With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

#NewDealForNature
Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

Just doing a little late night perusing of INGO's statements of solidarity with the Black community from this week... #DevCommsNerd

While some mentioned how important diversity was, NOT ONE mentioned starting where they are and changing their own governance and leadership. /1
Not the biggies like @WorldVisionUSA, @CARE, @CatholicRelief, @SavetheChildren. Not the "cool" ones like @charitywater or @PIH or @Heifer or @Ashoka or @OxfamAmerica. Not the humanitarian ones like @mercycorps or @RESCUEorg or @MSF_USA. Not @PlanUSA. Not @PactWorld. Not @fhi360.
When it comes to anti-Black racism work and #globaldev or #socialgood work, we have to start right where we are.

No more "statements" and intellectualization and crappy DEI training, please. how-matters.org/2020/06/01/way… /3

New National Security Strategy of #Poland is quite a solid and healthy document, with an adequate understanding of the current and near-future threats. it identifies the "neo-imperial policy" of #Russia as the most serious threat, "pursued also by means of military force". 1/13
2/13 It warns of an outbreak of a conflict "originating from a violent escalation as a result of an incident" due to the #Russia/n "below the threshold of war" activities that could provoke such a conflict, including an international one.
3/13 The document explicitly highlights the increase in internal tensions within the #EU/#NATO as well as actions undertaken by external entities as a "noticeable risk of undermining the coherence of the positions and actions of the member states of NATO and the EU".

I am sharing this thread In response to @bonthurammohan @CommissionrGHMC @CPHydCity decision to withdraw passes issued to NGOs engaged in relief work.

According to @ndmaindia:
The role of NGOs remains crucial in all phases of disaster management namely relief, response. @KTRTRS
rehabilitation, reconstruction, recovery & mitigation.
Recent trends with respect to management of natural disasters have highlighted the role of NGOs as a vital stakeholder in the relief & response efforts especially
to facilitating communication & coordination between administn
and the affected community..

NGOs have grass-root presence and strong linkages with the communities, and can readily respond to the needs of the affected community.

Aus aktuellem Anlass ein #Thread zu der Frage, wie Kampagnen-#NGOs Schindluder mit Pseudowissenschaftlichkeit, Halbwahrheiten, schlampigen Zitaten und uralten Zahlen treiben am Beispiel von @foodwatch_de.
Die Essensretter (Eigenwerbung) gaben heute eine Pressemitteilung heraus, in der sie behaupten "jedes Jahr" sterben 200.000 Menschen" an Pestizide. Das, so behauptet @foodwatch_de weiter, schätzen die Vereinten Nationen. Gehen wir dem mal auf den Grund!
foodwatch.org/de/pressemitte…
Die angebliche Quelle für die Schätzung der UN ist ein Dokument aus dem Jahre 2017. Da schätzt die UN aber gar nicht, wie behauptet, selbst, sondern verweist auf eine wissenschaftliche Veröffentlichung, Fußnote 2.

#Assange Extradition to US Hearing Begins. Media Asks: “How did we get here?”. I tell you how. A disease far worse than Coronavirus- “Chronic Apathy.” Here, I’ll phrase & hashtag it #Chronapathy !!! - - - rt.com/news/481432-as… #
With 19 years of experience in whistleblowers cases, as the founder & director of the only Gov Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC), I can tell your this much: This is the worst period in the history of whistleblowing. From the consequences to the public apathy. #Assange #ChronApathy
What happened to all the “freedom” organizations (NGOs), civil liberties and Human Rights groups? Where are they? Where have they been? And look what “Liberal” Western countries pro “wars to export democracy” are doing & practicing in their own backyard! #Assange #ChronApathy

"It is increasingly clear that much of the blame for the seriousness of the #coronavirus’s spread can be placed on the culture of lying & covering up bred by #China’s deeply flawed & highly corrupted Marxist-Leninist system 'with Chinese characteristics.'"
ucanews.com/news/chinas-wa…
"Yet it’s also worth reflecting on the limited tools that the #Chinese government has to deal with the situation due to its parallel wars on both #religion & #civil society. The two are closely related as across the world the Catholic Church, Protestant denominations, Islam..."
"Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism & most other organized religions play an outsized role in civil society through religion-backed organizations & charities devoted to humanitarian services. The Catholic Church has traditionally been very active in providing such services..."

