Just got my new bio (below) and feeling truly blessed to have been on this journey for the past four and a half years. I hope for many more memories to cherish and share with you all. NEVER underestimate the power of the internet - it is ours as long as we continue to use - and fight for it. Martin first came under the ecological spotlight after he asked the world leaders a question on CNN in 2009. The CNN + YouTube debate on Climate Change received over 5000 entries from across the global community. Martin's question - an extract from his poem, "Global Warning", was used to open the debate - which was broadcast from the United Nations Climate Change Summit to a global audience of over 200 million households. In 2010, Martin embarked on a UK tour in Association with Amnesty International. He used this time to raise awareness for the global launch of the "Control Arms" campaign. His poem, "Control Arms - Speak Out Now" was featured as an example of "diverse voices speaking out" alongside Andrew Feinstein a ...
Dear Manager,I am a regular shopper in your store and I am deeply concerned that you are selling Israeli produce such as pretzels, herbs and fruit etc. I would like to ask you to remove these Israeli products, since they come from a country which continues a brutal and illegal military occupation of the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Much Israeli agricultural produce comes from illegal settlements on Palestinian land, although it is routinely mislabeled as coming from within Israel's borders.Even before the latest mass killings of the population of Gaza, the Palestinians have suffered long enough. The occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip is now in its 40th year, the longest military occupation in the world. This occupation is in contravention of numerous International Laws and conventions. Human rights organizations such as Amnesty International have noted that over 4,000 Palestinians, most of them unarmed civilians and including over 1000 children, have been killed in the past 6 years by Israeli ...
"The area compromising the OPT [Occupied Palestinian Territories] is made up of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip – areas that Israel occupied in 1967 and has continued to control during the more than four decades since then." ~ Amnesty International.
Well documented (by an independent organization) racism by the Israeli government with no security component at all: " In the West Bank, including in East Jerusalem, Israeli forces demolished scores of Palestinian homes, forcibly evicting families and leaving hundreds of people homeless. The targeted homes lacked building permits, which were systematically denied to Palestinians. At the same time, the authorities sharply increased the expansion of Israeli settlements on illegally confiscated Palestinian land, in violation of International Law. " - Amnesty International:
10 Palestinians killed by the Israeli soldiers in the previous 2 days in the West Bank and Gaza, including the tragic shooting at point blank range of Birzeit student Saje Sayel. Yet let's look forward to British Prime Minister David Cameron cosying up to Netanyahu tomorrow, ignoring the fact that Amnesty International has declared Israel's practices as tantamount to war crimes
That's from an Amnesty International report on Palestinian refugees - not in the West Bank or Gaza, but in Lebanon.
