I reached out to @MumbaiPolice @pmo @cmo @AmitShah @PawarSpeaks @NCWIndia & every politician of every party on #sanjayraut harassment issue. Nobody helped me. I won’t die like #SSR I won’t give up.I will fight.Join my fight.This hashtag is my identity #myrightmyfight Please RT.
#MaharashtraGovernment is now used to murders being documented as suicides. I have already made it clear in my letter. I’m very strong. If I’m dead, it can only be a murder. #SSR was killed. He did not get a chance to say this, so I have stated my point much before the event.
I filed a writ in #HighCourt hoping that the judicial system will help. But the court does not find this issue emergency so does not come on board. If I was an actress, It would be easy. The only way left now is to fight alone with the help of public of India #myrightmyfight

IMPORTANT context of the supposedly-imminent further #Russia invasion of #Ukraine: outsiders might assume that recent domestic UA developments are somehow unbearable for #Putin or ruining his Ukraine takeover plans.
They're NOT (analysis🧵👇)
Despite #Ukraine public's steady and overwhelming resentment of #Russia and capitulation to the latter (as shown by polls), Kremlin's chances for a successful "hybrid" (less-bloody) capture of Ukraine (for a short time, of course) aren't completely gone:
1. There's demonstrable, increasingly-overt pro-Kremlin influence in #Ukraine President Zelensky's Office, Prosecutor General's Office, courts etc.
This influence might be rival to the #Putin's relative & traditional envoy Medvedchuk, but it's certainly beneficial for #Russia.

**ACTION ITEM BELOW**
On Monday, two Good Shepherd Collective members headed to #Ofer #military court & #prison to stand in #solidarity with Sami Huraini of Youth Of Sumud / شباب صمود and his family on the day of his trial.
Although we were unable to join Sami in the #courtroom, we sat with his family and dozens of other #Palestinians awaiting their family members, imprisoned and/or awaiting #prosecution in the #military #court system.
In Sami’s case, his trial was postponed, granting momentary relief despite a continuation of the bail conditions which prevent him from participating in #protests—essentially, keeping him from exercising his most basic right to #free speech and #resistance to #oppression.

#America's corrupt #CIA appears to be assisting this goal, via #JohnBrennan's goon squads and hit teams, that attack average American citizens & #StopTPP #activists, if they speak out about #CPTPP's shift toward global slavery & the betrayal of our sovereignty and Constitution.
Phony #Russiagate was manufactured by criminal #CIA & #FBI, who tried to frame #StopTPP activists as "Russian spies," w/falsified evidence from #JohnBrennan's wretched goon squads.
Every "security" operative associated w/#Brennan's private #CrossfireHurricane fusion center, with hand-picked criminals from #CIA & #FBI, should legally get life prison sentences or the DP for betraying our country.

I mock #HunterBiden, b/c I feel upset & threatened by the actions of this man, for placing our country's (relative) freedom at stake, when he accepted bribes from #CCP, due to his addiction...but...
...when I read this, that #HunterBiden was critically injured, early in life, in a car accident...some of his behavior is not surprising...he probably had a head injury, which could have led to brain damage, drug addiction & poor judgement...

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neilia_Hu…
...stakes are so high for our country, it's difficult to have empathy for him...his brain damage may have triggered the end of our country, if his involvement with #CCP leads to a loss of sovereignty for the #USA...

"This is our moment of opportunity! But how?"

This is a short thread on how "trusted #messengers" & technology ("#vaxbots"; "vaccine bots"; AI) will (most certainly) be utilized to mitigate/overcome vaccine hesitancy.

Vaccine Confidence Project, Nov 9 2020

#COVID19
A "Pro-vaccinate #movement"

"The big search for new, trusted messengers to reach the hesitant audiences (Kim Kardashian or the #NHS?)"

"#Health Providers are confused". In truth, many health providers are not confused. Rather, they are increasingly concerned.
"Increasing Confidence in the Flu #Vaccine among African Americans and Implications for #COVID19 vaccines"

"Building #trust"

"We have built many relationships and a high degree of credibility which means we can engage other researchers with our community partners."

📢📢 THREAD: Why Must the Criminal Law Reform Committee be Disbanded?
#DisbandtheCommittee #NotLikeThis #NotRightNow #NotWithoutUs

(1/n)
⬇️⬇️
In May, the Ministry of Home Affairs commissioned a #committee for reforms in our criminal #laws. In simple words, a #committee to rewrite all our criminal #laws.

