#Ukraine Banning Pro-russian TV Stations and Political Parties - #Disinformation #Overview Image

“This is a recurring #disinformation narrative by pro-#Kremlin media about the West’s purported attempts to interfere in #Ukrainian politics and set the #political establishment there against #Russia.
In reality, neither pro-#Kremlin parties nor #politicians nor #media are #persecuted in #Ukraine as long as they obey the #law.

En 2013, quand j'ai commencé à examiner sérieusement le rapport qu'on entretient avec les autres #animaux, je me suis dit : "La tâche est vertigineuse mais ça bouge. De mon vivant, j'assisterai au moins à l'abolition de la #corrida en France."

J'en doute de + en +.

🧵 THREAD L'image est une illustratio...
J’en doute non seulement quand je vois l'état du débat politique, qui repose entièrement sur des arguments inconsistants et exécrables dont la plupart sont de basiques appels à la tradition,

#PPLCorrida #24NovembreCorrida
mais aussi quand je vois qu'encore une fois sur cette question, les personnes qui défendent habituellement les intérêts des autres animaux sont presque seules au monde.

#Russian state television #Russia1 says when #Russians “reach the western borders of #Ukraine, the rest will certainly not be about” #Kiev. A “safe corridor” to #Kaliningrad “has to be created” regardless of #NATO “waving their #Article5.” He warns “taming of #Lithuania... [1/2] being considered” but “the issue is with” their masters in #Washington and #Brussels. He suggests striking #Energy & #Logistics infrastructure of #EU as the “spigot closes from here.” He says “#Nuclear weapons might be used.” [2/2]
Speaking on #Russian state television #Russia1, retired General and current #StateDuma deputy, #AndreyGurulyov, says “not one normal member of the military would go for” capturing the #SuwalkiGap with “#NATO forces” on “both sides.” He proposes instead a corridor “from... [1/2]

I don’t know why so many people working in wealth management keep requesting to connect and speak with me.
If you work in wealth management, I think you should know:

👉🏽 Nearly half of everyone in the UK that lives in poverty is disabled or lives with a disabled family member.
👉🏽 More than 600,000 disabled people in the UK are estimated to have £10 or less per week to pay for food and other costs.
👉🏽 Disabled people have to pay more to try and live the same lives as non-disabled people, but we have less or no choice due to inaccessibility, ableism and stigmas against us.

#SCOTUS news are shocking
Even tho no big surprise: This lets the dreams of far-right movements from Poland via France to Brazil come true: to repressively control the female body, thus her reproduction, thus her sex life
I take 1 personal and 2 political points out of this 1/4
As a (hopefully) loving boyfriend, the most terrible moments for gf's were when there was the slightest hint of a potential (!) #pregnancy. To disregard the, (as I'd say as a bystander) emotional horror women go through, is appalling. Women need #support, not #oppression!
Politically (also in #Europe), the far-right has succeeded by playing dirty: Disregarding all democratic traditions and fair play rules for electing #SCOTUS judges, this is a key example of how "just setting an example" is not enough.
No: Key institutions require tough fights!

Over the last few days, I have seen posts advocating @RoySocChem, @AmerChemSociety to #boycott Russian scientists at conferences/from publications. Some Universities in Europe have already done so. I am very, very strongly against the boycott!
Here is a🧵with my reasons 1/11
For disclosure - I am Russian, born in the USSR, with my family currently in Russia and in Ukraine
I have been living in the UK alone since 16yo, when I went to @DurhamChemistry for my UG
*I will use male pronouns for leaders due to the gender bias in power 2/11
I'm sad to receive full face criticism for the actions of the 'president' neither I nor my family/friends ever voted. I know he still totals 146% & an absolute 'support'. I was lucky to have been in a position to 'vote with my legs out of Russia', but most people could not! 3/11

The #Zapatista tour of #Ireland, a long aul’ thread (but pix and vids!) to wrap up

In 1994 indigenous peasants in the mountains of SE Mexico rose up against #neoliberal capitalism, their latest struggle in 500 years of resisting colonialism…

#LaGiraZapatistaVa #EZLN Zapatista women at La Realidad
If you need a backgrounder, here's Mick McCaughan, ex-Latin American correspondent for the Irish Times and Guardian introducing why the #Zapatistas matter:

27 years later, they hold liberated territory the size of Munster –

governing themselves from below

with a powerful #womxn’s movement

practicing #AgroEcology

and with their own culture, education system, community media...

