30 years ago Dorothy Day died peacefully in New York City leaving a legacy of 180 radical Catholic Worker communities practising the acts of mercy to the poor and nonviolent resistance to the war making state.

10 days later in New York City John Lennon, a voice of a generation was slain and silenced.

The Watfford Army Recruitment Centre continues recruiting for a war on Afghanistan that has now gone longer than WW1 and WW2 combined. With, at last count ,404 British military fatalities and uncounted Afghan dead part of the consequence of the invasion of Afghanistan.
