At 4 am, #MichaelThompson walked out of a Michigan prison a free man thanks to @lastprisonerprj. Having followed this case with @Montel_Williams, this was the best news I’ve woken up to in a long time. Also, thank you @shaunking. Appreciate your activism.

Biden's UN envoy pick says BDS should "not be allowed to have a voice" at UN, which appears to contradict SOS Blinken, who, while opposing BDS, defended rights of people to say what they believe and opposed measures to sanction those boycotting Israel.

Replying to @RashidaTlaib: With respect to the Ambassador-designate, BDS is a matter of protected speech, human rights, & human dignity. Nonviolent…

Right now a real battle is going on between people (Democrats & Republicans) who want to invest their money wherever and however they want and mega-corporations that are deciding they simply won’t allow it because it doesn’t benefit them.

It’s infuriating.

Looks like Robinhood just stopped supporting GameStop, AMC, Blackberry, and Nokia. Users can close out positions but can’t buy more

Thus reinforcing a core tenet of capitalism: massive financial institutions can profit off the pain of normal people, but normal people can never profit off the pain of massive financial institutions.

Above all else, Michael expressed the need for broad prison and drug policy reform, and his desire to use his voice to create meaningful change for those he left behind. Michael also shared his gratitude to all those that advocated on his behalf.

At 4am this morning Michael Thompson was finally released from prison in Jackson, Michigan. He was reunited with his family and loved ones he has not seen in over 25 years after being sentenced to 40-60 years for selling cannabis.

I think every time you see this woman in public and you are a reporter you have to ask her about Sandy Hook, Parkland, 9/11. Las Vegas, threatening Nancy Pelosi et al, and the Election fraud. She should never not be asked about these things.

The impacted community can’t just be a talking point when convenient but then be completely cut out of policies and decision making. Change can’t happen without the impacted community.

With respect to the Ambassador-designate, BDS is a matter of protected speech, human rights, & human dignity. Nonviolent boycott has always been a hallmark of the struggles for equality and justice for all—which Israel has long denied Palestinians under the occupation. 1/2

Quoted @SquawkCNBC

"As we look at these new technologies that are available ... it's important for regulators to understand that manipulation is manipulation whether it's happening through a new technology medium or it's happening through traditional mail," says @Nasdaq CEO @adenatfriedman.

When vulture funds ran a multimillion dollar campaign to drive the economy of Argentina into the ground to profit off junk debt, emiserating an entire country, nobody on Wall Street called for regulation. When they did the same to Puerto Rico, these people were silent. Eat shit.
