A week of @ExtinctionR protests begins today across the UK - in Leeds, Cardiff, Glasgow, London and here in Bristol, where they will occupy a city centre bridge. The aim to get Govt to change #climate policy, but police are concerned about local short term effects. More @GMB
Police are expecting around 1000 @ExtinctionR protestors in #Bristol, with a large number already in the city. They promise a non-violent campaign to change climate policy, starting this morning with a mindfulness gathering in early morning sunshine.
Protestors urging the government to #actnow on #ClimateChange.

#Burkas are like wearing a crusifix&should b defended,said Scots leader liberal+lesbian,irresponsibly ignoring that a crusifix is a symbol of #Christianity,which holds t western civilisation,while #nijab is a symbol of oppression enforced recently in #Islam by the #Saudi #Wahhabi
#Liberals accusing #Iranian govt of"oppressing women" who must wear a lose scarf,but do not protest against the #Saudi #Wahhabi reactionary dogma,while it's creeping as political #Islam to combat western #civilisation at the end.If it's sounds like fiction,think Saudi investments
Serious problem wth "western civilisation"mental health.Giving up easily to full veil wearing wthout asking what the cover symbolises,wthout questioning why it came from archaic #Saudi #Wahhabi #Sharia #Regime by force,is👉rejection of progressive western values.Period

I'm still trying to process the bizarre scenes at Bristol Magistrates Court today.
A directions hearing was held for the controversial case of the police officer who Tasered Ras @Justice4Judah but it didn't happen...

#Bristol @CleoDanceBaton @pgmhart
Everyone attended what I imagine the prosecution, defence & judge via video link from Westminster assumes would be a formal yet cordial chat about admission of evidence in the case where a police officer is charged with assault.
It was thought that the defence would seek a ruling restricting the evidence admissible in this case.
But he didn’t. Instead, with press: (me from @BristolLive @stevenmorris20 @clairehayhurst @PollitaMarch) he said he wanted to ask if some evidence could be heard ‘in camera’

#thread Bit shocked by a conversation while I was having hair cut. Chap next to me was leaving teaching to join police. 1/
He taught reception and early years mainly, up to year 4 I think. 2/
He was leaving first because he felt he now actually spent a too little of his time actually teaching and too much hoop-jumping. 3/
