At the end of February thousands of people stuck in #Turkey gathered at #Greece's land and sea border with the hope of safe passage...…

...what they found was an extreme level of violence from police and military (teargas, water cannons and gunfire), an illegal suspension of asylum rights, daily pushbacks, and inhumane treatment such as stripping, beating and detention without food and water.

BVMN have co-authored a comprehensive report alongside several organisations @mobileinfoteam @teammareliberum @NoNameKitchen1 and @VanInfo, covering systematised rights abuses targeting people-on-the-move, both at maritime and terrestrial crossing points into Greece.

1/11 A thread on the #euro and why I think its existence is about to be tested.
2/11 #Europe is about to face a simultaneous endogenous & exogenous economic shock. The #COVID19 is creating multi-level disruptions, and the #EU will need to act swiftly to address them. However, history has shown that #EU's decision-making process is very rigid. #euro
3/11 Yesterday, the European Commission pledged 25bn to tackle the economic crisis caused by the #coronavirus outbreak. This amount is equal to ~0.15% of #EU's GDP. Hence, bolder moves will be needed to address the upcoming economic disruption. #euro…

Ich habe ein Gutachten in Auftrag gegeben das darlegt, dass die Bundesregierung die Aufnahme von einigen geflüchteten Kindern durch Bundesländer nicht ablehnen darf. Die Regierung lehnt vorhandene Angebote also rechtswidrig ab. #wirhabenplatz…
Das heißt nicht, dass die Bundesländer oder Kommunen hier jetzt in der Verantwortung sind. Dazu fehlen ihnen die Kapazitäten und es nicht ihre Aufgabe. Bundesregierung und andere EU-Staaten müssen mit der EU-Kommission jetzt schnell handeln! #lesvos #greece
Das Gutachten ist schon lange geplant und jetzt fertig geworden.

Faden zu #COVID19

Illner zu Corona war nicht schlecht, hab euch ein paar Clips zusammengestellt, wird weiter unten noch durch Artikel ergänzt.

"CDC sagt das es schlimm werden wird."

Infektionsketten unterbrechen und den Ausbruch verlangsamen, wird derzeit weltweit gemacht. Mit mehr oder minderem Erfolg. Kapazitäten sind fürs drauf treten eben auch nicht unbegrenzt.
Mundschutz ist eher psychologisch, bzw. wenn man erkrankt ist um keine Viren zu verbreiten. An einer anderen Stelle in der Sendung wird auch gesagt das einfach zu Hause bleiben noch die beste Maßnahme ist.

(Thread) Public Announcement on Refugees and Idlib #Syria:

Between 2012-16, majority of indigenous inhabitants of Idlib & Aleppo fled Wahhabi Contra and Invasion, inside Syria, or towards Turkey/Europe. That is where the majority of 4mill international refugees came from. 1/
The towns and villages of Idlib were repopulated with the 200k Wahhabi Contras and their families that they brought with them from as far as Uyghur (30k), to UK; or families they built with captured sex-slaves; (total over 500k colonizers). 2/
Now we know that the population of the province of Idlib in 2011 was 1.5mill, most of them fled, meaning less than 100k indigenous inhabitants remained; held hostage by a horde of 500k Wahhabi Contras. 3/

Γλείφει απροκάλυπτα τον κώλο του ερντογαν η γερμανία,
κάνει συστάσεις στη Συρία, κυρίαρχο κράτος,
να ..μην προστατεύει τα υπό εισβολή εδάφη της,
αλλά να τα ..παραδώσει στους ...τουρκους!

Έλληνα σκέψου εσένα πως σε παραδίδει στον ερντογαν κάθε μέρα!

Μα που βρίσκει ο ερντογάν τόση ισχύ? ακούω να σκέφτεσαι..

Όλα τα τζαμιά στη γερμανία είναι υπο τον έλεγχο της τουρκικής κρατικής diyanet.

Απάνθρωπα εγκληματα σαν αυτό εδώ, όχι απλά δεν τα μαθαίνεις ποτέ εσύ, αλλά η γερμανία κρύβει όνομα και κίνητρο του δράστη απο τους πολίτες της:

A Putin-Erdogan meeting is expected once the military operation in #Idlib reaches its objectives and imposes the Astana agreement by force where Turkey failed to do so in more than a year over HTS, ak al-Nusra (former ISIS in Syria, former al-Qaeda in Syria) et al.
The Syrian Army is preparing a large offensive and Russia is very angry.

Dangerous combination in the next 24 hours.
33 Turkish officers killed and 36 wounded by a Russian raid on a Turkish convoy in rural #Idlib (#Syria) last night.

