Met the @refugeetales participants today walking in #solidarity with #refugees and #detainees from St.Albans to Westminster, sharing tales highlighting the stories and experiences of #asylumseekers refugees and detainees at free #artsevents every evening along the route brilliant that @aceagrams are supporting amazing initiatives such as this
CARAD recently presented at the event "Support Life After Trauma" hosted by ASeTTS, in support of the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims, and those who seek refuge from persecution, torture and displacement. During the event we heard many inspriring stories about ways in which people have been supported to rebuild thier lives after experiecing torture and truama. We also heard about how Australia's immigration policies often exacerbate and cause further trauma. The theme of CARAD's presentation was "Being an Advocate for Change," and focused on the ways everyone can be part of creating a more welcoming and supportive community for people seeking safety. Thank you for opportunity to participate in this important discussion. . . . . . . . . . . . . #CompassionInAction #CARAD #Welcome #EatShareConnectGIVE #RefugeesWelcome #Refugees #ThankYou #InternationalPerth #Perth #PerthWA #PerthNotForProfit #PerthGives #PerthVolunteers #PerthFoodies #AsylumSeekers #Detainees #GIVE #Volunteers #NotForProfit #BringThemHere #LetThemStay
I just wrote this #poem today. It's totally unrevised, but I don't care. Reading about pregnant #detainees shackled at the wrists, ankles and BELLIES has so disgusted me that I wanted to put this out there. Women are having #miscarriages because of this treatment and not receiving care afterwards. America, what is happening to us? Remember, too, that female #prisoners in the US are routinely shackled during labor and delivery. This is not an anti-abortion poem; it is a pro-child poem. #immigrant #immigrationreform #poetry #miscarriage (The references in the beginning of the poem are very personal and refer to my own miscarriages.) #anyasilver #anyasilverpoet
Sunday’s #interfaith service of #solidarity with the #detainees in Sheridan. Hearts to God, hands to work.
It is so heart-warming to see how people from all over the world have come together to save and help the children trapped in a cave in Thailand. It is heart-breaking to know that their are other children ripped from their parents in a strange land, after fleeing horrendous conditions in their homeland, not knowing if or when they'll see their parents again. #humanity #weareone #immigrantchildren #thaicaverescue #justice #thairescue #immigration #immigrationreform #loveoneanother #detainees
Today was a beautiful day. On short notice, I went to speak at a juvenile detention facility I was in as a kid. It felt so good to be able to be a pillar of hope for youth trying to weather their storm even in the midst of my very own. I was able to effortlessly connect with the youth on a level most cannot. It was such a blessing to have such an opportunity like this. They all left inspired, encouraged, motivated and very thankful. One of the youth told me I “need to take this international” because I need to reach more people lol! I just might 😉 Thank you so much for everything, Whitney and Kelsey! I’d do it again in a heartbeat 💛
@isabellabcm_ and I have moved into our second (more spacious) home and we’re super happy! Sadly, for these furry muppets, this is the closest they’ll get to being outside for 2 weeks. #detainees

On this day, five years ago, my dad got arrested by Assad regime in Syria. I don't know how or why I decided to start counting the days of his absence. It has been 1827 days since he left the world we know. Time doesn't just pass normally. I resist pain with numbers. I resist forgetting with memory. I tried different ways to deal with pain but nothing worked. Counting days is my way to keep up hope, to tell myself, the world, and life: "I know my dad is alive and I'm waiting for him." Great pain can't be defeated. However, it can be reshaped. This is the core of what I'm trying to do. – Wafa, Families for Freedom "أنا لم أكبر في غيابك أبي لم أفهم الصبر، ولم أُتقن الانتظار أنا تلك الطفلة المسكونة بالصور الكثيرة الحيّة خلف النافذة الواسعة والمفجوعة بالسؤال: كيف يُقتَل الفجر بقذيفة دبابة؟ هو أكثر الوقت إيلاماً أبي، على حافة الغياب الجديد، يخذلني قلبي وقدماني بحزن ذات السنوات الست أفكر: هل غيّرت العتمة شكل عينيك والابتسامة؟ لا يتوقف هذا العالم عن الدوران في رأسي، يضيق بي صدري ويكبرُ عليّ القهر بداخلي طفلة حزينة، تخاف الوقت والنوافذ الواسعة تحترفُ، مثلي، تأمل السقف المرتفع وتبكي طويلاً صوت أب لا افهمُ غيابَه تستنزفني ذات السنوات الست يا الله، وعبثاً أحاولُ جعلها تنام الليلة أيضاً." وفا – عائلات من أجل الحرية #FamiliesForFreedom #freethedetainees #freesyria #Syria #freedom #justice #Detainees #savetherest

