The #sweatshop is moving online. The #4IR will usher in
21st century #digital sweatshops.

#IamtheCODE - I am the slave to & of capital.

UN #SDGs are emerging markets - marketed under guise of protecting the planet & eradicating poverty. #WEF is at helm of implementation.
"#iamtheCODE is the first #African-led global movement..." - with love from Paris, #France, #BP Ventures, #Mastercard et al.

The road to hell is paved w/ #NGOs financed by corporate profits.

It is 20 years since the first UN General Assembly Special Session and 40 years since the first cases of AIDS were reported. In this important year, we also mark 25 years since the world came together and establishment of @UNAIDS.
#HLM2021AIDS #EndInequalitiesEndAIDS Image
@UNAIDS Since the start of the epidemic 77.5m people have become infected with HIV & 34.7m have died of AIDS. But in the past 40 yrs, we have made huge progress, the world came together, activists came together, govts came together- to turn the epidemic around
We find ourselves at a critical moment to get the world back on track to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the fragility of the health and development gains made over the past decades.

“We adopted Kiki in 2016 to her forever home. In 2021, we're told that this home is actually a fire trap. I work for an animal welfare charity, but never thought I’d campaign for giving strays a home in my professional job & advocate for safer human homes in my personal life."1/ Image
"Like so many who suffered loss, 2020 was horrendous. I became one of those 'orphaned before 30' after the passing of my mum. Just when I’m about to put 2020 behind me, we got the letter that our building is B2. The next day, fire wardens were patrolling the development." 2/ Image
"I am a reluctant cladding campaigner - because this issue should not have taken so many people so much energy for so long to demand the obvious. Esp at a time when we fall behind the majority of UN #SDGs, I can’t believe I’m campaigning for safer homes in the U.K." 3/ Image

Today is #newbook #publicationday for the 4th edition of Environmental Policy in the EU which I've had the pleasure to co-edit with Prof Andy Jordan @TyndallCentre @ueaenv for @routledgebooks

routledge.com/Environmental-…

Long-ish thread to follow....
1/25

🥳🥳🥳
This has been a long time coming: we first discussed new edition in 2016, then #Brexit (and @Brexitenv) happened. Our fantastic authors then had to grapple with #Covid, its impact on the EU as well as on their own lives...and the exciting developments re #EuropeanGreenDeal

2/25
We’re really proud of all 20 chapters from both authors new to the book & returning authors from previous editions, from all around Europe. If you are familiar with previous editions, you can expect 8 completely new chapters, more figures, boxes and tables throughout. 📈📊

"Greta Thunberg... WHO is grateful for your generosity in donating €100000 to @thewhof in support of #COVAX..."

Perplexed. What #WHO #Foundation?

Dec 8, 2020: "health expert Anil Soni has been appointed as the 1st CEO of the newly launched The WHO Foundation..."
The #WHO #Foundation - is not part of the WHO. It operates "alongside" the WHO.

Soni joined the Foundation (Jan 1, 2021) from #Viatris, a global #pharmaceutical corporation.

Nov 18, 2020: #Pfizer's Upjohn spinoff completes merger w/ Mylan to form new generics giant #Viatris.

#UKRI announced award of 141 new projects under #GCRF all addressing #SDGs

Global challenges being tackled by projects include [d]:
👉🏼environmental disasters
👉🏼education for children living through conflict
👉🏼malnutrition.” #odacuts ukri.org/news/ukri-anno…
Many of these 141 #GCRF award holders had been under strict @beisgovuk imposed embargo on #UKRI for over a year. I know, I was one of them. Delivering during the pandemic meant constant requests to ‘reprofile’ our grants meaning using resource to make projects Covid compliant
Between and in secret because of the embargo we worked out how to ensure partners had access to good enough internet for our partner meetings. This meant investing in and rapidly learning g about mobile technologies #odacuts #gcrfcuts #ukricuts

Global Citizen #storytelling w/ #Greta™️

Youth populations, largely impervious to #COVID19, should avoid the experimental jab at all costs.

#Commonsense over influencers serving capital.

Sidenote: #JohnsonandJohnson is a #GlobalCitizen core partner.
Q: "What is this content piece?"

A: "Our journalism-based, reported stories keep Global Citizens all over the world informed on the important advancements of achieving the #GlobalGoals."

"Global Goals", also known as UN #SDGs must be recognized/understood as #emergingmarkets.
The #WorldEconomicForum officially partnered with the United Nations on June 11, 2019. It now serves at the helm of implementation of the "#GlobalGoals".

#3: "Good #Health & Well-being". Trillions are riding on the vaccine market & future of #biotech. This chart is from 2016.

It's a good day for #Pakistan and a fantastic one for us.

For years, Nestle has been looking for ways to burrow into the World Health Organization so it can finally shake its pariah status.

Mar 9 2021: "#COVID19 has turbocharged normal market forces" w/ #mRNA as "shiny new object" in world of #vaccines & #biotech. With "unprecedented public funding", biotech stocks soar in tandem w/ corporate profits w/ citizens as experimental subjects.

"They (corporations) will only invest once the #market & the chances of success are well known. This doesn't mean there's zero risk. But largely, what we see is that the #PublicSector takes on most of that. But indeed, this is what allows the business of #vaccines to operate."
#PPP: Public💰$ foots bill, owns risk.
Private💰claims ownership/profits.

"#PublicSector, govts collectively, [] de-risked & subsidised the R&D process every step of the way from [] earliest stages of R&D, oftentimes to the scale up of manufacturing &, of course, purchasing."

Everyday since news of #ukricuts #gcrfcuts broke another set of previously unimaginable consequences occur:-
1) end of peer review for grants - it was already on a shoogly peg but who is now going to donate labour to laborious review of proposals - including risk assessments? 😐
2) Applications for funding - it takes two years constant work to go from idea to successful application with success rates low. To do this needs trust that if successful your work will be funded throughout (stage-gated). Right now I can’t imagine why I would EVER apply again.
3/ Partnerships. It takes years to build towards equitable partnerships in contexts of conflict & impoverishment. Some of mine are over 14 years in making. Steady, constant care. This is why they worked. Why they were funded. 1 secretive stroke of a 🇬🇧 pen and ‘poof’ - #ukricuts
