I am a peace activist who believes that destroying people's dignity by destroying their homes, schools, roads etc. is not the way to peace. The military has got to be replaced with civilian diplomats who treat people as human beings with human rights. 27 foot walls, illegal settlements, apartheid policies, unequal treatment of citizens, military supremacy has not brought the two sides anywhere near to peace with justice. The village of Al Aqaba is a peaceful place and deserves to be treated with dignity. We have supported this village financially through contributing to The Rebuilding Alliance.
I hope the mankind will save & spare all animal & human lives for their intrinsic value!
I currently work in a voluntary capacity as an advocate supporting individuals against injustice. Formerly a councillor on Birmingham City Council i left the Labour Party and joined the Socialist Labour Party led by Arthur Scargill who fought against Thatcher's attack on working people. I have three beautiful grandchildren and I want to see them grow up in an unpolluted world where human values prevail over greed and injustice.

Passionate yet grounded, interesting and interested, a fighter but a lover, a teacher yet an eternal student, defender of the defenseless, if I am anything, I am originally me.
