I live in a community of 16 people aged 1 to 65, (plus others who come and stay). This takes up most of my time.
A little more about me:
I co-ordinate the functioning of the community I live in.
I write - mainly poetry - and belong to Indian King Poets/Camelford Poetry Stanza. I read poetry (out loud).
I do advocacy for people.
Leonard Cohen, above all artists, is an enduring delight.
I am involved in the campaign to FREE BRADLEY MANNING!
Projects I’m working on:
Supporters of the campaign for Bradley Manning's freedom want to continue to focus attention on his case, and to use the time this play is being performed in Wales to increase public awareness of the important issues it raises.
Bradley's Court Martial officially began on 23rd Feb with his 'arraignment' and since then he has remained at Fort Meade waiting for the next step towards his trial - the court reconvenes 15th/16th March and then we should know the dates of further hearings.
The actual trial looks likely to be this summer, so the timing of this production is significant as it will probably be one of the last chances to register public support for him.
Although Bradley (if he is the person responsible for the leaks) has assisted the public by giving us hard evidence of widespread abuses, he has been charged with 'aiding the enemy', a charge which can carry the Death Penalty, and for which the US government may seek a penalty of Life without Parole. Bradley is therefore in considerable danger.
At this critical time, Bradley needs to know that we care; that we think it matters what happens to him - and, perhaps more crucially, this needs also to be made clear to the US government.
I'm one of the people trying to co-ordinate this....
