#SupremeCourt hears a plea seeking painless procedure for death convicts other than hanging. Image
Petitioner: Death by dignity is a fundamental right. When a man is hanged, his dignity is lost. A convict whose life has to be end, he should not have to suffer the pain of hanging.
Court is taken through the process of hanging.

Government Child Trafficking In All 50 States With The Help Of Bill & Hillary Clinton

The states are taking children,giving them to somebody else,for money that they get from the Federal Government
That means ALL 50 states are involved in Government Subsidized Child Trafficking
It's the LARGEST & most pervasive Child Trafficking ring in the history of the world per money & numbers!"

"Children are seized unnecessarily from their families due to the Federal Aid entitled - "The Adoption & Safe Families Act" - put into law in 1997 by Bill & Hillary Clinton
& it's a law that literally steals money from the Social Security fund & gives this money to states to incentivize them to kidnap babies"

#Thread In the first of a three-part series on death penalty by @thereal_aamirk, we take a closer look at what goes into providing effective representation to death row prisoners. @P39A_nlud #deathpenalty

This series attempts to bring to the fore the strategic processes and personal experiences of those providing legal representation to death row prisoners, besides the tale of a man who spent 6 years on death row before being acquitted. #deathpenalty…

🧵 I’ve been sharing updates but wanted to put together a thread covering the substantive points of the Court of Appeal hearing today (well, yesterday now) involving 24 death row prisoners in #Singapore

#DeathPenalty #StopTheKilling
On 1 August, 24 death row prisoners filed an originating claim against the state, in relation to their right to access to justice. They claimed that the practice of handing out punitive cost orders against lawyers have deterred lawyers from taking on late-stage capital cases.
Due to this fear, they say that they’ve faced difficulties finding lawyers to represent them. Therefore, this practice of imposing cost orders has affected their constitutional rights in relation to access to justice.

It’s 8:51pm and the judges haven’t returned yet. There was just an announcement that it will be about 20 minutes or so longer. 😣

Lots of anxious families right now, none more so than Abdul Rahim’s loved ones, who are waiting to find out if he will be granted a stay.
We’re still waiting here. It’s 9:33pm.

Okay, finally got access. If I understood what happened to me in interrogation correctly, after this morning there are now *more* offences that @justanotherock and I are on the hook for. Just going to sum it up as best I can…
The original 2 alleged offences that @justanotherock and I were questioned for this morning were: (1) when 4 of us hung out outside Changi Prison chatting the night of Kahar was executed, and (2) when we took photos outside of prison a couple of nights before Nagen was hanged. Image
However, ‘cos @justanotherock and I were wearing (different) T-shirts with anti-#deathpenalty slogans today, the police claim that we have committed another offence of “illegal procession”, ‘cos we walked from the market across the street to the police station this morning.

🧵 A thread to share the speech (with some edits to fit Twitter limits) that I gave in Hong Lim Park yesterday at the protest against the #deathpenalty in #Singapore, with further references in [ ].

Thank you all for coming down today, despite the rain and the damp and the humidity.

By showing up, you’ve demonstrated your opposition to state violence in all our names.
By showing up, you’re also showing the many family members and loved ones of people on death row that there are people who stand with them.

This morning I worried that few people would show, especially because it rained earlier. When the government repeatedly says there’s overwhelming support for the #deathpenalty, it can make you feel very alone and on the fringe. Thank you to every single person who came today.
Members of Abdul Kahar's family attended the protest today. They, too, said that the turn-out was larger than they'd expected. Kahar's younger brother, Abdul Mutalib, told me, "It is over for my brother. Now we fight for everyone else."
When @Kokilaparvathi read out the names of people on death row (based on research done by @tjc_singapore), Mutalib expressed shock at how long the list was.

"There are 62 names," I told him.

His eyes widened. "62... [They're] not numbers. They're people."

As an anti-#deathpenalty activist and someone supporting Nagen’s family at this time, I’d like to respond to this horrific statement from #Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs. 👇🏼
Firstly: while the MHA statement rehashes what the courts said about Nagen’s actions being “the working of a criminal mind”, what *isn’t* disputed is that Nagen’s IQ is only 69, he has borderline intellectual functioning, ADHD, and his executive functioning skills are impaired.
Under international standards, these conditions should in and of themselves be enough for Nagen to be spared #deathpenalty. See this report from 2000 by the then-UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions:… This is not new! Image

Since Zelda went into hiding over violent protests that terrorized hospitals & Liberal campaign stops, participants scurried to find new places to organize & a 🇨🇦 companion to Parler has emerged

This #thread is RE partisan #violence & how it's paid for
2/24 🧵#CDNpoli #Violence #Elxn44

There's been much ado trying to insulate Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole from the vulgar & violent uprising surrounding right-wing causes during the election

But on #Aug23 the CPC posted propaganda that specifically invoked violence as a motto
3/24 🧵#CDNpoli #Violence #Elxn44

The full Conservative ad shows a boxer punching forward & that was uncivilized enough

For those who use dark theme, xray, or colour inversion display (for style or visual disability), the violence was quite amplified
