Signs of Hope – A continuing series May 14, 2021

Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.

Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently:

I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.

Any contributions this week?

Emotional reaction from Lakhvir Singh one of the men who was released by UK Border Force in Glasgow after the community came out to stop his deportation: https://twitter.com/PeterAdamSmith/status/1393159283999641603

This was posted in last weeks Signs of Hope too but definitely one of the more hopeful things to happen recently.

I see now that there’s also a stand alone post for this that I had missed, a sign of hope nonetheless!

It’s kind of brilliant. And agree completely. There’s something about it that’s heartening particularly in a time where activism has had, for necessary reasons, to dampen down a bit. Makes me think the next while could be more positive than many of us have feared.

The assembly in the north has put an end to the exemption of teaching from faith-based discrimination law. A motion sponsored by the UUP, but passed unanimously.

IGN employees speak out on Palestine.

John Oliver criticizes Israel.

This is seismic in US terms. Israel is beginning to lose the US. This is the beginning of the end.

I remember mid-90s US support for Israel was akin to English support for British Army in Northern Ireland circa 1985. Any deviation from orthodoxy was a similar heresy.
