Byzantine Empire

Posted by on March 10, 2013 | Comments Off on Byzantine Empire

Such was provoked interest, which had prohibited the nobles of many peoples go to not decapitate the political power of their kingdoms. The human tides of believers underestimated until the most amazed calculation of urban II, who promised to respect the properties of the Crusaders on his return. However, many liquidated its assets as the certainty of a return to such an undertaking, was of prognosis. The campaign for Antioch. Internal rivalries.

Meanwhile the Muslims, who were unaware what was happening even in the West, had virtually surrounded by Christianity in an empire that even today, extends from the Atlantic and western coasts of Africa to the Zagros (Iran), including in their domains North and the African Horn, the Levant, Mesopotamia and throughout the Arabian Peninsula. United by faith in Muhammad, the Prophet maximum and preferred of Allah (God) as opposed to Christians, the unity of this people went beyond religion: was in their struggle for the desert, considerable faith, absolute reverence to the Koran (Holy Book), and the existential orientation towards Mecca (city where he was born for Mahoma). The fight began, as we refer to paragraphs above, with the failed attempt of Peter the hermit and his crusade for the poor. Their leader, bringing together the remnants, waited the thickness of cross troops who met between November 1096 and 1097 may in Rome (where urban II ended his disputes with the antipope Clement III) and then at Constantinople, to go finally to Nicaea, now capital of the Sultanate of Rum and former City of the Byzantine Empire. The cross-call of the Princes was formed by a series of contingent armed from mainly d Joaquin Toledo, specialist in universal history, with extensive experience in research on world conflicts and wars. .

Geneva Legislative

Posted by on March 3, 2013 | Comments Off on Geneva Legislative

This instrument was used to enact a package of so-called legislative decrees which was referred to the sale of territories of our Amazon, but in those territories live native populations, who naturally responded with complaints before national and international bodies. The CGTP as it was logical included in its platform of struggle. Such legislative decrees since its publication are unconstitutional and an infringement to Convention 169, because there has been no consultation with the Amazonian populations affected, such as provided for in the Convention; by what they demanded the immediate repeal of such decrees which would have allowed to initiate the dialogue within the framework of the consultation prepared by Convention 169, but the Government refused to repeal such decrees; He made gala of its authoritarianism. Against the hard-line Government’s attitude, the native peoples affected, initiated a series of protest demonstrations and then to the not being heard, they decreed regional unemployment or general in the region strike – Bagua-Jaen, passed most of 55 days, the Government rather than abrogate legislative decrees, resorted to armed violence through the action of the repressive forces heavily armed and complemented with the use of helicopters from which reportedly strafed populations occur the massacre that shocked today to the Peruvian people and the international community, responsible for these painful facts, are the Executive Branch headed by President Alan Garcia and the Parliament of Peru, who if they had had political will could have solved and prevent the killing with the balance of the amount of native villagers and policemen dead. These genocidal attitudes is not the first of the current Government, since his first Government from 1985 to 1990, also saw the killing of hundreds of political prisoners and extrajudicial killings of peasants in the Peru (I recommend reading the report of the truth and Reconciliation Commission) Unfortunately in his second Government repeats the same methods, to such an extent that nowadays criminalises the social and trade union protestsin which the repressive forces can use their guns against the demonstrators, in the three years of the current Government have been killed most of 27, including workers and peasants by the action of the repressive forces, only by doing demonstrations public protest. Mr President the Trade Union Federation World asks the ILO to send a high-level mission to Peru, to help make viable: the immediate cessation of the repression of native populations.

That the Peruvian Government repeal the legislative decrees in question and start the dialogue with the peoples affected within the framework of the consultation prepared by Convention 169, suspension of the application of the said decrees is not enough. To immediately cease the State emergency and SUSPENSION of guarantees constitutional decreed by the Government. The heads of the genocide are tried and punished for crimes against humanity may not have neither forgetting nor forgiveness thank you hope that the Peruvian Government consider this situation force do not continue using indigenous lives are lost, and reaching agreements that favour really all involved, which predominates over the reason that the force. Especially in a country where the Inca Empire left us much, there is much history of their civilization, should be followed to its indigenous peoples, who for many years were main actors is that dear country. I hope that after this intervention in Geneva a positive agreement is reached.
