A rep from a company that sells #Enagic #Kangenwater helped smuggle this illegal quackery into Ireland recently.
He says his water kills #Cancer cells.
This is criminal behaviour and has been reported to #HPRA

1. Timely that we're having the #unity conversation now because we're going through the biggest constitutional change in a generation, said @moneillsf @IrelandsFuture
2. We're in a period of massive change, we have a chance to grab it and make something better said @moneillsf @irlelandsfuture
@moneillsf 3. We have to be mature and respectful enough to have the conversation about change, said @moneillsf. After a century of division there is nothing for nationalists to celebrate. But I accept those of unionist identity come at this from very different viewpoint @IrelandsFuture

The #Zapatista tour of #Ireland, a long aul’ thread (but pix and vids!) to wrap up

In 1994 indigenous peasants in the mountains of SE Mexico rose up against #neoliberal capitalism, their latest struggle in 500 years of resisting colonialism…

#LaGiraZapatistaVa #EZLN Zapatista women at La Realidad
If you need a backgrounder, here's Mick McCaughan, ex-Latin American correspondent for the Irish Times and Guardian introducing why the #Zapatistas matter:

27 years later, they hold liberated territory the size of Munster –

governing themselves from below

with a powerful #womxn’s movement

practicing #AgroEcology

and with their own culture, education system, community media...

Part 1 of 2:

New National Anthem for #Ireland

"Sold our souls have we,
Our lives are pledged to Pfizer,
Some have fear
of a third, a fourth, fifth wave.
Vaccines, one, two, three
From our "Transhumaniser"
Shall render each one of us a slave."
"Tonight, we'll all roll up our sleeve
In Davos' cause, then by Their leave,
We'll drink a pint and quietly grieve,
There's no more Soldiers' song."

850 years' struggle for liberty lost in less than 850 days.

In one of our meetings a community #activist said

“People ask me what the #EZLN want – why have they come here? And I tell them that I don’t think they want anything.

They’ve come to share something with us.” Sixth communique part 1
The tour isn’t looking for charity or trying to be another cool thing to enthuse about at a distance.

It is about active international solidarity, conversations between compas about what we are struggling around, how we are organising and what we can learn from each other. 6th communique

On Monday the #EZLN came to Dublin to meet our movements.

You could tell the story of Dublin’s #SocialMovements through class:

they met working-class community groups, housing activists, migrant members of the new Irish working class, trade unionists and many shades of left. Welcome to Dublin
But you could also say that we talked about #patriarchy and violence against women, #racism and colonialism, land and ecology, autonomy and rebellion. For the #EZLN as in actual communities, these are not separate struggles:

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

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...

.
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

"Covid-19 vaccines are still “stunningly effective” despite fears that immunity may dwindle over time"

cnbc.com/2021/09/01/are…

Stunningly Effective! 🤪
Image
Unvaxxed @joerogan gets Covid and recovers after early treatment, likely developing superior natural immunity. "I feel great. I really only had one bad day."

Yet the vaccine useful idiots illogically use this to denegrate effective re-purposed drugs, and to shame the unvaxxed.
@joerogan The goal posts are still moving:

"The vaccines prevent infection!"

"Well, ok, but breakthrough infections are rare and mild!"

"Well, ok, but vaccines prevent hospitalizations and death!"

And now:
"Well, ok, but vaccines reduce the risk of Long Covid"

Bienvenid@s al hilo de los 14mil seguidores (que casi se convierte en el de los 15mil).
Hoy viene cargadito. Veremos una catedral, un ídolo pagano en su interior y la historia de a quien representa.
¿Estáis preparad@s? Vamos 😉
Nos encontramos en la catedral de Armagh (Irlanda del Norte), que fue fundada en el año 445 d.C por San Patricio.
El nombre del lugar deriva de Ard Mhacha que era una princesa tribal (aunque hay quien dice que era una diosa).
Esta zona se vincula también con Emain Macha, que se encuentra muy cerca, y que fue un sitio ritual ocupado desde el Neolítico hasta la Edad de Bronce.
Cuando el santuario que había aquí se destruyó se hizo otro en el lugar que hoy ocupa la catedral.

Another vaxxed parent has infected their unvaxxed child. Yet the mother of the hospitalized 3-year-old blames the unvaccinated:

"maybe if more people will be vaccinated, I wouldn’t have had the exposure that caused me to bring this illness to my daughter"
wfla.com/community/heal… Image
"Across Los Angeles County, cities and neighborhoods including West Hollywood, Venice and Santa Monica now report some of the most infections, even though their vaccination rates are higher than in poorer areas such as East Los Angeles"

Or — and I know this sounds crazy, but hear me out — maybe it was all the adverse events, the failure to block transmission, and the waning efficacy that 'tanked confidence' in the AstraZeneca vaccine?

युद्ध चाहे हजार साल पहले बीता हो, या आज।औरतें हरदम जीत की ट्रॉफी या हार की याद रहीं

वियतनाम युद्ध में #American सैनिकों ने
- हजारों कम उम्र लड़कियों को हॉर्मोन्स के इंजेक्शन दिए गए ताकि उनका भरा-भरा शरीर सैनिकों को 'एट होम' महसूस कराए
- बाद में 50 हज़ार बच्चे ‘रेप’ से पैदा हुए
#German पुरुष का गर्व तोड़ने के लिए उनकी महिलाओं का बलात्कार

दूसरे विश्व युद्ध के दौरान सोवियत(रूस) की सेना ने घरों से खींच-खींचकर जर्मन औरतें-बच्चियां का गैंगरेप किया। सबका एक ही मकसद था- जर्मन गर्व को तोड़ देना। इस दौरान सेना का सबसे मजबूत पुरुष ‘रेप’ के लिए जोश दिला रहा होता।
1919 के #Ireland वॉर में सैनिकों दुश्मन औरत के बाल छील देते। सिर ढंकने की मनाही थी। सिर मुंडाए चलती औरत गुलामी का इश्तेहार होती। राह चलते कितनी ही बार उसके शरीर को दबोचा जाता।
- पुरुष लेबर कैंपों में थे और छोटे बच्चे घर पर इंतजार करते हुए- उन मां और दीदी का जो कभी लौट नहीं सकीं।
