Earl Scruggs anti Vietnam War action–0SbX8

From Wikepedia:

On November 15, 1969, Scruggs played his Grammy-winning “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” on an open-air stage in Washington, D.C., at the Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam, becoming one of the very few bluegrass or country-western artists to give support to the anti-war movement.[8] In an interview after his performance, Scruggs said:[9]

I think the people in the South is just as concerned as the people that’s walkin’ the streets here today … I’m sincere about bringing our boys back home. I’m disgusted and in sorrow about the boys we’ve lost over there. And if I could see a good reason to continue, I wouldn’t be here today.

message for Caroline Lucas regarding right to peacefully assemble

From Facebook exchanges this morning… conclusion:

Banjo Nick

PC 4089
How does he remember our half hour conversation? Can he confirm that he stated ‘busking is illegal in Brighton’? Does he understand that ‘drumming is not welcome in Brighton’ is not legally enforcable. The banjo is a drum with strings on afterall.

Keef on BBC Radio 4 Front Row yesterday

Banjo Nick

Keef on Radio 4 now! : ‘It is marginally easier to rock than to roll’…brilliantly self-aware interview from Mr Riff promoting his very stripped down solo album. On songwriting: ‘songs are floating through this room if you can pick them up’…paraphrasing. Great praise for Charlie Watts. Very guarded on Third World War with Mick Jagger in 1980s…but claims that 99 per cent of the time they are locked together like brothers. His ritual words to Water Rat Ronnie as they go onstage to ‘levitate’ before 60,000 people: ‘Come on old boy, let’s get a couple of hours of peace and quiet!’. Humble about his uniquely syncopated guitar sound: ‘One day I’ll get the hang of it’ (smoker’s laugh). Utterly charming and as sharp as ever after 50 years of enriching us with his dazzling talent. Claims there is no physical problem with performing…less exhausting than 30 years ago as junkie…no plans to retire. Long live Keef!

Baroness Worthington..shame on you!,_Baroness_Worthington

Has this Labour Party Peer seen the devastated landscapes of North Dakota as she pipes up in favour of toxic fracking?

Water usage and chemical contamination…millions of gallons per frack…is the key issue…is she capable of visualising the proliferation of fracking pads that will result.

Jeremy Corbyn for Leader of Labour Party. Corbyn is against this brutal assault on our most precious resource, H2O.

Obama speaks of ‘renewables revolution’

Obama’s message on renewables ‘revolution’, the heartening news that Americans are turning to renewables to keep their bills down hardly got a mention on pro-toxic fracking Today BBC Radio 4 this morning. As the Labour Party vetting of new members is worthy of the Nazi Party. What are the Labour Party values that Corbyn does not stand for?

Illegal invasion of Iraq? Bailing out failed banks and rewarding criminal finance sector? The death of Higher Education, humanities? The atom bomb? Toxic fracking? Nuclear power, a curse on future generations because there is no long-term solution for nuclear waste storage? Support for the arms trade?

Corbyn for Leader!
