While we wait for #HELSINKI2018 to finish, here's a couple of remarks inspired by the #TrumpPutin meeting.
1. Finland is not a neutral country. We chose our side when we joined European Union in 1995. Finland chose to be on the side of #humanrights, #democracy, #ruleoflaw and multilateral world order. Finnish foreign policy is based on promoting and defending these values.
2. Women's rights are human rights. We believe the world would be a better place for everyone if #WomensRights and girls' rights would be recognised and respected all around the world.

Trump said he would raise the subject of 12 RU indicted for alleged hacking during the 2016 US Elex but "hadn't thought" about asking for their extradition.🙄🙄🙄

Trump said that "nothing bad" & "maybe some good" would come out of the encounter with Putin.

Thread: Some rare good immigration news came today. Last yr, as part of a deal to get Iraq off the list of countries in Muslim Ban 1.0, ICE began rounding up 100s of Iraqi nationals who had old, unexecuted deportation orders—nearly all of whom came as refugees. #NashvilleKurds /1
Nashville is home to the largest population of Kurds outside of #Kurdistan. At least 12 and as many as 20 #NashvilleKurds were targeted. amp.tennessean.com/amp/379582001 ICE sought to detain these men in far-flung, for-profit prisons and deport them without hearing to torture/death /2
But @ACLUofMichigan @mjschlanger @CivilRightsCH Code Legal, and partners across the country stepped up and filed class-action habeas litigation that successfully halted these deportations, given people time to find lawyers and file for fear-based protection, and seek bonds /3

Each pick on Trump’s shortlist of potential nominees earned a spot based on the extremist political agenda they will bring to our highest court. time.com/5330782/donald…
We need a justice on the Supreme Court who understands the Constitution protects all of us, not just the wealthy and powerful.
We need a justice who makes rulings based on the #RuleofLaw, not by following a political agenda.

The American people really do need grasp again that “We The People,” are the power. It is us that limit the federal government power. We are the principal power holders, and we loan that power to legislators, the president and federal judges. The constitution protects people....
not presidents, it is indeed to protect us from possible despots. The Constitution is supreme, that’s why it has been amended so little, regardless of the hundreds of amendment proposals. But to protect us as a people was the need of the #RuleOfLaw. The Constitutional supremacy
Embodies equal justice under law. Unfortunately it is not always practiced. To be patriotic to me means upholding the Constitution where all Americans are treated the same, regardless of race, gender, income, religion, sexuality or party affiliation. To try and oppress people is

Just finished reading the Polish government’s non-paper on “judiciary regulations” revealed and critically analysed by @oko_press last Friday: oko.press/praworzadnosc-…

Thread (possibly long) to follow

#Poland #RuleofLaw #Article7
2/ My diagnosis in a nutshell: so-called "non-paper" is as ridiculously misleading as so-called “white paper” on so-called “reform” of Polish judiciary from last March



#TakingUsForFools (version 2.0)
3/ The silver lining: @TimmermansEU did not fall for so-called “changes” & “concessions” or "compromises" offered by Polish authorities which can be *at best* described as cosmetic or meaningless

They seem to think suspects should direct the actions of law enforcement. I am old enough to remember when the #GOP said it would #BackTheBlue and suspects got their day in court, but weren't allowed to obstruct the cops chasing them. /2
