We need to maintain integrity and credability, if we rant and personally attack anyone (and god knows I have had reason too, and might have once or twice when I am at bursting point) we will play right into their hands. We need one clear and concise voice that only relies on fact and reality in law, if we step out side of that we will fail, because the odds are stacked against us, it is the way the system has been set up. They are given the benefit of doubt , while we are accused and guilty until proven innocent, this is how it is, right now. I have been lied about, threatened and sickened by the levels they will stoop, but if I do as they are trying to force me to, then I am no better than them.
I totally agree with jax and chilly, we need numbers and action, but it needs to be done in the right way. The system is flawed, so you use the system against the system, in a professional manner with integrity. To divide and conquer is ancient, because it works. We need cohesion and unity. If we scatter and retreat, they will hound us out of the trade. Bullies don't fare well in the light of a crowd of people who stand firm. Get your names down with the Federation. It is about numbers and one voice. They have integrity and know the system, I speak from experience, THEY ARE THERE WHEN EVERYONE (THATS EVERYONE), TURNS THEIR BACKS, PUTTING IN THE HARD YARDS, ALL THEY ASK FOR IS YOUR SUPPORT, NOT MONEY OR TIME JUST SUPPORT,JUST BE A MEMBER, IT IS THAT EASY, OR ARE WE IN SUCH A COUNTRY THAT TO BE A MEMBER OF AN ACTION GROUP GIVES THE AUTHOURITIES AN EXCUSE TO SINGLE YOU OUT?
