There was a lynch mob. There was a death without a trial, without a jury, without a sentence. There was an execution — that’s lynching.
—  Eddie Conway, former leader of the Baltimore Black Panthers, talked to Democracy Now! about the murder of Freddie Gray in Baltimore police custody. The head of the police union in Baltimore called protests against the police killing a “lynch mob.”

70 per cent of murdered aboriginal women killed by indigenous men, RCMP confirm

The Commissioner of the RCMP has confirmed earlier assertions by Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt that 70 per cent of the aboriginal women who are murdered in Canada meet their fate at the hands of someone of their own race.

Mr. Valcourt sent a wave of anger rippling through First Nations last month when he told a closed door meeting of chiefs in Calgary that the problem of Canada’s many missing and murdered indigenous women largely comes down to the actions of indigenous men.

Do the most Roman thing possible and murder your political opponents.

“Prayer during the execution [at Pentonville Prison in London] of Reginald Dunne and Joseph O'Sullivan, assassins of Field Marshal Henry Wilson,” Agence Du Roi press photograph, August 10, 1922.  Gallica.

“… We took our part in supporting the aspirations of our fellow-countrymen in the same way as we took our part in supporting the nations of the world who fought for the rights of small nationalities… The same principles for which we shed our blood on the battle-field of Europe led us to commit the act we are charged with.”

“You can condemn us to death today, but you cannot deprive us of the belief that what we have done was necessary to preserve the lives and the happiness of our countrymen in Ireland. You may, by your verdict, find us guilty, but we will go to the scaffold justified by the verdict of our own consciences.”

- Reginald Dunne, July 21, 1922. quoted in Keith Jeffery, Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson: A Political Soldier. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2006.

Jesus of Nazareth was executed today on the orders of the Roman State. Method of execution: Crucifixion. The charge under Roman law was treason, and under Herodian law blasphemy against the Temple. The evidence against this anarchist was so strong that authorities of both the Roman State and the Kingdom of Herod concurred with the arrest and execution, and he was subjected to trial by both governments. And in a rare uprising of spontaneous collective justice, the mass of people who were gathered for Passover called for his execution as well. The mob affirmed their loyalty to the state, chanting, “We have no king but Caesar.”

Friday’s execution ended a career as an anti-government agitator with a long history of lawlessness.

Robert Meeropol is the younger son of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, who were executed as “atomic spies” in 1953 during the height of the anti-communist witch hunt. Meeropol is founder of the Rosenberg Fund for Children, a foundation he started in his parents’ honor to help the children of today’s targeted activists. Here we reprint with permission an article from his blog about what would have been his mother’s and singer Billie Holiday’s 100th birthday.

Ethel Rosenberg after her arrest in 1950 (National Archives)

IF BILLIE Holiday and Ethel Rosenberg were alive, they’d both celebrate their 100th birthdays this year. At first glance they may seem an unlikely couple, but a closer look reveals surprising parallels.They were each born into poverty six months and 100 miles apart. Billie in April 1915 in Philadelphia, and Ethel in September in lower Manhattan. Both had extraordinary singing voices, although Billie’s vocal genius eclipsed Ethel’s. Still, Ethel’s teachers considered her voice so special that they called her out of class to sing the national anthem at assemblies.Both girls were precocious.

Ethel graduated high school at 15 and tried to pursue a singing and acting career. At the height of the Great Depression, she could only find work as a clerk-typist in New York’s garment district. There she helped organize and lead a strike at 19. Billie was singing in clubs in Harlem at 17, and made her mark as a recording artist before she was 20.Both got in trouble with the law. Billie first ran afoul of powerful forces for singing “Strange Fruit,” the anti-lynching anthem.

Her performances generated threats, even riots. Josh White also sang the song and was questioned by the House Un-American Activities Committee during the McCarthy period. He bowed to their demands that he stop. Billie defiantly refused and continued singing “Strange Fruit.” Many believe that her resistance led law enforcement to hound and arrest her in 1947 for drug possession. She served almost a year in prison, and her conviction disrupted her career for the rest of her life.In 1950,

Ethel was arrested with her husband Julius and charged with Conspiracy to Commit Espionage; they were convicted and sentenced to death. The government knew she had not committed espionage, but they held her as a hostage to coerce her husband into cooperating with the authorities. She refused to confess to something she did not do and backed her husband’s refusal to implicate others. The FBI files never claimed she was guilty, but consistently described her as “cognizant and recalcitrant.”                               

