COVID – When ‘we the people’ say “NO!”

Tracking the progress of countries returning to life.  I won’t call it normal because we don’t know what that means anymore.  We allow “normal” to be deleted from our lives and memories practically overnight – it will happen again.

Hi everyone just posting this in relation to all the salons putting up videos and posts to get the government to listen to us and lift the lockdown before it’s too late
I’m not one for videos 🤭
I’d rather write ✍️
It’s been over 200 days since we closed our doors and yet we still haven’t got a date.
This is so detrimental to my business and thousands of other businesses too
Some will not re-open and some may only last a few months because things are going to get really hard when we do open.
We have bills that are piling up as we can’t afford to pay them.
The government will tell you there’s lots of support out there for us and I can tell you that not true.
The supports are business loans which to me who in their right mind would apply for one when we’re not sure if our business is sustainable, we would be turned down anyway 🙄
I receive the lowest payment on PUP
We receive a grant of 10% of our weekly turnover which is just not enough.
We received a grant after the first lockdown from the commercial rates we paid in 2019 to help us with getting our salons ready to re-open and to be honest with all the money we spent with screens, sanitizer, disposable capes and towels, health and safety training, PPE and fixed costs it was not enough.
Don’t get me wrong I’m grateful for it but two more lockdowns came after that and no support.
We did everything that was asked of us and it still wasn’t good enough.
We need family friends and clients to stand with us because we can’t do it on our own.
Shout as loud as you can, email your local tds and tell them what it means to you
They need to hear it.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me throughout this it won’t be forgotten
But if we don’t get open soon the business I built from scratch will be gone.
I just posted a couple of photos just to let you know I’m trying my hardest for myself and my staff so they have a job to come back to.
Thanks everyone and I really hope I get to see you all soon 😉
Maureen ❤️

MANIFESTO
PORTUGAL RE-OPEN MOVEMENT
This manifesto is aimed at aggregating all sectors of economic activity which:
◾ were forced to close;
◾ required to reduce their working hours;
◾ have had their revenue reduced by the already recession caused by the management of the pandemic;
◾ by restricting times when they can no longer sell certain types of goods or services.
Within this framework, sectors such as catering, nightly establishments, arts and shows, local accommodation, traditional commerce, shopkeepers, personal care sector, TVDE and tourist animation companies, tuk-tuks, taxis, public transportation travel and tourism etc
We bring the following points to this manifesto.
(i) End of the work ban and restrictions on working hours for all sectors, as everyone already has health hygiene and safety requirements for their operation.
(ii) All sectors are respected and treated equally by the government. (all sectors are important for the economy).
(iii) In order for business to continue and be able to resume, we demand that the processes be red tape, keeping their employees and thereby helping with the difficult process of erecting the country at present, avoiding being held hostage to the lines of credit that will take away our autonomy.
(iv) Let society open definitively, as there is no longer any plausible justification for destroying all these businesses, as well as for all the families that depend on them.
We subscribe to the international protocol for the reopening of society: https://www.pandata.org/protocol-for-reopening-society/
We don’t want grants; we want to work immediately
An analysis in 2020 clearly shows the difference between countries that have made containment vs those that have not done so: the latter are clearly better both at health and at economic level.
Protecting health by destroying the economy can never deliver good results.
It is not difficult to predict, as has been the case, thousands of small business owners failing to create a consequent work drops and unemployment.
Following the promulgation of Decree-Law n. o 6-A / 2021 of 14 January and after an assessment of the facts present consistent with our moral and ethical principles, as well as the spirit and letter of the Portuguese Constitution
We invoke Article 45. of the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic – Right to assemble and to demonstrate.
We will open our establishments as a form of protest / demonstration, in coordinated resistance, on days to be defined without their ongoing activity within them, thereby complying with existing legislation.
We want concrete actions to lift containment measures and restrictions on work.
If we don’t get solutions from the competent authorities, in next action, we will open again and invoke Article 21-Right of Resistance.
We therefore call on all entrepreneurs and employees to review this manifesto, to join us and refuse to stop doing their business by invoking Article 45. of the CRP: Right of assembly and demonstration.
Let’s Reopen Portugal: Hunger and misery are the biggest causes of death in the whole world.
Protecting public health can never be done blindly, irresponsibly delaying other deaths to the future, annihilating basic rights, freedoms and guarantees.
Everything can be done in a balanced way, and the first step is to let the economy resume immediately, so that it is possible to generate money to invest in SNS, so that we can work free from fear of death, and crippling illnesses, having the confidence that the SNS is there to take care of us and our people.
This movement has no partnership or political motivation, only job-generating entrepreneurs and workers who can’t be without their bread earnings, nor fail to generate money for both the economy and their employees.
