Earlier this month, millions around the world took to the streets to call for action to tackle climate change. In April thousands joined protests in London organised by campaign group Extinction Rebellion. "There's nothing wrong with being a hippy," says the group's strategist Ronan Harrington.
There will always be some who will take it as an insult, just like they find the negative in everything. Personally as long as it doesn't hurt or cost money I don't give a Fuck what people call me...😛👍
I wasnt born early enough to go to Woodstock but still in time to get involved in the Convoy,Greenham Common etc.I remember being in awe of the seemingly wise well worn ones in velvet sandals and beads.I got a big motoribke and was sort of on the fringes of everything.Remember having a mostly good time though.There were some rich kids that could afford to opt out and wax lyrical who bought lots of land to "live the dream"seemed contrary to the ideals.Ive just flitted about doing all sorts.Hippy? among other things.

I've sort of assumed if 'hippy' is the worst thing someone can come up with to call you then you're doing okay I did have someone ask me once if I was 'one of them' and when I asked her what 'one of them' was she whispered, "You know - a hippy". Lol, the only time I had something similar was when someone asked me in the 90's if I was 'one of them' and when I asked her what 'one of them' was she said, "You know - IRA" - this was because my dad was Irish. Some people are very odd.
I do get called a hippy in an affectionate way by a couple of friends but I think this is just largely based on the fact I don't spend my Saturdays in Primark Lol
