#China kauft sich mal wieder Freunde.

Diesmal hat die Regierung von #Honduras mehrere Milliarden dafür bekommen, #Taiwan nicht mehr als eigenständige Nation zu sehen.

Das ist insgesamt gesehen kein wesentlicher Vorgang, es doch sowieso nur 14 von rund 200 Staaten gewesen,
die #Taiwan anerkannt haben. Und keiner der 14 Staaten besitzt Relevanz im geopolitischen Rahmen. Wer das nicht glaubt, sollte die Liste googlen und dann feststellen, dass der Vatikanstaat(!) als Bedeutsamst in der Liste heraus sticht...

Trotzdem hat Honduras' Ausstieg für
China innenpolitisch einen großen Wert, kann man doch erneut der Bevölkerung im Rahmen der "One China" Politik vor machen, dass man die "Elitären Machthaber der chineischen Insel", die "die armen Festland Chinesen daran hindern nach Hause zu kommen" nun Schritt für Schritt

OK - now at #Honduras former president JOH's Curcio hearing. US filing for this says Rosenthals bribed JOH. Inner City Press will live tweet, thread below
The US Attorney's Office reached out in October 2022 about unsealing the docket of CW-1.
Did the unsealing ever happen? If so, why still no name?
Now a whispered sidebar discussion, obscured by loud white noise.
JOH is speaking in Spanish, uses word "cross-examinar." Calls the two cooperating witnesses "estas personas."

Cuando en 1519 el seminarista Jerónimo de Aguilar recibió una carta de Hernán Cortés de inmediato marcho hacia el sur, hacia Chetumal en busca de su compañero, el náufrago de Palos de la Frontera, Gonzalo Guerrero. Sabes qué le respondió cuando lo invitó a unirse con Cortés? HILO
“Aguilar, soy casado, tengo 3 hijos, y tienenme por cacique y capitán cuando hay guerras; ídos vos con Dios, que yo tengo labrada la cara y horadadas las orejas. ¿Qué dirán mí desde que me vean esos españoles ir desta manera?E ya veis mis 3 hijos cuán bonicos son…
“Por vida vuestra que me deis desas cuentas verdes que traéis para ellos, y diré que mis hermanos me las envían de mi tierra”.
Así fue como Guerrero se quedó con los mayas del actual Quintana Roo, preparándose para la invasión que vendría.

1/25.📜It’s day twelve of #COP27 and here is your daily #LossAndDamage focused thread. The intense negotiations on “funding arrangements" continue today after the release of a new text which contained a set of three options for a decision on a fund to address #LossAndDamage. 🧵
2/25. As summarised by @YebSano of @GreenpeaceSEA during @CANInt press conference these options equate to: “Option 1, we have a fund here. Option 2, we have a fund next year, Option 3, we don't have a fund, let's talk some more.”
3/25. However, it is very important to note — as we did earlier in an extensive thread— that “option number 1” is not in line with the G77 and China’s current proposal for an operating entity (be it a fund or facility) under the financial mechanism of the @UNFCCC.

1/29. It’s day eleven of #COP27 and it was a busy day in #SharmElSheikh with press conferences by @CANIntl and the G77 and China, the #PeoplesPlenary, a @COP27P event on Cultural Heritage, an HoD meeting on the cover decision and #LossAndDamage side events throughout the day. 🧵
2/29.#LossAndDamage side events kicked of this morning with an event on Non-Economic #LossAndDamage (#NELD): “Losing the Irreplaceable: #LossAndDamage, #Culture & Heritage” at the #ResilienceHub.
3/29. During the event, @nusrat_naushin highlighted that in areas where intense saltwater intrusion is happening Non-Economic #LossAndDamage is taking place: “#Women and small children are bearing the brunt. People are losing their hair, women are having gynaecological issues.”

Tonight at #cop27 I attended an event about global early warning systems for extreme weather forecasting.

After the event I spoke to several senior meteorologists about the unusual atmospheric phenomena over North and Central America during October 2022.
They all (five sources) confirmed the thesis in this data related thread that geo-engineering / weather modification by the US was indeed the cause of this unusual weather event. Very candidly.
And further they suggested that a text on this ought to be proposed to be added to the cover agreement for #cop27

One which mandated a work program to regulate how the “open secret” of large scale weather modification technology ought to be used & improve transparency.

El martes se cerraron las negociaciones entre abogados de la Administración Biden y la familia demandante en el caso de cancelación del #TPS en #USA sin acuerdo alcanzando. El riesgo del fin del beneficio migratorio y de que haya deportaciones es mayor 🧵
Miles de familias y miembros de la Alianza Nacional TPS esperaban que estas negociaciones resultara una opción favorable a la situación migratoria de los afectados. Sin ningún acuerdo y sin nueva extensión, el #TPS tiene los días contados
Si la Administración Biden no concede una nueva extensión antes del 30 de noviembre próximo y mantiene su postura en la demanda que ha frenado temporalmente la cancelación, todo apuntaría a que no hay interés de mantener el #TPS

Construction workers at the site of the new @usembassyhn in Tegucigalpa are out early this morning for a second day of work stoppage protesting labor abuses by @StateDept contractor @BLHarbert. I’ll post here as I get updates.
#Honduras #Solidarity
@usembassyhn @StateDept @BLHarbert Direct action (+lots of solidarity) on the way to getting the goods this AM for workers building the oversized fortress that will be the new @usembassyhn in Honduras. Workers showed up @ 5am; soon after a (US) manager from @BLHarbert came out to meet them & hear their demands... ImageImageImageImage
@usembassyhn @StateDept @BLHarbert The workers at the new US Embassy in Honduras (apparently all 900 of them) are refusing to start up work again until @BLHarbert signs their list of demands. There is some sort of delay in getting it translated. Took me five minutes to do this very rough translation. ImageTegucigalpa July 7, 2022  T...

A brief thread about migration trends in #Mexico, based on Mexican government data updated through April, and through May for asylum seekers.

5 months into 2022, Mexico has already received its 3rd-highest annual total of asylum requests. At this pace 2022 will be 2d after 2021.
New asylum applications in #Mexico have declined for two consecutive months, though.

This is from the latest summary by Mexico's refugee agency @comar_sg, posted today:…
Far fewer people applying for asylum in #Mexico this year are from #Haiti, compared to last year. #Honduras is back in the number-1 position, followed by #Cuba.

OK -#Honduras Tigre Bonilla is about to be presented in @SDNYLIVE Magistrates Court. Inner City Press is only media here (at least for now, while alerting others) and will live tweet, thread below
Already in Magistrates Court are the two prosecutors from yesterday's JOH arraignment, and agents eith a bag of clothes and possessions, presumably Bonilla's. Still waiting.
The court interpreter is setting up. A defense lawyer who Inner City Press recognizes from another recent trial (for horse drugging) peeks in; unclear if he or another lawyer will represent Bonilla.
