Edinburgh Place is full for the #HK rally in solidarity w #Uighurs . In our nearly 800 protests since 6/9, this is only the 3rd to stand for others. There was a small 1 at CUHK for Uighur uni pres rumored sentenced to death & 1 for Catalunya.
Great to see the #EastTurkestan & #Tibet flags flying at the #HK solidarity rally for #Uighurs. Our fate is tied to theirs. We all have to fight together for our freedom & our rights.
Free #IlhamTohti , Free All Political Prisoners at #HK rally for #Uighurs . Ilham just received EU parliament’s #SakharovPrize this week. He’s serving life in prison in China on the entirely false charge of ‘separatism’. His daughter @JewherIlham accepted the award on his behalf.

In #DemocraticDebate, Joe Biden says no one has more motive than him to opposes Republicans, given their attacks on his son. Does he hate all reporting on the diamond Hunter took from UN briber CEFC China Energy, which made same moves with UNSG @AntonioGuterres?
@antonioguterres @FUNCA_info @MatthewLeeICP @DanGarrett97 In #DemocraticDebate, @JudyWoodruff just asked about "one million #Uighurs" locked up in #Xinjiang. Now Steyer calls China a "frenemy." To UNSG @AntonioGuterres, it's just friend- they try to buy oil company of Gulbenkian which in turn made payments to Guterres
@antonioguterres @FUNCA_info @MatthewLeeICP @DanGarrett97 @JudyWoodruff @uyghurproject In #DemocraticDebate, @amyklobuchar calls out Mayor Pete, praised @SenWarren for starting @CFPB - does she know that CFPB is now hiding mortgage data from the public, and delaying Inner City Press' FOIA on it? innercitypress.com/foia2cfpbhmdai…

1/ Fun fact from today’s Islamic History lecture @UniofOxford: the Khazars, a nomadic people from the S. Russian steppe, converted to #Judaism in ca. 9th. Here, a Khazar coin based on an Islamic model swaps “#Muhammad is the Messenger of God” for “#Moses is the Messenger of God”!
2/ Specifically, the Khazar king and his court are said to have converted. This model of top-down religious change happened all over the late antique and medieval worlds, but is most commonly associated with #Christianity and #Islam (not #Judaism!)
3/ The other great example of state conversion to #Judaism is the kingdom of Himyar in S. Arabia. The conversion was so thorough that after 380, pagan inscriptions disappear, replaced by inscriptions with Hebrew/Aramaic words (shalom, amen, kanisat) & names (Isaac, Judah, Joseph)

I wonder if #LeBronJames had a more difficult week the 21st Century slaves whom he ignores by giving China a pass for dollars?
What he fails to see is that today's plantations make sneakers, gear, phones, electronics & things besides raw cotton and tobacco.
@KingJames is like a northern cotton fabric maker of the 19th Century, thinking it is never a polite time to speak ill of the slave owners in the south. But always knowing his supply of cheap materials relies upon slave labor, even if he doesn't own them himself.
In the 21st Century, Nike & the other manufacturers are the slave holders. The people in China running their plants are the overseers. The Chinese Communist Party & government are the Confederacy, Democrats & state governments that protected the 'right' to own slaves.

#HonKong Thread: Hong Kong protesters abandoned Facebook for other platforms - "Facebook is not a useful tool for the movement except for those celebrities and parties, on which they make announcements and deliver statements." euronews.com/2019/07/12/hon…
The 2014 Hong Kong generation was dependent on Facebook. Now, "most young people don't use Facebook anymore & turned to Snapchat or Instagram." At the core of the issue is Facebook's algorithm, which prioritizes posts triggering an intense debate in the comments.
"In 2014, Facebook amplified the disagreements between the various "school of thoughts". EconReporter wrote. "In 2014, the movement had no experience and leaders did not know how to handle it and promote democratic decisions within it," Han Mei said.
