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.

Earth Strike in Nottingham

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.

Anti Prorogation rally and march

Two thousand people took part in this protest against the prorogation of Parliament.
Outstanding speech by Cllr. Angharad Roberts.
Some great wit and colour.
