◼️◻️ After the International call to protect the rights of prosecuted #Catalan civic and political leaders, #Spain is positioning agents in @UN and @EUroparl_en decision-making boards, directly putting in danger the protection of human rights.

◼️◻️ Another new member of the @UN #HumanRights committee is #China, recently tarnished by the #Uyghur concentration camps scandal. Digital gag laws, political persecution and police abuses are also in #Spain's track record.

@JosepBorrellF asks #Spain's Superior Court of Justice to close #Catalan delegations in London, Geneva & Berlin for "damaging Spain's image" based on documents intercepted by his toytown spy network and social media posts.
#BorrellGate

London

The delegation is accused of ''retweeting messages in favour of Gibraltar" and criticising Borrell's comment on us history: "they only had to kill a handful of Indians".

In this case, surely it was Borrell was "harming #Spain's image"?
#BorrellGate

London

Borrell's toytown diplomats found it "damaging to #Spain's image" that "there were barely 20 people" at an event with Parliament VP, @josepcosta: an Estelada on a table "looked like a coffin" and "people mocked it on social media"

The #Vietnamese Navy & Coast Guard have been mobilized & are in high alert status. The info running around in Viet military circles is that the Chinese ships are acting very aggressively and attempted to ram VN vessels. @CollinSLKoh @duandang @BonnieGlaser
The Chinese survey ship is protected not only by Chinese coast guard vessels, but also by Chinese navy ships positioned behind the Chinese coast guard vessels. The Chinese ships are near the DK-1 area of Vietnamese oil rigs & platforms.
Both sides are keeping things under wraps for now. There is no official information or media news about this situation. The situation is tense, but is not at the level of the 2014 oil rig incidents, for now. Pictures of the DK-1 oil rig area that is next to the contested area.

Why @krls & @toni_comin must be allowed to take their seats in the @Europarl_EN
"The essential step to become an MEP is to receive enough support. #Catalans understood this and delivered massive majority support to @krls, @toni_comin, @ClaraPonsati, and the whole list"
@boye_g

1
"#Spain's #SupremeCourt should suspend the national arrest warrants against @krls & @toni_comin. Both now enjoy immunity that the Supreme can't interfere with. They must decide to respect the law or not, but the little credibility they still have in Europe is at risk."
@boye_g

2
Asked whether @krls & @toni_comin must swear to uphold the Constitution in person before #Spain's Central Electoral Board before taking office, @boye_g said the rule was out-of-date, against EU law, and, if the #SupremeCourt got involved in this battle, it would surely lose.

#Spanish election: socialists win amid far-right gains for Vox party theguardian.com/world/2019/apr…
Turnout was 75.8% – well up on the 66.5% two years ago. Pedro Sánchez of the Socialist Workers’ party (PSOE) hailed the result and the high turnout as proof of #Spain’s desire to move forward and reject the reactionary policies of some of his rightwing opponents.
“The PSOE’s triumph – it picked up 38 more seats than at the last general election in June 2016 – came amid the continuing fracture of the Spanish right. The far-right Vox performed slightly below expectations” #Spain

(cw: rape) Rape laws in #Europe are outrageous. This case in #Italy - a woman said 3 men raped her in a train station elevator - is similar to La Manada case - a woman said 5 men raped her. The women were not believed because they didn’t fight back/resist bbc.com/news/world-eur…
Only 8 out of 31 #European countries have laws saying sex without consent is rape. Watch this important @amnesty video
European rape laws are “dangerous and outdated.” Only 8 out of 31 #European countries have laws saying sex without consent is rape.

In all of #Goethe's writings, probably nothing is more relevant to the frightening idea of the #NewWorldOrder (#NWO) than the following exchange in the #tragedy #Egmont:

"A l b a. Du sagst mir was ich nicht hören sollte; auch ich bin fremd.
..
..
E g m o n t. Dass ich dir's sage, zeigt dir dass ich dich nicht meine.
A l b a. Und auch so wünscht' ich es nicht von dir zu hören. Der König sandte mich mit Hoffnung, daß ich hier den .Beistand des Adels finden würde. Der #König w i l l seinen Willen.
..
.. Der König hat nach tiefer Überlegung gesehen, was dem #Volk​e frommt; es kann nicht bleiben und gehen wie bisher. Des Königs Absicht ist, sie selbst ZU IHREM EIGNEN BESTEN EINZUSCHRÄNKEN, ihr eigenes Heil, wenn's sein muß, ihnen aufzudringen, die schädlichen #Bürger
