Whatever the visiting #G20 dignitaries may say in public, the Prime Minister's Office, Ministers and others in the Indian Govt must be under no illusion, about what they must be thinking in private about the regime that makes so much about #G20Presidency
This was most aptly put by @AndrewMMacLeod when he spoke frankly in the famous @TimesNow panel dicussion. Every G20 embassy in Chankyapuri must have sent a diplomatic cable back to their capitals and Chancelleries detailing events of the recent days.
Under the heading, "India Govt acting irrationally" they would have chronicled
- the withdrawal of security barriers at UK embassy in Delhi
- the convenient court verdict on Rahul Gandhi
- the news blackout of the 18-party protest in Delhi
- the continued coverage ONLY of 1 man.

1/6. The government of #India's media and Internet blackout in Punjab (home to a large Sikh population) should not be tolerated by the international community.

It's time #Ottawa takes the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to task for this.…
2/6. This is not the first time the #BJP government has engaged in egregiously undemocratic behaviour - the ongoing human rights violations and atrocities in Kashmir are just one example.
3/6. The #BJP is an extension of the Hindutva nationalist org, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which wants to shape #India into a country run by and for its Hindu majority.

The ICC Indictment of Putin: Consequences for Russia and the World
#ICC #Putin #WarCrimes #GlobalPolitics #InternationalRelations #Europe #Russia #NATO #UnitedNations #G20 #HumanRights
The recent International Criminal Court (ICC) indictment of Vladimir Putin on charges of war crimes may seem like a symbolic victory, but its impact goes far beyond symbolism. 1/16
While it is unlikely that Putin will ever stand trial in The Hague, the indictment will have significant consequences for Russia's relationship with the rest of the world and for politics within Russia itself. 2/16

Thread: Protest by Indian Farmers and G20 Meeting

Despite the Punjab government stating that no protests are allowed ahead of the #G20Summit in the state, farmers' unions held a protest to oppose global event in #Amritsar. The farmers' unions claimed that the #G20..,

Bitter: Polizei hätte die Tat in #Hamburg verhindern können!

Täter besaß die Waffe legal. LKA bekam am 24.1.23 anonymen Hinweis und wurde konkret vor dem Täter gewarnt: Dieser sei psychisch erkrankt, habe großen Hass auf Zeugen Jehovas und seinen Wahn in einem Buch festgehalten.
Absolut grotesk: Bei Internetrecherche konnten Beamte das Buch nicht finden, obwohl dies u.a. bereits bei Amazon & auf Webseite des Täters öffentlich war. Polizeipräsident behauptet man hätte das Buch nicht recherchieren können, was Experten sogar bestätigt hätten.
Er schließt aber nicht aus, dass es irgendwelche Suchmaschinen gibt, die das Ergebnis vielleicht irgendwo auf Seite 700 angezeigt hätten. „Mitarbeiter der Waffenbehörde sind keine OSINT-Recherche Experten“. Man könne den Behörden keinen Vorwurf machen.…

Kaladan Multi Modal Transit Transport Project is largest & most strategically important Indian investment in Myanmar which aims to connect NE with Kolkata through Sittwe Port of Myanmar via Bay of Bengal that will provide valuable alternate route and considerably cut travel time
When completed, the KMTTT will shorten the current time taken to transport goods from Kolkata to Mizoram by three-four days, and the distance by around 950 km.

This is the reason that KMMTT is called “Future Gateway to South East Asia.
It will also serve as cornerstone of India’s “Look East Policy” aiming to expand India’s economic and political influence in Southeast Asia.

बहुत ध्यान से नीचे की तालिका पढ़िये जो कि G20 जी २० देशों की है विशेष तौर पर प्रतिव्यक्ति जीडीपी , मानव संसाधन विकास सूचकांक और जीडीपी के प्रतिशत घाटे के आँकड़े
प्रतिव्यक्ति जीडीपी में हमारा नंबर सबसे नीचे है और मानवसंसाधन विकास सूचकांक में भी।
तीसरे महत्वपूर्ण आँकड़े में भी हम सबसे फिसड्डी हैं।
अब यह तो बताने की ज़रूरत रही नहीं है कि जी २० की अध्यक्षता का मौक़ा हर साल किसी नये देश को मिलता है यानी २० साल बाद यह नंबर हरेक देश को मिलता है।
तो सरकारी प्रचार अब यह है कि भारत लोकतंत्र की मॉं है , कैसे ? २०० साल अंग्रेज़ी राज में ग़ुलामी थी उसके पहले क़रीब ४००-४५० साल कब लोकतंत्र रहा ? उसके पहले राजों रजवाड़ों का असभ्य क्रूरशासन था ! तो लोकतंत्र की माँ कब रहे ?

#Hijab #HijabBan in educational institutions, the #Courts and #G20 What's the link?
A short thread.
@LiveLawIndia reported that the Supreme Court will look at the Hijab Ban case soon
When the Judges look at it again, I would submit that they should consider it solely on the basis of individual rights based on personal choice in the matter of dress and attire where the choice poses neither threat noor risk of harm to any third person.…
To bring religion into the question before the Court would be to conflate the matter beyond logic. It is not the Court's role in a secular democracy to decide matters of religion or religious practice - questions that are best left in the private domain for individuals to decide.

So #G20 Foreign Ministers meeting ended without an agreed joint Communique.
There was a Chair's Summary and Outcome document (see link) but not a joint agreed unanimous statement. Indian diplomacy could not overcome entrenched positions.…
Of the 24 paragraphs in the Summary and Outcome document, "Paragraphs 3 and 4 of this document, as taken from the G20 Bali Leaders’ Declaration (15-16 November 2022), were agreed to by all member countries except Russia and China."

🇷🇺💬❗La Cancillería de la Federación de Rusia informa:

Fragmento del discurso del Ministro de Exteriores ruso, Serguéi Lavrov, durante la reunión de los cancilleres del #G20

Me gustaría pedir disculpas por el comportamiento inapropiado de varias delegaciones occidentales que Image
convirtieron el trabajo sobre la agenda del G20 en una farsa, en un intento de trasladar su responsabilidad por los fracasos de la política económica a otros, especialmente a Rusia.
Resulta curioso que en esa dirección se esforzaran precisamente los países que admitieron haber
saboteado la resolución de la ONU sobre Ucrania de 2015 mientras atiborraron de armas a este país para la guerra contra Rusia.
Su rusofobia agresiva parece especialmente salvaje cuando uno recuerda que los miembros occidentales del G20 nunca se lamentaron en sus reuniones de los

Entre 2021 & 2022, multiplication par 2 des subventions mondiales aux
❎énergies renouvelables ? NON
❎l'économie verte ? NON
❎la rénovation des bâtiments ? NON

NON, ce sont les subventions mondiales aux ENERGIES FOSSILES : 1000 Mds $ pour aggraver le réchauffement climatique
En plus de ces subventions à la consommation des énergies fossiles, l'AIE a recensé plus de 500 Mds $ de dépenses budgétaires pour réduire la facture énergétique des consommateurs en 2022 : l'essentiel, soit 350 Mds$, l'a été en Europe, dont la France avec son bouclier tarifaire.
On rappellera que :
➡️2009 #Pittsburgh : les pays du #G20 s'engagent à mettre fin aux subventions aux énergies fossiles

➡️2021 #COP26 : les Etats s'engagent à "supprimer progressivement [...] les subventions inefficaces aux combustibles fossiles".

Fin de la blague.
