Meanwhile in "totally not apartheid at all we swear" Israel, prominent far-right (Kahanist) agitator Bentzi Gopstein was found innocent for assaulting two Left activists (on camera: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aQAsQzIaBE ).
The judge explained: Gopstein could reasonably think the two were Palestinians.
Folks, Facebook specifically trains its abuse staff to protect white men but not black children. https://www.propublica.org/article/facebook-hate-speech-censorship-internal-documents-algorithms
(It's only very slightly less fucked than it looks.)

The fifth and final panel is starting, focused on profits from the Israeli Occupation. The first speaker is Samir Zaqout of the Al-Mezan Center for Human Rights, Gaza, via pre-recorded video. I will again be trying to understand him without simultaneous translation and resume live-tooting afterwards. https://tooot.im/media/ipXQd24CbMnAUuxNT2Q https://tooot.im/media/Pb3GSAxFPU1eVZEF5yg
CAAT brings together various very different groups (including religious groups of many denominations) in resistance of the UK military industries.
Sarah Robinson, anti-militarist activist and researcher of police militarization from the UK, now discussing British resistance to the arms trade in general, and the UK-Israeli arms connection. https://tooot.im/media/rzeqtYEHfc84RlModqk
Adv. Meisa Irshad of the Gun-Free Kitchen Tables project, which highlights the violent effect of guns in civilian spaces within Israel, especially private security guards who take their work gun home. https://tooot.im/media/FPL-mdaFmr1u90r7L0c
Martins: Every two hours, 7 people are murdered in Brazil, over 70% of them Black people from the Favelas.
There are thousands of Favelas in Brazil, increasingly patrolled by increasingly militarized police forces. Every mega event (like the Olympics) accelerates this process. https://tooot.im/media/EhvhIx3-VxnwByZ-uuQ
Gizele Martins from a favela of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil: BR is one of the world's most racist countries, where over 2 million slaves were taken from their homes in Africa. The Black population in Brazil is currently undergoing a process of genocide. After liberation, the Black population was not given the resources needed to survive, therefore creating the Favelas. https://tooot.im/media/qr_FGG-hl2nxJhBKit8
Shahaf Weisbein introducing the Hamushim project (of which she is the cheif coordinator,) which documents and resists Israel's military industries. Israel is a military industry empire, exporting to 130 countries, including human rights abusers like Myanmar, S. Sudan, Central African Republic, and many others.
Hamushim brings together feminist, ecological, anti-militarist, and other forms and angles of resistance to these industries. http://www.hamushim.com
Now: Sarah Shin, a Palestine solidarity activist from Seoul. She'll keep it short because she feels like the situation in South Korea is basically the same as what people from other countries have been recounting.

Gilmer: The Trump-Netanyahu friendship is cause for great worry. Trump fills his cabinet with antisemites, but Netanyahu helps him present himself as pro-Jewish. It highlights that Zionism profits not only from islamophobia but also from antisemitism.
