  • Middle East: 5000 years of imperial history... in 90 seconds

    I'm thinking about maps at the moment - I've just got back from a day trip to London, where amongst other things I visited the history of maps exhibition at the British Library (highly recommended - it inventively reveals the role of maps in propaganda, military planning, and the projection of power and status).

    Now for an especially ingenious and illuminating use of mapping, with the aid of 21st century technology, to show the history of imperialism and military competition.

    Click HERE to speed through the last 5000 years of conquest, expansion and war in the Middle East. 

    On a related theme, see Neil Faulkner's fascinating Marxist History of the World series (8 installments so far).

  • Gaza: show your solidarity

    Great (and cheap!) new offering from Philosophy Football, in the run up to September's hugely important Gaza convoy:

    'In the 1970s and 1980s Soweto became a global watchword not simply for the murderous brutality of the racist Apartheid regime but also the heroic resistance of the South African people. Solidarity with Soweto became a huge, popular international movement which helped isolate Apartheid.

    Today Gaza requires that same wave of support. As part of Philosophy Football's contribution towards this we have produced a delightfully simple T-shirt design on a non-profit making basis.

    We are actively supporting and raising funds for the September 2010 aid convoys to Gaza organised by Viva Palestina but we cannot all join the convoys by land and air. Yet we can all wear 'GAZA' on our chest and help spread the message of solidarity. T-shirt in sizes S-XXL, plus womens' skinny-rib fit.

    Special campaign low-price JUST £9.99 Available from HERE.

  • Now more than ever, end the war in Afghanistan

    Via Stop the War circular:

    RALLY: Afghanistan - Time To Go
    Monday 26 July, 7pm
    Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL

    SPEAKERS: Lance Corporal JOE GLENTON, just released from prison following court martial for refusing to fight in Afghanistan, CAROLINE LUCAS MP, JEREMY CORBYN MP, MARK STEEL, comedian and columnist, LINDSEY GERMAN, Stop the War Coalition, YASMIN KHAN, War On Want.

    'The 90,000 US secret documents leaked today confirm everything the anti-war movement has said for years. The biggest ever wartime leaks show conclusively that the war in Afghanistan is pointless and unwinnable and the warmongers have lied to us continually.

    The war must end now. All foreign troops must be withdrawn without delay.


    The Guardian, giving 14 pages of coverage to the revelations, reports, "The huge cache of secret US military files provides a devastating portrait of the failing war in Afghanistan, revealing how coalition forces have killed hundreds of civilians in unreported incidents, Taliban attacks have soared and Nato commanders fear neighbouring Pakistan and Iran are fuelling the insurgency."

    In this context, David Cameron's timetable of at least five more years killing is tantamount to premeditated mass murder. British soldiers are being asked to kill and die in a war which is lost. They must come home now.

    The rally tonight (26 July) in London, AFGHANISTAN: TIME TO GO, featuring among others, Joe Glenton (pictured with his wife, Clare), the soldier court martialled for refusing to fight in Afghanistan, MPs Caroline Lucas and Jeremy Corbyn, and columnist and comedian Mark Steel, could not have been more timely. If you live in London, it has become a must go event.'

  • Joe Glenton, jailed for refusing to fight in Afghanistan, speaks out against the war. With Caroline Lucas, Jeremy Corbyn and Mark Steel.

    'AFGHANISTAN:TIME TO GO'. PUBLIC MEETING MONDAY 26TH JULY 

    7pm, Monday, 26th July
    Conway Hall
    25 Red Lion Square
    London, WC1R 4RL

    Joe Glenton, jailed for refusing to fight in Afghanistan, speaks out against
    the war. With Caroline Lucas, Jeremy Corbyn and Mark Steel. 

    The war in Afghanistan is in crisis. The strategy is crumbling, with Obama's
    sacking of General McChrystal and an increasingly corrupt Karzai government.
    The violence is intensifying with No clear goals and even fewer results.
    ThousandS of Afghan civilians are dying every year and very little rebuilding
    is being done.     Despite the 77% of people being opposed to Britain's
    involvement in Afghanistan, this government continues to send troops to kill
    and die in a war that is being lost.

