Congratulations, you are writing a news article on #Haiti! It is a country with a vibrant culture and a rich history. Here are a few things to consider as you write your article.
1/ Is the word “violence” in your headline or article? Violence does happen in Haiti, just like everywhere else. If you are referring to political violence, please make clear attributions: Who is causing the violence? Who is the victim of the violence?
2.1/ There are #protests happening in #Haiti. How do you want to describe them? Before using words like “looting” or “rioting,” consider this: are you describing the protests with the same language you use to describe similar events in other countries?

On #Twitter the #GiletJaunes hashtag is more of an #American far right #disinformation campaign. Some of these accounts could be #Russian? I don't know.

#Paris #YellowVest
This network graph was collected using the #GiletJaunes and #YellowVest hashtags on December 2 2018
You can clearly see that the hashtags are dominated by Pro-#Trump and #QAnon accounts.
I have made the #disinformation accounts red and abnormally large.
Here is a spreadsheet with the information for each node on the graph.

September 9 #Russia: Protests in 85 cities today against law raising retirement age. First rallies (& arrests) in Far East, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk. Signs: "I Want to Live to See My Pension" "It's Not Reform; It's Robbery" "Stop lying"
Livestream @Navalny
@navalny Putin raised Russia's pension age b/c wars—in Syria, Ukraine, on democracy—and corruption are costly. He tries silencing opposition, arresting their leaders, beating supporters. Russians persist. They protest bc they believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything✊
@navalny More photos from today's #protests in #Russia against Kremlin pension reform plan to raise the retirement age, via @novaya_gazeta. Among the great signs: "Putin, when are you going to retire?" novayagazeta.ru/articles/2018/…

Refuse Fascism's flyers and website CLAIM they want peaceful protest until Trump is out of office. Sounds harmless, until you look closely at who is behind this group. Hint: Nov. 4th is RUSSIA'S UNITY DAY. 🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺 Thread 1 #ThursdayThoughts #GeeksResist #RefuseFascism
Refuse Fascism's flyers and website seem innocuous. That's intentional. The "Who Is Refuse Fascism?" page on their site has no reference to the Revolutionary Communist Party or RF founder Bob Avakian. 2 #BobAvakian #Nov4ItBegins #nov4thitbegins #Nov4 refusefascism.org/about-contact/
But this Refuse Fascism website post from July is an invitation to all who participated in RF's July 15th "event" to join with the Revolutionary Communist Party led by Bob Avakian. 3 #RCP #Avakian #Communism #revolution
