Blair's Britain 2005: Where Peaceful Protest Can Be Costly

Aufruf zum Anruf

Nächste Woche wird es konkret im Europaparlament: Die Vorratsdatenspeicherungs-Richtlinie steht am Dienstag zur Diskussion im Plenum und soll am Mittwoch in erster Lesung abgestimmt werden. Der Bürgerrechts-Ausschuss (LIBE) des Europaparlaments hatte sich zwar auf gemeinsame Änderungswünsche geeinigt, allerdings haben die beiden großen Fraktionen (Sozialdemokraten und Konservative) auf eigene Faust einen Kompromiss mit dem EU-Council beschlossen. Dieser soll von der "Großen Koalition" im Europaparlament beschlossen werden und bedeutet nicht wirklich eine Entschärfung der Richtlinie. Unsere Abgeordneten wollen an die Bedeutung ihrer Entscheidung erinnert werden - hilf mit!

Wer das Europaparlament und seine Arbeitsweise kennt, weiss, dass es dort nicht wie im Bundestag funktioniert. Koalitionen gibt es nur bei Themen und die können wechseln. Auch sind die bunt zusammengewürfelten Fraktionen sehr divergierend in ihren Ansichten. Hier kann jeder ansetzen. Vermutlich sind sich die meisten Abgeordneten nicht wirklich bewusst, was sie am Mittwoch abstimmen werden und welche Konsequenzen die Richtlinie für Grund- und Freiheitsrechte in Europa bedeuten. Bei den Plenumsdiskussionen nehmen meist nur die Fachpolitiker des Themas teil, die wiederum für ihre Fraktionen "Voting-Lists" erstellen, quasi Wahlempfehlungen.

Die Tagesordnung am Mittwoch sieht folgendermaßen aus: Es gibt nur zwei unterstützenswerte Änderungsanträge. An erster Stelle steht ein Antrag der grünen Fraktion auf Ablehnung der gesamten Richtlinie. Dieser ist natürlich der weitestgehende und sollte im Optimalfall von den Abgeordneten unterstützt werden. Aber selbst die Liberalen sind gespalten und werden vermutlich mehrheitlich für den Kompromissantrag der "Großen Koalition" stimmen. Der zweite unterstützenswerte Änderungsantrag kommt von der Schwedin Charlotte Cederschiöld und betrifft Artikel 10 der Richtlinie. Hier geht es um die umstrittene Frage, wer denn die Kosten für die Vollüberwachung übernehmen soll. Während der Kompromiss die Kosten auf die Industrie abwälzen will, die wiederum alle neu entstehenden Kosten an die Verbraucher witer geben wird, fordert der Änderungsantrag die Kostenübernahme durch die Regierungen. Also das Verursacherprinzip. Würde dieser Änderungsantrag durchkommen, wäre eine zweite Lesung notwendig und es wäre Zeit gewonnen für mehr Diskussionen. Jedesmal sind 370 Stimmen notwendig. Das Problem ist, dass die "Große Koalition" die absolute Mehrheit hat, aber längst nicht so einig sind wie im Bundestag. Aber auch die Liberalen werden wohl mehrheitlich für die Vorratsdatenspeicherung stimmen und leider nur in einer Minderheit für die Ablehnung der Richtlinie.

Deutschland hat insgesamt 99 Abgeordnete im Europaparlament, wo vermutlich die wenigsten von wissen, was auf dem Spiel steht. Der Bundestag hat letztes Jahr in einem interfraktionellen Antrag [1] geschlossen eine Vorratsdatenspeicherung abgelehnt.

Was kann man jetzt noch tun?

Wichtig ist, bei den Abgeordneten anzurufen [2], Faxe zu schicken und Mails zu schreiben und auf die Risiken der Richtlinie hinweisen. Den meisten dürfte echt nicht bewusst sein, was ihre Fraktionsvorsitzenden ihnen am Mittwoch bei einer Richtlinie mit dem komisch klingenden Namen "Data Retention" zur Abstimmung empfehlen. Wenige Tage sind hierfür noch Zeit. Starten sollten man immer bei den eigenen Europaabgeordneten. Schaut also nach, wer für Euch im Europaparlament sitzt. Direkt anrufen ist am sinnvollsten, meist hat man einen Mitarbeiter am Telefon, wenn man Glück hat, auch den Abgeordneten. Faxe schreiben ist auch gut, ein Fax halten die Mitarbeiter in der Hand und müssten sich das erstmal durchlesen. Mails sind leider nicht sehr effektiv, da die Abgeordneten viel mehr Mails als Faxe und Telefonanrufe bekommen. Wichtig ist vor allem, höflich und argumentativ am Telefon zu sein. Ihr wollt ja jemanden überzeugen und nicht beschimpfen!

