  1. event add-on: 16 Aug to 19 Sept – ‘Walkatjurra Walkabout – Walking for Country’ from Wiluna to Leonora, Australia.
    26 April – Mass Rally outside NPP Fessenheim, France
    April 15-25 – 5th International Uranium Film Festival 2015, Quebec, Canada.

  2. VFP 92 (Seattle, WA)would like to have a nationally know speaker for our annual tax day action on April 15 when we let the public know how much of their taxes go to the military. We think having David Swanson would be great if he is available.

    If he can be here for several days around that time we would get him
    a booking at Town Hall (and could do other bookstore events if he is
    doing a book tour). We’d also like other chapters of VFP to host him if
    he can be here a few days (Olympia, Tacoma, Bellingham,Spokane, and maybe even Portland).

    Please let us know if he would have the time and interest to come out to the Northwest and what costs we we need to cover. From the looks of his calendar, he is in great demand. If this is possible, we’d make a decision right away to commit to bringing him out around that time. Thanks for considering.

  6. Nichts ist drinnen, nichts ist draußen;
    Denn was innen, das ist außen.
    So ergreifet ohne Säumnis
    Heilig öffentlich Geheimnis!

    Freuet euch des wahren Scheins,
    Euch des ernsten Spieles!
    Kein Lebend’ges ist ein Eins,
    Immer ist’s ein Vieles.

    (J. W. Goethe)
