Incoming #EU High Rep @JosepBorrellF’s first speech gave us a glimpse of #EUdiplomacy’s next 5 years. #EPhearings2019

His endorsement by the Parliament was never in doubt. Still, Borrell’s energetic speech went further than expected.

👇THREAD:

twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
2/ Borrell shared views with his trademark outspoken tone and all the famed sides of his character:

☞ The mature #EU integration enthusiast and former European Parliament President

☞ The responsible internationalist development buff

☞ The assertive Spanish foreign minister
3/ Borrell raised a shield in defence of the rule-based multilateral order, pointing to Ukraine as evidence of the dangers ahead if it keeps unraveling.

The sub-text: ‘I am not just talking about Moscow being unilateral, Mr Trump’.

Globally there are more than 65 million displaced people/ #refugees. A vast majority of these are feeing wars, conflicts and gross human rights abuses. Most of the refugees are hosted by countries outside Europe. /1
#Oughterard #DirectProvision #Ireland
Some refugee hosting nations are among the poorer countries. #Turkey #Lebanon #Bangladesh #Jordan #Egypt #Sudan #Pakistan #Uganda #Iran #Ethiopia host majority of the global #refugees /2
When someone is fleeing war or torture or human rights abuses, the first and foremost duty of humanity is to open our doors to refugees. No good to let people die at our doorsteps while we discuss where and how #AsylumSeekers should be hosted.

Modern Sudan and #AncientNubia: a thread
Sudanese writer #TayebSalih's depictions of early C20th village life in #Sudan are striking. Pay attention to this frag from The Doum Tree of Wad Hamid. Look at the v aggressive flies. They were military symbols in #Kerma for a reason 1/4
In New Kingdom #Egypt, Nubians were usually depicted in tombs wearing fly pendants, such as in the tomb of vizier Rekhmire (TT100). In this period, the golden fly symbol became an important military honour given to high officials and members of the elite, such as queen Ahotep 2/4
In the New Kingdom, Egyptians not only colonised Nubia introducing political and cultural change. They were also influenced by Nubia, from which they picked various cultural traits. Flies are just one more symbol of the #Nubianisation of ancient Egyptian culture in the NK 3/4

It’s happening, anti-Sisi protests in Egypt. May not spiral but a lot is happening these days, and this does seem like the beginning of a new phase.
“Rise up, fear not, Sisi must go.”

Ive serious worries about the RSF providing public services. Firstly from a PR point of view its disastrously effective. Not only does it help whitewash their image it undermines critical voices to them, because predictably we’ll oppose the growth of the RSF (1/3)
#SudanUprising
Now to a lot in Sudan, particularly in rural areas this looks like we don’t want to the RSF to provide services like healthcare etc.This simultaneously improves the image of the RSF while damaging the image of its critics. Many won’t won’t understand why we oppose
#SudanUprising
The RSF isn’t providing these services in addition to legitimate state institutions its is providing them instead of them, weakening their image & effectiveness of while simultaneously strengthening its own. This is a slow attempt to erode the state from within

Hamdok - "There have been great understandings with the U.S. administration about removing Sudan from the list of state sponsors of terrorism and we have made significant progress,"...

sudantribune.com/spip.php?artic…
Hamdok - "We are expecting a big breakthrough that will lead to removing Sudan from the terror list,"..."It is a convenient circumstance.”

Is North #Sudan STILL NOT going to remain on the US’ Terror List for these IMPORTANT REASONS? i.e.

1. The MILITARY are STILL IN CONTROL.
2. The Bashir-NCP deep-state & the RSF are STILL FULLY ACTIVE.

After a peaceful transition of power to full-civilian-rule in 39 months, surely REMOVAL WOULD ONLY THEN BE PRUDENT?!

Please be vigilant for the sakes of the People of North Sudan, US Congresspersons and US Senators.

With a state of emergecy declared in #PortSudan, the security situation on #Sudan’s eastern coast presents an opportunity for Himedti and the Rapid Support Forces to increase their domestic and international power.

#SudanUprising #KeepEyesOnSudan
In the video, a Bani Amer tribal leader issues a call to join Himedti’s Rapid Support Forces. In Port Sudan, the Bani Amer and Nuba tribes tribes are grippled in a deadly conflict.

As Jerome Tubiana warned back in July, Himedti is poised to build up a support base in Sudan’s peripheries, to compensate for his lack of support in Khartoum.

I welcome the swearing-in today of Abdalla Hamdok to be prime minister of #Sudan’s transitional government, and I congratulate the Sudanese people on this milestone as they work to establish a civilian-led transitional government.
mcgovern.house.gov/news/documents…
I hope the Constitutional Declaration leads to the formation of a government that – after decades of struggle, suffering and sacrifice – guarantees peace throughout Sudan, human rights, justice, full political participation, and a better future for Sudan's families and children.
I also support justice for the crimes committed by the Bashir regime – not just for widespread and endemic corruption, but for gross human rights abuses, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide carried out against the people of Darfur and the Sudanese people.

