Hackers working for Chinese spy agencies stole a massive trove of confidential documents from an Australian defence contractor last year and recently hacked an Australian solar company, the US Department of Justice has revealed.
The two hackers, Li Xiaoyu, 34 years old & Dong Jiazhi, 33, have also been accused of targeting American firms seeking a vaccine for the coronavirus.

The indictment reveals that between April and June last year an unnamed Australian defence contractor was hacked by the two men.

Quick scan of #buildingsafetybill announcement

Stand by my earlier statement to @itvlondon on #Hackitt review

“It’s a bastardised wish list which may prove cost prohibative to implement”

Will be interesting to see the detail on Monday but THREAD with headline comments.
Many in the sector have known about the fire safety & building standards issues & have raised formally via professional bodies, academic & practice based outputs + petitions to @GOVUK or regional

Fig 1 major fire loss incidents

So why’s it taken @govuk decades to respond!
Immediate steps were too little too late despite warnings of #Garnockcourt #lakanal + many other fires around the globe.

Reviews occurred in @ScotGovBldgStds of primary legislation in 2003

Concept of fire and building safety life cycle isn’t a new one see paper circa 2007/8

How New Zealand could keep eliminating coronavirus at its border for months to come, even as the global pandemic worsens…

#NewZealand 🇳🇿 #coronavirus 😷 #COVID
"Since New Zealand closed its borders on March 19, the rate of COVID-19 infections globally has increased 50-fold, to more than 13 million confirmed cases worldwide.

All new arrivals to New Zealand have to spend 14 days in quarantine at government-managed hotels."

"Each person has to have a #COVID-19 swab test on the third and 12th day of their quarantine period and cannot leave without a negative test result.

A shorter #quarantine period would significantly increase the risk of an infectious person being released. The swab tests...

Great comment on our #PandemicGardening survey "#Urbanagriculture has always been practised in #Australian cities...our 'allotments' were our backyards. As Andrea Gaynor has so beautifully documented in Harvest of the Suburbs, [our] backyards produced large amounts of food...
...with urban consolidation, millions of Australians no longer have large yards in which to grow food. We need to learn how to get productive growing space into cities-in public spaces, on the privately owned common property in strata schemes, on balconies, on verges, & on roofs.
#Covid19 has hopefully concentrated people's minds on the fragility of food supply lines. The supermarkets will not always have food in them. If we can supplement our food supply with leafy greens, herbs and fruit from our own gardens, we will be much more #foodsecure.

#THREAD: #Beijing Steps Up the Pace of #Uyghur Forced Labor into Inner #China

Beijing ramps up transfers of Uyghurs into forced labor outside of their region, said an #Australian think tank

A #Nike manufacturer uses such forced labor

A must read👍…
Tens of thousands of unwilling Uyghur recruits, many straight from internment camps, are being herded as never before, onto trains. To fulfill a rising tide of punishing Government quotas, they are being shipped in increasing numbers to factories and sweat shops to
In “Uyghurs For Sale,” the original report, 83 global brands & labels were identified as having benefitted from Uyghur forced labor at some stage in their supply chain. Major tech, automotive & fashion int. firms, including from nine European countries, have all been implicated.

Victory Day parade held in Minsk, Belarus on May 9th 2020
An army parade to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Soviet people's victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 took place in Minsk on 9 May
No #SocialDistancing by fascist cops 😉…
The Daily 🕎 Mail reports on Minsk Parade
Belarus ‘bribes people’ to attend Victory Day parade! 🤣
President Alexander Lukashenko has rejected #lockdown, earlier claiming coronavirus is a 'mass psychosis' 😉…
Belarus is considered by the Western media and politicians as a 'brutal regime'!
Meanwhile in the West our civil rights are trampled by the (semi-)police 😉
#Belarus has made a joke out of the Western politicians and their #Covid_19 fearporn.

Mona Eltahawy Would Like You to Fuck Right Off With Your Civility Politics…
This episode of #Australian TV show Q&A was banned from rebroadcast for reasons including I said “fuck” 10 times & asked “How many rapists must we kill before men stop raping women?”

Fuck civility.

1. just want to remind you what *5Eyes* means in these days #5Eyes hit the headlines due to #Trump blaming #China and suggesting #COVID leaked from a #Wuhan lab. The #Snowden files contributed to shed light on #5Eyes

In a step up of aggression, #China sent a destroyer to harass the #Malaysian West Capella oil drillship.

They usually use coast guard ships (which are also there)....

But this is what they got: 3 #US & 1 #Australian warships, led by the USS America #LHA6 👇

The picture released by the #USNavy of the 4 ships operating near the standoff in #Malaysian waters that "interacted" with #Chinese ships

As usual, when confronted with force👇

#China Issues Muted Response to #US Warships Near #SouthChinaSea Standoff…
#Chinese officials typically call out #US actions in the #SouthChinaSea that conflict with Beijing’s interests.

However, during a Tuesday press conference, the foreign ministry presented a toned-down response to questions about U.S. ships near the territorial dispute.

