Please abide by the new lockdown, protect the NHS and save lives | Zac Arnold

As the situation with Covid-19 continues to deepen and with an abject failure of leadership and competence to take the fight to this pandemic, our small collective actions are often the best we can hope for.

Please abide by the new National Lockdown wherever possible, only leaving your home if absolutely necessary for your physical and mental health or if another exemption applies.

Together, we can get through this and build a better world that puts people and planet before profit and power. But to do this we must again stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.

I am ashamed to have shared a platform with Debbie Hicks | Zac Arnold

Over the past week the privacy and safety of patients and staff in Gloucestershire’s hospitals has been put at risk by the actions of a particular individual holding particularly unsavoury opinions.

NHS staff are putting themselves at risk day in day out to protect lives whilst a minority of individuals with no respect for anyone other than themselves throw it all away.

I’m ashamed to have shared a platform with this person in the past and apologise for doing so. Together, we can work together to create a better world and we can only do that from a foundation in solid facts and humility. Not paranoia, manipulations and selective memory.
