Ban Ki Moon: ‘moral and political responsibilities’…

‘2013 will be remembered as the year in which the world bid a sad but celebratory farewell to Nelson Mandela… I can think of nothing I would rather see in 2014 than for world leaders to emulate his example in upholding their moral and political responsibilities.’ (UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on the UN-website where you’ll find no mention of the 5.000 Syrians  which were just evacuated)

I am working for the Belgian human rights association 'Werkgroep Morkhoven' which revealed the Zandvoort childporn case (88.539 victims). The case was covered up by the authorities. During the past years I have been really shocked by the way the rich countries of the western empire want to rule the world.

Cette affaire a été couverte par les autorités. Au cours des dernières années, j'ai été vraiment choqué par la façon dont l'Occident et les pays riches veulent gouverner le monde.

    Dec 16, 2013 – Workers stage sit-in before UN in Damascus condemning Adra massacre
    http://213.178.225.235/eng/21/2013/12/16/517960.htm

    Damascus, Dec 16, 2013 (SANA)-Hundreds of workers on Monday staged a sit-in before the UN Headquarters in Damascus condemning the terrorist massacre perpetrated by the armed terrorist groups against civilians in Adra, Damascus countryside.

    In a letter sent to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, the workers denounced the silence of the UN and its organizations towards the acts of terrorists against the Syrian labors.

    They called on the UN, the international Labor organization to immediately and actively intervene at the countries which support the mercenaries in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey to pressure those terrorists to halt the killing, slaughtering against the Syrian workers in Adra or in any other places.

    “The Syrian workers had a big part of the crimes of terrorists through targeting them in their factories, companies and transport means, houses, the latest of which was the terrorist attack on Adra,” participants in the sit-in said.

    They added that the crime is a dishonor on the world’s civilized forehead where innocent workers are being killed by takfiri thinking.

    The workers concluded by saying that the fault of those who were slaughtered that they had stood by the homeland and worked hard to ensure the basic needs of Syrian citizen.

    Gathering of “Syrians against terrorism and war” condemns the act

    Meanwhile, the gathering of “Syrians against terrorism and war” strongly condemned the brutal acts of the terrorist groups against unarmed civilians in Adra.

    “Targeting the workers, employees is a terrorist crime which exceeds all brutality of war crimes,” the gathering said in a statement, holding the international community responsible for such terrorist crimes.

    It called on the UN envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi to put counter-terrorism as a priority in the works of Geneva conference, considering that no political solution or life for Syrians with the remaining of terrorism.

    UN: Ban Ki-moon’s double face

    December 26, 2013 – Ban decries escalating violence in Syria, condemns use of ‘barrel bombs’:
    http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=46834&Cr=syria&Cr1=#.UsNtWvTuK5U

    As efforts intensify to bring the Syrian sides to a negotiating table in Switzerland, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today voiced his grave concern about the continued and indiscriminate use of heavy weapons and mortar shelling in the ongoing conflict, most recently in hard-hit Aleppo which has been the site of a “barrel bomb” campaign by Government forces.

    “Further escalation of violence will only serve the agendas of those who see military means as the only way forward, at the expense of the Syrian people who have suffered enough already,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement.

    Mr. Ban has spoken out against the use of so-called “barrel bombs” – oil drums filled with explosives and shrapnel and dropped by aircraft – which he said are adding “yet another appalling dimension to the fighting.”

    “All parties to the conflict must adhere to international humanitarian and human rights law,” said today’s statement. “All civilians must be protected in any situation.”

    Well over 100,000 people have already been killed in Syria and 8 million driven from their homes, with 2 million of them seeking refuge in neighbouring countries, since the conflict first erupted in March 2011.

    Preparations are underway for the international conference in which the Syrian Government and the opposition will officially meet for the first time to discuss peace efforts.

    The conference, due to start in Montreux on 22 January 2014 and then continue in Geneva, is led by Joint Special Representative of the UN and the League of Arab States for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, and counterparts from the United States and Russia, with participants from more than 30 countries.

