Want a feel for how extensive, entrenched and structured the hatred in America is for our tens of millions of drug users? Take this #ThoughtExperiment with me....

IMAGINE for a moment that you woke up tomorrow to the news that the entire retail #alcohol supply in the #US was randomly contaminated with deadly levels of #fentanyl. A one ounce shot could put you into respiratory arrest in 120 seconds, quickly followed by cardiac arrest.

The proper administration of #NARCAN within minutes or #RescueBreathing is your only hope for survival; #911 and #EMS can’t get there that fast.

Now IMAGINE for a moment what the governmental and civil society response would be to this news...

1. da leggere #GiuseppeLoBianco su #SaverioLodato che sollecita "l'apertura degli archivi di Stato italiano e statunitensi" su stragi #Falcone e #Borsellino. ilfattoquotidiano.it/in-edicola/art… Le rivelazioni di #SaverioLodato sono emerse grazie a #Atlantide di @andreapurgatori
2. vi voglio aiutare a capire. Chi ha in mano sicuramente le intercettazioni dei rapporti tra lo Stato italiano e la mafia? La #NSA: "E' la più grande, la più costosa e la più tecnologicamente sofisticata organizzazione di spionaggio che il mondo abbia mai conosciuto"
3. la #NSA, grande 3 volte la #CIA, ha lo #SpecialCollectionService (SCS). Noi sappiamo alcune informazioni fattuali sull'SCS solo grazie ai file di #Snowden. Cosa dicono? Che l'SCS ha come missione di raccogliere intelligence sulla leadership di un Paese.

🔥🔥OPEN LETTER to @govbc

Re: “Twelve Points for Action to Prevent and Manage #COVID19 for People who are Homeless/At Risk of Homelessness and People who use Drugs”

1. Handwashing stations immediately needed in public locations.

Today there were over 150 people on Pandora avenue in #Victoria; how are we prioritizing hand washing without access to clean water and sinks?
2. Immediately identify spaces for homeless and unstable housed people to stay at home and to self-isolate when symptomatic.

HOUSING IS FRONTLINE PROTECTION. ✅

Hear ye, hear ye!

Ye old #Alberta government has released its FLAWED, and GASLIT #SCS review report.

Associate Minister @jasonluan88 promised an unbiased perspective.

The only ones who look stupid here, are those of us who believed him.

Before we dive into the report, let’s talk about the Associate Minister and his esteemed panel for a moment.

Not a single member who has worked at or accessed an SCS; surely criminologists and retired cops will present an unbiased approach. 😒

Next, let’s see what the Ass. Minister has had to say about SCS and #harmreduction.

Surely his beliefs about Big Pharma funding research for harm reduction, and that #naloxone is an enabler couldn’t have impacted the committees viewpoints?

#China will attempt a forceful unification with #Taiwan by 2021, the centenary of the Chinese Communist Party. Xi's grand dream of national rejuvenation entails unifying all that #CCP considers Chinese lands, especially Taiwan.

This THREAD looks at this potential scenario.
The legitimacy of the #CCP regime under Xi is based on the twin pillars of economic growth and nationalism. For the party-state, unifying the mainland and Taiwan is critical to its aspirations of national rejuvenation and erasure of national humiliation.
Why would PRC force a unification as early as 2021? 1) 2021 is the centenary of the #CCP; anniversaries and dates have massive symbolic importance in China's political culture. 2) Xi wants unification to be part of his legacy. This is the only way that he can outshine #Mao.
