have a great day everyone

I'm sorry to have to announce that our friend @DawnHFoster has passed away at home suddenly, aged 34. An elegant writer and eloquent commentator, Dawn effortlessly mastered a media mainstream loath to admit outsider perspectives.

Midnight in Withington. Quiet, peaceful, powerful.

great report on how thousands of videos of Uyghurs denying abuses against their community are showing up on Twitter and YouTube, as part of an elaborate influence campaign by Chinese officials to counter reports of human rights violations https://www.propublica.org/article/how-china-uses-youtube-and-twitter-to-spread-its-propaganda-version-of-life-for-uyghurs-in-xinjiang

Dea-John Reid, a 14-year-old boy, was subjected to racist abuse before being chased and stabbed to death in Birmingham. Four men in their 30s and two boys aged 13 and 14, have been arrested on suspicion of his murder. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/jun/02/dea-john-reid-boy-14-stabbed-death-racist-abuse-police-birmingham

Belarusian authorities onboard a Ryanair flight lied and said there was a bomb threat, in order to force the flight to land so they could detain a 26-year-old journalist, Roman Protasevich

He told fellow passengers “they’ll execute me here.”

I’m in shock. That building was my office for years. Now gone in an Israeli air attack. The BBC and AP also had offices there, but most of the floors were residential. So many more families are homeless in Gaza tonight. https://twitter.com/StefanieDekker/status/1393541536755986445

Hi there - I spent the last six months interviewing politicians, civil servants, frontline staff, lawyers, judges, campaigners and ordinary people caught up in the system to ask one simple question: what’s up with the Home Office? https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/may/13/cruel-paranoid-failing-priti-patel-inside-the-home-office

is it any wonder why violence against women is still not taken seriously enough, when men who run newspapers/the press continue to praise a man who murdered his wife.

lol, what a take. its delusional to think attending private school isn't related to class.

i enjoyed watching Nicola Sturgeon calmly tell a far-right activist who confronts her “you’re a racist and a fascist and Glasgow will reject you" and then walk off

finally, I can use the hashtag #dogsatpollingstations

Julia James was walking her dog when she was viciously attacked and killed. She specialised in supporting victims of domestic abuse as a police community support officer. It's been over a week and still no arrests. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-56977553

I don’t read the Telegraph and yet every day, at least two/three of their stories are promoted in my trending topics tabs. What deal do they have with Twitter? Is this the same for anyone else? 🥴

The Commons voted down the Stalker’s Register Amendment today. There was political momentum behind the legislation, but ultimately they gave women street lights instead, because it was cheaper. So many lives would have been saved. A bitter pill to swallow https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/domestic-abuse-bill-stalkers-register-b1832164.html%3famp
