1/7 Eine Zusammenfassung der Kernaussagen zum Artikel v. Hajo Funke (s. u.) in einem Threat, der diejenigen aufrütteln soll, die erwägen, ihr Kreuz bei der #AfD zu machen.…
"Alle drei Spitzenkandidaten – Andreas #Kalbitz, Jörg #Urban u. Björn #Höcke – sind rechtsextrem, teils neo-nationalsozialistisch u. wollen eine Zerstörung des Ganzen, d. „Systems“ wie sie sagen."

Merke: Wer die Zerstörung d. Systems will, wählt auch d. destruktiven Folgen.
"Alle drei Spitzenkandidaten betreiben eine gnadenlose Hetze gg. alle ethnischen u. religiösen Minderheiten".

Merke: Diese Form des Umgangs mit Minderheiten erinnert an das dunkelste Kapitel deutscher Geschichte, das sich nicht wiederholen darf.

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

Appeal to #Hindu Parents: Don’t Let Your #Daughter be the next #Riya/#Maansi/#khhusi.🙏

Recently 3 Hindu girls have been brutally snatched away from Hindu samaj. Their names should be etched in our collective memory: Riya, Maansi, and Khushi. They all fell prey to #Muslim men.
They were all #beautiful: two of them were successful models, and the third was an aspiring air-hostess. They were #modern, #urban, #educated. Khushi had been a finalist in the #Miss_India pageant recently. #LoveJihad 😷
#Maansi had executed several #modelling contracts. #Riya was sure to make it to a top airline as a hostess. They were all below 21. #lovejihad 🔇

#Khushi was only 19,
#Maansi was 20,
#Riya 21 years old.

@ErnstRoets Thanks for retweets. Add up all these murders in urban and rural areas, with those maps - and the deliberate attack-patterns against whites grow a lot clearer.

#UrbanNaxals - A Thread
Earlier today, Human rights activist and writers, Sudha Bharadwaj, Arun Ferreira, Vernon Gonsalves, Gautam Navlakha, Varavara Rao were arrested. They have all been called “#urban Naxal”, a label that is now used even by the Pune Police to "justify" these arrests.
"#UrbanNaxal " is misnomer at best, and a deeply toxic, flawed analytical category that can in practice include any citizen who disagrees with the right-wing status quo.
