1. Since Nazism has been trending all day, let me show you. This is Malaya Rohan in far east of #Kharkiv Oblast. I called it Shire because it’s so very precious. This was the home village of my mother for many years.
2. This was my second home during schooling and vacation home as adult. Look at its beauty👇🏻

3. Russians raped women and children here and left dead bodies in street like in #Bucha. Destroyed all of Shire. nbcnews.com/news/world/rus…

#Amnesty International

After workingthrough the reaction on the AI report below - observations:

1. looks like the meltdown of another NGO / Do-gooders group - crashing into a real war in Europe

Ukraine: Ukrainian fighting tactics endanger civilians amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
2. unable to contextualize facts and give them the appropriate position in the overall picture
3. as experts indicate: insufficient knowledge of the chosen topic ( IHL/law of armed conflict)
4. marginal communication skills - CEO made pissy statement - since then - nothing
5. no anticipation that social media is part of the war fighting environment: Russia took the @amnesty report and turned it against Ukraine
6. unclear why @amnesty Ukraine office warnings have not been taken into account
6.1: head of this office declined

Voor degenen die van de juridische details houden, draadje. In beginsel: mensenrechtenorganisaties zoals #Amnesty vervullen belangrijke taak door te signaleren als sprake is van schendingen zoals van #oorlogsrecht. Maar hier is het niet zo duidelijk dat dat ook geschonden is.
In een gewapend conflict moeten beide partijen zich houden aan het oorlogsrecht, ongeacht wie de agressor is. Rusland is hier de agressor, Oekraïne verdedigt zich. Maar beide landen zijn gebonden aan regels die vooral dienen om onnodige extra burgerslachtoffers te voorkomen.
Zo is er onderscheid tussen militaire doelwitten en burgerobjecten. Als strijdende partij burgerobject gebruikt voor de strijd, dan kan dit een legitiem militair doelwit worden. Maar alleen indien noodzakelijk & proportioneel en zoveel mogelijk voorkomen van burgerslachtoffers.

1/5 According to #Amnesty the #Zelensky regime in #Ukraine is committing #warcrimes. Civilians are used as shields. Schools, universities and hospitals are used as military bases. Attacks are launched from highly populated areas. #ZelenskyWarCriminal

2/5 Since 2014, Ukrainian forces committed genocide against ethnic Russians, which make up the majority of the Donbas population. Ethnic Russians are not considered humans by state funded ultra-right wing groups training children. #ZelenskyWarCriminal
3/5 Petal mines are scattered in #Donetsk by Ukraine to injure civilians as much as possible. The Russian army has been defusing these mines to make the streets safe. #ZelenskyWarCriminal

Ich hatte gerade eine Diskussion mit einem Angestellten von @amnesty_de an einem Stand am Bahnhof Berlin-Südkreuz über den Vorwurf, dass #Israel angeblich ein „Apartheidsstaat“ ist. Ich erzähle kurz wie das Gespräch verlaufen ist: (Thread | Unbedingt durchlesen)
Zuerst habe ich ihn gefragt, inwiefern der Vorwurf der „#Apartheid“ bezogen auf Israel Sinn ergibt, wenn man bedenkt, dass Araber nicht nur hohe Positionen in allen Bereichen des öffentlichen Lebens haben, sondern dazu auch noch per Gesetz gleichberechtigt sind: Keine Antwort.
Dann habe ich gefragt, inwiefern der Vorwurf der „Apartheid“ Sinn ergibt, wenn man auf tatsächliche Apartheidsstaaten (früheres Südafrika bsp.) schaut, in welchen es eine klare Rassentrennung in allen Bereichen des öffentlichen Lebens gab. Seine Antwort: „Ich sehe Parallelen.“

Es handelt sich um einen Krieg. Infos sind daher immer mit Vorsicht zu betrachten. /TN #Russland
Fangen wir mit einer guten Nachricht an.

Am Samstag gab es einen Angriff auf eine nukleare Forschungseinrichtung in #Charkiw. Wie die #IAEA nun mit Berufung auf die #Ukraine mitteilte, gibt es keine Schäden am nuklearen Material.

Die Einrichtung war auch vorher allen bekannt.
Der #Kreml-Sprecher #Peskow hat noch 1mal klargestellt, dass keine Atombomben in der #Ukraine eingesetzt werden.

