You're right Rob. Too quiet if you ask me. But I think if people take a look at the recent glut of viagra spammers - they will shy away. I will get some security going on this forum asap.

Re: What's happening?: Support Groups

Postby indefinite » Tue Feb 15, 2011 3:50 am

Yeah, where is everyone? Spooky. Man, it's been scary & disturbing reading up on this Neo-Nazi War on the Poor & Unfit-for-work this last week.
Two things stand out to me (well, 3, but I can't voice that one on forums):
1. Surely all this evil has to be halted by a Judge somewhere - why is it taking so long?
2. Considering your statement "We are aware that the stress caused by the governments measures will increase the rate of suicides and mental distress. However, we wish to stress that IF WE WORK TOGETHER AND HELP EACH OTHER INDIVIDUALLY AND IN GROUPS, we will survive." : I'm wondering, why is this not happening, support groups being set up?
Myself, though in Lungdung, I'm so isolated I don't know anyone who's on my side and would accompany me to a Degradation & Elimination Ritual apptmt.

However I'd like to try get involved in a support group. I wonder how many people are allowed in to a WCA? Shouldn't groups of say 3-5 go along and try to match/counter the bullying?
I've meant to e-mail Coalition vs. Poverty about this - their citing of group support tactics in the time of the Great Depression - this is exactly what's needed.
I thought of going up to this Nazi HQ alone just to ask alone & vulnerable people if they'd like a witness but I'm too vulnerable & freaked myself (and sometimes scared of what I might do).
Far better to go in groups........that's what's needed it seems to me, not stickers (no disrespect).

The Nov. Sthwk.Mind newsletter said to look for updates to WCA Toolkit here - what happened to you guys? Are you formulating any concrete support plans as per your '....we will survive' statement? Don't take this as an attack - I'm just disappointed & bewildered no support groups and sane, humane Judge's rulings aren't happening - as Egypt's young bring down Goliath, yet Blighty stays asleep it seems......so weird......
Ok here we go......Unite and Fight......

A lot is happening - there's demos, meetings with politicians (ha!) and some great fundraising gigs. But there is far too much work to be done for the people doing stuff at the moment. One thing we need to do is get more organized and spread the burden. And more needs to be done reporting what is happening and what people are doing ONLINE. THIS SITE NEEDS A LOT OF HELP. So - VOLUNTEERS needed!

I will talk to myself.

Tomorrow morning I will demand an escorted walk by 1100.. Should it not happen I would not wish anyone to go out and smash any car worth more than £30,000, while making sure not to damage any other thing, person, animal or plant.

Finish by 1105.

I went to the Canary Island of La Gomera for a week on 26/3. I was activated by a workman and his mates just before i got on the plane. I realised I was King Of the World at about 1100 on 28/5. I thought of

" any man left on the Rio Grand is the king of the world
the king of the world
as far as I know"
Steely Dan - Countdown to Ecstasy (see Paradise forum)

I was walking in the tropical rainforest at the top of the island.
Geographical note: La Gomera is a small, lesser known CI 75 minutes by ferry from Los Christianos, Tenerife which is a 20 minute bus ride from South Tenerife (TFS) airport. It is volcanic, about 15 miles by 10, has few roads around the base because of ravines (barrancos) and a road straight over the top with excellent buses. The English take a bus the the top (windy. misty and cool), take a thin fleece or jumper) and walk down. I paid 20, 20, 20, 15, 50 and 50 euros for perfectly respectable rooms - I like a bit of luxury ( especially a bath) along the line. I will post full cost of a week's holiday later.

The Canary Islanders again I've been there twice before passed me unanimously as King of the World and I adopted the title (tongue slightly in cheek) upon my return to EMA (East Midlands Airport), where the bastard Customs and Revenue stole 4.4 kgs of tobacco from me.

I have been KOTW since then, and not been seriously challenged.

It is my tribunal today at 2.30. Is this a significant moment?

Anyway as only Mark is listening I'll sign off.

Take it easy.
