I'm disappointed at the High Court decision (…), but hopeful the case is a stepping stone towards realisation of #HumanRights for people with DS. Image
I hope it will help change the way parents are spoken to, and supported to make their decisions in pregnancy.

Around 90% of parents in the UK choose not to have their baby if they discover that he/she has Downs syndrome.
We don't need a legal change to stop parents being offered information/advice that is rooted in, or framed by, ignorance & prejudice.

The way in which people are informed/supported right now is not ok & health services need to shift

1. Yesterday, the UN Secretary-General warned: "We face the greatest cascade of crises in our lifetime."

World leaders gathered at the U.N. General Assembly, where the climate crisis and other 'Great Divides' are on the agenda.

2. Unlike just five or ten years ago, it's now only the odd one out who is not alarmed about the climate crisis.

Especially the younger generation doesn't need to be convinced of the seriousness of our global challenges.

#youth #schoolstrike…

3. Being alarmed doesn't always lead to concrete action.

Nobody can ignore the daily news about extreme weather disasters or the latest scientific report about the climate crisis.

But our leaders still don't treat the new reality as a crisis.

When we talk about #WhiteSupremacy being systemic, this is what we mean (A THREAD🧵):
The issues at our border didn’t end when Trump’s inhumane “#FamilySeparation” policies ended.
The racism and classism against people from countries like #Haiti didn’t magically disappear when President Biden took office.

1/5 🚨 Today is European day against #Islamophobia!

Many Muslims are subject to discrimination, oppression & abuse because of anti-terrorist & surveillance policies in Europe, disproportionately targeting them as a threat to security.
2/5 ❌ The EU's 2020 Counter-Terrorism Agenda uses a flawed narrative that more surveillance is needed to guarantee security. This will only increase the over-policing of Muslims through data-sharing & biometric mass surveillance.
3/5 ➡️Read @ENAREurope's report about the impact of counter-terrorism law and policy on racialised groups in Europe:…

📣 Instead, the EU should emphasise and detail measures to support & promote the protection of #HumanRights, #Equality & #RuleOfLaw.

The @europeancommission just announced it will work on a proposal for an EU ban on products made with #forcedlabour. This is a historic announcement - how did we get here? A thread 👇(1/9)
Over a decade ago, the @EUparliament called for such a ban. It never went anywhere. As the #BizHumanRights discipline continued to develop, the focus was on creating obligations for companies to conduct due diligence to guarantee #humanrights and environmental protection (2/9).
Last year, when the EP negotiated the due diligence law in INTA, I tabled an amendment calling for an import ban on products linked to severe human rights violations like forced labour.This would be complementary to the law, to block such products coming to the single market(3/9)

It is a cruel jest to say to people who have suffered inhumane treatment for centuries to unite with those who have caused a lot of pain

We give each other a chance when both sides deserve it

As someone who opposes Islamophobia, why should I vote strategically for a party that drafted a dog-whistle bill around it or that voted for it, over the NDP who didn't?

#Islamophobia #Elxn44 #cdnpoli
As someone who supports labour organizing, why would I vote strategically for a party who doesn't want to strengthen labour laws to support workers during strikes and lockouts, when the NDP does?

#canlab #strike #Elxn44
As someone who wants trade deals that are good for Canada and Canadian workers and don't contain harmful ISDs and respect our sovereignty, why would I vote strategically for any party who undermines that? #trade #cdnecon #Elxn2021

@GlobalFund 2021 #ResultsReport: A reader’s guide

#COVID19 is the headline, but there is a lot more to talk about, especially with the #7thReplenishment coming up.…
a 🧵...
#TB is front and center, because it was worst hit by #COVID19. Resources in pulmonary health diverted from TB towards Covid19 – doctors, beds, GeneXpert machines and cartridges – on top of everything else.
#HIV was impacted too, especially #prevention and #testing. #Malaria fared better, probably in part because countries with endemic malaria were hit by #COVID19 latter, though testing did drop.

Boerderijen die al generaties een erfgoed vertegenwoordigen..

Vaders, moeders, opa's, oma's, kinderen, kleinkinderen en achterkleinkinderen....

Men mag mij de toegang tot van alles ontzeggen! Maar iemands thuis.... daar blijf je vanaf!
Dutch government aims to dispossess farmers land...

Farms that have represented a heritage for generations..

Fathers, mothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren....

I can be denied access to anything! But stay away of peoples homes!
Farmers, according to the Dutch government, are reluctant to fulfill the requirements needed due to the nitrogen crisis...

And the statement is;

If you do not listen,.... We will take away your land. If needed, disowning by force of law....

In a 2013 court case Pathology vs Myriad Genetics, Inc, in the US,
the Supreme Court ruled that human #DNA could not be patented because it was "a product of nature".


THREAD: #news
2/ at the end of the decision, the Supreme Court ruled that if a human genome is modified by #mRNA vaxcines (which are currently in use), then the genome CAN BE PATENTED.

