CONVERSION PARADE A BIG SUCCESS
Singer/songwriter Tom Neilson from western Mass. unveiled his new song, "Fools No More," at the parade and then sang a few more songs at the potluck supper we held after the parade at a local church. It was great to see good numbers of people had come from places north and south of Portland to be with us. Tom will sing on Sunday here in Brunswick at a benefit concert to raise funds to pay production costs of my cable TV show called "This Issue." Sam Colson and David Brooks, the two guys that produce my cable show in Bath, were at the parade. Sam was pushing a bomb down the street and David was filming the whole event and plans to edit it and then put it on the cable station.
On Monday I head to Colorado Springs, Co. for a couple days. Protests will be held there at the annual convention of the proponents of war in space. Citizens for Peace in Space, led by Bill Sulzman, will be hosting me and I will speak in the Springs and then travel to Denver and Boulder for talks as well. It's always fun to protest with the folks in Colorado Springs as they are very creative and have been at it for a long time. The group there is one of the founders of the Global Network, and along with the Florida Coalition for Peace & Justice, have been continuously protesting Star Wars longer than any other local group in the U.S.
