Ikke-vold aksjoner virker, det vil røske opp i inntørket samvittighet; Undertrykkeren ser at du er villig til å ofre selv ditt eget liv for din gruppes #frihet, #likeverd og #verdighet, og gradvis vil han se din sak som sin sak. Han vil bli din partner i kampen.
Et eksempel på ikkevold #aksjoner.

#Frigjøring av arresterte #jøder i Berlin.

Jødenes 'ariske' hustruer #demonstrerte utenfor #Gestapos hovedkvarter i sentrum av Berlin, og etter dager av intens #ikkevold, ble jødiske mennene #frigitt, midt under #krigen, midt i #Nazi-Tyskland.
Et annet eksempel er #Gandhi's ikkevold #aksjoner mot Englands #kolonialisme som fortsatte etter #krigen; Gandhis #ikkevold aksjoner gjorde det lettere for #England til å #kapitulere med #verdighet fordi de ikke var blitt 'slått'.

Faktisk falt #koloniene som #dominobrikker.

I sat next to a pleasant elder gentleman on the plane yesterday and, during our conversation, I discovered he fervently believes all illegal immigrants coming to our borders are thieves, rapists, and gang members...because the @GOP and Administration told him so.
The man beside me spoke repeatedly of "they" and "them", venomously deriding black, brown, and other PoC as a virus that required swift eradication. I was shocked, but I was seated next to him for 3 hours.
I knew an argument would resolve nothing.
I sought to learn more about him, and soon discovered he was a Jewish Vietnam vet whose parents were murdered at #Auschwitz. I tried to lay before him the parallel of otherwise honorable Germans accepting Nazi propaganda about Jews and the need to wall/fence them off. No success.

#Bronfman , Peter #Grace , and Lewis Harder - 1979
Lewis Harder and Peter Grace go back to 1957, maybe earlier
[3] 1973: Again, Grace and Harder

Remember, Peter Grace brought Otto Ambros and other Nazi scientists and engineers to his WR Grace firm. #Ambros oversaw uranium enrichment in #Auschwitz . Very sick stuff, and history that buried because the money earned in still in power today.

Liberals have taken leave of their senses. You can’t defend stupid. Jews must walk away from the Democrats. #Auschwitz #ConcentrationCamps #AOCdeathCamps
This is all done as scare tactics. News media defending AOC. Shameful! She should be ridiculed and thrown out of Congress.
Angela Rye is completely unhinged. She is always screaming in shrill voice.

#Auschwitz began its operation on 14 June 1940, when a transport of 728 Polish political prisoners arrived. Poles were sent to the camp from all parts of German occupied Poland until fall of 1944. Up until mid-1942 they were the majority of prisoners.
A large group of prisoners were members of the Polish intelligentsia, who were considered dangerous by the German authorities on account of the authority they had among compatriots. The Germans considered these people the most likely to organise and direct a resistance movement.
The camp also held other Poles involved in conspiratorial activities, people arrested during street roundups, peasants evicted from the Zamość region as well as Warsaw inhabitants sent to Auschwitz during that city’s uprising.

Homicide always requires a certain hubris: a pride that vaunts the "wants" or "needs" of the killer over the life of the killed.

That hubris is now on display with a posting from "Auntie Lynn."
That posting directs itself to the women of Georgia (and other States adopting "#heartbeat" #abortion restrictions).

The posting pretends to be an invitational note from an old Auntie who lives in New York. Well, no, it is an invitation so it isn't a pretense in that respect.
The pretense is that it comes from one's Aunt rather than from folks involved in #murdering #uterine #children for hire. Auntie Lynn wants poor repressed mothers in #Georgia and elsewhere to know that #abortions will still be available to them in #NewYork.

Staatsanwaltschaft #Gera ermittelt seit 16 Monaten gegen @politicalbeauty wegen "Bildung einer kriminellen Vereinigung" (…) Ich seh Aktivitäten Staatsanwalt mittlerweile als politisch motiviert an & erklär gleich mal im #thread, warum. #kunstfreiheit #ZfpS
Der auch gegen @politicalbeauty ermittelnde Staatsanwalt ist Herr Zschächner, der in #Thüringen seit mehreren Jahren insbesondere mit Ermittlungen gegen linke Strukturen auffällt & der -wenn es gegen diese geht- hyperaktiv wird. (Gegen #Nazis hingegen gibt es im Vergleich wenig)
Beispiel 1: Bei #AfD-Demonstration im Bundestagswahlkampf in #Jena sangen Teilnehmer #Auschwitz-Gesänge - das sogenannte "U-Bahn-Lied" - gegen @jgstadtmitte. Herr Zschächner stellte Verfahren ein, weil wer gegen #AfD demonstriere, müsse sowas hinnehmen…

O #aborto é o mais #cruel e #covarde dos #assassinatos, a vítima é totalmente indefesa. O governador do Estado de Nova York #AndrewCuomo e dep. estaduais aprovaram(e comemoraram) uma lei que permite o aborto horas,minutos antes ou DURANTE o nascimento de uma criança. #Perverso
#AndrewCuomo, governador do Estado de Nova York EUA se diz católico mas a lei aprovada por ele (comemorou depois) é de uma perversidade inimaginável, e a comparo com os atos do #monstro #nazista #JosefMengele, médico que fazia “experimentos” perversos e mortais em #Auschwitz.
Ando horrorizada com os requintes de perversidade da lei #ReproductiveHealthAct aprovada pelo governador #AndrewCuomo (Estado de Nova York EUA) e por isto, como mãe e católica me junto aos milhares de católicos que pedem a excomunhão #excommunicateCuomo dele. #AbortoÉAssassinato

Labour Against the Witchhunt wouldn't even report a Nazi.

LAW have welcomed former MP Jim Sheridan's reinstatement by the party. He was suspended last summer over an #antisemitic statement he posted on Facebook. But LAW don't accept he did anything wrong in the first place. /1
When Labour members err, there ought to be opportunity for them to learn from the experience and make amends. But comrade Sheridan's statement after his suspension was lifted suggested his only regret was getting caught and he appeared to blame those who complained about him. /2
Let's recall what got him into trouble: Sheridan declared he had lost respect and empathy for an entire ethnic group - "the Jewish community" - due to events in @UKLabour. The #Holocaust, pogroms and persecution no longer moved him because of "their Blairite plotters". /3

1/ Dopo quello più famoso, ma alquanto dimenticato, contro i #criminali di guerra che avevan cospirato contro la #Pace (come ha fatto anche #Blair) e ordinato lo #Sterminio, si tennero altri 12 #Processi di #Norimberga, 3 dei quali contro i capitalisti industriali tedeschi
2/ I tre processi furono tenuti non dal tribunale internazionale (IMT) istituito per il primo, ma davanti a tribunali degli #USA, e sono noti come processo #flickr, processo #IGFarben e processo #Krupp.
NB L'IMT tenne altri processi, come quello contro le SS.

Gli imputati Krupp:
3/ In generale, i capi di imputazione nei tre processi furono:
1 Cospirazione contro la Pace
2 Crimini di guerra e contro l'Umanità per il saccheggio dei Paesi occupati
3 Riduzione in schiavitù di milioni di persone, prigionieri e civili e loro maltrattamento, tortura e uccisione
