There’s been much talk about #trees and the #ClimateCrisis from scientists such as @bast_jief and @TWCrowther. While this is very exciting, we can't ignore those like @StephenWoroniec who remind us to respect #LandRights and adopt #NatureBasedSolutions. /1

I’d like to add an #Indigenous perspective to this conversation. I’m from what is now called southwestern #Ontario (Canada). It’s mostly industrial farmland but even from space you can see many reserves due to tree cover density. Yes, #WeAreStillHere (thanks @LandMarkMap) /2
You can see from these @LandMarkMap #LandTenure, #TreeCover and @CrowtherLab #biomass #treepotential data that the intersection between #IndigenousPeoples #LandRights, #deforestation and the #ClimateCrisis isn’t exclusive to Asia or the “Global South”: /3

How can we as #Americans accept that our government is responsible for the #genocide of #Yemeni civilians? How can we as a society not demand by every means necessary for the world's greatest #Humanitarian #Crisis to end?

#Yemen before #War
#Yemen a beautiful country full of beautiful #Yemeni who simply want to be left in peace. A country that's only fault is it's location in the world. A location that for the #US is strategically located close to #SaudiArabia, #Iran, and #Israel.
The #UnitedStates #Indoctrination and #Propaganda machine #FakeNews would have the American people believe we are helping to ensure peace and stability in the region. This is a claim that by now ALL AMERICANS should know is false!

#THREAD : How #Iran has exploited large numbers of Shi’a #Afghan refugees escaping the impending conflicts in #Afghanistan since the early 80’s. This is how their demographic change project is going underway in #Syria.
1-#Iran is looking to remove these refugees from its lands. Despite being granted refugee camps, the Afghans are deprived of basic #rights such as Driving Licenses, SIM cards, and owning real estates. Which all will become an obstacle for Iran’s strategic goals.
2-Iran decided instead to resort to another tactic, exploiting them by taking their males & children to go to #Syria in return for a decent salary and housing in Syria as well as a Syrian #passport for them and their families in the expense of the native displaced #Sunnis.

We've just released the final report by @Alston_UNSR, the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme #poverty, on his visit to the #UK. The report is available here: undocs.org/A/HRC/41/39/Ad…. A few key takeaways:
Some have asked me why a UN expert on #poverty would visit the #UK. Unfortunately, although the UK is the world’s 5th largest economy, 14 million are in poverty, child poverty is rising & predicted to reach 40% by 2021, homelessness is up 60%, and food bank use has skyrocketed.
To understand #poverty in the #UK, you have to look at the massive disinvestment in social support since 2010: the end of a centralized social fund, changes to the ways benefits are capped & calculated that substantially reduce their value, the decimation of civil legal aid, etc.

@EricHolder has asked an important question:

#When was #America #ever #great?

I realize that there is a nearly unavoidable tendency to snort and spew one's coffee when they hear or read his question for the first time. But, honestly, isn't it worth the exercise to answer it?
So, @EricHolder, I'm going to do just that, and I'm going to ask my ragtag bag of followers and detractors to contribute as well.

I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
But wait!

There's more!

I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.

Salman's coup and purge flowered briefly under Trump and Simple Jared (more from Mueller via Nader) and is back to the 7th century. Goodbye to #NEOM #Yemen #Rights #https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3502079/Saudi-Arabia-s-kingdom-savagery-DOES-Britain-cosy-butchers.html

Let's start our #GlobalEChats on #music!

Among our #discussion topics: 1. #Stakeholders in music and what happens to them? 2. #Production of music 3. #Consumption of music 4. New #technology out there!
Firstly, let's talk about how scary #technology and #advancement can be to #music.

Some stats:
The US lost $12.5 billion a year in total sales due to pirated music.

71k jobs were lost; $2.7bn in annual earnings; $1.1bn of that would have been earned by the industry.
Source:

sheffieldav.com/education/how-…

But as with any #tech #disruption, there are always negative externalities.

In the #music industry, most of the bad press came from #piracy. Sites like Napster and P2P torrenting were rampant back in the day.

What do you do when you disagree with someone ? ... How do you handle a different perspective? ... I check we are talking about the same thing... consider the logic and evidence and finally stress test their conclusions...
I did that and I disagreed with @CarolineLucas my leader
First off @CarolineLucas is #spectacularly bright, #hardworking and a #visionary who pulled me into @TheGreenParty orbit. There are very few... perhaps no other UK politicians with a more determined record of standing up for our collective #environmental #rights #newgreenpolitics

Know Your (Personal) Rights lancasterpsychology.com/2018/08/15/kno…
#1: I have the right to ask for what I want.
You are allowed to ask. You don't have to mind-read beforehand to make sure the answer will be yes. You don't have to swallow everything you want or like or need. Sure, it's possible the answer will be "no," but you can prepare for that possibility. It's not wrong to ask.

It's May, meaning a lot of my artist friends are graduating! Some of my UK friends are considering freelancing, while searching for jobs or even jumping into it full time and getting themselves out there! Some advice. Do not undersell yourself. You have #rights! (thread!)
As of August 2017, the Artist's Union England determines the following hourly rates for an artist to be fair; £21.04 p/hr for a new graduate artist. That's about $28 dollars for my US friends. This goes up to £27.27 p/hr for 3 yrs+ exp, and £31.47 per hour for 5 years or more. /2
If you are doing sessional/daily rates such as presentations, consultations and installations. You should be looking at £166.24 p/day (£ 83.12 p/ 1⁄2 day) for a new grad artist, £218.19 p/day (£109.10 p/ 1⁄2 day) 3 yrs+ exp, £270.14 p/day (£135.07 p/ 1⁄2 day) 5 yrs+ exp. /3
