The Ad Hoc Greater Boston Committee for Human Rights addresses the Suffolk/Foxman/Armenian issue
455px-Plenty_of_Room_for_Hypocrisy.jpgArmenian Americans await the ADL’s full withdrawal of its deceitful August 21, 2007 statement; its unequivocal and unambiguous acknowledgment of the Armenian genocide; and, to begin to make amends for the injuries it has inflicted in lobbying against the recognition of the Genocide, the ADL must actively and sincerely lobby for the passage of the Armenian genocide resolution. If the ADL is truly composed of advocates for universal human rights and genocide prevention, it will do these things.

Northeastern University Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has announced that the University is backing off of its decision to suspend the student organization until January 2015. “This is a victory for freedom of expression on campus,” said SJP leader Tori Porell who thanked SJP supporters. “Weeks of protests, picket lines, petitions, phone calls, and emails appear to have paid off and SJP will be operational next semester,” Porell said. “This is also a victory for the national student movement for justice in Palestine.”

Watertown Residents Break Silence about April 19th Lockdown
Watertown-Forum-on-April-Lockdown-Photo-by-E.-Mackintosh.jpgReposted from Cradle of Liberty.

On Thursday, November 14th at 6:30pm, close to 30 Watertown residents and legal experts gathered at the Watertown Free Public Library to discuss the police lock-down and manhunt of April 19th, 2013. Three days after the marathon bombing which killed three and injured 264, police engaged bombing suspects, brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, in a shootout in Watertown just after midnight. Tamerlan died in the firefight, but his wounded brother escaped in a Sports Utility Vehicle before disappearing on foot. Governor Deval Patrick enacted a “shelter in place” order for all of Boston, Belmont, Brookline, Cambridge, Newton, Waltham, and Watertown, the MBTA shut down, and police departments and military units from around Massachusetts executed an unprecedented general lockdown of the greater Boston area. 9000 police officers and soldiers occupied Watertown. They created a twenty-block cordon, and armed with heavy military equipment, searched door to door. The lockdown lasted into the evening.