    This war is wrong, this war has failed and it's Time To Go-- 



  • Only 17% of British want troops in Afghanistan.

    > PROTEST FRIDAY 16 JULY
    > END THE KILLING, BRING THE TROOPS HOME
    > 5.00 - 6.00PM
    > DOWNING STREET LONDON SW1A 2
    >
    > Four more UK soldiers killed in one day, three of them by a recruit
    > to the
    > Afghan army, but Liam Fox, the defence secretary, still says we will
    > "see our mission through and train Afghan security forces so they
    > can look after their own security and our forces one day can come
    > home". The latest opinion poll shows that only 17 percent of the
    > British public agrees with him.

    > Stop the War has called a protest at Downing Street this Friday to
    > represent the vast majority who say bring the troops home.
    >
    > *******************************************

    > RALLY MONDAY 26 JULY 7PM: AFGHANISTAN - TIME TO GO

    > The war in Afghanistan is in crisis. The strategy for the US-led
    > occupation is crumbling. Violence is increasing, with deaths of
    > Afghan civilians and Nato troops at higher levels than at any time
    > since 2001. But the Con-Lib coalition government continues to send

    Christof Bϋchel: "Unplugged (Simply Botiful)"

    Pireos 260

    7-11pm every day til 6 July 2010

    Even after a shower to remove the grime left on my body after visiting this awesome exhibition in Athens I am still reeling from the impact of the installation.

    Taking the headline from a UK right-wing tabloid article 'Simply Botiful' Christoph Bϋchel 'forces the viewer to take part in physically demanding and psychologically uncomfortable scenarios'.

    In a space 15m x 15m the artist arranges 10 rooms of death and destruction in such a way that you can almost taste the fear of the millions of Iraqi's who were murdered or affected by the so-called War on Terror in Iraq.

    And it is certainly not for the faint hearted or easily offended. Using original items recovered from the aftermath of the Iraq war—bullet riddled clothes, photos, pornography, a full bar frequented by the military, voting booths and bomb-making equipment—Buechel gives us a glimpse, a striking insight, of what is daily life for both the invaders and the victims.

    The stench is shocking. In one room, a caravan clearly used for soldiers sexual gratification, an airfreshner can sits alongside remnants of women's underwear and fag-butts. Loud, brash American rave music blares from a tiny sound-system and competes for your attention with an Arabic voice coming from a TV in another area.

    The contradictions in this exhibition cause confusion. My companion, the cartoonist Carlos Latuff, said 'it causes an inconvienience in my brain...it makes my body feel sick'. It certainly left a foul taste in my mouth.

    This exhibition is in no way beautiful. How can it be? 'War is NOT beautiful' Latuff reflected.

    Take time to sit in every room, to absorb the atmosphere and to examine every piece of the 1,000's of items to really get a view of Iraq through the eyes of hard core, pro-war American soldiers. Talk to the bar men. Climb up every ladder. Crawl through every hole. Wear sensible clothing.

    With politics as good as is display in this installation no doubt the artists price tag of Euro600k covered mainly what I imagine to be very high transportation costs. That profiteering from war comes at a price is thoroughly displayed within this exhibition.

    1. On the night of the 30th of May the 'Freedom Flotilla' (4 Cargo Ships, 4 Passenger Boats, 700 people) carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza from Turkey, Britain, Ireland, Greece, Kuwait and Algeria were attacked with at least 10 people having been killed.
    2. This attack was done while the boats were in International Waters and has violated The United Nations Law of the Sea part VII notably:

    -          Article 87 (a) provides for "Freedom of Navigation"

    -          Article 88 states 'The High Seas shall be reserved for peaceful purposes'

    -          Article 89 States 'No State may validly purport to subject any part of the high seas to its sovereignty.'

    3. On May 6th 2010 John Ging the Director of Operations of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) in Gaza was quoted saying

    -          'We believe that Israel will not intercept these vessels because the sea is open, and human rights organisations have been successful in similar previous operations proving that breaking the siege of Gaza is possible.'

    4. A SOAS PhD researcher, Annekarijn de Jong, is on one of the boats. As part of her fieldwork research she spent  16 months in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel, including annexed East-Jerusalem and Besieged Gaza.

