clean beach




A few days ago I went to check if a beach clean up would be necessary. Looked clean. Today I thought about the Ocean Initiatives and the beach clean ups I used to do and went to the beach. 7 black plastic bags, some transparent plastic sheets, a wine bottle, an orange toy shovel. 


Usually packaging shows German text, most trash is homemade. You will find Cyrillic letters - Russia is not so far away.  Sometimes south Asian letters - ship crew members are often from there. Polish trash, Italian, Danish, Swedish, English, ... But I never found Arabic trash. It looked like Ikea food and indeed - Swedish halal chicken grillers.

Christchurch

We must take a stand against the far right and white supremacists. 
We have to catch that stinking spirit of fascism that slipped out of the bottle in recent years.
It has been put there after the Holocaust. When leaders had decency.
NEVER EVER AGAIN.
My condolences to the families of the 50 dead.
Jacinda Ardern shows us as a head of state how to behave as a human being.

Happy Women's Day

Greetings to all of you brave women around the world!
I never thought hard achieved women's rights would be in danger in old democracies. 
My Grandmothers are turning in their graves.
Sisters lets keep on fighting.
