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...

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...

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...

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...

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?

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.

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?

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...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...he replies. We were not members of the Committee that considered the Bill, and were thus unable to pursue the anxieties that we expressed on Second Reading. We were worried that the definition of terrorism in the Bill was so broadly drawn that there was a danger of its including people who were by no stretch of the imagination terrorists, but who could be defined as such in a British...

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: Terrorism: Interpretation (10 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am sure that my hon. Friend will appreciate that this is an important point about which several of my hon. Friends and I are concerned. Can he assure us that if some rogue prosecution for terrorism should be mounted against an organisation such as Greenpeace—as my hon. F the Member for Walsall, North (Mr. Winnick) suggested—the Government would not pursue that prosecution? If there was...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Prohibition on Promotion of Homosexuality: Bullying (25 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of the day, and the effect outside Parliament. Homophobic bullying was given easy passage, which resulted in the isolation and punishment of many young gay and lesbian people, who were left in terror. Ask anyone who works with organisations such as Childline about that period and what has happened since then, and they will say the same. There is no division of opinion among Labour Members...

Orders of the Day — Football (Disorder) Bill: Commencement and Duration (27 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., and what opportunity will hon. Members have to debate them? This Bill seriously and fundamentally reduces the civil liberties of British citizens. It has to be monitored, as the prevention of terrorism Acts and other legislation are. My hon. Friend the Minister did not see me when I tried to intervene before he sat down at the end of the short discussion of the previous group of...

Business of the House (18 Jan 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...? Will she also urge the Foreign Office and its Ministers to release all documents on Britain's relations with Chile between 1973 and 1990, and those that relate to Operation Condor, which was the terror regime that Pinochet instigated throughout southern Cone? The release of those documents will undoubtedly assist the cause of those people who seek to restore democracy and human rights to...

Chile (6 Feb 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...when British planes were used to bomb the presidential palace, which resulted in the death of President Allende, the rounding up of large numbers of people into the national stadium, and a reign of terror, including the caravan of death. Many Members of Parliament worked tirelessly to help Chilean asylum seekers in the early 1970s. It would be wrong not to pause for a moment to remember...

Business of the House (1 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: My right hon. Friend will be aware that, yesterday, the Home Office published a draft statutory instrument on the prevention and suppression of terrorism, listing 21 organisations that it sought to have banned in this country. When is that measure likely to be debated in the House? My right hon. Friend will be aware also that many people have misgivings about the inclusion of certain...

Business of the House (8 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: May I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to the Terrorism Act 2000 (Proscribed Organisations) (Amendment) Order that is to be the subject of a debate under the affirmative resolution procedure next Tuesday evening? I am sure that she will recall that I raised this question with her last Thursday and asked her to consider how sensible it was to put such an order through in a...

Orders of the Day — Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (13 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...those organisations in any detail, or to engage in any other form of parliamentary scrutiny of the legislation. The history of anti-terrorist legislation is not good. The original Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was rushed through the House, and resulted in serious miscarriages of justice. The first person to be arrested in this country under the Act was Paul Hill,...

Orders of the Day — Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (13 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...history and that there is no complicity whatsoever. I also ask the Home Secretary to think through the implications of what hon. Members are saying. None of us likes bombing. None of us supports terrorism. None of us wants violence. The end game to violence and to achieving peace is a political process, giving people and their organisations the political space to argue and debate. The...
