Hola les voy hacer un hilo para intentar explicar a grandes rasgos que es lo que ha estado pasando en #Venezuela y el por qué de su crisis, síganme @Poeta70 @ma_osuna7 @danimede94 @vamoluda @jcordoba3 #Historia #hilosdehistoria
La historia de #Venezuela estará ligada su riqueza mineral, aunque parezca paradójico el ser un país lleno de #petróleo #oro y minerales será un factor determinante para la actual crisis económica. #hilosdehistoria
En 1910 se descubre #petróleo en #Venezuela y en menos de una década el país se convierte en uno de los mayores exportadores de este mineral, haciendo que haya una gran bonanza, se pague la deuda externa y se convierta en la nación más boyante de américa latina #hilosdehistoria

El 2019 empezô con proyecto chulo. En enero a Ruanda. Misiôn puntual. Vacunas en tiempo record.
Papeles listos..
Estaba preparada.
Pero... A las 12:05 en punto
Y como va para largo... Abro hilo. #miVidaconlapiernapocha
Ya en el suelo retorciéndome, se me fue la duda: adiôs viaje, proyectos e liusiones: sabîa que la faena era gorda...
No voy a contar los detalles médicos, no es el propôsito de este hilo.
Si que os cuento que la recuperaciôn va a ser larga y tediosa , asî que he decidido compartir mi experiencia en clave de Humor, de Amor y de Fe.

#Unity4J Vigil 9.0:

The great Australian journalist @johnpilger:

"Julian is a touchstone for opposition to so much of what is going on in our world - the rise of fascism, the threat of nuclear war.

He needs popular support - people in the streets."
#Unity4J Vigil 9.0:

Suzie Dawson @Suzi3D

Suzie reads from the statement made by German members of parliament @HeikeHaensel & @SevimDagdelen on 20 Dec 2018.

Their statement (and the transcript of their live speeches) is here:

#Ecuador President @Lenin Moreno says if UK guarantees #Assange won't face death penalty then "the best thing for him would be to surrender to British justice... and after a few months in jail, freedom."

Moreno knows there's a sealed indictment in the USA. He knows Trump officials have said Julian's arrest is a priority and demanded #Ecuador hand #ASSANGE over. He's met with @VP Pence! His FM just met Pompeo! He is a lying traitor!
Moreno says UK officials claim their constitution forbids them extraditing anyone to a country where they could face the death penalty. And yet UK extradites people to the USA all the time! UK and USA repeatedly changes laws to attack @wikileaks!

21m15s - 'officially' go live.

@CiaronOReilly starts describing the scene outside the Ecuadorian Embassy London, where they are guarding Julian Assange, inside.

"It's Saturday night & we're next to Harrods so the co-option of..."

5. #Wikibees #20 🐝


For 6 years, Julian Assange has been experiencing sensory deprivation inside the Embassy.

"No sense of hot or cold, not seeing more than five meters."

Unsurprisingly, he has developed physical health problems.
6. #Wikibees #20 🐝

@CiaronOReilly is bristling at the Guardian's attacks on Julian Assange.

"They present him as elitist & aloof, and he's not."

"My personal experience.. is he has a great self-depreciating sense of humor and he's a compassionate man."

#RogerStone’s problem is that he’s a self-promoter given to misleading people about his access. Ask @POTUS. @JulianAssange has already said that #Stone was falsely portraying himself as having inside information, when the public record shows he knew nothing not already public.
… is this why the @StateDept — still aching from @ChelseaXY having humiliated @HillaryClinton — is leaning on #Ecuador to force #China-style restrictions on @JulianAssange? He’s the ONLY person who could reveal the truth about the #RussiaGate myth, dooming #Mueller’s #WitchHunt.
… or is there something more at play here w/ notorious fabulist #RogerStone? He’s clearly no mastermind, but is he the one person who could — if coerced & blackmailed into lying by #DirtyCop #Mueller — implicate @POTUS @realDonaldTrump in a fictional scheme to “collude?”

OK so here's what really happened to @JulianAssange today: #Ecuador court gave him a crap Internet link & even worse translator, but the judge pretended it was all because Australians can't understand English. #FreeASSANGE…
(ht @LaFleurDelSur for link).
#ASSANGE even "tested out the translator to see how his remarks would be translated. He made several statements in English and then declared that the level of translation was insufficient. The judge then decided to suspend the hearing."
#ASSANGE lawyer Carlos Poveda said: "One of his concerns was that if he made a statement, it could be interpreted as a transgression of his special conditions. What a contradiction!"

We spoke with @CynthiaMcKinney On

How The United States Creates “Sh*thole” Countries…
McKinney told us: "The old political schema no longer works, and these [contributors] are people from all kinds of ideological backgrounds... and yet they were all able to come together and establish as a fact, that #Peace has a broad constituency in the United States.
Given the ongoing debate as to the viability of working with those from opposite sides of the political spectrum, (…) McKinney’s book is especially timely in its encapsulation of cross-ideological collaboration. She explained:

"How can we view the ongoing silence from within the confines of the Ecuadorian embassy as anything other than a political, enforced disappearance in the middle of a so-called free, liberal society?"

#Unity4J #ReconnectJulian #FreeAssange #Auspol…
Although #Assange is isolated by the Ecuadorian government, it is overwhelmingly clear that as per the definition, #Ecuador is "acquiescing" to the desire of the US & UK governments.

To the tune of $500 million.