This means that everyone who has received the vaxcine is now technically "patented" & something that...
3/ is patented is "proprietary" & will be included in the definition of "transhumans".

People who are legally identified as 'transhuman' do not have access to human rights or rights granted by the state.

This is because they are not classified as 100% biological or human.

I think that I have just experienced something which I suspect many have already.

In simple terms, people hiding the fact that they have been exposed to those with confirmed #Coronavirus and have been ill themselves...
2. #COVID19 #Vaccinations #AntiVax #Morality

In other words, they wish to express their "libertarian" selves, but your views are secondary..

...perhaps even your health is secondary to their own "free" views?

Some openly declare they are anti-vaxxers. The stock phrase is that they are now #freethinkers...

You remember that shock?

That jarring feeling when someone lies to put you or others in the frame for their wrongdoing

That shock is a survival instinct

It is recognising a break in the social contract
It is realising that no place is now safe, unless your supporters are more influential than theirs

It is needing effective checks and balances to backfill for that lack of integrity

It is hoping, depending on how vulnerable you are, that the liar isn’t a sadist

#COVID19: The reaction of doctors and fake scientists to vaccine adverse effects (and eventual deaths) is worth deploring and taking to courts. They are helping in this #Genocide and most heinous #HumanRights violations of humanity so far. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 @_Perry4Law Image
#COVID19: With data of infections, hospitalisations and deaths despite vaccination, it would be a legal obligation to revoke all permissions of emergency use of vaccines. Ignoring these conditions and deaths is criminal negligence…. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75

The thinly veiled costs of age verification.

Guilt until innocence proven

Universal dependence on supplier security, data protection, downstream supplier due diligence

Ability to resist state data demands

Ethics of master ID store, verification tools, monitoring provider
With the constant cloud of this at the far end of the threat assessment, with all of the stops between here and that extreme
We are at this point on the trust and totalitarian control continuum.

Not the ideal backdrop for a conversation about finger, eye, face, palm, DNA printing kids

And the rest of us, to make sure we are not too young to surf porn, research something too ‘woke’, or plan a protest

This is my wish list for Australia’s future,
In no particular order.
1) lower voting age to 16. If you’re old enough to learn to drive, you’re old enough to vote. I trust the younger generation to make good decisions.
2) free public University and #TAFE education
We were at our best when our dreams and aspirations could become a reality. Ending free tertiary education marked the point in history when we started going backwards.
3) A total ban on political donations. Much of the weakening of our democracy is due to the influence of
donations. Publicly funded elections doesn’t need to cost the earth. Let’s say, theoretically, that each major party was allowed a million per state for electioneering, minor parties half a million, and micro parties 10 thousand.
Guaranteed reduced advertising, but the election

Here is my second thread on #COVID19, #ForcedVaccinations, #HumanRights violations and other aspects. Let us start it on a lighter note but the message is clear and pure truth as we are not living our lives due to fear. Go out and enjoy your lives today. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 Image
I would also like to know more about and meet my two anonymous followers as they have been patiently reading my tweets without any interference and disruption. I appreciate your commitment and let us have a word now friends. DM me if you are introvert. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 Image
Hi @jack and @TwitterSupport. I am unable to see my 2 followers and therefore I cannot interact with them and share my views and learn theirs. Is this a flaw or feature or both? I hope you would help me in communicating with them by making them public. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 Image

The messy layers of ethics:

Brainwashing the population to do what’s best for them


Brainwashing the population to do what’s best for a wealthiest few, on premise their wealth will trickle down


Brainwashing as a technique - yes / no / sometimes?
Vs the tech and technical security stack:

Does the brainwashing meet requirements? Is it performing as designed? What are functional and performance limitations?

Can it be compromised? Monitoring? Perimeter? Supply chain? Network, OS, buckets, connections, endpoints?
So many lenses, so little time, while people are dying. No wonder folk say:

“£@<€ it! We’ll suck it and see. Excise the #GRC grit from our righteous machines!”

Crises are different. Suck it and see, with scrupulous note taking to learn lessons, is how it should be

Do you remember #Janabi? Abir Al Janabi. A 14-year-old #Iraqi girl. In 2006, Janabi's father stopped sending Janabi to school in fear of the #US Army's focus on his daughter. The Army who was establihing "#democracy" and "#human rights" in Iraq. 1/32
Janabi used to stay at home, spending her days of adolescence playing with her younger siblings.
The U.S. military's security checkpoint was located just 200 meters from Janabi's house. One day, a #USsoldier notices Janabi. And Janabi and her family were doomed right then. 2/32
For a few days at first, the #soldiers repeatedly came to Janabi's house in the name of search and made ugly gestures towards her. One day the four #armies decided that today they would be the day to enjoy Jamabai and kill some #Muslims. 3/32
