🚨Don't miss this important part of the story: #Russia has drafted "kill lists" of exiled dissidents in #Ukraine, many in Kyiv. It's yet another indication Kremlin rhetoric about NATO is just that. So appeasing Putin regarding NATO won't even mollify him. foreignpolicy.com/2022/02/18/rus…
#Russia Planning Post-Invasion Arrest & Assassination Campaign in #Ukraine - targeting prominent Ukrainian political opponents, anti-corruption activists, and Belarusian & Russian dissidents living in exile in Ukraine.

Biden administration was "startled" by how formalized #Russia's kill lists are — targeting Russian & #Belarus #dissidents in exile in #Ukraine, #journalists and anti-#corruption activists, and vulnerable populations such as religious and ethnic #minorities and LGBTQI+ persons.

#Primer on #Ethiopian Politics

#Unitarist Vs #Federlaist

- Has little to do with level of #decentralisation of power ordinarily associated with these notions

A critical mass of Ethiopians support #federalism-incl most, if not all, forces within ruling party - incl Abiy - 1
For #ethnonationalists, I believe, any politics based on individual #equality (citizenship or republican politics) is #Unitarist - so #Nigeria, #Kenya (which ban ethnic parties), #Germany and #UnitedStates are Unitary, regardless of their robust federal/devolved structures - 2
What ethnonatioanlists consider #federalist is actually politics based on #ethnicity - (which goes beyond ethnic federalism) - much like Arend Lijphart's prototypical #consociational system - so soemthing like #Belgium and #BosniaHerzegovina, but for 80+ ethnic groups – 3

Thread by @JessicaMeigs (THANK YOU THANK YOU!)

➡️ Hey #entrepreneurs, #TwitterMarketing, and ANYONE who is #selfemployed

‼️EVERYONE should know this information that's being buried in the news cycle:

‼️The PRO Act, or HR 842‼️👎

...…📵🔊 threadreaderapp.com/thread/1366805…
The voting date is scheduled for 03/08! (aka THIS Monday!)

🚨Remember the heavily OPPOSED smack-down that #California imposed on millions of #independentcontractors?

That they are ‼️STILL‼️ fighting? The law that says you cannot even do #Rideshare unless @uber, @lyft, @Grubhub
... EMPLOY you as an official employee of the company. 😱

Even IF they could afford to do that (and these companies have ALREADY said they CANNOT,) you could not:

🔸set your own schedule
🔸where you want to work
🔸or any other #sidehustle - GONE

Not sure if you’re in this 📦?

THREAD 22 of writing against the 🪖-coup. It might be on emotional shock and feeling numb. It might be on the suffering of others. It might be on a new advocacy group - or on all of the above. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar Artist: Kuekool
1. This post by #Rohingya #activist @Ali_Jinnah_222 captures two things I want to write about today: being at a loss of words in regard to one’s own feelings - and being in #solidarity with the suffering of others. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovement
2. All of my research in #Myanmar has been with/about ethnic #minorities. My interlocutors are #Muslims and #Hindus locally referred to as “Burmese #Indians”. All of my research assistants happen to be #Kachin #Christians. I have #Chin friends, too

How is this not #HateSpeech against one of India's smallest religious #minorities, @TwitterIndia? Image
Another sample of anti-#Christian #HateSpeech by an establishment flunkey. Another sample of @TwitterIndia's high tolerance level for anti-minority hate in India while @Twitter takes the high moral ground in the US to impress liberals there. Will the real Twitter please stand up? Image
Ignorance too is at play here: a minority is a minority for @Twitter only if it's a minority in the West. So Indian #Christians apart, Twitter doesn't recognise caste when you report abuse. #Facebook is rightly in the dock over #AnkhiDas but Twitter is no less an enabler of hate.

#Minorities_In_Pakistan are living the hell life in Pakistan, and the reason is single behind this that:- Pakistan is a _Islamic Nation.

Soon there will be a day when not a single person from a minority live in Pakistan.

.. Ram Bai forcefully converted to #Islam and married to already man with children from #MirpurKhas.

2. Dead body of a Hindu girl, Diya Meghwar was found in Nasir canal, Tando Allahyar, #Sindh under suspicious condition. She has been missing for weeks.. #Minority_Butcher_Pak
3. A 15-year-old Christian kidnapped by a married Muslim with four children. Soon she will be converted to #Islam and then #Nikah. After some time they will sell her or kill her...

In #Kashmir, the Government of India detained political leaders and restricted protests, and telephone and internet services. There were 106 internet shutdowns in India
in 2019, according to @NetShutdowns. #HumanRights & #Democracy report of @FCOHumanRights
@Article14live
& the rest of the report talks of #Police trainings, working with Indian Government on 'Strength of Diversity & Inclusion', interfaith events, & religious barriers for minorities.
However, the report completely misses out, has excluded the attacks on #minorities #muslims ...
#dalits and #women.
While talking of Police training it misses out on the police brutality in India. While working with the government on diversity & inclusion, it misses out on the attacks on minorities, the lynchings & systemic oppression.

The @PrefaceVentures website is live: prefaceventures.com. Special thanks to @BrettBerson @atouchofair as well as an anonymous designer akin to Banksy for the output. We're doing a few things a bit differently, specifically around founder #communication. A thread:
1 / Founders deserve more #transparency into how VC's operate and what we will do for them as partners. At Preface we call this "The Code", which is essentially our #SLA for #frontierenterprise founders
2 / We are clear how and what we invest in you. How much initially ($250-$750k), how much is reserved for follow-ons (1-3x) and how often (5-7x pa, ~20 investments per fund). This simple info is impossible to find online on 99% of VC’s

1. It seems they have decided to oppose it by all means. They are doing it to avenge the demolition of #Baburi Mosque in India, back in early 90s.

This is a gentle request to them, please don't forget that your brutality, hate against your people, the minorities of Pakistan,
2. Pakistani Hindus, won't chang anything, it won't hurt them, neithr produce anything gud 4 any1.

If u want to build a #Baburi Mosq at d site of the #Mandir in Islambad, u r free. But trust me, it won't chang anything in India, rathr weaken our stance at d international levl.
3. It would disturb interfaith #harmony in our country, it would stop us from #progress, it would damage #Peace and #prosperity in our country, Pakistan.
It is better to make religion our private matter, and accept the difference rather than imposing our belief on others.

1) If you claim to be a #Liberal today, your world must be incredibly strange. There are two types of Liberal, the #elite overlords, and the useful idiots. You can decide for yourself where you fit. But there is no doubt that you EMPOWER the CORRUPT ESTABLISHMENT. Lets sum it up:
2) You believe that killing a baby is your "right", but killing newborn puppies or bird eggs should land you in jail.
3) You believed, without evidence, that #Trump was a puppet of #Russia. When he imposed brutal sanctions, you ignored it to preserve your world view.

Hajra Bi said Our children had come back after Friday prayers when PAC climbed our terrace and asked about gunshots(imprints are still there on the walls).One of them was dancing,He mocked me asked if it was Amitabh Bachchan who had fired.They took away my son who never came back
Haneef said, "PAC desperately tried to enter house and then told me to come outside. I was the first one to be arrested. Later other men from the locality also assembled and formed a line. We were told to keep our hands up and were taken to civil lines police
