🧵 I have (another) update on my friends' experience with racial discrimination at @ZalesJewelers. A before, I'm going to use this to #TeachBHR #BizHumanRights on reparations. When the @winlawjournal symposium videos are up, you can see me do this here:…
This is the letter my friends received from @ZalesJewelers regarding the outcome of his complaint of racial discrimination when he was a customer in one of their stores.

(sorry for the weird cropping... I'm old. Not ancient like @scottjshapiro, but still old.)

As a reminder from the earlier 🧵🧵: all businesses, including @zales, have a responsibility to respect all internationally recognized human rights (including the right to non-discrimination on the basis of race).

Two big developments to think about together:

👉 Facebook @OversightBoard upholding Trump suspension

👉 NEW: Biden admin joining #ChristchurchCall to address violent extremist content

#Christchurch @GIFCT_official @techvsterrorism @francediplo_EN @GNET_research

2. The Biden action is a significant turn away from Trump-era policy.

In March 2019, a #WhiteSupremacist terrorist live streamed his massacre of people at two mosques in New Zealand.

These dozens of democracies 👇 joined the call to action.

The Trump administration refused.
3. Both the FB Oversight Board and Biden Christchurch actions are based on #HumanRights law framing the decision.

On one hand: Freedom of expression (and right to receive information).

On other hand: Public safety, equality, non-discrimination, other rights (eg voting rights).

THREAD | (1) Since 2015, a bipartisan consensus has prevailed: members of Congress across the political spectrum support non-nuclear sanctions—including terrorism sanctions—on #Iran.

Six years later, the #Biden admin appears to be on the verge of going against this consensus...
(2) @TzviKahn's memo compiles statements from the #Obama admin expressing support for terrorism sanctions on #Iran.

These quotes highlight the bipartisan support of terrorism and other non-nuclear sanctions—and the importance of maintaining them should the US reenter the #JCPOA:
(3) First up, President Barack Obama 👇

I don't want the research you people do saying "ABA works" implemented.

You set the goals, you create the hypothesis, you design the study, you interpret the results and you conclude that "ABA works".

My community won't help you implement your research.

Do you know what that phrase "evidence-based" has come to stand for among autistic people?

The ABSENCE of evidence of respect for human rights.

Renounce ABA, #INSAR2021. I dare you cowards.

Help us get nonconsensual ABA banned.

#ListenToNonspeakers. Stop silencing them. You're ACTIVELY doing right now.

If you don't start respecting #HumanRights in research, we will up the campaign to #BoycottAutismResearch.

3/35 With the rise of movements defending specific groups a la FDR and LBJ: labor, civil rights, consumer, environmental, and women’s movements, too much power had slipped into the hands of people who made excessive demands (fairness) of government and corporations.

At a time when the entire country is grappling with #COVID-19, mandatory #CoWin registration by @AyushmanNHA will lead to exclusion of citizens from 18-44 years from vaccination who do not use smartphones or do not have an internet connection.
@rssharma3 @MoHFW_INDIA
Not every citizen has digital literacy to be able to register online for vaccination via CoWIN's website or mobile application.
As @prateekwaghre pointed out that as of December, 2020, there are only 58 internet subscribers out of 100 people in India. This would further push people from getting #vaccination.

What if I decided to file a lawsuit (against ??) for the RIGHT to choose to die w/ dignity BECAUSE I am being DENIED the RIGHT to treat my severe intractable pain w/ #pain meds? Hang w/ me for a sec.. #ipp #cpps
I DON'T want to die! I also DON'T want to be forced to live a life of relentless suffering w/o pain meds. Would a #HumanRightsLawsuit help fight for our rights for adequate pain control? #PainManagement
@ACLU @acluohio
How can they legally deny me the right to die w/ dignity (& on my own terms) but they are also trying to FORCE me to LIVE the rest of my life in horrible excruciating #IntractablePain without the Rx #opioids that I needed & have taken for 19 years to function? @ACLU