Verbreitet die Nachricht weiter und mobilisiert mehr Menschen, sich jetzt gegen eine Vorratsdatenspeicherung und damit eine flächendeckende Überwachungsinfrastruktur in Europa einzusetzen. Nächste Woche ist es zu spät und dann können wir nur noch auf die Gerichte hoffen.

Hier ist ein aktuller Artikel aus der Zeit über die Vorratsdatenspeicherung und was sie bedeuten wird: Jeder unter Verdacht [3]. Über eine gestrige Anhörung im Europaparlament berichtet Reuters: Compromise on EU data storage rules spurs backlash. Die meisten Informationen hält das Wiki [4] unserer "Data retention is no solution"-Kampagne [5] bereit. Viele Informationen bietet auch netzpolitik.org [6]. Am einfachsten findet man diese, wenn man "Vorratsdatenspeicherung" in die Such-Maske eingibt. Heise fasst die neuesten Entwicklungen auch nochmal zusammen: Abstimmungskrimi bei Richtlinie zur Überwachung der Telekommunikation erwartet [7].

Commander-In-Thief

Ted Rall: 'Giving Democracy The Bird: Bush Asks Congress For Martial Law'

Posted on Wednesday, October 12 @ 10:19:24 EDT

Ted Rall, Yahoo

NEW YORK--Soldiers brandishing automatic weapons, a defining characteristic of life in Third World dictatorships, have become commonplace at airports, bus and train stations, government offices and highway checkpoints since 9/11. Now troops are becoming our first responders to situations, such as natural disasters and flu outbreaks, which normally fall under civilian jurisdiction.

Everything's gone topsy-turvy: The National Guard, charged with keeping order here at home and legally under the control of state governors, has been shipped off to Iraq and Afghanistan, shanghaied by the federal government. Here in the U.S., whatever comes up, the Bush Administration's first reaction is to send in the regular army troops who are supposed to be in Iraq. Whether it's a sinister plot against American democracy or the most sustained large-scale foolishness in history, the Bush Administration is tearing down the traditional wall between overseas military action and domestic law enforcement.

Creeping militarism leapt into full view with Bush's October 4 request to Congress to repeal the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which prohibits the use of the military in domestic policing except for the purpose of quelling a revolution. Citing the theoretical possibility that Asian avian flu, now only transmittable from bird to human, could mutate into a human-to-human form, Bush said: "If we had an outbreak somewhere in the United States, do we not then quarantine that part of the country? And who best to be able to effect a quarantine? One option is the use of a military that's able to plan and move. I think it's an important debate for Congress to have."

Overturning Posse Comitatus would allow troops to break into houses and apartments and sweep the streets for flu victims, and forcibly contain them in Guantánamo-style camps. They could seal off cities or whole states. These extreme measures could also be deployed against U.S. citizens after hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, or even election disputes--whenever and wherever a president decides they are necessary.

Bush laid the groundwork for his assault on Posse Comitatus on September 26, when he explained his decision to unleash the 82nd Airborne upon Hurricane Katrina-devastated New Orleans: "I want there to be a robust discussion about the best way for the federal government, in certain extreme circumstances, to be able to rally assets for the good of the people." The Louisiana National Guard, meanwhile, was stuck in Iraq.

"The translation of this is martial law in the United States," said Dr. Irwin Redlener, associate dean of Columbia University's School of Public Health and director of its National Center for Disaster Preparedness. Redlener called Bush's proposal to deploy troops on American soil an "extraordinarily Draconian measure." Even Gene Healy, senior editor at the right-wing Cato Institute, said Bush's proposal would undermine "a fundamental principle of American law" that "reflects America's traditional distrust of using standing armies to enforce order at home, a distrust that's well-justified."

All this over avian flu, which to date has killed fewer than 100 people worldwide.

