@jlfreeman6: This powerful image is made from the names of Uyghur writers, poets, and intellectuals who have disappeared into China's internment camps for Muslims. I know so many people on this list. I think of them every day.

Please RT. Spread the word in any way you can. #Uyghur https://t.co/4HZXQMypx6

@jasonhickel: "Ultimately, what we call 'the economy' is the material expression of our relationship with each other and with the rest of the living world. Do we want it be a relationship of extraction and exploitation, or a relationship of reciprocity and care? That's the question."

@xujnx: The coffin bears the largest number of filial-son stories (10) on a single object known to us from 6 c. This emphasis on the theme of family reverence reflects Yuan Rong's virtue as extolled in the epitaph: "his nature shows perfect filial piety ...devoted to serving the elders." https://t.co/zoQevNMrP5

@iingwen: China's disregard for the will of Hong Kongโ€™s people proves that โ€œone country, two systemsโ€ is not viable. Many things have changed in #HongKong since 1997, but #Taiwanโ€™s commitment to supporting those #HKers who want freedom & democracy has never changed. #StandWithHongKong https://t.co/1eZBJ46g4e

@jasonhickel: While billionaires are milking this crisis, global poverty is rising, and the poorest 50% are losing up to $4.4 billion in income *each day*. The devastation is staggering, and, with a fairer distribution of income, completely avoidable. https://t.co/uufzKYMXAb

@xujnx: My posts on Shimao attracted a bit attention. In fact, also on the east edge of the steppe, in 6th c AD, arose a city which can be truly called the first cosmopolitan metropolis in Chinese history. It's the capital city of Northern Wei, founded by proto-Mongolian Xianbei people. https://t.co/R6MdG1fkky
