February Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Since 1st February Britain is officially out of the EU. Crippen mocks the "Boris Law" and his string of lies, while there are still lots of question marks to be answered about what will follow up. Inhumane rights seems to be approach most governments are focusing towards lately, not only the UK. 
Britons unhappy with the Brexit move are being offered the Stay European possibility, were they are hoping to lobby to maintain some rights for some www.stayeuropean.org 

In the main time the racist and discriminating Windrush scandal is continuing disrupting lives. At PMQs this week Corbyn suggested that if these black boys are being deported due to minor offences, perhaps a blonde, white one, referring to Boris and his offences, should be deported too?
More evidence of corruption is surfacing at least for the public to be aware. Do we know which are the good and bad guys?

Clarissa Pinkola Estés's words, keep on appearing from time to time, encouraging us all to keep up: "Do not lose heart. We were made for these times...".
Yet the bombarding of negative news can have a detrimental effect of our health and wellbeing too. Do remember to switch off from all these from time to time, without sense of shame or guilt. With St Valentine just passed, rather than thinking about the cheesiness of the commercial day that some make of it, do get reminded of the importance of self love and self care EVERYDAY. Please, be kind and gentle with yourself always as you set the standards for others to treat you in that same way. Catch here some love from Banksy!
 
Join us on Monday 17th Feb @ LARC, 6:30-8:30pm for our monthly FEEL meeting; we'll have a sad light box to bring more light into the present darkness.
Currently we are getting roughly 10 hrs of daylight in London, if and when lucky to see the sun for a small fraction of that time.
The sad lamp brings a little comfort to those that tend to be lethargic during the Winter months. 
Our printed Loonies Proverb poster has now been kindly sent by the Bethlem Gallery, after the closing of their Art & Protest exhibition.
Bringing it along for those that had no chance to visit Bethlem.
