Aug 2021: The #pandemic response as contemporary #imperialism

"Progressives often engage in leftist rhetoric, but their proposals always result in strengthening & expanding the existing, inequitable system & further entrenching the current, elite class."

"The assumption of infallibility & the feeling of entitlement to play God w/ someone else’s health is pure #colonization of other human beings... that someone else’s personal choices about his/her own life should be subordinate to your beliefs is the essence of #imperialism."
"It is an expectation that one can & should dominate others. Such a person is carrying on the storied legacy of the numerous imperialists before them... these people are this era’s imperialist #oppressors, though of course, like all imperialists, they see themselves as #heroes."

#Ethiopia’s government claims that the war against the TPLF ended last November.

But fighting continues in #Tigray - and civilians bear the brunt of a brutal conflict marked by #atrocities and displacement.

New briefing ⇊
bit.ly/AfricaB171
The crisis risks evolving into a protracted conflict as:
➢ Eritrean forces are yet to fully withdraw from the region
➢ Tigrayan leaders consolidate their position in rural areas
➢ President @AbiyAhmedAli remains determined to keep #Tigray’s ousted leadership away from power
It is vital that both Tigrayan and government forces consider halting the fighting to facilitate access to humanitarian aid.

This practical first step would help reduce civilian suffering and could even pave the way for a return to dialogue.

After a peaceful pro-#independence demonstration in #Paris on #17October1961,up to 300 #Algerians were murdered by police. Historians described this #massacre as “the bloodiest act of state repression of street protest in western Europe in modern history”.
theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
The most memorable – and vicious – #atrocities saw #policemen herding panicking crowds on to #Paris's bridges, where many were tossed into the #Seine. The river became a watery morgue for scores of victims, whose lifeless bodies were washing up for weeks. #17Octobre1961 #Algeria
Others died in #police stations, or in nearby woods, where their #mutilated bodies testified to truncheon and rifle-butt injuries. The officers had been incensed by an illegal protest by 30,000 men, women and children organised by the National #Liberation Front (FLN) of #Algeria.

Chilling account of alleged rape of #Rakhine woman by #Myanmar #military as she was accused of being an #ArakanArmy member. Government deems #AA #terrorists. Story cannot be independently verified. But such accounts similar to what happened to #Rohingyas arakan.news/2020/07/myanma…
International community, foreign embassies in #Myanmar have voiced concerns over conflicts between #ArakanArmy & #Myanmar #military & how military conducting "clearance operations" to weed out those deemed as #AA #terrorists. Conflicts resulted in more than 77,000 displacements ImageImage
When #Myanmar security forces conducted "clearance operations" to hunt down perpetrators in #Rakhine in 2017, many #Rohingyas accused soldiers of mass #rape & #atrocities. Many dismissed accusations as false. seattletimes.com/nation-world/m… Now, similar accounts against ethnic Rakhine.

Truth is now Hatred...so be it. I will continue to raise alarm against #terrorists #jihadists

Rubbish they are spreading for over 1000+ years has been the death of #Hindus #Hinduism & #Hindus. Hindus are slaughtered, lost its land, mocked severely...YET, THESE HINDU HATERS EXIST ImageImageImage
So, true Hindus are the ones who show tolerance and be a GOOD person who spreads peace, not hatred. So, Gandhi likes can tell you to lower your neck, so the #Jihadists have easier way to slay the unbelievers neck and severed head can be presented as a gift for the NEW OWNER.

Thread: 👋🏾 Welcome new followers. I am a #nurse #researcher, leveraging my expertise for #health #equity. This includes fighting for #social #justice, #RacialJustice, etc. This #Throwback image depicts wounds that were passed down 1/6

If anyone knows the artist, please tag them.
through generations. You could swap the images out for multiple people groups w/ shared experiences of historical and ongoing #trauma. My desire is to not only show how these #atrocities CONTINUE to affect #population #health, but also to implement multilevel interventions 2/6
that mitigate the influence between the aftermath of such injustices & #health. (#Structuralracism has to be addressed to do this.) This is done in #partnership with communities. For too long too many #Scientists (me included) have been #complicit in documenting differences 3/6

@GlobalJusticeC panel with ex-#UN Special Rapporteur @YangheeLeeSKKU, ex-#KofiAnnan Commission member @lvandenassum & #Rohingya @waiwainu on #Myanmar & #Rohingyas with Prof Lee saying she has seen "no progress" in Myanmar to address Rohingya discrimination. #Justice4Rohingya ImageImage
Prof Lee adds it's "ironic" to see what happened to the #Rohingyas in #Myanmar in 2017 and prior now being seen again against the #Rakhine #ethnic citizens as she highlights how the #military is shelling and attacking the residents there now #Justice4Rohingya Image
Prof Lee highlights how it's "entirely doubtful" that the most responsible will be held accountable" for all the alleged atrocities in #Rakhine #Myanmar. Calls for nation to "dismantle" the system of discrimination against #Rohingyas & to amend the laws, reform justice system Image

The National Crime Records Bureau (#NCRB) published the annual Crime in India Report 2018 recently. #DALITWOMENFIGHT's @elite_dalit and @_senpai_i explains what it says about crime and #atrocities against #DalitWomen and children. #TalkCaste #SCSTPOA
As per the NCRB data 2018, the total number of crimes and atrocities reported against the Scheduled Caste is 42793. In these 42793 cases, the rate of filing of chargesheet is 81.3%, while the pendency rate is 27.5%. #DALITWOMENFIGHT #TalkCaste #NCRB #SCSTPOA
The high number of chargesheets being filed also negates the false notion that most of the cases filed are “fake” & out of “revenge”. It’s extremely important to remember that these are only those cases of atrocities which are reported.The actual number is much higher. #TalkCaste

Hours before @CIJ_ICJ announces decision on whether to order #Myanmar to implement provisional measures to prevent allegations of #genocide against #Rohingyas, #UN Special Rapporteur #YangheeLee holds presser in #Dhaka #Bangladesh for her final mission as her term ends ImageImageImageImage
#UN Special Rapporteur @YangheeLeeSKKU has been denied access into #Myanmar, expressing disappointment that her last attempt to engage Myanmar also rejected. Reiterates she must "speak the truth" even though it's "not to (government) liking". Adds "not too late to change course" Image
#UN Special Rapporteur #YangheeLee calls on #Rohingya #refugees who fled #Myanmar to #Bangladesh to "not give up hope" to return home to #Rakhine. More than 700,000 Rohingyas fled after violent security crackdown in 2017

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

🤥#HackedVoting/#illegitimateResults

ANOTHER HINT: My inability to escape intrahospital, interhospital & health/disability insurers’ #ConspiracyAgainstRights using #MedicalControlFrauds exposes motive of the right answer.
