#Breaking: Just in - Horrific video has been taken in #Barcelona, of a Spanish riot police vehicle driving over a protestor in the streets when trying to bust through barricades, in this 3de night of heavy clashes and violence with police officers. #Spain #Catalonia

Still processing the powerful discussion we had today in our #MA @ARUSociology session on #DecolonisingtheUniversity. A student shared her experiences of growing up in apartheid South Africa & feeling validated & 'seen' by the reading material. Became emotional as she talked
about how #apartheid affected her secondary & higher education in South Africa. Another shared his experiences of racism & racial abuse at his place of work in London, and how he'd envisioned a different kind of life in the UK when he migrated from Nigeria three years
ago. A third talked about being British in Zimbabwe and how her family had tried to convince her that the 'whites' were there to help the 'black people' and how she learnt to resist the 'civilising' narrative of #empire. A fourth discussed how her godfather rolled his eyes at her

Missing Children’s Statistics
One Missing Child Is One Too Many

The lack of a common definition of “missing child,” and a common response to the issue, results in few reliable statistics on the scope of the problem around the world.
2) #missingchild #missingchildren
Even with this challenge, we know that:

In Australia, an estimated 20,000 children are reported missing every year.

The second highest ranking officer of the #Egyptian Embassy in #Spain was detained in #Madrid for allegedly abusing his wife and daughter but his diplomatic immunity has protected him from any further legal action. euroweeklynews.com/2019/07/30/con… via @@euroweeklynews h/t @KhaledEibid
“The victim...was made aware of her right to police protection & at first she told officers that she would press charges.According to official sources however, representatives of the #Egyptian Embassy arrived at the scene of the crime to convince her not to make any allegations.”
👆🏽Translation: patriarchy protects and enables male dominance. Sometimes it’s called “diplomatic immunity.”

I'm reading through a document on #ECHR guidelines. Nothing to do, though, with the right to a fair trial (Article 6 ECHR)... where the violations preventing #FreeCatalanPoliticalPrisoners leave you punchdrunk. Just one article after another by #Spain, violated!
1/5
This is the "Guide on Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Right to liberty and security".

I'm still reeling. This is worse. It has to do with "arbitrary detention" on which the #UN #WGAD issued a severe Opinion ... that Spain pissed on.

2/5
"188. The second limb of Article 5 §3 does not give judicial authorities a choice between either bringing an accused to trial within a reasonable time or granting him provisional release pending trial..."

@JosepBorrellF asks #Spain's Superior Court of Justice to close #Catalan delegations in London, Geneva & Berlin for "damaging Spain's image" based on documents intercepted by his toytown spy network and social media posts.

London

The delegation is accused of ''retweeting messages in favour of Gibraltar" and criticising Borrell's comment on us history: "they only had to kill a handful of Indians".

In this case, surely it was Borrell was "harming #Spain's image"?

London

Borrell's toytown diplomats found it "damaging to #Spain's image" that "there were barely 20 people" at an event with Parliament VP, @josepcosta: an Estelada on a table "looked like a coffin" and "people mocked it on social media"

Why @krls & @toni_comin must be allowed to take their seats in the @Europarl_EN
"The essential step to become an MEP is to receive enough support. #Catalans understood this and delivered massive majority support to @krls, @toni_comin, @ClaraPonsati, and the whole list"
@boye_g

"#Spain's #SupremeCourt should suspend the national arrest warrants against @krls & @toni_comin. Both now enjoy immunity that the Supreme can't interfere with. They must decide to respect the law or not, but the little credibility they still have in Europe is at risk."
@boye_g

2
Asked whether @krls & @toni_comin must swear to uphold the Constitution in person before #Spain's Central Electoral Board before taking office, @boye_g said the rule was out-of-date, against EU law, and, if the #SupremeCourt got involved in this battle, it would surely lose.
