Twitter Web App : Yesterday The Green Party members across the country joined #TakeTheKnee protests

But it’s time for actions too. We’re fighting for:

🌱 An independent BAME #Covid19 report

🌱 Justice in our policing. An end to being singled out

🌱 A halt to sales of tear gas to the US

Twitter Web App : The Congestion Charge has actually been frozen ❄️since 2014, and the cost of motoring has fallen in the past decade. If London is to avoid a polluted, gridlocked car-led recovery, we need a charge that deters jumping in the car, and safer conditions for walking and cycling.

Twitter Web App : Transport for London is right to be increasing the congestion charge later this month, and I have written to support the changes with a few concerns. You can respond here: tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/…

iPhone : Coronavirus: Disproportionate number of BAME people fined. Sian Berry said: "It is not a coincidence that yet again we are seeing harsh police tactics being used more often against the black community" bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…

It's disappointing that the Met Commissioner became defensive rather than open to listening to the solutions Sian Berry was trying to provide. twitter.com/GreenLondonAMs…

iPhone : This could be our final hour or our finest hour.

A #GreenRecovery is the only way out of this crisis, Jonathan Bartley tells BBC News (UK).

Twitter for iPad : It’s unacceptable that 60 bus drivers have been spat at 😞

Thank you Caroline Russell for speaking up for transport workers.

Twitter for iPad : The legacy of American highways is that many of them tore through African American neighborhoods.

In city after city, the black residents who were left behind in their cut-up neighborhood were now walled off by these highways in "border vacuums." trib.al/4k3PgzK
