Palestinian life has no meaning or consequence for #IDF recruits. They know, even in a foreign country, they cannot be prosecuted because they can return to Israel under a different name. This lady has killed many people including children.

We have Zionists crying on prime time news channels that they feel unsafe when their union stands in #Solidarity with #EthnicCleansingOfPalestine . @BBCNews you need to get a grip of yourself and stop conflating retched Zionists with anti-semitism.
Here we have a young woman and her father shot for daring to go outside to see what atrocities were happening on Israeli streets against Palestinians. Both shot as they went inside. Zionists try to convince us this is OK. All Palestinians are terrorist. Never OK #IsraeliTerrorism

Increasing money for policing is kinda like getting bigger buckets for a leak inside your home but never going on the roof to analyze the problem. We say the bucket isn’t working, it’s overflowing, has holes, we fall over it.

People respond, “You just want my house to flood!?”
Police are reactive and barely good at that. Interpersonal harm is caused by, and causes, social inequality. Of course these things will increase during the peak rates of inequality we had during the pandemic with job loss, evictions, racial violence, gender based violence, etc
And now you have governors withdrawing from federal unemployment which will exacerbate inequality. People are stressed and economically exploited. Police can only exacerbate the violence against them through arrests and imprisonment that makes people more precarious in life

Max Berger: People within the Labor movement were a little skeptical of a more social Labor movement, & people thought it was nuts to go for $15/hr min wage. Now $15 is the floor & it's the standard demand for Democrats.
@maxberger @MorePerfectUS
Max Berger: Ordinances have been passed in cities & states but it's still early days in this movement for $15/hr.
@maxberger @MorePerfectUS
Max Berger: The #Fightfor15 is branching out into workers' rights, too, which is a sign of strength.

Literal democrat lackey doing democrats bidding, smearing just like they did to me. The Democrats at jacobin, in unions & in the dsa, have to desperately silence ANYONE who recognises the interests that they're advancing are their own + the bosses. That's why they smear wsws.
"the wreckers at wsws and sep have really *soured rank and file mineworkers on socialism* and its pissing me off."

They think working class people are marks. It's as if miners (or Amazon factory workers) get brainwashed by Jacobin's "competition" in the "marketplace for ideas."
This scumsucking parasite literally blames wsws for workers rejecting his AFL-CIO bullshit, the same afl-cio affiliate that negotiated a contract for workers to "do their bit" & "sacrifice" for company profits! now he wants to pass ProAct & give more power to administrators! ImageImage

Israel is original purveyor of wokeness as state ideology, but the foundational trauma used to mystify US support for them has run out of juice, so Western intersectional leftists need more marginalised victims with whose suffering they can conceal their imperialist machinations.
Hence their pretensions and expressions of #Solidarity with the Palestinian petty bourgeoisie, their fellow rent chasers and terrorists, the types who make life miserable for Palestinian workers, and often conduct the bidding of external nationalist patrons, or foreign powers.
"Supporting" Israel as a US proxy in ME (by funding its weapons), guards against US having no leverage in otherwise Arab/Muslim region, prevents emergence of much stronger regional imperialist bloc that would empower US rivals eg Sauds, Iran. Left woketards ignore this/hate US.

Blame @twitter for the pic autofocusing on my balls.

And yes. I did display those to multiple officers while they gagglefucked me into cells. None of their accounts of events quite match though, nor do they match the breeze I felt on the boys!

Ask 'em about my 1st mugshot!🤘

1/n This thread is not about Medicine, Science or Lung Disease. It’s about what you should ask when when you hear about another cycle of violence in #IsraelPalestine. Written in #Solidarity with the Jews & Arabs who today stand together against racism & hate #TrueHeroes
2/n When people speak about “country x’s right to defend itself” - what you should ask, does the leadership of country x have the right to provoke violence? and do the actions taken really constitute defense or serve another agenda? #KnowWhatToAsk #IsraelPalestine
3/n When they say but “look at the violence in the streets by the minority ” - what you should ask, is what has been done to the minority , how many have been dispossessed, killed without recourse, disenfranchised and for how long? #IsraelPalestine #EndTheOppression

Looks like the workers at the Dollar General in Eliot, Maine have had enough! #Solidarity
I’m told by one of the employees that the manager & three workers all quit yesterday with only one employee left.
"My coworkers were tired of putting up with being treated like garbage. My manager that quit yesterday was working over 70 hours a week for 40 salaried, no days off. So we finally got tired of it." - DG Employee

Time to fix overtime laws for salaried employees! #mepolitics

#InternationalWorkersDay honors the immigrant organizers unfairly convicted of conspiracy for participating in a wave of worker protests known as the Great Upheaval throughout the 1800s.

But #MayDay's history reaches back farther, and its demands are yet to be fully met.

Agricultural workers throughout Europe (pagan peasants) have celebrated #MayDay as a day too holy to work since at least the 4th century; which is when #Beltane, as some called it, was first mentioned in Irish literature.

#MayDay was a time workers put away their tools & gathered flowers, danced, feasted, held ceremony, built fires, shared libations, and celebrated community.🌻💃🔥

Because workers weren't grinding away making profits for a boss, many May Day celebrations were criminalized.

