.@tracybeanz We are sharing the following from a comment on another thread:

While everyone is under the "stay home, stay safe" order, #Washington #GovernorJayInslee on March 31 signed the first US state law that implements use of facial recognition technology on street corners.
.@threadreaderapp unroll. Author of bill cites #lawenforcement purposes. Police not in favor of system; same w/ many citizens. But due to these "orders", we are not able to protest unconstitutional bills and laws. Just like citizens in Hong Kong, we are on virtual house arrest.
So who was the biggest lobbier of this bill? You guessed it! Microsoft. Who owned Microsoft? Bill Gates, who has been a public figure in the whole coronavirus issue.

The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.

Weil so viele Menschen zu @12062020olympia laut werden, viel Bestärkung aber auch Kritik im Raum steht:
Ein #Olympia-Thread. ⬇️
1 I In Zeiten wo soo viele Leute Lust auf Politik haben, auf die Straße gehen, sich organisieren und Zukünfte gestalten wollen - die Regierung aber regelrecht stagniert, wollen wir neue Räume schaffen, für Menschen, Inhalte, Wissenschaft und große Visionen. Daher Olympia.
2 I Warum Crowdfunding? Für ein Townhall in nie da gewesener Größe braucht es einen Raum, der groß genug und infrastrukturell gut ausgestattet ist. Und weil man sich frei machen möchte von Sponsoring etc., weil das ganze eben non-Profit sein soll, läuft dazu ein Crowdfunding.
