Born November 3rd 1949. Pacifist activist since 1968. My 1st
demonstration, which was about British aircraft technology that was
being used on US aircraft in Vietnam. This was outside of a company
called Elliott Automation, which was at some time owned by
GEC/English Electric. Now at the time I was interested in Tape
Recording, & so took my tape recorder upon the demo, &
recorded a few interviews with some people I meet on it. I still
have it someplace in my old theatrical hamper ( something that I
once rescued from the trash ).
It’s a funny thing about going to an event where you know no
one. You can get to know & get close to some people, but might
never meet them ever again. That is the way it used to be. This was
also the 1st time that I ever got to meet & Anarchist, &
find out about Anarchist ideas.
For me there was something small, which had a very long term impact
upon my life too. I was handed a leaflet about The Peace Pledge
Union, which I then joined. The rest is History.
You can read about this demonstration in Peace News for November
