Let's be clear: “the Pakistani people did not do this to Pakistan, we all did. High carbon emitting nations are responsible for what's happening in Pakistan. Unless we end our addiction to fossil fuels, every country in world will remain in the crosshairs of the climate breakdown." -Fiji Prime Minister lashes out at high carbon emitting nations

I'm not mourning the queen AT ALL. She directly benefited from the colonization of Yemen, India, Ireland, Rwanda, Uganda, the Maori, Scotland, Pakistan, the Indigenous of Australia and North and South America etc. A lot of you are real fucking quiet about how they were treated. Her and the rest of the monarchy weren't just some "pop icon" their actions had consequences and the world lives through it. Call me disrespectful all you want, the rest of the royalty can cry with all the money and artifacts they stole.

About to dox myself a little. Please be gentle.
My country, Pakistan, is drowning. A third of Pakistan is at risk of being deluged by massive floods. 1000+ people have been killed, countless others displaced. We have the highest number of glaciers outside the poles, and because of climate change, they’re melting. The knock-on effect is unspeakable—and yet we must speak of it. Tragedy upon tragedy, especially against our poor and most marginalized, and it feels ceaseless.
Pakistan is just one of many countries who will be—who are being—disproportionately affected by climate change. We need international solidarity and we need radical change. Climate change is here, it is happening, it has been happening. The developed world owes developing countries on a moral level; corporations have bloody hands; the neoliberal economic order has stricken us with debts that are choking us; and through it all, we must—cruelly—battle for air against so many other people and causes who deserve equal attention, equal outrage, equal concern. That is not the world we deserve. That is not the world that will save us from climate change. We need to reimagine what a just world will look like. We need to build global, truly global, solidarity. And in the meantime, we need reparations.
If you can, please consider donating to one of these relief efforts.

My country, Pakistan,
is one-thirds underwater and over 30 million people have been displaced, the largest amount since partition. Over 1000 people have died, hundreds of them children. Countless more are left without shelter, food, water, and healthcare. The climate disaster is real and achingly tragic, right in front of my eyes. It's swallowing my country up and I don't know when it will stop. Even when the flooding stops, its consequences won't be over. People have lost their homes, their loved ones, their livelihoods. Pakistan is doing its best which is not even close to enough, so donations are much needed.
Personally, I am not donating to any politically-affiliated flood relief funds, and given the political corruption in this country, I advise others against it. But there are good people, good charities and NGOs doing their best to mitigate the effects. They are on the ground (and in the water) delivering crucial aid to those that need it. It's important to note that at the time of writing, 1 USD = 220 PKR, which buys a lot more than you know, so every dollar really does count. Here is are some trustworthy organizations that I recommend, if you can contribute:
1. Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan
2. Doctors Without Borders Pakistan
3. Pakistan Red Crescent
If you can, please donate whatever possible. If not, please signal boost, and keep Pakistan in your prayers. Thank you ❤️

Everybody cheers to my great grandpa, he has now outlived dear old Lizzie and is OLDER than her mashallah
He’s lived through colonization, the partition, traveled from India to Pakistan, the rise and fall of many governments and has now lived to see 3 British rulers.

reminder of the day that practically a third of pakistan is flooded, afghani people are dying, yemenis are starving and sick, afghanistan/yemen/iraq/syria are all being bombed or are recovering from bombings, myanmar is cutting themselves off to cover up genocides, the chinese government is still killing uyghur muslims, concentration camps in north korea are still up and running, libya is still recovering, and the united nations is failing to take care of the worst humanitarian crisis ( yemen ) so that they could do other, less important, things. 
but, you know, we can just mourn the dead rich white lady who had a hand in so much suffering and colonialism i guess.

Pakistan is drowning, and we need help
Since July of this year, Pakistan has been affected by heavy nonstop monsoons and is yet to stop. It is only getting worse. Rural areas in Balochistan, Sindh, KPK, Punjab and Gilgit Baltistan are the most affected.
As of September 4th, over 1300 people have died and over 500,000 homes have been destroyed along with livestock deaths and ruined infrastructure. The floods have left more than 33 million people affected.
Most of Balochistan is still submerged. Locals are forced to flee and cannot account for their missing relatives until much later. More than 100 districts all across the provinces have been impacted.
Quetta, a major city of Balochistan, has been cut off from the rest of the country as the roads and highways are destroyed.
We get monsoons every year and we are used to them but this is not normal. We are in our 8th monsoon cycle when we usually get 3-4 cycles.
Two of the worst-hit provinces – Balochistan and Sindh – have received 298mm and 689mm rains respectively this year, which is about 400 percent more than the 30-year average. (c)
Along with the floods, there are also landslides and glacier bursts that have claimed lives and made the situation worse.
People from other cities were unable to get in contact with their affected relatives because they did not have electricity. The cloud cover meant no solar power either.
There are more monsoon predictions till September. I don't know how we're going to come back from this.
This is worse than the 2010 floods and the government doesn't give a shit.
This is going to have disastrous impacts on our economy and society but what does it matter? after all, the people are only there to vote, right? :)
It is the volunteers and NGOs helping, it is the public. There was no help when Karachi flooded and people died and they don't care now either.
Here are some links for donations if you can.

Climate change is very real and I am terrified right now.

I really like Ms Marvel. I do. I was a fan of the comics and am a fan of the show
I do want to point out that Ms Marvel should not be used as a completely accurate example of Pakistani history/culture. (It's not inaccurate though)
Kamala and her family are descended from people who had to flee India and come to Pakistan during Partition (Muhajir). The reality is that the vast majority of Pakistanis are indigenous to the land and speak languages other than Urdu (myself included).
I hope none of you are watching Ms Marvel and thinking all South Asians are the same because we were colonised under British rule together. Prior to the British we were NEVER one single country, but rather multiple kingdoms with unique cultures. I understand why Ms Marvel is only showing Kamala's family history and I respect that, but please please if you're a fan of the show do not assume her story is the only story.
Same goes for Bangladeshis.
