ARGENTINA REJECTS BRITISH THREAT TO ECUADOR

Google Translate.

The Republic of Argentina expressed its solidarity with the Republic of Ecuador and repudiates expressions of UK government threatening to storm the Embassy of Ecuador in London violating its obligation to comply with the Vienna Convention, which provides for the inviolability of diplomatic premises.

The threat delivered in written form by the British Embassy in Quito highlights once again the UK’s policy of ignoring the resolutions adopted by the multilateral agencies and the rules and laws of international law.

Just as in ancient temples gave refuge to those persecuted for political, racial or religious today are embassies in charge of humanitarian fulfill this task.

Latin America proudly displays its tradition of recognizing the right to asylum and respect it. Importantly, thousands of citizens sought by the most abject dictatorships of the twentieth century found refuge in the embassies in our continent and able to rebuild his life in democratic countries protected from the persecutions in their hometowns.

Britain’s attitude denying the institution of asylum and the inviolability of diplomatic premises is a step back in building a more civilized and respectful of the equality of peoples beyond its economic and military power.

The Republic of Argentina requested the UK to withdraw its threat and accept their obligation to respect the Vienna Convention as it undertook in 1961.

Aotearoa: A Wider Perspective

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Dancing With Palestinians

I grew up in Israel and served as an IDF officer. It took me years to realize that we had been brought up on lies, myths and propaganda and that Palestinians are no different from native Americans, blacks in S. Africa and other indigenous populations who were abused and dispossessed by European colonialism. Demolishing the Zionist myths and propaganda is the first step towards de-constructing the exclusionary colonial state and achieving historic justice and lasting peace.
