Volevo parlarvi di un articolo uscito ieri su Libé, che considero davvero notevole. Un thread su questo perché lo merita. Image
Sebbene negli anni Libération si sia spostato verso posizioni più liberali, diventando più una testata di sinistra democratica, parliamo pur sempre di un giornale di riferimento della sinistra francese.
Perché è importante fare questa premessa, tautologica e ridondante per molti di voi che lo conoscete bene? In primis, per evidenziare la differenza abissale che intercorre tra la sinistra nostrana, quella più estrema e veterocomunista, ma non solo, e quella francese.

This is my grandmother Stefania.
I've been thinking about her a lot since the full scale war started. Not only did she have a beautiful name and fancy style, but she also survived forced resettlement to Siberia by the Soviets in 1950s. Her story 1/

Stefania was born in 1930 in a village which now lays on the border between Lviv and Ternopil regions. It belonged to the Second Polish Republic back then. Her father Martin was Polish, her mother Teklia was Ukrainian. 2/
Unfortunately, everything I know about her is not first-hand information. She died long before I was able to ask. However, one month ago I went to her house—refugees from Kyiv live there now—and found a few old documents which interweave with her relatives' stories. 3/

Finally, #Zelensky has ordered, or likely more accurately been forced to accept, the surrender of the men who refuse to go on dying for his ego. As I wrote more than once, had it not been for their recent use of human shields to extend the lifespan of the #Azovstl siege, and the
endless begging for the world to save them (much more from Serhyi Volyna & others than #Azov's Denys "Redis" Prokopenko), then they could have come out to the salute & applause of their Russian foes. Their more recent actions were a stain on the honor of their brave stand.
Ironically, but not surprisingly, this more shameful period is when the world media has lionized & even idolized them much more. As I noted recently, this would only serve to increase the PR value of the soon-to-be POWs held by #Russia.

Voy a intentar dar luz y explicar todo lo que está pasando con las votaciones de #Eurovision 2022

Porque hay muchas informaciones sueltas, los medios de comunicación que en vez de informar, desinforman, y aquí no hay quien entienda nada…

Abro hilo ➡️
El tongo en los jurados de #Eurovision ha existido desde el principio de los tiempos…

Con el regreso de Malta en 1991 y Gaetano Abella (izquierda de la foto con gafas y bigote) como Jefe de Delegación se empieza a urdir una red de intercambio de votos bestial…
El jaleo que votos manipulados que ha concluido hoy con el bombazo mediático en España, comienza en 2021 cuando Filipp Kirkórov supuestamente con todo su dinero compra votos en la semifinal 2 de Rotterdam 2021 para la candidatura de Moldavia que dirige: Sugar de Natalia Gordienko

Non so se avete letto qualcosa a riguardo, ma c'è una polemica - principalmente da parte di Romania e Moldavia, che viene rilanciata dai filo-#Putin, sull'#Eurovision. Ve ne parlo in un thread 🧵👇
Come se non bastassero le polemiche dei putinisti Worldwide sulla vittoria dell'#Ucraina all'#Eurovision e i tentativi dei media in #Russia, paese che è stato bandito dalla competizione, di sminuire il risultato da loro ottenuto e il supporto della comunità delle cittadine e…
…cittadini europei, i quali hanno dimostrato chiaramente da che parte è il loro cuore, ora i primi due stanno rilanciando un caso scoppiato principalmente in Moldavia. Ma che cosa è successo? In che cosa consiste la new entry nel repertorio filo-genocida? Cerco di spiegarvelo:

L'Ukraine a fait vraiment un score du public énorme à l'Eurovision...
Je me suis demandé qui ça ferait le plus réagir, et comment : des félicitations ou des insultes ?

War and #Eurovision is nothing new. But empathy is. The first time Bosnia participated, our delegation fled besieged Sarajevo under bombs and snipers to participate. Six people died that night. Unlike Ukraine now, Europe then barely gave us points. Thread:
2/
First our delegation had to flee besieged Sarajevo to get to Dublin. They were forced to run across the airport tarmac, were shot at so hard the conductor had to give up +stay behind. Six people who tried to escape that night were killed, 17 were wounded.
3/
The singer, Fazla, had to try twice. On the second attempt, he lost his shoes in the mud of the destroyed airport runway and kept running, barefoot. But that was only the beginning: after that they had to walk ten kilometers over the 1510 meter high mountain Igman.

Sorry to "bring this up", but there's a sickening difference in Europe's treatment of Ukraine & Bosnia. In 2022, the Ukrainian song wins Eurovision. But in 1993, one year into the Bosnian war & the siege of Sarajevo, the Bosnian song finished 16. So much for "European solidarity"
The song, called 'All the world's pain', read like this:

"I can send you this song
So that you know that I'm alive, [my] love

All the world's pain is in Bosnia tonight

I stay [here] to defy the agony

And I'm not afraid to stand in front of the wall"

Beyond the lyrics, the journey that the Bosnian band had to embark on to reach #Eurovision in itself deserved victory. To get out of sieged Sarajevo, they had to run across open fields, with Serb snipers shooting. Yet Europe didn't think Bosnia deserved a "solidarity victory".

