We should ask ourselves what #Decolonization means to Muslims, Jews, Roma, Afro/ Asian Europeans, People of Colour, LGBTIQ community, CSO's, EU institutions, policy makers of #Europe.

We must decolonise our structures that drive discrimination to built an inclusive Europe. Image
#Decolonization is essential to address structural racism in EU Member States.

Toppling statues of criminals & racist colonialists is essential to make Europe future proof just as education on the real colonial history of Europe. #BlackLivesMattters Image
From #Roosevelt to #Churchill to #LeopoldII: they are visible monuments to the greatest crime in history: #Colonialism.

Therefore, we must prioritise #decolonization to topple the invisible monuments that make our society so structurally racist. #Europe

#AbsenteeBallotNow #RegisterToVoteNow (thread)

Remember this: President Trump doesn’t even need to win in order to win. He just needs to keep enough voters from casting a ballot to slip through the Electoral College, again.
This election is too important to bet it on America’s limited ability to grok statistics. Here’s why anyone who cares about trouncing Trump should pretend the presidential polls and models have all been canceled:
No poll can account for the toxic mix of voter suppression, COVID-19, and a U.S. president willing to use every power at his disposal to prevent Americans from voting. The pandemic has sent the U.S. economy into a medical coma for 2nd time in months has crushed voter registration

Abro hilo de la TEORÍA de lo que está pasando con #wayfairtrafficking que neta si resulta ser cierto perderé oficialmente mi fe en la humanidad y más porque se relaciona directamente con la “teoría” de PizzaGate 🍕 Image
Todo comenzó hace unos días en Reddit cuando alguien de alguna manera se dio cuenta que Wayfair estaba vendiendo artículos bien equis CARÍSIMOS y con nombres de NIÑOS Y NIÑAS DESAPARECIDOS.

Como por ejemplo estas almohadas de casi 10 mil dólares. Image
¿vieron que es el mismo artículo, el mismo precio y la misma descripción excepto por los nombres del inicio?

Pueees...son apellidos de personas desaparecidas.

Ok, podría ser una coincidencia muy rara y tal vez una falla en el sistema de los precios... peroooo hay MUCHO MÁS. ImageImage

Ativistas do #BlackLivesMattters resolveram fazer uma dancinha em #Seatle. O problema é que fizeram isso vestidos de preto, numa intersecção de rodovia, durante a noite.
Resultado: dois imbecis atropelados em um gay fantasiado de personagem do Dragon Ball Z morto. Continua.
Esse é o momento do atropelamento, notem que o motorista tenta frear mas, dada a velocidade, não obtém sucesso. Continua.
Agora um homem negro está preso, porque um bando de ativistas descolados da realidade resolveram entrar em uma rodovia pra fazer protesto. Sinto pelo motorista, fodam-se os idiotas que foram atropelados. Na foto o motorista e o gay do Dragon Ball Z. ImageImage

En el 2018 la #PremierLeague le impuso a #Guardiola una multa de 20.000 libras por lucir el lazo amarillo durante los partidos como forma de protesta por los presos políticos catalanes. Image
Ayer después del partido contra el #Liverpool le preguntaron que pensaba que ahora la #PremierLeague avalaba el mensaje político del #BlackLivesMattters, a lo que dijo:

"Es una pregunta para hacer a la Premier League. Creo q todas las causas humanitarias tienen q ser defendidas"
"Mi lazo amarillo era x eso, x los presos políticos q todavía están en prisión x pedir a la gente q vote. No se me permite el lazo amarillo durante el partido pero yo siempre lo uso. Ahora x el Black Lives Matter. Todo para hacer una sociedad mejor. Todos tiene que intentarlo". Image

Storming to marita’s crib and intimidating her and her mom is not the way towards justice.
We have to understand what ACTUAL power and influence small town mayors have in relation to the city/town council and the police force.
Folks ain’t gonna be happy with politicians all the time or most the time. People fuck up and sometimes we assume values and/or don’t understand all parties they answer to.

En esta cuenta no solo se habla de cine, también se postean cosas curiosas, noticias sorprendentes o imágenes impactantes que pueden recordar a alguna película de género. Se comentan con el humor resultante de hacer esa similitud. No es una noticia, ni un juicio de valor.

