Dear friends and #Resisters. As you might know, I am a #COVID19 survivor. It took 91 days the first round, and 27 the second to get on my feet. Many of my tweets in the next few days will be about the impact on my town (1/x) #NorthCarolina
Due to the poor planning of @unc to account for the fact that having students return to a community in which cases were already rising, @KevinGuskiewicz and other #UNC personnel are endangering the lives of those living here #ChapelHill #Hillsborough #carrboro (2/n)
This is also endangering the lives of our lowest paid workers at the university. @unc4cola , @workersunionunc , including graduate students, black and brown staff members and of course, the housekeepers. (3/n) Listen to staff and students and community

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿Tragedia de Hillsborough

Hoy se cumple 31 años del suceso ocurrido en el estadio de Hillsborough donde fallecieron 96 personas aplastadas contra las vallas del estadio a causa de una avalancha. La tragedia dio lugar al proceso judicial más largo de la historia legal británica Image
En 1989 jugaban el @LFC y el Nottingham Forest por la Copa Inglesa, pero el partido debió suspenderse por el desborde que produjo la decisión policial de abrir una puerta para facilitar el ingreso de los hinchas reds. La avalancha termino con la vida de 96 hinchas del #Liverpool. ImageImageImageImage
Desde el primer momento la policía buscó culpar a los #hooligans y al comportamiento de los “hinchas borrachos", para encubrir su responsabilidad del operativo de seguridad. Image

Tonight we started the #Hillsborough regular town board meeting with one of my favorite events of the year - presentations of the Innovation, Customer Service, and Endurance Awards to @HillsboroughGov employees. I’ve been fortunate to serve on this committee for 4 years.
A few highlights: utilities staff working 11 mos w/o a director or asst director while rising above/beyond, learning new skills, and working together to “make it work”; TWO diff. lives saved by police officers; Straw for Dogs distributing 100 bales to keep pups warm. A few pics: ImageImageImage
Our staff are truly amazing, and much of their wonderful work goes unacknowledged in any formal or public way. We are truly grateful for it. Glad we could honor some of that work tonight. 🙏👏

It's excruciatingly embarrassing that our press has pumped out so much bilge about the EU that .@EUlondonrep had to have a page on its website dedicated to "A-Z of Euromyths".

As it's Friday, I've picked out my top-ten stupid stories by the British press on the EU #Thread
In at N°10 in the Brit EU-#FakeNews Hit Parade: The S*n claimed the EU wanted to ban BAGPIPES. I'm sure Her Majesty the Queen would have had something to say about that, of whom more anon...

At N°9 in the Brit EU-#FakeNews Hit Parade: The Daily Telegraph, which is now almost as bad as red-tops for fake news when it comes to the EU, claimed the EU wanted to ban that most famous of British icons, the doubled-decker bus.
