#BREAKING: Catholic Priest attempts to defend Statue of #StLouis from further #vandalism and damage.

In the video, you hear an individual make threats against the St Louis Cathedral: “Eventually, we’re taking that too, though.”

@louisducdanjou, Il s'agit d'une situation tragique qui se déroule, que certains Américains souhaitent effacer l'histoire, voire l'histoire de Saint Louis. Priez pour nous et pardonnez à ceux qui ne comprennent pas à quel point c'est offensant.
Vive S. Louis! Vive 🇺🇸. Vive 🇫🇷.
Trying to understand how this helps the #BlackLivesMatter cause, unless older people praying peacefully is a threat to some other narrative?

Food stamps. I needed some new art for the living room, so I used images related to food stamps to make a digital collage and had it printed on canvas; I like how it turned out. Why food stamps? I wanted to reclaim the power of the images. #poverty #dignity #kindness Image
I have a complicated relationship with food stamps (today we call it SNAP). I’m grateful we had food stamps so we could eat when I was young. There’s one painful memory I can’t shake.
Mom sent me to a grocery store in Greenwood in 1984 with a shopping list and a handful of food stamps which she’d torn out of the booklet they come in.

#MMT economists have been saying for decades that a #JobGuarantee is an automatic stabilizer. When the private sector is laying off millions of workers, the Federal government must step in as the employer of last resort.
You take people as they are, where they are, and you do on-the-job paid training at a living wage & benefits for anyone ready, willing, and able to work. During a #pandemic, one of the most important jobs under the #JobGuarantee system is to #StayHome.
There are also millions of jobs that can be done remotely and safely right now (e.g. emergency call centers, wellness checks, testing/tracing/isolating for #COVID19, weatherizing vacant buildings, installing rooftop solar on every school and gov building,..

It is a desperate pitched #battle that #humanity is waging to stop the deadly advance of the #coronavirus.

Since its appearance in #Wuhan #China three months ago, the pandemic has infected one million people and killed 50,000, on a planet inhabited by 6 billion human beings.
Much of the world's population today is #besieged in cities, entrenched in their homes, as an extreme measure to escape the #plague & save lives.

We’re living, without a doubt, a time of tension & psychological crisis, while science, in a fight against the clock, is looking in
medicine for a solution to the challenges of the #pandemic.

The coronavirus is telling the world, in all shades, that #life is more important than #capital, because without life there is no factory.

Salvation is in human #solidarity and not in the perversity of Donald #Trump,

A lot of "trust in the state" oped and articles recently.

Here is Partha Mukhopadhyay (you should read everything by him!) and @MuktaNaik writing "Migrant workers distrust a state that does not take them into account"

indianexpress.com/article/opinio…
The article by Partha et al. appeared 10 days back. Here is Bihar rn:

"Outside the building, in Gangahara, villagers admit no one stays in the centre. “Kya lockdown? Kya corona?”, says a villager, before offering a conspiracy theory. "

indianexpress.com/article/india/…
Again from Indian Express (Edit) : "The high levels of public trust in government in Kerala and Tamil Nadu also make the task of the administration easy. "

I found my 7 year old digging through the house for change. I asked why. He owes Carmen, la elotera who sells corn & fruit outside his school, $1.50. I will remember this moment when folks ask why that school, that neighborhood. 1/6
He knows her NAME and schedule ("cada jueves, a veces los miércoles"). #dignity #respect #streetvendors
He is doing MATH ("elote en el palo $2, en la copa $3). #informaleconomy

I had the good fortune to fly Business Class for a portion of my trip today & then I went back to economy. I generally don't fly business 'cause my account balance scoffs at the idea & I recognise the privilege of flying about anyway. I noticed some things I share in this #Thread
There are some #HumanRights paralells that can be drawn from my experience today. To be on the same page, #HumanRights advocates fight for dignity of everyone, regardless of their social status. That we all should live with basic comfort (not luxury). So. My flight observations:
1/ Space. On business class, you get enough space to lie flat - at least 6ft per person. You've your own space, separate from other passengers. You've drawers for a book & charging spots for a phone. There's a privacy screen that isolates you from your neighbour. #Dignity

Imagine the social segregation of not being able to attend your best friend's 40th Birthday party because it's held in a restaurant that doesn't accept #indue #CashlessDebitCard
Imagine not being able to take your mum out on Mother's Day or dad on Farther's Day for lunch or dinner because local businesses aren't pre-registered for #CashlessDebitCard #indue

1 A photographic look at Pence @VP visit to 2 TX detention centers w 7 #GOP senators. A thread about photo access and visual framing in an age of hate and hysteria. The entourage facing US handiwork without game faces. (screenshot: @Reuters)
2 Let's be mindful of goal: to counteract shocking pix from last 2 urgent @DHSOIG (random) inspection visual reports, the @HispanicCaucus pix from Clint, & #BorderPatrol FB scandal. Paradoxically, aim is to show previous scenes inaccurate, yet still "tough stuff" (& blame Dems).
3 One of goals of @VP trip was to insulate/defend #BorderPatrol from reports about its almost 10k member private racially/sexually toxic FB group. Did address this in context of border visit day before in San Diego in response to q's. Via @joshdawsey @washingtonpost pool report.
