While the focus is on #Putin's #UkrainianGenocide, let's not forget about #Xi's #UyghurGenocide and his support for Putin, Kim Jong-un, the Myanmar junta, MBS, and other tyrants. Xi Jinping is the world's #1 advocate for #HumanRightsViolations.…
The #UyghurGenocide includes "internment, forced abortion, forced sterilization, forced birth control, forced labor, torture, brainwashing, rape, and gang rape" as policy. No one deserves to be subject to such grave #HumanRightsViolations. Xi ruined #HongKong. #Taiwan isn't safe.
Xi believes #China needs to be strong to avoid the trauma it inhereted from the "Century of Humiliation" at the hands of Western colonial powers and Japan. But in asserting China's strength, Xi sides with the worst of tyrants and crushes those who believe in #HumanRights.

Lots of pretty bad Anglophone commentary on #Algeria these days, but this one in Newsweek has got to be (among) the worst.

A thread.

I’m a strong believer in sticking in your lane.

@GordonGChang should probably have done so.

His latest on #Algeria is all over the road and recklessly so.

Let’s start with the second sentence. First, #Algeria didn’t "create" the crisis with #Morocco

Second, I’m not sure Algiers sees it as much of a crisis.

The next two weeks promise to bring astonishing weather to both sides of the Red Sea & across the Sahara. In this weather bulletin I will explain what the models are forecasting.

Today's #NorthAfrica #HornOfAfrica and #MiddleEast rainfall forecasts follow.
In the image above we see part of Arabia and part of the #NileBasin storms - those which feed the Blue Nile/Abbay and the Tekeze basins the source of most of the Nile's flow.
Below we see:
1. All Nile Basin rainfall as of this evening
2. All of this evenings #ArabianStorms
The rainfall we see on both sides of the Red Sea comes mostly from the same source - the monsoon over the Arabian Sea, India and South East Asia.
A satellite image from this morning shows what we currently think to be the cradle of humanity. Where we all come from.

Sergey Soygu, Russian defence minister, has subbed #America like eight times in his speech. FTT, he's right. America has lost the war in #Afghanistan.

"#Africa is of particular concern because our Western partners have not allowed them to stabilise economically."

Is he right? Image
He just reminded us that the Soviet Union supported many liberation movements with #Africa, and has offered a hand of friendship.

P.S I hate it when they (and they're all guilty of this) of talking of Africa as a country.
Another direct sub: "we will sign agreements with our African friends without imposing our ways on you like our Western partners do."

This morning's rainfall forecast is actually last nights (I am in the process of moving - a bit stretched. There is a lot going on.

Here we see the ongoing impacts of a #WestAfricaWaterPlume coming into the Middle East and 2 large storms, one over Syria and one over Medina
Here are last night's 10-day rainfall forecasts for North Africa which are nothing short of astonishing with respect especially to what is expected in #Algeria and #Mauritania. The largest forecast #DesertRain event to date.
This animation is from the is morning and shows the current status of both #WestAfricanMonsoon events. The Plume directed at the #MiddleEast is continuing and the one in the west Sahara is strengthening.

Did you know that #Africa's 55 countries account for just 1.5% of #COVID19 vaccines administered globally? Why? Incompetent governments? Vaccine hesitancy? Poor vaccine efficacy? Our new monthly #infographic report uses the data to explain... A 🧵1/…
To date, less than 3% of the world's #COVID19 cases have been recorded in #Africa, despite having only administered 1.5% of the world's vaccines, and 2% of the world's #COVID19 tests... 2/
However, #Africa is not a country. It's possible to split African countries into 6 categories - depending on total cases they have recorded. Of the 55 African countries, 6 varied countries are currently seeing new daily records of #COVID19 deaths... 3/

Today's #ArabianStorms went in a different direction during the day, but ended up in a familiar place in the end.

Today's #MiddleEast and #Ethiopia #HornOfAfrica rain forecasts follow in the thread below.
In the animation above you can see a flow of clouds from Sudan to Oman. This flow actually originates to the South West in the Central African Republic. Here you see the CAR to Khartoum leg of the journey.
Over the day this stream of moisture intensified powering storms in Oman, which then split into two streams, one heading north over Iran and one to the East to India.

