Doctors Without Borders ("MSF") and SOS Mediterranée cease saving lives on Mediterranean with ship Aquarius after being stripped of Panama flagging in September, so being stuck in Marseilles, reports SR.
They saved >30000 lives since 2016, while >2100 migrants died from drowning there so far in 2018.
They were last volunteer orgs performing the life-saving States are required to do but don't.
Due to recent State practices commercial ships now avoid areas where refugees may be drowning because they would otherwise be obligated to save them.
Meanwhile, EU pays Libya to capture refugees using their universal human right to travel and to seek asylum, causing a huge surge in modern slavery.
Also Turkey was paid by EU to stop people using their universal human rights and many of those have then been used for illegal population transfer to militarily occupied areas.
Easily the cleverest unboxing video ever. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnnmA2klBN8
Can we get some more of this on #mastodon? Social media doesn't feel the same without the unprompted insults.

Unfortunately, i had to cancel my attendance for the @UBports @telegram #hackathon last minute. These past weeks have been crazy busy for me, so i need this weekend to catch up on some of my overdue TODOs...
But here's the good news: The event is still on, and since i'm not attending, there's now a free seat in the room! So if you're nearby, come by the MetaLab to hack on the new #telegram app and meet lots of great people from #UBports and #UbuntuTouch!
Ubuntu Touch OTA-5 was just released! https://ubports.com/blog/ubports-blog-1/post/ubuntu-touch-ota-5-174 #UbuntuTouch #Ubuntu #UBports
I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account.
It's the Admin's instance, so I fully support their choice to eliminate a source of frustration, but something to consider: a person who is doing nothing wrong can be run off one instance by a mob from another instance. That seems ... not cool. 1/x
