Most recents (24)

65 Liberals abstained from a vote to end PUNITIVE litigation against Indigenous survivors of #genocide child abuse in #Canada.

They are privately making excuses when confronted by constituents.

I've exposed one excuse in the below quoted-retweet.

The next is equally false...
Patty Hajdu (#ThunderBaySuperiorNorth) @PattyHajdu is spreading lies as well!

She is privately telling her constituents that the cabinet had to abstain because the vote involved litigation presently before the courts.

This is objectively false.

Gov'ts in #Canada vote on motions and even pass legislation to end lawsuits!

Recently, MB Premier @BrianPallister & his entire caucus voted to end a lawsuit supporting Indigenous children.

(Itself an act of #apartheid. Not just history. It's ongoing.)

Deine Freund:innen tolerieren Gewalt in #Palästina weil #Israel die einzige 'Demokratie' im Nahen Osten ist?

Lasst uns einmal einen Blick auf Israel's rechtsextreme Regierung sowie anti-demokratischen Gesetze werfen.
1. Benjamin Netanyahu, der Premier von #Israel wird der Korruption beschuldigt.
> Netanyahu wird wegen Bestechung, des Betrugs und der Veruntreuung angeklagt. Er hat mehrmals versucht dem Verfahren zu entgehen.

bbc.com/news/world-mid…
2. #Israel's Regierung ist eine Koalition aus rechtsextremen Organisationen.
> HaTzionut HaDatit und andere religiös-zionistische Parteien sind homophob, sexistisch und sind für jüdische Vorherrschaft und #Apartheid.

#Israel's violence against #Palestinians generally, and #Gaza specifically, has nothing to do with any reasonable conception of #selfdefense. It is rather the assertion of a despotic power of life and death over anyone resisting its #ethnocracy, #ethniccleansing and #apartheid
It is for that reason I have referred to its peace treaties with the #AxisOfAutocracy as the #NimrodAccords: in the Quran, when Abraham confronts Nimrod with God's power over life and death, Nimrod responds "I, took, give life and cause death."
Abraham responds by asking him to cause the sun to rise from the west, revealing the falseness of the despot's claim of absolute sovereignty.

1. I've written the following 2 the editor of @JEPnews &challenged 'journalist' Tom Ogg 2 a live public debate on #Palestine #Israel & #Apartheid will he take it up, given he has so much 2 say. So Mr Ogg your 'self righteous bore' & 'rabid antisemite' here, the gauntlet is laid!
2. Dear Editor
 
Many thanks for taking the time to email me.
 
Unfortunately I feel, having written many letters over the years, the moment for writing letter has passed.  I and we as a group would just appreciate being given a fair hearing in the future.
3. The coverage of our protest has been completely disingenuous and more than wanting and not due to journalists not knowing what we said and why we said it, indeed I had been interviewed both prior and subsequent to the protest.

At this moment the Israeli police is conducting a mass detention campaign against Palestinian citizens of Israel. Our people are under attack and we demand international protection. Shamefully most of the world has ignored our situation. Here are some facts (Thread).
We are over 20% of Israel’s population, 1.8 million approximately, living under a system of institutional discrimination & persecution described by @hrw, @btselem & Palestinian human rights organizations as #Apartheid: Ignoring this means complicity with this reality.
We took over our streets to peacefully demonstrate for #Jerusalem and our people’s rights. We were met with police brutality & complicity with Zionist extremists that attacked us, including in our homes, the streets, universities, work places, etc.

RE: Indigenous foster kids force to get IUDs

Beware this colonizer "reasoning". They are trying to deflect responsibility for Canada's crimes back on Indigenous people.

The National Inquiry into #MMIWG Final Report made it clear that #Canada is responsible...
#Canada has created generational dysfunction through its Constitutional #apartheid and systems of #genocide and other #CrimesAgainstHumanity.

Canada kidnaps Indigenous kids into foster care and then fails to protect them from sexual assault. IUDs for kids is not a solution...
On top of that, this person pushes the debunked narrative that sexual assault is predominantly Indigenous-on-Indigenous violence in Indigenous communities, therefore blame Indigenous people.

This is a racist colonizer lie...

I was informed today that social workers in BC have forced Indigenous children under the age of 10 to have IUDs inserted by doctors.

Within the last decade. Then they failed to ensure these children have follow up care.

#Canada is committing genocide against Indigenous nations.
In what reality does a social worker believe the appropriate response to a nine year old in foster care who is at risk of STATUTORY RAPE is NOT TO PROTECT THEM, but to force that child to be subjected to an IUD insertion?

#Canada. Indigenous children. 21st Century.

HORRIFIC.
If this has happened to you, please consider reporting it to the Representative for Children and Youth in BC.

We are being told that we should separate Jewish people from #Jewish state of #Israel. The same people refuse to separate Muslims from Al Quida, ISIS, etc. who refuse to separate #Palestinians from #Hamas, Islamic Jihad, or separate progressive #left from China, Russia, et
> Their argument for the above is, all Muslims have same religion & sympathise with ISIS, Al-Quida objectives. They say #Palestinians elected #Hamas so they're all terrorists. They call left #Antisemitic for supporting #Palestinian struggle & opposing Israeli #apartheid system
> practiced in Israel & occupied territories, siege of #Gaza, continuous encroachment on Palestinian land, houses & religious sites by fundamentalist/ extremist Western #settlers. Furthermore, they dislike Left's opposition to sanctions on #Iran as it hurts ordinary people.

