27. RADIXers, for the last time this is @akgungor_c. So, when a disaster happens, society looks for #leadership and an efficient #response. While issues related to #crisismanagement & response usually seem to be the primary reason for public outrage in the first moments,
28...it doesn’t take long for a louder contestation to emerge, this one being about causes and responsibilities: How it happened; why it happened;
what could have been done in order to prevent it, and, if it wasn’t prevented, then who is responsible?
29. Clearly, #catastrophe is a legitimacy test for the political elite, as it is for the public administration. Leaders certainly prefer avoiding such debates about their presumed irresponsibility, indifference, or lethargy but for many others, starting with victims & journalists

17. Hi, this is @akgungor_c again. Let’s come back to where we had left: Post-disaster controversies… These are indeed closely associated with how we individually and socially (re)construct the #catastrophe.
18. A disaster is the outcome(s) of a physical occurrence as well as how we perceive and process them. Like any “event”, for every disaster, there are as many accounts as the number of people who’ve been exposed to it.
19. Individual #narratives of a disaster are the expression of how we position ourselves vis-a-vis the catastrophe and its effects on us, in a sense, fabricating our own #reality.

"Added to the food crisis and fallout from the explosion is the increasing bite of U.S. sanctions, mostly targeted at Syria, but also hitting its Lebanese neighbor."

yo .⁦@CBCMontreal⁩ .⁦@CBCAlerts

your story 👇 talks of “False narratives around #5G technology...” so by all means let’s deal with #5Gfacts & not mindlessly conflate with #C19

#5Gfact

***no independent scientific studies of #5G safety have ever been conducted — #fact wireless industry reps themselves have admitted.***

this MUST be brought to public attention!!!

(it certainly has been kept quiet so far.... 🤔 yo #cdnmedia! )

#5Gfact

any claims of #5G safety by #BigTelecom are cynical PR distraction ploy from core threats to human health (which #BigWireless, #lobbyists & servile ‘regulator’ .@GovCanHealth — both #PHAC & #HealthCanada — refuse to acknowledge)

#Tchernobyl : dans la nuit du 25 au 26 avril 1986, une série d’erreurs pendant un essai de sécurité entraînent l’explosion du réacteur n°4 et la fusion du cœur. La plus grave catastrophe nucléaire, longtemps la seule classée au niveau 7 sur l’échelle #INES, avant #Fukushima Image
#Tchernobyl, 2019, 33 ans depuis l’accident. Dites 33 : retour sur le rôle déterminant des #satellites d’observation dans le suivi de la #catastrophe : comme les nuages radioactifs, les satellites ne sont pas arrêtés par les frontières. Un #thread à dérouler… #space #nucléaire Image
En 2019, il semble facile d’avoir rapidement une image de n’importe quelle région du monde. Ici, la région et la centrale de #Tchernobyl , près de Prypiat, vue le 13/04/19 par le satellite européen #Sentinel2 (#Copernicus). Les images n’ont pas toujours été aussi disponibles… ImageImageImage

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.
