The #UN🇺🇳 General Assembly voted Thursday to suspend #Russia🇷🇺 from its leading #humanrights body over allegations that Russian soldiers in #Ukraine🇺🇦 engaged in rights violations.

It was a rare rebuke against a member of the UN Security Council. @ClaireARush reports⤵️
@ClaireARush #Ukrainian🇺🇦 President Volodymyr #Zelensky said on the Thursday that the situation in the town of #Borodyanka was "significantly more dreadful" than in nearby #Bucha, where Russian forces' suspected #killings of #civilians have been broadly condemned.

@smougin reports⤵️
@ClaireARush @smougin "The #Russians🇷🇺 have moved their troops from northwest and west of #Kyiv to Belarus. The idea is to then redeploy them to #Ukraine's🇺🇦 #Donbas region, where it’s expected 🇷🇺 will launch its heaviest assault yet."

@RobParsonsF24 reports on the 🇷🇺 military situation from #Lviv⤵️

After a peaceful pro-#independence demonstration in #Paris on #17October1961,up to 300 #Algerians were murdered by police. Historians described this #massacre as “the bloodiest act of state repression of street protest in western Europe in modern history”.…
The most memorable – and vicious – #atrocities saw #policemen herding panicking crowds on to #Paris's bridges, where many were tossed into the #Seine. The river became a watery morgue for scores of victims, whose lifeless bodies were washing up for weeks. #17Octobre1961 #Algeria
Others died in #police stations, or in nearby woods, where their #mutilated bodies testified to truncheon and rifle-butt injuries. The officers had been incensed by an illegal protest by 30,000 men, women and children organised by the National #Liberation Front (FLN) of #Algeria.

Exactly four years ago today, I photographed this image that would later be called “pieta.”

On July 23, 2016, under a footbridge along Edsa Pasay Rotonda, Jennilyn Olayres cradled her partner Michael Siaron after being shot to death by motorcycle-riding gunmen.
It was a traumatic night for many reasons. Traumatic to me because to this day, the voice of Olayres still lingers in my mind.
As she held her lifeless partner in the middle of a crime scene, surrounded by bystanders, police, and the press, she screamed at us photographers, begging to stop taking photos and help her instead.

Dear @nytimes @cnn @vice @newsroomnz @thescientistllc @businessinsider @bbcnews @LaVanguardia @diariARA @NatureNews @sciencemagazine I suggest to every one of you to carefully and honestly think and reply to a very simple question regarding #bats #conservation #virus & #ethics.
"A casual family wth 2 lovely children lives in the countryside, near a cave hosting thousands of bats. They never had an issue with them and don't know much about bats... but now they've read your most recent news and headings about #coronavirus. What would they immediately do?"
Let me give my personal view as a bat ecologist "They would probably seal the cave or massively kill as many bats as possible. Some could hopefully escape, but the colony wouldn't definitely be back." But don't misunderstand me. It is 100% logical, and I would have done the same.

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

🤥#UScensus is maliciously biased

Thread coming soon about #CauseOfDeath #DataFraud

#AmericanSwamp #MedicalControlFraud

ANOTHER HINT: My inability to escape intrahospital, interhospital & health/disability insurers’ #ConspiracyAgainstRights using #MedicalControlFrauds exposes motive of the right answer.

Watch this video later to understand #PublicCorruption by example📽️

1-The great resistance and struggle of the peoples of western Kurdistan (Rojava) and Northern Syria has created a unique association within the community.…
2-Our struggle which started as a battle against #ISIS in west of #Kurdistan evolved into a revolution which has stood against all kinds of invasion attempts.
3-Spending all its energy trying to legitimize its #occupation of #Syrian lands, #Turkey has resumed its efforts to stop the progress our forces have made in west #Kurdistan and to undermine the democratic and revolutionary development of our people.
