1, #Germany's new government's #coalitionagreement of the @SPDbt, @Die_Gruenen and @FDP, on the #EuropeanEunion's #EasternNeighborhood: "We are working together with the #EU and its member states on the further development of the #EasternPartnership.
2. States such as #Ukraine, #Moldova & #Georgia, which are striving to join the EU, should be able to move closer through consistent rule-of-law and market-economy reforms. We will react decisively and reliably to democratic upheavals and be a partner to the democracy movements.
3. We want to facilitate civil society exchanges through targeted visa facilitation. We will continue to support Ukraine in restoring full territorial integrity and sovereignty. @UkrVerstehen @H__Ukraine @PromoteUkraine @NEC_Ukraine @intercourier_ua @UaPosition @CPD_UA @gazeta_ua

"Acceptance of a changing #energy sector is also critical for the siting and permitting of new infrastructure. Energy transitions do not mean an end to large infrastructure projects, successful transitions need them." [p 57]

#IEA #COP26 #4IR
In the 386 report on the metal road to the full #digitalization of the global economy & societies, not a single word about data centers. #Electricity for data centers is to increase 15-fold by 2030 representing 8-11% global demand. In one scenario, global demand could reach 20%.
In a worst-case scenario, it is suggested that communication technologies (#CT) could use as much as 51% of global #electricity by 2030. In this scenario, "CT electricity usage could contribute up to 23% of the globally released GHG emissions in 2030". [Anders Andrae] #COP26

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. @OttoKolbl

Warum in #Deutschland ein überfordert und fehlinformiert wirkender Armin #Laschet - dem zudem immer wieder seine #Lügen aufgezeigt werden - zum #Bundeskanzler werden kann?
Mit nur noch 17% Zutrauen durch die Wahlberechtigten?
Ein Thread (mit Hilfe von @GeorgeMonbiot) Image
Kurz nach der Wahl in #Grossbritannien 2020, die Labour verloren hat und die den "Politclown" Boris #Johnson an die Macht spülte, analysierte der Journalist @GeorgeMonbiot in knappen 10min. Video die Gründe. Brilliant und wichtig, vor allem für die #Btw21
Weil er schmerzhaft die Ursachen auf den #Punkt bringt, versuche ich im #Thread, seine Aussagen über Grossbritannien sinngemäss für #Deutschland zu übersetzen und die Beispiele zu adaptieren. Hat mich erstaunt, wie einfach das oft ist.

Kann #PegasusProject überraschen? Oder ist Problematik nicht seit Jahren bekannt? Ein THREAD zum Agieren der #Bundesregierung, zur anhaltenden Zusammenarbeit staatlicher Stellen mit derartigen Firmen und zu ihren schmutzigen Geschäften auf Kosten der Menschenrechte #ITSicherheit
(2) "Die Bundesregierung ist bis heute Teil des Problems" - hier zunächst ein ausführlicher Post von @KonstantinNotz zum #PegasusProject… #ITSicherheit
(3) Die Meldungen über den weltweiten Einsatz von #PegasusProject gegen JournalistInnen, MenschenrechtsaktivistInnen & Oppositionelle sind zweifellos erschreckend. Gleichzeitig können sie nicht überraschen: Seit Jahren weisen NGOs und wir auf die Problematik hin #ITSicherheit

mainly macro: A government out of control…
A #government out of control
The commitment that the #UK government gives 0.7% of its GDP as overseas aid is enshrined in law. #Johnson’s government decided to cut this to 0.5%, but didn’t need to put this to parliament because the cut was supposed to be temporary.
A large number of Conservative MPs were unhappy with this, and wanted to use parliament to reverse this cut. The parliament’s #speaker ruled their attempt invalid, but requested the #government to allow a vote on the issue. The government refused.

By Angela:
I'm fed up with reading that Mr #Corbyn was a weak Leader! Compared to #Starmer, I have to laugh. It took a strong Leader to change the Dynamics of the Party for the better, whilst at the same time maintain his objectives against a barrage of non support.
It took a strong Leader to reach out to people left broken with Agendas that havent helped those people that he took the brunt of... It took a strong Leader to rise above the spurious #msm, and a strong Leader to battle the #skullduggery.
It took a strong Leader to hold the #Government to account, and to get evil #Policies reversed, win By #Elections, challenge the #Opposition, and increase #Public support, which he did at his Rallies. That strong Leader achieved unity in a short time.

#Thread about #Opposition in #Burma #Government:

Burma's opposition forms an interim government against the generals
The opposing government that is forming wants to abolish the constitution that gave the military a veto right in the democratization process.
It tries to include the ethnic minorities as well. The army is fighting on several fronts.

Parallel government with great ambitions
The project operates under the name CRPH.

by @NZZ…
At the moment it is only a matter of a committee consisting of elected parliamentarians; They were never able to take up their function as representatives of the people and legislature because of the coup on February 1st. A government in exile is now to emerge from this dozen.

I don't do this often so please bear with me. Here's a thread about the alarming developments in #Greece & #New_Democracy's hard-right/#authoritarian turn.👇This photo by D. Tosidis (credit: EPA-EFE; Source:
ANA-MPA) can act as an intro to the thread. 0/…
So, is #New_Democracy govt driving #Greece towards democratic backsliding? Today after we witnessed yesterday's disgraceful images of #police brutally attacking & arresting protesting students inside the country’s biggest university is a sadly fitting day to pose the question. 1/
If we take #Hungary & #Poland as exemplary cases in the literature & as points of comparison, the answer is likely to be yes. The most common symptoms of democratic backsliding mentioned by scholars seem to be manifesting in #Greece since July 2019 with disturbing consistency. 2/

Everyone who says "#BoThSiDeS" can shove that phrase right up their backside, because of the @GOP using the turocharged capitalist equivalent to #warlordism in #congress and #senate, holding the entire nation as hostages for their reactionary bullshit!

