This is not how supply and demand economic theory WORKS people?!?!? #EndDemand initiatives for #SexWork does NOT enable #trafficking. Think about it. Let’s kick this #EndDemand can all the way down the road, shall we?
#Trafficking is a crime. Pimping is a crime. #DMST is a crime And they STAY crimes under #FullDecrim. Full stop. BUT we STOP arresting adult consensual #SexWorkers AND we don’t entrap their clients in stings. The BONUS is we ALSO stop arresting A LOT of victims of #SexTrafficking
Supporting #EndDemand initiatives is a knee jerk reaction to a complicated problem. But NOT ARRESTING grown adults for adult consensual behavior (that is perfectly legal if they do it for free) is not such a crazy idea. It actually makes a LOT of sense if you step back a bit

Here is a prime example of how the baby-above-all-else narrative triumphs over fact in the #media: a 🧵. Let's start with criminal offences. In fact, overseas commercial #surrogacy is ILLEGAL for residents of NSW. Sydney, obviously, is NSW's capital. @smh fails to mention this.
International #commercialsurrogacy is also illegal for residents of the ACT and QLD. This article does not state this either. It fails to mention where these people are from. It does not question the legality of their actions.
Why is commercial #surrogacy a criminal offence in NSW? Well, because of 'considerable medical, ethical, legal and human rights concerns', which include the exploitation of surrogates and the resulting children. #fertility #infertility #law #ivf #donorconception #humanrights

"70 années de parlementarisme ont pu cacher en partie aux ouvriers et paysans de France la nature rapace et sans scrupules de leur impérialisme ; les événements actuels dévoilent complètement son rôle vis-à-vis de la "nation".
"Le grand Capital, qui exploitera la France aussi longtemps que les ouvriers et les paysans ne se seront pas emparés des moyens de production, considère la "nation" comme un simple moyen : instrument de pillage mondial quand il est assez fort pour se mesurer directement avec...

Under guise of protecting #biodiversity:

"Framed as perhaps the last untapped, under-explored & under-exploited region in the world, the Pacific #Ocean is set to be a contested space for resources."

#WorldEconomicForum #SDGs
"The #BlueEconomy heralds a new race to carve up the Pacific, turning the Pacific Ocean, from surface to seafloor, into a crowded/contested space. Pacific state leaders are courted w/ economic gains that are a fraction of the value of the ocean resources that will be #extracted."

On International Day to End Violence Against Women In The Sex Trade, I am going to compile statistics and evidence about my country Germany specifically and how with 18 years of highly permissive laws towards brothel keepers, pimps and sex buyers we have arrived at the following:
Violence frequently starts prior to entry into the sex trade. It is not a myth that women in #prostitution are disproportionately neglected and abused physically, sexually or emotionally in childhood. According to gov-funded study half faced regular abuse:…
According to one study that asked 54 women in German prostitution, 41% entered were first exploited as minors.… International pro-prostitution oriented researchers confirm a rate of 20-40% entry into sexual exploitation as minors:…

१. नए अध्यादेश में एमएसपी का कहीं जिक्र नहीं है.
यह प्रश्न उठाने वाले यह शंका जाहिर कर रहे हैं कि व्यापारी किसानों से मनमाने कीमत पर उनके घर जाकर उनका माल खरीद लेंगे. ऐसा कहते हुए वे मानो यह आभास दे रहे हैं कि कृषि उत्पन्न बाजार समिति में होने वाले सौदों में पहले #Farmersbill2020 Image
एमएसपी की कोई गारंटी हुआ करती थी. सच्चाई यह है के देश के किसी भी राज्य का कोई भी कृषि उत्पन्न बाजार समिति कानून किसी व्यापारी को एमएसपी से नीचे माल खरीदने के आरोप में कोई सजा नहीं देता है और ना ही किसानों को ऐसी कोई गारंटी पहले उपलब्ध थी. #APMCAct
केंद्र की सरकार एमएसपी पर अपनी एजेंसी के मार्फत कृषि उपज की खरीदी करती रही है. केन्द्र सरकार पहले ही जाहिर कर चुकी है कि उसकी खरीदी पहले की ही तरह शुरू रहनेवाली है.

#Finland's lawmakers adopted the UN convention on drugs as-is in 1971. Harry Anslingers #racist legacy reached these northern shores one vote past the bar.

Ever since #Cannabis has been the #media evil, where #alcohol kills thousands yearly.

#cannabis #denial #doublestandard
#Finland's local media has been working hard lately.

The local papers in co-operation with associations like #YAD have been generating lot of articles on how #cannabis is somehow responsible for #polydrug-use, or #abuse of drugs among #young people.

#Alcohol never mentioned. 😅
Meanwhile, Statistics #Finland's numbers on kids reveal, that 44% of finnish 14 to 16 year-olds use #alcohol.

This is never mentioned in any of the papers writing #exploitation and #scare stories on #cannabis.

Neither are the other abused #drugs: rx #medication, #amphetamines.

The Empirization of China

The #Chinese want to be an #Empire and that too in a hurry. But many perished in this quest. #GreatBritain is no more a empire. #USA is also facing heat in #multipolar world in #PostColdWar era.
@narendramodi @MEAIndia
1. With cunning and ruthlessness #China was well on track. It might have become a #GlobalEmpire within another 20 to 30 years. But its own shrowdy , anti democratic and #AntiHuman policies leading to its own #disaster.
2.However in their desperation and over eagerness, China it seems has overplayed its hand on many fronts. Now, by triggering, concealing and manipulating a #CoronaPandemic, China has not only made its dream of empire untenable, it will probably destroy China.
