Capitalists are already framing the latest IPCC #ClimateReport as humanity's fault, when the vast majority of emissions and climate denialism can be traced directly to a handful of companies, like Exxon and BP.

We didn’t do this. Capitalists did.

⚠️ Warning: Can you hear the alarm bells ringing? ⚠️

The new #ClimateReport from @IPCC_CH shows that we have irreversibly changed our planet - but there is still a chance to limit warming to 1.5°C. Every action can change our future!

Despite promises by the UK gov, forests like the Amazon continue to be destroyed. @DefraGovUK please take action for our #OneSharedHome by adopting a 2030 global environmental footprint target and putting an end to the UK's role in all overseas deforestation

This is MarineLand’s concrete bear pit. Bears are starved and the public are encouraged to buy and throw food at them. This causes competition and aggression. Fact: in the wild, bears are largely solitary but at MarineLand they are often injured and killed due to overcrowding.

UPDATE: We have more heartbreaking video of Kiska, MarineLand’s last surviving orca floating listlessly at the surface of her concrete pool. She has lived in complete isolation since 2011. Witnesses say she often calls out for other orcas. #FreeKiska

I visited @MarinelandCan years ago when they had 2 orcas. I watched them circle in the tank for hours & witnessed Kiska pushing the other one to the surface for air. I read that the other orca died a short time later. Kiska has been alone ever since. Heartbreaking. #FreeKiska

BRILLIANT AGAIN: Charles Walker - “This House criminalised freedom of protest...we are up to our eyeballs in now is the time to decriminalise freedom of protest... not tomorrow, not next week, but this afternoon”
So true, so principled, so rare

@metpoliceuk But you let the far right anti masks, anti vaccine mob parade freely.
You also let anti #Brexit peaceful protestors be intimidated by far right thugs (I was there).
'Move away & don't engage'?
If it's PEACEFUL, you dive in
If it's VIOLENT, you stand back

Like all violence against women, this was not inevitable. The Met and the London Mayor could have worked with women on the ground to support a Covid safe vigil. Instead they are bringing more violence #ReclaimTheseStreets

As if we needed any more confirmation, tonight's violent behavior by the police demonstrates they are not here to serve and protect women, they are here to uphold our patriarchal system. More police on the streets is not the answer. #ReclaimTheStreets #ReclaimTheseStreets

Toby Young from the Free Speech Union says "there's no evidence that lockdowns work" and thinks it is "project fear on steroids".

Disgusting scenes in Westminster. Police & journalists being attacked by right-wing thugs. Shameful. 👇

Waiting for the 🌈

There was worldwide outcry when the Notre Dame cathedral was on fire. Why is there not the same level of outrage for the fires destroying the #AmazonRainforest?

The Amazon rainforest has been burning for 3 weeks! We are on the verge of losing it completely if the fire isn't put out.

The loss of trees, the loss of biodiversity is what is accelerating CLIMATE CHANGE.
