I wanted to share news of a Social issue with some positive aspects. It appears that Spanish Locksmiths and Fire Fighters are answering to their conscience and not the banks.

The article I read first stated that an eighty five year old lady was being evicted from her flat and that neighbours were defending her - the Fire Fighters joined in - instead of breaking the door down. This story filled me with hope and I really want it to become viral.

This link is only one of many. I felt so much hope when I read the first article - so much hope.

Much Peace...

This is really great, I wonder if things would get to a point where they'd play out similarly in the US. I bet it'll go on like it is until a critical point is reached, where the inaction caused by the "It couldn't happen to me or mine" phenomenon is replaced by a "Something like this happened to me or mine" mentality in most people, as more and more "ordinary americans" are affected or rendered destitute.

I feel like I've been seeing more of this sort of thing lately, though it could be confirmation bias. Besides this article, I'm also thinking of the town meeting in Buffalo where the people were so impassioned about their rights and the government reps were so clearly wrong-footed in the face of public participation. I also saw a video recently of a streaker or something on a football pitch getting tackled down by 4 cops/security personnel, who proceeded to brutalize him, at least until hundreds from the crowd poured onto the pitch and sent the cops fleeing.

A little civil disobedience warms the heart

You are so right and I love the example of the streaker and the police. It just goes to show that when people come together for the common good - anything is possible. We don't even need every single person - just the majority.

I would love to see every single Locksmith and every single Fire Fighter on the globe refuse to evict people. Add to that the Police as well and then add the local council rangers and then add ...

I am also pleased that it is professionals who are conscientiously objecting - this indicates that qualified personnel cannot all be sacked. We need professionally trained personnel for many many trades and services. This is the beginning and I feel that it will be happening more and more and more.

It all starts with the thought that it can be achieved - adding actions makes it unbeatable/unstoppable/impervious and any other descriptor you would to add.

Much Peace...
