1. A response from #workingclass Russia: "Europe does not want to have anything in common in Russia except money. Never did. That's why it can only 'speak to us' with the language of sanctions. They won't hurt Putin and his cronies. What's the point?
2. "Social racism - is the biggest problem in Russia (its intelligentsia) and in European society. Europe was ready to speak only with the intelligentsia, which showed and could simulate Europeanized public opinion. It was such a showcase.
3. "At the same time, the “deep Russian” is generally unknown to Europe - it was only visible in the fights of football fans. And Europe refused to look for words and understanding of ALL of Russia, and not just Lev Ponamorev, Parkhomenko or Albats.

Aim of the webinar is to provide the working class with an understanding of the disease and how it can be fought. -- @DavidNorthWSWS #EndCOVD #October24
The cost in human lives is the product of a very deliberate policy. — David North. All politics and all policy are in the end about social and economic interests. — David North
The case for #elimination is so clear, so persuasive, that it would at first seem hard to understand how it could be argued against. — David North

‘Returns on social infrastructure’ and social R&D are topics that really resonate with me at the moment. Post covid renewal and recovery will depend on our ability to rebuild our social fabric in imaginative and creative ways. #SocEnt #socialinnovation
If the 90s-2020s Digital Revolution was the era that transformed society through mass adoption of digital infrastructure, hoping the 20s-2050s will unlock an equivalent Social Revolution that increases wellbeing & inclusion through renewed social infrastructure & human connection
I’ve been pondering for a few years now what restorative public services might be like in a circular economy sense. Instead of being an extractive wasteful race to the bottom, being a multiplier of nascent social capital and restorer of dignity, diversity, community and belonging

“Our people, we know what it’s like to be snatched and grabbed. We see our women disappear and become hashtags, #MMIW.”

Gabriel Black Elk speaks in #Minneapolis on behalf of #NativeLivesMatter re: what the #UnitedStates fed govt has perpetrated over the centuries.
“Politicians on both sides of the aisle will not protect working-class people & protesters here in this country so it’s gonna be US: #WorkingClass ppl standing shoulder-to-shoulder when fed troops come.”

We’re covering a rally in #Minneapolis in solidarity w #PortlandProtests.
Legal observer speaks about CBP officers as people who don’t qualify to be regular #police and who specifically seek employment as border patrol officers because they enjoy the lawlessness of it.

“The only thing these cowards understand is the power of the people.”

Could not be happier that @BorisJohnson's equality commission will look at the plight of #workingclass white boys; the educational attainment gap, #opportunity gap that limits social mobility in places like #Mansfield

#THANKYOU Boris. That is massive!
telegraph.co.uk/politics/2020/…
Since I was elected this has been one of my passions, and I've raised the #education challenge on particular countless times (inc ) and highlighted how disadvantaged white males are most likely to fall behind at #school, but how little this is recognised.
Chuffed @BorisJohnson will properly investigate this, cut through the negative atmosphere that has often prevented it from being discussed, and try to help some of the most disadvantaged communities to #LevelUp and boost #LifeChances. Hope to be able to contribute 👍 #ThankYou

#Rockefeller is rolling out the "largest public health testing program in American history" & aims to form a "#Pandemic Testing Board" that utilizes US national guard to deploy testing.

Embargoed until 12:01am EDT, Tuesday, April 21, 2020: The #Rockefeller Foundation has created a National #Covid19 Testing Action Plan intended to serve as a resource guide for the "largest public health testing program in American history". Image
"The effort will ultimately grow to billions of dollars per month although innovations in testing technology should eventually drop costs...Coordination of such a massive program should be treated as a wartime effort, with a public/private bipartisan #Pandemic Testing Board..." Image

Pls don't be rattled or deceived.

While Corbyn & Sanders have some similarities, they are not same, nor are UK & US the same: Brexit & antisemitic attacks against Corbyn are 2 examples.

Corporate #MSM tactics are the same in UK & US.

Utilizing Labour's defeat, MSM is ...

trying to leverage loss against #Bernie2020. Ppl compared the 2 campaigns. As Labour votes declined last night, some quickly piggybacked that #Bernie2020 & Left values were not viable.

I watched as Berners became heartbroken, worried Labor loss would infect U.S. momentum...

UK Labour loss is similar to our 2016 Dem Primary & election loss.

We need to focus on #Progressive ground game here in U.S. Don't listen to corp #MSM pundits w/ contrived polls throwing pasta at wall hoping anyone but #Bernie2020 sticks & corporate "manufacturing consent",

Today, as I've done since I before I started this campaign, I gave my parents all the money I could afford. All to try and help them make ends meet as they're faced with medical bills, car payments, and other necessities families across the country struggle to afford. 1/
There are 5 of us working together to keep this house afloat, and we only barely succeed. We are the #workingclass, and we have not benefitted from the economy that Trump and his ilk love to tout. In the richest country in the world, this shouldn't be reality for anyone, 2/
But it's all too common. Anyone not born into privilege knows the fear of being one minor emergency, or one vehicle breakdown, away from financial ruin. Sadly, our elected reps like @DrPhilRoe know no such struggle, or perhaps simply don't care. Whichever is the case, 3/

#TLDR - if you're a woman or from a #workingclass or 'minority' background in the UK, your exclusion from #publishing is not by accident it's #ByDesign. Inclusion programmes deal w/ symptoms; for change, we need redesign. (co @BareLit & @rlfwriters)

"They didn’t stop to consider the picture that includes what we have been taught to euphemistically call “side effects”, “human cost”, “collateral damage”." #ByDesign
"But consciousness is hard work and most of the privileged are unwilling to do the work."

Quelques remarques éparses sur l'annulation du show de #RoseanneBarr par @ABCNetwork (et son renvoi par sa propre agence de #relapub), la comédienne fan de #Trump sortie de l'oubli par le président US. Il y a de véritables leçons politiques...#thread washingtonpost.com/news/reliable-…
2) D'1 part, #RoseanneBarr a été rappelée pour 1 resucée de sa série vedette des années 1990 parce que @ABCNetwork avait décidé, dès le lendemain de l'élection de #Trump, en novembre 2016, 1"Heartland strategy" pour reconquérir l'électorat rural et blanc #workingclass...
3) Et cette stratégie de reconquête d'@ABCNetwork sur l'électorat de #Trump avait été 1 triomphe lors du retour de #Roseanne fin mars 2018: meilleure audience en 4 ans pour 1 sitcom US, et carton à Tulsa en Oklahoma ou Cincinnati en Ohio, bastions de la #workingclass blanche...
