Activism and... Letters

When I was younger and more active in the peace movement, I would say to people who said “I was once in CND”, or who were a bit too old for active service: why once? You can still write!

Pithy letters to the press – that's one thing you can write – or inspiring verses if you’re a bit of a poet. And of course people who are in prison - who've gone the distance - need support.

Now I’m in the category of the has-been-active supporters, but I can still lay down in the street with the best of them. It’s getting up again!
