#ICYMI, here's a #threatintel related🧵👇 by me on @USTreasury advisory on DPRK IT workers' attempts to obtain employment while posing as non-North Korean nationals:… (1/?)
DPRK IT workers "engage in a wide range of IT dev work, such as: mobile & web-based apps, virtual currency exchange platforms & digital coins. Some
designed virtual currency exchanges or created analytic tools/apps for virtual currency traders & marketed their products." (2/?)
This reminds me, for example, of Marine Chain Token: (…;…), #AppleJeus (…) and, more recently, #TraderTraitor (…). #HIDDENCOBRA/#APT38 loves loves loves their crypto (3/?)

While continuing to demand that the Cuban regime immediately release all political prisoners, today's announcement will increase direct support for greater freedom & expanded economic opportunities for the Cuban people.
First, @POTUS will reinstate the Cuban Family Reunification Parole & continue to increase capacity for consular services. Second, #BidenHarris Administration will strengthen family ties & facilitate connections for the American & Cuban people by expanding authorized travel.

"Il corteo funebre di #ShireenAbuAkleh, giornalista di @AlJazeera , uccisa mercoledì, è stato segnato da scontri con le forze di polizia israeliane a Gerusalemme, che hanno usato granate assordanti sulla folla a #SheikhJarrah. ⬇2
Centinaia di persone si sono radunate fuori dall'ospedale dove è iniziata la processione, molte delle quali sventolano bandiere palestinesi e intonavano quelle che la polizia ha definito “cori di incitamento nazionalistico”. ⬇3

non è più rosso del sangue di un'anonima studentessa delle superiori che un mese fa stava tornando a casa in un taxi pieno di donne in questa stessa #Jenin quando è stata uccisa dagli spari dei soldati israeliani. Così è stata uccisa #HananKhadour. ⬇3

Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

"HM's government will play a leading role in defending democracy and freedom across the world".
HM's government will repeal the Human Rights Act.
#Queenspeech #HumanRights #HumanRightsAct

The Govt have gone to the @coe and rightly pleaded with them to expel Russia, for gross human rights violations in Ukraine.
Yet the Govt has now also formally announced its plans to substitute the HRA with a UK Bill of Rights (and undermine the operation of the ECHR in the UK).
@coe 3. Contradictions and sheer hypocrisy from the Govt, Baroness @SarahLudford: "HMG will ensure the Constitution is defended". Defended against whom? The Judiciary, deploying human rights, to protect it?

Brief statement on #Russia's accusations against Ukraine, for a Western journalist:
1. Russian state media, politicians and ministries have, over the years, published an avalanche of outlandish accusations about Kyiv's alleged suppression of #Russian speakers throughout #Ukraine.
2. The Kremlin's accusations concern especially alleged Ukrainian abuses of the Russian-speaking people living in the #Donbas, and are made on a daily basis, in order to present #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine as a supposedly #humanitarianintervention covered by international law.
3. However, these #Russian stories and interpretations are not reflected in the relevant reports by independent #humanrights organizations, respective decisions by international courts, and the reports of the @OSCE_SMM, @UkraineCoE, @UNHumanRightsUA or @UNHCRUkraine office.

Whatever faces the UK, it's complex. To prosper we will need these:

Careful, long term thinking
Objectivity in difficult tradeoffs
Honesty, shrewd negotiation
Deep analysis and preparation
Dedicated ruthless planning

Meanwhile it's #Bodger #Johnson's Queens Speech.

Chances? ❌
This dichotomy is just weird:

Take #Brexit.

Imagine, if you can; your passion for extracting the UK from the EU was unpersuaded by any argument to the contrary.


But did you think doing it was so simple that Slapdash-cover-the-cracks Bodger was the guy to run it?
Out of the blue, we faced a Global #COVID19 Pandemic.

OK,caught a little short with the No 10 leadership. It happens.

But maybe reconsider when you found out he dodged all the scientific briefings at the start to write a book?

You wanted to #Bodger your way through?

Appalling bit of subediting(?) but the article itself lays out both the history and US context of #RoeVsWade and the consequences of overturning it with rather more nuance:… The Times view on US abortion law and overturning Roe v Wade
The "right approach" the writer appears to support 👇 is the codification of the #RightToChoose into federal #law - which should have happened decades ago. The major issue being the parlous state of US politics... What it should also do is push the issue to the top of the p
For the avoidance of doubt, I absolutely support women's #RightToChoose - it is not for ANY authority to tell people what they can or can't do with their bodies. Anger is justified, but not enough; this is an issue around which people must #mobilise and begin taking back #agency.

This is #Iran's regime continuing its policy of taking dual citizens hostage and "using" them when necessary.

As long as the West continues its #appeasement vis-à-vis Tehran, innocent people will be abducted, jailed, tortured, and even executed.
"Jalali, a disaster medicine doctor and researcher, was arrested in 2016 on an academic visit to Iran and sentenced to death on charges of espionage for Israel's Mossad."
The #IRGC "have arrested dozens of dual nationals in recent years, mostly on espionage charges. Activists have accused #Iran of using them as bargaining chips... Iran has exchanged several jailed foreigners & dual nationals with Iranians detained abroad."…

Investors in @BarrickGold have a huge opportunity to press the multinational gold mining giant at next week’s AGM to face up to #HumanRights abuses by police at its North Mara gold mine in #Tanzania. Here are some problems we found in its latest #ESG Sustainability Report 🧐🧵
Barrick states it “cannot be accountable for the actions of a national police force”, yet it has an undisclosed agreement between the Tanzanian mine & police to pay, equip and accommodate police guarding the mine, integrating them within its security structure.
Barrick has repeatedly tried to frame #humanrights abuses as “personal injury”, an approach contested in a related case at the UK High Court last month. With at least 4 deaths and 7 assaults documented since Barrick took full operational control, it has a lot more to answer for.

Courageous #HumanRights lawyer @SDonziger is finally free today, after 6 months of confinement — punishment for winning a $9 billion judgment against Chevron.… #FreeDonziger #StevenDonziger #BigOil #Pollution #Environment #Amazon ImageImage
I hope it’s final, because Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, the petroleum industry's black robed Putin, is on a crusade to muzzle the man who exposed Chevron's poisoning of the Amazon.
Let’s get some heat on New York’s corporate senators Gillibrand & Schumer to block the nomination of Chevron Consigliere Jennifer Rearden to the federal bench. And let's flood the White House with the demand that @SDonziger be given the Medal of Freedom.

I’m currently in #Japan,attending the 4th Asia-Pacific Water Summit, together with other high-level delegates including heads of states and representatives from international organizations in the Asia-Pacific region to discuss various water-related issues. #APWS @JapanGov

By achieving #SDG6, we amplify, exponentially, our ability to achieve so much more than the #humanrights to water and sanitation.
We enhance our chances of eliminating inequalities, supporting healthier lives, achieving gender equality – and combatting climate change.

Achieving #SDG6 is a golden opportunity that needs to be seized,to make it all possible.
The fact that this agenda is not yet receiving the prioritization it demands, is troubling. Especially as we’re talking about a fundamental human rights. Legal obligations. @JapanGov