And this "political #instability" and "#political uncertainty" is making the #USA a worse place to invest, conduct business in or with and to have to deal with in general.
Because Ghouls like #McCornell are just being #assholes for the sake of doing so and not facing #accountability for it!

I took this photo of the Moon and Mars last night with my phone. It might not be the best photo but believe me when I say they were both GORGEOUS. Or better yet: don’t believe me — go out tonight and see for yourself! A very dark fuzzy image of the nearly full Moon rising over
Now is a great time to look at Mars. It’s unusually close to Earth in its orbit and (for the same reason) pretty much directly opposite the Sun. It’s as though it’s doing its best to be a mirror for the Sun shining back at us, so it’s very very bright. This is called #opposition.
Here’s a diagram of the positions of the planets right now from You can see that both the Moon and Mars are in the opposite direction as the Sun, so the Moon is close to full & Mars is bright and close. #MarsOpposition A diagram of the Solar System showing the Sun (labeled Sol),

#Thailand #protesters already gathered infront of parliament house where MPs & senators are debating on whether to amend #constitution. They'll likely be able to start taking a vote at about 6pm #Bangkok time. This is continuation of reform demands #ไปสภาไล่ขี้ข้าศักดินา
#Thailand protesters say they want to continue momentum to demand for change & to support the activists who have been vocal in asking for new #constitution, reforms to #monarchy & change in government. MPs, senators will vote on 6 motions #แก้รัฐธรรมนูญ #ไปสภาไล่ขี้ข้าศักดินา
#Thailand MPs, senators to vote on 6 motions on whether they agree to amend #constitution. A least 1/3 (84) senators have to agree before motion can be passed. Senators are appointed & usually vote as a bloc. Constitution now has provided for their existence #แก้รัฐธรรมนูญ

BIG : Sanjay Singh strangling a marshal in Parliament

संसद में मार्शल का गला दबाकर मारते संजय सिंह , बाद में घूंसों से मार्शल पर हमला किया
This way #aap #sanjaysingh deal with #Opposition in Delhi parliament. In rajya sabha they threat the marshal and chair person of rajya sabha #bjp #FarmBill2020 #ArvindKejriwal Image
संजय सिंह को पता था कि उस पर माननीय का टैग लगा है इसलिए मार्शल तो हाथ उठाएगा नहीं।
... इसकी मार्शल से कुश्ती करा ही देनी चाहिए थी। इसकी बहादुरी वाली गलतफहमी 1-2 मिनट में ही दूर हो जाती।😅

1] The continued corroboration of state institutions & the #Mwonzora led faction of the MDC-T is quite exposing.

On a day where the #PeoplesAdvocate @adv_fulcrum is appearing in court & Parly is resuming, with news of recalls of MDC-A MPs, Harare is on lockdown during lockdown.
2] How can you deny the regime's underhand in this issue when #Mwonzora et al, are finding it easy to by-pass all roadblocks from Harare to Humanikwa?

Which essential service are they offering?

No wait, anything that is anti-Chamisa is actually an essential service in Zimbabwe.
3] The big question would then be why ZanuPF would be more comfortable with #Mwonzora as Leader of the Opposition?

If he is #mature, does it then follow that maturity was lacking in the #Opposition and equally so in #ZanuPF that the State wants to utilize #Mwonzora's maturity?

In a bizarre twist, newly-dissolved #Thailand #opposition party #FutureForward @FWPthailand has accused #PM #Prayut of working with ex-#Malaysia #PM #Najib to suppress the truth/information on allegations of #corruption regarding #1MDB. Mr Najib is currently facing trial for that
Now-dissolved #Thailand #opposition #FutureForward @FWPthailand also accused #Thai #PM #Prayut & his government of allowing #fugitive #Malaysian financier #JhoLow, linked to #1MDB scandal to travel in & out of Thailand freely while he was wanted by #interpol between 2016 & 2018 ImageImageImageImage
This comes 1 day before #Thailand #parliament is set to start #censure debate targeting 6 ministers including #PM #Prayut. But @FWPthailand executives including @Pannika_FWP who spoke at event accusing #Thai PM of suppressing info to apparently help #Malaysia's #Najib cannot join ImageImageImageImage

Heute wie gestern reagieren die Vertreter der CDU, darunter @Buehlandreas, auf den respektablen Vorschlag @bodoramelow allein mit dem Hinweis, dass sie darüber nicht reden wollen, sondern stattdessen über Inhalte. Doch konkrete Aussagen vermied die CDU. 1/... (Threat)

1/ Not responded to the #CofE's latest #statement before now because I felt it as a body blow - a blow to those members of the #body of #Christ who God gave me as siblings & with whom I am united, whose pain echoes in me though it is not directly my own - & I needed to breathe...
2/ The #statement is thin paper stretched over a seething mass of different, deeply held #identities, opinions, lives & #loves that stand in #opposition to one another, yet somehow mysteriously #united in #Christ. There are #cracks we cannot paper over, divides staggeringly deep.
3/ I am really hoping this #lawyerly #statement from the church was just a 'holding statement' till the proper review that is coming, made because the law on civil #marriage changing pushed them into saying something because clergy would need guidance straight away..I am hoping..
