    • On the Dark Side in Al Doura - A Soldier in the Shadows


      from Justice Action Media (JAM) Added 238K 107 11

      WARNING: Graphic and disturbing photos between 38:40 and 40:45. U.S. Army Ranger John Needham, who was awarded two purple hearts and three medals for heroism, wrote to military authorities in 2007 reporting war crimes that he witnessed being committed by his own command and fellow soldiers in Al Doura, Iraq. His charges were supported by atrocity photos which, in the public interest, are now released in this video. John paid a terrible price for his opposition to these acts. His story is tragic. CBS reported obtaining an Army document from the Criminal Investigation Command suggestive of an investigation into these war crimes allegations. The Army's conclusion was that the "offense of War Crimes did not occur." However, CBS also stated that the report was “redacted and incomplete; 111 pages were withheld.” This video is placed within the context of Vice President, Dick Cheney, insistence that this nation's efforts "must go to the dark side;" which included ignoring the Geneva Conventions. John's story is told, here, by his father, Michael Needham. It is produced in the spirit of serving the public interest and towards promoting justice and the rule of law. Written and directed by Cindy Piester, filmed, edited, and voice over by crew. work4peacenow@gmail.com

          • The Reckoning


            from Skylight Added 10.9K 18 5

            Late in the 20th century, in response to repeated mass atrocities that convulsed the world, more than 120 countries united to form the International Criminal Court (ICC)—the first permanent, independent (treaty based) international criminal court created to prosecute perpetrators (no matter how powerful) of crimes against humanity, war crimes, and genocide. The Reckoning: The Battle for the International Criminal Court follows dynamic ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo and his team for 3 years across 4 continents as he issues arrest warrants for Lord’s Resistance Army leaders in Uganda, puts Congolese warlords on trial, shakes up the Colombian justice system, and charges Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir with genocide in Darfur, challenging the UN Security Council to arrest him. Building cases against genocidal criminals presents huge challenges, and the Prosecutor has a justice mandate but no police force. At every turn, he must pressure the international community to muster political will for the cause. Like a deft thriller, The Reckoning keeps you on the edge of your seat, in this case with two riveting dramas—the prosecution of unspeakable crimes and the ICC’s fight for efficacy in its nascent years. As this tiny court in The Hague struggles to change the world and forge a new paradigm for justice, the forces of impunity fight back. Will the Prosecutor succeed? Will the world ensure that justice prevails?

            • Shahbag: An Ocean in the Making


              from Mehdi Hasan Khan Added 10.1K 17 0

              On February 5, 2013, bloggers and online activists of Bangladesh took stand on Shahbag, Dhaka, demanding justice for war crimes and genocide in Bangladesh. This country was born in 1971 through a nine months long war and bloodshed. Pakistani Army and their local collaborators (mainly Jamaat-e-Islami, using various names like Rajakars, Al-Badr, Al-Shams) killed 3 millions innocents, raped more than 4 hundred thousands women in the name of “protecting religion”. The country wins its freedom, 41 years flew away awaiting justice for this genocide, and nobody really forgot its bloody past. As the news spreads, thousands of people took stand on Shahbag beside bloggers, demanding capital punishment for these war criminals. The protest continues, for days and nights. The roadblock and slogan goes on there for 24 hours, everyday. Shahbag literally never sleeps now, and promises to stay awake until the justice is served. This 24 hours time-lapse video was taken on 17th day of the ongoing Shahbag movement, capturing every 30 seconds of it. More details on the Shahbag Protest can be found on this Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_Shahbag_Protest Download: 1080p Full HD version of this video can be downloaded from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?x3jhhccux956ubu

              • It Is No Dream


                from Benny Brunner Added 2,029 12 2

                "If you will it, it is no dream," wrote the founder of political Zionism Theodor Herzl in 1902, prophesizing the creation of a utopian Jewish state. One hundred years later, some of the harshest critics of Israel's occupation policies are Israelis themselves – a small minority of intellectuals, political activists and artists whose voices are rarely heard outside Israel. Shortly after the outbreak of the second Intifada in 2001, filmmakers Benny Brunner and Joseph Rochlitz travelled through the country and spoke to a number of them: Meir Shalev – one of Israel's best-known writers. Gideon Levy – columnist for Haaretz newspaper. Jessica Montell – Director of B'Tselem (Israeli Human Rights Center). Yehudit Katzir – writer. Yizhar Be'er – Director of the Israeli Center for the Protection of Democracy. Adi Ophir – Professor of Philosophy at Tel Aviv University. Noa Levy – leader of the High School students "refusal-to-serve" movement." Yitzhak La'or – writer and poet. The filmmakers also attended a major peace rally in Tel Aviv, and recorded the fiery words of Yishai Rosen-Tzvi, one of the first to sign the Letter of Refusal to serve in the Occupied Territories: "Fighting against terrorism? What a joke! Government and army policies create a hothouse for terrorism (...) It is forbidden to treat men, women and children like dirt. The more people understand it, the sooner there will be an end to this cursed occupation." The film is enhanced by the powerful work of artist David Reeb, who frequently uses images of the occupation in his drawings and paintings.

                  from Redress Editor Added 4,726 11 0

                  This is a joint investigation by Four Corners and The Australian newspaper, broadcast by Australia's ABC TV channel. The 45-minute investigative film concerns the Israeli army’s mistreatment of Palestinian children. It provides absolutely devastating evidence that the children’s abuse is not some unfortunate byproduct of the occupation but the cornerstone of Israel’s system of control and its related need to destroy the fabric of Palestinian society.
