their history:

Salem witch trials

Salem Witch Trials June 1692 - May 1693

The Salem Witch trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts. More than two hundred people were accused. Thirty were found guilty, nineteen of whom were executed by hanging.

Arrests were made in numerous towns beyond Salem and Salem Village (known as Danvers today). The grand juries and trials for this capital crime were conducted by a court of Oyer and Terminer in 1692 and by a superior Court of Judicature in 1693, both held in Salem town, where the hangings also took place. It was deadliest Witch Hunt in the history of colonial North America. Only fourteen other women and two man had been executed in Massachusetts in the 17th century.

This episode is one of Colonial America's most notorious cases of mass hysteria. It has been used in political rhetoric and popular literature as a vivid cautionary tale about the dangers of isolationism, religious extremism, false accusations, and lapses in due process. It was not unique, but a Colonial American example of the much broader phenomenon of Witch Trials in the early modern period, which took place also in Europe.


At 300th anniversary events in 1992 to commemorate the victims of the trials, a park was dedicated in Salem and a memorial in Danvers.

Mc CATHYISM

WHAT IS IT ?

The principle of Mc Carthyism is simple. The government officially accuses innocent people and if they don't cooperate they go to jail. this is what happened in the USA during the 50s, after the second world war during the Cold War, a campaign was carried out to denounce the communists as partisans. Mc Carthyism destroyed thousands of lives. Americans political leaders have blasphemed democratic freedoms by pretending to protect them. In the 1930's and 40's there was a Communist Party in the US that supported the Soviet Union, so this party was attacked. When Russians and Americans allied against Hitler, American communists spied for the Russians and then Americans found out about this, they wanted to exclude the communists from the society and eliminate then. Bureaucrats and journalists joined forces to create false accusations. They were looking for details to denounce so-called communists and create false files. In the late 1940s, FBI president Edgar Hoover used state secrets to track down communists. Hollywood studios and universities also used political tests to track down communists. If they did not cooperate, they were imprisoned. The most notorious person for this political discrimination is McCarthy, who has destroyed the lives of thousands of people by accusing them of communism. This is the case of the Hollywood Ten.

Joseph McCarthy (november 1908 - May 1957)

Joseph McCarthy was an American politician and attorney who served as a republican U.S senator from 1947.

McCarthy became the most visible public face of a period in United States in which Cold War tensions fueled fears of widespread communist subversion. He is known for alleging that numerous communists and soviet spies. The term "McCarthyism", coined in 1950 in reference to McCarthy's practices, was soon applied to similar anti-communist activities. Today, the term is used more broadly to mean demagogic, reckless, and unsubstantiated accusations, as well as public attacks on the character or patriotism of political opponents.

When the republicans lost control of the senate in the midterm elections that November, Mc Carthy was replaced as chairman of the investigating committee. On December 2, 1954, the Senate felt secure enough to formally condemn him on a vote of 67 to 22 for conduct "contrary to Senate traditions", thus ending the era of McCarthyism. McCarthy was largely ignored by his colleagues and by the media thereafter and died before he had completed his second term in office.

Hollywood Ten, in U.S history, 10 motion-picture producers, directors and scenarists who appeared before the House Un-American Activities Comittee in October 1947, refused to answer questions regarding their possible communist affiliations, and, after spending time in prison for contempt of Congress, were mostly blacklisted by the hollywood studios.

A witch-hunt is an attempt to find and punish a particular group of people who are being blamed for something, often simply because of their opinions and not because they have actually done anything wrong

In many societies of Sub-Saharan Africa, the fear of witches drives periodic witch-hunts during which specialist witch-finders identify suspects, with death by lynching often the result.[122] Countries particularly affected by this phenomenon include South Africa,[123] Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Zambia.[124]

Witch-hunts against children were reported by the BBC in 1999 in the Congo[125] and in Tanzania, where the government responded to attacks on women accused of being witches for having red eyes.[126] A lawsuit was launched in 2001 in Ghana, where witch-hunts are also common, by a woman accused of being a witch.[126] Witch-hunts in Africa are often led by relatives seeking the property of the accused victim.

Some people in India, mostly in villages, have the belief that witchcraft and black magic are effective. On one hand, people may seek advice from witch doctors for health, financial or marital problems.[105] On the other hand, people, especially women, are accused of witchcraft and attacked, occasionally killed.[106][107] It has been reported that mostly widows or divorcees are targeted to rob them of their property.[108] Reportedly, revered village witch-doctors are paid to brand specific persons as witches, so that they can be killed without repercussions. The existing laws have been considered ineffective in curbing the murders.[109] In June 2013, National Commission for Women (NCW) reported that according to National Crime Records Bureau statistics, 768 women had been murdered for allegedly practising witchcraft since 2008 and announced plans for newer laws.

Though the practice of "white" magic (such as faith healing) is legal in Papua New Guinea, the 1976 Sorcery Act imposed a penalty of up to 2 years in prison for the practice of "black" magic, until the Act was repealed in 2013. In 2009, the government reports that extrajudicial torture and murder of alleged witches – usually lone women – are spreading from the highland areas to cities as villagers migrate to urban areas.[140] For example, in June 2013, four women were accused of witchcraft because the family "had a 'permanent house' made of wood, and the family had tertiary educations and high social standing".[141] All of the women were tortured and Helen Rumbali was beheaded.[141] Helen Hakena, chairwoman of the North Bougainville Human Rights Committee, said that the accusations started because of economic jealousy born of a mining boom.

Witchcraft or sorcery remains a criminal offense in Saudi Arabia, although the precise nature of the crime is undefined.[144]

The frequency of prosecutions for this in the country as whole is unknown. However, in November 2009, it was reported that 118 people had been arrested in the province of Makkah that year for practicing magic and "using the Book of Allah in a derogatory manner", 74% of them being female.[145] According to Human Rights Watch in 2009, prosecutions for witchcraft and sorcery are proliferating and "Saudi courts are sanctioning a literal witch hunt by the religious police."[146]
