KEEP BRITAIN FREE
Hello. Here's the place for those of us living in Surrey. I'm over in the Far East (Croydon).
On Sunday, 18th October, we staged small-scale local events in Guildford and Croydon with the aim of engaging with the public. In handing out leaflets, I believe we were successful in raising awareness of lockdown dissent among the more open-minded members of the public. A full report from the event can be read on Lockdown Sceptics (scroll down to 'Local Lockdown Protests'): https://lockdownsceptics.org/2020/10/19/
We hope to stage more similar events across more Surrey towns in future. If you're interested in participating or would like any advice on staging something similar in your area, please get in touch with me via the Members' Chat.
Hi there, I’m in Richmond. It’d be very nice to join the group.
For the benefit of any new members, the Surrey group has met twice now. While we're still small - only eight of us have met physically so far - we are expanding. Anyone who'd like to join us should register their interest here and they'll be added to the private chat.
Portsmouth this Saturday. Meeting point is now the Guildhall
For anyone near hampshire
We had a protest in Southampton yesterday. There were only a few of us. But we made a LOT of noise and got quite a bit of interest. We had a few banners and gave out some leaflets. There is a new telegraph group to try and get a bit more momentum and get some more protests going.
I've also been making quite a lot of headway. People are starting to question things, at least far more than back in March/April. I find if you calmly and clearly express your views and (more importantly) why you think that, the research you've done etc. and still remain respectful if someone has a different opinion that works well.
Hi EG, I think Locksley's the one to do the group chat adding. Good to hear you've been making small headway. I often find it to be hard work, though I'm sure it's possible!
Hi all, redhill resident here. I've been trying to do my bit on an interpersonal level and making some small headway persuading people I know, but as we backslide towards lockdown number two my cynicism about the efficacy of protests seems like a luxury I'll have to give up. Would appreciate being added to the local groupchat, thanks in advance.
Thanks Locksley, I've just noticed the chat add.
Welcome Ahdel and Howard to the Surrey group. I've added you both to the group chat. I've added you, too, Jon, in case you want to keep up to speed with what we're doing.
Hi, I'm in Sutton. Been a member of KBF for a while but only recently saw the forum.
Hi Ahdel, not sure if you're the only one. There are certainly others nearby. Locksley's the man to ask really, though I follow this thread.
I'm In Richmond upon Thames, am I the only one or are there other KBF members anywhere close by?
hi Zack ... I got your message via email that wont let me answer ... I’m in Streatham
Can I join the Group Chat? I'm in Croydon.
hi ... I’m north of Croydon but would welcome the opportunity to join and meet
Good re 29th. It's still best to check with Locksley re details of the Surrey meet.
thanks. I'll be heading up to trafalgar sq on 29th. I saw rykas mentioned somewhere, but no time or day...
Hi, there's a Surrey group meeting - I think this weekend. You could check KBF South and then KBF Surrey for more details... just realised, we're writing in the Surrey group - doh! It's probably best to check with Locksley.
Hi I'm in Guildford and would like to add my voice to the movement against the madness. I am not interested in 'why' the world has gone mad. There are so many different opinions that I think it is divisive. What I would like to see is the focus on ending the fear, and getting folk, one by one, to start actually seeing what is happening. The death rate in Sweden, the UK and Italy are between 0.057% and 0.061% of the population. These figures have been consistent since August 1st. After the lack of social distancing on the beaches, and at protests over the last 6 weeks, deaths from covid in the uk have dropped to single figures on some days. If this was really a deadly disease we would see so many more deaths. If anyone has been partaking in the eat out to help out you will see that the measures that are being taken to keep things virus free are completely laughable. If we're not seeing increases in hospital admissions and deaths by the end of this month we have to be able to convince folk that there is nothing to fear. Its a mild disease, that is just out there like many other mild diseases (unless you are life limited or unlucky) and it really, truly doesn't warrant the devastation the global hysteria has elicited. There is so much more to say.
