🧵 #Colonization And #Slavery

While European colonialism is condemned, the crimes committed by other civilizations have either fallen to the wayside to be forgotten or even glorified

Let’s explore some of the examples:
#Native Slavery:

When Alaska was ceded to America, the Tlingit sued the US, over anti-slavery act.

#Native chiefs rejected it, stating the buying, selling, and holding of slaves is one of the rules & customs of their people; the civil authorities have no jurisdiction over them.
#Arab Slavery

You likely have heard of the Transatlantic slave trade, but have you heard of the Islamic Arab Slave trade? A trade that enslaved millions of Africans and Europeans, and easily rivaled the Transatlantic slave trade? Probably not.

1\ Serious question time: Remember the last time we had a cold war and there were HUGE #nuclearban rallies? Things like @Greenpeace got started. We are in a pandemic. Where are the anti-proliferation rallies for #bioweapons? Image
2\ For that matter where are the campaigning groups pushing back against #climate hostile #geoengineering practices like atmospheric seeding? theguardian.com/world/2021/dec…
3\ Where is the pushback against plans to seed Earth's orbit with thousands of vision and sensor blocking #SpaceX #Starlink satellites, which will eventually become #spacejunk? scientificamerican.com/article/spacex…

#RSS is least of our concern when #India's #secularists are exploiting B'desh #riot to bestow legitimacy on a #fascist #colonial administration - by #Hasina.

Unlike #Kashmir, B'desh doesn't have a discourse - largely due to not having access/fluency in #English..

1/n.

@na_nznn
With no B'deshis around to resist their hegemony, the #colonizers have a free stadium to kick the ball - protraying B'deshi #Muslims as '#extremists', '#violent', '#WarCriminal' and so on.

#Riot is a football match, again producing consent for #Hasina's... 2/n.

@na_nznn
...government in #Delhi.

A lot of '#Kashmiri scholars' (who doesn't have to face the wrath of the state) & their silence around this #Hindu-#Secularist 'saviors' axis are equally complicit.

The #colonizers are sealing our fates. 3/n.

Inga Clendinnen "Dancing with Strangers"

In this thread students @MQLinguistics read Clendinnen's historical #ethnography based on the diaries of the officers of the 1st fleet to learn about #InterculturalCommunication between British colonizers and Sydney's Indigenous people
#DancingWithStrangers is a story of confusion and ignorance of #culture #language, aspirations, traditions and #law
One of the most tragic figures is Baneelon, an Australian kidnapped by Governor Phillip and taught English in a desperate attempt to create an intermediary.
The detailed musings of the white men in #DancingWithStrangers contrast with the deafening silence of any women's voices - what did the Indigenous and colonising #women think of each other? Of the men they encountered? How different would history be if women had been in charge?

#ID2020 is very quiet having published a single video in 10 months - the #GoodHealthPass launch event (Feb 11 2021 w/ 2,452 views). Equally restrained is the Twitter account created Jan 2021, w/ a mere 384 followers - & 12 tweets. ID2020 Twitter is also on hiatus. #Strategy ImageImageImageImage
"Urgency - While standards-development processes typically move slowly, a cross-sector effort is urgently required to bring #goodhealthpass solutions to market in 2021 & to scale globally – with the same urgency applied to #vaccine development."

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."

leftlockdownsceptics.com/2021/08/the-pa…
"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."

And there it is. I will not expect children to go back to school. If they do, I will be surprised... Parents did this. Teachers enforced it. Unions demanded it. Shame on everyone that reinforced the fear narrative.

2/🌏#Earth is surrounded by a constellation of tens of thousands of #satellites in orbit, but also of billions of #spacejunk of more or less large size, fragments coming from rockets or satellites, travelling at a very high speed: important risks of #collision.
3/💥#Kessler syndrome: we are rapidly moving towards a tipping point where the volume of space debris in low orbit is such that collisions are frequent, generate other debris and exponentially increase the probability of collisions.

Day 2 of the #Indigenous History Conference will feature panels on #colonization in American history. The first will include Jean O'Brien (Ojibwe), Tom Wickman, Darius Coombs (Mashpee Wampanoag), jessie little doe baird (Mashpee Wampanoag), and Robert Miller (Eastern Shawnee).
First, Mark Charles (Navajo) will be speaking on the doctrine of discovery. Many people in Native communities have researched and written on this in attempt to bring it to the forefront.
Charles: Doctrine of Discovery, (like one papal bull written in 1452 by Nicholas V.) Church in Europe commanded Europeans to colonize, take over, steal, conquer lands. That people inhabiting those lands are inhuman. @wirelesshogan

“If there is talk about anti-black #racism and working against mental #colonization, then it makes sense that #Muslims, as well as #Christians, #decolonize these depictions of prophets and saintly people,”
by @AlanRMacLeod
mintpressnews.com/white-jesus-de…
Warner Sallman’s now-ubiquitous “Head of Christ” circa 1940 is probably the origin of the idea of the #WhiteJesus for many Americans.
Article by @AlanRMacLeod

The power of the image to have a profound effect on behavior and the human psyche is precisely the reason the debate about accurate racial representation of religious figures in art is happening at this moment.

