WATCH: #BNNKenya Reports.

According to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, those who were wrongfully accused should have their cases dismissed.

He made this statement in regard to his Sh7.5 billion corruption case, which the DPP withdrew due to a lack of evidence.
He praised the DPP for dismissing his graft case during a service of thanksgiving at ASK Show Ground in Baringo, but he encouraged him to take into account everyone who had been wrongfully accused.
It is a grave error to accuse someone based on their political affiliation, he claimed, thus additional cases should be withdrawn for all those who were wrongfully charged.

JUST IN: #BNNKenya Reports.

On Wednesday, November 9, Mohamed Amin met with the unit and praised the ongoing assistance while urging greater collaboration between the two nations. #Kenya #HumanRight
The importance of the British High Commission's assistance in strengthening our human resource capabilities cannot be overstated, according to DCI, who said that the National Crime Agency had been a valuable partner of theirs for a long time.
Amin Mohamed, the director of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), remembered a time when the National Crime Agency (NCA) of the United Kingdom helped to protect hundreds of helpless children from abuse and exploitation.

Detenzione amministrativa in #Israel, esempio lampante di #Apartheid a servizio dell'occupazione.

"Quando si parla di detenzione amministrativa, una delle politiche governative più aggressive immaginabili, essendo una forma di detenzione senza processo, è impossibile affidarsi all'Alta Corte di Giustizia.

Secondo un'indagine di @Haaretz, ⬇2
il tribunale non ha accolto nemmeno una petizione di annullamento di un ordine di detenzione amministrativa dall'inizio dell'anno.
L'Associazione per i diritti civili in #Israele non riesce a ricordarsi nessun caso in cui l'abbia fatto, non solo quest'anno, ma mai. ⬇3

REMEMBER THIS 👇 in upcoming debates, if YOUR representative says words to the effect of: "Oh no, we're not trying to destroy #HumanRights. We agree Human Rights are important - honest, guv! - we just don't like the UK #HumanRightsAct and/or the #EuropeanConvention (#ECHR)"...
Such claims are DEMONSTRABLY BULLSHIT if they come from the mouth of *anyone* who supports the position @CPhilpOfficial has espoused, which the @Telegraph has splashed on its front page...
To be clear, #Article4 of #UDHR 👇 (also #ECHR and #HRA) is explicit and unambiguous:

"NO ONE shall be held in #slavery or #servitude; slavery and the #slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms."

Not "British citizens"; not "lawful residents", or "people we like"... Article 1 All human beings are born free & equal in dignity

#EllasLaw | Coroner's 'Report to Prevent Future Deaths' said:

"@WHO guidelines should be seen as minimum requirements. Legally binding targets based on @WHO guidelines would reduce the number of deaths from air pollution in the UK"

@GreenJennyJones' #CleanAirHRBill does it!

@NPR is doing its annual reading and tweeting of the #DeclarationOfIndependence. 246 years ago a group of men felt it so important that they risked everything to defy a King & start a path for a democratic republic. Today we’re seeing those values attacked by the stolen #SCOTUS
The #AntiDemocraticParty of the GOP passing laws & ideas to circumnavigate the will of #Americans. On this #IndependenceDay2022, it is time to not celebrate what happened 246 years ago, but to honor it by standing up for our #FellowAmericans ensuring that #Rights and #Freedoms
Are actually for all of us. #Autonomy is a #Right. Not being shot because you look dangerous or are frightened or just went to school #Right. Loving yourself & having your ability to have your own family is a #Right. #Healthcare is a #HumanRight (#AbortionIsHealthcare)

Therapist Tip 👉🏻The Power of 'NO': the word "no" is a 'boundary'. It is a word that establishes or defines the space between you & someone else. It demands respect & is supposed to be learnt learnt through childhood development. It is a universal cue that people use #boundaries
to let others know that you are not OK about something. Boundaries are designed to keep you safe &/or establish ground rules for the relationship. One of the earliest indicators of #RedFlags in toxic people/relationships is a lack of Respect/empathy for the word "no" #SafetyFirst
This lack of respect is an 'indicator' that someone has a character/personality problem &/or flaw. If a person in your life refuses to listen or respect your "no", you may need help because you now have a 'relational' problem

Today @StateDept formally announced that violence perpetrated by Myanmar’s military against the #Rohingya constitutes genocide and crimes against humanity. This should bring renewed attention to the role of Facebook @meta in fuelling the #Rohingya genocide. 1/6
It has been 5 years of promises from @meta to “do more” and “do better.” So, are they? No. @Global_Witness had 8 ads with explicit hate speech about #Rohingya approved for publication. 👎👎👎AP News: bit.ly/3wpZiD5 2/6
This negligence is unacceptable. I saw this behavior over and over from Facebook - it ultimately led me to become a #whistleblower. @meta chronically underfunds and understaffs the teams responsible for keeping us safe — especially in the most vulnerable places in the world. 3/6

In signing the Electoral Bill into law earlier today, @MBuhari objected to s. 84(12) of the law & requires @nassnigeria effectively to amend the law in order to repeal rust provision. The #NationalAssembly must disregard & resist this request. Here is why (Thread)

#ElectoralAct Image
S. 84(12) says:

"No political appointee at any level shall be voting delegate or be voted for at the Convention or Congress of any political party for the purpose of the nomination of candidates for any election".
Now, @MBuhari claims that: The practical application of section 84(12) is to "by operation of law, subject serving political office holders to inhibitions & restrictions", disabling them from running for office or participating as party members under the constitution.

