The French community in the 🇬🇧 is "one of the most important ones in the world, with more than 143 000 French citizens signed up on consular registers" - Europe Minister @NathalieLoiseau addresses the 🇫🇷 community at the @ifru_london
"If there are so many of you which are established here, it is a sign that our talents are sought after and appreciated. You bring a '🇫🇷 touch', so loved in many different fields"
"Beyond exiting the #EU, #France will remain a key partner for the #UK, in every single sector."
three major developments over the past day demonstrate how #Europe seeks to shape the global #Internet. if you only focus on US reg, dominated by politics & not law, you’re missing a major part of the action.
Who is this fascist and white supremacist and what has he accomplished over the past year other than go on a tour of Europe where he told fellow fascists not to be ashamed of being called “racist”? This normalizing of fascism and white supremacy is a disgrace.
And this is the same magazine that ran this headline. A gathering of war criminals was “the biggest resistance meeting yet.”
Steve Bannon speaking to #France's far-right National Front party: "Let them call you racist. Let them call you xenophobes... wear it as a badge of honor." He is a fascist & white supremacist: anyone sharing a stage with him is an enabler. And remember all the oxygen he gets e.g.

J'ai lu "Essai sur la nature du commerce en général" de Cantillon (1755), voici un #thread sur des trucs que j'ai appris / que j'ai trouvés intéressants / des extraits choisis. 1/
2/ Bien qu'"Essai" ait été probablement rédigé vers 1730, il n'a été publié qu'en 1755 suite à une forte censure en #France, il a été diffusé sous la forme d'un manuscrit inédit entre son achèvement et sa publication. Il est considéré comme le 1er traité complet sur l'#économie
3/ Le type de monnaie utilisé n'est pas décrété mais provient de l'usage. L'or et l'argent sont de facto les meilleures solutions (en 1730. Et en 2018? quid des #cryptomonnaies ?)
New Foreign Secretary @Jeremy_Hunt is in Paris to discuss Brexit & bilateral relations. Can he expect any favours? (mini thread)
1. The good news: France values UK relationship – ally in Middle East, Africa, UN and NATO & partner on intelligence, counter-terrorism. Discussions take place at bilateral level, so largely unaffected by Brexit.
2. The flip-side: France clear that Brexit negotiations are led by the EU. Its position hasn’t changed: UK cannot expect same benefits or preferential treatment. UK-EU trade will inevitably be weaker.
From #Pericles to #Trump: A brief history of the West in 21 tweets (including this tweet). Purpose is to show how through the muddled history there is a direct ideological train connecting Western Civ that is meaningful to talk abt. Obvs lots is missing. it's a tweetstorm. (1/21)
753 BCE: A little town called #ROME is founded on the banks of the Tiber in #Italy. It will invent the word Emperor & become the standard for all future western empires. Its language is still used on the seal of the American President, along w/ its symbol of the Eagle. (2/21)
387 BCE: Plato founds his Academy for philosophy in #Athens. In between bouts of mansplaining & homoeroticism they trailblaze the concept of using logic & reason to make sense of the world & develop tools for doing so we still use today. (3/21)
Tens of thousands have gathered in Paris and to demand #IranRegimeChange#FreeIran2018. Given the last 6 months of escalating protests in #Iran, the idea is gathering steam and could be past a point of no return.
Belgium prosecutor’s statement on the foiled terrorist attack planned for the #FreeIran2018 conference. Found with 500gm of TATP explosives. Their contact was an Iranian national working at the Austrian ministry in Vienna - where Prez Rouhani is scheduled to visit shortly. #Iran

Jun 25, 2009 After President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won the Iranian Election, riots and protests erupted in #Tehran, The western media was quick to report on this #PSYOPS.
#US politicians, #Israel, #SaudiArabia & media dream of #RegimeChange in #Iran.
Jan 3, 2018 The more intense and violent demonstrations in Iran have given way to patriotic rallies with thousands of Iranians shouting pro-government slogans.
Jan 3,2018 Are the protests in #Iran spontaneous, or are they the result of another #RegimeChange operation?#TheCorbettReport James explores the past, present & future of #US and #Israel-i involvement in Iran, & the attempts to foment unrest in the country.
1/ Think of the number of people who know details concerning as yet unprosecuted @ClintonFdn FRAUDS---how many of these have been cooperating with state, federal, foreign governments @csthetruth?
2/ Then think of the number of accounting firms and professional advisers (especially including law firms) that enabled or conspired to cover up the @ClintonFdn FRAUDS, "thinking" perhaps that @HillaryClinton would be a "bankable", malleable president
3/ Then consider how many governments, crooked donors, and hackers may have penetrated abysmal "control systems" at @ClintonFdn and affiliated "charities" to become aware of CROOKED, multiparty FRAUDS and CORRUPTION
In his review, Holland Cotter rewrites Swahili history in a way that wipes out the history of over 5million people by claiming that the Swahili language “belongs to no particular ethnic group or place” yet #IamSwahili. #BeingSwahili@nytimes
Is #Israel an '#Apartheid' state? This #UN report says yes
If being an apartheid state means committing inhumane acts, systematic oppression & domination by one racial group over another, then Israel is guilty, a UN panel has determined in a new report wapo.st/2m5aHoJ?tid=ss…
#Apartheid is a term once associated with #SouthAfrica's white-rule system, but now represents a broad term for crimes against humanity under international law & the Rome Statute that set up International Criminal Court @ICC, said the report in its executive summary on Wednesday
#Israelis who find the term #Apartheid inaccurate & inflammatory when applied to their conflict with the #Palestinians, immediately slammed the report-A government spokesman even compared it to #Nazi tabloid Der Sturmer which promoted Nazi propaganda & was virulently #Antisemitic
Ce sont 20 personnes qui m'ont prise en stop sur 12 heures avant hier pour ma traversée Montpellier-Creuse sans autoroute. Je vais essayer de raviver le souvenir de chacun d'entre eux sur ce fil. #autostop#France

#DW#TimSabastien:'The fact is there was no intensive fire by #Hamas gunmen was there? And we know that bc by the evening your Army spokesman #JonathanConricus said"our troops have not taken any sustained direct fire"
So why are u misrepresenting your situation?'#GazaMassacre🇵🇸
#GazaMassacre #DW#TimSebastien:Your military spokesperson said several,that's not dozens? #Oren:Last time there were 12 different protest points
DW:Again you're very diff. from your spokesperson?
Oren:Let's leave that aside
DW:I'm not leaving aside facts, do I leave aside facts?
1/ En bas des actes royaux, le roi de #France écrivait la formule : "Car tel est notre plaisir". Cette formulation fut ensuite copieusement instrumentalisée pour nous expliquer que le roi était un tyran qui n'agissait que selon des caprices et un pouvoir totalement personnel...
2/ Or c'est bien entendu totalement faux et encore une fois de la vulgaire propagande. Le mot "plaisir", qui vient du latin "placere", est ici justement utilisé pour expliquer que la décision est réfléchie et qu'elle se fait pour l'intérêt général, et après une délibération.
3/ En effet, le roi de France ne prend nullement ses décisions tout seul de manière arbitraire mais après avoir consulté ses conseils et ses ministres. Et tous les actes royaux doivent obligatoirement être enregistrés par le #Parlement de Paris et les autres parlements de France.
