Super excited to witness the celebration of @drtlaleng’s report on Racism @UN special rapporteur on the Right to Health, to United States General Assembly & the @TheLancet Commission on Racism, Structural Discrimination and Global Health, along with the co-leadership of @udnore✊🏾
“I think of my 8 yr old self living in Apartheid South Africa… none of this is normal, yet a so much of it is normalized.”
“I bring a true anti racist, anti-colonial, intersectional lens to my analysis.”
“Racism is a key determinant of health.”
“We want 2 use targeted research & collaboration to foster cross-sectoral policy conversations…we need 2 address the power shifts that need to happen.”
“I’m intentionally not using the term “decolonization” becos true decolonization requires a humility that is not yet present.”

Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

1/🧵 What does it mean to be human?

How do I magnify human dignity?

I face this daily as we have dying ICU patients.

Recently 2 young men w #COVID, both progressive lung failure, chose not to be put on a ventilator.

Both young & fearful they wouldn’t survive if put on vent…
2/ I kept turning up HiFlow & Bipap. At one point each asked,

“What treatment is NEXT, Doc?”

Knowing I’d exhausted our solutions, I looked up again into each man’s eyes.

Honesty is the only way...

“Sir, your disease pushed beyond our tools. There’s no ‘next.’ No cure.”
3/ “What are you saying, Doc?

Then we went through his options again, which were narrow.

Talked with family, a holy time for all…still, no vent…

“Doc, are you saying I’m going to die? Wait, I want to go home.”

1/🧵 Do you think this is WRONG⁉️
Would you be upset if you found out that a medical student had done a FULL PELVIC EXAM (or PROSTATE EXAM) under general anesthesia without explicitly telling you beforehand or even afterward?

Is this a violation of your privacy?

2/ Would you consider it A FORM OF ASSAULT if you found out that a medical student had done a FULL PELVICE EXAM (or PROSTATE EXAM) under general anesthesia without explicitly telling you beforehand or even afterward?
3/ Apparently, some medical schools are still doing this as a way to teach budding doctors how to examine the human body. Many types of injustice in medicine have occurred over the years, and this represents one of them.

Holy #ProphetMuhammad (saw) a Mercy for Mankind

“And we have sent thee not, O Muhammad, but as a mercy for all peoples.”
(Holy Qur’an 21:108)
#ProphetMuhammad Image
The #ProphetMuhammad (saw) was a true prince of #peace. He was patient in persecution and forbearing in victory. As a subject, he gave due rights to his rulers. As a ruler, he gave due rights to his subjects. He ensured every people could practise their own religion freely. (2)
He uplifted #women from a position of servitude into one of #Respect and #dignity. He insisted upon education of children, fair treatment of orphans, and compassion for the elderly. He stamped out racism and institutionalised charity in the Islamic conscience. (3)

Today we cremated my father, who died this past weekend after suffering effects of #LongCovid accelerating his dementia & other health problems. He went from an adventurer to a cripple in a matter of months. A 🧵 1/
He got COVID spring of ‘21 before being fully immunized. Initially seemed like he recovered, but clearly more trouble with memory, weakness, motivation.…
And then this sudden lack of desire to move became harder to overcome his weakness. @HeidiEngel4 @IcuPerme @ellenhillegass would have loved to have had PT prioritized for him. We knew he needed but he lacked motivation & resources…

NCRB - National #Crime Records Bureau releases data on crimes every year. The data tells a dark tale of crimes against #women. The dignity of women is non negotiable. The #Constitution of #India guarantees Right to #Life and Personal #Liberty to all #Indians. Image
Recently released figures by the National Crime Records Bureau show that an average of 93 rapes takes place every single day. #RaiseVoiceAgainstRapes Image
Our hon'ble Courts have held that Rape is a crime against the basic postulates of human rights and is an unlawful intrusion onto the right to privacy and sanctity of a female as guaranteed under Article 21 of the #ConstitutionofIndia Image

1/🧵 People ask me, “What’s the main purpose of treating #COVID ICU pts with the #A2Fbundle? (a daily safety checklist of ⬇️ sedation & ⬆️ mobilization). It’s to prevent #PICS related dementia, PTSD, depression & reduce suffering in #LongCOVID.

HOW? What is the philosophy?
2/ For patients it’s about magnifying their #dignity and self-worth by liberating them sooner from us (our treatments that put them through a depersonalization chamber). For HCWs, it’s about purity of service, avoiding hypocrisy, and better self-sacrifice for our patients.
3/ Waking people up and walking them w family at their side in PPE (even inside a room if #COVID+) allows them to feel alive again. Repersonalized! Human. Seen. Drives away #delirium & #brainfog. Wouldn’t you want this?

1/🧵 I’m surrounded by an #AntiVaxxer govt now willing to hurt kids!
👎 My home state of #Tennessee made the BONEHEADED decision to halt outreach to kids on ALL #Vaccination, NOT just #COVID19. I’ve lived here since 1997. I’m embarrassed, angry & sad.
2/ Our Department of Health is halting “all adolescent vaccine outreach for ALL diseases.” What? So we aren’t going to protect our precious kids against Tetanus, Pertussis, Diphtheria, Rotavirus, H flu, hepatitis, pneumonia, meningitis, HPV (which leads to cancer)?

3/ GONE are Postcards to teens to remind them to get a second #COVID #Vaccine shot...but adults still get the postcards. Why? “Potential solicitation to a minor.” WHAT? No, this is called #PublicHealth.

Why should adults get promotions toward #wellness and not kids?

