#Azerbaijan launched a massive attack on #Artsakh #Karabakh Republic this morning, uses hitting drones against civilian buildings.
#Armenia Media reports - #Azerbaijan lost 2 helicopters, 3 tanks and 3 drones up to 9am.
* #Azerbaijan Ministry of Defense announces "counter-attack on #Karabakh" after claiming there are people wounded on their side.
In 2016 #AprilWar they covered their attack as "counter attack" too.
Another proof - the attack was planned & well prepared by Azerbaijan - All of a sudden #Turkey state TRT Haber news correspondent appears right in the epicenter of #Azerbaijan positions along #Karabakh. Via Varuzhan Geghamyan Image

75 years ago, @UN was founded to unite the world to confront the challenges facing all of humanity. With growing inequality, climate crisis, #COVID19, toxic nationalism, and ongoing conflict - it is clear that the promise of the UN remains as important as ever. #UN75
We celebrate the @UN #UN75. Its humanitarian efforts have saved lives, it has brokered and kept peace in conflict areas around the world, promoted #HumanRights, and created & championed an agenda for sustainable development. #PeaceDay #GlobalGoals Image
But @UN's promise remains unfulfilled. Globally, #WomensRights are being rolled back, women human rights defenders are under attack. 25 yrs since the Beijing Declaration, & 20 yrs since UNSC Res. 1325, govts aren't meeting commitments to #WomenPeaceSecurity & gender equality. Image

Read the letter by 123 #MEK members and former Prisoners of War… to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, of repeated defamations by @bbcpersian quoting MOIS agents as well as inviting UN Special Rapporteur to visit Ashraf-3
We write to inform you of the continuous harassment and psychological torture by the religious fascism ruling #Iran also its intel services and media against us and our families.
We urge you to assign .@JavaidRehman to meet with us in Albania as PoWs.
We were PoW during 1980s, in the Iran-Iraq war. After the war we decided freely to join the National Liberation Army of Iran/The People's Mojahedin Org #MEK.
The Int'l Committee for the Red Cross @ICRC used to meet us regularly. Last call was on Sept 16, 1992

So it turns out that not only is @zoom_us' #FacialRecognition #algorithm so #racist it chops black people's heads off...

..but @Twitter's image processing #algorithms are #racist too:

It's getting to the point where we need an industry reboot; if #SiliconValley genuinely wants to build '#EthicslAI', it must delete 'em all and start again. Respecting #HumanRights this time.

With no foreseeable end in sight, #Israel’s blockade on #Gaza not only runs afoul of international #law, but it has also already been on the radar of the #UN and #humanrights groups for well over a decade.
by @HomePalestine… #Palestine #FreePalestine
Today, few #Palestinians remain in the #fishing trade – and about ninety-five percent of these live below the #poverty line, with little hope of improvement.
by @HomePalestine… #Israel #FreePalestine
Just as with the last three major Israeli incursions into #Gaza, #Israel’s stated motive – to stop incoming projectiles – conceals a long-term ambition: to seize more land with fewer #Palestinians on it.

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. This section is called: Building A Fair System of International Trade for Our Worker. Only one party has a specific plan for rebuilding the great American #MiddleClass. ..the other has a loyalty pledge to a lying con man. 1/11
For too long, the global trading system has failed to keep its promises to American workers. Too many corporations have rushed to outsource jobs, and too many countries have broken their promises to be honest and transparent partners. 2/11 #DemPartyPlatform #GlobalTrade
The #COVID19 pandemic has shown the risks of relying too heavily on global supply chains, as shutdowns and shortages have created chaos for workers and consumers and made our public health response even more challenging. 3/11 #DemPartyPlatform #Shutdowns

Just before the psychologist told me whether or not the multi-disciplinary team had concluded I was #autistic, she asked me what I thought about getting an #autism diagnosis.
While I was being assessed I had done a huge amount of #research on #autism, I’d also joined an online forum and had conversations with many autistic people, and I’d reviewed the whole of my life from an autistic perspective.
Being autistic was a much better explanation for exceptional aspects of my life than anything else I’d ever found. Not just difficulties, challenges and disasters but abilities, achievements and triumphs.

Thank you for having me on the @ELRAgeSpeaks Radio Show @MervChangeAGEnt. You are a wonderful host.
If anyone is interested in listening to my dulcet tone 😂 you have come to the right place.
Other reasons to give it a listen:
1. It’s sexual health week, so it’s my annual reminder that many older adults are sexually active, enjoy a variety of sexual acts, take sexual risks, but can face structural and personal barriers to realising their sexual agency and expression #SHW20 #SHW2020
2. You get to hear my Barnsley accent 😱

The international community’s silence and inaction are tantamount to a green light to the regime in #Iran to continue its atrocities. #NoImpunity4Mullahs
@fifamedia @wrestling @Olympics @USAdarFarsi @mbachelet Image
It is imperative 4 the UNSC @UN High Commissioner 4 #HumanRights & EU to take urgent action 2 save the lives of prisoners in #Iran. They should set up an international fact-finding mission 2 investigate the killings in November 2019 & visit Iranian prisons.

