Please elevate the story of #EngraciaFigueroa, a disabled Afro-Latina woman who died from injuries sustained by not having her wheelchair after @united destroyed hers. This is a #BlackLivesMatter issue. Anti- ableism must be part of our work.…
Neglect is harmful yall! Removing the things we need to live is violent, disabled or not. It is allowing our death while blaming our bodyminds for being what they are. I’ve only seen #DisabilityTwitter folks talking about this & many not using #BLM but #BlackDisabledLivesMatter!

To @sunrisemvmt: we see that you have endorsed @RepDebHaaland for Secretary of the Interior. We believe that she can be a strong candidate, but only if she is accountable for her anti-Freedmen legislation and stands up against Jim Crow in Indian Territory.…
We must protect our planet, but you cannot allow your climate change activism to be complacent with apartheid and disenfranchisement of the descendants of enslaved people owned by Native American masters. We must be treated equally and Deb Haaland has undermined us in legislation
If you believe that #ALLBlackLivesMatter, including #BlackNatives, please call for @Deb4CongressNM to meet the demands of our petition as a part of your endorsement. All Natives should be treated with dignity and respect.

#BritishEmpire is trending on twitter: and so is #BlackLivesMatter. We want to take this moment to raise awareness of the the nature Wales shares with the British Empire 1/
Both colonised and subject to colonisation, Wales has a radical potential for radical solidarity and decolonisation. We need decolonisation, desperately, and anti-colonisation, as colonialism in #Wales is not over, nor is colonialism undertaken by the #BritishEmpire 2/
Grassroots local change with the support of others can harness real tangible long-term change beyond tick-boxes, key performance indicators and unionist political parties (and non-unionist political parties who are complicit in institutional racism and anti-Blackness) 3/

⭕️ Ayer PP, PSOE, C’s, Podemos en @parlamentoUE certificaron su odio a las Naciones civilizadas, a Europa, a los Estados Unidos, a la policía, a la Ley, a la democracia; y a la verdad.
Y su cobardía innata
Ayer el Parlamento Europeo aprobó resolución sobre G. floyd
(Hilo) ⬇️
Todos los diputados españoles en Parlamento Europeo, salvo los 4 de @VOX_Europa_ que VOTAMOS NO, e Isabel Benjumea y Javier Nart que se abstuvieron, votaron sí a una resolución abominable que:

- Hace a Trump responsable de las palizas cobardes de 20 antifas contra 1 persona,
Todos hemos visto esos vídeos, esa violencia animal de los #antifas, esponsorizados por las multinacionales (Amazon, Ubereats, Microsoft) y el globalismo de ONU y ahora Parlamento Europeo.
Pero lo ocultan y se ponen de lado de los terroristas por miedo o por sumisión.

2 years ago, I submitted my doctoral thesis, entitled “What are adult mental health services doing to improve outcomes for Black service users? A mixed method analysis of Black Psychologists’ perspectives and UK mental health trust data” read it here:…
The results were disturbing, but unsurprising. I also found the process of carrying out the research, the write up and the viva extremely traumatic.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting some content, which will give you bite size chunks about my work/ findings, and experiences. But I’m the meantime if you read (some or all of) the full length version, please tweet/DM me your thoughts.
