Posthumous Green Award

March 25, 2010 at 8:57 am Leave a comment

Still in Chile – this week’s award goes to the wonderful Pablo Neruda, whose battle with leukaemia ended just ten days after the bombing of the Moneda Palace (see Allende). I can’t claim to be familiar with the entire obra, but I know some bits and bobs and the guy was sound on politics and ecology, which makes him a Green! My favourite lines are:

“Siempre los ricos fueron extrajeros/Que se vayan a Miami con sus tias”

Just think bankers and you’re on the right track!

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