    5. She is now being held, together with a large number of other activists, in the Be'er Sheva prison, with consular meeting denied to them.  She refuses to sign a statement for immediate deportation.

    6. A former SOAS student, Jamal Elshayyal, was reporting from the Mavi Marmara ship when it was attacked. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFEBbDkyrqQ

    7. That the Israeli Government is branding those on the ships as terrorists sympathisers with ties to the global jihad.

    8. That the Israeli Government is attempting to brand a humanitarian, non-violent solidarity project as organised violent action against Israel.

    9. That the Freedom Flotilla's purpose was to deliver much-needed medicine, medical equipment, milk powder, hygiene kits, toys, books, stationary articles etc that have been banned from entering Gaza due to Israel's siege that is now entering its fifth year. As such, their aim was to protest the siege that constitutes a form of collective punishment and is in breach of international law.

    10. That the siege, as documented by a number of reports by international organisations, has created a man-made humanitarian crisis that is sanctioned by the UK government.

    11. That the Israeli Government denies that a humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip exists.

    12 . Paul Webley, SOAS Director, has released a short statement to students and staff, noting Annekarijn's detention.

    This Union Believes:

    1. Annekarijin de Jong should be immediately released from Israeli detention and allowed to resume her research.
    2. The Freedom Flotilla is a humanitarian project, not an attack on Israel, and should be supported.
      Reformulating (2):
      The Freedom Flotilla is a humanitarian and global solidarity project, and as such, it must be supported.
    3. That the branding of Palestine solidarity activists as global jihadists is an attack on all global solidarity activists.
    4. That more pressure must be exerted on the UK Government to campaign for an end to Israel's siege on Gaza.
    5. The School's statement, as prepared by Paul Webley, falls well short of the standard that the SOAS community expect of their institution. It fails to join the international condemnation of Israel's actions, and it fails to call for the immediate release of Annekarijn and the other detainees. It is a mealy-mouthed statement that makes no positive contribution to Annekarijn or the other detainees' welfare.
    6. It is a source of shame for students and staff at SOAS that the School authorities cannot bring themselves join the international consensus in condemning Israel's actions and act to meaningfully support the welfare and safety of a SOAS student.

    This Union Resolves:

    1. To demand for Annekarijin de Jong's immediate release from Isaeli detention.

    Reformulating (1):

    Annekarijin de Jong, Jamal Elshayyal and all other Freedom Flotilla activists should be immediately released from Israeli detention with no threat of deportation.

    2.For the School and Students' Union to support Annekarijin in whatever way she deems necessary.

    3. To demand that the School both immediately and unreservedly condemn Israel's unlawful actions, and call for the immediate release of Annekarijn and all detainees from custody

     Ammendments to come before the meeting 

    Nita Dhinsa SOAS Alumni presents a short documentary after the meeting in room FG08:

    Chapters on Palestine is a thoughtful documentary about peoples' experiences of the Palestinian and Israeli conflict.  It features interviews with the people of Abu Dis, Jerusalem, as well as human rights activist and director of ICHAD Jeff Halper.  A wide range of people discuss their opinions on: the expansion of settlements, the term terrorism and solutions to the conflict.  In some of the most moving scenes the children and people of Abu Dis speak about their day to day life under occupation, and discuss their hopes and dreams for the future.
     
    Short artistic biography

    Nita Dhinsa obtained an MA Comparative Literature with particular focus on nationhood and literature at SOAS University.  Currently based in London this is her first documentary.

     

    2) Statement regarding the attacks on the Freedom Flotilla

    Students, academics, and support staff at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London) are immensely proud that one of our alumni, Jamal Elshayyal (25), and a current PhD candidate, Anne de Jong (29), have had the courage and principled conviction to participate in the non-violent action of the Free Gaza Flotilla in an effort to raise consciousness about the plight of Palestinians in Gaza. Israel's atrocious action against the people of Gaza has meant nearly three years of denial of basic human rights, education and international contact. Many of us at SOAS benefit from a uniquely informed perspective because of our institution's regional specialism. We are all the more horrified, dismayed, and outraged about the Israeli state's latest violation of international law. 

