protests against the third runway at Heathrow airport. Some were arrested yesterday before the protest. Extension conflicts with 0 emissions. First they ignore you. Then they laugh. Then they fight you. Then you win.

Our happiness, comfort and safety does not come at the expense of our fellow brothers and sisters who are left to suffer at our doorstep. Migrants are people, not a burden, nor a nuisance, and certainly not a threat. 👊🏾💚 Me in the EU Observer ⤵️

Why I think climate breakdown is so important when trying to protect human rights, especially of those being forced to leave home due to their houses and livelihoods being destroyed.

EU migration policies need substantial change, but could now open the ports and give permission to the Italian coastguard to sail for rescues.

It takes courage and determination to confront destructive elites and press for change. But no one can do it alone and we all must take responsibility.

Bolsonaro gets all the press attention. Meanwhile neighbouring Bolivia is also burning. I think we as media users need to make an effort to confront complex situations and ask the press to cover them.
