Watching the death and destruction in Ukraine of innocents on our screens can leave us overwhelmed with feelings of helplessness. What can I do? Apart from giving to those fleeing the conflict, we can:
Be Bold! Be Defiant! Be Daring!
Tie a ribbon at a traffic light!
Our self-centred leaders have failed us.
Humanity is at a crossroads. We have reached the point at which rogue world leaders and politicians threaten our very existence and future.
As far as we know we are unique in the universe, a precious planet full of life.
Now is the moment to stop our present path of death, suffering, destruction and disrespect to that life.
Now is the time to change direction, to a world dedicated to help, care, harmony, health and happiness. It is possible, we just need to show what we really want.
We need a visual demand to our leaders to end war and to respect life. A visual message they can’t miss and shines out to them wherever they go, on every street corner. A visual worldwide message we can all join in and easily express.
Our future and that of the ones we love are at stake here. This is a simple clear message from us all. A future of hope, care and love, NOT war, hate and destruction. Let the traffic lights across the world ‘blink’ out our message continually, day and night to our errant leaders.
A GREEN PLANET
‘Convert’ your local traffic lights into a beacon of hope, a message and a demand, simply by tying ribbons to their posts. Visual, effective, easy to do. How bold do you need to be?!
The present war that threatens to get out of control and threaten our very existence is taking place in Ukraine, right now. Put in simple language, “There is danger!”
Demand peace in Ukraine, if you want a better chance for you and your loved ones to live. That is why these are traffic lights for survival.
TIE YELLOW AND BLUE RIBBONS TO ANY TRAFFIC LIGHT POST WITHOUT THEM.
Send out that global universal message, for life, peace and hope. Don’t delay. DO IT SOON, DO IT NOW!
"President Zelensky of Ukraine has called for world protest at war on his country.
Well here is one we can all join in."
"These are traffic lights for peace, 'They are Traffic- lights-4-survival' !!"
This is a message to ALL world leaders, not just Putin...
For the name Putin, in any text that follows, you could read any name in the future, unless WE ALL, the caring population of the world, make a stand now.
Enough is enough.
Syria, Yemen and now Ukraine, the slaughter of the innocent gathers apace.
Make a stand for a better future world NOW! This is so simple to do, we can ALL join in and demand better from our leaders. Join in this traffic lights protest everywhere, throughout the world. Stand shoulder to shoulder with your brothers and sisters, children, grandparents, mothers and caring fathers in demanding a future we can ALL be proud of. A loving, caring harmonious, sustainable world where we look out for each other, not fight each other.
It is possible. NOW IS THE MOMENT! Seize and embrace it. Join this unique world protest now, each day getting bigger, getting larger, blinking its message out to ALL world leaders. WE CAN stop this carnage. Join this protest NOW!
TIE BLUE AND YELLOW RIBBONS AT THIS MOMENT TO YOUR NEAREST TRAFFIC LIGHTS . Why?
TO SYMBOLICALLY CONVERT THEM,
INTO THE FOLLOWING SIMPLE INSTRUCTIVE MESSAGE TO ALL WORLD LEADERS, PRESENT OR FUTURE:
Red light becomes
Amber light becomes
Green light becomes
A GREEN PLANET
Simple and instructive. A worldwide demand for better from those that purport to lead us.
We can ALL do this. This will start small, but it will gather pace, each Sunday coordinated worldwide, so they finally have to listen to us, the caring people of the world. Let the ribbons flutter, let the message ‘blink’ out peacefully into the night. This is no protest that fades away when the protesters go home. No, this gets bigger, gets louder, gets more noticeable until they, (OUR LEADERS), finally get the message and STOP the carnage.
Blue and yellow ribbons at the moment to show our support for the innocent victims in Ukraine caught up in a foreign leader’s ‘Gift’ of carnage and murderous destruction, (although any colour in the future could placed to celebrate diversity in nature).
SO SIMPLE TO DO. Join in the biggest, loudest, most visible, seen everywhere protest ever!
If you want a better world, do it now. Go to your local traffic lights, tie the ribbons and also join in the coordinated protest on Sundays, 12 noon.
Don’t just look on in horror and fear at Putin’s murderous war campaign in Ukraine, join in the traffic light protest. Any day, every day and coordinated 12 noon every Sunday until war ceases.
Why a traffic light? Because it carries and blinks out continuously our (we the protesters) simple clear world saving message: STOP WAR (red light) CHANGE TO (amber light) A GREEN PLANET (green light)
A very clear simple, instructive message and demand from the world backing up the United Nations votes. The lights blink out their message even in Moscow!
Turn your local traffic lights into a clear message to Putin and his like.
Ribbons and placards at the lights whilst ensuring that the lights can still function as the respected worldwide safety feature they are.
This message is so doable, so peacefully powerful, that we can all join in. Tell everyone you know. Encourage them to participate and join in. Post your protest at your lights on social media. Make this a simple world campaign that is peaceful yet powerful. Defy Putin. Do it now, encourage others, bring hope to the world, rather than Putin’s fear and despair.