1) Just a reminder @WHO @FCTCofficial that the roof you live under is held up by pillars YOU are responsible to uphold.

If you ignore one it could bring the whole thing down.

Failing to acknowledge Article 1(d) and #harmreduction #tobaccoharmreduction is a failure of ideology.
2) That failure is not only apparent after the invention of #vape #vaping technologies but has been glaring at you and everyone that has been watching since 2006.

3) Your roof is falling down on your head.

You fail to ask the question, "Why do people use nicotine?"

Instead you dehumanize them. Demonize them. You "other" them.

Why are 70% of cigarettes smoked, smoked by the #neurodiverse?

Why do you attack #safernicotine options?

1/ Today, a friend messaged a chatroom we're in, "I'm sorry I was there yesterday". They corrected themself a moment later, they had meant to say "wasn't", but...

I'm sorry that I had to be there yesterday.

I'm sorry that our housed neighbours have shown a willingness in the past to turn...

@WhatsApp has challenged the traceability provision in the Delhi High Court stating it is unconstitutional and against the fundamental Right to #Privacy as enshrined in Justice K.S. Puttaswamy vs UOI (2017).

In order to follow the traceability provision i.e. Rule 4(2), WhatsApp would have to break end-to-end encryption for its users thereby undermining privacy of messages to its users.

In condemning the "illegal ruling" by Poland's constitutional court to ban #abortion, @MEugeniaRPalop says such criminalisation is "a violation of #WomensRights."

"It is part of an international, far-right conservative objective: to destroy gender equality."

#StrajkKobiet
"Women have the right to decide over their own bodies - a #HumanRight that cannot be violated," says @nvillumsen.

"In spite of mass street protests, by pushing through the #abortion ban with the help of illegitimate judges, the Polish government has violated EU #RuleOfLaw."
Describing Poland's #abortionban as "illegal & regressive", @deppcppeguengl's Sandra Pereira says it "goes against the dignity of women & their reproductive health rights."

"This ban also hits the most disadvantaged women in our society the hardest."

Abortion & contraception, like puberty blockers, aren't "permanent", Abigail. I admire and respect your coming out, but this is entirely wrong. /1
Abigail Thorn, @PhilosophyTube, mis-spoke when she asserted "abortion is permanent". Nope.

A child who gets an abortion can get pregnant again. Abortion makes no permanent changes to a child's body, no more than contraception or puberty blockers do. /2 From Abigail Thorn's coming-out post "In England and Wa
Pregnancy is life-threatening & irreversible for a child - pregnancy is one of the leading causes of death for teenage girls worldwide.

Everyone who says "#BoThSiDeS" can shove that phrase right up their backside, because of the @GOP using the turocharged capitalist equivalent to #warlordism in #congress and #senate, holding the entire nation as hostages for their reactionary bullshit!

And this "political #instability" and "#political uncertainty" is making the #USA a worse place to invest, conduct business in or with and to have to deal with in general.
Because Ghouls like #McCornell are just being #assholes for the sake of doing so and not facing #accountability for it!

What Skerrit is saying in regard to not bringing #tobacco under the prescription model is complete rubbish. The @TGAgovau site explicitly mentions novel #nicotine products - #SLT & #HTP.

The International Court of Justice of the Amsterdam District Court concluded that Polish courts are no longer independent and asked the @EUCourtPress about the consequences for the #EuropeanArrestWarrant regime.
Long🧵with my assessment ⬇️
1/ This is not the first time a national court has doubts as to whether suspects/convicts should be surrendered. For quite some time national courts denied surrender on various human rights grounds, in contravention of the black letter law of the Framework Decision on the #EAW.
2/ 🇬🇧 & 🇩🇪courts demanded assurances in relation to the detention conditions in certain issuing MSs already since 2013. They refused surrender in cases where they were not satisfied with the guarantees provided.

Fascinating (but not surprising) that MOST #ANTZ call out from their ECHO (Echo echo) chambers claiming to know what ALL #vape 'fans' think. So here's a tweet thread from a persons who #vapes and is a fan of #TobaccoHarmReduction, to clarify what ONE person in that group thinks.. Image
I'm completely in favor of 'phasing out' combustible #cigarettes. #THR products like #vape, #snus & #HTP could do that in a decade or so if the moron #ANTZ (like Ruth) had not demonized #nicotine & currently .. 'fight' against alternative nicotine products.
But when an #ANTZ says 'phasing out', my auto-correct inserts 'prohibition', and I definitely don't support that. It is a #HumanRight for people to choose to consume drugs, and the role of (ACTUAL) #PublicHealth ppl should be to encourage them to do so in the safest way possible.

why i am no longer publishing (my own) #research in #academic journals - a (long) thread 1/38

(some references at the end of the thread)
(i still have a few collaborative papers to write and these will be published properly for the benefit of my co-authors)

i will soon publish a paper on a pre-print server, with no intention of submitting to an academic journal. my reasons for this are manifold 2/38
1. #academia is inherently corrupt & the publication model facilitates this:
- unpaid labour (editors, peer-reviewers,& authors [ok, they do get paid by the uni which oft = public funds yet journals privately profit & we see none of this unlike other forms of publishing]) 3/38
