Last night, news broke after a whistleblower exposed that #ICE is forcibly sterilizing women in its camps, many of whom are Indigenous Central & South Americans. This is horrific, but it’s hardly surprising. Let’s examine why. THREAD 1/x
The US has a long history of forcibly sterilizing #BIWOC & indigent & mentally ill women, in addition to its long history of committing acts of #genocide against #BIPOC through the theft, forced displacement, & sale of children. See Laura Briggs, Taking Children. 2/x
But eugenics & #colonialism are not only part of #UShistory, the US was the template for a number of Nazi projects. Timothy Snyder argues successfully in Black Earth that Hitler’s concept of lebensraum, or living space, was a colonial model based upon US Western Expansion. 3/x

Storm Corps. It is a special forces unit of North Korea that is good at mountain warfare, night battle, rear disturbance, etc., which is also known as the 11th corps of the Korean People's Army.
Last month, a soldier was dispatched to the border areas of North Hamgyong Province and Ryanggang Province, but it is believed that the purpose is to strengthen border security as a countermeasure against the new coronavirus and
to monitor the working conditions of the border guard. A soldier with such a storm corps temporarily defected for criminal purposes. The US government-affiliated Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported. A soldier from the Storm Corps, who was sent to Ryanggang to guard the border,

•Our major partn’ships are strongr & internat’l standng higher.Witness regular summits&informal meetngs wth #US #Russia #Europe & #Japan.India engages #China on more equal terms politically.

Ask the analysts.
•We speak our mind more openly now. On #CPEC, on #BRI, on South China Sea, on UN-sanctioned terrorists, etc.

Ask the media.
• And address the #border infrastructure imbalance legacy. Compare 2014-20 with 2008-14. Budget up by 280%, road building by 32%, bridges by 99% and tunnels by 6 times.

Ask our Jawans.

"20 Indian soldiers dead after clash w Chinese troops high in the Himalayas, Indian army says washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pac…
The conflict is the 1st deadly encounter between Indian & Chinese forces in 45 years & marks a severe escalation in tensions betw/ the 2 nuclear-armed neighbors."
"The deaths occurred in the mountainous region of #Ladakh where #India & #China share a disputed...#border. No Indian soldiers have been killed in clashes on the frontier between the 2 countries since 1975, experts say, & no casualties of this magnitude have occurred since 1967."
"#India at first said that 3 #soldiers had died in a 'violent faceoff' that caused '#casualties on both sides.'

Later Tuesday, the #Indian #Army said in a statement that 17 more Indian #troops who were 'critically injured in the line of duty' had “succumbed to their injuries.'"

#NorthKorea #북한 #China #border #Sinujiu #Dangdong

North Korea and China finnished the construction of the new 3km lomg Yalu rivee bridge between Sinujiu (NK) and Dangdong (CN).
North Korea resumed the construction of a road on last Sunday,
according to multiple sources and photos posted on a Chinese social media platform. With the help of China’s investment, the six-lane bridge was completed in 2014 as a replacement of the Sino–North Korean Friendship Bridge, an old and narrow bridge built in 1943.
The New Yalu River Bridge was expected to boost trade between the two nations.

BREAKING: @sdACLU + @JFSSD submit a complaint to @DHSOIG on behalf of a Guatemalan woman apprehended by #Border Patrol while in labor *and forced to give birth in custody while standing up.* Full complaint here: aclusandiego.org/wp-content/upl… (A THREAD)
This woman, whom we are calling "Ana" to protect her privacy, fled Guatemala with her husband and two children and attempted to seek #asylum in the United States.
#Border Patrol apprehended "Ana" (who was more than 8 months pregnant) and her family in mid-February 2020. "Ana" was ill with a severe cough and was experiencing severe pain in her womb (which she later understood to be labor).

Update on #COVID19 situation in Australia. Overall good ! Detected cases 6,019 (+96), Recovered cases 2085 (+322), death 50 (+2). 2x more recovery than detected cases. Doubling time 13 days ! Follows Korea #flatteningthecurve due to #border closure #SocialDistancing & lots tests ImageImageImageImage
At State level, all #flatteningthecurve. Looking at NSW + VIC overseas travelers detected cases steady. Interestingly community still steadily increases (~12.9% cases today) -> slow growth rate (0.1%/day). National level 560 community acquired cases 9.6% total (growth 0.2%/day) ImageImageImage
Testing rate. Today over 318,000 tests performed in Australia with hit rate at 1.8%. Interestingly we are first days of relaxations of testing criteria and no surges in cases. In fact I see hit rate decreasing (0.1% today) ! Very good early signs ! Hopefully this will continue. Image

So, let's take a look at the latest #ContactTracing effort to emerge: pepp-pt.org - not an app, but 'components' to build apps & systems.

