SR and @AufstandLastGen occupied Hamburg Uni demanding the Uni take a position on the criminal plans of the German gov. to expand new oil & gas. Uni Hamburg sent in police on day 4 after an art action.

Result - #PoliceBrutality on peaceful protestors 1/
Over 40 officers arrived in full gear and dragged peaceful protestors out using pain holds and a special crane to lift down the 4 occupying the building roof. One police officer began crying after having seen the pain inflicted upon Melli, 26, from Letzte Generation. 2/
Interrupting normal classes + holding talks on the role of the Uni in society as a cultural and community meeting point and centre of knowledge & research, they highlighted the historically significant position Universities have taken in civil resistance against injustice. 3/

"Il corteo funebre di #ShireenAbuAkleh, giornalista di @AlJazeera , uccisa mercoledì, è stato segnato da scontri con le forze di polizia israeliane a Gerusalemme, che hanno usato granate assordanti sulla folla a #SheikhJarrah. ⬇2
Centinaia di persone si sono radunate fuori dall'ospedale dove è iniziata la processione, molte delle quali sventolano bandiere palestinesi e intonavano quelle che la polizia ha definito “cori di incitamento nazionalistico”. ⬇3

I appreciate & take the concerns of @NBPactueel very seriously. I have investigated & provided training & advice for police & military operations in contexts of war & violence for 20+ years & personally experienced their often very difficult & dangerous working environment. (1/7)
Throughout my career, I have also seen more than enough to be able to immediately distinguish allegations of #PoliceBrutality that require careful contextualization from cases that are plainly obvious & primarily require immediate correction. (2/7)
My two statements of 3 January 2022 may be harsh, but they are neither biased nor premature, but respond to well-documented facts that are clearly incompatible with international standards irrespective of any contextual factors & that require urgent & decisive remedy. (3/7)

Our report on #policebrutality shows that the same violent patterns are deployed in different European countries to allow police forces to continue brutalising racialised communities; #structuralracism can no longer be ignored in Europe.
The #Covid19 measures have also allowed police and law enforcement to further brutalise racialised communities. We all remember the #MichelZecler case in France:⤵️
The many systemic human rights violations perpetrated against refugees and migrants in Europe with complete disregard towards the protection of their fundamental rights also clearly demonstrates how institutions in Europe target racialized communities.

@VP admitting wars have been over oil,
Soon they'll be over water...

Saying it so casually..
Like America didn't destroy half the world with their genocidal oil wars,

The "news" are silent
#Iraq #Libya #Syria #China
No comment needed.
BBC casually admitting that they've been lying for 10 yrs

We are a monetarily sovereign nation & cannot go bankrupt.

-Which was never an economic need, it was/is an ideology
Has killed at least 150,000 souls in this very rich country,

Today Teal Cedar went back to court in Nanaimo to ask for their injunction against #FairyCreek forest defenders to be extended.

The logging company's lawyer Dean Dalke is really in a tizzy over the tactical abilities of the protesters... (thread)…
In court, the logging company's lawyer said of the land defenders, 'their resistance to being arrested is just shocking!' (This generated some amusement)

Leaving aside what "resistance" means for now, let's just review what's been going on with the RCMP at #FairyCreek...
Recall: the RCMP not only used this injunction to remove forest defenders from the #FairyCreek area, they exceeded their powers, & barred media from witnessing their actions, & more. In August, Judge Thompson (same judge as today) found that:… #bcpoli Image

THREAD. This 17-year-old was removed from a tripod at Ada’itsx/#FairyCreek on Aug 24. An RCMP officer cut the youth’s shirt off, covered his face with a gloved hand & held his head back at an uncomfortable angle, before dropping him down with a rope around his lower ribs. #bcpoli

THREAD - Report from #FairyCreekBlockade that you won't hear in the BC mainstream media, on the imminent cutting of these ancient trees, incl 1000 year old giants.

