    Keep up the good work! I watched Caroline Lucas’s brilliant speech in full yesterday, and Jenny Jones – can’t believe they were both almost arrested! And Caroline just for wanted to share an omelette! The World has gone crazy!
    I live the fact that you’ve all been peaceful – shows you don’t need violence to get your point across….shame the Police have been so heavy handed.

    Shame on Cameron for closing down Parliment Square and other places nearby where you Guys can PEACEFULLY protest!

    Well done! Keep your spirits up! Namaste xxx 💞
