russians track foreign “rights industry” operating in their country.

I hate to use super liberal sources but then, why not?
And this one does the old heart good to read.

GOOD for Russia and,

BRAVO President Putin, for giving those “rights” bastards a poke in the eye.  They’re annoyed. Good!  They’re pissed. Good!  They’re unhappy. Good!

I wish the Russians would reform the old KGB for the express purpose of dealing with these creeps.  With extreme prejudice.

Seems the Russian govt. is fed up with foreign nationals and organizations coming to their country and interfering in their internal affairs, and generally just making themselves a royal pain in the butt.  You know.  The same way they are allowed to operate at home in the USA and here in the UK.  So here is what the Ruskies are doing, and why not? 

Tax inspectors and prosecutors have been raiding anti-corruption and their allied friends in the “human rights watchdog” industry.  It’s a clampdown on on FOREIGN funded charities and non govt. agencies operating in their country.

In Russia, More NGOs Targeted For Inspections

By Claire Bigg

Amnesty International has joined a growing list of organizations raided by Russian officials in recent weeks amid what activists describe as a ruthless Kremlin crackdown on dissent.

Prosecutors and tax police on March 25 searched the venerable rights watchdog’s Moscow headquarters, along with three other prominent advocacy groups—the movement For Human Rights, the Public Verdict Foundation, and the Agency for Social Information.

Russian Raids Continue

The Agora rights association says more than 40 nongovernmental organizations across Russia, many of them vocal critics of President Vladimir Putin, have been subjected to unannounced audits in the past month.

Other groups have also reported surprise inspections by the Justice Ministry, the fire-safety service, and the Health Department.

Agora estimates that up to 2,000 organizations may have been searched in total.

Prosecutors on March 25 said they were simply conducting extra checks of foreign-funded organizations that fall under controversial new legislation requiring such groups to re-register in Russia as “foreign agents”—a term widely used to discredit or execute people during Josef Stalin’s purges in the 1930s. Many groups have refused to comply.

Nongovernmental organizations are crying foul and accuse authorities of seeking to muffle critics in response to unprecedented antigovernment protests last winter.

Amnesty International condemned the inspections in a toughly worded statement, accusing Russian authorities of seeking to “deliberately stigmatize and discredit NGOs in the eyes of the public.”

It also reiterated fears that the new law on “foreign agents” may be used “to harass and seek closure of those highlighting abuses and critical of the government.”

Both Amnesty International and the movement For Human Rights claim officials involved in the searches requested documents that the government already has on file.

The left love to use words like liberty. They use it a lot.  Means when you don’t agree with them you are automatically anti freedom and anti liberty.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
