@NPR is doing its annual reading and tweeting of the #DeclarationOfIndependence. 246 years ago a group of men felt it so important that they risked everything to defy a King & start a path for a democratic republic. Today we’re seeing those values attacked by the stolen #SCOTUS
The #AntiDemocraticParty of the GOP passing laws & ideas to circumnavigate the will of #Americans. On this #IndependenceDay2022, it is time to not celebrate what happened 246 years ago, but to honor it by standing up for our #FellowAmericans ensuring that #Rights and #Freedoms
Are actually for all of us. #Autonomy is a #Right. Not being shot because you look dangerous or are frightened or just went to school #Right. Loving yourself & having your ability to have your own family is a #Right. #Healthcare is a #HumanRight (#AbortionIsHealthcare)

#BerniesMittens And Why It Is Such A Sensation.

Do you know those moments at a funeral, or after a person dies, when you start sharing memories and the grief briefly turns to laughter and joy? Well that’s a little bit of what’s happening now.
#BerniesMittens is a collective expression of our love for a man and a movement. It is our expression of deep-seated hope that we are all willing to #FightForSomeoneWeDontKnow.
Bernie could have been president. Bernie should have been president.
3/ 🥊🧡🔥
So many of us are grieving that. There have been so many events that put the nail in the coffin of Bernie‘s presidency. Twice. Our grief has come in punches since 2016. Our dreams and hopes smashed, over and over.
This time, ....

Today is the #InternationalDayofSolidaritywiththePalestinianPeople. The UN established it in 1977 in the context of anti-imperial resistance, particularly to the United States, which has been blocking pathways to freedom for Palestinians. #Palestinians #Solidarity #Thread
The #Palestinian #Liberation Organization entered the #UN foray in 1974 & immediately helped pass UNGA Res 3236 - a corrective to UNSC Res 242, which normalized Israel's status pre 1967 & reified the juridical erasure of Palestinians as a people w the right to self-determination.
In 1975, the UNGA passed Res 3375 insisting that the PLO be included in the Middle East Peace Process - which the US and Israel excluded vehemently and instead discussed their interests through proxy of other Arab States thus insisting that #Palestinians "do not exist." #Freedom

[1/9] As part of our 2020 ad tracker project, here is a break down of the worst #DogWhistleAd of the week.

Find out more about this campaign and if politicians in your district are using coded racist ads to get elected with our tracker: Image
[2/9] Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC), a PAC that focuses on State legislative races, is continuing to stitch together fear-mongering around anti-racist protests with an anti-immigrant message with attack ads against Georgia House Minority Leader Bob Trammell.
[3/9] This week, the RSLC launched radio and TV ads. Their radio ad attempts to draw a line of fear of the non-white other from Trammell’s alleged support for BLM to a staged vote banning local governments from hiring undocumented workers.

TROY, NY - This afternoon, the Troy DSA #DefundTroyPD working group submitted multiple Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) requests with the city of Troy for the disciplinary records of multiple police officers considered to be infamously brutal by community members.
The requests come after a sustained outcry from Troy residents calling on the Troy City Council and @MayorMadden to release the personnel files of Troy Police officers following the repeal of section 50-a of the New York State Civil Rights Law, which they refused to do.
In total, Troy DSA submitted 24 FOIL requests with the city of Troy for the following items:

Very interesting program

3-"are out there, responding to, helping contain, and supporting us all through the COVID-19 pandemic. As this crisis develops, Americans, regardless of where we were born, are standing shoulder to shoulder, and all of our contributions to the economy and society are ever more

What's so ironic about all of this is that EVERYONE knows it doesn't have to be this way.
We have a 50-yearlong storied and iconic franchise that has inspired nearly all of our extant technology and "progress"....what's sad to me is that we've spent BILLIONS of dollars
investing in something that most fans think can never actually be achieved in our lifetime.
That's sad.
If you're a Star Trek fan and you think we can't make Star Trek a reality in our lifetime, you're missing the whole point.
We don't need WWIII or #FirstContact w/aliens
in order to make the world work more similarly to the way it does in @StarTrek.
Why not? Well, #1 problem in our world is hunger. We have 3D printers we can make guns with, but not food? I'm sure we're well on our way with lab-grown meat eh?
What's next?

#M4A is not a political issue, it’s a human rights issue, a life & death issue. We have to talk about how we make it happen & allay fear of changed stoked by those profiting from the current cruel system. Let’s stop corporations from weaponizing healthcare in negotiations. 1/3
The unapologetic vision set by @BernieSanders was achieved in Canada by #TommyDouglas in 1966! We are closer than ever to taking care of everyone because of this leadership. Thank you, Bernie!!! 2/3
We need bold vision and strategic planning to make this happen. I appreciate so much the plan put forward by @ewarren to detail the executive power to keep us pushing forward to universal healthcare. @AdyBarkan says it best in this thread.
#AllOfUs 3/3

@FDACommissioner @NIHDirector NIH director Francis Collins on pain management therapies beyond opioids: "Industry has had a lot of leads but it's kind of been a market failure." and notes that some of that is bc not clear if they'd get FDA approval
