Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Stewart McDonald: this year. Commemoration is of course important. It is always important to commemorate the large-scale loss of human life, as we do this week on the 22nd anniversary of the genocide at Srebrenica. We welcome the fact that the families of those lost in the battle of Passchendaele will have the opportunity to take part in these commemorations. In Scotland, no community, and barely a...

9. 9. Short Debate: Remembering Srebrenica (12 Jul 2017)

Jane Hutt: Thank you, Deputy Presiding Officer. I do welcome the opportunity provided by this debate to remember the events of Srebrenica 22 years ago. I thank Jayne, and I think all of us here today thank Jayne Bryant for bringing this to the National Assembly for Wales. It’s vital that we do take time to remember this terrible genocide. As Jayne said, at least 8,372 Bosnian Muslims, boys, men and...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (12 Jul 2017)

Ian Blackford: I am sure that the whole House will join me and my colleagues in marking the 22nd anniversary of the sad events at Srebrenica. I thank those who held last night’s memorial in London to ensure that we never forget. Will the First Secretary of State confirm that the devolved Administrations will not face a diminution of powers as a result of the repeal Bill?

Srebrenica Genocide Commemoration ( 5 Jul 2017)

Mark Field: ...(Jim Shannon) and for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden), and I will try to address some of the points they raised. As has rightly been pointed out, the genocide committed in and around Srebrenica some 22 years ago undoubtedly represents one of the darkest chapters in the post-war history of our continent. Because of my family background, I had more reason than many, perhaps, to have...

Scottish Parliament: Justice for Yazidi People (23 Mar 2017)

Johann Lamont: ...them. It is a process that moves on from preparing for genocide to conducting it and then, critically, denying that it is happening. I am privileged to be a member of the board of Remembering Srebrenica Scotland, a campaign that has been created to insist that genocide, and the steps to it, be understood, as well as the lengths to which those who commit genocide will go to deny their own...

3. Urgent Question: The United States 90-day Travel Ban (31 Jan 2017)

Carwyn Jones: ...I remind him that people calling themselves Christians were beheading women and children on bridges over rivers in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that there were massacres taking place in places like Srebrenica? We cannot say that any religion has a monopoly on evil, but what I do hope is the US regains its ability to see sense.

Changes in Us Immigration Policy (30 Jan 2017)

Naseem Shah: ...I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me”. I do not want to be on the wrong side of history when there is another genocide; Srebrenica happened in my lifetime. Where does the slippery slope really lead when we demonise Muslims and those seeking refuge on our shores? Offering refuge is what being British stands for,...

Scottish Parliament: Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 (26 Jan 2017)

Alasdair Allan: ...society. Since then—as Ross Greer and others pointed out—fundamental human rights have continued to be denied and there have been atrocities all over the world, from the massacre in Srebrenica to the atrocities in Darfur. Reflections such as today’s debate provide us with an opportunity to grow and to prosper for a better tomorrow. We must use this period of reflection to renew our...

Kashmir: Holocaust Memorial Day (19 Jan 2017)

Andrew Percy: ...on the “Antiques Roadshow” last week—that everybody in them apart from you had perished in a death camp or in more recent conflicts, such as the killing fields of Cambodia, in Rwanda or in Srebrenica. However, such photographs, and some of those we saw on the programme last week, also invoke strength and renewal, and they encourage new lives and new memories. That is why Holocaust...

Yemen (12 Jan 2017)

Bob Stewart: As ever, it is the little people who are suffering in this war. Apparently, 7,000 people have died. To me, that chimes with the number of people killed at Srebrenica, which I was kind of involved with all those years ago. When Srebrenica occurred, the world suddenly got its backside in gear and sorted it out. I return to my original point: let us hope that 2017 sorts this situation out. It...

Aleppo/Syria: International Action (13 Dec 2016)

Mary Creagh: ...regime. We have seen the pictures of the 100 or so civilian men and boys in that compound with the Syrian army general in front of them. We do not know their fate. We are back to Bosnia, back to Srebrenica. When we say never again, we must put force behind those words. I would like to conclude by asking the Foreign Secretary what the Prime Minister will do at the EU Council this weekend....

East Aleppo: Evacuation (12 Dec 2016)

Andrew Mitchell: ...circumstances that now prevail in east Aleppo. Britain took a lead some years ago at the United Nations in developing the international community’s responsibility to protect. We said after Srebrenica, Darfur and Rwanda, “Never again”. It is happening today as we meet. There are reports this afternoon, accompanied by the most hideous photographs, of the use of sarin—a nerve gas—by...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: International Human Rights Day ( 5 Dec 2016)

Doug Beattie: ...added to by the Equality and Human Rights Commission and the European Court of Human Rights. It is interesting that, today, in the European Court of Human Rights, the trial of Ratko Mladic for the Srebrenica massacre in 1995, the last of those war crimes, is finishing. As things have progressed, human rights have become slightly more complicated. Article 18 of the declaration states:...

Aleppo (28 Nov 2016)

Richard Benyon: asked to carry out these missions, I think we should be careful to avoid making a “something must be done” response to a situation that shames humanity and that is on a par with Rwanda, Srebrenica and other events us that have shamed us collectively in the west. Learning from those events, could other actions be taken not only to hold Russia to account but to look at what really...

Scottish Parliament: Prevention and Eradication of Hate Crime and Prejudice ( 9 Nov 2016)

Johann Lamont: ...members will forgive me for sharing with them an experience that had an unbelievably powerful impact on me. I recently had the privilege of visiting Bosnia as the guest of the charity Remembering Srebrenica to learn more about the genocide that took place there only 21 years ago. Bosnia is a beautiful country and its people are welcoming. Sarajevo is a city with a proud history and a...

Concentrix: Yemen (26 Oct 2016)

Keith Vaz: ...) for all the work they have done. On Monday, the hon. Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart), who is not in the Chamber, said to the Prime Minister that when 7,000 people were killed in 1995 in Srebrenica, the international community acted. That is why it is so important that we not only debate today’s motion, but follow through with a resolution that will be taken on board by the whole...

European Council (24 Oct 2016)

Bob Stewart: the European Council, but I am wondering whether any spotlight was put on the crisis in Yemen. Approaching 7,000 people have been killed there, and when 7,000 people were killed in July 1995 at Srebrenica the international community moved into high gear to sort it out. Does the European Union have any plans to try to sort out the appalling crisis that is happening in Yemen?

Aleppo and Syria (11 Oct 2016)

Ann Clwyd: ...two weeks, following the collapse of a US-Russian-brokered ceasefire. Staffan de Mistura has also said: “There is only one thing we are not ready to do: be passive, resign ourselves to another Srebrenica, another Rwanda, which we are sadly ready to recognise written on that wall in front of us, unless something takes place.” He warned that history would judge decision makers in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Humanitarian Crisis in Eastern Aleppo (10 Oct 2016)

Alex Attwood: ...population — have been internally displaced. Last week, the UN special envoy to the area said in crystal clear words that we now had a situation where we had to divert this from being another Srebrenica or another Rwanda and that by Christmas eastern Aleppo could be destroyed. We are witnessing the slow death of its people. As one citizen put it, and I will conclude with these words:...
