Top 10 countries by projected population gains and losses by 2100. Makes for pretty grim reading for the Balkans and parts of Eastern Europe. So much of this decline is fuelled by outflow of young ppl moving abroad - a demographic time bomb. pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2019…
This map of Bosnia is particularly stark. With exception of a few urban centres in centre/north east of the country, BiH is dying. Large parts of Herzegovina & the Federation’s eastern border area register <15 people per square km. Some displaced by war; more by economic reality.
A little out of date (numbers will probably be worse now) but #Moldova is much the same. Take away Chisinau & environs (Tiraspol in Transnistria would be the same but doesn’t feature due to RU occupation), bulk of communes are severely depopulated. ~45% of pop. working abroad.

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

Ok folks - Day 2 of the #ICJ #Gambia v #Myanmar provisional measures hearings going to start - important as no submissions yet by Myanmar so, first formal indication of their legal strategy. [I’ll be away on an interview for a bit so hoping we have other “live tweeters”?? :)]
Agent of Myanmar: #ASSK takes the floor as minister for foreign affairs (is this the first time an agent doesn’t have a legal background); #genocide convention “wholeheartedly” signed by Myanmar; not applied to Kosovo or exodus of Serb population from Croatia. No Specific intent
Incorrect factual situation presented to court; though suffering of innocent people. #Rakhine state background - internal armed conflict; Arakan army seeks independence; displacement & conflict, affecting civilians

Walter J. Rockler "NATO committed supreme int'l crime” in Kosovo #Serbia. NATO had in addition violated the UN Charter sections 2(4) and (7) & UN resolution 2131, which declared that “forceful military intervention in any country is aggression and a crime without justification.”
When the Croats supported by #NATO backing and encouragement drove the #Serbs from #Krajina with 300,000 Serbs forcibly expelled from their homes this conduct evoked no criticism from NATO humanitarians 1/
currently with Kosovo under benevolent #NATO occupation some 250,000 or more Kosovo #Serbs have been forced into other parts of #Yugoslavia under threats of murder by the KLA who condemns or prevents this Exodus??

There is NO #FreePress in the West.
There is only Establishment sycophancy and lies.
The Corporate media is owned & controlled by the Oligarchs.

Actual Truth Tellers are fired, blacklisted, censored, smeared and jailed.
M$M doesn't want any Truth.

#WorldPressFreedomDay
The secret of successful propaganda is to have seemingly diverse media all telling the same lies - Joseph Goebbels

There is NO #FreePress in the West - there is only organized propaganda and lies.
#WorldPressFreedomDay
Successful propaganda relies on endlessly repeating the same short phrases and slogans until they become "Truth" - Joseph Goebbels.

Thread:Germany and its citizens had to come to terms with the horrors committed in their name, in order to become the regional power they are today. No, not every German shot Jews, but every German had to be aware that it was done in the name of their superiority and victimhood.
The propaganda kept Germans blinded during the war, but they nonetheless had the duty to become aware of the horrors once they were committed. They had to open their eyes. Come to terms with what happened. Why it happened. And then how not to repeat it.
The perpetrators had to be held accountable, with no sense of victimization. Only because draconian measures were imposed after WWI or b/c of the crimes of the Red Army after WWII, no Nazi became less of a Nazi. The crimes of the others didn't justify the crimes of their own.

1# The crime against #Serbs in #Kosovo & #Metohija occurred 15 yrs ago today(17.03.2004)
The March #Pogrom was planned by the Western intelligence services organized by the Albanian (Shiptar) separatist-terrorist leaders & executed by over 50,000 Albanians
bit.ly/2ucmKlO
2# They killed 28 #Serbs, injured 800, expelled 4000 from their homes, ethnically cleansed 6 towns and 9 villages, demolished & destroyed 35 #Serbian holy sites, 1000 #Serbian houses, 10 Serbian schools, health centers, post offices and other #Serbian state-owned buildings.
3# Everything was done with passive observation of 20,000 #KFOR members, 3,000 members of the #UMNIK, and nobody responded.
Since 1999, when #KiM fell under the occupation of the West, genocide against #Serbs has been carried out by Shiptar terrorists.

I want to turn your attention to the #Balkans.

Tens of thousands are protesting in #Serbia for the fifth week in a row. Despite the snow and cold weather, despite the censorship in the country, the people want their voice to be heard. I hope the world takes a good look.
Publicly owned communications giant Telekom bought a private cable network Kopernikus (owned by a brother of a high ranking ruling party official) for €200m.

Money was then used to finance the acquisitin of the remaining two foreign owned TV stations with national frequency.
The reasons for the protest:

-wide scale censorship and media control
-beating of @BorkoStef, one of the opposition leaders with metal rods
-eroding democracy and freedom of elections
-shady negotiations with #Kosovo behind closed doors
-corruption

🇨🇳 EE.UU ha acusado a #China de utilizar su poderío militar y económico -mediante la iniciativa One Belt One Road- para ejercer su influencia en países menos desarrollados.

