#Afghan children asleep hungry on the roadside. I’ve heard that when you become extremely hungry, sleep comes fast and easily no matter if you have a pillow/mattress beneath you. This is the saddest photo I have ever seen. Support @ASEELApp and help Afghan children. #Afghanistan Image
I have alerted my friends in Kabul to look around for these two and help me identify them. Hopefully, we identify them and be able to help them every month with food, shoes, clothes and winter package for upcoming winter. If we get successful, I will let you all know to help.
If you are thinking to help children in Afghanistan, plz donate to any campaign on @ASEELApp or the following campaign that I have organized. Be sure that each penny will help someone in Afghanistan.…

‘In my country it is normal to have sex with young boys', says Rahman Arsala, 32-year-old #Afghan migrant, jailed for raping a 12-year-old boy.

He defended his vile abuse of multiple boys and girls as 'normal' cultural practice in his home country.
The defense lawyer asked the judge to consider the 'cultural element' of the case, saying it was common practice for men to ‘use’ underage boys in Afghanistan.

Arsala said: 'In my country, it is normal to use young boys because women are inaccessible’
Arsala was referring to the practice of Bacha Bazi where men ‘use’ underage boys to ‘satisfy their sexual needs’.

"Women are for children, boys are for pleasure", as the saying in Afghanistan went.

thread 🧵
Central Banking & SWIFT SYSTEM.
yesterday, a young #Afghan businessman approached me, who was asked by AIB(Afghanistan Islamic Bank) to provide their Memorandum of Association because he made a TT payment through SWIFT system in china. here is d crazy process of it.
1st, AIB sends money to Da Afghanistan Bank aka DAB which sends it to a Turkish Bank which then sends it to a Chinese Bank. despite providing all other documents, d guy had to provide a memorandum of Association in English. He had it in Dari, but couldn't translate it..
to English since this is a small firm in a Province of Afghanistan. for larger companies, it's almost impossible to do large transactions which is why many people shut their businesses or move to neighboring countries despite knowing well they will be discriminated there.

🚨📣15 more families are supported in Samangan with your donations through the campaign organized by @toimohammadbegzad.📣🚨

(1/4) ⤵️⤵️
Samangan is a province located on the northern side of the country. It is one of the most underserved and remote regions in Afg, consisting of 59% of mountainous terrain. Thus, it makes it hard for families living there to have easy and immediate access to aid and food. (2/4)
However, our volunteer team is willing to visit the most remote places and help families with your donations.

⚠️This campaign is still active, and we have to urgently support more families on the waiting list as they are going through acute hunger. (3/4)

#PressFreedom in #Afghanistan has vanished since the #Taliban takeover.
But #Afghan women journalists stand up: I met with them at Radio Begum, which

This was surely the most important interview in this regard that I gave in the last 12 months. A joined attempt to figure out how much I can say on air, showing solidarity with Free Media and Women in #Afghanistan.

Thank you Farida and @TOLOnews for making this possible.

Will Russia defeat the dollar and revive the rouble, or will it cut off Europe’s Gas?…
Excellent news to #Ukraine & #Russia, not to the #US

Russia’s deputy MOD minister: #Moscow has decided to fundamentally cut back military activity in the direction of #Kyiv & #Chernigiv”.Ukraine ready to sign a deal f neutrality & refrain from agreement against Russia's interest
This si the beginning of the deal and not the end of the war. Other points are still in discussion but it shows that #Ukraine understood there is no other way but to negotiate.

#Russia doesn't mind Ukraine to be part of the European Union but not NATO.

The fate of #refugees (#Ukrainians,#Syrians, #Afghan, #Africans)literally depends on WHERE they filed their applications. Read our fresh report based on original data,which shows that Boston Asylum Office fosters a culture of suspicion toward #AsylumSeekers @ACLUMaine @ILAPmaine Image
-From 2015 to 2020, the Boston Asylum Office approved a mere 15% of asylum applications compared to the national approval rate at 28%.
-The approval rate in Boston plummeted to 11% in 2021, while the national average remained at 27%…
-@ACLUMaine @ILAPmaine Refugee and Human Rights Clinic (RHRC) at @UMaineLaw + me, analyzed 1000s of documents obtained through FOIA & conducted 100+ interviews to answer a simple question:

- Why does the Boston Asylum Office approve such a small percentage of asylum cases? Image

The Cardiff Philharmonic has cancelled an all-Tchaikovsky programme as "inappropriate at this time."
The concert included his decidedly apolitical second symphony, known as the Little Russian.

"Democracy and Freedom"

The orchestra says: "In light of the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine, Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra, with the agreement of St David’s Hall, feel the previously advertised programme including the 1812 Overture to be inappropriate at this time."
#Ukraine President @ZelenskyyUa and all Ukrainians should read this:

Be ready: The war is not between #Russia and #Ukraine. It is between the #USA & Russia. It is between #NATO and Russia. Ukraine is only the beginning and if Europe wants to avoid what comes next, diplomacy is the only way forward. Warmongers are thrilled to see more conflicts.
Prsdnt Putin explained that NATO should return to the limit of 1997 before 16 new countries were added. The #US violated the spirit of the 1990 agreement between Gorbachev & Regan. The Ukrainian military op is only the beginning of a harsh wrestling match between Russia & the US.
The problem is the fact that the 16 countries added to NATO have also US military bases. If #Russia wants to de-nuclearise all former Soviet Union countries, it means a much larger scale conflict that has only begun in #Ukraine.

THREAD 🧵: Why we need an #AfghanAdjustmentAct ASAP

After our #Afghan withdrawal, over 76,000 Afghans were airlifted out of #Afghanistan to the U.S, including Special Immigrant Visa (SIV)-eligible individuals, their family members, and other Afghans who aided the U.S., as well as those who would qualify for #refugee status.
Most of these individuals have been or will be admitted to the U.S. under parole, a process that affords temporary lawful presence in the United States for “urgent humanitarian reasons.”

Key word– ❗️TEMPORARY❗️

#Russia started a "special military operation" in Donbas. Heavy shelling is hitting the province. Prsdnt Vladimir Putin said he is not planning to occupy #Ukraine. Putin asked the Ukrainian army to lay down its weapons. "Kyiv will be responsible for possible bloodshed," he said.
#Europe turned deaf ears on #Russia's request to stop @NATO's expansion & believed Putin was not seriously concerned and that he will behave as his predecessors. The #US want #Moscow to be involved in a war but Putin is showing his determination to allow the west another thought.
A missile hit the #Ukraine capital Kyiv, leading to an exodus of thousands of people from the eastern front and the capital towards the western borders. Expect long queues on banks, foreign currency withdrawal, provision and other necessities.
