This is what Azeri trolls posting and liking on internet
The call for genocide is very similar to those before in #Rwanda right before the mass killings started.
The first step towards a genocide is dehumanizing the victims. The language used by Azeri media and activists clearly of such behavior
This is a danger that should not be taken lightly.

#Rwanda: Activists want trans and intersex legal rights
(fin XIXe jusqu'à la fin de la première guerre mondiale où les "possessions" allemandes seront partagées entre le Royaume Uni, la France et la Belgique..)
Il en est de même pour le swahili avec le mot "hela" (même sens, même origine).
En Kirundi (et également en Kinyarwanda, les deux langues étant très proches) l'une des façons de dire "argent" dans le sens de "monnaie" est "ihera" (pluriel : amahera)
Ce mot vient de l'allemand "heller" qui était une pièce de monnaie en vigueur à l'époque de la colonisation allemande en Afrique ...
Criminals should be treated as criminals
And victims treated as victims
Human rights lawyer #Starmer knows that - but cant resist a " tough" image and feeding the racists
In fact, what was proposed, is only about the proceeds of crime, so nothing unusual - but the terrorist stuff was just too tempting
Seemed well....., not utterly terrible
Or did i miss something?
Obvs there were dog-whistle bits for the twats about "terrorism" ( though it was IIRC only standard "proceeds of crime stuff" )
And the framing was predictably negative -

In Rwanda, das zu den 20 ärmsten Ländern der Welt gehört, stehen die Sponsorings schon lange in der Kritik. Sie machen mittlerweile einen erheblichen Teil des Staatsbudget aus, wurden aber nie vom Parlament debattiert oder beschlossen. Es sind Alleingänge Kagames. Finanziell ist der Deal natürlich eine Farce. Anders als #Qatar hat #Rwanda ja gar kein Geld.
Zitat Sascha Düerkop (Twitter):
Offiziell ist die Idee, dass die Sponsorings den Tourismus nach #Rwanda stärken soll. Bislang ist das nicht passiert. Die staatl. Airline überlebt, weil Kagame sie finanziell am Leben hält.

Over the past year and a half, Rwandan troops have conducted military operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo and engaged in direct combat with the Congolese military and armed groups. According to the United Nations and human rights groups Rwandan troops have actively supported the March 23 Movement, M23, a Congolese armed group with longstanding ties to the Rwandan government.
"Braverman denying asylum seekers £3 a week payment for healthy food for children under 3 and pregnant women, found to be unlawful"
Seeing as Cruella's been found to be breaking UK Law AGAIN, when's she going to deport herself to Rwanda? 🤔
If she's conflicted over the rules she enthusiastically enforces on others, I'll buy her a commercial one way ticket to Kigali International Airport myself... 🤷🏾♂️
Sadly I think you missed a step. "#Australia got away with it, so we will as well".
Australia had #Nauru with it's somewhat challenged population able to be guided into violence against our refugees. We had #Manus Island with its locals and police able to bring violence and death to #refugees. We had a #government insisting on referring to illegals.
Britain has #Rwanda as a direct result of what our tories did to refugees.

A 5 star recommendation.
Kenya also has a Safari Train between Nairobi and #Kisumu that comes within ten miles of the equator. There’s a standard-gauge line in the works that would continue past Kisumu to Malaba, which is north of the equator. The long-term vision for that line would cross into #Uganda and circle down into #Rwanda, which would give it a second equatorial crossing.
The department currently has only one person in Rwanda, despite stressing ‘monitoring obligations’ in court.
Ridiculous but now illegal as we all know
"In September 2021, Deutsche Welle (DW), a German news and current affairs media outlet, compiled a list of ‘mysterious deaths and disappearances’ of people critical of Rwanda’s government. The list, dating back from 1996 up to September 2021,"

WE KNEW #RWANDA WAS UNSAFE as we wrote a report about it.
#Rwanda from the UK's own report
"UNHRC noted ‘Opposition candidates had reported harassment, threats, and intimidation. Government authorities had arrested, forcibly disappeared, or threatened political opponents."
"HRW’s World Report 2022, covering 2021 events, added ‘Arbitrary detention, ill-treatment, and torture in official and unofficial detention facilities was commonplace,"
"The USSD 2020 report noted ‘Significant human rights issues included… political prisoners or detainees … and restrictions on political participation"

Tory government demands an end to human rights
It's for your protection
You will be ecstatic to hear the moderate faction of the “Let’s Drown Refugees” party wants to have another referendum! Isn’t this exciting? This referendum would be to leave the European Convention on Human Rights so we finally have enough sovereignty to “stop the small boats”
A Supreme Court defeat over #Braverman's #Rwanda deal would put pressure on #Sunak to leave the European Convention on Human Rights, or at least to put such an ignominious idea in their manifesto for the forthcoming #generalelection
This would appeal to the RW but not, as witnessed on Thursday's #QuestionTime, to their 'ordinary' voter.
#WhoMakesTheNazis - Mark E Smith
"The housing developments, built as part of the multi million-pound deal, were due to be used for migrants and asylum seekers relocated from the UK, as well as local Rwandans.
But in lieu of any deportations having taken place, the accommodation that has been completed is being offered to Rwandans only."
At least they're trying to solve the housing crisis, I suppose. 💀
Tory speechless as NO ONE in Question Time audience raises hand to support #Rwanda plan
And this is the usual mainly Tory voter #BBCQT
Bruce on #QuestionTime "The majority of people in this audience voted Conservative. Is there anybody here who agrees with this plan.... I see. Not one hand has gone up, and we need to recognise that fact."
Sunak & Braverman doubling down on Rwanda - against High Court ruling, ECHR, & basic human decency.
Not just the cruelty, but also the persistence with an obviously doomed & grotesque endeavour. The sheer waste of >£140m deal, £1.3m lawyer fees, £170,000 cost per deportation.
And to add insult, claiming it's the will of the 'British people'.
This British person would like safe passage, work visas, an end to racist rhetoric, and a new gov't.
Rishi #Sunak said he "fundamentally disagrees" with the ruling and the government will seek to challenge the decision and take it to the Supreme Court
Home Secretary Suella Braverman said she is "determined" to stick with the Rwanda policy and will be seeking to appeal today's ruling
UK court rules Rwanda deportation plan unlawful
UK plan to deport asylum seekers to #Rwanda ruled unlawful Court of Appeal - World Socialist Web Site
'The Court of Appeal has declared that the UK government's plan to send asylum seekers to #Rwanda is unlawful.' https://twitter.com/SkyNews/status/1674386704436805635
The Court of Appeal has ruled that the UK Government's Rwanda asylum plan is unlawful
The judges concluded Rwanda is not a safe country to receive asylum seekers from the UK
Total cost(s) of sending a migrant to #Rwanda = £170,000 (yes, you read the numbers of 0s correctly);
Total savings from not having to process a migrant through the UK's immigration system = £103,000
So each #migrant (I refuse the term 'illegal migrant') will be costing us £63,000 to transfer out of the country;
so if you wanted to put a price on cruelty & the inhumanity of Suella Braverman, here's one candidate....
Removing plastics from our lives is…problematic as the modern western society heavily depends upon plastic manufacturing.
For better or worse, plastic is here to stay. I think removing “single use” plastics should be the goal. Some countries like #Rwanda 🇷🇼 have been successful at removing most single use plastics in their country.
Yeah, even Rwanda 🇷🇼 can not remove plastic completely.
