1/3 This week I attended the opening of the #Mandela centenary exhibition.

In a short speech, Lord Hain thanked one of the sponsors, Moti Group, twice.

According to @mailandguardian Lord Hain is
employed by them "in part to improve their poor reputation"…
2/3 Moti Group is a mining & property
company that's been subject to some controversy. It allegedly has links to
Zimbabwean officials implicated in human rights violations & in 2017,
Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for the company's chair…
3/5 Journalist @simonallison writes:

"There is no suggestion that the royals were aware of or intended to
endorse the Moti Group’s controversial business practises; or the group’s links
to senior Zimbabwean officials that have been implicated in serious human
rights violations."

Dear @tito_mboweni, if you want debate on Nationalisation of Mines, Land and natural resources, please say so. Your tweet is populist and misleading. You know this, why do you do this? In a few tweets, I will back up my bold statement. THREAD BELOW.
1. You know that one of the first pieces of legislation #Mandela signed was nationalisation of mines. You know that the State owns ALL mines in South Africa. Mining companies get prospecting and mining licenses from @DMR_SA. Please explain what conditions DMR has put in place?
2. If @DMR_SA has the power and authority to issue mining licenses, what mechanisms are in place to ensure that there is adequate provision for people who live in mining communities to have meaningful stake and adequate protection from capricious companies, international & local?

1. Je vais faire un mini-#thread pour expliquer un truc sur la Notion de racisé et le passage d’un concept dit scientifique à un concept normatif i.e. instituer un privilège juridique pour compenser une inégalité prétendue, qui serait entretenue par l’Etat. (Racisme d’Etat)
2. Au début, on nous dit que la notion de racisé, a été validée « scientifiquement » par des experts sociologues. [Je rappelle qu’il y avait des économistes experts qui expliquaient scientifiquement la plus grande efficience de la planification sur le Marché]
3. Ensuite, la notion de racisé n’est pas le fait de la société civile mais de l’Etat avec l’existence d’un racisme d’Etat. Là, les juristes demandent quelles sont les normes racistes dans l’ordre juridique français [Comme celles qui existaient au Texas ou Afrique du Sud]
