War is hard. It’s horrific. It’s far from all those clean, climate-controlled offices and chart boards.
Everybody thinks the same thing: how to survive and possibly get a mission done. If you have been there, you know it.
Whether we like it or not, it is often far from those ideal rules written on paper. It’s a good idea to demand that combating sides respect the law of war and keep civilians safe. Unfortunately, very often, it’s easier said than done.
Not a single nation was ideal in terms of civilian safety in war. And Ukraine is not perfect. Because, again, fighting a war against one of the world’s largest militaries is much more complicated than lecturing someone from thousands of kilometers away from the battlefield.

Long thread 🧵on the Amnesty International issue and its controversial report on #Ukraine (English version) In June I was in #Mykolaiv, in the south of the country. Every day the Russians bombarded the neighbourhood where I was with artillery, missiles and cluster bombs 1-14
2 - (one exploded 300 metres from me). Then I moved 5 km away from the Russians and lived for about ten days in a place on the #Dnipro river. Same situation. constant Russian shelling on the village. The Ukrainian artillery was not in the village. It was far away.
3- In those days Amnesty contacted me on Fb to ask me about the situation. I gave them my Ukrainian phone number. Nothing. I contacted the person again, he read and didn't even reply. Then that report comes out. Totally decontextualised from the ongoing conflict

My thoughts on the @amnesty report on #Ukraine. These are my personal thoughts and not affiliated with any of the orgs I work for. They got the law wrong. Protocol 1 states militaries shall to the maximum extent feasible AVOID locating military objects near populated areas 1/
Ukraine can place forces in areas they are defending - especially in #urbanwarfare. There is no requirement to stand shoulder to shoulder in a field - this isn’t the 19th century. Ukraine still has an OBLIGATION to protect civilians - but they are taking steps to do so like 2/
helping civilians relocate. The info environment is complex but when I train Ukrainian #WarCrimes teams I always tell them they must investigate alleged violations of ALL parties to the conflict. 3/

Everybody cancel your donations to @Amnesty, the Putin cheerleaders and shills for Russian torture and genocide in Ukraine.
@amnesty ...and @Amnesty are such gross lickspittle Putin cheerleaders, they recently described @MOD_Russia tortures, gang-rapes and massacres in Ukraine as "an act of aggression". Not murder, not genocide, not crimes against humanity - just 'aggression'.
@amnesty @mod_russia That tweet wasn't a one-off. @Amnesty have an obvious policy to only call Russian genocide against Ukraine "an act of aggression". They use that word repeatedly and it's the *only* way they describe Putin's illegal invasion. See the proof for yourselves: twitter.com/search?q=from%…

#AmnestyInternational’s accusation that Israel is guilty of #apartheid is not antisemitic. Here’s why (a thread):
Are the report's authors motivated by antisemitism? There’s no reason to assume this. They’re not the only people to accuse Israel of apartheid. Palestinians have made this claim for many years, and recently some Israeli groups have as well. HRW also accused Israel of apartheid.
Surely they’re not all motivated by antisemitism?

1/ It was shocking at the time & remains so now that the Momentum "left" considered this a legitimate position People said at the time: "what else was she supposed to do?"
Not excuse #apartheid.
PPL who said so at the time were dismissed as "cranks."

2/ It's wrong to single out RLB, a decent person badly advised. Rather, it illustrates a broader problem on the soft left of British politics: a desire to be accepted by the establishment & mainstream media. Too often, positions are not taken for reasons of truth & accuracy...
3/ but to please institutions and organisations that will NEVER willingly accept a left wing Government. This led to the dumping of arguments that were not only defensible on grounds of basic fact but could have been used to advance progressive causes...

