In the light of the new #coronavirus cases in #Osun, let's very briefly talk about #Nigeria's (or Africa's borders). It was sometime last year that I found that probably the 4th largest concentration of Ogbomoso indigenes after Ogbomoso itself, Ibadan and Kano, is in Abidjan.
Basically, this Nigerian community has links with that part of #IvoryCoast because of trade routes that predate the British and the French, and apparently, those trade routes are still in use, which is how people made it through #Nigeria's ostensibly closed borders.
Internet service provider went down, so the thread will continue shortly.

I've seen replies that saying Ogbomoso people are also strong in #Jos and #Ghana, but for the purposes of this, I'll stick with what Mr Akin Akinbola, a much older man from Ogbomoso, told me in Paris.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

#Belgium🇧🇪: We are attending today the #AssangeDay event organised in Brussels to call on the Belgian government to:

1⃣: Recognise #JulianAssange as a political prisoner
2⃣: Send observers to his trial
3⃣: Grant him protection
4⃣: Do its utmost to avoid his extradition to the US
"We are receiving lots of support from all over the world, also in Europe. Recently, the @coe voted unanimously that Julian should not be extradited and that he must be immediately freed. All these actions are very important. Thank you"
John Shipton, Julian Assange's father
"#Assange doesn't deserve what he's going through; he doesn't deserve to be in prison. He doesn't deserve to be held in solitary confinement for more than nine months. According to the @UN Special Rapporteur for Torture, this is a case of psychological torture" @abellanger49

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

#Antisemitic Incident !!!

#Belgium #Aalst

The #Belgian city of #Aalst returns the #award of its #carnival as a #Worldheritage Site.
Background are allegations of #racism and #antisemitism.
Mayor Christoph D'Haese said that one has had enough of the "grotesque #complaints" and let the #carnival be #deleted from the list. He thus came before a decision of @UNESCO before.
he had already considered removing the #Aalst #Carnival from World Heritage at the upcoming mid-month meeting.
The controversy has been going on since #spring. At that time D'Haese defended a float of the procession,

A palpable revival of #UniversalJurisdiction is underway in Europe.
Here are 7 examples of recent important activities (trials, arrests, investigations) that have taken place only in the last few weeks.
There are certainly more that I am unaware of.
And certainly more to come.
1. #Sweden
>> Arrest of an Iranian national allegedly involved in the #1988Massacre of thousands of detainees. First ever #UniversalJurisdiction case on #Iran to go ahead.

1. For yrs, anti-#Israel NGOs have lobbied #Europe gov'ts for product labeling as a stepping stone to full-fledged #BDS.
2. We discovered that NGOs pushing for labeling ironically receive large funds from these same #Europe gov'ts. Why are gov'ts paying NGOs to lobby themselves? #Irony
3. A little background: In 2016, @fidh_en took credit for #France 🇫🇷 gov't decision to label products.

Here’s a serious warning from Col. Başıbüyük @obasibuyuk90: Expect Major #ISIS Attacks in Europe #EU following #Turkey #Syria Op & Ceasefire. I consider the Colonel a solid source with implacable record & expertise. Think: Who wants to score geopolitical points with #ISIS Attacks
Let me give you a hint here (not that majority of my followers need any hints😉): Which globalist Factions have been so very alarmed & unhappy with #USA & #Russia cooperating on #MiddleEast issues? And remember: #MSM has been on this faction’s side. Okay?!
Here’s a bonus hint: That faction has been the loudest in opposing #Trump #Syria deal, and been warning (fear-mongering) on the peace efforts by #Russia-#Trump-#Assad by playing “This will revive #ISIS” card. Just saying!

1. "More people say openly that #Erdogan's attitude reminds them of #Hitler."
Several hundred people, including several dozen civilians, have been killed in #Syria since the beginning of the #Turkish attack. About 200,000 people had to leave their homes.
2. Drastic executions of civilians are carried out. #ISIS fighters are escaping from prisons with the help of the #Turkish army. The whole world watches Erdogan's actions in disbelief and fear. Many countries and organizations are taking action against the Turkish operation.
3. #Trump, who probably wants to regain his image by imposing sanctions on three Turkish ministers, also belongs to them.
In addition, #Turkey may face further consequences:
#UEFA is sharply responding to the political provocations of Turkish players in the match against France.

#BREAKING:
Kurdish Human right activist & The secretary-general of the Future Syria Party,Ms #Hervin_Khalaf ,has been raped & then stoned to death by #Turkey backed Jihadists near #Hasakah during Turkey's ethnic cleansing operation against #Kurds in Syria. @brett_mcgurk #amnesty
@brett_mcgurk "This happened almost precisely 3 years ago:Kurdish forces raised the US flag in Tal Abyad, while US soldiers were threatened by Turkish-backed rebels.

The President
@realDonaldTrump
could learn something about honour & loyalty from these fine men & women"
via @MsJulieLenarz
@brett_mcgurk @realDonaldTrump @MsJulieLenarz On Fox News:
No nation will ever have a reason to trust America or turn to US for support since they are abandoning the Kurds. Kurds done hard fight against ISIS but now they feel betrayed. US government will bury human rights if they have a deal with Islamic Republic dictators.

Time to get a few things straight about Anouar Haddouchi, #IslamicState member from #Belgium whose capture by SDF was recently confirmed. While the exact moment wasn’t mentioned here, there were rumors that he was caught since March already (1/7)
Haddouchi is often nicknamed the ‘executioner of Raqqah’ these days. Based on declarations of a local councillor, about a certain ‘Abu Souleymen al-Belgiki’ who beheaded more than 100 people there (2/7) 7sur7.be/home/le-parque…
Haddouchi was known as ‘Abu Souleymen’ indeed, but at least two other Belgian foreign fighters were. And as far as we know, an investigation by the Belgian judiciary did not unearth decisive proof about Haddouchi being this executioner (3/7)
