First hour: Harrison Gradwell Slater is a Ph.D. musicologist, composer, performer, teacher, mystery novelist, and anti-nuclear activist. He writes: I totally admire your work. Eliminating nuclear weapons will require a reconciliation of the Muslim and Christian worlds. The West is guilty of ‘false witness against Thy neighbor,’ one of the most serious sins in Christianity.
Harrison is working on a very interesting project:
Recently I sent emails to Hillary Clinton, Lady Gaga, Mairead Maquire, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Cynthia McKinney, Carminho (a Portuguese fado singer), Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, Her Royal Empress Michiko of Japan, and Cindy Sheenan, to invite them to a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
It will be in October 2012. The purpose is to end nuclear weapons on this planet.
There will be a film made about “The Path to Santiago: A Woman’s Voice.” I’m not sure what form it will take, but it will evolve. Several young filmmakers will be there.
Second hour: Radio host and journalist Mark Glenn of the Crescent and Cross Solidarity Movement, who recently responded with all guns blazing (metaphorically) to a death threat from the Jewish Defense League, which is listed as a leading terrorist group by the FBI.
