1/12: Will the UK #integratedreview of security & #foreignpolicy really make a difference? It was billed as a radical reset after #Brexit & does contain important innovations. But there are many areas of continuity. A thread, now we’ve had time to digest..
2/12: #GlobalBritain hyperbole was inevitable. A “science superpower”, a “#softpower superpower”, “an independent country free to tread our own path”. But to be fair, beneath the froth lies serious thought to frame international & domestic priorities.
3/12: The #geopolitical analysis is sober. A tougher, more competitive world where China looms large & old certainties no longer apply. Yet the core prescription is familiar. British foreign policy with global reach, defending liberal democratic values, rule of law & trade.

Minister Ma Hui attended @BrandFinance’s Global Soft Power Summit 2021 and shared his views on #China’s #SoftPower.
Ma said, China believes that in the fight against #Covid19, countries should put people front and centre. China has given top priority to protecting the safety and health of the people, providing tests, hospitalization and treatment to all those in need.
China has pooled all resources, rallied all sectors and adopted comprehensive prevention and control measures. 40,000 medics rushed to Wuhan during the Chinese New Year holiday. Chinese ppl come to each other’s aid.

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.

More on Access Now:

If I am to be suspended with so many other independent journalists, writers, which is likely... along with my brothers and my sisters... there is one more thing I must do.

And that is to share this single Lucy Parsons quote.

#Classwar Image
In response to negative comments, those unsettled by quote. The expression must be understood not as violence, but as self-defense. Freedom fighters, fighting against imperial invasions/occupations - fighting for their own lives & the lives of their loved ones, understand this.
Land defenders, Indigenous peoples that resist the #colonizers - that must defend themselves against a genocide that has never ended. Those fighting for their own lives, the lives of their loved ones, & the land to which they are connected & belong to. They understand this.

For EU scholars advocating for stronger #EU-#Taiwan ties, it’s key to grasp what our European trade offices (15: 🇦🇹 🇧🇪🇨🇿🇩🇰🇫🇮🇫🇷🇩🇪🇭🇺🇮🇹🇱🇺🇳🇱🇵🇱🇸🇰🇪🇸🇸🇪) do on the ground, and how much the EU 🇪🇺 & its member states can & want to do with/in TW. Long🧵 follows:
Met with Frederic Verheyden, #Belgium’s representative this morning. A compelling talk, in many regards, not least bc of our Bruxellois connection & good company @maxime_ramon Sharing a few reflections, starting w/trade & investment, essence of all EU offices’ presence in TW 1/9 ImageImageImage
#EU is the nr 1 investor in #Taiwan, but few people in TW actually know. Challenges will remain for the EU to leverage its raw economic power in a political context, as well as to leverage a joint image, given its fragmentation 2/9

Thread on #KashmirWalla.
1/n
It is high time to expose #KashmirWalla a #multimedia #weekly #magazine which proclaims to bring out unbiased views on #politics, #culture, #business and #literature but on contrary is biased towards sympathizers of terror ..
2/n
...They exploit emotions of #Kashmiri people by spreading #false #news based on #half-baked #truth and #spin doctored #statements. ImageImage
3/n
They are real enemies of #Kashmir as they are #misguiding the youth by #inciting them. They are radicalizing the #youth for picking up #guns and stones by painting false #narrative against #security forces and #govt of #kashmir Image

Hallo!
Wie konnte es China schaffen, die öffentliche Meinung zum #Coronavirus und den #Lockdown Maßnahmen so stark zu beeinflussen?
Diesmal ein sehr langer (sorry🤷‍♂️) Thread, in dem ich ein paar Beispiele aufzeigen möchte. Einen angenehmen Tag noch 😌 ->
1/25
Es kursierten zahlreiche Amateuraufnahmen aus Wuhan im Internet, die zeigten, dass China gezielt Falschinformationen produziert und verbreitet. Viele dieser Videos sind verschollen. Dieses Video ist seltsamerweise noch da "Es ist alles Fake" ->
2/25
Ein weiteres, in einem Krankenhaus in Wuhan aufgenommenes Video stellte sich später als nicht ganz so Heimlich heraus. In Wirklichkeit war dies Teil der chinesischen Propaganda. Das Video und der Inhalt waren vllt echt, der Whistleblower aber nicht ->

It seems that what few thought would ever occur is taking shape — namely, a convergence between Rouhani, IRGC & conservatives — and the direct reason for the formation of this unexpected triangle is the increasing threats of Trump & his regional allies.

Soleimani’s message showed that when it comes to national interests, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps will stand alongside the government as its most powerful supporter."
"Undoubtedly, this can serve as a model for other political institutions, currents and political figures in Iran that [now] … is the time of cooperation and convergence."

Beberapa hari ini saya datang 'mood' mengulas pasal industri hiburan Jepun dan Korea Selatan.

Jangan pula korang ambil kesempatan untuk hentam Melayu. Tujuan saya cuma nak memberi pencerahan tentang konsep 'soft power' sahaja.
Dalam hubungan antarabangsa, industri hiburan atau budaya popular kalau digunakan secara strategik, ia akan membantu negara memprojek kuasanya.
