2/ Invest in MEDIA LITERACY + RESILIENCE/discernment for news consumers - how to spot both individual items of synthetic media (e.g. via visible anomalies such as mouth distortion often present in current deepfakes) as well as develop approaches to assessing image credibility
2/We've had fake images and CGI for years, so what's different now (beyond enabling us to transplant Nicolas Cage's face to other people). The ease of making #deepfakes is captured by the vlogger Tom Scott
3/ = Barriers to entry to manipulate audio and video are falling - costs less, needs less tech expertise, uses open-source code + cloud computing power. Plus, sophistication of manipulation of social media spaces by bad actors makes it easier to weaponize and to micro-target.
Around 20 #NHS staff in a letter told - Theresa May of their “great sorrow and shame” that “hostile environment” immigration policies which she initiated are leading to needless suffering and early death.
This thread is not about making you feel guilty. Know that I write this with love to you because I love you & want better for our City. In order for our City to thrive we must work towards certain goals together.
@Scottludlam told the panel: “One of the reasons Julian is in the jam that he’s in, is that he is an uncompromising bastard. Compromising the integrity of the work [is not something he would do], because if he [was inclined to do so], he would have cut some kind of deal already.”
@deCespedes said: “It’s up to us to ensure that we have access to this public repository of knowledge.” Like other attendees, Barreto raised the importance of organizing on-the-ground protests and actions.
As #OneOfThe3Million I have become aware how some people in our society are subject to a catalogue of horrendous fees as well as harsh, illogical & often frankly inhumane rules @ukhomeoffice applies without any consideration of their circumstances & their established lives here
.@WSWS_Updates reported in June:
"Ecuador’s foreign minister has indicated moves are underway to force the WikiLeaks editor out of Ecuador’s London embassy, where he was granted political asylum six years ago."
1. Finland is not a neutral country. We chose our side when we joined European Union in 1995. Finland chose to be on the side of #humanrights, #democracy, #ruleoflaw and multilateral world order. Finnish foreign policy is based on promoting and defending these values.
2. Women's rights are human rights. We believe the world would be a better place for everyone if #WomensRights and girls' rights would be recognised and respected all around the world.

1/ As a circuit court judge, Brett Kavanaugh dissented in a 2011 case filed by Indonesian villagers in the province of Aceh who accused Exxon Mobil of letting private security forces murder, torture, and abuse local residents on company property. cadc.uscourts.gov/internet/opini…
2/ The case was filed by the HR group International Rights Advocates in 2001, citing the 1789 Alien Tort Statute, a law used by other victims of HR abuses overseas to seek civil redress in US courts against corporations or individuals resident in the US. iradvocates.org/case/asia-indo…
3/ The legal argument was that Exxon was responsible for crimes committed by Indonesian security forces working for it on its property. A majority of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals decided that Exxon Mobil could be held legally accountable if the charges were proven true.
Millions of Iranians seek establishment of secular democracy in #Iran. The path toward this goal begins with acknowledgement of two fundamental truths: (1) this regime poses an existential threat to Iran & its citizens; and (2) this regime cannot be reformed. #دیگه_تمومه_ماجرا
From there this path proceeds with civil disobedience/non-violent protests to end the regime; then it runs through free & fair elections for a constitutional assembly; and finally it arrives at a national referendum in which each Iranian casts a single equal vote for a new #Iran.
What is critical and non-negotiable is the substance of the future state - it must be secular and democratic, and designed to safeguard each citizen’s #HumanRights. What is less important is the form of the future state - whether it is a constitutional monarchy or a republic.
