#Ukraine #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk? Falsehood” Image
‘It was not #Ukraine that #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk

Sometimes anti-#Ukrainian #propaganda uses falsehoods – e.g. #fabricated documents or photos, through which it gives a completely new, #untrue context – or simply untruth.
This is the case here. In the post we read that the current Ukrainian authorities "#murdered the #people of #Donbass and #Luhansk due to their #ethnic origin."

It's a while since I've had one of these, and not in response to anything specific - I've been very inactive on #WesternSahara lately. Must be a quiet day on a troll farm somewhere in #Morocco. Image
Anyway, I have a rule that whenever I'm trolled by agents of the #Moroccan state, I post photos of the Sahrawi controlled areas of #WesternSahara, to highlight the conflict & #Morocco's partition of this non-self-governing territory. Here's the view from Tin Gfuf, Southern Sector Image

There’s #conflict in change. And right now, we’re going through many changes. Shifts to #renewables, digitization, distributed systems, transparency etc.

When trying to better understand how these transitions and conflicts work, I find the 3 Horizons Model to be helpful. 🧵👇
The 1st horizon signifies business as usual, which is losing its fit for purpose.

Some of this may continue into the future, but we know it is in decline for sure.
Horizon 3 is the viable #future we can envision.

It holds our hopes and dreams of what the future could be, and one that is possible with #innovation and progress.

My long read on sex #trafficking in #Iraq is out as part of our @AJpeoplepower investigation.

Through exclusive access to authorities, traffickers and survivors, it sheds light on the power structures that fuel the exploitation of girls. 1/

For >than a year, @AJEnglish investigated the sex trade in Iraq, a growing phenomenon fueled by deeply entrenched socioeconomic factors & enabled by a tangled web of corrupt officials & armed groups, a toxic mix that has become the hallmark of the US' post-2003 legacy in Iraq. 2/
Prostitution exists around the world, but how are girls lured into it in a conservative society where extramarital sex is taboo?

Turns out that traffickers exploit these norms, literally SHAMING girls into the sex trade. 3/
