New figures released today by @debtjustice show that African governments owe Western private lenders three times more debt than they owe China.

And interest rates on private loans are double those on Chinese loans.

No one is Indigenous until the settler colonizer arrives. I’ve been thinking about this statement a lot.

RT @barkhad
“No country can become an economic powerhouse if the LFPR is 40%. The bulk of India’s working age population is either not working or not looking for work. And despite educating more girls, the LFPR of women is an abysmal 9.4%. Besides, the current unemployment rate is 7.1%”.

Isn't it kind of obvious that private jets - among the worst carbon emitters there are - have to be either banned or taxed around @10,000% per flight? Surprised that no one at Davos thought of this, how come?

Tackling climate change requires closing many oil and gas fields. Who owns these stranded assets? In @NatureClimate we trace $1.4 trillion in losses at the field to their ultimate owners and show that mainly private persons in rich countries stand to lose. nature.com/articles/s41558-022

Politicians and the media who have played down, denied and buried the reality of climate change, for fear the super rich will have to pay to fix it, must be held accountable as this year's disasters reveal the reality we are all facing

65-year-old Mr. Jain was beaten and killed “on suspicion of being a Muslim.” To be Muslim in India is now enough of a justification to be beaten to death. We are told he dint protest enough and prove that he wasn’t one. Tomorrow they will charge his dead body with negligence.
