Bugünkü yazımda Güney Afrika'da Apartheid Rejiminden kalan ilginç bir şehri, Orania'yı kaleme aldım.

Orania, Afrikaner halkının 1963 yılında özgür bir devlet kurma niyetiyle inşaa ettiği ve Afrikaner halkından olmayan kimsenin yaşamasına müsade edilmeyen bir yerleşim yeridir. +1
Afrikaner halkı Güney Afrika’ya 1652'de gelen Hollandalı Kaptan Riebeeck’in torunlarıdır. Boer diye de hitap edilen halk, geleneksel tarım ve hayvancılıkla 1795 yılı İngiliz işgaline kadar ülkeyi imar ettiler.

En son 1902 Boer Harbinde İngilizlere yenilince siyasete başladılar+2
İsmini Oranj nehrinden alan Orania, Apartheid'in ayrımcılık uygulamalarını hatırlatan yasalara sahip.

Şehrin girişine konulan “Hiers nie plek vir sissies” pankartında efemine erkeklerin giremeyeceği yazɪlarak eşcinsel Afrikanerlara bile izin vermediklerini ifade ediyor+3

This @nytimes headline is trash. It should read, “Israel criminalizes resistance to apartheid and abuses its full control over Palestinian life to punish them further” nytimes.com/2020/05/09/wor… #Thread #Palestinian #Freedom #Prisoners
As a settler colony, Israel has criminalized Palestinian life- you can go to jail 4 crossing the wrong street, driving on the wrong road, having a political thought, living w ur fam, farming on your land, doing nothing at all under administrative detention. Your crime is to exist
Since 1967, #Israel has imprisoned 20% of the Palestinian population, & 40% of all men. Prison is a feature of Palestinian life and that is a reflection of a colonial reality. #prisoners #Palestinian #freedom

Thread: Achille #Mbembe wird vorgeworfen, er sagte #Israel sei „schlimmer“ als #Apartheid-Südafrika. Das hat er so nicht gesagt – aber egal. Schauen wir mal, ob diese Aussage stimmt. (1)
Bei seinem Vergleich Israel-Südafrika geht es Mbembe zuerst um die Auswirkungen des Verbrechens (Apartheid oder Besatzung) auf die betroffene Bevölkerung (Schwarze Südafrikaner und Palästinenser_innen) – und NICHT um die Intentionen der Verbrecher. (2)
Die absolute Zahl von palästinensischen Gewaltopfern, die durch Israel/is in den besetzten Gebieten seit 67 getötet wurden (ca. 14,000), oder die Zahl der politischen Gefangenen in der Zeit (ca. 700,000) ist deutlich höher als die Zahlen aus Südafrika zwischen 1948 und 1990. (3)

1 La doctrina del fascismo sudafricano es:
"El desarrollo separado de los pueblos"
Por eso; fronteras étnicas y Apartheid lingüisticos.
Vasquistas Catalanistas Galleguistas tratan de imponer esa doctrina en España
Y la #Izquierda_Indefinida Aplaudiendo

2 Muchos creen que el Apartheid es una cosa de "Blancos contra Negros"
!!NO!!. El Apartheid es el resultado de convertir en doctrina las relaciones tribales de Africa ...
En Sudafrica los Bantustanes separaban las diferentes étnias negras entre si Image
3 Para entender esa doctrina tribal es recomendable el libro de Alfonso Rojo "La odisea de la tribu blanca"

The Official *You Are Full of Shit when you say you're #antiZionist but not an #AntiSemite* Thread!

An antiSemite hates #Jews.
An antiZionist hates #Jewish Independence.
It's the same black ink in different concentrations!
An anti-Zionist is someone who believes that the Jewish state and ONLY the Jewish state is illegitimate.

Therefore ONLY Jews have no right to a Homeland or to national self-determination.
And that murdering Jews — and ONLY Jews — in terrorist attacks with the goal of eliminating the Jewish state is “resistance” and “freedom fighting”.

This is simply another way of saying they believe Jews should be killed and expelled, which OF COURSE is antiSemitism.

Remember when #Republicans #seceded from the #Union to defend the @PeculiarInstitution of #Slavery?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans created the #KKK as an armed force of masked #terrorists to #murder newly #freedslaves and government officials that protected them?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans enacted #apartheid in America through so-called #JimCrow laws?

Neither do I.

