Stalin's Plan of Forced Collectivization and the Ukrainian Famine of 1932-1933 | 🧵Considered by many historians to be Stalin's most horrifying campaign, "forced collectivization" was the well-organized plan to crush the Ukrainian peasants by massive starvation... #Ukraine confiscating all available food throughout the regions of Ukraine, the northern Caucasus, and the lower Volga river area in 1932 to 1933. The effect of this "artificial" man-made famine was the complete breaking of the peasants' will to resist collectivization of farmland..
leaving the population politically, socially, and psychologically traumatized. Stalin's plan and the methods by which it was carried out are almost too horrifying to imagine: the execution or deportation of any man, woman, or child...

The #Apocalypse has started. #Corona/#Covid is the first horse. The rider wears a crown (corona), has a #toxon bow ("#toxin" is a derivative->poison arrows). What went into billions of arms? Little poison arrows.

#TheRedHorse, 2nd horse of the #Apocalypse: #War. Red, the color of blood, color of #communism. What do we see shaping up? War by #Russia and #China. Ukraine, #Taiwan, the World.

A full third of mankind will die, if we align the 2nd horse with the 6th trumpet of #Revelation 9.
#TheBlackHorse, 3rd horse of the #Apocalypse. A pair of balances, "A measure of wheat for a penny". A penny's was a day's wages. Meaning: a bread for a full day's work.

#Ukraine remembers #Holodomor - Stalin's man-made #famine in 1932-1933

Largest deaths were recorded in Kyiv, Cherkasy, Poltava regions: from 1000 of people approximately 192,3-232,5 have died during this time.

🇺🇦 population reduced by 25% that time, 33% of victims- children
Today in Ukraine, the memory of the victims of the Holodomor is commemorated

In the 20th century, Ukrainians experienced three famines: 1921-1923, 1932-1933, and the 1946-1947 famine.
The most extensive was the famine of 1932-1933 - it is called the genocide of the Ukrainian people, carried out by the Stalinist regime.

The Holodomor was preceded by the forcible collectivization of agriculture, the "dispossession" of peasants, a grain procurement campaign, /3

Current news on #food & #climate:

➡️ USA: *both* wheat crops -spring & winter wheat- in trouble

➡️Chile: more than 1/2 of the country's population in areas suffering "severe water scarcity"

➡️Australia: 'Biblical' flooding causes near-total loss of regional soybean crops
All these impacts will get worse

& worse

& 𝗺𝘂𝗰𝗵 worse

with unmitigated climate change

On the other hand, what happens when fossil fuel emissions are cut?

Immediate boosts in crop yields!

Something to consider in the midst of a global food crisis?

We — the Monitoring Group of the Black Sea Institute for Strategic Studies and BlackSeaNews — predict that the world will soon have to face and get acquainted (except for 🇷🇺 gas blackmail, which everyone finally understood) with 🇷🇺 grain blackmail.
That is, so far they have almost cut 🇺🇦 off from the world #grain market (our grain exports are currently about 500,000 tons per month, before the war — 5 million tons per month).
They will not 100% block #Ukraine’s grain exports through the #BlackSea ports until the end of the war, no matter how “deeply concerned” the @UN and other international organizations are about the prospects of #famine in #African countries.

🧵This thread is about the beneficiaries receiving food packages from our food drive for #Kunar province. ⛔️People in #Afghanistan R in worst situation than what we hear. If you can’t donate, RT/share in networks, spread it. @ASEELApp @NasratKhalid
My team went to Tango Camp, a village where more than 400 families live. 50 families (15 widows & 35 ultra-poor families) were identified. The team will continue identifying more families for the food drive and will be added to this #Thread
#AfghanistanCrisis #Famine #Afghan
The team went door to door & inside the houses. This little brave girl explained their financial situation. Her father goes out every morning in hopes to find work. He returns empty hands. They have little food to survive. Plz help such families with food. 3/X #SaveAfghanistan

1. Gentle rant thread: When I see comments posted below stories on the humanitarian crisis in #Afghanistan and many tweets on here, it makes me sad to witness people equate ordinary Afghans, millions of human beings just trying to survive impossible odds, with the #Taliban.
2. [I have spent my whole career trying to draw attention to the fact that wars are fought by a tiny minority of people, amongst a massive group who feel the worst impact of it. They are the civilians. I worry in no small degree sometimes that I’ve failed in that.] #afghanistan
3. The impact of war is increasingly causing economic collapse and #famine. Whether on purpose (in places like #SouthSudan and #Syria), as an unintended side effect (as in #Afghanistan) or somewhere between (like in #Yemen). So these conflict induced crises are@not going away.

