#LiberezSalah

J'étais présente hier à une conférence de presse de soutien à la société civile palestinienne #StandWithThe6 .

Je suis ajd à Jérusalem avec la famille de #SalahHamouri, avocat et défenseur des droits humains injustement détenu.
1/7 Image
#SalahHamouri est l’un des symboles de la répression contre les membres de la société civile palestinienne et du système d'#apartheid : 1. Parce qu'il est menacé d'être expulsé de son pays natal, son droit de résidence à Jérusalem lui ayant été retiré en octobre 2021.
2/7
2. Parce qu'il est en détention administrative depuis mars, sans savoir pourquoi. Aucune preuve, aucun élément matériel n'a été porté à sa connaissance, malgré les demandes de ses avocats. Sa détention est constamment renouvelée. Prochaine audience prévue le 4 décembre.

Here why major currencies have been plummeting for ONE YEAR NOW.

A quick thread 🧵

🚨 After Covid, #Biden came to office in January 2021.

His RECKLESS green policies and FECKLESS spending made him borrow $7 trillion for 2021, which is UNPRECEDENTED in US history.

Note that there was NO #Ukraine in 2021.

🚨 As a consequence, #inflation started in the US resulting in a much lower confidence for both businesses and consumers.

Here is the data supporting my statement.

JUST IN: 100,000+ businesses in Italy are in danger of closing down due to soaring energy bills, as reported by Carlo Sangalli, head of the Italian business association Confcommercio.
Sangalli said, "Already many companies are reorganizing or reducing services… Between now and the first half of 2023, at least 120,000 small businesses in the service sector are at risk… This is a cautious estimate that does not take into account the largest companies".
Sangalli warned that, due to this situation, there could be a loss of over 370,000 jobs. Energy prices in Italy are much higher than in other countries, which puts a strain on small and medium-sized businesses.

Virtual vacation time!

Please enjoy the beauty of Chateau Chantilly, Chantilly, France.

Attached below is a number of photographs in two versions, one color, and the 2nd tweaked B&W “infrared” effect.

I took these when there in 2019, thanks to @Geurtie’s suggestion.

Enjoy!
In the distance is the Chantilly Horse Museum.

Chantilly is about one hour north of Paris via train. We caught the D train at the huge Gare du Nord — it took a bit to find our way, but we did.

From the train station we caught a taxi to the chateau.

chateaudechantilly.fr/en/great-stabl…
Chateau Chantilly is immense and is surrounded by miles of pools, ponds, garden pathways and horse trails and the interior is filled with period furnishings, a huge collection of 15th and 16th century art works, second only to the Louvre.

I though stealing cupper from the wires could happen only in #Iraq, #Syria and #Lebanon. Now it is happening in the heart of Europe.

🇷🇺 "La #Russie est une puissance déclinante avec des armes nucléaires."

Depuis le début de la guerre en Ukraine, Phillips P. O'Brien (@TheAtlantic) s'est imposé comme l'un des experts militaires les plus pertinents. Interview.

"Si la #Russie n'envoie pas plus de troupes en #Ukraine, ils peuvent réellement connaître un effondrement. [...] L'armée russe est dans une position très périlleuse.

Je serais en tout cas très surpris si, d'ici à Noël, les Ukrainiens ne faisaient pas une autre avancée majeure."
🇷🇺 "Un char aujourd'hui a encore de la valeur, mais comme système de guerre secondaire.

La #Russie a perdu à coup sûr bien plus de 1000 chars. Elle a perdu plus de tanks qu'en ont la #France, le Royaume-Uni, l'Allemagne ou la Belgique réunis. Ces pertes sont énormes."

Thread: 20 September 2022: Day 209 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
#Russia "officially" preparing to "annex" the Donbas in eastern #Ukraine.

Should be noted, the Russians had such plans in Kherson and Kharkiv, which were derailed by the Ukrainian guerrillas before the Army liberated Kharkiv.
Imprisoned #Russian oppositionist Alexey Navalny comments on that video of Yevgeny Prigozhin recruiting prisoners for the war on #Ukraine. Sees it as a clear sign of the disintegration of the Army and notes such recruits can only make it worse.

🇫🇷 Certains partis politiques français sont-ils un risque pour notre souveraineté industrielle et plus particulièrement pour notre industrie de défense (#BITD) ?

THREAD 👇
🇷🇺 Suite aux révélations de CNN (@kylieatwood) sur le versement de 300M€ de la part de la Russie envers des partis politiques européens afin d'accroître son influence et de peser sur les scrutins, ce pose la question du retour sur "investissement". edition.cnn.com/2022/09/13/pol…
La #Russie mène ces campagnes de financement dans le but d'accroître son influence sur des individus et partis et s'assurer que ceux-ci obtiennent de bons résultats aux élections. Certes. Mais pour le reste, et notamment l'espionnage industriel.

Many interesting stories late on Monday's thread

⚡️#Russia's soldiers sexually assaulted a 4 year old child.
⚡️🇷🇺embassy in Canada firebombed
⚡️Big (suspicious) fire in 🇷🇺 city
⚡️Employees forced to "donate" over 40% of their weekly wage to Russia's war

Here's a risky investment for Russians.

How about booking a New Year's Eve party at the #Kerch (Crimea) bridge?
New cruises being launched from next week.

Well, guess they like fireworks on 31 December. Why not try a #HIMARS light show experience?

Most of Europe has a serious fossil-fuel addiction problem.
#France is heavy on nuclear.
#Spain + #Portugal—lots of oil.
Coal in the east.
But check out #Denmark (the only place where renewables predominate) and the other Scandinavian countries (hydro).
Similar map for provinces of #Canada, where I live. The West and #Quebec have a lot of water...and thus hydroelectricity.

Not trying to make an invidious comparison here. Canada of course *produces* massive amounts of fossil fuels.

Thread: 19 September 2022: Day 208 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: "#Russia has highly likely lost at least four combat jets in #Ukraine within the last 10 days", a total of 55 since the invasion began. A "realistic possibility" this is because Moscow has stepped up airstrikes, and still lacks air dominance. Image
The "refusenik" problem within the #Russian Army is clearly at an operationally significant level.

By 1920, the network of interurbans in the US was so dense that a determined commuter could hop interlinked streetcars from Waterville, Maine, to Sheboygan, Wisconsin—a journey of 1,000 miles—exclusively by electric trolley.
🧵🚋
The tracks, and often the wires, extended deep into forest and farmland, making the railroads de facto intercity highways; after nightfall in the countryside, farmers would signal drivers to stop by burning a rag next to the track.
Streetcars and interurbans became the dominant mode of urban transportation in North America, carrying 11 billion passengers a year by the end of the First World War.

In #Europe, scores of places are lowering speed limits to 30 km/h. Almost 200 cities in #France have implemented the measure; traffic deaths in some have decreased by as much as 70 percent.
Meanwhile, Conservative Party in #Quebec campaigns on raising highway speeds to 120 km/h.
More info on the movement in France:

And I'm aware highway/city speed limits are different.

"We'll always need big diesel trucks in our cities to deliver freight. It's just reality."

Not so fast. The electric "Cargo Tram" has long been a fixture in many cities in #Europe.

🧵🚋
The city of #Karlsruhe uses light-rail vehicles and "tram-trains" to carry consumer goods between city-center hubs, which are then delivered by electric cargo bikes.
TramFret employs old trams to shuttle groceries around in the city of Saint-Etienne, #France.
