JUST IN: More than 3.5 million children are at risk of dropping out of school as a result of the drought in the #HornofAfrica, according to the #UnitedNations, amid worries that the situation could result in "a lost generation" who miss out on education. Image
Unicef @UNICEF currently predicts that 3.6 million children in Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia are at risk of dropping out of school as a result of the cumulative pressure on households caused by the continuous drought.
That figure has more than tripled in the last six months, from 1.1 million, indicating how serious the situation is in many locations.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
They are collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future''

Gone are the days when global heating was in the future. Human-induced heating's wrecking lives & livelihoods TODAY. Every day of higher emissions increases human poverty & misery. Continuing on the path of rising emissions is senseless, selfish and avoidable

(string: beg) 19 anos atrás, um carro-bomba com 1-tn TNT mudou a minha vida. Na #ONU onde trabalhava no #Iraque, foi morto meu marido #SergioVieiradeMello e 21 amigos. Até hoje, nenhum tribunal tem nos oferecido respostas:Por quê? Porque a #ONU é imune à processos judiciais.
(string)Ironicamente,#Sergio era Chefe máximo da #ONU em #DireitosHumanos. Os sobreviventes do atentado gostariam de saber por que a imunidade não foi suspensa para oferecer justiça. Não estamos sozinhos:muitos são os que sofriram abuso p/ imunidade de organizações internacionais
Apos a repercussão do filme #Sergio da #Netflix, quis compartilhar um pouco sobre quem realmente era #SergioVieiradeMello, mas acima de tudo, narrar o que realmente aconteceu após o ataque de #Bagdá em 2003. Éramos uma família quando a bomba explodiu

Why is the #UnitedNations practising #apartheid with non-Palestinian refugees worldwide.
Why is there 1 body for refugees & 1 for Palestinians?
Unlike UNHCR, UNRWA doesn't have a mandate to resettle Palestine refugees & no authority to seek lasting durable solutions for refugees
Of the 5.4 million Palestinian refugees there are 2.2 million living in Gaza and the West Bank which are governed by the Palestinians!!!
UNHCR refugee numbers for a specific conflict decrease over time as solutions are found
UNRWA's numbers are increasing in perpetuity.
UNHCR has under 19,000 employees
UNRWA has 30,000
With UNHCR there are 2 ways to lose refugee & derivative status: cancellation & cessation. However, neither of these appear to apply under UNRWA as those refugees who acquire citizenship in a country within UNRWA’s operation realm

Last week was a significant (and worrying) one for those who watch U.S./Western interactions with #China and the #UnitedNations, for three reasons.

[1/5]
First, and most widely discussed, the High Commissioner for Human Rights's visit to #China turned into a (100% predictable) public relations mess. [2/5] ft.com/content/6ca09f…
Second, #China joined #Russia in vetoing a U.S. sanctions resolution on #DPRK, signalling a break with previous (uneasy) accommodations among the P5 on North Korean issues. [3/5] dw.com/en/china-russi…

Nachhaltige Mobilität hat positive Wirkungen auf Klima, Umwelt und Soziales im Einklang mit den nachhaltigen Entwicklungszielen (#SDGs) der #UnitedNations.

Doch was ist eigentlich soziale Mobiliät?

Gibt es einen Zusammenhang von Raum- und Geschlechterverhältnissen?

Soziale Mobilität ist, wenn sich alle in der Gesellschaft barriere- und diskriminierungsfrei fortbewegen können.

So UNSG Antonio Guterres is going to #Moscow and he will see Putin.

This is a positive step, as Putin was not taking the SG's calls after he condemned the #RussianInvasion of #Ukraine.

But the trip raises some tricky issues. [1/6] reuters.com/world/un-chief…
First, the SG should be very careful to avoid any "grip and grin" moments with Putin and Lavrov.

