China's Baidu has blank spots in its mapping platform. We used those blank locations to look for the network of prisons and internment camps in Xinjiang, where up to a million Muslim minorities have been detained. Here's how we did it. buzzfeed.com/alison_killing/…

A lot of anonymous OSINT aggregators have gained following with the war in Ukraine, and often cause more harm than good. If you follow one, ask yourself - Do they post reliable info or jump at rumours? - Do they overly hype news? - Do they make the debate worse? If yes, unfollow.

Home. In fact it’s come home. A sentence I thought I’d never write. I’ve gone. Thank you Lionesses.

I love how these idiots see NATO intel behind everything, just demonstrating how full of shit they are. #NAFO

I'll be heading back stateside in the fall, after a memorable decade in Asia. I can't say enough good things about my teammates - they are creative, humorous, generous & enormously resilient, helmed by the unflappable @CrawCoverage. Apply for the job! 😃 washpost.wd5.myworkdayjobs.c…

The end goal of the groomer panic, for the neo-Nazis driving UK protests, is to make it impossible to be safely and openly queer in public, and eventually to roll back LGBTQ+ rights. You cannot separate that from the broader movement. The narrative is entwined with fascism.

The revelations about Frontex get worse and worse - the leaked EU ombudsman review found that they consistently covered up push backs and human rights abuses by the Greek coastguard and went out of their way not to engage with human rights concerns
❗EXCLUSIVE: We got our hands on the secretive 129 p. OLAF investigation into @Frontex. It proves the Greek Coast Guard systematically commits pushbacks that FX knew all about - but covered it all up, as @derspiegel and partners have long reported spiegel.de/ausland/frontex-s… 1/20

This is a great thread and report on the XPCC in Xinjiang, a paramilitary org which oversees many of the camps, owns a large swathe of XJ companies and is involved in forced labour and forced relocations of Uyghurs. Fantastic work from @LauraTMurphy @nyrola and @ReasonablyRagin
Today, @shulawcrim released a new report, which I co-wrote with @nyrola & @reasonablyragin “Until Nothing Left” about the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps & its egregious human rights violations in the Uyghur Region 🧵🧵🧵 shu.ac.uk/helena-kennedy-cen…

When people on the internet tell you to die, once, twice, you can laugh about it. When it happens enough times, however, you begin to take it in. When you know a nation-state has unlimited resources to target you and they are targeting you, the air around you begin to thin out 1/
With the Chinese government and its supporters sending me utterly deranged death threats saying they hope I’m “raped to death in prison,” please know this if anything ever happens to me: I will never, ever, ever hurt myself. If something happens to me it was the CCP

An Australian arrested in London over hoax bomb threat allegations claims he’s been framed by China. @DrewPavlou was held for nearly 24 hours after the Chinese embassy reported a bomb threat from an email address matching his name. He joins us from London. #TheProjectTV

Numerous explosions in Odesa minutes ago, reports of the port being targeted. Ink not yet dry on yesterday’s grain agreement.

Omg, this one is so bad. 'He put his napkin on his lap. Most people I’ve been on dates with don’t do that and it bothers me. But he didn’t wait for me to eat or drink first.' theguardian.com/lifeandstyle…

I went to the London Chinese Embassy to hold a small peaceful protest and the Embassy reported me to UK police as a bomb threat. UK Police handcuffed me in stress position and held me incommunicado for 23 hours with no access to lawyers. Facing 7 years in prison. PLEASE SHARE
