How it is possible that @BorisJohnson is being investigated in the USA for potentially being compromised but nobody in the United Kingdom including the #bbcqt #media #Police have investigated this #crime #Brexit the #GeneralElection is days away #ReleaseTheRussianReport
The intrigue over a 'buried' probe into Russian spying deepened last night amid claims in security circles that it contains references to blackmail fears concerning Boris Johnson. #ReleaseTheRussianReport
One expert witness, who gave evidence to the ISC inquiry, has claimed privately to friends that he believes Boris Johnson was 'compromised' by a Russian businessman on a foreign trip in 2016

मध्यप्रदेश #Honeytrap मामले में मुख्य आरोपी श्वेता स्वप्निल जैन ने स्वीकार किया है कि उसने कई बड़े अधिकारीयों,नेताओं और मंत्रिओं से ब्लैकमेलिंग के माध्यम से काम निकलवाए हैं।इस मामले में जितना षड्यंत्रकारी श्वेता दोषी है उतना ही ब्लैकमेल होने वाले नेता और अधिकारी भी दोषी हैं।(1/7)
#Honeytrap पर नैरेटिव सेट किया जा रहा है कि ब्लैकमेलरों ने ही सबकुछ किया और ब्लैकमेल होने वाले नेता/अधिकारी दूध के धुले थे।पर इसमें ब्लैकमेल होने वाले लोगों का दोष ज्यादा है,वे देश के उच्चतम पदों पर रहकर ट्रैप में फसे कैसे?क्या इसमें उनकी जवाबदेही निश्चित नहीं की जानी चाहिए?(2/7)
#Honeytrap मामले में 5000 फाइलें अब तक मिल चुकी हैं।इसमें अश्लील वीडियो क्लिप,चैट और ऑडियो क्लिप्स का जखीरा है।इतनी बड़ी संख्या बताती है की इस मामले में कितने सारे नेता और अधिकारीयों ने अपने जमीर को बेचकर हनीट्रैप के सरगनाओं से समझौते किये।ये सब जल्द से जल्द सामने आना चाहिए।(3/7)

This weekend, I attended a conference that highlighted the importance of personal (individual) narrative for movement building + I just kept thinking about the lost opportunity in telling bigger, collective stories.
I want movies + binge-worthy TV series + novels + short stories + memoirs + graphic novels that help me imagine different, anti-capitalist worlds.
I want storytelling that shows me what collective housing might look like, that romanticizes (+ problematizes) being an activist as a daily, lived experience.

#CrazyRichAsians is headed for a monster opening, and it’s essential to look at why. A full 38% of viewers so far have been Asian—we’re COMING OUT for this film as we never have in cinematic history.

But another 24% of viewers are black or Hispanic: *viewers are 62% nonwhite*.
The book #CrazyRichAsians was based on was a NYT bestseller. When the target for the book is described by folks in publishing, they say “white female, summer read, book club, 35-54.” That audience isn’t who’s filling theaters—yet.

They’re the ones who might take this to $100M.
If you haven’t seen it yet, a small spoiler. After the first 15 minutes of #CrazyRichAsians, you will not see another nonwhite person on screen. Not even in background shots. And the only white people with speaking roles get played like dominoes. In the first five minutes.

A Letter to Chimamanda Adiche about Feminism, Egalitarianism and Me.

Dear Chimamanda,
I planned to write you this letter privately through A mutual friend but he likes to shy away from controversy. So I thought to write it here on social media, hoping it gets to you and you read it objectively and maybe we can discuss it sometime in the future.
In your @TEDx speech about Feminism, the part @Beyonce adapted, you described a feminist as a person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes. This definition/intention sits well with me as it doesn’t favor any gender.
