Bruno Periera and Dom Philips were cruelly murdered for protecting the Amazon. @BorisJohnson, you must stand up to Bolsonaro and the violence he has enabled and encouraged in the Amazon. #JusticeForDomAndBruno
Our hearts are with the families & friends of Dom & Bruno - murdered for protecting the Amazon. The latest in a growing series of brutal attacks against Indigenous communities & their lands in Brazil. Bolsonaro has given the green light for this violence. #JusticeForDomAndBruno

Emma and Ben are both on hunger strike in UK prisons for 20 & 12 days respectively. @trussliz is today asking for political prisoners abroad to be released. There are some closer to home that could also be considered. They were only asking for warm homes insulatebritain.com/2-suppor鈥

Last week I used a single transit card to speed through the earth and sail through the air and cross the Bosporus. Now, spoiled as I was, Glasgow's pricey, disjointed public transport system seems even more shameful. heraldscotland.com/opinion/1鈥

Dumped building waste on walkway beside M77 in #Glasgow SW. This could be prevented by installing pillars at entrance ways to prevent vehicle access. @GlasgowCC