    The goal of the so-called “Geneva II” conference is to achieve a political solution to the conflict through a comprehensive agreement between the Government and the opposition for the full implementation of the Geneva communiqué, adopted after the first international meeting on the issue on 30 June 2012, which called for the creation of a transitional government that would lead to holding elections.

    Mr. Ban today reiterated his support for the talks, urging everyone involved in the fighting to “work immediately on reducing the levels of violence and focusing instead on a peaceful, political solution to the conflict.”

    He also appealed for all people detained and abducted as a result of the conflict to be freed, and for an end to the sieges, as well as humanitarian access to those in need.

    UN: Ban Ki-moon’s double face

    December 26, 2013 – Secretary-General United Nations
    SG/SM/15560
    http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2013/sgsm15560.doc.htm

    Department of Public Information • News and Media Division • New York
    CONCERNED ABOUT ESCALATING FIGHTING IN SYRIA, SECRETARY-GENERAL CONDEMNS
    INDISCRIMINATE USE OF HEAVY WEAPONS AGAINST CIVILIAN AREA

    The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

    The Secretary-General is gravely concerned about escalating fighting in Syria in recent days, particularly in Aleppo, where reports indicate that civilians are among hundreds of people killed and injured. He condemns the continued and indiscriminate use of heavy weapons and mortar shelling against areas with civilian populations. He reiterates his utter condemnation of the use of “barrel bombs” by Government forces, most recently in Aleppo. All parties to the conflict must adhere to international humanitarian and human rights law. All civilians must be protected in any situation.

    The Secretary-General is particularly concerned that, as efforts to bring the Syrian sides to a negotiating table intensify, further escalation of violence will only serve the agendas of those who see military means as the only way forward, at the expense of the Syrian people who have suffered enough already. He appeals to the warring sides to free all persons detained or abducted, end the sieges and allow unhindered humanitarian access to all those in need. Most importantly, all must start to work immediately on reducing the levels of violence and focusing instead on a peaceful, political solution to the conflict.

    December 31, 2013 – Syria: UN humanitarian chief decries ‘indiscriminate attacks’ in Aleppo
    http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=46860&Cr=syria&Cr1=#.UsNwCPTuK5V

    The top United Nations humanitarian official today expressed concern about the deteriorating situation in the Syrian city of Aleppo, where hundreds of people have been killed or injured by indiscriminate attacks in recent weeks.

    “I join UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in strongly condemning the attacks against civilians in Aleppo and in many other parts of Syria,” said Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos.

    Mr. Ban last week voiced grave concern about the continued and indiscriminate use of heavy weapons and mortar shelling in the ongoing conflict, particularly in hard-hit Aleppo which the Government has targeted with “barrel bombs,” or oil drums filled with explosives and shrapnel and dropped by aircraft.

    “People have suffered enough,” Ms. Amos said, adding that insecurity continues to have a major impact on efforts to reach people with life-saving assistance.

    “I remind all parties to the conflict of their obligation under international humanitarian and human rights law, and their responsibility to ensure the protection of civilians,” she said.

    The Security Council adopted a non-binding presidential statement three months ago in which it underscored that humanitarian organizations operate in a neutral and impartial manner, and need unhindered access to safely reach all people.

    Over 100,000 people have already been killed in Syria and 8 million driven from their homes, with 2 million of them seeking refuge in neighbouring countries, since the conflict first erupted in March 2011.

    There is now an average of 127,000 people pouring out of Syria each month, according to the latest figures from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which added that the number of registered refugees is expected to surpass 4 million at the end of next year.

    Across the region, some 400,000 refugees live in formal camps, but nearly 2 million reside outside formal settlements, the UN agency noted.

    To keep pace with the exodus, more than 196,000 tents and 809,000 plastic tarpaulins were distributed to refugees residing in camps and informal sites.

    Meanwhile, at least five Palestinians trapped inside the Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus have reportedly died of malnutrition.

    The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said it has been unable to deliver relief supplies to the besieged camp since September, and reiterated its call on all parties to immediately heed their legal obligations and allow urgent provision of humanitarian assistance there and to other Palestinian refugee camps.
