Stars set to rock for global peace [Peace Day has been established by the United Nations ....]

Stars set to rock for global peace Jun 17 07:14 PM US/Eastern

Annie Lennox, Corinne Bailey Rae and James Morrison are to headline a concert calling for global peace.

The Peace One Day gig will take place at London's Royal Albert Hall on September 21.

David Beckham and Jude Law will record special video messages.

In 2001, September 21 was designated Peace Day and is recognised by the United Nations.

Law said: "I am immensely proud to be a part of this historic project. This process is about creating an annual moment of global unity. It can only work if we all become involved and it's essential that we do."

Former Eurythmics star Lennox, who will make her first public appearance of the year at the event, said: "Something that is of common interest to every man, woman or child on the planet must surely be the notion of peace. Without peace we cannot survive.

"Valentine's Day is 14 February, Christmas Day is 25 December. Peace Day has been established by the United Nations on 21 September and the whole world is invited to participate.

"This special musical event will be taking place at the Royal Albert hall to celebrate and commemorate the spirit of the occasion. I'm thrilled and delighted to be part of it, and to contribute to making Peace One Day a reality."

Wish I’d thought of it.

What are these wussies gonna do if we reject their requests for peace? Declare war on us? Torture us? Make us suffer by listening to their crappy noises?

Oh goodie, let them play the Gaza and really rock for peace. More likely they’d end up in pieces.

I think I’d like to celebrate Peace Day on September 20th instead. Sorry, U.N.

(For a second, I thought this was about the global warming day concerts.)

Valentine's Day and Christmas Day, and other holidays generally celebrate events that have actually happened.

If there was a particular day in which there was actual peace (world wide, I suppose), then maybe that day can be celebrated.

What would impress me though, is genuine and sustained peace over a number of decades. That would be something to celebrate.

what do you think the over-under will be on the anti-American/hate-Bush comments made by the entertainers versus the over/under on the outrage shown towards the islamofacists by the performers???

yeah, since they have become totally irrelevant....and insignificant in regards to anything having to do with peace. Since 2/3 of the UN is Muslim it will remain so, far into distant the future

I wonder if they’ve tried to hold one of these concerts in Saudia Arabia, or Kuwait, or even Egypt? Seems like THOSE countries need some reminding about peace, too, but maybe the singing acts think the problem is all the fault of the West.

“Peace Day has been established by the United Nations on 21 September and the whole world is invited to participate.”

Crud. And 9/21 is my FAVORITE night to start a bar room brawl! It figures; those clueless hippies have always ruined everything for me! ;)

Is ‘Sir Elton’ scheduled to perform?

Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)

...Don’t give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night’s alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
‘Cause Saturday night’s the night I like
Saturday night’s alright alright alright...

Castro and Lukashenko to Celebrate Human Rights Council Reform Package

Dictators Fidel Castro of Cuba and Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus will be celebrating the UN Human Rights Council's likely adoption tomorrow of a reform package that will see both regimes dropped from a blacklist, while Israel is placed under permanent indictment.

Contrary to all the promises of reform issued last year, the proposal released today by Council President Luis Alfonso de Alba targets Israel for permanent indictment under a special agenda item: "Human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories," which includes "Human rights violations and implications of the Israeli occupation of Palestine and other occupied Arab territories"; and "Right to self-determination of the Palestinian people." No other situation in the world is singled out -- not genocide in Sudan, not child slavery in China, nor the persecution of democracy dissidents in Egypt and elsewhere. Moreover, the council will entrench its one-sided investigative mandate of "Israeli violations of international law"—the only one not subject to regular review after a set term—by renewing it "until the end of the occupation."

At the same time, the proposal eliminates the experts charged with reporting on violations by Cuba and Belarus, despite the latest reports of massive violations by both regimes. As for the experts on other countries -- on Burundi, Cambodia, North Korea, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Liberia, Burma, Somalia and Sudan -- all of these may soon be eliminated, as threatened by the Council majority comprised of dictatorships and other Third World countries, under a gradual "review" process. Pending their fate, all experts will be subjected to a new "Code of Conduct," submitted by Algeria in the name of the African group, designed to intimidate and restrict the independence of the human rights experts.

The one positive innovation on the Council's horizon is the universal periodic review, which requires that all countries subject their human rights records to review. Except that this was already authorized by the General Assembly resolution that created the Council last year, whereas the package to be adopted tomorrow merely elaborates on the details. Regrettably, the proposed procedures are hardly encouraging. First, the review will occur only once every four years. So if a Tiananmen Square massacre occurs, the victims will need to wait up to four years for redress. Even then, the duration of the review—for China as for every other country—is limited to a mere 3 hours. If all of that were not enough, the process itself, the proposal takes pains to emphasize, is a "cooperative mechanism," with the very country reviewed "fully involved in the outcome." Translation: it's largely toothless.

The complete reform package is expected to be adopted by consensus tomorrow—unless the governments of Canada and other Western democracies uphold principle by opposing the entrenchment of bias as a permanent feature of the new council.

This concert will have just as much impact on world peace as Live Earth will have on the globe's climates. Zilch, zero, nil, nada.

Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.

Ol' Uncle Sam's gettin' pretty hot.

Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.

Call the volunteers; call the bombadiers;
Call the financiers, better get their ass in gear.
Bomb Iran. Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.
Our country's got a feelin'

Blowing off obvious human rights violations by Cuba, Belarus, the People’s Republic of China (so Tiananmen Square never happen? I would believe that the revsionist b@sta@rds would write such dreck), Sudan, Egypt, North Korea, the “Democratic” Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Liberia, Burma/Myanmar, and Somalia; while permanently condemning Israel, the only fully functioning democracy in the Middle East? A country that goes far out of its way, risking its own troops to reduce collateral damage during counterstrikes against rocket launchers operated by thugs?
With this the United Nations has gone beyond being irrelevant, a joke. The United Nations is the threat, effectively run by the tin horn dictators of the world.

Israel - do NOT believe any so-called guarantee of peace from the United Nations. A statement I do not like making, but it has basis in fact.