@UNHumanRights Chief @mbachelet says #Myanmar disagrees with her office's findings on #HumanRights abuses/#violations but she renews her offer to engage with government as that's the best way to address issue. She also hopes to see women cabinet ministers after Nov 8 elections ImageImageImageImage
@UNHumanRights @mbachelet calls on #Myanmar to achieve successful & fair #elections for democratic transition by allowing all sectors of population including those living in #Rakhine #Chin #Shan to vote without discrimination. Regrets no steps taken to allow #Rohingyas to vote ImageImageImageImage
@UNHumanRights @mbachelet offers #Myanmar assistance in areas like #constitutional changes strengthening civilian/democratic control, activities to end #military impunity, new national identity based on tolerance/diversity & address statelessness to tackle #humanrights #abuses Image

N.Ireland is once again the rope in the UK/EU tug of war.

(we've been here before, several times 🙄😩)

Both claim to be acting on the grounds of the Good Friday/Belfast 1998 Agreement.

Both have a point…

But it’s complicated.

A twitter thread.
#Brexit #GFA
The Belfast/Good Friday #Agreement has 3 strands.

These strands represent the lines of division that gave rise to the #conflict:
* unionist/nationalist within NI,
* north/south across the border, &
* British/Irish.

The B/GFA formalised cooperation across these lines.
Crucially, all are #interdependent.

Underpinning it all is the British-Irish relationship

That relationship was improved & became closer as a result of being ‘partners in the EU’ 🇪🇺

The EU was also a go-to model for some of that cross-border & multilevel cooperation.

1/For those who live out of the US, It’s crucial to know that democracy in the US is a big MESS. #HumanRights & #CivilRights are far worse than Islamic states.
@TheJusticeDep is the source of #INJUSTICE because judges& even lawyers whose job is to defend
@POTUS @marklevinshow
2/defendants are fully under control of those who know their secrets (CORRUPT agents @CIA @FBI..who abuse power in their political& personal gains), all work in a vicious cycle, CORRUPT agents frame up people, then judge, prosecutor& lawyer intentionally destroy their lives.
3/In fact, what is happening in US Judicial system is not only an outrageous assault on human dignity, but destruction of whole humanity by violation of people’s Civil& Constitutional Rights& imposing psychological stresses & finacial, physical damages.

(A very short thread) (1) The most concerning thing about reading the Boris #HumanRights thread is the lack of understanding of the HRA and the ECHR. The ECHR is not an EU document. It was a commitment to stop a recurrence of fascism and the spread of Stalinism.
(2) It was Winston Churchill, François Mitterrand and Konrad Adenauer along with Bishops, business owners, trade unionists and academics who came together and asked for a charter of rights to provide universal protection. A large part of the drafting came from a Brit.
(3) The Grandfather of #HumanRights in Europe was David Patrick Maxwell Fyfe, 1st Earl of Kilmuir. A Conservative politician, an Attorney General and a prosecutor at Nuremberg. The ECHR is a British led international human rights instrument.

Today I release my first annual report on the impact of COVID19 on people in poverty, scrutinizing the recent wave of social protection. I find that most measures are maladapted, short-term, reactive, and inattentive to the realities of people in poverty:
COVID19 is pushing millions into poverty, but the question is not how many, but why: governments were ill-equipped to deal with its socioeconomic impacts, not because they could not anticipate it, but because they never recovered from the austerity imposed after 2010.
The data is clear. Plummeting public investment in healthcare led millions into poverty, as private insurance coverage increased and hospital beds declined. Care work is undervalued and precarious. Social services are underfunded and overwhelmed. People in poverty pay the price.

🙏 @ShreyaTrivediMD! Fascinating questions. My answers:
1. #Hesitations - Two things...
A. Already distracted by phone (email, texts, etc.). Will Twitter make it worse? Answer, yes. However, I try to limit my interactions to specific times, and turn off notifications.
B. I work for the Federal Gov. Outspoken for #Equity #Inclusion #HumanRights #HeForShe #BLM #LGBTQIA.

I worried about violations of #HatchAct.

However, can speak about issues, just not parties or candidates.

However, #45 doesn't care about Hatch Act. Should I?
2. My most meaningful collaboration in my career has come via #MedTwitter. @JenniferSpicer4 and I noticed similar ideas and content from each other, then set up 1 meeting, and @MedEdTwagTeam was born. We have never met in person, but have collaborated weekly for months now!

If proposed #MagnitskyAct passes German #Bundestag, it will trigger a sea change in #Germany-#Russia relations. It essentially forces Germany to levy #sanctions on Russia for #HumanRights violations. Drys up lots of oligarch finance. #Navalny #NATO #DeutscheBank #TrumpPutin
Russia has been bankrolling a chunk of the #NeoFascist political fringe in #EasternEurope as a way to destabilize #NATO and the #EU. Will a #German #MagnitskyAct clean up some of the money laundering that allows it to occur? Dunno.
To think that a few determined people, upset about the murder of #Russian lawyer #Magnitsky for his work uncovering corruption, were able to create the #MagnitskyAct, which is now changing the world! Does that sound like a famous quote you remember?

Iranian exiles hold DC photo exhibit condemning regime’s human rights violations
#FreeIran2020 #NoImpunity4Mullhas #1988Massacare…
Holding this exhibition is particularly inspiring and effective on the 32nd anniversary of the #1988Massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in #Iran, one of the most horrific cases committed by the clerical regime on Khomeini’s fatwa.

The international community must adopt a firm policy and apply maximum pressure on the regime, including by referring its #HumanRights record to the UN Security Council. #1988Massacre ImageImage