This is a second video of the same shot of #Eritrea and #Ethiopia's forces. (shared by @mvreisen). Several Twitter accounts have alleged a 'handover' of weapons did not occur or that video was 'fake'.

As part of my #OSINT @bellingcat homework, I've set out to show why it isn't.
This is the second video was also shared by @mvreisen.

The footage was captured at 07:08am on 5th November in #Eritrea, only days after fighting broke out in the #Tigray region.

The region, and #Ethiopia, have spiralled into a brutal civil war.
Eritrean forces have taken part in the conflict, and have been accused of committing war crimes in #Tigray. First, the location. Where is it? According to the tweet shared by @mvreisen, the video is located in Mukuti, #Eritrea.

The Irish Genocide | Friday 30 March, 1849 hundreds of starving people walked 19km from Louisburgh to Delphi Lodge in Mayo, they were directed there to see the relief officers to get tickets for food. There was a heavy storm at the time. 1/3
Dozens of people perished on the journey, many bodies were thrown into the lake in the days after as a water burial. On arrival at Delphi Lodge the poor were told that the officers were not to be disturbed as they were eating their dinner. 2/3

Reintroducing #TheMasterplan in time for new year

Whenever the West plans to destabilise a certain region or regime, they mobilize the MSM, AO and HR groups in a concerted manner.

1/The media will start a campaign that prepares the ground for future interventions...
...while swaying public opinion towards the needed direction. They start labeling the government as #totalitarian if not elected, and #populist if elected. Terms such as #genocide #EthnicCleansing #famine would get bandied around. They cultivate a new "reality" on the ground.
2/ Aid organizations would join the chorus and paint a picture of impending humanitarian doom. From one day to the next the number of people facing famine grows in leaps and bounds. The talk shifts towards #unfettered humanitarian access and humanitarian corridors

📽️@UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to #Food, @MichaelFakhri, delivers a special video message ahead of our #CFS47 side event tomorrow:

💡 Global Response to #COVID19 #Hunger Crisis: Developing Effective Policy Responses through the @UN_CFS [🧵thread]

"COVID19 has not only been a public health crisis, but it has also generated a hunger crisis. The virus is new, but it has been predictably harshest on marginalised people. In fact, the world was falling behind on realising the right to food even before the current pandemic." /2
"Even with new vaccines, it will be some time before the global #health situation stabilises & it will be at least a decade before the world recovers economically. Meanwhile, Member States and international orgs have not yet come together to tackle the looming hunger crisis." /3

Going on 6 years of war & 4 years of @realDonaldTrump's disregard for the lives of millions of Yemenis, @JoeBiden has promised a policy reset. He's repeatedly called for an end to US participation & weapons in the #Yemen war. #YemenCantWait…
To end U.S. complicity in this war, @JoeBiden must start his policy reset on day one by stopping weapons deliveries to the Saudi-UAE coalition, including Trump’s recently proposed $23 billion sale to the #UAE. #YemenCantWait #StopArmingUAE…
@JoeBiden must work with Congress to pass a Yemen War Powers Resolution prohibiting intel sharing, logistical support & spare parts transfers for coalition airstrikes. Such a demonstration of support from Congress will help Biden pressure warring parties to end the violence.

There is a growing body of evidence-based studies that show the collateral damage being caused by the current approach is causing devastating harm that will be felt for years ahead.

Growth (in the body) & longevity are at fundamental odds with eachother.

We’ve been constantly told that fasting isn’t good - “eats away at muscle” or “makes you store fat/burn less calories”

Bodybuilders will continuously eat to put on muscle.

If not to burn excess fat, which none of us get to do if we are constantly eating,

what was the purpose for allowing humans to store fat as energy?

Our cells consistently cycle between growth and repair, depending on how often we are feeding it.
The only thing that has been proven to extend an animals life in multiple longevity studies is calorie restriction.

This is because you’re taking away from growth and shifting it over to cell maintenance / repair mode.

In this #COVID19 crisis, some worry about having a eugenics nutjob like Cummings in charge... Before rubbishing this as alarmist, please consider Charles Trevelyan, the Treasury official placed in charge of relief during the Irish famine in the1840s. ⬇️😠✊🦠 #ToriesOut 🇪🇺🇮🇪
We tend to assume that our government would *never* consciously do anything to damage its own people... Trevelyan, however, took the psychopathic view that the famine was divine intervention on the feckless poor... ⬇️ 😖✊🇪🇺🇮🇪 #history #famine #Ireland #capitalism
This was at a time when - even during the years of famine - Ireland was exporting around 300,000 tons of grain to England per annum. Fully *one million* Irish people are believed to have died due to the famine, and around two million emigrated. 😠✊🇪🇺🇮🇪 #resist #ToriesOut
