In days of old if I wanted to change something, I would have write a letter, make a phone call or have a conversation. Now, all I have to do is click 'like' on a Facebook page, and the world changes. Well, maybe it is not quite so simple. Nothing beats the personal when it comes to activism but I suspect Facebook pages set up as a protest or to get something done do play their part in the bigger mix.
I joined the Facebook group to save the Leas Lift in Folkestone, England. Saved it has been but I think this video was taken before the campaign to save the lift got underway. The lift works by gravity and the transfer of water. Pretty cool hey, and it uses little energy. You only need to watch a minute or so to see it working but the whole clip is interesting enough.
