An Occupiers Perspective
(I’ve re written the poem ‘if’)
If you can keep your footing when all about you

Being a stylist as well as an activist, I decided it was time to take the fracking protest to London Fashion Week (LFW). I think it is time the media and the public realise that activists come from all walks of life and not just the fringes of society. It is all of our duty[…]Read more →
An argument for the population renewing their commitment towards a shared vision of what we create.
Contained in capitalist culture is the rags to riches story, it subdues criticism and fetishises a manmade value system, “perceived” value. It is easy to observe where this value has been corrupted and does not reflect the value of[…]Read more →
I just left a sham of a Q&A, held by Met Police and Mayor of London office – in Brixton. 75% was propaganda, not Q&A.
