A wave of public discontent in the U.S. shows no sign of abating, following Saturday’s protest, where hundreds of peaceful demonstrators were arrested, sparking accusations of heavy-handed policing. Defiant anti-Wall street activists refuse to back down, saying more marches against corporate greed and social inequality are in the pipeline. Both the crackdown on Wall street and the way existing financial institutions are run, show that ‘U.S. democracy’ is just an empty phrase – that’s according to UK-based investigative journalist Tony Gosling.

Chilling Channel 4 Film on Lankan War crimes, Rape mayhem and summary executions

Jon Snow presents a forensic investigation into the final weeks of the quarter-century-long civil war between the government of Sri Lanka and the secessionist rebels, the Tamil Tigers.

With disturbing and distressing descriptions and film of executions, atrocities and the shelling of civilians the programme features devastating new video evidence of war crimes – some of the most horrific footage Channel 4 has ever broadcast.

Captured on mobile phones, both by Tamils under attack and government soldiers as war trophies, the disturbing footage shows: the extra-judicial executions of prisoners; the aftermath of targeted shelling of civilian camps; and dead female Tamil fighters who appear to have been raped or sexually assaulted, abused and murdered.

The film is made and broadcast as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon faces growing criticism for refusing to launch an investigation into ‘credible allegations’ that Sri Lankan forces committed war crimes during the closing weeks of the bloody conflict with the Tamil Tigers.

In April 2011, Ban Ki-moon published a report by a UN-appointed panel of experts, which concluded that as many as 40,000 people were killed in the final weeks of the war between the Tamil Tigers and government forces.

It called for the creation of an international mechanism to investigate alleged violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law committed by government forces and the Tamil Tigers during that time.

This film provides powerful evidence that will lend new urgency to the panel’s call for an international inquiry to be mounted, including harrowing interviews with eye-witnesses, new photographic stills, official Sri Lankan army video footage, and satellite imagery.

Also examined in the film are some of the horrific atrocities carried out by the Tamil Tigers, who used civilians as human shields.

Channel 4 News has consistently reported on the bloody denouement of Sri Lanka’s civil war. Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields presents a further damning account of the actions of Sri Lankan forces, in a war that the government still insists was conducted with a policy of Zero Civilian Casualties.

The film raises serious questions about the consequences if the UN fails to act, not only with respect to Sri Lanka but also to future violations of international law.

Sri Lanka responds to ‘war crimes’ claims

From: AlJazeeraEnglish | Jun 15, 2011 | 18,056 views

Rajiva Wijesinha, a Sri Lankan member of parliament, and adviser on reconciliation to the president, responds to claims and footage aired by British broadcaster which alleges Sri Lankan troops carried out atrocities near the end of the civil war.

Aronite thinking has this full length Documentary film by Channel 4 that cannot be set aside easily, especially in its objective and unbiased portrayal of infringement of Human Rights and atrocities by both sides in the Lankan Civil war- the Government Lankan Forces as well as the Tamil Tigers of LTTE.

What comes out clearly through the words of the UN observers, who were first coerced to leave the conflcit arae from Killiniochi- something the UN personnel regrets on video record retrospectively ‘ were to remove from the conflcit zone the eyes of the Inter National community to what was to come”.

In this most disturbing and gruesome video collage and documentation- what comes out clear are the appaling disregard for humanity.

The merciless deployment first by the Tamil tigers of civilians as human shield being admitted, hardly exonerates a well laid out and systematic targeting by Government troops of No-Fire Zone, the hospital areas and the making use of Co-Ordinates and locales of hospital zones to both sides, by the International Red cross itself, a carnage and massacre with just one aim behind-to break the will and morale of a people by sheer terror of their brutality.

For a mere thousand Arab protesters and civilians falling to Gaddafi’s forces, the West had air strikes and active intervention in place.

But the killing fields of Killinochi, Nandikadal and PTK mock at the conscience of the world community.

The Tamil separatists are yet to own up for the deployment of human shield and Fascist measures. But that charge gets meaningless in the surfacing of video evidences that show such stark savagery, unabashed racism, inhumane and debased conduct by Lankan forces that encircled them and went about this shameful civil war.

The Lankan regime emboldened by the tacit Indian complacence has covered up the War Crimes and purchased the veto for Prosecution. Thanks to China and Pakistan that supplied the military hardware and where withal to this most atrocious rape of a humanity and now its denial.
