The trio of horrors. Cartoon of 09/12/2023 in CTXT

The US has once again prevented the UN from pushing through a resolution for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza by exercising its right to veto. This is the second time that the United States has vetoed a resolution proposing a ceasefire.

As it turned out, 13 countries voted in favour of the text presented by the United Arab Emirates, while one voted against it, the United States, which has the right to veto as a permanent member of the Council (so de facto calls the shots at the UN) and the United Kingdom abstained.

There you have the two elements representing the US and the UK happily raising their right arms.

If the US refusal seems normal to you, the UK's abstention should seem even more so. A few days ago, the Prime Minister and leader of the UK's Conservative and Unionist Party, Rishi Sunak, was shitting on human rights and openly declaring that that he was going to throw them away. In other words, the same thing the state of Israel has been doing for decades.

"Our national courts will no longer be able to use any national or international law, including the Human Rights Act, to stot us removing illegal immigrants".

Rishi Sunak

Recommendation of the day.

Alon Schwarz's documentary "Tantura", which opened the Sundance Film Festival 2022.

Synopsis.

"Tantura" is the name of a Palestinian village razed to the ground by the Israeli exercise in 1948. It is also the title of an exceptional investigative documentary that shows how history has been hidden and manipulated to create a past acceptable to Israeli society".

You can also watch it in full in Catalan on the TV3 website.
