The @ActonInstitute @tiktok_us has been partially restored.

TikTok told the @WSJopinion "the account was removed in error and is available again on platform."

But why have two of the videos been removed for violating "community guidelines?" We don't know.

There's no explanation here for why this video was removed."

Do people describing how determination, fearlessness, and never surrendering in the face of intimidation defining what makes them Hong Kongers violate @tiktok_us's "community standards?" 2/
There's no explanation why this video was removed.

Does describing how #JimmyLai has been arrested and persecuted and treated like a terrorist for the "crime" of practicing journalism violate @tiktok_us's "community guidelines?" 3/

1/@JulianHillMP's excellent speech urging ScoMo to #FreeJulianAssange

The assessment of expert team of The UN Special Rapporteur on TORTURE concluded that Assange has been subjected to PROLONGED PSYCHOLOGICAL TORTURE

@Albo must DEMAND UK & US to #FreeAssangeNOW #DropAllCharges
#Assange has been PERSECUTED for exposing WarCrimes & misuse of StatePower. Those who committed WarCrimes have never been prosecuted. What Assange published is NO DIFFERENT IN PRINCIPLE to 1971 PENTAGON PAPERS which exposed truth about Vietnam War & the actions of 2 US Presidents

Starting a thread to aid @JohnsHopkins in transparency on their response to complaints of widespread ableism and the dismissals of 5 disabled counseling students.

The first article that came out features 4 of the 5 disabled students, all dismissed from a small grad program within a 7 month timeframe.

#AcademicAbleism #HigherEd #Baltimore…
Despite extensive fact-checking done by the Newsletter, the School of Education dean’s letter to the editor called our claims unfounded. He requested the article be taken down.

Pretty disappointed with how #TheBusiness portrayed me. I told a much larger story than this, and though it is well summed up with an angst around affordability that doesn’t go away, including rent, petrol, food, essentials (not mentioned) it was so much more than that. #auspol
There was no mention of the #RoyMorgan #unemployment statistic of 8.5%, nor that the ABS figure of 4% is fanciful in not counting anyone as unemployed who works just one hour a week, or has weeks off having worked in the gig economy, or who is sick, injured, etc. #auspol
That employees are working those #jobs created by the need to clean up after the recent #floods. That right now employment going down - is to be expected - as the #casual labour market has soaked up the extra workers needed and under and unemployed people have stepped up. #auspol

#PeoplesHistory | On April 5, 2010 #JulianAssange’s @WikiLeaks published the “Collateral Murder” video, which showed the gunning down of civilians, children and two @Reuters journalists, uncovering war crimes in Iraq.
“It’s very simple. People have a right to know and a right to question and challenge power. That’s a true democracy.” Julian Assange, founder and publisher of #WikiLeaks

#TheTrialOfSegunOnibiyo resumed b4 the courts of the #VileLittleMan today in Kaduna. At the trial today, the prosecution called its 2nd Witness (PW2). He turned out also to be their last witness.

PW2 showed to to tender a record, purportedly of the incitement by @SegunMGOnibiyo. Defence objected that their print out can't be admitted in court unless they can provide source. They didn't. Rather, prosecution claimed Segun made the statement & wanted it admitted as 2ndary ev
Court ruled to admit the evidence but on cross-exam, PW2 cld not show where the record he tendered affected the person or office of the #VileLittleMan. He was also unable to show support the claim that @SegunMGOnibiyo was a source for any such statement.

No pretence, no disguise left. Hong King’s National Security Law is being used as a tool to silence expression, crush dissent. One of HK’s most senior barristers is arrested again, as part of another crackdown, this time on @StandNewsHK where she was formerly a board member.
Nothing to see here. Only Hong Kong’s second most senior politician trampling over a free press, protected under Hong Kong’s Basic Law by the ICCPR, without qualms.

The #NSL - “a coup dressed up in statute.”
The powerful sentencing remarks of 73 year old barrister & former lawmaker, Margaret Ng, in her own mitigation earlier this year.

“The law should give protection to rights, not take them away, especially in Hong Kong, where structural democracy is still absent”.

Today #SB98 was signed into law, ensuring journalists can cover protests and unlawful assemblies in CA. As a lifelong civics nerd, this was my first trip DEEP in a fascinating legislative process. And you know what? It worked. But only thanks to MANY wonderful people. (thread👇)
#SB98 fixed a legal grey area, extending modest existing protections for press under one part of the law (disaster zones) to another (unlawful assemblies). Sounds simple, but it was an involved & time consuming process for well over 100 people. We affirmed #JournalismIsNotACrime.
First and foremost, #SB98 was written and championed by Senator @ilike_mike. We owe him and his legislative director Chris Nielsen a lot of thanks. They were in the trenches for us TWICE before most of us realized this new law was a possibility.

[1/17] 'New Frame' press statement:
Friday 9 July 2021
PR operation to mask repression in eSwatini
[2/17] Magnificent Mndebele and Cebelihle Mbuyisa, the two 'New Frame' journalists who were assaulted and tortured in the Sigodvweni police station in eSwatini on Sunday 4 July, are in Johannesburg.
[3/17] After a full debriefing, it is clear that the torture to which they were subjected was worse than we initially understood when only limited communication was possible via the quick use of a borrowed phone while the two were in hiding.