Fun fact? I've spent 46 more days incarcerated than @chrissaccoccia1 has. I was arrested for messing with his hateful ilk in #Fredericton 14 March...after they'd been harassing a peaceful protest, hurling racist slurs, and toting racist shit about china on boards...
I squawked my #EctoOne siren (#GhostBusters nerd & #Feniex installer, on the way to being certified) and put on my hazards.
THEN, the hateful little #Chuddies started hitting my vehicle, multiple times, one woman had a weird fascination with talking about my penis (I 𝙝𝙤𝙥𝙚 my spouse is satisfied - she was still home when I got released ✌️😉).

GASLIGHTING ALERT!!!
[THREAD]
Twitter friends. Please be aware that there are a number of accounts acting in bad faith accusing comrades of racism/defending/enabling racism. The people behind this campaign are &TheDryhtscipe and &AwakenUnite - both linked to the 'Harmony Party'
'The Harmony Party' is the personal fiefdom of John Urquhart (TheDryhtscipe) who set it up presumably as an antidote to all that was turning rotten in the Labour Party at that time. There were calls for a new 'people's party' and Urquhart clearly smelled a winner..
John and I mutually followed eachother. All seemed well. Then around a year ago, I stumbled across some tweets of his where he was being abusive towards @Rachael_Swindon and that he and a little coterie of his followers were attempting a pile-on.

You’ve heard stories about the 100-day WGA strike in 2007-2008 that paved the way for streaming royalties. But I’m guessing you’ve never heard this story. How one heroic writer stood up to the biggest villain of the entire WGA strike. That’s right, I’m talking about Taco Bell.
The strike started on November 5, 2007, and shortly thereafter, Taco Bell decided to lend its support to the striking writers the best way it could think of: by exploiting us for free labor!
It was called the “Writers Strike Sauce Wisdom Contest.” The idea was that presumably bored writers could submit catchy slogans for the sauce packets and ten winners would receive a year’s supply of Taco Bell (retail value $260).

IMPORTANT THREAD on #COVIDTreatments - What Works & What Does not. Will be an ongoing threat.

Start with Dr Zarir Udwadia of Mumbai.
Link to Dr Udwadia's Video


1st Point: 90000+ Medical papers on Covid. UNFORTUNATELY, big divergence in Observational Studies impact and Real World impact of a rigorous RCT
RCT is Randomized controlled trial.
A Good website is Covid19Primer.com

2) What Works ?
(A) Steroids are essential. #DEXAMETHASONE 6mg/day for Critically ill Covid Patients. Reduces Death by 33/20% for Patients on Ventilators & Oxygen. ImageImageImage

1)Sally, w/ respect, why aren’t British children able to tolerate what children around the world are doing during a pandemic, WITHOUT COMPLAINT?
This virus can kill & cause long term debilitating illness.
It has caused devastation across the globe physically & economically.
2) Why wouldn’t we say -
“This is a difficult situation for us all.
We all want to come out of lockdown w/out causing more illness, death & effects on the economy.
To do this safely EVERYONE MUST HELP REDUCE TRANSMISSION.
We hope you want to be part of this.”
3) This is what I’d say to my children if they were still at school...

“Just for a few hrs a day, to let you all be in school together, PLEASE JUST #WearAMask & accept it’s not 100% comfortable but #MasksSaveLives & YOU can be part of the solution.”

THREAD 22 of writing against the 🪖-coup. It might be on emotional shock and feeling numb. It might be on the suffering of others. It might be on a new advocacy group - or on all of the above. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar Artist: Kuekool
1. This post by #Rohingya #activist @Ali_Jinnah_222 captures two things I want to write about today: being at a loss of words in regard to one’s own feelings - and being in #solidarity with the suffering of others. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovement
2. All of my research in #Myanmar has been with/about ethnic #minorities. My interlocutors are #Muslims and #Hindus locally referred to as “Burmese #Indians”. All of my research assistants happen to be #Kachin #Christians. I have #Chin friends, too

**ACTION ITEM BELOW**
On Monday, two Good Shepherd Collective members headed to #Ofer #military court & #prison to stand in #solidarity with Sami Huraini of Youth Of Sumud / شباب صمود and his family on the day of his trial.
Although we were unable to join Sami in the #courtroom, we sat with his family and dozens of other #Palestinians awaiting their family members, imprisoned and/or awaiting #prosecution in the #military #court system.
In Sami’s case, his trial was postponed, granting momentary relief despite a continuation of the bail conditions which prevent him from participating in #protests—essentially, keeping him from exercising his most basic right to #free speech and #resistance to #oppression.

CBC is an administrators' curriculum. It was never about the children. It was about controlling teachers and reducing their collective voice, especially as a union.

Muigai started that war against teachers in 2010, when he was Finance and acting education minister.
#RejectCBC
In 2010, the British, through @DFID_UK were looking for a business model for education. Just like with Cambridge Analytica, Kenya was the testing ground.

They conducted a very unethical experiment with schools in Kakamega county.
As the thread explains, the experiment was to pay teachers 5k, then compare the exam results of the kids they teach with the exam results of TSC unionized teachers. The game plan was to say that paying teachers human wages with benefits has no impact on education.
