The list of truly fundamental needs for human life is a short one.

Food is on that list.

▶️This is how climate change impacted crops in 2019◀️

This is terrifying.

The midwest was plagued with heavy rain, leading to flooding & causing major challenges with corn, soybeans & other crops

This was widely documented by farmers themselves: #noplant19

It's #WorldAIDSDay.
There were approximately 37.9 million people living with #HIV at the end of 2018.
🔹79% had been diagnosed
🔹62% were receiving treatment
🔹53% had achieved suppression of the HIV virus to the point at which they were at low risk of infecting others.
@WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO #DYK: HIV can now be diagnosed through rapid tests that can provide same-day results.
But no single test can provide a full #HIV diagnosis: a confirmatory test is required, conducted by a qualified and validated health worker at a community centre or clinic.
@WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO There is no cure for #HIV infection.
However, effective antiretroviral drugs can control the virus and help prevent onward transmission to other people.

Truth be told, we have beautiful fabrics in #Africa.

Bògòlanfini or bogolan is a handmade Malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with fermented mud. It has an important place in traditional Malian culture & has, more recently, become a symbol of Malian cultural identity.
The Ndop, or dze ndouop or nji Ndop cloth is a resist stitched, indido- dyed cloth of Bamileke origin in the Western region of #Cameroon. It is used ceremonies.

📷: @moityuwaifo and son.
Atoghu also known as Toghu is a distinct fabric from the North West region of #Cameroon. Originally worn by royalty & dignitaries. 

Designs representing culture & history are stitched in patterns on velvet fabric (originally). Today, it's evolved to satin & cotton fabrics.

Mercury will pass between Earth & Sun on afternoon, 11 Nov 2019 Monday. Most of #MercuryTransit2019 can be seen from all of Africa, till local sunset. @SKA_Africa @SAAOOutreach @AfricaAstronomy @Astro4Dev & others are coordinating a Africa-wide campaign for #ToM2019 #ToMAfrica
It is VERY dangerous to look at the Sun directly using telescope binoculars or naked eyes. Looking at Sun's image projected onto a sheet of paper by a telescope is safe. There r a few public events by science centres etc in Africa where u can see #ToM2019 safely (pic @samyukta_m)

The #Mozambique #CaboDelgado #mercenary gig is out. The meat of this report is correct. I have known about it for a while and watched it unravel as #Concord/Wagner/Lobaye stepped in and kicked out Erik Prince's micro mercenary three month rent an army.
There is an upcoming election in Mozambique and just like in Nigeria in 2015, some rumpty tumpty mercenary jihadi killin' and dark arts election #fuckery is always good for public support. Except it didn't reelect Goodluck Johnson and may not work in Mozambique either.
The Russians bring all the right tools and are happy to take the time it needs to remove insurgent groups. It's tricky tho/ Moz jihadis come from Tanzania and can use the ADF in DRC to bolster...which creates a problem of merc mission creep. Which Putin does not mind at all.

Good RUMINT re #Mozambique. Erik Prince's secret proxy merc helo deal for #CaboDelgado may have been bigfooted by #Putin in deals signed a month ago in Moscow by Nyusi. It looks like VTB and Wagner get the gold mine, Credit Suisse, FSG/EP and the saffers get the shaft.
Many remember when Prince bid on Goodluck Johnson's attempt to flush out Boko Haram from Nigeria and some friends of mine did it for wholesale. Since then Putin has been wiggling his Wagner in African leader's faces and offering a goodie bag that PMC's alone can't provide.
Same crap, different African election. The Russians are providing a complete electionfuckery/mercenary/guns/money package like in DRC, Sudan, Libya etc. People like Prince and even China can't match Putin's Hybrid "Pump You Up!" discount Strongman package.…

IS claims for the first time having a presence in #Mozambique, assigning the country to IS's so-called "Central Africa" branch. In a claim on 4 June, IS said it repelled an army attack on its militants in the northern Mocimboa da Praia.

Like very many people I'm alarmed at the massive threat #ClimateChange directs at the people of this planet, a threat that is already killing large numbers of the poorest. Unlike #XR I don't think this can be tackled in a single issue apolitical manner - that approach will fail
The 1st reason for failure is obvious, the capitalist economic system goes into crisis when growth falls much below 3% a year. That 3% means production will double every 24 yrs so even renewables replace 40% of fossil fuels CC gas production will rise
The second is that for many people a threat in 2050 is impossibly distant in comparison with paying the rent at the end of this week. We need a movement that addresses immediate in your face problems of low rages, high rents, racism & all oppressions

I’ve been researching female agency in anticolonial resistance and it’s an extremely interesting subject… I’ll be publishing on this in due course but can’t help sharing some pics here… (ongoing thread)
#anticolonial #resistance #femaleagency #empire
Firstly, Josina Muthemba Machel (1945-71), an important figure in the anticolonial struggle against the Portuguese in #Mozambique. #anticolonial #resistance #femaleagency #empire #machel #josinamachel
In 1964, at 18 yrs old, Josina Machel fled the country with the aim of joining the FRELIMO resistance movement in Tanzania, but was arrested and returned to Mozambique. She was imprisoned for five months.

Yasuke – The Real Life Afro-Samurai

(弥助 or 弥介, 彌助 or 彌介)

He was a Samurai of African origin who served under the Japanese hegemon and warlord Oda Nobunaga in 1581 and 1582.
400 years ago in Japan, on March 23, 1581, foreigners in large black ships came from a far-off land, seeking to convert the Japanese natives to their religion, along with them was a black page in their employ.
The strange imposing foreigner, standing 6’2 ft. (188 cm) with skin as ‘black as charcoal’, on his arrival to the capital quickly garnered a lot of interest from the locals, including that of a legendary warlord, Oda Nobunaga, who had him summoned.
