A plea.

Inspired by a heart-felt post on a chums LJ. Here's something I was going to post on Facebook later, but I thought I'd do it now before I have to get back to work. UK-centric, but an interesting approach that DOES look like it could be effective.

Crowdfunder is here.

Do we really want the UK ruined and dragged into being a fascist satellite to Trump's America because people are believing fake news? Well, many of you reading this are already campaigning and fighting against this poison.

"Hate crime, racism and xenophobia are on the rise. And so is hostile media coverage towards some of the most vulnerable groups in our society. Editors have a strong incentive to run these harmful stories: it sells papers - and that means they can earn more from advertising."

And if you think this is of no interest to you, if you think this doesn't touch you, that you're not one of these vulnerable groups? You could be one day, hate crime has risen against the disabled, and we all fall into only 3 categories: the disabled, the not-yet-disabled and the dead.

"One of the most striking features of the annual figures is a 44% rise in hate crimes directed at people with disabilities, the numbers have doubled in four years." (From the BBC.)

If you cannot afford to pledge, if you are too ill to march, there are other things you can do, small things.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
