Dear People of the Internet, Ben Borges from really needs your help, would you lend your profile for a one time social media storm to raise awareness about the OKCinfo ?
https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/70050-justice-for-okc-cult-survivors

 

A group of young victims of the sectarian drifts of a Buddhist community and its guru's abuses won the first round of his trial but must face an appeal. They now need your help for the second part of this long trial. https://mailchi.mp/6449f3824671/aider-les-enfants-dokc-obtenir-justice-justice-for-okc-victims-metoo...

 

Les hébergeur.se.s, leurs invité.es et les politiques 10/05/2018.
http://www.gettingthevoiceout.org/les-hebergeur-se-s-leurs-invite-es-et-les-politiques-10052018/


Depuis fin décembre 2017, les hébergeu.r.ses de la plateforme citoyenne font régulièrement appel à Gettinthevoiceout et Stopdeportations pour signaler la disparition de l’un.e de leurs protégé.e.s.La grande majorité sont déclaré.e.s Soudanais.e.S, Érythréen.ne.s ou Éthiopien.ne.s.

Nous avons reçu depuis le 27/12/2017 et jusqu’au 09/05/2018,128 signalements de « disparu.e.s » .

40 d’entre eux/elles ont finalement été retrouvé.e.s dans les jours qui suivent après une arrestation lors d’une rafle, d’un contrôle et libéré.e.s avec un OQT, ou retrouvé.e.s en Grande Bretagne.

3 n’ont jamais été retrouvé.e.s

85 des « disparu.e.s » ont été retrouvé.e.s dans nos centres fermés.

39 d’entre eux/elles ont finalement été libéré.e.s après plusieurs semaines/ mois d’emprisonnement dans nos camps de retour.
3 à notre connaissance ont été expulsé.e.s vers le Soudan après de long mois d’enfermement ( jusqu’à 8 mois)
31 ont « bénéficié » de la procédure Dublin et ont été ramené.e.s dans des pays Schengen ( 4 en Suisse, 4 aux Pays Bas, 3 en France, 9 en Allemagne, 9 en Italie,1 en Norvège, 1 en Suède, et une en GB (réunification familiale).

12 sont toujours en centre fermé et leurs dossiers sont en cours .

Bref, 70 des 85 personnes enfermées dans nos camps sont actuellement libres, que ce soit en Belgique ou dans un autre pays européen, après avoir subi un enfermement de parfois plusieurs mois.Beaucoup d’entre eux/elles ont repris leur route migratoire vers la GB ou un autre pays Européen après leur libération.Un d’entre eux est arrivé au Canada!

Ces chiffres qui ne sont que nos chiffres, sont le miroir du devenir des personnes amenées dans nos camps / centres fermés en général et témoignent de l’inutilité de ces centres fermés.

En 2017 6977 personnes auraient subi un retour forcé selon Francken, soit vers leur pays d’origine, soit vers un pays européen ( transfert Dublin ou une reprise bilatérale) , soit refoulées à la frontière pour des raisons administratives définies par l”Office des étrangers (35,45 % des 6977).
Stastiques de l’Office des Étangers pour 2016 à analyser avec prudence https://dofi.ibz.be/sites/dvzoe/FR/Documents/Rapport%20statistiques%202016%20FR.pdf

On nous annonce de nouvelles rafles, de nouveaux centres fermés, un budget consacré aux retours forcés qui est passé de 72.000.000 € en 2016 à 85.000.000 € en 2017.

Nos politiques suivent le tendance européenne, veulent être l’exemple à suivre: l’exclusion de tout “étranger” , la fermeture des frontières avec ses morts, ses camps, ses chasses aux migrants en Europe et dans tous les pays limitrophes.Tout cela au nom de notre économie, au nom de notre sécurité, de notre néolibéralisme, capitalisme, postcolonialisme, impérialisme…… .Tout cela par ce que nous sommes blancs, par ce que nous sommes supérieurs, par ce que nous sommes LE MONDE!

Ce n’est pas une crise migratoire, ce n’est pas une crise humanitaire, c’est une volonté politique mondiale: l’extermination de peuples et de pays pour le bien de l’Occident!!!!

On laisse faire ??????

“Agir localement, penser globalement”

LIBERTÉ DE CIRCULATION et D’INSTALLATION POUR TOU.TE.S
STOP AUX RAFLES
NON AUX CENTRES FERMÉS ET AUX EXPULSIONS
LES FRONTIÈRES TUENT

 


Your account is now unlocked, and we’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Twitter has automated systems that find and remove automated spam accounts and it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake. This sometimes happens when an account exhibits automated behavior in violation of the Twitter Rules (https://twitter.com/rules).

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience. Please do not respond to this email as replies will not be monitored.

This is the automated message @twitter is sending to all the accounts I managed to un-suspend in the last few weeks. None of these accounts are fully automated, most of them have some automation : for example they tweet when a new blog post is published in some collective or individual blog.
some do some auto-retweets based on hashtags or words.

None of them broke the rules by spewing hate, antisemitism, xenophobia etc...but still the "automated" system used by twitter suspended all of them without any consideration for anything.

some of the accounts remains suspended because I don't have access to it anymore (someone either changed the email or the phone number or both) and now it's near impossible to recover them.

my point with this rant ? Twitter is not in charge of it's moderation, robots and some form of biased AI is doing the dirty job and sometimes I wonder how come those account that alert about radiation can break the rules but the account of known neofascist are perfectly fine on Twitter ?

