Media Watch thread Pt1: Media produced spin about Joanna Lumley from an article by @WalesOnline published online 3:40am. She never contacted any of the hunger strikers or anyone on the Gurkha Satyagraha team (BGSUSC)formally or informally before, during or after the hunger strike ImageImageImage

Westernized mental health frameworks are harmful & function to pathologize Indigenous peoples. If western frameworks are deemed "successful" we find our mind, body & spirit colonized. We become but a ghost of our ancestors.

Being called "resilient" for not being murdered, stolen, dying by suicide, substance use, at the hands of the justice or child protection system is messed up. Do you get how messed up that sounds?
Those who aren't actively trying to dismantle the systems that kill #BIPOC do not get to feel good about #BIPOC survival. Nor should BIPOC ever have to thank or show gratitude to the colonial system of abuse.
