“neither america nor canada is afraid of ‘disappearing’ people”, Sandra Bland?

July 26, 2015

I began to believe it’s real that “neither america nor canada is afraid of ‘disappearing’ people who hey think actually pose a threat to them.” This is what I received when I was posting on Yahoo message board about my story of being racially persecuted by Canada and US governments. It states so in such a certainty and such an open and blatant way, that I am sure the poster must be a government insider. It further explained why I am still alive – “So the fact that you are here and not gitmo, some yukon cell, or six feet under ALONE should tell you that they jut don’t give a damn about what you think.”

I think this explanation is quite convincing, because, although I’ve been fighting against government of Canada and US all these 20 years for their racial persecution on me, as a member of the Asian community that is weak, selfish and divided, my fight has never had impact on anything. It’s been merely my own personal struggle, in court processes, in posting some brief messages to message boards, etc. But Sandra Bland is certainly different from me. She as a Black activist, together with the powerful Black community that is united and courageous in struggle for justice, the impact of her fighting would be enormous. So enormous that it can be viewed as posing an “actual threat”, and so they would make her “suicide”, in stead of “disappeared”.

The UN human rights bodies’ double standard on Canada and China’s rights records

July 8, 2015

Now, the UN human rights committee is reviewing Canada’s human rights record. This is only a show, for both the UN and Canada.

The UN human rights bodies only selectively hear human rights complainants’ voice on political considerations. An example: while vigorously hearing the human rights complaints from the Chinese against China, these UN bodies turn away human rights complaints from the same Chinese against the Western countries like USA, Canada, etc. to cover up for these countries. I know at least 3 Chinese in US and Canada who brought human rights complaints to UN against the US and Canadian governments, but all of their complaints were turned a blank eye on by the UN.

My experience with UN probably is the most dramatic. In 2004, The Office of “High Commissioner for Human Rights” (HCHR) of UN, then headed by Louise Arbour, a former judge of Supreme Court of Canada, seized all the complaints I sent to UN’s various human rights bodies, and returned them to me, in violation of the UN’s human rights complaint procedures. I then brought a Complaint against this HCHR and the Secretary of the Human Rights Committee, Mr. Markus Schmidt to the President of UN General Assembly. But my Complaint was transferred back to the HCHR by Secretary of the President’s Office, Tony Gallagher of the USA, without consulting with any officials of the President’s Cabinet.

When I protested to the HCHR on grounds of conflict of interests, “Secretary” of the Human Rights Committee, Mr. Markus Schmidt called me and told me that he was “assigned” to my case by the HCHR, and “you don’t expect this Office will assist you”. Please see the letters that I wrote to the HCHR for details.

Obviously the UN’s human rights bodies are not accessible to people like me, whose human rights complaints are against the Western powers and who do not belong to a politically powerful and active ethnic groups such as the African Americans. This should change. As anyone has human rights, and is entitled to be heard at international human rights bodies.