 

The "making of" of a Cult : https://boulderbuddhistscam.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/the-party.pdf

- For anyone that know how cults works, from the inside, this is a blue-print of how the Trungpa drift started in the US and how it is still impacting the US Buddhist scene decades later.
- The drift inside or is from the same root : charlatans posing as enlightened beings leading other un-conscious beings into madness in the name of "Vajrayana", the result was "teachers sleeping with students, the HIV positive regent "giving" HIV to other students, drugs, getting drunk, sex and later on : people destroyed by the folly of men's playing guru's with their minds.

Meanwhile the Buddhist non hierarchy is still lost at sea more concerned about their image, their sponsors, money than anything else.

This is an introspection or you might call it a rant on the roots of crazy wisdom in the West.

In short what's enfolding now in the Buddhist scene globally is a bunch of men's protecting their own Harvey Weinstein, because they can, because it's a business and because most of the followers of Buddhism in the West & valid for Asia too, are lost, having abandoned their critical mind, discernment, freedom by bowing to last century, autocratic like, sexist, machist "teacher & student" relationship.

Fuck the Samaya, right there !

There is no Samaya bound when the teacher & student are unconscious & drifting toward a very egoistic & materialist approach, even if all the folklore, all the environment leads one to believe in the decoration, the feeling of awe, the bullshit that these predators, manipulators can put in place.

There is no Samaya Link between RIGPA students and Sogyal because the later is utterly unable to be a samaya holder. he is not qualified. without qualification there is no way to build a Samaya link with a student, without this link there is no way to "break the samaya" and since there is no Samaya the fact that survivors of sexual abuses inside Buddhists cults speak up, the fact of speaking up is in no way a Samaya break. period.

If the only "link" you have with a student is a fake "samaya" bond, the moment the student wake up the bond is broken, because it was fake, because it was based on lies, manipulation with the sole intent to coerce the student into alleviating the individualistic pleasure ego approach of the "guru'"

Fuck the guru !

 

Long story short, the CLOUD Act is a sloppy, rights-violating attempt at solving a complicated jurisdiction problem for law enforcement. https://www.accessnow.org/what-happened-with-the-cloud-act-and-what-comes-next/

 

the amount of hate, disinformation, plain old lies, fear mongering against refugees, migrants in most of the US sub-social media networks is staggering : a nation of literal immigrants, responsible for the genocide of an entire population (First Nations) spewing, vomiting on social media all it's hate and total lack of education, blunt ignorance as if the cause of their nothingness was the refugees, refugees that flee their own country thanks to US bombs, drones and perpetual wars.

It's not just some alt-right sites, blogs, radios, podcasts, youtubes channels or sites : it's an invasion of ignorance, stupidity, total lack of education currently intoxicating Minds.com, Gab.ai, Twitter, Facebook, Discord, Tumblr or the obvious 4Chan & subsequent fork, this is everywhere, across channels, across countries.

It sounds like coordinated information warfare of the same vein that was used before,during and after the last US elections only that in this case here it's permanent : their goal is to pivot the narrative & force throat one that serve their doctrine, a doctrine of hate, scarcity, lack of resources, perpetual war that would then justify even more US rogue hegemony, as many have documented in the last 20 years.

We can either watch & document and notice a flawed, toxic world crumble under the remains of nihilism or we can fight back and reclaim Sanity, Science, Education, Information, Democracy.

Time is ticking.

 

Now I understand why the dozens of suspended accounts...

URGENT: Twitter's new rules for 2018 - EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
As you may have heard, Twitter has announced broad-reaching rules and policy changes that will affect all Twitter users and app developers. These changes will be enforced starting Friday, March 23, 2018, but we have just rolled out an update to Twibble to comply with these changes effective immediately.

Furthermore, certain of the limitations already started rolling out to some users one month ago; this likely explains any issues you've experienced with your feeds or Twitter accounts on Twibble.

In order to comply with these changes, we will be rolling out several important changes to Twibble effective immediately.

What is Twitter changing?

You can only add an RSS feed to one Twitter account
Each Twitter account you manage needs to have its own unique RSS feeds.
An RSS feed can post to only one Twitter account
You can no longer schedule an RSS feed to be posted from multiple Twitter accounts.

You can no longer post duplicates
Duplicate "evergreen" content can no longer be shared.

How is Twibble changing to comply with these new rules?

1. Any RSS feed can only be shared with a single Twitter account.
Example: You manage 3 Twitter accounts. You've added RSS feeds A, B, and C to Account 1. You can no longer add A, B, or C to either of Accounts 2 or 3.

2. When adding an RSS feed, you can only publish to a single Twitter account.
Example: You've just added an RSS feed. At the bottom of Twibble's Editor, you've been able to check multiple Twitter accounts (and Facebook Pages) from which you'd like that feed to tweet. Now, you can only select a single Twitter account.

3. Tweet Duplicates will no longer be available.
Example: If you've enabled "Duplicates" for any of your feeds, these will be disabled for all feeds on all accounts. Note, however, that you should be able to RT your own content from other Twitter accounts; you can use Twibble's Auto-Retweet function to accomplish this.

 

Crazy how I have to reFollow obvious people I use to follow since years...@twitter what are you up to again ?