You might conclude that Billie and Ethel had similar talents and defied similar enemies.Both died prematurely, victimized by law enforcement. Ethel was executed in 1953 at age 37, and Billie died in a hospital bed at age 44, while awaiting arraignment after another drug arrest.Billie and Ethel followed different paths in life and probably never met, but they converged in death. High school English teacher, poet, and songwriter Abel Meeropol wrote “Strange Fruit” after seeing a photograph of a lynching. He played it for Billie Holiday in 1939, when she was performing at Cafe Society and she subsequently began performing it.Fourteen years later, Abel helped carry Ethel Rosenberg’s coffin to her grave site. Within a year, Abel and his wife Anne had adopted Ethel and Julius’ sons. The man who abhorred lynching and wrote one of the most iconic songs in Billie Holiday’s repertoire, adopted Ethel’s orphans, my brother Michael and me.In 2015, the centennial year of both of their births, we remember Billie Holiday for singing about lynching, and we remember Ethel Rosenberg for being legally lynched.

In 1804 Colonel Burr—then vice-president of the United States—shot and killed General Alexander Hamilton in a duel. Three years after this lamentable affair, Colonel Burr was arrested by order of President Thomas Jefferson and charged with treason for having wanted to break up the United States. A court presided over by Chief Justice John Marshall found Colonel Burr innocent of treason but guilty of the misdemeanour of proposing an invasion of Spanish territory in order to make himself emperor of Mexico.

In 2014, the RCMP released a report on their “National Operational Review” on the issue of “Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women” which amounted to 1181 women total – 164 missing and 1017 murdered.  The core conclusion of the report was that “Aboriginal women”* were overrepresented in the numbers of murdered and missing. They cautioned readers that their report contained a certain amount of “error and imprecision” given the 30 year period of review, the human error of investigators, inconsistency of collection, and definitional issues.

Let’s look at that caveat a little closer. The RCMP had to “limit” their file review to missing women who had been identified by RCMP on CPIC (Canadian Police Information Centre) as “non-white” female or “blank.” The category of “Aboriginal origin” was only recently added to CPIC and so could not possibly capture all Aboriginal persons. Similarly, the numbers do not include Aboriginal women who were mistakenly recorded as “white” or Aboriginal women who were reported missing but were never recorded. Given the high level of overt and systemic racism in policing as confirmed in the Donald Marshall Jr., Manitoba Justice, Ipperwash, and Pickton inquiries, the numbers of those missing never recorded could be extremely high.
Now, let’s look at how the RCMP or other jurisdictions determine who is “Aboriginal.” The RCMP report notes that they used “perception-based assessment”. In other words, “how a police officer defines how an individual looks in terms of complexion and/or ancestry.” However, even this determination is not consistent across jurisdictions. Any number of jurisdictions use the following to identify persons:

           (1) official Aboriginal “status”;
           (2) officer discretion; and
           (3) self-identification.

Based on the above, it would seem logical that the RCMP would miss identifying a large portion or even majority of Aboriginal persons. In the first methodology, I presume they meant to say “Indian status” or “Indian registration” because there is no formal or official “Aboriginal status.” I hope the RCMP know at least this much about the legislated identity of Indigenous peoples in Canada (hint: it’s in the Indian Act).

For those that only use “Indian status,” that would exclude all the non-status Indians, Métis, and Inuit individuals in Canada. The most recent National Household Survey indicated that there were 1,400,685 Aboriginal people in Canada and only 637,660 of them were registered Indians. That leaves 763,025 individuals (more than half the Aboriginal population) excluded from possible identification as Aboriginal by RCMP standards.

