Why do #BBC & #NPR reports differ 99% from what #Mariupol citizens say?

DPR & Russians liberated it on March 30 bringing food, meds & even diapers.

They've wanted to be part of the Donetsk People's Republic since 2014 when CIA Nazis took over Ukraine.
Are #BBC & #NPR's #MorningEdition reporting on a different war?

All they say Russians did, Azof actually did to #Mariupol for 30+ days.

Russia honored exit routes/Azof shot people who tried to escape.

All this I've heard from many folks on the ground.
Corporate #CNN #MSNBC #FoxNews & CIA-run news #BBC #NPR are waging a


If YOU want to save 1000s of lives & stop NATO/CIA Nazis from taking over Europe, RT links to honest reporting.

As tonight’s unfolding #Ukraine tragedy underscores only too starkly—

—the @POTUS @JoeBiden Administration MUST PRESERVE (extended)#DETERRENCE 100% in the forthcoming #Nuclear Posture Review/#NPR.

Must avoid not only “#NoFirstUse/#NFU”—BUT ALSO “#SolePurpose”—road to perdition!
Virtue signaling is no substitute for #deterrence signaling!

The #NPR must avoid not only widely-dismissed “#NoFirstUse” (#NFU) language, but also the dangerous concept of “#SolePurpose.”

Text/graphics from @DeptofDefense 2021 #China #Military Power Report show key reasons why. ImageImageImageImage
#SolePurpose” = unacceptably erosive/destabilizing, not a no-or-low-cost #VirtueSignaling sop to #ArmsControl idealism.

Would reduce credibility/#deterrent of @POTUS’s potential counters to massive #conventional offensives by #Russia/#China.

Tragic reminder tonight in #Ukraine ImageImageImage

It seems my assumption that I would have a quiet transition was naïve. So I will attempt to provide whatever insight I can… using language the internet understands lol🧵#NPR
Every single word of my announcement is true. I am leaving of my own accord with no malice or resentment. I have had a great run with a company full of people I respect and admire. And I am ready to try something new.
I also understand that 4 hosts leaving in a year – three of them POC women– is a red flag as my co host @arishapiro underscored earlier this week. I appreciate him taking it upon himself to raise it.

Some personal news…this week I am joining many of you in “The Great Resignation”. 1/5
I love my job. I love the listeners of @NPR and the people who make it. Alongside that truth, I am ready to stretch my wings and try something new. 2/5
No doubt leaving @npratc is a risk. It’s in the Library of Congress! It has been an honor to be part of this legacy of service and to work with the incredible hosts, producers and editors who make it. Thanks for letting me be part of its story.

Linking of #Aadhaar - #NPR began in Telangana in 2015 and the work continued till late 2017.

The #Telangana government spent crores for both NPR updating and seeding of Aadhaar with NPR database.

RTI info given to @SQMasood shows aspects of data capturing in the #NPR app, such as a provision for the respondent to know whether the enumerator has entered data accurately, are still 'under process of finalisation'

Breaking: In the possible first blow to the country’s statistical system due to #CAA_NRCProtests, the government may defer a key socio-economic survey as surveyors are facing the wrath of people who see it as an exercise for determining their citizenship.…
The decision to recommend the postponement of the NSO’s 78th round of survey on domestic tourism expenditure and multiple indicators, which began last month, was taken at a meeting of an expert committee on Wednesday. The government will take a final call now.

@rajinikanth Sir, you have said students should not be misled &should consult elders/learned people about #CAA_NRC #NPR .Can you kindly answer a few questions so that we are all enlightened?1.What will happen to those who are unable to produce docs needed to prove citizenship?1/n
2.If a Hindu from say, Tamil Nadu or Karnataka does not have documents what happens to him or her and likewise if a Muslim from TN does not have documents what happens to them?
3. Do you support the concept of putting people in detention camps ? 2/n
4. Do you support disenfranchisement of/removal of all Govt.benefits to people if they don't have citizenship documents irrespective of religion? Specifically should a Hindu who has no documents also be put in detention camp or be disenfranchised?

Here's the thing about the #CAA. Govt Ministers say repeatedly that it's objective is to help Hindus and other faith migrants who had to flee majoritarian relig. persecution. If that was the sole objective then how would it NOT have been met with Sec 2 amended as below? How?
If the Govt cannot argue that my proposed amendment would NOT HAVE helped Hindu etc persecuted migrants then they will have to accept that the sole purpose of EXCLUDING muslims in #CAA was to discriminate against them. That's as maybe.. but there's worse to follow...
If you consider #NPR and #NRC, it is clear that with the #CAA implemented, the only Paperless and Document-light people who can be suspected of being economic migrants from #Pak and #Bangla and therefore packed off to a detention camp will be #Muslims. Most of them will be Indian

A Thread.
Subj: #CAA_NRC_NPR - The UK experience with a National Identity Register.
To: #Citizens of #India
Recommendation: The Protests should continue
Summary: The Identity Cards Act, 2006 was finally repealed in 2010 as unworkable, and violative of civil liberties.
Following the Sept 11 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre, New York, the level of paranoia was high. One of the ideas to make Britain safe was to introduce compulsory Identity cards for every one. The full history of the National Identity Register is detailed..
The detail is eerily similar to what India is proposing.
The Act specified fifty categories of information that the National Identity Register could hold on each citizen,[1] including ...

#EPWConversations: Today, @digitaldutta, one of our panellists for #DataSocieties, will be talking about data and elections from @epw_in's handle. We invite you to join the conversation and ask questions.
Data is being used to influence us, and our society everywhere. Data is being weaponised during elections now, to spread misinformation using micro-targeting. This essentially involves influencing every individual, uniquely based on their personal data. | @digitaldutta
Politicians have always influenced voters based on their caste, religion and class, and this identity politics has been important for communities to claim their rights as well. This is changing, with new networks to influence voters using their personal data. | @digitaldutta

As for their execution skills, we all no better now.

Majeed Ullah Khan (@MBTparty President) Statement on #SupremeCourt Refusing Interim Stay on #CAA; Challenges @AmitShah to Visit Ongoing #ShaheenBaghProtests to Face Public Instead of TV Debates. #CAA_NRC_Protests Read Full: /1
He contended that #ConstitutionofIndia is “Common Sense” codified. It's clear that #CitizenshipAmendmentAct goes against numerous Articles. It's appalling that Court deferred hearings in refusal to put interim stay on draconian #CAA and modified #NationalPopulationRegister /2
People’s trust in a truly secular, non-partisan #SupremeCourt is wavering. Moreover, refusal on interim #CAA stay has common public concerned regarding growing, free reign of a bigoted, right-wing #RSS-#BJP specter looming over nation that we continue to battle on all fronts. /3
