Brexitploitation: Warum fühlen wir uns, ganz objektiv, hier wie in New York oder auf einem anderen nicht-europäuschen/europäischen Pflaster? Der Skandal in #Brüssel ist doch sein klein Paris. Jedes "Ça va?" klingt brutalst undeutsch. Nicht der Sprache wegen.
Weil es alles das in einem Echo konnotiert, was (bürgerlich-citoyengeprägte) demokratische Tradition nach 1789 bedeutet. "Aus CITROËN wird ZITRÖN Ab jetzt gibt es CITROËN auch in deutsch". "Klassierung" aber selbstredend auch hier. Niemand muss EUbürger sein. Die Festung
deligierte mit den #Dublin-Abkommen die Grenzsicherung mit Flüchtlingsabwehr an das periphere EU-Europa. Jeder weiß, was das grüne Licht Frankreichs für ein "Großdeutschland" 1988/90 bedeutete. Die #Bundespolizei (der Ex-Grenzschutz und erste deutsche Armee nach 1945)

Marino crescent, Marino - Another long thread, but worth it. Built in 1792 by Charlie Ffolliott, basically as a giant “f**k you”, resulting in the row of houses to be called ‘Spite Row’ or ‘Spite Crescent’. The reason for this? One James Caulfield, The Earl of Charlemont...(1/12)
the owner of the Casino in Marino, who really liked his views! Ill do a piece on the Casino at a later date, but suffice it to say, Caulfield had built the Casino so he could view out across his magnificent gardens & Dublin bay. He even had tunnels built so his servants...(2/12)
could bring the refreshments from his Marino House without disturbing his view.

So when developer Charlie Ffolliott announced plans to build homes on Caulfield's sea view, the Earl did everything in his power to stop him - including jacking up the price on the tolls on...(3/12)

So(1) the people at @UL want to build a #monument to former Tanaiste Mary Harney who in 2002 used the Gov Air Corps (CASA fishery, aircraft, to fly to and open of her friends off licence in 2002 #Manorhamilton #Leitrim
#TrueStory #ThursdayThoughts
#Ireland #wildAtlanticway
2. The aircraft flew to #Sligo on December 14th 2002.
The Progressive Democrats leader flew out to meet barrister friend Fergus O'Hagan to open his off licence with her husband Brian Geoghegan - at an estimated cost of EUR2,500 an hour. #TrueStory
3. After the flight Mary and her husband were collected by a government car, driven over from #Dublin that day, and taken to #Manorhamilton with a garda escort.
There was no donkey and certainly no 3 wise men around

Dublin's heart and charm is cluttered, cluttered with atmosphere not fecking 'quarters' with their chrome and their Costas. Dublin is a good second-hand shop, a Freebird records, Dandelion market, Kehoes, Mulligans, Marks Bros, where folk gather, share and hunt for diamonds....
It's Bewley's and the Savoy and tara street station and the piano at Pearse and Chapters bookshop and get the last of your wrapping paper and the walk to Croker and the canal end heaving and Patrick Kavanagh chilling on the canal..
It's the glow of the Aviva and the dart rattling in and the excitement of Grafton Street and the velvet of the Gaiety, the sticky floors and sounds of the Olympia and Thomas street with artists and those that might be drinking pints as the toilet rolls are sold on the street

It's been good these last few days to read some comradely critiques of #XR coming from various positions.

Here's an excellent thread from @XRLiberation which seems to be a group mostly within UK XR (rebellion.earth/2019/10/05/sta…)

This open letter from experienced #Paris activists who've been trying to work with XR there:

On #WorldRefugeeDay2019 & the anti-immigrant sentiment in #Sweden.

#Lebanese authorities are arresting #Syrian refugees and handing them over to the #Assad regime. They are also forcing them to demolish their shelters, intending to stop them from staying in Lebanon permanently.
#Assad's and #Russian warplanes, in addition to Assad's militiamen have killed at least 487 civilians, including 118 children and 92 women, and injured 1487 civilians in #Hama and #Idlib countryside since April 26.
Source: Syrian Network for Human Rights (.@snhr), on Jun 21.
In addition, massacres have been perpetrated in #Aleppo, where yet more civilians have been killed. People are trapped. There is no way to escape, and nowhere to seek refuge from the heinous bombardments. Wherever they turn, the borders are closed.

I am glad to see @PatrickStrud’s article quoting 5 British feminist academics who quite rightly remind us that feminism must include rights of trans women. It reminds me of an argument that happened after 1 of my talks in #London when 2 white lesbians bombarded me w/ transphobia
I mention that the 2 transphobic lesbians were white because they followed me to dinner after my talk where a gay #Saudi man, a bisexual Saudi woman and I defended trans rights against those two. In no other country have transphobes followed me to dinner after my talk to argue.
I wanted to eat & to talk w/my friends and the transphobes wanted to lecture. I told them that as far as I was concerned trans women are women and the fight against patriarchy had to include trans rights.And then I said i had just spent 90mins on a lecture & Q&A & I wanted to eat

I remember World Aids Day, December 1st, 2010, because I stenciled red ribbons in the snow around #Dublin. #WAD2018 - Beautiful photos taken by @niallcarsonpa - Niall Carson/PA
2010 was also the year I entered Alternative Miss Ireland @alternativemiss - An annual ribald beauty pageant which raised money for services for people living with #HIV and Dublin Rape Crisis @DublinRCC - I did a tribute to the one and only #FreddieMercury - Uncanny right?

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

Cú Chulainn is believed to be an incarnation of the god #Lugh, who is also his father! His mother is the mortal Deichtine, sister of Conchobar mac Nessa, the King of #Ulster who ruled from #NavanFort near #Armagh. #CúChulainn #Irishmyths #Irishlegends #FolkloreThursday
Born Sétanta, Cú Chulainn gained his name as a child, after killing Culann's fierce guard-dog in self-defence & offered to take its place until a replacement could be reared! Used a standing stone or by driving a sliotar down its throat with his hurley! #FolkloreThursday
Cathbad the druid announced one day that anyone who drew arms would have everlasting fame! So Cú Chulainn only 7 years old, asked for arms! But Cathbad grieved because he had not finished his prophecy-the warrior who took arms that day would have a short life! #FolkloreThursday