Travel to other countries and you'll find that a society's freedom is inversely related to the number of guys wearing camouflage, brandishing big guns and pulling people over at roadblocks. Blurring the distinction between policing and soldiering, as do the military police in the former Soviet republics of Central Asia and Middle Eastern countries like Syria and Jordan, is a defining characteristic of repressive states.

Civilian cops may be rude or even abusive, but they're not supposed to shoot you without a good reason. You're their boss, or at least they work for the mayor you elected. Not so with soldiers. Military troops are responsible only to their chain of command, which is likely to end thousands of miles away in Washington. They shoot sooner and quicker than cops, and they have much bigger guns. Regimes that use the military to maintain order tell their citizens: do what we tell you, or else. They rely upon violence rather than tacit consensus to stay in charge.

Rule under the point of a gun is not democracy.

James Pinkerton of the New America Foundation argues for efficiency over freedom. "When you absolutely, positively, have to get something done right away," he writes in USA Today, "you call in the military. By their very nature, men and women in uniform are oriented toward getting things done. They are trained to complete their mission, or die trying. And as Hurricane Katrina made clear, the rest of the government doesn't hold to such a high standard. So why not the best?"

Federal agencies muffed Katrina because of inadequate budgets and mismanagement, not because they're intrinsically incompetent. Moreover, there's little evidence that militarizing domestic functions makes the trains run on time. The military controls everything from road construction to trash collection, yet Pakistan remains a nation that suffers from systemic corruption, a staggering drug problem and crippling disparity of wealth--not to mention an endless low-intensity civil war. Most European democracies, by contrast, enjoy a higher standard of living--and more efficient government--than the U.S. And they do it without pointing automatic rifles at flood victims lining up for food and water.

But what if military dictatorship could be proven a more efficient form of government than old-fashioned democracy? What if a standing army could do what a bunch of namby-pamby bureaucrats can't? Would it be worth it?

That's the choice George W. Bush is asking Congress, and thus us, to make. The fact that he hasn't been impeached for daring to ask it highlights the dictatorial tendencies of those who share his contempt for personal liberty.

Frist sees deal on bill to ban torture by US

Reuters
Sunday, December 11, 2005; 11:10 AM

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress will reach an agreement with the White House on a defense bill that would ban the torture and inhumane treatment of detainees, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said on Sunday.

Frist said on Fox News Sunday that negotiators were discussing the issue of "degrading" suspects.

The amendment, pushed by Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, had passed the Senate with a 90-9 majority, but the White House fiercely opposed it. Vice President Dick Cheney led an unsuccessful bid to exempt the CIA from the torture ban, saying it would hinder the war on terrorism.

"I think there will be clarification of what we mean, how aggressive can one be to get information?" said Frist, who did not specify what would be banned.

"Not torture. What does degrading mean? Do you not want to degrade a terrorist, not hurt them, but degrade them, if they are going to take out your family, if they are going to assassinate you? That's the question that is being worked out," he said.

Frist voted for the amendment pushed by McCain, who was tortured while a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

A congressional aide said on Thursday that Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives had accepted the amendment.

Frist said he expected there would be an agreement.

"An agreement will be reached and we will come to some understanding which will allow us in ways consistent with our values, that is legal, to get the appropriate information to protect us," said the Tennessee Republican.

The White House has argued that putting the anti-torture rules into law would hamper interrogators' ability to obtain information from prisoners by making them less fearful.

Facing broad support in Congress for McCain's amendment in the wake of abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and harsh interrogation practices at Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere, the administration negotiated with the Senate on the final bill.

The measure faces final passage in the House and Senate as Congress scrambles to conclude business this week before breaking for the year.

New chips called a danger to privacy

The state's proposed law The state's proposed law

Key provisions of proposed House Bill 203:

No consumer product or identification document which has a tracking device attached to it or implanted in it shall be sold to a consumer without a label containing a universally accepted symbol.

Identifying labels shall be affixed to the consumer product or identification document by the entity that implants the tracking device or the entity that imports products with tracking devices. Any entity that is convicted of this portion of the law shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.

No person shall implant or attempt to implant a tracking device into any individual without informed, written consent by that individual or the individual's legal guardian. Any person convicted of breaking this law would be guilty of a felony.

The state, or political subdivision, department or agency shall not issue, permit others to issue on its behalf, any identification document that contains a tracking device or uses tracking devices to locate an individual except under these circumstances: 1) To locate a person who is incarcerated in state prison or county jail, is housed in a mental health facility after having been charged with a crime, is subject to court-ordered electronic monitoring, or is a resident of a county hospital, nursing care facility or assisted living facility.

Establish an 11-member commission to study the use of tracking devices in government and business and monitor their effect on the economy and society.

State lawmakers have crafted a bill that, if passed, would make New Hampshire the first state in the nation to regulate so-called "spy chips" in an effort to protect consumer privacy.

The full House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the measure, House Bill 203, in January.

State lawmakers and advocates say it represents the most complete effort so far among the states to address the use of radio frequency identification, or RFID, microchips.

RFID microchips are smaller than grains of sand. Each chip is linked to an ultrathin antenna strip that can be printed on product packaging labels or built into products themselves. Retailers can use them to track products at a distance.

The antennas pick up electromagnetic energy beamed at them from reader devices stores or other businesses can install. When they pick up the energy, the chips send a unique identification number back to the reader device, remotely identifying the item, potentially unknown to customers.

They work up to 30 feet away and continue to operate long after the initial sale. If shoppers buy the item with a credit card, connecting their names with the product numbers, a record of their travels could be constructed automatically, then shared, as the technology becomes more widespread.

Four states — Massachusetts, California, Utah and Missouri, have attempted to pass legislation to address RFID, according to Katherine Albrecht, founder of the national group CASPIAN, or Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering, an advocacy group focused on consumer privacy. But legislatures in each state so far have not passed related bills.

CASPIANalso has crafted federal legislation against RFID, named the RFIDRight to Know Act of 2003, but it too has languished, she said.

New Hampshire's House Commerce Committee first took up the state's RFIDbill last February and retained it for study, according to committee chairwoman Rep. Sheila Francoeur, R-Hampton. A subcommittee added an amendment this fall that outlines what retailers would be required to do if products contain RFID chips.

Francoeur said one provision would require retailers to inform consumers if a RFID chip is embedded in a product or its packaging at the time of a sale, giving buyers the chance to ask to have the chip removed if they prefer.

The bill also would make it a felony to implant human beings with a "spy chip" without their consent. It would set up a commission to track the technology's growth and monitor its affect on individual privacy rights.

Rep. Neal Kurk, R-Weare, who worked on the amendment, said the state doesn't want to deny retailers use of a possibly helpful technology. But they want retailers to disclose a chip's presence.

"With all technology, it helps you and it hurts you, and the Legislature is trying to make sure the gains outweigh the pains," Kurk said.

RFID, or radio frequency identification, microchips are adhered to product boxes with a label for shipping purposes. (New York Times News Service file photo) The technology, used and managed properly, could have beneficial uses outside the retail sector, he said. For example, if someone had a chip implanted in their skin detailing their medical history and they were involved in a motor vehicle accident, a doctor could access that data immediately and treat them, Kurk added.

But he also warned some companies and the government could abuse the technology. If agencies such as the Department of Defense use data gathered by retailers to create dossiers on individual spending habits as away to track potential terrorists, that could constitute abuse, he argued.

"My concern is that it is not any of the government's business," Kurk said.

Wal-Mart is the only national retailer currently selling products with boxes or packaging with RFID chips embedded, according to the company and CASPIAN. The products include Hewlett-Packard digital printers.

The labels with RFID chips look like typical bar codes. Company officials say the chips help them ensure stocks of high-demand products are adequate.

Wal-Mart's plans call for more than 1,000 stores, clubs and distribution centers to use RFID microchips by the end of 2006, according to a statement from the retailer. Wal-Mart expects the next wave of 300 suppliers to start shipping tagged cases and pallets by January 2007, bringing the total to more than 600 suppliers, according to the same statement.

Members of New Hampshire's CASPIAN chapter have staged protests against the RFID technology at Wal-Mart stores in Bedford and Amherst. They plan more protests in the Concord or Seacoast areas soon, according to Joel Rauch, the chapter's founder.

Anything could have an RFID tag in it, he said, from clothes to appliances to books, letting retailers track spending and lifestyle habits to launch more effective marketing campaigns.

Rauch said he's pleased New Hampshire is passing a law to regulate RFID chips.

"You need to answer the basic question," Rauch said, "of who owns your information when you make a purchase?"

Wal-Mart officials at the retailer's corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Ark., have said the technology is helping them better serve customers. Company officials would provide only previously released statements for this story.

