Direct action: What you can do.
With the ‘Coronavirus Act’ review and the ‘Consultation document on changes to Human medicine’ deadlines looming fast the bee in my bonnet has not been letting me rest. After attending the Trafalgar Square rally and being depressed by the numbers of conspiracy theories (sorry, but not all of us believe its Bill Gates, 5G, the NWO) being widely purported we decided to take a gentler approach. We produced a brief information flyer, a simple sign explaining who we are, and some open questions printed onto A4 sheets. Then we took a fold up table and 4 chairs and set up in Guildford High Street last Saturday. The idea was to invite people to start a conversation with us. We also had hi viz vests on with a ‘Stop the Coronavirus Act’ message on the backs. In 2.5 hours, we had 14 conversations. We were not accosted by any lockdown zealots, and we only had a brief run in with the ‘Town Rangers’ who asked us if we had public liability insurance for the table. We didn’t, it didn’t matter. We set up an email account for anyone who wanted to get in touch. If you would like to get more info about what we did, and get some ideas about how you can do your own, please contact us here: firstname.lastname@example.org. It seems to me if we could set up enough of these little spaces to chat, we might start to stem the fear and activate the British people.. or am I more deluded than I realise? At least the buzzing’s not so loud.
Please, I really don't want a raft of angry hate comments because I don't believe what you do. The important thing is that we all want our freedom restored, and we should be united in that.