Why didn't @sardesairajdeep ask #BillGates why he uses his #privatejets if [alleged] #ClimateCrisis is such a concern? Why didn't #RajdeepSardesai ask this #NeoColonist #creep about all the #controversy he is immersed in?
Why didn't @sardesairajdeep & #indiatodayconclave2021 ask #BillGates abt his #criminal #neocolonization of #Indian #Agriculture & hand in #MSP & #oppression of our #Farmers? Reason for our #FarmersProtest. Was this just another chance to grovel &bootlick?

#Peace & #Oppression -
I traveled through a few provinces in the north. We do have peace! You can not deny this. There is no more firing, there is no more bombing, people are no longer nervous about going outside. No kidnapping and you don't have to bribe the officials anymore.
This peace was not achieved through a handshake on a table and there was no celebrations on the streets. This is an uneasy peace imposed on our people through oppression. We only achieved this peace when our oppressors stopped firing. Unfortunately, this is a unsustainable peace.
#Talibans have always been a one Policy government. They are obsessed with security. Hanging, beating, shouting and humiliation is common on the streets. Any nation can bring crime levels to zero with this methods, but will they still be called a civilized nation!

ICYMI: Over 40 #tribal families, comprising 200 members belonging to the marginalized Bhil and Barela Adivasi community in #MadhyaPradesh 's Jamniya area, Khandwa district, have been rendered homeless.

The families have been living there since 1963, reported NewsClick.(1/n)
Those who lost their homes also alleged that the forest department, in a bid to cut them off completely from their lands, “sprayed poison” on their fields and demolished crops with bulldozers. Around 6 tribals were detained after some of them attacked the police officials.
Around 300 persons gathered outside the police station on 10 July in Khandwa to demand the release of the activists detained from the Jagrit Adivasi Dalit Sangathan (JADS) as well as members of their community. Soon after which the members were freed.

This is absolutely grotesque. Shame on @TVDSB & the teachers who enforced it.

"You'll be forgiven if you didn't know that some children had to be silent while eating their lunches & snacks... #Enforcement of the no-talking-during-lunch rule varies.."…
"Some #teachers are concerned that #COVID19 will spread further and faster if kids are allowed to talk, said @etfopresident, who represents Thames Valley's 3,600 teachers as head of the Elementary Teachers Federation of #Ontario."

#Trauma #Oppression #Conditioning
"In a Grade 2 #classroom, they have a hard time sitting still to begin with, and asking them not to speak, they look like they're being #punished...

Other teachers put on a movie or #television show to get the kids to focus on the front of the room, and not each other." ImageImageImageImage

On Monday, two Good Shepherd Collective members headed to #Ofer #military court & #prison to stand in #solidarity with Sami Huraini of Youth Of Sumud / شباب صمود and his family on the day of his trial.
Although we were unable to join Sami in the #courtroom, we sat with his family and dozens of other #Palestinians awaiting their family members, imprisoned and/or awaiting #prosecution in the #military #court system.
In Sami’s case, his trial was postponed, granting momentary relief despite a continuation of the bail conditions which prevent him from participating in #protests—essentially, keeping him from exercising his most basic right to #free speech and #resistance to #oppression.

Despite #historicalrevisionism (that's a polite way of saying lies), #public #symbolic #lynching holds a distinct and honored role in establishing the conditions necessary to the independence of these former British colonies.
Colonists enraged by repeated abuses conducting #lynches in #effigy of #Crown officials, often accompanied by "funerals for Liberty" in which, having been carried in a coffin to a prominent town location, seemingly deceased, Lady Liberty would rouse from her nightshade slumber.
While #lynching as a tool of #racist #murder and #oppression should be studied and understood by all that love liberty, the #noose deployed by those that invented the USA was a #libertysign, not a #murderweapon.

India Farmers Protests Goes Vogue.

