Profile Information

My personal story:
I was born in Canada, moved to the U.S. when I was four years old, I kept my Canadian Citizenship even after serving 6 years in the U.S. Navy. I joined the peace movement when the US war with Iraq began. As a member of Veterans For Peace I drove Cindy Sheehan to Crawford Texas in August of 2005. Later that month, I drove the Impeachment Tour Bus into Louisiana to provide hurricane relief, I now live near New Orleans and help organize and document relief efforts.
Why I want peace:
If we don't stop war as a means of settling disputes between countries, we will not have peace, or any real sense of security.
Interests and activities:
video activism, environmental sustainability, volunteering for disaster relief
How I found
What I want to achieve here:
connect with other like minded individuals and groups to help New Orleans and the Gulf Coast recover from Hurricane Katrina and Rita.

Lower Ninth Ward Clean Up

Posted on August 25, 2007 at 7:07pm 0 Comments

I will be in the Lower Ninth Ward August 28th and 29th to clear debris and mow the weeds with my John Deere Tractor from lots that are being threatened with seizure via the New Orleans “Good Neighbor Plan”.

If any of you would like to help, bring your weed eaters and mowers to Tennessee St. in the Lower Ninth Ward, drive toward the lake.

You will see the big green tractor clearing lots of the remaining debris. I’ll show…

The ‘Big Hug’ and the future of Jerusalem

The sting of all problems between Israeli and Palestinians lays in the Old City of Jerusalem. Her status has to be solved in such a way, that all parties fighting for control over her can agree upon.

On June 24, the ‘Big Hug’ will be hold in Jerusalem. Light workers from Israel, Palestine and from all over the world, ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’, will come together to bring warmth and energy to this city, embracing holding hands the Old City. If we bundle all our positive energies and bring these to Jerusalem, we can create peace to this exceptional place.

We are organizing the Big Hug to make the people aware –especially the Israeli and Palestinian inhabitants of Jerusalem- that there is a very shaped perspective for the city of Jerusalem as a city of peace: a new, undivided Jerusalem, as the capital of Palestine, Israel and at large.

Let go of the conflict concerning her command and dedicate the city to the Omnipresent. The Old City as a whole is His Temple. To give the walled Old City free to God, as a "Status Apart”, as an independent city, will be the most feasible way to come out the current impasse.

The Old City of Jerusalem must become an open city; a House of Prayer for all the Peoples. This perspective is written down in the Holy Books, this is the perspective we, as ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’ embrace as well as solution. But how many people does already notice this hopeful point of view?

What I saw in Jerusalem and also everywhere else where I meet Islamic and Jewish people is, that not so many persons really think about a future for Jerusalem. Most of the time, they stick with old ideas that the Old City of Jerusalem will always remain a part of Israel, or in opposite, that it will be absolutely a part of a new Palestinian state, as stolen land that has to be given back. With these visions, a future Jerusalem will be a divided city with an East Palestinian and West Israeli part, with barbed wire and checkpoints in between, like the situation of the city from 1948-1967. Or, coming closer to an agreement, people suggest -like proposed in the “Geneva Accord” in 2003- to make a complicated dividing of the Old City in a Israeli and Palestinian part. That will mean that the small alleys will be split by walls and barriers too. The idea that a future Jerusalem will become a divided city, is something that we have to prevent.

There are living about 250.000 Palestinian and 500.000 Israeli rather close together in one city. Do they want to make a separation of Jerusalem in parts or do they choose, deep in their hearts, for unity? So my best friends, it is our task to inform the whole city that there is an alternative for the Jerusalem of today.

All lovers of a united Jerusalem will come together to encircle and embrace the Old City of Jerusalem with love and devotion. We have to encourage all inhabitants of Jerusalem to join the coming Big Hug, with the idea of a New Jerusalem that might be realized with their support.
