The impact of 🇷🇺 🇺🇦 war on #Africa
🧵(1/10)
African countries, which have been out of 🇺🇦 attention for a long time, have now become relevant due to #RussiaUkraineWar. The economic circumstances of war with blocking the export of 🇺🇦 goods abroad affect Africa to a greater extent.
Beyond food security, Africa is a region where Western influence is waning and the presence of Turkey, China and Russia is growing. Modern Africa consists of the former colonies of Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Portugal and Italy. (2/10)
After gaining their independence in the 1960s and 1980s, the newly formed countries began to focus not only on the West. Since the "cold war" was going on at that time, Moscow became a certain "alternative" and at the same time a sponsor of African countries. (3/10)

La conferencia de #Durban, la rave antisemita promovida por la ONU, ve como cada día se le caen más participantes, espantados por ese discurso de odio: Canadá, Países Bajos, Reino Unido, Australia, EE.UU.,...
Y España @MAECgob , más cerca de La Habana y Teherán. 🤦‍♂️

Primero, el contexto: ¿Qué es Durban?
En 2001, una semana antes de los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre, la ONU organizó la “Conferencia Mundial sobre Racismo, Discriminación, Xenofobia e Intolerancia” en Durban, Sudáfrica.
Sin embargo, en lugar de combatir el racismo, la conferencia lo incitó. Durban se convirtió en la peor manifestación internacional de antisemitismo en el período de posguerra.

The first #Durban conference, with its #Antisemitic anti-Zionist 'Durban Declaration' keeps regenerating itself, like a virus
Sept '21 will see the @UN hosting #DurbanIV, which will double down on its '#Zionism-is-racism' slander, giving oxygen to Antisemitic anti-#Zionists

The original Durban Conference was intended as a conference against racism, but quickly revealed itself as a grotesque farce rife with #Antisemitic anti-#Zionism.

It has remained so to this day, promulgated by those who simply want a world without its only Jewish state.

The UK pulled out of Durban III in 2011 because of the grotesque Antisemitic-anti-Zionism

The UK is a self-declared friend of Israel 🇮🇱

The UK's @BorisJohnson must stand up for its friend, 🇮🇱, & against the #Jew-hate now synonymous with the #Durban conferences & Declaration

Today is the #InternationalDayofSolidaritywiththePalestinianPeople. The UN established it in 1977 in the context of anti-imperial resistance, particularly to the United States, which has been blocking pathways to freedom for Palestinians. #Palestinians #Solidarity #Thread
The #Palestinian #Liberation Organization entered the #UN foray in 1974 & immediately helped pass UNGA Res 3236 - a corrective to UNSC Res 242, which normalized Israel's status pre 1967 & reified the juridical erasure of Palestinians as a people w the right to self-determination.
In 1975, the UNGA passed Res 3375 insisting that the PLO be included in the Middle East Peace Process - which the US and Israel excluded vehemently and instead discussed their interests through proxy of other Arab States thus insisting that #Palestinians "do not exist." #Freedom