(There's so many tracers popping up now, it's getting like the rash of #COVID19 #SymptomSurveys that broke out last week...)

Nice to hear that @PeppPt "embrace a fully #privacy-preserving approach". So what exactly is it? (The devil, of course, is always in the detail...)

Ah! Here we are, "a brief description of our #privacy enforcing flow":

First, #AnonymousIdentifiers. Good. (And precisely what we recommended: medconfidential.org/wp-content/upl…)

This really is a no-brainer; anyone proposing to use persistent #deviceIDs at this point is plainly a clueless numpty. Or actively seeking to #surveille.

2019 in Review📅Article by @charlottecuthbo (Thread👇)

#BorderCrisis Peak, #Mexico Cooperation, and Judicial Wrangling

The year began with President Trump declaring a #NationalEmergency at the southern #Border. theepochtimes.com/year-in-review…
The #BorderCrisis escalated, and in May, nearly 133,000 #IllegalAliens were apprehended by #BorderPatrol, with a further 11,000 presenting at ports of entry without legal documentation.

By the end of fiscal 2019, almost 1 million people had entered the US illegally.
Over 600,000 of them were either individuals within a family unit or unaccompanied minors—both vulnerable populations that often arrived sick and required more care than #BorderPatrol was set up to provide.

#Belgium #Aalst

The #Belgian city of #Aalst returns the #award of its #carnival as a #Worldheritage Site.
Background are allegations of #racism and #antisemitism.
Mayor Christoph D'Haese said that one has had enough of the "grotesque #complaints" and let the #carnival be #deleted from the list. He thus came before a decision of @UNESCO before.
he had already considered removing the #Aalst #Carnival from World Heritage at the upcoming mid-month meeting.
The controversy has been going on since #spring. At that time D'Haese defended a float of the procession,

@BorderBrexit They're results of an online survey (475 respondents) from both sides @BorderIrish, conducted by @QUBelfast @milena_komarova & me for @europe_icban.

It shows rising anxieties re: a hard border & #NoDeal are having tangible effects in decisions & actions in border region.

@BorderBrexit @BorderIrish @QUBelfast @milena_komarova @europe_icban The survey confirms #Brexit is already having an impact on life on both sides of the border.

Respondents report economic changes (e.g. job losses, business disinvestment, problems in labour recruitment) plus rising concerns about the #peace process & future stability.

An open letter from a 'Border Bishop', Rt Revd John McDowell, to the Prime Minister @BorisJohnson in @Telegraph. ✍️

A powerful read, coming from @churchofireland Diocese of Clogher, which literally transcends the border.

What it says must be heard.

telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/…
@BorisJohnson @Telegraph @churchofireland Why write?
"the alternative would be to simply wither in the silence of exhaustion."

Why the concern?
"Expressed in the starkest terms, the Border is the background against which all political and much cultural life in Northern Ireland... is worked out."

2/4
@BorisJohnson @Telegraph @churchofireland "The long term well-being of men & women... all along the #border requires & deserves a clearly spelt-out, sustainable agreement between both sides.
This is so they have not only that material basis necessary for civilised living but also hope for their children’s future."

1/ Several hundred migrants a day spill out of overcrowded border detention centers that no longer have the bandwidth to handle them. We went to San Antonio to see where they go afterwards. Here’s what we found out. #texas #border bit.ly/2xvNfVb
2/ Many of the migrants end up at a new migrant resource center in San Antonio, hastily opened inside of an old Quiznos to accommodate the influx. The center has served more than 20,000 in the past three months. bit.ly/2xvNfVb
3/ Often, these migrants have no money and no place to go. After his journey to San Antonio, one migrant only had $2 left; he needed to get from there to Portland, Maine by Tuesday to make it to his check-in with immigration officials. bit.ly/2xvNfVb
