Senior Advocate Gopal Sankaranarayan making submissions regarding an application, says that on June 10 the GOI had released a list of trains for #migrant which shall be paid for by the migrant workers.
SG: I don’t have a copy of this.

Bench: What application is this? What is your prayer?

Sankaranarayan: I gave you a copy of the application Mr. Solicitor, even an email.

SG: Nice way of speaking. Snapping back like this.
Sankaranarayan says that Migrants are having to pay for the fare of migrant workers.

SG: Who says?

Sankaranarayan: We are working on the ground.

Bench: Our order was very clear. We’ll hear it in July. The day on which it was listed.

#COVID spreads through human-to-human transmission, so #migrants are an important vector. In the absence of adequate covid tests in LMICs, can we predict sub-national COVID spread, or identify likely hotspots using data on migration?

Short answer: Yes.
yrise.yale.edu/using-migratio…
Data on airport returnees predict subsequent quarantines & #COVID19 distress calls across districts in #Bangladesh. Data on migration permits predict confirmed cases in #Philippines municipalities and Bangladeshi sub-districts.
Beyond the validation using public health data, our recent phone surveys across Bangladesh helps to ground-truth this approach:
Living in communities with recent #migrant returnees triples the odds (!) of reporting #COVID symptoms. This is the single largest risk factor.

#Slavery was America’s original sin, but it was also ours in Europe. After all it was the Portuguese, Brits, French, Spaniards, Dutch, Danes, and the occasional Norwegian who drove the #slavetrade. Less obviously barbaric, but far bigger in scale was Europe’s #Colonialism ...
This was considered respectable well within living memory. Top them up with centuries of #Antisemitism , a rising #Islamophobia and endemic #racism against the #Roma and it's not good enough for us in Europe to be smug about the upheaval in the US, but let's look in the mirror!
Talk to the #Congolese in #Belgium, the #Syrians in #Germany, the #Pakistanis in the #UK, the #Somalis in #Norway, the #Afghans in #Sweden, the #Chinese in #Italy what their daily experience of life in Europe is like. Full of a thousand humiliations, comes the honest answer.

SC Bench headed by J. Ashok Bhushan is hearing the suo motu case pertaining to the plight of migrant workers across the country, who have found themselves in dire straits due to the Coronavirus induced lockdown.

Last week, a slew of interim directions were passed by Top Court.
Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta informs the Bench that they have filed their affidavit yesterday.

“We have also answered the query that you incorporated in the last Order.”
SG states that in accordance with guidelines, Indian Railways operated 4228 trains till 3rd June.

SG is now taking the Bench through statistical data - positive stats for number of trains that have operated and number of migrants who have been transported.

I've taught pre-K to college & wrote my PhD dissertation on #racism. All research shows Ms Newsome is 100% correct: if your kids are old enough to talk, they're old enough to talk about racism. <thread>

THREAD. A week ago I wrote this on the contribution that #migrants and #refugees make to the response to #coronavirus. Since then I have been collecting information on HOW this happens in different countries to learn for the future.

Whilst looking at bots tweeting links to ZeroHedge, we encountered the recently awakened bilingual newsbots @rotepille (German for "Red Pill".) #ThursdayThoughts

cc: @ZellaQuixote
ZeroHedge searches in general continue to get bottier; the last 10 days worth of tweets appear to be 9.8%, up from 7.3% in mid-February. @rotepille is at least the 5th newly-made or reawakened bot to start pushing ZeroHedge since @zerohedge's suspension.
In what may or may not have been a reaction to the 2018 midterms, @rotepille went silent from Nov 9, 2018 to Feb 28, 2020. Although its early tweets were sent via "Mobile Web (M2)" rather than a custom app, we nonetheless believe they were automated due to the rigid schedule.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

#US @CBP lied about deploying #teargas because rocks were thrown and didn't deploy on those trying to cross border. @CBP on the top of the hill shooting rubber bullets at #migrants, medics and photographers and getting ready to throw #teargas. Filmed through whole in fence
You can see how far away @CBPSanDiego is from the wall and not even close to proximity of a hurled rock, which none were thrown. Shortly after they deployed #teargas on a group of photographers +100ft from the fence
@CBP deploying #teargas at #migrants at the #BorderWall. They put out a statement saying they didn't do so and they shot only at those throwing rocks. You don't see rocks thrown and can see they are way up high on a hill where rocks couldn't reach if they wanted. Fire starts

Mexicans are headed to the polls today to elect a new President... #AMLO is the favorite, many have called him #Mexico’s answer to @realDonaldTrump analysts say that might not be true and voters think he’ll stick up to #Trump who say their current President #Nieto never did

Gomez-Cruces says he watched all 3 debates and one was more disappointing than the next. One debate: candidate ‘El Bronco’ says - “we need to cut off the hand of anyone who steals in the public service.” The moderator asks “literally?” ‘El Bronco’ replies “literally.”