#My_Twitter_Rule 20/1
Our youth in a rush to create following on digital platforms. It is good start, but do they know what next. Having big following is just tool, unless one knew what to do with it, interest will die down after a while. Please read & learn who we (Muslims) are?
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/2
But read what? How to build #knowledge. #Information & Knowledge are two different things. Use Authentic sources, Introspection, Deliberation & Exchanges brings #Wisdom to the discourse.
Starting point is always #Quran! Read once translation & commentary....
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/3
Quran is a biggest gift of Allah, a guide, a constitution & a Hidaya. THAWAB is not its primary purpose!
Prophet SAW biography. He is a leader, head of state, a commander, peace maker, Mercy to mankind, role model (husband, father neighbor an orphan himself)

To celebrate 153 years of genocide, I offer this grotesque CBC article (June 8 2020): "AFN national chief to help Prince Charles promote '#GreatReset' environmental initiative in Canada"

#AFN #Betrayal #Assimilation #Colonization #WEF #Nature4Sale #4IR

cbc.ca/news/indigenou…
"Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde says Prince Charles shares First Nations worldview."

First Nations worldview does not uphold the corporate ideology that nature herself should be assigned monetary value. This is the colonizers plan.

#NewDealForNature
"The project involves the World Economic Forum and the prince's Sustainable Markets Initiative."

USE THIS #Thread #Paradox of #AntiracistEdLeadership in #Edsystems- thoughts I've been really mulling abt in the past while. Have to admit, I've been sitting on this for a couple weeks. Grateful to those who helped me sift through my thinking <3 Here's to #courageousconversations
True #AntiRacist Leadership can only happen when you are anchored in #communities and you do the work #buildrelationships #seekadvice #love & #beLoved by those who give you #permission & #legitimacy to continue the struggle in boardrooms.
When I became a senior leader in Edu. I was advised that - You cannot be on the streets & in the boardrooms. "its time to choose. Its a different struggle." I didnt choose bc WE deserve to be in the boardroom but THAT choice comes at a #price

#HowICameToClimate: I grew up in an activist fam. Mom was an elected official+attorney fighting police violence. As a teen I was active in the peace movement+witnessed much eco-activism connected to that (mostly white). In my 20s I did black community organizing.
#ClimateTwitter
In the early '00s, I co-faciltated a bunch of activist spaces w/ Van Jones+Julia Butterfly that connected racial+economic justice w/ eco activism. Back then, I was primarily an artist+occasional facilitator. Most of my energy went into making art that has strong social commentary
At the time, I wasn't part of any particular political organizations, but I had strong relationships with activists in many movements+folks knew they could call on me for different stuff: performing, teaching, facilitating. Folks commissioned me to write poems for their movements

"#OpDeathEaters #Guam #opdegod "The pastor sent the sobbing 13-year-old altar boy away with a warning:
“If you say anything to anybody, no one will believe you.” apnews.com/b8442f05def44d… #CatholicChurch
"Denton told his mother, but says she accused him of making it up. He told another priest, but that man did nothing & later turned out to be an abuser himself."

What mother in her right mind would think a 13 yr old boy would make something like that up #OpDeathEaters? #opdegod
"thousands of pages of court documents reviewed by The Associated Press, along with extensive interviews, tell a story of systemic abuse dating from the 1950s to as recently as 2013. They show a pattern of repeated collusion by predator priests" #OpDeathEaters #opdegod

I interrupt a terribly exhausting writing exercise to share a valuable lesson in how media serves capital.

A lesson in #Spectacle

Feb 21, 2019: 'Kicking Ass for Her Generation': Applause for 16-Year-Old Greta Thunberg as EU Chief Pledges Billions to Curb Climate Threat"...
"...—after weeks of climate strikes around the world inspired by the Swedish teenager—that the European Union has heard the demands of young people..."

#Spectacle

btw - here is the link:
commondreams.org/news/2019/02/2…
"In the financial period beginning in 2021, Juncker said, the EU will devote a quarter of its budget to solving the crisis."

Win! Victory! "Greta Thunberg, literally changing the world"
