Quello che sta accadendo in #Algeria è epocale. Una mobilitazione che dura ormai da 9 mesi,con pochi precedenti nella storia per durata,costanza e partecipazione, si avvicina all'appuntamento cruciale: quello delle elezioni truccate organizzate dal governo in carica >
illegalmente ormai da luglio. Le elezioni servono al governo dei militari (che nei fatti governano il paese fin dal golpe subito successivo all'indipendenza) per rifarsi una parvenza di legittimità con i paesi occidentali e del Golfo, grandi partner commerciali. >
> Tra questi paesi, zitti zitti, ci siamo noi. L'Eni ha pagato 200 MILIONI DI $ di tangenti ai politici algerini. Il processo si è svolto a Milano, nell'incredibile silenzio dei nostri media (in Algeria invece se n'è parlato eccome). milano.corriere.it/notizie/cronac…

Remembering the Jewish refugees from #Syria and the immense suffering which Syria has never made amends for.

I made these images several years ago. Still, years later, not one country has made amends. Today on Memorial Day, we remember. #JewishRefugees
Remembering the Jewish refugees from #Tunisia and the suffering which Tunisia has never made amends for.

Today on Memorial Day for the Jewish refugees from Arab countries, we remember. #JewishRefugees
Remembering the Jewish refugees from #Yemen and the suffering which Yemen has never made amends for. Arab states ethnically cleansed their Jews - yet the world is silent.

Today on Memorial Day for the Jewish refugees from Arab countries, we remember. #JewishRefugees

"There are few greater gifts we can give future generations than to eradicate a disease. We ourselves know what that’s like. #Smallpox was only officially declared eradicated in 1980 – less than 40 years ago. And yet already, it is becoming a distant memory"-@DrTedros #RLMForum
"Every year, over 1 billion people are treated for a neglected tropical disease, & last year 8 countries eliminated at least one NTD.
In the mid-1980s there were almost 3.5M cases of guinea-worm in 20 countries. Last year, there were only 28 cases, in just 3 countries"-@DrTedros
"Onchocerciasis has been eliminated in 4 countries in @pahowho;
Lymphatic filariasis has been eliminated in 16 countries;
Trachoma has been eliminated in 9 countries;
The annual number of sleeping sickness cases has fallen from over 7k in 2012 to less than 1k in 2018"-@DrTedros

Mercury will pass between Earth & Sun on afternoon, 11 Nov 2019 Monday. Most of #MercuryTransit2019 can be seen from all of Africa, till local sunset. @SKA_Africa @SAAOOutreach @AfricaAstronomy @Astro4Dev & others are coordinating a Africa-wide campaign for #ToM2019 #ToMAfrica
It is VERY dangerous to look at the Sun directly using telescope binoculars or naked eyes. Looking at Sun's image projected onto a sheet of paper by a telescope is safe. There r a few public events by science centres etc in Africa where u can see #ToM2019 safely (pic @samyukta_m)
An interactive map of public events in Africa for #ToMAfrica, transit timings, a free handbook on #ToM2019, posters, and a podcast on #MercuryTransit2019 are at africanastronomicalsociety.org/activities/tra…, sarao.ac.za/transit-of-mer… and transit2019.saao.ac.za

[#Thread] Welcome to night of the long threads part two, this one's on #Algeria. A few of you got in touch (@fatenaggad & @OpenAlgeriaOrg) to ask about the trend #كلنا_زغماتي , which translates as "we are all Zeghmati". Belkacem Zeghmati was appointed Attorney general earlier
2/ this year. However, Zeghmati is at odds with the country's judges after they went on strike after a huge reshuffle. The strike threatens the #December12 elections in Algeria, which are being opposed by the opposition who believe it will just lead to the continuation of an
3/ elite junta. So essentially, the hashtag "we are all Zeghmati" is seen as supporting the status quo, a quasi military government that doesn't represent the democratic demands by many Algerians. Anyway, next up is the analysis, which will add to a great one by @AymeneZermane

[Thread on #Algerie] 1/ Many of you will have read my last thread on two hashtags. One of the hashtags, #الجزاير_تنتخب (Algeria votes), is trending today with around 11.6k tweets. I have done an analysis this morning to see if there has been any change and yes, there has....
2/ The hashtag has been argued by some as a malicious tactic to divide opposition by encouraging people to vote in the elite-led elections in December. In the last thread I found a large proportion of accounts (12%) on both hashtags were created September 2019, with 8%
3/ being created in the space of just two days - 22nd and 23rd September. In today's analysis I looked at 5,244 unique accounts. In this sample, which include a number of the accounts mentioned previously, the number of suspicious accounts has increased again...

