My absolute favourite. So much respect that you’re still standing up and singing out to try and limit the climate catastrophe locally and globally.

Just reading that has my heart racing 😢💕

Is dead woman's bottom there anymore, or is it just part of the hole? I remember it being a breathtaking beautiful spot, was a tiny hamlet, I took nomad there and we sang around the fire, was yellow submarine James birthday, I believe that you sang that song then.

i absolutely love this, and remember Whatley Quarry and Hinkley C protests in the 90s as they were among my first. Such an incredible heartfelt anthem, i used to sing it at security guars at Newbury. So frustrating that it's still so relevant today. 🙁

you are such troupers....IM so glad I found sieze the day..much love and respect to you all. x
