I am 49. years old Latvian,I live and work in United Kingdom/ West Sussex/ since 2004.
I had very negative experiences in regard to deprivation of Liberties and Freedoms back home as or country was occupied by communists and our rights and freedoms were very limited, and those who dared to speak the truth and pursue it were accused of treason and deported to Stalin's gulag or sentenced to death. My grandparents suffered from regime just for being free spirited and speaking the truth and wanting to live life they knew to be right and good, the family was deported to the Gulag in 1949 for 10.years.
The current situation all over the world and in United Kingdom reminds me that time when I was not allowed to speak freely, to think, and to act out true happiness. It reminds me time when I had been told what is good for me, what books I am allowed to read and what music to listen.
I was 11-13.years when I felt that something is not right but did not questioned that as then nothing was questionable-you had to accept it.
How do I feel now?
I am grieving for loss of my way of LIFE.
It feels like I am reliving past negative experiences that had detrimental effects.
I am angered that once again I have to ask permission for my FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT TO BREATH, TO BE FREE TO THINK-TO SPEAK-TO EXPRESS MY-SELF – TO LIVE LIFE THE WAY I KNOW TO BE RIGHT AND GOOD FOR ME FOR MY COMMUNITY. I am angered about being mandated to wear face covering that diminishes my individuality,prevents me of functioning and I am not able to express myself in a way that IS NORMAL to me-smile and speak.
I am angered about plans to mandate vaccine. Vaccination is medical intervention and deep moral issu
