Our #DefendingDemocracy conference is kicking off✊🏽✊🏾✊🏼

@klinaj explains why her ecological activism brought her to help set up @MakeVotesMatter after the 2015 election which highlighted like never before how dramatically unfair our voting system & how much it blocks change⤵️
Most countries using the First Past the Post voting system are former British colonies. This is one of the worst colonial exports which continues with a huge impact to this day

🇳🇿Hope can be found in how New Zealand changed its voting system from FPTP to PR...⤵️
So much evidence that countries with PR perform better on education, child poverty, environmental policies, equality & so much more.

Women leaders have performed better in dealing with the #covid19 pandemic, but these are countries with PR - who are more likely to elect women!⤵️

I asked @KembaWalden, who is an expert in election security legal issues, about some of the projects she's championing at @Microsoft - read on below #ShareTheMicInCyber #Election2020 👇
@KembaWalden created and lead The Law of Election Security, a roundtable of cyber and elections lawyers from the private sector, and state and federal governments to think creatively on how to improve laws around elections - most recently focused on legislating digital forgeries.
Right now, @KembaWalden is supporting Microsoft’s efforts in campaign security, election integrity, and disinformation defense. Recently, we expanded our offering for #AccountGuard.….

This is VERY serious & unacceptable:

UK PM withholding Intelligence Committee report on security threat of Russian interference in upcoming (12 Dec!) general election.

What is Boris Johnson hiding?

#DefendingDemocracy #GE2019 #UKPolitics #HybridWar…
Chair Intelligence & Security Committee:

PM Johnson's press office* come up with "whopping lies" on why report can’t be published now.

*Linked to #Cummings, Johnson's chief adviser, who is now facing questions over his activities in... #Russia.

UK PM blocks report on Russian election interference — until *after* the election ?!

What is Boris Johnson hiding ??

Yet *another* UK election that's not free & fair.

Unless it leaks...

Voters deserve to know the truth!

Delighted to attend #NATOengages, a high-level civil society event hosted by @AtlanticCouncil @gmfus @MunSecConf & @WIISBrussels at new @NATO Headquarters, happening simultaneously with the official #NATOsummit.

Watch LIVE:

Germany Defence Minister @vdleyen:

"Trump is a business man. He will understand that spending is not just about input, but also about output. You can spend 2% on your national defence budget, but not do anything for NATO. Focus must be on capabilities."

#NATOengages #NATOsummit
"A more peaceful, more resilient, more democratic world is good for @Canada.

We deeply believe in @NATO's values:

Peace, security & #DefendingDemocracy are as relevant today as ever." -

PM @JustinTrudeau at #NATOengages #NATOsummit
