India is first non-NATO country to speak on #Ukraine in #UNSC tonight. Lots of talk about the need for diplomacy, de-escalation, etc. But no reference to Ukraine's sovereignty or condemnation of Russia.
Brazil expresses "extreme concern" about Ukraine in #UNSC, and calls for diplomacy for peace. Does raise sovereign equality of states and territorial integrity.

Avoids using the word "Russia".
Mexico (3rd non-NATO speaker on Ukraine in UNSC) does call out Russia -- a little more gingerly than NATO members but by name -- and talks about Ukrainian sovereignty. Notably firmer than India and Brazil, although also pivoting to diplomacy and dialogue.

Rekambo chimps in #Gabon’s forests are applying insects to each other’s wounds! 🐵🪰

Whether it's merely a gesture of goodwill or a medication practice, we don't know for sure yet.

Thread. 👇 Image
Back in 2019, @alessandra_masc, a volunteer at the Loango Chimpanzee Project in #Gabon, recorded a female chimpanzee named Suzee and her son, Sia.

In the video, Suzee plucked an #insect from the underside of a leaf, squeezed it b/w her lips, & applied it to Sia's gash.
Such behaviour had never been observed or documented before!

In the year following the incident, researchers filmed all chimps with injuries. They gradually built up a record of 22 events, most of which involved individuals applying insects to their respective wounds.

Thread: How #Qatar rigged the #AbrahamAccords to fail
1. In a previous thread, I raised questions about the stalemate & possible deterioration in #Morocco-#Israel-US relations after what seemed to be a promising start.
2. I posited that a group of greedy, corrupt, and incompetent executors from #Israel & the US and their #Moroccan cronies are trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In particular, I pointed to the dubious role of Jared Kushner's group & their counterparts.
3. But there's much more to the story than meets the eye. #AbrahamAccords was a great idea, but when left in the hands of crooks & unscrupulous pawns of foreign regimes, it was designed to fail and ended up being nothing more than a pricey scam attracting chiefly con artists.

1/ In one corner of the #COP26 forest, we launched a joint statement committing signatories to end international public #fossilfuelfinance by the Dec 2022 and to prioritise $ for the #cleanenergytransition.…
2/ This should shift $24bn that has been going into international public support and subsidy for fossil fuels into clean energy. Critically, this will leverage and redirect many $billions more in private finance, delivering clean power to markets around the world...
3/ It's an #inclusive agenda. It’s not just rich nations, but also emerging economies - signalling they want cheap clean power, and to create jobs & investment and avoid #strandedassets. #Gabon #Zambia #Gambia #SouthSudan #Ethiopia #Fiji #MarshallIslands #SriLanka #ElSalvador...

I appreciate @USAfricaCommand General Townsend's effort, but this is a very tired beltway argument about Africa's importance. (1/n)…
There's more to say about Africa's influence in global affairs. From its three non-permanent seats on the security council to leadership positions at the @WHO and @wto. (2/n)
African countries will play a critical role in the fight against climate change. #DRC president Tshisekedi, #Gabon president Bongo, #Kenya president Kenyatta, #Nigeria president Buhari, & #SouthAfrica president Ramaphosa will attend today's summit. (3/n)…

The final day of the anniversary of Black History. February is just the anniversary. Black History (World History) is 365 days/year. Many are historically illiterate - willingly or unwillingly. I’m grateful for my informal education in our history - at home as a child,
on my own study as a young adult and my formal historical education @ my #hbcu #scsu Department of Political Science & History. I do this. #blackhistory365 #blackhistory #africandiaspora #truth #amlicarcabral #guineabissau #heritage #balanta #akele #gabon🇬🇦

I’ll start with Morocco I’ll ended in western sahara.

Enjoy Image
Day 1.

Morocco .

This 18th-Century Home renovated in the historical center of Essaouira it is an incredible example of traditional Moroccan architecture .

A traditional house renovated and decorated with a contemporary touch.

Between tradition and modernity. ImageImageImageImage
Designed by the French painter Jacques Majorelle the garden was created over the course of forty years, and consists of a labyrinth of crisscrossing alleyways on different levels and boldly-coloured buildings that blend both Art Deco and Moorish influences.

An hidden beauty ImageImageImageImage

#PequeñosGrandesHeroes, Capítulo 3️⃣

En esta edición volvemos a cambiar de continente. Estamos en #Africa 🌍 para hablar de un seleccionado que hizo historia en el 2006, #Angola 🇦🇴. Este es un relato triunfal en medio de tantas desgracias. Image
Angola es una nación relativamente joven, ya que se independizó de #Portugal 🇵🇹 en 1975. Si bien es un país rico en yacimientos minerales y petrolíferos, no pudieron disfrutar de los beneficios de esto ya que la guerra civil los atrapó y los hundió en la miseria. Image
La guerra acabaría recién en el 2002, aunque sus secuelas quedarán por siempre en todos aquellos que la han vivido, sea por combatir como por haber perdido a algún ser querido. De hecho, los jugadores de esta historia no quedarían exentos de este dolor... Image

#Ethiopia's "detention/abduction" of #Lebanon-#Gabon businessman Hassan Jaber is at an impasse.
Circumstances are being described as "eerily similar" 2 Morocco's arrest & extradition to US of Leb millionaire Kassim Tajeddine,a recently-sentenced #Hezbollah financial facilitator Image
Almost a week ago, while transiting from Gabon, Ethiopian authorities stopped Mr Jaber from boarding his flight. He has since disappeared with no word on his whereabouts.
Queries from Leb & Gabonese officials went unanswered. Ethiopia has until Monday before Lebanon "escalates"
The detention's MO while transiting & held incommunicado is very similar to that of Leb businessman Hussein Yassine in #Uganda, only a couple of months ago.
Suspected of being a #Hezbollah recruiter, he was nabbed at Entebe Airport in a joint operation with #Israel's Mossad. Image
