fake-encounter in Kathrangatta on May 13. Central
Home-Minister, Amit Shah and the Chief Minister, Dy. Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh State
congratulated the armed forces and admired their barbaric acts as an act of bravery. They are
encouraging the armed forces to continue and intensify this bloodshed. Thousands of Police
personnel are combing the forest areas in a reckless manner. In addition to this, aerial
bombings and 81mm mortar shell firing have become a new norm of the armed forces. All
rubbish stories scripted by the police are being telecasted in the media. Media personnel are
stating that armed forces are killing tribal people out of panic. When the tribal people see the
police with modern sophisticated weapons and bombs in forest, they run out of fear. It is the
tribal people who are living in panic. They are living in extreme fear and grief. But the logic of
media personnel stating that armed forces are killing tribal people due to panic is nothing but
to legitimize state violence on the indigenous people. In media, the armed forces display the
dead bodies of the indigenous people along with bur mar (muzzle loader), which is a traditional
weapon used by the tribal people of India for centuries to protect themselves from the attacks
of wild animals. Carrying muscle loader or bow and arrows by the tribal people in the forests is
quite natural. But today, they are being killed in a manner more ruthless than the wild animals
by the armed forces of India. The Indian state has endangered the indigenous people of the
country. RSS-BJP has launched “Operation Kagaar” at the behest of the ruling classes of India
and imperialist forces. The massive corporatization-militarization of the forest areas are
underway in order to hand over the natural resources to domestic corporate houses and their
Imperialist bosses. Comrades and friends of the Indian Revolution abroad,
All these heinous acts by the Indian state on its own people are a testimony of genocides
which are going to escalate in the coming days. Mainstream media and even the alternative
media are maintaining terrific silence on these genocides. The indigenous people are
committed to protect the natural resources of the country from the plunders of Imperialist and
domestic big corporate companies. In such a catastrophic time, they are standing firmly
determined with the revolutionary movement.

The Central Committee of the CPI (Maoist) makes an ardent appeal to comrades and
friends of the Indian Revolution abroad, to take up several programs and actions against
“Operation Kagaar”. Let us defeat this fascist onslaught on the people of India and advance
the Indian Revolution to new heights