The RCMP are acting as heavies for the logging company Teal Jones which has been posting... record profits. #bcpoli
.."This tree is in the next block to be logged at #FairyCreek starting tmrw. It's just outside the watershed. Police cleared the route to it by smashing in the windows of a van so they could drag a woman who had been sleeping in the van out, then crushed her van with a bulldozer"

@jjhorgan @mikefarnworthbc .."I am absolutely gutted this morning. My arrest and the arrests I witnessed on Tuesday were some of the most brutal I have seen or experienced in over 30 years of civil disobedience. I have been tuned up by the cops before but, never that bad simply for saying no.." #FairyCreek

The #1 way cops are equipped to repress protest movements and perform no-knock raids on private homes is the BILLIONS of $ in military weaponry from the federal govt.

This is the militarization of the police, and it’s made an already violent institution even more dangerous.

The origins of the 1033 program lie in the “forever wars” on drugs, crime, and terror.

In 1989, Congress gave the Pentagon temporary authority to give military equipment to local law enforcement.

Anything was OK as long as it was deemed suitable “in counter-drug activities.”
In 1996, Congress made the Pentagon’s temporary authority to give weapons of war to local law enforcement agencies permanent and expanded its purview to “counterterrorism”, creating 1033 as we know it.

Since, 10,000 jurisdictions have received $7 billion-plus in equipment.

“State officials will continue to violate people’s rights with impunity”

Ron Keine was convicted and sentenced to death for kidnapping and murder in 1974

He was exonerated in 1976, 9 days before his execution

#EndQualifiedImmunity 🧵
Misconduct in Ron Keine’s case was “so egregious” the prosecutor lost his license and several officers were fired - @innocence

Yet Ron’s lawsuit was dismissed — because of qualified immunity

And Ron’s case isn’t rare

Qualified immunity enables police brutality and corruption
Qualified immunity is a judicial doctrine from the 1960s that allows public officials, like cops, to act with impunity — even when they break the law

And as we know, the very people empowered to uphold the law break it every day — and laugh about it…

We need change NOW. How is it that at no point during the encounters with this poor woman NO ONE seemed to notice she had mental deficits? A visit from APS would be more appropriate. This woman was terrorized by the police, not *policed*. #PoliceBrutality…
This is indefensible.

Miss Garner is 73.
She has dementia & aphasia.
She was failed at every turn.
Walmart employees wouldn't let her pay for the items she *stole*.
The cops used UNNECESSARY FORCE w/someone who couldn't comprehend them. How did everyone miss her #dementia?🤔💔
Would this woman still be alive if she was a BiPOC?


As it stands, she suffered a broken humerus & a dislocated shoulder.
The @LovelandPolice unnecessarily escalated this situation. It should have been obvious she was terrifed & not quite *all there*.😢😢😢

Ebube Agụ, like Amotekun, won't fix the broken security architecture in Alaigbo.

For the umpteenth time, I advise Governors under the aegis of @NGFSecretariat to sue for the urgent Decentralisation of @PoliceNG into 37 Independent State Police & 774 Local Police Departments.
2/ Similarly, militia groups such as the Eastern Security Network (ESN) formed by @MaziNnamdiKanu can't fix the broken security architecture in Alaigbo. Such window gives rise to the formations of more militia groups by politicians & non-State actors.

Alaigbo will surely boil.
3/ Pending Decentralisation of @PoliceNG, Ag. @PoliceNG IG, Alkali Baba Usman must rid all roadways in Alaigbo of Police Roadblocks/Checkpoints which block the free flow of human/vehicular traffic; promote corruption, extortion, arbitrary arrests & police brutalities.

I cannot believe the scenes in Bristol. Thanks to everyone who was out there, standing for democratic rights. The police clearing the streets of peaceful demonstrators through sheer violence and brutality spells the end of British democracy and respect for human rights.
I'm not exaggerating. And if you are one of those who thinks "well the police *had* to enforce the law" - which law? Which law of the land says that its people cannot occupy public spaces for democratic expression? Which law says that its streets should be clear of citizens?
Do you really think that allowing cars to drive through some Bristol streets at 2am is worth savagely beating people & denying them their basic democratic and human rights to assemble and express themselves peacefully? This is not law and order. This is dictatorship on its way.
