Notwestminster My friend Maryam is doing her best to stand in the way of the Orange Line Train, which is destroying heritage sites and displacing thousands of people in the city of Lahore.

Notwestminster My local democracy hero is the Blackpool Supporters Trust that are bringing open and democratic fan values to Blackpool Football Club.

Notwestminster Peter McFadyen

Notwestminster Churchill standing up for freedom

Notwestminster You can't say fairer than a councillor who will stand in front of a bulldozer for you, take part in your crazy schemes and notice when you're in trouble.

Notwestminster Test from Andy

Notwestminster My friend's mum, who is always prepared to get involved in things and take on some work. Even though I don't agree with her political views, I really respect her energy.

Same Skies collective West Yorkshire has several centres with big identities, Bradford, Hebden Bridge and more, not one dominant centre. How can we make this into creative strength and be a network not a hierarchy?

Same Skies collective A campaign to sort out city-region wide public transport. I often have to pay £8.70 to make a 19 minute journey for a one hour meeting. If you want to travel between places across the city-region but not through Leeds, forget it, it's torture. How can we make links between people and share ideas, innovation and enterprise when journeys are so horrible? Civic and business leaders need to step forward courageously and back a broad campaign that goes all the way to Whitehall, Westminster and The City of London if needs be.

Same Skies collective Strategic alliances between political parties (Green, Labour, Liberal, etc) to get candidates elected at local and parliamentary level who support the values of Power to the North. Elected institutions are a necessary part of change.

Same Skies collective Need to look at establishing local public banks like the German Sparkasse model. Lending to local SMEs and co-operatives and motivated by public benefit to local community. Providing safe and cheap banking to local authorities who benefit from profits. Not run by politicians but by public servants proud to work for public benefit for a salary (no bonus culture in public banks). Public banks are 25% of banking worldwide. Int'l speakers at public banking conference in Manchester Feb 20th. Regards Marie McCahery

Made in Huddersfield Fighting bbc giggy yikyttgv

Made in Huddersfield A young gentleman walks into my kitchen, wearing an old t-shirt,, worn trousers and backpack. Passes me a finger length feather, grey on one side, black on the other. Down the edge, a sliver of fluorescent blue and white stripes. A jay birds feather is his gift to me.

Made in Huddersfield Mist shrouds the valley in a veil. Blue sky above. An old engine rumbles through the moorlands.
