With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

#NewDealForNature
Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

(1)45 years ago, Indira Gandhi announced #Emergency on 25th June 1975
My dadaji was the President of Jan Sangh - Shahdara, Delhi at that time and very close to Vajpayee ji.

(2) He had to remain underground for 21 months as a MISA warrant was issued for all senior opposition leaders. We own an entire road in Delhi as we had a big business and have a huge house.
Our entire house was sealed and only one room was later de-sealed after 3-4 days.
(3) 2 Policemen used to stay at our home 24*7 so that they can arrest my grandfather if he comes to meet his family.
The ACP used to come and take my father (him being the eldest child) to police station late night to interrogate him and ask about my grandfather's whereabouts.

45 years since the Emergency: The effects on the socio-political scenario in India

writes Namit Saxena

@namitsaxena2007 #Emergency #Emergency1975

barandbench.com/columns/45-yea…
The socio-economic condition of India was in bad shape between 1972-1975. 2 Wars and the influx of 8 million refugees from Bangladesh had strained the economy. There was a sharp increase in oil prices and prices of commodities.
Few important parallel developments at the same time include the Nav Nirman movement led by Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (@ABVPVoice) in Gujarat, Sampoorna Kranti (total revolution) agitation led by Jayaprakash Narayan (JP), & national strike by the Railway workers union.

Indians, never forget June 25, 1975; a dark day in India’s history on which Indira Gandhi imposed #Emergency which lasted for a period of 21 month

The main target of Indira was not the political parties & their leaders but RSS. #IndiaDeservesToKnow
1/5
Indira believed that it was the RSS that provided all the logistic support to the movement launched by JP in Bihar & Gujarat.

Therefore, even before #Emergency was declared, she was planning to ban it.
2/5
Soon after the #Emergency was declared, large number of RSS leaders and cadres were arrested. The jails of the country were flooded with RSS swayamsevaks.

The number of RSS swayamsevaks detained under MISA was 23,015 including 22938 male and 77 female activists.

On the CCI Decision!

1. We still don't know the basis of jurisdiction to issue an advisory opinion. More on when details unveiled.
2. In terms of the substantive outcome, I disagree on three points:
... 1
A. Constitution has no specific answers, but only establishes a framework for decision making re consequence of emergencies. CCI decision that govt n parliament MUST continue oversteps its mandate. It sd have simply said that postponement is allowed ... 2
And leave it to HPR/CoM to determine appropriate consequences. This referral may not have changed the outcome but at least as a political platform, HPR/CoM would have found it hard not to consult the opposition and may be even make some concessions, ...3

@BandyXLee1 The Coronavirus Teaches Us Not to Let Trump Press the Nuclear Button. Some of the president’s poor decisions on COVID-19 have been reversed. But a presidential decision to start nuclear war cannot be. @TomCollina defenseone.com/ideas/2020/04/… via @defenseone
@BandyXLee1 @TomCollina @DefenseOne There Is No Check on Trump’s Rage Going Nuclear. An angry, entitled man has total control over devastating weapons. And nowhere is his retrograde masculinity more dangerous than in his control of the nuclear button. By Prof. Anne Harrington & @CherylRofer: foreignpolicy.com/2019/05/22/the…

Late #Congress president Rajiv Gandhi and top #RSS leaders, Balasaheb Deoras and Bhaura Deoras, had a secret understanding, which was reflected in certain decisions taken during his tenure as PM in the late 1980s.

According to RSS ideologue K.N. Govindacharya
Rajiv had inherited the "soft Hindutva legacy" of Indira Gandhi's second innings as PM.

Rajiv had met Bhaurau Deoras, at least half a dozen times at different locations
The last meeting between the two leaders had taken place at 10,Janpath in Dec1990 before he was assassinated
Rajiv’s election campaign of 1984 was aggressive & focused on making #Sikhs seeking a separate homeland a key issue. The hidden agenda was to somehow exploit #insecurity within the #Hindu community and project the Rajiv-led Congress as their sole saviour.

