Avaaz G8+5 Climate March – Rostock, Germany

Video slide show of Avaaz.org’s G8+5 Climate March in Rostock, Germany.


The background music is an instrumental piece by Hepnova. The inspiration for the piece came from my travels in the Nordic countries. In the piece, I attempt to evoke the awesome powers of nature, as well as the fragile balance of the polar regions.

STOP THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS

Oppose the theft of Iraqi oil

The Iraqi Parliament will soon vote on a US-backed law that could hand too much oil revenue and control to foreign corporations.

A Sunni, Shia and Kurd Parliamentarian are planning to stand together and present this petition to the Iraqi Parliament. They want us to help them show that the world supports Iraq’s right to its own oil and its own future.