From the river to the sea, Palestinians are collectively on strike today in the largest national action in in many, many decades, perhaps since 1936.
For Palestinians in cities and towns inside Israel, participating in the strike as they are, declares they are Palestinian while surrounded by Israeli Jews just days after zionist Lynch mobs were roaming the streets looking for Palestinians to attack.
Remember one state, Israel, rules from the river to the sea but half the population in the land is Palestinian. At the same time, Israeli law declares that whole area a Jewish state where ONLY the Jewish people have a right to national self-determination. #Apartheid

1/ A year ago, @visualizingpal launched #PalestineToday, telling the story of 1,200 historical towns, villages and cities, and highlighting how the #Nakba and the foundation of #Israel in 1948 created the fractured #Palestinian geography that we see today today.visualizingpalestine.org
2/ Looking at the history of the region in this way helps us to put today's events in context. Eg. in "mixed cities" like #Jaffa, #Haifa or #Lydd, where many #Palestinians were forcibly displaced in 1948, and those that remained became an isolated minority today.visualizingpalestine.org/lydda/
3/ In the #GazaStrip, where nearly 70% of the population are refugees originating from towns and villages in what became #Israel, the population of towns and cities like #Gaza, #Rafah and #KhanYounis have increased massively today.visualizingpalestine.org/rafah/

Middlebury students were attacked for speaking out against Israeli apartheid & ethnic cleansing—like what’s happening in #SaveSheikhJarrah and #DefendGaza.

@Middlebury refused to protect students from racist attacks, and we call on them to do so today.
palestinelegal.org/news/2021/5/12…
After Students for Justice in Palestine launched a campaign to end Israeli apartheid, the group’s posters were vandalized, its Palestinian co-president received threats, and @Middlebury pressured SJP's Jewish co-president to delete language critical of Zionism from their website.
Instead of protecting its students, Middlebury issued a muddled statement associating advocacy for Palestinian equality with antisemitism.

@Middlebury has since refused to make a public statement condemning anti-Palestinian racism and recognizing SJP’s right to exist.

THREAD: 6 Things to Know about Jerusalem violence

Amidst all the headlines and breaking news, it can be confusing to make sense of what’s happening in #Palestine/#Israel right now. Here are 6 things you need to know to understand what’s going on:
1) Israel has been escalating tensions in #Jerusalem for weeks, including placing new restrictions on Palestinians marking Ramadan, the violent suppression of Palestinians protesting evictions of families in #SheikhJarrah by settlers,
and soldiers assaulting worshippers in Al Aqsa Mosque.

Just coming back from #Sheikhjarrah in what has become a typical night for the families of the neighbourhood and their friends. I am just a privileged observer, but I am more angry and still smell of the skunk water spread by settlers. THREAD
We were just people, young and old, jerusalemites and journalists. Maybe 200 as there is a check point on both sides of the street preventing any supporter to stand in solidarity (I could pretend to be a fixer)
It s after iftar, people are singing and chanting demonstrating in front of the houses that are set to be stolen from them...

Too often the only things we read about in western media about Pakistan are stories about corruption & violence, if media covers this beautiful country at all. This 📸 of brown bear in the country's Deosai plateau region brings me such joy.1

RT @omar_quraishi Gilgit Baltistan
One of my former grad students is from this stunning region. Inshallah I will one day see Pakistan's beautiful wildlife and ecosystems for myself #LoveNature #Fight4Nature
Heartwarming to see such positive response from people to 📸brown bear from Pakistan, including citizens from that beautiful country. I'd love to hear about nature from other similarly under-reported or poorly reported regions of🌍 - Palestine, Syria, Kurdistan, Afghanistan etc.

As we approach the 73rd anniversary of the Palestinian #Nakba,
we must ask: what kind of world do we live in that fails to recognise a crime committed against an entire nation, and then fails to intervene as further crimes and violations are committed?
#Palestine
#Jerusalem
The fact that Israeli exceptionalism has resulted in it becoming an #Apartheid State, is mainly due to the world's failure to put a stop to this settler colonial project which makes a mockery of the so called International Community.

#Palestine
#Jerusalem
#Nakba
Criminalising the criticism of Israel under the false pretence of Anti-Semitism has only led to the Zionist state expanding its systemic racism & discriminatory policies against the people of #Palestine, who are the rightful owners, proprietors & inhabitants of this land

@CoachFelecia From time-to-time, ethnic personalities similar to that of #AndyNgo have appeared in right-wing movements ..

You just have to look for them.

These "ethnic" individuals aren't there to discover the truth!
@CoachFelecia They are their to provide a service. That is their value.

What is the service? They are weaponized to confuse the public while empowering "lily-white" delusions about black people.
@CoachFelecia These individuals...

This article, it seems to imply that some wealthy individuals are employing diversity to sabotage diversity, employing diversity inorder to create new (and misleading) narratives about diversity — even question its value.

Between this tweet and the one above it in that thread, the verdict is:

"It's the voters and policy, not Canada!"

No, it's Canada. The Charter and human rights laws cannot ameliorate tyranny of the majority without some fiction of Canada as a legally responsible person...
If we fail to hold #Canada accountable for crimes it commits b/c "voters", then we allow #Canada (or other states) to have supremacy over, or immunity from, the obligations of a legal person.

A mistake b/c then no one is accountable, and tyranny of the majority thrives...
No one is accountable b/c blaming voters is an empty judgement.

We can't force all voters to stop #Canada's #apartheid & #genocide. That's undemocratic.

But Canada and its leaders can be prosecuted. That's justice.

Plus it deters future leaders from committing these crimes...
