Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill: Terrorism: Interpretation (10 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...people in Brazil campaigned honourably for a long time to protect the rain forest in a sustainable way and to preserve their way of life. At various times, their methods have been described as terrorism against the state of Brazil, because they prevent what some perceive as legitimate economic activity and others perceive as disastrous for the rain forest. Many people in this country have...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill: Repeals (15 Mar 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: .... I endorse the comments of my hon. Friend the Member for Hayes and Harlington (Mr. McDonnell). I also remember clearly the saga of the Guildford Four and the way in which, under the prevention of terrorism Act, wholly innocent people were picked up by the police merely for attending meetings to discuss the situation in Ireland or because they were framed by others. They were subsequently...

Senator Pinochet (2 Mar 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...have disappeared to explain to them personally why he thinks that that is the correct decision to take, when none of their relatives had any opportunity for any justice whatever during the reign of terror in Chile?

Points of Order (17 Jan 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of the medical information, and there is a request from the Spanish authorities for an independent medical examination of Pinochet. This man is accused of serious crimes against humanity under the terrorism convention, and I believe that it would be right and proper for the Home Secretary to return to the House to make a further statement, so that these discrepancies can be explored.

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Dec 1999)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that the French Government's action in ordering the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior—and the death of two sailors on it—in New Zealand was an act of terrorism, as was the United States bombardment of the medical factory in the Sudan? Does he agree that, when we are talking about terrorism, we must also think very seriously about the whole concept of state terrorism?

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Dec 1999)

Jeremy Corbyn: .... He spent more than half his life in British prisons for an offence that he did not commit, on the basis of evidence that was collected after the first arrest of a person under the prevention of terrorism Act—Paul Hill. Subsequently, the other three so-called members of the group were arrested, charged and imprisoned. It took an enormous campaign to get them out of prison. The PTA was...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Dec 1999)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...pertaining to the PTA. Constituents of mine who have been held for periods of between half an hour and two hours have been told that they are answering questions. The words "prevention of terrorism Act" have been uttered, but, as no formal process has ever been established, there is no certainty that they ever appear in any statistics. Article 11 of the European convention provides that...

Clause 5: England and Wales (2 Sep 1998)

Jeremy Corbyn: I can see the point that the right hon. Gentleman is trying to make about terrorism, but it is not good enough simply to insert the word "terrorist" without trying to define what that is. We have discussed before the difficulty in defining the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter, depending on the regime, on one's perception of it and on whether one agrees with it, among other...

Opposition Day: International Arms Trade (2 Apr 1998)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...discussed. The Chilean army was not willing to accept the democratic will of its people, and staged a coup that was successful in the sense that it murdered the President and ushered in a reign of terror that lasted for a very long time and cost the lives of very many people. We must remember that arms are made to kill people, and if they are used to abuse human rights anywhere in the...

Social Security (19 Feb 1997)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...playing the racist card against people who are victims of terrible situations in other societies. Last week, some asylum seekers from the middle east described to me the torture, pain, horror and terror that they had experienced at the hands of the regime from which they had fled. Their asylum applications had been turned down, they had no benefits, and they were living on gifts from...

Prayers: Latin America (16 Oct 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: Chile and the removal of the dictatorship, his visit is extremely welcome. Far less welcome are the strong rumours that General Pinochet is also in Britain. He is associated with the reign of terror in Chile and the destruction of human rights as well as of many Chilean trade unions and other organisations. He is here, presumably, on yet another arms buying spree. His very existence...

Orders of the Day — Defamation Bill [Lords]: Responsibility for Publication (24 Jun 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the two amendments because I believe that the time has come to deal with the issue. Bookmarks bookshop in my constituency and the nearby Housemans bookshop in King's Cross have been subject to terrorism by far-right groups that seek to prevent them from stocking certain types of journals. I hope that the House will recognise the importance of my comments. When the individuals concerned...

Orders of the Day — Defamation Bill [Lords]: Responsibility for Publication (24 Jun 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...contained in Searchlight have selected a number of bookshops, the burden of their threat to any other bookshop being, "If you stock this magazine, you will get the same treatment." It is selective terrorism against radical bookshops, in the knowledge that they have little resources with which to fight a libel case, so many of them have been forced to settle out of court, paying money that...

Prevention of Terrorism (Additional Powers) Bill: Power to Stop and Search Pedestrians (2 Apr 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...felt that large numbers of them would be stopped over the next few weeks when the power is introduced because London is, of course, a designated area. One must link the measure to the prevention of terrorism Act. Will the Home Secretary explain this point to me—if a young person is stopped one night under the stop-and-search procedure and the police officer decides that there is...

Prevention of Terrorism (Additional Powers) Bill (Allocation of Time) (2 Apr 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...excessive powers to stop and search people at random. That will lead to a deterioration in relations between the police and the community. Furthermore, it will do nothing to solve the problems of terrorism, which are basically political in origin and therefore require a political solution. The sorry experience of Northern Ireland since 1969 has shown that we need something more than...

Prevention of Terrorism (Additional Powers) Bill (Allocation of Time) (2 Apr 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., it is up to the Home Secretary to convince people that the difficulty or emergency exists. I cannot speak for everybody, but many people in my constituency have suffered under the prevention of terrorism Act in the past. Many people now recognise that the PTA is obsolete and unnecessary legislation and a denial of civil liberties. The Bill is a further denial of civil liberties and the...

Prevention of Terrorism (Additional Powers) Bill: Power to Stop and Search Pedestrians (2 Apr 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...protests made yesterday and this morning by a considerable number of hon. Members that we were able to table and discuss amendments. The Bill builds on bad legislation known as the prevention of terrorism Act, which has resulted not in the prevention of terrorism but in many Irish people—so far as Great Britain is concerned, they are mainly in London—being stopped, searched, held for...

Prayers: Latin America (18 Oct 1995)

Jeremy Corbyn: name deploring the fact that General Pinochet visited Britain two weeks ago. Conservative Members might well smile about that, but their party was the mainstay of his regime during his reign of terror in Chile when the British Tory Government were happy to supply him with arms. I want to put on record my disgust, and the disgust of many other people, that such an evil man was allowed to...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill: After Clause 136 (20 Oct 1994)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...cheaply in the first place; often, conversions are done cheaply and, for that reason, there is no soundproofing or sound insulation. It means that what one family consider normal behaviour can be terrorism for the family above or below, even though such behaviour can simply be the problem of five or six-year-old children running around a flat. People who live in detached or semi-detached...

Ireland (Joint Declaration) (15 Dec 1993)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Gerry Adams, the leader of the Sinn Fein? In the spirit of expanding democracy in Northern Ireland and in the whole country, what consideration has he given to the repeal of the prevention of terrorism Act, to a lifting of the ban on Gerry Adam's movements to this country and to the ending of the broadcasting ban on Sinn Fein so that the peace process may be further hastened in Northern...
