International Terrorism (4 Oct 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...anyone from this country to anywhere where they would face the death penalty. The same applies in any other country that has abolished the death penalty. It does not help our cause in opposing any terrorist act if we reduce our own standards and diminish our own laws. We should be careful about how we label organisations. Last week, as I came away from the Muslim welfare centre in my...

Conflict in Ethiopia (16 Nov 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of a humanitarian kind. We must ensure that we do not supply arms that fuel this conflict to any actor on this field and that arms that we sell elsewhere do not end up in Ethiopia, because the terror, death and real problems that the people of Ethiopia face—drought, famine, poverty, the lack of medical aid and other issues—must be addressed as quickly as possible. Ethiopia was the one...

Adjournment (Christmas) (19 Dec 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...fundamental injustice of the treatment of the Palestinian people and the need for an active peace process lie at the heart of much of the world's problems, especially in the context of the war on terrorism. There is a need to end the blanket support and approval of Israel's action and to promote an active peace process. The continuation of the United States campaign against terrorism...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 17 — Commission of offences abroad (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...they are being granted a place of safety. On the question of interpretation, all those who took part in the struggle in Chechnya and who sought asylum in this country from Russia have been labelled terrorists by the Russian Government, whether or not they took part in any military activity. It is a convenient label for the Russian Government to use. The same applies to those who in the...

Justice and Security Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...power of the secret state: the very large power held by the security services in our society and how, in every western state, they have grown enormously since 2001 and the declaration of the war on terror. Guantanamo Bay is a product of that thinking. It is a most evil institution that has treated people abominably, denied them any right to justice or proper access to judicial process, and...

Support For Members Who Have Chosen Not To Take Their Seats (10 Mar 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...circumstances, the latest being Robert McCartney. Every loss of life and every act of violence is a tragedy. All the sanctions and illiberal Acts that were applied in the 1970s—the prevention of terrorism Acts, the emergency powers Act, all the orders, internment, the broadcasting ban, the travel ban and all the other measures did not take matters forward very much. What started to take...

Extradition (19 Dec 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am in good company. I shall be brief. I rise because I was slightly concerned by the fact that when the Minister introduced the regulations, he set them in the context of the current issues of terrorism and the legislation that the House enacted last week—in my view, regrettably—to bring into effect new anti-terrorist measures. It seems that there is a danger of confusing several...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Foreign Affairs and International Development (15 May 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...poor, extremely corrupt and, to some extent, dominated by drug users, and the streets of our country have not been made any safer. Like many other countries, we have passed a series of anti-terror laws that are draconian to say the least. We have to learn a lesson about what intervention means and what the war on terror, inspired by George Bush in 2002, means for Afghanistan, Iraq and the...

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: G20 and Paris Attacks (17 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...to and solidarity with the people of Paris in the wake of the horrific and unjustified attacks on the people who suffered in that city last Friday night. That solidarity extends to all victims of terrorism and conflict, whether they be in Paris, Beirut, Ankara or Syria itself. Absolutely nothing can justify the deliberate targeting of civilians by anyone, anywhere, ever. These contemptible...

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...

International Affairs (27 Nov 2003)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of its people, has in fact resulted in a lot of George Bush's cronies being able to buy up a lot of real estate very cheaply indeed. We need to think about where that will lead. The war on terror declared by George Bush after 11 September 2001 is simplistic in approach. It led us into Afghanistan, where there were 8,000 dead, and it has led us into Iraq, with all the dead there. I suspect...

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...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...many of us are spending a lot of time encouraging young people to ensure that they are registered to vote. It is their future that is at stake. Everyone in this House understands the risks posed by terrorism. This city, London, has experienced it before, as have other cities here and around the world. We will of course support strong measures to give the police and security services the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...I am sure the hon. Gentleman will make a wonderful contribution when he gets to make his speech. No deal threatens peace and stability in Northern Ireland, and threatens our policing and counter-terrorism co-operation with Europe. No deal will mean food shortages and medical shortages, and it will bring chaos to our ports and transport networks. Earlier, we had a Minister at the Dispatch...

Report of the Iraq Inquiry (6 Jul 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and society. As the report indicates, the occupation fostered a lethal sectarianism that turned into a civil war. Instead of protecting security at home or abroad, the war fuelled and spread terrorism across the region. Sunday’s suicide bomb attack in Baghdad that killed over 250 people, the deadliest so far, was carried out by a group whose origins lie in the aftermath of the invasion....

Democratic Republic of Congo (19 Apr 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...dangerous. Several speakers mentioned street children. Unless we do something to support street children—the victims of war—by giving them hope, education and housing, they will become the terror gangs, criminals and fighters of tomorrow. They know no other course. Finally, we must consider what the international mineral companies are doing and where coltan, diamonds, gold and all...

International Terrorism (Indonesia) (23 Oct 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...militia took over. I do not know the death toll for the period after the referendum, but it ran into thousands. That was in addition to the 200,000 people who died during the period of Indonesian terror in East Timor from 1974. One hopes that East Timor will have a peaceful and prosperous future. East Timor is not the only place in Indonesia where there have been huge problems. I attended...

Orders of the Day — Identity Cards Bill (20 Dec 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...in any way. I ask Members to think carefully about the kind of society that we are creating with the Bill, and about what kind of society we want to live in. The Bill will not solve crime, fraud or terrorism; it represents the comfort zone of the high-technology security industry, which will be easily hacked into. A much better form of security is protection of the individual and respect...

Orders of the Day — Latin America (26 Jul 1993)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...support military regimes and because they believed in a genuine form of liberty. Although no one can be happy with the current situation in Peru and Bolivia, there is an economic dimension to the terror. The poverty in many of the rural areas and the lack of decent prices for the primary products produced by the campesinos, particularly those in the Andean region, have turned those people...
