"The military and the Israeli police showed up early on, but they didn’t do a thing. Israeli firetrucks also arrived, but their crews didn’t help at all. They were only on standby in case the fire spread towards the settlements" https://www.btselem.org/node/213034

“The last fully intact ice shelf in the Canadian Arctic has collapsed, losing more than 40% of its area in just two days at the end of July” Larger than the island of Manhattan...  #FaceTheClimateEmergency https://www.huffpost.com/entry/canada-last-arctic-ice-shelf_n_5f2c9d69c5b64d7a55f0d6ec

This week, BP committed to reducing its oil and gas production and investing in more renewable energy.

@Shell, you've also contributed massively to the climate crisis, when will you take real action to reduce your planet-wrecking emissions? #ClimateEmergency 

RT & tag @Shell!

To personally experience how traffic can evaporate, I recommend going car-free for a year. ❤️

People talk a lot about traffic evaporation. It is a difficult concept to understand if, like most people, you think of traffic like water. It has to go somewhere doesn’t it? This great graphic shows the reality of what happens when road space is re-allocated.

The Government's new planning rules will line the pockets of the Tories' developer chums, but won't provide more social housing nor more precious green space on people's doorsteps My piece in  @The House Live  @PoliticsHome https://www.politicshome.com/thehouse/article/planning-reform-must-protect-green-spaces-not-give-a-b...

Diane is a politician who I have shared panels and platforms with over many years. It pains me to hear about the unrelenting racist bile and double standards she has had to endure including from her own party. We must redouble our efforts to clean up politics.

Officials at the very top of  @The Labour Party said stuff like “Abbott is truly repulsive” “Abbott literally makes me sick” and conspired with media against me. Now claiming remarks taken out of context. So let’s have full publication of all communications  #LabourLeaks

"Follow the science". A 30mph a motor has 2.25 times the Kinetic Energy when it crashes at 30mph compared to 20mph. In distance a 20mph motor can stop, a 30mph motor only brakes to 24mph. Its why  #20splenty where people are and why we need a national default urban 20.

 @Caroline Lucas@Keir Starmer should be on every media channel demanding an immediate inquiry into what appears to be a thoroughly corrupt procurement process (see  @Jo Maugham QC's thread this morning). Where is an effective opposition when it's desperately needed?

 #Covid PPE contracts are a scandal -UK has spent much more on PPE than any other EU country -73% of contracts approved without competition -money handed to a banker & others with no record in medical equipment Another reason for an urgent public inquiry https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/ministers-waste-150m-buying-unusable-masks-from-banker-5v839...

If you think it’s an outrage that  #BBCBreakfast can allow a Gov’t minister to tell it’s millions of viewers this blatant untruth & than fail to correct it RT

A Government Minister today told BBC viewers 

“We’re testing 335,000 people a day” for #Coronavirus

That’s completely untrue! On latest data it’s only 52,000 people a day!

This has got to stop!

Boris Johnson continues to say he believes Mr Cummings behaved reasonably and he considers the matter is closed. RT this if you disagree with him on that  #MatterNotClosed

Your daily reminder @BorisJohnson. The public have not forgotten how you ignored the rule of law, shut down journalists & experts & put lives at risk to keep your adviser Dominic Cummings in a job.

We have not #MovedOn. NO WAY!

This was for the Dec 2019 election - but you could do the same thing, for whatever you care about: the climate crisis, the NHS, the loss of democracy...

Through "transfer" Israel transformed itself from a binational state to a Jewish state, & the demographic problem appeared settled. Except it actually wasn’t because Palestinian refugees forced from their homes have the right to go back home. http://ow.ly/2BIV50ARapH  @Mondoweiss

WATCH: BDS coordinator Mahmoud Nawajaa, currently detained by Israel, says in 2018:

BDS “brought hope and inspiration for all Palestinians... It gave people of conscience a very practical tool” to move beyond symbolic solidarity.

At least £50m profit for supplying unusable PPE. Makes Harry Lime's antibiotics scam in The Third Man look like small beer. What's being exposed in this thread would, in normal times, lead to instant resignations followed rapidly by criminal prosecutions.  #ToryCorruption

If Israel truly wants to help Lebanon in its current crisis, it should allow 200,000 Palestinian refugees there to return to their cities, towns and villages from which they were expelled in 1948. After that, light as many buildings as you want.

Wow! Our little piece of radical futurism, Message From the Future with  @Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was just nominated for an Emmy against a whole bunch of hard news!

"A great wake up call as winter barley and OSR (oilseed rape) are 25pc down, wheat 40pc down, peas 50pc down." Too right! Why is the paper putting "silver lining" in the headline when the truth is that climate chaos is relentlessly grim for farmers? https://www.edp24.co.uk/business/farming/euston-estate-completes-2020-harvest-ahead-of-schedule-1-67...

This news comes less than two weeks after we reported an Israeli prison official, working at Ofer prison where Palestinian children are detained, tested positive for COVID-19. https://www.dci-palestine.org/israel_must_release_all_palestinian_child_detainees_amid_coronavirus_r...

🚨BREAKING: A Palestinian child detained in an Israeli military prison has tested positive for COVID-19. We're urgently calling on Israeli authorities to immediately release all Palestinian child detainees amid the coronavirus pandemic. http://ow.ly/QSsg50ASLbU

This is the climate emergency. Heatwaves and pandemics will become more frequent and more deadly in a warming world. Take care of each other tomorrow. We know you will. https://news.sky.com/story/uk-weather-we-could-be-set-for-a-heatwave-with-temperatures-hotter-than-t...

Tens of UN human rights experts warn Israel’s planned formal annexation of occupied Palestinian territory will crystallize “a 21st century apartheid.”

They amplified Palestinian civil society’s call for countermeasures against Israel, including sanctions:

I actually think it's own fault cyclists. We should always cycle in the middle of the lane. Cycling in the gutter gives motorists the impression that the space is theirs as of right.

I call it- normality has resumed. Just went for an evening bike ride only to have some arsehole beep his horn at me because I was "in his lane" at the junction. Then he tries to run me off the road when I don't move. Nearby police didn't even look up as he swerved across lanes
