Jonathan D. Chang’s portrait (below, left) of Vicha Ratanapakdee, 84, killed on the streets of #SanFrancisco has became a symbol on #socialmedia in the fight vs anti-Asian violence in the US. Join me, the Thai-American community & others for #JusticeForVicha #VichaRatanapakdee
Originally from #Thailand, #VichaRatanapakdee 🙏moved to #SanFrancisco to help care for his grandkids. After finishing his daily routine of prepping his grandsons for their day, he was on his usual morning walk when he was violently shoved & kicked. #RIP thaienquirer.com/23795/opinion-…
“Disgusted, angry & sad”: L.A. artist Jonathan D. Chang says about killing of Vicha Ratanapakdee in #SF.

Indeed. One more unprovoked attack against Asian Americans, many elderly.

(PLEASE RETWEET) On January 15, 2021 6:30AM, an unidentified man broke into my parent's restaurant, The Crew (in Sunset District, SF) and stole everything valuable to us. A simple retweet could potentially help identify this man and give justice to my parents. (1/12) ImageImageImage
The burglar stole numerous valuables and property, amounting to over $10,000 in value as well as all of our family's legal and personal documents. Some of these items include proof of our legal status, social security cards, banking information, usernames and passwords and (2/12)
Addresses. This burglary DEVASTATED us because compared to the electronics and cash, the stolen personal and legal documentation needed for our daily lives, work and restaurant are irreplaceable. -- (3/12)

Taking a break from the #CapitolSiege to ask everyone a question I ponder ALL the time: Which urban neighborhoods bordering major waterfronts offer safe *pedestrian* access to the actual WATER—and preferably to long linear parks offering > 1000’/300m of continuous water access?
I've spent MANY hours looking at Google Maps for ways to walk to the river from residential neighborhoods in cities all over the U.S. Access is TERRIBLE. I'm sooo envious of #Vancouver, BC. It's frustrating how cut off we are by seawalls, railroads, industry, private homes... /2
Hood River is an incredible town, and it’s the undisputed windsurfing capital of Earth. But, just like ALL of Oregon’s Columbia River towns, I-84 completely severs all possible pedestrian connections between residential areas and the river itself. /3

The U.S. has ~300 cities whose population exceeds 100K. Most of them have "buffered" (by PAINT: 0 protection) bike lanes, with the (car) #parking lane along the curb. SWITCH the bike & parked car lane, and you'd have traffic-calming and a MUCH safer #cycling experience. @PBOTinfo
I cannot stand seeing streets that are "improved" for "cyclists" by putting a wide bike lane *between* parked and moving cars. #Portland's N Denver Ave is a classic example. SWITCH the bike lane & car #parking lane; it solves many issues simultaneously! /2
Biking between the curb and parked cars means that there's almost *zero* car movement around you, outside of intersections. Door-zone biking is nearly eliminated--and if a passenger door does open, you're not thrown into car traffic. /3

Biological warfare, or “germ warfare,” is the “use of biological toxins or infectious agents (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) with the intent to kill or incapacitate humans.” Historically, the US’ involvement in bacterial weaponry has been driven by competition and paranoia.
In 1942, President Roosevelt signed into action the first biological warfare program; backed by the National Academy of Sciences
A government body -- the War Research Service (WRS) -- was created to oversee these activities, and George W Merck (of the #Merck Pharmaceutical Company) was appointed to leadership.

Wow... @nytimes has gotten way ahead of their skis here!

nytimes.com/2020/09/13/us/…
NYT: Kamala Harris’ parents belonged to a study group that was “the most foundational institution in the Black Power movement,” along with “Huey Newton — the future co-founder of the Black Panther Party.”

Huey saw Mao as a hero. He visited China in 1971, met Premier Zhou Enlai.
The “Maoist Internationalist Ministry of Prisons” — which pushes #BlackPanther-style Maoist Revolution, runs a Tor site, & accepts Bitcoin — began publishing a newsletter from a #SanFrancisco PO Box in 2007. It’s sent to prisons everywhere.

How’d #SanFran DA #Kamala not know?

