#Disinformation about the Law of #Ukraine - On Supporting the Functioning of the #Ukrainian Language as the #State #Language Image

“One of the authors of the draft law, #Mykola #Knyazhytsky says the legislation is not designed to curtail any #minority language in #Ukraine,
but rather to support #Ukrainian through proposing to increase Ukrainian #language content on national #television to 75%.The proposed #law is discussed in committee.”…

During the #busy #holiday #season it is important we not overlook our #Christian #minority in their celebration of Yom Saint Patrick Ha’Kadosh.

Although it coincided with Purim last year, Yom Saint Patrick Ha’Kadosh is not the Christian Purim.

Yom Saint Patrick Ha’Kadosh is the yahrzeit of Saint Patrick Ha’Kadosh, a Christian tzaddik who died on 20 Adar II, 4221.

His yahrzeit is celebrated according to the Pope Gregory #calendar on 17 March, which this year falls today, on Adar 24th.

Just a brief reminder from #HR about our company's #holiday leave policy.

Recently, certain employees were taking excessive numbers of days off for their #religious #holidays.
The employees who came to work as usual had to work three times as hard to make up for all the absences. We are a welcoming company that supports the religious observance of all of our employees, including those who belong to #minority #religions.
However, if you need to take off a day for a religious holiday, you must bring in a letter from your religion’s rabbi to confirm that this is an authentic holiday.

In addition, so-called “travel days” before and after holidays may not be accommodated.

Dear Geveret Smith,

I am writing to address some concerns that you expressed in your letter about the class #holiday activities held over the past week.

First of all, I want to express that our #PublicSchool loves ALL our #students.

We have a #diverse #student body, we hold #diversity training every year, and we prioritize being good #allies to our #Christian students.

Naturally, we were surprised to receive such a long list of complaints from you about our #winter #holiday #programming, considering that we go so far out of our way to accommodate our #Christian students.

“We are deeply disturbed by the 20-yr track record that places Judge Alito on the far right of the judicial spectrum, esp when it comes to women’s & #civilrights. If #SamuelAlito is confirmed…many of our fundamental rights will be at great risk, & could well be lost entirely.”⬇️

No, I am not leaving out that fact. I am happy to confirm that your GOV is blocking #NATO-#Ukraine Commission since 2017. Which is a disgrace.
You equate the importance of the #EuroAtlantic perspective of a 43m nation ...
... to the right to use minority language in the secondary education (!) in case of a 150k national minority. That's disgrace. Your government could have solved the issue long ago if you would be ready to offer something (perhaps some political support) to Kyiv ...
... instead always just demanding and hindering Ukraine's European and #NATO integration efforts. But your government has never had a pragmatic or supportive approach towards #Ukraine. We also know why: because your priority is to earn muffin points by the #Kremlin. ...

#Lukashenko wants to limit rights of citizens with ‘Pole’s Card’
This is a document confirming that a person belongs to the 🇵🇱 people. Since it's introduction in 2008 more than 140,000 🇧🇾 received the document.
The cardholder has a number of non-civilian rights. #Poland #Belarus Image
Amongst others the the card allows you to get a long-term national 🇵🇱 visa for free, work legally in 🇵🇱 without a special permit, & use the education system for free, engage in business activities in 🇵🇱 on the same basis as 🇵🇱 citizens, have a discount on travel in transport, etc
One of the threats Lukashenko put forward is the deprivation of citizenship...

@tanjil_rashid_ @ZareerMasani @saliltripathi 1. #Partition1947 counterfactuals aren't counterintuitive. #Partition ended a zero sum game among the same stale set of interlocutors conducting a dialogue of the deaf #Simla, June '45 onwards. #CabinetMissionPlan's devolution did NOT solve #India's impasse.
@tanjil_rashid_ @ZareerMasani @saliltripathi 2. #Jinnah accepted the #CabinetMissionPlan for an embryonic #Pakistan was assured, and permitted to secede, come 1957, if the #confederation was not to the #MuslimLeague's liking. Routinely overlooked by #Nehru's #Indian and #Pakistani baiters.
@tanjil_rashid_ @ZareerMasani @saliltripathi 3. To iterate: #CabinetMissionPlan was a pilot project to be reviewed decadally. Just how was #India and #Nehru to embark on #economic #planning and consolidate a #democratic #union of disparate elements riven by #regionalism, #casteism and #sectarianism?

Bench: Mr Datar said he'll see if a special dispensation can/needs to be provided. Which is the other similar matter?

Adv @AshwiniUpadhyay: Pleadings are complete.

#minority #SupremeCourt
Upadhyay: Court had said approach the National Commission for Minorities. Hindus Minorities in some States.

Justice Lalit: theoretically you're right.
Justice Bhat: If SC has said it had to be State-wise, why should we interfere?

#SupremeCourt will today hear a #PIL filed by Devkinandan Thakur challenging the National Commission for Minorities Act. The plea has sought direction to define ‘#minority’ and lay down ‘guidelines for identification of minorities at district level’.
Counsel informs the bench that there is another similar matter pending before Justice Kaul.

The bench says that it may be right that the Hindus are I'm minorities in some states. Then if there is a law then what should we clarify in it.
Court: There will be minorities all over, in some state some people would be Minority, its not the court who should do this. If you give us the exact example then we can certainly look into that.

Advocate Ashwini Upadhyay: Milords, there is counter filed by Centre in main matter

In early march, we published a study on how Russians feel about the #war in #Ukraine.

We repeated this survey in early April with 1508 interviews in collaboration with @mowebresearch.

