¿De qué va "Despechá", la canción de @Rosalia que baila la juventud y la tercera edad?

Os doy una pista:
En realidad, el enigma se desvela en los primeros 5 segundos de canción.
Dice la letra:

Podéis comprobarlo:
"Yeah" significa "Sí"

Por lo tanto, "Yeah-yeah" significa "Si-si"

This month marks the 10th anniversary of the #Jan25 revolution in #Egypt. I will be publishing several new articles soon. For starters: It is a fuck-this-shit moment for Egyptian women.
Exhibit A: three witnesses who came forward to testify in support of the victim of a high-profile gang rape case are in detention as part of the regime’s effort to counter a growing movement against exposing sexual abuse in Egypt…
Exhibit B: An #Egyptian criminal court in December acquitted three Muslim men accused of stripping naked an elderly Coptic Christian woman and parading her through the streets in 2016

1. voglio rispondere a chi mi dice che l'assassinio di #Regeni sarebbe un complotto dei servizi UK a danno dell'#Italia e dell' #ENI, perché questa tendenza nazionale a NON guardare mai quello che abbiamo davanti e a guardare sempre quello che c'è dietro, mi manda ai matti
2. questa tendenza nazionale a NON guardare più i FATTI che abbiamo davanti e a cercare sempre oscure macchinazioni che ci potrebbero essere dietro, ci sta trasformando in quella povera gente che vive nei regimi e crede che tutti i loro guai siano dovuti al *nemico*
3. premesso che so bene di cosa siano capaci servizi segreti #MI6, #CIA(da 10 ANNI violo i loro segreti lavorando ai loro file in modo NON autorizzato),abbiamo un FATTO davanti nostri occhi: un'inchiesta giudiziaria che ha stabilito responsabilità degli apparati del regime #Sisi

#Egypt’s Foreign ministry released statement condemning #Turkey’s policies against Egypt since #June30 2013.

Translation: as I said yesterday, #Erdogan’s attempt to open direct channel with Egypt has failed,

It was stupid from #Erdogan’s regime to attempt to open channel with #Sisi’s Egypt, while his Islamist fans are inciting against Sisi and calling for protests against him tomorrow Sept20.

Does #Erdogan think @AlsisiOfficial is foolish to believe the Turkish flirting?
Here is #Egypt’s FM. It states that CNN Turk has broadcasted a very biased documentary about #Egypt

I remember how #Egypt’s leftists & Islamists ranted against Toshka project, accused Mubarak of planning to send water to #Israel, which was FALSE. Now, #Ethiopians circulate that myth, while Toshka actually receives extra water of current flood, serving as strategic water reserve
Egypt’s rulers, despite their ills, have cared about our water vulnerability:

• Muhammed Ali Al Qanatir Al Khayriyyah- first modern irrigation structure
• Nasser built High Dam
• Mubarak initiated Toshka project
#Sisi started mega desalination projects+ lining of canals
This year huge Nile flood is a big plus for Egypt in its negotiations with Ethiopia on #GERD
A-It proves to hard core nationalists in AddisAbaba they can’t control the Nile as they like to believe

B-It highlights potential environmental backlash from their hasty Dam project

In this thread 👇 I want to explain a little bit more of the context surrounding the campaign of arrests, prosecutions & jail of women in #Egypt under "morality" charges that @HRW documented 15 of since late April, and why it's horrifying…
This campaign is NOT a "side" effect of oppression in Egypt. Neo-patriarchy is, by definition, a core doctorine of the nationwide oppressive machinery revived to its fullest following 2013 military takeover & re-vitalized & inspired by conservative, populist military rules (Sisi)
first: you get struck knowing that arrests targeted women for videos & photos of themselves dancing or singing on TikTok, Instagram & other apps. All those accounts (except one marginal anonymous without followers) contain "ordinary" footage. women in full clothes. nothing more.

#Egypt is building new Singapore as its newest capital.

Thread: (Updated) ⚡🇪🇬

For more than 1050 years #Cairo has served as Egypt's capital.
But since 2016 a brand-new city has been constructing to serve as the new one. The New Administrative Capital (NAC) is its name. ImageImageImageImage
It was also reported to be named "Wedian" (Arabic plural for Wadi/ Valley). NAC is located 45km east of #Cairo on 700 sq km total area (equivalent to the size of 🇸🇬) that would have a population of 6-7 million.

