On the centenary of #RosaLuxemburg's death – actually, that's "Doktor Rosa Luxemburg" to you because she bloody earned that doctorate in economics – let us remember her life. THREAD 1/of shedloads...
Little Rosa. Here she is at about five years old. If you look carefully at the sole of the boot on the right, you can see that it's 3 inches thick. Her congenital hip dysplasia was a serious disability that affected her throughout her life.
Bat Mitzvah photo, age 12 or so. And my interpretation of her as a schoolgirl. Luxemburg never let her disability stop her from doing anything. She just ignored the restrictions that should have held her back.

#Breaking: The 51 years old men who went and go to protest with the #GiletsJaunes, is an firefighter who got hit with a Flash Ball Saturday in #Bordeaux. The 51 year old men fell into a coma today, after he went into a shock of the brain trauma caused by the flash ball.
If he will die of the trauma that will mean he will be the first #GiletsJaunes protestor who got killed by the police in France. Keep on fighting i hope you will recover.
#Update: A vigil has been taken form outside the Hospital for the Firefighter who was participating in the #GiletJaunes protest in #Bordeaux and landed into a coma today of the brain trauma to the head of an Flash Ball, with candles and some lovely text on it.

A team of journalists from the news channel "@LCI" was targeted by some #GiletJaunes protestors in #Rouen yesterday. I condemn any violence against Journalists. These people get only paid by showing the narrative the news station wants them to record, It is not their fault.
For the people saying it is their choice to report the news. No it is not only the editor of a news station gets to decide what they want to show you. I am sure these journalists on the ground record both sides but the editor shows you one sided news.
Just look at Jim Acosta he went on the ground recorded it put it on Twitter and exposed some real news on the border that it works, with not even passing it through his editor on CNN first.

And here is another video of police brutality going on in #France towards the #GiletJaunes protestors. Here you see multiple cops restraining and hitting a women multiple times while she was at a bus stop, saying "please stop" i beg you please stop.
1/2 Upon doing more research on the web. Because the #GiletJaunes protestors tend to spread some misinformation. I have all the facts. What you see is an elderly men, who was dragged away from his wife when the police pulled him away. Then the police started to hit the
2/2 elderly men and his wife started to go on a screaming rant "Pease don't hit him" I am begging you, please stop please please please. The elderly men was taken into custody but got released earlier today. The wife of the elderly men has filled an police complaint.

Hey, @ArunInParis, you think we could generate any interest if we did a podcast together and argued about the meaning of the #GiletJaunes and whether France needs more cops? Some people seem to make a living doing that, why not us?
Only problem is I really think an actual nuclear bomb would have to go off here to get Americans all that interest in it.
Maybe if @ArunLeParisien and I bickered enough it would have independent amusement value.

Expect an uptick in full spectrum smearing of Corbyn, ranging from Russia's asset to useful idiot, resuming around now.

Notice who will chiefly benefit from this.
In particular, keep an eye out for long detailed Twitter threads 'proving' it.
Also be aware of this in relation to all movements that threaten the status quo, anywhere.

Notice the attempts to portray anyone suggesting that other sources of disinformation are also available as Russian stooges.

Nothing to see here guys.

The #GiletJaunes #YellowVests protests have nothing to do with #Russia.

Except that the first local events were set up on facebook by "Les Patriotes" whose leader Florian Philippot appears on RUSSIA TODAY.

The dude quit Le Pen's National Front because get this: it didn't serve Russia's interest ENOUGH. 🤣

The tragedy in France with the #GiletJaunes protests is that there is still an expectation from the protesters and their supporters (a majority of The French) which still look up to the government for a solution to job insecurity and seem to hold them accountable for it (1/7)
#giletsjaunes on one hand completely fail to realise that Globalisation and Capitalism operate on a global scale and cannot be tackled at a national level let alone by the government. However, the French Government has a dual responsibility in the emergence of the movement (2/7)
On one hand it cultivates its centrality in the economic affairs of the country including on innovation. The Villani report on #AI on which it hyper communicated is best left to the private or academic sector. By doing so it fosters an illusion of its power and omnipotence (3/7)