The survey took place before the atrocities in #Bucha became public. Results in a 🧵👇(1/n)
To obtain genuine & honest answers, the survey was conducted online. Since the first survey, the #propaganda has intensified and #pressure on critical voices in #Russia has increased. Therefore, any changes to march results only serve as an indicator for mood changes. (2/n)
57% of Russsians support Russia's "military intervention" in Ukraine (+9% since March). Support is increasing, but is lower than in other recently published polls, possibly due to online methodology where less pressure is present compared to phone/face2face methodologies. (3/n)

The vast majority of CT is misunderstanding the #Canadian situation. The simple fact is that the #convoys have nothing to do with #freedom or peaceful #protests.

First off: the #EmergenciesAct is not martial law and is not above the law.…
The protesters are a fringe #rightwing #minority group, partly supported by the American #extreme right.…
#Sabotaging the delivery of food and medical #supplies, blocking the movement of #international goods and services, holding up ambulances and firetrucks, preventing people from getting to #work - these are #criminal activities and not peaceful protests.

1/ This incident have to do with the global context. The West...has thrown its entire #propaganda machine into agitation work and has given a lot of encouragement and assistance to the so-called democrats or opposition in China — people who are in fact are the scum [of 17]
2/ Some Western countries use things like #HumanRights or like saying the socialist system is irrational or #illegal, to criticize us, but what they're really after is our sovereignty...
3/ Two conditions are indispensable for our development goals: a #stable environment at home and a peaceful environment abroad...

1/n Dear @JimCarrey, as life gave you a voice that matters we beg you to use it for good once again.

Please #StepUpForFreedom

'We' are being discriminated, due to our choice of not getting vaccinated (yet) against Covid &/or our choice of saying no to injecting our children.👇
2/n Hear us out:

#EmotionalSituation: we suffer. Division is upon us. Many lost their jobs. Families and friends are being torn apart. Many Europeans, Canadians, Americans, Australians and other citizens of the world share this pain. #Wearemillions. 👇
3/n #FreedomOfSpeech: our voice is being shut and undermined in mass media. Pretexting public health good intentions, political leaders of our nations end up dismissing, if not censoring (on social media), solid arguments for our choice, even if bcked up by eminent scientists.👇

This is why being a visible #minority is so hard. I shall only state my own experience. Comments by REAL people.🧵

1. Job interview - “How many years of postdoc have you done? Oh, you are an infant postdoc”

2. “You are here because of EDI…haha..JK”
3. “I am surprised. This opportunity should have been given to senior PIs”

4. “What do you think? Can you do this independently? Things are different now”

And there are more. I needed to share these. These signs of microaggression do not help.
I am so lucky to have colleagues and mentors who constantly support me and hear me out, but comments like these do keep coming back. As I grow and mature as a researcher, I shall constantly remind myself to be humble and inclusive. #EquityIsOpportunity

1/6: The current German Center-Left/Center-Right so-called "#GrandCoalition" #GroKo is now without a #majority in the polls. This increases the likelihood that #Merkel's departure in fall 2021 will not only usher in a change of government and #chancellor.…

Contributed to @Guardian Podcast 'Today In Focus': The murder of schoolteacher Samuel #Paty who had shown his class #cartoons of the prophet #Muhammad has rekindled a debate in #France over #secularism & the state’s role in regulating #FreeSpeech. (21'-29')
I emphasise that we can discuss the general problem of hateful #cartoons about the Prophet #Muhammad & his Muslim followers that spread collective guilt & humiliate often underprivileged #minority communities beyond acts of barbaric #terrorism. #Racism #Islamophobia #CharlieHebdo
I think that @EmmanuelMacron acted in a manner that was rash & unstatesmanlike following the vile murder of Samuel #Paty. He has effectively incorporated #cartoons mocking #Islam into its domestic policies. He defended them as part of French culture & #France’s global image.

We need to talk about just how corrupt we've allowed #democracy in #America to become, to the point it isn't democracy in many respects. And we need to stop #partisan squabbling and get to fixing it before we end up a one-party state, like #China. Thread👇
In 2019, writing the decision for Common Cause v. Rucho, Chief Justice Roberts closed off the federal courts as an avenue for addressing partisan #gerrymandering, instead telling citizens to propose state constitutional amendments.
In many states, with statehouses #gerrymandered beyond reach of the people, or otherwise beholden to special interests, these citizen-amendments are the only avenue left for addressing #democracy reform and other policy concerns.

@BernieSanders Reality: the “#rich” lost a lot of #wealth and #profit generating capabilities, hence many #workers were #fired. However, some #minority among the rich was better able to adjust and improvise, which enables them to lower #unemployment by expanding their #investments.....
@BernieSanders .....society as a whole was damaged by the pandemic, it is not a zero-sum game as uncle @BernieSanders assumes, and the rich boogeyman does not want nor does he have the time to go out targeting your pockets.
@BernieSanders Furthermore, studies are clear that “protecting” workers is not good for productivity (since productivity enhancing technology puts people out of work), and thus the wages of the workers. Wages are further diminished by the temporary and artificial “stability” provided.

#BritishEmpire is trending on twitter: and so is #BlackLivesMatter. We want to take this moment to raise awareness of the the nature Wales shares with the British Empire 1/
Both colonised and subject to colonisation, Wales has a radical potential for radical solidarity and decolonisation. We need decolonisation, desperately, and anti-colonisation, as colonialism in #Wales is not over, nor is colonialism undertaken by the #BritishEmpire 2/
Grassroots local change with the support of others can harness real tangible long-term change beyond tick-boxes, key performance indicators and unionist political parties (and non-unionist political parties who are complicit in institutional racism and anti-Blackness) 3/