Humanity united, simply, visibly, globally by this simple act that costs nothing and requires no organisers. You are your own organiser. The only cost is a few moments of your precious time here on a planet that supports us and deserves our support!
12 noon every Sunday, be there, make some noise, and broadcast it to others if you have the means.
We can stop Putin, we just have to get off our backside. Don’t just look on in despair do something besides giving aid to the refugees. Send a powerful peace-loving message to the despicable despot Putin. Do it as soon as you can. Encourage others, family, friends and neighbours. Bring hope joy and love for the world to see and unite in in stark contrast to Putin’s evil.
Sunday's Coordinated Protests
There is a coordinated protest at 12 noon each Sunday, but that is not convenient for everyone, so we encourage you if you cant make a Sunday protest, to simply go to the nearest traffic light at any time convenient to you. Tie ribbons, hold a banner or any message you wish to deliver to Putin and take a picture of your protest. Then post it on any of your social media you wish and to especially send a copy to our protest website, giving date and location of the traffic lights you are showing.
Purchase or make a ribbon.
Ribbons are available worldwide through outlets such as Amazon online, craft ribbons on eBay.co.uk, theRibbonRoom.co.uk and at Hobbycraft shops, or at some independent party and card shops.
It is also possible to make your own coloured ribbon click to find out how
WE CAN ALL DO THIS! NO COST. NO ORGANISATION. NO USE OF PRECIOUS RESOURCES. A WORLD UNITED IN HOPE AND DETERMINATION. A DETERMINATION THAT PUTIN AND HIS LIKE WILL NOT SUCCEED OVER THE GOODNESS IN HUMANITY.
Putin is taking us all to the brink of nuclear world war.
Putin has ignored and defied now a second overwhelming vote in the UN to cease his murderous war campaign on Ukraine.
Deliver a peaceful permanent message deep into the heart of Russia. Even Putin wont blow up the traffic lights in Moscow, for if he did, it would only make the message even more powerful!
This is so simple. We can all do this. Please join in. Spend a few moments of your time and encourage others to do the same.
What is TRAFFIC LIGHTS 4 SURVIVAL all about?
This is about getting a global message of strength of public opinion out to our leaders of nations and corporations, that we, the people of the world, want to survive in a peaceful, harmonious, sustainable future where there is hope and care for all and the planet as a whole. A world we can feel proud to hand on to our children and grandchildren and enable them to experience the wonders that it can provide in a sustainable harmonious, caring way.
How do I get involved?
First plan to go to your local traffic lights (or other traffic light of your choosing to meet and greet friends) when the designated time arrives.
Share your intention to be there on social media.
Spread the message of the traffic lights (stop war-change to-a green planet) to ALL you know and love. Share and plan with your contacts.
Decide what actions you plan to do there at the lights at the same time as respecting the safety aspect and highway function of the traffic lights.
Be safe. Be visible. Be loud. Broadcast hope and a demand for caring surviving world.
A GREEN PLANET
Get inventive, whilst at the same time ensuring that you uphold the intended safety feature of the traffic lights in their highway function.
Isn’t this just another crazy idea? A weak gesture?
NO! This is the strongest of messages to those like Putin and to all those who would defy the will of the majority of humanity.
Shouldn’t we just match force with force?
Yes! But with a different type of strong force. Match the show of death and destruction with a massive visible force of peace and love, of care and of hope for the future of ALL humankind.
So what’s new here?
A show of global protest that doesn’t let up. This is no protest that simply melts away when the crowds are gone, no, it even ‘blinks’ brighter its message in the darkness of the night. A message for us all. A message to unite us, not divide us. A means to all working together for the greater good of all.
Aren’t I just wasting my time going to a traffic light on an arranged, designated time?
Far from it. It is so doable! Most of the world’s population can do this. Visibly show disgust for the carnage and destruction of war. A message too that is permanent, an ever-present global message flashing continuously at the crossroads of humanity’s journey, at a point in time where we need to stop and contemplate where we want to go and change direction to a route of global survival.
YOU CHOOSE! NOW! We are at a crossroads. Ahead is a path to death and destruction OR a route to peace, harmony and hope for the future.
We can all do this, visibly, peacefully and powerfully. How? By simply sending a global message to the warmongers, the dictators of hatred, to those self- interested individuals: that the world wants and requires a better path. A path of peace, community, co-operation and care for each other and for the planet that vitally supports us and sustains us all.
Isn’t this a weak message and action?
No! This is not a weak message. It is a strong, loud, peaceful, non-threatening, permanent message we can all share in and join in with. A message and action that is not only doable by nearly all of us and repeatable simply globally, but, is also non-hypocritical in its action with virtually no resources nor finances required. Something that the poorest person to the individual corporate or religious or national leader can do and join in. All join in, rich or poor, strong or weak, young or old, passionately committed or seemingly apathetic! ALL can join in the message of hope for our future.
What should we do when we get there?
Make noise, hug each other, tie ribbons, celebrate the joy of life, get positively creative and share it on social media. Send out a clear, powerful message that we want to survive and are willing to do what it takes, together as one.
Do we want a red dead planet or a green living one?
