As #Myanmar 🇲🇲 enters 2022 the #PDF and allied resistance groups are taking the initiative across the country, launching multiple hit-and-run attacks on the military.

Fighting is especially heavy in the #Demoso Township in #Kayah state…
#Myanmar 🇲🇲: one example was an attack by the Eagles Army (#PDF group in Tigayaing Township) on two military patrol boats going down the Ayeryawady river.

Around 20 soldiers were reportedly killed by mine attacks on the boats. #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar
#Myanmar 🇲🇲: another attack was launched by the Aung San Force (#PDF group in #Magway) who dropped explosives from a drone down on a military convoy of 150 soldiers below. #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar

Que tristeza ver aún enorme grupo de jóvenes gritando con todas sus fuerzas los nombres #Karen y #Eduardo en las calles y plazas de #SantaTecla abro hilo. @DesaparecidosSV
Ante un CAM de #SantaTecla que hasta antes del voto por la N patrullaba por toda la ciudad y ahora es casi invisible y cuyas cámaras de video vigilancia atraparon violadores de niños, ladrones y asesinos pero que hoy son ciegas y el CAMST es casi inexistente y corrompido.
También ante una policía que antes nos defendía y ahora sólo guarda silencio y un ejército que ahora se dedica a ordenar a la policía como sus empleaditos mientras toman video y reportan a los que protestan por si dicen algo que haga ver mal al régimen y a su plan de control.

#Karen is trending so thought this short comic strip would be my retort to those clutching pearls over being called #Karen
PSA- If your 1st reaction to this comic is to cry that it’s “racist” & comment I’m deleting your post & blocking your “gaslighting” ASS! Carry-on
The white fragility comments I’ve received from this post is EPIC! I refuse to make myself small in my own thread. If you don’t like this post? Keep scrolling, I’m not even going to entertain opposing arguments from those who don’t acknowledge plights of the marginalize.

“Both of my parents passed away when I was a young boy. When I was small, my parents always told me that ‘Education is the best solution of a problem.’ It inspires me towards my goals. I studied in my village until Grade-6 when I fled to a refugee camp, but I had no goal. /1 Image
Now I want to be a medic, who works in the hospital.
Before I become a medic, I have to complete university.
Before I attend university, I have to finish my GED first.
By the grace of God, I have a chance to study in the @PartnersRelief GED program. /2
I am so blessed because some friends wanted this kind of chance, but they did not get it. My commitment to my people is that I will work and help them as much as I can. I hope you will continually give a hand to the Karen people. Our #Karen people rely on you.” /3

"#Myanmar faces economic collapse due to the combined effect of the new coronavirus and the coup, which in its [@UNDP] worst-case analysis could put nearly half the country’s 54 million people into poverty." - @Reuters

Poverty and food security have long been concerns for families in #Myanmar's ethnic states after decades of conflict and neglect. Kind, tenacious people, they want peace and self-sufficient tools to keep their children safe, healthy, and in school.
#WhatsHappeninglnMyanmar Image
We’ve been working alongside our friends in #Myanmar for 27 years. Over this time we have formed deep relationships with #Kachin, #Karen, #Shan and #Rohingya communities, always consulting with them to find out exactly what their needs are responding as rapidly as possible. Image

My thoughts on Oklahoma's HB 1775...

I get it. You’re still uncomfortable that racism exists today.

I thought it would be gone in my lifetime, too.

You hate the thought that racism exists. That some people are racists - or worse, someone might think YOU are racist ... because racism is abhorrent ... so those who AREN'T targeted just don’t want to talk about it.

It’s uncomfortable. It’s scary. It’s unnerving.


Because deep down inside they know THEIR lives today would be far different if the historical tables had been turned and we were studying THEIR family stories in US History.

It’s been six weeks since the Myanmar coup. Despite deaths, violence by security forces, internet shutdowns and night raids, demonstrators brave the streets. This was Hledan, Yangon, last night ✊
For the 31st night in a row the internet has been cut in Myanmar. That, and cell networks have now been offline for two days - @netblocks reports. #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar Image

记得那个在纽约中央公园里没使用狗绳牵着狗散步的Amy Cooper吗?去年3月25日一位名叫Christian Cooper的黑人观鸟者提醒Amy Cooper遛狗时注意看好她自己的狗,气急败坏的Amy报了假警,这对一个黑人来说有失去生命的危险,警察无预警杀害没有任何威胁的少数族裔不是稀奇事。 ImageImageImageImage
Amy Cooper因为她的白人特权行为被美国人民在网上强烈谴责,这样喜欢找别人麻烦的富裕中产阶级白人女性被称为 #Karen。今天早上检察官在法院向法官要求放弃对她的起诉,法官批准了。这个结果一点也不让人意外,有钱的白人总是能轻易逃脱法律制裁,监狱是留给少数族裔的。
Trum就是这样。美国司法程序步骤复杂进展缓慢,但是漏洞极多,中期选举前Trump都可以到处走动,跑到全国各地为他的走狗们竞选,把这些人渣送到国会破坏美国民主制度。假如现任Manhattan DA没有接受Trump的捐款,Trump会因为欺诈罪被起诉投入监狱,美国也不用承受四年浩劫。…

How Does The #Myanmar #Coup affect #Rohingya? [An Explainer Thread]

Approximately 600,000 #Rohingya remain in #Burma - more than a quarter reside in concentration-like IDP camps and the majority of the rest live in daily fear of new and ongoing violence against them.
How Does The #Myanmar #Coup affect #Rohingya?

