What is the background of Kalergi's plan for #Europe's destruction?

Why is #Christianity in danger?

2) When thinking how to start this topic, I remembered the words of Austrian cancellor Sebastian Kurz addressed to #Serbs.

During one of his interviews, he said that we should "give up the past (thinking of giving up #Kosovo) and look to the future"... ⬇️
3) He represents so-called modern European civilization that is forcing this nomadic approach to life - when you don't like it, you pack your stuff & leave. e.g. Pakistani or Algerians don't like where they have lived for centuries, so they leave and wish to settle in #Europe. ⬇️

PM of #Montenegro is openly threatening with ethnic cleansing:

"Until August 30, we will tolerate the priests of the Serbian Orthodox Church. After that, we will open the borders and return them to their homes. Law and order will apply equally to Amfilohije as to all others."
@FabriziSem is silent, as usual.

Everything against Christian Orthodox is according to #EU values, apparently. All in the name of "radical Islamisation of the #Europe".

They prefer Islam, that's why they are nurturing Jihadists from Kosovo & Bosnia and supporting #MigrantCrisis
Not a suprise that @FabriziSem is RT puppet of #GeorgeSoros, Milan Antonijević.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU MIX #ISLAM WITH #FASCISM AND #NAZISM?

Topic: #Nazi ideology of so called #GreaterAlbania as the main cause of conflicts in #Kosovo, #Serbia, #Montenegro, #Macedonia and #Greece

#Balkans #SilentNoMore #SilentMajorityRising #GreatAwakening
As the world’s attention is mainly focussed on #USElections2020 and distracted by the #COVID19, there's a project in progress to absorb #Kosovo, Preševo Valley in #Serbia, southern #Montenegro, #Epirus in #Greece and western North #Macedonia into a single #GreaterAlbania state.👇
On a daily basis people of #Serbia, #Montenegro, #Macedonia and #Greece are threatened with irredentist territorial aspiration by Albanians who openly declare #GreaterAlbania with added lands from these countries. #Kosovo has been violently ripped off and history is repeating.👇

Another excellent TLDR summary. This time the Fartage's #migrantcrisis. TLDR TLDR is

1. YOY numbers 2019 18-1900, BBC/Tgraph say it'll be 50% bigger this year, except that is their unsourced "estimate" but even if true, it's one year, poorly sourced.

2⬇️
2. No of people in immigration centres are down 5% at 23075 but that's unreliable as some are detained who are legally here (but it puts the Channel in context - just 10%).

3. Channel Migrants would be forcibly removed. That number is 6778, 21% lower than 2019, and declining Image
4. A new "intelligence cell" with France to track migrants might be inflating the boats number quoted in number 1.

5. Navy patrol boats getting involved is a sledgehammer to smash a pea. Ineffective and poor use of military.

I once took a group of Year 7s on a 10-mile sponsored walk for @World_Wildlife

They were 11/12. Of course they wanted to help polar bears.

Halfway, I got them some ice cream and asked how they were feeling. It was pretty hot on Hampstead Heath

Thread 1/6

#migrantcrisis
They all moaned. Except one kid who said, “This is nothing, Miss. This is easy. I walked more than 100 miles in Africa once, when soldiers were killing people.”

He’d raised over £20.

For polar bears.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the refugee & asylum-seeking kids I’ve taught in UK and met while volunteering in Calais have a WILDLY IMPRESSIVE SKILLSET...

Excellent exposition of the "Migrant Labour and the Politics of Life" by Ranabir Samaddar of Mahanirban Calcutta Research Group and Dr @VinayshilG in @iicdelhi Webinar. Dr Samaddar drew heavily from Michel Foucault. #COVID19 #migrantworkers #migrants Image
2/n #migrantworkers Of course, there was no hiding Ranabir Samaddar's left orientation - but while castigating "neo-liberalism" - he made some very strong points about the 'politics of life' that afflict the problem of #migrants 3/n
3/n #migrantworkers Ranabir Samaddar debunks the debate between life and livelihood. He says - when even 6 months ago we were talking of Universal Basic Income - the nation cannot risk lives on the excuse of livelihood 4/n

1. Orwell’s 1984 opens with Winston Smith writing in his diary about a film he’s seen. “One very good one of a ship full of refugees being bombed somewhere in the Med. Audience much amused”.

Responding to #Farage’s “shocking invasion” tweet, someone suggested sinking the dinghy. Image
2. Earlier this year I wrote about why the language we use to talk about refugees matters.

If left unchallenged, right-wing populists will increasingly frame the conversation & the language we use through fear-mongering & the weaponisation of prejudice.

3. The language of invasion - of being "overrun" or besieged with "swarms" or "floods" of aliens - is nothing new.

It is also not just the domain of the tabloid newspapers.

In March, @nytimes captioned an excellent piece saying police used rubber bullets "to repel the hordes". ImageImageImageImage

#ReadingSession - #Thread on "Report of the Task Force on an IT Strategy for PDS and an implementable solution for the direct transfer of subsidy for Food and Kerosene" - Oct 2011 aka #NandanPDSTaskForce which first mooted the idea of #PDSN. It is important to understand #ONORC
The report is here - dea.gov.in/sites/default/…

Before dwelling in - Note the title - Czar didn't like 'commitees' and hence called whatever he was part of, as - task force - Though no task was done!
Members of committee - All ex-officio secretaries, except 2 from the illegal executive body UIDAI. This was basically done by "#Aadhaar lobby".

Many commentators (see eg. @dravirmani @TheJaggi and @ShekharGupta) have argued for Labour Law reform in India, in the context of UP Govt action to scrap a raft of current laws. Many have cited the example of Bangladesh. Here is B'desh Labour Act 2006.
ilo.org/dyn/travail/do…
This is a comprehensive piece of legislation that reads like a Trade Unionist's wish list. Maternity rights, workers compensation, retirement benefits, health and safety at work, employment of minors.. its all there. This is progressive legislation indeed. I commend it.
In his Youtube commentary, @ShekharGupta presents an old argument that laws preventing a business owener from firing staff and shitting down a factory with > 100 workers acts as a brake on expansion and scale necessary to become competitive. He did NOT give any other example.

The thing is, this is fairly typical nowadays. We saw it in the War on Terror and now again in the War on Immigration. Many of the same firms that won government contracts then are capitalizing on securitized border policy now.
Policies to detain/deter the historically marginal rise of asylum seekers aren’t a good faith response to real concerns. The government doesn’t actually believe these people are dangerous. It’s just good business for neocons and a tried and true way to co-opt the working class.
And like, yeah, it’s totally corrupt, but not according to our legal system. Why? Because the laws and regulations on this mostly protect corporations and the wealthy, not the working class, not vulnerable migrants, and certainly not unaccompanied children.

Mexicans are headed to the polls today to elect a new President... #AMLO is the favorite, many have called him #Mexico’s answer to @realDonaldTrump analysts say that might not be true and voters think he’ll stick up to #Trump who say their current President #Nieto never did
87 million Mexicans (who live in and out of the country) are registered to vote. Juan Gomez-Cruces, 35, who lives in Atlanta, was so unhappy with all the candidates, he just wrote an “X” on his early ballot and sent it back to #Mexico -Read more @NBCLatino nbcnews.to/2KAlZNi
Gomez-Cruces says he watched all 3 debates and one was more disappointing than the next. One debate: candidate ‘El Bronco’ says - “we need to cut off the hand of anyone who steals in the public service.” The moderator asks “literally?” ‘El Bronco’ replies “literally.”
