Speaking of reparative, we’re going to be seeking to define “reparative housing plan” for Black people in California as part of recommendations that go to the State Reparations Task Force.

(Trust me YIMBY ain’t gonna like it.) #SelfDetermination /1
The point I emphasize in every reparations convo on housing don’t just think a/b the cash: regulations can be far more widespread & quickly implemented.

As an example even if you gave every Blk person $250,000 for down payment on a house: in Crenshaw the homes now go for $1M. /2
To be clear we’ll take & need 💵…but even w/it Black n’hoods would remain inaccessible & vulnerable to displacement.

Tearing down barriers to stable Black housing & communities, combat housing discrimination, requires ADVANTAGING Blk ppl (above non-Blks) & over corporations. /3

#Russia is committing an act of aggression. This is what the UN was created for in 1945 after WWII, to react against together: the collective security system. All states now have the right to use military force against Russia under the right to collective self defense of #Ukraine
But they don't just have the "right" to do so, they have the duty. The UN was made for this. Its Preamble starts with vowing that this is what they would stand against together. Now all those 193 UN states (- 1, #Russia) should put their military where their mouth is. #Ukraine Image
The UN 1974 "Definition of Aggression" stipulated that "no territorial acquisition resulting from aggression is or shall be recognized as lawful". Yet: Crimea in 2014 and now this. If all states would stand together against aggression #Russia wouldn't dare or be able to do this.

1️⃣ Fox host calls for 'kill shot' on Fauci… via @MV_Standard @JesseBWatters 👍🏼😎👑 #KillShot words plucked out of a few paragraphs. Thank @MV_Standard -mostly fair…
2️⃣ 👍🏼👍🏼 @FoxNews & @JesseBWatters and observers who were there deny “kill shot” actually means “kill” when talking in a conference to aspiring young journalists. It’s part of doing an aggressive interview for Press/TV/Media. He said Film it! Why would a sniper make a movie 🎥? Image
@JesseBWatters entire speech left out of many #MSM outlets. Speaks for itself. “Make Sure it’s Legal,” Jesse explained.
@MV_Standard Great coverage. One correction: If You believe some @FoxNews are trying to appeal to #antivaxxers ?? I disagree. Fox 🦊 is Pro #SelfDetermination ImageImage

Jack Turner discussed this article on Black Agenda Radio: "the #Grenada revolution could inspire a more transnational Black revolutionary presence within the western hemisphere, and as a result became a deep threat to the US State"…

The people behind #CommunicationRights are not obstructionist behaviorists. @NeuroClastic has speech language pathologists, psychologists, educators, OTs, MTs, researchers, neuroscientists, & nonspeakers who communicate through AAC, spelling, & sign. #ActuallyAutistic #Autism
These people may have an aggressive approach to bullying autistics & our allies out of our own narratives & using their white (that's all white people) privilege to maintain the #monopoly on #Autism, but they are NOT allies. They are #oppressors. We can and do communicate. See?
We have orgs, individuals, & initiatives championing #CommunicationRights. @U4CommChoice @Communica1st @ekverstania @autselfadvocacy @awnnetwork_ @ReachEveryVoice and so many more. It's 2020, and we are #nonCompliant with a #Behaviorist agenda that parades itself as #science.

@VickieLeff asks if there is something different about how #HAPC professionals experience professional grief than other medical professionals? We seem to be treated as such. Perhaps sheer numbers? #PedPC #ECHOPal
She also reminds us that one of the consequences of not being aware of our own “stuff” is counter-transferring, pushing your own desires onto their decision-making, rather than allowing them to follow their own course at end-of-life. #EOL #HAPC #Grief
She reminds us that #stage theory of grief is outdated, and post-modern theories like Dual-Process Model from Strobe and Schut which allows us to oscillate back and forth in our feelings over an unspecified amount of time. #Grief.

As it is obvious that the #Taiwanisation of #ROC drastically accelerated recently, it is probably a good time to share some songs that reflects on the ever-changing #Taiwan Identity & imagine what constitutes a decolonised #TaiwanAnthem that could better represent the people.
1921: 'Taiwanese Cultural Association Theme Song' (臺灣文化協會會歌).
Written by Chiúⁿ Ūi-súi (蔣渭水), a leading figure in Taiwan's resistance movement at the time. It emphasises on the pan-Asian identity「我等都是亞細亞黃色的人種」
and a rather modern understanding of the difference between 'Nationality' (Japanese) and 'Ethnicity' (Han)「漢族血脈日本百姓」There is a history of Taiwanese making the distinction, because of the long historical mismatch between 'colonial nationality' and 'cultural affiliation'

I’ve been following recent constitutional developments in the UK with popcorn but also from behind the sofa.
8000 miles away in the #FalklandIslands, we do have a written constitution, given to us by the UK ...
The #Falklands are on the third version of their Constitution since the events of 1982 and the current version came into force 10 years ago after a long process of consultation and negotiation. Last year, another constitutional review started ...
(Thread continues)
In the meantime, there will be a referendum in the #Falklands next year (the third in 19 years on the same issue) on a proposal to amend the one bit of the #FalklandIslands Constitution that can be changed locally under current rules ...

"Catalonia and the trial on the referendum: a challenge for the EU". Conferència conjunta amb el president @QuimTorraiPla a Brussel·les

📲 Pots seguir-la en directe aquí ➡️

Last Tuesday, a political trial against members of the previous @govern, against social leaders of the main civil organizations of #Catalonia and against the former president of the @parlamentcat began in Spain #CatalanEU
The simple fact that this trial could take place brings #ShametoSpain and, therefore, to the entire #EuropeanUnion, whose main institutions have chosen to remain silent, when facing such a disgraceful situation where democracy is at stake #CatalanEU

If you’ve been listening to Venezuelan comrades (ex: @GonzaloAporrea, @veroconplatanos, or @miigueeh18), you know both can be true:

1) Venezuelan comrades want radical change that doesn’t involve Maduro.

2) U.S. interference in Venezuelan affairs should be huge cause for alarm.
Here are some other great threads on this matter from non-Venezuelan folks:

Things are moving quickly, and it seems as though there will be no true democratic process anytime soon.
