#cologne #movies #politics

The incidence in Cologne has declined; its again at 59 right now. Beginning today, the state will no longer fund Corona-Tests for people who could get vaccinated instead.

19 of #Facebook’s top 20 pages for #American #Christians are run by #EasternEuropean #troll farms overseas, internal documents leaked to #MIT Technology Review reveal. The data shows the vast spread of Facebook misinformation is largely powered by coordinated efforts among foreign professionals working together to spread provocative content in the U.S.


These groups, based largely in #Kosovo and #Macedonia, have been particularly successful when it comes to targeting American Christians. Though they split their efforts among multiple pages, they are mostly operated by the same groups. Collectively, their Christian Facebook pages reach about 75 million users a month — an audience 20 times the size of the next largest Christian Facebook page.

The #Communist Party of #Austria has just become the strongest party in #Graz, Austria's 2nd biggest city, paving the way for a KPÖ-Greens-SD coalition


This is a welcoming change in the otherwise extreme right atmosphere of Austria.

I just hope to see similar changes in #Sweden next year. I a, terrified by the amount of propaganda and backing the Nazi SD and the Christian Nazi KD are getting.
