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...

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.

How are we to build a clear and trusting relationship with our family doctors if we are told to listen to only one group of experts? Am I supposed to ignore other groups of experts? And who appointed these “experts” we are being told to listen to? #TOP

Sometime in the past, read 15 years ago and re-calling on my senior role experience, I was hired to be an interim manager (temporary crisis control manager). In a semi-governmental organisation that needed to deal with austerity measures, policy changes, and non-conforming staff.
They gave me six months to analyse risks, write a proposal, consult on, and implement said proposals. The first few months, because I managed to play 'the being an outsider card', everybody was my friend. The following months, when in the process of writing the proposal different
concerning parties tried to influence me into adding their opinions and trying to secure to their jobs. Which did not always go down well, to an extent that I was berated, bullied and sometimes hated. Even sitting management and board members made their sometimes strong argument.

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.

India, has been thrusted upon the #Politics of #Protests since 2014. But its organs were developed before that.
#JNU & like-minded protests have taken great intensity across India & It is a drive of 50 Kms from #ShaheenBagh to #SinghuBorder.
Napoleon Bonaparte said “People are moved by Self-Interest or Fear”. Movement through Self-Interest is a PULL whereas by Fear is a PUSH. People have to “feel” cornered & that can only happen through PUSH & not PULL.

Aim is to create Anarchy & Social Divides for Political Gains.

#FahadShah unveiled #thread
Fahad is the founder and editor of the #Kashmir Walla magazine and claims himself an freelance journalist on the other hand rigorously publishes content on anti-#India sentiments. Mr #Fahad how can you call yourself independent journalist?
In 2017, Mr Shah was detained and interrogated by police for eight hours and confiscated his laptop. He was charged of #maligning the #police’s reputation.
Mr Shah is a master in highlighting the ill-treatment of #women and #children in #Kashmir through #photographs #articles. Whereas this so called sympathizer is accused of #sexual misconduct by many women in the #metoo movement.

"The System Kills Us", an association of mothers of disabled children, spent New Year's Eve in front of the Council of Ministers as a sign of #protest. The mothers have been protesting against #Borissov for more than 2 years:

"The System Kills Us" formed spontaneously in April 2018 as a #protest movement fighting for the #rights of disabled people (and disabled children in particular) as #Bulgaria's government has failed to adequately support them.…
"The System Kills Us" also joined the mass #protests against #Borissov's government and Ivan Geshev which erupted in July 2020. They were allegedly subjected to violence by #Bulgaria's #police!

#LAPD I usually don't comment on local news but this police brutality/lack of action extreme case needs to get out in the world and be addressed as it is unacceptable, absurd and might be a provocation. An almost bipolar pattern. Thread.
1. #LAPD attacked peaceful BLM protestors who gathered by the LA Mayor's residence for 13 days. They used batons on people as seen in the videos above and here.
2. #LAPD This was a peaceful gathering, with children and pets present. Right before the attack, video.

Hi I'm Goldy, I wrote a little rant👋
Contrary to popular belief, #Hasidic people are NOT in denial of the pandemic. This community was MOST impacted as Covid ravaged thru last spring. Too many families mourned loved ones and too many fell ill- it's not ignorance, nor denial.
Many contributing factors to the current state of affairs. You have the #Uneducated Leading The #Unvaccinated™️ - *certain* leaders encouraging Minyanim, crowded gatherings, blatant disregard for social distancing, and refusal to wear masks - even when they themselves got sick!
(I'm looking at you both, Aronim and Zalonim🤦‍♀️). Some sent out fliers to claim "accountability" but then showed up to crowded synagogues to lead masklesss services and mentioned nothing. Still, many other rabbis begged their congregations to comply but it fell on deaf ears.

Supreme Court will pronounce its judgement today on the question of balance between right to protest and other public rights like right to movement.

This larger question was posed before the Court in the backdrop of the Anti CAA protests at Delhi's #ShaheenBagh.

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul pronounces the order.

"Public spaces and public places cannot be occupied indefinitely."

"Dissent and democracy go hand in hand"

#SupremeCourt #ShaheenBagh
SC observes that it is the duty of the administration to remove such blockades of roads.

SC observes, administration's inaction to do so warranted Court's intervention.

You can measure the effectiveness of resistance by the fury of the response by ruling elites.

Accusing Holy Land Foundation Five of “funding terrorism” required a great deal of creativity but also a collaboration between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government.
