EVENT: Human Rights Challenge: Judicial and Extrajudicial Drug War Killings, in a Time of Authoritarianism

Human Rights Challenge: Judicial and Extrajudicial Drug War Killings, in a Time of Authoritarianism
side event at the UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development
Church Center of the United Nations, 1st Avenue & 44th Street, 10th Floor
July 16, 2018, noon-2:00pm ET
RSVP to [email protected] (requested but not required)

The rise of authoritarian or authoritarian-leaning political figures has been accompanied, in some cases driven, by calls for both sanctioned and extra-legal government violence in their crime and drug policies. The most noted example is that of extrajudicial drug war killings in the Philippines under President Rodrigo Duterte. But similar killings have begun in Indonesia and Bangladesh, and high-level political figures in countries including Malaysia and Turkey have called for extra-legal violence by law enforcers. In March of this year, President Trump called for the death penalty for some drug offenses, and Attorney General Sessions issued a memo calling for use of two never prosecuted drug death penalties provisions of dubious constitutionality.

A devolution into governmental barbarism would threaten the achievement of a variety of components of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, in the areas of health, rule of law, equal justice, peace, and strong institutions.

This panel will discuss what the needed partnerships may be for fending off such a scenario. Sectors or institutions of possible discussion include the ICC, UN human rights bodies, national human rights institutions, courts, public interest/human rights law, drug abuse services, the philanthropic sector, and media, among others. The event is the third in a series, the first two of which took place at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs 2017 and 2018 meetings in Vienna.

Speakers (subject to change):

  • Justine Balane, International Secretary, Akbayan Youth, Philippines (via Skype)
  • Agnès Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions (via Skype)
  • Senator Risa Hontiveros, Republic of the Philippines (video – invited)
  • Jason Wright, Professor of Practice, Washington & Lee School of Law
  • Moderated by David Borden, Executive Director, StoptheDrugWar.org

Sponsored by DRCNet Foundation (AKA "StoptheDrugWar.org"). Cosponsored by:

Trump is a fucking traitor

Trump is a fucking traitor,  and a dictatorial madman with a taste for cruelty and violence.

Will you really be so SHOCKED when the crackdown on legal marijuana comes?  Be honest: hell no.  We all could see it coming a mile away.

Vote Democratic!

Can't trust a Fucking Republican with Marijuana Legalization!

You just can't trust a Trump-loving, goddamn Republican with marijuana legalization.

..

We must not let Republicans represent our cause, because the very first thing they will do is what they always do, and that is: extortion.  They are already doing it, right fucking now!

..

They intend to take our movement hostage, and demand a ransom for their cause: Alt-Right power (that means "white supremacist" power), and Putin-enabled Fascism.  It is standard operating procedure for Republicans.  Ass-wipes like Rand Paul talk pretty, but always vote with the Fascists.  The so-called "Libertarians" who listen to his bullshit are delusional.  (Sorry but it's true. Same goes for the Green Party.  Retain your green values; but work for progressives in Democratic primaries.  Third parties are Trump enablers, so long as he is around.)

..

 Republicans are NOT "hemp-friendly."  Please.  Don't be a sucker.

..

The Republicans are traitors and propagandists. 

..

Why the fuck would ANYONE trust a goddamn Republican to debunk the pseudo-science of Reefer Madness?  These motherfuckers won't even admit Trump colluded with Russian WHEN HE DID IT ON LIVE GODDAMN TELEVISION!!  I saw it myself.  Didn't you?  

..

Who gives a flying fuck what Trump and his supporters say about the science of cannabinoids.  They reject Science itself!  Seriously.  The whole idea is ludicrous.   You would get a more reliable response from a deck of tarot cards and a bowl of pig entrails.  (And it would be less disgusting, too!) 

..

Bottom line is, Republicans are  lying, corrupt, Fascist Authoritarians who are, at present time, openly blowing Putin in public.  The marijuana legalization community needs to understand that its future does not lie with Fascist Authoritarianism, or with Traitor Trump in any way, shape or form.  Trump is a plague.  (Actually this is fairly obvious.  Those who deny it likely have a hidden agenda.)

..

 Like advertisers making a soft drink commercial showing healthy people drinking an unhealthy substance,  Republicans wish to use the popularity of marijuana legalization as a marketing tool for something exactly the opposite: Authoritarianism.  

..

Send them all to the unemployment line.  Vote Democratic!

https://www.vote.org

true Green voting

"Retain your green values, but work for progressives in Democratic Primaries.  Third parties are Trump enablers."