#coronavirus leaves #Australian economy facing first recession in 30 years

High household debt and a reliance on #Chinese demand for its exports leave Canberra acutely vulnerable. Some predict unemployment will hit 15%…
In Australia, analysts have predicted that unemployment could soar to 15% within months as 2 million people find themselves out of work – figures not seen since the Great Depression – with the biggest job losses expected in sectors dominated by casual workers.
Some of the country’s biggest employers have already sent tens of thousands of workers home. Fashion retailer Premier Investments said on Thursday it was standing down nearly all of its 9,000 employees, while Flight Centre Travel Group announced it was furloughing 4,000 workers.

This is a great day for feminists everywhere, pan-African feminists and feminists around the world! A High Court quashed her conviction and sentencing. She has been in prison for a poem deemed “cyber harassment” about #Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni
In August 2019, the feminist scholar, activist and poet was sentenced to 18 months in prison for writing a poem wishing that Museveni’s mother’s birth canal had poisoned him during birth. Read the poem @drstellanyanzi wrote from prison and #BeBoldLikeNyanzi
Dr. Stella Nyanzi is one of my heroes. Her insistence on profanity in the face of patriarchy and dictatorship - the real profanity, the real offense, the real vulgarity - is legendary.

Fuck the patriarchy, everywhere. Fuck dictatorship, everywhere.

When I asked on an Australian TV show “How many rapists must we kill until men stop raping women,” the episode was banned from ever being re-broadcast because the thought of women’s violence against men in self-defense generates more outrage than men’s violence against women.
“How many rapists must we kill before men stop raping us?”- an imaginary scenario of violence. The ABC network censored the show, investigated, a minister issued a statement

Congratulations @thebettinaarndt, recognized for services “to gender equity through advocacy for men”

aka Bootlicker of the White Supremacist Patriarchy Award.

Commiserations @RitaPanahi, who once again lost out to a white girl. #PickMe #MaybeNextYear…
And #RIPMyMentions 😂😂🤣🤣
Patriarchy is not men. Patriarchy employs a system of oppressions to maintain male dominance.

This recognition of @thebettinaarndt is a white supremacist state commemorating a white supremacist day by recognizing a woman who is a bootlicker of that white patriarchy.

For shame

Brittany Smith goes on trial in Alabama on Tuesday, facing life in prison, for killing the man who raped her. How far can abuses women go to protect themselves?… h/t @justdina_
In Nov. 2019, I asked “How many rapists must we kill before men to stop raping us?” on an episode of an #Australian TV show. That episode has been banned because imagined violence against men is consideee worse than actual violence against women.

“Fighting back against rapists and abusers is a valid legal defense. But women with persuasive self-defense claims continue to be charged with murder.”

That is especially worse for Black women in the US and other women of colour.

These arresting images are from residents of the small town of #Mallacoota at 10.30AM!!!! as they huddled on a wharf and watched flames come towards them from multiple fronts.

There's one road in/out of town but no-one could use it to evacuate. Everyone was ordered to the town wharf to wait out the #bushfire, sitting ready in life jackets.

One of these days, #Australian racists and misogynists will stop talking about me. Today is not that day.

Today: I am proud to be called a “dangerous extremists” aka feminist by Bettina the Bootlicker of the Patriarchy
Yesterday: I am proud that this racist, misogynist rag connects me to another ranting Bootlicker of the Patriarchy (and white supremacist) politician Pauline Hanson

#Australia you are obsessed with me and I’m mighty flattered I discombobulate the white men & their bootlickers!
This is what has driven #Australian white patriarchy & its bootlickers hysterical: I asked “How long must we wait for men and boys to stop murdering us, to stop beating us and to stop raping us? How many rapists must we kill?" This episode is now banned

When my book Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution came out in 2015, white supremacist misogynists & their bootlickers were happy to point at shit “over there.” When I pointed to shit “over here” in my new book #7necessarysins, they lost their shit
White #Australian men & their bootlickers like Bettina love to point to MidEast & Muslim men. But when I point at them they’re hysterical. For example, when I asked on Q&A about ALL men “How many rapists must we kill before men stop raping women?"
The misogynist shits and their bootlickers keep asking “Why aren’t you fighting against misogyny in the Middle East?” because Whataboutery is easier than recognizing that patriarchy & misogyny are universal and that I fight them in the MidEast AND EVERYWHERE including #Australia

Thank you all who have replied! Scroll to understand:
- why #Australia & #US are led by white supremacist misogynists
- how white women Bootlickers of the Patriarchy boost them
- why Australia is mulling “religious discrimination” bill that will fuck women & marginalized groups
It’s especially useful to see how much in common white #Australian men have with #Saudi men. This year started w/hysterical Saudi men in my mentions for weeks after I helped Rahaf escape. And now the year is ending w/Australian men hysterical in my mentions for weeks:
It’s telling to see how much white #Australian men have in common with #Saudi men because the former are always going on about Muslim men’s misogyny. And as I said after I appeared on Q&A, those Aussie men would support & agree w/me if I targeted JUST the misogyny of Muslim men.

If bill passes:
- A woman may be told by a manager that women should submit to their husbands or that women should not be employed outside the home.
- A student with disability may be told by a teacher their disability is a trial imposed by God. #Australia…
Bill would protect:
- A Catholic doctor refusing to provide contraception to all patients (EM) or to prescribe hormone treatment for gender transition
- A psychiatrist could say to a woman with depression that “she should be looking forward to the kingdom of heaven”.
- An office worker could declare on social media that a fellow employee is in a wheelchair because they are sinful and urge them to attend a faith healer. #Australia
