Mud mud mud...Mark Thomas and Venezuela

Had a good solid three days 'networking' at the Green Futures field at Glastonbury, Mark Thomas and Nick Hildyard were particulary inspiring with their fight over the BAE corruption scandal, Nick is suing No 10 at the present...this is real serious politics.

Everybody from Brigit Strawbridge to James Marriot to Merrick were there....very useful for pushing camp against climate change (see you outside Heathrow in August) and lots of over good stuff.

Danny please send me your poems so I can pirate them!

now on to Venezuela
