Protest and violence
सरकार की आंतरिक सुरक्षा के मुद्दे पर कमजोरी की शुरुआत होती है #CAA विरोध प्रदर्शन के दौरान ..... जब मजहबी उन्मादी भीड़ को दिल्ली जलाने की खुली छूट दी गई!!
अभी भी नागरिकता संशोधन विधेयक पूरी तरह लागू नहीं किया गया है
फिर संसद द्वारा कृषि कानून पारित किए जाते है जो यकीनन भारत में कृषि सुधारो के लिए आवश्यक थे...एक राज्य ( पंजाब ) के आगे केंद्र सरकार घुटने टेक देती है प्रदर्शनकारियो के द्वारा कई बार अराजकता की सीमा लांगने के बावजूद कोई ठोस करवाई न करना लचर कानून व्यवस्था का दूसरा संकेत था
हाल की घटना जिसमे नूपुर शर्मा द्वारा मुहम्मद पर कुछ तथ्य quote किए गए उसके पश्चात् भी समुदाय विशेष द्वारा सड़को पर हिंसा का तांडव हुआ खैर उनके संदर्भ में पत्थर प्रेम जग जाहिर है आधुनिक भारत में मस्जिद प्रदर्शन और उपद्रव है अखाड़ा है! ठोस कानूनी कार्रवाई उत्तर प्रदेश तक ही सीमित

Thread. Seeing the anniversary of one of Americas colour revolutions in China is coming up, I thought it was time to repost what was lost. There are many myths regarding the supposed #TiananmenSquareMassacre, knowing what we know now, how America fabricates information...
Take a look at that Iconic Image, the western media portrays #TankMan as a symbol of defiance, but what is the truth? Did you know he lived? Did you know he was actually stopping the tanks from leaving the square the morning after? Did you notice he has two bags? Lets see below Image
Here we have the full video, as you can see he goes on his merry way, his friends even give the soldiers a wave, that second bag, where did that go? A gift for the soldiers perhaps, but that is speculation. Facts are he stopped them leaving, and he lived

Skyrocketing #global #foodprices, panicked low income and poorer fringes of the population facing severe #hardship, struggling #emergingmarkets and #SriLanka on the verge of #anarchy - all wrapped up in a massive #market sell-off: what is happening 🌎 ❓
Things did not improve in April on #food prices:
the #FAO Food Price Index fell 0.8% month-over-month to 158.5 points in April 2022, but still remained close to the all-time high of 159.7 points in March.
#vegetableoil prices declined significantly (-5.7%) after hitting an all-time high in March under pressure from #palm, #sunflower and #soybean #oils.

In addition, #grain prices fell slightly (-0.4%), after also rising to all-time highs in March.

In our continued look at #protests and past civil disobedience in our #history, today we're covering the May Day Rallies and labour strikes of early 19th century #srilanka and seeing what we can learn from their success...

#GoHomeGota2022 #EconomicCrisisLK #GotaGoGama #lka ImageImageImage
The origins of these labour protests can be traced back to colonial rule. Many low-class native Sri Lankans worked in factories and estates while British business owners simply managed their monopolies. Wages were low, hours were long, and little to no facilities were provided. ImageImage
Across the globe during the 19th, people in these circumstances began demanding better rights. Many were inspired by the ideas of the ideals of the Buddhist Theological Society and the Sarasavi Sandaresa, the first unions were formed and teachers began striking in the 1890s. Image

With the recent #protests, national attention has turn the events of #OccupyGalleFace. But, I doubt many people truly understand #galleface significance and #history. Today, I want to take a look at it's #past and see what we can #learn.

#EconomicCrisisLK #history #GoHomeGota
Originally, Galle Face was a strategic military location for the Dutch and was named "Gal Gate" as the gateway to Colombo Fort. In the 1800s, it covered a massive area and was home to many recreational activities - cricket, racing, golf, and, rugby - that drew large crowds.
On May Day 1933, Galle Face served as a location for labor strike led by future mayor, A. E. Gunasinha. Men wore white sarongs and red striped banians and sang songs promoting the working class. Ultimately this would lead to May Day becoming a national holiday.

I've spent the past ~7 weeks conducting interviews about anti-Covid-measures #protests in #Vienna with
- young adults participating in the protests
- participants in counter-protests
- journalists
- police officers
- affected individuals
a brief 🧵 with some selected results:
1/52 Easter break = a whole week without interviews: seems like a good time to reflect on the 37 I've had so far & drop some research notes here. They're semi-structured interviews with narrative elements.
2/52 Notes refer to my sample and aren't intended to generalize to the whole group!

📍Protesters: Because I was interested in young adults (< 30 y), this sample is particularly different from the population, as the protests here were mostly attended by middle aged/older people.

"As anger & resentment grow in the face of social inequalities, many citizens-led #protests are being repressed w/ an ever-increasing violence. Monopoly of Violence gathers [] citizens to confront their views on the social order & the legitimacy of the use of force by the State."

The vast majority of CT is misunderstanding the #Canadian situation. The simple fact is that the #convoys have nothing to do with #freedom or peaceful #protests.

First off: the #EmergenciesAct is not martial law and is not above the law.…
The protesters are a fringe #rightwing #minority group, partly supported by the American #extreme right.…
#Sabotaging the delivery of food and medical #supplies, blocking the movement of #international goods and services, holding up ambulances and firetrucks, preventing people from getting to #work - these are #criminal activities and not peaceful protests.

Blowback & retaliation anticipated today (#Friday) for #PTIGovernment banning #TLP. Mosques & seminaries/madrassas continue to operate beyond #Pakistani state's authority & control. Large scale #protests by TLP supporters & sympathizers expected nationwide after #Jummah prayers.
Taking a leaf out of #France's book, #TLP supporters on #socialmedia are using the hashtag #IAmSaadHussainRizvi (#IamSaadHusaainRizvi - with a spelling mistake - is also trending).
It seems like decades ago, but does anyone else remember #JeSuisCharlie #IAmCharlieHebdo from 2015?
Not sure whether this is the 'official' account, but pretty sure this is how it starts...
