IF IT's MILD

why has army been called in to vaccinate,
drive ambulances
& HGVs

why is the govt desperately trying to recruit teachers who've left / retired

reducing the self isolation period from 10 to 7 days

asking hospitals to prepare for mass casualty events next month
how are hospitals going to separate out #Omicron from #Delta patients, given both can infect you at the same time - they are *separate* variants

we don't need a #Delta #Omicron super variant where the *supposed* mild #Omicron combines with the deadlier #Delta variant!!!!!!!
I could really go on, but I just can't

oh, except to say

why the *fuck* aren't all hospital staff being issued with FPP3 masks

who will care for us, if 50% of hospital staff end up isolating 2 weeks from now, when everyone rings 999 after xmas mixing

Another terrifying article from @BylineTimes

Scientific Racism
Nazi Eugenics (currently happening under the guise of COVID in my opinion - in plain sight) Image
we desperately need to rid ourselves of the current govt & cabinet. They are platforming and employing academic KKK! FFS... Image

yesterday I complained about BOJO's xmas message re boosters for Christians, as earlier in the day the media reported how the Pakistani community is less than 55% vaccinated, today I read this:

I don't do this often so please bear with me. Here's a thread about the alarming developments in #Greece & #New_Democracy's hard-right/#authoritarian turn.👇This photo by D. Tosidis (credit: EPA-EFE; Source:
ANA-MPA) can act as an intro to the thread. 0/ webgate.epa.eu/webgate?EVENT=…
So, is #New_Democracy govt driving #Greece towards democratic backsliding? Today after we witnessed yesterday's disgraceful images of #police brutally attacking & arresting protesting students inside the country’s biggest university is a sadly fitting day to pose the question. 1/
If we take #Hungary & #Poland as exemplary cases in the literature & as points of comparison, the answer is likely to be yes. The most common symptoms of democratic backsliding mentioned by scholars seem to be manifesting in #Greece since July 2019 with disturbing consistency. 2/

A long thread about #immigration and #FreedomOfMovement in the light of the #Covid #vaccine.

While the UK government is now apparently ecstatic with delight to be ending Freedom of Movement, I'm thinking of Albert Bourla, (Άλμπερτ Μπουρλά) a Greek scientist and veterinarian. 1/8
Albert Bourla has lived in four different countries, joined Pfizer in 1993, and has used EU #FreedomOfMovement.

Similarly, the Turkish parents of the CEO of Biontech Uğur Şahin came to Germany when that country opened up and welcomed foreign workers "Gastarbeiter". 2/8
Obviously, the vast majority of #immigrants are not going to design vaccines that potentially can bail us out of this #corona misery.
Still, what strikes me in success stories like these is how many successful immigrants or their parents weren't exceptional when they came. 3/8

The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"

@srdaugherty @billmaher Actually, though not from Spain, the origin of the virus is still disputed. There was a cluster in Kansas, yes.
In terms of why so many virus originate from, @billmaher might need to b reminded of how old the country is (w that, a history of political corruption & bureaucratic
@srdaugherty @billmaher mismanagement) & its important on the Asian-European trade route.
Given #climatechange & (global) #overpopulation, while it is generally a good thing to eat locally sourced food, ppl's incursion into uncharted territory will bring us into contact w exotic species & diseases we
@srdaugherty @billmaher have no immunity to defend ourselves against, whether that's through food sourcing or economic activities, such as logging. Given the fact that there is an intermediary between bats & humans (pangolins), simply making ppl stop eating bats is not gonna help. Also, is @billmaher

#SleepyJoe coughs in his hand while setting forth (by telling people to go to his website) Trump’s and his task force’s #coronavirus plan

#CrazyBernie sets forth his socialist plan to handle #coronvirus

#DemDebate
Joe calls the H1N1 virus, the N1H1 virus. He says he would call leading experts, including world experts and global into the the situation room and would work with other nations.

Bernie focuses on a social safety net, big pharma and free healthcare

#DemDebate #coronavirus
Sleepy Joe says this is a crisis “from abroad” and it’s “war.”

We strongly denounce the systematic efforts of those who attack Europeans with Asian origins over #coronavirus. This disgusting #racist & #xenophobic rhetoric divides our people & stands to threaten our shared European values. #JeNeSuisPasUnVirus @KMTaylorBerlin @MPriv_o @_LICRA_ Image
@KMTaylorBerlin @MPriv_o @_LICRA_ @ARDIEuroParl @EP_Justice @FriendsofEurope @EURightsAgency @GVedeux @helenadalli @forum_ADYFE @PICUM_post @razzismobs @MDI_UK "In the US, government propaganda and pop culture at the time spread wildly racist and inaccurate images of Chinese people as unclean, uncivilized, immoral, & a threat to society."

Racist memes target Chinese eating habits, but the real causes of the coronavirus are more mundane.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

1. Constitution. Its important to understand the Constitution as a whole,not just sections. Also, you must understand the spirit and the letter of the constitution @HermanMashaba. Below is an excerpt but please read Section 2, in its entirety. Note:use of ‘everyone’ & ‘citizen’.
2. “This Bill of Rights is a cornerstone of democracy in South Africa. It enshrines the right of people in our country and affirms the democratic values of human dignity, equality and freedom. The state must protect, respect, promote and fulfill the Rights in the Bill of Rights.”
3. In addition to the Constitution, please remember South Africa is signatory to international Treaties and Conventions amongst others, international human rights treaties. Having ratified these treaties, South Africa is bound by them. We cannot have laws contradicting these.

SHITHOLE THREAD
1.)

The problem with “#SHITHOLE”.
I do not give a shit about “anyone” including our #SHITHOLEPresident using the word SHITHOLE! That is just a stupid vulgar word. Our #SHITHOLEPresident should never have used it, But…

#Resistance #Resist #VetsResistSquadron
SHITHOLE THREAD
2.)

THAT IS NOT THE REAL PROBLEM!!!
There are many problems surrounding our #SHITHOLEPresident and his #SHITHOLE comments, but my issues are twofold, (ONE). the full contextual meaning of what he said, and

#Resistance #Resist #VetsResistSquadron #VetsResist
SHITHOLE THREAD
3.)

(TWO). the level of his ignorance and negative impact it is having on the global community.

1. When viewed in full context, the use of the word #SHITHOLE by our #SHITHOLEPresident is total undeniable #xenophobic.
