MikeyPod 39 | Author and Activist Kathy Kelly (part 1 of 2)

Today’s show features the first half of an interview with Kathy Kelly, co- founder of Voices in the Wilderness, three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, and author of Other Lands Have Dreams: From Baghdad to Pekin Prison.

Ms Kelly spent time in a maximum security prison for planting corn on a nuclear missle silo, and for bringing medicine and toys to Iraq in open violation of the UN/US sanctions, she and other campaign members were notified of a proposed $163,000 penalty for the organization, threatened with 12 years in prison, and eventually fined $20,000, a sum which they’ve refused to pay.

Kathy mentioned the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee website as a resource for those of us who no longer wish to pay for this war.

A new MikeyPod project:

Portrait of Mary

Send a canvas to a Mary of any country and have her paste her
photograph. Have her send the canvas to the next Mary of any
country and have her do the same. When the canvas is filled up
with photographs of Marys, it should be sent back to the original
sender. The name does not have to be Mary. It, also, can be a fictional name, in which case the canvas will be sent to different
countries until a person with such a name will be found. The object
to paste on the canvas does not have to be a photograph. It can be a numeral figure, an insect or a finger print.

Yoko Ono
1962 spring

I am starting this piece this weekend, sending it first to Willing Warrior. From there he will decide the next recipient, and so on. All I ask is that each “Mary” e-mail me a photograph, and perhaps an audio comment or voicemail about the experience.


A shout out to my Pseudo-Valentine Wanda Wisdom.
