🧵1/2 I am a long-time political activist and protestor, as are many of my friends. I'm accomplished at letter-writing campaigns targeting govt officials. Today my protestor friends and I agree that the so-called #FreedomConvoy created a turning of the tide of illegal protests.
2/2 We no longer support illegal protests and blockades of any public infrastructure highways, bridges, ports, railways, etc. We are changing our strategy and tactics to gain public support and govt attention. We are developing more effective means of sharing our messages.
Clear transportation corridors are required to keep the supply chains operating. Clear roadways are required for emergency servicing via firetrucks and ambulance runs to hospitals. Sit-ins on highways are dangerous for sit-ins & can trigger violent responses from motorists.

We're in a Climate & Ecological Crisis, Sixth Mass Extinction, a threat to us all. Fossil fuels, though they account for over 80% of carbon emissions produced by humans, continue to be widely used. That's massively destabilising our biosphere, yet our Parliament says/does nothing Image

Die #LetzteGeneration aus dem Umfeld von #ExtinctionRebellion kündigt an, "Öl- und Gas-Pipelines abzudrehen".
Seufz. /MS
Mal völlig von der Frage abgesehen, ob solche direkten Aktionen von Einzelpersonen oder Kleinstgruppen angemessen sind oder nicht, stellt schon die Ankündigung heraus: die deutsche Infrastruktur - auch die "kritische" - ist so miserabel geschützt, dass es wehtut. /MS
Jede Leitung für Gas, Wasser, Wärme oder alles mögliche ist mit Absperrschiebern ausgestattet - und die Schilder, die anzeigen was was ist, stehen direkt daneben. /MS…

“The jury has reached a verdict. And it is damning.” Powerful, prophetic words from UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on the release of the latest #IPCCReport. See thread below for excerpts and video of his 5 minute Word to the World about the #ClimateEmergency. 🧵
“This report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is a litany of broken climate promises. It is a file of shame, cataloguing the empty pledges that put us firmly on track towards an unlivable world.”
"Climate activists are sometimes depicted as dangerous radicals. But the truly dangerous radicals are the countries that are increasing the production of fossil fuels," Guterres continued. "Investing in new fossil fuels infrastructure is moral and economic madness."

Today is a good day. Many #civilresistance groups getting their campaigns started or ramping up around the world today - and they're no joke ;)
Check this out!! 10 countries listed below!
Is yours there?
New "Last Renovation" group from France had their very first motorway blockade today... in a blizzard!!
They demand the Gov't do emergency insulation of all of France leaky homes.
Go and give love to @derniere_renov to welcome them to the scene!
New campaign @JustStop_Oil shut down 10 oil terminals today, with help from @XRebellionUK.
They demand the Gov't stop all new fossil fuel exploration & production projects.
They're going to cause proper chaos in the next couple of weeks. I'm so excited.

Putins Krieg wird durch unsere fossilen Importe bezahlt!

XR Ukraine ruft alle deshalb dazu auf russische fossile Firmen zu blockieren und den Druck für 100% erneuerbare Energien hochzutreiben.
Die gigantischen Geldströme in Putins Kriegskasse müssen JETZT enden. XR Düsseldorf hat losgelegt und den Energiekonzern Uniper blockiert, der trotz Putins Verbrechen das Kraftwerk Datteln IV mit russ. Blutkohle befeuert und an Gaslieferungen aus Russland fest hält.


1/3 der russischen Staatseinnahmen kommt von fossilen Exporten, davon ein gigantischer Batzen aus Deutschland. Wir müssen die tödliche Abhängigkeit von Despoten und Diktatoren durch den Import von Öl, Kohle und Gas endlich beenden!

This week #ExtinctionRebellion Clare and @FutureproofC vigilantly attempted a Citizen’s Arrest on Minister Eamon Ryan for charges of ecocide and crimes against humanity.
The following crimes are being perpetrated under @EamonRyan’s watch as Minister for Environment, Climate and Communication:

1. Granting licences for mining and prospecting, and approving new legislation giving increased rights to mining companies.

2. Allowing #AughinishAluminia to continue threatening life with toxic waste by not insisting on proper waste management.

3. Permitting the development of an excessive number of energy-depleting #DataCentres.

The Govt's draconian Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill is authoritarian, antidemocratic, anti-free speech, & anti-British.

It is an insult to all the brave people who gave their lives in WWII to protect our freedoms.

It MUST be resisted.

#KillTheBill #PoliceBill
Former Director of Policy for PM David Cameron, Camilla Cavendish, today stated that Britain is "sleepwalking into a police state."

She said that MPs claiming facemasks "is an imposition on civil liberties, have waved through these provisions" effectively criminalising protest.
Since the 296 page #PoliceBill passed through the House of Commons, Priti Patel has brought in an ADDITIONAL 18 pages at the last second (effectively an additional Bill) which has had ZERO scrutiny from MPs, & which bring in further draconian provisions.

'Social work & the #COVID19 pandemic: International insights' - book review by Natalia Phillips.

2020 brought a series of major international crises in the form of climate emergency, human rights violations, & the global coronavirus pandemic.

These interlinked global emergencies accentuate the division & alienation of the most disadvantaged in society caused by modern capitalism.

Governments’ biopolitics surrounding #COVID19 revolves around the prioritisation of “economy” & neglect of Health & Social Care services.
Structural racism prevails & those who require state support are the ones left helpless & suffering the most in these unprecedented times.

'Social Work and the Covid-19 Pandemic' is a collection of collaborative work of many academics, social work practitioners & activists.

Wenn du als Pressesprecher von #ExtinctionRebellion die Shoa relativierst und dann nicht so recht damit klar kommst, wenn auch zwei Jahre später noch darüber gesprochen wird, weil weder du noch XR daraus Konsequenzen gezogen hat, dann bist du Tino Pfaff.

Hey @kkklawitter wie kommt man darauf, es als "offenes Mindset" zu bezeichnen, sich mit der auf der ökorassistischen Tiefenökologie basierenden, irrationalen Kunstrasenbewegung #ExtinctionRebellion zu solidarisieren, die zudem für Atomkraft lobbyiert?
Die Kritik ist übrigens bis auf das Impressum, das XR DE mittlerweile geändert hat, noch vollständig aktuell. #ExtinctionRebellion wirbt für Querfront, der deutsche Pressesprecher, deutsche Ortsgruppen und Gründer der "Bewegung" verharmlosen die Shoa (ohne Konsequenzen).
Der Pressesprecher von XR UK verbreitet rassistische, antisemitische und verschwörungsideologische Thesen. In Ortsgruppen existieren laut Aussteiger:innen sektenartige Strukturen im Umgang mit Kritik (Rechtfertigungstribunale). Antisemitismus im XR Forum.

BREAKING: Judge finds 3 guilty, despite their nonviolent act against the crime of dangerous and damaging denial and delay coming out of the "think-tanks" and lobbyists at 55 Tufton Street in a #ClimateCrisis that is happening now.

#DenialOnTrial #TellTheTruth #ClimateJustice
Guilty of criminal damage, they all received 6 month conditional discharge and were ordered to pay reduced court and compensation costs totalling of £200. Unusual as this is far less than the claimed damage caused.

The magistrates praised them for their “openness and honesty”.
