Twitter Web App : josie duffy rice and I had a conversation about what it means to Defund the Police. Please check it out. I think it gets to a lot of the questions that I am asked about the what, where, who, how and why of police abolition.

iPhone : Ever yell at your screen when yet another reporter says violent protesters? Us too. So we at Mijente decided to clarify our position: All Protesters are Good Protesters. Protest by any means necessary is our tactic. Violence is theirs. We will win. docs.google.com/document/d/1lt…

Twitter Web App : NEW PETITION: This is important, please sign: action.mijente.net/petitions/sant… via @conmijente

Twitter Web App : If these companies won't listen to the public, academics, students, their own workers, maybe they'll listen to their investors.

It's been a long campaign. It will be longer still & there's no guarantee they'll cut their contracts.

But pressure is mounting.

#NoTechforICE

Twitter Web App : Glass Lewis, a leading firm advising investors on how to vote shares, wrote that Thomson Reuters has not provided enough info on "its human rights considerations, particularly given the controversial nature of its association w/ICE."

Their clients have *$25 trillion* in assets.

Twitter Web App : We’ve been trying to dismantle the tech to ICE pipeline for two years now.

We've found so many allies in so many places. The news yesterday is so significant for that reason: Now, even those interested in the bottom line are taking notice.

Twitter Web App : Tech workers joined us. Workers at Amazon, Microsoft, GitHub, Chef, & others signed letters demanding they drop ICE.

Workers at Palantir itself have begged the company to cut its tiesβ€”but management refuses, & many have left the company in protest.

Twitter Web App : Thousands of students agreed, pledging not to work at Palantir b/c of its work for ICE.

They've targeted recruiters, dropped Palantir from their CS societies, & even launched an anti-Palantir scholarship for students *not* to take $$$ from the company.

Twitter Web App : We got Grace Hopper, Lesbian Who Tech, & the Privacy Law Scholars Conference to drop Palantir as a sponsor.

Hundreds of academics signed onto demands, convinced that Palantir's work enabled human rights abuses & that their institutions should cut ties. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Twitter Web App : We released research reports meticulously documenting how companies like Palantir & Amazon profit from ICE, laying the groundwork for academics, students, & others to take us seriously when we told them these firms were crucial to ICE's mission.

Twitter Web App : We took a cage to Burning Man to get in front of tech workers taking drugs & partying in the desert, reminding them that their tech was being used at another desert, on the border, to detain & deport.

Twitter Web App : We've gotten academics, students, tech workers, & more to pledge to work against Palantir, Amazon, Thomson Reuters, & others who enable ICE's human rights abuses.

But if the bottom line is being questioned, this is now a new chapter.

Twitter Web App : We're sharing this in hopes it'll be useful for you as you map out your campaigns.

We've gone in every direction, found every group we think could be convinced that ICE is growing its power w/Silicon Valley's help, & pushed them to take action.

Twitter Web App : Yesterday, a full 30% of independent shareholders in Thomson Reuters told the firm that its work for ICE is a massive liability.

Investors essentially said ICE is bad business & could risk their investment.

#NoTechforICE is winning over the money men.

Twitter Web App : Could you imagine the number of teachers we could hire with $114.5bn?

The number of homes we could build?

The nurses, doctors & medical care we could provide to our people?
