Tabatabaeinejad: Int'l Organizations behind Big Powers

Commenting on failure of international human rights organizations to show due reaction to the recent incidents in UK, Seyed Mostafa Tabatabaeinejad told ICANA on Tuesday that these organizations are collaborating with the big powers in suppressing their peoples.

The lawmaker said the protesters in the UK are people and the youth, adding that the people are opposed to the royal rule in London while it is said that discrimination and class difference are the root causes of the unrests.

He rejected claims by the London government that the protesters are thugs and rioters saying nowhere in the world protesters should be called rioters. He regretted that the United Nations Organization supported the big powers instead of siding with the people.

The lawmaker said dictators do not want people to rule and for the same reason call them thugs and ruffians.

The UN has so far refused to show any reaction to the brutal crackdown of British Prime Minister David Cameron's government on protests that have hit the UK.

The unrest in Britain began on August 6 in the north London suburb of Tottenham, after a few hundred people gathered outside a police station to protest against the fatal shooting and killing of a black man, Mark Duggan, by the police.

Thereafter, violent protests erupted in major cities like Birmingham, Liverpool, and Bristol, contributing to Britain's worst unrest since the 1980s.

Reports say that more than 3,000 people have been arrested in the brutal crackdown of the UK police on protesters across the United Kingdom.

British police have played a significant role in triggering civil disobedience in the UK through their unprofessional and brutal way of dealing with innocent civilians.

Mark Duggan, whose death sparked a wave of street protests across Britain, Ian Tomlinson, an English newspaper vendor who was killed during G20 summit protests in London, Jean Charles de Menezes, who was shot seven times in the head after the London bombings of July 7, 2005, and David Emmanuel , a British reggae singer who was killed during a police raid on his home, all are the names included in a long list of people killed at the hands of British police forces.

Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), a police watchdog that deals with complaints against police has been established to investigate police's crimes.

The IPCC's job is to make sure that complaints against the police in England and Wales are dealt with effectively, it claims.

The body claims to be setting standards for the way the police handle complaints against themselves and, when something has gone wrong, it helps the police learn lessons and improve the way it works.

But they neither have learnt lessons nor have they tried to improve their performance.

The IPCC was faced with a crisis in February 2008 after more than one hundred lawyers who had specialized in handling police complaint resigned from its advisory body.

They lashed out at IPCC for its indifference towards complaints, favoritism towards police and rejecting complaints, which were strongly documented. Meanwhile, there have happened more than 400 deaths at the hands of police officers in the past ten years alone but no policeman has ever been convicted of murder or manslaughter for just one single death so far.