My book tracks across #Brazil, #Angola, #Mauritius, #Portugal, #SA, the #USA . It is political. It is about change. It is about beauty in Angola and writing through whiteness (3/16). @StanfordAnthro @UCT_news

By the time I left school, #Apartheid was truly entrenched, deeply buried in the psyche of white South Africans. At school, I was taught the white man's history, his conquests & victories. I knew nothing else; nothing about the people who made up most of the country's population.
Black people were erased from everyday society. They were shadows; ghosts that disappeared at night and magically reappeared in our kitchens in the morning to raise white people's children. I didn't know why there were separate toilets and park benches. It was 'normal'.
I knew nothing about the people who built our roads, harbours, airports, shopping malls and our houses. Nothing about the men who spilt their sweat and blood and the women on their knees, cleaning toilets. But I was reminded of a certain 'terrorist' by the name of Mandela.

@aka19a @EdwardGLuce @RMantri @Cold_Peace_ @gideonrachman @FT @TheJaggi @madhukishwar @vinod_bansal @ChowkidarAjay1 @bvsmanyam1 @FT @gideonrachman states that NRC targets muslims(i.e. economic migrants) but in reality it targets bengali-hindus who are victim of religious persecution in Bangladesh. NRC operates under india's #antiHindu system:-
@aka19a @EdwardGLuce @RMantri @Cold_Peace_ @gideonrachman @FT @TheJaggi @madhukishwar @vinod_bansal @ChowkidarAjay1 @bvsmanyam1 1)India's #antiHindu constitution provides legal authority to issue doc to Ch-mosque(but not hindu temple). Mosque doc can be used to obtain passport.
2)Modi govt has history of castigating & transferring passport officer who questioned diff 1st name in mosque issued doc.
@aka19a @EdwardGLuce @RMantri @Cold_Peace_ @gideonrachman @FT @TheJaggi @madhukishwar @vinod_bansal @ChowkidarAjay1 @bvsmanyam1 3) NRC officers question & reject citizenship doc submitted by Hindu(but don't question mosque issued doc otherwise modi's foreign minister will personally intervene & transfer you).

Thus, 60% to 70% detainees in NRC camp are Hindus: sringeribelur.wordpress.com/the-lesser-hin…

So Joburg was rebuilt 4/5😳 times in 120 years❓🤔Hmmm. Where’s the landfill site for ALL that rubble then❓
I mean, historic mine slimes dams are in clear sight, if you follow main reef road through the city. Where have they buried the remains of ALL those old bldgs❓🤷🏻‍♀️Lawless❓
Real business folk; it make sense to you that the (exceptional) OLD Carlton Hotel on Eloff Street was torn down (TOOK A YEAR❗️😳) around a decade BEFORE they built the new one down the road❓Which is now owned by a SOE (asset sheet🤔) & has been abandoned & empty for past 20yrs❓
Come to think of it; #StolenHistory armchair archeologists - if there’s at least the rubble of another WHOLE city, out there, but who knows buried where❓🤔Then what of the speed of change in this city, mense😳; and the why❓Or is it so we won’t notice that ...

1/a friend suggested that it's the silent Israelis who promote apartheid by not standing up to Zionism. i strongly disagree with that. #apartheid is mainly promoted & protected by those who are far from being silent - they're in fact very vocal about their limited and irrelevant
2/criticism of the Zionist state - criticism which is part and parcel of a sinister discourse of lies whose sole purpose is misinformation and diversion - a discourse that serves to create a made-up reality as if there are 2 separate entities called "Israel" and "Palestine";
3/as if there is anything OTHER THAN apartheid and supremacy at the foundation of the Zionist race-state; as if the occupation is 50 some years old; as if apartheid needs to be tweaked rather than abolished;

Since these false accusations are regurgitated ad-nauseum here, use this #Thread to counter accusations of #Apartheid, and reply to tantrum tossing lifelong losers who squeal that the world should #Boycott, #Sanction and #Divest from #Israel #BDS
An attempt to disguise hatred and propaganda with a facade of humanitarian concern is quite apparent for all to see. As stated on many occasions if you're looking for apartheid in The Middle East and accuse Israel you have the wrong address!
In #Israel #Arabs have more rights that they would have anywhere else in the region, and every poll result shows they consistently prefer to remain in Israel rather than live in a future #Palestinian state.

I believe that your blood group (an “unstudied” science) can also identify your race. (Not absolute. All that body in-breeding over generations.)

Oh, that “Annunaki” conspiracy theory, Ja; to throw the still clearer thinkers off this trail❓ (Ditto DNA)
So that no one even much notices, that even the Bible identifies Ab-RA-ham as being from Ur: a SUMERIAN❗️ (Doesn’t much fit that ENKI / ENLIL, story, there, does it❓🤔)
I also, don’t really believe in anyone called “Hathor.” So what does that say about the interpretation of all those “hieroglyphics” and finds like the “Rosetta stone❓”
#OccamsRazor: if they stole so much of the other history ...❓🤔

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
