Japan Earthquake Relief

By admin - Last updated: Thursday, September 15, 2011

I was home in California when the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami struck Japan, and spent days watching the coverage on the news networks.

I found this earthquake relief T-shirt at Cafe Press.

Not in My Name Anti-Iraq War

By admin - Last updated: Wednesday, September 14, 2011

On the eve of the war in Iraq in 2003, Radio Sweden sent me to a course at the BBC in London. I remember watching the pre-invasion bombing on the TV in the lounge area outside the classroom.

There was also a protest march against the war through London on February 15 to Hyde Park. I joined the crowd in the park to listen to a number of speakers, including Tony Benn, who was masterful. Got this Not in My Name T-shirt from one of the stands set up by protest groups there.
