IRAN: THREE AMERICAN HIKERS AND GEO-POLITICAL IGNORANCE

I tried to sign the petition today for the three American hikers detained by the Iranian authorities nearly six months ago, for accidentally crossing into Iran while hiking. It’s so perverse how much illegitimate authority there is in the world. Anyway, I couldn’t sign because I already signed a few months ago. This is what I tried to write this time:

“Outrageous, cruel and yet another example of the state, geo-politics and ignorance and hatefulness trumping human rights and dignity.”

If you get a chance, and if it appeals to you, appeal back and sign it. The situation is absurd in an often demented and cruel world. Thank god for love and solidarity and kindness, and humour. Yes, thank god for humour! May Josh, Shane and Sarah come home safely, and come home soon,

Lots of love,

Pete
