Supporting the Hong Kong protestors from Nottingham

Angharad Roberts said “Glad to speak at this morning’s rally for #HongKongProtests in #Nottingham. Moving to hear the speeches and songs of so many young Hong Kong campaigners.”

I spoke to say that Britain and Nottingham have worked to develop partnerships with China, but the treatments of Muslims in China and of protestors in Hong Kong iss setting us back.
Thought the Sino-British Joint Declaration leaflet was particularly clear.

Jess Phillips, Birmingham MP, launching her book in Nottingham, at the Contemporary, and hosted by Five Leaves.

Jess kept an audience of 200 people engrossed for 90 minutes, conveying calm, experience of life, and soul. 

Good values; and encouraging people to join the Labour Party.
Her book is called “Truth to Power”.

Pleased to explain how Nottingham has met environmental challenges in the past and has set itself a challenging one for the future – carbon neutrality by 2028.

Positive coverage everywhere, including BBC East Midlands Today.
Kinda unusual.

Nice to be part of something that what protested about across the planet.

But a bit too much to expect many kids to attend.
We’ve spent years drilling into schools that they must ensure children attend and that they are responsible for child safety.  
And notable that there were a few parents around.

So what if the way to outdo a believer of an authoritarian ideology and regime is to make them realise that what they believe is ridiculous by showing them the outcome of their believes and make them unbelief?
Not that we have any need for that kind of approach, clearly.

Neat play in the studio at the Lace Market Theatre. Go see – before tickets for Saturday sell out.
