How many police officers does it take to arrest a homeless black man for stealing food from a grocery store? 12. 6 cars. Guns were drawn. I yelled "Happy Thanksgiving" to them while shaking my head as I passed them in the parking lot.

We have 1 more week to submit comments on the @USACEHQ  proposed plan for the Yazoo Backwater Area Pumps. It’s important that as many of us as possible provide pro-pumps comments to offset the out-of-state forces fighting the pumps. I voiced my support today. #FinishThePumps  Read:

Scoops of the Day

We're so close to an era with mass testing, therapeutics and several vaccines -> why risk getting infected & infecting others over the holidays? Delaying by a few months is perfectly rational given solutions within sight in the Spring. We've been in this for 10 months already.

We’re pleased to announced that our Rail to Refuge scheme, which enables survivors of domestic abuse to travel to refuge for free, is being extended until the end of March 2021, thanks to the generosity of the @RailDeliveryGrp  More info➡️

Home is where the 🧡 is. For 5-year-old Elquin it used to be where rain, animal, and the threat of strangers interrupted his sleep. Now, thanks to his sponsors, Elquin and his family have a new, safe home where he can dream without fear: #WorldOfFirsts

Scoops of the Week

Nassima is in prison for her work defending women’s rights in Saudi Arabia. She goes months without seeing her children or lawyer. Sign the petition now to demand her freedom. #W4R20 📢✍️

Today marks #TransDayOfRemembrance , where we honour and remember all those who have lost their lives due to transphobic violence. Today, and every day, we fight for a fair and equal world where trans and non-binary people are free to live their lives without persecution.

It is very hard to tell people what they *need* to hear based on facts. Not what they *want* to hear based on emotion.

WHO: all countries must share vaccine. Rich countries: of course we will. *Vaccine arrives* Rich countries: hold my drink.

Life can feel heavy & tough right now with no end in sight. Remember things will get better -> scientists are optimistic. Try to find something meaningful each day & something to look forward to. Even if it’s meeting a friend for a walk outside or watching your favourite TV show.

I'm less concerned about getting the virus myself. More worried about unintentionally infecting someone else in a chain of infections that gets someone very ill/hospitalized, & puts pressure on NHS. Don't want to be responsible for that. It's bad karma. I'm all about good vibes.

There must be a prompt, thorough, independent and impartial investigation into the human rights violations during the crisis in #Peru  and guaranteed justice for victims.

We know what it takes to get prevalence low- many countries have done this. We know what works in controlling COVID. The real question is how to protect low prevalence areas sustainably. This is why travel restrictions & travel bubbles are essential.

Saudi women are now allowed to drive, yet the women who won the change are in jail have been thrown in jail. Nassima risked her freedom to demand freedom and equality for everyone in the country. Call for her immediate release: 📢✍️ #W4R20 

What fantastic news! Whenever it’s my turn (after all the priority groups), delighted to get vaccinated. No hesitation given the safety trials.