A distanza di qualche ora dalla vittoria dell'#Ucraina all'#Eurovision, ho guardato un po' di siti di stampa russi per curiosità, volevo sentire il grado di rodimento regnate in Moscovia in relazione all'evento. Ho preparato una piccola rassegna da condividere con voi. Un thread:
Partiamo da Фонтанка (Fontanka): i highlights del loro pezzo sono i bookmaker, che avrebbero previsto la vittoria e che prima della semifinale la probabilità di vincita era del 49%. #Russia #Eurovision
Poi, parlano dell’appello dei musicisti ad aiutare l'#Ucraina, #Azovstal, la quale viene indicata come dichiarazione politica e vietata dal regolamento. Proseguono sottolineando che il voto è cambiato drammaticamente con la somma del voto popolare.

Ok, for those who's still crying about 'pity vote' on #Eurovision 🧵

First of all.

We are ready to concede our victory to any country you think deserves it more. You take away our Eurovision victory, but instead, there is no more war in Ukraine.

Deal?
For fuck's sake, simply ban Ukraine from Eurovision altogether for the rest of human history if it means no more of our people will die from rockets, bombs, and guns.

If you think this is justice, it's ok. We are pragmatic people.
The thing is, though, our song was actually good. It was made by some of the Ukrainian top producers long before the war, it's catchy, and it's been trendy on TikTok and YouTube in the whole of Europe (which means the audience loved it), and it's not political in any way.

Os distéis cuenta de que ayer en #Eurovision no se conectó con ciertos países, ¿verdad? Pues hay polémica. Rumanía dice que se alteraron sus resultados y no se les permitió dar los verdaderos. Ojo que si la EBU accede a evaluar irregularidades, podríamos subir a segunda posición.
El lío viene porque hay enfado en Moldavia y Rumanía con que el jurado rumano no diera puntos, se supone, a Moldavia. Su canción aboga por la reunificación entre ambos países, tema sensible. Rumanía dice que sus 12 puntos eran para Moldavia, pero que la EBU se los dio a Ucrania.
Como la polémica se magnifique y la EBU se vea obligada a rectificar, el ránking final puede variar. No afectaría tanto a la victoria de Ucrania como a nuestro puesto, por ejemplo. Se dice que a UK se le dieron puntos que no le correspondían, mientras que a España se le quitaron.

🔴 #Eurovision Je ne me souviens plus où j'ai lu (les lamentations d’un blessé de guerre): chaque fois que quelqu'un me fait l'aumône, j'ai l'impression de recevoir un coup de poignard dans le coeur.

Comment l’aumône se réconcilie-t-elle avec la dignité ?
Sous la forme de la 🔽
miséricorde communautaire, la fière Ukraine a reçu un crachat dans les yeux.
Parce que l’aumône ne suffisait pas, il y a eu fraude.
La charité chrétienne s'est transformé en propagande et que fait l'homme Zelensky, symbole d'honneur et de vérité ?
Au lieu de rejeter l'aumône 🔽
avec indignation, au lieu de se mettre en colère comme il le fait de manière si convaincante vis-à-vis des politiciens étrangers pour réclamer de l'argent et des armes, eh bien, le « grand » Z exulte.
Au lieu de jeter le prix au visage des organisateurs, il fait semblant de 🔽

Il commento di Maria Zakharova, la portavoce del Ministero degli Esteri russo, sulla vittoria dell’Ucraina ad #Eurovision ⤵️
“Concordiamo sul fatto che senza la vittoria dell'Ucraina all'Eurovision, il quadro di ciò che è accaduto a questo Paese non sarebbe completo. Costumi nazionali e strumenti musicali, due Baba Yaga agli archi, breakdance e urla su Azovstal dal palco.
L'Europa si è guadagnata una standing ovation.
Sipario”.

#RussianCulture: #Eurovision message sent by #Kalush to help #Azovstal was heard not only by free people. Narcissistic #Russia'ns responded by dropping bombs with gloating messages on #Mariupol. Russians respond to art with literal bombs, destruction vs creativity #CancelRussia ImageImage
Not just unable to isolate Ukraine, but being isolated themselves, frustrated Russians are happy to dive deeper in mud of their hatred. This is #RussianCulture, but it's not military cult yes, it's bombs but this is rather an example of their criminal culture of small time thugs.

🧵1926+ hrs since #Ukrainian Patriotic War of Independence was started by #Russia full scale attack & 3006? days since #RussiaInvadedUkraine
Yet another day of war in dangerous situation, despite #Eurovision, Russian fascists kept attacking, shelling, bombed #Mariupol, #Azovstal
Russists sent more missiles. Killed more ppl, suffered more losses. Strategically Russists cant win, but they can keep killing us and apparently launched new attacks. There are reports they're sending their rare "Terminator" AFVs designed for urban combats... I have hopes & fears
Russists keep torturing #Mariupol, keep oppressing people in occupied territories. "usual" war stuff but even in such horrible times ppl watched #Eurovision, it really has always been a huge deal for ppl here in Ukraine, a holiday of music &diversity in May.

This is how russians are signing their rockets after the winner of #Eurovision called for saving Azovstal defenders from the stage yesterday.
The bombing this night was more intense than on average.

Imagine, bombing another country because they won on the #ESC2022
So yeah, if you are displeased, that #Eurovision    is "too political," you are probably right.
If you are jealous, feel free to enjoy those missiles flying over your head and the Eurovision victory; every Ukrainian would gladly sacrifice it for the saved Azovstal defenders.