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

I am getting this question a lot from different media outlets: What are Palestinians after, why are they protesting?

Let me try to simplify it in a way people around the world may be able to relate to.


Palestinians want what @NelsonMandela and #SteveBeko wanted: #Freedom.

Palestinians want what #MalcolmX and #MLK fought for: #Dignity & #Equality

Palestinians are struggling for what #Gandhi & #FrantzFanon fought for: #EndingColonialism

Palestinians are struggling for… 2/
Palestinians are struggling for what Simone de Beauvoir & Sojourner Truth fought for: #EndingSubjugation

Palestinians are struggling for what George Washington and Simon Bolivar fought for: #PeoplesRule #EndingAuthoritarianism

JEDER hat den gleichen RESPEKT verdient!
Aber wer mich vorsätzlich respektlos behandelt, darf in der Zukunft erstmal auch von mir keinen Respekt erwarten.
Und trotzdem:

Manchmal behandelt man jemanden auch unbeabsichtigt oder aus einer "schlechten Laune" heraus respektlos.
Für mich kann/muss ich sogar sagen, dass ich besonders in einem Teil meiner Schulzeit respektlos behandelt wurde und deshalb fällt es mir selbst manchmal schwer, angemessen respektvoll zu reagieren, da mir ein wirklich sicherer Umgang mit Respekt fehlt.

It's not surprising to me that @nytimes would essentially publish an advertisement for physician-assisted suicide. What does surprise me is how advocates fail to see how culturally formative some of these views are 1/ #hapc #hpm #MedTwitter…
The life of one person who "could no longer stand, feed or toilet himself" was described as "protracted dying." It's difficult to discern when one actually starts to die. It's a conversation worth having. 2/
However, to emphasize that dying begins when one loses independence places an immense burden on some of the most vulnerable people. Surely it's the case that dying eventually entails loss of independence, but the converse can't always be true. 3/

1/ Gabriel and family survived the trek north only to be trapped in Mexico by Trump’s cruel America. Will they now get to cross into the US?


Updates by @Enrevolucion_33 in thread...
2/ UPDATE 25 FEB: "Hi Sarah, I already registered on the UNHCR website. I received a call yesterday, asking me for more information. They said that my application is in process and to wait for another communication. It is the US gov that will decide when we cross." #WeCanWelcome
3/ UPDATE #2: "They say that today the first group of 25 people will pass to the US from Matamoros. In 16 months of waiting, it is the first time that there is positive news. We feel very happy since this marks the beginning of the end."

In light of the recent events involving the owners of #Cannoli and their manager,
we at the Centre for Labour Research (CLR), in the interest of protecting the
fundamental human #right to #dignity, condemn any and all forms of #harassment.
The viral video in which the owners of Cannoli are seen singling out and
humiliating their manager due to his inability to speak the colonisers language for
their entertainment depicts a form of #workplaceharassment. Such behaviour is
It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that each and every employee,

Personal "data #ownership" - "pure" or otherwise - is a #misnomer, and #rights frameworks clearly struggle when predicated upon notions of #DataSubjects - and when the #value (to others) of information about us lies largely in its #relationships (to others').
I'd unpack @martintisne's first point a bit further; the impacts we experience are of course based in the way we are #discriminated (for or against) by those who treat us as members of a #class by virtue of shared #characteristics on which they pass #judgement - but is that...
..."more" about "other people's #data" or more about the #judgements, and who's making 'em?

While I share concerns around 'purely' individual(istic) rights - "every woman for herself"! - the perils of #GroupRights lie in the degree to which they can undermine what must remain...

I'd like to share a lesson in patient/client/child/person centered care by my neice & nephew after my daughter tripped in the park & scraped knees.
1. Niece asks: Can I help you with your knees? (A=Yes) 'tell me when you're ready'. Niece smiles.
2. Niece explains procedure Image
(Dabbing with wet paper towel) and adds, 'this may hurt a little but it's only water and its really important to clean, you're doing great.
3. Nephew adds: ' when I get hurt I like to think of happy things. Let's see. What is your favourite thing on the whole world?
*procedure continues. A distracted by thinking of her favorite thing*
4. Niece explains next step: 'im going to put on bandaids now so we can keep playing. Do you want to run up the hill after?'
5. Niece & nephew both provide encouragement A

Food stamps. I needed some new art for the living room, so I used images related to food stamps to make a digital collage and had it printed on canvas; I like how it turned out. Why food stamps? I wanted to reclaim the power of the images. #poverty #dignity #kindness Image
I have a complicated relationship with food stamps (today we call it SNAP). I’m grateful we had food stamps so we could eat when I was young. There’s one painful memory I can’t shake.
Mom sent me to a grocery store in Greenwood in 1984 with a shopping list and a handful of food stamps which she’d torn out of the booklet they come in.

1] Received the news of the demise of #Burundi #Pres #PierreNkuruzinza with mixed feelings.

Whereas i immediately felt compassion for his loved one, can't help but feel ashamed as an #African.

Like many others, his #Presidency captured what is wrong with #African #politics. Image
2] For those not aware, #PresNkuruzinza had just finished his controversial 3rd term which began in 2015.

Many #Burundians were massacred for opposing his last term.

He had become obsessed with his #Presidency like many other #African despots.

Ofcourse #AU just watched. Image
3] Before #PresNkuruzinza stepped down, he pushed #Burundi into an election in the middle of #covid_19

He recklessly held rallies all over #Burundi

@WHO officials who cautioned his reckless conduct where simply expelled from #Burundi.

For him, #covid_19 was just a distraction. Image
