#breakthesilence
Die Kommission bedankt sich bei den Familienangehörigen von Oury Jalloh, der Initiative zum Gedenken an Oury Jalloh, Filmemachern, Brandexperten und Technikern dafür, dass sie uns eine sehr aufschlussreiche Perspektive auf die Ereignisse vom 7.
Januar 2005 im Dessauer Polizeirevier vermittelt haben. Die Videoinstallation, die wir gesehen haben, hat uns in einer Weise zu Zeugen der Ereignisse gemacht, wie es bisher nicht möglich war.

@GavinNewsom The program "Keep Your Home California" was a life saver and a home saver until it ran out of funding. If california cared about the homeless crisis more focus should be put on programs like this that actually save homes and prevent adding to the homeless pop
that you already struggle to help us tackle. Stop allowing investors and lenders to half ass their "help" for homeowners and offer real help for underwater mortgage holders now..We matter, our families matter, veterans deserve better.
Stop foreclosures now. Listen to and tell our story and the growing list of veteran families who need you to do your job and protect them. Lenders, investors and the US govt need to investigate the underwater VA mortgages and talk to us VA homeowners..

Hey everyone. We were harassed by White Supremacists armed to the teeth with assault rifles last night at our Port Washington march.

One individual did a Seig Heil salute when one of our speakers was talking, charged someone on his bike, and verbally abused two of the women...
including our colleague Brittany, after the event. The cops only cited him for Disorderly conduct as a civil offense.

They (the larger crowd) also disrupted parts of our speakers talking, yelled racist comments throughout the event, and even harassed a young black girl...
who had the incredible courage to share her story about the racism she’s experienced in our community.

A fake rumor spread on Facebook before the event that we would be burning a flag there. This was their alleged pre-text for being there to intimidate us.

“Nobody listened. Nobody cared”

A cry for help from Ifeoma Blossom Joy Obiora, a 27 year old mother who put out this and other statements that appeared to be a suicide note via her face book page to draw attention to her plight at the hand of the husband Onyebuchi Obiorah,
a Motor parts dealer at Nnewi. Both parties hail from Nnewi.

She is in danger, currently locked in with her abuser. We tried to reach out to people to check on her following her Facebook post.
We have been working our phones and when we thought help had come and four policemen
sent on rescue to her.
The worst happened, that despite her plea the police officers started blaming her for crying out for help after narrating her ordeal and the physical and mental torture.

The husband assaulted her right while police officers were trying to gain entrance.

I’ve had to pause this photo-diary of Cambridge over recent days, put my camera down and restrict what I do until I can feel safe. The CamDiary photo project which evolved out of a published written diary over 13 years ago is being halted. Black and white photo of the Senate House, University of Cambridge.
Over 11 thousand Cambridge photos with over 13 million views since 2007 - flickr.com/photos/camdiar…
Before I consider completely ending this photo project (I would prefer to continue it) and contemplate my future in Cambridge I am #breakingthesilence for the sake of my children and grandchildren. I have never discussed these painful topics before.

1. It becomes absurd & peak of ultimate ignorance when radical feminists think that GBV only happens to girls & women. Reality should open their eyes & see the other side of the coin.
Thread.
#BreakTheSilence
2. Boys & men are suffering equally due to GBV. Boys raped & men being at the receiving end of domestic violence. But one thing makes them to remain silent; the societal long living lie that men are mighty & ought not say any violence done to them by women
#breakthesilence
3. This makes them suffer internally. Psychological stress,which is the worst form of stress. Hence they get to the defensive position. How?

On Monday 27th Of January 2020 we got a distress call from a young girl in Enugu state that she was raped by a certain Uchenna Emenike. We immediately got to the victim that night and took her to the police station where she made a complaint and arrest was effected
On the alleged Rapist. The following day we took the victim to to the hospital for medical examination and the doctor confirmed that she was indeed raped. That same morning we started receiving calls from the area commander, and the inspector in charge of the case begging us to
bring the victim for negotiation, the victim vehemently refused. Subsequently, they requested that the victim comes for interview with the area commander.We kindly told them that the victim will be available the following day since she was still very much down and in trauma

Okay here I come @One_Sexy_Missus & co.
My MCM Emir has ruffled the feathers once more & as expected the dragging begins.
Yes! His highness has demystified that age old royal stool by refusing to be mute in a society bedevilled by all sorts of vices but hell bent on silence.
A silence that has sustained an artificial normalcy within and outside the region. A silence that has stalled any form of criticism within & outside the people.
Many ask he is more audio than active. You want to see him build classrooms and sponsor 100 girls abi?
MSII is smarter than that and aspires for more. Schools for girls & sponsorship of girls is a drop of bleach in an ocean of blood.
Those having analytical minds understand what SLS is trying to do. His aspiration is a North wide revolution, a North wide reform from all spheres.

Saving a life can start with a conversation. A message to a friend who may be struggling, with:

"Are you OK? I'm here for you."

Retweet this to #BreakTheSilence

Reach out, and share. If this gets 50k retweets, I will dress as a 🍕 slice for 7 days straight!

#WSPD18
We live in a society where stigma keeps many people from seeking help & treatment for themselves and stops others from talking about it. We need to change the culture around mental health & suicide, look out for one another, show compassion & have each others backs. Always!
I personally know that a simple message to someone who is struggling can literally save their life. So if you know of anyone whether that be a friend, colleague or someone else that may be feeling down or distressed please reach out.

1/21 From the very beginning #Israel planned to usurp #Palestine
#OsloPeace didn't manage to dismantle a single Settlement,to the contrary, #Israel started taking more #Palestinian Land
During the 7 yrs following #Oslo,the Settler Population within the #WestBank increased by 90%
2/21 Following Intl pressure to stop Settlements #Israel began new tactics,under the pretext of natural growth,they expanded & fattened,the existing settlements & connected them to each other & to Israel
Slicing the land blocking any possibility of a contiguous #Palestinian State
3/21 #Israeli Settlements along with their Road Network & Security Zones, occupy about 42% of Palestinian Land.
Roads btw Settlements can only be traveled by Settlers,the basic Human Right of Freedom of Movement within ones Home Country has been taken away from the #Palestinians