Even those who are identified based on their official Indian status, the RCMP fails to take into consideration the fact that there are well over 20,000 people with Indian status who do not descend from nor identify as “Indian” or “Aboriginal.” This is thanks again to the Indian Act which made non-Indian women and their non-Indian male and female children registered as Indians, despite their lack of Aboriginal ancestry or cultural connection. This means thousands of men with Indian status are not in fact Aboriginal.

With regards to the second methodology, the RCMP are identifying Aboriginal peoples based on a racist set of biological and/or physical characteristics which they unilaterally assign to Aboriginal people. In other words, “Aboriginal people” are treated as one race of people with certain pre-determined physical characteristics – like hair, eye or skin colour. They ignore the fact that Indigeneity is social, cultural, political, legal, territorial, and nation-based – not an identity based on race. This racist methodology would be as useless as trying to identify a Canadian citizen gone missing in the U.S. based on skin colour. Clearly, the RCMP would miss the vast majority of “Aboriginal people” using this kind of methodology.

With regard to the third methodology of self-identification, the RCMP failed to indicate what percentage of jurisdictions actually rely on self-identification. This of course would not work in the context of a murdered or missing Aboriginal woman as she cannot self-identify. It might only work in the context of the woman’s family or friends choosing to identify her as Aboriginal. It is impossible to know how many people would voluntarily self-identify given the extent to which every level of the justice system is infected with overt and systemic racism as per the numerous justice inquiries. Many Aboriginal people have a justified fear of the RCMP stemming from residential school days, Starlight tours, and deaths in police custody – as well as provincial police forces for similar reasons.

So, it is logical to conclude that the RCMP grossly under-counted the actual numbers of murdered and missing Aboriginal women in Canada. This conclusion is confirmed by the RCMP’s own admission that due to these methodological problems “a high number of Homicide survey reports where the identity of the victim (and/or accused)remained unknown.” This admission on their part is extremely important in understanding the racist dialogue which has recently unfolded at the Ministerial level.

Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt has been very vocal in his refusal to conduct a national inquiry into murdered and missing Indigenous women and little girls. He has publicly stated that part of the problem is that First Nation men “have a lack of respect for women and girls on reserve.” Aside from the fact that he forgot Métis and Inuit people who don’t live on reserves, Valcourt went on to tell Treaty 6 Chiefs that 70 per cent of the cases, Aboriginal women were killed by Aboriginal men. The RCMP refused to release the statistics on the alleged perpetrators as they claimed a commitment to “bias-free” policing. That commitment did not last long as they issued a letter several days later to Treaty 6 Grand Chief seeming to back up Minister Valcourt.

The RCMP’s exact words to Treaty 6 Grand Chief Martial were as follows:

“In considering the offender characteristics, a commonality unrelated to the ethnicity of the victim was the strong nexus to familial and spousal violence. Aboriginal females were killed by a spouse, family member or intimate relation in 62 per cent of the cases; similarly, non-aboriginal females were killed by a spouse, family member or intimate relation in 74 per cent of occurrences.”

This statistic confirms that Canadian women are more often killed by their spouse or families than Aboriginal women. Yet, in the second paragraph of this letter, the RCMP explain that despite their bias-free policing policy and despite their confidentiality agreement with Statistics Canada, they would release the sensitive information relating to offenders anyway in order to back up Minister Valcourt’s claims that “70 per cent of offenders were of Aboriginal origin.”

Some commentators rushed to conclude that the RCMP statement does in fact support the Minister’s claims and (a) that this somehow reduces Canada’s culpability for both creating and refusing to deal with this crisis; and (b) that, in fact, 70 per cent of offenders were Aboriginal. Neither of these conclusions are correct. The RCMP’s statistics, as noted above, are extremely skewed and unreliable when it comes to the identification of Aboriginal people – victims or offenders. It bears repeating that the RCMP’s own assessment of problems in its methodology led them to conclude:

“a high number of Homicide survey reports where the identity of the victim (and/or accused) remained unknown”.

This means that a high number of the accused in murder cases have an unknown identity. Therefore, the RCMP’s claim that 70 per cent of the accused are Aboriginal is highly suspect at best and completely inaccurate at worst.

