With reference to my blog post yesterday, I “slept” in St Andrew’s Square last night. I had difficulty actually sleeping because of yobs shouting this kind of thing as they walked through/past/jumped over the fence, seeking trouble: “Get a job, you f@~*ing lazy scum”. I heard the “love police” (the volunteer security people – lovely guys!) patiently diffusing situations and escorting people off the site.
(No wonder people don’t get up early – it isn’t quiet enough to fall asleep until 4 a.m. or so!)
The “I’m-a-hard-working-taxpayer-and-you’re-a-lazy-parasite” lobby don’t realise we are doing this for them. It’s URGENT that we effectively explain why we are demonstrating, i.e. what is wrong with the world and how it might be fixed. Please consider using the three points I suggested raising with people in my previous blog post. If you haven’t watched the two very short videos yet, or read the short paragraph on CEO pay, then please do so. It will take ten minutes in total, I promise! This is solid, researched stuff you can ask people to check!
