#WhyAssangeMatters Abu Zubaydah was waterboarded 83 times, spent 11 days in a coffin-sized box & was experimented on with torture techniques. He only has contact with his lawyer & his words are classified #Assange is tortured for revealing #Guantanamo

Good luck to all #UCU branches that get ballot results tomorrow. I want to thank all activists & organisers for their legwork. As a negotiator, I can attest that it’s members’ actions & union solidarity across the TU movement & the community, that give us power #OneOfUsAllOfUs

Australian Lawyers' Alliance not holding back on Djokovic deportation: "One of the most dangerous aspects of the matter is the preparedness of the federal government to deem someone a risk to public order simply on the basis of what it perceives that person’s views might be."

Also, Egypt's western-backed coup regime allegedly injected the former (*elected*) president's son with a lethal substance and he died. But we hardly talk about that despite obvious parallels with Navalny poisoning

Deportation of a person because of a purported risk as to how others might perceive them and then act sets a terrible precedent. It can and will be used in the future to justify the suppression of legitimate political expression because others might engage in unrest. #djokovic

This is an illustration of a cell in ADX Florence, where #Assange may end up if he does "something" that causes the US to cancel assurances. Where he will go if extradited - Alexandria Detention Centre - for the first 10 years perhaps, has smaller cells - 70 sq. ft.

We need to talk about the dual offences of 1) elites exempting themselves from inhumane & sometimes illogical rules they made for everyone else and that hit marginalised groups* hardest, and 2) THE INHUMANE AND ILLOGICAL RULES. The Opposition has only got so far as “elites”.