There is also a problem with the assumption that because 64 per cent of Aboriginal women are killed by their spouses or families, that those offenders were in fact “Aboriginal.” Aside from having to make the racist assumption that Aboriginal people only have relationships with other Aboriginal people, the statistics do not bear this out. If you look only at the case of First Nations people, the vast majority of First Nations have out-parenting rates (children with non-Aboriginal people) that are moderate to high. Specifically, 246 First Nations have an out-parenting rate of 40-60 per cent; 162 First Nations have an out-parenting rate of 60-80 per cent; and 49 First Nations have an out-parenting rate of 80-100 per cent. It is safe to say that no less than half of First Nations are in spousal or familial relationships with non-Aboriginal people. So, even if 64 per cent of Aboriginal women are murdered by their spouses, it does not follow that those spouses are “Aboriginal.” Statistically, they are just as likely to be non-Aboriginal.

One must also keep in mind that the RCMP did not include statistics on the number of RCMP and provincial police officers who have been accused of physically and sexually assaulting, murdering and/or causing to go missing, Aboriginal women in Canada. Despite a Human Rights Watch report which details accounts by young Aboriginal women and girls at the hands of the RCMP – the RCMP has refused to investigate its own members. We know at least one RCMP officer who lost seven days pay for violating an Aboriginal women and one provincial court judge who plead guilty to physically and sexually assaulted Aboriginal girls as young as 12 years old.

This shell game of numbers and statistics is meant to blame the victim and deflect attention away from Canada’s continued inaction to address this crisis which the United Nations has called a “grave violation” of our basic human rights. The crisis of murdered and missing Indigenous women and little girls continues while Canada (through Valcourt) blames the victim and the RCMP fail to live up to their duty to serve and protect everyone in Canada.

Shame on them both. Nothing in the RCMP numbers changes anything. Canada has a crisis of murdered and missing Indigenous women and little girls regardless of who is doing the killing – and we need to address it.

Don’t be fooled or distracted by Canada’s games

We should all stay focused on pushing for both a national inquiry and for an emergency action plan to protect our women and girls and address the underlying root causes and inequities which make them vulnerable to begin with.


The Assassination of Robert Kennedy (par ricenpeasfilms)

On this day, 45 years ago, senator and presidential candidate Robert Kennedy was murdered in Los Angeles.

It’s no secret that Americans don’t think of history as of anything of importance. The problem is, most countries do. History is what gives a national identity to most of the world (”a Nation without past has no future”.)

So when the TV news transmitted a boss of FBI making a likely unintentional but very serious slander against Hungary and Poland… Let’s just say that we all had some very emotional reactions.

That guy was apparently unaware that Hungary was a “passage” country that maybe arrested the people which the 3rd Reich wanted arrested, but actually fed them and looked the other way when those people were running away. Yet that guy still somehow deemed himself competent to accuse Hungarians of perpetrating war crimes on the same scale as the Germans.

That guy was apparently unaware that the Nazi politics was to enslave the Polish people and reshape us into mindless drones for heavy physical work; to destroy every hint of higher education our nation had - e.g. highly educated Poles were the first prisoners of Auschwitz, scientific institutions were closed and many of their employees - murdered, the schools above elementary level other than job schools were officially closed; to either claim every Polish historical relic as German, or to destroy it; to destroy the sense of personal identity and self-worth in the Polish people - e.g. when a Pole injured a German (out of self-defence, because why else?) 20 random Poles were grouped up and publicly murdered in retaliation, and when such a German ended up dead - it was a whole 100 of random Poles. When a Pole was caught helping a Jew - it was a death sentence for their whole family unit. And somehow it still translated to “so don’t get caught, duh” for a lot of people (most of the Righteous Amongst the Nations orders were issued to the Polish people.) We never even surrendered, but somehow that guy accuses us of what? Murdering ourselves? And since he’s supposed to sometimes work on the cases that border politics - the general state of American education is no excuse.

Well, he could take it a step further and accuse Israel of co-operation with the Nazis - at least then very few people would be ignorant enough to believe him. And it would be very satisfactory to see the people’s reaction to that.
