I don't use my real name on twitter because I can't afford to.

I have multiple environmental complaints and disability discrimination challenges lodged with various state or statuatory bodies, and am trying to gather information on others, with the end goal of legal action.
I have also left or turned down jobs due in research due to the mining influence on academic freedom in science, and public service jobs over the politics and suppression of information in Qld.

Then there has been the personal and police intimidation.
Police intimidation at legal protests is sadly not unusual in Qld, under Joh or Dutton.

But I was concerned about the Fixated Persons Unit intimidating environmental whistleblowers here, and the environmental focus of police raids, attempts to change protest laws in Qld

Secret BBC Wattsapp group overrun with toxic transphobia.

"A senior producer replied: “I would agree, if it was just a case of being nice. But it erases the meaning of ‘woman’, you can’t define women’s rights if you can’t define women."

For public servants in government,

Recommend reading Stuart Gerson's powerful July 4 essay — essentially an open letter about service to country, rule of law, #patriotism, #whistleblowing and more.👇

Want to know why it’s so hard for #cops to be ‘good apples’...

It was 2007 and I was assisting a call with an officer I’d never met before. He was from another team working overtime. Right in front of me he broke a kids nose with a punch. The septum was clearly deviated and
blood was everywhere. The kid was handcuffed and the officer enquired of me “what should ‘we’ arrest him for?” “What did he do?” I enquired. “He called me a name.” he said. After 20 mins of him trying to persuade me we should fabricate a crime he had to let the kid go. “We need
to do notes, get our story straight” he then told me. I don’t need assistance in writing what happened. I found a quiet place and wrote the facts. As I wrote I was joined by a female A/Sgt who knew this officer. She spent 20 mins trying to convince me this kid was a “shitbag” &

#JournalistsSpeakUpForAssange We express our grave concern for #Assange wellbeing, his detention and the draconian espionage charges. This case stands at the heart of #freespeech .@gianninasegnini signed speak-up-for-assange.org
#Assange made an outstanding contribution to public interest journalism, transparency, government accountability. He is singled out and prosecuted for publishing information that should never have been withheld from the public .@noamchomskyT signed #JournalistsSpeakUpForAssange
Julian Assange charged #EspionageAct for publishing #WarDiaries State Dept Cables In a democracy, journalists can reveal war crimes torture and abuse without having to go to jail. It is the very role of the press in a democracy. .@edwyplenel signed #JournalistsSpeakUpForAssange

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

2/16 Silencing expert voices in the cybersecurity discussion space is a
strategy for weakness not strength, as any Red Team expert would tell
you. #CyberCon #CensorCon
3/16 The @CyberGovAU removed me from the #AISA #CyberCon speakers list
8 days b4 the event. Reason: my talk content was 'incongruent' w/ the
largest cybersec conf in AU. Yet they had not seen my talk content yet.
#CensorCon #cyber #infosec #cybersecurity #informationsecurity
4/16 #CyberCon removed me from the speakers list based on my talk title
alone. I'm not the only speaker removed: @Thomas_Drake1 was also disinvited. Others
told to alter format. #CensorCon #cyber #infosec #cybersecurity #informationsecurity

WHISTLEBLOWING: Today, in accordance with our whistleblowing polices, I have formally reported my concerns about #seriousmalpractice in @TheGreenParty to the CEO and Chair of Executive. #GreenParty #whistleblowing #complainantidentity #Challenor @VeritaUK @InquiryCSA Please RT
It is with #heavyheart that after 16 yrs in Party I have felt need to do so. I cannot sit back & watch Party corrupted by those who wld abuse their membership rights or subvert their officer roles – a Party which I & Greens before me have toiled over for sake of people and planet
I am raising alarm abt #seriousmalpractice in way members are being disciplined, now & in recent past, with regard to allegations of “transphobia”. I'm calling for urgent review of our complaints system & #specialmeasures to police these processes & safeguard against their abuse.

"#Assange is a courageous and fearless publisher who is being persecuted for exposing the atrocities of the corporate state and imperialism" truthdig.com/articles/the-w…
«The extradition of the publisher—the maniacal goal of the #US government—would set a legal precedent that would criminalize any journalistic oversight or investigation of the corporate state. It would turn leaks and #whistleblowing into treason»
#FreeAssange
«If #Assange is extradited to the #UnitedStates and sentenced, The #NewYorkTimes, The #WashingtonPost and every other media organization, no matter how tepid their coverage of the corporate state, would be subject to the same draconian #censorship»
