Quote: A man from Holland trying to explain why they allowed the Nazi infiltration into their country and rather easily...

“Having a sense of protest is not the same as translating it into relevant action”


Quote: "Everywhere I hear the sound of marching charging feet boy
Cuz summers here and the time is right for fighting in the street boy
Hey think the time is right for a palace revolution
Cuz where I live the game to play is compromise solution
Cuz in sleepy london town theres just no place for a street fighting man no
Hey said my name is called disturbance get down
I'll shout and scream I'll kill the king I'll rail at all his servants"

I am not sure his protest via destroying his historical/heritage war art has really got his point across for change.

Quote:Anti-pipeline movements, like the 700 km march across Canada, indig​enous lawsuits, and encamp​ments that stand directly in the path of pipeline development, are part of a gruelling battle inspiring people across Canada to action. One such Canadian is artist Peter von Tiesenhausen, a sculptor, painter, and video/installation artist based in Demmitt, Alberta, who has managed to keep pipeline developers off his land for 17 years through a combination of art and legal acrobatics.

Quote:o how did you claim your actual land as a work of art?
​One of the really important pieces on my land was this white-picket fence. The picket fence is probably 100 yards or less, within 100 yards of where they wanted to build this pipeline. I [plan to] extend it 8 feet every year for the rest of my life and I've been doing that for 25 years. It got me thinking, where does this piece end? Does it end at the actual structure of the fence or the things growing around it, growing through it, that are part of the photography, the documentation of it? I realized at that point that [the fence], and the other sculptures and pieces and incursions and conceptual works, were actually integral to that piece of land and to my practice.



Very impressive and how symbolic using a white picket fence; it speaks miles. thumbsup.gif

Quote:Japan had argued that Australia's suit was an attempt to force its cultural norms on Japan, equivalent to Hindus demanding an international ban on killing cows.

I just can't get over the above f*kd up reasoning by Japan!

Quote:Nevertheless, environmental groups rejoiced.

Activist Pete Bethune, a New Zealander who has clashed frequently with Japanese whalers in attempts to stop their hunt, said "justice was served" by the ruling.

"The court dissected their scientific program, pulled it to bits and it proved that the amount of science is tiny relative to the commercial aspects," he said.

He said that if Japan had prevailed, it could have led other countries to begin whaling in the Antarctic and eventually a full commercial Japanese whaling program.


Pete Bethune..."Sea Shepherd Treated Me Like A Used Condom".

Quote:On January 7th, 2010, Bethune lost his prized trimaran “Ady Gil” after a collision with a Japanese whaling vessel. Then came the bold move to board a whaling ship under the cover of darkness, followed by jail time in Japan, subsequent release, and a very public falling-out with Sea Shepherd in October. He later released a memoir about his adventures and went on to form his own ocean conservation group called “ECO” or “Earthrace Conservation Organization”.


Keep on, keeping on! thumbsup.gif
