1/25. Today is the ninth day of the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) and it saw the continuation of discussions on the #SantiagoNetwork for #LossAndDamage, a number of excellent side events, and importantly the adoption of the agenda. Here are some of our highlights!🧵 Image
2/25. This morning kicked off with three #LossAndDamage side events happening at the same time! Sadly we could not get to them all, but the good news is that there are webcasts with which to revisit them.
3/25. They included: "#HumanRights, #ClimateChange and disaster induced migration and #Displacement: Regional Perspectives" with @UUSC, @esperance_ong, @ALIANZAAMERICAS.

1/14. 📜Powerful new report to the #UN General Assembly by the @SRClimateChange Ian Fry makes crystal clear that #LossAndDamage from #ClimateChange is causing a litany of #HumanRights impacts. 🧵
2/14. In its introduction, the report highlights the inequality at the heart of the #ClimateCrisis: "50% of countries are responsible for 86 % of the cumulative global CO2 emissions", #AtmosphericColonization, and why #ClimateReparations are being demanded for #LossAndDamage.
3/14. Chapter three "#LossAndDamage: a litany of #HumanRights impacts" starts by highlighting that from a #HumanRights perspective #LossAndDamage is "closely related to the right to remedy and the principle of #Reparations".

I had a chance to go to this @VSOrchestra Orpheum Theatre built after the Spanish Flu to be *pandemic proof* and WOW. This ventilating system is FULLY OPERATIONAL. Huge crowd 1/n Image
@VSOrchestra And under the seats there were these mushroom shaped objects...Fresh air from pipes provided a very gentle stream of air & note these air intakes were protected by the mushroom design. the stem emitted air, the umbrella part protected it 2/n ImageImage
@VSOrchestra The air rose above the seats to the porous false ceiling above to vent all that air out! This was built in 1927 & it has better ventilation than most modern buildings #PandemicProof architecture 3/n Image

1/4. Chikapar was thrice displaced, first for the HAL MIG project, then for a naval munitions depot and once for a Military Engineering Service station. The only village to have taken on the army, navy, air force – and lost. Story link at end of thread.

2/4. All three times, the displacement of this Koraput village was for ‘development.’ Mukta Kadam was evicted the first time herding her five children through jungle on an angry monsoon night. The second time, she was thrown out with her grandchildren.

3/4. The Chikapar land taken for the MIG project was not used for that purpose, nor returned to the original owners. That is, Gadaba tribals (like Mukta Kadam), other Adivasis like Parojas and Doms (a Dalit community).

We invite you to check out the work of MADAR's amazing partners in Morocco, Algeria, & Tunisia, starting with a 🧵 about our pre-call workshops, which brought together a range of actors to identify key research & action priorities @GCRF @ahrcpress @KeeleUniversity @KeeleInclusion
The pre-call workshops were spaces for exchange between civil society, practitioners, researchers, cultural actors, and artists working on the themes of #migration, #displacement, and #protection of vulnerable displaced persons in the context of conflict
In Morocco, the team (@AisblRacines and AMI) organized six regional workshops in six Moroccan regions (Casablanca-Settat, Tanger-Tétouan-Al Hoceima, Draa Tafilalet, Fès-Meknès, Rabat-Salé-Kénitra and Souss-Massa) between November and December 2020

A THREAD: Why such massive #cocaine shipments and large port #seizures in Europe? This drug trade in pandemic has had a particular trajectory.
1/ the pandemic moved different from east to west north to south
2/ by looking at ports and trade from Latin America to major European ports I had found that container shipments did not always reduce but often routes were modified to serve ports differently (more stops regionally; longer trips)…
3/ as the pandemic affected Europe and North America ahead of Latin American countries, producers produced and traffickers tried to traffic as much as they could to build #cocaine reserves. This is why we had huge seizures in April/June last year. So that they wouldn’t run out.