Aunque lo niegue, China está aprovechando su poder para su beneficio geoestratégico.

⬇️ Abro hilo ⬇️
🇹🇴 #Tonga es el último país en unirse a la iniciativa OBOR a cambio de aumentar 5 años el plazo para devolver los préstamos concedidos por China.

Nukualofa debe a Pekín 115 millones de dólares, lo que equivale a casi un tercio del Producto Interior Bruto anual.
🇱🇰 #SriLanka tuvo que arrendar a 'China Merchants Port Holdings' el 70% del puerto de Hambantota por un periodo de 99 años a cambio de 1.100 millones de dólares.

Colombo se vio obligado a realizar esta concesión debido a la enorme deuda externa contraída con Pekín desde 2007.

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

We are living in a huxleyianorwellian world where the exceptionally exceptional regimes of USA, ISR & SAU do whatever they want, mass murderers praise a mass murderer at his funeral, broadcasted by information mass murderers, as hero &, since 9/11, laws of nature are upside-down.
LET'S pull the mass media's, projecting vitriolic fairy tales into our perilous Plato's cave, plug, GET THE F*** OUT of the insane huxleyianorwellian psychopathic anti universe & live together in freedom, respect, harmony, peace & prosperity for everybody, not only for the few!
Everybody knows, since Herman & Chomsky's Manufacturing Consent at least, that the mass media are enemies of the people. If @realDonaldTrump or @jeremycorbyn dare to do the unthinkable, tell the truth, flack machine shoots and Russia gets the common enemy.

#Serbia’s govt continues its alarming (re)turn Milosevic era: Foreign Minister Dacic claims BiH’s RS entity should have declared independence when Kosovo did. A direct attack on Dayton Accords, BiH territorial integrity & sovereignty. Where is the EU? US? ba.n1info.com/a278083/Svijet…
Recall, this is happening in context of Belgrade’s surging push to partition Kosovo which I have claimed all along is primarily a bid to legitimize their pretensions on Bosnia. And Dacic, the ex-Milosevic lieutenant, keeps confirming just that. And still radio silence from EU/US.
So, to be blunt: the Vucic govt in Serbia is testing the US & EU resolve for re-drawing borders in the Balkans. They would prefer a grand bargain but are also continually hinting at the possibility of violence. On both counts, they’re feeling emboldened by EU & US silence.

Vice President of #Serbia’s National Assembly mocks the death of Hatidža Mehemdović, one of the world renowned “Mothers of Srebrenica” (as well as the murder of her sons & husband during the genocide). Would that her views were rare in @avucic’s Serbia. rs.n1info.com/a406608/Vesti/…
This woman is a leading figure in the far-right, ultra-nationalist Radicals, still headed by a convicted war criminal, & @avucic’s mentor. Vucic claims to have “changed” his views but he’s never explained how or why in detail & routinely negates SRB’s role in BiH War.
That the EU establishment has fallen all over itself to rehabilitate Vucic & his increasingly autocratic regime only makes this more frightening. He’s consolidating power, cozying up to power, letting the lunatic fringe run loose again. We’ve seen this film before.

The EU recognized this hard work by blocking the start of membership negotiations for a state, #Macedonia, that has undertaken more credible reforms in the last yr than @avucic’s #Serbia has during his whole tenure. And yet Belgrade keeps opening chapters... #WBSummitLondon
Here’s what @FedericaMog should acknowledge: by blocking the start of negotiations w Albania & Macedonia while continuing them w the illiberal regime in Serbia the EU confirmed that local elites are better off making themselves a problem rather than a partner. #WBSummitLondon
Brussels has always been afraid of confronting bad-faith actors — see Vucic, Dodik, Gruevski, Covic — allowing instead the tail to wag the dog, and then punishing actual attempts at progress as an inane show of strength. No one fears the EU, in short, not even in the Balkans.

Happy #Pride
I was expelled from my all-girls high school for being a #lesbian & put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy.

I became an #LGBT activist to prevent that from happening to other girls like I was.
Yet conversion therapy is still legal.
Happy #Pride
I memorialize every #lesbian who died hidden in the shadows because of #homophobia, who was forced into compulsory heterosexuality, who was made to live a lie. You deserved better. We honor you by making a safer world for lesbians today. Amen.
🏳️‍🌈🖤❤️💜💙💚🧡💛
On #Pride I think of the #lesbian who became my mentor. She propelled me forward into lesbian #feminist writing. #AudreLorde opened a door for me I didn't know existed. I am so grateful she was in my life and left such a legacy for #lesbians.
