This thread and the replies are giving me so much joy https://twitter.com/objectuk/status/1071568627986558983
I’m loving Revolting Prostitutes not just as a really good piece of non-fiction writing, but also because I’m so in awe of its rigour & precision. If I ever am in charge of research students, I’d want to recommend it as a good example of research executed well.
It's been months and twitter just isn't working for me - my mentions don't show people's tweets to me and I have to manually search for them. I'm sorry if I miss any!
Every moment I spend on @AshleyJudd who is on the board of @DemandAbolition, who pay for more LE in communities of color, & supports @CATW, whose ED says women who trade sex "can't be fixed" is a moment I'm not giving to #sexworkers, survivors, people whose voice matters
I find this kinda stuff even worse than not listening at all, actually. Don't piss on my hooker heels and tell me it's raining https://twitter.com/ashleyjudd/status/1071895481586991105

think this passage from jackie wang’s carceral capitalism is particularly relevant in light of the #stanstead15 conviction
Sending so much love to @EDeportations - let us remember that what is defined as criminal is always political. The #Stansted15 are being punished for their political dissent in a climate of racism and a dehumanising border regime. May Allah fortify them. Ameen.
Attend this protest if you can! #Stansted15 https://twitter.com/edeportations/status/1072175609076477953?s=21
Let’s do this https://twitter.com/right_to_remain/status/1072160439625228288
The #Stansted15 will be appealing the guilty verdict. Help them fund the trial related costs: https://chuffed.org/project/end-deportations-charter-flight-action-trial-related-costs
"I had no idea then of what I know now: that the actions of those activists, who became known as the #Stansted15, would help me see justice, and save my life in Britain."
From one of the people on board that flight, who has since won his right to remain: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/dec/10/stansted-15-protesters-deportation
The #Stansted15 have been convicted for preventing a charter deportation flight through peaceful direct action.
This action meant that people were able to continue to fight to remain with their families, communities, in the places they have made their lives.
“It’s the Home Office’s brutal, secretive and barely legal practice of mass deportation flights that is putting people in danger, and their ‘hostile environment’ policy that is hurting vulnerable people.” https://twitter.com/edeportations/status/1072108683184824321
Wildly gracious response to something so inhumane https://twitter.com/bencsmoke/status/1072113687627001857
Horrifying verdict. Solidarity with the #Stansted15 https://twitter.com/edeportations/status/1072107231460642816
one of those days when I feel so angry about what we have to consider 'normal'
In one month most SWs I know have - 10 times over! - heard and forgotten the kind of report that would be front page news if it happened to say, a personal trainer or an interior designer on the job
