All about the #G7 summit and #India’s role in it…

By @Varnika38964255
The #G7 is an international association of the world's ‘advanced’ economies, which dominate global commerce and the international financial system. G7 formed the association in 1975 and includes Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
#Russia joined the G8 in 1998 but was booted out in 2014 over the annexation of Crimea.

The #G7 has strengthened international economic and security policies and progressive discussion of crucial global issues such as climate change and gender equality.

"We have struggled with how to create a social and environmental justice platform that could unite vast numbers of the world’s people. The breakthrough has arrived. It’s a brilliant idea: simple but systemic"
- @GeorgeMonbiot
on #DebtForClimate
"Those who demand better pay & conditions for workers & justice for people, have been pitched by demagogues & corporate lobbyists against those who demand a habitable planet. It has proved too easy to stop people uniting around crucial issues. [But] The breakthrough has arrived."
Rich nations owe a massive climate debt to poorer nations for the devastating impacts of the fuels we have burned. Yet they have no intention of paying for the #lossanddamage caused. Instead, poor countries are deemed to owe massive financial debts to the rich nations.

These video scenes of #brutal #LawEnforcement are from around the world and Australia figures prominently.
It is #dehumanising and mentally debilitating to see this and to comprehend the #inhumanity
Is it right to assault citizens like this?
The #G7summit was a cosy affair. Social distancing for the cameras and free-for-all off-it. #Scomo was in the midst of this #Cornwall retreat to plan the next phase of #Lockstep.
Do any of them appear concerned about the “pannddemmic” ?
#Scomo returns from his #G7Summit2021 all buoyed in #Lockstep and then NSW goes into #Lockdown followed by restrictions in other states.
Do you see fingerprints on this?
Is #GladysCluster trying too hard to convince?
See where we are on cases curve??

The G7 is a reunion of imperialists, corrupt and thieves. Their endless promises to make the world a better place are empty and lies.
These rats dare to say they care about the planet and the people, but in reality, they don't care about anyone else besides themselves and the lobbies that pays their election campaign.
The planet is dying and the biodiversity is collapsing while our leaders continue with business as usual. The poor are hungry while the rich gorge themselves. We will not let them annihilate our future without fighting.

Dank Joe #Biden haben die @G7 dieses Jahr wieder die Chance & damit auch die Pflicht, positive Impulse zu setzen. Als Vorsitzende der Auswärtigen Ausschüsse der #G7-Staaten haben wir unseren Regierungen sieben Ziele formuliert, die jetzt im Vordergrund stehen müssen. #G7Summit
Erstes Ziel: Wir müssen aus der Pandemie echte Lehren ziehen & uns gemeinsam besser auf zukünftige Gesundheitskrisen vorbereiten. Denn #Covid19 hat unsere Gesellschaften geschwächt & unendliches Leid über unzählige Familien gebracht. Auch die globale Wirtschaft hat gelitten. #G7
Zweites Ziel: Wir erwarten von unseren Regierungen, dass sie die weltweite Verteilung von #Impfstoffen organisieren & dabei alle ihren Anteil übernehmen. Die #Pandemie wird erst zu Ende sein, wenn das Virus überall zurückgedrängt wurde & alle Menschen geschützt sind. #G7

1/. My heart broke a little this morning

“The northern white rhino - which survived 55 million years & saw ice ages, earthquakes, meteor strikes & bore testament to innumerable historical changes - could not survive humans” @VertigoWarrior

This rhino is now functionally extinct Image
2/. It’s because we love this planet so much, that we weep at its destruction

To be honest, my heart breaks a little every day

But it also fills with joy

Our hearts are designed that way

They're built to break & they're built to fill with joy, each day
3/. In 1944, Churchill described Nazi atrocities as "a crime without a name"

Soon after, the term 'genocide' was coined

Is it time to recognise ‘ecocide’ as an intl crime?

Is it time for all of us to start getting ACTIVE to protect our fragile planet?

New: Trump won’t be hosting the G-7 summit this fall. That’s a good thing.… by me @PostOpinions
@PostOpinions Trump's Monday comments came as a complete surprise to most of his own staff, not to mention the governments of the other 10 countries involved. #G7 #G7Summit #CampDavid…
France and Germany had already informed the White House they would not attend. Four other countries were invited: Australia, Brazil, India and South Korea. As of yesterday, those governments had no idea whether the event was on.…

It’s that time of the year when we look back on how India charted new pathways in #Diplomacy and left an imprint on the global agenda.
The year began with the 10th #IndiaJapan Strategic Dialogue, which provided a platform for blossoming of deep rooted ties into a special strategic & global partnership
The then Japanese Foreign Minister @konotaromp attended the summit along with the former EAM Smt. Sushma Swaraj

The 4th edition of @raisinadialogue, a flagship annual geopolitical and geostrategic conference, was organised by @orfonline and @MEAIndia

#G7Summit apperead to be a success of mediation efforts when #Trump expressed readiness to meet Rouhani “if the circumstances were correct”. Yet a day later, #Rouhani & #Zarif took a step back, and #Khamenei's website forbade Negotiations with the #US
What happened? One option is that #Khamenei wasn't fully aware that #Zarif’s G7 overture would turn into a high-profile effort to resume talks, and decided to block it. He has already done so to Ahmadinejad in 09', when he negotiated over the TRR deal
Alternatively, the reversal might also stem from Trump's narrative that #Iran will soon be compelled to enter negotiations out of weakness. Such rhetoric tends to be a red flag for the regime, since it hinders it from saving face

"I feel grateful that he feels we should take care of the forest and the nature of the Amazon."

This Brazilian indigenous Kayapo leader is thanking France's President Macron for putting the #AmazonFires front and center of the #G7Summit
Bolivia’s President Evo Morales has enlisted the military to fight the #AmazonFires.

It’s so far:
- Contaminated local water sources
- Caused smoke-related health issues in children and elderly
- Destroyed plantations
"It's like this every year, it's smoke, it's illegal burning."

A farm manager in Brazil says the Amazon forest needs to be preserved as firefighters struggle to contain the #AmazonFires

Sarah Kendzior: The moment Trump came in, he's been using executive power to benefit himself in violation of the emoluments clause. What we're seeing now is another chapter b/c they won't close the book.

@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation Sarah Kendzior: It'b been one week since I was on your show, talking about Trump's wanting to buy Greenland. In that week he's proclaimed himself the Messiah, he's wanted to nuke hurricanes, & wants next G7 at his resort.
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation #G7Summit
@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation Sarah Kendzior: It's amazing to me that it's not more urgent & that more people aren't working harder to get Trump impeached.

But, what first helped create the “illusion” that was Mother Teresa?

The answer: Malcolm Muggeridge ‘s 1969 documentary & 1971 book titled “Something Beautiful for God.”
