The shock is still fresh and it is profound. Well over one hundred individuals lost their lives in the devastating explosion in Beirut, and at present there are estimated to be around 5000 people injured.
A member of the German Embassy also lost her life. On behalf of the German Government, Foreign Minister Maas expressed his deepest sympathy to her relatives: “Our worst fears have been confirmed. We are deeply saddened by the death of our colleague.”
During a telephone conversation with his Lebanese counterpart, Maas pledged to initiate emergency measures. It is clear to Heiko Maas that “in this hour of need, we are there to help. The people in Beirut need to know that we will not abandon them.”

Just doing a little late night perusing of INGO's statements of solidarity with the Black community from this week... #DevCommsNerd

While some mentioned how important diversity was, NOT ONE mentioned starting where they are and changing their own governance and leadership. /1
Not the biggies like @WorldVisionUSA, @CARE, @CatholicRelief, @SavetheChildren. Not the "cool" ones like @charitywater or @PIH or @Heifer or @Ashoka or @OxfamAmerica. Not the humanitarian ones like @mercycorps or @RESCUEorg or @MSF_USA. Not @PlanUSA. Not @PactWorld. Not @fhi360.
When it comes to anti-Black racism work and #globaldev or #socialgood work, we have to start right where we are.

No more "statements" and intellectualization and crappy DEI training, please. how-matters.org/2020/06/01/way… /3

"The @WFP spokesperson told @Devex “...Some people find it inspirational & it motivates them to become committed supporters to the organisation.”

Bullshit. Donors do not find it inspirational. Their guilt, pity & shame are used like cash machines. devex.com/news/world-foo… /1
Must we say it about #povertyporn yet again?

Yes we must:

Charitable portrayals of “helping” often conjure up victimhood and passivity in order to validate the assistance being given. #devcomms #comms4dev #comms4good #fundraising /2
There is a growing awareness that these portrayals uphold - rather than counteract - historical, deeply colonial, and continually politicized notions of “the other.”

And it is not ok. /3

#EU #Palestine #Isrsel #Terror #Aid

The EU appears to continue to fund non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Palestinian territories that employ terrorists. An EU representative also assured the Palestinian NGOs that a new EU counter-terrorism clause would not change this.
On August 23, a cell of the PFLP terrorist group carried out an explosive attack and murdered teenage girl Rina Shnerb, 17, her father and brother were seriously injured.
After Israeli security forces smashed the terror network, the investigators found that several of the arrested worked for Palestinian NGOs, some of them in senior positions. The organizations are funded by the EU.

#PuertoRico still doesn't seem calm after so many #storms, and this Saturday there was a new 6.0 MI magnitude #earthquake on the momentum magnitude scale as part of a series of #aftershocks that have intensified since Friday night.
According to Prensa Latina, the meteorological phenomenon occurred in #Guánica, 14.87 kilometers south of #Peñuelas, at a depth of 5.04 kilometers.
On the other hand, the #NationalGuard of #PuertoRico considered declaring the island a #disaster area in order to receive additional funds after the #earthquakes.

@UNRWA #Gaza #Genf

More than half a million people in #Gaza depend on #food #aid. Every quarter there is a discounted ration per person. The #goods are ordered for the first quarter of the new year, but not yet #paid.
Whether the @UN organization can pay the salaries of its 13,000 workers in the #Gaza Strip in December is unclear. In Gaza, under the eyes of #Hamas, @UNRWA operates 276 schools, 22 health centers and distributes food. The unemployment rate is also 41% (Total PA Area 30% 2018).
@UNRWA currently cares for 5.5 million #Palestinians. But they are missing 167 million € to pay everything. It would take at least € 30 million for the current quarter and € 60 million for the second quarter of next year.

Been searching all MSM for any meaningful analysis on #Turkey #Erdogan initiated recent #Aid call to #KSA #SaudiArabia. Still zilch. With Turkey complying with #US #Iran sanctions, econ crises & being left out cold on #Khashoggi game: Was it a first attempt for reconciliation??!
As some of you may remember I covered the “Real” #Khashoggi #Turkey Case (concoction) for 2 months via the following Pinned Thread (See Screenshot Below).
One of the things experience has taught me in geopolitics: Pay little to no attention to what #MSM making big headline noise about. Instead, go after “things” they cover little (Via page B8 ;-) or do not cover.

People in rich countries don’t often hear stories about organized people improving their communities in the Global South or strong organizations pushing their governments to change policies that hurt poor people. #DevComms #aid #globaldev #NGOs /1
Rather, the aid system is built on an assumption that outside experts have the knowledge, skills, and resources that are lacking in poor countries and communities. /2
Also the aid system is predicated on marketing materials that show needy, desolate, and despondent individuals unable to help themselves, and so, the stories persist, even if they little resemble what is happening in reality, on the ground. /3

#Decolonising #Development must be approached against a dual background of (a) optimistic anticolonial pushbacks like #RhodesMustFall & (b) renewed, frantic & violent attempts to hold on to the 'white man's world' - @o_rutazibwa opens the last #SussexDev lecture of 2017 @IDS_UK
@o_rutazibwa @IDS_UK The 'bathwater' here is #development as a system (ideologies, institutions, practices) which we may need to get rid of; we need to fight the desire to hold on to 'development studies' even if it has given us our professional identities (and paychecks) @o_rutazibwa #SussexDev
@o_rutazibwa @IDS_UK The 'baby' in this story is the ideas, desires and energy - global #justice, #solidarity, #reparations - righting the past and present wrongs that persist 'after' colonialism (the end of which was never quite the rupture we sometimes imagine) - @o_rutazibwa #SussexDev
