Benny Zable hails Nimbin from New York where he has just been to an overflowing, charisma packed concert starring Pete Seeger and the Walkabout clearwater concert. Benny has this to say:
When your presenters play the Pete Seeger concert get them to sign the
petition Pete Seeger for Nobel Prize
Some good news story.
On Thursday I attended at the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, the Peace Boat's 3rd
Annual People Building Peace Concert: A Celebration of Initiatives for a
Nuclear-Free World In Remembrance of Nagasaki Day.
I hung my dove and dolphin flags above the stage and the peace sign flag
bottom right hand side of stage. I put on my costume and mask and performed
around the plaza in my usual way. Towards the end of the rally/concert, I
danced with the flags.
It was a great day. Felicity Hill and Senator Joe Valentines daughter were
Pamela Timmins who filmed me at Indian Point, helped me set up a display on
the curbside that attracted Pete Seegers attention. To my delight he
responded to my request to be photographed and filmed with him. I was
introduced to Phil Sauer's at the Peace Film Festival by Pam who turns out
to know John Seed. Phil Sauers is a main player in the water not bombs
campaign that was also inspired by Pete Seeger. This is his website:
Anyway he introduced me to the Pete Seeger appreciation page for you to
check out and get inspired. <http://www.peteseeger.net >
There is also a petition to nominate Pete Seeger for the 2008 Nobel Peace
Please sign and post around.
Yours Benny Zable
