Channel 4 does not cost the public any money. It’s profitable. It supports an independent TV production industry across the UK. It nurtures new talent. It invests in investigative & foreign journalism like no other. C4 is an asset to the UK. There is no good reason to privatise.

More than 10 women have been killed since the year has started in Kurdistan region #KRI. Mari is one of the many victims. Happy International Women’s to my #Kurdish community who would rather #kill than accept a woman being free and different. rudaw.net/english/kurdis…

This is wrong. And it would be wrong if the owner was Russian, too. We know better than to blame an entire group of people for the actions of some. Friends don't let friends become bigots. twitter.com/ABC7/status/14…

Lest you thought no one in Russia is doing anything: 170 Russian journalists and IR experts have signed an anti-war statement. @ElenaChernenko leading on initiative that might lack immediate impact, but is hugely important nonetheless. twitter.com/ElenaChernenko…

Not many people watch RT in the UK. But millions are reliant on the BBC, which would likely be kicked out of Russia if the UK banned RT. As Churchill said "However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results." twitter.com/Steven_Swinfor…

Anybody in #Tripoli #Lebanon hear that ‘boom’ 20 minutes ago? Possible sonic boom?
Perhaps worth remembering what we all get from the BBC licence fee, which costs around 43p a day.

Ok, Twitter. We need your help. This beautiful young woman from Iraq Maryam Al Rukabi refused a marriage proposal. The suitor invaded her home at night and attacked her with acid. He is still free. With enough pressure and international attention, some justice could be brought.

I see a lot of this happening. It is awful to videotape people without their approval. I was a witness to one event when TV cameramen videotaped a survivor who returned from captivity and the family said clearly “don’t videotape” still they were on the TV. twitter.com/janearraf/stat…

I spoke to @abcnews's daily podcast 'The Signal' about the collapse in #Lebanon - how are some still managing, and how the lack of resources drove me (and many others) to leave. Thank you @StephenSmiley & @angelavoipierre for granting me this space. abc.net.au/radio/programs…

I get so utterly paralyzed when I'm reminded of the hatred and cruelty humans can visit on one another when I see the images and violence of Israeli settlers and their state against Palestinians. I find it hard to move or say anything. So much hatred married to so much power.

The UK has seen the verdict from the Cassation Court of the KRI in the case relating to five journalists and activists, as announced on 6 May 2021. We are concerned at a series of allegations of shortcomings in the circumstances of their detention and in the trial process.

More devastating news, more arrests of my Burmese friends and colleagues. This time in Thailand. It’s imperative that Thai authorities do not deport these journalists to Myanmar! They must understand the incredibly serious consequences they would face if they are sent back.

Another excellent and very responsible clarification from @GermanyInKRI concerning the court of cassation's decision. Please have a look to better understand how on very absurd charges the KRG courts have sentenced five journalists and activists for six years in jail.

We regret the court decision in #Erbil against 5 journalists and activists. So soon after #WorldPressFreedomDay, the decision is a worrying sign for freedom of the press and opinion in the Region of Kurdistan‑Iraq.

....Iraqi Kurdistan is blessed with a growing number of dedicated animal rights activists and this circus was not an example of their work.
...the bears, having grown up in captivity, are thought to have no chance of survival / they are surrounded by land mines, tourists, hunters and armed soldiers (some of them guarding the old Saddam Palace just above the release spot) all of whom are now at risk from each other...
With respect, this is a poor take. The man behind it owns wild animals at his house himself / the bears (that were not tagged) were released nearby bus loads of tourists on a mountain covered in mines / then crowds harassed the bears who returned to the same area confused... twitter.com/reuterspicture…
Dramatic and desperate race against time to reach a dozen trapped miners found alive a week after a blast at their gold mine in #Shandong Province. Initially the accident wasn't reported for 30 hours meaning rescue teams lost precious time to start their attempt to reach them...

Crucial thread. These killings aren't the stuff of history - they bring very real, daily, pain to the families left behind.

Trump pardoning these Blackwater goons overturns one of the few instances of any American facing justice for the wanton killing of innocent Iraqis. It’s enraging. It’s a scandal.