This FABRICATED IMMIGRANT CRISIS is so Trump can reward his generous campaign donors! https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/five-reasons-boca-private-prison-company-geo-group-is-evil-9967258 @Regrann from @beardlogic - The two largest #privateprison contractors in the United States, #GEOGroup and #CoreCivic , house thousands of #immigrant #detainees across the country. These corporations now face allegations that they force immigrant detainees to perform #unpaidlabor (#slavery ) inside their facilities. Since President #Trump took office, immigrant detainees have brought five separate #humantrafficking  and forced laborlawsuits against these two private #prison companies. (An earlier case was filed in 2014.) The lawsuits allege that GEO Group and CoreCivic compelled the detainees to work cleaning toilets, showers and communal housing units without pay and under threat of punishment. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/who-has-most-to-gain-from-trumps-immigration-policies-private-prisons/2018/06/29/4ae9c6a8-7a4d-11e8-aeee-4d04c8ac6158_story.html?sw_bypass=true&utm_term=.8331cf773c46
Standing at the start of yesterday’s Families Belong Together March in Atlanta, all my attention was drawn up to the faces pressed against the window slots of the detention center. ACDC is a 1,300+ bed facility managed by Atlanta DoC; they contract with ICE to house between 300 and 400 (sources differ on the current number) immigrant detainees on any given day. The ACLU and others have documented violations of due process for detainees, dangerously under equipped medical and mental health staffs, patterns of physical and verbal abuse from corrections officers, and other offenses inside ACDC. ___________________________________ Follow Metro Atlanta Democratic Socialists of America who are occupying space outside of ACDC pushing the city of Atlanta to stop working with ICE and to shut down ACDC and repurpose the building.

Did you wake up afraid this morning? Did you wake up separated from your family? Did you wake up detained while seeking asylum? If you didn’t, then you are free to help those that did. How we treat the most vulnerable among us is who we truly are as a nation. And if you want to come from a $ stand point. GEO, a private company makes a profit by detaining asylum seeking individuals (These are NOT criminals) with OUR TAX DOLLARS when there are more economic alternatives that are also kinder. #floridaimmigrantcoalition #protest #detainees #humanrights

#liberallogic #liberalprivilege the #laws against #illegalaliens are already on the book but they were just ignored #presidenttrump 🇺🇸💥🇺🇸💥🎉❤️❤️💝 is #enforcing the law n they call him #racist , nobody had ever called him racist before he ran for office. The #corruptedmedia no longer reported the news, my local newspaper said among the recent #invaders so many other #nationalities there was a story if many #Brazilians claiming #asylum from what? I just came back from Brazil there was no war, no killing no visible sign of any unrest they were #economicmigrants , #zika a contagious disease still exist there. If we let all those scumbags JN, we will become a 3rd world in no time as they all #breed like rabbits stressing out resources. 1600 #detainees were sent to #jail in SoCal they were full of #scabies n #tuberculosis many are #Indians who don’t speak English n they refused order from the female jail guards. why do the #despicable demokkkrats want to kill us, many strains of #tuberclebacillus are drug resistant n can kill us. People from #hellholes were built differently they survive these deadly diseases better, #Americans are ill equipped to fight them because it’s too clean in America n the body has not had to fight n develop antibodies to be #immune to so many virus bacteria from #tropicalcountries . On so many level it’s wrong to have #openborder .