#Russia is replying to the Turkish supply of MANPADs to Jihadists, a very serious matter jeopardizing Russian pilots safety and a change of the Rule of Engagement

Dog gangraped to death in migrant Invader camp

'Raped dog' found in Greek camp.

An old story that was removed before anyone could sees it. I'm posting it again today due to the new problems at the Greek camps. Exploding overflow.…
I found the story quite upsetting at the time. And was disappointed when it was tampered with by you-know-who.

Speaker of the House of Representatives what really happened in Moscow:
We were invited by the Russian president and as a great country and according to are traditions we can not refuse to not hear what they have to say , but we didn’t agree on anything before hand .
As We arrived the #Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said to me you have the key to this issue,I replied we but every time l leave i keep that key with the Libyan people.
First me and Hafter refused to meet al-Sarraj because his treachery and the Turkish presences Disgust us
As we started we found everything was already discussed and negotiated beforehand, and we had not hand in any of the terms the others already signed.
Me and #Hafter refused and our number one term was the liberation of the full Libyan soil for terrorists and militias.

The latest “Brief” papers published by the #Emirates_Policy_Center analyze key legal, regional and international consequences of the maritime agreement signed recently by #Turkey and the Government of National Accord in #Libya.

The Turkish side was able to impose its legal will over the Government of National Accord and capture Greek maritime areas in the Mediterranean by exploiting divisions and chaos in #Libya and backed by this agreement.
By applying the rules of the international law on the terms of the Turkish-Libyan memorandum of understanding, it is evident that these terms are in violation of the rules of international law and the international Law of the Sea. #Turkey #Libya

The list of truly fundamental needs for human life is a short one.

Food is on that list.

1. #Bulgaria/n #economy 101! #Thread

#Borissov's government is proud that in 2018, #GDP growth was 3.2%, but how impressive is this and should you be impressed too?
2. #Bulgaria has the lowest #GDP/capita in the #EU, but it is not that small. Our population is ca 7.1 million. What does that mean? Lack of efficiency, but not only.

Graph credit: WorldBank
3. #Bulgaria has the lowest median earnings in the #EU. In 2018, the net salary was 457 EUR. Contrast with #Romania (565 EUR), #Poland (784 EUR), and #Greece (917 EUR).

Worldwide more than 140,000 people died from #measles in 2018: new WHO and @CDCgov estimates.

Most deaths occurred among children under 5 years of age.

Babies and very young children are at greatest risk from #measles infections, with potential complications including pneumonia and encephalitis (a swelling of the brain), as well as lifelong disability - permanent brain damage, blindness or hearing loss
Recently published evidence shows that contracting the #measles virus can have further long-term health impacts, with the virus damaging the immune system’s memory for months or even years following infection

The Muslim Brotherhood government in Libya & Erdogan agreed to split the E. Mediterranean between them, ignoring Crete that would ruin plans to steal Greek gas.

The Greek Foreign Ministry basically said “Take a closer look at the map.There's a Greek island there, called Crete."
Greek FM Dendias said the agreement is ”beyond all reason” and “shows a complete lack of geographic knowledge.”

The Greek FM also said the agreement ”obviously ignores something that everyone can see; that between these two countries (Libya and Turkey) lies Crete.”
1) Erdogan claimed to be using “international law” to support his irrendentist ambitions, but as usual, doesn’t specify any international law. So let’s talk about international law. The legal position of Greece and Cyprus is with the United Nations Law of the Sea December 10 1982

<thread> Four years ago, I went to #Greece to work on a short documentary on the #refugee crisis. I was prepared for many things physically, but I wasn’t prepared to gain a family. Today I want to tell you their story, and why countries should open their doors to refugees 1/x
I first met 6 yr old Menwar when I joined filmmaker & friend Ida Theresa Myklebost to work on her film “Unwelcome” & we found ourselves in a makeshift refugee camp near the Greece-Macedonia border. My laptop was locked; he banged on some keys, unlocked it & stole my heart 2/x
When I took this photo of Menwar, he & his family had been in Greece for over a year after their house in #Aleppo was destroyed in the war and they made the treacherous journey by sea to #Europe. By that time, in mid-2016, Europe was closing its doors. They were in limbo. 3/x

1/ Classic start to a Northern train journey: 24 min delay due to "awaiting a member of staff" & the train to MCR airport is rammed incl. a group of rowdy lads singing Vera Lynn "We'll meet again" & drinking cans of Bud Light at 8:30am 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️ #EUsupergirlTour ✈🇬🇧
2/ Then the "Direct" MCR airport service randomly decides it isn't going to the airport after all (don't they realise people have flights to catch?!)🤦🏼‍♀️✈
Funny: I have to plan 1hr contingency time for train Fckups when I travel to Northern airports.
I don't have to in London🤔
