I see a lot of discussion about dissatisfaction among Ukrainians with the Nobel Committee's decision to award the Peace Prize to human rights defenders from three countries at once. I will try to explain my view of the problem. 🧵1/7 #NobelPeacePrize
Many of those who are now criticising actually support the awarding of this Prize to both #Memorial and #AlesBialiatski. Their work and fight for human rights and freedoms in their countries deserves enormous respect, there is no doubt! Ukrainians do not see this as unfair. 2/7
The problem lies elsewhere. A more global understanding of the situation. Ukrainians no longer want the world to perceive them in a direct context with Russia and Belarus. 3/7

BREAKING NEWS:
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the 2022 #NobelPeacePrize to human rights advocate Ales Bialiatski from Belarus, the Russian human rights organisation Memorial and the Ukrainian human rights organisation Center for Civil Liberties.

#NobelPrize
The #NobelPeacePrize laureates represent civil society in their home countries. They have for many years promoted the right to criticise power and protect the fundamental rights of citizens.
They have made an outstanding effort to document war crimes, human right abuses and the abuse of power. Together they demonstrate the significance of civil society for peace and democracy.

Nobel Prizes in all fields have to be awarded to government leaders because whatever they say concerning #UkraineRussiaWar is typically reported by media as truth with no evidence needed, and this is taken at face value even by many scholars. There is no need for science now.
Nobel Prizes in all fields have to be also awarded to
overnight experts whose views on #UkraineRussiaWar dominate media & social media. In Nobel Prize worthy breakthrough, they know everything about this war & #Ukraine without doing any studies or research on these issues.
And #NobelPeacePrize prize has to be awarded to all those who denounce peace in Ukraine and advocate war, including even nuclear war. This is astonishing achievement in advancing lasting peace in #Ukraine and in the world. As Orwell said, war is peace.

🧵Three by @ChawlaSwati

1/ On Tibetan Buddhist Nuns in Exile:

#OnThisDay @DalaiLama was awarded #NobelPeacePrize, the only #Buddhist religious leader thus honored (#MLK nominated @thichnhathanh in '67).

Many associate #Tibet w/ him+ other monks in red robes--

What about nuns? Celebrations at Majnu Ka Ti...
2/ "Some feminists from the West cud accuse me by saying, ‘The #DalaiLama is the authority but he doesn’t help the nuns.’"

Yes, @DalaiLama has often faced the accusation that the #TibetanBuddhist tradition doesn't give nuns the same rights as monks.

info-buddhism.com/Interview_Dala…

~SC
3/ 🚨🚨🚨 Of the 8 reps of #TibetanBuddhism in the current Parliament in Exile– two each from Gelug, Kagyu, Sakya, Nyigma sects– **all** are monks; so are the two members from pre-Buddhist Bon religion.

(Though ~1/3 of MPs from provinces U-Tsang, Dhotoe+ Dhomey are women.)

half of all his TOP cabinet ministers WOMEN! Yes, unlike the USA and other "developed" western nations, #Ethiopia actually demands half its population actually RUN THE COUNTRY! and you can thank @PMAbiy for this courageous act! #2 After 27 yrs of tyrany under the TPLF, @PMAbiy
released ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS and unbanned all political parties AND news outlets. Sound like a failed despot to you??? NO! In fact when he was awarded the @NobelPrize none of this was mentioned because his heroism with regard to peace with #Eritrea was enough to earn it, #3

"Our job, quite literally, is to serve the public," adds @StateDeptSPOX. "We aren't serving the American people especially well" if they don't understand especially well what we're doing and why.
Transparency and accountability need to be more than buzz words, says @statedeptspox, saying he welcomes an active press corps "to hold our feet to the fire."

Did you know that it is not possible to revoke a #NobelPeacePrize even if one is no longer worthy of the honor? Imagine #Hitler was awarded the #NobelPrize, he would still keep his prize after the #Holocaust. I think this is flawed and unscientific! bit.ly/370k0uV

That's not a far-fetched example. Something extraordinary is happening in front of our eyes. The #Tigray region of #Ethiopia is on the edge of genocide at the hands of the 2019 #NobelLaureate @AbiyAhmedAli. #TigrayGenocide

You may not have heard or seen much of the atrocities Abiy is committing. This is because there's a complete communication blackout in #Tigray. Abiy has shut down the #Internet and blocked roads so no independent reporters are on the ground.

1. Ethiopia remains one of the largest recipient of humanitarian assistance in the world & now further exacerbated by disasters such as continuous infightings, #COVID19 pandemic, swarm of desert locust & climate induced crop failure.
2. Worse-off is the recent call for bloodshed by the grossly incompetent leadership of @AbiyAhmedAli. The nation is inching everyday into balkanization because of his shortsighted policies.

Today #Ethiopia is entering civil war territory as federal troops deploy to take on #Tigray (TPLF) forces after what Addis said was an attack by the northern region against a federal military base. This is a disaster for the region, for Africa, for the world. Thread -->
Many Ethiopians on all sides hoped it would never get to this, although it has been like watching a train crash in slow motion for months. At each step of the way it has been possible for each side to de-escalate but everyone has chosen to press ahead with hardline positions.
Great hopes awaited Ethiopia when prime minister #AbiyAhmed took office in 2018. He took credit for continuing the policy of releasing political prisoners, and forging a peace deal with #Eritrea, winning the #NobelPeacePrize @NobelPrize as a result.

"This is a very big crowd," says @realDonaldTrump at second #Pennsylvania rally of the day. "They never talk about our crowds. They never talk about Sleepy Joe's crowd. Twelve people just showed up (in #Michigan)."
"I've had many, many disappointing opinions from the Supreme Court," says @realDonaldTrump. "That was a terrible decision" by #SCOTUS to allow #Pennsylvania to count absentee ballots received as late as the Friday after #ElectionDay so long as they're postmarked by Nov. 3.
"If we win you're going to see a stock market that's gonna go like a rocket ship," predicts @realDonaldTrump.

On Friday, @WFP was awarded the #NobelPeacePrize for work to address hunger. Conflict & hunger are closely linked, and I've had the opportunity to see the work of WFP and other food sec actors on the ground in several contexts. A 🧵with some resources I find useful on the topic:
Announcement itself is a good starting point nobelpeaceprize.org/Announcements/…, mentioning "efforts to combat hunger [...] contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and [...] efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war." Let's take those in turn:
First, on combating hunger in conflict, a great overview of evidence on effects of war on hunger by @apvjustino of @UNUWIDER here wider.unu.edu/publication/no… and further discussion on hunger & peace, incl gender dimensions, in Justino's co-authored paper here onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.11…

#NEWS: Amnesty International India Halts Its Work On Upholding Human Rights In India Due To Reprisal From Government Of India

amnesty.org.in/news-update/am…
The complete freezing of Amnesty International India’s bank accounts by the Government of India which it came to know on 10 September 2020, brings all the work being done by the organization to a grinding halt.
The organisation has been compelled to let go of staff in India and pause all its ongoing campaign and research work. This is the latest in the incessant witch-hunt of human rights organizations by the Government of India over unfounded and motivated allegations.

More than 1,000 people are outside attending the @realDonaldTrump rally and ~60% are wearing masks, according to my @VOANews colleague @pwidakuswara on the scene as the traveling @WhiteHouse radio pool reporter tonight.
Sometimes he has to turn off the politics on TV because "I can't watch me," says @POTUS.

First question about the @realBobWoodward interview.

"Absolutely not," replies @PressSec when asked if @POTUS misled the American public about the #coronavirus. "He makes clear that he didn't want to see chaos."
"The president has never lied to the American public about COVID," adds @PressSec.