The worst mistake of past decades was when the Democratic Party adopted "Blue" as its color to duopolize with Redcoat Republicans.  Democrats should switch to GREEN and act accordingly!  Then chances are the Green Party will wisely merge into the Democratic Party and help fight treekilling Fascist Redcoat Authoritarianism.

Dain Bramage's picture

Agreed: Vote Democratic To Defeat Trump!

 

There was a time when you couldn't tell Democrats from Republicans when it came to drug policy.  I blame the Democrats for that -- for trying to be "Republican Lite."

That is no longer the case.  The situation has changed, and the two parties have now staked out polar opposite positions.  The Democrats are ready to legalize marijuana, nationwide.  Additionally, Democrats support universal health care, and oppose repeal of Obamacare.  Democrats support workers, and a living wage. Democrats want to protect our environment, and our drinking water.

What do Republicans believe in?  Drug prohibition, including marijuana.  Racism.  Sexism.  Treason with Russia against America.  Baby-snatching!  Goddamn "alternative facts", which are no better than Reefer Madness!  And they want to roll back all environmental regulations and consumer safety regulations.  They DON'T GIVE A FUCK IF THERE IS LEAD IN THE WATER.

We cannot let the progressive opposition to Trump be split between parties, or we lose.

Third parties are Trump enablers!

(Treedesigner, I think I recognize your quote, above! Nice to "see" you again!)

Dain Bramage's picture

Kavanaugh, Men, Women, and Alcohol

Brett Kavanaugh represents a male culture of misogyny and violence toward women.  But he also represents a culture of DRUG ABUSE -- the drug in question being alcohol.

We all live in an alcoholic culture, here in USA.  The very phrase "drugs and alcohol" implies a distinction that does not exist; to wit: alcohol is a drug.

The Kavanaugh nomination for the Supreme Court should be withdrawn.  (Indeed, the entire current crop of treasonous Republicans should be "turned under."  Fuck 'em all, those Putin-blowing, treasonous criminals!)

But, notice this: nobody wants to talk about the booze.

Nothing justifies sexual assault.  But to ignore the role alcohol plays in violence is to be in denial.

America has yet to have a full and open and honest conversation about DRUGS.

Dain Bramage's picture

Additionally...I recognize

Additionally...

I recognize that it can be difficult to see the alcoholic nature of American culture, when one is born into it, and saturated by it.  Here are a couple of observations that may help get a handle on the matter.

First, a basic and obvious observation: bars are ubiquitous, and have been around forever, so to speak.  But marijuana dispensaries are something new, and novel.  We compare them to bars when we use the term "budtender" but our alcoholic culture still resists the cannabis clubs -- it doesn't want to give up its cultural turf!

But you can also dig into the alcoholic American culture itself for clues.  Take the literal or proverbial "water cooler conversation", where people at work talk about their weekend.  Consider the typical reaction you are likely to hear when people are gossiping about a coworker who got drunk and did some fucked up drunken shit.  Here it is: "Some people just can't handle their liquor."

Consider that statement.  It is a cultural rationalization for alcohol abuse, because, first of all, it says that drinking is normal, and that any repugnant, drunken behavior is solely an individual failing -- a moral failing and/or a character flaw of the drunk under discussion.  Alcoholism, in fact, is not so simple.  The "addictive personality" theory of drug abuse does not hold water.  Alcoholism is more similar to an allergy than it is to a character flaw.  Yet none of this in any way justifies immoral, drunken behavior.  Alcoholic recovery involves, in part, acknowledging all of these truths. 

Of course, alcohol is a dangerous drug, whether or not one is an alcoholic.  And the association between alcohol and violence is well documented.

 But more subtly, and yet more significantly, the statement "some people can't handle their liquor" tacitly acknowledges the risks of violence associated with alcohol and "drinking" (another "loaded" term.  "Drinking" of course refers to alcohol); yet, it justifies those risks by taking the implied position "it just goes with the territory."  

Fun fact: marijuana is safer than alcohol!

The Challenge

You should in philipines, remember that Since winning the presidency in 2016, Rodrigo Duterte’s regime has enacted policies of fear and repression that have eroded democratic norms and endorsed violations of fundamental rights. The result? The return to tyranny and the deaths of tens of thousands.

Sad News

It is so sad to hear about all these killings and tragedy's due to the drug war and all the terrible results that come with it. I'm hoping things are able to turn around for the better but a lot of work needs to be done in order to create change.