There are some surprises and much that was expected in the final version of Sudan's constitutional declaration. @Int_IDEA and @ConstitutionNet will be publishing a translation shortly. I'll be tweeting out contents as soon as im allowed to do so. @SumitBisarya @AdamAbebe
@Int_IDEA @ConstitutionNet @SumitBisarya @AdamAbebe I've just been told that the version of #Sudan's constitutional declaration that i have is public, so i will be tweeting out its contents starting in a few minutes. Watch this space. #SudanRevolts
@Int_IDEA @ConstitutionNet @SumitBisarya @AdamAbebe ok here we go. quick comment on context: Sudanese negotiators already agreed a short "political agreement" a few weeks ago. the constitutional declaration is supposed to be a legally enforceable, fully fleshed out document that will guide all aspects of the transition.

#UndocumentedNL
I'm from Ad-Damazin (Blue Nile, Sudan). I'm 7470 km away from my family. This distance is stretched by the difficulties of life here in Amsterdam. Let me explain some of the very hard realities we deal with as #Sudanese undocumented refugees in Holland. Thread:
2. The Hague has a Sudan embassy. Know why we don't protest there every week to be in solidarity with protests in Sudan? Because embassy people threaten us. They say they'll hurt or kill our families in Sudan if we don't stop. They know undocumented people don't go to the police.
3. If we go to the police, there is a risk we will be arrested. Why? Because we are illegalized. When we go to the Dutch police to say the people of our embassy threaten us, they can arrest us and take us to asylum prison. @amnestynl wrote about Dutch refugee prisons before.

FFC discloses the “Plan B” efforts of the Bashir-NCP Deep State, meant to derail the #Sudan Revolution.

*Statement from The Field Action Committee of the FFC on the attempts of the former regime & their shadow battalions to drag the country into a cycle of violence.”*
“The efforts of the former regime & its shadow battalions to infiltrate the groups of revolutionaries; & to plant some members of the former regime into their midst. The Committee also learned from its sources that the regime had distributed firearms to some of these groups.”

Big news from the latest @UN report on #ISIS/#alQaida was ISIS' rebuild strategy and that much of it is being directed by Abu Bakr al-#Baghdadi out of Iraq

But there are a number of other interesting observations in the report...
On #alQaida, the @UN intelligence suggests the group although the health of AQ leader Ayman al-Zawahiri & AQ's succession plan "are in doubt"
The @UN report also concludes #alQaida-aligned groups "are stronger than their #ISIL [#ISIS] counterparts in #Idlib, #Syria|n Arab Republic, #Yemen, #Somalia and much of West #Africa"

With just this quote on the “negotiation process”, Malik Agar may have lost some “informed & trusted credibility” that they have accumulated for his SPLM-N faction over the past few days & weeks of their talks with the SPA & the other “non-armed members” of the FFC....
...Of course, he was PERSONALLY always going to be “asked by someone in Juba” to “return that favour” given to him wrt the TMC’s detention of his 3 SPLM-N “comrades” in Khartoum...comrades who were then deported back to Juba at “the request” of Pres. Salva Kiir; & who have now...

Thread on what the new deal means on Sudan’s suspension from AU 1) this is a positive development, to which the PSC decision contributed by lending support to the demand for a civilian led transition. @AUC_MoussaFaki welcomed it au.int/en/pressreleas…
2) Following the lapse of the 60-day period for transferring power to a civilian authority on 30 June and the massive protest events of that day, the PSC was on the spotlight again on whether it should take further actions. The deal removes such pressure off the PSC.
3) In terms of the 6 June PSC decision suspending Sudan, the deal on its own is unlikely to lead to the lifting of the suspension. This is so based on past practice on unconstitutional changes of government and specific terms of the AUPSC decision, actual transfer of power.

So what exactly are the details of the agreement that’s been made between the Opposition “Forces of Freedom & Change” (FFC) and the “Transitional Military Council” (TMC) in #Sudan?

How did it happen? What guarantees are there that the TMC (& the FFC) will honour the agreement?

Dr. Amjad Farid of the SPA & the FFC, answers:

Burhan probably went to Uganda at this critical time for the TMC, including skipping the final negotiations with the FFC towards a Civilian-led agreement, to try & “learn just how Museveni has managed to stay in power in Uganda for over 3 decades; without having to hand over...
...power to civilians?”
Something that Museveni has managed to do for some of his rule since 1985, with International Community “military support” from even the USA?”

Short Answer - Museveni did it largely by creating “a distracting artificial threat of insecurity” in certain..
...parts of Uganda. He then perpetuated & ratcheted-up that threat “whenever it was needed”; by using the “name” (& the mystique) of an alleged “warlord” called Joseph Kony. Someone who then became labelled as “a terrorist” in more modern-day parlance.