(2/n)
Experts fear that the committee will dilute safeguards that exist to prevent unfair prosecutions & wrongful convictions. Several #lawyers, #activists, & academics have raised concerns about the #committee and called for it to be disbanded. But why? Let's take a look ⬇️

I've watched & sure #Anons have seen massive followers to accounts including my own. We have no idea who the majority are. New #Anon accounts credible accounts are blindly retweeting. Im watching archiving will be calling you out. Stan/Simp or LEO careful who you trust
New accounts & OG's if you fall for this to famefag for likes & retweets FYI ppl are watching & wondering. If you're not careful you'll end up famous & not for doing good. 👀 U
There are new ppl who are legit & want to know how to help the movement which we should be patient & help show them resources for their own research. However accounts begging to be choked/anything sexual should be blocked/ignored/reported take your pick. #KnowledgeIsPower

🛡️ Online #privacy and #anonymity advice for #activists! 🚨 Please RT! 🚨

If you are in the front lines right now, cover your face and prep your phone with extra tools to protect yourself and your friends!

⬇️ For basic starter tools, check out this thread for tips! ⬇️ [1/6]
1. Leave no trace with a #VPN

A VPN hides what you do and what websites you visit from whoever gives the Internet. This could be a Wi-Fi network or your phone carrier.

Not sure where to start? @ProtonVPN has a free tier for activists. [2/6]
2. Protect your messages and your friends' identities with @signalapp.

Signal is a secure messaging app. Like WhatsApp but stores less info about you and your messages.

Best part is disappearing messages. Make messages disappear after 10 mins, 1 hour, 1 day of being read! [3/6]

@verified We've paused general public, who we think don't deserve our so called verified club, submissions for verification?

@Twitter What’s happening?! I pretend not to know?

@TwitterSupport Here to help. Officially. To only the selected & elected? Plz don't disappoint users.
16 Nov 2017 is the date when Twitter verification program went on hold, since then it's not open for general public.

@Twitter can you please specify what does "general public" mean & those users whose profile got #blue batch during the profile verification suspension period? 1/n
It's shame that verified profile is only for selected & elected but not for general public who greatly contribute to #twitter platform.

Why general public who are true, accurate & justified users be denied blue batch opportunity. 2/n

Hey #activists & #nonprofits!!

"A 21-second video shared by the Trump War Room Twitter account featured the dramatic scene from Marvel's 'Avengers: Endgame' in which supervillain Thanos ..."

A 20 second (!!) video + pop culture.

You doing that?
washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/12…
Actually, I'll answer my own question: No. You're probably not.

The right has gotten better at digital strategy + psychographics.

#NatSec #DataScience
The left? Not so much. I lead a digital marketing firm & I regularly give talks about how to leverage pop culture for #SocialGood. Why? Because that's where the people are.

Here is a social experiment.

Will I be reported to @Twitter for using offensive and demeaning language if I use -- correctly -- the word "#niggardly" -- in a sentence?

The Hawaii Supreme Court rejected the tax assessor's approach as a niggardly construction of the statute.
I've been reviewing decisions of the #HawaiiSupremeCourt on the question of whether #nonprofits were properly charged a #generalexcise #tax under Hawaiian law for various activities and operations that produced #income to the organization.
Courts begin (and end) their principal analysis of such issues by examining an underlying tax law, code, rule, or regulation.

Before you defend the mullahs in #Iran & stop efforts to hold them accountable--know the struggle of the #Iranian people & their pains and sufferings as described by imprisoned #humanrights activist #GolrokhIraee women.ncr-iran.org/2019/01/06/gol… 1/18
We, who tolerated the pain, the poverty, the fall into the depths of fundamentalism, and over a century of tyranny. We, who were lashed but stood up. We, who lost our people but survived. We, who spread our empty tablecloths but carried on.

#Iran #FreeIran
2/18
By the grave of our pens, we sang the song of freedom & did not relent. Now we're pounding at the trembling pillars of fundamentalism. Until the cracks in the wall of theocracy r widened, we shall stand, even if the hangman’s poisonous dagger pierces in2 our body..

At the @MM_JCCManhattan for a conversation between @bariweiss @BTselemUSA brand new US director @simonerzim @AJCGlobal @AviMayer and @tabletmag editor at large (?) @CarlyPildis.
.@simonerzim wow. Explaining why she is sitting in this seat. On the power of encountering Palestinian families evicted from their homes in Sheikh Jarakh, seeing for the first time the meaning to Palestinians of the 🇮🇱 flag, I can’t really summarize in a tweet how powerful. Watch
@AviMayer: American and Israeli jews don’t get each other. Sees himself as a translator. Wants to mend the relationship.
