It seems #NeverAgainIsNow hit a nerve & lots of people share my fury. So my question is #WhatsNext

What can we do to make a difference? 1/
I have some suggestions but if you have others, please add to this thread.

#NeverAgain means we need to stop this, together /2
If you’re in the USA or have an American bank account, donate time or money to these organisations

If you’re in the UK, follow @safepassageuk and donate to them or The Separated Child foundation to support unaccompanied refugee children /4
@safepassageuk Next #protest - we’ve already seen this week that if we raise our voices loud enough politicians have to listen. So write, tweet, call... /5
@safepassageuk If you’re in the UK sign the @libertyhq petition bit.ly/2idZlLp to stop indefinite detention of migrants /6
@safepassageuk @libertyhq Those who don’t learn from mistakes are condemned to repeat them. Let’s educate ourselves. Expertise isn’t elistist, it’s essential /7
@safepassageuk @libertyhq So here are some #ffs for experts: Historian @deborahlipstadt if you want to understand the causes of the Holocaust /8
@safepassageuk @libertyhq @deborahlipstadt But mapping the Holocaust onto modern USA isn’t a direct parallel. So for context of America First read the brilliant @sarahchurchwell /9
@safepassageuk @libertyhq @deborahlipstadt @sarahchurchwell She’s been saying it all along and @HillaryClinton was right, we are #StrongerTogether - let’s stop dehumanising the other /10
@safepassageuk @libertyhq @deborahlipstadt @sarahchurchwell @HillaryClinton Language matters. Words reverberate into actions. @MPTmagazine has been translating urgent voices into English since its creation. /11
@safepassageuk @libertyhq @deborahlipstadt @sarahchurchwell @HillaryClinton @MPTmagazine Everytime you hear someone dismiss refugees as animals or an ‘infestation’ remember that’s the language of Die Sturmer. Challenge it /12
@safepassageuk @libertyhq @deborahlipstadt @sarahchurchwell @HillaryClinton @MPTmagazine If someone misquotes the Bible, remind them that the most repeated phrase (36 times) is ‘Do not oppress the stranger’ /13
@safepassageuk @libertyhq @deborahlipstadt @sarahchurchwell @HillaryClinton @MPTmagazine ‘Love your neighbour’ appears much less. It’s easy to love someone like you; we need to be urged not to oppress those who are different /14
@safepassageuk @libertyhq @deborahlipstadt @sarahchurchwell @HillaryClinton @MPTmagazine But the hardest things are the most necessary. Silence might be safer, but saying nothing is what allows evil to flourish. /15
@safepassageuk @libertyhq @deborahlipstadt @sarahchurchwell @HillaryClinton @MPTmagazine These are just a few thoughts. If you have more suggestions please add to this thread. Let’s make the phrase #NeverAgain meaningful. /end
