3. Did Jeffrey #Epstein commit suicide, was murdered, or was "helped & taken elsewhere"so that he could not expose his dear friends?
We must not forget that Epstein could implicate very important people in this case of pedophilia.

#AmazoniaIsNotForSale

Observe the map below: it represents the area affected by the current fires in Amazonia.
#AmazoniaIsNotForSale

2/ Now observe the map below. These are the 33 Mexicos in the mind of imbecile racist Americans. Observe the countries and compare with the map above, with the fire image:
#AmazoniaIsNotForSale

3/ Observe now the distribution of #indigenous reserves in Amazonia, which, BTW, should cover ALL OF AMAZONIA: the land was stolen from them. It still belongs to a country called #Brazil. There are fascist in power - we're going to kick them out.

#FalseAlarm, #fakenews, ignorance...2019 #AmazonFires are only 35% more (ok, so far) than the average of the last 8 years.Most are burning on agricultural land where the forest had already been cleared, a common agricultural practice #deforestation #Brazil nytimes.com/interactive/20…
#AmazonFires 🔥🔥🔥 As of August 16, 2019, an analysis of #NASA satellite data indicated that total fire activity across the #Amazon basin this year has been close to the AVERAGE in comparison to the past 15 years. earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/145464/…
#AmazonFires 🔥🔥🔥 Dr. Jonathan Foley @GlobalEcoGuy @ProjectDrawdown
#Amazon contributes at most 5% (not 20%) of the world’s oxygen‼️
We actually used to see fires like this, and even worse, back in the 1990s and the early 2000s #climatechange #FakeNews

1/ The Amazon forest is burning up, we’ve all heard about it by now. What can you do about it? A thread in 8 chapters. 🌳🔥👩🏼‍🚒💪🏾
2/ Spread the word, help raise awareness. Just like @GretaThunberg gave all of us & those in power no option but to listen and act, you can now do the same with the Amazon. Inform yourself and share the knowledge: blog.ecosia.org/brazils-amazon…
@GretaThunberg 3/ There are many organisation you can donate to to help protect animal & tree species living in the Amazon. Consider donating to the @WWF or @RnfrstAlliance , for example. Comment under this tweet for more organizations protecting the Amazon!

"And in politics, a wave of right-wing YouTube stars ran for office alongside Mr. Bolsonaro, some winning by historic margins. Most still use the platform, governing the world’s fourth-largest democracy through internet-honed trolling and provocation" nytimes.com/2019/08/11/wor…
“If social media didn’t exist, I wouldn’t be here,” he said. “Jair Bolsonaro wouldn’t be president.”
But the fact that Bolsonaro wouldn't have been #Brazil's president without social media doesn't suggest, on its own, that social media is inherently bad or whatever, any more than saying Bolsonaro wouldn't have been president without democracy (he wouldn't have)

Authorities in #Brazil searched Sembcorp Marine this week in relation to the #CarWash / #Petrobras bribery scandal.

One of their competitors, Keppel, already pleaded guilty to US DOJ charges in 2017.

Keep an eye out for DOJ charges against Sembcorp.

Here are the DOJ charges and fines against Keppel:

This 2018 article made a tiny mention at the very end that Sembcorp Marine (and Keppel) were under a "Department of Justice probe."

"Em junho, a Amazônia perdeu 762,3 km² de floresta, o equivalente a duas vezes a área de Belo Horizonte. É o pior registro do mês desde 2016. No acumulado dos últimos 180 dias, o quadro também inspira preocupações."
"No mesmo período, em junho de 2018, o desmatamento havia sido de 488,4 km². Na prática, a floresta perdeu duas cidades do porte de Paris a mais em comparação ao ano passado."

#FB will soon learn that its vaunted plans for #Libra are going nowhere
on.ft.com/2LmOUVj
#FB’s #Libra is like when the Gates Foundation spent $8mm on an “ewallet” for #Haiti after 2011. The app designers didn’t talk to 1 ordinary Haitian merchant,school, or remittance sender. They ended up begging Western Union + local banks to trade credits for cash. 1/n
#FB’s #Libra is just another “engineer-driven” app. #FB is not exactly belovef these days, having hacked democracy, + trust is everything in payments. The world’s central banks+ anti-money laundering agencies are not going to roll over + give up control to Zuckerburg. 2/n