I need to talk about something with my fellow #veterans, in particular the white ones. Over the past month i’ve made a request that y’all be more vocal about your service for this country. And how your fellow Black citizens don’t deserve to be gun down in the streets......
like dogs especially being unarmed by the police. Now some #veterans accepted my call and understood the power of their voice. They really tried to help even if it was just amplifying that type of message. Now i’m going to speak about the ones who either tried to........
ignore my request through continuing their silence. Whether it was based in indifference to the plight we ask Black people faced. Or as 1 or 2 in particular continued to center themselves in any conversation concerning #BlackLivesMattters. I’ve even had 1 recently.....

Let's start asking the important questions about this resolution adopted by the @Europarl_EN:

What does it mean for the mass movement of people in the EU demanding racial justice?

What effect it will have on European institutions?

“The @Europarl_EN resolution on anti-racism shows the importance of the large public movement demanding justice & is a wake-up call for the #EU to acknowledge the urgency of tackling racism, said @KMTaylorBerlin in response. @EU_Commission @helenadalli @MPriv_o @JuliePascoet #BLM Image
There are also no long-term measures for the future of policing in EU, especially measures & reflection on the use of violence in policing, which is, justified in the text, @KMTaylorBerlin said on the @Europarl_EN resolution.

#EU should come out of the state of denial on structural racism & police brutality against minorities.

Condemnations are only meaningful when they are coupled with real action to completely change racial biases in our institutions. #BlakeLivesMatter
@EU_Commission @JuliePascoet
Structural & institutional racism as well as police brutality against minorities are a national security threat to all EU member states.

Our future depends on building a union for all without structural and institutional racism. #blacklivesmatter @vonderleyen @EU_Commission Image
Failing to acknowledge police brutality in the EU a single time by @vonderleyen shows the EU continues its state of denial.

Let's ask the difficult questions on why the EU is structurally and institutionally racist. #BlackLivesMattters EU needs real change and no...

À travers le monde les mobilisations pour dénoncer les brutalités policières ne faiblissent pas et lancent aux institutions le même appel : ce système, malade de son impunité, doit cesser. Alors comment réduire les violences policières? bastamag.net/police-violenc… #BlackLivesMattters
Selon notre base de données, 57 % des victimes n’étaient pas armées quand elles ont été tuées par balles, et seulement 10 % des personnes tuées avaient préalablement attaqué les forces de l’ordre : bastamag.net/webdocs/police/

Update: 54 African countries introduced draft resolution at the UN Human Rights Council mandating the establishment of international independent investigation into police killings and repression of protests. This is huge deal! #BlackLivesMattters #HRC43
The draft resolution mandates the creation of an independent international commission of inquiry to investigate systemic racism and abuses against Black people in the United States and other parts of the world. Image
The draft resolution also mandates the commission of inquiry to examine the federal, state and local government responses to peaceful protests, including the alleged use of excessive force against protesters, bystanders and journalists. Image

Now Ben is raging - if you look at his timeline he's gone beyond what a "fruitcake and racist" would say

Ben is demonstrating here that never mind chlorinated chicken

There is a much worse US import already here

Trumpism

So let's talk about "defund the police"
Now I appreciate Ben is only a recent MP to win a seat in Parliament having joined in the 2017 general election

He also was "Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party for Youth"

Well I suppose its great to see someone cheering Boris Johnson's ever growing brood
Anyway enough about spaffer Johnson

I don't know a single woman of colour in the international development sector who hasn't suffered from racism at work. Not a single one. @WomenDeliver is being singled out today but all others orgs should listen and learn. That certainly includes White-led feminist orgs.

Sending love to the Black women who spoke out about their experiences at @WomenDeliver: @chelsea_wd @Ladelman & others. And thanks to @laurenarankin and the other allies who supported them.

@fatenaggad wrote about how she and @ir_ramdoo fought racism and sexism at their workplace. Lesson I'm learning from them: keep the receipts! A written record makes all the difference. (Also the advice French consultant @napilicaio often gives)