This weekend, Trump applauded his supporters, who hurled racial slurs at children, intimidated voters outside polling stations + in some cases, opened fire on counter-protesters, as police stood by + violently attacked anti-racists demonstrators. A thread. itsgoingdown.org/trump-applauds…
As Trump's numbers tank, he has embraced the only path left to him to stay in power: stealing the election. With Trump making public his plans, his base this weekend hit the streets + ratcheted up the level of violence. axios.com/trump-claim-el…
For months there has been an escalation on the far-Right - with militias and Boogaloo groups plotting to even kidnap and murder Democratic officials. npr.org/2020/10/08/921…

#TAX! Here's Davos' #WorldEconomicForum again, suggesting that we should tax meat eaters... 'like smokers' ?!?! What a #GreatReset that'll be! 😬

The idea is also spread by C. Figueres, a main driving force behind the Paris climate agreement & member of the Board of.... #WRI 🤔 The meat tax idea is further amplified by #EAT member Springmann who wrote a specific study on it: journals.plos.org/plosone/articl…

A #GreenNewDeal-linked plan of New York’s (#NYC) City Council (& mayor Bill #deBlasio) to halve the red meat supply in municipal buildings & phase out processed meats in schools & hospitals by 2030.

30mila dollari per rimettere a posto 2 denti.

Questo sì che si chiama crowdfunding!
Sono stati raccolti per Philip Anderson, rimasto senza due incisivi sabato scorso.
Ma perché parliamo di lui?
Perché sono 2 giorni che @francescatotolo ci chiama in causa, >
#Thread lungo [1/22]
[2/22] dopo aver spulciato come fa spesso la nostra timeline, per un RT precedente la manifestazione di sabato 17 ottobre a San Francisco nella quale l'organizzatore, Philip Anderson, ha preso un pugno dagli antifascisti e perso due denti. >
#19ottobre #TeamSaveAmerica #Thread
[3/22] E dov'è il problema nel RT della locandina di una manifestazione anti-nazi?
Boh.
Insomma si stava per passare oltre quando s'è pensato: e raccontiamo cosa è successo sabato a San Francisco e chi è il nuovo beniamino di Totolo, il "conservatore" Philip Anderson >

Philip Anderson, a free speech rally leader, punched by counter protester and pushed back into barricaded area at UN Plaza in SF. Rally has not started yet. #ProudBoys #SanFrancisco
Right wing free speech rally didn’t last long. Toothless Anderson and crew escorted away, protesters take to streets and march to Twitter HQ.
Outlets looking to use this video or photo of Philip should contact carlin@tmx.news for licensing

On #ThisWeekInFascism, we look at a week of hardcore misinformation. From trying to paint Boogaloo Boys as anarchists to grifters branding a security guard an antifascist. Plus doxxes, prisoner updates + calls to action in #Boston + #SanFrancisco. itsgoingdown.org/this-week-in-f…
ICYMI: Here's our tweet thread on the far-Right #Michigan plot to kidnap and execute the Governor because some far-Right Boogaloo Boys and militia members were angry over the State's response to the #COVID19 pandemic.
Here's our thread on the Right and Fox News attempting to brand a far-Right Libertarian/AnCap as a left-wing anarchist.

Vielerorts steigen d. Kosten für #Wohnen. Die Forderung nach #leistbaren Wohnen ist eine nachvollziehbare polit. Forderung. Verschieden Instrumente stehen zur Zielerreichung zur Verfügung. Viele Städte (uA #Berlin #SanFrancisco, #Wien) haben eine (teilweise) #Mietkontrolle 1/n
D.h es gibt in diesen Städten #Höchstmieten, #Mietendeckel #Mietobergrenzen, ... gleiche/ähnliche Konzepte. Ich möchte hier kurz empirische Evidenz diskutieren, die zeigt, dass diese #Mietkontrollen kein adäquates Mittel sind, sondern wahrscheinlich sogar kontraproduktiv. 2/n
Vorab diese Politikmaßnahme ist nicht neu & wurde von ÖkonomInnen theoretisch ausführlich behandelt. Hier etwa eine Schrift aus dem Jahr 1981. Mit Beiträgen uA. von #MiltonFriedman, #GeorgeStigler 3/n fraserinstitute.org/sites/default/…

If you woke up this morning and thought you were on Mars instead of the Bay Area, you’re definitely not alone. 

Smoke from the #CaliforniaFires has cast an orange glow over #SanFrancisco and the #EastBay.
So, what’s going on?

According to @ggweather meteorologist Jan Null, winds are pushing smoke from the north, where multiple wildfires are raging, to the south and into the Bay Area.

Here’s some satellite footage of what the smoke looks like over the West Coast:
