Poster dudes! Please make this poster...
You need the picture of William Burroughs, which you will find here
. Maybe there should be a title, "William says:"
William has a speech bubble saying:
Any body of men will be found to contain ten to fifteen percent of incorrigible troublemakers. In fact, most of the misery on this planet derives from this 10 percent. It is useless to try and reeducate them, since their only function is to harm and harass others.
Then: (this could be either inside or outside of the speech bubble)
At the Forest, it is important that the space is as open and inclusive as possible. However, we feel strongly that our staff (including volunteers) have the right to work without being subjected to any kind of negative or threatening behaviour
. Also, members of the general public should not feel threatened by other people. This means the space and the people in it should be treated with respect at all times
If anyone feels they have been treated unfairly by a member of our staff, the only kind of correspondence we will enter into is that which is rational and considered - preferably in writing. Working in the Forest environment is never easy, and we fully expect our staff will occasionally make mistakes, and that people may feel aggrieved as a result. However, making a member of our staff feel uncomfortable in any way is strictly forbidden in this space
Anyone who does make a member of staff feel uncomfortable, for whatever reason, will be asked to leave. If you are asked to leave, please do not stay around and make someone's life a misery by arguing and refusing to accept their decision
. Our staff's decisions must be respected as they are the people responsible for the Forest at the time when they are working.
Anyone resisting a request to leave the Forest will increase their chances of being permanently barred form the premises. Barrings are decided upon by a team of experienced Forest volunteers and are not negotiable, except in writing
If you have any complaint about the Forest, its staff or how you have been treated you should put it in writing and send it to us
. We promise to discuss it at a meeting, and if you ask for a reply we will write back to firstname.lastname@example.org
