The week that started 8th June 2020

Rest, me too

Last week I told folks to rest, and this week I’m like, oh, wait, and me as well. Struggling to rest and sleep A LOT lately. It’s infuriating, and distressing, and exhausting.

Social justice

I attended The Ethical Case for Basic Income in a Pandemic with Guy Standing, hosted by Conway Hall. It was really interesting. One thing that gives me hope is that there are both left-wing and right-wing supporters of basic income. Personally, I’m advocating for a universal income, and/but I think a basic income would be an incredible start.

Over 100K people, including me, have signed a petition to Implement Universal Basic Income to give home & food security through Covid-19. Why not join us by signing? 🙂
