We have reached a historic settlement with the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office today, officially ending OPDA’s years-long use of fake subpoenas and intimidation to coerce and jail survivors & witnesses of harm. #NOLA #Louisiana
In 2017, we joined @ACLU, @ACLUofLouisiana, @VenableLLP, SilenceIsViolence, and the plaintiffs to file a lawsuit against then-DA Cannizzaro for fabricating subpoenas to force folks into out-of-court interrogations. DA Cannizzaro's office was breaking the law in #Louisiana.
OPDA even went as far as putting its official seal on them to try and trick people into thinking they were real. As a result, #Louisiana jailed people who weren’t accused of a crime for days, weeks, and even months.

Thread 🧵 will contain #Redistricting Committee info, contacts, links & any schedules I find.

We must actively participate in Democracy if we want it to survive the pressures from those who teeter on the fringe of fascism.

Speak! Don't allow them to gerrymander your voice away!

(1/21) On November 6, 1965, the U.S. agreed with Cuba to airlift Cubans to the United States.

In the next eight years, around 300,000 Cubans took advantage of this program and left for the country that had played a central role in its domestic politics for a long time. 🧵
🌎

(2/21) On that very same day, U.S. President Lyndon Johnson's science advisory committee sent him a report entitled Restoring the Quality of Our Environment. 

Summarized in one line: a warning that burning fossil fuels will change the climate.

🌎

(3/21) Although the report correctly warned about the increase of carbon dioxide, it noted that it would take a few more years before climate models could reasonably project future global surface temperature changes.

🔥 Re-upping this thread, now that it’s complete. It is a practical overview of the data on the following topics:
🔸#DeltaVariant in kids (+surge of RSV pneumonia)
🔸#LongCovid in fully vaccinated persons
🔸Masks protect the vaccinated, too
🔸#COVIDisAirborne
San Francisco indoor mask mandate 👀⤵️
#Tennessee should absolutely require masks in schools given what we know about #DeltaVariant in children. Vaccinations for those who are eligible should also be a requirement

🧵/This is a thread that covers a few related topics
🔸#DeltaVariant in kids (+RSV)
🔸#LongCovid in fully vaccinated persons (+”brain fog”)
🔸#COVIDisAirborne
2/ The #DeltaVariant wave is different in kids: they're getting sicker, faster. Looking at the trends in hospitalizations (yellow) and new admissions (cyan) 👀⤵️ Note how quickly both lines are rising, and how the curve differs from any other point since we started tracking this
3/ As of yesterday, more children were in the hospital with #COVID19 than at any point since February 25, 2021 (yellow); more children were admitted with COVID-19 than at any point since February 12, 2021 (cyan)

GOP Rep. Clay Higgins of #Louisiana says he has Covid for the SECOND time. Referring to the disease as the "biological attack weaponized virus" from China, he said on FB that the latest infection is "far more challenging" than his bout w/COVID in Jan 2020. nbcnews.com/politics/polit… Image
This point bears repeating. People infected with the #DeltaVariant had about 1,000 times more copies of the virus in their respiratory tracts than those infected with the original strain of the coronavirus. npr.org/sections/goats…
It's doubtful if he had COVID in January 2020... Image

Expect indoor mask mandates nationwide in the upcoming weeks for BOTH vaccinated and unvaccinated people as the #DeltaVariant continues to run rampant across the country.
I told him as an expert in the field I strongly recommend wearing a mask, but he just kept bringing up his "rights"
In some states, masks are being HIGHLY recommended rather than mandated.

Gov. John Bel Edwards sounds the alarm that #Louisiana has the highest growth rate of COVID cases in the U.S. as the #DeltaVariant continues to hospitalize unvaccinated people.
Amid uncontrolled #DeltaVariant cases and hospitalizations, @LaDeptHealth recommends masking indoors, for both vaccinated AND unvaccinated people.
Louisiana has the highest rate of new COVID-19 cases per capita in the nation. Ochsner Health said it’s seeing a 423 percent increase in COVID patients from one month ago wwltv.com/article/news/h…

Just so we’re all on the same page: the #COVID19 surge in #Missouri will last at least another week…and the situation will deteriorate quickly in #Florida, #Louisiana, and #Oklahoma over the next week or so

Get #vaccinated and #WearAMask
I say this because there are large pockets where #COVID19 case rates have more than doubled in the last 7 days. In addition, there are surrounding areas (“halos”) where the test positivity is rising quickly. It’s behaving like a ripple effect 👀⤵️

If you think #Missouri is struggling with the surge in #COVID19 hospitalizations, just wait until you see what happens in #Louisiana and #Oklahoma in a few weeks
