We’ve been overwhelmed by the support for our e-action, 77,284 at last count! Lots of you are getting replies from your MPs. It is great to read the positive ones, but we know many of you are disappointed that some have been less positive (1/5)
Thanks to your support, the media coverage on the recent UK #Government announcements has been very fast-paced. Some MPs have questioned why we are claiming this is an #AttackOnNature, so it’s important that we are clear on why we, the RSPB, are raising concerns about this. (2/5)
We are raising the alarm about what recent announcements could mean for nature, the environment and for people. If you have had a response from your MP questioning our position or facts, here's some guidance to help you respond! bit.ly/AttackOnNature2 (3/5)

Tez Burns, a 34 year old bicycle mechanic from Swansea, was imprisoned last week for peacefully demanding that the #Government stops giving out new oil and gas licences. Oil is causing the climate and #CostOfLivingCrisis, making us poorer, destroying jobs and killing us now.
“Civil resistance is our best chance of ending the cost of living crisis and the climate crisis, everything else has been tried and failed. It is the best use of our time and energy if we want change to happen.
“Rather than wasting billions subsidising the rising cost of energy and putting more money in the pockets of the oil companies, protect your citizens by investing in renewable energy and insulating our homes.

Please retweet and share if you support my and others' vaccine injury recoveries. Image
My fiancé and I were supposed to get married in July 2022. Given the first 2 vaccine mandates, we figured that we had no choice but to keep on taking the boosters in order to be able to travel for our honeymoon / have liberties to go to stores etc.
We decided to take the 3rd @moderna_tx booster anticipating that perhaps it would also be mandated by the #Canadian #government.

Yesterday, most of the Oil Explorer and Producing Companies Like #Reliance, #Ongc, #MRPL were down by 10%.

There were multiple reasons for this. So let's discuss each reason one by one.

Before going ahead, Like and Retweet this tweet for wider reach.
First Reason:

#Government imposed taxes on the export of petrol, diesel, and jet fuel shipped overseas by Indian firms.
A tax of ₹6/L on exports of petrol and aviation turbine fuel and ₹13/L on exports of diesel will be levied.
The step is aimed at meeting the demand of the domestic market.

The taxes on exports come after oil refiners, particularly from the private sector, attracted huge gains from exporting fuel to markets such as Europe and the US amid a surge in international oil prices.

Which one of you is going to expose @sajidjavid for not procuring #Evusheld for immunosuppressed blood cancer, transplant patients and others who are under house arrest?
#Evusheld was approved by MHRA in March 22. Despite the emergence of Omicron the government continued to give Booster Vaccinations. They didn’t donfurther testing to confirm efficacy against new variants. They never have. BUT ….
Clinically extremely vulnerable patients who are immune compromised don’t mount a good response to these freely available vaccines, pushed on the public constantly, some can’t even have them because of contra indications to their life saving drugs.

I don’t know why so many people working in wealth management keep requesting to connect and speak with me.
If you work in wealth management, I think you should know:

👉🏽 Nearly half of everyone in the UK that lives in poverty is disabled or lives with a disabled family member.
👉🏽 More than 600,000 disabled people in the UK are estimated to have £10 or less per week to pay for food and other costs.
👉🏽 Disabled people have to pay more to try and live the same lives as non-disabled people, but we have less or no choice due to inaccessibility, ableism and stigmas against us.

2/ I was raised Catholic and believe in this (ctto via reddit)

Love thy neighbor.
All neighbors. No exceptions.

If I really hated them then I just did not hang out w them 🤷🏻‍♀️. No hateful speech or hateful laws.

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.
