So many stiff mountains to climb so many drowned in defeat so many sorrows so many loves in the early hours so many partings so many hollow victories so many lies such boundless hope in so many voyages of the mind. From 'Tell Him', a poem by John La Rose: tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1…

Incendiary rounds going into the #Azovstal steel plant in #Mariupol - banned in civilian areas but not when the target is clear. Western liberals: "Save [NATO's Nazis in] Azovstal", just like "Save [NATO's alQaeda in] Aleppo".

"The former ruling class kept the community of actors in ignorance by means of various lies, corrupted it morally and materially, and finally scorned and despised it for what resulted from its own vices." workers.org/2019/03/41345/

This is future the ONDP signs on to with their hatred of BDS and signing on to the IHRA def
The repression of Palestinians in Berlin has reached new heights. The police are everywhere, arresting people for little more than having a Palestinian flag or keffiyeh. I was one of 20-30 people held by riot police for two hours in the sun for the crime of taking a group photo.

Smart move. NATO doesn't insist on basing but only seeks 'enhanced presence' which can always be turned into bases in fulness of time for tactical or political reasons. eg., first NATO allied units arrived in Poland only in 2017 although accession as such goes back to 1999.
Sweden opposes to stationing nuclear weapons, NATO bases on its territory - ruling party: go.tass.ru/jlHuQ

Our hearts & solidarity go out to Black relatives murdered in occupied Seneca lands. White supremacy means that no gunman is ever “lone,” this is how the system has functioned since 1492. Disarm white supremacy, arm BIPOC. #mutualaid & #mutualdefense #antifa #anticolonialism

In 2017, a 27 year old white supremacist radicalized by the internet killed six at a mosque in Quebec City; in 2018 a 25 year old misogynist killed 11 with a van in Toronto; just last year a 20 year old neo-Nazi killed a Muslim family in London. What news do you read?
Reading the news today, I'm feeling very fortunate to live in Canada - a diverse and tolerant country that values freedom while respecting human rights. We aren't perfect and building our country is an ongoing project but I wouldn't choose anywhere else. ❤️🇨🇦

Not only did the US NOT pay Nicaragua reparations, it pulled out of the World Court when ordered to do so, and then pumped at least $30 million into the country to elect an opposition party that would withdraw the case
Has the US paid reparations for its destruction of Iraq? Or Libya? Or Syria? Or Nicaragua?

Regarding the anti-Roma pogrom by Ukrainian nationalists in Loshchynivka in 2016: A young girl was murdered and found dead. An angry mob of UKR nationalists quickly started attacking Roma people, destroying homes, etc. Police, while being present, did not stop the pogrom. (1/x)

❗️When you say or write in your bio “ Slava Ukraini” know the meaning and origins of this slogan !
The Lviv Pogrom (1941)- How Jews Were Massacred by Nazis and Ukrainians It was the OUN of Stepan Bandera behind those crimes, the same Bandera, "hero of the Ukrainian Nation" with the same slogan of "Slava Ukraini" After all the evidence, shocked at all the idiots supporting this

It’s a duty of any news outlet covering or citing Bellingcat to inform its audience that Bellingcat is funded by the US and UK governments, as well as several spook firms that profit off of US regime change wars. Let’s see if @60Minutes does that. thegrayzone.com/2021/10/09/b…
“I feel it’s almost my duty, that when we’re faced with all this information showing terrible things that are happening, to put it out there,” Bellingcat founder Higgins says of the work his group does, including exposing alleged war crimes in Ukraine. cbsn.ws/3Mga04b

The fact checking over the Black Sun used by the neo-nazi shooter in Buffalo is surreal. "It's not just an Azov Batallion symbol! It's used by all neo-nazis!" ...Exactly? 🤔
There’s a lot of disinformation already about the mass shooter in Buffalo, NY. To be clear, he didn’t have an “Azov Battalion symbol” in his manifesto — it’s a sonnenrad (black sun), which is a common white supremacist symbol.
