I pledge allegiance to all life
in its interdependent diversity;
and to the Planet upon which it exists;
one World, under the sky, undividable
with harmony and balance for all.

Dee’s ‘Dotes~Anecdotes of a Green Activist
Dee’s Dotes is my personal blog (click tab above). I write about my activist activities, including the peace movement, the Green Party, politics in general and other progressive issues ; and other topics in Utah and beyond.
Much of the content from the original blog has been incorporated in this site.
I am not a political analyst. I provide my opinions, experiences and perspectives straight from the heart.
NOTE: There was a hiatus of about 5 1/2 years (with a gap between 2012 and 2017 in the archives).

From the Human Rights Rally on Sunday, April 20:
Confrontation at the rally site
Confrontation between both sides of China/Tibet issue, April 20, 2008, Salt Lake City
Despite biting northwest winds with extreme wind chill factors, about 150 people came out for the Human Rights Torch Relay Rally today. A peace walk occured around Salt Lake city, followed by a rally with speakers. There was supposed to be music, but it was so cold that the program was cut short. I got to deliver my speech, but I cut it very short due to the temperatures.
The event did not go without incident. “Counter-protestors”, most likely bussed in to SLC and all cities along the route, supporters of the Chinese government, appeared along the peace walk route. I will be posting videos as I get them uploaded to portray what I cannot convey in words.
Here are some photos:
