#Aarey facts #Activists don’t tell us

Environmental Impact Assessment (#EIA) report of having @MumbaiMetro3 carshed in #Aarey was prepared not by #MMRCL or any govt agencies but by a neutral #Japanese agency - #JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency)?

#Aarey Facts we don’t know 2

In Oct 2018, #MumbaiHC accepted govt’s argument that the #Aarey land will not be used for ANY #commercial project and a monitoring and supervising mechanism would be in place to ensure that the #conditions imposed on the MMRCL are met

#Aarey Facts we don’t know 3

Only #2 % of #Aarey land is used for #Metro

There are no #Adivasi padas nor #wildlife per se in the 30-hectare area, which is bound on 3 sides by major roads-
Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Rd
Marol-Maroshi road &
Goregaon-Mulund Link Road

Here is a social experiment.

Will I be reported to @Twitter for using offensive and demeaning language if I use -- correctly -- the word "#niggardly" -- in a sentence?

The Hawaii Supreme Court rejected the tax assessor's approach as a niggardly construction of the statute.
I've been reviewing decisions of the #HawaiiSupremeCourt on the question of whether #nonprofits were properly charged a #generalexcise #tax under Hawaiian law for various activities and operations that produced #income to the organization.
Courts begin (and end) their principal analysis of such issues by examining an underlying tax law, code, rule, or regulation.

Before you defend the mullahs in #Iran & stop efforts to hold them accountable--know the struggle of the #Iranian people & their pains and sufferings as described by imprisoned #humanrights activist #GolrokhIraee women.ncr-iran.org/2019/01/06/gol… 1/18
We, who tolerated the pain, the poverty, the fall into the depths of fundamentalism, and over a century of tyranny. We, who were lashed but stood up. We, who lost our people but survived. We, who spread our empty tablecloths but carried on.

#Iran #FreeIran
2/18
By the grave of our pens, we sang the song of freedom & did not relent. Now we're pounding at the trembling pillars of fundamentalism. Until the cracks in the wall of theocracy r widened, we shall stand, even if the hangman’s poisonous dagger pierces in2 our body..

Sounds Like #USA #TSA, No? Hundreds of Thousands Listed, Including #Journalists & #Activists Just ... Because. Oh, and the reasons/grounds: always classified. So you can’t be told why. Hallelujah!!
BTW: Were there any “Red Alerts” for #USA #CIA #BlackOps #Renditions via #GhostPlanes throughout the globe, including #EU? Hmmmm. Didn’t think so;-)

At the @MM_JCCManhattan for a conversation between @bariweiss @BTselemUSA brand new US director @simonerzim @AJCGlobal @AviMayer and @tabletmag editor at large (?) @CarlyPildis.
.@simonerzim wow. Explaining why she is sitting in this seat. On the power of encountering Palestinian families evicted from their homes in Sheikh Jarakh, seeing for the first time the meaning to Palestinians of the 🇮🇱 flag, I can’t really summarize in a tweet how powerful. Watch
@AviMayer: American and Israeli jews don’t get each other. Sees himself as a translator. Wants to mend the relationship.
