What an incredible message, @BTS_twt. They have brought so much inspiration and optimism to the world through music, dance, and public address, and this #UNGA speech and performance was no different. Absolutely loved that they delivered this as a collective speech and +
how they took this as an opportunity to redefine our conception of young people at this moment: today's youth are not a "lost generation" but a "welcome generation." Sharing the stories and images from responses to their #YouthToday #YourStories invitation/prompt+
was also a powerful way to deliver this collective message. And to top it all off with #PermissiontoDance, a song with a music video and message all about inclusivity, diversity, hope, and joy, was just perfect!

The world has made significant progress but #HIV is far from over. In 2020, there were:
🚨 37.6 million people living with HIV
🚨 690000 AIDS-related deaths
🚨 1.5 million new infections

Despite the challenges of #COVID19, the #UNGA 🇺🇳 High-Level Meeting offers us a chance to end #AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.
Over the past 4 decades more than
7⃣7⃣ million people have been infected with #HIV
3⃣5⃣ million people have died from #AIDS
This #UNGA 🇺🇳 High-Level Meeting must ensure the effective prevention tools we have are used as widely as possible. 👉

The future does not belong to globalists.

The future belongs to patriots.

The future belongs to sovereign & independent nations who protect their citizens & honor the differences that make each country special & unique.

— President Trump, #UNGA

If you want freedom, take pride in your country.

If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty.

And if you want peace, love your nation.

Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their own country first.

#UNGA convenes today to discuss the situation in the M.E, BUT another UN meeting won't contribute to de-escalation & is counterproductive.

However it's an opportunity for @UN members to condemn Hamas indiscriminate rocket fire & acknowledge Israel's right to defend its citizens.
The full responsibility for this escalation and for those harmed on both sides falls entirely on Hamas and the other terrorist organizations operating in #Gaza.

Since 10 May 2021, more than 4,000 rockets have been launched from the #Gaza Strip towards Israel, directed at civilian population centers throughout the country including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ashkelon and Ashdod, killing 12 and injuring hundreds.

📽️@UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to #Food, @MichaelFakhri, delivers a special video message ahead of our #CFS47 side event tomorrow:

💡 Global Response to #COVID19 #Hunger Crisis: Developing Effective Policy Responses through the @UN_CFS [🧵thread]

"COVID19 has not only been a public health crisis, but it has also generated a hunger crisis. The virus is new, but it has been predictably harshest on marginalised people. In fact, the world was falling behind on realising the right to food even before the current pandemic." /2
"Even with new vaccines, it will be some time before the global #health situation stabilises & it will be at least a decade before the world recovers economically. Meanwhile, Member States and international orgs have not yet come together to tackle the looming hunger crisis." /3

When will all 34 member countries, 1 liason country and 7 observer countries of the IHRA…
Bring a motion to the #UNGA to adopt it's definition?
Israel has diplomatic relations with 164 out of 192 members of the UNGA yet not one of these countries has brought such a proposal to the UNGA.
The UNGA is infamous for its disproportionate singling out of Israel, how can we as a country keep on accepting this most blatant form of Antisemitism?
If IHRA & countries that have diplomatic relations with Israel are unable/unwilling to do so Israel should to reconsider:

1. Many #Zimbabweans think 2008 situation in #Zimbabwe was unique n this has been largely due to the fact that we are so insular n so polarized we look at things in terms of @ZANUPF_Official n @mdczimbabwe. Bt 2008 there was a Global Financial Meltdown.
2. In First World Countries, Governments had to step in to save Financial Institutions from collapse m folding up. There was a Financial Crisis across the World. #Zimbabwe as a country already under sanctions was severely affected coz it had no external credit lines.
3. The ZWD as it was then, was deliberately shorted...yes, attacked deliberately. Many will doubt this but there is precedence to it you know. George Soros once shorted the British Pound itself. Its a deliberate position adapted in the Money Market.

"The impacts [of #COVID19] go far beyond the disease itself, with disastrous consequences for health systems, and services for immunization, nutrition, family planning and more.

And yet none of this should come as a surprise"-@DrTedros #UNGA
"Over the years we have had many reports, reviews and recommendations all saying the same thing: the world is not prepared for a pandemic.

#COVID19 has laid bare the truth: when the time came, the world was still not ready"-@DrTedros #UNGA

Bisht has bitten off more than he can chew. It is time for the Congress to muster its full on-ground presence. Each time you let Bisht get away with his totalitarianism, you help him set a higher baseline. Normalise his dictatorial tendencies.

No more.

Push Back.
Where are Mayawati and Akhilesh? Counting their millions in some quiet corner? This is the time for some good old street politics, count your millions later!

If your rears r still parked on some plush sofa somewhere, then you r are not worthy of being called leaders of any party
If you can not mobilise a full-fledged mass political agitation on the ground now, that shakes the foundations of the regime, then I am afraid, you are not Opposition parties but just actors in this theatre of the absurd where BJP has prime role and you all play your bit roles.

♦️ #Pakistan in Deep Soup ♦️

PM Imran Khan lately was seen supporting #Azerbaijan over its conflict with #Armenia. He has been ranting the Kashmir issue at the #UNGA.The same leader was also seen defending his country in the latest #FATF meeting.

#ImranFailsPakistanAgain Image
But before going global, he should focus on what's local. #Pakistan speaks about human-rights abuses in #Kashmir, but seeing the Shia genocide, the forceful conversion of minorities to Islam & its brutality in #Balochistan & #GilgitBaltistan.

#balochistanisburning Image
No one in the world takes #Pakistan seriously. After all, one has to fix his own house first before pointing fingers at others. How long the deep state of Pakistan will keep the masses hostage to the delusional state of mind & failed narratives of foreign policy.

Today @eucopresident will give his third keynote speech on "strategic autonomy" in as many weeks. EU leaders will likely declare that strategic autonomy is a "key objective" of the Union. But what do these Greek-derived words mean? Our newsletter today👇…
Judging from the draft of the summit’s conclusions, strategic autonomy means, first of all, relative autarky (here’s another Greek word) in certain sensitive industries. Here’s more from our Supply Lines trade newsletter last week:…
This protectionist push may seem weird. In his #UNGA speech, Michel explained that it’s partly a reaction to a world where might makes right and in which rules aren’t respected. It’s what has been described in International Relations as (last Greek word) kraterocracy: Image