The #military #coup could see the #Rohingya facing the backlash once again as it is the same military and leaders that were responsible for #genocide in 2017.
Also they will continue to be excluded from future democratic processes
How Does The #Myanmar #Coup affect #Rohingya?

For the #Rohingya now in #Bangladesh - more than 1million, any potential #repatriation will be halted. The #Burma #military have no intention of accepting back the #Rohingya

for everyone who is confused af about the #burma #myanmar #coup - for those who are asking, should we be calling out for #SuuKyi release? but wasnt she the one who defended and oversaw #genocide against #rohingya ? but how come everyone is up in arms about her detention now...
is it the #military or is it #suukyi who is the bad guy here...
I understand and get why you are confused. Let me just say this to clear it up for you - they were in bed together the whole time through.
There has never really been any #democracy in #Myanmar #Burma...
#SuuKyi was just a puppet for the #military. This #coup isnt even really a coup, because according to the #constitution of #Burma the military is legally entitled to do this. So what can the world do I hear you say?...

So... I have figured out who was behind the attempted coup -- the infamous terrorist organization -- #Cobra! It started when I spotted #Zartan rampaging in the #CapitolBuilding! Then I started seeing Cobra villains everywhere! Check out my thread... #Terrorism #CapitolRiots Image

Hats off and kudos to the NYC election poll workers who man the precincts, even though that term is most probably considered today a hate phrase. Either way, they were terrific this morning. Most professional and most courteous. Salute!
You haven’t lived until you’ve waited online in the cold windy dark with your New Yorker neighbors, more than you could imagine. Long queues of Hells Kitchen denizens exercising their voice and democracy. Most refreshing and most ennobling a process. I’m proud to be American.
I love the occasional #Karen, who keeps an inordinately conspicuous social distance radius, alerting to the world that they are the only ones taking Covid seriously. To be that afraid of something so deliberately showcased shows you the level of detachment many have from reality.

Now Connie is spreading Black Lives Matter conspiracies and lying again.

This woman has to be one of 2020’s greatest example of white privilege.

(Watch every video in the thread and SHARE, send emails.)
For over a month now she’s been silent publicly. She shows up at the local Republican executive committee meeting and starts up the lies again. She has no remorse. She’s now playing the victim. Like any good #Karen or #Connie always does.
It’s everybody but her lies. Everyone is to blame but her brutality to a teenager. It’s her on video using profanity against her neighbors kids. And this is who republicans want representing them. This is who they want sitting at the table, without mask in a pandemic with them.

I told y’all she was lying. So now there is proof she was shopping for over an hour. Just like I said then, she didn’t give a damn. She still doesn’t.

#Connie is the latest example of white privilege.…
She doesn’t believe she has to step down. She see’s nothing wrong with being a lying public official. Connie has the nation looking at our city and state, and she’s an embarrassment.

We can’t let up.
Call the school board office today and ask that she resign. Send emails too. If we let Connie stay in office we send a message to all the #Karen’s of the world that they can carry on with business as usual. Connie is Karen’s momma or grand mother (figuratively).

I was just harassed and called a “psycho cunt” for telling a young man at my neighborhood grocery store #HEB in #Texas to wear a mask as required by local ordinance and signage in the store. #COVID19 cases are spiking in #Houston #Texas
2/ It’s my day off. I had to pick up prescriptions. I’ve been traveling, so I wore an N95 mask and goggles to protect myself and others. I told the man I have been on #COVID19 units and that the risk is real. I also said we’re all #Texans
3/ I’m a registered Independent and a Christian. I just traveled to cover an @realDonaldTrump rally in #Tulsa. Regardless of what you think of me, #MSM or #FakeNews, this guy broke the law.

It's interesting that #Karen has been a concept throughout history:


And, off the top of my head, a half dozen others with similar though not exact connotations
Amusingly, "yenta" was originally a given name, so the correspondence to #Karen seems exact
And how could I forget: termagant!

As my friends and family know, I clown around a lot on my personal IG. Honestly, I do it because the rest of my life - my work, my studies, my very existence as Black woman - is so incredibly heavy at times. I don’t think many of the people in my life can even grasp what it 1/
feels like to walk around in this world in skin that is not white.

I love my life and the people in it. I truly do. But I don’t share with most the microaggressions I encounter on a fairly regular basis bc I feel exhausted by the burden of having to constantly teach about 2/
equity and privilege in both my professional and personal life. It’s not that I don’t want to help them learn when their hearts are genuinely open to it. It’s that I sometimes just need to pretend that the world is not as ugly as it is in order to survive in it. Tonight, we 3/

Women like #AmyCooper weaponized their 'whiteness' for centuries to Maim/Kill/Deny black people life & liberty.

Her action isn't 'abhorrent' its EVIL. Listen to her fake shriek & fear. This got African Americans lynched & its why she called the cops.

She's a Karen.

.@FTI_US the ONLY action you must take swiftly & unequivocally is to FIRE #AmyCooper. Period.

She tried to get #christiancooper killed by the cops. She deliberately lied as you can see from the video to accuse him of a crime he didn't commit.
Many #AmyCooper are Heads/Managers/Supervisors etc at top organisations today weaponizing their whiteness in subtle & overt ways to harass, marginalise & fire black staff

When Black people complain - the cloak of #whiteprivilege cover these #racist #Karen to make us the problem.
