1000s of #Migrants from Bihar who gathered at #BandraStation today to board Shramik train were lathicharged by police. They told me “We’re waiting for our chance since May 6, after doing registration. In absence of food & wages, all we want is family. Are we asking for too much?”
Some of them are tailors, some painters, some used to do construction jobs. They tried going back to their jobs but contractors didn’t take them back as they aren’t required right now due to lockdown. Mostly of these workers told me “Haven’t had 2 square meals from last 2 months”
Mostly of these #MigrantWorkers hail from Bihar. They told me “We have been waiting to go back home since May5, even after doing registration & medical test. Everyday we’re sent back from the station. We don’t have any money now, families haven’t eaten two square meals for weeks”

THREAD: Instead of working to protect women & girls during the #COVID19 pandemic, #Hungary has just rushed through a vote to withdraw from a groundbreaking European treaty to combat violence against women. #IstanbulConvention. hungarytoday.hu/govt-rejects-r…
#Hungary's Christian Democratic Party introduced the bill only last night, on the grounds that the #IstanbulConvention's protections of #migrants and #refugees contradict national policy, and that it promotes so-called "gender ideology." voiceofeurope.com/2020/05/hungar…
Such misinformation has been used to advance homophobic, anti-migrant & anti-women's rights agendas elsewhere in the region. Misrepresentation of efforts towards gender equality has provoked dangerous attacks on women's & #LGBT rights in #Poland. See @hrw hrw.org/news/2019/02/0…

As of Monday (April 6, 2020), the number of deaths due to #Coronavirus in India stand at 83. But I was also thinking maybe one ought to look at non-Covid 19 deaths too. Deaths due to various circumstances under the #lockdown #covid19 #CoronavirusinIndia
1. Ravneer Singh (30) died in Kaliash Mod, Uttar Pradesh. A native of Badfra village, Morena district, this father of 3 worked as a delivery agent in Delhi. Walked 200 km before dying of exhaustion

2. Gangaram Yeleng (62) who died in Majuragate after walking 8 km from New Civil Hospital to Pandesara, Gujarat

#Traduction #Précarité #Migrants #AffordanceLangagière Parution du n° annuel de l'excellente revue Rhizome @OrspereSamdarra sur "Pair-aidance, interprétariat et médiations"; quelques mots sur cet article écrit par Anne-Sophie Haeringer @CentreMaxWeber

Il s'attaque aux "conditions de félicité d'un travail qui consiste, pour ceux qui l'exercent, à tout faire pour s'effacer", l'interprétariat, ici au sein d'une EMPP (équipe mobile psychiatrie précarité) intervenant auprès de migrant-es

Fear-exploiting rhetoric around the #coronavirus could provide political space to push through structural anti-migration policies.

What can be done to⬇️short-term effects of #Covid19 on #migrants?

@_jasongagnon of @OECD_Centre discusses in #DevMatters bit.ly/2JA7E1s👇
"Refugee camps are some of the most densely populated places in the world. During #COVID19 residents may not be able to leave, choose where to go, or socially distance themselves."

Learn how the crisis is affecting #refugees & challenges the int'l community face➡️ #DevMatters
Border closures during #COVID19 will show our dependence on mobility of labour.

An abrupt halt to int'l #migration could threaten food supplies & affect food security in developing countries where agricultural sectors are heavily reliant on seasonal labour.

This was the third month of 2020.

It sure looks like we’re reaching a crescendo with the #coronavirusoutbreak, #travelban, the whole world in #quarantine and multiple countries in #lockdown.

Can we say March Madness was in full swing or what?

The Entire World Is Watching 🐸🍿
The month started with an escalation of the #Immigration crisis in #Greece and #GreeceUnderAttack.

#FakeNews still trying to control the narrative with the “refugee” story.

This video clearly shows we are not dealing with warm-hearted #refugees with the best intentions.
#Refugees don’t hold children over smoke to make them cry. #FakeNews uses these images to get to your feeling and trigger emotions and a reaction.

They are not economic #migrants. #Refugeecrisis is engineered, with endless wars, open borders and open society brainwashing BS.

THREAD. A week ago I wrote this on the contribution that #migrants and #refugees make to the response to #coronavirus. Since then I have been collecting information on HOW this happens in different countries to learn for the future.

At @ODIdev we will be tracking and analysing these actions/innovations, for now here is an overview

First up the #USA where #NY state takes action allowing qualified graduates of foreign medical schools to contribute to the #Covid_19 emergency response
governor.ny.gov/news/no-20210-…
Still in the #USA, the State Department is on the lookout for medical professionals abroad willing to work in the #US. As long as they have a valid visa....mhh.....🙄

We’ve made a video 🎬

No spin lines
No empty slogans

Just the FACTS

From #nhs workers of what we’ve seen happen to #ourNHS over the past few years

The #ToriesTrackRecord speaks for itself

Please share
#FactsNotSpin #NHScrisis

Thread ⬇️
1️⃣ FUNDING

These promises of “extra spending” we hear every year never materialise

The reality: An NHS underfunded by by 30% since 2010

That’s 30 BILLION / year short

The recent ‘cash injection’ promised by the Tories, is STILL under what the 4% needed to stop further decline
2️⃣STAFFING

Dangerous staffing shortages across the NHS

40,000 nurses
10,000 Hospital DRs
7000 GPs

For years the govt have been warned about the worsening shortages

Their response:

Visa caps
Nursing bursary cut
Training budgets cut
Imposing unfair contracts on Junior DRs

Doing social media for @NewSanctuaryNYC means I rarely take a break from #immigration news. Every day the Trump administration looks for another way to cause harm to black & brown people. Thread highlights some of the current policies. We MUST not stop fighting back. #impeach 👇🏼
The Trump administration is doing another secretive pilot test in El Paso, this time “Prompt Asylum Claim Review,” a program to speed up deportation of #asylum seekers. washingtonpost.com/immigration/tr…
"These new policies have resulted in the separation of family units, lasting trauma and heartache, and shocking detention conditions for both children and adults."

No words can describe how I feel today. I have read the news about the bodies found in the back of a lorry with lots of horro. It brought back memories of my journey when we were stuck nearly to death in lorries and tankers and freezers with meat and chicken

Photo from 2015
The death of fellow humans whose bodies were found near Essex had me losing my mind. I was there before in 2015. I can fell what they have been through. I can hear them screaming to death because I was there. I can feel them clinging onto life but in-vain
bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
The screams of these people still haunts me. I can never forget that moment when I touched death while being kept in the back of the freezer lorry. I can never forget the eyes of those who were with me on that tanker, no air, no light nothing but the smell of death

What does Jesus say about #migrants? He doesn't say help the stranger only if it's risk free, or convenient, or the stranger has the right papers, or is from the same ethnic or religious group. No, we are meant to show mercy to the stranger regardless.
That's one of the main points of Jesus's Parable of the Good Samaritan. The Samaritan who helps the beaten man does so at considerable risk to himself: he was exposing himself to robbers and beatings on the "Road to Jericho," a notoriously dangerous road. But he helps him anyway.
And the way that we treat strangers will be one litmus test for entrance into heaven. Because the way we treat strangers (and by that the Bible means refugees, migrants and displaced persons, with or without "papers") will, says Jesus, determine our entrance into heaven (Mt. 25).

Before there was that angry micro fence in El Paso, in November of 2015 Erik Prince, using Frontier Service Group as cover, pitched the idea of armed air tractors/helos, gunned up rat patrol Toyotas and fast boats to capture and put #migrants in camps. theintercept.com/2016/03/24/bla…
"In January, (Erik) Prince returned to Macau and opened an account at the Bank of China, ...It was not a personal account,” said the former U.S. intelligence official “He was doing it for the purpose of ... money laundering on behalf of the Libyans.”
"Prince told colleagues that he received preliminary approval for the border force from a senior Libyan official...The plan called for a series of “border security” bases housing intelligence centers, helicopters, surveillance airplanes, and weaponized vehicles."

L'info de la nuit US. #Trump persiste,signe et décrète même seul que relâcher les immigrants sans-papiers dans les villes démocrates sanctuaires est légal. Et assume le chantage fait aux démocrates (ou vous votez mes lois ou je vous envoie des migrants).RT
2) Cette volonté de #Trump de "renvoyer" les migrants sans-papiers dans les sanctuaires pour "punir" les démocrates de ne pas voter des lois plus dures sur l'#immigration est inédite. Il utilise les moyens de l'Etat comme menace pour forcer l'opposition.RT
3) Il y a dans cette nouvelle politique d'#immigration 1 triple transgression par rapport au statu quo ante. D'1 part, il continue de "présidentialiser" la politique migratoire contre sa propre administration hostile à ce transfert infaisable des sans-papiers vers les sanctuaires

1. Politicians are lying to you: For almost 10 years we had near zero percent #interest, #ECB & #FED printed billions of $ & € creating huge asset #bubbles in #stocks & #properties. On top thousands of foreigners bought "cheap" properties in GER.

#Habeck #Enteignungen
2. On top many cities, especially #Munich, allowed only few new properties to be build - For 3 new families that reached Munich only 1 new home was build!
This scarcity is by design, since it inflates the value of existing #properties, enriching the "haves".
#Habeck #Enteignungen
3. The next money printing scam are all the regulations that hit home-builders in the last plus 10 years: "Dämmung","energetische Sanierung" (to prevent loss of heat/energy) and more is expensive & thus reduces the numbers that can afford a home & increases #rents.
