Help #FreeKiranOpal - Ask Twitter to Re-instate This Account
Hey all... this is Kiran. Over the last few years, I have shared hundreds of thousands of resources, books, videos, articles, information that thousands of people have found useful. I have gotten millions of views, been on podcasts and youtube channels, written and have supported countless people via private messages - people who were suffering and needed help in some way or another. I've reached people all over the world and helped raise consciousness in working class people, people of colour, poor people, LGBTQ people, women, people in and from the global south, and many more, about the systemic issues that oppress us all. Issues like war, white supremacy, colonialism, capitalism, racism, sexism, etc. Today I got suspended because I got into a heated argument with a white man who was making racist comments towards my friend and me - someone who claims to be for "Free Speech" but thinks a refugee and woman of colour talking back to him in a way that does no damage to white men like him at all was reason to report and suspend my account.
And he did it on the day of mourning for the indigenous people on the land he is a settler colonialist ("Thanksgiving").
I have emailed Twitter to ask my account @KiranOpal to be reinstated. If you agree my account should be reinstated, please sign this petition and I will forward it to Twitter as well.
Please keep www.kiranopal.com in your bookmarks in the meantime - I'll be putting up my best threads from Twitter and new posts there.
I'm also on Instagram @KiranWriting.
