Thank you @ColleenKraft for being consistently vocal 💪🏼💪🏿💪🏽

Let’s work on #tweetiatrician #advocacy training by @AmerAcadPeds to have more robust & effective strategies vs increasing backlash & #bullying
as experienced by @NicoleB_MD @DrToddWo, worse for #minoritiesinmedicine
From @bfrist on #LinkedIn: concerning loss of scientific #integrity by political agendas

#scicomm teaching has been to “avoid politics” = sitting in sidelines

why engaged #tweetiatrician were a separate species apart from other #STEM professionals

We need to be multidisciplinary like work with school nurse leader @RobinCogan

When I have taught official @AmerAcadPeds guidelines to trainees in hospital settings & staff member has walked by, they assumed “political” & “unprofessional” when per AAP

.@CHIRLA was one of many #immigrant/#refugee activist groups that I invited to participate in the @Vote_CNP conference last year in Santa Monica. I was trying to organize a participate in a round-table about what an effective and humane #immigration system would look like.
No organization local to L.A. responded with as much as a polite regret.
It is possible that an immigrant/refugee rights activist could make the CIM in to any kind of nefarious organization if they don't learn about what we are from our own writing and mouths. Chief among those myths is that the CIM is #whitesupremacist.

In 1914, Emile de Vynck, his wife and baby arrived in North Wales. Their home in Malines, Belgium had been bombed. Lloyd George found houses for several displaced families in Gwynedd, and took the de Vynck family into his own home in Criccieth.

#thread
On 16th October 1914, Emile was interviewed by The Cambrian News:

“I left Malines when the Germans bombarded it for the fifth time. Nearly everyone fled the day after the German brutes entered the town. In terror we rushed to another village.
A kindly farmer hid us in his barn and we lay there on the straw. When we woke we escaped to Duffel and from there to Bruges where we arrived at midnight and found the town in darkness. Two ladies gave us hospitality and the next day at a very early hour we went on to Ostend.

1. #DirectProvision Centres are operated by private companies. These are businesses run for profit. They are not charitable or NGO style structures.
2. These companies and their management are NOT skilled-trained experts in social-medical-physiological support.
3. Immediately, these centres must be taken into state control and be under direct oversight by HSE, Child Protection Agency. The issue of domestic abuse and women’s support is also important.

✔️#Biden is not a "moderate" #dem. He's running on a platform to the left of Obama & Hillary. If elected, he'd be the most #progressive president in our lifetimes.

This thread fact-checks a graphic circulated by #Sanders supporters that equates Biden & Trump.
✔️#Biden supports universal healthcare. He proposes adding a singlepayer Medicare option to the #ACA, open to individuals & employers. It could be immediately implemented, unlike #MedicareForAll which has a 4-yr transition.

✔️#Sanders introduced #M4A. It has 15 Senate votes.
✔️#Biden's plan to add singlepayer Medicare option to ACA follows the public/private hybrid that's most commonly used by countries with universal healthcare.

✔️Trump admin has filed suit to overturn the ACA & protections for people w/ preexisting conditions.

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

Ok folks - Day 2 of the #ICJ #Gambia v #Myanmar provisional measures hearings going to start - important as no submissions yet by Myanmar so, first formal indication of their legal strategy. [I’ll be away on an interview for a bit so hoping we have other “live tweeters”?? :)]
Agent of Myanmar: #ASSK takes the floor as minister for foreign affairs (is this the first time an agent doesn’t have a legal background); #genocide convention “wholeheartedly” signed by Myanmar; not applied to Kosovo or exodus of Serb population from Croatia. No Specific intent
Incorrect factual situation presented to court; though suffering of innocent people. #Rakhine state background - internal armed conflict; Arakan army seeks independence; displacement & conflict, affecting civilians

Thread: (1) New #asylum legislation will be voted tomorrow in the Greek parliament. Here are some points you might find useful to know regarding the process as well the content of the new law. #refugee
(2) All major national and international organisations have already criticised the gov for allowing only 5 days of public consultation as an effort to avoid scrutiny and warned the new law is leading to a backlash on human rights.
(3) The law introduces a series of measures aiming to restrict access, reduce times or terminate the asylum procedure. It also aims to expedite+increase the amount of people returned. The basis of this strategy is the re-introduction of en mass long term detention.

