Murder by any other name: the Iranian refugee who died from lack of Duty of Care


Murder by any other name: the Iranian refugee who died from lack of Duty of Care

1461914810415

Today came the news that a 23 year old Iranian refugee, who had been detained by the Australian Government on Nauru and who was known only as Omid, died from injuries caused by self-immolation. Omid had poured inflammable liquid on himself, then set himself on fire in front of visiting UNHCR inspectors. It was an act of frustration, desperation and lack of hope that any solution to his predicament and that of his fellow refugees was in sight. But it took the Australian authorities more than 24 hours to get Omid to a suitable hospital in Australia (the medical facilities in Nauru are hopeless). Omid’s unlawful kidnapping, his unlawful detention and the lack of care while in detention all led to his death. Omid’s action was clearly political. In doing what he did, he knew he would be helping to bring what is happening at Nauru to the attention of the world. … https://undercoverinfo.wordpress.com/2016/04/29/murder-by-any-other-name-the-iranian-refugee-who-died-from-lack-of-duty-of-care/

eats shoots 'n leaves

For the second time in less than a year, a hospital staffed by Doctors Without Borders has fallen prey to an aerial bombing attack.

This time the hospital hit was in Syria, just which country’s planes were responsible for the attack is, as yet, unknown.

From the Washington Post:

Airstrikes on rebel-held areas in the Syrian city of Aleppo destroyed a hospital supported by Doctors Without Borders, the aid group said Thursday, killing at least 14 patients and staff in the latest attacks that have all but unraveled a cease-fire accord.

>snip<

The overnight raids — including a direct hit on Aleppo’s al-Quds hospital — killed at least 27 people, rights monitors and rescue volunteers said. At least 14 patients and medical staffers were killed at the hospital, Doctors Without Borders said on its Twitter account.

The group, also known by the French name Médecins Sans Frontières, or MSF…

When a worried citizen in the Elmwood area noticed the dogs’ living conditions, she immediately notified police. Officers and rescuers were nothing short of stunned at what they saw—dogs and puppies “living indoors in small, filthy travel crates, with no access to food or water.” Director of investigations for the ASPCA Kathryn Destreza says:

CHILDREN IN SHADOW ::: CHILDREN IN WAR

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Witnesses to an alleged stab attempt on Israeli border police at a military checkpoint in the occupied West Bank Wednesday said two siblings shot dead during the incident posed no threat at the time the Israeli officer killed them.Witnesses told Ma’an that 23-year-old Maram Salih Hassan Abu Ismail, five months pregnant, and her 16-year-old brother Ibrahim were en route to Jerusalem when they took a path intended for vehicles, not pedestrians, into Qalandiya checkpoint near Ramallah.
