Been searching all MSM for any meaningful analysis on #Turkey #Erdogan initiated recent #Aid call to #KSA #SaudiArabia. Still zilch. With Turkey complying with #US #Iran sanctions, econ crises & being left out cold on #Khashoggi game: Was it a first attempt for reconciliation??!
As some of you may remember I covered the “Real” #Khashoggi #Turkey Case (concoction) for 2 months via the following Pinned Thread (See Screenshot Below).
One of the things experience has taught me in geopolitics: Pay little to no attention to what #MSM making big headline noise about. Instead, go after “things” they cover little (Via page B8 ;-) or do not cover.

People in rich countries don’t often hear stories about organized people improving their communities in the Global South or strong organizations pushing their governments to change policies that hurt poor people. #DevComms #aid #globaldev #NGOs /1
Rather, the aid system is built on an assumption that outside experts have the knowledge, skills, and resources that are lacking in poor countries and communities. /2
Also the aid system is predicated on marketing materials that show needy, desolate, and despondent individuals unable to help themselves, and so, the stories persist, even if they little resemble what is happening in reality, on the ground. /3

#Decolonising #Development must be approached against a dual background of (a) optimistic anticolonial pushbacks like #RhodesMustFall & (b) renewed, frantic & violent attempts to hold on to the 'white man's world' - @o_rutazibwa opens the last #SussexDev lecture of 2017 @IDS_UK
@o_rutazibwa @IDS_UK The 'bathwater' here is #development as a system (ideologies, institutions, practices) which we may need to get rid of; we need to fight the desire to hold on to 'development studies' even if it has given us our professional identities (and paychecks) @o_rutazibwa #SussexDev
@o_rutazibwa @IDS_UK The 'baby' in this story is the ideas, desires and energy - global #justice, #solidarity, #reparations - righting the past and present wrongs that persist 'after' colonialism (the end of which was never quite the rupture we sometimes imagine) - @o_rutazibwa #SussexDev