1/ In reflecting on my work this year I have just realized that everything I published concerned climate change: here is a roundup of my 2020 writing on #climate #justice, climate #reparations, climate #debt, climate #displacement, climate #mobilities & #disaster #recovery
2/ My most recent online piece is on #Arctic #Mobilities, #climate #displacement and #Indigenous rights, originating from a great workshop @PennLaw_CERL…
3/ Last month I also wrote about #climate #displacement and the case for #climate #reparations and #open #borders for those fleeing climate disasters…

Many cannot imagine the end of the #capitalism - yet, the #rulingclass lives in fear of this very real threat.

Many believe we are powerless - yet, the ruling class fear #revolt/rejection of the system.

May 27 2014: Christine Lagarde (#IMF) talks #Marx:

Jan 23, 2014 Bloomberg interview with Lagarde at the World Economic Forum:

"Essentially what we believe is needed - is a #reset of the way in which the economy grows around the world."

#GreatReset #WEF

May 27, 2014, Larry Summers: "This idea that #capitalism is about to fail, is one that we have seen before":

Sept 18, 2020, WWF Too Big To Fail:

"#Ecosystems are assets. We are talking about an asset mgt. problem."

No. Ecosystems are biological COMMUNITIES that exist for their own purposes. Not ours.

Depraved #WEF, #WWF et al. after decades of plunder, plan to seize what remains. Image
"As we navigate our way through the biggest #economic #crisis since the 2nd world war, we are still facing the existential threat of biodiversity loss & climate change."

They do not give a fuck about biodiversity. They trashed it for profits. They do not care about the climate. Image
What they do care about. Protecting & expanding current power structures. Protecting the ruling class to which they belong. Profit$.

Markets are not the solution to the accelerating biodiversity crisis & ecological breakdown. They are the cause.

"Every instance of a woman in #prison is a case of double jeopardy. They suffer the burden of social rejection and an unequal legal battle,"
When #Adivasi #women fight to reclaim traditional #forest rights & #land, the state #violence is compounded with gendered violence. Image
This has been the case for Rajkumari & Sokalo of #Sonbhadra district, who've been fighting against the construction of adam on the Kanhar river, fearing #displacement & #pollution of their water source.… ImageImage
"After I joined the union (@aiufwp),I realised my rights,& now I am not afraid to ask for them,”says Sokalo. She is one of two #Adivasi women who will appear in the #SupremeCourt today, to take on the legal mantle of fighting the case against the @ForestRightsAct. @cjpindia ImageImage

Some key takeaways from @lhammondsoas on Day 1 of @GCRF @UKRI_News #GCRFAddis
1️⃣ Vulnerability is rooted in multiple inequalities
2️⃣ Vulnerabilities shift and change over time
3️⃣ Migration is important mechanism for coping with vulnerability
4️⃣ Policy can increase vulnerability
First #GCRFAddis panel on youth, gender and remittances. Interesting findings from @REFHorn on complex and variable ways in which youth training programmes in Uganda influence migration decisions including whether to return to S Sudan, move within country, migrate internationally
Context is everything in designing youth employment programmes. Fascinating example from @neelamraina on ways Kashmiri culture and identity shape hopes/aspirations of young people for the future. If difference makes you who you are then programmes should build on this #GCRFAddis

Live tweeting from #GCRFAddis symposium on #migration and #displacement unpacking roots of vulnerability in region and identifying solutions. Important to understand migration-related vulnerabilities in context of broader processes of political, economic and social change...
Great to hear about @OSSREA research in the region and across 19 countries in Africa including through South-South partnerships. More at #GCRFAddis
Helpful overview of @ICRC @ICRC_Africa work which is orientated towards translating international norms into actions. Recent focus on #migration and #displacement in context of growing politicisation of issues including through events and new publication #GCRFAddis

Thread - fascinating stories of #development in #India from students @azimpremjiuniv. 8 week field projects -sampling of diverse insights from ~160 students across India. #1 - interior forest communities struggling to transition from forest to agricultural livelihoods
#2 - more #displacement of #indigenous communities due to exclusionary #conservation
#3 #displacement of tribal communities due to dams - a sadly common story of loss and misery, and ultimately of lopsided development #8weekfieldprojects @azimpremjiuniv

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.…
H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.