Simple rules: 1❤– 1 finding. 1st topic: #GBV, its consequences & risk factors.
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice So what are we actually looking into when talking about #GBV against women? Is there any definition? And where to find it? Check out #IstanbulConvention coe.int/en/web/istanbu… #VAW #HumanRights #ViolenceAgainstWomen
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice #Refugee women have different backgrounds including different personal qualities, family situations, levels of education and professions. Refugee women do not form a homogenous group, and they definitely should not be seen as uninformed #victims.

The ppl on Capitol Hill are so out of touch with #WeThePeople it sickens me.
They act like 800,000 illegal refugees wandering our country gaming our system is ok.

If the government was a real business like #WeThePeople run & work for, they'd all be bankrupt or fired.

1. ZERO DEMOCRATS ATTENDED. Our Nations Sovereignty is of no consequence to a single member of the Demoncrap party, quit voting for them.

#Climatechange got you down? These 50 people will cheer you up. This month: I'm featuring @grist's 2019 #Grist50 Fixers here on my feed. There's more than one reason for you to feel good about the future! grist.org/grist-50/2019/
Meet Ploy Achakulwisut (@_aploy). She’s got climate #activism down to a science. Ploy dedicates her work — such as research connecting #AirPollution in the southwest U.S. to premature mortality — to furthering @climate awareness. #Grist50

What did it take for Robin Amer (@rsamer) to create an award-winning investigative #podcast on #environmental justice? Three years, more than 65 interviews, and one lawsuit against the @FBI. @thecitypod talks trash — and listeners love it. #Grist50

20 years ago today, I was loaded on this train against my will and was made a #Refugee. I had done nothing wrong and broken no laws. I simply belonged to the wrong ethnic group. 1/xx
Around midday on April 1st 1999 Serbian police from Slobodan Milosevic's regime backed up by what looked like irregular militia came to my apartment building in Pristina, #Kosovo and started shooting in the air. They demanded we come out and ordered us to walk behind a car. 2/xx
From listening to the news,I knew something really bad was about to happen 2 me,but I didn’t exactly know what.The option ranged from being beaten,killed, used as a human shield to protect Serb military bases against #NATO bombing to forcefully being removed from my country.3/xx

[Thread] I research #Islamophobia for a living & I can honestly tell you that the views of the gunman in the #ChristChurch #mosqueattack are not & should not be excused as some "fringe" ideology.
I read the 74-page manifesto & the killer's talking points are the same ones I read & hear on the DAILY from mainstream politicians, anti-Muslim figureheads, & the media.
The gunmen was obsessive about white birth rates and fertility like @SteveKingIA & @geertwilderspvv are.

I keep being asked what #Dickens would have made of #Brexit. Charles & Catherine Dickens took their family to live in #Genoa, #Italy for a year (in 1844-1845) – something Brits will no longer be able to do after 29 March. #travel
Before moving to #Italy, Charles #Dickens employed Antonio Gallenga, a political #refugee from #Parma who had migrated to #London, to teach him Italian. In #Brexit Britain, Gallenga would no longer be allowed to work legally.
#Dickens wrote a #travelogue about his year in #Italy. ‘Pictures from Italy’ details the family’s travels through #Europe to their new home in #Genoa, & Dickens' #travels around the country. In #Brexit Britain Dickens would no longer have the right to work in another EU country.

The deadliest sinking of a #ship in recorded #history appears to be the sinking of the 'Wilhelm Gustloff', a ship which for the most part carried #German #refugees. I will translate the text in the below image for you. It says:
'January 30 is boat-#refugee-memorial-day!
..
..
In no accident or (terror-)attack did ever die more people at sea [ I think that that qualification may even be omitted; e.g., 9/11 and Pearl Harbour COMBINED caused far fewer casualties LG,I]; people who only wanted to save their lives and who were actual refugees without
..
..
an alternative to what they were doing. On January 30, 1945 a Soviet submarine sunk the 'Wilhelm Gustloff' with more than 10^4 passengers on board; more than 9000 died in the icy #BalticSea.'