    Jamal is currently a producer for al-Jazeera English and was reporting from one of the ships when it was violently boarded by the Israeli troops. Anne, whose research focuses on joint Palestinian and Israeli non-violent activism, decided to join the Free Gaza Flotilla because she firmly believes that academic work should not be restricted to writing journal papers from the ivory tower. Anne is currently being held in Be'er Shiva prison. We do not know the whereabouts of Jamal.

    We, the undersigned, strongly condemn the murderous Israeli assault on the Free Gaza Flotilla and the senseless deaths of civilians undertaking non-violent humanitarian action to break the illegal Israeli blockade on the people of Gaza.

    It is essential that the academic community takes inspiration from Jamal's and Anne's example. That means taking sides and speaking out against such blatant breaches of international law, UN resolutions and human rights. We call on the international community to compel Israel to lift the collective punishment on the people of Gaza and allow free movement of goods and persons. Those who do not speak out against such crimes are complicit.

    3) Stop Islamophobia conference

    Saturday 5th June, 9am-1.30pm (ends in time to go to the protest below)

    Camden Centre, Bidborough Street

    Muslims are under attack in this country as never before. Government policies and the media have created an atmosphere in which all Muslims are portrayed as reactionary and anti-western.

    Young Muslims in particular are subject to surveillance in colleges, schools and mosques in the name of combating "extremism". Those who exercise their right to demonstrate peacefully have been subject to arrest and heavy sentencing.

    Meanwhile, the racist "defence leagues" have been focussing their attacks on Muslim communities, with provocative marches in towns and cities inciting racial hatred and bigotry.

    From its founding in 2001, Stop the War has been committed to combating racism. We recognise that Islamophobia is a direct consequence of the "war on terror". We believe it is vital that the anti-war movement acts in conjunction with other campaigns and organisations to stem its tide.

    The Stop Islamophobia: Defend the Muslim Community conference on Saturday 5 June, organised by Stop the War and the British Muslim Initiative, will bring together a wide range of opinion united in concern over the escalating demonisation of Muslims in our society.

    Organised by Stop the War Coalition and British Muslim Initiative

    Supported by CND, Cordoba Foundation, Federation of Student Islamic Societies, Islam Channel, Islamic Forum of Europe, Islamophobia Watch, London Muslim Centre, Muslim Welfare House, National Union of Journalists, North London Central Mosque, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Unite

     

    4)Demonstrate against Israel's atrocities and for an end to the siege on Gaza

    Saturday 5 June • Gaza Flotilla March • End the Siege of Gaza: Freedom for Palestine. Assemble at Downing Street, London at 1.30pm to march to the Israeli Embassy.

     

    Stop the War, the British Muslim Initiative, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and many others have called this protest after Monday's horrific attacks on the Freedom Flotilla. Sweden and Turkey have withdrawn their ambassadors from Israel already, so we begin at Downing Street to demand our government does the same, before moving to the Israeli embassy to voice our anger at this atrocity.

  • Soas Directors feeble an outrageous response to: Aid flotilla to Gaza - latest on SOAS student

    Dear students

     

    You will be aware of the events that unfolded over the weekend where a flotilla of aid ships to Gaza was boarded by Israeli soldiers resulting in the loss of 10 lives.

     

    We have learned that a SOAS PhD student, Anne de Jong (Anthropology and Sociology), was on one of the boats. Anne, who is a Dutch national, has stated on her Twitter feed that she has been detained by the Israeli authorities.   Her family has spoken with the Dutch media and have confirmed that she is safe and well and anticipate that she will be deported. The safety and well-being of Anne is of great importance to SOAS and we are making further enquiries via the Dutch Embassy.

     

    The events in Israel have once again turned the international spotlight on the Middle East, a region where SOAS has strong academic links. As a home of political debate, I hope that SOAS can act as a place where people can come together freely to discuss these events, and contribute to finding a resolution, in a respectful and open manner. It is very important that as an academic institution that we do not appear to take sides as this would prejudice the very objective of a fair and open debate.

     

    We will be following events as they develop today and we will keep the School informed about the situation. 

     

     

    Paul Webley

    Director & Principal