Verschiedene Medien verbreiteten Panik wegen seines #BBC-Interviews. Die staatliche Existenz Russlands & die Ereignisse in der Ukraine hätten "nix miteinander zu tun"

@Jo_Singh_ If GOI av nothing to hide they'd let #Amnesty, #HRW & other #HumanRights Orgs. to carry out their independent investigations. Khalra exposed mass illegal cremetion grounds across Panjab, files which are sealed to this day. 6K in one of 13 districts alone!
@Jo_Singh_ Here's an honest unbias paper that provides an objective analysis of the religious, political, social and economic factors, which led to the sad and extremely tragic events in the Punjab during 1980s. No political spin unlike what's being propagated by GOI minions, but 360 view!

@hirndummy @lange_tobias_hh Völliger Quatsch! Ich beginne mal so: Bedeutet der Bericht von Amnesty, dass Juden (und nur Juden) kein Recht auf nationale Selbstbestimmung haben? Nein, es spricht den Juden dieses Recht nicht ab. Stattdessen besteht sie darauf, dass Juden nicht 1/

Fino ad agosto, nella prigione di Kandahar erano detenuti centinaia di terroristi talebani. Col cambio di regime, la situazione si è capovolta.
Abbiamo ottenuto un permesso speciale per visitare le celle che ospitano i detenuti e la visita è stata sconvolgente.
Questo carcere ospita prigionieri politici, ex militari del vecchio esercito ma soprattutto tossicodipendenti e omosessuali.
Di 1800 detenuti, 1400 sono persone con problemi di droga ed uno dei primi atti dei talebani è stato proprio quello di rastrellarli e rinchiuderli dentro.
Stessa sorte per i gay e queste immagini documentano il settore adibito a queste due fattispecie.
Le persone sono ammassate in corridoi angusti e bui. Non c'è luce, non c'è alcuna dignità per questi esseri umani. Le celle sono sporche oltre ogni immaginazione.

#Amnestyinternational has had a rather dubious role in #India. It's funding & activities have been repeatedly questioned by both UPA & NDA governments. Former PM Manmohan Singh had red flagged the NGO during #KudanKulam nuke plant issue. In fact in Feb 2014 UPA froze it's funding
In 2009 #Amnestyinternational had #FCRA issues. Even under NDA rule Amnesty funding remained rather opaque. @dir_ed probed dubious fund flow pattern. RBI put Amnesty in prior permission category due to suspect funds flow, acc to the #Govt. Even during UPA funding was suspect: BJP
MHA had #Amnestyinternational funding looked into & concluded that Human Rights cannot be an excuse for defying the law of the land.MHA said in order to circumvent the FCRA regulations Amnesty UK remitted large amounts of money to 4 entities registered in India classifying it FDI

1. oggi ci sono molte cose importanti, ma ce n'è una che se non la mettiamo noi sullo schermo radar dell'opinione pubblica non lo farà nessuno. Vi ho detto già che sono completamente contraria a come #Russia tratta #Navalny indipendentemente da come #Navalny la pensa in politica
2. vi invito però a confrontare il processo a #Navalny e il processo a Julian #Assange.Guardiamo ai fatti.#Navalny è stato processato con grande presenza della stampa e osservatori,abbiamo visto il video del cuore che ha disegnato per la moglie
3. abbiamo visto che l'intero universo mondo ha espresso condanna e solidarietà a #Navalny dal presidente del Parlamento EU, @DavidSassoli fino a tutta la politica italiana. Va bene così: questa attenzione lo protegge

A review of #Islamophobia in 2020:

The #COVID19 pandemic exacerbated Islamophobia around the globe. From #India to the U.K., #Muslims were accused of spreading the virus & evading lockdown orders.
For #Muslims, the environment meant not only being disproportionately impacted by a deadly virus but also facing targeted discrimination from those in power:

foreignpolicy.com/2020/03/28/ind…
Islamophobia in #India in 2020:
Politicians & right-wing media continued to promote anti-Muslim rhetoric & tropes, while Indian Muslims & rights activists protested against discriminatory legislation (#CAA), which rendered Indian Muslims 2nd-class citizens.

THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER:

THE US VERSION

Ant & Grasshopper :
The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and
laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold.

INDIAN Version:

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.
