One thing I have seen weaponized against those who are marginalized and have experienced harm at those in positions of ‘leadership’ is the anger expressed. So very easy for #physicians, #researchers, #therapists, #counselors to point to the anger & exclaim ‘see how unbalanced 1/
this person is?’, ‘see how ill they are?’. When people are in positions where they have been harmed, where they have watched loved ones be harmed & it continues re of their voices, of their pleas for help, when those that are ‘suppose’ to help ignore the harms & gaslight 2/
#anger, to me, is a normal response. Yet many professionals use this instead to illustrate how ‘unstable’ a person or community is. NEVER do I condone threats or physical harm to anyone yet I have seen the #gaslighting of a group of or individual that has been viscerally 3

#Turkish theater actor Orhan Aydın:

"From all corners of my country, #voices of #people are resounding and calling the #government to #resign, #protesting the #electricity #price increases."

#turkey #inflation
On the initiative of the @istanbul_tkp, people took to the streets against the price increases in Istanbul's Gazi district protesting: "Stand up against the robbery!".
@yemeksepeti and @banabi #couriers closed their contacts for the third time #protesting the low increase in their #salaries. Representing the unionized #couriers gathered in front of the company's General Directorate in #Levent.

Science should never rest on its findings nor thwart any other opinions.

We grow by challenging science

Where would we be w/out challenging the scientific status quo🤔

Let's remind ourselves of a few things science believed + #imagine where we would be if left unchallenged.
1. Samuel Cartwright
The "slavery scientist" as they called him insisted on MANY false beliefs to further the "status quo" narrative of slavery, including slaves were #animals and to stop them from running away one should torture them and confuse them constantly.
2. Ice Pick Lobotomies
Dr. Freeman committed 3500+ Lobotomies w/ a 14% fatality rate. Many left crippled or in a vegetative state forever. This was even done to children for hyperactive behavior or low IQ.

Including JFKs little sister Rosemary.

Does #Soundproofing Work Both Ways?
Everyone who has thought of #soundproofing does have this question at some point in time? quiethome.life/soundproofing-…
If I soundproof my #room, does it offer #soundproofing to both sides, like keeping the #voices inside and blocking the noise from outside?

I am perplexed how #RogerChou can not only sit on the #CDCOWG but is a lead author. He recused himself at the #CDC meeting due to #COIs bc of his work as ‘expert witness’ in Purdue litigation but is lead author 🤷🏻‍♀️ @CDCDirector @CDCInjury could you explain how this is ethical? 1/
Listening to the #CDCOWG from perspective of #caregiver & advocate was disheartening. For me @CDCDirector assurances that #patients voices were heard was meaningless. She may say that we’ve been heard but then how are so many feeling as we haven’t been? Why are the #legislation 2
of these guidelines continuing? Why are those who have benefitted from #opioid #pain medications being removed, shamed & stigmatized? Why is care not individualized? It’s very clear our #voices have not been heard. There is nothing that was said that eased my concern for 3/

#Voices from #SOSCuba: At The Pointe of North Gables Assisted Living Community they came out in walkers and wheelchairs with an energetic burst of Cuban flag-waving while chanting: ‘Patria y Vida’. (THREAD)
They spoke - through smiles - through tears - of the wait….
A lifetime of wait….
A hope that this may just be the moment…that Cuba will finally be free… #SOSCuba
A desire that perhaps they can return home. “That we are going to be free, I am going to be able to return and die there.” - Andres Torres, 77-years-old
…with a peace of spirit knowing they witnessed freedom…#SOSCuba

I posted this yesterday with parents permission. I wanted to expand on this video a bit.

1st, a big part of me feels very uncomfortable with posting. Just like a big part of me felt uncomfortable about posting about my kids experience (w permission). It feels exploitive. 1/
Yet, when I share experiences of #caregivers & or #patients (who had given me permission to share) those experiences were/are often questioned or I’ve been excused of exaggerating. Or like many others called a #shill for #Pharmaceutical companies. I am a mother, who 2/
witnessed first hand the harms of pain ignored, not treated, under treated or labeled as #psychosomatic. I remember very vividly how my kids would arch their backs in pain & scream. How helpless I felt. I have seen the repercussions of this #harm & am absolutely obsessed 3/

#PatientCentric care, #PtExperience #Tokenism, #HoldingSpace #WeAreBetterTogether ⚠️ long thread.
Recently I attended a meeting of an organization whose focus is in improving #healthcare. This is a highly respected organization. One ☝🏼 of their founding principles is the 1/
engagement of various #stakeholders including #patients and #caregivers. This was not the 1st meeting of this org. I have attended. I walked away from this particular meeting sad, frustrated & a bit angry. The topic was on #patientcentric care. A topic that is near & dear 2/
to me. The caliber of individuals involved was spectacular; academics, researchers, consultants. As I scrolled through participants as well as listened to the conversation and watched the comments come across the screen I was enthralled with the dialogue however 3/

My story starts in a small town from the northern region of the warm vibrant and culturally diverse #India.
#VoicesIWS Image
Born as 3rd daughter in a culture where birth of a daughter is resented by many, my parents had to deal with 'eerie' solutions from society to get rid of the "burden" that I was about to become. But, my visionary parent-warriors had their armours on! 😇

"You're just jealous that the voices only speak to me"
We all have voices that speak to us. Some might say "Buy that expensive car" other might say "Why not invest that money for retirement?"
#2 We need to decide which voices we listen to: will we listen to the instant gratification voices that will fill our tummies and satisfy our lusts for physical goods, or will we delay our gratification for a while?
#3 If we delay our gratification and listen to the voice of reason, we will reap the rewards in future. As we listen to the loudest voice, we need to find ways to make the most important voices loudest.

1/ Not responded to the #CofE's latest #statement before now because I felt it as a body blow - a blow to those members of the #body of #Christ who God gave me as siblings & with whom I am united, whose pain echoes in me though it is not directly my own - & I needed to breathe...
2/ The #statement is thin paper stretched over a seething mass of different, deeply held #identities, opinions, lives & #loves that stand in #opposition to one another, yet somehow mysteriously #united in #Christ. There are #cracks we cannot paper over, divides staggeringly deep.
3/ I am really hoping this #lawyerly #statement from the church was just a 'holding statement' till the proper review that is coming, made because the law on civil #marriage changing pushed them into saying something because clergy would need guidance straight away..I am hoping..

As a child, how would you have liked moving schools in new cities with different cultures every 2-4 years?

Growing up in the #IndianArmy, I absolutely loved it! By the time I was 18, we had moved over 9 times across 9 states! #Diversity #India #TravelTuesday #IWS #VoicesIWS
My #memories of #India include sunny days, welcoming people, rich heritage, vibrant colors, abundant fruits and mouth-watering street food! #IWS #VoicesIWS

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org are two good resources to help you.
