IM: So, you didn’t get to see my cousin?

#TheKashmirFiles’ movie banned in Singapore

The film can cause enmity between different communities, authorities in the country said.

scroll.in/a/1023596
#TheKashmirFiles, directed by Vivek Agnihotri, is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from the erstwhile state in the late 1980s and early 1990s due to militancy. It was released on March 11.

scroll.in/a/1023596
“The #TheKashmirFiles film will be refused classification for its provocative and one-sided portrayal of Muslims and the depictions of Hindus being persecuted in the ongoing conflict in Kashmir,” the #Singapore authorities said in a statement.

#Deforestation: "#Consumption patterns of G7 countries drive an average loss of 3.9 #trees per person per year. Some of the hotspots of deforestation embodied in international trade are also #biodiversity hotspots"

nature.com/articles/s4155… #BiodiversityCrisis #WorldSystem
"#USA, #Japan, #Germany, #France, the #UK, and Italy, and several developing countries, such as #China and #India, have obtained net domestic forest gains. The net forest gains made in these countries were partially offset by importing embodied deforestation from elsewhere"
"Our analysis addresses two main questions: (i) Which #deforestation hotspots are driven by which consumer countries? and (ii) Which forest ecosystems, tropical rain forests or other forest types are the top targets of global supply chains?"

🧵 A thread to share the speech (with some edits to fit Twitter limits) that I gave in Hong Lim Park yesterday at the protest against the #deathpenalty in #Singapore, with further references in [ ].

⬇️⬇️⬇️
Thank you all for coming down today, despite the rain and the damp and the humidity.

By showing up, you’ve demonstrated your opposition to state violence in all our names.
By showing up, you’re also showing the many family members and loved ones of people on death row that there are people who stand with them.

What is Asia buying from #Russia🇷🇺?

Reactions towards 🇷🇺’s WAR against #Ukraine🇺🇦🌻 have been mixed in the #AsiaPacific.

#Japan🇯🇵, #SouthKorea🇰🇷, #Singapore🇸🇬 & #Taiwan🇹🇼 have joined in the Western-led sanctions effort.

1/ scmp.com/week-asia/expl…
But the two global giants, #India🇮🇳 and #China🇨🇳 have refused to condemn 🇷🇺.

Asia is geographically far away from the conflict and suffering less economic turbulence than Europe, which has complex economic links to 🇷🇺 and is heavily reliant on its energy & raw materials. 2/
Some Asian countries, like #India🇮🇳, even benefit from the WAR🇷🇺 economically as it goes on buying crude oil🇷🇺 at discounted prices. India has also refused to condemn Russia – its biggest supplier of arms – and is still keeping trade ties intact.

Horrible to see the degeneration of #Malaysia, a once upon rising star among #NICs and Emerging Market Economies, which served as a justified model and example of equitable development and growth, now, sadly, falling under the list of nations that are rotten to the core.

This turmoil started after DR Mahathir left power.
Since Dr Abdullah Badawi took over the reins of political power, Malaysia, as a country, has remained in a state of pendency.
All good work done in the 80s down the gutter due to bickering among UMNO and corrupt Najib n Rosmah Co

🧵 The @acadsingapore webinar on the war in #Ukraine is about to start! academia.sg/academic-views… I'll be live-tweeting as much as I can in this thread.

You can also watch it live on YouTube:
@acadsingapore .@cheriangeorge kicking things off: "There's a widespread sense that this war in Eastern Europe is some kind of historical milestone... but on the way to what?" Don't know yet, but we do know that there are power shifts and events in Ukraine are "triggering complex reactions".
Walid Jumblatt Abdullah up first on his sense of SG reactions to the war in Ukraine. He says it's true that SGeans are generally supportive of the govt. On foreign policy, there is usually *even more* support. So far, seems to be support or ambivalence about Ukraine.

🆕 ✨According to a new @theLancet study on excess deaths, IHME’s Haley Comfort, Spencer Pease, & Stefanie Watson discuss there were 18 MILLION #ExcessDeaths due to the pandemic in 2020 & 2021. Read their post about the study in @ThinkGlobalHlth
thinkglobalhealth.org/article/covid-…
💡What are #ExcessDeaths? It’s a measure comparing the trends of deaths in previous years vs. deaths during the #COVID19 pandemic. The abnormal spike in deaths during 2020 and 2021 → excess deaths
Deaths ⬆️ than expected: #India, #US, #Russia, #Mexico, #Brazil, #Indonesia, #Pakistan accounted for over half the world’s 18mil excess deaths, partially due to population size

#Denmark vacciné à 82%, 99% des adultes, 62% de 3eme dose et pourtant le nombre de morts continue à exploser
#LesVaccinsSontTotalementInefficaces
Pire, alors le nombre de cas s'effondre, le nombre de décès atteint les sommets Image
#Iceland : malgré 79% de vaccinés, 99% chez les adultes, 70% de 3ème dose, le nombre de décès n'a jamais été aussi élevé...
Rappelons que l'Islande gérait très bien la #COVID19 avant la vaccination avec très peu de décès...
#LesVaccinsSontTotalementInefficaces Image
#SouthKorea, c'est la cata : l'un des pays les plus vacciné au monde, à 87%, 99,9% des adultes injectés, donc ici pas question de #NonVaccinés : il y a 6 fois plus de morts après vaccination qu'avant.