"We can certainly understand and appreciate consumer concern about privacy," the company wrote in a statement last year when it first introduced the technology.

Kurk said he hopes if New Hampshire passes an anti-RFID law, other states will follow.

"My sense is that we will be a glowing beacon that will be like a firefly that will inspire other states to do this," he said.

Federal law could trump New Hampshire's because national retailers such as Wal-Mart ship goods across state lines, Kurk said. But he called that possibility not a reason to prevent the state from acting.

STOPP BOLKENSTEIN - Kinderarmut in Deutschland unbekannt?

Bitte informieren Sie sich über die Zukunft.

Wird diese europäische Richtlinie gebilligt, so hätte dies zur Folge, dass sämtliche Dienstleistungen im Europa der 25 wie gewöhnliche Wirtschaftsprodukte behandelt würden. Grundlegende Bereiche wie Kultur, Bildung, Gesundheitsdienste und sämtliche Dienstleistungen im Rahmen der nationalen Systeme zur sozialen Sicherheit könnten denselben wirtschaftlichen Konkurrenzmechanismen unterworfen werden wie sonstige Waren. Eine solche Entwicklung würde unweigerlich zu einer Verschlechterung der Rechtssysteme bezüglich Renten, Sozialhilfe und der Deckung der Gesundheitskosten zugunsten privater Systeme führen. Sie würde außerdem die Deregulierung unserer Bildungssysteme und schließlich das Ende der kulturellen Vielfalt mit sich bringen. Außerdem hätte die Umsetzung dieser Richtlinie zur Folge, dass die Arbeitnehmerrechte, wie sie in der nationalen Gesetzgebung der EU-Mitgliedsstaaten festgelegt sind, in Frage gestellt würden.

Kinderarmut in Deutschland unbekannt?

Eine Studie belegt, dass jedes siebte Kind davon betroffen ist In einer Studie des Paritätischen Wohlfahrtsverbandes (DPWV) wurde aufgezeigt, dass in Deutschland jedes siebte Kind in Armut lebe. Seit Hartz IV eingeführt wurde, stieg die Anzahl der Kinder in Armut auf den Rekordwert von 1,7 Millionen an. Mehr als 1,5 Millionen Kinder leben auf Sozialhilfebasis. Die Dunkelziffer sei laut DPWV wohl noch um 200.000 höher. 14,2 Prozent aller Kinder befänden sich demnach am Rande des Existenzminimums. Während in Westdeutschland 12,4 Prozent in Armut leben, sind es in Ostdeutschland sogar 23,7 Prozent.

The Constitution and Judicial Activism

Jack N. Rakove advises Americans to enjoy the upcoming holidays while we can because when they are over the Senate Judiciary Committee will open its hearings on the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, and we will then have to withstand a rambling disquisition of the Constitution.

A New Low for Lieberman

Lieberman is so much of service to the Bush Administration that the Prince of Darkness himself, Dick Cheney, bestowed praise upon him in a speech on December 6 to another gathering of troops.

Fixing the rules of the game

The Bush administration seems to be losing sight of the fact that the rules also say the majority party of the moment may not use its powers to strip citizens of their rights, politicize the judicial system or rig the election process to keep itself in office.

Bolton now whining about criticism of war on terror

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour said yesterday that the U.S.-led war on terror has undermined the global ban on torture. Her statement did not go over well with U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton, who called Arbour's statement "inappropriate and illegitimate."

From Creating Realities to Refusing Questions

They know, that information is power. So they fabricate it (Niger uranium documents), disseminate it through the corporate press (Judith Miller), pay for positive spin in that "free press" (Armstrong Williams), stage favorable press briefing questions, set up "unrehearsed" encounters between the president and troops (October 2005 teleconference), buy positive press coverage of the U.S. occupation in the "free" Iraqi press.

The US has used torture for decades

All that's new is the openness about it

By Naomi Klein

In Iraq the dirty work is already being handed over to Iraqi death squads, trained by the US and supervised by commanders like Jim Steele, who prepared for the job by setting up similar units in El Salvador.

If America Left Iraq

The case for cutting and running

By Nir Rosen

At some point—whether sooner or later—U.S. troops will leave Iraq. I have spent much of the occupation reporting from Baghdad, Kirkuk, Mosul, Fallujah, and elsewhere in the country, and I can tell you that a growing majority of Iraqis would like it to be sooner.
