In recent months, indeed, in the last few years, there has been much talk on the news and in mainstream media, using words like PROJECT FEAR, & Fake News and we have had seen things like the Leverson inquiry
The wikileaks releases, which exposed war crimes, torture, human rights abuses & saw the organization founder himself become a political refugee, presently living in political asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
Government crackdowns on whistleblowers and the consequences on journalists, of telling the truth, in light of the Hillsborough disaster reflect a frightening time for those who believe in freedom of speech and expression and human rights. Now with the new United States Administration,& Mr. Trump wielding his particular brand of fascist and divisive views it’s hard not to be a reminder of the words of Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) said,
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
I don’t know about you, but I know that this sends a shiver of fear through me, my stress levels have been through the roof and I have been bouncing up and down the tightrope of mania induced by stress as a result of this for months.
This has resulted in quite a debilitating and manic phrase which has left me feeling ill again, triggering paranoia, and actual physical pain. And as a human being, diagnosed with mental illness, who lives with the stigma of this condition, and who has been subject of human rights abuses, and injustice, I am presently ill, physically and mentally, haven’t slept properly for weeks, & have in constant physical pain in my neck and chest and result of anxiety attacks, dire mood swings and uncontrollable bouts of random weeping.
I CAN’T BREATH, its no joke, I am once again fearful for my life and I question my own sanity.
I can assure you the impact on my family has been devastating, I am worried for my ten-year-old grandson, believe me, Project fear exists, it’s real, and I like many others are victims of its terrorism at the hand of the united kingdom & US governments & their allies. I blame I name them, and, YES, I say shame on them.
Under the leadership of Teresa May and her predecessor David Cameron the people of the United Kingdom are being brought to their knees, and silently killed by stealth human rights abuses, which is Fascist by any other name. These monsters who prepared the groundwork for this strategy and agenda of fear and propaganda and destruction are a danger to humanity and our planet, beautiful planet.
I have had enough, I know it is impacting on my ten-year-old grandson, and I know he is not the only child it is impacting on, it is impacting negatively on children around the world, devastated by wars, Syria, Yemen Palestine Iraq, and now they have an Isamaphobic ban on the citizens of 7 countries by the recently elected leader of the USA, who has singled out to stigmatize and inflame the fires of racist hatred and bigotry against, 7 countries. These same 7 countries that were cited by General Wesley Clark as planned targets of attack by the US government. This is terrorism, a long term agenda since 2011, its project fear, it’s real, they’re coming for you next.
I will not stand by and watch fascism ruin the lives of more children or adults who are affected in so many ways by the reality of geopolitics 2017.
With this in mind I have been in touch with my grandsons school who I hope I can persuade in the name of humanity, to begin a project related to the theory of the 6 degrees of separation to raise awareness of humanitarian and racial connection, to initiate an idea based on a Native American prophesy accredited to the Hopi, Cree and Cherokee tribes, which says,
when the earth is ravaged, & mother natures soul seems broken ,
when all that is unique on earth is dying, a new tribe of people shall rise,
from many colours, creeds, classes & diversities of humanities shadowed souls,
& by their deed & actions, they shall mend the errors of yeaster years failings
and humanitiy will live in harmony…
andy shall be known as the rainbow warriors…
So with inspiration taken from the words of wisdom of the indigenous peoples of long ago, I would like to begin a movement of uniting nations and peoples, as a part of my own ongoing creative arts project that I call The Hethen Project, which I have been working on since 2010.
The project grew from my health, social welfare & social policy studies at Tcat campus of Wolverhampton University in Telford. It was and is a health promotion strategy to help young people living with, and survivors of mental and social health care policy failures.
The objective, To raise awareness of the six degrees of separation theory, as an anti-discrimination awareness project, with an aim to raise awareness and achieve positive health outcomes to,
1, combat bullying,
2.prevent stress and depression that may lead to long term social exclusion and isolation which may develop into the risk of harm from addictions or behaviors in young people within communities.
3. raise awareness of the negative impacts of discrimination resulting from religious, racial, sexual, gender or other discriminatory & social inequalities & inadequacies resulting from poor social policy & non-inclusive holistic mental, emotional & social health education.
The strategy would seek to raise awareness of international harmony “one love one family” in partnership with schools, family, & multicultural liaisons within community groups via the 6 degrees of separation promotion objective, in order to break down the barriers that create discrimination, stigmatization, and isolation.
Rainbow warrior clans /tribes would develop creative, holistic arts, sports & recreational promotion projects, devised, developed & created by group members with an aim to involve inclusive cooperation of families & communities to promoted through social media, street performance &, word of mouth, peaceful & non-violent solutions to address discrimination, & inequalities that create the conditions that allow poor mental, emotional, spiritual, and indeed physical health outcomes to develop in young people to which lead to long term harm and emotional distress.
Thus preventing young people reaching their full potential, and effecting long term relationships within the wider aspects of their personal & social development at home & in the wider community, that could lead to anti-social behaviors self-harm, risk or harm to others, and or addictions that are encompassed under the umbrella of mental health conditions or illnesses.
.1 in 4 people are affected by mental health issues created by stigmas and taboos that create personal and social discriminations.
“Rainbow Warrior Clans or tribes” would explore, reflect and critical analysis historic and current events that lead to negative health and social impacts across the spectrum from cradle to grave with an aim to breaking down the walls and barriers that prevent harmony within communities, thus promoting self and public awareness, creating positive health & social outcomes thought creative & recreational activities with an aim to promoting positive multicultural and inclusive outcomes which help maintain & promote positive mental health outcomes.
Young, people would be responsible in all aspects of the running of the group giving them a say, and empowering them, thus developing a sense of self-worth & an understanding of social harmony & empowering them to lead the way into a safe balanced harmonious future, free from risk of harm or at very least empowered with understanding of social discriminations and inequalities that may cause harm while encouraging them to develop managing and life skills that lower the risk of poor mental or emotional health or social exclusion.
I believe this would result in safer mental, emotional & physical health outcomes for all from both a personal & public health perspective, which would result in long term positive health projections across all sectors of socio, Ecco, economic and global growth for our children’s future.
I invite you to get involved with this initiative via schools inter-community faith groups and non-religious groups and organizations across communities, reach out to each other from within and outwith your community and comfort zone offers a hand in peace end the violence against humanity, we are all brothers and sisters, we are one family the family of humanity.