Consequences of Indira Gandhi amending the #Preamble to add 'Secular' are being fully felt 45 years later. Rabid haters and lawless minority communalists -- from #CAA protesters to supporters of #TablighiJamaat to bigot @khan_zafarul -- cite that spurious amendment in defence. 1n
The sanctity of #Constitution of #India was perverted by Indira Gandhi during #Emergency . That perversion has struck roots and flourished in the dark depths of the minds of those who are intolerant of Hindus and perceive 'secularism' to mean protection for anti-Hindu bigotry. 2n
The Indian nation never accepted theocracy. #India has been and remains secular not despite but because of its Hindus. We are a civilisation, not a cult wedded to any fake 'ism'. That is why Constituent Assembly did not mention 'Secular' or 'Socialist' in Preamble. 3n

Thread: Comparing the emergency response for vulnerable folks from British Columbia vs Ontario.

I want you to read this thread, then try to tell me that Ford is doing a "good job" for vulnerable Ontarians.

First, let's compare the provincial crisis response to homeless...
In Ontario, they still have the Safe Streets Act which police enforce. This act, if continued to be enforced, will cost lives of homeless people due to them needing to go to more dangerous lengths to not be seen by the police. theconversation.com/ontarios-safe-…
In Ontaro, social programs have been cut, the foodbank is limited to 1 trip per month, ppl are still expected to live on the streets. They opened a respite centre in Ottawa to shower, not to stay at. cbc.ca/news/canada/ot…

Interesting exposé. #COVID19 has triggered the largest number of derogations from human rights treaties #RCHR etc. But I am very sceptical about the need for or justification of derogations on this occasion. ⤵️
The exceptional circumstances of #COVID19 do not require action outside the #ECHR or the #EuropeanSocialCharter, but to manoeuvre within and apply the provisions of those instruments designed for exceptional situations, like #PublicHealth. Someone should make this point. ⤵️
The provisions that might be legitimately derogated from provide precisely for the margin that is necessary on this occasion on #PublicHealth grounds, which makes it superfluous to derogate. #ECHR examples follow:

The government declared #COVID-19 as a “notified disaster” under the #Disaster Management Act, 2005. As per Section 10 of the Act, the Health Ministry has directed National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority to regulate the price and availability of #sanitizers and #masks. (1/n)
The prevention of fake news over social media is also being controlled by the #government.
It is for the first time that under Section 6(2)(i) of the Act, a national lockdown was declared by the National Disaster Management Authority and implemented in the States u/s 38. (2/n)
This affects the freedom of movement and assembly of citizens with the exception of provision of essential goods, but is required for the prevention of the spread of #COVID19. Hence, the police are permitted to book violators of the lockdown under the provisions of the IPC. (3/n)

This will be an ongoing thread regarding life here in #SaudiArabia, during the #CoronaVirus (#CoVid19) #outbreak.

The #Saudi Government was initially quite strongly criticized for it's preventative measures, yet now many criticizing nations have declared states of #emergency.
While basic things like #facemasks have been hoarded elsewhere & sold for up to ten times their market price, here in #Saudi national factories are producing #FaceMaskForSale in the domestic market.

Thank you @MCgovSA 💚🌴

#CoVid19 #CoronaVirus #كورونا
Here's another #CoVid19 essential.
While hoarders and heartless advantage-takers have emptied store shelves of #HandSanitizer, elsewhere…
#Saudi @MCgovSA makes sure factories produce enough to cover domestic demand.

An empty arena accessible in virtual reality style & accessible to a merchandise stand with stock currently available. Whhhhaa does that even mean? Any world arena that can be cloud stored for mobility-challenged folks planning but easy access in #VirtualReality no line for goods
Who else, but for those who could never access an arena, be thrilled by the #VirtualReality presentation of such with options to mix and match merchandise / @WWEShop on a virtual merch stand. Save and change up favorite arrangements, lights, sound envmt for simulated best merch.
@WWEShop I'm not talking about making @WWEShop a part of @2K @WWEgames although for some reason, the company has never tried. I'm talking a #WebAR (createwebxr.com) style disability friendly standard VR map (think Google Maps for arenas) for merchandise with languages & styles...
