My favorite part abt this? @CoreCivic & @GEOGroup’s statements; they’re clearly struggling 2 realize that all the facts & info that formed the basis 4 this decision were taken directly from the cos’ own SEC filings, depositions, & internal emails lawyers obtained thru discovery
Also, y’all r still using basically the same statements u provided n response 2 CalSTRS’ divestment. At least put a little effort in? I mean, my god, if I can sit thru ur CEOs droning on & on n quarterly shareholder 📞 at least have the decency 2 update ur sad excuse 4 a comeback

But now for the Negative Nancy part: the #Vedanta ruling is quite narrow and case-specific, and more importantly, the access to justice issues it highlights are only relevant if claimants pass the 'good, arguable case' test.
The SC did not intervene in the factual assessment of the High Court and the Court of Appeal that there was a legitimate case to be tried against Vedanta, and assumed that there was.
That was different in Okpabi v. Shell and AAA v. Unilever, where the courts did not find an arguable case, as the claimants could not demonstrate sufficiently that the parent companies were under a duty of care.

1/? THREAD: What can the world learn from Brazil’s struggle to #endslavery?

This week I’m visiting Brazil to consider that question.

Combining mobile inspection teams, social action & big data, Brazil’s efforts are amongst the most sophisticated in the world.
2/ >50000 modern slaves have been rescued by the Brazilian state since 1995.
On behalf of @UNUCPR @Delta87org & @FinComSlavery I'll meet with @undpbrazil @ilo @MPT_PGT @reporterb @experian & more, focusing on policy in agriculture & finance.

Learn more about slavery in Brazil & government efforts here: delta87.org/dashboards/bra…