Lavrov tricked the @ICRC's experienced chief into an apparently jolly handshake in March, and will doubtless want to do the same with Guterres. [2/6] euractiv.com/section/global…
More substantively, the SG will need to have some clear "asks" and ideas for Russia. Options might include:

* Improving humanitarian access;
* Relief for civilians in #Mariupol;
* Suggesting possible frameworks for peace talks (but without making predictions on substance). [3/6]

We're in a Climate & Ecological Crisis, Sixth Mass Extinction, a threat to us all. Fossil fuels, though they account for over 80% of carbon emissions produced by humans, continue to be widely used. That's massively destabilising our biosphere, yet our Parliament says/does nothing Image

Let’s get this clear.

#RwandaMigrationPlan has been labelled a breach of international law by the #UnitedNations

It also wasn’t costed. So, rightly, because of illegality & failure to cost - the #CivilService refused to implement. This resulted in @pritipatel issuing ….
…. a ‘ministerial direction’. Which means she personally takes responsibility for anything going wrong.

If it goes wrong & she’s sued the taxpayer pays the cost. The ministerial code is overseen by @BorisJohnson - so she won’t get the push as he wanted her to do it.

#Racism

So, if it goes ahead, we have a breach of international law & the taxpayer pays for it & she won’t loose her ministerial job despite accepting personal responsibility.

On top of this, the policy would be checked out by @SuellaBraverman a lawyer. She won’t stand down ….

1/ Where can we find the best #investments of the next 10 years?

Simple. We need to look where the world’s wealthiest action groups plan on investing $7 trillion to achieve their vision of a new world.

Lucky for us, they lay it all out in their "#SDGs for 2030" agenda: 🧵 Image
2/ In September 2015, 193 countries of the United Nations endorsed 17 Sustainable Development Goals to be attained by 2030. 🌍

“The #SDGs provide a common and agreed upon framework to advance the world's future by resolving our most pressing sustainability issues.”⏳ ImageImage
3/ To put it simply, the #SDGs act as a roadmap, directing the efforts of countries and global brands to achieve the UN’s vision for a better world.

…and It doesn’t take long to realize how massive this agenda is. #UnitedNations #Microsoft #Google #Samsung ImageImageImageImage

1/ The fast-growing call to criminalize #ecocide is now beginning to be heard in the halls of the #UnitedNations! It surfaced in the high level speeches at #UNEA, at the Youth Environmental Assembly and the Global Major Groups & Stakeholders Forum. stopecocide.earth/new-breaking-n… #UNEP
2/ Ecocide was mentioned in two key speeches: by #UNEA5 President, Norwegian Minister of Climate & Environment Mr. @EspenBarthEide & by Inger Anderson, Executive Director of @UNEP. Both recalled Olof Palme, Swedish Prime Minister, first using #ecocide in 1972 at the first #UNEA.
3/ #Ecocide is mentioned in the preamble of the statement of the Global Major Groups & Stakeholders Forum, acknowledging that “adding ecocide as the fifth crime to the #RomeStatute of the ICC would have a strong preventive effect on destructive actions.”

Should #NATO consider placing a #NoFlyZone over #Ukraine️ ? I flew in support of a NoFlyZone in Iraq prior to the Second Gulf War and have some thoughts from a #Legal/JAG + operational perspective that I unpack for @just_security here. 🧵

justsecurity.org/80641/the-oper…
2/ A #NoFlyZoneOverUkraine zone does not equate to a "no-combat zone." Quite the opposite. It does not magically occur by mere declaration. It requires a massive military presence and military enforcement, a point made 10 years ago by @Schmitt_ILaw and others.
3/I sympathize with the no-fly zone’s animating idea—to protect human lives—but a #NATO no-fly zone simply presents an unacceptable, escalatory risk to the United States and its allies. Why?

#Russia & #Ukraine - What's Really Happening? [Backgrounder | Feb 23, 2022]

Pan Africanist/socialist Omali Yeshitela gives profound analysis of world economy in terms of #colonialism as means of production - a dialectic that connects entire world.

"Liberals & leftists are fighting to protect the
#UnitedNations & [] #NATO as if they were [] legitimate ... the UN was founded for the purpose of peaceful collaboration among the colonizers to maintain domination of the world..."
The Russia-Ukraine conflict "clearly represents a fracture in U.S. #hegemony. It's a threat to U.S. hegemony and it destabilizes the exact/existing kind of of political and economic arrangements that that have dominated the world up to now."
