Debbie Hicks reminded us to Keep it Cash – if cash is taken away we can be controlled via online banking.
Debbie is a former lecturer and teacher of politics and social sciences to A level and undergraduate students.
Debbie started her career running a busy Labour MP’s office in the House of Commons and working at Labour head office. Debbie also worked briefly for the Home Office and Prison Service. She has worked on general and local election campaigns for the Labour Party, run for office for labour and been a vice chair. In 2017 she left labour to take up grass roots actions to engage with working class communities, notably campaigning for the rights of the homeless.
For the last two years Debbie has been one of the key activists that helped start actions to resist the attack on our rights during the lockdowns for covid. She has been arrested five times for protesting during lockdown and has faced trial for four charges. She is currently waiting for a date for judicial review and high court appeal on the right to protest during lockdowns and her conviction for filming Gloucester hospital during lockdown.
Debbie recently started the ‘Keep it Cash’ campaign; a street based grass roots initiative touring the UK to energise and kick start communities to take action to save cash.
Eleanor from ONE MIND CAN gave an inspirational talk about how to create a new society based on holistic principles and sacred geometry. Eleanor says – Our vision is that we recognise the abundance and potential in ‘we the people’, that each individual is valued, and supported to be able to make a contribution to the life-force of the community. One Mind CAN have brought through a simple self-governing proposal for Community Assemblies. The blueprints and accompanying frameworks create a complete subsystem that empowers communities to self-organise, self-lead and anchors the decision-making process at the local, area and National level back to our communities. The 25 sector system is run in circles of 5, 7 or 12 community representatives; tasked with over-seeing Community Steering groups to bring through the community manifestos, strategies and local action plans, to ensure all are contributing their piece to the whole, and that community objectives and needs are being met.