In Hyde Park on Saturday, Police officers were punched and kicked by right wing #antilockdown protestors

#BorisJohnson said he'd see #BodiesPiledHigh before we #lockdown again

#VoteLeave riled them up for #Brexit

It won't be the Left that storm No 10 😓
2 arrests were made. Police officers were unprepared, ill-equipped with no back-up

When the #FarRight protests #BorisJohnson and #PritiPatel send in officers in shirtsleeves. When some "woke left vegetarians protest", it's riot gear🤔

8 Police Officers were injured. With only 2 arrests made, neither were in Hyde Park.

That means the people you see punching and kicking Police Officers were allowed to walk away freely.

Couldn't we even arrest the people who injured the Police Officers?…

THREAD: Oh what pain our ancestors went through. “The father of modern gynecology”, James Marion Sims used African women forced into slavery for his experiments and surgeries which were performed without anesthesia.
@HistoryVille @AfricaFactsZone @FemnetProg @rhnkorg
He argued that the subjects of his operations weren’t in pain enough to warrant any form of anesthesia/therapeutic treatment. His reasoning was that black people didn’t feel as much pain as whites and therefore didn’t require anesthesia during surgery. #HumanRightsViolations
This caused untold suffering to those women and many died at his hands. Sims didn’t have any specific gynecological training. Drs. in the 19th century weren’t keen on treating women. Female organs were considered derogative and disgusting at that time. #HumanRights

This 2019 article, written a year before the ethnofascist #TPLF launched war on #Ethiopia, exposes the rampant #rape &sexual violence that #women of #Tigray suffered from the rapist TPLF gang. The defeated criminal TPLF "men" are continuing their rape now!…

1. Truth💣Purchased judges? A detective investigation by Grégor Puppinck, lawyer and head of the European Center for Law and Justice, shows that #Gates & #Soros are the largest 'donors' of the European Court of Human Rights @ECHR_CEDH #HumanRights #Confict of Interest Much?
2. "NGOs and judges at the #ECHR, 2009 - 2019". This study revealed that some of the judges sitting at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) are former officials or collaborators of NGOs from the "Soros galaxy"…
3. One year ago, on February 20, 2020, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ) published the report “NGOs and the Judges of the #ECHR”. This report revealed a serious problem of conflicts of interest within the ECHR between some judges and NGOs.…

#Ombudsman #HumanRights #Uzbekistan

By the end of Jan, we received a template response to the appeal written by my father on Dec 7th, 2020, that was sent on Dec 14th, 2020.

Our lawyer filed the appeal to #FeruzaEshmatova on March 29th, 2021, through postal and electronic.
Both of them clearly state gross HR violations regarding my father's case for the 15th year.

On Apr 2nd, 2021, we got an electronic reply that the appeal was sent to Gen Pros Office for further consideration and follow-up notif to both parties signed by @AzimovSaidbek
We've been seeing the same scheme of handling the appeals we submitted, though.

Anyways, we'll keep our eyes on the process again and again with the hope that the case will come into consideration and the #RuleOfLaw and #Justice will prevail, and my father will be free!

Unity is first & foremost responsibility

Have you EVER seen a responsible #racist?

Americans view the unfolding events as internal affairs

They forgot - the US gov aggressively promoted globalization & insisted on being the leader of the "free world"


The world agreed & was rewarded with a shock

B4 #Trump, many "flaws" of the system were not obvious

#TraitorTrump exposed them all

- the system of C&B is dangerously unreliable
- human life is worthless
- unprecedented #corruption
- #DoubleStandards

#NoJusticeNoPeace ➡️

#Biden should've restored #RuleOfLaw b4 talking about unity - he put the cart b4 the horse

#JoeBiden's unity
- turned #racism into a political stance
- let #GOPTraitors off the hook
- reduced #RuleOfLaw to nothing
- "inspired" #CorruptGOP & it's base

#NoJusticeNoPeace ➡️