Today during Black Immigrant Advocacy Week of Action, we call on @POTUS and @DHS_Secretary to use their authority to designate #TPS and #DED now to protect Black lives! #Act4BlackImms
At least 3.9 million people are in need of humanitarian aid in #Cameroon and half a million are displaced by conflict. @DHS_Secretary must designate #CameroonTPS now! Learn more here: #Act4BlackImms
40,000 Cameroonians in the U.S. are at risk of deportation to multiple ongoing conflicts in Cameroon. #TPS would safeguard people and keep families united. @DHS_Secretary must designate #CameroonTPS Now! #Act4BlackImms Image

[THREAD] 1/8 Contributing to the debate around the roles of the State, NGOs & intl partners in aid process post #BeirutBlast. Yes, NGOs can’t replace state institutions & sidelining the State could undermine long-term recovery prospects… BUT
2/8 What are State institutions doing & showing to convince citizens, NGOs & intl partners to engage & re-channel part of the aid through the institutions? Some interesting & promising initiatives live @impact_gov @LebanonAid driven by dedicated teams, open to scrutiny… BUT
3/8 State institutions have shown #Lebanon representatives' disgraceful attitude during the Dec2 intl donors meeting. @General_Aoun’s speech focused more on scoring political points against @saadhariri on gov formation & didn’t address citizens’ pain outlined by NGOs & partners

So much said about #China as an emerging lender to Africa (& globally). But there are others worth a mention who've increased their lending to African governments: #SaudiArabia #India #Kuwait #Brazil #UAE Thread. 1/7
Data been hard to find, but International Debt Statistics, published by @WorldBank just now, show external debt by creditor country. See large growth over past decade (since widespread debt relief). #China by far largest but others' growth important (especially Gulf lenders) 2/7 Image
This often followed by point that it makes solving debt problems harder. As more creditors, not in the Paris Club, with exposure. True, but there's also a positive in African countries being able to source more capital from more places. Needs to be used well of course 3/7

🚩WESTERN MED: 4 shipwrecks in 2 weeks! Where is the public outrage?

Besides the boat with ~63 people we reported missing for two weeks now, there have been reports of three other shipwrecks along the #CanaryIslands route, just in the past three days.…
One of the three capsized boats reportedly left from #Mauritania and another two left from Western #Sahara. Our condolences to all the victims of European borders and their loved ones.
The militarisation of European borders has produced longer and ever-more dangerous routes, including those across the #Atlantic Ocean. Death at sea will cease when freedom of movement ceases to be a privilege and becomes a right. #BordersKill

Let's spare a thought for Carlo Urbani, the microbiologist whose intuition and self sacrifice almost certainly saved thousands of lives in 2003 by first identifying SARS as a deadly new disease, notifying the WHO and persuading Vietnamese authorities to isolate patients.
...and screen passengers. He was called to treat the patient that brought SARS to Hanoi, and realized that the staff at the hotel was already falling sick. His early warning, and successful policy activism with local authorities limited the extent of the outbreak.
Before the WHO, Urbani had been the president of @MSF in Italy, and was part of the delegation that accepted the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999. He was an expert on tropical diseases, and a tireless advocate for universal availability of essential medicines in poor countries.

Meet #Mauritania, to be elected tomorrow to the U.N. Human Rights Council:

@UNHumanRights .@CNN: “An estimated 10% to 20% of Mauritania’s 3.4 million people are enslaved — in 'real slavery,' according to the UN special rapporteur on slavery. The country is slavery’s last stronghold.”…
@UNHumanRights @CNN "Human bondage is a moral outrage. All decent people should see its victims as their own brothers, sisters, and children, and act to rescue them. It is time for human rights groups to focus on freeing Africa’s slaves."

THREAD: The US @StateDept released its annual #ReligiousFreedom report today. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here's where #LGBT issues come up in this year's reports.
#LGBT issues feature in this year's reports on Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, the Maldives, Mauritania, New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Sudan, Syria & Turkey. (And I probably missed others.)
The report on #Australia stays pretty neutral in its discussion of the legalization of same-sex marriage and subsequent push for religious exemptions under Australian law.…