#AmnestyInternational gibt zahlreiche konkrete Empfehlungen, wie die israelischen Behörden das Apartheidsystem und die Diskriminierung, Segregation und Unterdrückung, die es aufrechterhalten, abbauen können. 1/ #Apartheid
Amnesty fordert, als ersten Schritt die Praxis der Häuserabrisse und rechtswidrigen Zwangsräumungen zu beenden. Die israelische Regierung muss allen Palästinenser*innen in Israel und den besetzten palästinensischen Gebieten im Einklang mit internationalen Menschenrechtsnormen 2/

Mentre mi trovavo nel carcere, un furgoncino ha portato all'interno dell'istituto un gruppo di bambini. Erano in condizioni penose e piangevano disperati. Le mani sporche all'inverosimile, i vestiti laceri e addosso gli oggetti utili per i lavori che stavano svolgendo.
Mi hanno spiegato che si tratta di bambini di strada che vengono prelevati e portati in prigione dai talebani. Le guardie mi hanno assicurato che si tratta solo di controlli necessari all'identificazione e alla restituzione alle rispettive famiglie.
A ogni modo, mi ha colpito e preoccupato molto vederli dentro un istituto penitenziario.

Fino ad agosto, nella prigione di Kandahar erano detenuti centinaia di terroristi talebani. Col cambio di regime, la situazione si è capovolta.
Abbiamo ottenuto un permesso speciale per visitare le celle che ospitano i detenuti e la visita è stata sconvolgente.
Questo carcere ospita prigionieri politici, ex militari del vecchio esercito ma soprattutto tossicodipendenti e omosessuali.
Di 1800 detenuti, 1400 sono persone con problemi di droga ed uno dei primi atti dei talebani è stato proprio quello di rastrellarli e rinchiuderli dentro.
Stessa sorte per i gay e queste immagini documentano il settore adibito a queste due fattispecie.
Le persone sono ammassate in corridoi angusti e bui. Non c'è luce, non c'è alcuna dignità per questi esseri umani. Le celle sono sporche oltre ogni immaginazione.

Each morning I come onto @Twitter I pray there is some kind of @Hopeforjustice for #AmbroseGGBall.

But instead to witness @DavidLammy posting the most #sadistic #Facebook post to date knowing how he has treated the mother of murdered @forambrose1984 leaving her with a body in
@haringeycouncil without a single word from @NCLCCG_Haringey or #AndrewWalker since last June 2020.

#Amnestyinternational has had a rather dubious role in #India. It's funding & activities have been repeatedly questioned by both UPA & NDA governments. Former PM Manmohan Singh had red flagged the NGO during #KudanKulam nuke plant issue. In fact in Feb 2014 UPA froze it's funding
In 2009 #Amnestyinternational had #FCRA issues. Even under NDA rule Amnesty funding remained rather opaque. @dir_ed probed dubious fund flow pattern. RBI put Amnesty in prior permission category due to suspect funds flow, acc to the #Govt. Even during UPA funding was suspect: BJP
MHA had #Amnestyinternational funding looked into & concluded that Human Rights cannot be an excuse for defying the law of the land.MHA said in order to circumvent the FCRA regulations Amnesty UK remitted large amounts of money to 4 entities registered in India classifying it FDI

On p 5 of @Amnesty report alleging @Axum massacre, it says ““This briefing is based on 11 days of research by Amnesty International at the refugee reception center in Hamdayet, eastern Sudan, in January 2021, as well as on numerous phone interviews with witnesses in Axum”.
Those are the words in the @amnesty report, not mine. So here are the conclusions we can make from that statement: First, no personnel or “investigators” from @Amnesty visited or saw first hand the city of Axum either shortly after the alleged 28-29 November “massacre” NOR
did they visit the “crime scene” before writing their report! They based an accusation of a massacre in one of the world’s holiest Christian cities on phone interviews! Not one photo, video, copy of text message, phone records of people calling for help or to report the incident.

After the war broke out in #Tigray, many international media are reporting that more than 950,000 #Tigrayans are believed to be displaced. But what is the root cause of the ethnic Tigrayan migration across the borders? (1/9)
For over a few weeks now, we are collecting incredible facts from the relatives, eye witness, and testimonies on the ground to reflect exactly what happened. The #UN statement which was issued a few days ago reflects part of the concern. (2/9)
But in reality, it is clear that something serious has happened to these people from the western part of Tigray to cross the #Sudan border and save their lives. Sudan's border was opened over the previous years but nobody from Tigray, not at least in this magnitude, has (3/9)