Going back to work is a big step for any new mother. Even as a work-from-home freelancer, the mental shift I had to make to focus on work felt like a panic dream in which you realize you didn’t graduate from high school and have to take a test to get your diploma, and you try to access the lost but necessary information hidden in the recesses of your mind. Maintaining focus was nearly impossible between the sleep deprivation, half my brain still dedicated to my baby and the effort of trying to learn or figure out something new for the gig. For immigrant parents, the stakes of overcoming “mom brain” are indescribably high: compromised critical thinking during an interview or even working with their own representation may mean losing an opportunity to find their missing children, failing to be granted asylum, and being sent back to a situation so dire that it was worth the risk of months of travel and all one’s money and belongings as well as possible family separation. 🌑🌑🌑 Can you imagine working and researching to build a case that will save your life and the lives of your children while you have no home, your children have been taken from you to unknown undisclosed locations, AND while you are being detained in dangerously substandard conditions? 🌑🌑🌑 Today’s action item: locate your nearest immigrant detainment center and research its conditions. For my fellow Angelenos, check out the Victorville facility Federal Correctional Complex in the news to find out how it is treating or rather unable to treat detainees who have sought asylum (NOT a crime!). They are not only being put at risk medically and being placed with medium security prisoners who may target them - they are also being denied contact with representation. Call FCC and/or Congressman Paul Cook to pressure them to allow access to the legal services they deserve, and/or consider a donation to ImmDef, a local social justice law firm whose executive director is showing up in person at the facility to provide free legal services to detainees there. ✔️ They’ve got a lot of work to do under terrible circumstances. If we can help lighten the load even a little bit, we should.

👆 TAP IF NO SOUND 👆🙏🙏🙏"#LivininaWorld (#TheyDidntMake )" from 1989's eternally relevant, '#JanetJacksons #RhythmNation1814 ' by #JanetJackson . It's getting so crazy out here that staying up on current events is a depressing affair. Family is supposed to be the bedrock of humanity, and youth is the jewel of life. So how is it that Nationalism/Nativism has found center stage again? It pales by comparison, and is selfishness in its most toxic form. Our government has become recklessly cruel, and absolutely fine to be so. I feel both sad and angry. But as always, music is my escape, I share a bit of it with whomever cares to click ....

There was no hidden message, it was clearly written. Melania's visit was nothing more than a PR stunt, and her message seen as she walked away, was a true revelation of her feelings and intentions. Out of all the designer clothes in her closet, she did not just randomly select this $40 jacket and toss it on. What we NEED to be aware of however, is what is really going on outside of this story. The PR stunt was never intended to show good face by visiting the detention centers, this was nothing more than a distraction tactic. Melania is a willing pawn and taking the attacks and attention away from the real issues, and on to her choice of clothing. The truth remains that Trump's manufactured executive order in effect changed nothing. There are still thousands of children being held in centers separated from their parents. The plan calls for indefinite detention of families. Warehouses are being converted into jails, families are being torn apart and separated, and the public continue to pay attention to the wrong things. . . . #trump #familyseparation #immigration #immigrants #detainees #detentioncenters #melaniatrump #ireallydontcare #ireallydocare #payattention #storybehindthestory #distraction #deflection
Dear Mister President: Suffer the Little Children - # #borderpatrol #detainees #separatingfamilies #immigrationreform - https://www.laprogressive.com
Drivers do a double take after activists change a @1800GOTJUNK billboard from "We make junk disappear" to "We make kids disappear - I.C.E." As anger over the family separation battle engulfs the country, did the activists go too far? How they pulled off the high-flying stunt, and why it won't be their last. Tonight at 11 from ABC7 Eyewitness News.
