Some good news

Getting close to the end of the year there are some good news for human rights activists: 

UN Calls for Moratorium on Death Penalty: The global campaign against the death penalty secured a landmark victory on Tuesday when the United Nations General Assembly endorsed the call for a worldwide moratorium (suspension) on executions. In a landslide result, 104 UN member states voted in favour of the ground-breaking resolution. 54 countries voted against, while there were 25 abstentions.

Looking at this cartoon I remembered that Nikahang had a cartoon a while ago (when the report of US intelligence was published) with quite similar idea, I thought I'll post that one here too:


Bush: Mahmoud, with this report we cannot start a fight for the moment...
The others are saying: NO!

The 2008 Summer Olympics will take place from 8-24 August 2008 in Beijing, while China still remains one of the countries with most human rights abuse in the world and it is the biggest prison for journalists and cyber-dissidents. This Olympics is a good chance to pressure the Chinese regime to respect the human rights issues. China's hosting of the Olympics provides it with a unique opportunity to demonstrate its commitment to human rights Amnesty International has a campaign to make sure that this opportunity does not pass by without notice, action and sustained improvements. Here are the links for Amnesty.uk and amnesty.de campaign pages, you can go to these pages and take action.

What more to say?

  • Can you believe this? A raid against women wearing boots! Well believing will be easier when you know that for the occasion of international Human rights Day (10th of December), an Iranian governmental official said that International deceleration of Human rights doesn't fit with Islamic rules! (Roozonline, Persian) So he thinks that the deceleration should be reviewed and those about Women rights should be changed to fit the Islamic rules, So much for all those trying to say that human rights and Islam are not in contrast.

    Next life

    I received this quote by email, It is really interesting and funny! I tried to find out who have said it but was not too successful, in one webpage it was mentioned that it is from Valerie Kent, and another named it as being from Woody Allen. If you know who have said it please leave a comment! Well whoever have said it, have put some thought in it!

    In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm! I rest my case.

    00403-mahmood.jpg Photo: Arash Ashoorinia, Kosoof.com

    Arash's Photo says it all. This is one of the posters of Ahmadinejad's campaign for the election a few years ago. It reads "Maximum comfort and Joy for all Iranian people".
    He just forgot to mention that by "All" he just meant those "All" that think the same as he does. The rest of the people are not included in "All", so they don't need any comfort, let alone the Joy!

    The world

    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

    • The first Biodiesel powered Jet:
      Scientific Americal
      : A 1968 L-29 Czechoslovakian jet—dubbed BioJet 1—flew up to 17,000 feet (5,180 meters) over 37 minutes powered 100% on cooking oil. A three minute, 15-second test the day before was the world's first flight entirely fueled by cooking oil.
    • Talking about Fuel and alternative energy sources, in Nature collections, you can find Energy collections (Accessible for free), which is a collection of articles on different sources of energy. I'm sure you can find useful information there. These collections are really valuable one just has to find the time and surf through them.