[#Thread on #Algeria] 1/ @Redasbox got in touch to ask if I could have a look at some unusual tweeting in Algeria. I analysed around 20,000 tweets from around 5,769 unique accounts. What I found, was alarming, and clear evidence of a disinformation campaign. Read on #Algerie
@Redasbox 2/ First some very brief context. Algeria has seen the 32nd weekend of pro-democracy demonstrations. Peaceful protests successfully pressured Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the ruler of 20 years, to step down in April. An election has been called for on December 12th to help try and
3/ resolve the political stalemate in Algeria. However, many Algerians are not happy as they believe the elections will be rigged by a military/elite junta. This is not uncommon in MENA. Thus the elections are seen as giving democratic legitimacy to continued authoritarian rule

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.”
Reports of protests in Cairo, Alexandria, and now Suez

Amid the ongoing conflict in NW #Syria, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (#HTS) continues to evolve in intriguing ways - into a more politically mature & intelligent jihadist movement.

It's current leadership clearly seeks to position itself somewhere between #MuslimBrotherhood & #AlQaeda.
There's now little question that #HTS no longer represents #AlQaeda.

It's clearly still an extremist movement, but signs continue to add up indicating that it's developing into something qualitatively different than the Jabhat al-Nusra of 2014-15 - a "Shami #Taliban," perhaps.
Most recently in the public space, #HTS issued a statement acknowledging its willingness to abide by an externally-negotiated (by #Turkey, #Iran & #Russia) ceasefire.

That was a first.

Its never happened before in #Syria & it's not a move any #AlQaeda affiliate would ever take.

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 the powerful mass movement for democracy & accountability in #Algeria/#Algerie reaching a turning point in next 2 days, 7 diverse Algerian personalities launched this video appeal for unity & real dialog: (Thread) tsa-algerie.com/lappel-de-pers…
Of note (& sad), that the good news site TSA that carried this has been banned in #Algeria. But it is on FB & other platforms so it should get wide distribution? It's issued in the name of "Agreement for the sake of protecting the homeland"
The seven people who signed the Agreement are standing together and take turns reading short sections of it. This one just says: "Appeal to the Algerian people"

Like announced, I'll start a thread on the symbolism of the (in)famous black & white banner in #Islam. This comprehensive thread will explore its historical origins and cover a list of its contemporary users from a neutral #academic point of view. Not for the faint of heart. 😄
As a political leader & head of a growing religious community, the #prophet Muḥammad used to fly a banner (liwāʾ) and a flag (rāya). The difference? According to the #dictionary, a banner is "a long piece of cloth" while a flag is "a piece of cloth that represents a group."
The Companion Ibn al-ʿArabī was quoted in Fatḥ al-Bārī (6/147) as saying: "A banner is what is tied to the side of a spear to rally around, while a flag is that which is planted and left to be waved by the wind."

MYTH: It’s an ugly misconception that Jews and Arabs lived in peace before 1948.

REALITY: Jews have faced racism and discrimination for centuries in Arab countries.

This poster I made, 1 of 9, tells the story of Jewish persecution in #Yemen in the 20th century.

Can't believe my eyes seeing de Tocqueville quoted re: prospects of democratic transition in #Algeria. The guy literally wrote memos in support of French brutal torture system in #Algeria. It's already a violence that he became the democracy theorist in the US but this is a farce
On #epistemic violences and theorizing from the #GlobalSouth, think about how Alexis de Tocqueville, before becoming the father figure of democracy in the U.S. was a war-strategist for colonial #France in #Algeria. I'll throw in a few bonus quotes from his "Essay on #Algeria":
#Tocqueville wrote in 1841 "The most effective means we can use to subjugate the tribes is the interdiction of commerce” - speaking here about #Algerians around the Ottoman Empire's fall and the invasion of #France.