I welcome Kristinn #Hrafnsson’s (@khrafnsson) appointment as @WikiLeaks’ Editor-in-Chief. The @USAgov’s campaign of dezinfomatsia, lawfare, & extortionate tactics — as well as the @govUK’s flagrant violations of international #HumanRights law — will clearly not impede WL’s work.
#Hrafnsson’s appointment sends a CLEAR SIGNAL to @TheJusticeDept: #WikiLeaks (& its fans) won’t back down, nor will WL’s mission be nullified by @CPSUK continuing to hold #Assange hostage. These terrorist tactics are beyond the scope of acceptable state behavior. #FreeAssange.
… moreover, this dumb & counterproductive campaign against #WikiLeaks — for daring to expose widespread, systemic corruption in the #DNC, inc. flagrant campaign finance violations — sets an anti-press precedent when we should be pressing #China on #FreeSpeech & #PressFreedoms.

#Russian🇷🇺diplomats held secret talks in London last year and plotted to smuggle Julian Assange out of #Ecuador’s London embassy in a diplomatic vehicle and transport him to #Russia.

But WikiLeaks isn’t a cutout for Russian intelligence or anything.🙄…
Fidel Narváez (close Assange confidant) recently was Ecuador’s London consul & served as a point of contact w/#Russia🇷🇺.

Narváez previously tried to help Edward Snowden👉🏼travelled to Moscow & gave Snowden a “safe-conduct“ document.🙄

Four separate sources said the Kremlin was willing to offer support for Assange’s escape plot – including allowing Assange to travel to #Russia🇷🇺and live there.

So NOT shocking.🙄

This pathetic hack attacked #WikiLeaks and #Assange with smears and lies, now he loudly complains that nobody will return his calls. LMFAO. Put someone decent on the beat, @AP. #FreeASSANGE
A-a-a-and now we know why this pathetic @AP hack is so desperate for "content". He has new smears to publish! #FreeASSANGE #Unity4J
AP claim they have "tens of thousands of files". But they are leading with Israel Samir asking the Russian embassy to give @JulianAssange asylum in 2010? It's well known @wikileaks was trying every option at the time. As Kristinn Hrafnsson says, that's “rather uninteresting.”

Anyone familiar w/ propaganda techniques will see right through this article's lies, & figure its true intentions.

We will deconstruct it for you, lie by lie, falsehood by falsehood, by tomorrow (Sunday) - stay tuned! 😉…
Sorry to begin w/ the end of the article, but this is to show how crappy a job @abcnews is doing: they already had to fix a serious 'mistake' where they 'only' made their readers believe Assange is facing charges when he is not.

Way to go @abcnews... but we're not done yet!
Exposing the lies & manipulation in this article is like entering a long sewer: there's poop everywhere you look.

Have I got this wrong?
1. Ecuador wins compensation from Chevron for polluting.
2. Ecuador Supreme Court dismisses Chevron protest.
3. Ecuador govt dismisses Supreme Court judges.
4. Ecuador gets massive loans instead of Chevron compensation.
Chevron deliberately dumped 16 billon gallons of cancer-causing oil waste into #Ecuador rainforest waterways and abandoned 1,000 toxic waste pits.…
Court ruled $19 billion liability, reduced to $12b. But Chevron no longer operates in #Ecuador, who therefore tried (unsuccessfully) to pursue the oil giant in foreign courts. Chevron has now counter sued:…

Australian Government Can Save Julian Assange

(OpEd by famous Australian QC, Julian Burnside,on @JulianAssange crisis)…


#Assange #SafePassage #NoExpulsion #NoExtradition #Unity4J #auspol #ecuador #humanrights
"Julian Assange is an Australian. He is in trouble overseas. He needs the Australian government's help."

"The American have made it clear that they want to get Assange, who has good reason to fear that he will be mistreated the way Chelsea Manning was."

~Julian Burnside~
"#Assange has not seen sunshine or felt rain for 6 years.

His health has deteriorated badly.

His teeth are causing great pain: a dentist can't visit him. He needs root canal surgery,which is not possible except in a fully equipped dental surgery."

#Assange lawyer Carlos Poveda: "We sent 2 letters to the Foreign Ministry of #Ecuador, one about 10 days ago, the other about 5 days ago... They haven't responded to us." #FreeAssange #Unity4J…
Poveda said the letters "indicated precisely the concerns we have over withdrawal of nationality and asylum." So @Lenin Moreno is also planning to withdraw citizenship? He has to if he wants to legally evict #ASSANGE: #Ecuador's constitution protects citizens from extradition.
Poveda said #Assange's lawyers have been "keeping an eye on UK newspapers" and seeking to meet @Lenin Moreno "but at the moment there seems no possibility of doing so."

A group of Democrats asked the US VP Mike Pence , to take advantage of his Latin American tour to improve relations with Ecuador and also to pressure #Quito on its decision to continue giving asylum to the founder of @WikiLeaks, @JulianAssange…
Guess who Pence will be meeting with apart from @Lenin ...…
According to NYT, Chuck Schumer and nine other Democratic senators said in a letter to #Pence that they were extremely concerned over #Ecuador's protection of #Assange at its embassy in London.…

🔎 (1) #GlennSimpson worked with California Strategies and registered as a foreign lobbyist for Sheikh Khalid bin Saqr al-Qasimi of the UAE. While this isn’t new info to all they’re very curious details, this report claims $40,000 with his then company SNS Global #FusionGPS
(2) FARA documents by California Strategies show a payment of $55k to #GlennSimpson’s company. Should be noted CA Strategies is run by former Clinton staff including Chris Lehane (AKA Lewinsky smear)
(3) Here’s where is gets very strange Sheikh Khalid bin Saqr al-Qasimi allegedly hired all of these people to create better relationships with the U.S which obviously means paying #ClintonFoundation $50k while HRC is at the @StateDept 🙄
