I used to be the kind of average middle class citizen that believed in government and supporting our national leaders.
I have always voted and enouraged others to participate in the democratic process (and will continue to do so).
But now I am beginnjng to wonder if I even live in a democracy.
Doesn’t this scare anyone else?
Right now our government is putting into law what we are allowed to protest or not.
And this is not just about Israel, it’s about weapons, tobacco and fossil fuels. Read this from the independent:
“Under the plan all publicly funded institutions will lose the freedom to refuse to buy goods and services from companies involved in the arms trade, fossil fuels, tobacco products or Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank….
…The only exemption will be UK-wide sanctions decided by the Government in Westminster.”
We live in worrying times.
