🚨Pro-democracy activist in #Russia gets 4-year prison sentence for attending Moscow #protests for fair elections. Konstantin #Kotov becomes the latest political prisoner in Putin's war on dissent. Kotov aptly wore a #Sentsov t-shirt in his courtroom cage. m.activatica.org/blogs/view/id/…
Kotov is the first recent protester found guilty under #Russia's "3 strikes" 212.1 law criminalizing attending 3 protests. He had 72 hours to prepare for his snap show trial. Human rights org Memorial declared him a political prisoner. Outside Moscow court chants of #FreeKotov
Kotov was found guilty under the same 212.1 anti-protest law human rights activist Ildar Dadin went to prison for in 2016. I wrote about Dadin's case & how #Russia criminalizes freedom of speech & assembly.

#Russia: Over 600 people arrested in Moscow's brutal clampdown on pro-democracy #protests today. Russians are risking life & limb for the right to fair elections, to end the ban on opposition candidates for city council. Sheer numbers show how scared the Mayor is of people power.
🗳✊#Russia #Protests: Riot police crackdown on pro-#democracy protesters in #Moscow today. Russians are protesting opposition candidates being booted from ballots. They don’t want taxation w/o representation. Sounds familiar. Video via @novaya_gazeta
#Russia #Moscow #protests: Riot police out in full force–with dogs–beating protesters on the ground. This couple asked for an ambulance for his broken ribs & a concussion. Cops refused, hauled him off to paddywagon, claiming “nobody beat you.” @mediazzzona

The extensive presence of #IRGC & repressive forces in the streets of #Ahvaz - fear of rising popular anti-government uprisings.

Congratulations, you are writing a news article on #Haiti! It is a country with a vibrant culture and a rich history. Here are a few things to consider as you write your article.
1/ Is the word “violence” in your headline or article? Violence does happen in Haiti, just like everywhere else. If you are referring to political violence, please make clear attributions: Who is causing the violence? Who is the victim of the violence?
2.1/ There are #protests happening in #Haiti. How do you want to describe them? Before using words like “looting” or “rioting,” consider this: are you describing the protests with the same language you use to describe similar events in other countries?

On #Twitter the #GiletJaunes hashtag is more of an #American far right #disinformation campaign. Some of these accounts could be #Russian? I don't know.

#Paris #YellowVest
This network graph was collected using the #GiletJaunes and #YellowVest hashtags on December 2 2018
You can clearly see that the hashtags are dominated by Pro-#Trump and #QAnon accounts.
I have made the #disinformation accounts red and abnormally large.
Here is a spreadsheet with the information for each node on the graph.

September 9 #Russia: Protests in 85 cities today against law raising retirement age. First rallies (& arrests) in Far East, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk. Signs: "I Want to Live to See My Pension" "It's Not Reform; It's Robbery" "Stop lying"
Livestream @Navalny
@navalny Putin raised Russia's pension age b/c wars—in Syria, Ukraine, on democracy—and corruption are costly. He tries silencing opposition, arresting their leaders, beating supporters. Russians persist. They protest bc they believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything✊
@navalny More photos from today's #protests in #Russia against Kremlin pension reform plan to raise the retirement age, via @novaya_gazeta. Among the great signs: "Putin, when are you going to retire?" novayagazeta.ru/articles/2018/…

Refuse Fascism's flyers and website CLAIM they want peaceful protest until Trump is out of office. Sounds harmless, until you look closely at who is behind this group. Hint: Nov. 4th is RUSSIA'S UNITY DAY. 🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺 Thread 1 #ThursdayThoughts #GeeksResist #RefuseFascism
Refuse Fascism's flyers and website seem innocuous. That's intentional. The "Who Is Refuse Fascism?" page on their site has no reference to the Revolutionary Communist Party or RF founder Bob Avakian. 2 #BobAvakian #Nov4ItBegins #nov4thitbegins #Nov4 refusefascism.org/about-contact/
But this Refuse Fascism website post from July is an invitation to all who participated in RF's July 15th "event" to join with the Revolutionary Communist Party led by Bob Avakian. 3 #RCP #Avakian #Communism #revolution
