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

… the last time missing @INTERPOL Pres. #MengHongwei was in the news (aside from a September blip abt a spat b/t #Serbia/#Kosovo re: #INTERPOL membership) was in July. He met w/ #Russia'n Investigative Cmte Chairman #Bastrykin & was criticized by Prosecutor General #YuriChaika.
… another official who was detained by Communist #China recently is #NurBekri. He was head of the #PRC's National Energy Administration & was a #Uyghur. He went missing about a week after meeting w/ #Putin. Is it possible that #Beijing fears #Russia is recruiting its people?

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.

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...

(This lesbian couple is from 1907.)
October 8 is #InternationalLesbianDay
In South Africa, lesbians are at high risk from #correctiverape & murder, just for being gay.

19th c #lesbians lived together in what were called #BostonMarriages. Some have tried to de-gay them.