Coordinates: 30°01'39"N 31°45'54"E ImageImageImageImage
A joint venture company is managing the project, containing the following key departments:

- New Urban Communities Authority NUCA (Ministry of Housing)
- National Service Project Organization NSPO (Armed Forces)
- Armed Forces National Lands Projects Agency. ImageImageImageImage

1.oggi vi devo aggiornare su talmente tante cose,che non so da dove iniziare. Inizio da una semplice: dopo appena 5 mesi, le autorità USA hannno risposto al mio #FOIA sull'omicidio di #PiersantiMattarella. Per ora, non dico altro
2. appena 5 mesi e il governo americano ha risposto al mio #FOIA su #PiersantiMattarella, invece al mio #FOIA su Julian #Assange il governo USA NON ha risposto per 2 anni, fino a che ho dovuto fare causa, prendere 2 avvocati e il governo americano si è presentato con 3 avvocati
3. la causa contro il governo americano per il mio #FOIA su Julian #Assange è in corso,al momento non posso dare altre notizie, a parte che sono rappresentata da due avvocate,mentre governo USA è rappresentato da 3 avvocati

Si l’examen de la réforme des retraites à l'AN commence à vous lasser (si si, avouez), j’ai un autre match politique à vous proposer.

Le budget européen 2021-2027. Cela a l’air aride dit comme ça (voir carrément techno), mais le scénario est très prometteur.

Qq. explications.
L'UE fonctionne avec une programmation budgétaire sur 7 ans. Qu'il faut donc négocier tous les 7 ans. Entre temps, il suffit de dérouler ce qui a été décidé, en ajustant aux marges.

Actuellement, nous sommes à la fin du "cadre financier pluriannuel 2014-2020".
Aujourd'hui, les chefs d'Etat et de gouvernement des Vingt-Sept se retrouvent à Bruxelles pour tenter de déterminer le suivant. Le 2021-2027.

Ca fait un moment que l'UE bosse dessus. La proposition initiale de la Commission date de mai 2018. Maintenant, va falloir trancher.

🥁Creo que merece la pena dedicar unos tuits en español a explicar lo que pasa en Egipto (abro hilo).
Ayer, después de años de represión los egipcios (en pequeño número) se echaron de nuevo a la calle.
Las protestas fueron convocadas por un actor/contratista autoexiliado en BCN que acusa al presidente Sisi, el Ejército y Gobierno de corrupción y a Sisi de beneficiarse personalmente, acometer proyectos millonarios y construir palacios mientras su pueblo pasa hambre.
Por qué las acusaciones de Ali han encontrado audiencia?
Primero: 1/3 de los egipcios viven por debajo del umbral de la pobreza (menos de $1 al día).
En 2015 se devaluó la libra egipcia q cotiza €1-18LE La inflacción llegó a máximos de casi el 30% aunque ahora es + estable.

The corruption videos from @MohamedSecrets continue to anger and frustrate #Egypt president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. He has reacted with censorship, propaganda and arrests — including @Ghonim’s brother…
The Egyptian public has been waiting to voice their anger and Ali’s videos were the “straw that broke the camel’s back” @yhamed a former Egyptian minister, says…
"This is an accumulation of what the people have been living through for years. Whatever #Sisi has done…we see only the tip of the iceberg but the amount of corruption & the amount of mismanagement, we will all pay the price of it.” @yhamed said.…

The biggest mistake,IMHO, being made in analytical circles, with respect to misunderstanding the prospect of a confrontation in Egypt,is a resolute focus on the economy as the sole igniter.There are multi variables at play and while economy ranks high, social dimensions
Play as supreme rule and a highly under represented one in deconstructive discourse thus far. We are faced with a totalitarian system which excels at pummeling the soul on daily basis with pellets of injustice. While, thus far, fear has begotten silence that will not remain
The case. No one can know 1 that proverbial dam will break but, history, rationale, and realpolitik all say that it will. #Sisi and his deep state know this. He built the new capital, a governmental fortress outside the city for that reason, placed sons in high places bec he

Glad #Saudi troll farms & their connection to Saudi regime have been studied. I’ve experienced plenty attacks for my writing on women’s issues in #Saudi & my opposition to #Yemen war: 1 of most coordinated came after #Jamalkhashoggi shared 1 of my articles…
In February, #JamalKhashoggi kindly shared the Arabic version of an oped I wrote for Washington Post about #MosqueMeToo which I started for Muslim women to talk about sexual harassment and assault in Sacred spaces, including Hajj in Makkah, #Saudi Arabia
Immediately after Jamal shared my column, i was inundated with one of the worst and most coordinated attacks by #Saudi regime trolls I have ever experienced. For days. It was a window into how much shit he and other Saudis who are critical got and continue to get.