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

Activists urge #tobacco-style curbs on oil and gas #lobbying in EU

politico.eu/article/tobacc…

A thread 👇
Some NGOs, emboldened by a @WHO approach towards meetings with #tobacco lobbyists (@FCTCofficial art. 5.3), now want the #EU to shut the door to legitimate #lobbying by coal, #oil and gas lobbyists, too. What’s next? Every corporate lobbyist? #SlipperySlope?
Several reasons why this nonsensical: first, very few #NGOs or public officials have the deep expertise in energy markets that energy companies do. Excluding them from the process would sideline relevant legal #stakeholders who are affected by the proposed legislative changes.

Spygate and the Russian-collusion Narrative
Intelligence agencies, and many outside of our government, all colluded to take down our elected President. This in itself shows just how real Deep State is.

#CPEC is the backbone of #Pakistan's Grand Strategy. Enemies are keen to foment trouble in #Balochistan to sabotage the project.
A hike in terror attacks has been witnessed in the past months in Balochistan especially in areas in proximity to #Gwadar which is part of #Sabotage.
Killings of #Hazara Shias in Balochistan helps the enemy kill two birds with a stone.
1. It causes trouble in Balochistan,
2. It decreses confidence of Shias in the state of #Pakistan and leads to anger and frustration in Gilgit Baltistan, The Critical province in #CPEC.

Der Vorwurf der #Pull-Effekte an NGOs wie ist zurück. Sebastian #Kurz wirft NGOs in der @welt vor, dass durch ihre Einsätze mehr Menschen fliehen und mehr Menschen sterben. Dieser Vorwurf ist historisch und empirisch nicht haltbar. Ein Thread #Seenotrettung #SeaWatch3
In dieser Studie des European University Institute Florenz wird deutlich: Lange bevor die Seenotrettungs-NGOs aktiv wurden stiegen die Zahlen über das zentrale Mittelmeer beträchtlich an, von knapp unter 50.000 im Jahr 2013 auf über 150.000 im Jahr 2014: cadmus.eui.eu/bitstream/hand…
🇮🇹 hatte seinerzeit das Seenotrettungsprogramm #MareNostrum aufgelegt. Es waren Politiker wie der 🇩🇪 Innenminister Thomas de Maizière die auf ein Ende der Mission gedrängt haben. Ausgerechnet die BILD-Zeitung hatte damals die Vorgänge valide rekonstruiert

People in rich countries don’t often hear stories about organized people improving their communities in the Global South or strong organizations pushing their governments to change policies that hurt poor people. #DevComms #aid #globaldev #NGOs /1
Rather, the aid system is built on an assumption that outside experts have the knowledge, skills, and resources that are lacking in poor countries and communities. /2
Also the aid system is predicated on marketing materials that show needy, desolate, and despondent individuals unable to help themselves, and so, the stories persist, even if they little resemble what is happening in reality, on the ground. /3

After 70 years of imperial/neoliberal indoctrination the web of lies is so obviously absurde (9/11, Skripal, WH = ISIS, etc.), that it is dissoluting. The empathetic humanity connects, closes ranks and sends their eternal psychopathic rulers and their lackeys into nowhere land.
The "evil empire" is a lifelong three year old child. I certainly loved my children at that age too, however only because they created not only a surreal mess, but also made steady progress.

A great documentary about psychopathy and society:
The elite invented "democracy" to protect them from the empathetic people. The media are their means for misleading the people sedated by "democracy". This is definitely a bad thing since the people have become educated and the elite almost totally insane.

#QAnon

This short thread will incorporate #Q's messaging to EXPLAIN why #HRC, #Traitor44, #Brennan, and others who are part of the #DeepState/#Coup are still walking the streets. There is an necessary ORDER to things:
1. Neutralize the threat.
2. Neutralize the orgs.
3. Arrest!
#Q has used a form of the word protect 53 times. The overridding context has been that the #Cabal has used the #Threat against US (#WWIII, #NuclearThreat, #FaleFlags) as protection, as in a hostage threat. #Q's 1st order of business has been to protect/safeguard US.
Reread early #Q:
