People ask what the point of the #RevokeArticle50 petition is. I don't think any of us are naive enough to think it will magically stop Brexit. BUT...
1. It's an opportunity to register dissent with the current state of things, and registering dissent is fundamental to a democracy. Which I'm not even sure we have any more, given all the underhand background murk, but here's a crack at it.
2. It's a fuck you to the trotted out narrative that May is simply acting on 'the will of the people'. It's putting names to #NotInMyName. It's encouraging citizens to stand up and be heard.

Thread: Had to explain to someone why neutering a cat before they breed is ethical and outweighs the other possible end result of letting them repeatedly breed, then watching authorities horrifically poison all with strychnine. 🙈 and people wonder why I prefer animals.
I’m lucky. Where I live, thanks to a few hard workers, the cat population is pretty much controlled. But that’s thanks to hard work and effort of people that care. It doesn’t just happen. Others take that for granted.
Red Sea resorts like Hurghada, Sharm and Dahab are over run with cats and there’s consistent poisoning. There’s no change. It’s horrific to watch. It’s dangerous to humans and it’s so unnecessary. El Gouna is a humane, ethical city and long may that continue.

Weet u waar ik nou zo moe van wordt? Van dat groepje knorrige witte mannen (Telgraaf, Elsevier) die uit naam van een raar soort cultuurchristendom menen de Nederlandse cultuur te moeten verdedigen. Ze komen op voor Kerst en Pasen tegen - ja, tegen wat eigenlijk? (1)
Uit alles blijkt echter dat deze knorrige mannetjes weinig tot niks van Kerst en Pasen begrepen hebben. Ze geloven er zelf ook niet in, want daar zijn ze te rationeel voor (vinden ze zelf). Ze verdedigen dus iets waar ze zelf niet in geloven. (2)
Het punt is natuurlijk dat ze deze christelijke symbolen in de arm nemen om hun anti-immigratie standpunten te kunnen ventileren. Maar #NotInMyName. Christenen blijven echt Pasen en Pinksteren wel vieren ook als het geen officiële feestdag meer is. (3)

"You are in deep sleep, a calm morning in a serene village.. GOONS flashing SWORDS enter your compound"

Oh, woke up? That’s what happened in a GouShala near MLR.

Goons took away one Cow, ran away seeing villagers, threatening to come back to take away d rest!

"Villagers Started FAST UNTO DEATH from Today"

Since the authorities or the Govt took no action, villagers have no choice, but to protest to save more cows!

If we are quiet, vote bank politicians dont care. Let's raise to support the cause.

"Let's Support Villagers on Hunger Strike to save Gous"

Threatening villagers is first step. Then they'll steal more cows which are backbone of rural economy... happening in many villages!

Case has been lodged, but no action yet by authorities or K'taka Govt

It's #WorldKindnessDay
@nickynoo007 made the brilliant suggestion to #KillBrexitWithKindness
Here's my *stab*: thank you #Brexit for honing my power point skills. In gratitude, I'm posting my top-20 most popular anti-#Brexit/#StopBrexit memes (in no particular order).
1. One of the more recent ones on @DavidDavisMP hypocrisy over his failure to release the Brexit Impact Reports or sector studies or whatever they are, which he testified existed in "excruciating detail"
Release the #BrexitImpactReports #StopBrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
2. Never has this one on the #Tory Kakistocracy seemed more relevant with @michaelgove throwing #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe under a bus on #Marr to throw a political lifeline to his dangerously incompetent buddy @BorisJohnson
