There I was on a July morning,
I was looking for love.
With the strength
Of a new day dawning
And the beautiful sun.
And at the sound
Of the first bird singing
I was leaving for home.
With the storm
And the night behind me
Yeah, and a road of my own.

A swarm of bees in May
Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.

INTERVIEW-UK clampdown on climate protests sets 'disturbing precedent' - UN rights expert http://news.trust.org/item/20191021154702-2qrbp/ Britain's response to escalating climate protests on London's streets this month, with mass arrests and tighter restrictions, is consistent with a "global pattern of suppression" of environmental activists, said a U.N. human rights expert.

UN rights experts criticise London climate protest 'ban' before court hearing http://news.trust.org/item/20191016212817-br1cd/
A lawyer working with Extinction Rebellion climate protesters in London said the group hopes a court hearing on Thursday will rule that a police ban on their public gatherings this week is unlawful, as U.N. experts said it violated their human rights.
