Business-as-usual is a death march, it's not about "the environment" - we are heading for the horror of social collapse. Scientists around the world know this. Some from #ScientistRebellion have been arrested 8 times since @IPCC_CH@twitter.com report. Now or never, we need more. #JustStopOil

Good overview of the Belgian gov's data retention proposal, forcing platforms to provide metadata to authorities. This is important as it would result in a ban of those that don't - or can't - like Signal. As this proposal could spread to other EU member states, it needs to be fought at every turn, before it is too late edri.org/our-work/belgium-want
