Declan looks to Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn to advise if the referral of his complaint of discrimination against Newham Council to the Equality and Human Rights Commission falls within the jurisdiction of our local Labour MP



According to the Equality Advisory Support Service, they do not know if a Member of Parliament (MP) can refer a complaint to the Equality and Human Rights Commission. Our local Labour MP doesn't know either. With a possible press story in the making, this morning Declan emailed the Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, with our complaint of discrimination against Newham Council (see my previous blog post, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government: Formal complaint of discrimination against Newham Council. Declan cannot even befriend an older or isolated resident in the London Borough of Newham). Surely the battle-hardened Jeremy Corbyn knows.

Meanwhile, the unprecedented double-barrelled attack on our Church and State website continues unabated - SiteGround is paid $1,000 per year to host the site and manage our server - and Facebook's 11th block since 1 December is still in place.

1. Our Facebook likes/shares plugin has been showing zeros to varying degrees on category pages throughout the site since 19 August.

HEAVEY v. THE UNITED KINGDOM

COMMUNICATION SUBMITTED FOR CONSIDERATION UNDER THE FIRST OPTIONAL PROTOCOL TO THE INTERNATIONAL COVENANT ON CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS

Paragraph 12 of Declan's previous updated complaint to the United Nations re the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)

12. It is important to underscore that the discriminatory surveillance suffered by the Applicant and his wife is not an isolated event. Rather, it is emblematic of a larger pattern of surveillance by law enforcement officials in the UK that has been well-documented by international and domestic human rights bodies. For example, GCHQ's Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) specialises in the "4 D's": deny, disrupt, degrade, deceive. It has been branded by the press as the spy agency's "deception unit". Though its existence was secret until 2014, JTRIG has developed a distinctive profile in the public understanding, after documents from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed that the unit had engaged in "dirty tricks" like deploying sexual "honey traps" designed to discredit targets, launching denial-of-service attacks to shut down Internet chat rooms, pushing veiled propaganda onto social networks and generally warping discourse online. Previous reporting on GCHQ established its focus on what it regards as political radicalism. Beyond JTRIG's targeting of Anonymous, other parts of GCHQ targeted political activists and groups deemed to be "radical", even monitoring human rights NGOs. Simon Davies, president of the London-based Privacy International, asks: "If spying on human rights NGOs isn't off limits for GCHQ, then what is?"
