Tackling the oppression of Her Majesty’s subjects

Raising awareness of a deep seated systemic problem means informing the ‘victims’ and the ‘oppressors’.

With our history of Early Day Motions (EDMs) we’ve been addressing the monetary causes since 2002, trying to educate MPs.

Based on our latest EDM, we’ve now created a website that brings MPs and victims together: www.edm1297.info.

Some of the questions one has to ask oneself are:

  • are institutions achieving what they are supposed to?
  • if not, why not?
  • what on earth can I do?
  • what is worth doing?
  • which side am I on?
  • am I coping and staying positive by doing SOMETHING?
