Land of the propagating magnets

These magnetic ribbons were everywhere in California (and I have seen some of the creeping up here) This one made me laugh - and shudder. War propaganda appropriating the peace ribbon, in camoflage - good to wear in any war zone.

2nd Video: Peace Rally to end warcrimes inflicted on the Lebanese people

Here's another short video from the peace march in Montreal last weekend. It's the same speaker in my previous video post, but I felt that it is still important to let our collective voices be heard on this matter.

Venice Beach Busker

On a trip to Los Angeles last week - I went to the infamous venice beach - and saw this guy busking...slightly abusive to the crowd, he wouldn't let anyone leave or go on with his show unless he reached X amount of dollars (that he did, a few times - but, hey everyone's gotta earn a living.) His show was entertaining nonetheless - so check it out. A little light hearted fun...

Montreal Peace March for Israel out of Lebanon

Today in Montreal, 65 000 people congregated peacefully in Parc Lefontaine to protest against the injusticeful massacres that Israel is inflicting in Lebanon - and continues to do in Occupied Palestine. Walking in solidarity downtown, and speaking out against the Israeli war crimes and the US and Canadian compliance (and US funding) - the signs, the chants, the united view of many Canadians and others in the global community are demanding that Harper uphold what Canada stands for, what the United Nations stands for, and for Israel and America to follow international law - and to stop the killing of innocent people, and the demolition of culture.

The video (I am trying out youtube) is at Guy-Favreaux building downtown.
