Our SI studies "new contentious politics": A #double #transformation of contemporary protest arenas, marked by (1) new issues & claims from the left to the far-right as well as (2) hybrid organisational forms & a close interaction between protest and electoral politics. 🪧 (2/11)
In "Civil Society, Cleavage Structures, and Democracy in Germany", E. #Grande studies the importance of new political #cleavages for understanding protest. Crucially, he points to the ambivalent relationship between civil society & #democracy.

A working 🧵 to track #inflation-related #protests around the world

Some mvmts are learning from others (Canada-Dutch-Italy-Germany), and some are more extreme than others (Sri Lanka vs. Peru).

1. Andy Rootsey and the superb Hannah Thomas of @2HareCourt have secured another Not Guilty verdict for Human Rights campaigner Debbie Hicks @StroudRedShed.

This is the 2nd acquittal obtained in a series of 3 trials she has faced for protesting during periods of UK lockdown.
2. On the 6th March 2021 Debbie had been politically campaigning in the Richmond area ahead of the London Mayoral elections collecting nomination signatures.

Police ordered her to leave the area and go home.
3. She did not leave and later began to address members of the public via a megaphone protesting that her being forced to leave was an attack upon her right to campaign.

🚨 NEW: An @allthecitizens investigation has found £5m worth of UK govt contracts with a company used by US police to disperse #BLM protests.

This is #protest recognition tech: the scariest #AI you've never heard of. Dr Eleanor Drage @TheGoodRobot1 @CambridgeGender explains all.
Social media monitoring companies, like Geofeedia and Dataminr, have been known to partner with police in the US, using their tech to surveil protestors and feed real-time information based on social media activity back to law enforcement.…
Dataminr, a company which received early investment from the CIA, is an AI company that is granted full access to Twitter's content stream, known as the 'fire-hose', allowing it to scan every single public tweet.…

Well there's some very interesting & innovative attempts to clarify Priti Patel's new laws around #protest in the 'Noise-related provisions: Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Act 2022 #factsheet'.

The Act allows police to place conditions on public processions, public assemblies & one-person protests where it is reasonably believed that the noise they generated "may result in serious disruption to the activities of an organisation carried on in the vicinity...
...or have a significant impact on people in the vicinity of the protest."

Priti Patel also "has a power, by regulations, to further define the meaning of 'serious disruption' & provide further clarity to police in the use of these powers."

Clear as mud. ImageImage

Before chaos unfolded yesterday, I came across an after-school #protest by students, teachers and parents of Ananda Balika, Vidyalaya, Pitakotte.
The teachers and students, some soaked by rain, were chanting slogans in unison. This is the sort of political education we need.
Because our education is partially responsible for this country’s lack of political maturity. We are taught to follow. Dissent is always discouraged. If we are taught from a young age the political history of this country, voicing opinions, equity and class and accountability,
We might not elect crooks to rule over us. We might not go to sleep after each election, letting gov. function without the people’s oversight. We may just build a socio-political system that is accountable and a politically-conscious general public.

To mark the #InternationalWorkingWomensDay2022 on March 8, as in dozens of other cities, night marches are held in #Istanbul to #protest #violence against #women and the decline of #womensrights. Like every year in #Istanbul, #women gather for this at the #Taksim Square. Image
This year, however, no permission was granted for the action, wherefore the #Turkish #police started to take preventive "measures" since yesterday, and installed #police barricades at many points of the large square. Image
While footage in #Taksim revealed the #Turkish government's pure fear of the #women's marches, a contradictory picture was revealed behind the blockades on the #Istiklal Street where #police was handing out #flowers to the #women. Image

1) Don’t blockade, advocate.

That’s the thought that stayed with me throughout the Ottawa protest and occupation. If all the energy that went in to building a well-supplied encampment within the city of Ottawa had been harnessed, nurtured, and steered towards structuring their
2) activism and advocacy into clear and concise messages, actions and proposals, there are better than even odds that the government of Canada would have been forced to develop a different strategy than enacting the Emergencies Act.
3) That’s not to say I agree with the occupation of Canada’s capital. Nor do I feel you grow support for your cause by creating intolerable conditions for people and businesses to live and operate in the spaces you occupy. While I am very much a supporter of legal protests and

White feminist “historians” and “abortion experts” have never heard of mass non-violent resistance. That must be why they’ve all capitulated.

The Black struggle in America, freedom fights around the world … are not real to them. 🧵 1/
They snarkily tweet that 6 is greater than 3. Oh, even if John Roberts is pressured, 5 is greater than 4.

Imagine the unmitigated gall to be joking about this. The complete shamelessness.

Those fighting to save Roe don’t know basic arithmetic. That’s your joke? 2/
And you bring your savior nonsense to the chat.

• We’ll ship abortion pills!
• Look at me; I’m taking an abortion pill in public even though I’m not pregnant!
• It’s safer than Tylenol!
• We’ll mail abortion pills to Texan women!

Do you even KNOW a Texan woman?

Thank you to all the peers who are showing great commitment & integrity as they stay late to knock back some of the disturbing provisions in the #PolicingBill, despite govt attempts to prevent scrutiny by scheduling.

This is no way to run a democracy. But the govt knows that.
This image just shows the commitment and integrity of many members of our unelected House.

Scandalous that peers should be put in this position on some of the most important rights in any democracy.
Just proving the point. This just shouldn’t be happening. Every unscrupulous card being played by the government to ram through their #PolicingBill.

The last day of Report for the #PolicingBill is well underway. We'll be tweeting here all night.
The first group has been covered. We're now on to the second group, which is about hunting with dogs. It includes issues such as hare coursing.

Part 3 will probably start in a couple of hours. This is a HUGE Bill, and Part 3 is right at the end.
Like @GreenJennyJones, we're settling in for a long night. Unlike Peers, we're at home instead of bobbing up and down to debate with the Minister. Huge thanks to all the Peers who stay to vote on these vital issues.

The Govt's draconian Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill is authoritarian, antidemocratic, anti-free speech, & anti-British.

It is an insult to all the brave people who gave their lives in WWII to protect our freedoms.

It MUST be resisted.

Former Director of Policy for PM David Cameron, Camilla Cavendish, today stated that Britain is "sleepwalking into a police state."

She said that MPs claiming facemasks "is an imposition on civil liberties, have waved through these provisions" effectively criminalising protest.
Since the 296 page #PoliceBill passed through the House of Commons, Priti Patel has brought in an ADDITIONAL 18 pages at the last second (effectively an additional Bill) which has had ZERO scrutiny from MPs, & which bring in further draconian provisions.

Some of the @LetsStopC9 team attended the very important #protest to bring the attention of the House of Lords to the racist #NABB. Many powerful speeches were shared and we have been inspired!

Our next steps as @LetsStopC9 will be to increase collaboration with other groups who share our goal - to stop the #NationalityAndBordersBill we are thankful to Sam from @WritersofColour for connecting us
We will continue to raise awareness around the #NationalityAndBordersBill and encourage people to challenge it, and will uplift the voices of other organisations working to fight it

Hamid Khurasani deleted his old tweet&now wrote:
"In a misunderstanding that led to the shooting, one person was killed in Kuraba village of Unaba district.
The #IEA officials have arrested several suspects in this case& promised to investigate the issue."
