I am attending the annual meeting of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (@CND_tweets), the principal policy-making body of the United Nations in drug-related matters. #CND64 is being held in person in Vienna & virtually. In this thread I will share information & reflections🧵⬇️ 1/ Image
I am privileged to be a member of the Australian Civil Society Committee on United Nations Drug Policy.
The Committee provides input & collaborates with the Australian Government; participates in @CND_tweets; and encourages dialogue with Australian civil society.

Russia pulls the US back to the table over New START and then the UK promises to violate the spirit of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).

Note, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty treaty was ripped up by Trump

The US has installed two nuclear strike *capable* launch systems in Romania and Poland. No one disputes the MK 41 Vertical Launching System's nuclear Tomahawk capability. The US promises not to load the missiles but there's no way to verify.….
China needs also to be brought into a new INF treaty as does Israel.

The principles behind the INF treaty are as, if not more, important than New START as there are some in US who believe a limited nuclear strike on Russia is winnable. They are mad and the US needs to say this.

BREAKING: The United Nations decided seconds ago to remove cannabis from Schedule IV of the 1961 Single Convention!!! 🎉
All other five #WHO recommendations were rejected. Particularly the CBD recommendation had only 6 votes in favor (needed 27 to pass). Please don't interpret this as an anti-CBD vote. The recommendation had many issues, as explained in this and in previous articles.
The story has been updated to reflect that all the other WHO cannabis recommendations were rejected.

1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose
3. Elle s’appelait donc Rose, et elle était aussi belle que la reine des fleurs. Comme ne tarderait pas à le démontrer son parcours accidenté de jeune fille, de femme, de mère puis de veuve, Rose appartenait à la version la plus résistante de l’arbuste dont elle porte le nom.

Durante um debate na #CND, principal fórum internacional para a formulação de políticas de drogas em nível global, a pesquisadora brasileira e assessora da @PlataformaPBPD foi interrompida pelo Coordenador-Geral da Polícia Federal, Elvis Aparecido Secco.
Enquanto apresentava dados do Observatório da Intervenção sobre os principais impactos da intervenção federal no Rio de Janeiro, apontando o aumento de 35% no número de pessoas mortas pela polícia, Luciana Zaffalon foi interpelada pelo policial federal, que questionou os dados.
O delegado questionou as conclusões da pesquisadora, afirmando que não se poderia dizer “pessoas” de forma tão genérica considerando que não se tratam de inocentes.