Celebrities, influencers – & British Vogue - suddenly interested in #FarmersProtests that began in Nov. Despite MASSIVE resistance, the protests have been largely ignored by Western influencers/NGOs, etc. So why now? Let's explore.
Twitter (tool of empire) promoted the #celebrity endorsement of Rihanna/Greta accounts – while it simultaneously banned/censored on the ground Indian farmers/activists. While highlighting Western #influencers, Twitter had deleted approx. 250 protest/alt media accounts in #India.
Rihanna/Thunberg accounts share CNN article which references Access Now, "an advocacy group which tracks internet freedom." In reality, Access began as an arm of Avaaz (Purpose), to destabilize #Iran. Another instrument of #empire.

You see my faith before my profession. You see my ethnicity before my qualifications. You see my gender before my clincial experience. You see my age before my accolades. To say therapy isn't social justice or political guess what, its not a choice. You can't eradicate my Truth.
If I am Seen, my Clients are Seen. If I can accept my Truth, I can accept my Client's Truth.

No Counsellor/Therapist is 'neutral' in the room. Our visible identity (ethnicity, gender, faith, age, ability/disability etc) can't be removed, dismissed, ignored, made invisible. Our identity is reacted/related/responded to (consciously/unconsciously). It's how we work with it.

🔴 Du coup, quels sont les sujets « Sociaux » sur lesquels vous avez changé d'avis ? 🙃

Faisons une fois de plus primer le courage de pouvoir changer son opinion, que la honte de s'être trompé 👈
Personnellement :
- J'ai mis beaucoup de temps à comprendre le #BlackFace
- J'avais une posture abolitionniste de la #Prostitution qui a plutôt évolué (même si je ne suis pas encore arrêté), un bon podcast qui illustre la problématique du sujet :
- J'avais un apriori assez caricatural de l'écriture #inclusive, m’intéresser vraiment au sujet m'a rendu plutôt sympathisant même si je lui trouve toujours de véritables défauts.

- J'ai mis un moment à comprendre la notion de #Charge #Mentale dans le féminisme.

#Secularists: Should India/Hindu Sanatani/Christian western countries return the SAME #love, #equality, #humanrights, #supremacists VALUES of that Muslims?

A snippet of a discussion on halting Hindu temple building in Islamabad, Pakistan. #hypocrisy

Hindus will NEVER stoop down ImageImageImage
They broke the construction wall & are threatening. This is #Islamic #mentality.

Next time, when you see a Muslim crying for #humanrights, #equality, playing #minority or #victim card, cry #Islamophobia, #oppression...I hope you WILL have the guts to QUESTION the INTENT & GOAL.
OH, BY YHE WAY: it's a Facebook group called 'India Pakistan Friendship club', opened by a Muslim, Kashif Khundmiri, from Hyderabad, 8.5K members....moderated by folks FROM MIDDLE-EAST.

1/ This is a crucial time for #OntEd ted: 3 school boards will be hiring Directors of Education - @PeelSchools @tdsb & @DurhamDSB. With any shift in power, opportunities exist for a rise in justice-oriented practices and/or a rise in corrupt, back-door deals.
2/ School boards need to hire anti-racist leaders, *especially* as Directors of Ed.

Trustees - what criteria are you giving to search firms to choose your next Director? Are hiring committees racially diverse including trustees with critical, anti-racist mindsets & experiences?
3/Leadership of school boards MUST BE INTENTIONALLY #AntiOppressive #AntiRacist. It is the only way to close gaps.

So, what might this look like?

Here are some suggestions based on the research and preliminary findings from our current study on anti-racist leadership.

No longer is it necessary to pay attention to my 2019-2020 ramblings/warnings of a global economic reset. Instead, as of June 3, 2020, you can now hear it directly from the source: the World Economic Forum (#WEF).

The World Economic Forum: home of the #FourthIndustrialRevolution as designed and desired by the ruling classes in tandem with the world's most powerful and ruthless corporations and institutions.

Leveraging #COVID19 (& global #protest) for all it's worth, the virus is indeed the new war on terror.

"The Great Reset" - "A better #capitalism and a better world—to help shape the recovery from COVID-19, the Forum has launched the Great Reset Initiative"

So grateful that @javeedsukhera accepted my invitation to speak on #bias #implicitbias #oppression to @MacAnesthesia

Live tweeting some pearls!

Stigma has a negative impact on clinical outcomes
Shame is not an effective pedagogic strategy in calling out stigma. Shaming and calling out may actually make problem worse

Education may be helpful but it also isn’t enough alone
We often have conversations about #equity that are blaming (“us” vs. “them”)

Blame has an inverse relationship with accountability
